Why is God angry with the USA!

Share

Like the children of Israel, we have also gone a whoring after other gods

The Lord God has place a special blessing on the USA, it was a land free from religious persecutions of the so lightcalled Mother Church. God placed special blessing on this land and on its people because they followed what they had for truth. Men, Women and their families were free to worship and believe as they will. Communities and towns were built around there Church and respect for God and for others was as naturel as drinking water. It was a time of people helping people no one needed the government to step in with a welfare check. Children took care of their parents and their Grandparents when the time came, it was a part of life and something that was done out of love.

If you read the Old Testament that is the way the children of Israel were directed to care for their family’s and loves ones, there was respect for the elderly.

If you are a parent what is the one most important thing you want your children to do, that’s easy, to obey what you said. Why because we have been where they are just now going and we have learned what is good and what is bad. We want only what is good for our children so that is the reason we want them to obey what we tell them. God is no different, God knows what is best and how we can live a happy, long, and holy life. It also shows out respect for others who are older and more knowledgeable then we are.

Our God only expects one thing from His created being and that is obedience to His word. Why because all heaven is at peace, rest, and eternal happiness because God knows what is best for everyone to be happy. But if there is someone there who is doing opposite of everyone else soon there will be discord, content, and hate. That is what happened when Satan rebelled, he was no longer happy just to have what God gave him he wanted more and the only thing more then what he had was to be God.

God proved His love for man in coming to this world and living a life of poverty, He was the gentle shepherd who cared for others who were in need. He took time to visit and bring healing to all who believed and had faith in Him, then at last He gave His life to pay the penalty of man’s sin. Ezekiel: 18: 20: The soul that sinneth, it shall die.

OK but why is God now so angry, why is He going to destroy this world, let’s take a look in the Bible and see if we can find the answer.

In the beginning God created a perfect world

Genesis: 1: 29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Our world was perfect until our first parent disobeyed the commandment of God and sinned. God knew for them to be happy they needed to trust the God who created them. So God made a simple test for them to see if they would obey or not
Romans 6:16: Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?

It was not long before Satan entered as a snake to deceive man into disobeying his God by making them believe God was holding something good back from them.

Within a thousand years of man sinning the world became so corrupt that God had to put a check on sin by destroying it or it would have destroyed the earth. Genesis 6: 5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

We can’t imagine how God must have felt to see His creation fall into sin and to see it to a point that a loving God would have to destroy His creation in order to stop its downfall.

7 So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”

But all was not lost, God has always had a people in every age who was true to Him, they were never the majority but only the few and sometimes as in the case of Noah only as few as 8 people. Genesis: 6: 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

The earth in Noah time was much like our world today it was filled with violence, hate, murders, and sexual immorality
look at what Jesus had to say 2000 years ago about the times we are living in Matthew 24:37: But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

The only thing different now then in Noah’s time is the teaching of false religion
All the people living before the flood made a chose to disobey God and enjoy living in sin.

After the flood man once again choose to live in sin and disobey God why because God said I will never again destroy the earth with a flood

Genesis: 11: 4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.

Again man choose to sin and not obey God so God confused their language so that they could not understand one another and scattered them across the face of the earth in order to once again put a check on sin.

After the tower Babel God found a man who loved and obeyed His Commandments, his name was Abraham. And God called Abraham out to a land that God would give his descendants if he would obey and keep Gods commandments. But God found that Abraham children were stiff neck and would not obey God. But because of the covenant that God made with Abraham God did all He could to save them.

Isaiah: 1: 2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth! For the LORD has spoken: “I have nourished and brought up children, And they have rebelled against Me; 3 The ox knows its owner And the donkey its master’s crib; But Israel does not know, My people do not consider.” 4 Alas, sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A brood of evildoers, Children who are corrupters! They have forsaken the LORD, They have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, They have turned away backward.

But God would not give up on them He did all He could do to help them all He could do to save them, look at verse 18 God is pleading with man telling them He will forgive them if they would only turn back to Him and do as He told them to do
18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. 19 If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; 20 But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
God is pleasing with man and telling him look if you will just obey my laws and keep my commandments all these blessings will be yours. Plus, I will give you eternal life in a paradise place that I am building for you.

Throughout the history of mankind dealing with his creator God it has been a history of nothing but backsliding, unfaithfulness, hate, and disobedience.

Look at some of the blessing that God has promise to give His people
Deuteronomy: 28: 1: “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:

But also look at some of the Curse’s that God has said would come by not keeping His Law and Commandments.

Deuteronomy: 28: 15 “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: 16 “Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. 17 “Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 18 “Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. 19 “Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. 20 “The LORD will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me.

How does God say we are to obey by observing very carefully all His commandments and His statutes, not just one but all of them?
Gods dealing with the children of Israel through a thousand years has been one of dealing with a people and religious leaders backsliding and refusing to obey as God has said to do.

Daniel: 9: 5 we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments. 6 Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land. 7 O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day—to the men of Judah,

The children of Israel substituted man made requirements in place of Gods commandments. But God still did not give them up, He sent prophets to give them warring of the coming judgement, but still they would not hear.

Finely God sent His Son His Only Son Jesus into the world to show to the world the love of the Father. John: 3: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Jesus CallingThis is so amazing: God the creator would leave His place in Heaven to come down to His creations level and become one of them in order to save them. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

All through the life and ministries of Jesus you will find a very humble and loving God. He did not come to judge the world but that the world through Him may be saved. His one aim was to show man the love of the Father, then He said if you love me you can do the same, Jesus said in John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. Very simple and very easy to understand, Jesus was saying do as I did; I kept my Father Commandments. Why do the Religious Leaders want to make this hard to understand, do as Jesus did and you can’t go wrong.

While in the world Jesus did all He could do to show man what love really was. He did many miracles right before the people and the Religion Leaders eyes, but they would not believe, they wanted a sign. Why because they were stiff neck and rebellious and so they turned their back on the salvation that God the Father has provided. Now 2000 years later they are doing the same thing they did back then.

In the Old Testament many times God had to deal hard with the children of Israel, He would aloud their enemies to come and destroy them because they refused to obey what God told them. Even with Jesus what did the Religion Leaders do: they killed the Son of God by hanging Him on a tree. If Jesus would come back today as the same humble loving and caring God He is; they would try to hang Him again, that is how far off they are from following the Truth in the Bible. They preach but not Gods word they preach their word.

Look at the curse and what God is telling us is going to happen and happen very soon.
Isaiah 24: 5: The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, Because they have transgressed the laws, Changed the ordinance, Broken the everlasting covenant.
6: Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, And those who dwell in it are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, And few men are left.
19: The earth is violently broken, The earth is split open, The earth is shaken exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again.

Romans 16:26: but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—
Revelation 14: 6: Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— 7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

God is looking for a people who will do His will, keep His Law, and obey His Commandments.
Isaiah: 29: 13 Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

He is looking for a people who will do as He asked them to do. His way not their way, that is why when He says to remember something don’t let any man tell you it is ok to forget it. Jesus said if you love me you will show it by keeping My Commandments.

Revelation 12:7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,. What most people don’t know is that we are all involved in a war here on this Earth. Not a war that we can see with our eyes, but a spiritual war of Good versus Evil.
Ephesians 6:12
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

All through history all God wanted was a people who would do as He asked them to do, not by force but by love. That is why Jesus said in John 15:10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

God took a people group a special people and to them He committed all the oracles of heaven, He gave them His will, His Laws, and His Commandments, His love, that if they would keep them and obey them He would send special blessing upon them. But if you read through the Bible you will find that they were stiff neck and very unfaithful, un loving and un caring. Instead of serving a God who loved them they committed adultery and went after the God of the nations and people around them.

Deuteronomy: 32:16 They provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods; With abominations they provoked Him to anger. 17 They sacrificed to demons, not to God, To gods they did not know, To new gods, new arrivals That your fathers did not fear.
God gave to the children of Israel everything, in return all He asked of them was to keep His law and do them, follow His Commandments and live a peaceful and fruitful life. But they refused, look at what Jesus told them in the book of John 8:40 But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.

God the Father sent His Only Son into the world to show His special people that they all can keep His Law and Commandments, but what did they do, they wanted to kill Him.

So God finally gave up on them and send His Gospel to the Genitals.
But it was not long after before evil men came into the Church and corrupted its teaching and enforcing the Commandments of Men in place of Gods Commandments. 1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us
Jesus Himself said to beware Matthew: 7: 15: Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

And worse yet these false religious teachers substituting a false day of worship in place of Gods Holy day of Worship the Sabbath. Daniel 7:25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

Persecutions got so bad in the medieval times that million and millions of Gods true Christians were put to death, why because they believe in God’s word as the only truth there is. And God did not leave then by themselves He sent help to His people, He open up the shores of a new world. God sent His blessings on this new nation with religious freedom people could believe accordance to their faith. That new world was the United States of America, the land of the brave & free, no other nation has ever been like this one.

And God richly bless the USA because it was founded on Gods Holy principle, and in its constitution said that all men were created equal and free.

But in the last 50 years’ things have changed, we are no longer one nation under God, we are no longer a Christian Nation. Look at what the Bible says

Revelation: 13:11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.

This two horn beat represents the USA and its Civil and Religious liberty
14: And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

The United States is the only country that fits this lamb like beast. Lamb like; it started off as a Christian nation but something happens to it that makes it change to a dragon nation.

Like the Children of Israel this nation has turned away from God away from His truth and in its place they have excepted the false teaching of man.

Why should God not be angry, He did all He could do but like the children of Israel we have rejected His Law and cast down His Commandments and in its place we have excepted the Commandments and teaching of Men. We put our faith in our great Religious Leaders, what they say and tell us we take it as Gods word.

They take the Bible Gods Holy word and twist the scriptures to fit their beliefs and there teaching no one stands up to correct them. But God has always had a people, in every age there were men and women who kept the light of Gods Holy Word burning. They are not the large magnificent Churches we see; no they are the ones who are small and insignificant. What makes them different is that they study Gods word for themselves and go by what the Bible says is truth and not man.
Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

Revelation 14: 6: Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— 7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

The everlasting Gospel to preach to this old world, the same Gospel God gave to the Children of Israel, who rejected it. The sample Gospel God gave to His Holy apostles who gave it to the Churches. And when the Churches casted it down to the ground there was only a remnant of true Christians who picked it up and kept it next to their heart. The word remnant means few very few, they will not be found in the great mega churches of our days, they will be the small groups of people who will be studying God word and doing the things God asked them to do.

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The end is closer than you think!As we get closer to the second coming of Jesus, Satan will be on the war pad persecuting Gods true believers again. Why because they will be the ones preaching God Everlasting Gospel, Just like Enoch, like Noah, like Abraham, like Jacob, like the prophets, like David the King, like Jesus the Christ when He was upon the earth, like the Holy Disciples, like the holy men of God through the dark ages, like the remnant will be doing right before Jesus returns.

God has always had a people who was true to Him in every age, a people who kept His laws and Commandments no matter what others around them were saying. Why because they loved God more than life itself Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

My Brother or Sister I hope and pray that you too will be one of the remnant few who Jesus will find doing as He said to do.

I am Elder Tim McNab for Restoring Gods Truth Ministries, God bless and be with you in your walk with Him.

Why God Said Remember!

Share

1 Kings: 18: 21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.

Jesus CallingThe one thing as a minister I can tell you is when God says something He means exactly what He says No fooling around, and if He is telling us to Remember something you better never forget it.

My last sermon was on the Ten Commandments and we seemed to have a problem in our world with Gods 4th commandment, the one dealing with Worship and what day to worship on. God says on the 7th day but man says no on the 1st day, my question to you is who do you believe and who do you obey.

As I study Gods word I find one problem with mankind stands out more than any other and that is the problem with obedience. All through the Bible you will find God pleading with Man to simply do what He says to do, no turning aside to the left or right, just simple obedience to His word, how hard can that be.

It all started with the Creation of our first parents, let’s go to the book of Genesis and do some research. Genesis: 2: 15: Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

There it is God created this beautiful world then He took the dust of the earth and created Man. But the very last thing He did was to create a help mate for man called Woman.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.23 And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

She was not to rule over the Man nor was she to be stepped on by man. Woman was taking out of the side of man, she was to stand with him by his side to be a companion, friend, helper, but the most importance roll she was to do was to be a life giver a Mother. In her the seed of man would reproduce itself, it is one of Gods many mysteries of life.

Genesis: 2: 8: The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

God is love He created this beautiful world and all the things that are in it for Mans enjoyment. He gave it all to Adam and said enjoy this beautiful world that I created just for you. God also planted a paradise garden and said to both Adam and Eve, “Remember” the one condition
Genesis 2: 15: Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Man was giving his first test to see if he would or would not obey his creator God. It was nothing big or something hard, but simple very simple “don’t eat from this one tree”. The fruit on it was just like all the others. The difference was that God said not to eat the fruit on this one tree.

Eve was warned not to go off far from her husband, but being busy she found herself closed to the forbidding tree
Genesis 3: 2: And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Do you see a problem, God said if you eat of this one tree you will surely die but Satan the snake said you will not surely die? It was a sad day for all mankind because both Adam and Eve ate the fruit fully knowing what God said would happen to them.

Romans 6:16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Does God mean what He says, you better believe it and right to the tee, God does not change midway or change to the left or right. When God said something He means it just like He said it.

Deuteronomy 5:32: Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

OK so I hope you can see in this that when God said something he does not take it back or change it

Matthew 5: 17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

Luke 21:33: Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

Jesus it telling us as plane as He can that He did not come to change any of the laws or commandments of His Father God

However, there were some sacrifice laws of animal that were a shadow of what He Jesus came to do. The animal sacrifice all pointed to Him Jesus dyeing on the cross taking our Sins away. These Laws were all nailed to the Cross with Jesus that is why we don’t have to sacrifice animal anymore because type and met antitype. The Blood of Christ paid it all on the cross, the Creator God dying for His creation.
———————————-

OK, now let’s get into what God said to Remember and 95% of Religious Leaders saying No it is OK to forget what God said to Remember.

tablets1According to the Bible Gods gave man Ten Commandments, and Gods gave them to His special holy people Israel. But God had a lot of other people who were not of the line of Abraham that also worshiped Him and more then likely lived by the same Ten Commandments Law.

Let’s take a look at the one Commandment that 95% of the Religious Leaders have a problem with.

Exodus: 20: 8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

Believe it or not, but this one Commandment says a lot about God and who He is, let’s look at some of it.
1. First thing God wants us to respect His wishes so He tells us to remember to keep this day holy and worship Him. Just think if everyone did just that there would not be so many different religions in our world today because everyone would know who the Lord God was and they would all come together to worship Him on the same day.
2. God tells us that we all need one day to rest and what better day could there be then the day God said to keep holy and worship Him
3. This Commandment also said Who created this world and where man came from. Here again if everyone remembered and kept this day holy there would never had been an atheist or agnostic. Why because right here we are told that in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them. No need to drought how man got here and if we came from monkeys.
4. Most importance is the last part Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. The Sabbath was just a day like any other until God blessed it making it a holy day a day to rest and remembering who God was and what He did. A day to worship God the Father a day of being with family and friends a day of getting away from all the things that keep us busy and occupy our time.
5. God rested on the 7th day after He finished the creation of this world, should we not follow His example. Did you Know that when Jesus finished the plan of mankind salvation on the 6 day Good Friday, He too rested the 7th day Sabbath before rising on the 1st day of the week Sunday? All through the life of Jesus He kept the Commandments of His Father.

Now let’s open Gods Holy Word the Bible and read some scriptures in the New Testament about the Character of God

Rev 11 19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant[h] was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

The Ten Commandment that were written on stone was kept in ark, there was an earthly temple made by man and there was a heavenly temple in heaven made by God. The Earthly temple was only a copy of the one seen in heaven by Moses

We know from history that Israel failed to keep God Commandments, they pushed them aside and in their place was man made commandments. We see this all through the life of Jesus the Pharisee accusing Jesus of braking Gods Sabbath Commandment, but Jesus was not braking His Father Commandments He was braking the man made one that the Religious Leaders switch in its place

Rev 12; 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Satan, the Devil, the Snake, the Serpent whatever you want to call him was cast out of heaven and what did he do, he went right to work on the Church putting pagan beliefs in place of truth. The Church of Roam that once was Gods church became indoctrinated with pagan beliefs and lies

Rev 16 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

False Prophets who were demons processed now at the leadership of the Church of Roam. Look at the book of Daniel he was giving a vision of what would happen in the future almost 600 years before Church

Daniel 7:25: He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

Right here Daniel is saying that this false Church power would persecute Gods true holy believers. The Roaming Church would kill them and speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High.

Now very important that you don’t miss this, what else will the Church of Roam try to do (And shall intend to change times and law) now do you see where Sunday came in, Sunday was a pagan day of worship but the Church of Roam cast down the Law of God His Sabbath that is why God said to Remember it.

Look at another scripture in the book of Revelation

Rev 14; 6. Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—7. saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

When you read this scripture it is almost word for word of Exodus 20: 8 – 10 (Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.)

The Sabbath with the Ten Commandments that God the Son (Jesus) gave to Moses 3,000 years ago is very much still to be obeyed

12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

How did this all happen; well look at what was happing to the Church while most of Jesus disciples were still alive evil men were coming into the Church as leaders and teaching false doctoring.

Jesus all aloneJude 1: 4 4 For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

Satan could not defeat the true Church by precaution so he joined the church and brought in his false teaching and pagan beliefs. And all who were true to the faith preach by Jesus disciples had to separate from the Church of Roam as the Bible said: Revelation 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

Once again the Church of Roam with its daughters (other so called Christian denomination) will rise again and precaution will once again start in our day.

But we are not to despair we are to keep preaching the truth no matter what others say or how hard it gets. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

Look at the Gospel of John, evil with in the Church will become so corrupt that they will persecute God true Christian and not only persecute but Kill them believing they are doing Gods will John 16:2: They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service.

When Jesus returns His army of Angels will fight for all His True Saints who by faith have waited for Him and kept the faith once delivered to the holy disciples. Look at what is said in Rev 19: 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Believe it or not but in Rev 9 it tells us the true condition of how the world will be, why because they did not remember to do what God told them to do. They pushed aside the true teaching of the Bible and excepted in its place the false teaching of Satan: Revelation 9: 20 But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. 21 And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Once again look at Rev 10: 5 in the very heart of this scripture it is almost word for word from the 4th Commandments (who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it)

Rev 10: 5 The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer,

Rev 10: 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.

In the book of Genesis, the earth became so corrupt and Evil that God (Jesus) had to destroyed it with a flood, only 8 people survived. Now listen; Jesus told us that as the days of Noah were so shall it be as we near the time of the End or last days. Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.    Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

Jeremiah 9: 13 And the LORD said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts

Look at what is happening all around you the signs are all being fulfilled we are in that time when Jesus will soon return. Not only are the people of the world corrupt but the Churches and Religious Leaders are also corrupt. It is not about the truth it is about making money. The bigger the congregation the more Tithe they will give and the more Religious Leaders will have in their pockets.

Rev 15 15 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.

lesson02-12My friend Rev 15: 15 is about the seven last plagues, all who refused to obey God and Keep His Commandments, whose names are not written in the lamb book of life will have part in the last plagues. Pray and ask God to lead you by His Holy Spirit in to truth, open your mind and heart and study His word. Forget everything you were taught and let the Holy Spirit guide you through the Bible into truth. As you read don’t refuse the truth, just study and read the way the Bible tells you to do: Isaiah: 28: 10: For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little.

God is looking for a people who will do His will, keep His Law, obey His Commandments. He is looking for a people who will do as He asked them to do. His way not their way, that is why when He says to Remember something don’t let any man tell you it is ok to forget it. Jesus said if you love me you will show it by keeping My Commandments.

Isaiah: 29: 13 Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

The Bible from Genesis to Revelation is all one book to understand Gods truth you need to study not only the New Testament but also the Old Testament.
I pray that you will open you heart and mind to God and learn obeisance. His will is the best enjoyment a Christian can have.

I am Elder Tim McNab for Restoring Gods Truth Ministries may the Holy Spirit be with you and lead you into all Truth is my prayer.

Gods Ten Commandments

Share

What do you believe about the Ten Commandments, are they still to be obeyed in our world today; or did they get replaced by Jesus or someone else with some other commandments?

tablets1Sometime things that we believe to be true are not always true and finding what is true is very difficult because people put their own tradition and belief in way of truth.

As a minister I want to make sure what I am saying or telling someone is what the Bible defines to be truth, and not what I think or anyone else. Come with me and let’s open the word of God the Bible and let’s find out about the Ten Commandments and see if we should or should not still be following them in our world today 2000 years after Jesus death on the cross.

The Ten Commandments are listed in the Bible in two places, first in the book of Exodus: 20: 2-17 and also in the book of Deuteronomy: 5: 6-21.
You can also find in the new testament outlines of the Ten Commandments in the book of, Mark: 10: 19, Matthew: 5: 27, Matthew: 15: 4, Matthew: 19; 18&19, Romans: 13: 9. You will also find Jesus keeping the Ten Commandments through His entire life, even while dying on the Cross He made sure His mother was to be cared for, commandment number 5

Jesus was teaching the people to keep His Fathers Ten Commandments, if He planned on changing them or changing any one of them surely somewhere in the New Testament there would be a scripture lettering His people know, God does not keep things a secret especially when He told you to remember something. Amos: 3: 7: Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

OK So first let’s look at each one of the Ten Commandments and see what they are asking or telling us and if they still apply to Gods Holy people in our time.

***Commandments: # 1: Exodus: 20: 2-3: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

The very first of the Ten Commandments starts with a brief reminder of God power followed by the command that we are not to have other Gods before or in the place of the Lord God. Should we as Gods holy people today have other Gods in our life. I would say No, look at Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

The Lord Gods is still the same God of Creation of Adam, the same God of Abraham, the same God of Israel, the Father God that Jesus came to show mankind Gods love to His creation, the same God of the Gospel today. From everlasting to everlasting, You are God, so I would say commandment number 1 is still to be obeyed by Gods Holy people in our world today.

***Commandments: # 2: Exodus: 20: 4-6: You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Throughout history man has always worship something or some God, many times a statue or carved image was made out of stone or wood and worship as a god.

Even in today’s world there are some Christians religions who still practice the worship of carved image. But Gods 2nd Commandments strictly forbids the worship of anything like an idol.

Deuteronomy 4:35: To you it was shown, that you might know that the Lord Himself is God; there is none other besides Him.

1 Kings 8:60: that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.

Mark 12:32: So the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He.

The Bible is very clear on this matter, the Lord is God and He alone is God and there are none others like Him. In our world today people make a lot of different things their god or Idol. Some worship their money, others worship their cars or things that they have, people have other people who the worship as god for whatever reason. Anything that gets in the way between you and the Lord God is an idol, and guess what even Church can become an idol, when people love their Church more then they love the Lord God. So the 2nd commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 3: Exodus: 20: 7-You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
We are not to make little of the name of the Lord God. That can be anything from idle speaking to full blasphemy of any of God names or His character; we are not to use Profanity or dragging God’s name through the mud of human emotion and joking.
When I was baptized I made a commitment a promise to God to serve Him and to show the world I want to be Christ like.
Acts 11:26: And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. Why because they were Christ like inside and out.

To be a Christian is to show the world Gods character living inside of you by doing the things He told us to do. When we don’t do them or wend we act more like the world then Christ we use His holy name in vain. So the 3rd commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 4: Exodus: 20: 8-11: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Is the Sabbath important? What does the Bible say?

Jesus CallingEzekiel 20:12: Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am the Lord who sanctifies them.

The Sabbath is a sign between Gods holy people and Himself

Will we be keeping Sabbath in heaven and in the new earth? Read what Isaiah says Isaiah: 66: 22” For as the new heavens and the new earth Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the LORD, “So shall your descendants and your name remain. 23And it shall come to pass That from one New Moon to another,

And from one Sabbath to another, All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the LORD. 24: And they shall go forth and look Upon the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm does not die, And their fire is not quenched. They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.”
According to the Bible, Gods Holy People will be keeping the Sabbath in the Earth made new, that is what Isaiah is saying
Did any of the Disciples keep the Sabbath after Jesus went to heaven: Looking at the book of Acts: 18: 4: And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.

The Disciples Paul (Saul) did not come into the Christian Church for almost 3 years after Jesus went back to His Father, then he spent another 3 years in studying. So Paul was still keeping the Sabbath for many many years and was in the Church or synagogue on Sabbath teaching about Jesus.
Also if you read in the book of Genesis chapter 1 & 2 you will find and account of God creation from day one to day seven, and on day seven God does something He did not do on any of the other days.

Look at Genesis 2: 2: And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3: Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
God blessed it and He made it Holy

Exodus 31:13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.

So the Sabbath was a sign between Gods and His Holy people, are we not His holy people today the Church that Jesus started. Also did you notice that Jesus die on a Friday, sleep in the grave during the Sabbath or Rested and woke up on Sunday. God rested after He finished His creation of our World on the Sabbath, Jesus rested on the Sabbath after He finished the plan of salvation and got the Victory over Satan and Sin.

Matthew: 5: 17&18: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

Jesus tells us plainly that He did not come to do away with any of Gods Commandments Law but He came to for fill what was spoken by the Prophets about Him. Jesus kept His Fathers Commandments, should we not be doing what Jesus did. He was our example because no man comes unto the Father but through Jesus. So the 4th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

Now there were some Laws that were nailed to the Cross when Jesus died, they were called the Mosaic law. They were a list of Ceremonical Laws dealing with the sacrificing of animal and their blood. These thing were a shadow of things to come. When Jesus died on the Cross all these Mosaic Laws were done away with, Why? Because they were fulfilled in the death of Jesus the ultimate sacrifice in man behalf. Under that the Mosaic law and Gods Ten Commandments Law were two completely different laws. The Mosaic law was written by man on animal skin or something, Gods Ten Commandments were written on Stone by God Himself. The Mosaic law was placed on the outside of the Ark but Gods Ten Commandments Law was placed inside the Ark.

So where did Sunday come from: That is another subject that we will take up later.

***Commandments: # 5: Exodus: 20: 12: Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
This is a commandment with a promise, if you obey Gods commandment and take care and respect your Mother & Father God will also take care of you and add years to your life.

But it goes on further than just that, we should honor and respect all who are older than we are and those who are in authority. Just think how wonderful our world would be if all people had respect and love for each other.

Let’s look at Matthew: 15: 1-9 Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, 2: “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” 3: He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.5: But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God”—6: then he need not honor his father or mother. Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. 7: Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 8: These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 9: And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ How sad for God to say to man that our worship of Him is in vain because we would rather keep the traditions of our Church over His Commandments

They were so up on keeping their traditions that they could not see they were making void Gods Commandments with their traditions. Much like the Christians Church today. We want to place copies of the Ten Commandments on the Court House in our City’s and on our front lawn.

But where does God want to put them? Hebrews 10:16: “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

God wants His Laws and Commandments to be in one place, and that is living inside of you so that you can be an example reflecting the life and love of Jesus to others around you every day. So the 5th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 6: Exodus: 20: 13: “You shall not murder.

When Man was created he was created in the image and likeness of his creator. He was not created to die; death came in only after man sinned buy not obeying his creator command.
Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

God gave mankind a warning that his life was a gift from his creator on a condition of perfect obedience to His creator laws. By keeping them he would live forever but by braking them he would die.
Genesis 3: Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

So the question came down to who do you believe, do you believe your Creator or some snake in the grass you just met.

Look at John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Not only was Satan a murderer but the father of all lies.

Murder take the life of an innocent person and causes grief and hardship on his wife, children or on his parent and family. God never design mankind to die and never design man to fight and kill one another; all that was because of his Sin in not obeying his creator Commandments.
So the 6th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 7: Exodus: 20: 14: “You shall not commit adultery.

When God created man he was not created to be alone in a perfect world all by himself. God had something more wonderful in mind, the perfection of His master piece was in the creation of a Woman; in her and from her was to be life. God created her body specifically for the need of man and to bring life into the world by his seed. But man was not to be a whoremonger, he was to have one wife and they together were to be one in flesh.
Matthew 19:6: So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

The intimacy between one man and one woman is so beautiful that words cannot explain. When you truly love someone it brings in perfect trust to the relationship, that is what God wants from us, perfect trust that He will do what He says, perfect trust in His love for His creation.

In our world today perfect trust is extremely hard to find and that is why there are so many devoices. People get married for looks not love, for money not poverty for a good time not sickness. But perfect trust will lay down one’s life for the other, now maybe you can understand why Jesus came and gave His life on the cross.

The Church is Gods bride and when He comes back to our world it will be to marry all who gave their life by faith and perfect trust in Him as their Creator and Savior. So the 7th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 8: Exodus: 20: 15: “You shall not steal.
Stealing is not just the taking money, in fact there are many ways in our world todays that a person can steal. Stealing is the taking anything of value that belongs to someone else. You can steal time if you are working for someone and don’t give them all the time they are paying you for. You can steal information off of the internet these days; and of course there is money.

If you know your neighbor has lost something and you found it but don’t give it back to him, it is a form of stealing, because you know who it belongs too. Did you know you can also steal from God, when you read His Commandments the 4th one says it is a Sabbath day of rest and worship a special time set aside every week to be with your God and savior. You can steal Gods time by not worshiping Him on the day He set aside for worshiping

Gods commandment

Gods commandment

John: 14: 23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. So the 8th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 9: Exodus: 20: 16: “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

A lie is anything that is not 100% percent truth. So if it is 99.9% percent true and .01% lie it just as well be a 100% a lie. With God only 100% truth is good enough everything else is a lie. Where did lying start look at the book of John and see what Jesus had to say about it while talking to the Pharisees

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Lying hurts people, and can ruin a person’s character for life. Satan lied to the angles about God the Son all because he was jealous and wanted to be like God. But it is impossible for a created being to be God or to be like God.
So the 9th Commandment is still in force for Gods people today.

***Commandments: # 10: Exodus: 20: 17: “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

God has giving to each person everything that is needed to follow his Lord God. But when we are not satisfied with what God has provided but want more and will do anything to get it; that is coveting

Luke 3:14: Likewise the soldiers asked him, saying, “And what shall we do?” So he said to them, “Do not intimidate anyone or accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.”
Be careful of coveting don’t try and live like your next door neighbor, don’t try and keep up with toys like everyone else at the office. Don’t worry about having to be dressed in the best that money can by just so you can fit in with others. Love the things that God has giving and put in your way and thank God every day for life.

Hebrews 13:5: Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Have you ever had what is called New Car fever, you want that new Car so bad that nothing and no one can make you see that it will be bad for you. Maybe because it will be too expensive or because it is not as good as the dealer clams it is, or it is something you just don’t need right now. There are a lot of reasons but you want it so bad you don’t care what anyone says. That is only one form of coveting

1 Timothy: 6: Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certainc we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Being rich is not as good as you think is it, there are more rich people committing suicide than any other group, why is that. You would think having all that money they would be the happiest people in the World. Money can buy you friends but Money can’t buy you Happiness.

Jesus is coming back and very soon, all the signs of His coming are being fulfilled, just read the book of Revelation and the daily Newspaper. This old world does not have much longer; where will you be? Where will Jesus true Church be, look at Revelation: 14: 12: Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

Rev: 19: 10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation: 12: 17 : And the dragon was wroth with the woman (Church), and went to make war with the remnant (Few) of her seed, which keep the commandments of God (Gods Ten Commandments Law), and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (the Spirit of Prophecy: See Revelation 19:10)

Revelation: 13: 8: And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Go to the Book of Daniel Chapter 7:25-28
Read about a religious power that will try and Change Time and Law, Who’s Time and Who’s Law
Gods time and Law? it would not be prophetically significant for the little horn (religious) power to attempt to change human time and laws, for this is commonly expected in a struggle for world dominion. The conflict described here is between earth and heaven. The little horn intends to change Gods time and laws, most clearly seen in His Ten Commandments.

The 7th Day Sabbath

The 7th Day Sabbath

One obvious illustration of Gods time is His Sabbath, His Law the Ten Commandments: Any attempt by an earthly power to change Gods Sabbath is an attempt to change Gods Law, the heart of which is the Sabbath itself.

Gods true Church will be the ones doing what He ask of them to do, If you love me keep my commandments John: 14: 15: Don’t be fooled by the great Religious Leaders of our world saying oh don’t worry about those old Ten Commandments they have been done away with. Remember Jesus keep them all Ten of them. He did not come to do away with the Law but to fulfill the Law.

Remember this: The Ten Commandments were written by God Himself on two tablets of stone and place inside the Ark, they were not written by man.

Jeremiah 9: 13 And the LORD said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts. Evil men with evil intention who’s only goal is money in their pockets. They refused to preach the truth to their congregation because it is not the popular thing to do, Jesus called them a wolf in sheep’s clothing. But soon and very soon the day of God judgment will fall on all who refuse to do as God says, it will fall on all these false teachers and leaders, what will they do then.

*** What do you think, what one of the Ten Commandments did Satan brake, if you said all of them you are right. *** Jesus kept all ten of them and Satan broke all ten of them, that’s the different.

The wisest man who ever lived said these words below

Ecclesiastes 12:13: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14: For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, amen.

The Second Coming of Christ

Share

Isa:8:20:
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

jesus-christ11. What do you think will happen when Christ returns?
2. What do you believe he will do when he returns?
3. How do you believe he will come?
4. What will be the condition of the Earth just before his coming?
5. What are your plans?

The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the Church, the grand climax of the gospel. The Saviour’s coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide. When He returns, the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die. The almost complete fulfillment of most lines of prophecy, together with the present condition of the world, indicates that Christ’s coming is imminent. The time of that event has not been revealed, and we are therefore exhorted to be ready at all times.

Today we will take stroll through the Bible, and let’s see what the word of God, has to say about his soon coming.

One day He will come, though even to the saints His coming will be an overwhelming surprise, for all they that slumber and sleep in their long wait.

Matt 5: 5
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

At midnight, in the Earth’s darkest hour, God will manifest His power to deliver His people.

Scripture describes the events:
“A loud voice” comes out of the “temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, {It is done}”. The voice shakes the Earth, causing such “a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth”

Rev 16: 17-18
17: And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18: And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

The mountains shake, rocks are scattered everywhere, the whole earth heaves like the waves of the oceans. Its surface breaks up “and the cities of the nations fall… Then every island fled away, and mountains are no longer found”

***{{Can you imagine what that will be like}} ***

There are many good Christians men and women who have been lead astray from the Bible truth about Jesus second coming. They have been lead astray by faults teachings saying that Christians don’t need to worry; that they will be raptured from the earth before Jesus second coming. Isa:8:20: tells us that we need to check all teachings by what is in the Bible. Remember God does not change and He has giving us ampule evident in the Bible to check all teaching by. : if they speak not according to this words in the Bible it is because there is no light in them.

Rev 16: 19-20
19: And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20: And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

“The Bible talks about the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up. What a time to be living in, to witness the events as for told thousands of years before they happen. The people of God will not be taking by surprise, they will know what to expect, but only as they study the word of God for themselves and not believe the many faults religious leader

Rev 6: 14
14: And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Despite the chaos descending upon the physical world, God’s people will take courage as they see “the sign of the son of man”. What a joy there will be to look up and see Jesus.

Matt 24: 30
30: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

As He descends on the clouds of heaven, every eye sees the Prince of life. He comes, this time, not as a man of sorrows, but as victor and conqueror to claim His own.

In place of the crown of thorns, He wears a crown of glory, and “on His robe and on His thigh is a name written.

Listen to what the book of Revelation has to say about Jesus soon return:

Rev: 19: 12-16
12: His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13: And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14: And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15: And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16: And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

At His coming great despair grips those who have refused to acknowledge Jesus as Saviour and Lord, and have rejected the claim of His Law’s on their lives. Nothing makes the rejecters of His grace so aware of their guilt as that voice that had pleaded so patiently.

—Turn, from your evil ways! For why should you Die?—

Eze. 33: 11
Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Through out history men and woman have looked forward to that day of Jesus return. The pages of history are stained with the blood of martyrs who has giving their life for the truth they have believed.

There is a Book called Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, if you have never read it I suggest you get it. In the pages of the book are the names of many Men and Women who died the most horrible Torture and Death at the hands of those who called themselves, men of God and keepers of the Faith. Never in the life of Jesus do we see force being used, because for true love to be true it has to be willing to let go.

Rev 6: 15-17
15: And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

But the joy of those who have long looked for Him overshadows the despair of the wicked. The coming of the Redeemer brings to its glorious climax the history of Gods people; it is the moment of their deliverance. With thrilling adoration, they cry out: “Behold this is out God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation”.

Isa 25: 9
9: And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

As Jesus draws near, He calls His sleeping saints from the graves and commissions His angels to “gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other”. Love ones who has pasted on in death will now be reunited in the Lord.

Matt 24: 31
31: And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Around the world the righteous dead hear His voice and rise from their graves. As when Jesus called forth Lazarus from his tomb his voice will now he heard by all who loved him and know him. My sheep will know my Voice and will come when I call.

Then the living righteous are changed “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye”

1 Cor. 15: 52
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Glorified and given immorality, together with the resurrected saints they are caught up to meet their Lord in the air to remain with Him forever.

1 Thess 4: 16-17
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

****** What happen when Jesus comes and his feet first touches the Earth?******
If Jesus Feet touches the Earth this is a faults Christ. “READ IT AGAIN” !!!

17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Don’t be deceived by someone saying he is the Christ. The Bible said many will come claming to be the Messiah, don’t be fooled. Know what the word of God said about Jesus returning to this Earth to gather together his Saints.

What a glories day when we look up and see Jesus coming in the clouds.
When we can say, , Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

You can run, but you can't hide!There is a great time of trouble in our world today people living in fear not knowing what is going to happen next.

And as always the only time they remember about God is when there is trouble.

For the last 50 years this country has been turning its back on God.
It started first with teaching evolution in out schools, instead of teaching that God Created.

When they said that it was against the law to pray in out school and teach about God.
Fifty years ago the worse problems in our school were chewing gum and talking out of turn
.
Now!!!   It is Guns, knifes and bombs. Out children no longer go to school to learn, but to fight.

In ours school you can learn about any religion in the world except Christianity.
You can learn about what is false, but you can’t learn about what is True.

Matthew 24:
1: And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2: And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3: And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

“Please note the first thing Jesus does here”!
4: And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Why would Jesus tell us this?
5: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
How sad to think many of good people will be lost, Why, All because they did not study for themselves to know the true from the False. They took the easy way believing what they were told rather they to look it up. They were busy with the cares of the world and did not know the time of their visitation.

Then Jesus tells us something about the condition the world will be in.
6: And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8: All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Its not getting better listen as we go on.
9: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10: And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

**Many of out Religious leader today talk of the secret rapture. The problem is that No one told Jesus about it.
**In fact Jesus is telling us to prepare, because we are going to go through the Great time of Trouble.
**We have said that the Bible is Gods History book for man, Why, because if we know how God has worked in the passed, then we can see how he will Lead in the Future.
**God in his working with man has never removed man from the path of trouble, But has always lead him through it.
**Story of Daniel in the Lion den, Story of the Fiery Furnace.

(( If this rapture is a secret why does Jesus shout so loud that he wake the very dead ))

Read Again !!! 1 Thess 4: 16-17

16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

“What does Isa; 8: 20 say again To the Law and Testimony.”

Lets look as Jesus goes on!!!

Matthew: 24: 
11: And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12: And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13: But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

What does the word Iniquity mean. {wickedness, evil, sin, vice, injustice, & crime}
Is that not our world to the Tee …

21: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22: And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23: Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24: For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

“Look what Jesus Said”
25: Behold, I have told you before. We have no excuse for not knowing…

26: Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
Why should we; not go and look at what Matt 24:24 says: Because Satan delusions will be so that if it were possible to deceive the very elect of God. That is why we need to study the Bible ourselves and not go by what someone else says or even what your Pastor says.

“How will we know when it will really be Jesus coming”
27: For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28: For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29: Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31: And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

I need some help now. If you open your door and see leave falling off the trees what does it tell you. If you open your door and you feel cold what does it tell you. If you open your door and see new leaves on the trees and beautiful new flowers what does it tell you.

“Look at what Jesus is telling us”

32: Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34: Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35: Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37: But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39: And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

This will be a fearful time to live in. But do not FEAR.

John 14:
1: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2: In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3: And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Psalms 91:
7: A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8: Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9: Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10: There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11: For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12: They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13: Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14: Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15: He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16: With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

In the past we have seen so much hatred and violent. Not just in the world but here in our own back yard.

Men being lead by satin himself, with no feelings for Woman or Children!

Believe me satin is at work here deeper than you think. He is using this occasion to gather together his forces for the last great battle against Gods people.

The countries are falling into place, lining them self up for that great day of God almighty

As Christians there is one and only one whom we can count on for out protection and safety in times of trouble

Isaiah 54: 17
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

There is nothing that man can do, this world will be in a chaos and fear of the people will be overwhelming. The only safe place will be in the hands of God

The end is closer than you think!Matthew: 24:
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Today you too can also find grace in the hands of a living God, will you make that choice today and let Jesus into your life, will you follow the truth of God word found only in the Bible. I am praying for you that today you will do just that.

God Bless

If the Cancer don’t Kill you the Treatment will.

Share

Have you even heard someone say if the Cancer doesn’t kill you the treatment will. Well all I can say is that I am living proof of it. If you been here before on Restoring Gods Truth and read some of my sermons you will find that I am a cancer survivor. The year 2002 was not a very good year for me; sometime in early March 2002 my brother went fishing and somehow got in a bad storm and fell out of his boat and died. Second in mid July my Boss at work who I been with for almost 23 years died of heart failure, and worse of all in November of the same year my wife and I found out that I had cancer.

The Wrong WayMy cancer is called Nasopharyngeal or NPC for short, Nasopharyngeal cancer is a cancer that starts in the nasopharynx, the upper part of the throat behind the nose and near the base of skull. I was told by my doctors that it was a rare cancer to get here in the US, but I find that not to be true as I have many friends on CSN who have had the same cancer as I do but not as many times as I had. I did all the requited treatments to get rid of the cancer but in 2004 when doing a PET scans it showed that my NPC was back for a rematch. My doctors all told me that because I was in good health my body would be able to handle a second treatment of radiation with chemo. It would be hard on me but the doctors all felt if I had any chance of surviving this would be the way to go.

After a lot radiation & chemo treatments that almost killed me by the grace of God I made it until May of 2006 when my NPC came back again a 3rd time. This time all my doctors could do was to try more chemo but even with that I would only be giving a little less than 12 months at best to live. I did not want any more treatment; if it was time for me to go to sleep (Die) then I was ready. But through all my trails and treatments for cancer I became closer to my God and the closer you get to God the more you see what Sin really is.

Let us Pray

——————————————————————-

Like it or not we are all dying, in fact from the point of conception we start the dyeing process long before we are born into this world. There is a disease in our world that will kill every person, that disease is called Sin.

It was never Gods intent that man should die, He God created the first man to live forever and from the man He also created man a helpmate called Woman because she was taking from the man. 1 Corinthians 11:8&9 8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. In the Garden of Eden where God created the first man from the dust of the ground and breathe into him the breath of life, and man became a living soul. But man was not created to die he was created to live forever. Genesis: 2: 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
But something went wrong with Gods plan, how could this be God knows everything; God knows the end from the very beginning. God never intended it to be this way but for love to be true love it has to be willing to let go and have freedom of choice.

God made every provision for mankind’s happiness, He gave man anything and everything he wanted or needed to be happy. But to test man and see if man also loved his creator, God told them not to eat of just one tree.

There was nothing different about this one tree, in fact there were many of the same type of fruit trees in the garden. Man did not know what hunger was because of so much food that God provided in the garden for them every day; so why would man ever want to even come close to this one tree. Genesis: 2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Why would anyone want to give up paradise for this world of sickness, hunger, war and sin. That is exactly what happened, open your Bible to Genesis: 3
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

So far so good but now comes the Cancer, hear what Satan says
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

God said you will surely die and Satan says you will not surely die, who do you believe?

How clever of the old serpent, to mix into Gods truth just a small little lie. This is why we need to be careful of believing anything we hear, just because some great leader is preaching something that sounds good that does not make it truth. We need to study Gods word for ourselves just to make sure it is the real truth and not mixed with a little white lie.

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Now Satan tells the truth, yes God knows that the day you eat of this fruit your eyes will be open but because of disobedience not love and disobedience is Sin and what does the Bible say about the soul that sins. Ezekiel 18: 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die.

God did not want for man to ever know what sickness, sufferance, and death was, all this would come as a part of man disobeying God and eating of this one tree. God knew what was best for mankind and He did everything possible to show His love to both Adam & Eve. But it would be on one condition; they must love and trust Him.

Now after Eve had eating of the tree she goes running to Adam

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Adam could not see how God could fix this problem and Adam did not want Eve to die. Here Adam sinned twice, he sinned first by eating of the tree and then he sinned twice by loving Eve more than loving his creator God. Matthew: 10: 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Matthew 22: 37 Jesus said unto him, “‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Had Adam just waited and put things into Gods hand how different our world would have been. But once the Cancer of Sin came into our world it will not stop until it has killed everything.

No one knows what God would have done if just Eve had sinned and not Adam. I heard a preacher say that Jesus would have died just for Eve if she was the only one who sinned. Maybe and maybe not but Eve was not the problem it was Adam, because to Adam was giving dominion of this earth. So when Adam sinned he handed over dominion of this world to Satan.

I DID IT MY WAY Roman: 6: 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Matthew: 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Do you now see how the Cancer of Sin came into our world and how it is killing this world and killing everything God has created.

Is there any hope for man; is there any hope for our children, the answer is Yes there is hope and that hope for the cure of this Sin problem is found only in Jesus.

Unlike my treatment for NPC cancer where I had to undergo radiation and chemo treatment in hopes that it would kill the cancer and get rid of it forever. Jesus had to step into our place so that the Sin cancer would kill Him and not the ones who by faith believed in Him.

Romans: 5:8 But God commendeth His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

But how and why, why would God want to die in my place. Why would the creator of all things give up His life for someone like me?

The answer to this question is found in John: 3:
16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Hard to believe that the creator God loved man so much that rather than destroying man when he sinned He would step in and die in his place. But why did anyone have to die at all.

You see there is a Law that governs all things, we have laws but they are manmade. God also has Laws that govern all things and like Him they are eternal, there is a law of gravity that says what goes up must come down and a law that keeps the earth and moon from colliding together. There is also a law that says if you sin you must die.

Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Man had sinned and the law said that the soul that did the sinning had to die. This is why God warned Adam & Eve saying that if they ate of the fruit of this one tree they would die. Because the law said if they sinned the soul that did the sinning would die.

He Died for YOU

He Died for YOU

But God did something totally unexpected before the entire universe, He God would take mans sin upon Himself and die in man place so that man could be taking back into communion with his creator. But it too would need to come by faith and too all who would believe in Gods Son Jesus Christ.

1Corinthians 1:
18: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God
21: For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
27: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Wow what love God must have for His creation; Satan represents God’s law of love as a law of selfishness. He declares that it is impossible for us to obey its precepts. The fall of our first parents, with all the woe that has resulted, he charges upon the God the Creator, leading men to look upon God as the author of sin, and suffering, and death.

But Jesus was to unveil this deception. As one of us He was to give an example of obedience to all mankind. For this He took upon Himself our nature, and passed through our experiences. Heb. 2:17 “In all things it behooved Him to be made like unto His brethren.

If we had to bear anything which Jesus did not endure, then upon this point Satan would represent the power of God as insufficient for us. Therefore Jesus was Hebrew 4:15 “in all points tempted like as we are.”

He endured every trial to which we are subject. And He exercised in His own behalf no power that is not freely offered to us. As man, He met temptation, and overcame in the strength that was given Him from God. He says, Ps. 40:8 “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law is within My heart.”
As He went about doing good, and healing all who were afflicted by Satan, He made plain to men the character of God’s law and the nature of His service. His life testifies that it is possible for us also to obey the law of God.

By His humanity, Christ touched humanity; by His divinity, He lays hold upon the throne of God. As the Son of man, He gave us an example of obedience; as the Son of God, He gives us power to obey. It was Christ who from the burning bush on Mount Horeb spoke to Moses saying, “I AM THAT I AM. . . . Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Ex. 3:14. I AM hath sent me unto you.”

This was the pledge of Israel’s deliverance. So when He came “in the likeness of men,” He declared Himself the I AM. The Child of Bethlehem, the meek and lowly Saviour, is God “manifest in the flesh.” 1 Tim. 3:16. And to us He says: “I AM the Good Shepherd.” “I AM the living Bread.” “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.” John 10:11; 6:51; 14:6; Matt. 28:18. I AM the assurance of every promise. I AM; be not afraid. “God with us” is the surety of our deliverance from sin, the assurance of our power to obey the law of heaven.

In stooping to take upon Himself humanity, Christ revealed a character the opposite of the character of Satan. But He stepped still lower in the path of humiliation. Phil. 2:8″Being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”.
Christ took the form of a servant, and offered sacrifice, Himself the priest, Himself the victim. Isa. 53:5. “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him.”

Christ was treated as we deserve, that we might be treated as He deserves. He was condemned for our sins, in which He had no share, that we might be justified by His righteousness, in which we had no share.

He suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which was His. “With His stripes we are healed.” By His life and His death, Christ has achieved even more than recovery from the ruin wrought through sin.

It was Satan’s purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man; but in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen. In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound Himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. John 3:16 “God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son.”.

He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice; He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only-begotten Son to become one of the human family, forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word.

Isa. 9:6 “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder.” God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the “Son of man” who shares the throne of the universe. It is the “Son of man” whose name shall be called,. “Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

The I AM is the Daysman between God and humanity, laying His hand upon both. He who is Heb. 7:26 “holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,” Heb. 2:11is not ashamed to call us brethren.;. In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together. Christ glorified is our brother. Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite Love.

Of His people God says, Zech. 9:16, 17. “They shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon His land. For how great is His goodness, and how great is His beauty!”
The exaltation of the redeemed will be an eternal testimony to God’s mercy. “In the ages to come Eph. 2:7; 3:10, 11 ,” He will “show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.” “To the intent that . . . unto the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places might be made known . . . the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Through Christ’s redeeming work the government of God stands justified. The Omnipotent One is made known as the God of love. Satan’s charges are refuted, and his character unveiled.

Rebellion can never again arise. Sin can never again enter the universe. Through eternal ages all are secure from apostasy. By love’s self-sacrifice, the inhabitants of earth and heaven are bound to their Creator in bonds of indissoluble union.

The work of redemption will be complete. In the place where sin abounded, God’s grace much more abounds. The earth itself, the very field that Satan claims as his, is to be not only ransomed but exalted.

Our little world, under the curse of sin the one dark blot in His glorious creation, will be honored above all other worlds in the universe of God. Here, where the Son of God tabernacle in humanity; where the King of glory lived and suffered and died,–here, when He shall make all things new, the tabernacle of God shall be with men, “and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.” And through endless ages as the redeemed walk in the light of the Lord, they will praise Him for His unspeakable Gift of Love.

Revelation 21:
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

In this world both the Cancer and the Treatment will kill you I am living proof of that, my body is wasting away little by little every day, pain & suffering, but not from the cancer, from the treatment that was to save me.

But with Jesus He took my cancer of sin and placed it upon Himself and the only side effect will be eternal life with Him in a new world that will never see sickness, suffering, cancer, or death; All that will die with this old earth.

A Praying FatherI want to be a part of the new World that God who cannot lie has promises to all who by faith believe in Him. I hope and pray that I will see you there as well

Ephesians 2: 8: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

As the days of Noah were so shall the end be

Share

Mt:24: 36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

You can run, but you can't hide!Have you ever wondered about this story that Jesus told His disciples, what is the meaning about the end days being like the days of Noah. With all the Christian Churches in our world today how would this be possible. Could it be that as we get closer to the end time there will be two difference classes of Christians in our world.

Jesus also told a parable about ten virgins, 5 of them were wise and 5 of them were foolish. If a woman in the Bible represents a Church then a virgin Woman would represent a Christian Church. OK so notices what happens to both of them. The bridegroom Jesus tarries or delays His coming. So all 10 of the Churches become lazy as they waited, but then the sound of the coming bridegroom arouses them and they got up and trim their lamps, but 5 of them run out of oil (the Holy Spirit) or they became spiritually blinded by the good things in this world while they were waiting, they became spiritually blinded.

These verses tell us that when the Son of Man appears again, people will be eating and drinking, marrying and giving up in marriage just as they did right up to the day when Noah went into the ark. Everything was normal, in other words, for those who were unaware of God’s intentions they way no alarm. But for Noah and his family, it very was clear that the time was coming when God would bring all of creation to an end, the same will be in the last days.

Looking at the story of Noah contained in Genesis 6, the condition of the world was vexatious to the Lord. He looked down from His throne in heaven to find that corruption had filled the world. The perfect creation of His hands had become everything He did not intend it to be, looking at it again, is there any difference in our World today.
According to Genesis 6:5, God saw that the wickedness of man was great upon the earth. We hate to admit it but does wickedness run rampant today throughout the earth and mostly right here in good old America the land of the free.
Let’s take a trip through the Bible and see what else we can find about this time right before the 2nd coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Let us Pray!

___________________________________________________________________

Let’s go back to the scripture for today and read it again: Mt:24: 36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only

What was it that God the Son was telling to His disciples here in the book of Matthew Chapter 24: God is a God of Love, a God of mercy, He is longsuffering, Caring, and wants only the best for His children. We need to under just what Gods love is all about. The Bible describe the love of God in this way; jealous for His people Ezek:38:19: For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

We sometimes try to understand God in a human way, but that is a problem. Man is not capable of understanding true divine love that is why Jesus said in John: 15:13: Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.

This is as close as we can get to understanding the love that God has for His children. He is jealous for them because He wants what is best for them, but He can’t force it on them

2Cor:11:2: For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Now understand the kind of jealousy Paul was talking about, a Godly jealousy, a God that truly cares for His creation to the point that He the creator God would rather die then to let His creation die. That is a love that man can’t comprehend or understand all we can do is too accept it by Faith

Take a look now in the book of Genesis: 6: and start with verse 8

8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Stop for just a moment: I heard some Christians talking and saying that we no longer need to keep Gods 10 commandments law that was Old Testament stuff and we are now New Testament Christians. Well if that is true then Noah must have been a New Testament Christian because the word of God is telling us that he found grace in the eyes of God.

9: These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

The Earth at the time of Noah was just as corrupt as it is today. No wonder Jesus was telling His disciples that as the days of Noah were filled with hate, violence and sexually immorality, so will it be right before the second coming of Jesus. It is a scary thing to hear as it seems like they are talking about what the USA has become.

11: The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12: And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Look all around you my friend, the morals of this world has changed. There is corruption all around, from the Governments of the world to the Churches that are to be a light to lead men to God. All in all God found only 8 people in all of the know World that Worshiped Him in truth and believed what He God was saying.

imagesCA07BFOU13: And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

How sad God must have been, the beautiful new world He just created corrupted itself through sin Genesse:6:5: And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

The sad part of this is that our World has once again corrupted itself and every imagination of the thoughts of our heart is only evil continually.

God did not destroy the World all at once, God in His love and mercy still pleaded with man to repent of his wicked ways. So God gave mankind 120 more years before He would destroy the Earth. Why to give everyone living time to hear the Gospels message of salvation. Noah preached for a 120 years, but the world looked at him as a foolish old man who built a Boat on dry land miles away from any water.

The World was ending and the only hope was to get into the ark to be saved. Through radio, Internet, and TV the message of the Gospel of Jesus is going to all the World. It is the same message that Noah was preaching, look at it in the book of

Revelation: 14:
7: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Where do we find this same commandment in the Old Testament, look in the book of Exodus

Exodus: 20:
8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9: Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Right there in the Old Testament is the 10 commandments that God Himself wrote with His own finger, and one of them God say to Remember. Why because it points to God as our Creator.

Today people are trying to find the answer to the question, where did we come from how did we get here. It is all there in the book of Genesis how God created and formed the World and God said let there be light and the evening and morning was the first day.

The Bible is very clear on who God is, He is the created God and there are no others like Him. All through the Bible it tells us about God and His love for Mankind, He wanted Man to be happy and live forever; all Man had to do was to obey God and live.

What Mother or Father is there that will not correct there children when they do something wrong or bad. Why do they do that, is it because they hate there children or because they love there children. Can we expect God to be any difference then we are. Our parents had rules when we were growing up, were those rules because they hated us or because they loved us. Our parents loved us so they gave us rules to keep us safe so we would not get into trouble so that we could grow up someday and be parents ourselves. God is no difference, He has rules to keep us safe because He loves us and by keeping them we show others who we love.

Our world became infected with a disease that disease is called Sin and it is killing Gods people. When Man sinned he rejected his creator God but that did not stop God from loving us. God in His love sent His Son to show man the depth of God’s love and that all who would believe in Him would be saved.

In our world today there are two types of people and only two.

There is one group who has a form of religion but it is only on the outside, they are also the ones who want the fun and happiness of this world, live it up with fun dance and song, drink all you want and live as if there is no tomorrow and in fact that might just be it because you can’t have the world and Jesus, it is one or the other.

Then there is another group, they are completely different, they live by the word of God. As the Bible said they love not their lives until the death, they keep the commandments of God and have the testimonies of Jesus Christ. They do not live for the world they live keeping the laws of their God and savior. Why because He asked them to. Jesus said if you love me keep my commandments.

Jesus told His people that he is going to prepare a place for them and that He will be coming back again to take them home that they will live with His in heaven. The same two classes of people that were in the world in the days of Noah are still in the world today.

Jesus told His disciples to watch and pray because no man knew the day or the hour when He Jesus would return.

Read Matthew 24:

36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only
37: But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39: And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

All who study Gods word; and being lead by Gods holy spirit can look all around and see there are signs everywhere that the last days are upon us, and that this old world will soon very soon all pass away. People today are just like they were back in Noah days and they will continue until it is too late and the door of probation is once again closed.

I do all I can to live my life everyday by what I read in God’s word. By keeping His laws and His commandments, I don’t keep them to be saved I keep them because I am saved through the blood of my lord and savior Jesus Christ.

Luke:17:
28: Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29: But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

The angle messengers were sent from God above to see all the corruption in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. As they got close to the city Lot greeted them and welcomed them into his home, why because he knew there they would be safe.

We might live among ungodly people like Lot did, but that should never be a wall between us and God. We should be faithfully doing our duty everyday for the saving of lost souls.

The angles told Lot to get out and take his family because the city was going to be destroyed. Faithful Lot went to his daughters and son-in-laws but all they did was to laugh at the foolish old man. Finally the angles could wait no longer and had to take Lot and his wife and two daughters by the hand and lead them out of the city

People today is the day of salvation, today is the day that you will let God into your soul or lock Him out forever. We are in what the Bible calls the last days, many of the sings that God has giving have already come too passed.

Don’t be like the people in Sodom or like the son-in-laws of Lot, believe God and take Him at His word. This old world is not ripe for destruction; sin has reached its zenith. God had to destroy this world once by a flood but this time it will be by fire.

I ask of you today choose ye this day who you will serve

1 Kings 18:21
And Elijah came unto all the people and said, “How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people answered him not a word

Baal represents the false Churches and there teachings, don’t get hooked in any Church that said it is OK to forget what God said to Remember. You will know them

John 13:17
Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them

People study the word of God daily, put it into your heart and mind, and when you see God telling you something or making something know to you do as the Bible tells you to do. Don’t get locked out or let the door of probation close on you, make your choice to follow Jesus and do it today

John 17:26
I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.’

There are many Churches out in the world today, they can’t all be right and they can’t all be wrong. You must check them by their Doctrines and there is only one way to do that

Isaiah 8:20: To the Law and too the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

The Bible tells you how to find the true Church, Look at Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Christ and Family

Christ and Family

Revelation: 12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ

The dragon Satan will not be fighting with the people of the world, he does not care about them. The ones he will be fighting with will be the true Church the ones who do as God has commanded them to do

Would we Crucify Jesus again!

Share

The Bible is a book all about love and the Earth is a story about creatures made in the very image of their creator who rejected His love.

He Died for YOU

He Died for YOU

But God the Father loved them still so much that He sent His Son to show them the Father and that all who by faith in Him would have ever lasting life. Jesus is our example of what true love is all about, how could we have crucified someone so full of love. How can men be so full of hate to kill the only Son of the creator Father God.

Acts:20:
28: Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29: For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30: Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

I want to share something very important with you; something that I have been preaching in almost all of my sermons, and that is about our Churches and our Religious Leaders today. Are we as Christians truly following the word of God or that of man?

Everyone wants to defend what they believe as being the truth, but the question is what is truth? The Bible must define to us what truth is in order for us to know if we are keeping it or not. So what does the Bible say is truth John:17:17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. So according to the Bible truth is Gods word.

2 Timothy:3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

So now we know what truth is and we know that all scripture is giving by inspiration of God, so that we might check and see if what we are being told by our Church is or is not truth.

STOP; and think about this; if Jesus came back to our world today would we try and crucify Him again. Come with me on a journey through the Old and New Testament and let’s find out the reason our Religious Leader 2000 years ago rejected His teaching and put Him to death. Then answer the question if Jesus came again today would He find the Church, His Bride as described in the book of Revelation ready for him to take home or to Crucify Him again.

Let’s look first in the Gospel of John: and start in chapter 15
9: As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10: If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11: These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12: This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

This is a very important subject so I will be using a lot of scripture from both the New & Old Testament, why because to understand the New we need to understand the Old and to understand the Old we need the New. Rv:11:3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Jesus said that His life on this Earth was to show us the Father love Jn:5:20: For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

What was Jesus model here on Earth, to be like His Father in Heaven. Many people even today have a misconception of God the Father; they believe Him to be some tyrant overbearing God who if you don’t serve Him He will burn you up in hell for ever and ever.

But that is not the Father God that Jesus came to show us, Jesus is showing us a Father God who loves and loves us so much that He sent His Son His only Son to show us the Father love. Our first parent sinned and separated us from the love of God by Sin, but it is through the work that Jesus did that give man forgiveness and reconciliation to bring us back to the Father.

John: 14
6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8: Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9: Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10: Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11: Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

Jesus was soon to leave and He wanted to make sure those that He left behind would not feel helpless or lost. He knew there mind was on becoming great and number one in this life, there were not fully prepared to endue the trial coming before them. He wanted them to understand that when He left another would come to open there minds to everything He taught them and that they would have faith and know that God the Father and Jesus were one in the same.

23: Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24: He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

Hi disciples were to teach others as Jesus taught them, and that was to worship God the Father. Jesus showed the Father love in His life on this earth, He walk and did the things His Father gave Him to do. The Leaders of the Church who were to be the ones showing the common people about God, the very God who gave them His laws and commandments were so far off of true worship they did not recognize the Fathers Son when He came to them.

imagesCA07BFOUThey rejected Him and His teaching. Why because it was different from what they were teaching. How could this be, how could they get so far off from the truth about God, they were the Religious Leaders they were the very ones people looked to for help and guidance.

Stop and ask yourself this question, why are there so many different Christian Churches in our world today. There was only one back in Jesus time the one He started with 12 disciples so why so many now. Funny but we all like to play games and the most command game is follow the leader. Sad but true if someone does not like something in a church he will just leave and start a church of his own. If he is a good speaker and tells the people what they want to hear before long you will have another Christian Denomination.

If Jesus came back today what Church would He go too, I am sure it will be the one following His Commandants all Ten of them. Why I say that because when He was here the first time that is the one He went too..

What is bad about all of this is when the Religious Leaders are following the wrong way everyone else who are following them are also going the wrong way. If Jesus came back today what Church would He be going too, I am sure it will be the one following His Comandents

Jesus came to show His disciples the truth and to follow the commandments of God the Father the same ones He followed while He was here on the Earth. Men love to intrepid the Bible and tell others what is means. But the Bible does not need anyone to intrepid it 2Tm:2:15: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. If we will just take time and study the word of God, His word, the Bible will intrepid itself, that is the gift of the Holy Spirit, to lead us into all truth.

31: But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.

Today there are many Christians and Religious Leaders telling us that we no longer need to keep all those old Commandments of God, or it is OK to keep them a different way. But was that what Jesus were teaching, or was that the problem with the Religious Leaders then, they were good men “sometimes”. But little by little they compromised the true teaching of God and put into place the teaching of men. Look at what the Bible is telling you in the book of revelation in the end time there will be a small group of true follower who will be keeping the commandments of God not the commandments of the Church.

Look at Matthew: 7: 21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

As you reading this, can you understand it; Jesus is telling this to men and women who called themselves Christians who profess to be keeping His truth

23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

They are the Religious Leaders and there followers; so called Christians that Jesus is talking to, the question is why, why is Jesus saying I never knew you. Could it be for the same reason the Religious Leaders in His time wanted to kill Him.

We need to go back into history and look at some prophecy about the times we live in, turn with me to the Book of Daniel

God gave a King by the name of Nebuchadnezzar a dream, his dreams was about all the major kingdoms that would come up and rule this Earth. Those kingdoms were Babylon, Medes and Persians, Greek, and the very last Roam.

Daniel: 2:
36: This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37: Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
38: And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
39: And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
40: And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
41: And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42: And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43: And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
44: And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

OK now let’s look at these kingdoms

Gold = Babylon: The head of gold represented Babylon, which was the ruling world power from 612-539 B.C.

Silver = Medo-Persia: The chest of silver represented Medo-Persia, the ruling world empire from 539-331 B.C.

Bronze = Greece: The thighs of bronze represented Greece, the dominant world ruler from 331-168 B.C.

Iron = Rome: The legs of iron represented Rome, which enjoyed world supremacy from 168 B.C.-A.D. 476. Jesus was born when Rome was in power

Iron and Clay = the Divided Empire: The feet that were partly iron and partly clay represented a divided empire that would not cleave together. No single power has ruled the world since A.D. 476, and it will remain divided until Christ’s return. But note that the legs of Iron representing Roam extend all the way into the very toes of the image, right down to the time we are living in.

Stone = Christ’s Eternal Kingdom, His Word, and His Law

We are living in the very toes of this image where soon Jesus is to return. Question is where will you be, on what side will you be standing. On the side of your Church or on the side of God Truth; the choice my friend is your

Now let’s go to the Old Testament and see some of prophecy about the Church that we find will come out of the Iron and Clay of the legs and feet

Dan:7:25: 23: Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

What makes this fourth beat or kingdom so different from all the rest, after the fall of the Roman kingdom When the Roman Empire began to crumble in A.D. 476, it was not overtaken by another world power. Instead, barbarian tribes conquered the Roman Empire and divided it just as Daniel prophesied. Ten of these tribes evolved into modern Europe. They were the Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Franks, Vandals, Alemannians, Sueves, Anglo-Saxons, Heruls, Lombards, and Burgundians. Seven of them still exist today in Europe. For example, the Anglo-Saxons became the English, the Franks became the French, the Alemannians became the Germans, and the Lombards became the Italians.

24: And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Note; Roam never fell to another world power it was divided and change from a world empire to a religious empire. It is the same today in our time we are the feet of this great image that Daniel seen, and for many years the only church that ruled the world was the church of Roam, the legs of that great image.

25: And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they

Is there on Earth today a Religious power that claims it has power to make and change Gods Law and His Commandments? It is sad to say but it is true that the Church of Roam claims to have that power on Earth to do just that. And they changed who’s time and who’s Law. Look at the 4th commandments, Gods day of worship and His time to come and abide with His people the Sabbath to Sunday.

How log would this corrupt Religious power rule, look at the book of Revelations

Reveluation: 11:

2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

During these times of persecution where would the true Church be Rv:12:6: And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Gods true Church would go into hiding because of the persecution of the corrupt Roam church. Read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs if you have any drought of how corrupt a church can become when lead under the power of an evil devil and not a loving God.

God has always had a people who kept the truth of His word even to death. Why because they follow the true teaching of Jesus and refused to follow the corrupt teaching of the church.

Mk:13:13: And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Mt:24:9: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Because they stood up against the corrupt teaching of the Church and paid the price with there very own life. They knew that they would be killed for telling others the truth about God the Father and His Son Jesus. But they would not compromise the truth even if it meant dyeing; they love Gods more then life itself.

John:15:
24: If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25: But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

Jesus told us that if they would do these things to Him Gods Son, they would do it to us as well who followed His true teaching.

We are told that they will hate us, why because we are different because we keep the Commandments of God and have the Testimony of Jesus Christ

Rv:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Rv:19:10: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

We are to worship God and God only; we are not to bow down and give any man or image the reverence that belongs to God alone.

Look at how the Bible describes the last kingdom, Jesus kingdom

The stone that was cut without human hands represents God’s kingdom. It will not be a conglomeration of earthly kingdoms, but a total replacement Revelation 21:1. The Scriptures declare that when Jesus Christ returns to earth, He will completely consume all the kingdoms of earth and establish an everlasting kingdom Daniel 2:44. What exciting news! Jesus Christ is coming again! All history is moving toward this climactic conclusion of when the Son of God shall return in majesty to bring in the kingdom of everlasting righteousness.

The Angle came to Daniel to show him what will happened in the latter days (End Time)

Dan 10: 14: Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

Dan:7: 45: Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Look at what Paul said to the Church of Thessalonians: 4:

13: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Here Paul is preaching about the follower of Jesus who had died and sleeping in there graves. They wanted to know what is going too happened to them. They knew that when someone died they did not go to heaven or hell, that they were right there in the grave. So Paul told them not to worry that when Jesus came back all who are in the grave would rise first and then we who are still alive will go up to meet Jesus in the air

15: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Jesus when He is coming back will call with a shout and the trump of God and all who died in the hope and faith of Jesus will come alive never to die again. How could this be; because they died in Faith what Jesus told His followers to do, that if He goes He would come back and take them with Him. Remember the story of Lazarus in the book of John (John:11:43) Jesus had to call for him by name so that all dead who was in the grave would not come back to life.

lesson07-1617: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18: Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Jesus is the Stone that was cut out of the rock with out hands and is coming back for all who by faith in Him believed and did the work He told them to do not what the Church tell you to do.

People need to study the word of God the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and let the Bible intrepid itself and go by Gods word not mans.

So what do you think, now some 2000 years after Jesus died if He was to come back as a man like He did to the Jews would they crucify Him again? There are so many different religions in our world today, how do you tell which is the true Church, Remember in the book of revelations it said that they will be a remnant a very small group compared to the Great mega Churches of the world.

Rv:12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Who is satan mad with and will do all he can to destroy and kill them, that is right the ones who will be keeping the commandments of God. Remember keeping the commandments will not save you, we are not saved by keeping the commandments or the Law, we are saved by the grace of God. But we keep the commandments because Jesus told us by keeping them it will show to the world who we love; His true Church.

Jesus Himself kept His Father Commandments; the ones He gave Moses, for His commandments are the very character of God Himself

If you are in drought as to what the Truth is just do this: WWJD What Would Jesus Do

Jesus kept His Fathers Commandments all Ten of them

Don’t Bite the Hand that Feeds you!

Share

I have a dog that can’t understand love; it is a good little dog and likes to lick me when we are playing. She also likes for me to rub her back, her head, and more then any rub behind her ears. My daughter had the dog for about a year but could not take care of her because she was always working, so like a good daughter she dropped the dog off on her parents, don’t you just love children.

The dog is a pretty little dog all most still a puppy and wants to play all the time; Well I am an old man and my play days are over. But we manage so like I said she is a good little dog, but she has one very bad problem, when it comes time to feed her.

Don't Bite the HandIf I stick my hand too close to her mouth while eating she will growl and even bits me. All I can say is where is the love you had for me just a little while ago. I am the one who give you a place to sleep, and place to live, I keep you warm in the winter time, and cool in the summer time, I take you to the vet when you get sick, and feed you when you get hungry

No matter what I do or what I try I can never get her to learn that I am the Hand that feeds you. I sometimes wonder if that is not the same thing we do to God everyday, He is the one that give us everything we have and everything we need, and all we do it too bite the hand of the one who gives us our very life. Forgive us dear Lord.Hosea:4: 6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

Let’s take a walk through the Bible and see what God has to say about this.

Let us Pray!

My Brother Son:

My brother die about 10 years ago and I want to do anything I can to help his children. One of his sons was in jail at the time of his death; we wanted him to be there at the funeral but they would not let him out of jail.

I wanted to help him as much as I could so I took on the task to visit him and try to keep in communicating with him. Well he got out about a year later and went back to New Orleans, but it was not long before he got back into trouble and they put him back in Prison again this time for 7 years.

Jn:10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I went to visit him when I could, just had a lot on my table at the time, but I felt I owed it to my brother to help his son. When it came time for him to be released none of his family wanted him because all he was is trouble.

Well I sad that is not right, he is my brother son, he got into trouble when he was younger but he is now a changed man. When I would visit him in prison he would tell me all his planes and that was to keep out of trouble and make a new life for himself. Well I decided to have him stay with me so we would be able to help him a lot better. I heard all the bad things about him but pushed all that in the back of my head, I was going to help and that was all it was to it. I gave him his own room and I paid for gas in his car, it was like when my children was at home, Dad did and paid for everything.

Ps:81:12: So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.

Well my wife was in Tampa at the time so the first day that he was in my house he was there all day by himself. I always keep my room door locked because I don’t want anyone to be in there when I am not home. So after I got home from work, I notice that the number on my safe was wrong. I always leave it on 90 but when I check it, it was on 50, how did that get there, and then I thought. Someone had to have opened my safe but who my door was locked. Then I said oh no that boy opened my door and was rooting around in my room to see what I have.

I did not say anything that night but decided to leave my safe on a different number the next day, and sure enough when I got home it was changed. Well my wife was coming back from Tamps that same night and she will be at home everyday now, so I said nothing to him again. I wanted him to know that I trust him I love him I will do everything I can do to help him.

Smokes and BearMt:15:19: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

He told me he found a job and everyday he would leave to go to work, but he was always getting off early. I figured something not right with that; no one gets to take off when they want when they just start a new job. Well I did all I could do to treat him like a son and let him know we trust and loved him. That week we had a camp meeting and so my wife and I went, I asked him to come with us but he say no someone was coming to pick him up to go to work, well ok I said.

We drove to the camp meeting about the time we got there a guy I know called me on my cell phone to let me know someone was driving my work truck. I said what, he said that boy who is staying with you took off in your work truck and he is calling me because he knows that no one drives that truck except me.

I could not believe it; he broke in my room to get the keys and then stole my truck. I drove home right away and when I got there sure enough my work truck was gone. About that time he shows up with my truck telling me that he had an emergency and needed to use my truck.

But this time I said no, no more and told him to pack his bag and get out of my house. He had a friend pick him who was a known drug head, what he was doing was stealing from me to pay for drugs. After he left I found a lot of my tools were missing my wife rings were missing; even my next door neighbor was missing tools from his shop.

Why! was all I could say, I did all I could for him, I took him in when no one else wanted him, I feed him and gave him a warm place to live. I loved him as my own son and would have done anything for him, but to him I was only someone else to abuse. That is why none of his family wanted him, they knew him better then I did. But I was praying that love would change him but he turned and walked away from my love because he wanted what was in the world.

Ps:14:1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Sometime I wonder are we not the same way with God? God has giving us everything we have everything we need and we spit it back at Him saying thanks but no thanks.

Open your Bible with me to the book of Hosea and let’s read about God people Israel and see how God has viewed them.

Hosea:2:5: For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.

God picked a man by the name of Abraham and from him he would make a nation of people who would love Him God for all He would do for them, they were to be called Gods holy people. Did it turn out that way; no, all that God did for them they were anything expect God people.

Hosea: 2:
8: For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
9: Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.
10: And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand.

Gods love and mercy is right there for all who by faith accept what He did in our behalf, forgiveness is free by the blood of Jesus but it was not cheep.

Hosea:4:
6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

God wants a people who will love Him; He has provided everything we need and gives His blessing to us everyday. But look at what God is saying about His people

mad-satan-Picture-11: Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
12: My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their

We are Gods people, yet God is saying that we have turned away from following Him we have committed whoedom by following false teaching. The Bible and the Bible alone must be the standard of all truth in our life, nothing should be more importance to us but to follow what God has told us to do.

Isa:8:20: To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

God has blessed mankind by giving us His commandments that if a man will do them he will be blessed. Look at the Gospel of John and what is it saying.

John:7:
16: Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
17: If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18: He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
19: Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?

Jesus plainly told the Religious Leaders in His day that He came not to do His will but the will of His Father. He also told them that God gave them His Law and His Commandments that If any man will do God’s will, he shall know of the doctrine that Jesus was teaching, whether it be of God, or of man.

Think about this, Jesus was speaking to the Religious Leaders the men who were put in charged of doing what God told them to do. They had a copy of everything God gave to Moses to pass down to them, but were they doing it.

This was the Religious Leaders who were supposed to be teaching the people Gods word, but they themselves were not keeping it. They had made other laws to help them keep God laws, but by the time Jesus came they were keeping there Laws and not the Laws or Commandments God gave to them.

Now I ask you is it possible that we today are doing the same thing.

Jesus came almost 2000 years ago; he left behind 12 disciples who were to teach us what Jesus gave them. They with the power of Gods Holy Spirit lead many people to know the only true God who has created everything. They did not teach others to break any of God Laws or Commandments but His disciples were examples to the world of how to live by them.

Look at what the Bible is saying about the time we are living in, go to the book of Daniel

7:25: And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Daniel was not talking about his time but of future events that were to come. Look at what happened to the Church during the dark ages. The Church compromised the truth of God word for pagan belief’s durian the rule of Constantine. But true believes kept the words of God and separated them selves from the corrupt church of Roam.

Rome taught that all who did not acknowledge the pope as God’s representative on earth and the Roman Catholic Church as the only true church were damned. Salvation was confined within the teachings of the Roman Church. Every person who disagreed with the Roman Church was in line for a heresy trial and perhaps excommunication. Excommunication meant the loss of one’s soul and being condemned to death.

Look at what Daniel is saying about the future of this corrupt Religion

Daniel:7:

1. He shall speak great words against the most High: Making her own laws and saying she and she alone can forgive sin
2. He shall wear out the saints of the most High: Look at Fox’s book of Martyrs, all these Men & Women died because they would not except the teaching of this corrupt church. What gives any church the right to put someone to death for refusing to believe what they teach?
3. He will think to change times and laws:

Believe it or not but the Roman Church changed the 4th Commandment from the Seventh Sabbath day to the firth day of worship. God’s holy day a day we were to all come together and worship God and Him only; to a day to worship the Sun. Sun worship is Pagan and all who worship on that day are worshiping the Pagan Sun god.

The Bible tells us; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

God is a God of love a God of mercy and long suffering, but there will come a day when sin and sinners must have an end. We can’t continue to bite the hand that feeds us and expect to live forever.

I want you to read what Jesus was telling the people in the Book of Matthew

Matthew: 21:
33: Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
34: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35: And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36: Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37: But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38: But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39: And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40: When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41: They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42: Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
43: Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
This was not the people Jesus was talking to in this parable; Jesus was talking to the High Priest and the Religious Leaders of His day. By rejecting Jesus they were rejecting the very God who gave them His Commandments. Jesus told them that His father will take away His blessing and give it to another people, who by faith will believe in Him and what He came to do to save them.

But even then Jesus knew that His new Church would become corrupt with false teaching because of evil men. Look at Matthew:7:15: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Satan would stop at nothing to keep people from hearing the truth. Remember back in Genesis the lie he told to Eve, God said in the day you eat of this fruit you will surely die, Satan said you will not surely die. One little word changed the meaning of what was and was not truth.

John:16:2: They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

Look at the Church of the Dark Ages and what she did to Christians who would not worship her as the true Church. Read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and see how many Thousands maybe Millions of good Christian Men and Women even Children she put to death all in the name of God. The Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, she killed more people then all the World Wars put together could number.

Evil men pretending to serve God just like the Religious Leaders that put Jesus to death, all because He the Son of God would not except the traditions of the Church in place of God’s Commandments.
Even Paul knew that after his death evil men would come into the Church, look what he told the Christians there in Thessalonica

Thessalonians: 2:
7: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

The mystery of iniquity (Evil Men) are already creeping into the Church The condition of the world under the Romish power presented a fearful and striking fulfillment of the words of the prophet Hosea:4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee: . . . seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” “There is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.” Hosea 4:6, 1, 2. Such were the results of banishing the word of God.

We are not left in darkness because Jesus told us what will happen, what to expect. The dragon or Satan will persecute or go after God people just like in the Dark Ages once more Read the Book of Revelation and Daniel together.

Rv:12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

A remnant is a very small amount, at the time of the end there will be only a few doing what God told us to do. The Religious Leaders of the end-time will be telling everyone not to worry everything is OK
So here we are 2000 years after the death of our Lord Jesus, as we come upon the end-times of this world and the soon return of Jesus, we again find the Churches Corrupt teaching the documents of men rather then God truth.

Look at the fearful warning giving by Jesus Himself to the Church of the end-times

Matthew:7: 21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Many of the so called great Religious Leaders of our day will not make it into heaven, why because they studied the word of God, they knew what they should do and say, but they did it not. Why many of these Religious Leaders sell religion for money and wealth, in there sermons they tell the people all is well just love each other and all will be well.
Turn with me now to the book of Revelation: 14: 12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

The Angle was telling John there will be a people in the end times who will be doing what God said to do and not man.

Revelation:12:17: And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

lesson24-17Please remember we don’t keep Gods commandments to be saved, we keep them because we are saved. We are saved by the death Jesus gave; He paid the price of sin to save all who by faith loved Him

John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

I hope that someday I will be able to teach my little dog it is ok, I am not going to take your food away from you. I am the one who loves you and will provide for you all the days of your life.

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you

What is the Real Truth about Death, Hell and the Grave!

Share

Many years ago I lived on an Island in Central American; it was a great place for a kid to grow up and learned about the beautiful things that God created. images[1]Being a city boy and thinking I knew everything what a shock to me to find out just how little I really knew about things. I made a lot of new friends there and want to tell you about one guy called Redmood, he was a little older then I was but that did not make a different because everyone looked out for the other.

Well I got married a few years later and came up to the US to go to work and we all kind of lost track of each other. Until I got a massage from my brother who stilled lived on the Island that Redmood had died. No one knew why he died they just found him in his bed dead, the local doctor check him and there was no blood pressure or breath in his body, so he pronounce him dead.

Now the problem living on a small Island in Central American is that there is no place to keep someone when they die, so they have to bury you as soon as they can. His family made all the arrangement and had the hole dug up in the grave yard. While everyone was there in the graveyard just about ready to lower him into the grave. They heard him knocking and screaming for someone to open the coffin, so when they did he jumped out because he had no idea of what was going on

Was he really dead, did he just come back to life? Or was he misdiagnosed as being dead. About a year later he died again but this time they checked him really good before going to bury him. He never said anything about where he was when he died the first time, only that he went to sleep that night and woke up in a coffin..

Does anyone really know what happens when a person dies, well for me there is only one place to go for truth and that is Gods word in the Bible!

Let us pray!
The only way to find the real truth about what happens is to see what the Bible says about Death, Hell and the Grave; why because no man or woman had every truly died and came back to tell about it except for a man named Lazarus.

There has been a lot of near death phoneme with people dyeing on a Hospital table then coming back to life, but was that really death. For me I want to see someone who has been dead for a few days then come back to life and tell about it. But there had been none except for a man in the Bible called Lazarus; lets see what he says about it.

John:11:43: And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

The story in the Bible about Lazarus dying and coming back to life is silent on the subject of where he was. There is no book in the Bible called Lazarus near death or Lazarus after death or anything from Lazarus about where he was for those 4 days, nothing.

Lazarus said nothing about where he was because as the Bible says he was dead, God told Adam on the day that you eat of the tree you will surely die. You will not go on living some place else but that he would die, he would go back to being dust in the earth and the Breath that God gave him would return back to God who gave it.

Psalms:104:29: Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

Ecclesiastes:12:7: Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Right here in these two scriptures God is telling us what happens when we die. We go back to being dust and the breath or spirit; what makes us what we are goes back to God who gave it. Life does not go on after we die, we die because of sin and because there is a Law that tells us the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Ezek:18:4: Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Now buckle down because I want to show you something about death in the Bible from the book of Revelation. But I want us to understand one thing first; this is not what I am saying it is what the Bible is saying, here we go word for word from the Bible.

Reverlation:2:11: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

What does the Bible mean by this saying second death?

If we die and go to Heaven or Hell right at death what is the second death thing all about. If the Bible is talking about a second death, what about the first death? Let’s look and see what the Bible is saying about this

Rv:20:6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. The Bible is saying that all people who are a part of the first resurrection will live forever with God in Heaven. The first resurrection will be for all people who by faith accepted Jesus as there savoir and did the things on this Earth He asked them to do to show there love for Him in there life.

So why is there a second resurrection, who is it for. In the first resurrection all who by faith believed in Jesus was resurrected from the grave and went to heaven

Then all who did not believe or did not keep the saying or commandment of Jesus must be the ones who will take part in this second resurrection, see what the Bible says.

Rv:21:8: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

This might be a hard subject for you but please stay with me; if you are like me I don’t want to know what some preacher or some big Religious Leader is saying, I want to know what the Bible is saying about Death, Hell, and the Grave

images[8]Rv:20:14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Here is another one if when we die and if we go to Hell, how long will it be for, look at what the Bible says about what is going to happen to Hell. It will be cast into the lake of fire; the Bible calls this the second death. Rv:2:11: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

There will be an end to all Sin, an end to Hell, an end to suffering, sickness and pain. God is a merciful God look at Ezek:33:11: Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
Now some good news, if we take our stand for truth and the only truth is in Gods Word, then we will overcome and not have a part of this second death.

Rv:20:6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The Bible is telling us that there will be a first resurrection, this will be all the people who dies or went to sleep as the Bible calls it with the hope of Jesus in there lives.

First Thessalonians 4:
13: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

Paul wanted to make sure the Christians in his days knew and understood what happened when a person died. He also wanted to make them understand that if you have the hope and faith of Jesus in you when you died that there would be a day when Jesus comes back to this world and take you home with Him.

14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Paul says don’t worry about the ones who have fell asleep in the faith, when Jesus comes back they will be the ones to rise first and then we who are alive will be caught up with the ones who died or went to sleep in Jesus.

17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

There is something else it is saying here, when Jesus comes back for His people where will we meet Him. We will meet the Lord in the air; Jesus feet will not touch this earth when He comes back to bring all the righteous Saints back to life. I hear a lot of people saying that Jesus is back on this earth and he doing wonderful miracle. Well if that is so it is not the true Jesus, why because when He comes back His feet will not touch the earth, so who is it that clams to be Jesus and doing miracles to deceive the whole world.

Look at 2nd Corinthians: 11:
13: For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14: And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15: Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Do you see what the Bible is saying; Satan and his ministers will be transformed to look just like the real thing; real Christians and will deceive many. You might ask how is this going to be, it is very easy. Most Christians don’t study there Bible or believe what it says, they go by what the preacher and what there Church believes and teachers and not by what Gods word the Bible is saying.

My friend the only truth in this world is found in the Bible and the Bible only, look at John: 17: 17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. The only truth you will find in this world will be found in Gods book the Bible.

Let’s look at some other scripture in the Bible they all tell about death, none of them say anything about the soul living on after you die. This is Gods word speaking people and what does the Bible say about Gods word 2Tm:3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: All scripture is given by inspiration of God. The Bible is the guide that we use to correct everything else, if you don’t believe in the Bible you don’t believe in God word speaking to man. Remember the Bible is never wrong, the understanding or interpolation of man is unsurely what is wrong. So to understand the Bible we need to study and see what it says from cover to cover Old and New testament, for the old testament is the key to unlocking a lot of the new testament.

So what does the Bible says about death, read it word for word.

Ps: 39:13: O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

Ps: 88: 5: Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.

Ps: 104: 29: Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust

Ps: 115: 17: The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.

Ps: 143: 7: Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

Ecclesiastes: 9:5: For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
6: Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.

Ecclesiastes: 12: 7: Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Isaiah: 38: 18: For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

These are only a few references to different books in the Bible that talk about Death, Hell, the Pit and the Grave. None of them say anything about going to heaven or down to see the devil, they all talk about when you die you know nothing anymore until Jesus comes back to call you back to life. Look at the scripture the dead in Christ shall rise first: they are not going to rise if they are already in heaven.

Thessalonians 4:16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

The Bible is very clear about Death and all the prophets who had lived had told it the way God gave it to them. Even when Jesus was alive on the Earth He did not change anything; remember the Story of Lazarus, and what Jesus said of him.

John:11: 11: These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12: Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13: Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14: Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

Jesus calls Death a Sleep, why because when we die that is what we do, we sleep until He Jesus comes back to call all who have died in Faith back to live with Him forever

Luke:8:
52: And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.
53: And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
54: And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.
55: And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.
56: And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

Again remember the story of the little girl who died, when Jesus told them she was not dead but sleeping they all laugh at Him, but who was right. Friend we have to go by the Bible as a whole you can’t take one scripture and make a doctoring out of it. We must study the Bible the way the Bible tells us to study it

Isa:28:10: For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Do you remember the story that Jesus told in the book of Luke Chapter 16: about a rich man and Lazarus. He said after they both died the rich man went to hell but Lazarus went to Abraham bosom. Then Jesus goes on to give more details about the story, but was it about death and what happens at death or was Jesus trying to bring home a point. Look at it and see what it is saying

Remember when you want to know truth you must study the Bible from cover to cover, from Genesis to Revelation Isa:28:10 precept upon precept; line upon line here a little, and there a little.

Anytime the Bible does not agree with itself, it is not the Bible that is wrong it is the interpolation that is wrong. It is when we don’t fully understand something written, but if you will study the subject in prayer and precept upon precept; line upon line here a little, and there a little the Holy Spirit will lead you into all Truth.

Here in [Luke 16:] starting with verse 19 to 31 is a story that Jesus was telling
Luke: 16:31: And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
In the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, Christ shows that in this life men decide their eternal destiny. During probationary time the grace of God is offered to every soul. But if men waste their opportunities in self-pleasing, they cut themselves off from everlasting life. No after probation will be granted them. By their own choice they have fixed an impassable gulf between them and their God.

This parable draws a contrast between the rich who have not made God their dependence, and the poor who have made God their dependence. Christ shows that the time is coming when the position of the two classes will be reversed. Those who are poor in this world’s goods, yet who trust in God and are patient in suffering will one day be exalted above those who now hold the highest positions the world can give but who have not surrendered their life to God.

“There was a certain rich man,” Christ said, “which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, There were then no hospitals in which the sick might be cared for. The suffering and needy were brought to the notice of those to whom the Lord had entrusted wealth, that they might receive help and sympathy. Thus it was with the beggar and the rich man. Lazarus was in great need of help; for he was without friends, home, money, or food. Yet he was allowed to remain in this condition day after day, while the wealthy nobleman had every want supplied. The one who was abundantly able to relieve the sufferings of his fellow creature, lived to himself, as many live today.

There are today close beside us many who are hungry, naked, and homeless. A neglect to impart of our means to these needy, suffering ones places upon us a burden of guilt which we shall one day fear to meet. All covetousness is condemned as idolatry. All selfish indulgence is an offense in God’s sight.

God had made the rich man a steward of His means, and it was his duty to attend to just such cases as that of the beggar. The command had been given, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” (Deut. 6:5); and “thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Lev. 19:18).

The rich man was a Jew, and he was acquainted with the command of God. But he forgot that he was accountable for the use of his entrusted means and capabilities. The Lord’s blessings rested upon him abundantly, but he employed them selfishly, to honor himself, not his Maker. In proportion to his abundance was his obligation to use his gifts for the uplifting of humanity.

This was the Lord’s command, but the rich man had no thought of his obligation to God. He lent money, and took interest for what he loaned; but he returned no interest for what God had lent him. He had knowledge and talents, but did not improve them. Forgetful of his accountability to God, he devoted all his powers to pleasure. Everything with which he was surrounded, his round of amusements, the praise and flattery of his friends, ministered to his selfish enjoyment. So engrossed was he in the society of his friends that he lost all sense of his responsibility to co-operate with God in His ministry of mercy the same is with many of men and women today. He had opportunity to understand the word of God, and to practice its teachings; but the pleasure-loving society he chose so occupied his time that he forgot the God of eternity.

The time came when a change took place in the condition of the two men. The poor man had suffered day by day, but he had patiently and quietly endured. In the course of time he died and was buried. There was no one to mourn for him; but by his patience in suffering he had witnessed for Christ, he had endured the test of his faith, and at his death he is represented as being carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom.

Lazarus represents the suffering poor who believe in Christ. When the trumpet sounds and all that are in the graves hear Christ’s voice and come forth, they will receive their reward; for their faith in God was not a mere theory, but a reality.

“The rich man also died, and was buried; and in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.” Luke: 16: 22

In this parable Christ was meeting the people on their own ground. The doctrine of a conscious state of existence between death and the resurrection was held by many of those who were listening to Christ’s words. The Savior knew of their ideas, and He framed His parable so as to inculcate important truths through these preconceived opinions. He held up before His hearers a mirror wherein they might see themselves in their true relation to God. He used the prevailing opinion to convey the idea He wished to make prominent to all–that no man is valued for his possessions; for all he has belongs to him only as lent by the Lord. A misuse of these gifts will place him below the poorest and most afflicted man who loves God and trusts in Him.

Christ desires His hearers to understand that it is impossible for men to secure the salvation of the soul after death. “Son,” Abraham is represented as answering, Luke: 16: 25 “remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed; so that they which would pass from hence to you can not; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.” Thus Christ represented the hopelessness of looking for a second probation. This life is the only time given to man in which to prepare for eternity.

The rich man had spent his life in self-pleasing, and too late he saw that he had made no provision for eternity. He realized his folly, and thought of his brothers, who would go on as he had gone, living to please themselves. Then he made the request, “I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him [Lazarus] to my father’s house; for I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.” But “Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham; but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead.” Luke:16: 29-30
When the rich man solicited additional evidence for his brothers, he was plainly told that should this evidence be given, they would not be persuaded. His request cast a reflection on God. It was as if the rich man had said, If you had more thoroughly warned me, I should not now be here. Abraham in his answer to this request is represented as saying, Your brothers have been sufficiently warned. Light has been given them, but they would not see; truth has been presented to them, but they would not hear.

Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD

Moses and the Prophets

Luke:16:31 “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” These words were proved true in the history of the Jewish nation. Christ’s last and crowning miracle was the raising of Lazarus of Bethany, after he had been dead four days. The Jews were given this wonderful evidence of the Saviour’s divinity, but they rejected it. Lazarus rose from the dead and bore his testimony before them, but they hardened their hearts against all evidence, and even sought to take his life. (John 12:9-11.) 9: Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
10: But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
11: Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
The law and the prophets are God’s appointed agencies for the salvation of men. Christ said; Let them give heed to these evidences. If they do not listen to the voice of God in His word, the testimony of a witness raised from the dead would not be heeded.

Those who heed Moses and the prophets will require no greater light than God has given; but if men reject the light, and fail to appreciate the opportunities granted them, they would not hear if one from the dead should come to them with a message. They would not be convinced even by this evidence; for those who reject the law and the prophets so harden their hearts that they will reject all light.

So you see the parable that Jesus told here was not about what happens after you die, the Bible was already clear about that subject. The parable here was about mans duty to his brother who is in need.

One last verse look at Matthew: 27: After Jesus died on Friday evening early on Sunday morning he rose from the grave, look at what happened at the same time Jesus rose.

52: And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53: And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

The Bible says that many bodies of the saints which slept arose. Where were they sleeping in the grave and when Jesus rose he took some of the sleeping saints with him to heaven as a kind of trophy of the victory He made. Now look again at 1Thes:4:16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: or let’s say the dead saints in Christ will rise first. 17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

My dear friend the only truth is what is in the Bible and the only way to understand it is to study it for yourself from cover to cover and let the Bible explain the meaning not man or some Religious leader who might be lost himself.

So what is the true end of all this when Jesus comes back, it is very clear in the book of Revelation

Rv:20:14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Rv:21:3-8:
3: And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5: And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6: And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7: He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Jesus CallingGod will make all things new but this time there will be no more sin because Satan and all his followers will be cast into the lake of fire where they will die and never be again for ever and ever. This is the end of Sin and Sinner of Hell and the Grave this is eternal death and all who did not take part in the first resurrection will take part in the second.

My friend searcher the Bible from cover to cover and see what it says about Death, Hell and the Grave; if I am wrong please let me know but show me in Gods word that I am wrong. God bless and be with each of you as you study I pray that Gods Holy Spirit with guide you into all Truth, Truth in His word.

Restoring Gods Truth
Elder Tim McNab

John 3:16

One day when I was about 16 I was sitting in a dance hall drinking some bear. You see in Honduras when I was a young boy if you are old enough to buy it you are old enough to drink it. Well while I was sitting there drinking and day dreaming there at the door stood the most beautiful Woman my eyes have every seen. In my mind I was thinking to my self, man I wish she would walk over here and sit down with me. It was about then I seen her looking at me and boy my heart started to beat a little faster. Then she headed my way and all I could feel was the blood in my body moving faster. When I looked again she was standing right in fount of me asking me something but by then all my blood was in my feet and I could not say a word. It all happened just like I dreams it would but I became dumbfounded.

You see my cousin knew her and gave me a letter to give to her while I was there getting a transmission repaired. So she wanted to thanks me for bringing it and told me something to tell my cousin when I went back to the Island I lived on.

Well that was about it, but man I never could forget that first time I seen her. Then a year or so later, she came to visit my cousin and when I saw her aging I was not drinking this time. I told myself I need to get to know her so I hung around with my cousin in hope to get a date with her that night. Well that night we all went to the dance hall and I got to hold her close to me, then I walked my cousin and her home but before letting her go we kissed and man it was like no other kiss I every had.

LoveWell about a year later we got married; wow is all I could say. In my prayers at night I always prayer asking God to send into my live a good woman and boy He did just that. We have been married now for just over 40 years, we have our up’s and down’s but we love each other with a love that can withstand the problems of life.

God loves us with a love passed understanding, let’s search the Bible and see what it has to say about the love God has for His children

 

Let us Pray!

——————————————————————————————–

Let’s go to the Bible to find the answer about Love and exactly what is true love.

I have seen a lot of people who get married and just a few years later get devoiced. Sometime they have children who must suffer because of the parents not being able to live with each other. What went wrong, a few years before they were in love and now they hate each other; were they truly in love? The problem today is that people don’t understand the true meaning of what love is. To most people it is a love at first sight and then a few months later it is fight.

When you truly love someone you look over there faults and none of us are born with out faults. This is what makes the different in a marriage lasting 5 years and one lasting 75 years; being able to love and forgive each other as many times as it in needed.

So what about God, what about His love for mankind, the bible tells us in Genesis 1: 1 that In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Then in Genesis 1: 26 it tells us, Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Wow did you read that, we mankind male and female were created in the very image of our God and creator.

Now take a look at John: 3:16

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

What does that mean, for God so loved the world He gave His only Son, and by believing in Him you will never perish but will have everlasting life.

When God first created man He created him perfect and without a defect, without sin. So what happened what changed, did God stop loving mankind. Let’s go back to the Bible and see if we can find a reason.

Look at Genesis: 2

7: And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

8: And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

9: And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

God in His love for mankind did everything He could do so that His newly creation could enjoy the blessing of his maker. But there was one condition that God told them, one little test that God made to see if Mankind would love his creator back for all the blessing and care that He God was giving to them daily.

16: And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

This one tree was a test of Mankind obedience, will mankind love and give his creator God his full allegiance or no.

Before the entrance of evil, there was only peace and joy throughout the universe. All was in perfect harmony with the Creator’s will. Love for God was supreme, love for one another impartial. Christ the Word, the only begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father,–one in nature, in character, and in purpose,–the only being in all the universe that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God.

By Christ, the Father wrought in the creation of all heavenly beings. “By him were all things created, that are in Heaven, . . . whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers;” [COL. 1:16.] and to Christ, equally with the Father, all Heaven gave allegiance.

     The law of love being the foundation of the government of God, the happiness of all created beings depended upon their perfect accord with its great principles of righteousness.

gods-love[1]God desires only one thing from all his creatures and that is the service of love,– homage that springs from an intelligent appreciation of his character. He takes no pleasure in a forced allegiance, and to all he grants freedom of will, that they may render him voluntary service.

     But there was one that chose to pervert this freedom. Sin originated with him, who, next to Christ, had been most honored of God, and who stood highest in power and glory among the inhabitants of Heaven. Before his fall, Lucifer was first of the covering cherubs, holy and undefiled.

“Thus saith the Lord God: Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering.” “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so; thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” [EZE. 28:12-15, 17.]

     Lucifer might have remained in favor with God, beloved and honored by all the angelic host, exercising his noble powers to bless others and to glorify his Maker. But, says the prophet,

“Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness.” [EZE. 28:12-15, 17.]

Little by little, Lucifer came to indulge a desire for self-exaltation. “Thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God.” “Thou hast said: . . . I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation.” “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.” [EZE. 28:6; ISA. 14:13, 14.]

So instead of seeking to make God supreme in the affections and allegiance of his creatures, it was Lucifer’s endeavor to win their service and homage to himself. And, coveting the honor which the infinite Father had bestowed upon his Son, this prince of angels aspired the power which it was the prerogative of Christ alone to exercise.

Lucifer allowed jealousy of Christ to prevail, and he became the more determined. Pride in his own glory nourished the desire for supremacy. The high honors conferred upon Lucifer were not appreciated as the gift of God,

Lucifer now wanted nothing more then to have this new world as his own, to cause mankind to sin and to drought the love that God so freely gave to all.

Genesis: 3:

1: Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2: And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4: And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Right here is where all the problems started, it is the same problems we have in our world today, who do you believe; God or what someone else tells you. God said that if you eat of this tree you will Die, life will not go on. Then Satan steps in and said well you shall not surely die.

Do you know how many of the worlds great Religious Leaders today don’t fully understand what happens to a person when they die? Many will tell you when you die you keep living in Heaven or Hell, but that is not what Gods word says. The Bible tells us that when you die you do just that you die you stop living.

Jesus Himself called death a sleep, as I always say if God says it; stop believing in anything else and believe God.

Look at John:11:

11: These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12: Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

13: Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14: Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

Jesus the Son of God who is God called death a sleep so why would some Religious Leaders want to tell you anything different, maybe because they are still hearing Satan speak, well they are not surely dead.

Now listen as Satan tells some truth, and this is a problem. Satan does not always lie, what he does is to mix a little lie into truth.

Genesis: 3: 5: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Oh yes our eyes were open alright and we knew about Good & Evil, also about sickness and pain, about suffering and dying, in that way yes we were like God. But that is what God did not want for us to ever know, He wanted us to know only good, only Love, only happiness, only peace and security with a God of Love.

Time and time again all through the Bible we see a God of love doing all He can to bring His wayward children back to Him. Just like a good Mother or Father telling there children not to touch a hot stove because it will burn you. God is telling us that He and He alone is the God who created us and wants our love back to Him so that He can give us what is good.  

6: And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Just like today’s world people are always looking for more, looking for something better, looking to get ahead of the next door neighbors. We are never satisfies with what we have we always want more of something to make us wiser, richer and better then others.

7: And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

So they believed what a devil told them rather then what there creator God told them. God said if you eat it you will die and that is what happens we die we don’t go on living in heaven or hell, God said we Die, believe what God has said not man.

Now can you understand what John: 3:16 is all about, it is about a love story that is beyond mans imagination. About a God of love who did not want to see His beautiful creating die. But because there was a law that said in Ezek:18:20: The soul that sinneth, it shall die. God the Son stepped in and took mans place, He God came to live as a man so He God as a man can die for every one of us.

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

It is only by what God the Son did in behalf of mankind that we can live again in the last days when God the Son comes back to call all who died believing in Him to life once again

John:6:40: And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

When did Jesus say, He would raise up all who believed in Him, I will raise him up at the last day. Now just like Eve, you can believe what God said or you can believe what some pastor or priest told you. Me I am going to believe what God is saying

Now let’s look at the book of Revelation 20:5: But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

According to the Bible when you die you are dead, you are not living someplace else. The Bible is saying the dead who are not a part of the first resurrection will not live again until after a 1000 years. Where will they be, still in the grave still sleeping, but when Jesus comes back then and only then will he call the Unrighteous back to life.

Why is this, read again in the Bible, not what I think but what the Bible is saying.

Rv:20: 11: And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Here is describe a judgment sean in Heaven look at the next verse

12: And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

So here all the unrighteous are called back to life, this is called the second resurrection. Why; for judgment of what was done in the flesh; the righteous are already living they were all part of the first resurrection. Look at verse 13

13: And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

So no matter where you died or how you died when God calls, you will come back to life for the judgment. After the judgment comes the punishment, it is there that all evil will be destroyed forever.

14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Here is where Hell, Death, Evil, the Unrighteous, and Satin will all be casted into; the Bible calls it the second Death. This is a very hard time for God because He did everything He could do to save everyone of us, He gave us a choice believe what He tells us or what someone under the power of Satin tells you. The Truth is all in the Bible so no one has an excuse that they did not know.

Now all who believed in Jesus and what He did to save them, and all who did as Jesus told them to do. John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. Will live forever in Heaven, where there is no more pain, sickness, no more suffering, and no more death.

Look at Revelation:21: God is telling us a little bit of why we can expect when we get to Heaven.

7: He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Friend God the Father and God the Son and the Holy Spirit loves each and every one of us. There is nothing more that could have been done to save mankind, God the Son even gave His life and endures the shame and brutal death of being nailed on a cross by the people he came to save.

Luke:23: 34: Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

Jesus Praying for UsEven while hanging on the cross, Gods love did not stop, even there came the words of forgiveness to all of us

John: 3: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

Friend remember there is nothing that can separate you from the Love of God except for you to choose to separate yourself from Him, and even then He will be waiting for you, to forgive you and take you back as if you never left.
