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.

How to have True Faith

Hebrews 11:1: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

The Bible tells us that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. You must believe in order to have faith, I find by reading about other men and the trails they went through but they never lost the faith. Wow that also helps me to be strong and it increases my faith know God is right there with me and helping me through my trails as well.

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: The Prophet Elisha

There was a King who had a Problem
2 Kings 6:
17: And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

There was a King trying to trap the King of Israel, but every time his plan failed and he did not know why. Then he found out that every plan he made this prophet Elisha would warn the King of Israel about. So he had planned to go after Elisha instead of the King of Israel. One day this King found out that Elisha was staying in a nearby town, so he sent his army to bring Elisha to him.

When Elisha woke up the next morning he opened the window for a breath of fresh air then went to wash up some. Right about then Elisha servant went to the window but as he looked out he seen the city surrounded by this army, and he cried out oh my lord how shell we do.

But Elisha prayed that God would open his servant eyes, and when he did he saw angles all around them waiting to protect Elisha. God is always there in our times of trouble.

1. Sometime we get discourage when we don’t see things going like we think they should. If I can’t see it with my eyes I don’t believe it
2. Sometime we are discouraged when other Christian judge us by there standard of Christianity even Seventh-day Advertises Remember satin also goes to Church, all Churches.
3. Many of time we are surrounded by the enemy and satin brings sickness into our life, don’t let it get you down, let it be a tool to draw you closer to Jesus.
4. What about other problems in this world.
5. Don’t give up Faith, but pray and ask God to open your eyes so that you might see the Angle standing next to you to protect you and take care of you.

Fall on your knees and pray for God to open your eyes and you will see a host of Angle round about you to keep you from falling

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: “ Moses crossing the Red Sea”

God gave a Man a Mission to lead his People and that man was “Moses”
We meet him by the Red Sea with his Church group complaining “You have brought us here that pharaoh may kill us. Remember the Story, the army was right behind them.

Exodus 14:
21: And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

I have heard many of people try and explain what happen and how the water naturally dried up for the Children of Israel to cross over

But then there is this one little scripture that said
22: And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

It is proof that God can not only Walk on Water but he can also make it stand Vertical if he so needs

There way a young Man reading his Bible and he was at the part where Moses was crossing the Red Sea and he was so excited about how God would deliver his people.

Then a Man came up to him and asks what he was so excited about. So he told him, and he said O that, yes but you see there was a strong Earthquake that day and the water just ran out some. And so there was still about 6 inches of water left so that was no real miracle.

As the man was walking away, the young man started jumping up with even more excitement, when the Man asks what was it, he said “God just drown the entire Egyptian Army in 6 inches of Water.

If I had learned anything in Life; I have learned that if God said it, Believe it!

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: “David and Goliath”

Israel was at war: Both armies were camp on a hill with a Valley between them.
David found himself bring supplies to his Brothers, when he saw what
1 Samuel 17:
23: And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them.
24: And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.

We are no different; we run and forget about God who is fighting on our side, when we see how big the Mountain is that satin laid before us.

26: And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?

1. How big are the problems you face everyday in Life? We all look at the little things in life that make us afraid. Because out problems look so big.
2. None of us fight the same battles, because we are all different, what’s a problem to you is child play to me; and what’s a problem for me is silly to you.
3. We aloud satin to put a magnifying glass in front of our eyes to make us fear the things we have no control of.
4. We need to learn the lesson of True Faith in God
5. The Bigger the problem the bigger the Miracle, What is too big for God

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: A young man by the name of “Stephen”

who was filled with the Holy Spirit. He was brought in for what he believed

Act 7
55: But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
56: And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
57: Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, (People will do the same today)
58: And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.
59: And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
60: And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

1. People today still don’t want to hear the Truth. They will do all they can to keep from hearing and not believe the Truth. Why does it always seem easier to believe a Lie then to believe the Truth, because satin make it that way,
2. There is a time coming when again they will want to stone you for telling God Truth. So don’t be afraid when it come; Jesus told us it would happen, Be Faithful.

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: “Sharack, Meshack and Abednego.”

It is very importance when you are in a leading position to be true to what you believe. Because you may be called in to account for it someday

Daniel 3
12: There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
13: Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

The King told them look I understand about this thing you have of worshiping your God, but right now you don’t need to worry about your God you need to worry about Me. Because I am fixing to do you a lot of harm

Look at what they said to the King
17: If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18: But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
19: Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.

1. When the going gets hot will you be there for Jesus.
2. The hold world will be falling down on there knees paying honor to someone other then Jesus, Will you follow.
3. You won’t need to go all the way down just a little bending over to make it look like you are bowing, a little faking it so to say.
4. After all Jesus won’t want you to get in trouble The Bible said you can’t serve God and man

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: “Daniel and the Lion Den”

He too was in a leading position, but his pure heart made him stand out among all the other. So they trick the king

Daniel 6
18: Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.

21: Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22: My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

Gods commandment

Gods commandment

1. When the going gets tuff will you be able to stand for Jesus all by your self.
2. That’s right no Mama and Daddy there, No Brother or Sisters There, No Husband or Wife There, No boy friend or Girl friend there to help you make it.
3. Just you all alone. Most people fail because they have never put Jesus First
4. Do you have the Faith in Jesus that will secure you a place in Heaven?

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: Noah

He had the faith that can build when everyone else was in doubt

Geneses 6
7: And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

I am happy for us today that there was a Man like Noah then

Again the Earth is Filled with Violence and again it will be Destroyed

The Ark Represented Jesus, all who would go in could be Saved and it is no different to all who come to Jesus he will again save them.

1. It may not be easy to go and do what God is telling you to do.
2. But if you put the little Faith you have in God you will be like Noah. “How” Everyday he drove a nail into the Ark every time he put a board on the side his Faith Grew and Grew until he could see the plan God had in mind for him

It happen only by Faith When you are obedience to God word he will save you

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: Elijah “Choose ye this day who you will service”

Did the people forget who there God was, who brought them through the Red Sea, Who provided for them for 40 years in the wilderness, who defender them from other invading tribes.

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.

Yes they did forget, and so do we, when we put other things first in our Life before Jesus.

One of the Most Dangerous things that we as Christian can do it to put Religion before God, it happens when we believe more in the rules then the rule maker.

Jesus said I am the truth the light and the way, no man comes unto the Father but by Me. Remember that It is by Faith that we server him; and because we Love him that we keep his Commandment.

*** What Gives me Faith is Stories Like: Creator who became his Creation

“ Why? to Save Them from there sins”

John 3:16
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.
18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

*** Now my Question is; What are you doing for Jesus?

What’s your Christian Experience like lately, are you kind of Plateau, or maybe on a down ward trend.

If you leave her today and get nothing else out of this Sermon except what I am going to tell you right now you will have understood what other before you have giving for Jesus.

Today; there is a knock on your Door, you open it up and there are 6 Police Officers and 4 Army Men come to take you in for a hearing.

You say, what have I done, (Know one say’s a word more to you except that they have a warrant for your arrest).

You are hand cuff and lead out of your home, you look back and see your kids crying, the neighbors are all out watching you being lead away because of the commotion in the neighborhood.

You are brought in and told to wait, you look and see a group of people some you recognizer as former Church members other you have no idea who they are.

You ask a guard standing near-by, where are my Children, and my Family; he only looks at you and said “TRADER” and turns and looks the other way.

Now you are brought in before this council, and they ask you question about your family, your place of work, and finally about you Church.

You are accused of crimes against the State; you have broken the Civil Laws, and can no longer be trusted worthy of your Freedom. You have been told and warred about your failure to keep the secular day of worship and about you’re spreading lies about Jesus coming back to this earth.

You have been tried and convicted for your crimes,

Do you have anything to say for your self before sentence is passed on to you?

The Judge picks-up his gravel and say “you are hear-by sentence to Death”

Every Eye will see Jesus coming

Every Eye will see Jesus coming

*** HOW WILL YOU STAND?

There will only be two Choices “Faithful or Faithless”

How is your walk with Jesus today, it is not enough just say that you love him, we must do as He commanded us to do? John 14: 15 “If you love Me, keep My Commandments.

You must have a daily living relationship with him if you will be able to stand for him when the time comes. Remember you will not be alone Jesus will be there just like with Stevenson, giving you a Standing Ovation

Don’t trust to yourself, Peter denied Jesus three times before he learned one most importance lesson and that is just three little worlds

Just Have Faith………

Restoring Gods Truth

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

Crawfish Christians?

Share

What does it mean when you tell someone they are crawfishing!

Well down here in Louisiana it is a way of saying to back up, move backwards, to deny a statement, to go back on your word generally a Cajun term.

images[4]How is it that so many different Christian Denominations & Churches say they all believe in and keep all Ten of Gods Commandments? But if you look carful into their doctoring you can see that they really don’t keep all Ten of Gods Holy Commandments. And when you ask them about the 4th Commandments they crawfish saying we keep Sunday as our holy day of worship.

How do you think Gods feels about that?

I find in my Bible that God the Father and God the Son throughout all History wanted nothing more than a people who would be obedience without question to Gods in doing all that God asked

Adam & Eve failed when they ate of the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil. This was not really something hard that God asked of them, it was very small, you can eat from every tree except this one. Was God specific in what He said, was He being too hard, not at all it was only a test giving to mankind to see where his loyalty would be.
God also warned them to be on guard because of the rebellion that took place in Heaven so that Satan would not deceive them and cause them to sin.

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.”

God’s love for mankind was so great that nothing would be spared or withheld in the creation of this new world for man to live on. Everything was made perfect and in the book of Genesis we find that God saw and said behold that it was good.

But it was not long before Satan found his way to the new created human, and the very first thing he said was a lie that most Christians still believe today. God said you will surely Die if you eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and Satan say you will not surely Die. Today when someone Dies Christian believe they go right to heaven or to hell, but that is not what the Bible says or teaches, but that is another sermon.

Genesis: 3: 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

Adam & Eve both failed the test of loyalty and faith in God. But come on now, it was just one little piece of fruit that’s all, the problem is that it was one little piece of fruit that God said not to eat and on the day you do eat it, God said you will surely die.

Is God exact in what He tell us to do, yes He is, When God gives a command it is to be followed to the tee, nothing is to be added and nothing is to be taking away. God said it, so believe it, and that should settle it once and for all.

Let’s look at 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. 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.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Why and how did Noah find grace in the eyes of God. Noah followed what God said, he did not turn to the Left or Right even a little. If God said it, he believed it and did as God commanded. So while all the world around him were busy having fun and enjoying a life full of sin, humble Noah was faithful to his God, and so God remember Noah.

God gave Noah a massage, a massage to preach to all the world, and God gave Noah 120 years to tell people of the soon coming destruction and that safety will be found for everyone who will be in the Ark that God is providing nothing else.

Genesis 6: 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Noah did according to all that God commanded him, what do you think would have happened if Noah would have cut corners in Gods directions of building the ark. If Noah would have cut even one little corner in the building of the ark, it might have sprung a leak and sank. Is God particular when He is giving direction or a commandment, you bet He is. God wants His children to obey His commandments the exact way He gave them with no deviation, any deviation from Gods way is Sin.

Genesis: 7: 1. Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.

What would have happened if Noah did not feel it was time for him and his family to go into the ark just yet, come on God you not serious about this flooding the world thing are you.

Noah knew one thing about God, and that was to take God at His word, when God says something believe it and do as God said to do.

If you read through the Bible you will find a lot of people who God dealt with, and they all knew one thing. That is when God says something that is what He mean, never depart from it because God does not change. Hebrew: 13: 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

These days you can find a Church to fit everyone needs, if you don’t like one just go down the street and walk into another. There are Christian Churches that are more like a Rock band style to walking and falling in the spirit, just take your pick. But was this how it was in the days of the first Church, when Paul preached Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. Where then did this doctrine come from

2 Cor: 11: 4. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

Turn with me to the book of Act, this is very importance that you not only read but also understand what Paul is saying. Here Paul is telling his followers, in some of the Churches while on his way back to Jerusalem that he might never again see their faces. And there is something very importance he must share with them before he goes.

Act: 20: 26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

Paul was not afraid to tell his followers the truth; the truth is why so many of the Jews were upset at what they called this new teaching. But the problem was that it was not new, the Jews were so far off course from following God that they could not see the Truth standing right in front of them in the form of the Son of God, and we are no different today. We are so far off course from following the truth that many so called Christians want nothing to do with truth, they want it their way.

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.

Again Paul is very clear in his teaching that after he is gone that others who he calls grievous wolves will enter in among them, not sparing the flock. In our days we see all these so called TV Evangelist and their lavish lifestyle that says they are nothing like Paul or even Jesus who they preach. Some of them live in homes worth over 2 or 3 million dollars and drive the best and most expensive cars on the market. Does that not tell you something, are we so blind today that we don’t see this as sin?

1 Timothy: 6: 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

This is why Paul could say that he covered no man’s silver or gold or clothing. He worked throughout the day and preach to them with every opportunity he had and on every Sabbath: Jews and Gentiles.

31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33 I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. 34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

Our world today needs Men like Paul, who because of love for his savior Jesus Christ he went without food without drink without everything except Faith. Faith that his God will supply his needs and that his God will send His Holy Spirit before him to make ready a people to hear the words of Truth.

Paul never changed any of the Laws that God gave to the Jews, remember in Paul time there were no New Testament it has not been written yet, Paul preach from the Old Testament the same Laws and Commandments that Jesus preached, nothing changed why because God does not change.

Does God Changed, will He alter His plans and go back on His word. The answer is No God does not change and He will never go back on His word, then why do some Christian say oh that 4th commitment thing was changed, God really doesn’t care what day you keep as long as you keep one that’s ok . Is that not being a hypocrite?
Matthew: 24: 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Who was the God that gave the children of Israel the Ten Commandments? Jesus right, and when Jesus came He worshiped the Father on what day? The 7th day Sabbath right? In the Bible you will find no command telling Physical Israel or Spiritual Israel that the 4 commandment day of worship or any of the Ten Commandments has changed.

Jesus wrote the Ten Commandments Law Himself on two tablets of stone, He did not leave that to Moses or to anyone else. Why because Gods law is a part of His Character, God is Holy and His Law is Holy, God is perfect and His Law is perfect, because His Law is a reflection of Himself.

When God says to do something and gives directions on how to do it there is no cutting corners or doing it 99.9%, with God it is 100 present Gods way or nothing. Why because He is God, He is the Creator, He is the one who gives Life and apart from Him there is only death.

Now it is true a lot of good Faithful Christian men and women have no idea that the Church of Roman changed Gods Holy day of worship from Sabbath the 7th day to Sunday the 1st day of the week. They are completely innocent of not knowing this truth. James: 4: 17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
But on the other hand there are a lot of Christian men and women and Church leaders who know the truth but will not teach it. This is a sin on their part, because they know and are willfully disobeying a commandment of God for the doctrine of Man.

Matthew: 5: 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus is very very clear on this matter, that nothing in the Law Old Testament or New Testament will change or has change until the Earth is made new at His second coming.

Now there were some Leviticus Laws that came to an end when Jesus died on the cross, why because they pointed to Jesus as the Lamb of God who will take away the Sins of this world. The fulfillment of these laws met their type in Jesus, so they were made void when Jesus fulfilled them as he sacrificed, His own God giving life for all mankind. These Laws was a shadow of things to come read it for yourself. When Jesus came they ended because He was the lamb of God who take away the sins of this world.

Colossians: 2: 16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ

Hebrews: 10: 10 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect

These Laws of Sacrificing animals and the keeping of New Moon and Sabbaths were speaking of a future event that would come, a time when Jesus Himself the Lamb of God will come and take away the sins of the world by His death

11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,

Gods Son Jesus was sacrifice once for all men, women and children who by faith in Him believed that He was who He claimed to be

So you see my friend if you are still Crawfishing about Gods Law and Commandments it is time to get out of the water and remember. Hebrews: 13: 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

You will do good if you never forget this one thing, God will never change. His word is Truth and Truth does not change but it will go out and do what it is intended to do in the heart and minds of True Christians.  Jeremiah: 29: 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Deuteronomy: 4: 29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

God wants a relationship with His people, the ones who Love Him by doing the things He asked them to do, by doing it Gods way and not there way John 15: 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

  gods-love[1]Romans: 5: 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. My brother it does not get any clearer than this, God loves you and He wants you to stop Crawfishing around with His word. In order to be saved we must except what Jesus did in our behalf, Jesus told us if we love Him then show it by doing what He asked of us John: 14: 15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments

REMEMBER THIS: True Christians don’t keep Gods Commandments in order to be saved, True Christians keep Gods Commandments because they are saved, and show there love by doing what Jesus ask them to do.  that is the different

So when you know the Truth and don’t do it I am sorry to say but you are Crawfishing and to God that might be Sin.

Revelation: 14: 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

May God bless and be with you as you move forward in your Christian knowledge of loving the Lord your God with all you are.

Why is the Truth so hard to believe?

Share

I find that if I tell someone the truth they have problems believing what I say, but if I tell them a total outright lie they accept it with no problems, why is that? We live in a world where everything seems to be upside down, a world where what use to be right is now wrong and what was once wrong is now excepted as being right. Years ago when someone gave you there word you could take it to the bank, now it better be recorded or notaries and have a lot of witnesses, what happened what changed?

Reflection of Jesus in youSometimes telling the truth can really hurt but God commands that we as His people should always tell the truth.

But is it necessary to always tell the truth? Let’s say some little old lady comes up to you in church and ask what do you think of my new hat. When you look at it right away you see it is the ugliest hat you ever seen, but what do you say to the lady who is standing waiting on an answer.

Do you hurt her feeling by saying I am sorry but that is one ugly hat. Or would you do as Jesus would do, find something about it that you do like, maybe the color, the shape, a flower on it. There are many ways to answer someone and still tell the truth without hurting them.

As a minister people are always asking me about God and Religion, and what is the reason for so many different Christian Churches.

The only answer I have is to tell them because the Trust is too hard to believe and 99% of people want a religion that fits their life style and what they want to believe. So for this very reason people push aside the Truth so they can have it their way, the only problem with this is it is not Gods way and apart for God everything is sin.

If you look at most of the Christian Churches today, they all claim to be teaching the Truth from the Bible and that there Church keeps all of God Holy Commandments. But if you look a little closer into their beliefs you will find that they don’t keep Gods 4th Commandment, why is that.

Open your Bible to Matthew 15:8&9, here is Jesus telling the religious leaders of His time about a problem they had “‘these people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men” Could it be that 2000 years after Jesus came to this Earth to teach us what the Truth was that we are going back to the same problems the Jews had, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men over the commandments of God.

Look at what Paul said just before he died, Acts 20:29&30: For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. 30: Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

Take a good look at how some of the really big TV and Radio Church Leaders live. Do you see them living in Million Dollars Home and Drive the best Cars and Trucks money can buy. Are they preaching the truth in these Churches that hold many many thousands of people are or they preaching what the people want to hear. Do you think if they were preaching the Truth direct from the Bible that they would still be so popular and there Churches so full.

How is it that the religious leaders in Jesus time could not see that He was the Christ the Son of God. Because once you close your eyes to truth you will never see clear again Luke 19; 47. 47 Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him. Gods truth is the only truth there is apart from it everything else is a lie. God is a God of love and mercy He will never force His truth on anyone. But as with the religious leaders in Jesus time the same is with our religious leaders today. Religion has become a big money maker, it is the bread and butter of most religious leaders. The more people they get into their churches the more money they make. They all preach Jesus but then they all make up excuses as to why we don’t need to do what Jesus said to do. The Bible calls three things as truth John: 14:6 Jesus is Truth, John: 17:17 The Bible is Truth, Psalm: 119: 151 Gods Commandments His Ten Commandments are Truth.

Truth in Noah time was so bad that only 8 people believed it and when the rain and floods started the majority of those who did not believe it died.

Truth cannot be determined by statistics or by the number of people who believe it, the truth will always remain the truth.

Even Jesus had a hard time convening people about the Truth in His days, except for a small group of 120 men and women who believe He was indeed the true Son of God.

Jesus gave to His people the seed of Abraham His truth written on two tablets of Stone His Ten Commandments Law. He also gave them other Laws dealing with how to deal with others and how to keep healthy. He also gave them prophecy to help them know when the fullness of time would come for God the Father to send His Son into the world

But when He came to His own people they rejected Him Galatians: 4: 4. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

What happen, they had Gods holy word, it told them that the Son of God who they was to be looking for was soon to be borne, how could they miss it.. John: 1: 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Jesus people who had the Truth of His word to guide them, were so lost by believing a lie that when He did came to them they did not know Him.

I find that in today’s society people want a religion that more or less fits into their life style and truth does not really matter too much, just give it to me my way.

I once had a group of guys who wanted to know the truth of what is in the Bible; being they knew me and knew how I lived my life they ask me to do a Bible study with them. I told them; to understand the Bible and its truth you need to study both the Old and New Testaments. The reason for this was because a lot of what the new testaments says comes directly from the Old Testament and books like Daniel and Revelation are keys to unlocking the truth.

Everyone was happy with that and as we started getting into the Bible study I could see the light in their eyes began to glow with the understanding of God’s word, His truth. But about half way through the study I could see that light going out when it came to them having to give up some of the things they use to do, why is that?

Read Matthew: 13: 3 to 9:
3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

They heard the truth but because of cares in this life they started to look for ways around the truth so that they would not need to change. Even to the point of saying there is no way that all the other religions can all be wrong and just you right.

Now hear how Jesus explains the parable

Matthew: 13
18 “Therefore hear the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

When the truth is first presented to someone Joy filled their heart, but as soon as the cares and wants of this world come before them they don’t want to let go of what they had, I want Jesus but I want the world as well.

1 Peter: 5:
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Satan will stop at nothing in order to pull the Truth away from you; he will use the cares of this world, family, work, and friend to do just that

Look at Proverbs: 14: 12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

There are many different forms and types of Christian Churches for you to choose to follow, but if they are not following what the Bibles teaches from Genesis to Revelation you might be in the wrong place and when Jesus comes back to take home His true follower you might get left behind.

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.

You can’t eat from the Lords table during the day and dance on Satan table at night, it don’t work. If you are not 100% present for God then you are nothing for God, there is no halfway or sitting on the fence. Jesus said in

John 14:
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. It is as clear as that
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.

True Christians will be the ones who keep the commandments of God, the same ones Jesus kept and followed while living on earth. Look at Matthew 5 remember this is Jesus speaking saying that He did not come to change things but to fulfill them.

Matthew: 5:
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The last time I looked heaven and earth was still here

Take a look at the book of Isaiah: 66 and start at verse 22. The prophet Isaiah is giving a look into the future at the new Heaven and Earth. What will Gods people be doing?

lesson24-1722 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.

The old Earth is gone and all that was sin is no more, God and His people that love Him are in the Holy City

23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

What are they doing, from one Sabbath to another all flesh will come together to worship God

Now think about this, when God finished creating the earth on the seventh day He rested and blessed the seventh day and made it holy. He gave it to His children Adam & Eve so that they would always remember who their creator is.

We then find Him giving it to the Children of Israel telling them to Remember the Sabbath day His holy day of worship. We see Jesus and His disciples keeping the Sabbath as God the Father has commanded. After Jesus died on the cross in the New Testament we see His follower still keeping the Sabbath, and now we read the prophet Isaiah is giving a future view of the new earth and he is telling us that we are still keeping the Sabbath in the earth made new. You can’t get any clearer than that in telling the Truth.

Where will this old earth and its people who did not make the first resurrection of Gods true believers end up.

24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

How do we know this will happen in the Earth made new, because we will look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against God Law, Gods Commandments all Ten of them. Remember again what Jesus said in the book of Matthew: 5: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. If you break one of them you are guilty of breaking them all.

So how do you know what is the Bible truth and what is not the Bible truth? The Bible tell us how to check, if what you believe or what your Church is teaching does not agree with the hold Bible from Genesis to Revelation then what they are saying is not the pure Truth.

Isaiah: 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

The Bible will never contradict itself from Genesis to Revelation, if there is a contradiction the problem is not in the Bible the problem is in the interpolation.

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

Look up every scripture dealing with a subject you want to know, our days with a good concordance and the internet that is very easy. If what you believe is not in line with what the entire Bible is teaching then you have a problem not the Bible.

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: The Bible says that All Scripture not some scripture and that includes the Old & New Testaments is giving by the inspiration of God

Foe over 1600 years men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write what God was showing them and telling them. All scripture from Genesis to Revelation is the inspired word of God, and it is to be used for doctrine and reproof and correction of what we think is truth. If what you believe is not 100% in line with the Bible then what you believe is a lie.

The prophet Daniel was inspired by God to tell us about future events that would happen to His people so that they would believe and have faith and put there life in His hands. God’s true believers were persecuted by the Roman Church all through the dark ages. Read Fox’s book of Martyrs

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: 8: 12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

This is why it is so important to study the Bible for yourself and not go by a priest or pastor, they could be wrong. Forget what you learned in school about God and go to the Bible and read it letting Gods Holy Spirit lead you into all Truth.

Jesus told us that the way would not be easy, it is not getting baptized and living happy ever after. The road to truth is narrow and few believe and follow it.

Matthew: 7:
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Jesus also told us that there will be false teachers claiming to have a link direct to God and will deceive many with there lies. But here again we must go by what the Bible says not man
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Just because a Church is big and has the best of everything does not mean it is a true church following Gods truth. Look at what Jesus told us

Matthew: 7:
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?

They may have done a lot of good and wonderful things and preformed many miracles but if they are not keeping and teaching the pure truth of God’s word they are lost and don’t know it.

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

Just before Jesus comes back to this world we are told that persecution of God true believers will once again take place. How will you know the different between God true believer, the book of Revelation makes it very clear! God’s holy people will be the ones being persecuted because they will be the ones keeping God Commandments

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.

Out of the entire world the prophet John sees only a small group of people who are faithful to God; they are the ones doing what Jesus done, keeping His Father Commandments all Ten of them.

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

When the time comes Jesus will divide His true believers from the fake believers. Matthew: 25: 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats

My friends whoever you are reading this please stop and pray right now asking God to show you His truth. But beware because when God is letting His light shine on you that you don’t reject it or try and look for ways around it.

Remember we are all baptized into the one and only body of God, so stop believing in what others say is the truth and go look it up for yourself.

Jesus CallingEphesians: 4:
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

There is only one Truth and that is the pure word of God found in His book the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, everything else is a lie.

Restoring Gods Truth

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:

Am I a Real Christian?

Are you a Christian? Just because you go to Church or belong to some religious organization it does not mean that you are a

Gods commandment

Gods commandment

Christian. So what is a Christian or better yet what makes a person a Christian, look at Act 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. So why were they called Christians because of their Christ Likeness.

So test yourself and see if you are or are not a Christian. There is a very simple way of checking; first you will need to get two things a tape recorder and a hammer. When you are ready press record on the tape recorder then take the hammer and hit your thumb. As soon as the pain goes away rewind the tape player and listen to the words that came out of your mouth. You see anyone can call themselves a Christian on the outside, but it is what’s on the inside that makes a person a real Christian.

Read the 4 Gospels in the Bible about how Jesus conducted Himself in all of life situations and compare that to your life style. What does it say to you, is there anything that needs to change in your life?

Here are some good scriptures on being a true Christian.

Matthew: 6:24
Romans: 12:1
James: 1:22
James: 4:17

Take a look at how Jesus lived His life here on this earth.

After the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior we see Christ gave the commission to His disciples. “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth,” He said “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15. Again and again the words were repeated, that the disciples might grasp their significance. Upon all the inhabitants of the earth, high and low, rich and poor, was the light of heaven to shine in clear, strong rays. The disciples were to be co-laborers with their Redeemer in the work of saving souls for Gods kingdom..

The commission had been given to the twelve when Christ met with them in the upper chamber; but it was now to be given to all His true believers. At the meeting on a mountain in Galilee, all the believers who could be called together were assembled. Of this meeting Christ Himself, before His death, had designated the time and place. The angel at the tomb reminded the disciples of His promise to meet them in Galilee.

The promise was repeated to the believers who were gathered at Jerusalem during the Passover week, and through them it reached many lonely ones who were mourning the death of their Lord. With intense interest all looked forward to the interview. They made their way to the place of meeting by circuitous routes, coming in from every direction, to avoid exciting the suspicion of the jealous Jews. With wondering hearts they came, talking earnestly together of the news that had reached them concerning Christ.

At the time appointed, about five hundred believers were collected in little knots on the mountainside, eager to learn all that could be learned from those who had seen Christ since His resurrection. From group to group the disciples passed, telling all they had seen and heard of Jesus, and reasoning from the Scriptures as He had done with them. Thomas recounted the story of his unbelief, and told how his doubts had been swept away.

Suddenly Jesus stood among them. No one could tell whence or how He came. Many who were present had never before seen Him; but in His hands and feet they beheld the marks of the crucifixion; His countenance was as the face of God, and when they saw Him, they worshiped Him.

This was the only interview that Jesus had with many of the believers after His resurrection. He came and spoke to them saying, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.” The disciples had worshiped Him before He spoke, but His words, falling from lips that had been closed in death, thrilled them with peculiar power. He was now the risen Savior. Many of them had seen Him exercise His power in healing the sick and controlling satanic agencies.

They believed that He possessed power to set up His kingdom at Jerusalem, power to quell all opposition, power over the elements of nature. He had stilled the angry waters; He had walked upon the white-crested billows; He had raised the dead to life. Now He declared that “all power” was given to Him. His words carried the minds of His hearers above earthly and temporal things to the heavenly and eternal. They were lifted to the highest conception of His dignity and glory.

Christ’s words on the mountainside were the announcement that His sacrifice in behalf of man was full and complete. The conditions of the atonement had been fulfilled; the work for which He came to this world had been accomplished. He was on His way to the throne of God, to be honored by angels, principalities, and powers. He had entered upon His mediatorial work. Clothed with boundless authority, He gave His commission to the disciples: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,” “baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:19, 20,

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you Christ said to His true believers. If we are to be a part of Christ true believers today we like His true believes 2000 years ago need to be doing the same thing, don’t you agree. Remember God does not change men change but God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Almost 2000 years ago the Son of God Jesus the very word of God walked this earth. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

Jesus was the master creator of not only our world but of all the heavens of heavens. It was Jesus who formed man out of the dust of the earth and breathe into him the spirit of live from his creator God. It was also Jesus who told our first parents not to eat from one tree in the garden as a test of man obedience to his creator God. It was also Jesus who in console with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit said that if mankind failed the test of obedience He would give His life in their place. Why because the law said in Ezekiel 18:20: The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The children of Israel were the chosen people of God to tell the world about Him. But instead of telling the world about God they built wall between themselves and the gentiles.

The Bible tells us in John: 1: 11 that Jesus came to His own people, but His own people who should have been watching for the fulfillment of the prophecy’s about His coming were sleeping on the job.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.12 But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

If you want to be a true Christian then you must live as Jesus lived, is that not correct. What was the one thing that Jesus always did that made Him so different, He kept His Father Commandments? What was His Father Commandments John: 15:9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.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 has giving to man His laws His Ten Commandments law that if a man will live by them it will show to the world who you really love. The first 4 commandments are on one table of stone telling about mans duty and love to his Creator God, the other 6 on a table of stone is man duty and love to his neighbor, (His friend, his brother, where he works, people he meets every day, and most of people who are poor and in need of help)

When Jesus was asked by a rich young Ruler what must he do to be saved Jesus told him to keep the Commandments go read the story of the rich young ruler in Mark 10: 17 to 21. If Jesus had any plans to change any of the Ten Commandments why would He tell this young man to keep them. The reason was that Jesus also kept them because they were His Father Commandments and He Gods Son lived His life by them to show the world that man can live but every world that comes out of the mouth of his Creator God.
John: 15: 11“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

Right here Jesus is saying this is the fulfillment of the Father last 6 Commandments. They were written on tables of stone that mean that cannot be changed.

All through the Bible you will find every law spoken of has a relationship to one if not more of God Ten Commandments law that He wrote on two tables’s stone and gave to His people.

Jesus CallingJohn: 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. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Want to know if you are a true Christian, remember a few years ago there were a lot of people with the sign (WWJD: What Would Jesus Do). Well that is very true, do what Jesus did because after all there is where the name Christian came from, people living and doing what Jesus did.

If Jesus was kind to His enemies, you too be kind to your enemies and forgive them as Jesus would do. If Jesus spent time in praying, you should also spend time every morning and evening praying for strength from God to be like His with everyone you meet. If Jesus went out of His way to give someone help, then you too should be ready always to lend a hand to someone in need. If Jesus went to Church every week and did it on the Day His Father said was holy the (Sabbath) then what day do you think you should be going to Church.

Please remember something that the New Testament Scriptures was not written till almost 15 or 20 years after the Death of our Lord Jesus. So just like Jesus did, also did His follower, they preached and went to Church every Sabbath. They were showing the people in the Old Testament scriptures the prophecy’s that all things pointed to Jesus who was the Son of God the Father.

Go and take a look at Paul who was the first missionary to the Gentile, look at Acts: 18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. Know where in the Bible does it says anything about a change being made to God’s Commandment Law. What is really sad is the fact that most Christian don’t even know what day Sabbath is. Why because the Roman Church changed the Sabbath to Sunday and so people take it for what it is and never question the Church. No matter how good or holy a person appears on the outside, it is what’s on the inside that counts.

No Man no matter who he is or how holy he may seem to be has the authority to change any of Gods Laws.

Look at what Paul has to say about that.

Galatians: 1: 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Paul is saying that if anyone comes to you preaching any other Gospel then the one that he preach at the first let that man be accursed. In other words don’t listen to him or what he has to say, because he is a liar, and the Bible said that Satan is the father of all liar.

Because the gift of God is eternal life through only one person, God Son Jesus Christ.

Romans: 6: 23
23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Propose in your heart today before it is too late to follow Jesus and by following Him and doing the things He did, it will tell the world what you are. Because what will show on the inside will be the same on the outside, Christian (Christ Like)

God bless you my friend

THANK YOU

Have you ever done something for someone just out of the goodness of your heart and when you finish you don’t get so much as a thank you.

Car broken downI was traveling very early one morning to go visit one of the company’s ships that was having problems. It was about 4am and still very dark, right about when I was getting ready to cross a bridge in Patterson Louisiana out of the corner of my eye I seen three women standing on the road by a car. I looked back but could not see anything because it was so dark and they did not have the car lights on. So I prayed and turned around and went back to see if they needed help. I pulled over and sure enough they had a flat tire and did not know how to change it. Two of the women were talking to me but the 3rd one was standing off a little ways holding the lug wrench tight in her hand.

Well I am a nice guy so I told them no problem I can change it for them, As I looked in the back seat of there car there was a little baby and a little girl sleeping so I did not want to disturb them. I got the spare tire and jack out and begin to jack-up the car but needed the lug wrench to remove the tire lugs. So I had to ask the one lady to let me have the lug wrench but she did not want to let go of it, finely one of the other two ladies had to get it for me, I understood she was afraid because she did not know me, well I too was a little afraid because I did not know them specially the one holding the wrench.

Anyway after I got the tire changed and the old tire back in the trunk of the car they took off. Wow not so much as a thank you. Has anything like that ever happened to you, you go to help someone who is in trouble, you spend your time helping them and when you are finished not so much as a thank you. How would that make you feel, how do you think Gods feels when we do the same to Him everyday.

How many times do you stop to thank God for what He has done in your life?

I had a very hard time fighting cancer about 9 years ago, and when it came back a 3rd time I knew there was no fighting left in me, all I could do what to put it in Gods hand. But as many others I forgot about God until there was nothing more that doctors could do for me. That is a shame and we all do it, we try to fix things our way first forgetting about God until things are so bad there is nothing we can do. But God in His love for mankind always reaches down and take hold of us right when we need Him most.

But how many of us go back and thank Him for what He does everyday in our behalf.

Luke 17: 11-19
11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

When Paul wrote his letter to the Galatians, he told them plainly that if anyone tried to preach a different gospel to them, that person should be “accursed”—even if it was him or an angel. That was strong language, but Paul needed to get their attention. He had taught them salvation by faith in Christ alone, but some others came in and had been teaching the Galatians something quite different, telling them they needed to do certain other things in order to be saved. They were telling them they need to work for there salvation. There is nothing we can do to earn eternal life, eternal life is a free gift from God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ only as we put our faith in Jesus are we saved.

The gospel Paul had preached, he reminded them, was not something he had made up. No human taught or gave him the gospel. He says, “It came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.” After Paul’s conversion, Jesus Himself revealed the gospel to him.

There is only one gospel. At its core stand’s Jesus Christ and His sacrifice which reconciles us back to God the Father through faith. There is nothing we can do to earn this salvation; He gives it to us as a free gift of Gods love to His created being.

God is love and He love us with a love that mankind is not capable of understanding, why because He God loves us with a Godly love, a love that says I will die that you might live. This is the Gospel Paul preach to the Galatians it is found in the book of John: 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave us His Son, His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Wow that is wonderful just knowing that my Creator God loves me so much that even while I was in the dark and sinning He died to give me life and show me a better way to live. But here is the question, are you willing to accept what God did for you and make Him a part of your daily life. Are you ready to live by the truth of Gods holy word found only in the Bible from cover to cover, new and old testaments all one book.

The problem Paul had when he went to the gentiles with the Gospel Truth was other men coming in behind him and preaching something quite different. If anyone tried to preach a different gospel to them, Paul said that person should be “accursed”—even if it was him or an angel don’t believe what they say, go by the Bible only. Why because 2 Corinthians 11:14 is telling us that Satin will stop at nothing to decive you “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light”.

None of us had ever seen an angel so if satan would come to someone as a angel from heaven and saying that he is God he is Jesus the one who died for all of us, how would we know if he is or is not a angle or Jesus sent from heaven.

Remember in the Garden of Eden Satan came to Eve in the form of a snake and deceived her into eating the fruit that God said not to eat. There was nothing wrong with the fruit the problem was God said not to eat from this one tree as a test of mans loyalty and obedient to what He told them to do, there was nothing in the fruit that made them good or evil

We must go by Gods word and by His word only,
John: 17:17: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. So Look at what Isaiah the prophet or man of God say

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

lesson02-12Gods Law; His Ten Commandments, His Law that He wrote in stone with His own finger and gave it to His people. At that time His people was the children of Israel, but after they refused and rejected and killed him on the Cross and then stoned and killed His disciples the Gospel massage went to the Gentile. The massage of God loves to the Gentiles by His servant Paul an apogeal of Jesus Christ. We are now Gods people we are now His servants and we don’t want to follow in the foot steps of the children of Israel. What was there problem, mostly in not keeping God commandment, He loved and gave to them all the best heaven could give but they never thanked Him back they never followed what He asked them to do to show that they loved Him back.

Please understand one very important fact and that 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. Then in John 14:15 Jesus tells us how to live to show that we love Him and that we are His follower His people. John: 14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. How simple just like the test in the Garden of Eden, Gods command was not to eat from one tree, now He God Jesus is saying if you love me show it to the world by doing what I ask you to do, keep my commandments.

By keeping them you are saying Thank You Lord for all you have done for me. Thank you Lord that evening while I was a sinner lost in this world of sin you did not give up on me. Thank you Lord because you came and die in my place and took my sins upon you. Romans: 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We don’t keep Gods Ten Commandments to be saved; we keep them because we are saved and we love Him for all He has done for us and want to show the world who is our Lord & King. Look at Rev: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.

Rev: 19:10: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 Look at what the angle is telling John, Satan is going to make war with the Saints of God, with Gods holy people. But Gods people will not the majority, they are the few the angle calls them a remnant. A remnant is a part of something that is left when the other parts are gone a small piece of cloth that is left after the rest of the cloth has been sold. When the time of Jesus return draws near there will be only two ways to go, If you are no part of Gods remnant this few you will be on the wrong side.

The dragon who is Satan the devil the father of lies wants you to believe him and not God, but the Bible is very clear on what we need to do to show the world we are not part of this world but of the new world that Jesus is making for His people.

The gift of God is eternal life, eternal life in a new heaven and a new earth with no more pain, sickness, suffering, and no more death.

Revelation 21: 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.2 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.

lesson07-16He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. How beautiful are these words spoken by God Himself as a promise to all who by faith follow Him and do the things He asked them to do. Thank you Father for all you done so that I may have life eternal with you in the new Earth that you will create for your people, the ones that do as you asked them to do and keep your Law because they love you.
When was the last time you told God thank you?
