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.

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.

As the days of Noah were so shall the end be

Share

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

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

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

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

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

___________________________________________________________________

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read Matthew 24:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Christ and Family

Christ and Family

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

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

Blind Spot in your life

Is there a Blind Spot in your life

Blind SpotI was driving the other day, doing my normal thing and needed to get into the other lane. I looked in the mirror and did not see anything so I started to pull over. But just as I started I seen a little white car in that lane so I quickly pulled back into my lane and said wow I almost ran over that little car where did it come from; well it was right there but it was in my blind spot I did not see it. There is danger in our life everyday but the worse danger is the one we don’t see until it is too late, the one that can change our life forever.

Let us Pray!
————————————————————————————————————–
Mt:15:14: Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Are there blind spots in your life that sometime you do see, or even know that they are there?
Maybe a place where we put things we don’t want to fully get rid of but at the same time don’t want to hold on too.

I want to look at the story in the Bible where a rich young man came running up to Jesus and asked a very powerful question, in fact the same question many people still ask today.
Matthew 19:
16: Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
• Now note the first problem,
What good thing shall I do, this rich young ruler, He had a blind spot he was lost and could not see it.
The same it is with many Christians who are trying to get to Heaven on there own accord
17: And he said unto him (Jesus speaking), Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
Look at the answer Jesus gave seamed simple
It is very fitting for all of us here today to also understand what this means.
Can Keeping the Ten Commandments save us, (you might say that is what Jesus was saying) Wrong
We don’t keep the Commandments to be saved, we keep them because we are saved that Is the different and a very vital different.
• Now listen to the young man
18: He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
19: Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
20: The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
Have you been to that point, maybe wondering, what lack I yet: in your Christian experience

Here was a blind spot a lost soul; he assumed that because of the little good he had done in keeping a few of the commandments he was ok with all of them.
What Jesus does next it to try and move the man in a position that he can see his true lost condition

21: Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
When Jesus was telling him to sell all he had and follow Him, it was not just his money Jesus was talking about, it was a complete life style change he needed.
Get rid of the garbage and material things that are holding you down and except Jesus as your savory
What an invitation that Jesus gave to him but he could not accept, I feel for this pore lost soul. Come and follow me the Savior said but he was lost in a world of material things he wanted eternity life but did not want to let go of what it takes to have eternity life.
His life was a fake, he was showing on the out side, something that he was not on the inside, he was lost and did not know it.
Jesus gave him directions on what to do to be saved
22: But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
How many times will we turn away from Jesus all because we can’t let go of the things of this world.
Things like:
Money
Time
Pride
Job
Position
Church
Friends

All are things we sometime put before serving God, and when we do they become our God.
There are many people who believe in God and call themselves Christians, but they are only a Christian on the outside. They are good people, they don’t hurt anyone, they go to Church every week, they pay there Tithe and give an offering.
On the outside they look just like the real thing, but what about the inside. Look at what Jesus said to the Religious Leaders in

CemataryMatthew: 23: 27: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. 28: Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
They believe they were OK, they are doing everything all the others are doing, on the outside they are Christians; the problem was all on the inside. God is in there life but He is not first in there life, so just like this rich young man he had other things before God. Exodus: 20: 3: Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
They live in there lots condition never knowing it and when truth is brought before them they don’t see or feel a need for it.

Jesus gave us a parallel about the truth of this man and many others like him there true condition in Luke 17: 32: Remember Lot’s wife.
What was the problem with Lots wife……..
• Story: Lots Wife:

Read the story of Lot & his family in Genesis 19:
14: And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

Some of Lots children’s lost there first love for God and traded there humble faith for the things of this world. Lots children were in a lost condition, when Lot told them the truth about what was fixing to happen they just looked at him as some crazy old man.

15: And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16: And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
17: And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

Is it important to listen to the instructions that God has giving to His true followers His true Children who are true Christians, what happened when Lots wife looked back?
26: But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
Lots wife was lost in the trinkets of this world; they blinded her to her true spiritual condition
She could not see even when God sent Angles to rescue her and her family; the same is with many Christians in our world today
Many of people who call themselves Christians are lost
The very first step in being saved is to open your eyes and admit that you are lost.
Let’s look over here at Proverbs 28:13. He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
If you are not saved 100% present you are not saved at all, cast aside the cares of this world, don’t put anything between you and God.

That goes for  Family,Husband, Children, Money, Friend, Church, Cars, Work, or health. Nothing is of more important then fowling what Jesus told you to do. Mark: 4:19: And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

John: 14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments. Not the commandments of this world or your Church but the commandments that Jesus Himself has giving to you.

Look at what Jesus was saying in Matthew: 7:
21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23: And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
In that day there will be many who call themselves Christian that Jesus will tell, I never knew you. They are ones blinded by following the world and there Church standard of being a Christian not Gods.
A woodsman was found wandering aimlessly in the deep woods then someone asked him: “Are you lost?” and the woodsman said, “No. I’m not lost! My campsite is lost!”

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:
We are a lot like that man, aren’t we?
We are too proud to admit that we are in a lost spiritual condition.
We are too proud to ask God to help and forgive us.
We are too proud to admit to our family that we are more interested in studying the Bible and praying then being a part of the world.
To proud to admit we need to confess our sins to the Lord!
Some men when they are lost will drive their car around and around for hours…they are not going to stop to ask for directions. They would drive until they run out of gas before they would ask for directions!
You are not like that, fortunately.
We need to admit that we are lost. God gave to men His Word, His Law, His Commandments, all in one Book called the Bible so that no one would be lost. The Bible is man GPS to help and guide us to see the need for a savoir.
Then we need to follow those directions.
• We need to admit our wickedness and not try to cover up our sins. It is said to think that sometimes we are like the woodsman who lost his campsite.

Paul Harvey tells a story of four young men who were late to school one morning. Very, very late.
They walked in, and the teacher asked “where have you been?” “Well, we had a flat tire.”
And the sympathetic teacher smiled and told them, “Well that’s too bad you are so late, you missed the test.
But I’ll tell you what. I will give you a paper and a pencil, and if you can answer one question I will give you a hundred percent on the test.
” So she put them in the four corners of the room. They each had a pencil and a white piece of paper, and she said “Just tell me this simple thing.
Which tire was flat?” They flunked.
• Why do human beings like to cover up our sins? Maybe we try to save face.
But God says, “Confess your sins” “Forsake your sins.” It takes an honest person to be saved.
• Charles Colson’s book, “Born Again,” is about the Watergate era.
He talks about Richard Milhouse Nixon.
Richard Nixon could never admit that he was wrong in anything. Colson was at a meeting one time with Nixon. Nixon obviously had a cold.
His nose was running, his face was red, he was sneezing. He had all the symptoms of a cold. But he would never admit it. He never admitted anything wrong.
WE need to tell Jesus. I acknowledged my sin to you, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,’ and God will forgave the iniquity of my sin.
• I think sometimes we are like the woodsman who lost his campsite.
We almost enjoy our lost condition. But we don’t want to admit it.
We’re out there. We actually love the world and it makes us feel secure. We feel safe out in the world.
But we live in a doomed world. All who do not come out of it and come to Jesus their Savior will die in their sins.
Like Lot’s wife, we could be lost and not know until it is too late.
Luke 17:33 says, Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
Lot’s wife felt secure in Sodom. She was probably the spice of the party by night, and the salt of death by day.
Admit that you are lost. Admit that you can’t save yourself. And invite Jesus in to your live

How to avoid having a blind spot in your life and being lost in this world. By doing what Jesus told us to do and showing our love to His by keeping His words and living as He lived.
Matthew 7:
1: Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2: For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3: And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4: Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5: Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

You don’t have to be Blind and you don’t have to be Lost, if you except Jesus as your savoir and invite him into your life.
Try giving Him control of the steering wheel; Just don’t think it is easy
He said I came to save all who will by Faith believe in me and do the things I tell them to do.
images 4

I pray for you my friend and for all who is reading this sermon. Give you life to Jesus today, read his word everyday, and do the things Jesus did, and find a Church that Keep all 10 of Gods commandments.

Remember no one if perfect and no Church is perfect, the only way we can become perfect is by letting Jesus take over our life.

Time is Running Out!

About 12 years ago I was having a lot of problems with nose bleeding. So Jesus holding a man prayinglike anyone I went to see my doctor about it who sent me to see an ENT. What he said was not what I was wanting to hear, that nasty word that we all fear, sorry but you have Cancer. Cancer who me I am only 46 years old in great health, I don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t due drugs, doc there must be a mistake. No there is no mistake he said, now comes the hard part how do I tell my family and what will my future be like. Time for me was running out right when I was in the prime of my life. Read More…

To Obey is better

Share

Some time ago I ran across a wedding prayer that illustrates how we substitute religious talk for obedience. This is a girl praying on her wedding day asking God to Bless her:

Love“Dear God. I can hardly believe that this is my wedding day. I know I haven’t been able to spend much time with You lately, with all the rush of getting ready for today, and I’m sorry. I guess, too, that I feel a little guilty when I try to pray about all this, since Larry still isn’t a Christian. But oh, Father, I love him so much, what else can I do? I just couldn’t give him up. Oh, You must save him, some way, somehow.

You know how much I’ve prayed for him, and the way we’ve discussed the gospel together. I’ve tried not to appear too religious, I know, but that’s because I didn’t want to scare him off. But he’s not totally against you or anything. I can’t understand why he hasn’t responded. Oh, if he only were a Christian now.

Dear Father, please bless our marriage. I don’t want to disobey You, but I do love him and I want to be his wife, so please be with us and please don’t let it rain and spoil my wedding day.”

 

Let us Pray!
Silly story isn’t it, God here are my conditions. Take it or leave it!
But how many of say that very thing, Lord I know I should not do that and I know this too is wrong but just give me a little more time and right after I finish with this I will come and serve you so please keep sending me your blessing. Amen
God may be a God of love but He is also a God of order. With out order with out obeying is only confusion and destruction
Did you know that Obeying Leads to Wisdom and knowledge

 
Obeying your parents is one of the most difficult things to do as a teenager. This is a time that you want to spread your wings and do things on your own. You want your independence, and you want to prove you can be a responsible adult. Yet there is still a level of needing your parents to guide you through this time, and there is still so much you can learn from them while you’re still a teen.
There are times when obeying your parents can be really tough. We all think we know enough to make our own decisions. But do we really? God reminds us that it is a foolish man that does not seek to become more disciplined and wise
Proverbs 1:
7: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 8: My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 9: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
The most important people in our lives are our parents. They can be the greatest guides we have in this life, and they can lead us in the path God has for us…if you let them. For most of us, our parents offer advice and discipline out of love, and we would do well to listen and learn from what they have to say.
Exodus 20: 12: Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Do you realize that by obeying your Mother & Father it will help you to have a longer life. That is what Gods commandment is saying; if you honor them God will honor you.
If you read the book of Amos as you start reading you will find there a Father who is pleading with His children to do one thing and that is to just obey Him.

 

1. Why would that be? is it because he is a mean old man
2. Maybe his father did not let him do anything that was fun and he is doing the same to you
3. Maybe you think, Old people don’t know how to have fun anymore.
4. Even worse then His children not listen they go out and do exactly the opposite of what he spent his life teaching them.

That is a slap in the face to the Father

 

So why is the Father pleading for His children to Obey Him: Because He knows better then they do what they have need of. And like any Father He wants to give His children the things they need to make them happy not the things they think will make them happy.

 

But all the Father can see is how they have cast aside His gifts and trampled His Laws under there feet. Why would a Father want to continue to give them anything else? And the worse thing of all is for the children to turn away completely and go and give to someone else the respect and honor due only to the true Father.

 

When God first created mankind all God asked was one thing, just obey the things I tell you and all this is your forever.

 

Story: Adam & Eve God gave them the keys to the City and they blew it!
What if someone offered you to live in a paradise place where everything is paid for; a beautiful home the best cars money can buy. A place where you will never get sick or have any pain or sorrow, where you can go out and do anything and go any place in the world you wanted to go.

 

Wow that would be a dream come true. But there is only one little stipulation; way out in the back there is an old building. And you are told never to go in it for in the day you enter it or even open the door everything will be gone. How long do you think it will take before curiosity will get the best of you.

Is God particular about things He tells us to do? You better know it.
Lets look at what God told the Children of Israel when he was leading them to a land of Mike & Honey.

Deut:11:
23: Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.
24: Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
25: There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.

Did you read that correctly, if you obey what God told you to do there shell not a man be able to stand before you.

26: Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
27: A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
28: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

What did God want, only for them to obey what He told them, what did they do the opposite of what God told them to do. How can you expect God to bless you if you are not doing what he told you to do so he can protect you.

7cIf someone is blessing you and giving you everything you need and want you to be happy. Would you be thankful, how would you show that you are thankful? By doing what they said right.

I tell you one of the hardest things in my life was raising my children, because I was pulling them one way, and the World was pulling them another. I provided for there every need; I gave them the best of what I could; even if I had to deny myself of something I made sure they did not lack.

What else could I have done as a father to show my children my love for them then to give then my very life?

God lead His people out of Egypt to a land of promises, to do this He called a man by the name of Moses to be there leader and guide.

Here is faith my friend. We need to learn to trust God at His word; If God is leading you to do something don’t worry about things getting in the way; Just trust God.

The very present of God was right there with the children of Israel everyday and yet they did not believe. All they did was to complain

Exodus:14:12: Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

Numbers:21:5: And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

Why were they mad and complaining, God was leading them out of being slaves, so why were they mad.

They could not see how God was going to provide for them. They were looking at all the problems when they should have trusted God.

They seen all the plague that God sent on the Egyptians and how He kept them safe.

They seen God divide the Red Sea for them to safely walk across and how God closed up the water and destroyed the entire Egyptian army.

They seen all this but they could not see how God could provide food and water for all of them.

I want to share something with you, if you were there with them you would more then liking been one of them rebelling against God. Why because that is human nature, and what we need to learn is to put human nature aside and blind fold our eyes and just trust God at His word.

Sometime we need to stop and think, if God created this world and everything in it then he can also create what is needed.

Let me ask you a question,
Do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.
Do you believe that the Bible is 100 percent true?

Turn with me to a very importance scripture, this scripture if the very foundation of God Himself 1st John:4:8: He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

What does the Bible say God is? LOVE

God is love and what do you do when you love someone. You want to make them happy correct.

Do you remember when you first got married, how if that special someone in your life asked you to do something how it was a joy to do it no matter what it was.

What made it a joy “LOVE” right and what does the Bible say God is God is love

1st John:4:16: And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Now that we understanding what God is like, lets look at what He tell us.

John:14:23: 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.

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

I had people tell me that no one can keep all 10 commandments it is impossible that is why Jesus had to come and do away with them. Is that what the Bible says, I don’t think so. Jesus said if you Love me you will keep them and by keeping them the world will know that you love me.

 

lesson02-12A loving God would not make commandment that were impossible to keep.
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye CONTINUE IN MY WORD, then are ye my disciples indeed; And YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31, 32
Only those who OBEY God and OBEY what they learn from His word can continue growing in His truth.
Why are there so many supposed to be Bible scholars that can’t come to a good understanding of Scripture? The reason is that spiritual things “are spiritually discerned.” You must have Gods Holy Spirit working in you so that He will lead you into all Truth .
John:16:13: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Obedience Brings You Closer to God
God is the father of us all. There is a reason why we use a term like father to describe our relationship with Him, because just as we are to obey our parents, we are to obey God. If we cannot obey our earthly parents, how are we to obey our Heavenly one?
Faithfulness comes out of obedience to God. As we learn to obey, we learn to be wise in making our decisions in life. As we learn to obey, we learn to open up our eyes and ears to God’s plan for us. Obedience is the first step in living a Christian life. It helps give us strength in our faith and the ability to overcome temptations that can lead us astray.

Obeying is not Hard
No one says obeying our parents is easy. Sometimes it feels like our parents are from a whole other world. Sure, they come from a different generation, and we may not always understand their reasoning.
However, we don’t always understand God, either, but we know that what God does is for our own good. In the case of our parents, it’s that way, too.
We need to realize, though, that there will be pitfalls in obeying our parents, and there will be times that obedience becomes so difficult. Yet obedience takes work.
How do we show Obedience?
1. Listen
2. Doing
3. Show Respect
4. Have Patience
5. Communicate

Heaven will be filled with only one kind of people, and that is people that totally trust God. 99.9% of the time. Will that be good enought?
That may be good for man but not with God, with God it is all or nothing.

You either have 100% faith that God will do what He says He will do or you will be truly Left Behind.

 

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

Are you a Christian by Gods standards or a Christian by the World Standards? It will make a bight difference in the end as to where you will spend eternity!

 

Psalms 111: 10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:

Friend I pray that as you read this little sermon it will help you to understand more about Gods love for you. In fact the Father loves you so much that He sent His Son to this planet to show us how to live. He lived a life of Love and helping other, He lived a life of obeying His father commandments.

The Bible tells us in Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; We have all sinned and according to the law we must someday die. but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. All who by faith and obedience to God will live again by the grace that Gods Son Jesus has giving to all.

Gods Son gave His life for us why” John 15:23 Because God said that Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

God loves us, each and everyone of us, and He know what is best. Satan will do all he can to keep you from knowing God and knowing His love for you.

I am the way the truth and the Light

I am the way the truth and the Light

Don’t let Satan keep you from what is already yours. Jesus says if you love me show the world that you love me by doing the things I told you to do. If ye love me, keep my commandments. John:14:15:

God Bless and be with you all

What does the Bible say?

Share

When my Dad said something he meant what he said, there was no such thing as a second chance.

I grew up with two brothers older then me just about 11 months apart, and we fought like cats and dogs.

When we did something bad my dad made sure we knew not to do it again. Let’s say he had a way of making an impression on you that you would never forget.

He did all he knew to do, to teach us right from wrong.

The sad thing is when he was young he never knew God and never knew how to show love.

I am glad that God is nothing like, my earthly father.

My Heavenly Father is a Father of Love and Kindness toward His children.

He makes sure you know the different between right & wrong, but He will not force you to either one He does it with love.

It is a choice that He gives each of us to know Him and Love Him.

His Word His Truth is all that a Man needs to live

Let Us Pray !
———————————————————

When we study the Bible and want to know Bible Truth there is only one way and that is to pray for the help of Gods Holy Spirit and let the Bible interpret itself..

When man tries to intrepid what the Bible said, he is seldomly right.

Doesn’t God send the Holy Spirit to everyone that tries to understand the Bible?
 
Answer: No, it depends on your motive, intentions and your obedience to what you’re learning. Note these verses:
 

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, WE OUGHT TO OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MEN. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also THE HOLY GHOST, WHOM GOD HATH GIVEN TO THEM THAT OBEY HIM.” (Acts 5:29-32)

When you find the truth in Gods word and do it not, you shut off His Spirit of truth, If you find truth in Gods word and you Obey His word God will lead you into more truth.

If any man WILL DO HIS WILL, HE SHALL KNOW THE DOCTRINE, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” John 7:17

 

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye CONTINUE IN MY WORD, then are ye my disciples indeed; And YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31, 32

 

Only those who OBEY God and OBEY what they learn from His word can continue growing in truth.

 

The Bible must be studied in accordance with how the Bible tells you to study it or you will walk away with the wrong interpretation of what it is saying.

Many of good men have gone wrong trying to interpret the Bible; they study but not in accordance with how the Bible tells them to study.

I can take the Bible and a scripture and make you believe anything I want and show you scripture to back it up. But is it Truth? It is coming out of the Bible?

But it is nothing more then a man made interpretation of Gods word.

Why are there so many people (Bible scholars included) that can’t come to a good understanding of Scripture? The reason is that spiritual things “are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2: 

13: Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
 
Without the Holy Spirit’s help a person can’t understand the Bible.

2Pt:3:17: Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

A few weeks ago my sermon was on What is Truth, and we found out that the only thing that is Truth is God’s Word.

Apart from God’s Word is only a lie.

So if God’s Word is Truth and His Spirit is Truth, then we must ask what does it teach or say.

God’s word is Truth
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 1:14 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 we use God’s word to find out what Truth is should we not also use God’s word to tell us how to intrepid His word, His Truth!

Let’s look at the Book of Isaiah and see what it says on How we should study the Bible

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

Isa: 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

So if we are to know Truth and know What the Bible teaches as Truth we must also study it in accordance how God has told us to study it.

Is that right… Who knows best God right….

At work many of the people I work with are all ways asking me if I am a Jew. I say Why do you ask that…..

Then they said , why do you keep all those Old Jewish rules and laws.

I then ask Old Jewish Rules and Laws Please explain.

That thing about the Sabbath day and not being able to eat Meat or Pork

I then ask them are you sure that is a Jewish thing.

In fact Jewish people eat Meat and they Worship on the Day God told them to Worship on, but if that makes anyone a Jew then I might be a Monkeys uncle accordance to Darwin.

I am not a Jew and I know following God word don’t not make any one a Jew, what it does do is make them a Bible believing Christian and that makes them a Spiritual Jew.

Let’s look into God’s Word and see where did keeping the Sabbath and eating meat and unclean meat come from.

Let’s see if in fact they are just an old Jewish rule and Law and not for us today.

Genesis 2:
1: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2: And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3: And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4: These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

So here we find that Adam & Eve were the first two Jewish people because they kept the Seventh day holy as God commanded them before Sin entered this world.

So Adam & Eve kept the Seventh-day of the week holy, why because God told them to keep it Holy, not by force but by Love

Do you think they taught there Children about God Seventh-day Rest, Don’t we as parents Teach our Children things that are importance for them to learned

So we find that Adam & Eve were giving the Seventh-day rest before they had any Jewish Children.

Back before the Flood men lived for many hundred years and had full capacity of his Brain, there was no need for books. Instructions were handed down from generation to generation with perfection.

After the Flood when men begin to populate the Earth again and not live as long as before, God gave instructions to Moses to Wright in a book so we would not forget what God’s Word say.

Look at Israel on there way to the Promise Land, What happened

 

Gods Holy Sabbath day

Gods Holy Sabbath day

Ex 16:23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. God performs a Miracle by give them food in the desert, but he tells them something not to do, Don’t gather it on the Sabbath

How do we know that the Seventh day is the Sabbath?

Ex:16:26: Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

So accordance to the Bible what day is Sabbath

Exodus 20
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Now you might say I know that verse that is one of the Ten Commandments but there is something missing, that is correct it starts with the Word Remember..

8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

God is saying go back to Genesis and Remember what I told your first Parents to do keep holy the Seventh-day of the week

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

The 4th commandment states two things very clear Who God is & What God did,
—————————-

So we find that the Sabbath is not a Jewish thing, it goes all the way back to Gneisses. What about Food or Meat is that Jewish

What Food did God give man to eat?

Genesis 1
29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30: And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

God did not say anything about eating meat here, He said every green herb shell be for meat. God gave only Veggie here

So when did man start eating Flesh

Genesis 7

1: And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
2: Of every clean beast; Hold on Time out What book are we in, Genesis Chapter 7 right; before there were a Jewish Nation right, Was Noah a Jew ?

So God way back in the Beginning made Distinction between Clean and Un-clean Animals

thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Do you see that 7 of the Clean 2 of the un-clean
3: Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

Was Noah Jewish?

No more then I am, Did God make a distinction between Clean and un-clean animals back in Noah time before there were Jewish people living on the Earth, yes He did.

5: And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
6: And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7: And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8: Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9: There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

Why did Noah need more of the clean animals then that of the un-clean

After the Flood all Vegetation was distorted, Man was allowed to eat only the Clean Animals and also to use them for sacrifice to atone for his sins.

Genesis 8
20: And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Noah took of the clean animals and made an offering unto the Load, the others he used for food for him self and his family.

If Noah would have used any of the un-clean animals, what would have happen to them, Extinction? They would not have made it into our days.

Are we told in the New Testament that it is now OK to eat the Unclean Animals

Remember the Bible must be studied how

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

If the Bible does not agree with your interpretation it is because there is something wrong with your interpretation not the Bible

The Bible must agree Old Testament and New together if it does not go back and re-study again.

If God did not allow the Unclean to be eating back in Genesis He is not going to change His mind in the book of Act

Let’s look at Act 10
10: And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
11: And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
12: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
13: And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

Do you see that, Look like it is ok to eat anything right. NO….

First ask Does it agree with the rest of the Bible,

You will find the answer is No, so there must be some wrong with how we are reading it.

Sometimes you must read the completed content of the Scripture in order to understand what the God is saying

Read all of Act 10 and you will find that God was showing Peter that not animals; but Men are not common or un-clean

All men are created equal in the eyes of God, the Color of there skin may be different but they all bleed the same red.

Jesus said Think not that I came to Change the Laws

Mt:5:18: 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.

God word from Old to New is still the same nothing has changed. He knows what is best for his children and he wants them to live a better and heather life.

Only as we rest on the day God gave as rest and keep those thing that he told us not to do can we enjoy a better happier life here on this Earth until he comes for those who have put there Faith in His Word.

We do this not to be saved, for no man can save his self

But because we are Saved by his grace we want to show other a better way of living and that is by every word that comes from God

Matthew:4:4: But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

So when I am ask if I am Jewish all I can say is; not by Birth

But I am a Jew by Spirit

Romans 2
28: For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

What ever you do and how ever you Study your Bible never take just one or two Scriptures and try to understand what God is saying.

The Bible must be studied from Genesis to Revelations on ever subject in order to get a clear understanding of what God’s word is saying.

lesson02-12There can be no separation of Old and New Testament.

The Old Testament help us to understand the New Testament

And the New Testament helps us to understand what the Old Testament was saying.

That is the way God made it

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

You Are What You Eat!

Share

Did you ever hear someone say these words to you before?

What do they really mean?

People pigging outAre we to believe we are what we eat, or we eat what we are?

 

I have heard a lot of different sermons on this subject, but my question is this what does the Bible and the Bible only say about food?

 

We hear everyday someone preaching on the Radio or we see them on the TV, and most of the time what they are saying really sounds good. They are even giving Scriptures to back up the opinion that was made.

 

But you know what, “I found that you could take the bible and use a few scriptures and make it say whatever you want it to say”. “Is that not what satin does all the time?”

 

Because we form our own opinion about a subject, or because we were tart a subject in a way that you could never see truth, unless the Holy Spirit is your guide.

 

Well we are going to look at what the Bible say about Food, not what I say or the preacher on the Radio said about it.

 

We will let Gods book speak for itself on the matter.

 

First of all we need some rules:

 

Rule #1

The Bible and the Bible alone will interpret itself, it does not need mans help!

 

Rule #2

If in doubt see rule #1

 

How should we study the word of God?

 

First Let’s have Prayer:

You should never open the word of God with out first asking for his spirit to guide you into all truth

 

If you find something hard to understand you should never give up and except what the world said about it, keep searching till you understand the meaning.  

 

We are going to jump in head first by looking at the Book of Leviticus:

 

I will be using a lot of Scripture today and it may not be possible for you to keep up, so if you like I will make available free of charge to anyone a copy of this sermon.

Leviticus 11

1: And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

2: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

 

Here we have God saying to Moses, I am going to show you something Moses if you want to live a better life and a longer life, do what I tell you. There are beasts I have created that are ok to eat and there are beasts that are not ok to eat.

 

I am going to show you that there is a different between them.

 

3: Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

 

No need to be a professor to understand what that just said, right. God did say that what is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud among the beasts (Mammals) are OK to use as food. Is that clear?

 

4: Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

5: And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

Pig6: And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

7: And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud;he is unclean to you.

 

God said that all Mammals as described above are not clean and you should not eat them. Is that clear?

 

Now God goes on to tell Moses the same thing is true of all I created in the Sea 

 

9: These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.

 

10: And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

 

When God said something is an Abomination people need to wake-up a smell the Coffee.

 

What is another word for Abomination, “eyesore, loathe, abhorrence, repulsive, detestation” do you kind of get the picture God was painting about what he thinks of man eating these things.

 

God said Moses I am not finish yet there is more we have to talk about things that fly.

 

13: And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

14: And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;

15: Every raven after his kind;

16: And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,

17: And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

18: And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,

19: And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

20: All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.

 

These are all birds of pray and God said don’t eat them, they are not good for food.

 

21: Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

22: Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

 

I don’t know of anyone standing in line for a grasshopper burger, are better yet a grasshopper burger toped with locust. But God said there were clean and OK to use as food.

 

Matt 3: 4

And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

 

God goes on talking to Moses he said.

 

Leviticus 11:

23: But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.

 God also told Moses, I created a Dog to be man best friend not on his plate for lunch.

 

27: And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

 

42: Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

 

Look good at the next scripture:

Who is telling us this “ Can man change what God said !

44: For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

 

God’s gave these requirements to His people His holy people. Back then God’s holy people were the Jews. Today God’s holy people are His true followers

 Man and his Wife walkingWhat does Paul tell us in 1st Corinthians 6: 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

We are not to believe that our bodies are ours to do what we please, our body belongs to God and they are giving to us for a short time here on Earth.

 

45: For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

46: This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:

 

Why do you think God gave us laws? If you know that giving your children too much food with sugar in it will make then sick, what do you tell them. Do you not make rules or Laws of what they can or can’t eat? God is no different; He knows what is good for our bodies and what is bad.

 

47: To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

 

Are we still to obey these old laws today; this is the big question.

We here a lot of Christian preachers saying that they are out dated, they were for the Jew only, we Christian are not under the law so they don’t apply to us today.

 

Is that Scripturally True:

 

Let’s keep going to find the true answer to the question, remember I am not going to give you my opinion of the subject, I am going to give you all of what the word of God said on the subject and you will draw your own conclusion.

 

There is nothing I dislike more then hearing a preacher read the word of God and then say well it don’t really mean that it mean this, are it was for these people and not us, we are different.

 

Were the Jewish people, Gods holy people?

Careful of what you say now, are we today Gods holy people?

 

What makes the different!

 

They were Gods people then, and we are Gods people now, they were the church then, we are the church now.

 

The only different is the Cross of Jesus. They looked forward to the Cross; we look back at the Cross.

 

Lets doing a little digging here and go back to creation.

 

Does the word Meat mean Flesh food in the Bible? Let’s look at  Genesis: 1: 29: And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 

Does any one need a preacher to understand what we just read? What we read is God gave to man his food, and it was not the beasts’ (animals) of the earth, it was the fruit or meat of the fruit as the Bible calls it.

 

For this reason you will find many Christians who are vegetarian and not meat eaters.

 

The diet of man was altered after Sin entered into the Human family and man became so wicked that God had to make an end. 

 

Genesis 6

5: And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6: And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

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.

 

We are not going into the book of Noah, because of time; let’s just take a look at what happen.

 

We know that God told Noah to build an Ark because he was going to destroy the earth with a flood. God gave Noah the plan for the size of the Ark, why because he knew it would have to hold a pair of all the beasts of the earth.

 

Lets pickup on the story where God is calling the animals and they are going into the Ark.

 

Genesis 6

19: And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

20: Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

 

Let’s dig a little deeper here into what is happing right here.

Genesis 7

Deer and Cow1: And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

2: Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

 

Did we just read that right, did God say Clean beast by sevens and un-clean by two.

Did God make a distinction between what animals were clean and unclean back in the time of Noah?

 

So why do we here men preaching telling us we don’t have to worry about those old Laws, we can eat anything we want, just put a little more gravy on it. It is ok to eat what God said is an abomination 

 

Were those laws for the Jew only and not for us today? Was Noah a Jew?

 

We have the same problem with the Sabbath, God said Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Preachers are saying that was for the Jew not for us, we can worship God on any day we want.

 

But yet we find God resting on the Sabbath in Genesis.

 

Genesis 2

1: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2: And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3: And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested

 

We here preacher saying the Sabbath was for the Jews only, yet we find God gave it to our first parents Adam & Eve, Were they Jewish ?

 

God said Remember the Sabbath day, man said No Forget it, we go to church on Sunday. Who are you going to believe; God or your preacher?

 

God knew that all the vegetation would be destroyed on the earth, and he knew man would need to eat, so he permitted man to eat the clean beasts of Earth.

 

 It was not Gods intended food for man; he did not create our body to consume Flesh food. It was only a substitute after man Sinned.

 

This is the 3rd time we find God lowing the Food standard for man, did you know that.

 

Let’s look at the Facts

 

Genesis 1: 29

 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 

This is the first and best food God gave to Mankind, Is this correct, their more, lets look

 

 

Good food to eat 1Genesis 2: 9

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

 

Did you understand what we just read, in the garden there was a Tree of Life, this with the fruit of other trees was Man Food. The perfect mixture that could keep the bodies God created running forever and ever and ever.

 

Did you know that in each of us God created our bodies to repair themselves. It’s all there inside us; the problem is we no longer have access to the perfect mixture of food that was in Gods plan for man, Why. “SIN”

 

Science today has discovered that the body uses different compounds to aid in repairing itself. It get these compounds by the food we eat, it brakes down the food and absorbs the chemical. Then it uses the chemical in a microscopy way to aid in the repair of cells. But they all agree on one thing. That there is one Chemical Missing and they have no idea what one that one is. Could it be the Fruit we can’t get anymore “the Tree of Life”

 

Look at the next scripture:

 

Genesis 2: 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.

 

So there was a Tree that gave Life, and a Tree that gave Death, would anyone like to guess which Tree man chose.

 

That’s correct we chose Death,

 

So we know the Hi octane food needed for man to live forever was removed because we chose to die rather then live.

 

What did God do next!

 

Genesis 3:

17: And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

18: Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

 

God never intended for man to eat the herb of the field, or vegetables of the earth, that was our choice; guess what happens when you no longer had access to the Food God made for you.

 

Genesis 5: 5

And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

 

Conclusion:

  1. God created hi octane fuel for our body “ Tree of Life and the Fruit of the trees in the garden”. We will call this No# 1 Premium grade Fuel. If your body is running on this is will run forever.

 

  1. God substituted man food after sin interned by taking away the Tree of life and giving him the Vegetables as well as the Fruit of the tree. We will call this No#2 Medium grade Fuel. And man life went from Forever to about 900 years.

 

  1. After the Flood we again find God substituted man food by giving him permission to eat the clean beasts of the Earth. We will call this No#3 Low grade Fuel. And again what happen, man life went from 900 years to 500 to 300 to 200 to 125 to 70 years. Its all in the Bible read it.

 

All I want to do here is give you the facts from the Word of God and not my own opinion

 

Are we what we eat or do we eat what we are.

 

Now I am going to ask you to form your own opinion on this one.

If God gave permission to eat the low-grade #3 fuel “Clean Animal”

 

What would you call the Un-clean Animal; Extreme low grade #4 or #5 Fuel, now you understand why God said don’t eat them they are an abomination to you, “Don’t even touch them”

I hear a lot of good Christian people saying, in the New Testament we are told we can eat anything we want. Well that great my friend but you will never find that Scripture that said you can eat anything unless you take it out of the content it was written in.

 

Why because God’s people are still Gods people today, from Adam to Noah to Moses and the Jews and you and me who by Faith in Jesus are grafted in to the true vine.

 

God gave his Laws to our first Parents, and told there Children 2500 years later to Remember them. 1500 years later he came to this Earth to prove he Loves us and even died showing it.

 

As a Christian I can eat anything I want to eat, but I choose Gods way because I know that he would want me to keep this body running in good condition for as long as possible.

 

1Cor:6:19: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

 

My body is the temple where Gods Holy Spirit lives and I want to put only what God said to put in it. If the so called old laws were good enough for Gods people back then, they are good enough for Gods people now. God does not change and His laws are still binding no matter what man may say. Let the Bible and only the Bible speak, Gods Holy Spirit lead Men to write it and God Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and make clear what God is saying.

 

Most of you know that I had Cancer and it came back 3 times. I fought it with all the radiation and chemo’s, but it did not work. Then the last time I just gave it all to God and because my body was in better health then normal by eating the right foods God stopped the cancer from growing. I still test positive for NPC and my doctors can’t understand how I am still alive 8 years later. Then again most of them know nothing about the correct food that Gad gave to man.

 

STORY:  New Car

If you buy a new can what is the first thing you do, read the owner Manuel right. Why would do you do that?

 

Because when we buy something new we want to know what the Manufacture said about our new car and how to take care of it

The Manuel will tell us the type of Spark Plugs to best use and how often to change Oil and Filters where to put water and where not to put it, and most of all what type of Fuel is best for our New Car to keep it running at Maximum performance and keep all the internal part clean and working good.

 

Now we have a chose to make, we can do what the Manual said to do and keep our New Car in tip top shape, or we can through the Manual away, and put what we want into the car fuel tank, it just that simple.

 

You know it seams like we all start out making the wrong chose at first, look at Adam & Eve. Our first parents made a bad chose, but when they found out, they ask for forgiveness and God forgave them. So it was with our Fathers before us, so it is with us today.

 

When we finally realize that we make some bad mistakes in life all we have to do is say Father please forgive me, and he will. We may have to live with the result of the many bad mistakes we made, and that is understandable. So did our first Parents, but we can change our live and start living for Jesus today

 

I don’t know if this message will make you change your life style or not, or after hearing it what you will do. I pray it was a clear subject on the word of God dealing with what we should or should not eat; only you and God will know the answer to that.

 

The Choice is your!!!

Are you what you eat, or do you eat what you are?

I have changed my life style back to a vegetarian because I don’t like the taste of meat and because I believe God knows what the best things are for me to eat. After all who knows better but the creator.   

Remember God gave these laws to His Holy people, back then they were the Jews, today they are His true follower His true Church.

 

God Bless

In Vain Do They Worship Me!

Share

Matthew: 15:9: But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Picture of the Religous leadersWhat did Jesus mean by saying this to the Great Religious leaders 2000 years ago. For almost 3500 years from the time of Moses the Religious leaders were responsible for the keeping of God holy word and for showing the common people what they need to do. But yet when Jesus came he told the Religious leaders in Mark:7:13: Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

If it was possible for the Religious leaders in Jesus time, to put there traditions before the word of God; could the Religious leaders of our time 2000 years after Jesus came be making the same mistake

We need a deep understanding of what Jesus meth when he said this.

Look at what Paul told the Galatians:1:6: I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Paul was surprised that no sooner then he left false teachers came in behind him teaching something other than the truth and people believed it.

Let’s take a look into the book of Acts:20:29: For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Paul called them grievous wolves, why because they did not care for the flock these false teachers wanted only the power, glory, and money that could be made off the common people by selling them religion.

Search for the true church:

There must be over 2000 religions in our world today and over half of them claim to be Christians, follower of Jesus who claimed to be the son of God. Have you ever wondered why so many different Christian religions, how do you tell which one is the true one, they all claim to be the one true church.

I am a Christian first, and then I am a Seventh-day Adventist Christian last

I am a Bible Believing Christian because I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and want to follow his example. I also believe in every word of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation that it is the word of God.  Teaching us about His love for mankind and how we need to live to show the World that we love God.

I am a Seventh-day Adventist because I believe the Seventh-day Adventist Church teaches the Complete Bible Truth as close as it can be with what light God has let shown in our day and time.
Many Churches clam that they teach the uncompromised word of God. But when it comes to keeping the 4th commandment they all say oh we don’t need to keep that one, it was just for the Jews we keep Sunday as the Christian Sabbath. Problem is that no where in Bible can you find that teaching. Not even the disciples of Jesus kept Sunday all through the New Testament you find them keeping and teaching on the 7th day Sabbath. And what is more interesting it is the only Commandment that God said to Remember and our Religious leaders saying it is OK to forget. Who do you believe God word or mans traditions?

I believe that more Truth is yet to come as we come closer to the End of Time and the light of God word is revealed unto his Children that have kept His word.

Many of good men and woman were lead astray by religion leaders who’s goal were not to teach the Pure Gospel of Jesus Christ but to teach there own version of how they believe it should be at the same time making a very nice living off of believers.

For this way they could hold people in darkness

Let’s take a look at some of the parables Jesus used to warn His believer about false teachings creeping into the Church.

Matthew: 25:
1: Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

What does a Woman represent in the Bible? That is correct a Woman represent a Church, a pure Woman or a virgin would represent Gods Church; and a harlot Woman would represent Satan church. In this story Christ out lines it as virgins so we know he is talking about his church and not the world.

2: And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3: They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5: While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Both the wise and foolish became weary while waiting for the Bridegroom (Jesus) to come, so they slept. But look at what happens next

6: And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7: Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8: And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9: But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

Here my friend is what makes the different, did they all bring enough oil with them. They all had Jesus, they all were Christians, but there was something missing with half of them, the oil. And what does oil represent in the Bible that is correct Gods Holy Spirit

10: And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Christians who are ready will go in with the Bridegroom when he comes; but what about all the rest.

11: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12: But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

I don’t want to hear my Lord say to me I know you not. We need to be studying Gods word everyday we need to be obeying His commandments all ten of them. What did Jesus say in Revelation:14:12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Gods true Church will be the ones keeping His commandments, why because Jesus said in John 14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

lesson03-18We don’t keep His commandment to be saved; we keep them because we are saved. If you love someone doing what they asked you to do is an enjoyment.

When I got married I wonted to do what ever it took to make my wife happy. So when she would ask me to do something I did it with joy. Why because I knew it showed her that I love her and still do after 39 years. When we do what Jesus ask us to do it shows others in the world who we love. So you see doing what someone ask is a way of showing you love them, that is what Jesus was saying.

There are some Churches today that say we don’t need to keep those old Ten Commandments Jesus did away with them on the Cross. Is that what Jesus said or is that someone interpolation, let’s take a look at what Jesus said

Look at 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.

I did not come to do away with but to fulfill all the Law and commandments. These words are coming for the same God who created man and gave man His laws. Jesus said I am not come to do away with my Laws but to fulfill my Laws.

A rich young man came up to Jesus one day and asked this question
Mark: 10:17: Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

What must I do so I can have eternal life: What did Jesus reply to him
19: Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

If Jesus came to do away with the Ten Commandments why would He instruct this young ruler that he needs to keep them.

Let’s go on and see his answer:

20: And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
21: One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
22: And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

What was this young man real problem, Commandment number 1 Look at Exodus 20:
3: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. His money was his God, he was blind to the fact that he was putting his money before God and breaking the very first Commandment.

 

3 AnglesTake a good look now in the book of Revelation and hear what the angle is saying to every creature on Earth, it is called the Everlasting Gospel.

Revelation 14:
6: And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Where in the Bible can we find those same words, in the 4th Commandment. It tells us who God is and what God did. God is the creator God; He made the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars. He spoke the world into existence and then in Genesis 1 He said 31: And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

Right in the very heart of Gods Ten Commandments we find the same words as the angle uses in the Book of Revelations. Go and read them for yourself

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

My friend the Angle in Revelation is pointing man back to his Creator God; and is telling all the Earth to Worship Him and Him only this whole controversy is over one thing, who do you worship. God or Satan

So my question why did Jesus say to the religious leaders 2000 years ago In Vane do they worship me; because He knew as we get nearer to the end of time the religious leaders will again put there traditions above Gods Law. If they hated Him they will hate His true followers that do as He has asked them to do.

Matthew 5:
18: Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

I ask you what should you be doing, what Man said or what Jesus said. Read your Bible and study it and let Gods Holy Spirit lead you into all truth. You can’t trust the religious leaders today any more then you could trust them 2000 years ago.

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

In the judgment many of the great religious leaders today will be standing there on the outside saying Lord look at all we done for you have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works yes even miracles. But what does the Bible say Jesus will answer them. I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

These men knew the truth and refused to preach it because it was not the popular thing to do, it did not bring in the large groups of people that they needed to keep them living in there beautiful homes and churches. That is what will make the different between Gods true people. Who are you worshiping, who are you following.

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

I hope as you read this sermon that you study your Bible and see that no where did Jesus do away with any of His Ten Commandments. They are still there and still to be obeyed as on the very first day God gave them to Moses. And on the 4th He told Moses Remember, Remember what I did back in creation how it was I who created this World and all the things in it and it was I who created Man and gave him My Sabbath to be a day that we both will be together

The Ten Commandments are the very character of God Himself, in them He is showing us what He is like; He is a God of love, mercy, passion, and a God Justice.

In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. In the garden God gave one little test to our first parents, He said you may eat freely of every tree in the garden except this one tree. It was a simple test of obeying what God said.

Along comes Satan and says to man oh you are not going to surely die. Who do you believe; you see the different it makes in doing what God said to do. Again God is giving man one little test of who will you obey. Jesus said in John:14:15: If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John:14:23: 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.

Just remember we don’t keep His commandment to be saved; we keep them because we are saved by His grace and we show that we love Him by doing the things He said to do. Keeping His Law keeping His Commandments, the ones He wrote on stone with His own finger.

Matthew:12:8: For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

Mark:2:28: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Luke:6:5: And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

In three of the four Gospels you will find Jesus telling us what day He is Lord of, He is Lord of the Sabbath day.

John a disciple of Jesus was witting the book of Revelations almost 50 years after the resurrection of Jesus. Read Revelations:1:10: I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet. What day was John in the spirit, the day that Jesus called Himself Lord of; the Sabbath Day.

lesson07-16

Friend do you love Jesus enough to do what He told you to do; don’t listen to anyone who is telling you different then what Jesus said. You want to show the world you love Jesus then do it His way and not the world’s way. Is God particular in what He says, you bet to know it. That is why He wrote the Ten Commandments Himself so no one could say oh those old Laws we don’t need them anymore.

God wrote them and on the 4th one He said Remember, don’t let anyone tell you to forget something that God told you to Remember.

God Bless

It will never Happen

Share

Luke 17: 26: And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

 

Have you ever heard someone say!   Don’t worry that will never happen

 

And the very next day there it is right in front of your face. And then you say to them I though you say this could never happen? and they look back at you and say “Well it not suppose to happen!

 

Our world today is a different place then it was just 100 years ago,

 

Some of you sitting here today can say yes that is true. I can’t say that because I was not here 100 years ago. But I was here 50 years ago and I tell you our world is a different place then it was just 50 years ago…so what happened?

 

I hear people saying things like what is going on; is the world coming to its end…..

 

When you say the end what does that mean?

 

Well most of the time it is the way we say the last part, its over, There is no more!

 

Well I am happy to say that with God the end mean just the beginning. For you see it is the end of sin but the beginning of life.

 

The 6000 thousand year old controversy over sin will soon be over and all who have put their trust in Jesus as their savior will live forever with him in a paradise home that he has created for all of his children

 

When you look all around and see so many things occurrence, one right after the other it really makes you wonder what’s Next!

 

Well let see what is in God’s word, and let him who is the Creator tell us what is next !

 

Let us Pray!

************************************************************************

History has always repeats itself; it is like an old broken record that is played over and over again.

 

So if we are going to try and find out what is going to happen next we must first go to the passed and see what happened before, in order to know what will happen now.

 

Our God is not a God of confusion but a God of perfect order; let’s go to the Book of Genesis for starters.

 imagesCA07BFOU

Genesis 6:

5: And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6: And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

 

Things must have been really bad for God to want to destroy all of his creation. For sin had filled the hold world and it had corrupted everyone, everyone except Noah, he like Faithful Job stood alone with only his Faith and integrity in the God of his Creation.

 

Now I want you to imagine for just a moment God telling you something like this

 

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.

 

I think I would be about as dumb founded as I could. Lord you are going to do what? Destroy everything what precisely do you have in mind when you say that. 

12: And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

 

What a sad day it must have been for God to look at the world he had just created about 1,400 hundred years before and see the corruption sin had caused. How the un-falling worlds must have also looked in dismay at those who rebelled against such a loving Creator.

 

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

14: Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

Would it sock you, would you say well it’s about time, what would you do?

God told me to build a really big boat and get in it, so I will be safe.

17: And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

 

If you were Noah what do you think you would be doing?

 

Obeying right!

 

I want us all to look at what God said in Genesis 6: 8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

 

God knows each of us by Name, there is nothing that happens by chance. It is either God’s will that it happened or God removed his protection from us because of sin and lets us have our own way. And the natural result of sin is the destruction of a person life.

 

Luke 17:

26: And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

27: They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

 

Almost 4,500 years ago God told Noah that the End was coming, he told Noah to build a boat a really BIG boat to hold all living creatures.

 

Noah himself did not know what a flood was he too had never seen a flood. But by Faith in God he knew if God said it, it was going to happen..

 

God loves and forbearing with mankind to repent and turn from sin and his sinful ways had reached its limit. The yard stick of sin was at last to its full mark about to run over.

 

No longer could God hold back the storm that was coming upon this world. Mankind had rejected God as there lord and Savior and in his place made gods for themselves of the wood, stones and the metal.

 

While faithful men preached to this world about the creator God who in 6 days made the heavens and earth, by the word of his power and rested on the seventh-day.

 

 Who created our firth parents that had just died no more then a few hundred years earlier, even with the Garden of Eden still in mans sight, mankind rejected the God of his Creation.

 

It was not multitudes or majorities that were on the side of right. The world was arrayed against God’s justice and His laws, and Noah was regarded as a fanatic and a fool.

 

Satan, when tempting Eve to disobey God, said to her, “Ye shall not surely die.” Genesis 3: 4. Great men, worldly, honored, and wise men, repeated the same. “The threatening of God,” they said, “are for the purpose of intimidating, and will never be happen..

 

You need not be alarmed. Such an event as the destruction of the world by the God who made it, and the punishment of the beings He has created, will never take place.

 

Be at peace; fear not. Noah is an extremist.”

 lesson09-07

The world made merry at the folly of the deluded old man. Instead of humbling the heart before God, they continued their disobedience and wickedness, the same as though God had not spoken to them through His servant. 

 

     But Noah stood like a rock amid the tempest. Surrounded by popular contempt and ridicule, he distinguished himself by his holy integrity and unwavering faithfulness.

 

A power attended his words, for it was the voice of God to man through His servant. Connection with God made him strong in the strength of infinite power.

 

For one hundred and twenty years his solemn voice fell upon the ears of that generation in regard to events, which, so far as human wisdom could judge, were impossible. 

 

     The world before the Flood reasoned that for centuries the laws of nature had been fixed. The recurring seasons had come in their order. Heretofore rain had never fallen; the earth had been watered by a mist or dew every morning.

 

The rivers had never yet passed their boundaries, but had borne their waters safely to the sea.

 

Fixed decrees had kept the waters from overflowing their banks. But these reasoners did not recognize the hand of Him who had stayed the waters, saying, “Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further.” Job 38:11. 

     As time passed on, with no apparent change in nature, men whose hearts had at times trembled with fear, began to be reassured.

 

They reasoned, as many reason now, that nature is above the God of nature, and that her laws are so firmly established that God Himself could not change them.

 

Reasoning that if the message of Noah were correct, nature would be turned out of her course, they made that message, in the minds of the world, a delusion–a grand deception.

 

They manifested their contempt for the warning of God by doing just as they had done before the warning was given.

 

They continued their festivities and their gluttonous feasts; they ate and drank, planted and builded, laying their plans in reference to advantages they hoped to gain in the future; and they went to greater lengths in wickedness, and in defiant disregard of God’s requirements, to testify that they had no fear of the Infinite One.

 

They asserted that if there were any truth in what Noah had said, the men of renown–the wise, the prudent, the great men the great Religious leaders –would understand the matter. 

 

     Had the antediluvians believed the warning, and repented of their evil deeds, the Lord would have turned aside His wrath, as He afterward did from Nineveh.

 

But by their obstinate resistance to the reproofs of conscience and the warnings of God’s prophet, that generation filled up the measure of their iniquity, and became ripe for destruction. 

 

The leave walls of this sinful world could only withstand so much sin before breaking the banks and flooding the world.

 

Genesis 7:

1: And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

 

Our world is again becoming ripe for the destruction that destroyed the antediluvians world. But this time not by water but by Fire, men again will turn from truth to believe a lie

 

I have no idea how much Faith Noah had, but I tell you this every time Noah drove a nail into the Ark his Faith grew. It is today no different with us only as we exercise our faith in Gods power will we be like faithful Noah one nail at a time.

 

Can we trust God? Let’s look at where we are today

 

We are told of a time of trouble that is coming upon this world we live in. A time that we who are God people will not be able to buy or sell, a time when the whole world will hate us and blame us for the problems that this old world will be going through

 

Can you believe the things that are happing in our world today!

 

This world is saying don’t worry; things are going to be just fine there is no need to be alarmed, your government will take care of everything and take care of you.

 

Do you believe that? What is going to happen when you find yourself all alone and the whole world against you?

 

When the day comes and its seam like everyone has turned agents you, even your own Brothers, sisters, Mother, Father, your own Children and husband or Wife. Where will you go what will you do, who will help you.

 

You will not be able to look to man for help, they will be the ones condemning you.

 

Soon very soon there will be a time of trouble that the world has never seen. When God’s people will be persecuted because of what we believe and who we believe in.

The Bible said that we won’t be able to buy or sell, how are we to live! What shell we eat what shell we ware, what shell we drink.

 

Look at how God lead in the pasted and you will see how he will lead in the future

Look at Moses 40 years he lead the children of Israel, did they want for anything

                            So what did they eat ?

Exodus 13:

14: And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

15: And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was.  And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.

 

God gave them what they needed not what they wanted, there is a big different between what we want and what we need. But it all takes Faith; we must learn to walk by faith and faith alone, relying upon God to lead and only upon Him.

 

Those who exercise but little faith now, are in the greatest danger of falling under the power of satanic delusions; and the decree to compel the conscience.

 

Even if they endure the test they will be plunged into deeper distress and anguish in the time of trouble, because they have never made it a habit to trust in God.

 

The lessons of faith which we have neglected now we will be forced to learn under a terrible pressure of discouragement. 

 

     We should now acquaint ourselves with God by proving His promises. Angels record every prayer that is earnest and sincere.

 

We should rather dispense with selfish gratifications, than to neglect communion with God. The deepest poverty, the greatest self-denial, with His approval, is better than riches, honors, ease, and friendship of this world.

 

If we allow our minds to be absorbed by worldly interests, the Lord may give us time by removing from us our idols of gold, and of fertile lands he may even allowed sickness or disease to come in and open the channel of communication again that was lost but only for a time.

 

     The young would not be seduced into sin if they would refuse to enter any path except for that upon which they could ask God’s blessing.

 

 If the messengers who bear the last solemn warning to the world would pray for the blessing of God, not in a cold, listless, lazy manner, but fervently and in faith, as did Jacob, they would find many places where they could say:I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” Genesis 32:30.

 

They would be accounted of heaven as princes, having power to prevail with God and with men. 

 

     The “time of trouble, such as never was,” is soon to open upon us; and we shall need an experience which we do not now possess and which many are too laid-back to obtain. It is often the case that trouble is greater in anticipation than in reality; but this is not true of the crisis before us.

 

The most vivid presentation cannot reach the magnitude of the ordeal. In that time of trial, every soul must stand for himself before God. “Though Noah, Daniel, and Job” were in the land, “as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.” Ezekiel 14:20.

 

So now the Future !

 

We are just in the beginning of the little time of trouble; we are just starting to see strange things that are happing in our world today.

 

It is not going to get better?

Sorry things will only get worse !

 

Will the Lord forget His people in this trying hour?

 

Did He forget faithful Noah when judgments were visited upon the antediluvian world? Did He forget Lot when the fire came down from heaven to consume the cities of the plain?

Did He forget Joseph surrounded by idolaters in Egypt?

Did He forget Elijah when the oath of Jezebel threatened him with the fate of the prophets of Baal?

Did He forget Jeremiah in the dark and dismal pit of his prison house?

Did He forget the three Men in the fiery furnace? or Daniel in the den of lions? 

 

“Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?

 

yea, they may forget, but I will not forget thee.

 

Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands.” Isaiah 49:14-16. The Lord hosts has said: “He that toucheth you toucheth the apple of His eye.” Zechariah 2:8.

     Though enemies may thrust Gods Children into prison, yet the dungeon walls cannot cut off the communication between their souls and Christ.

 

One who sees their every weakness, who is acquainted with every trial, is above all earthly powers; and angels will come to them in lonely cells, bringing light and peace from heaven.

 

The prison will be as a palace; for the rich in faith dwell there, and the gloomy walls will be lighted up with heavenly light as when Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises at midnight in the dungeon. 

 

The people of God will not be free from suffering; but while persecuted and distressed, while they endure hardship and suffer for want of food they will not be left to perish.

 

 The same God who cared for Elijah will not pass by one of His self-sacrificing children. He who numbers the hairs of their head will care for them, and in time of famine they shall be satisfied.

 

While the wicked are dying from hunger and pestilence, angels will shield the righteous and supply their wants.

 

To him that “walketh righteously” is the promise: “Bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.“When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.” Isaiah 33:15, 16; 41:17

 

     “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls;” yet shall they that fear Him “rejoice in the Lord” and joy in the God of their salvation. Habakkuk 3:17, 18. 

 

“The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:

He shall preserve thy soul.” “He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust:

 

His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

 

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” Psalms 121:5-7; 91:3-10.

 

Mother letting Jesus take the wheelGod will be there as he is here with his people now, to guide, to lead, to save.

We have nothing to fear but that we forget how God has lead in the passed he will again lead in the future.

Put your trust your faith in him he will not leave you.

 

God Bless
