For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)? One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article. When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master. “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events. Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do. ALL political “news” is narrative.

Great Tribulation: Periods of Time in Revelation VS Claims of Man

HOW DO MEN CHANGE WHAT IS CLEARLY WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE?

HOW DO MEN CHANGE WHAT IS CLEARLY WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE?

Comparing the Bible to what Men Claim

The Book of Revelation is clear about a certain length of end times time period.  It speaks of this time period four times.  That length of time is three and one-half years.  So how has the Modern American Prophecy Industry turned the very clear 3 1/2 years into 7 years (what they claim is the Tribulation, Great Tribulation, etc.)?

It begins by a fairly modern mis-reading of Daniel 9:24-28 and the fashioning of “Daniel’s 70th Week for the Jews”–a teaching and term with which the Christian Church was totally unfamiliar UNTIL our own apostate time. This “unfinished 7-years [week] of Daniel” is added onto the end times and–voila! We have a”7-year Tribulation!”

One suspects the manufactured arguments of the “When is the rapture?” exist largely to set this 7-year fraud into the consciousness of pew-sitters.  It doesn’t matter what unbiblical arguments are presented to this make-believe “question” [The plain answer is in Matthew 24 and Revelation 14.], ALL of the rapture timing arguments present a seven-year tribulation.

Satan has worked for a few hundred years to carefully construct his version of the end times.  This is so apostates and unsaved church-goers can follow along at home with a fictitious version of end times events.

Why study God’s Word when so many others have conveniently provided a handy chart of the end times?

“And it has pictures and is in four colors too!”

Because they are deceived, they will not question the devil’s end times time table he has considerately constructed for their benefit.

To make sure that the public has the deception hook set deep in their mouths, Hal Lindsay’s 1970’s best-seller The Late Great Planet Earth [28+ million copies and a movie], and the 1990’s Left Behind series [65+ million copies and four movies] dished up a seven-year tribulation (among their many, many other deceptions.)

  1. 1260 days (3 1/2 years) -+ The two witnesses shall prophesy.And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
    Revelation 11:3
  2. 1260 days (3 1/2 years) – Woman is sustained in the wilderness.“And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”
    Revelation 12:5-6
  3. Time, times and half a time (3 1/2 years) – Woman is nourished in the wilderness.“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
    Revelation 12:14
  4. Forty and two months (3 1/2 years) – Power is given to the beast to continue.“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months”
    Revelation 13:5
  5.  In addition, there are three verses in Daniel which refer to time, times and a dividing of time (3 1/2 years). Various writers, including Lindsay and the Left Behind crew, have added the verses from Daniel into their tales of “Daniel’s 70th week.”

Why would men change the clear meaning of Revelation’s three-and-one-half years into seven years?

One suspects it has to do with the following.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “
John 8:44

IF one doesn’t know where he is, one can’t know where he’s going.

Enduring Faith

Enduring Faith

ENDURING FAITH

Jesus asked this rhetorical question in Luke chapter 18:

…”Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”  Luke 18:8

Why would Jesus Christ ask this question about faith?  Jesus asked this question right after describing His return to earth and the general tenor of the times before His return.  He refers to Noah and Lot when describing the activities and heart interests of the human race prior to His return to illustrate that mankind will not be thinking about His return and the sure judgment they will experience.

26 “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:  27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.  28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot:  They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, the built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.  30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”   Luke 17:26-30

It is noteworthy to consider that just a very few people were saved when God sent the flood upon the world in the days of Noah and rained fire and brimstone upon Sodom and Gomorrah.  The days will be spent in mundane and “normal” human activity without a thought about God or about the condition of the soul, much as we see the situation around us today, keeping in mind that this also applies to those who are religious.

Jesus goes on to give two parables after this warning about His return, one before the question we are considering and one following.  I don’t want to get into the details of either parable, but I do want to make the point that there will be severe persecution of believers before the return of Jesus Christ, and those who belong to Christ acknowledge their sin before an holy and awesome, but merciful God.

6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said.  7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?  8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily.  Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:6-8

9 Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:  10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men-extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.  12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’  13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’  14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”  Luke 18:9-14

Although, this parable doesn’t directly relate to the days before Christ comes, it does relate to faith, and it is this faith Jesus is asking about in Luke 18:8.  We see much of the self-righteousness displayed by religious people who love themselves, but don’t love God or their neighbors.  We see few who humbly call upon God confessing to be sinners. We live in the times described by Paul in

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:  2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than loves of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.  And from such turn away!  2 Timothy 3:1-5


 “[Jesus] refers to Noah and Lot when describing the activities and heart interests of the human race prior to His return to illustrate that mankind will not be thinking about His return and the sure judgment they will experience.”


We see these attitudes and behaviors in churches all around us today!

In the thirteenth chapter of Mark, Jesus Christ again warns about the proliferation of evil before His return.

5 And Jesus, answering them, began to say:  “Take heed that no one deceives you.  6 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many.  7 But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.  8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles.  These are the beginnings of sorrows.  9 But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues.  You will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them.  10 And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.  11 But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak.  But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.  12 Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.  13 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.  But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” Mark 13:5-13

21 “Then if anyone says to you. ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it.  22 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.  23 But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.” Mark 13:21-23

Jesus is specifically warning His followers, those who belong to Him that deception and persecution are going to be rampant before His return.  Jesus definitely spent a great deal of His teaching ministry warning both believers and unbelievers about persecution and deception.

When Jesus Christ began His teaching ministry He taught His disciples and the religious about His kingdom and He also warned them about deceit and deception.

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.  15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  16  will know them by their fruits.  Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?  17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.  21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’  Matthew 7:13-23

So Jesus Himself constantly warned His disciples and others about self-deceit and deception of others.

Deception surrounds us like cellophane covering a package.  It has been ushered in by many but there is a common thread that joins the religiously deceptive together, that is they divorce faith from the Word of God, the Bible.  Friedrich Schleiermacher wrote On Religion in the late 1700’s where he divorced faith from the teaching of the Scriptures, and so it has gone on and on and on.  Today many Christians follow the writings of those who despise the Scriptures.  One such highly esteemed individual, C. S. Lewis, wrote what is considered to be a treatise on the Christian faith, Mere Christianity, without once quoting the Bible.  It seems odd that a “Christian apologist” would defend the Christian faith without reference to the Bible.  This seems particularly strange when we are told in Scriptures:

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  Romans 10:17

Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. James 1:21

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 24 because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.  The grass withers, And its flower falls away, 25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”  Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.  1 Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.  1 Peter 1:22-2:3

16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.  17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory:  “This is My beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.”  18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.  19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.  2 Peter 1:16-21

That Satan has raised up these false teachers who divorce faith from the sure Word of God should cause us all to be very careful about whom we give our allegiance to and to make sure that we heed the warnings of Scripture and the Holy Spirit so we are not led astray and away from biblical faith.

So we can see and understand the urgency of Jesus Christ’s question in Luke chapter 18:

…”Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”  Luke 18:8

Based upon the deceit of the human heart, the deception that we daily imbibe, the persecution of Jesus’ elect, and the evil of the world, is genuine faith even possible?

26 And those who heard it said, “Who then can be saved?”  27 But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”  Luke 18:26-27

And so like the humble tax collector we need to throw ourselves upon the mercy of God pleading for the gift of faith, knowing we deserve only the evil of this world for we also are vile wicked sinners who merit only God’s just judgment and wrath.  We need to beseech God our Father to deliver us from the deception of the devil that lies hidden in the works of false teachers.  We need to plead with our Savior Jesus Christ to bless our hearts with a love of His Word that shuts out the barrage of evil from the world.  We need to implore the Holy Spirit to raise up the truth of God’s Word as a bastion of faith against the wiles and lies of the evil one.  These are the prayers that we must entreaty the Father with due to the wickedness of these times.  Yet, those who continue in the deceit of their hearts and the deception of this world are justly receiving what they have earned and do not realize that the condemnation of God in this life is tempered by His mercy and grace for His elect, but in everlasting judgment there is only fiery wrath and torment with no relief or respite.

46 percent believe that Obama administration has encouraged young illegals to come – Knowing first that most numbers from Corporate Media polls are drawn out of a hat: if this particular number were true, then it would mean that the dumbing down of America has already reached the tipping point.

77.4 million Americans live in pockets of highly-concentrated pockets of poverty – Such an official sounding statistic!  77 point 4 million: it’s the decimal which always lends an air of “This is official business and we’ve really been careful about how we arrived at this phoney number.”

Depressing poll reveals Americans think nation’s best days are behind it – See what six or seven years of relentlessly bad press coverage can do?  After 911–until roughly 2/3rds of the way through 2008, the press was pro-USA and all of the failures were in the “future.”  Then in September 2008, the “financial crisis” signaled a change in how the Corporate Media covered the USA.  It went from “Hey!  We’re America!” to 24/7 “Woe is me!”

The Kingdom of This World

Why then is it necessary for Christ to return to set up His kingdom here upon this earth?  Because this world belongs to Satan, and will until Christ returns physically to destroy the Antichrist, along with his evil kingdom, bind Satan for one thousand years and set up His righteous kingdom upon this earth with its seat of governance located in Jerusalem.

“Jesus Christ described the predominate preoccupation of humanity prior to His return.”

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

An Idiot in Azeroth – An article on the reality game world of Azeroth–which reminded this writer of Astaroth, a Canaanite demon.  Does all of that sound too conspiratorial?

It’s been about a year ago this writer had an informative conversation with a veteran gamer.  The gamer was very helpful on the many demonic characters (sporting, coincidentally, the names of demons) which inhabit popular video games.  This writer supplied the names and the gamer supplied the details and particular games in which the characters appeared.  The gamer appeared to be more surprised than this writer.

ONE BODY: Gnostic Teachings in American Churches Divide the Body of Christ – The Bible is clear: there is one Body, one Spirit, one baptism.  Christ is the head and there is one Body.  Gnosticism attacks Christianity by appealing to the snob in every human.  Gnosticism raises part of the Body above the rest.  Gnosticism always seeks to divide the Body of Christ into several parts. Gnosticism offers extra-biblical doctrines which sound oh-so-close to God’s Word.

The two ways someone can know a doctrine is gnostic. 1- It offers the believer special secret knowledge through experiences, extra-biblical revelation or other sources. 2- It uses this knowledge to achieve its goal: to split the Body of Christ into two parts.  Most often the division fall along the lines of who has the knowledge/experiences/doctrine and those who rely only on the Bible.

MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)?  One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article.  When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master.”  “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events.

Day of the Lord

DAY OF THE LORD:  The visitation of God's judgment on His enemies.

DAY OF THE LORD: The visitation of God’s judgment on His enemies.

Throughout the Scriptures the Day of the Lord refers to the visitation of God’s judgment upon His enemies.  This phrase can refer to local judgment, the judgment of God upon the nations that surround Israel, and even the nation of Israel.  The judgment of God poured out upon select nations during Old Testament times points to and portends the final Day of the Lord, when the Judge of all the earth will judge the world in righteousness and the people with His truth (Psalm 96:13).

There are two passages in the New Testament which describe the Day of the Lord in great detail, but which involve two different time periods.  The first passage found in 1 Thessalonians foretells the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His church and then afterward His just punishment poured out upon the world which embraces Satan and hates God.  The next passage located in 2 Peter prophesies the judgment of God upon the world which rejects the Lord Jesus Christ’s reign upon the earth after being deceived by Satan.  This second Day of the Lord destroys the current creation with fire and ushers in the new heavens and the new earth.  The passages out of 1 Thessalonians and 2 Peter are further elucidated by verses out of Revelation.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,  with the voice of an arch angel, and with the trumpet of God.  And the dead in Christ will rise first.  Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And thus we shall always be with the Lord.  Therefore comfort one another with these words.  But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write you.  For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.  For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.  And they shall not escape.  But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.  You are all sons of light and sons of the day.  We are not of the night nor of darkness…For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Thessalonians 4:14-5:5 & 9 

The wrath of God poured upon the world is detailed in Revelation, relating to the Day of the Lord, the rapture of the church and God’s judgment poured out upon an evil world, specifically in Revelation 19.

6And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia!  For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!  7“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him gory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”  8And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.  9Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”  10And I fell at his feet to worship him.  But he said to me, “See that you do not do that!  I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus.  Worship God!  For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”  11Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse.  And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.  12His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns.  He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.  13He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God.  14And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  15Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.  16And He himself will rule them with a rod of iron.  He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:  KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.  17Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 18that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on the, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”  19And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.  20Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.  These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.  21And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse.  And all the birds were filled with their flesh.  Revelation 19:6-21

These verses reveal to us the first occurrence of the Day of the Lord, we will next look at the second reference to the Day of the Lord.

Peter in Second Peter the third chapter refutes those who reject the coming of our Lord to righteously judge this wicked world.  Peter passes over Christ’s coming in glory to destroy the Antichrist’s demonic kingdom and to set up His millennial kingdom upon this earth and jumps to the final fiery judgment of God upon sinners snared by Satan who reject the benevolent rule of Christ and prefer instead the devilish delights of godless living.  This occurs at the end of Christ’s millennial reign.   Peter links this promise of impending judgment with the outpouring of God’s wrath upon this evil world when He sent His global flood to destroy depraved sinners.  The promise of God’s final judgment and the creation of the new heavens and the new earth are the focus of Peter’s refutation of those who question the imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

For this they willfully forget:  that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.  But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.  Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.  2 Peter 3:5-13 


 “Throughout the Scriptures the Day of the Lord refers to the visitation of God’s judgment upon His enemies.”


This judgment of God upon those who reject His Christ and His righteousness is revealed in Revelation, specifically Revelation 20:1-21:1.

Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished.  But after these things he must be released for a little while.  And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them.  Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands.  And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.  But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished.  This is the first resurrection.  Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection.  Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.  Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, God and Magog, to gather then together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.  They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city.  And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.  The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are.  And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.  Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away.  And there was found no place for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened.  And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.  And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.  The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them.  And they were judged, each one according to his works.  Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.  This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.  Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.  Also there was no more sea.  Revelation 20:1-21:1   

This final judgment of God concludes His promises to the nation of Israel and His promise to set up a new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.   Both instances of the Day of the Lord have to do with God’s judgment upon those who reject His Son Jesus Christ and embrace the enemy, Satan.  According to God’s Word after the great white throne judgment where sinners are judged by their evil deeds chronicled in books, the curse will no longer exist and God will dwell with us.

Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.   God Himself will be with them and be their God.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, or sorrow, nor crying.  There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”  Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”  And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”  And He said to me, “It is done!  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.  I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.  He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”  Revelation 21:2-7  And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.  Revelation 22:3

This is our expectation as those who hold to Jesus Christ and to His Word.  All others can expect only the just judgment of God upon them and they will suffer for eternity in the eternal fire that never is extinguished with the devil and his cohorts.  It is fitting that this study of the ends concludes with the promise that we have of dwelling with God and serving Him for all eternity as His beloved sons and daughters.  As you see the fulfillment of the prophecies of the end times, look up expectantly for your redemptions draws near.  My we serve our God with glad expectation of His gracious redemption as we share His truth to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit and for love of His Son Jesus Christ.  God bless you.

Not Appointed for Wrath

NOT APPOINTED FOR WRATH: What does it mean that believers will escape the wrath of God?

NOT APPOINTED FOR WRATH: What does it mean that believers will escape the wrath of God?

In 1 Thessalonians and 2 Thessalonians Paul, led by the Holy Spirit, teaches about the Second Coming of Christ.  The Lord’s return is addressed from three different aspects.   Paul states without equivocation that Jesus Christ will return and that we will be gathered to Him in 2 Thessalonians when writing to reassure the Thessalonian believers that Christ had not yet returned.

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.  2 Thessalonians 2:1-2

In order to reassure the Thessalonian believers that Christ had not come Paul revealed to them the events that would precede His return.

3Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4who opposes and exaltshimself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.  5Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?  6And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.  7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.  8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.  9The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10and will all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  11And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.   2 Thessalonians 2:3-12

The descent of this world into the willful wicked rejection of the truth and the subsequent adoration and worship of the Antichrist, along with the murderous persecution of those who belong to Jesus Christ, will be the culminating sinfulness  which evokes the wrath of the Lord Jesus Christ upon this disbelieving apostate world.

3We are bound to thank God always for you brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, 4so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure, 5which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer, 6since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, 7and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  9These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.   2 Thessalonians 1:3-10 

This just wrath of God is poured out upon the reprobate condemned because they love the evil one and despise the Lord of glory.  Those who belong to Christ are not appointed to God’s wrath.  We who are alive when the rapture occurs will be caught up with Christ in the air along with those who have died as believers.

15For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.  16For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.  And the dead in Christ will rise first.  17Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write you.  2For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.  3For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.  And they shall not escape.  4But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.  5You are all sons of light and sons of the day.  We are not of the night nor of darkness…9For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Thessalonians 4:14-5:5 & 9

Paul teaches in the letters to the Thessalonians that Jesus Christ will return after the Antichrist is revealed and He will pour out His wrath upon this corrupt world.  He also teaches that we will be gathered to Jesus Christ and that we are not appointed for His wrath.  We will meet the Lord in the air before He comes to pour out His wrath upon this unbelieving world.  We will be with the Lord in heaven during the tribulation that God will send upon this earth as prelude to the destruction of the Antichrist and his kingdom.

When Christ returns, we will return with Him and accompany Him as He pours out His wrath upon this depraved and wicked world.  The church is not mentioned after Revelation chapter three until Christ comes to this earth to judge the wicked.

Judgmentt from the sky

6And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia!  For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!  7“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him gory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”  8And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.  9Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”  10And I fell at his feet to worship him.  But he said to me, “See that you do not do that!  I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus.  Worship God!  For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”  11Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse.  And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.  12His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns.  He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.  13He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God.  14And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  15Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.  16And He himself will rule them with a rod of iron.  He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:  KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.  17Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 18that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on the, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”  19And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.  20Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.  These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.  21And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse.  And all the birds were filled with their flesh.  Revelation 19:6-21

There are those within the church who teach contrary to what the Bible says and they actually speak against those who are waiting for Christ to come.  They twist the Scriptures to their own destruction and lead many astray and ignore the Scriptures which teach us that we will be gathered to Christ before the tribulation which is the beginning of God’s wrath upon an evil world system.  Those who believe that the “church” can usher in the kingdom of God on this earth are on a fool’s errand and are actually working with the enemy, assisting his deceitful schemes. The true heart of belief waits and longs for Christ to return as it endures with patience persecutions and tribulations because of faith in Jesus Christ.

The purpose of Christ’s return is to gather His redeemed to Himself and execute the wrath of God upon this unbelieving world.  When Christ comes in glory with His saints and His mighty angels He will destroy all those who oppose Him and His Father.  We are to await the return of Christ for His own, sharing the gospel with those who don’t know Christ, encouraging one another with love and good works, knowing that Christ will establish His kingdom on this earth for His glory at His return.  May God bless us as we wait for Him.

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
I am not ashamed of the gospel
