UFOs, ET and Alien Civilizations and Invasions: A Long-Running End Times Deception

Aliens, UFOs, ETs: The new endgame for the pagan churches?

Aliens, UFOs, ETs and Alien Civilizations

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
–Matthew 24:4

The Alien/ET/UFO media chatter is one of the longest-running propaganda campaigns: about 70 years in total involving entertainment, news, business, government, science, education, popular culture.

In short, every tool at the command of the mystery of iniquity has been used in this important end times deception.

Where in the Solar System is it Possible for Alien Life?

Alien life, ETs and UFOs are VERY important Corporate Media themes. It’s very important for the mystery of iniquity to indoctrinate mankind on these end times deceptions. As a necessary precursor to these deceptions are the foundational lies concerning “outer space.

Which is why Big Media, Big Government, Big Entertainment, Big Science and all parts of the mystery of iniquity have churned out a steady, never-ending stream of information on aliens since the late 1940s.

Humanity and sanity in space – More fables about space, space travel and WHAT IFs.

One trick the Corporate Media uses to great effect: when a movie is released (The Martian), someone in the media writes AS IF the movie were a true story.

In this way, the media tempts readers to thoughtfully consider speculation and daydreams AS IF THEY WERE REALITY.

IF aliens and UFOs are such an important part of the end times deception (they are), then they have to come from somewhere.

And so, endless stories are manufactured about alien civilizations, alien societies, alien planets, alien invasions, whatever.

ENTERTAINING END TIMES FABLES

ENTERTAINING END TIMES FABLES

Did Astronomers Find Evidence of an Alien Civilization? (Probably Not. But Still Cool.) – Every day brings more chatter about ET and alien civilizations.

And the talk is coming from government, from the Corporate Media and from science.

So basically, it’s all coming from the same place.

Astronomers May Have Found Evidence of Aliens In Our Galaxy! – This media piece is a bit more enthusiastic.

Citizen scientists catch cloud of comets orbiting distant star – This throws a bit of cold water on the previous story. But it uses an old propaganda trick: it “debunks” one lie using another.

IF the reader is wondering “WHY would such a long-term coordinated effort be used to deceive,” refer to THREAT FROM ABOVE: Space Weapons and Armageddon.

HAS the reader fallen under the spell of the alien tall tale tellers?

IS the reader watching for the return of ET instead of the return of Jesus Christ?

There is still a bit of time to change directions (repent).

“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:

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. ”

The End Times in the Bible: What Next?

What's next?

After every round of the latest man-induced CHAOS!, many naturally are curious about where it all leads.

Ultimately, it all leads to the scene in Revelation 16:13-14,16 and Revelation 19:11-14,19.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 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. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.”

Before we reach this scene, however there will be many plenty of twists and turns which the Bible documents in specific, minute detail.

But modern man (especially the modern American man) does not believe the Bible, so he will settle for whatever line of propaganda the lying Corporate Media offers.

The Book of Revelation (written about 2000 years ago) records the future events in great detail: the nations of the earth uniting into a one-world government; the deceiving of the whole world by the man of sin; the repressive police state crackdown on basic freedoms throughout the whole world; the climax of history when Jesus returns and the armies of the earth gather together to engage him in war.

It’s ironic that as these events unfold, any who take a wait-and-see attitude about salvation will not be able to make a choice at that time.

It will be too late: God is sending a strong delusion so that everyone who did not believe the truth will believe the lies and be damned.

“because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

“Well, I don’t know if I believe the Bible, but I’ll wait and see how this all works out first.”

But it doesn’t work that way: by then, it will be too late.

SO: what will happen in the meantime, BEFORE those climactic events?

There will be more CHAOS!: Paris is only the latest episode. There’s much more planned and according to the Bible, the chaos is a certainty.

Future episodes will be worse and closer to home.

Want to know where we’re headed but willing to settle for a more secular account?

As we’ve advised for the last six or seven years: find yourself a good history of pre-World War II Germany.  That seems to be the model for many of the most repressive, most inhuman features of what’s coming (as well as some of what’s already happened to date).

And like in Germany, when the Nazis were coming to power, everything will be perfectly legal.

AND it will be done in the name of “safety” or “making the country great again.”

AND like the Nazis, there will be a good, healthy dose of FEAR! to make the loss of liberty easier to swallow.

When the powers of darkness want to accomplish something, they always include FEAR! and plenty of CHAOS!

Terror, Chaos, Panic, Fear: What’s Ahead for Unbelievers in the End Times

It will be at that point (in the aftermath of the fear and chaos) where the reader will be able to easily spot the mystery of iniquity‘s puppets. They will be the ones in the media crying “Quick! Do something! Don’t stand around thinking about!  Do it NOW!  Right NOW! We have to act today NOT tomorrow!  Tomorrow’s too late!”

People are SO much easier to herd when they are scared.

This is where we’re headed, though most will not believe it.

In fact, the Bible says that man will not believe it WHILE IT IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING. Instead of repenting and asking God for mercy, man will curse and blaspheme the Most High.

“And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”
Revelation 16:9

“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
Revelation 9:21

“And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”
Revelation 16:11

Are you prepared?

Apocalypse: End Times Only Bad for God’s Enemies

END TIMES DESTRUCTION: Only for the wicked and the lost.

END TIMES DESTRUCTION: Only for the wicked and the lost.

“God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.”
Nahum 1:2

Whenever war, financial collapse or any other catastrophic event looms on the horizon, people become very uneasy.

Apocalypse.

Armageddon.

End of days.

Last days.

End times.

A great many believe the end times are all gloom and doom.

Especially the ‘doom’ part.

And the Bible’s many, many descriptions of the end times are top-heavy with descriptions of the long-awaited (by believers) judgments of God upon a wicked and unbelieving world.

“For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”
Isaiah 13:10-11

So that’s the gist of it all: the end times are a time for the comeuppance of the wicked, sinful and lost.

For believers, the end times are a times of justice and final rewards.

The unbelieving world will be judged. In fact, all of the world (except a few) will be judged.

“…and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”
1 John 5:19

The media, the churches, the entertainment industry and the prophecy-mongers ALL promote the idea that the end times mean destruction and doom; a time to be afraid.

And all of that is true: IF one is not saved.

IN FACT, wicked and deceived men will use fear to help herd the lost into their proper end times places.

But make no mistake: there will be destruction.

And the destruction will come on a day when people are just “trying to live their lives.”

“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 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. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”
Luke 17:26-30

For the wicked and lost, the end times ARE a time of destruction and woe which comes upon the earth without warning (other than the last 4000 years of God warning the world through His Word).

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
1 Thessalonians 5:3

The times are so bad, wicked men howl when judgment (which they were deceitfully convinced would NEVER happen) finally arrives.

“Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.”
Isaiah 13:6

And really, that is what it all comes down to: IF one is a believer, one has to face the perils of deceived men and their schemes.

And there will be perils: the Bible speaks of believers who lay down their lives for the testimony of Jesus. However, if one lays down their life for Jesus, they will be promoted out of this dying world and into a sure eternity.

BUT, IF one is a non-believer, one must not only face the perils of men (evil men often do not keep their word), BUT one must also face a sure eternity judged by a just and angry God.

EVEN (perhaps ESPECIALLY) if one does not believe what God’s Word declares must come to pass.

“And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.”
Psalm 9:8

Are you a mocker and scoffer?

Are you concerned about the end times?

You don’t have to be.

Don’t gamble your eternity on the deceived words of men.

There’s yet still time.

POLL: Americans feeling optimistic for 2015 – Excuse me, this is at least the fourth article over the last two days on the theme of “Hey! It’s America!  Let the Good Times Roll!”  Perhaps it’s just this writer, but the extreme optimism lately displayed in the Corporate Media has gone unobserved in real life. Yes, gasoline prices have temporarily retreated. Yet, how many Americans would have celebrated $2.30/gallon prices just seven years ago?

Gasoline prices will roar back with a vengeance soon enough to $5/gallon. Good-paying jobs continue to disappear while other traditional industry jobs (coal, power, natural gas) are threatened. Yes, Americans have lots of retirements and savings but, as the Depression showed, those could soon enough disappear overnight.

These happy-talk articles are reminiscent of Soviet-style economic propaganda.  People would stand in long lines for a roll of toilet paper while the Soviet papers proclaimed such things as “Record economic activity!”

The Russian people were not fooled.  One suspects neither will Americans.

Doomsday Guide – When writing about the prophetic, there is a paradox.  Many claim they want to know what the end times events will be.

BUT these same people do not want to believe the only source of truth: the Bible.  Because so much of what the Bible says make people uncomfortable, they search for those who will lie to them.  And there is no end to those who will lie to them.  America is full of such men and women.

That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:”

So, here’s a list of deceptive links to websites which claim to give the lowdown on the future.

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.  Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do.

The Corporate Media

What is Media Mush?


 

Why Liberals should fear the Supreme Court of 2015 – Change “liberals” to “all Americans” and the headline would be correct.

The “lame duck” label doesn’t fit Obama – The Corporate Media reinforces the narrative of the lame duck at every opportunity.  The linked piece is one such example. Anything to convince readers that their votes really matter and that there really are two sides squaring off for leadership in Washington–instead of one team (THEM) squaring off against the voters (US).

Charge Some

CHARGE SOME: Paul's instructions about false doctrines in his first epistle to Timothy

CHARGE SOME: Paul’s instructions about false doctrine in his first epistle to Timothy

In his first epistle to Timothy Paul instructed Timothy to charge some that they teach no other doctrine in the church that was in Ephesus.  False doctrine was rearing its ugly head through the proliferation of false teaching.  This false doctrine, as is always the case, was in complete contradiction to the good doctrine that God has reserved for us in His Word, the Bible.  After his exhortation to Timothy, Paul then gives examples of false doctrine and its deadly effects.  Paul’s commandment to Timothy to charge some that they teach no other doctrine was rooted in love for the brethren and love for God.

3As I urged you when I went into Macedonia-remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith.  5Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.  8But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully.  1 Timothy 1:3-8

 Those who are in positions of leadership in the church must reject fables which cause disputes to occur between brethren rather than godly mutual edification.  However, in recent history some “Christian” leaders have done the exact opposite.  Their support of three recent films from Hollywood geared towards the “Christian” market reveals their duplicity in the faith.  Each of these films was based upon fables, things that are made up, rather than the truth from the Scriptures.   Some leaders within the “Christian” community promoted the pictures, encouraging “Christians” to pay to see these fallacious films.  They actually joined in making merchandise of believers, sharing in the sins of others, something Paul warned Timothy against.   These fables were not fabricated out of thin air; instead the premise for the films was taken from Scripture.  Like these films, much of what is being promoted within the visible church today takes grains of truth from the Bible and then puffs them up, distorting them with the foolish beliefs, vain ideologies, worldly philosophies and devilish doctrines utilized to distort God’s Word and lead many astray.  This promotion of fables leads to discord and disputes among the body, where faith and love are cast aside, along with the Word of God, and instead fleshly behavior reigns supreme.  Those who try to warn others with the Word of God are castigated and spurned, being labeled haters, when the truth is those who hold to these fables are the dividers and haters, rejecting biblical faith and godly fellowship which centers around Jesus Christ and His Word and results in loving edification.  At the other end of the continuum of false doctrine is the teaching of the law in the place of grace and love found in and through Christ Jesus.

5Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.  8But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9knowing this:  that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,11according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.  1 Timothy 1:5-11

 Trying to know, love and serve God through the observance of the law is impossible.  The law exposes our sin; the law is designed to show us our need for Christ and lead us to Him as we despair of ever being adequate to make ourselves worthy of the love of God and right in His sight.  The law makes us feel guilty and alienated from God.  It is only faith in Jesus Christ that makes us righteous in God’s sight.  He is our righteousness.  Those who try to resort to the law and use it to exhort others to godly living are placing a burden upon the hearts and lives of those they are enslaving with an instrument that is meant to condemn us because of indwelling sin.


 “Those who exhort God’s children with the law are brutalizing them with an impossible obligation that can never be met by man.  Jesus Christ sets us free from the law’s requirements and establishes us in His grace through faith.”


The law is good but we are slaves to sin and incapable of living lives pleasing to God since the law actually excites sin within us because of the depravity of our sin natures.  Those who exhort God’s children with the law are brutalizing them with an impossible obligation that can never be met by man.  Jesus Christ sets us free from the law’s requirements and establishes us in His grace through faith.  He gives us the promised Holy Spirit and as we walk by faith in the power of the Spirit we faithfully please God and are not under the law.  Self-righteousness through observance of the law feeds the flesh and brings condemnation.  Instead walking in the Spirit and walking in love, which is a fruit of the Spirit, brings us out from under the law and then fulfills the heart and intent of the law.  It is necessary to quote numerous Scripture to endorse the biblical doctrine that I have written.

19Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  20Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  Romans 3:19-20

22But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.  23But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.  24Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  25But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.  26For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.  Galatians 3:22-26

4Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another-to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God.  5For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.  6But now that we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.  7What shall we say then?  Is the law sin?  Certainly not!  On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law.  For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet.”  8But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire.  For apart from the law sin was dead.  9I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.  10And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death.  11For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.  12Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.  13Has then what is good become death to me?  Certainly not!  But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.  14For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.  Romans 7:4-14

 1There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.  2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.  3For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin:  He condemned sin the flesh, 4that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.  Romans 8:1-4 

 30But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God-and righteousness and sanctification and redemption-31that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31

 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.  2 Corinthians 5:21

 16I say them:  Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  17For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to on another so that you do not do the things that you wish.  18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.  Galatians 5:16-18

 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.  Galatians 6:8

 8Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.  9For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  10Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.  Romans 13:8-10

 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness, self-control.  Against such there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23

 Legalistic law teaching is practiced within much of the visible church today; the homeschooling movement is especially prone to this error which causes much harm.  Children reared under the tutelage of the law do not learn about the love of God given to them in Christ Jesus.  They do not learn about the grace of God given to them in Christ Jesus.  They serve a hard taskmaster that only grimaces at them and whips them as they fail, and fail they do for the invalid flesh fruitlessly fights to control sin through the law.  Unabated flesh flourishes under legalistic teaching so that all manner of wickedness abounds.  These are those who have a form of godliness but deny its power.  We are to turn away from these false teachers who enslave others by the wrongful use of the law because they have no confidence in the victory over sin that is ours in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:5)

There is an abundance of those who endorse fables, teach legalism and listen to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.  The apostasy within the visible church is deep and wide.  The false doctrines that abound are too numerous to list, but they all originate from the father of lies, Satan.  He deceives and leads astray.  These heresies are whispered in the ears of those who are primed for deception because they do not love the truth, God’s Holy Word, the Bible.  Instead they lust after the latest greatest thing that will cause a sensation and bring them a following.

1Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines o demons, 2speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.  4For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; 5for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.  6If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.  7But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness.  1 Timothy 4:1-7

 Our protection against the onslaught of false teaching is to build ourselves up on our most holy faith by godly living and adherence to the truth, which is the Word of God.  We can protect ourselves from the lies of the enemy by being informed through diligent study of God’s Word and rejection of teaching that doesn’t conform to the godly doctrine of the Scriptures.  That means meticulous study of the Scriptures so that we understand the Word of God by the Holy Spirit and then can reject the lies, reprove the liars, and exhort all with the Holy Scriptures of God, including our own selves.

Those who teach lies reject the words of Jesus Christ and teach doctrine that is contrary to godly living.  Instead their prideful, ignorant false teaching results in disputes, arguments, envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions and useless wranglings.  They are in it for the money and care nothing for Christ or for His precious flock.  This aptly depicts what is happening in many churches today and throughout the “Christian” community.  What a sad and deplorable situation for those who claim to be believers in Jesus Christ.  We must reject these false teachers and remove ourselves from their sphere of influence.

3If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, 4he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.  From such withdraw yourself.  1 Timothy 6:3-5

 Finally false teachers and false brethren falsely profess knowledge and so leave behind the faith they once professed.  This knowledge can come from seminary, theological works, “Christian” seminars and conventions.  This knowledge can come from the scientific community, the popular culture, the New Age, or any other information stream that teaches what is contrary to the Holy Scriptures.  This false knowledge is foolish, rejects the truth and tries to place the ignorance of man over the wisdom of God found in the Bible.  The end result will be the same no matter the source, falling from the faith that was once professed.  Paul exhorts Timothy, and us, guard what is committed to our trust.  Guard the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.  Hold fast to sound doctrine!  Cling to the Word of God!  Cry out to God for His protection and deliverance!  These are perilous times in which we live in.  Truth is condemned as false; and falsehood is elevated as truth.  This is happening within the visible church.  Take care that no man deceives you!  May God’s grace be with us to protect and guide us in these perilous times.

20O Timothy!  Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge-21by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith.  Grace be with you.  Amen.  1 Timothy 6:20-21

God’s Deliverance

GOD'S DELIVERANCE: The remnant was removed from Judah and protected in Babylon

GOD’S DELIVERANCE: The remnant was removed from Judah and protected in Babylon

God works contrary to human nature, contrary to our expectations.  In the book of Jeremiah, Judah is headed towards exile from the Beautiful Land because they had defiled it by their willful idolatry and evil behavior.  Because God is merciful and longsuffering He sent numerous prophets to warn about the coming judgment, but the priests, prophets and people refused to listen and even murdered the true prophets of God.

1In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word from the LORD, saying, 2Thus says the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD’S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD’S house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word: 3If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from his evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings. 4And thou shalt say unto them, Thus says the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you, 5To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened; 6Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth. 7So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD. 8Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die. 9Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of the LORD. 10When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king’s house unto the house of the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the LORD’S house. 11Then spoke the priests and the prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard with your ears. 12Then spoke Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard. 13Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you. 14As for me, behold, I am in your hand: do with me as seems good and meet unto you. 15But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears. 16Then said the princes and all the people unto the priests and to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die: for he hath spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God. 17Then rose up certain of the elders of the land, and spoke to all the assembly of the people, saying, 18Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and spoke to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus says the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest. 19Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him at all to death? did he not fear the LORD, and besought the LORD, and the LORD repented him of the evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus might we procure great evil against our souls.  Jeremiah 26:1-19

Jeremiah, God’s prophet spoke the truth to the inhabitants of Judah, yet they were not willing to listen.  God sent Jeremiah with this pronouncement of judgment with the hope that the people would repent of their evil behavior and return to the Lord.  The majority was incensed at the pronouncement of judgment, but God raised up those who protected Jeremiah reminding the others that a prophet had declared God’s judgment against Judah in the days of Hezekiah and the people had repented.  They warned the angry mob not to murder Jeremiah and bring great evil against their souls.  These princes and elders were the very ones who would be carried captive to Babylon.  This was God’s deliverance for these souls who received the Word of Jeremiah and repented of their sin.  The ones who preferred the heresy of the false prophets and the evil arrogance of the priests were the ones who rejected the Word of the Lord proclaimed to them by the prophet Jeremiah and they would remain in the land of Judah receiving the full retribution of the Lord against their evil idolatrous ways.


“Just as the remnant was removed from Judah and protected in Babylon, the sad reality is that those who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ through faith in Him find their safety and God’s blessings by not assembling with the wicked crowd.”


1The LORD showed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. 2One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad. 3Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. 4Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 5Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.6For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. 7And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart. 8And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus says the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt:9And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. 10And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.  Jeremiah 24:1-10

 As it was in the time of Jeremiah, so it is today.  There are many abroad who proclaim the imaginings of their own hearts and claim to speak for the Lord.  There are many who twist the Scriptures to agree with what they proclaim and lead many astray.  False teachers proliferate within the church asserting the doctrines and vain philosophies of man rather than teaching the glorious Word of God.  Just as the remnant was removed from Judah and protected in Babylon, the sad reality is that those who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ through faith in Him find their safety and God’s blessings by not assembling with the wicked crowd.  Our loyalty is to the Lord Jesus Christ and we must follow Him, not the vainglory of man.

After God reveals to John the end-time apostate church in all of her filthy betrayal of the Lord Jesus Christ and His saints, John hears a voice from heaven warning God’s people to come out of her lest they share in her punishment.

4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.   Revelation 18:4-6

 The corruption of the church is roiling to a climax of complete apostasy for the appearance of the one world religious institution that rejects God, renounces His Christ, repudiates His Word the Bible, resists the Holy Spirit and instead enthralls itself with man’s musings and embraces the folly of sin, as they are led by the devil.  Continuing to support this evil institution is not an option for the children of God, bought by the precious blood of Christ, filled with His Spirit and fed by the Word of the Living God.  We must renounce all the works of the flesh and follow our Savior rejoicing in His grace, mercy and love given to us.  Just as God’s deliverance for those who listened to and obeyed His Word spoken by His prophet Jeremiah seemed contrary to His promises for His people, the deliverance that He has for His children today is to turn away from the apostate church and find fellowship with those who see the deception for what it is, even if that means we turn from the “corporate church body”.  May God bless us in our exile for His glory, praise and honor.

Test Time

TEST TIME

TEST TIME

Those who have studied and prepared themselves well will most likely pass the tests they must take in order to complete a particular course.  In science class I can tell who has and who hasn’t studied for the exams that I give.  Those students who use the study guides, helps, practice midterms, homework and lecture notes can be fairly confident that they will pass the exam.  Those who have neglected to do the homework and apply themselves to study can be fairly confident that they will not pass the exam.  God our Father in Heaven examines our hearts as revealed in the Holy Scriptures; let’s look at those passages to find out how we can pass the tests He uses to reveal the true nature of our hearts.

1 “If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’-which you have not known-‘and let us serve them,’ 3 “you shall not listen to the words of the prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord you God with all your heart and with all your soul.  4 You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.  5 But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has spoken in order to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of bondage, to entice you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk.  So you shall put the evil from your midst.  6 If your brother, the son of our mother, your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers, 7 of the gods of the people which are all around you, near to you or far off from you, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth, 8 you shall not consent to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him or conceal him; 9 but you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people.  10 And you shall stone him with stones until he dies, because he sought to entice you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.  11 So all Israel shall hear and fear, and not again do such wickedness as this among you.  Deuteronomy 13:1-11 

 Did the children of Israel do as they were warned?  Did they reject the messages of false prophets and stone those who would lead them away from the God of heaven and earth?   The prophet Jeremiah describes the spiritual condition of the people of Israel in the waning years of the kingdom of Judah.

16 “Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you.  17 Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?  18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.  19 “Do they provoke Me to anger?” says the Lord.  “Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?”  20 Therefore thus says the Lord God:  “Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place-on man and on beast, on the trees of the field and on the fruit of the ground.  And it will burn and not be quenched.”  Jeremiah 7:16-20

 The northern kingdom, Israel, was already removed from the land due to their gross idolatry.  Now it was the southern kingdom’s turn.  Their rejection of God and embrace of false gods was so complete that Jeremiah was warned away from praying for these reprobate sinners.  Their apostasy was so final that God determined to destroy them and the land that they inhabited.

11 Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.  12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.  1 Corinthians 10:11-12

 This is a timely warning for us today.  Do we love the Lord our God with all our hearts and all our minds so that we turn from the lie and cling to the truth?  Are we being led away from Christ and His sure word to us by the deceitful scheming of wicked workers, by lying signs and wonders?  Are those who are named “men of God”, those serving as leaders in the church, performing the Lord’s work or their own deceptive philandering?   We must take seriously the many admonitions in the New Testament to turn away from false teaching and cling to the Word of God.  We must examine anything that anyone says by the light of the Holy Scriptures through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.  Lying wonders abound leading many into error and apostasy.  As we see the time fast approaching for the return of Jesus Christ the incidence of corrupted preaching and apostate teaching will continue to increase.  The lies the devil tempts us to embrace are preparing the way for the son of perdition, the Antichrist.  If we are not well exercised in the Scriptures, prayer and godly living, standing fast for the faith and rejecting and exposing the lie, then we will fall prey to Satan’s wicked schemes.

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to who we must give account.  14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.  15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.  16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  Hebrews 4:12-16 

 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.  13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.  14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.  Hebrews 5:12-14 


 

“Are we being led away from Christ and His sure word to us by the deceitful scheming of wicked workers, by lying signs and wonders?”


 The way that we battle against the forces of darkness arrayed against us is by knowing the Scriptures so very well and relying upon Jesus Christ so very much that we are well equipped to resist the attack, fend off the attacker, and put the enemy to flight.  We have weapons that are not of this world but are mighty for the tearing down of strongholds and destroying the works of the enemy.

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints- Ephesians 6:10-18 

 As we rely upon the Lord, His Word, His Spirit, and one another, we shall not be deluded by the end time deception that will ultimately carry the world away to destruction.

Sadly, it is apparent that many within the church today are completely unprepared to combat deception, and so they are easily fooled by the latest false teaching and the greatest charlatan that speaks great swelling words of emptiness enticing them to embrace the devil’s deceit and destruction.  These ones who are so completely misled are being prepared for the coming of the Antichrist who will mesmerize them with lying wonders and wicked words leading them to embrace this one as their god.

3 Let 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, 4 who opposes and exalts himself 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.  5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?  6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.  7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.  8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the brightness of His coming.  9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  11  And 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 

 Loving the truth will keep us from this ungodly deception and prove that we are true to our Father in Heaven.  God our Father put the Israelites to the test allowing false prophets with lying wonders to lead them astray in order to prove them as true or false.   During these last days, the Lord God Almighty has allowed the infiltration of His church with fakes and phonies who work by the flesh and give no opportunity to the Spirit to lead God’s people to the springs of living waters that they may be refreshed and strengthened during their pilgrimage.  Instead these false teachers leave them thirsting in a dry and dreary land.  Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior leads us from this darkness to His light and carries us along the way as we resist the work of the enemy and expose him for the vile evil operative that he is.   Our thirsting hearts, resistance to the lie, and love for the truth prove our faith in Christ.  Our humble obedience gives witness to the fact that we are the children of God so that we do not fail the test.  Our stand for Christ gives us preparation to stand against Antichrist.  To God be the glory who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior as we avail ourselves of His resources which He so generously gives us, so that we pass the test and prove that we are the children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

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
