Heaven’s Eternal Perspective Will Set You Free!


















To fully comprehend this day and hour in which we are living in, one MUST possess an objective ETERNAL Heavenly Biblical perspective. Unless you are regenerated by the act of faith in Jesus Christ and His saving propitiation for our transgressions (born again), one CANNOT comprehend, yet see the Kingdom of God, let alone the coming Kingdom of Heaven (John 3:1-21). If you reject Christ's saving grace and the Holy Spirit's testimony you will continue to be imprisoned in the delusional fantasy of make believe in your darken mind (2 Thess. 2:9-12).
.
They will continue to be imprisoned in their delusional fantasy of make believe in their darken mind.

As the great American experiment is coming to a horrific conclusion, we remember what our Founding Fathers warned us of when immorality and godlessness reigns. May it be that Americans will look objectivity outside of their subjective world’s confines to a place of absolute security and assurance. That place is none other than the heavenly throne room of Almighty God (Heb. 4:16). Access is ONLY granted by a saving relationship to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:8-9). When one places their trust in Almighty God's saving solution and remedy - in spirit and truth (John 4:24) -, God will save (deliver) that one from the consequences of sin and also from the limited and temporal confines of this fallen world (Rom 5:12-19, 1 Cor. 2:14, Gal 1:4).

Do you know the Lord Jesus as the Bible (i.e., God’s Infallible Word) clearly teaches? May it be so in these last days? The Son has come to set men free from the prison hold of planet earth and deliver them from their sins and trespasses against Almighty God and to fully enjoy Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS (perfection) forever. That is what it is all about. May it be so with you and your heart! You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven
is at hand!

Have Faith In Almighty God!


















The Conqueror of death and the grave is our Refuge in the times of life’s storms and trials! We have nothing to fear!

"I am he [The Lord Jesus Christ] that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death" (Rev. 1:18).

"May we allow Almighty God’s great out working in our lives - for His will and glory - consume our trials, adversities and dilemmas; and not our trials, adversities and dilemmas to consume us!” GFP I.F.
.
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us" (Romans 8:37).

"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith" (1 John 5:4).

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil" (Proverbs 3:5-7).

"Have Faith in God!" (Mark 11:22)

The Truth Shall Make You Free!

















"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32).

The practice (application) of Absolute Truth and Reality are essential for enjoying true freedom. Non-absolutes and partial realities bring but little satisfaction, which is accompanied with great burdens and bondage like battleship chains. Self-willed pride - along with self-willed rejection of Absolutes - always brings about tyranny and oppression in one's life. God sent His Son to awaken us to the absolute realities of time and eternity, and to deliver us from the bondage of self-willed decadence and unhappiness.

The Greek word “know” in this passage means “the possession of knowledge and wisdom that only comes through personal application or experience.”

Having just a theoretical understanding or “head knowledge” of a particular subject is surely limited, but the possession of wisdom and true discernment comes only through the application of knowledge in our lives.

"Absolute truth and reality are essential for enjoying true freedom"

For example, take two people in different situations who are otherwise equal: one an experienced private serving in the military and the other a cadet who has just graduated from West Point. By virtue of his actual experience, the private is in a practical sense wiser than the military cadet from West Point who has only studied the technical aspects of warfare.

The officer who has never been exercised in actual warfare or who has never applied his learning on the battlefield has no comprehension of the realities and first-hand experiences of combat. He has “zero experience" of functioning under hostile conditions and seeing the carnage of the battlefield. He is not battle-tested. He possesses no experience of being focused and steady under intense battlefield conditions. Although this officer may even have a good academic understanding (i.e., “head knowledge”) about war and what it entails, he has NEVER personally experienced war himself.

The private, on the other hand, does have actual combat experience and an appreciable comprehension of the battlefield. He has been exercised many times, and he has experienced first-hand the realities and horrors of war. He has applied his training in combat, which has given him a wisdom and knowledge that cannot be learned in a military academy or even in boot camp.

So it is for the child of Almighty God and the application of His Word. God expects His children (John 1:12) to apply His unchangeable and unfailing Word in their lives, and to experience (know) its benefits and realities. It is only through the application of God’s Word that we gain wisdom and knowledge that cannot be obtained by reading studies written by others such “Days of Praise” daily devotionals. The spiritual wisdom and knowledge that Paul prayed for the Colossians could only be obtained through the working of God and personal application of God’s Word in their lives (Col. 1:3-12). There are no shortcuts or spiritual "hocus-pocus” that can be substituted for these. Our Heavenly Father does not desire His children to live off the life experiences of others, but that we ourselves should taste and see that the Lord is good! (Psalms 34:8; 1 Peter 2:3)

"The truth then possesses us and we are able to speak with authority, passion, boldness, confidence and to give an answer to all who would ask us of the hope that is in us!"

When we apply (know) the truth and reality of God in the “ups and downs” of our lives, and follow the remedies and formulas found in His Word, we enter into a realm of learning that transcends this earth. We enter into the spiritual realm of “higher education.” This "higher education" not only expands our heavenly vision and understanding, but it produces fruit (results) that are absolutely liberating and transforming to the child of Almighty God. The application of God's Absolute Truth sets us free indeed! Free from all worries, cares, fears, doubts, sorrows, earthly boundaries and temporality (time-boundedness), and - most of all - free from the King of all Fears, Death itself (Heb 2:14, 15). Standing by faith in full assurance of hope, these slave-masters no longer have the enslaving tyranny they once possessed over us. The truth then possesses us and we are able to speak with authority, passion, boldness, confidence and to give an answer to all who would ask us of the hope that is in us! (1 Peter 3:15). The Truth (reality) has truly made us free, liberating us to act because of a liberating inward experience!

Our Heavenly Father would have us all to be liberated here in time and to enjoy the wondrous riches that are only found in Christ Jesus His Son (John 8:36). May it be our sole desire today - and the desire of our soul - to have the experiential knowing of the eternal truths of God and to possess this liberating freedom.

Have faith in Almighty God! Be strong and of good courage! Endure hardness (hardship) as a good soldier of Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 2:3). In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (1 Thess. 5:18). Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say rejoice (Philip. 4:4)! May it be so for you, dear reader! You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Why is He Called "the Devil"?

The title "The Devil" was given by Almighty God to Lucifer (the father of lies) because of his offensive slanderous tactics which he manufactured to deal with ETERNAL TRUTH and REALITY which He in FULL LIGHT and REVELATION rebelled against and rejected (John 8:44). The Greek word (devil) literally means to slander, to falsely accuse or to blaspheme one's character in the means of destroying one credibility or good status. As these days are coming to a grand climax called the Tribulation Period, a time of EXPONENTIAL lawlessness and the Day of Almighty God’s wrath, expect the slanderous activity of godless men and women to only intensify at EXPONENTIAL speeds (Matt. 24; 2 Tim. 3:1-7).
.
.There is only One who, no matter how much He is blasphemed and slandered against, will always be vindicated in the endlessness of FOREVER.
,
There is only One who is totally TRUSTWORTHY and TRUE (Titus 1:2; Heb. 6:18). There is only One who is worthy of all praise and honor (Rev. 4:11, 5:9). There is only One who, no matter how much He is blasphemed and slandered against, will always be vindicated in the endlessness of FOREVER (Psalm 110:1, Phil. 2:7-10, Rev. 5). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? In these last days make sure and certain that you truly know the One who in the end will be victorious FOREVERMORE (Dan. 2:44-45, Zech. 14, Rev. 1911:21; 21, 22:1-5).

A DAY TO REMEMBER THEIR SACRIFICE!















WHEN? In at least 10 major wars, in 18+ conflict situations from the 1898 Spanish American War to the Persian Gulf War and even to the present War on Terrorism, which is like no other war.

WHO? More than 1,000,000 lives in the 10 major wars given up for something of greater value, something having a more pressing claim.

WHY? Not to aggressively seek to get or to gain what someone else has, whether it be land, power or wealth (see James 4:1-3), but to DEFEND our nation “and secure the Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America” which is being threatened from within and from without. God's Word opposes internationalism because a one world government opens the door to the total control of a society by a system which cannot and will not do right of and by itself. See Genesis 11:1-9 and Revelation chapters 17-18.

GOD'S WORD teaches that nations are for restraining and maintaining a balance of power among nations for peaceful existence. A nation may be led to want or to possess what belongs to other nations, but they are hindered from such because of other nations. Each nation is able to maintain the God-given privilege of choosing God and His Word, of marriage, of family, of law and order. The nations, consisting of families, have the right to defend their territories.

GEORGE WASHINGTON told his troops: “The time is near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human effort will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army.”

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN: “Liberty will not descend to a people, a people must raise themselves to liberty.” DANIEL WEBSTER: “God grants liberty only to those who love it and are always ready to defend it.” PATRICK HENRY: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?”

PRINCIPLE: When those who know and remember fail to teach and to display to the following generation their rights, responsibilities and privileges, it is only a matter of time until they, by neglect, fail to appreciate and guard the freedoms American men and women have paid for with the loss of their lives and the loss of their limbs (Judges 2:7, 10, 11).

As the nation of Israel had the right to choose life and blessing in their land and lives (Deut. 30:19-20) because of the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ (Isaiah 53; Lev. 16-17), so we can choose Him and the resultant LIFE and BLESSING by an act of our own will: “But as many as received HIM, to them gave HE power to become the sons [children] of God, even to them that believe on His Name.” “He that hath the Son hath LIFE; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” John 1:12; 1 John 5:12.
;
"That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth" President Abraham Lincoln

Memorial Day in Light of Our Day

This Memorial Day we think of those who gave their last full measure on our behalf as Americans; to preserve our freedoms and liberties, which only come from Almighty God (John 8:32, 36, Gal. 1:4, 3:13, 5:1, Titus 2:14). There can NEVER be TRUE liberty without a saving relationship to our Creator and apart from the firm adherence to Almighty God's moral absolutes (Prov. 14:34). Our Founding Fathers knew this to be true and have communicated it to us in their writings and in our nation's birth certificate. Today, America has full well rejected our founder's vision and have squandered the precious shed blood of the brave American soldier. Their shed blood was shed to preserve our nation's founding ideals and to preserve our nation for future generations. Our nation today has overthrown and replaced our Founding Father's vision and has hijacked the supreme sacrifice of the American solider in the pursuit to legalize lawlessness, tyranny, lewdness, perversion, decadence, political correctness, relativism, anti- Judeo/Christian values and anti-Americanism.

For us Americans today, who truly still remember and honor our nation's founding and understand the American soldier's supreme sacrifice in the context of true Americanism, today is a most holy day.

For us Americans today, who truly still remember and honor our nation's founding and understand the American soldier's supreme sacrifice in the context of true Americanism, today is a most holy day. This day is set apart in our hearts and minds to remember our nation's soldier's supreme sacrifice and selflessness and to never forget it, while we have breath in our nose. We are to pass along their remembrance and to teach our children that they would know of their valor, comprehend their sacrifice and NEVER forget.

In light of this Memorial Day I cannot help but take it to the ETERNAL level and think on the SUPREME and ULTIMATE sacrifice on behalf of the whole world, which shall endure FOREVER and transcends the limited confines of time and ETERNITY (Isa. 53, John 1:29, 3:16-17, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Rev. 1:5, 4:9-10).

There is ONLY One who is RIGHTEOUS and GAVE himself for the sins and transgressions of the whole world. That One is the Son of Almighty God Jesus Christ. The Bible states;

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

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" (1 Peter 3:18).

As we see lawlessness abounding in these present days with no end in sight, may your heart be looking to the Savior of mankind. All of our HOPE is found in Him.

Do you have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth as the Bible clearly teaches?

Do YOU have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth as the Bible clearly teaches (John 4:24)? If not, be sure to place your trust in Him today. It is absolutely crucial for your ETERNITY. He will deliver you from ALL of your transgressions against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of Almighty God and the lawlessness of your heart (Jer 17:9). May you place your trust in Him today! You will NEVER be the same!
