Scrooge, Santa and the Savior?

.












HOW? Before UNBELIEVING AHAZ God points out His Son: “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His name IMMANUEL [God with us]” (Isaiah 7:14). “For unto us a CHILD IS BORN, unto us a SON IS GIVEN: and the government shall be upon HIS SHOULDER: and HIS NAME shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). JOSEPH BELIEVED: “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name IMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, GOD WITH US” (Matthew 1:23). YOU CAN BELIEVE: “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” (John 3:16).

WHO ME? YES YOU! “Verily (positively), I (the Lord Jesus) say unto YOU, He that HEARETH MY WORD, and BELIEVETH on Him that sent Me, hath EVERLASTING LIFE, and shall NOT come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto LIFE” (John 5:24). “For Christ also hath ONCE suffered for sins, the JUST for the UNJUST, that HE might BRING US TO GOD” (1 Peter 3:18). “Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM the LIGHT of the world: he that FOLLOWETH ME shall NOT walk in darkness, but shall have the LIGHT of LIFE” (John 8:12). “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I GIVE unto them ETERNAL LIFE; and they shall never perish neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand” (John 10:27-28). “Then said Jesus to those Jews which BELIEVED ON HIM, if ye continue in MY WORD, then are ye MY disciples indeed; And ye shall know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).

GIFTS which you may or may not give and receive cannot be compared with GOD'S LIFE, LIGHT and TRUTH, all of which are to be found in GOD'S best and greatest GIFT, His UNIQUE SON.

GREETINGS which you may give and receive cannot be compared to God's Word: “Peace I leave with you, MY PEACE I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

GLADNESS you can have if you will rest and rely upon HIS SURE WORD and HIS SAVING WORK on the cross, to bring you into a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the living God; that Christ may dwell in your heart upon your RECEIVING HIM as your personal SAVIOR and LORD. “But as many as received Him, to them gave He the power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on His Name” (John 1:12). Trusting in such a great Savior we can sing:

“JOY TO THE WORLD, THE LORD IS COME!” “COME LET US ADORE HIM, CHRIST THE LORD!” You are invited to COME and WORSHIP HIM with us.

The False Hope of the American Tea Party

With all that is going on today with the horrific spending practices here in America by our “elected and entrenched” leaders, there is much to be greatly concerned about. In our day a minority of Americans still hold onto the conservative values of our founding fathers, who sought to establish a nation under the adherence and practice of willingly subjecting themselves to the liberating absolutes of the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.

As we look at our history (from the civil war unto this very hour) we have seen this ideal - which is rooted in reality - removed and nearly eradicated from EVERY facet of our Judeo/Christian culture and society.

We have witnessed first hand the wasteland that our nation has become - both (socially and fiscally) – by the Lefts lawless and secular vision they have promoted and put forth.

As the godless Left has slowly and consistently FILLED and SATURATED every facet of our government branches with their lawless ideology - which totally contradicts ALL that our founders believed - we have witnessed first hand the wasteland that our nation has become - both (socially and fiscally) – by their lawless and secular vision they have promoted and put forth.

Now here at the end, Americans are either apathetic or frantically panicking to try undo 100 years of secular social engineering, socialistic fiscal polices and the greedy mismanaging of the American tax payers money. Good intentions pave the road to ruin here in the “Land of the FREE” and “Reality has been forsaken and lawlessness and anarchy has been awakened.

Delusional Preachers of this Hour

Countless conservative talk show hosts through out these 50 states are daily trying to sustain the panic stricken masses with optimistic appraisals and fictitious ideas and remedies that can NEVER fix our current decimated fiscal state, let alone our catastrophic social crisis that has exponentially sent our fiscal national debt to the moon. My dear friends, How do you save a steel sinking ship when it is filled with 95% water? The obvious answer… You do not! You abandon ship and hope that the sinking ship does not suck you into its abyss when it goes down to Davy Jones locker. That is where we are today here in America. Either you have the courage and fortitude to face this reality or you do not. The choice is yours, but whatever you choose, NOTHING will stop this ship from sinking! Do NOT deceive yourselves about our day and hour! My friend, NO Tea Party will stop the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from their soon up coming horrific ride (Rev. 6).

Either you have the courage and fortitude to face this reality or you do not. The choice is yours, but whatever you choose, NOTHING will stop this ship from sinking!

Through out this nation, Americans (conservative, moderate and liberal) in their subjective delusional worlds and minds are vainly hoping for the best as our nation’s fiscal house is at the precipice of default and implosion. With blinded minds of ignorance and great faith these believe that we as a nation can remove this consuming exponential behemoth one day and undo 100 years of the horrific consequences of social and fiscal lawlessness.

The Boy with His Finger in the Dike

As we come near to the end of the “Great Experiment”, the Tea Party was founded and started to awaken American to our sobering fiscal realities and sought to hold Washington accountable for their actions. Thank Almighty God for this movement, but sadly and in all reality, this movement - as the little Dutch boy with his finger in the fractured dike - has only slowed down this consuming LEVIATHAN very minutely. Alarmingly, under this cry for accountability by the Tea Party, all goes on in Washington as Washington always does but at an even faster pace. My dear friends, just look at these last 6 years, big Government has morphed into Enormous and Ginormous Government! Even with the countless voices of the Tea Party, Conservative radio, active U.S. citizens and a small group of law makers, ALL goes on as usual. Nothing can stop this U.S. beast from consuming and moving us ever forward to a socialistic state of tyranny and oppression. My Friends, Are we not already there!

Thank God for this movement, but sadly and in all reality, this movement - as the little Dutch boy with his finger in the fractured dike - has only slowed down this consuming LEVIATHAN very minutely.

Americans and those who are active in the Tea Party (we here at the IFB being of those Americans) need to comprehend the REALITY of the hour and know with ALL our hearts that America dream is over. How many Americans today are willingly gullible, naive and delusional about this reality? These cannot see past their noses on this reality. They are imprisoned in a subjective world with NO vision of the ETERNITY that awaits every single one of us (John 3:16-17; Rev. 20:1-3, 11-15; 21:8; 22:11). This is not a fatalistic or “give up” mentality. The REALITY is that the jig is up and innumerable lawless consequences and 5th column foes of our American constitution have entered into the mightily seized Alamo and it is just a matter of precious time before we ALL fall. IT MUST BE my dear friends. To think other wise is to willingly to deceive yourselves!

What to Do?

In these very sobering hours may the realities at hand bring you to the comprehension that bigger forces are at work here in America and in the world in general (Eph. 6:12).

The stage is being set for far greater evils and horrific policies of godless fallen man that will enslave and engulf the entire world (Rev.6-19; 13). Do these biblical observations sound like the ravings of a mad man? Well my friend, they are not! To be wise in this world, one must KNOW the Savior and Creator of this World (John 1:10-12, 3:3-7, 17:17, Rom. 1:16, 1 Cor. 18-31, Heb. 1:2-3). Without Almighty God and His precious Word - which is the ONLY source and key of revelation and light to unlock the subjective, delusional prisonhold of this vain and futile world, there is ABSOLUTELY NO hope

WITHOUT Almighty God’s Word and revelation ALL is a mystery! ALL is unanswerable! ALL is despair! ALL is hopeless!

WITHOUT Almighty God’s Word and revelation ALL is a mystery! ALL is unanswerable! ALL is despair! ALL is hopeless! My friend, do not deceive yourselves with false hopes, false vain ambitions. False saviors, and false Utopian visions that can NEVER come to pass in a sin ravished world (Gal. 1:4). My friend, do the very best that you can in this hour for the critical and fatal condition of our nation, but do NOT place ALL your trust in it my friend, see the BIG picture from Heaven’s ETERNAL perspective and trust Almighty God for the Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!

The Last Great Earthquake of the Day of the Lord!


In light of the massive earthquake and tsunami that ravished the Japanese coastline, its inhabitants and economy, I could not help but think of that catastrophic setting EXPONENTIALLY magnified to global proportions.

In a day predestined by Almighty God coming up in the near future, near the end of the Great Tribulation time period (Rev 6-19), just before the Lord Jesus Christ’s returns to planet earth to destroy the demonically driven and diminished global armies of the Anti Christ (Zech. 12:8-9, Rev. 16:13-16; 19:11-21), a GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE so EXPONENTIALLY unimaginable will ABSOLUTELY ravish the world’s topographical landscape beyond ALL comparison.

Global tsunamis’ will wipe whatever coastal and island populations that have survived this horrendous seven year time period.

So EXPONENTIALLY great will this earthquake be, so EXPONENTIALLY catastrophic, that ALL of the world’s islands and coasts will be forever more removed off of the face of the earth (Rev. 16:18-20). Global tsunamis’ will wipe out whatever coastal and island populations that have survived this horrendous seven year time period (Rev. 6-16). Continental landscapes will be upturned and rivers diverted beyond ALL recognition. The remaining forests, plains and lakes (Rev. 8:7) will be absolutely wiped out, scattered abroad and rent. The GREAT MOUNTAINS of the world (the Himalayas, Appalachian, Andes, and Rocky Mountains etc.) will be brought down to dust and will not be found (Rev. 16:20)! Whatever remains of the world’s once GREAT cities and their inhabitants (Paris, London, Hong Kong, New York, Rome, Moscow, Beijing, New Delhi etc.) will ALL be finally and utterly wiped out and buried beyond all recognition (except Jerusalem "that Great city") (Rev. 16:19). It is - at this time - Almighty God’s way of demonstrating and saying to little finite godless and rebellious man, ENOUGH is ENOUGH (Isa. 24:5-6, Hag 2:6-7, Rev 16)!!!

So EXPONENTIALLY great will this earthquake be, so EXPONENTIALLY catastrophic, that ALL of the world’s islands and coasts will be forever more removed off of the face of the earth.

By this GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE shall EVERY fault line and tectonic plate be move out of its place and will absolutely transform the present continental landscapes as we know them to a wasteland of carnage, destruction and a catastrophic heap. This EXPONENTIAL quake will obliterate all resemblance of this present world and obliterate any works of splendor that mankind has designed and created since the Tower of Babel 4300 years ago (Gen. 11 – Rev. 18). Just as Almighty God used the Genesis flood to obliterate the godless and exponentially violent Enochian pre-flood world’s society and culture (Gen. 4:16-17; 6-7, 2 Peter 2:5; 3:6, 1 John 3:12, Jude 1:10-11) so also shall this EARTHQUAKE wondrously accomplish Almighty God’s will in bringing to naught mankind’s godless achievements and accomplishments– but to far lesser level (Rev. 16:18-20). What is even more sobering and unimaginable then this EXPONENTIAL CATASTROPHIC EARTHQUAKE – which takes place near the end of the Great Tribulation - is that the surviving inhabitants - of this earthquake and hail  bombardment - of the Anti Christ’s 666 global state (Rev. 13) will seek with ALL their godless vindictive being to grope and crawl with ALL of their innate hatred and hardened hearts to war with Almighty God at the Battle of Armageddon (Psalm, 110, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, Rev. 16:21). Oh my friend, How hard can the heart of a created being of Almighty God get towards the RIGHTEOUSNESS and ETERNAL LOVE of ALMIGHTY GOD (John 3:16-17).

These WONDROUS judgments are done not to just judge mankind for their wickedness but to wake up godless man to repent and be saved.

What words can we find or use to even try to begin to describe these EXPONENTIAL calamities and judgments which will be unleashed by Almighty God on rebellious mankind during this time (Isa. 24:5-6, Rev. 6-16). WONDROUS, EXPONENTIAL, STUPENDOUS, AWESOME, MIND BLOWING utterly fail to describe what Almighty God will do unto the godless inventions and rebellion of unregenerate and hard hearted man (Rom. 1:18-32). These WONDROUS judgments are done not to just judge mankind for their wickedness but to wake up godless man to repent and be saved (return and be delivered) to their Creator and Savior (John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:4, 1 Peter 3:20, 2 Peter 3:9, 15).

The awesome and horrific footage of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami is just but a finite picture of what will be on a global scale just before Christ returns to destroy the Anti Christ’s remaining armies at Armageddon (Zech. 12:8-9; 14:2-4, Rev. 16:13-16) Are you ready to stand in His HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS PRESENCE.

The Big Picture and Heart of the Matter

My friend, Almighty God is absolutely RIGHTEOUS and JUST in ALL that He does and allows (Gen. 18:25, Job 34:10, Psalm 119:160, Rom. 9:11, Rev. 15:3; 16:7; 19:2). We my friends are the ones who are in the wrong (Rom.3:23)! We are the ones who have violated and transgressed Almighty God’s ETERNAL laws and moral absolutes (Isa. 24:5-6, Rom. 3:23; 6:23)! We are the ones who have created this delusional godless global world order which rejects and violently shuns the ETERNAL sovereignty and presence of Almighty God our Creator and substituted a lawless delusion to replace Him (Isa. 1:18; 55:6, Rom.1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2:10-12).

"The ETERNAL BIG picture is that we All must give an account to Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS Person"

The ETERNAL BIG picture is that we All must give an account to Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS Person (Rom. 10:2-4, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). This little fallen broken world is but a moment and must answer to ALL ETERNITY. This world is a stage for temporal mankind to display what he will do with the Person of Almighty God and His laws of nature and ETERNAL laws of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

The absence of man’s adherence to the ETERNAL laws of RIGHTEOUSNESS and moral absolutes, have ravished this world’s inhabitants since the fall in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3-6). There is only ONE WAY out from mankind’s destructive nature and depraved paths of fallen humanity (Rom. 7:24-25). That way is found ONLY in the Person of Almighty God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12)

“Who (Jesus) gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father” (Gal. 1:4)

“Who (Jesus) delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver [us];” (2 Cor. 1:10)

The ETERNAL EXPONENTIAL LOVE of Almighty God!

Almighty God in His GREAT ETERNAL EXPONENTIAL LOVE towards mankind sent His Son to rescue us, not just from this fallen world and human nature but from the ETERNAL DAMNATION which is to come.

My friend, I do not know how to say anything more wonderful than that! Will you trust the Lord today as your Savior? You will NEVER EVER EVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
