The Greatest Gift Ever Given!























The Greatest Gift that gives the REASON for the SEASON is found in the Person of Christ, the Word become Flesh (John 1:1,2,14)

God’s giving is clearly stated in His Word. Consider John 3:16.

FOR GOD - the greatest Giver

SO LOVED - the greatest degree

THE WORLD - the greatest company

THAT HE GAVE - the greatest sacrifice

HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON - THE GREATEST GIFT

THAT WHOSOEVER - the greatest opportunity

BELIEVETH - the greatest simplicity

IN HIM - the greatest attraction

SHOULD NOT PERISH - the greatest promise

BUT - the greatest difference

HAVE the greatest certainty
.
EVERLASTING LIFE - the greatest possession

Have you received the greatest Christmas gift?

"But as many as received Him (the Lord Jesus), to them gave He the power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on His Name" (John 1:12)

"Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift" (2 Corinthians 9:15)

Almighty God's Events For the End of the World

















In light of today being the "End of the world".... I thought that I would present an outline of Almighty God's prophetic timeline for this world and age which will absolutely be. What has amazed me beyond measure is how many people are caught up in this "Mayan calendar 12/21/2012 end of the world stupidity" and are being dominated by the spirit of superstition, out of control emotions and biblical ignorance (John 3:19-21, 2 Cor. 4:2-4). What is very revealing is that deep down inside the hearts of this darkened fallen world they know that they are on a global collision course with Almighty God and the Day of His wrath is at hand (Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 6-19)! They do not know how to put it all together but one thing is for sure, they know that global doomsday is just around the corner and they cannot escape its convicting weight.

 What is very revealing is that deep down inside this darkened fallen world knows that they are on a global collision course with Almighty God and the Day of His wrath is at hand.

From books to movies to songs the world testifies through these mediums that they know the jig is up. The world has given themselves over to delusion, darkness, superstition and doubt and are void of solutions and answers for the world's present crises. Instead of turning to Almighty God - Who does NOT lie (1 Sam. 15:29, Titus 1:1-2, Heb.6:18) - and His ETERNAL Word for the REAL answers and remedies which are based in ABSOLUTE REALITY, the world would rather - in their darkened estate (John 3:19) - believe in fallen mankind's darken vain prophets of doom like Nostradamus and the likes of the Mayan's who were astounding mass murders and oppressors. How TRUE are the words of the Lord Jesus;

"And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." (John 3:19-21

In ALL things it is Almighty God and His INFALLIBLE Word which are to believed and received in these ever darkened days of deception and darkness. May the Light of Almighty God's precious Word light your path here in time and rightly get you safe to your ETERNAL destination. I can assure you that the end of the world will not be today based on Almighty God's Word and authority.

The events that lead to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ... the institution of the Kingdom of Heaven and the END of this world we have provided in this brief overview to help you to simply understand the prophetic events that WILL soon begin to transpire in our world.


The Rapture

The first event that starts the prophetic ball rolling will be the Rapture of the Church. The Rapture takes place (John 14:3, 1 Cor. 15:50-57,  Thess. 4:16-17, 1 John 3:1-2, Rev. 3:10). Then following the Rapture, believers in Jesus Christ will be judged at the Bema Seat of Christ to prove and test that which each believer has done according to Almighty God's Word in their walk with their Savior here in time (1 Cor. 3:9-15, 2 Cor. 5:10). Note that any believer at the Bema Seat of Christ is ETERNALLY secure (1 Cor. 3:14-15). This time for the church will be a time of rebuke, reward and glory (1 Cor. 3:9-15). Much as a soldier in the army uniform displays the actions and campaigns for his country so will the Bema judgment be for those. Our works done in time in Christ will follow us through all ETERNITY and they reveal not just our Savior's outworking in our lives but our willingness to bring glory to Almighty God (Eph. 2:3-10, 4:13, Rev. 19:6-9). These events will be as a moment since we have stepped out of time and into ETERNITY. As soon as this Bema period is concluded we will come back with Christ at Armageddon spotless and glorious!! (Rev. 19:11-21)

The Seven Year Tribulation

After the Rapture, the 7 year tribulation commences with the confirming of a covenant or signing of the treaty with Israel and many other nations which will is for seven years (thus the seven year tribulation) - Isa. 24:5-6, Dan. 9:27, Matt 24, Rev 6-16. However, in the midst of this seven year covenant the Anti Christ will rise to total global power (Dan. 7:25, Rev. 13) and cause the oblation and sacrifice to cease that Israel has established under the Two Witness (Dan. 9:27, Matt. 24:15-22, Rev. 11:1-7) and then shall the GREAT tribulation begin which will last for the remaining three and one half years (Jer. 30:7-9, Dan. 12:1-7, Rev. 12:13-17, 13:5). This seven year period will conclude with Christ and (our return with Him) - Dan.2:43-44, 7:13-14, Zech.14:1-4, 2 Thess. 2:8, Rev. 19:11-21). It will be at this conclusion that Satan and his host will be cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand years (abyss - Rev. 20:1-3,7) and the anti Christ and the false prophet will be thrown alive into the Lake of Fire (Dan. 7:11, Rev. 19:20). These two lawless and godless beings (anti Christ and false prophet ) are the first fruits of the Lake of Fire and of Almighty God’s ETERNAL judgment which will come on all the lost (Rev. 19:20).

Return and Establishment of Messiah's 1000 Year Kingdom

It will be for 75 days after Christ's (Messiah's) return and the Battle of Armageddon (Dan. 12:11-12) that the surviving unsaved Gentiles and unsaved Jews will be judged (Matt. 25:1-46). These lost and unrepentant individuals after the Goat and Sheep Judgment will be gathered by God's angels and cast into Sheol until the Great White Throne Judgment takes place after the 1000 Kingdom reign of Messiah is over (Matt. 13:30, 40-42, 47-50, Rev. 20:11-15). The 1000 year kingdom will then begin with the Wedding Supper of the Lamb (the Church) with those who are redeemed who have survived the horrifically EXPONENTIAL tribulation period (Isa. 4:3, Dan. 12:11-12, Zech 14:16, Matt. 8:11, 13:30, 40-44, 47-50, 25:31-46, Luke 13:29, Rev. 19:7-9). These saved individuals of all nations, tongues and lands will enter into Messiah's Kingdom and their seed will repopulate the earth for a 1000 years (Matt. 8:11, 25:31-34, Luke 13:29).

Also at the commencement of the Kingdom the 1st resurrection will take place. The redeemed from Adam to the last martyred tribulation saint and they shall live on the earth and receive their RIGHTEOUS resurrected bodies and live with the survivors of the Great Tribulation (Ezek. 30:9, Dan. 12:2, Hosea 3:5, Matt. 8:11, Rev. 20:4,6)! Then the Wedding Supper of the Lamb will begin the 1000 year reign of Christ with EXPONENTIAL joy and gladness and for a 1000 years these individuals will live life to the fullest under the RIGHTEOUS Reign of the Lord Jesus Christ (Isa. 11, Mic. 4:1-4, Zech. 14:16-21, Rev. 19:6-9).

The Conclusion of Messiah's Kingdom 

At the conclusion of the 1000 year reign of the LORD Jesus Christ, very sobering realities will be revealed that have existed in the hearts of men for centuries (Isa. 11:1-10, Zech.14:16-21). Tragically, the majority of OFFSPRING from those redeemed who survived the seven year tribulation and entered the 1000 year Kingdom (Matt 25:34) will rebel against Almighty God's Righteous reign. Guided and agitated by Satan, they will seek to overthrow the Throne of Messiah at Jerusalem and as the number of the sands of the sea they will seek to go against Almighty God and be destroyed. They will despise and rebel against Almighty God in a perfect environment under the rule and reign of the Lord Jesus, which shows the utter depravity of the heart of man (Rev. 20:7-9).

Then the ETERNAL STATE.

Those who have not glorified bodies (the inhabitants of the kingdom who have not been resurrected) at the end of the 1000 year reign will then receive them and they will FOREVER ENJOY Almighty God in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS and Peace (Rev 21-22:15).

The Devil and his angelic hosted then will be cast into the Lake of Fire (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 20:10).

Then also, at the end of time and the 1000 year reign of Christ all the lost who have been waiting in Sheol (Cain – Kingdom age last rebel) will be brought before the GREAT WHITE THRONE for ETERNAL judgment and ETERNAL damnation in the ETERNAL prison of FOREVER… the Lake of Fire (Matt 25:41, Rev.20:11-15)

The Bible ends with the most glorious ETERNAL happy EVER after (Rev. 22:1-5)! All because of the saving grace and mercy of Almighty God and blood the Lamb!!

Hallelujah!!! And To God be the glory for EVER and EVER Amen!!!


The Kingdom of Heaven is athand!

What is Behind Hollywood’s Anti – CHRISTmas Campaign?

It is when one dissects and analyzes Hollywood, especially the engine and money which is behind this base godless secular progressive elitist establishment that we see what really motivates them. Hollywood has been at war with the TRUE Christmas message and continually seeks alternative "Christmas" themes that are anything but "Christmas".

It is no secret that Hollywood personal war on Judeo/Christianity, which includes Christmas. What is most amazing is the number of secular Jews, which are behind this godless machine. These particular sons of Abraham despise the Law of Moses and the God of Abraham (John 8:44). This is not an anti Semitic rant, but is a well known fact through out all Hollywood and the media in general. These secular progressive Jews and Gentile are at constant war with our American heritage and culture. Our land has become one massive ideological battlefield.
.
What is most amazing is the number of secular Jews which are behind this godless machine. These particular sons of Abraham despise the Law of Moses and the God of Abraham.

Hollywood abhors and despises conservative Judeo/Christianity and its values. What horrifies them the most  is what is at the heart of fundamental Judeo/Christianity. The the reality of Almighty God, the Bible, moral absolutes and the reality of accountability to Almighty God in the Day of Judgment send shivers up their spines and they must seek to eradicate this reality to uphold their delusion (Rom. 1:18-32).

But what drives Hollywood absolutely insane more than any other form of Christianity is those who fundamentally believe the Bible and are dogmatic and absolute in their beliefs and position. When it comes to this group, these cannot contain their hatred. These "haters of reality" have produced countless movies that they know will tank at the box office, but their message -reguardless of the cost must get out. In these  movies are found slanderous propaganda against biblical Christianity and those who trust in Almighty God.. Money is no object to these and in their vindictive rage; have wasted countless millions in doing so. Hollywood has indeed put their money where their mouth is.

This endeavor is very personal to them and these seek to indoctrinate American’s with their secular pluralism and relativistic godless perceptions.

As these war with Almighty God and express their unbridled passions and lawless ambitions to America by their licentious and godless movies, these have a goal. This endeavor is very personal to them and these seek to indoctrinate Americans with their secular pluralism and relativistic godless perceptions (Romans 1:18-32).
Since the consummation of the film industry, Hollywood has sought to push the limits of the God ordained boundaries of morality, justice and most of all, the realities of Biblical Christianity. The minority of Hollywood’s godless reprobates of the past – which sought this secularization of America - are now in the mainstream.
.
Today’s Hollywood despises morality, justice and rightness. They have twisted God ordained absolutes seeking to indoctrinate millions of America’s to their godless ideals of secularism and licentious vice. They have sought and have achieved the redefining of godly virtues, morality and peace with godless secular twisted perceptions of their perverted morality. Hollywood has almost single handedly changed the landscape of our U.S. culture - which was founded on Judeo/ Christian values and the fear and reverence to Almighty God. It was in the 60’s when the dam of moral preservation burst and flooded our culture and society with the “new morality” and we have since reaped the horrific whirlwind.

It was in the 60’s when the dam of moral preservation burst and flooded our culture and society with the “new morality” and we have since reaped the horrific whirlwind.

These elite disciples and pawns of Lucifer – the ultimate transgressor of reality and ETERNAL absolutes - are nothing more then his slaves doing his bidding. These disciples of doom are slaves to the works of unrighteousness. They are slaves to their vanity, godlessness and subjective lawless perceptions which is dominated and controlled by their unbridled passions (Ps. 14:1-3, Jude 1:10). These have reaped the godless and horrific consequences of their lawless perceptions and are full of subjective hatred and violence towards any that condemn their actions. What is most laughable is their pursuit of a worldly utopia and visions of peace (Eccl 1:1-3). They hate and despise the very laws and absolutes of time in which one can bring about a temporal peace in this fallen world and they hate and despise the Author of Peace and His followers which testify of the ETERNAL peace which is obtained by the Savior (Isa. 9:6, Eph. 2:4,15, Col. 1:20).

It is the TRUE message of Christmas that Hollywood truly needs to embrace today.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him” (John 3:16-17).
.
Oh that these minions (Hollywood) of the insane despotic king (Lucifer) would turn and seek their Creator! Almighty God calls out in ETERNAL love to all, repent and be delivered from the wrath which is to come (1 Thess. 1:10)!

A Savior is born!
.
All the good intentions of those who celebrate Christmas of the left and the right CANNOT deliver ones soul in the day of wrath. Only the Righteousness of the Lamb, which was born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2, Luke 2:11), crucified at Calvary (Acts 2:36) and rose again to the right hand of Almighty God can perform this impossible task (Ps. 110:1, Acts 2:32-35, Rom. 10:2-4, Rev. 5).
.
This Christmas, who needs the movies? May the realities and ETERNAL truths of Almighty God’s holy Word bless your heart and mind this Christmas season with the precious words… A Savior is born (Luke 2:11)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Slaughter of the Innocents

The horrific shootings in Newtown on Friday bear some similarities to an event which happened two thousand years ago when the jealous monster, King Herod, slew a number of very young children (Matt. 2:16). In both cases very young children were targeted (in the case of the Bethlehem infants, the victims were three years old or younger). Both tragedies took place in very quiet towns where such violence was not the norm. Both killing sprees resulted in excessive grief and sorrow among family members and others: "lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning" (Matt.2:18). Both events shockingly served to illustrate the depths of human depravity, reminding us that the human heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked (Jer. 17:9). Both mass murder events were associated with Christmas, with the Newtown families looking forward to celebrating Christmas and with the Bethlehem event being part and parcel of the sacred record pertaining to the birth of Christ and what happened afterwards.

Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and Lord; and Almighty God the Father laid down His Son's life for us all that we may live FOREVER.

 My dear friends, in light of the 6000 year violent history of fallen mankind Almighty God is ETERNALLY sovereign and has outworked His redemptive program to deliver ALL who are in bondage and from the tyranny of the devil and evil man (John 3:16-17, Acts 10:38, Heb. 2:14-15, Rev. 1:17-18). Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and Lord; and Almighty God the Father laid down His Son's life for us all that we may live FOREVER (John 3:16-17, Rev. 1:5). Almighty God does care and is heart broken and my dear friends has provided an out for all WHO WILL place their trust in His dear Son (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-10, Rev. 1:5). The absolute key to seeking to try to comprehend any evil tragedy and all things is see them from Almighty God's ETERNAL perspective. It is from there that we will find all the answers in TRUTH, REALITY and RIGHTEOUSNESS. When we negligent this perspective and REALITY and remain in unbelief we are left with absolutely no remedies and no hope. My dear friends, there is ALWAYS hope in Almighty God, ALWAYS!

Both events shockingly served to illustrate the depths of human depravity, reminding us that the human heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.

Our sincere abundant heartfelt prayers and thoughts go out to the family members of the victims of the Newtown tragedy. May Almighty God and His precious Word greatly encourage and strengthen your hearts (2 Cor. 1:3). In the most dire of all evils Almighty God is ALWAYS there to bring comfort to your hearts and a peace that transcends and passes all understanding (Isa. 26:3, John 14:27, Eph. 3:16-19, Phil 4:7). May you truly see the ETERNAL in this great evil and have faith in Almighty God and His precious Word; for it is in THESE that will truly set you FREE and provide the heavenly comfort and answers that you truly need (Matt. 19:14, Luke 18:16, John 8:32,36, Rev. 1:17-18).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Does Jesus “Really” Care?

Connecticut Slaughter - A Sign of the Times






















My dear friends, who can fully comprehend and make any sense of the HORRIFIC Newtown Connecticut elementary school massacre of 20 innocent school children and 6 adults that has taken place today. This story has absolutely gripped and moved our nation and my state beyond anything that I can imagine and remember. Columbine and Aurora were horrific in themselves but when a madman massacres young elementary school children, it is beyond anything we can think or imagine. As many I have been glued to the radio all day listening and seeking answers to who, what and why this horrendous event has taken place. This evil being so close to home as a resident of the small state of Connecticut is truly numbing and as a father of 4 children extremely heart broken and sympathetic to the families of these young dear precious children (and adults).

My dear friends, we as a nation have entered into a new type of day which is DOMINATED by moral relativism, secularism, evolutionary logic, violence, callousness, abortion, desensitization, victimization, instant satisfaction required and narcissistic passions which fill the godless immoral spectrum.

My dear friends, we as a nation have entered into a new type of day which is DOMINATED by moral relativism, secularism, evolutionary logic, violence, callousness, abortion, desensitization, victimization, instant satisfaction required and narcissistic passions which fill the godless immoral spectrum. This horrific evil act is just the tip of the iceberg here in secular, progressive Connecticut. Our leaders, media and inhabitants of this progressive and secular state are indeed desperately searching for answers to this horrific event absolutely oblivious to the climate they have created due to their personal war on moral and spiritual absolutes, Almighty God and the Bible (Rom. 1:18-32). What is most tragic is if presented with the answers they would not want to hear them.

Hear me my dear friends,  I am NOT being an opportunist in my evaluation of our day and using this beyond horrific act to "preach religion" as unbelievers would love to say... But on the contrary my dear friends, I am trying to communicate to you our readers, this state and our imploding nation reality and what is at the heart and root of our nation's horrific problems and to warn Americans with a genuine sincerity that our day here in America and in Connecticut is only going to get worse. I fully know that this is not a popular message but it has been put out there for those who have an ear to hear. We have planted and nurtured the seeds of lawlessness since the 60's and the evil violent harvest is ripe and plush for reaping as we have horrifically seen today (Gal. 6:7).

Decadence, lawlessness and moral relativism are now the dominant ideology of our land.
.
My dear friends it is not too hard to see for those who adhere to light and right (John 3:19-21, 8:32, 36), but our day has become so dark, so deviant, so lawless and yes relativistic that the average Joe or Sally is totally oblivious to Divine REALITY and moral absolutes. Today absolutes are so twisted out of proportion, words and morals are redefined to legitimize lawlessness. Good is called evil and evil good (Isa. 5:20)! Such were the days in which Isaiah the prophet spoke about and here we are today with the very same spirit at work in our nation.

My dear friends may I say it again with tears in my eyes, our day is ONLY going to get worse until we as a nation finally implode on ourselves. Decadence, lawlessness and moral relativism are now the dominant ideology of our land. We indeed as a nation have apostatized not just from Almighty God and His Word but from moral absolutes as well. The result of this apostasy is very evident today throughout our U.S. culture and society.

Do not let reprobate minds who are saturated with lawlessness deceive you into what is right and what is wrong. So subtle are their lies that many today are being deceived and allowing their emotions to do their “thinking for them.

May Almighty God’s Word give you the crucial light you need and keep your rooted and grounded as we as a nation and a world head strait into the Day of the Lord.

It is easy to deduce that the Liberal mind - void of Almighty God and moral absolutes is the exceedingly far greater evil and threat to our culture and society than any gun could ever be.

My dear friends the inmates are now running the asylum, Washington and the media. May You be sure that you have a saving relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, 16:29-31). May Almighty God’s Word give you the crucial light you need and keep you rooted and grounded as we as a nation and a world head strait into the Day of the Lord.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The American Leftist Media's Ideology

The ideology and philosophy of the American Leftist Media is based in the basest (lowest) form of thought and rationale. They use partial truths and follow their unbridled passions (lusts) and emotions (Psalm 14:1,3, Roms 1:18-32, Phil. 3:19, 2 Peter 2:12, Jude 1:10). They are narcissistic in their heart and subjective to the core. Their moral compass is all out-of-whack because of their complete and total rejection of absolutes (i.e., right and wrong). Since they also reject absolutes they hold themselves to no standard. They have no regard at all for morality, laws (natural/spiritual), personal accountability and responsibility (Gal. 5:19-12; 2 Peter 2:10, 18-19, Jude 10-13). In every way they are Machiavellian (i.e., believing that the end justifies the means), and just like their father the Devil (John 8:44). Because of their base condition, those on the Left are the most susceptible to Lucifer’s suggestions and will.
.
They (the Left) are narcissistic in their heart and subjective to the core. Their moral compass is all out-of-whack because of their complete and total rejection of natural law and absolutes.
,
This godless, base behavior is encouraged by the Father of Lies – Lucifer, or the Devil (John 8:44). His goal is to make humanity as base as possible in their thinking, and as callous (hardened) in their morality, so to despise what is right and wrong. His goal is to brainwash and dupe the masses into doing his bidding.

What is Truth?
,
It is imperative today that we see things from God’s point of view – from an "outside of the box" objective analysis - and with a biblical perspective. Only Almighty God and His Word can expose the current trends and ever moving agenda of Lucifer. Only Almighty God can reveal to fallen humanity the realities at hand (Matt. 16:17, John 3:3-12, 14:26, 16:13, Col. 2:15).


They (conservatives) also rejected this revelation and are subject to the god of this world’s dominion.

Sad, that multitudes on the Right today – including the leaders of the New Media - reject ALSO Almighty God's  revelation found only in Almighty God’s Word. These look at the Bible – Almighty God’s revelation to mankind - as relative and powerless. They have a form of godliness, but they deny the power of it (2 Tim 3:5). They are “religious” not real. They (conservatives) also rejected this revelation and are subject to the god of this world’s dominion (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-2). As they fight tooth and nail to "save" America, they are oblivious that they are being taken away in the current flood of the devastating consequences and fall out of today's political and exponential social changes. Conservatism is at the Alamo.
.
What the Conservatism and all other political ideologies need to do is to place their faith alone in Almighty God’s redemptive plan and program for this fallen world. He is the only hope.

May you place your trust and hope in Him alone!

My friend, are the many different talking heads of today's media confusing you? There is One that you can trust for the Truth and Reality coverage for your existence in time and ETERNITY future (Num. 23:19, Heb. 6:18, Rev. 1:5). He alone is Trustworthy. He alone is True. He alone is Faithful and Righteous (Rev. 1:5, 19:11).

May the hour in which we live in today drive you to the Savior of all mankind, the Lord Jesus Christ. May you place your trust and hope in Him alone. True hope and security are only found in Him. He will strengthen your heart and give you a sure foundation to stand on (Matt 7:24-27). You will never be the same… NEVER!

The First Four HORRIFIC Trumpet Judgments of the Day of the Lord

.
Following the Seal Judgments of the Lamb of God come Almighty God's "Trumpet Judgments" upon the earth’s inhabitants, its vegetation, its water (fresh and salt) and the celestial lights in the first and second heavens (Rev. 8:1-13).

As we shall see, the first four of the seven Trumpet Judgments shall strike the earth and its inhabitants with unparalleled EXPONENTIAL global cataclysmic destruction. Let us take a look!

The First Trumpet Judgment destroys 1/3 of all trees and grass upon the face of the earth with fire! (Rev.8:7). That comes to roughly 133 billion trees. 7% of all land mass is covered with grass. This area covers 9.93 million sq/km or 3.8 million sq/miles. This total area - which is given over to fire - is roughly a little bit bigger then the total land mass of the United States which would include Alaska. Can you even imagine the smoke which is generated from this global inferno?

The Second Trumpet Judgment will cause 1/3rd of all the seas of planet earth to turn to blood (Rev. 8:8-9). The fall out of this catastrophic global devastation will also cause 1/3 of all the sea creatures to perish and 1/3 of all the world's ships and their crews to perish also! Some facts:

1. 70.8 % of the earth’s surface is covered by water. 68% of that 70.8% is salt water. 1/3 of the seas or 22.6% of the world’s surface area or 122 million sq/km or 47.1 sq/miles will be decimated and turned into blood! That is roughly the size of the Pacific Ocean! (How horrific!!) Ocean info link
.
2. The number of sea creatures destroyed by this trumpet judgment will be too innumerable to number. From the smallest creatures to the giant whales it must be in the trillions.

3. The total number of merchant ships that populate the world is about 55,000. This figure includes bulk carriers, dry cargo vessels, MPP's, container vessels, tankers, LPG's, LNG's, and most cruise ships; this number however does not include private vessels. The world's total number of ships of war is estimated at 4500. 1/3 of this total number (59,500) comes to roughly 19,833 ships that will be destroyed in this great Second Trumpet judgment not counting countless thousands of sailors lives that will also perish. Can you even envision such wondrous cataclysmic devastation that will ravish a sea mass the almost the size of the Pacific Ocean?
.
The Third Trumpet Judgment will cause 1/3rd of all fresh water to be poisoned with wormwood and become bitter. The effects of this judgment will cripple society and multitudes will perish because of their ingestion of these bitter waters (Rev. 8:11). In this period - due to the horrific consequences of the Seal and Trumpet Judgments - drinking water will be very scarce to come by.

3% of the entire world’s water is fresh water. 1/3 of this water supply (33% of the 3%) will be poisoned killing multitudes of the world’s inhabitants during this period.

The Forth Trumpet Judgment will cause the celestial lights (sun, moon and stars) to dim their light 1/3rd of their normal strength (Rev. 8:12)!

Up to this point, try to comprehend - if at all possible - the unimaginable and exponential ravishing affects upon the face of the earth by these Seven Seal Judgments and the first four Trumpet Judgments. Remember, that these judgments were ordered upon the inhabitants of the earth and their planet because of their exponential godless rebellion and violence against the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God (Gen. 1:31, Isa. 24:5-6, Rom. 1:18-32). These horrific global catastrophes - including the unimaginable devastation incurred by the Four Horsemen and the wrath of man - in which 1/4th of the world’s population was slain - will bring to the fore front the unbridled passions and uncontrollable violence of humanity's godless and evil fallen heart (Ps. 7:9, Jer. 17:9-10, Matt. 15:17-20, Jude 1:10). Nothing manifests the human heart as tribulation does and reveals to all, our utter godless depravity without the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (Jer. 17:10, Matt 15:18-19, Gal. 5:19-21, Rev. 9:20-21).

Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS judgment which will come on the whole earth will be RIGHTEOUS and JUST (Psalm 9:8, 96:13, Rev. 16:5). Either it will lead us to  repentance and ETERNAL deliverance (Luke 18:13, John 3:36, Rom.2:4, 2 Cor. 7:10, Rev. 22:1-5) OR it will harden us to war against our Creator and damn us FOREVER in Almighty God's ETERNAL prison called the Lake of Fire  - (Matt. 25:41, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 20:11-15). Which choice have you made? My dear friend, if you have not chosen the ETERNAL love of Almighty God - which is found in His dear Son  - do so even today (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:9). Do NOT be a fool with your godless pride. Humble yourself and receive Almighty God's gift of redemption and pardon. You will NEVER EVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Jamie Foxx’s Spirit of Anti Christ - A Biblical Perspective



My friend’s we thought that we would just provide a biblical perspective and comment on the Jamie Foxx comments at the Soul Train awards; but in all honesty the hyper narcissistic godless Hollywood industry will just about say and do anything for money and self-praise. It should never surprise anyone what garbage comes out of their mouths for with their tongues they proclaim to all just who and what they are (Rom. 1:18-32; 3). I always enjoy the feigned and “hypocritical” actions of Hollywood’s deep concern for the world, national issues and societal crisis (Eccl. 7:6,Jude 1:15-19). They are always “acting” as if they really care about the poor, the world and this nation while they live in their elitist delusional world living life high on the hog sowing their godless oats (Jude 1:15-19). Through their moral relativistic prism and godless rebellion they honestly believe that they are role models for the youth of today and champions for the addicted to government handouts (red, yellow, black and white) – Rom. 1:32, Jude 1:15-19. It should never be of any surprise that when a camera is in front of these Hollywood types that these (John 4:24, 15:18, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, 2 Peter 3:1-5).
.
In Jamie Foxx’s case, he ought to thank Almighty God that he did not choose to slander the moon god of Islam and its prophet, for if he did he might have had to go under ground in fear for his vain life (existence).

In Jamie Foxx’s case, he ought to thank Almighty God that he did not choose to slander the moon god of Islam and its prophet, for if he did he might have had to go under ground in fear for his vain life (existence). Just the thought that Jamie - in the context of what he stated – showed absolutely no REVERENCE and FEAR in taking the opportunity to associate a “man” (BHO) with the Title of the ETERNAL King of kings ought to send horrific shivers up one’s spine and cause them to soil their under garments in great fear (Rev. 6:15-16)! Jamie choose the opportunity to exalt a man (BHO) above the MAN (Matt. 28:18, Acts 4:12, Eph.1:20-21, Phil. 2:9, Heb. 1:1-3, Rev. 5:11-14, 19:16); and not just a man (BHO)… but a man who is absolutely hell bent in uprooting ALL that has any resemblance to our nation’s Judeo/Christian past that is biblical, absolute, godly, sound and moral from his youth (Rom. 1:18-32; 3; 2 Tim. 3:1-7, Jude 1:10).

Our day here in “post Judeo/Christian America” is a day dominated by the spirit of anti Christ which John spoke about nearly 2000 years ago.

Maybe some reading this post might say, “Aren’t you making a little too much of this “Jamie Foxx” thing? Well my friends, this is “our” moral relativistic day of delusion in which we are living in and someone should point out the ETERNAL folly and godless irreverence from Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS position (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude1:15-19). I my dear friends am just the messenger and not a “self righteous Christian” (Rom. 3:23, 7:24-25, Rev. 1:5). If you have a problem with this biblical perspective on this matter, do not take it up with me (John 1:12, Rom.7:24-25), but take it up with your ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator; for it is He that we will ALL give an account to (Matt. 7:21-23, John 3:16-17, 36).

Our day here in “post Judeo/Christian America” is a day dominated by the spirit of anti Christ which John spoke about nearly 2000 years ago (1 John 2:18-22, 4:1-3). It was alive and well in John’s day after the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of the Savior and Christ of the world and it is near fully mature in these Last Days.

Little does Jamie and the elite godless, immoral, moral relativists of Hollywood comprehend that the very slander and making light of the LORD Jesus Christ and SAVIOR’S NAME displays their godless rebellion against Him as they live their godless vain existence unto the Day of Judgment (John 3:3:16-17,36, Rev. 6:13-17, 20:11-15).

Of course it is our absolute sincere desire that Jamie Foxx and ALL would turn from their narcissistic godless lives (conservative or liberal), transgressions and godless rebellion to the LORD and Savior for ETERNAL redemption (Acts 4:12, 16:29-31, Rom.10:2-4). When we say it is our sincere desire that these would TURN to the LORD and SAVIOR we do not mean Barack H. Obama who to many is their little finite savior for their brief vain existence here on planet earth (Psalm 144:4, Eccl.1:1-3, Isa. 2:22, James 4:14).


Let their lives and attitudes be a lesson to all to NEVER turn one’s back on the LOVE, GRACE, MERCY, GOODNESS and LONG SUFFERING of Almighty God, for in doing so one hates and despises their very own soul and manifest their satanic rebellion.

For those of us who have fully placed our trust in the ETERNAL Person and Work of the LORD and SAVIOR Jesus Christ we see the absolute folly in such irreverence towards Almighty God; for if Jamie and others had truly comprehended the absolute idiocy and full magnitude of their remarks they would have never stated them. No one in their right mind ever would!

As scoffers of the past have come and gone and are now awaiting the ETERNAL Judgment for their unrighteous acts and words against the ETERNAL spiritual absolutes of Almighty God (Rom. 2:4,9:17-23, Jude 1:1-25), let their lives and attitudes be a lesson to all to NEVER turn one’s back on the LOVE, GRACE, MERCY, GOODNESS and LONG SUFFERING of Almighty God (John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:4). For in doing so one hates and despises their very own soul and manifest their satanic rebellion (Matt. 25:41, Rom.1:18-32, 2:4, Rev.20:10-15).

While there is still breath in Jamie Foxx’s nostrils may Jamie wake up from his godless demonic spell and self induced delusion to the REALITY that it is this Very One who he has replaced with Barack H. Obama Who died in his place and has provided for him all the remedies he needs to dwell at peace ETERNALLY with Almighty God (John 3:16-17,36, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 1:30-31, 1 2;2, John 4:10).

May it be so!

Is Capital Punishment Biblical?















CAPITAL PUNISHMENT - What Does the Bible Teach on this Vital Subject?

Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. (Genesis 9:6)

1. Instituted by God Himself
Capital punishment was instituted by God Himself after the worldwide flood. We learn of this in Genesis 9:6--"Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." This verse speaks of a murderer, one who knowingly and violently sheds another man's blood, resulting in death. God here gives man the authority and the right and the duty to put to death the murderer: "by man shall his blood be shed." The reason given for this is based upon the value and sacredness of human life: "for in the image of God made he man." In this case we have justice being carried out according to the rule: "life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth" (Exodus 21:23-24). The penalty should fit the crime. In this case the crime is murder and the penalty is death. Notice that Genesis 9:6 was given to man even before the law of Moses was given.

2. "Thou Shalt Not Kill"?
Capital punishment is not a violation of the sixth commandment which says, "Thou shalt not kill" (Exodus 20:13). The proper translation of this verb is "Thou shalt not murder." See modern translations (such as the NASB, the NIV and the NKJV) and also see Matthew 19:18 in the KJV. All murder is killing but not all killing is murder. Some examples of killing that would not be considered as murder are as follows: a) killing the enemy in war (Bible examples: David killing Goliath, Joshua and the Israelites when they conquered the land); b) a husband, discovering a man about to kill his wife and/or children, protects and defends his family by having to kill the attacker; c) a policeman who kills in the line of duty in order to protect innocent life; d) the person carrying out capital punishment, such as the man who must pull the switch for the electric chair; e) accidental killing, when the killer never intended to take someone's life. We should also note that the Lord Jesus Christ Himself will "judge and make war" at His second coming resulting in countless numbers of deaths (Rev. 19:11-20).

3. Crimes Punishable By Death
We are assured that capital punishment is not a violation of the Ten Commandments. This is evident when one studies the chapter which immediately follows the ten commandments: Exodus chapter 21 (the Ten Commandments are found in chapter 20). In chapter 21 we learn that God in His law demanded the death penalty for a number of crimes such as murder, kidnapping, cursing parents, etc. See Exodus 21:12,15,16,17. See also Leviticus 20:10-17 for other crimes punishable by death in the law of Moses.

4. The Executioner As God's Servant
In New Testament times capital punishment was still being practiced. Romans 13:4 says that God has given human governments the authority to execute wrath upon evildoers by means of a sword (a common instrument of capital punishment in New Testament days). The Apostle Paul was living in a day when capital punishment was commonly practiced in the Roman empire (quite unlike our day), and yet he did not condemn this practice. On the contrary he described the person who bears the sword as being God's servant. Thus the one punishing the evildoer does so in the exercise of God's delegated authority.

5. An Effective Deterrent
Capital punishment, when consistently practiced, is a very effective deterrent to crime because the fear of death is the greatest fear that man has (see Hebrews 2:14-15). Since death is the king of fears, a man will think twice about committing a crime if he knows it will cost him his life. He will be less reluctant to murder someone if he knows that the worst that could happen to him is to stay in jail the rest of his life with meals provided, television to watch, etc. When swift justice is carried out then "those who remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil" (Deut.19:20). When the right penalty is not executed speedily, then this is an encouragement to crime (see Eccles. 8:11).

6. Cruel and Inhumane?
Is capital punishment cruel and inhumane? Death is usually not pleasant to witness, and certainly those responsible for putting a criminal to death do not have an enviable task. Nevertheless we need to be careful that we do not focus on the criminal and forget about the victim of the crime. Cold-blooded murder is very cruel and inhumane. Forcible rape is very cruel and inhumane. Hijacking an airplane and endangering the lives of many innocent people is very cruel and inhumane. Pushing life-destroying drugs is very cruel and inhumane. In our zeal to protect the criminal we can lose sight of the terribleness of the crime. Regardless of a person's position on capital punishment, all would have to agree that if a murderer is put to death, he will never murder again. It is remarkable that those people who decry capital punishment as being a cruel and inhumane method of destroying people's lives are often the same people who are strongly in favor of abortion rights. Why does a guilty murderer have a greater right to life than an unborn child?

7. Paul's Own Testimony
What did the Apostle Paul think of capital punishment? Did he consider it to be unfair and cruel and inhumane? We have already considered Paul's teaching in Romans 13, but we should also make note of what the Apostle said in Acts 25:11: "If I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die." Paul knew that there were certain crimes that were worthy of death, and he knew that those guilty of such crimes must be executed. If he was guilty of such, then he would not refuse to die. He would submit to capital punishment if he had done deeds worthy of such. Of course, Paul was innocent of any such crimes, and yet he was eventually executed under Nero. For what crime? For preaching the gospel of the grace of God!

8. Bright Barbarians
Even uncultured men know deep down in their hearts that certain crimes demand the death penalty. This is illustrated in Acts 28 when Paul was shipwrecked upon the island of Melita (Malta) where he met a group of kindly barbarians (v.1-2). As Paul was gathering sticks for the fire, a deadly venomous snake bit him on the hand. Normally such a bite would be fatal in a matter of minutes. When the natives saw this they said, "No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet justice alloweth not to live" (v.4). These natives saw what they thought was the penalty (death) and thus they assumed the crime (he must be a murderer). They soon learned that they were mistaken, but the point is that these barbarians had a built in sense of justice and they knew that murderers should pay for their crime by death.

9. The Testimony of a Thief (Robber)
In Luke chapter 23 we have the honest testimony of a man who was being put to death for crimes he had done. This was capital punishment by means of Roman crucifixion. This man was an evildoer, he was arrested, and he was found guilty of crimes worthy of death. Modern methods of execution are generally very mild and painless as compared to Roman crucifixion. What did this man think of capital punishment? Was he opposed to it? Did he consider it to be cruel and inhumane? Did he think it to be unfair and unjust? Here is his testimony (his words to the other condemned criminal): "Dost thou not fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds" (Luke 23:40-41). In other words, he was saying, "We are getting exactly what we deserve: death by crucifixion. What we have done is worthy of death!" Before men and before human government most of us are not guilty of crimes worthy of death. However, before a Holy God every one of us needs to recognize that we have done certain things that are worthy of death (see Romans 1:29-32; 6:23a). As the Old Testament says, "The soul that sinneth, it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4). How thankful we should be that our Lord Jesus Christ suffered the death penalty for us: "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Rom. 5:8).

10. The Death of an Innocent Man
If capital punishment is practiced, are there not times when an innocent man is pronounced guilty and put to death? Yes, sadly this is true. Our judicial system is far from perfect and there are times when the guilty are justified and the innocent are condemned (compare Deut. 25:1). Even without the death penalty, it is true that occasionally some innocent men are sent to prison even for life. We must remember that there is in heaven a true and righteous Judge who sees all and who knows all and who someday will make right all that is wrong and will straighten out all that is crooked. In eternity, all will be corrected (see Luke 16:25 for an example of this). The greatest example of an innocent man being put to death is that of the Lord Jesus Himself, "who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth" (1 Pet. 2:22). The only sinless Man who ever lived was condemned to death by crucifixion! As we think about Christ's death, we must remember that it was for our sins that He suffered and bled and died (1 Cor. 15:3; Rom. 5:8). "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just (the Righteous One) for the unjust (the unrighteous ones), that he might bring us to God" (1 Pet. 3:18). We are the guilty ones who deserved the death penalty (Rom. 6:23), but Jesus paid it all! He died so that we might live (John 5:24)!
