No Peace For America

There is absolutely no way that TRUE PEACE and PERFECT HARMONY can EVER be brought about WITHOUT the ETERNAL established RIGHTEOUSNESS of ALMIGHTY GOD (Isa. 32:17, 48:18,22). Almighty God’s whole ETERNITY and physical universe was established based on the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS PERSON of the TRIUNE GOD! How deceived are we as Americans (conservative, moderate or progressive) and totally delusional to think that we as Adam’s fallen race could establish a PERFECT world and enter into ETERNITY without the required RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God demands (1 Cor. 6:8-11, Gal. 5:19-21, Rev. 21:8, 22:14-15). Indeed there will NEVER be any TRUE peace or TRUE harmony for those who practice and engage in lawlessness, only ETERNAL ruin (Isa. 48:22, 57:21, Rev. 20:11-15, 21:8, 22:11).

We are a smashed and broken egg with absolutely no way our repairing ourselves.

We are a smashed and broken egg with absolutely no way our repairing ourselves. 6000 years of human history testifies to the fact that we are a violent and lawless race with death as our future and destiny (Rom. 3:23) and on our way to total destruction. If it had not been for Almighty God’s outside intervention holding back the full accumulation of violence of mankind we would have been extinct a long time ago (Matt. 24:21-22, 2 Thess. 2:6-8). Isn’t it amazing that as American’s listen to our leaders in Washington D.C., the media (conservative and liberal), Hollywood and the music culture and industry preach utopian ideals unto them that the majority of the world sincerely believe that lie from hell, which is if we just keep working at “peace” (give peace a chance) that we will one day finally achieve it?

How deceived are we as humans and totally delusional to think that we as Adam’s fallen race could establish a PERFECT world and enter into ETERNITY without the required RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God demands.

My friend, let's wake up and get real! There is NO WAY that a smashed egg can EVER again be put perfectly back together and there is NO WAY that this broken world can EVER fix itself. This vain utopian pursuit is the ultimate delusional chasing of the devil’s cattle. At the end of this vain delusional chase the world will tragically finally find out the REALITIES of time and ETERNITY that they have REJECTED their whole lives (Luke 16:22-31, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). It will be in that Day that these will be fully AWAKENED from their self induced godless hypnotic delusion and will FULLY understand that their lawless self willed existence here in time has led them straight into the slaughter house of the ETERNAL Divine Judgment and wrath of Almighty God (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2; 8-12, Rev.20:11-15).

This vain utopian pursuit is the ultimate delusional chasing of the devil’s cattle.

Almighty God calls out to all in these last days to the receive REALITY, TRUTH and RIGHTEOUSNESS and to be SAVED from the wrath to come (John 3:16-17, Acts 17:30-31, Rom. 2:4, 1Tim. 2:3-4)! My dear friend, your Creator has a glorious future for you IF you would only receive it (John 1:12, 3:16-17, 1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5). Have you been living in a delusion about life, this world and your ETERNAL future? My dear friend put aside your subjective pride and be objective and believe and receive the Savior. You will NEVER EVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is ta hand!

The George Zimmerman Trial and the Resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ


                                                                                 
The George Zimmerman trial (relating to the death of Trayvon Martin) in the summer of 2013 became a matter of national attention, and many Americans followed this trial very closely. 

This case can be used as an illustration of the amazing amount of evidence we have for the resurrection of Christ. 

The jurors had to decide whether Zimmerman acted in self defense and a lot of this hinged on whether he was on top or on the bottom when these two men were struggling together. 

There was only one witness who was close enough to really see what really happened and he testified that George Zimmerman was on the bottom. 

The testimony of this one witness was crucial in determining the final verdict. The testimony of this one eye-witness was very significant in this case. 

Now consider the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection was the greatest proof that Jesus Christ was everything He claimed to be. How do we know that Jesus Christ was indeed the Son of God; the resurrection is the greatest proof (Romans 1:3-4). 

So what is the evidence? How many eye-witnesses could come forward and testify that they saw Jesus alive from the dead?

(Not necessarily in chronological order)

There was Mary Magdalene, the first to see Him (John 20:14-18).

Then there was Peter (1 Cor. 15:5).

Then the two men on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24).

Then the 10 disciples with Thomas absent (John 20:19-23).

Then to the 11 disciples when doubting Thomas became convinced Thomas (John 20:24-29).

Then to 7 disciples on the sea of Galilee (John 21:1-11).

Then there was James, the Lord’s half brother (1 Cor. 15:7).

And then in Galilee he appeared to over 500 people at one time (1 Cor. 15:6).

Then later you had Saul of Tarsus (Acts 9).


So you had well over 500 witnesses who could have testified that they had seen the living Christ, and some of these witnesses had seen Him on more than one occasion (Peter, for example, saw Him on five difference occasions or more). 

If there had been a court case back then and if these witnesses had been called to testify, the jury would have had overwhelming evidence that Jesus rose again from the dead. How can anyone dispute the testimony of over 500 people who saw the Lord on a number of different occasions? 

In the Martin/Zimmerman case there was only one witness who saw the struggle and who gave compelling evidence that helped to sway the jury.

 
 How can anyone dispute the testimony of over 500 people who saw the Lord on a number of different occasions?

In the case of the empty tomb there were over 500 eye witnesses. A person has every right to doubt the resurrection of Christ, but only if he is willing to close his eyes to the massive mountain of evidence which proves that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 

These are not the only witnesses that could have been brought forward. There are countless thousands of other people who were not eyewitnesses of the resurrection, and yet who could genuinely testify to the fact that their lives have been transformed by the risen Christ. Are you one of those? 

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved!" (Rom. 10:9). 

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Intervention for the Damned


















This world in which we live is a fallen world (Rom. 5:12-19), ravished by the violations of God’s natural and spiritual laws (Isaiah 24:5). There is absolutely NO hope for mankind when left to this world's designs. Godless man - no matter how noble, no matter how virtuous, no matter how full of good intentions - can never and will never bring about an utopian world peace. This is impossible apart from Almighty God and His Saving Grace. All the good intentions and humanitarian efforts of humanity are vanity (Eccl. 1:4, 4:4). In light of our true and most desperate need, we need Almighty God’s salvation and deliverance from the wrath which is to come (John 3:16-17; Rom. 7:24, 25; 2 Thess. 1:8-10). A broken egg world (Romans 3:23) can never be fixed by broken egg humanity. How can imperfection create perfection? How can chaos and anarchy bring about peace and harmony? These are just basic common sense truths that humanity will NOT address. Humanity has a "terminal fixation" on things belonging to the temporal confines of time (i.e., that which has a beginning and an end). At the same time, it has absolutely NO CONCEPT of the things of ETERNITY and its future destiny therein.

How can imperfection create perfection? How can chaos and anarchy bring about peace and harmony? These are just basic common sense truths that humanity will NOT address.

Just a note of explanation here: OF COURSE we should do all we can to help those who are oppressed and devastated by the ravishing of this fallen world, but that in and by itself will NEVER SAVE anyone in the Day of Judgment (Rev. 20:11-15). or deliver anyone from the reign of Death in this fallen world. Only an “outside intervention” from Almighty God can deliver us from the terror of death and His wrath (John 3:36; Rom. 4:25; 5:6-8)!

Divine Intervention

2000 years ago, God sent His Son to pay the price for our trespasses and to deliver us from this present fallen world (John 3:16-17, Gal. 1:4). God the Father sent His Son not to judge us but to deliver us from our ruin (Romans 7:24-25). Jesus came to earth to SAVE and DELIVER the damned from ruin and ETERNAL judgment. It is when we reject His saving grace that in the end He becomes our Judge (Rev. 20:11-15).

This world is bankrupt and ruined by man’s transgressions (Isa 24:5-6). Once these realities are seen by an honest and humbled heart, that individual will comprehend his desperate need for God’s mercy and saving grace (Romans 7:24-25).

As these days are coming to an end and as the world falls deeper into decadence and ruin, may I ask you this very sobering question? Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your PERSONAL Savior? All depends on it. Through Christ, God has redeemed the world to Himself and will restore it for 1000 years in peace and righteousness (Isaiah 11). After Christ's 1000-year reign we (i.e., those who have received Almighty God’s saving grace) will reign with Him FOREVER and EVER in righteousness (Rev. 22:1-5). That is what God's plan is for everyone... for those who will but choose it!

My friend, what hope there is in Almighty God! Place your trust in Him today. You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
