Come With Me Ye Children

Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men?



















One of the most favorite sayings and happy thoughts that are spoken frequently by people during the Christmas or “holiday” season is the phrase “Peace on Earth good will to men”. There are bumper stickers, signs, shirts, holiday cards, trinkets etc. that seek to capitalize and get out this optimistic and positive message. Even liberal secularists who reject biblical Christianity love to quote this phrase and claim it as their own. Sadly, this phrase is TOTALLY taken out of the biblical context and is perceived from a subjective godless utopian world perspective (conservative and liberal).

Even liberal secularists who reject biblical Christianity love to quote this phrase and claim it as their own.

The origin of this quote is taken from the biblical account in Luke of the countless MILLIONS of angelic beings who were sent forth by Almighty God to proclaim the Savior’s birth (Luke 2:.8-15, Heb.1:14). These countless innumerable angelic beings manifested themselves with the heavenly heralds of wondrous and astonishing exaltations of great joy to the oblivious shepherds who were in the fields of Bethlehem GUARDING their sheep by NIGHT (Luke 2:8-14). It was in the birth of THIS child (Jesus Messiah (Isa. 9:6-7) that Almighty God would bring forth the propitiation for redemption for ALL of fallen humanity and the final death nail and demise of Lucifer and his fallen angelic monsters (Gen. 3:15, John 16:7-11, 1 John 1:2:2, Rev. 5, 20:10). The righteous angelic hosts of heaven comprehended what was taking place and were ecstatic about what their Creator was doing. It absolutely stupefied these angelic beings as the Son of God - the pinnacle of glory - stepped out of ETERNITY and and put on flesh and blood to redeem Adam’s fallen race. Is it any wonder that and shouted with exceedingly great joy (John 1:1-3, 14, Phil. 2:5-11, Heb. 10:1-18)!

It absolutely stupefied these angelic beings as the Son of God - the pinnacle of glory - stepped out of ETERNITY and and put on flesh and blood to redeem Adam’s fallen race.

Almighty God the Creator of all (Col. 1:16,-17, Heb. 1:2-3, Rev. 4:11) was interceding on behalf of Adam’s fallen and rebellious race and showing forth His ETERNAL love, mercy and grace in good will towards His enemies (Rom. 5:6, Eph. 2:1-10, Col. 1:20-22). The objective angelic understanding of Adam’s fallen race far exceeds our own as humans (Heb.1:14). They exist and dwell in FULL REALITY and heavenly LIGHT. They know all to well the horrific devastation that awaits unrepentant unregenerate transgressing mankind in the Lake of Fire FOREVER (Matt. 13:42, 50, 25:41, John 3:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15, 21:8). Is it any wonder that the angelic hosts of heaven rejoice with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT joy when just one son of Adam repents and comes to the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world as their personal Savior (Isa. 53, Luke 2:13-14, John 3:16-17). This is what is meant by the statement “peace on earth good will towards men”. This child - who is Almighty God the Son - PUT ON flesh and blood to shed His RIGHTEOUS blood for the transgressions of the entire world (Adam to the end of time).

Is it any wonder that the angelic hosts of heaven rejoiced with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT joy when just one son of Adam repents and comes to the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world as their personal Savior.

It was to be His sacrificial death and resurrection from the dead that would restore fellowship between man with their Creator and establish an EVERLASTING peace between the two parties (Job 9:33, John 1:14, Rom. 10:4, Phil. 2:5-11, Heb. 1:2-3, 10: 1-18). My beloved, this child IS our PEACE (Isa. 9:6, Eph. 2:14-17, Col. 1:20, 1 John 2:2)! When we seek to say “peace on earth, good will towards men” and LEAVE OUT the Son of God who is the ONLY Savior and method FOR establishing TRUE PEACE, we deceive ourselves and join in Satan’s godless rebellion against ALL that is the ETERNAL God and His ETERNAL sovereignty (2 Cor. 4:3-4). There can NEVER be true peace for those who REJECT and leave Almighty God the Son out of the equation (Psalm 112:10, Isa. 32:17, 48:18, 22, Rev. 20:11-15). Notice how the world leaves off and will NEVER state the first part of the quote, “GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST”? They can’t and will NEVER acknowledge that, for if they did they would have to repent and be saved (John 3:19-21, Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess 2:10)!

When we seek to say “peace on earth, good will towards men” and LEAVE OUT the Son of God who is the ONLY Savior and method FOR establishing TRUE PEACE, we deceive ourselves and join in Satan’s godless rebellion against ALL that is the ETERNAL God and His ETERNAL sovereignty.

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 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 (1 Cor. 6:8-11, Gal. 5:19-21, Rev. 21:8, 22:14-15).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).

My dear friend this is not Almighty God’s desire for you, to die in your transgressions. He sent His Son 2000 years ago born of a virgin so you might LIVE FOREVER with Him and to enjoy Him in RIGHTEOUS PERFECTION and BLISS FOREVERMORE (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev 21-22:1-5). This was Almighty God’s grand desire at the beginning of creation for mankind not what man has horrifically reaped upon himself. We as a world do not know divine PEACE let alone the temporal peace that fallen man can barely manufacture (Isa. 32:17, 48:18, 22, 53, John 1:10-11, Rom. 3, Rev.6-16).

A Savior was born and is soon coming again in great glory to establish His 1000 year reign of PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS!

This season may we truly - with all our being - want to know, possess and exercise the wondrous peace of Almighty God which He has brought to us by the shed blood of His dear Son (Eph. 2:14). As we walk in time may we seek to enjoy our redemptive benefits which have been given to us by our God and Savior (Eph. 1:3, 2:1-19, Phil. 4:17, Col. 3:1-4) and the heavenly peace of heart that comes with the fact and reality that our sins and trespasses are removed FOREVER (Psalm 103:12, Rom. 7:24-25, 10:4, Gal 1:4). That my friends is what “peace on earth is all about! Rejoice GREATLY (Phil. 4:4)! A Savior was born and is soon coming again in great glory to establish His 1000 year reign of PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS (Isa. 2:1-4, 9:6-7, 11:1-9, 32:1 Jer. 23:5, 33:15-16, Dan. 2:44-45, 7:7:13-14, Micah 4:1-4)!!!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The 76th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the Day of the Lord!

Today (December 7th) marks the 76th year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor naval base. How sad that this date - which would live in infamy - has been nearly forgotten by toady's American population and especially our youth. Tragically it has been the successful revision of our American history by the Left and the evils of it that has made us weak and vulnerable to a present day "Pearl Harbor" of  EXPONENTIAL proportions (Rev. 6).

It was under the deception of peace and negotiations that Japan struck without warning.

To set the stage for 1941, tensions were high between Tokyo and Washington. Japan had been flexing its military muscle through out China and ravishing the Chinese people and their neighboring countries. Japan's naval might was astounding and they dominated the Pacific ocean. It was under the deception of peace and negotiations that Japan struck without warning. They attacked first, THEN declared war! How and why did America not see what was eventually coming baffles people to this day? In light of Japan's aggressive military advancements and military policies the evidence was more than abundant. Sadly, our guard was up BUT... we deceived ourselves that we were safe from the threat of the Japanese Imperial Navy and their military aggressions. The mind set was that it could not happen to us? We are safe, surrounded by the two big ponds and we are America, the greatest nation in the world. Who could EVER attack us? This same mindset was also present on 9/11/2001.

On a beautiful SUNDAY morning when our guard was down and day dreaming of a positive bright future for the world and our children infamy struck.
.
On a beautiful SUNDAY morning when our guard was down and day dreaming of a positive bright future for the world and our children infamy struck. The attacks on Pearl Harbor shocked our nation and woke a sleeping giant to the realities of this big bad fallen evil world. That day America personally experienced the horrific aggressive appetites of the world's power hungry war pigs of their day and the result was horrific war.

Since 1941 we as a nation and a world have EXPONENTIALLY changed for the worse. Our barbarity, decadence, lasciviousness, greed, violence and narcissism has saturated our world from top to bottom and the evidence of it is every where. With the arrival of the technology age all have access to its  mighty power. There is absolutely no comparison to our day (2017) then that of 1941.  We have EXPONENTIALLY changed as individuals, callus and wanton. The technological advances have demonstrated as we as a world have expressed to all who that we are more evil and more godless than ever (conservative and liberal). We have demonstrated to angels good and bad every where that we DO NOT NEED Almighty God's PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS - which is found ONLY in Jesus Christ - and are quite self sufficient and content in our fallen humanity (conservative or liberal) to exist without our Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH (John 1:10, Rom. 1:18-32, 10:2-4).

The technological advances OF OUR DAY have demonstrated to all who pay attention that we are more evil and more godless than ever (conservative and liberal).

It will be this very mindset and godless attitude that will lead this oblivious present world straight into the Day of the Lord and into the unimaginable, (the reception of Lucifer's and his anti Christ - 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 6-9, 13). As the attacks on Pearl Harbor and 9/11 OVERTOOK a sleeping nation so will the Day of the Lord OVER TAKE a sleeping America and an entire world (1 Thess. 5:3, Rev. 6-16). An overwhelming majority of the world's inhabitants (conservative and liberal) REJECT the RIGHTEOUS REALITIES of Almighty God's Word and its prophetic TRUTHS. Deep in their hearts mankind KNOWS without a shadow of a doubt that Almighty God's Day of Reckoning is at hand (Rom. 1:32). Sadly they seek to suppress and block out these REALITIES in the fear that they would have to repent and be saved (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2:10, Rev. 21:8, 27). How tragic!

An overwhelming majority of the world's inhabitants (conservative and liberal) REJECT the RIGHTEOUS REALITIES of Almighty God's Word and its prophetic TRUTHS.

The Holy Scriptures give ample warnings to be awake and on our guard about the day and hour in which we are presently living in. NOT to be asleep, but awake (Rom. 13:11, Thess. 5:6)! NOT to be idle, but redeeming the time (Eph. 5:16-17)! NOT to be ignorant fools, but wise (2 Cor. 2:11, Rom. 10:3, 11:25, 1 Thess. 4:13-18). NOT to be unbelieving, but believing (Mark 11:22, Heb. 11:6, James 1:6-8, 1 John 5:4)! Sadly many professing "Christians" know not the TRUE Christ of Holy Scripture and are deceiving themselves about their ETERNAL estate (Matt 7:21-23, Rom. 10:2-4, Jude 1:10). They themselves are looking for a delusional earthly world utopia and are oblivious to the Battle of Armageddon, Christ's glorious return to earth and the establishment of the 1000 year Kingdom of Heaven on earth.(Isa. 2:1-5, 11, Micah 4:1-4, Matt. 7:21-23, 15:7-9, Rev. 16:13-16, 19:11-21). Is it no wonder that that Day comes as a thief in the night!

In these last days may we be the children of light that our Savior desires of us. May we be steadfast and unmovable as this world is about to enter the ultimate "Pearl Harbor" called,  "the Day of the Lord" (1 Thess. 5:3).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Awaiting Red Dragon and the First Christmas.













Long before the first nativity (First Christmas) ever took place it was well known by the god of this world (Gen. 3:14-15, Eph. 2:2-3, Rev. 12:4). Lucifer, - at his fall -ABSOLUTELY COMPREHENDED that he was ETERNALLY doomed. His violent rebellion against Almighty God’s ETERNAL sovereignty and RIGHTEOUSNESS was WELL planned and thought out (Isa. 14:12-15). I truly believe that when Lucifer was created at the beginning of Almighty God’s creation and was given the chief position in the worship of the TRIUNE GOD that he truly loved and adored his Creator (Ezek. 28:12-15). The heavenly worship which he conducted in that timeless past was one of majestic praise and glory. He inspired the countless angelic hosts and brought great praise and glory to Almighty God. But as time went on Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion. He began looking at his created beauty and pride and rebellion began to consume him (Ezek. 28:12-15).

But as time went on Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion.

As time went on he became more and more consumed with power and finally acted on his godless delusional ambitions and fully crossed over the line of the ETERNAL established RIGHTEOUSNESS and SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God (Isa, 14:12-15, Ezek. 28:15) into the full manifestation of godless evil and rebellion. His new totalitarian mindset (the lust for total control) transgressed and undermined all that is Almighty God and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS SOVEREIGNTY. Lucifer then proceeded to seduced and convinced 1/3 of the angelic host to partake in his godless transgression and rebellion against all that is ETERNALLY ABSOLUTE and was cast out of the presence of Almighty God (Rev. 12:4). He was exiled out of Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom of light and was cast out into the outer darkness of Almighty God's creation. All the wonder of his CREATED beauty was as a beautifully cut diamond surrounded by a multitude of precious jewels (Ezek. 28:12-15). When he rebelled and abandoned the LIGHT of RIGHTEOUSNESS he became valueless and with out purpose. For WITHOUT the brilliance of HIS Creator’s DIVINE light of RIGHTEOUSNESS the wondrous jewels that he was became worthless and of no value. What value are the most precious jewels of the world when they are left in the darkness? As these exiled angelic beings began to exist in the darkness of their minds - which was outside Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom’s realm of light and reality - they became more subjectively godless, evil, lawless and hateful. As their rage and insanity grew to EXPONENTIAL levels they fully abandoned ALL reality and became more aggressive in their war against Almighty God. This demonic aggression would be fully exercised and expressed in the heart of Almighty God’s new physical and tangible creation, the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3).

It was not to long after God’s new creation (Gen. 1) was completed that Lucifer found his opportunity and sought to deceive and destroy Almighty God’s divine representative and ruler over His physical creation, Man (Gen. 2). It was by the same subtle craftiness and deception which Lucifer applied to the angelic multitudes in the heavenly realm prior to this new creation that he would use on Man (John 8:44). Lucifer went forth in his vindictive vengeance and by his craftiness and subtle questioning deceived and led the woman to commit spiritual suicide (Gen. 3:1-6, 1 Tim. 2:14). Lucifer knew that by the woman’s weaknesses he could bait and bring down Adam, thus corrupting and destroying Almighty God’s new creation and His sovereign representative (i.e., Man) and rule. When Adam followed his wife’s transgression and openly disobeyed Almighty God’s commands, he also died spiritually and lost his dominion to Satan who became the ruler of this fallen world (Gen. 3, Rom. 5:12, 17, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:2-3).

In the darkened minds of these fallen beings they truly believed that they had the power to still over through the ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God and establish Lucifer’s throne above the pinnacle of ETERNITY.

Lucifer had successfully destroyed Almighty God’s sovereign representative and rendered him useless for man’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS calling and purpose (Gen. 3:1-7, Rom. 5:12, 17). Lucifer and the fallen angelic host rejoiced greatly at the success of this great demonic coos! Their revenge was complete… so they thought and their vindictive rage finally appeased. In the darkened minds of these fallen beings they truly believed that they had the power to still over through the ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God and establish Lucifer’s throne above the pinnacle of ETERNITY (Isa. 14:12-15). Oh how deceived are those who dwell in darkness and feed on delusion and vanity (Prov. 8:36, Rom. 1:18-32, John 3:19-21)! As time would go on they would personally experience they were ETERNALLY no match for the OMNISCIENCE of Almighty God (Job 5:9, Isa. 40:28, 55:9, Rom. 11:33).

It was at this point in time – at Adam’s fall - that Almighty God revealed His plan of REDEMPTION which was planned from the ENDLESS ETERNAL EONS of ETERNITY PAST (Gen. 3:14-15, 1 Peter 1:19-20, Rev. 13:9).

As Almighty God pronounced the judgment and revealed the consequences that would now follow Adam and Eve and their posterity through out their existence in time, He then revealed His plan for the ETERNAL salvation for man and the final means of the demise of Lucifer and his angelic demonic hosts (Gen. 3:15). It would be through the Man, - the very one who Lucifer had deceived and murdered spiritually - that the Savior would come (Rom. 5:12-21, 1 Cor. 15:21)! This Offspring of Eve would redeem mankind from their fallen nature, godless transgressions and ETERNAL demise and then would finally assign Lucifer and his angels to the Lake of Fire FOREVER (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 19:11-21, 20:1-3, 10). What looked like to Lucifer as a victorious coop over Almighty God the ETERNAL KING of GLORY when he murdered Adam and Eve had now become the very means and vessel of Lucifer’s ETERNAL demise and ruin (Rom. 5:6-21, 1 Cor. 15:21, Rev 1:18, 5). It would be by this far lesser creature (Man) than he, that Lucifer would find his final ETERNAL doom (John 1:1-3,14, Rom. 1:3-4, Phil. 2:6-11, Heb. 2:14-18, Rev. 5:5, 20:10).

What looked like to Lucifer as a victorious coop over Almighty God the ETERNAL KING of GLORY when he murdered Adam and Eve had now become the very means and vessel of Lucifer’s ETERNAL demise and ruin.

Since the Garden of Eden it has always been Satan and his demonic host’s sole desire and passion to destroy the line of the Messiah in whatever capacity and means possible (Rev. 12:4). Though Satan FULLY rejects the ETERNAL WORD of Almighty God, he believes what it states and uses Almighty God’s prophetic promises to seek to derail and destroy Almighty God’s prophetic promises from coming to be. One cannot study and read the Word of God and its righteous testimonies and not see Satan’s hand at work in his perpetual effort to derail Almighty God’s plan and purposes for humanity at every chance (John 8:44, Eph. 6:12, Rev. 12:9). He MUST... destroy the coming (1st and 2nd) of the Messiah to preserve himself and his host from ETERNAL damnation. He truly believes that it is in his power to over throw Almighty God and His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY and become lord  and despot of His creation (physical and spiritual). As a raging madman, Lucifer was hell bent on destroying Almighty God’s Promised One from being born. It has been since the Garden of Eden that he has been on this perpetual assassination mission and as we shall see, he was present and ready to destroy the babe of Bethlehem 2000 years ago (Rev. 12:4).

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman (Israel) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon (Satan), having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars (angels) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God and to his throne” (Rev. 12:1-5).

You see, Lucifer “the Dragon” was there on that first Christmas night when the Savior of the world was born (Rev. 12:4). This violent raging Dragon knew exactly who this babe was and he could not afford to let this One who was the promised Savior from the Garden of Eden to exist (Gen. 3). He (the Messiah) had to be annihilated and destroyed. Yet Almighty God and His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY kept this dragon a bay. There is the account given in Scripture in which we see Satan's hand behind Herod’s violent decree two years later in which he sought to destroy every child in the city of David up to two years old (Matt. 2:12-21). Lucifer throughout Jesus Messiah’s life sought countless attempts on Jesus’ life – but all to no avail - for it was not His time. Jesus must go to the Cross and fulfill His divine mission of REDEMPTION and nothing - not even the great red Dragon - could stop that from coming to be (Matt. 26:39, John 19:30, Heb. 10:4-14, Rev. 5:5-9). God’s description of Lucifer as a violent raging dragon is for us to understand just who this horrific monster is. He is our fiercest enemy (2 Cor. 4:4, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 Peter 5:8, Rev. 12:11). It is his sole desire - as in the Garden of Eden - to keep Almighty God’s creation and mankind doomed and under his tyrannical grasp for his own evil hyper narcissistic means (Heb. 2:14-15). You see, it is Lucifer's sole desire to receive the worship of Almighty God's creation - in heaven above and earth below - and to establish his kingdom of darkness FOREVER (Gen. 11, Isa. 14:12-15, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:2-3,  Rev. 13).

Lucifer through out Jesus Messiah’s life sought countless attempts on Jesus’ life – all to no avail - for Jesus must go to the Cross and fulfill His divine mission of REDEMPTION.

2000 years ago in Bethlehem of Judea a godless world was about its own way, OBLIVIOUS to Almighty God’s wondrous love and OBLIVIOUS to the demonic murderer’s grand intentions to destroy the only hope for mankind's salvation (Isa. 53:6, John 1:10, 3:17-17).

As we enter into another Christmas season, how many people today are also oblivious to the continued raging spiritual war that is in full engagement all around us? This great war is ever raging for the hearts, souls and minds of mankind and will climax at the Battle of Armageddon (Eph. 2:2-10, 6:12, Rev. 16:13-16). The Dragon still is EVER seeking to devour, deceive and destroy while Almighty God the ETERNAL Creator is EVER seeking to REDEEM and SAVE (John 3:16-17)! No wonder the multitudes of angelic hosts rejoiced that night 2000 years ago when the Savior of mankind was born (Matt. 1:21, Luke 2:8-14, Rom. 5:17). Almighty God gloriously fulfilled His promise to mankind in light of Satan’s continual opposition. My friend even now God has protected and kept us from the FULL WRATH of this raging dragon and has given ALL the opportunity to be delivered from this tyrannical monster, our fallen nature and the ETERNAL JUDGMENT of Almighty God on our transgressions against His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES (John 1:12, Acts 16:29-31, Eph. 2:2-10).

The Dragon still is seeking to devour, deceive and destroy while Almighty God the ETERNAL Creator is EVER seeking to redeem and save!

This Christmas season may you be sure that you truly know the Savior that Almighty God has provided for you. Lucifer the raging dragon is still seeking to destroy and devour as he did 2000 years ago on that first Christmas night but Almighty God is also seeking to deliver ALL who come to His promised Savior and Messiah. Oh beloved! That is truly what Christmas is all about!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Anti - Christmas Gift Giving at the Beginning of Anti Christ's Reign!




,
A time coming up very shortly of global gift giving will not be at Christmas but rather when the resuscitated Anti Christ - whose mortal wound has been  healed - will slay Almighty God's Two Witnesses at the end of their Divine ministry (Rev. 11:3-12). It will be for the world a Merry Anti-Christ -mas time as their hatred for Almighty God is at a zenith!

It will be for the world a Merry Anti-Christ -mas time as their hatred for Almighty God is at a zenith!

It will be after the execution of Almighty God's Two Witnesses that their dead bodies will be left in the streets of Jerusalem to rot for all the world to see (Rev. 11:7-10). The dead bodies of Almighty God’s Two Witnesses are to be a sobering warning to all nations and their inhabitants of what will happen to any who opposes this madman’s satanic godless designs for the world (Rev. 13). As these two bodies lay in the streets the world will greatly rejoice at the barbaric murder of these two messengers of RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rev.11: 7-11)! Their greatest two enemies who stood in the way of their godless desires and godless utopian visions have finally been destroyed! WE ARE FREE!! will be their global chant. The godless world will have a great "Christ-less Christmas" celebration – as it were - and send great gifts to one another as a token of their "liberty" (Rev. 11:7-10). This execution of Almighty God's Two Messengers will temporarily enhance the power and authority of the Beast (Anti-Christ) and solidify his global base (Rev. 13, 17:11-12, 17)! The repeated global chant of the unregenerate masses will be: "Who can make war with our great leader?!! For he has destroyed Almighty God's UNDEFEATABLE ENEMIES and NOTHING can stop us now from doing all that we imagine  to do (Gen. 11: 6,Rev. 13:4, 8)!" It will be at the height of their delusional godless exceeding great joy that something will transpire that will UTTERLY HORRIFY the world’s LAWLESS inhabitants and send ETERNAL fear and dread into their black and godless hearts.
.
The world will greatly rejoice at the barbaric murder of these two men! The Two Witnesses of Almighty God have finally been destroyed! The godless world will have a "Christ-less Christmas" celebration and send gifts to one another.

They Are Alive!!
.
As the three and a half days have gone by - after the barbaric and brutal murders of Almighty God's two powerful Witnesses - they are resuscitated by ALMIGHTY GOD in the presence of ALL of the world and ascend up into Heaven right before their wicked eyes (Rev. 11:11-12)! This horrific sobering event will send absolute horror and fear into the hearts and minds of the entire world, for they KNOW now without a shadow of a doubt that their doom is absolutely sealed and all the prophetic truths of Almighty God's Two Witnesses are guaranteed to be as they have stated. For even in this SUPERNATURAL WONDROUS event the world's inhabitants will double down and will still not repent nor give glory to Almighty God their Creator and be saved." (Rev. 11:11, 12). It will be at this time that the Beast will then cause ALL to take his mark and whosoever does - in light of ALL of the EXPONENTIAL Divine revelation - will seal their doom and can NEVER be delivered. For they have REJECTED the love of the TRUTH and they are hopelessly FOREVER doomed (2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 14:9-11)!
,, 
As the three and a half days have gone by after the barbaric and brutal murders of Almighty God's Two powerful Witnesses they are resuscitated by ALMIGHTY GOD in the presence of ALL of the world and ascend up into Heaven right before their wicked eyes.

Cast Out!
.

It will also be at this time that Lucifer and his remaining host are cast out of heaven and confined to planet earth (Dan. 2:41-43, Rev. 12:7-17, Rev. 18:2)! He is know FULLY aware that his time is VERY, VERY short and he is EXPONENTIALLY raging, wrathful and violent! With Lucifer’s new fascist world leader (i.e., the Anti Christ) established and in absolute global charge of the physical world, he is ready to roll with the FINAL global demonic agenda for planet earth (Rev. 13, 18:2). He (Lucifer) has waited patiently for this very moment and now it is go time to attempt to fulfill his delusional godless designs for fallen angels and fallen man (Gen. 11:1-6, Isa. 14:12-15). With all his (the anti Christ) mighty enemies eliminated and with the possession of the absolute devotion of the world secured, the ultimate power-grab and godless coup of all time and ETERNITY has taken place. Lucifer’s establishment of “The Abomination of Desolation” and the 666 global state (Matt. 24:15; Mark 13:14-15; 2 Thess. 2:3-5; Rev. 13:4) will now be the law of the world for three and one half years (Rev. 13:5)! Any who opposes Lucifer and his Anti Christ are to be put to death (Rev. 13)! Fascist FEAR and VIOLENCE and demonic dominance will be the ingredients to hold this very very fragile (iron and clay) empire in place (Dan. 2:41-43, Rev. 13, 18:2). It will be at this time that ALL Hell will literally break loose throughout the world (Rev. 12:12, 18:2). WOE! WOE!! WOE!!! unto ALL those who are alive at this time! “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matt. 24:21)
.
The Good News

Not to leave these future events in a dire ending for the Bible clearly teaches us that the Anti Christ and Lucifer will be defeated at Armageddon at the Lord Jesus Christ’s GLORIOUS SECOND COMING! (Dan. 7:43-44, 7:13-14, 2 Thess. 2:8, Rev. 19:11-21)!

My friend, The Day of the Lord is at hand! Will you be ready? Do not put off business with the Savior, do it today! For if you cannot do so now, whatever EVER makes you think that you will do it then when such global calamity will engulf the world.

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If not, trust Him today! Quit hiding in
fearfulness and receive Him today. Only Christ can TRULY set you FREE (John 8:32,36).
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Rev. 3:20).


The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Mary of Nazareth As The Bible Defines Her



















This study seeks to present from God's Holy Word what the Bible teaches about Mary of Nazareth, the young Jewish virgin that bore the Messiah, the Savior of the World. In this study we will seek to look at EVERY Bible verse found in the Holy Scriptures that pertains to Mary of Nazareth. Be sure to check out all the links for this study, for they will provide a deeper perspective into the person of Mary.
.
Introduction
.
In beginning this study, the clarifying statement should be made that the Bible, God’s infallible (reliable) and immaculate (perfect) Word, is the FINAL AUTHORITY when it comes to ALL matters pertaining to the truth of Christianity, which includes Mary (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16).

The Lord Jesus Christ gave countless warnings to BEWARE of false teachers and false teachings. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man DECEIVE YOU (Gospel of Saint Matthew 24:4).

Saint Paul also warned us to BEWARE of false teachings and fables. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables (2 Timothy 4:2-4).

Many dear, sincere people trust for their ETERNAL destiny in observing "Christian traditions," performing "good works" and having a "denominational upbringing" instead of BELIEVING and TRUSTING the Word of Almighty God (2 Tim. 3:14-4:5). The Lord Jesus issued serious warnings about practicing the vain traditions of men instead of holding to the sound eternal absolutes and spiritual laws found in Almighty God's Holy Word (St. Matt. 7:21-23).

Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition (St. Mark 7:7-9).

Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (St. Matthew 15:6b-9).

We also read in God's Word about the positive example of the Bereans. They (The Bereans)received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore many of them believed" (Acts 17:11b-12a).
Again, God's Word is the ABSOLUTE FINAL authority when it comes to any subject or teaching found in Christianity. The Bible states in regard to God's Word: For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89).
.
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever (Psalm 119:160). Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away (St. Matthew 24:35).

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe (1 Thess. 2:13).

He that is of God heareth God's words (St. John 8:47). May it be your sincere desire not to allow your own feelings to cloud your reason regarding this very delicate subject relating to Mary of Nazareth. By having faith in Almighty God (Heb. 11:6), i.e., by believing on God and His Word, may the Holy Spirit guide you into all truth (St. John 16:12-13). Whatever your thoughts, traditions or teachings about Mary (or Miriam in the Hebrew) of Nazareth, they MUST be defined by and align themselves with the Holy Scriptures. Again, the objective of this study is to present what God's Holy Word, the Bible, teaches about Mary of Nazareth.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Rom 10:17).

The Humanity of Mary

And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate (to look with pity on her vile condition) of his handmaiden (slave): for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation (St. Luke 1:45-49).

Mary offered a burnt offering and a sin offering for an atonement after her purification (Leviticus 12:1-8). And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons (St. Luke 2:22-24).
.
These passages reveal that Mary was a sinner in need of a Savior!

The Use of the Term "Woman" by the Lord Jesus in Regard to Mary

Nowhere in the New Testament is there found the occasion where the Lord Jesus called His "human" mother Mary, "Mother." We only find that He called her "Woman" (St. John 2:1-4; 19:25-27). There are distinctions given by the Gospel writers (2 Peter 1:20-21) that reveal Mary as the mother of Jesus’ human nature, but again the term "mother" was never used by Jesus when addressing Mary. We have absolutely NO record of that. Mary was a created being and the Lord Jesus was the ETERNAL Creator (St. John 1:1-3; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:1-3). This practice was not belittling to motherhood in general or derogatory to Mary herself in any way, shape or form. The Lord Jesus was helping Mary to understand that the Son of her womb (the flesh) was housing the ETERNAL Son of the Highest sent from Heaven above (St. John 1:1-14; Isaiah 9:6; Micah 5:2). Mary had only given birth to PROVIDE a perfect human body (by passing fallen man's seed) to house the ETERNAL Person of the Son of God for His great mission here on planet earth, redemption for Adam's fallen race (St. John 1:14; Rom. 5:12-21, Heb. 2:14-15; 10:5, 12:1-3).

The Lord Jesus the perfect and complete egg














Adam's fallen race including Mary


,









Jesus was (and is) the Perfect Son of God (St. John 1:1-3), God in the flesh (St. John 1:14) and the Savior of the World for all humanity and even Mary (St. Luke 1:45-49). This title of "woman" given by Jesus was a constant reminder to and for Mary (Miriam) that Jesus born of her flesh was absolutely different and holy (perfect and set apart) frm her and all of Adam's fallen race. Jesus was not like any of her other children or any other of Adam's IMPERFECT fallen race (St. Luke 1:31-32; Rom. 5:12-19). He was the PERFECT Son of Almighty God dwelling in a PERFECT human body (St. John 8:46; 1 Peter 3:18). The heavenly assignment given to Mary by Almighty God would not be an easy one, as the Holy Scriptures tell us.
,
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart (St. Luke 2:18-19).

And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed (St. Luke 2:34-35).

And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? And they understood not the saying which he spoke unto them. And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart (St. Luke 2:48-51).

And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother (Mark 3:35).

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home(St. John 19:25-27).
.
(This last passage is pertinent to understanding why Jesus used the term "woman" when addressing Mary, i.e., to communicate that his relationship with his earthly mother would not be permanent, only temporary.)

The Virgin-Born Birth of The Savior of the World
.
And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy (Lucifer's) seed and her (Eve's, later Mary's) seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:13-15).

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us (St. Matthew 1:20-23).

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (Luke 1:31-35).
.
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law (Gal 4:4).
.
Almighty God (the Father) BYPASSED the seed of fallen man by the POWER and OVERSHADOWING of the Holy Spirit (St. Luke 1:35). This Divine action PREVENTED the fallen traits and corruption of Adam's FALLEN race (Gen. 5:3; Romans 3:23; 5:12-19) from CONTAMINATING the PERFECT housing (body of flesh) for the Person of the Son of God to tangibly dwell here on planet earth (Micah 5:2; St. Luke 1:35; St. John 1:14; Heb. 10:5; 1 Peter 1:19).
'
The Non-Perpetual Virginity of Mary after the Lord Jesus' Birth
.
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together (i.e., had intimate physical relations), she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not (refers to sexual intimacy of the God-ordained marital union) till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS (St. Matthew 1:18-25).

And she brought forth her firstborn (implies the first with more following after) son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn (St. Luke 2:7).

Mary and Joseph's Children

I am become a stranger to my brothers, and an alien to my mother's children (Psalm 69:8).
.
And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? (Matthew 13:53-55).
.
“When the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him” (St. Mark 6:1-3).

After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days (St. John 2:12).
.
His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For neither did his brethren believe in him. Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come (St. John 7:3-8).

And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren (Acts 1:13-14).

There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother (St. Mark 3:31-35).

And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid (St. Mark 15:47).

And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him (St. Mark 16:1).

Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s children. When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus (Matthew 27:56-58).

Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother (Galatians 1:19).

Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied (St. Jude 1:1-2).

The Book of James and the Book of Jude were written by the half-brothers of Jesus, i.e., Mary’s children fathered by Joseph. Also, James the half-brother of Jesus was one of the early leaders of the Church at Jerusalem (Acts 15:13-21).

Mary's Life after the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ
.
During the crucifixion of Christ on the cross, John is given guardianship of Mary and her family by her firstborn son, Jesus.

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home (St. John 19:26-27).

Mary and her family were present with the disciples at Pentecost and were also included with the Church at Jerusalem.
/
And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. (Acts 1:13, 14)

NOTE: All words in bold print in the following section refer directly to the disciples and church age believers (including Mary).

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord (including Mary) in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:1-4).
.
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and were done by the apostles. And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved (Acts 2:42-47).
 
Mary, the Rapture and the ETERNAL State

Mary eventually died and was buried and her soul and spirit received into her Savior's presence; as all blood brought saints of the Church age are in death; awaiting their new ETERNAL spiritual body (Psalm 116:15, Acts 7:55-60, 1 Cor 15, Cor.2 Cor. 5:6-8, Phil. 1:23, 1 John 3:1-4); and then (in the fullness of time) Mary will be FOREVER changed in the likeness of her Savior at the Rapture of the Church with all the blood brought saints of the Church age (1 John 3:1-4).
NOTE: All words in bold print in the following section refer to "church age" believers (including Mary).

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:51-57).

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons (children) of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons (children) of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure (1 John 3:1-3).

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away (Rev. 21:3-4).

And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever (Revelation 22:1-5).

And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of. life (Rev. 21:27).

And the Spirit and the bride (the Church) say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely (Rev. 22:17).

Conclusion

The Scripture verses presented here consisted of ALL the scripture verses that mention Mary of Nazareth. The many traditions of Mary - her intercessory prayers, her immaculate birth and sinless life (or state of perfection), her perpetual virginity, her ascension into Heaven, her immaculate heart, etc. are NOWHERE TO BE FOUND in the Holy Scriptures. Relatively speaking, very little is mentioned about Mary in the New Testament. These false doctrines, teachings, fables and traditions passed down through the centuries have originated and been enlarged upon by the traditions of men and the Catholic Church. These fables were not given by Almighty God. In fact, these teachings contradict the Holy Scriptures and its Divine authority. They are at the very heart of Satan's lies and deception to mislead men and women from faith in the Savior of the world.

To again clarify, this study was not done to belittle any one's personal beliefs, but only to expose the heretical falsehoods pertaining to the church traditions and teachings of Mary of Nazareth. It is our deepest desire to encourage people to BELIEVE the Holy Scriptures and to REJECT any teachings and traditions of men which contradict the Holy Scriptures. May it be your sincere desire to acknowledge Mary as she is; a wonderful and faithful servant of Almighty God (Luke 1:28).  May Jesus Christ ONLY be exalted and lifted up in our hearts and lives.

St. Peter stated in 2 Peter 1: 20-21: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. And St. Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:12-17: Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

The Bible, God’s infallible and immaculate Word, is the ABSOLUTE and FINAL AUTHORITY for all matters relating to spiritual truth (doctrine) about God, Jesus, sin, salvation, Mary, etc. May it be your sincere desire to be governed by the Holy Scriptures and NOT by the traditions of men (St. Matt. 15; St. Mark 7). The true (Biblical) Mary would surely want you to!.
