In This Hour, See the ETERNAL in ALL Things!

 

Beloved, indeed, the GREAT DAY of the LORD is very nigh unto us as a world and as we today live in our EXPONENTIAL godless and lawless day, we must see and possess the Divine ETERNAL REALITIES in ALL things, and apply them all by faith in this very temporal and perishing world for Almighty God's glory (John 1:12; 3:16-17; 10:25-30, Rom. 8:26-39, Eph. 3:20-21, Col. 3:1-4, Heb. 9:27; 11:6; 1 John 3:1-3, Rev. 3:8)

Beloved, indeed, the GREAT DAY of the LORD is very nigh unto us as a world!

This ETERNALLY dying world crucially and absolutely needs to behold the risen Savior of the world. In our sincere ETERNAL concern for their lost souls seek opportunities to be a light for our precious Savior in such days. Again my beloved, see the Divine ETERNAL REALITY in all things and you will find the liberation and peace of Almighty God that will calm your hearts in America's last hours. Indeed; be seeking God's will and be redeeming the time for Jesus; for indeed the days are evil (Eph. 5:16-17). God's speed and Maranatha!


The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The GREATEST STUDY on the TWO WITNESSES of Revelation! Who are They? The Absolute Amazing Background to The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 and Their Ministry Preparing Israel for the Fulfillment of the Day of Atonement! Zech. 12:10-14! By Dr. John Whitcomb

 










The Absolute Amazing Background to ‘The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11' - By Dr. John Whitcomb - Link to Dr. Whitcomb's Bible study on the Two Witnesses.

Beloved, this absolutely amazing Bible study on the Two Witnesses of Revelation and their three and one half year ministry; which will lead to the repentance; conversion and salvation of Israel at Messiah's glorious Second Coming; fulfilling the Day of Atonement (Zech. 12:10-14; Rom. 9-11; Rev. 19:11-21); is a powerful affirmation and confirmation of the truthfulness and integrity of the Word of Almighty God throughout the ages! In this study, you will see how Almighty God will gloriously use these two saints of old to begin the process of restoration with the God of Israel and the seed of Abraham (Mal. 4; Rev. 11)!

Beloved; the dearest and most amazing man that Almighty God has used in the 20th century has to be Dr. John Whitcomb. A dear, sweet down to earth man who gave all of his genetic genius to his ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and Savior to use for His ETERNAL glory (Gal. 2:20). I got to meet Dr. Whitcomb and pick him up at the airport many times and found him always down to earth, genuine and sincere; Dr. Whitcomb had a great love for his Jesus and a great passion for souls and the Word of Almighty God! This amazing study on the background to the Two Witnesses of Revelation is an absolute masterpiece derived from years of walking with His Savior and countless hours in prayer and in the Word of Almighty God. This study answers all of the tough questions about the Two Witnesses and provides tremendous insight into who they are, their character, and their astonishing ministry in the first half of the seven-year Tribulation after the Rapture of the Church (Rev. 11). 

Beloved or "Dear friends" as Dr. Whitcomb would say; be sure to check out this audio sermon on the Two Witnesses, for indeed their neglected ministry by many pre tribbers today is a stain on the prophetic future truths of Almighty God, Israel, and the Kingdom of Almighty God!

Indeed, the Day of the Lord is at hand and Almighty God's Kingdom to follow!

The Life of Professor John C. Whitcomb
June 1924 – February 2020
 
Professor John Clement Whitcomb Jr., Th.D., was born on June 22, 1924, in Washington, D.C., to John Clement and Salome Josephine Whitcomb.  He was the only child in a military family, growing up in Tientsin, China (1927-1930), Fort Leavenworth, Kansas (1930-1933), Seattle, Washington (1933-1939), and Fort Benning, Georgia.  He attended McCallie Military Academy in Chattanooga, Tennessee (1940-1942), where he excelled scholastically.  He was then accepted to Princeton University with a career goal of becoming an American Ambassador.  During his freshman year, he met Dr. Donald Fullerton of Princeton Evangelical Fellowship, and he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  This changed his life, resulting in the decision to be a missionary.
 
In 1942, John was drafted into the US Army and served in the 909th Field Artillery Battalion, 84th Infantry, which fought in the Battle of the Bulge at Marche, Belgium.  He returned to Princeton University and graduated with honors (1948). He then attended Grace Theological Seminary from 1948-1951 in Winona Lake, Indiana (M.Div.), with plans to return to China as a missionary.  When the Lord closed the doors to China, he opened another door when the President of Grace Seminary, Dr. Alva J. McClain, offered him a faculty position.
 
Two years later, he met his first wife, Edisene Hanson, at a Bible conference, and they married in 1953. They had 4 children—David, Donald (Don), Constance (Connie) and Robert (Bob).  Edisene developed an autoimmune liver disease and died in 1970 at the age of forty.  About the same time, Norma Pritchett’s husband, who was a doctoral student at Grace Seminary, suddenly died of a heart attack.  Norma had two sons, Daniel (Dan) and Timothy (Tim), who were the ages of Dr. Whitcomb’s children.  John and Norma later married, uniting the families in January 1971. 
 
John was a professor of the Old Testament at Grace Seminary for nearly forty years and served as the director of postgraduate studies.  He and Norma founded Whitcomb Ministries in 1990.  From 2016 until his death, he held the title of President Emeritus.
 
As an author, he published over twenty books on the Bible and science; commentaries on multiple books of the Bible, eschatology, and other topics; and numerous technical articles.  His M.Div. defense of the historical accuracy of the book of Daniel (Darius the Mede, 1959) and his Th.D. defense of a literal six-day creation and world-wide flood (The Genesis Flood, published with
Dr. Henry Morris, 1961) remain the definitive works on these subjects.  The Genesis Flood became a classic and is the foundation of the modern Creationist movement.  He also developed a series of chronological Bible history charts that revolutionized Bible study around the world.  They remain widely used today.    
 
Throughout his entire life, Professor Whitcomb was heavily involved in foreign missions, including serving as Chairman of the Board for both the Spanish World Gospel Mission and Grace Brethren Missions.  He made many international trips over the years to support these efforts. 
 
Although internationally acclaimed, Professor Whitcomb remained a humble, gentle, approachable, and caring man. He loved humor.  He had a quick, subtle wit and would roar with laughter at a good joke.  He was also brilliant.  But, as one Christian leader remarked, “Although he was intellectually high above everybody else, he had a way of taking complex truths and making them applicable and exciting to people.” 
 
He approached the Scriptures with an awe, reverence, and deep understanding that was also impactful to his students.  Professor Whitcomb’s life-guiding Bible verse was 2 Timothy 2:2— “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”  Thousands of his trainees are now teaching others throughout the world.
 
Professor Whitcomb never wanted positions of power. He, like a good soldier, wanted to please his commanders, and later, the great men of faith that preceded him. And he received true words of great praise from all of them. But there was one more accolade for which John Whitcomb was longing.  The one from his Heavenly Father, who on February 5, 2020, surely said, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
 
Professor Whitcomb is survived by his wife Norma and children Dan & Pam Pritchett, David and Chris Whitcomb, Tim Pritchett, Don and Kim Whitcomb, Connie and Mark Rosendahl, and Bob Whitcomb.  Grandchildren include Jessica, Laura, David, John, Jill, Jamie, Jocelyn, Janessa, Kian, Weston, Kelsey, Morgan, Josiah, Nathanael, Anna, Daniel, and Sarah and twelve great-grandchildren.

When the American Dam Breaks What Then America? What Then?

 ,











Beloved; America, which was founded during the Philadelphia Church Age (from about 1700 to about 1900 – the church of the “open door” – Rev 3:7-13), was established on the bedrock of natural and moral laws and foremost acknowledged the RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God at its founding. Beloved, just read the Declaration of Independence, our nation's precious birth certificate, and see for yourself how Almighty God was included! Oh, how the haters love to slander our founding and twist the truth of its inception! In the fullness of time, at the end of world history, some 4000 years after the Tower of Babel America was established for Almighty God's purpose and plan. Tragically after 246 years of our nation's history and journey, we have reached socially and culturally the point of no return! 

Dear friends, in a day of global EXPONENTIALISM in every facet of life, there is absolutely no time left to counter the EXPONENTIAL growth of lawlessness and godlessness of our day and its EXPONENTIAL ravishing of our nation due to the abandonment of sound moral principles and its restraints!

Dear friends, in a day of global EXPONENTIALISM in every facet of life, there is absolutely no time left to counter the EXPONENTIAL growth and spread of lawlessness and godlessness of our day and its EXPONENTIAL ravishing of our nation due to the abandonment of sound moral principles and its restraints. There is not enough time to put out the EXPONENTIALLY burning fires which consume our nation in lawlessness! Today's tragedy for millions of Americans is that we who live in this EXPONENTIAL deteriorating day are living at the end of America and it's a great experiment! Beloved, when America's dam breaks, what then for America and this world? What then? Today, America's only hope is to be found in a PERSON and that PERSON is the Lord Jesus Christ and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS salvation (John 3:16-17; 1 John 4:10)! We must see the ETERNAL today to understand our hour; for the Kingdom of Heaven is indeed at hand, with the seven years HORRIFIC Day of the Lord preceding it (Matt. 24; Rev. 6-19).

Dear friends, there is absolutely no time left to counter the EXPONENTIAL growth of lawlessness and godlessness of our day and its EXPONENTIAL ravishing of our nation due to the abandonment of sound moral principles and its restraints. There is not enough time to put out the EXPONENTIALLY burning fires which consume our nation in lawlessness! 

Dear friends, there has been no other nation in this world's history in which believers in Jesus Christ have sent out the ETERNAL Gospel LIGHT as America has! In our day of EXPONENTIAL technology, faithful believers in Jesus Christ are sending forth the ETERNAL Gospel LIGHT EXPONENTIALLY via all the mediums of our day, reaching billions before the Rapture of the Church! No day ever has seen such outreach and though the church its self is failing, faithful believers in Jesus Christ are able to reach ALL the world through these technological tools and mediums (Matt. 17:20, John 14:12, Gal. 2:20, Eph. 3:20-21, Rev. 3:8)! America, as a nation has been a beacon of freedom to the world's oppressed and has been a global dam holding back this world’s anti-Semitism, oppressive tyrannies, and the unbridled passions of fallen despots, especially in this last century. With her gone; what then? What then?

The Four Horsemen must ride America! They must ride! And WOE! WOE! WOE!

Dear friends, let me ask you this very sobering question, “What do you think will become of the world once America's restraining influence has been removed from the scene?” The very sobering answer is... GREAT global tribulation and global anti-Semitism (Zech 14:2, Rev 6-16). Just begin to read the Book of Revelation from chapters 6 to 19 and you will get a good enough picture of what will be! America in these last 60 years has truly given herself over to lawlessness, lewdness, godless pleasure-seeking, immorality, vice, abortion, anti-family values, godless ambitions, demonic euphemisms, and to the absolute hatred and disdain of biblical TRUTH and REALITIES (Eph. 2:1-2). Dear friends, when the American dam, which is holding back Satan and this world's EXPONENTIAL evil designs breaks at the Rapture, what then my friends? What then? 

What do you think will become of the world once America restraining influence has been removed from the scene?

Beloved, may we who personally know the Lord Jesus as our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Savior, pray with one Spirit that our Heavenly Father will give us His ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE and His DIVINE INSIGHT for our day and in this hour to be the bright burnings lights for Jesus that we so need to be; and that we might have eyes to see REALITY and TRUTH, not just from our position in Christ (Eph. 2:6, Col. 3:1-4, Rev 4-5), but also to comprehend our day and hour in which we live (Prov. 2:6, Matt. 7:7, James 1:5). Dear friend, if you are reading this post and know not the Lord Jesus; may you place your trust in Him today! In Jesus is ETERNAL hope!

Maranatha! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Do You Personally Truly Know Jesus?

 














My dear friend, do YOU personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? There is great pardon and forgiveness to all that call upon His name 
(Eph. 2:1-10, 2 Cor. 5:17-21)
As the Day of the Lord approaches ever more closely and man’s plague-laden remedies fail to contain the EXPONENTIAL fiscal and social damage and consequences unleashed today by man’s lawless addictions to the demons released from Pandora’s Box, May Almighty God be your refuge and strength! The Messiah (Christ) of Almighty God is America's inhabitants ONLY HOPE in these very turbulent days before the Day of the Lord FULLY arrives (Rev. 6-19). Be sure you personally know Him and His saving grace!

Truly, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Rapture - We Shall Be Changed!!!

Beloved; in an ever growing hopless world; we who know Jesus have the ETERNAL BLESSED HOPE to burn in our hearts in such days for ALL to see! The "Blessed Hope - Titus 2:11-13" or the Rapture of the Church is the great anticipation of those children of God who are looking for their Savior's soon coming for us in the air. For many centuries - from the early church until now - the saints of the Church Age - have been greatly anticipating their Savior's return and as the days draw closer the signs are everywhere that it could be at any moment!

No one can fully know the extent of our change but we do know this, that we will be changed and be like Him in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS!
 
How many believers today actually comprehend what will truly happen to us in that moment when the Last Trump sounds?  No one can fully know the extent of our change but we do know this, that we will be changed and be like Him in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS (1 John 3:1-3)! Oh my dear friends, that is the TRUE hope of every blood bought believer who is seeking their Savior's appearance! To be like Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS! The ETERNAL SON OF GOD in us; our ETERNAL HOPE of ETERNAL GLORY (Col. 1:27)!

No one can fully know the extent of our change but we do know this, that we will be changed and be like Him in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS!

My dear friends, we (as humans) are like a broken egg. When an egg is smashed and broken, who can put it perfectly back together again? In the beginning God created Adam perfect (like a whole, unbroken egg), but the transgression of our father Adam against the ETERNAL spiritual laws (absolutes) and physical natural laws of time caused him to die – both spiritually and physically (Gen. 3; 2:16-17; Rom. 5:12-19). Thus, because of Adam’s transgression all who are born in Adam (i.e., the entire human race) are born marred and  “broken” from Almighty God's original design (Gen. 1:31)

It is only in Jesus Messiah (the Savior of the world) that is found the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s HOLY and PERFECT Heaven!


It is only in Jesus Messiah (the Savior of the world) that is found the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s HOLY and PERFECT Heaven (John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). Almighty God has provided a PERFECT  solution to make atonement for the sins of the world and all who put their trust in Him will be saved from the wrath which is to come on ALL ungodliness (progressive- conservatism) (Matt. 1:20-21, Luke 1:30-35, John 1:14, Heb. 10:5, 1 Peter 1:19).

We who know Him will be caught up in the air to meet Him and we all shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye and FOREVER will we be with the Savior!
.
When we receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior by faith we receive the forgiveness and pardon of our transgressions, the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God's Savior, and ETERNAL LIFE (Isa. 1:18, John 3:16-17, 36, 1 Cor. 1:30, Col. 1:13-14)! Jesus came into the world to SAVE and REDEEM fallen man so that they may FOREVER live in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS with Almighty God the Father (Luke 9:56, John 10:10, Rom. 5:12-21, 1 Tim. 1:15, Rev. 21-22:1-5). My dear friends, I do not know anything more wonderful than that! And we who know Him (John 1:10, Acts 4:12) will be caught up in the air to meet Him and we all shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye and FOREVER will we be with the Savior!

Jesus came into the world to SAVE and REDEEM fallen man so that they may FOREVER live in PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS with Almighty God the Father!

This vile fallen body which is marred and ruined (Rom. 7:7-25) to PERFECTLY honor Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS demands will be changed to a RIGHTEOUS body as His (1 Cor. 15:51-58, Phil. 3:21, 1 John 3:1-3)! This may be the year the Trump will blow and what encouragement this is to redeem the time for Almighty God's glory (Eph. 5:16-17)! MARANATHA!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

They Sold Their Souls to Rock and Roll
















My whole life prior to 1992 (Eph. 2:2-3) was given solely over wholly to the rock music industry. From playing the music to that of absolutely following all aspects of the industry and culture as some of you who knew me well know. It was my identity in many ways and I sought to live it out in my unregenerate mind and blindness (Prov. 16:25, Eph. 2:1-3). As Almighty God began to get a hold of me, He started to redirect me by His Word and I then began to see the many faceted evils and vices of the whole music culture and life style.

I remember saying to myself - in the last days that I played in my band "Silent Desire" (1986-1992), What are you doing? Listen to the lyrics of the songs that you play. What are they saying? Look what the consequences of this life style and what it is doing to you and those who you care greatly about. I knew I had to leave it and I knew that Almighty God could not be honored in any way or blessed by it in my life by practicing such godlessness.

Look what the consequences of this life style and what it is doing to you and those who you care greatly about.

Up to this point in my young age I had lived a full life. After three years of challenging and wrestling with Almighty God and His Word; and trying to justify everything in my manner of living, at the age of twenty four I finally surrendered to the Lord and began to follow Jesus as my Lord and Savior (John 3:16.17). My final conclusion at that time was, Lord you were absolutely right! I need You and my actions were horrifically wrong. His grace and mercy showed and taught me how wrong I was and that God's long suffering to me lead me to repentance and ETERNAL life (2 Peter 3:9)! That was in the fall of October of 1992. Since then I have been truly blessed by Almighty God. He has blessed me and has filled my soul with His Wonderful ETERNAL Person and with His plan and future for my life. The music and all of its party lifestyle could never fill the ETERNAL void that possessed me. Only Almighty God can satisfy the famished soul of man (John 6).

In the end, I knew I would have to give an account to Almighty God and I would be doomed if I continued in my rebellion and sin against Him (Heb 9:27).

My final conclusion at that time was Lord you were absolutely right! I need You and my actions were horrifically wrong.

Before you label me a square or a nut, I would like to challenge you to objectively watch this brief series of documentaries on the music industry and its culture. On this web site you will see for yourself that there is something more sinister behind the whole godless music industry and life style then meets the eye (Eph 6:12). In the end, ask yourself this simple question. Is this what you want to truly serve?

Be brave, be objective and have courage to face the realities at hand. Then you will see what it is all about.

The Lord Jesus stated: You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).

And if the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed (John 8:36).

Put your faith and trust in Almighty God! He alone can satisfy. He alone can deliver! Put your trust in Him today. You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
