Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ - Take the Gospel of John Challenge

 












Who do you say that Jesus is? Do your thoughts, upbringing, religious background, or personal beliefs about Jesus line up with God’s Christ of the HOLY SCRIPTURES? You might ask, “Well, does it make a difference? My friend, I say unto you, it surely does!

TAKE THE JESUS CHALLENGE

The Bible is the final AUTHORITY on who Jesus Christ is. It is God’s absolute instruction manual and blueprint for life. If you reject the authority of the Word of God, my friend, you are doomed. There is no hope for your lost, sinful condition. The Bible teaches that “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). All! You need to know the True Savior, not a make-believe one. It’s that serious. Don’t let your deceitful heart and pride ruin you and keep you from God’s redemption found in Jesus Christ.

Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ!

Jesus said, "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and they are they which testify [speak] of me" (John 5:39).

The purpose of this Bible study is to bring a person through God’s simple plan of salvation using only the Gospel of John. When a Gospel of John is handed out to a person, it is a good idea to give the person this study along with it. The study was written in such a way (question/ answer format) that the person can see for themselves what the Bible really says about who Jesus Christ is, what He has done for us, and the necessity of putting our faith in Him.

For the person doing this study, please answer the following questions by looking up the Bible verses which are given, all of which can be found in the Gospel of John.

Blah, Blah, Blah...?

No doubt our message here at the IFB concerning our nation is becoming very repetitive and "blah, blah, blah" to some of our visitors, but was not this also the same message in Jeremiah's day before Babylon came in to level and ravish Jerusalem (Jer. 6, 7, 15:1, Ezek. 14:14, 21)? The message then was not popular and neither is this one today. Hear me my dear friends...  I beg you, as a voice shouting in the wilderness, Almighty God has already given this nation over to His Divine judgment and once this has begun who can abide and let alone stop it? In our dire hour DO NOT be deceived and seek to pray for our nation any more, for we are well pass the point of no return. Almighty God the RIGHTEOUS Judge of ETERNITY has now become our nation's RIGHTEOUS Adversary and WOE! WOE! WOE unto America!

However dearly beloved, pray fervently in these hours that individuals will wake up to the REALITY of our hour and their desperate need of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUSNESS and be saved!

However dearly beloved, pray fervently in these hours that individuals will wake up to the REALITY of our hour and their desperate need of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUSNESS and be saved! The upcoming seven tribulation will begin because the Age of Grace will have come to a stone hearted end - being that there are no more in this dispensational time block which will hear the global message of Almighty God's wondrous grace and mercy. All that is now left for our nation and world is Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS WRATH (Isa. 24, Matt. 24, Rev. 6-19). Do your part as an American, May God help us... but DO NOT trust in it at ALL any more, for the Day of the Lord is at hand and who then will be able to stand and let alone stop the global EXPONENTIAL CATASTROPHIC tsunami which is heading our way (Isa. 24, Matt. 24, Rev. 6-19).

Beloved, Be strong in the Lord and rejoice in His PERFECT salvation and RIGHTEOUSNESS!

God speed for Almighty God's glory!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

America's ONLY Hope














As we see our nation wither away and our nation’s social landscape ravished beyond all repair, do not let your hearts be troubled (John 14:1). Do not deceive yourselves in these last days as millions are by putting all of their eggs in the basket of the Democratic and Republican Party. There is ABSOLUTELY no hope there in saving this sinking titanic from going to the bottom of the sea. America, your ONLY hope is in the Savior of the world. O nations of the world, your ONLY hope is in the Savior of the world (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, 16:29-31, Rev. 5:9, 21, 22:1-5). America will not survive and in its collapse we will see a horrific seven year tribulation that will engulf the entire world (Rev. 6-19). My friends the reality is that the Four Horsemen are at the very door (Rev. 6)!
.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO ESCAPE from what is at the door. These things ALL MUST come to pass as Almighty God’s Word has testified to.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO ESCAPE from what is at the door. These things ALL MUST come to pass as Almighty God’s Word has testified to (Rev. 22:20). My dear friend, have faith in Almighty God and the simplicity of His PERFECT Word and He will set you FREE (Mark 11:22, Heb. 11:1,6). Beloved, Do not let your hearts be troubled, believe in Him and place ALL your trust in Him for it is in Jesus Christ ALONE that there is EVERLASTING HOPE and FULL ASSURANCE (Acts 4:12, Rom. 1:16, Col. 2:2, 2 Tim. 1:12). Do your part to the fullest as an America in these last days all the while knowing that NOTHING will stop the Day of Lawlessness, the Lord Jesus’ glorious second coming and the establishment of His 1000 year reign in TRUTH and RIGHTEOUSNESS! Be sure to see the BIG PICTURE first then all will fall into place! ETERNITY with our Savior is our future, NOT this fallen demonic wasteland called planet earth. The TRUTH will indeed set you free from the bondage and tyranny of Satan and his many faceted straw men, which are set up out there to distract you from the Savior and what is at hand (John 8:32, 36, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Col 3:1-4)! Beloved use all of these things to draw you EVER closer to the Savior and never let your heart be troubled, for you safe as can be in His hands FOREVERMORE (Matt. 28:20, Luke 12:7, John 10:28, 14:18, Rom. 8:28-39, Rev. 1:17-18).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Biblical Teaching Regarding Climate Change - Psalm 147:5-18

Climate change is a “hot” topic these days and we have a brief biblical outline and perspective on this matter which is much needed today. To properly understand this topic we must view this subject from Almighty God our Creator's point of view and perspective lest we be misled by our emotions, junk science, the god of this world, his minions and the hysteria of our day (Psalm 119:105, 2 Cor. 11:13-14, Eph. 6:12).

Consider these facts:
.
1.) The ETERNAL SOVEREIGN God and Creator controls every aspect of the weather on planet earth. Climate IS the Lord’s obedient slave: “Fire, and hail; snow, and vapors, stormy wind fulfilling His Word” (Psalm 148:8).
.
2.) The constancy of the seasons and the general stability of the weather IS GUARANTEED by Almighty God in the Noahic covenant (Gen.8:22): “While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
.
3.) When the nation Israel disobeyed Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS laws and ordinances, they were justly placed under His RIGHTEOUS curses which included serious famine and weather problems (Deuteronomy 28).
.
4.) It is the absolute height of pride for man to think that his actions or lack of actions will affect this earth’s climate in any significant way (Isaiah 2:12, 22).
.
5.) In the up coming seven year tribulation period after the Rapture of the Body of Christ (Isa. 24, Matt 24, Rev. 6-19) there will be severe global plagues which will EXPONENTIALLY and  CATASTROPHICALLY affect the entire environment and climate of planet earth. These plagues will include severe famine (Rev. 6:5-6), destruction of vegetation and sea life (Rev. 8:7, 9), seas and rivers turning to blood (Rev. 16:3-4) and unparalleled global warming (Rev. 16:8-9).
.
6.) In the Kingdom Age of Jesus Christ - which will be established after Christ's second coming to planet earth - the weather will be ideal and the environment will be Edenic (Isa. 11). However, even in the millennial reign of Jesus Christ, those who openly disobey and disregard Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS moral and spiritual absolutes and laws will face serious consequences relating to the weather. For example; Almighty God will withhold rain from any nation which seeks not to honor their Creator's RIGHTEOUS mandates (Zechariah 14:16-19).
.
7.) Following the Kingdom Age and reign of Jesus Christ, Almighty God will then finally destroy the present day heavens and earth with extreme nuclear heat and melt and dissolve the entire universe: “the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10). It will be then Almighty God will create a NEW Heavens and earth which shall be INCORRUPTIBLE, RIGHTEOUS and ETERNAL for the redeemed throughout the ages of time to live in FOREVERMORE and to serve and enjoy their ETERNAL Creator in RIGHTEOUSNESS, REALITY and TRUTH (Isa. 65:17; 66:22, 2 Peter 3:13, Rev. 21;22:1-5).
.
Ah my dear friends, the puny efforts of godless men and nations will NEVER EVER alter these seven Biblical certainties. May we today be found trusting and serving Almighty God our ETERNAL Creator in Spirit and truth, who is the ETERNAL Owner and Master (Lord) of this planet and world  (Psalm 24:1), the His earth’s soon coming RIGHTEOUS King and Judge!
.
“Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness?” (2 Pet. 3:11)
.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

America - Be Ye Saved!























O America (Americans)! We are at the very door of fiscal and social implosion. Almighty God cries out to ALL to repent and be saved! ONLY in Almighty God is there deliverance from the corruptions of this fallen world and hope for ETERNITY (Gal. 1:4). As we see our day deteriorating right before our very eyes, may Almighty God and His Word be our strength and consolation in these very uncertain times. For one thing is VERY certain, the Rapture is at hand, then the Day of Almighty Wrath and then... the establishment of Almighty God's Kingdom of RIGHTEOUSNESS! Will you be ready?

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Almighty God's Definition of True Beauty?














My Beloved, where is true beauty found today? In People Magazine’s Most Beautiful People edition? In the natural genetic beauty of Hollywood and the Music industries’ A-list? In Donald Trump’s Miss America beauty pageants? In the high school cliques of the most popular teens? Nope, it’s not there... not at all! As a matter of fact, some of the most genetically - temporal flowers of the field - most "beautiful" people are some of the most godless, vilest, immoral and lawless of them all.

Where is true beauty to be found then? Well, there is a temporal, natural beauty possessed by a select number of people. There is no denying that. The truth of the matter is that these individuals did absolutely nothing to obtain this “outward” form of beauty. In the end this beauty is short-lived and vain (Proverbs 31:30).

Consider some examples of past “beauties”: Liz TaylorClark Gable, Cary Grant, James Dean, Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, etc. Their human beauty shone in the sun for a short while, and they withered away and died as a rose of summer. They bloomed and then faded FOREVER away (Eccl. 3:11; Isaiah 40:7; Rom. 3:23, 1 Cor. 15:50, James 4:14).
.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

The Need for True Beauty

Almighty God makes it absolutely clear in His infallible Word to fallen humanity (Rom. 5:12-19) their desperate need for TRUE beauty. This beauty is not a temporal, vain expression of mortal man or woman. True (Divine) beauty endures FOREVER and EVER. This beauty waxes exceedingly more beautiful as time goes on. This beauty endures beyond the boundaries of time, and all who possess it will enjoy it FOREVER and EVER (Dan. 12:3; 1 Cor. 2:9; 15:42-57; Rev. 22:5).

Where is this beauty to be found? Through 6000 years of human existence, billions have sought worldly beauty and the prestige it brings. Countless individuals have sold their souls for beauty and immortality ONLY to go the way of all the earth in the end (Heb 9:27). Oh, the endless volumes of testimonials that could be given by mortal men and women throughout the ages attesting to the futility of this fruitless quest (Psalms 39:5; 78:33; Eccl. 1:1-3). Such have put all their eggs in this fragile basket and have died bankrupt, miserable and hideous in the eyes of their ETERNAL Creator/ Maker. They will FOREVER dwell in their shame and vile estate (Rev. 22:11).

Beloved, Time - and our earthly existence in it - is just a vapor, a grain of sand in the endless sea of ETERNITY'S FOREVERNESS (Psalms 39:5; 78:39; 90:10; 144:4; Isaiah 40:6; James 4:14; 1 Peter 1:24). Oh, that people would look outside of their temporal, subjective, narcissist world-view and see the reality. Oh, that we might look objectively into the Word of Almighty God for true answers about the unknown mysteries of this fallen world (1 Cor. 1:30). We would then begin to comprehend the unsolved mysteries of time and life, and be set free from the limited confines of this fallen world (John 8:32, 36).

This pinnacle of wondrous Beauty is nothing less than the glorious Righteousness that Almighty God has provided for His Fallen Creation. This Beauty is found nowhere else but in Christ Jesus, the Savior of the Whole World.

What is True Beauty?
.
What exactly is this True Beauty, one might ask? Quite simply, True Beauty is a gift from Almighty God (Rom. 5:16-17; 6:23). The FREE GIFT of TRUE beauty is provided to all by Almighty God (1 Cor. 1:30). TRUE beauty is our greatest need in the light of ETERNITY'S fixedness and FOREVERNESS.

This pinnacle of wondrous beauty is nothing less than the glorious RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God has provided for His fallen creation. This Beauty is found nowhere else but in Christ Jesus, the Savior of the whole world (Rom. 10:4; 2 Cor. 5:21).

"Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints" (Rev 19:6-8).

When one places their absolute trust in Jesus Christ and His saving grace, that individual is given the BEAUTY of the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and ETERNAL Life (Psalms 7:17; 90:17; John 3:16,17).

God takes on Himself our shame and sinful hideousness, and He bestows on us the BEAUTY of His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Psalms 17:15; Isaiah 61:1-3; 64:6; Rom. 4:6, 22-24; 5:4; 1 Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 5:17; 1 John 3:2).

Oh, how will the redeemed of Almighty God shine and rejoice forever in the ETERNAL BEAUTY of the Lord! (Dan. 12:3; Matt. 13:43; 1 Cor. 2:9).

What About You?
.
May I ask you this very sobering question? Do you possess the Beauty of Righteousness that is found only in Jesus Christ? The Bible states in Isaiah 64:6 that “all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags [bloody menstrual cloths].” All earthly beauty will fade away, as countless billions have experienced and could testify. Only the Beauty of Almighty God’s Righteousness (state of perfection) will endure forever (Matt. 13:43; Rev. 22:11).

You do not know what will happen tomorrow (Proverbs 27:1). If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, may you do so even now by making that conscious decision to receive Him into your heart and life. Then shall your beauty endure FOREVER as the stars of FOREVER, and bliss and joy will you know forevermore (Matt 13:43; 1 Cor. 2:9). Place your trust in Him TODAY. Behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2)! You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
