What Hope Is There For a Broken Egg?






















Almighty God did not forsake His lost creation. He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem man and to deliver them from their bondage and judgment of sin (their broken eggness/ trespasses).

The Bible states: "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosever (anyone and every one) believeth in him should not perish (will not die) but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).

'For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (a broken egg), and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh" (Rom 8:3).

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners (broken eggs), Christ died for us" (Rom. 5:8).

"Who (Christ) was delivered for our offences (broken actions), and was raised again for our justification" (Rom. 5:25).

"But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5).
.
There is great hope to all who look to Almighty God and His Son for deliverance!
,
God’s great desire is to redeem men and deliver us from the devastating consequences of sin. For all who put their trust in Him through Christ, He will exchange these “broken egg” natures and bodies of ours for new ones that will be completely perfect (1 John 3:1-2). These new, ETERNAL bodies will be capable of enjoying Almighty God as He is in perfect holiness and righteousness! (1 Cor. 15:42-57)

"Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption (broken egg-ness) into the glorious liberty (a perfectly complete egg) of the children of God" (Romans 8:21).

"So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption (broken egg-ness); it is raised in incorruption" (a perfectly complete egg) (1 Cor. 15:42).

"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away" (Rev. 21:1).

God has given to all of Adam’s fallen race a wonderful future and deliverance from our “broken egg” humanity. However, we must choose with our own free will to receive Almighty God’s pardon and gift of ETERNAL life (Eph. 2:8-9). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour? He alone can change your “broken egg” life to a perfect one.Place your trust in Him today! You will NEVER EVER be the same!

"And he (Jesus) said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God" (Luke 18:27).

The Kingdom of heaven is at hand!

The 77th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the Day of the Lord!

Today (December 7th) marks the 77th 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 (2018) 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!

So This Is X-mas/John Lennon - A Biblical Perspective



















Dear friends, I grew up in the world for 24 years before I came to Christ, so I know its thinking and ways because I once lived it and walked its course (Eph. 2:1-14). As I was at work today, they were playing the world's Christmas carols which have a secular and demonic mood to it of utopia through relativism and bankrupt human love; which excludes RIGHTEOUSNESS and Almighty God man's ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Rom. 1:18-32). One song that was played today was John Lennon's, So This Is X-mas (War is Over). I had to laugh as I listened to the words and praised the Lord from what He saved me from! This John Lennon song is a total swipe and dig at the TRUE biblical Christmas message and the rejection there of. Mr. "Peace" (John Lennon himself), seeks to encourage all through moral relativism and lawlessness to seek world peace, to end war and "love" one another as fallen humanity (Isa. 48:22; 49:1; 57:21, Rom. 3, Jude 1:10). Hey world, how has that idiocy worked out for humanity since the fall (Psalm 14, Rom. 3, James 4:1-4)? Think I'm being intolerant and cruel? My dear friends, I use to think just like that; for John Lennon was a hero of mine in the days of my vanity. That demonic mindset is a TOTAL DELUSION and how mankind loves to drink it in, especially during the Christmas holiday season! Satan's subtle counter Christmas message is alive in well on planet earth and because of global unbelief, it is received yearly. Tragically, as John Lennon goes, he is probably the world's leading musician advocate for "peace"; however, in the reprobate world of John Lennon, he NEVER found "peace" in this world and in the end was murdered by one of his fans.

 This song is a total swipe and dig at the TRUE biblical Christmas message and the rejection there of. Lennon seeks to encourage all through moral relativism and lawlessness to seek world peace, to end war and "love" one another as fallen humanity.

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 were 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 glass or 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).

 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!

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 Messiah in Hanukkah - Messianic Significance of Chanukah














The law did not require Jews to be at the Temple in Jerusalem, as this was not one of the pilgrimage festivals. Every one observed it in his own place, not as a holy time. Jesus was there that He might improve those eight days of holiday for good purposes.

Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch when the Sadduciens asked him “How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ tell us.” They pretended to want to know the truth, as if they were ready to embrace it; but it was not their intention. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (John 10:25-27). He had told them, and they believed not; why then should they be told again, merely to gratify their curiosity?

Miracles

Hanukkah’s theme is of a miracle. During Hanukkah Jesus spoke of His miracles: If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him (John 10:37-38). Jesus wanted the people of his day to see His miracles and believe in Him as a result. His miracles point to his divine and messianic identity. In this way Yeshua personifies the message of Hanukkah: God actively involved in the affairs of his people. Hanukkah reminds us that God is a God of miracles, not just of concept and religious ideals. He has broken through into human history and continues to do so today. All of us who know Yeshua can speak of God’s working in our lives (Gilman 1995).

Jesus is the Light of the World

Jesus preached three sermons in which he declared Himself the “light of the world,” and all three could have been during Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. (It is not clear from the text when this incident happened, but it was some time between the Feast of Tabernacles and the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah); both of these celebrations focused on light).Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them (John 12:35-36).

Just before Jesus announced that He was the Light of the world, Jesus had shone upon the conscience of those who accused the adulteress. Read the story in John Chapter 8. John also records Jesus healing a blind man (John 9:1-12) at about the same time (John 8:12 and 9:5) that Jesus declared himself to be the Light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing (John 9:5-7).

End Times

The story of Hanukkah can be compared with end-time happenings described in the books of Revelation and Daniel. Antiochus is a type of the antichrist. Just as happened under the rule of Antiochus, Daniel prophesied in Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The same powers promoted by Antiochus are in the world today. Worldwide immorality, and idolatry are the norm. We must come out and be separate. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. The deceiver stands waiting to devour in this present culture (2 Cor. 6:16-17).
.
Was Jesus Conceived on Hanukkah?

Many believe that our Messiah, the “light of the world,” was conceived on the festival of lights—Hanukkah. The Bible does not specifically say the date of Jesus’ birth. It was not during the winter months because the sheep were in the pasture (Luke 2:8). A study of the time of the conception of John the Baptist reveals he was conceived about Sivan 30, the eleventh week (Luke 1:8-13, 24). Adding forty weeks, for a normal pregnancy reveals that John the Baptist was born on or about Passover (Nisan 14). Six months after John’s conception, Mary conceived Jesus (Luke 1:26-33); therefore Jesus would have been conceived six months after Sivan 30 in the month of Kislev—Hanukkah. Was the “light of the world,” conceived on the festival of lights? Starting at Hanukah, which begins on Kislev 25 and continues for eight days, and counting through the nine months of Mary’s pregnancy, one arrives at the approximate time of the birth of Jesus at the Festival of Tabernacles. (See the Tabernacle chapter.)
