America - Are You Ready for ETERNITY?


May I ask you (America) this most serious personal question? Do you possess the perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS needed to enter into the holy perfect presence of Almighty God? That is exactly what Almighty God has provided in the Person of Jesus Christ for ALL those of Adam’s fallen race who place their trust in Him (Rom. 3:23; 6:23; 10:2-4; 2 Cor. 5:21).

That is what this LIFE is all about! Having a living relationship with our Creator in spirit and truth.

These turbulent and troubling days are only going to get worse (2 Tim.3:1-7, 4:1-4). There is nothing we can do to stop what is transpiring and radically taking place in our nation and in this world. We are indeed at the Alamo in our world today where lawlessness moral relativism will continue to abound until the Man of Lawlessness himself is revealed (2 Thess. 2:3-12,Rev. 6:1-2; 13). May you OBJECTIVELY look “outside of the box” of your time-constrained worldview (Rom. 8:3-8, 2 Cor. 2:14), and place your faith in Almighty God, who so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son to die for your sins (transgressions against Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS standards) and mine (John 3:16-17). That is what this LIFE is all about - having a living relationship with our Creator in spirit and truth (reality) - John 4:24. It is ETERNITY that is ALL of our final destinations. It is for there that we must be ready in RIGHTEOUSNESS and in TRUTH (Rev. 20:11-20, 21, 22:1-5)! The question each American should soberly ask themselves is, "Am I ready for Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS ETERNITY and will I be able to stand in His HOLY RIGHTEOUS PRESENCE as I am?" (Rom. 3:23, Rom. 7:15-25)

It is ETERNITY that is ALL of our final destinations. It is for there that we must be ready in RIGHTEOUSNESS and in TRUTH.

May it be that you personally place ALL of your cares and expectations in Him alone for your ETERNAL - as well as temporal - well-being (1 Peter 5:7; Rev. 1:5). In doing so YOU will NEVER be the same, no, never (2 Cor. 5:17-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand America!

A Message To Those Who Are Left Behind After The Rapture












.










Greetings in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!

For a future not so distant day...

This brief letter is written to those of you who have been left behind. May I calm your great anxiety and fears with this great message of hope! God loves you and cares greatly for you. He has a great plan, purpose and future for you and your life. He wants only and always the highest and best things for you. So please give your ear and full attention to the words that follow. The days ahead will be days that will not be easy - in fact they will be quite horrendous. But be of good cheer and of good courage. Have Faith in Almighty God and His Word. - Link to Bible Study on the Rapture.

Jesus said, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but hath 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).

God so loved us that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sins and mine! God has thus provided a way to restore fellowship with sinners (all humans), and to remove His righteous wrath that was upon us because of our sins and trespasses. Everyone that puts their trust in Jesus Christ will thus find God's pardon for sin and restored fellowship with Him (1 John 1:1-3). The proof that God will do what He says is shown in what has just transpired, i.e., “The Rapture,” which is (or was) the abrupt removal of Believers (Christians) from the earth. God foretold in His Word that He would do it and He did! Almighty God never lies and never changes (see Numbers 23:19, 1 Samuel 15:29, Hebrews 6:18, 13:8). Almighty God and His Word can therefore be fully trusted! All that put their trust in Almighty God and His Word can be confident that God will do what He says (2 Timothy 1:12).

Basic Facts About Salvation Found in Jesus Christ

All that put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation (the Saved) thus find God's pardon for sin and have Eternal Life. All those who reject God’s saving grace (the Unsaved or Lost) will only receive God’s judgment and wrath (John 3:18).

The Saved will enter Christ’s Glorious Kingdom, which He will establish at the conclusion of this terrible time of Great World Tribulation, i.e., upon Christ's Second Coming to earth (Matthew 25:33-40). Facing God’s judgment, the Lost are removed from the earth prior to the beginning of Christ’s 1000-year (Millennial) Kingdom reign (Matthew 24:36-51, 25:41-46).

Another wonderful truth regarding those that are Saved is the deliverance from the power of wrath, darkness, and death (see 1 Thess. 1:10, Col. 1:13, Heb. 2:14-15). The Lost will have to experience the “Second Death,” which is eternal separation from God in Hell (the Lake of Fire) forever (Rev. 20:11-15). There is a Biblical saying that goes, “Born once, die twice. Born twice, die once.”

Humble yourselves before Almighty God. Listen to His Word! Have faith to believe Him, and all will be well. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!!

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? (1John 5:4-5).

The Rapture of the Church and Tribulation Period
.
As earlier stated, the major event that has just taken place (i.e., the Great Disappearance) is called "The Rapture of the Church." This is the event spoken of in the Holy Scriptures when Christ receives unto Himself all True Believers on earth who are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He has come to meet them in the clouds to be united – Head and Body, Bride and Bridegroom - FOREVER more.

As the Bible states: And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3).

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 4:15-17).

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 (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he [Christ] shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is
(1 John 3:2).

This period following the Rapture of the Church that you presently are in is called, "The Time of Jacob's Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7), “The Time of Great Tribulation” (Matthew 24, Mark 13), and “The Time of Indignation and Wrath (Isaiah 34:2; Revelation 6:16-17) desolations, false hopes, false promises and great deception such as the world has never seen (see Revelation chapters 6-19). The ONLY HOPE you have during this time of great global turmoil is to trust in The Lord Jesus Christ and His Word with all your heart, soul and mind. God has made provision for your total salvation in His wonderful person. Put your trust in Him!

A Brief Overview of Current Events

1. The first event that will take place after the Rapture is the treaty signed between Israel and their enemies. A Man from Europe will greatly strengthen this treaty and make it work. Don’t be deceived! His one goal is to destroy Israel. Don’t believe this man, his teachings and political motivations. He is Satan's Anti-Christ. From the signing of this treaty to the Second Coming of Christ is exactly 7 Years (1 “week” of years or 2520 days; see Daniel 9:26-27).

2. The Gospel message will be preached from Israel by God's Two Jewish Witnesses (Rev 11:3-14) and 144,000 Jewish missionaries (Rev. 7:4-8,14:1-5). Listen to them!!! They bring the TRUE Gospel message. They are God's messengers to the whole earth. Hear them! The man from Europe (aka Anti-Christ) will seek to destroy them and their Gospel message of Jesus Messiah.

3. Beware of the great deception at hand as Jesus spoke of in (Matthew 24:4 and Revelation 12:9). The fearful and unbelieving inhabitants of the earth will be very susceptible to this demonic deception because of the many-faceted catastrophes, conditions and circumstances of this dreadful time. Stay focused and have faith in God and His Word alone (Proverbs 3:5-7)!

4. Love and honor the people of Israel (Genesis 12:2-3). They are God's people and this time period involves them coming back to God as a nation. Love God's chosen people, the Jews (Isaiah 41:8-11). The Anti-Christ and the World system will persecute them with all their hatred and power (Revelation 12, 17:12-14). Line up with God and not with this Wicked World (1 John 2:15-17).

5. Study God's simple plan of salvation, the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), and hide it in your heart as the Bible teaches, for these are the Words of Life (2 Timothy 2:15; Psalm 119:11). Share it with anyone who will hear you (Colossians 4:5-6; 1 Peter 3:15). Be faithful, knowing they may kill the body but not the soul (Matthew 10:28-39). Your soul and spirit are possessed by Almighty God as you possess Him. If your life is taken, God will raise you up at the end of this seven-year tribulation period (Rev. 14:13; 20:4-6). Don’t be afraid; God is still in control, and He is working all things together for good (Rom. 8:28). Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou will be saved! (Acts 16:31)

6. If you survive and make it this far (Rev. 6-9) by all means, DO NOT receive the Mark of the Beast! (Rev.13:18, 14:9-11) If you know Christ as Your Savior, you are safely His and the Holy Spirit will make it clear not to take it. If you know not yet Christ, then do not let yourself be deceived. The mark might bring temporary relief but doom for ETERNITY! Trust in Christ as your Savior! Do not be swayed by the lies of the enemy! Don’t take the mark of the beast for any reason.

7. Again, place your trust in Almighty God and His Word alone! God is always right in what He says and does, and He is merciful and faithful in all His ways (Psalm 103:17-18; 1 Corinthians 10:13). This ought to bring great comfort and encouragement to your hearts. No matter what happens, remember that you belong to the Most High God and are eternally safe! (John 10:28)

The Kingdom Of Heaven is At Hand! Believe on the Lord Jesus and thou shall be saved! (Acts 16:31)
.
It is our desire that this brief letter may bring hope and insight about the Major Event that has just transpired. There are many links on this site that will direct you to the Holy Scripture truths about salvation and the current events at hand. Pray for God to give you wisdom and understanding in these days ahead.For indeed you will need it! God speed!

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!!

The ETERNAL Word of Almighty God - Sharper Than Any Light Saber!










Dear friends, being May 4th and if you can get past the title and read this full post you will be truly amazed at what the Word of Almighty God has to say about His precious Word, which is established FOREVER (Psalm 119:89, 144, 152, 160, 138:2, John 17:17)!

One of the things that I have been taught from the very beginning in helping children, adults and people in general how to learn a particular biblical truth is to use what they mentally know by experience or association. I have found by using what people know that it is easy to communicate to them the ETERNAL TRUTHS of Almighty God with the Holy Spirit's conviction, exhortation and correction (John 16:7-14)

By using what they know it is easy to communicate to them the ETERNAL TRUTHS of Almighty God with the Holy Spirit's conviction and correction.

Since 1977, countless millions of individuals have been exposed to the Star Wars saga, which is an epic story of good verses evil. Millions around the world can relate to this movie series and to its characters. In the spirit of keeping to this principle that I shared with you at the beginning of this post and since Star Wars is once again dominant and front and center globally in the movie world; I will be doing a little series throughout the year on teaching core Bible TRUTHS via Star Wars examples. Sounds foolish to some no doubt, but our Lord in the days of His flesh did the exact same thing. Did He not?  From taxes, to Jewish traditions, to fig trees, to seeds, farming, fishing, shepherding, sheep, water, bread, nets, plows, light, darkness, taxes, children, leaven, harvest etc... the Lord Jesus used them all to communicate the wondrous TRUTHS of Almighty God and so will we!

Well OK then ... lets roll!

No weapon from this worldly realm can even begin to compare to the sword of Almighty God, which is forged in the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, LIGHT and TRUTH of Almighty God's ETERNAL Person Himself!

To Star Wars fans no weapon is more powerful and exciting than a light saber! This weapon was the weapon of choice of the Jedi Knights and the evil Sith lords in close combat situations. The light saber is a weapon that could cut through almost anything and was  absolutely deadly if it came across one of your body parts in a duel. In Paul's day, Paul used a very familiar weapon in the arsenal of the Roman elite solider to help describe to the saints the absolute cutting power of the Word of Almighty God (Heb. 4:12). This sword described by Paul was called the machaira! The machaira (sword) was a very sharp dagger for close combat fighting for slicing, cutting and stabbing one's opponent in battle. This short, extremely sharp dagger/sword was absolutely deadly in the hands of a master wielder. As we shall see in our study, out of all the weapons in the arsenal of mankind from stones to nuclear bombs, no weapon from this worldly realm can ever begin to compare to the sword of Almighty God (the Sword of the ETERNAL Spirit of Almighty God), which is forged in the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, LIGHT and TRUTH of Almighty God's ETERNAL Person Himself!

The light saber like the machaira/sword requires much learning, skill and training to use correctly against the enemy. So also is it with the Word of God! Many believers and unbelievers who have tried to wield this weapon in ignorance or unskilled have brought upon themselves the horrific consequences of their actions.

The light saber like the machaira/sword requires much learning, skill and training to use correctly against the enemy (Psalm 119, Psalm 119:1-2,16, 24, 47, John 17:17, Rom. 5:1-5, Heb. 11:1, 6, 1 John 5:3-4). So also is it with the Word of God! Many believers and unbelievers who have tried to wield this weapon in ignorance or in a unskilled manner have brought upon themselves the horrific consequences of their actions (Saved) - 1 Cor. 2:10-11, 3:1-3, Heb. 5:12, James 1:6-8, 3:13-18) - even to the point in willful ignorance unto their ETERNAL doom (Unsaved - Matt. 7:21-23, 22:11-23, 2 Peter 3:16, Jude 1:2-3, 17-19).

The Word and Sword of Almighty God is ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, LIGHT and TRUTH which can cut asunder all darkness, lies, deceit, slander, deception, evil euphemisms, twisted truths of fallen man and the Devil himself.

By the application of Almighty God's Word by faith, the child of God will grow to know with confidence, full assurance, experience and power how use this ETERNAL spiritual weapon that can defeat all principalities and powers (spiritual and human - Eph. 6:12) and that in its wielding "can pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit; and of the joints and marrow (spirit and flesh), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of every human heart (Heb. 4:12)! My dear friends, there is absolutely NO comparison; no light saber or human weapon since the beginning of creation (from stones to nuclear bombs) can EVER do that!

The Word and Sword of Almighty God is ETERNALLY RIGHTEOUS, LIGHT and TRUTH, which can cut asunder ALL darkness, lies, falsehood, deceit, slander, deception, evil euphemisms, twisted truths of fallen man and even the fallen master, the Devil himself. Satan is the father of all falsehood (John 8:44). He willingly abandoned ETERNAL REALITY, LIGHT, the ETERNAL ABSOLUTES of RIGHTEOUSNESS for delusion, error, anarchy, disorder and ETERNAL damnation (Isa. 14:12-15, Ezek. 28:12- 19, John 8:44, Rev. 20:10). Just as all the darkness can NEVER put out the tiniest of light or override 2 +2 = 4, nor can all the lies of Hell ever be true or stand before ETERNAL TRUTH; so also is the ETERNAL established POWER of Almighty God's Word and Sword that absolutely none can stand before it in Heaven above or in hell below (Psalm 119:89, 144, 152, 160, Matt. 18:18, John 16:7-11, 17:17, Heb. 4:12).

Just as all the darkness can NEVER put out the tiniest of light or override 2 +2 = 4, nor can all the lies of Hell ever be true or stand before ETERNAL TRUTH; so also is the ETERNAL established POWER of Almighty God's Word and Sword that absolutely none can stand before it in Heaven above or in hell below!

For the child of Almighty God (John 1:12) this is the weapon that our Heavenly Father has given us to wield as we walk and fight in this fallen world (John 16:7-11, 17:17, Eph, 6:10-19), which is ruled by Satan, its dark lord (Eph. 2:1-2).

If our ETERNAL Lord and Savior, who is THE ETERNAL Word of God used Almighty God's ETERNAL established Word with great authority and effect against the Gates of Hell's legions so can we!

Our Lord used the established Word of God in the days of His flesh at His testing by Satan to defeat him and send him fleeing (Matt. 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, Luke 4:1-13). Our Lord used it against the unrighteous religious leaders and masses of Israel (Matt. 15:1-9, 21:41-46; 22:29-32; 37-46; 26:53-56; 63-64, Mark 3:29; 10:6-9;12:24: 13:14, Luke 4:16-20; John 5:39-40, 7:37-38). Our Lord also used it to correct and teach His disciples (Matt. 12:40; 16:21; 17:12; 24:44, Mark 3:29; 13:14, etc...). If our ETERNAL Lord and Savior, who is THE ETERNAL Word of God (John 1:1-3) used Almighty God's ETERNAL established Word with great authority and effect against the Gates of Hell's legions so can we (Matt. 18:18; 28:18, John 14:12; 17:17, Acts 1:8)! Jesus has commanded us and has encouraged us to do so with great courage unto great victory for the Father's ETERNAL glory and honor (Matt. 28:18-20, John 17, Acts 1:8)!

Almighty God has given us the most powerful weapon in ALL ETERNITY to use at will as we walk through time in which none can stand before (demonic or fallen man)!

Beloved, our fight is a spiritual one as the Holy Spirit has told us in God's Word (Eph. 6:10-18)! Almighty God has given us the most powerful weapon in ALL ETERNITY to use at will as we walk through time in which none can stand before (demonic or fallen man (Rom. 8:28-39). God has given us the most powerful weapon to use in prayer for Almighty God's glory, will and way (Matt. 18:18, John 16:7-11, John 5:14-15); and He has given us the most powerful weapon to use even against our fallen heart and old nature (Rom. 6:19, 7:18-25, 1 Cor. 11:31, 2 Cor. 10:5, Eph. 5:26, 1 John 1:9). Dear friends, consider this... If all the billions of people throughout the world were in confederacy against, if all the nuclear bombs and weapons of time were used against, if all the deception and slanders since the beginning of time were executed against, if all the floods and horrific conditions and settings of time were unleashed upon, nothing in this world and in the spiritual one can EVER overturn nor override 2 + 2 = 4!

If this established absolute of time (2 +2 = 4) is absolutely sure, established and unchangeable, then how much ETERNALLY more so  and sure is the Word of God which He has exalted above His ETERNAL Person and Name.

If this established absolute of time (2 +2 = 4) is absolutely sure, established and unchangeable, then how much ETERNALLY more so  and sure is the Word of God which He has exalted above His ETERNAL Person and Name (Psalm 138:2). It is absolutely impossible to overturn or override the ETERNALLY ESTABLISHED Word of Almighty God and His RIGHTEOUSNESS (Psalm 119:89, 144, 152, 160, 138:2)! Even Almighty God Himself has placed His ETERNAL Word before His own WONDROUS Name (Psalm 138:2)!!! O... glory!!  Dearly beloved, do you truly understand how absolutely wonderful this TRUTH is to the child of Almighty God and how ETERNALLY dreadful this is to the lawless unrepentant hater of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUSNESS?! When this wondrous ETERNAL TRUTH gets a hold of the believing heart and is executed in the yielded life to the will of the Father there is absolutely no limit to what God will do in this one's life for His ETERNAL GLORY and HONOR! Oh beloved, when this wondrous ETERNAL TRUTH brings conviction, repentance and the reception of Almighty God's PERFECT propitiation found in Jesus Messiah (1 John 4:10) to the unsaved transgressor's heart such a one instantly will find ETERNAL pardon, redemption, sanctification, RIGHTEOUSNESS, ETERNAL LIFE, a Divine calling, etc... etc... (1 Cor. 1:30)!

When this wondrous ETERNAL TRUTH gets a hold of the believing heart and is executed in the yielded life to the will of the Father there is absolutely no limit to what God will do in this one's life for His ETERNAL GLORY and HONOR!

Dear friend, what an ETERNAL foundation to build ones life upon here in time and to outwork Almighty God's calling and will for our lives in His grace and mercy (Isa. 26:3, 40:28-31, Matt. 7:24-25, 1 Cor. 2:9, 15:58, 2 Cor. 1:20, 5:17-21, Col. 3:1-4, Phil 4:13, 1 John, 1:9, 3:1-4, 4:4, 5:14-15, Rev. 1:5, 17-18, 22:1-5 etc...etc...!

My dear friends, may it be our true desire to fully exercise all of Almighty God's wondrous resources and promises, knowing that He changes not and His Word is ETERNALLY established! May we be rightly applying God's Word in our life and learning to be - in fear, reverence and great awe in the grace and mercy of God - master wielders of the ETERNAL WORD of God for His GLORY and HONOR in these last days!

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

Diligently Searching in the Dark for Something That Is Not There!

Mankind is ever searching for a black cat in which the room is dark, with black painted walls, with a broken flashlight, without batteries and the black cat which they seek does not even exist! This delusional expedition is the ultimate tragic quest of vanity and futility (Prov. 14:12, Rom. 1:18-32). Generation upon generation has come up empty - as history can attest - in man's never-ending search for answers and meaning without their RIGHTEOUS Creator (Eccl, Isa 59:8-9).

Apart from Almighty God, how will lost mankind ever find meaning and the answers to life's mysteries? My friend, when one rejects Almighty God’s Word of truth, honestly, what hope does one have in this savage world? How tragic will it be for those in the end when absolute reality must be honored by all those who absolutely despise and reject it for all ETERNITY (Phil 2:10-11, 2 Thess. 2:9-12, Jude 1:8, Rev 21:27).

When humanity rejects Almighty God’s Holy Spirit, His witness of Creation’s glories, His infallible Word and the witness of man’s own conscious, the tragic result is a delusion vanity and absolute ruin (Romans 1:18-32, Matt 25:41, Rev 20:10-15).

Man is all that Almighty God will keep when all is said and done.

No one knows this more than King Solomon of old. King Solomon possessed it all: wisdom, brilliance, discernment, authority, prestige, riches/ wealth, property/ possessions, power, fame, women and glory. Amazingly, as he was reflecting on his life in his last days, he made this very sobering and tragic statement: “Vanity of vanities… all is vanity”

Man is all that Almighty God will keep when all is said and done. The vast glorious creation of the celestial heavens (sky and space) and the wonders here on planet earth and its natural laws of science will all be removed and destroyed ( 2 Peter 3:7,10) for a New Heavens and Earth that is without corruption and ruin (Isa 65:17, 1 Peter1:4, Rev 21:1 -27).

Almighty God offers reality (truth) and hope to all that call upon him.

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else (Isa 45:22).

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (John 8:12).

The endless quest in vanity and its futile answers cease when one turns to Almighty God and His saving grace that is found only in the Person of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? He alone can set you free from the darkness of this godless world system (John 8:32, 36). He has all the answers and has all the solutions you will ever need. He offers you a life of purpose and a heavenly calling that will last FOREVER (2 Cor. 5:17-21, Thess. 1:9). Won’t you place your trust in Him today? You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of God is at Hand!

Almighty God’s "Steel Curtain" Defense

.









As a boy growing up in the late 70’s I was a passionate Pittsburgh Steelers fan. The Steelers were notoriously known for their solid defense and were nicknamed the "Steel Curtin”. This solid defense of the Steelers allowed very little offensive gain from their opponents and is legendary and highly acclaimed by football fans unto this day.

Almighty God “as it were” puts up His “steel curtain” defense of EVERLASTING grace and mercy against His lost and perishing creature (man).

In the light of ETERNITY, Almighty God “as it were” puts up His “steel curtain” defense of EVERLASTING grace and mercy against His lost and perishing creature (man) in a desperate attempt to prolong and derail our godless rebellion and ETERNAL destiny of perdition and doom in the ETERNAL prison hold called, “the Lake of Fire” (John 3:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15).

The Bible states,

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 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).

My friend, can you not see how Almighty God’s grace and mercy and providential management on our behalf – when we were once lost and dead in our trespasses and transgressions (Isa. 53:6, Rom. 5:10, Eph. 2:1-2) – has spared and kept us from our own self destructive will and lawless rebellious desires against our Creator and against His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes (Isa. 53:6, Rom. 2:4, 5:6, 2 Peter 3:9,15). He has - throughout all of our lives prior to our salvation - always put up His Heavenly Steel Curtain defense as we in our past unbelief and godless rebellion beat our drum to the course of this world and have sought to rush and carry our self willed and godless agenda straight in to the HELL Zone (Gen. 3:22-24, Rom. 2:4, Eph. 2:1-10).

How else could we have ever come to a saving knowledge of the truth if it had not been for Almighty God’s Steel Curtain of grace and mercy (Luke 18:13, Rom. 2:4, 1 Tim. 2:3-4)?

It is with ALL of Almighty God’s ETERNAL BEING that He desires ALL to come to repentance and to a full acknowledgment of their transgressions against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of His ETERNAL Person (John 3:17, 1 Tim. 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9). Almighty God also greatly desires ALL to come to a saving knowledge of His Son - The Lord Jesus Christ – man’s only means for propitiation and pardon for ETERNAL redemption (Acts 4:12, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 1:30, 1 John 2:2). Oh beloved, what Divine wondrous love! What could ever – in FOREVER - compare to the ETERNAL Divine righteous love of man’s omnipotent and omniscient Creator (Jude 1:25)?

Rushing One's Rebellion into the Hell Zone

These wondrous truths of time and ETERNITY also apply to all of the world’s - past and present - lost and unregenerate children of Adam’s fallen race (Rom. 5:12). My friend, NO ONE will ever end up in the Lake of Fire for all ETERNITY without choosing to go there for themselves (John 3:36, 1 John 5:12). My friend, NO ONE ever ends up FOREVER in the Lake of Fire without fighting tooth and nail against the EVERLASTING grace and mercy of Almighty God’s Heavenly "Steel Curtain".

When an unregenerate individual - whether morally virtuous or wickedly vile - outright rejects Almighty God's ETERNAL sovereignty, he as a raging bull seeks to push the limits of Almighty God’s grace and mercy.

There comes the point in each individual’s life (this temporal earthly existence) in which they have solidly chosen and have set in concrete their decision for or against their Creator (Ezek. 24:13, Hosea 7:13, Matt. 23:37, Rom. 1:18-32). When an unregenerate individual - whether morally virtuous or wickedly vile - out right rejects Almighty God's ETERNAL sovereignty, he as a raging bull seeks to push the limits of Almighty God’s grace and mercy. What is most tragic is that God will eventually step out of the way and lets these God haters beat their godless drum in this "brief existence" called "time" unto their ETERNAL doom (Rom 1:18-32). History is filled with these countless precedents of the godless virtuous and vile who have rejected Almighty God’s saving grace through out the 6000 year history of creation. As Almighty God’s infallible Word so truly states, All have sinned (Rom. 3:23)! All have violated and have transgressed Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes and His Ten Commandments in their hearts, souls, minds and with their actions (Rom. 3:10-23)! My friend, Virtuous or vile ALL have Sinned! ALL are violators of God’s ETERNAL righteous absolutes! ALL need God’s saving solution and Savior!

Beloved, God is Righteous!

My friend, for years some of us have prayed vigilantly for loved ones and individuals to come to a saving knowledge of the Savior, only to have these individuals choose to die in their sins and transgressions in the end (John 8:24, Rom. 6:23). My friends, has Almighty God turned a deaf ear to our desperate pleas and petitions for our loved ones? GOD FORBID!!!! Almighty God wants these individuals saved and regenerated more than we ever could. God fully comprehends the entire magnitude of their ETERNAL destiny and loves them more than we ever could with A PERFECT AND ETERNAL LOVE (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:9,16). God the Father sent and gave His only begotten Son to meet our ETERNAL dire needs (Rom. 6:23, 10:4, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 John 3:5). God the Son put on humanity and violently died and shed His sinless blood on the cross for the sins of the whole world to be our perfect propitiation and Savior (Gal. 1:4, Heb, 10:7-10, 1 Peter 1:18-19, 1 John 2:2, Rev 1:5).

God fully comprehends the entire magnitude of their ETERNAL destiny and loves them more than we ever could with A PERFECT AND ETERNAL LOVE.

Throughout these individuals’ (our loved ones and the whole world’s ) entire lives (existence in time) Almighty God has put up the “Heavenly Steel Curtain” and has made every attempt to deliver these godless and lawless individuals (whether virtuous or vile - good or evil) from their fallen state and ETERNAL doom, but in the end these choose ruin and destruction instead of ETERNAL righteousness and fellowship with their Creator in spirit and truth (Matt. 25:41, John 4:24, Rev. 20:11-15). What is most tragic is that these individuals chose to reject God’s saving grace throughout their entire short “flower of the field” lives and live in a delusion about the ETERNAL realities of righteousness and judgment. These - in the end - dive head first over Almighty God's "Heavenly goal line stance" into ETERNAL perdition, ruin and judgment (i.e., into the Hell Zone). Each human being is the sole captain of their ETERNAL destiny. In the end, it is each one's own personal decision that chooses their ETERNAL destiny and habitation.
.
In the end, it is each one's own personal decision that chooses their ETERNAL destiny and habitation.
.
My Beloved, always remember that in Almighty God is no evil or unrighteousness (Job 34:10, Psalm 116:5, Rom. 9:14). He NEVER can lie (Titus 1:2, Heb. 6:18). He is only LOVING, MERCIFUL, GRACIOUS, LONG SUFFERING and most of all RIGHTEOUS (Psalm 86:15, 103:8, 116:5, 145:17, John 4:9,16, 2 John 1:3)!

“Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? (Gen 18:25c)”

There are many hard and overwhelming realities to deal with today in this lost and dying world. May we be bold as lions to see these realities for what they are from Almighty God’s Eternal perspective? It is from this Heavenly position that we will be set free from all of the temporal overwhelming realities of time and ETERNITY (John 8:32, 36, Col. 3:1-2).

My friends let me quote Almighty God once more.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 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)."

My beloved, I do not know how to state anything more wonderful than that! Beloved, enjoy God and let him LOVE you as only He can in these trying days.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

What If The Lord Jesus Came To America?


















If the Lord Jesus Christ came in our day (2019) to the "land of the free", what would you expect the majority of Americans to do with Him? Would the "Word made Flesh" be received and welcomed as the Savior of the world? Would "church" goers receive Him with open arms? Would the socially dependent so-called "poor", rich and government and educational elites welcome Him with open arms? Would the conservative and leftist media outlets have good things to say about Him? Would His countless miracles of healing the lame, blind, sick and demon-possessed win over the masses from sea to shining sea? Well... Tragically the heart of a man is NOT changed by witnessing signs and wonders (Matt. 13, Rom. 10:17). Man will just about justify, excuse and do anything rather than changing and repenting to Almighty God's saving grace (John 3:19-21, Rom. 1:18-32). The history of mankind is full of such godless testimonies (Psalm 106:7, John 5:1-18, Acts 2:22-23, Rev. 11:3-13, Rev. 20:6-15). I guarantee that the majority of Americans who would have saw Jesus would in like manner (Liberals and Conservatives) by the end of His 3 1/2 year ministry would have had enough of Him, His ETERNAL realities, and cries of repentance to a lost and dying world, and at Easter (an American holiday) it would in unison yell crucify Him and put Him to death! The country we live in today has absolutely NO PLACE for Almighty God, the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ. Self willed religion (a spiritual philosophy), narcissism, independence from godliness and lawlessness dominate our day. So when push comes to shove and the chips are down, when ones back is against the wall and the fat lady sings the true nature of an individual is then revealed and it "ain't" pretty. Such was the heart in Jesus' day and such is the heart of our day.

Man will just about justify, excuse and do anything rather than changing and repenting to Almighty God's saving grace.

As it were, Jesus had absolutely dominated the “news cycle” of His day for 3 ½ years! Jesus would have been constantly talked about in all of the newspapers and on all of the radio talk shows, blogs and main stream media outlets. Sadducees and Pharisees talk shows hosts would ignorantly miss represent Him to the kool aid drinking Israeli masses of conservatives and liberal Jews of Jesus day. His enemies would have be on 24/7 slandering campaigns to change and curb public opinion against Him. His WONDERFUL WORDS OF LIFE and ETERNAL REDEMPTION to a doomed and fallen world would have been called intolerant, hate speech, bigoted and satanic-phobia. There would have been constant polls questioning and asking, “Is Jesus the Messiah?” “Is He good for Israel?” “Do you believe that Jesus is God? etc. Religious and political hacks would have followed Him around Israel protesting, misrepresenting and misquoting His words, miracles and wonders to their godless doom! Those in opposition along with government bureaucrats would have sought to limit where Jesus was to speak and sent their spies out to follow Him to gather incriminating evidence against Him. The unbelieving Israeli socialists would have wanted Jesus to run for leadership as a socialist “cradle to grave” provider of the people without ever addressing their ETERNAL needs. Conservatives would have wanted Jesus to run for office to instill a conservative utopia (in this fallen world) where the people can honor God according to their “OWN” conservative mindset while REJECTING Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS provision for ETERNITY (Rom. 10:2-4). The poor would have wanted something for nothing and the rich low taxes to grow the economy and their “worldly” business.

Unbelief, is unbelief, is unbelief, is unbelief! If it quacks like an unbelieving duck, and walks like an unbelieving duck it is an unbelieving duck! It was so in Jesus Day and it is so in our day!

My friends NOTHING is EVER new under the sun! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING (Eccl. 1)! Whether conservative unbelief or liberal unbelief (politically or religiously), Unbelief, is unbelief, is unbelief, is unbelief! If it quacks like an unbelieving duck, and walks like an unbelieving duck, it is an unbelieving duck! It was so in Jesus day and it is so in our day! What is absolutely key to know the reality of what is going on in our world is that the master of this fallen and godless world of Jew and Gentiles has the same ol playbook but repackaged into whatever deception that is needed for the hour . Lucifer has - then and today - countless unbelieving godless demonic kool aid drinkers to do his will (1 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph 2:2-3) who (conservative, moderate and liberal) REJECT Almighty God’s saving grace which comes ONLY by His dear Son Jesus Messiah (John 3:16-21, 14:6, Acts 4:12). Conservative, Moderate, Liberal, Progressive etc… ALL are lost and ALL are fallen (Rom. 3:23, 5:12-21). Whatever part of the spectrum one might fall in we are all equally a broken egg who desperately need redemption and a PERFECT (a perfect egg) atoning propitiation (Rom. 3:23, 5:12-21, 1 John 4:10)! That my dear friend is the bottom line and is our greatest need for our temporal existence here in time today (Rom. 6:23).

A "Christian" ideology will not save you. A moral life will not save you. ONLY faith in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ will SAVE you from the wrath to come!

May I ask YOU this very simple question? If the Lord Jesus came today to America, would YOU receive Him as your Savior? The test to see for yourself  is will YOU receive God's Word witness to Who He was? That is always the crossroad for an individual. A "Christian" ideology will not save you. A moral life will not save you. ONLY faith in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ will SAVE you from the wrath to come (John 3:16-17,36,  1 Thess. 1:10). My dear friend, see for yourself and take this simple challenge from Almighty God's Book. It will be then and there that YOU will see if - in the end - you would have yelled with the multitudes 2000 years ago "CRUCIFY HIM!!" or SAVE ME Lord Jesus! In the end, the choice is ALL yours. would will it be? May you choose life my dear friend!


The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Conservative Optimist or Biblical Realist – Which One Are You?













Conservative ideologies and all other human ideologies will have to yield to the absolute righteousness and perfection demanded by Almighty God (Rom. 10:2-4). No human ideology or philosophy (based on moral absolutes - natural laws - or not) can ever produce or bring about this required righteousness and righteous environment for fallen man (Rom.5:12-21).

All will be required to know and worship Almighty God in Spirit and Truth (Reality) in the ETERNAL STATE of FOREVER (Isaiah 65:16, John: 4:24, Rev. 21-22). The delusional imaginations of man will be FOREVER removed, and all will worship and honor Almighty God for who He Is (Exodus 3:13-15), whether in Heaven above or in Hell below for all ETERNITY. (Romans 14:11; Philip. 2:10-11). Link
                 
The only true "optimist" is a Biblical realist.
.
Having faith in Almighty God (Mark 11:22) and a healthy, Biblical optimism based on reality is the only sure hope for the Conservative today. The only true optimist is a Biblical realist.

In these ever-trying and exponentially-changing times, may you put aside ALL your subjective optimistic ideals for this present little world and to place your total "faith" and "trust" in the only SURE FOUNDATION and SOUND HOPE there is, namely, the REALITY of Almighty God and His never changing Word (Psalm 119:89, 160; Isaiah 40:8; Matt. 24:35, 1 Peter 1:25).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!!

215 THINGS THAT ARE TRUE OF ME NOW THAT I AM SAVED

















Having reminded ourselves of our former, unregenerate state, we are now ready to consider the great things God has done for us in His grace, saving our souls and making us whole. This listing is by no means original. For example, Lewis Sperry Chafer has a similar listing in his book entitled Salvation. Also this listing is by no means complete or exhaustive. We have listed 215 things but there are more. You can add to this list through your own study of the Scriptures as you find other things that are true of you now that you are saved. This study can be used as a devotional aid. One or two of the following points could be considered each day as you meditate on the riches of God's grace. Consider these as "SPIRITUAL VITAMIN PILLS" and take one or two a day! As you go through the day remind yourself of who you are and what you have in Christ! As a saint, live saintly! As a child of God, so walk in a way that would honor your heavenly Father! "To God be the glory! Great things He hath done!" Don't forget WHO YOU ARE! Consider the following:

Wonderful grace of Jesus, Greater than all my sin;How shall my tongue describe it, Where shall its praise begin?Taking away my burden, Setting my spirit free,For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
Wonderful grace of Jesus, Reaching the most defiled,By its transforming power Making him God's dear child,Purchasing peace and heaven For all eternityAnd the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me!"

The Kingdom of heaven is at hand!
