Victory in Jesus in 2020 for Almighty God's Honor and Glory!


















Dearly beloved of the Lord, God has graciously brought us through to a new year and as we have seen here in America in 2019 - with things seemingly turning around - that spiritual and moral relativism still dominates the minds of Americans and is still making great strides today. The question that we need to ask ourselves going into 2020 is; are we as Americans any closer to possessing the Divine REALITY of Almighty God's saving grace than we were last year? I would objectively have to say no; and as a matter of fact, a great many conservative evangelicals are more consumed with saving America than pointing people to Christ who saves souls. Christians first and conservatives second is the proper order for the blood brought child of God; for this nasty world is NOT our home my beloved and we must see the ETERNAL as we live in this temporal! As we embark on this New Year, may we be continually focused and redeeming the time for the Savior for the days are evil indeed (Eph. 5:16); for the day and hour of His coming is nearer then ever before. May we have faith in Almighty God, Who works out all things for His honor and glory (Romans 8: 28, Rev. 4:11) and may we possess the ETERNAL perspective that only God and His Word gives while living in this fallen temporal world (Col. 3:1-2, Phil. 3:20). May we be also exercising our Heavenly calling as His ambassadors to a lost and dying world, for the end is drawing near (2 Cor. 5:20, Eph. 5:16). The past is in the past and the ETERNAL future for the child of God is always BRIGHT (Phil. 3:8,12)!

.May we possess the ETERNAL perspective that only God and His Word gives while living in this temporal world.
..
Beware and be on guard of the subtleties of our adversary “the Devil” and the many voices that seek to derail and distract us from the realities at hand (Matt. 24: 4-5, Luke 22:31, 2 Cor. 11:13-15, Phil. 3:2, James 4:7, 1 Peter 5:8).

May our battle cry be “Victory in Jesus” in this 2019 year (1 Cor. 15:57, 2 Cor. 2:14, 1 John 5:4)! My beloved, this may indeed be the very year that we see our Beloved Savior face to face (1 John 3:2-3). What glory that will be!

My friends what ever may transpire this year here in troubled America, remember what must be; for the Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand! Think on and remember this invaluable truth and reality! It will truly set you free from all of the adversity that surrounds us (John 8:32, 36)!

We all at the Ignorant Fishermen Blog wish you all a blessed and Christ centered New Year with much victory  (1 Cor. 15:57, 2 Cor. 2:14, 1 John 5:4)!
,
Victory in Jesus in 2020 and occupy for Almighty God's glory!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Endure Unto Victory For Almighty God's Glory in 2020!!

My dear friend, whatever we are going through (hard or simple), may we take FULL advantage of the opportunity to exercise the WONDROUS TRUTHS of Almighty God’s Word and choose to have faith in Him (Mark 11:22, Heb. 11:1,6). May we fully endure whatever is thrown at us unto victory and for Almighty God's glory until He comes! In doing so we will be astounded at how much our relationship with the Savior will grow and become stronger as well as our assurance, confidence and boldness in the TRUTH (John 3:32,36). In light of our day as we as a nation are now under the Divine judgment of Almighty God, may we see everything from our place in Christ seated at His throne and possess the VICTORY.

 May we fully endure whatever is thrown at us unto victory and for Almighty God's glory until He comes!

May we with all expectation be watchful of the wondrous work our Heavenly Father will do in our hearts and lives, which is all to be outworked for His WONDROUS NAME and GLORY in these last days (Rom. 8:29, Eph. 2:10, James 1:1-7). These days are only going to get tougher and Satan’s grip ever stronger. There is a GREAT Tribulation at our doorstep (Rev. 6-19), but we are to be of good cheer for He said that He would come for us before that HORRIFIC time (John 14:3, Rev. 3:10). And if wars and calamity do happen on our pilgrimage, Almighty God and His Word will ALWAYS be there to be believed and exercised till we see Him Face to face (1 John 3:1-3).
.
May we with all expectation be watchful of the wondrous work our Heavenly Father will do in our hearts and lives, which is all to be  outworked for His WONDROUS NAME and GLORY in these last days.

My dear friends, we are seated in Heavenly places at the Right Hand of the Father in Christ Jesus at the pinnacle of ALL ETERNITY (Psalm 110:1, Eph. 1:1-3, 2:6, Col. 3:1-4). It is from here my dear friends that we are to live in this fallen world. It is from there that we are to be victorious and redeem the time (Eph. 5:16-17, Phil. 4:13). Almighty God’s ETERNAL perspective will indeed set us free my beloved (John 8:32, 36)! Have FAITH in God and His Word and you will truly see!
Does Jesus care for you? My dear friend, I would say that He surely does. Just look at His hands and side which (Rom.8:31-32, Rev. 1:5).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Trump IMPEACHMENT/The Four Horsemen are at the Door!

Dear friends, praying (petitioning) for our nation (1 Timothy 2:1-4), having Tea Parties, calling our representatives and elected officials, being up to date on the issues, living out our Judeo/ Christian ideals, etc... is all fine and dandy, but DO NOT deceive yourselves into thinking that all of this effort and wishful thinking will re-establish a “Christian” conservative America or a “Christian” conservative utopia today here on earth, with the gullible imagination that we will all live happily ever after. The Trump IMPEACHMENT COUP is a very powerful sign to America what can happen to an American when one goes against the demonic mind and the ever growing, abundant demonic legions of  the demonic lawless left (Psalm 14, Rom. 1:18-32, Eph. 2:1-2, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, Jude 1:10)! Again my friend, we have absolutely passed the point of no return in this regard. The steak has been left out in the hot sun too long and is totally rotten and spoiled and is good for nothing but to be disposed of! The Four Horsemen and the Two Witnesses of Revelation are at the world's door and nothing is going to stop them now from their ride (Rev. 6-9)! When dam of America finally implodes, what then will stop the EXPONENTIAL catastrophic, global, lawless flood from filling and devouring the entire earth (Rev. 6-19)!!
,
 DO NOT deceive yourselves into thinking that all of this effort and wishful thinking will re-establish a “Christian” conservative America or a “Christian” conservative utopia today here on earth, with the gullible imagination that we will all live happily ever after.

The delusional optimistic reasoning and Satanic Kool-Aid of the day that is being peddled by “religious” conservatives (Rom. 10:2-4, 2 Cor. 11:13-15) who do not honor or know not Almighty God in Spirit and Truth is, ALL WILL BE WELL (Matt. 7:21-23; John 4:24; Jude 1:3-4). BE NOT DECEIVED! Many so called "Christians" at present are drinking this poison and passing the jug around to all! Many are departing the faith and sound doctrine and apostatizing into many subtle isms. (1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Peter 2:1). Warning again, Be not DECEIVED!

Sadly, many Christians today are oblivious to this Biblical reality. These have subjectively submersed themselves into the current events of the day and the "mission" for the restoration of Washington and it has absolutely consumed all of their time and energy. They have constructed a wall of worry, ignorance and temporal foresight so high that they cannot see and comprehend the hour and day in which we are living in. These days in which we are living in are the catalyst leading to the soon approaching Day of the Lord, the Battle of Armageddon and the Lord Jesus Christ's glorious second coming to earth to establish His 1000 Year Kingdom! (2 Thess. 2:2-3, Rev 16:13-16, 19:11-21).
.

My friend, there is a Big Bad Tribulation headed our way and nothing is going to stop that event from transpiring.
.
My friend, there is a BIG BAD BEYOND  EXPONENTIAL GLOBAL TRIBULATION headed our way and with the Four Horsemen ready to ride, NOTHING is going to stop that event from transpiring! These who are willingly ignorant and unbelieving have set their temporal earthly “tent pegs” deep in the world reasoning and system, and have given a distant second status to the Word of Almighty God, Jesus Christ and the Gospel proclamation of ETERNAL redemption (Matt. 28:19-20; Rom 1:16)! These have lost their ETERNAL vision and focus, and the Heavenly calling given them by Almighty God if they only but receive it! ETERNAL salvation in Jesus Messiah is ETERNALLY needed so drastically for today for our nation and world, but who will hear the saving grace of Almighty God today(1 Cor. 2:5; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Eph. 1:3; Col. 3:1)?

Our Hope and future expectations are not to be found in this passing world, but ONLY in Almighty God and His ETERNAL promises (1 John 2:15-17).

Our Holy admonition from Almighty God is that we are to be Christ’s servants (slave) first for Almighty God's GLORY and HONOR, and conservative patriots second. This is the proper order for the child of God (John 1:12) today.
.
Remember my friends, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand and a big bad tribulation (Matt 24) is at our door step called, "The Day of the Lord" (Rev. 6-19). May those who know  the Lord Jesus Christ give Him first place in our lives and may His glorious Gospel message be proclaimed in these Last Days (1 Cor. 10:31, 2 Cor. 5:17-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Have You Been to the Manger?

My dear friend, may I ask you this very personal question since we are in the “Christmas” season? Do you truly comprehend and believe the biblical message of ETERNAL salvation put forth by Almighty God in His infallible Word? Do you fully comprehend without a shadow of a doubt that your ABSOLUTE GREATEST NEED is to be delivered from your fallen humanity and the wrath of your Creator (John 3:36, 1 John 5:12)? My friend, are you fully prepared for your ETERNAL abode? Do you have the ABSOLUTE PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS required by Almighty God (Rom. 3:23, 6:23, 10:2-4)? My friend, no one does and that is why we need Almighty God's Savior so desperately!

This child would - by the shedding of His RIGHTEOUS BLOOD one day - make FULL ATONEMENT for all who would place their absolute trust in Him and that He would be satisfying propitiation that would make peace on earth.

No wonder the angelic multitude on that night 2000 years ago rejoiced with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT JOY, for they FULLY understood what this lost world did not. For what sin had destroyed, Almighty God was seeking to redeem. This child would - by the shedding of His RIGHTEOUS BLOOD one day - make FULL ATONEMENT for all who would place their absolute trust in Him and that He would be the satisfying propitiation that would bring TRUE peace to the earth (1 John 2:2). Indeed Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS intentions and goodwill towards mankind were expressed in the sending of His precious Son (John 3:16-17). Oh beloved, that is what Christmas is about!!

Have you given heed to the glorious angelic message of old as the shepherds that night did 2000 years ago?
/
A Savior was born! Do you personally know Him? That is your own personal choice to make. Have you given heed to the glorious angelic message of old as the shepherds that night did 2000 years ago (Luke 2:9-12)? All who hear God's proclamation and obey it will find Him will (Luke 2:15-18). May it be so that you choose to receive the LOVE of Almighty God which is His dear Son who is the greatest gift this Christmas season and every season! Place your trust in Him today, you will NEVER EVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Awaiting Red Dragon and the First Christmas.













Long before the first nativity (First Christmas) ever took place it was well known by the god of this world (Gen. 3:14-15, Eph. 2:2-3, Rev. 12:4); that he was ETERNALLY doomed (Isaiah 14, Ezek. 28, Rev. 20:10)! His violent rebellion against Almighty God’s ETERNAL sovereignty and RIGHTEOUSNESS was WELL planned and thought out (Isa. 14:12-15). I truly believe that when Lucifer was created at the beginning of Almighty God’s creation and was given the chief position in the worship of the TRIUNE GOD, that he truly loved and adored his Creator (Ezek. 28:12-15). The heavenly worship which he conducted in that timeless past was one of majestic praise and glory! He inspired the countless angelic hosts and brought great praise and glory to Almighty God his RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL Creator; but as time went on, Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion. He began looking at his created beauty, and pride and rebellion began to consume him (Ezek. 28:12-15)!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

A Very Personal Christmas Message From Almighty God - Christmas Is For You! Yes, You!













My dear friends, we live today in Satan's EXPONENTIAL technological age where moral relativism dominates and where social media distributes its poison 24/7/365 to the masses. So when Americans think of Christmas today they are brainwashed and drunken with Satan's destroying poison and have many subjective relativistic views on its meaning which are not TRUE and are full of DEATH and DELUSION (Prov. 12:15, 14:12, 16:25, 2 Cor. 13:55). The birth of Jesus Christ is ABSOLUTE, TRUTH, REALITY and SURE! You can think whatever you want about it, twist it whatever which way you want, slander it whichever which way you want, disregarding it whichever way you want to but you can NEVER, EVER, FOREVER change the REALITY and TRUTH that Almighty God - creation's ETERNAL Creator - so loved the world that He gave His ONLY begotten Son as its Savior and propitiation (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10).

That is what the word, "whosoever" means from John 3:16! It is the personal choice of an individual to make a very personal and individual decision on their ETERNAL destiny with their RIGHTEOUS Creator.

The REALITY of it ALL is that Christmas is for Adam's fallen race and that Christmas is for "whosoevers" and that Christmas - to make it VERY personal - is for you! Yes, you! The Christmas message is a very personal one (John 1:12; 3:16-17). If you my dear friend were the only human on planet earth Almighty God would have sent His precious RIGHTEOUS Son to die in your place for your transgressions and rise again from the grave for your justification (Isa. 53, Rom. 4:25, Gal. 1:4, Heb. 10, 1 Peter 3:18, Rev. 1:5). That is what the word, "whosoever" means from John 3:16! It is the personal choice of an individual to make a very personal and individual decision about their ETERNAL destiny with their RIGHTEOUS Creator (John 1:12, 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, Rom. 10:2-4).

 The very meaning of the Name "Jesus" means; Yahweh IS Salvation! The very gift from Almighty God for you is His ETERNAL Person which is found in His precious Son.

This Christmas may you be biblically objective and see from Almighty God's precious Word, the REALITY and TRUE meaning of Christmas and the unspeakable gift Almighty God your ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator has for you in the babe of Bethlehem (Isa. 53, Micah 5:2, Matt. 1:21, 2 Cor. 9:15). The very meaning of the Name "Jesus" means; Yahweh IS Salvation! The very gift from Almighty God for you is His ETERNAL Person which is found in His precious Son (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:21-23, John 1:1-4, Heb. 1:2-3; 10). If you know not the Lord Jesus Messiah as your personal Savior there is no better time than this Christmas season to receive Him into your heart (John 1:12)! There was no room at the inn for Jesus to be born and I pray the inn of your heart does not have a "no vacancy" sign in its window too! May you choose Jesus as your own and receive God's most precious Gift for yourself, His beloved Son!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men?



















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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There is absolutely no way that TRUE PEACE and PERFECT HARMONY can EVER be brought about WITHOUT the ETERNAL established RIGHTEOUSNESS of ALMIGHTY GOD (Isa. 32:17, 48:18,22). Almighty God’s whole ETERNITY and physical universe 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 and broken egg with absolutely no way our repairing ourselves. 6000 years of human history testifies to the fact that we are a violent and lawless race with death as our future and destiny (Rom. 3:23) and on our way to total destruction. If it had not been for Almighty God’s outside intervention holding back the full accumulation of violence of mankind we would have been extinct a long time ago  (Matt. 24:21-22, 2 Thess. 2:6-8). Isn’t it amazing that as American’s listen to our leaders in Washington D.C., the media (conservative and liberal), Hollywood and the music culture and industry preach utopian ideals unto them that the majority of the world sincerely believe that lie from hell, which is if we just keep working at “peace” (give peace a chance) that we will one day finally achieve it?

How deceived are we as humans and totally delusional to think that we as Adam’s fallen race could establish a PERFECT world and enter into ETERNITY without the required RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God demands.

My friend, let's wake up and get real! There is NO WAY that a smashed egg can EVER again be put perfectly back together and there is NO WAY that this broken world can EVER fix itself. This vain utopian pursuit is the ultimate delusional chasing of the devil’s cattle. At the end of this vain delusional chase, the world will tragically finally find out the REALITIES of time and ETERNITY that they have REJECTED their whole lives (Luke 16:22-31, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). It will be in that Day that these will be fully AWAKENED from their self induced godless hypnotic delusion and will FULLY understand that their lawless self-willed existence here in time has led them straight into the slaughterhouse of the ETERNAL Divine Judgment and wrath of Almighty God (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2; 8-12, Rev.20:11-15).

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

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

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

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Exponential Unemployment Rate Under The Messiah












You’re Fired!

Not exactly the words one wants to ever hear from his supervisor. But what if you were fired from a toilsome and difficult job, in a dirty and dangerous place, only to be hired by a perfect Employer, for a perfect job, in a beautiful place of countless blessings and rewards?

The Bible teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ will reign over a literal one-thousand-year kingdom on this earth from His throne in Jerusalem one day (Isa. 2:1-4;11, Zech. 14:9-21, Rev. 20:4-5). Sadly, for too many believers, this truth almost seems like a fairy tale because they simply don’t mix faith with the Word of God (Heb. 4:2; 11:1, 6). In today’s study we will consider some of the characteristics of this future Kingdom, things that will and things that will not be done “in all his holy mountain”.

He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron!

As part of His glorious return to earth, the Lord Jesus Christ will break both the power of the nations as well as the curse that has been on the earth since Adam’s sin (Isa. 11:1-9; 35, Rom. 5:12-21). Revelation 19:15 says that, “out of His mouth go’s a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” Psalm 2 as well as the prophetic books of Isaiah, Daniel, and Zechariah all echo this absolute victory that Jesus Christ will bring to His people Israel and in turn to the whole earth (Isa. 24:21-22, Dan. 2:44-45, Zech. 12:3-4; 14:1-3).

But putting down earth’s rebellion is only the start. The Bible also teaches that the One who wore a crown of thorns will also remove the curse from which they grew. Zechariah 14:8-9 tells of this wonderful healing that will begin when the King of the Kingdom is received. "And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one."

How Will We Serve the King?
.
Well first, let’s think about some jobs and industries which will no longer be needed in the Kingdom Age. This of course only represents a partial list, as it is impossible to envision just how fully the curse has affected the earth and how much effort mankind spends fighting the consequences of it (Gen. 3:17-19).

It goes without saying that all employment in immoral industries such as Casinos, Nightclubs and Liquor Stores will be gone. While it’s true that there will be unsaved people born during the Kingdom years, all sinful activity will be held in check by the omniscient and instant judgment of God (Ps. 2:9, Isa. 11:4, Rev. 19:15).

Gone too, will be all branches of the military and all factories that manufacture munitions and weapons of war. Every military academy across the world will close as Almighty God’s Word declares , “he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” Micah 4:3.

While it’s true that there will be unsaved people born during the Kingdom years, all sinful activity will be held in check by the omniscient and instant judgment of God

There will no longer be a need for policemen, law enforcement, night watchmen or guards of any kind. All prisons will be closed and there will be no employment relating to the criminal justice system or courts, whether at the state, local, or federal level. This means no judges, lawyers, bail bondsmen, bounty hunters or private detectives.

Since the only people that will die during the Kingdom years are those who commit an open act of rebellion, there will be no hospitals, doctors, nurses, convalescence homes, emergency responders or search and rescue personnel. Drug stores and the pharmacists’ they employ will no longer be necessary and no one will research diseases, run charities or lobby for a social cause. Both the psychiatrist and the psychologist will find different employment for lack of customers.

While farming will still be practiced, good crops will grow naturally and it will be impossible to grow a weed. Both the pesticide and fertilizer industry will cease and there will be no need for either the veterinarian or the exterminator. Instead of back-breaking work, during the Kingdom, farming and gardening will be fun!

Since the weather and climate will be perfect, there will be no weathermen to try and predict it or insurance companies to sell products that protect against it. Manufacturing will cease for any and all products that battle rust, corrosion, mold and decay. Even the cosmetic industry will stop as there will be no battle against the ravages of the aging process.

So what then will believers do and how will they serve the King of kings in the Kingdom?

The Lord Jesus taught that the key was faithfulness. “And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.” Luke 19:17. By inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul reminded believers, “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:2.

Jesus will give each believer a perfect position in the Kingdom based on their faithfulness to Him today.

The Lord told his disciples, “Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32. God told Israel, “as a young man marries a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.” Isaiah 62:5. The Lord Jesus Christ loves us as his bride (Eph. 5:23-32)!

God promised by the prophet Zechariah, “In that day, says the LORD of hosts, everyone will invite his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.” Zechariah 3:10.

What a beautiful description of the coming Kingdom. Just as in Solomon’s day, where every tribe and family of Israel was given their own piece of property by the Lord, Zechariah assures us that the whole earth will be settled in peace and safety when the “greater than Solomon” rules with a “rod of iron” (Ps. 2:9, Isa. 11:4, Matt. 12:42, Rev. 19:15). There will be no need for locks on your doors or high fences to keep your neighbors honest.

Some might be thinking after these reflections on the Kingdom, can anything be greater? You had better be sitting down!

At the conclusion of the thousand year Kingdom on earth, God will create a new heaven and a new earth where all believers of all ages will live with Him forever.

At the conclusion of the thousand year Kingdom on earth, God will create a new heaven and a new earth where all believers of all ages will live with Him forever (Isa. 66:22, 2 Peter 3:13, Rev. 21-22:1-5). As wonderful as we have seen that this earthly Kingdom will be, the ETERNAL dwelling place with Christ will be exponentially better!

The Apostle Paul said, “I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knows) such a one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knows) how that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” 2 Corinthians 12:2-4.

Paul could only say that it would be a crime to try and describe with earthly language the beauty of God’s heaven. If you only had in your language the words, “wet”, “soaked”, “damp” and “moist” could you describe to someone the vast and glorious Pacific Ocean? What would you tell them? It’s really, really damp! It’s a large wet and moist place! To even attempt it would be a crime!

Is it any wonder that God let Satan give Paul a thorn in the flesh after he had been given an eye witness view of such heavenly things (2 Cor. 12:7)?

Let us therefore keep our eye’s fixed on our Savior, remembering the future He has planned for us, while we labor in the valley, introducing others to the Good Shepherd who longs to bring them to such heights as well.

For, “without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

The perfect Boss, the perfect job, perfect co-workers, in a perfect place, with perfect pay, and an endless day…what a Rewarder indeed!

For Thy Good - IFB Music



For Thy Good
(Psalm 23; 25:12; 37:23 Rom. 8:26-32, James 1:2-5)



Despise not, the day of small things

When foolishness, they seem to be

Remember, that I am with thee

To show thee, great and wondrous things



I'll despise not Thy day of working

When calamity reigns as king

For in such, a dark hour

Thy glory and will shall I see



And then you shall understand

That all things work for good for thee!



So despise ye not, My day of small things

In the day of impossibilities!



Now despise vain and foolish thinking

Which excludes my perfect will for thee

I’ll despise not, Thy day of small things

Which makes known Thy ETERNAL ways

For all things, work together for Thy good
