The Rapture and Kingdom of Heaven are at Hand! That's the Bottom Line!







The phrase, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand,” is the sign-off slogan and repetitive theme of the Ignorant Fishermen Blog. We have used this phrase to confirm with all who read our posts that indeed the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand and that our perspective as believers or even unbelievers is to see the world we live in today from that REALITY and Divine perspective.

Americans today who follow the "game" of politics generally miss - especially in the light of today’s global setting - that ALL things are working towards this end; that the Lord Jesus' Kingdom of RIGHTEOUSNESS is at hand!

If leaders of the American political spectrum - Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Howie Carr, Megan Kelly, President Obama, Richard Blumenthal, Harry Reid, John Larson, Bill and Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Nancy Pelosi, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, etc. - truly comprehended the day and the hour in which we live, they would put aside all of their political agendas and ideological differences and unite under and seek after the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and preach with trembling fear that, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (Matt. 6:33)!”

They would put aside all of their political agendas and ideological differences and seek after the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and preach with trembling fear, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
,
If these talking heads of American politics would truly believe Almighty God and His Word, they would comprehend the REALITIES of our day and that of both TIME and ETERNITY. Sadly, most ALL today will not receive Heaven's ETERNAL REALITIES for they are absolute foolishness to them. These all give a deaf ear to the prophetic alarm bells and siren warnings EXPONENTIALLY sounding forth of the GREAT and coming Day of Reckoning (Rev. 6-19).

One’s ETERNAL destiny and future IS NOT rooted and comprised of what is going on in Washington D.C., the United Nations, the European Union, etc... etc... O man, I wish I could convey this WONDERFUL REALITY to earthbound evangelicals who are dreaming of a Christian conservative earthly utopia here in this fallen world without the risen Messiah reigning on earth. We should all certainly do our part to seek the peace of this land and world, but while never losing sight of our ETERNAL Lord, our heavenly country, our heavenly calling and our Lord's soon coming GLORIOUS Kingdom (Dan. 2:43-44, 7:13-14, Matt. 25, Phil. 3:20-21, 2 Tim. 4:18, Heb. 11:16, Rev. 21; 22:1-5). As the day gets exceedingly EXPONENTIALLY worse in every realm and facet of our culture, society, and the world our GREAT and BLESSED HOPE is knowing that our Lord is at the door to receive His own, to deliver us from these vile bodies of death and to be with Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS FOREVERMORE (Rom. 7:24-25, Phil. 3:20-21, Titus 2:13, 1 John 3:1-4).

ETERNAL REALITY is ETERNAL foolishness to them while temporal existence is the subjective eternal focus with all-purpose;

The GREATEST human need IS ETERNAL salvation and the deliverance from the Wrath to come (John 3:16-17). To the absolute majority of this fallen world, our last statement is a foolish fairy tale void of all reality (Rom. 1:16). To the children of darkness, ALL is darkness, ALL is subjective, ALL is relative and ALL is about time (Acts 26:18, Eph. 2:2-1). ETERNAL REALITY is ETERNAL foolishness to them while temporal existence is the subjective eternal focus with all-purpose; all ETERNAL needs pale in comparison for those living in this brief, little, tangible, temporal world delusional mindset. ONLY the ETERNAL saving grace of Jesus Christ is truly the most important in the light of all earthly issues and endless ETERNITY (Eccl. 1:1-3; Matt. 16:26; 1 John 2:16-17). You will surely NEVER find this reality spoken or presented on the nightly news, “24/ 7” news cycle or talk radio. These mostly mock and slander those who believe and testify of it. These truths have no place in their alternative world reality (John 3:18-21; 17:14; 1 Peter 3:16; 1 John 3:8-10).

All political affiliations and ideologies (Left or Right) that REJECT the claims of Jesus Christ and the Biblical message of Almighty God’s absolute LORDSHIP, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AUTHORITY, SOVEREIGNTY, COMING JUDGMENT, CALL TO REPENTANCE and SALVATION are either consciously or unconsciously waging war against their ETERNAL Creator and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person.

All political affiliations and ideologies (Left or Right) that REJECT the claims of Jesus Christ and the Biblical message of Almighty God’s absolute LORDSHIP, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AUTHORITY, SOVEREIGNTY, COMING JUDGMENT, CALL TO REPENTANCE and SALVATION are either consciously or unconsciously waging war against their ETERNAL Creator and his ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person (Matt. 12:30; Rom. 8:6-8; 11:28; Col. 1:20-21; 2 Thess. 2:11). Unbelief and the rejection of our Creator's ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person and these Biblical realities have opened the floodgates of demonic tyranny, godlessness, deception, rebellion, delusion, anarchy, confusion, lawlessness, and wrath. The abandonment of truth will ruin and waste any individual who rejects the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ and His ETERNAL atonement (John 3:36; Gal. 6: 7-8). Lucifer (the Devil) has a heyday with these people, and like it or not, they are no different than he is (Matt. 25:41; John 8:41-44; 1 John 3:8-10). When fallen humanity abides in the state of UNBELIEF they are Lucifer’s slaves and lawless minions, no matter how much they are either to “the right” or to “the left.” All unbelievers serve his ends one way or the other and in the end, will lose their soul in the ETERNAL GREAT Day (John 3:16-17; 8:44; Acts 10:38, 2 Cor. 4:3-4; Eph. 2:1-2, Rev. 20:11-15).

Many who thought they personally knew Jesus will gnash their teeth when He comes because they rejected His Person in Spirit and truth in favor of their own Jesus.

When all political affiliations and ideologies (Left or Right) are examined objectively from a Biblical point of view, we find that they all have one common denominator: they will NOT receive or allow the sovereign reign and authority of Almighty God and His Word to govern their lives and have preeminence over them. They in some form or another generally dismiss the Bible and reduce it to the mere thought of relativism. These have created an “alternative reality”, an “alternative gospel”, an “alternative Jesus” and an “alternative god” made in THEIR OWN ideological likeness (Romans 1:18-32; 5:12-19). They are deceived, and in their decisions and passions are deceiving others (Matt. 24:4, 11; 2 Tim. 3:13; 1 John 4:1; 2 John 1:7).

The establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven is one of the most misunderstood and least regarded truths of Holy Scripture. No wonder that the Lord Jesus said that His second coming would be as a thief in the night (1 Thess. 5:2, 4; 2 Peter 3:10; Rev. 3:3, 16:15). Many who thought they personally knew Jesus will gnash their teeth when He comes, because they rejected His Person in Spirit and truth for their own "Jesus" (Matt. 7:21-23; John 4:24).

Contrary to today’s popular opinion, the Kingdom of Heaven WILL be established at Christ’s second coming to earth after the seven-year tribulation, when He comes to judge the entire world.

Contrary to today’s popular opinion, the Kingdom of Heaven WILL be established at Christ’s second coming to earth after the seven-year tribulation, when He comes to judge the entire world (Left to Right) for their transgressions against the ABSOLUTE, PERFECT, RIGHTEOUS STANDARDS of Almighty God (Psalm 9:8; 96:13; Acts 10:42; 17:31; Rom. 1:18; 2:16; Rev. 19:11).

The Bible speaks about scoffers in the last days; may you not find yourself in this category (2 Peter 3:3; Jude 1:18)!

Dear friends, Do not look for human remedies to save our day, do not look for human solutions to deliver us from today's EXPONENTIAL global ills, do not look outside the Holy Scriptures to darkness and demonic deception and lies, but seek Almighty God's PERFECT will and TRUTHS for your journey here in time! Our home is in Heaven with our Savior for the Rapture is at hand and soon we will be changed to be as HE is, RIGHTEOUS (1 John 3:1-4).

Signing Off;

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Soldiers of the Cross, Press Onward and Be Not Offended!
















For the servant (slave) of Christ (His soldier); all that he/she possesses is at the total disposal of Almighty God, to be used for His honor and glory here in time (Romans 12:1-5). Be not offended by what God wills, allows or uses in your life to further the Gospel message to a lost and dying world (Matt 11:6, Rom 8:28). Endure hardness as a good soldier (2 Tim 2:3-4). Sometimes the very thing in which we are seeking to preserve or save is to be on the chopping block and removed. Fret not my beloved, Almighty God is in absolute control!
.
Be not offended by what God wills, allows or uses in your life to further the Gospel message to a lost and dying world.

Beware though, this is a crossroad in many saint's lives where they look back and do not make it (Heb 10:38). They become a casualty and are shipwrecked in the faith. History is full of such. Guard your heart and be not deceived. There are many false saviors outside of the will of God for your temporal life that are nothing more than thieves and robbers. Remember Almighty God is absolutely faithful (1 Cor. 10:13).
.
Lucifer our adversary would seek to sift us as wheat to see if our desire for God’s will is real in our lives (Luke 22:31, 1 Peter 5:8). Adversity opens the door for apostasy. Be careful not to be deceived - with or by - earthy mammon, privileges or prestige; Seeing this passing world only through the ETERNAL eyes that Almighty God has equipped His dear children with when He saved us (1 Tim 6:6, 1 John 2:17).

Remember your current position in Christ at the right hand of Almighty God, blessed with all spiritual blessings!

Remember your current position in Christ at the right hand of Almighty God, blessed with all spiritual blessings; That we are but pilgrims and strangers here in time and that ETERNITY is our home, not this little vapor called life (Eph 1:3, Col 3:1, Heb 11:13); Understanding time in its proper perspective, in light of our Heavenly calling is key (2 Cor. 5:19-20, Phil 3:14).
.
Remembering that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).” Be Strong and of good courage, remembering that we already have the victory my beloved (1 Cor. 15:57, 1 John 5:4). Have faith in Almighty God and expect the unexpectable from Him for His glory and honor (Mark 10:27, 11:22, Eph 3:20-21). Give thanks to Almighty God in everything and rejoice in the Lord! (1 Thess. 5:18, Phil 4:4)
.
Remembering His precious promises and the great reward for His faithful saints at His soon coming.
.
"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Cor. 1:20).
.
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Cor. 2:9).
.
"Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing" (2 Tim 4:8)
.
"And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever" (Rev 22:4-5).
.
Beloved of God, ENDURE! To God be the glory! The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at Hand! Even so come Lord Jesus!

Why the CAPITAL LETTERS in our IFB Posts and How to Read It?

















Dear friends of the Ignorant Fishermen Blog and those of the Ignorant Fishermen Brigade!

Greetings in the Name of the Lord, who we eagerly await for His Trumpet sound and our WONDEROUS change!

Dear friends, I am very thankful for a few individuals who emailed us and asked us the question; "Why do we use CAPITAL LETTERS in some of the words which you have chosen to use in your posts?" I can totally see how this can be confusing to many of our readership especially when CAPITAL letters, in general, mean shouting and screaming! 

My dear friends, please be assured that this is NOT the case at all...  The point of us using CAPITAL letters in certain words in our posts and titles is NOT to shout or scream, but to simply emphasize a WORD or to distinguish a WORD apart from another; especially when it comes to the PERSON of Almighty God, His RIGHTEOUSNESS, His ATTRIBUTES, and His HOLY CHARACTER; the ETERNAL and words of EXPONENTIAL proportions.

My dear friends, please be assured that this is NOT the case at all... The point of us using CAPITAL letters in certain words in our posts and titles is NOT to shout or scream, but to simply emphasize a WORD or to distinguish a WORD apart from another; especially when it comes to the PERSON of Almighty God, His RIGHTEOUSNESS, His ATTRIBUTES, and His HOLY CHARACTER; the ETERNAL and words of EXPONENTIAL proportions. Today, most of the time, people and even believers see and read about Almighty God or look at our EXPONENTIAL day in our NON- ETERNAL, finite and subjective fallen world's mindset, level, and perspective (Gen. 1:1, Psalm 90:2, Isa. 40:2855:8-9; John 1:1-4; 6:60-6-3; Col. 3:1-3; Rev. 1:8,11; 22:12-13). This is why it is so hard to get individuals to see the simple ETERNAL truths because their perspective is earthbound. In general, we as fallen humanity speak and talk about Almighty God from a subjective unregenerate earthly human perspective and when we do we miss out on the TRUE meaning of this life and who Almighty TRULY is IS.  (Job 12:12; Psalm 19:7; Psalm 119; Prov. 1:7; John 3:3-7; 6:60-63; 8:43; 10:27; 17:17; Rom. 8:5-10; 12:1-2; 1 Cor. 1:18-31; 2:12-14; Gal. 2:20; Eph. 2:1-2, 4:17-18; 5:17 Phil. 3:3; 20-21; Col. 1:9; 2:2-3; 3:1-3,  Heb. 5:11-14, 1 John 2:2:15-17; 4:1-3).  

So my dear friends, when you are seeking to read our posts, please be assured that we are not screaming at you, however... please read these posts and enjoy them with this IFB prism and perspective of capitalization, emphasizing, and translation in mind. In doing so, you will see that we are seeking to communicate the ETERNAL, SPIRITUAL, the EXPONENTIAL, and the EMPHASIZATION of our day in light of our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator.

In doing so, you will see that we are seeking to communicate the ETERNAL, SPIRITUAL, the EXPONENTIAL, and the EMPHASIZATION of our day in light of our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator.  A few examples below;

ETERNAL vs. temporal (time)
RIGHTEOUSNESS vs. fallen man's "righteousness"
ABSOLUTES vs. relative thoughts and ideals
ETERNAL TRUTH vs. my truth
HORRIFIC vs. horrific (etc.)
EXPONENTIAL vs. the normal
So my dear friends, if you have any questions please be sure to email us!

On Total Display Today; American Political Party of LUCIFER, Alinsky and the Frankfurt School













Dear friends, the more I study and watch the rapid rise of the American Left in America in the last 20 years, it is clearer to me more than EVER that they are indeed the political party of Saul Alinsky's Master! Just look at all they represent today in their godlessness and reprobate mind and in all their ways and doings. Their absolute demonic hatred for America, Americans, our Founding Fathers, Constitutional Law, and a President that loves this nation and founding has been EXPONENTIAL and again TOTALLY DEMONIC!! These are sold out FULLY to demonic lawlessness and are at war with their RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL Creator from top to bottom (Rom. 1:18-32)! No wonder Satan has such a hold on this nation today! He has more EXPONENTIAL power than ever via, the EXPONENTIAL technological advances of our day and his demonic minions in all facets of media (TV, Internet, print news, Hollywood, music industry, etc...)! Lawless and base men and women superabound today in America, who are rich demonic gardens for the growing and feeding of America in the demonic ideology of "Do as thou wilt"! As we look at the present Democratic 2020 presidential platform, we are seeing the demonic chickens coming home to roost and the world stage literally moments away from the Four Horsemen's ride and the revealing of the man of lawlessness (i.e. the Anti Christ) Rev. 6-16.; for once America finally gives themselves over to such full-blown demonic thinking, what will stop the global flood of tribulation from deluging the world (Rev. 6-19)!

Lawless and base men and women superabound today in America, who are rich demonic gardens for the growing and feeding of America in the demonic ideology of "Do as thou wilt"!

This deluge in America and in the world will not stop until Almighty God, the Son's, glorious return to reclaim His world and establish His 1000 Kingdom (Dan. 2:42-43; 7:13-14, Matt. 6:8-15, 2 Thess. 2:1-12, Rev. 1:5-7, 19:11-21)! Thank Almighty God for His grace and mercy on this land and our current president who is just His human vessel holding back the EXPONENTIAL lawless global flood in a world ready to welcome the Anti Christ!

Just objectively look at how the Democratic Party of FDR, JFK, your grandparents, and great grandparents has been radically transformed into a HYPER -LAWLESS Demonic Marxist Machine! Whose political platform is the promotion and works of LuciferSaul Alinsky and the Frankfurt School and the works of the flesh of unbridled men!

My friends, just objectively look at how the Democratic Party of FDR, JFK, our grandparents, and great grandparents has been radically transformed into a HYPER-LAWLESS Demonic Marxist Machine! My grandmother who was conservative and a solid FDR, JFK Dem, would be turning in her grave if she saw the Democratic party of today! She would NEVER recognize it! The Red-Dem political platform of today is the hyper promotion and works of Lucifer (i.e. Satan, the Devil, the Dragon, the Serpent of old (Isaiah 14:12-17, Ezek. 28:12-19, John 8:4, 2 Cor. 11:13-15, Eph. 2:1-2, 1 Peter 5:8, 1 John 5:19); Saul Alinsky and the Frankfurt School (Psalm 14, John 8:44, Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:8-13); and the works of the flesh of unbridled men (Psalm 14, Rom. 1:18-32; 3:10-20, Gal. 5:19-21, Jude 1:8-13)! My friends, as the Left keeps racing to the far, far Left; following their Master's lead (John 8:44); notice how the moderate Republican Party is following their trail and conforming daily to an Alinsky lite. The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, Hillary, Obama, and many on the Left have made no small qualms about being the disciples of Saul Alinsky and applying his tactics in their ever-growing quest for promoting Lucifer's agenda, godless Marxism, power, and control over the American people and the world! Is it no wonder that a 666 global state is just around the corner, where they will willingly worship and give their power and authority to Lucifer; Alnisky's master (John 8:44).
.
Rules for Radicals is a book by Saul Alinsky which is dedicated to the original radical, Lucifer - also known as Satan, the Devil, The Old Serpent, and The Dragon (Rev. 12:2; 20:2). All other dinky despots have their roots in this arch-villain. In this book is found the following:
.
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom." — Lucifer.
,
Today Lucifer is ram-rodding, bulldozing, redefining and tilling the worldly ground for the future Grand Reception of his Ultimate Agenda presided over by his Ultimate Minion, the Anti-Christ. This is all gearing towards placing this one who is evil incarnate over a Godless and Secular World Government. At that time he will totally control all the world's media and vigorously push his godless agenda to the point of total world destruction.

Shama! Listen to what Almighty God's Word states about this time:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" (2 Thessalonians 2:3-12).

The Bible states further: "And they worshipped the dragon ( Lucifer) which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:4-8).

While we see Lucifer's (Satan's) grip squeezing tighter and tighter, and his godless agenda being established right before our very eyes, there is still great hope as we place our trust in Almighty God and His never-changing Word (Luke 11:2; 2 Thess. 2:8; Daniel 7:13, 14; Rev. 19:11-16)! The Bible is the believer's book to be followers of our Savior and to bring glory to His Name in a dark and dying world! May we live out its ETERNAL promises and wondrous truths for God's glory and honor! 
,
Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? If not, place your trust in Him today! You will NEVER be the same!

 For us who personally know the Savior, remember this wonderful ETERNAL truth!

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he (The Lord Jesus Christ) that is in you, than he (Lucifer) that is in the world" (1 John 4:4).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

What the Coronavirus is Saying to Today's EXPONENTIAL Laodicean Church Age and World!















Dear friends, do you have ears to hear during this time of isolation and confinement under the Coronavirus (Isa. 55:7; 59:7-8; 65:2, Matt. 13; Rev. 3:20; 22:17, 20)? The way to see today properly and in perspective is to see things from today's biblical - Laodicean church age - ETERNAL perspective (Rev. 3:14-21)! In light of the Coronavirus; Almighty God is seeking to get us to slow way down and listen to His still small voice, which is found in His Holy Word (Acts 17:24-31; Rev. 3:20; 22:17, 20). We as a nation and world have been moving at EXPONENTIAL speeds - socially and culturally - via the high tech world and abandoning and exchanging TRUTH and RIGHTNESS for lawlessness at the same EXPONENTIAL speeds (Gen. 6; Isa. 5:20, Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-2)! Dear friends, be NOT deceived! Today, we are UNTHANKFUL to the bone and because of our day's EXPONENTIAL technological advances; we absolutely deceive ourselves and actually believe and think that we DO NOT need our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator, and we are "good to go" as we trust our fallen lawless selves (Prov. 12:15; 14:12; 16:25; 30:12, Rom. 6:21, Gal. 6:7) This EXPONENTIAL speed's journey is heading this fallen HIGH-TECH EXPONENTIAL world straight into the Day of the Lord (Isa. 24, Matt. 24. Rev. 6-19)! America is EXPONENTIALLY divided and fractured more than ever and each side deeply rooted and entrenched to their core in their ideology. I personally see total anarchy and civil war in our very near future. The American Left is relentless and each day they are dismantling our nation by playing off and using the fears of lawless Americans. We are at the absolute breaking point as a Republic and Almighty God is shouting out, "Slow down and consider your ways, for My Day is at hand (Rev. 6-19)!" And we know how that will go, Total UNREPENTANCE, the Rapture, then Day of the Lord! INDEED, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Today, we are UNTHANKFUL to the bone and because of our day's EXPONENTIAL technological advances; we absolutely deceive ourselves and actually believe and think that we DO NOT need our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator, and we are "good to go" as we trust our fallen lawless selves!

Dear friends, the Laodicea Church Age is the church age that falls at the end of the Age of Grace (Rev. 3:14-22)! The Church Age began at Pentecost (Acts 2) and will end with the Rapture of the Church. After the Rapture of the Church, the apostate, lifeless and christless church which is left will last 3 1/2 more years until the Mark of the Beast is implemented by Satan under his antichrist after the execution, resuscitation and ascension of the Two Witnesses (Matt. 24:15-19, 2 Thes. 2:3-12, Rev. 11; 13; 14:7-12; 17-18:2). When the Rapture takes place at the beginning of the seven-year tribulation, all believers (Jew and Gentile) in Jesus Messiah will be removed and all that will be left on planet earth will be millions upon millions of apostate "Christians" who have NEVER had a saving relationship to Jesus Christ in Spirit and TRUTH, but played delusion church without and saving relationship the TRUE Christ of Holy Scriptures (Matt. 7:21-23, John 1:12; 3:3-7, Romans 10:2-4, Eph. 2:8-9)!

This final church age will end with the Rapture but the apostate church which is left will last 3 1/2 more years until the Mark of the Beast!

This church age (The Laodicean Church Age) also appears in the EXPONENTIAL technological zenith of man, which through the works of their hands have created a technological society which has NO NEED of their ETERNAL Creator and Savior and have the ingrained mindset that they "need of nothing" spiritually, especially our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Rev. 3:14-22)! Evolution has replaced CREATION, man has replaced ALMIGHTY GOD, lawlessness has replaced RIGHTEOUSNESS, deeds and works have replaced SAVING GRACE, materialism and godless pleasures have replaced a SAVING RELATIONSHIP to Almighty God and the JOY of THE LORD. How many today call themselves "Christians" and even go to "church" and do not follow, obey or recognize the HOLY God of the Scripture and His Savior Jesus Christ! This is the Laodicean mind; a life without Almighty God in RIGHTEOUSNESS and a feel-good, self accommodating, self-gratifying and self-satisfying goodness which can NEVER deliver one's soul in the Day of Judgment (Matt. 7:21-23, Rom. 10:2-4, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 3:16-20; 20:11-14)! Jesus is the One who came to give life and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY in RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 10:10-11)! He is the missing PIECE of our life and when He is received we will find that He is ALL and ALL to His fallen creation (John 5:39-40; 6:35, 51; 8:32-36; 10:10-11; 11:25; 14:6; 1 Cor. 1:29-31, 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Eph. 1-2; Rev. 21:22:1-5).

 Jesus is the One who came to give life and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY in RIGHTEOUSNESS! He is the missing PIECE of our life and when He is received we will find that He is ALL and ALL to His fallen creation!

This Laodicean Church Age is like the rich man who had bigger plans for bigger barns, greater security, and comfort without a saving relationship to His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Luke 12:16-21)! What he refused to learn throughout his vain temporal life is that deadmen take absolutely nothing with them when they die (Gen. 3:17-19, Job. 1:21, Eccl. 1-12, Matt. 7:24-27, John 11:25, 1 Tim. 6:7, 1 John 4:10, Rev. 20:11-15). He was quite comfortable with his material things and sought diligently more comfort in expanding his vain life (Eccl. 1-12)! This man had ZERO ETERNAL REALITY and perspectives and was quite comfortable living out his vain life without His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Rom. 1:18-32, Prov. 14:12)!  No wonder the LORD of ETERNAL LIFE called him a FOOL! "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment - Heb. 9:27". There is no shortage of fools in our day and tragically many of them will die in their sins because they refuse to hear the saving message in LOVE from Almighty God, "Repent and be made right with Almighty God your Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH (John 6:63)!"

There is no shortage of fools in our day and tragically many of them will die in their sins because they refuse to hear the saving message in LOVE from God, "Repent and be made right with Almighty God your Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH!"


The ETERNAL Lamb, Savior, and Propitiation of the world called him a fool, and his unbelief, darkened mind, and delusional thinking came to pass and fell; and ETERNALLY GREAT was his fall (Matt. 7:24-27, Luke 12:16-21, Rev. 20:11-15)! My friends, can you not see that this is our day here in America today and in the world! Technological comforts EXPONENTIALLY abound for all in every facet of life! Whether you have a lot or little it is a good bet that one has internet, cell phones, flat-screen TVs, a house or apartment to live in, a car to drive. government assistance for food, housing, medical coverage etc., bountiful supplies of all types of food and supermarkets, technology, luxury, comfort, and ease! Societal advancements in living, housing, travel, medicine, and life expectancy are taken for granted and have made us for the most part unthankful, greedy, selfless, unhappy, unsatisfied, and complacent!

Our good friends at Prophecy Update have put out this great 12-minute video on the Laodicean Church and we wanted to share it with you! Enjoy to the glory of God!

Even so, come Lord Jesus! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

What is the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God?



















The RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God is the complete ETERNAL estate of moral and spiritual PERFECTION. Nothing lacking, nothing adding, perfect and absolute in all its ways. Incorruptible, indestructible, unchanging, and undefinable. Never can it be tainted nor altered. The fruit and outworking of RIGHTEOUSNESS can ONLY produce peace, completeness, equity, stability, harmony, and order (Isa. 32:17, 48:18, Rev. 21, 22:1-5).

Almighty God is ETERNALLY RIGHTEOUS and in ALL His ways HE is ETERNALLY RIGHTEOUS, COMPLETE, WHOLE, LACKING NOTHING, NEEDING NOTHING, ABSOLUTE and PERFECT in ALL HIS WAYS (bible verses).

For example; 2+2=4 is an absolute. It is complete, whole, perfect, and sound in all its ways; NEVER to be altered, NEVER to be corrupted. Whenever it is used it can ONLY bring about harmony, peace, stability, and order. All the efforts of Satan and man can NEVER change the absolute properties and completeness of 2+2=4 nor can ALL the efforts of Satan (the Father of lies and disorder - John 8:44) and fallen man (Eph. 2:1-2) alter nor change the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS and ABSOLUTE CHARACTER of Almighty God and His Person. Almighty God the ETERNAL Father, Son, and Holy Spirit ARE ETERNALLY ABSOLUTE and ONLY work and create in RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES! He is INDEED HOLY and DIFFERENT from all His finite creation!

Are You Beautiful?

.


















What exactly is "true beauty", one might ask? Well, in a day in which narcissism and pride reign from sea to shining sea, it is pretty sure that very few know what TRUE BEAUTY is and how one may obtain it. In an EXPONENTIAL technological age where one seeks to express their genetic "beauty" globally via the mediums of the day, is it safe to say that the thinking and mindset of the hour is on the temporal and not the ETERNAL

America today is so self-absorbed with the genetic beauty of the flesh.

America today is so self-absorbed with the genetic beauty of the flesh (Prov. 31:30, 1 Peter 1:24)! It is marketed at every level, sought to be lived up to and proudly promoted by the EXPONENTIAL technological mediums of our day. Indeed there is genetic beauty which is beautiful but what did any do to achieve it? When one promotes their genetic beauty in arrogance and pride one is absolutely clueless to the realities of time and ETERNITY (Isa. 40:8, 1 Peter 1:24). For genetic beauty is for a moment and fades away, but Almighty God in Jesus Christ provides and ETERNAL beauty which shall NEVER EVER perish!

For genetic beauty is for a moment and fades away, but Almighty God in Jesus Christ provides and ETERNAL beauty which shall NEVER EVER perish!


Quite simply, "true beauty" is a FREE gift from Almighty God (Rom. 5:16-17; He 6:23). The FREE GIFT of TRUE beauty is provided to all by Almighty God (1 Cor. 1:30). TRUE beauty is our greatest need in the light of ETERNITY'S  FOREVERNESS.

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

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

This pinnacle of wondrous beauty is nothing less than the glorious RIGHTEOUSNESS that Almighty God has provided for His fallen creation in Jesus Christ.

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

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

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

What About You?
.
May I ask you this very sobering question? Do you possess the Beauty of Righteousness that is found only in Jesus Christ? The Bible states in Isaiah 64:6 that “all our righteousness is as filthy rags [bloody menstrual cloths].” All earthly beauty will fade away, as countless billions have experienced and could testify. Only the Beauty of Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS (state of perfection) will endure FOREVER (Matt. 13:43; 1 John 2:15-17, Rev. 22:11).

Only the Beauty of Almighty God’s Righteousness (state of perfection) will endure FOREVER!

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

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Coronavirus - Slow Down and Listen! Do You Have Ears to Hear?














Dear friends, do you have ears to hear during this time of isolation and confinement under the Coronavirus (Isa. 55:7; 59:7-8; 65:2, Matt. 13; Rev. 3:20; 22:17, 20)? Almighty God is seeking to get us to slow way down and listen to His still small voice, which is found in His Holy Word (Acts 17:24-31; Rev. 3:20; 22:17, 20). We as a nation and world have been moving at EXPONENTIAL speeds - socially and culturally - via the tech world and abandoning and exchanging TRUTH and RIGHTNESS for lawlessness at the same EXPONENTIAL speeds (Gen. 6; Isa. 5:20, Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-2)! Dear friends, be NOT deceived! This EXPONENTIAL speed's journey is heading this fallen HIGH-TECH EXPONENTIAL world straight into the Day of the Lord (Isa. 24, Matt. 24. Rev. 6-19)! America is EXPONENTIALLY divided and fractured more than ever and each side deeply rooted and entrenched to their core in their ideology. I personally see total anarchy and civil war in our  very near future. The American Left are relentless and each day they are dismantling our nation by playing off and using the fears of lawless Americans. We are at the absolute breaking point as a Republic and Almighty God is shouting out, "Slow down and consider your ways, for My Day is at hand (Rev. 6-19)!" And we know how that will go, Total UNREPENTANCE, Rapture, then Day of the Lord! The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!


Unbelief is unbelief, is unbelief, is unbelief whether you follow a self-created spiritual ideology (aka. a religion) or a secular political ideology or a lawless ideology or a conservative moral ideology or a traditional ideology etc... etc... For they ALL lie in gross darkness and in spiritual death apart from the RIGHTEOUS saving solution for Adam's fallen race FOUND ONLY in Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION, Jesus Christ!


Unbelief is unbelief, is unbelief, is unbelief whether you follow a self-created spiritual ideology (aka. a religion) or a secular political ideology or a lawless ideology or a conservative moral ideology or a traditional ideology etc... etc... For they ALL lie in gross darkness and in spiritual death apart from the RIGHTEOUS saving solution for Adam's fallen race FOUND ONLY in Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION, Jesus Christ (John 11:25, Acts 4:12, Rom. 5:11-21; 10:4, 1 John 4:10)! For Jesus is the risen ETERNAL Lord and Prince of Life and Lucifer the unrighteous and his tool death have ZERO authority and power over His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS PERSON (Isa. 9:6-7, Matt. 28:18, Luke 1:33, 1 Cor. 15:55-57, Phil. 2:1-11, Rev. 1:17-18; 5:11-14)! The Savior of Adam's fallen race and mankind's RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION is found ONLY in the ETERNAL Person of the Son of God, Jesus Christ the Lord; and ALL fears and tyrants including Satan and Death themselves are subject to and powerless in His ETERNAL GLORY and LIGHT (Rev. 1:17-18)!

The Lord Jesus Christ gave His RIGHTEOUS LIFE to be their RIGHTEOUS propitiation and justification and to give unto them ETERNAL life so they may be restored and redeemed FOREVER to enjoy Almighty God in RIGHTEOUSNESS and in PEACE.

My dear friends, Almighty God saw Adam's fallen race's horrific need PERFECTLY; and from before the foundations of the earth has provided a PERFECT rescue boat, a PERFECT way out and a PERFECT arm of deliverance to all who call upon His Name from one's sin, Satan's tyranny and death's reign (Gen. 3, Psalm 55:16, Isa. 43:11, 45:21, John 1:12, Acts 4:12, 16:2-30, Rom. 10:10-13, 1 Cor. 15, Heb. 2:14-15, Rev. 3:20). Almighty God sent His Son into time to be born of a woman, to live a PERFECT LIFE and to give His life for a ransom for the transgression of Adam's fallen race. The Lord Jesus Christ gave His RIGHTEOUS LIFE and shed His RIGHTEOUS blood to be mankind's RIGHTEOUS propitiation and justification for ALL; and to give unto them ETERNAL life so they may be restored and redeemed FOREVER to enjoy Almighty God in RIGHTEOUSNESS and in PEACE (John 3:16-17, 1 Cor. 2:9,  Rev. 21-22:15).

Dear friend, do you know the Lord Jesus Christ?

Dear friend, do you know the Lord Jesus Christ? If not, we would love to show you why you NEED to know Him and how to know Him. This life here in time is ALL about knowing the ETERNAL LORD of LIFE. May you sincerely seek to know the One who loved you and gave Himself for you!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
