The Coronavirus, the King of Fears and The ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS LORD of LIFE!

In light of our day's national and global fears and panic relating to the Coronavirus; do your part to be safe and relax, especially if you are a child of Almighty God (John 10:27-30; Rom. 8:26-39). Be the stability and light in Jesus that this fallen world needs to see and may Almighty God use us to share His ETERNAL LIFE and PEACE to a dying world who needs Him desperately. For we serve the ETERNAL KING of LIFE and NOT the murdering king of fears (John 1:14; 8:44; 11:25, Heb. 1:2-3; 2:12-16, Rev. 1:17-18; 5; 19:11-21)! Have faith in Almighty God, who is our LIFE and be VICTORIOUS for His glory (1 Cor. 10:31; 15:54-58, 2 Cor. 2:14, Col. 3:1-4)!

In light of our day's national and global fears and panic relating to the Coronavirus; do your part to be safe and relax, especially if you are a child of Almighty God!


Death has always been the most misunderstood event in the world since Adam's fall (Gen. 3, Rom. 5:12-21). It is the KING of all fears and phobias and has been Satan's despotic fear-monger over the children of Adam since the fall (Job 2:4, Rom. 3:23, 7:24, 1 Cor. 15:25-26, Heb. 2:14-15). Death was conceived with Eve's first transgression and has reigned mercilessly with terror since the Garden of Eden. All of Adam's line since his fall have become mortal, fallen and because of transgressions subject to Death's power (Gen. 5, Rom. 3:23; 5:12-21, Heb. 2:13-15). Since the Tower of Babel, countless godless philosophies and religions (spiritual philosophies) of fallen man have tried to explain the REALITY of death, tragically ALL of the world's unregenerate perceptions have been woefully inaccurate and ETERNALLY fatal (Prov. 14:12, Rom. 1:18-32). Civilizations since the Tower of Babel have given over their entire culture and societies to philosophies and superstitions that seek to answer the mystery of death and the afterlife and ALL have failed (Rev. 17:1-2). The biblical definition of death is the separation of the soul and spirit from the body (Eccl. 12:7, Matt. 27:50, Luke 23:46, Acts 7:59). The body, which is flesh, returns to the dust of the earth, while the soul and spirit of the person remain ETERNAL. The soul and spirit of an individual which has experienced death will either go to Sheol (the waiting place and abode of the lost dead until the Great White Throne judgment - Rev. 20:11-15) or into the presence of Almighty God (Luke 23:42-43, Acts 7:59, 2 Cor. 5:6-8).

 In the death of the lost, Almighty God summons that individual into the presence of ETERNITY to await His FULL and FINAL judgment at the GREAT WHITE THRONE.

It is in the death of the lost that Almighty God summons that individual into the presence of ETERNITY to await His FULL and FINAL judgment at the end of time called, the GREAT WHITE THRONE judgment (Eccl. 12:13-14, Matt. 12:36, John 3:36, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). In that Day, at the end of time, one will give a FULL account unto Jesus Christ - Almighty God's PERFECT RIGHTEOUS STANDARD - (Gen. 18:25, Acts 17:31, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 John 2:1, Rev. 20:11-15) according to ALL their works based on their failure and violation of Almighty God's ETERNAL spiritual and moral absolutes of time (Eccl. 12:13-14, Matt. 12:36, Rom. 3:23, 2 Thess. 1:8, Rev. 20:11-15). Dear friends, think on that ETERNALLY sobering REALITY for a moment if you can. We, apart from Almighty God's saving grace, WILL GIVE a FULL account to the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS One for ALL our life's thoughts and deeds. Even if a man lives a thousand years and then steps into ETERNITY in death, all his past will evaporate within a millisecond and he will be FULLY consumed with the ETERNAL present. All that that man brings with him into ETERNITY is his rebellion and defiant heart and a raised fist against His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator. Who my dear friends can EVER stand in His RIGHTEOUS PRESENCE apart from Christ's saving grace? Oh, the HORRIFIC SOBERING REALITY OF ETERNITY without Almighty God's saving grace!! No wonder in that Day that NO ONE will say boo; for ALL will see PERFECTLY their EXPONENTIAL wretched estate before Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL PERSON and ALL will FULLY KNOW that they are RIGHTLY and JUSTLY condemned (Acts 17:31, 1 Peter 4:18, Phil. 2:9-11, Rev. 1:13-18; 20:11-15).

 One's death is the FINAL ETERNAL summons to stand before the ETERNAL Judge and to give a FULL account for his works done in time!

One's death will NEVER transpire without Almighty God allowing it to be in light of His all-knowing wisdom of His ETERNAL omniscient mind. One's death is the FINAL ETERNAL summons to appear and stand before the ETERNAL Judge of the world and to give a FULL account for his deeds done in the flesh here in time (Heb. 9:27). My friends, no matter how one's death occurs (peacefully, tragically, unexpectedly, violently etc...), the means thereof can NEVER be compared to the horrific REALITY of coming face to face with the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS presence of Almighty God. This "life" or earthly existence here in time is all about Adam's fallen race to individually make an ETERNAL choice; To choose a RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL existence with their Creator in RIGHTEOUSNESS, Peace and HARMONY (Rev. 21-22:1-5) or to follow one's own lawless will and Lucifer's LAWLESS rebellion against Almighty God's ETERNAL PERSON and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES  (Matt. 25: 41, John 8:44, Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 20:11-15).

This life is all about mankind to individually make an ETERNAL choice; a RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL existence with their Creator in RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE and HARMONY or to follow one's own lawless will and Lucifer's LAWLESS rebellion against Almighty God's and His ETERNAL  RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES.

Satan, the fallen angelic tyrant of Adam's fallen race holds the leash to man's greatest enemy and has used this dreaded consuming despot and monster to hold his power, terrorize and control mankind (Gen. 3, Job, 2:4, Prov. 27:20; 30:16, John 8:44, Rom. 5:12-21, Heb. 2:14-15)(Gen. 3, Rom. 5:12-21). Satan's desire is for fallen humanity to do his godless will and encourage humans to violate Almighty God's spiritual and moral laws (Eph. 2:1-2; 6:12, Rev. 12:9). In the end, the author of death himself will be subject to the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS judgment of Almighty God, where He will be tormented FOREVER and EVER by the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and to be consumed FOREVER in the Lake of Fire's ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS flame (Deut. 4:24, Jer. 23:29, Matt. 3:12, Mark 9:43-45, Rev. 20:10).

In the end, the author of death himself will be subject to the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS judgment of Almighty God, where He will be tormented FOREVER and EVER by the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God!

My friends, there is ABSOLUTELY NO HOPE for this fallen world when it abandons their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and gives themselves over unto their own darkened reprobate mind; for in doing so they willingly have put their necks under Satan's demonic tyranny and death's dread and eventual sting (Isa. 5:20, Matt. 6:23, Rom. 1:18-32, Eph. 2:1-2). Yet millions upon millions that once have lived and those now who are presently living are exercising a vain existence here in time and rejecting the ETERNAL Holy Spirit's RIGHTEOUS ministry to call ALL to repent and be delivered from the wrath which is to come (John 3:16-17; 16:8-11, Acts 17:31)!

 My friends, there is ABSOLUTELY NO HOPE for this fallen world when it abandons their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and gives themselves over unto their own darkened reprobate mind.

Hear me my dear friends! 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? 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!

A Far Greater Tyranny Than Big Government



















The Lord Jesus talked of a far greater tyranny to man than Big Government, excessive taxation, burdensome mandates and ceaseless intrusions into the lives of its citizens.

“Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant [slave] of sin” (John 8:34).

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned…. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one….That as sin hath reigned unto death” (Rom. 5:12,17a; 21a).

O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” (Rom. 7:24)

(Other verses: Job 14:1-4; Psalm 51:5; Eph 2:1-3; Rom. 3:23, 5:12, 17a, 21, 7:14-25)

Satan's Oppressive Rule Over Fallen Mankind

And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage (Heb. 2: 13-15).

“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38).

And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others (Eph. 2:1-3).

[In light of Lucifer, i.e., Satan] That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” (Is. 14:17) (Other verses: 2 Cor. 4:4; Luke 4:6-7; Rev.12, 13)

True Freedom and Deliverance!

Only in Christ is there great freedom and deliverance from the bondage of Satan, our human depravity, and the outworking of sin and its terrible consequences (John 8:32, 36; Rom. 7:24-25; Heb. 2:14-16). Humanity has never and will never be able to govern itself, not in this fallen world. Tyranny and the unbridled passions of man will always win the day. Six thousand years of human history has testified to that fact. Our Founding Fathers realized that truth, and that only a moral and God-fearing people would ever have a chance of outworking the kind of human government that could check the depraved appetites of fallen humanity and preserve the basic liberties and freedoms endowed by their Creator. We as a nation today have discarded a sense of healthy morals and ethical guidelines, and are sadly reaping the tyrannical social consequences. Oppressive tyranny is not too far off here in America. When this tyranny and its fearful ramifications fully manifest themselves, what then?
Humanity has never and will never be able to govern itself, not in this fallen world. Tyranny and the unbridled passions of man will always win the day.

Ask yourself this very simple question. How can an imperfect humanity who lives in an imperfect world bring about an absolutely perfect “Utopian” society? (See Romans 7:24.) The answer is a no-brainer yet extremely hard for humanity to digest: it never can. The only hope and deliverance for humanity today is found in its wonderful Creator and Redeemer, The Lord Jesus Christ.

Do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior today? Only He can deliver you from the oppressive tyranny of Satan and the World System. He is the only deliverer from our bondage to Sin and all its awful consequences (Romans 6:23). He has come to set at liberty the sons of men (Rom. 4:17,18, 6:14,17-18, 22; 7: 24-25; 8:2, 21; Gal. 5:1; Eph. 4:8). May it be your sincere desire to put your trust in Him today!

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed (John 8:36).

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!

There’s No Way Out Unless You Walk Heaven’s Trail…

As this world in which we live in today is spiraling frantically out of control, what hope is there at all for its doomed inhabitants? The reality is that this world and its inhabitants are at the end of its course. You know there's nothing like the real world to get one down. There's nothing like the world outside that turns one's world upside down. It makes one feel like they're heading down a one-way, dead-end street.

We are indeed headed down a one-way dead-end street. Not to rain on any body's parade but... we are at the end of the age with Divine judgment just ahead (Matt 13:26-30, Mark 13:28-30). No subjective delusional optimistic appraisal can make these sobering realities disappear. What are we to do?

Adam and Eve in all their wildest dreams could NEVER  have imagined the horrific consequences that would result in that day by opening "Pandora's Box" in the Garden of Eden.

All of the world's accumulated technology and knowledge that we have acquired over the last 6000 years have only made us extremely more violent and oppressive. Time and technology have only served to show and reveal the absolute depravity and hopeless state and condition of man (Gen. 6:5, Isa. 53:6, Jer. 17:9, Romans 1:18-32). Adam and Eve in all their wildest dreams could NEVER  have imagined the horrific consequences that would result in that day by opening "Pandora's Box" in the Garden of Eden (Gen 3). Their trespass and violation against Almighty God's natural and ETERNAL absolutes had all the horrific effects of a 100 megaton bomb (Isa. 24:4-6). So savage and violent had the pre-flood world become after Adam’s transgression that Almighty God wiped it out via the Genesis flood except for Noah and his family (Gen 6:1-13). Is the hour and day in which we live in any different than Noah's day? So violent and corrupted have we – the inhabitants of planet earth - become that we as a world are now at the very door of the Day of the Lord as Almighty God has spoken of (Matt 24, Mark 13:28-30, 2 Tim 3:1-7). What makes anyone think that they can escape the coming wrath of Almighty God? We have exponentially transgressed His natural laws, we have exponentially violated His spiritual ETERNAL absolutes, and we have sown our own godless way and have reaped the horrific consequences. It is this horrific reaping that has led us to this very moment in time (Isa. 24: 4-6, Gal 5:19-21, 6:7-8).

Biblical Objectivity

Try to stand back and objectively look at the span of time here on earth; from the Tower of Babel with its global catalyst of godlessness and passion to live an existence without Almighty God, to the worldly brilliance and idolatrous society of Egypt. From the autocratic power of the Babylonians, to the strength of the Media Persians Empire. From the conquering speed and philosophy of Greece, to the decadent and oppressive Roman Empire. From the genus and barbarity of the Aztec, Mayans and Incas, to the godless vacuum of the European nations and lust for war. All of these civilizations have been one GODLESS, violent, decadent and oppressive cesspool of death and horror to the world's inhabitants (Rom. 1:18-32). Almighty God describes some of these global empires as ferocious wild beasts to help us better understand them from a heavenly perspective (Dan 7, Rev 13:1-2). My friend what is most astounding is that we haven’t even peaked as a fallen race until we reached the 20th century. There has NEVER been a more violent, murderous, oppressive, narcissistic and decadent century in the history of mankind. All of our world’s exponential technological advances made in this last century has given the world more power at their fingertips to show forth the fallen godless passions and violence of the human heart (Jer. 17:9). Of course, we have had some noble occasions and humanitarian exploits throughout this time, but these are but a faded blip and pale exponentially in comparison to mankind’s history of violence, lust and decadence (Rom 3:3-23). The outworking and horrific consequences from the billions that have inhabited planet earth since Babel have completely ravished and laid waste the lands and the world's inhabitants. The godless Babelology that first raised its head 4200 years ago (Gen 11:1-9), has thoroughly engulfed and saturated the world. This Babelology has made spiritually stinking drunk its billions of inhabitants (from Babel to present- 4200 years) to the crucial realities of time and eternity (Eph. 2:1-3, Rev 17:1-2, 18:24).

All of our world’s technological advances have exponentially given the world more power at their fingertips to show forth the fallen godless passions of our hearts.
,
Even America, which was founded during the Philadelphia Church Age (from about 1700 to about 1900 – the church of the “open door” – Rev 3:7-13), was established on the bedrock of natural and moral laws and foremost acknowledged the Person of Almighty God. America was founded at the end of the world’s timeline which spans about 4200 years. Just in these brief 235 years of our nation's history, we have reached socially and culturally the point of no return. There has been no other nation in the world's history that has sent out the Biblical Gospel light as America has. America has been a beacon of freedom to the world's oppressed and has been a global dam holding back the world’s anti-Semitism, oppressive tyrannies and the unbridled passions of fallen despots, especially in this last century. Let me ask you this very sobering question, “What do you think will become of the world once America restraining influence has been removed from the scene?” The very sobering answer is... GREAT tribulation and global antiSemitism (Zech 14:2, Rev 6-16).

It‘s All Been Tried

Through the 6000 years of recorded world history, countless forms of ruling classes have established governments dominated by their godless unbridled ideologies (Rev. 17:2). All of these nations have used Babel's blueprint in establishing their own delusional culture and systems. Out of all of these earthly (carnal) sensual ideologies (1 Cor. 2:14, 3:19, James 3:15) have sprung forth a vast spectrum of oppressive and damnable religions (spiritual philosophies), totalitarianism, fascism, socialism, oppressive dictatorships and despots, monarchies, democracies, republic’s etc... ALL, of which have met their end because of decadence or violence. The ones that remain today are on the verge of collapse. What hope is there at all for the future of the world's inhabitants when all of the world's kingdoms are nothing but oppressive and violent destroyers? The sane answer is an obvious NONE, absolutely NONE. Without Almighty God’s outside intervention (John 3:16-17, Gal 1:4) mankind will eventually make its self extinct. Mankind has repeatedly beat its drum to many different tunes patterned after the Babel blueprint and all have been disastrous (Rom. 1:18-32, Rev 17:1-2,5, 18:24).
.
There is absolutely NO HOPE or WAY OUT of our temporal earthly confines and our un-regenerated fallen human state and condition without Jesus Christ!

There is absolutely NO HOPE or WAY OUT of our temporal earthly confines and our un-regenerated fallen human state and condition without Jesus Christ (Rom. 5:12-19, 7:24-25, 1 Cor. 15:21-22). There are many voices and trails that lead to ruin, but there is only one trail that will lead us to a place of deliverance and redemption. That heavenly trail leads to Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ. It is by FAITH alone that we look objectively outside of ourselves and choose to believe Almighty God and His unchangeable Word and promises (Mark 11:22, 2 Cor. 1:20, Titus 1:2, Heb. 11:1, 6). When we do, we will be set free delivered and set free from the oppressive bonds of this world and have access to Heaven's domain (Eph 1:3, Col 3:1-2).

My friend, there is absolutely no way out, no way out of this living hell, no way, no way out unless we walk Heaven’s trail.

Heaven’s Trail Leads To Eternal Life!

Almighty God has provided the solution, remedy and trail for Adam’s fallen race to follow. He promised Adam and Eve in the beginning that “the seed of the women would crush the head of the serpent (Gen 3:15, Rom. 5:12-19, Heb. 2:14-15, Rev 21:1-7)”. This theme of God’s saving grace and redemption is the life-giving line that flows throughout the entire Bible. God has provided a Savior (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, 1 John 4:14, 2 Peter 1:1)! There is a Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:19-20, Rev 13:8)! There is a narrow heavenly trail that leads to ETERNAL LIFE and REDEMPTION with Almighty God (Matt 7:13-14, John 14:6, 1 Cor. 1:30)!

Jesus stated, Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matt.7:13-14).

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).

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture (John 10:9).

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? (John 11:25-26)

My friend, have your eyes been opened to the horrific realities and conditions of the very hour in which we live in and you find yourself with absolutely NO answers or solutions? There is absolutely NO human remedy. There is absolutely NO human solution for the growing exponential global crisis of our day. No delusional optimistic human appraisal can give you the answers or solutions that you are so desperately looking for or need to give your heart the consolation that it is seeking. My friend with America on the verge of social collapse and anarchy before us, what is one to do?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you (Matt 6:33).

My friend, the world needs to wake up and smell the coffee and let 6000 years of human history testify of our desperate need for our Creator and Savior (Heb 1:2-3). Time will not go on forever. A Day of reckoning has been foretold by Almighty God in which all will give and account (Rev 20:11-15). ETERNITY is where each one of us will abide forever. Our future destiny is not to be found in this temporal fallen world.

Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? It is ONLY through Him alone that we can be delivered from this present evil world (John 3:16-17, 1 Cor. 7:31, Gal 1:4, 1 John 2:17)! Jesus Christ is God's Heavenly trail that will deliver us from this living hell here on planet earth and the Lake of Fire which is to come (Rev. 20:11-15).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
