The RIGHTEOUS Lamb Who GAVE Himself For UNRIGHTEOUS You and Me















There is ONLY One who is RIGHTEOUS and GAVE himself for the sins and transgressions of the whole world! That is what the Passover and Passion week are ALL about (Isa. 53, John 1:29; 3:16-17; 19:30; 1 Peter 1)! Dear friends, the Lamb for a fallen man is the Son of Man, who is the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God! Jesus Christ is our PERFECT Lamb and the PERFECT LOVE of Almighty God the Father for you and me! The Bible states;

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" (1 Peter 3:18).

In light of today's coronavirus epidemic and abounding lawlessness, may your hearts be looking to your ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and the Savior of ALL mankind for ETERNAL HOPE and ANSWERS (John 1:1-4; 11:25; 14:1-6, Heb. 1:2-3; 2:14-15)! All of our ETERNAL solutions are found in Jesus alone!

Do you have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and in Truth as the Bible clearly teaches?.

Do YOU have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and in Truth as the Bible clearly teaches (John 4:24)? If not, be sure to challenge yourself, see for yourself and then place your trust in Jesus today. It is absolutely crucial for you to have Jesus' RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION for your ETERNAL well being (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10)! Dear friends, Jesus will deliver you from ALL of your transgressions against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of Almighty God and the lawlessness of your fallen humanity and heart; and redeem you from sin's ETERNAL ruin (Rev. 20:11-5)! This Passover and Passion week (if you know not the Biblical Jesus as your personal Savior), may you place your trust in Him today as the Holy Scriptures so clearly and simply teach (John 1:12; Acts 16:28-31, 1 John 5:13)! You will indeed NEVER be the same (Eph. 2:1-10, 2 Cor. 5:17-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Shed Blood of Our Passover Lamb ! Bible Verses on The Blood of Christ!
















Since the scattering at Babel, the nations of the world have all tried to come up with a human remedy to answer the haunting effects of guilt and one's transgressions against Almighty God (Rom 1:18-32). Our transgressions are against Almighty God and His ETERNAL spiritual and moral absolutes; and all must give an account to Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS (Rev. 21:11-15). Almighty God has provided us a PERFECT Lanb and Savior, and a RIGHTEOUS remedy to redeem and cleanse us from ALL our transgressions and that remedy is found ONLY in Jesus Christ our Lamb  (John 1:29, 3:16-17, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). Listen to what the Word of Almighty God has to say about cleansing.
 .
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29).
 
but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:19).

Nothing But The Blood of Jesus!

What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus; What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.Oh! precious is the flow, That makes me white as snow; No other fount I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; For my cleansing this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Now by this I’ll overcome—Nothing but the blood of Jesus, Now by this I’ll reach my home—Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Glory! Glory! This I sing—Nothing but the blood of Jesus, All my praise for this I bring—Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

It is only with the blood of the Lamb that one can be cleanse. Do you know the Savior of the world? May it be that you surely do for then will your sins be washed white as snow (Isa. 1:18)

Jesus’ 3 Days and Nights in Sheol Paradise After His Crucifixion!

















It was after the crucifixion of the Messiah of Israel that Satan and godless Israelites rejoiced in their demonic triumph of unrighteousness. They thought that they had done away with “This Man”, this Miracle Worker, this Preacher of RIGHTEOUSNESS, this violator of the Sabbath, the "messiah", this One who claimed to be Almighty God the Son; and it was exhilarating to their godless mind (Matt. 27, Luke 23). As the Sabbath day was about to begin these godless men made their preparation to finish “their” Feast of Passover and partake in “their” man-made traditions (Matt. 15:7-11, 23, John 18:28). Satan the original architect of darkness (John 8:44) was making plans to further His darkened Kingdom and in the delusion of his mind, rejoicing at the murder of the Messiah at the very hand of unbelieving Israel. How perfect must have this thought been in this fallen angelic madman’s reprobate mind? The very chosen nation of Almighty God (Deut. 4:13, 7:6, Rom. 9:4-5), the Apple of His eye (Deut. 32:10, Ps. 17:8, Zech. 2:8), the beholder of all the covenants and promises for the world (Rom. 9:4-5), and nation which was to bring forth the Seed (Messiah) of Abraham (Gen. 22:18, Acts 3:25, Gal. 3:16, Rev. 12:1-5) had been Satan’s chief vessel (Acts 2:22-23, 7:51-54) in the death, violent murder, eradication and violent crucifixion of Almighty God the Son, who abided in human flesh (Isa. 9:6-7, Micah 5:2, John 1:14, 1 Tim 3:16). As these haters of reality - in the physical and spiritual world - went about their delusional godless existence after this barbaric slaying; unknown to them in the abode of the dead something else was taking place.

When the Lord Jesus willingly gave up His ghost on the cross in the ninth hour, His Spirit departed into the nether regions of the earth called Sheol or Hades, the abode of the dead.

When the Lord Jesus cried, "It is finished!" and willingly gave up His ghost on the cross in the ninth hour, His Spirit departed into the nether regions of the earth called Sheol or Hades, the abode of the dead (Matt 12:40, Luke 16:22-31, Eph. 4:8-10, 1 Peter 3:19). This abode is where the spirits of just and unjust men awaited (some excitedly, while the majority horrifically). The Just for the first resurrection (Isa. 26:19, Dan. 12:2, Rev. 20:4-6), while the others in EXPONENTIAL fear for the Day of ETERNAL Judgment that would come at the end of time (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 20:11-15).

This abode is where the spirits of just and unjust men awaited (some excitedly, while the majority horrifically!

Sheol, the abode of the dead, which is in the center of the earth (Matt. 12:40, 1 Peter 3:19) is made up of two compartments. One called Sheol Hell, the other Sheol Paradise (Luke 16:22-31). Between these two realms is a great fixed gulf which neither side can cross (Luke 16:26). These two realms are FOREVER separated by the personal acts of belief and unbelief in the cross-work of Jesus Christ (John 3:16-21; 36; 8:24, Rev. 22:11). Sheol Hell is where the unredeemed and unregenerate spirits of man from Cain unto the last unsaved individual of time awaits for their ETERNAL sentence in the Lake of Fire coming up at the end of time (Rev. 20:11-15). Sheol Paradise is where the redeemed from Adam to the thief on the cross await for the completion of Christ’s redemptive and atoning work on the cross (Eph. 4:8-10, 1 Peter 3:19, 4:6).

Between these two realms is a great fixed gulf which neither side can cross. These two realms are FOREVER separated by the personal acts of belief and unbelief in the cross-work of Jesus Christ.

When Jesus entered into the realm of the dead both groups saw His glorious entrance as He entered into Sheol Paradise. Oh beloved, what rejoicing to the redeemed prisoners of Death’s undeliverable hand (Heb. 2:14-15)! The very One; in whom these individuals from who Adam to the thief on the cross had put their trust in times past for their sinful souls. had descended down into their presence to let them know that ETERNAL salvation was complete and deliverance from the grave/Sheol was a mere 3 days away (Eph. 4:8-10, 1 Peter 3:19, 4:6)! As Jesus Christ abode in Sheol with the redeemed, the once dwellers of time and earth who had now been subject to the nether realms of Paradise rejoiced and fellowshipped with their Savior! Those who had placed their trust in Almighty God's Lamb did not esteem the world's pleasures and godless appetites but looked for a city and Maker who was Almighty God and who hungered and thirsted for RIGHTEOUSNESS more than decadence (Heb.11:13). As the third day came, Jesus told those in Sheol Paradise that He would now rise because of His perfect and sinless life and ETERNAL redemption for these from the grave was now FULLY complete (Matt. 12:40, 1 Cor. 15:55, Phil 2:1-11, Rev. 1:18)!

As the tormented and lost looked across the great fixed gulf and saw Christ arising up into the realms of the physical world three days later, they now fully comprehended that their doom was FOREVER sure!
.
As the tormented and lost looked across the great fixed gulf saw Christ arising up into the realms of the physical world three days later, they fully comprehended that their doom was FOREVER sure. Horrified and filled with fright; their hearts surged to EXPONENTIAL levels of fear! For these godless and lawless transgressors of time, these now knew that FOREVER their fate was sealed and they would FOREVER give a full account for their deeds in the flesh when they once walked on the earth. For the Savior of the world had paid the FULL price and now would be RIGHTEOUS Judge of ALL (Rev. 20:11-15)! As Satan saw His ETERNAL Creator arise from the abode of dead, his prison hold for all of Adam's fallen race, he also was filled with absolute EXPONENTIAL dread and knew that his doom was indeed now sealed (Gen. 3:14-15, John 12:31)! What is absolutely amazing is that Satan is still relentless in seeking to destroy the work of God in light of the horrific dread that is as a battleship chain around his neck (John 8:44).

As Jesus arose, He made himself known to his disciples and 40 days later when He ascended into Heaven, He took with Him the spirits of the redeemed to be in His and His Father’s presence in Heaven.
.
As Jesus arose, He made himself known to his disciples (Matt. 28, John 21) and 40 days later when He ascended into Heaven (Acts 1:9), He took with Him the spirits of the redeemed to be in His and His Father’s presence in Heaven, to await the first resurrection from the dead in which these redeemed will receive a resurrected body of righteousness, which they will be given to perfectly serve and worship the Triune God for EVERMORE (Dan. 12:2, Eph. 4:8-10, Rev. 20:5-6, 21, 22:1-5)! This first resurrection will take place some 2000 years later at Christ glorious return to planet earth at the Battle of Armageddon when He is to reign for a 1000 years (Rev. 19:11-21, 20:4-6).

He has risen indeed!

When Jesus rose from the dead and then was then seated at the Right hand of the Father forty days later (Psalm 110:1, Luke 22:69, Acts 2:34, 7:55, Heb. 12:1-2), He then ten days later on the Feast of Pentecost established His called-out assembly (i.e., the church - Acts 2:1-4) made up of Jews and gentile (1 Cor. 2:13, Gal. 3:28) believers to be an exceedingly wondrous chosen vessel for His glory while Israel is set aside for a season (Rom. 9-11). This “called out assembly" (i.e., the church) would be -each member - individually given the Holy Spirit of Almighty God (John 14:16), have the risen Messiah’s and Father’s Personal indwelling, be seated spiritually at the very Right-hand of Almighty God, and blessed with ALL spiritual glory, praise and lauded as sons of the ETERNAL Father! They also would be given diverse gifts to be used for the glory and outworking of Almighty God until the Rapture. My beloved, who can even begin to comprehend the EXCEEDINGLY EXPONENTIAL wonders that the risen Messiah, the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God has done for the redeemed and for those who love Him (1 Cor. 2:9, Rev. 21, 22:1-5). My beloved, it will take all of ETERNITY to even begin to just taste the WONDERS AND ETERNAL LOVE of the Father.

My beloved, who can even begin to comprehend the EXCEEDINGLY EXPONENTIAL wonders that the risen Messiah, the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God has done for the redeemed and for those who love Him.

As Jesus ascended into the lower regions of the earth and then ascended, He took captive the very captor of the redeemed - DEATH and Sheol - and set the redeemed of Adam's race free FOREVER (Rom. 5:12-21, Eph 4:8-10).

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Cor. 15:55)

"I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death." (Rev. 1:18)

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 whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26).

My dear friend, Do YOU believe this? Do YOU believe that Jesus IS the resurrection and the life? I pray to Almighty God that you do! For our ETERNAL destinies are based on what one has done with Jesus Christ the Savior of the world (John 3:16-17, 36). We have two groups of individuals whose destinies are FOREVER settled that testify to the living that we will be in one place or the other in FOREVER'S ETERNAL future. This Easter may you - as the thief on the cross did (Luke 23:42-43), receive Jesus Christ as your Savior. You will truly FOREVER NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Messiah in the Passover!

What Man is This? Our Passover Lamb! - A Song Set to Greensleeves




What Man is This? 

What man is this that hangs and dies, on Calvary’s cross is bleeding? Forsaken by a world of men, for their souls is pleading.

This, this is Christ the Lamb, the sinless One, the Son of Man Weep, weep for your sins, for you He gives His life.

Why does He go to Calvary, when He caused the lost and blind to see? Oh, wretch for thee He takes your stead that you through Him may live!

Nails, thorns shall pierce Him through, the cross He bears, for me for you. It is finished is His cry! Redemption’s work is done.

In dark despair and hopelessness, Christ rose up from death’s dark abyss! Oh grave where is thy victory, oh death where is thy sting?

He is risen from the grave, to ransom you oh sinful slave!
Glory! Glory! Praise and laud, He lives FOREVERMORE!

This, this is Christ the Lamb, the Word of God, the Great I Am
Who was this upon the tree? The Man the Son of God!
The Man the Son of God!
The Man the Son of God!

The Passover - The Jesus MESSIAH CUT OFF - Isaiah 53/Daniel 9:26/Psalm 110:1
















As Jesus (Yeshua - Yahweh IS Salvation/Deliverance) the Messiah entered into Jerusalem for the Passover of the Lord - which had been rendered useless and reduced to a mere traditional religious lifeless skeleton of a feast, renamed the Passover of the Jews (Lev. 23, Matt. 23: 13-15, John 2:13, 5:1, 13:1), all the air was abuzz with the news of Jesus of Nazareth (Matt. 21:8-11, Luke 19:37-40)!

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

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

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

Lucifer has - then and today - countless unbelieving godless demonic kool-aid drinkers to do his will who (conservative, moderate and liberal) REJECT Almighty God’s saving grace which comes ONLY by His dear Son Jesus Messiah. Conservative, Moderate, Liberal, Progressive, etc… ALL are lost and ALL are fallen.

So we can see that in Jesus' day (2000years ago) the unbelieving mood was similar to our day. It was at that appointed time at the feast of Passover (Isa. 53:1-3, Dan. 9:26, Matt. 23:29-39, 27:25, John 11:47-53) - the sum of all Israel’s unbelief would climax by rejecting, crucifying and condemning their Messiah and ETERNAL Savior (Isa. 53:1-3, Zech. 13:6, John 3:36, Rom. 9-11). What is most astounding is that nation of Israel themselves would be the very vehicle to bring about the FULFILLMENT of this prophecy by Daniel by rejecting their Messiah and having Him put to a horrific death (CUT OFF)! It is by Isaiah’s and Daniel’s prophecy (by the Holy Spirit) some 500-700 years before this event that Almighty God would give His people a window into where their rebellion and continual unbelief would take them (Isa. 53, Dan. 9:26, Matt 27:25). The 70 Weeks of Daniel is given when Israel was in exile because of their gross transgression (Dan. 9). The 70 Weeks of Daniel was given to show what would transpire for the remainder of Israel’s history. It was a timeline that takes Israel from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem to the institution of the Kingdom age under the most Holy (the resurrected Messiah - Psalm 110:1). It was a burning light to make plain what would be, but unbelief and biblical ignorance led to physical and spiritual destruction (Dan. 9:24-26, Matt 26-27, Mark 14-15, Luke 23-24, John 18-19).

Tragically and horrifically, the nation of Israel was absolutely oblivious to that Scripture text and to the exact date that was given by Almighty God of when Messiah would offer his Kingship to the nation of Israel (Dan. 9:24-26, Matt 26-27, Mark 14-15, Luke 23-24, John 18-19). What horrific event that would transpire after His entrance into Jerusalem at this Passover Feast would change the course of Israel for the next 2000 years (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-32, Ezek 39:26, Dan. 9:24-27, Matt. 23: 37-39, 27:23-25, Luke 19:41-45). It would be at THIS great Passover feast of “the Jews” in which 2.7 million pilgrims would fill the city of Jerusalem that the overwhelming majority of unbelieving Israelites would fulfill this Biblical prophecy and REJECT and CUT OFF their Messiah the Savior of the world (Isa. 53, Dan. 9:26)!

It is by Isaiah’s and Daniel’s prophecy (by the Holy Spirit) some 500-700 years before this event that Almighty God would give His people a window into where their rebellion and continual unbelief would take them.

Many Jews and Gentiles who were visiting from other lands had heard of Jesus fame. Multitudes had seen and heard John the Baptist and his proclamation, that Jesus, "IS the Lamb of God that takes away the transgressions of the world” (John 1:29). Multitudes there had been the recipients of Jesus’ healing miracles and had their temporal lives transformed and unshackled from the bondage of demonic oppression, physical infirmities and incurable diseases (Matt. 4:23-24, 19:21, Luke 5:15, Act 10:38). Multitudes had been fed by his provisional compassionate hand (Matt. 14:14-21). Multitudes have seen the signs and wonders that transcend the realms of this world (John 21:25). Multitudes had seen Jesus’ authority and power over Demons (fallen rebellious angels) and how they with horrific fear begged Him not to cast them into the abyss (Matt. 12:28, Mark 5:7, Luke 8:28, 10:17). They had heard His Words which sounded forth with DIVINE AUTHORITY in which the national religious leaders, elites and scholars could not contest against (Matt. 22, Luke 4:32-36). Multitudes heard Him state that He came to save and that the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand! (Matt. 4:17). Multitudes heard Him confront and rebuke the Jewish traditional laws and establishments created by the godless leadership of Israel and lorded their spiritual darkened oppression over the people by their delusional views of righteousness and deeds (Matt. 15:1-20, 23, Mark 8:15).

The 2.7 million Jewish pilgrims ignorantly welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem on that “Palm Sunday” with their unbelieving relativistic subjective thoughts of who Jesus was and in just a few days were fully persuaded by the Satanic leadership's spin machine to outright rejected Jesus Messiah.

Israel during THIS DAY, during THIS FEAST as foretold by the prophet Daniel, was to be FULLY ready to RECEIVE their King, their Messiah! and their God! as He entered Jerusalem!  (Dan. 9:24-27). The 2.7 million Jewish pilgrims ignorantly welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem on that “Palm Sunday” with their unbelieving relativistic subjective thoughts of who Jesus was and in just a few days were fully persuaded by the Satanic leadership's spin machine to outright rejected Jesus Messiah and exchanged their King for a murdering insurrectionist (Matt. 27:20). Oh, my beloved!! Be VERY AFRAID! We as a “Christian” nation here in America are no different! Before you point your finger at Israel’s overwhelming unbelief take a look in the mirror for yourself. We are also a nation that has CUT OFF Israel’s Messiah and have replaced Him with our “own” Christian traditions and rituals and are reaping the horrific consequences. We do not have to look very far to see that we as a nation whose inhabitants are from every corner of the world are just as unbelieving if not more so in light of the boundless accumulated biblical resources and teachings available in our day.

Tragically, the horrific after-effects of this event have followed Israel these last 2000 years as Almighty God's Word stated they would.

Tragically, the horrific after-effects of this event has followed Israel these last 2000 years as Almighty God's Word stated they would (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-32, Ezek 39:26, Dan. 9:24-27). It will be in the near future after horrific tribulation called, “the time of Jacob’s trouble – Jer. 30:4-7” that Israel will be pressed beyond all limits (Zech. 13:7-9, 14:1-4, Rev. 12:6-17). It will be near their end as the armies of the Anti Christ close in for the kill under Satan that the resurrected Messiah will come in GREAT POWER AND GLORY (Psalm 2, 110, Dan. 2:44, 7:13-14, Zech. 14:1-4)! It will be at this time that those who remain of the children of Israel will then connect the dots and weep and wail for their Messiah as if it was their only son (Zech. 12: 9-14, 13:1-2, Matt. 23:39, 26:64, Rev, 19:11-21)! Israel’s greatest time is yet to come with their Messiah (Isa. 2:1-4, 11, Jer. 30, Zech. 8), but till then it will be world oppression, hostility and persecution because they have rejected the Law of Moses and Almighty God’s messengers and Son (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-32, Ezek 39:26, Dan. 9:24-27, Matt. 23: 37-39, 27:23-25, Luke 19:41-45).

My dear Jewish and Gentile friends, the Messiah had to come to be our PROPITIATION and ATONING sacrifice to pay the ransom for our countless transgressions against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes and Person of Almighty God (Isa. 53, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). In the rejection of the Messiah His murder and atoning death was used by Almighty God to DELIVER any who would trust in the Messiah’s Person and work of ETERNAL redemption (John 1:12, Acts 16:29-31, 1 Peter 3:18).

This Passover or Easter ask yourself this simple question in objective reality. How can I a transgressor of the RIGHTEOUS absolutes and ETERNAL laws of Almighty God EVER stand before Him in the Day of Judgment in my rags of filthy transgression (Isa. 6:1-7, Rom. 7:24-25, Rev. 20:11-15)? My dear friend you NEVER will! You need the RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION that only Jesus Messiah offers and has provided for you at Calvary’s cross (Isa. 53). May that be your sincere desire! The blood of Almighty God’s Lamb – his dear Son is the Savior of the world!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Good Wednesday and the Sign of the Prophet Jonah

Dear friend, maybe you were raised to believe - as I was - that Jesus (our Lamb and Savior) was crucified on Good Friday. If one does the math... Friday can never work (see charts below). The "Sign of the prophet Jonah" states it all; The ONLY sign that the Lord would give to the Messiah rejecting leadership of Israel and nation was the sign of the most rejected event and individual of the Bible, Jonah and the whale (Jonah 1:17).

 The ONLY sign that the Lord would give to the Messiah rejecting leadership of Israel and nation was the sign of the most rejected event and individual of the Bible, Jonah and the whale.

 "Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth Matt. 12:38-40)." (Matt. 16:4, 12:39, 11:29, Luke 11:30).

One MUST think like a Jew and not a gentile to understand the biblical settings that take place in the Bible. Too many gentile "Christians" see Jesus, the apostles, Israel, her promises and the Bible with a "western" perspective and when one seeks to do that, they err greatly on the many things even to the damnation of their soul (Rom. 11:24, 2 Peter 3:16). Almighty God used His chosen nation, people, Jewish believers, the lunar calendar, their culture, customs and heritage to bring forth the Holy Scriptures and the flavor of them. Jesus (a Jew - Matt. 1, Luke 3:23-38, John 1:10-14, Acts 2:22-33, Acts 7, Rom. 1:1-3, Rev. 22:16) presented the Gospel to the Jews first and when He taught them, He talked and taught them as "Jew to Jew" and used their customs, heritage and society to teach them the wondrous ETERNAL TRUTHS of Almighty God (Matt. 5-7, 13, 15:24, Mark 10:6, John 6, 10, Romans 1:16).


One MUST think like a Jew and not a gentile to understand the biblical settings that take place in the Bible.

Many to this day who profess to know the Lord Jesus and call themselves Christians, know Him not as set forth by the Holy Scriptures (Matt. 7:21-23, Rom. 10:2-4)? This Passover and Resurrection Sunday may you be sure that you TRULY know the very One who died for our sins and gave His life for us all that we may find forgiveness, pardon and live with Him FOREVERMORE in RIGHTEOUSNESS (Isa. 52:13-15, 53:1-12, John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, Romans 4:25, Gal. 3:13, 1 Cor. 1:30, 15:1-4, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 John 3:5, Rev. 1:5-7)!

 Many to this day who profess to know the Lord Jesus and call themselves Christians, know Him not as set forth by the Holy Scriptures?

The Lord Jesus ROSE VICTORIOUSLY from the grave for ALL, but truly how many of the "ALL" will truly trust Him as their Lord and Savior as set forth by the Holy Scriptures?? Tragically, not many (Matt. 7:13-14, Rom. 10:2-4)!

May you be sure that you know the very One who died for your transgressions and rose for your justification!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

A Man, Our Lamb? Who Was Isaiah Speaking Of? Isaiah 53











Dear friends, read for yourself Isaiah 53 and see for yourself who Isaiah the Jewish prophet was speaking of. Remember to keep in mind also all of the Book of Leviticus; especially Lev. 17:11-14! And also the Book of Hebrews! There is only one RIGHTEOUS Lamb given for fallen man ever to live (Rom. 5:12-21); Who do you say He is (John 1:29, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 5:7, 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Peter 1:18-20; 3:18. 1 John 4:10)?

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all!

Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Worshiping the Lord on Palm Sunday in Coronavirus Lockdown America

Dearly beloved, in light of the coronavirus; we as a church of believers here in America have never experienced anything like this where we are forbidden to gather together as God's people for worship. In light of this epidemic, we must use common sense and do the right thing, however, nothing can close down God's people from gathering together via radio, Zoom or live stream and use the mediums of the day to worship, pray, sing, read God's precious Word, fellowship and rejoice with thanksgiving to Almighty God our Savior! This is a time now - in light of this national crisis - to evaluate ourselves and appreciate our Savior; and the times that we once gathered together as the blood brought saints of Jesus at our local assemblies and to look forward to the day, in the PERFECT WILL of our God, that we will be together again in the House of the Lord!

This is a time now - in light of this national crisis - to evaluate ourselves and appreciate our Savior; and the times that we once gathered together as the blood brought saints of Jesus at our local assemblies and to look forward to the day, in the PERFECT WILL of our God, that we will be together again in the House of the Lord! 

Beloved this Palm Sunday we will not be together in God's house, but we will be so in Spirit and TRUTH, as we welcome Jesus' PRESENCE and PERFECT WILL into our hearts and minds as He rides into our hearts in a very special way to minister to us through the ETERNAL Spirit of Truth and His Word (John 4:24, 14:23-26; 15:1-11; 16:12-14; 17:17; 26-27, Rom. 8:26-29; Gal. 5:22-23, Phil 4:4)! It was on Palm Sunday 2000 years ago that Jesus had His game face on as He entered into Jerusalem to do battle with Satan, death, and to take away FOREVER the sins of ALL who call upon Him in RIGHTEOUSNESS and FAITH (John 3:16-17; Heb. 12:1-3; Rev. 1:17-18)! Beloved, as the precious Scriptures so clearly and simply teach us; that Jesus rose VICTORIOUS from the dead in RIGHTEOUSNESS and lives FOREVERMORE to SAVE and DELIVER ALL who put their trust in Him (John 1:12; 10:25-30; Acts 16:28-34, Heb. 7:25, Rev. 1:17-18)! Beloved, we are not of that spirit which shouted crucify Him, but we are of that Spirit which welcomes the risen Savior into our hearts and minds with ALL joy, thanksgiving and full assurance of faith! Seeking His perfect will for our lives and His total provision for us in RIGHTEOUSNESS (Psalm 27:1-4, 1 Cor. 10:31, Gal. 2:20, Eph. 1; Phil. 4:4; 1 John 3:1-4)!

Beloved this Palm Sunday we will not be together in God's house, but we will be so in Spirit and TRUTH, as we welcome Jesus' PRESENCE and PERFECT WILL into our hearts and minds as He rides into our hearts in a very special way to minister to us through the ETERNAL Spirit of Truth!

Beloved, Rejoice FOREVERMORE that Jesus is the RISEN ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS KING and SAVIOR of your very soul and that He is GREATER in you than the fallen demonic thug of this fallen world (1 John 4:4)! This fallen world may reject Jesus this Palm Sunday, but we as blood brought saints, welcome Him with open arms and hearts as our LORD and KING!

The world and its crisis settings may fluctuate and change, but the LORD Jesus NEVER WILL and NEVER can (Num. 23:19; Psalm 102:27, Isa. 41:4; 44:6; 48:12, Mal. 3:6; John 1;1-3; Heb. 1:2-3;6:17-18; 13:8; Rev. 1:8; 22:13;16)! What stability in such testing times (Psalm 62:2, Matt. 7:24-25; Rom. 8:26-39; 1 Cor. 15:58 )! Adjust, relax, rejoice and count it ALL joy that we are the redeemed of the Savior and He is our ETERNAL inheritance and we His (Gen. 15:1;  Psalm 16:5-11; Matt. 13:45-46, Eph. 1:1-2 Col. 3:1-4; James 1:2- 8; Rev. 22:1-5)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Palm Sunday in America - Will You Receive Him or Crucify Him?












Many in America today are playing the "Christian" role while refusing to believe God's Word and the TRUE Gospel message (Matt. 7:13-23, Acts 4:12, Rom. 6:23, 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 15:1-4, Eph. 2:8-9). No day throughout the year is as revealing as Palm Sunday! The very people who DO NOT want to hear the TRUE Gospel message all year long and despise the Bible will be getting their palms today and playing the hypocrite! For these will welcome Jesus gladly in their time schedule for an hour on Palm Sunday, a few days later on Good Wednesday; shout, " CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM!" Not much has changed in 2000 years to our present day.

 For these will welcome Jesus gladly in their time schedule for an hour on Palm Sunday, a few days later on Good Wednesday; shout, " CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM!" 

Dear friends, how do 2.7 to 3 million people and pilgrims who were attending the Passover in Jerusalem ABSOLUTELY change their heart so quickly; from GREAT RECEPTION to GREAT REJECTION!? It is very simple really. For when individuals TRULY see the Lord Jesus Christ for who He TRULY is from the Holy Scriptures (Isa. 53, John 1:1-3, Rom. 10:2-4,  Heb. 1:2-3, Rev. 1:7), and find out why He came to die for the sins of the whole world (John 1:12; 3:16-17;36, Acts 4:12, 1 John 2:2;4:10); and why ALL need to REPENT and be SAVED (John 8:24; 11:25, Acts 16:28-31; 17:28-31, Rom. 3:23; 6:23, 7:18-25, Rev. 1:5-7), this becomes a crossroad for many (Matt. 7:13-23). That surface, non-rooted, unregenerate, religious spirit was not just prevalent back at the crucifixion of Jesus, but that same spirit is very well alive today preparing this world for the Anti- Christ and the Day of the Lord (Matt. 7:21-23; 1 Cor. 2:13-14, Tit. 1:15; 1 John 2:15-22; 4:1-10, Rev. 3:14-20)! 

"What will YOU do with Jesus?"

It is at this point that the majority of people who "identify" as "Christian" reject the very One they say they follow and give the ONLY RIGHTEOUS Savior of the world, the BIG thumbs down and a shout CRUCIFY Him! Away with Him (John 3:19-21)! Dear friends, I was one such a person before I came to Christ, but by the grace of God, He was very long-suffering to me and in that time I came to the saving knowledge of Him. I had to deny my self, ways, lifestyle, and thinking and objectively believe Almighty God and His Word and when I got to that point my hard heart was convicted and I was finally set free and delivered (Isa. 1:18; 53; John 1:12; Rom. 2:4; 5:6-10, Eph. 1:7; 2:1-10, 2 Cor. 5:17-21, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 Peter 3:18 Rev. 1:17-18)!  Here is a link to my brief personal testimony

It is at this point that the majority of people who "identify" as "Christian" reject the very One they say they follow and give the ONLY RIGHTEOUS Savior of the world, the BIG thumbs down and a shout CRUCIFY Him!

Bring the Biblical Jesus into the religious arena and it is game on and total war (John 3:19-21, Acts 17:24-31, Rom. 1:18-32; 2 Tim. 3:1-5, Jude 1:10)! The tragic REALITY is that the absolute majority of people are very content with their "my Jesus" or "conservative Jesus" or "liberal Jesus" or "moderate Jesus" and VERY UNEASY with the Biblical Jesus of the Holy Scriptures; for to look at that Jesus is to fall flat on our face, repent and be delivered from the wrath to come (Acts 16:28-34)! Just study the Four Gospels and see for yourself the friction and reaction Jesus received from the demonically governed religious masses and their leaders (Matt. 7:21-23; 15:1-9; 16:1-4; 21; 23; 26:57-68, Mark 3:1-6, Luke 14:1-6; 19:47; 20:9-23; 22: 1-7; John 5:18; 37-43; 7:15-20; 8:42-59; 10:24-30; 19:15; Rom. 8:5-8; 1 Cor. 1:10-14).

The tragic REALITY is that the absolute majority of people are very content with their "my Jesus" or "conservative Jesus" or "liberal Jesus" or "moderate Jesus" and VERY UNEASY with the Biblical Jesus of the Holy Scriptures!

It is in Almighty God's GRACE, MERCY, and LOVE that He sent His Son to die for our trespasses and sins against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS PERFECTION of Almighty God (John 3:16-17). If we could be "good enough", God the Father would have NEVER needed to send His RIGHTEOUS Son to die for the sins and trespasses of the world; and to be the RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION for our fallen humanity and unrighteous deeds (Isa. 53, Mark 10:45, John 3:16-17, Rom. 6:23; 10:2-4; 1 John 4:10)!


The Lord Jesus came into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to do battle with Satan, death and the sins of ALL the world and by the end of the week; on the first day of the week; He defeated them ALL and then was accended to the Right hand of God the Father.


Dear friends, Let me challenge you this Palm Sunday as someone did me thirty years ago. Do you really have a saving relationship to Jesus Christ as the Holy Scriptures so simply and clearly teach? I like to challenge you to objectively and prayerfully read the Gospel of John and see for yourselves. Either be real with God or do your own thing without Him. We cannot change our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator nor bring Him down into the gutter of our fallen unregenerate mentality (Matt. 15:1-20, Rom. 1:18-32; 10:2-4; 1 Cor. 1:29; James 2:10). We must BELIEVE that He is and that He is a rewarder of all those who diligently seek Him (Heb. 11:6)! The Lord Jesus came into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to do battle with Satan, death and the sins of ALL the world and by the end of the week; on the first day of the week; He defeated them ALL and then was accended to the Right hand of God the Father (Psalm 110:1, Isa. 53; Matt. 28:6, John 2:18-22; Acts 1:10-12; 2:22-38; Rom. 1:1-4, Phil. 2:5-11, Heb. 1:2-3, Rev. 1:17-18, Rev. 21; 22:1-2). That is Who we need to believe in with ALL our hearts! He died for us that we may live FOREVER! This Palm Sunday what a day to receive Him into your heart in Spirit and in TRUTH if you have never done so! May it be!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

What must I do to be saved and go to Heaven?


My Very Brief Testimony

The One I Thought I Knew
I Sold My Soul to Rock N Roll But Jesus redeemed Me


Why call Me Lord, Lord and do not the things I say?

You call Me the Way and walk Me not!
You call Me the Life and live Me not!
You call Me Master and obey Me not!
You call Me Bread and eat Me not!
You call Me Truth and believe Me not!
You call Me Lord and serve Me not!
If I condemn you blame Me not.
