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!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at INDEED at hand!
