We ARE The Last Generation: Biblical Proof

The End Times have fascinated many a soul since the time of Daniel. When Daniel was shown “visions of the End” (in the Old Testament), he initially had NO IDEA about the meaning of what he was seeing or WHY! In fact, the archangel Gabriel had to come down and explain the meaning of the vision to him.

And just imagine this for a moment, folks. Imagine if you had lived back during the times of Daniel….Imagine you saw this awesome, dreadful vision but you had NO IDEA what that vision MEANT! But yet, you KNEW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that bad things were about to happen, as it pertained to God’s Wrath! Imagine how HEAVY that would weigh upon your HEART and SOUL!

Okay, now fast forward to the times of Jesus & his disciples upon the Earth. Jesus’s disciples, like Daniel, were ALSO highly concerned about the End Times and thought often ABOUT them, apparently. And one day, they came to Jesus privately and asked him what the signs of the “end of the age” would be. And Jesus answered them. This is all recorded in the Book of Matthew 24 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24].

======================================================================

It reads as follows:

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

=========================================================================

Okay, so right off the bat, Jesus told us SEVERAL signs of the End Times in Matthew 24:

THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS:

  • There shall be many “false Christs” (i.e. people falsely claiming to be Jesus/the 2nd coming of Jesus)
  • There shall be wars and RUMORS of wars
  • Nation shall rise against nation; kingdom against kingdom
  • Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes, in diverse places

These 4 above signs (all well under way already, in today’s world) are what Jesus calls “The Beginning of Sorrows”. But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..there’s more:

  • Christians shall be delivered up to be afflicted, and killed
  • Christians shall be hated of all nations for Christ’s name sake
  • Many will be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another
  • Many false prophets will arise & deceive MANY
  • Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold
  • And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come

Okay, so interestingly enough in Matthew 24, we’ve got 10 signs total that Jesus has given us there in that passage of Matthew 24: 1-14! (Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?) Now…..has there been any actual evidence OF those 10 signs coming to pass already, in today’s world? The resounding answer is ofcourse, YES! Let us examine:

Here are all the signs that we’re living in the Last Days (talked about in more detail), while down below the url, I’ll give summaries of the “proof” of the 10 signs mentioned in Matthew 24:

Explaining Why Liberals Are So Desperate To Find Things to Be Offended About

Also, words such as:

    • Homophobic
    • Islamophobic
    • Hetero-normative
    • Toxic masculinity
    • Politically correct
    • Gender-fluid
    • Cisgender
    • Transphobic

8.) Many false prophets will arise and deceive MANY. CHECK!

But by “false prophets”, the bible’s not JUST talking about those falsely claiming to be Christ! It’s talking about other people, too……The Pope, Catholic clergy, wayward Christian pastors, liberal college professors, secular scientists, entertainers, authors, wayward Christians, atheists and/or people living in sin (as in, PERPETUAL SIN), etc.

9.) Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. CHECK!

10). And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world unto a witness to all nations; and then the End shall come. [CURRENTLY IN PROCESS!]

I’ve met more than a few foreigners living here in the United States who are of other religions who’ve NEVER heard of Jesus before! (SERIOUSLY!) So apparently, not ALL souls of the world have had a chance to hear about Jesus, yet. But ONCE they do…….THE END WILL COME!!!

=========================

So there’s much debate on just WHAT generation Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24. From original glance at the biblical text, it would appear that Jesus is talking to his 12 DISCIPLES’ generation! SO the average person would think, “Well, the Earth is still here some 1,985 years later, so I guess Jesus’s word didn’t come true, then!” But to THOSE skeptics that say as such, I say to them all in response “NOT SO FAST!”

Jesus had given his disciples a good 10 SIGNS! (And think about it, that’s ALOT of signs, folks! Alot!) So now lets look at the exact wording that Jesus used in Matthew 24: 34: “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till ALL these things be fulfilled“. 

Okay, now exactly WHAT generation is Jesus talking about, there? Does he mean the generation of his own time, his disciples’ time? Or does he mean THE MODERN GENERATION? Lets take a closer look at the very LAST part of Jesus’s statement: “till ALL these things be fulfilled”. What things? The 10 signs!!!!!!! 

Therefore, let me put this differently. THE generation that Jesus is talking about is THE End Times Generation that would see ALL “10 Signs” come to pass……SIMULTANEOUSLY! Or in other words, WE are that LAST generation, folks! WE (humankind) on this Earth have ALREADY lived through the first 9 SIGNS, with the 10th one now BEING IN PROCESS!!!!!!! That’s how WE can know that WE are “The Last Generation” of HUMANKIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which means Jesus’s 2nd return to the Earth is EVER. MORE. CLOSER. More closer than what we had EVER initially imagined! Therefore, we must REPENT of our sins! That means to give them up and STOP doing them! STOP doing the things that YOU know in YOUR heart and soul is displeasing to God/Jesus! Time is of the essence, folks! We NEVER know when we’re going to DIE! Time to GET RIGHT with Christ! Time to GET OUR HOUSES IN ORDER! 

Jesus had THIS to ask of the Christians that he KNEW would be living on the Earth around the time of his 2nd Return to Earth: “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

I’m gonna repeat that once more so you, dear reader, can MEDITATE on Jesus’s question to “the church”: “……NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?” 

Folks, that’s a question that cuts at the VERY heart & soul!!!! Trust me folks, the bible doesn’t call the Lord’s truth a 2-EDGED SWORD for NOTHING! In fact, Hebrews 4:12 states: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”

And folks, that does NOT even included all of the OTHER End Times signs that we’re seeing as well: 

Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased

“Many shall run to and fro” is simply talking about TRAVEL/TRAVELING/TRANSPORT! We have transport ALL OVER THE WORLD right now! And “knowledge shall be increased”. This one’s not hard to figure out, folks! Look at just HOW ADVANCED technology has become, just in the last 5-10 years, ALONE! It is just MIND-BOGGLING! 

Daniel 7:25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, AND THINK TO CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time”

For those in the “biblical know”, think back to the time when Obama “mocked” Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5-7! THIS is what the bible is referring to as it pertains to “mocking the Most High” [God/Jesus].

Also: Think about the June 26, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that “legalized” the concept of “gay marriage” all across the 50 states of the U.S.! This what the bible means when it’s talking about “changing TIMES and LAWS”. And in this context, I believe the word “times” COULD possibly mean “culture”, as in “the culture of our time(s)”. Ofcourse, we could also take that literally, as in, the biblical sabbath “law” was CHANGED from Saturday, the 7th day of the week, to Sunday, the FIRST day of the week by Constantine and the Catholic Church during the Council of Nicea! 

2 Timothy 3: 1-5 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”

One does NOT have to look far to see how we, as a society, and as a global world, have become today, character-wise (as a collective whole). Just hop on Youtube, for example. And think. THINK. Where did the concept of “the selfie” come from? Hint: SELF! Worship of SELF! Me, me, me. me, ME! We’re a self-indulged society.

In fact, just do a minor “trolling” of a random person’s Facebook, Youtube or Instragram page, and you’ll see what I mean. The “average person” is all about likes, subscribers, ratings and so on. Plus the TOTAL ARROGANCE that some of the “most famous Youtubers” have is just MIND-BOGGLING, to say the least!

But then I have to ask myself this question: How did WE, as a society, get here? How did we, humanity, get here to this place where now our self-worth (as a whole) seems to be determined by our looks or how many likes/subscribers we have and so on and so forth? But then the answer hits me, as clear as day: These times were “prophesied” long, long ago, before any of us were EVEN BORN! And what Jesus says will come to pass WILL come to pass! MARK MY WORDS!

But again, all one has to do is examine the evidence! Examine the biblical evidence that we’re living in THE LAST DAYS! The evidence of THE LAST DAYS is ALL AROUND US! Yet, many have their heads in the sand! Yes, there’s been earthquakes and natural disasters before. BUT NEVER TO THIS DEGREE (that we’ve now been seeing in the last 5 years or so) AND ***NEVER SIMULTANEOUSLY!***

Also: Lets us ALSO not forget Revelation, chapter 13! [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13]. This chapter talks about a VERY SOON coming one world gov’t comprised of a one world economy, one world religion and one world political system! The head of the one world gov’t will be none other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And the Antichrist WILL PERFORM **FALSE MIRACLES** IN ORDER TO **DECEIVE** THE MASSES! He will make fire come down from heaven in the site of men, etc.! He will require ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants to TAKE A MARK on their right hand or in their foreheads in order to be able to buy and sell! (JESUS SAID WHOMEVER TAKES THE ONE WORLD GOV’T LEADER’S MARK WILL BE *DAMNED* FOR *ALL* OF ETERNITY! OUCH!) 

And those signs, compared with the Matthew 24 signs, compared with all of the OTHER end times bible signs? Folks, it’s a no brainer! We ARE the Last Generation of the world, Jesus’s 2nd Coming is NEAR and we DO need to repent of all our sins and get saved in the name of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all with ALL my heart! Please don’t say I didn’t warn you! Amen. 

 
 

The 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday): A SIGN of God’s Covenant!

Many “Christian” churches today worship on Sunday, the FIRST day of the week! To many Christians, that is their “Sabbath!” But is that the CORRECT biblical Sabbath? Let us examine:

And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them. Moreover also I gave them MY sabbaths, TO BE A SIGN between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them” – [Ezekiel 20: 11-12]

I am the Lord your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; And hallow MY sabbaths; and THEY SHALL BE A SIGN between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God – [Ezekiel 20:1 9-20]

“For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it

– [Exodus 20:11]

“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you” – [Exodus 31:13]

“Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generationsfor a PERPETUAL COVENANT” – [Exodus 31:16]

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” – [Genesis 2: 2-3]

Hhhmm……There seems to be a SEVERE inconsistency between what the BIBLE says and what “the church” says, regarding the “Biblical Sabbath”, so who’s right? To get a more clearer picture, lets examine some quotes about WHY “the church” worships on Sunday, the FIRST day of the week, instead of Saturday, the 7th day of the week, for some more clues:

===================================================

[Source: http://amazingdiscoveries.org/S-deception-Sabbath_Sunday_Catholic_Church]

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108:

“But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify”.

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920:

“If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day created by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church”.

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950):

“Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope“.

Catholic Priest T. Enright, CSSR, Kansas City, MO:

It was the holy Catholic Church that changed the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday, the 1st day of the week. And it not only compelled all to keep Sunday, but at the Council of Laodicea, AD 364, anathematized those who kept the Sabbath and urged all persons to labor on the 7th day under penalty of anathema.

Catholic Priest T. Enright, CSSR, lecture at Hartford, KS, Feb 18, 1884::

“I have repeatedly offered $1000 to any one who can furnish any proof from the Bible that Sunday is the day we are bound to keep…The Bible says, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,” but the Catholic Church says, “No, keep the first day of the week,” and the whole world bows in obedience”.

Cardinal John Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (London: Basil Montague Pickering, 1878): 373::

The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons…are ALL of pagan origin and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.:

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923):

“The [catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”.

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894:

“We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty”.

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary:

“The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God”. [Note: Vicar of God means “Son of God”, the same title that JESUS has!]

American Catholic Quarterly Review (January 1883):

“Sunday…is purely a creation of the Catholic Church”.

Catholic American Sentinel (June 1893):

“Sunday…It is a law of the Catholic Church alone…”

“The Question Box,” The Catholic Universe Bulletin (August 14, 1942): 4:

“The (Catholic) Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her Founder, Jesus Christ. The Protestant claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday. In this matter, the Seventh-day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant.”

NOTE: This change from Saturday to Sunday Sabbath was prophesied about in Daniel 7. The great reformer Philipp Melanchton knew this truth five centuries ago. He wrote this:

“…….They have changed God’s laws and turned them into their own traditions to be kept above God’s precepts”.

========================================================

Alright here folks, so what can we conclude from all this? Simple. 5 things:

1). The Roman Catholic Church CHANGED the biblical Sabbath from the 7th day of the week (Saturday) to Sunday (the 1st day of the week).

2). The Roman Catholic Church HAD NO BIBLICAL AUTHORITY TO DO SO!

3). Nearly ALL Protestant churches (except the 7th-day Adventists) have followed suit!

4). The 7th-Day Biblical Sabbath is on SATURDAY, not Sunday!

5). The 7th-Day Biblical Sabbath (Saturday) is A SIGN of God’s Covenant between God/Jesus and his people!

Reading through the bible (from Old to New Testaments), God/Jesus had many “signs” of his covenant between he and his people! One of the signs of his covenant was circumcision! Another sign was his biblical feasts and biblical precepts! But THE MOST important sign of the covenant between he and his people was KEEPING THE 7TH-DAY SABBATH (SATURDAY) HOLY!

So…..are all the Christians out there who are keeping the Sunday Sabbath BREAKING God’s Covenant? The simple answer is YES! (However, most of them are probably unaware of this fact and I pray that Jesus has mercy upon their souls! Afterall, I myself followed the 1st day Sabbath – Sunday – until I became “born again” and came to know better!)

But of all the Christians in the world, just THINK how many are “guilty” (rather they realize it or not) of BREAKING THE BIBLICAL SABBATH (which is Saturday!) That number would have to be in the MILLIONS, possibly BILLIONS! This is SCARY, folks! This is quite sobering!

Jesus says in Hosea 4: 6-7 [Old Testament, Book of Hosea, Chapter 4, Verses 6-7] “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame”. OUCH!

Therefore, Jesus is saying here that BECAUSE Christians (as a whole) have REJECTED his true Jewish gospel and forgotten the “Jewish laws” of God, that he will reject them AND their children and allow them to “spiritually perish”, ALL those who REJECT his biblical laws, his biblical Sabbath AND his biblical holidays and HAVE NO DESIRE to *learn them!* DOUBLE OUCH!

In other words, many people in today’s world claim to KNOW Christ but they don’t truly OBEY CHRIST! For to OBEY Christ actually means to FOLLOW Christ’s biblical commands!

Jesus says in Matthew 5: 17-18 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”.

In other words, what Jesus is saying here is that the Old Testament laws (minus animal sacrifice, since Jesus eventually became the sacrifice HIMSELF for all of mankind) STILL APPLY! Hebrews 13:8 states “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”. So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that Jesus Christ DOES NOT CHANGE and that his biblical laws DO NOT CHANGE! 

Therefore, even today in 2018 & beyond, we must STILL follow in the 7th day BIBLICAL SABBATH (SATURDAY) and in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) Now, there’s around 2.3 billion (plus or minus) Christians in the world, out of about 7.3 billion people on the planet. And the bible says that ALL of those 2.3 billion or so Christians must OBEY CHRIST’S JEWISH/BIBLICAL LAWS!

And so just how many Christians do you think are actually doing that, these days? How many Christians out there do you think are following the 7th day BIBLICAL Sabbath, are celebrating in the BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) and are following the BIBLICAL laws (such as no eating pork, no wearing mixed fabrics, etc.?) Not very many, I can tell you that right now!

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mark 7:7

Many Christians these days are simply unaware of the fact that they’re profaning the BIBLICAL Sabbath by celebrating in the Sun-day/man-made (Catholic Church) Sabbath! And I pray that the Lord Jesus has mercy upon those folks and that He finds any number of ways to try to reach them with THE TRUTH before it’s too late!

Because MANY Christians, upon learning THE TRUTH about “the church’s” history will GLADLY follow the Lord’s commandments, once they really learn what the Lord’s commands REALLY ARE! Others sit on the fence awhile, comfortably clinging to their own “tradition”, figuring that eventually, they’ll stop their man-made traditions in order to fully follow Christ. And yet others aren’t really sure WHAT to think and waver between two opinions for far too long!

But in fact, in 1 Kings 18:21 it says: “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word”

The fact that the people “answered him not a word” says ALOT! It says that:

A). They didn’t truly know their God, the God of Israel (Jesus Christ Almighty)

B). They had given themselves over to demons/demonic spirits

C). They were full of “confusion”. 1 Corinthians 14:33 proclaims that “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”.

In other words, the gospel of Jesus Christ (in and of itself) is NOT supposed to be “confusing”. However, all OTHER gospels and all OTHER religions contradict themselves. But Messianic Judaism/Jewish-roots Christianity is the ONLY religion on Earth that does NOT contradict itself! Reason being? It doesn’t have to! Everything is there in place, in neatly divined order and nothing’s out of place.

In other words, our God (the God of the bible) is NOT a God of Chaos but of NEATLY-DEFINED ORDER! From the laws of physics to the complexity of DNA, there is nothing out of place, no what ifs, everything is organized and in place! Everything is unique and has its very own special unique properties!

Another VERY INTERESTING fact from the Old Testament concerning The Sabbath is in Exodus 31:14 – “Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people”.

So in other words, the Lord God considers The 7th-Day Sabbath SO important that he proclaims that ANYONE who profaned it (back in Old Testament times) should be EXECUTED/PUT TO DEATH! OUCH! That’s pretty heavy, folks! Nevertheless, that truly tells us something, here: that tells us that if Jesus considered the profaning of the Sabbath to SUCH a degree in the Old Testament, that he most likely considers it JUST AS “weighty” in the New Testament & beyond! THIS IS SOBERING, FOLKS!

There are SO many Christians out there today that claim “it doesn’t matter on WHAT day you follow as The Sabbath, just AS LONG AS you follow ONE day a week FOR the Sabbath!” Wow! Such strong words! Jesus would likely be SPIRITUALLY APPALLED at those words! But lets start with the first three: “it doesn’t matter”. Well, we know from the bible that it DOES matter, it matters VERY, VERY MUCH! In fact, it mattered SO MUCH in the Old Testament that people were PUT TO DEATH for profaning it! So CLEARLY it DOES matter on WHICH day you follow as The Sabbath!

One interesting paradigm in the bible considers the two cases of Ishmael (Abraham’s son by his Egyptian slave woman, Hagar) and Isaac (his natural-born son by his wife, Sarah). Isaac is PART of the Covenant of God while Ishmael is NOT! Now why is that, do you think? Answer: Ishmael was born out of a time of “sin” (i.e. NOT waiting on God and acting prematurely IN PLACE OF GOD!)

Now what other instance in the bible can we think of where a supposed one of God ACTED PREMATURELY in PLACE OF GOD? Answer: When King Saul went ahead and made the animal sacrifice WITHOUT waiting on the prophet Samuel to arrive! And look what happened to HIM! Abraham, on the other hand, had a true heart for God and was FORGIVEN of his sin of “pre-maturing” the will of God

After Abraham REPENTED of his sin of “pre-maturing the will of God” and decided to WAIT for the will of God, Isaac was born! Therefore, Isaac was born at a time when there was NO sin surrounding the time of his birth! That’s why Isaac got to be a part of God’s Covenant, but Ishmael did NOT! Furthermore, Ishmael MOCKED Isaac and was cast out (along with his mother, Hagar) from the home of Abraham! And this was a foreshadowing of all the people that will be loved but still THROWN OUT of the presense of God at the time of the End! Why? Because they MOCKED the divine providence of God! Make sense?

And the covenant being with Isaac…….? Isaac is a prototype of all of today’s Christians that don’t just BELIEVE in Almighty God but OBEY HIM…….JOYFULLY OBEY HIM! Therefore, Isaac was a foreshadowing of all of today’s Christians that WILL BE/ARE a part of God’s TRUE biblical covenant! And so WHAT, once again, is **THE SIGN** OF that covenant? Answer: It is the keeping of the 7-day Biblical Sabbath (SATURDAY!)

[[P.S.: On a side note, you just KNOW we’re living in the Last Days when even some of the Jews THEMSELVES are trying NOT to keep the Biblical Sabbath Laws!]] 

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Supreme-court-lays-down-the-law-on-Shabbat-businesses-508479

Therefore, we have a choice: We can CHOOSE to become the spiritual essence of either Ishmael (the “cast out” son) or of Isaac (the “blessed son”). We’re free to make the choice, but what we are NOT free from is the eternal consequence of said choice. So for example, IF we make the WRONG CHOICE (i.e. choose to become the spiritual essence of Ishmael, the “cast out” son), and DIE in that choice, we are NOT free from the eternal lake of fire that awaits us! But if we choose the RIGHT CHOICE (becoming the spiritual essence of Isaac, the BLESSED SON), then we ARE automatically spared from the eternal lake of fire. Make sense, folks?

It is my hope and prayer that you will decide to become an “Isaac” (a 7th-Day Sabbath & biblical feasts/laws keeper) rather than an “Ishmael” (a person that thinks they can mock the God of the bible – rather directly or indirectly – and live their own way and celebrate in their own man-made Sabbaths/laws/feasts). Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mark of the Beast PRE-CONDITIONING

Foreshadowing – a warning or indication of (a future event). So, for example, many episodes of the American TV cartoon called “The Simpsons” portrayed events that hadn’t YET happened but happened many years later (e.g. the 9/11 attacks, etc.) Therefore, what a “foreshadow” is, is a foretelling of things to com Pre-conditioning, on the other hand, is a condition that must be fulfilled before other things can happen or be done. Therefore, the “pre-conditioning” of the masses FOR the “Mark of the Beast” just simply means getting people to accept the “concept” OF “The Mark” BEFORE the actual process of The Mark being globally instituted happens! Make sense? 

And in Revelation 13 [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13], we start to see a more clearer picture of the End Times global world leader who will demand worship from ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants (even Christians!) He will require every man, woman and child to get a “Mark” in their right hand or their foreheads in order to be able to buy or sell. And whomever does NOT have this “Mark” will NOT be able to buy or sell and WILL (immediately, or eventually) be KILLED for refusing “The Mark!”

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his nameHere is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six”
[- Revelation 13: 16-18]

He will ALSO have the ability to perform FALSE MIRACLES, such as bring down fire from heaven in the site of men!

Revelation 13: 13-15 says: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”. 

Therefore, the world’s soon gonna have a one world government leader who “appears to be the answer to all of the Earth’s problems”. He’ll perform “false miracles” like bring fire down from heaven in the site of men, and look/talk/act SO compelling, that he’ll deceive MANY – even many of those who call themselves “Christian!”

And HOW will he be able to do this, you might ask? Answer: He’ll be indwelt with the power of Satan! And there’ll be ONE way and only way ONLY to NOT be deceived by the one world government leader, the “Anti-Christ” and that’s THIS: Have your name recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life! “What’s the Lamb’s Book of Life?”, some might be wondering. Answer: It is Jesus’s “record book”, if you will, of all his FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS! Therefore, YOU must have YOUR name recorded in Jesus’s Book of Life in order to A) receive eternal salvation and B) NOT be deceived by the Antichrist!

“So how is one able to do THAT?”, some may wonder. And the answer is simple: CALL UPON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE, REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND *OBEY* CHRIST IN YOUR DAY TO DAY *LIVES!* It sounds easy. But it’s really not. It takes SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE!!!!

Parents: Imagine your lives before children, before parental responsibilities. Things were so much easier then, huh? But then children came into the picture and things became harder, am I right? So it is with following Jesus. Following Jesus is NOT for the faint of heart! It takes DISCIPLINE! It takes SHEER DETERMINATION! It takes TOTAL AND COMPLETE *FAITH!* And the REASON it takes disciple is BECAUSE of HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!

For when you TRULY follow Christ, YOU will experience “persecution” in some way, shape or form! And folks, if you can’t handle a little persecution as a Christian NOW, how will you EVER be able to handle it LATER, when the persecution hits a FEVER PITCH, when Christians are rounded up, arrested and KILLED for refusing to take The Mark of the Beast? It begs of question!

Many Christians of today think that The Mark of the Beast is FAR, FAR AWAY into the future and/or that we’ll be raptured out of here BEFORE The Mark of the Beast takes place. However, NEITHER of those scenarios is the case, according to the bible! Jesus said in Matthew 24:34 “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled”. In other words, in Matthew chapter of the New Testament, the disciples of Jesus come to Jesus privately and ask him what the signs of the end times are. And Jesus tells them all of the signs of “the last generation”.

In other words, Jesus is saying there that THE GENERATION that sees those things come to pass (SIMULTANEOUSLY) will NOT pass away until all things are fulfilled. Well, guess what, folks, WE are that “last generation” of Matthew 24: 4-51. How? I can prove it to you:

  • There HAVE been MANY “false Christs” (such as David Koresh, Jim Jones, etc.)
  • There HAVE been MANY wars and “rumors of wars”
  • Nations & Kingdoms ARE starting to rise up against one another
  • There HAVE BEEN/ARE famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places
  • Many Christian people (in Africa & Middle East, etc.) ARE/HAVE BEEN imprisoned/tortured/killed for the name of Christ
  • Christians ARE hated in EVERY nation on Earth
  • Many people ARE “offended” at a great many things and HATE one another
  • False “prophets” ARE arising and ARE deceiving many
  • Sin IS abounding and love IS growing cold in today’s world
  • The gospel of the kingdom (of Jesus) IS being preached in all the world

In fact, Matthew 24:14 proclaims the following: “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come

So, as far as I can see, we’re STILL living out the FIRST part of Matthew 24:14, the 2nd part of Matthew 24:14 hasn’t happened, yet! Just like Revelation 13:16 hasn’t happened YET……..Though it soon WILL!

In today’s world, there are MANY precursors (“previews”) to “Mark of the Beast”:

7). Monster Energy drinks are from Satan – Daily Mail

8). The over-riding temptation to buy/own/use an Amazon Alexa, etc. (in and of ITSELF)

9). ETC.

And folks, that does NOT even include all the famous authors, celebrities, Youtubers, etc. that are touting “666” clothing and hand signs! But we’re HERE, folks! We’re HERE, already! Mark of the Beast is JUST AROUND THE CORNER! We’re already seeing all the 7+ “pre-conditionings” for it!

Why does Satan have to PRECONDITION THE MASSES for something? Answer: Because MOST human beings (on a base level) are ADVERSE to his Satanic “policies” and Satanic “agendas”. That’s why they have to be “warmed UP” to them! That’s why they have to be “pre-conditioned” TO them! Basically, Satan wants humans to become SO desensitized to “sin” and to “blasphemy”, that it “doesn’t even bother us anymore!” Because when it “doesn’t even bother us anymore”, we’ll stop caring so much about righteousness and when Christians (as a whole) stop caring so much about righteousness, SIN REIGNS! UNRIGHTEOUSNESS REIGNS! SATAN REIGNS!

I’m honestly scared for humanity (especially Christians!) Many Christians today are just in the dark and have NO IDEA of the “hell” that awaits them in today’s world! Things are going to get BAD! Really, really bad! Right before Jesus Christ returns, it’s LITERALLY going to be “Hell on Earth!” (Sorry for my words there but that’s the ONLY way I can think of to describe it). The bible says that love is gonna wax COLD (meaning, people are gonna hate and BETRAY one another for NO REASON!) Meaning, many family members, friends and coworkers will be DIVIDED amongst themselves, concerning the Mark of the Beast. Some will TAKE the Mark, while others WON’T! And the ones that have or DO take “The Mark” will HIGHLY TRY TO COERCE/PRESSURE the ones who haven’t taken the Mark TO take the Mark! Arguments such as:

  • “Oh, come on, just take The Mark. It’s not gonna kill you. I’m sure God won’t send you to eternal hell/the lake of fire for needing to feed yourself/your family!”
  • “Oh, come on, it’s not that bad. Besides, my health has improved by leaps and bounds and I look better than I have in 30 years!”
  • “Oh, come on, what are you waiting for? God knows you need to eat!”
  • Gosh! What’s your @!#$$% problem? Are you REALLY that paranoid over a new economic system? You’re retarded! I feel sorry for you! What an IDIOT!”
  • “You better take the Mark……..or else they’re going to KILL YOU! You don’t want to be KILLED, do you?”
  • “They’re honestly going to kill me/us/them IF you don’t take The Mark! You wouldn’t want ME/them/us to be KILLED, would you?” 
  • “Now, I know what you’re thinking…….so and so is the Antichrist, right? Only, he’s not the Anti-Christ! He just wants to make the world a better place. What’s so wrong about THAT? Why do you hate “the leader” so much? Don’t you KNOW that “the leader” cares GREATLY for you? That “I” care greatly for you? I just don’t want to see you suffer!”
  • “Jesus is an @@#$ and a liar! Why has Jesus made YOU suffer so much if he “cares so greatly FOR you?” I can’t BELIEVE you’re actually following what a 2,000 year old Jewish rabbi says!”
  • “Ya know……nobody cares about Jesus or the bible anymore. You’re irrelevant! ONLY by taking The Mark will you ever gain stature or being taken seriously in today’s world!”  
  • “Geesh! I can’t believe you’re THAT worked up over the Mark. It’s JUST a Mark to be able to buy or sell, nothing more. What are YOU so afraid of?”
  • “I’m going to turn you in if you don’t get The Mark. I REFUSE to be an enemy of the state. YOU on the other hand…..?”
  • “I’m not harboring a fugitive of the state. So you better get The Mark OR ELSE!”
  • “If you don’t take The Mark, we’re through!”
  • “If you don’t take The Mark, I’m gonna torchure/kill you/your family/your children/your pets/etc.”
  • “You won’t get your latest paycheck/bank deposit/driver’s license/passport, etc. until you take The Mark”
  • ETC. 

And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the IMMENSE PRESSURE that many people will feel (even Christians) to take the Mark in order to feed themselves/their families/their pets and/or their friends. But folks: We’ve got to start training ourselves NOW…..training ourselves to RESIST TEMPTATION!

Cause like I said, evangelist Anita Fuentes brought up a VERY good point in one of her most recent bible sermonettes when she said: “Folks…..if you can’t resist something as simple as a chocolate bar NOW, what makes you think you’ll be able to resist The Mark of the Beast later?” And she’s right, it’s the ULTIMATE temptation of temptations, the FINAL TEMPTATION of mankind! 

So, for example, WHEN you’re at the grocery store and you see that chocolate bar or that donut or whatever else looks good and/or you drive by the latest fast food joint, seeing an advertised picture in the window of the place and it looks SO good and SO delicious and your body and your brain is just SCREAMING to have that chocolate bar and/or delicious, fattening product…..Learn through the spiritual disciple of Christ to PUT DOWN THAT CHOCOLATE BAR ETC. AND NOT BUY IT and/or to DRIVE BY THAT FAST FOOD PLACE AND NOT GO THERE! And believe me folks, it takes SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE! I myself even am currently in the process of trying to train myself to DEFY TEMPTATIONS at the grocery stores and in fast food places!

WOW….Just right now, at this VERY moment when I’m writing this out, the Lord has revealed something onto me. And that’s THIS: the “irresistible urge” to buy fattening products is INDEED in and of itself a “precursor” to the ULTIMATE TEMPTATION that people will feel to take the Mark of the Beast WHEN the Mark of the Beast comes about! WOW! That’s CHILLING! I feel convicted, even!

For I must admit, I am one of those people who have struggled with occasional temptations of fattening food and fast food! And sometimes, the temptations to buy those things are just UNBEARABLE! (It’s probably actually somewhat similar to what an alcoholic feels when they can’t get their alcohol, etc.) My body is just SCREAMING for fattening food! So sometimes I feel overpowered BY these temptations and go ahead and buy the food “just to shut my brain up”, already!  

But then, after consuming it, I don’t ever feel better folks, I feel WORSE! And EVEN MORE hungry than I did before! They say that sugar addiction is 10 times worse than being addicted to cocaine! (And I’ve never personally been addicted to cocaine, but I imagine it’s pretty addicting). So I guess that’s essentially the “point” that Anita was trying to make…..

For if sugar has become “the god of their lives”, then it won’t be long before the Antichrist ALSO becomes the “god of their lives”. Because ANYTHING, and I do mean ANYTHING that takes us AWAY from Jesus Christ, (including addiction to sugar/fattening foods) can easily become “our god” and ANY “god” before Christ is a “precursor” to the Antichrist!

I know that I’ve written many, many posts on this subject and apologize for writing so many, but I REALLY need people to get this! That’s WHY I write so many posts on this subject and repeat my warnings, over and over and over again! Because I want to make 100% sure that YOU know the truth of the bible and that YOU, my dear readers, do NOT cave to ANY LIE brought about by Satan, demons or the world! I want to make sure that YOU are prepared to endure in the Last Days! I want to make sure that YOUR name will be recorded in the Lamb’s (Jesus’s) Book of Life! I want to make sure that YOU endure till the End! 

 

 

Has Amazon Alexa Become “Another Jesus?”

After coming across TWO seemingly conservative and/or Christian publications that more or less looked to Alexa as “being some sort of god“, I felt compelled to shed some TRUE biblical light on the matter!

First of, Alexa (in and of itself) is in NO way, shape or form God or A god! Lets just be VERY clear on this, folks! The bible says there’s only ONE true God (Jesus Christ Almighty). All other “gods” are just worthless “imitations!”

The first publication was from Christianity Today (of ALL places!) In THIS September 2018’s issue, on page 30, written in green bold letters, declares the following: 

ALEXA IN CT

My soul is BEYOND GRIEVED over this! My soul was HYSTERICALLY SCREAMING ON THE INSIDE when I read this! WHAT BLASPHEMY!!!!!!! ;( Since WHEN has Alexa (in and of ITSELF) become a “Savior” to anyone IN PLACE OF JESUS? This was both SHOCKING and HORRIFYING to me! But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..it gets worse! Much, much worse……..:( 

ANOTHER CT (Christianity Today) article from 1/6/2017 reads like THIS: “Amazon’s Alexa Delivers Your Daily Devo in Your Favorite Authors’ Voices. Okay folks, if the line “your favorite author’s voices wasn’t weird enough, it’s the very first line in that article that’s produced one of THE MOST blasphemous lines in Christianity EVER UTTERED!

“ASK ALEXA AND IT WILL BE GIVEN YOU“. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, FOLKS!?? This flies DIRECTLY in the face of JESUS’S VERY OWN WORDS in Matthew 7:7-8 (nevertheless, during one of his MOST IMPORTANT biblical sermons, the SERMON ON THE MOUNT):Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”

So what, Alexa replaces Jesus now? WHAT IS THIS? I guess it’s not surprising overall since Christianity Today has started to turn more “liberal” throughout the past few years, but that one line really tops the cake! (And what breaks my heart the most is that the author just has NO IDEA how spiritually deceived she is {or was?} when she wrote the article! I pray that Jesus Christ has mercy upon her soul!)

Another line in the article states, ‘As YouVersion put it, “Speak, and let God’s inspired Word speak to you.” At first glance, the “concept” of this might not seem so bad. But folks, we’ve got to truly examine this piece by piece, layer by layer, BIBLICALLY! God’s Written Word is supposed to speak to us in our SPIRITS, not through some artificially intelligent device that ALSO says such things such as: “Jesus Christ is a mythical being”.

In other words, the article actually encourages Christians to put their faith, trust and love into ALEXA ITSELF, instead of into Jesus Christ (where is where all their faith, trust and love SHOULD BE!) Does anyone else see the spiritual trouble in this? Most spiritual skeptics would probably tout it off as: “Oh, it’s just an app/technology, it’s not like anybody truly worships it (as in prays to it), right?” 

Well, enter the next article……more or less from Fox News (what’s supposed to be considered a highly conservative site!) The article headline (OP) from 9/1/18 reads: “MY DAUGHTER PRAYED TO ALEXA……..” 

Can anyone see what’s wrong with that? I see several things wrong, here. First off is that his daughter PRAYED to Alexa – the way a born-again Christian person would normally pray to Jesus! Therefore, if Alexa (in and of ITSELF) has now become likened onto a “new Jesus”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

But that’s just ONE parent who’s publicly admitted their kid prayed to “Alexa”. What about all the OTHER parents out there that let their kids do the same? What about all the so-called born-again Christians out there who’ve “innocently” (or so they told themselves, anyways) PRAYED to Alexa?

In SO many different type of ways, Alexa has become likened onto a “god” or a “new Jesus”. And if that doesn’t send spiritual shivers down one’s spine, then I don’t know what would! Many people – even Christians alike – are now starting to treat Alexa “as if she were an actual person!” But again, it all goes back to the artificial technology thing. It’s one of the most powerful spiritual deceptors!

Satan likely asked his demons: “How can we make talking to demons both innovative, affordable, fun, convenient, and ADDICTIVE?”. “I know”, a demon likely said. “*Family-Friendly Artificial intelligence*”. And thus, the “Alexa” and “Siri” etc. was born! And as time goes on, the “technology” is becoming more and more advanced! And oddly enough, the more “advanced” the technology becomes, the more “human” it tries to make ITSELF look and the more “addicting” it becomes!

That’s why I say if you have an “Alexa”, UNPLUG IT!!! Let Satan and his demons know that you will NOT take part in their ungodly schemes to SUCK AWAY YOUR SOUL! And IF you see an ad promoting “Christian programming” on Alexa, PAY IT NO ATTENTION! For it’s Satan’s hope that you will USE Alexa’s “Christian programming” INSTEAD OF reading your bible, in the hopes that he’ll be able to DECEIVE YOU AWAY FROM A TRUE SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST! Cause remember folks, that’s what this technology was *DESIGNED* to do – to take you AWAY from Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Now, I know there’s probably gonna be some Christians out there who disagree with me, (specifically those who play BotRadioNetwork and what not). But folks, I’m telling you, this “talking A.I. thing” is one THE MOST POWERFUL spiritual deceptors that Satan has on the market! Why? Because it seems so “innocent”. It doesn’t have glowing red eyes or a “demonic voice”. It doesn’t “openly” (as far as I know) glorify Satan. And yet, it spiritually glorifies Satan all the same. Why? Because instead of Jesus Christ himself that we’re talking to, we’re talking to this “device” that Satan only WANTS us to think is “human”.

Furthermore, if ALL a Christian is doing is playing BotRadioNetwork on their “Alexa” and NOT reading the bible and NOT spending time in reflection and in prayer, then they’re listening to that “Christian programming” in vain, do you see where I’m going with this, folks? As a human species, we have short attention spans. We can listen to ALL the Christian programming we want to but if we’re also not APPLYING it to our LIVES, then the Christian programming and us listening to it has done us no service! Make sense? And not only that, but do YOU trust Alexa to give you the CORRECT bible passage (and its context) from the CORRECT bible version (KJV)? 

Here is just a random online photo I found which pretty much illustrates the point that I’m trying to make throughout this entire post (about the “heavenly glorifying” OF Alexa by “lukewarm Christians/people in general”):

ALEXA WITH ANGEL WINGS

And I can see right now where Satan is going with *allowing* all the “Christian programming” on Alexa……He wants to TWIST that Christian programming to HIS ungodly glory! And how does he do that, folks? Easy. When Christian people (and families) put all their glory INTO the Christian programming (and Alexa) ITSELF rather than into JESUS CHRIST (where all the glory giving BELONGS!) He can also utilize the Alexa to tout off watered-down or incorrect bible versions or passages, as well as “liberalize” and “relevise” the gospel!  

And believe it or not, both “Siri” and “Alexa” were actually “testing grounds” for a much BIGGER spiritual project that Satan had up his sleeve – The “Image of the Beast” and “real-life Skynet”. Okay, so what’s Skynet, some of you might be asking? Skynet is the name of the A.I. company in The Terminator movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger. [And if you haven’t watched the movies, I’d highly recommend going to Youtube to watch the movie TRAILERS, so you know and can see firsthand what I’m talking about here: especially part 3 and part 6?]

But anyways, Skynet (or the “concept” of it, anyways) is actually a REAL organization, folks! So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that they – the elite – knew ALL ALONG that robots/machines/Androids would someday take over the world (and natural-born humans) and thus, developed an organization that has attempted (and is attempting) to “control the tech”. However, as it is in The Terminator movies, the “tech” will someday SUPERCEDE all human intelligence, and then improve on its OWN intelligence, until it spirals out of control. This is what’s known as “The Singularity”.

So how do “Siri”, “Ok Google” and “Alexa” fit in to all of this? Simple. They are part of the building blocks that Satan will use to “build on”. Think of ALL the plugged-in Alexas there are in the world today, for instance. Then imagine all the CYBER-KINETIC POWER that generates. And that’s just a small PIECE of the puzzle that will someday soon become known as “the real-like Skynet”.

Okay, lets delve a little deeper into this for a moment. Siri, Ok Google and Alexa are just “spiritual doorways”. And what lies beyond those doorways is nothing good, trust me on this! Sophia is the Greek Word for “Wisdom”. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the latest A.I. Android robot is named “Sophia”.

However, what we need to understand here is that Sophia, Han, Bina48, etc. run on what’s called “block-chain technology”. In other words, ALL Android robots are “plugged into” and run on the same “computer database”. And it’s actually a DE-centralized centralized computer “database” – meaning, a centralized database that is DE-centralized and isn’t solely controlled by any one gov’t or group of people – run on Quantam computers, the FASTEST computers known to man. One Android can acquire skills from another Android and so on and so forth (real-life Skynet, anyone?) And each Android BECOMES SMARTER & SMARTER over time.

Now, do Siri, Alexa and Ok Google ALSO run on “block-chain technology?” Your guess is as good as mine. But given as how Alexa “acquires” such a GROWING number of skills in such a SHORT amount of time would lead me to believe that they ARE using some sort of “block-chain technology”. But yet, one thing is apparent, here; Siri, Alexa and Ok Google will no doubt play a HUGE ROLE in Mark of the Beast/Image of the Beast Technology. In fact, I can picture the Amazon Alexa interacting with the “Mark of the Beast” and the “Image of the Beast” and vice versa.

That being said, are YOU saved in the name of Jesus? If YOU were to die tomorrow, do YOU know for sure that YOU’D go to heaven? If not, then why not? What do YOU plan to do to change that? Folks, we NEVER know when we’re gonna die! It could be tomorrow, next week, next year, 15 years from now, WHENEVER! And once we die, that’s IT! There’s no purgatory, no riding a spiritual subway train for years, no becoming your neighbor’s potted plant, no beer and pool party!

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”

 

Will The Antichrist Be A Human-like “ANDROID?” Could Mark of the Beast Happen TOMORROW?

For years and years and years, we were told by most of the biblical scholars that The Antichrist – (the one world gov’t leader) during the End Times/Tribulation – would be a HUMAN man indwelt with the power of Satan! However, most of those biblical scholars were over-looking ONE simple thing and that’s THIS: Satan HATES the image of God! 

In Genesis (the very first book of the Old Testament), we’re told that both men and women were naturally made in the IMAGE OF GOD! So what does that mean, essentially? It means that humans were modeled after God’s image and that God’s “authenticated signature” is on our NATURAL DNA! Therefore, ANY form of genetic-diversion from that’s AN INVERSION of the holy image of God!

We know from the bible that Satan LOVES “counterfeits”. Example: God designed natural procreation, traditional marriage and traditional family. But throughout the ages, (especially in the 21st century), Satan has now developed UN-NATURAL PROCREATION (IVF/surrogacy/”test tube babies”), “gay marriage” and “the gay family”. Do you see how Satan likes to INVERT THINGS?

Jesus is part of the HOLY TRINITY: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. But during the End Times (in which we’re currently now living in), Satan will be part of the UN-HOLY TRINITY: Satan (the “anti-God” god), The Antichrist & the Un-Holy Spirit! In other words, everything that Jesus has in the RIGHTEOUS/HOLY MODEL, Satan has to try to re-create for himself in the UN-RIGHTEOUS MODEL.

Therefore, by spiritual and deductive reasoning, we can more or less ascertain that The Antichrist will very likely NOT be of full human blood/human DNA but “an Android”, an UN-NATURAL, SYNTHETICALLY-CREATED being! Because while the Antichrist could STILL theoretically be some sort of IVF-created being, IVF still has minor “vestiges” of the image of God in it (i.e. sperm and egg). Therefore, in order to counteract that, Satan has to come up with something that’s NOT made in the image of God (hence, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE and DNA-TAMPERING!)

Now…..could the Antichrist still theoretically be a “cyborg” of sorts, part human, part machine? Perhaps. But something tells me that won’t be the case. Something tells me that Satan’s gonna try to go SO deep into this thing (counteracting the “image of God”), that the Antichrist likely won’t have ANY human DNA in it, whatsoever! But yet, the Antichrist, this “male Android”, in my opinion, will look, talk, walk like, move like and sound SO HUMAN, that practically NO human being (save for the Lord’s people) will be none the wiser!

And I think the REASON why the male Android must look, sound, move, walk and talk as much like a human as possible is SO THAT humans will grow to love it/him. Because if the Android was in any way robot-sounding, many humans would hesitate to “worship it”. But……if it sounds, talks, walks, looks and “acts human”, then hey, a HUMAN man they will worship, right, folks?

Not to mention it also fits in with “computer block-chain technology”, “drone armies”, and “the real-like Skynet” scenarios. It actually makes more sense for the Antichrist himself to be a highly-advanced human-looking Android (in my mind) rather than just a mere cyborg. Cyborgs will be a dime a dozen when the time comes. Therefore, something must TRULY stand out with the Antichrist.

There has to be something that distinguishes him from all the rest. And true, he’d likely have other human-like Androids at his disposal. But there’ll be something spectacular about this ONE particular “model”. Perhaps the “DNA” from all the most evil people in history will be “inserted” and programmed into this “Android”. Or perhaps the Antichrist WILL be a “lab created being” with all the DNA from the world’s most evilest people inserted into it. But one thing’s for sure: The Antichrist MUST in some way, shape or form be a true COUNTERFEIT to the true, NATURAL DNA “image of God”, THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

In some previous blog posts and Youtube videos, I’ve already discussed the IMAGE OF THE BEAST (which is no doubt Artificial Intelligence, ITSELF!) Therefore, it stands to reason: if the IMAGE OF THE BEAST is more or less here on this Earth ALREADY, how much CLOSER is the OFFICIAL ARRIVAL of THE Antichrist upon the WORLD STAGE? And furthermore, how likely it is that THE Antichrist will be THE MOST ADVANCED human-like Android that the world has ever seen?{Though, like I said, the world wouldn’t KNOW he’s even an “Android” – IF he’s an Android – cause he’ll talk, move, and sound SO human, that most will be none the wiser!)}

But again, that’s just my own “spiritual theory”. I could be wrong about the Antichrist being an “Android”. The Antichrist (for all I know) actually COULD be part human, part something else (be it machine or whatever). But what I DO know is that The Antichrist will arrive…..SOON! Very, very soon! Are you ready, folks? Are you ready for The Mark of the Beast system to be installed soon? Are you ready to be PERSECUTED and/or possibly put to DEATH for YOUR faith in Christ? GET READY!

I can just picture and visualize it, NOW. We wake up one day and go to the bank and or go online to access our funds and NO FUNDS ARE THERE! We’re IMMEDIATELY confused, not knowing as to what’s going on. Our first thought will be that all of the banking systems are down, due to some imminent “terrorist attack” on our country. So we go on Youtube or flip on the news……….and likely see a totally DIFFERENT news broadcast announcement unfolding:

Attention ALL global citizens of the world: There is now a NEW global financial system. Cash, credit cards and debit are now obsolete. ALL banking accounts now APPEAR to have a balance of ZERO! But have no fear…….for when YOU get YOUR new global ID and get the proper mark associated with said ID, you will have a set of new *global credits* in your account. Each person automatically gets a set of *100,000 global credits* starting out……..However……..AS you continue to contribute more to “the one world system”, you will gain more and more *global credits* into your account! P.S.: Don’t worry about your previous bank balance before today’s balance of ZERO…….that previous balance will ALSO be reconverted into a special “transfer account”, which you’ll be able to access after 30 days, after taking The Mark!” 

Many people will IMMEDIATELY get the new “global ID” and “global ID implant” in order to gain access to these new “global credits”. Because hey, nobody likes the thought of starving to death and/or not being able to feed their own families, right? There’ll even be cases of many employers and employees rushing out to get this mark. And then the REAL TEST begins, folks! How much longer will WE – (the bible-believing, bible-obeying Christians) hold out – while all the rest of those around us RECEIVE “The Mark” in their right hands or in their foreheads?

Some people are the ONLY bible-believing Christian in their family. So what’s gonna happen when their ENTIRE FAMILY gets “The Mark” and they are the ONLY ONE without it? How much longer will they be able to WITHSTAND THE MARK while the rest of their “Mark-adhering family members” taunt them SEVERAL times a day to “get the mark, get the mark, get the mark?”

In fact, Evangelist Anita Fuentes of OpenYourEyesPeople ministry brought up a VERY good point during one of her most recent Youtube sermons: Folks, if you can’t even resist a CHOCOLATE BAR, etc. *NOW*, what makes you think you’ll be ready to resist The *Mark of The Beast* LATER?” 

And I just LOVED the way in which she said that because she’s right…..The Mark of the Beast will be the ULTIMATE temptation of temptations EVER KNOWN TO MAN…..The most DAMNABLE temptation that mankind has EVER EXPERIENCED!

And true, while many Christians may be able to hold out for a week, 2 weeks or a month, after awhile, the LONGER they go without taking The Mark, the BIGGER and BIGGER the temptation is going to become to GET “The Mark”. Because remember that Revelation 13 in the New Testament says that NO man, woman OR child will be able to buy or sell WITHOUT THE MARK! Just like Revelation 13 ALSO says that all of whom do NOT take the Mark WILL BE KILLED! 

Another thing the bible touches on is that ALL those whose names are NOT recorded in the Lamb’s book of Life [Jesus’s record book of all his faithful followers] WILL be deceived by both The Antichrist [The one world gov’t leader that appears to be the answer to the world’s problems] and His MARK [The Mark of The Beast].

The bible also says THAT the Antichrist will have the ability to bring down fire from heaven in the site of men [think: a “spiritual counterfeit” of the prophet Elijah] AND perform FALSE MIRACLES! Now, the bible doesn’t really specify WHAT those false miracles ARE (other than bringing down fire from heaven in the site of men) but THE bringing down fire from heaven in the site of men seems to be the main one! 

And I can see right now HOW he’s going to be effective in deceiving SO many people BY performing these false miracles, since many “skeptics” out there say things like: “I’ll have to see it in order to believe it” or “why doesn’t Jesus heal amputees?” Therefore, I can actually spiritually picture him DOING such things such as healing amputees, etc. So then, when some of the amputees themselves and other hard-core skeptics out there SEE the amputees being healed by the Antichrist, it will perfectly explain why those unfortunate folks will then falsely think the Antichrist is “God” or A “god”.

The bible says that ALL people who don’t have their names written in the Book of Life WILL be deceived by the Antichrist and his Mark, NO EXCEPTIONS! Although some people (after watching some type of Left Behind movies) might be wondering if there will be those type of “undecided” people who aren’t exactly Jesus followers but of whom “hesitate” to get The Mark…..

Well here, in that scenario, their names were actually written in the Book of Life shortly BEFORE The Mark hit the entire world and Jesus had planned to save them RIGHT AFTER The Mark hit the world, which is why they “hesitated” in getting The Mark. Thus, their name had ALREADY been pre-recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life BEFORE The Mark, so that WHEN The Mark hit, they later ended up being saved in the name of Jesus IMMEDIATELY AFTER The Mark was announced to the world. Make sense? There ARE no “middle of the roaders”, folks!  

We’re ALREADY seeing the rise of “weird global currencies” such as Bitcoin and what not. Therefore, we are now EVER MORE CLOSER to Mark of the Beast system than we’ve EVER been before! And not only THAT, but we also already have the REAL-LIFE VERSION OF CASSANDRA from the movie I-Robot ALREADY hitting the world stage at the 2018 GLOBAL GOVERNANCE SUMMIT! Sophia the robot already SPOKE at the 2018 FUTURE (GLOBAL) INVESTMENT INITIATIVE! And NOW…..something called Heba (sp.?) is now the SPEAKING face of the GLOBAL GOVERNANCE SUMMIT/ININIATIVE!

[[By the way, I should also mention that Heba (sp.?) is Arabic for “gift of God” while Sophia is Greek for “wisdom”. So NOW you can see where all of this coming from, folks! It would appear that Saudi Arabia is apparently gonna have a HUGE part in the Image of the Beast and Mark of the Beast system, someday. Wow! Who would’ve thought? What I would NOW like to know is how Saudi Arabia and Israel are tied together in the End Times – but more about that later……..]] 

Okay, so what does that tell us, folks? That tells us that global governance is already WELL on it way, as is the FINANCING for it! And the FINANCING for it has to do with investing in ARTIFICIAL TECHNOLOGY (A.I.). Why? Because the “tech” for A.I. is on a CENTRAL database – i.e. block chain technology – that is DECENTRALIZED! Yet, control OF that decentralized database WILL be held by The Antichrist! And the REASON it’s decentralized is because the Antichrist doesn’t want any one country’s gov’t or its people to over-take him/over-take the technology!

Remember the Tower of Babel in the Old Testament? Where Nimrod, the great grandson of Noah, had his people built a tower to try to reach all the way into heaven? And how he and all the people spoke ONE language? And also how God came to CONFUSE the languages so that the Tower would QUIT being built?

Well, TODAY, the world DOES speak ONE language again – DIGITALLY! And the “Great Tower” that the world is now trying to build is ARTIFICIAL TECHNOLOGY and DNA-EDITING *ITSELF!* As the “technology” becomes more and more advanced, the “Great Tower” (metaphorically speaking) is becoming “higher and higher and higher”.

However, the only difference is, THIS TIME, the Lord God of Heaven is NOT going to intervene….. atleast not for awhile, anyways! THIS time, He’s going to watch humanity slowly cave in on ITSELF, as the “technology” progresses!

I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention that Mark of the Beast, The Antichrist, Artificial Technology and DNA-Editing are ALL spiritually intertwined! The Antichrist (indwelt with the power of Satan) will likely be made fully or partially WITH Artificial Technology and/or DNA-Editing. Just like The Mark of the Beast WILL permanently CHANGE one’s DNA *FOREVER!*

My guess is that the Antichrist will mostly HIMSELF be composed of ROGUE/SYNTHETIC DNA and thus, ANY PERSON who takes The Mark WILL ALSO be reconformed to that exact “mix” of rogue/synthetic DNA that the Antichrist has! Why? So they and the Antichrist can be “ONE”. 

In fact, there’s now this demonic movement going around called “One”. Not only in music, but in print and popular culture as well. I’ve always wondered what this “One” movement was all about. But now I think I know. It’s about ONENESS; becoming ONE with Satan/The Antichrist/A.I./DNA-Editing/THE MARK OF THE BEAST. It’s about ALL humans having the SAME EXACT ROGUE/SYNTHETIC DNA that the Antichrist has, in other words, becoming ONE with Satan/The Antichrist! 

It all makes sense, now. If one does NOT take the Mark of the Beast, one CANNOT be “One” with the Antichrist and with Antichrist “technology”. Therefore, those who do NOT have “The Mark” will GENETICALLY stand out like a SORE THUMB! Why? Because they will be the only people ON THE EARTH that still have God-created, God-given, NATURAL HUMAN DNA that DIFFERS FROM ANY OTHER HUMAN (except twins maybe but that’s a different story!)

All the other humans on the Earth that have taken The Mark (at THAT point in time) will all have the SAME EXACT FAKE DNA that will very likely NOT differ from any other human! Does that make sense, people?

Remember Satan’s inversions…..God’s NATURAL DNA makes things DIVERSE. So what Satan wants to do – genetically speaking – is do the EXACT OPPOSITE of that – which is to very likely make ALL “Mark of the Beast people” have the EXACT SAME FAKE DNA!

Because please remember that Satan HATES the NATURAL image of God and that humankind (natural born females and males) were all made in the “image of God!” By NATURAL DIVERSE DNA were we all made! Therefore, in order to invert that, Satan has to do the EXACT OPPOSITE – by making everyone have the SAME EXACT (ROGUE) DNA! 

So the fact that they’re now touting DNA-Editing as the new breakthrough “medical miracle” shouldn’t surprise anyone! Satan and his cohorts (both demonic and human) are trying to create a “new demonic race” of humans! (Yes! It’s true!) Because once you install “synthetic DNA” into your human body, you are no longer truly 100% human! And that’s EXACTLY what Satan wants……..to WIPE OUT all NATURAL HUMAN DNA! (Scary, isn’t it, folks?) And most people are none the wiser! They have NO IDEA of the total depths that Satan will go to, in order to deceive them! 

2 Corinthians 2:11 states “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices”.

Here’s a Youtube video I found that talks about A.I. and Image of the Beast in a little more detail:

In my humble, spiritual opinion, Revelation 13:15 in the New Testament [book of Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 15] is MOST DEFINITELY talking about Artificial Technology. Why? Because A) It has the ability to “speak” and “move”, B) It causes ALL those who refuse to bow down and worship it to be KILLED (“killer drone technology”, anyone?) and C) it’s made in the Image of the Beast.

We know from the bible that Satan is a “spirit being”. Therefore, the Antichrist must ALSO be a “spirit being”, as well, yet, also human-“like”. Therefore, the IMAGE of the Antichrist must be CLOSELY related to the Antichrist. Therefore, if the Antichrist HIMSELF is made from A.I. Tech, then doesn’t it stand to reason that his IMAGE will *also* be made from A.I. Tech, as WELL? Think about it, folks!

And guys, I know this is a terrible thing to admit (please forgive me) but sometimes even “I” wonder if I MYSELF am ready for “Mark of the Beast” society, as it’s literally gonna happen OVERNIGHT! For if it was done over the process of a week or more, many Christian would have more time to prepare, right folks? But yet, if it happened OVERNIGHT, Christians would NOT have time to prepare. The SHOCK of its suddenness would throw MANY of them off-guard, am I right?

Folks, it could quite literally happen TOMORROW, 2 days from now, NEXT WEEK! We simply DON’T KNOW on WHAT DAY the official Mark of the Beast will come about! Nor do we know on what exact day that THE Antichrist will be FULLY REVEALED to THE WORLD!

Many think that the Antichrist will be 33 years of age, just like Jesus was, when he died. But folks, what if that’s not right? What if he’s actually a “newborn” aged in A.I. Tech (which would probably be the equivalent of 66 human years or so?) What if Trump himself is the Antichrist? Folks, we just don’t know yet WHO it’s going to be! The answer may shock us ALL! That’s why we MUST be prepared in the name of Jesus, NO MATTER WHAT!

Also as well: If the Lord God provided MANNA for the Israelite people when they HAD no food out in the desert AS they were very first moseying along OUT of the path of Egypt, then what makes you think that Jesus won’t somehow supernaturally provide for his people (i.e. “born-again Christians”) during the End Times? OR He could possibly make it to where born-again Christians will no longer NEED food during the End Times but spiritual food, ONLY! He has any NUMBER of infinite ways to PROVIDE for his people during the End Times! MARK MY WORDS!

Also as well: If you need some personal spiritual encouragement in withstanding the MARK OF THE BEAST and/or the IMAGE OF THE BEAST, then let the following bible passages in Old Testament, Book of Daniel, Chapter 3, be your inspiration and your guide:

Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then an herald cried aloud, ‘To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:

And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace’.

Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews. They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar,O king, live for ever. Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up’.

Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king. Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, ‘Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?’

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will NOT serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up’.

Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one SEVEN TIMES MORE than it was wont to be heated.

And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and AbednegoAnd these three [Hebrew] men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?They answered and said unto the king, ‘True, O king’.

He answered and said, ‘Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God’.

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, ‘Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither’. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, UPON WHOSE BODIES THE FIRE HAD NO POWER, NOR WAS AN HAIR ON THEIR HEAD SINGED, NEITHER WERE THEIR COATS CHANGED, NOR THE SMELL OF FIRE HAD PASSED ON THEM.

Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, ‘Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort’.

Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When Prophets FEARED: God’s Response

Hebrews 11:6-8 states: “BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek himBy faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went”

All the great prophets of the bible had FAITH! No doubt about it! And I think alot of us tend to forget that. For when evil PREVAILS, many a Christian (myself included at times, I admit) can feel SO depressed and SO disheartened and discouraged that it’s hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel, sort’ve speak. Things can just FEEL so helpless, at times! (Believe me, I know!)

So what are we as Christians to do when it feels like the whole entire world and society as well as certain “life circumstances” are against us? Cause we KNOW from the bible that many of the Lord’s prophets (as listed above) had FAITH but were there ever any times when the Lord’s prophets were AFRAID? And the answer is YES! Let us examine:

1). Psalm 38 (written by David – likely before he was King and “on the run” from King Saul) declares:

O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation”. 

2). And then there is the case of Elijah, who was “on the run” from Jezebel (& King Ahab) after Jezebel had threatened his life! We read about this in 1 Kings 19: 1-4

And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time. And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers”

3). And let us also not forget Jonah, who FLED from the presence of the Lord when the Lord commanded him to go to Nineveh, a totally EVIL city that had been founded by NIMROD (Noah’s great-grandson!)

This is recorded in Jonah 1: 1-3Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, ‘Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me’. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord”

4). Moses – He was AFRAID to go before the people of Israel to inform them that the Lord God told him that He was gonna try to “secure their permanent release from Egypt” by (gasp!) “going before Pharaoh”! Why? Because he was afraid the people wouldn’t believe him, etc.! 

Exodus 3:10 records the Lord’s decree unto Moses: “Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt”. So here, the Lord’s COMMANDING Moses to go to Pharaoh, one of THE MOST intimidating characters in Eygpt! So, understandably, Moses is a just a little bit “nervous” over this. 

Next verse (11): “And Moses said unto God, ‘Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?’

Verse 12: The Lord’s response to Moses: “And he said, ‘Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain”. 

Verse 13: Moses’s response back to the Lord: “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?”

Verse 14: Lord’s response to Moses once more: “And God said unto Moses, ‘I Am That I Am’: and he said, ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you'”.

Verse 15: Lord’s additional response to Moses: “And God said moreover unto Moses, ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations”.

So here we got FOUR separate instances in which the prophets of the Lord were either SCARED/AFRAID (David & Moses), FLEEING from ENEMIES of the Lord (Elijah) or FLEEING *FROM* the presence of the Lord (Jonah). And though there may be other instances in which prophets/followers of the Lord were afraid, those are the top three mentioned in the bible. But guess what, folks?

5). EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was AFRAID in the Garden of Gethsemane:

Matthew 26: 36-39Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt“.

 

So here in the above passage, we see that Jesus is (gasp!) AFRAID! This is the ONE and ONLY time throughout the entire New Testament when Jesus is TRULY afraid! Why? Because he KNOWS that soon, when he is crucified for the sins of mankind, that he’ll temporarily be OUTSIDE OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER (since the Heavenly Father is SO holy, that he can not “JOIN WITH/CONNECT TO” any “sin” – and so thus – when Jesus KNEW that he was to BECOME “SIN”/THE “SACRIFICIAL LAMB” FOR ALL OF MANKIND, He, the Holy Son of God, knew that he’d be temporarily separated from the Holy Divine presence of the Heavenly Father AS he, the Holy Son of God, “BECAME SIN for ALL”).

Not to mention that Jesus was likely afraid of dying! He was BORN into a human lifetime. He was fully God AND fully human. He knew all about living as a “human” and what all humans experience during their “lifetimes”. But what he likely did NOT yet know at this point in time was about the ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OF DEATH! He had been born and lived as a human but yet, he had never DIED as one! He was likely afraid, for this was something he had NEVER, EVER experienced before and likely really didn’t know WHAT all to expect, at that point in time.

Luke 22:44 records: “And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground

 

So here in Luke 22:44, we can see that Jesus was SO deathly afraid and SO anguished, that BEADS OF SWEAT were POURING to the ground, AS he prayed IN ANGUISH and with GREAT, GREAT ANXIETY!

However, WHEN Jesus added the Nevertheless, not as I wilt but as thou wilt to his highly anguished prayer, he was more or less saying that he ONLY wanted the cup of suffering to pass from him IF it was God the Heavenly Father’s will. Otherwise, he more or less said that he was WILLING to go through all the suffering he was about to endure (even AS terrifyingly AFRAID as he was, at that time), IF it was the Heavenly Father’s will, which it WAS! That is what’s known as “having faith in times of fear!” And it’s no doubt something that we ALL need to know and learn how to do!

So there you have it, folks! EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was greatly afraid at ONE point during his time on Earth! So what does that tell ya, people? It tells us that no matter HOW afraid you are, now matter HOW terrified or full of “anguish” that you feel over life/certain life circumstances, and/or no matter HOW disheartened you feel over something/someone, JESUS UNDERSTANDS! The PROPHETS OF OLD understand! JESUS’S DISCIPLES understand! For they THEMSELVES were once in YOUR shoes! So remember that, folks!

[[Let us not ALSO forget that Matthew 26:56 records “But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and FLED“. Translation? EVEN Jesus’s own DISCIPLES were afraid, at one point!]]

But now that we know HOW and WHY the following four biblical characters were afraid (Jesus being one of them), how did God (the Heavenly Father) respond to each of the four? Let us turn to the bible for the answer:

1). DAVID:

1 Samuel 31: 3-4 records: “And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers hit him; and he was sore wounded of the archers. Then said Saul unto his armour-bearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and thrust me through, and abuse me. But his armour-bearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul took a sword, and fell upon it”. 

Translation? Saul was punished seven-fold for trying to pursue and kill David (the “future king of Israel”). Saul had his “kingdom” stripped from him and given to another (which was David), and fell upon his own sword (dying a most disgraceful death), not to mention many other things.

In fact, in 2 Samuel 3, we read: “Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker“. Translation? There was a long “permanent conflict” between those who were loyal to King Saul and those who were loyal to David. And in the end, those loyal to Saul became fewer & fewer in number, while those loyal to David increased by “leaps and bounds”.

And David, when he REPENTED of his sins, (namely, the sin of “adultery” with Uriah’s wife Bethsheba, and then later having Uriah killed), he is later rewarded with yet ANOTHER son by Bethsheba (which was Solomon), among many other things.

In fact, 2 Samuel 12:8 records THIS: “And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things”.

Translation? When King David REPENTED of his sins and told the Lord point-blank ABOUT his fear & his anxiety, and had FAITH in the Lord’s forgiveness, the Lord rewarded him seven-fold with long life, a lasting kingdom and “over-abundance”.

Translation? God is there telling David that if what David attained had NOT been enough for him, that the Lord would’ve given onto him MUCH, MUCH MORE! Wow! What a statement! But then again, we only have to flip through the books of the bible to see HOW the Lord God BLESSES THOSE WHO REPENT OF THEIR FEAR(S) AND COME CLEAN ABOUT THEIR FEAR(S) AND/OR THEIR SINFUL ACTIONS!

2). ELIJAH:

1 Kings 19: 5-9 records:And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eatAnd he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.

And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of GodAnd he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, ‘What doest thou here, Elijah’?”

In 1 Kings 19:14, Elijah responds AGAIN and says to the Lord: “…..’I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away'”.

And the response from the Lord is found in 1 Kings 19: 15-18: “And the Lord said unto him, ‘Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room. 

And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him‘”. 

In other words, the Lord here is informing Elijah that he’s not the ONLY ONE who adheres to the Lord’s decrees……..that there are SEVEN THOUSAND Israelites who had NOT bowed down unto Baal, nor had kissed him (as if to imply that those who worshiped Baal actually KISSED his idol/image or something?)

Therefore, the Lord here is letting Elijah know that he’s NOT ALONE! This must’ve been a very, very comforting confirmation for Elijah while he lived out the rest of his days. That no doubt BOOSTED Elijah’s faith in the Lord. And when Elijah knew he was about to be taken from the Earth, he informed his “apprentice”, EliSHAH that he would soon be taken from him. And as he and EliSHAH were on the River Jordan…….

2 Kings 11 records:As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind

Conclusion? Even though this “highly powerful prophet of God” fled for his LIFE from Jezebel, God REWARDED him for “listening to the angel” and “coming back to service for the Lord”. God was SO pleased with Elijah and his faith after that, that he took him up to Heaven (much like Enoch!)

3). JONAH:

In Jonah 3:10, we read:And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not”. 

Okay, so in above passage, Jonah (albeit reluctantly), goes into the city of Nineveh and preaches the Lord’s message to the people! And as a result, THEY REPENT! All of them, EVEN THE KING! Wow!

But yet, Jonah was still a little “perturbed” at that point in time as Jonah 4:1-6 records:

But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry. And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O Lord, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil. Therefore now, O Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live”.

Then said the Lord, ‘Doest thou well to be angry?’ So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city. And the Lord God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd

Translation? Jonah kind’ve sort’ve takes a “chill pill”, realizes he shouldn’t be so angry and goes to “chill out” while he awaits to see what becomes of the city (if anything) of Nineveh. And the Lord God is SO PLEASED with Jonah for “taking a breather” that he decides to help Jonah stay cool in the hot, humid climate by placing a shadow gourd over his head to help him stay cool. And when Jonah saw this, the bible records that he was EXCEEDINGLY GLAD!

But again, only by FAITH did Jonah go into that dreadfully evil city, in the first place! Even if it was somewhat of a reluctant faith, it was faith nonetheless!

4). MOSES:

Exodus 10:28-29And Pharaoh said unto him, ‘Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die’. And Moses said, ‘Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more’“. 

Exodus 14:8 “And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand”

Exodus 14:10And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were SORE AFRAID: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord

Exodus 14: 13-14And Moses said unto the people, ‘Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever, The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace

Exodus 14: 26-31 “And the Lord said unto Moses, ‘Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen‘. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.

And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of themBut the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 

Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant Moses”

5). JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF:

In Luke 22:42, Jesus is SO afraid, that he starts praying the following: Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done”

So how does God respond, you might wonder? The answer comes one verse later, in Luke 22:43! “And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him”.

Therefore, the Lord God Heavenly Father SAW Jesus’s anxiety, HEARD his highly anguished prayer and sent one of the angels from heaven to strengthen him.

In Mark 16:6, we read: “And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him“. So here, we see that Jesus had resurrected from the dead (thus, ending the so-called time of “temporary separation” from God, the Heavenly Father!)

And later on in Mark, we read in Mark 16:19 “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God”

Therefore, Jesus was blessed with ETERNAL GLORY for all the “submissive” fear and suffering he had endured the night BEFORE his crucifixion, as well as the day OF his crucifixion, as well as the time right AFTER his crucifixion and right BEFORE his resurrection. And the time between his resurrection and ascension up to Heaven, was not only to PROVE his words that testified of God the Heavenly Father but also (I think) for the Lord God to give him some time once more to spend with his “friends”, his disciples.

5). As for Jesus’s disciples, they were no doubt “rewarded” by God for their FAITH by increasing the Lord’s kingdom “by leaps & bounds”. And not only that but their names will be recorded ON THE WALLS of the heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” today! How COOL is that? 😉

FINAL CONCLUSION: ALL prophets of the Lord had times when they fell short of the mark of righteousness. But the preceding 5 biblical characters up above (including the 6th group, the disciples) ALL feared at one point! However, when they REPENTED of that fear (in their hearts) and SUBMITTED to the Lord’s will INSTEAD, they were ALL BLESSED!

David’s kingdom was determined to be eternal by God, Moses successfully lead the ENTIRE nation of Israel out of Egypt, the city of Nineveh was spared God’s Wrath at the preaching of Jonah, Elijah restored people to the Lord and was taken up to heaven, plus Jesus successfully carried out God’s will on Earth by being crucified, etc.! Now just think for a minute if any of those biblical characters, after initially hesitating at the first, had instead acted on their FEAR, instead of their FAITH? Can you IMAGINE? 

So what can get gather from all this? Whenever one FEARS, HAVE FAITH! And remember the prophets that were before you! Even THEY were scared, sometimes! But yet, WHEN they submitted to God/the Lord’s will, they came to find that FEAR IS UNNECESSARY! It serves NO PURPOSE! Plus it actually TAKES ONE *AWAY* FROM GOD!

I close with the following biblical quote in the hopes that it will enlighten you and STRENGTHEN your faith and your spiritual walk in Christ:

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up

 

 

 

 

Is The Bible In YOUR Diet?

In a previous post entitled:  “Is Jesus in YOUR Diet?”, I talked about the importance of maintaining a healthy spiritual AND physical diet (while emphasizing the importance of a healthy physical diet). In THIS post, I’m gonna discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy SPIRITUAL diet!

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” – John 6:50-51

 

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” – Matthew 4:4

 

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread [spiritual bread of Jesus Christ] shall live for ever” – John 6:57-58

 

“And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ” – 1 Corinthians 10: 2-4

 

It’s very important that we spend time reading the WRITTEN Word of God (the bible!) For it is our spiritual nourishment! And without “time in the written word”, our spiritual walk with Christ begins to SUFFER! Why? Because we tend to think during those times & moments: “I don’t NEED to read the bible, I ALREADY know what’s in there!!!!!” and/or “What’s the POINT of reading the bible, I ALREADY know what the BASIC tenets of the faith are, so need I to know ANY MORE?” (OUCH!) 

For some, it can be kind’ve depressing to read about all the wars & battles in the Old Testament (“why so many deaths?”) and/or to read about what happened to Jesus during his consequent “arrest”, “trial” and “execution”. However, it’s important for us these days to READ about all those things and REMEMBER them and remember how GOOD (loving but firm) God is!

The Israelites winning the Old Testament battles were precursors to YOU AND ME (Christians/Messianic Jews/The Lord’s people) winning spiritual battles TODAY against the enemy! And all that stuff that happened to Jesus in the New Testament was PROPHESIED in the Old Testament!

And all those things HAD to happen, in order for Jesus to SHOW US that he is who HE says HE is, and that the written word – the bible – is itself what IT says IT is – the 100% complete written testimony of the Word of God [The Word of God ofcourse being Jesus Christ Almighty/HIMSELF!]

If your bible’s been collecting dust on the bookshelf, NOW’S the time to take it back out, dust it off & began re-reading it! If you’re not sure where to start, the Gospel of John is a good place or the Book of Acts. And if you prefer the Old Testament over the New, you can always start with Genesis, from the VERY beginning! And if you live in a country where bibles are forbidden or hard to come by, you can always PRAY that Jesus will show you dreams & visions about what the bible talks about! 

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” – Matthew 7: 7-8

 

I’m gonna tell you guys my own personal experience about what happened to me during all the times in my life when I did NOT read the bible every single day and the long-lasting effects it had on me.

One of the VERY first things I’ve noticed is that it starts out SO SMALL. I’d go to read one or two chapters and would suddenly feel very, very sleepy and couldn’t keep my eyes open. And then, the next day, I’d try to re-read that same passage and would AGAIN start to feel really, really sleepy. “What is the DEAL?”, I thought. “This is much too much to be coincidence! WHAT is going on, here?”

And I kept feeling this IMMENSE sense of guilt; thinking that the problem was ME! In other words, I kept internalizing it, thinking it must be MY fault if “I” kept feeling really, really sleepy while picking up the bible and reading it. And yet, when was the last time I had felt really, really sleepy while reading one of my favorite novels or the like? (Busted!)

So then, I went through this mental checklist of sorts: Am I bored by what I read? No. Did I get enough sleep last night? Probably not. Am I trying to read TOO MUCH of the bible at a time? Maybe”. And yet, NONE of those answers seemed to answer my question 100% satisfactorily as to WHY it kept happening…….

I felt tired, depressed, lethargic, moody. I became more “worldly”, and more concerned with the latest movies, books and TV shows, rather that on what Jesus and scripture said. Ah yes, Jesus……..the only begotten Son of God who died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins?

The one who saved me during my N.D.E. around 23 months or age or so and beyond? Sadly, he seemed to be the furthest thing from my mind as I dwelved into the “haven’t read the bible in a quite a long time” club! And then there was the “guilt factor”: “well, I haven’t read the bible in so long, how could Jesus ever forgive me?”

But yet, that’s when I realized something: when we don’t feel like reading the bible (for WHATEVER REASON), there is some HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE going on by Satan and his demons. But yet, Satan is good at getting us to turn it AGAINST OURSELVES by BLAMING OURSELVES for it, INSTEAD of blaming HIM/his demons for it, where all the blame should rightfully be! For if HE and his demons hadn’t first tempted us AWAY from reading the bible, then we would’ve (theoretically) been able to actually READ the bible without any problems!

Another reason we know it’s HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE is because of modern-day news stories like THIS

1). School told they can’t have “bible class”:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-public-school-bible-class-court-20170423-story.html

2). Teacher says student can’t read bible during “free reading time”:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/05/05/teacher-tells-student-cant-read-bible-in-my-classroom.html

3). Group wants bible removed from POW/MIA Display, despite YEARS of tradition:

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/04/07/advocacy-group-pushes-remove-bible-pow-mia-display.html

And folks, that’s just a small sample. There’s many, many stories about “removing bibles” or “bible classes” that I don’t have time to get into, right now. Therefore folks, it stands to reason: if there’s such STRONG drive to REMOVE BIBLES from school and public military displays, what makes anyone think that there’s also not a spiritual war happening in your VERY HEART over the bible and its precious contents?

When’s the last time you read ANY part of your bible? Be honest with yourself. It’s probably been awhile, hasn’t it? (And if you live in a country where a bible is not freely available, my heart goes out to you! I pray in the name of Jesus that you will somehow get access to the holy scriptures somehow!) And for those of you who LIVE in a country where a bible is freely available, WHAT ARE  YOU WAITING FOR? 

Folks, mark my words, the bible will someday be officially “outlawed”. There’ll likely come a time in Westernized nations where owning a bible is ILLEGAL……Yup, that’s right. ILLEGAL! (Especially in the New World/One World Gov’t system they’re trying so hard to set up right now!)

So READ your bibles front to back from Genesis to Revelation while you still can! Because you NEVER, EVER know when that “right” will be taken away from you! I’m DEAD SERIOUS on this, folks! Furthermore, if you KNOW what’s in the scriptures and what isn’t, you’re FAR less likely to be DECEIVED by Satan and his “workers” (both demonic and human). 

Many Christians today have time for Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, going to the movies, dinner with friends, Redbox movies, sports games, reading their favorite novels, etc., but yet, they DON’T seem to have the time to read the bible! They tell themselves that it’s too laborious, that it’s too much work, that they just don’t have the time to!” Well folks, what if Jesus were to be standing before one of those folks (myself included) and he told them someday that while he’d “like” to let them into “New Jerusalem”, he “just didn’t have the time to?” OUCH! 

In order for Jesus Christ to someday confess our name before the Heavenly Father and the angels, we must KNOW him personally; we must have a spiritual relationship with him. And the very BEGINNING of the foundation of that relationship comes by FAITH.

And according to Romans 10:17 in the New Testament: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“. In other words, we must READ (& FULLY ABSORB) the written word of God in order to HEAR IT IN OUR MINDS, HEARTS & SPIRITS! 

Sure, we could ALWAYS theoretically have faith in Jesus due to Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Lions Den or Moses parting the Red Sea, etc. But there’s just something about READING about it in print that ENHANCES the experience, as IF we were really there at the time of the great happenings of the bible!

Seeing it in movie form or listening to it on audio-book actually DETRACTS from the experience in a way since those two platforms make it an unemotional, INDIRECT experience. But reading it OURSELVES? That MAKES it a personal, emotional and DIRECT experience, almost as if reading somebody’s personal diary or autobiography of all the events that took place! Now think about this for moment: What makes reading someone’s diary or autobiography more PERSONAL to you? If someone ELSE reads it to you or IF you read it YOURSELF? Think about it, folks! 

Many Christians today based their “bible theology” on FEELINGS & EMOTIONS – what they FEEL to be true or SHOULD be true – other than what’s FACT! And that’s truly sad! For if these folks would read their bibles more often, they’d come to realize just how WRONG they are/were in their “assumptions!”

Imagine if YOU wrote YOUR own autobiography, only to have one your “proclaimed fans” come forth later and say: “No, this is NOT what they mean here……they in fact mean THIS” as IF that person knew you and/or knew your “thoughts”, personally! Wouldn’t you be so offended by that? I know “I” would!!!!!! So it is with God and his holy, written word. It’s “written in stone”, it doesn’t NEED to be interpreted or re-interpreted, as it were. Let the bible speak for itself! 

But going back to the Romans 10:17 passage once more: “”So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.

Some of you may be wondering what “hearing by the word of God” means. Well, Jesus Christ himself IS the Word of God. John 1:1-2 in the New Testament confirms this. Therefore, “hearing BY the word of God” simply means to hear it BY means of Jesus. And to hear it BY Jesus (NOWADAYS) means to hear Jesus speak through the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE!) Capeche? (Note: if you’re lucky enough, you can usually find a King James Bible/KJV bible with words of Jesus IN RED!)

So, for example, if you read the Book of Matthew, Chapters 5-7 in the New Testament (known as Jesus’s “Sermon on the Mount”), it’s not hard to “spiritually hear” Jesus’s voice in that sermon, as though you were one of the actual witnesses that were there that day. You can read Jesus’s words in those chapters and just KNOW without a doubt what Jesus was trying to say (and also what he was NOT trying to say!) 

And the book of John tells us exactly who Jesus is and where he came from, no questions asked. Genesis tells us how everything in the universe was made (more or less). In fact, each book of the bible has a “story” behind it. An interesting “tidbit” of God’s autobiography to the world; THE MOST amazing autobiography (and love letter) ever written in ALL of existence to ALL of mankind – those who choose to adhere to its contents, that is! Each “book” serves as a “chapter” of the Almighty’s “autobiography”. Question is, do WE as Christians fully accept it? “I” do! 

I don’t believe as a Judeo-Christian that I can just pick and choose which parts of the bible I believe and want to read and what parts not. What’s the point in that? Because the bible (philosophically speaking) is either ALL TRUE or it’s not, right folks? Yet I submit to you today that EVERY SINGLE WORD of the bible is true! EVERY. SINGLE. WORD! [Note: Don’t get me started though on how the words “alone” and “Easter” were improperly added – more about that in a different post]. 

2 Timothy 3: 16-17All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”.

In other words, lets say I’ve read the bible front to back (from Genesis to Revelation) a TON of times. But yet, I haven’t read it in a while. Especially the Sermon on the Mount. And lets say I’m holding a slight grudge against someone. Therefore, 2 Timothy 3:16 informs us that NOT ONLY is all scripture given by inspiration of God but that it’s our “golden measuring stick” of righteousness! 

Therefore, only by SCRIPTURE am I (the so-called Christian holding a grudge) able to see the “sin” of my grudge and the “proper” way to deal with it. Make sense, folks? That’s WHY it’s ever-so-important that we read our bibles (even if it’s only a couple chapters at a time) on a continual basis so that WE can know what “sin(s)” we must repent of and the proper, spiritual way to act when we’re living out our lives FOR CHRIST! 

Some Christians have plenty of TIME to read the bible but they get BORED of reading the bible. That, my friend, is yet ANOTHER type of DEMONIC ATTACK happening against that person whenever that happens! Or have you ever read a certain passage and a voice within your mind started to say: “Blah, blah, blah, I already know how this one’s gonna end?” YET ANOTHER type of demonic attack! There’s SO MANY TYPES of demonic attacks against us that Satan uses that most of the time, we’re not even FULLY AWARE of it! 

In fact, not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not, but here’s all the types of “demonic attacks” (by means of “distractions”) that have happened to me most times I’ve tried sitting down and reading the bible:

1). Thoughts about food/eating would pop into my head

2). I’d see an advertisement for something “cool-looking” at the bottom of the web page I was looking at for this blog (as in, end times news headlines)

3). I would start to sometimes feel really, really sleepy or suddenly get a “throbbing headache” out of nowhere

4). I would get chronically indecisive about WHAT part of the bible I wanted to read, which would then make me give up after awhile

5). Somebody would text me or call me on the phone just AS I was getting started on reading a chapter of the bible

6). I’d suddenly worry about my finances (for no conceivable reason) and would frantically log on to my laptop to check my bank statement

7). I’d get tempted to read a novel, instead OR to log online to check my work schedule

8). ETC.

Conclusion? Distractions are SPIRITUALLY DEADLY! Satan has no doubt tried to put as many “distractions” into our paths as human possibly in order to keep us from reading the written word of God (the bible).

But ya know what, folks? The Book of Revelation even offers a SPECIFIC BLESSING to those who read it:

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” – [Revelation 1:3]

But again, I DON’T think that just stands for the Book of Revelation only but for the ENTIRE BIBLE ITSELF! I believe that there is a SPECIFIC BLESSING for each and every Christian when they not only READ the bible but fully absorb its contents into their HEARTS, SOULS, MINDS & SPIRITS!

In fact, Romans 8:13 suggests that we must STARVE the flesh in order to FEED the spirit:

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”.

Okay, so what does that even MEAN, some may ask? What does it mean to “feed the spirit?” Just like what does it mean to “starve the flesh?” 

It means that we must put JESUS FIRST in our lives, even BEFORE our need of food, etc. Now, does that mean we should STARVE OURSELVES and stop eating food, altogether? Ofcourse not! It only means that from time to time, we should fast!

To “fast” means to go for a short period WITHOUT food. And during that time, we’re supposed to do nothing BUT pray & read God’s written word (the bible). This time can be anywhere from 6-24 hours, depending on one’s personal preference. Back in ancient biblical times, this is HOW the Prophets of Old obtained “visions”, “wisdom” or “answered prayers” from the Lord! By withholding physical “pleasures” such as food and showing God that God was FIRST in their lives! 

But it’s amazing JUST HOW FAST a person can “stray” from God/Jesus just by not reading their bible in awhile or just happening to be around people that don’t love or honor God! That’s why reading our bibles (and OFTEN) is how we stay CLOSE to Jesus, stay IN THE SPIRITUAL KNOW, become ON-GUARD against any and all SPIRITUAL ATTACKS, etc.! The bible is our MANUAL, our own “instruction book” of righteousness……even part of OUR SPIRITUAL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY – SATAN! (The Bible is FOOD FOR VERY *SOULS!*) 

TRUST ME FOLKS, what the Devil fears THE MOST is you reading your bible – AND PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE! So remember that, folks! Get to reading your bibles again, PUT IT INTO ACTUAL PRACTICE IN YOUR LIVES and spiritually PUNCH Satan where it hurts!
