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:

    • 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 ANTICHRIST’S/”FALSE WORLD MESSIAH”/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. 

 
 

Why So Many Bible Translations and Church Denominations?

Step inside any Christian bookstore today and not ONLY will you likely see VERY LITTLE books about God/Jesus SPECIFICALLY (aside from the bibles, ofcourse) but you will also notice alot of self-help books, books with authors’ pictures taking up the entire book cover, OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE PRICES for most items and SEVERAL different bible translations!!!!!

NIVDidCatholicGiveBnkjv2a

NOTE: The newer bible translations claim to be “better” and “more readable” but what I’m about to tell you is gonna rock you to the core!

Revelation 22: 18-19 says: For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book”.

And what’s interesting to note about this is that the New King James Version has omitted and changed NUMEROUS words! According to http://www.av1611.org/nkjv.html

The NKJV removes the word “Lord” 66 times!
The NKJV removes the word God 51 times!
The NKJV removes the word “heaven” 50 times!
In just the New Testament alone the NKJV removes 2,289 words from the KJV!
The NKJV makes over 100,000 word changes!

nkjv2aAnd that’s just from the NEW King James Version, that doesn’t even scratch the surface of all the OTHER numerous word changes in the OTHER new bible versions (such as NIV, NSRV, ERV, etc.)

The King James Version came from ONE translation source while all OTHERS bibles came from a completely DIFFERENT translation source. But one thing is clear! The holy, divine Word of God is NOT to be tampered with! And that’s EXACTLY what these supposed “newer” versions DO!

So the next time you go out and buy a bible, please make sure it’s the King James Version!

And as far as all these SEVERAL church denominations go, that ALSO goes against the words of the bible (in and of itself). Because the holy Word of God is not like going to a fast food drive-thru where you can “customize” your experience to “only have the lettuce without the tomato”, or “only have the cheese and tomato with mustard but no lettuce”.

God’s Word isn’t like that! God’s Word is holy, pure and TRUE! People that lived back during the time of King James were VERY, VERY careful about EVERY SINGLE WORD they copied, trying to make sure it was as accurate as possible! Do you really think that modern-day publishers have cares of such regards? All they see are $$$$$ signs, think about it, folks!

And same with many modern church leaders of today as well. They aren’t so much concerned about souls as they are $$$$$ signs. Which brings me to my next point. Why so many church denominations?

When you go back in time during the time of Jesus Christ, you see three major religious groups at the time. The Romans/Pagans, the Orthodox/loyal to Rome Jews who denied Jesus, and the Jews who followed Christ (now known as early Christians). And since then, there have been various others who’ve tried to distort Jesus’s message/divinity.

You had Mohammed who tried to say that Jesus Christ was never crucified (in spite of the fact that SEVERAL non-Christian accounts prove he WAS crucified), you had Catholics saying that Mary was higher than Jesus and/or coequal with him, you had Mormons say that Joseph Smith was necessary for salvation, you had Buddhists say that Buddha was a god, Hindus say that Brahma was God and was in everything and everyone, various people THEMSELVES claiming to be God (such as Marshall Applegate, David Koresh, Jim Jones, Jose Luiz Jesus De Miranda, etc.)

In other words, over time, Jesus’s divine message of salvation for sins became distorted by all the false teachings and false religions out there. And WITH the false religions and false teachings out there came people who decided to pick and choose for their own (to pick and choose WHAT parts of the bible they wanted to believe or disbelieve). And you CAN’T do that, if you truly want to follow Christ!

You can’t just say that you’re going to help feed the poor, but not follow the true, biblical Sabbath, for instance. Or you can’t say that you’ll follow all the 10 commandments but not the Sermon On the Mount teachings, since the Sermon on the Mount teachings EXPAND upon the 10 commandments in great detail!

Or you can’t just say that you’ll follow the Sermon on the Mount teachings but NOT the 10 commandments, since the Sermon on the Mount teachings DERIVED FROM the 10 commandments themselves! Just like you can’t say you believe the whole bible MINUS the book of Revelation, as the book of Revelation is CENTRAL to the conclusion of the ENTIRETY of the bible!

But yet, that’s EXACTLY what church denominations DO…….they pick and choose what they want to believe and what they DON’T want to believe and it’s very, very tragic. Because IN doing so, they turn their eyes from the truth and instead turn to lies! Just look at HOW MANY Christian churches today worship on the FALSE SABBATH (Sunday) instead of the TRUE SABBATH (Saturday) and that participate in PAGAN-ORIGINATED HOLIDAYS (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc.) while NOT participating in the Lord’s REQUIRED 7 Annual Celebrations (such as Passover, Pentecost, etc.)

Were most people and church leaders even aware that the Lord’s people will STILL be participating in the Lord’s 7 Annual Celebrations (specifically, Feast of Tabernacles) in the New Millennial Kingdom? Do they even care? Why would the Lord have his people celebrate that in the Millennial Kingdom ONLY but not here during mortal time on Earth, especially when Jesus Christ HIMSELF and the apostles celebrated all 7? Think about it, folks! He wouldn’t! He requires us to celebrate all 7!

[Side note: There are some very good books out there that talk about the Lord’s 7 annual feasts and how to celebrate them. I would strongly recommend the following: “Celebrating Jesus in the Biblical Feasts” by Dr. Richard Booker and “The Feasts of the Lord” by Kevin Howard and Martin Rosenthal].

Remember Jesus’s passage 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 fulfill. 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”

At that point in time when Jesus spoke those words, the cross/plan of salvation needed yet to be fulfilled……..BUT…….everything will NOT be COMPLETELY fulfilled until the VERY END of the book of Revelation [Revelation 22’s conclusion!] Think about it, folks!

There are some out there that claim that Revelation ALREADY HAPPENED in the 1st century and that the passages were specifically meant for the Romans, ONLY. But ya know what? If that were true, (if Revelation had already happened, that is), then ALL the inhabitants of the Earth that ever lived (from creation until now) would have ALREADY been judged and Jesus Christ would ALREADY be ruling over/on the Earth during the time of his Millennial Kingdom! But SINCE those events haven’t happened yet, we know that the majority of the things written about in the book of Revelation have YET to happen.

How many modern day churches do you know of that teach about the book of Revelation and/or bible prophecy? My guess is probably very few and far between.

And of the churches that DO discuss such things, do they emphasize the SUNDAY (False) Sabbath or the SATURDAY (True) Sabbath?Do they mention sin and the need for salvation? Do they talk about the importance of following all the things that Jesus layed out for us in the bible [10 commandments, Sermon on the Mount commandments, etc.] and of NOT following the things that are NOT written anywhere in the bible? Do they talk about the IMPORTANCE of “living APART from the world”?

Do they encourage you to celebrate Jesus’s birthday AND death, even though the bible never actually commanded us to celebrate Jesus’s birthday, only to commemorate his death during the Lord’s Supper? Do they say that you can only be saved by faith or by works alone (which would be a false teaching)? Do they talk about the importance of GROWING in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ by relying on HIM for your life and NOT on your fellow man/mankind?

Do they talk about the IMPORTANCE of suffering WELL for Jesus’s namesake and that suffering for Jesus Christ is actually considered a BLESSING in the kingdom of God? Do they teach you to forgive others who have hurt you and to pray for your enemies? Do the pastors and fellow church members cry tears of joy when they talk about how they came to Jesus Christ and what Jesus means to them?

People are SO confused these days about what “bible” to pick to read (“there’s so many different translations out there, how can I know which one is best?”), what religion to follow (“there’s so many religions out there to choose from, how do I know which one is right?”) and what church to go to (“there’s so many churches to choose from, which one is possibly best?”).

But ya know what? That was Satan’s plan since day one. To DIVIDE AND CONQUER the Lord’s children. And how best to do that? By creating MASS CONFUSION. And how best to do THAT? By creating MANY different bible translations, MANY different religions, and MANY different churches and church denominations.

But don’t fall fool to his game! Pick up a King James Version bible today (the ORIGINAL KJV and NOT the “New” KJV/NKJV) and instead of going to church (a place where, in today’s “secular world”, you will more than likely NOT find the true, biblical God talked about in the bible), read it front to back, on your own, in your own spare time.

And DON’T turn to televangelists or the internet to try to understand difficult bible passages but instead pray to the Lord Jesus Christ that he will reveal the true meaning of those passages to you, instead. And believe in Jesus Christ and trust him and live your very LIFE for him! Remember that Jesus Christ said in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments”.

That means don’t just READ about the 10 commandments or the Sermon on the Mount commandments, etc., OBEY THEM! Pray for forgiveness of your sins and REPENT (that means, give up/stop doing) your sins. Then get baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

And don’t listen to all the false teachers out there that say FALSE things, such as: “there’s no such thing as sin”, “we no longer need to keep the 7th day Sabbath”, “we don’t need to read the Old Testament, anymore”, “the Lord’s 7 Annual Festivals are JEWISH Festivals, ONLY”, “Once Saved, Always Saved”, “we are saved by our works”, “it’s OK to partake in Pagan holidays if we Christianize them”, “you don’t need to be baptized at all”, “baptism is by sprinkling and not full immersion”, “hell and/or the book of Revelation are not real”, etc. etc.

I pray that ALL who read this find a King James Version bible, will find the hope and 100% truth that is in Jesus Christ/God Almighty in the flesh and will NEVER, EVER become victim to a “false church”, “counterfeit bible translation” (other than KJV) or “false teaching”. Amen.

The “Anti-Bible Movement”: Modern Apostasy

2013 Update:

Back around 2008-2012 or so (and possibly beyond), there was this MAJOR movement on Youtube called “you don’t need to read your bible at all, you ONLY need to have a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ”. And one of the founding fathers of this movement was a guy on Youtube [username: finalcall07] who had the appearance of an Old Testament prophet and really seemed to know what he was talking about in his videos.

He had some videos that speak truth in them and that encouraged people to come to Jesus Christ. And while that fact, in and of itself is good, he’d oftentimes have videos that completely went against the Word of God in the bible. He said in some of his videos that he has “no sin”, that “bible knowledge/bible reading/bible study is not necessary”, that the bible is “fallible” and not God-inspired, that Satan’s favorite is “bible study”, that we “don’t need to worry about or watch for the signs of the 2nd advent of Jesus Christ”, that God is “not found in the bible”, etc.

The “Jesus” he followed at that point in time was NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible. It was a different “Jesus”, altogether. And it took me awhile to see that. You see, I myself used to subscribe to him on Youtube. That is, until someone else pointed out his errors to me and showed me that he often teaches contrary to the bible [even though he also has many teachings that DO go with the bible, which in turn, produces mass confusion].

Now, don’t me wrong, I am not personally “judging” that guy (that will be left up to Jesus Christ himself on the Day of Judgment). I am however, warning others not to follow him or any OTHER individual for that matter (including local church pastors, Christian friends/family members, televangelists, etc.), without first personally lining up and verifying EVERY single thing they say with the written Word of God in the bible; EVERY S I N G L E THING. [For example, did you know that the fires of hell are not eternal but only a temporarily “holding cell”? Read Revelation 20:14!]

But anyways, back to the story. So I was subscribed to him over a long period of time and started listening to his Youtube teachings instead of reading the bible for myself. I figured that I was ok since this guy “really seemed to know what he was talking about”. I thought to myself “well, here’s what appears to be a true man of God, I’ll just listen to HIS teachings about the bible so I won’t have to read the bible”.

And look what happened! I myself was deceived and then started to, in turn, have many “errors” in my OWN teachings on Youtube and as a result, unintentionally deceived many of my OWN subscribers in the process…..for they’d write things underneath my videos that said “great video”, “nice video” without even noticing the errors I had made (or if they HAD noticed the errors, they just didn’t say anything).

[Update Dec 2013: I haven’t seen any of his youtube videos for a really long time and have no idea if he STILL preaches those same false messages he did back around 2008-2010 or so (and possibly beyond) or not on Youtube but I pray with all my heart that he and his followers will repent of those teachings before it is too late and their souls are lost for eternity. It gives me no pleasure to write such posts and I’m only using that as an example of a much bigger picture of the problem of false teachings floating around on Youtube. And yes, the bible DOES say that we are to make peace with our enemies but it never says anything about “silently tolerating” false teachings for we are to ALWAYS & FOREVER keep the “lost sheep” in mind!]

Not to mention that I was ALSO deceived by simply assuming that ALL Jesus movies were based DIRECTLY on the bible and never strayed from the words/events of the bible. Boy, was *I* wrong! [For example, in the bible, it says that Jesus called out the first FOUR of his 12 disciples (two by two) while walking along the sea of Galilee and in the movie “Jesus: The Greatest Story Ever Told” [starring Jeremy Sisto as Jesus],  it has the first 2 disciples coming to Jesus, instead, etc.!

[Not to mention that on the DVD movie cover and halfway through the film, it shows off Jeremy Sisto’s chest – as if to try to advertise Jesus having “sex appeal” & also contains a “letter from the Pope” in the extra features but that’ll be another post, altogether!] Now, I know some may argue “rights of the movie makers to have a little leeway” but does Jesus Christ himself EVER “ok” a little leeway when it comes to his words in the bible? NO! ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Which brings me to another point. When you see someone’s “error” (be it on a blog, Youtube, whatever), POINT IT OUT TO THAT PERSON IMMEDIATELY using patience, love and the written Word of God in the bible. And if you see, read or hear ANY false teachings on WordPress/Facebook/Youtube/etc, the bible says that we are to rebuke them (first privately: 2-3 times…….then, PUBLICALLY if they haven’t yet repented!) Though we are to do so prayerfully & with the love & guidance of the Holy Spirit. Remember that even just ONE false teaching has the power to lead MANY astray! So even ONE false teaching is one too many & must be dealt with IMMEDIATELY!

Jesus & the apostles NEVER dealt with “false teaching” in a private manner but only in a public manner! Remember that we are always & forever to have the “lost sheep” in mind as we rebuke false teachings! [Also please realize that lovingly yet FIRMLY publicly correcting false teaching is NOT the same as judging a person UNLESS you say it in a way like: “that’s a false teaching & you’re an idiot for believing/teaching it!” Many want to say that to CORRECT a false teaching is to judge a person but that’s FALSE! Like I said, correcting a false teaching only “becomes” judging someone if we correct the false teaching while insulting the person teaching/believing it. Think about it, folks!

But anyways, after a couple people pointed out some of my own “errors” to me, I IMMEDIATELY deleted all of my videos, REPENTED to the Lord and my subscribers and vowed & promised that from now on, I’d be reading the Word of God in the bible as often as I could and meditating upon it so that I’d never be deceived (or unintentionally deceive others) ever again! That’s the whole point I’m trying to make. If/when you don’t read the bible for yourself, YOU *WILL* BE DECEIVED, MARK MY WORDS!

Here’s what happens when you do NOT read the written Word of God in the bible for yourself:

1. You don’t truly know what the written word of God in the bible says or doesn’t say. Which in turn, opens you up for deception by others [especially pastors, Youtube preachers and televangelists) who “appear” to know the written Word of God in the bible. [Which, in turn, will make you fall victim to the doctrines of men, instead of the true doctrines of God/Jesus Christ Almighty!]

2. People will spiritually “walk all over you” and try to AGGRESSIVELY get you to bend to “their” way of thinking about the bible. [And because of your true lack of knowledge about the bible, such people will *succeed* in deceiving you, right and left!]

3. You will become lukewarm and lazy and won’t have the necessary spiritual armour to GROW in your faith in Jesus Christ.

4. You will not truly know what Jesus Christ expects or doesn’t expect of you.

5. You will unintentionally deceive yourself & others & become arrogant & lazy.

6. You will become part of the group of people that Jesus Christ says to someday “depart from me, ye workers of iniquity! I never knew you!”

7. Your prayer life will fall to the wayside and you’ll fall back into sin, just like that.

8. You will have no spiritual wisdom & become full of fear, having no true faith.

9. You will falsely believe that you are saved. [Note: Reading the bible in & of itself isn’t what saves you. It’s a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. But without knowledge of the bible, your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ will fall by the wayside & become non-existent].

And then there’s the fact that there’s SO many different bible translations and denominations out there. “What is the deal?” you might ask. Well, oddly enough, the KJV (original King James Version) comes from one text while ALL OTHER bible versions come from another. The new versions “claim” to be translated for “better readability” but in all actuality, they change hundreds upon thousands of words (even the total “context” of many words) and even omit some words altogether. Which really makes me wonder. Revelation 22:18-19 is VERY CLEAR that we are not to add or subtract words from the bible. There are Old Testament passages that assert to that fact, as well. Not to mention the 1st century Christians copied every letter of the bible VERY, VERY CAREFULLY, so as to try to be sure that nothing was omitted or changed. But again, don’t just take MY word for it. Go to the website for yourself.

http://av1611.com/kjbp/articles/reynolds-nkjv.html

As for the reasons of many denominations? Simple. The Devil wanted people to STRAY away from the true Words of God in the bible and the ONLY way he could think of to do that was to get man to stray from the true written Word of God in the bible by clinging to TRADITIONS and teachings of man, instead of the teachings of God in the bible. Satan used the bible to destroy and divide people. That’s why there’s over 2,000 denominations today. But even the non-denominational churches aren’t exempt from false teachings. They only cling to the doctrines in the bible that THEY want to cling to, most times. In many ways, they are no different than denominational churches. But when will it all END? It will end when people crack open their bibles and START READING THEM, FRONT TO BACK. That’s when.

In closing, I would like to say that if ANYONE tries to come at you and tell you that the 10 commandments no longer apply and that Jesus Christ IS the Sabbath, RUN! FLEE from such a person and do NOT look back! Next to the damnable hearsay that “bible knowledge is not necessary”, this is one of THE MOST dangerous teachings now flying around on Youtube. This false teaching in question is like a venomous snake. Once it sinks its teeth into the soul of a person who’s turned their ears from the true word of God in the bible, it poisons their soul. And if they don’t repent & come back to Jesus Christ and his true gospel before it’s too late, they will be lost for eternity! Meaning, they will burn in the “fire that never quenches” forever & ever. Now, before you write off hell as “mythical”, check out Mary K. Baxter’s testimony of hell.

“What if I rebuke someone and they refuse my correction?” you may ask. Well, let me start off by asking you this. Have you spoken the truth of them with love, patience, humbleness & conviction? Have you backed up what you said with the written Word of God in the bible to lovingly show where they are in error? Have you prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ for the personal fate of their soul? If you answered yes to all of these questions and tried to lovingly rebuke the person 2-3 times and they still don’t listen by the 3rd time, then you will have to FLEE from such a person and their teachings and never look back….

That’s not to say that it’s not still possible for the Lord to still save the soul of the person at a future date. But at the current moment in time, if you’ve humbly, patiently and prayerfully tried to rebuke them 3 times already and they don’t listen after the 3rd time, they are headed on the path to darkness and if you defend them or keep on arguing with them, you will be headed on a path to darkness, too. For Jesus told us to lovingly rebuke someone that’s teaching false doctrine but Jesus never said that we are to “continually” argue & bicker with someone. [Trust me, sometimes the best way to get someone to see their error is to lovingly rebuke them 3 times and then back away & let the Holy Spirit take over the rest].

Signs of the Last Days mentioned in Bible

Note: Though this particular post has some pertinent information (related to bible prophecy), the following posted link here has FAR more updated information on the fulfillment of bible prophecy in today’s world (in the last days): 

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/?s=signs+of+the+last+days

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

Dead birds, mammals and fish were prophesied in the times of the Old Testament (hundreds+ years before Jesus Christ ever walked the Earth).

Ecclesiastes 9:12  “For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them

Hosea 4:3 “Therefore shall the land mourn, and everyone that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the fields, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea shall also be taken away”

SECOND UPDATE on Wednesday, January 5, 2011:

So far, there have been hundreds (if not possibly thousands) of birds dying in mid-air and then falling out of the sky [as well as several hundred or more dead fish washing up in certain areas] in the U.S. states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky & Maryland. There have also been dead fish washing up in Brazil, dead birds dying in mid-air in Sweden and dead fish washing up in New Zealand with many of them having their “eyes missing”. Over in England, several dead “crabs” have washed up on shore.

FIRST UPDATE on Wednesday, January 5, 2011:

There has been *mysterious* mass deaths of SEVERAL blackbirds and LOADS of drum fish in the Arkansas River around New Years. Nobody knows what caused the deaths. And it’s not just here in the U.S. It has occurred on OTHER continents as well. This is NOT coincidence and is only a sure “sign” of more things to come……much bigger, greater (and possibly even more mysterious).

Another interesting thing that’s happened most recently is the “biblical flooding” that’s happened in Australia (an area flooded about the size of France & Germany combined, which is what I’m told is the approximate equivalent of both U.S. states of Texas and New Mexico combined). But again, it’s not really coincidence, folks! Natural disasters in and of themselves have increased by 300% or more in the last several years. But don’t just take MY word for it: look up all the data charts for yourselves!
