About dreamwalker1960

Just so some will understand where I stand on some things. 1) if you choose to be homosexual that is your choice. If you want to get married then having a civil ceremony is your choice. I don't believe the church should let you feel you are not living in sin by allow you to marry in a church. I wish you the best and wish you no harm. 2) I support abortions in the case of rape and threat to the mother life. I do not support it for those that wish to live a life without responsibility or consequences for their sexual activities. To me that baby is a living being the moment he or she is conceived

HOW THINGS ARE:

The daily live of an ordinary human:

They get up. They go into the world and to seek to make a living. Now in the way we live in the world today the book of Ephesians applies to the world at large:

Ephesians 6:5-9 – Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. 6 Try to please them all the time, not just when they are watching you. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. 7 Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. 8 Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free. 9 Masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Don’t threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and he has no favorites.

Let’s rephrase that for today so you the listener or reader will understand:

Employees, obey your employers with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. Try to please them all the time, not just when they are watching you. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free. Employers, treat your employees in the same way. Don’t threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and he has no favorites.

We shouldn’t seek to leave the world, for we are to be a light unto the world. Showing them the true path to salvation. The problem is. Most that profess to being “Christian” do not know the truth. They do not truly know how they are to live a Christian lifestyle. They think they do, but they truly don’t.

This is scene in many places within the Bible and from Christ Himself… a prime example:

Matthew 6:19-24 – “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. 22 “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! 24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.

Most ignore this. Not wanting to come to terms with it. Not seeing that their eyes are unhealthy. They don’t understand that God already knew when His Son walked this earth that we humans would be living the lives we are living today. Slaves to a money system to receive our daily bread. However, in many countries this has caused them, in a way to be rich.

WHAT IS REQUIRED:

With this in mind, God guided those that wrote the gospels to three times repeat the same story, yet again many reject what this story means to them personally.

Mark 10:17-22 – As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good. 19 But to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’” 20 “Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.” 21 Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

When we accept Christ as our Savior we are given specific instructions on how we are to prove our fellowship to Him.

  1. Obey the commandments (All of them. This is not just the ten, but all taught in the in books of Deuteronomy and Leviticus that were not overridden by Christ dying upon the cross.)
  2. Sell off our possessions. Why?

1 John 2:15-17 – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

You see when we seek after what is of this earth, we do not follow God nor His Son, but our own wants and desires. If we seek after what gives us comfort, we do not seek after God, but what is pleasing to ourselves. Our god is no longer the Creator of us all, but ourselves.

The Bible makes it clear what we are to do, to be His true and devoted followers. We are to sell off our possessions. We are to downsize. We are to get rid of debt, and to have money ready at hand to give to those in need. As shown here:

2 Corinthians 9:6-13 – Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 8 And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 9 As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” 10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. 11 Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. 12 So two good things will result from this ministry of giving—the needs of the believers in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God. 13 As a result of your ministry, they will give glory to God. For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.

“For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.”

You cannot do this in a huge house. You can not do this is a new car. You cannot do this in fancy clothes.

Therefore, we must downsize to show our conformity to the wishes of He who died upon the cross for our sins. Once we accept Christ as our Savior, He makes it clear that we are to do as He says, especially if it is said three times.

2 Corinthians 13:1 – This is the third time I am coming to visit you (and as the Scriptures say, “The facts of every case must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses”).

Most will be scoffing at this. The mere fact that they did is itself verification…. Look how the Pharisees responded:

Luke 16:14-17 – The Pharisees, who dearly loved their money, heard all this and scoffed at him. 15 Then he said to them, “You like to appear righteous in public, but God knows your hearts. What this world honors is detestable in the sight of God. 16 “Until John the Baptist, the law of Moses and the messages of the prophets were your guides. But now the Good News of the Kingdom of God is preached, and everyone is eager to get in. 17 But that doesn’t mean that the law has lost its force. It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the smallest point of God’s law to be overturned.

So why question what has been shown here?

Because they do not wish to let go of their comforts. They do not wish to let go of their true god…. themselves. Take a key element that Christ states in His words to the Pharisees.

“What this world honors is detestable in the sight of God.”

Does the world honor seeking after the best? The biggest? The most expensive? The most beautiful?

Yes. Yes. Yes. And yes.

Then those that seek after it are seen by God Himself as detestable.

Yet they call themselves “Christian.” They call themselves “saved.” They call themselves “born again.”

Yet God just called them detestable.

How can they be right with Christ if He sees them as detestable?

I will allow those listening to make that call for themselves. For it is each person’s own choice as to how they will stand before God. Either in robes of white or as a defendant in their eternal trail which will occur before the Great White Throne.

Matthew 7:21-23 – “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

As I have established before none cast out demons unless they are a follower of Christ as established in Matthew 12:

Matthew 12:25-32 – Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart. 26 And if Satan is casting out Satan, he is divided and fighting against himself. His own kingdom will not survive. 27 And if I am empowered by Satan, what about your own exorcists? They cast out demons, too, so they will condemn you for what you have said. 28 But if I am casting out demons by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you. 29 For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger—someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house. 30 “Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me. 31 “So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy can be forgiven—except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven. 32 Anyone who speaks against the Son of Man can be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, either in this world or in the world to come.

Again, there is a key statement made by Jesus Christ right here:

“Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.”

Those that do not downsize. That keep their wealth, their huge houses, their fancy cars. Their golf clubs, their box seats at football stadiums. Their bright and fancy clothes. They are against Christ. They are against God. They are seen as detestable in the sight of the Lord.

Christ is soon to return. Repent. Downsize. Glorify God.

God Bless.

Discussion

Time to time I encounter those that wish to attack my podcasts. I have learned to be very longsuffering. In one of these recent meetings the person claimed I was not working through the Holy Spirit because they found evidence of things that Christ forgave long ago on my Facebook page. They became haughty and self-righteous. Claiming they had been proven right. This was truly something that was sad.

This person crossed a line, and the Bible has verses addressing this:

Matthew 7:1-6 – “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. 6 “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.

I have done Bible studies upon this in the past (Podcast #57 – A study of the verses about Judging one another) So I will not go into that.

Why I have read these verses is because that is what occurred that day. The person judged what I had posted.

When it comes to these podcasts, I do my best to pray and allow the Holy Spirit to guide my hand. Especially in the case of the message this person decided to make their judgement about. (Podcast #102 – The Seven letters of the book of Revelation for this moment in time)

We must understand that we are in the last days. In my last podcast I was guided to post these verses:

1 Peter 4:12-19 – Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world. 14 If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. 15 If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. 16 But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name! 17 For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News? 18 And also, “If the righteous are barely saved, what will happen to godless sinners?” 19 So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.

Those within the seven churches as I was guided to explain are not all of the Body of Christ. They may have been, but they are no longer. It is this factor that caused this person to become so zealous.

Let me now restate that part of the podcast which made this person to enter into sin and cause for themselves a greater burden upon their soul, it is the fifth letter to the churches:

Revelation 3:1-6 – “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. 3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. 4 You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘

What is important at this very moment:

This is the message from the one who has the sevenfold Spirit of God and the seven stars: “I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive—but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God. Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief. Yet there are some in the church in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes with evil. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

This is addressed to those that have embraced the false teaching of “once save always saved.” The very first sentence says volumes “you have a reputation of being alive – but you are dead.”

A blanket statement that their names have been blotted out of the book of Life. A power given to Jesus Christ and a power He does use. Many are those that embrace the lie and with zealousness attack those that have shown patience and love in trying to help them awaken to the truth, by showing them the Truth, who is Jesus Christ our Savior.

I have done past podcasts on this very letter. One of them is (podcast #75 – Sardis)

Within these studies I establish an important fact from the words of the Glorified Jesus Christ:

Revelation 3:5 – He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

“I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life.”

I have broken this verse down into the Greek and explained that this is one of various verses within the Bible that makes it very clear that the teachings of “once saved always saved” is false. However, I will restate the important word in this sentence:

Blot out – 1813 – to smear out, that is, obliterate, erase, wipe away

Christ Jesus was given the ability to not only add names to the Book of Life but to remove them as well. This means that salvation can be lost. So, you cannot always be saved.

These are the words of the Glorified Jesus Christ. To deny these words is to deny He who spoke them.

Matthew 10:33 – But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

To be denied to God means again you cannot continue in salvation.

This is sad, but it is Truth.

Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

If you do not feel pain then you did not hear the true word of God, but a false teaching. For a false teaching is people pleasing as witnessed with Galatians 1:

Galatians 1:6-10 – I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. 8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed. 10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

Those that seek to please people teach things like you cannot lose your salvation. While Christ Himself said this:

John 15:1-6 – “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

You cannot be a part of the Vine unless you are born again. Yet, Christ makes it very clear that a branch upon the Vine can be removed and cast into the fires of damnation. These are again the Words of Christ.

So those that challenge and attack. Do not challenge and attack the person saying the Truth, but He who first spoke the Words. This is what is truly and completely sad.

They attack God with such vehemence. Because they sorely wish the words that counter the lie, they have embraced, to be wrong. Yes, I said they attack God, through His Son our Lord Jesus Christ who asked God to send us the Comforter who is the Holy Spirit. Because a human speaks, they are blinded to the truth that it is God they attack.

But yet there is need for more verification.

When these people attack. They do so in not a very kind manner. What does the Bible say about this?

We can look to two letters:

Galatians 5:19-21 – When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 6:3-5 – If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, 4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5 useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.

When those that attack the Word of God because it does not fit into their area of comfort they do so in hostility, and they resort to quarreling displaying outburst of anger. Thus, causing dissension and division. All of this is evidence of what? That they follow their sinful nature. Yet more evidence that salvation is dying within them.

They are obsessed with disputes and arguments over words. Yet when they feel they are victorious in their attacks against God they show pride.

Do they not see that they are not right with God?

No, they do not, most refuse to give way to the Truth.

Here is part of that Truth:

Isaiah 66:24 – “And they shall go forth and look Upon the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm does not die, And their fire is not quenched. They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.

Anger rises once again. Shouting is going on that I am saying they are destine for the lake of fire. Did I say that? Did I imply that?

No. that was their own guilty conscience.

What else does the Bible say?

Romans 2:1-11 – You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things. 2 And we know that God, in his justice, will punish anyone who does such things. 3 Since you judge others for doing these things, why do you think you can avoid God’s judgment when you do the same things? 4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin? 5 But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. 6 He will judge everyone according to what they have done. 7 He will give eternal life to those who keep on doing good, seeking after the glory and honor and immortality that God offers. 8 But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness. 9 There will be trouble and calamity for everyone who keeps on doing what is evil—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. 10 But there will be glory and honor and peace from God for all who do good—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism.

These words were written to those that professed to being “Christian.” It is made clear that they too will face God’s judgement if they continue to live in evil. Once again backing up the words of Christ Himself.

It is time to repent. It is time to live like true Christians. For Jesus Christ is soon to return, and if you wish to make that first rapture. You must make yourselves truly His followers.

God Bless

1 Peter 4:12-19 – Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world. 14 If you are insulted because you bear the name of Christ, you will be blessed, for the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you. 15 If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. 16 But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian.

Being in the last days, as we are right now, an important statement is made in these verses:

1 Peter 4:17 – For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God’s household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News?

God is passing judgement upon all that profess to being “Christian” at this time. If you are not going through some type of trial or tribulation, then you are not suffering as Christ did.

What does this imply? I will allow you the listener or reader of this podcast to come to that conclusion.

What is important?

Coming to know the true Word of God by reading it for yourself. Some may have their trails as they read the Bible for themselves. They will find that things they thought were true wasn’t. Last week I listed ten false teachings. Most of them embraced by millions that profess to being followers of Christ.

Knowing we are right with God can only come with studying the Word of God.  Coming to know that for most of the time Christianity has existed the teachings given by men do not match the Word of God. This is witnessed in many actions that became part of History. The Crusades, the conquest of the Americas are just two examples. Another is those that seek to have their names go down in history. When the Bible makes it clear that this earth’s past will never be remembered.

The seeking after wealth and comfort, as well as seeking after a place in history has been a main stay within all of humanity for centuries, yet the Bible says this about those that seek to have their names remembered as well as to be rich:

Isaiah 65:17 – “Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth, and no one will even think about the old ones anymore.

James 5:1-3,5 – Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. 2 Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This corroded treasure you have hoarded will testify against you on the day of judgment….. 5 You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every desire. You have fattened yourselves for the day of slaughter.

“This corroded treasure you have hoarded will testify against you on the day of judgment.”

These last verses were spoken to those that called themselves the followers of Christ. Therefore, which day of judgement is being referred to here?

Matthew 7:21-23 – “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

Revelation 20:11-15 – And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. 12 I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. 14 Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. 15 And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

At this time though we are not to that point. Most still have time to correct themselves:

Revelation 18:4 – Then I heard another voice calling from heaven, “Come away from her, my people. Do not take part in her sins, or you will be punished with her.

What are these sin?

The sins of the City of Babylon are not just seeking after riches and trying to gain a plaxce in history. It is also living like those in the time of Noah and of Sodom and Gamora.

Galatians 5:19-21 – When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.

The obvious sins, many say with all their hearts, they do not do. This may be true. I do not know the hearts of my fellow humans. I only know my own. I know the struggles that I suffer. I know how Paul felt.

Romans 7:18-19 – And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. 19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.

If you do not feel this anguish within your life. How can you say you have a repentant heart?

Think on that a moment.

Paul the thirteen apostle. Chosen by Christ Himself to teach the Gentiles of God and His Son. Yet he felt like nothing good was within him.

Why?

Because he truly understood the human heart. He was born into religion. Raised in religion. He became a Pharisee. He thought himself righteous and special, to the point that he hunted down and slew Christians.

I know many that profess to being “Christian” and they look down upon their fellow human. They think themselves greater, better, blessed. Yet they do not know they just announced to the world that they are themselves Pharisees. They do not realize that compared to Jesus Christ Himself they are wrenched and miserable.

Why?

Because we live in corruption.

We live in sin. We can never be rid of it, and any who say otherwise are teaching a false gospel. Yes, we are forgiven by Jesus Christ. Yet the struggle never ends within us. Paul proved this in those verses from Romans.

Anyone who believes and thinks themselves perfect do not have a repentant heart. If any thinks, because they have God within them, they are privileged, do not understand the Bible.

Yes, we have the Holy Spirit within us if we have been filled, but this shouldn’t cause us to believe we are special. This should cause us to be cautious and afraid to enter into sin. For we are told not to tarnish the Holy Spirit, for when we stain the Holy Ghost we tarnish Christ we tarnish God.

Does this not give you fear of the wrath of God within your own heart?

Well, it should, this is something that Paul himself knew and acknowledged to the world in the verses we will once again read:

Romans 7:18-19 – And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. 19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.

This is said in Galatians:

Galatians 5:16-18 – So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. 17 The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. 18 But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses.

Two things need to be said from these verses.

  1. If you don’t feel conflict within your soul, then you do not seek to be Christ-like.
  2. If you are not directed by the Holy Ghost, you are answerable to the laws of Moses.

So, any who say we can do things like get tattoos and call themselves “Christian” are not following the Holy Spirit and so fall under the law which says not to paint our bodies, and if what I just said upset you. You need to remember the verses from Galatians, which were read earlier. So, I will restate them:

Galatians 5:19-21 – When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

I have met many that call themselves “Christian” and they display many of these behaviors. However, they make little effort to remove these from them. for they themselves see that they are holy. Oblivious to the truth that Christ Himself will deny them when they stand before they Great White Throne Judgement in total bewilderment.

Repent for His return is nigh.

God Bless

Today I will be showing the top ten false teachings that now plague humanity. These are not in any particular order. However, they are not found in the Bible.

#10 – the self-glorification teaching.

               A teaching that we are special. We are wonderful. That because we are now one with God we are His glorious child and all lies.

Here is how someone should see themselves because this is how Paul saw himself:

Romans 7:24 – Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?

We are constantly at battle with our sin nature as witnessed here:

Galatians 5:16-26 – So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. 17 The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. 18 But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses. 19 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. 22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. 25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. 26 Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.

If a person lives in any of the sins listed in these verses that person is not one with God. They are in reality one with sin and so will suffer the fate of those that live in this sin.

Now remember the verse from Romans and how Paul thought of his own mortal nature. Any who think of themselves as great while living in this sin filled body do not think much of God our Creator, and if they do not think much of God. then who are they truly glorifying?

Themselves. For they are their own gods.

If it is peace in contentment people seek after by glorifying and pleasing themselves remember these verses:

1 Timothy 6:6-10 – Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. 7 After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. 8 So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. 9 But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.

We will return to this later. For those that seek to make you feel glorious have another agenda in mind as well which is another false teaching, but we will move on to something else at this time.

#9 – you are only guaranteed true salvation if you speak in tongues.

This is what the Bible says:

1 Corinthians 14:1-5 – Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. 5 I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification.

Seeking after tongues is a spiritual gift, but it is meant more for one-on-one time with God. It is something for one’s prayer life, not for show to the world.

I have and do speak in tongues. When I was first filled with the Holy Spirit, I spoke it, but I do not shout it out to the world, for my gift does not lead to prophesy.

Those that say you must speak in tongues, and you must do it for all to hear and see is not Biblical. Thus, it is a false teaching. Again, designed by humans to edify the self and not God.

#8 – Celebrating Christian events on solstices.

This was established by the Catholic Church at the first council of Nicaea. Their “goal” was to help pagans to accept Christianity.

A prime example is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. For hundreds of years after His ascension it is something that people were trying to pin down. Their best guesstimate is September from 4 to 2 BC. Not 0Ad. It was Pope Julius I around 350AD that made this the day to celebrate Christ’s birth and so now all commemorate this day which is on or close to the winter solstice.

The term “Easter” does not have to do with Christ’s death or resurrection. From the New Unger’s Bible Dictionary this is said:

“The word ‘Easter’ is of Saxon origin, Estra, the goddess of spring, in whose honor sacrifices were offered about Passover time each year. By the eighth century Anglo-Saxons had adopted the name to designate the celebration of Christ’s resurrection.”

So, this is why we should not celebrate December 25th. As well we shouldn’t call Easter that name. I prefer Resurrection Day.

#7 – the confessional.

We have only one mediator:

1 Timothy 2:5-6 – For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.

To seek repentance from another human and then to say a few prayers does not relieve us of these sins. They stay with us and corrupt and destroy us. Only the Blood of Jesus Christ can wash away sin and having a truly repentant heart.

Repentance is defined as: the fact of showing that you are very sorry for something bad you have done in the past, and wish that you had not done it.

Saying a few words in a pray and then going and repeating the same sin over and over is not repentance it is acceptance of sin. We should strive to remove all sin from our lives no matter how painful it may be.

This goes hand in hand with

#6 – sprinkle baptism

This is done to newborns in most cases. To a child that cannot speak nor has any idea what is going on. Nor do they know who Jesus Christ is. Heck they barely know their own parents. This leads into

#5 – water baptism done before the age of consent and also not in the name of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ said this:

John 3:5 – Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.

Christ’s ministry did not begin until He Himself was baptized. (Matthew 3:13-17)

This can only be done when someone has true repentance and desires not to live in sin. Sin does not begin in any human until they reach the age of consent. Which has been shown through the Jewish faith to be at the age puberty begins. This is when someone becomes fully aware that they are corrupt and need salvation. This is why this is said about corrupting children before the age of consent:

Matthew 18:1-6 – About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?” 2 Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. 3 Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4 So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. 5 “And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. 6 But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Acts 2:38 – Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Not: “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,” but in Jesus Christ.

By the way, the name of the Holy Spirit:

John 14:26 – But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

Is Jesus Christ.

#4 – those who insist upon praying for all the world to see and hear

Matthew 6:5-8 – “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. 6 But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. 7 “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. 8 Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!

I recently did an entire message and Bible study on this in episode #103 entitled: “We are told not to pray in public.” Look to that for a deeper look into this false teaching that makes people to pray in public in a way all will know that they are doing so.

#3 – Prosperity teaching

It is these teachers that also teach self-glorification. Those that tell you to seek after worldly treasures. To seek after wealth, luxuries and comfort here in this temporal plain of existence. For your own self-comforts and glory. This goes 100% against what is taught within the Bible:

1 John 2:15-16 – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

And by the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself:

Matthew 6:19-24 – “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. 22 “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! 24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.

Nuff said on this for once you deny the Word of Christ Himself you deny Him to the world.

#2 – teaching people they can live in sins that the Bible states clearly will not allow them into heaven

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:19-21 – Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

It is made very clear. Live in these sins and never end them and you will not go to heaven. Remember this from 1 Corinthians as well:

1 Corinthians 6:11 – And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

Do not say you cannot end these sins. For they can be ended as witnessed in this verse. They were water baptized and received the Holy Ghost and with Christ’s help they ended those sin that would deny them heaven.

Will it be easy? I can say in all honesty. No, it will not. It will be painful and shattering to your very core, but it can and needs to be done if you truly seek to be in the presence of God for all eternity.

And we now come to #1 – those that follow the false teaching of “Once saved always saved”

This is nothing, but a ticket to live in sin and never to truly seek repentance. It is also ultimately the greatest denial of Jesus Christ Himself. For He makes it very clear in His own words that salvation CAN be lost:

John 15:1-6 – “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

If this is not enough, I refer you to my past podcasts: #69-71 (Salvation is not guaranteed parts 1-3).

So, these are the Top Ten false teachings that are corrupting millions into believing they are one with God, when that is the furthest thing from the truth.

Seek after God through Jesus Christ. For His return is near and time is running out for everyone.

God Bless

Discussion

When people become aware that they may have learned something incorrectly from what they heard about the Bible. They sometime become fearful, and at times angry or aggressive. They especially do this if it goes to the root of what they believe to be truth, but the Bible itself says otherwise.

When I was studying the twenty-third chapter of Matthew. The Holy Spirit caused me to focus in on the following verses:

Matthew 23:13-15 – “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation. 15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

Let us look more closely at these verses:

Matthew 23:13 – But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

It is made clear that those that are within a group that teaches a false doctrine will, to the point of force, stop someone who has seen the truth. They will attack and fight to keep what they feel is “truth.” Not allowing any others to find the real Truth and find their way into the presence of God through Jesus Christ.

They will be argumentative coarse and even arrogant. We are instructed this on those that behave in such a manner:

1 Timothy 6:3-5 – If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, 4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5 useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.

One of the major keys in these verses that were just read is these words:

“Even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ”

Those that cling to false doctrine deny the words spoken by Jesus Christ Himself. Do you understand the import of that statement?

Matthew 10:33 – But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

Does this not go with what the Pharisees were doing? I will allow you the read or listener to come to your own conclusion.

Matthew 23:14 – Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

This is reference to those that seek after and take money, especially from those that are suffering from lose of a loved one. I have seen many televangelists that partake of these practices and even film the person in sorrow feeling joy and surrendering over the earthly money they need to get a new start in this temporal existence. This in many cases causes them to turn away from God instead of turning towards Him which may lead them not into Heaven, but to have to stand before the Great White Throne. Simply away from the salvation they should have received by seeking after the truth and mayhaps finding it though the trial that God placed them in.

Matthew 23:15 – “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

This is reference to missionaries that teach false doctrines and believe with all their hearts that they are doing good. They bring many to their verses of “salvation,” then leave the people to their own devices not truly teaching them the Word of God so they falter and fall returning once again to sin. Many believing they are still one with the Lord thus making it worse for themselves then if the missionary had never come to their area and led them down a rosy path to damnation.

2 Peter 2:20-22 – For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A DOG RETURNS TO HIS OWN VOMIT,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

Now that I have read these three woes. I have been led to take a different approach to those out there that wish to hear those teachings that make the listener feel better about themselves. However, the message does in no way lead them into rejecting the way they live. Again, like the Pharisees.

These woes, though spoken to the Pharisees nearly two thousand years ago, have a new focal point in today’s world. Millions believe with all their hearts that they are one with God. That He is going to call them into heaven just before the tribulation begins.

What is one of the key elements that identified those within the Pharisees and Sadducees. They made up false teachings that echoed the Laws of Moses but in reality, had nothing to do with the Truth of these Laws. They were false laws, forced upon the people to follow.  Yet they themselves for the most part didn’t bother to do so themselves.

Millions walk into the buildings called “churches” and sit in the pews. Millions stand before these people on the dais and tell them they are loved by God. They are told they are special. They are told that they are His select. That they are greater and better because He is their protector. They have their ego’s stroked, but they feel no remorse for their actions. They curse. They speed. They commit adultery. Some even do worse. They live in sins that we are told will not allow them entrance into heaven. Yet they were just told that they are welcomed into heaven. (Matthew 7:21; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesian 5:5)

Understand this.

If the Bible says you cannot get into heaven. Then you cannot get in. If you cannot get in then you are living in a lie if you believe you can.

If this makes you angry. If this makes you upset. You need to stop and think for the Bible says this:

Galatians 5:19-21 – When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

Those that do this have just declared to the world that they follow the world and not God.

There is a way around this. Listen to the Truth. Know that living in sins that are clearly shown lead not to heaven but to hell. Know that you must repent. You must end these sins, these lifestyles.

Let me give you a description of the lake of fire before you continue that thought that you would rather go to hell than end living in your current lifestyle:

Isaiah 66:24 – And as they go out, they will see the dead bodies of those who have rebelled against me. For the worms that devour them will never die, and the fire that burns them will never go out. All who pass by will view them with utter horror.”

This is the reality of what it means to live in sin. All those sins that the Bible says will not allow a person entrance into heaven go to this place. This place where fire burns and worms eat upon their flesh will be something they feel every single day of every month of every year for billions upon billions of years.

I don’t say these things out of hate. I say these things out of love for my fellow humans. I wish none to suffer this fate. Yet millions that go into the buildings called “churches” believe with all their heart that they will never experience this. Yet this is the furthest thing from the truth.

It is these people that believe they are exempt from God’s wrath. Just because they go into these buildings and give their tithe and even stand upon the dais. Yet they live in sin. They commit sin. They make people that hate God continue to do so because they see people like this living in sin, in wealth, in luxuries and comfort. Yet there are starving children literally just down the road. Not just starving because they lack food, but because they lack love, and the true teachings of the Bible.

Mark 10:21 – Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

How many believe that their true value is measured upon how wealthy and comfortable they are?

And everyone of them is living in and for sin.

1 John 2:15-16 – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

If someone does not have God in them then they are not of God. If they are not of God then for whom do they truly serve and worship?

2 Corinthians 4:4 – Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

Too many people believe that those being blinded are those that do not call themselves “Christian.” However, the majority of those that do live in this manner go by the aforementioned title and believe they are perfect and glorious.

Only God is perfect and glorious. Only He deserves the glory forever and ever.. Amen

Discussion

Once of my greatest sorrows is seeing those that say they are for the Lord. Basically, use Him as an excuse for their own wants and desires. They think and believe they are one with God. With all their heart they say they are His children. However, their words and their actions say otherwise.

Hebrews 6:4-6 – For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— 6 and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.

One thing I have noted in many areas within those that profess to being “Christians” is their willingness to exclude the nation of Israel. They chose to ignore the covenant that God made with Abraham.

What is a covenant? It is a formal agreement or promise between two or more people or between God and a man.

With God though it is something greater. Between our Lord God and the father of Israel it is a statement that Israel will never see any end.

Many that profess that they are “Christian” reject Israel; say they are to replace Israel. The nation from which the Messiah came.

Jeremiah 31:31-34 – “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

This is restated in Hebrews 8:7-12

This is the reaffirmation to Israel that they will never be left separated from God. Any who question this deny He who made this promise. Yet millions do. They say things like “spiritual Israel” and saying they are Israel’s replacement.

Then why bother to say this:

Romans 2:9-11 – There will be trouble and calamity for everyone who keeps on doing what is evil—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. 10 But there will be glory and honor and peace from God for all who do good—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism.

Let us say that last verse once again for those that believe they are greater than Israel:

“For God does not show favoritism.”

Any who say there is no place for Israel just said that God DOES show favoritism, when the Bible makes it clear that He does not.

Another thing that I find interesting is the unwillingness of people to look at what people throughout the centuries of concluded about what is found within the Bible. People like Polycarp, Clement of Alexandria, John Calvin, and John Milton just to name a few.

These men studied the Bible and as well as Hebrew and Greek. Yet people believe they know more than these people. I have said in the past that I do not believe the words of humans over the Word of God, but when what they say falls in line with the Bible are they not in line with God?

What can be clearly stated is that if you wish to truly know the Word of God each person must not just read the Bible, but truly study it for themselves. All the way down to the Hebrew, Aramaic, and the Greek if they truly wish to know God and His Son our Mediator and Savior Jesus Christ.

Now that I have said this, I will show the verses of Revelation that deal with a certain group within the Tribes of Israel.

 Revelation 7:1-8 – Then I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds so they did not blow on the earth or the sea, or even on any tree. 2 And I saw another angel coming up from the east, carrying the seal of the living God. And he shouted to those four angels, who had been given power to harm land and sea, 3 “Wait! Don’t harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have placed the seal of God on the foreheads of his servants.” 4 And I heard how many were marked with the seal of God—144,000 were sealed from all the tribes of Israel: 5 from Judah, 12,000; from Reuben, 12,000; from Gad, 12,000; 6 from Asher, 12,000; from Naphtali, 12,000; from Manasseh, 12,000; 7 from Simeon, 12,000; from Levi, 12,000; from Issachar, 12,000; 8 from Zebulun, 12,000; from Joseph, 12,000; from Benjamin, 12,000.

These are Messianic Jews. We must take the Word of God literally and not attempt to play word games with the Word. For when you start to place into it what is not there you change the Word to please those listening. And what happens to those that do this:

Galatians 1:6-10 – I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. 8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed. 10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

So those that place themselves above Israel are giving a false people pleasing teaching that cause them to be cursed by the Lord our God.

Now they will take exception that these words have been spoken. However, they have already forgotten the verses we started with today, so I will restate them:

Hebrews 6:4-6 – For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— 6 and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.

And to them I will add this:

2 Peter 2:20-22 – And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”

And once again this:

John 15:1-6 – “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. 3 You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. 5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned.

This is not a people pleasing message, this is the Truth.

This is why people do not wish to hear messages like this one.

2 Timothy 4:1-5 – I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when he comes to set up his Kingdom: 2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. 3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will reject the truth and chase after myths. 5 But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 – For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

That time has come, and many think they are better than those that tell the truth.

James 4:10-11 – Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. 11 Don’t speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you.

The other day I encountered someone that could not hear the Truth. They argued and attacked. They thought themselves better more superior because they were in the right and I was in the wrong. Yet I quoted the Bible and showed the Word of God. Yet I was in the wrong and they were in the in right. They knew better than the direct quotes of the Bible. The direct Word of God.

“If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law.”

Oh Lord how much longer must we endure those that listen to fables and believe they are greater than your Word?

God Bless

Discussion

Matthew 6:5 – “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.

Why start today’s podcast with this verse?

The other day I was walking through a campground and a lady was outside praying. As I passed her site, apparently, she saw me and started to pray loader. In my head I praised God and His Son our Savior Jesus Christ, but I didn’t even look in her direction.

I prayed to God if I should say anything to her about this and the Holy Spirit told me not to say anything to her, but instead to do this podcast.  So, here we are.

Now why is it I felt the need to even say anything in the first place?

Partly because of 2 Timothy 4:1-5, but also since this is said in verse six of the sixth chapter of Matthew:

Matthew 6:6 – But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

Jesus Christ instructed all who follow Him to pray in private. Not on public display for all the world to see. He also clearly identifies those that do pray in public:

“Don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them.”

Those who openly pray for all the world to see them are identified as “hypocrites.”

By who?

Jesus Christ

What does Christ say next:

“I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.”

Now this brings up an important element that needs to be looked at. I once again need to quote from 1 John:

1 John 2:15-17 – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

“a craving for everything we see”

1 John 2:16 – For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

“The lust of the eyes”

Lust – G1939 – epithumia – desire, passionate longing, eagerness for, longing

               a: longing – a feeling of wanting something or someone very much

eyes – G3788 – ophthalmos – the eye, sight

               a: sight – something that is in someone’s view

Simply, it can be said, that it is a great desire to be seen is one of the definitions of this.

Many believe they are right with God if they show all their “great faith.” However, God desires what from us?

Colossians 3:10-17 – Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. 11 In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us. 12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. 16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

What are the fruit we are to seek to bear?

12 – Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

Colossians 3:12 – Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering.

Bowels of mercies – G4698, G3628 – tender mercies

Kindness – G5544 – chréstotés – goodness, uprightness, kindness, gentleness

Humbleness of mind – G5012 – tapeinophrosune – humility, lowliness of mind, modesty

               a: humility – the quality of not being proud because you are aware of your bad qualities

Meekness – G4236 – praotés – mildness, gentleness, meekness, kindness

               a: meekness – the quality of being quiet, gentle, and unwilling to argue or express your opinions

Longsuffering – G3115 – makrothumia – patience, forbearance

a: – forbearance – the quality of being patient and being able to forgive someone or control yourself in a difficult situation

When praying in public the person doing so is not displaying humility nor are they showing a quality of being quiet. So, in essence they are not bearing fruit for the Lord. They are not placing God foremost in their minds.

Instead, they are causing those about them to look at them. To think about them. To center upon them. Simply to glorify themselves and not God. That is why that is all the reward they shall receive, for it is not something stored in heaven but is displayed here in this temporal plain of existence.

This also applies to those that dance about in churches screaming out “halleluiah,” or shouting out in tongues as we are to seek after per 1 Corinthians 14, but in quiet. Those that do any type of ministry that has their name in the title is another example. Because they are seeking the glory, the focus. We are to glorify only one name, only one being, that is Jesus Christ. When this is not done that is all the reward they are going to get, for they are not showing glory to God, but themselves.

For centuries people have behaved in a certain way. They have been taught to seek after things here in this world. As shown in 1 John 2 this is not Biblical. This is the same thing that happened to Israel. Time and again they would drift away from God. Seeking after things of the world, and what happened to them? Time and again they were punished by God for turning away from Him to themselves. Then finally due to their own selfishness and arrogance they crucified the Son of God. Then just over one generation later the nation of Israel was abolished for nearly 1900 years.

More and more of those that profess to being “Christian” behave in a manner that does not truly bear fruit for God. Recently due to the “vid” we witnessed what could be called a great falling away and per many has not rebounded. However, as I have shown in a past podcast (The Biblical teaching of the mask and also what foods to eat) many went about wearing masks, but if they truly put their faith in God, they wouldn’t wear them. The fact that they wear them shows more self-concern and self-glorification then trusting and giving glory to their Creator. Simply those that professed they were “Christian” and wore or keep wearing masks announced to all the world that they are not.

How many of you listening or reading have truly read Matthew chapter 7?

How many truly followed the train of thought Jesus was presenting to us in that chapter?

Let’s look at it:

Matthew 7:12-23 – “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets. 13 “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. 14 But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. 15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. 16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. 20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions. 21 “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

Now as I have established in the past only those that have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior can cast out demons as established in Matthew 12:25-30. Consequently, this entire section is Jesus talking about those that at first said they would follow Jesus and so follow the golden rule. They turned from seeking to glorify God to seeking to line their pockets with money as established in 2 Peter 2:1-3. Thus, turning them into Pharisees.

Luke 16:14-15 – Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. 15 And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

Therefore, those that seek after the things of the world like wealth comfort and luxuries, as well as wearing masks are seen by God Himself as an abomination.

Think and ponder, for the hourglass is nearly empty till Christ Jesus’ returns.

God Bless

Blog for Podcast #102 (The Seven letters of the book of Revelation for this moment in time)


Intro

This is Dreamwalker1960. As a reminder you can read the transcripts of all my podcasts at dreamwalker1960.com. You can use most podcast platforms if you wish to listen. All you need do is do a search for Dreamwalker1960.

This podcast will be long. It is this way since this message must get out there and there are those too afraid to listen to a multiple part message. This is not me a human speaking. I am guided by the Holy Spirit. This is important.

Discussion

When the Glorified Jesus Christ appeared to John and instructed him to write the book of Revelation. He said this about the seven churches:

Revelation 1:20 – This is the meaning of the mystery of the seven stars you saw in my right hand and the seven gold lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

What does this tell us?

Simply that the people in these churches were people that had accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and God had assigned angels to watch over them.

What happens between God and angels is something that is not important to us at this time. What is important to us is the churches themselves, for this is the body of Christ on earth.

As I have discussed in past podcasts the spirit; the essence of these churches is still present today. They are concurrent all seven of them. They are also chronological the first letter representing the early church as a whole and the last letter represents how on whole the church of God is now. This was covered in the podcast “The Chronological order of the letters to the Seven Churches in Revelation.”

This podcast is going to look at those churches that represent those that profess to being followers of the Christ.

However, I must state that this does not necessarily say someone is truly saved or not saved. For if you truly listen to these letters there are those that live in sin in these churches and so they are no longer truly a part of the Body of Christ.

That is why the Glorified Christ said to write these letters to the churches not to those of the Body in these cities. For Christ Himself knew there were those that had turned their backs upon Him.

When these letters were written John was one of the last to have actually walked, talked and ate with the Son of God our Savior Jesus Christ. Most if not all in these churches were what all that now call themselves “Christians” are today. People acting upon faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Messiah.

The First letter:

Revelation 2:1-7 – “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, ‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. 6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” ‘

What is important to those of today:

This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand, the one who walks among the seven gold lampstands: “I know all the things you do. I have seen your hard work and your patient endurance. I know you don’t tolerate evil people. You have examined the claims of those who say they are apostles but are not. You have discovered they are liars. You have patiently suffered for me without quitting. But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first! Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first. If you don’t repent, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches. But this is in your favor: You hate the evil deeds of the Nicolaitans, just as I do. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give fruit from the tree of life in the paradise of God.”

The one element in this letter that I as a human cannot address is the mention of the “Nicolaitans.” All evidence has been erased from the earth. A testament to the reality of Jesus Christ. For He saw them as a plague upon the Body of Christ and the mere fact they have no further mention of them except once more in the book of Revelation and the fact that they can be found no where in history shows just how thoroughly God acts when removing something from existence.

Many live in belief and in their eyes faith and so act in the positive ways listed as follows:

These people work hard for God and have found those that are false teacher and prophets. They have exposed them to the world and they themselves have turned their backs upon these evil people. These people have been loyal to Jesus Christ and have borne many trials for the sake and glory to and for God through the Holy Spirit. They have not turned their back upon God nor His Son our Savior Jesus Christ.

However, He has something against these people. They no longer place God nor His Son foremost in their thoughts:

Matthew 22:37-38 – Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

Those that live this way and do not place God first in their lives He makes very clear that they shall be removed for His very presence if they do not repent and place God first through Jesus Christ in ALL that they do.

There is something in our favor too. Who has preplaced the “Nicolaitans?”

That I can answer.

The majority of the last church. The “lukewarm.” I know this is my calling. To press home the truth of those that live in comfort and leisure here in this world yet profess to being “Christian.” As long as we strive to awake these before it is too late, even though all evidence shows us that they won’t listen. (Revelation 7:9-14) We showed our faith to God and His Son by preaching the Truth and trying to awaken them to this Truth.

The Second letter:

Revelation 2:8-11 – “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write, ‘These things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: 9 “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.” ‘

What is important now:

This is the message from the one who is the First and the Last, who was dead but is now alive: “I know about your suffering and your poverty—but you are rich! I know the blasphemy of those opposing you. They say they are Jews, but they are not, because their synagogue belongs to Satan. Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. Whoever is victorious will not be harmed by the second death.”

There are many in this world that suffer persecution even now. But the Spirit within me leads to turn this letter towards those that will find themselves still here in this temporal plain of existence, after the last trumpet blast. Taking the few that were wise and watchful for His return into the skies above. It is made clear in Revelation 7 that billions will die during the tribulation, and they will all profess that God is the true God and His Son the Savior, the Messiah. Many if not most of these billions will be the lukewarm of the last letter. This letter is to those that find their true faith and repent. This message is for them.

The Third letter:

Revelation 2:12-17 – “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: 13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. 15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth. 17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ‘

What is important to those churches that now reflect this church:

This is the message from the one with the sharp two-edged sword: “I know that you live in the city where Satan has his throne, yet you have remained loyal to me. You refused to deny me even when Antipas, my faithful witness, was martyred among you there in Satan’s city. But I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you whose teaching is like that of Balaam, who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to sin by eating food offered to idols and by committing sexual sin. In a similar way, you have some Nicolaitans among you who follow the same teaching. Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of my mouth. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give some of the manna that has been hidden away in heaven. And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it.”

In this I have been led to point to the Church of England. In this case the person martyred is Thomas More who showed loyalty to God not the Catholic Church. The Church of England is this city of Satan though and the very sins mentioned run rampant in this nation.

The Fourth letter:

Revelation 2:18-29 – “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: 19 “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. 20 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. 22 Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. 23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. 24 “Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. 25 But hold fast what you have till I come. 26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations— 27 ‘HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON; THEY SHALL BE DASHED TO PIECES LIKE THE POTTER’S VESSELS’—as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star. 29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘

What is important to those in today’s churches that follow this model:

This is the message from the Son of God, whose eyes are like flames of fire, whose feet are like polished bronze: “I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things. But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality. Therefore, I will throw her on a bed of suffering, and those who commit adultery with her will suffer greatly unless they repent and turn away from her evil deeds. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am the one who searches out the thoughts and intentions of every person. And I will give to each of you whatever you deserve. But I also have a message for the rest of you who have not followed this false teaching (‘deeper truths,’ as they call them—depths of Satan, actually). I will ask nothing more of you except that you hold tightly to what you have until I come. To all who are victorious, who obey me to the very end, to them I will give authority over all the nations.  They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star! Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

The first half of this is aimed at the Catholic Church and those that still partake of this religion that has from its very begins have sought to corrupt humanity. The last part of this is addressed to those that followed that which was started by Martin Luther when he posted his 95 theses on the church door. Thus, beginning what was called the Reformation. Within this group are those that have remained true to God through His Son our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Fifth letter:

Revelation 3:1-6 – “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. 3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. 4 You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘

What is important at this very moment:

This is the message from the one who has the sevenfold Spirit of God and the seven stars: “I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive—but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God. Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief. Yet there are some in the church in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes with evil. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

This is addressed to those that have embraced the false teaching of “once save always saved.” The very first sentence says volumes “you have a reputation of being alive – but you are dead.”

A blanket statement that their names have been blotted out of the book of Life. A power given to Jesus Christ and a power He does use. Many are those that embrace the lie and with zealousness attack those that have shown patience and love in trying to help them awaken to the truth, by showing them the Truth, who is Jesus Christ our Savior.

The Sixth letter:

Revelation 3:7-13 – “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “HE WHO HAS THE KEY OF DAVID, HE WHO OPENS AND NO ONE SHUTS, AND SHUTS AND NO ONE OPENS”: 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name. 13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘

To those that now live:

This is the message from the one who is holy and true, the one who has the key of David. What he opens, no one can close; and what he closes, no one can open: “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me. Look, I will force those who belong to Satan’s synagogue—those liars who say they are Jews but are not—to come and bow down at your feet. They will acknowledge that you are the ones I love. Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown. All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God—the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.:

I have been led to say this is for those that are Messianic Jews. Those that are of the Jewish bloodline and have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior.

The seventh and last letter:

Revelation 3:14-22 – “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘ “

To the lukewarm once again the words of the Glorified Jesus Christ:

This is the message from the one who is the Amen—the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation: “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference. Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne. Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

Stop seeking after comfort and luxuries. Sell off your earth goods and seek after heavenly treasures. Live only for God and endure suffering for His Glory and His alone or be forever removed from His presences.

God Bless

Discussion

As we come to the end of the age of the Gentiles, we must come to an understanding about the fourth gentile nation. Here is how Daniel described this forth nation, this fourth beast:

Daniel 7:7 – Then in my vision that night, I saw a fourth beast—terrifying, dreadful, and very strong. It devoured and crushed its victims with huge iron teeth and trampled their remains beneath its feet. It was different from any of the other beasts, and it had ten horns.

Many believe that once Rome fell apart that this fourth nation ceased to exist. However, that is the furthest thing from the truth.

Does not the world still work under the calendar established by the Romans?

The answer is: yes, we do.

Then the entire world is still technically within the Roman dynasty. They still reflect the behavior of the fourth beast.

Take the colonization of the America for example. Several cultures were totally destroyed fitting the description of the 4th beast. Consequently, this verifies that the fourth beast, the fourth nation is still active even at this time.

The great compromise otherwise known as the First Council of Nicaea, was when Christianity left the steadfast doctrines of the Bible for the concessions with the world. Thus, again matching the fourth beast. This is given form in the actions displaced by the Catholic Church, which made it illegal to worship God unless it be done per what they governed. While those in power showed great greed and avarice. As shown by the great wealth they gathered unto themselves and did not follow the teaches found within the Bible which compared their actions to the Pharisees.

Luke 16:14-15 – Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. 15 And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

They not only perverted the Body of Christ, but they changed the Bible itself to fit their will and desires. If you question this church, which controlled all, you were excommunicated. Kicked out and exiled so you could not corrupt that which was already corrupted.

It took the fall of the Byzantine empire to the Muslims that returned the truth to the Roman Catholic Empire, which caused Martin Luther to come into contact with the true Gospel that had been stored in Constantinople. Through his studies of the true Word of God he come to post his 95 theses in 1517. Thus, starting the Great Reformation.

For nearly the entire time Christ has been gone from this temporal realm, those that profess to being “Christian” of have sought after that which is called an abomination in the sight of God. Most of it done in His and His Son’s name, but in reality, was totally against the teachings within the true Word of God, and thus against God. However, it did reflect the true nature of the fourth beast. Thus, proclaiming the world that the Catholic Church based in Rome carried on what the pagan Roman Empire had started.

For the next 1100 plus years this remained unchallenged, but even after the reformation most of the errors established by the Catholic Church carried into the new denominations. This was exemplified by the mentality that caused the creation of the Church of England. A church created out of the lustful desires of the ruler of England: Henry VIII.

Time and again throughout the centuries peoples all through what became the known world were trampled underfoot of the fourth beast. Most in the name of Christendom, but in reality, was done though actions known as an abomination to God Himself.

It is these actions that contributed to the great falling away predicted within the Bible.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 – Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead. 3 They will say it is wrong to be married and wrong to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten with thanks by faithful people who know the truth. 4 Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks. 5 For we know it is made acceptable by the word of God and prayer.

Matthew 24:10 – And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other.

Opening the door to the greatest turning away that is just now beginning to rear its head:

2 Thessalonians 2:3 – Don’t be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed—the one who brings destruction.

Many that wish to deny the existence of God have used the actions of those acts performed by the beast of the fourth gentile nation and not the actions of God. Even though they proclaimed to be doing it in the name of the Creator of all. Yet the mere fact that their actions were done in a way to gain personal wealth and self-glory. Again, totally opposite the teachings of the Bible.

Those that deny God say that those that pursue after wealth and luxuries in the name of Christ are His followers, yet as was witnessed earlier God considers their behaviors an abomination. Yet they insist upon these lies for they wish to live in their sins, they wish to be their own gods. They wish to accept that the blackness that they have been told is truly a nothingness. For this will allow them to perform acts so heinous that they can continue to do it only for their own adrenaline rush. A rush that dissipates quickly and leaves them once again to be in sorrow and displeasure in the world around them. Consequently, making many to repeat their sins to the point of increasing horrors in some cases. However, they revel in it, and because of this revelry they gain swelled heads. Believing themselves greater than others, especially those they victimize. However, this blackness is simply part of the descent into hell itself.

Then there are those that believe they are of the faith. Yet they live their lives as like the Pharisees as referenced earlier.

1 John 2:15-16 – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

They may profess to being “Christian,” but as long as they seek after the world. Its riches and all the things the world offers they have shown themselves not be a follower of God, but a follower of he who rules the temporal plain.

2 Corinthians 4:4 – Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

So, in fact they follow the behavior of the fourth beast.

Understand this though. There is nothing we can do to change any of this. All we can address is our own salvation. All we can do is to look about us and see the fulfillment of prophecies given in the Bible. However, we still should seek to bring others to the light. Yet most would rather reflect the beast:

2 Timothy 3:1-5 – You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

How many listens to this command? How many leave those buildings called “churches” that shelter and protect those that behave in the manners listed in this prophecy?

Yes, many churches have had a great falling away as of late, but how many still cling to a believe that they are special when they still seek after worldly wealth, comfort and luxuries?

It is time to repent.

It is time to return to the God of the universe and recommit yourself to the one who died in our place upon the cross. The one who suffered for our sins. Sins so great in many cases that being placed upon a cross after having our back scourged to the point that our ribs would be exposed, wouldn’t even be enough. Yet Christ bore this for you anyway.

If you believe in God, if you believe in Christ. End your sins. Repent and begin seeking after the true and eternal treasures. Seek after eternal life. Seek after your eternal rewards which are not of this world.

This is what those with earthly wealth are commanded to do:

1 Timothy 6:17-19 – Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. 18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, 19 storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Luke 14:25-33 – A large crowd was following Jesus. He turned around and said to them, 26 “If you want to be my disciple, you must, by comparison, hate everyone else—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. 27 And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple. 28 “But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? 29 Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you. 30 They would say, ‘There’s the person who started that building and couldn’t afford to finish it!’ 31 “Or what king would go to war against another king without first sitting down with his counselors to discuss whether his army of 10,000 could defeat the 20,000 soldiers marching against him? 32 And if he can’t, he will send a delegation to discuss terms of peace while the enemy is still far away. 33 So you cannot become my disciple without giving up everything you own.

Mark 10:17-30 – As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good. 19 But to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’” 20 “Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.” 21 Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!” 24 This amazed them. But Jesus said again, “Dear children, it is very hard to enter the Kingdom of God. 25 In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!” 26 The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked. 27 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” 28 Then Peter began to speak up. “We’ve given up everything to follow you,” he said. 29 “Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News, 30 will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life.

How many right this moment cannot give up their wealth and are right now through their actions of clinging to their earthly wealth are turning their back upon Christ and walking away from their Savior, rejecting their salvation if they had asked for it?

God Bless

Matthew 7:21-23 – “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

I have discussed these verses several times in my podcasts, but it appears I must do so again.

Millions of people at this very moment believe with all their hearts they are going to heaven. Millions believe they are going to stand before the Lord our God in white robes.

How many within this number will truly achieve this only God Himself knows.

However, we that know the Bible, have studied that Bible. Understand that we are in the last days before the soon return of Jesus Christ.

We know we have to try our best to help ALL that desire to be in white to truly be able to stand in these robes. This can only be accomplished by understanding the truth.

Too many live in this world and think they are one with God. In recent past podcasts I have shown these verses about the Pharisees:

Luke 16:14-17 – Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. 15 And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God. 16 “The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it. 17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.

Those that live in the world and seek after wealth and riches and possessions live in the world and of the world. They are the lukewarm.

They don’t want to hear this. They don’t want to accept this. They don’t want to live with the truth that they will have to stand before the Great White Throne, not in white robes, but as a defendant in the case against their own eternal life.

None can cast out demons unless they are of the Body of Christ.

Did you hear that!

NONE!

Get this through your heads. Salvation CAN be lost. I nearly lost it myself, so I have lived this truth.

Millions will be standing before the Great White Throne. When they are saying “Lord, Lord,” they will be saying it in bewilderment and anguish, because in their minds they had served God faithfully and completely as they built their wealth and lived in their earthly comforts. Doing that which is seen by God as an abomination, but they did it all the same, as they praised God and sang their hymns just as the Pharisees did before they crucified our Savior, the Son of God.

Jesus stated Himself that in the last days there would be many false teachers.

Matthew 24:4-5 – And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.  5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.

Peter said this:

2 Peter 2:1-19 – But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. 4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. 12 But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, 13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet. 17 These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. 18 For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

Look at what will be the main characteristics that will show those that are false teachers within the Christian ranks.

2 Peter 2:3 – And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Covetousness – G4124 – pleonexia – avarice, greediness, desire for advantage

Feigned – G4112 – plastos – artificial, fictitious, false, feigned, made up

Their goal will be to live in comfort and luxuries here upon this earth and they will do this by teaching a false gospel.

Galatians 1:6-10 – I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. 8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed. 10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

Within verse ten we hear what the key to this false teaching is:

Galatians 1:10 – For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

Any who teach messages that seek to make people feel good about themselves and the way they live is a false teacher. And as they do this their goal is not to bring people to salvation but to a place that will allow the one teaching to be wealthier and more comfortable where they live away from the buildings called “churches.”

If this requires them to cause people to seek after wealth and comfort here is this world, then that is the message they teach and as shown in these verses verifies what we were told to look for in false teachers. However, most, mainly because they do not even bother to read the Bible and would rather have their pains comforted instead of accepting them as discipline from God.

Revelation 3:19-22 – I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference. 20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. 21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.

Hebrews 12:6 – For the LORD disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”

Any who seek comfort here on earth seek to stand before God at the Great White Throne Judgement and not before Him in robes of white.

Yes, you heard me correctly. Any who seek after comfort or luxuries are in actuality denying Jesus Christ.

 Matthew 10:33 – But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.

Let’s breakdown that verse:

Matthew 10:33 – But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Before – G1715 – emprosthen – in front of, before.

Men – G444 – anthrópos – human being, mankind

And how does one deny Christ?

1 John 2:15-16 – Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

If what they seek is not from God and is of the world than it is clear they are in fact denying Christ. and so no matter what they may think, it is this reason that they are looked down upon, for even Jesus Christ Himself sees them as lower than those that live in open sin:

Revelation 3:15-18 – “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17 You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. 18 So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see.

This is a cycle that is obvious to all those that truly look at the event seen throughout history. Those that ignore their fellow humans over the pleasures and desires of their own lust, comforts and desires are in time revolted against and thrown into death and destruction.

Until that final day of wanton rebellion, which is now taking place across the world, which will cause the return of He who promised that He would. Upon that day those that believed with all their hearts that they themselves were His followers will find themselves still here upon this planet looking up into the sky in shock with horror as they find themselves still here upon this earth. Left here to face the next three and a half years of the first half of the Tribulation, if they then so decide to accept the truth and accept His punishment that they must face if they truly wish to stand before the Throne of God in robes of white.

God Bless
