Welcome Beloved in the Lord Jesus Christ. May this video richly bless you in your life and walk of faith in Him.

WE ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph.6:12).

"...Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you; when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon you. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior;... "(Isa.43:1-3).

"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because greater is He that is in you, then he that is in the world."(1John 4:4).

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."(John 14:27)

THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR
He is no myth (Gen.3:1; Mt.4:8-11). Powerful, deceptive, having great guile, most subtle, a tempter, a liar, a murderer, most beautiful, having the power of death and destruction under God, and can appear as an angel of light (2Cor.11:14) and fool the very elect if that were possible (Rom.5:12-14; 1Cor.5:5; 1Tim.3:6-7; Heb.2:14; 1Tim.4:1-3; Mt.13:25,28,41; Acts16:16,18; 2Th.2:9).

 His "I will" marks the introduction of sin into the universe (Isa.14:13). He can manifest through a human form by possession (Ezek.28:11-19; Isa.14:12-17).

He is the Christian's worst adversary and the god of this world and prince of the power of the air (Jn.12:31; 14:30; 16:11; 1Pet.5:8; Eph.2:2;6:12-20; Jas.4:7).

He can influence carnal and self-confident believers and take them at will, but cannot enter them yet may cause physical and other problems if God permits. He is the accuser of the brethren. Christ's blood keeps us clean (Job 1;1-22; Acts 5:3; 1Cor.5:5; 2Cor.11:3;12:7; 1Tim.1:20; 2Tim.2:26; Lk.22:31-32).

The Lord keeps us in faith (Lk.22:31-32; 1Jn.2:1).

The weapon of a believer is the whole armor of God (Eph.6:11).

 Satan, and his gang of fallen angels, called demons, can take full control of non-believers (Eph.2:2; Rev.13:8; Jn.8:44; Mt.8:28-29; 9:33;10:1; 12:43-45; Acts 8:7).

He rules the kingdoms of this world and is the power and mastermind behind the world systems (Eph.2:2; Mt.7:22-23; Jn.13:2; 2Cor.4:4; IJn.3:10; Jn.8:44).

 His presence weakens the nations (Isa.14:12-17) and, one day, he will be cast down from heaven by The Archangel Michael, and take control of the leader of the revived Roman Empire to face off with The Lord and His angels at the conclusion of the great tribulation (Isa.14:12-17; 66:15; Lk.10:18; Rev.12:7-12).

 He will be the final incarnation of the anti-christ. He will be bound for a 1000 years during the millennium after which he will be let go for a little while to cause an insurrection that will be ultimately defeated by The Word of God who is none other then Jesus Christ (Rev.20:2-3,7-10).

After this he will be cast into the lake of fire, his final doom. The notion he reigns in hell is NOT biblical. Those who reject Jesus will spend eternity with him! That is tragic! (Rev.20:10;11-15).

Ephesians 6:12 

 "12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Ephesians 2:2 

"2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:"

ISAIAH 14:12-17

"12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

 13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

 14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

 15Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

 16They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

 17That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?"

Principalities: Demons who have the oversight of nations.

Powers: The foot soldiers who have power over humans.

Colossians 2:15 

 "15And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it."

Rulers of Darkness: These have charge over Satan's worldly business.

Colossians 1:13 

 "13Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:"

Romans 13:12 

 "12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light."

Spiritual wickedness in high places: are those in the heavenlies who have charge over religions!

1 John 5:19

 "19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness."

 

1 Peter 5:8-9 

 "8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

 9Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE:

Ephesians 6:11-18 

 "11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

 18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;"

THE HEART THAT IS HARDENED
 
Beloved;
I write to all of you who represent the Lord Jesus Christ I have the blessing to have as my friends. I encourage you to share replies to messages and certainly want to promote fellowship among all of us for the benefit of the body of Christ.
 
Briefly, I believe the scriptures are clear that God has made unconditional promises to the Jewish people He will keep. Just as He has made salvation secure in Christ Jesus our Savior. Knowing this consistency of God as well as His unending love of His beloved church and Israel, scriptures unfold with correct meanings rather then the too often rejection of irrevocable promises God has made to each in His plan for the ages.
 
With regard to Israel, there is the heresy of "Replacement Theology" that permeates certain groups who name the name of Jesus as Lord. And regarding Christ's finished work of salvation for those who believe on Him, the heresy of loss of salvation for one reason or another troubles us and is taught by many on Youtube as well as churches. Both of these teachings are in error, or worse, heretical. And heresy is of the Devil.
 
I will be happy to discuss these subjects at length with anyone who cares to write me.
 
THE HARDNESS OF THE HEART: THE CONDITION OF THE LOST SOUL AND DEAD SPIRIT
 
The isolation of Israel and the growing anti-Semite spirit of Satan has as it's basis God's will to allow such a condition, and man's nature to have it's full day in God's time. This same principle of how God moves was seen in the Old Testament with the Pharaoh of Egypt when God sent Moses to take the Jew's out of their bondage in Egypt. A most telling example of the righteous judgments of the Almighty, allowing the hardness of the human heart to dictate the actions of the person, or nation, and in no way attributable to God causing such a PRE-EXISTING condition. JUDGMENT IS ALWAYS THE CONSEQUENCE OF SUCH UNBELIEF.
REJECTION OF GOD IS THE NATURE OF THE FALLEN MAN AND THE DEAD SPIRIT OF THE LOST. THEY ARE A SITTING DUCK FOR DEMONIC POSSESSION,AND CERTAINLY STRONG DEMONIC INFLUENCE!
 
Here in America we see the same condition as in the time when Moses asked the ruler of Egypt to "Let my people go". The great SIN of DENIAL that God is and that His Son is God the Savior of the world clearly set forth in the Word of God is the foundation for such suicidal conduct. And any nation that is ruled by such people who are lost will suffer great harm just as the Egyptians, Germans, Babylonians, Romans and countless others through the ages of mankind, have suffered their people to experience by their godless conduct.
 
God is no respecter of persons. Those in power are called and assigned by GOD for His purposes. They have choices. Believe that God is sovereign over all nations and that Jesus is Lord and Savior OR NOT! Believe that GOD will judge all nations for their unbelief or not. Believe that ISRAEL is GOD'S chosen NATION on earth or not. Believe that no power nor military might will save a nation in rebellion against GOD or not. Believe that true wisdom begins on ones knees before the ALMIGHTY in reverence and contriteness OR NOT. Believe that wisdom, good governance, and a true caring and love for the people one has authority over begins at God's House. Absent this belief judgment awaits.
 
On the near horizon, this (new! NO, Old) world order seeks to force Israel to rely on it's power and might. It seeks to dictate the division of the land GOD unconditionally gave her. This is suicide. And though the nation of Israel, still in unbelief, will eventually do business with this world order concerning it's security, not according to God's will, and though this is anathema to GOD because their security rests in His power, His might and promises, ISRAEL WILL SURVIVE.
But WOE to those nations who seek to divide her land. The assurances of "PEACE AND SAFETY" GOD REJECTS and has other plans for Israel as well as those who, in the shadows of their private chambers plot to have her do their bidding. The nations will rage against God one day in unison. God will laugh in scorn. Jesus Christ will be victorious. So it is written, so it will be!
 
GOD IS IN CONTROL AND WILL ALLOW MAN'S HARDENED HEART TO ACT OUT IT'S UNBELIEF ACCORDING TO GOD'S WILL.
 
Clearly, two roads appear before His church of the faithful:
The first is to bless Israel in prayer as emphasized in the truth of His word which beckons all peoples to come to His throne of Grace NOW, and continue to pray for our leaders that they should change their coarse of conduct, that if maintained, will lead to this nations horrendous judgments from God.
 
The other is the secular way that God will not bless: manifested in loud protests and engaging in political machinations and social causes such as we see looming in the "Democratic vs Republican" arena where each has no power to help the people they represent nor dictate to God, in their offices, but by prayer and contrition, help their constituents, by applying the wisdom of His Word to those they represent. This choice is unlikely. Our country has not been God fearing for some time now. Even catastrophic events have not turned it to Reverence and Contrition before God.
 
We will serve The Lord through it all. And extend in His love, the invitation to:
COME AND DRINK THE WATER'S OF LIFE ONLY JESUS IS SUPPLYING ...FREELY! THE GOSPEL OF THE SALVATION OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST TO ALL MANKIND.
 
Find a person who will take an oath of high office ON THEIR KNEES and you will have found a needle in a haystack.

SERMON ON THE PLAIN
Our Lord gave His teachings over and over. We ARE dull of hearing! Who hears Him without faith and the Holy Spirit opening the ear gate to a contrite and BROKEN heart?
 
AND WHO CAN KEEP HIS WORDS OF TRUTH WITHOUT THE FULLNESS OF THE SPIRIT IN THEM?
 
 
"We can create a modern international community...We do not  consider ourselves a Christian nation... We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values," said the President Of The United States." (Turkey, April 7, 2009)(Emphasis mine)
 
PERHAPS OUR  LEADERS WOULD LIKE TO USE THE FOLLOWING IDEALS AND SET OF VALUES FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE? 
 
IF  we speak about  REVIVAL IN OUR LIFE***   OR THIS COUNTRY OR ANY OTHER,***   FIRST READ THIS, ***  THEN GET DOWN AND PRAY GOD FORGIVES OUR SINS  BEFORE WE SEEK REVIVAL.
 
 REPENTANCE FIRST, THEN REVIVAL!
 
By the way, think twice before you applaud all the rich "Prophets, TEACHERS, Etc of THE WORD who are patronized by man.
 
 
  "Sermon On The Plain"  
 

Luke 6:17-49 (New King James Version)

The Beatitudes
"17 And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, 18 as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. 19 And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.
   
20 Then He lifted up His eyes toward His disciples, and said:


      “ Blessed are you poor,
For yours is the kingdom of God.

       21 Blessed are you who hunger now,
For you shall be filled.

      Blessed are you who weep now,
For you shall laugh.

       22 Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man’s sake.

       23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.
Jesus Pronounces Woes
    24  But woe to you who are rich,
For you have received your consolation. 

       25 Woe to you who are full,
For you shall hunger.

      Woe to you who laugh now,
For you shall mourn and weep.

       26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
For so did their fathers to the false prophets.
Love Your Enemies
   27 But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back.

31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.


32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Do Not Judge
   
37 Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.

39 And He spoke a parable to them: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch? 40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher. 41 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? 42 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.
A Tree Is Known by Its Fruit
   43 For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Build on the Rock
   46 But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? 47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

WE ARE A NATION OF THE FAITHFUL

1 Peter 2:9-25 (New King James Version)

"9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Living Before the World
   11 Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, 12 having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
Submission to Government
   13 Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, 14 or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— 16 as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. 17 Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
Submission to Masters
   18 Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh. 19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
       22 “ Who committed no sin,
      Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
[

 23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls."

 

 
THE TRIBULATION WAS NEVER MEANT FOR THE CHURCH!
 
 
Rev.12 and 13 provides the scriptures about who are in this end of time reality show.
 
Rev.12:1
 
THE WOMAN - ISRAEL!
 
The KEY to the interpretation of the Book of Revelation IS this woman! All events revolve around HER!
 

"1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."

The Roman church says "she" is the virgin Mary! Most Protestant interpreters say she is the church of all ages.

The identifying marks of the woman are the sun, the moon, and the stars. These belong to Israel!

Genesis 37:

9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

 10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?"

The women is a sign in heaven, though her career is on earth. It corresponds to Israel. It is Israel who gave birth to Christ, who is the child.

Isaiah 9:

 

 "6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Christ is the Prince of Peace. When the nations of this world will SOON say "Peace and safety is upon us", THEN...
 

1 Thessalonians 5:

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."

 
FURTHER SCRIPTURAL PROOF THE CHILD COMES FROM ISRAEL.
 

Hebrews 7

 "14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood."

Romans 9

4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertained the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen."

Micah 5

 "2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

 3 Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travailed hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel."

First Israel delivers a man child, Christ, then she brings forth a believing remnant! And she is born anew IN 1 DAY! By Christ's Intervention and God's unmerited "GRACE"!

Isaiah 66

 "7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, (Great Tribulation:A/K/A "Jacob's Trouble") she was delivered of a man child. (CHRIST)

 8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children." (the believing remnant; see  Rev.7 ).

It is our Lord's will that His bride, who is the true church, be comforted. (Titus 2:13-15; John 14:1-3). He will call us Home before the Great Tribulation (2 Thess. 2:1-12).

 THE CHURCH IN HEAVEN DURING THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION

Beloved, if you want to understand end time prophesy then this is your first realization. It is Israel who enters The Tribulation! God has to finish what He started with her long ago. She must become Righteous in Him as an entire Nation! This God will perform. This is His plan. This is part of the completion of His UNCONDITIONAL COVENANT with her forefather's.

THE CHURCH IN HEAVEN

We see the history of the seven churches in Chapters 2-3 of the Book of Revelation. Coming to Chap 4 we must ask yourself what has happened to the church? For the scene that we see in Verse 4 moves us to ask: Who are these 24 elders and how and when did they get into heaven in a GLORIFIED body?
 
Revelation 4

 "4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."

 
19 times the Church has been mentioned in Chapters 2 and 3 of the Book of Revelation! From Chapter 4 through the rest of the entire Book thereafter NOT ONCE is she mentioned again IN ANY OF THE EVENTS AND PROPHESIES  until an invitation is given by The Spirit and the bride (the church) to come (Rev.22:17-19).

Revelation 22

 "17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."

This has nothing to do with the chronology of the Church nor our presence in the Tribulation. It is a invitation by the Church for Christ to come and by The Spirit for sinners to come to Christ  which is our work through the Gospel of the Grace of God.
 
This IS the invitation today! If you are tired of drinking of the cesspools of the world, WE, in the power of The Spirit, invite the world TO COME TO HIM!...NOW, before it's too late.

Isaiah 55

 "1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."

John 7

 

 "37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink."

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHURCH AFTER CHAPTER 4?
 
She is with the Lord in Heaven!
 
The church is gone from the scene. She has been caught up, removed, raptured! The Greek word used in the original manuscripts of the Bible is "HARPOZO". When anyone TELLS YOU the word "Rapture" is NOT in the Bible, they don't know what their talking about! This Greek word is translated "Caught up, raptured, or snatched up". And this comes the instant we hear the mighty voice of the Lord, like a great TRUMPET, the same voice that pulled the Apostle John up as we read in Rev. 4:1:
 
1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."
 
John had a rapturous experience! Immediately, upon hearing the Trumpet like voice of Jesus, and faster then a eye blink!, he was in Heaven.
 

1 Corinthians 15

 "51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

What is this last trump? It is the last call from Christ, as a sound of a mighty trumpet, to mankind  calling the redeemed (Church) UP TO LIFE ETERNAL. A precurser of this was when He called Lazarus from the tomb: "Lazarus, come forth" John 14:43.

"And the dead shall be raised incorruptable, and we shall be changed"

For in order to ENTER Heaven we MUST be changed into incorruption!

1 Cor.15

"53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."

Beloved, THE CHURCH GOES INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD, NOT ISRAEL, NOR ANY OTHER HUMAN BEING IN THEIR OWN BODY! ONLY WE IN OUR GLORIFIED BODIES CAN BE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD! FOR GOOD REASON!!! FOR REVELATION CHAP 4 IS CLEAR AS A BELL! WE WILL BE IN HIS PRESENCE WITH CROWNS (Rewards TO THE CHURCH SAINTS for faithful service) THAT WE THROW AT HIS FEET IN PRAISE AND ADORATION.

But first, the great teaching of The Apostle Paul, that we can count on because our Lord KEEPS HIS WORD:

1 Corinthians 15

 "54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

We are the Church of Philadelphia, the Bible believing ones, who are mentioned in Rev.3. We exist alongside the Laodician church now, the apostate church which is gathering strength AS WE SPEAK. But we must leave for it to reach it's apex, in the clear plan of God for the ages. Just as our Lord had to leave to fulfill His High Priestly ministry He now does, and to OPEN the Seven Sealed Book that releases ALL GOD'S JUDGMENTS on the LOST world, so must we leave so that God can complete His plan and we, be wedded to the Lord above, His Glorious "Pearl of Great Price", His Bride, His Called Our Ones! Who will occupy a place He built for us, THE NEW JERUSALEM (The Golden City) IN THE SKY!

WRITE THE THINGS WHICH YOU HAVE SEEN...

Revelation 1

 

 "19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;"

At the inception of Revelation John is told by our Lord what to do. He is to write the things which are, and that which will be hereafter. What things that are? The things he saw. Then he is told to write of the things which shall be hereafter ("meta tauta" in the Greek).
 
Now we return to Chapter 4 of Rev.

Revelation 4

 "1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."

What things "HEREAFTER"?

After the church is GONE! Up to this point the church has been mentioned 19 times! But from this point forward NOT ONCE! IT IS NO LONGER ON EARTH AND NOT A PART OF ALL THE EVENTS THAT TAKE PLACE ON EARTH, CONTROLLED  BY THE LORD HIMSELF FROM HEAVEN!

John 17

 "16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world."

John 14

 "3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

Chapter 4 is a prelude from the things seen to the things that will be "hereafter"... after we are gone from the earth. Faith places us on a launching pad in a posture ready to meet the Lord in the air. Our transformation at His call, makes us a vehicle that rises up to the heavenlies and beyond to the very presence of Our Father who is in Heaven!

THE CHURCH IS NOW IN HEAVEN!

How did it get there?

1 Thessalonians 4

 "17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

WE WERE ("HARPOZO") CAUGHT UP, SNATCHED!, "RAPTURED"! AT THE CALL OF OUR LORD.

Next time as we continue this study of our presence with The Lord in Heaven, we will see the 24 Church *elders at the Throne Of God, and the Four Living Creatures. (* There are no others, not Hebrew Saints of Israel, nor those Gentile Saints of the Tribulation, in scripture, who have a glorified body, but the Church Saints at this time!)

 

THAT DAY HE CALLS VIDEO

~SING ALONG WITH SHANNON~

THAT DAY HE CALLS

Every time I see the sky,
I see The Lord, his brush, his eye.
Every time I feel the earth I sense The Lord,
He stands beside.

The sea and mountains, oceans rage,
A sun and moon in flight,
The hand of God, in truth I say,
The grace of Him abides.

Everyday In streets of scorn, in children's cry,
The in between of live and die,
In comfort pure, eternal life,
It is he who'll end the fight.
In nations born, in pilgrims flight,
I see His hand, Almighty might.

There's a day that is a coming...
The Lord Jesus told us so
He'll be calling from the heavens
In the truth like horns that blow,
And no matter if were living,
No matter if we sleep,
It's a moment to remember...
That the Lord He's gonna keep!

(Spoken)
Why is it that we come and go?
We mourn, we cry, forget and sigh?
In war and peace we fail the test,
For God is truth, our joy, our rest

And mortal now, one day we'll shout,
"Praise the Lord" the day we rise!"

There's a day that is a coming,
The Lord Jesus told us so.
He'll be calling from the heavens,
In the truth like horns that blow
And no matter if were living,
No matter if we sleep...
It's a moment to remember,
That the Lord He's gonna keep!

And no matter if were living,
No matter if we sleep,
It's a moment to remember,
That the Lord,
He's gonna keep...

A DOOR IS OPENED

Let's take a look at where we will be when we arrive up yonder with the Lord.
 
Revelation 4

 "1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."

"After these things"(Meta tauta). What things? AFTER THE CHURCH IS REMOVED FROM THE EARTH!

"I looked, and behold, a door was opened in Heaven. Notice that this DOOR is most important! Four times in the Book of Revelation our Lord speaks of a "door" opened:

In Chapter 3, verse 8, speaking to the church in Philadelphia, the Lord says:

Revelation 3

 "8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name."

Here our Lord is reminding us that He has opened a great door to us of giving out the Gospel! What great blessings we can earn by His generosity in giving us God The Holy Spirit upon belief and through His power and wisdom, the greatest love letter ever written to this world or any other: "And God so loved the world that He gave... John 3:16.

No man can shut it! Are some of you still walking the fence of indecisiveness? Are you hedging your bets, so to speak? Or have you entered into the vault of the greatest riches in this universe: The Gospel of The Grace Of God Through Belief on The Lord Jesus Christ! Capitalism pail in comparison!  Russian ("Democratic") Communism and it's great worldly wealth as well as the riches of the Roman Church cannot hold a candle to your potential riches. A riches that lasts forever. A Lord who promises to care for you daily while you remain on Earth! A Heavenly Father who has you in His mighty hand as you walk by FAITH.

No man can shut this door. Only God calling us Home can close out His Glory we serve till our breath runs out. We are unstoppable! Invincible. Untouchable. Unchanging in our ministry as Priests and Saints, THE ARMY OF THE LORD, led by His Word applied by The Holy Spirit within us! What JOY! What power! What FREEDOM!!

Are we keeping His word? FIRST LET US LEARN IT'S DEAPTH AND BREATH! Not squander our time here in pursuits that WILL BURN UP AS WE LEAVE UPON HIS CALL! Nothing goes up BUT faithful works seen through TO THE END!

Our time here is most valuable. How are we spending the LIFE God gave us from above? WE STILL HAVE SOME STRENGTH! KEEP HIS WORDS. NEVER DENY HIM OPENLY OR BY CONDUCT UNBECOMING A SAINT! And if we do, we have an advocate above, Jesus Christ the Righteous One to plead His blood as our High Priest as we confess our sins to OUR FATHER THROUGH HIM.

Then there is the "Open Door" in Chapter 3: 20:

Revelation 3

"20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

This is the open door of invitation and identification with Christ. This door is the door to every sinners heart! The handle is inside only. The Lord cannot force His way in, NOR can you force your way into a heart that rejects Him outright such as many have tried to do to NO avail.

We are not without radar! The Holy Spirit will coach you for the ministry OR against it JUST AS HE DID WITH St. Paul for instance! And though the gates of hell cannot withstand His truth, the lost man, in FREE WILL can,  until death do us part!

We have an open door here!

Revelation 4

 "1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter." (This door is always open).

There is only one way to Heaven for this world and it is through Christ. We, His Church now, Bride to be later, will walk through it in a Glorified body one day. Today we have a sure HOPE who is Jesus Christ the Faithful and our Lord will not let us down.

John 14

 "6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

John 10

 "9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."

Then the Final door of Revelation 19:11-12

Revelation 19

"11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself."

Here is the open door through which Christ will go through AT HIS SECOND COMING. He comes out at the end of The Great Tribulation to put down all the unrighteousness and rebellion against God and to estabish His Millenial Kingdom on Earth.

We enter His door by Faith! John DID! He saw! He heard! The TRUMPETS VOICE OF JESUS! A Trumpet DOES NOT SPEAK! But Our Lord's voice speaks and it is like unto a TRUMPET!

Now John is getting close to the Throne! He is being given a birds eye view of it!  And he tells us that we will too! After we are removed from this earth, and come before His throne.

Revelation 4

 "2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne."

The Rapture will take place in the wink of an eye. That is the speed which John was transported to Heaven to come before THE THRONE OF GOD! The wonders commence! The Holy Spirit begins this demonstration of what WE can look forward to one FINE day!

John 16

 "13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."

John is now in the presence of God's Throne! It represents the universal soveignity and rule of God. He IS in control!

Psalm 11

 "4 The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men."

Psalm 47

 "8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness."

Ezekiel 1

 "26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

 27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake."

Psalm 97

 "2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne."

Psalm 103

 "19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all."

It is the Throne of God the Father, and our Lord sits at His right hand.

Psalm 110

 "1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool."

Hebrews 1

"3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:"

Hebrews 12

"2 Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

This throne of grace is about to become a throne of judgment! This is another reason we can say that the church is NOT in the world at that time. For when Christ leaves His place there He leaves for the terrible judgments HE WILL RELEASE AND DIRECT upon the Earth!  He leaves His intercessary MINISTRY FOR US NOW!!! and goes into judgment! Thus WE MUST NOT BE ON EARTH THEN, FOR WE ARE NOT TO BE JUDGED NOR  ARE WE APPOINTED TO WRATH! OUR HIGH PRIEST WILL NOT ABANDON US TO SINS!! OURS!!! HE WILL PERFECT US FIRST AT THE RAPTURE!

Believers living in this Age are not exempt from times of trouble and distress and intense pressure and persecution. Believers are appointed unto tribulations but believers are not appointed unto wrath :

(John 16:33) " In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

 (Acts 14:22) "Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God."

 (Rom. 5:3) "And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;"

 (1 Thess. 1:6) "And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction [tribulation], with joy of the Holy Ghost."

However, there is a specific time of trouble which Church Age believers are exempt from:

 "Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Rev.3:10).

"WRATH" referring to a specific time when God will pour out His wrath upon the earth). Believers must pass through the fires of affliction, but we will not pass through the specific fires of affliction that are reserved for Daniel's 70th week. The latter half being called the time of "Jacob's Trouble" specifically in God's plan for Israel! (Dan. 12:1-3).

Daniel 12

 "1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

 3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever."

Notice once again Israel is the focus. Michael is the archangel assinged to oversee Israel's preservation. The resurrection of Old Testament saints is seen here. The judgment on the unbelieving Israelites is harsh. The reward of the faithful Jews glorious at the Lord's return. THERE IS NO CHURCH. THERE IS A BRIDE IN HEAVEN COMING BACK TO EARTH WITH HER BELOVED! THAT IS ALL!!!!

Beloved, it's about time we understand the truth of prophesy and flee the false prophets who have MADE MERCHANDISE OF MANY!!!!

 

LETTER TO A BROTHER IN THE FLESH

I am a Jew who lost my entire blood family to the Devil who hates my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 28 years ago, after practicing Law in NYC for 12 years, I set aside the law books, which had provided me with a good living as well as a reputation around the world, and a place of honor among the society people in the "Big Apple", and began my journey OUT OF THIS WORLD TO GOD'S SACRED PLACE ABOVE ALL THE HEAVENS AND BEYOND THE GALAXIES.

By heeding God's call I no longer had that which in my body I had accomplished, and was sent across the country where NO ONE knew me, to California, to study the bible and eventually be sent to duty, on His behalf, to the streets of this beautiful state as a nobody whose name no longer rang a bell at private clubs on the East side of Manhattan, nor in courtrooms of expensive justice in the presence of judges who had as one of their favorite Law Books one I had written!

In fact, I did not have one friend from my 38 years I grew up in Brooklyn and lived in the City as a lawyer. No family, no friends, no connections, no name anybody knew. After I studied the bible and was taught by God The Spirit in me, I was sent to the streets to live and minister to the "Homeless" of whom I was one. And on the streets, the cold and impersonal streets, I ministered to the crippled, the druggies, the bag ladies, the rejects of society of whom I was now chief.

This continued for 6 years. I became a champion dumpster diver and fed 80 plus homeless a day in LA. Food I ate having 0 $ to buy anything. I sang to the bag ladies and the men, and walked the dirty street's and alleys, a bag over my arm, my bible and tooth brush, a pad and pen, a razor and wash cloth, and did my morning cleanup in bathrooms of coffee shops and outside faucets of homes, all the while never having TV, nor phone privileges, bank account, income, even public relief which the other homeless applied for and received.

I have traveled to the heights of my God's majesty, to a Golden City in the far distant sky, and been personally trained by God The Son, through The Holy Spirit, loved, cared for, and promised riches in glory that exceeds my wildest imagination. Indeed, right now I am one of the richest people on earth, having received FREE eternal life in Christ Jesus my Lord and Savior, and been forgiven ALL my sins because of what He did for me one day, 2000 years ago!

I wanted you to hear this from me, someone you now know a little. Another man has visited you and wrote me this AM. He asked me to contact you which I am now doing at his request. I want to leave you this morning with this last thought:

If you are destined, by God, to become one of His son's and receive eternal life and the best boss and job you have ever had or could have, then my visit to you from a place far beyond the galaxies, and God who is above all heavens and all creations, will produce in your life a great awakening. And you too will never be the same because God will take you by the hand and bring you too out of the lies and deceptions, the disappointments and delusions of the world you now live in and teach you from His word, never ending and truth, what He taught me. And with this inside you, you will be Born Again from Spirit and truth who is Jesus Christ soon to come.

Your brother in the flesh,
Chaim

HE IS PREPARING US FOR ETERNITY

This is our time to get ready. Can you imagine? Look what the future holds! According to the measure of our faith, as GOD already knows, we will be at Jesus side for ever to serve Him in His glorious perfect love. We will be like Him and He will give us a new name like one we never dreamed, according to His riches in Glory, and our love for Him in what we do through the faith we act in now.

LORD WE VOW TO FOLLOW YOU ALL THE WAY TO HEAVEN AND BEYOND THE STARS. FILL US WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT SO WE CAN SERVE YOU HERE WITH THE BREATH OF LIFE YOU GIVE US.

Your faithful work at home AND abroad on the internet is important and weighty with our Lord. There are no degrees. Just crowns. One soul saved in His Book gains a crown. 10,000 not more! You, I, we work for His Glory as you know. Your life in Him will bare much fruit!


TAKE TIME TO READ (ALL SCRIPTURES HERE IN THIS ESSAY!!!)
"...For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" Mt 6:19-21


We who love our Lord wait with the sure hope of His coming for us in fulfillment of His promise in Jn.14:1-3:
"I will come again and receive you unto myself so that where I am there you also will be".

Furthermore in Jn.16:22 he said "I will see you again and your heart shall rejoice".

This is our greatest joy to be with Jesus Christ forever. We want to please Him NOW for this life is the foundation of our eternity with Him. And when we come before Him at His judgment seat (See 2Cor.5:10), right after the rapture and before the start of His 1000 year rule on the earth, we want to be full of works of faith that will be recorded on our page in the "Book of Life".

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he/she has done,whether it be good or bad" (2Cor.5:10).

RAPTURE AND REWARDS

It is at this time, see 2Tim.4:8, we receive our rewards. At the rapture. If we love Him we will serve Him and in so doing earn rewards that will be ours forever. And the standards will be simple:
(1)Our present life of faith (1Cor.4:3-5).
(2)Our conduct towards believers (Rom.14:10).
(3)Our service through the love of Christ (1Cor.3:11-15).

So lets run the race of faith, to the very end without falling back, without thought of gain, with the joy, peace and love we have inside us. And when we see Him we will not hear bad news that we lost our rewards(See Rev.3:11) but will hear The Lord say"Well done my good and faithful servant".

SEE HEBREWS, CHAPTER 11, FOR A REVIEW OF FAITHFUL PEOPLE OF SCRIPTURE AND THEIR WORKS.
WILL YOU HAVE A GOOD BALANCE SHEET WHEN YOU GET HOME?

THE CROWN OF GLORY (PLEASE TAKE TIME TO SEARCH SCRIPTURES!)
1Pet.5:3-4; Heb.6:10; Mk.9:41; Jer.31:16
AN INCORRUPTIBLE CROWN
1Cor.9:25
A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
2Tim.4:8
A CROWN OF REJOICING
1Thess.2:19
A CROWN OF LIFE
Rev.2:10; Jas.1:12

The essence of faith consists in believing and receiving what God has revealed.The gospel is God's message of salvation. It may be defined as that trust in the God of the scriptures and in Jesus Christ whom He has sent, which receives Him as Lord and Savior and impels to loving obedience and good works (Jn.1:12; Jas.2:14-2).

DON"T STOP BECAUSE OF SIN!!!(IF THAT EVER IS THE CASE)
FORGIVE YOURSELF.
HE FORGAVE YOU ALL OF THEM!
GET ON WITH THE WORK. RESTORE FELLOWSHIP AS IN 1 John 1:9.

We are victorious through Christ. That we fail in conduct becoming of a saint is why one of the ministries of The Holy Spirit is to intervene on our behalf with God and by Christ's blood we are always kept clean. There is no one who will not need that blood in their "born again" lifetime. But it is worthy of all of us to come clean with our Father and confess our sins to restore our fellowship and allow His Spirit to work through us. We are victors and will never fail if we rely on Jesus. (1 John1:8-10; 2:1-2) SEE ALSO (Rom.8:37; Luke10:19; 1Samuel 17:47; 1Jn.5:4,18; Rev.12:11; Prov.21:31).

GOD MEASURES WEALTH BY FAITHFUL WORKS AND REWARDS US ACCORDINGLY. FAITH PRODUCES WORKS. TO LABOR FOR GOD'S GLORY IS THE BEST JOB WE CAN HAVE HERE ON EARTH. WE DO IT WISELY WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS IN OUR HEARTS. SEE AGAIN MATTHEW 6:19-21

THE KEY TO HEAVEN ON EARTH AND BEYOND

The just shall live by faith.This declaration of the Christian's principle of life is found four times in the bible.(Hab. 2:1-5; Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:10; Heb. 10:38 )In Habakkuk we see the difference between the lives of the unjust and the just.The unjust are puffed up and live by their own self sufficiency.

But the just live by faith-their confidence is in God. To them faith is more than a philosophy of life. The righteous shall live his whole life by faith.

He is saved by faith, kept by faith, and he lives by faith. His faith shall be tried many times and in many ways but faith will always be vindicated, because it is more than equal to any occasion. Faith knows how to wait on the Lord and it is always victorious.

Faith defies reason: it moves mountains (Mt. 17:14-21). Faith does not always face facts (Heb. 11:32-39).
Faith says, God is working out His perfect will in my life, and I can wait, endure and suffer.

Faith does not make anything easy, but it does make all things possible. (Heb. 11:1).

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for. Your faith is your title deed to eternal life. Just as a title deed is evidence of real estate, so your faith is your evidence of your eternal estate in God (Heb. 11:6).

Faith is taking God at His word.

Faith does not believe that all things are good, or that all things work well. It does believe that all things work together for good to them that love God (Rom. 8:28).

Above all, taking the shield of faith (Eph. 6:16).

Faith is important because it honors God, and God always honors faith


You cannot be saved without faith John 3:36
You cannot live victoriously over the world without faith 1 John 5:4
You cannot please God without faith Heb. 11:6
You cannot pray without faith James 1:6
You cannot have peace with God without faith Rom. 5:1
You cannot have joy without faith 1 Pet. 1:8
You are justified by faith and not works Gal. 2:16
You are to live by faith Gal. 2:20
You are made righteous by faith Rom. 10:1-4
Christ dwells in your heart by faith Eph. 3:17
The Holy spirit is received by faith Gal. 3:2
Whatsoever is not of faith is sin Rom. 14:23

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
Jesus was full of the Holy Spirit. He was sinless! He was not born with a dead nature, soul and spirit. YET HE TOO NEEDED TO RETREAT.

Amazing how He tasted all the sufferings and living deaths around Him, His brethren in the flesh mocking Him and abandoning Him (Except for the 11) while one was a devil in disguise He knew all the while! His family, but for His mother, rejecting Him until He rose from the dead and on and on we could go. A man of constant sorrows and well acquainted with grief.

Here we are in Him. Like Him we taste so much poison and suffer so much disappointments, so much grief, but not nearly the portion GOD our Father had to place on Him that He so readily took upon himself as a terrible yoke to give us LIFE...His life!

We understand these truths well but not well enough. For we, unlike Him, have a dead nature to carry around like a bag of heavy cement, but for God's grace would sink us like a stone in the tears of our own sorrows.

He retreated! He needed to restore a tired and worn body, even though the burden of sin was not upon Him until the cross. And then it was the burden only God the Son could take.

My dear brother, I have not one doubt that you are not finished nor that the best is yet to come for His Glory through you. For it will. In your weakness, uncomfortable as it is, even crippling as it could be, His strength can be perfect. His grace becomes more brilliantly displayed. His love the more penetratingly vivid.

Paul had this trouble. Some great disability God allowed. Indeed, sent as a messenger of Satan to buffet him! As we know Paul was a mighty teacher of the law. A well developed dead man walking. God had to cripple Him so that His design, yes! I say His design for Paul would become the lived reality of his life!

How great is our God. He chose us before the world was made...to be His. He birthed us to be destined for Him as one of His elect, He called us in due time, and we responded accordingly of Free Will. Now we are His forever. Nothing will change that.

Retreat! We are in a horrific contest! The stakes are as great as can be on earth. We are to love each other in His love. Preach The Gospel of Salvation by Grace through Christ alone for the remission of all sins...ALL. Support the enemy in their death and love them as well because we know the lostness of their souls that they admire and hold in highest esteem.

Strengthen the body that is His ambassador of love. His temple of worship. His vessel to honor and great glory for His names sake.
The enemy does not sleep. He does not need to eat or drink. He walks around constantly seeking whom he may devour and take to hell where all are equally miserable forever in the Lake of Fire.

You are in a terrific contest with an unseen adversary. You have the ultimate victory in Christ BUT you need to offer up to your Lord and my Lord, for we are ONE in Him, the best offering we can. And that means a body that is in as good a frame as He allows, rested, full of His armor, and The filling of the Holy Spirit, without unconfessed sin, awake and alert...ready.

This is not news to you, my dear brother. I am merely a sounding board echoing back at you His wisdom in you as a reminder of that which you know. Forgive my verbosity at times. I love you in the Lord and you are my brother in eternity. Then we will never have a weakness, nor falter, from the legacy of our dear father of the flesh, Adam. We will be glorified in and like Him.Jesus Christ forever. Oh,happy day!

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE


It is to His glory and our riches and eternal life He has brought us together here as Family in The Faith. Glory to Him.

IN HIM, WE ARE THE LIGHT IN THE WORLD. LET IT SHINE!

THE MAN IN THE GLORY
"He shines like a billion suns ablaze
No nighttime in his countenance to see
A more than brilliant face has he.
His clothing is luminescent pure
His hair on fire golden white
And angels minister to him in flight.
He is the Savior of all the world
A plan his Father saw fit to unveil
And intercedes by our days and nights
So the death of sin cannot have might.
His chamber high above the earth
The blood of his an eternal worth
Set out before the alter pure
God the Father forgives for sure.
He is our High Priest
Keeping those of us he owns.
In Christ there is only victory
And we the victors just through him".
(1 John 1:8-10)

"O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea..."

HEBREWS 10:19-25
Brethren, once again in living grace through belief in Christ Jesus our Lord And Savior, I salute you in your tribulations which are but a brief time, assured of eternal victory in Him who has called you from your mother's womb (Jude 1,3).

Salvation is Christ and everything we do in His Spirit is worthy of us to His glory. Our dead self has been buried with Him. He lives to make intercession for us daily. For what purpose? So we can live our life from above, the one Christ secured for us, from God our Father . What we received is ineradicable for it rests on Christ's finished work and nothing we can do will change that blessing (Jn.Chap. 17).
"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."( Jn. 17:3)

Today we are in a time of lukewarm Christianity and apostasy. The Lord warned us by command in Jn.21:22 to follow him. When we are quenching The Holy Spirit we are good for nothing to God and wasting our precious time on earth. We are called upon to serve The Lord with all our strength and mind and being. Be courageous and bold. Once you believed and received Him by The Spirit, it was for all time. Move out into the battle with your whole armor of God to overcome that wicked one, Satan who is the architect of the death the world suffers. (Eph.6:12-17).

Is there a nation on this God created earth that has had greater worldly blessings than America? God is her Father. It was God who blessed her beginnings. Jesus was in the hearts of the leaders who set sail for her shores. He was in their homes that were dedicated to the glory of Almighty God. In simple church meetings where the people were the truth of the cross of Christ, they kept a place in their hearts for Jesus, through The Holy Spirit, who rode the seas with them to this God blessed land. And it was for His Glory. The righteousness of God was with them (Prov.14:34).

They left a king to honor The King of all nations (Jer.10:7) and affirmed their God given right to worship and serve The Lord (Zech.8:22). He was their inner strength and hope. And they knew that God's word was true. It guided them to their victory in the freedom to worship and make Him the God of this great land. In so doing they received the blessings promised in scripture (Ps.33:12).

Wisdom is to know The Lord and to fear Him by the example of reverential trust and disdain of evil starting with ones self (Ps.19:9; 2 Tim.3:15). Our forefather's knew that there was a better place God had prepared, eternal in the heavens, and that the life they lived on earth would be to the benefit of this new nation as well as their own in God's Book of Life (Isa.26:2; 49:6; Ps.2:12; Rev.3:5).

Yet the spirit of anti-christ, is strong on the closing pages of gentile world history. It is like a huge cancer that will be overcome by Christ at the beginning of a 1000 years of His reign on earth. He will rule the world in glory. And even then, at the close of His rule, mankind will once again seek it's own self-glory in rebellion against Christ when Satan is let loose for a brief while. But as GOD has proclaimed from eternity past, at the end of time, before creation steps into eternity, every knee shall bow before Him and every voice shall proclaim that "Jesus Christ is Lord" (Mt.24:29-30; Rev.19:11-21; 20:4-6; 20:7-9; Zech.14:1-9) .

Today, in 2008, America is at a crossroads in history. Will she respond to the call of her Holy and Righteous God who is all powerful and merciful? Will she stand up for the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and heed His word of truth that echoes down the corridors of time:
"...Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts" (Zech.4:6).

It's not news that mankind has always tried to make itself bigger and better then it is. That's the way we are born, dead to God and eventually needing to puff our "self" up. (Gen.4:16-24; Rom.1.18-23).

The scripture is clear what happens to those who pit themselves against Almighty God (Gen.6:5-7; Nah.2:14; Ex.12:29-30; Rev.18;19:17-21).

Those who reject Jesus are being what is natural to them. Some think worldly position and "get,get,get" will do it. Other's eating right or the worship of hand picked gods. Still other's the right partner, job, drugs, re-incarnations, intellect or entertainment will. Satan concocted a billion scams to deceive the lost spirit and soul of man. In the end of his rule on earth multitudes will worship him in the form of a false christ without recourse to the true God ever again. They will have to pay their final bill with others from before. (Rev.13:16; 14:9-11; 21:11-15).

The lost world loves itself. It cannot perceive The Spirit and the truth of Christ. Read a book like "I'm O.K your O.K" that some snake salesman put out years ago to keep us in the grave. Just look around you and see all the important people on the T.V shows and the "news" that glorifies everything under the son except The Son of Almighty GOD. Look out your window at the stars on the street. The real news is that there's nothing new under the sun. Man needs God. God says "come". Love came from God, in the form of His Son and everything he accomplished for us. It rests within a believer by His power and authority. It is God The Holy Spirit (Jn.15:12-14).

The world and the flesh are a well dressed up graveyard. It is already judged. All roads do not lead to heaven, only the one name that saves who is Jesus Christ (Jn.3:16).

The big shots have countless followers who fill their pockets with millions and more. They make sure to mention God and, as if they have some eternal connection, appear so sanctified. They come in all forms and walks of life including the clergy. Often proud and self-assured they strut and fret their hour upon the stage as greatly blessed of God. Why don't they give their wealth to the poor as Jesus suggested and follow him? (Lk.18:18-27).JESUS WAS MEEK & LOWLY * DESPISED OF MEN (See Isaiah 53)

Who is America today? Does she still have THE LORD at her side? Is she that sure hope of the downtrodden and destitute, of the widows and the children, the poor and needy, the elderly and infirm who gave their lives for her promise of equality under God? Is she a beacon of God's light to the world? Is she listening to their plight and remembering that she is her brother's keeper (Gen.4:8)? And if she is true to the Spirit of scripture will she respond to God properly in Ezekiel 3:18-21? Can she be strong in the Lord and respond to her enemies scorn by answering the words of that great leader of Israel who brought his people into the promised land: "...choose this day whom you will serve..."(Josh.24:15).

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!
WE MUST AND WILL SERVE THE LORD AND GOD WILL BLESS AMERICA UNTIL WE LEAVE AND THEN THE DARKNESS OF EVIL WILL PREVAIL.

You are in my prayers. Keep me in yours. Maranatha.
Chaim

THE GREAT FELLOWSHIP BLESSINGS WE NEED NOW



"...For where two or more are gathered together in my name there am I in the midst of them."(Mt.18:20)
 

Jesus is our first love. He loved us before we were in our mother's womb. He gave Himself for us so that we will live forevermore in glory with the family of Christ in the presence of God. He gave us life here, His life, through His Spirit, who will never leave us, no never!

HE KEEPS US CLEAN BY HIS BLOOD DAILY. OUR SALVATION IS SECURE IN HIM AND OUR FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD BY OUR PRAYERS AND CONFESSIONS IN JESUS NAME

 
How is our life? Are we seeking to live it through the blessings of Christ or in the "I" of self?

Simply stated who is the motivating force behind your life's walk? Who do you love? Who do you serve? Who gets the glory?

As Jesus expressed to His Father:"Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven"; that is, grant that we and all men may renounce our own will, (a) and without murmuring obey thy will, which is only good; (b) that every one may attend to, and perform the duties of his station and calling, (c) as willingly and faithfully as the angels do in heaven. (d)

(a) Matt.16:24 "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."

"For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it"(Lk.9:24-26).

Tit.2:11 "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men"

Tit.2:12 "Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world"

(b) Luke 22:42 "Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done."

Eph.5:10 "Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord".

Rom.12:2 "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

(c) 1 Cor.7:24 "Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God".

(d)Ps.103:20 "Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word".

Ps.103:21 "Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure".

BE RICH IN JESUS HERE AND FOREVERMORE. (1Thess.2:19-20; 1Pet.5:4; 2Tim.4:8; Rev.3:11;Rev.22:12)

May The Lord bless your life.
 

Jesus is talking to me and you! Do you love him? Has he saved you? And did you know he pleads his precious blood for your sins daily? That's how you retain fellowship with God The Father and His Son. That's how The Holy Spirit can work thru you and give you fillings for service.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS COME CLEAN WITH OUR FATHER. WE GO DIRECTLY TO GOD THRU CHRIST! How blessed we are that Jesus keeps us clean daily! Lord, give us the strength to obey your truth.

The Lord said that He is the way, the truth and the life. No man can come to The Father but by Him. He is the resurrection and the life. He is eternal life. What a Lord we have in Jesus!

Can we be saved and lose it? No! But we can be miserable. Paul had that experience.

HE CONFESSED HE WAS MISERABLE UNTIL HE RECEIVED THE POWER OF GOD BY THE INDWELLING HOLY SPIRIT. HE COULD NOT LIVE HIS NEW LIFE WITHOUT IT.

And we too can live as not saved though saved we are. Still birth! Having received the Holy Spirit we walk in our dead nature. (1Cor.3:1-8).

There is a mighty Savior who gave us ETERNAL LIFE. We who believe on Him can never lose that greatest blessing. Christ guarantees it.

But if we live lost (according to our old dead nature) we lose our walk of faith which is ever a closer walk with Him, according to His Word, which is Truth.

If we follow Him and His word we will first gain the life God Almighty has ordained for us in Christ.

This is how The Holy Spirit works.
He brings us the experience of "SALVATION", in us, through us, and into the world. And "salvation", in all it's manifestations, is what Jesus gives us! Make no mistake: it's beyond this world, yet abides daily.


SALVATION: WHAT CHRIST HAS GIVEN US


Deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, soundness.

"Salvation" is the great inclusive word of the Gospel consisting of: justification, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, sanctification, and glorification. Salvation is in three tenses:

(1) The Christian has been saved eternally from the guilt and penalty of sin (Lk.7:50; 1 Cor.1:18; 2 Cor.2:15: Eph.2:5,8; 2 Tim.1:9) and is safe.

(2) The Christian is being saved from the habit and dominion of sin daily (Rom.6:14; 8:2; 2 Cor.3:18; Gal.2:19-20; Phil.1:19; 2:12-13; 2 Thess.2:13).

(3) The Christian will be saved at the Lord's return from all bodily infirmities that are the result of sin and God's curse upon the sinful world, even from death itself. (Rom.8:18-23; 1 Cor.15:42-44;).
We will be brought into entire conformity to Christ, transformed into His glory (Rom.13:11; Heb.10:36; 1 Pet.1:5; 1 Jn.3:2).

SALVATION IS BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, IS A FREE GIFT AND WHOLLY WITHOUT MANS WORKS OR LAW AND IS GUARANTEED BY GOD FOREVER (Rom.3:27-28; 4:1-8; 6:2-3;Eph.2:8).

The divine order is: first salvation thru faith, then works (Eph.2:9-10; Jas.2:18; Ti.3:5-8).
"New Scofield Reference Bible" Pg.1211.

WHAT IS FELLOWSHIP IN THE CHURCH

LOVE (Jn.13:34) LONG-SUFFERING (Eph.4:2) Help (Gal.6:2) COMFORT (1Thess.5:11) ONENESS (1Cor.12:26)

"Then those who gladly received His Word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers" (Acts 2:40-42).

"If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin"(1John 1:6-7).

"...that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full"(1John 1:3-4).

Only by His Loving Spirit in us can we fellowship with one another. We cannot delight in God together, nor worship Him, unless our eyes have been opened and understanding given us through the Spirit.

"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you... for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now" (Phil 1:3).

"...if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others" (Phil 2:1).

"I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God."

"However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."

"But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.... Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. ... But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" (1Cor 2:1-14).
"...when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles..." (Gal. 2:9).

Encourage one another in His Word

"...Christ is all and in all. Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
"But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him" (Col.3:11-17)(Emphasis added).

"Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others" (Phil. 2:1-4).

Share with one another
"For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God" (2Cor.8:2-5).

"Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress" (Phil.4:14).

Love and pray for one another.

"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ"
(Phil.1:3-11).

"I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you...." (See Phile.4-7).

Fellowship is with those who believe (Reaching out to unbelievers is evangelism, not fellowship).

"Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds" (2John 9-11).

"...the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons"(1 Cor.10:19-21)

Separation, not unity, from those who refuse to obey Him
"Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: 'I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.' Therefore 'Come out from among them and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you,and will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty"(2Cor.6:14-18).

"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen" (2 Cor.13:14).

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND YOU

"He shall glorify me;..." John 16:14
THE SPIRIT AND LOVE OF JESUS
The Holy Spirit will help you understand the bible and the words of GOD to you. But you need to take it most seriously and apply yourself. It is the greatest gift you will ever get besides Jesus Christ. GLORY TO GOD. HE loves us so much and will make sure our life is in HIS hands.

THE SPIRIT HAS THE ACTIONS OF A PERSON
He Speaks:
He clearly communicates with Believers. If there is communication, then many other things are indicated: will, ability, intelligence, etc.
2 Samuel 23:2: ...The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me....
Acts 8:29: ...Then the Spirit said....
Revelation 2:7: ...the Spirit says....

He Prays******:
Paul tells us that when we don't know how to pray that the Spirit Himself makes intercession on our behalf (Romans 8:26). This indicates that the Holy Spirit knows our minds, and has the ability to communicate with GOD THE FATHER for us. Neither of these are abilities a power or force might have.
He Guides******:
One of the ministries that He has with the Christian is guidance, be it guidance in our study of the Word, or guidance in finding Elohim's will. Romans 8:14: ...For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
He calls and commissions******:
"He Commands*******:
He commanded Phillip to go to the Eunuch at Acts 8:29. This requires planning and authority. Phillip was submitting to the plan of the Spirit for his life.
He Dwells In Believers******:
Only a being with personality can dwell with another being. John 14:17 mentions, in relationship to the Spirit, ...and shall be in you.
He Teaches******:
A teacher is not devoid of personality.The Holy Spirit has the ability to teach which indicates many of the things that we have mentioned. Will, intelligence and the ability to communicate are all qualities of personality. John 14:26
Likewise*******:
He Reproves: John 16:8
He Sends: Acts 13:4
He Forbids Some Actions: Acts 16:6,7
He Empowers: Acts 1:8, 2 Peter 1:21
He Testifies: John 15:26,27
The Holy Spirit can be vexed******:
Isaiah 63:10: "But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them." Vexed means to annoy or disturb. In relation to this, we need to understand that we have a responsibility to the Holy Spirit to treat Him as a person. How it must vex Him when His people deny his intelligence, His wisdom, His concerns for us etc.
He can be grieved*******:
You cannot grieve a force or power, but it is possible to grieve a person. Grieving the Spirit should be the last thing that we Believers would want to do, yet we do so often.
Ephesians 4:30 warns that the Holy Spirit can be lied to: Ananias and Sapphira lied to Him with dire results. To know and punish a liar requires intelligence and a sense of value judgments. Conversely, who would attempt to lie to a power or force? The idea itself doesn't even make sense. Acts 5:3:
The Spirit can be resisted*******:
In Stephen's sermon he encouraged his listeners to be open to the Spirit. "You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you do always resist the Holy Spirit; as your parents did, so do you" -- Acts 7:51. Notice that the result of resisting the Spirit is being "stiff-necked."
The Holy Spirit can be called upon*******:
Ezekiel 37:9 is the beginning of the vision of the dry bones arising and being assembled. The Spirit is called to breath life into the dead. If called upon, there is an expected possibility of a response.
The response is that action of personality that we ought to look forward to when we pray. If the Holy Spirit is not a Person He can't reply to our prayers. If He can't reply to our prayers, then why should we pray? On the other hand, when we are praying and worshiping God and sense the presence of the Holy Spirit we should understand that this is not a flow of energy but the actual presence of the Almighty God in our midst! The Holy Spirit has heard and accepted our prayers and praise!
The Spirit is to be obeyed*******:
It is inconceivable to think that we would obey anything less than a person. Acts 10:19-21 tells us that the Holy Spirit ordered Peter to go meet some people and he followed His instructions. At Acts 16:6 Paul is again guided and commanded by the Holy Spirit.
Likewise*******,
The Spirit can be quenched, 1 Thessalonians 5:19.
He can be blasphemed, Matthew 12:31.
He can be revered, Psalm 51:11
The Holy Spirit can be tested, Acts 5:9
He Gives Gifts: 1 Corinthians 12:27:28
He Indwells: 1 Corinthians 6:19
He Convicts: John 16:7
He Intercedes: Romans 8:26:27
He Testifies: John 16:13,14
He Teaches: John 14:26; 1 John 2:27
He Guides: John 16:13

THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM********:
Question 4: What is God? Answer 4: God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth. Question 5: Are there more Gods than one? Answer 5: There is but one only, the living and true God. Question 6: How many persons are there in the Godhead? Answer 6: There are three persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
This requires many of the attributes which we have already discussed. Only a being with personality can call and commission people to diverse ministries around the world. Acts 13:2, Acts 20:28.

THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT:
How do know who is in Christ? Salvation manifests. We will know them BY THEIR FRUITS (Mt.7:20)!

Among these are love, faith, righteousness, humility, compassion, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, selflessness, self-control, temperance, respect, hospitality, thankfulness, charity, forgiveness and purity of heart. The apostle Paul said: "Overall these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity".
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit turns us into a new creation. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17) Being a new creation, we demonstrate the virtues of Jesus Christ. "The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law". (Galatians 5:22-23)

Christ secured our salvation until He comes for us. He who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
Paul exhorts Christians to live as a new creation and abandon the ways of the sinful world. Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness. (2 Timothy 2:13) Do not offer parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life, and offer the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness. (Romans 6:13)

We live in terrible times. People are lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22) If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of Him. (I John 2:29)

Therefore, I urge US in view of God's mercy, to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is our spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind. (Romans 12:1-2 in part)

The Bible has emphasized the importance of loving God and our fellow men. But if anyone obeys God's word, God's love is truly made complete in Him. This is how we know we are in Him. (I John 2:3-5) We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death. (I John 3:14)
Jesus said: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. (Luke 6:27-29) His command: Love each other as I have loved you. (John 15:12) Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be sons of your Father in Heaven. (Matthew 5:44)

How can we show our love? John said: "Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth" (I John 3:18). Since love comes from God, we have the power to love one another and defeat the sins of the world. "... And His commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only He who believes that Jesus is the Son of God" (I John 5:3-5).
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity in him, how can the love of God be in him? (I John 3:16-18). About love, Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command" (John 15:13-14).

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in Him (I John 4:16). Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love (I John 4:7-8).
Paul said that he is nothing without love (I Corinthians 13:2). Paul described love this way. "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails" (I Corinthians 13:4-8).

"Therefore as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And overall these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful" (Colossians 3:12-15).
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him" (Colossians 3:17). " Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men" (Colossians 3:23).

"All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble" (I Peter 5:5). "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace" (Ephesians 4:2). "...God has called us to live in peace" (I Corinthians 7:15).

May we all be blessed by His word.

SUPERNATURAL SALVATION

God loves us and gave us Jesus Christ, unto eternal life, in our family of faith, the church. He guarantees our salvation once we believe on Him and His finished work on our behalf for remission of our sins and washing by His blood. He did it and still does it by His precious blood in Heaven as our High Priest ( Hebrews 1:1-3; 9:11-15; 1 Cor.6:20; Rom. 3:25; Col. 1:21-22).

He KNOWS WHO WE ARE and has sealed us (2 Tim.2:19) (a seal signifies a finished transaction, ownership, and security).
Saved by grace (Eph.2:,8).
"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves,it is the gift of God"
In Christ we are forgiven of all our sins and washed in His blood (Eph.1:7; Heb.9:14; Col.1:14).
We are a new creation. "Therefore, if any man be in Christ he is a new creation; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" (2Cor.5:17)"
We are redeemed from the curse of the law (Gal.3:13).
"Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs from a tree."
We are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1Cor.6:19).
Blessed (Gal.3:9).
A saint (Rom.1:7;1 Cor.1:2; Phil.1:2).
Holy and without blame (Eph.1:4).
One of God's elect (Col.3:12; Rom.8:33).
Established to the end (1Cor.1:8).
Strong in the Lord (Eph.6:10).
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might".
Dead to sin (Rom.6:2,11).
More than a conqueror (Rom.8:37).
Joint heirs with Christ (Rom.8:17).
Sealed for life with the Holy Spirit (Eph.1:13).
In Christ by His doing (1Cor.1:30).
Accepted in the beloved (Eph.1:6).
Complete in Him (Col.2:10).
Crucified, buried, risen and alive with Christ (Gal.2:20; Eph2:5).
Reconciled to God and free from condemnation (2Cor.5:18; Rom.8:1).
A fellow citizen with the saints and of the household of God and qualified to share in His inheritance (Eph.2:19; Col.1:12).
"Now, therefore, you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;..."Eph. 2:19.
Overtaken with blessings and God's workmanship, created in Jesus Christ for good works(Eph.1:3; 2:10).
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them."
We are the righteousness of God, His chosen, and His ambassador (2Cor.5:21; 1Thess.1:4; 2Cor. 5:20).
We are being changed into His image (2Cor. 3:18).
Raised up and being seated in heavenly places with Christ (Col.2:12).
Beloved of God and delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of his dear Son (Col.1:12-14).
Access by one Spirit to the Father (Heb.4:16; Eph.2:18).
"Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace in time of need"

God gave us the truth in His word, the bible. He gave us the Holy Spirit at the moment we believed that Christ is our Savior and has delivered us from ALL our sins and paid the final bill for them with His life. He KEEPS us saved no matter what, because He is the worker behind our eternal life, not we. Our life now and forever is guaranteed by His faithful service to all of mankind, ever, who believe on Him. When we sin we go to our Father and have a loving talk telling GOD what we did and how we feel about it as HIS son or daughter and do so in Jesus name. GOD forgives because His SON died for us and will remember the sins NO MORE. (1 John 1: 6-10; 2:1-2).

When we need help He will answer us with blessings that HE knows is best for us according to HIS will for us (1 John 5:14-15).

God has told us that the MORE we study HIS word the closer we will walk with HIM and the stronger we will get. HIS word is the truth. It is LIFE for us. We are not like the world. The world is not for GOD it is for itself! (1 John 2:15-17; 3:1-3; 4:2-3).

The Holy Spirit will help you understand the bible and the words of GOD to you. But you need to take it most seriously and apply yourself. It is the greatest gift you will ever get besides Jesus Christ. GLORY TO GOD. HE loves us so much and has made sure our life is in HIS hands (John 10:27-29: Romans 8:28-39 ).

WE LOOK FOR HIS COMING NOW

Here is a very important scripture. 2 Tim.4:6-8. In the words of Paul by the Holy Spirit:
"For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Hence forth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing."

I say we can be "Raptured" at any time.
Even NOW.
Some say, even with malice and disdain for the brethren like me that He will arrive at the end of the Great Tribulation to save His church! Some say the middle and others not at all. This is not sound doctrine. It destroys the meaning of His promise of immediacy and the sure hope of our forefathers. It crushes the very attitude we must live in that Paul makes clear above: "...but them also that love his appearing".

Those all keep looking for anti-christ and the Great Tribulation to come and focus on current events to prove their misguided and self serving teachings. They gain many followers!
Do you see what the Spirit is saying to us through Paul? I know you do!

A crown from the Lord for we who live in His faith LOOKING FOR HIM DAILY and full of The Spirit in total commitment to Him .This is our sure hope! His coming for His church of called out ones.

I believe the best inference of Scripture is that the Rapture will occur at the beginning of the Tribulation. The most important reason I believe this has to do with the issue of imminence. Over and over in Scripture we are told to watch for the appearing of the Lord. We are told “to be ready” (Matt. 24:44), “to be on the alert” (Matt. 24:42), “to be dressed in readiness” (Luke 12:35), and to “keep your lamps alight” (Luke 12:35). The clear force of these persistent warnings is that Jesus can appear at any moment.

Only the pre-Tribulation concept of the Rapture allows for the imminence of the Lord’s appearing for His Church. When the Rapture is placed at any other point in time, the imminence of the Lord’s appearing is destroyed because other prophetic events must happen first.

For example, if the Rapture is going to occur in mid-Trib­ulation, then why should I live looking for the Lord’s appearing at any moment? I would be looking instead for an Israeli peace treaty, the rebuilding of the Temple, and the revelation of the Antichrist. Then and only then could the Lord appear.

This raises the issue of what we are to be looking for. Nowhere are believers told to watch for the appearance of the Antichrist. On the contrary, we are told to watch for Jesus Christ. In Titus 2:13 Paul says we are to live “looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus.” Likewise, Peter urges us to “fix our hope completely on the grace to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13). John completes the apostolic chorus by similarly urging us to “fix our hope on Him” at His appearing (1 John 3:2-3).

And no matter when He comes, we do His word a great disservice, even His power and authority, to say He is coming at Tribulations end or in the middle. Even I, who believe it will be before that time, say He can come NOW! But I am safe. I don't set dates NOR do I say to you "look for anti-christ, look at world events for anti-christ and wait for Great Tribulation to start and then He will come"! WRONG! ERROR! maybe HERESY! If we must go through Tribulation so be it BUT LOOK FOR HIM NOW!

Paul looked for Him 2000 years ago!!! Who says this looking started in the 18 century! The Devil made it up! Those who scoff at the pre-Tribulation Rapture in particular deride as the "escapist" mentality of holding to the Blessed Hope; however Jesus personally advised His disciples to pray that they would escape the Tribulation:

"And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." (Luke 21:36)

Those who are "accounted worthy to escape" that day, which will fall as a snare upon all who dwell on the earth, will also be spared the temptation of the strong delusion of II Thessalonians 2:11. Jesus prophesied to these, His elect: "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. " (Rev. 3:10) The elders of these elect are seen in the next chapter of Revelation, casting their crowns of gold before the Throne of the Lamb, before the Tribulation begins.

Brethren, no matter when the Lord calls us Home we must keep THE faith which is in the truth of His word. We are to live each day with the joyful hope that He can come now. With this hope we will have great love for our ministry to the lost, because we love Him, and want to do His will daily. Want to reach the lost world with His Gospel of Grace knowing that He is coming. To set dates such as "At the end of the Great Tribulation" is wrong. Or to be certain of it at any other time is wrong! But to live as He would have us is to believe, like Paul, that He can come RIGHT NOW! NEVER give up that hope. TO DO SO WILL FORFEIT THE CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS AND THE SURE HOPE OF ETERNITY

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Eph.1:3:").

We who believe, are seated in Christ in the heavenlies! This is the exalted position He has given us! No matter what our condition is down here, we are positioned in Him above. We are blessed right now with all spiritual blessings. Have you ever stopped to think what you have in Christ? We are justified and sanctified in Him. Either lay hold of them or not. We are most blessed of all peoples.

In His plan for the ages God the Father made a blueprint so to speak. Here is the one for the church.
1. He chose us in Christ. Eph. 1:4
2.He predestinated us to the place of sonship. Eph. 1:5
3.He made us accepted in the Beloved (Christ). Eph.1:6

"According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love" (Eph.1:4).

The spiritual blessings which you and I have been given are in accord with the divine will and in perfect unison with God's purpose. We are to open our gift to see what God has done for us and then move out IN FAITH and lay hold of them and live on His high plane He has brought us in Christ. This was God's plan before creation. The church was planned, God the Son paid for us, and God the Holy Spirit protects us. The source of all our blessings is God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The source of our salvation is not of ourselves (works), God is (Eph.2:8-9).

"According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world".

God planned our salvation before we were! Christ came down in time to deliver it in His completed work on the cross. The Holy Spirit is the One who convicts us of sin. He brings us to a place of faith in Christ and to a saving knowledge of the grace of God that is revealed in the Lord Jesus Christ.God does the saving and we, the sinning. We were lost and He found us! God chose us before the foundation of the world. He did not choose us because we were good! He chose us so that we could do some good. It is by His sovereign will and His goodness and wisdom that we are here now serving Him.
"You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you..."(John 15:16)

"...that we should be holy and without blame before him in love"

God's choice of us was in order to sanctify us that we might be holy. A holy life is demanded by God's election. We don't then go out and do as we please (Rom.6:1-2). We can't use grace as a license to sin. If we are living IN SIN it is because we are sinners who haven't been saved. A sinner who has been saved will show a change in his way of living.

We are elect of God that we should also be "without blame". God chose Israel and would not allow Balaam to curse Israel or to find fault with His people (Num.23:21). But God found fault with them AND JUDGED THEM in order to sanctify and purify them. God will dicipline us when sin is present and unconfessed.

If there is no evidence of change in our lives then we must ask ourselves, "are we one of His elect"? This is what we look for, and God has made provision to absolve us from our sins which all of us do (1 John 2:1-2). The fact that we know we sin is a change in our life! There is NO limited atonement. Christ died for the world as this verse shows.
"And he is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the world" (1 John 2:2)
The call of God has gone out to the whole world. If we hear it and respond, according to our free will, then we are one of the "elect"(John 6:37). Some chose not to. They are the lost.

"Chosen us in him".

God has made His choice.
"But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved in the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereby he called you to our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Thess. 2 :13-14). Peter writes in 1 Pet. 1:2, "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ..." God saves sinners needing the blood of Christ to clean them (Rom.9:14-16).

No one knows who the elect are, only God knows. We are to preach His Gospel of Grace to all. The elect are those who heed God's call. Those who don't, have by their free will chosen sin over salvation and are not elect (Rom.9:14).

"Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will" (Eph.1:5).

We need to know that we have been chosen in Him in order to stand for God today. This assurance will make a world of difference in our life.

(* The elect are the whosoever wills and the non-elect are the whosoever won'ts" according to His purpose.
The doctrine of election lays an axe at the root of pride, presumption, and despair.)

Predestination means that when God saves you He will see you through to the end. This is all about our sanctification, our spiritual development. It is the work of God in the heart and life of the believer. Our salvation and development as a son and daughter of God is guaranteed by His perfection and His responsibility towards us. Jesus is the author and finisher of the faith He gave us in Him. No one will be lost who is found in Christ according to God's predetermination. See Luke15 and the parable of the one lost sheep. There were 99 left but that one who strayed was as important as the 99. All of us are of equal importance with God. This is election! God will NOT lose one of us! (Rom.8:28-39).

Eph. 1:7. "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace".

God the Son paid the price for the church. Back in eternity past God chose us, predestinated us, and made us accepted in the beloved. In time, these plans were realized when Christ walked out unto the stage of life in human form to redeem us who are His church. That redemption was solely and exclusively by His blood (Mt.20:28) We were bought with a price; the life and love of Jesus who gave Himself for us (1 Cor.6:20) . This was a final liberation of us by Him (Gal.3:13).

Do we serve our Lord out of Love?If so we will keep His commandments. We will serve Him in love because He loved us first (1 John 4:19) and gave His life for us (John 14:15). And because we have God the Spirit in us we will love one another and confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (1 John 4:10-16).

YOU ARE HIS
You were His from before the earth was made
His to bless His heart of Love
You were His to give Him the glory
His while you waited in the womb of your blessed mother
Your days were known to Him
Your faithfulness guaranteed
The hairs on your head counted
Your breaths measured
Your life in His hands
You were His for eternity
His when you first awoke from a death's sleep
His in your moments of doubt
His in the battle
His when you rise and lay down
He will never give you up
You are His precious possession
His no matter what transpires
His in the New Jerusalem
You are His in love forever

HE IS COMING PT1

The term, Rapture, comes from a Latin word that means to catch up, to snatch away, or to take out. It is a Biblical word that comes right out of the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible. The word is found in 1 Thess. 4:17. In the New American Standard Ver­sion, the English phrase, “caught up,” is used. The same phrase is used in the King James and New International Versions.

A Promise to the Church
The concept of the Rapture was not revealed to the Old Testament prophets because it is a promise to the New Testament Church and not to the saints of God who lived before the estab­lishment of the Church.

The saints of Old Testament times will be resurrected at the end of the Tribulation and not at the time of the Rapture of the Church. Daniel reveals this fact in Daniel 12:1-2 where he says that the saints of that age will be resurrected at the end of the “time of distress.”

Biblical References
The first clear mention of the Rapture in Scripture is found in the words of Jesus recorded in John 14:1-4. Jesus said, “I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”

The most detailed revelation of the actual events related to the Rapture is given by Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. He says that when Jesus appears, the dead in Christ (Church age saints) will be resurrected and caught up first. Then, those of us who are alive in Christ will be translated “to meet the Lord in the air.” Paul then exhorts us to “comfort one another with these words.”

Paul mentions the Rapture again in 1 Corinthians 15 - his famous chapter on the resurrection of the dead:

“Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.” (verses 51 and 52)

Paul’s reference here to being changed is an allusion to the fact that the saints will receive glorified bodies that will be perfected, imperishable and immortal (1 Cor. 15:42-44, and 50-55).

The Timing
The most controversial aspect of the Rapture is its timing. Some place it at the end of the Tribulation, making it one and the same event as the Second Coming. Others place it in the middle of the Tribulation. Still others believe that it will occur at the beginning of the Tribulation.

The reason for these differing viewpoints is that the exact time of the Rapture is not precisely revealed in scripture. It is only inferred. There is, therefore, room for honest differences of opinion, and lines of fellowship should certainly not be drawn over differences regarding this point, even though it is an important point.

Post-Tribulation Rapture
Those who place the timing at the end of the Tribulation usually base their argument on two parables in Mat­thew 13 and on the Lord’s Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24.

In Matthew 24 the Lord portrays His gathering of the saints as an event that will take place “immediately after the tribulation of those days” (Matt. 24:29). This certainly sounds like a post-Tribulation Rapture. But it must be kept in mind that the book of Matthew was written to the Jews, and therefore the recording of Jesus’ speech by Matthew has a distinctively Jewish flavor to it as compared to Luke’s record of the same speech.

Note, for example, Matthew’s references to Judea and to Jewish law regarding travel on the Sabbath (Matt. 24:15-20). These are omitted in Luke’s account. Instead, Luke speaks of the saints looking up for deliverance “to escape all these things” when the end time signs “begin to take place” (Luke 21:28 and 36). The saints in Matthew are instructed to flee from Judea and hide. The saints in Luke are told to look up for deliverance.

It appears, therefore, that Matthew and Luke are speak­ing of two different sets of saints. The saints in Matthew’s account are most likely Jews who receive Jesus as their Messiah during the Tribulation. The saints in Luke are those who receive Christ be­fore the Tribulation begins. Most of those who accept the Lord during the Tribula­tion will be martyred (Rev. 7:9-14). Those who live to the end will be gathered by the angels of the Lord (Matt. 24:31).

The parable of the wheat and tares (Matt. 13:24-30) and the parable of the dragnet (Matt. 13:47-50) can be explained in the same way. They refer to a separation of saints and sinners that will take place at the end of the Tribulation. The saints are those who receive Jesus as their Savior during the Tribulation (Gentile and Jew) and who live to the end of that awful period.

Mid-Tribulation Rapture
There are variations of the mid-Tribulation Rapture concept. The most common is that the Church will be taken out in the exact middle of the Tribulation, at the point in time when the Antichrist is revealed.

This concept is based upon a statement in 1 Corinthians 15:52 which says that the Rapture will occur at the blowing of “the last trumpet.” This trumpet is then identified with the seventh trumpet of the trumpet judgments in the book of Revelation. Since the blowing of the seventh trumpet is recorded in Revelation 11, the mid-point of the Tribulation, the conclusion is that the Rapture must occur in the middle of the Tribulation.

But there are two problems with this interpretation. The first is that the last trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15 is blown for believers whereas the seven trumpets of Revelation 8, 9 and 11 are sounded for unbelievers. The Revelation trumpets have no relevance for the Church. The last trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15 is a trumpet for the righteous. The last trumpet for the unrighteous is the one described in Revelation 11.

Another problem with this interpretation is that the passage in Revelation 11 that portrays the sounding of the seventh trumpet is a “flash forward” to the end of the Tribulation. Flash forwards are very common in the book of Revelation. They occur after something terrible is described in order to assure the reader that everything is going to turn out all right when Jesus returns at the end of the Tribulation.

Thus, the eighth and ninth chapters of Revelation, which describe the horrors of the trumpet judgments, are followed immediately by a flash forward in chapter 10 that pictures the return of Jesus in victory at the end of the Tribulation. The mid-Tribulation action resumes in chapter 11 with a description of the killing of the two great prophets of God by the Antichrist. Then, to offset that terrible event, we are presented with another flash forward, beginning with verse 15. The seventh trum­pet is sounded and we find ourselves pro­pelled forward to the end of the Tribulation when “the kingdom of the world becomes the kingdom of our Lord.”

The point is that the seventh trumpet of Revelation relates to the end of the Tribulation and not the middle. It is therefore no basis for an argument in behalf of a mid-Tribulation Rapture.

Pre-Wrath Rapture
The cornerstone of this concept is that the terrifying events during the first half of the Tribulation are due to the wrath of Man and Satan, and not to God. Since the Church is only promised protection from the wrath of God, the Rapture will not occur until near the end of the Tribulation when God will pour out His wrath on the world.

This concept raises a serious theological problem because it questions the sovereignty of God. It assumes that Man and Satan can act apart from God’s will, when the fact of the matter is that neither can do anything God is not willing to permit. The Bible often portrays God carrying out His will through evil persons or nations. One of the classic examples is when He allowed the evil nation of Babylon to discipline Israel by destroying Jerusalem and the Temple and by carrying the surviving Jews away into captivity. It was an action that prompted the prophet Habakkuk to ask why God would punish those who are evil with those who are more evil (Habakkuk 1:13).

Any carnage wrought by Man or Satan during the Tribulation will still constitute the wrath of God. They will simply be His instruments. The Bible says God sits in the heavens and laughs over the plots and deeds of evil men, not because He does not care, but because He has everything under control (Psalm 2:1-6). The point is that He has the wisdom and power to orchestrate all evil to the triumph of His will in history. That’s why the psalmist wrote that “the wrath of man shall praise You [God]” (Psalm 76:10).

HE IS COMING PT2

I think it is also important to note that when God pours out His wrath, He does not always do so directly. One of His most common ways is to simply back away from the nation or person and lower the hedge of protection around them. This is clearly spelled out in Romans 1:18-32. That passage says that when people rebel against God to the point that they begin to worship the creation rather than the Creator, God “gives them over” to the evil in their hearts. In other words, He just steps back and lets evil multiply. The passage further states that if they still refuse to repent, He steps back again and “gives them over to degrading passions.” And if they persist in their rebellion and sin, He finally “gives them over to a depraved mind” at which point the society destroys itself. Such destruction could be viewed as the wrath of Man, but it is really the wrath of God working through Man.

There is another serious problem with the pre-wrath Rapture concept. It relates to the fact that all the wrath of Revelation is specifically portrayed as the wrath of God. Where do the seal judgments originate? The answer is from the throne of God as Jesus opens each seal of the scroll that was in the Father’s right hand (Revelation 6:1). And where do the trumpet judgments originate? The same place — from the throne of God (Revelation 8:2). When we arrive at the bowl judgments in Revelation 15:1, we are told that with them, “the wrath of God is finished.”

Another problem with the pre-wrath concept is that it does violence to the chronological order of Revelation. The seal judgments are viewed as the wrath of Man and Satan, occurring during the first half of the Tribulation. The trumpet and bowl judgments are considered to be the wrath of God.

They are lumped together at the end of the Tribulation. There is no justification for putting the trumpet judgments at the end of the Tribulation. They are clearly placed in the first half of the Tribulation in the chronological layout of the book of Revelation.

One final problem with the pre-wrath concept of the Rapture is that it disputes the fact that there is no purpose for the Church being in the Tribulation. The Tribulation is the 70th week of Daniel, a time devoted to God accomplishing His purposes among the Jewish people, not the Church.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture
I believe the best inference of Scripture is that the Rapture will occur at the beginning of the Tribulation. The most important reason I believe this has to do with the issue of imminence. Over and over in Scripture we are told to watch for the appearing of the Lord. We are told “to be ready” (Matt. 24:44), “to be on the alert” (Matt. 24:42), “to be dressed in readiness” (Luke 12:35), and to “keep your lamps alight” (Luke 12:35). The clear force of these persistent warnings is that Jesus can appear at any moment.

Only the pre-Tribulation concept of the Rapture allows for the imminence of the Lord’s appearing for His Church. When the Rapture is placed at any other point in time, the imminence of the Lord’s appearing is destroyed because other prophetic events must happen first.

For example, if the Rapture is going to occur in mid-Tribulation, then why should I live looking for the Lord’s appear­ing at any moment? I would be looking instead for an Israeli peace treaty, the rebuilding of the Temple, and the revelation of the Antichrist. Then and only then could the Lord appear.

Focus
This raises the issue of what we are to be looking for. Nowhere are believers told to watch for the appearance of the Antichrist. On the contrary, we are told to watch for Jesus Christ. In Titus 2:13 Paul says we are to live “looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus.” Likewise, Peter urges us to “fix our hope completely on the grace to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13). John completes the apostolic chorus by similarly urging us to “fix our hope on Him” at His appearing (1 John 3:2-3).

Only Matthew speaks of watching for the Antichrist (Matt. 24:15), but he is speaking to the Jews living in Israel in the middle of the Tribulation when the Antichrist desecrates the rebuilt Temple.

Wrath
Another argument in behalf of a pre-Tribulation Rapture has to do with the promises of God to protect the Church from His wrath. As has already been demonstrated, the book of Revelation shows that the wrath of God will be poured out during the entire period of the Tribulation.

The Word promises over and over that the Church will be delivered from God’s wrath. Romans 5:9 says that “we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him [Jesus].” 1 Thess. 1:10 states that we are waiting “for His Son from heaven . . . who will deliver us from the wrath to come.” The promise is repeated in 1 Thess. 5:9 - “God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Deliverance
Some argue that God could supernaturally protect the Church during the Tribulation. Yes, He could. In fact, He promises to do just that for the 144,000 Jews who will be sealed as bond-servants at the beginning of the Tribulation (Rev. 7:1-8).

But God’s promise to the Church during the Tribulation is not one of protection but one of deliverance. Jesus said we would “escape” the horrors of the Tribulation (Luke 21:3­6). Paul says Jesus is coming to “deliver” us from God’s wrath (1 Thess. 1:10).

HE IS COMING PT3
Symbolism
There are several prophetic types that seem to affirm the concept of deliverance from Tribulation. Take Enoch for example. He was a prophet to the Gen­tiles who was raptured out of the world before God poured out His wrath in the great flood of Noah’s time. Enoch ap­pears to be a type of the Gentile Church that will be taken out of the world before God pours out His wrath again. If so, then Noah and his family are a type of the Jewish rem­nant that will be protected through the Tribulation.

Another Old Testament symbolic type which points toward a pre-Tribulation Rapture is the experience of Lot and his family. They were delivered out of Sodom and Gomorrah before those cities were destroyed.

The Apostle Peter alludes to both of these examples in his second epistle. He states that if God spared Noah and Lot, then He surely “knows how to rescue the godly from trial and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment” (2 Peter 4-9).

Another beautiful prophetic type is to be found in the Jewish wedding traditions of Jesus time. After the betrothal, the groom would return to his father’s house to prepare a wedding chamber for his bride. He would return for his bride at an unexpected moment, so the bride had to be ready constantly. When he returned, he would take his bride back to his father’s house to the chamber he had prepared. He and his bride would then be sealed in the chamber for seven days. When they emerged, a great wed­ding feast would be celebrated.

Likewise, Jesus has returned to Heaven to prepare a place for His bride, the Church. When He returns for His bride, He will take her to His Father’s heavenly home. There He will remain with His bride for seven years (the duration of the Tribulation). The period will end with “the marriage supper of the Lamb” described in Revela­tion 19. Thus the seven days in the wedding cham­ber point prophetically to the seven years that Jesus and His bride will remain in Heaven during the Tribulation.

Revelation
Speaking of Revelation, the structure of that book also implies a pre-Tribulation Rapture in a sym­bolic sense. The first three chapters focus on the Church. Chapter 4 begins with the door of Heaven opening and John being raptured from the isle of Patmos to the throne of God in Heaven. The Church is not mentioned thereafter until Revelation 19:7-9 when it is portrayed as the “bride of Christ” in Heaven with Jesus celebrating the “marriage supper of the Lamb.” At Revelation 19:11 the door of Heaven opens again, and Jesus emerges riding a white horse on His way to earth, followed by His Church (Rev. 19:14).

The rapture of the Apostle John in Revelation 4 appears to be a symbolic type of the Rapture of the Church. Note that it is initiated by the cry of a voice that sounds like the blowing of a trumpet (Rev. 4:1). Since the Tribulation does not begin until Revelation 6, the rapture of John in Revelation 4 appears to be a symbolic type that points to a pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church.

Some counter this argument by pointing out that although the Church is not mentioned in Revelation during that book’s description of the Tribulation, there is constant men­tion of “saints” (for ex­ample, Rev. 13:7). But that term is not used in the Bible exclusively to refer to members of the Church. Daniel uses it to refer to Old Testament believers who lived long before the Church was established (Dan. 7:18). The saints referred to in the book of Revelation are most likely those people who will be saved during the Tribulation, after the Church has been taken out of the world.

Paul’s Assurance
An interesting argument in behalf of the pre-Tribulation timing of the Rapture can be found in 2 Thessalonians. The church at Thessalonica was in a turmoil because someone had written them a letter under Paul’s name stating that they had missed the “gathering to the Lord” and were, in fact, living in “the day of the Lord” (2 Thess. 2:1-2).

Paul attempted to calm them down by reminding them of his teaching that the Day of the Lord would not come until there come a "falling away first" (Proper translation of Greek should read "removal")of the true church and then the Antichrist is revealed. He then stated that the Antichrist would not be revealed until a restraining force “is taken out of the way” (2 Thess. 2:3-7).

There has been much speculation as to the identify of this restraining force that Paul refers to. Some have identified it as the Holy Spirit. But it cannot be the Holy Spirit because there will be people saved during the Tribulation, and no one can be saved apart from the testimony of the Spirit. God is always present on earth. (John 16:8-11 and 1 John 5:7).

Others have identified the restrainer as human government. It is true that government was ordained by God to restrain evil (Romans 13:1-4). But the governments of the world are in rebellion against God and His Son (Psalm 2), and they are therefore a contributor to the evil that characterizes the world. Furthermore, the Tribulation will not be characterized by a lack of government. Rather, it will feature the first true worldwide government (Rev. 13:7).

In my opinion that leaves only one other candidate for Paul’s restrainer - and that is the Church. It is the Church that serves as the primary restrainer of evil in the world today as it proclaims the Gospel and stands for righteousness. When the Church fails in this mission, evil multiplies, as Paul graphically points out in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Paul says that society in the end times will be characterized by chaos and despair because “men will hold to a form of religion but will deny its power.” When the Church is removed from the world, all hell will literally break loose.

Escapism?
The pre-Tribulation concept of the Rapture has often been condemned as “escapism.” I think this criticism is unjustified. The Bible itself says that Christians are to “comfort one another” with the thought of the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:18). Is it a comfort to think of the Rapture occurring at the end of the world’s worst period of war and calamities that destroy more then half the world's population instead of at the beginning?

Regardless of when the Rapture actually occurs, we need to keep in mind that the Bible teaches that societal conditions are going to grow increasingly worse the closer we get to the Lord’s return. That means Christians will suffer tribulation whether or not they go into the Great Tribulation. And that means all of us had better be preparing our­selves for unprecedented suffering and spiritual warfare.

If you are a Christian, you can do that on a daily basis by putting on “the full armor of God” (Eph. 6:13), praying at all times in the Spirit that you will be able to stand firm against the attacks of Satan (Eph. 6:14-18).

If you are not a Christian, your only hope is to reach out in faith and receive the free gift of God’s salvation which He has provided through His Son, Jesus (John 3:16).



"What is replacement theology?"

Answer: Replacement Theology essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of Replacement Theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel. All the different views of the relationship between the church and Israel can be divided into two camps: either the Church is a continuation of Israel (Replacement Theology / Covenant Theology), or the Church is completely different and distinct from Israel (Dispensationalism / Premillennialism).

Replacement Theology teaches that the Church is the replacement for Israel and that the many promises made to Israel in the Bible are fulfilled in the Christian Church, not in Israel. So, the prophecies in Scripture concerning the blessing and restoration of Israel to the Promised Land are "spiritualized" or “allegorized” into promises of God's blessing for the Church. Major problems exist with this view, such as the continuing existence of the Jewish people throughout the centuries and especially with the revival of the modern state of Israel. If Israel has been condemned by God, and there is no future for the Jewish nation, how do we explain the supernatural survival of the Jewish people over the past 2000 years despite the many attempts to destroy them? How do we explain why and how Israel reappeared as a nation in the 20th century after not existing for 1900 years?

The view that Israel and the Church are different is clearly taught in the New Testament. In this view, the Church is completely different and distinct from Israel, and the two are never to be confused or used interchangeably. We are taught from Scripture that the Church is an entirely new creation, that came into being on the Day of Pentecost, and will continue until it is translated to heaven at the Rapture (Ephesians 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17). The Church has no relationship to the curses and blessings for Israel. The covenants, promises, and warnings are valid only for Israel. Israel has been temporarily set aside in God's program during these past 2,000 years of dispersion.

After the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18), God will restore Israel as the primary focus of His plan. The first event at this time is the Great Tribulation (Revelation chapters 6-19). The world will be judged for rejecting Christ, while Israel is prepared through the trials of the Great Tribulation for the Second Coming of the Messiah. Then when Christ does return to the earth, at the end of the Tribulation, Israel will be ready to receive Him. The remnant of Israel which survives the Tribulation will be saved and the Lord will establish His kingdom on this earth with Jerusalem as its capital. With Christ reigning as King, Israel will be the leading nation, and representatives from all nations will come to Jerusalem to honor and worship the King—Jesus Christ. The Church will return with Christ and will reign with Him for a literal thousand years (Revelation 20:1-5).

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament support a Premillennial / Dispensational understanding of God's plan for Israel. Even so, the strongest support for Premillennialism is found in the clear teaching of Revelation 20:1-7, where it says, six times, that Christ's kingdom will last 1,000 years. After the Tribulation the Lord will return and establish His kingdom with the nation of Israel, Christ will reign over the whole earth and Israel will be the leader of the nations. The Church will reign with Him for a literal thousand years. The church has not replaced Israel in God's plan. While God may be focusing His attention primarily on the church in this dispensation of grace, God has not forgotten Israel, and will one day restore Israel to His intended role for the nation He has chosen (Romans chapter 11).

ISRAEL, TRIBULATION, REBIRTH
"..Behold, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, has prevailed..." (Rev.5:5)
Satan has succeeded in poisoning many "Christians" and made them pawns in his diabolic quest to destroy the Jew. He used Hitler to great advantage but his best efforts are right here on YouTube. Sugar coated Videos that are expensive production pieces costing the "Church" serious money, lead the way, in this genocide hidden in "truths" they propound are "biblically" correct. Quite! Like at the temptation of Jesus chapter and verse are used like a weapon of mass destruction, to prove God, our Lord has been FINISHED with His forefathers sons and daughter's for 2000 years and forevermore!

I would not bother you with this again if your welfare and walk in Christ was not affected by this heresy and bold faced anti-semitic. But by command of the Lord and as an elder in His church I must reach out and forewarn you. God is very jealous for His own. And though one who espouses this, may be saved, although I cannot say,they will be judged for this, if not now, then when they reach His throne in heaven or His throne of final and eternal judgment at the resurrection of the lost.

They are not excused. They say the church will be going through some or all of the Great Tribulation of 7 years. Of coarse!
Take Israel out of the Tribulation and who are the 144,000 Jewish saints ,12,000 from each of the 12 tribes? (Rev.7;1-17).
Who is sealed by God? (Rev.7:4). Does a Christian who has been sealed by the Holy Spirit, and baptized as well, need another seal. Is not God The Spirit as good as it gets for protection? Nothing better! But these dupes of the Devil tug and pull the scriptures to an almost unbelievable distorted length to destroy what God makes abundantly clear in His word. They pervert the Book of Revelation! Israel will pay a great price during their time called "Jacobs Trouble". The church, by the grace of God, will be in heaven (John 14:1-3).

And what of The Lion, our Lord? Will He be true to his blood family? Will He keep His word to them? These biblical rewriter's say absolutely not! They say God, through the Church!, has buried Israel in a graveyard of no return. That we have taken on all God's promises to them. That The Lion of The Tribe of Judah, born a Jew and named that name from His lineage through King David and promised final victory for His people in Gen.49:9-10, as well as rule over them AND the world (2 Samuel 7.), has no merit. They say and say and swear by it!

They call us Dispensational. Well I say that God does have a program for this earth that He foreknew and has every right to fulfill. And does it in a clear and orderly fashion, not according to the Devils design, but His word. And He keeps His word!

See Palestinian, Davidic and New Covenants
Dt.29; Jer.31 & 33; 50:20; Isa.1:9; Ezk.39:25-29; Rom.11:5

Israel, the nation, in unbelief, is in a portion of the land promised it's forefather's. It rejects the gospel. It is not the land God promised. Nor according to His plan

A NATION BORN IN A DAY (Isaiah 66:8, 15-16)
One day a remnant of believing Jews from the world over will occupy all the land promised in the Palestinian Covenant. After the terrible time of Jacobs Trouble. After the great tribulation. After The Lord delivers them from all their enemies...when they believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. When King David is raised from the dead. At the latter rains. Then Israel will be the worlds capital and Jesus will rule the kings of the earth and David will assist Him.(Jer.31:27-37; 32:37-40; 50:4; Joel 2:28-32; 3:1; Isa.11:10-12; Ezek.37:21-28; Acts 15:18).

"I will ransom you from the power of the grave; I will redeem you from death..."(Hosea 13:14).

"Listen to me, oh house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been born by me from before you were; and even to your old age I am he; and even unto gray hairs will I carry you,... and will deliver you... Remember the former things of old;... for I am God and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My council shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure" (Isa.46:3-4,9-10).

ISRAEL WILL YET BE PRESERVED AND DELIVERED FROM THEIR INIQUITY AND DISBELIEF BY THE LORD HIMSELF

Jer.33:8 "And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me."

Jer.33:9 "And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honor before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it."

Israel After "Jacobs Trouble" In The Land God Gave
"And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good, but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me."(Jer.32:40; See also 50:5: Isa.61:8: Heb.8:8).


"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Eph.1:3:").

We who believe, are seated in Christ in the heavenlies! This is the exalted position He has given us! No matter what our condition is down here, we are positioned in Him above. We are blessed right now with all spiritual blessings. Have you ever stopped to think what you have in Christ? We are justified and sanctified in Him. Either lay hold of them or not. We are most blessed of all peoples.

In His plan for the ages God the Father made a blueprint so to speak. Here is the one for the church.
1. He chose us in Christ. Eph. 1:4
2.He predestinated us to the place of sonship. Eph. 1:5
3.He made us accepted in the Beloved (Christ). Eph.1:6

"According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love" (Eph.1:4).

The spiritual blessings which you and I have been given are in accord with the divine will and in perfect unison with God's purpose. We are to open our gift to see what God has done for us and then move out IN FAITH and lay hold of them and live on His high plane He has brought us in Christ. This was God's plan before creation. The church was planned, God the Son paid for us, and God the Holy Spirit protects us. The source of all our blessings is God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The source of our salvation is not of ourselves (works), God is (Eph.2:8-9).

"According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world".

God planned our salvation before we were! Christ came down in time to deliver it in His completed work on the cross. The Holy Spirit is the One who convicts us of sin. He brings us to a place of faith in Christ and to a saving knowledge of the grace of God that is revealed in the Lord Jesus Christ.God does the saving and we, the sinning. We were lost and He found us! God chose us before the foundation of the world. He did not choose us because we were good! He chose us so that we could do some good. It is by His sovereign will and His goodness and wisdom that we are here now serving Him.
"You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you..."(John 15:16)

"...that we should be holy and without blame before him in love"

God's choice of us was in order to sanctify us that we might be holy. A holy life is demanded by God's election. We don't then go out and do as we please (Rom.6:1-2). We can't use grace as a license to sin. If we are living IN SIN it is because we are sinners who haven't been saved. A sinner who has been saved will show a change in his way of living.

We are elect of God that we should also be "without blame". God chose Israel and would not allow Balaam to curse Israel or to find fault with His people (Num.23:21). But God found fault with them AND JUDGED THEM in order to sanctify and purify them. God will dicipline us when sin is present and unconfessed.

If there is no evidence of change in our lives then we must ask ourselves, "are we one of His elect"? This is what we look for, and God has made provision to absolve us from our sins which all of us do (1 John 2:1-2). The fact that we know we sin is a change in our life! There is NO limited atonement. Christ died for the world as this verse shows.
"And he is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the world" (1 John 2:2)
The call of God has gone out to the whole world. If we hear it and respond, according to our free will, then we are one of the "elect"(John 6:37). Some chose not to. They are the lost.

"Chosen us in him".

God has made His choice.
"But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved in the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereby he called you to our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Thess. 2 :13-14). Peter writes in 1 Pet. 1:2, "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ..." God saves sinners needing the blood of Christ to clean them (Rom.9:14-16).

No one knows who the elect are, only God knows. We are to preach His Gospel of Grace to all. The elect are those who heed God's call. Those who don't, have by their free will chosen sin over salvation and are not elect (Rom.9:14).

"Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will" (Eph.1:5).

We need to know that we have been chosen in Him in order to stand for God today. This assurance will make a world of difference in our life.

(* The elect are the whosoever wills and the non-elect are the whosoever won'ts" according to His purpose.
The doctrine of election lays an axe at the root of pride, presumption, and despair.)

Predestination means that when God saves you He will see you through to the end. This is all about our sanctification, our spiritual development. It is the work of God in the heart and life of the believer. Our salvation and development as a son and daughter of God is guaranteed by His perfection and His responsibility towards us. Jesus is the author and finisher of the faith He gave us in Him. No one will be lost who is found in Christ according to God's predetermination. See Luke15 and the parable of the one lost sheep. There were 99 left but that one who strayed was as important as the 99. All of us are of equal importance with God. This is election! God will NOT lose one of us! (Rom.8:28-39).

Eph. 1:7. "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace".

God the Son paid the price for the church. Back in eternity past God chose us, predestinated us, and made us accepted in the beloved. In time, these plans were realized when Christ walked out unto the stage of life in human form to redeem us who are His church. That redemption was solely and exclusively by His blood (Mt.20:28) We were bought with a price; the life and love of Jesus who gave Himself for us (1 Cor.6:20) . This was a final liberation of us by Him (Gal.3:13).

Do we serve our Lord out of Love?If so we will keep His commandments. We will serve Him in love because He loved us first (1 John 4:19) and gave His life for us (John 14:15). And because we have God the Spirit in us we will love one another and confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (1 John 4:10-16).

YOU ARE HIS
You were His from before the earth was made
His to bless His heart of Love
You were His to give Him the glory
His while you waited in the womb of your blessed mother
Your days were known to Him
Your faithfulness guaranteed
The hairs on your head counted
Your breaths measured
Your life in His hands
You were His for eternity
His when you first awoke from a death's sleep
His in your moments of doubt
His in the battle
His when you rise and lay down
He will never give you up
You are His precious possession
His no matter what transpires
His in the New Jerusalem
You are His in love forever

YES HE CAN
There are two God given blessings that were seared in my heart and mind as a child growing up in Brooklyn, NY. The first was the love of my parents and the second the devotion of my father to God. He was a man of few words. In his prayers and deep reverence, I witnessed his faithfulness, and was amazed at his intensity. He prayed in Hebrew, and though I did not know the meaning of the words he spoke, the Spirit indelibly impressed it in my child's being which touched me deeply.

Thus I labor in the fields as you, never doubting that I am a child of our Father, who gave me great treasures of the Spirit while other's around me, for reasons I do not question, received great material gifts in a nation that today has reached the chocking point of spiritual confusion.

Why do we labor? To draw back because we walk in the spiritual graveyard of no returns? God forbid! We bow to God's reality that cries out the name of Jesus Christ amidst the roar of the ravenous lion who walks around seeking whom he may devour.

We see by other sight, hear His melodies that caress our deepest being where His Spirit rests. We taste the sweetness of His words and feast on His loving kindness, propelled by His calling, and are filled with the tears of God, in which so many verses were written in the blood of Jesus, that inspire and quench our thirst and seal our sacrifice for the Glory of His only begotten.

Our Father and His Son, the givers of this world and the breath of life we breath, despised by most, abused by multitudes, loved by few, call out to us to forget what is, and has been of man and fallen spirits, and fully come over into the reality of what will be, through faith alone, and apply it to the here and now, as though it is, in His truth and love, It Is!

We are His Son's pearl of great price. Shining stars in the darkness of this present world. Caretakers in His magnificent garden where the flower's stand and sigh giving Him the glory. We are the 24/7 church. Children of tomorrow. We look for a better place He has prepared, and occupy this land, where fields are ripe for harvest, and by His grace, His laborers, who sow His seed IN LOVE (without love, a harsh sounding noise in the ear of the lost and the found) and await His harvest.


THE LOVE OF GOD OUR SAVIOR TEACHES US
COUNT THE COSTS

Now lets see. God took everything away from me, of the world, to get me to a place where I could be of value to Him. Jesus had nothing. Paul had nothing and whatever he still had of his old nature he considered it "DUNG"!

God wants to use us as much as we can offer up. If we want to speculate about our life before and how it was full of this or that we will be wasting our time. You, I, we all were beyond addictions, WE WERE DEAD. Good for nothing to GOD. THE BEST OF US HIGH CLIMBERS WERE GOOD FOR NOTHING!
When GOD called me He made me "Whats What"! good for nothing for the glory of the world! Not even money had any value. A pee jar, a van, a hard metal floor bed, a Coleman stove, a pot and pan, a few pieces of clothing, and THE BIBLE and FAITH. He put me on the road with the homeless. They were my congregation, my God sent opportunity to serve them in His name and His love. They never knew my name!

We are on HIS clock now. He is our boss. We will serve Him until He calls us up to Him. When that is our mode of operation, when we must study and do His will, when we sleep a Holy Spirit sleep, not like other's but tuned in, because He is with us, then we are in the greatest shape we will ever be in. Don't worry about the clock. We are in God's time zone.

Real time is for His glory. When we are in Him we don't think about death. We die all day to this world. The sooner the better. He knows when we will breath our last breath...the exact moment. He is our insurance. It is air tight. He knows all else that will transpire before that split second. We see as through a glass darkly, but by His faith, we go on and on serving Him without self considerations. We have perceptions of His amazing grace unfolding before our still dim but God blessed focused eyes. We who are of blood tipped ears! We hear Him well.

HE PROMISED US HIS FATHER WOULD CARE FOR US. OUR FATHER CARES FOR US. NO ONE, NOT ANYTHING ON THIS EARTH, CAN PLUCK US FROM HIS MIGHTY HAND. WE HAVE GOD IN FRONT OF US AND FOREVER WE ARE IN GOD.

SERVE HIM. IN JOY, PEACE, LOVE, with full confidence that He who has called you will make good when He said "I will never leave you nor forsake you". We will pass through the deep waters and the fires and He will deliver us from The Great Tribulation (Rev.3:10). We serve our Lord and He loves us. Our life He holds in His hand and it caresses us as we travel closer and closer to His unbelievable GLORY!

Your brother in sweet bondage to Christ Jesus our Lord,

WHILE WE STILL HAVE BREATH
Your presence here on earth, the Holy Spirit inside, Jesus from above, we are for Him, His glory.
A living sacrifice, His church. When one is called, a loss is felt by all. The Lord, He knows the heart that cries. The funeral is but a monument in time. The soul and spirit rest above. His throne of grace, in Heaven's pure.
We are important to Him ! God in us. Our breaths for Him, critical. Keep breathing until He calls our name.
I heard a giant prayer from remains of a body without arms or legs! God hears. He wants us now! If not we would be Home
Paul stayed. He knew the joys of the 3rd Heaven! We will make a difference and be a light for Him. And when our breaths, they number few, He will let us know, and we will rise to Him, at breathings end, our testimony in hand, His love, eternity awaits His mighty call. A Jesus body, no more the tears and sorrows. No more the loss. Like Him!

Take up the cross and follow Him.
Our Kingdom, not of this world.
With blood tipped ears, contrite in heart,
The Holy Spirit empowers,
Distress, in bonds, in peace and war,
The streets of glitter call, the prisoners feel sure,
Their world of "more"!
We walk in Him, His word the might,
His love of lost, His sight.
There is no gain without His light.
Bottom lines do lie, goods seduce, bankrupt credit sighs.
What can we do? To win not lose!
We are stranger's passing through,
Where death conceals,
Where life is lose, "the great put on"!
By faith we live, in faith we die, His promises survive,
Streets of scorn, the "Gospel of the Get, Get, Get",
The bottom line, and Satan's makes his bet.
Throw caution to the winds. We hold the victory in Him,
A living sacrifice, His promises real,
In life forever, we are the blood soaked ones.

I AM A JEW IN JESUS CHRIST FOREVER
I am a Jew who believes in Jesus Christ. Does that make me a Messianic Jew? I don't know nor should I care. I know this:
God promised my forefather's that He would always set apart a small remnant of those who call themselves Jew's and they are the elect of Israel in the Church dispensation. So His called out ones, we know as His true church, will never NOT have a witness for Him during the church age! THE JEW WILL ALWAYS BE THE WITNESS FOUNDATION of the church! Not more nor less then the gentile(NON-Jew).

In old testament times they were the elect of Israel for their father's sake. They will be raised on that last day of the Great Tribulation to reign with Christ along with the 144,000 in the Israel of God born in a day, according to Isaiah 66.

I am a follower of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, a priest and saint, one of the elect, and a disciple of the Lord to the end.

But the Jew will always be a voice for Him to the world, as they were in Old Testament times, and in these times of grace.

The new work of God is this special time of GRACE, when God has made us His temple of worship. The age of Grace, the Church age. When we are taken up, then comes the end of what God started with Israel before we became, by grace, His Bride, the church. This is why the Day of the Lord and the Great Tribulation await the calling up of the Church. At that moment the church age ends and God completes His program for Israel and the world of unbeliever's.

God has made this much known to us in clear language. We understand it by the Holy Spirit. We are in One Spirit in One Lord God and Savior and Almighty Father. We are of one faith and should be of one mind. That is the great controversy! How come there is such division in church, in truth, in Spirit? In this we see through a glass darkly, but by faith we move on in LOVE, that is the mark of a believer, and the foundation of fruitfulness in Him.

One day He will tell us all. But now, God appoints minister's of His word, Pastor's, evangelists, prophets, and gives us gifts according to His perfect will.
In that we can have confidence. In Him we are assured that what He began in us He will complete according to His perfect will for us. HIS WILL WILL BE DONE!

THEOLOGICAL HERESY
As most know I am Chain, The Abalone Kid, and a Jew for Jesus. Let me share with you some of the costs of being born from above in Him that come as a direct consequence of the heresy of "Israel is no more" in Seventh Day Adventist proclamations as well as Roman Catholicism and other "Church" doctrines.

When a Jew believes in Jesus Christ, those of their family who don't come after, immediately say to themselves "This is a denial of our heritage". "This is a knife in our backs". "This is worse then Hitler, Stalin, and the Jesuits who combined ,murdered tens of millions of our people".
AND IT IS COMING FROM ONE OF OUR OWN!!!

You see, it is common knowledge amongst my people, this viscous hatred and this exterminating poison of the "church" with no heart, and no love, the "CHURCH" that THEOLOGICALLY USING SCRIPTURE, exterminates the heritage of my people and millions upon millions of unborn children with the weapon of mass destruction they claim is part of the teachings of The Gospel of Jesus Christ! The Jew is no more! Except if they come to Christ ON OUR TERMS! AND ISRAEL IS NO MORE PERIOD!

But this is false! A lie! that has been promoted throughout the ages. Who has stood up to it today? Look around. The Vatican, it's power over the world, the SDA, it's guru, ellen white, still rules from the grave! And their minions of over a billion people strong swear by these heresies. RIGHT HERE ON YOUTUBE there are many.

The Jew for Jesus MUST count the costs. It starts with a deep and abiding rejection by their blood family! This alone is overpowering. Then Satan comes in, and except for God's restraints, can and will assault the ones left behind in their heartache, their dismay, their loss of one of their own. He makes them suffer in anger, in disbelief, and their door closes shut . My reach to care, BUT no one there!

There is no distinction between Jew and Gentile in His called out ones. This is true. We are one in Him. And a Jew is a spiritual child of Abraham, as is a gentile. But I am still a Jew! A Jew who has been seeking out my new family ever since my blood was counted treason, by my flesh family, and an SDA and Roman Catholic said ISRAEL IS NO MORE!

Because of you, Lord, we live forever.
Because of you, non else will do.
Because of you we have a reason.
In your great love, Because of you.
Because of you, life never ending,
Because of you our faith abides.
How could we hate when hope rejoices.
Because of you our humbled pride.
No worldly fame could claim our joy.
For when we see your majesty awaken,
The gift of life a world begun.
Because of you the heavens Glory.
Because of you the battle won.
Because of you no fear can hold us.
Because of you, our Father's Son.

"FEED MY SHEEP" JESUS SAID
We have broken new ground. We have "fellowshipped" beyond our wildest imaginations. Loved each other in sincerity and His truth. As if from an ancient dream. We have taught each other, opened our hearts to each other, in this world of sacred time God has made available. What a gift!

Will we strive, in His Spirit, to feed, love, and be mindful of each other as we approach what will be another major turning point in all our lives? Will we rely on Jesus Christ more? We so need Him.

Let us go on, knowing that SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED to us, that we will never forget as long as we are here on Earth. We have loved around the world and spent a good part of our lives here, giving Him the Glory. We have shared His mighty Gospel with 1000's of other's. And He knows. His Book of Life will be the proof, and we, in joy untold, will hear Him say :

"WELL DONE, MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT."

WHAT IS NOT OF FAITH IS SIN.
Romans 14:23"...for whatever is not of faith is sin."
This is for all the super duper saints who waste their time condemning other's who are weak in the faith.
Your condemnation is not of faith. You are piling up a truckload of sin.
Ask yourselves this question:
How many sins have you committed today?


EVERYDAY IS THE LORD'S! Romans 14:6
You love Jesus Christ. Everyday is a day of worship!
What is this childish Saturday versus Sunday?
What is this mark of the beast nonsense if one worships the Lord on Sunday? Foolishness!

WE HAVE A HIGH PRIEST, JESUS CHRIST!
Our Salvation Is Secure In Him.
The Lord's death on the cross was the final offering to GOD our Father, for all sins past and future of those who believed before the cross and we who came afterwards to believe on Him as the Savior.

After ascending to heaven He sat at the right hand of GOD and began His intercession for us, by His Holy blood, power and authority, as High Priest over all the world. Only His blood does our Father see and not the sin's that so easily beset us. Thus there is no sin of a believer that will not be forgiven and made white by Him.

Come to Him and have your truthful talks. He is not unacquainted with our problems and our sins. He is the God man who was here, tempted by every means, and did not sin.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us" (1 John 1:9-10).

"Seeing that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we don't have a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:14-15).

TESTED BY FIRE
When we get to heaven and come before His throne in a salvation He insures, in that we are safe. But our works, AFTER being born again, will be tested by fire. Why fire? Because too many of us will have failed to abide in Him and our works will be founded upon wood, hay, and stubble.
They will burn up. No reward will be given. We will have wasted our precious time after salvation, after receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, after we died to our old fallen nature, after we had Him to love us and give His Spirit so we could live for Him

TONGUES
Have we ever heard from Jesus Christ that His salvation will be authenticated by speaking in tongues?

He said, we will know each other by the fruits that grow from the fellowship in His love we share.

I just can't understand someone who is speaking in a foreign language! It produces disorder in me. That is not what tongues are!

Tongues was a sign gift given to the early church. On that occasion of Pentecost after being baptized by the Holy Spirit they then were FILLED by the Spirit and these men could speak in languages that they had no ability to speak in before. And those who attended the feast of Pentecost from all over the Roman Empire heard their language and dialect spoken by the apostles. Acts 2:7-11

They were not speaking in some unknown tongue.

A sign gift! But there are many other gifts more valuable and they too will disappear. Prophesy is a real good one. If a person has that gift and speaks a language others understand could they be told, "No, your not saved" you spoke in English!

The tongue gift we need today is to tell people about Jesus Christ and His salvation!

WE ARE OVERCOMER'S IN THE LORD
I can't say I don't know this same exhaustion, this great desire to be done here and with the Lord, because I do.

We are in a period of mans history that is on the verge of such distress of nations with perplexity, such reckless abandon to evil, living in our country that has almost totally been sold out to Satanic principles under the guise of "Freedom", "Capitalism", and "Democracy". And worse, we are the self appointed leaders of the world functioning on a foundation of gigantic hypocrisy the likes of which I have never seen before.

It has troubled me to no end. Even though I understand scripture says we are to rise above the cares of this world, the flesh and the Devil, I too am exhausted by the march of evil through our world and our nation, cheered on by the profit motive and the peoples sell out in the "Church" as well as among the lost.

God is moving! We draw closer and closer to the rapture. The restraining influence of the Holy Spirit is slowly being lifted from the world and troubles claim more of our time, as well as the disease of self awareness of the terrible condition of our nation that will not get better, but only worse. America has been sold to the highest bidders. Drained of the chauvinistic spirit, replaced by "We will do this and that" and "I will do this and that" projected onto the people by the lame Political leaders of our time.

NO ONE HINTS AT THE TRUTH: "IF GOD WILLS, WE WILL DO THIS OR THAT!"

What can we do? We must dig in by faith. Not by our power or might, not by intellect or muse, but in Jesus Christ. For we are truthfully in a time in His-story when more then ever before His words ring crystal clear that, "My grace is sufficient, for my strength is made perfect in weakness" saith God our Savior.

We are weak! Especially those of us who are tuned in Spiritually.
Weak in ourselves! Weak in constitution, in carnal conditions, attacked by the evil spirits that surround us in media, movies, everywhere we turn except the Word. Even in the visible church, becoming more worldly and cheerleaders who have no shame for a slaughter we are guilty of, hiding under robes of self righteousness.

He is calling us. Our God is preparing us for the finale. Oh, it will not be according to our clock, but we are in it. We are at the door but we must not look to exit, we must look around us to see who we can bring to exit with us!

And for this we must be as much Him as we pray to be. Lord God, our Father, bless us. Strengthen our poor and useless natures to a Jesus strength, and nature. Grow more love and wisdom in us by the Spirit and give us the chance to be your great ambassadors wherever we are based by you, Lord. Fill us with joy, peace and a sure hope in Christ as we face these times. Your word will feed us and your grace will bring us home. Make a short work of it, we pray in His Holy name! Amen

My dearest, we will be in that number when the saints go Home.
Let's do it real good while there is still His light in this world through us and before the darkness overcomes.

SAINTS SUFFER BUT HAVE GREAT SECURITY
Why do His saints suffer? You accept this and well indeed! He is schooling you! You were His before your mother's womb bore you. HE LOVED YOU FROM BEFORE YOU WERE! He knew you when He made the world! This is true. Fantastic. Beyond the realm of our mind, but as true as you breath right now. And He owns your breaths. Your body, torn and hurting, is His. He has been in your pain and sorrows. He tastes all your emotions, your fears, your disappointments. He was with you when you came out into the world, and He will be with you when you go to Him and are here no more in this body of discontent, this flesh of problems never ending. He will greet you at the door. You will NEVER hurt again!

You are His. He had to wait patiently for you to believe You are His and He is your Savior, Redeemer, Lover of your being, hater of the Devils sin that infected all by Adam and Eve. He conquered your death. You will never die! When the number of your breaths He gave you for HIS GLORY ends you will breath FOR ETERNITY!

You are one of HIS. He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you. He has been waiting for you! He has given you joy, peace and eternity FREE. His blood washes you daily. His strength keeps you going. His arms engulf you all the time. He caresses you in your sleep. He delivers you from your enemies. You are HIS POSSESSION. The devils know it. You are a strange one. His name is upon you. He waits for you when you are not with Him in your trials, your broken body, your carnal self. He waits! He is always at your door.

His Spirit in inside your body. He will never depart. His grace is your bridal gift, His hand you will grasp one day and He will give you a wonderful new name that only He knows. It will be a name that exemplifies your love for Him while here in the desert of the lost world. The wastelands He will transform one day by His almighty power. Your name is in His Book of Life and your faithfulness recorded on your page in indelible print that God will read out loud before the entire congregation of His family of FAITH, His called out ones. OH GLORY! OH IMMEASURABLE JOY!

Your weaknesses He will use for His purposes. He has been waiting for you to fly into His arms in all your infirmities so He can demonstrate He is ALMIGHTY and HE KEEPS HIS WORD TO YOU. For in your incapacities, your pain that lingers, the futility of your body that is not yet fully a loving sacrifice for Him, HE WILL show you HIS POWER, HIS LOVE, HIS DELIVERY that will open up wide the curtain revealing a place you have not seen yet where YOU AND JESUS walk together! Where flowers grow from the bloodied earth beneath your feet, where praise erupts in the midst of the world around you that is buried in the graveyard of no returns. YOU WILL BE HIS LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OF THE LOST WORLD. His Spirit will make that real to those He will put in your path, those He has laid up for you to reveal HIM. Those who you will bless in His name. And you will do it from whatever the circumstances it is He has you in because He is with you. His strength is made perfect in your weakness. His love the height of His gift to you, the KEY to your ministries, the badge of your being in HIM.

Grieve not for yourself! Grieve for the lost. Love them. Reach out to them as a priest and saint, a faithful one of His. The Spirit will move you. Wait on Him. He will teach you. Open up His Word. He does not want you to waste your precious time. Let Him feed you. Be strong in the Lord and He will grow you like you never could dream. Don't be attracted to sensational stuff, thoughts and conclusions made by people who are not called by Him. He will teach you the truth. Then you will be able to know it and be free.

God's plans for this world are clear. We are the church. He has called out a people for Himself and given us His Spirit to dwell IN US AS HIS TEMPLE. You are His temple! A place of worship, fellowship with other's, a place of prayer to Him, of confession to our Father, a place He will cleanse daily by His blood. He is our High Priest above...until that moment when He calls us Home to Him...the out calling of the church(Rapture). John 14 1-3 which you have posted is that great promise of Jesus."Don't let your heart be troubled...I will come again and receive you unto myself, that WHERE I AM so shall YOU BE."(Emphasis mine)

REJOICE IN HIS LOVE

We face tough times. America is not calling. God is! You walk with Him, not by authority of the profit motive. What sustains us is Jesus Christ and our labor for Him. The dollar? It will dissolve. The house, it will be full and steady in Him. The food, a morsel a day giving thanks to God for Jesus will fuel you for action. A prayer prayed of appreciation to God, a praise from your lips.

Don't worry about what you will have if the market fails, and the river runs dry, and the money turns to worthlessness, for what you have is eternally laid up for you in faithful works that begin as soon as you rise up and thank Him for this day. He is coming and you will be called. That is the call you want, the voice you will need to hear. Not the foulness of this devils slang nor the lewdness of dead souls moving dead bodies in mesmerized gyrations good for nothing to Him.

Rejoice in the greatest treasure of the galaxies and beyond your wildest imagination. It's Jesus, our sure hope.

"Ye in me, and I in you" (John 14:20)

Perhaps one of the most profound verses in the bible!
The Holy Spirit unites all those who are in Jesus Christ.
By one Spirit we are one body in He who saved us.
In this oneness we love one another.
Without love, we care less for each other for we are not joined to Christ in truth, by water and Spirit.
We will be known by our fruits.
An other worldly need to be one in Him.
An unceasing desire to reach out in fellowship with our new family for His glory.
He is our focus. Those who come to us in Him were sent by God to meet, here, in the graveyard of this blood soaked earth, that one day He will reclaim, renew, and transform forever; the very earth He first formed. And we, His family of forever, will be by His side and know each other because we loved each other in the love of Him who dwells within us:
"...Ye in me, and I in you".
Are you a blood bought one? A member of His family? In love with Him?
And all those of the same Spirit?

WILL THE REAL CHURCH STEP FORWARD
Church is where the Lord is.
Its a ministry of The Holy Spirit through pardoned sinners.
DO YOU NEED A GOOD WASHING EVERYDAY BY HIS BLOOD HE PLEADS RIGHT NOW FOR YOUR SINS? 1 Jn.1:8-10
You are HIS Church, A called out one. In, but not of, this world.
You have been raised from the spiritually dead by Him and born again for His glory.You look for a better place Christ has built for you: The Golden City, New Jerusalem (Heb.13:14).
You are a priest and saint, a minister of the Gospel. God has called you out to serve Him at His pleasure. (1Pet.2:9; Rom.8:27).
YOUR SALVATION IS SECURE IN HIM.
Jn. 10:27-29, Eph.4:30

A HARD RAIN IS GONNA FALL
Dig in. Plant your feet in the word of God. Keep Him in front of you. Put on the armor. Ask GOD our Father for fillings. Remember Jesus and pray for the salvation of the enemies of the cross. Love them in the mighty love of Jesus Christ, the only way you can love them is in Him. Bind the wicked spirits that run wild around us. The blood of the children has risen up to heaven and God will defend His word. The insanity of man has ascended on high and the godless are exposed. They are so loud! God hears them!

A hard rain is gonna fall. But you who are under the wings of our Lord will be protected. His peace He has given you. You are guaranteed for eternity. Don't let your heart be troubled. But be ready.
Rejoice in HIS LOVE. He is coming.


NOT I BUT CHRIST
Not I but Christ who lives in me is no idle boast (Rom.8:1-2;Gal.5:16). It is the truth of being born again. We die in Christ daily. The old man in Adam is dead on the cross and the new man in Christ is alive by the indwelling power of The Holy Spirit. A dead life is conquered by real life and His Spirit will lead us closer and closer to Jesus and the life God has in store for us. So what would Jesus do is a good question to ask oneself before we do.(Jn. 17:9-17).

Finally, the greatest blessing is free!
"He that believes on me has everlasting life" (Jn.6:47).


KEEP THE FAITH
Faith is believing. To have faith in God is to believe Him (Jn.1:12; 3:16; 6:47; 20:29; Acts 8:37; Eph.3:17; 2:8; Gal.5:22).

The essence of faith consists in believing and receiving what God has revealed. It may be defined as that trust in the God of the scriptures and in Jesus Christ whom He has sent, which receives Him as Lord and Savior and impels to loving obedience and good works (Jn.1:12; Jas.2:14-2).

The gift of faith is from GOD by grace through Jesus Christ The Lord (Isa.28:16; 45:22: Jn.12:46; 2Cor.13:5; Rom.12:3; Mt.9:29; Rom.4:20).


RICH IN CHRIST
We are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1Cor.6:19).
Blessed (Gal.3:9).
A saint (Rom.1:7;1 Cor.1:2; Phil.1:2).
Holy and without blame (Eph.1:4).
One of God's elect (Col.3:12; Rom.8:33).
Established to the end (1Cor.1:8).
SALVATION GUARANTEED BY CHRIST (Jn.10:27-30)
Strong in the Lord (Eph.:10).
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might".
Dead to sin (Rom.6:2,11).
More than a conqueror (Rom.8:37).
Joint heirs with Christ (Rom.8:17).
Sealed with the Holy Spirit (Eph.1:13).
In Christ by His doing (1Cor.1:30).
Accepted in the beloved (Eph.1:6).
Complete in Him (Col.2:10).
Crucified and alive with Christ (Gal.2:20; Eph2:5).
Reconciled to God and free from condemnation (2Cor.5:18; Rom.8:1).
A fellow citizen with the saints and of the household of God and qualified to share in His inheritance (Eph.2:19; Col.1:12).

BECOMING MORE LIKE CHRIST
His love, in He who gave His life for us, we aspire to reach, that in OUR LIFETIME, we might kiss this dawn of forever, where love abides, through the slow extinction of the dead self we seek so badly for GOD to make disappear.

So that in trials, we rejoice in hardship, and see exposed, more of His glory, as we are filled with Him. For it is clear, His grace is sufficient, in our weakness, when He can move in us, then when we are dead to Him in self.

ONE CHURCH IN ONE LORD BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

The body of Christ is diverse. In America we are like a dysfunctional family separated by so many developmental differences, as well as doctrinal disagreements.

It is strange to me why this is so prevalent when we are born again of the same Holy Spirit whose ministries, though diverse, surely was to educate us with the truths Jesus would have us know for our edification.

Christ said we were to love one another with a love that was from our Father and Through His Son. The same love He received from His Father we could have being born again by Him.

But we are carnal. We are ambitious. We still see through a glass darkly.
Would that His love could reign paramount in the motivations of our time here on earth and find it's way into a resounding fellowship on YouTube that transcends the worldly church so many have abandoned.

Maybe we can set a good example.

He took me out when I thought I had it made.
He laid me down on a bed of affliction when I felt strong.
He emptied my pockets when I was full of stuff.
He gave me His Book when I had the N Y Times to read.
He put me on the street to live with the homeless.
He laid aside all my credentials of honor and self glory.
He gave me His word to wise me up,
And a new mind and Spirit Holy to Him.
Glory to the Lord!
I once was blind, He gave me sight.
I once was empty, He filled me up.
I once was dead, He gave me life.
Glory to the Lord.
Do you have your troubles?
Let Him show you the way.
Nothing is impossible for Him to do.
And if you believe, everything blessed will be yours.
Glory to the Lord.

A FALSE GOSPEL

When you believe in Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and the Holy Spirit enters you in baptism, that is NEVER lost.Without true conviction of sin, salvation may be in question. God knows His own. At that moment, we who believe in Jesus Christ, are baptized by the Holy Spirit. And once we are saved, WE CANNOT LOSE IT FOR OUR SALVATION RESTS IN JESUS CHRIST ( see again John 10:27-29; Eph.4:30; Heb 13:5)
Anyone that says a believer can lose their salvation is preaching a false gospel.

JESUS WILL TAKE US OUT FOR SURE

We who are His Bride, the church, are a special love gift to our Lord from His Father, known before the world was made. We are secure in Him. We will not be abandoned to suffer the judgments upon this lost world. It is not His way of loving. Not a brides engagement gift of love! How foolish to read His word thus!
It is Israel and the lost world God our savior will deal with at the end of mans rule on earth. That is done in 7 years called "The Great Tribulation", the latter half more deadly then the former. Don't listen to anyone who preaches the church will be in God's wrath. Send them to me and I will deal with them. You are His pearl of great price; He gave His life for you.
He will not let you down. He will not abandon you to caves and starvation and deadly judgments He will send! Nor to the devil in the Man of Sin.

OUR LORD DELIVERS

Jesus Christ delivered us from death, we shall not fear.
Our days are known to Him and our passing He will oversee.
He knows the faithful works we live by and the error of our ways.
He will deliver us from all our sins, and take us Home one day.
If we have some cares, the wounds of hate, a painful heart that beats,
He will deliver, He will uphold His majesty, and He in us.
His word is wisdom, life and hope, for us it is the food to store,
Delivered by His Spirit, we feast on it for sure.
Why do we miss the chance to grow strong, in the power of His word?
Why do we come and go uncertain, unrest deep within our soul?
Delivered by His love, let us begin to be,
What in forever more, in us, that He does already see.

BE CAREFUL TO DIVIDE GOD'S WORD PROPERLY

Brethren, be careful to divide the word of God properly. Our Lord has His Church, which He will deliver at the "Rapture" AND He has Israel which He will deliver at the end of the Tribulation. He has the old testament Saints and Tribulation Saints to raise up from there waiting place AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION. He will do this with great visible signs to the world that is still alive, and angels will assist Him.

BUT the church is a different story. The Rapture is NOT the resurrection I just spoke of in PT 1. The church is the church and Israel is Israel.
TWO DIFFERENT PLAYERS IN GOD'S PLAN FOR THE AGES. PLEASE STOP MIXING THEM UP! THE RAPTURE HAS NONE OF THE ABOVE! IT CAN HAPPEN RIGHT NOW AND THERE ARE NO SIGNS ASSOCIATED WITH IT! ONLY CONDITION IS THE COMPLETION OF THE CHURCH.
THAT IS WHY WE MUST BE ON THE BALL AND DO HIS WORKS.

WE ARE HIS BRIDE. The pearl of great price! While the nation Israel, today,is not in faith, God will bring her to faith in ONE DAY at the close of the Great Tribulation, and She will finally inherit all God's promises made to her forefather's.

YOUTUBE IS A BLESSING

I believe that fellowship is a command from God The Son. He said " For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them" (Mt.18:20).

Many have this blessing in a group meeting called a church. In fact, each of us is the temple that God dwells in, through the Holy Spirit. We are all saints and priest's of The Almighty through Christ our Lord. We are gathered here to give glory to God, and love each other, with a Jesus love. It is our Father's will for us.

Youtube is a blessing from God to we who love Him. It provides a means of fulfilling many commands our Lord left for our spiritual health. It is a golden chance to love each other in the Power of the Holy Spirit who, as we believe, can do wondrous works when we ask, and even when we don't, according to God's perfect will for us.

COMFORT

"So that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Rom.10:17.

"Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Tim.2:15

"But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you. (His Word) John 14:26.

THE GREATEST JOY AND SURE HOPE

Be assured, His will, will be done. But now we, in patient waiting, look for His coming, as we work His mighty works by His Spirit unto that moment He will call us from the grave or snatch us up to Him from a troubled and sin filled unbelieving world. And in anticipation of that greatest joy, to be with Him, let us work in love now, so that all who cross our path can know, beyond a scintilla of doubt, that Jesus Christ is Lord. See Book of Revelation Chap3 verse 10

WE WILL SERVE HIM AND HE WILL BLESS US

Today, in 2007, America is at a crossroads in history. Will she respond to the call of her Holy and Righteous God who is all powerful and merciful?
Will she stand up for the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and heed His word of truth that echoes down the corridors of time:
"...Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts" (Zech.4:6).
Who is America today?
Is she a beacon of God's light to the world? Is she listening to their plight and remembering that she is her brother's keeper (Gen.4:8)?
Can she be strong in the Lord "...choose this day whom you will serve...as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."(Josh.24:15).

I AM THE LEAST

I am the least of the brethren. But my Father saw fit to preserve me for His Glory and the glory of His Son. And though I stumble and fall too often and need the blood of Jesus to cleanse me daily I carry on for God's glory and stand up for Christ and His Gospel of Grace and Salvation. Thank you Father for this great blessing. (Rom.8:28-31; John 17:24; 1 John 1:8-10).

HOMELAND SECURITY

The FATHER, the SON and the Holy Spirit in the church of believers.
Thank GOD we have that blessed assurance. Whatever His will for each of us, we are going Home! Let's go,when we go, with lots of faithful works recorded on the pages of "The Book of Life".

Isn't this a wonderful blessing, this YouTube! Look how it can serve His glory! I am praying for them. No matter what they are, God is using them through us and they are a blessing to Him!!! And to us.

Perhaps our leaders here in America should go back to school and learn the right way, the truth, and who is The Life!

ELIJAH IS A MODEL FOR US

Elijah is a model for us. Didn't Jesus say that if our faith is present we can do great things for God as mighty as the Lord or greater? (Heb.4:16; Mk.16:17-18; Lk.10:17,19; 1Jn.5:4; Rom.8:37-39).

Will we ask for the full anointing of the Holy Spirit to do God's will? Like Jesus said: "Thy will be done". Do we have Elijah faith? Are we ready ? Are we looking up for that blessed hope who is Christ Jesus? Listening for His almighty voice? Do we have that armor on yet? (Eph.6:13-17).

In Him we are victorious and free (Rev.21:7; Jn.8:31-33). Be strong in Christ. He keeps his word!

THREATS

We are not intimidated by the enemies of Jesus Christ. We pray for them, that they too should come to His throne of grace and leave their bombs behind. Jesus loves you, a sinner like us. John 3:16.
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph.6:12).
...Fear not, for I have redeemed you,.."(Isa.43:1-3).
"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because greater is He that is in you, then he that is in the world."(1John 4:4).
"Peace I leave with you,...Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."(John 14:27)

TRUE PEACE

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."(John 14:27)

"IN GOD WE TRUST"?

"BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD" (Psalm 33:12)
SEE: http://www.theabalonekid.com/id55.html

By the grace of GOD, America is. We, who are His church, can pray that God will continue to spare us from His judgment. Ask forgiveness for all who won't ask. All who wont see. All who profess but don't confess.

And after the church is raptured, what then?
We must work His work in great Holy Spirit fillings and in His wisdom and love. Ask and you will receive.

WHY NOT PASS IT ON?

We are so blessed. One sows and passes it to you. Then you water and God reaps. We are a family. No one takes a bow . We do it for Christ's glory. We are doing a faithful work together. It matters not who initiates it. We are told that He is the vine and we the branches. We need to stop with this me, me, me, I see so much of. This materialism of self. This self importance.

GOD records our faithful works that we do together. It has equal weight with Him. Let us go on to maturity and get beyond self. Frankly, it grieves me to see HOW MUCH PRECIOUS TIME WE ARE LOSING.

If I say pass this faithful work on, why NOT. Is it unfaithful? Is it not biblical? Can't it help someone? ONE SPIRIT, ONE GOD and FATHER, the SON and The HOLY SPIRIT AND ONE FAMILY IN THEM.

One sows, another waters and GOD reaps.

MEDITATE ON THIS

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

THE BORN AGAIN BAPTISM

This is the most important baptism of all, it is the greatest experience this side of Heaven, and the only baptism that saves. It is the New Birth baptism, the point of salvation, when a genuinely repentant sinner first believes and receives the Lord Jesus Christ into their heart by faith. We become a righteous child of God, saved by God's unmerited grace and only by the finished work of Christ, His death for our sins and His resurrection for our eternal life.

This baptism is spiritual, invisible, but profoundly real. The new believer is taken out of the devil's realm and baptized into Christ by the Holy Spirit Himself. Out of the authority of Satan and into the kingdom of God. All our guilt, sin and shame are instantly removed by the grace of God. No longer under judgment, Christ's eternal life comes into our entire being, we die to their old-self, and begin a new life in Christ. We are sealed by the Spirit until the day the Lord calls us home.

To a faithful witness: There are those who give praise to our God and Savior yet deny Him His glory and the veracity of His word. They talk about how blessed they are while all the while they lead others into the pit of hell, where Satan lives and applauds their conduct.

Here are 4 examples where God is mocked:
1.Israel is no longer in God's plan because of their unbelief
2.Salvation is not a sinners unmerited gift of grace without water baptism by man.
3.The Holy Spirit will abandon a born from above child of God under certain sinful conditions.
4.Sunday worship is a sin.

Some right here believe and promote these lies. BUT you do not believe this...you believe God. Grace is unmerited and the Holy Spirit sent, not by any administration nor work of man; the blood of Christ saves and keeps saved; He never breaks His word to the church, to Israel nor to the children of Satan. His will, will be done.


NOTHING THINKS THEIR SOMETHING!

Their getting salvation from the church, buying it too often. Where is the respect, the adoration, the meekness, the love of Jesus that makes a blood bought one bow their head in humble adoration and whisper in a soft stilled voice, "Oh thank you Jesus, thank you Lord. I was bought with a price you paid. I was good for nothing with all the cash in my pocket. I smelled like dead fish, and you took the smell, and you took the big shot I was, and you took the filthy mouth I spoke with and you washed me clean in your blood and then you got up from that tomb and you moved that rock and you stepped out and breathed into my worthless spirit life forever, and gave me a real meaning, and set me down beside the still waters and restored my soul, and gave me a clean heart, and forgave me all my insults and all my vile words and my evil thoughts because of one thing, just one thing that I, too often forget...you loved a wretch like me! Oh Lord, a wretch like me!


WHO ARE THE "CHURCH"?

We are the church of sinners broken, crucified daily, in the air waves, a church rich in Him, in service to the word, the church of expression, of Love, the church that God prunes, who open our broken hearts for Him, the 24/7 church, His possession, free to express our praises to His great Glory, and that :
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
May the love of Him who loved us from before we were in our mother's womb, be in our everyday, to bless us and touch other's as we travel through this world at the speed of the Holy Spirit in us, towards eternity, in faithfulness to Him.


ONE ON ONE IN CHRIST AND BLESSED

This is what we can do here. Go one on one for Him, in love, joy, peace, long suffering, sorrows, and all that the Holy Spirit can move us to grow, in He who saved us.
We don't need big number's of how many are in the pews. Nor do we think about raising big $. His building is our bodies.
We meet here with little overhead! At any hour. Any day. Excited!
And time is not recorded on "Time Sheets", tallied every day by time counters. We are on His time! In works of faith, timeless.
We are FREE to fellowship every way we can. Spontaneous, forthright, biblically sound, as helpmates, one to one, not in bad taste nor a spirit of envy or dislike but in His Spirit of LOVE.
We are the church in the air, the church around the world, the church of expression, the church that opened the doors to Him, 24/7, His, free to express our praise to His great Glory, that :
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.

He Keeps Us Safe

Politicians don't. Insurance can't. Money is a lie ("In God We Trust"?)
Job, problematic. Health subject to failure. Power to retribution. Marriage to divorce. Your life to the unknown. Self to an unexpected breakdown. Your home to a natural disaster. Your country to the power of an enemy.

His love keeps us safe. Safe when we lay down at night and rise to begin another day in Him. Safe when we consider what is not safe. Our days are numbered by Him, the beats of our heart He counts, our health not measured by medical tests, our bank account in His book, insurance in His hands, our marriage He oversees, our life totally known to Him, our weapon, His Word and the Spirit, our state of being "Because He Is", our job, secure for His glory, and our destiny eternal in our family of Forever, secured by Him, paid by His blood, for by grace are we saved through faith.

He keeps America. He has a witness here!

The Last Christian

Nothing stands before the Rapture of the Church ,
But the last Christian known to Him, whose blood makes red turn white.
Are you the one to say "I do", in full belief, in sins you hate,
The last of His, the"Born again", to hear Him say "Just Come"?
Or will your faithful work bring home to Him His joy, His church, the bride.
With words of love, the you in Him, the Jesus in your eyes ,
The weeping for the living dead, your spouse, your long lost son!
Rejoice, His life is in you, be strong in grace, arise!
To work a work of faithfulness! Recorded on your page!
To lite the flame of universe, His will be done tonight.
Arise, armor well in place, to travel forth, to hear Him say, "well done",
I AM with you, and you, in me, are right.

I Cant Stop Loving Him

DID HE WASH YOU PURE?
HE SET YOU FREE!
DO YOU LOVE HIM?
HE LOVES YOU
AND DIED FOR YOU.
THIS SAME JESUS
HIS BLOOD
HIS BODY
HIS PROMISE
THE GLORY
OF ALL TIME.

GOD Hears "In Jesus Name"

There is one name under heaven that saves and that name is Jesus Christ. That is the only one we go to God our Father with in prayer. God does not hear us if we pray in any other name then His name.

Do we answer to any name but our own?
Can a name we decide to use instead of Jesus Christ, defend against spiritual enemies like Satan?
In whose name was heaven and earth made?
Whose bloody fingers clutched the terrible cross?
Who died and rose for our eternal life?
Who will call us home with His mighty voice?
Who has won eternity for us.
WHY DO SO MANY SONGS AND SO MANY "CHRISTIANS" HIDE HIS NAME IN FLOWERY PROSE AND SWEET MELODIES?
WHY IS OUR SAVIOR KEPT IN THE SHADOWS?
SATAN JUMPS FOR JOY AND BUYS A MILLION SONGS LIKE THAT!

BUT ABOVE ALL IS LOVE

Love is God. For love Jesus gave himself for us. He loved us first and placed within us His love in the Holy Spirit. He loved His enemies! Love is the apex of salvation and the shining star of forgiveness. Do we love him in all that we do? Love is a commandment and the Christians joy. Without, we are dull and empty, ineffective in the administration of our gifts.

Be Rich Forever

Beloved in Christ Jesus who is coming to call us up to Him.
You have a bank account up yonder whose books are kept by God!
You have the Holy Spirit in you who is ready, willing and able to work.
You have the blessings of eternity at the top of your balance sheet.
Donald Trump can't match the wealth you can store up while here!
Faithful works is the gold standard. You can have it everyday thru Him.
Here are some of the assets God lays up in store for you forever:
THE STANDARDS ARE:
(1)Our present life of faith (1Cor.4:3-5).
(2)Our conduct towards believers (Rom.14:10).
(3)Our service through the love of Christ (1Cor.3:11-15).
And when we see Him we will hear, "Well done my good and faithful servant".
THE CROWN OF GLORY
1Pet.5:3-4; Heb.6:10; Mk.9:41; Jer.31:16
AN INCORRUPTIBLE CROWN
1Cor.9:25
A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
2Tim.4:8
A CROWN OF REJOICING
1Thess.2:19
A CROWN OF LIFE
Rev.2:10; Jas.1:12

We Are Born Again Sinners Needing Jesus Christ

WE NEED THE BLOOD OF JESUS DAILY BECAUSE WE ARE FORGIVEN SINNERS
1 John 1:8-10 "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
WE SIN BUT DON'T PRACTICE SINNING. WE ARE DIFFERENT.
1 John 2:1 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous"
1 John 2:2 "And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."
Rom.8:1 "There is, therefore, now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus,..."

What A Savior

"Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace in time of need"
Thank you Father for our Lord and Savior, The Lion of The Tribe of Judah.
He is the author and finisher of our faith.
And He will never leave us.
He cannot fail.
Thus we cannot fall from grace.
WHAT A SAVIOR WE HAVE IN JESUS!
WHAT A FATHER WE HAVE IN GOD!

If Jesus Called Now Would You Go Home?

If you are born again in Christ Jesus you have assured salvation by
the seal of the Holy Spirit, by Jesus Christ Himself and our Father.
Not so say many YouTube "Christians". You can fall out of grace by sin!
They have chapter and verse to prove it. They are certain beyond doubt.
They make video's on it and write furious comments asserting it. SAD.
Some of them have over 100 video's they have made as "teacher's".
Some pride themselves on their "wisdom". They name His name daily!
I am sure they are NOT one of those NOT going "Home" at His call!
They are the leaders on the cutting edge of who is and who isn't!
And they have many followers who agree with them!
DO YOU?
WHAT SIN CAN'T CHRIST'S BLOOD MAKE SCARLET, WHITE?
SALVATION IS NOT TENTATIVE. BORN AGAIN IS FOREVER.

Breast Feeding Is Over!

"Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Those who are weaned from milk, and drawn from the breasts.
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little;" (Isa.28:9-10).

"And we beseech you, brethren, to know them who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their works sake. And be at peace among yourselves." (1 Thess.5:12-13).

God Takes Care Of His Own

It was cold. The brisk wind chilled my face as I watched huge Pacific waves hit the shore with thunderous roars while a residue of rain tickled my face. I was at my spot. Slippery and wet, the muddy trail was dangerous to hike. I decided to go down the cliff sidestepping like a beginning skier on a steep mountainside careful in each movement. To fall would leave me seriously injured and isolated from any possible help. I made it and breathed in the refreshing Pacific sea air. And right there, a few feet from where I stood, lay a big red abalone shell in all it's splendor, the biggest one I ever saw. Here was a treasure, a gift of nature, by God's command. I became "The Abalone Kid".

He Will Deliver

"I, also, will keep you out of the hour of the trial which is to come upon the whole inhabited world to test them that dwell upon the earth" Rev.3:10.

Are we on the threshold of that terrible time when God openly intervenes in the affairs of men which is called "The Day of the Lord"?

Many believers look around the world today and ponder whether these prophetic times will be upon us soon. For the church, it will be a great day indeed. For it is biblically correct to state that the Day of the Lord will be ushered in by the" Rapture" of the TRUE church.

Who Is The Church?

"And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ...According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus, our Lord," (Eph.3:9,11; Jn.14:20-21; Col.1:24-27).

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him"(Col.3:16-17).

"But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful (Col.3:14-15).

Who is the church of Christ? We fellowship together around the world!

Oh How We Need Jesus

Raise me up, oh GOD, and place your hand over my life to strengthen, guide and discipline me. Then I will know that my days are not in vain and my end according to your perfect will.

THAT DAY
Every time I see the sky, I see The Lord, His brush, His eye.
Every time I feel the earth, I sense The Lord, He stands beside.
The sea and mountains, oceans rage, a sun and moon in flight,
The hand of God, in truth I swoon, the grace of Him abides.
In streets of scorn, in children's cry, the in between of live and die,
In comfort pure, eternal life, He it is who'll end the fight.
In nations born, in pilgrims flight, I see the hand of Almighty might.
In war and peace does man remind that God is truth and we but strife.
Why is it that we come and go? we mourn, we try, forget and sigh?
Mortal now, one day we'll shout, "Praise the Lord" the day we rise.

HE WANTS US TO BE IN HIM AND KISS FOREVER.

His love, in He who gave His life for us, we aspire to reach in full, that in OUR LIFETIME, we might kiss this dawn of forever, where eternal love abides, through the slow extinction of our dead "self" we seek so badly for GOD to make disappear.

So that in trials and infirmities, we rejoice in Him , and see exposed, more of His glory, as we are filled with The Spirit. For it is clear, His grace is sufficient, when He can freely move in us, through our weakness, then when we are dead to Him in self will, and lost in the futile wars of our old mind, and our failure to grow on the truths of His Word .

Going Home To Glory

People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
Just a-get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesel humming'
You don't need no ticket, no no
Just thank the Lord

Keep The Faith

Dearly Beloved of our FATHER and His only begotten SON.
WHO SHALL WE BE?
THAT WHICH IS DEAD TO GOD? OR SHALL WE BE USEFUL? ON ONE CONDITION CAN WE DO GOOD. LAYING ASIDE THE BURDEN OF OUR UN-CONFESSED SIN, OUR INFATUATION WITH THE WORLD AND IT'S THINGS, IN THE WORD AND LOVE OF CHRIST MUST WE BE. WITHOUT, WE ARE A HARSH SOUNDING NOISE, IN THE EAR OF THE LOST AND THE FOUND.
May the love of Him who loved us from before we were in our mother's womb, be in our everyday, to bless us and other's as we travel through this world towards eternity.

In Him We Kiss Forever

His love, in He who gave His life for us, we aspire to reach in full, that in OUR LIFETIME, we might kiss this dawn of forever, where eternal love abides, through the slow extinction of our dead "self" we seek so badly for GOD to make disappear.

Fellowship For His Glory Acts 2:42

I love you in Christ Jesus the Lord. It is our blessing to communicate.

We strive to love each other and share our life in Christ so that we can help each other grow in wisdom, grace and a sure understanding of His word.

Thus we need to communicate. By the power of the Holy Spirit we will rise up in newness of strength, in joy, peace and our sure hope in Him who saved us.

We are in one family, one church, and under ONE GOD, who is our Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit. As ONE in GOD through Christ, let us lay aside trepidation, worldly cares, and all disputes in doctrine not becoming a saint, and love one another.

Let us communicate in a heartfelt manner for His Glory.

For His Glory

HE KEEPS HIS WORD.
NOT LIKE US.
HE KEEPS US IN HIM.
NOT LIKE US.
HE HEARS YOUR PRAYERS.
NOT LIKE US.
BUT LIKE HIM
FOR HIM ALONE
YOU WILL BE BLESSED.

Revival

LORD GOD, YOU MAKE REVIVAL. WE THANK YOU. YOUR WILL BE DONE. EXPOSE OUR SINS AND CLOTH US WITH YOUR REDEEMING LOVE. BLESS US WITH CONVICTION AND RENEWED STRENGTH. LET IT RAIN DOWN HOLY SPIRIT POWER TO LIFT OUR VOICES TO JESUS CHRIST, THAT WE, YOUR CHILDREN, CAN MAKE A NEW STAND FOR HIM, HERE, IN DEEPER AND MORE ABIDING FAITH. MAKE THE CRIMSON OF OUR CLOTHES PURE WHITE BY YOUR BLOOD. GROW US INTO MATURITY AND A LIVING SACRIFICE FOR YOUR GLORY.

COME, LORD, TAKE US HOME! WE PRAY IN YOUR HOLY NAME.

The Church That Woke Up

FOR SINNERS ONLY
WE NEED THE BLOOD OF JESUS DAILY BECAUSE WE ARE FORGIVEN SINNERS
WE SIN BUT DON'T PRACTICE SINNING. WE ARE DIFFERENT
SEE THE BOOK OF 1 JOHN FOR A GREAT REVIEW.

1 John 1:8-10 "If we say we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

If we say we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."

1 John 2:1 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous"

1 John 2:2 "And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."

Rom.8:1 "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

Father, Forgive Us

In "The Lord's Prayer" Jesus prayed

"...Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us..."

If we can't forgive, then we are in sin. That condition, if not corrected, breaks our fellowship with our FATHER until we do so. Christ's intercessory ministry in Heaven, with His holy blood that cleans us daily, will have been sabotaged BY US. And we will be in a continuing state of sin and loss of fellowship with HIM until we repent!

His Loving Touch

HIS LOVING TOUCH
Kiss the dawn of childhood dreams
The clinging hands, soft nursery rhymes
With newness now my way was blessed
No more caught up within my depths
I went and looked
I gazed upon this world
To catch the best and take the worst of it
And I came upon the natural things
In flowers touched and buttercups
My Father's loving touch
My Father's loving touch
In precious little
There is so much

Be filled with the Holy Spirit! Eph. 5:18
He will be coming for us.1 Thess.4:16-17
Pray for revival NOW!

Don't Be Troubled

If we believe God will send Jesus for His church in mid- trib or at the end after 7 years of world rule by anti-christ then we will be looking for this impostor rather then the Lord we love! We are to keep looking for "that blessed hope"who can come at any moment (TITUS 2:13). The church is not appointed to a time of judgment which the tribulation is for those on earth (1Thess.5:9). God will never send His wrath on those He loves, nor would Jesus command the judgments, as he does, during the tribulation, on His precious bride (John 5:24).We are to patiently wait with anticipation for the Lord (2Thess.3:5; Heb.6:12).

THANK GOD FOR JESUS OUR DESTINY IS HIM NOTHING CAN CHANGE THAT

We are the body of Christ(1Cor.12:12-13).
The church of the "first born" written in heaven (Heb.12:23).
Christ is our all in all (Eph.1:22-23).
We are His temple (Eph.2:19-22).
Like in marriage, we are one with Him (Eph.5:30-31).
His bride to be (2 Cor.11:2-4).
He will take us home to live with him in the "GOLDEN CITY" (1 Thess.4:13-17)

A Parents Prayer

I want my child to be free
To sing simple songs
In the chorus of brotherhood
Without the discords of ignorance
That drown out children's songs

I want my child to see clearer day
Breath deep God-given air
Smell the perfume of new tomorrows
Without being chocked by pollution's poison

I want my child to grow in love
Only care and concern can bring
I want the time to help fulfill these needs

I want God's hand to hold
The quiet secrets of my child's soul
And through wisdom allow God's song
To enter my child's soft dreams
In sleep undisturbed by fears

I want my child to love me
Not for what I want
But for the love I give
We are God's forever
I want my child to know Thee.

Safe In Him

"For The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord"
(1Thess.4:16-17).
FIRST HE TAKES THE CHURCH OUT THEN HE TAKES ON THE LOST WORLD!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL,

The Greatest Promise Of The Lord

IN THESE DAYS OF APOSTASY.

"But SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, may GROW UP INTO HIM in all things, WHICH IS THE HEAD, even Christ" Eph.4:15

When I presented a study of the fruits of the Spirit a while back and the importance of carefulness in taking into our "home" as an example, others, who purport to have Christ as their Savior, I was very cautious in what I said.
HERE is the PROBLEM:
Many people have no experience in a real Christian life and are what one might call "free standing outsiders" who, by their own designs have made themselves into little god's without any self scrutiny nor ever having proper discipline. They will not take sound counsel nor loving admonishment but insulate themselves from it, (even God sent ministers to them), with a hubris and self importance that defies the very basic principles of being in Christ.

Not just the lack of His love, which if present, would open their heart to sound advice or constructive review of their short comings, even error or heresy, but show no humility, nor selflessness and not the slightest inclination of self inspection when something is pointed out to them in His care and love. They are control freaks, not recognizing God remains outside the door of their heart seeking entrance to love and to feed them His food.

This is very telling!
In Christ means to evolve into an emptying of ones self, a loss of the dead self and all it's facets, it's awards, it's egotistic view of life and success, popularity, and becoming as Jesus, through being born into His image and His life FROM ABOVE. His life showed meekness, unselfish service and vain glory was not it's signpost.

IF, the Holy Spirit is in us and fills us, this reality will become manifest, or we will be the sorriest people on earth, LIKE PAUL EXPERIENCED, after he was saved(Yet he was powerless and most unhappy) because he lacked the filling of the Holy Spirit, not the baptism!

Baptism saves once and for all. Fillings empower for service, for developments, for ministry. Development of Christ in us comes from the experience of a Christ like life which cannot happen until we are "In The Spirit". That is a reality only when He is in control of our life, not when we control. Same old, same old IS NOT SALVATION IN ACTION. And disciplines are VERY IMPORTANT.
God says He disciplines us like a loving father would a son. If we cannot take spiritual disciplines we are bastard children.
Many poor souls who claim Jesus have no idea of what "Count the Costs" means as Jesus told us.

So we are here at Times Sq and 42nd St. We must be growing in fellowship, in wisdom, in love and strength He will provide BY HIS SERVANTS HE SENDS IN HIS NAME who exhibit, NOT a wise guy, holier then and smarter then thou disposition, but one grounded on being NOTHING except as Christ allows, and IN HIS LOVE. He sends the teachers and pastors OUT OF NOWHERE, and He certifies them by His wisdom and humility, and most important by THE JESUS IN THEM WITH HIS LOVE FOR THE BRETHREN...HIS LOVE! Selfless sacrificial LOVE.

And they will be true outsiders in the world system, and not self proclaimed ones. You will KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. And HIS LOVE in all it's manifestations will follow them as they live through His Spirit, who is Christ In Us forever. And "troubles" will be their middle name.

Keep The Lord out front. Before YOU do, pray and ask this question:
What would Jesus do and in what manner would He do it? If love is missing, a love for Him and ALL brethren, DON'T DO IT!

"LISTEN" MP3 Rom. 10:17
LISTEN VIDEO

Sometimes the ones we love the most don't know Jesus. Often they are our ministry and it isn't easy.

"Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom.10:17).

"Listen, you gotta listen, for times a moving and tomorrow may change our way"

Often a loved one of ours is not saved. Sometimes it is our spouse, even our child, a parent, or a close friend. We are in grief because they are lost. But God has given us this burden, not to grieve but to save.It is our ministry. Our blessing. Keep the faith. No one is truly lost until they go to their grave. Stay strong, this one is for YOU!

God is not willing that this person perish, but that he or she comes to repentance - 2 Peter 3:9.

It is God's will that he or she be saved and comes to a knowledge of truth - 1 Timothy 2:4.

This is the confidence that I have in Him, that if I ask anything according to His will, He hears me. And I know that if He hears me, whatever I ask, I know that I have the petitions that I have asked of Him. I ask for him or her to be saved, to come to repentance, and to come to a knowledge of the truth that can set him or her free - 1 John 5:14,15.

If it is a relative: I believe that I and all of my household will be saved - Acts 16:31.

I realize that I am not in a battle with flesh and blood, but I am contending against demonic powers, wicked spirits in the heavenly sphere, who are trying to influence and control the person I am praying for - Ephesians 6:12. Jesus said in Luke 10:19, "I give you authority and power over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall in any way harm me."

Whatever I bind on earth is bound in the heavenly realm, and whatever I loose on earth is loosed in the heavenly realm Matthew 18:18.

Right now I bind the god of this world (Satan) who has blinded their eyes to the truth of the gospel, and I loose the light of the gospel to shine on them and open their eyes - 2 Corinthians 4:3,4.

I pray that the eyes of their understanding would be opened to know the hope of their calling - Ephesians 1:18
Lord, open their eyes to know You; open their understanding that they can understand the scriptures Luke 24:31,45.

I pray for laborers to be sent into their path from the Lord of the harvest - Mt.9:37,38.

I believe that I receive the answers to these scriptural prayers - Mark 11:24.

Lord, You watch over Your Word to perform it Thank you that your Word does not return to you void, but it accomplishes what you intend for it to do - Isaiah 55:11.

RAPTURE BEFORE TRIBULATION VIDEO

Bible Study 2 Thess.2:1-12.
It is our Lord's will that His bride, who is the true church, baptized by the Holy Spirit, and thus "born again" from Spirit and the word, be comforted in the midst of grave deceit and pardonable error.

Satan would have us believe that scriptures such as this don't mean what the Holy Spirit said through the Apostle Paul.

THE WORD REVEALS HIS PLAN FOR THE BRIDE HIS CHURCH
http://www.theabalonekid.com/id42.html
http://www.theabalonekid.com/id106.html

A great division exists in the minds of Christians. Will the church go through any part of the "Great Tribulation" or will Christ call us out before that terrible time?
The second divide is our failure to correctly identify the nation Israel and Israelites who go through this terrible time, and the church, who are the bride of Christ in God's program for the earth.

Let us reason together and see why we will NOT enter into the"Great Tribulation".

Not before the church is removed from the earth can "The Day of the Lord" begin which starts with this event and is followed by the "Great Tribulation". Nor can Satan as "the man of sin" be revealed as on a white horse coming to deliver mankind from it's irresolvable perplexities until believer's are gone.

That time may be close. So let us look for Him and listen for His mighty voice as we serve His glory and His Gospel.See John 14:1-3 Video: "My Father's House"

Will waiting for "The Great Tribulation" and Satan as "The Man of Sin" give us comfort?

We look for Jesus Christ to call us out and Him alone! Who would have us look for the other?

"SEE THE MAN COMING" MP3 Acts1:11
When it's our time to go Home we won't see the Lord, we will hear Him. His great voice will call us up to be with Him.
What a day that will be! Reunited with all those who love Jesus. That is home, holy Jerusalem, the city built by God, without mans hands, for us (Heb.11:10).
But one day, after this, Israel and the world will see Him coming and it will be a great and terrible day indeed for those who reject The Lord. (Rev.19:11-16).
"I'LL MISS YOU"MP3 Isa.53:3

We love our enemies. Surely we grieve for those left behind and aliens to the loving Spirit of Jesus who pleads His salvations blood and our need day and night.
"What if I showed you I'll miss you"

ONE (The Great Mystery of The Church)VIDEO

The great revelation, hidden in the Old Testament, revealed by God to the world in Christ, through we who are His church.

One Forever
There is one church in every generation, His called out ones, His sheep. He will not lose even one. We give glory to GOD for His love and for His Son, Jesus Christ, who saved us from an unceasing death and the fires of eternal darkness.
(Our eternal security Rom.8:1;33-39; John 10:27-29; Heb.4:14-16)
God made us one. One in GOD The Father, God The Son and God the Holy Spirit who are ONE.
In a moment, on a day God only knows, Christ will call us home. Then we shall be ONE forever.

I support the ministry of any believer who is with the Lord Jesus Christ. You are, so I am for you.

There are ways that seem right to men but the end will be eternal separation from God. We who love the Lord have eternity thru him and every day He is our Redeemer and Savior. He is our credit line and our surety.

I salute you for your faith and righteous work for Jesus sake.

Grace shined on me and didn't leave a bill. Freely I received, freely I give for His glory, in support of your ministry and life in Christ. May it richly bless you AND those you share this with..

Rejoice In Love. He Will Come

FAREWELL TO BROTHER (CHUCK:"Soulrestorer")


Thank you for your love, the Lord blessed me through you. I needed it to fight the good fight, to forgive.
Thank you for the faithfulness shared, the heartfelt adoration, the information, the keys to so much of His truth.
Thank you for the pain you shared, the fellowship, the selflessness and the Glory He received in your works by grace.
You were not alone in the battle. Not alone in the pain. Not alone in all the victory's won for His truths in His love.
We were with you, for we are One, all of us here who appreciate you and love you very much.
Sometimes there was distance, sometimes there was strife, even the enemy would count their wounds and THINK!
The die was cast, His word Almighty, discomfort in abuse, in slander, in disrespect, but a moment in time.
We have eternity to rejoice, a House built for us to occupy, a sure promise of His perfect love, to be like Him forever.
There is a certain silence, a sense of loss that fills my heart. I know, the heart of other's well, they too, they too!
This is no death! No passing on, no flight! He has called you to another fight. You spar in Him, His light.
And what was gained exceeds the loss, for us both will not disappear, but in our hearts will rest.
Our brother must go on according to His will, and we who stay will pray, let it be perfectly done through YOU!


FATHER, MOTHER, CHILDREN

You stand on His foundation given for a healthy society for all, saved and unsaved. Beyond the realm of the failure, in general, in our nation to guard against attack on this sacred union and apparent lackluster encouragement in spirit and in attitudes of governance of the critical work of the mother and father in the making of the home a place of worship and respect, we see the Lord's blessings exposed by example in love,teachings and care, sacrifice, even unto death, for the sanctity and the safety of the children and each other who have authority over them under God.

You are a soldier in Christ, a beacon of His light and the substance of His life He blessed you with while you go about your days and even into the night where you don't sleep as other's sleep, still on duty, ever on duty, for all the loved ones He has given you to care for. The most important work that I have ever seen in my life!

My mother passed in 1980. I was by her side until I could not take it. She was already in coma and bleeding through the mouth. At 73, she was ready to meet the Lord. Esther, my mother was Esther, and as devoted a woman as the Esther of Olden times who saved her people single handedly by God's command. And she loved me right to her last conscious breath!


All my life she was for me. Up first, last to get in bed. Even when I moved back with her while I attended Law School in Brooklyn, where I grew up, she was at the door when I would get home late at night after 9 hours of study in the law library. She fed me! She had my bed prepared! And in the morning she was up making breakfast and gave me a lunch to take to Law school! Just like she did when I was a little boy in Elementary school! I was still her little boy! And under her wing, her love, her care, I made it through and went on to be a credit to her as a lawyer in NYC, different, but well respected.

When God called me and I eventually retired after 12 years of law and many credits, she still came to my side, even though at first it was very hard for her to understand why I was reading the bible and setting the law books aside! She saw me as a senator and a Judge, a man who wrote books on law and was followed by the world systems to pick my brain in my chosen field. She saw me as a huge success in Law. And in the end, when I had grown in His wisdom, and spoke of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, my Jewish mother began attending church! And somehow, I believe, she understood her son would now be for God what God wanted me to be, and not for law but by grace, for grace.

Oh how I miss my Mama! And my father as well.


STATEMENT OF FAITH


1. I believe the Bible is the inspired, and only infallible, authoritative, Word of God. That it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. Any one coming in His name whose testimony differs from this is not to be welcomed. Any claiming a personal revelation from God that is not verified by scriptures is not to be given the right hand of fellowship.

2. I believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, and His miracles; that His vicarious and atoning death, through His shed blood, is efficacious as the basis for reconciliation between a holy God and sinful man. I believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His high-priestly intercession, through His blood, for His own, and in His personal and visible return to earth in power and great glory.

4. I believe that all are born in sin and that conviction of sin and belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ is absolutely essential for salvation.(Jn.3:16).

5. I believe in the present ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who has come to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, of judgment, and by whose baptism we are "born again". I believe by whose indwelling the Holy Spirit enables a Christian to REPENT (Ongoing) AND HATE THEIR SIN and live a Godly life. I believe that once we are sealed and entered by the Holy Spirit our salvation is secure in Christ.


6. I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. There is no destruction of the soul called Annihilationism.

7. I believe that Jesus Christ is the only Head of His church, and that all true believers are united, as members of His body, by the Holy Spirit.

8. I believe in The Gospel of The Grace Of God.

9. I believe in the Gospel of The Kingdom that will be preached during the Tribulation by saved Israelites, and gentiles they convert, and the Kingdom that God will set up through Christ on earth according to His promise to David. It will be centered in Jerusalem. This kingdom will be ruled by Him and last 1000 years. I believe scripture tells us we will assist The Lord during this time and will dwell in New Jerusalem, the golden city of GOD.

10 I believe The Everlasting Gospel to be proclaimed during the tribulation of judgment upon the wicked. It is good news to suffering believers during this period as it heralds their coming deliverance and reward. One can rest easy who is in Christ before the 7 year tribulation begins. You will not be on earth for that one. It is a terrible time of judgment and God's wrath. I believe the church is not appointed to wrath, nor judgment. It will be called up by Christ as promised in Jn.14:1-3.

Thank you for taking time to read this and be the brethren you can be in this time of our life together in Christ. You make me very happy. When I was growing up and friends or family came to my house my mother would always feed and make them comfortable. I want to do likewise. May The Lord richly bless you and fill you with The Holy Spirit that you received when you believed. This is what we need! This is the food that will keep us strong.


A TIME TO PRAY
.
We pray for all the world, that no flesh should be absent from His throne of grace, and without His Holy Spirit that is given those who believe on Christ. To the Jew first, then the gentile, our Lord brought His sacrifice for all sins and His gift of eternal life that is by grace from God through faith in Him.

Today, let us set aside any hardness of our hearts lest we forget the Love of Christ for the worst of sinners, and pray for all peoples of the world in the truth of what we know and believe. Jesus our Savior is our High Priest above and His blood keeps us saved as well as saves those who seek Him in truth. Catholic, Protestant, Seventh Day Adventist, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, all those who name the name of Jesus Christ and all the world that does not believe on Him...let us ask God to bless them all with a saving faith before He calls us Home.

And each of us, for one moment in our time, pray, in His loving Spirit, that His will be done in our lives as well as all the lives in all the world, not certain now that God will judge one or another in sin, but in His endless love and mercy, ask Him :"Let thy will be done Father, on earth, as it is in Heaven. In Jesus name we pray." And be confident our God hears the prayers of His children with Christ as Lord in their life. And be free of animosity, bitterness and scorn. Deeming ourselves not greater then the ones we believe will die the second death, without Christ, though profess they may this faith.

All those who are part of the hate campaign now going on in ascribing to the Pope the title of THE anti-christ, I suggest you step back and think again. If you maintain this biblical position then you are agreeing that WE ARE IN THE DAY OF THE LORD and THE GREAT TRIBULATION ...RIGHT NOW.

What are we doing in this time of God's judgment on the earth? Where are the Four Horsemen of Revelation. Where is the white horse rider who makes WAR? Where is the false church that incorporates all non-believers who claim belief in Christ..the apostates? Are you in hiding? No? Are you in persecution? No? Risking your life for the truth? NO?
Where is the seven year peace pact with Israel allowing them Temple worship and the renewal of the blood sacrifice of animals for the peoples sins? Where is the Temple? In Jerusalem? NO. And anti-christ as the broker and guarantor of this pact? He is not here yet.

Oh, you think it's The Pope? Are you prepared to argue that to God?
IN THE NOW MOMENT FOR HIM
Think of it, called for His glory NOW. Awakened from our death sleep we thought life was about. NOW! Together in Him NOW! Fellowshipping in great and exceeding joy, and love NOW!

Oh Happy Day, when Jesus washed all our sins away. Who can know the heights and depths of His wisdom and His majesty? Who can know His great power and glory that shines more brilliantly then our sun? We see it but through eyes that cannot see, yet by His grace we see, and a mind that cannot comprehend, yet by His Spirit, we comprehend. We listen to the sounds around us, and hear through ears that have lost their tune since Adam fell, yet He hears in us, and makes it as clear as possible by the ear of the Holy Spirit. We cannot know all the languages on earth but we know His love!!! And what is not dressed in this eternal gift, this piece of Him He gave to us, this blessed fruit, will whither and fade away, even prophesy and tongues, parables and all else will be completed but the eternal language of His Love will live on in US FOREVER~!

We are one; one Spirit that forms our church; one Lord that saves us; one GOD and our Father who loves us from before we were in our mother's womb.

How great thou art dear LORD...how great thou art.

You are my beloved brethren and heirs to eternity. I can't wait to embrace you all. I love you very much in Him and will care about you as long as I have breath.

Security Now And Forever

"Don't let your heart be troubled..." (John 14:1-3)

"Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which is about to come upon the whole inhabited world, to test them that dwell upon the earth" ( Revelation 3:10 ).

Small Talk (1Sam.2:3)

The big shots have countless followers who fill their pockets with millions and more. They make sure to mention God and, as if they have some eternal connection, appear so sanctified. They come in all forms and walks of life including the clergy. Often proud and self-assured they strut and fret their hour upon the stage as greatly blessed of God. Why don't they give their wealth to the poor as Jesus suggested and follow him? (Lk.18:18-27).

Sin
"WE KILL OUR NEIGHBOR
WITH THE GUN OF OUR TONGUE"

Anti-Life
"Can't stop it we muse
Just like the T.V tube.
We watch it here
We watch it there
To act, we're all confused".

Eulogy
"In fields of your brown soil Lord,
His crystal rose was born in perpetuity,
And the earth of his body,
Holds gardens of petal sunsets,
For wildflowers that stand and sigh."

Jesus Christ Is God

(1) "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was" (John 17:5).
(2) "Father, I will that they also, whom thou has given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou has given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world" (John 17:24)
(3) "Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began" (IITim. 1:9).
(4) "But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory" (I Cor.2:7).
(5) "In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began" (Titus 1:2).
(6) The Lamb was slain in the purpose of God before the foundation of the world;"Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you" (I Pet. 1:20)

"I Forgive"

The Lord is a Lord of love and forgiveness. He is a Lord of truth and knows the hearts of men and the guile of the Devil.
He is a lamb for those who come to Him for deliverance from sin. His blood makes white the scarlet stain of sin.
No one is without the need for Him. Few accept His Righteousness but prefer to remain in their own "rightness'.
He is attacked and vilified. He is called a liar. His words are refuted. There is always some reason they give. It all sounds logical. He still says "come unto me you who are burdened with sin and I will give you rest. My yoke is easy and my burden is light". He died a terrible death for all who reject Him. HE lives for those who accept His finished work, His love.

It is a foolish person who feels comfortable in the all too deadly sin of finding fault with Him.
But He will always say, "I forgive".

If We Can't Forgive!

If we can't forgive, even our enemies, then we are in sin. Were we not enemies of God before we were born again? Don't we have the Holy Spirit in us and Christ's love? Until we forgive other's, our fellowship with God, in Christ, is broken. We cannot please God our Father. Christ's intercessory ministry in Heaven, with His holy blood that cleans us daily, will have been sabotaged BY US. And we will be in a continuing state of sin until we repent! Salvation is safe in He who finished the work, but not until we forgive can we serve in the power of His Holy Spirit. Only then can revival begin.

Let The Word...

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him"(Col.3:16-17).

To Know Jesus

I want to know Jesus Christ and the fullness of His Spirit. I want to love you in the love He gives and for you to know me through Him and my love for the church who love Him and serve for His glory.
This is the life for me. This is why I exist. Be blessed. He loves us all the way to HOME. He will NEVER leave us without His comfort nor will He ever rain down His wrath on us no matter what anyone says.

Holy Father Almighty

Beloved in Christ;

Oh, HOW WE NEED JESUS!
Our FATHER, send revival.
Try us to find us worthy.
Forgive our sins to make our hearts into a Jesus Heart.
Discipline us so that in our momentary sorrow
great joy and comfort can be born.
Fill us with the Holy Spirit.
Make us giants for Your Kingdom Come,
and in your service right now,
and right here
where you have placed us.
Holy Father,
we pray in His name,
who will call us Home
any minute YOU chose.

Count The Costs Phil. 3:7-8

At 29 I had no idea God was directing my life and one day would call me out to live as one of the homeless in America ,ministering to bag ladies and "bums" of whom I was chief.
The hand of our Lord is upon us before the world was made.
Blood family, judges and lawyers of the highest positions, record companies and top musicians, friends of long standing, even those in the work a day world I met treated me as a leper, a man who lost his marbles.
Rejection was not enough to lure me back. The Lord strengthened me. I fed 80 homeless a day from dumpster food I retrieved behind fancy food markets. I delivered discarded bouquets of flowers to the bag ladies I sang praise songs to at 6 am walking down the streets of glitter and scorn in downtown LA. They were my congregation.
Here was my training field. I learned the lessons of the Holy Spirit that in becoming nothing in the world, I became someone God could use for His glory.

Every Son And Daughter Of God Has a Testimony

Oh Lord, most precious. Providing us as you see fit. You take the spoil from the enemy and free the prisoners. You are a lion in the midst of all beasts, like the rising of the sun in the hot of summer. We praise you. Only you are worthy.
We rejoice as we wait for God to come, for Shiloh to return. The sleepers shall awake and the living surely shine on that glorious day of our Lord. Oh praise Him all you saints who love the Lord, our redeemer and our victory.
The Lord is kind and merciful. He adorns us with robes of righteousness and a new heart of love. He sanctifies and ministers to us. He is great in the congregation and His comfort shall be from everlasting to everlasting. God our Lord, we pray in your Holy name. Amen

I Go To Prepare A Place For You

The Lord will , one day, escort us into a city he has built for us called new Jerusalem. From there we will follow him throughout the galaxies in love. There will be no more tears or sorrow. Death will have been vanquished. We will be perfected in Christ forever.

"There was no sun, nor moon,
And neither was there night.
The streets, pure gold,
And gates of pearl.
Gods glory was the light."

"...I go to prepare a place for you..." (John 14:1-3)

"And I John, saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband"(Rev.21:2).

"For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come" (Heb.13:14)

Forevermore With Jesus

FOREVERMORE
I'm feeling love from once before
His timeless touch, His endless shore
An ancient whisper, a poems rhyme
In the rhythm of His time
And He loves me, and it seems
Like the heavens and a dream
The Lord of Glory is His name
Painted portraits in my mind
Can't begin to say how kind
By His grace and through His love
Gave us life from up above
That blessed day forevermore
When He calls us home to stay
In the twilight I still pray
For the dawn of our new day

Back From The Dead

All of us who believe on Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior have come back from the dead. We have died to the sin caused death and been raised with Him into a new life by baptism of The Holy Spirit. From the graveyard of the world we entered into His glorious life and we know it as we know the palms of our hands because God lets us know!

So then we who once were dead must return as alive in Him to let it be known that in The Son of God is the way, the truth and the life. This is the vital message we are to lovingly provide.

The great Apostle Paul said God forbid I should know anything but Christ crucified (for our sins) and risen (for our justification). Eventually he died for the truth of the gospel.

Have you mingled with the dead? And have you treated them well my brothers and sisters?

Our Salvation Guaranteed By Christ

"...Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood..."(Rev.1:5).

Jesus keeps us in grace, we do not.
It is His blood our Father has accepted for all our sins.
His blood keeps us in fellowship as we confess our sins daily.
It is true the Holy Spirit will comfort, teach, and empower us for real service, but we still sin by virtue of our fallen nature.
God is gracious to forgive us our sins as we confess them through Jesus Christ and our fellowship with Him continues.
Salvation is never lost.
God's eternal gift of everlasting life comes to us by the completed work of Christ.
We cannot fall from grace because He cannot.
He is the author and finisher of our faith.
And He will never leave us.
He cannot fail.
WHAT A SAVIOR WE HAVE IN JESUS!
WHAT A FATHER WE HAVE IN GOD!

BUT WE CAN LOSE OUR REWARDS by sinful acts un-confessed and lifestyles that are worldly. That would be a pity.

Be Like A Little Child

Jesus loved the little children. He blessed them. He commended their childlike faith and told us to be like them. Mk10:13-16
If a child is taken before the age of accountability that child goes to be with Him. The little soul destroyed in the womb goes to Him.
Would God leave them here to be destroyed in "Great Tribulation"?
And take those in their family who believe? I think not.

Nothing Became A Man

Why do we waste our precious time at war?
Do we think He needs that?
Contend for the faith in love.
With His Joy, Peace and a sure Hope.
Disarm the enemies of Christ in humility.
Do not draw the sword.
Do not rail against the Devil.
Even the Archangel Michael did not.
Christ has won already.
The times are His.
The earth He will rule.
He is coming.
He is near.
He is in you forever.
Rejoice in His LOVE.

Everything Good In His Love

"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding bronze, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophesy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing"
From 1 Cor. 13th Chapter Saint Paul

Perfect Love Casts Out Fear 1 John 4:11-21

Praise GOD all you saints and priests. You believed the gospel and were chosen by God The Father for His Son.
Your Father loves you and made you heirs of eternal life through the blessed Savior, Christ Jesus our Lord.
It is a good time to serve.
God loves us as nobody loved us.
We are nothing without His love.
If love is in our life's work for Him, we strive in perfection.
Reach out beyond the reality of this lost world and love somebody.
Tell them the truth about Jesus, the mighty Savior of the world .
In that, there is great love.

Make War In Love

Mt.5:43-48:
We express our love giving out the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Not by warring.
In His love, refute the lies. Better we love them with His wisdom and truth and His heart of eternal love. "Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us" .
And when they lie about Jesus feel sorrow, for they shall never see Him, but in darkness and fires they will dwell forever, if they die in their sins.
Luke 6:27-32
Rom. 12:17-21
Like Steven, the first martyr of the church, full of The Spirit, who said, as the Jews were stoning him to death:
"Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this he fell asleep"( Acts 7; see esp 7:54-60).

This is our time to love (Eccl.3:8). To be examples. (1 Tim. 1:5). Don't rejoice when an enemy falls( Prov.24:17-20; 25:21).

If we cannot war in love, only with distaste, i better we stay home until we can.

We Are His Example

All nations are lost. None are righteous, not one. But let us be an example in Christ. Cherish His hope, it is sure. Abide in His love, it is pure. Stand fast in His word, it is truth. Give what is dearest, it is for Him. Be filled with the Holy Spirit, it is His wish. Live for His glory, it is ours in Him. Keep hope eternal, of this we are assured. Look up and listen for His call, He keeps His word.

A Faithful Word Indeed

YOU ARE HIS
You were His from before the earth was made
His to bless His heart of Love
You were His to give Him the glory
His while you waited in the womb of your blessed mother
Your days were known to Him
Your faithfulness guaranteed
The hairs on your head counted
Your breaths measured
Your life in His hands
You were His for eternity
His when you first awoke from a death's sleep
His in your moments of doubt
His in the battle
His when you rise and lay down
He will never give you up
You are His precious possession
His no matter what transpires
His in the New Jerusalem
You are His in love forever

Salvation Is In Christ's Grip

Q) I am miserable. I failed the Lord many times. I know he forgives my sins and his blood cleans me daily. Help me to overcome this guilt.

(A)Your salvation is secure in Christ. You are, like Saint Paul, having a bad time of it. Confess your sins and renew fellowship with Him. Paul cried out:"O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" (Rom.7:24). Does this mean he lost his salvation? No, listen to Paul in Romans 8:1: "There is now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
All of us have failed God at one time or another. And all of us have sinned after we became Christians. In fact God tells us, "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us" (1 John.1:8).

Saved Forever

Scripture used by some claiming you can lose salvation:
Mt.12:30-32. (Unpardonable sin)
Christ was being accused of performing His mighty works through the Devil. It was the Holy Spirit in Him that did it. Thus by doing this they rejected their only hope, Jesus Christ. That is not applicable today. Christ will forgive any sin until that person breaths their last breath.
Jesus said that in Jn.10:27-28 a believer receives eternal life WHEN THEY BELIEVE.
And He said He will not lose one of His sheep

Heb.6:4-6 (loss of salvation through conduct)
Here we are told that a believer can fall back so far as to lose their "rewards" but not their salvation.
Verse 6 speaks NOT OF SALVATION but of REPENTANCE.
They are so far gone they cannot repent. It says nothing of loss of salvation. Repentance precedes service and service is the key to rewards.

He Will Not Leave You

More scripture they give to deny Christ's salvation is final for a believer.
Heb.10:26-29
This is aimed towards professing Jews who maintained their rituals of Judaism while at the same time professed to believe on Messiah.
They were actually offering sacrifices in the temple! By this they were denying the FINAL sacrifice for all sin Jesus had accomplished.
Receipt of "knowledge" is not being born again. They were hearers only and not believers.They were willfully sinning by this and in so doing were rejecting the only remedy for their sins which was His sacrifice EVEN THOUGH THEY HEARD THE GOSPEL AND HAD KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. If they turned from this they certainly could be saved.
Rom.8:1;33;34-39
It is impossible (for man) to renew them... BUT not God.

Let Us Be Lovers Of Him And Each Other

Dearly beloved in Christ our Lord. Let us show kindness, one to another, looking out for each other's welfare according to His word, in a manner not unbecoming a saint of God.
Let us love each other in His love and show the lost the Spirit in the saved.
For we were bought with the precious blood of God our Savior.
Let us live then, mindful that, but for the grace of He who saved us, we too would be lost forever in the deadness of our sins that so easily entrap us, that He has delivered us from, into a new and eternal life through Him.

His Word In You

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him"(Col.3:16-17).

Walk In The Light

"If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1:6-7

God Will Use Your Weakness

2 Corinthians 12:9-11

"And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

Safe In Him

"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one" (Jn.10:27-30).

We Will Serve The Lord

In Luke 9:23 the Lord states the imperative of a believer who lives through Him: "...If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me"(See Mark 8:34-38)

Jesus is our first love. He loved us before we were in our mother's womb. He gave Himself for us so that we will live forevermore in glory with the family of Christ in the presence of God. He gave us life here, His life, through His Spirit, that will never leave us, no never! How is our life? Are we seeking to live it through the blessings of Christ or in the "I" of self?

"Now, therefore, fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the river, and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.

And if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"(Josh.24:14,15).

One Forever

There is one church in every generation, His called out ones, His sheep. He will not lose even one. We give glory to GOD for His love and for His Son, Jesus Christ, who saved us from an unceasing death and the fires of eternal darkness.
(Our eternal security Rom.8:1;33:34-39;John 10:27-29;Heb.4:16)

God made us one. One in GOD The Father, God The Son and God the Holy Spirit who are ONE.

In a moment, on a day our Father only knows, Jesus will call us home. Then we shall be ONE forever.

Everyone In America

"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God ... and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord. ... We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation ever has grown, but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own." President Abraham Lincoln

He Is With Us

Isaiah 43:2-3, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; When you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."

Because Of You, Lord

Because of you, Lord, we live forever.
Because of you, non else will do.
Because of you we have a reason.
In your great love, Because of you.
Because of you, life never ending,
Because of you our faith abides.
How could we hate when hope rejoices.
Because of you our humble adoration.
No worldly fame could claim our joy.
For when we see your majesty awaken,
The gift of life a world begun.
Because of you the heavens Glory.
Because of you the battle won.
Because of you no fear can hold us.
Because of you, our Father's Son.
