America After The Rapture?
First let's consider these biblical truths:
1.The presence of Jesus Christ on earth is in the collective body of believers
around the world.
2.The presence of Satanic demons is in all areas of the world.
3. The Holy Spirit is God's presence,
in the church, that restrains the march of evil spirits to destroy mankind.
4. Satan hates Jew's and Christians most and
all other peoples after them.
5. There are more Jew's and Christians in the USA then any other nation.
6. The restrainer who is God The Spirit has His greatest presence in the USA.
At the Rapture, with the Christians removed, evil will have it's full day so to speak.
8. The USA will be overrun by demonic
forces that even now, God is allowing more power to affect, then ever before in our lifetime. With the endorsement of unfettered
abortion and the legalizing of the sin of homosexuality the dye is cast.
9. Our policy of Peace in the middle East and
warm hands extended to sworn "spiritual" enemies will usher in greater judgments. SPIRITUAL ENEMIES IN DISGUISES OF WORLD
10. THE TOTAL BLINDNESS OF OUR LEADERS AND AUTHORITY TO SPIRITUAL REALITIES THAT ONLY THE BIBLE CAN
No 10 is the greatest threat to the survival of our nation. For we are most
hated by demonic forces held in check by the saved Church and the presence of The Holy Spirit in it. Now that is slowly coming
apart. God is lifting His mighty hand from above and this nation is experiencing greater demonic infestation. The front pages,
even of the secular papers, expose just some of it! The AIR IS FULL OF GREAT TENSIONS AND DECEPTIONS WITH GREAT GUILE.
Once we are Raptured evil will reign in almost total self will and in power.
"PEACE" will be declared and Israel will be on the thresh hold of almost total destruction. And the United States of America
will have played a vital role in history violating God's will for her, and totally in a state of spiritual apostasy, but with
a false mask of religiosity and "peace" making, disguising the most war like spirits mankind has known. WE WILL BE A NATION
THAT TRANSFORMS ITSELF INTO THE MOST ANTI-GOD APOSTATE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.
Are you seeking God now and the fillings of the Holy Spirit?
seeking the lost in your domain, your block, your community?
Is the love of Christ written across your being and His word
of truth in your mouth?
Are you in full battle gear with the armor of God upon your frail bodies?
IS THE WORD OF GOD IN HIS BIBLE YOUR GREAT AND MIGHTY SWORD???
The enemy would rip you apart if your bare and exposed, OR cuddle you into
a deaths sleep under the influence of some GURU here on Youtube who says "FOLLOW ME"..."JESUS TALKS TO ME NIGHTLY"...a SPECIAL
Don't be fooled, my beloved's. Each of us will give our account to Christ
at His Bema seat above, not for salvation, but, in the presence of ALL BELIEVERS OF ALL CHURCH AGES, for rewards or failures...into
Those of you who contend the church will be on earth for all or any part
of the Great Tribulation of 7 years, the second half the worst in world history, THINK AGAIN! Remember our Lord's words IN
HIS BOOK HE DICTATED TO THE WRITERS THROUGH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: "Don't let your heart be troubled...I will come
again and receive you UNTO myself so that where I AM, there you may be also". We "ARE NOT APPOINTED TO WRATH".
And think about this: can you explain how Satan will have his full day of
self worship and murderous rampage all over the world, how Israel will BE TOTALLY BY HERSELF AND PUMMELED BY ALL HER ENEMIES,
IF THE TRUE CHURCH IS STILL ON EARTH? RESTRAINER NOW IN THE SPIRIT, TOTALLY SILENT THEN IN THE SPIRIT?
Scripture is clear: there will be saved people standing at the end of the Great
Tribulation BUT THEY ARE JEW'S AND GENTILES who will NOT be part of THE TRUE CHURCH. The Jew will enter Israel as a saved
JEW and the Gentile will enter the Millennium as a saved Gentile NOT associated with His church.
"BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD" (Psalm 33:12)
behind me Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve" (Lk 4:8).
THE GREAT APOSTASY AND DELUSION IS AT OUR DOOR
But we are different now in America. We look to "leaders"
to take us to a new beginning in the life of our country. But without God except as it appears on the filthy money we print.
"In God We Trust" is not nearly enough! Forget the money! It would be better if God's name not be taken in vain.
God permits, if God wills, if God is with us, if we were not such a bunch of egotistical children being led by "leaders" mocking
the Lord's words, telling God His word has no more application to todays new generation. A wolf in sheeps clothing. Like a
pied piper, leading the children off the cliff of no return!
This is not going to work. Never. Sunday church going
means nothing if on Monday you lead 333,000,000 people with a disdain and disrespect for GOD!!! SHAME ON YOU. What you will
do, IF God permits, is 1000 times worse then what you artfully complain about! But I will complain about you, a disguised
child of wrath, an imposter who parades around with a forked tongue.
The loss to this nation and the spiritual darkness
that will further descend upon this world will be staggering. The casualties in the millions. In the end, the death of a nation
that is like Nineveh, Sodom, Rome, Babylon, God less and content. DELUSIONAL.
NO WE CAN'T!ONLY IF GOD WILLS, WE CAN!!!
WE ARE HIS TEMPLE HERE, THE HOME A CHURCH, MARRIAGE, THE PROVING GROUNDS OF HIS LOVE
We are the most
blessed people on earth! Eternal life is ours. We are joint heirs with Christ of all the Father has given Him, now and in
eternity! We are rich in His grace and beyond any mortal man out of faith, in wealth, with tangible spiritual gifts, assured
peace from God, security that makes earthly policies we pay for seem like a great big joke, and the gifts of The Spirit and
the fruits IF WE PROGRESS IN MATURITY IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.
The sacredness of marriage is to rise to the threshold
of the sanctity of our place as bride to be of our Lord. If one is blessed to have a marriage on earth, overshadowed by God,
who is the head of our household, then we account to Him according to standards that have nothing to do with right and wrong
as known in earthly terms, but we strive to be as He was here, a faithful and sinless servant who gave His life so we could
have these great and eternal blessings forever.
The pride of self, and the denial of our lostness, good for nothing
to God in our carnal being, should not be the death we suffer in the holy bonds of matrimony! That either spouse can claim
no fault, a state of sinlessness, by itself, is a clear indication that sin is hiding under the marital bed deceiving the
members of His body, and having separated them already from fellowship in the Spirit, will leave them as poor and miserable
brethren after the dust settles and they read in 1 John 1:8: "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the
truth is not in us".
Nor are they mindful that pride, unless it is vanquished by The Spirit of conviction, and soothed
by the great and abiding love of Christ, will lead them into the pit of a great fall that will affect them the remainder of
Both need to stop and compare their self righteousness in the light the walk of Christ down the road of
Calvary. Bleeding and smitten from being lashed and burdened with a cross that bore their sins and the sins of all, just so
these two could have a chance to have a life from above, and humble themselves in Him recognizing how lost they are, each
in their own self, at this critical moment of their walk towards either maturity in Him or the lie of this world called "DIVORCE"which
they aim for now.
In so doing they will have trampled their Lord's death underfoot, and deadened their ears to what
he said to the self righteous they now impersonate:
"Let he who has committed no sin cast the first stone"!
To whom will you pay your debts, when the final bill is rendered?
The depth of your fall will be the height of
And in the twilights tomorrow, a world in repair.
And out of the mists lifting about the aftermath,
is The Christ.

THE BATTLE ON YOUTUBE
(Cyberspace Streets of The World)
I greet you in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ.
We are in biblical history here.
We do it in the Spirit at home in this ministry here. Always remembering His sacrifice (His Body) and the meaning of His blood
that paid for ALL our sins! The foundation He laid down that is the most powerful weapon in all history, the Gospel of Grace,
through Jesus Christ, that death itself shrinks from, and lost souls in darkness are brought into light.
of communication on YouTube has brought to pass prophesy that has told us before the time of the end the Gospel will be preached,
all the world over, and then the end will come!
But it also provides the vehicle for the great apostasy that will reach
it's fullness after the true church is removed at the calling up of The Lord. AND this instrument we use for the good of Him
who sent us will be used by them as well as anti-christ for the new world order where he will be worshiped as a great deliverer
from economic turmoil and wars (distress of nations with perplexity...now in stage 1 it seems) as well as worship of him.
This is the strong delusion the world will fall for that he is god in the flesh (the 1st horseman on a white horse of Revelation)
we are on a battlefield that is UNPRECEDENTED in history! The fields are ripe and we the LABORERS FEW! We labor for His glory.
There is no better place then here! Of course person to person should not be overlooked, BUT, the material world is removed
from our domain as anomie grips the streets and human inter relationships turn more cold. If you attend a bible teaching church
this is a great blessing.
Make no mistake, HERE is the battle drawn and the enemy is ferocious and subtle, even genius
and with great guile! A TRUE EDUCATION AS WELL AS A PROVING GROUND OF OUR FAITH AND OUR TOTAL DEDICATION TO JESUS CHRIST.
For it is at your fingertips. We are the 24/7 church of Philadelphia! of blood tipped ones, who labor in the FIELDS OF THE
So I ask you: has God called you here to do His will? Then He will get you through. Other's will be sent
to help you, to love you in Christ! You will know them by their fruits! Pray on it. Still other's will try your love and your
faith. You will be fashioned into a sleek arrow of His quiver by the adversary himself as well as his army of demons who take
unbeliever's AT WILL. Many, believe they do God a favor hating us and despising us and thinking of our demise!
we are in Him. Like Him we taste so much poison and suffer so many disappointments, so much grief, but not a dot of the portion
GOD our Father had to place on the Lord of Glory that He so readily took upon himself as a terrible yoke to give us LIFE...His
We understand these truths. 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 all sin was not upon Him until the cross. And then it was the burden only
God the Son could take.
My dear beloved brethren, I have not one doubt that you are not finished in your calling 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
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
Strengthen the body that is our vehicle as 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 with him 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 we need to offer up to our 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
with His armor on, and the filling of the Holy Spirit, without the impediments of sin, awake and alert...ready.
is not news to you, my dear brethren. I am merely a sounding board echoing back at you His wisdom in you as a reminder of
that which you know. I love you in the Lord and in all 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!
ISRAEL FOREVER! WHAT ABOUT THE USA?
God, speaking to Israel in the end time:
"Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal
diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate:
but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married."
His oversight upon Israel and guarantee.
"I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold
their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till
he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm
of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not
drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured: But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they
that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness." (Isaiah
THE JUDGMENT OF THE LORD WHEN HE RETURNS TO EARTH TO RULE FROM ISRAEL.
"When the Son of man shall come in his glory,
and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep
from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them
on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For
I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and
ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered,
and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say
unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it
unto me." (Matthew 25:31-40).
God is talking about the Judgment Of Nations that follows
the Great Tribulation.
"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then
shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations..."
God is talking about "the least of these my brethren": ISRAELITES!
I have written on this subject at great length before. BUT HERE IS SOMETHING FOR
AMERICA, STANDS ON THE BRINK OF TOTAL DISASTER MORALLY
AS WELL AS IN DISAVOWEL OF IT'S TIME HONORED DUTY TO ISRAEL. WE ARE CHALLENGING GOD TO KEEP HIS WORDS! BY SO DOING WE ARE
SAYING, AS A NATION, WE DO NOT BELIEVE GOD IS, THUS WE HAVE NO DUTY TO CONTINUE KEEPING HIS WORD.
Let the Church remain in prayer for this nation and for the peace of Israel.
Let us be the example of His Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Be bold in our pronouncements,
in conduct becoming a Saint, in love for each other and the lost. Not continue, as many do, in the heresies:
that GOD has taken away the promises He made to
Israel and given them to us. ("Replacement Theology" so many knowingly or by error hold to)
Nor that America is the new "spiritual Israel"!
TODAY WE ARE A SHEEP NATION BECAUSE OF THE FAITHFUL HERE WHO HONOR GOD'S WILL
BY HIS WORD. TOMORROW WE MAY BE HOME WITH CHRIST. CERTAINLY WE WILL NOT BE HERE AT TRIBULATIONS CONCLUSION TO TIP THE SCALES
IN FAVOR OF THIS NATION BEING A "SHEEP NATION". THAT TIME HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH ISRAEL AND NOTHING
TO DO WITH THE CHURCH.
OH! SOME STILL SAY: WE MUST GO THROUGH IT ALL AND THE LORD WILL CALL US UP RIGHT AT IT'S END! BUT I ASK YOU: WHY, IF THAT WERE TRUE, WOULD HE REMOVE US BEFORE THE JUDGMENT OF THE
SHEEP AND THE GOAT NATIONS???
IF THE GOAT NATIONS WILL BE DESTROYED OFF THE FACE OF THE PLANET??? THINK!
WE LOOK FOR JESUS! NOT TRIBULATION
Here is a very important scripture. 2 Tim.4:6-8.
In the words of Paul, (who anticipated the Lord's coming even in his time) 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.
FAITH IS HOW WE LIVE
shall live by faith.This declaration of the Christian's principle of life is found in the bible. (Hab. 2:1-5; Rom. 1:17;
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. They reject God.
"1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto
me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that
he may run that readeth it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his
5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home,
who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth
unto him all people:"
"17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just
shall live by faith."
"38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him."
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.
And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth
into the fire, and oft into the water.
16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall
I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from
that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have
faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and
nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
"32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson,
and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped
the mouths of lions.
34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made
strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting
deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they
wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in
dens and caves of the earth.
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:"
not make anything easy, but it does make all things possible. (Heb. 11:1).
" 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
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).
"6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he
is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
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).
" 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called
according to his purpose."
Above all, taking the shield of faith (Eph. 6:16).
"16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts
of the wicked."
Faith is important
because it honors God, and God always honors faith
You cannot be saved without faith John 3:36
"36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not
see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him"
live victoriously over the world without faith 1 John 5:4
" 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith."
You cannot pray without faith James 1:6
" 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the
sea driven with the wind and tossed."

"1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:"
have joy without faith 1 Pet. 1:8
" 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice
with joy unspeakable and full of glory:"
You are justified
by faith and not works Gal. 2:16
"16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even
we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for
by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified."
You are to
live by faith Gal. 2:20
"20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
You are made
righteous by faith Rom. 10:1-4
"1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own
righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth."
in your heart by faith Eph. 3:17
"17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,"
spirit is received by faith Gal. 3:2
" 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the
hearing of faith?"
is not of faith is sin Rom. 14:23
"23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever
is not of faith is sin."
TASTE THE WORD OF GOD AND BE BLESSED
His word goes out to you, and I, from many quarters have been inspired to reach out as much as time
and His Spirit allow. To help in some small way with your studies, with cares and troubles, with prayer and praise, is a position
that God has appointed to me, and that some of you confirm by your testimony.
continue to aspire to be a light in the darkness of apostasy and error, and a beacon of hope pointing
always to our Lord who is the author and finisher of our "Faith". We are the just, through Him, and we live,
by His faith.
us walk the path He built for us, and see how straight and narrow, yet liberating it is!
ARE UNDER A BETTER COVENANT THROUGH CHRIST
6 "Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit:
for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life."
ministers of a New Covenant, a New Testament, effectual because of His blood and His death.One in which it
is not of the letter of the law but of the spirit. The letter of the law in the Old Testament condemned. All are guilty
sinners. The Mosaic law never gave life. And Paul makes this clear here "...the spirit gives life".
anyone in the history of God's creation who was saved by keeping Law? NO! Only Jesus Christ kept the law! Moses
was a murderer, as was King David. The law cannot be kept. It is a mirror of our sinfulness, and a measurement of our
sin nature and failures. It was designed to show His righteousness and our sinfulness. So no man could boast and all
men and women must be saved by faith, a faith God bestowed in anticipation of Messiah on Earth. Faith worked before Abraham,
then under the Law of Moses and after Christ, it is by grace through faith. Law never saved a soul.

10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that
11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
We are ministers in the
righteousness of Christ! "For if that which was done away..." WHAT was done away? THE LAW! And what took
it's place? The New Covenant and the day of GRACE in which we live ! Thank you Jesus! Let us bow our heads and give our
Lord some praise for He is The Glory.
The Mosaic Law was strict.
It demanded an eye for an eye. a tooth for a tooth etc. It was absolute. Whatever a man deserved according to the law, that
was what he received. In Exodus 32 the people were already breaking the Law.
"And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together
unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us
up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him."
7 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the
land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten
calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee
up out of the land of Egypt.
9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff-necked people:"
Had Moses brought the
tables of the Law into the camp at this time the entire nation of Israel would have been destroyed according to LAW. The breaking
of these laws meant instant death. So Moses smashed them and went into the camp!
Then Moses returned to
the top of Mt. Sinai and the presence of God and something happens! He asks God for mercy for the people and God gives
them a second chance. He gives Moses the second tables of the Law. Moses now understands God is tempering the Law with
mercy and grace. The Mosaic system will now have at it's heart a tabernacle and a sacrificial system that will be the basis
of approach to God, which is "...without shedding of blood there is no remission of sin".
"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission."
But without holiness,
no man is going to see God!
"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:"
How in the world are we
going to get into the presence of God? God had to make a way for us and did! It was the grace of God fulfilled in the, birth, death
and resurrection of Christ.
9 "And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which
is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:"
glory of the grace of God fulfilled in Christ is a ministration of glory. It is called "the glorious gospel of the blessed
God". God loves man and DELIGHTS in mercy! He wants to save man. It is not His will that any of the human family should be
lost. Saving man makes Him happy.
Moses came down from Mt. Sinai the second time there was loy in his heart and his face shined. Now there was a way for the
children of Israel to come into the presence of God through the sacrificial system.
Moses came down with a veil on his face. The glory was already beginning to fade! It was a portend of what would be the fate
of the nation of Israel. Blinded to the fulfillment of the whole law by Christ to this very day! And not only these, but in
the church itself some of us still live as under law though grace came in the form of THE SON OF GOD.
18 "Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant
of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn
from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?"
2 Corinthians 3:14-18
14 "But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading
of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same
image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
And, my brethren, it is
Christ IN THE WORD OF GOD that will transform you. For in it we draw as close as possible to the Lord Jesus and are transformed.
And as we grow in His truths we see the vail lifted and His being is more clear to us, as we look upon the One who loves us
and gave His life so we should live, by GRACE through FAITH, according to His will for us, in the Power of The Holy Spirit.
1 Peter 1:23
23 "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth
and abideth for ever."
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
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
He calls us home to stay
In the twilight I still pray
For the dawn of our new day
And He loves me, and it
Like the heavens and a dream
The Lord of Glory is His name
A NEW COVENANT IN HIS BLOOD
Many still have one foot in Old Testament Law and the other
in Christ and the New Covenant. Sabbath keeping, Holidays, dietary laws, indeed, the 10 commandments as a necessary yardstick
to whether one is saved or not by keeping or not keeping all of them.
But to fully appreciate what Jesus Christ achieved
for us we must consider His exalted place today at the right hand of God and what He fulfilled on the cross as well as WHAT
IS THE NEW COVENANT IN CHRIST'S BLOOD? and why we are under it's saving grace and NOT the Old Covenant made with Israel.
But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established
upon better promises."
Our Lord is our High Priest above pleading His blood for our sins and the sins of the world
until He returns to call His church up from the earth to meet Him in the air. He is ministering to us in the Tabernacle in
Heaven. The earthly one of the Jew's was just a shadow of it.
"1 Now of the things which we have spoken
this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
3 For every high priest
is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: (At
the time this epistle was written the Temple of the Jew's was still standing)
5 Who serve unto the example and shadow
of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou
make all things according to the pattern showed to thee in the mount."
Now all of this was a shadow of the reality.
The reality itself was in Heaven. And today Jesus is there in the heavenly tabernacle functioning on our behalf. Brethren,
ask yourself "Is Christ real to me right now". What does this mean to you? Have you considered that you have a mediator between
yourself and God our Father who keeps you in grace and in fellowship notwithstanding sins that you commit by commission and
omission, by thoughts without actual deeds, by the very nature of your dead self that you still live in, though as an overcomer,
you overcome SOLELY by The Holy Spirit in you?
When we left the house this morning did we take Christ with us? Are
we conscious of His presence? He is in heaven serving us all the time! He is our intercessor! we make confession of sin through
Him to our Father. May we make Jesus Christ, in all His power, and in all His salvation, and in all of His love and care for
us, a true reality!
1 John 1:6-10:
"6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie,
and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and
the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
"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:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but
also for the sins of the whole world."
We need to stop with the milk and get to the meat! Are we in His presence daily?
Why do we have so many problems that we take to everyone, including our pastor's when we have Him up there? A living Christ.
If we walk in the light of His presence, we are going to walk with Him down the street. Wherever we are He is with us. Do
we take Him with us? If He is with us then there are many things we will have to consider in our choices, our conduct, our
The throne of God is today a throne of GRACE! He has done that for us! He has told us to enter there and
be with Him. We have the key, He has given it to us by Faith He gave us and our salvation He died for; "Without faith it is
impossible to please him; for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently
seek him" (Heb.11:6).
Now we are into the meat! Now we are walking in the tall corn fields!
Beloved, no one
could remain saved if Jesus Christ was not where he is right now!
He is the mediator of a better covenant, the New
Covenant... the New Testament God has made IN HIS BLOOD, in contrast with the Old Testament. God gave Moses the Law. No one
was ever saved by keeping the Law. no one ever came to God and said " I have kept all the law, therefore receive me". NO!
They were continually bringing sacrifices to the Temple because they transgressed God's Law. THE LAW WAS GIVEN TO REVEAL TO
THEM THEY HAD TRANSGRESSED GOD'S LAW AND COME SHORT OF HIS GLORY!
The sacrificial system was a shadow of things to
come. And the tabernacle God gave them a shadow of the REAL TABERNACLE IN WHICH OUR LORD MINISTER'S TODAY! So we see we have
a BETTER priest up yonder, a BETTER sacrifice, and a BETTER tabernacle. Christ incorporates ALL THREE!
What we have
now is established on BETTER PROMISES! Back in the Old Testament God had given the Mosaic Law and the tabernacle ritual, and
when they breached His law they brought a sacrifice. Before Moses there was Abraham and the instruction on how to come to
God was BY FAITH, like Abraham . Before Abraham, there was Noah and the basis was different.
Today we fall under the
New Covenant (Through Christ), being made a part of it as Christians, but God is NOT through with the nation of Israel yet!
And these better promises are going to be fulfilled for them in the future millennium .
Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places; and
the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof."
8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind
and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.
They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in
a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him,
and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
11 For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of
him that was stronger than he."
"31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a
new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with
their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake,
although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house
of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will
be their God, and they shall be my people."
The Jews are not in Israel under God's redemption today, but when the day
comes, there will be a fulfillment of what the writer to the Hebrews says that there are going to be better promises on a
better covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
" 8 For finding fault with them,
he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house
Now let me say this: we, being under the new covenant that God has made ready for Israel as well, through
their redeemer, the Lion of The Tribe of Judah, then let us be mindful that we do not trespass and set aside in GROSS ERROR
OR EVEN IN HERESY, the sureness of our position in Christ by proclaiming as some do that Israel is no more in God's plan,
for in so denying Israel we deny the very covenant, that by the grace of God through Christ, we come under!
For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house
of Israel and with the house of Judah:
9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when
I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them
not, saith the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith
the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall
be to me a people:
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the
Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and
their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first
old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away."
And as Paul makes abundantly clear:
" 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and
shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 For as ye in times past have not believed
God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through
your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon
A last word before we stop this most important study of our Lord, His High Priestly ministry above, His faithfulness
to His church AND to Israel, we must CONSIDER that so much false and erroneous teachings are being tossed out by people who
have NOT studied the word of God in depth AND WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT DIRECTING THEM that many brethren, less knowing, have a
serious misconception of end time prophesy as well as a lurking doubt about the security of their salvation.
THE NEW COVENANT IN CHRIST'S BLOOD PT2
All the Jewish saints
of old testament times and those that came before looked to their redemption from God the Savior. Disclosed
in Isaiah 53 Israel was given the key to what would be the future event to liberate the lost from their sins and the prison
of an eternal grave in separation from God forever:
"1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out
of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did
esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his
own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth:
he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his
generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death;
because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when
thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD
shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by
his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall
divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors;
and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."
Upon His completion of His sacrifice and resurrection, He was taken up in a cloud and once in the presence of His Father's
throne, assumed His rightful position as our High Priest in the Holiest Of Holies of The Temple made without mans hands. And
brought with Him His Holy blood to plead for our sins and those of the world.
Beloved; we can worship our Lord anywhere in Spirit. We do so right here in Churchintheair IF we choose to participate
in this ministry that has roots around the world. We do not need fancy buildings nor stained glass windows nor another roof
over our heads. God is Spirit and we who worship Him worship in Spirit and truth which is His word.
There is the real tabernacle in heaven and a real High Priest there, and it is wonderful to worship Him at your church
if you attend, but right where you are there is worship, right there in the very room you are in and He is there with you.
Let us shout a joyous shout to our Holy God who loved us so that He gave His only begotten Son, that He should bleed His blood
and suffer such a death for us so that we can do for Him at the least, in giving Him the rightful praise and Glory He so richly
HEBREWS 9:11-15, 18, 24-28:
"11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect
tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered
in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer
sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit
offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by
means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might
receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death
of the testator.
17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of
no strength at all while the testator liveth.
18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.
19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according
to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book,
and all the people,
20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined
21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels
of the ministry.
22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without
shedding of blood is no remission.
23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the
heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better
sacrifices than these.
24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands,
which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the
holy place every year with blood of others;
26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of
the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for
him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after
"Holy Father, conviction has taken hold of me. I am ashamed. My sins have overwhelmed me to the devils glee.
It is against you, oh LORD, that I have sinned. You know the beginning and end of my life. In my failures I have demeaned
my Lord and Savior and faith was abandoned in a moment of lostness. I bow my head in sorrow and by the blood of Jesus, my
Lord, I am clean again.
You are a GOD of forgiveness and mercy. Your love passes all understanding. Holy are you, oh
LORD, and righteous are your judgments. It is so and I thank you for this comfort. Judgment begins at your house.
my paths, oh LORD. In your righteousness I am secure and through your loving kindness I am content. Strengthen me in your
Holy Spirit's power and wisdom. You cared for me my whole life my Father. You delivered me from death and my enemies. I praise
you and give you all glory. You are a GOD of care and comfort and never forget your own.
In you and you alone no evil
can overcome me, and your love for me, oh LORD. Nothing in this world or elsewhere can, for only you are THE ALMIGHTY GOD,
and all is subject to you. And I am yours through Jesus Christ, the Son of Man. You will deliver me and fulfill your will
for my life.
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.
May the Lord and Savior come soon.
I pray to you in His Holy name and believe I am forgiven."
"1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and
High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;"
"14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens,
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling
of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
Lord occupies a threefold office: 1. He was a prophet when He came almost 2000 years ago; 2. He is a
priest today; 3. He is coming someday to rule as King from Jerusalem, and redeem Israel from total obliteration.
Can we live the Christian life on our own? Can we even understand the scriptures we read by our own mind? Of course
NOT! God never asked us to! He asks us to live it through Him and His strength. And because He is who He is now, we CAN hold
forth our confession of faith...IF we live by His faith we ARE ONE IN HIM!
THE MAN IN THE GLORY
"He shines like a billion suns ablaze
No nighttime in his countenance to see
A more than brilliant face
His clothing is luminescent pure
His hair on fire golden white
And angels minister to him in flight.
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
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".
How do we come boldly into the presence of our Lord and High Priest?
"19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest
by the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us,
through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts
sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering;
(for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
For those who have one IOTA of doubt of their salvation let His word's be made most clear:
Paul says in Romans 8:1: "There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus..." And expands that
truth to it's conclusive triumph in Romans 8:33:
"Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifies."
Nothing can change what is ours through the Lord and our
faith in His blood sacrifice that cleaned us forever...and does so each day.
Paul continues: in Romans 8:34-39:
" Who is he that condemns? It is Christ that died, and that is risen again, who is
even at the right hand of God, who makes intercession for us".
Now hear what the Spirit, through Paul, has to say:
shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril,
or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. In all
these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor
angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor anything created,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord."
let's hear what Jesus has to say in John 10:27-28:
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give to them ETERNAL LIFE"
He goes on to add in verse 28-29:
"And they shall never perish, neither shall
any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave me to them, is greater than all; and no man is able to take them
out of my Father's hand".
You see it is not us who holds
on but God who holds us. God is supreme and all powerful. Once saved always saved is guaranteed by Jesus.
