                                                         ARTICLES RELATED TO PROPHECY Demons can manipulate matter on the molecular/atomic level and do things that utterly defy any naturalistic, material explanation.  Share this with your unbelieving and atheistic friends and pass it on to Christians to warn them to be alert and aware.  Please read these biblical passages to see the warning God gave us about this type of deception: Matthew 24:24, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 and Revelation 13:11-18.

ALTERNATE BELIEF SYSTEMS THAT CONFLICT WITH BIBLICAL AUTHORITY

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

HOW CAN I KNOW THERE IS A GOD?

 (Taken from Pastor Robert Jeffress series, "How Can I Know?")

There are many things that tell us God is there:

1.) The cosmological evidence: Why is their something , rather than nothing?  The naturalist had dogmatically concluded - Nothing x No One = Everything.  This defies all the observable laws of science, and it is a serious contradiction for the atheist who claims to base all their science on order, instead of random chaos.  Trying to make such a wild exception for the origin of the universe is unscientific nonsense and it is why they run away from the term they first used, spontaneous generation, because they know how foolish it makes them look, even though they still want to believe in it.

2.) The teleological evidence: How do one explain the extremely complex design within our universe?  It took just the right amount of initial matter to make it.  Where did that matter come from?  There are at least 122 necessary components that have to be in existence PERFECTLY for the earth to sustain life.  Slight imbalances in any direction for most all of them would cancel out all life as we now it.  The right mix of atmosphere, the correct distance from the sun, the right gravity that must remain very steady, etc.  The odds of this are 10 to the 138th power.  

HOWEVER, it gets even more impossible when we more down to examine things on the cellular level.  All the parts had to be in place and functioning at the same time in the beginning, which has been estimated to be about a 1 in 10 to the 40,000th power by the well respected scientist Sir Fred Hoyle.  Anything over 1 in 10 to the 200th power is considered outside the possibility of any random chance, regardless of the amount of time one would wish to give it.  Thus, even if one took the flawed position of an eternal universe (it is expanding and thus had a beginning and this is contrary to the 2nd law of thermodynamics), it still would never happen by itself.  

This problem was one of many reasons why the invention of “multiple universes” was created.  Yet, the existence of multiple universes would be harder to prove than God, which only proves just how remarkable the faith of some atheists really can be.  And that’s just one cell, think of the trillions of complex cells that make up the human body to form even higher complex mechanisms like the eye!  The multiple universe theory is like saying that if you put all the parts for a jetliner in an infinite number of wind tunnels for an infinite amount of time, eventually a jet would come together just like one assembled at the factor.  Sorry, but chunky dust is the best you would ever get from such an absurd method.

3.) The anthropological evidence:  How do you explain mankind, without a Designer/Creator?  Our existence – observational science demonstrates to us repeatedly on a daily basis that life only comes from life (the law of biogenesis).  Human consciousness – our awareness of ourselves (rocks can’t do that), our awareness of God (animals don’t build alters and idols, or burn incense).  

Why would humans accept persecution and death for there belief, unless they innately understand they were made for another world (the spiritual dimension beyond the material existence)?  If it were just some “genetic defect” as the atheist wish to postulate, then why does over 90 % of humanity believe in a God of some kind?  Genetic defects are commonly found in the minority of the population of a species, so this argument would actually mean it is the atheists that are defective.   

Finally, how would you explain our awareness of morality (right and wrong)?  Those who would say there are no absolutes (an oxymoron) would be quick to say it was wrong for someone to rape and kill them and steal everything they had without consequence.  Some counter with it is all taken from “society’s opinion”, yet when society decides to enslave, rape, murder, or steal from THEM, then that opinion can be conveniently be overridden.  The arguments against moral awareness are vain and hypocritical.

4.)  The experiential evidence:  Why do people keep finding God if He does not exist?  Over 500 eyewitnesses saw the resurrected Christ.  The disciples did not expect the resurrection, as they went into hiding after Jesus was crucified.  They went on, after seeing the evidence of Jesus resurrected to tell the whole world, displaying the same miraculous power Jesus did and at a great cost to themselves; against their own self-interests. 

There is the choice to follow the objective evidence, which is all around us, or there is the subjective choice to believe something else in spite of the evidence.  And don’t think it does not matter either, for as Mortimer Adler said, “More consequences for life and action follow from the affirmation or denial of God, than from any other question”.

How Can I Know the Bible is True?

(Taken in part from Pastor Robert Jeffress series on “How Can I Know”, and from information with The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict By Josh McDowell.)

First, what does it mean that the Bible is true?

It speaks forth God’s authoritative message to mankind concerning doctrine, theology, character, purpose, etc. without error.  It is a finished product that cannot and will not be overturned with time.

The Bible itself makes these claims, which is important, because if it did not, then any claim of authority would be coming from just the outside and the critics would be quick to assert that the Bible never made such a claim for its authority from the Creator.  But it does.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 states, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

Jesus said, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.  For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” (Matthew 5:17-18)

 

Jude 3 states, “Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.”

 

It is stated in Galatians 1:8, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!”

 

Also, God made it clear that the Bible was not to be altered, “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you”. (Deuteronomy 4:2)  “Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it”. (Deuteronomy 12:32)  “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19)

Yet, one of the best proofs is that God challenged anyone else to write a book and predict the future has He has in His word.  “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:  ‘I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me.  ‘Who is like Me? Let him proclaim and declare it; yes, let him recount it to Me in order, from the time that I established the ancient nation.  And let them declare to them the things that are coming and the events that are going to take place’” (Isaiah 44:6-7).

And again God seals it by saying, “for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.” (2 Peter 1:21)

As Dr. Charles Ryrie put it, “Inspiration is God’s superintending of human authors so that, using their own individual personalities, they composed and recorded without error in the words of the original autographs His revelation to man”.

Some of it was direct word for word (i.e. the Ten Commandments written by the finger of God and various prophetic words given) and some of it was given indirectly through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. (See Exodus 20, Isaiah 1:2, Jeremiah 1:1-2, Psalm 95:7b-8, and Hebrews 3:7 relating to Psalm 95 for just a few.)

It is important to understand that God’s “revelation” does include mentioning the lies of Satan and men, emotional outbursts and situations, quotes from non-believers and the record of certain sins committed (even by those who wrote it, which is telling of its inspiration, because this is not what people would normally do, if they were making it up or writing it to tell about themselves).

The words of the original texts were without error.  Minor and insignificant copyist’s errors do exist, but no doctrinal truth is altered one bit by them. Additionally, there are certain translation/version problems, because anyone can write their own adaptation, and several have done just that, because of the profit on book sales that the Bible generates.  So, one must be careful in selecting a scholarly version that was done by people who wished to remain true to the manuscripts from the originals.  The NASB and ESV are quality translations.

The authority and authenticity of the Bible was claimed by Jesus several times:

And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? (Matthew 19:4-5)

 

But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophetfor just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:39-40)

 

“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24:37-39)

 

“But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God:  ‘I am (not was) the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” (Matthew 22:31-32)

 

And again Jesus said, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.  For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” (Matthew 5:17-18)

The authority and authenticity of the Bible was claimed by the apostles as well:

Paul demonstrated it in 1 Timothy 5:18 where he wrote, For the Scripture says, ‘You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing,’ (from Deuteronomy 25:4) and ‘The laborer is worthy of his wages’ (from Luke 10:7)”.

Peter showed it in 2 Peter 3:15-16 where he stated, “and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.”

Fulfilled Prophecy makes its own case.

There are numerous examples of this.  One is the prophecy concerning Cyrus, the ruler of Persia.  In Isaiah 44:28 it states, “It is I who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd!  And he will perform all My desire.’ And he declares of Jerusalem, ‘She will be built,’ And of the temple, ‘Your foundation will be laid.’”.  This was stated in 539 BC well before Cyrus had even been born, one 150 years in advance, that Cyrus would be the name of the ruler, who would order the return of the Jews to their land!

Another example is found when Isaiah prophesied in 700 B.C. that Babylon (not a real power then, to be a threat to Israel at the time) would overthrow Judah, which happened over a century later in 586 B.C. (Isaiah 39:5-6).  Also, Isaiah and Daniel predicted that Persia would then, in turn, conquer Babylon afterward. (Isaiah 21:9 and Daniel 2:36-39; 8:20)

Prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

There were over 61 major prophecies for the Messiah.  Of these 61, many of them were entirely beyond human manipulation for a would-be-“messiah”.  Things like the place of His birth (Micah 5:2), the time of His birth (Daniel 9:25), the manner of His birth (Isaiah 7:14), His betrayal for thirty pieces of silver (Zechariah 11:12), the manner of His death (Psalm 22:16), for crucifixion had not even been invented at that time, the people’s reaction to His death (Psalm 22:7-8) and His burial in a rich man’s tomb (Isaiah 53:9).

If we take just eight of these types of non-manipulative prophecies, the odds of probability for their fulfillment would be 1 x 10 to the 17th power.  The odds of just eight of these types of prophecy being fulfilled would be like piling up the entire state of Texas with silver dollars, two feet deep and then putting an "X" on one and randomly burying it somewhere in the mix.  Then, we would send a blind man into the state, ask him to wander around for miles and miles, and then finally at a whim reach down and put up one coin, and never have another chance to try again.  The chances of him selecting the coin with the "X" on it are 1 x 10 to the 17th power.  It’s not going to happen!  And that’s just eight of the prophecies!

The Unity of the Bible.

Just think about all the controversial topics that the Bible covers:  The character of God, man, Satan, sin, Heaven, Hell, origins, morals, etc.  Yet, we have an amazing consistency of theme and topics from the beginning to end.  What makes this so astonishing is that the Bible was written by 40 different authors over 1500 year time span, on at least three continents (separated by 2000 miles) and in three different languages.  These people came from all walks of life and various cultural influences.  They held different positions, from kings to poor men, from priests to shepherd and from prophets to refugees.  Some wrote when happy, others when depressed. 

To understand just how phenomenal this really is let’s move this into our modern world and severely limit the variables.  Let’s say we took 40 people all working in the same country (say France), speaking the same language, from the same culture, and all working in the same field (say accounting).  Then, we asked each of these 40 individuals to write down for us there personal views of just origins, God, morals, Heaven, Hell, mankind and Satan.  Then, we would collect all 40 separate volumes and put them together a one big book and call it “the Bible”.  What do you think we would have???  This would be the greatest laughable joke of contradiction and nonsense ever compiled!  Although some very ignorant and arrogant people on planet Earth love to run around claiming this is the case with the Bible, it’s just not so, and it is nothing like the mess we would have if the Bible had been just randomly scribbled down by men over a millennium and a half.

Again, the odds of this happening by sheer chance would be like having random people, subjectively bring hundreds of thousands of parts to a specific warehouse, over 1500 years.  Then, after the 1500 years all the parts would be assembled together into a perfect cathedral without any single piece missing or broken.  The supernatural is all over this phenomenon and denying the obvious fact of it, just because one chooses to be a die hard naturalist, is truly an extreme state of foolishness.

More over, when we look at other books like the Book of Mormon, which has no real historical support or the Qur’an, which was only written down by one man (a violation of the number of {two or three} witnesses for verification from the Law of Moses, by the way), yet none of its 114 Surahs focus on a single theme.  This is why even though such books attempt to use the Bible as a basis for where their faith comes from, they directly contradict it in many ways.

Early Acceptance of the Bible’s Message in Cultures That Were Hostile to it.

 

The extent and repetition of acceptance of the message of Jesus Christ during the generation that could verify or deny the reality of the events and miracles could not have happened if it had all just been made up.  Many devout Jews and staunch pagans completely changed their faith and practices, often at the rejection from their culture and family.  In Jerusalem more than 10,000 Jews became followers of Jesus after His resurrection, following the miracle At Pentecost.  This kind of massive shift of belief does not take place in a vacuum, or without dramatic evidence.

Most of the New Testament books were written between 40-65 A.D., as not one of them mentioned the fulfillment of Jesus prediction of the city of Jerusalem and the temple being destroyed, which took place in 70 A.D., which would have been note worthy.

Jesus Christ - a true historical person.

Rarely, someone will go so far as to claim Jesus Christ was not even a true historical person, which is completely absurd on its face, because the same person would not deny Julius Caesar or Alexander the Great, yet there is far more documented evidence for Jesus Christ.  They will go on to vainly assert that there is nothing outside the Bible that mentions the existence of Jesus.

Sadly, there are some people that no matter how much proof you present to them they will never believe it anyway, not because it is not true and well documented, but rather because it interferes with their false belief system, and their ornery, self-justified rebellious position against God. 

In his book, The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict, Josh McDowell, a former embittered atheist himself, givens a plethora of well documented evidence supporting the validity of the Bible.  In this area McDowell points out that there where many extra-biblical historical references to Jesus Christ, and they usually were from people who were antagonistic to Christianity, which makes them very good witnesses, since they had nothing to gain by admitting the existence to the historical reality of something they disdained.  Many of these individuals are well regarded as excellent historians as well.  There was Cornelius Tacitus, Lucian of Samosata, Suetonius, Pliny the Younger, Thallus, Phlegon, Mara Bar-Serapion and yes, Josephus.  The notable details and documentation are all in McDowell’s book for those who need to see them.  Also you can go to Josh.org for a wealth of free information on this topic.

Archaeological Evidences – Although archaeology cannot prove the Bible conclusively, because we likely won’t ever dig up everything, it has never controverted the Bible, which is highly significant.  Further, considering just how much has been dig up over the years showing the Bible’s historicity to be valid, it is strong verification that goes well beyond coincidence. 

Additionally, we have historical documentation of the many writings of the early church era.  Letters found from some of the early church leaders alone contain quotations of all but eleven verses of the New Testament.  This demonstrates that the verses were not changed or full of errors as liberal (unbelieving) "Christian" and secular scholars wish to mislead people to believe.  No doctrinal changes are found and a solid preservation of the text has been maintained over the years.  People seek to discredit the New Testament merely on the basis that if it is true, then it ends all support for what they want to believe in, which is to the contrary.  For the authoritative meaning of the New Testament greatly bothers the proud and rebellious of heart who wish to avoid accountability to the true Creator, the God of the Bible, based on His terms, instead of theirs. 

 Evidence For The Old Testament

In 1964, the ancient clay tablets of Ebla found in northern Syria from the third millennia B.C. mentioned some of the same ancient cities that the Bible speaks of, i.e. Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19), which critics said never existed, because the cities were only found in the Bible.  (The attitude/bias that some hold against the Bible is unfounded, yet often very strong. So, they take the position that since they do not wish to believe the Bible, if there is no other reference to support it, then it could never have existed, period.  Such critics have been humiliated often by the latest archaeological discovery.  Yet, they never seem to learn.)

Jericho (Joshua 6) is another example.  Archaeologists found evidence for the sudden collapse of the cities walls and that the city had not been plundered, but burned.  This fits the biblical account perfectly.

Ashpenaz (Daniel 1:3) used to be ridiculed as a fictitious character, which was cited as “proof” by the skeptics that the book of Daniel was just a made up story.  Yet, a brick was dug up from the ruins of 6th century B.C. Babylon with his name on it.

Even the great king David was considered to be pure Jewish mythology by the hardened doubters, but in 1994 an inscription was unearthed which verified the “House of David”, as if that was needed for any reasonable person.

 

Evidence For The New Testament

Luke’s gospel – Sir William Ramsey was a skeptic that sought to discredit the Bible by doing a series of archaeological digs to dispel the Bible’s historical record.  Ramsey particularly focused in on Luke’s gospel, thinking it would be easy to expose.  However, Ramsey repeatedly found that when he explored and investigated for evidence, he found it to be exactly as Luke had recorded it.  At first he was stunned, but as his investigation continued over time, he became convinced that Luke was a foremost historian, who had been very accurate and detailed in his record.  So much so, that he gave his life to Christ!

Caiaphas the High Priest (Matthew 26:57) and Pontius Pilate (Matthew 27:2) have been verified by archaeological finds, as well as the theater in Ephesus, where Christians disciples associated with Paul were nearly put to death.  These examples are being mentioned here, because the ardent cynics have tried to use these issues as “proof” that the Bible could not possibly be true.  Sadly, this type of person will usually just move on to the next available excuse/item that no outside proof has been discovered for yet and continue on in their assertion that the Bible could not possibly be true, all the while completely ignoring the many significant finds that do verify the bible’s historic authenticity.

Common Objections To The Trustworthiness Of The Bible

The claim is made that there were too many copying error by the scribes throughout the centuries.  Yet, here it is important to consider just how manuscript support and authentication is actually determined for any ancient piece of literature.  There are two factors that this determination is qualified by: the number of surviving manuscripts and the distance of time between the original writing and the surviving copies.

Manuscript support for the Old Testament

About 10,000 manuscripts or pieces of manuscripts are available for inspection concerning the Old Testament.  The scribes’ manner of copying was extremely meticulously checked and rechecked before being accepted.  Only a few mistakes were all it took for their long hours of copying to be rejected and burned, so that it could not be passed on.

However, a great testament to the accuracy in the copying that was done for the Old Testament writings is found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were first discovered in 1947, preserved in large clay jars in caves near the Dead Sea. These Scroll have been dated to no earlier that 100 B.C. by the hardest critics, with some scholars saying they could go back as far as 400 B.C.  The majority of scholars have settled somewhere in the middle around 125-250 B.C.

The reason this is significant is two fold.  First, before the Dead Sea Scroll discovery, the latest manuscript copy of the Old Testament was right around 900 A.D.  In other words, the Dead Sea Scroll were at least 1000 years removed/older than the previous manuscript copies, believed to be the oldest still in existence.  But, that was nothing.  It was only when the two were compared that the amazing copying accuracy was seriously verified for our modern time period. For instance, there was a complete copy of the book of Isaiah that was found to be over 95% perfect, word of word.  The small number of discrepancies was found in words like “of” and “with”, or “in” and “on”, which did not change the meaning of the context.  In fact, no significant change in meaning was discovered, causing the vast majority of scholars to agree that we still do have an intact/correct rendition of the original that has been well preserved.  This discovery alone puts to rest the many lies concocted about the Bible being secretly confiscated in mass all over the world and then redone by corrupt priests sometime after the first century and through the twentieth century and then cleverly redistributed.  Yes, I know this is absurd and utterly laughable, but you might be surprised just how many people actually believe this fairy tale as a “justification” for rejecting the authority of the Bible.

Manuscript support for the New Testament

Nearly 25,000 manuscripts or pieces of manuscripts are available for inspection concerning the New Testament.  This number of manuscripts is so prolific that out of the some 20,000 lines in the Greek New Testament, only 40 are in question.  That’s 99.998% purity!  More importantly, not one of this tiny fraction, of the 40 lines, has any relevance on any Christian doctrine!

When we combine this with the nearness of the originals, which was previously pointed out that most had been written prior to 70 A.D., to the comparatively short number years between the originals and the surviving manuscripts, there really is no question of the New Testaments authenticity, accuracy and authority (because it is true and clearly demonstrates itself to be the divine word of God). 

These figures do not even take into account all of the documented manuscripts of the quotes of Scripture from just seven of the early Patristic (church leaders’) quotations, which are in agreement with the surviving manuscripts of the New Testament.  Over 36,000 quotes from the New Testament have been found to date that verify the authenticity of the original biblical manuscripts.

To grasp the gravity of this, just take a look at how the New Testament stacks up against all other major literary works of antiquity, for distance between the original and the number of copies that have survived!

No one questions the historic authenticity of these other literary works of history, even though they have far less support.  Therefore, the common objections and claims that the Bible is impure, a copy of a copy of a copy, etc., or that it was changed and redone at some point between the original writings and our modern day, so that can no longer be trusted, are merely sheer fanciful thinking by those who do not care for its authority.  This is the real reason it is constantly, viciously attacked and slandered, because its meaning is both true and final concerning the souls of mankind.  The likes of Homer, Caesar and Plato are no threat to the wicked and unbelieving, but Jesus Christ is.  This is why the attacks against God’s holy word will not stop until Jesus returns.

How Did We Get The Bible In Its Present Form?

(In other words, who decided which writings or books were valid and which were not?)

The Old Testament Canon (Standard).

Two main tests were used to examine authenticity of the biblical text.  The bibliography test and the internal evidence test.  The bibliography test involves the accuracy of textual transmission of the copying process.  As mentioned previously, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has basically put an end to the imaginations that the critics have invented over the years about this.  Sadly though, many of the same, well refuted “evidences” of skeptics in the past are still regurgitated by many who would just prefer not believe.

Also, many of the claims to alternate authorship, and thus authenticity, are still commonly parroted.  For instance, the Torah (Pentateuch or the first five books of the Bible) where written by Moses.  Yet, liberal (unbelieving) “higher” critics (or the so-called “Christian” intellectuals) invented four separate authors for the Torah (JEDP) and claimed it was written much later (400-500 B.C.) than the time of Moses, with many clever contentions (lies) cited as proof.  They had many people fooled until the Samaritan copy from 700 A.D. was brought to the forefront of the debate.  The Samaritan copy could only have been copied from an earlier version and thus the JEDP criticism was completely discredited.  Nevertheless, there are those who still use it today as “proof” for the reason they do not believe the Bible. 

The Old Testament is replete throughout, with passages that tell us it was passed down from generation to generation in a very public way (cf. Deuteronomy 31:24-26, Joshua 24:26, 1 Samuel 10:25 and Zechariah 7:12 - for but a few examples).  It was even carried into captivity, understood and acted upon (Daniel 9:2).

The internal evidence is the history and documentation of people, places and events through archaeology.  The list for this area is far too extensive to even begin to adequately address.  Nonetheless, as mentioned previously, the ancient tablets of Ebla from the third millennia B.C. confirmed the real historical data of a great deal of the names and places  found in the Bible.  Egyptian chariot wheels from the time period of Moses have now been found at the bottom of the Red Sea, on both sides of the crossing, where God had parted the water (http://www.squidoo.com/redseacrossing).  The real Mt. Sinai in southern Saudi Arabia, with a charred mountain top and the near-by rock that was split and water miraculously poured out of it, when struck by Moses have been found as well (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-eSRcr9CWw).  

Again, critics have repeatedly claimed that a certain city or person never existed, just because no evidence outside of the Bible had yet been discovered.  Yet, things like the “non-existent” Hittite civilization just keep being dug up, one after the other, repeatedly verifying the Bible gives us a reliable historic record.  Again, no archaeological find has ever contradicted the Bible. 

Contrast this to the book of Mormon, where archaeology has never been able to be used to verify any of the wild claims of Joseph Smith’s invented great civilizations that supposedly once occupied the Americas, even though Mormons have been digging for evidence for 150 years!

The 39 book of the Old Testament where established at the very latest in 250 B.C., as this was when they had been copied and complied into the Septuagint, or the Greek language version of the 39 books of the Old Testament.  The themes had to remain consistent about God, His plan and man’s purpose.  The prophetic inspiration given in the Bible’s pages had to pass the test of being non-contradictory, which they have.  All these things together show us why the Bible can be trusted as God’s authoritative word.

What about the Apocrypha (the word means hidden or doubtful)?

The Apocrypha was added at a later date to the Septuagint, however the Jewish religious leaders never recognized it, as it did not match the supernatural inspiration or compare to the divine authenticity of the other 39 books.  Jesus never recognized it as well.  Although it contains some good history, it also contains some contradictory passages, which is the main reason it was rejected as being on par with the other inspired books of the Bible.  Even the Catholic Church did not officially recognize it until 1600 years later.

 The New Testament Canon (Standard).

 

Within the New Testament itself, an extensive internal verification was given for much of it.  Peter validated all of the writings of Paul, even though the two of them did not always get along and Peter admitted Paul’s words were hard to understand at times (2 Peter 3:15-16 and Galatians 2:11-14).  As previously mentioned, Paul validated both the Old and New Testaments in 1 Timothy 5:18.  Paul goes on to say in Galatians 1:8 that if anyone, human or angelic, should offer us an alternative gospel that God’s divine curse would be upon them!  Jude confirmed that the faith had been delivered, once for all, and that the words of Jesus Christ and the apostles were all valid (Jude 3 & 17).  The 27 books of the New Testament canon were “officially” recognized and accepted at the council of Hippo in 393 A.D. and this recognition has held since that time, in spite of many attacks against it.

What About The Gnostic “Gospels”?

The Gnostic gospels have been repeatedly used in an attempt to assault the canon of the New Testament.  However, none of these writings were done by first hand witnesses and most were penned well into the second and third centuries A.D.  These extra books were immediately rejected by the church leaders as being fraudulent, for they denied the humanity of Jesus (that he had a human body), saying He was only present in spirit.  Several other heresies are contained within them as well, which is why they are so popular with non-Christian critics.

What about the “errors” and “contradictions” in the Bible?

Language of appearance (or metaphors).

The prophet Isaiah used language of appearance, much like we do today.  In Isaiah 11:12 he spoke about “the four corners of the earth”.  Atheists jump all over this and say this proves he believed the world was flat and anyone who believes the Bible is true, must also think the earth is flat.  Yet, everyday we can turn on the news and weather report and hear about when the sun will “rise” and “set” each day.  Still, we know it is just the rotation of the earth and not the sun rising and setting.  The poetic books in the Bible, like the Psalms, use much of this kind of language.  Sadly, for centuries, cynics who hate God’s word have used these kind of examples to mock and ridicule the Holy Scriptures and those who would believe them, without just cause.

Copyists’ errors.

2 Chronicles 22:2 and 2 Kings 8:26 is an example of a copying error.  Was Ahaziah 42 or 22 years old when he became king?  He had to be 22 or he would have been older than his father.  Copying errors are generally very easy to recognize and resolve.  No copying errors have ever had any effect on the understanding of any of the biblical doctrines, as they appear in the minuscule and fairly mundane details, not in places that carry eternal significance, which is why I believe God allowed it (to test and reveal the hearts of men - for the righteous seeker a minor challenge to their faith and for the wicked to reveal their insincerity and rebellion - for it is written, "the righteous shall live by faith" and "without faith it is impossible to please God" - Romans 1:17, Hebrews 10:38 and Hebrews 11:6). 

Poor translations (into another language like English).

An example of this is found in Matthew 13:32, where Jesus was making a comparison of faith to a mustard seed.  The text states in the English “this is smaller than all other seeds”.  However, the Greek states that Jesus was saying it was the least of all the seeds in a local context of the area He was in, not the entire world.  Greek is a very precise language and English is not, as it has been very fluid, changing often over time.  Thus, there are many English language “distortions” from the Greek that have been conveniently exploited by skeptics to promote their unbelief.

Alleged Contradictions

 

Approximations (the partial and the whole)

Again, the cynics are looking for anything, not to believe, and so they often refuse to be careful or honest with the whole context.  An example of this would be in the area of approximations.  Numbers 25:9 lists 24,000 dying in relation to a particular event and 1 Corinthians 10:8 speaks of only 23,000 falling in one day connected to the same event.  The skeptic then laughingly mocks; explaining Bible believers must not be able to count either.  However, what they conveniently missed was the time frame within the context.  The 23,000 fell in “one day”.  The 24,000 was the total body count from the entire event.

Paraphrases

For instance, Luke 6 and Matthew 5-7 are considered by the skeptics to be the exact same account, yet it differs.  Jesus likely taught on the same topic many times during the years of His ministry.  Thus, the message would have had much similarity, but it cannot be expected to be a perfect word for word repetition.  Speakers will commonly vary their message to fit the crowd they are speaking to, so expecting a word for word match is ludicrous.  Also, Matthew was a direct witness and Luke went around interviewing several eyewitnesses compiling their accounts, thus this could simply be complementary eyewitness accounts of the same event.  Similar to eyewitnesses of a bank robbery, with several different accounts on how it went down, yet nobody would deny that the bank was robbed!  This is picking at the position of the gnats on the elephant, so one can attempt to deny the existence of elephant altogether.  This mentality is common among skeptics and it should be understood by anyone who would bother to listen to them.

The eyewitness accounts of the resurrection of Jesus Christ vary this way.  One witness points out two angels at the tomb, while another says there was one.  However, the witness did not say there was “only” one; they just focused on the one, which is not a contradiction, but simply another corresponding account from a different viewpoint.

Conclusion:  The Almighty Creator took the time to communicate His love and standard/terms for mercy through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in men and by the visitation of Himself in the form of God, the Son.  He has accurately preserved the record of this communication and His love for us in the Bible.  We have sinned against Him and death is the penalty for each sin we have committed.  We have built the house without windows, locked the door and set the place on fire.  He stands at the door and knocks, asking us if we want to be rescued by Him.  Unfortunately, most will reject His help (His forgiveness through Christ alone).  Instead, they will seek to find a way out of the fire in that locked room on their own.  But sin and death are too strong for them and they will never succeed, but rather parish in their own futile attempt at righteousness.

Answering The "Why God?" Questions.

Among the most asked questions in the history of humanity are the inquiries about why God allows things like suffering, injustice, abusive and hurtful criminal activity and sin in general to be so rampant on the Earth, the jewel of His Creation?

 

The answer is rather simple, but it is not that easy for the hardened human heart to heed and desire to honestly understand, because of what it actually points out.

 

First, God did not create human beings as robots, He gave us free will choice concerning our life here on Earth, as well as for our future destiny once we leave our physical, earthly bodies behind.  God created us to be able to have a deep, loving relationship with Him, on a very personal level; something you just cannot have without free will choice. Unfortunately, free will choice has a down side too, because rebellion, cruelty, hatred, dismissal, complete selfishness or apathy toward our Creator or our fellowman are just a few of the other options that choice makes available to the human race and we have the tendency to exercise these types of options in abundance.

 

The other great truth involved with the why questions is a major stumbling block for those who have exercised their “right” to choose to rebel (consciously and subconsciously).  It deals with the fact that God is the Creator and He has made all things (including humans) to be for His glory (not ours).  This means that everything is ultimately going to glorify the HOLY, ALMIGHTY CREATOR, and not one of us will stand in our own glory before Him, concerning the things we have done. 

 

Simply put, it is about HIM, not us.  We exist for His glory, or His purposes and plans to glorify Himself (Colossians 1:15-17). Most cannot accept this truth, and it would be a hard thing to endure if God was not HOLY, or perfect, righteous (always right) and full of the highest wisdom in all His ways, but He is (Isaiah 6:1-4 & Isaiah 55:8-9).

 

This is where we humans get into trouble, because we have a strong tendency to dislike God’s righteous ways (often inventing our own substitutes) and we rebel against our Creator. Sometimes it is open rebellion, but most often it is through a subtle form of rebellion, usually one which can be rationalized and justified within the realm of human reasoning, so that it is made out to be “okay” or "acceptable" for ourselves and our human peers.  A good example of this is turning the Ten Commandments into “the ten suggestions” or removing them entirely from our thinking (like in the public square) and doing just as we please, disregarding God’s clear instructions for right and wrong.

 

Our rebellion, and all the fruit from it, answers WHY so many things are wrong in this world. But, that is not the answer a rebel wants to hear, because it leaves them in a bad place (Revelation20:11-15) and they don’t want to give up their sinful rebellious ways, so they will continue questioning. 

 

But WHY DOES GOD ALLOW GOOD PEOPLE TO SUFFER AND DIE WITH THINGS LIKE CANCER?

 

First, God alone is “good”.  We humans wish to put our spin on what or who is “good”, then turn around and question God from our redefined position.  Second, sin has infected everything and everyone on the planet and this is part of its destructive power.  This is one big reason why God hates sin, because of the pain, suffering and death it brings to His creation.  Third, we are all infected with sin and there is only one cure, the blood of Jesus Christ.

But WHY DID GOD NOT stop the tragedy, or disaster, instead of allowing it to happen? 

For starters, this would be hyper-management and actually nullify free will.  Second, who would learn anything about sin or love under such a system?  We would just be mystified about all the intervention and never really understand the evil or consequences of the sin we kept wanting to commit.  It would really be a bizarre way to live.  God’s wisdom runs much deeper than humans care to think and that’s why we get into trouble every time we seek to judge God from our extremely limited perspective.  

 

But WHY DID GOD NOT DESTROY THE CHIEF REBEL (SATAN) RIGHT AWAY AND PUT AN END TO IT, BEFORE IT HAD A CHANCE TO GET SO BAD? 

 

God could have easily disintegrated Satan the moment he rebelled and put an end to it, but that would have only proved who was more powerful, not necessarily who was right.  Further, both angels and humans would have only served God out of the sheer terror, of crossing Him from then on, worshiping only His power, never really knowing His love, mercy kindness and forgiveness, which is no way to have a good relationship with anyone.

 

Yet, because God is love (1 John 4:7-8 & 4:16), He provided a way out for sinful rebellious humanity, by choosing to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for our sins by His death and sacrifice of His own Holy and innocent life on the cross, because sin requires the blood of the guilty, or the blood of a perfect innocent in their place.  No human is perfect, but Jesus being God, the second part of the Trinity (Genesis 1:26, Isaiah 9:6, Luke 3:22, Matthew 28:18-21, etc.), is perfect and was willing to obey the Father’s desire, to come and give Himself for us, to give us a way back to a right relationship with God (John 3:16, John 5:30, John 11:25, John 14:6 and John 20:19-29).

 

Unfortunately, most of humanity will not accept and receive God’s gracious free gift (Matthew 7:13-14) of payment and forgiveness of their sins through Jesus Christ, which comes with a sealed guarantee of eternal life with God (Ephesians 1:13-14).

 

No, most would rather continue in their rebellion and sin. Thus, they will become vessels for God’s wrath in the Day of Judgment (Romans 1:18-32 & 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).  God, the Son, Jesus Christ, is coming back very soon to put an end to the open rebellion of human independence from Him, via their free will choice, which has led to all of the destructive consequences of sin that we see filling up the Earth today.  For it is written, in the great tribulation God will pour out His wrath and punishment on the rebellious, to destroy those who are destroying the Earth (Revelation 11:18 & Chapters 15 & 16).  It is rather ironic that these people are many of the very ones claiming they are actually “saving” the Earth through things like the fraudulent carbon footprint tax scam (which is nothing more than socialistic theft, to redistribute wealth, help further destroy the middle class and enrich the elite ruling class with money and power).  Yet, their reign will be very short and they will not escape Jesus Christ's righteous judgment when He returns (Daniel 12:1-10 & Revelation 19:11-21).

 
Is There Proof That Jesus Is God?

Jesus did acts of God that no other person in all of human history ever came close to doing.   Jesus healed the lame and crippled, so that their shriveled limbs reformed into whole healthy legs and hands.  He cleansed the lepers, completely removing their flesh eating disease entirely, sometimes with just a word at a distance and sometimes with a touch.  He raised three separate individuals from the dead.  He opened the eyes of the blind on many different occasions (one of several feats that even the Jews knew only God could do). Jesus displayed supernatural power over the natural elements as well, by multiplying a tiny bit of food to feed thousands of people on two different occasions.  He walked on water and instantly calmed a fierce storm with three simple words, "Hush, be still".  Also, Jesus demonstrated power over the spiritual forces of darkness and evil, by rebuking them and casting demons out of people on many different occasions.  Jesus went to the cross and gave up His life for us, then physically rose from the grave three days later in a new supernatural body.  Forty days after this He physically ascended into heaven before many eye witnesses.  No other religious leader has come close to doing or claiming the things Jesus did, which are truly beyond compare.   

Only God has the authority to forgive, or fully pardon a person's sins! Jesus did this and then proved He had the right (or authority and power) to do it, by instantly healing a paralytic directly in front of the many religious leaders that were about to accuse Him of blasphemy (Mark 2:1-12 and Luke 5:17).  Jesus openly declared that He was God and this is THE VERY REASON the religious Jewish leaders finally accused Him of "blasphemy" and sought to put Him to death constantly throughout His ministry, even though He lived a perfect sinless life and did the miracles of God before their very eyes.

Jesus made it absolutely clear to the Jews that He was claiming to be God. This is why the religious leaders violently opposed Him and had Him crucified for "blasphemy" (claiming to be God) - see John 8:56-59, John 10:30-33, John 14:6-9 and Matthew 26:62-66 Also see, John 3:16, 18).

WHERE DOES THE BIBLE SAY THAT JESUS IS GOD? 

Peter's Confession of Christ
13Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" 
 14And they said, "Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets." (just like today, people don’t know who Jesus really is) 
 15He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" 
 16Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 
 17And Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 16:13-17) 
 (Here, we see Jesus blessing Simon [Peter] for his confession of confirmation, not denying it!) 
  
Another proof is that Jesus received worship, something no good teacher or prophet would ever allow, because only God should be worshipped, just as Jesus stated when tempted by the devil, “Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; and he said to Him, "All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, "Go, Satan! For it is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'” – Matthew 4:8-10. 
  

“But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me!’ Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, ‘You of little faith, why did you doubt?’ When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, ‘You are certainly God's Son!” - Matthew 14:30-33 

  
“The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.’ And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.” - Matthew 28:5-9 
  
“Jesus said to him, ‘You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you.’ And he said, ‘Lord, I believe.’ And he worshiped Him.” - John 9:37-38 

But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.  So the other disciples were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.  After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.” Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.” - John20:24-29
  
Jesus affirmed those who worshiped Him, never once rebuking any of them, which He would have been required to do if He were only a prophet or merely a good teacher!   Thus, those who make such claims (“Christians” included) clearly have no clue who Jesus said He is and demonstrated Himself to be.  In other words, they don’t know the real Jesus Christ at all (Matthew 7:21-23)!

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in (and through) the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.  5 For to which of the angels did He ever say,  “YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU”?  And again, “I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME”? 6 And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.” 7 And of the angels He says, “WHO MAKES HIS ANGELS WINDS, AND HIS MINISTERS A FLAME OF FIRE.” 8 But of the Son He says, “YOUR THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER, AND THE RIGHTEOUS SCEPTER IS THE SCEPTER OF HIS KINGDOM. Hebrews 1:1-8 
  
WAS JESUS CHRIST JUST A MAN?


1st – To declare that Jesus Christ was only a man would be the very equivalent of calling Him a liar or a lunatic, because Jesus made it clear that He is God 
(John 8:56-59 and John 10:30-33).  People today seem to stumble all over this fact, but the Jews in Jesus day had no problem understanding His claim to be God and that's why they wanted to kill Him for blaspheme.  The first hand eyewitnesses obviously knew a whole lot more than all the armchair historical revisionists of today. Sadly, most people just believe what they want to currently, because it's easier than facing the real facts (CINO's included - Christians In Name Only, which is well over 90% of the total Christian population, which is why quoting liberal [unbelieving] “Christian” scholars to disprove Christianity is utterly pointless, because it is like asking a fox if any chickens are missing from the hen house he is watching over). 

2nd (and bear with me on this) - Stating that Jesus could not have been "the Messiah" (the Savior of mankind and God, the Son) and that He was just an ordinary man does not work because of where it leaves all of us with God.  God has told us that sin requires a payment of a death, via shed blood.  But in order for us to be forgiven for our sin, that death must come from a sinless source.  And for us to be completely forgiven for all our sins for eternity, the source has to be in a human form.  However, no human is sinless.  Thus, we had an impossible dilemma, our sin drenched soul with no way to pay for it, other than going to Hell.

This is why God, the Son, was sent by God, the Father, to indwell human flesh and become the necessary sacrificial payment.  Jesus Christ lived out a sinless life of perfection before us so that He could be the required substitutionary sacrifice for our sins, so that we would not have to go to Hell to pay for our sins.  Because God is holy and just, He must punish all our unrighteousness fairly and without the covering of Jesus blood to have cleansed our souls that means we will literally have Hell to pay. 

Jesus even challenged His strongest enemies to prove He had sinned (which would have been easy to do if He was just a man), but they could not!  Instead, all they could to do was slander Him and say He had a demon.  "But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me?  He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God. The Jews answered and said to Him, 'Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?'" - The Prophet John 8:45-48. 

3rd (more on the spiritual perspective) - It is written, those who deny that Jesus is the Son of God, speak with the spirit of anitchrist. The Prophet John wrote back in the 1st century, 
"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming" - 1 John 4:1-3. 

If you wish to believe the lie that the New Testament was corrupted to a point the its message is unreliable, then you must prove it.  When, where, how and by whom?  The evidence must be shown to be conclusive.  Anyone who is willing to sift their way through all the evidence, carefully and in integrity will realize that there is absolutely no legitimate proof for such claims.  The so-called evidence presented by liberal scholars is easily refuted, but those who only want to believe their one-sided distortions won’t even attempt to honestly look at all the information to see the flaws in the spin that is being used.  Thus, if a person chooses to believe such deceit anyway, without really carefully examining it, then they have stated before both God and men that they would rather live in deception and love lies, than ever believe the truth (Romans 1:18 & 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)! 

It is written, 
"And they sang a new song, saying, ' Worthy are You (Jesus) to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation'.... saying with a loud voice, ' Worthy is the Lamb (Jesus Christ) that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.'" - Revelation 5:9, 12 (Also confer with John1:29-36.) 

In Heaven it is declared that Jesus is THE ONLY ONE worthy to judge, because of His sinless sacrifice!

And this is why the following is true, as it is written: 
“For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – Philippians 2:9-11 

The LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book - Exodus 32:33

The great white throne judgment of Jesus Christ:

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him (speaking of Jesus, see John 5:22; 27) who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.   And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.   And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.  Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire This is the second death, the lake of fire.   And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” - Revelation 20:11-15. 


Is your name in the book of life, or are you trusting in your deeds? Notice where everyone’s deeds will put them!!!

  

I have been talking about the real and historical Jesus Christ, not the invented "Jesus" of other religions that try to greatly lessen who He is.  This real Jesus is the One who came to me when I cried out to Him to forgive me, I have meet the authentic Jesus, the Son of God that Peter openly declared as being the Christ, the Son of the living God, which Jesus Himself affirmed was true (Matthew 16:13-17), and He has forgiven me and set me free from my sin and made me righteous through His blood sacrifice for me, so that I will now go to Heaven and live with the Father forever (1 John 5:13).

Jesus is like the water form of H2O. If we want to be cleansed of our sin, to receive God’s mercy and forgiveness, we must immerse ourselves in Christ, by giving Him our very life and soul, to do with as He pleases, through repentance of our sin.  We have been purchased with the greatest price of His blood to have the opportunity to be His possession.  Thus, He either owns us or He does not.  Only those owned by Him will have their name found in the book of life and go to Heaven (Revelation 20:15).

 Beyond 2012

 

In the year 2012, on December 21, many were saying the world would end.  This has primarily come from those who thought that the there is some validity to the prophecies that are based on the Mayan Long count calendar and the Galactic Alignment theory that has been put forth by the Masons. Supposedly, these two things were written thousands of years apart and they each predict Armageddon will be on 12/21/12 at 11:11 GMT. 

 

As far as the Mayan long-count calendar legend goes, at the end of each cycle, homosapiens supposedly come to a catastrophic end. And we are now toward the end of the fifth and final calendar. Oddly, historical proof for the four previous endings of humanity are seriously lacking here, but that doesn’t seem to impede the superstitious doomsayers. Another way some are phrasing this Mayan prophetic event is that it will be a time of "rebirth" for the human race and the world, where most of humanity will abruptly parish. But afterward, the destruction and death will be followed by a great time of renewal and peace.

An equally believed theory, not getting as much press says that in studying the Maya traditions of time measurements, it gives us an understanding that they had a cyclic time philosophy. December 21, 2012, represents the ends of a large cycle of time. Some believe we can find that they conceived the cycle endings not in some kind of doomsday or apocalyptic concept, but rather the idea of transformation of consciousness and renewal.  Subscribers of this theory say that on December 21st of 2012, you will wake up the next morning; and it will be December 22nd, and nothing will have happened.  Also, few seem to realize that the date is based upon the Zodiac signs, which are know to be off-base, or inaccurate, by several months.  So, it was very unlikely, even by the Mayans, that anything would happen on that date.


Interestingly though, along with the above theories, there is a reported mysterious sign of “the serpent holder” appearing in an unusual small gap on the zodiac between the so-called “age of Pisces” (this Current Age) and the “age of Aquarius” (the New Age soon to come) within an Egyptian pyramid.  Some are tying these events together to say a resulting ominous or important event would come to pass by 2012. 

 

All these groups and sources have one thing in common; they have been wrong time and time again.  The last time they hyped most of the same projections was for the year 2000.  Ask yourself a question here.  Would you invest your money with a financial adviser that had a track record of only guessing right one out of ten times?  Obviously not, so why would anyone believe these same false prophets about the future?  Would it not be better to invest with the experts, who had a track record of 100% accuracy?  This is precisely what the biblical prophets have on their résumé, with complete, verifiable historical confirmation to back them up.


With the elite globalists stating deliberate plans to create chaos and destruction with an economic meltdown for 2012 and fostering war around the world to follow it, which they plan to start in the Middle East and then have war spread to various other flash points from there, many might have bought into the 2012 Mayan doomsday/rebirth scenario, if they had kicked things off at that point.  And the Nostradamus hustlers did not waste this opportunity to sell several more books either, as they are saying that in “the famous predictions of Nostradamus” it indicates the possibility of a Third World War at this time (how convenient).  All of these alternate prophecies are meant to provide cover for the powers and principalities of darkness to nullify or at least minimalize the biblical prophecies, which would enlighten the masses to what is really going on.  Apparrently, for the sake of the elect, who could be deceived if possible (Matthew 24:24), the Lord did not allow the forces of darkness to utilized this hyped deception.

Further, their is a reason why God does not set specific dates in time; it's because of the free will He allows us to exercise.  Knowing the wicked heart of man and given our free will, dates could and would be manipulated.  So, for instance, if God said a particular calamity like World War III would start on December 21st, 2012, the rebellious leaders of the world would seek to refrain from war on that one day, just to prove God wrong.  However, with Satan's oracles giving such dates, it can be used to great advantage to deceive, should it come to pass on the date stated.  And as is common, when the devil's oracles fail, most people just move onto the next date, because they love lies and deception over the truth
(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)


So, let’s take a look at what the prophets of the Bible have predicted and see if there is any truth to the end of the world forecast for 2012, or if there is a clever ruse going on.  The major biblical end time prophecies stretch back from over 1900 to nearly 3000 years ago (coming from Jesus and His apostles to Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah and others).  The details they told us about the end of this current age (not the end of the world) are truly remarkable and astounding, and very much worth noting.

The biblical prophets have declared that great cataclysmic events will unfold, both in a natural and supernatural manner (Revelation chapters 6-19), causing almost all human life on the planet to come to an end, but within a seven year span of time (Daniel 9:27 & Matthew 24:22).  God will remove wickedness and pours out His wrath on sin in the last half of the seven years (Revelation chapters 15 & 16) and this is likely the reason why most people would rather not heed the biblical prophets’ warnings, even though they have been and are totally reliable.  Yet, after this coming purge great good will follow, as Jesus Christ will return to the earth and set up His millennial kingdom (a 1000 year time of global peace and harmony, like nothing humanity has ever experienced before).

 

Here’s how it breaks down with what the biblical prophecies said to look for:

 

     1.   The current system of old nation states will be collapsed and be replaced with a socialistic (and ultimately tyrannical) new world order of ten global regions with a ruler placed over each one (Daniel chapters 2 & 7 and Revelation chapter 17). Preview the EUROPEAN plan, already in place, which will soon fulfill the 10 TOES and 10 HORNS of THE FINAL WORLD EMPIRE before Jesus Christ returns, as was prophesied in the books of Daniel and Revelation!  [Update Note: It was discovered in March of 2011 that the EU website had removed the global map at the top of the link's page.  Currently however, you can still scroll down on the page and see the ten divisions for the world's nations that are planned.] Go to this link: http://ec.europa.eu/world/where/index_en.htm (Update!

The EU version was the most updated one I had found, but I am certain the New World Order folks will put out a final version soon enough!


     2.   An eleventh ruler will rise up after the ten (Daniel 7:8-20).  In a time of intense turmoil, this eleventh ruler will forge a special seven-year peace pact that will involve Israel and its detractors (Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 6:1-2).  These seven years that must yet be fulfilled, which completely rules out a 2012 "end of the world" doomsday theory!  The coming seven-year peace pact will signal the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week, or what many refer to as the time of the seven-year Tribulation, which is the beginning of the Day of The Lord.  This eleventh ruler is the Antichrist, but the world will see him as a “savior”.  This is why many of the false prophets are preparing the world for his appearance – “In the time of perceived doom, a hero will arise and bring peace, uniting mankind to usher in a ‘New Age’”.  Yet, unlike all of the false prophets, the biblical prophets predict this will be the false, short lived, kingdom of the Antichrist that will proceed the true age of peace through the kingdom Jesus Christ, which will be establish seven years later when Jesus returns and does away with the Antichrist and his followers at the end of the seven year period (Revelation chapters 19 & 20).  This could explain the intense and growing disdain for honest biblical eschatology by both the world and the increasing number of apostates within the Church itself.  If the serpent holder in the pyramid between the ages means anything, it would be the arrival of the Antichrist, who will be possessed by Satan/Lucifer.  Since the signs of the end of this current age are upon us (see below), this part of the false prophecy associated with Egypt could have some significant influence on the weak-minded and undiscerning.  However, it would not be any genuine good news, because the serpent holder would be the Antichrist.  Nevertheless, this would mean that the Antichrist could appear on the world scene directly following the year 2012, which is a real possibility, but it would still foil the doomsayers "end of the world" claim for 2012, because the appearance of Antichrist would have only signaled the beginning of the final seven years of this current age (not the dawning of a glorious new age of peace, which is the deception that will be put forth).  Should things transpire this way, you can be certain it will be used to claim that humanities' long awaited "savior" has now arrived.  The world will clamor after him and call him many things (i.e. the Christ or Messiah, the 5th Buddha, the great Avatar, the 12th Imam - Imam Mahdi, etc.)


     3.   Also, a great one world religion will be established around the same time of the signing of the seven-year peace pact.  Babylon the great, the mother of harlots (plural) will be the global conglomeration of all the false religions (including that which exists within most of Christianity) into the official and licensed (only legal) State sponsored religion.  Those who will not join with her will be condemned and labeled as criminals, terrorists and heretics, among other slanderous things.  This religious harlot will bitterly persecute and murder true Christians in the name of global tolerance and peace, of the religion for all humanity, while hypocritically engaging in depraved things like the slave trade and gathering immense wealth while much of the world starves (Matthew 24:9-12, Revelation 6:9-11 and chapters 17 & 18).


     4.   Even though the world will rejoice in their new “savior” and his special seven year peace covenant, a devastating war will follow almost immediately afterward (1 Thessalonians 5:3 and Revelation 6:3-4).  Then, very high food costs (Revelation 6:5-6).  Then, right after this, over a forth of the earth, more death through war, famine, pestilence (plagues) and even wild beasts attacking and killing people in large numbers will occur (Revelation 6:7-8).  Does that sound like peace on earth and paradise in a glorious new age to anyone?  Obviously the excuse will be made that a purging must be done to bring in the New World Order.  However, the true Messiah, Jesus Christ, will do it very quickly at the end of the seven years, and He won't need to make excuses for any dark acts of destruction, or call evil "good".


     5.   The truth of God’s judgment will be too much for the wicked and they will move to slaughter Christians wholesale, as an act of their rebellious vengeance against their Creator, which they hate with a vile passion (Revelation 6:9-11). If you want to know more, then just keep reading Revelation chapter six and on from there, or for a greater understanding go to the "Prophecy 101" and "Home" pages on this website.  Also, for a complete and well rounded understanding, consider purchasing the in depth study that brings all the prophecies together in a contextual manner that allows the reader to have a full comprehension of end time events - The Revelation Unveiled!


(Please read John 1:1-14, John 3:16 & 36, John 8:24 and John 14:6 and Mark 2:1-12.  Jesus is God, He loves you and He is the only one who can truly forgive you and set you free from your sin, which separates us from our Creator in Heaven.)

So, what happened to 2012???  The simple answer is that the global elite are patient and methodical to make sure that every nation is too far down in the financial pit they have created to crawl out.  Thus, leaving no room for resistance or escape.  So, they have just temporarily delayed their start date for the financial and military chaos they have planned.  The new time frame they have announced through their managers is the for sometime during the Spring of 2013.  They are very close to having every nation in debt to the point of no return, so those who would dismiss this threat do not truly understand the immense danger we are all still in.  Additionally, the Mayan (false) prophecies were never more than a "red herring" distraction, to be used to deceive or create more hardness and mockery against the true prophecies found in God's word.

A good way to understand our current situation is to compare it to a city under siege by a massive barbarian hoard, which surrounds that city for as far as the eye can see from its highest towers.  The Captains of the barbarians have repeatedly sent word that they would attack and destroy the city before the end of 2012.  Their General has simply made the decision to wait a little longer.  The hoards of warriors still surround the city and have gone nowhere.  The city's supplies have not been replenished and the inhabitants of the city are no better off than before.  

The city is what remains of our current civilized world, which is held together by the thinnest of fabric.  The barbarian hoards are represented by the Rothschild Cartel's vast and growing empire, including all who are held captive to do their will in order to maintain even the most meager sort of living (i.e. soldiers and other low end government employees).  The continuing threat is found in the collapse of the Petro-Dollar (see below to understand it) and the hundreds of trillions in debt tied up in the ponzi scheme called the Derivatives Market, of which four of the largest U.S. banks have over 262 Trillion in "asset" debt that will never be repaid.  The Rothschild Cartel bankers have been stealing money from the taxpayers (in "bailouts"), printing money without anything to back it and adding invalid digital currency to accounts to give their banks (and certain governments) the appearance of solvency.  Yet, even with all this help (cheating and theft) the balance sheet for the bank's assets still only reflect a very small fraction of their actual debt.  An implosion of the world's financial system is inevitable, because of who is in control of it and their desire to destroy the current system and replace it with a system that will allow them have complete control, to the point that no one will be able to buy or sell anything without their permission, which is exactly where the Bible told us the events would take us (Revelation 13:16-18).

My warnings concerning 2012 came merely relaying the Captain's threats, which they are fully capable of carrying out at the appointed time of their General's choosing, and from my understanding that the Bible's prophetic signs tell us this event will come to pass very soon.  There are many of these signs listed on this website for anyone to investigate and be informed by.  A key prophecy is from Jesus, who declared that once the major signs begin to unfold, the generation that sees those signs would not pass away before His return back to Earth, to defeat the wicked, including all their rulers, and set up His righteous kingdom.  Make no mistake about it, the time is extraordinarily close.

 An Extraordinary Prophecy of The (112th) Pope?

(I've left this article up on the website, because there may be more to Pope Francis than first meets the eye.  He is of Italian/Roman descent and he comes from the political/militaristic branch of the Catholic Church, the Jesuit Order. Thus, there is still a possibility he could fulfill the destiny of the final Pope.)

An Extraordinary Prophecy?

By Dr. Harold Lee Lindsey

The death of Pope John Paul II has brought about the most extraordinary outpouring of emotion for a world leader in history. National leaders from almost every nation, religious leaders from all faiths, young people as well as old people, people from every part of the earth – all express some kind of emotional feeling about the passing of this great church leader. Most of the world praise him as one of the greatest forces for peace in history.

Modern communication technology has helped make the pope's death an unparalleled event. The entire world has literally come together to praise this one man. I find that many sense that there will be some important and climactic consequences to follow the death of this pope.

As I studied the many Bible prophecies of the Last Days, I found a most unusual extra-biblical prophecy made by an Irish Catholic bishop in the 12th century. His name is St. Malachy. According to his biographer, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, in his book "Life of Saint Malachy," St. Malachy was known to have the gift of prophecy and even predicted the exact day and hour of his own death. St. Malachy was canonized in 1190 by Pope Clement III.

According to his biographer, St. Malachy was visiting Rome in 1139 when he went into a trance and received a vision. Malachy wrote down this extraordinary vision in which he claims to have foreseen all of the popes from the death of Innocent II until the destruction of the church and the return of Christ. He named exactly 112 popes from that time until the end (or the 266th overall Pope).

St. Malachy wrote a few prophetically descriptive words in Latin about each one of the popes. He then gave the manuscript to Pope Innocent II and it was deposited in the Vatican Archives where it was forgotten for several centuries. Then in 1590, it was rediscovered and published.

The interesting thing is that scholars have matched the brief 110 descriptive predictions with each of the 110 popes and anti-popes that there have been since Innocent II. Though they are a bit obscure, they have fit the general profile of each of the popes.

Now these are in no way the same kind of predictions we find in the Bible. But they do have certain relevance.

Here are a few examples:

Pope No. 108: Paul VI (1968-78). The prophecy for the 108th pope was, "Flos Florum", which means "Flower of Flowers." Paul VI's coat of arms contained three fleurs-de-lis (Isis blossoms).

Pope No. 109: John Paul I (1978). The prophecy for 109th pope was "De Medietate Lunae," which means "the Half Moon." John Paul I was born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light). He became pope when there was a half moon (Aug. 26, 1978). He died the next month right after an eclipse of the moon.

Pope No. 110: John Paul II (1978-2005). The prophecy for the 110th pope was "De Labore Solis," which means "from the labor of the sun." John Paul II was born during an eclipse of the sun on May 8, 1920. As the sun rises out of the East, so he came to the Vatican from the east. Wherever on the earth the sun shines, he visited.

Now, if St. Malachy is accurate, there will be only two more popes before the end of this world, as we know it and the Second Coming of Christ. I do know that the whole prophetic scenario of signs that Jesus Christ and the prophets predicted would come together just before His return are now in view. So what St. Malachy predicted is certainly occurring in the right time frame. Pope John Paul II was aware of these prophecies and at least once referred to them with concern.

According to St. Malachy, there will only be two more popes.

The prophecy concerning the 111th pope says of him, "Gloria Olivae," which means "the glory of the Olive." Could it be that he will be from the Order of Saint Benedict, also known as the Olivetans? Could he be an African, a continent symbolized by the olive tree?

The olive tree is also frequently a symbol for the Israelites in the Bible. Could this mean that this pope will be an Israelite who will be seen as the glory of his people? It bears watching as to who will be this pope. Cardinal Lustiger of Paris is a converted Jew and he is in the running for being the next pope.

But it is the prophecy of the 112th and last pope that is most fascinating. St. Malachy predicts, "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign "Petrus Romanus" (Peter the Roman), who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and (then) the dreadful Judge will judge the people."

If any of this is true, then I suspect that the 111th pope will not live very long. We are just too close to the final events before Christ's return for him to reign for a long period.

The most important part of St. Malachy's prophecies has to do with the events he foresees happening during the papacy of "Peter the Roman." He foresees great tribulations during his reign, ending with the destruction of the church and Rome. This is will be done by a dreadful judge who will then judge the world.

------------------------------------------------------

This website's commentary on this topic:

 

The timing for the finalé of Malachy’s predictions certainly fits well with the biblical timing of Daniel’s 70th week when taking into consideration the definitive ending of the 112th Pope. 

 

Also, the last pope (the 112th) that St. Malachy predicted seems to coincide strongly with a very interesting description of a certain biblical prophecy. For Malachy stated, “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign ‘Petrus Romanus’ (Peter the Roman), who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people”.

 

Could this be a parallel to the biblical prophecy concerning those involved in final world religious system, as described in Revelation chapters 17 & 18? For these religious individuals will suffer extensively through the first one half of the seven year Tribulation (the first half of Daniel’s 70th week), along with the rest of the world, meaning they will experience the first 14 of the 21 judgments from God in the book of Revelation, which take place within that three and one half year period (the seven seal and the seven trumpet judgments).  Yet, the recognized world religious system will receive a double portion of judgment - Rev. 18:4-6. Could this possibly fit the saying “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign ‘Petrus Romanus’ (Peter the Roman), who will feed his flock amid many tribulations”?

 

If Malachy’s prediction holds true, it appears the 112th Pope will be Pope Peter (and likely an Italian from the Vatican, with some even believing him to be the current residing ‘Black Pope’, the shadowy ruler of the Catholic Church who is said to dwell deep within the Vatican's underground structure).  Recently, all the Cardinals in the Catholic Church were named, except one.  This mysteriously anonymous Cardinal is considered by many to be the infamous ‘Black Pope’ who is said to actually be the one running the Catholic Church from a hidden headquaters within the Vatican, a man who is supposedly inspired by his direct worship of Lucifer.  The speculation is that he could be waiting to become Pope number 112?  Such an individual would certainly be aware of the St. Malachy prediction and seek to take advantage of it.  Well, we will not have to wait much longer, as the 111th Pope, Pope Benedict XVI is resigning by the end of February 2013, which is highly unusual, as Popes are not known for "retiring".

 

Now the final part of the prediction is just as intriguing, for it states, "after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people".  Notice it said "after which" the seven hilled city is destroyed and then judgment from God follows.  Just about everyone knows that the city of Rome sits on seven hills and since this is a prophecy about the popes, who reside in Vatican City, which is located in Rome, it is obvious that Malachy’s prediction is talking about the destruction of Rome.  Ironically, the descriptions given within Revelation chapters 17 through 19, as to how the world’s great false religious system is destroyed and judged, appear to be a remarkable parallel to this part of Malachy’s prophecy, a Catholic prophet.

 

The key to understanding Revelation chapters 17 through 19 is to realize that the Harlot (the future false world religious system) and the beast (the future world political system) are two separate entities.  Therefore, the Pope in no way fits the description of the beast, or the Antichrist, as some have ignorantly claimed. 

 

However, the Bible passages speak to another important figure, the false prophet, who will directly support the Antichrist, through mighty miracles (i.e. bringing fire down from heaven).  So, it will be interesting to see who emerges in this key support role.  Also, it appears that Rome will be nuked by some of the cronies (the soon coming ten new global rulers of the New World Order, who work for the beast, in order to place the Antichrist beyond just his political position, into the place of the world's ultimate religious leader, as he declares himself to be God and forces the world to worship him or die.  (I know this may sound crazy, but it is exactly the very type of Satanic insanity that is developing and was predicted thousands of years ago to sweep over the world.) 

Yet, near the midpoint of the seven year Tribulation, the city of Rome does apparently get nuked (Revelation 17-19), and once Rome has been destroyed, this causes the Antichrist to deposes 3 of the 10 future global world rulers (Daniel 7:8 & 20), apparently using them as escape goats.  This will most likely happen during the same period of the great Middle Eastern war predicted in Ezekiel 38.  After these amazing and disturbing set of events the Antichrist will exalt himself into ultimate power over the entire earth, with the aid of the false prophet through the implemention of the mark of the beast where the Antichrist is declared to be God, as described in Revelation 13 and 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. 

 

We still will have to see how these astounding prophecies all turn out, but it is certainly within the realm of possibility that St. Malachy's prediction could be for real, as the timing and scope of his prediction seems to fit extremely well with many of the Bible’s prophetically predicted events.

 AGABUS!

 

 

Piecing through the centuries his name cries out to us, for the message we must now heed.  But, do we have the ears to hear his clarion call?

 

Ever wonder why Agabus was given such a brief, but interesting mention in the book of Acts? Why would the Holy Spirit even have recorded what little Agabus said at all?  What difference does his one fleeting prophecy make for us today, because it involved what seemed to be a relatively minor event, back in the 1st century?

 

In light of our modern western culture, it is interesting to consider how this early Church prophet, Agabus, would be received today, with a similar message.  First of all, many in the Church would dismiss Agabus as a loon, because they are too sophisticated to believe in something that "has already passed away" or "no longer exists" (the gift of prophecy).

 

Yet, among those who do understand that the gift of prophecy still exists, well, perhaps half of them might listen to what Agabus would have to say.  However, many of those who would listen to a modern Agabus would not really take him too seriously or change anything they were doing (after all, famines and such just do not occur in the West).

 

Sadly, in the western Church today there would be a strong resistance to Agabus.  He would be frowned upon for being so "negative" and such an "alarmist".  His message would be largely forbidden or censored, as the vast majority of the Church would likely rebuke him for "spreading unnecessary fear" that would only lead to "discord" in the body of Christ.

 

More over, to “prove” Agabus was spiritually “off-base” the modern western Christians would piously quote passages like Psalm 37:25, "I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging bread." Or even Matthew 6:25-34 that states, 25"For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26"Look at the birds of the air, …. 34"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

 

As a result, Agabus's warning would go unheeded today and Agabus would largely be ostracized (possibly even vilified), if he persisted with his warning that God had told him to give. And the modern Church has the audacity to hypocritically criticize Israel when they refused to listen to their prophets.

 

Yet, look at how the 1st century Church responded to Agabus's prophetic warning in Acts 11:27-29. The passage states, "27Now at this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28One of them named Agabus stood up and began to indicate by the Spirit that there would certainly be a great famine all over the world and this took place in the reign of Claudius. 29And in the proportion that any of the disciples had means, each of them determined to send a contribution for the relief of the brethren living in Judea."

 

First of all, they listened to Agabus, rather than ignore him or intimidate him to be quiet about his "immature" and "less than spiritual views". Also, they did not piously recite Psalm 37:25 or the words of Jesus quoted in Matthew 6:25-34 to reprove Agabus for being such an "unbiblical and faithless troublemaker".  Rather, instead of silencing Agabus, they responded positively to his prophetic warning, passing it along and preparing (hence the mention in Acts), realizing that the warning about the bad news of the coming global famine was really God's way of preparing and positioning the Church for success in the midst of the coming difficulty, so that they would be better equipped to meet the needs of the suffering and share Christ (or take advantage of the crisis and make even more disciples).

 

Has the modern western Church possibly become so much like Laodicea that it cannot endure difficulty or suffering?  Will the real message of the biblical prophets continue to be silenced and cast out, with the good intent from God being misinterpreted, or misrepresented, as evil? 

 

Sure, we are not destined for the God’s wrath, but the modern Church is relatively clueless about what the wrath of God actually is, because from the time we walked through the church doors we have been unwittingly and repeatedly programmed with an inaccurate man-made concept that the entire Tribulation is God’s wrath, when the Bible defines it plainly taking place after the mark of the beast in Revelation chapters 15 & 16.

 

For those who have an ear to hear, great trouble is coming and will hit like a tsunami (the storm is coming to both houses Matthew 7:24-27) - the hand writing is on the wall and business as usual will soon come to an end.  You are strongly encouraged to go though the material on this website to get informed concerning the big picture about what all this will mean to us and how we should respond. 

 

“For this reason it says, ‘Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.’ Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is - Ephesians 5:14-17.

 

The time to become informed and act was yesterday – there is precious little time left!

 A Short List of End Time Events


Consider a fair question:  At what point should a person be willing to concede their alternate viewpoint when they see these things take place?  I am not a prophet and any careful and honest student of biblical prophecy should be able to read the hand writing on the wall.

 

Here is a short list of the order in which the end time events will occur.

  1. The steady increase on prices for the basic commodities, as the deliberate devaluing of the Dollar continues by the elite bankers, in their unrelenting effort to continue to in debt all the nations into insolvency and servitude. 
  2. A National IDs will be issued to control the world's citizenry.
  3. The financial "collapse" (crippling hyper-inflation). This will prepare the way for the global ten-horned New World Order to be established, look for a cashless alternative to be eventually presented, something like the IMF "Bancor", which could be set up within the IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDR) system (go to http://ftmdaily.com/ftm-radio-show/how-and-when-the-dollar-will-collapse/ or  www.EndofAmerica3.com for an expert financial review of where we stand economically and historically). We have now been told by Pastor Lindsey Williams, from his globalists insider that the Euro will crash first and then 2-3 weeks afterward the dollar will do the same.  He added that the derivatives market would also be a key lynch pin (see details on the homepage).  According to Mr. Lindsey's oil executive insider source, when the Euro crashes that will be the signal to those in the USA to get EVERYTHING they own out of paper (i.e. all cash from the piggy bank, checking, savings, stocks, bonds, certificates, etc.) and turn it into silver and gold, because anything paper will quickly become basically worthless in a matter of days.  The truth is you should begin to do this now, with all non-operational (extra) assets to get a better value for your paper money, because gold and silver are the currency of the Rothschild elite and they should move higher as the paper money keeps being printed.  More importantly, you will need a six months supply of food and water for your family to give yourself a sporting chance to make it through the ensuing crisis, which will see civil order break down and basic services hard to come by.   
  4. Martial Law will be enacted at this point in the U.S.A., if it already hasn’t been enacted prior to this, for some other event, like a massive cyber attack, a series of terror attacks or a pandemic, for instance. During the crisis, the government will do what ever it takes to mobilize, empower and take care of itself, with the average citizen’s welfare not a genuine concern for the government and its bureaucratic lackeys (remember hurricane Katrina and consider what would happen with a disaster on a national scale, instead of just one region).  In fact, we should expect our current rights under the 10 amendments to the Bill of Rights to be utterly trampled on and our resources plundered, while they vilify anyone who will not joyously agree with their pillaging, which will all be done in the name of "the good of the people".  They will distribute a little of their plunder for show, but keep the majority of the stolen goods for their own comfort.  Expect the socialistic government to aggressively attack anyone they believe opposes their agenda of complete domination and takeover, via media smear campaigns and with violent military and police actions.  Constitutional supporters, conservatives, militia, ex-military, independents, right-wing Christians, fundamentalist Christians, etc. will all be targeted, yet mainly in the order of their perceived threat level to those in government power.  People will be arrested and/or killed during this time, for as little as having been associated with certain conservative groups (i.e. you sat in a pew at the "wrong" church, which is now on the government's terrorist threat list and you will need to be interrogated to determine where your loyalties lie).  This is where we can expect to see the fulfillment of Jesus' description of the apostasy (Matthew 24:9-12), which the apostle Paul said must precede the Rapture that is within the day of the Lord (2 Thessalonians 1:3).
  5. Ten global regions, with a leader placed over each, will emerge from the chaos and the New World Order will be born.  Go to this link to get a preview of the basic breakdown on how the global planners intend to set up their new global political structure (http://ec.europa.eu/world/where/index_en.htm) [Note: It was discovered in March of 2011 that the EU website had removed the global map at the top of the page.  Currently however, you can still scroll down on the page and see the ten divisions for the world's nations to be fit into regionally.].
  6. A contrived “World War 3” will begin in the Middle East, likely with limited nuclear weapons being used (perhaps one on Damascus), and then more war being spread to certain flash points in other parts of the world.  This will be used to create great fear that “the end is near” from a global nuclear war exchange and utter meltdown.  Thus, the stage will be set for a badly needed "savior" with a plan of "peace".
  7. But, never fear, Antichrist is here, to "save" the day!  The 11th horn comes up among the ten and brokers a unique seven-year peace covenant with Israel and many other nations (chiefly this will involve the antagonistic Muslim nations and groups in the Middle East) to bring an temporary end to a potential global nuclear holocaust.  This is the beginning of Daniel’s prophesied 70th week (the Tribulation – the breaking of the first seal on the judgment scroll up in heaven by Jesus Christ), which is also the beginning of The day of The Lord (a ~1007 year period, which includes the Tribulation and the millennial reign of Jesus Christ on earth), which the apostle Paul said must precede the Rapture (2 Thessalonians 1:3).
  8. After this, simply read the judgments of the breaking of the next six seals (seals 2-7) and the blowing of the seven trumpet judgments, because that is the basic order that things will take place in.
  9. At the Seventh Trumpet, the kingdom of the world becomes the kingdom of Jesus Christ, up in heaven, where He has begun to reign over his bride, as all true believers, from Adam to the present, will have been assembled together up in heaven.
  10. Satan and all his minions are cast down to earth and Revelation 13 will become front page news.  Here is where the mark of the beast will be issued and every person of age (we do not know what the cut off will be, perhaps somewhere between 6 to 12 and up?) will be made to take the mark of the beast and worship Satan and his Antichrist as their god, or they will be killed (with beheading being the primary form of execution - Revelation 20:4).
  11. The marked followers of Satan and his Antichrist will rule the earth for about 3½ years of 360 days each (or 1260 days), but it will not be a happy time, as God’s wrath will be poured out on them and they will not be able to enjoy their brief little triumph (Revelation chapters 15 & 16).
  12. At the end of this very dark and evil moment in time, Jesus Christ will return with all His saints riding on white horses and slay the Antichrist, his false prophet and all of the mark followers with just a word out of His mouth like a sword.  Then, Jesus will establish His righteous rule on the earth for 1000 years and all the believers will have their new heavenly bodies and reign with Him.
  13.  After the 1000 years, Satan is released for a short time, gathering all who are not truly loyal to Jesus, living physically on the earth at that time, and coming against Jesus in Jerusalem in one last rebellion to supposedly overthrow Him. At that point, God, the Father, rains fire down from heaven on them, like He did with Sodom and Gomorrah, and they are instantly destroyed.
  14. Then, the entire first creation, everything physical in the universe, is dissolved and all of the souls of humanity are gathered together at the great white throne for a final judgment.  Whoever does not have their name written in the book of life is cast into the lake of fire for all eternity (Revelation 20:11-15).

 Counting Down The Top Ten Signs Of The Final Generation

Prior to Jesus Christ’s Return To Earth



 

The Number TEN Sign …:

 


Knowledge and travel will expand to a great degree at the end of the age  (Daniel 12:4). The exponential factor of increasing knowledge is one very significant and undeniable sign, as the total global knowledge of all that mankind now understands is doubling every year and one half to two years!  The computer chip, which was invented in 1948, as well as the emergence of the Internet, has aided dramatically in this historically unprecedented upsurge of knowledge.  Also, transportation has gone from the ancient mode of walking, riding animals, animal drawn carts and chariots, and small sailing vessels, to cars, curse ships, helicopters, airplanes, jets and space crafts. The amount of travel that people are currently doing in this generation is phenomenal and was completely unthinkable to most past generations.  All that this single verse of prophecy encompasses is even more amazing when you consider that it was written over 2,500 years ago, long before such things could have even been imagined!  Thus, this one verse of prophecy, alone, should cause even the most hardened skeptics to take pause and give some consideration to what the Bible has to say for our modern era.


 

The Number Nine Sign …:

 


False Christs and false prophets will become more noticeably increased (Matthew 24:5, 11, 23-28 & John 5:43).  “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many” (Matthew 24:5). The Scripture is clear about how Jesus Christ will physically and dramatically return to this earth. In Revelation 19:11-21, we have the physical, dramatic and all-powerful return described. The same is true for portions in the book of Zechariah chapters 12-14. Anything short of the described literal and physical return of Jesus Christ at the climax of the battle of Armageddon is an absolute counterfeit.

Yet, mainly due to ignorance and/or an unwillingness to believe the Bible, many people seem very willing to follow the deception of false Christs, which numerously abound. In fact, in the state of California (USA) alone, there are well over 2,000 people who are claiming to be Jesus Christ. It has become very difficult to even count the number of false Christs any longer, as there are so many who claim it today. 

False prophets, too, are prolific. They are both inside and outside the Church.  The false prophets outside the accepted norm of the Church are not real hard to spot, like the Edgar Cayce, Nostradamus and Jeane Dixon types, along with the other sources for the tabloid magazines that get about three out of one hundred predictions right, but usually the three “correct” predictions are so vague and general that they could fit just about anything. These false prophets are fairly numerable; especially when one considers and takes into account all of the psychics with their 1-800-hot-lines.  In stark contrast to this, the biblical prophets have a track record of 100% accuracy, which is far more intelligent and rational to rely upon, but they point to personal accountability, which is unpopular, so their words are commonly ignored, or worse, mocked and scoffed at by skeptical minds, who must believe they are so much wiser that their Creator.



The Number Eight Sign …:

 


Excessive lawlessness will mark out the final generationJesus indicated that lawlessness was one of the signs that would precede His return.  “And because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).  Lawlessness would be seen inside the Church, “Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.  Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?  And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS'” (Matthew 7:21-23).  And lawlessness would grow in the world, until the ultimate lawless one (the Antichrist) would come to rule over the earth - “Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to Him, that you may not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.  Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. … And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-10).  Lawlessness is rapidly growing in all areas of government and the corporate business world.  Stories of corruption and scandals are becoming regular headline news on a much more frequent basis.


 

The Number Seven Sign …:

 


The ability of people around the entire globe to witness a single, local event is now a reality (Revelation 11:7-13).  Revelation mentions two witnesses of the true God, who Antichrist will finally be allowed to kill just prior to the end of his reign, at the end of Daniel’s seventieth week.  Their dead bodies will be seen by people from all over the world and the wicked will throw their last party on earth to commemorate it, by celebrating the death of these righteous witnesses.  Amazingly, this type of global gala event was not possible up until the past few decades. Through planetary coverage of events, by sources like the BBC and CNN, through television, cell phones and computer technology, with satellites, it has become possible for the whole world to be connected to view a single local event, together instantaneously. This is just another one, of several prophecies, in which its fulfillment was not possible before our modern day of hi-tech tools.


 

The Number Six Sign …:

 


The ability to keep track of every person and every “legal” transaction will be required (Revelation 13:16-17). Technology, modern economics and big government control are in position to make this a reality. No other generation ever faced this, much less fathomed how such a thing could exist. This is another of many firsts for our current generation.  Imagine Marco Polo, Magellan, Columbus, Captain Cook, Lewis and Clark, along with every other great explorer being made to carry their national ID card, passport and visa every where they went! Only in this current time period have we known such restrictive measures of control, which are setting the stage for the global acceptance of the mark of the beast, by which no one will be able to buy or sell or even function in modern society without taking this mark on their right hand or forehead.  This type of modernistic sign proves that those from many past generations, who thought Jesus could return in their time, were strongly ill-informed in their understanding of biblical prophecy, just as so many misunderstand today in contrast, being utterly clueless as to how close we really are to seeing Jesus' return, very, very soon.


 

The Number Five Sign …:

 


The alignment of specific gentile nations will come together in a very particular way (Daniel chapters 2 & 7 and Revelation 16:12-16). A revived form of the Roman Empire was needed and we have seen this happen with the formation of the European Union super state. The kings (nations) of the East are mentioned as playing a role in the final battle of Armageddon and we have China, Japan, India, Indonesia, among others, who are poised to fulfill this prophecy.  Honest interpretation renders a deafening silence among the prophets concerning the United States of America, or some great king of the West, which indicates the prosperity and power of the U.S.A. will soon be significantly diminished, if not entirely wiped out.  In fact, none of the Americas are mentioned as playing a noticeable role in the final seventieth week of Daniel (the seven-year Tribulation period). 

We are not told what causes the shift in world dominating power from the U.S.A. to Europe; we are simply shown that the transfer will take place.  If one wishes to understand how this could actually happen, then they merely need to educate themselves on the world banking elite and their use of central banking systems to create national debts, like the Federal Reserve, which is not part of the government and truly has no valid reserves to back the reported “value” of its fiat/phony currency. 

By manipulating and collapsing of the economy, combined with a deliberate gutting of the infrastructure, through the GATT and NAFTA treaties by outsourcing companies and jobs, it will assure that the U.S.A. won’t have the resources to recover.  This could possibly lead to confiscation and transfer of key elements of the military arsenal, public lands, private property and even Citizens, as payment for the debt.  The free world must give way to a coming tyrannical world rule (Daniel 7:23).


 

The Number Four Sign …:

 


 See to it that no one misleads you (Matthew 24:4). The Holy Spirit throughout the New Testament prophecies echoes this admonition several times. “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron” (1 Timothy 4:1-2). Also see, 2 Timothy 3:1-8 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. The Lord has specified guidelines in the Bible, so that His followers would not be deceived and could easily distinguish the truth, from that which cleverly seeks to mimic it. 

However, since this is a sign primarily given to believers in Christ and not the world, which lives constantly under the influence of secular society’s seductive lies, quite often reinforced by false religion, most people don’t benefit from the warning.  The problem with deception is that if someone is deceived, they really don’t know it, and this ignorance is what empowers deceit.  Thus, because the majority of the people on the planet are relatively clueless concerning biblical truth, it leaves them helpless to be able to apply any discernment in defense of the deception surrounding them. And even though it is a sign of warning to believers, many in the Church do not practice the discernment they have been clearly instructed to employ in their lives from the Bible, which unfortunately reveals the serious lack of respect and care for the authority of God’s word, in their lives. 

Still, deception can be just as much a willful choice, as it is trickery and ignorance (2 Timothy 3:13 & 4:3-4).  One example of this can be found in the left versus right, false paradigm of politics that deceives and divides most people; when the real issue should be right versus wrong according to Biblical authority.

 

 

The Number Three Sign …:

 


The alignment of a Russian-Islamic coalition that will attempt to destroy Israel (Ezekiel 38:2-6, Daniel chapters 2 & 7, Daniel 11:40-45 & Revelation 16:12). These prophecies, given thousands of years ago, describe the exact alignment of the modern Russian-Islamic coalition, which will seek to attack and overwhelm Israel.  Therefore, over the centuries Russia would need to develop and become a powerful nation that would become a hostile adversary toward a future reborn nation of Israel, which is exactly what we have today, with the exception of the nation of Turkey, which is in the Islamic mix of nations prophesied.  Yet, Turkey is being targeted by radical Islamic groups for an overthrow of its current moderate government and it could fall very soon.  Turkey is currently friendly toward the west and Israel, but only within the controlling influence of its capital.  Turkey is very much like Afghanistan, once you move away from the capital, it is run by Islamic Shi'i law.  Also, for this prophecy to be fulfilled, most of (recently reborn) Israel’s surrounding Middle Eastern neighbors would need to be exceedingly antagonistic toward her.

The contrary religion of Islam was not even in existence when the prophets spoke forth who would be against Israel.  Yet, Israel’s neighbors are Islamic, with most being extremely hostile toward Israel.  The hostility is fostered by the very existence and survival of the nation of Israel, because it is absolute proof that the Islamic religion cannot truly be the religion of God, as its adherents claim it to be (God’s chosen people - Abraham’s descendants are in the promised land, and it’s not Islam!).  Therefore, the nation of Israel is a profound thorn in their broken theology, so they are hell bent on utterly wiping out Israel, in their vain attempt to nullify this evidence and defy God.

This could well be a big part of the reason behind the atheistic Russian leadership’s desire to destroy Israel, as well, for they have allied themselves with Islam in their desire for global conquest, but underneath it all lies the hatred for God and His chosen people. For what material value is there in that tiny piece of land that everyone seems to want so badly? This is clearly a spiritual battle, and Ezekiel predicted this unholy alliance would come together long ago, before Russian communism and Islamic fanaticism were even a thought in anyone’s mind.  Yet, their evil desire to thwart the purposes, plans and promises of God will be met with God’s fierce wrath and their armies will be utterly destroyed once they come into Israel to attempt to possess it (Ezekiel 38:14-23).


 

The Number Two Sign …:

 


Destructive powers will have to be so great that the very existence of the whole of humanity will be in real jeopardy of extinction.   “And unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days shall be cut short.” (Matthew 24:22). Biological, chemical and nuclear weapons with the ability to have them delivered by laser guided missile technology has put the entire world’s population in extreme peril of actual extinction, like never before. Bows and arrows and even the invention of gunpowder were never a real threat toward the planetary annihilation of humanity.  Yet, we now have a nuclear arsenal, just by itself, capable of destroying the world three times over.  Also, we must realize biologically that plague-like diseases were generally limited to specific geological areas, but no more, because of modern travel. Only in this generation has human extinction become a very real and ever present threat.



And The Number One Sign For The Final Generation,

Prior To Christ’s Return To Earth is …:

 


The prophetic fulfillment of the rebirth of Israel as a nation for a SECOND time! (Isaiah 11:11-12, Isaiah 66:8-9, Ezekiel 11:17; 20:41; 37:1-13, Amos 9:15, & Daniel 9:27; cf. Matthew 24:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:4 & Revelation 11:1-2). The fulfillment of this one prophecy is more stunning than perhaps all the others combined, as Israel’s second rebirth as a nation is an undeniable hallmark of end time prophecy. Israel’s existence in the final generation is a necessity for the fulfillment of the seven-year covenant (peace treaty) with the Antichrist and his subsequent violation of that covenant (in a temple in Jerusalem) half way into the agreement, as the aforementioned verses describe. From 70 a.d. to 1948 the nation of Israel became nonexistent. It is historically unprecedented for any nation to vanish for almost two millennia and then reappear right back on the map from where it disappeared!

In Ezekiel chapters 36, 38 & 39, the prophecy tell us that Israel will be reformed physically as a nation, but it will still be disconnected relationally (spiritually) with God until the Lord returns and He breaths life back into them (Ezekiel Ch. 36). Also,“in the latter years” a great war with very dramatic battles will come against Israel from Russia and its Islamic allies (Ezekiel Chs. 38 & 39), which can only happen if Israel exists as a nation. 

Additionally, Jesus' reference in Matthew 24:15-21 to Daniel’s prophecy relates directly to Israel at the time of the end.  The book of Daniel is the foundational key to understanding all end time prophecy correctly.  For Daniel was told in chapter twelve of his book that Israel would go through a time of great distress that would last for 3 1/2 years, and Daniel was to go his way, “for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time”.  Israel is essential, because Daniel's end time prophecies make no sense (and could not be understood/unsealed) without Israel in the picture.  Therefore, Israel is the key sign needed for the end of the age to come.  

Further, Jesus’ reference from the book of Daniel (Matthew 24:15-21) demonstrates that Israel will be right in the thick of end time events listed in Matthew 24 (verse 22 states that, “and unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved” – only possible after the nuclear build up in this generation), which is included as part of the signs that the final generation (Matthew 24:34) was to watch for {the word “generation” in the Greek, literal means “a whole multitude of men living at the same time” – Thayer’s Lexicon, Page 112}, which means that Israel's second regathering (rebirth as a nation) could not happen at any time prior to the end (i.e. 100, 200, 300 or 2000 years) ahead of all the other signs.  Israel's rebirth had to coexist with the other end time signs according to the prophets, because Daniel’s prophecies could not truly be unsealed until Israel came back into existence at the fulfillment of the SECOND regathering (Isaiah 11:11-12).

This is one of many very powerful reasons that demonstrate why attempting to use 1st Century events to say that end time prophecy has been previously fulfilled, or that Israel is no longer a significant piece of the prophetic puzzle, really doesn't work within any honest framework of history or logical thought.  So, the meaning in Matthew is clear, when we see Israel blossom as a nation, the return of Messiah is very near.  Moreover, the fact that Israel is constantly being threatened for utter annihilation by its enemies (the growing Iranian/radical Islamic nuclear threat) puts Israel in a very vulnerable position, to ultimately be willing to sign a peace covenant with someone who could offer them protection, which means that we are not only the concluding generation, but we are on the very precipice of the beginning of Daniel’s seventieth week (the seven year Tribulation) that will start when the Antichrist forges a unique seven-year Middle East peace pact!

 
If you found this insight helpful, then you may wish to obtain a copy of The Revelation Unveiled! by author Terrance G. Johnson, as the book plumbs the depths of the Bible’s end time prophecies and coordinates everything together to make sense out of it all.

Should A Christian Fight to Restore the Republic in the United States of America? 

This is a controversial subject and one that stirs up a great deal of emotion in many.  Yet, I believe it will become one of those pivotal issues that will speak volumes about how people are ultimately judged, rewarded or not rewarded when everyone stands before God to give an account.

This issue is complex, involving several different and very serious aspects, thus it is not easy to address.  The ideals of freedom, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are very good and often deemed necessary for an individual to have a hope of enjoying a fulfilling and prosperous life.  Further, even if fulfillment and prosperity are not achieved, most feel very strongly that it is still a God given right to have it as an opportunity, for to take it completely away would create an oppressive environment that most would not want to exist within, particularly those 
who have tasted its blessings.  So, from the human perspective, this alone is usually sufficient reason for the average person to rise up against tyranny, if it is within their means to do so.

Certainly, if this life is all we have to live for, then such a response would appear unquestionably justified and there really would be no point to discuss the matter any further among reasonable people.  However, Christians are instructed in the Bible to live for Christ, for Him to be glorified in them, to understand that this is only a temporary situation, in which we are aliens and strangers in this current world, and that our true home is in heaven.

Jesus spoke clearly about the core issue involve in this:
"He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal."  -  John 12:25

Many Christians in the United States that I have heard talk about this issue, believe very passionately that they do have a God given right to the Constitutional freedoms they were born with in place.  They correctly site the historical fact that the Constitution was constructed primarily by men who were influenced by their belief in God and the authority and importance of the Bible.  They believe that it is God's will for all men to live free, which is without question the best circumstances for humanity to be able to prosper.  Further, they are convinced that without freedom, the Christian message could not succeed.  Thus, they firmly believe that they must fight of physical freedom at all costs, because without it humanity would be lost.

If this seems to fit much of the way you believe, then there are some questions I think it would be good to consider.  Is the U.S. Constitution the 67th book of the Bible?  If not, then why would you apply its principles (although very good and wholesome for human prosperity) as if they had more weight than the Holy (God breathed) Scriptures?  Has Christianity ever succeeded in oppressive cultures?  Under the Roman persecutions or in Communist countries like Modern China (where there may be more Christians than there are in the entire population of the U.S.A.)?  Did Jesus or His apostles ever rise up against the tyranny of Rome in Israel or anywhere else they went?  Did they preach that we should fight for freedom so that the Gospel would be able to go forth?  Did Jesus or the apostles teach that we had a God given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of our own personal happiness?  

Any informed and honest assessment of the true teaching within the New Testament quickly demonstrates how the true Gospel of Jesus Christ has been Westernize or Americanized to fit the compromised and self-interested version of much of the theology we see passing itself off as biblical Christianity today.  Out of one side of the mouth comes the proclamation that "all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness", yet, often out of the other side of the same mouth comes a blatant disrespect for the written words of the prophets.  "It's too controversial", "it just causes division", "no one can agree about it", or "everyone has their own interpretation/opinion" and the worst one of all, "prophecy is not really important or essential for a person to be a Christian".

Prophecy may not be salvation, but it is still part of all inspired Scripture.  Additionally, we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, MIND and STRENGTH.  This would indicate we need to try really hard to understand everything in the Bible intelligently, including the parts we don't like or are difficult. Christians are admonished to pay close attention to prophecy, because it is a guide for us, especially concerning the matters associated with the end of the age (2 Peter 1:19-21).  Knowing prophecy accurately can literally make the difference between life and death for an individual and their family.  Simply refer back to how many of the Israelites that perished for ignoring the prophets words.  Many Christians today have the same type of hard heart, even though they believe they have immunity from such a condition, and they will likewise perish earlier than God's best intention for them.  

God does not need any of us to get His kingdom work done.  It is merely an allowed privilege He offers to us, which we can circumvent by our bad choices.  At times God is amazingly gracious and if He still sees some good purpose for us we might get away with cutting off an ear, like Peter did.  If not, then we will most likely might be cut down swiftly with the sword like James (John's brother in Acts 12).  Testing God with this in the last days is not a good idea, for now all who use the sword are guaranteed to die by it (Revelation 13:10).

Further, the Bible makes it clear that certain appointed hours are given for darkness to rule on the earth (Luke 22:53) and the time coming up shortly is one of them (Revelation 13).

If you have made it this far, then perhaps you are wondering what it is we are to do in this last hour before the Lord returns?  We are to simply do what He has told us to do all along, go and make disciples.  Lost souls are God's kingdom priority.  The fool kicking in your door and pointing a gun at you has precious little time left to understand the truth and make the wise choice that will prevent his soul from landing in Hell.  Will you send him to Hell defending your "right" to be physically free or will you pray and use the moment for God's glory?  Many will not be able to trust that God is sovereign over every atom and submit to the Lord like this.  But then again, do they really know Him?  

Those who are the most vocal about their guns and their right to defend what's "theirs" with deadly force, seem the least likely to witness to anyone at all.  Simply ask yourself, what is more important, a few more breaths for yourself, or the soul that may be eternally lost in Hell.  Unless a Christian has a correct worldview based upon the whole of Scripture and the superiority of the New Covenant, they will most certainly make bad choices that will shorten the good use God intended for them to experience for His glory.

Sadly, a great many "Christians" who think and act with a self-serving manner are likely headed to Hell themselves (see Matthew 7:21-23; 25:1-12).  This is why those who believe they are "Christian" are exhorted to test themselves to see if they are REALLY in the faith, or not (2 Corinthians 13:5).  Also, we are told, you shall know them by their fruits (Matthew 7:16).   

Political neutrality is the only wise position to take and hold, regardless of the criminal and wrong activities either side will commit against you and those you love.  Christians are not of this world, and as such we should speak peace and tell of the coming kingdom, while we trust our Creator to do His work to bring it to pass.

(Note: “Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.  That is easy.  All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for their lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.  It works the same in any country” – Herman Goering at the Nuremberg Trials

At the very least, we will be slandered - you can count on that.


A Little Known Truth About WAR

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


 Something For Those Who Refused To Heed The Warning


Tragically, many will not take the warning seriously concerning the collapse of the dollar, the ruin of the US economy or even the day of the Lord coming upon us.  As a result, most of these people will find their situation to be rather dire, as they likely made no preparations and the basic commodities to sustain life will be very hard, if not impossible, to come by in a very short span of time. 

 

With personal savings and most all normal resources wiped out, desperation, panic, civil unrest and dangerous conditions will be wide spread.  The unprepared, which rightly refuse to resort criminal activity, will have a difficult time coping or knowing what to do.

 

When the government finally begins to restore some order back to the country through martial law, basic food and water supplies will be less important than controlling the population. In other words, the police and soldiers are going to be concerned about whether you are part of a riot, robbery or uprising, then whether your baby has milk, or whether you have any food or water. Anyone who gets angry about the fact that government (the politicians, bureaucrats and the foot soldiers) doesn’t really care if you and your family starves, or dies of thirst, will quickly find themselves being shipped off to a FEMA containment facility (prison camp).  If anyone tries to get physical about it, they will likely be shot on the spot, because control is all that will matter to the government in such a massive crisis.

 

So, here is some advice concerning what you need to first come to terms with, let go of all the dreams and plans that you had for “your” life or you will remain too traumatized to be able to think straight and you will continue to make very bad decisions that will only hasten your demise.  If you had a pension or something put away for retirement in paper, forget about it, because you will never get your paper retirement “nest egg” back, ever.  It’s gone, just accept it, have your little moment of grief, and move on. 

 

Life will be very treacherous and fleeting from the collapse onward, so don’t believe ANY promises to the contrary, because they will all be empty lies.  Therefore, you will need to make your peace with God, through Jesus Christ, because time will be short for everyone (scroll to the bottom of this page for help with this).  Sit down and make a list of your tangible assets, food, water, tools, valuables and items that you might be able to barter.   If you have a very good friend or relative, especially one that lives away from the urban areas, who prepared and is willing to barter, share, or put you up for awhile, then that might buy you a little more time, if you are able to get to them.

 

However, you should not feel too bad though, regardless of your circumstances, because when this hits the fan over 99% of the people on the planet will be dead in less than ten years. When the seven-year peace treaty is signed, then you can make it seven years until most everyone will be dead, with many dying right at the end of that seven years, because they took the mark of the beast.  Sorry that I can't give you more positive news concerning that, but that's just the way the biblical prophets break it down for us.  In other words, God told the prophets to tell us what would happen, and God does not lie.  So, it is what it is. 

 

The mark of the beast will be offered to "give you hope", but it is the ultimate rip off, because while it will buy a person 3½ more years to live on earth (and that’s all it will buy), it comes with a horrible price tag, as it will guarantee a person certain death within less than four years and your soul a permanent ticket into hell for all eternity (Revelation 14:9-11 & 19:11-21)! Oh, and did I mention that those extra 3½ years will be a literal hell on earth, as God pours out His Wrath (Revelation chapters 15 & 16)?

 

The gruesome truth is that over half of the world’s current population will be dead within 3½ years of the signing of the seven-years peace pact.  This could easily take place by 2016-2017.  So, again, getting your soul right with God for eternity is the real issue for anyone with even the smallest measure of good sense.

 

This is the end of the age after all and no wishing it away will change anything one tiny bit. The pages from the book of Revelation will come to life before our very eyes.  For anyone who needs some kind of evidence to believe, they will have more than enough once this all starts.

 

Consequently, facing the reality of the situation is the only smart and wise choice to make, as denial of the truth never changes it.  Nevertheless, most people will not be real, so if you find yourself siding with the majority and viewing the state of affairs some other way than what the Bible honestly states, beware, for broad is the way to destruction and many are those who go down it (Matthew 7:13-14).

 

God is doing it this way to force all of humanity off the fence to make their choice.  It would be better to surrender to His lordship and ask forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ, the only sin solvent or remedy available to mankind, than to die in your sin and paying the price for it in the lake of fire for all eternity (John 5:24, 8:24 & 14:6, along with Revelation 20:11-15).  The choice is yours, however choose wisely, because once you draw your last breath in this world, you will not have a second chance to change your mind, as the deal will be sealed forever (Hebrews 9:27).  So, don’t gamble or mess around, for you do not know if you have tomorrow (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Why Didn’t The Rapture Happen on May 21st, 2011?

The Rapture could not have taken place on May 21st, 2011 as some were running around the U.S.A. declaring.  Biblical illiteracy is the only reason anyone would even have ever listened to this remarkably ridiculous prediction of Harold Camping.  Further, due to a large amount of ignorance concerning end time biblical prophecy within the Church, there was not a unified voice of warning, education and condemnation against such an obvious misleading deception, which has only increased the opportunity for the mockers and scoffers to howl all the more against any in the Church who would believe in the literal second coming of Jesus Christ, as the Bible does describe it.

As stated, the primary problem that now exists in the Church is biblical ignorance.  A secondary problem exists with a minority in the Church (generally evangelical Christians) who actually do know something about biblical prophecy, but it is very often only minimally correct.  This generally amounts to numerous people knowing just enough to be embarrassingly foolish and/or dangerously wrong. 

It also explains why a united voice cannot be lifted up against false prophets, because it generally is a top-down problem within the Church.  If Christian leaders understood 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 in their plain context, then the Harold Campings of this world would be out of a job and they would have to go to another religion to peddle their subjective faith (utter nonsense).

Why? Because the Bible tells us that the Rapture cannot come until after the Antichrist is revealed and the Day of the Lord has begun. This has not yet happened, so Mr. Harold Camping's predictions were automatically wrong!  Additionally, predicting an exact day is impossible to do (Matthew 24:36).  But because so few actually understand the prophetic timing given in the Scriptures for the Rapture, the false prophets and teachers go largely unchecked.

The May 21st Rapture was a false prophecy generated by Harold Camping, a man who appears to be seriously challenged when it comes to proper hermeneutics, biblical interpretation and any personal integrity. 
Jesus Christ gave us a very literal warning that no man could know the exact day or hour of His return (Matthew 24:36), to protect us from being duped by the many false prophets that He knew would come, like Mr. Camping. 

But this does not mean we are unable to understand or discern anything about Jesus second coming.  For Jesus did give us signs to discern, to be able to comprehend the general time frame, but never the exact day or hour. This single sentence, from the lips of Jesus, is enough for any rational person who takes the Bible serious to have dismissed Harold Camping predictions completely However, in this case Mr. Camping gave us much more to go on.  When we take a look at the numerical and "scientific" & "historic" voodoo he used to come up with his conclusion for the Rapture (and the end of the world six months later in October of 2011), it is an unbelievable mess of pure nonsense that simply demonstrates the appalling ignorance that now exists within Christendom!

Here is what is being reported: "Asked how he (Mr. Camping) arrived at the date, he opened his Bible to Genesis and said Noah loaded animals into the ark in 4990 B.C., a number he said he arrived at years ago after looking at carbon dating, tree rings and other data. Paging forward to 2 Peter, he read aloud, "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years is one day."  Leafing back to Genesis, he said that the seven days Noah spent loading the ark was really 7,000 years. He then added 7,000 to 4990 B.C to arrive at 2010. He added one more year, he said, because there is no year one in the Bible.  As for the exact date of May 21, he pointed again to Genesis, which says the flood began on the "17th day of the second month." According to the Jewish calendar, which he believes God uses, that is May 21. "Now I am telling you, that gets pretty heavy when you see this coming right out of the Bible," he said, looking up from his Bible's dog-eared pages." [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/22/selfproclaimed-prophet-sp_n_839261.html.]

Let’s examine Mr. Camping’s diagnosis.  What artifacts or other material, which has been authenticated to the time of Noah's flood, did Harold Camping supposedly use here to supposedly ascertain the date?  Most reputable scholars agree that the facts demonstrate, from both history and science, the flood of Noah's day took place sometime between 4500-4400 B.C.  No one is able to honestly determine an exact year from all the information that is available.  Therefore, 4990 B.C. was nothing more than Mr. Camping's personal, random selection (guess), which is still off by about 500 years, according to the best evidence.  Saying that Noah loaded the animals on the ark for 7000 years, by twisting 2 Peter out of context and then attempting to apply that misuse to Genesis, is pure fantasy and delusion of the first order.  Mr. Camping violated every proper method of interpretation, as well as 2 Peter 1:19, which tells us that there can be no private interpretation of the prophetic scriptures. 

 

How anyone could fall for that kind of gross manipulation of scriptural and historical context is beyond all reason.  God instructed believers to love Him with all their mind too and anyone listening to Harold Camping is clearly not obeying God in that command.  Even the Bible tells us that nobody lived for 7000 years!  It is puzzling how anyone at all actually listens to this man, much less follows his teaching, by abandoning all reason (and possessions), to run around and proclaim Camping’s folly publicly).  This is especially true when it was demonstrated that Harold Camping held on to his possessions and he was preparing for another broadcast for May 23rd!  There is too much fame and fortune for Camping to give up his con, so he will likely just massage the Bible and manufacture some more false dates for any sucker that is stupid enough to listen to him.

 

There is one great difference between genius and stupidity, genius has its limits.

Sadly, the world and the devil will have a great time with this counterfeit "evangelical Christian" prophecy.  It will be used to deride the real prophetic truth found in God's word, which is designed to enlighten people and turn them back to God.  Worse, Harold Camping is only one of thousands of false prophets that will be raising a counterfeit and distracting voice in the coming difficult days ahead, so that people will be less likely to take an honest look at the real thing. 

Satan is afraid of God's prophetic word, because it fully exposes his deception. Thus, he uses false prophets and false teachers for the world's consumption, knowing the media will take the counterfeits and run with them, making all who believe in the genuine truth of God's prophetic word to appear as nothing more than circus clowns.  Use this website to examine the evidence for yourself, or let those with poor theology, the counterfeits and the media tell you what to think.  It is your choice.

 Darwinian Evolution Is Dead!

(The Mythology of Darwinian Evolution Has Now Been Completely Eliminated By True Science)


Although this brief article can in no way attempt to address the myriad of issues that have been misrepresented through the “theory” of Darwinian evolution, what it will do is demonstrate why such evolution is not scientifically credible, meaning there is an alternate, true answer for every argument that has been spun to perpetuate the myth of evolution, as if it were a scientific fact.

 

We now have unshakable evidence from science that proves evolution for living systems is fundamentally flawed at its root source, as well as ill-equipped in its main functioning mechanism to succeed.  And one must realize that if the foundational premise of evolution is unworkable (beyond all realistic scientific possibility) and the primary method it is supposed to employ has been shown to be non-operational, then everything else built upon these unsound ideas cannot be true and will fail any honest test of science applied to it as well.

 

False Assumption # 1:  Living Systems Originated By Being Formed From Non-Living Chemicals

 

Other names for this are spontaneous generation, abiogenesis or, my favorite, a pseudo-scientific fairytale; a false concept that has been disproved more than once by good science through the centuries.  In separate experiments by William Harvey, Francisco Redi and Louis Pasteur, spontaneous generation was shown to be a completely false hypothesis.   The “goo-to-you”, “molecules-to-man” belief (religion) has been around for many years, even though it has been consistently and decisively refuted by all good observable science, i.e. the scientific law of biogenesis which states that living systems (life) only come from other organic life.  And the 2nd law of thermodynamics, which states that all things observable are truly moving from a state of high organization to a state of lower organization.

 

Additionally, all the other scientific laws concerning chemistry and physics conclusively demonstrate the impossibility of life coming together at the molecular level within, and out from, an imaginary primitive soup.

 

There are eleven things needed, in perfect concert together, to create life from non-life:  the right materials, the right conditions, the right products, the right kinds, the right amounts, the right reactions, the right locations, the right sequences, the right information, the right structure and the right function.  If just one of these needed things falls short in the initial stage to produce life, nothing living will be produced. 

 

Yet, we have gained immense knowledge in how these processes work on the molecular level and scientists have been able to observe the absolute failure of ALL of these conditions at each of the eleven stages.  That’s right, eleven out of eleven fail to have, or do, what is required for life to even have a chance to develop! 

 

What scientists do observe is a phenomenally brilliant, multifaceted and interactive design and function within all living systems, along with an unknown force/power holding all the atoms together, which allows these systems to exist and operate in amazingly marvelous and astoundingly wondrous ways.

 

Listed below are just a few of the life halting catch-22’s involved in these eleven steps that make spontaneous generation a complete impossibility of ever being or becoming a reality, because of the scientific laws of chemistry and physics won’t allow it to ever happen. The amazing thing is that this has not stopped the atheistic “scientists” from vainly pursuing to find some way to prove it anyway. They remind one of those who believe the Earth is flat and say they can “prove it” or those who search for the mythical pot of gold at the end of every rainbow. It is truly delusion at it worst, yet this pursuit of absolute madness is often funded by our hard-earned tax dollars.

OXYGEN destroys the formation of the amino acids necessary to make life, through oxidation, which stops all synthesis. Yet, oxygen’s presence is required for the protection and support of these same materials, making it indispensable for the beginning processes of life. Oxygen has been found in abundance in earth’s foundational rocks, which ends random chance notion, because oxidation would have been destroying any possible initial production. This is why Stanley Miller left oxygen out of his apparatus and his idea doesn’t work out in the real world.

FORMALDEHYDE that would be needed to produce the sugars would disproportionately produce amines or dead end products of no use for life. In other words, formaldehyde would fix any proteins as soon as they would form, rendering them useless.

AMINO ACIDS are the building blocks of proteins and they are either right-handed or left-handed. What few people realize is that living organisms can only have 100% left handed amino acids in their proteins, or no functional life exists. Yet, all the natural, observable laws of physics and chemistry consistently demonstrate a mixture of the right-handed and left-handed amino acids that is nothing even close to the 100% needed for life. In other words, all natural processes, regardless of how much time they are given, can never produce the pure left-handed chains of amino acids needed for life. Stanley Miller experiment did not produce anything close to the pure left-handed chains of amino acids needed for life; a fact conveniently left out of all biology textbooks.

SUGARS are either right-handed or left-handed, as well, and sugars required for living organisms must be 100% right-handed or no functional life can exist either. And yes, you guessed it; all the natural, observable laws of physics and chemistry consistently demonstrate a mixture of the right-handed and left-handed sugars, which can’t be overcome through prolonged and stubborn denials. The same line of reasoning applies to the sugars as it did to the amino acids. If there is just one left-handed sugar within the chain of the DNA, it’s dead on arrival! “Mother Nature” can’t make what the naturalists require in their formula, she just doesn’t have it in her.

HEAT is the energy needed to form amino acids. But, the very same heat/energy needed to form the amino acids would absolutely melt or vaporize any amino acids that might of had any chance to develop! This is why Stanley Miller cheated and put a trap in his apparatus to keep anything that did develop away from the heat.

PROTEINS are necessary to make DNA, but the DNA contains all the necessary information to form the proteins. This is like having a DVD with the instructions on how to build a DVD player on it, but not having a DVD player to play the DVD on to get the information. Without some form of intelligent intervention, the DVD player would never get built!

In short, this is the ultimate demonstration for proof of the law of biogenesis (that life can only come from life), and it should close the book on the fable of spontaneous generation from a big bang theory once and for all, for any truly honest intellect anyway.

False Assumption  # 2:  Living Organisms of Lower Species Evolved Into Higher Species

 

The main mechanism for Darwinian evolution has always been believed to be mutations.  Through mutations (small “positive” changes over lots of time) amoebas are said to “have evolved” into man.  Much creative story telling has taken place to sell this idea to the public, on how one thing evolved into another and into another and another, until man arrived on the scene, and all this has been explained via mutations (even though this hypothesis clearly violates the scientific 2nd law of thermodynamics). 

 

However, we now know from the study of genetics that the true account of what really happens with mutations is just the scientific opposite of what Darwin’s “theory” requires.  An unacknowledged law of genetics demonstrates that with every mutation there is ALWAYS A LOSS OF GENETIC INFORMATION! (I say “unacknowledged law”, because we can observe it consistently, without exception, in the present on an ongoing daily basis, with our senses, just like the law of gravity.  The reason it is being ignored, and even censored from the public, is that this fact absolutely nullifies Darwinian evolution).   It is not uncommon for powerful evidence like this to be withheld from the public by the very institutions that we are supposed to trust to inform us (i.e. the government, secular scientists, educators and the mainstream media), and it should instill both outrage and awareness to the rational individual, as to how far and deep this deception actually goes.

 

So, why is the consistent loss of genetic information so significant?  Well, for Darwinian evolution to work, where one species supposedly evolves upwardly into another, we would need more information added in, not information taken out of the process.  Additionally, there would be the miraculous need to perfectly rearrange any added information, if it had ever been able to arrive in the first place.  Even though this issue of rearrangement is basically irrelevant, because information is never added through mutations, it is worth noting the absolute hopelessness that any added information would have to take root in the right kind of structural positions, or be able to function beneficially toward any upward evolution of species.  Let’s look at an example of this.

 

The evolutionists have stated that because the chemical composition of humans and chimpanzees is very similar it “proves” we have a common ancestry.  Yet, between a chimpanzee and a man, there are over 60 million encoded differences in a single DNA molecule.   There are at least 50 trillion of these differing molecules in the cells of a human body.   All 60 million differences in each of the 50 trillion of DNA molecules would all have to reorganize themselves, in an instantaneous, miraculously perfect, synchronized event to have a chimp transform into a human.   So, even though the chemical makeup is 98% the same for man and chimp, it is a statistical and practical impossibility for a chimp to change into a human.  Knowing this, the evolutionist is forced to utilize the magic element of long periods of time and random chance events to appear to cancel out this problem (even though the 2nd law of thermodynamics makes time the actual enemy of such a postulation, due to chaos that is created over time, not  order).

 

However, the problem remains, regardless of how much time or how many “positive” mutations one would give to the chimp to change.  Why?  Because it turns out the numerous changes that are actually required for such a significant change, from one type of species to another, are totally lethal for living systems!  Dr. Barney Maddox, a leading genetic genome researcher, put it this way, “a change of only 3 nucleotides is fatal to an animal; there is no possibility of change”. (From the Human Genome Project, Quantitatively A Disproof Of Evolution, CEM facts sheets.  Cited in “Doubts About Evolution?”) 

 

Let’s see what the math tells us: I believe 3 nucleotides are less than (50 trillion times 60 million) or 30 to the 21st power nucleotides changing all at once, isn’t it?  That would be lethal to the 22nd power, which I’m fairly certain qualifies the process as permanently unfeasible and entirely hopeless (or dead). 

 

So, in conclusion, even if all the mutations were positive (which they virtually never are), adding in the appropriate kind of new information (which doesn’t happen, because there is always a loss of information), and the mutated nucleotides all went to the exact places they would need to be to work right (you would have a better chance of winning the lottery 60 times in a row) and then they perfectly functioned with everything else (which only happens in myths and fairytales, but not in real life) this change would so completely overwhelm the species’ DNA that it would mean instant extinction anyway, not Darwinian “Macro-evolution” into a higher species!  Therefore, Darwinian evolution is indeed dead and so is naturalism or the materialistic worldview!  Thus, the false ideas from this flawed worldview should not be accepted or ever mixed in with any other worldview.

 To Honor The Prophets, Should Not A Sincere Muslim Know, Since Their Very Words Are The Foundation Of What Islam Is Based Upon? 

 

"But they refused to pay attention and turned a stubborn shoulder and stopped their ears from hearing.  They made their hearts like flint so that they could not hear the law and the words which the LORD of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets; therefore great wrath came from the LORD of hosts". – The prophet Zechariah 7:11-12

 

Is there really true respect for the Prophets today?  If their words have really been corrupted, then why do their predictions keep coming true?  Obviously, the prophets have been preserved in tact, today, and they should be heeded and respected.

 

Have you heard about what Isa (Jesus Christ) said, that come to pass – when we will all come to the same place one day in the future?

 

 11"Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.

 

 12And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

 

 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.

 

 14Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire This is the second death, the lake of fire.

 

 15And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. "   [The final judgment at the Throne of God – From the Revelation of Isa (Jesus Christ) 20:11-15 (Holy Scripture)].

 

   Did you notice that everyone trusting in their deeds, which are listed books of the deeds (all our deeds, good and bad combined), ended up in hell?  If you would like to know how your name can be written in the book of life, so that you can go to heaven, then be sure to go to the bottom of this page and read about it after you finish with this presentation.


 Isa (Jesus Christ) also said:


"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." – Matthew &:13-14


"Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I AM, you will die in your sins." - The prophet John 8:24


"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."  - The prophet John 3:16


"He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." - The prophet John 3:36


The prophet Isaiah spoke of this same Messiah that would come, born of a virgin, and suffer for the sins of many.


Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel (Immanuel means God with us). - The prophet Isaiah 7:14


For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. - The prophet Isaiah9:6


But your iniquities (sins) have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. - The prophet Isaiah 59:2


Again, The prophet Isaiah, prophesying about the suffering and crucifixion of the Messiah said, “So His appearance was marred more than any man, And His form more than the sons of men.  Thus He will sprinkle many nations, Kings will shut their mouths on account of Him; for what had not been told them they will see, and what they had not heard they will understand.  Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?  For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.  He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and like one from whom men hide their face, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.  Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.  But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.  All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.” - The prophet Isaiah 52:14 – 53:6


Even King David prophesied in Psalm 22 about the same suffering and crucifixion of the Messiah when he said, "Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning. But I am… a reproach of men and despised by the people…All who see me sneer at me; they separate with the lip, they wag the head, saying, ‘Commit yourself to the LORD; let Him deliver him; let Him rescue him, because He delights in him.’ I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax;  it is melted within me.  My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaves to my jaws; and You lay me in the dust of death.  For dogs have surrounded me; a band of evildoers has encompassed me; they pierced my hands and my feet.  I can count all my bones.  They look, they stare at me; they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots." 


David’s Prophecy was written well over 500 years before crucifixion was even invented as a means of execution.  The eyewitnesses in Jesus day recorded these exact events happening to Jesus when he was being crucified (Matthew 27:35-44, Mark 15:24-32, 23:33-38 and John 19:18-27).


But have the prophets from the Holy Scriptures been mistranslated in Isaiah and the Psalms, as some have claimed???


   Proof dispelling this popular misconception comes within the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls (1947 – 1956) in eleven caves along the northwest shore of the Dead Sea.  The Dead Sea Scrolls have been accurately dated back to 250 – 400 B.C., and when they were compared to modern copies of the Holy Scripture that dated back to 800 A.D., they demonstrated that the current copies of the Holy Scripture have not been changed in their meaning at all!  Thus, when any person or book contradicts the Bible on these prophecies, they are clearly in error, because the ancient Holy Scripture’s accuracy has been absolutely verified, pre-dating them all.  (Also, see The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict, by Josh McDowell, for a mountain of further evidence concerning the accuracy of the Bible, historically, scientifically and prophetically.)

  

    Finally, allow me to very briefly offer one more reason to bring greater understanding to why all I have been sharing with you is really true and not a lie.  Do you respect Moses?  I know you do.

   

   It was the prophet and Law giver, Moses, who proclaimed, on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed – Deuteronomy 17:6One witness is not sufficient to establish or judge a matter or person by - Deuteronomy 19:15.  The Bible testifies to the accuracy of the prophets and the patriarchs with over 40 separate witnesses who all spoke and wrote to the same message about Isa (Jesus Christ), the Messiah, who would come to save mankind by suffering and dying for our sins! Further, their consistent corporate testimony was confirmed with God’s divine stamp of approval by signs, miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit, which irrevocably establishes that their witness was from God. 

 

The Qur’an has but one witness, a spirit identifying itself as “Jibrael” (“Gabriel”).  How is the contradictory witness of one spirit being put above the witness of over 40 verified God fearing testimonies of the great ancient prophets and patriarchs that all agreed and have God’s divine stamp of approval, even though this single testimony for one spirit (a jinn?) breaks the Law of God given through Moses??? 

Was Jibrael really a jinn?  Since he did not show us or leave any credentials, as to his true  identity, we are required to test the spirits.  For it is written: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” – 1 John 4:1.

Even the prophets in the books of Holy Scripture gave us a strong warning and guideline for protection, so that we would not to be deceived by the jinn, But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be (divinely) accursed” (Galatians 1:8) and “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).  These things were written long ago to protect those truly seeking God from the current and future false prophecies and teachings that God knew the devil would introduce to deceive mankind, long before a spirit calling itself “Jibrael” introduced a contrary message to humanity.

 

Also, we must be careful to remember some of Isa’s (Jesus Christ’s) final word’s to us: “all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone” (Revelation 21:8) and “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19).

I can tell you from my own witness that the prophets are true.  I once thought the scales of justice awaited me in heaven (instead of the books of my deeds that would judge and condemn me).  I was very uncertain which way the scales would tip, even though I was not a “bad” person, and the thought of watching them tip even slightly toward a decision that would send me to an eternal hell was very frightening thing to me. I knew I needed to have my sins forgiven, but I was not sure if they would be.  When I was 21 years old, I cried out to Jesus to forgive me and come into my life.  In that moment Jesus showed up, I did not see Him with my eyes, but His presence in the Spirit was overwhelming.  I immediately felt the shame of all my sin, it was great and unbearable, but instantly Jesus spoke to me an said, I love you and I forgive you.  I cannot express how overtaken I was with a complete feeling and full understanding that I had just been forgiven by the God of the universe. I wept tears of immense joy, as I not only felt the relief of my sin burden lifted off of me, but I knew His love was what I had always been searching for and I had now found.  My life was changed from that moment on, as I now knew that I had purpose and meaning for living, I was forgiven and free to be what God wanted me to be and I have never been the same since.  Jesus longs to show you His love and forgiveness too, if you will but acknowledge that He is your only hope and Savior, He will hear your cry.

May you truly be blessed to know God's love for you!  TJ

 

Even the Qur’an teaches that the Bible (Torah & Gospel) is to be respected as it gives “guidance and light” (Surah 5:42-46).  Further, the Qur’an teaches to “let the people of the Gospel judge by that which God hath revealed therein (within the Gospel).  Whoso judgeth not by that which God hath revealed (within the Gospel); such are evil-livers” (Surah 5:47).

 

Respect the prophets and be blessed!

CHOOSING A RELIABLE SOURCE

The very heart of the disagreement is found in this question - Is the Qur'an true or is the Bible true?  Above, several disagreements and contrary positions between the two sources have been pointed out. Islamic scholars have long known about this problem,  and so they, wishing to put the Qur'an in a place of supreme authority, had to say that the Bible was corrupted.

Yet, even the Qur'an speaks to the preeminence of the Bible's authority (as stated above in Surah 5).  Thus, Islamic scholars must say that the Bible was corrupted sometime after the time the Qur'an was "officially" authorized by Uthman.  Unfortunately, for those who have been taught that the Qur'an was unblemished and perfect from God to Muhammed to what we have today, Uthman (according to the Hadith) altered the Qur'an, about twenty years after the time of Muhammad's death -  (http://www.answering-islam.org/Green/uthman.htm).

The hadith also records seven different ways that the Qur'an could be recited prior to Uthman's final version of the Qur'an we now have (How the Qur'an was standardized). Therefore, we must ask which reciting was really correct (since some of Muhammad's followers were ready to kill each other over the differences in the recitings) and which one of the seven ways did Uthman choose for the final version we have today?  Further then, we are being asked to accept by blind faith that Uthman did not make any mistakes, even though in the Hadith Uthman confesses that he was uncertain of which way Muhammad intended it to be! (How the Qur'an was standardized).

   As mentioned previously, it was the prophet and Law giver, Moses, who proclaimed, “on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed” – Deuteronomy 17:6.  One witness is not sufficient to establish or judge a matter or person by - Deuteronomy 19:15.  The Bible testifies to the accuracy of the prophets and the patriarchs with over 40 separate witnesses who all spoke and wrote to the same message about Isa (Jesus Christ), the Messiah, who would come to save mankind by suffering and dying for our sins! 

   Further, their consistent corporate testimony was confirmed with God’s divine stamp of approval by signs, miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit, which irrevocably establishes that their witness was from God.  The Qur’an has but one conflicting witness, a single spirit identifying itself as “Gabriel”, with no miracles accompanying the reciter and the caliph that standardized the message.  How is the contradictory witness of one spirit being put above the witness of over 40 verified God fearing testimonies of the great ancient prophets and patriarchs that all agree and have God’s divine stamp of approval, even though this single testimony from a lone spirit (a jinn?) breaks the Law of God given through Moses??? 

   Even the prophets in the books of Holy Scripture gave us a strong warning not to be deceived by the jinn, “But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be (divinely) accursed(Galatians 1:8) and “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints(Jude 3).  These things were written long ago to protect those truly seeking God from the current and future false prophecies and teachings that God knew the devil would introduce to deceive mankind, long before a spirit calling itself “Gabriel” and introduced a contrary message to humanity.

   Both the Law and the Prophets unequivocally demonstrate that the spirit calling itself "Gabriel" was indeed a jinn (a demon) that came to deceive and enslave humanity in the bondage of its clever lies.  No doubt this truth will grieve many, but it will be better to suffer the grief and loss in this life than to suffer the loss of one's very own soul in Hell, forever.

 

   Also, we must be careful to remember some of Isa’s (Jesus Christ’s) final word’s to us: “all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone” (Revelation 21:8) and “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19).


For me, the Law, the historical accuracy of the biblical text (being repeatedly proved reliable over the years with things like the Dead Sea Scrolls) and the supernatural witness from the Holy Spirit (who dwells within me) telling me that I am a child of God, utterly out weigh the witness of one, lone spirit, even if its testimony had never been altered.

Watch Out for Satan’s tricky Dajjal (Antichrist)!

 

Watch Out for Satan’s tricky Dajjal (The Antichrist)!  He is coming much sooner than you think!  How?  Even though you may have been taught a different arrangement, the truth is al-Dajjal will actually deceive the world by falsely presenting/disguising himself as the Imam Mahdi (the 12th Imam who is to bring seven years of “peace” and “justice”).  Also, al-Dajjal will present himself as the Messiah to the Jews and Christians, the Great Avatar to the Eastern Mystic religions, etc.  At first, few will be able to see through his disguise and trickery, for he will mimic Imam Mahdi extremely well (for he is said to be the one who is to bring justice and peace for seven years)! Most will not see through his deception until half way into the seven years, when he will be exposed by his very distinct characteristics.  However, we can know who he is before that point in time by heeding the prophets' warnings (more on this in a moment).

 

Al-Dajjal (the Antichrist) will receive a fatal head wound by a sword during a battle that rages over the destruction of Israel between the 3rd and 4th year of his 7-yr. peace covenant (maybe from a brave Islamic warrior who meant well, but forgot that only Isa {Jesus} can truly kill him).  So, Satan is allowed to bring al-Dajjal back from certain death and heal his fatal wound.

 

Perhaps, this is when many people will awaken from his powerful spell of deception; for he is to be "misshapen”, likely from this attack, and his right eye is said to go "black" without sight, according to an Islamic prophecy, which could happen from the sword wound to the head near the midpoint of the seven years, which the biblical prophecy tells us about in Revelation chapter 13. 

 

Nevertheless, al-Dajjal and his false prophet will still do great miracles in an effort to attempt to deceive the weak-minded.  Moreover, the very man that he is predicted to put on God's throne is none other than himself, in the form of his own image (an idol), which the false prophet will miraculously breathe life into, as al-Dajjal blasphemes and declares himself to be God! 

 

It is at this point is where all the world will be tested by being forced to bow down to al-Dajjal, take his mark on their right hand or forehead and worship him and Satan together as the true “God”, or be killed (Revelation chapter 13).  This is explained more specifically below.

 

The Details (what to know before he shows):


Let it be understood.  Many have heard of the coming Dajjal/Antichrist, but most people know very little about him.  Yet, the prophets have described him in great detail.  In this article al-Dajjal will be fully exposed, so that the reader will clearly know how to identify him and avoid his evil plan of deception and destruction that he intends for the souls of many. 

 

It is important to remember that al-Dajjal's initial great deception is to convince everyone that he is really the coming Imam Mahdi, or the Messiah, or the final Avatar, etc.  He will succeed in doing this with many, because Muslims only expect him to show up some mysterious time after Imam Mahdi has arrived and many Christians and Jews mistakenly think their Messiah will appear at this time too.  No one is thinking that the Antichrist will pull this dirty trick and show up first, posing as Imam Mahdi or Messiah!  The Eastern mystical religious believers are simply looking for a great and powerful leader who will unite the world under his authority in the name of peace and harmony, so they will easily fall for the Antichrist’s grand deception.

 

Al-Dajjal (the Antichrist) plans to wait until the circumstances for the Imam Mahdi's (or the Messiah’s) arrival are expected, or present on the earth (military and financial chaos)!  Thus, most everyone will be anticipating or hoping for the Messiah or the Imam Mahdi to appear.  Then, he will come out, disguised as Imam Mahdi/Messiah/Avatar and very likely be proclaimed to actually be "the 12th Imam Mahdi", and the “true Messiah”, with the help of several others throughout the world (his paid agents and others who are simply deceived and jump on the euphoric band wagon).

 

The ancient prophecies in the book of Daniel really give us a good foundation for understanding much about the soon coming Dajjal/Antichrist.  Daniel tells us where he will come from, how he will rule and what type of ruler he will be.  But, far more importantly, the unmistakable way in which an informed person will absolutely be able to identify al-Dajjal (the Antichrist) quickly, when he emerges on the world’s scene to take his place. Other prophecies fill in the details for us also.  Therefore, they will be shared here as well.

  1. Al-Dajjal/ theAntichrist will be the 11th ruler who will emerge after 10 global rulers are established within the next few years.  The current division of multiple Nation States will be converged into a global New World Order containing 10 global regions, with one leader over each (the book of Daniel chapters 2 & 7).  This will come about through a great betrayal by the elite European banking families (The Rothschild Banking Cartel), who are deliberately going to collapse the Euro and then the U.S. Dollar in 2012 (through the planned disintegration of the petro-dollar agreement).  The orchestrated financial collapse will serve to impoverish the people in the Western nations, and most particularly in the U.S.A., and additionally cause great anger from all those holding Federal Reserve notes, U.S. Government Bonds and T-bills, (the phony, fiat paper money created and utilized by these same Rothschild bankers to create debt, in order to control the world through their central banking systems). The primary targets of betrayal are the average middle class citizens (reducing them to the level of serfs) along with the outright theft of a great deal of the past payments for goods and services from the oil rich Muslim countries, and the manufacturing countries of China and Japan, along with others.  The elites' lap dogs in the mainstream media will help stir up even more anger and point to all the wrong places to place blame, in order to distract from those who really caused the crisis, further dividing the victims of this treachery against each other. After the financial crash, even more war will be deliberately sparked by the political minions and covert henchmen (CIA and MI6) of the Rothschild Cartel, first in the Middle East (which they are currently engaged in doing, as their plan is to topple several Middle Eastern rulers and replace them with their more willing puppets, i.e. Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Jordan, Syria, Oman and lastly Saudi Arabia) and then further initiate wars in other flash points around the world.  This will produce the perfect circumstances of severe crisis and chaos necessary for the cartel to produce their Dajjal/Antichrist, presenting him as the Imam Mahdi/Messiah, or the great world’s savior, when it began to appear that the world would be destroyed.

 

  1. Here is where Al-Dajjal/The Antichrist will then forge a 7 year peace pact that will seem to bring the world back from the brink of destruction.  This will make him appear as a hero/savior to the oppressed and fearful of the world.  This is how he will disguise himself as Imam Mahdi to Islam and Messiah to the Jews and Christians - Daniel 9:24-27, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 & Revelation 6:1-2.  However, one clarification is needed here, as the type of “Christian” who falls for this deception is actually a Christian in name only (CINO), which unfortunately is the vast majority of those inside Christendom today.  The true followers of Jesus Christ are a serious minority today inside “the Christian world” today, and as a result most people don’t even know what a true Christian looks like, because they see all the pretenders and phonies.  (For insight to what a true Christian looks like click on this link: http://www.truthandlife.us/Questioning_Salvation_.html). Also, we will see the vast majority of all religious groups (who will be deceived by al-Dajjal/the Antichrist) forming a globally united religion, which the Antichrist and his new empire will be very supportive of at first, but destroy later, half way into the seven year period – Revelation 14:8 and chapters 17 & 18).
    1. [Once the peace of al-Dajjal/ the Antichrist is in place, accomplished by the contrived global crisis that his minion, power brokers effected (i.e. the Federal Reserve and the other central banking systems, CIA, MI6, and various politicians, corporations and organizations around the world working behind the scenes), the world will readily accept the transfer of power toward his New World Order, for al-Dajjal’s promise of peace and stability.  His peace agreement will primarily be a Middle East peace accord, involving Israel and many of the Muslim States (and possibly some others), as it will strategically not include the whole world where the destruction of war is desired by the Antichrist - Daniel 9:27.]
    2. [Al-Dajjal’s New World Order will ultimately become increasingly evil, crushing and oppressing the entire earth in tyrannical fashion, which is another huge clue that he is not Imam Mahdi/Messiah, because Imam Mahdi/Messiah is to bring real peace and justice to the world, not just merely say the words and then do the opposite. (Daniel 7:8-24 & 8:23-25)]
  1. Al-Dajjal/the Antichrist will come from Western Europe (Daniel chapters 2 & 7)   I anticipate that al-Dajjal will be selected from one of the ruling elite European banking families (which are mostly Jewish by the way and not from the line of Muhammad, as the Mahdi has been tied to, through Islamic tradition).  The fake Mahdi will more likely carry a name like “Rothschild”, instead of any name connected to Islam or any of the other religions.  However, the name of al-Dajjal is only a well-educated guess at this point, not an absolute certainty and he could easily rename himself to add to his deception.   
  1. Al-Dajjal/the Antichrist will utilize globally respected/feared military power, along with his control over vast resources and wealth to manipulate the world to his ends. (Daniel 11:36-39)  This is one other reason to look for al-Dajjal/the Antichrist will be a selection from one of the elite banking European families, because they will not likely wish to share their global power with an outsider. Additionally, they have the power and wealth to do most anything they wish, including using the U.S. and N.A.T.O. military (along with the CIA and MI6) to attack any country in the world they wish to control, while raping it of resources.
  1. Al-Dajjal/the Antichrist will start out politically small on the world’s stage, at the beginning of the seven years. Then, he will grow into full power after the first 3 1/2 years, even surpassing the 10 other rulers that initially preceded him.  Halfway into the seven years of his deception by peace, al-Dajjal will uproot three of the ten leaders and then he will move to become the absolute dictator of the world. Thus, it is important to realize that it is a 3 ½ year process through which he will come to full power (Daniel 7:8, 20, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 and Revelation 17:11-13)!
  1. It will be right at the midpoint of the seven year peace covenant that al-Dajjal/the Antichrist will aggressively move to rule the entire world all by himself. (Daniel 9:27)
    1. Halfway into the seven years, al-Dajjal will betray his own peace agreement and move against Israel to destroy the Jews, which will thoroughly confuse many initially, before they realize what he is really up to.
    2. Al-Dajjal will have his military nuke the headquarters of the new global religion, overthrowing the great harlot (the one world false religious system) in one hour by destroying her with fire.  But then, in his treachery, he will blame three of the ten world leaders (his political puppets) that helped give him his power, making these three the scapegoats for the harlot’s destruction, as most of the religious people in the world will have loved the harlot dearly. (Revelation chapters 17 & 18)
  1. Then, Al-Dajjal/the Antichrist will cause all the earth to worship Lucifer (Satan) and himself, or be killed. (Revelation chapter 13)
    1. The mark of the beast (the number {666} or the name of al-Dajjal’s) will be his mark, taken on the right hand or forehead, or rejected, to determine everyone’s loyalty to him.  This will be the time that many people around the world figure out who al-Dajjal really is and reject his mark.  However, he will do many great miracles and a great delusion fall upon many to believe what is false, so great caution must be exercised here for anyone who thinks this would be too easy to see through! (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 & Revelation 13)
  1. Once Dajjal/Antichrist has entered the temple and issued the mark, he will speak out against God Almighty and blaspheme – declaring himself as being God, kill the saints of God, seek to change the way humanity views time and change the laws to entirely suit his self interests and goals.  Great power will be given to him for the final 3 ½ years of his seven year period, which began with his “peace” covenant and will end with the slaughter of almost all of humanity. 
  1. However, there is one other significant twist in the deceptive rule of al-Dajjal. A great battle is to take place just before the midpoint of the seven years, which will solidify al-Dajjal’s power to rule the world.  Actually, it will be a Russian and Islamic alliance that will come against him while he is in Israel (Daniel 11:40 and Ezekiel 38).  From what we can gather from Isa’s (Jesus’) prophecies recorded in Matthew 24, it appears the al-Dajjal goes to Israel and moves into the temple to declare he is God.  As he is doing this he breaks his own peace covenant, unleashing his military forces to wipe out the nation of Israel. Apparently,  in the proceeding chaos, with his military vulnerable, it becomes a peak opportunity that is too much to resist for the Russian and the Islamic armies that are allied together and poised for an attack.  Perhaps al-Dajjal’s deceptive mask has slipped down a bit too far by this time as well.  But, whatever the reason, they forget that they cannot defeat al-Dajjal and they move against him to take out two birds with one stone’s thrown, or so they think.
  1. The alliance overruns the land and appears to be on the very brink of an outright victory, as al-Dajjal is dealt a fatal blow to his head with a sword and his army is overwhelmed (Revelation 13 & Ezekiel 38)
    1. But then God intervenes and destroys all of the attacking armies in His fierce wrath, because He is against them.  The complete and swift devastation of the armies clearly comes by supernatural means, causing the whole world to be in awe of God (Ezekiel 38:14-23).
    2. But then, al-Dajjal’s/the Antichrist’s fatal wound is healed (by Satan) and Satan possesses him.  Then, al-Dajjal claims credit for the total annihilation of the Russian and Islamic armies that had entered into the land against him to take it, armies which God actually destroyed (Daniel 8:24, Revelation chapter 13 & 2 Thessalonians chapter 2). 

 

  1. After this al-Dajjal will rule and pillage the world mostly as he pleases until he ultimately ends up in the final battle of Armageddon (Daniel 11:41-45), where he will be defeated by the real Jesus Christ when He returns (Daniel 2:34-35, 7:26, 8:25 and Revelation 19:11-21).
  1. It is at the end of the seven years that Jesus Christ will return and defeat al-Dajjal/the Antichrist and his false prophet, casting them both directly into hell (Revelation 19:19-20).  After this, peace and harmony are brought to the earth for a time, and then the final judgment at the Great White Throne will take place.
    1. "Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:1-15)
    2. Do you trust in your deeds? Is your name written in the book of life? Actually, the answer to these two questions is far more important than everything else you have just read!
This likely does not end how you thought, because where is the Imam Mahdi, you may ask?  The truth is that there will be no real Imam Mahdi.  He is pure legend that was created out of vague tradition and religious folklore, not prophetic utterance from any source like the Qur’an or the Bible.  Al-Dajjal will use this strong superstitious belief (as well as other misinformation) to his full advantage, to disguise himself and pretend to be the Mahdi/Messiah, tricking many.  Yet, of the billions he will fool, you now do not have to be taken in by his clever, devious scheme.  For the solid testimony of the prophets tells us who he will be without questionPlease, pass this on to everyone you know and care about, so that they will not fall for al-Dajjal’s/the Antichrist’s soon coming and diabolical deception.

  

May God bless you, TJ.

13. Jesus is God's Word and God Himself. (John 1:1, 14)

13. Muhammad was only a warner. (Qur'an 29:49)

Mohammed's Mission was to conquer the world for Allah; Christ's mission was to conquer sin's penalty and power to condemn our souls in hell for eternity, by substitutionary atonement of His blood sacrifice for us (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18).

Mohammed considered Christ a good prophet; but Christ pronounced Himself to be God Almighty, (John 5:18, 8:24, 8:51-59, 10:30-31, 11:25, 14:9 and Revelation 1).

Islam must be received, or you can be killed for rejecting it.  But, the faith offered by Jesus Christ is for "whosoever will" to receive, and all men are permitted to reject it. (Revelation 22:17 & John 3:16).

Mohammed's disciples killed for the faith; Christ's disciples were killed for their faith (Acts 12:2; 2 Timothy 4:7).

Mohammed promoted persecution against the "infidels"; Christ forgave and converted His chief persecutor (1 Timothy 1:13-15).

Mohammed and his fellow warriors murdered thousands; Christ and his true disciples murdered none but saved many (compare John 12:48 and Acts).

Mohammed's method was COMPULSION by the threat of death; Christ's aim was voluntary CONVERSION by love to give life (Acts 3:19; John 6:47; 11:25-26).

Mohammed practiced FORCE; Christ preached FAITH (John 6:28-29, 35).

Mohammed was a WARRIOR; Christ is a DELIVERER (Col. 1:13; 1 Thessalonians 1:10).

Mohammed was swift to shed blood (Romans 3:15-17); Christ shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Ephesians 1:7).

Mohammed preached "Death to the infidels!"; Christ, while on the cross prayed "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34).

Modern day disciples of Mohammed respond to the terrorist attacks by cheering in the streets; Modern day disciples of Christ are deeply grieved at past atrocities carried out by those who were "Christians" in name only (the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).

Many Muslims are peaceful and peace-loving because they do not strictly follow the teachings of their founder; Many Christians are peaceful and peace-loving because they do strictly follow the teachings of their Founder (Romans 12:17-21).

Mohammed said the Koran is authoritative only in Arabic, and only in his dialect; the Bible is authoritative in many languages around the world, for God knows all things and can inspire (and preserve) His Word in more than one language.

Mohammed hated music; Jesus and His disciples sang hymns, and the Apostle commanded the Lord's Church to sing. (Matthew 26:30, Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16).

Mohammed called upon his servants to fight; Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world; if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight . . . but now is My kingdom not from hence" (John 18:36).

The Koran says, "Fight in the cause of Allah" (Qu'ran 2.244); The Bible says, "we wrestle not against flesh and blood" and "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal" (Ephesians 6:12; 2 Corinthians 10:4).

The Koran says, "Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them" (Qu'ran 9.5); Christ said, "Preach the gospel (good news of salvation) to every creature" (Mark 16:15).

A Muslim is often submitted to Allah because he fears physical retribution and death from other Muslims. Yet, The true Bible believing Christian is loyal to Jesus Christ purely out of love. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (John 4:19) We love him, because he first loved us.

Jesus will forgive and love any Muslim, no matter what they have done, if they will simply yield their life over to Him, by accepting His true sacrifice that He made for them by dying on the cross in their place, so that their sins could be paid for, cleansed and eternally removed from their soul.  Jesus is waiting with open arms for you, just ask Him to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior, and He will forgive you and set you free (John 14:6 & John 8:32).

 Something Every Sincere Mormon Should Know, But They Don't.  And Most Never Will, Until It Is Too Late!


Have you heard about the place Jesus Christ said we will all end up going to one day?


The LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book - Exodus 32:33

 

11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.

 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.

14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire This is the second death, the lake of fire.

 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. [The final judgment at the Throne of God - Revelation 20:11-15 (The Holy Bible)].


Jesus Christ also said, "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I AM, you will die in your sins. - John 8:24 & "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." - John 3:36 & “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it – Matthew &:13-14.

 

Did you notice that everyone at the final judgment who was trusting in their deeds, which are listed books of the deeds (all the deeds we committed, good and bad combined) ended up in hell?  If you want to know how your name can be written in the book of life, then go to the bottom of this page and read about it.

 

There is only ONE TRUE GOD for the entire universe!

 

"You are My witnesses," declares the LORD,  

"And My servant whom I have chosen,
So that you may know and believe Me
And understand that I am He

Before Me there was no God formed,
And there will be none formed after Me
.
   
(Isaiah 43:10)

 

Was the Bible mistranslated here in Isaiah?

 

Proof dispelling such an idea comes within the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls from 1947 – 1956 in eleven caves along the northwest shore of the Dead Sea.  The Dead Sea Scrolls have been accurately dated back to 250 – 400 B.C., and when they were compared to modern copies of Scripture that dated back to 800 A.D., they proved that the current copies of the Scriptures had not been changed in their meaning at all!  Thus, when the Mormon scriptures and books contradict the Bible on this point, it must be considered in error, because the Bible’s accuracy has been verified, pre-dating them all.

 

And even so, the Bible declared long before the Mormon books were written, But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be (divinely) accursed” (Galatians 1:8) and “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).  These things were written back in the 1st century to protect those truly seeking God from the current and future false prophecy and teaching that God knew Lucifer would use to deceive mankind.

 

Just like Lucifer did in the garden with Eve, when he lied and said, “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be as God” – Genesis 3:5.  You and many of those you love have been lied to.  Realize it and rescue all you can!

 

The blood of Jesus is the only thing that can cleanse our sin stained souls, it cannot happen through religious good works, like that of which Cain displease God (Genesis 4).

And be careful to remember some of Jesus Christ’s final word’s to us: all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone” (Revelation 21:8) and “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19).

 Something Every Sincere Jehovah’s Witness Should Know


What is the final authority, the Bible or the Watchtower? The Bible, right?

You have been told by the Watchtower that your good deeds will give you favor with God. However, the Bible says that all who believe this and live it will be thrown into hell.


The LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book - Exodus 32:33

 
Revelation 20:11-15 


The Final Judgment before the white throne


 11 And I saw a great white throne and him who sat on him, fled from his presence earth and heaven, and there was no place for them.
12
And I saw the dead, large and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them and they were judged, each according to his works.
14
Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the Lake of Fire.
15 And that is not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.


Note here in this passage about the Last Judgment of all mankind that ALL the facts (both good and bad) are judged and cast into hell. Only the names in the book of life are not cast into hell.  Is your name in the book of life?


Revelation 14:1-4 (The one hundred and forty-four thousand)

 
 
 1Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads.

 2And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps.

 3And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth.

 4These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste (male & virgins). These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb.

 

Revelation 7:4

4And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:(Jewish).  The Watchtower’s interpretation of the 144,000 directly contradicts the plain context of Holy Scripture here and Revelation 20:11-15 confirms the incorrect Watchtower interpretation.


Exodus 32:33

The LORD said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book 


Ephesians 2:8-9

8
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

9not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.



John 6:28-29

28
Therefore they said to Him, "What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?"

 29Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."


Is Jesus Jehovah God?


Genesis 1:26-27

26
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

 27God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  (God is in a plural form here.)

 

Isaiah 44:6

6"Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts:
'I am the first and I am the last,
         And there is no God besides Me.
  (Who is this?)

 

Revelation 1:5-8, 17-18

5and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood--

 6and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father-- to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

 7BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.

 8"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."

17When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man And He placed His right hand on me, saying, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last,

 18and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.  (Who is this?)


John 10:30-33

30
Jesus said, "I and the Father are one."

 31The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him.

 32Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?"

 33The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."

(The Jews understood Jesus’ claim to be Jehovah God, that’s why they accused Him of blasphemy and wanted to stone Him to death!)

Luke 5:17-26

  17One day He was teaching; and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present for Him to perform healing.

 18And some men were carrying on a bed a man who was paralyzed; and they were trying to bring him in and to set him down in front of Him.

 19But not finding any way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down through the tiles with his stretcher, into the middle of the crowd, in front of Jesus.

 20Seeing their faith, He said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven you."

 21The scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this man who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"

 22But Jesus, aware of their reasonings, answered and said to them, "Why are you reasoning in your hearts?

 23"Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins have been forgiven you,' or to say, 'Get up and walk'?

 24"But, so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,"--He said to the paralytic--"I say to you, get up, and pick up your stretcher and go home."

 25Immediately he got up before them, and picked up what he had been lying on, and went home glorifying God.

 26They were all struck with astonishment and began glorifying God; and they were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen remarkable things today."

(Consider the fact that Jews, whom Jesus was speaking to directly in these passages, had absolutely no problem understanding His claim to be God!)

Hebrews 1:1-8

  5For to which of the angels did He ever say,
         "YOU ARE MY SON,
         TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU"?
8But of the Son He says,
"YOUR THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER,


The Bible also says that the Holy Spirit is God


Acts 5:3-4
 3But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land?

 4"While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God."

 


Romans 8:16
16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,

1 John 5:10-13
10
The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son.

 11And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

 12He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

 13These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.

Does the Holy Spirit witness to your spirit that you are a child of God? Do you know that you really have eternal life with God for sure and your name is in the book of life, because the Spirit of God confirmed it to you?  You do not have this security, because mere men (the Watchtower Society) cannot give it to you.


The certainty of salvation is only for those who recognize that Jesus is God and repent of their sins before Him and give Him their life - knowing that Jesus is truly God and His blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins is the only hope to get life eternal with God and inherit the earth. All others, waiting in his deeds should be thrown into the lake of fire (hell).


You will know a prophet by his fruit


A List Of The Well Documented History

Of The False Predictions From The Watchtower


1897 "Our Lord, the appointed King, is now present, since October 1874," Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 4, page 621.

1899 "...the ‘battle of the great day of God Almighty' (Revelation 16:14), which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth's present rulership, is already commenced." The Time Is at Hand, page 101 (1908 edition).


1916 "The Bible chronology herein presented shows that the six great 1000 year days beginning with Adam are ended, and that the great 7th Day, the 1000 years of Christ's Reign, began in 1873." The Time Is at Hand, page ii, (forward).


1918 "Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection." Millions Now Living Will Never Die, page 89.


1922 "The date 1925 is even more distinctly indicated by the Scriptures than 1914." The Watchtower 9/1/22, page 262.


1923 "Our thought is, that 1925 is definitely settled by the Scriptures. As to Noah, the Christian now has much more upon which to base his faith than Noah had upon which to base his faith in a coming deluge." The Watchtower, page 106 4/1/23.


1925 "The year 1925 is here. With great expectation Christians have looked forward to this year. Many have confidently expected that all members of the body of Christ will be changed to heavenly glory during this year. This may be accomplished. It may not be. In his own due time God will accomplish his purposes concerning his people. Christians should not be so deeply concerned about what may transpire this year." The Watchtower, 1/1/25, page. 3.


1925 "It is to be expected that Satan will try to inject into the minds of the consecrated, the thought that 1925 should see an end to the work." The Watchtower, Sept, 1925 page 262.


1926 "Some anticipated that the work would end in 1925, but the Lord did not state so. The difficulty was that the friends inflated their imaginations beyond reason; and that when their imaginations burst asunder, they were inclined to throw away everything." The Watchtower, page 232.


1931 "There was a measure of disappointment on the part of Jehovah's faithful ones on earth concerning the years 1917, 1918, and 1925, which disappointment lasted for a time...and they also learned to quit fixing dates." Vindication, page 338.


1941 "Receiving the gift, the marching children clasped it to them, not a toy or plaything for idle pleasure, but the Lord's provided instrument for most effective work in the remaining months before Armageddon." The Watchtower, 9/15/41, page 288.


1968 "True, there have been those in times past who predicted an ‘end to the world', even announcing a specific date. Yet nothing happened. The ‘end' did not come. They were guilty of false prophesying. Why? What was missing?.. Missing from such people were God's truths and evidence that he was using and guiding them." Awake, 10/8/68.


1968 "Why are you looking forward to 1975?" The Watchtower, 8/15/68, page 494.

Article after article appeared from the Watchtower Society that raised the anticipation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses toward the 1975 date.  Among them was this dogmatic statement found in the 1969 Watchtower article entitled, “The Approaching Peace of a Thousand Years:”

“…six millenniums of mankind’s life on earth would end in the mid-seventies. Thus the seventh millennium from man’s creation by Jehovah God would begin within less than ten years…. In order for the Lord Jesus Christ to be ‘Lord even of the sabbath day,’ his thousand-year reign would have to be the seventh in a series of thousand-year periods or millenniums. Would not, then, the end of six millenniums of mankind’s laborious enslavement under Satan the Devil be the fitting time for Jehovah God to usher in a Sabbath millennium for all his human creatures? Yes, indeed! And his King Jesus Christ will be Lord of that Sabbath.” —The Watchtower, October 15, 1969, pp. 622-623

One might wish to say that the organization is still learning. If that is so, then how can they trust what they are taught now by the Watchtower? Will what they are being taught now, change also???  If a false prophet in the Old Testament days had tried to use to “still learning” excuse he would have been stoned to death anyway.  Liars always have a bag full of excuses and clever comebacks for their obvious deception, because it is the only way they can keep up the charade. 


A true prophet of God won't err in prophesying. Only a false prophet does. The Jehovah's Witness organization, that claims to be a prophet of God, is really a false prophet. Again, Jesus warned us about such false prophets that would precede His coming.  Do not continue to foolishly listen to them any further, lest they condemn your soul!

 

If the Watchtower can’t be trusted then what is the truth?

 

Ephesians 2:1-9 tells us, “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.  Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.  But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.  For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast.  Notice the past tense of salvation here, when we truly have it by grace.

 

Cry out to the resurrected Jesus Christ and ask Him to show you that He is true and He is GOD.  Be real with Jesus and He will be real with you!

 

And be careful to remember some of Jesus Christ’s final word’s to us: all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone” (Revelation 21:8) and “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19).  Read the articles below to find the truth from God's word.

A SWORD OF TRUTH
- striking down the lying serpent that has itself wrapped around the world.


The Death Of Atheism - A clear explanation for why real science and good evidence leave no room for Darwin's absurd mythology.

The main pillars of Darwinian (naturalistic) Evolution are exposed as scientifically implausible.  Some of the topics covered in this book are as follows:  Exposing atheism’s bankrupt religious philosophy, revealing atheism’s revised history, separating Atheism's religion
and pseudo-science from true science, accurately defining evolution, demonstrating the theory’s catch-22s that make it completely untenable, exposing the true the fossil record which utterly refutes the evolution of species, the fable of genetic evolutionary miracles, unmasking the myths about the miraculous upward mutation of species, the unscientific cheating that goes on within the selective dating methods used by secular "scientists" and much, much more!  This book was written for the common person to understand the scientific issues involved, benefit from that knowledge and then be able to use in a practical way to help others.  The book speaks to the foundational scientific laws and principals that completely refute all of the high sounding rhetoric used by the naturalists, for their smoke and mirrors arguments.  From teen, to college level, to adult, this book sounds the death knell for the lies of the atheistic religion of naturalistic evolution, putting Darwin's fairytale to rest once and for all.

Salvation: An in depth discussion concerning biblical salvation.

 

Centuries of debate have surrounded this topic and most people have no idea just how profound or even how controversial the subject actually is.  For those who believe in salvation this is a fantastic study worthy of consideration, because true salvation is not something any believer would want to misunderstand, and then end up separated from God without any hope for eternity.  Are we saved by grace or works, or both?  For those of us who believe they have been granted God’s grace, HOW DO WE REALLY KNOW WE HAVE SALVATION (SAVING GRACE) FOR CERTAIN (SEE MATTHEW 7:21-23 & 25:1-12), and that Jesus will not say to us that He does not know us, even though we call Him Lord?  Is salvation permanent or can it be lost?  Is salvation God’s sovereign decision or our free will choice?  You may be surprised to find out that many verses in the Bible appear to support each side of these contrary issues, but there is only one way to truly reconcile them together and come to a conclusion that is rationally inclusive.
