(Philosophy: Theology) Do Demons Really Exist?

(Philosophy: Theology) Do Demons Really Exist?

 

Demons, this is a nasty subject matter that I am writing to you about this evening but it is not a very long letter so I hope that you will stay with me for the few moments it will take to read through it. What is the first thing that you think of when you hear this word? My first thought is, evil, my second though is, dangerous. Most faiths (religions) that I have ever studied do believe in their existence but there are some who do not. Yet more religions that are under the ‘Christian Flag’ seem to believe that there is no such thing as a Demonic possession or even that there are such things as Angels or Demons. Hopefully you are of the knowledge and understanding that they are very real. I thank the Lord that there is a Spiritual world for without it there would be no Protector (the Holy Spirit) as well as no Angels of God or even us. For without our Creator, none of us would have ever existed. Unfortunately there are tens of thousands of ‘fallen Angels’ who followed Satan in His rebellion against God who are now on this planet with us humans. For them, Earth is the in between spot. They were in Heaven, they are here now and they have already been judged and condemned and are in route to Hell’s fire after the completion of Armageddon, and they all know this. So the reality is, they hate our guts, the very thought of us puny little humans getting to live in Paradise while they are condemned to the flames of Hell. For us humans the great side of this is that as long as we accept, follow and worship Jesus Christ, He gives to us of His Spirit, the Holy Spirit and if we are possessed by God’s Spirit then Satan or His Angels cannot take away our prize which is being with God for all eternity.

 

There is a bad side to all this Spiritual world though, if we reject Christ then we humans leave ourselves open to evil to move into our person, or house, tabernacle. You see, all humans are like a house in a sense, this is where we all live, within our selves, but we have an unlocked door that a Spirit can open and come into. If we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior then He has given to us of His Holy Spirit and no other Spirit can ever enter in as long as He is there. You see if Christ resides with us a Demon nor the Devil Himself is able to come in. For at the very presence of God the Demons tremble and quake. I am going to give you 10 Bible verses that I hope you will check out concerning this subject matter, they are as follows.

1.) Luke 10: 17-18—Demons are evil

2.) Luke 8: 29—They are powerful

3.) Mark 5: 8-9—They are numerous

4.) Matthew 10: 1—They are unclean

5.) Matthew 12: 24-30—They are under Satan

6.) Mark 1: 23-24—They have the ability to recognize Jesus Christ

7.) Matthew 8: 28-29—They have the ability to possess humans

8.) Acts 19: 13-16—They have the ability to overcome men

9.) Matthew 8: 29-33—Demonic possession of humans

10.) 1 Timothy 4: 1-4—Demons have the ability to deceive humans and to distort God’s Doctrine. This is so that they can deceive the world, including Christians. You see, they know the Scriptures better than any human who reads with a human non-spiritual mindset. This is one of the reasons that we are directed to study the Scriptures daily so that we will be able to recognize false teachers when we hear/see them. This is the best way to keep ourselves and our families safe from the powers of evil. But, if we humans do not love and trust God with all our heart, mind and Soul we open ourselves to the worlds temptations. We must walk our lives in the love, peace, faith and the power of the Lord and His Spirit to truly be safe. How we choose to live our own personal life does effect many of those around us. If we are evil we tend to treat people very badly, even our own families, spouses, children, grandchildren and our parents. If we are a person who is owned and possessed by the Spirit of God, those around us will notice, and we do make a difference on peoples lives whichever path we choose to follow.

 

The Demons have already been judged, they know that their destiny is Hell. Now they are after each of us and everyone that we love. Our only shield, our only hope is putting on the Armor of Christ for this is the only shield that the Demons nor the Devil Himself cannot penetrate. Friends, there is a fire burning in every neighborhood, including our own, at what point in time will we ever pay attention to it? If you saw a fire burning on your street would you sound an alarm? Would we go ourselves and try to help save those whose house is burning or, would we just turn the T.V. up louder so that we wouldn’t have to hear the screams? What is it going to take to get the people as a human race to wake up and to care? What if the fire is in the house next door to us, or even our own home, our own family, are we really ever going to care? Or, do we only care if we see our own personal room on fire, or, when we feel the heat burning our own skin, when will we wake up and recognize reality? When evil is personally slapping us around and setting us on fire, is it too late? If we have spent our life time turning our back on the only one who can save us, who else can save us? The answer is simply no one else can and no one else will. If you believe that the Bible is the Holy Spirit inspired Word Of God you will realize that there is but one Savior and that is Jesus Christ.

 

God tells us all that the Devil is the father of all liars. So, think about our Leaders, are they liars? Who do you think is their God, who do you think rules them? It most certainly is not God! Friends, the greatest trick that the Devil has pulled on mankind is in convincing humans that He doesn’t exist. We are directed to use our God given talents to help others, this is not just concerning physical charity like giving food and clothing to the needy but we are suppose to help bring others to the Light that is God also. Folks, the Lord tells us that we as Christians (followers of Christ) must produce, Spiritually speaking. Now I have one last question for each of us, how close is the fire? Can we feel the heat, the evil around us? Do we have the Spiritual insight to see it, to understand it?

Blasphemy: What Is It And Is It Something That Actually Matters

Blasphemy: What Is It And Is It Something That Actually Matters

 

When I write these letters to you I always try my best to only give you factual information. I know that this website is quite eclectic in its material as I post things that are of interest to me figuring that at least some of you will have some interest in the things that I write and that I forward from other folks blogs. Today I have chosen to write to you concerning the word Blasphemy. When I write to you I pull information from my own life’s experiences, history books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, or directly from Scriptures. I checked Mr. Webster’s dictionary about the word Blasphemy and it gave the definitions of to talk profanity, to speak irreverently of. In the index of my King James Bible it says Blasphemy is: cursing God, arises out of pride, hatred, affliction, injustice and defiance. I believe that most of us can get a pretty good understanding of the word from these definitions. Are you aware that during the earliest days of the Nation of Israel that if a person even heard someone curse that they then became “unclean.’ Wow, how things have changed from the culture then to what it is now.

 

A person who is of this world today may look at how things are in society and go, so, whats wrong with it. But, not all people who are not of the Spirit (God’s Holy Spirit) are as blind as that.  Just as it is so that a person will not quit smoking or drinking or quit taking illegal drugs until the person actually really wants to quit down deep inside themselves. As it is also true that until each one of us deep inside ourselves decides to let go of this world and cling to and totally trust in our Creator all day, every day that we will not totally understand true peace. This is when we truly put our Creator first. God will call His own and His own will hear and know His voice this is because His Holy Spirit is within His own, so yes, He knows His own voice.

 

The opposite of the Light is darkness. If our bodies are the Tabernacle (dwelling place) of the Holy Spirit would we of our own choice blaspheme our own Creator? When we see and or hear a person swear as though they were proud of their words are we truly saddened or at least hurt just a little bit inside ourselves? When we hear the Lord’s name used in cursing does it hurt us, does it anger us at least a little?

 

Blasphemy comes from pride, hatred, affliction, injustice and defiance and these are all creations of this world, of the flesh. Honestly, do we see these traits to be within the domain of God? Do we see the reality here, or, is this just a parable to us? When that final trumpet sounds at our grave site and the last note of taps floats away on the breeze what condition will each of our Souls be in? Everyone of us have flaws in our bodies and in our actions! Remember, the Spirit is willing but the body (the flesh) is weak.

 

There are many sins that do not fall under the definition of blasphemy, things like murder, rape, false imprisonment, torture as is true of many other horrible human actions like bearing false witness and lying. In our own mind, do we consider any of these to be the “ways of God”? Everyone is a Light, a person of God is suppose to be a bright Light to God and an evil person is a dark light which leads to evil and Hell. Our friends, neighbors, family and co-workers see our light whether it is dark or light and even if only within themselves they judge us by our actions. Is it any less obvious that our Creator watches us and listens to us? What is it that He sees when he looks at you or me? What will He have to say to us about how we lived our life when we are bowed at His feet and it’s our turn at the Judgement Seat Of Christ?

 

Just think what kind of a world it would be without things like pride, hatred, injustice or any type of Blasphemy. On the day the Lord takes His Seat upon the Throne of David in the New Jerusalem all of these worldly faults will be in the world no longer. I pray that through each of our lights we will by our actions within our daily lives have drawn many others to the Light that is Christ. I pray and I wish so much that everyone will be a partner in His Light, unfortunately this is not so nor will it be so until after the Last Trumpet sounds. Even Jesus Himself spoke of the one unforgivable sin, blasphemy towards the Holy Spirit.

 

Friends, I hope that you have enjoyed the read today. Hopefully some of you now have a better understanding of the meaning of, the definition of the word blasphemy. It is a creation of darkness, there is no Godly Light in it. And to whomever the light of darkness is in shall be cast from the Light of God into utter darkness which is called the second death, separation from God forever. I hope and I pray that you and your loved ones lights through God’s Holy Spirit shines forever. In the love of our Lord Jesus I thank your for your time in reading this letter to you.

 

My Thoughts On The Abortion Issue Both Good, Bad And Sideways

My Thoughts On The Abortion Issue Both Good, Bad And Sideways

 

Abortion, a very divisive issue here in the U.S. and I would guess it to be so all over the globe. As a Christian I did spend sometime looking through the encyclopedic Index of my King James Bible trying to make sure of the things I write concerning God’s Word on this issue. The ultimate opinion on this subject matter is God’s, not so much mine or yours. But for good conversation on this difficult matter this isn’t going to be a strictly “the Bible says” type of letter to you this evening. By the way, the word abortion is not found anywhere within the King James version of the Bible. I can not say with certainty that the word abortion isn’t found in any of the other translations of Scripture as there are some versions that I have not read cover to cover as I have with the King James.

 

I guess I am going to tackle this subject in three formats, 1.) my personal thoughts on the matter as if there was no Biblical or Spiritual thought, knowledge or concern on the matter. 2.) The way our Nations Supreme Court has looked at it. 3.) What God has said about it, His view. I am neither a lawyer nor a judge nor do I wish to be so, lets see where this train of thought, study and prayer takes us on this subject matter.

1.) My personal thoughts. If I did not know what God’s Word says, nor had I ever heard of others opinions argued on the radio and TV, I believe the following would most likely be my thoughts on this matter. I believe there is nothing that can be considered joyous about an abortion. It would be something that a person would not want to have to do even in a case of rape or incest if there is anything even slightly decent about the person at all. I believe that by the end of the first trimester (3 months) should be long enough for a person to make up their own mind about doing it, or not. I believe that there is no excuse for Partial Birth abortions. If a pregnancy has gone far enough that the baby has any reasonable chance of being born alive instead of being aborted then aborting the child should be considered as first degree murder unless the mothers life is in serious trouble if she continues the pregnancy. My ‘no’ to abortion would have to also cover aborting any child that through our medical knowledge tells us will be in anyway ‘deformed’. If a child has active brainwaves and a heart beat, then it is a living Soul from God. To put an end to it life from that point on should have to be considered as first degree murder, at least that is my personal opinion on this matter. Maybe it is just my lack of knowledge but I do have a question. The news media often talks about how thousands of couples are on the waiting list to be able to adopt a child, especially a newborn baby. Why is it that the ‘Right To Life’ supporters can’t somehow work with the politicians to make the rules easier for people to adopt? This would/should end the need for the ‘black market’ baby industry. To me this seems like it should be a ‘hand in glove’ resolution, a perfect working relationship.

 

2.) The law of our Country concerning abortion, what the U.S. Supreme Court has stated as the law. In 1973 the Supreme Court ruled in the “Roe verses Wade” decision that said abortion was to be legal in our Nation. Plus they have ruled many times since then on many different type of challenges in favor of “the woman’s right” to choose whether to give birth or to abort a child. I believe that Americas two most important documents are the Scriptures and the Constitution, in that order. It is plain and it is obvious to anyone who studies into this matter that the Constitution was written by men who considered themselves to be Christians. So they wrote it from a Christian view point. But they also wanted there to be a separation of Church and State. On the one side of the coin so that the State could not dictate to the Churches how they could worship as with England’s ‘Church of England’. On the other side of the coin they did not want a State Church being allowed to be giving orders to the Government on how they were allowed to govern. Nor were they in favor of one ‘Faith’ being in a position where all the people had to belong to one Faith.

 

3.) I am going to put down on paper a few Scriptures that I hope will help you think about what the Holy Spirit has to say on this matter. Jeremiah 1:5, God speaking to Jeremiah. “Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a Prophet unto the nations.”

Luke 1: 15, this is from God in reference to John the Baptist, the last half of the verse. “and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mothers womb.”

Mark 10: 14 and 15, This is Jesus speaking to His Apostles. “Let the little children come unto Me and do not forbid them; for as such is the Kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God (the Holy Spirit) as a little child does, he shall not enter therein.”

Matthew 18: 6—Jesus speaking to His Disciples. “But whosoever shall offend (hurt) one of these little ones which believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” 18: 7 “Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence comes!”

I will finish this section with one last verse. 1 John 3: 15—The Apostle John speaking. “Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”

Justice is higher than simply following the rules of man because the rules are often unjust, but if we put the rules of God first in our heart, they will save our Soul. Man kind can only kill our body, they can only condemn our Soul if we give it to them to destroy. So, consider, which Judge should we fear the most? For the Holy Spirit is the teacher and the counselor to the true followers of Christ.

Well, thats it, I hope you enjoyed the read, I hope that it was able to evoke some thoughts within your heart and Soul. I hope that you and your loved ones are able to have a great evening, God bless.

 

 

Book Of Revelation Chapter #11

Revelation Chapter #11

 

Here in chapter #11 we are going to be talking about the projected time frame from the closing of the Great Tribulation Period. In the first 14 verses of the 19 in this chapter we are still in the interlude between the 6th and the 7th Trumpet. Within the last 5 verses we will have a discussion about the 7th Trumpet. In the beginning of chapter #10 I wrote to you of the 3 Personalities that would be made known to us during this time frame. In chapter #10 we were informed of the ‘Mighty Angel’ who had the ‘Little Book’ in His hand. This is the Angel who had planted one foot in the Sea and the other on the Land. This ‘Mighty Angel’ then claimed all of Creation for their Creator. In these first 14 verses of chapter 11 we are informed of the “Two Witnesses”. Now folks, if you would please stay with me as I put a light onto these two Witnesses and upon this very important chapter.

 

Verse #1.) “And there was given to me (the Apostle John) a reed like unto a rod: and the Angel (the Mighty Angel from chapter 10) stood, saying, rise and measure the Temple of God and the Alter and them that worship therein.” “But the Court that is outside the Temple leave out and do not measure it. For it is given unto the Gentiles (non-Jews): They (Gentiles) shall tread under foot the Holy City for forty and two months.” “And I will give power unto My Two Witnesses and they shall Prophesy (Preach) one thousand and two hundred and sixty days (three and one half years, or 42 months) clothed in sackcloth.” “These are the two Olive Trees and the Two Candlesticks standing before the God of the Earth.” “And if any man will hurt them, fire will come forth out of their mouth and devour their enemies. If and man will try to hurt them,  they will in this manner be killed.” “These (two men) will have the power to shut Heaven so that it will not rain in the days of their Prophesy. And they will have the power over the waters to turn them to blood and to smite the Earth with all plagues, as often as they wish.” “And when they have finished their testimony, the Beast (Devil) that ascends out of the Bottomless Pit shall make war against them and shall overcome them and kill them.” “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city (Jerusalem) which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” “And the people of all the kindred’s and tongues and Nations shall see their dead bodies three and one half days and shall not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.” “And they that dwell upon the Earth shall rejoice over them (their dead bodies) and make merry and shall send gifts one to another; because these two Prophets had tormented them that dwell on the Earth.” “And after three and a half days the Spirit of Life from God shall enter into them and they shall stand upon their feet and great fear shall fall upon them that see them.” “And they shall hear a Great Voice from Heaven saying unto them (the two Witnesses) come up hither. And they shall ascend up to Heaven in a cloud and their enemies shall see them.” “And in the same hour there shall be a great earthquake and a tenth part of the city shall fall. And in the earthquake seven thousand men shall be slain. And the rest shall be frightened and they shall give glory to the God of Heaven.” “The Second Woe is past and behold the Third Woe shall come quickly.”

 

Verse 15.) “And the Seventh Angel sounded (His Trumpet) and there were great Voices in Heaven, saying, the Kingdom’s of this world are become the Kingdom’s of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever over them.” “And the four and twenty Elders which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces and worshiped God.” “Saying, we give Thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which is and was and are to come. Because You have taken to Thee Thy great power and hast reigned.” “And the Nations were angry and thy (God’s) wrath is come. And the time of the dead that they should be judged. And that You (God) will give reward unto Your Servants the Prophets and to the Saints and to them that fear Thy Name, small and great and You will destroy them which destroy the Earth.” (Last verse #19) “And the Temple of God was opened in Heaven and there shall be seen in His Temple the Ark of His Testament. And there were lightnings and voices and thundering and an earthquake and great hail.”

 

Folks the Books of Enoch and the Book of Nicodemus, both of which were not Canonized, do give the information as to whom these Two Witnesses are. Think about it for a moment, who are the only two men within Scripture who were “Called Up” to God and did not die a physical death upon the Earth? Even our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) had to suffer a physical death. The answer is really quite simple, Enoch and Elijah! I write this now to all of you, friend of God and Foe, to all who love God and to all who hate Him and His Christ, consider your ways. For the breath of a man is but the blink of the eye and Christ’s Judgement Seat awaits everyone of us. The days of our time is short and eternity is being weighed in the balance for each of us, so friends, please, consider your ways!

 

 

Bible: Book Of Revelation Chapter #10

Book Of Revelation Chapter #10

 

The theme of chapter 10 is the events between the 6th and the 7th Trumpets, the Mighty Angel and the “Little Book.”

“And I (John) saw another Mighty Angel come down from Heaven clothed with a cloud: And a rainbow was upon His head, and His face was like unto the sun, and His feet were as pillars of fire.” “And He had in His hand a ‘Little Book’ that was open, and He sat His right foot upon the Sea and His left foot upon the Earth.” “And He cried with a loud voice, as when a Lion roars, and when He had spoken, Seven Thunders uttered their voices.” “After the Seven Thunders had uttered Their voices, I was about to write when I heard a Voice from Heaven saying to me, seal up those things which the 7 Thunders spoke and do not write them.” “And the Angel I saw standing upon the Earth and the Sea lifted up His hand to Heaven.” “And swore by Him that lives forever and ever who created Heaven and the things that are therein. And the Sea and the things that are therein, that they should be no longer.” “But in the days of the Voice of the 7th Angel, when He shall begin to speak, the mystery of God shall be shown, as He has declaired to His Servants the Prophets.” “And the Voice that I had heard from Heaven spoke to me again, and said, go and take the Little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel which stands upon the Sea and upon the Earth.” “And I went up to the Angel and said unto Him, give me the Little Book. And He said unto me, take it and eat it; and it shall make your belly bitter, but in your mouth it shall be as sweet as honey.” “And I took the Little Book out of the Angels hand and ate it. And in my mouth it was as sweet as honey. But as soon as I had eaten it, it was bitter in my belly.” “And the Angel said unto me, you must Prophesy (preach) again before many people and Nations and Languages and Kings.”

 

Here in Chapter #10 in the space between the 6th and the 7th Trumpet 3 Personalities are introduce to us. Here in Chapter #10 the first of the 3, which is the mighty Angel with the Little Book is introduced to us. Then in the first 14 verses of Chapter #11 the other two will be introduced to us. This ‘Little Book’ is the Book of the 7 Seals. This Book is the Title, the Deed Book, to the Earth. By chance did you notice that this ‘Little Book’ was transferred from the Hands of God The Father to God The Son who then opened it by the breaking of its 7 Seals? Then, the Book was given to the Mighty Angel who had one foot in the Sea and one foot upon the Earth who then claimed all things for God their Creator! Friends, no matter who we are, no matter how powerful or important we think we are, we as Humans, we own nothing in this life! If any of us are doubting these things which are being written by the Hand of God’s Holy Spirit through His Apostle John please pay attention now. Please lend an ear, and open your eyes and heart so that you/we may obtain a better understanding of what the Truth is.

 

If a person truly owns something, for example, land, a house, a car, bank account of jewelry, then no one can legally take it from us, correct? When we purchase something we paid for it, we paid our taxes on it and we received a Title or a Deed from the purchase, it’s ours, correct? No friends, that is not correct. If a person legally owns something then it can not be legally taken away from them at least that is the assumption that we are taught to be the truth, at least it is here in the States. At the very least we the people are being deceived by government propaganda. For the purpose of examples let us use our car and our home that we spent years laboring to pay for. We have the titles, we have the Deed, it is ours, our name is upon them as ‘the owner’ and they are tucked away in our safety deposit box at the place that we bank, so they are secure, they are ours, right? Unfortunately, no.

 

Here is the example I will use for you. Each year the City, County, State and Federal Governments continue to demand more and more tax revenue from the people who live under their authority. Be it a personal property tax, an income tax, or even ‘owed’ Social Security taxes or any other various levels of tax that is laid upon the people by the various ‘Taxing Authorities’, we never ever quit owing these government entities. Here in the U.S. our Country’s Founding Fathers wrote a Constitution making such taxes illegal. But, these career politicians of these past two hundred years have circumvented Our Constitution making it almost completely of no effect. They have done this so that they are the ones with all of the power and money and not the people. Friends, things are only going to get much worse as the Clock of Time continues to wind down. Now, back to the Ownership subject matter. If we as a people decide not to pay Personal Property taxes because we feel that we paid the taxes on ‘our property’ when we bought it, what will happen to us? The only debate will be which government agency will take ‘our property’ and whom will put us in prison first. Folks, it is a reality that the Government owns absolutely everything right down to the clothes on our back and the gold or silver in our mouth. Reality is, the politicians have made it totally ‘legal’ for them to do these things to us, we the people. Folks, we are only renting our possessions from the governments. It is the governments of the world that own every material thing. For it is they who can take our life and everything that we ‘own’. The only thing that they can not take from a person is their Soul. But, if a person desires the material things above all else to where we make ‘things’ our God, then they can win our Soul also.

 

In the Book of Leviticus 25: 23 Moses wrote the following instructions to the people of Israel concerning the land at God’s instruction. “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for you are strangers and sojourners in it with Me.” If you will remember, after our Lord Jesus was baptized and received again His Holy Spirit our Lord went into the wilderness. For 40 days He was tempted by the Devil Himself. Among the temptations the Devil tempted our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) with you can find in the Gospel of Mark 4: 5-8, please consider what is written here. “And the Devil, taking Him (Jesus) up into a high mountain, showed Him all the Kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.” “And the Devil said to Him (Jesus), all this power will I give you, and the glory of them. For they are delivered unto me and to whosoever I will give it.” “If you will therefore bow down and worship me, all shall be yours.” “And Jesus answered and said unto him, get Thee behind me Satan, for it is written, thou shall worship the Lord thy God and Him alone shall you serve.” Please now consider this reality, the Kingdoms (Governments) of the world belong/ed to Satan and He gave the Power and the glory (riches) of them to whomsoever He (Satan) pleased/chose to. Also please consider that if He did not rule/own them, how could He (Satan) give them to Jesus or to anyone else? 

 

Did you notice what the Devils price tag was for Him to give up His power over the Nations? God the Son bowing down and worshiping the Devil! You see that is something that the Devil has always wanted, to be worshiped as God, in other words, Total Submission to Him! Friends, this battle is still true unto this very day and it will be until Armageddon. Just as we humans through our lack of knowledge and ego’s think we own material possessions, but we do not, at best, we are renting them within the Devils system of things. So, the Devil claims all the world’s riches and their governments to be His, and they are, but it is only a temporary thing and He knows it and He is furious about it. The real fact is that all things were created by God, for God and all things belong to God. You nor I nor Kings or Presidents or the Devil Himself truly hold the deed to the Earth, God does. The Devil knows this and it is something we humans need to fully understand, we own nothing, simply put the Devil and His governments claim it. But they are only temporary folks, they shall pass away into the Pit of Hell along with all the people who worship the material things of this life. Friends this world will follow the Demons into the Pit of the Earth and I just pray that none of us ever see the place.

 

Do not be dismayed at these words nor be distraught by them. The Light that is God is only a prayer away. We either serve God or we serve money, no one can really serve both. The Kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdoms or our Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua) through His judgement as the Creator and the Redeemer of this world. The whole Earth belongs to Him, we are told by the Apostle Paul in the Book of Romans 9: 28 “For He (Jesus) will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the Earth.” The Prophet Daniel labeled this the Tribulation period as 7 years.

 

In the Lord’s Olivet Discourse in the Gospel of Matthew 24: 22 it is written “And except those days should be shortened no flesh would be saved: but for the Elects sake those days shall be shortened.” The Angel is telling the Elect, the believers and follower’s of God “don’t worry, he that endures to the end, the same shall be saved.” Friends, I close this letter to you this evening with the following thoughts. The Apostle John believed that all the Nations, Peoples, Languages and Colors needed to hear and to understand the Word Of God. All people, then and now need to be warned that Judgement is coming to/for all of us. There will be millions of people who will go into the Tribulation Period and it will seem like a thousand years long to them, this period will be literally like a Hell on Earth. We only think that the evil we see now is horrible but as the old saying goes, we ain’t seen nothing yet. The Book of Revelation is 22 chapters long so we are almost half way through this Book of Prophesy. Prophesy about and against the people and the Nations of this System of things is necessary, for reality is that there is a Judgement to come for all of us. Folks, if we will study this Book of Prophesy it will have a definite effect upon our life! Either it will help bring us closer to our Creator, or it will drive us further from Him.

(Philosophy/Poem) Lord What Did You Say?

Lord What Did You Say?

 

This poem is derived from Biblical Scripture

I used Job 33:14-16 and Proverbs 6:16-19

 

 

Brother, what did the Lord say

You and I, are we deaf like Brother Job

Did He speak to us once, or was it twice

In a dream, in a vision in the night

When deep sleep falls upon us

When we lay slumbering upon our bed

It is then that God opens the ears of man

The Lord sealing His instructions in our Soul

 

 

Seven things He tells us will seal Hell upon our deaths

Our proud looks and lying tongues we think we can hide

The innocent blood we shed with no remorse, care or tears

Our wicked ways not thinking of when our Soul is ripped away

From man these things we can conceal, but never from Christ

 

 

To mischief deeds with fleet feet we run not caring who we trample

Upon the witness stand we lie to spill innocent blood just for fun

With little thought, lies and discord among our own family we spread

Then wonder why the cold grave turns to the heat of our eternal bed

Could it be because we did not heed the torments of Job in the visions

Nor the words or warnings the Lord in our sleep had put into our head

The Book Of Revelation, Chapter #9

The Book Of Revelation, Chapter #9

 

As we begin the 9th chapter of Revelation let us remember the last verse of Chapter #8 and it’s warning to us humans. “And I beheld and heard an Angel flying in the midst of Heaven, saying with a loud voice, woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the Earth by reason of the other voices of the Trumpet of the 3 Angels, which are yet to sound.” As we read this 9th chapter where the 5th and 6th Trumpets are blown all true Christians should be on our knees in worship and in thanks to our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) that we will have been Raptured before these events. These woes that the Apostle John writes about covers the deepest and the most painful events of the Great Tribulation Period. These two Trumpets will be during the last 3 1/2 years of the 7 years of the Great Tribulation Period. This is the Seventh Week of the Prophesy of the Prophet Daniel. This will be the darkest days in the human history of time. (Please read Daniel 9: 24).

 

Let us now study the events of the 5th and 6th Trumpets within this 21 verses of this chapter. Hopefully for all those who prayerfully read these verses the Holy Spirit of God will open many eyes to its understanding. 1.) “And a Fifth Angel sounded and I saw a Star fall from Heaven unto the Earth: And unto Him was given the Key of the Bottomless Pit.” “And He opened the Bottomless Pit, as the smoke of a large furnace; and the Sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the Pit.” “And there came out of the smoke Locusts upon the Earth: and unto them was given power, as the Scorpions of the Earth have power.” “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the Earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; but to only hurt those men which do not have the Seal of God in their foreheads.” “And it was given to the Locust that they should not kill the men, but that the men should be tormented by their stings for 5 months. And their torment would be like unto the torment of a Scorpion when he strikes a man.” “In those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. They shall desire to die but death shall flee from them.” “The shapes of the Locusts were like unto horses prepared for battle. And on their heads were Crowns like unto gold and their faces were as the faces of men.” “They had hair like unto the hair of women and their teeth were as the teeth of Lions.” “And they had breastplates as it were the breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of Chariots of horses running in battle.” “They had tails like unto Scorpions and there were stings in their tails and their power was to hurt men for 5 months.” “They have a King over them, which is the Angel of the Bottomless Pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon. But in the Greek tongue His name is Apollyon (which means, a destroyer).

 

“One woe is past, but behold, there comes 2 more woes hereafter.” 13.) “And the 6th Angel sounded and I heard a voice from the 4 Horns of the Golden Alter which is before God.” “Saying to the 6th Angel which had the Trumpet, loose the 4 Angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.” “And the 4 Angels were freed which were prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year for they were to slay 1/3 of all mankind.” “And the number of the Army of the Horsemen were two hundred thousand thousands: and I heard the number of them.” “And thus I saw the Horses in the vision and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire and of Jacinth and brimstone: and the heads of the Horses were as the heads of Lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.” “By these there was 1/3 of all men killed, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone which came out of their mouths.” “For their power was in their mouth’s and in their tails: for their tails were like unto Serpents and they had heads and with them they do hurt men.” “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the works of their hands. In that they should not worship Devils or idols of gold and silver and brass and stone and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.” 21.) “Neither did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

 

The meaning of “the Star” in verse one is very simple, without a doubt this is Satan. A physical Star can ‘do’ nothing. This verse makes it plain that ‘this Star’ has a “Being” to Him. If you would, please refer to the Apostle John’s writing in the Book of 2 Corinthians 11: 14, or the Gospel of Luke in 10: 18. They will give you further understanding to the fact that this “Star” is the Devil Himself. If you would, please also checkout the Old Testament Prophet Isiah when he wrote what is found in chapter 14 verse 12. “How art thou fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, Son of the morning! How are thou cut down to the ground, which has weakened the nations!”

 

In verse #2, the Pit of which the Devi opened up is Hell. In verse 3 these “Locusts” are like unto something that the face of the Earth has never seen. These Locusts will do the exact opposite of the Locusts that we humans are used to seeing throughout our history. These Locusts will not harm/eat any of the plants and trees but they will bring great harm and pain to the human race where the Locusts that we are used to experiencing do no such a thing. If you are wondering about the meaning of verse #4 please reference the first Book of the Bible, Genesis in chapter 4 verse 15. This passage may give you a little more insight. When we reach verse 13 we come to the 6th Trumpet. The 6th Angel blows His Trumpet then he is commanded by Jesus (Yeshua) to let loose the 4 evil Angels who were imprisoned in the river Euphrates. Jesus has now removed the 7th Seal which led to  the Trumpets which will lead into the 7 Personalities, then the 7 Bowls of wrath. So many of mankind’s sins have generated from this area of the world which is modern day Iraq that the ground is soaked in innocent peoples blood. By the way, in modern day Iraq is where the Tower of Babel is also located and this area that leads to the final attempt to destroy the Nation of Israel through Masada which will lead to Armageddon, the final battle.

 

Friends, in this time of the Great Tribulation 1/3 of all of mankind will be killed. On the planet today there are over 7 billion people so we are talking about approximately 2 and 1/2 billion deaths from this one event. Folks, these are times of many horrors like the Earth has never seen before. Though previous Trumpets we had already seen 1/4 of the worlds population dying and now 1/3 more. If you add 1/4 plus 1/3 that equals 7/12 or more that half of the worlds population, probably somewhere close to 4 billion people dying. Folks, a true Hell on Earth awaits for the people who reject their own Savior Jesus Christ. In verses 20 & 21 we are told that the rest of the human race that survives these horrors will still refuse to repent to God for their sins. How sad of a time this Great Tribulation period will be, I wish it upon no one and there is no reason for anyone to have to experience this horror. We are all given an out, a pass, to this time period. We can miss it simply by living a life of love for each other and trying our best to follow after our Savior Jesus Christ in our daily lives. Faith and love, or a living Hell, it seems like a simple choice yet so many refuse God’s love, so sad.

 

(Poem Of Truth And Faith) Hell Is Almost Empty

Hell Is Almost Empty

 

Hell is almost empty of its Demons

Only a few guards there do remain

The Angels of Hell they live among us

Some do hide their faces to the blind

Most assuredly hiding within empty shells

 

The body of a human is like unto a dwelling

For we are all dwelling places of our own Soul

We ourselves and I, but what dwells with us

When we live alone there is no one guard our back

One living alone is no challenge for the wolves

 

When our doors are broken evil comes to live

We have no defense from the flames of the fire

Our life, our Soul, our family are but kindling

The Devils Angels roam freely within our world

Only God’s Spirit can protect us from the flames

Book Of Revelation Chapter #7

Book Of Revelation Chapter #7

 

As we now start the 7th Chapter of Revelation I would have thought that it would have started off with Jesus breaking the 7th Seal, but that is not the case. The information about the 7th Seal does not start until the beginning of chapter #8. The 7th chapter is 17 verses long and is broken down into two sections. The first breakdown is chapters 1-8 then 9-17.  Verses 1-8 is dedicated to the 144,000 Jews, 12,000 from each of the 12 Tribes of Israel. Then the second subject matter in 9-17 which is about the ‘great multitude’ of the Gentiles (non-Jews) that are before the Throne of God. We will breakdown the meaning of both of these subject matters so that their definitions and truths will be obvious to everyone.

 

The first 3 verses of chapter 7 are quite self explanatory. Yet it seems that verses 3 through 8 dumbfound a lot of people so lets study these first 8 verses now. I pray that the Holy Spirit will open the eyes and minds of all who earnestly seek the Light of their meanings. 1.) “And after these things (the opening of the 6th Seal and the events thereof) I saw 4 Angels standing on the 4 corners of the Earth, holding the 4 winds of the Earth, so that the wind would not blow on the Earth, nor on the Sea, nor on any tree.” “And I saw another Angel ascending from the East, having the Seal of the living God: and He cried with a loud voice to the 4 Angels, to whom it was given to damage the Earth and the Sea.” “Saying, do not hurt the Earth, neither the Sea, nor the trees, until We have sealed the Servants of God in their foreheads.” “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed a hundred and forty-four thousand from all of the Tribes of the Children of Israel.”

 

Then starting with verse 5 through verse 8 the Scriptures name off each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. From each of these twelve tribes there will come 12,000 Souls that must and will be Sealed, saved for Heavenly Service to God. Who these 144,000 people are is very simple, we have already been told. They are Jews with equal amounts from each of the 12 Tribes of Israel. 12 x 12,000= 144,000. Now if you would, for a moment, skip forward to 14:4. There we will learn more about them . It reads “the 144,000 which were redeemed from the Earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb (Jesus The Christ) wheresoever He goes. They were Redeemed (bought with the Blood of Christ) from among men, being the First Fruits unto God and to the Lamb.” I hope that this Scriptural explanation will lay to rest peoples wondering as to whom these 144,000 are and from where they will come from.

 

Now let us discuss the “Great Multitude” of verses 9-17. This “Great Multitude of Gentiles.” First we need to understand exactly what a “Gentile” is. Simply, a Gentile is any person who is not full blood of the House (Linage) of Israel. This definition also means that about 99.99% of the people of today that call themselves Jews are not of this ‘Pure’Bloodline. To be so, a person would have to be 100% of that pure bloodline. There is a small group of men and women that live in Israel that are set aside separate from the general population and these people do not work outside of their own Commune. These people are also exempt from Israels military service. These people are of the Bloodline of King David. It is this Bloodline that the Messiah (Christ) will come from. So, it is this Bloodline that the Nation of Israel is trying to keep pure and safe for the reason of the coming of The Christ through it.

 

The Jewish Nation has the right idea in what they are doing here, to safe guard the Holy Bloodline. But, it is also true that they have missed the proverbial boat. You see, the Jewish People deny that Jesus was/is The Christ. So, they are still looking for Christ to come for the first time. They are still looking for Christ to come for the first time and to set up His Kingdom and to rule the world from His Throne in Jerusalem from the Temple Mount. What they are seeking will come to pass but when this does happen it will be from the Lord’s Second Advent, not His first.

 

Now lets get back to the Redeemed Multitude of Gentiles. The Apostle John speaks of this crowd as being huge, more than a man could count. In Verse 9 John wrote “I beheld a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations and kindred’s and people and tongues, stood before the Throne and before the Lamb, clothed in White Robes, with palms in their hands.”

 

Now lets read through the last 5 verses of this chapter so that we can understand more clearly concerning these Gentiles. The Apostle John wrote “and one of the Elders said unto me, who are these who are arrayed in White Robes and where did they come from?”  “And I said unto Him, Sir, you know. And He said unto me, these are they which came out of the Great Tribulation and have washed their Robes and have made them White in the Blood of the Lamb.” “Therefor they are before the Throne of God and serve Him day and night in His Temple: and He that sits on the Throne shall dwell among them.” “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore. Neither shall the Sun light on them, nor any heat.” “For the Lamb which is in the midst of the Throne shall feed them and shall lead them unto Living Fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”

 

For the people who think it is okay to be prejudice all I can say is folks, you badly need to rethink your positions on the racism matter.  The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:32 “give no offence, neither to the Jews, the Gentiles, nor to the Church of God.” Paul also wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:13 “For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be slaves or free, we have all been made to drink into one Spirit.” Then here the Apostle John said in verse 9 “The Holy Fathers children that stood redeemed before His Throne were people from every nation and of every tongue.” Friends, it is not okay to hate, Jesus Himself told us that if a man hates his brother (fellow person) without a cause (something that a person has/had no choice in the matter, like ones skin color or where they were born) that the hater is in danger of Hell’s Fire. When a person is filled with hate it is very often that they become a mirror image of the very thing that they hate. If a person is filled with hate they have no part of the Spirit of God.  And if we reject Jesus and His Teachings in this life Jesus has made it very plain that He will reject us before the Throne of God at our own Judgement. Friends, I do not wish such a horrible fate on anyone. I hope and I pray that we will all be dressed in White Robes before Jesus once this journey of life is over. I pray that the Lord will bless and protect you all everyday.

 

The Book Of Revelation Chapter #6 Part 2 of 2

The Book Of Revelation Chapter #6 Part 2 of 2

 

The opening of the Fifth Seal and the prayers of the martyred Saints is where we begin part #2 at. Please refer to part #1 for the information on the first Four Seals.  The Souls that are under the Alter in Heaven are the Souls of those that were murdered for their actions, sayings, and for living and following God’s Word, and these are those who lived during the time of the Old Testament Law. In the Book of Luke 11:50-51 our Lord Jesus spoke on this matter when He said the following. “the blood of all the Prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world may be required of this generation. From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zachariah, which perished (was murdered) between the Alter and the Temple. Verily I say unto you, it shall be required of this generation.”

 

With the opening of the Sixth Seal, the Day of Wrath has come. This is the beginning of the end of the Great Tribulation Period. The events of this Sixth Seal are horrifying just to read them. Please reread chapter 6:12-14. Think about how terrifying to be living in this time. Please also refer to chapter 20:11 and to the Old Testament Prophet Nahum 1:5. It is easy to see how little man kind and our puny efforts are in comparison is to the Might of our own Creator. Satan and His Angels have already learned this lesson the hard way. But because of humans self induced blindness and cold hardheartedness toward God and His Word humankind is walking down the path to our own destruction and into the pit of Hell hand in hand with the Demons they so blindly worship and serve here in this life.

 

Folks, why is it that we humans so often choose to walk away from the Light and into darkness? In Matthew 11:28-29 the Lord gave all of us the invitation “come unto Me all you that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your Souls.” Friends, why do humans walk away from an invitation from our Creator such as this? Is it ego, arrogance, stupidity? There is no doubt that it is the most eternally ignorant thing a human can do yet billions of people do it still every single day. But folks, do not be angry at those around us who have turned their backs on God. Instead, love them, care about them, pray everyday for them. Try to help them see the Light and the Love of Jesus Christ through the examples that we ourselves portray from our own daily walk with God. For if we ourselves instead walk our daily lives in the Devils Darkness of hate, lies and greed then not only are we condemning our own selves to Hell once we have died but we have also helped lead others down that same pathway to Hell.

 

I do wish that all humans would open their eyes and understand and believe in the love, mercy and power of Jesus Christ. I do believe that the human race’s time left before the Rapture is quite short, and no, I do not know the date nor does anyone else know it.  I do believe that we all need to turn our lives over to our Creator and let Him have the controls of our personal operating systems. We are all known by our actions, our works, the way we choose to live everyday. The people around us, our family, friends, neighbors and coworkers notice what kind of examples we set each day whether they are good or bad and God notices these things also. Friends, the four Horsemen are coming, the end of each of our days here on this planet is coming and none of us know how many days we have remaining. When we are standing at the Judgement Seat of Christ and He asks us why we lived our lives the way we did, what will our answers be? There will be many who will try to lie their way out of damnation but even habitual liars like Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump are going to be able to lie their way out of their due rewards.
