Are You Ready for the Coming King?

” Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and let the unrighteousness man his thoughts; and let him RETURN TO THE LORD, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly PARDON. For My thoughts are not your thoughts; neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. ” (Isaiah 55:6-9)

Unfortunately, for millions, the Lord won’t be found as this planet winds down to the end of the age and Jesus Christ returns to rule and reign for a thousand years. Why not? Because they simply are not looking and seeking Him. The Lord is near ! “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision ! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”(Joel 3:14) The human race is born in sin and most seek their own pleasure instead of seeking God first. Worries of this life take center stage in most minds with little thought given to their own spiritual awakening, or soul searching or contact with the Creator of the universe and much less where they will spend eternity, for the soul of man never dies. Everyone will spend it somewhere; either in glorious peace and wonderment in heaven with the Father and His Son or in the deep recesses of hell with Satan and his angels in the lake of fire reserved for the wicked. There will be weeping and pain and gnashing of teeth and it will never end.

The love of money, power and pleasures drive humans to do the most despicable and barbaric acts that the majority of people can not even imagine in their wildest dreams. As the bible so rightly quotes; ” For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”(Ephesians 6:12) Struggles transliteration in the Greek is “Pale” which means “Wrestling” and is from the root word “Pallo” which means “to vibrate.” It’s the match of the ages. Notice it is not a war. The war has already been won by Jesus who made an open defeat of Satan when He arose from the dead for the whole universe to see. For us, it’s a struggle, a wrestling match to claim what is already ours by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony by which we overcome the bible says. Team Jesus is always the victors!

World headlines denote the tremendous evil circling the globe right now. And for anyone who has the slightest idea of all the foretold prophesies; you know all things are being fulfilled right before your eyes and the soon return of Jesus as King is just barely over the horizon and right around the corner. We are not talking decades now, we are literally talking within a very short few years if not sooner. Even only five short years ago; who would have ever guessed that the words of Jesus spoken in the gospels and the warnings of Revelation would appear right on the scene, right in front of our eyes in our lifetime? They will kill you and think they are offering their God a service. The Christian beheadings and murders and persecutions have begun all around the world.

Even the majority of non-believers have heard of the Antichrist and the battle of armageddon and heard of the coming wars. They have also heard of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. No one is without excuse, no one. ” For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”(Romans 1:20)” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who SUPPRESS THE TRUTH in unrighteousness, for God has made it EVIDENT WITHIN THEM.” (Romans 1:18-19) now that’s powerful ! Everyone knows deep inside and will have no excuses why they didn’t seek God, why they didn’t learn the truth, why they didn’t study the bible, why they didn’t pray and why they didn’t believe. And the ones who flatly refused to repent when they knew the truth, woe to them.

This period of grace is almost at the close. Soon every nation, tongue and tribe will have heard the gospel as a witness and then the end will come. Jesus said “As in the days of Noah” is what it will be like, immorality and violence will cover the earth and people will still be marrying and buying and selling goods. When they least expect it, Boom, the last trumpet will sound and Jesus will burst through the Eastern Sky to gather His elect from the four corners of the earth! Are you ready? Really ready? I would hate to be in your shoes if your not. There is no second chances. This life is all you have, the price for your sins has already been paid, repent today and turn from your wicked ways and call on the name of Jesus to forgive you and save you. Don’t be like the rest of the world who are so busy with the cares of life and making more money that all of this takes you totally unaware. God loves  you, will you love Him back???

So do we take homosexuality off the sin list now? How about adultery or fornication? How about pedophilia? Perhaps polygamy. How about racism? 
The sin list varies greatly by individuals and churches. So how is it that the government and the courts get to decide what you can believe, or how you behave based on your personal beliefs or religion? 
Tell me the difference between what’s going on now and what was going on under Hitler. Now the racism isn’t just towards the Jews; now add in all bible believing Christian’s into the mix.
Oh but wait, now the “one percenters”, you know the multi-million dollar Corporations like Facebook, Twitter and even Starbucks? Now they get to tell you what and how to believe or else. Not exactly freedom of speech or religion anymore is it?
 Try getting a Muslim bakery to plan your gay wedding or take pictures,  they won’t do it. Ah, but that’s ok, they are Muslims (and would stone every gay person in America if they could get away with it.) It’s just the dirty rotten Jews or Christians. Such hypocrisy in America its beyond sickening. 
I have a couple of gay friends. I have a gay cousin. I also have gay nieces. Do I hate them all? Please…are you stupid? Of course not, but to hear the media explain it; every bible believing Christian hates gay’s and the LBGT community. What everyone really hates is the cruel and unusual punishment received by any citizen based upon their beliefs and religion. Whether it’s loss of business, money or harassment in any form. What people really hate is the Hypocrisy from government and the public whether it’s directed to or from the gay or straight communities or towards individuals. 
Everyone just wants to tell Christian’s to “shut up and feed the poor” and stay out of all other social issues and government. 
Look, if I believe the entire bible and hold to every word as truth and do my best to follow the teachings, then I will always believe adultery and fornication and homosexuality is sin and each person must make the choice whether to sin or not. To repent or not. To believe or not. But if I own a bakery, or  Pizza parlor or photography studio or any other business, I’m certainly not going to go against my beliefs in the Bible and what I feel deep in my heart to be right for the sake of compromise. In all things I must answer to God first and not man.
In the same vein, if I cannot get what I want from a business, I simply go to one who meets my needs. Come on how hard is that to do? No it’s about making a statement  even to the point of ruining lives and families; just for the sake of making a statement and proving ones point, never mind the human cost involved. 
The media has done a masterful job of turning gay’s against Christians because they don’t agree with their lifestyle. Things have turned from tolerance to totalitarianism concerning the LBGT community. From acceptance and getting along to in your face radical fascism. Scare tactics work well among a politically correct society.
At the end of the day what matters is loving God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself. We will all stand before our creator some day and be judged or not depending if JESUS knew us as He said “you must be born again to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. That outcome is His; the choices are ours alone….

Jesus Shed His Blood Eight Times

Do you realize JesusshedHisbloodEighttimes for you and me ? Science has known for some time that it is possible for a human to secrete blood from their skin due to tremendous stress and agony brought on by mental anguish or fear and circumstance. The firsttimeJesusshedHisblood for us was in the Garden of Gethsemane. Luke 22:44: “And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down on the ground.Jesus knew from the foundation of the world that He would come to earth as a man and be crucified for us. He was in such stress and dread, He ask the Father if He was willing to remove this cup from him, and said not my will, but Yours be done…

God Can’t Anoint Your Avatar

As the Bible says knowledge will be greatly increased in the last days and men will run too and fro across the earth. We are living in those days! Social media has exploded around the world with up to the moment Tweets, hourly Facebook updates, and never ending Fantasy Worlds of online virtual worlds where anyone can pick an Avatar and be totally unidentifiable, incognito and secretly slip into worlds and virtual relationships never before imagined by the public at large. Games like Second Life, IMVU, ourWorld, Moove online, WeeWorld and Migo Land are but a few of places teens and adults go to try to escape the reality of this down fallen world but in most cases fall into worlds where sin and perversion are so rampant, they wind up getting bound up by emotional evil at it best with an addicting pull on their souls like some drug that is hard to break.

Unfortunately, many Christians have also taken this tumble into the Virtual Worlds by justifying it as “not real” or “just fantasy”, but are so bound up in the games of sin, they cannot break away from the thrill of it all without anybody knowing or seeing who they really are in real life. The Avatar becomes their true alternative version of themselves, free to do anything they would never do in real life, but think that there are no consequences to sinning heavily in their online virtual worlds. The problem is all sin is just that, “sin,” and the consequences of sin is always death in some form. It could be death in relationships in real life, or leading to death of your soul for eternity. At one point long ago I was involved in virtual worlds and so I know from experience, they are very sinful, addicting and can cause serious issues in a persons real life. Repenting and turning away from this is the only way to escape the bound up way of this lifestyle of online virtual worlds. Asking God for forgiveness and stop sinning is the only way to bring back the peace and blessings in your life.

God can’t bless what you pretend to be. He can’t minister to your mask. God can’t save your selfie! You may have the popularity, you may have the possessions in life, but are your losing yourself? You may have secret pleasures, but are your losing your soul? If your losing yourself; what good is it? God can only bless who you really are, not who you pretend to be. God cannot anoint your Avatar! He knows everything about you. He even knows all your thoughts and sins of your heart. The great news is He is also a loving and forgiving God and His mercies are new every morning. He will forgive you, He will help you overcome, He will never forsake you because He loves you. This Easter season which celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus, make a covenant with God that you will live for Him and turn from your sinful ways and follow His word. God can’t bless or forgive your Avatar, but He can bless and forgive you. Give Him the real “you” from your heart and the times of refreshing will return to your soul. It’s time to stop playing at life as perilous times are beginning and everyone must make a stand for Jesus in this real life God gave us. Get real with God and others and live here, not there….,

America’s Christian Minority

A great shift has taken place in America in the past few years, but the real fruit of those years is just now coming into full bloom and fruition. No longer a Christian nation of the majority, Christians now have become the minority in this society.
You see all the signs in everyday life, everywhere you look and everywhere you go. In all Government and many Public institutions, from the White House to the local school board, Christianity is becoming for all intensive purposes, extinct.

No longer revered and held in the highest esteem among the citizens and her masses; today’s Christianity and Christians have become the punching bags, the cursed at, the mocked and ridiculed by the majority. Fooled by deceivers and Programed by the Media, the Internet and what’s left of Major newspapers around the country; the demonization of anything Christian falls into the liberal and progressive pot to be boiled and cooked again and again and served to the masses as poison, a witches brew, sprinkled with the spices of racism and hatred for anyone who worships Jesus Christ as King.

As the great falling away has begun around the world that the Bible said would come in the last days; America is well on her way to destruction, led by the gods of this new America; government, money and political correctness. New Idols forbidden in years past, include the love of celebrities, the love of perversion, the love of pleasures, the love of violence; summed up in the love of self, instead of God.

Obama declared some years ago that America was no longer a Christian nation to everyone gasps, but he was actually right and to this day is seizing and filling the void left by compromising Christians and sinful pastors who care only about money and growth, not actually about making disciples of Christ. Where the light flickers and dims, the darkness creeps in and takes over.

Though Polling figures show 77-80 percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians including Catholics, those who believe the biblical definition of a Christian are around 40 percent. Entire denominations have become apostate and no longer hold to the truth of the word of God, but instead fear man and society and government and political correctness instead of fearing God. Compromise is the buzzword of the American church today. Is it any wonder America is in such a mess with immorality and sin becoming the norm?

The millennial generation majority have left the faith of their fathers, do not believe in God, rarely if ever attend church or pray and consider themselves atheist or agnostic’s. Most are liberals and progressives and have no problem legalizing marijuana, having children without marriage or killing their own unborn. Of course sexually transmitted diseases has skyrocketed and suicide is at an alarming all time high. These facts are rarely talked about in the media. Along with the new government controls being enacted like common core in all schools, the programming of Americas children will render this nation godless and atheistic in a very few short years. Government officials can hardly wait for all baby boomers to die off, leaving unbelievers in control and all society subservient to government, Americans new god.

The only problem with that scenario is this Republic won’t last much longer with the looming Financial crash right around the corner. And when it comes, banks will lock down, food will become scarce and rioting in the streets, killings and violence will erupt and become a normal occurrence. America will not be the place that you remember. And who knows what terrorist attacks, wars and natural disasters lerk on the horizon.

And now for the good news. Any born again believer can see it all coming and knows what the Bible says about the things leading up to Jesus Second Coming or at least you should. There are thousands upon thousands of true born again believers, a remnant who will never bow to the god of this world or renounce their faith in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Every born again believer knows that Jesus soon return is drawing closer and closer by the year, the months, the days.

We have been warned by Jesus what to expect and told it would be just like the days of Noah when violence and immorality covered the earth. The shocker is for most that America is falling so fast. The world hates us and world leaders have had just about enough of this administration. Breaking off relationship with Israel and dividing her land will bring catastrophic consequences according to the bible and walking away from God will bring doom.

As the world mocks and laughs, biblical prophecies are being fulfilled right before our eyes. This world including America is descending into chaos. While the Christian minority prepares for the soon return of Messiah JESUS Christ and His thousand year reign upon the earth; the world will be totally taken by surprise.

Without realizing it, A couple of days ago I had to strong impression to read the book of Esther so I did and it perked up in my memory of the story of how Mordecai persuaded Esther who had found favor with King Ahasuerus to save the Jewish people from extinction, from the evil Haman, who the king had promoted to be to be over all his princes and become a second in command. Haman wanted to kill all the Jews and wipe them off the face of the earth. You can read the story in Esther.

What I didn’t know was the Jewish holiday of Purim is TODAY and had no idea that it is a celebration of Esther’s and Mordecai’s victory of saving their people from the Persians the (modern-day Iran).

Today on Purim the Surpreme leader of Iran felt grievously ill with his major organs shutting down and he will surely die. This opens up Daniel 11:2 and the Daniel 8 prophecies. Three have already emerged and now this fourth new leader from Persia will be the one who becomes very rich (from oil?) and will arouse the whole empire against Greece (which is modern day Turkey) as he takes over the Middle East Islamic Nations.

Turkey will eventually defeat them with the antichrist in Command and set up His End Time Rule; therefore fulfilling prophecy of the Ram (which is Iran) and the Goat (which is Turkey). We could very well see the fulfillment of these prophecies in our lifetime. Keep your eyes on Iran and watch what happens, (War?)

Revelation says the “The New Jerusalem” will come down from heaven as a bride adorned for her husband. It is 1500 miles wide X 1500 miles in length X 1500 miles high and that’s just the city that comes down out of heaven and sits on the New Earth. It has many mansions and every kind of precious jewel make up the foundation. There are 12 gates and each gate is one solid pearl. The streets are pure gold and a river of life runs out from the throne of God. There is no need for light there as God is so bright He is the light. Everyone will finally see God’s face there and the Lamb who was slain Jesus Christ. Millions of Angels will also be there with all those who came to believe Jesus is God’s Son.
The New Jerusalem is so beautiful we humans can’t even comprehend it with our minds. Can you imagine how gigantic the New Earth has to be for a city 1500 miles X 1500 miles X 1500 miles high has to be for the New Jerusalem to sit on top of it? Everyone will live with God and Jesus on the new earth and have a “Place” there with access to the New Jerusalem where we can go in and out. We will never die and live forever and ever in this restored Garden of Eden in the New Earth. There will be plenty to do as we will even judge Angels. Time will be no more and there won’t be a concept of time like we have now. This earth will eventually be burned up and there will also be new heavens. No sin or sickness or sadness or pain will exist there for we will all be redeemed and holy. Nothing in this present world is worth missing heaven and eternal bliss. No pain, whether mental or physical in this life will even compare to the glory of the new heaven and new earth.
Everything will be worth it beyond our comprehension. This current earth is not our home the bible says, we are but pilgrims on our way to glory because of Jesus and Him alone. We deserve death in hell, but God’s great gift, (and it is a gift) and love for us by sending His Son means we can live in this wonderful place beyond the stars. Make sure you never forget this…..Our family and friends who believed in Jesus as the Son of God are waiting there for us. Jesus said ” I go to prepare a “place” for you, for where I am, there you will be also”. Don’t miss it….
