Heaven Will Be Undivided

August 2, 2020

It is important to see things through the eyes of God, which can totally be found in the scripture if we read it for ourselves and ask His help to understand it.  Everything happening today was foretold by God.  Thousands of years in advance.  Because “ He knows the end from the beginning.”  He dwells outside of time.  That’s why it is so foolish for man to seek “mediums” and horoscopes and such to find “wisdom”  when God is Wisdom Himself.  He made everything and knows what it’s purpose is, and when it will come to an end.

The beauty is – that He has offered us through accepting what Jesus Christ did on the cross and accepting Him as our Lord – we are offered the promise of living in His kingdom – forever – where there are no more tears, pain, sorrow…..heaven.  And in the here and now – we will never be alone.  He will never leave us or forsake us.  We have good promises to stand on.  Having faith is believing what He said – no matter what you see.

God will protect us in this crazy time or take us home to His house at our appointed time.

As for where we are now…..it’s all in the Book.  Don’t be afraid to look.  

God will arise to judge the earth – but if we are in Him, in Christ – it will be okay for us.

Here is an interesting scripture about God “shaking” the earth.  For us – it is so our reliance will be on Him.  But for the world and the enemy of humanity, the devil, Satan.  He gets his way for only a moment in time – and people decide who their allegiance will be to.  Then for Satan and all those that have chosen to follow his ways……it will end…..and not well.  Choose life.  God rules heaven and earth and yes, we will have to live by His ways…..because a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.  And heaven is undivided.  

Isaiah 2:17-22

 

The arrogance of man will be brought low

and human pride humbled;

the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,

and the idols will totally disappear.

 

People will flee to caves in the rocks

and to holes in the ground

from the fearful presence of the Lord

and the splendor of his majesty,

when he rises to shake the earth.

 

In that day people will throw away

to the moles and bats

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

May 29, 2020

Did you know…..King Solomon – the wisest man that lived, wrote the entire book of Proverbs and was chosen to build the temple of God.  Did you know that he fell away from God and worshipped idols at the end of his life?  I don’t think I have ever heard a sermon on it, though I had read it in the Bible.  And still, it shocks me today.  Here is the account in 1 Kings.

1 Kings 11:4-10   For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David.  For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom[b] the abomination of the Ammonites.  Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and did not fully follow the Lord, as did his father David.  Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, on the hill that is east of Jerusalem, and for Molech the abomination of the people of Ammon.  And he did likewise for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and sacrificed to their gods.

 So the Lord became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the Lord God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice,  and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he did not keep what the Lord had commanded.

So the reason I bring this up is because of the following scripture below concerning the falling away

2 Thessalonians 2:3,4    Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,  who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

At end of his life, after such a life of glory – he fell away from God.  Soloman!!   How could this be?   It is actually quite simple.  He did not obey God in everything and ignored God’s warnings and command.   

1 Kings 11  “But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites— from the nations of whom the Lord had said to the children of Israel, “You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods.” Solomon clung to these in love.

It is often that we do the same things.  Cling to the very things God has asked us to let go.  We stay in the “worldly mindset” and don’t renew our minds and lives to the Word of God and God’s ways.  It may not matter for a long, long time – but look at the end results.  

This should be a warning, especially in this hour to listen and obey God’s directives.  Lest we think, like Soloman, and dismiss some of  God’s commands and end up snared and trapped.  Apart from God we can do nothing…

I know it’s a lot to think about.  But we are living in the last days and things can’t be taken for granted.  We need to live under the shadow of the Most High (Psalm 91)  where our good Father just wants to protect us and keep us safe.  

Lord show us any area we have been ignoring and blowing you off.  Keep us safe in the shadow of Your wings and protect us in the hour.  Amen

Are Aliens Found In Scripture?  Alien aircraft?  Check out What the Bible actually says……   you need to know NOW…..

It is a question that few will tackle.  But rest assured that God has given answers to all we need to know in scripture.

We are shown in scripture that there are several types of “beings” that God has created besides man.  We, mankind, are described as being in the very image of God,  (Genesis 1:27

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.)  And that if we become born again through Jesus Christ, that we are forever the children of God.  And by default those that reject Christ are described as: (John 8:44   ”  You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do.)

When we die as believers in Christ, we are absent from our bodies, but our spirit/soul is present with the Lord.  ( 2 Corinthians 5:8   “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”)

We know that heaven is a real place.  We have also been told that there are creatures around the throne of God singing “holy, holy, holy.”  and eyes all around them.  (Revelation 4:8    The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”)

  We know too that there are holy angels that serve God and that there are fallen angels, precisely 1/3 of the angels that rebelled against God and followed the fallen angel Lucifer, whom we now call Satan.

There is a whole unseen world that God has chosen to keep our eyes veiled to.(1 Corinthians 13:12  “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.)  Occasionally the Holy Spirit chooses to open someones eyes to see into that realm.  (discerning of spirits – 1 Corinthians 12:10)  God’s angels that serve Him, fallen angels, demonic spirits that serve Satan.  It is a fascinating study and things are not hidden in scripture as we see that Jesus cast out demons from the demoniac at Gaderenes. ( Luke 8:30

“Jesus asked him, saying, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him.”)

There are many other scriptures where we see good angels sent from God with messages.  Like Gabriel sent to Mary the mother of Jesus to tell her the good news that she had been chosen to carry God’s son.

What about these angels?   We know there are Good angels that obey God, and bad angels that follow Satan in doing all kinds of evil.

How do we tell the difference?  That is the tricky part.  God instructs us : (1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.)

I want to show you a few scriptures that seem clearly to indicate that those “posing” as aliens are actually deceivers and working for Satan.

Did you know that when Jesus was asked by His disciples about the signs of the end of the age – His biggest concern was – yep –  Deception.  So how could we be deceived by these dark angels?  Number one reason is that we do not know the TRUTH.  God gives us everything we need to recognize the plans of the evil one.  So Ignorance of God’s word is our greatest weakness.

Did you know that Jesus said the Satan and false apostles can appear as angels of light?  :  

(2 Corinthians 11:13-15     For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.  And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.)

Get that – Satan and fallen angels can take  the form of “religious, good, people, or even claim to be aliens from another planet or in touch with them.”   When you read what the end time false prophets and anti-christ can do – it may shock you.  Here is the scripture:   (Matthew 24:23-24      “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.  See, I have told you beforehand.)

The sad part there is that He says that “even the elect”  that is believers…..could possibly be deceived.  

That is why we must know our scriptures.  

I suggest that you read Revelation chapter 13, all of it  but here is part of it: 11-17 ….    (Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 1And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.  And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.  He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.  He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,  and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.)

There is so much more and I hope you will continue to study.

My main purpose is that if these things begin to show up and claim to be from another planet and are here for our benefit.  Remember that Satan is the “father of lies” and called a “Deceiver”.  He hates God and he hates God’s created ones.  He wants total control.   Now I’m not saying that people are walking around that are fallen angels – but we know that people can be influenced and straight out possessed and used by these wicked spirits, and we need to be wise.   (Hebrews 13:1 talks about how they can take human form).   

Satan will come in this final hour as an Angel of light.  Seeming to have power, good answers for mankind, and with good intentions.  But after 3 1/2 years – anti-christ will seem to have a fatal wound –  and become the first human to be completely possessed by Lucifer AND he will demand that every human worship him and take his mark .   If a person does this and renounces Christ – he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

I know this is long and most of you already know this.  But I see so many scriptures being fulfilled right now.  (read Matthew 24).  I care about you and want you to be ready to NOT be deceived.  The key is…..now,   “Call on the name of the Lord,  (Jesus) and you will be saved”  Just call out to Him  “Lord save me, I am yours and accept all you have done to rescue me and prepare a place of goodness in heaven with you for eternity.  Thank you for taking the judgement that belonged to me as you hung on the cross.  Help me to know you as My Lord and keep me from the evil one and from decepton.”  Amen

REMEMBER AGAIN   ALIEN =  Fallen Angels  Don’t be fooled.

AS a side note – we know that angels in the Bible have been known to have “vehicles”  that go in and out of our dimension.  For example a “chariot of fire”  came down and took Elijah to heaven.   (2 Kings 2:11

Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.)

So if God’s good angels came to get Elijah in a chariot of fire.  What makes us think that the angels that rebelled and followed Satan wouldn’t know how to make and operate these vehicles too?

Don’t be fooled by these vehicles.  There may be lots of “unusual things”  as this age comes to an end and readies for the second coming of Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of lords!!!!   Stick with God’s Word.  And always ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth.  He was sent specifically to be our “Helper, and Comforter”   Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

Blessings in Jesus Christ and How Awesome we are alive so close to HIs return!!!!  Be encouraged and Be Wise Students of His Word.

Maybe God allowed the churches to be shut – so that we could become “hot” in our private/personal relationships with Jesus. It is NOT good to be lukewarm. Many think they are not – but they are thinking about man’s definition of hot. God describes it as this…”they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of THEIR testimony for they loved not their lives even unto death” Rev. 2/3 America has been lukewarm for the most part. All of us can become “hotter” unashamed of our relationship with Jesus Christ. Caring less about what people think of us and more about pleasing the only One that is worthy of that kind of devotion. Can I get an Amen!

Revelation 3:15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

END TIMES BIBLE TIDBIT

Do you know what the four horsemen of the apocalypse are? Hollywood has made them to be many things and actually clouded the true meaning in scripture.

In a nutshell in the Book of Revelation, Jesus begins to open the seven seals of the scroll that only He is worthy to open. The first four are horse and riders released on the earth.

1. White Horse – A conquerer
2. Red Horse – Takes peace from the earth
3. Black Horse – Scarcity, skyrocketing prices
4. Pale Horse – Death of 1/4 of the earth

Further Study From Revelation chapter 6…..

Revelation 6 (Angel to the Apostle John )“Come and see.” 2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

WHITE HORSE- A CONQUERER

” 4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.

2. RED HORSE- TAKES PEACE FROM THE EARTH

5 So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”

3. BLACK HORSE-SCARCITY – SKYROCKETING PRICES

8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And [power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.

4. PALE HORSE-DEATH OVER 1/4 OF THE EARTH

Now you know – good news is Jesus will never leave us or forsake us. If you do not know Him – call out. He has been waiting for you! We can dwell in the secret place of the most High (Psalm 91) These things come to purify. Jesus comes for a Bride without spot and wrinkle. Like Noah was kept safely in the Ark while judgement fell – we can believe for this too. We are not appointed unto wrath. When this short period of time ends – He returns and sets up His kingdom. No more Satan/ evil, no more tears, no more sorrow or pain, He is bringing His reward with Him as we lean on Him and stay faithful. We will be caught up if we are still here and changed in the twinkling of an eye. Our soul/who we are remains but we get new uncorruptable bodies. The Prince Of Peace will be reigning in His kingdom and we get to be a part of it!

Look up, look up, look up I say
Jesus instructions for those living in this day
Don’t look at the storms, don’t look at the waves
Keep your eyes on heaven, bad things will pass away

Do not mourn at the doom or cry at the gloom
Know that a childbirth is coming very soon
The earth groans and travails, the Word has said
Until the sons of God have been revealed

Great things can happen in the midst of it all
Many will come forth, though many shall fall
Purified by fire, refined like gold
Takes place at the ending, just like we were told

Hang on to Jesus, draw ever near
No need to doubt, and no need to fear
Feast on His promises so you can endure
Our faith will be challenged, but come forth so pure

And we must remember to keep heaven in sight
He’s prepared a place for us which comes after the night
In the darkest hour, never forget
Jesus is waiting, your place He has set

We are His bride, a wedding feast to come
We’ll be wearing white garments, see God on His throne
No more corruption, no more tears,
No more pain or long difficult years

We will all celebrate, like never before
Our Father is waiting, He has so much more
Remember “Look up”, there’s more on the way
That will help us endure these present crazy days.

Sackcloth and Ashes

February 21, 2014

America, America

How we need to sit

In sack cloth and ashes

Uncovering our sin

 

Sins of us all

From great to small

It matters to God

How our country did fall

 

Whether by silence

Or outright by sin

We’re in this together

Repentance can mend

 

Have we forgotten

What our forefathers bore

The wounds and the scars

So freedom could soar

 

And where are the churches

Calling it sin

Demanding an account

For deeds done within

 

Lawlessness reigns

Because we’ve sat back

Refusing to engage

Be on the attack

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

December 29, 2018

As I was re-reading the Book of 2 Thessalonians this morning, I wondered and began to pray, “Lord, have I said enough? If we get cut off electronically or otherwise, has everyone in my sphere of life heard the truth about You, the second coming, and the necessary warnings about the anti-christ and the beast system that You Lord have not hidden, because it is written in Your Book. (Bible). Are people even reading the Bible? (I know many of you are) Do they know the consequences and danger they may be in by not knowing the truth?

Jesus greatest concern about the people alive at the end of the age was “deception”. (Matthew 24) He even wondered if He would find faith on earth when He returned. Do people know there will be a great falling away? (from the true faith) even some that called themselves Christians and may have even preached well for decades…..that even these could be fooled? You can’t “fall away” from something you have not been a part of.

2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 “ Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day (Day of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

We automatically think that this means a temple in Jerusalem and maybe so…..but the Bible also says that WE are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Does God consider our human bodies a temple? (1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”)

We know that Satan will completely possess the man of perdition aka anti-christ after he “recovers” from a mortal wound. (Revelation 13:3)

2 Thessalonians 2:9,10 “ The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

He may come with the false prophet saying: “We are together” (one world religion) , “We are loved” (tolerance without holiness) , “I am God” (new age already teaches this)

I guess what I’m encouraging all of us to do is to prayerfully study the scriptures more. NOT read someones interpretation of it – although that’s okay if you understand that people can make a mistake. But each one of us needs to read for ourselves, hear and know the Word of God and how to be led by the Holy Spirit. individually. (John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, I know them and they follow Me”)

One of our greatest treasures is the written Word of God. It anchors us, protects us, helps us to know the true and living God. Then as we prayerfully follow God, I pray for us all that we will navigate this intense time of deception and do it well. Only Light can shine in the darkness and dispel it.

TREASURE YOUR BIBLE AND KNOW IT WELL even if you don’t understand all you read – read it anyway and ask God for understanding.

Praying it will be a blessed 2019

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

October 13, 2016

I want to bring out a word of caution about this subject. I am seeing such an uptick in the amount of Christians that are turning on other Christians. Let it not be so among us! Be alert to this trick of Satan and do not partake!

Mark 13:12-13  “Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

Ephesians 4:31  “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.”

Now I am not saying to ignore gross errors in doctrine or lawlessness and ungodly living. I’m not talking about that. But I am talking about picking on your brothers and sisters in Christ that believe a little different than you. Maybe you don’t eat meat…..others do. Is that a reason to break fellowship? NO!

One of the other things I see coming on the scene is a dangerous return to the law. Just because people have abused the grace of God, we must not be tempted to go back to the jewish laws. I have even heard some saying that if you call Jesus anything but Yeshua (His name in Hebrew) that He won’t listen. They also come with a spirit of superiority by flashing words in Hebrew to sound “knowledgable”. Knowledge is great, but without humility, it can turn into something ugly.

1 Corinthians 1-3 “….Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.  And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.  But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.”

Now I study Hebrew too and know quite a few words, I’ve also been to Israel and was blessed by it …..but that does not make me any better or elevate me above my brethren. NO! Ephesians 4:32 tells us how we should treat our brothers and sisters in Christ:

“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Kind, tenderhearted and forgiving! Which is a far cry from what is out there. I understand there is a HUGE course correction needed in the body of Christ. There is a great number of lukewarm christians that will be spewed out of Jesus mouth. Revelation 3:16
“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”

So there is correction needed. But remember Paul said to speak the truth in love.

Ephesians 4:15 “…..but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

We, as true believers in Jesus Christ, are a Body! We must look with the others best interest at heart. With lots of love!! Everyone of us who are believers are going through hard times now. We need a lot more love!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “ Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
LOVE NEVER FAILS.

I pray you have an awesome day and know that you are deeply loved by your Creator and you Savior Jesus Christ!
