Grieving Orca Carries Dead Baby for 7th Day

GRIEVING ORCA CARRIES DEAD BABY FOR 7TH DAY

An orca whale, who lost her newborn calf near Vancouver Island, has been carrying her dead baby across the sea for seven days.

Researchers from the Center for Whale Research were tracking the mother whale at the time of her calf’s death, and they have observed the grieving whale carrying her dead calf for the seventh day, Tuesday, July 31, 2018.

Researchers watched as the dead baby began to sink, but was repeatedly retrieved by the grieving mother, who supported it on her forehead and pushed it through choppy water.

God gave humans, whom He created in His own image, greater emotions than those of any of the animals He created; yet the world has become so depraved that people give no thought of killing their unborn children by the millions (an estimated 58 million in the US from 1973 to 2017 https://rtl.org/prolife_issues/abortionstats_us.html), some born alive and left to die in clinics, or killed by murderous abortionists in the most heinous ways imaginable!

The Word of God tells us,

“Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16.

In other words, if you do the sinful, deadly works of satan, you are a servant of satan, whether you realize it, or not.

God gives life at conception. Even a “spark” of God’s Spirit manifests at the moment of conception:

SPARK OF LIFE.png

SPARK OF LIFE 2.png

Scientists want to reference that spark to “zinc,” and they can call it whatever they like, to declassify it from the manifest power of God, just as they have labeled unborn babies by a technical word, “fetus,” sounding nonhuman, rather than “unborn babies,” which is EXACTLY what they are!

The nation is divided; 48 percent supporting our pro-life President Donald Trump; and apparently somewhere in the neighborhood of 52 percent who support the killing of unborn babies, because the mainstay of the Democratic Party is the killing of unborn babies, some born alive. They are evil, unconscionable, self-indulgent people, who are without natural affection. If pro-abortionists could take the place of an unborn baby, whose mother is just getting ready to let the abortionist chop them to pieces – alive! – then they would have an immediate change of mind. Of course, they are not the unborn babies experiencing such pain and horror, so they could care less! These are without a conscience, or headed quickly in that direction.

The Word of God says concerning the last days:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come, FOR MEN SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWNS SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, UNHOLY, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION, truce-breakers, false accusers, INCONTINENT, FIERCE, DESPISERS OF THOSE THAT ARE GOOD” 2 Timothy 3:1-3 (EMPHASIS ADDED)

Does the description remind you of anyone? During President Trump’s presidential campaign, and to this very day, who are the ones ready to fight and attack Trump supporters and vandalize their property? Liberal-Progressive-Socialist-Marxist-Communist-DEMOCRATS.

Barack Obama refused to sign bills to legalize saving the lives of aborted babies born alive, not once, not twice, but three times. His underlying statement, by refusing to sign such bills, is, “Let them suffer and die, no one will be allowed by law to save their lives!” Hillary was the same! These are without conscience.

If you are a Democrat and still want to call yourself a Christian, go right ahead and live in your delusion. You will, nevertheless, receive a very rude awakening on Judgment Day. You will discover that God hates the killing of unborn babies, and people who support those who do are just as guilty!

Jesus said,

“I say to you, that except your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 5:20

The scribes and Pharisees were the religious rulers of that day.

Jesus said to the scribes and Pharisees:

“You serpents (snakes), you generation of vipers (venomous snakes), HOW CAN YOU ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL?” Matthew 23:33 (EMPHASIS ADDED)

Why did Jesus call the religious leaders of His day snakes, vipers? Because they feigned godliness and they held themselves out to be holy men of God, but they didn’t recognize the righteous One, their Messiah who had come to save them from their sins, nor did they agree with His righteous commandments, as when He drove the money changers out of the temple with a whip!

Jesus said,

“Make not My Father’s house a house of merchandise” John 2:16.

That news would be a shock to many “Christians” today: Jesus using a whip to run people out of God’s house? They are the multitudes who only know how to say, “Jesus is love, Jesus is love, Jesus is love.” Yes, Jesus is love, He is the epitome of love; but He is also the epitome of hate – for sin (Revelation 2:15), and that is exactly why He created hell.

I have to tell you, as much as I hate some sins, I don’t believe I could cast anyone into the flames of hell – forever. I would probably buckle from the screams after a day, or two. Not our God, He will not only cast them into that place, but since they refused to accept His excruciatingly painful sacrifice for our sins, He will cast them into that place – and leave them there forever! That is true hate.

A lot of people are going to be quite shocked on Judgment Day, who have not even read God’s Holy Word, nor do they know Him (Matthew 25).

God made hell for satan and his fallen angels, who forsook the Lord, but the Word of God says He will also cast all those whose names are not written in the Book of Life into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:12-15).

Jesus, Himself, said,

“Do not fear those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” Matthew 10:28.

I had a vision of hell in May 2017, and the entrance of hell is actually a mouth, like a human’s mouth, which opens and closes as bodies are cast into that fiery place. I drew an image of what I saw:

MOUTH OF HELL

Those who want to escape that place need to not only confess the name of Jesus as their Savior, but also obey His commandments and follow His example.

Jesus said,

“Therefore, by their fruits you will know them. Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father” Matthew 7:20-21.

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior; unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate (having a seared conscience 1 Timothy 4:1-2; Romans 1:21-32). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.

Traditions of Men

TRADITIONS

TRADITIONS OF MEN

Throughout history, since ancient times, men have suffered a major problem receiving direction and instruction from God, which leads to an intimate relationship and receiving divine revelations from Him. There is a powerful resistance within man to God, by way of following the traditions of men.

How can we know this?

There is, figuratively speaking, a church on every corner in cities throughout America, and most of them basically use the same Bible, but most of them teach a different doctrine; that’s how we know this is true.

God brought this message to me very clearly this morning, as I was reading a passage of scripture in Hebrew. Being just an elementary student of the Hebrew text, I was only able to understand three Words of that particular Hebrew scripture, “Bethlehem Ephratah,” “Judah,” and “Israel.” I felt certain, from these Words, that I knew which scripture it was, but I couldn’t remember where exactly it was located in the English Bible, so I entered “Bethlehem Ephratah” into my concordance to find the location.

I came to only three matches, one in Ruth 4:11, one in 1 Chronicles 4:4, and the last in Micah 5:2. Knowing this scripture about “Bethlehem Ephratah (and) Judah” was prophetic about where our Messiah would be born, I knew right away it would be in Micah 5:2:

“You, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall He come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting” Micah 5:2 (emphasis added).

After finding the scripture I was looking for, I became curious about what the Book of Ruth had to say about “Bethlehem Ephratah,” because I couldn’t remember what was said about the city in that book.

I checked the scripture in Ruth 4:11, and I sat there and cried because of the revelation I received from the Lord.

The passage brought me to the part in the story of Ruth, when Boaz sat down at the gate of the city to redeem her and her mother-in-law, Naomi, after Ruth prepared herself and went and lay at his feet, under his mantle, on the threshing floor. When he awoke to find her there, Boaz determined he would marry her. Before he could do that, he had to settle the matter of Naomi’s dead husband’s property, because according to the laws of Israel, the one who redeemed his property had the right to marry Ruth first; Boaz was only second in line to redeem the property and marry Ruth.

Boaz went and sat down at the gate of the city, which was customary to conduct business and settle such matters, and he waited for the “first in line” (to redeem Ruth) to walk by, and he called him, along with ten other elders in the city (to be witnesses), to sit by him at the gate. They all came and sat with Boaz. He explained to the “first in line” that Elimelech’s property needed to be redeemed for the sake of Naomi and Ruth. The “first in line” declined, saying he couldn’t redeem the property and marry Ruth.

“Boaz said to the elders and to all the people, You are witnesses this day, that I have purchased all that was Elimelech’s (Naomi’s dead husband) and all that was Chilion’s (Naomi’s dead son) and Mahlon’s (Naomi’s other dead son, the former husband of Ruth) of the hand of Naomi (in her behalf)” Ruth 4:9.

What intrigued me greatly, as I continued to read, was the following prophecy included in the Book of Ruth about our Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua, because having been raised in the church since the age of one, I had never heard a message about this profound prophecy, neither had it ever caught my attention before during my studies in God’s Word:

“All the people that were at the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The Lord make the woman (Ruth) that has come into your house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel, and do worthily in Ephratah and be famous in Bethlehem” Ruth 4:11.

These elders of Israel, in Bethlehem Ephratah, had no idea at the time that they were prophesying a magnificent prophecy about the coming Messiah, just as Micah did, when he prophesied about the birthplace of Messiah:

“You, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall He come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting” Micah 5:2.

It is basically the same in the Hebrew Tanakh (only slight changes in translation): 

וְאַתָּ֞ה בֵּֽית־לֶ֣חֶם אֶפְרָ֗תָה צָעִיר֙ לִֽהְיוֹת֙ בְּאַלְפֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֔ה מִמְּךָ֙ לִ֣י יֵצֵ֔א לִֽהְי֥וֹת מוֹשֵׁ֖ל בְּיִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל וּמוֹצָֽאֹתָ֥יו מִקֶּ֖דֶם מִימֵ֥י עוֹלָֽם: (Michah)

Any reasonable Jew should know that this is a prophecy about the coming Messiah. The rest of the entire chapter speaks of His “giving up” Israel, until she “travails, then the remnant of His brethren shall return unto the children of Israel” (Micah 5:3), speaking of the Holocaust and return of the Jews to Israel; and further explains how He will “be the peace” of Israel (Micah 5:5), and deliver Israel from the Assyrian (Micah 5:6), and the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people (Micah 5:7), and the remnant of Jacob shall be among Gentiles (Micah 5:8), and His hand will be lifted up against Israel’s adversaries and their enemies shall be cut off (Micah 5:9)…and the Lord will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard (Micah 5:15), prophecies soon to be fulfilled.

Jesus, Yeshua, came out of the lineage of Boaz and Ruth, as the genealogy written in the Book of Matthew demonstrates:

“And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab, and Booz begat Obed of Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse” Matthew 1:5.

The genealogy continues…

“And Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus (Yeshua), who is called Christ” Matthew 1:16.

Consider also this miraculous fact:

“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David until the carrying away (of Jews) into Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the carrying into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations” Matthew 1:17. *Jews are very concerned with numbers, as they pertain to the Word of God.

Consider something even more profound, at least it was to me when I saw it; the prophecy that the elders in Bethlehem spoke at the gate, when Boaz announced his marriage to Ruth:

“All the people that were at the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The Lord make the woman (Ruth) that has come into your house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel, and do worthily in Ephratah and be famous in Bethlehem” Ruth 4:11 (emphasis added).

Right after that prophecy in Ruth 4:11, in the next verse Ruth 4:12, they spoke prophetically of another couple that would be included in the genealogy of Christ:

“And let your house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the Lord shall give you of this woman” Ruth 4:12.

It is basically the same in the Hebrew Tanakh (only slight changes in translation): 

וִיהִ֤י בֵֽיתְךָ֙ כְּבֵ֣ית פֶּ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁר־יָֽלְדָ֥ה תָמָ֖ר לִֽיהוּדָ֑ה מִן־הַזֶּ֗רַע אֲשֶׁ֨ר יִתֵּ֤ן יְהֹוָה֙ לְךָ֔ מִן־הַֽנַּֽעֲרָ֖ה הַזֹּֽאת: (Rut)

Notice that near the start of the genealogy given by Matthew (Matthew 1:3), the same couple is included in the genealogy of Christ, that were spoken of in the Book of Ruth:

“And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar (same as Tamar), and Phares begat Esrom, and Esrom begat Aram” Matthew 1:3.

A reasonable Jew would consider all of these prophetic facts, especially since they start in the Tanakh and conclude in the New Testament about the Messiah, Jesus, Yeshua, and know beyond any doubt that He fulfilled these prophecies, and so many more: Zechariah 12:10, about the Messiah being “pierced,” as detailed in Matthew 27:35, fulfilling also the prophecy of David in Psalm 22:18; and Ezekiel 44:1-2, about how Messiah will enter the east gate and it will be shut until that time, and it remains shut today; and Zechariah 9:9, about how Jerusalem’s King will come to her, “having salvation, lowly, and riding upon an ass, upon the colt of an ass,” which was fulfilled by Yeshua, as detailed in Matthew 21:5; and Isaiah 7:14, about how the Lord will give a sign to Israel that a “virgin would conceive and bear a son and shall call Him Immanuel (Immanu El – God with us),” which was fulfilled and detailed in Matthew 1:18-23.

The fulfillment of these prophecies is mathematically phenomenal; the odds of the fulfillment of these prophecies, and many more I have not included here, being profoundly improbable.

A Jew cannot be certain, unless he researches for himself, that he follows the traditions of men, or the truth of God’s Holy Word. He can never know, unless he studies and reasons for himself, whether he only believes what men have handed down from generation to generation, or what the real truth is.

When people follow the traditions of men, if somewhere throughout the generations just one generation of men got it wrong, then all of the generations after them will also have it wrong.

Nevertheless, God made a promise to everyone:

“And you shall seek Me (God) and find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart” Jeremiah 29:13 (emphasis added).

I challenge every Jew to confirm what the forefathers have told them, through sincere prayer unto God and by searching the Tanakh and studying the New Testament in the Orthodox Jewish Bible. You will never know for sure, unless you ask God yourself.

In fact, because there are churches and synagogues all over the world, with so many different doctrines it baffles the imagination, I challenge everyone, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Christians… reading this, to do your own research, while sincerely praying to God for the divine, unadulterated, TRUTH.

God will answer that prayer if you meet only one qualification: if you love the Lord with all of your heart, soul and mind (meaning you also obey Him) Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew 22:37.

When we stand before God on Judgment Day, we will stand alone to give an account. We will not be able to blame anything we believe, or anything we have done, on the rabbi, the teacher, the preacher, our mother, or father; we will all answer to Him alone. Should we not, therefore, pray and study the Word of God for ourselves, to receive God’s divine revelation?

The Word of God tells us,

“I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire; this is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:12-15.

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus, Yeshua, as their Lord and Savior; unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate (Romans 1:21-32). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.

Strange Fire

2/13/18

FIRE

Strange Fire

Nadab and Abihu were the sons of Aaron, elected by God, according to their lineage, to be among the Royal Priesthood. They were fully qualified, ordained priests unto God and served in the Temple of God. One day, Nadab and Abihu got it into their pompous thinking that they could bring an offering before God, which was not ordained of God. The priests, appointed by God, starting with Aaron the High Priest, all the way down to the priests who attended the doors of the Temple of God, were given specific duties outlined by God Himself, starting with their responsibility to cleanse themselves at the laver (indicative of New Testament sanctification), to what types of garments to wear, what specific offerings to make upon the brazen altar, and so forth.

The Word of God tells us,

“Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in them and put incense on them and offered strange fire before the Lord, which He did not command them to do; and there went out fire from the Lord and devoured them and they died before the Lord” Leviticus 10:1-2 (emphasis added).

This is an aspect of God’s character that many people do not recognize. They want to talk about the love of God anytime, but when it comes to the Lord’s commandments and His requirement that we obey them, or face the consequences, people want to deny that characteristic of God.

Deny it all they may, God is to be feared. Old Testament and New Testament scriptures instruct us to fear God.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all they who do His commandments; His praise endures forever” Psalm 111:10.

Jesus said,

“Fear not those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” Matthew 10:28.

This New Testament scripture is something many people who claim to be Christians work very hard at camouflaging and twisting, because they don’t want to believe in hell. They will even strike new meaning to what Christ said specifically about the body and soul being tormented in hell (because of sin), rather than believe in the Words of Jesus, which they feel are too negative to be true. Seventh-Day Adventists and “Jehovah’s” Witnesses do not believe in a literal hell, for example.

A “Jehovah’s” Witness said to me once, “God wouldn’t send anyone to hell; He wouldn’t do something like that.” 

We need to remember this; anyone who twists the Word of God to conform to their own way of thinking is in grave danger, according to the Word of God.

Jesus said to John the Revelator:

“I testify unto every man who hears the Words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book; and if any man shall take away from the Words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life and out of the holy city and from the things which are written in this book” Revelation 22:18-19.

In the same book, Revelation, Jesus told John:

“I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them, and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death (eternal death in the lake of fire). And whoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:12-15.

Now given the warning in Revelation 22:18-19, about being removed out of the Book of Life, if anyone takes away from the things written in “this book” (the Book of Revelation), I believe it is a mighty fearful thing not to believe in hell and the lake of fire, or to try to remove that truth from the book!

Jeremiah also prophesied a warning to those who create their own path to walk in, their own way to pleasing God:

“Because my people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to vanity and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up…I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity” Jeremiah 18:15, 17.

Some might say Nadab and Abihu’s strange fire relates only to Old Testament law, not the dispensation of grace. The following reveals some truth about God’s wrath in the New Testament and is a warning not to trifle with God, not to deal deceitfully concerning the things of God, or worse, lie to the Holy Ghost:

“A certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession and kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why has satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and keep back part of the price of the land? While it remained, was it not your own? After it was sold, was it not in your own power? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied unto men, but to God. Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and gave up the ghost (died on the spot), and great fear came on all those who heard these things. The young men arose, wound him up, carried him out and buried him. It was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what happened, came in. Peter asked her, Tell me whether you sold the land for so much? She said, Yes, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that you agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door and shall carry you out. She then fell down immediately at his feet and yielded up the ghost; and the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. Great fear came upon all the church, as many as heard these things” Acts 5:1-11.

The deaths of these two, Ananias and Sapphira, weren’t about money, or giving to the church. It was all about lying to God, and the consequences for doing such a thing. Ananias and Sapphira made a commitment to sell some property and donate all of the proceeds to God. Obviously, through the Spirit of discernment, or by revelation, Peter knew they decided to withhold part of the money they received for the property. Instead of modifying their pledge, which would have at least been the honest thing to do, they decided to lie about how much they received for the property, as if they were still donating the whole amount they received to God. They apparently felt so good about themselves, having donated whatever portion of the sale they were giving, they had no concern whatsoever about lying to the man of God about their donation.

God despised their deceitful giving, because it was given in the wrong spirit, in fact, they gave it in a lying spirit, which is evil. The Word of God tells us that there are six, actually seven things God hates, and one of those seven things is “a lying tongue” (Proverbs 6:16-19).

The ways of Nadab and Abihu and Ananias and Sapphira remind me of another passage of scripture:

“There is a way which seems right to a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” Proverbs 14:12.

People have a lot of “wonderful” ideas about God, about what He likes and what He dislikes, about what He wants and what He doesn’t want, about what they think His Word says and about what they think His Word doesn’t say. This is evident by the fact that there are dozens of churches in many cities throughout the world, but they all teach a different doctrine.

There are only two eternal destinies in place: heaven, for those who know truth and obey it; and hell, for those who think they know truth, but talked themselves into believing fables (2 Timothy 4:1-4).

No prophecy is of private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). In other words, no one scripture stands alone; it must be compared and measured against other scriptures. We are instructed to “rightly divide” the Word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). This means we have to know the whole Word, before we can rightly divide it, or measure its interpretation by other passages of scripture. Often, when you read a passage of scripture and you don’t understand it right away, the scripture will interpret itself, as you keep reading. Nevertheless, the same passage of scripture may have a different meaning if you isolate it from the rest of the Word. It is always critical to pray with a pure heart before God for the divine interpretation of His Word, and He promised to answer that prayer, when we seek Him with all of our hearts (Jeremiah 29:13).

Paul was called by God to be an evangelist and overseer of the Church of God. Before he set out on his ministry, he went to Arabia to hear the Words of Jesus Christ himself; he did not study under men. After all, men can twist the Word of God around horribly. Paul said to the brethren in Galatia,

“I certify to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not after man, for I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by revelation of Jesus Christ…When it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me by His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood, neither did I go up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me, but I went to Arabia and returned again to Damascus. Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter and abode with him fifteen days. I saw no other apostle, except James, the Lord’s brother” Galatians 1:11-12, 15-19 (emphasis added).

Paul, who wrote most of the New Testament, did not learn the things of God after the rudiments of men, but he went straight to the Source alone. Before he began ministering, he spent three years receiving revelations from Jesus, not of man.

I have heard some of the most outrageous doctrine from those who have graduated from “Bible” seminaries, because the curriculum is often based on man’s interpretation of the Word, not God’s divine revelation.

If you want real instruction, pray earnestly, and then go before the One and only source of real truth and that is the Lord Himself, “who gives freely and upbraids not” (James 1:5), just as the Apostles and Paul did.

Once you know the Word of God for yourself, then, and only then, you can identify false doctrine when you hear it, perhaps even from your pastor!

Jesus warned not once, not twice, but three times to beware of false teachers, false prophets and false Christs in Matthew 24, especially as we draw nearer to the Lord’s return.

When we stand before God on Judgment Day, pastors and teachers will answer to God for how they presented the Word of God to others. Everyone who heard them will stand alone before God, to answer to Him about why they believed those who lied, instead of reading the Word of God for themselves in order to know the truth.

Our eternal destiny hinges on knowing God’s Holy Word, to the best of our ability, and whether we obeyed it.

Are we offering acceptable sacrifices to God, or strange fire?

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.

False Teachers, False Prophets, Then the Antichrist

SANHEDRIN POPE IMAM

         Rabbis                         Popes                       Imams

FALSE TEACHERS, FALSE PROPHETS, THEN THE ANTICHRIST

I have spiritual dreams about every two or three days, and I had a prophetic dream four days ago that I will share with you.

I dreamed a man of God was singing on a platform in a stadium and suddenly a man stood up in the audience and began singing too, drowning out the man of God on stage.

The dream represents revival in these last days. While the real men of God are on the platform, there will be enough heretics bearing false doctrine “from the bleachers” to drown out the anointed men of God and the message of truth.

Those bearing false doctrine will, and already do, gather the largest crowds, because the hearts of the people aren’t in the right place. They have “itching ears” and seek after “feel good” ministers bearing their own messages with enticing words.

The Word of God tells us,

“Preach the Word; be instant in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and doctrine; for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts they shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, and they shall turn away their ears from truth, and shall be turned unto fables” 2 Timothy 4:2-4.

A local church member told me that some Muslims came into the church, sat down and began to openly challenge the minister and interrupt the church services. The Muslims told the minister that their church wouldn’t last, that Islam will become the global religion.

Pretty bold, aren’t they? Try going to Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, or any Middle Eastern Muslim country, where they decapitate infidels, and walk into a mosque and challenge them, telling them that their religion will fail, disrupt their services and tell them Christianity will become the global religion, and see what happens to you!

At the same time, while most Christians are sleeping, spending hours in front of television, internet, planning their next job move, vacation, etc; Muslim jihadis are invading the great nations of the world by the millions.

While President Trump is trying to get America’s wall built, illegals are converging on our border in record numbers, more than when the stealthy jihadi himself was president!

People really need to wake up, shake themselves and stay very much alert at this hour.

Jesus told us that half of the Christian community would be asleep when He returns (Matthew 25), and He didn’t even include those with false doctrines who call themselves Christians. He was literally referring to “virgin” Christians, the real deal Christians!

Have you considered that three of the four major religions have already ruled in this world? Think about it. The Jews ruled during the time of Christ, bringing Jesus before Pontius Pilate to be crucified, and they martyred many Christians during the time of the early church. The Catholics ruled and martyred multitudes of Christians during the Inquisition. The Ottoman Empire ruled from 1453 through 1924, killing millions of Christians and other minorities during that time, and tens of millions since Muhammad!

Christians have never ruled.

Christians have been massacred by Jews, Muslims and Catholics.

Christians have never murdered Jews, Muslims or Catholics.

Why do you suppose the Christians haven’t ruled the world, killing Jews, Muslims, or Catholics?

One simple reason is that we Christians serve the One and only true living God, and the others serve satan, the killer!

The Word of God says,

“You shall not kill” Exodus 20:13.

“Beloved, do not avenge yourselves (not the same as defending one’s self and family), but rather give place to wrath, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay’ says the Lord” Romans12:19.

This, however, can be said of Jews, Muslims and Catholics throughout history:

“You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abides not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it” John 8:44.

Jews, Muslims and Catholics all bear the spirit of antichrist:

“(Deceptions of the last hour) Little children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour” 1 John 2:18.

Many antichrists have come through these false religions and dictators, such as Adolf Hitler; but one final antichrist will arise to be the last antichrist ruler.

This is a characteristic of his uprising:

“I saw one of his heads (a world ruler) as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed, and all the world marveled and followed the beast (last antichrist)” Revelation 13:3.

Notice John wrote that his head was “as if it had been mortally wounded,” not that it had been killed, but “as if” it had been killed, but the “deadly wound was healed.”

The Ottoman Empire – Islamic Caliphate – ruled a wide area of the Middle East, Southeast Europe, parts of Eastern Europe, Central Europe, the Caucasus, Western Asia, North Africa and the Horn of Africa, for nearly 500 years, but the Islamic Caliphate appeared to have been “mortally wounded” in 1924, only 93 years ago. The last and final antichrist’s deadly wound is “healed!”

The antichrist kingdom is rising all around us, folks. If Christians can’t see that obvious fact, they are spiritually asleep and need a sharp awakening, before it’s too late!

Even agnostics know simply by demographics that Islam is set to rule the world by shere numbers.

It is a lot later than most people think, because the Word of God tells us that the Lord will return before the religion of Islam takes over the entire world. That fact is revealed in the last part of Daniel’s interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream:

“His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. You saw that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces” Daniel 2:33-34.

Daniel described to Nebuchadnezzar his dream, during which time he saw an image made of gold, silver, brass, iron and feet of clay mixed with iron. These metals represented the Babylonian Empire (gold), Medo-Persians (silver), Grecian (brass), Roman (iron) and last of all a mixed kingdom, half strong (fierce), and half weak (conservative); which means that the last advancing kingdom is going to take power even when the world is only partly fierce (iron) and partly weak (clay). Islam will have infiltrated only about half of the world’s populations, not all, when the Lord returns to crush it to pieces (represented by the stone which broke the feet of iron and clay).

Having only infiltrated half of the populations, the antichrist kingdom will still come to power because of their fierce “iron teeth” (Daniel 7:19), striking terror in the weak.

As I mentioned earlier, Muslims have no qualms about walking into a church and declaring they are going to bring it down. Again, I say, try that in a Muslim nation at one of their mosques. Do you get the implication here?

Christians haven’t ruled, killed, or destroyed, because our God, the One true God, has reserved that privilege for Himself. He is not cruel. He is patiently waiting for those who will see the light of His truth and love for all souls, as He does not willingly afflict His people (Lamentations 3:33), but He must bring just judgment in the end.

God and His people are calling you now, before it’s too late.

“The Spirit (of God) and the Bride (His church) say, Come; and let him that hears say, Come; and let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” Revelation 22:17.

…before it’s too late:

“I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life, and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works…and whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:12, 15.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.


In AD 1559, John Alloysius, being sent from Geneva to preach in Calabria, was there apprehended as a Protestant, carried to Rome, and burnt by order of the pope; and James Bovellus, for the same reason, was burnt at Messina.

Excerpts taken from Fox’s Book of Martyrs – Zondervan Publishing House (1926)

The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal murders of Protestant Christians who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4.

God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!

Vision of Hell


VISION OF HELL

I rose up early to pray on May 20, 2017, and while praying in the living room, I suddenly slipped into a vision. Generally, I would only include this vision on the Prophecy page, but I felt led of the Lord to add it to the Sermons page as well.

On May 20, 2017, while praying, I slipped into a vision (while awake) and I saw the fiery mouth of hell. Its mouth opened wide to receive souls that were slipping into hell nearly on a consistent basis. Every time a soul, or souls in groups, approached the mouth of hell, it opened wide to receive them. There was fire all around hell, but the mouth was very distinct in the midst of it and I could see the mouth of hell repeatedly open and close, open and close, every time souls descended into it.

Folks, hell is a very real place. After receiving this vision, my mind went to the Word of the Lord:

“Therefore, My people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge (of spiritual things) and their honorable men are famished and their multitude dried up with thirst (because of lack of wisdom and knowledge, which only comes from God). Therefore, hell has enlarged herself and opened her mouth without measure, and their glory, their multitude and pomp and he that rejoices shall descend into it. The mean man shall be brought down and the mighty man shall be humbled and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled” Isaiah 5:13-15.

Jesus spoke of the penalty of hell. He said,

“I will forewarn you whom you shall fear; fear Him, which after He has killed, has the power to cast into hell; yes, I say unto you, fear Him” Luke 12:5.

Jesus also warned at one point, not once, not twice, but three times against ending up in hell, as detailed in Mark 9:

“If your hand offends you, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life  (eternal) maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched, where their worm (flesh worms) dies not and the fire is not quenched. And if your foot offends you, cut it off; it is better for you to enter halt (lame) into life (eternal life), than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched, where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched. If your eye offends you, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter into the Kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire, where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched” Mark 9:43-48.

The Lord was very descriptive about hell. His point was that we need to avoid hell at all costs. He detailed the fact that hell is a consuming fire, but the soul does not die in hell and the fire is never quenched. In other words, people who end up there are burned forever, but they never die.

“So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth” Matthew 13:49-50.

An angel in heaven will warn the inhabitants of earth, during the great tribulation (There will still be an opportunity to repent. Those who do will suffer martyrdom [Revelation 20:4]):

“The third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast (antichrist) and his image and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever, and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name” Revelation 14:9-12.

Some religious sects say these are all allegories and not literal warnings. Those people had better consider these facts, before making a very fatal presumption: The last passage of scripture above comes from the Book of Revelation. Consider what Jesus said at the end of that book, as described by John the Revelator:

“I testify unto every man that hears the Words of the prophecy of this book, ‘If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book; and if any man shall take away from the Words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life and out of the Holy City and from the things which are written in this book” Revelation 22:18-19.

Okay, so if you still dare to add your opinion to the Words that were spoken by the Prophet Isaiah, Jesus, Luke, Mark and John the Revelator, and take away the literal meaning of what was said by all of them, do so at the risk of eternal hell fire!

I believe God gave me this vision because the end of the age is very near and the saints will be taken up from this world soon. Shortly thereafter, the Word of God says that Death, and Hell following with him, will be given power over a fourth part of the earth:

“And I looked and behold a pale (green – original Greek – green is the color of Islam) horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and hell followed with him, and power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword (the sword is the Muslim’s weapon of choice), and with hunger (there is famine all over the Middle East – except in Israel), and with death and with the beasts of the earth” Revelation 6:8.

“And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, a day, a month and a year (an exact time period) to slay the third part of men” Revelation 9:15.

With this much death coming upon the earth during the great tribulation period, people need to know there is a hell that awaits them, if they don’t repent of their sins, receive Jesus as their Savior and surrender themselves wholeheartedly to God.

Jesus said,

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would rather you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth” Revelation 3:16.

Not only are we supposed to repent and receive Jesus as our Savior, but He requires that we yield ourselves servants to obey Him, not satan (Romans 6:16).

There are millions of Calvinists all over the world that believe they can live like the devil, but get into heaven because they have said the “sinner’s prayer” at some time in their lives. If people believe they can repent and acknowledge Jesus, but not “take up their cross” and follow Him (Matthew 16:24), they have a real shock coming on Judgment Day, according to God’s Word.

James wrote,

“You believe that there is One God; you do well. The devils also believe and tremble” James 2:19.

In other words, believing is only the beginning; surrender to God’s will is also required.

May you not only profess Jesus as your Lord and Savior, but also act like it. Your eternal destiny depends on it.

“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. Wherefore, by their fruits, you shall know them. Not everyone that says unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he that does the will of My Father which is in heaven” Matthew 7:18-21.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
