Feed My Sheep

John 10:27-28, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

As disciples and followers of Christ, we are to share the word of God with others. There are 3 different levels that we are to teach on according to each individual you are speaking to. You don’t want to overload someone who is a new believer in Christ, and you don’t want to speak of the basics to someone who is an avid bible reader. Jesus explains this to Peter in John chapter 21.

John 21:15-17, ” So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

As we know, Jesus is the Shepherd, and at this point in time, He is getting close to the time that He will ascend into heaven. Peter, being one of the apostles is to go out and teach the brethren the word of God. Things have not changed, and God wants His children who know His word to reach out to others. Some of these that we reach out to may be lambs because they are just babes in Christ, and can’t handle the full meat of God’s word. Just like a baby needs milk, and can’t digest food yet. He also told Peter to feed the sheep. Sheep have no need for milk, they need actual food, that is, the meat of God’s word to sustain themselves. Most churches nowadays stay stuck on teaching their flock only the small things of God’s word. They tell you in seminary schools not to teach above a fourth grade level. This has been part of Satan’s plan. He doesn’t want people knowing the truth or the strong meat of God’s word. He just wants everyone to remain as a lamb on milk. What does God’s word say about this?

Hebrews 5:13-14, “For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

So in order to exercise your senses, that is, to have eyes to see, and ears to hear so that you may be able to discern both good and evil, you need to be fed the meat of God’s word. Most churches stick to only teaching about salvation and baptism. They tell you that you don’t need to read and understand certain books of the bible because, of course, they’ve read it and understand it, and that you’re going to be flown out of here in a pre-trib rapture. None of this is new though. Satan doesn’t want you prepared, and he definitely doesn’t want you knowing what happens in the last days.

2 Timothy 3:1-7, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Sounds exactly like this generation! Always learning, but never actually coming to the knowledge of truth. They’re so busy pleasing their flesh, and don’t take any time to study God’s word. They just trust the man in the pulpit to teach them a watered down version of God’s word. They’re educated by worldly standards, not Godly standards. Satan uses the education system (including the media), economical system, political system, and religious system (these four things are known as the four horns/four hidden dynasties) to get some of his best lies out there to deceive the masses. Father warned us of the famine that would be here in the last days in the book of Amos.

Amos 8:11, “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:”

This is what is taking place right now! If you try to even speak up against the false teachers and false doctrines, you get rebuked, even from other “so called” Christians. That’s okay though, we are still called to go out and feed the lambs and the sheep. We plant the seed, and Father waters it, if it’s His will. Jesus was hated and persecuted for teaching truth, and we will be also.

John 15:20-21, “ Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.”

It’s far better to be hated for standing up for Christ and what’s right than what the world deems right. Those who stand for truth won’t be popular to the world, but Father sees what you are doing. You don’t have to have some fancy degree to understand God’s word, you don’t even need to be an adult to know and teach God’s word. God’s word is so simple, even a child can understand it. That’s why Jesus said in Matthew 19, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” For those out there teaching God’s work, and exposing the evils going on in the world, keep fighting the good fight!!!! Keep blowing that trumpet and sounding the alarm! In doing so, you are feeding His sheep.

Speaking In Tongues

James 3:6, “And the tongue is a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness, is placed among the parts of our bodies. It pollutes the whole body, sets the course of life on fire, and is set on fire by hell.

Speaking in tongues…is it biblical, or is it a man made tradition that has been passed down in many churches? There are some churches that believe the “Holy Ghost” means that you speak in an unknown language to God. They typically use Acts chapter 2 to back up this claim, but let’s go through this chapter and see what was actually taking place here.

Acts 2:1-12, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?”

So what happened to the apostles on Pentecost? The Holy Spirit spoke through them. What does this mean? They spoke in a cloven tongue, meaning a language that went out in all directions. Notice how verse 5 tells us that there were people there from every nation under heaven, and then the next few verses go on to tell us examples of the different nations that were there. When the apostles began to speak and the Holy Spirit descended upon them, everyone that was there of all those different nations heard the apostles speaking in THEIR OWN NATIVE TONGUE. That’s the evidence of the Holy Spirit. Everyone understood it in their own language. There was no need for an interpreter. The Holy Spirit tongue talking you hear about in Pentecostal and charismatic churches today is not at all what happened here on Pentecost day. It is pure gibberish! It is a made up tradition of man that makes void the word of God. There is nothing in the bible that backs up what these people are doing in churches today. God is not the author of confusion, and the babbling that goes on in these type of churches where people are rolling all over the floor, running up and down the aisles, falling over, ect. is NOT of God!!!!! I know this may offend some, but you know who it really offends? Our Heavenly Father. Jesus did not roll around babbling, the apostles did not do it, and neither should you! The word tongue means language.

Strong’s Concordance G1100
glóssa: the tongue, a language

Original Word: γλῶσσα, ης, ἡ
Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
Transliteration: glóssa
Phonetic Spelling: (gloce-sah’)
Short Definition: the tongue, a language, nation
Definition: the tongue, a language, a nation (usually distinguished by their speech).

If you have the gift of tongues, like Paul did, it means you can speak and understand many languages, like Spanish, Greek, Japanese, German, ect. An unknown tongue would be a language that you do not know. If you went to another country such as China, and you didn’t understand their language, it would be unknown to you therefore you would need a translator.  When the Holy Spirit spoke through the apostles, it was heard by each and every person there in their own native language, even down to the exact dialect from where they were from. Meaning if you were from the south, and you were there, you would have heard them speak it with a southern accent. So what was the purpose of the Holy Spirit coming upon the apostles on this day? Father knew that there would be people gathered there from many nations, and when this happened to the apostles, the people of the different nations heard the true word of God spoken, and 3,000 people were converted and followed Christ!

There are a few other scriptures in the book of Acts that go over tongues just like the tongues spoken of in Acts chapter 2. Let’s look at Acts chapter 10 and Acts chapter 19.

Just to give an overview of Acts chapter 10, Peter was given a vision from God while he was on his rooftop praying. Many use these verses to condone eating unclean foods, which is not at all what this chapter is about. This vision was to show Peter that people who were born Gentile’s could receive God as well as long as they believed on Him. When Christ died on the cross, and the veil was rent, all were able to come to God if they believed on Him, and accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Gentile’s would now be able to be grafted into the Father’s fold. Let’s take a look at the word Gentile to see what it means. It’s important to do this because most churches teach that people who practice the religion of Judaism are Israelites, and Christians are Gentile’s. This is NOT true! Christians are the true Israelite’s. You can’t deny Christ and be called one of God’s chosen people.

1 John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”

Christ also goes over this in John chapter 8.

John 8:38-45, “I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.”

These who practice the religion of Judaism, who call themselves Jews, but do lie, those who are actually the children of the devil are actually Gentile’s!

We will go into more detail of that in a future teaching, but for right now, let’s look at the word Gentile in the Strong’s Concordance:

1484. ethnos
Strong’s Concordance
ethnos: a race, a nation, pl. the nations (as distinct from Isr.)

Original Word: ἔθνος, ους, τό
Part of Speech: Noun, Neuter
Transliteration: ethnos
Phonetic Spelling: (eth’-nos)
Short Definition: a race, people, the Gentiles
Definition: a race, people, nation; the nations, heathen world, Gentiles.

So, as we see, the word Gentile, is translated as “ethnos” or those of a different race, nation, or who do not believe on God. Many gentile’s mentioned all throughout the bible believed in pagan god’s. When one of these came to believe on Christ, and followed our Father’s word, they now could become an Israelite, or a Christian, and this is what God was pointing out to Peter. God knew Cornelius loved Him, and followed Him and that’s why He sent him to Peter. Now that we’ve established that, let’s move forward.

Acts 10:34-48, “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”

Notice when Peter starts out talking that he points out how God is not a respecter of persons. Father used many people in the bible to do His will, and everyone that is on this Earth is a child of God. Christ didn’t just come for Israel and Judah, but for everyone! It’s important to know though, that if you do not believe on Christ, then these blessings are not for you.

John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

It doesn’t matter what country you come from, what race you are, what language you speak, Christ paid the price for all of our sins and is faithful and just to forgive us of them as long as you repent, and believe on Him!

Now I want to point out the word “Jews” in this verse, and a little bit of background on this word. Many have been taught that Jesus was a “Jew” or that Jesus was “King of the Jews.” This is one of the many things Satan’s children have done to the more modern versions of the bible written after the 18th century. The original manuscripts did not use the word “Jew.” This is why many confuse those of our brother Judah with those who practice the religion of Judaism. We pointed out some scripture earlier to point out who those are that practice this religion.

The Jews admit that they are not the descendants of the Ancient Israelite’s in their writings. Under the heading of “A brief History of the Terms for Jew” in the 1980 Jewish Almanac is the following:

“Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.”
(1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).

The etymology of the word “Jew” is very clear. Although “Jew” is a modern translation, its roots lie in the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. That is, the modern English word “Jew” is the 18th century contraction and corruption of the 4th century Latin “Iudaeus” found in St. Jerome’s Vulgate Edition and derived from the Greek word “Ioudaios.” The Greek word “Ioudaios”simply means someone who lives in Judea. Satan’s children purposely corrupted this word so that people would be confused. Automatically when they hear the word “Jew” they think of someone from the religion of Judaism instead of what it’s true meaning denotes. Father warned us of this in His word:

Revelation 2:9, “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Revelation 3:8-9, “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”

Now that we’ve briefly discussed the word “Jew,” let’s move on to the rest of what is happening in these verses. Peter is telling Cornelius and those of his household about all the things that they had already been hearing about Christ, and what him and the apostles witnessed first hand. He is also letting them know what job Christ gave them as His apostles, to go out and spread the word of God. This is the same job we as Christians are called to do today! That way we can help those who are spiritually dead or blind to the true word of God. It was right after Peter spoke these things to these Gentile’s that they received the Holy Spirit. Why? Because they believed in Christ, and were followers of the One True God! This amazed those that were with Peter because there was evidence of the Holy Spirit, being that everyone there heard these Gentile’s speak in their own native language! So basically when these native Italian’s received the Holy Spirit, they sounded just like they came from Joppa, the place where Peter’s friends came from, while he was living at Simon, the tanner’s house. This is exactly like what happened in Acts chapter 2 on Pentecost day. It was then AFTER they received the Holy Spirit that Cornelius and those who were with him were baptized.

Now let’s look at Acts chapter 19. This time we will be looking at Paul while he is in Ephesus talking to a group of Christian believers.

Acts 19:1-7, “And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. And all the men were about twelve.”

So we see Paul asking this group of Christians if they have received the Holy Spirit. They tell him that they were baptized by water, but not by the Holy Spirit. They hadn’t even heard of it. The baptism they received from John was a baptism of repentance of sins. They were saying that they had a change of heart, were turning from sin, and believed on Jesus Christ. These Christians had been baptized before Christ died on the cross approximately 20 years prior, and at the time being a Christian was dangerous. That is why they hadn’t heard about the Holy Spirit. When Paul laid hands on the men, they received the Holy Spirit. This was the same thing that happened in Acts chapter 2 and Acts chapter 10. The men spoke in the cloven tongue that went out in all directions and everyone present heard it in their own native tongue. Once again, no need for an interpreter.

Let’s take a look at some videos that show how tongues or the “Holy Spirit” doctrine has been taught in churches today. These are not true examples of the Holy Spirit. This would be the man made tradition of tongues and is in no way biblical. Christ and His apostles would not have had any part in this type of actions, they would have likely rebuked it and bound it. No one will be speaking in the cloven or Pentecostal tongue until Satan is here pretending to be Christ, and God’s elect are delivered up. Then and only then will the Holy Spirit speak through them so that they may testify against Satan.

Luke 21:12-15, “But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”

Mark 13:9-11, “But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.”

If you do not allow the Holy Spirit to speak through you at the time you are delivered up that, is the unforgivable sin.

Luke 12:9-12, “But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God. And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.”

Brainwashing children in the church today with this false “tongues” gospel from the documentary “Camp Jesus.”

False prophet, Rick Joyner, Morningstar Ministries, “The Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey.”

Matthew 6:7, “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”

Nowhere in Father’s word does He say we should be doing these things. Father doesn’t change, and His word stays the same, but man tries to corrupt His word to fit their own evil doctrine!

Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

This “Holy Ghost” movement we see in the churches today is demonic! It’s a spirit, but not a spirit of God! Satan preys on those who are out of their good heart seeking what they have been taught through false doctrine is speaking in tongues. It is not of God at all, and Father is highly against these things, and the evil preachers who are teaching this to the churches. They will be held accountable for teaching this false doctrine. Judgement begins at the pulpit, and those preaching this false and evil speaking in tongues doctrine will receive judgement from the Lord for misleading His children.

1 Peter 4:17, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

1 Corinthians 14 is another chapter that talks about the word tongues, but this chapter is not speaking of the same type of tongue that  Acts chapters 2, 10, and 19 were talking about. It isn’t speaking of the cloven tongue that goes out in many different languages, but a single tongue or language. This chapter is improperly taught in most churches and one of the main reasons is because of the word, “unknown.” The word “unknown” was never intended to be put in this chapter, and was not in the original manuscripts. Anytime you see a word in your bible that is in italics, it’s because it wasn’t in the manuscripts. Sometimes they were added because there wasn’t a word that would translate from the Greek or Hebrew into English.

1 Corinthians 14:1-4, “Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.”

So what are these verses saying? Well first let’s look at the word prophecy here. The prophets that came before us wrote these words of the bible because they were divinely inspired by God. We therefore as Christians, when we go out and teach these words to others are teaching about these prophecies that came from the divine inspiration of our Heavenly Father.

prophéteuó: to foretell, tell forth, prophesy

Original Word: προφητεύω

When you teach others about the word of God, it edifies them, and they are able to learn and understand things. However if you were speaking to a group of say, Spanish people, and you couldn’t speak Spanish, the language you speak, English, would be unknown to them. Since your native tongue would be unknown to them, there would be no way for them to understand what it is that you are saying. Only you would be able to understand what you are saying. The babbling and gibberish we see these charismatic and pentecostal preachers teaching their flock today isn’t God’s prophetic word, it doesn’t lead to the edifying of the church, and it certainly doesn’t help the members understand anything that is going on in the bible. These people truly think they have the Holy Spirit, but there is no confusion with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit leads us and guides us, it has nothing to do with vain babblings. Confusion is from the devil! The very verse that speaks of this is in this chapter (1 Corinthians 14:33.) The word babble itself means confusion!

1 Corinthians 14:5-9, “I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine? And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.”

These verses make it perfectly clear! Paul is saying that it’s better that they go out and teach those who understand their language than to speak in a language to people who wouldn’t understand it. Paul could speak several different languages, and he is telling them, that it wouldn’t benefit them at all, and it wouldn’t bring them revelation, knowledge, or anything if he spoke to them in a tongue, that is language, that they did not know. He even takes it a step further by using things that make a sound. If it doesn’t make a distinct sound, you wouldn’t know what the object was. If a trumpet squeaked or whistled instead of making a regular trumpet sound, you wouldn’t be ready for battle. If you were teaching at a church, and they didn’t understand your language, you might as well be speaking into the air because they will not be able to understand you.

1 Corinthians 14:10-17, “There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me. Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest? For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.”

Let’s look at the word significance in verse 10. To completely understand the meaning of this verse, you need to know the meaning of this very word in this verse.

880. aphónos
Strong’s Concordance
aphónos: without voice, i.e. speechless

Original Word: ἄφωνος, ον
Part of Speech: Adjective
Transliteration: aphónos
Phonetic Spelling: (af’-o-nos)
Short Definition: soundless, voiceless, speechless, dumb
Definition: soundless, voiceless, speechless, dumb, without meaning.

So the word significance in this verse means voiceless, dumb, or without meaning. Now let’s read the verse with this definition in it:

“There are, it may be, so many of the voices in the world, and none of them is dumb and without meaning.”

What is Paul saying? That every word of every language has meaning. It’s not dumb. Every word is important and has an implied meaning. Therefore if you are speaking in a made up jibber jabber, you might as well be blowing hot air because there is no meaning or significance to your words. Barbarian means foreigner, and if someone from another country speaks to you in a language you don’t understand than it will be like a barbarian is speaking to you. The same applies if you are a speaking to someone in a language they don’t understand. It’s foreign to them. Paul is using many examples to point out here that you either need to know the language of the people you are teaching to, or you need to have a translator, otherwise the word you teach will be null and void. The same applies if you are praying in a unknown tongue or language. It won’t benefit you any if you can’t understand what you are saying. If you are muttering sounds and words that have no meaning, your prayer will be in vain and be unfruitful. In verse 15 Paul is pointing out that when he prays and sings in the spirit, he does it in a language that he has full knowledge of and understands. Your mind must be in tune with the Holy Spirit when you are praying and to do so, you have to have understanding of what you are saying. In verses 16 and 17 he is pointing out that if you are speaking to a group of foreigners in a language that’s not known to them, they won’t even know when to say “AMEN.” They will have no understanding of what you are saying, and what you are praying about, and therefore they will not take anything away from what you said, and cannot be edified. Paul has went out of his way to break down things is several ways to show you he is speaking of an actual language in these verses, not a made up language that no one knows. It’s almost impossible to see how so many churches can confuse this with the evil made up act of speaking in a babbling language that goes on in many churches today.

1 Corinthians 14:18-20, “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

Paul had a gift of being able to speak in many different languages, but he points out in these verses that he would rather speak a few words to those who would understand his speech than thousands of words in a language that people wouldn’t understand. Paul is also telling us not to be like a child who might not be able to understand things, but like a mature adult who should be able to understand things clearly.

1 Corinthians 14:21-25, “In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.”

Paul is quoting Isaiah 28 when he is speaking here in verse 21 of men who speak in other tongues or languages.

Isaiah 28:9-11, “Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.”

Isaiah was making irony of the matter, for the message that was brought forth in a different language was one of the judgment of God, and not God’s mercy. The teachers of the end times will not care to look deep enough into the emotions of our Father to know his true feelings, to know what the Father desired. This is why they would come with their stammering lips and foreign tongues.

How are tongues a sign to those that don’t believe? This would be like what happened in Acts chapter 2, and what will happen again when Antichrist, Satan is here pretending to be Christ, and God’s elect are delivered up to testify against him. It’s not what you’re saying that will necessarily make these unbelievers believe you, but the fact that all will be able to understand you in their own native language. That is a sign of the end times, and it won’t take place again until Satan is here pretending to be Christ. If a non believer walked in on a church speaking in a language that they didn’t know, they would be confused if they couldn’t understand the language everyone was speaking in. Verse 24 is moving from tongues to prophesy. The 2 have very different meanings. To prophecy is to teach the deep meaning of God’s word. When teaching is going on in a church in many different languages at the same time, the effect will be the same as it was in Acts 2, for it will be something that has never been seen before. However if the one that is prophesying is teaching the true Word of God in a language they understand, then those coming in that are unsaved hear what is being taught, will be convicted and repent and turn to Christ. The heart is the same as your mind, and when you teach others what you have in your mind after you have come to the full understanding of God’s word, you are giving them the true word of God. Now they will begin to understand their need for a Savior, and they will turn from their ways and repent of their sins because they will feel conviction from the Lord. This can only happen when someone understands the word clearly, not traditions of men that are contradictory to the true word of God and only cause confusion.

1 Corinthians 14:26-32, “How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.”

When the body of Christ come together at church, each one has knowledge that they can bring to the table, but it’s important that they speak one at a time so that they edify instead of causing confusion. If someone is there that does speak a different language, let it only be 2 or 3, and make sure that there is someone there to translate it to the people there that do not understand that language. If there is no one there to translate, then it’s best that that person keep his words to himself and to God. If they try to speak in a language that no one can understand, it would be a distraction to the church. You never want to have too many people speaking at a church service. Usually only 2 or 3 people, and always one at a time that way they can listen and discern what they are teaching.

1 Corinthians 14:33, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

This verse is so very important! God is not the author of confusion! Satan is though. He is using these charismatic and pentecostal teachers and preachers to mislead God’s children with this evil, false doctrine of speaking in tongues. Does this practice look like it’s of peace? No, it is not peaceful or Godly at all! God has no part in it, and it offends Him greatly!

1 Corinthians 14:34-35, “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”

These verses are also some that are taught improperly in the church today, so let’s go over what is actually being said here. When it is speaking about talking in church, it actually means that there shouldn’t be a woman, man, or child chattering while the preacher is teaching the congregation. Remember that the church is called the bride which is a feminine term, but it applies to the whole church. If you look back in 1 Corinthians chapter 11, verses 5 and 13, women were told to pray and prophesy in the church, but they were told to keep their heads covered, meaning that they need to have Christ over their heads. This is why women get a bad rap when the men do the interpretation of the Word. Chatter is a distraction to the one teaching, and also to those who are trying to learn something that may be a bit difficult to understand with clarity. The course of the subject is to convey the message from God’s Word and chatter interferes with that course.

1 Corinthians 14:36-40, “What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.”

Paul is teaching here that the words spoken did not come from man, but they were inspired by God. If someone is claiming to be a prophet, or teacher, their words better line up with God’s words. They should not be their own words and traditions that they are twisting to fit their own purpose or to mislead. Paul’s words always lined up with God’s words. That’s how you check a preacher to know if what they are teaching is true. If it doesn’t line up with the word, then you should find a different church. If someone wants to believe the garbage spouted in most churches today that go against God’s true word, and want to be ignorant, let them be. We are called to go out and teach this word though, line upon, line, chapter by chapter, so that people may come to the true knowledge of it, and have a clear understanding of what is being taught. Most churches nowadays focus on one watered down verse and then give their own life stories to back it up in their own way. Then the rest of the service is spent singing, dancing, drinking coffee, ect. No one really even brings their bibles anymore because churches are now more like night clubs than a Holy place of God. They have big screens for their watered down versions of the word, and light shows. It’s a joke, and if Christ was here, he would be whipping people out of these churches just like he did in John chapter 2!

John 2:13-16, “And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.”

Out of the seven churches that Father spoke of in the book of revelation, there were only 2 that He was pleased with, and those were the 2 that knew the key of David, that is the true genealogy of Christ, and the truth about Satan’s children that are here on earth today! Those churches were Smyrna and Philadelphia. If your church is participating in the false doctrines we have spoken of in this teaching, and our past teachings, then it is not one of the churches that Father is proud of.

Let’s finish up these last few verses in 1 Corinthians 14. In verse 39 when it says, “and forbid not to speak with tongues,” it is saying that we are also not to forbid an interpreter to follow a teacher that is teaching in another language. But whatever method and process that the teaching takes, let it be done with order, and deliver the message with dignity. The word decently in the last verse would actually be better translated as honestly. When we teach the word to others, we need to remember to teach on their level. Not everyone is on the same level, and not everyone is able to understand God’s word as quickly as others. So when we teach, do it honestly and clearly so that they may understand.

We know there are other verses in the bible that speak of tongues, but these are those that many churches use for their false doctrine of speaking in tongues. Always remember, God is not, and never will be the author of confusion, so if you see things or hear things in church that are confusing, you should know who they come from. We pray that this teaching helped all who read it, and that it opened eyes and ears to God’s true word!

 

Satan’s Attack On The Family

God ordained the family back in the Garden of Eden, and Satan has always hated this institution. Satan has been doing his best since the beginning to attack and separate the family. His first attack happened when he beguiled Eve in the garden. We will go into a deeper teaching on that in the future, but I assure you, she did not eat an apple. The act that took place in the garden was a sexual act between her and Satan, and Adam also partook of this fruit.

Genesis 3:6-7, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”

What did Adam and Eve notice after “eating” the fruit? That they were naked, and then they covered their private parts with fig leaves.

Genesis 3:13, “And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

The word beguiled in this verse is  exapataó meaning to seduce wholly.

1818. exapataó
Strong’s Concordance
exapataó: to seduce wholly, deceive

Original Word: ἐξαπατάω
Part of Speech: Verb
Transliteration: exapataó
Phonetic Spelling: (ex-ap-at-ah’-o)
Short Definition: I deceive thoroughly
Definition: I deceive thoroughly.

Then what does God tell the serpent?

Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Let’s take a look at that word seed in this verse. Here it is in the Strong’s Concordance:

2233. zera
Strong’s Concordance
zera: a sowing, seed, offspring

Original Word: זָ֫רַע
Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
Transliteration: zera
Phonetic Spelling: (zeh’-rah)
Short Definition: descendants

So the word seed in verse 15 in the 3rd chapter of Genesis is talking about putting enmity between Satan’s (the serpent’s) seed, and Eve’s seed. Most don’t know that Satan has a physical seed line or offspring dwelling in the earth today, but he does. Cain was the son of Satan and Eve, and it was Cain who killed his half twin brother Abel who the bloodline of Christ was to come through. Christ even documents this when talking to Satan’s children in John chapter 8.

John 8:38-44, “I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Who was the first murderer???? Cain! These Kenite’s that Christ is speaking to here, Kenite’s being the descendants of Cain, are the very ones who had Christ Crucified. Christ also tells of the seed line of Satan in Matthew chapter 13 when he explains the parable of the wheat and the tares.

Matthew 13:24-30, “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

Christ then explains later in this chapter who sowed the tares:

Matthew 13:36-42, “Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

Remember as we mentioned above what this word seed means. It literally means, children, offspring, and descendants. This is why the sin committed in the garden by Adam and Eve was so evil. I know this is probably new to some people and difficult to take in, but if you use a Strong’s Concordance to look up the words in Genesis Chapter 3, such as fruit, eat, and touch, you will see that Eve and Adam took part in a sexual act with Satan, thus resulting in the birth of Cain.

At that time, Satan was doing this to defile the very bloodline that Christ would come through. He made many attempts at this, and today he is doing this with things such as the worldwide acceptance towards homosexuality, the LGBT movement, divorce, adultery, pornography, feminism, co-habitation, premarital sex, and a generation that now thinks marriage is a joke. His agenda from the beginning is to turn people away from Christ. He knows if he does this, then his return at the 6th trump will result in most of the world following after him because they will believe that he himself is Christ.

Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The TRUE Christ does not come until the 7th trump, and those that are true followers of God’s word will know this. They have the key of David, that is knowing the true genealogy of Jesus, and knowing who these Kenite’s are.

Revelation 3:7-9, “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”

Revelation 2:9, “ I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Satan is going to be so convincing that if it were possible, even the very elect could be deceived (Matthew 24:24), but I don’t believe they will. They know he will be coming at the 6th trump pretending to be Christ, even looking just like many churches have portrayed Christ to look like.

Why was Satan so convincing to Eve? Remember she said the tree was “pleasant to the eyes.” Satan is not the scary, red horned, ugly being that movies and churches point him out to be. Satan, also known as Lucifer was beautiful! He was the whole package, and he knew scripture better than anyone else. That’s what he uses to deceive the masses, and it’s what he used to deceive Eve. He used scripture on her, but twisted it at the end. He attempted to do this to Christ when he tempted him in the wilderness as well. You can bet he is using men in the pulpit today to twist scripture to deceive people so they will be ready for him when he returns. Satan is a scripture lawyer, and knows exactly what to say to mislead people. He has pastors preaching all kinds of false doctrine in the churches today. He even has pastors teaching that it’s okay to be homosexual, and even has homosexual preachers teaching in the churches today!

2 Corinthians 11:13-15, “ For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

What most churches make Satan out to look like:

What Satan will actually look like:

Ezekiel 28:14-19, “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.”

So now that we’ve pointed out how Satan deceived Adam & Eve, let’s go into some of the things he is doing today to separate the family or to defile the idea of marriage according to the bible. Let’s start by looking at what Father says about marriage.

Genesis 2:24, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 5:25-31, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.”

1 Corinthians 7:1-5, “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

Proverbs 18:22, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

Genesis 9:1, “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

Jeremiah 29:6, “Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished.

These are just a few of the verses in the bible that point out how marriage is a blessing, and what Father wants for us. He also clearly states what our duties are as husbands and wives, and that we are to go and bear children as well. Children are a blessing from the Lord.

Psalm 127:3-5, “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”

Proverbs 17:6, “ Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

So then why are so many people, Christian people, in this generation turning away from marriage? Why do we see so many adults in their late 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s still living at home with their parents, not getting married and not having children? Because this is what Satan wants! He has convinced this generation that it’s okay to have premarital sex, that marriage and love means nothing. That abortion and birth control is the solution. That all we need to focus on is ourselves! Why would anyone need to get married in this generation, men especially when they can get all their needs met online. The porn industry is booming, and even young men nowadays don’t have to go any further than flipping on the tv or watching a youtube video to find all kinds of vulgarity.

Below is an article that’s showing that young men prefer porn to marriage:

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/shock-study-men-choosing-porn-over-marriage-threatening-economy-society/article/2557461

 

2014 Pornography Survey of Christian Men: Shocking new national survey reveals high levels of pornography use and rampant extramarital affairs among Christian men

The statistics for Christian men between 18-30 years old are particularly striking:

  • 77% look at pornography at least monthly;
  • 36% view pornography at least daily;
  • 32% admit being addicted to pornography (and another 12% think they may be).

The statistics for middle-aged Christian men (ages 31-49) are no less disturbing:

  • 77% looked at pornography while at work in the past 3 months;
  • 64% view pornography at least monthly; and
  • 18% admit being addicted to pornography (and another 8% think they may be).

Even married Christian men are falling prey to pornography and extra-marital sexual affairs at alarming rates:

  • 55% look at pornography at least monthly; and
  • 35% had an extra-marital sexual affair while married.

“These statistics knock the wind right out of you. They also confirm what we already know; that there definitely is a problem with pornography and affairs among Christians men and that they are starving for the church to step forward with solutions,” according to Joel Hesch, who sponsored the survey and is the founder of a non-profit biblically-based organization named Proven Men Ministries. Hesch adds, “The purpose of the survey was not to point fingers, but to get a better grasp on the scope of the problem in light of ready access to pornography in this Internet era.”

Hesch continues: “It’s abundantly clear that pornography is one of the biggest unaddressed problems in the church.” In fact, these alarming statistics are not limited to those who nominally consider themselves Christian.

Those who identify themselves as born-again Christians have similar struggles with pornography and affairs:

  • 95% admit that they have viewed pornography;
  • 54% look at pornography at least once a month;
  • 44% viewed pornography at work in the last 90 days;
  • 31% had a sexual affair while married;
  • 25% erase Internet browsing history to conceal pornography use; and
  • 18% admit being addicted to pornography (and another 9% think they may be).

These statistics are sad, but this was Satan’s plan! This isn’t even including things that most don’t consider porn or how some use social media as a sexual tool. These things are preventing young men from wanting relationships, and breaking apart relationships and marriage. Remember, Satan hates the institution of marriage because he knows it’s a blessing and gift from God, so he’s going to do everything in his power to take that blessing away from people.

Pornography, adultery, lust, premarital sex (fornication), homosexuality, and many other sexually immoral things are spoken of all over in the bible. That shows you just how much our Heavenly Father is against these things, but we now live in a world where good is bad and bad is good. Anything goes. There’s no moral compass anymore. That’s how we know we are living in the last days. The world is starting to look much like Sodom and Gomorrah.

2 Timothy 3:1-7, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Sounds a lot like the world we are living in today, doesn’t it? Where all matter of evil is accepted and looked upon as good. Where everyone is selfish, committing sin regularly while calling themselves “Christians.” Now let’s look at some scriptures about sexual immorality to see what exactly the Lord thinks of these things.

1 Corinthians 6:18, “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

Hebrews 13:4, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

1 Thessalonians 3-5, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:”

Ephesians 5:5, “ For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

1 Corinthians 6:13-20, “Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Galatians 5:19, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Mark 7:20-23, “And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”

2 Timothy 2:22, “Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

1 Peter 2:11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

These are only a few of the scriptures that cover this subject. There are many more all throughout the bible. So it’s very clear that Father is against these things. Satan would have you believe that there’s nothing wrong with them. Most think they can do them and repent later, but when you know Father’s word and continue to do things, Father doesn’t look to kindly on it. We all fall short, but to continue to live a life of sin is a problem. With that being said, let’s move on to some scripture covering a subject that many Christians try to avoid. That is homosexuality. Father considers it an abomination, and His word is very clear about the subject. That is the very reason he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. So many churches, even large, popular churches are accepting this and now the schools are promoting the LGBT movement.

 

 

Satan isn’t just attacking husband and wives, he is after your children as well. Think about all the filth on television, in movies, video games, advertisements, toys, books magazines. Everything is meant to defile your children and take them away from God. It is our job as parents to make sure we prevent this and instill good morals in them. The schools have been indoctrinating children for a long time. Ever since they took the Bible out of the schools! Now we have a generation of children who think it’s okay to chose whether you want to be a girl or a boy, who think premarital sex with multiple partners is okay, and that they can experiment with homosexual acts. Children aren’t born this way, they are made that way. Saying that God made them that way is vile. God wouldn’t create something that goes against His word. So what does God’s word say about homosexuality???

Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

Romans 1:26-28, “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

God’s word is also very clear that he made male and female, there is no confusion with the Lord. He created man for woman, and woman for man. Period!

Mark 10:6-9, “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

Satan, and his children, the Kenite’s are the ones promoting this LGBT agenda, and they are pushing it on your children to corrupt them and defile them. Does this look like something Godly and pure?

Philippians 4:8-9, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”

Tied to the homosexual agenda is the feminism agenda. There aren’t any good male role models nowadays like their used to be. Most television shows make fun of the traditional family, and cut down males as a whole. Most of the research done regarding millennials who are not married state that a big part of the problem is that most women are career focused now instead of family focused. Women now have careers in fields that were primarily male dominated because they wanted to be equal. God designed specific roles for men and women, and the male is to be the head of the household.

Ephesians 5:23, “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

1 Corinthians 11:3, “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Below is an article regarding this subject, and why young men are opting out of marriage.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/young-men-giving-up-on-marriage-women-arent-women-anymore

We live in a generation where love is treated like a game. No one takes it seriously, they throw it away. God’s perfect plan is now a thing of the past. Sex comes easy and it’s everywhere you look. On magazines, on the television, ect. Just like Satan deceived Adam and Eve, he is deceiving the world with his lies. He’s putting the lusts of the flesh and fleshly desires in the hearts of men so they don’t focus on the Lord. God didn’t put us on this earth for us to please ourselves. We were put here for his pleasure.

Revelation 4:11, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

The Lord knew these days would come, and He warned us all throughout His word. It was meant to help us and guide us through these times and show us how we are to live.

2 Corinthians 11:3, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Satan is subtil. He has slowly gotten the evils to be considered good, and we now live in a country where the abominations that God is against are widely accepted. If you are against them as a Christian, you are called a bigot and talked down to. That is why the churches are now allowing these things. They are being pressured and bullied into it. As Christians, we need to be taking a stand against these things. We need to stand on God’s word and His values, not the world’s values. This teaching wasn’t meant to condemn anyone who has been divorced, had premarital sex, or any other sexual sins. It’s meant to expose the evil that Satan has planned for the family. We have a loving Father who knows our hearts, and if we turn from our sins and repent, then he is faithful and just to forgive us. That’s the key though, you need to turn from them and repent.

1 john 1:9, “ If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

We pray that this teaching helped you, and opened eyes and ears of those that were meant to receive it!

 

The One Taken

Tags

, , , , , ,

Do you want to be the one taken? Most of us have been taught in church that we want to be the one taken, or “raptured” out of here, and we idly listened to our preachers without getting into the word ourselves to find out what Matthew 24:40 was really talking about. If you don’t read the verses prior to this, then you won’t understand it.

Matthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Notice who was taken…it wasn’t Noah. Noah was prepared, and was ready for the flood, while the others were caught up in the world, and did not heed the warning. In the last days there will be another flood coming, but this time it will be a flood of lies from the false preachers who are teaching people that they don’t need to understand and know God’s word about the end time because they are going to fly out of here in the rapture. The rapture doctrine is a false doctrine created by man, and is one of Satan’s greatest deceptions. Luke 17 explains it even more.

Luke 17: 34-37, ” I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.”

You need to know that the proper translation of eagles here is actually vultures just like in Matthew 24:28. What do vultures do? They are scavengers and they prey on dead flesh. In this case it will be speaking of flesh that is spiritually dead. Satan and his vultures, or false teachers who have been misleading people with this rapture doctrine prey on people who are spiritually dead. Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 clearly tell you who will be coming first, and what the signs are. Satan comes first, and will deceive many that he is the true Christ. That is why it says Christ is coming like a thief in the night several times. No one will be watching because they will think Christ is already here. It is Christ who spells this out in these chapters exactly what to be watching for when He comes. It won’t be a secret, all will know when Christ truly appears, and He calls His children to be watchmen. He gave us these signs so we know what to look for. There would be no need for these signs if He just planned to secretly rapture us out of here.

Matthew 24:45-46, “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.”

So the blessed servant is the one who STAYED in the field, the one who was faithful and continued working. Who preached the MEAT of God’s word, not the milk. We are to be doing His work by spreading the TRUE gospel, not looking for a way out. God didn’t rapture Noah out, or Moses, but provided them with a way to get through the tribulations of their time, as He will do for us as well.

The Birth Of Jesus Christ

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

Most Christians, and even non Christians have been taught that Christmas time, December 25th is the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This teaching will help break down scripture and document the true date of Christ’s birth. It will also point out to you where the date of December 25th came from, and how this date is also significant. Why is December 25th significant still? Because it is actually the conception date of Jesus Christ.

One thing that let’s us know that Christ was not born on December 25th is that there were shepherd’s in the field still at the time of His birth. Shepherd’s do not have their flocks out in the middle of winter. Having that said let’s document that December the 25th was Christ’s conception. We are going to start in Luke with Zacharias. For those who don’t remember, Zacharias was a priest who had a course twice a year to work in the temple. This is where you must start and learn when the course he served was. It was the course of Abia.

1 Chronicles 24:10 “The seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah,”

The dates of this course are June 13th-19th on our calendar. With that being said, let’s look at the 1st chapter of Luke.

Luke 1:5 “There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

Zacharias was a Levitical priest, and in order to be married to a Levitical priest, a woman must be a full blood Levite as well. Elisabeth was the daughter of a Levitical priest of the lineage of Aaron, and married this priest Zacharias.

Luke 1:6 “And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

This is why God would use them to bring about the message that would show the dates regarding the birth of the coming Messiah, and His true genealogy. Both Zacharias and Elisabeth met all the legal requirements of the priesthood and kept all the commandments and Levitical laws.

Luke 1:7 “And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

Elisabeth was past the age of child bearing at this time. Becoming pregnant with John the Baptist later in this chapter is a key event, and an absolute miracle from our heavenly Father.

Luke 1:8-10 “And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

So these verses are letting you know where Zacharias was, and what he was doing during the time that his vision will take place. He was faithfully executing his duties as priest. At the time, this was a very sacred event. The people who were waiting outside the temple were there to see the smoke from the incense which was symbolic of the repentance of sins and indication that their prayers had been heard by our heavenly Father.

Luke 1:11-17 “ And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

This angel, Gabriel, as we will find out in a few more verses is a messenger of God, and is here to tell Zacharias that Elisabeth will bear a son named John. The name John in Hebrew means, “Yah’s Gift” which is exactly what John will be, seeing as Elisabeth and Zacharias are both past child bearing years. He will be a great prophet, and will lead many to the Lord. He is a forerunner to Christ, and as you see in verse 15 he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while still in his mother’s womb. Very important considering most teach nowadays that a baby is not even a human being until it’s physically born, which is why abortion is being promoted. We will touch on this a little more later.

Luke 1:18-22 “And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple. And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.

Zacharias questioned the angel Gabriel, and wanted a sign that these things would take place. Zacharias was shocked by this news, even though the message was coming directly from God. He lacked faith, and doubted the words of Gabriel because he knew that him and Elisabeth were stricken in years. Gabriel was not very happy with the response from Zacharias, so he would give him a sign alright. Zacharias would now be unable to speak until the birth of his son, John. This would be very difficult for Zacharias seeing as his very profession as a priest required him to speak.

Luke 1:23 “And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

Zacharias had 2 courses that he had to complete each year. That is why we have documented proof of the dates and how we can come to the conclusion that Christ’s conception date is December 25th. The first course that Zacharias had was from December 6th-12th on our calendar. His second course as we stated above was from June 13th-19th. Remember that Father foretells us all things (Mark 13:23), and these dates have been here all along for those who take the time to study His word on a deeper level. He wants us to study His word to show ourselves approved. Going to church one day a week watching a man in the pulpit touch on a few verses is not enough. That is why so many people are misled and don’t know the true day of Christ’s birth. Below is a very detailed outline on the course of Abia:

http://www.biblestudysite.com/179.htm

So, in this verse we see that Zacharias has completed his second course which would have ended at sunset on a Friday. That would make this the sabbath, therefore he would not be able to travel back home that night. He would then make the trip home on the following day and it would take a few days for him to travel back home from Jerusalem.

Luke 1:24 “And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

So we know it took a few days for Zacharias to travel back home, so this would bring Elisabeth’s conception day to be on or around the 24th of June. Once she conceived she would go into seclusion for 5 months, thus bringing us to the date of November 24th.

Luke 1:25 “Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

It was considered a reproach when a woman could not conceive a child. Zacharias and Elisabeth had been praying for a child for many years, and Father had answered their prayers. Father always has a perfect time for everything, and His plans are better than our own. Just as John’s name states, he is a gift from God, and has an amazing destiny!

Luke 1:26 “And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

So this will now put us at December 24th as it is 6 months from the conception of John. Remember that the Israelite days starts at sundown the day prior rather than midnight, and run to sundown the next day. Gabriel was sent from God to Nazareth, of Galilee to the house of Mary. This visit was to inform Mary that she had been selected, special, a virgin to conceive and bear the coming Messiah. So it would be on December 25th (sundown of the 24th) that the Spirit would come and dwell with mankind. Our Lord Jesus Christ would be conceived!!!!

Luke 1:27-33 “To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

These verses are prophecy being fulfilled. God’s word foretold this event in the verse we used to start this very teaching, Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Immanuel meaning “God with us” which is precisely what is taking place at the moment of His conception. God came to dwell with mankind at that very moment!

Gabriel tells Mary that His name will be Jesus meaning “YHVH’s Salvation.” Can you imagine how Mary must be feeling? Gabriel is telling this young girl that God chose her to give birth to the Savior of the world!!! Her son would be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords since he would be from the line of Judah and Levi.

Luke 1:34-38 “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.”

It’s important to know that Mary was not doubting Gabriel as Zacharias did when he approached him about Elisabeth conceiving. Mary is simply confused as to how this would take place being that she is young and has never known a man. Gabriel explains to her that God’s Holy Spirit will come upon her, and she will conceive. With God ALL things are possible, and he points this out to her by also telling her that her cousin Elisabeth who was barren has also conceived a child and is 6 months pregnant. Mary shows that she has full faith in the Lord, and wants the will of our Father. She is more than willing to be used by our heavenly Father according to His purpose.

Luke 1:39-41 “And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:”

This very same day that Gabriel came to her, she went to go see her cousin Elisabeth. She greeted her cousin, and in that same instant, John, lept in Elisabeth’s womb and was filled with the Holy Spirit! This is a very important verse, especially concerning when a person is considered an actual human being. This shows at conception the spirit and soul of a person enter the baby! Many who are supportive of abortion and think that a baby is not a human being if it’s still in the womb have their proof now. Life begins at conception, period!

Luke 1:42-50 “And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

Elisabeth is excited because she knows that her Savior and Messiah is coming as was foretold in the old testament. Both Mary and Elisabeth knew of these prophecies and feel so very blessed that they were chosen to be part of these things. Elisabeth tells Mary that she is blessed for believing what Gabriel has told her, and that they will see all that he said come to pass. God specifically chose Mary, and knew she would have the faith to believe and would do His will. Mary loved the Lord, and rejoiced at this wonderful news! Satan, from the very beginning tried to ruin the perfect bloodline of Christ when he beguiled Eve in the garden. Father protected it, and everything he said is now coming to pass. This protection was to keep Satan from interfering with God’s plan of salvation. Christ came so that no man would perish. He didn’t just come for those living in His time and after, but for the souls that passed before He was even born. He wants every last one of us to know Him and come to repentance. That is true mercy and love. There is no greater love than that. Even after all we have done, he still wants us and loves us. How can we prove that? Look at 1 Peter chapter 3:

1 Peter 3: 18-19 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;”

So we established the date of Christ’s conception, December 25th. That brings his birth date 9 months later being the 15th of Tisri which is September 29th on our calendar. That is, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles. (Remembering that according to the calendar the Israelite’s kept that would begin September 28th at sunset.)

The Conception of John
23rd Sivan = June 23-24
The Birth of John
7th Nisan = March 28-29
The Miraculous “Begetting”
1st Tebeth = December 25th
THE NATIVITY
15th Tisri = September 29th

So why don’t more people know this since scripture points it out so clearly? Well, that’s because Satan’s children, the Kenite’s, have infiltrated our churches, and have set up the four hidden dynasties to deceive many so that the whole world would worship the false Christ (Satan) when he returns at the 6th trump! The Kenite’s have used the educational and religious dynasties to school ministers with their father’s (Satan’s) doctrine instead of the true word of God! Remember their goal is to deceive the WHOLE WORLD! They want to keep people caught up in the traditions of men. Most people are so worried about getting their houses decorated and buying gifts to the point where they put a strain on their family and their bank account. They have made this the focus instead of Christ. They also don’t take the time to get into God’s word on their own. Father reveals His truth to those He knows take the time to truly study. He wants our love, and we show Him that we love Him when we spend personal time with Him in His word.

I pray that this teaching opens the eyes and ears of those who are meant to see and hear God’s beautiful truth. These teachings are not meant to replace your time in God’s word. It’s important to always study God’s word on your own. Put your trust in no man, only in the Father!

Happy Birthday Jesus!!!!!

The Flood Of The End Times Part 2…Satan’s Flood Of Lies

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Revelation 12:15-17

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

To recap…The flood of the end times are the lies that are being spread in the churches today, and the lies Satan will be using when he is here as Antichrist to deceive the WHOLE world.

Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Who did it say was cast out??? The great dragon, that old serpent, the devil, SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD. Satan is the antichrist! “Anti” in the Greek means instead of, and therefore Satan is coming in place of, or instead of Christ. The antichrist will not be a man born of woman. God made sure that many of Satan’s names were used in this verse so there would be no confusion as to who the antichrist is. One of Satan’s lies is that a man will be the antichrist, and that he is already here today, but there is no scripture that says that. It’s simply a false teaching that has been taught by many preachers today.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

That man of sin, the son of perdition is Satan himself. Perdition (G684 apóleia http://biblehub.com/greek/684.htm)  means that he will lose his eternal life, and there has only been one person in the bible that is a son of perdition and is destined to perish, that is Satan. Satan has already been judged and is sentenced to death. Satan will NEVER be born of woman, and is a supernatural being, an angel whose description is in Ezekiel 28.

Ezekiel 28:12-18

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

Just in case that is not evidence enough that Satan is the antichrist, let’s look at one of his other names, Lucifer in Isaiah 14.

Isaiah 14:12-16

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

In these verses Satan is saying that he will be God, but God is letting him know that for doing this he will be going into the pit!

So 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 is where Paul is telling you that Satan will be here first, pretending to be Christ before the TRUE Christ returns.

Now let’s get back to where we left off in part 1.

Matthew 24:29-31

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Notice how it says in these verses that Christ will return IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION. This is Jesus Christ himself telling the apostles that He will return after the tribulation of Satan. There are 2 tribulations. The tribulation of deception where Satan is here pretending to be Christ, and then the tribulation where Christ returns and pours out His wrath.

So let’s focus now on the rapture. The word rapture is no where in the bible, and Christ doesn’t mention at all that He will come to secretly take the church away while Satan is here.

So what does rapture mean? Below are some definitions, and it doesn’t sound like anything our Father would take part in!

The word ‘rapture’ itself is from the Latin raptus, and it connotes either apocalyptic spiritual overtones or possessive and physical undertones. The origin of rapture dates to the late 16th century, (directly or via French rapere) from Medieval Latin raptura “seizure,” from the Latin cognate raptus, meaning, “seized and taken, kidnapped by force, snatched hold of and then taken hostage, carried off or away.” In Medieval time, raptus was sometimes used to describe the euphoria soldiers experienced after defeating a foe in battle, then seizing the opponent, and taking him away as captive. Greek raptus virginum Sabinarum is a reference to the Sabine virgins, who were raped and abducted.

There is a literary connection between the words ‘rapture’ and ‘rape.’ To rape someone is to force somebody to have sex. Rape also implies the use of force to violate something, or to treat something in a violent, destructive, or abusive way (e.g. – Rape the land for its resources). During the brutal conquests of the 14th century, Anglo-Norman ‘rapers’ pillaged the land and people, and this term ‘raper’ meant to seize and carry off somebody or something by force (archaic). The word raper is directly from Latin rapere “to seize.”

Below is an outline on the word rapture and it’s meaning, the verses most use to describe the rapture, and the people who started this whole rapture theory:

2. Maintaining the hope of Christ’s return
B. Questioning the elements of pretribulational premillennial “rapture”
1. Inadequate basis for two-phase Second Coming
a. “caught up,” “meet,” descend” same time period

3. escapist mentality, avoidance, withdrawal
4. negative attitude toward society; disengaged
5. inadequate ecclesiology; ghetto mentality; church relegated to tossing out life-savers

Christ will return with His angels in the clouds at the 7th trumpet (see our breakdown of 1 Corinthians 15:50-52 in part one of this teaching https://thefourcarpenters.com/2015/06/29/flood-of-the-end-times-part-1/) and will gather His elect, that is, those who did not worship Satan when he was here pretending to be Christ because they were sealed with the seal of God rather than the mark of the beast, knowing that the true Christ returns at the 7th trump. Remember when Christ returns at the 7th trump you will no longer be in your flesh, corruptible bodies, you will be in your spiritual, incorruptible bodies.

The rapture doctrine is one of Satan’s number one lies that the church spews today, and many are so willing to follow because they don’t get into the word of God themselves. Hollywood has even promoted this doctrine, which should send up a big red flag to let you know that it is a false doctrine. If you believe in the rapture doctrine, you will be taken and swept away in the flood of lies, the flood of the end times. Many of the scriptures these false prophets teach in churches today are the exact scriptures God uses to tell the truth about the return of Christ, but due to the watered down versions of the bible, and the lack of studying of the church goer, most don’t even know what these verses really mean. Let’s look at 1 Thessalonians 4 for example.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

This is the first place most rapture believers go to when trying to prove that there is a rapture, but let’s see what Paul is really trying to say in these verses.

Paul started out this chapter telling the Thessalonians about sin, and how to live right. He then will go on in these verses telling them what happens to their body when they die. He doesn’t want them to be afraid of the unknown, and he doesn’t want them to be ignorant like the heathen. Those who sleep, are those who have already went to be with the Lord. The heathen do not believe this, and therefore have no hope, but we know the bible says in

2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

If you’re a Christian, you know and believe that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and on the third day arose and came out of the tomb. If you do not believe this, Paul classifies you as ignorant, a heathen, that is, a non-believer.

When your flesh body passes, your spirit returns to the Father, it is not in a hole in the ground.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.

Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

It is difficult to see how they made a “rapture theory” out of this, when the subject is, “where are the dead?”

So we see that when one dies, his soul goes immediately to be with our Heavenly Father. If you believe this, you are not heathen.

It only makes sense when looking at verse 16 that those who are already dead, asleep, would rise first. When they passed, their spirits returned to the Father, which is why they would rise first.

This will happen at the last trump, the 7th trump, and THEN Christ will return back to earth. We even have a timeline of events that will take place before this happens. Look at Revelation chapter 11 concerning the 2 witnesses.

We find out what events will occur just prior to this seventh trump sounding, and then when we see these certain events taking place before our eyes, we will know our Lord will return to earth next. Then the trump will sound, and the gathering will take place, and we will be changed from our flesh bodies to our spiritual bodies. And not one day before. Many people have images of massive numbers of people flying away, with all sorts of accidents taking place; however, the Bible doesn’t tell us it will be in that manner. In Revelation 11, it tells us exactly three and a half days prior what will happen, and the whole world will know about it, for it is no hidden mystery. That is when the Antichrist will end his reign by killing God’s two witnesses, and send the world into a three and a half day party of celebration.

Revelation 11:3-15

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

The whole world will know these 2 witnesses as they have been speaking against Satan while he has been pretending to be Christ. They will be partying in the streets when Satan slays them, but they won’t be partying 3 1/2 days later when our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ returns. They will be ashamed, and you will be too if you were looking to fly out of here in the rapture. Those who believe in this rapture doctrine have been given a strong delusion (2 Thes 2:11). They have decided to believe the lies that the false prophets have taught them in churches today, just like Christ warned us in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. They won’t be sealed with the seal of God in their forehead, and therefore they can and will be allowed to be taken by Satan and his lies.

Revelation 9:4-5

And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

(Remember Satan’s time has been shortened on earth to a 5 month period, not a 7 year period as we broke down in our first part of this teaching.)

So what about these clouds in verse 17 of 1 Thessalonians 4???? The “clouds” are in reference to a large gathering of people, as Paul used else where also. While the “air” spoken of here, in the Greek is “breath of life”; we will meet Jesus Christ in our “breath of life bodies, or spiritual bodies”. That is the mystery Paul spoke of in 1 Corinthians 15:50-54.

“Air” in the Greek dictionary is #109, and is the “breath of life”, your “breath of life” body is your soul or spiritual body. The very body that God breathed life into when He made a living soul (Genesis 2:7).

That plainly breaks down 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, and shows that it is not talking about a rapture at all, so now let’s go to a verse in the bible to show how angry it makes God when these false prophets are teaching this rapture, fly away doctrine.

Ezekiel 13:20

20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.

God said, WAKE UP!!!! I am against your false doctrines, pillows, wherewith ye hunt the souls to make them fly. God is against it when you go out to teach the souls of men and women and tell they they are going to fly out of here in the rapture.

Remember in Matthew 24:13 where Jesus tells His disciples, “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” God wants His children to endure until the end. He doesn’t want a wimp that will be in a hurry to get out of here. He already promised to His children that not one hair on their head shall perish (Luke 21:18), so there’s nothing to worry about. God has always provided for His children through times of difficulty. He provided a way through the trials and tribulations. Moses, Noah, and Lot are perfect examples. Now let’s go back to Matthew 24.

Matthew 24:32-24

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Christ told you to LEARN the parable of the fig tree, so it is very important that you do so. We have a deeper teaching on this specific study here: https://thefourcarpenters.com/2015/05/30/the-parable-of-the-fig-tree/ for those who are interested. In short, the fig tree generation started in 1948 when Israel became a nation (Jeremiah 24).

As we know biblically there are 3 generations. A 40 year generation, a 70 year generation, and a 120 year generation, so it makes sense that one of those generations is the time frame that Christ will return. We have already passed the 40 year generation, but the 70 and 120 year generations are still possible. Father has told us in this chapter and many others exactly what signs to watch for so that we would know the things that happen before Christ’s return. We have been given the season, the generation, and the events that will take place, even marking the last three and one half days. That being when the entire world celebrates the murdering of the two witnesses by the antichrist, Satan. When you see the one world order get set into place, and then Satan sitting in the Holy place saying that he is God, you know that the true Christ will be coming soon!

Matthew 24:37-39

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

So now here we are back to where we started…Noah & the flood. If you don’t understand the first flood, then the flood of the end times will be difficult to understand as well. The flood in Genesis was a physical flood, but the flood of the end times is a spiritual flood. If you are not prepared or sealed with God’s word, then you will be taken in Satan’s flood just as those who were eating, drinking, and marrying were taken by the physical flood in Noah’s day. The ark of the end days is not a physical ark, but a spiritual ark…it is the word of God that you need to be standing on. If you aren’t grounded in the true word, you will be swept away in the flood of Satan’s lies. These final days of this earth will be exactly as it was in the days that Noah was on the earth, just prior to his entering into the ark. In part one of this teaching we went over Genesis chapter 6, and Jude 1 to show you what was going on in those days. Fallen angels had left their habitation and came down to mate with women, thus creating hybrids, the nephilim, that is giants. These angels will be returning in the last days, with Satan when he is cast down, and their agenda is the same. That is why you are to keep a covering (Christ) over your head.

So what will people in this last generation be doing at this time? The exact same thing that took place in Noah’s day! If you think that seems far fetched, just look what is going on in the world today. All matter of evil is made good, the supreme court has now made gay marriage legal, they are promoting it in schools, on television, and pretty much everywhere you turn around. What is good is now considered evil, and what is evil is now considered good (Isaiah 5:20).

Churches are actually catering to this type of perversion now, and are calling it okay. The churches have taken on pagan practices and defile God’s true Holy days. Before Christ’s return the whole world will be accepting of these doctrines because they have been indoctrinated by the Kenite’s through their four hidden dynasties (political, economical, religion, education) to believe that there is nothing wrong with what they are doing. Most have been brainwashed since birth with these doctrines, and then continue to spoon feed it to their children, and so on…If you are not one of God’s elect, then when these fallen angels return to earth with Satan, you will follow everything they say and do because you think you are doing what is right.

Just before Jesus Christ returns to earth these angels will be working miracles, with their leader, Satan, and this is possible because they are supernatural, just like Satan is. They are not of flesh or human substance. What happened in Genesis 6 is going to happen again, so make a point of getting to know that chapter.

Just like in Noah’s time, the people of this last generation will be living it up. They are so oblivious to what is actually going on in the world because they are more concerned about pleasing themselves. Their jobs, cars, homes, friends, social life, television, sports, reality tv, video games, vacations, partying, ect. keep them too busy to focus on the word of God, and the signs God told us to watch for. They were too busy to heed the warning from their loved ones who wanted to make sure they weren’t deceived. They laughed and made fun of Noah for building an ark, and they will make fun of you when you try to warn them of the false Christ returning first. God told us in Ezekiel 33 to warn them though, so their blood would not be on our hands, if they decide not to heed the warning, it’s on their own hands.

During the reign of the Antichrist on earth, your family and friends, will think of you as some sort of nut that has lost mind. They will be so convinced that Satan is the true Christ, if it were possible they would kill you for him, but it will not be possible. Then the seventh trumpet shall sound, and the entire earth will see Christ coming in all His glory, with all the saints, and terror will streak through their minds, for they will see and know how they have been deceived.

Matthew 24:40-44

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

These are some more verses many use to confirm in their mind that there is a rapture. Those who teach that they want to be the first one taken do so in ignorance. The ones taken in the flood of Noah’s time were those who were not on the ark, and those taken in this last generation will be those taken by Satan’s lies. They won’t remain working in the field until the true Christ comes.

So what can you do to make sure you aren’t taken by Satan and his flood of lies? You need to be on watch. If you are on watch then you will see the 7 events Christ told you of in this very chapter of Matthew 24, so that you can recognize the season that He will return. Paul tells us about this in 1 Thessalonians 5.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-4

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Why would Christ come like a thief??? Because those worshiping the false Christ, Satan won’t be on watch since they believe Satan to be Christ. Those who have read and studied God’s word, and have not put their trust in man, but in God will know what His word says about the return of Christ, and won’t be taken like a thief in the night.

You will not know the instant, but you can know the hour. The hour Christ is talking about is the hour of temptation (Revelation 17:12). This is done by recognizing the antichrist at his arrival, and his army of fallen angels as well as knowing when the one world system totally comes into being. That one world system is the beast, and it will receive a deadly wound. That is when Satan and his angels will put it all back together.

Revelation 13:3-4

And I saw one of his heads (think of this as heads of government) as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

And they worshipped the dragon (Satan) which gave power unto the beast (the one world government): and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Why wouldn’t you be able to make war with him? Because it is a political system, a world political system, and it wouldn’t be possible to make war with a one world political system. Nor would anyone try. We already see something similar to this right now with the United Nations. Celebs, doctors, humanitarians, ect. do all kinds of things for the U.N. while the U.N. get’s all the praise. After all, they help out worldwide with medication, food, aid, protection, ect. This is very similar to what the one world government will be like!

God’s elect will escape from that hour of temptation, for they don’t find Satan and his system tempting to sell their soul for. They see right through his lies, and they find him to be an abomination!

Matthew 24:45-51

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Those who continued working in the field, planting seeds, and working for God are those wise and faithful servants. The wise servant over the household of Christ, of the fellow Christians, is the one that gives the members of the body of Christ the meat of His word, and not milk. That is God’s word taught in full, and meat in due season, this season, the season of the parable of the fig tree, when these events will come to pass. Milk will not sustain a person physically or spiritually, but meat will. We know that in the last days, the famine in the land is for the word of God (Amos 8:11), so it is these servants of Christ who try to prevent the body of Christ from starving by teaching the TRUE, meat filled, word of God!

Christ is going to bless those who are still working in the field when He returns. Those who are found working will be those who teach and rule in the millennium. Ezekiel 39-48 go over exactly what will be going on during the millennium, and they are very important chapters to know and understand.

The last few verses of Matthew 24 are pertaining to those who would say things like, “Oh, we’ve been hearing about the end times for thousands of years, and nothing has happened.” They mock God, and continue to live their life pleasing themselves rather than God. They laugh at the ones who would warn them of what is actually going on in the world. They scoff at those who try to share truth with them. They say, “oh that’s just a conspiracy theory” when you try to point out what the Kenite’s are doing through their four hidden dynasties.

Jesus states right here in verse 51, what will happen to those who don’t take the warning of what is to come seriously. “And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites”, those Kenite’s, the scribes and Pharisees that also led God’s people into false doctrine, and ripped them off in Jesus’ day. Where they go, and what happens to them, is what will happen to you!!!

It will be so sad the day when Christ returns and sees those who said they were Christians, but they whored after Satan when he was here pretending to be Christ. They nursed along his doctrine and his deeds. They left their first husband. They did not remain spiritual virgins because they hopped right in bed with the antichrist. They will be so ashamed when Christ returns for what they have done.

You don’t have to be ashamed if you truly put God first, get into His word, so that you may have eyes to see and ears to hear. If you love Him, you will do this! That is all He wants, your love (Hosea 6:6). This teaching was to warn those who have already been “caught up” in the lies and false doctrines that are being preached at the pulpit today. If you study God’s word yourself, He can remove the blinders from your eyes so that you can see His truth. The peace of mind that comes with knowing His true word, and how He will protect you is much better than a sweet lie of flying away in a false rapture. If you are blessed enough to already know this truth, please make sure you are planting seeds with others. It’s not always a popular thing to talk about, but God can water that little seed, and you can watch it grow!

“Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” -Hillary Clinton

Eugenics Definition:

The study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics)

Psalm 127:3Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”

There is no greater gift than that of having a child. Father even says so in His word, it is a reward. So then why are so many women and young girls eager to get an abortion when they find out they are pregnant? Part of the reason is the agenda that has been increasing for more than half a century now, although abortion has been around for almost 200 years. The promotion of abortion was initially started to “weed out the undesirable,” and it is also a way these corporations like Planned Parenthood make millions each year.

Abortion is taught in schools as a means of birth control. Young girls in some states do not even need to notify their parents if they are getting one, and the abortion pill, Plan B is able to be obtained over the counter. There are even many politicians who see it as a right as it is the woman’s body, and she can choose what she wants to do with it. That is how they promote it, but what about the right of the child who God gave to the woman? The problem here is that most abortion clinics, hospitals, and schools teach that it is not a baby or child until it is actually born. Until then it is just tissue and cells. They tell you that the baby doesn’t feel pain although they know it does given how even a small 10 week old baby fights for it’s life as the tools they use to terminate the pregnancy enter the woman’s body, and the baby tries to get away from the instruments. This has even been seen on guided ultrasound abortions. The way in which they do the abortions is so horrible, and I can’t imagine how our Heavenly Father must feel when He sees these women who He gave these blessed innocent children to decide to have it ripped from their womb. Some young women even glorify it. One woman went in last year and had a video documentation of her abortion, talking about how amazing it was. This is pure evil!!!!

This is the reality of an abortion, It Is MURDER!!!!!

Recently Hillary Clinton led a keynote address at the 2015 Women in the World Summit. In it Hillary state: “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton said.

“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” she explained. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”

Below is a video from the 2015 Women of the World Summit where you will here her talk about her extreme pro-abortion views. This is the agenda of eugenicists who would like to see a major decrease in the world population, but they always make it seem to their audience that they view of being pro-abortion is something that is for women’s rights. That women have the right to choose what they do to their body, not the government. This is a false sense of freedom and they have a much darker reason for promoting this.

Here is an article from April 24, 2015 discussing this topic:

http://hotair.com/archives/2015/04/24/hillary-deep-seated-religious-beliefs-have-to-be-changed-for-abortion/

David Gibson suggested this might be Hillary Clinton’s “clinging to guns and religion” moment, and he may be right — assuming she survives the corruption scandals in the first place. Last night, Hillary told the Women in the World Summit that the path to Abortion Nirvana will only open up by changing religion, culture, and values to accommodate it:

In one sense, this shows just how extreme the pro-abortion caucus actually is. As Hillary admits here — albeit unwittingly — the at-will destruction of the unborn goes against religious beliefs, long-held cultural values, and the structural “biases” that exist to recognize the value of human life. That’s what the “clump of cells” fallacy has to overcome, and as Hillary and the Left have discovered, it’s a tall order. And it’s not just abortion, but also same-sex marriage and forced participation in it, euthanasia dressed up as “right to die” movements, and the rest.

Politically speaking, this kind of hostility to religion plays well … among the “safe space,” “trigger warning” crowd. Running for president on the basis of promising to use the power of government to change “deep seated cultural codes [and] religious beliefs” might be the most honest progressive slogan in history, but it’s not going to endear Hillary to the people who got offended by Barack Obama’s “bitterly clinging” comments — which she exploited in 2008 to paint herself as the friend of those denizens of middle America. Those voters will now see the real Hillary Clinton, the one who dismisses their faith just the same as Obama did, and this time publicly rather than in a private fundraiser.

What does Hillary do to counter this? I’m waiting to hear If you like your religion, you can keep your religion. That will fit the progressive pattern well.

Update: Matt Lewis writes that “Hillary lets the veil slip,” irony apparently intended:

Regardless of how one feels about gay rights or the abortion debate, it is interesting that liberals are finally getting around to openly confessing something all of us sort of know — yet few will say out loud: Achieving a liberal social agenda will necessarily require first extirpating many “deep-seated” Christian values and tenets.

We’ve been pointing this out since well before the “bitter clinger” comments from Obama. But the masks — excuse me, veils — are indeed coming off. Progressivism is indeed a jealous idol, one that does not tolerate a God before it.

When Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are stating that we need to change our religious views, they are asking you to deny Christ. What does God’s word say about this?

Matthew 10:32-33

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

It is also not your body. It is God’s body that you are doing this to. He is the one that created you, and the child in you, and you can’t just choose whether or not you want to keep the baby that He gave you. If you don’t want a baby, then you shouldn’t be doing things that cause a baby to be born. That’s why He has saved sex to be preserved by marriage. In the incident of rape, it is still not your body to do what you want with. If you don’t want the child, there are so many people who would love to have a child. Don’t punish a child because you were raped, or had sex out of marriage and have decided you’re not ready.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Abortion is murder, and it makes God angry to know that these people are convincing young women that it is okay to have an abortion because it’s not a baby yet, it’s just a ball of cells. Life does not begin when the child is born, life begins at conception, and Luke chapter 1 is a perfect example of this. This chapter is discussing the conception of John the baptist as well as the conception of Jesus Christ. When Mary conceives, the very day she conceives Jesus and she visits her cousin Elisabeth, and the baby in Elisabeth’s womb leaps because it knows that the Holy Spirit is now dwelling on earth through Jesus Christ.

Luke 1:26-42:

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Take a look at verse 41. The moment that Mary greeted Elisabeth, Elisabeth knew instantly that Mary had conceived the holy Child. The Holy Spirit entered into Elisabeth, and into the babe John the Baptist that was six months along in Elisabeth’s womb. So when does the Spirit of God enter the babe? The soul and spirit of a child enters the embryo at conception; of course. This is our documentation that the soul of a child enters at conception, as Mary has just conceived, while John the Baptist is six months along, yet unborn in the womb and can sense the Holy Spirit’s presence in the Christ Child just conceived.

Now that we’ve established that the bible shows life begins at conception, let’s show in scripture how angry God is when people decide to murder their children.

Ezekiel 16:20-23:

20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.

23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord God😉

Jeremiah 19:5

They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:

Deuteronomy 18:10

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

Deuteronomy 27:25

25 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.

Amos 1:13

13 Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:

Those are just a few of the many scriptures God uses to point out that He is against those who would murder or sacrifice their children.

God has a perfect design and plan for each and every individual that is born. He knew us before we were even in our mother’s womb. There are many scriptures where God tells us how he knew us before we were born. There was an age before this flesh age where we were all with our Heavenly Father, and when we leave this flesh, we return to our Heavenly Father. Satan has been trying since the beginning to destroy the bloodline of Christ, and to kill His children. There are many stories in the bible where people offered their children up to other god’s. The god they were offering them up to was Satan. He may use different tactics and techniques today, but he has the same agenda.

Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Romans 8:29

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Ephesians 1:4-5

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Psalm 139:13-14

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Isaiah 44:2

Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

Below is a video we made exposing some of the politicians behind this, as this is part of the political dynasty. It also exposes Planned Parenthood and shows you how far they are willing to go to make a dollar.

Birth Control KILLS babies:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/all-the-pro-life-facts-about-hormonal-contraception-that-you-probably-dont

All the pro-life facts about hormonal contraception (that you probably don’t want to hear) – Part I

I’m just going to go ahead and let you know that this article is going to probably anger a lot of people. But I am a truth teller, and sometimes truth hurts. And as pro-lifers, this is information that we simply can’t ignore…no matter how much it affects our current lifestyle.

This is the first of a three-part piece on hormonal contraception. I hope you will read all three parts and share this factual information with people who may not know these truths.

The pro-life mantra has always been “Life Begins at Conception.” But do we really believe that? Do we really believe that life begins at that amazing moment of conception? Or do we actually believe that it begins at implantation? You may think that is a silly question. ‘Of COURSE pro-lifers believe that life begins at conception! Hello?! We have been saying that for years!’

Well, then here’s the kicker. If you believe that life begins at conception, then you MUST unequivocally oppose hormonal contraception. Here’s why. Hormonal contraception does not always prevent ovulation. In fact, many studies done by the birth control manufacturers themselves state that only about half of women using their methods actually cease ovulating.

Hmm. So how do these methods work if you are still ovulating at least half the time? Simple. These methods have a backup plan. Hormonal methods also work to thin the lining of the endometrium (uterine wall) so that a newly conceived human being (life begins at conception, right?) cannot implant on the uterine wall. Because the baby has nowhere to implant, they are spontaneously aborted.

Don’t believe me? View the screenshots of the information that comes directly from the manufacturers, or follow the links:

Will sexually active women abort their babies every cycle? Probably not. But you may. You don’t know, and that’s the scary (and morally troubling) part.

Let’s say that a demolition company was going to use a wrecking ball to destroy an old school. When the supervisor of the company asks the principal if they made sure to clear the building, the principal says, “We most likely did. We aren’t 100% sure, but we are pretty confident.” Would that be acceptable? Would you be willing to push that button that releases that wrecking ball? Would you be willing to risk that there may or may not be life in that building?

If you take hormonal contraception and you are sexually active, then you are releasing that wrecking ball every month.

Luckily, there is a way to space pregnancies without the potential loss of life. It’s called Natural Family Planning. There are MANY different methods and sometimes it takes trying a couple before you find the right one for you. I recommend visiting www.iusenfp.com to explore the various methods out there.

And just in case you are one of those people who say, “I have to take birth control because of xyz health condition,” you actually don’t. I’m going to write another article on this, but I will tell you that by taking birth control, you are masking the problem, not solving it. NFP and NaPro technology can actually FIX the problem. You can find more information at www.fertilitycare.org.

Ladies, we have been force fed the idea that we must fix our unbroken fertility…and that our fertility solely falls on our shoulders. But here’s the reality. Fertility should be shared between a husband and wife. You don’t get pregnant on your own. NFP is a beautiful way to help you share in that gift. It’s worth your time to check it out.

Teaching the youth to support Planned Parenthood

Aborted Fetuses in foods and vaccines:

For those who still want to support Planned Parenthood and their money making eugenics program after reading and seeing all this information, here is a few quotes from the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger and a full interview from 1957.

After all the sadness of this teaching we thought we would leave it with a positive ending:

Flood Of The End Times Part 1

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Due to the length and detail of this study, it will be in 2 parts:

Genesis 9:11-15 KJV

11 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

flood end times

If you’ve turned on the news at all in the past few months you may have seen quite a bit of news pertaining to floods here in the U.S. Floods happen worldwide each year, and they have for thousands of years, but God promised He would never destroy the Earth with water again (Genesis 9:11-15). As devastating as these floods are, and as deadly as some may be, there is a bigger flood that is coming in the end times, and it will cause death to the spiritual body for those that get taken in it.

As we know in the bible there were two major floods. The katabole (Genesis 1:2, Jeremiah 4) and Noah’s flood (Genesis 5:32-10:1). We will be doing a deeper study on the katabole at a later date, but today were mainly going to focus on Noah’s flood because it relates to the flood of the end times.

Matthew 24:37-39 KJV

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

There were many evil things going on in Noah’s time, Genesis 6, and Jude 1 tell you exactly what was taking place, and why God told Noah to build an ark. The fallen angels came down to mate with daughters of men which is where the giants (nephilim/geber) came from.

Genesis 6:2-4 KJV

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Jude 1:4-6 KJV

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

God was angered that this took place in the same way he was angered about the sin going on in Sodom and Gomorrah, and it is also compared to the flood of Noah and what will be taking place in the end times.

Luke 17:28-30 KJV

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

So the earth in the days of Noah was full of people who rejected God and walked after their own flesh and served their own interests. And the earth was full of violence. And what about during Lot’s day in Sodom? God’s Word says that the people of Sodom had given themselves over to sexual fornication and ‘strange flesh’, which is homosexuality. So Jesus is saying that the world in the end times would ‘mirror’ what it was like in the days of Noah and Lot. Do we have a world like that today? Absolutely!

Not only do we live in a world full of violence and sexual immorality, including homosexuality. These things have become the ‘norm’ with violence and sexual immorality being turned into ENTERTAINMENT!!!

Things were so bad back in Noah’s day that God even repented of making mankind on earth. We cannot imagine the anguish of our loving Heavenly Father when He looked down upon the earth and saw no one (except Noah & his family) living a Godly life, and I would imagine His heart is saddened by what is going on in the world today.

Genesis 6:5-6 KJV

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

So now that we have established why there was a flood in Noah’s time, let’s move on to the flood that will take place in the end times, the very times we are living in right now. The flood of the end times is not a physical flood, but a spiritual flood. We are building up to this flood right now with all the false doctrine that is being preached in churches today. The flood of the end times is a flood of lies, the lies Satan (the antichrist, the son of perdition) will use to get the whole world to whore after him.

Revelation 12:9 KJV

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Why will the whole world be deceived? Because Satan (antichrist) will be here on earth pretending that he is God.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJV

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Satan will be here at the 6th trump with his fallen angels, and he will deceive the whole world into believing that he is Christ. The only ones who won’t fall for his flood of lies are God’s elect, those who know the false Christ comes first. They know the true Christ does not return until the 7th trump.

1 Corinthians 15:50-52 KJV

50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Did you notice what it said in verse 52? It said at the LAST trump, the furthest one out, that is the 7th trump. Christ will return at the 7th trump. Satan comes at the 6th trump. Most churches today teach that Christ comes first to “rapture” Christians out of here, but that is part of the flood of lies that Satan wants everyone believing. That is why the whole world will be deceived. They are looking for Christ to come first instead of Satan, and it does not say that anywhere in God’s word. So what will happen when Christ returns at the 7th trump? We will all be changed into our incorruptible bodies, that is our spiritual bodies. We have 2 bodies, the flesh body, and the spirit body. When we put on the incorruptible, we are no longer in our flesh body.

1 Corinthians 15:40 KJV

40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

The celestial body is your spiritual body, and the terrestrial body is your flesh body. Paul is telling you in this verse that within what you call “self”, you have two bodies, an earthly body that will die off and return to the elements that it is made of, and a heavenly body or soul that at the death of the earthly body returns to the heavenly realm or dimension that it came from. Each of the bodies have their own glory or dignity and honor.

Jesus tells his disciples in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 exactly what to expect before His return.

Matthew 24:1-2

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

The disciples were pointing out how magnificent the buildings were, and Jesus is letting them know that when He returns, there won’t be one stone left standing there. All these stones, every last one of them will be turned to dust! God tells us in Zechariah 14 exactly what this will be like on the day the our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ returns.

Matthew 24:3-5

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

The disciples are asking Jesus what to expect before Christ returns, what signs to watch for so they know when His return is near. The first thing Christ warns them of is that there will be people who come along and try to deceive followers of Christ. Satan was a scripture lawyer, and knew scripture very well, but he would always twist it just a little at the end trying to deceive. There are many pastors and preachers doing this very same thing today by teaching false doctrine, part of the flood of lies in the end time. Very rarely will you find a church that teaches the true word of God chapter by chapter, verse by verse. In this chapter Jesus will be laying out for you the 7 events/7 seals that we all need to be watching for. So what can you do to keep yourself from being deceived? You need to get into the word yourself, trust in no man. There is no way to know what the word really says or means unless you get into the word of God on your own. Make sure you are also looking in the Strong’s Concordance so you can look up the original Greek and Hebrew to help you understand God’s word better.

Matthew 24:6-8

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Throughout history there have been many wars, but the last 100 years there have been wars literally all over the world. Now with new technology you don’t even have to send troops to a country to attack. It can be done at the push of a button. There have also been rumors of wars, lies about things that never happened, and false flag events created to stir up the people. There have been more earthquakes and disease than there ever was before. The word sorrows here means birth pangs. The word is used only here and in Mark 8, and marks the beginning of the travail of childbirth. The number in Strong’s Dictionary is 5604, and this is important, because it reflects the intervals between the events of the signs of the end times. It’s just like a woman in labor. The closer she gets to delivering the child, the closer together the labor pains or contractions get. The closer we get to Christ’s return, the closer together the events that take place before His return happen.

Matthew 24:9-14

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Because you will know that the Antichrist, Satan, is not Christ, and you will be siding with God, and the two witnesses, your family, friends, ect. will deliver you up to death. Death is one of Satan’s names (Hebrews 2:14) and you will be delivered up to him to be a testimony for Christ (Mark 13:9). They won’t be killing anyone at this time. You wouldn’t be able to speak against Satan and for Christ if you are killed. You will be browbeaten at this time because everyone in the world is deceived into believing that Satan is Christ, and they hate you because you speak against him. Satan also won’t be killing anyone because he is trying to be like Christ. No one would believe he is Christ if he was going around slaying people.

Luke 21:12-18

12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.

13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.

18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

Notice what it said in Luke 21:18….”But there shall not an hair of your head perish.” God always protects His own. This is the destiny of God’s elect. During this time that they are delivered up, the Holy Spirit will speak through them. This is when the TRUE word of God will be spoken. Most churches today are teaching traditions of men that make void the word of God. They teach you that you don’t need to know the book of revelation because you will be flying out of here in the “rapture.” They don’t tell you what actually happened in the garden of Eden. They just let everyone believe that Eve ate an apple and that was the sin. They celebrate and teach pagan holidays instead of God’s Holy days. The preachers teaching these things are false prophets. Many think that through satellites and internet that the word has been preached all over the world, but it hasn’t because it has not been the true word of God. When the Saints are delivered up and the Holy Spirit speaks through them like it spoke through the apostles on Pentecost, everyone in every nation will understand what they say in their own language down to the very dialect. This is when they will know the TRUE word of God. Even the gainsayers will believe.

Matthew 24:15-18

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

Verse 15 is speaking about Daniel 9:27. The “abomination” is when Satan stands in Jerusalem, and proclaims that he is God, and the world believes it.

Daniel 9:27

27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The “desolation” is an incorrect translation into the English, which should read “desolator”, and Satan is the desolator that will make the claim that he is God, the true Christ. “Desolation” is a condition, in the Hebrew manuscripts it is written, “On the wings of the desolator,” this is not a condition, but a entity, a person. It is through this individual, Satan that the abomination shall come from. It is the desolator, Satan that shall cause all but the sealed of God, to become desolate, or deceived.

Jesus then tells the disciples that when Satan, the Antichrist is here that you should flee to the mountains. Satan only has a short time here, and Jesus lets them know that when Satan is here pretending to be Christ that you won’t have to worry about packing anything or taking anything with you.

Matthew 24:19-22

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

It’s not talking about those who actually have children or are nursing children during Satan’s reign as Antichrist in verse 19. This woe is for those who are spiritually in bed with Satan, that is, they are no longer spiritual virgins for Christ because they are whoring after Antichrist and nursing along his works. They have left their first husband (Christ) and they are worshiping Satan because they believe him to be Christ.

Praying that your flight is not in the winter means that you don’t want to be harvested in the winter, or out of season. It is important for you to know the season that Christ will return. No one knows the day or the hour, but we should all know the season which is why Jesus gave us these signs to look for.

There are 2 tribulations, and this one that is spoken of is the tribulation of Satan, the one who will deceive the whole world, and it will be a great tribulation! The book of Joel tells us what will take place during this tribulation. This tribulation of Satan has been shortened for the sake of the elect, and we know by reading Revelation 9:5 & 9:10 that this time was shortened to a 5 month period.

Revelation 9:5

And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

Revelation 9:10

10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

This also relates to the flood in Noah’s time as it was 5 months as well:

Genesis 8:3

And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

Matthew 24:24-28

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Satan is a supernatural being, and because of this he will be able to perform miracles. This is how he will be able to deceive so many.

Revelation 13:13

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Because everyone will be deceived and believe he is Christ, they will be saying, “he is here.” We pointed out earlier in this teaching what will happen when Christ returns at the last trump. You will be in your spiritual body, so as long as you are in your flesh body still, know that the true Christ has not returned. When Christ truly returns, EVERYONE will know it, and it will happen very quickly just like a strike of lightening.

Eagles in verse 28 should actually be translated to vultures, and what do vultures do? They are scavengers, they prey on the dead. This verse is speaking of those that are spiritually dead, and these vultures, Satan’s vultures will be feeding on the spiritually dead.

Christian Persecution Around The World Including America

persecution

Posted a new video on our Youtube channel today on Christian persecution. It is a very eye opening look at Christian persecution around the world, including the United States. There are things in this video you won’t hear in the mainstream media. Please watch and share to get the word out!

Matthew 10:22 (KJV) And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

John 15:21 (KJV) But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Matthew 5:11 (KJV) Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Always remember, we are not to be fearful of these things. When Satan is here as antichrist, he will not be slaying anyone. He will bring peace, and offer you whatever you want. There will be a chicken in every pot. His job as antichrist is to fool the whole world so that they believe he is Christ. Unfortunately, most will believe this, and therefore will follow him. (revelation 12:9) We know that there are many being killed in this flesh right now simply because they are Christians. When Satan is here to rule and reign as antichrist, you will be browbeaten and persecuted because you know that he is not Christ. Satan comes at the 6th trump, but the true Christ will not be here until the 7th trump. Satan=666 Christ=777 Those who know that it is Satan here pretending to be Christ will be delivered up to death (one of Satan’s names) and will testify for Christ against Satan and will be persecuted. Those who will be delivered up have no reason to be afraid, this is their destiny and purpose!
Luke 21:12-15 (KJV)
12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Earthquakes, Volcanoes, & Global Unrest

This is a very important video talking about all the earthquakes, volcanoes, and global unrest that has been going on. Watchmen need to be watching for these things. There was a 6.8 earthquake in Alaska yesterday, and a 7.8 in Japan this morning. This video will go into greater detail, and warn you of some possible earthquakes that might be coming to North America, Asia, and Europe.

News article about Alaskan earthquake:

The US Geological Survey says there has been a 6.8 magnitude off the southwest coast of Alaska on Friday. The epicenter is 110km south-southeast of Ugashik with the center estimated at 33km deep.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said that no tsunami was expected. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

On May 25, there was another quake in Alaska’s Fox Islands region magnitude 4.8. It occurred some 96km southwest of Nikolski settlement on Umnak Island and was 38km deep.

With over 100 volcanoes and volcanic fields, Alaska is a seismically-active territory where earthquakes are commonplace. The largest magnitude earthquake in mainland Alaska occurred on October 29, 1968. It registered magnitude 6.5 and was located southeast of the village of Rampart, on the Yukon River.

8.5 earthquake hits Japan this morning:

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/japan-earthquake-large-very-deep-temblor-strikes-offshore-n367006

TOKYO — A powerful and extremely deep earthquake struck near remote Japanese islands and shook Tokyo on Saturday, but officials said there was no danger of a tsunami, and no injuries or damage were immediately reported.

The magnitude-8.5 offshore earthquake struck off the Ogasawara islands at 8:24 p.m. at a depth of 370 miles, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.8 and a depth of 421 miles.

Public broadcaster NHK said there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

But the temblor was powerful enough to rattle large parts of Japan’s main island of Honshu. Buildings swayed in Tokyo — about 620 miles north of the Ogasawara islands — and stopped some train services in the city. There were reports that parts of the capital were without power.

The meteorological agency did not issue a tsunami warning because the quake struck so far beneath the earth’s surface. Deep offshore earthquakes usually do not cause tsunamis, and generally cause less damage than shallow ones.

Volcano Erupts On Japan Island Kuchinoerabujima:

http://news.sky.com/story/1492587/volcano-erupts-on-japan-island-kuchinoerabujima

A volcano has erupted on the remote island of Kuchinoerabujima in southern Japan.

Plumes of black smoke were seen rising high into the sky as lava flowed down the side of Mount Sindake to reach the ocean.

A coastguard vessel has been sent to evacuate the 140 residents – whose only access to the outside world is by boat – and some flights have been diverted from the island which is around 1,000km (621 miles) southwest of Tokyo.

The volcano also erupted last summer, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported, adding that the area where lava was found has been out of bounds since.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said officials would do everything to look after the islanders.

“We will expend all our efforts to ensure the safety of all the residents of the island,” Mr Abe said.

The island is about 160 km (100 miles) south of Kyushu Electric Power’s Sendai nuclear plant on Japan’s southernmost main island of Kyushu.

The power company was given the final go-ahead on Wednesday to restart its plant following the 2011 Fukushima disaster, but it is not clear if the volcanic eruption will affect its plans.

Japan is one of the world’s most seismically active nations and there has been a rise in volcanic activity in recent weeks.

More than 60 people were killed in September last year when Mount Ontake in central Japan erupted without warning while packed with hikers.
