WWJD. These “What Would Jesus Do?” bracelets used to be quite popular with some Christians. They were used to start up a conversation with others about Jesus. But to do so, it’s important that we know who the Christ of the Scriptures is rather than the Christ of the cults. Which Jesus saves? [1]

To see our world and all that is in it more clearly, many of us need eye glasses. To see inside of our bodies, Doctors need X-ray equipment. To see things far away we need telescopes and microscopes to see very small things. To see into the future we need to turn to God’s infallible Word and interpret Bible prophecy [2] normally, historically, grammatically, and contextually as we do the rest of the Scriptures. One of the main reasons why we should believe the Bible is because of fulfilled prophecy. (See our Bible Study Book Marker & Dispensations Chart on our website.) [3]

But to see into the souls of people, with all their pains and struggles, we need “Jesus Glasses.” He saw people in their lost condition like sheep without a Shepherd. He offered Himself to them as their promised Messiah, but they didn’t recognize Him for Who He really was (John 1:11, 12). They wanted a political Deliverer, not a spiritual Savior from their sins. In fact, did you know that He turned down their offer to make Him their King because it would have been on their terms, not on God’s terms (John 6:15, 60-66; See Psalm 2)?

Just before He went to the cross to die for our sins…and rise again bodily on the third day, [4] Jesus looked over the city of Jerusalem and wept for the people (Jews) who rejected Him. He said, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! ‘See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’” (Matthew 23:37-39). This will happen at the end of the “Seven Years of Tribulation” or “The Time of Jacob’s [Israel’s] Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7). [5] Believe it or not, these days seem to be just around the corner.

Questions

If you’re a Christian, when was the last time you wept over lost people, who are headed for the lake of fire to suffer forever with the devil and his angels/demons (Matthew 25:41, 46; Revelation 21:8)? Do you share the clear Gospel [4] with them on a regular basis or leave that up to the “professionals”? While most people will reject God’s offer of salvation because they love darkness rather than light (John 3:19), some will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior (John 1:12; 3:16, 18).

As He promised, He will return for His Body, the true Church (John 14:1-3), when all whom the Father has given to Him have come to Him and been saved, and have done some praiseworthy works (John 6:37, 44; 1 Corinthians 4:5). Are you ready for this event? Perhaps today!

Action Steps

If you haven’t placed your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, Who died for your sins, was buried, and Who rose again bodily on the third day, now is the time to do so. [4] There are no second chances to be saved from the lake of fire once you die physically (2 Corinthians 6:2; James 4:14; Hebrews 9:27). The Scriptures don’t teach reincarnation or the annihilation of the wicked dead as some cults teach.

Rather than living if fear during these uncertain days, Christians can/should keep looking up while anticipating and loving the imminent arrival of Christ. If we, as believers, do this, we will receive the “Crown of Righteousness” (2 Timothy 4:8). We can also earn the “Crown of Rejoicing” for pointing people to Christ (1 Thessalonians 2:19, 20).

Whether we eat or drink, or whatever we do, our primary goal in life should be to glorify God by making Him known to others (1 Corinthians 10:31). Are you doing this? If not, why?

[5] The Order of Coming Events https://kelseypeach.wordpress.com/2014/01/30/the-order-of-coming-events/

Suppose, instead of giving everyone a few hundred dollars, our government decided to give all of us a million dollars each. Possible motive – to buy our votes to keep them in power. (After all, they just print it up anyway.) If this happened, would you quit your job? What if everyone else quit their jobs? Who would manufacture things or wait on you at the stores from which you’d like to purchase things – grocery stores, drug stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc? What if you couldn’t get a needed part for your refrigerator, stove, furnace, or automobile to keep it running?

What if the money came to you in the form of a debit card that you alone could use after properly identifying yourself? Suppose this card allowed you to buy only specific goods and services at selected stores depending on your “credit score” that the government would decide as they do in China? (By the way, the late David Rockefeller thought China had a desirable form of government even though millions of Chinese people were murdered by their leader Mao. Many others also think this way.) [1]

Left Behind. This all sounds a lot like what the Bible says will happen to the people who will be “left behind” at the time of the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) and who will go into the Seven Years of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 6-19).

Mark Of The Beast. They will need to take it to buy or sell things. “He [Antichrist] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 12:13-16).

Refuse It. Those who take it are doomed forever. But some people won’t take his mark and will suffer greatly and many of them will die. Believers (whether Jews or non-Jews) who survive to the end of the seven year Tribulation will be the ones who enter into Christ’s millennial kingdom to repopulate the earth (Matthew 24:13; 25:13).

Power Grid. There is a real possibility that it could go down from an EMP attack (electromagnetic pulse), solar flares, a terrorist attack, cyberterrorism or cyber warfare, a nuclear plant explosion, or over-regulation​. [2] Commerce would cease. Communications would shut down.  Transport networks would grind to a halt. There would be no running water.  Grocery stores and pharmacies would be stripped bare. Satellite navigation devices would be useless. [3]

Not The U.S.? We don’t like to think that this scenario could possibly happen in our country – which some people think is a “Christian nation.” Really? Just think of all the innocent babies that have been brutally aborted in our country alone since 1973. Over 60 million of them.

Ungrateful Atheists. God often gives up on the arrogant individuals and nations who fail to acknowledge His existence (the atheists, the practical atheists who are religious but who act like God doesn’t exist, and the agnostics who don’t know or care if God exists). Neither are they thankful to Him for His many blessings. They are prone to engage in uncleanness, vile passions, and abominable activities and lawless behavior (Romans 1:18-32). God’s Word tells us that “The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17; See Psalm 2).

Wicked Behavior. The Scriptures tell us that it will intensify just before the Lord Jesus Christ comes back to set up His millennial kingdom on/over the earth (2 Timothy 3:1-5; Revelation 20:4). “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all” (Luke 17:26, 27). “… the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually…So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth” (Genesis 6:5, 12). [4]

Judgment Day. It’s coming for all of us (Hebrews 9:27). The believer’s works will be judged by Christ (John 5:22; 2 Timothy 4:8) to determine his/her degree of rewards and enjoyment in heaven, while the unbeliever’s works will be judged to determine his/her degree of punishment and torment in the lake of fire forever (1 Corinthians 3:11-15; Revelation 20:11-15). God desires that all men and women, boys and girls be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4). Christ died for the sins of the whole world but most people won’t accept God’s offer of salvation through Christ (1 Timothy 4:10; 1 John 2:2).

Destiny. Our spending eternity with God in heaven or in the lake of fire with the devil and his angels/demons, will be determined by our faith or lack of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for our sins, was buried, and Who rose again bodily on the third day. [5]

Category. In which category do you fit – Believer or unbeliever? You can be saved/delivered from the lake of fire and enter heaven instead by one simple act of faith in Christ alone, apart from your good works (Colossians 1:13; Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5).

It is not merely the extent of the catastrophe that dwarfs earlier estimates, but also the manner in which many people died: between two and three million victims were tortured to death or summarily killed, often for the slightest infraction.”

Scripture taken from the New King James Version. Copyright 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.  

Used by Permission. All rights reserved.

Sure? Why? Lose?

I enjoy talking to people – that is, to most people. I’ve met a lot of interesting people in my life and have some long time friends (perhaps acquaintances) with whom I like to stay in touch.

Concern. One of my main concerns for others has to do with their eternal destiny. I believe that people, once they have been conceived in the womb, live forever somewhere. We all have everlasting existence, but we don’t all have “eternal life” – God’s quality of life until we’ve been “born again from above” (John 3:3-7, 16, 36; 5:24; See 2 Peter 1:3, 4).

Gospel. This comes to us when we place our faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, Who died for our sins, was buried, and Who rose again bodily on the third day (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). This is the Gospel that is the power of God unto our salvation. (Romans 1:16, 17).

Real Places. The Scriptures teach the reality of heaven and hell. Knowing what it says about hell, I wouldn’t even wish it on my worst enemy. We’re told that it is a place of outer darkness, where there is weeping and the gnashing of teeth that lasts forever (Matthew 23:41; 25:41, 46). Unbelievers are not annihilated or reincarnated at the time of their death. The devil would want people to believe this lie.

Questions. After talking with people to learn more about them, I try to steer the conversation around to spiritual things if I can. I like to ask three important questions to find out what they believe:

SURE? Are you absolutely sure that if you died today you’d immediately go to heaven? Then I wait for their answer. Most people aren’t sure but hope they will get there eventually.

WHY? Why should God let you into His heaven? The usual answer is “I live a pretty good life and I try to keep the commandments.” Few people say, “He shouldn’t let me into heaven, but I’ve trusted in Christ through the Gospel and know and believe that He has saved me by His grace.”

LOSE? If someone gives a relatively good answer to the previous question, I like to ask, “Is there anything you could do or fail to do that would cause you to lose your salvation? Some people lack assurance of their salvation. Others demonstrate that they aren’t really trusting in Christ alone, but in their faith plus their good works to get saved and stay saved.

My Story. Sometimes I share my personal testimony of my religious background as a “missionary kid” and how I came to have assurance of my salvation when I was in my second year of college. I had known and believed the facts of the Gospel that Christ died for my sins…and rose again bodily from the dead on the third day(1 Corinthians 15:3, 4), but I used to think that I had to contribute some good works to be saved, or that if I sinned after my profession of faith, I must not have been saved.

Promise. As I was reading my Bible one day, I came across the verse in 1 John 5:13 which says, “These things I [the Apostle John] have written to you who believe in the name [person and work] of the Son of God, that you may know [not wish, hope, or think] that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.”

Assurance. That day I took God at His Word and gained assurance of my salvation that came from the Scriptures and from God the Holy Spirit who indwells believers (Romans 8:16). This didn’t mean that I stopped sinning completely, but that I had received a new nature from God and a new potential so I didn’t have to keep on sinning against God (1 John 2:1).

Confess. Today, when I sin (act lawlessly) as a Christian, I’m to confess my sins to God the Father and then claim His forgiveness (1 John 1:9; See also James 5:16). Dire consequences may result if I don’t make things right with God promptly (See 1 Corinthians 11:30; James 5:19, 20; 1 John 5:16). My new nature from God the Father wants to do what is right in His sight even when my sin nature wants me to sin – act lawlessly (See Romans 7:15-25).

Be Honest. How would you answer these three questions? If you have any doubts about your future deliverance from hell to heaven, please contact us so we can help you gain assurance of your salvation.

The Gospel (Good News) we must believe today to be saved: https://kelseypeach.wordpress.com/2019/04/24/the-bad-news-the-good-news/

There is a lot of confusion in the minds of many people concerning “The Antichrist.” The Scriptures tell us that currently there are many antichrists in the world (1 John 2:18). They are opposed to Christ. Jesus said, “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:5).

Before we consider some things about “The Antichrist – Man of Lawless” who is yet to come, let me say that we believe that the Scriptures should be interpreted normally (literally), historically, grammatically, and contextually rather than allegorically which changes the intended meaning of the author (See Ezra 8:7, 8; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:16, 27; Titus 1:9).

Satan was the first one to use the allegorical method of interpretation when he told Eve that God really didn’t mean what he said (Genesis 3:1-5). Many religious leaders use this method of interpretation to make the Bible say what they want it to say, especially when it comes to Bible prophecy. Many of them tell people what they want to hear, rather than what they need to hear (2 Timothy 4:1-5). Beware of false teachers (2 Peter 2:1 ff; 2 Peter 2:1 ff; Jude 1:1-25).

We believe that we are very near the end of this “Dispensation of Grace” (often called by some “The Church Age”) which has lasted for about 2,000 years. [1] After the last Gentile person has been saved by believing in/on Christ through the Gospel (Romans 1:16, 17; 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4), and has become a part of the true Church (the spiritual “Body of Christ” – 1 Corinthians 12:12, 13), and has done some praiseworthy works (John 6:37; 1 Corinthians 4:5), the Lord will return for “His Church” and make us “His Bride” (John 14:1-3). Perhaps Today! If He came back today, would you be ready?

Before we get to the place (the heavenly New Jerusalem) that Jesus has been preparing for all true Christians (John 14:1-3; Revelation 21:9 ff), He will judge our works (not us – Romans 5:1; 8:1) at the “Bema Seat Judgment” (somewhere between earth and the third heaven) to determine which works are praiseworthy and which aren’t. If we’ve earned them by our good works, He will give us crowns, rewards, and praise (1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10). BTW – Heaven is a gift, not a reward for good works. It is part of the “salvation package.” [3]

While there are no sign miracles that precede Christ’s imminent return at the Rapture, there seems to be many indicators that point in that direction. “Things aren’t falling apart; they are falling into place.”

The Rapture brings the “Dispensation of Grace” to an end. The seven year Tribulation doesn’t begin until the Antichrist (Man of Lawlessness) signs a seven year covenant (agreement) with the Jews to protect them (Daniel 9:27). Antisemitism is once again on the rise, and the apostate churches that believe the church has replaced Israel will be the primary persecutors of the Jews. [4]

We believe that the stage is being set today for the events that will take place during the seven years of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27), which will include 21 judgments on the people who are left behind on the earth after the “Rapture (catching away) of the true Church.” [5]

Most Christians believe that the 10 Plagues that came on the Egyptians in Moses’ day were literal plagues (Exodus 7-11). There is no reason to allegorize the 21 judgments (7 seal judgments, 7 trumpet judgments, and 7 bowl judgments) mentioned in Revelation chapters 6-19.

After the Rapture of the true Church, but before the seven year Tribulation begins, three things need to happen: (1) The Jews must be in the land of Israel for the signing of a 7 year peace agreement (Daniel 9:27; Ezekiel 39:28), (2) the Ten Kings from the Revived Roman Empire must be in power (Revelation 17:13), and (3) the world wide harlot religion must be in place and have power (Revelation 17:3). [6]

Then the Antichrist (Man of Lawlessness) will be promoted by the 10 Kings (rulers) from the Revived Roman Empire (Daniel 2:33; 7:7, 8) and the Head Person of the harlot religion (Revelation 17:3, 7). He will have to share his power with them until the middle of the Tribulation. At that time he will be killed in a war with Russia and her allies (Ezekiel 38, 39).

But he will be brought back to life and then gain complete control over the whole world. He will require that everyone take his “mark of the beast” to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:16-18). Some won’t take it. These people will have great difficulty surviving physically until the end of the Tribulation (Matthew 10:22). But those who take it are doomed forever. It’s an “unforgivable sin” (Revelation 14:9-11). We believe that the Antichrist will be a Gentile (non-Jew), who will be assisted by a Jewish false prophet (Revelation 13:1-18).

Are these two men alive today? They probably are, but we don’t know who they are. The Antichrist won’t be revealed to the world until after the Rapture of the true Church (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12) . We believe that all true Christians will be taken from the earth to heaven before the seven years of the Tribulation begin (1 Thessalonians 1:10; Revelation 3:10). We also believe that the Antichrist will be empowered and indwelt by the devil himself (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 13:1-10).

The Anti-christ and the false prophet will be cast into the lake of fire at the end of the seven year Tribulation, but the devil won’t be cast there until after Christ’s 1,000 year reign on earth (Revelation 19:20; 20:10). He will be confined in the Abyss (in the heart of the earth) during Christ’s reign on earth (Revelation 20:1-10). He won’t bother or tempt anyone on earth during this time.

We hope this information has been helpful to you. If you’re interested, we’ve have written many other articles on Bible prophecy and other topics that may be useful to you in your understanding of the Scriptures. [7]

But merely knowing and believing the facts of the Bible and the Gospel won’t save you from the lake of fire (Matthew 7:21-23; 25:41, 46). [2] If you haven’t yet placed your faith and trust in Christ alone, Who died for your sins, was buried, and Who rose again bodily on the third day, now is the time to do so. You have no guarantee that you will be alive by the end of today (James 4:14).

When you feel like giving up on someone, please remember this – “… God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister” (Hebrews 6:10).

Every time I read this story below, I get tears in my eyes. I’m thankful for those teachers and people whom God used to shape my life to help me be what I am today. But P.B.P.G.I.N.F.W.M.Y. “Please be patient, God is not finished with me yet.”

“[I’m] confident of this very thing, that He [God] who has begun a good work in [me] will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; …Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6; 3:12-14).

An Eerie Moment

“My daughter and I were visiting a college in Bangor, Maine. After a nice trip, we had our GPS take us back to the car rental agency. Except … it just didn’t seem like it was taking us the right way. We were in the middle of nowhere and pulled up to a graveyard and the GPS said, ‘You have arrived at your [final] destination.’ ” – Alan Willett, New York [1]

Where we want to go and where we will finally end up in eternity will be determined by the choice we made in this life with reference to the Lord Jesus Christ to accept Him as our personal Savior or not.

He is the virgin born, sinless, God-man, Who died for our sins, was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day. God’s only requirement for our entering into heaven, rather than spending eternity with the devil and his angels/demons in the lake of fire, is for us to put our faith and trust in Him alone for our salvation. No amount of good works can save us. Nor can our faith plus our good works save us. [2]

It is by God’s grace (unmerited favor) alone, that we are saved by faith (believing) alone, in the Christ of the Scriptures alone. The Christs of the cults can’t save anyone. [3]

If you are not absolutely sure that you will go to heaven the moment you die, please let us help you gain assurance of this as I did many years ago. If you’ve been saved, we want to help you grow spiritually, serve God and others effectively, and reproduce other believers.

[3] Which Jesus Saves? https://kelseypeach.wordpress.com/2015/01/07/which-jesus-saves/

Perhaps you’ve seen pictures of them on a white horse, a red horse, a black horse, and a pale green horse. But maybe you don’t know what they represent. They are mentioned in the Book of Revelation chapter six and refer to four conditions that may take place in the very near future shortly after the “Man of sin” (Anti-Christ) signs a 7 year agreement with the Jewish people to ensure their peace and safety (Daniel 9:27).  The Jews need and want this now more than ever. 

Anti-Semitism. Once again hatred for the Jews is on the rise and, believe it or not, it will continue to get much worse.  Today three major religions are struggling over the city of Jerusalem which is likened to a heavy stone for all peoples (Zechariah 12:3).

  Armageddon.  Eventually, at the end of the “Great Tribulation,” all the nations of the world will come against the Jews to a place in northern Israel called Armageddon (Revelation 16:16).  But the Lord Jesus Christ Himself (their Messiah) will descend from heaven to deliver the believing Jewish remnant in the nick of time (Revelation 19:11-19; Zechariah 12:8-14; 14:1-15; Matthew 23:39).

  Rapture.  True, the word “rapture” isn’t found in the English translation of the Scriptures, but it accurately conveys the concept of being “caught up” to meet the Lord in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:17).  This event has no “Biblical” signs that precede it.  It can happen at any moment and it will fulfill Christ’s promise to His disciples and to all true believers of this “Dispensation of Grace” in which we now live (John 14:1-3; Ephesians 3:1-5).  Remember, a thousand years to us is like a day to God (2 Peter 3:8).

  The Order Of Coming Events.  [1] After the Rapture (snatching away) of the true Church, but before the Anti-Christ and the Jews sign the seven year agreement, most Jews must be back in the land of Israel (Daniel 9:27).  Something apparently happens after the Rapture of the true church to make the Jews in other countries want to return to the land of Israel that God promised to give to them in an unconditional covenant (Genesis 15:18).  Ten kings (leaders) from the region of the Revived Roman Empire also must be in power (Revelation 17:12, 13), and the world wide harlot religion must be in it’s place and have power (Revelation 17:3) which they will give to the Anti-Christ (Man of Sin).

  Judgments.  There are three sets of seven judgments (21 judgments): 7 Seals, 7 Trumpets, and 7 Bowl judgments (Revelation 6-19).  The “Seven Seal Judgments” will take place during the first half of the seven year tribulation and are designed for the Gentile (non-Jewish) nations (Revelation 6:1-16; 8:1).  These judgments will not harm the Jews in Israel who have a signed agreement (covenant) with the Anti-Christ (Matthew 24:6).

  White Horseman (First seal judgment).  This represents the condition of false peace that will be made between the Anti-Christ and Israel (Daniel 9:27; 1 Thessalonians 5:3).

  Red Horseman (Second seal judgment).  This represents the war in which the Anti-Christ will depose three of the ten kings (rulers) who want their power back after they become disillusioned with him (Daniel 2:43; 7:8, 23ff).  Perhaps he will use weapons of mass destruction to destroy these three kings and their countries.

  Black Horseman (Third seal judgment).  This represents the terrible famine that will follow in the wake of this war.  It will engulf the non-Jews, but it will not affect the Jews living in the land of Israel.  They will enjoy plenty of food while other people in the rest of the world are starving.  This will be one of the reasons why Russia and her Arab allies will come down on Israel to take a spoil (Ezekiel 38:11 ff). They’re hungry.

  Pale Horseman (Fourth seal judgment).  This represents death when one fourth of the world’s population will die (Revelation 6:8).  Later, during the sixth trumpet judgment, another one third of the world’s population will die (Revelation 9:15). This means that over ½ of the world’s population will die during this “Seven Year Tribulation.” (Consider the Globalists’ New World Order agenda.) [2]

  Martyrs  (Fifth seal judgment).  Apparently these are Gentiles who become believers in the true and living God after the Rapture of the true Church. They will be martyred (killed) by the apostate church.

  War (Sixth seal judgment).  When Russia and her Arab allies come against Israel in the middle of the seven year tribulation to take a spoil, the Anti-Christ will come to Israel’s deliverance and fight against them and destroy them (Ezekiel 38, 39).  [3] But during this battle, the Anti-Christ also will be killed but then be brought back to life and amaze the whole world (Revelation 13:3, 12, 14).  Then he will demand that the Jews worship him as god.  They will refuse to do this (Matthew 24:15-28).  Since the Devil couldn’t get Jesus to worship him (Matthew 4:8-10), he will try to get God’s chosen people to worship his human representative on earth.  But the Jews won’t fall down before him.  Idol worship was something that the Jews had learned not to do while they were captives in Babylon for 70 years (Daniel 3:1-18).

  Silence In Heaven (Seventh seal judgment).  At the middle of the “Seven Year Tribulation” there will be silence in heaven for ½ hour because this will be the first time in human history that one man will have complete domination over the whole world like never before. He will demand that everyone worship him and take his mark (666) if he/she wants to buy, sell, or trade during the last 3 ½ years, known as the “Great Tribulation” and “The Time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) Trouble” (Revelation 13:17; Jeremiah 30:7; Matthew 24:15 ff).  Those who take his mark are doomed. (No, the “Jab” is not the “Mark of the Beast.” – Revelation 13:11-18) [4]

  Jews Persecuted.  When the “Man of Sin” (Anti-Christ) breaks his agreement with the Jews, he will not allow them to continue to offer any more sacrifices in the rebuilt temple.  The false prophet will have the Anti-Christ’s image put in the rebuilt Jewish temple, and the Jews will flee to Petra, which is also known as Sela (Isaiah 16:1; Revelation 12:13-17).  Then God will miraculously protect the Jewish remnant (believers) for the rest of the seven years of tribulation.  Two thirds of the Jews (the rebels) will be cut off and die during the second half of the Tribulation (Zechariah 13:8). Then the Jews will come to realize that God is once again dealing with them (Romans 11:25).

  Two Witnesses.  These two Jewish men will be in the city of Jerusalem for the last 3 ½ years of the Seven Year Tribulation and will have God’s power to devour their enemies (Revelation 11:3-12).  The 144,000 Jews, from the twelve tribes of Israel, will evangelize the whole world with the “Gospel of the Kingdom” during the last half of the tribulation (Revelation 7:4-8; Matthew 24:14).  It is not the same Gospel which one must believe today to be saved (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).

  The Great Tribulation.  To the dismay of those living on the earth at this time, the last half of the tribulation will be far worse than the first half.  The Trumpet and Bowl Judgments will devastate the whole earth.  God hasn’t abandoned the Jews forever and He hasn’t replaced the Jews with the Church (Romans 11:1). [5] These are two separate and unique groups (1 Corinthians 10:32).  God will fulfill all the unconditional promises that He made with the Jews.  Otherwise Christians can’t be sure that He will fulfill His promises to us (Romans 15:4).

Look Up. You don’t need to be told that we are living in a very troubled world today. Jesus said, “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:25-28).

  Questions.  Where will you be when all these things happen?  Are you sure?  Where will you spend eternity?  Have you placed your faith exclusively in the Lord Jesus Christ who died for your sins and rose again?  If not, why not trust Him right now before it’s too late? [6]

The Crown Of Righteousness. Christians who love the Lord’s imminent return for us will be more likely to live God honoring, righteous lives and earn this crown (2 Timothy 4:8). So, keep looking up. Perhaps Today!

Many leaders in the world today would like to be “The Ruler of the World.” In a song of yesteryear, Tony Bennet sang, “If I ruled the world, Every day would be the first day of spring, Every heart would have a new song to sing, And we’d sing of the joy every morning would bring. If I ruled the world, Every man would be as free as a bird, Every voice would be a voice to be heard, Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred…” [1] Really?

John Lennon’s song“Imagine,” which is often sung at the Olympic games, proposes that we can get rid of heaven and hell by just imagining them away. This “ain’t going to happen, folks.” [2]

This “Satanically Empowered World Ruler” (Man of Sin – Antichrist) will come to offer world peace (Revelation 6:2-4). But it won’t last very long. Shortly after the 10 kings from the Revived Roman Empire have set him up to rule the world with them, he will wipe out three of them who have second thoughts about him because he apparently has mixed blood (Daniel 2:43; 7:8, 24).

God will allow him to rule over the whole world for seven years before the Lord Jesus Christ destroys him at the end of the 7 year Tribulation (Revelation 19:19-21). The philosophy of humanism will also be destroyed at this time. [3]

The Anti-christ (Man of Sin) is probably alive at this time and waiting in the wings for his “day in the sun.” After the first 3 ½ years he will be killed in war with Russia and her allies who want to take a spoil from the Jews in Israel (Ezekiel 38, 39). But miraculously he will be restored back to life (Revelation 13:3, 4), and will gain total control of the whole world for the last 3 ½ years known as the “Great Tribulation” (Matthew 24:15 ff).

This is why there will be silence in heaven for ½ hour when the 7th Seal Judgment takes place at the middle of the 7 year Tribulation (Revelation 8:1). It will be the first time in human history when a mere man will have complete domination of the whole world.

Sadly, during the seven years of the Tribulation, over ½ of the world’s population will die from the 21 plagues that will come on mankind (Revelation 6:8; 9:15). [4]

By the way, the diabolical globalists want to reduce the world’s population down to about 500 million people [5]. The devil and his agents are ruthless murderers (John 8:44) and are opposed to God and His plan for the ages. Are you familiar with it? If not, ask for more information.

If you’re “not a Christian,” or only a “nominal Christian” instead of a“true Christian,” now is the time for you to “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ alone, Who died for our sins…and rose again bodily from the dead on the third day” (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). Keep this in mind – We are NOT saved from hell to heaven by our good works, or by our faith PLUS our good works (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5).

If you die physically without Him as your personal Savior, you will end up in the lake of fire with the devil and his angels forever (Matthew 25:41, 46; Revelation 21:8). We don’t want that to happen to anyone.

[3] Humanism – The philosophy that rejects the idea or belief in a supernatural being such as God. This means that humanists class themselves as agnostic or atheist. Humanists have no belief in an afterlife, and so they focus on seeking happiness in this life.

Some cultivate the ground; others plant the seeds. Still others may come along and water them. But it is God Who causes dead seeds to come to life and increase (1 Corinthians 3:6). “…Salvation is of the LORD” (Jonah 2:9). All unsaved people are spiritually dead and need eternal life (Ephesians 2:1).

If you’ve been saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ and the Gospel, what have you been doing to spread the Good News concerning Christ’s death for our sins and His bodily resurrection?

Christ needs believers to be His witnesses. Don’t let the devil intimidate you (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 Peter 5:8). God said, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).

“For I [the Apostle Paul] am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

Here are several Gospel presentations, in audio/video format, and illustrated presentations that can be used by God for the salvation (deliverance from hell to heaven) of your unsaved family, friends, and fellow workers: https://kelseypeach.wordpress.com/2022/02/16/gospel-presentations/ Click SHARE.

Speaking at his son’s commencement exercise at the Cardigan Mountain School, Chief Justice John Roberts said hardships in life were both inevitable and important for building character, so he would abstain from wishing them good luck in the future.

He said, “From time to time in the years to come, I hope you will be treated unfairly, so that you will come to know the value of justice. I hope that you will suffer betrayal, because that will teach you the importance of loyalty.

“Sorry to say, but I hope you will be lonely from time to time, so that you don’t take friends for granted. I wish you bad luck, again from time to time, so you will be conscious of the role of chance in life, and understand that your success is not completely deserved, and that the failure of others is not completely, deserved, either.

“And when you lose, as you will from time to time, I hope every now and then your opponent will gloat over your failure. It is a way for you to understand the importance of sportsmanship. I hope you will be ignored, so you know the importance of listening to others. And I hope you will have just enough pain to learn compassion.

“Whether I wish these things or not, they are going to happen, and whether you benefit from them or not will depend upon your ability to see the message in your misfortunes,” he said. [1]

When God Wants To Make A Man

When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man,
And skill a man,
When God wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!

How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him
Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!

How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses,
And with every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendor out—
God knows what He’s about.
