Prior to his becoming a true believer in the God of the Jews, King Nebuchadnezzar ruled over the whold world as “The Head of God” and as a very cruel dictator. God used him to punish the wicked Jews by taking them into captivity in Babylon for 70 years (Daniel 1:1, 2; 2:38; Jeremiah 29:10).

After being humbled by God for seven years, and living like a beast of the field, and then having his kingdom restored to him, he shared his personal testimony for all the world to read. It’s recorded for us in Daniel chapter 4. He came to realize that “the Most High [God] rules in the kingdom of men, [and that He] gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men” (Daniel 4:17, 25).

It is God Himself Who “changes the times and the seasons; [Who] removes kings and raises up kings; [Who] gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding” (Daniel 2:21).

We also know that it is God Who “has made from one blood [i.e. Adam] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and [He] has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings” (Acts 17:26). (See “Evolution vs God.” Click below.)

Behind most of the rulers of this earth there is a fallen angel / demon who is in controll of that person even without that person’s knowing it (Daniel 10:20; Ephesians 2:2; 6:12). They don’t have your best interest in mind. But Christians are to pray for them, and we can also intercede against them (1 Timothy 2:1-4; Romans 11:2).

Apparently after sufffering from years of painful tuberculosis and eventually losing his leg to the disease, Poet William E. Henley foolishly said, “I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” He knows better now where he is.

All of us are either controlled by the devil / demons (John 8:44; 13:2; Acts 10:38), by our own sinful nature (Romans 6:11-14; Galatians 5:16), or by the Lord (Ephesians 5:18).

Author Warren Wiersbe wrote, “I would rather have Jesus Christ as my Master than anyone else I know [Romans 12:1, 2; 1 Peter 3:15]. He loves me [ John 13:34, 35], He knows all about me [John 2:24, 25], He made me [Psalm 139:15], He knows the future [Isaiah 46:10], and He gives me the power I need to serve Him acceptably and fruitfully [Philippians 4:13; Ephesian 3:20]. When I fail, [The Father] forgives me [when I confess my sins to Him – 1 John 1:9] and helps me start over again [Luke 22:32]. He never leaves me or forsakes me [Hebrews 13:5], and He rewards me graciously [1 Corinthians 3:8, 14; 2 Corinthians 5:10], though I don’t deserve it [Revelation 4:11; 5:9]. Could you find a better Master than that?” [I couldn’t.] – Warren W. Wiersbe, On Being A Servant, p. 30.

Songwriter Oscar C. A. Bernadotte expressed the longing of his heart with these words –

I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold;

I’d rather be His than have riches untold;

I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands;

I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin’s dread sway;
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

What about you? Are you tired of making a mess out of your life? Have you placed your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, Who died for your sins…and rose again bodily on the third day? If not, why not now? Are you depending on some or all of your good works to be saved? (If you are, Stop! Read Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5)

Once you’ve been saved, and in light of the mercies of God, He wants /desires that all believers “present [their] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to Godwhich is [our] reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world [age], but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:1, 2).

God has some wonderful things He’d like to accomplish in and through His children for God’s glory and the good of others (Ephesians 2:10; 1 Peter 4:10).

The Gospel:

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

Used by Permission. All rights reserved.

Be informed. Act Accordingly.

Like it or not, willingly or unwillingly, there is coming a day when every knee (including your knee and mine) shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (the God-man) to the glory of God the Father Who said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him.” (Matthew 3:17; 17:5; 2 Peter 1:17). This includes those in heaven, those on the earth, and those under the earth (Philippians 2:9-11).

It’s very possible that in as soon as 7 years from now God the Father could/might set up God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the King of kings, and Lord of lords over all the earth for 1,000 years (Revelation 19:16; 20:1-6; Psalm 2). Discover what will happen first. (See “Order” below.) [1]

However, this Scripture is NOT teaching the “universal salvation” of all creatures as some false teachers proclaim (2 Peter 2:1; Jude 1:4 ff). Such individuals are far more dangerous than than the “Globalists” who currently are pushing for the establishment of the “New World Order” in a deliberate, Satanically planned manner which God is permitting.

The Scriptures predicted what is currently happening in our world today (1 Timothy 4:1 ff; 2 Timothy 3:1 ff; 2 Peter 3:1 ff). “Things aren’t falling apart; they are falling into place.” The “stage” is being set for some horrific days (“Seven Years of Tribulation” – Daniel 9:27; Jeremiah 30:7) which will precede the days of “peace on earth” for 1,000 years under the true “Prince of Peace” – the Lord Jesus Christ (Isaiah 2:4; 9:6, 7).

Past, Present, and Future. At the “time” of the Decree in eternity past, after considering the multiple options available to the Godhead (Ephesians 1:11; Matthew 11:21, 23), God the Son, Who shared an absolute equality with God the Father (John 5:18), and God the Holy Spirit (John 14:16, 17; Acts 5:3, 4), volunteered to be the Spokesman for the Godhead (John 1:1-18), and to add to His Deity a true human nature and a real body (Philippians 2:5-8; 1 John 4:2, 3). He determined to make the invisible God visible to humanity by being born of the virgin, Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23). He lived sinlessly among humanity for about 33 years (Hebrews 4:15).

He offered Himself to the Jewish nation as their rightful King and Messiah. Sadly, in spite of all the sign miracles He performed (John 20:30, 31), most of them rejected Him (John 1:11, 12; Hebrews 10:9). They were interested in a political Savior, not a spiritual one. They didn’t think they needed one because they were the chosen descendants of Abraham (John 8:33), just as many Jews and non-Jews today think they don’t need Christ and His substitutionary, sacrificial death on their behalf (Hebrews 9:22).

After Jesus fed over 5,000 people on one occasion, the Jewish people wanted to make Him their “Welfare” King, but He turned down their offer (John 6:15).

After man’s future failure to establish universal “peace on earth” (1 Thessalonians 5:3), God the Father will set up the Lord Jesus Christ as the King of kings, and Lord of lords. It will be God the Father Himself Who crowns Him as such, not us human beings as some of the songs we sing suggest (Psalm 2:1-12; Revelation 19:16).

The Day of His coronation may not be that far away from now. It could take place in a little over 7 years from today after more than one half of the world’s population has been killed during the Seven Years of the Tribulation (Revelation 6:8; 9:15). If God doesn’t limit the “Man of Sin’s” (Antichrist’s) activities during this time, no flesh on earth would survive (Matthew 24:22). The devil is a selective murderer and a liar (John 8:44). He promotes euthanasia and the abortion/murder of babies (Exodus 1:16; Matthew 2:16). Where will you be when all this happens on earth?

BTW – In our world today we have some elite, “Uber-rich Globalists” who want to reduce the human population down to about 500 million people. [2] They want to rule over genetically modified people (“serfs”) who will have/own nothing and be content with that. [3]

While God has, through nature, demonstrated His existence (Psalm 19:1 ff), some claim to be atheists or agnostics. God calls them “fools” (Psalm 14:1). Many (perhaps most) of humanity believe the lie of evolution. [4] They fail to give thanks to God for the blessings that He sends on the righteous and unrighteous (sunshine and rain – Matthew 5:45). Without these, none of us could survive physically.

Sadly, many Christians also fail to give thanks to God “for all things” (Ephesians 5:20), “in all circumstances” (1 Thessalonians 5:18), and “for all men” (1 Timothy 2:1). What about you?

For this reason, God has given up many unbelievers to all types of perversions which will bring greater judgment and punishment on them (Romans 1:18-32; Revelation 20:12, 13). All unbelievers, who die in their sins, without having been judicially forgiven (John 16:11; Romans 4:7; Ephesians 1:7; 1 John 2:12), will end up in the lake of fire where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 25:30, 41, 46), and where the worm (sinful nature) of man won’t die (Mark 9:44, 46, 48). Throughout eternity they will have uncontrollable cravings for drugs, alcohol, perverted sex, etc that will never be satisfied (See Revelation 21:8; 22:11; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

Hope. If you’re alive right now on earth, reading this as an unsaved person, there is hope for you. But if you die physically in unbelief, your destiny in the lake of fire with the devil and his angels/demons will be irreversible (Matthew 25:41, 46). (No reincarnation, or annihilation of the wicked dead are taught in the Scriptures, as some cults teach.)

Hades. Today, when an unbeliever dies, he/she goes to Hades to suffer in the heart of the earth (Luke 16:19-31; Deuteronomy 32:22). At the end of time Jesus will raise them up from there (1 Corinthians15:20-26). They will stand before Him at the Great White Throne Judgment where their works will be judged (Revelation 20:10-15) to determine their degree of suffering forever in the lake of fire. (See Matthew 10:15; 11:22. 24.) What about believers who die today? [5]

My friend, if you put your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, Who died for your sins, was buried for three days and nights, and then rose again bodily from the dead, you will be saved (delivered) from the lake of fire (John 3:16, 18, 36; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Acts 16:31). This is the Gospel that we must believe in order to be saved from everlasting condemnation. No one is saved by his/her good works (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5). [6]

The choice is yours. You have no guarantee that you will be alive 5 minutes from now. “Now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2; See James 4:14; Proverbs 27:1).

[6] Gospel Presentations:

It may surprise you to know that our original ancestors had red skin. “Adam” means red. [1] God formed man out of the (red) dust of the ground, and breathed into him the breath of lives – physical and spiritual (Genesis 2:7). He was made in the image of God (Genesis 2:26, 27) but that image was marred when Eve and Adam ate the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:7-11; 5:3; See 1 Corinthians 15:49).

We inherited a sinful nature (disposition) from them and we will pass it on to our descendants (Psalm 51:5; 1 John 1:8). Most of the sins we commit stem from this nature (Galatians 5:19-21). Sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4). It’s increasing (2 Timothy 3:1 ff). That is why we need a new nature from God (John 3:7; 2 Peter 1:4).

You may believe in the theory of evolution if you want, but it’s only a theory and a poor one at that. [2] Charles Darwin, Margaret Sanger, Adolph Hitler and many others were and are eugenicists and racists. This philosophy has led to the murder of over 100 million people in the last 150 years. Millions of babies have been aborted too. Even to this day there are people being bought and sold as slaves and it will continue until Christ returns after the seven years of Tribulation (Revelation 18:13; See Daniel 9:27).

Melanin. It determines the many shades of our skin but it has nothing to do with whether or not Christ died for us and our sins or not. Those who believe in “limited atonement” (i.e. that Christ only died for a select group of people) have great difficulty presenting the Gospel to lost people and offering hope to them. If they are to be honest, they must say, Perhaps Christ died for you.” “Maybe God so loved you.” “Christ shed His blood for you, perhaps.” “Salvation has been provided for you, maybe.” [3]

No, Christ died for the sins of all mankind; He was buried for three days and nights and then rose again bodily from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). Those who place their faith and trust in Him alone (and not their good works – Ephesians 2:9; Titus 3:5) will spend eternity with God in heaven. Those who don’t will spend eternity with the devil and his angels/demons in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41, 46; Revelation 21:8).

When all whom God the Father has given to the God the Son have come to Christ and been saved, Jesus will come back for His own (those who have believed in/on Him) and take us to the place that He has been preparing for us (John 6:37; 14:1-3; Revelation 21:9 ff). These people, from the Day of Pentecost to the Rapture, make up the members in the spiritual “Body of Christ” (1 Corinthians 12:12, 13).

Friend, you won’t want to be left behind and enter the seven years of the Tribulation that may be just around the corner (Read Revelation 6-19). Do you know what the next event on God’s calendar is? Are your ready for it? Ask for our FREE “Dispensations Chart.” [4]

My desire/purpose in life is to glorify God by making Him known to others (1 Corinthians 10:31). I can do this by making sure of my own salvation (2 Peter 1:10; 1 John 5:13), by growing spiritually so others can see my life being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 3:18; Galatians 5:22, 23), by using my “spiritual gift” with love to edify other believers (1 Peter 4:10; Galatians 5:13), and by pointing others to Christ and sharing with them the unadulterated Gospel so they can be saved (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19, 20).  I hope that this is your purpose too.

Our problem is not the amount of melanin we have but a sin problem. [5] We’ve all sinned and come short of God’s standard (Romans 3:10, 23). We all deserve to be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire (Romans 6:23). We all need Christ’s righteousness if we want to enter heaven (John 16:10). He was perfect and never sinned (Hebrews 4:15). His righteousness will be put to your account the moment you place your faith and trust in Him alone to save you (Romans 4:24, 25). You will be judicially forgiven (Ephesians 1:7). No longer will/can you be condemned (Romans 8:1). You will be eternally secure (John 10:28, 29; Ephesians 1:13). However, this doesn’t give you a license to sin (See Hebrews 12:5 ff).

Every Christian’s concern should include the salvation of his/her unsaved neighbors (Luke 19:10; 1 Timothy 2:4). If you’re saved, when was the last time you shared the “Clear Gospel” with another person for whom Christ died? Could you share the Gospel with 24 words? [6]

Friend, we may be coming to the end of our “constitutional republic.” The United States is not specifically mentioned in Bible prophecy as many other nations are. We also may be coming to the end of the “Dispensation of Grace” (Ephesians 3:2 ff). Do you know what the future looks like (1 Corinthians 15:51, 52)? [4]

“Evolving Into Gods?”

Posted: September 28, 2018 in Creation, Evolution

Some religions and false cults believe that men can actually become gods. One of the cults believes, “As man is, God once was. As God is, man may become.” There are false teachers today who claim to be gods and who teach that by the words they speak they can bring things into existence. This is what some people in the “Word of Faith” movement do. Rather than asking God humbly for things they want, they demand things “in His name.”  They are sometimes referred to as the “health, wealth, and happiness” preachers. They tell you that if you sow a seed (money) into their ministry, God will cause you to reap a harvest of your own. Sadly, many who believed them and sent them money didn’t get the “harvest” they were promised and have become bitter toward all religious people and even toward God. Are you one of them or do you know someone who was taken in by them?

Explanation. But what did Jesus mean when He said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also, and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12)? Some of the early Christians, to whom were given some temporary spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 13:8-13), did indeed perform some miracles as Christ did (Acts 2:22; See 2 Thessalonians 2:9). But we believe that the “greater works” pertained to the lasting spiritual health and eternal life that the believers would receive upon their being saved after hearing the Gospel concerning Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3,4). The people whom Christ healed and resuscitated back from death eventually died again.

Temptation. When the devil, through the serpent, told Eve that by eating the forbidden fruit that she would become like God, what did he mean? Why was it so appealing to her? Which part of what the devil suggested to her was true, and which part was a lie? Was the concept of evolution around long before Charles Darwin came on the scene? Why do some people believe that mankind is evolving upward rather than morally degenerating downward? (See Romans 1:18 ff; 1 Timothy 4:1 ff; 2 Timothy 3:1 ff) Why has the theory of evolution and socialism/communism led to so many millions of deaths?

Quote. Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer wrote, “Evolution is a humanly devised theory which has no scientific basis or evidence upon which to rest, but is all the same believed by college and university professors and in general the intellectual class. No thoughtful person can avoid the problem of the origin of all things, and the evolutionary theory is perhaps the best theory that unregenerate man can conceive. The unsaved cannot take God and His revelation into their thoughts. He certainly is not in all their thoughts (Psalm 10:4). The divine seeming so unreal to them, the concept of deity has not provided a reasonable enough basis for their minds when it is declared that God did anything. Therefore, being unable to believe the Genesis account of creation and not having any ability to believe that there is a God who created all things, they have devised the best theory that they can, but still with great inconsistency. As avowedly scientific men, they must refuse to accept anything which is unproved; yet in this theory of evolution they accept every word of testimony regardless of a lack of proof, and of course no effectual line of proof has been constructed or discovered. Such men in their unregenerate limitation are to be pitied. No Spirit-taught person will have trouble with the Genesis account of the creation. Having nothing to put in its place, however, the evolutionist must devise the best theory that he can with which to satisfy the mind on the vexing problem of origins.” [1]

Choice. You have a choice to make. You can believe the unscientific theory of evolution, or you can accept the Scriptural truth about creation that was validated by the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all of our sins…and rose again bodily on the third day. He said, “But from the beginning of creation, God made them [Adam and Eve] male and female” (Mark 10:6). What He said was either true or false. He also said, “I AM the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). Most of the Jewish leaders of His day wanted to kill Him for making Himself out to be equal with God the Father (John 5:18; 10:30, 31).

Solution. An individual who places his/her faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone to save him/her, by believing that He died for his/her sins, was buried for three days and nights, and who rose again bodily on the third day, should have no problem accepting the Biblical account of creation (Genesis 1:1 ff; John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-3). Is your love for the temporary pleasures of life keeping you from believing on Christ and His Word? Do you love the darkness rather than light (John 3:19).

Unbelief. There is only one unforgivable sin today that will send a person to the lake of fire to suffer forever (Matthew 25:30, 41, 46). It is the sin of unbelief in the Christ of the Scriptures (John 16:8-11; See John 3:16, 18, 36). The Christs of the cults and other gods or religious leaders can’t save anyone (Matthew 24:5). The Gospel concerning Christ is the power of God unto one’s salvation (Romans 1:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

Vain. Are you “believing in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:2) by placing your faith in your good works or in the wrong Jesus (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5; 2 Corinthians 11:4, 13-15)? Do you have assurance of your salvation that comes from God’s Word (1 John 5:13) and the witness of God the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16)? If you’re not sure that you will go to heaven the moment you die, or if you think that you must go to Purgatory first, or that you will have a second chance to be saved after you die, please let us show you from the Scriptures what God requires for you to receive His quality of life (eternal life) as a present possession. Don’t put it off. “Now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2; See Proverbs 27:1; 29:1). Our lives are like a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away (James 4:14).

Questions About Creation

In all likelihood, whether you’re a Christian or not, you probably don’t know very much about “The Weeping Prophet.”  He wept bitterly because God revealed to him the devastation that was coming to His own people, the Jews.  

Pit.  Even though God had drawn them out of an iron furnace and a horrible pit in Egypt (Deuteronomy 9:26; 1 Kings 8:51), and entered into a conditional, covenant relationship with them (Exodus 19:5-8; 20:1 ff; Deuteronomy 28:1-68), most of the Jews turned their backs on the true and living God, and worshiped the lifeless idols of the pagans around them.  For this, and their failure to observe the weekly Sabbaths and the Sabbatical years, they were sent into captivity in Babylon for 70 years (Leviticus 26:34-43; 2 Chronicles 36:21; Daniel 1:1, 2).

Value.  Even though our “House Rules” for living are different from those which God gave to the Jews, there is value that comes from reading the Old Testament.  (See “Understanding The Times, Dispensations Chart” on our website.)  We can learn (1) from negative example, what not to do (1 Corinthians 10:6-13), (2) that God will keep His promises to us, New Testament Christians, as He did with the Jews in the Old Testament (Romans 15:4), and (3) we can learn much about the character of God from the Old Testament (Ezekiel 6:7, 10, 14, 7:4 et al).

Oh, Charles, Charles. [1] It’s rather sad that Charles Dawkins has such a low and distorted opinion of God as he has expressed in his writings such as the “God Delusion.”  He calls the God of the Old Testament all kinds of nasty names.  On one occasion he had to admit that he was more of an agnostic rather than an atheist. The Scriptures call atheists “fools” (Psalm 14:1). But I’m very sure that his mentor Charles Darwin, [2] who wrote On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life,” knows better now, in his current state (Luke 16:19-31), who God is and how man came into existence (See Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:7).  Please note the words favoured races that Darwin used.  Margaret Sanger (Planned Parenthood) [3] apparently believed that some races were inferior to others.  What about you?  “The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:7).

Similarities.  As I’ve been reading again the writings of the Jewish Prophet Jeremiah, I’ve noticed many similar conditions that exist in our beloved country as they existed in his.  He wasn’t happy about what he saw going on among the Jews.  God told him to warn them of their wicked ways and the consequences that would follow if they didn’t repent.  But they kept on sinning and engaged in the wicked and debased practices of the heathen people around them.  They even sacrificed their children to the pagan gods and threw them into the fire.  Is that any different than our behavior in the United States where over 60 million babies have been aborted (murdered) since 1973 in Roe v. Wade?  May God have mercy upon us and may we turn from our wicked ways before God brings judgment on us.

Sodom And Gomorrah.  The people living in these cities were depraved and very wicked people (Genesis 13:13; See Jeremiah 23:14; Romans 1:18 ff).  But did  you know that Jesus rebuked the Jews living in some cities in Israel (Matthew 11:21, 23), and told them that it would be more tolerable for the people of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment (the Great White Throne – Revelation 20:11-15) then for them? Why? Because if Jesus had lived and performed the miracles that he did in Sodom and Gomorrah, He said that they would have repented and believed on Him. He could say this because He was/is omniscient (John 2:24, 25). But the Jews of Jesus’ day, who heard Him teach and saw His miracles that proved His deity, didn’t believe on Him and accept Him as their promised Messiah (John 1:11, 12; 19:6; Matthew 16:16). But one day in the future, the Jews will acknowledge this fact (Matthew 23:37-39; See Zechariah 12:10; Philippians 2:11).

United States.  Of all the people in the world, we, who live in the United States, have been exposed to the Word of God and many of us own Bibles, even though most of them are not being read on a regular basis.  Many of the “televangelists” on radio or TV talk about the Gospel and different ways of salvation, but most of them don’t get it right. (See below.)  Shame on them; woe to them (Jeremiah 23:1; Matthew 23:13-16; James 3:1; Jude 1:13).  In some countries of the world, having and/or reading the Bible could get you imprisoned or mean death.  How highly do you value your Bible?  Is it less important than your cell phone?

Light.  With light and illumination comes responsibility“To him who knows to do good, and doesn’t do it, to him it is sin” (James 4:17).  Jesus is the Light of the world (John 9:5).  Have you come to Him for illumination and salvation?

Gospel.  My friend, we’re all sinners who have come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).  We all deserve to be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire (Romans 6:23; Matthew 25:41, 46).  But Christ died for all our sins…and rose again bodily on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).  Anyone who believes on Him alone for salvation, will be saved (Acts 16:31).  Have you done this yet?  If not, why not now?

Carnal.  Perhaps you’ve been saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ, but you’re carnal and acting like an unsaved person (1 Corinthians 3:1-4; 5:1 ff; 1 John 1:8).  If this is your condition, confess your known sins to God and claim His forgiveness (1 John 1:9).  You may also need to confess your sins to others whom you have offended (James 5:16).  Then start walking by means of the Holy Spirit so you don’t keep on yielding to the temptations that come from your sin nature (Galatians 5:16, 25; See Ephesians 5:18).  If you’re yielding to temptations from the devil, avail yourself of the full armor of God and resist him and he will flee from you (1 Peter 5:8; James 4:7; Ephesians 6:10-17).  If you’re misdirecting your love away from God and directing it toward the present world system, stop loving it (1 John 2:15-17).  We may use it, but we’re not to abuse it (1 Corinthians 7:31).

“Three Big Lies”

Posted: August 9, 2018 in Evolution

“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, But those who deal truthfully are His delight (Proverbs 12:22). “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolater, and all liars shall have their part in the lake of fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8; See also 1 Corinthians 6:8-11). Jesus rebuked some religious leaders of His day by saying, “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44). Let’s consider some lies that many people have come to believe –

There Is No God

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They have done abominable works, There is none who does good” (Psalm 14:1). Even the devil and demons acknowledge God’s existence (Matthew 8:29; James 2:19). To say that there is no God is the height of arrogance and pride. No one has been everywhere in the universe and no human being is omniscient. If one were honest, he should say, “I’m an agnostic” rather than saying, “I’m an atheist.” Those who deny that there is a God who is all powerful often are “given over to uncleanness, in the lusts of their heart, to dishonor their bodies among themselves” (Romans 1:18 ff). Is it any wonder that we live in such a depraved and wicked world where many people are acting lawlessly (1 John 3:4) and doing what is right in their own eyes (Genesis 6:5; Judges 21:25)? If you’re a Christian, are you acting like an atheist? How often do you think about Him (worship Him) and take Him into your plans? Do you know where your “rules for living” are found in the Scriptures? (See our “Understanding The Times – Dispensations Chart” on our website for more information.)

There Is No Creator

The theory of evolution has been repeated so many times and has been presented as a fact that most people have come to believe it is the truth. But it is a lie. [1]  Men can’t/don’t become gods as some cults and false religions teach. God is the Creator and Sustainer of all life (Genesis 1, 2; John 1:3; Colossians 1:15, 16). The logical outcome of evolution is little or no respect for human life (abortion/murder), class warfare, and racial tension. Atheism and communism are reported to have been responsible for over 100 million people’s death in the 20th century. “Democratic socialism” is just another deceptive term that leads to death and the destruction of people’s lives. The Scriptures don’t support communism but honest capitalism (Ephesians 4:28; 2 Thessalonians 3:10).

There Is No Afterlife

John Lennon’s song “Imagine” has deceived many people into believing that there is no heaven or hell, or future judgment. They think that it’s permissible to live just for the moment without any thought of future consequences for their irresponsible living. Why not “eat, drink, and be merry” (Luke 12:19) if there is no judgment day? But the Scriptures are clear. “…it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). “…each one of us shall give an account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12). “For we all [i. e. Christians] must appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10; See the unbeliever’s judgment – Revelation 20:11-15).

The Resurrections Of The Dead

Since Christ rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15), all other human beings will be resurrected, each in his own order. We will spend eternity somewhere. Where will it be for you? Are you sure?

“The Bad News & The Good News”

My friend, you and I are sinners.

But Christ died for our sins…and rose again bodily.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ alone and you will be saved.

If you’ve never done this, do it now!


Parts 1 , 2

“Man – Helpless, Hopeless, Hell bound?”

Have you ever asked yourself, Where did I come from?  Why am I here?  What will happen to me when I die?  Can anyone be sure?  Is there a reliable source I can trust to give me honest answers?

I’m assuming that if you went in to see your Doctor for your annual checkup that you’d want him to tell you the truth about your overall health. Suppose, after taking several tests, he came back and gave you some very bad news and said, “You’re going to die unless you undergo surgery immediately to remove a fast growing cancer in your body.”  If you trust him, you’ll undergo the knife even though it may involve a lot of pain and recovery time.

When it comes to our spiritual health, we should also expect someone who claims to be a man of God”  to tell us the truth about our spiritual condition, even if it’s painful and hard to take. Only then can the proper measures be taken to cure the problem and save us from eternal separation from God in the lake of fire. Sadly, there are many false teachers who do not believe the Scriptures and who will tell people what they want to hear (2 Timothy 4:1-4; 2 Peter 2:1 ff).

Where Did I Come From?

Those who don’t want to be held accountable to God for their actions find it much easier to accept the theory of evolution even though the odds of its happening are beyond our imagination. It’s almost as absurd as believing that a car can evolve over millions of years by accident or that a tornado going over a junk yard can assemble a 747 jet.

The other option is to accept the Biblical account of the origin of life as found in the Scriptures (Genesis 1, 2; Matthew 19:4). This seems much easier to believe than the theory of evolution. It takes too much faith to believe in atheism and evolution.

Why Am I Here On Earth?

Those who believe the theory of evolution seem to think of life as being purposeless and futile. It involves the survival of the fittest and believing that you are the “captain of your ship and the master of your fate.”  They think that whatever their mind can conceive they can achieve and make it happen.

Those who believe in a Creator God and His Word, have been given the reason for their existence on earth – to come to an understanding and belief/trust in the true and living God (John 17:3) and to make Him known to others (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Where Will I Go When I Die?

Those who believe in atheism and evolution usually believe all consciousness ceases at the time of physical death. Some folks believe in reincarnation.

Those who accept God’s Word to be true believe there are two destinies: everlasting pleasures in the presence of God for believers (Psalm 16:11; 2 Corinthians 5:8) or  torment with the devil and his angels/demons in the lake of fire forever for those who are unbelievers (Matthew 25:41, 46).

How Serious Is Our Condition?

You may not want to hear this, but the Scriptures are true (John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17). We’re all born into this world spiritually dead – separated from God (Ephesians 2:1, 5). We all inherited a sinful nature/disposition from our parents (Psalm 51:5; 1 John 1:8). We ignore or treat God as our enemy (Romans 5:8,10; Psalm 2:1 ff). We are totally depraved (Romans 3:10-23; Jeremiah 17:9). We aren’t as bad as we could be, but we are as bad off as we could possibly be. We all deserve eternal condemnation with the devil and his angels (Romans 6:23; Matthew 25:41, 46). Perhaps without our knowing it, we are being energized by Satan (John 8:44; Ephesians 2:2) and we don’t seek God (Romans 3:11). Our understanding is darkened (Ephesians 4:18) and we have warped emotions (Ephesians 2:3). We can’t do anything to please God (Romans 8:8; Isaiah 64:6). We don’t choose God (John 15:16) and we’re all guilty of lawless behavior (Romans 3:19, 23; 1 John 3:4). There aren’t any good works that we can do to save ourselves (Romans 3:20; Ephesians 2:8, 9). We are helpless (Romans 5:6), hopeless (Ephesians 2:12), and hell bound (Romans 6:23).

This diagnosis may be a difficult truth for us to accept. But there is a competent and loving Physician (Jesus Christ) who can deliver us from eternal condemnation (Matthew 25:41, 46; John 16:11). He paid the debt for our sins that we owed to God (Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:2; 4:10).

Our Choice

You and I have a choice to make. We can agree with God and accept the provision that He has made for us through Jesus Christ so we don’t have to be eternally separated from Him, or we can reject His offer of salvation and the truth that is found in the Scriptures and hope that what it says isn’t true.

By one simple act of faith, anyone can be saved (John 3:16, 18, 36). We must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ who died for our sins…and rose again bodily on the third day (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). We are not saved by faith plus our good works lest anyone should boast (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5).

If you’re still an unbeliever, what it keeping you from trusting in Christ alone to save you right now? “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul” (Mark 8:36)?


Yes, we can know that we will go to heaven the moment we die (1 John 5:13; Romans 8:16). The only unforgivable sin today is the sin of unbelief in Christ (John 16:8-11). True believers are secure in God the Father’s hands and in God the Son’s hands (John 10:28, 29). They are also sealed by God the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13; 4:30). Nothing can separate a true believer from God’s love (Romans 8:35-39).

Evolution or Creation:

The Big Bang:

Dr. C. R. Swindoll, Growing Deep In The Christian Life”

Dr. H. L. Schafer, “Maturing In Christ”


Try to imagine a sports event without any rules or refs. That’s ridiculous. Not only do the players need to know the rules, the referees also need to know them very well and enforce them or they will be out of a job. Do you think people would pay big bucks to go to an event without rules and referees? Every sports event needs them.

Anarchy. Believe it or not, there are people who think that a society can exist without rules and referees. That is ridiculous. Anarchy would prevail. The rules need to apply to all people or there will be resentment among those who are treated by different standards. This seems to be a major problem in our society today. Do you agree?

Enslavement. When everyone makes up his own set of rules and does what is right in his own eyes (Judges 17:6; 21:25), enslavement follows (Judges 2:10-15). This happened multiple times in Israel’s history during the days of the Judges. They went from rebellion to retribution to repentance to restoration. The Jews disregarded the laws that God had given to them at Mt. Sinai and so God allowed enemy nations to overtake the Jews and enslave them until they cried out to God for deliverance. This went on many times for several hundred years until the people demanded a king (1 Samuel 8:5). As long as the king was a righteous king, who enforced God’s laws, things were fine. But when the king disregarded God’s laws himself, and was capricious and fickle, there were problems. “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when the wicked man rules, the people groan” (Proverbs 29:2).

Nations. God scattered the rebellious people at Babel whom He had told to spread out over the whole earth to populate it (Genesis 9:1; 11:8). But while they were in the process of building a tower toward heaven, God came down and changed their languages so they couldn’t communicate with each other. As they spread out, they intermarried among themselves and certain genes became dominant, causing different skin colors and some other features. Folks, there is only one race, the human race (Acts 17:26). See

Continents. During this time, the continental shift began to take in the days of a man named Peleg (Genesis 10:25). It’s not hard to see how the continents almost fit together if you moved them closer to each other.

N.W.O. God is opposed to the New Word Order that men want to establish without Him. But He will allow them (perhaps very soon) to try their experiment for seven years. If it went on any longer than this, no flesh would survive (Mark 13:20). The unholy trinity, consisting of the devil, the man of sin (Antichrist), and the false prophet will dominate the people of this world (Revelation 13). During this awful period of human history, over ½ of the world’s population will die (Revelation 6:8; 9:15). Those who don’t take the mark of the beast (666) will not be able to buy or sell and most of them will perish (Revelation 13:17). The apostate, one world church will also be in operation at this time (Revelation 17, 18). Believers who are living during this time will be told, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and you receive her plagues” (Revelation 18:4). The same truth applies to Christians today. “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers” (2 Corinthians 6:14). Beware of the ecumenical movement that is encouraging all religions to band together to bring peace to earth.

Government. God is the One who instituted human government right after the universal flood of Noah’s day (Genesis 9:6). This includes the responsibility of capital punishment for certain crimes against humanity (Romans 13:4). Any form of government is better than no government. The government’s job is to enforce the laws for the good of the people (Romans 13). Sometimes the laws of men conflict with God’s laws. When this happens, believers must obey God rather than man (Acts 5:29) and be willing to suffer unjustly (1 Peter 2:19).

O.S.N. All of us are born with an old sinful nature (a rebellious disposition) that was passed down to us from our parents (Psalm 51:5). Those who say that they don’t have one are deceiving themselves (1 John 1:8). Christians don’t lose their O.S.N. when they get saved (Romans 7:15-25). But we do participate in the Divine nature (2 Peter 1:4) when we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins…and rose again bodily on the third day (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

Captain. Most people don’t like to be told what to do. Like the devil, we want to live independently of God (Isaiah 14:14; James 4:13). We want to be the captain of our own ship and the master of our own fate. Sorry, you aren’t and can’t be. Jesus said, “Without Me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5). “…in Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28). Some day you will give an account of yourself to Him (Romans 14:12; Hebrews 4:13; 9:27).

Questions. Could you be living a miserable, vain life because you are trying to live without God in your life as King Solomon did (Ecclesiastes 1:2)? Are you sure you know where you will go when you die? Upon what is your belief based? Would you like some answers from God’s Word which is true and trustworthy (John 17:17)?

Gospel In Less Than 25 Words:

God’s Simple Plan Of Salvation in 24 languages.


John 8:14-19

Whether you believe in creation or evolution, you must accept what you believe by faith. We weren’t there in the beginning. The teaching of creation is more plausible but not as accepted as the theory of evolution. Creation implies accountability; evolution doesn’t. Having to give an account to Someone who is all knowing for everything we’ve ever thought, said, or done is a frightful concept that we wish wouldn’t happen (2 Corinthians 5:10; Romans 14:12; Matthew 12:36). But whether we like it or not, we will be held accountable someday (Hebrews 9:27).

Rejection. Because many people deliberately choose to ignore or dismiss the revelation/information concerning God that comes from nature (Psalm 19:1), and from the prophets whom God chose to dispense truth to us (2 Peter 1:21), God often allows them to descend into the grossest forms of depravity (Romans 1:18-32). They call good evil, and evil is called good (Isaiah 5:20). The wicked seem to prosper while the righteous suffer (Psalm 37:34-36). Because Christians are not of this world (John 17:14-16; Philippians 3:20), they often are marginalized and persecuted for their faith as Jesus predicted (John 15:20; 16:2; 2 Timothy 3:12).

Murder. Because of His popularity with the common people and the authoritative way He taught them (Matthew 7:29; John 12:19), the scribes of Pharisees envied Him and wanted to do away with Him by killing Him (John 5:18; 7:1). He didn’t meet their particular expectations even though the former prophets had made it clear as to when, where, why, and how Christ would come to earth. Their spiritual eyes were blinded by their father the devil (John 8:44; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Romans 11:25).  Are your spiritual eyes blinded too (1 Corinthians 2:14)?  Would you like to see and know “The Truth” (John 14:6; 17:17).

Origin. Christ’s enemies questioned His parentage (John 8:19). They considered Him to be born out of wedlock (John 8:41) even though the prophet had said that He would be born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; See Matthew 1:23). He performed three types of miracles to prove that He was who He claimed to be – the eternal “I AM” (John 5:18; 8:58; Acts 2:22), the Messiah/Christ and the Son of God (John 20:31).

Incarnation. During the council meeting between the three Persons in the Godhead (Ephesians 1:11), God the Son volunteered to be the One who would identify Himself with mankind by adding to His deity a true human nature and a real human body (Philippians 2:5-9; Hebrews 10:5). He is referred to as “the first born over all creation” (Colossians 1:15-17). At least one cult [1] has taken this to mean that Jesus was the first One whom God the Father created and that Jesus then created all “other” things. They add the word “other” four times to this text which isn’t there in the original Greek language in which the New Testament was written.

Clarification. “However, if this verse were teaching that Jesus Christ is the first created being made by Jehovah, the word “first-created” would have been used of Christ, not the word “firstborn.” These are two different words in the Greek, with two different meanings. “First-created” is protoktistos, and “firstborn” is prototokos. Colossians 1:15 does not use the word protoktistos, “first-created”. Instead it uses prototokos. The latter word means an heir, a begotten one, the first in rank. The teaching of Colossians 1:15, then, is that Christ is first in rank above all creation; He is the heir of all things. He is prior to all creation and superior over it as the Lord.” – Roy Zuck [1]

Crucial. Understanding this is crucial to one’s eternal destiny. If Jesus isn’t equal to God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, His death has no value to us. The reality of His death for our sins on the cross (Philippians 2:8; 3:18) comes from the fact that He was/is a true human being. God cannot die. The value of His death comes from His being God in human flesh (John 1:1-18), the eternal “I AM” (John 8:58). “For in Him [Jesus Christ] dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9).

Resurrection. Without the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day (Luke 24:33-43; 1 Corinthians 15:1-58), we’d have no hope of our being resurrected and we would still be in our sins. His resurrection assures us that everyone who has died will be raised from the dead, each in his own order (1 Corinthians 15:22-24). Everyone will be judged by Jesus, the righteous Judge (John 5:22; 2 Timothy 4:8).  Our degree of pleasure in God’s presence or our degree of suffering with the devil and his angels/demons in the lake of fire will be determined when we are judged by Him (1 Corinthians 3:11-15; Revelation 20:10-15; 21:8). There is more than one judgment and one general resurrection of the dead at the end of time. Do you know how many there are and in which one you will participate (Hebrews 9:27)?

Today In Heaven. Have you ever wondered what Jesus is doing ever since His bodily resurrection and ascension back to heaven (Acts1:9-11; See Hebrews 7:25; Ephesians 1:22)? Whom did He take with Him when He ascended back to heaven? In what part of heaven do they reside (2 Corinthians 12:4)? Will this be their final destination (Matthew 5:5; Romans 4:13)? What spiritual gifts did He give to whom and why (Ephesians 4:8-16)? Are all of these gifts still being given to believers today (1 Corinthians 13:10)?

Faith. Our eternal destiny will be determined by our belief or unbelief (John 3:16, 18, 36; 16:9; Ephesians 2:8, 9). Salvation is always by God’s grace through faith and not of works (Ephesians 2:8,9).  My friend, Christ died for your sins and mine. He was buried for three days and nights in a tomb. But He rose again on the third day with a body of flesh and bones but one without blood (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4, 50). Knowing and believing these facts aren’t enough to save you. You must transfer your faith from yourself and your good works over to the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ on your behalf (Acts 16:31). If you’ve never done this before, why not do this right now? Once you do this, you will receive the assurance that comes from God the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16) and from the Scriptures (1 John 5:13).

Help.

Clear Gospel:

God’s Simple Plan Of Salvation in 24 languages.

Contrary to what some people believe, God’s offer of deliverance/salvation from the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41, 46; Revelation 21:8) to heaven is limited to those who are physically alive on earth but spiritually dead (separated from God – Ephesians 2:1).  There are no second chances to be saved, once you are physically dead (Hebrews 9:27). The truthful Scriptures (John 17:17) don’t teach reincarnation. This false teaching gives people a false hope that perhaps if they haven’t been good enough on earth, they will come back in some other form to try again to earn their way to a better place. Our salvation is not based on our good works lest anyone should boast (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5). It was purchased at great cost by Christ’s precious blood when He died on the cross (1 Peter 1:18, 19; 3:18). It’s offered freely to all those who belong to the human race (John 3:16, 18, 36; 1 John 2:2). We all come from one man and woman (Adam and Eve – Romans 5:12). There is only one race – the “human race” but many ethnic groups who speak many languages (Acts 17:26). These groups and languages came into existence at the tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9). Evolution is a theory (not a fact) that runs contrary to the teachings of the Scriptures (Genesis 1:26-2:7). Salvation isn’t offered to the devil or the fallen angels/demons. They believe in God and tremble but they aren’t and can’t be saved (James 2:19; Matthew 4:3; 8:29).

Deliverance/Salvation. If you’re reading this, you have the opportunity to be saved if you aren’t saved already. To be saved, you must “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ” exclusively (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 16:31) through the message of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-8). “Christ [of the Scriptures, not the cults] died [once and for all – Hebrews 10:10] for our sins [because you are a sinner like all the rest of us (Romans 3:10-23) and you, like we, deserve to be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire (Romans 6:23). Jesus was buried in a tomb for three days (Matthew 12:40; John 2:19; 10:15-18) to prove that He had died and paid the penalty for our sins. But He rose again bodily on the third day.” His bodily resurrection was validated by over 500 witnesses over a 40 day period of time (Luke 24:33-43; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Romans 4:25). His resurrection guarantees the resurrection of all those who die (1 Corinthians 15:20-26). Some will be raised to spend eternity with God and others will be raised and judged at the Great White Throne (Revelation 20:1-15).  All of them will be sent to the lake of fire to suffer forever where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:30, 41, 46). My friend, we don’t want you to go there. This is why we write these articles to help you avoid that awful place. Then Jesus ascended literally, gradually, and publicly in the presence of His disciples back into heaven from where He came (Acts 1:9-11; John 3:13).

Scoffers. There are many scoffers today (2 Peter 3:3) who deny the literal, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Church (2 John 1:7), known also as “The Body of Christ” (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 12:12, 13; 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Seven years after the Rapture Jesus will return to this earth to rule and reign as the King of kings, and Lord of lords for 1,000 years (Acts 1:9-11; Matthew 24:29ff; Revelation 19:16; 20:1-7).

Normal/Literal Interpretation. Some of these people who believe that the prophecies concerning Christ’s first coming were fulfilled literally, don’t believe that the prophecies concerning His second coming are to be taken literally. Are they in for a shock? Yes!  About one third of the Bible was prophetic in nature when it was written. Ignoring Bible prophecy has many ramifications. These people won’t be loving His imminent return and consequently they won’t earn the “Crown of Righteousness” (2 Timothy 4:8). The “Rapture” is a “Comforting Hope” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), a “Blessed Hope” (Titus 2:13),  and a “Purifying Hope” (1 John 3:3). Our hope is not wishful thinking but a confident expectation based on promises from God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2; John 14:6).
