DREAMS AREN'T PROOF
Every so often someone writes about some dream they've had with prophetic images, and wants us to interpret and or share the dream as Bible prophecy.
Although I have VERY FEW TIMES, judged a dream to be from God, and given an interpretation to certain individuals, I've never passed myself off as an interpreter of dreams.
Dreams are not the Bible.
Dreams DON'T PROVE anything.
Although God can and has used dreams at times to communicate important things to those He's chosen for significant roles, that is not His primary means of communicating.
His main methods of communication are His Spirit and His Word.
Yes, He gave Pharaoh a dream that Joseph interpreted.
He gave Nebuchadnezzar a dream that Daniel interpreted.
He gave Jesus' stepfather Joseph a dream about taking Jesus to Egypt and out of Herod's assassin reach.
But most people AREN'T Joseph or Daniel.
And most dreams (the vast majority) come from our subconscious and not from God.
Again: most dreams (the vast majority) COME FROM OUR SUBCONSCIOUS and NOT FROM God.
So, just because someone had a vivid dream, with prophetic imagery, that doesn't mean you or I can base doctrine or teaching on it.
The internet is TEEMING with people who claim to have had "dreams from the Lord" about the Rapture.
It’s also filled with dreams and “visions” about some great tragedy like an asteroid hitting the earth, or a large quake or tidal wave wiping out certain nations or parts of the United States.
What they all have in common is that they never come true.
The other thing most of them share is that they appear today and disappear two months later, after the alleged "dream or vision from God" doesn't materialize.
I'm human and make mistakes like everyone else, albeit UNKNOWINGLY and UNINTENTIONALLY.
But we've been on cyberspace for over a decade. Glory to Jesus!
And, Lord willing, I don't plan to disappear any time soon. At least not until the Rapture takes place.
I have once or twice shared vivid dreams with scriptural content (that others have sent in) and VERY CLEARLY said "JUDGE IT by spirit. This ISN'T Scripture. You don't have to receive it as Truth".
We base our teaching on the Bible, on reputable recorded history, or both.
I've had some pretty vivid dreams myself regarding the Rapture.
I've never shared them publicly or taught ANYTHING based on my dreams.
Consequently, WE CAN'T and WON'T PUBLISH every dream that everyone has and thinks it has prophetic meaning.
If someone has such dream, the best thing to do is to write it down, keep it in your heart, go before God, and ask His Holy Spirit that IF the dream indeed came from Him, to reveal His intended meaning.
Then WAIT FOR HIS ANSWER.
After all, if the dream or vision was given TO YOU, even if it was from God, it was primarily FOR YOU, and not for everyone else.
Therefore, you DON'T NEED ME as "interpreter" or intermediary.
There's NO BETTER INTERPRETER OF DREAMS - IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE -
than the Holy Spirit.
And every born again child of God has DIRECT ACCESS to Him.

THE GREAT MIRAGE
If we have ETERNAL Life, then it’s ETERNAL and nothing and NO ONE, least of all Satan, can take it away from us.
If we have eternal Life, then we’ve ALWAYS had it and NEVER LOST IT.
NOT EVEN in Eden.
What we lost in Eden is THE PERCEPTION of Oneness with Eternal Life (Jesus).
The human soul was deceived and sinned.
And lost the PERCEPTION of THE ETERNAL (God, I am) and became SUBJECT to THE FALSE NOTION OF “TIME”.
This, in turn, brought SPIRITUAL and PHYSICAL DEATH, in that order.
Physical “death” is only possible in “time”.
Physical death is ONLY TEMPORARY.
Everyone who’s ever died, as I have shared often, will be resurrected AT SOME POINT:
Believers will rise first, then tribulation believers, then the Two Witnesses, then ALL WHO HAVE DIED without Christ.
THAT PROVES that PHYSICAL death IS A LIE.
THAT THE ONLY TRUTH is ETERNAL LIFE (Jesus). (Exodus 3:14; John 14:6)
Therefore, those who DO NOT RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE (Jesus) SENTENCE THEMSELVES to ETERNAL DEATH.
SPIRITUAL DEATH is NOT ceasing to exist: it is eternal existence IN TORMENT, in THE HORRIFIC NOTION OF BEING ETERNALLY SEPARATED FROM Him who IS Eternal Life.
It is being TORTURED BY HIS CONSUMING FIRE, WITHOUT ever being consumed.
God (eternal Life) is a consuming fire: (Deuteronomy 4:24; Isaiah 33:14)
His fire can purify, glorify and ignite the greatest spiritual passion to the point of ELEVATING and TRANSLATING (rapturing) us into THE HIGHEST DIMENSION.
Or it can TORMENT those who have rejected Him with the regret of WHAT THEY COULD HAVE BEEN – and forever LOST.
Bottom Line: The Consuming Fire (God) is ETERNAL.
If we BECOME like the Fire, we are glorified by Him AND BLESSED BEYOND human comprehension.
If we RESIST the Fire, we become anti-Fire and IT WILL BURN US FOREVER.

ROT IN HELL, FIDEL
There’s a new resident in hell, and he’s in a terrible place.
As I have shared before, there are degrees of punishment in hell.
And this guy is IN THE VERY WORST.
And DESERVEDLY so !
No longer can he call the shots and have others tortured IN THE MOST VILE WAYS IMAGINABLE and executed at will.
No longer can he delight in murdering over 200,000 in his infamous firing squads.
No longer can he confiscate their property.
No longer can he divide families.
No longer can he shoot those who are so desperate to leave his hellhole they decide to brave the Florida Straits sometimes on top of an old tire, or a flimsy mattress, trying to float their way to freedom.
No longer can he send thousands to rot in horrendous prisons, just for opposing him.
No longer can he oppress anyone.
No longer can he impose his will on hapless citizens of a prison island.
And no longer will he be a “folk hero” to stupid Hollywood nitwits or to the godless secular media, who calls “good” evil and evil “good”.
THE TABLES HAVE TURNED.
This evil, evil man who caused SO MUCH PAIN -- to SO MANY -- is being judged ACCORDING TO all the evil that he did.
Do I delight in his demise?
I wish he’d repented, received Christ and been saved.
On the other hand, I have to honor God because He is very compassionate, but also VERY JUST.
This wicked bastard had 90 YEARS on this earth to change his mind and heart.
That’s way more than most people ever get.
And this spawn of Satan STEADFASTLY shunned good and CHOSE EVIL.
Those who deny Jesus and reject His offer of FREE FORGIVENESS to all who receive Him into their hearts, and TRUST HIM completely for salvation – WILL BE JUDGED ACCORDINGLY.
ALL those who REJECT His Grace, will get His RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT.
And those who’ve been THEIR VICTIMS WILL finally GET JUSTICE and be VINDICATED.
The old communist now KNOWS there’s a God, KNOWS that God is Jesus, and KNOWS that there’s a hell.
Rarely would I approve of celebrating anyone’s death. But there are a few instances when it is warranted. (2 Chronicles 23:21; Proverbs 29:2; Isaiah 14:3-11)
That’s why I’m not critical of those who poured out into the streets to celebrate Castro’s death.
I would have been critical if THEY HADN’T.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2016
It’s been a busy month here in the United States, first with the General Election, and all the commotion going on in its aftermath, then with Thanksgiving and Black Friday which, for retailers, marks the beginning of the annual Christmas shopping madness.
Meanwhile A LOT is going on in certain parts of the world, most notably in Syria, France and Israel.
As I mentioned recently, Vladimir Putin is determined to destroy all opposition to the totalitarian rule of Bashar al Assad, even if he has to totally destroy that country – and most of its population, including many children – in the process.
And, taking full advantage of Obama’s weakness and of the fact that he has 56 days left as President, he seems to want to get the job done BEFORE Trump’s inauguration.
The people of Syria have endured horrific suffering for the past 6 years.
There are no words to describe the hardship and carnage.
Then there’s France, where a terror attack in Paris was recently foiled (thank God!).
However, an elderly woman in a home for monks in southwestern France was not so lucky, as she was killed by a Muslim terrorist.
This just a couple of months after Islamic terrorists entered a church in Normandy, forced the 85-year old priest to his knees and decapitated him.
And several cities in Israel have had to be evacuated due to Muslim savages SETTING THEM ON FIRE: among them Haifa, and Beth Shemesh which is pretty close to Jerusalem.
A Muslim imam in Canada actually prayed to “allah” to burn ALL of Israel.
In other words, they’d rather SET FIRE TO AND DESTROY the Holy Land than allow Israel to possess the Land given to them BY GOD as eternal possession.
It appears that those “nice”, “peace loving” Muslims who practice a “religion of love and peace” have come up with a new form of terror: ARSON.
As these brutal demoniacs are setting fires all over Israel, fire fighters and other first responders are tackling more than they can handle.
Please wonderful intercessors, please brothers and sisters, PRAY FOR ISRAEL.
Let’s take DOMINION OF the atmosphere over that country and MAKE this awful arson fires to STOP.

"Because THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST (ANTI) God: for IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO the law of God, neither indeed can be" (Romans 8:7).
Once upon a time in Church history the written Word of God was locked up in monasteries and available ONLY to clergy.
It was INACCESSIBLE to the faithful.
Consequently, they could only get the Word "filtered" through TOTALITARIAN, DICTATORIAL religious hierarchy.
What religious despots SAID IT SAID, or said it MEANT, was to be accepted WITHOUT QUESTION, whether it was true or not.
History is witness to the DISASTROUS consequences of such tyranny: flagrant anti-Semitism, horrible "crusades", the INFAMOUS, UNHOLY INQUISITION, and other barbaric atrocities too numerous to mention.
DESPITE such OPPRESSION, God managed to get through to a German monk named Martin Luther, who realized the DECEPTION, greed, and desperate need for reform.
His message was welcomed by many as a breath of fresh air, hope and FREEDOM:
"I don't need some stuffy, biased, out of touch religious tyrant telling me what HE SAYS God said. I can read what God ACTUALLY said FOR MYSELF".
One of the welcomed reforms that Luther brought was that believers did not have to BLINDLY ACCEPT what religious leaders taught as scriptural Truth, but were to allow the Holy Spirit, the Author of the whole Bible, to reveal His TRUE INTENT.
However, when dealing with EXTREMES, the pendulum tends to swing, not to the middle, but to the OTHER extreme.
Such has been the case among Evangelicals and others.
Somehow this freedom was misconstrued to mean that "I can NOW INTERPRET the Bible to mean WHAT I THINK it means".
Some even took it up another notch and said "I'm going to filter God's word through my PERSONAL OPINION, add a good dose of prejudice, an even greater measure of fear, and establish my own religion.
If those guys in Rome could get away with it, so can I.
I will use people's disdain for Rome's historical abuses and claim to be THE ANTITHESIS: that they were wrong, that all others are wrong, and that MY RELIGION is the ONLY correct one.
Then I will BRAINWASH my followers with my doctrine".
The result has been 230 major disputatious denominations, each having many sub-groups, not to mention AN EVER GROWING NUMBER OF CULTS who no more teach the Word of God than I teach Mein Kampf.
All this coupled with the computer age has produced A LETHAL MIX OF RELIGIOUS DECEPTION which Jesus foresaw 2,000 years ago and pointedly warned would be the hallmark of our time (Matthew 24:4-8).
NOWHERE does the word of God say we are to INTERPRET IT.
Repeat: NOWHERE does the Word of God says we are TO INTERPRET IT with our corrupt, carnal minds.
As the anchor Scripture above says, our natural mind IS ANTI-God and ANTI-Christ.
Our natural minds ARE IN ENMITY AGAINST God. They are AT WAR AGAINST God.
And you're going to TRUST THAT MANURE-FILLED CESSPOOL to tell you WHAT A HOLY, HOLY, HOLY God said and meant?
NOWHERE does the word of God authorize ANYONE TO CAPRICIOUSLY STATE "I think that means thus and so".
NOWHERE does the Word of God authorize ANYONE (listen up, prophecy gurus) to say "I BELIEVE the Antichrist is alive", or "I BELIEVE he will sign a 7-year peace treaty with Israel" or "I BELIEVE we're headed for a cashless society" or "I BELIEVE there are NO SIGNS that precede the Rapture" or, for that matter "I BELIEVE" ANYTHING.
WHO CARES WHAT YOU BELIEVE?
The ONLY thing that matters is WHAT GOD SAYS.
Repeat: The ONLY Truth, and consequently, THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS, is WHAT GOD says.
What you THINK, what you BELIEVE, YOUR OPINION or MINE, about any Bible related topic ARE IRRELEVANT and of NO USE TO ANYONE, let alone to the Kingdom of the Most High.
And if our beliefs CONTRADICT Scripture, as is often the case, particularly in the areas of Salvation and Bible prophecy, they ARE WORTHLESS ABOMINATIONS.
When we STUDY the Word of God, we are to regard it as what He is: HOLY.
We are to approach Him-it with GREAT RESPECT and REVERENCE.
We are to seek the Spirit of God WITHIN US, who INSPIRED that Word.
We are to ask Him to guide us and REVEAL TO US not what "we believe" but what He intended to say, but WHAT HE ACTUALLY MEANT.
We are to ALLOW HIM to unveil and UNFOLD the meaning of His HOLY Word to us.
We are to focus on Him - tell our carnal minds to SHUT UP, and LISTEN TO THE SPIRIT.
We are to have the attitude that Jesus exemplified in the Garden of Gethsemane:
NOT as I will, Father, but AS YOU WILL. (Matthew 26:39)
Those who approach God's Word with a PRECONCEIVED AGENDA, or some religious bias, are downright DISHONEST.
Truth is found ONLY when we're humbly WILLING to accept God’s Word, REGARDLESS of what He-it may be.
As long as we fail to humble ourselves and YIELD TO HIS WILL, WE WILL LIVE IN DECEPTION, DECEIVING OTHERS AND BEING DECEIVED:
Ever "learning", but NEVER COMING TO the KNOWLEDGE OF the Truth.
God doesn't need "interpreters". He speaks VERY CLEARLY.
His Spirit will speak DIRECTLY and CLEARLY to your heart, if you ask Him, IF YOU ARE WILLING to receive Truth, and then He will back it up SOLIDLY with His written Word.
What He needs is people who TOTALLY LOVE HIM and want THE Truth (Jesus) AT ALL COSTS and ABOVE ALL ELSE.

ALL THE WAY
Jesus is about to return. When He does, His Appearance will rapture us, and translate us in an instant, into the Spirit realm.
That realm is MORE REAL than the physical.
The visible, physical realm is only temporary. The invisible, spirit realm is eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Therefore, EVERYTHING we presently see around us will dissolve. It will be no more.
The physical is about to give way to the eternal.
If we were in the spirit realm we would see each other, touch each other, and communicate with each other, just like we do in the earthly realm: Actually, far better.
I'm addressing this message primarily to those who SAY they're Christian, but whose hearts and minds are far from the Lord.
Professing Christians who have a long list of priorities ahead of Jesus…
Who believe with their heads, but have never REALLY GIVEN Jesus THEIR HEARTS.
Who call themselves believers, but have NO INTIMATE, PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with the Savior…
Who THINK they're Christian because their ancestors claimed to be.
Or because they DO good deeds, attend Sunday school, BELONG TO A PARTICULAR DENOMINATION, or participated in some religious ritual like first communion, confirmation, or even water baptism.
ANY church ritual you participate in, where YOUR HEART isn't TOTALLY involved is an EMPTY, MEANINGLESS ritual.
Despite some or all of the above, you have never REALLY GIVEN YOUR HEART TO JESUS.
YOU HAVE NEVER MADE JESUS NUMBER ONE IN YOUR LIFE.
I'm talking about giving Jesus EVERYTHING: Your heart, your mind, your body, your possessions, your life, your dreams, your ambitions, your time, your talents.
I'm talking TOTAL, ALL-OUT, NO HOLDS BARRED, 100% COMMITMENT TO HIM.
Matthew 7:22 talks about a bunch of people who will say to Jesus "didn't we DO many wonderful WORKS in your name?
And He will answer "I NEVER KNEW YOU".
It’s NOT about “doing”: it’s about KNOWING (in the biblical sense).
It’s about TRUSTING Jesus completely.
If you REALLY KNOW and TRUST Jesus, you’ll hold NOTHING BACK from Him.
Again: If you REALLY KNOW and TRUST Jesus, you’ll hold NOTHING BACK from Him.
He becomes YOUR VERY LIFE.
Do you KNOW Jesus? I don't mean His Name. Do you KNOW HIM as a Person, as your God, your Lord, and your spiritual Lover?
If you don't, I urge you to “do”.
The time for tepid Christianity is over.
If you call yourself “Christian”, then BE ONE with CHRIST: ALL THE TIME, ALL THE WAY.

LIVING OF THE GOSPEL
“Even so the Lord has ordained that they which preach the Gospel should live of the Gospel.” (1 Corinthians 9:14)
This verse is regularly quoted, OUT OF CONTEXT, by greedy preachers trying to justify their opulent lifestyle with Scripture.
God’s Word is very clear:
Those who preach the Gospel are TO LIVE OF the Gospel.
They are to MAKE A LIVING, and support themselves and their families FROM preaching the Gospel.
Problem is, a lot of religious people who CLAIM to be “ministers of Christ’ and CLAIM to “preach the Gospel” DO NEITHER.
They DO NOT preach the Gospel: they preach man-invented religion.
Nor were they ever CALLED BY JESUS into His ministry.
They DO NOT tell the LOST how to be saved.
What they do is LIE and tell dumb Christians HOW TO GET RICH by (supposedly) giving TO THEM!!!
The other problem is that the Scripture says they are TO LIVE of the Gospel. It does not say they are to BECOME RICH from preaching the Gospel.
Therefore, even if they make a perfunctory, two-minute pitch on how to receive Christ and be saved, THAT DOES NOT ENTITLE THEM TO BECOME FILTHY RICH AT THE EXPENSE OF GOD’S DUMB SHEEP.
If their unbiblical “excuse” were correct, then we should see AT LEAST ONE of Jesus’ 12 Apostles becoming rich from their preaching which, coincidentally, WAS FAR SUPERIOR to the diluted rhetoric we hear today.
Peter was Jesus’ handpicked leader of the 12. Did Peter GET RICH from preaching?
No. He was entrusted by Jesus with ministering to Jews and Israelites (Galatians 2:7) and he “fed Jesus’ sheep” as instructed. (John 21:17)
He remained a lowly fisherman ALL OF HIS LIFE.
He died in Jerusalem and was buried without pomp or circumstance in a common cemetery, his remains placed in a plain ossuary simply etched with the phrase “Simon bar Jonah”.
Peter NEVER SAT on a fancy throne, never lived in a fancy palace filled with priceless paintings, sculptures and tapestries, never wore fancy religious garments, never walked around holding a staff with a crucifix on top, never wore a fancy ring, or asked anyone to kneel before him and kiss that ring.
2. Well, that was Peter. But certainly John MUST have gotten rich. After all, he is called “the disciple that Jesus loved”. (John 21:20)
After all, Jesus EVEN ENTRUSTED HIS MOTHER MARY to John’s care. (John 19:26-27)
Surely God blessed him with prosperity.
After all, Jesus would have wanted HIS OWN MOTHER TO LIVE IN LUXURY.
John and Mary lived MODEST lives commuting back and forth between Jerusalem and Ephesus in Turkey.
At some point Mary passed away, and John would eventually be BANISHED to a barren penal colony, in a tiny island named Patmos, where he was instructed to write the Book of Revelation.
No luxury, no beautiful clothes, no money, no fancy carriages, and God only knows WHAT he got to eat and drink, or even HOW OFTEN.
Well, what about James?
He was one of the three disciples closest to Jesus, along with Peter and John.
He was at the Mount of Transfiguration and GOT TO SEE JESUS TRANSFIGURED from mortal to immortal (Matthew 17:1-2)
Hate to tell you this, but James NEVER BECAME RICH EITHER.
In fact, he was incarcerated AND THEN BEHEADED by wicked Herod shortly after Jesus’ Ascension. (Acts 12:2)
Well, then certainly Paul must have gotten rich from preaching the Gospel!
Lord knows Paul was THE MOST PROLIFIC PREACHER OF THE GOSPEL IN HISTORY.
He wrote TWO THIRDS OF the New Testament!
He was even "caught up" to Paradise IN A PRIVATE Rapture!!! (2 Corinthians 12:1-5)
Paul did live “OF” the Gospel, as God always provided temporary food and lodging for him in the homes of certain believers. He also provided for travel expenses and other temporal needs.
Did Paul become rich from his outstanding preaching?
He ended his days in a dark, squalid, roach infested, rat infested, putrid, smelly prison, were he couldn’t even see the light of day. (Philippians 1:13-14)
No fancy ANYTHING for Paul: And NO WEALTH.
His amazing life on earth came to and end when wicked Nero ordered his decapitation. (2 Timothy 4:6-7)
Therefore, when some religious charlatan uses this verse as a convenient “excuse” to “justify” his excess, his hypocrisy, and his greed…
When he or she MANIPULATES this verse in order to convince you TO SEND MONEY to him or her…
Tell them: “if what you say is true, if the “give in order to get” “prosperity Gospel” you preach is true, then we must see it WORKING in the Apostles that Jesus personally called and chose TO SPREAD HIS MESSAGE.
Since we DON’T see it IN ANY OF THE APOSTLES’ lives or ministries – and they were FAR BETTER PREACHERS THAN YOU ARE – your message is FALSE.”

WITHHOLDING IS SIN
“…whoever KNOWS THE RIGHT THING TO DO and FAILS TO DO IT, FOR HIM IT IS SIN.” (James 4:17)
When God gives us some special knowledge, revelation, or experience, it is NOT intended for us TO SELL IT, or TO HOARD IT.
It is NOT FOR OUR OWN self-aggrandizement, NOT ONLY for our own benefit, but FOR THE BENEFIT of His Body, and/or for the lost.
It is for us TO SHARE with unbelievers, with the Body of Christ, or both.
And such sharing is to be done FREE OF CHARGE.
The ONLY time we can withhold such information is when God SPECIFICALLY tells us TO DO SO -- and even then ONLY UNTIL a certain point in “time”. (Daniel 12:4,9; Revelation 10:4)
Those instances, however, are VERY RARE.
Those instances are also TEMPORARY.
Jesus told us to “go into ALL THE WORLD and PREACH the Gospel”. (Mark 16:15)
Jesus NEVER TOLD US to “go into all the church and SELL BOOKS”
Jesus NEVER TOLD US to “go into all Christendom and SELL prophecy”, let alone LIES that WE CALL “Bible prophecy”.
Jesus NEVER TOLD US to sell our brothers and sisters ANYTHING: no CD's, no DVD's, no books, no “blood moons”, no “harbingers”, no “magical” prayers… no magical prosperity formulas… NOTHING!!!
And yet a couple days ago I tune into Fox News and this supposed “minister” of Christ appears in a PAID COMMERCIAL, peddling his book with a “magical” prayer that will (supposedly) quench fear and “keep people safe”.
There is NO SUCH THING.
Answered prayers depend in large part on deep conviction that Jesus LIVES IN us, that He is ON OUR SIDE, that we overcome the enemy by His precious and holy Blood, and that He has ALL AUTHORITY in heaven, on earth, and IN EVERY REALM of existence.
And even the faith that gives us such CONVICTION – IS A GIFT from God. (Romans 12:3; Ephesians 2:8)
We can meditate the Word, and commune with the inner Jesus in order to enhance that faith, BUT THE FAITH ITSELF COMES FROM HIM.
We can’t earn it, we can’t work for it, WE DO NOT DESERVE IT, and there are NO MAGICAL PRAYERS or MAGICAL FORMULAS to keep us safe or achieve prosperity.
The aforementioned commercial IS NOTHING BUT A RELIGIOUS CON.
And if the con artist who appears in that commercial is SO CERTAIN that his magical prayer “works”, then WHY DOESN’T HE SEND THOUSANDS OF FREE COPIES to our brothers and sisters in places like Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Nigeria, Somalia, China, Burma, North Korea and other similar places TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING SLAUGHTERED in the most heinous ways imaginable?
Anyone with even HALF a brain knows WHY.
Just like the charlatan who advertises all over the internet a “secret” verse from the Gospel of Matthew that’s supposed to magically “cure” whatever illness a person may have.
The Gospel of Matthew has been around FOR 2,000 YEARS. And there are no “secret” verses or “magical” verses that make sickness go away.
Jesus IS THE ONLY HEALER. (Mark 16:17-18)
And even JESUS told us He was “limited” to do ONLY WHAT HE SAW THE FATHER DOING. (John 5:19)
Divine Healing IS A GIFT FROM GOD’S GRACE.
Again, it cannot be earned, deserved or obtained through some “biblical” incantation.
Can you imagine some poor person afflicted with cancer or some other terminal illness, experiencing financial distress (the two usually go together) DESPERATE to be healed, and this HEARTLESS, GREEDY, MANIPULATIVE religious SWINDLER tells them “I have a magical formula FROM GOD, that will CURE YOU, but you have to send me $49.99 plus shipping in order to find out what it is?
Am I THE ONLY ONE who finds such tactics REPULSIVE?
WHERE in the Bible do we find THAT DISGUSTING marketing ploy?
Don’t be stupid, Christians!
THINK BEFORE you BUY.
Jesus instructed His disciples:
FREELY you have received, FREELY give” (Matthew 10:8)
If it COSTS YOU MONEY, it’s a worthless gimmick.
If it COSTS YOU ANYTHING other than YOUR HEART, it’s NOT FROM GOD.

A CHANCE IN HELL
“…Behold, I lay in Zion FOR a FOUNDATION a STONE, A TESTED STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE, A SURE FOUNDATION: HE THAT BELIEVES (in Him) SHALL NOT BE PUT TO SHAME.
Justice also will I make the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line…
And YOUR COVENANT WITH DEATH SHALL BE ANNULLED, and YOUR AGREEMENT WITH HELL SHALL NOT STAND”… (Isaiah 28:16-18)
In Mark 16:15-16 Jesus COMMANDED US to “GO INTO ALL THE WORLD, and PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.
HE THAT BELIEVES and is baptized SHALL BE SAVED; but HE THAT BELIEVES NOT SHALL BE CONDEMNED.”
Jesus said that those who DON’T believe will be condemned.
However, He DIDN’T say they’d have to believe IN THIS LIFE in order NOT to be condemned.
THAT idea was ADDED by religion.
Of course, THE IDEAL thing would be for everyone to believe (TRUST) Jesus COMPLETELY for Salvation in THIS life.
But we live in an imperfect world, where people and things usually fall way short of what’s ideal.
We MUST preach the Gospel TO EVERYONE, as Jesus commanded, so they can receive Him, trust Him and be saved IN THIS LIFE…
OR THE NEXT!!! (Matthew 12:32)
Contrary to what organized Christianism teaches, hell is TEMPORARY. (Revelation 20:13-14)
Hell is NOT eternal.
The lake of fire is eternal. (Revelation 20:15)
But NO ONE goes into the lake of fire until the END OF the Millennium (until AT LEAST 1,004 years from now). *
* The two exceptions being the Antichrist and the false prophet who are tossed into the lake of fire at the end of the tribulation. (Revelation 19:20)
Therefore, EVERYONE IN HELL still has A CHANCE of receiving Christ and being saved.
Salvation IS STILL POSSIBLE in hell.
Those who heard the Gospel in this life and failed to receive Christ, WILL GO TO HELL, but they CAN RECEIVE Jesus, while being in hell, and be ultimately SAVED.
And Scripture teaches that those who are in hell RETAIN THE MEMORIES of what they saw and heard IN THIS LIFE. (Luke 16:22-27)
Therefore, if they heard the Gospel while on earth, and failed to receive Jesus, THEY CAN REMEMBER that Gospel in hell itself and STILL get saved.
To my knowledge, there’s NO Gospel being preached in hell.
There are no preachers in hell, and the ones there who were preachers DIDN’T KNOW the Gospel. That’s why they went to that awful place.
That is why I T’S SO IMPORTANT that we share THE GOOD NEWS of FREE SALVATION through TRUST (faith) in Jesus – IN THIS LIFE.
After all, when they find themselves in that horrific place, they will realize that everything those dumb Christians said with regards to Salvation IS TRUE.
And, hopefully, many of them will think:
“I’m stuck in this hopeless, horrible, God-forsaken place, what the hell can I lose by giving my heart to Jesus NOW?
It may be too late, but it’s worth a try. WHAT do I have to lose by trying?”
God has promised that those WHO TURN TO JESUS WITH ALL THEIR HEARTS – even in hell itself – can still be written in the Book of Life and BE SAVED (Psalm 49:15; 86:13; 116:3-4; Hosea 13:14; Amos 9:2; Matthew 5:21-26; Revelation 20:15)
God has promised that His Word WILL NOT RETURN VOID that (sooner or later) it will do what He (THROUGH US) sends it to do and IT WILL PROSPER IN THAT UNTO WHICH HE SENDS IT. (Isaiah 55:11)
And we have a “MORE SURE Word of Prophecy”, which is MORE CERTAIN that things that we experience in space-time. (2 Peter 1:18-19)

HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE – PART 2
NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN GOD’S WORD.
As a young child, I remember hearing the word "Bible" for the first time and asking what it was.
When I was told it is "the Word OF GOD", I said "the Word OF GOD? You mean GOD wrote a book? Why haven’t I heard about it before?"
I‘ve been in love with His Word ever since.
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DOCTRINAL DIFFERENCES AMONG CHRISTIANS? WHY ARE THE "STANDARD" PROPHECY TEACHINGS IN ERROR?
Christians in general (and ministers in particular) approach the Bible WITH PRECONCEIVED IDEAS.
They’ve ALREADY DECIDED WHAT “THEY” BELIEVE.
Hence, THEY APPROACH THE BIBLE WITH A RELIGIOUS AGENDA.
They’ve already been taught certain doctrine. Therefore, they study the Bible from that doctrine’s point of view.
CONSEQUENTLY, THEY ONLY "SEE" WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE AND TURN A BLIND EYE TO EVERYTHING ELSE: TO ANYTHING THAT MAY CHALLENGE THEIR PRECONCEIVED BELIEFS.
The Bible DOES NOT CONFORM to OUR BELIEFS: our beliefs are TO CONFORM TO THE BIBLE.
LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN: INSTEAD OF MANIPULATING THE BIBLE TO CONFORM TO OUR BELIEFS, WE ARE TO MAKE OUR BELIEFS CONFORM TO THE BIBLE.
If you’re only interested in “validating” your denomination’s religious agenda, keep doing what you’re doing. And you will continue deceiving and being deceived.
If you, on the other hand, are INTERESTED IN TRUTH, then PUSH ASIDE ALL THAT RELIGIOUS GARBAGE and approach God’s Word with an open mind, and open heart, and an attitude of humility.
I promise you the scales will fall from your spiritual eyes:
You will "see" things, you’ve never seen before.
THERE’S NOTHING MORE EXCITING THAN GOD’s WORD.
The reason some find it “boring” is because they don’t understand what they’re reading, because they read it with their natural mind alone.
The Bible is A SPIRITUAL BOOK.
It was written by the Holy Spirit, thru men who were inspired by Him. (2 Peter 1:21)
If you study it only with the natural mind, a lot of things won’t make sense, and you’ll be very limited in your understanding, hence bored.
You will miss out on a whole deeper dimension of rich spiritual understanding.
We need to get IN INTIMATE COMMUNION WITH Jesus and His Holy Spirit, INSIDE of us.
Yield completely to Him, and ask Him to open your understanding, and give you divine revelation.
Our attitude should be EXACTLY THE SAME as Jesus’: “NOT AS I WILL, Father, BUT AS YOU WILL”. (Mark 14:36)
Last, but not least, there’s the issue of context:
A lot of the confusion and false teaching stems from taking God’s Word OUT OF context.
ALL cults and false “Christian” religions are based on selected portions of the Bible that they’ve distorted and taken totally out of context.
To sum up, if you want to make the most of your Bible study:
1. Set aside all preconceptions, all doctrinal agendas.
2. Get in the spirit, and humbly ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and revelation.
3. Pay careful attention to context.
When you realize that the Bible is God’s written Word, and that Jesus is His Word Incarnate, you’ll come to the realization that spending time in God’ Word IS SPENDING TIME WITH JESUS, WITH GOD HIMSELF.
It’s being imbued with His incomparable Wisdom.
The Bible is ALIVE.
It is God SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO YOU.
Please DO NOT take it for granted.
Study it like this, on a regular basis, and you’ll never want to stop.
You’ll treasure His Word forever.
You will look forward to those times of intimacy with THE CHRIST, as some of the most precious and illuminating moments of your life.

HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE
The Bible is not just another book. It contains the Word of the Living God.
Therefore it should not be read like an ordinary book.
God’s Word is INEXHAUSTIBLE.
God’s Wisdom is INFINITE Wisdom.
His Word is extremely nuanced. It never ceases to amaze me how we can read and meditate a passage until we THINK we know if forward and backward, and then – all of a sudden – boom! The Spirit SHOWS US something we’d NEVER SEEN before.
There’s something VERY SPECIAL and precious about receiving special revelation from God.
I’d rather receive ONE word quickened by His Spirit than A MILLION words from humans.
One DIRECT word from the Holy Spirit is worth infinitely more than ALL THE doctrine mortals invented then claim that “God said”.
His Word is not simply to be read, but to be STUDIED, meditated, and SCRUTINIZED. (John 5:39; 7:52)
His Word makes us wiser in every conceivable way.
His Word ENRICHES OUR SOUL. (Psalm 119:129)
All the treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge are contained in His Word. (Colossians 2:3)
All Scripture is profitable. (2 Timothy 3:16)
God’s Word is our shield of protection. (Psalm 18:30)
He is also OUR WEAPON against all the wiles of the devil: THE SWORD of the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:17)
God’s Word is ALIVE (Hebrews 4:12)
That is why we can read it a million times and He will say something different to us each time.
Don’t just read the Bible: “Listen” to WHAT GOD SAYS, INSIDE YOURSELF, as you study and meditate on it!
Don’t read it ASSUMING you already know what His Word says. Read it as if you were doing it FOR THE FIRST TIME.
As you study it, listen to the Holy Spirit and LET HIM tell you about what you’re reading.
We can experience Jesus by focusing on Him (on the INNER Christ, in the center of our being), and seeking His Face.
And we can experience Jesus by experiencing His Living Word:
By ALLOWING Him to speak to us through His written Word.

NEW WORLD ORDER
"New world order" is one of the catchphrases that prophecy gurus love to throw around.
Numerous books have been written and "prophecy conferences" devoted to something THAT THE BIBLE DOESN'T EVEN MENTION.
That's right: There's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the Bible about a "new world order":
Yet this FALSE TEACHING is presented, over and over, as "BIBLICAL".
The common theme in conspiracy theories is that a powerful, secretive and elite group, like the Illuminati, Bilderbergers or Freemasons is conspiring to establish a "new world order" through which they intend to rule the world.
This world government, supposedly, will give rise to the Antichrist, who is some UNKNOWN, mysterious character, living incognito somewhere in Europe, whom they will appoint as its leader.
Some have even gone out on a limb and posited that this "conspiracy" is not human but extraterrestrial.
What amazes me is not that these opportunists cash in on the unbiblical eschatological furor they've FABRICATED, but that SO MANY "Christians" fall for this rubbish.
THE REASON Christians fall for it is that THEY DON'T KNOW the Scriptures.
They don't know the Bible either because they're too lazy to study it, or they simply don't care.
Lord knows we got Bibles everywhere!
And Lord knows the Bible's been the same since it was written. It hasn't changed, nor will it change.
God's Word is CRYSTAL CLEAR that what'll give rise to the 3½-year world domination of the Antichrist, is not some "conspiracy", nor some elite group working behind the scenes.
Three things will allow the Antichrist to rule:
1. The absence of Christians who've gone in the Rapture (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 7:9).
2. The devastation of the world we know today, thru God's judgments: war, famine, disease, chaos, the sudden degradation of world powers like China, Russia and the U.S., and the global collapse of financial systems (Revelation chapters 8 and 9).
3. God WILL ALLOW SATAN TO INCARNATE IN THIS MAN AND DECEIVE those who have consistently rejected Jesus and have hardened their hearts. The Bible calls it "STRONG DELUSION"(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
That's HOW the Antichrist will rise to power, ACCORDING TO GOD.
There may be secret societies which aspire to world domination, but they WON’T achieve it.
It's God who's in control of this thing.
It's God who's pulling the strings, not some secret society.
And God HAS ALREADY TOLD US HOW He'll bring it to pass.
Besides, I wouldn’t consider anything that ONLY LASTS 42 MONTHS “a new world” anything. (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 13:5)
The only “new world order” of which I’m aware IS THE MILLENNIUM when JESUS will rule the earth and replace this decaying and corrupt world order with His righteous Kingdom.
Too bad so many "Christians" are willing to PAY sinful, DECEPTIVE HUMANS to tickle their ears with their lies, when God has told them FREE OF CHARGE what He will do.
Too bad so many "Christians" CAN RECITE THEIR FAVORITE PROPHECY GURU'S CONJECTURE VERBATIM, yet are oblivious to GOD'S TRUTH.

DID HELL FREEZE OVER ?
Growing up in Illinois, we had a joke that was both funny and sad:
There are all these people in hell groaning and complaining about the extreme heat when, all of a sudden, everything starts shaking, a strong wind starts blowing and, next thing you know, this huge blizzard covers the realm of the damned with snow.
Finally, one guy walks over to Satan and asks: “WHAT THE HELL is going on?”
To which Satan replies: “the Cubs just won the World Series”.
Well, after MORE THAN A CENTURY (108 YEARS, to be exact), the beloved Cubbies (finally!) WON the World Series!
Just goes to show that Jesus is infinitely GREATER THAN any “curse”, whether real or imagined. Glory to His Name!
That was on Wednesday, November 2, 2016.
A week later, on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, another underdog, Donald J. Trump defeated media worshiped and alleged shoo-in Hillary Clinton, winning the U.S. presidency.
In Trump’s case, it wasn’t a matter of overcoming a “curse”, but rather taking on the godless mainstream media, who pounded him relentlessly 24/7 and for two solid years, the Democratic Party, establishment Republicans, skewed “polls” that showed him, again and again TRAILING, and Hillary herself.
Has hell, indeed, frozen over?
This seems to be THE YEAR when the seemingly “impossible” TAKES PLACE.
So, to those (myself included) who have been waiting… and waiting… and waiting… for Jesus to TAKE US HOME ALIVE…
Hang in there. Don’t lose hope.
Jesus WILL KEEP HIS WORD and rapture us unto Himself. (John 14:1-3)
Keeping in mind that God’s calendar runs NOT from January to December, but FROM SPRING TO SPRING…
Just like in the seemingly unlikely outcomes described above, He may even do it THIS year (by next spring).

GOD HAD IT RIGHT
While all the polls, pundits and mainstream media were dead wrong about Trump losing the election, and Hillary becoming the first woman President, GOD HAD PREDICTED ALL ALONG WHO WOULD BE THE WINNER.
Many people have asked me if I believe in the Bible Code and, as I have often shared in these messages, the answer is yes.
Not only do I believe in Truth revealed at equidistant intervals, there are OTHER DIMENSIONS of Wisdom in God’s inspired Word in which we will be delighting, and pondering, for eternity.
His Word is INEXHAUSTIBLE.
Everything about everyone is written somewhere in His Word. (Psalm 139:16).
All the unsaved will be JUDGED BY God’s Word. (Revelation 20:11-15)
And God PREDICTED, LONG AGO, who would be elected President of the U.S. on November 9, 2016.
While I totally believe in dimensions of revelation IN THE BIBLE that go way beyond the conventionally readable text, I have also stated that one must be VERY CAREFUL not to jump to conclusions, as this is something – at least for gentile Christians – that has ONLY RECENTLY come to light.
I freely admit that I’m not an expert on the Bible Code.
I know my limitations and SO SHOULD YOU.
However, there are those WHO HAVE STUDIED the Bible Code for years and who ARE experts.
One such individual is Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, who has studied Torah and Bible Codes for many years.
There was one Rabbi telling everyone, supposedly based on the Code, that Hillary would be elected because he had found the words “Hillary” and “President”.
When I heard that, I immediately discarded it because those are JUST TWO words.
And there are thousands of “Hillarys”.
Had he found “Hillary Clinton” and “President” that’s still only THREE words, but at least it’s more descriptive.
Rabbi Glazerson, on the other hand, found this code, very close together, in the Book of Deuteronomy:
“Donald Trump”, “President”, “U.S.A”,
“will be elected” and EVEN THE EXACT DATE (November 9, 2016).
He found another Code with ALMOST THE IDENTICAL message in the Book of Numbers.
You can view both video presentations here:
Now THAT is a VERY DESCRIPTIVE and AMAZINGLY ACCURATE Code.
…TOO DESCRIPTIVE, in fact, to be mere “coincidence”.
The fact he found it TWICE, in the Torah, made it all but CERTAIN.
And, sure enough, it was.
I’m mindful that the General Election took place on November 8, NOT November 9, which is THE DAY AFTER.
When I saw that I immediately realized that we wouldn’t have a formally declared President-elect until the next day, probably in the wee hours of the following morning.
Sure enough, it was almost 3 A.M. on November 9th, when Wisconsin was called and Trump was finally declared the winner.
Oh, THE AMAZING ACCURACY of God’s Word!
3,500 years ago, BEFORE the American Continent was known, BEFORE the United States of America EXISTED, BEFORE there was a billionaire named Donald Trump, before he decided to run for President, God KNEW what would happen, and ENCODED it in His Holy Word.
This stunningly accurate prediction was NOT FOUND IN the Vedas, the Upanishads, Tiipitaka, Tao te Ching, I Ching, Zhuangzi, the Koran, the Book of Mormon, the Pearl of Great Price, Doctrines and Covenants, or ANY OTHER “sacred” text.
…Because NONE OF THE OTHER texts are inspired by God.
Because the “gods” mentioned in them ARE FALSE “gods”.
Because THEIR “gods” DO NOT EXIST!
It is found ONLY IN THE BIBLE.
For those who want “PROOF” that there’s a God…
That God is Yahweh, THE GOD OF THE BIBLE: JESUS.
That God is ALL KNOWING.
Who want “PROOF” of His INFINITE Greatness.
And PROOF that His Wisdom is INFINITELY GREATER than all human wisdom combined.
Here's that PROOF.
I’m no mathematician, but the odds of those VERY SPECIFIC MESSAGES being found TWICE in God’s Word, written 3,500 years ago, at close equidistant intervals, and which turned out to be SO EXQUISITELY ACCURATE, are astronomical.
Here’s PROOF of God’s Existence, and Greatness – WAY BEYOND any “reasonable” doubt.
The Old Hymn says it better than I ever could:
“My God, HOW GREAT YOU ARE!”
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2016
WINNERS & LOSERS
Here are the biggest winners and losers in the recent U.S. elections:
1. Jesus Christ, the Word of God. (I’ll explain in another message)
But then, He ALWAYS wins.
2. The United States and its citizens
IF Jesus tarries, we may finally have a government “OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people”, instead of “OF, BY and FOR” SPECIAL INTERESTS.
3. Donald Trump – who ONLY spent less than $5 per vote, mostly from his own fortune, and won!
Contrast that to Hillary’s $1.3 BILLION:
$556 million from Hillary Clinton campaign
$544.4 million from Democratic Party and fundraising
$188 million from Super PACs
All those millions couldn’t get her into the Oval Office. What complete waste!
Think of all the HUNGRY PEOPLE WHO COULD HAVE BEEN FED by the “loving”, “caring” Hollywood birdbrains WITH ALL THOSE MILLIONS THEY GAVE TO THE WICKED WITCH.
Trump went against Hillary, the DNC, the self-righteous Republican establishment, the mainstream media who pounded him SAVAGELY and NON-STOP,
And STILL came out on top.
4. The entire “basket of deplorables” and “irredeemables” that voted for him, myself included.
What would that heartless witch know about redemption, anyway?
5. The U.S. Constitution
Despite fake polls that showed Hillary 12 points ahead of Trump, despite a rigged political system, despite SOME voter fraud, despite the mendacious media trying to discourage us from voting, since Hillary was “going to win”, despite all the Hollywood “celebrities” and “entertainers” who held fund-raisers for Hillary, TRUMP OVERCAME ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Just goes to show that our Founding Fathers KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING, and that our Constitution is STRONGER than ALL OF THEIR CORRUPTION.
6. Evangelicals & Roman Catholics
Evangelicals voted in record numbers (81%) and practically handed Trump the victory. Thank you, brothers and sisters!
And even the majority of Catholics (57%) voted for Trump. Thank you, Catholic brothers and sisters!
Man, if we could set RELIGION ASIDE, JOIN SPIRITUALLY, rally around Jesus, put Jesus FIRST, and give Him ALL of our hearts, we would be UNSTOPPABLE.
7. The State of Israel and Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu
The President-elect and Prime Minister have known each other for years, have a warm personal relationship and Israel won’t be constantly pressured to make unilateral concessions or criticized for “settlements” on ITS OWN LAND during a Trump Administration.
8. Kellyanne Conway, THE FIRST FEMALE Campaign Manager to win a U.S. presidential election.
She took on the biased media head-on. Great job, Kellyanne ! Congrats!
9. Veterans – who WILL BE APPRECIATED AND WELL TREATED under the Trump Administration and given the care, medical options and SPECIAL ATTENTION that they SO RICHLY DESERVE.
10. The U.S. economy
God willing, if President Trump gets his way, everyone who WANTS TO WORK in America will be able to get a job.
Our jobs won’t be shipped overseas, and this senseless system where Americans have to hold two or three part time jobs just to pay the rent and put food on the table WILL COME TO AN END.
11. RNC Chairman, Reince Priebus and the wayward Republican Party, which will now, hopefully, close ranks and serve its constituents.
Let’s hope Reince does as good as job as Trump’s Chief of Staff.
12. The public at large – we won’t have to put up with Hillary’s cackle, fake laughter when something’s not funny, her lies, her incompetence, and her boring demeanor.
I couldn’t even stand the sound of her voice, or when her fear-filled commercials came on, and quickly changed the TV channel.
1. The Wicked Witch of Wall Street
All the Wall Street CEO’s who contributed to her campaign so they can continue opening up factories overseas at the expense of the American worker, basically THREW THEIR MONEY AWAY.
2. George Soros who spent millions in super PACS to defeat Trump and LOST.
3. John Podesta, Hillary’s Satanist campaign manager, as revealed in his emails hacked by Wiki Leaks.
Hey, when you serve THE LOSER, YOU LOSE.
4. Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama
He said that Trump “would never become President”.
But then again, he also called the evil SOB’s known as ISIS “jayvees”.
Both pronouncements have come back to bite his behind.
He said he’d take it AS A “PERSONAL INSULT” if Hillary wasn’t elected to carry on HIS “legacy”.
Consider yourself INSULTED, Barry.
And, while we’re at it, kiss your stupid “legacy” good-bye,
5. Jeb! and The Bush Dynasty
What a bunch of sore losers!
They had a reputation for being gracious. They lived up to that reputation with Bubba, whom they now refer to as their “fourth son” even though he robbed George H.W. (41) OF HIS SECOND TERM IN OFFICE.
They could have been equally gracious with Trump. Instead, they chose to sulk, attack the Republican nominee CHOSEN BY registered Republicans, AND BETRAY THEIR OWN PARTY, even going so far as to declare they were voting for Hillary.
Actually, Trump DID THEM A FAVOR.
Low-energy Jeb HAD NO MESSAGE, couldn’t have turned ONE blue state red, and would have lost to Hillary in a LANDSLIDE.
But we all know, of course, that because his last name happens to be “Bush”, the Republican nomination and Presidency were Jeb’s “birthright”.
Get over yourselves!
I loathe traitors and I’ll never vote for another Bush. EVER!
6. The Clinton Dynasty
It’s now DEAD.
America never recovered from Clinton Fatigue.
And Chelsea doesn’t have a chance in hell.
7. CNN & the Mainstream Media
After telling us for TWO SOLID YEARS that Hillary was going to win and that Trump had “NO CHANCE”, THEY ALL WOUND UP WITH EGG ON THEIR FACES.
By the way, George Stephanopoulos, you promised to leave the U.S. if Trump was elected.
I hope you have your one-way ticket to … wherever.
8. The Polls & Pundits
The polls, which are manipulated by the mainstream media, along with pundits like Bill Kristol (what’s that fossil doing on TV?), George Will, Charles Krauthammer ALL OF WHOM disavowed Trump, and now HAVE TO EAT CROW.
And Cokie Roberts who had the temerity to say (without ANY proof) that Hillary had lost “because she’s a woman”.
Shut up, Coke-head!
I’d vote FOR A WOMAN PRESIDENT in a heartbeat, just not THAT woman.
9. Hollywood AND ALL THE AIRHEAD “ENTERTAINERS” THAT MADE TOTAL FOOLS OF THEMSELVES for Hillary:
Beyonce, Jay Z, weeping Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Ga-Ga, Madonna, Cher, Streisand, Springsteen, booty-shaking Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt and others.
American voters just PROVED how insignificant these “celebrities” are, how CLUELESS they are, what LITTLE INFLUENCE they have, and that WE FLAT-OUT DON’T CARE about their opinions.
Give it up, ridiculous losers!
Just be grateful that you’re GROSSLY OVERPAID for the talentless, substandard “entertainment” you provide.
Dishonorable mention: that dumb, back-stabbing slut named Alicia Machado.
She became a quasi-celebrity in the Hispanic world THANKS TO TRUMP who owned the Miss Universe Pageant.
Instead of showing appreciation, she became a stupid crybaby (“he called me Miss Piggy!”) and disposable Hillary propaganda prop.
Hey, if you put on 50 POUNDS right after you’re crowned Miss Universe, you can’t blame the guy for calling you that.
Hope you enjoyed your 15 minutes, Alicia. Cause you’re about to vanish into inconsequential oblivion.
10. ISIS and Islamic Terrorists
You’re all going to hell, where you belong, evil bastards!
Who hastily published and distributed thousands of magazines with Hillary’s face on the cover and the caption “Madam President”.
All those mags had to be recalled, and replaced with new issues showing Trump’s picture on the cover as “President Trump”.
Their miscalculation (or was it wishful thinking?) turned out to be A HUGE EMBARRASSMENT.
12. All those who voted for Hillary
You KNOW that she’s A PROVEN LIAR, a PROVEN law-breaker, a PROVEN hypocrite, and that she’s enriched herself by selling access to the State Department in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation – among OTHER things – and you STILL voted for her!!!
13. Megyn Kelly
With Donald Trump only 6 ELECTORAL VOTES AWAY FROM VICTORY, and several states still to be called in which he was leading, the so-called “future” of Fox News was STILL bending over backwards to “somehow” hand the election over to Hillary.
If she’s their “future”, Fox News doesn’t have much of a future.
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2016
Just as silly Christians are beginning to recover from the “blood moons” fiasco, the shyster who invented them is now pushing “super moons”.
A “super moon” is a moon that reaches ITS CLOSEST POINT TO EARTH during its elliptical orbit.
Therefore, it looks LARGER than usual from the earth, hence its name.
There will be 3 consecutive “super moons” in 2016:
We had one in October, we have one this coming Monday (November 14) (THE ONE CLOSEST to earth in 69 years) and one on December 14, 2016.
And THIS, according to the shyster, has prophetic significance:
“The Largest Super moon since 1948 will appear on the 14th of November 2016 the biggest since Israel became a nation. This is one of three in a row in October, November, and December 2016.
A week before Jupiter enters into the belly of the Virgin and remains for the next 9 months when Jupiter is caught up and out on the 23rd of November 2017 on Rosh Hashana (Feast of Trumpets)
Won’t happen again until November 2034.”
He also pointed out that President-elect Trump was born on June 14, 1946 and that, therefore, on Inauguration Day January 20, 2017 when he takes the oath of office, his age will be “70 years, 7 months and 7 days”.
THAT is supposed to have "prophetic significance" as well.
The Gregorian calendar was invented by THE ROMANS, who are perhaps justifiably HATED AND LABELED “PAGAN” by Jews.
Is this Messianic JEW suggesting that THE ROMAN CALENDAR has prophetic significance?
Because if it does, then it would HAVE TO BE Holy Spirit inspired…
Don’t you just love it when PROPHECY traffickers INVENT UNBIBLICAL LIES, contradict themselves, and MAKE TOTAL FOOLS OF THEMSELVES in the process?
And if you can find me ONE VERSE, in the ENTIRE Bible, THAT SAYS WE’RE TO BE LOOKING FOR “SUPER MOONS” in connection to eschatology ---- I’ll EAT my Bible.
If you find me ONE VERSE that says that the Gregorian calendar, invented by the Romans, under Pope Gregory XIII in the 16th century, has prophetic significance, I’ll eat my Bible WITHOUT SALT.
And if you find something in Scripture that says THAT THE AGE OF A U.S. PRESIDENT ON THE DAY HE TAKES THE OATH OF OFFICE HAS PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE, I’ll eat TWO BIBLES!!!
In light of these UTTERLY RIDICULOUS THEORIES, I’d like to make some “predictions” of my own:
1. NOTHING SIGNIFICANT WITH REGARDS TO ESCHATOLOGY will happen in connection to ANY of the aforementioned “super moons”.
Just like NOTHING SIGNIFICANT WITH REGARDS TO ESCHATOLOGY happened in connection to the much ballyhooed, so-called “blood moons”.
2. NOTHING SIGNIFICANT WITH REGARDS TO ESCHATOLOGY will happen because of tonight’s (November 14-15, 2016) super moon.
And the Rapture WILL NOT take place on Rosh HaShanah, 2017 – I don’t care HOW MUCH, OR for HOW LONG, Jupiter is “in the belly of the virgin” on that day.
(Actually, the CORRECT BIBLICAL name for that Feast is Yom Teruah, NOT “Rosh Hashanah”, Leviticus 23:23-24).
So, what we have a Jewish “teacher” WHO HAS SOLD dumb Christians lie after lie…
And dumb Christians KEEP FALLING FOR IT.
We have a Messianic Jew WHO DOESN’T EVEN KNOW THE CORRECT, BIBLICAL NAME OF THEIR OWN Hebrew FEAST, and he’s formulating theories about eschatology.
The shyster in question also asserted, FALSELY, that “the greatest weapon we have against Satan is the Torah”.
NO. THE GREATEST WEAPONS we have against Satan are the Name of Jesus and the Blood of Jesus. (Mark 16:17-18; Philippians 2:10-11; Revelation 12:11)
The Second Coming takes place on Sukkot. (Deuteronomy 31:10; Daniel 8:24)
Since the tribulation lasts 3½ years the Rapture must occur 3½ years earlier in the month of Aviv (Nisan) just prior to Passover. (Daniel 12:7)
ALL ELSE is SPECULATION.
And the Truth IS ALWAYS FREE.
WHEN will you learn that, silly Christians?
“Prophecy” SELLERS are greedy religious leeches, who DON’T KNOW ANYTHING about REAL Bible prophecy.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2016
The doctrine of predestination is totally biblical.
Ephesians 1:3-5 is very clear:
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ:
For He CHOSE US in Him, BEFORE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He PREDESTINED US to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will".
So is Romans 8:29-30:
“For those God FOREKNEW, He also PREDESTINED to be conformed to the Image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.
And those He PREDESTINED He also called, those He called He also JUSTIFIED, those He justified He also GLORIFIED”…
However, there are those who take this doctrine to the extreme and say THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS FREE WILL.
Therefore, we have NO CHOICE and NO SAY with regards to our salvation.
They're the ones who usually criticize our ministry for inviting people to receive Christ and offering several versions of the sinner's prayer.
They teach that, UNLESS God chose and predestined us for Salvation we are all hopelessly and irretrievably lost.
Hyper-Calvinism is not only a dangerous doctrine, BUT A FALSE DOCTRINE.
Hyper-Calvinists talk about the Bible, quote the Bible (selectively, of course), but they DO NOT preach the Gospel.
Let me say that again: THEY DO NOT preach the Gospel.
The very word "Gospel" means "GOOD News".
WHERE, exactly, is the "GOOD News" in telling someone that UNLESS God ALREADY chose you before He created the World, YOU'LL BE LOST, AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT?
Consequently, Hyper-Calvinists don't invite anyone to receive Jesus, because they believe YOU HAVE NO CHOICE AT ALL on the matter.
Fortunately, that's NOT what the Bible teaches.
Free will is evident throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.
Free will is A GIFT from God that He Himself will NEVER violate.
He honored Adam's (both male and female) free will when they CHOSE to disobey Him, even when He knew THE PRICE that He Himself would have to pay in order to redeem them.
There are at least FOUR fundamental flaws with this FALSE DOCTRINE:
1) Even if it were true, WE DON’T KNOW whom God chose and predestined and whom He DIDN’T. Only GOD knows.
Therefore, we MUST preach His Gospel and give others the opportunity to receive Christ.
2) God NEVER predestined ANYONE to be lost.
That’s worth repeating: GOD NEVER predestined ANYONE to be lost.
Jesus Himself taught that the lake of fire was NEVER intended for man, but "for the devil and his angels" (Matthew 25:41).
The Scriptures also make it clear that "it's NOT His Will that ANY should perish, but that ALL (predestined or not) SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE (2 Peter 3:9).
Therefore, hyper-Calvinists CONTRADICT Jesus.
And JESUS IS THE Truth, (John 14:6)
3) Jesus COMMANDED US to “go into ALL the world and preach the Gospel”. (Mark 16:15)
He added that “HE WHO BELIEVES and is baptized (by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ) WILL BE SAVED” (Mark 16:16, 1 Corinthians 12:13)
4) If Salvation is based SOLELY on God's choice, and humans have NO SAY at all on their eternal destiny, it makes it ENTIRELY God's "fault" if ANYONE is lost (perish the VERY THOUGHT!).
Predestination DOES NOT MEAN that we don't get to choose our eternal destiny.
All it means is that God, being OMNISCIENT (all knowing) and since He is in the realm of eternity, and not confined to the realm of "time" as we mortals are, knows “IN ADVANCE” (in the ETERNAL PRESENT) who will choose Him and who will reject Him IN TEMPORARY space-time.
THAT is all it means.
He KNOWS the end FROM the beginning (Isaiah 46:10).
He KNEW, even before creating the world, who would receive Him and who wouldn't.
In that FOREKNOWLEDGE, He chose us (whom He KNEW would place our trust in Him) and predestined us IN HIMSELF to be His sons and heirs.
There is, therefore, no contradiction WHATSOEVER between predestination and free will: NONE!
"For God so loved THE WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believes on Him SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE" (John 3:16).
Sounds like free will to me.
Otherwise, He should have said "that whosoever He predestined to believe on Him"... but, mercifully, IT DOESN'T SAY THAT.
John 1:12: "to ALL who RECEIVED Him, to them gave He power to BECOME sons of God".
One must exercise his free will on this earth in order to receive Christ and be eternally saved. It's OUR DECISION.
The Bible even ends with an invitation to "WHOEVER WISHES, let him TAKE THE WATER OF LIFE FREELY". (Revelation 22:17)
The invitation is open to ALL. The fact God already KNEW who'd accept the invitation and who wouldn't, DOES NOT in any way, shape or form PREVENT US from exercising the free will He gave us, and which He STEADFASTLY HONORS.
It’s true that – in His marvelous Grace – God "will have mercy on whom He will have mercy":

Did you know that you already existed even before you were born?
O.K., O.K. Settle down. I’ll give you the scriptural proof in a minute.
I’m not talking about reincarnation. It’s not that you were once a frog, and then came back as an antelope, then a cougar, and eventually as a human. The Bible teaches no such thing.
I’m talking about INCARNATION (WITHOUT THE “RE” IN FRONT).
God the Son, the Christ, INCARNATED IN HUMAN FORM: we know His Incarnation as Jesus Christ. (John 1:1-2, 14)
Likewise, you already existed in God in eternity past, and manifested in flesh when your physical parents procreated you.
The main differences between Jesus and us being:
A) That Jesus was virgin born. (Luke 2:26-35)
B) That He is SINLESS. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
C) That He is Almighty God (John 1:1)
The Bible tell us in Ephesians 1:4 that we were both chosen and predestinated in Christ Jesus to be holy and without blame before God, even prior to the foundation of the world.
Now, consider THAT for a moment: What enormous privilege!
BEFORE you had a chance TO DO ANYTHING, God had already known you, chosen you in Himself, and predestined you to be His son (or daughter) and heir.
That PROVES that salvation is by God’s sheer GRACE (UNDESERVED Goodness from God, without any works on our part). (Romans 3:28)
2 Timothy 1:9 says that God “has (already) saved us, and called us with a holy calling, NOT ACCORDING TO OUR WORKS (thank God!), BUT ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE, WHICH WAS GIVEN US (ALREADY) IN CHRIST JESUS BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN”...
That’s pre-existence, no matter how you look at it.
But the best news of all, according to Matthew 25:34, is that God has also prepared a Kingdom, His Kingdom, before the foundation of the world, JUST FOR YOU.
And, do you know what’s so great about being IN God’s Kingdom?
We get to FOREVER ENJOY the King.

RESURRECTION FOR ALL
EVERYONE reading this message will either rise from the dead or never die (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).
Again: EVERY PERSON reading this message, and every individual WHO HAS EVER LIVED, will either RISE FROM THE DEAD, or NOT die (1 Corinthians 15:50-55).
ALL who HAVE died, and ALL who WILL yet die, will be resurrected from the dead, WHETHER THEY ARE SAVED or UNSAVED (Revelation 20:4, 11-15).
It's sort of comical for atheists, agnostics, skeptics and unbelievers TO QUESTION the Resurrection of Jesus, because whether they believe or not, whether they like it or not, ALL OF THEM will be resurrected.
If THEY will rise from the dead, WHY ON EARTH COULDN'T JESUS rise from the dead?
Think of all the dumb books (and they ARE REALLY, REALLY DUMB) written by Christ haters trying to "explain" the Resurrection as "mass hallucination", which DOES NOT EXIST in the annals of psychiatry.
Or that Jesus "didn't really die", but rather survived the horrendous beating, lashing, Crucifixion and spear through his side, and was "revived" by the coolness and dampness of the tomb.
Even if THAT lunacy could be proven, they still couldn't explain HOW HE, in His extremely feeble physical condition, CAME OUT OF THE TOMB and how it was empty three days and nights after His Crucifixion.
WHO REMOVED the extremely large and heavy stone so that the moribund Jesus could get out ALIVE?
HOW COULD HE "ESCAPE" IN His near-death condition, when there were 16 Roman soldiers posted outside the tomb, armed to the teeth?
WHO PROVIDED the miraculous medical attention He would have needed in order to "survive"?
Those books NOT WORTH THE PAPER on which they're printed and which, THREE YEARS LATER, NO ONE REMEMBERS...
But THEIR AUTHORS WILL BE REMEMBERED, and will be RESURRECTED THEMSELVES.
They will also be judged ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS (Revelation 20:13).
Perhaps then they will realize their folly and ungodly bias:
"Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: SOME TO EVERLASTING LIFE, OTHERS TO SHAME AND EVERLASTING CONTEMPT" (Daniel 12:2).
"...FOR THE HOUR IS COMING, IN WHICH ALL THAT ARE IN THE GRAVES SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE, AND SHALL COME FORTH; THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE; AND THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF CONDEMNATION" (John 5:28-29).
Every human being - from Adam to those living at the end of the Millennium - will either NOT die AT ALL, or RISE FROM THE DEAD.
The ONLY DIFFERENCES will be:
1) THE ORDER (time) at which they will rise.
2) THEIR ULTIMATE destination.

CHURCH AT EPHESUS – PART 2
During his final journey to Jerusalem, the Apostle Paul met with the elders of the church (group of believers) in Ephesus.
Paul warned them:
"I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number MEN WILL ARISE AND DISTORT THE TRUTH in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard!” (Acts 20:29-31)
A few decades later, Jesus commends the church of Ephesus FOR HAVING HEEDED THE WARNING:
“You HAVE TESTED THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE APOSTLES BUT ARE NOT, AND HAVE FOUND THEM FALSE.” (Revelation 2:2)
He also tells them that unless they repent and return to loving God as they first did, their lamp (menorah) – representing their church – would be removed (Revelation 2:1-5):
They did not return to their first love, and their lamp (light, witness for Christ) was, indeed, removed, just as Jesus had said.
Today Turkey, once the center of Paul's ministry outreach, and home to the 7 churches in Revelation, is 99% Muslim and devoid of Bible-based Christianity.
Might the same thing happen in America and Europe?
Europe is already a spiritual wasteland with fewer Bible-believing Christians than many other countries where the Gospel has only recently been preached.
America, meanwhile, has mixed materialism and self-help psychology with the Bible to concoct a deviant form of Christianity that sees God not as the loving, Almighty God worthy of our highest praise but as a genie who grants us prosperity and health on demand, provided we “rub Him” the right way by donating to His ALLEGED “ministers”.
Savage wolves indeed have ransacked the flock and spoken perverse things to draw away the disciples.
If the Church at Ephesus that DID MANAGE TO WEED OUT FALSE APOSTLES, but did not return to its first Love (Jesus) was removed from Turkey leaving only spiritual darkness behind.
What do you think will happen to a Church THAT CAN'T DO EITHER ?

CHURCH AT EPHESUS
In the first century there were no “Christian tours” or “Christian cruises”.
But there are many in the 21st century.
Tourism is BIG business!
It’s PARTICULARLY BIG for greedy “Christians” trying to get rich at the EXPENSE – and I do mean AT THE EXPENSE OF – Jesus and the Gospel.
There are “Christian” tours to Ephesus that show Bible illiterate Christian tourists some ruins then tell them “THIS is what happened to the church at Ephesus” for not returning to its first love. (Revelation 2:5)
One tiny problem: There were NO BUILDINGS called “churches” in the first century A.D. when Revelation was written.
Such buildings DID NOT EXIST until 300 YEARS LATER.
Therefore, those ancient ruins ARE NOT “what’s left of the church at Ephesus”.
Ephesus is located in modern Turkey.
The church at Ephesus which Paul addresses in his epistle to the Ephesians WAS NOT A BUILDING.
It was NOT a building, MUCH LESS A RELIGION.
The church at Ephesus was A COMMUNITY (A GROUP) of believers (both Jew and gentile) who had received the Jewish Messiah into their hearts as only God and Savior. (Ephesians 1:1)
There was a Jewish SYNAGOGUE in Ephesus, which Paul visited (Acts 18:19).
But a synagogue is not a church.
Synagogues were invented by Jews during Babylonian captivity as TEACHING CENTERS, where Jews would congregate to study the Scriptures (Old Testament) and thereby PRESERVE their Jewish beliefs and customs.
The synagogue at Ephesus existed since the 4th or 5th century B.C., LONG BEFORE there was a single believer in Jesus on this earth.
However, the synagogue was destroyed.
The ruins shown to tourists today are what’s left of the library, what’s left of the theater, public restrooms, the agora or marketplace, and the temple of Artemis (also known to us in the New Testament as “Diana of the Ephesians”). (Acts 19:28, 34-35)
They have NOTHING TO DO with the first century Church (GROUP OF BELIEVERS) at Ephesus, other than being in the same city.
I’m all in favor of “returning to OUR FIRST Love”, who is none other than Jesus, but we don’t need to lie about some ancient ruins in order to do that.

THE NEXT VICE PRESIDENT
On the eve of the General Election, I just thought I’d give you one more thing to mull over:
THE FIRST MAJOR DECISION that a presidential nominee gets to make is his or her running mate.
When we vote, we’re not just voting for ONE person, but for A TEAM.
The other person on the ticket is extremely important because, should anything happen to the President, that prevents him from carrying out his duties, then the Vice President would step in and become de facto President.
To offer some useful perspective, we’re about to elect our 45th President.
So far, 14 former Vice Presidents have become President.
8 of them took office DUE TO THE DEATH of the sitting President, and one (Gerald Ford) due to the resignation of the sitting President.
Donald Trump chose as running mate conservative, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, with an exemplary record on cutting taxes and producing jobs, and a born-again Christian.
Pence describes himself as “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, IN THAT ORDER".
Hillary, on the other hand, picked loose cannon Junior Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, an advocate of that ultra-leftist, Marxist branch of Roman Catholicism known as Liberation Theology.
This “theology” basically postulates that ALL OF THIS WORLD’S EVILS stem from the United States.
It’s the same stupid theology embraced by “God d@mn America” nutcase Jeremiah Wright.
And, doubtlessly, the same basic beliefs held by the present occupant of the Oval Office, who attended Wright’s church FOR OVER 20 YEARS, and then played dumb and PRETENDED (in order to be elected) that he didn’t know what his own pastor believes.
Obama also “broke ties” with Jeremiah Wright when he realized his “pastor” was a potential hindrance to him being elected.
Nowhere was the contrast between the two world views more evident than at the recent Vice Presidential debate.
Mike Pence did a magnificent job, was poised, articulate, presidential, and right on the issues.
Tim Kaine, as many of us saw, acted like an out-of control freak, a madman, randomly regurgitating lines that had been fed to him all over the place.
Pence wiped the floor with him.
Since both Trump and Hillary are pushing 70, and since it’s evident from her recent collapse at the 9/11 Memorial that Hillary is in poor health, the vice presidential running mate seems particularly important in THIS year’s election.
If anything (God forbid) happened to Trump, we’d get BORN-AGAIN Mike Pence.
If anything (God forbid) happened to Hillary, we’d get NUT JOB Tim Kaine.

RAPTURE & 70 WEEKS
Since the Rapture hasn’t happened… yet...
Some Bible illiterates ASSUME – WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT IT – that the 70 weeks DO NOT lead to Christ’s Second Coming but that they lead to the Rapture, instead.
They have NO BIBLICAL PROOF.
They offer NO VALID ARGUMENTS.
And yet they push their false doctrine capriciously, and WITH UTTER DISREGARD FOR the Word of God.
They want to shove their dumb theory down my throat, and want me to accept it JUST BECAUSE “THEY” came up with it.
I DO NOT BASE ANY TEACHINGS on people’s OPINIONS.
“BECAUSE I SAY SO” has never been a convincing argument and NEVER WILL BE.
I’ve said it before, and repeat it now for the benefit of new readers, and for those who need to hear (or read) something 100 times BEFORE they “get it”:
I have ZERO RESPECT for those who DISRESPECT God’s Word.
Here’s WHAT GOD SAYS:
(Speaking to Daniel through Gabriel)
“SEVENTY WEEKS are DETERMINED UPON YOUR PEOPLE and UPON YOUR HOLY CITY, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY, and to anoint the Holy of Holies.” (Daniel 7:24)
GOD clearly says the 70 weeks are determined for “YOUR (in context, Daniel’s) PEOPLE.
Was Daniel ever part of the Church?
No. There was NO CHURCH in the 6th century B.C. (Matthew 16:18)
Daniel’s people were, and are, THE JEWS!
Therefore, the 70 weeks are determined UPON JEWS, NOT gentiles.
And the Church is comprised MOSTLY of GENTILES (Romans 11:25-26)
They are not determined "upon the Church" and, therefore, CANNOT END WITH the Rapture.
Of course, there will be SOME Jews who will turn to Jesus in the very final moments of the Church Age, and they will be raptured (Joel 2:32)
Of course, many WHO TRULY ARE Messianic Jews are already saved and, therefore, PART OF the Church.
But Jews represent A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE of the Body of Christ.
The Church is PREDOMINANTLY gentile. (Revelation 7:9)
The 70 weeks are determined upon Daniel’s people, the Jews, and UPON “YOUR HOLY CITY”.
What was – and is – Daniel’s “HOLY CITY”?
New York? Las Vegas? L.A.? Paris? Rome? Geneva? Chicago? London? Pretoria? Sydney? Cairo?
No. It’s Jerusalem.
Jerusalem already existed in the 6th century B.C. It's where Daniel lived before he was taken captive. It had become Israel’s capital around 1,000 B.C. and still exists today.
The 70 weeks INVOLVE JERUSALEM, as clearly stated in this verse and in the three verses that follow:
“Know therefore and understand that FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMANDMENT TO RESTORE AND TO BUILD JERUSALEM to the Messiah, the Prince, shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: THE STREET SHALL BE BUILT AGAIN, AND THE CHANNEL (ha arutz), even in troublesome times.
26And after threescore and two weeks SHALL MESSIAH BE CUT OFF (WHERE was Messiah “cut off” or killed? IN JERUSALEM), but not for Himself:
And THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE THAT SHALL COME (Titus and the Roman army in 70 A.D.) SHALL DESTROY THE CITY and the temple (WHERE was the temple? IN JERUSALEM); and its end shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
27And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK HE SHALL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OFFERING TO CEASE, (WHERE were sacrifices and offerings offered? At the temple IN JERUSALEM)
AND FOR THE OVERSPREADING OF ABOMINATIONS HE SHALL MAKE IT (Jerusalem) DESOLATE, EVEN TO CONSUMMATION (COMPLETE DESTRUCTION), (that’s exactly what the Romans did in 70 A.D. not leaving one stone upon another, Matthew 24:2; Mark 13:2) and that which is determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:25-26-27)
The ENTIRE 70 WEEKS PROPHECY has to do with the building, destruction, and REBUILDING OF JERUSALEM.
HOW, then could the “7 weeks” AND “62 weeks” point to the Rapture of the Church, WHEN LESS THAN 1% of Jerusalem’s population is Christian?
Jerusalem’s Ethnicity (as of 2016):
Total population: 865,721
• Jewish 64%
• Arab 35%
• Christian and others 1%
If the 70 weeks pointed to the Rapture of the Church, AND FEWER THAN 8,700 of Jerusalem’s residents are Christian, then THE NEWS FOR CHRISTIANS WOULD BE GRIM, indeed, since that would mean THAT HARDLY ANY Christians would be raptured.
HOW then could the Church appear IN HEAVEN, BEFORE GOD’S THRONE as “A GREAT MULTITUDE, with garments made white BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, and that NO ONE could number”? (Revelation 7:9, 14)
That would also mean, THAT ANY CHRISTIANS NOT LIVING IN BIBLICAL JERUSALEM WOULD BE “LEFT BEHIND”.
One final point: Daniel 9:24 (quoted above) clearly says the 70 weeks are determined “TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY”.
Prophecy, therefore, will remain “sealed”, at least in part, UNTIL THE END OF THE 70TH WEEK.
When the 70th week ENDS -- ALL prophecy will have been UNSEALED.
The word for “seal” is chatham, the very same word used in Daniel 12:4 and Daniel 12:9 where God tells Daniel that prophecy will be “sealed” UNTIL “the time of the end”.
Prophecy is UNSEALED in the Book of Revelation, by Jesus Himself (Revelation 6:1).
The Rapture of the Church takes place when Jesus OPENS the 6th seal (Revelation 6:12; 7:9).
The Tribulation, reign of Antichrist, and Second Coming occur AFTER THAT, when Jesus lifts the 7th (and FINAL) SEAL. (Revelation 8:1)
If SOME PROPHECY must remain “sealed” UNTIL the end of the 70th week, and the 70 weeks point to the Rapture, HOW THEN, could there STILL REMAIN ONE SEAL TO BE OPENED AFTER the Rapture has taken place?
I rest my case.
There’s NO WAY in heaven, hell or earth that this prophecy pertains to the Rapture.
It pertains to Christ’s Second Coming.
The Rapture is FOR THE CHURCH (mostly for GENTILE believers).
The Second Coming, 3½ years later, is FOR THE JEWS: (Daniel 12:7)
And, subsequently, for ALL of natural Israel…
NO AMOUNT of SPECULATION, CARNAL DESIRE, EGOTISTICAL SELF-EXALTATION, or WISHFUL THINKING, can change THE TRUTH.
THAT, by the way, is HOW one makes a BIBLICAL case for one’s teaching:
“Let GOD be TRUE, and EVERY MAN A LIAR”.
I got JESUS and the Bible, WHAT have YOU got?

THE ZODIAC – PART TWO
The first thing that Satan corrupted in the Zodiac is the order of the signs: he would have us believe they start with Aries and end with Pisces.
Actually, they BEGIN WITH Virgo, THE VIRGIN, and END IN LEO.
Let's see how that matches up with the unfolding of God's plan of redemption:
Virgo - right after man sinned, God promised that the Seed OF THE WOMAN would crush the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:15).
Women, however, have no "seed". This is a clear reference to the supernatural VIRGIN BIRTH of Christ, as specifically foretold in Isaiah 7:14.
Virgo is the first sign because it was the birth of Jesus, Immanuel, God with us, that set God's plan of redemption in motion.
Libra - is a set of unbalanced scales. Because of sin, man "fell short" of God's glory. He'd been weighed in the balances and "found wanting". He just didn't "measure up" (Romans 3:23).
Scorpio - represents death. Man's sin brought the sting of death upon mankind (1 Corinthians 15:55-57; Romans 5:12).
It also represents Satan's reign of death until Life Himself showed up (Romans 5:14; Luke 10:19).
Sagittarius - The Archer (Psalm 45:5-6) is aiming His arrow right at the Scorpion (Satan).
He is a Centaur. A mythological character, with a DUAL NATURE, half-man and half-horse. He represents Christ's dual nature: 100% man and 100% God.
Jesus is the Solution to the sin/death problem. Only the God-Man could reconcile man to God... in Himself (2 Corinthians 5:19).
Only the God-Man (Jesus) could inflict a mortal wound on the enemy by crushing his head (Genesis 3:15).
Capricorn - Depicts Jesus as THE GOAT, offered to Yahweh as SIN OFFERING, who died in our place, and paid the penalty for our sins (Leviticus 16:7-16).
Aquarius - refers to the Holy Spirit, whose LIVING WATER will flow from our bellies and into the world, after we receive Christ (John 7:37-39).
It also represents God's Word being POURED OUT (preached, SPREAD) THROUGHOUT THE WORLD (Ephesians 5:26).
REVELATION 22:17 gives this universal invitation: "He who is THIRSTY, COME. AND WHOSOEVER WILL, LET HIM TAKE THE WATER OF LIFE FREELY"
Pisces - THE FISH, IS CLEARLY A SYMBOL OF THE CHURCH. The fish has been used as a symbol of Christianity since the first century A.D.
When we preach the Gospel, we become "FISHERS OF MEN" (Mark 1:15-17). There are still many "fish" that need to be brought into His Kingdom.
Aries - The Ram/Lamb, represents the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world (John 1:29; Revelation 5:6).
It's also symbol of the everlasting covenant God made with Abraham (Genesis 22:13). It's thru this covenant that we are redeemed.
This is the covenant that Jesus confirmed with His Precious Blood (Daniel 9:27; Galatians 3:16-17), when He died in our stead.
In honor of that covenant, the ram's horn (Trump of God) is blown when Christ's Church is raptured (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16).
Taurus - A CHARGING BULL: Satan is cast out of heaven and comes down to earth with great wrath, KNOWING THAT HIS TIME IS "SHORT" (Revelation 12:12).
Gemini - The Church will become a mirror image of Jesus, the Bridegroom, His spiritual clone (Romans 8:29; 2 Corinthians 3:18).
THE TWINS REPRESENT THE RAPTURED CHURCH, SITTING WITH JESUS CHRIST ON HIS THRONE, AS PROMISED IN HIS WORD (Revelation 3:21).
Cancer - the crab represents the Antichrist, who appears only AFTER the Church is raptured.
Like him, the crab emerges from the seashore (Revelation 13:1).
Antichrist's rule over the entire world is represented by THE BROAD SHELL. His entire body is UNDER that shell, except for the legs and claws.
Antichrist is supported by 10 NATIONS, represented by the crab's 10 LEGS (Daniel 2:41-42).
The Antichrist, Alexander the Great, was born under this sign on July 20-21, 356 B.C.
Leo - Jesus is called the Lion of Judah (Revelation 5:5).
The Lion is the King of the jungle.
Leo represents His Second Coming, and His Eternal Kingdom.
Jesus is THE REAL "Lion King".
It's very significant that, in the Zodiac planisphere, THE LION (Jesus) is shown CONFRONTING THE CRAB (Antichrist and his kingdom) HEAD-ON.
Jesus came the first time as a Lamb, to die for our sins. He comes the second time as a Lion, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16).
Of His Kingdom there shall be no end (Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:30-33). Amen.
Not only do these signs MATCH TO PERFECTION the major events in God's plan of Redemption, they also perfectly match their chronology.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2016
“THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF God: and the firmament shows his handiwork” (Psalms 19:1)
I’m not pushing horoscopes or astrology: far from it.
However, the constellations corresponding to the signs of the Zodiac were placed in the heavens by God.
God arranged them in a certain way, for a reason.
In the very first chapter of the Bible, Genesis 1:14-19 God says He placed the sun, moon and stars (constellations) in the heavens FOR “SIGNS” AND FOR “SEASONS”.
In the oldest book of the Bible, God says: “can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth Mazzaroth (the constellations or Zodiac) in his season? (Job 38:31-32).
According to Josephus, the meaning of these signs was passed on to future generations by Seth and by Enoch, Adam’s grandson, who was such a spiritual man that he walked with God and never died, but was personally translated to heaven ALIVE (Genesis 5:24).
In Antiquities of the Jews, Flavius Josephus, the famed and very reliable Jewish historian, tells us that Seth, the righteous son of Adam, set up two pillars, one of brick and one of stone, inscribed with “that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned WITH THE HEAVENLY BODIES, AND THEIR ORDER”.
Evidently, he deemed their message sufficiently important to pass it on to future generations.
Granted, thru the centuries their meaning has been distorted, corrupted, and used for divination, which the Bible explicitly forbids (Deuteronomy 18:10, Isaiah 47:13).
Some charlatan on TV, the internet, or the daily newspaper, tells people that because such planet is going thru their sign, this or that is going to happen.
That their sign will determine the kind of person they are, their personality, their success or failure, with whom they are compatible, and how great or awful their “love life” will be.
God never intended that His heavenly signs be used for such corrupt, carnal pursuits.
God said the stars (constellations) were “signs”.
Signs of what?
His plan of redemption!
Hence, the wise men that came from Babylon to honor the Christ Child were guided to Jerusalem, and then to Bethlehem, by Jesus’ star.
They saw it in the heavens, recognized it as “His Star”, and KNEW that the Messiah, the King of the Jews, had been born (Matthew 2:2).
Jesus Himself was appropriately born under the sign of Virgo, since His was born of a VIRGIN (Isaiah 7:14; John 1:14).
Come back tomorrow and we will look at the true meaning of the signs themselves.
You’ll be astounded at HOW PERFECTLY they match the Bible.

THE PERFECT CANDIDATE – FINAL PART
"...seven times shall pass over you, until you acknowledge that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever he will' (Daniel 4:32)
I’ve been following politics since age 14. Never have I seen a candidate so prejudicially and viciously attacked by both liberals and the mainstream media as Mr. Donald J. Trump.
They are SCARED TO DEATH THAT HE WILL SHAKE THINGS UP IN WASHINGTON and govern the way that a President should govern:
Doing what really is best for the country and its citizens, as opposed to fawning to special interests WHO PURCHASE their political decisions and votes.
I’ve heard ignoramuses compare Mr. Trump to Adolf Hitler again and again…Really?
Hitler killed over 6 MILLION Jews… JUST FOR BEING Jews.
Mr. Trump hasn’t killed anyone.
And to my knowledge, he’s not planning on killing anyone except those bastards who pose a real threat to our nation, to freedom and to human rights, namely ISIS and other terrorist groups, which he has promised to “bomb the hell out of”.
I find it revolting when some holier-than-thou, Pharisaic “Christian” says him or her "cannot vote for" Trump because he’s twice divorced, or because of some crude comment he made in private 11 years ago.
Truth is WE HAVE ALL SINNED, we ALL need God’s Grace, and we’ve all said things we wish we hadn’t.
As Jesus told the accusers of the woman CAUGHT IN THE VERY ACT OF ADULTERY: “let him who is WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU… CAST THE FIRST STONE”. (John 8:7)
I know preachers who’ve cheated on their wives and been married three or four times who are regularly invited to preach at Christian “conferences” and “crusades”, AND WHO GET TO PEDDLE THEIR WORTHLESS BOOKS ON “Christian” TV all the time.
If they’re going to apply THAT STUPID STANDARD to Mr. Trump, they need to apply it TO EVERYONE.
At least Mr. Trump has owned up to his mistakes, and not denied them or covered them up, as his disingenuous opponent has tried to do repeatedly. (Psalm 32:5)
And as MANY PREACHERS HAVE DONE, AND ARE STILL DOING.
Please, brothers and sisters, let’s grow up.
Let’s STOP PRETENDING.
Let’s STOP DECEIVING ourselves and each other.
There is NO PERFECT candidate.
King David WASN’T perfect.
King Solomon WASN’T perfect.
Yet they were CHOSEN BY God to rule Israel.
Cyrus of Persia WASN’T perfect.
Yet GOD called him “His anointed” (moshiach). (Isaiah 45:1)
George Washington WASN’T perfect.
Abe Lincoln WASN’T perfect.
John Kennedy WASN’T perfect.
Ronald Reagan WASN’T perfect.
Neither is the clown sitting in the Oval Office right now.
And neither is Donald Trump.
But at least he has the right ideas and PROVEN leadership ability, which is more than can be said about his opponent who, with her long history of scandal, controversy, shady deals, lies, cover-ups, intimidation, incompetence and UTTER DISREGARD FOR THE LAW, SHOULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN the nomination or even been allowed to run.
If she were elected (God forbid), SHE WOULD HAVE A CLOUD OF SUSPICION OVER HER HEAD FROM DAY ONE.
She would be UNDER INVESTIGATION during her entire term.
She’d be unable to carry out the all-important Office of President, and make sound decisions for our country, since SHE WOULD HAVE TO CONSTANTLY DEFEND HERSELF, AND CONFER WITH DEFENSE ATTORNEYS.
For years I’ve heard Christians CLAIM that they WANT A CANDIDATE who is PRO-LIFE and who will appoint CONSERVATIVE justices to the Supreme Court.
Mr. Trump is / will do BOTH.
His opponent is / will do NEITHER.
She is PRO-ABORTION, and ULTRA-LIBERAL.
She’s also A PROVEN liar.
She’s been in politics for 30 years and can point TO NO SIGNIFICANT achievement in ALL THAT TIME.
She was a DISMAL FAILURE as Secretary of State:
And she is TOTALLY BEHOLDEN to special interests.
THE CHOICE is clear.
It’s time TO VOTE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THOSE CLAIMS.
It’s time for Christians to PUT UP or SHUT UP.

THE PERFECT CANDIDATE – PART 2
On January 8, 1996, AFTER REVIEWING HER RECORD, the late New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner William Safire, who voted for Bill Clinton in 1992, referred to Hillary Clinton as a “CONGENITAL LIAR”:
In other words: “A “BORN liar”.
BEFORE she DELETED 33,000 E-MAILS, AFTER getting a subpoena from Congress…
BEFORE the infamous PRIVATE SERVER where America’s top secrets, pertaining to our national security, were readily available to China, Russia, Isis, AND OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS to hack at will.
Apparently, it was also available to her top aide Huma Abedin, of Saudi ancestry, and with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
(For those who may have forgotten, all 19 hijackers responsible for 9/11 were Saudis. So was Osama Bin Laden.)
And we’ve just learned that our nation’s “top secrets” were even available to Huma’s sicko, degenerate, soon-to-be ex-husband, Anthony Weiner.
Safire called Hillary “congenital liar”:
BEFORE SHE LIED to Congress UNDER OATH…
BEFORE Bill infamously met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Arizona, and then privately for 45 minutes aboard her plane, to ensure that Hillary would not be charged for violating national security, and that (in exchange) Lynch’s job as Attorney General would be secure under a Hillary Administration…
But, of course, everyone knows that the purpose of that EXTREMELY ODD and INAPPROPRIATE MEETING was just to “discuss their grandchildren”.
And if you buy THAT, you might be interested in a lovely bridge in Brooklyn that I’m selling.
BEFORE it became evident that Bill and Hillary were PIMPING America’s favors, and compromising American interests FOR MONEY, to foreign governments like Russia, and Saudi Arabia… via the Clinton Foundation…
BEFORE Wiki Leaks revealed that two-faced Mrs. Clinton says one thing in public, and another in private…
BEFORE it was revealed that long-time Clinton crony Donna Brazile, while working as commentator for CNN, was CHEATING and leaking debate questions IN ADVANCE to the Hillary camp – which is illegal, and they/Hillary ACCEPTED THEM.
The latest revelation is that the Clinton campaign was coordinating strategy with super PACS, which is also illegal.
BEFORE the FBI decided to reopen its investigation in light of 650,000 State Department emails found in Weiner’s laptop…
And the “hits” just keep on coming…
I can’t help wonder what Mr. Safire would call Hillary if he were alive today.
But the words “corrupt” and “criminal” come to mind.
Then there’s Hillary’s agenda which is MORE OF THE SAME:
A THIRD TERM for Obama, for all intents and purposes.
1. A weakened military.
2. EMBOLDENED, ever proliferating TERRORISTS.
3. Emboldened Russia and China.
4. EMBOLDENED IRAN.
5. No respect for the U.S.
6. Open borders for illegal immigrants to continue swamping our nation AT WILL, and at the expense of you, the taxpayers.
7. Millions of POTENTIAL TERRORISTS posing as “Syrian refugees” (NOT vetted, and Lord knows who they really are and THEIR REAL INTENTION in entering the U.S.)
8. A stagnant economy.
9. Globalism: meaning THE WORLD FIRST, America last.
10. ULTRA-LIBERAL SUPREME COURT APPOINTEES, in the mold of that ugly, old witch Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
11. Unsympathetic to Israel.
(The biased, liberal media in the U.S. has conveniently swept under the rug that Obama USED TAXPAYER MONEY in the last Israeli election to fund the campaign of ultra-liberal Yitzhak “Bugi” Herzog, and defeat Bibi Netanyahu.)
Fortunately for Israel, Bibi won and Obama LOST.
12. Under Obama and Hillary, Christians are to be seen but NOT HEARD.
13. Gun control: I’m not an NRA member, and I’m not particularly fond of firearms, but if she gets her way, kiss the Second Amendment good-bye.
14. Her own ABYSMAL RECORD of SHEER INCOMPETENCE as Secretary of State.
If she was a DISASTROUS Secretary of State, what chance is there that she would be a good PRESIDENT?
15. Hillary is PRO-ABORTION.
In fact SHE SUPPORTS EVEN THE HEINOUS, LATE-TERM, PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION, where a fully developed and about to be born human baby is MURDERED AND (LITERALLY) TORN TO PIECES inside his own mother’s womb.
16. Last but not least, there’s the terrifying prospect of old Bill becoming First Spouse (remember, you “get two for the price of one”).
Just imagine him sitting in the East Wing with nothing to do but pursue young interns…
If you want to vote for Hillary, knock yourself out.
And get ready to hear cries of “allahu akbar” ON A REGULAR, and EVER INCREASING basis, RIGHT HERE ON AMERICAN SOIL.
Get ready to see and hear those cries – accompanied by HORRIFIC ACTS OF TERROR – not in Iraq, Paris, Munich or Brussels – but RIGHT HERE IN THE GOOD OLD U.S.A!
And if you think I’m exaggerating, I just need ONE WORD to make my case:
IN THE PAST YEAR, 1.2 million “refugees” were allowed in by the Merkel government. Since then, 402,741 crimes have been committed by “refugees”, crime has increased by a staggering 40% and there have been 340 KNOWN cases of attempted jihadist recruitment.
ON A DAILY BASIS, the purported refugees are engaging in acts of terror, mob rapes, including violating a 10-year old, theft, stabbings, other violent acts, and destroying public property.
Heaven help us.
There’s NO WAY IN HELL I’m voting for that corrupt, lying, heartless witch.

THE PERFECT CANDIDATE
WARNING: for the next few messages we will be discussing the coming elections from a BIBLICAL, Christian, and practical perspective. Those who are easily offended, and cannot stand when someone else offers a point of view different from their own SHOULD SKIP THESE MESSAGES. Read them at your own risk.
With the November 8 general election looming in the horizon, all Americans of voting age should be SERIOUSLY considering their choices.
We have two major political parties in the U.S. and, as far as the office of President is concerned, we are usually given two main choices: the Democratic nominee and the Republican nominee.
In the interest of transparency, I am neither Democrat nor Republican, but registered as having “NO PARTY AFFILIATION”.
I HAVE VOTED for Democrats in the past, several times. In recent elections, however, I have voted Republican for the simple reason that the Democratic Party has gone TOO FAR TO THE LEFT for my taste.
And in the previous general election (2012) FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY ADULT LIFE I abstained from voting because I COULD NOT support either President Obama or Mitt Romney without VIOLATING MY CONSCIENCE.
I have made my choice for the November 8, 2016 general election based on each candidate’s agenda, including their attitude toward Israel and toward Christians.
You don’t have to agree with anything that I say, and you retain the right to vote for the candidate OF YOUR CHOICE, WHOEVER “HE” OR “SHE” MAY BE.
My candidate of choice happens to be Mr. Trump.
Mr. Trump is far from perfect, but then again, so am I.
I’ve never been a fan of Mr. Trump, but now that he has entered the political arena, he has in my humble opinion, THE WINNING MESSAGE, the message that America (should Jesus tarry) and THE WORLD desperately needs.
When you take away the New York street talk, the bluster and the bravado, the over sized ego of a multi-billionaire used to getting his way, used to saying and doing pretty much what he wants…
We are left WITH IDEAS.
And IDEAS have CONSEQUENCES.
Mr. Trump’s ideas of:
1. Bringing jobs back from overseas.
2. Defeating Isis.
3. Strengthening our military.
4. Curbing ILLEGAL immigration.
5. Imposing a TEMPORARY BAN on Muslim immigration UNTIL we have a system in place where we KNOW, WITH GREAT CERTAINTY, who the immigrants REALLY are, and what their TRUE PURPOSE IS.
6. Appointing CONSERVATIVE justices to the Supreme Court, who will UPHOLD the Constitution instead of “interpreting it”.
7. Offering STRONG SUPPORT to Israel, our greatest ally in the Middle East, and the Chosen People of God.
8. Supporting evangelical Christians and the Christian faith.
9. Being anti-abortion and, therefore, PRO-LIFE.
10. Putting AMERICA FIRST, and making America great again.
REALLY DOES IT FOR ME.
Should Jesus tarry, (underscore THAT) Trump’s agenda would put our country, once again, ON THE RIGHT TRACK.
Mr. Trump is a PROVEN leader with a PROVEN track record of getting things done.
His opponent, on the other hand, has been in politics for 30 years, and has ZERO accomplishments.
Her tenure as Secretary of State was one of the worst, if not THE absolute worst disaster, in American foreign policy.
I also like that Mr. Trump is a straight shooter: Perhaps TOO straight.
But I’ll take someone who TELLS IT LIKE IT IS, however bluntly and politically incorrect, over a lying hypocrite ANY DAY.
And that goes for religion as well as politics.
Another thing in his favor, for which I feel Mr. Trump DOES NOT GET THE CREDIT HE DESERVES is that he has USED HIS OWN MONEY AND RESOURCES TO FINANCE HIS CAMPAIGN:
UNLIKE OTHER CANDIDATES WHO ARE BEHOLDEN TO SPECIAL INTERESTS that DONATED TO THEIR CAMPAIGNS – this makes President Trump FREE TO DO what REALLY IS BEST for our declining nation.
We will discuss Hillary, Lord willing, in the NEXT message.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2016
Religion has INVENTED the lie that UNCONFESSED sins remain unforgiven.
There isn’t ONE Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation that teaches such nonsense.
God's word teaches we should confess our sins to God, and to one another (Psalms 32:5; Daniel 9:20; James 5:16).
Such confession RELEASES OUR INDIVIDUAL CONSCIENCE from sin but it is NOT a “condition” for forgiveness.
1 John 1:9 says "if we confess (ADMIT) our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to CLEANSE US from ALL unrighteousness".
Does that verse say we have to confess EVERY SINGLE SIN?
Does it say we have to come before God with an ITEMIZED LIST of every sin we've ever committed?
Does it say that UNCONFESSED SINS are NOT forgiven?
Only LEGALISTS ON THE LUNATIC FRINGE believe that.
Yet, believe it or not, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT CERTAIN heretical sects teach.
Consequently, some Christians LIVE IN FEAR that they may have some "unconfessed sin" hidden somewhere, that's hindering their success, or their spiritual walk, or worse, that may keep them from heaven.
Such doctrine is A TOTAL PERVERSION OF 1 John 1:9 (quoted above).
1 John 1:9 SAYS NO SUCH THING.
Let’s look at THE CONTEXT:
“IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE NO SIN, we deceive ourselves, and THE TRUTH IS NOT IN US.
If we confess (admit) our sins, he is faithful and just TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (1 John 1:8-9).
This passage is clearly referring to individuals who CLAIM they have NO SIN.
The Greek word translated “confess” in verse 9 (omologōmen, a derivative of homologeo) means TO ADMIT or TO ACKNOWLEDGE.
John merely says that those who claim to “have no sin” are self-deceived liars, who CONTRADICT JESUS.
If, on the other hand, THEY ADMIT or ACKNOWLEDGE that they have sinned, repent and receive Christ into their hearts, Jesus is faithful and just to forgive them and cleanse them FROM ALL SIN, FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
Nowhere does it say that confession of EACH AND EVERY SIN is NECESSARY to obtain forgiveness.
John was talking about holier-than-thou LEGALISTIC “Christians” who SAID that they never sinned.
Who CLAIMED to ALWAYS “follow the law”.
In case you’re wondering who, in their right mind, would make such claim, there are MILLIONS today who claim to “keep” God’s Law and BOAST of “not being like those SINFUL evangelicals who TRUST Jesus completely and DON’T LIVE UNDER the law”.
I encounter them EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE.
Jesus Himself had at least ONE such encounter with the rich young ruler, who told God, to His Face, that he’d “kept ALL the commandments since childhood”.
Jesus, of course, KNEW that the young ruler WAS LYING (John 7:19)
Jesus (God) answered him (paraphrasing): “Baloney! NO ONE IS GOOD, EXCEPT GOD ALONE” (Mark 10:18).
Do you think THE THIEF who hung on the cross next to Jesus HAD TIME TO ITEMIZE EVERY SIN he'd ever committed?
Of course not!
Yet Jesus ASSURED HIM, he'd be with Him in Paradise (Luke 23:43).
Do you think if some born-again Christian dies, and "missed" confessing a certain sin, that sin won't be forgiven?
That's ridiculous and absurd!
That sin was forgiven BEFORE it was even committed.
That sin was forgiven THE MOMENT he/she gave his or her heart to Jesus.
I'm sure I've committed sins that I've completely forgotten about, or that I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE I WAS COMMITTING.
The same can be said for everyone else.
Therefore, if forgiveness and Salvation depended on us NAMING EVERY SINGLE SIN EVER COMMITTED – NO ONE – and I mean, NO ONE would be saved.
Jesus would have (perish the very thought) DIED IN VAIN.
That verse DOESN'T SAY we are to CONFESS EVERY SIN.
That verse DOESN'T SAY we need to come before God with an ITEMIZED LIST of every sin we've ever committed.
That verse DOESN'T SAY we need to confess every single sin we've committed AFTER RECEIVING Christ.
It just says that we need to ADMIT or ACKNOWLEDGE that we have sinned.
All God wants from us is to ACKNOWLEDGE we have sinned and RECEIVE HIS FORGIVENESS.
We should all humble ourselves before God regularly, acknowledge our TOTAL DEPENDENCE on Him, confess that by His Blood we're redeemed from ALL sins, and THANK HIM FOR IT.
Confessing sins is NOT done for His sake, but for our sake.
My sisters, my brothers… God DOESN'T WANT YOU TO LIVE IN FEAR (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 John 4:18).
Jesus doesn’t want us to live in guilt.
Jesus doesn’t want us to be sin conscious, but rather CONSCIOUS of His Righteousness IN US (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 10:2)
God wants you to have His Peace.
He wants you to REST IN HIM, and TRUST HIM -- COMPLETELY (Matthew 11:28; John 14:27).
He wants us SECURE in His Salvation. (Romans 8:1; 31-39; 1 John 3:14)
God KNOWS you've sinned. He knows HOW MUCH, HOW OFTEN, AND EVERY DETAIL INVOLVED.
Jesus loves you UNCONDITIONALLY.
He's already PAID FOR ALL your sins, for ALL ETERNITY.
He's already FORGIVEN YOU.
He's ERASED every sin from your record, and even from His memory (Hebrews 8:12).
He expects you to receive His forgiveness, and forget about them, too.
Only man-invented religion insists on “KEEPING SCORE” of sins, which God NO LONGER COUNTS against us (2 Corinthians 5:19).
Jesus has removed ALL sin for ALL time, as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12; Hebrews 9:26; 1 John 3:5).
If God is FOR US, WHO (or what) can be against us? (Romans 8:31)
WHO shall lay ANYTHING to the charge of God’s elect? (Romans 8:33)
God doesn't want you to be sin conscious.
He wants you to be Jesus conscious.
