DO YOU BELIEVE GOD?

March 9, 2016

Or, do you only believe “in” God?

Do you believe that there is only one true God, and that God has a son that allowed himself to be sacrificed as payment for your sins, and anyone that calls on his name will be saved?

Fine, even Satan believes that! However, Satan does not believe God. He does not believe that God is infallible. Satan believes that he can take control of this universe and be the one in control. He believes that he can make this universe his and be its God: to make this universe anything that he thinks it should be.

We look at this and say to ourselves, “What a fool Satan is”.

Well, instead of looking at someone else, perhaps we should look inward and ask ourselves if we are doing the same thing.

At this time, in this country (United States), I see the same attitude that Satan has, but it is among my brothers.

Be patent and let me explain.

(Dan 4:17 NIV) “‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.’

God says the same thing in Romans.

(Rom 13:1 NIV) Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

You see, my brothers believe that they are in charge, and they choose the authorities. They believe that they can make this country great, but they have lost their confidence in God and replaced it with a false confidence in themselves. They are placing their trust in man and do not even realize that is what they are doing!

This universe does not belong to man or Satan. It belongs to God and God chooses the authorities; man does not.

If I were to vote I would be proving, by my actions, that I did not believe Daniel 4:17 or Romans 13:1.

My brothers do not understand, even though they have ears to hear and eyes to see!

The one who believes in this country, and teaches others to do so, is building on the foundation of Jesus Christ using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay and straw, not on the Spirit. The Spirit says God is in control, not man.

(1 Cor 3:18&19 NIV) Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”;

The wisdom of this world says we must choose a leader that will do God’s will and they do not understand that the rulers of this world are doing God’s will!

Don’t you see that the man that is president now was chosen by God, because he would turn the United States against Israel?

(Rev 16:14 NIV) They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.
(Rev 20:7&8 NIV) When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog–to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

Theses are prophecies that are being fulfilled now. All of the nations of this world are allied with Iran against Israel. Israel, because they still do not believe God will protect them, will attack Iran and the final battle will begin.

Daniel was told “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.” This is the time of the end and the words are no longer sealed! We can all understand if we listen to God instead of man.


THE ABOMINATION THAT CAUSES DESOLATION

December 17, 2015

(Mark 13:14 NIV) “When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong–let the reader understand–then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
(Mat 24:15&16 NIV) “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel–let the reader understand–then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
(Dan 12:9 NIV) He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.

This is the time of the end and so the words are no longer closed up and sealed.

The statue that king Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream was/is explained in the second chapter of the book of Daniel.

I must plagiarize some of Daniel’s writing because it parallels my understanding. ‘No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to you this mystery, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown me what will happen in days to come. As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than other living men, but so that you may know the interpretation and that you may understand.’

The key to understanding this abomination is the statue that king Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream. This statue represents all of the governments of the earth. You see, all of the governments of the earth are abominations to God.

In the Kingdom of God, when everything is as it should be, there will be only one government, only one King, and only one God.

All of the governments of the earth attempt to take the place of God. They make laws to force the people do what they want. All of the prophecies that God told Israel that a king would do to them are true of any government of men that has ever been on this earth.

Governments are really only agents of wrath (Rom 13:4). However, the people view governments as an authority that will make life better for them! How can an agent of wrath take the place of God and make things better? Governments or authorities were established by God to punish those who do wrong, not to solve all of our problems and make life perfect.

Abominations that cause desolation are like antichrists in that there are many of them. As Scripture says anyone who denies Jesus is an antichrist (John 2:18-22). Just as there are many antichrists there are many governments that bear the title of ‘the abomination that causes desolation’. Actually they all bear the same title and they have all caused desolation.

However, there is one supreme antichrist and that is Satan, and there is one supreme government that causes desolation and that is Islam.

“O” yes, Islam is a government as well as a religion. It was created by Satan and the sole purpose of Islam is to destroy the true God’s kingdom on this earth. The kingdom of God is in us (Luke 17:20&21) and Islam is commanded, by their god of death and destruction, to destroy us, thereby destroying the kingdom of God.

The abomination that causes desolation is the statue in the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar, spoken of in Daniel (Dan 2:31-35). It represents all of the governments, kingdoms, democracies or any form of authority that exists on this earth and they will be completely destroyed: swept away without leaving a trace (Dan 2:35).

Soon all of the governments of this earth will attack and defeat Israel and as one they will stand on the Holy Mountain, but just as it is said, the statue will be destroyed by a rock, not cut out by human hands, and that rock will become a mountain and fill the whole earth.

(Mark 13:14 NIV) “When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong–let the reader understand–then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

The words are no longer sealed and we can understand.

I have no plans to visit Judea, so I have a pretty good head start toward the mountains.

Having said that, I know that God did not destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, until all of those who worshiped Him were safely away. I view this as an example of the end, so I do not think I will be on this earth to view God’s wrath.


SIGNS OF THE TIMES

August 13, 2015

I have not written anything for a while. It is not that God has stopped revealing more of His Word to me, but just that I have not felt compelled to write.

The truth is I am still a child in my heart. Children enjoy anything that is fun and I viewed sharing what God has revealed to me as fun. If it is not fun, then it is work and no child enjoys work. So, you can see that I am a lazy child, because this is work. However, it is too important to keep to myself, so I will work, but only a little.

All through the Bible God has said that He will gather all of the nations in the world against Israel and then He will send Jesus to save His children. Surly, everyone that studies the Bible can see that this is the time.

The world has yet to muster its troops, but it has united against Israel. This nuclear agreement between the United Nations and Iran is proof that the world has united with the rest of the enemies of Israel.

I find it especially ironic that Germany was singled out in the negotiations of the agreement. It is the plus one, of the five plus one.

From Germany came Hitler and from Hitler came the “Final Solution”. Germany has maintained some of the concentration camps as a memorial, so that it should not happen again, but the truth is it is a reminder only that Germany chose the wrong method! Not that they think it was wrong to attempt to kill all of God’s children!

The latest method is to allow the sworn enemy of Israel to build nuclear bombs, which they have openly stated they will use against Israel, and then to supply all of the money to accomplish their evil task. Germany, or the whole world, for that matter, did not learn a thing from World War Two!

Can anyone say, in truth, that the world is not against Israel?

Israel has always relied on other nations to save them in their times of trouble. That was a sin of unbelief and God stated it. (Ezek 29:16 NIV) Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.'”

Israel relied on the United States until we turned against them and joined forces with the world to assure their destruction.

God has put Israel in a position where there is no one, other than the Lord God, to turn to.

This has been all from the Bible and we were told this all along. Now I will give my idea of how these times will play out. Please remember that this is only my opinion and there is no guarantee that it is correct.
There really is not much that I can add as everything is pretty much already been predicted and almost complete.

However, it seems to me that God has put Israel in the position where they must attack Iran before they can amass a stockpile of nuclear weapons. To wait very long is to assure their own destruction.

When they do the world will gather at the Valley of Jehoshaphat. (Joel 3:2 NIV) I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

The world will be enraged, because Israel has spoiled their plans to have Iran be the nation to implement the “Final Solution”. The world has already aligned itself with Iran and will muster all of their troops against Israel for thwarting their plans. Then they will consider the next method for the “Final Solution” and they will all assemble their troops and begin to implement that attempt.

God will let the world capture half of Jerusalem (Zec 14:2-5 NIV) I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

Well, even if I am wrong about how these things will be fulfilled it cannot be denied that God has foretold that all of the nations of the world will align themselves against Israel: and they have. He also has said that at the time they muster their troops and advance He will come and save Israel. Then the whole world will know who is God.

Protect and keep your faith, because that time is very near.


THIS CHRISTIAN AND THE 4TH OF JULY

June 9, 2015

I say “this” Christian, because I am, and can, only speak for myself.

I was born a citizen of the United States. I was raised to believe this Country was a gift from God. That we were a free Country, not under a king, dictator, or any ruler, but ruled by all of the people. The home of the brave, where we chose those to guide and lead us and if we were not satisfied with them, we should vote them out of office and someone else in.

This all sounded pretty good to me. It was what I wanted to hear and to believe!

However, I began to explore the question of “Is there really a God”. I found the same answer as anyone, who will ponder “truthfully” that question. I say “truthfully”, because many think about it with the goal of attempting to prove there is no God.

When I finally reached the point where I had to admit to myself that there has to be a God, I knew that I was dead to God, because of all my sins. The proper thing to do with a dead body is to bury it. So, I allowed someone to bury me in the water of baptism. When I came up out of that water the Holy Spirit was a part of me and because the Spirit of God cannot die, I cannot die. That is to really die, as this body will perish, but I will not die.

I am a new being. I was a six, the same number as Satan, but God added one to me and I became a seven, the number of completeness. The one, that He added, is the Holy Spirit.

Now, all my brothers should already know this, but they do not seem to understand why God gave us His Spirit. The answer is to teach us all things (John 14:26), but my brothers do not ask the Spirit about all things. That is all things about God, not all things about this universe. Questions about this universe are not important, as this universe will pass away.

I said this so you might understand that I only listen to God now. I question everything that this world tells me, using Scripture as the ultimate reference of truth.

The world told me that this Country was a gift from God, but when I read Romans 13:1&2, I reached a different conclusion.

I was told, when I was a child, that if you want to understand as someone else understands then “put yourself in their shoes”. In other words try to see things as they do.

So, I read Romans 13:1&2 as if I lived in Pennsylvania and the year was 1775, and the verse clearly said, do not rebel against the king, because God had appointed him and if I rebelled against him I was actually rebelling against God Himself.

I know Scripture said the same thing to the Founding Fathers as it says to me, because they had the same Bible that I have.

Now, this year, I will not attend Church on the 28th of June and the 5th of July, because one of those days the Church, that I attend, will celebrate rebellion against God. And they do not even know that they are!

I understand, so I will not participate. I have tried to explain to my brothers, but iron cannot sharpen iron and so I cannot sharpen them. They will not ask God if this Country is a gift from Him and then read His Word for the answer, but they will ask each other the same question; and believe the answer of their fellow man!

At first I was angered by their refusal to understand, but now I am deeply hurt by it. My brothers are lukewarm, just as Revelation says the last Church will be. They believe what they want to believe and hire preachers to say what their itching ears want to hear (2 Tim 4:3), just as Scripture says. They are in great danger and do not, will not, see it.

I am to the point of tears, as I write this. I was taught not to cry for myself. It is a form of self pity and only reinforces the pity. But the sadness that I am feeling is not for myself, but for my brothers.

Please brothers, wake up, this Church is the Church of Laodicea. The last Church spoken of in Revelation; the last Church in time. It is lukewarm, neither hot nor cold. It has one foot in the world and one foot in Heaven and it doesn’t put forth the effort to understand.

If you think your attitude brings me to tears, what do you think it does to our Heavenly Father, that we celebrate rebellion against Him: and even in the very house that we claim is His!


WHY WE HAVE OBAMACARE

February 26, 2015

This is a first for me. I removed this post and I did so because I do not believe it will change a thing. It would only serve to discourage those who do not yet know and understand our Heavenly Father. I should not be thinking about the sin of others and I should not be causing others to do so either.

Please forgive me if I caused you to concentrate on sin.


WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO FLIGHT 370?

March 12, 2014

You might think that I am a one who believes in conspiracy theories.

Well, the events of 9/11/01 were caused by a conspiracy. Moreover, I might add, a Muslim conspiracy.

The two passengers that boarded Flight 370 were Iranians and Iran is a Muslim country and a refuge for Muslims.

If you draw a line from the last known position of Flight 370 to Beijing and measure it, to determine how far the plane was fueled to go, and then sweep that line to the west, it is apparent that the plane could reach Iran. I might add that any airplane must carry some reserve in case of a delay reaching its destination, so if one uses the reserve, the distance can be increased.

If a country has manufactured an atomic bomb, the next step is to build a means to deliver it to the target.

My first thought was the plane was stolen in order to remake it into a bomber. However, one doesn’t have to remake anything, if the whole airplane is the bomb.

Muslims have already demonstrated that they are willing to die for their beliefs, so the only thing that must be done to a 777 in order to make it the means to deliver a bomb is to load it.

If you think this a wild idea and therefore not worthy of consideration, then what about 9-11?


IT’S MY FAULT!

December 18, 2013

The sins of others are easier to see than one’s own, so let me explain some of mine.

When I first became a Christian I thought that God knew everything and that He was in control. Well, I told myself that He did, but I did not know as much as I thought I did.

I was and am right about God, but I did not know or understand myself very well. I had not spent much time thinking about what God says in His Word, so I did not know much about either one of us.

I, like most new Christians, began to think that God chose me to change the world and make it a better place. It seems that way, because if everyone was a Christian the world “would” be a better place. However, as I gained a bit more understanding I came to the realization that if God wanted something changed He would change it and He certainly did not need my help.

So, you ask, what is it, that is my fault? If you live in the United States and you are aware of what the government is doing to the citizens and have thought about it, you can see that we have a Muslim President and it is his plan to destroy this Country.

Now, you may disagree with me about the President’s faith, because he claims to be a Christian. However, he has made the statement that Islam is a beautiful religion! No Christian could say that. Islam is a religion that denies the Son of God: A religion of death that has no Savior. There is nothing beautiful about that and anyone that makes that claim doesn’t know the first thing about Christianity.

So, again, you ask, what is it that is my fault? Well, as I thought about what God said, I see that He says, “The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Rom 13:1), but I have always been told that the people chose the president (authority). So because I did not understand I voted! I put my trust in man (the candidate) and myself (to have the ability to choose the right candidate). God says that we should not trust men. (Psa 146:3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.) Now, I might have asked God to guide me, but the truth is that, if He did, I would have always voted for the winner, because that is the one God chose. That is if He had truly guided me, but I usually voted for the loser!

You see, if you believe what the world believes, then we have a Muslim President, because I did not vote and it is my fault! However, the truth is that we have a Muslim President, because the people wanted a man to guide them and wanted to choose that man themselves, therefore they deny the power of God to choose. I do not mean that they can stop God from choosing, but they show their lack of faith that God would choose the right man. Because of our lack of faith, we got what we deserved.

God calls us children and we act like children. Children that think we know more than our Father.


THERE IS TWO MUCH JONAH IN ME.

September 10, 2013

Jonah hated the people of Nineveh and he did not want them saved from God’s wrath (Jonah 3:9-4:2).

The people of Nineveh were violent and evil (3:8) and Jonah knew they deserved God’s wrath and he wanted them to have it.

Jonah thought too much about himself and not enough about others and I see that there is too much of the same attitude in me.

I have not written anything for some time now. I wrote when I felt God wanted me to say something and I have not had that feeling lately. I understand why and it is because I have been acting like Jonah. My love has been becoming cold, just as Matthew 24:12 says.

I watch the news and I become angry, because most of those that lead the world lie. I think of myself and others that belong to God and anger for those leaders burns in my heart.

The vine that gave shade to Jonah and the worm that destroyed the vine was a lesson to Jonah that he was too interested in himself and was not considering others that were perishing.

God has gotten through to me and I see my sin. Instead of becoming angry with them, I should realize they cannot tell their right hand from their left and in the end, their lies only hurt themselves and those who believe it is right to lie.

I have nothing invested in those people, but God does. Those people can do nothing to me, but what God lets them do, and they have no spiritual power over me, but what I let them have. That is not to say that they have no worldly power, but what is that compared to eternity?

I am going to try to have compassion on those that lie to me, because they are on the broad road to destruction and I do not want that to happen to anyone. I am going to pray for my enemy, and they are my enemy, because God has made me understand, through Jonah, why I should.

Perhaps I can stop thinking so much about myself and think more about others that were also made in God’s image, but refuse to become like Him in action and deeds. Then maybe my love will not grow so cold.

It also helps me when I realized that it is all part of God’s plan. He is allowing the leaders of this world, along with drying up the Euphrates River, to prepare the way for the kings of the east.


GOD ELECTED BARACK OBAMA.

November 16, 2012

“There is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1 in part)

We in the United States think that we elect presidents, but they are authorities and God says that He establishes them. So, who is right, God, or man?

All my brothers become angry with me when I say that I do not vote. It is as if I am doing something wrong! If they really believed in a free country then they would have to accept, with out prejudice, my right not to vote.

I have found, over the years, that my choice for president was not God’s choice. I have only stood in God’s way by voting for the candidate that did not win! Had I voted in the last election I would have done so again.

I have also found that many Christians do not believe God. They say that they believe “in” God and they believe that He has a Son that was sent to save them and that is as far as they go. They do not study and therefore they know nothing more about God.

If they did study, they would understand that God gave or let us have this president. The world got the president that they wanted and Christians got the president that they deserve, because they did not believe God.

Christians in this country do not believe Romans 13:1, because they do not want to. They chose to believe that Jesus came to save them and just like the last church in Revelation, they say “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing”, but they do not realize that they are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

One who is naked has no covering. Jesus is our covering for sin.

It is not enough to believe “in” God. Even Satan and all of his angels believe “in” God. However, they do not believe God.

In my opinion, with my understanding, I am going to believe God, so I believe Romans 13:1. I also believe that we are the Church of Laodicea. The last Church, lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, a group of people that do not love God enough to search for understanding. Well, we do search for the words of salvation, but once we hear them, we stop the search and tell everyone how rich we are and that we need nothing else: REALLY?

“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent”. (Rev 3:19).

Revelation 3:19 are not my words, but the Word of God. As for me, I am busy repenting of my own unbelief.


WHAT IS THIS “OCCUPY WALL STREET” MOVEMENT?

November 29, 2011

Those that read my post know that I write on spiritual subjects: usually on the understanding of Scripture. Sometimes what is happening in the world is made clearer by what is written in the Bible. This occupy movement is such an event, or events that seem to make Scripture more clear for me.

The more one learns about Scripture the more one can learn. That may seem an odd statement, so consider this.

We are told from birth that the United States is a “Christian Country”, but when you become old enough to study the Bible on your own, without any so called help from others, one can see plainly that this Country is not Christian. It was formed in rebellion to God (Romans 13:1&2) by those that did not want the king that God had appointed over this land. The people decided to appoint their own king (President). They would no longer trust God to appoint a king. Verse four says the governing authority are “God’s servant”, but we believe those that serve are “Our servants”. How foolish we are to give power to men, to make laws that control our lives, and then expect them to only consider us! Now, you must already understand this before you can see the next step of events of this country.

God is not going to protect a county, or people, that do not have faith in His ability to appoint a king. Think about it, can you say that you believe God appointed a spiritual king for you, but He isn’t qualified to appoint a human king? Don’t bother trying to say that you prayed to God to guide you to vote for the right man. If you vote you are declaring God can not choose without the help of man.

At some point those who are in charge, because the people placed them in charge, will realize they are about to be voted out of office. They have put in place a plan for such an event. The president can declare a national emergency and halt the elections. It may not be this election, but is a possibility.

Someone is paying the expenses of those that occupy. I am old enough to know that no one spends money without expecting a return on their money. Those that are occupying are not in agreement about just what they believe: except the rich are their enemies. I believe those who are supporting the occupiers know exactly what they expect to get for their money.

If I were in power and did not want to loose that power and I did not really care about the people, or cared for myself more than the people, I might devise a plan to hire thugs, to cause large riots just before an election, so that I could declare a national emergency. Actually because the news media can be trusted to over emphasize their reports, I wouldn’t even have to cause large riots.

The news media is already over emphasizing the importance of a bunch of nuts dumping in the parks. Yes, I said dumping and you know what I mean.

Hitler had his Brown Shirts: this government has its Occupiers: puppets on a string!

What I said about this country is true and accurate. My prophecy is speculation. However, it is based on the actions and desires of men.

I say this to Christians so that if and when it happens they will not loose any of their faith. It should strengthen ones faith. Joseph Lule pointed out in his last comment, that it is God that has control of those that oppose Him and even though it may seem as if the world is going to defeat God’s children He will reveal Himself and save us.

Think about it.
