• The Coming Peace Plan

    The Coming Peace Plan

    From Daniel’s description of this new world leader, his rise to prominence will occur very quickly. The power that he will gain to enable him to unite the Israeli and Arab leaders to sign a peace treaty for “One Week”, an Old Testament catch phrase for seven years (Genesis 29:27), will come from the worlds ability to accept just such a man as a peace maker in a very short period of time.
    What events could propel a man onto the world scene so quickly and enable him to make peace with two nations so diversely apposed to each other, in a way that no other man has ever been able to accomplish?
    When I opened my Amazon Kindle Saturnday morning, to the news that President Barack Obama had won the coveted Nobel peace prize, I read with great interest.
    The similarities between his rapid rise to fame and the world’s acceptance of him as a great “savior” and that World leader described in Daniel chapter 9 were incredible.

  • Without Natural Affection–Woman Murders Six Children

    Without Natural Affection–Woman Murders Six Children

    One of the stunning signs of Jesus imminent return is described by Paul in Romans, Chapter 1. Women “without natural affection” for her children. The Salt Lake Tribune reports on April 13, 2014, that a Utah woman had secretly given birth–then murdered–each of her previous seven children. The bodies of these infants were kept in separate cardboard boxes in her garage.

    For most women, from the moment she learns of her pregnancy, an inner conscience begins that she is carrying a human life within that she is guardian and protector over. In the last days, the Bible describes an eroding of this natural affection that originates from a personal denial of God. Once a human being loses their conscience of God, they open themselves to a lifestyle that is destructive to themselves, as well as those around them.

  • The Seven Feasts of Israel

    The Seven Feasts of Israel

    According to Exodus 12:3, the Lamb was examined on the 10th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan, or April 6th by our current calendar. From the tenth day to the fourteenth day, the Lamb would be inspected for flaws. If there was any defect in the Lamb, he would be disqualified as the Passover Lamb.

    According to the New Testament, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the foal of a donkey on the 10th of Nissan, which is April 6th, Palm Sunday, 32 A.D. This event was the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy that the Messiah would arrive in Jerusalem 173,880 days from the command of Artaxerxes to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. For further details concerning this important prophecy, see Prophecy 309, and Prophecies 304-312.

    According to the Book of Exodus:

    The Lamb must be examined for defects (Exodus 12:3).
    The Passover Lamb must be a Male (Exodus 12:5).
    He must be Spotless or perfect. Jesus is perfect, without sin (Exodus 12:5). “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15).
    He must be killed at “twilight” (Exodus 12:6). This was early evening, the time when Jesus was crucified. “And About the ninth hour (3 p.m.), Jesus cried out with a loud voice, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani!’ (Matthew 27:46).
    The whole assembly of the congregation shall kill it (Exodus 12:6). The Jews who were gathered before Pilate declared that Jesus’ blood would be upon them: “Let His Blood be upon us and our children…” (Matthew 27:25).
    The Blood shall be for a sign (Exodus 12:13). “…the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7) .
    Not one of His bones shall be broken (Exodus 12:43, 46) When they came to break the legs of the crucified, the soldiers found that Jesus had already died—negating the need to break His legs (John 19:33).
    Exodus 12:13 – When I see the Blood, I will Pass Over you.

    Romans 3:25 – …by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.

    Exodus 12:13 – The plague shall not be on you to destroy you.

    Romans 8:1 – There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.

    Exodus 12:14 – This day shall be to you a memorial.

    Luke 22:19 – …And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

    365 Prophecies: Prophecy 1

    Now imagine if you will, God who has no first cause and has existed forever. In His eternal and unlimited mind, He conceived the idea for a universe in which He could display to all creation His great power and glory, much as a great artist paints a magnificent canvas to display his creative powers.

    God formulated a plan to fashion a race of beings that were like Him. He would give His new creation the power of self determination, creativity, reason, and conscience. Along with the power of choice, knowing that this choice would enable man to fail, God planned a future salvation in advance.

    It is interesting that Jesus is spoken of as being “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” in the book of Revelation chapter 13, verse 8. In a distant eon of time, immeasurable by human comprehension, before God created the universe, before He formed man on the earth, the Son of God would be the instrument whereby God could offer redemption.

    In this first prophecy of the Bible, the amazing love of God is placed into action immediately after the sin of Adam. Not wanting any of us to be lost, the Lord announces that the fail-safe plan He had instituted beforehand would now go into effect.

    2014 and the Real Purpose of our Lives

    2014 and the Real Purpose of our Lives

    The reality of the new year reminds us that only those things that we do for Jesus, to declare Him to this world and bring Him glory, will last forever. For all things were made by Him and for Him, and it is for Him that all things consist.

    Every work, every physical thing that exists in this world, all the things we do or say, all the effort… it will all pass away someday. Only what is done for Jesus will last. This is the reality that the Bible declares about God.

    We might think that we can leave something behind in this world that will be remembered. If those things were done for self or for personal satisfaction, we will be wrong in our estimation. In eternity, only what was done for Jesus will be remembered and talked about forever.

    This universe exists for the express purpose of revealing the God who made these things. He has chosen His Son as the heir of all things. He will not give His glory to any other. The earth will be burned up and all things that are in it. There will be no remembrance of anything, except what is done for Jesus.

    When we realize this, it will drastically change our life. We will stop living for ourselves, and begin to live for the Lord. Every word, every deed, all things that we put forth effort into, will be for Him. And these things will live on forever, and ever.

    So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. (John 19:30)

    God always finishes what He begins (Phil. 1:6). God never speaks a word without ensuring that it comes to pass (Isa. 55:11). Christ is both the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end (Rev. 1:8, 17). Christ is as much at the end of His work as He is at its beginning.

    Jesus was given an enormous mandate. He was to live a sinless life, remaining absolutely obedient to His Father. Even the manner of His death was to fulfill numerous prophecies that had been foretold in Scripture (Matt. 26:24, 31, 54, 56; 27:9, 35; 46; John 19:28, 36-37). Yet, despite the extremely complex assignment Jesus received from His Father, He could shout triumphantly from the cross, It is finished!

    Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.” (John 4:34)

    Throughout Jesus ministry, we see a marked difference between His priorities and the concerns of His disciples. The disciples were often preoccupied with how to meet their physical needs (Matt. 14:15-17; John 4:8; Luke 18:28). Jesus repeatedly assured them that the Father knew their needs and would provide (Luke 11:11-13). Jesus stressed that their priority was to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; the necessities of daily life would be provided (Matt. 6:33). When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, His disciples had gone into a nearby town to get food. While His disciples were seeking earthly nourishment, Jesus was giving this woman living water that would satisfy her soul for eternity.

    For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends. (2 Corinthians 10:18)

    It is common for all of us to seek approval for our actions. As children, we longed for the affirmation of our parents. As we grew older, we also valued the opinions of our friends, colleagues, and employers. At times, the esteem of others can claim such importance that it becomes our way to measure our worth as a person. Paul said that he was not striving to obtain the approval of people. Some of his critics thought their criticisms could determine what he did. Yet these same people were praising themselves for their own opinions and behavior. They were seeking the approval of others, and they were receiving it.

    Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:5)

    Attitudes do not just happen; we choose them. Paul urged believers to have the same attitude that Jesus had. Jesus was the Son of God. His place was at the right hand of His Father, ruling the universe. No position could be more glorious or honorable than the right hand of the heavenly Father. Jesus relationship with the Father gave Him the right to this honor.

    The angel Gabriel told Mary that God was planning to do something humanly impossible. All human logic would agree that a virgin could not give birth to a child. It was impossible. Yet this is exactly what was to happen. When God speaks of doing the impossible, it is no longer absurd. When was the last time God did the impossible in your life? When was the last time God spoke to you about what He wanted to do and you were scared to death by its magnitude?

    God still does the impossible! Too often we acknowledge our belief that God can do whatever He wants, then we add a safety clause: But I just don’t think God will do that with me! We become practical atheists, believing that God can perform miracles but never expecting a miracle in our own lives.

    And Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.” (Luke 1:46-47)

    Praise is the spontaneous response of a grateful child of God in His presence. The person who knows God and experiences Him intimately sings to the Lord with deepest praise! Mary was overwhelmed by the Lord’s goodness to her. In response she sang one of the most beautiful and profound songs of praise found in Scripture. Trying to stop the praise of a thankful heart would be like trying to arrest the flow of a mighty waterfall! God created us to praise Him; praise will be our activity when we are gathered around His throne in heaven.

    “Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” (Luke 1:45)

    In the kingdom of God, believing is a prerequisite to receiving. God spoke to Mary and gave the assurances He always gives when He assigns the impossible to His people. Everything was in place for God to act. Everything waited on Mary to believe Him. Once she believed, it was done! It takes an undivided heart to believe under such circumstances and a pure heart to see God (Matt. 5:8; Heb. 12:14).

    In Support of Phil Robertson

    In Support of Phil Robertson

    It is interesting that the United States was formed with the purpose of allowing its citizens the right to express themselves by speech or their personal choice of religion, without interference from others.

    A sad result of accepting the gay lifestyle in our current society is the desire of those in support of the gay agenda to suppress the personal expressions of opinions by certain groups who believe strongly that this lifestyle is sinful.

    Christians did not define homosexuals or lesbians as sinful, this originated from the words of God, who created us. When those who believe what God said is true, simply communicate what He has said, we become labeled as “hateful,” and are prohibited from expressing our sincere opinions.

    The world should allow the expression of opinions and ideas, without the resulting censure of their thoughts by those in opposition.

    Although the A and E network supports the gay lifestyle, the expression of Phil Robertson’s personal opinion regarding the clear text from the Bible regarding homosexuals, is not impinged by his opinion. In this world we will always have those who do not agree with us, working alongside us. Should we constantly remove everyone from every work environment simply because they don’t agree with us? I think not.

    It would be commendable if A and E determined that the diversity of Phil Robertson’s opinions, with their own personal belief that the gay lifestyle is acceptible, would widen their network of viewers instead of inhibit it.

    All of us can allow each other to express our heartfelt beliefs, while agreeing to disagree.

    “Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight…And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” (Luke 3:4, 6)

    If we are to receive the powerful presence of God, we must prepare ourselves. John the Baptist was God’s messenger to help people prepare to receive the Savior of the world. John preached unwaveringly: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven at hand! (Matt. 3:2). Those who heard John’s message and prepared their lives recognized Jesus when He came, and they left all to follow Him. This was especially true of the disciples, whose hearts God Himself prepared (Matt. 16:17). Preparation must precede God’s presence!

    Now there was one, Anna, …a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. (Luke 2:36-37)

    Your faithfulness allows God to reveal greater insight to you than to the less faithful. Faithfulness brings opportunities to you that are not given to the unfaithful. God takes pleasure in answering prayers that come from a faithful heart.

    Anna had been a widow for many years. In her day, a widow had little status in society and was virtually helpless on her own. Anna spent her time, day and night, in prayer and fasting in the temple. As she prayed, she yearned to see the Messiah. God chose few people to encounter the Savior when He was born, revealing His Son only to those whose hearts were faithful and pure. Anna was one of those few. Jesus would later say to His followers, Blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear . . . it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given (Matt. 13:16, 11).

    An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.” (Matthew 2:13)

    Whenever God clearly speaks to you and you obey His will, you can expect to face opposition. Spiritual assaults and attacks by the ungodly are not always signs that you are out of the will of God; they may even indicate that you are in the very center of God’s will. Mary’s husband, Joseph, was a righteous man who feared God, yet his obedience to God forced him to flee for his life to a foreign country. Joseph’s hardship came, not because of his sin, but because of his obedience. Although Joseph and Mary were forced to move to another country, they remained in the center of God’s will.

    So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed. (Acts 19:20)

    Paul’s world worshiped idols. No idol was more revered in Ephesus than the goddess Diana. The great statue was housed in a magnificent temple and was recognized as one of the wonders of the world. An idol-making industry, providing a livelihood for many people, developed in Ephesus to support the widespread idolatry of the day.

    Paul did not go to Ephesus to condemn those worshiping idols but to unashamedly proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. As Paul shared the truths of God, and as people were set free from sins , idol worship began to decline. The contrast between stone carvings and God’s power to change lives became obvious. The righteous lives of the Christians stood in stark contrast to the hedonistic practices of the idol worshipers. The victorious Christian witness was so compelling that the economy of the entire city was thrown into upheaval as idolatry diminished in favor of Christianity.
