You have read the Holy Scripture and heard the prophecies, which has cast most into denial or an elevated state of fear. Many of you have seen with your own eyes the increasing number of major earthquakes, catastrophic storms, seemingly endless heatwaves, and forest fires engulfing an entire continent. At times it seems like the world is coming apart with one disaster after another. Many of you have adopted your favorite prophecy, which attempts to give meaning to what’s currently happening in the world and what’s on the horizon. Some have believed that before things get too bad, they will be whisked away in a secret rapture, while others believe that they must endure the Great Tribulation to strengthen their faith and mold them into all godliness. Unfortunately, some believe that they can bring the Kingdom in by force through the political process and the institution of new laws. Their prophecy is summed up in bringing in the Christian Kingdom by force forcing everyone to obey. Contrary to what you believe, the truth is we are all going to die. Contrary to what you believe the heavens and the earth will pass away, perhaps sooner than you think. This could be your last warning. Continue reading This Could Be Your Last Warning
If you haven’t noticed Canada is on fire and its smoke is invading the United States. If you haven’t noticed these viruses simply don’t go away but continue morphing into yet another plague. If you haven’t noticed lawlessness has gotten so bad that gangs smash and grab whatever they want with no hindrance from law enforcement. If you haven’t noticed corruption has gotten so bad it’s really difficult to discern who’s telling the truth. If you haven’t noticed what is now happening on the planet mirrors many of the plagues, woes, and wrath of God in the Book of Revelation. For example, the fourth bowl of God’s wrath seems strikingly familiar with what is happening now. The Bible says, “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory” (Revelation 16:8-9). It would be difficult to admit that we have not entered the Great Tribulation. I am convinced that God is leading me to help His children to survive the Great Tribulation. This will be the first of a series of articles on how to survive the Great Tribulation. Continue reading Help to Survive the Great Tribulation
To miss what is going on in the world, we would need to be living in a bubble. Of course, as believers, we knew that this day would come when the whole world seems to be falling apart from horrific firestorms to unbelievably extreme temperatures and from unchecked lawlessness to the grossest of sexual perversions. Perhaps the worst for the true believer is to see so many fall away and embrace all the lies of the devil as if they were the gospel truth. It is enough to make you weep in great agony.
We Can Make Things Better
Perhaps the most dangerous lie is that we can make the world better through the political process. This has been a lie used many times throughout history raising up the Caesars, Napoleons, and Hitler’s promising to make things better, but in the end creating a cult-like mentality, which brought death and destruction to the world. This thinking of making things better through the political process is antithetical to the Way presented by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Christ came to earth to show us a better way of truly making things better. The Christian way is through transformational change one person at a time. The heart and mind must be changed by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. The devil cares only about manipulating your heart and mind to believe his lies thus creating a cult-like mentality. He wants you to believe that forcing everyone through his new laws will cause them to align with his way, or your way of thinking, which will overcome the divisions, and establish a brave new world. This is a very dangerous and deceptive lie of the devil that will ingeniously target religious people who will be willing to follow him to hell and back. They will even proclaim him as some kind of saint or savior that will deliver the world from very evil and corrupt people. They may even proclaim that God has raised him to fix the world through the political process. Stop listening to the devil who can even disguise himself as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:14). This will be the path that the dreaded Antichrist will take causing you to believe that he has your best interest at heart. This deception will be so strong that people will freely worship him as the savior of humanity believing that he alone will stop the wars, the outrageous lawlessness, and even the wrath of God as we had discussed earlier. Let’s stop listening to the devil’s lies and return to God’s way of real lasting change. Continue reading Seven Lies of the Devil – Part II
God is glorified for many things, but we don’t often think about God being glorified in His righteous judgment coming now upon the earth. God since the beginning has always been glorified when His chosen people followed the path that was laid out for them in loving obedience to His commandments. The Bible says, “Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified” (Isiah 60:21). God brought forth His commandments to show them the path of righteousness and the branch of His planting. This branch looked forward to the salvation of the whole world, a people in distant lands walking in righteousness to the glory of God. God’s work was the gift of His beloved Son to make propitiation for the sins of humanity (I John 2:2). God’s work was the glorious transformation of fallen humanity in Christ by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:22-24). Furthermore, the God of creation would be glorified as His beloved children would let their light shine through their good works (Matthew 5:16). In time, they would also learn how to glorify God in their body and in their Spirit, which are God’s (I Corinthians 6:20). This would only be the beginning of a deeper journey of glorifying God in every situation including the coming judgment. Continue reading Glorify God in the Coming Judgment
My greatest desire is to think God’s thoughts after Him. Our minds are so cluttered with the thoughts of the world, receiving new information at the speed of light, it’s most difficult to even hear only God’s thoughts. So, the process must begin with emptying our minds of meaningless thoughts that are casting us in one direction, then another. We must stop the endless flow of information coming in from the world. These thoughts come from many different sources. They come from Television to 24-hour cable news, and from social media to everyone expressing their own opinion. This information comes from books of so-called higher learning to endless searches on the internet, and from the latest popular videos to artificial intelligence, all who claim to have the answers to man’s dilemma. We are living in a sea of information filling our minds with scientific and expert information that’s constantly changing. We can’t all become monks and withdraw completely from the world, but we can be more selective to the point of cutting back ninety percent of the information flow. Although this would empty our minds of volumes of meaningless, contradictory, and changing information, it would not completely solve the problem. Vain imaginations would quickly take root prodded by the powers of darkness. Continue reading Thinking God’s Thoughts After Him
