Progression of Biblical Prophecy a Tribute to Earth Day

At what rate is Biblical Prophecy being fulfilled is the biggest question occupying the mind of religious man. From the first century until now every generation believed theirs was the last, and rightly so, because it was written in such a way that every successive generation would prepare for Christ’s return. To deal with the world-wide plagues and catastrophic disaster’s in the book of Revelation most have either put them during a seven-year period of the Great Tribulation (either before or after the rapture) or have simply spiritualized the events. To choose the latter would dismiss the wrath of God, and to choose the former would not allow for the natural unfolding of events, but see them all unfolding at an alarming rate, sending the world’s population into panic and extreme shock. On the other hand, what if we interpreted it beyond the confines of a seven-year period where all the Biblical prophecies are being naturally unfolded over a longer period of time that stretches from the first century until all is fulfilled.

To do so should not negate the fact that we must always be ready for Christ’s return at any moment. So, why would we entertain an idea like this, waiting for all Biblical Prophecy to be fulfilled in its time. I believe to do so would immediately open our eyes to see the progression of Biblical Prophecy from the pollution of our oceans to the eventual death of every sea creature. To do so would see the progression of the welfare State to allowing even more of the world’s population to totally depend on the government. To do so would see the technological advancements necessary for controlling the population by assigning a number, a mark, and a way to always know their exact location. To do so would see the progression of introducing more drugs to keep the population slightly sedated and easier to manage. To do so would see the progression of all the plagues and catastrophic disasters caused by the neglect of our world, its ecosystem, and their failure to implement regulations that keep fallen humanity from destroying the earth.

Well, if we refuse the progression of Biblical Prophecy then we will be continually side-tracked and led astray by every so-called Prophet and his or her latest Prophecy. They say that the frog misses the progression of the water’s temperature being slightly increased until it’s too late and the water is already boiling. In the same way, let’s not miss the progression of world events, but do everything we can to be good stewards of our beautiful earth. Let’s not miss the progression, but teach people to work for their living and not become depended upon the State. Let’s not miss the progression, but see the real and present danger of mind-altering drugs. Let’s not miss the progression, but refuse any kind of technology that would track our location or attempt to mark us in some way for our so-called benefit. Let’s not miss the progression.

So just how bad do things need to get before Christ returns? Because no one knows the day or hour, it can be at any time. However, if we conclude that the trumpets and bowls of God’s wrath is real, but happens in a short time frame, then God would need to turn the heat up rather quickly. As we have already seen the plagues and calamities have been progressively gotten worse since the First Century and it would not take much to push the ecosystem beyond repair, to cause a cascade of events. For example, the pollution of the seas (the Second Trumpet) will in its time turn into the mass extinction of all sea life as we know it (The Second Bowl). For another example wars and rumors of war will in its time turn into Armageddon where the Kings of the East decide to attack the West, the epicenter of Christianity and freedom of religion. For example, the pollution of our water supply (the Third Trumpet) will in its time turn into the pollution of all drinking water on a global scale (the Third Bowl). For another example air pollution in many of the great cities around the world (the Fourth Trumpet) will in its time turn into a global epidemic of lung disease and death. In time this pollution will also break down the ozone layer as witnessed in (the Fourth Bowl) causing excessive sun burns, skin cancer and even death. No one would venture outside without protective clothing and face mask.

I hope that you can see from these few examples that end-time prophecy is progressive, God has given us a clear signpost of things to come with ample opportunity to turn things around through repentance of sin, and to stop destroying the earth out of greed, selfishness, and neglect. The capstone to these events is the Beast who will control most of the countries in the world and specifically the Western countries along with the United States of America. Although, we do not know who this end-time Beast is, there have been many over the centuries who could have easily fulfilled his agenda by having total control of the population through buying and selling, and regulating the acceptable State Religion. Of course, this State Religion could easily encompass all religions or none, but worship of the Beast would be mandatory. Although like the examples we saw above, this progression would be so slow that no one (except God’s chosen elect) would know that they are being controlled or worshipping a world leader. Like the analogy of the frog, dear Christian, let’s not be overtaken by concentrating on every little event and missing the big picture.

We will all agree that the Day of the Lord, Christ’s glorious Second Coming, is at hand where things will progress in its time from the sounding of the Trumpets to the pouring out of the bowls of God’s wrath where no one knows the exact time. Although we do know it will move rather slow in its time from partial fulfillment of prophecy to the total destruction of our planet earth as we now know it, moving so slow and methodically that the completing of God’s wrath will be missed by the majority of the population. The world will somehow accept (or miss) the total pollution of the sea, air and water; they will miss the control of the Beast and the world government, they will miss the mark (whatever form it takes), while most will be focused on individual events, they will miss the big picture and will not be ready for the return of Christ. Dear Christian, I look to spare you of that, so prepare today by keeping your eyes open to the progression of prophecy. It’s happening now, open your eyes and see the big picture. We don’t need the scientist to tell us that the earth is in trouble, we simply need to look at the progressiveness of prophecy.

“For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:38-39).

The Immortal Message of Easter

On Easter morn, we are drawn back to the message of the Cross that all-encompassing will of God. We are catapulted beyond the simple historical message of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection to the infinite heights of God’s will for our life in Christ Jesus. If we only see the historical event steeped in tradition then we have missed the message. In the Apostle Paul’s farewell message to the Ephesian elders he declared, “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God” (Acts 20:27). And the starting place in this wonderful journey in understanding the whole will of God is by following the admonition of Christ to pick up our cross and follow Him. The Bible says, “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23). To pick up the cross means death. It simply cannot mean anything else. It is a conscious decision to follow Christ in His death by dying to self. As we enter the dark night of our soul we discover that everything of the old sin nature must die. Every vestige of pride must be nailed to the cross. Every glimmer of self-will must die with Christ. Through faith in Christ our death to self becomes a reality. Step by step we are able to put off the old life.

The good news is we are no longer held in bondage to the old life. Old sins are forgiven by the precious blood of the Lamb. As Christ hung on the Cross of Calvary all our sins, past, present and future have been laid on Him removing that eternal barrier between us and a holy God. “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:12). Through faith in Christ all our sins are forgiven and its power broken. Satan was soundly defeated at the Cross and no longer has power over those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Only by following Christ in His death on the Cross can this power of sin and the devil be broken forever in the life of the believer. Don’t let another Easter pass you by without making a conscious decision to pick up your cross daily and follow Him. Don’t fear death to self, because on the other side there is real life in Christ. Dying to self and putting off the old life is only the first part of the journey. We must continue to understand the full will of God.

Christians from around the world will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, because without it we are still trapped in our sin, in bondage to the old life, and resting under the power of Satan. On that glorious Easter morn as the rock was rolled back and Christ rose from the dead a new and living way was opened to all those who would now put their faith in Him. How magnificent is this new life in Christ is beyond our finite comprehension? For those who have journeyed deep into the new life in Christ will confirm that every day becomes more glorious. Unfortunately, many have not journeyed much further than the door and have rested contently on the milk of God’s Word. As mere infants, they delight in retelling the same old stories over and over again believing somehow that they alone will bring forth spiritual fruit and a deeper life in Christ. They pass over the commands of God as mere suggestions or only relevant for some future dispensation. They pass over the gifts of the Spirit as if they only appeared in the first century. Tragically many Christians never really experience the new life in Christ thus celebrating the resurrection as mere tradition reenacting its historical event.

He is risen! Christ has risen from the dead! In faith, we follow Christ in His resurrection putting off the old life by dying to self and putting on the new life by becoming obedient to His commands. Let’s be clear commands are not works. We have been saved by faith and all our good works will not get us one inch closer to heaven or a deeper life in Christ. On the other hand, the commands of God teach us how to live this new life in Him. Through our faith in Christ we have already been made into a new creation. The old has gone, behold all things are new. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). When we put off the old life then we are empty and ready for the Master’s use. Self and tradition cannot put on the new life, but only Christ through His wonderful commands demonstrating the will of God in us. Do you want to grow spiritually from one degree of glory to another? Do you want that deeper life in Christ? Then be filled with the Holy Spirit of God and allow Him to lead you step by step to become obedient to the whole counsel of God through His holy commands written on your heart. As you celebrate the resurrection this Easter morn let me encourage you to leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity. How marvelous to be in Christ growing into a deeper relationship with Him. Thank you Lord for your death and resurrection all praise honor and glory to your Name. Thank you Lord for our new life in you. Praise God.

What’s Impeding Your Faith?

The Bible says, “Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth (Luke 18:8b).” The answer is not a lot for most in the later days will allow many things to impede their faith. Although there will be a faithful remnant, I am sure that their faith will be mocked by the world. It will seem inconsistent with reason and against all the established norms of a pagan world. Unlike the faithless who had long given up their faith, they will continue to cry out day and night for God to vindicate them by righteously judging their oppressors. They will continue to cry out asking God to fulfill all His promises, especially the one that does not allow them to be tempted beyond what they can handle (See I Corinthians 10:13). Over the course of time they have learned well the things that impede their faith, being careful to resist them at every point. So, what are these things that impede our faith?

Perhaps the biggest thing to impede our faith is listening to, believing in, and appropriating the world’s wisdom into our life. Clearly, God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. So, to chase after the knowledge in the world puts you on a very slippery slope. Of course, we are not talking about all knowledge, but the knowledge that pertains to life, such as, godly communication, instructions concerning our interpersonal relationships, and specific instructions concerning our spousal relationship. It gives knowledge to parents on how to raise their children in the Lord and their financial responsibility to one’s family. It gives lessons on spiritual growth and the use of our spiritual gifts. It gives directives concerning our relationship to both the church and the government. It also gives timeless knowledge on how to care for our own body by learning how to deal with emotional and psychological problems, along with good eating habits, exercise, and sleep. There is endless knowledge from God’s Holy Word that gives us everything we need for living a godly life. However, if we refuse to follow God’s direction then we are inclined to follow a mixed bag of knowledge from the world and from our self.

This assimilated information moves us further away from God’s divine plan for our life, thus impeding our faith, and putting us on the downward path toward death and destruction. Our faith in God will cause us to seek out His knowledge alone, on how to live out life pleasing to Him. A life full of spiritual energy to become all that God wants us to be in this life. A life full of indescribable joy that has learned the power of forgiveness, of turning the other cheek, and going the extra mile with others. A healthy life both mentally and physically that has learned from God how to deal immediately with grief, loneness, guilt, depression, anxiety, and many other problems, not by using psychiatric drugs or receiving the world’s counsel, but by following the Wonderful Counselor and His methods that have worked for thousands of years before psychology had ever arrived on the scene. The more we follow the Knowledge of God by putting it into our lives the stronger our faith grows and the more we grow spiritually from one degree of glory to another. Friends, please don’t follow your self-knowledge and the world’s knowledge, especially when it disagrees with God’s knowledge, which is His divine plan for your life.

The second thing that will impede our faith is giving up, which is demonstrated by our lack of prayer and the reading of God’s Word – the Bible. It is so sad that so many just go through the motions of being a faithful Christian. They may pray, but not from the heart believing that God is actually listening. They don’t pray believing if it’s God’s will then the prayer will be answered. They may even read the Bible, but they get nothing out of it or what they do get comes from their own self-consciousness and not from God or His Holy Spirit. They simply give up trying to become all that God wants them to be in this life. So, many of them chase after the world’s entertainment, sports, hobbies, and other social activities to fill up the void in their life caused by not following God as they should. The faithful Christian prays all the time believing in his heart that God is not only listening, but also giving him direction through the indwelling Holy Spirit. We must not give up. To give up impedes our faith, stops our spiritual growth, and separates us from all the joy of being a new creation in Christ.

The third thing that impedes our faith is not believing that God will deliver us from our oppressors. These I call the silent Christians. They go around walking on egg shells being careful to never rock the boat. They go out of their way to act like others in the world so they can be accepted and not mocked or ridiculed. Refusing to step out on faith weakens our faith, which in time will impede our faith. Although it is clear from Scripture that God will vindicate us, many have taken the low path and decided not to trust God to deliver them from those who may cause them harm. This vindication from God could come at the end of our life. We may not even get to see it, but it will come. It may not be soon, but it will come quickly often times when we least expect it. The Bible says, “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth” (Luke 18:7-8)? The dividing line has already been drawn between the liberal and the conservative. It has already been drawn between the Christian who decides to follow all of God’s knowledge in the Bible alone and for those who have decided to assimilate it with the world’s knowledge. The later proudly proclaims that God simply did not give us all the information needed for the 21st Century and it’s up to humanity to fill in the blanks. Yet, they are mistaken, because the knowledge is there. It just needs to be re-discovered and put into the life of the believer. Christians who do not want to impede their faith must step out on faith by proclaiming the truth to everyone who spouts the world’s knowledge and spurns the knowledge of God. To do so will restore our faith.

The fourth thing that impedes our faith is listening to the lies of the enemy. He will tell you that you are just wasting your time in prayer. Better just go so see a Doctor or a Psychiatrist. Clearly, there is a time to see a Doctor to address our physical concerns, but even that does not limit our need for prayer. For I have seen many miracles where even the Doctors admitted to observing a real miracle in their patients. The enemy also lies about your worth before God. As a new person in Christ you are worth everything to Him, but the enemy will whisper in your ear that you are worthless by reminding you of the things you did in your past. The enemy will tell you, “How could God forgive someone like you?” He may even go so far as to say that you are not even saved. To listen to the lies of the enemy will impede your faith. To listen to God alone will increase your faith allowing you to stand firm against the enemy in all of his malicious attacks.

Will Christ find faith upon the earth when He returns in glory? The good news is that Christ will find a very strong faith among the faithful remnant, but He will find none among many who claim to be Christian. Let me encourage you dear friends to rediscover all the treasures in the Bible and see for yourself that God has indeed given us everything we need for life and godliness. In fact, the Bible says so, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). Amen. The Bible never mixes words. If it says all things that pertain to life and godliness, then that is exactly what it means. So, please dear friend get out your Bibles, some of you may need to dust them off, and start to read day and night if necessary until you come to a deeper understanding of this knowledge that will strengthen your faith and prepare you for the days ahead.

Bring Trump Down to Your Own Peril

We would have to be blind not to see the liberal establishment aggressively trying to bring down President Donald Trump. This is much more than just fault finding and nipping at his heals. It is much more than just spreading lies through the dishonest media or marching in the streets. They have changed the narrative. By doing so they are once again making themselves look like the good guys in the eyes of the people. They do this by calling themselves the “resistance” as if they are resisting an evil power, but they forget to point out that they are the ones who have kept the black community in bondage to a life of drugs, gangs, and the crumbling inner city. They forget to mention that they are the ones who first sought to sterilize the negro or at least kill their unborn children by the millions to keep them in check and under control. They have changed the narrative by calling the conservative party the party of hate, yet they are the ones who have encouraged their people to resist law enforcement while they vandalize and destroy public property. They are the ones who have caught conservatives and beat them publicly. Unlike the previous administration while most conservatives remained relatively quiet the liberal establishment has attempted to block nearly everything our current President is attempting to accomplish by pointing out real and unreal negative points to all the people.

Four Most Horrifying Words

What a glorious day that will be at the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but for some it will not be so glorious. The unbelieving world will cower in their caves crying out to the rocks to fall upon them and hide them from the coming Lord and His wrath. (See Revelation 6:16-17). On the other hand, all those who claimed to believe in Christ will be awakened at an hour they did not expect and will rush out to meet the Lord with glad tidings in their heart thinking all is well. They all without exception had become drowsy and fell asleep, because the promise of His coming had been for a very long time. To this date its been nearly two thousand years since the promise was first given to His disciples. Perhaps the great missionary efforts had ceased and revivals had become a relic of the past replaced with conferences geared to a favorite doctrine. Even one on one evangelism was frowned upon my most for being too exclusive. It appears that the entire church drifted off to sleep and was only now awakened at the news of Christ’s return, which no doubt caused much panic among all to let their light shine in a very dark world as they all rushed to meet the bridegroom.
