Stop looking at the signs and start looking at your walk. So many in today’s world are obsessed at looking at the signs. From viewing one YouTube video after another to listening to every new false prophet that comes along, the Christian community is being forced further into captivity by the prince of darkness. Signs are important otherwise Christ would not have given them. Signs are like signpost that give directions and alerts us when we are close to our destination. To concentrate only on the signs and not the many other things necessary to be a good and safe driver would not only be foolish, but could end in tragedy. Well, it’s the same way when it comes to concentrating on the signs of Christ’s Second Coming and not on the many things it takes to be faithful followers of Christ. Yes, many things. So many things that Jesus Christ gave us the indwelling Spirit to remind us of everything He said and taught. The Bible says, “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when he the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth…” (John 16:12-13a). So, stop looking constantly at the signs and pay attention to your driving. Stop obsessing on the signs of Christ’s return in Glory and let’s agree to spend more time in preparation for His arrival by listening to God through the Spirit. Without the Spirit, the Bible would not be discernible. It would be a nice history book and wise teachings from an ancient Teacher, but remiss of Spiritual power. The power necessary for spiritual growth and faithfulness to God. Continue reading Looking at the Signs or at Your Walk?
It was Jesus Christ who said, “I am with alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20). Now, I do realize that some translations like the NIV indicate that Jesus said, He would only be with us until the end of the age, which could be at the end of the Jewish Age, or the age of the gentiles, but clearly that is not what was said. Contrary to the modern versions of the Bible the King James Version clearly says, that Jesus Christ will be with us until the end of the world. Every believer knows that Jesus Christ is with us through the Holy Spirit that resides in each one of us, giving us conviction, comfort, counsel, and direction. So as we approach the end of days we should take great comfort in the fact that He will be with us until the end of the world. I daily, look forward to receiving His wonderful counsel in a day of great confusion when we are all, being pulled in different direction, many times by the enemy himself. Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to guide us into a deeper understanding of His work in us. Every true believer in Christ knows with all assurance that we have received a gift of the Holy Spirit to reside in us throughout the remainder of our journey here on earth. He is not just a Holy Visitor but a Permanent Resident that will never leave us or forsake us. This Third Person of the Trinity is at all times connected to, in relationship with, and at One with both the Son and the Father. What an all powerful love, to be with us, to reside in us, throughout all of life, during the best of times and the worst of times. Continue reading I’m With You Always
Mankind is always learning but never perceiving. He is always studying but never understanding. With man’s quest for the truth and his efforts in higher learning it has only driven him further away from the truth. With all of man’s dreams, visions, and so called prophecies it has only driven him further away from the truth. Like a rudderless ship many are always cast about by every wind of doctrine, but never coming to the simple truth. For a reason that I will explain later, many have never been happy with the simple truth, but have attempted to complicate it, by adding teachings, upon teachings, too such a degree that the truth is lost and man is left in the wilderness wandering about with no hope but condemned to a life of misery and greater confusion. In large part this is the condition of the church around the world and especially here in America. They have lost their way and no longer love the truth which has lulled the church to sleep. No matter what happens the church will not awaken until she returns to the simple truth. Persecution and death will not awaken her, nor will death and destruction caused by the increase in natural disasters, nor will wars or rumors of war, but they will remain in their sleep continually tossed about by every wind of doctrine. Even revivals will not awaken the church until she returns to the simple truth and demonstrate her love for it. Until that happens she along with the rest of the world will rest under the powerful delusion sent by God for their rejection of His truth. Continue reading God’s Powerful Delusion
Never in my life have I seen three viruses descend upon the planet all at the same time. Is there any hope for humanity? Only for the true Christian is their hope, because no matter what happens at least he is assured of eternal life free from all the pain that’s coming upon the world. I am afraid that the coming Antichrist and his New World Order will use each of these viruses as a means to their end to establish total control over all of humanity. These viruses will unleash an unimaginable fear to have ever fallen upon the entire world. No, this is not a plot for an upcoming horror movie nor is it the vain imagination of a would be prophet. Perhaps it’s only reality in the making that simply needs to be unmasked. Only time will prove or disprove what I am about to write. The order in which these viruses are unveiled should in no way elevate their importance or the magnitude of their destruction. What is important however is that they all work in tandem to frighten the entire world into total submission to its new world leaders.

What would it look like, a world without Christ? For the transformed believer in Christ it may seem too horrible to imagine. Yet, in the midst of the encroaching darkness we must not only imagine such a scenario we must contemplate its coming reality. In a dark world without Christ it would be totally left alone. Without Christ all religious instruction from previous ages and the sacred writings of the New Testament would be meaningless. Very few would understand the depth of its teachings or how to live by its standards. Essentially, the world is left alone in its fight against gross immorality, wars, domestic abuse, and emotional problems plaguing the planet. Many in the world would still hang on to their old superstitions, gods and goddess, while the so called enlightened ones would develop their own strategies and humanistic beliefs to deal with the worlds problems. Counseling centers and drug stores would more than dot the landscape in a worldwide quest to reign in fallen humanity. The world would be no better off as horrific crimes would increase in number and magnitude. Real lasting peace among the nations would slip away to continued regional and global conflicts with ever increasing terrorism destroying life and property. Yet, those of the Star Trek generation still hold onto their hope of a humanistic world of peace and tranquility without Christ. Continue reading A World Without Christ
