E T E R N A L versus Temporal.

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:4).

In the Book of Revelation John revealed, saying: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Revelation 21:1-3).

Word of God = Truth = Eternal Life.

We cannot believe some words of God and doubt other words of God!

Jesus is very clear when he says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by [EVERY] word of God” (Luke 4:4).

The word of God is the only Truth; there is no half truths or fractional truths or his or her truth.

The truth is the truth is the truth. “We can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth” (2 Corinthians 13:8).

“What is truth?”

Now, let us read very carefully what King Jesus says: “Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice” (John 18:37).

Therefore, it is very imperative that we believe every word of God because if we do not then we will NOT hear Jesus’ voice when he calls because he explained says:
“[MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE], and I know them, and they follow me. And [I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE]; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand” (John 10:23:29).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the [DEAD SHALL HEAR THE VOICE OF THE SON OF GOD, AND SHALL COME FORTH; THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF LIFE; AND THEY THAT HAVE DONE EVIL, UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF DAMNATION]. I can of mine own self do nothing: [AS I HEAR, I JUDGE: AND MY JUDGMENT IS JUST; BECAUSE I SEEK NOT MINE OWN WILL, BUT THE WILL OF THE FATHER WHICH HATH SENT ME]” (John 5:25, 29–30).

“Blessed are they that [HEAR THE WORD OF GOD, AND KEEP IT]” (Luke 11:28).

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

On the Last Day, the Day of Judgment when time ends, “Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11).

Love of the word of God versus love of the world.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever” (1 John 2:15–17).

Jesus says: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).

“Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

World And Cross

The use of the word “rapture” = Rebellion against the word of God.

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry” (1 Samuel 15:22).

The word “rapture” is NOT a word of God.

All we have to do is to type in the word “rapture” into any search engine and there will be numerous results from “rapture of the church” and the like. There are disgreements whether it is going to be a “pre-tribuation” or “mid-tribulation” or “post tribulation” while many believe that they are going up in the “rapture” to heaven and then coming back with Jesus, and the list goes on.

There is utter confusion in the use of this word!

There is no confusion in the word of God.
Furthermore, (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) which is often quoted as the “rapture” event is actually the summary of the events on the Last Day from the beginning when Jesus comes for the Day of Judgment, to the ending when kingdom of God is redeemed to heaven.
“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).

Our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ is very clear when he says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).

“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:36-37).

“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day” (John 12:48).

LIFE versus death.

The word of God says:

“The labor of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin” (Proverbs 10:16).

“As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death” (Proverbs 11:19).

“In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death” (Proverbs 12:28).

“The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil” (Proverbs 19:23).

“The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death” (Proverbs 14:27).

The LAST DAY = DAY OF JUDGMENT = GATHERING then comes REDEMPTION of the KINGDOM to HEAVEN before the END.

On the day that Jesus returns, the Last Day will commence the gathering unto himself, his sheepfold away from the goats (Matthew 25:31–34) (Matthew 13:37–43).

Jesus says: “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and [KEEPETH HIS GARMENTS, LEST HE WALK NAKED], and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that [EVERY ONE MAY RECEIVE THE THINGS DONE IN HIS BODY], according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

Jesus is very clear when he asks: “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8).

“The LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south” (Zechariah 14:8–9, 4).

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call” (Joel 2:31-32).

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by [OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM], whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace” (2 Thessalonians 2:1, 14-16).

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).

What TIME is it?

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” (Romans 13:11-12).

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

Earth to EDEN: The TRIP of this LIFETIME!

Let us make sure that we are always ready, watching and have on clothes because our Lord, Savior and King says:

“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God” (Revelation 2:7).

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give [EVERY MAN] according as his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12).

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Revelation 22:13).

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie” (Revelation 22:14-15).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:16-17).

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

LIFETIME OFFERS: GOD or world?

GOD’s offer is ETERNAL LIFE:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16-18).

Jesus, the only begotten Son also expressed to his disciples who follows him will in addition to Eternal Life obtain a hundredfold more of that which was forsaken in this world (Matthew 19:27). As it is written:

“And Jesus said unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, [SHALL RECEIVE AN HUNDREDFOLD, AND SHALL INHERIT EVERLASTING LIFE]. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first” (Matthew 19:28-30).

Satan’s offer is the world: Whenever the prince of this world, the devil, aka Satan comes around promising anything in exchange for bowing down and worshipping him; remember the time he took Jesus up to a high mountain and showed him the kingdoms of this world, and said: “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9).

Jesus said; ”Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10).

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36-37). “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Luke 16:13).

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19). “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever” (1 John 2:17).

GOD = LIGHT = ETERNAL LIFE.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

God sent his only begotten Son Jesus to this earth, as it is written: “To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:79).

Jesus says: “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).
“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:5).

“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” (John 11:25-26).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).

“Wherefore God saith: ‘Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light’” (Ephesians 5:14).

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:50-51).

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
