GREAT TRIBULATION comes just before the END OF THE WORLD.

DO NOT BE AFRAID!

Jesus explains in detail what we must expect should we be alive, saying: “When ye therefore [SHALL SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judæa flee into the mountains” (Matthew 24:15-16).

“And when ye shall [SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled” (Luke 21:20-22).

“Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
[FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE]” (Matthew 24:17-21).

“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls.
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:16-20).

“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
[THEN IF ANY MAN SHALL SAY UNTO YOU, LO, HERE IS CHRIST, OR THERE; BELIEVE IT NOT].
[FOR THERE SHALL ARISE FALSE CHRISTS], and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, [IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT].
Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:22-27).

“[AND WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS, THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH]” (Luke 21:28).

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:8).

End Of Days

GOD’s ELECT.

The Apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles asked: “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)

“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth” (Romans 8:32-33).

“Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Romans 8:34-35).

“As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:36-39).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), says: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

Commandments of GOD.

BELIEVE in his Son JESUS CHRIST and LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

The same way that the traffic laws must be obeyed in order to avoid tragic accidents, God gave commandments and statutes to humankind to be obedient to the word of God to avoid a tragic end.

“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).

“And this is his commandment, That [WE SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER], as he gave us commandment” (1 John 3:23).

“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 3:18).

“And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us” (1 John 3:23-24).

“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him” (1 John 2:3-5).

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit” (1 John 4:11-13).

GOSPEL of C H R I S T

The best for human beings to achieve in this lifetime is to come to knowledge of the truth: the word of God because this world is coming to an end but, God has promised us Eternal Life through his only begotten Son Jesus Christ in the other world without an end in the heavens (Psalm 46:4, 87:3) (Hebrews 12:22–24) (Revelation 2:7, 22:1-6).

“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he [MADE THE WORLDS]” (Hebrews 1:1–2).

The words of the Apostle Paul are as applicable to today when he said:

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the [Gentile]” (Romans 1:16).

“Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God” (1 Corinthians 4:1-1)

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:3-6).

Jesus Christ says: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3)

“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” (John 3:16).

L I F E or death = E T E R N A L L I F E or Second Death.

There are slogans in this world that are misleadimg and misrepresentative of our lifetime on this earth. Once such well know slogan is “You only live once”. To this end, many people have also expressed: “We may as well live life to the fullest because we have to die anyway”.

But, is it correct to say: “You only live once”?

The word of God says: “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3). “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

When human beings die this is not the End:

“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 warned when he was here on earth said: ‘Verily I say unto you, that there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power’” (Mark 9:1). “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12).

The mere mention of those words “taste of death” should send chills into everyone who has not as yet repented and does not believe the gospel because this is the Second Death!

In the Book of Revelation John foresaw the Day of Judgment, saying: “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:11-15).

We must be wise with our time on this earth; and do not waste this lifetime because whether we are alive or asleep we will be awake on the Last Day for the Day of Judgment to face the only Savior (Matthew 25:31-46): Jesus Christ who says:

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

Emergence

LIFETIME versus LIFE.

When God created man he was only given a lifetime.

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7).

We only have a “…breath of life…” or a Lifetime; we do not have Life because of the transgressions of the first man Adam and Woman Eve (Genesis 2:16–17).

“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).

“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” (John 3:16).

The Apostle Paul said: “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:2–3).

Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God says: “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” (John 5:39–40).

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

Stairway leads to cross and glowing light

PARADISE OF GOD is in H E A V E N (Psalm 46:4, 87:3) (Hebrews 12:22–24) (Revelation 2:7, 22:1-6).

Anyone with beliefs and doctrines that Jesus is coming to this earth to set up Paradise would be wise to come to knowledge of the truth.

Jesus is very clear when he says: “[LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES UPON EARTH], where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But [LAY UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES IN HEAVEN], where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. [I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU]. And if I go and prepare a place for you, [I WILL COME AGAIN, AND RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF; THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO]” (John 14:2-3).

There is another planet Earth in the heavens but, it is not visible.

“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).

“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).

Climb To Success

HEAVEN AND EARTH will pass away! (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10).

Do not be deceived: This heaven and earth has a “shelf life” (Acts 17:26)!

Although God “laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever” (Psalm 104:5); this heaven and earth is not a space of everlasting habitations (Matthew 24:35) (Mark 13:31) (Luke 21:33) (2 Peter 3:10).

“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end” (Psalm 102:25-27). “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God” (Psalm 90:2).

NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH (Isaiah 65:17) (2 Peter 3:13) (Revelation 21:1).

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. Be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I create” (Isaiah 65:17-18).

Jesus was very clear when he told his disciples, saying: “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2-3).

There is another planet Earth in the heavens but, it is not visible.

“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).

Jesus is in the heavens where there is already NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH where there is the NEW JERUSALEM. In the Book of Revelation John said:

“[AND I SAW A GREAT WHITE THRONE, AND HIM THAT SAT ON IT, FROM WHOSE FACE THE EARTH AND THE HEAVEN FLED AWAY; AND THERE WAS FOUND NO PLACE FOR THEM]” (Revelation 20:11).

“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).

Fantasy World

END OF DAYS = END OF YEARS before the END OF THE WORLD.

The time is coming when it will be the last years on this earth. Many people will be undoubtedly frightened because Jesus pointed out that “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25–26).

“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them” (Jeremiah 10:2).

We as God’s elect will not be afraid as the heathen because we have refuge in the Kingdom of God.

“The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:6-7, 10-11).

“Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20).

“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD” (Lamentations 3:25-26).
