The L A S T D A Y is the E N D of the World.

Jesus’ disciples yearn to know when they asked: “Tell us, when shall these things be; and [WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Take heed that no man deceive you’” (Matthew 24:4).

“For many shall come in my name, saying, ‘I am Christ;’ and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:5).

“‘I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the [LAST DAY]’” (John 6:32-35, 39).

“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).

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the [ENDING], saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:52–53).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

“Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:18).

Spiritual WAR: TRUTH versus Lies. LIFE versus Death.

“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever? Amen” (Romans 1:25).

From the beginning of time, there has been the ‘spiritual war’ whether to believe the Holy One of the truth (Genesis 2:16–17) or believe the wicked one of the lie (Genesis 3:4), and this war is still raging to this day.

The Apostle Paul put this into perspective when he said, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil” (Romans 13:3).

The god of this world, the prince of this world, the prince of the power of the air, the dragon, the Devil, also known as Satan, the wicked one, the fallen once anointed angel, Lucifer, and all his fallen angels which are locked in chains of darkness want all humans to believe that this world on this earth will be saved, but it is a false hope for the future. Nothing in this world is going to last forever. Do not fall into the web of deceit and lies of the prince of this world “because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12).

Today, a large percentage of people on this earth, unfortunately, do not realize how the prince of this world is deceiving the whole world. The prince of this world, the devil aka Satan, just as he uses riches, also uses beauty as a disguise to deceive the whole world.

The Apostle Paul well noted that we must examine ourselves, whether we are in the faith and are living by the gospel of the truth when he said:

“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth” (2 Corinthians 13:5-8). “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

A world of Foolishness (1 Corinthians 3:19).

Who is dating who? Who just broke up with who? This person is slamming this other person. This video just went viral for the wrong reason. This person just won a multimillion dollar contract. This person is now dating. How to get the perfect summer beach body, and the list goes on and on.

Is it any wonder that there are over one billion people living in conditions of poverty in this world.

Go now and click to open any major internet portal, and without any doubt there will be no mention of God or his only begotten Son Jesus Christ.

Instead the pages are filled with world news about war mongering; celebrity sightings and make-ups and break-ups; money; lifestyles and so on. All things of the world: the prince of this world.

“Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God” (James 4:4). “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

“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).

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us” (1 John 4:1-3).

Especially in this present time, we are to be watchful in all things to keep at the forefront of our daily lives the love of the word of God, the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; and not the love of this world (Luke 4:4, 11:28).

Look up to HEAVEN.

We live in world where there are constant distractions at every turn in this lifetime.

Especially in this present time, just look around and there are people every where looking down on their smart mobile devices.

Let us be reminded to look up to Heaven, and take the time to read the word of God on that smart mobile device because Jesus says: “‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24). “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).

“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).

Did Man go to the Moon?

To believe that man went to the Moon and will one day get to Mars is to renounce, rebel and reject the word of God. There is no debating the word of God.

The Moon and the Sun are Lights!

When God created this heaven and earth it is written:
“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also” (Genesis 1:16).

Furthermore, when God created the first man and woman who sinned in Eden (Genesis 2:8-9) it is written:

“And the LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever. Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life” (Genesis 3:22-24).

Do not fall for the lies and deceits of the prince of ths world, Lucifer, the devil, aka Satan.

The devil and his angels were created mightier than humans “which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation” (Jude 1:6), and “God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment” (2 Peter 2:4).

“These are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise” (Psalm 36:12).

Every human being would be wise to follow Jesus Christ because only he has God given power to give humans the “Light of Life” to leave this heaven and earth. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).

King Jesus left no doubt when he said, “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

T I M E is getting SHORT.

These words maybe ridiculed or even rejected by untold numbers of people but, for those among us in now called in the Kingdom of God, the signs around us couldn’t be more clear as the light of the day.

In the last years of time the prophet Daniel foretold, saying: “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand” (Daniel 12:10).

We would be wise to be righteous than to be wicked. To be righteous is to succeed in passing the test of time of this lifetime to inherit everlasting life and peace (Matthew 25:31–34); to be wicked is to lose the time of this life and to be condemned to everlasting death and punishment (Matthew 25:41, 46).

“O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters” (Jeremiah 17:13).

“Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness” (Psalm 97:11-12). “The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever” (Psalm 37:18).

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30). “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3).

“Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore” (Psalm113:2).

GOD, the FATHER and JESUS the only begotten SON.

How can anyone not love God, the FATHER and his only begotten Son. JESUS is beyond any rational comprehension:

“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 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).

“The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

“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).

The mere mention of those words “taste of death” should send chills into every one who has not as yet repented and does not believe the gospel because Jesus also forewarned saying, “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12).

GOD and FAITH.

“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).

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead” (Romans 1:17, 20).

NEW H E A V E N S and a NEW E A R T H: F A I T H.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).

“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).

“The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 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” (Lamentation 3:24-26).

S P I R I T versus Flesh and Bones.

Jesus says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24).

Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles said: “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:8).

To get to the Paradise of God to be with God forever, our human body must become a quickening Spirit. Only Jesus Christ has been given the power to quicken our mortal bodies (John 3:16-18, 14:6).

The Apostle Paul also said: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50).

“For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:5-11).

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7–8).
