Heaven or hell?

Jesus says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

“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).

Eternal Life or second death?

“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).

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).

This earth is not home.

“For surely there is an end” (Proverbs 23:18). 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). “The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly” (Isaiah 24:19).

“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).

God is “…from everlasting to everlasting…” (Psalm 90:2); therefore, keep looking up to the heavens to get to be with God and Jesus (Revelation 7:17).

The coming of Jesus Christ

The day is coming when Jesus returns on the Last Day for the Day of Judgment. However, he says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is” (Mark 13:33).

“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 24:27).

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42).

“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).

Is Jesus your Savior?

There is a comfort zone in this present time, unfortunately, by too many people who believe that this world is going to get better. But, on the contrary. The signs today are so clear that without any doubt the end of years is approaching (Revelation 19:11-21). This same comfort zone was in the old time in the time of Noah and Lot because Jesus warned, saying:

“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:26-30). “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 24:27).

For those among us who are fearful comfort yourselves by the word of God as spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “Say to them that are of a fearful heart, be strong, and fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you” (Isaiah 35:4).

Wormwood

In 2016 it did not happen; it may not happen either in 2017. But, one coming year it will happen.

“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:7-11).

Jesus says: Therefore, do as Jesus says: “…repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15) because he warns, saying: “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

There is no fear in love.

Without a doubt, there are untold numbers of people right now living in fear of the things that will come upon this earth. So many are so fearful that they have found comfort in the doctrine of the “rapture” believing that should they be alive they will escape the great period of tribulation.

However, Jesus says: “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 a hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:16–19).

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).

“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10).

“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:15-16).
“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).

“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).

Apocalypse

Great Period of Tribulation

The day is coming, and it is soon coming when life as we know it will be changed drastically. In recent years, and continuing to this day, many movies are made about epedemics, pandemics and contagions. Jesus warned that the time will come one day when indeed there will be pestilences.

Jesus says: “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” (Matthew 21:26). “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, [BUT THE END IS NOT YET]” (Matthew 24:6–7).

“All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:8).

Let us also be comforted by these words in the Holy Scriptures.

“The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net” (Micah 7:2).

“The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness” (Isaiah 57:1-2).

FAITH

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

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

“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).

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14). “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17).

Jerusalem has fallen!

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord” (Matthew 23:37-39).

Today, although there continues to be numerous attempts at peace culminating to the end of time, there is never going to be lasting peace in Jerusalem. Many people overlook the fact that in John’s vision of the end of time, the holy city, the great city, Jerusalem is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord Jesus was crucified (Revelation 11:8).

God promised the inhabitants of Jerusalem that the city would remain forever (Jeremiah 17:25) if they adhered to his commandments. However, these commandments as spoken by Jeremiah, just as the everlasting covenant were broken (Isaiah 24:5). The word of God says:

“They have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things” (Jeremiah 16:18). “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth” (Revelation 18:23–24).

“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, ‘It is done.’ And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great” (Revelation 16:17–18, 20–21). I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel” (Revelation 21:2, 11-12).
