Deception, deception and deception.

Yet another man made prediction of when the world will end!

The most recent is that the world will end on April 23, 2018 (see previos POST).

Do not be deceived!

Without a doubt the world is not going to end on April 23, 2018 because key events have not begun to unfold giving rise to the seventh and last world kingdom which will be ruled by the 7th and 8th kings (Revelation 17:9-13).

Brethren, do not be deceived; Jesus comes after the great tribulation on the Last Day at he end of the world. Jesus says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, 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. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).
“[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:)” (Matthew 24:15).

“And [WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20)

“Then let them which be in Judæa flee into the mountains” (Matthew 24:16)

“[FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION], such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:15-16, 21-22).

“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION] of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29-30).

“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 1:7).

The Face Of Christ In The Sky

Is the world going to end on April 23, 2018?

Do not be deceived!

“Numerologist David Meade predicts the world will end on April 23. He says believers will be sent to heaven while nonbelievers will die over the next five months”.

The world is not ending on April 23, 2018!

Jesus is very clear when he says: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36).

“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 2:14-16).

 

Doing the will of God: The Father

Let us examine when 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).

What does Jesus mean by “…doeth the will of my Father…”?

Firstly, when Jesus was here on earth and doing his Father’s business, he was asked by his disciples, “What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?” (John 6:28).

“Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent’” (John 6:29).

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

What does Jesus mean “…find faith on the earth?”

James, the brother of Jesus explained when he asked, “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone” (James 2:14, 17).

Jesus explains in detail what it means to have faith with WORKS
in outlining the events when he comes on the Day of Judgment on the Last Day, saying:

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left” (Matthew 25:31-33).

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
[FOR I WAS AN HUNGRED, AND YE GAVE ME MEAT: I WAS THIRSTY, AND YE GAVE ME DRINK: I WAS A STRANGER, AND YE TOOK ME IN: NAKED, AND YE CLOTHED ME: I WAS SICK, AND YE VISITED ME: I WAS IN PRISON, AND YE CAME UNTO ME]” (Matthew 25:34-36).

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not” (Matthew 25:41-43).

“And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal” (Mathew 25:46).

Jesus Christ in sky with clouds heaven

Kingdom of Heaven:

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).

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

“How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).

“Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

“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).

“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).

Recipients of the Kingdom of Heaven:

“The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all” (Proverbs 22:1-2).

“Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble” (Psalm 41:1).

“Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

Jesus says: “Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24).

“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).

It’s all about Righteousness!

“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7). “The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).

“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).

“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).

“The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever” (Psalm 37:18).

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

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

Just imagine being able to travel at the speed of light!

“There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another” (1 Corinthians 15:40).

“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly” (1 Corinthians 15:47–49).

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

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

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:50-51, 53).

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, says: “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels” (Revelation 3:5). “And I will give him the morning star” (Revelation 2:28).

“For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day” (Luke 17:24).

“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).
Human Being Asking Universe

There is only one way to God: The Father.

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).

Jesus made it very clear when he was here on earth: “All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him” (Matthew 11:27).

“Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake” (John 14:10-11).

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

Fight the good fight of faith to lay hold on Eternal Life:

None or few of us who are healthy, thanks to God in the name of Jesus, and going about our daily lives think about “fighting for our lives.” Mostly, we are concerned about just being able to make a living in this world. Notwithstanding this fact, we should all be very concerned about “fighting for our lives”.

The question that may be asked is, “If we are healthy, why should we be concerned with ‘fighting for our life?’” The answer is simple; the Apostle Paul said: “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).

Paul also reminded us, 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.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked” (Ephesians 6:12-16).

Every day we are alive we must endure, and remind ourselves to do as the Apostle Paul said: “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life” (1 Timothy 6:12).

JESUS is the only Savior:

When a person is sick and the prognosis is questionable whether they will get better, those around that person pray and hope that they make a full recovery. The person lying on their sick bed is only thinking about staying alive; be it consciously or unconsciously, such a person is often said to be “fighting for their life.” All of us in this position would probably “fight for our lives.” The basic human instinct is to live.

Although we are alive today, this life will pass away one day. However, if we want to live, that is, live beyond the end of time: the Last Day, we should be, for lack of a better expression, “fighting for our life.”

There is only one way for us to live beyond the Last Day and this through Jesus Christ, the only Savior who declared, saying: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“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).
