GOD NEVER TALKS TO ME
We have two extremes
in the Body of Christ:
Those who claim to
constantly hear from God.
Those who complain that
He never talks to them.
The first group is
filled with religious manipulators who CLAIM that "God
told them" to "tell you" something, when in fact He DIDN'T
TELL THEM ANYTHING.
They shamelessly use God's
Name IN VAIN to manipulate, deceive and extract money from
They want you to do THEIR
WILL, not God's.
Kristian TV is filled
with these clowns who claim that God has "their ears"
Too bad He doesn't
have THEIR HEARTS.
The second group is
generally sincere. They are
born-again individuals who INTENSELY DESIRE to hear from
God, receive direction from Him, and do His will.
When they hear
charlatans who claim God talks to them all the time, they
often get depressed and think "there's something wrong
with me" because "He never talks to me".
I want to ASSURE YOU that
there is NOTHING wrong with you.
On the contrary: your
yearning for God is the natural result of genuinely being
None of us just "pushes
a button" and hears God.
None of us hears from
He's NOT running His
We hear from Him when
He either wants to reveal something, guide us in a
situation, or when WE SEEK
Him AND ASK for an answer to a specific question.
The rest of the time He's
Repeat: the REST OF THE
TIME, God is SILENT.
must get COMFORTABLE with the fact that sometimes He is
just hangs out with us. By that I mean, we
sense His Presence, and have intimate communion with each
other, but neither one is saying anything in particular.
We just LOVE
and ENJOY each other.
I don't hear from God 24/7.
But I do hear from Him from time to time, and
when He speaks He has PROFOUND IMPACT.
God speaks to us primarily
through His written Word, (the Bible) and through His Holy
That is just ONE reason why
spending time with Him and His Word, both the Incarnate
Word (Jesus) and the Written Word (also Jesus) is SO
IMPORTANT to both our spiritual development and to having
"ears to hear".
Although He can speak
to us in an AUDIBLE voice, He
He can speak to us through
signs, both natural and supernatural, but those instances
He sometimes speaks through
dreams and visions, but again these instances are not the
Most dreams come from
the subconscious, not from God.
The way He usually
speaks is by either GENTLY
AND INSTANTLY SUPERIMPOSING A THOUGHT OR IDEA IN OUR
MINDS, or A CLEAR IMPRESSION IN OUR GUT.
God's Spirit speaks
TO OUR SPIRIT, which is located in the stomach area.
And here's where 95%
of Christendom has missed it badly:
We NEVER pay ANY attention
to His inner Voice in our born-again spirits.
In fact 99% of
Christians, including pastors and ministers, DO
NOT EVEN KNOW where the spirit is located.
Not to mention that
they think that spirit and
soul are THE SAME THING.
universities and seminaries have focused exclusively on
HEAD KNOWLEDGE, and FAILED MISERABLY in teaching the
higher Wisdom that is found only in the Spirit.
Needless to say that if you
NEVER seek the Holy Spirit inside yourself, if you
COMPLETELY IGNORE His Presence, and show NO DESIRE
WHATSOEVER to communicate with Him, you won't be
bothered by Him and YOU'LL
NEVER HEAR His Voice.
God's Word is
If we REALLY want to
hear from God we CANNOT take
His Word or His HOLY Spirit for granted.
We must LOVINGLY
DEDICATE TIME TO FOCUS ON THEM, and "LISTEN" to them.
And not as some sort
of "religious duty", but
because we ACTUALLY WANT IT.
find it ENJOYABLE.
In fact, this
must become "a way of life" to all of us.
Learning how to
"hear" and discern the Spirit's impressions TAKES SOME
PRACTICE, PATIENCE, AND A BIT OF "TRIAL AND ERROR".
than anything else, IT TAKES AWARENESS.
If you're NOT EVEN
CONSCIOUSLY AWARE of His Spirit within yourself - which
means you're TOTALLY IGNORING HIM - and you're not seeking
Him, WHY ON EARTH WOULD HE TALK TO YOU?
Those who REALLY WANT
TO hear His Voice will keep
seeking Jesus in their inner being, until they gain
Jesus PROMISED that
those who ask WILL RECEIVE and those who seek WILL FIND.

JUPITER AND VENUS
(tomorrow) June 30 there will be a
rare conjunction between Jupiter and Venus that has not
been seen in 2,000 years.
These two planets
will come so close to each
other that they will appear to be ONE giant star.
This once in a
lifetime event should be visible from the U.S., in the
Western portion of the sky, at around 8:45 P.M.
Before you get all
excited, this has nothing to
do (at least NOT DIRECTLY) with the tribulation, the
Rapture, or any other major prophetic event.
The Rapture will not
happen in 2015: not in June, not in July, not on September
23, or at any other time during this Gregorian year.
If you want to know the
BIBLICAL reasons, please click on "2015 Prophecy
Update", top left.
What makes this event
noteworthy, besides its already mentioned rarity, is that many
astronomers believe that a similar conjunction between
these two planets in our solar system is what caused the
"special Star" effect that the Wise Men saw and understood
to signify that the Messiah, the King of the Jews, had
been born (Matthew 2:2).
Also, ITS TIMING is
Can it be mere
"coincidence" that this is
all happening SO CLOSE to the tribulation-Rapture?
Keeping in mind that
no two conjunctions are EXACTLY alike, it
will be exciting to see HOW IT LOOKS from the earth when
the King planet Jupiter is joined to the Queen planet
Romans and other
pagan cultures worshiped Jupiter as Supreme Deity.
They also worshiped
Venus as goddess of love.
God forbid that I
should push paganism, or worship of the sun, moon or
stars, however it was God
who placed the stars in the sky, who ascribed certain
meanings to them, who put them in the heavens as "signs"
of special times and seasons, and who established their
orbits before the foundation of the earth (Genesis
1:14; Job 38:31).
We are NOT to
worship them, but we ARE to
Luke 21:25 says that
prior to the appearing of Jesus, there
will "SIGNS in the sun, moon, AND STARS and upon the
earth distress of nations with perplexity".
We have certainly seen,
QUITE RECENTLY, "SIGNS" in the sun and moon in the
form of A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on God's New Year, flanked
by TWO TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSES, before and after, that
just happened to coincide with the Feasts of Passover and
Sukkot (the last of those 4 lunar eclipses will take
place on Monday, September 28, 2015).
Now we're about to see A
SIGN "in the stars".
And distress of
nations with perplexity (NO WAY OUT, not knowing what to
do or which way to turn) is a spot-on description of what
is going on in this messed up world.
I reiterate that this
conjunction has NO DIRECT
CONNECTION with the tribulation or the Rapture.
And it may - OR MAY
NOT - live up to our expectations.
Be prepared, just in
case IT DOES NOT turn out to be as spectacular as it's
Our MAIN FOCUS should ALWAYS
BE JESUS. He is THE SIGN we should all seek with all
our hearts and every fiber of our beings (Matthew 24:30).
However, if God
Himself ordered those heavenly signs, then we need to
watch, pay attention, and NOT ignore them.
Could they be announcing -
just like they announced Jesus' human birth two
millenniums ago - that the Body of Christ WILL SOON BE
BIRTHED INTO THE HEAVENLY DIMENSION (raptured)?
That the King and His
Bride (the Church) are soon to be reunited?
Is this God's way of
announcing the upcoming Royal Marriage between the
Lamb and His glorified Bride?
I don't know about
you but, Lord willing, I'll be watching the sky with
interest tomorrow night.

SHUT UP, FRANCIS !
It's obvious that
Jorge Bergoglio a/k/a Pope Francis enjoys the limelight.
IN THE PAST WEEK
ALONE he has weighed in on the environment, the Holocaust,
the economy and politics.
He was extremely
opinionated on these topics.
However, when it came
to the Shroud of Turin, the very cloth that wrapped the
Body of Jesus as He laid in the tomb, that shows his human
Image, and is stained with
His most precious, sinless Blood, Bergoglio bailed.
He refused to say
whether the cloth is authentic or not.
Let me help Chicken
Jorge out just a bit: it
MOST CERTAINLY IS authentic.
Francis -- as he now
likes to be called -- seems
to have opinions about EVERYTHING, except Jesus and the
true Christian faith.
I knew that the
INVENTED title of "Pope" made someone instantly and
magically "infallible" in matters of doctrine, BUT
I DIDN'T KNOW that it also made him an expert
environmentalist, economist, and politician.
Each time Bergoglio
opens his mouth he makes an
even bigger fool of himself.
As they say in his
native Argentina: ¡pero
He criticized the
nations involved in WWII saying they should have bombarded
and destroyed the railroads that led to the crematoriums -
and THAT IS a valid argument. But he
conveniently failed to mention how HIS OWN RELIGION -which
could have used its considerable influence to help the
Jews - for the most part turned a blind eye and deaf ear
to their plight and CHOSE TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY.
Talk about the pot

Or the Book of Isaiah,
which promises the same things (Isaiah 65:17,25).
Or the Apostle Peter who

MOTHER OF HARLOTS - PART TWO
teaching began to infiltrate the true, universal Church
almost as soon as it was born, it still -- for the most
part -- remained true to the basic tenets of the Christian
It's when our faith became
INSTITUTIONALIZED, and turned into the State religion of
Rome, which eventually degenerated into Roman Catholicism,
that paganism overtook the Church, and THE
MOST ESSENTIAL DOCTRINE, which is that of Salvation
through the perfect Work of Redemption of Jesus Christ,
and HIS MERITS - NOT through OUR OWN merits -- was TOTALLY
It's when ALL SORTS
OF ABOMINATIONS were introduced in the name of "apostolic
tradition" and "apostolic succession".
That's when JESUS
became "insufficient" to save: Yes, He died for our sins, BUT...
"THAT'S NOT ENOUGH".
Never mind that THE
BIBLE says time and again that He REMOVED ALL SIN FOR ALL
TIME - as far as the east is from the west - RELIGION
knows more than God, and RELIGION SAYS we have to "HELP
Him" save us, or we're lost (Psalm 103:12; John 1:29;
2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Hebrews 9:12,26; 10:14; 1 John
That's when OUR OWN WORKS
became "part of" salvation, even though the New
Testament says - OVER 50
TIMES - that
Salvation is by Christ ONLY, by Grace ONLY, through FAITH
3:16; Romans 3:20; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16; 5:4;
That's when the Book
of James WAS DOCTORED - yes, I said "DOCTORED" - BY
ORGANIZED RELIGION with
capricious mistranslations and misplaced punctuation marks
to MAKE IT APPEAR as though James advocated works to be
part of soul salvation.
mischief went right over the heads of subsequent
Protestant reformers and Bible translators, and causes
confusion, strife and division TO THIS VERY DAY.
It's when Purgatory was
INVENTED, as a means of SCARING people with TORMENT
for their sinful acts, which
could be avoided (of course) - NOT BY REPENTING, RECEIVING
CHRIST INTO ONE'S HEART and being born again - BUT
BY BUYING special "indulgences" from CORRUPT "Popes".
It's when salvation could be
BOUGHT AND SOLD for gold and silver, when Peter
unequivocally said that GOLD AND SILVER can't redeem us
but ONLY the precious, sinless Blood of our God and Savior
Jesus the Christ (1 Peter 1:18-19).
"veneration" of Mary and "saints" was introduced to
appease the populace and
accommodate their pagan deities:
If we can no longer
worship the goddess of love as Venus, we'll worship her as
If we can no longer
openly worship Apollo, we'll worship him as Jesus.
We'll worship them ON
THE SAME DAY, Sun Day -- (named after the Sun god Apollo)
-- and make worship on Sun Day MANDATORY.
(The Bible teaches
that Jesus should be worshiped EVERY
SINGLE DAY - without exception! Psalm 20:5; 90:14;
113.3; 118:24; Malachi 1:11).
We'll even make them
share THE SAME BIRTHDAY!
It's when the
firstborn HARLOT DAUGHTER appropriated the EXCLUSIVE right
to "interpret" and translate Scripture.
It's when it BANNED - under
penalty of death, excommunication, or both - the reading
of God's Word, to COVER UP its fornication and
deviation from God's Word of Truth.
It's when "holy wars"
(Crusades) were invented based on greed and self-serving
dogma, in DIRECT CONTRADICTION of Christ's teachings,
and (supposedly) in the Name of Him who taught TO TURN THE
OTHER CHEEK, and TO LOVE -
EVEN OUR ENEMIES!!! (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27)
It's when UNSPEAKABLE
ATROCITIES, crimes, torture, greed, lust for power, secret
rituals, and sexual immorality became
THE NORM, rather than the exception.
Despite all of the
above, there always remained
a faithful remnant within the first harlot daughter that
really knew and worshiped Jesus - not Apollo - and there
still remains a faithful remnant.
17 centuries later,
we have COUNTLESS OTHER DAUGHTERS OF THE GREAT WHORE who
hypocritically criticize their oldest sister Roman
Catholicism, yet engage in THE SAME ABOMINATIONS and, like
her, claim to have THE MONOPOLY ON TRUE CHRISTIAN
And the list keeps
The GREAT HARLOT is
still committing spiritual fornication, and still spawning
off HARLOT DAUGHTERS.
They just call THE VERY SAME
abominations BY DIFFERENT NAMES.
It's "THE SAME DOG", just
wearing A DIFFERENT COLLAR.
It would TAKE A WHOLE
BOOK to list them ALL, but here
are SOME of her equally idolatrous and fornicating
Church of Christ -
born in 1830, as the offspring of Alexander Campbell, its
inventor, and the Great Whore.
Like its oldest
sister, it teaches baptismal regeneration and that works
play a role in salvation.
Latter Day Saints (Mormons)
- born in 1830, and invented by son of Satan Joseph Smith:
This HELLISH cult,
which hypocritically accuses Roman Catholicism of
"changing the Bible", has added not one, not two, but
THREE "books" to the sacred text, claiming they're
inspired, and which often FLAT OUT CONTRADICT the Bible.
They're the ones WHO CHANGED
rail against "papal infallibility", while
ELEVATING THE DISTORTED TEACHINGS of Joseph Smith to the
level of Scripture, thus MAKING HIM "infallible".
Disciples of Christ -
the fruit of a fornicating threesome between Thomas
Campbell, his son Alexander Campbell, and the Great Whore
Like its two older
siblings, it teaches baptismal regeneration and that works
play a role in salvation
Seventh Day Adventists -
born in 1863 as the result of an orgy in which Joseph
Bates, William Miller and Ellen White engaged in religious
intercourse with the Whore and each other.
They criticize Roman
Catholics for idolizing Mary, when THEY idolize Ellen
They condemn "papal
infallibility" when they
regard the heretical teachings of their goddess White as
Like their older
sister, they teach salvation
through works, and, like Catholics did with Sun Day,
they single out Saturday as "day or worship" TO
THE EXCLUSION OF any other day.
Christian Science -
the result of lesbian relationship between the Whore and
Mary Bakker Eddy in 1866.
This cult regards
Eddy to be as "infallible"
as the Pope is to Catholics.
It considers Eddy's
book Science and Health God-inspired,
ERROR-FREE, and TRUER THAN the Bible.
Like Roman Catholicism's
many "traditions" which OVERRIDE and CONTRADICT the Bible,
Eddy's teachings TAKE PRECEDENCE over Scripture, and
DISMISS entire portions of God's Word which are not to
Jehovah's Witnesses -
the "love child" of the Whore and Charles Taze Russell.
It's a cult, invented 145 years ago, that will lead its
deceived followers straight to hell.
Like its harlot

monopoly on truth.
Like its harlot
mother it has tampered with
Scripture, offering its own "Watchtower" PERVERSION of the

This abomination was sired in 1940's (68 years ago) by
Herbert W. Armstrong engaging in adulterous intercourse
with the Great Whore.
Like its older
sister, it teaches salvation
through works, and regards the teachings of Armstrong as
"infallible" as Roman Catholics regard the dictates of
All the aforementioned
"harlot daughters" have ONE
thing in common:
perceive Jesus' PERFECT WORK OF REDEMPTION as
"insufficient" to save.
When God COMMANDS His
people to "COME OUT OF HER" (Revelation
18:4), He is not only referring to the Great Whore (Rome),
or to its first born daughter Roman Catholicism, but
to ITS OTHER HARLOT DAUGHTERS as well.
However, I would be
remiss if I didn't include ONE
FINAL dishonorable mention:
They criticize their
older sister for selling "indulgences", but
THEY SELL God's favor through their abominable "GIVE IN
ORDER TO GET" teaching (Acts 8:20).
They criticize their
older sister for "idolizing" Mary, and praying to the
saints, WHEN THEY IDOLIZE
religious charlatans who SELL THEM fake "miracles", FAKE
"healings", and FAKE "prophecy".
Just like the RCC
heaped up enormous wealth thru TERRORIZING ignorant souls
with a non-existent "Purgatory", these
religious traffickers heap treasure for themselves by
INTIMIDATING stupid Christians with the lie that UNLESS
they give 10% of their incomes to lying religious
hierarchy God will curse them.
Just like their older
sister THEY'RE STEEPED IN
GREED AND CARNAL LUSTS.
Just like their older
sister erected all kinds of religious buildings to exalt
itself, so they build
themselves religious monuments and fortresses -- which
they FALSELY call "churches"-- to exalt THEMSELVES.
Just like their older
brother Judas SOLD OUT his Master for 30 pieces of silver,
and just like their older sister trafficked in all sorts
of religious paraphernalia, so
they SELL Jesus in the form of worthless, deceiving books,
CDs, DVDs, T-shirts, and trinkets (Revelation
Just like their older
sister divided Christendom forever by excommunicating
Luther, they effectively
"excommunicate" anyone who calls into question their
unchristian antics and false doctrines.
OLD HARLOT has produced MANY HARLOT DAUGHTERS.
And they're NOT ONLY
"that group" over there. Some
of her daughters are on your TV screen, standing behind
the pulpit, and sitting on the next pew.

MOTHER OF HARLOTS
The Bible speaks of
One is the
historical city in modern Iraq, capital of the ancient
Babylonian Empire, and presently in ruins (Ezra 5:12;
Jeremiah 25:11-12; 1 Peter 5:13).
The other is Mystery
(metaphoric) Babylon, mentioned exclusively in the Book of
Revelation, as ANOTHER INFAMOUS CITY destined for
destruction (Revelation 17:5).
God calls the latter
"THE GREAT HARLOT" (Revelation 17:1).
He also calls her "THE
MOTHER of HARLOTS and ABOMINATIONS of the earth"
unmistakably reveals this GREAT HARLOT, called Mystery
Babylon, to be Rome.
understandable that Rome
should be compared to, and called by, the allegorical name
"Mystery Babylon the Great":
The parallels between
ancient Babylon and Rome are noteworthy:
1. Both were cradles
of paganism and Satan worship.
2. Both contained temples to
3. Both possessed
great, intimidating weapons and armies.
4. Both gave
birth to empires.
5. Both were
the capitals of their respective empires.
6. Both took
Jews into captivity.
7. Both destroyed
God's temple in Jerusalem.
8. Both are
destroyed by God, never to rise again.
Protestants are quick
to jump on this passage and call the Roman Catholic
religion "THE GREAT WHORE"...
What escapes most
expositors, however, is that
Rome is NOT MERELY "THE GREAT WHORE", but that she is
MOTHER OF ALL RELIGIOUS WHORES.
If Rome is "THE
MOTHER", that means that
Rome has DAUGHTERS!!!
If Rome is the GREAT
HARLOT, and also THE MOTHER OF ALL HARLOTS, that
means SHE'S GOT HARLOT DAUGHTERS!!!
Where are HER
Without doubt, her
FIRST-BORN daughter is known to us as the Roman Catholic
Church, born in the 4th century A.D.
is NOT the mother of ONLY ONE harlot, but of ALL HARLOTS (plural,

OTHER DAUGHTERS, besides the RCC.
Can we identify her
OTHER harlot daughters?
Members of the same human
family tend to SHARE CERTAIN COMMON TRAITS. The same holds
true in RELIGIOUS families.
If we analyze the
traits in Rome's firstborn daughter, we
can see the same religious characteristics manifested in
her OTHER daughters.
WHO ARE Rome's OTHER
Come back tomorrow
and I'll tell you.
THURSDAY, JUNE 25,
A lady once wrote CLAIMING
she had "studied the Bible" and found "MANY scriptures" in
the Old Testament that state that Mystery Babylon is none
other than the United States of America.
She also CLAIMED the
Holy Spirit had revealed this to her.
She was insisting that I
change my teaching, and warn people of the judgments that
are coming on the U.S.
I told Sally (not her
real name) that I did not doubt for a moment that God
would judge the United States, TOGETHER WITH THE REST OF
THE WORLD, after the Rapture.
However, I could NOT
teach such lie ABOUT THE U.S. being Babylon because
IT ISN'T IN THE BIBLE.
Moreover, that it's
IMPOSSIBLE to have found "Mystery Babylon" in the Old
Testament, since that term
is used ONLY in the Book of Revelation, which is NEW
Then I challenged
Sally to provide JUST ONE SCRIPTURE that says Babylon is
I didn't ask for 10
scriptures, didn't ask for three, NOT EVEN TWO (which is
the biblical standard for human witnesses, Deuteronomy
19:15)... I didn't ask for a theological dissertation:
JUST ONE SCRIPTURE.
After all, she
CLAIMED to have found "MANY" that supported her belief.
So, I was being more than reasonable in asking her to
Her answer was: she
couldn't think of any right off the bat, but she'd get
back to me.
Indeed, Sally did get
back to me about three days later WITH
A SINGLE VERSE OF SCRIPTURE, Isaiah 13:19.
Only problem was, she
quoted it OUT OF CONTEXT, since
there is NOTHING in that verse that mentions the United
America HAS NEVER
BEEN (thank God) "the beauty of the Chaldeans'
excellency", as that verse says.
Arabians HAVE NEVER
([thank God) PITCHED THEIR TENTS, or tended their flocks
in this nation, as that verse also says.
NO WAY that Isaiah 13:19 could be referring to the U.S.A.
The "enemy from the
north" mentioned in that chapter was ancient Persia
(modern Iran, which lies north of Babylon in Iraq) and
which conquered Babylon, exactly as Isaiah prophesied.
(For those who
flunked geography, the ONLY country to our "north" is
Canada, which hardly qualifies as our "enemy").
That prophecy has already
been fulfilled in precise detail, in ancient Babylon,
which fell to the Persians in 539 B.C., was eventually
destroyed, and it's never been inhabited since.
The United States ISN'T
MENTIONED ANYWHERE, or even IMPLIED.
It took me EXACTLY
30 SECONDS to destroy Sally's theory.
She then referred me
to a specific author of a specific book, SOLD on a
specific website, all of which shall remain nameless.
To which I replied
that I would consider an
argument BASED ON THE BIBLE and taken IN CONTEXT, but that
I DO NOT WASTE MY PRECIOUS TIME reading FICTION.
is MAN-INVENTED IS FICTION.
And those who convey
Truth - as in BIBLICAL Truth - DON'T

As it turned out, Sally
DIDN'T really KNOW squat about the Bible, let alone about
She HADN'T found ANY
scriptures that supported her erroneous theory: SHE WAS
MERELY PARROTING what she had READ from an ALLEGED
"expert", who knows as much about Bible prophecy as she
Talk about THE BLIND
leading the blind!
The Holy Spirit HADN'T
REVEALED ANYTHING to her -- AS SHE FALSELY CLAIMED --
since He will NEVER contradict His Own Word.
Sally had merely
ALLOWED HERSELF to be misled by one of the many
unscrupulous prophecy traffickers that abound.
She happened to LIKE THE LIE
he put forth. She
WANTED TO believe it and, therefore, she BOUGHT IT, both
figuratively and LITERALLY.
Then she had the
nerve to attribute that
sinful, mortal author's lies TO THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!
I'm not trying to
"pick" on the pitiful, deceived woman who wrote that
email, but she happens to be A
CLASSIC EXAMPLE of how prophecy myths are
concocted and disseminated today.
It's NO COINCIDENCE
that God issued a DIRE WARNING against "ADDING" or
"subtracting" from His Holy Word in the most often-read
PROPHETIC book of the Bible, the Book of Revelation
All "Sallies" out there
would do well to read - and MEDITATE - that Scripture,
BEFORE THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTHS AND BLAB IRRESPONSIBLY about
something they know NOTHING about.
I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO
TELL YOU HOW MANY "SALLIES" (of both genders) HAVE WRITTEN
ME, MAKING ESSENTIALLY THE SAME FALSE CLAIM about the U.S.
or New York City (depending on which "expert" you believe)
being either the biblical Babylon or Mystery Babylon.
There ISN'T a SINGLE VERSE
in the ENTIRE Bible which teaches that.
It's pure, man-made B.S.
All these "Sallies"
remind me of the one in the classic blues song "Mustang
As the lyrics say,
they need to "put their feet
flat on the ground", CAUSE THEY'VE BEEN TAKEN FOR A RIDE.

again: God said THE ANCIENT CITY of Babylon would be
destroyed and never again rebuilt or inhabited. But
He never said that about its infamous Tower.
Josephus, the Tower of Babel
was originally built by Nimrod.
All that is left of
the Tower, mentioned in Genesis chapter 11, IS
THE BASE OR PLATFORM ON WHICH IT WAS ERECTED.
It is known by the
Sumerian name Etemenanki, meaning "temple OF
THE FOUNDATION (BASE) of heaven and earth".
According to the
Assyrian Sennacherib, he destroyed what was left of it in
the 7th century (689 B.C.).
to have rebuilt it in the 6th century.
Whether these claims
are true or just political propaganda, is hard to say, as
they are found in extra-biblical literature.
The Tower of Babel
symbolizes the first popular
revolt against (anti) God, led by the Anti-God Nimrod.
It's also THE
FIRST PLACE ON EARTH OPENLY DEDICATED TO SATAN WORSHIP.
The Tower was erected
in honor of the Babylonian god Marduk, who is none other
than Satan, depicted as A SERPENT WITH TWO HORNS.
Upon entering Babylon
in 323 B.C., Alexander the Great made elaborate plans to
rebuild the Tower.
Those plans were
truncated by his premature death at the age of 33.
This is significant
he emerges from the abyss, as the Antichrist(Revelation
17:8), he will carry out his
plan to rebuild the idolatrous Tower.
He will also reinstate
OPEN SATAN WORSHIP (Daniel 11:38-39; Revelation 13:4).
Just like God says
that Babylon will never again be a city, He
says that the Tower of Babel WILL BE REBUILT, albeit
briefly, as a monument to evil.
TUESDAY, JUNE 23,
In 2 Corinthians
12:7-10 the apostle Paul talks about having
"a thorn in the flesh", which he asked God to remove.
Ask religious minds
what that thorn was, and you get some of the weirdest
However, the most
frequent one is that God had afflicted Paul with some sort
of physical sickness, and that God refused to take it
It's often theorized,
based on Galatians 4:15 and 6:11, that
that sickness was some problem with Paul's eyes that
affected his vision.
That, in turn, is
supposed to show that "God doesn't heal everyone".
There's no record
anywhere that God put any sickness on Paul.
God has NO sickness to give
God is a healer. He healed
people back then and He still heals people today, since He
Does He heal
In John 5:1-11 we
have Jesus going to the pool of Bethesda where a lot of
sick people were gathered waiting for the angel Raphael to
stir the water. Jesus didn't
heal ALL of them. He healed ONE person, who'd been invalid
Jesus, in his human
form, having divested Himself of His glory, could do
nothing of Himself, only what He saw the Father do (John
God knows every mind
and every heart.
How exactly the
Father determines who gets healed and who doesn't, WE ARE
No theologian knows,
no minister knows, you don't
know, and I don't know.
We know Grace and
faith (trust) play a significant part but, since faith is
A GIFT of God, and the fruit of the Spirit, how
does God dispense such faith?
No one this side of
heaven knows the EXACT
dynamics involved in the supernatural healing process.
The Bible tells us
that God did blind Paul TEMPORARILY on the way to Damascus
(Acts 9:8,9), but we're also
told that when Ananias prayed for him his eyesight
returned (Acts 9:17,18).
While it's true that
Paul seems to indicate a vision problem, there's
no record anywhere that it was caused by God.
The probable reason
for his vision problems was the
deplorable "living condition" (if you can even call
it that) to which he was
subjected in Roman prison.
Paul had been
imprisoned more than once (Acts 16:16-28), including at
the infamous Mamertine dungeon in Rome.
There were no
windows, hence NO VENTILATION, and NO LIGHT.
It was a dark, damp,
unsanitary, smelly, rodent infested, urine and feces
His vision problems
are likely to be the result of being held there, IN TOTAL
DARKNESS AND LACK OF HYGIENE, not
because God would afflict his own son and faithful
was Paul's thorn?
According to 2
Corinthians 12:7 it wasn't any illness, but AN
ANGEL OF SATAN.
Paul said this angel
(messenger) of Satan was assigned to "buffet him", lest he
become conceited due to the tremendous revelations he'd
The Greek word kolaphizo means to
strike with the fist or knuckles (punch someone).
Evidently, Satan had
assigned one of his angels to continually harass Paul and
make his life miserable.
That seems to be his
M.O. where people of God are concerned.
asked God's permission to afflict Job and then brought
all manner of suffering and calamities on him (Job 1:9-18;
In Luke 22:31 we
read how he personally asked
for Peter, Jesus' designated leader of the Early Church,
so he could "sift him as wheat".
So this is
nothing new, as far as the devil is concerned.
Paul asked God to
take the angel of Satan away and, contrary
to what religion teaches, God DIDN'T DENY the request.
He merely said His
GRACE "IS SUFFICIENT" to handle the problem.
If God's Grace is
sufficient to SAVE US FROM SIN, surely
it's sufficient to deliver us from a fallen angel (Romans
Paul clearly and
UNDISPUTEDLY says the thorn was "a
messenger (angel) of Satan", and NOT some illness.
Why waste time and
energy seeking mortal opinions, when
you can find the REAL answers IN THE BIBLE?

WHERE'S SATAN TODAY?
Most people have
heard the traditional teaching that Satan "was cast out of
heaven" when he rebelled against God.
Unlike God, Satan ISN'T
For all the
"rebuking", "binding", "get thee behind me" and "send you
to the pit of hell" that go on, few Christians could tell
you WHERE Satan is today.
He won't be sent to
the abyss until approximately 4 years from now.
Therefore, Satan is
not in hell, so "sending him" there is a waste of time,
energy and breath.
If he got cast out of
heaven, WHERE IS HE?
The answer will
surprise many of you:
IN THE HEAVENLY REALM.
That's NOT what
I was taught in Sunday school !!!
I know. Isn't THAT
Isn't it sad that 95%
of "Sunday schools" are spiritual kindergarten FOR ADULTS?
Sunday school is
mostly THE IGNORANT LEADING THE
Most Sunday School
Quarterlies aren't worth the paper they're printed on.
They're spiritual illiteracy all the way.
Being able to name
the 7 deacons in the Book of Acts won't help you in the
least when a loved one gets sick, when you're facing some
trial, when you have to answer for your faith, or when you
try to win someone to Christ.
Isaiah 14:12-15 says
that Lucifer "fell from heaven" because of his rebellion
against God. That's why he
was ON EARTH when he tempted Eve.
However, the Bible is
also clear that, after he
fell, HE REGAINED ACCESS TO HEAVEN THROUGH MAN'S FALL.
Man was created and
given DOMINION OVER the earth, but his authority went all
the way up to JUST BELOW the Throne of the Almighty.
Psalm 8:5 clearly
says that God made man "a
little lower" than Himself.
The King James Bible
reads "a little lower than the angels" but the Hebrew word
is not malakim (angels) but ELOHIM, which
When Adam (female and
male) GAVE IN TO Satan's TEMPTATION, man's
authority over the earth and much of the heavenly realm
was transferred to Satan.
Thus Satan regained
access to heaven as clearly shown in the Book of Job 1:6-7
where, after man's fall,
SATAN SHOWS UP IN HEAVEN ONCE AGAIN among the "sons of
Matter of fact, Satan sort
of rubbed this fact in Jesus' face when he tempted Him:
"The devil led Him up
to a high mountain and showed Him in an instant all the
kingdoms of the world. And he
said to Him, "I will give you ALL THEIR AUTHORITY AND
SPLENDOR, FOR IT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME, AND I CAN GIVE IT
TO ANYONE I WANT TO" (Luke 4:5-6).
That's also why the
Book of Hebrews plainly tells us THAT HEAVENLY
THINGS HAD TO be PURIFIED with NO LESS THAN THE BLOOD OF
LAST ADAM, our Lord Jesus Christ:
WAS therefore NECESSARY that the patterns of things in
the heavens SHOULD BE PURIFIED with these (animal blood); but
THE HEAVENLY THINGS THEMSELVES with better sacrifices than
these" (with the Blood of God Himself, Hebrews 9:23).
CONTAMINATED THE ENTIRE
REALM over which man had dominion.
EVERYTHING below the Throne of God.
The fact that Satan,
through man's sin, sneaked back into heaven is clearly
expressed, again, in Ephesians 6:12:
"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 HEAVENLY PLACES".
And, again, in
"And there was WAR
IN HEAVEN: Michael and
his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon
fought and his angels, and prevailed not; NEITHER
WAS THEIR PLACE FOUND IN HEAVEN ANY MORE.
And the great dragon WAS
CAST OUT, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
who deceives the whole world: HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE
EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM".
These verses clearly
show THAT SATAN WILL BE CAST
OUT OF HEAVEN AGAIN, this time FOR GOOD.
It's when he's thrown
out of heaven and down to the earth FOR
THE FINAL time that he stands on the seashore and is
allowed to bring his Antichrist up and out of the
bottomless pit (Revelation 13:1; 17:8).
The creep knows, at
that point, that "his time
is short" (Revelation 12:12).
Three and a half
years, to be exact.
So Satan is
lurking around the atmosphere, seeking whom he may devour --
AND IF WORLD EVENTS ARE ANY INDICATION -- HE'S
QUITE BUSY -- UNTIL MICHAEL THROWS HIM OUT.
When he's cast down
to earth for the final time, he'll
go into overdrive, viciously persecuting Israel, and
anyone that rejects the worship of him and his Antichrist.
Revelation 12:1-11, Michael
WILL throw Satan and his angels OUT and down to earth,
when the glorified Church appears in heaven.
3½ years later, he'll
be sent to the abyss for A THOUSAND YEARS (Revelation
A thousand years
later, he'll be sent to the
lake of fire, where he belongs -- for ALL ETERNITY (Revelation
20:10; Matthew 25:41).
Aren't you glad that
God predetermined THE END since THE BEGINNING ?
SUNDAY, JUNE 21, 2015
"If you then, being
evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, HOW
MUCH MORE shall your Father who is in heaven GIVE GOOD
THINGS TO THEM THAT ASK HIM?" (Matthew 7:11)
"If you then, being
evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: HOW
MUCH MORE shall your heavenly Father GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT
to them that ask Him?" (Luke 11:13)
"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
ANYTHING ELSE, can SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, which
is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:38-39).
Religion has always
presented God as an angry, draconian tyrant, just waiting
for us to make the tiniest mistake, so He can whack the
living daylights out of us.
A mean judge, ever
vigilant of our slightest flaw so He can heap condemnation
on our heads.
That's how PAGAN
RELIGION HAS ALWAYS presented God. Sadly,
that's how many forms of Christianism present God today.
Religion is wrong.
Religion is probably
the most powerful and devious tool that Satan has at his
THAT, however, is NOT the
way that JESUS portrayed God the Father.
He presented Him as
a loving, forgiving, WELCOMING Father who delights in
blessing His children, and making us heirs in His Kingdom (Luke
Nowhere is this more
clearly shown than in the parable of the prodigal (Luke
Jesus said, that a
certain man had two sons:
The younger asked
for his inheritance WHILE HIS FATHER WAS STILL LIVING,
then went away and WASTED IT in "riotous living".
Then the economy
tanked. And he became poor and hungry.
He went from riches to rags,
In order to survive,
HE SOLD HIMSELF AS A SLAVE and his master sent him to feed
swine. Even so, he was starving.
Then it "dawned on
him": How many HIRED SERVANTS OF MY FATHER'S HAVE BREAD
ENOUGH AND TO SPARE, and I perish with hunger!
I will go to my
father and say to him: Father, I HAVE SINNED AGAINST
HEAVEN, AND AGAINST YOU.
I AM NO MORE WORTHY TO BE
CALLED YOUR SON: MAKE ME AS ONE OF YOUR HIRED SERVANTS.
When he was yet far
from home, his father saw
him at a distance, AND HAD COMPASSION, AND RAN, AND FELL
ON HIS NECK, AND KISSED HIM.
And the son said unto
him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your
sight, and am no more worthy to be called your son.
Had this been an
earthly father, he would have probably said:
"I told you so. I'm
glad you learned your lesson".
But his Father, WOULD NOT
EVEN HEAR of His son putting himself down. He didn't even
care that His son was dirty and smelly from hanging around
hogs -- and before the son could finish his "repentance
speech", said to his servants:
THE BEST ROBE, AND PUT IT ON HIM; AND PUT A RING ON HIS
HAND, AND SANDALS ON HIS FEET:

fatted calf, and let us eat, have
a Feast and celebrate:

wandered away from your Father?
Have you SQUANDERED
YOUR SPIRITUAL INHERITANCE on "riotous living"?

to your senses and COME BACK HOME to your Father who LOVES

UNLIKE ANY OTHER.

THE ZODIAC - PART TWO
The first thing that
Satan corrupted in the Zodiac is
the order of the signs: he would have us believe they
start with Aries and end with Pisces.
BEGIN WITH Virgo and END IN Leo.
Let's see how that
matches up with the unfolding of God's plan of redemption:
after man sinned, God promised that the Seed OF THE WOMAN
would crush the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:16).
Women, however, have
no "seed". This is a clear
reference to the supernatural VIRGIN BIRTH of Christ, as
specifically foretold in Isaiah 7:14.
Virgo is the first
sign because it was the
birth of Jesus, Immanuel, God with us, that set God's plan
of redemption in motion.
Libra - is
a set of unbalanced scales. Because
of sin, man "fell short" of God's glory. He'd been weighed
in the balances and "found wanting". He just didn't
"measure up" (Romans 3:23).
Scorpio - represents
death. Man's sin brought the
sting of death upon mankind (1 Corinthians 15:55-57;
It also represents
Satan's reign of death until Life Himself showed up (Luke
Archer (Psalm 45:5-6) is
aiming His arrow right at the Scorpion (Satan).
He is a Centaur. A
mythological character, with a DUAL NATURE, half-man and
half-horse. He represents
Christ's dual nature: 100% man and 100% God.
Jesus is the Solution
to the sin/death problem. Only
the God-Man could reconcile man to God... in Himself (2
Only the God-Man
(Jesus) could inflict a
mortal wound on the enemy by crushing his head (Genesis
Capricorn - Depicts
Jesus as THE GOAT, offered
to Yahweh as SIN OFFERING, who died in our place, and paid
the penalty for our sins (Leviticus 16:7-16).
Aquarius - refers
to the Holy Spirit, whose LIVING WATER will flow from our
bellies and into the world, after we receive Christ (John
It also represents
God's Word being POURED OUT (preached, SPREAD) THROUGHOUT
THE WORLD (Ephesians 5:26).
gives this universal invitation: "He
who is THIRSTY, COME. AND WHOSOEVER WILL, LET HIM TAKE THE
WATER OF LIFE FREELY".
Pisces - THE
FISH, IS CLEARLY A SYMBOL OF THE CHURCH. The
fish has been used as a symbol of Christianity since the
first century A.D.
When we preach the
Gospel, we become "FISHERS OF MEN" (Mark 1:15-17). There
are still many "fish" that need to be brought into His
Aries - The
Ram/Lamb, represents the
Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world (John
1:29; Revelation 5:6).
It's also symbol of the
everlasting covenant God made with Abraham (Genesis
22:13). It's thru this
covenant that we are redeemed.
This is the covenant
that Jesus confirmed with His Precious Blood (Daniel 9:27;
Galatians 3:16, 17), when He died in our stead.
In honor of that ETERNAL
covenant, the ram's horn is blown when Christ's Church is
raptured (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16).
Taurus - A
CHARGING BULL: Satan is
cast out of heaven and comes down to earth with great
wrath, KNOWING THAT HIS TIME IS "SHORT"
Gemini - The
Church will become a mirror image of Jesus, the
Bridegroom, His spiritual clone (Romans 8:29; 2
THE TWINS REPRESENT
THE RAPTURED CHURCH, SITTING WITH JESUS CHRIST ON HIS
THRONE, AS PROMISED IN HIS WORD (Revelation 3:21).
Cancer - the
crab, represents the
Antichrist, who appears only AFTER the Church is
Like him, the crab emerges

over the entire world is represented by THE BROAD SHELL.
His entire body is UNDER that shell, except for the legs
supported by 10 NATIONS, represented by the crab's 10 LEGS (Daniel
is called the Lion of Judah (Revelation 5:5).
The Lion is the King
of the jungle. Jesus is the
real "Lion King".
Leo represents His Second
Coming, and His Eternal Kingdom.
It's very significant
that, in the Zodiac planisphere, THE
LION (Jesus) is shown CONFRONTING THE CRAB (Antichrist and
his kingdom) HEAD-ON.
Jesus came the first
time as a Lamb, to die for our sins. He
comes the second time as a Lion, as King of Kings and Lord
of Lords (Revelation 19:16).
Of His Kingdom there
shall be no end (Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:30-33). Amen.
Not only do these
signs MATCH TO PERFECTION the major events in God's plan
of Redemption, they also
perfectly match their chronology.

GLORY OF God, and the firmament shows his handiwork"

them in a certain way, for a reason.
In the very first
chapter of the Bible, Genesis 1:14-19 God
says He placed the sun, moon and stars (constellations) in
the heavens FOR "SIGNS" AND FOR "SEASONS".
We know that certain
signs correspond with certain seasons, but it's the
"signs" themselves I want to discuss.
In the oldest book of
the Bible, God says: "can you bind the sweet influences of
Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth
Mazzaroth (the constellations or Zodiac) in his season?
Josephus, the meaning of
these signs was passed on to future generations by Seth
and by Enoch, Adam's grandson, who was such a
spiritual man that he walked with God and never died, but
was personally translated to heaven ALIVE (Genesis 5:24).
In Antiquities of
the Jews, Flavius Josephus, the famed and very
reliable Jewish historian, tells us that Seth,
the righteous son of Adam, set up two pillars, one of
brick and one of stone, inscribed with "that peculiar sort
of wisdom which is concerned WITH THE HEAVENLY BODIES, AND

Granted, thru the
centuries their meaning has been distorted, corrupted, and
used for divination, which the Bible explicitly forbids
(Deuteronomy 18:10, Isaiah 47:13).
Some charlatan on TV,
the internet, or the daily newspaper, tells people that
because such planet is going thru their sign, this or that
is going to happen.
That their sign will
determine their success or failure, who they are
compatible with, and how great or awful their "love life"
God never intended His
heavenly signs to be used for such corrupt and worldly
God said the stars
(constellations) were "signs".
Signs of what?
His plan of redemption.
That is how the wise
men who came from Babylon to honor the Christ Child were
guided by Jesus' star.
They saw it in the
heavens and KNEW that the
Messiah had been born (Matthew 2:2).
Jesus Himself was
appropriately born under the sign of Virgo, since He was
born of a VIRGIN (John 1:14).
Come back tomorrow
and we will look at the true meaning of the signs
You'll be astounded
at HOW PERFECTLY they match the Bible.

THE EARTH TEST
Once upon a time,
before humans were created, there were humanoid beings
living on this earth.
Satan was in charge
of those beings.
Satan FAILED THE
EARTH TEST by rebelling against God.
When he rebelled
against God, these beings rebelled with him.
They all FAILED THE
As result of their
rebellion, God drowned those beings IN THE FIRST FLOOD
(pre-Noah) and sent them to the abyss.
We know those ancient
beings today as demons (Luke 8:30-31).
Then God created man
(Adam) in His Image (Genesis 1:26-28).
He called them BOTH
(male and female) "Adam" (Genesis 5:1).
He separated the
female from the male.
Yet (and here,
according to Paul, is a GREAT Mystery) they
WOULD COME TOGETHER AGAIN AS "ONE FLESH", ONE Body (Ephesians

I don't know. It's

NOT WORTHY TO BE COMPARED with the glory that will

AGE OF THE UNIVERSE
NO ONE can PROVE that
the universe is 14 billion years old or that the earth is
4.5 billion years old, as posited by most scientists
These are BIASED
guesstimates from people who are ADAMANT about
even CONSIDERING the possibility of a Creator.
As remote as that
idea may seem TO THEIR LIMITED, FINITE HUMAN MINDS, they
CAN'T BE SURE OF ANYTHING if they haven't seriously
considered every possible alternative to their theory,
INCLUDING the idea of a Supreme Creator.
Since NO ONE has ever
seen a zebra turn into a horse, let alone a monkey turn
into a human, secular scientists need "BILLIONS AND
BILLIONS" of years to make
their pet theory of evolution seem plausible.
NO ONE really knows how
old the universe or this planet are.
Having said that, the
earth is OLDER than the approximate 6,000 years since ITS
RECREATION in Genesis chapter 1.

Genesis 1 text closely:
"In the beginning God
created the heaven and the earth"... (Genesis 1:1)
We are not told WHEN
that "beginning" was.
Some unknown period of time
must have lapsed, and MAJOR events must have taken place,
between the point of earth's creation in Genesis 1:1 and
In verse 2 we find
the earth was "formless and EMPTY" in
a chaotic state (tohu wabohu), COVERED WITH
WATER and engulfed in DARKNESS.
God is not the author
of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33).
He is Light and in
Him is NO DARKNESS at all (1
Therefore, when He
created the earth IT MUST HAVE BEEN ORDERLY AND THERE MUST
HAVE BEEN LIGHT.
This is reinforced by
the fact that, in verse 3, THE
FIRST THING He does is restore light to the earth.
In the verses that
follow, He proceeds to re-order and re-create the
1.Collect the water
in certain places, and allow the dry land to appear
2. Restore vegetation
3. Establish the
ordinances of sun, moon and stars in the sky (Genesis
4. Re-supply the
waters with fish and other aquatic life (Genesis 1:20-23).
5. Put all kinds of
birds in the air, and
livestock (Genesis 1:24).
7. Last, but not
least, He created man (Genesis 1:26-28).
This begs the
question: WHAT HAPPENED
between the time He created the heavens (expansion,
universe) and the earth in verse 1, and the chaotic state
of the earth in verse 2?
Answer: the satanic
It was Lucifer's
rebellion that caused God (in INNER space) to create the
universe (OUTER space), in
a burst of divine anger (Big Bang), by EJECTING
Satan (evil) from Himself.
There were humanoid
beings on this planet prior to Adam and Eve.
skeletal remains have been discovered many times.
Those beings rebelled
against God, along with Satan.
God sent the
first flood (prior to Noah's) and they
That is why in
Genesis 1:2 we find the earth COVERED
Their souls were sent
to the abyss, WHERE THEY ARE TODAY (Luke 8:31).
In the Bible the disembodied
spirits and souls of those pre-Adamic beings are known as
"demons" (Luke 8:30-31).
So WHEN did God
create the universe?
WHEN did He create the
Some have suggested
10,000-12,000 years ago. That makes a lot of sense, since
God DOESN'T NEED "billions and billions" of years to
accomplish ANY thing.
need billions of years, God
It must have been AT
LEAST 7,000-8,000 years ago. Emphasis on "AT LEAST".
DON'T REALLY KNOW and NO ONE - apart from God Himself
Bottom line: the
earth is much older than the approximate 6,000 years since
man (Adam) was put here.
Whether that "much
older" age is 500 billion years, 14 billion, 100,000, or
10,000 years... NO ONE but God presently KNOWS.

WHEN WAS THE WORLD
There are myriad
theories that try to pin down the Rapture and Second
Coming of Christ based on the year that God created the
What all these
theories have in common is THEY ARE ALL WRONG.
NO ONE but God knows when
He created the world.
The most learned and
diligent scholars have only been able to come up with
CALCULATIONS, that MAY BE
APPROXIMATE, but not totally accurate.
And by no means is
there consensus among the scholars as to the calculations
themselves, or even on the calculated year when it all
So I have to chuckle
when someone with minimal knowledge of Scripture, and even
less knowledge about Bible prophecy, comes up with a
complicated method of charts and equations "ascertaining" THE
PRECISE YEAR of either the Rapture, the Second Coming, or
both, and basing their absurd conclusions on Anno Mundi, PRETENDING
TO KNOW the EXACT YEAR in which the world was created.
The rabbinic calendar
is supposed to be based on the "creation of the world".
According to it, this
is year 5775 from the Creation.
The rabbinic calendar is
wrong in ways too numerous to mention.
It is based on CALCULATIONS,
Its errors include,
by their own admission, an UNCERTAIN NUMBER OF "missing"
And, Truth be told, THE
ONLY REASON they revised their calendar in the first
century, and made it official in 160 A.D. -- to
(supposedly) "coincide with the Creation of the world" -- is
because their religious leaders WANTED TO OBSCURE Jesus'
awesome fulfillment of Daniel 9-24-27.
The "creation of the
world" was merely a
convenient excuse for INTENTIONALLY CHANGING THEIR
CALENDAR to reflect their religious bias and conceal the
In 1178 A.D.
Maimonides gave his blessing to the "new" calendar and new
reckoning of years, INVENTED IN 160 A.D, which is widely
used and accepted among Jews to this day.
Of course, THAT
SAME CALENDAR establishes its "new year" as Tishri 1,
instead of the Torah-given day of Aviv 1 (Exodus 12:2).
THAT SAME CALENDAR also
erroneously calls Tishri 1 "Rosh Hashanah", instead of its
proper Torah-given name of Yom Teruah.
When people ADMIT
THERE'S A WHOLE BUNCH OF "MISSING YEARS" from their
calendar, DON'T KNOW THEIR OWN NEW YEAR - which has
been specified in the Torah for 3,500 years - and
CALL THE WRONG NEW YEAR BY THE WRONG NAME to boot...
THEY'RE IN NO POSITION to tell anyone THE TRUE DATE
WHEN God created the world.
JEWS don't know, NO ONE else knows, including you and
So much for the
spreaders of prophetic fantasies who try to impress others
with their super-complex and fallacious calculations.
If your starting point is
SUSPECT at best, and FALSE at worst, there's NO WAY your
calculations are correct, and THERE'S NO WAY you can
have the right date... FOR ANYTHING.

And just so we're
clear, I'm not talking merely about keeping the 10
Commandments, but about the
WHOLE law (Torah), ALL 613 commandments.
There are certain
segments in Christendom who INSIST -- despite Jesus' death
and Resurrection, despite the shedding of His precious
Blood, and despite the fact He made a NEW covenant of
GRACE-- that law (Torah) keeping is STILL required.
Let's indulge their
religious fantasy for a moment.
NO ONE, other than our Lord

ISIS AT EUPHRATES
For several days I've
been impressed to go back and take another look at
Revelation chapter 9, and specifically at the portion
where the 6th trumpet is blown and THE MISSILES ARE
LAUNCHED THAT KILL ONE-THIRD OF MANKIND.
I've dissected that
passage so many times, that I COULDN'T IMAGINE WHAT I
might have missed:
"The sixth angel
sounded his trumpet, and I HEARD A VOICE coming from the
four horns of the golden altar that is before God.
It said to the
sixth angel who had the trumpet, "RELEASE
THE FOUR MESSENGERS who ARE BOUND at
the great river Euphrates.
FOUR MESSENGERS WHO HAD BEEN KEPT READY FOR THIS VERY HOUR
AND DAY AND MONTH AND YEAR WERE RELEASED TO KILL A THIRD
The number of the

western portion of the Euphrates, on both sides, north and
Revelation 9:17 and 9:19 the missiles THAT KILL ONE-THIRD
OF HUMANITY issue "fire, smoke and sulphur" from their
mouths, and their tails are "like snakes" (lethal and
poisonous, which indicates they carry biological payload).
Revelation 9:15, these extremely lethal missiles have been
PREPARED (programmed) to launch at a SPECIFIC HOUR, of a
specific day, month and year.
The only way that
something can be PREPARED in advance to launch at a
SPECIFIC HOUR, of a SPECIFIC DATE, is via computerized
Just like you program
your DVR to record a program that you don't want to miss
at a specific hour, on a specific day.
WHO PREPARED or
PROGRAMMED the missiles to launch on a SPECIFIC DAY and
The Bible DOES NOT
give that information.
Zechariah saw one of
these missiles in a vision and called it "THE
CURSE that goes FORTH OVER THE WHOLE EARTH" and said
that it would destroy the house (temple) of THE THIEF
(Satan) and of everyone who swears falsely in the Name of
the Lord and uses His holy Name in vain (Zechariah 5:3-4).
RIGHT AFTER this
fateful event, Zechariah 5:5-11 sees two metaphoric women CARRYING
WICKEDNESS to ancient Babylon to BUILD it (Satan, EVIL) A
HOUSE (temple) there and TO SET IT UPON ITS BASE.
That makes perfect
sense since Babylon is the cradle of wickedness and Satan
Isaiah also saw these
missiles, and described them in chapter 18, of his

God's Word DOES NOT
SAY who placed the missiles by the Euphrates, or who
programmed the launchers.
My educated GUESS is
that THERE WERE weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, after
all. They may still be in Iraq, cleverly hidden, or in
Syria, or both, since the
Euphrates runs through both these nations.
They may have been
programmed by Saddam Hussein while he was in power, or
he may have simply stockpiled them, leaving them
(unknowingly) to be discovered by Isis and programmed by

For instance, in
their recent taking of Ramadi, they took American tanks
and humvees left by the fleeing Iraqi troops and turned
them into GIGANTIC BOMBS exploding with an impact
comparable to that of the terror attack on Oklahoma City
in the 90's.
It caught both the
Iraqi troops and their American "advisers" by surprise,
forcing them to abandon Ramadi, as
they were unprepared to deal with such overwhelming force.
Another grim example
is when their terrorist mother, Al Qaeda, used commercial
airplanes as missiles by ramming them into the Twin Towers
As I stated in a

Antichrist encounters during the tribulation comes from

I DON'T FEEL ANYTHING

we get from new believers who come to faith in Christ is:

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10,
THE TWO PRINCES -
The other fallacy
taught by prophecy gurus about the 70 weeks is that it's
Antichrist that causes "sacrifice and offering" to CEASE
in the "midst of the week" (Daniel 9:27).
There are several
problems with that theory:
1. Antichrist is
NOWHERE mentioned in this entire 70 weeks prophecy.
Repeat: Antichrist is
NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE in the 70 weeks
2. The individual
mentioned in verse 27 DOES
NOT STOP sacrifices DURING the
tribulation, but BEFORE it
starts, right smack IN THE MIDDLE (3½ years) OF the
Antichrist will stop
daily sacrifices WAY PAST
THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK, about 5-6 months into the
3½-year tribulation, (Daniel 8:13-14; 12:11-12).
3. The word used in
verse 27 for sacrifices and offerings to "cease" is
Shabbat, or "Sabbath".
This individual will
bring A SABBATH or REST to both animal sacrifices and
grain offerings, IN THE MIDDLE OF the 70th week.
This can ONLY refer to
Jesus, WHO DIED AND OFFERED HIMSELF AS SIN OFFERING on
Passover, right IN THE MIDDLE of the 70th week, after 3½
years of public ministry.
The Antichrist, who
is the human embodiment of Satan, CANNOT
bring a Sabbath (or REST) to anything.
Only THE CHRIST can do that.
4. Every Scripture
that refers to the INTERRUPTION of sacrifices by the
Antichrist during the tribulation uses the very similar
huram q hatamid (Daniel
wehesiru hatamid (Daniel 11:31) and
husar hatamid (Daniel 12:11).
NEVER does it use the
There's NO WAY, therefore,
that verse 27 can be referring to ANY Antichrist.
5. There is NO
TRIBULATION MENTIONED ANYWHERE in verses 26 or 27 of
Daniel chapter 9.
But, wait a minute, WHAT
ABOUT THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION that is mentioned in
Surely, you're not
saying that THE CHRIST places the Abomination of
Desolation in the temple, are you?
Verse 27 DOES
NOT mention the Abomination of Desolation.
Repeat: Daniel 9:27 DOES
the Abomination of Desolation, AT
I realize that is how
it reads in the NIV Version of the Bible.
The NIV IS
It says NO
SUCH THING in the original Hebrew.
Verse 27 -- as
CORRECTLY stated in the KJV Version of the Bible -- says:
overspreading (abundance) of ABOMINATIONS
(plural) He (Messiah Prince) shall make it (the
Second Temple) desolate, EVEN UNTIL THE END"...
Sure enough, the
Second Temple was destroyed BECAUSE OF the many
abominations taking place in it.
The same abominations
that Jesus exposed when He overturned the tables, threw
out the money changers, and said they'd turned His
Father's House into a "den of THIEVES" (John 2:14-16).
Sure enough, the
temple's location HAS REMAINED DESOLATE UNTIL TODAY (UNTIL
"the time of the end", just as this prophecy foretold.
And exactly as Jesus
Himself predicted that "not one stone would be left upon
another" (Matthew 24:2):
1. Since Daniel 9:27 predicts
the destruction of the Second Temple... the
Antichrist WOULD HAVE HAD TO APPEAR BEFORE Av 9, 70 A.D.
when the Second Temple was destroyed.
Had that been the
case, we'd be living today way PAST the Millennium, Satan
would be in the lake of fire for eternity, and we'd have
ourselves NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH.
2. Furthermore, the
Antichrist WOULD HAVE TO BE Titus, the Roman prince who
destroyed the Second Temple.
3. Daniel 9:27 speaks
of EXTREME (kenap) ABOMINATIONS
(plural) being THE CAUSE of the Second Temple's
destruction and permanent desolation until the "time of
"abominations" (plural) caused the Second Temple's
destruction, they CANNOT BE
the Abomination of Desolation (singular) which MUST
STAND for 1,150 days IN THE THIRD temple (Matthew 24:15;
4. The Antichrist
will place ONE Abomination in the temple, which will be a
statue of himself.
Every place where the AOD is
mentioned it is SINGULAR, NEVER PLURAL:
wehappesa somem (Daniel
hassiqqus mesomem (Daniel 11:31)
siqqus somem (Daniel 12:11)
eremoseos (Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14)
The Abomination of
ONE, not many. Therefore, it CANNOT be plural.
Therefore, it is NOT
mentioned in Daniel 9:27, which clearly speaks of
There is, therefore, NO
ANTICHRIST, and NO Abomination of Desolation in Daniel
Period. End of story.
Except for the Second
Coming of Christ, which will COMPLETE the 70th week, the
sequence of events foretold in this awesome prophecy HAS
BEEN ENTIRELY FULFILLED:
7 + 62 weeks (totaling
69 weeks) from 449 B.C. would
lead to Jesus' appearing.
After the final 62
week portion, Messiah would
die but not for Himself.
He would die IN THE
MIDDLE of the final 70th week bringing A REST (Sabbath) to
sacrifice and offering.
It happened, on
Passover, the MIDDLE of the "week" or 7-year shemittah
cycle, PRECISELY as foretold.
By His death -- in
the MIDDLE OF the week --Messiah CONFIRMED (strengthened)
the Abrahamic covenant.
With His own Blood, no

has remained that way for 1,945 years.
This prophecy is
ALL about THE CHRIST, Jerusalem, and the Second Temple.
It is NOT about the
Abomination of Desolation, or about the Antichrist.

THE TWO PRINCES
The 70 weeks prophecy
in Daniel chapter 9 speaks of TWO distinct princes:
Prince (moshiach nagid), (Daniel 9:25).
prince that shall come" (nagid habba) who will
DESTROY THE CITY (Jerusalem) and DESTROY THE TEMPLE
To say that the
prophecy establishment has badly botched this prophecy
would be an understatement.
TO turn a blind eye to history, and to
the amazingly precise fulfillment of this prophecy.
They SOMEHOW turn
the nagid habba or "prince that shall come" into
Nagid habba CANNOT
be the Antichrist.
There are TWO
INSURMOUNTABLE PROBLEMS with that theory:
1. The Antichrist DOES
NOT destroy Jerusalem. Rather, he
OCCUPIES IT for 42 months (Revelation 11:2; 13:5).
2. The Antichrist DOES
NOT destroy the temple. Rather, he
enters it and sits in it as God, then places a statue of
himself, known as the "Abomination of Desolation" INSIDE
THE TEMPLE (Matthew 24:15).
If the city
(Jerusalem) and the temple were destroyed, as Daniel 9:26
requires, there's NO WAY Antichrist could occupy Jerusalem
42 months and there's NO WAY
he could place the Abomination of Desolation in a temple
THAT NO LONGER EXISTS because he destroyed it.
Antichrist destroyed the temple, the Abomination of
Desolation COULD NOT STAND in the temple for just over 3
years (1,150 days) as required by Daniel 8:13-14.
These facts PROVE,
beyond any doubt, that that theory is FALSE.
There is NO WAY that
the prince that shall come (nagid habba) in Daniel
9:26 can be the Antichrist.
The question becomes:
"if he is NOT the Antichrist, WHO THE HECK IS HE?"
The answer: Titus.
In 70 A.D., some
600 years after this amazing prophecy was given, Roman
PRINCE Titus, son of Caesar Vespasian, came to
Jerusalem, DESTROYED THE CITY AND THE TEMPLE -- EXACTLY
as predicted in Daniel 9:26 -- and NOT leaving "one
stone upon another", as Jesus also had predicted (Matthew
There is NO Antichrist in
the 70 weeks prophecy.
The TWO PRINCES
MENTIONED are Jesus and Titus.

RAPTURE IN SEPTEMBER
Will the Rapture
happen on September 23, 2015?
NO. It will NOT.
We had barely crossed
from April into May and we were already getting a ton of
emails about that false theory. And it's getting worse in
Oh foolish Christians!
Poor, pitiful, confused,
spiritually emaciated weaklings!
Bible illiterates tossed to
and fro by EVERY wind of FALSE doctrine!
If you spent HALF
the time assimilating the Books of Daniel and
Revelation as you devote to prophecy TRAFFICKERS, to
SELLERS of WORTHLESS books and DVD's, and to delusional
conspiracy theorists, you
wouldn't be SO CONFUSED and EASILY DECEIVED.
You also wouldn't
be SO PARANOID.
But the U.S. will be
conducting special military exercises from July thru September
15, across 9 states...
I know. Where
in Scripture does it say that ANY MILITARY EXERCISE
predicts the Rapture?
But the Pope will visit the
White House on September
So what? The
"Pope" is NOT EVEN MENTIONED in the Bible.
But there's a fourth
"blood moon" on September
HAVE NOT BEEN ANY "blood
moons". NOR WILL THERE BE ONE ON 9/28.
What will happen on
9/28 is A NATURAL LUNAR ECLIPSE, which is NOT the "moon

back it up with Scripture IF
YOUR LIFE depended on it.
DARE YOU to try.
Well, HOW can you be
Simple: I know what
I trust His "MORE
SURE WORD OF PROPHECY" (2 Peter 1:19).
GOD SAYS that
Jesus must return at the end of the 70th "week" or
shemitta (Daniel 9:24).
GOD SAYS Jesus
WILL RETURN on Tishri 15, during the Feast of Sukkot
Since the tribulation
begins 3½ years PRIOR to His Second Coming, that means the
tribulation and Rapture must take place around Passover,
in the month of Aviv (a/k/a Nisan): IN
THE SPRING, NOT in September.

WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE
If Jesus appeared
today in visible, tangible, human form, I
wonder HOW MANY "Christians" would even RECOGNIZE Him.
If Truth Personified
walked among us, I wonder
HOW MANY "church goers" would be OFFENDED BY His Message.
I wonder how many "good
Christians", those nice, religious folk who NEVER MISS
Sunday service, WOULD CALL HIM "false teacher" and "false
prophet", because HE DOES NOT CONFORM TO their
MAN-INVENTED VERSION of "Christianity".
What most believers
today consider "being Christian" or "being Christ-like" DOES
NOT REMOTELY RESEMBLE Jesus' character, or what Jesus and
His Apostles preached and taught in the first century.
For starters, back
then there were NO
That's right: EVERY
DENOMINATION in existence - EVERY SINGLE ONE - IS A
FABRICATION INVENTED BY sinful, mortal men, at least
300 YEARS LATER.
Some were INVENTED as
recently as 68 and 150 years ago.
Take a DEEP breath
and meditate on THAT.
There were NO "CHURCH"
Those were also
INVENTED 300 years LATER.
When Christians spoke about
"church" they meant PEOPLE (2 Corinthians 1:1).
They meant A
GROUP OF BELIEVERS, not SOME STUPID, PRETENTIOUS BUILDING erected
as MONUMENT TO their pastor or denomination.
Take a couple of DEEP
breaths, then PAUSE and MEDITATE ON
The Apostles and
disciples KNEW Jesus
They had walked with
Him, lived with Him, traveled with Him, seen
and heard Him when He was loving and compassionate.
They'd also seen and heard
Him when He was NOT being so "religiously nice" and
They'd heard Him call the
Pharisees and LAW FANATICS OF HIS DAY "HYPOCRITES",
"fools" and "brood of snakes", among other things (Matthew
Therefore, they DID
NOT present ONLY a sanitized VERSION OF Jesus as do most
of those standing behind TV cameras and pulpits today.
They presented THE
REAL Jesus, who was NOT always sweet and nice.
They DID NOT SWEEP the part
of His Character that THEY DISAPPROVED OF UNDER THE RUG,
as most religious hirelings do today.
Better have the
smelling salts handy for this one:
Jesus and His
Apostles NEVER asked for
"tithes", NEVER asked for money, EVER.
They DID NOT demand "10% OF
ONE'S SALARY" in order to be a "member" in good standing
of their "group".
You can't find ONE
verse IN THE ENTIRE BIBLE that commands ANYONE - Jew,
Gentile, or Christian - to
pay 10% of their SALARIES to a minister, NOT ONE!!!
GOD (Jesus) and His
Apostles DID NOT HAVE fund raisers, bake sales, rummage
sales, or telethons.
They DID NOT HAVE
Christian bookstores, NOR
DID THEY SELL BOOKS, CD's, DVD's, WATER FROM THE
JORDAN RIVER, or ANYTHING ELSE.
They NEVER PROMISED ANYONE
WEALTH if they donated to Him/them.
They only received VOLUNTARY, VOLUNTARY, VOLUNTARY donations.
Jesus never made partaking
of Communion "CONDITIONAL" on "being a member" of "His
group" or on "tithing".
He even ADMINISTERED
COMMUNION TO JUDAS whom he KNEW to be A THIEF and THE
Jesus and His
disciples NEVER manipulated
or INTIMIDATED anyone to give.
They NEVER ISSUED any
threats of poverty, of NOT
being blessed by God, or (horror of horrors) that
God would CURSE His OWN CHILDREN over MEASLY money, for
not tithing or giving, AS MOST JOKERS WHO STAND BEHIND
PULPITS OR TV CAMERAS DO TODAY.

THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 2015
As human beings made
in the Image of God, we get to make thousands - if not
MILLIONS -- of decisions during our lifetime.
God knows each and
every one of those choices BEFORE we make them.
And He LOVES US - and
SAVES US - anyway.
However, we DO NOT
get to make every possible choice.
Some choices ARE MADE
FOR US. And there's NOTHING we can do about it.
For instance, you DID
NOT choose (at least consciously) to be born into this
You DID NOT choose
the day of your birth, or your parents, or your siblings
and other members of your physical family.
You had LITTLE OR NO
CHOICE at all in the way you were raised: what religion or
faith (if any) you were taught, where you lived or went to
We can blame ONE,
perhaps TWO incidents on "bad luck" or "chance", we may
blame ONE, perhaps TWO incidents on the interference of
others, but WE MUST ACCEPT
THE LION'S SHARE OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR OWN CHOICES.
That brings us to
the FOUR most important choices WE get to make:
1. HEALTH &
It's difficult to
serve God and others, or even enjoy life, when the body in
which we move around is unhealthy:
I'm aware that there
are other factors involved including genetics and
environment, but generally speaking:
Lots of water, some
activity you enjoy, even if it's housework or just
walking, lean protein, fruits and veggies. Keep processed
foods to a minimum.
2. MARRIAGE &
This is THE SECOND
MOST IMPORTANT CHOICE WE MAKE.
The person we marry
and/or with whom we have children can affect our lives in
COUNTLESS ways, even AFTER
(God forbid) we're separated or divorced.
Don't get pregnant
unless YOU'RE MARRIED and
UNLESS you are 100% CERTAIN he or she is "THE RIGHT ONE".
carefully. And, on this one, follow NOT ONLY your heart,
BUT YOUR HEAD.
3. LOVING GOD &
All of this world's
problems, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, are caused by LACK OF LOVE.
If you DON'T LOVE
God, you CANNOT love yourself because He made you in His
own Image and LIKENESS.
And if you DON'T LOVE
YOURSELF, you CANNOT love others.
But THE SINGLE MOST
IMPORTANT CHOICE WE MAKE is RECEIVING
Love Personified, Jesus Christ, into our hearts as God and
All other choices
will affect our TEMPORARY lives on this TEMPORARY planet.
But this ONE choice
will affect our lives NOW and FOR ETERNITY.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3,
WHO GOES WHERE & WHEN
There is TREMENDOUS
CONFUSION ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE and about salvation and
A brother or sister
is asked about this, and usually he or she HAS NO CONCRETE
We will endeavor in
today's message to CHANGE ALL THAT.
We have divided our
study into FIVE SECTIONS: BEFORE
the Resurrection of Christ, AFTER the Resurrection of
Christ, AT THE RAPTURE, During the Tribulation, and During
1. BEFORE THE RESURRECTION
Resurrection of Christ, the Old Testament was still in
Everyone (Jew or
Gentile) WHO DIED IN THE FAITH, BELIEVING IN the true God
(the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) and TRUSTING His
promise of a Redeemer went to Paradise. Everyone who
DIDN'T went to hell.
Hell, the underworld
or abode of the dead (Sheol in Hebrew, Hades in Greek), is
located in THE CENTER OF the earth and, according to Luke
16:22-26, was divided into TWO sections:
Paradise, a/k/a the "bosom
of Abraham", for those who died in the faith and hope of
the promised Savior (Genesis 3:15), and
HELL ITSELF, described as a fiery place of torment
In either case, hell
is a temporary place, NOT a final destination.
During the three days
and nights Jesus spent in the bowels of the earth (in hell
itself) He, in Spirit, preached
to those in hell who had perished during Noah's flood (1
If Salvation in hell
were impossible, there would have been NO POINT WHATSOEVER
in Him doing so.
2. AFTER THE RESURRECTION
The Death and
Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ CHANGED
It's AFTER His
Resurrection that the New Testament went into effect.
When Jesus rose from the
dead and ascended, He took ALL THOSE IN Paradise to heaven
with Him (2 Corinthians 12:2-4; Ephesians 4:8-9).
MANY Old Testament
saints He took to heaven in
spirit, soul AND BODY * (Matthew 27:52-53).
Others He took ONLY
in spirit and soul.
a born-again believer dies today, he or she IS INSTANTLY
TAKEN to the Presence of our Lord in spirit and soul (2
All the UNSAVED (who
HADN'T received Christ) stayed in hell after the
Those who die
PRESENTLY WITHOUT knowing Jesus, still go to hell. And they
STILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL to be saved by receiving
Jesus into their hearts.
3. AT THE RAPTURE
Those who have DIED
in the faith under both Old and New Testaments*, RISE FROM
THE DEAD FIRST, and those of us who (by God's Grace)
remain alive are TRANSFORMED "IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE" and
are CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM (1 Corinthians
15:50-55; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17).
* The exception being
the Old Testament saints mentioned above, who ALREADY ROSE
AND ASCENDED with Jesus (Matthew 27:52-53).
All who DO NOT receive
Christ remain either in hell (if they're dead) or on earth
if they're physically alive.
4. DURING THE TRIBULATION
The ONLY believers on
earth during the tribulation will be the 144,000
Israelites (Revelation 7:1-8), the Two Witnesses
(Revelation 11:3) and those who come to faith in Christ
during the reign of Antichrist.
There are THREE
SPECIAL raptures FOR them during the tribulation:
1. The Rapture of the
144,000 (Revelation 14:1-3).
2. The Rapture of the
"harvest of the earth" (unbelievers who come to faith in
Christ DURING the reign of Antichrist). They are taken up
BEFORE the final and MOST SEVERE "bowl" judgments
(Revelation 14:15-16 and 15:2).
3. The Resurrection
and Ascension of the Two Witnesses (Revelation 11:11-12).
Except for the Two
Witnesses who'll be resurrected PRIOR, ALL
BELIEVERS (Jew or Gentile) WHO DIE DURING the tribulation
are RESURRECTED at the START OF the Millennium to reign
with Jesus during the 1,000 years (Revelation 20:4).
UNBELIEVERS who DIE
during the tribulation go to hell.
SURVIVE the tribulation, and have acted wickedly toward
natural Israelites are sent
to the lake of fire (Matthew 13:41, 46).
Those who took the mark of
the beast are sent into the lake of fire forever, without
ANY POSSIBILITY OF SALVATION, EVER (Revelation
The Antichrist and
False prophet are hurled
ALIVE into the lake of fire (Revelation 19:20).
At that point,
Satan's angels are presumably sent there, too (Matthew
Satan IS IMPRISONED IN THE
ABYSS for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1-3).
SURVIVE the tribulation, somehow refused the mark of the
beast, and acted KINDLY TOWARD natural Israelites, and
LAST MINUTE BELIEVERS who received Jesus just prior to His
Second Coming, remain alive
and go into the Millennium (Matthew 25:31-40).

repopulate the earth during that Utopian Era.
who survive the tribulation are SAVED by their Messiah.
ALL ISRAEL IS SAVED
Jesus returns and
establishes His Kingdom on earth (Revelation 19:11-20;
5. DURING THE MILLENNIUM
During the Millennium
there will be NATURAL as well as SUPERNATURAL humans on
humans will be the collective Church. We will return with
Jesus in immortal, glorified bodies to reign with Him
(Daniel 7:27; Revelation 5:10).
The NATURAL humans
will be either natural Israelites, Gentile tribulation
survivors (see above) or their descendants who are born
during THE 1,000 YEARS.
Lifespan for natural
humans will be greatly increased during that Era.
Human death will be
VERY RARE during this peaceful Era. Most humans will
remain alive throughout the Millennium (Isaiah 65:20).
At the END OF THE
MILLENNIUM the faith of natural humans will be tested.
Salvation IS, has ALWAYS been, and will ALWAYS BE by grace
through faith (Genesis 15:6; Habakkuk 2:4; Ephesians
This applies to
EVERYONE, Jew or gentile.
Faith, according to
Hebrews 11:1 is "the substance of things HOPED FOR, the
evidence of things NOT SEEN".
Jesus Himself IN PERSON will be SEEN, reigning in
Jerusalem, it won't take any faith, AT THAT POINT, to
believe in Him.
It's at that time
when Satan is
THE ABYSS for a brief period, allowed to go forth and
tempt gentile nations for the last time, and the FINAL
BATTLE OF ALL TIME -- referred to as Gog and Magog --
takes place (Ezekiel chapters 38-39).
will have learned their lesson by then, and remain true
and faithful to their Messiah, who'll be living in their
midst (Romans 11:25-26).
Satan and his hordes
will attack Jerusalem IN A FUTILE LAST ATTEMPT to topple
the Kingdom of God and the rule of Jesus the King of kings
Needless to say, the
At that time Satan is
sent into the lake of fire FOR ALL ETERNITY (Revelation
20:10) Amen and amen.
Those who side with
Satan, those in hell who have not repented and trusted
Jesus by the end of the Millennium, and HELL ITSELF, are
subsequently tossed into the lake of fire which is ETERNAL
and IRREVERSIBLE (Revelation
All UNBELIEVERS OF
ALL THE AGES, WHO ARE STILL IN HELL AND HAVE REFUSED
ADAMANTLY TO RECEIVE JESUS, ARE SENT AT THAT TIME INTO THE
LAKE OF FIRE (Revelation 20:11-15).
NO ONE WILL COME OUT
OF THERE, EVER.
There will be new
heavens and a new earth (Revelation 21:1).
Natural humans who
remain faithful to Jesus get to populate the New Earth.
There will be NO MORE DEATH (Revelation 21:1-4).
They will have access
to New Jerusalem which is the heavenly city POPULATED BY
US, HIS CHURCH (Revelation 21:24-27).
In view of all this,
it's not only convenient and EXTREMELY DESIRABLE, but
SUPREMELY WISE to receive Christ into your heart RIGHT
If you receive Jesus
Christ into your heart AS GOD AND SAVIOR you
NEVER HAVE TO FEAR, WONDER OR WORRY ABOUT ANY
"condemnation" (Romans 8:1).
For those who TRULY
KNOW JESUS, there's NO CONDEMNATION OF ANY KIND, EVER:
Rather, the Promise of a glorious Destiny.
Glory to Him, who is
God and Savior, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen.

IS "LUCK" REAL?
EVERYONE reading this
message has at some point in their life, grumbled about
their "bad luck".
All of us have, at
one time or another, grudgingly and enviously commented on
how "lucky" someone else is.
Why is it that some people
just seem to turn everything they touch into gold, while
others who are MORE QUALIFIED, SMARTER, and BETTER, seem
Is there such thing as
From our perspective,
the answer is "yes".
From God's perspective,
the answer is "no".
Luck is defined as:
"AN UNPREDICTABLE AND
UNCONTROLLABLE FORCE THAT SHAPES EVENTS FAVORABLY OR
UNFAVORABLY for an individual, group or cause".
I DO NOT, for a
moment, pretend to know ALL
that is involved in the "behind the scenes" spirit
realm, to shape events in our lives.
However, God's Word
does shed SOME light on this issue:
As far as bad stuff
goes, we have an enemy called Satan whose aim is to kill,
steal and destroy, and whom we are commanded TO RESIST (John
10:10; Ephesians 6:12-17; James 4:7).
The Bible also talks
about EVERYONE being
affected (at some point) by "luck" or "chance" (Ecclesiastes
It also states THAT
WE PLAY A LARGE ROLE in
bringing about our own blessings or misfortune (Galatians
But it would take a
Mind as Wise and Infinite as God's to
understand all the mechanics involved in bringing about
events on earth, whether good or bad, as
well as when, where, and to whom it happens.
Since Jesus is the
beginning and the end, NOTHING catches Him by surprise.
Even the hairs on our heads are numbered.
though, it would be foolish to deny what man has
acknowledged and tried to figure out since time
That is why, since
ancient times, there have been astrologers, diviners, and
prophets, trying to predict man's fate, and whether it's
an opportune moment to do certain things, like go to war.
In other words, to
see if "luck" is on their side.
In ancient Greece,
there was the famed Oracle of Delphi, where a priestess
would supposedly speak in the name of the god Apollos, and
answer specific questions put to her.
Lest you think this
was only pagan practice, God
gave Israel the Urim and Thummim to predict whether
something was true or false, whether God was favorable to
their endeavor or not (Numbers 27:21; Nehemiah 7:65).
They also practiced casting
lots to determine what was God's will, or to ascertain
truth (1 Samuel 14:41-42; Acts 1:26).
In the New Testament, the
Urim and Thummim and the casting of lots WERE REPLACED BY
the Holy Spirit.
He is the One that we must
consult, as well as God's written Word (John 16:13).
A few things to keep
1. CURSES and HEXES:
born-again, NO ONE can put a
hex or curse on you to bring you "bad luck" (Ephesians
1:3; Numbers 23:19-23).
If things are not
going well in your life, you need to GET ALONE WITH God,
in a quiet place with no distractions, seek
Him with ALL your heart, and ask the Holy Spirit WHO LIVES
IN you for guidance.
Then WAIT UPON HIM,
stay focused on Him, (INSIDE you) until the answer comes.
If you seek Him with ALL
your heart, it won't take long to get an answer.
2. "LUCK" IS OFTEN IN THE
EYE OF THE BEHOLDER.
I'm sure many men
envied Jack Kennedy's "luck". After all, he was handsome,
intelligent, articulate, born into a rich and influential
family, President of the United States, leader of the free
world, married to elegant fashion icon Jackie, had two
beautiful children, and pretty much all the women he

For all his
privileged upbringing, his father fostered sibling
Jack always played
second fiddle to his older brother Joe, Jr. - always
competing with him and having to prove himself, and only
became Joe Sr's "number one" son after his elder brother
Likewise some women
may have considered Marilyn Monroe "lucky" for being a
sexy movie star, rich, famous, glamorous... Was she?
By all accounts she
had a very unhappy childhood, was molested, landed in a
foster home and, like JFK, her life ended tragically.
is ULTIMATELY in control of everything.
And although He
allows man to exercise his free will on this earth, which
often results in pretty horrific stuff, nothing happens
anywhere without His knowledge.
4. PSALM 73
God puts the whole
issue of "luck" into perspective for us in Psalm 73, which
is MUST READ for every believer.
BLESSINGS do manifest in our lives here on earth, don't
settle for just earthly luck.
TEMPORARY "luck" in
this TEMPORARY world is

"But when Sanballat
the Horonite, Tobiah the Ammonite official and Geshem the
Arab heard about it, they mocked and ridiculed us.
"What is this you are doing?" they asked. "Are you
rebelling against the king?"
I answered them by
saying, ‘The God of heaven will give us success. We his
servants will start rebuilding, BUT
AS FOR YOU, YOU HAVE NO SHARE IN JERUSALEM OR ANY LEGAL
CLAIM OR HISTORIC RIGHT TO IT'." (Nehemiah 2:20)
If anyone doubts
whether history repeats itself...
If anyone ever
doubted the Bible's relevance to this day and age, those
foreboding words were spoken OVER
2,400 YEARS AGO, before there were any "Palestinians" and
long before the word "Palestine" was even invented.
Jerusalem and the
first Temple had been TOTALLY destroyed, Jews had returned
from Babylonian exile and rebuilt a pitiful replica of the
first Temple, and now were
trying to rebuild Jerusalem's walls, repair its gates, and
make it inhabitable...
And ALREADY there were Arabs
occupying Judea, objecting and trying to sabotage
Jewish efforts to rebuild their capital.
ALREADY Arabs were accusing
them before international authorities, and using
psychological intimidation to impede progress.
The very Arabs that are
presently known by the misnomer "Palestinians".
It took someone with
the call of God, the
spiritual conviction and moral gumption of Nehemiah, to
stand up to them and CLEARLY STATE what was as true then
as it is now:
"YOU HAVE NO SHARE IN
JERUSALEM OR ANY LEGAL CLAIM OR HISTORIC RIGHT TO IT".
And ALL of God's
Those who AREN'T
saying "amen" ARE NOT GOD'S PEOPLE.
Those who AREN'T
saying "amen" have rebellious hearts.
Those who AREN'T
saying "amen" are CONTRADICTING God.
Those who AREN'T
saying "amen" DIRECTLY
OPPOSE the God they claim to represent by formally
acknowledging a NON- EXISTENT "Palestine"...
Those who AREN'T
saying "amen" and have the
audacity to call Christ's ENEMY "an angel of peace"...
They are NOT
spiritual leaders, but
politically biased impostors.
They will fall never
to rise again.
There will never be a
And Jerusalem will
