JESUS IS Coming Soon! IF HE Came Today; Are You Ready?

A Valid Prophecy

The Book of Revelation is quite an interesting, intriguing narrative account of the grand finale! Bursting at the seam it encompasses a great wealth of relative, similar, prophetic symbolism that is also found in the Books of Daniel and Zechariah. It is in Revelation that John shares his many quite extraordinary, remarkable visions. John endured a lot of persecution because of his faith and belief in Jesus Christ. It is here on the rocky island of Patmos John was exiled because he would not worship the pagan image of emperor Domitian.

What is so amazing there was improvement needed in each of the churches. John writes to the churches to help them get themselves in order. When John is writing he is writing to GOD’S entire CHURCH all throughout each city. He is obedient to make known what the Lord has given him to share. He candidly and transparently writes to the Church in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Tyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and unto Laodicea. He warns them and tells them what is to come. He tells them to take head to what he is saying.

The Apostle John was a leader of the Church in Rome. He was placed on the rocky Isle of Patmos to be put to shame. He was isolated or rather banished because of His strong belief and testimony in Christ Jesus. The irony of this is John was so very deeply rooted and inspired by GOD. Therefore he did not allow his physicality to hinder him from being a yielded vessel to the Lord. He was well aware of GOD’S OMNIPRESENCE! No doubt he learned first hand “to be in the world but not of the world” Here on Patmos the Lord gave the Apostle John phenomenal vivid picturesque 3D visions of what was to come.

Revelation is a magnificent Book of Prophecy. It was shared and disbursed to the (7) seven Churches within Asia which was a province in the ancient Roman Empire. Today we and the Church at large down through the ages have continued to benefit greatly from Revelation and its intriguing spiritual wisdom. Always keep in mind that seven is the number of completion.

The beauty of the Lord is He does sometime require that we disengage from the world. But never isolate ourselves from Him. “Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you!” Most writers or scribes are accustomed to spending time away in order to bring forth a message. God did not make any of us to be robots. He who in the fullness of His sovereign power allows us to choose. It is wise to spend time in the presence of the LORD! He sharpens and refines our discernment. As we grow in the grace and wisdom of the Lord we become more aware of who He is. The incredible thing about the Lord is we are never away from HIS OMNIPRESENCE.

Scores of readers shy away from reading Revelation and find some of its contents a bit disturbing. Others simply find it weird and even a bit irrational. However, when one looks closer through a spiritual lens you will discover that John truly and unselfishly intended to enlighten, inspire hope and encouragement in the midst of his own personal predicament. Revelation contains valid prophecy and a plethora of spiritual blessings.

The (7) Seven Churches

The person of Jesus Christ, His divine nature and character are transparently revealed in Revelation. Revelation comes from the Greek word apokalypsis, it means the unveiling of something that was previously unrevealed. The Apostle John saw amazing enlightening visions that he was instructed to write down while exiled to the Island of Patmos. He was directed by the Lord to send letters to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea they were within the province of Asia. Within these seven cities the Church had been established. Remember John had been exiled to Patmos for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Revelation has been described as one of the most complicated, intimidating Books in the Bible. One might pose the question; “Well if it is so complicated then why bother at all to read Revelation?” First and foremost because it is the inspired Word of God. John gives us a profound reason to persevere through its contents. One must certainly solicit the aid and assistance of the Holy Spirit to open your spiritual ears for any lucid clarity. John himself really answers that question earlier on. He tells us that “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take it to heart what is written in it, because the time is near…”

The Apostle John astutely reinforces the fact that Jesus Christ is Lord! Everything was spoken into existence by Him and He is the Head of GOD’S CHURCH! He lived here on earth as the Son of GOD and He is the KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords.

CHRIST JESUS: THE WORD IN SINLESS FLESH

Here in Revelation we are reminded that Jesus created all things and all things are subject to Him. This was also confirmed in Colossians 1 & John 1. This further helps one to understand why Jesus humbled Himself, and actually became the “Word in Sinless Flesh.” It was out of obedience to the will of the Father that JESUS came to earth from Heaven. He Lived a disciplined sinless life and overcame sin in the flesh. He was heinously beaten, persecuted and slandered. He was crucified upon the cross, died, then arose gloriously with all power. CHRIST JESUS BECAME THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE and died for the sins of the world! Here we learn the immense significance of His amazing position as the “Lamb of God.” He once and for all gave His life. For those who believe this is the GOSPEL the “GOOD NEWS!” Just by knowing who we are in Him helps us to live or can help us to live victoriously as John did despite his situation and what was happening in the world!

Essentially our purpose for life and living is to discover GOD as our CREATOR and MAKER. To seek Him above everything else. We as believers belong to GOD. Therefore, we must accept CHRIST JESUS into our hearts as our LORD & SAVIOR! For we who are believers have been purchased with His Blood. GOD bestows upon us the precious “GIFT” of HIS HOLY SPIRIT; HIS COMFORTER TO LEAD US to ALL TRUTH! We must always keep in mind that The CHURCH belongs to HIM. CHRIST JESUS IS THE HEAD OF HIS CHURCH & HIS CHURCH IS HIS BRIDE!

Revelation contains an affluent wealth of prophetic visions that stretches one’s imagination to think far beyond the surface. To ponder and launch out into the deep where one’s faith or lack thereof becomes apparent. John goes on to describe the events on a scroll to be sent to the seven (7) cities where the Church was established. The seven (7) Spirits are the eyes of God which are spiritual facets of God’s Holy Spirit. The seven (7) gold lampstands represent the Church. To each of them he has some very specific and interesting comments. Take some time and see where your congregation of choice is? “He who has an ear, let Him hear what the Spirit says to the Church.”

It is important today in this 21st century to be mindful that the scriptures are being fulfilled. GOD’S WORD IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! God wants us to have an intimate daily personal relationship with Him. He is the Most High God above Him is no other! It is important to know the Lord’s Word for yourself. This way you “will no longer be infants tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming…” as expressed in Ephesians 4.

Ongoing Spiritual Warfare

It is here in Revelation that we are reminded of the ongoing spiritual warfare that was and has continued to go on within and against God’s Church. Keep in mind when Revelation was written the many large, small, storefront and or mega buildings where the Church comes together for worship did not exist. We are to worship God daily. Yes we can come together to worship. With two, three, a few, many or a multitude… We the people are GOD’S CHURCH not the buildings we gather together in. When CHRIST returns we will be “CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM in the CLOUDS to MEET THE LORD in the AIR. SO SHALL WE FOREVER BE WITH HIM ” I Thessalonians 4

We live within a Spiritual warzone. The war between good and evil continues to divide God’s Church. This is again why it is so very important to have an intimate personal relationship with the Lord and know His Word. Revelation does not easily open its contents for one to readily embrace and understand. One must seek and call upon the Holy Spirit to keep you attentive. To continue through the many passages that requires a deep concentration and steadfastness through the many tumultuous interludes.This is also why it is so very important to worship the LORD “in SPIRIT and in TRUTH” whenever or wherever you worship; GOD indeed, is always truly worthy of our sincere praise!

All in all Revelation major overtones reassures us that our HOPE and TRUST must be in the Lord. John clearly reminds us that GOD alone, gave His only Begotten Son to redeem us from the clutches of sin and death and insure our access to eternal life!

Seven (7) is the Number of Completion

It is through Adam & Eve that sin and death entered our existence. During one’s mesmerizing safaric enlightening journey through Revelation there are many turns and unexpected surprises. Vivid, veracious scenes depicting the seven (7) seals, seven (7) trumpets, scrolls, exotic creatures, dragons and angels, seven (7) plagues and seven (7) bowls of God’s wrath, and a wondrous plethora of rare precious gemstones and so much more… Here in Revelation there is also a wonderful vision magnificently illustrating the joy and honor for being invited to the great wedding supper.

SEVEN (7) is the number of COMPLETION! It is within the LORD we can become complete. Everything we will ever need for life, daily living & eternal life we can discover in Him. The KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords emerges and gives us a marvelous glimpse of what Heaven is like. Always keep in mind; It is through Jesus Christ’s love for us, His birth, sinless life, crucifixion, death and resurrection that we have been redeemed and given the gift of eternal life. Within the power of His Glorious Resurrection is our Eternal Hope!

What has been happening within our country and throughout this world…

Yes, our country had a dreadful economic crisis, and property values plummeted and are now slowly rising. Extreme climatic weather conditions worldwide have been occurring. A multiplicity of extreme devastating forest fires persist. And yes, we are also experiencing the collateral damage of this Pandemic Coronavirus all over the world… Millions have been globally impacted. Hundreds of thousands have lost their lives and many have despairingly suffered. Things on the earth will never be quite as they were. As long as there are human beings on earth we can expect something…

In His time the Lord will restore whatever has been unjustly taken from us. God always has something better in store. He will also strengthen and solidify your trust in Him as we embrace and apply His Word to our daily lives… With the Lord nothing is ever really lost it is often shifted to another form or location or held in abeyance momentarily. Know that God never has a recession in Heaven or earth. The earth and everything in it is His! He so graciously allows us here on earth to momentarily partake in His many blessings. Everything really does belongs to Him!


There is much spiritual warfare going on to undermine the principles of God. Look all around and see the things that have happened contrary to His Word! The Supreme Court even voted against the WORD of GOD in favor of “same sex unions.”


Yes there has been is a plethora of foreign and domestic terrorism. There is also a resurgence of racial discrimination, systemic racism, racial profiling, violation of privacy as well as escalating of the many varied and random senseless shootings…

Yes, let us be ever mindful of the earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, fires flooding, mudslides, rain, sleet, snow, fierce winds, storms, tsunamis and various horrendous extreme climatic weather conditions. The massive destructive heinous fires as well. Many lives, homes, businesses, possessions and sanctuaries have been lost. Pray for those who are going through and for those who continue to experience the repercussions of the aftermath from all of the various storms. In times like these we need a Savior.

We must learn to keep our focus upon the Lord!


Let us not overlook the scandalous political forum that persists. It is clear that the WORD of GOD is being fulfilled for some of everything is going on. Pandora’s Box has lost its lid.

All of this serves to confirm the authenticity of God’s Word! There is yet more to come.

It is so very important to spend some time daily in the Word of God! Pray for discernment so you can better discern what time it is. God has forewarned is to live each day as though the Lord were going to return.

The Angel in REVELATION speaks candidly to the Churches

In Revelation an angel of the Lord reminds us that “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord the God of the spirits and prophets, sent an angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” God knows us from the inside out through and through. He knows the why, who what, and why not. You may not want to think about it but time is of the essence. Our entire lives are an open book to the Lord this is inclusive of everyone all over this entire universe!

It is important that we keep in mind that our life continues on throughout eternity. It is important that you know without doubt for sure where you will spend eternity! This is not based upon what someone says, thinks or does not say about you. It is based on His Word and knowing without a doubt that it is to Him you belong. “It is in Him we live and move have our being.”

Hear what His Spirit has to say “BLESSED are those who wash their robes, that they may go through the gates of the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehoods…”

Although Revelation may be difficult to comprehend at times, I want to encourage you to read on prayerfully. Remember the Word of God is like no other. It is “quick (alive) and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword…”Since it is so full of vibrant life, each time you take time to read it and glean it’s wisdom your spiritual ears and eyes are opened just that much more! You can learn something new each time. And yes most definitely, Revelation always keep in mind is a valid prophecy

If you have truly accepted Jesus Christ into your heart you have been granted the “GIFT” of Eternal Life in Heaven. God is your Father & Creator! But, have you really given some serious thought to what eternity will be like? Are you really living today to prepare to live with the Lord for eternity? Imagine The Word tells us that there will be no more, death, pain or sorrow!“GOD will wipe every tear from their eyes; AND THERE WILL BE NO MORE death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there b an more pain. for the former things are passed away!” Revelation 21 For there will be ongoing praising & rejoicing...

It is important to realize when you truly are living for the Lord whatever you are going through its not over for you. It’s just temporary. REPENT! Have FAITH in GOD! In the end “WE WIN” GOD always has the last WORD! “These are the words of HIM who is HOLY and TRUE, who holds the KEY of DAVID, What HE opens NO ONE can shut, and what HE shuts NO ONE can open!”

GENESIS to REVELATION

The Bible starts with a marvelous story of Creation. Genesis records the Beginning. Revelation records the End. It concludes with the creation of a new heaven and earth in Revelation. Those who overcome through Jesus Christ will “stand firm in the end.” (evil will not be able to mimic itself as good and continue to deceive many…) We don’t know the day nor the hour but JESUS is coming soon!!! We can draw nigh to GOD everyday. For HE will draw nigh to you. We can also rest assured that CHRIST JESUS is coming back for those who have not already transitioned and gone on to Heaven! Yes; know there will be some who do not believe who will be “left behind.” YOU have a choice! Life is but a vapor. Your day of transitioning to the Lord can come any day… So, start preparing and living NOW EVERYDAY as though you really are expecting CHRIST JESUS to return TODAY!

The Promises of GOD will be fulfilled! HIS WORD will not return void.

In this world where disobedience, mistreatment, persecution, immorality, evil, lying, SPIRITUAL WARFARE and deception continue to rise and escalate… CHRIST JESUS OUR SAVIOR tells us to endure by FAITHTRUST HIM! In spite of how things appear. He really does ultimately have ALL things and everyone under His control! His message of Love, Repentance, Faith and Salvation are extended to ALL!

“THANK YOU HALLLELLLUJAH!”

HE IS The GOOD SHEPHERD! HE IS The “BRIGHT and MORNING STAR!” HE IS The GREAT; “I AM” and above HIM is no other! HE IS The ALPHA and The OMEGA THE BEGINNING AND THE END! THE FIRST & THE LAST! HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY! We CAN ALWAYS have HOPE and TRUST in THE LORD & HIS WORD! Therefore, LIVE EVERYDAY; “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!” & FOREVER BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!!!

REVELATION

Case Study of A Valid Prophecy

~ Part II ~

 

Revelation is an incredibly mesmerizing book about the present, the future and what is to come. Here we can find HOPE for NOW and in the future! John prolifically writes as he shares his vociferously illuminating intense visions while horrendously banished to the isle of Patmos. At some point in time life as we know it will end. It may be hard to fathom but one day the Lord is going to put an end to evil. Jesus Christ will emerge in the clouds suddenly and victoriously!

“For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven, with God and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4.

HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

Revelation is a powerfully complex book of prophecy. But how did it all begin anyway? Step back with me a bit to the very beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the Spirit of the God was hovering over the waters. And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. God saw that the Light was Good and He separated the Light from the darkness…” Genesis 1. (here you will find the rest of The Creation history) From the beginning of time Light was separated from the darkness!

“Then God said, “Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them…” Genesis 2. When God placed Adam in the garden with it was much freedom as well as dominion over the animals! He was told to work and take care of the land as well. Adam also named all the animals. No doubt that Adam was a genius of a man created, shaped and made alive by God himself. God told Adam; “You are free to eat from any tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” Genesis 2. God could have very well just not let Adam eat from the tree, but He gave Adam a choice. He did not make him a robot. Now we know God created the first man. NO! We did not evolve from apes or a “big bang!” Read on if you need more proof.

God decided it was not good for Adam to be alone so He made Eve. “But for the man there was not a suitable helper found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall in a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord made a woman from the rib He had taken out of man, and He brought her to man” Genesis 2. This is also verifies the first surgery. Truly God is the Doctor of doctors. He is the greatest physician ever! He made and therefore knows exactly what is necessary… Here as well is the first marriage. By the way, God’s design for marriage has not changed. Marriage is also the 1st institution God Made! One Man and one woman constitutes Holy Matrimony, which is marriage God’s Way!

Always keep in mind; God did not make us to be robots. From the very beginning God has given us the ability to choose. GOD IS LOVE and HE loves us. He gives us the freedom to learn how to love and live for Him! Here is a vital significant imperative life lesson. God adamantly told Adam “DO NOT” eat the fruit. Yet, Adam Choose to instead listen to Eve and went against what God said. The serpent, (satan) said to Eve “Did God really say, you must not really eat from the fruit in the garden?” Since the fruit was good and pleasing to the eyes and desirable Eve ate the fruit! Then gave some to Adam which he ate it as well… Here enters sin. The rest is history. Sin is anything that separates us from GOD! Time after time all throughout history in every subsequent generation when man does what God says “DO NOT” it always results in chaos! Instead satan makes one doubt what God really said. Or they simply choose to not listen and “do their own thing!” This is why it is so important to know the Word of God for yourself!!

Daily follow CHRIST JESUS!

Here in Revelation the last book in the Bible, we discover what happens when what we have come to know as “living,” will come to an end! Genesis is the beginning where it all started. There is so much in between. HEAVEN IS GOD’S THRONE and earth is GOD’S footstool. I suggest daily spending some time in the Word just getting to know more about life and many of the events that have taken place. There is nothing more important in life than to build an ongoing relationship with the Lord! GOD is the source of every good and perfect gift! HIS WORD; The Scriptures are powerful, “ALIVE” and full of godly spiritual wisdom!

BEWARE; For there have been many false prophesies

John in Revelation himself predicts Jesus’ announced return to the earth! It was erroneously predicted that the end of the world was coming in 2012. (PLEASE DO NOT TAKE HEED TO FALSE PROPHECY REGARDLESS OF WHO IT COMES FROM! ) Somewhere between December 21 and December 23 in 2012; it was said that there were going to be transformative events that would take place. It was thought; according to a Mayan long count calendar after 5,125 years the end of life as we now know it was to take place? It was believed that astronomical alignments combined with possible numerological formulas have contributed to this high probability of the end of the world event. Well it did not happen!

Another misinformed predictor, Patrick Geryl, a laboratory researcher erroneously believed as well that the end of life was slated for 2012. He even started a “survival group” of both men and women who shared his belief. Believing that we were due for catastrophic events he quit his job in preparation for this forthcoming event? He gathered a hoard of survival equipment. His group was building cement dwellings and caves…

He believed there would be nothing left? He predicted that “First, a polar reversal will cause the north to become the south and the sun to rise in the west. Shattering earthquakes, massive tidal waves and simultaneous volcanic eruptions will follow. Nuclear reactors will melt, buildings will crumble, and a cloud of volcanic dust will block out the sun for 40 years. Only the prepared would survive, Geryl said, and not even all of them…” There are many others throughout the world that shared his belief that the end was coming in 2012 a doomed apocalyptic event was inevitable” said Geryl. Not so! Well guess what the earth is still here. God has already told us that no one knows when the end come.

We can see through God’s Word that we are certainly in the latter end of the last days. (NO DOUBT THAT THE “PERILOUS DAYS” ARE UPON US. THERE IS MUCH MORE TURULENCE TO COME… ) Any & everything is going on that is contrary to God’s Word. This is why it is so very important to know the WORD of GOD for yourself. Pray for increased spiritual discernment!

Revelation is an excellent resource of prophecy. It is a series of profound prophetic visions it is the book of consummation. In the Greek the title of this text is called Apokalypsis Ioannnou = Revelation of John, which means “unveiling, disclosure or revelation” Revelations is noteworthy Apocalyptic literature. It is the most cryptic book in the Canon of Scriptures. What will the end be? Will it be a collision with a gargantuan galactic asteroid causing a colossal fire? Will it be a thermonuclear war? Will the ozone layer entirely deplete? What about the dreaded threat of global warming… NO one really knows!

Many others have also made predictions before and they have come and gone! We are still here! Despite all the various hypothetical possibilities no one knows when that time will be! But at some point the end will come. HOW DO WE KNOW THIS? because; GOD HAS SAID THIS IS SO! Know; this world is not our final destination, we are pilgrims passing through. John the Apostle announces and predicts Jesus’ return to the earth! He really gives us all some things to think about. Are you a believer? Really? How much time do you spend in the Word! Revelation is a good place for each of us to take time for personal private inventory. What if the Lord where to return today? What would you do or say? Is your house in order? Think about it; are you really ready to meet the Lord face to face?

WE CAN ALWAYS & FOREVER TRUST GOD & HIS WORD!

The Bible profoundly points to all the signs that will take place. At some point, time on this side of heaven, as we know it will be no more. Jesus’ second coming will be short and quick! This is what the Word says; “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, not the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill: one will be taken the other left.

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this; if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.” Matthew 24.

Regardless of what anyone says they cannot predict the end of time. Let if fall on a deaf ear. We are told to live each day as though the Lord was to return. Each one of us should really examine our lives to see if we are living in accordance with the Lord and daily applying His principles. I am sure we could all make some improvements. That is why the Lord still has us on this side of Heaven. We are mere bodies of breathing walking shaped formed dust. As long as we have breath in our bodies there is room for spiritual growth. Instead today numerous supposed believers look to the world and its influences for direction instead, and let it define for them what is right! They allow the ways of the world to influence their life and often dictate their lifestyle. In some case their worship and praise… Too many have allowed the world to shape and mold their lives, homes, careers as well as a lot of our worship services to the Lord! LORD HELP US!!!

Why GOD brought about the flood?

Let’s step back again and observe the events surrounding the first time the world was destroyed. As the population increased men laid aside God’s principles and did what they felt was right. “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. He had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on the earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, I am going to put an end to all the people, for the earth is full of violence because of them. I am going to surely destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself and ark of cypress wood… Noah did everything the Lord commanded” Genesis 6.

Notice when Noah was building the ark it had never ever rained! During this time he was building the ark he was ridiculed and isolated all because; his dedication to the ways of the Lord. Because of his adherence to be obedient to the Lord Noah was thought to be quite strange? Imagine this, there were millions of people on the earth at the time. They did not really believe that the end was coming? Well it came. Yet, only Noah and His family actually survived the flood!

Each day prepare Your home to be an “Ark of Safety! ” Welcome the presence of the LORD within your home daily.

We do know the next time the end comes, it will not be another flood to end it all. We do not know what will happen or what king of plague or pestilence we will experience… Do you know hat the rainbow means? This is what the rainbow symbolizes to the believer committed to God’s Word“Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbows appear in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.” Genesis 9.

THE RAINBOW IS A SIGN OF GOD’S PROMISE!

If you are one of those who do not believe in satan or hell or his deception now is the time to read the Word of God. Regardless as to what some say in society; It is important to acknowledge that the rainbow is a sign to God’s people about HIS PROMISE to never again destroy the earth with a flood. I assure you; It has absolutely nothing to do with your sexual preference…

Do not be deceived. It is important to know from a Biblical perspective the rainbow has absolutely nothing to do with same sex relationships. God does not approve of any sexual infidelities! Adultery, fornication, incest as well as any and all types of sexual abuse all go against His principles… GOD SAYS; REPENT!!! God does sanction and bless marriage between a Man and a Woman. This is called; “HOLY MATRIMONY!” “FOR THIS RESON A MAN WILL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE UNITED TO HIS WIFE, AND THEY SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH, THE MAN AND THE WOMAN WHERE NAKED AND NOT ASHAMED…” Genesis 2 This is not about hate but about teaching, preaching and proclaiming the WORD of GOD! I suggest spending some time in the Word. I assure you; “Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you” GOD can deliver you from any sin and place you upon “The Narrow Path” that leads to HIM! God is quite clear about this. Please do not wait like those who drowned in the time of Noah because they did not believe it was going to rain and a flood was coming. It really happened!

GOD HAS GIVEN US SPIRITUAL AND MORAL BOUNDARIES

If you are truly saved you have no need to worry. But you still need to continue to draw closer to our Lord daily. God has given us some spiritual and moral boundaries to keep us safe! If you are not saved, do you want to be saved? Do you want your children saved? Your friends, neighbors & co workers? Take some time and read the Word for yourself. What is a few moments each day in comparison to an eternity of torment? For hell, is real!

Accept Christ Jesus as Lord & Savior into your heart today! Confess Your sins. Get in the world and seek out those who are sound, dedicated and strong in the FAITH! Jesus came to save us from sin reigning within our lives. He came to take back what satan stole; he continues to deceive many. Christ Jesus came that we might have and abundant life in everyway! Eternal life is a precious gift that can only come from Him. He is the only doorway to heaven there is no other way!

Hades is another name for hell in the Greek it is a place for the underworld. It is the place for the dead or again sheol. Jesus has power over the grave as well as the power to forgive sins. When he arose from the dead; He went down in the earth and released those who were being held captive. GOD is the Creator & Sustainer of life. Since He made life He can surely restore it. He raised his close friend Lazarus from the grave after being dead for four days! He also gave life back to many others… Please listen attentively with your spiritual ears. Witness the Power and Love of Jesus firsthand for yourself as told in HIS WORD:

“When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw Him, she fell at His feet and said, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in Spirit and troubled. Where have you laid him, He asked. “Come and see, Lord, they replied. Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, “See how He loved him!”

But some of them said, “Could not He who opened the eyes of the blind man kept this man from dying? Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave and a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone, He said. “But Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been here for four days.” Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if I believed, you would see the GLORY of GOD?”

So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here. That they may believe that you sent me.” When He said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped in strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” John 11.

CHRIST JESUS RETURN IS IMMEMINENT

Knowing that the Lord’s return is imminent and unexpected we should daily live in a continuing preparation mode. Seeking Him above all else! Be mindful of what and who attempts to attach themselves to You. God knows our hearts, thoughts, actions and desires. God knows who is pretending and who is not! In the end He will separate the wheat from the tares and His sheep from the goats. In His time, He will reveal the wolves in sheep clothing.

Jesus is coming back! Know this for sure… We can always have hope knowing that we belong to the Lord! In the meantime “be as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove.” Whenever we transition or at what point we leave earth we who truly believe live eternally with Him in Heaven! So get ready to soar with the Lord!!! He can help you rise above the things that come to hinder and oppress us. You can be confident of this when you have truly & sincerely accepted Christ Jesus as Lord into your heart through FAITH as your personal Savior we will live with Him through Eternity!

Like it or not there will also be eternal punishment in the lake of fire which is hell or Gehenna. This is where those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ and repent will spend eternity! The bible talks about sheol meaning the place of the dead “The grave snatches those who have sinned.” Job 24. It is named after a valley in Hinnom which is near Jerusalem. Here children were sacrificed by pagans in the fire to idol gods. II Kings 23. Abortion is a modern form of sacrificing babies! It is sad but true; Sad yet; Many children today are still sacrificed via abortionHell has an eternal fire prepared for satan and his imps or fallen angel. It is the final place of torment for the wicked. Revelation 20. If you are one of those who do not believe in satan or hell now is the time to read the Word of God! Do not wait like those who drowned in the time of Noah because they did not believe it was going to rain.

REPENT!!!

If you have ever doubted the power of the Lord and His compassion and His power over life and death… Doubt no more! This is an extraordinary astonishing miracle. The Word of God is full of marvelous miracles, practical wisdom and instructions for life and exuberant living. Jesus came and fulfilled His purpose on earth. The religious leaders sought to undermine His pure intentions. Because of this miracle even more people flocked to Jesus. They were intimidated even more so. Jesus exposed them for what they really were. Jesus never intended that we live rigid legalistic unhappy lives. He came to set us all free to live for HIM everyday!

However rather than repent and accept Jesus the religious leaders of ole instead elected to secretly plot against Him. They even used one of his very own disciples, to betray Him which resulted in Him being crucified. Praise be to GOD, from this He himself emerged victoriously as well! “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen! Remember how He told you, while He was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again..!” Luke 24.


JESUS rose with ALL POWER and has POWER over death and the grave! Know this; “It is better to obey GOD rather than man!” It is only in the Lord you can discover True Security & Significance!

WE ALL NEED JESUS CHRIST as OUR SAVIOR and LORD!

In order to be saved from sin reigning in our lives. It is so very important to remember He is the only Door to Heaven. There is NO Other way! God is loving, generous, kind and merciful and so much more… He is also a God of wrath. But know this; There is no going to Heaven without believing in HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. Jesus purpose on earth was to live a sinless life in the flesh, overcome sin & death and show others the Way to Salvation.

CHRIST JESUS earthly mission has been fulfilled! It is now our purpose in life is to embrace and live by God’s principles and show others the Way to Salvation through Jesus Christ! “HE IS the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE!” We have learned that Genesis records the authentic beginning of the Creation history of the Bible. The Bible starts in Paradise and it ends in Paradise! Revelation records the end; starting with a new glorious beginning in the magnificent Holy City, New Jerusalem!

Revelation describes the exquisite brilliant bravura Holy City that has twelve larger than life gates that are each made of one marvelous extraordinary ostentatious pearl. John describes the extravagant beauty to behold in New Jerusalem. The River of the Water of Life, is as clear as crystal and it flows from the throne of GOD and HIS LAMB JESUS CHRIST down the center of the Great Street of the Holy City. Here are brilliant streets that miraculously are made of translucent gold. (Read Revelation 21 for more details)

There is a total absence of any evil in the Holy City! There is no Temple because here the glorious Glory of God resides in our perfected Heavenly home. There is no more night, or need for the sun or moon for the LORD will radiate HIS marvelous Light! In HIM is NO darkness. Here in Heaven our Heavenly Father & His Son will rain through Eternity.

ALMIGHTY GOD IS SOVEREIGN HE IS TRULY OMNIPOTENT

No matter what happens on earth; God is Sovereign! We who believe have a marvelous astounding breathtaking eternal home awaiting at the appointed time! It is so much more, far beyond what our limited finite minds can ever imagine. Only God knows when that time will be! Let’s get busy living each day for the Lord! Revelation ends saying; “And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon” AMEN! Come Lord Jesus. The grace of God be with HIS people. Amen!”

JESUS CHRIST second coming is sure and imminent it will be swift and sudden!!! Revelation is a Valid ProphecyCHRIST JESUS is the ALPHA and the OMEGA. HE IS the Beginning and the End. HE is KING of Kings. HE is LORD of Lords. HE is the MOST HIGH GOD! HE is the GREAT “I AM!” Forever & ever through eternity; Live Everyday; “To GOD Be The GLORY!”

“The Bride/The Church” – Premarital Conflict

The Bride

The Church is currently experiencing premarital conflict! The Lamb of the marriage supper is being overlooked. A few of the invited guests are parading themselves as the Groom. The fruits of the flesh are attempting to join the banquet. The bride should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white. The fine linen is the righteousness of the saints according to the Book of Revelations. The Church is the bride of Christ. Jesus will return for His Church of this we can be assured. But how close to being ready are we? Collectively as well as independently? The signs of the time are quite apparent. We are encountering a multiplicity of phenomenal events. Earthquakes in divers places, heinous crimes, escalating multiple shooting incidents in schools, places of worship, same sex relationships, blatant adultery, questionable political elections but what does it all mean? Time is winding down.

In earlier times a marriage betrothal represented a respected covenant. A covenant is something you keep not something you merely repeat. The Church’s responsibility has not changed in spite of what’s going on. The Bride should be in preparation for a wedding celebration. Everyday should be lived in anticipation of our Lord’s arrival.

God has placed His heirs in various places to prepare for this great event. Man can not number the guest list. It is so vast and contains such an array of guests that He has elected an international, interracial, multi cultural, conglomeration of folks. Their level of responsibilities differ greatly. Yet the overall objective should not take any attention away from this glorious blessed event. Peter tells us “but you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to GOD, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.” I Peter 2: 9-12 NIV. How prepared are you for His coming?

Preparing for a wedding involves much joy as well as fear and trepidation. But we can be assured that this wedding is in the will of God. The bridesmaids and groomsmen should not become confused. Their objective should be to assist in fostering a healthy spiritual environment for the ultimate feast. The instructions to prepare for this event have been given to us by GOD. He has even left His Holy Spirit to guide us and direct us to all truth. The truth is the bridal path. The CHURCH has only one Groom. No one can take the place of Jesus.

The participants of the bridal party have the obligation to come together. Not to distinguish who has more authority, but to work towards an effective Spirit-filled occasion. There are so many details involved that no one should worry about the significance of their participation. Staying focused will really help everyone from getting off track. Just remember we are all invited. Those who RSVP and plan on attending have one requirement – YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

The mind of Christ dwells in the hearts of each of His children. When we begin each day living in His presence we will not become sidetracked so easily. God has at His disposal everything we might possibly need. He knows what, when and who we need to fulfill our duties. Man does not live by bread alone but by what? THE WORD OF GOD.

Our Sunday, daily, weekly, monthly and annual rehearsal celebrations should consist of a delicacy of sacrifices of praise and spiritual food. The Holy Spirit stands invisibly positioned to confirm the Groom’s approval. We must truly desire to worship and respect God with our worship. To effectively do this, we must not allow personal agendas to permeate the worship. Praise is not always jumping up and down and running around. It is a combination of still quiet moments as well as hand clapping, dancing, shouting and praying without ceasing. The true worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth. Rebuke the things you know are not of God! Absolutely no junk food allowed! The main entrée is His Word whether it be in praise, song, sign language or the spoken word. The one thing we must keep in mind is WHO THE BRIDE BELONGS TO!

It is interesting to see how so many seem to think that their place of worship is the best place to be. You cannot limit God to your local place of worship. It is not always about being where you necessarily want to be. Sometimes He has you there to show a contrast. Jesus nor His disciples were not always welcomed where they were. For however long or short season He may have us in a particular place our focus must be upon Him. Don’t try to limit God to where you are. His world is vast. He is omnipresent! Your body is the temple where the Lord resides. Everywhere you are He is there.

Ask yourself if you’re ready for Him to return today? Have you been preparing? Is He abiding in your heart? Is He really welcomed in your home? Do you really worship Him in Spirit and in truth? Are you where He wants you to be or are you where you want to be? It is God’s will that is the desired avenue to the bridal path.

“Now as the church submits to Christ so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself. As a radiant church without stain or wrinkle or any blemish but holy and blameless. In this way should husbands love their wives as their own body…” Ephesians 5:22-28 NIV. Have you truly submitted to His will in your life?

We must get our lives in order. God is a God of order. He does have a plan for each of His children. We are to live out the principles in the scriptures and make them the blueprint for our lives. When two or three are gathered together in one accord IN HIS NAME God has promised to be in the midst. Jesus has already been lifted up on the cross. His Word will draw all of the bridal participants. He has made the ultimate sacrifice for us. He has redeemed us by His precious blood! BLESS HIS HOLY NAME! Know and Trust and never doubt that you are SAVED by HIS GRACE and Heaven is your Eternal destination. We must relinquish control of His Bride to the Holy Spirit! CHRIST is coming back for HIS CHURCH. A Church without spot or wrinkle. Get ready! LIVE EVERYDAY “To God Be The Glory!” COME LORD!
