Divide & Conquer

“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”  Matthew 24:12   “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unyielding, slanderers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away.”  2nd Timothy 3:1-5   Understand as this study begins that this is not speaking of everyone, note that the Bible says ‘many’ not all.    There is a disease that started in this country some time ago.  I’ve spoken about it in the past, but the other day after hearing of some more problems, I thought about the horror of the way many people mistreat each other and was considering God’s Word, pondered a different angle, one that has to deal with end times events.   In a nutshell, most people should be able to understand that the love of many is already growing cold and this seems to be continuing to get worse as time goes on.  There is also a lot of unnatural affection, my mind always goes to the type of affection found via social media with a quick like, comment or emoji, but with no real substance many times.  In this there is affection and it is not traditional, therefore, can it be natural?   I had seen a study a few years back that young people, despite all of the technology and...

An Emergency

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of Heaven, but My Father only.  But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and did not realize until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  Then two will be in the field: one is taken and the other is left.  Two will be grinding at the mill: one is taken and the other is left.  Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord comes.  But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief comes, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be dug through.  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man comes at an hour you do not expect.  Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made administrator over his household, to give them food in due season?  Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing.  Truly, I say to you that he will appoint him as administrator over all his possessions.  But if that wicked servant says in his heart, My master delays his coming, and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a...

Guillotines & the Bible

“And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them; and I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not done homage to the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”  Revelation 20:4   This article is being done as a supplement to a radio show that will be aired in both the Philadelphia metro area, as well as throughout Africa.  Let’s take a moment to address this issue and look at some of the history of this teaching, then find out what the Bible says about guillotines and the Tribulation time period, starting off with a bit of history of the use of guillotines in our modern era.    Some research will show that guillotines and their predecessors can be tracked back to the Middle Ages, but the popularity of the guillotine, in its current form thought of in modern culture stems mainly back to the French Revolution.    During the French Revolution executions by guillotines were popularized and became quite a public display of death that were experienced by numerous amounts of victims.  In fact, the guillotine was used in France first in 1792 all the way until 1977!    There have been those who proclaim to have evidence for several years now of a conspiracy of guillotines being prepared to be used during martial law in the United States, as well also at least in...

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on all the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.  Therefore take up all the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand firm therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints; and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”  Ephesians 6:10-20 VW-Edition   “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For...

The Time of Jacob’s Trouble – Final

Second Coming   As should be understood at this point, there is the appearing of Jesus and the Second Coming, these are two separate events, one is the Rapture prior to the Seventh Week or the Tribulation, the other is His actual Second Coming (2 Tim. 4:1).  These two should not be mistaken.  The chapter His Glorious Appearing goes over the truth of this matter.   The battle of Armageddon began and quickly it ended.  The Second Coming of Jesus Christ is now at hand, the Savior of the world has finally come!!!   “And His feet shall stand in that day on the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall split in two, from the east even to the west, a very great valley. And half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it toward the south.”  Zechariah 14:4   “I saw in the night visions. And behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of the heavens. And He came to the Ancient of Days. And they brought Him near before Him.  And dominion was given to Him, and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.”  Daniel 7:13-14   “The burden of the Word of Jehovah against the land of Hadrach, and its resting place, Damascus, (when the eyes of man, and all the tribes of Israel are toward Jehovah), and Hamath also borders on...

Time of Jacob’s Trouble – Part 10

Battle of Armageddon   All of these events culminate at the battle of Armageddon, the most horrific example of human depravity and sin.  This is by far the climax of the worst point in history, a point in history where created man stand before their Creator, desiring to make war with Him who made the heavens and the earth.   Can a man gaze at the sun without his eyes being damaged?  Can one swim across the Atlantic Ocean?  Have we been able to search out the depths of the oceans?  Can we travel to the end of the universe?  Has mankind figured out a way to live for hundreds of years?  Can we dig to the center of the earth?    Of what folly would it be to pretend to wage war against God Almighty!!!  Yet, this is preciously what people will do.  They will have refused to repent (Rev. 16:9), they will have been angry towards the Most High (Rev. 16:11).  Whereas they do not understand that a man cannot run from God but ONLY to Him.  Their hearts, being so hardened, the deception being so great, they will tell themselves they are strong, they will come and they will get their just recompense, for God will recompense their deeds.   “Proclaim this among the nations: Consecrate a war; wake up the mighty men; let all the men of war draw near; let them come up.  Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, I am strong.  Assemble yourselves and come, all you nations; and gather yourselves together all around....
