  1. The Acts of the Apostles Chapter 15 "Paul's Ministry, Dissension Within, Dissension About Circumcision." In this fifteenth chapter of Acts about six years have passed since the return of Paul and Barnabas from their first missionary journey. During that six years there has been a great dissension and argueing over these Gentiles within the church. The confusion was over what these Gentiles should believe, and do with respect to the "law of Moses". Before the Gentiles came into the church, there was a stopping point for the Gentiles on entering the Church, and that was called Solomon's porch. The Gentiles could not go beyond that point physically, and certain teachings given within the Church could not be brought out to Solomon's porch. However, now the Gentiles are allowed to be brought into that Church body, and taught all the parts of the Chruch, and become joined with that Church body as one in Jesus Christ. You still had some old men of the Church, that just would not let go of the old ways, and when you hand on to the old ways, it is like saying that Christ was not crucified. You are then calling those great old Psalms, and prophecies of Isaiah and Zachariah telling of His coming and crucifixion, and describing how a seed would bring that truth generation after generation. To hand onto the old way, was to say that that never happened. So we see the conflict that can build, when some believers wanted to stand firm in the old ways. So this chapter deals with who you are to handle disputes within your group, when there is a difference of opinion and the matters concerning the Scriptures. Acts 15:1 "And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, "Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved." Here we see it translated as the country, rather then use the term, "Jews". This mixing of words has caused much trouble for the tribe of Judah, for the Kenites had mixed into, and took the major roles in the priestly, as well as the scribes duties. The Kenites, the sons of Cain, not of Judah, took over the role of keeping the records, and translation of Scriptures hundreds of years prior, back in captivity in Babylon. This is recorded in I Chronicles 2:55; I Chronicles 2:55 "And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez [Jerusalem in its fallen state], the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab." So we see in the past six years some new authorities have crept in, and are starting to mix the old traditions with the new gospel of salvation. God told the Apostle John to write in John 3:16; For God so loved the World [people in that world] that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believed on His name should not perish, but shall have everlasting life. So how can we say that a believer with much faith, and though he be uncircumcised, he cannot be saved? Friend this is what is called traditions of men. When the Kenites took over the priesthood, as recorded in Ezra and Nehemiah, and in the course of four hundered years changed the law of Moses to their own traditions. By the time Jesus Christ was born to the virgin Mary, this same Kenite priesthood had so changed that they were the ones that plotted to kill the Jesus when He showed the people that what they were taught as the Laws of Moses, were nothing but man's traditions. Traditions of men are a very dangerous thing, In the time of Jesus it was the Kenite traditions over-riding the laws of Moses, and now in the new established church, it is the old law that these men don't want to part with https://www.theseason.org/acts/acts15.htm
  2. When Nations turn against Israel

    Whom did I attack??????And it's a fact(most) Zionist Jew's don't believe in Christ. Yet Im the one attacked,go figure I questioned nobodies salvation on this thread,ever,and never will as only God can do that.... Why Jews Don't Believe In Jesus For 2,000 years Jews have rejected the Christian idea of Jesus as messiah. Why? by Rabbi Shraga Simmons One of the most common questions we receive at Aish.com is: "Why don't Jews believe in Jesus?" Let's understand why – not to disparage other religions, but rather to clarify the Jewish position. Jews do not accept Jesus as the messiah because: Jesus did not fulfill the messianic prophecies. Jesus did not embody the personal qualifications of the Messiah. Biblical verses "referring" to Jesus are mistranslations. Jewish belief is based on national revelation. Again not my words!!!!!!!!

  6. Evidences For A Young Earth

    God did not create this earth void and without form,it became that way,why?,because He destroyed it.This the reason why most can't follow scripture. Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." There are two bodies mentioned in this verse; the heaven and the earth. It simply stated a fact and left the time factor out. The verse not only did not say when, but left it totally to our imagination, as to the eternal span of time, and how the creation took place. In Proverbs 8:22 we read of wisdom speaking through Solomon. Wisdom is God for all wisdom is of God. "The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His ways, before the works of old." What works of old could this be? It is the old earth age, spoken of in Revelation 12:1-6. Proverbs 8:23; "I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was." This is stating that wisdom was with God, and He possessed me. Proverbs 8:24; "When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water." Before there was any need of an abyss, or pit, and the water to fill them, God's wisdom was there. Proverbs 8:25; "Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:" Before the earth even took on it's present form, with the high mountains and rolling hills, God's wisdom was there. Friend, God's wisdom played His part in the creation of this earth, and all wisdom comes from God. Proverbs 8:26; "While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the high part [beginning] of the dust of the world." God was there in wisdom before that first little atom, or speck of dust of the earth was formed. Before the laws of God that control the energy forces came into being, God's wisdom was there. Proverbs 8:27; "When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass [circle] upon the face of the depth:" Proverbs 8:28; "And when established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:" Proverbs 8:29; "When He gave to the sea His decree, that the waters should not pass His commandment: when He appointed the fountains of the earth:" In other words, there was land, and oceans, and fields and lakes, and God set His commandment that they should be separated through the "compass" which He set. Today we call it "gravity". This is the force which separates all water from dry land. When the waves hit the rocks of the shoreline, they resend back into the sea by the gravitational forces of the earth. God allowed Job to be tested by both Satan and his fellow man, in the first thirty seven chapters of the Book of Job. However, after 37 chapters of man's nonsense, ramblings, and bad advice by those around Job, God spoke to Job. Job 38:1, 2; "Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?" Job had been tested to the point of losing His entire family, all his property, and had been inflicted by sores and sickness, yet, he did not curse God. He was in a poor frame of mind when God again came to Job. Job 38:3; Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou Me." God told Job to straighten up and be a man, and listen to what He is about to tell Job. Then God spells out to Job how He laid out the foundations of the earth and the heaven, and all matters concerning them. Then for the rest of Job 38 and continuing in Job 39 we can see the same wisdom we read about in Proverbs 8. God told Job how He put the universe all together. Our God is infinite in wisdom and power, Yet His love for His children is so great that He allowed Himself to be killed as a man, on the cross at Calvary. In this love that He demonstrated for His children, He made it possible that we could approach Him as His child for our every need. This humbled Job before God, as it should to each of us, and He fell apart [Job 40]. God once again told Job to stand "like a man, and give answer to Him". Genesis 1:2 "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep." Who is that Spirit of God? He is the Holy Spirit, and it is God's Spirit that moved upon the face of the waters. In the Hebrew translation of the word, "was", as used in this verse "...the earth was without form,..."; in the original text it reads "became without form...". This same mistranslation of the word "became", and turning it into the word "was" is also present in Genesis 2:7. It should read there; "..and man became a living soul." was 1961 hayah hayah (haw-yaw); a primitive root [compare OT:1933]; to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary):KJV - beacon, altogether, be (-come), accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), do, faint, fall, follow, happen, have, last, pertain, quit (oneself-), require, use. void 922 bohuw (bo'-hoo); from an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, i.e. (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin: KJV - emptiness, void. The correct Hebrew translation from the Massoretic Hebrew text for the words, "without form"is "tohu-va bohu" in the Hebrew Strong's dictionary. So we see that the earth was not "created without form", but it "became [tohu] without form and void". Lets go to Strong's Hebrew dictionary, reference number 1961 to verify the word "was", that we read in this verse. "Yahah, haw-yaw; a prime root, to exit; to become, or come to pass." [#1961] Excerpt from The Companion Bible Appendix 8: The word "without form" (Hebrew tohu) is used of a subsequent event which, we know not how long after the Creation, befell the primitive creation of Genesis 1:1. It occurs in Genesis 1:2. Deuteronomy 32:10. 1Samuel 12:21 (twice). Job 6:18; 12:24; 26:7. Psalm 107:40. Isaiah 24:10; 29:21; 34:11; 40:17, 23; 41:29; 44:9; 45:18, 19; 49:4; 59:4. Jeremiah 4:23. The Hebrew bohu, rendered "void", means desolate, and occurs in Genesis 1:2. Isaiah 34:11. Jeremiah 4:23. The two words together occur in Genesis 1:2. Isaiah 34:11. Jeremiah 4:23. end Companion Bible excerpt "Tohu" of the earth, then means that total destruction had come to pass upon the earth. The second "was" in the verse is in italics type because there is no verb "to be" in the Hebrew language. One of the problems in translating the Hebrew into English is that the verb, "to be" is not distinguished from the verb, "to become". At the end of Genesis 1:1 the first earth age ceased to exist in its previous form. God created the earth to be inhabited, and then He destroyed it. There was an entire earth age that existed between verses one and two of Genesis. This first earth age is spoken of in II Peter, Jeremiah, Proverbs, and Jude. We will look into these Scripture passages and try to understand the deeper meaning of our Father's Word. If you don't understand that there was a first earth age, you will not understand why God would say in Malachi 1:3; "And I hated Esau...". God hated Esau even while he was in his mother's womb. It was in the first earth age that God hated Esau, because of what Esau did in that first earth age. It was what Esau's soul did in that age that so angered God; and that anger passed on to the embryo of Esau, when his soul entered into this earth age. See also Romans 9:13. This verse, then, does verify the fact that our earth is older than 6,000 years old. To be more exact, it's probably many millions of years old. However, no matter how old this earth is, it is the only place we can live on in the flesh and survive. We do not worship God's creation; we are to worship the creator, our Heavenly Father. God is in control of all of His creation, and He destroyed all forms of life that lived on the earth from the first earth age. In Isaiah 45:18; "For thus saith the Lord That created the heavens; God Himself That formed the earth and made it; He hath established it He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: "I am the Lord; and there is none else." This is God speaking as Isaiah is writing it down, and He is telling us that when He created the earth, it was not in vain. "Vain" is the same Hebrew word that we saw in Genesis 1:2, which was given as "void". God created this earth to be lived on, and to be inhabited. Genesis 1:1told us that God created the earth to be inhabited. The "Tohu", the "destruction", was not part of the creation plan of verse one, but came after the fall of Satan when one third of all the souls followed Satan in the first earth age, in verse two. We find more documentation concerning the first earth age in II Peter 3. In fact we can read of all three earth ages, as Peter becomes a witness to the fact. II Peter 3:5; "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:" The earth came about by "the word of God", God's speech. Some ministers preach that this was Noah's flood, well let's see. II Peter 3:6; "Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:" Perished means total destruction. "The world [age] that then was" ended in total ruin through another flood that was prior to Noah's day. There were no survivors of that flood; no animals, no man, no insects, nor vegetation survived in any form. Everything perished! We know in Noah's flood that two of all life forms were saved. When you drive out on the highway today, and look at the road cutaways, you can see the layers that the ages and time have formed over the eons of years. You say this earth is 6000 years? Even a child should know better than that. II Peter 3:7; "But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are dept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." This is the second heaven and earth age which we are living in now. This earth age will not be destroyed until God's time of judgment on the ungodly men of this earth age comes to a close. that time of perdition [destruction] is after the millennium, and after the judgment. Then will come the consuming fire. Hebrews 12:19 tells us that our God is that consuming fire. II Peter 3:8; "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." One week is 7000 years, and we are coming to the Sabbath of that week very shortly, which the common name for the next thousand years is "the Millennium age". The Millennium age is the thousand years after Jesus Christ returns to earth at the seventh trumpet to establish his kingdom here on earth. All souls at that time will not be in the flesh bodies, but in another dimension. They will exist in their incorruptible bodies, spoken of in I Corinthians 15:50-54. II Peter 3:9; "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." That means that you can count on our Heavenly Father concerning His promises. God has much patience concerning His children. It isn't God's will that any soul should perish. God did not even intend for Satan to perish, as stated in Ezekiel 28, but that doesn't mean God will not bring about the perishing of souls; for it is up to the soul to choose. That is what our free will is all about. II Peter 3:10; "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." "A thief in the night" is an figure of speech meaning that Christ will come at an unexpected time. This sounds like a scary time, but what does it say in in the original text, being translated to English? The "elements" are all the "rudiments"; that is the evil spirits, all evil men are part of those rudiments, as well as all forms of idolatry. They will all burn at their appointed time. These elements are not the elements that go to make up the physical properties of this earth. This is addressed only to those things that offend our Heavenly Father. So we have witnessed in II Peter 3 that there are three earth ages, and three heaven ages that correspond with the earth age periods of time. We see also in Jeremiah 4 that there is another witness to the fact of these three earth ages. Jeremiah 4:22; "For My people is foolish, they have not known Me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge." How many people really know God's Word? There are very few that can quote you anything from the Bible, except those parts that can give them personal gain. The translators were kind to use the word "sottish", for the word means just plain "stupid", or "silly". The nature of mankind today is to "make a buck any way that you can". Their minds are evil constantly, as they were in the days of Noah. However, in the ways of goodness, and doing right, there is a void. Jeremiah 4:23; "I beheld the earth, and, lo it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light." Here we get back to the same word that we saw earlier in Genesis 1:2; The Hebrew word "Tohu" for "void". In other words, God is saying, "I destroyed the first heaven and earth age." There simply was no life form existing on this earth at the close of the first earth age in any form. Jeremiah 4:24; "I beheld the mountains, and lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly." This is why the magnetic north is 90 miles off true north? God shook the earth and everything moved from its foundations at the time the destruction "tohu" took place. Jeremiah 4:25; "I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled." Did you get that? No man, no animals, and not even the birds were left alive. The earth was covered with water, and life could not exist. There was no boat floating around on the surface, for the span of time could have been for thousands of years, or a much greater time. Jeremiah 4:26; "I beheld, and lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by His fierce anger." In this flood there wasn't a tree or a blade of grass left with life in it. However, what about these "cities" that once existed? Yes there were cities at that time, and God's anger and fury against Satan, and the third of God's children that followed Satan, caused God to destroy that entire earth age, and all that was part of it. That is what God meant in Hebrews 11:7 when He said, "I shook her once and know I'll shake her again." The only thing that will be left standing then, is that which is unshakeable, and it will only be those who have repented, and have Jesus Christ in their heart. They are those souls that were sealed in their minds, and did not bow to the Antichrist, his system, or take his name, nor his number. Jeremiah 4:27; "For thus hath the Lord said, "The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end." God allowed the waters of the first earth age to recede, and from it came a condition whereby we can live in this second earth age. Each soul, or God's child, will pass through this flesh earth age once, and we have the choice to chose either light or darkness; Jesus Christ or Satan. When God created each soul and gave it free will, He cannot force that soul to love Him. You cannot buy love, or it will be a false love. God is looking for your tender love; from within your free soul. It is your choice. So we have documented from the Bible that there was an earth age prior to this earth age we now live in. God created that first earth age in good standing to be inhabited, as it was written in Isaiah 45:18; then after this it became "without form and void" [in the Hebrew, "Tohu va bohu"]. Why? Because Satan brought sin into the world of that first earth age. and that sin was so great that one third of all God's children followed Satan, and that sin brought God's anger upon the whole world. It was then that Satan was sentenced to the death of his soul. This is why Satan is called the "son of perdition" in II Thessalonians 2:3, and John 17:12. Satan refused to repent, as God allowed him the time to get right with Him. Verse three starts after the first earth age, after the overthrow by Satan, and after the total destruction of the first earth age and all life forms on it Genesis 1:3 "And God said, "let there be light:" and there was light." Almost every verse involving this creation story of Genesis one starts with the words; "And God said.". However in the Hebrew text it says; "And the Magnificent Lord God Almighty". The original text gives God the full Spirit movement, and the most respect possible for our Almighty Father God. This verse is still in the first day when the light came into being. Genesis 1:4 "And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness." Genesis 1:5 "And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day." It will be on into another day that the sun, and moon, and stars were created. What does it mean then when God said, "Let there be light"? When the Holy Spirit of God, the "Ruach" in the Hebrew, moved upon the face of the earth; there is light, for He [the Holy Spirit] is light. Without the Holy Spirit there is total darkness, so the Holy Spirit of God, on the first day started His work. Within the first chapter of Genesis God reveals His entire plan of God. Verses three through five are NOT dealing with the sun and moon, for they come later. But it is dealing with the presence of the Holy Spirit of God that is to be present throughout this earth age. That "Ruach" or Spirit is the first, and most important part of the creation, for without The Holy Spirit there is only darkness. This is also the start of God's plan, which includes you and I, and all of God's children. The choice is choosing between the "Light", which is the Spirit of God", and darkness. Ezekiel 28:12-19 declares Satan, "the King of Tyrus", to be that darkness in the world. Then if your choice be darkness, verse 18 declares your destination after judgment: "I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth..." All prophecies in the entire Bible that refer to God's elect, or the children of God; those that happen to be in God's will, are called "children of light". This also applies to prophecies that are given in days, or solar years. [see Daniel 12:11] In turn, all prophecies dealing with Satan, his wickedness, and his children are given in months, or moons. Satan's children, then are called the "children of darkness", or "of the night". [see Revelation 13:4, 5] Satan is the darkness that is the negative part of God's plan. Satan was here from the beginning of this earth age, and God allowed it
  7. Defense of the Pre Trib Rapture

    Thank you,and that's why Christ went and preached to then in prison. I Peter 3:18 "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:" The purpose for Jesus Christ's coming to earth and living in the flesh, was so that He would die on the cross for your sins. Jesus was just [righteous] in all manner of His flesh life, and in His death "the Just" suffered for the sins of the unjust. Jesus Christ came to earth to die so that you do not need to go to hell, but by your faith in Him and belief in what Jesus has done on the cross, through your repentance to the Father in Jesus name you can be saved. It is your soul that receives eternal life, and when this flesh body dies and is laid in the ground, it is your spirit and soul that is quickened, or goes on living eternally. That is the work of the Holy Spirit, giving you new changed life, where there was only a dead soul before. Jesus died to bring all souls to the Father. If you ever had any question as to what part of Jesus died on the cross, you have it right here. Jesus Christ's flesh body was died, whereas His spiritual body was quickened or made alive by His Spirit. Jesus was spiritually alive when He descended into the prison to preach to those lost souls. I Peter 3:19 "By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison," These spirits that Christ preached to in prison, where the spirits of the saints that died prior to His death on the cross. I Peter 3:20 "Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering for God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water." Note the word "sometime", they were not disobedient all the time like the fallen angels, but were disobedient while living in the flesh body. Do you think that it was the whether that saved those adamic souls? They were saved from the water, and the reason that God saved them is given in Genesis 6:9; "THESE ARE THE GENERATIONS OF NOAH: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." The key to understanding this verse is in the word "perfect", for in the Hebrew text, it is the word "tamin", which means "without blemish as to breed or pedigree." In Genesis 6:1-7, when men started to multiply on the face of the earth, daughters were born to them. When the sons of God beheld the daughters of men, they desired them. Many "sons of God" or fallen angels left their place of habitation in the heavens and came to earth and multiplied with those daughters of flesh man, and from them came the Nethinim. This is what the book of Jude is all about.
  8. The sixth seal.

    Where do you get a rapture in Rev 6? Revelation 6:12 "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;" Revelation 6:13 "And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely [unripe] figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind." Word References: "untimely figs" - 3653 olunthos (ol'-oon-thos); of uncertain derivation; an unripe (because out of season) fig: KJV-- untimely fig. The trouble starts in heaven, as it is written in Revelation 12:7-9, where Michael casts Satan upon the earth. When Satan is gone, then there is peace in heaven, but woe to them on the earth for his destination is earth. These are the "untimely figs" which are harvested out of season. Jesus talks about this in Mark 13:24, and it this will be covered in detail in Revelation 12. This covers the second advent [coming of Christ], and these figs [people] who claim the name of Christ, yet do not know God's Word, nor His times and seasons. These people will be taken by the Antichrist [out of season]. God's elect will not be taken out of season, but will stand all events and allow the Spirit to give answer for them. Mark 13:27 says, "And then shall He send his angels and shall gather together His elect..." This is what many call the "rapture", and but it's not hard to figure out something is missing here in that theory. Christ is coming here to earth; they are not leaving to go anywhere. The "four winds" are the four spirits at the end of this earth age. This is discussed in Revelation 7. Mark 13:28 "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:" Christ cursed this tree, whereby it will never bring forth fruit, but only leaves. Summer is the time when God will gather His elect. The fruit is in season, and the fruit is ripe. Mark 13:29 "So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it [He] is nigh, even at the door." These "Kenites" took over the scribe duties from the Levites, as recorded in First Chronicles 2:55, and the priest duties as recorded in Ezra 2:43-65. They mixed with the people of Judah, and even called themselves "Jews", taking the name which did not belong to them. Matthew 13:39 even identifies them as children of the devil. These are the people (the kenites) who plotted and killed Jesus and Judas, and are referred to in Revelation chapters 2, and 3, by their saying, "they are of Judah, when in fact they are not." If you are to understand any of the prophecy of the final days, you must know who these people are. You must know how they operate, and just why they do what they do. They are the negative part of God's plan, and God's people are not to harm them in any way, in fact, because of the plan to use Judah as their shield, they are well hidden. To pull or try to gather these tares, from among the wheat, damages the wheat. Christ instructed us to leave them alone: Matthew 13:29-30 "But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.[29] Let both grow together until the harvest: [30]" However,when you know them, you are not taken in by them. You now have the key that opens many doors of understanding if your eyes are spiritually capable of seeing it. It's a spiritual insight; you either see it, or you do not. This is what the Churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia understood. That these Kenites were in their midst; that they were the offspring of Satan, and that they also altered doctrine of the churches in the final days, and that the other five churches would follow the first Christ on the scene, the Antichrist. Is this what your church teaches? God is pleased with churches [Christians] that seek the truth, and not accept man's traditional teaching, such as Easter [Ishtar], and the rapture theory without documenting it through God's Word. Mark 13:30 "Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done." This generation that shall not pass away started either on May 15, 1948 at the founding of the nation of Israel or after the war of 1967 when the Jews took Jerusalem, and must come to a close very shortly. This is why the things mentioned in end time prophecy seem so common and not mystical, for your living your life in that time. Those thing are happening in government, on the news, in the schools and even in many of our homes. Revelation 6:14 "And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places." At Jesus Christ's return their will be a mighty shaking. Those mountains are nations, and they will not be moved, but removed and not exist as governing bodies. There will be only Christ's Kingdom left on this earth, as we move into the Millennium age of Christ's kingdom. Revelation 6:15 "And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;" All mankind except God's "elect", the remnant, and the 144,000 of chapter seven, will be part of Satan's [Antichrist's] kingdom. When the rest of the Christians see our Lord Jesus Christ coming, they will all know immediately what they have done. Then the shame will be great, to the point of killing themselves, if it were possible. But it will not be possible for all souls will be changed into their incorruptible bodies at the coming of Christ. I Corinthians 15:50-54reveals that no flesh and blood can nor will exist at that time, nor will any of the things dealing with the flesh body exist. Revelation 6:16 "And said to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:" This bears repeating, but if you simply can not understand that the Antichrist comes first, before Jesus Christ's return, you will worship the Antichrist as the true Christ. This verse is describing how you will feel when you see the true Christ at the seventh trumpet. The fear will be so great that it will be a terror to your mind for the sins that you have committed in worshipping the false christ. Revelation 6:17 "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" Many Christians have been taught that at Christ's coming, the wrath of God is out to bury you, and destroy the entire earth. God, in the minds of most Christians, has the image of a harsh destroyer, instead of the loving and compassionate friend that we have in Him. By their own teaching, most of the church world condemn themselves. The wrath of the lamb, will not let one soul slip from Him in ignorance. The judgment comes following 1000 years of Christ's kingdom [the millennium]. Revelation 6:16-17 sets the frame of mind for all those who have allowed the Kenites to interpret the Scriptures [Bible] for them. This is what the fools are saying, and not what God's Word promised us. This entire chapter leads us to that one great "Day of the Lord", and Christ's return at the seventh trumpet.
  9. Spiritual or Physical Death

    The Assyrian is a type of Satan Ezek 31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters. 8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty. 9I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him. None was like satan in beauty, such that it caused envy. What kind of trees envy? Trees are used also as the symbol or a type of man; Christ is saying more than He is saying in words. Mark 8:25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. Yes the man saw clearly; he could see the trees in the garden and in the book of Revelation. (5081 telaugos (tay-low-goce');adverb from a compound of a derivative of 5056 and 827; in a far-shining manner, i.e. plainly: KJV-- clearly. {from5056 telos (tel'-os); from a primary tello (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly, the point aimed at as a limit, i.e. (by implication) the conclusion of an act or state (termination [literally, figuratively or indefinitely], result [immediate, ultimate or prophetic], purpose); specifically, an impost or levy (as paid): KJV-- + continual, custom, end (-ing), finally, uttermost. Compare 5411. Cf telescope: to draw things in closely}. Let’s expand our view, telescope through the scriptures so we might see more clearly. Rom 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; You may be a tree grafted into the kingdom - Rom 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? Or you may be a branch of the natural tree re-grafted to God’s family - Jude 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; These trees are supposed to bear fruit! James 3:12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. There will be imitation trees. Be careful! Look at what Matthew has to say about trees Matt 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Matt 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. This fruit comes from having Gods word in your heart better said, mind. Matt 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. Jesus spoke these words after casting out the money changers. Can you see the connection with false religion here. The false teachers partook of false religious practices; leaven; fragmented bread. Rev 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. Here begins the sequence for deception of the last days Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And the sealing of those with the truth who are His children. In the first seal of Revelation satan comes on a white horse with an imitation bow. Is this knowledge sealed in your mind? If it isn’t your in trouble! You may not be able to distinguish the truth from the imitation. That system is already here in its pre-locust pupal form. Look around at the false teachings, open your eyes to the leaven! Rev 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. Why are one third of the trees burnt up? Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. Here we see again men defined as trees - God said there would be a blessing for you for those who read the book of Revelation. God’s seal is the seal of truth in your mind: the word (Jesus) filling your mind, opening your eyes, so that you would be able to discern the lies of this age; or those with eyes to see and ears to hear; the understanding that heals Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. These are the two witnesses; anointed with the Holy Spirit. Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Jesus is the tree of life. You can partake of the tree of life. Here’s how. Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. His commandments are His word. You can’t keep his commandments if you do not know His Word; man’s doctrine will smother the truth. Don’t let any man rob you of His word. They may rob you of eternal life. Come out of the confusion by getting into His word. _______________________________________ References and Further Study: God refers to men as trees: Isa 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Look also at the trees of the wood; forest; field in Isa 7:2; 10:19; 44:14 and 55:12 Don’t touch that tree!

Look at what happened to this tree: Ezek 31:10-12 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height; 11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness. 12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him. Ezek 31:15-16 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him. 16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth. Come out of confusion: Deliver yourself! Zechariah 2:7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. ________________________ MEN AS TREES IN THE MINOR PROPHETS Hosea 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved. The teacher prophets (9:8)were a snare; false teachings led to apostasy; the people threw their blessings away. They were throwing away their inheritance. Hosea 14:6 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon. Hosea 14:8 Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found. The fatherless find mercy in Him (14:3-5) He is an evergreen tree; in Him we are able to bear fruit Joel 1:7 He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white. The people are stripped bare; they are drunk on false doctrines. The new wine is cut off from them. They are told to sober up. Traditions have put them to sleep! Compare this (1:6) to Rev 9 the instead of Christ rises to power; people stung in the head with false doctrine; letting their heritage go; not knowing the Word and plan of God. Joel 1:12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men. Vine dressers (1:11)-the people who feed the trees aren’t doing their job; no Truth - no true spiritual food for people. Joel 1:19 O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. These trees are burned. Our god is a consuming fire. People pay the price in anguish, pain and disappointment because they don’t get into the meat of God’s word. Joel 2:22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. For some the latter rains come; for those who tell God they love him and get into His word. These trees enjoy the fruit of their labor. There is rapid ripening of fruit in that five month period. Seeds planted now come to fruition. Amos 4:9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. One city got rain while another didn’t (4:4). Wherever you are, God will rain on you if you study God’s word with understanding. But in the famine you will never get enough from those who make the word of God void. Even in the famine, and though smitten, there are many trees for whom there is no self examination, no repentance, no exercising of the mind. Not even a thank you for the Father. Nahum 2:3 The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken. Some trees will be terribly shaken when the supernatural chariots arrive. Many won’t make it without the truth. Many just won’t make it. Nahum 3:12 All thy strong holds shall be like fig trees with the firstripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater. The trees blossom with false doctrine and think they’re doing pretty good. But it will be too late. God allows them to fall into the hands of the instead of Christ. Read the rest of Nahum. It looks familiar if you’ve read Rev. 9. Hab 3:17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Remember the cursed fig tree? A particular fig-tree - no flowers and no fruit. Depends on who you are; false doctrine trees bear no fruit, for all their works they lead the unsuspecting to the camp of the instead-of-Christ. Good figs produce fruit by planting the true seed; others are thrown in the fire. The threshing is coming: but there is joy in salvation for those who understand it. Hag 2:19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. Exercise your mind here (2:15). The seed is the word. It is not to be kept in the barn- rather it is sown to produce a harvest; in due season plant the seed and the word will produce fruit. Even to the spiritually asleep or dead. Look around they’re not far from you! Zech 1:8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. Many are asleep or dead who think in their hearts they are getting by pretty good. But the moth is eating at the fabric of their life. God puts holes in their buckets to get their attention. The myrtle trees are the brush trees used to scent the booths at succoth. The angels provide us with intelligence as to the state of affairs at the end. Zech 1:10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. 11. And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest. The angels explain they were sent to find out if the time is right; but they report the world is already at peace. The trees think Christ is already here….. Their eyes are closed. Mark 8:23-25 23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. 24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. 25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

  11. According to the word of God, there will be no Rapture!

    The dead in Christ are already with God in Heaven,when He returns,they come with Him,those alive at that time shall be changed to like those coming back with Christ.
  12. Spiritual or Physical Death

    Mark 8:24 "And he looked up, and "I see men as trees, walking." The lesson here deals with trees, the trees that go way back to the garden of Eden. The tree of life, who is Christ, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, who is Satan. Can you see the fig tree and the men filling the roles of the parable of the fig tree? The trees were not fuzzy, but they were clear, Jesus was teaching a lesson, and the lesson deals with all the lessons whereby people are used as trees. Back in Ezekiel 31 God used trees to explain exactly what would take place in the last generation. Satan the Assyrian presented himself to be the mighty cedar of Lebanon, higher than all the other boughs or branches, and the cedars of the garden of God, he tried to hide his identity. All of the other trees admired this mighty cedar, but in the end this mighty cedar will be cut down. It was talking about our generation, and the trees of this lesson are people. Jesus is asking us, do you see the lesson that I am trying to present to you, do you understand? This is how you gain the eyes to see, when you look at the types that are presented to you. Jesus Christ used symbols and types to teach us and give us more than He would say in Words, and those with eyes to see with understanding will look beyond for the deeper meanings.
  13. Spiritual or Physical Death

    Oh,but they did die on that day Genesis 2:17 "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." "In the day that thou eatest" gives us the key to understand man's physical span of life. For Peter gives us the key to this understanding in II Peter 3:8; "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." No man has ever exceeded the thousand year period, not even "Methuselah" who lived "nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died." [Genesis 5:27] That's why nobody ever lived pass 1000 years...
  14. Defense of the Pre Trib Rapture

    The locust army are the fallen angels that get kicked out of Heaven with satan. They are the 7000 that will die instantly at the return of Christ.
  15. The Meaning of 666, The Reason for the Riddle

    Revelation 13:18 "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Wisdom comes from knowledge, and all wisdom is from God, from wisdom comes understanding. We were told to "count the number of the beast". This was written in Greek, and the Greek word means more then counting numbers. You simple can't understand this meaning if you don't understand this Greek word. The word is #5585 in Strong's Greek dictionary, and it means to "calculate by counting the stones that are warn smooth over a long period of time." What stones? We were told in chapter two, we would receive a new stone with a new name written on it. This word "count" originated from that word "stone" of chapter two of the book of Genesis. These are the only places in the Bible this word for count, or stone is used. So we must enumerate, or calculate these stones worn smooth over a long period of time. "Their rock is not our Rock, and his stones are not our Stones," is what the overcomers will sing, as the "Song of Moses tells us in Deuteronomy 32. God is our Rock, and Satan is the false rock, but which stones are we to count? The stones are the number of man, that man is Satan, and if you know Satan you will know his children. Those stones are his children . The "mark of the beast" number [6-6-6] then is to count, or know Satan's children over a long period of time. They are the "Kenites", the offspring of Cain Jesus said in Revelation 2 and 3 that the Churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia were the only acceptable churches to Him, because they knew who the Kenites were. The Kenites were "those who said they were Jews, and lied; because they were of the synagogue of Satan". The seven churches are the seven types of churches existing in these last days. Five are not acceptable to God, while the two are.
