  1. You do err my friend, please consider that The City could not be arrayed in fine linen which signifies the washing of Christ's Blood (the righteousness of saints or us). The City's dimensions, materials and appearance are then given in complete detail and contradict your misinterpretation of this passage. The new Jerusalem is the Place our Lord told us He was going to prepare for us so that where He is as the Bridegroom, we shall be as His Bride and His Body (the two: Christ and His Church = ONE FLESH) Living together. the Bride already occupying New Jerusalem at the vision's future time and certainly NOT the Cities foundations/walls/mansions/street my friend.
  2. Oh dear madame, there absolutely is, the bride is the Body and the Body, the bride...please consider the evidence from Mr. Hadley which is certainly applicable and relevant but here is the clincher, if you have eyes to see: Our Lord compares Himself and the church age believers with earthly husbands and wives in Ephesians 5: [22] Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. [23] For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. [24] Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. [25] Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; [26] That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, [27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. [28] So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. [29] For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: [30] For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. [31] For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife (BRIDE), and they two shall be one flesh (one body). Just like one body Jesus mentions above, we are all the BODY OF CHRIST. Joined together with Him as one flesh AS HIS BRIDE [32] This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

  3. You are right friend. After Trump's removal there will only be dictatorship from the left. The main stream media outlets seem to maintain unprecedented bias against Trump since 2016 with no sign of slowing down. But is this bias toward Trump personal or is it really toward his policies of National Sovereignty? What if this bias is not some harmless political rivalry or struggle for control? Seems that is getting clearer and clearer in the media. Seems like the majority of the world's richest men and their political pawns have embraced open-border global socialism and hate Trump for being the only significant world leader against it. If you pay attention closely to the left's narratives it appears that the globalist's owned media's goal is to remove national sovereignty from the public's mindset plain and simple. In order to win this battle, the left must remove Trump or more specifically, the national sovereignty mindset from the world. Consider for a moment what the big deal is about Trump? The economy is better now than under the previous President. The military is stronger, the jobless rate is significantly down. The world isn't on fire like the main stream media keeps claiming it is. Has the media through unspecific repetition brainwashed the weak minded with the idea that Trump is a racist and criminal and evil. When confronted with questions as to what specifically he has said or done to demonstrate that he is a racist or criminal or evil, they simply repeat that he is. Read this and you might see what is really going on.
  4. Oh dear friend, you site no distinction in Scripture between believers and disciples. Your post is the error so many in these last days are poisoned with and then inoculated from the true Gospel of our Lord. It is merely a vaccine against God's transforming Grace. The Gospel of Jesus Christ must be real in the heart and believed in the heart. It becomes false when presented to be believed merely in the intellect surrounding the facts of our Lord's Sacrifice for us. You must stop counted the costs of true belief for others to not offend their flesh so that they can keep all the cares of this world and still count themselves "saved". If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. It is a fictional "gospel" that places a vail over hearts to the New Testament.
  5. Amen Sister, you understand correctly. We must all agree with our Lord or we are condemned already. Scripture is clear throughout the NT, if we truly place our faith in the finished work of Christ, we are born of the Spirit and will want within our hearts to follow our Lord in word and deed. Doesn't mean success all the time but the "want" will be in our hearts from that day until our last day on this earth.
  6. Nowhere in Scripture does God ever make a separating distinction between a "believer" and a "disciple". They are always presented as one-in-the-same. Not only in the Gospels of Christ but throughout the entirety of the New Testament when studied in verse, chapter and Book context as God intended. This is the "good seed" mentioned in the parables of the "sower" and "tare". A believer in Scripture is always a disciple or follower of Christ. We (current believers or disciples) "make" new disciples or followers of Christ by teaching them the Gospel of Christ as He presented it, which absolutely includes teaching them to follow everything Christ Himself taught as Christ taught it. Problem is 99% presently do not teach what Christ taught. This false gospel is derived from cleverly plucked-out and isolated passages from the New Testament Church Epistles (Romans-Thessalonians), distorted and turned into bad seed resulting in whole churches and denominations of tares lead by tares. Even in the first century, this non-transforming false "gospel" appeared and God corrected men's distortions of the Church Epistles with the General Epistles: 2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. Some weed sects are far more religious in "Jesus Name" than others but all teach similar distortions of Christ's Gospel message. The more religious or strict of these sects promote will worship as evidence of a "new birth" but continue in their natural state, having no interest in being like their Lord. They misuse His Name having a form of godliness but denying the Power thereof. These are hearers of His Word but not doers of His Word, deceiving themselves. They have neither been taught to nor given the desire to overcome the world. These are "born" of men's tradition and not born of God. They do the traditions taught them by their hirelings very well however. They stop of the activities of the world they are taught to stop by men but keep the true lusts of the flesh and the world in religious form...pride, envy, covetousness....all the things of the world God hates the most just as the pharisees did in our Lord's day. True faith causes the regeneration of the Spirit into a new man. We then become the greatest paradox of history. The new inside the old. The Spirit of Christ within the spirit of man. The continuous battle then begins. It is the battle against the nature of man to overcome the world as Christ Himself did. Regardless of their devotion to their new religious rules, their “church” or their “pastor” they are UNBELIEVERS in the New Testament of Christ.
  7. You and I are here for a reason. We have always known this fact. We were all born with an inherent knowledge of God the Creator. God declares it in Romans chapter One and we all felt it as children. Puberty came and the world lured us in and overtook our inherent knowledge of God. This is how it has always been regardless of time period, location or culture. If you are reading this then there is still time for you to repent (change your misconception of God and your true purpose for existence) and return to the True God of all creation, the God of the Holy Bible. You know the Book this current world hates the most and it shows if you are paying any attention at all. You know this deep in your heart, you always have. Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. When Jesus started His ministry 2000 years ago, The first words from His Mouth were these: Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand! Try to imagine how God feels. The One who made us in His very own Image for one purpose only: to walk in life with Him as His grateful friends (please think about this for a moment). Fast forward to now when most of the world refuses to believe in or even acknowledge Him in any way!! They will soon want to even outlaw His Name. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Our time here physically is not our life dear friends, it is merely our "interview" or "audition" for eternity. Eternity will be our true lives. We will spend it in one place or another. Either with our Lord Jesus Christ or the opposite and as far away as one can be from God: "cast into outer darkness, a Lake of Fire where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth for eternity". Through Christ's Sacrifice for us, the Just for the unjust, we have forgiveness of sins and peace with God. Just as insulting, many of these rebellious people purposely ignore God's instructions and write their own. I am referring to all known religions existing today. God made us in His Image to communicate with Him, fully acknowledging His Glory. Our sole purpose for existence is this and this alone. Sadly for most, true and everlasting peace and happiness will never be known without it. Now, having said that and knowing what you know about this God-denying world system we live in, do you still think Hell is unfair for all people who forget GOD? That is wishful thinking friends and YOU are running out of time..... God's offer of mercy is fleeting. He made all things so why is it so hard to understand that he made the rules: Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one can go to Heaven without Him. Have you ever wondered why you get that retreat feeling when others speak of Jesus? It is because you are missing a piece of yourself and never knew it. God is a Trinity, Three personages in One. God made only us the same way as Himself. He made no other creature like Himself. Father, Son, Holy Spirit Body, soul, Spirit Adam and Eve through their disobedience caused the Spirit part of man to die, as in: Dead to God. It can only return to life again when we obey the Gospel message Christ Himself taught which I am about to relay to you. As you are right now, my dear friends, you will not escape torment in hell. It is inevitable for you if you do not seek God now. All who truly seek Me will find Me, saith the Lord. We feel that retreat feeling because we are spiritually dead in sins. The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit, neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. We don’t want to speak of God because our spirit is dead, we can’t understand the Bible because our spirit is dead, we avoid or make fun of those who do identify with Christ because our spirit is dead. Our spirit is the part of us that can talk to and listen to God. Until our spirit is brought to life by belief, we cannot understand Him and He will not hear our prayers. John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Are you familiar with the term Gospel? Do you know what It is?: God created Hell for the devil and his angels, not for us originally and long before He made Adam & Eve. However, because Adam and Eve sinned by believing the devil over God, all born after them were born missing this third and most critical piece God originally made man with. Unless we follow God's Gospel message we will never get this critical piece of us back from God. Without this spirit friends, we are cursed to go into outer darkness, a lake of fire, burning with brimstone where there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth in pain for all eternity. Where bodies do not get consumed and the fire is never put out. Many foolish who call themselves "wise" say that if God is real he wouldn't send any of his "children" to hell. If you have read this far, your own common sense has already shown you that He does and that none of us are His Children without that missing piece of us restored. Jesus taught us that by His Very Nature, He cannot forgive unbelief in Him. He taught us this "belief" is the type of faith in Him that causes a new-found desire to follow Him and His teachings the rest of the days of our lives. This type of Faith finally reveals our true purpose for existing. God created everything except one: Sin. - He created us in His Image - He gave us all good things - But sin has brought in all bad things on the earth Remember: He made us in His Image, both female and male because He wanted grateful followers and friends. Our Spirit is reborn by the Holy Spirit The Son of God is the personality of God, just like our soul is our personality. Similar to our bodies, The Father encompasses or surrounds all of it. Whenever the Bible speaks of made up "gods" and there are thousands all over the world, God always says the same thing: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God. This includes all the anti-god type religions; humanism, satanism, atheism, scientology, etc. He wants you to hear the Gospel clearly. He wants you to live Spiritually now communicating with Him and give Him Glory in Heaven for eternity. This is the definition of human happiness and the peace of God that all can receive if they truly are seeking His Truth. Because your spirit is dead, your new life and redemption from hell can only be obtained individually by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ. He is our only way to Heaven and to escape the judgment of hell. Don't rush to give lip service to this my friends. Our Lord MEANT THE EXACT OPPOSITE of lip service, please keep reading. Much of the world believes on an emotional level John 3:16 but that doesn't redeem them individually to God. Only when a person claims it for themselves in pure belief "as a child" Jesus said (a child has no pride when confronted because of their sin). John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17, For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18, He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is your future without Jesus Christ as your personal Savior: If you die in your sins without having your sins covered by Christ's blood then you will be judged based solely on your own merits and how they compare to the Books of the New Testament. The verdict from this Judgment determines your level of individual torment in the Lake of Fire for ever and ever. Make no mistake however, all who die in their sins will be in torment. The Judgment described below merely determines the extremity of torment for eternity. Rev 20: 11-15 11, And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12, And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (the books mentioned here are the New Testament Books of The Bible for our current time period.) 13, And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14, And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15, And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (All the secrets of your hearts will be revealed; every idle word spoken during your lifetimes and you will give account of it all to God). Every chance you had to seek after God through His Gospel will be played back to you. I will be there also but not for Judgment, I will be there as a witness against all those I knew of in life who never trusted Christ. Every born again believer will also be there as witnesses against those of their lifetimes. There will be no escape, no reprieve, no more chances! It will be TOO LATE. You will for the first time in your life understand what the word regret means. Mark 9:43, And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:3 44, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45, And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:4 46, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47, And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:5 48, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. the lost dead carcasses will be in hell burning, their souls intact and conscious. DONT YOU GET IT YET? The Lord is saying that when you open your eyes in hell at the end of this life, you will look back and frantically wish that you would have listened and believed. You will realize then the Words of our Lord: that you would have gladly cut out your eyes and cut off your feet and lived blind and maimed than come to this horrible torment for eternity. Listen to Jesus: Luke 12:5, But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. 19, There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20, And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22, And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23, And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, Then said one unto him, Lord Jesus, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. The real question if you have read to this point is this: Is my heart good ground to hear this right now? If much of what you have read so far has rattled your heart a little. If it is causing an uneasiness about reality and your real future, DO NOT suppress it. This is the Holy Spirit pricking at your heart, urging you to keep going. I highly recommend that you keep reading and follow the instructions at the bottom of this article. Without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. While you still have time, you must acknowledge your personal guilt of unbelief and lack of acknowledgment of Him. Presenting yourself to God in childlike fear, believing on Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, who died, was buried and rose again from the dead to pay the penalty for all of your sins. Knowing by full disclosure from our Lord Jesus Christ that believing on Him will result in our worldly lives being crucified for Him. For no servant is greater than His Master, if they have hated me, they will also hate you. This is the will of God. There must be sincere sorrow to God and the seeking of His Mercy or you are wasting your time. If you are not serious you will get no instruction from me on how to pretend to be. But, if you truly are serious then soon you will know you were Born Again by the Spirit of God because your eyes will be opened to the truth and you will have a new found desire and ability to learn of God in His Bible. It will be a hunger like a new born baby wants milk, you will want the "sincere Milk of the Word of God" so you can grow the spirit part of you (just awakened) thereby (I Peter 2:2). Remember that third part of you has been dead to God, lying dormant all of your life but through your belief, it is now given life or a new birth as God calls it. It (your spirit) is just a baby and that baby can only be fed by the Word of God. If you have no desire to feed your baby spirit, do you honestly and sincerely think there is life in your spirit? Really? You do? This is the key to assurance (keep reading). We all have free will, it is your right to not believe any of this. However, there are no unbelievers in hell, they are all believers now BUT IT IS TOO LATE. They quickly discover that they purposely confused their 70-year trial period down here with their real life that will live somewhere for all eternity. Hell contains all people (including the religious) who refused to believe and obey the Gospel as clearly revealed in the Bible. He created us originally in the garden to commune with, worship and serve Him. This is human happiness defined. His only purpose in our salvation is to restore this relationship upon the new birth. Once this relationship is restored, we will never be ashamed of Christ and His Word preaching Him to all others. God made us in His image to be His friends, He wants as many of us to be His friends as possible. THIS IS WHY HE SENT HIS SON TO BE THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD. Sin ended this relationship immediately. His Will is for this relationship to be restored. Not when the believer dies, but now, while we are here on earth physically. He has never saved anyone to continue to live for this world (the temporary) in any way. He saves us so we can commune with Him as our Father now, our citizenship changes to Heaven and is no longer of this earth in our hearts, minds and actions. This means true believers have an irresistible urge to learn God's New Testament. True believers will want to know more about the Lord and will want to follow Him more and more as time goes on. No one can come unto the Father through Christ's Sacrifice EXCEPT The Holy Spirit draw them. The drawing by the Spirit is unmistakable by its inexplain-ability. Convinced or convicted is the word God uses. Now that you have read the real Gospel carefully, do you feel drawn to it? Convicted by it? Once you truly believe this wonderful Gospel Message, you will hunger for more knowledge of God and this comes only from His Bible. Our Lord's last and greatest command to all who shall believe on Him through the end of this age was this: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Information on baptizing is at the bottom of this page. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. The only way to know exactly what Jesus taught is by listening to Him. I mean intently listening in sincere hunger for His Truth. You can do this right here on this website. At least two hours a day, listen to God's Word. Following these instructions: Listen to all the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) first and repeat them five times in a row consecutively. Then the Book of Acts five times in a row, then the remainder of the New Testament Epistles (Romans all the way through Jude). Repeat them five times, then you will be far readier for the Book of Revelation than you ever thought you could be. You will be assured of the Spirit's presence as you understand more and more by God's Word and God's Spirit (Like He said in John 3:8). God made clear that "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God". You will truly understand what this means as you discover new truths every time you intently listen praying for the Holy Spirit's Guidance. Soon you will know that peace that HE KNOWS YOU. Listening to His Word defines clearly every context of the Scriptures. Eventually, after repetitive listening and walking with God in His Word, you will connect dots you never imagined before and see His Word from a strategic viewpoint. Be baptized as soon as possible.
  8. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of God: This type of Bible study is never mentioned by satan's careful design but is the central theme of Scripture (Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the Mouth of God). No matter where you feel you are in your walk with God this study program will change you. Even the most seemingly solidly grounded of believers will benefit from this little idea, it is guaranteed by God. Faith comes by HEARING and hearing by the Word of God. Hearing God's Word without the commentary (tradition) that makes the Word of none effect. Try this, let the Spirit guide you in all truth. Although seemingly mundane as far as systems of belief go, no big shots names to elevate, no frills, no flash, no commentary or merchandise to buy, only God's Word in the archaic, hard to understand King James English. Find Scourby narrated KJV New Testament Books on youtube and you are ready to begin. God's Word is the ultimate test of your faith. If you are truly seeking God's Truth, He will reveal it to you so listen as if your life depends upon it (because it probably does). To start, set aside all time you normally devote to sermon/commentary study and divert it all to this: Listen to all the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) first and repeat them five times in a row consecutively. Then the Book of Acts five times in a row. Then the remainder of the New Testament Epistles (Romans all the way through Jude). Repeat them five times. By this time you will be far more prepared for the Book of Revelation than you ever thought you could be. You will be assured of the Spirit's presence as you understand more and more by God's Word and God's Spirit (Like He said in John 3:8). God made clear that "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God". You will truly understand what this means as you discover new truths every time you intently listen praying for the Holy Spirit's Guidance. You will find yourself pausing the script and opening your Bible, saying to yourself - I never saw nor ever heard this before in its true context. Soon you will know that peace that HE KNOWS YOU. You will discover whether your house was built on sand (wolves in sheep's clothing doctrine) or on the Solid Rock of Christ's teachings. Soon you will clearly see every teaching of Christ rephrased, reiterated and reinforced throughout all the Epistles and Revelation. Then repeat this whole plan again and again. You will understand finally what it Scripturally means to walk with God. Listening to His Word defines clearly every context of the Scriptures. When context is truly captured so will the definitions of every archaic word. You will see how context provides definition in every single case. After repetitive listening and walking with God in His Word, The Spirit will connect dots you never imagined before and you will see His Word from a strategic viewpoint. The Spirit of Truth will become clear as it debunks the previous spirit of error. You may very well discover that God's Opinion differs greatly from the opinions you previously had regardless of sect or system. If sincere, the likely affect will be that you will find yourself being freed from the system of belief or camp you were brainwashed into. AND YES, I do mean brainwashed. In most cases, this will save your eternal life. You will see that most if not all doctrine you stood so vehemently for is not found in contextual New Testament Scripture. All I am pleading with you to do is to listen only to God's Word. Without gimmicks or opinion. There is a strong chance most who read this have never received enough of His Word, unadulterated. Even the most self-proclaimed Mature Christians typically equate Bible Study with sermon/commentary study, reverting to Scripture merely as reference instead of The Bread of Life. This is your chance to see just how far you have been led astray from God's Truth. Devote hours daily, including your commutes to this and this only. Saturate yourself in His Word and you will find the peace of God from God, not from men's plucked out, false assurances. Take this challenge, what do you have to lose besides yourself and your loved ones..... No matter how smart you are, how formally educated, how theological you think you are, DO THIS and decide for yourself if this is or is not the KEY to everything..... Listen to God's Word
