And Then The End Will Come

When will the end come?
Get your stuff ready, build the shelter, hoard the food, live like nothing matters….            all a farce.
In every generation, many have been fooled by someone that can sell you a bridge with your name on it. Let’s face it false teachers selling their agendas on end time events are gaining popularity as more and more people are being duped into their agenda, they make a feeble attempt to match up the Bible with their “opinion” on when these events will take place- “Did you see that thing in the sky?” Or “How about all these earth quakes, hurricanes and floods?” And so on and so on-this has the effect of placing fear/anxiety/hopelessness in the hearts of people who don’t know the truth of the Bible.
Matthew 24:36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Brothers & Sisters if you don’t know the Bible you will be tricked into believing and buying these false teachings. There is no sequence of numbers, blood moons, natural disasters or potential wars- Jesus says these are birth pains and tells us to look for the signs,
Matthew 24:4-8
 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

Confirmations that we are getting closer:
– False Messiah’s (false teachings, anyone who leads you away from God) Some will fall away from God and follow false teachings of spirituality/growth potential/positive influencers or pastors following their own agenda and twisting the truth of the Bible.
– Nations are gathering against Israel, boycotting their products and services, the UN vote to block the move of the embassy to Jerusalem and the ongoing Gaza boarder war. You can read more on this link: https://www.timesofisrael.com/the-10-most-anti-semitic-countries/
Many countries are defending and gathering together to go against Israel, what we must do is to watch watch and wait for what will be coming next.
– Persecution
Jesus continues on to say that those who are Christians will be persecuted, which is happening now more than ever. The morals and values in which we seek are not God honoring.
Matthew 24:9-13 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
If faced with the decision to worship Jesus or be thrown in jail, possibly put to death, many will run, trying to save their lives. God is still in control and the gospel will continue to be preached all over the world, regardless of what people think, say or do.

-Anti-christ
Jesus tells us clearly the anti-christ will stand in the holy place (temple) in Israel and proclaim he is God, (He will be highly regarded and people will think he is the savior) that is when things begin to accelerate. Many will fall away and be deceived by great “signs & wonders.”
Matthew 24:14-25 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation, (Anti-Christ) spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.  Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!  Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.  At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.

Jesus tells us immediately after those days
Matthew 24:30-31  
“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Jesus concludes in Matthew 24:32-34 by saying to be aware of the sign of the times, be aware of what is happening in the world around you. He says : Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will never pass away.” That gives us the knowledge to continue serving and looking for Him everyday. Stay in prayer, these days are getting harder for us, the world is turning from God and looking to their own lives for comfort, no matter what happens you know that Jesus promises you eternal life when you worship Him. Stand on that truth everyday brethren, He shall return and when He does the judgement will fall on those who have turned away from God.

Put It Through The Strain Test

Have you ever read something that was very enticing and then later realized it was not true?

~Have you ever watched a speaker and thought, yea that’s the way I feel and later realize that the purpose of the speaker was to lure you into their book buying, agenda and following?

~Have you ever read a fact that was true then someone put their own “take on it” and make it seem true?

This is all called misleading. When someone or something takes your full attention away from God or the Bible and then that becomes your truth, which is not God’s, and you are mislead and taken away from truly knowing God.

Yes, some will even go to the Bible, point you to scriptures making them palatable, then twist it to their own teaching to entice you to want even more.

1 Peter 2:1 

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves.

Many people are being mislead by a speaker, teacher, self called-prophet or pastor that has a program and somehow throws Jesus into their teaching and doesn’t always point to Jesus being the way, this is also misleading.

 It is always wonderful to have devotions, hear about someone who has healed through the healing power of Christ but the truth is the Bible is the source and whoever trusts in something that isn’t fallible as the Bible is, but is misguided to their own truths then that is a sin in itself.

Put everything you ingest in your mind through a strain test.

 Does this person profit from and promote their agenda?

Do they point you to the Bible over their own work?

 Do they point to Jesus in every aspect of teaching?

 Do they call themselves prophets moving people towards a certain “word” for them or healing and enticing you to want more (similar to luring of a psychic’s deception). You will know if the Holy Spirit is speaking to your heart by the way it has been presented to you from a humble perspective.

1 John 4:1

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Do some say “The End is coming soon” and give you a time or date?

Mark 13:32

The Day and Hour Unknown

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

And…..

Revelation 3:10

 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Do they say “victory” over circumstances?

Jesus said we will have trials but to be an overcomer;

 John 16:33

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

 Take the time to think through things you are taking in, and allowing that to be your truth, follow Jesus, not people, things or objects.

Exodus 34:17

“Do not make any idols.

And…..

1 John 5:21

Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.

Shalom

False Prophets

These days are getting pretty intense, as we see many things that are against God. But   we must stand firm in the word of God, do not waver. Because many people will be claiming that they are true prophets but they are not, they are false teachers and how you know is they will slip and say something that isn’t what God says, it’s their own philosophy. Don’t be fooled because they preach a sermon or book title that has their own ideas in it. So the questions you must ask are:

Is what they say line up with what God says?

Are they promoting their book or way and profiting by it?

Are they promoting Jesus and urging you to follow Him?

Do they seem to have the answer and you don’t confirm this with what God says?

Does the speaker or teacher lead you into wanting to know more about God?

Do they ask for a $ amount to sow a seed in their ministry and say that God will bless you double portion or some other way, amount?

Do you have a relationship with Jesus?

Do you think if you go to church every week but still don’t know Jesus intimately will save you or get you into Heaven?

Do you think praying to saints will get you into Heaven?

Do you seek God on an everyday basis and pray?

Do they promise Victory?

If you put your faith in false teaching, you are deceived and don’t have the kind of relationship that Jesus wants to be in with you today. Stop reading garbage, start reading the Bible and fill your mind with God’s promises! You can and will live in peace. But that does not mean that you will not face trials, but when you are in the trial and you have the word of God, you know how to handle it. The anxiety isn’t there because you know who fights your battles. Don’t look to the world for the answer, look to God.

What does the Bible say about False Teachers

Todays message short but to the point.

Occasionally I will run into someone who will tell me that they have gone to a Tarot card reader or listened to some false psychic on Tv or wherever. The Bible clearly tells us not to follow such ways, That is against God, it’s one of His first Commandments-“Don’t put any false gods before me.” Following these false people is following deceptive spirits that do not come from God our Father, stop trusting people for informational about your future and start trusting God who is the creator of all.    Shalom

Hebrews 4:14
That is why we have a great High Priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus the Son of God. Let us cling to him and never stop trusting him. (NLT)
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and people. He is the man Christ Jesus. (NLT)
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do. (NLT)
2 Peter 1:3
As we know Jesus better, his divine power gives us everything we need for living a godly life. He has called us to receive his own glory and goodness! (NLT)

Are psychic experiences of talking with the dead real?
Yes, I believe they can be very real, but not true experiences of talking with dead people. The Bible considers these experiences to be associated with deceiving spirits, demons, angels of light or counterfeits for the true Spirit of God.

1 Timothy 4:1
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. (NIV)
1 Corinthians 10:20-21
No, not at all. What I am saying is that these sacrifices are offered to demons, not to God. And I don’t want any of you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons, too. (NLT)
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
But I am not surprised! Even Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder his servants can also do it by pretending to be godly ministers. In the end they will get every bit of punishment their wicked deeds deserve. (NLT)
2 Thessalonians 2:9-10
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. (NIV)
What about Saul, Samuel and the witch of Endor?

There is one somewhat confusing account in Scripture that seems to be the ‘exception to the rule’ in 1 Samuel 28:1–25. After the death of the prophet Samuel, King Saul was terrified of the threatening Philistine army and desperate to know the Lord’s will. In his helpless desperation, he resorted to consulting with a medium, the witch of Endor.
Using demonic powers of sorcery, she called up Samuel. But when he appeared, even she was startled, for she had expected a satanic apparition and not Samuel himself. Shocked that God had intervened for Saul, the witch of Endor knew this “spirit coming up out of the ground” was not the result of her demonic conjuring.

So, Samuel’s appearance here can only be explained as the unprecedented intervention of the Lord in response to Saul’s hopeless desperation, permitting him one firm and final encounter with the prophet. The event in no way indicates God’s endorsement of talking to the dead or consulting with mediums.

In fact, Saul is condemned for these actions in 1 Chronicles 10:13-14: “Saul died because he was unfaithful to the Lord; he did not keep the word of the Lord and even consulted a medium for guidance, and did not inquire of the Lord. So the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.” (NIV)

God has repeatedly made it clear in his Word that guidance is never to be obtained from mediums, physics or sorcerers, but rather, from the Lord himself.

Gods Wrath

The planet is in an uproar.

Gods wrath is upon us now. If we are to be humble unto Him we must ask for forgiveness of our sins and prepare ourselves for what may happen in the future days. Our abundance does not fit into the picture of the hereafter but all that follow the Lord will be saved from ultimate destruction of their soul. But if we hold onto this life with all we have, we will surely lose it for the day of the Lord is at hand. Don’t be afraid to reach out and pray at any given moment because He hears all you ask Him for. But in humbleness remember that all is seen by Him and nothing is hidden, rebuke false teachers and look only to Jesus for whatever your needs are. In humbleness and prayer AMEN!!
