Interesting things in the Bible
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible, consisting of sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, was divinely inspired (God-breathed); that has God for its Author, salvation for its end and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us; and therefore is and shall remain to the end of the world, the only rule of Christian faith and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried. We use the King James Version of the Bible because it is the closest to the original Hebrew & Greek texts and the divinely preserved Word of God in the English language.
Psalm 12:6 “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.”
THE ONE TRUE GOD
We believe the Scriptures teach that there is one and only one living and true God, an infinite and intelligent Spirit, the Creator and Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all worship, honor and praise; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit), equal in all divine attributes and executing distinct but harmonious offices.
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who receive Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. We believe that He was begotten by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary in a miraculous manner, and that He is both the Son of God and God the Son. We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, His bodily ascension into heaven and His bodily presence there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
Hebrews 7:25-27 “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”
THE STATE OF MAN
We believe the scriptures teach that man was created in the image of God in innocence under the law of his Creator, but by voluntary transgression he fell from that holy and happy state and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are now sinners by birth and by choice, being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God.
Romans 5:18-21 “Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover, the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so, might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
We believe the Scriptures teach that the Lord Jesus Christ, according to the will of the Father, assumed our nature, yet without sin; that by His death He became the propitiation (satisfied the wrath of the Father against us) for our sins; that having risen from the dead, He is now enthroned in heaven and is a victorious, compassionate and all-sufficient Savior; and that all who receive Him are justified on the grounds of faith alone, receiving forgiveness by His shed blood; that they are thereby children of God and are eternally saved, being kept by the power of God.
John 3:16-18 “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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 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.”
SATAN OR THE DEVIL
We believe the Scriptures teach that Satan is literal and personal, the agent of the fall, the prince and power of the air, the god of this world and that he shall be condemned to eternal judgment in the Lake of Fire.
Revelation 20:10 “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
RETURN OF CHRIST
We believe in the “Blessed Hope” – the personal, bodily, pre-tribulation, pre-millennial and imminent (at-any-moment) return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Matthew 24:44 “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
A Look at the Future Series
Look Up: Redemption in this Generation
As we approach the consummation of the age, there seems to be a great interest in the timing of the end of the world. Nostradamus’ prophecies included a prediction that the world will end in 2016. Nostradamus, (1503 to 1566) also predicts that strange planetary positions and other astronomical changes will cause major changes on earth. Some expect meteor strikes will end all life on the planet. Others fear an Alien invasion. The top seven scientific theories of how the world will end are:
Eruption of a Super Volcano; Explosion of a Massive Star; Spread of Deadly Disease;
Deployment of Nuclear Weapons; Global Warming; Computer Takeover or the Death of the Sun
Others fear Biological warfare, Solar storm and a man-made black hole made by the Cern Super Collider.
The television and movie industries are producing programs asking what people would do if they knew the world would end soon. Hollywood loves disaster movies of aliens attacking and destroying the Earth. Mini-series about deadly viruses, wiping out the world populations and the ways the world could end are being advertised.
Wanting to know about the end of the world is nothing new. Each of the last twenty centuries has philosophers or prophets warning that the end is near. But they have all been wrong. The only correct answer can come from the creator of the Universe, Himself. The Earth does have an expiration date. It was not made to last forever. However, nothing man can made or do can destroy the earth. The disciples, just before His crucifixion, ask Jesus the same question.
“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” Matthew 24:3
I try to show prophesies from long ago and their fulfillment's, in order to convey the message, that God knows the end from the beginning and that He gave the prophets knowledge of events centuries before they happened. Now, 2000 years after Christ we can see the End Times prophecies of the Bible being fulfilled. I have included a lot of scripture in this manuscript because God’s word says what He means and His word will not return to Him void.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28
God’s Word is 100% accurate 100% of the time.
Look Out: The World Without Christians
A Look at the Future Series
There are four chapters in the Bible where Satan’s influence is not seen. These are Genesis one and two which occur before the fall of man and Revelation twenty-one and twenty-two that describes the glories of the millennial kingdom and heaven after the judgment of Satan.
Jesus is the First and the Last, the Beginning and End, and thus knows the complete history, past, present, and future until time ends.
Since the time of creation, Satan has been in a constant battle against God to overthrow his control of the earth and mankind. This battle will not end until Satan is wholly defeated and judged by being cast into the lake of the fire for eternity. In the meantime, he continually battles to gain control of God’s creation and place himself as the God of this world. I began a series of three books to inform those living in the end times of what to expect as God brings rescue to his saints and judgment to his enemies.
In my first book on the subject of the end times titled “Lookup: Redemption in this Generation,” I tried to explain the world situation at the time when Christ will return for his church. Commonly called the rapture. This writing deals with the preparation and events of the seven-year period when God brings judgment to the unbelieving on earth and reclaims the world that Adam gave to Satan when he sinned against God. A third book titled “Look Around: The Glories of God’s New World” is planned to follow.
How as we close this period of human history we need to know what God has planned for the near and far future. If you believe that Jesus died for your sins and reconciled you with God, then you should be looking for the rapture of the church and Jesus’ glorious return to take us to be with him. If you don’t believe this, then it’s time to prepare for the terrible time I head for those who dwell on the earth. God’s judgment is about to fall. So you either need to Look Up or Look Out.
“Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” 2 Thessalonians 2:5-10
A Look at the Future Series
Jesus is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, and thus knows the complete world history, past, present, and future time ends.
Since the time of creation, Satan has been in a constant battle against God to overthrow His control of the Earth and humanity. This battle will not end until Satan is defeated, judged, and being punished in the Lake of the Fire for eternity. In the meantime, he battles to gain control of God’s creation and place himself as the God of this world. He will succeed and rule the world for a short seven-year period of hell on earth before Yeshua; the Messiah sentences him to the Lake of Fire.
I began a series of three books in 2016 to inform those living in the End Times of what to expect as God brings rescue to His saints and judgment to His enemies.
In my first book, about the End Times titled “Lookup: Redemption in this Generation,” I tried to explain the world situation at the time when Christ will return for the Church. Commonly called the Rapture.
The second writing, “Look Out: The World without Christians,” deals with the preparation for and the events of the seven years when God brings judgment to the unbelieving on Earth, ending Satan's rule and reclaiming the world Adam gave to Satan when he rebelled against God.
This third book titled “Look Around: God’s New World Order” is about life in the Millennium, the one-thousand-year reign of Christ on earth, and also our eternal home in Heaven.
Now, as we close this period of human history, we need to know what God has planned for the near and distant future. If you believe that Jesus died for your sins and reconciled you with Jehovah God, then you should look for the Rapture of the Church and Jesus’ glorious return to take us to be with Him.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3.
If you don’t believe this, then it’s time to prepare for the terrible time ahead for those who dwell on the Earth. The seven years of God’s judgment is about to fall. So now you need to either Look Up or Look Out.
The Dispensations of the Earth:
“New Testament thoughts are derived from traditional Judaism and understand that the first 6,000 years is known as the present age/world (Olam Hazeh). These first 6,000 years are divided into three distinct 2,000-year periods of time or ages:
1) The first 2,000 years from the creation of Adam to the time of Abraham is known as the period/age of innocence where no Written Torah existed, and all Torah were passed down from generation to generation, thus the Oral Torah.
2) The next two thousand years from the time of Abraham to the expected arrival of the Jewish Moshiach ben Yosef (Jesus son of Joseph) is known as the period/age of the Letter of the Torah. Meaning if you willfully break the Instructions, and it is observed by two witnesses, you die.
3) The final 2,000 years of time within the 6,000 years of the present/age world is known as the days of the Messiah (Yemot Mashiach), as from when Moshiach came to correctly explain the Torah and is classified as Under the Grace of the Torah. Meaning that Moshiach paid the death penalty for His adherents who are now under His grace, but still adhering to Torah. There is no physical governmental death penalty now for violating Torah, but continuing to break Torah willfully will result is spiritual death (Heb 10:26).
4) The last 1,000 years is known as the Messianic Era or the future age/coming where the Temple will be rebuilt, and each Instruction of the Torah will be in full effect again. This is when Moshiach will rule the world with a rod of iron (Rev 2:27, 12:5, 19:15). Thus the 7,000-year plan of Ha-Shem (the Name) is a major concept and foundational truth in understanding Bible prophecy and eschatology. Prof. (Dr.) WA. Liebenberg.
If you know the Lord as your Saviour, then you can look for 1,000 years of peace on Earth in which God will remake the Earth to be like Eden. Then after God judges those born in the Millenium and passes judgment on all sinners of all ages at the Great White Throne judgment, you can spend eternity Looking Around the new Heaven and New Earth. (Rev 21:1).
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” Revelation 21:1.
