DR. EPHRAIM KWAKU AMU

wp-1577717343772.jpgDr Ephraim Kwaku Amu was a famous Ghanaian composer, musictechnologist and teacher. He was born, 13 September 1899 at Peki-Avetile or Abenase in Peki in the Volta Region a male child born on Wednesday, Kwaku. His father Stephen Amuyaa Papa Stenafo was woodcarver, mother Sarah Akoram Ama. Ephraim was baptised by Rev. Rudolf Mallet, 22 October 1899. Amu in May 1906 aged 12 at the Peki-Blengo E.P. Boarding Middle School shows his interest in music and agriculture. Enjoyed music played in church by Mr Karl Theodore Ntem who played organ. Amu’s teacher of music on organ in return for work on Mr Ntem’s farm on Saturdays taught him  music he loved and did agriculture. In 1915/16 year, Amu passed the standard 7 School Leaving Certificate and Abetifi teachers Seminary Exams. With others walk 150 miles from Peki to Abetifi with boxes on head to start teacher training education. They rest at Koforidua, and NkawkawAsubone and Obomen. In college joined 25 others, Amu saw some students classmates had steel bicycles built his own bicycle from wood carved from a wooden slab in the bush near college.wp-1577730979485.jpgwp-1577717366195.jpgwp-1577719597840.jpgwp-1577717355385.jpgwp-1577717377384.jpgThe students discovered his handiwork named it Amu. It is on record the son of Swiss principal, Stern, enjoyed rides on Amu wooden cycle. Amu’s ingenuity led to carved wooden balls for their school games, which replaced imported balls used at the seminary. Amu completed his four-year teacher-catechist training in 1919. Newly graduating as a teacher-catechist, was one of the two preachers selected in the pulpit on behalf of fellow mates to preach to express appreciation to the tutors and townsfolk. The sermon was an assessment of the quality of the theological training offered to students. Amu chose sermon text from Matthew 25:40 for occasion themed, “the LORD will thank you for all the good you do for HIS little ones.” Amu used Twi and Ewe in his short sermon. Amu is known for his use atenteben, Ghanaian bamboo flute he promoted and popularized the instrument throughout the country, and composed music for it. Amu composed “Yen Ara Asase Ni” -This is our own land a nationally acclaimed patriotic song is performed at national functions.wp-1577717331895.jpgIn 1926 Amu transferred on promotion to the Presbyterian Mission Seminary at Akropong on recommendation of the Synod Committee of the Eʋe Presbyteria Hame. At Akropong, in his new ways of doing things, actions, ideas, unorthodox. In charge of gardening request students to use waste to manure college farm the students unpleased it was a taboo for an educated man to waste. Proved example carried waste to college farm ahead of unwilling students. Dr. Ephraim Amu employed no one to sweep his rooms, wash his plates or run errands for him. No manual work too menial or hard for him, believed in using African cultural artefacts and good African technological and social inventions. He preferred title Owura to “mister” prefix to his name. Dr Ephraim Amu selected Twi names for four new college dormitories completed in 1929. On request from Mr Ferguson Principal of Akropong Training college, Amu came out with a solfa and notation of street song “Yaa Amponsa” set to his own chaste words. His students enjoyed the new song, melody and new words. The street ballad Yaa Amponsa, popular with great appeal and appreciation.wp-1577717317363.jpgAmu learnt to speak correct Akuapem Twi from the members of his Akropong Church singing band who specialised in Amu’s type of African music during the period he led and taught the group. In 1927, inspired by the contents of Wasu, a journal published by the West African Students’ Union, Amu decided he would wear African dress with pride. So not to wear warm those unsuitable European clothes in the tropical Africa. He made efforts to make Christian church service meaningful to African worshippers who were ashamed of their African clothing, language, music or their African names. As part of his ingenuity and creativity Amu introduced bamboo odurogyaba, odurogya and atɛtɛnbɛn. In 1931 after Amu preached wearing African attire on Sunday, he was summoned to appear before the church court. Rev. Peter Hall told Amu, “We were taken aback to see you conduct a Sunday service in native cloth hope you will not do this again.” Amu in his polite manner took leave of the church session but decided in his heart to continue to work in the church as a catechist and music teacher than to become minister of the Gospel to accept wearing unsuitable European dress. In June 1942, Amu married Beatrice Yao and presented a wooden box made of the finest wood instead of an imported steel trunk to his bride. Dr Amu married at the age of 43 on 3 September 1942.wp-1577718179380.jpgDr Amu drove a truck almost similar to this with metal frames he drove around. On Saturday, 27 March 1965, University of Ghana conferred honorary degree of Doctor of Music on Ephraim Amu at University of Ghana, Legon. An Ephraim Amu Foundation was founded in 1995 launched in 2004 in his honour. Blessed to know Dr Ephraim Amu and visited his hometown to attend his son and his daughter in law friend whose wedding we attended. We knew Dr Ephraim Amu for five years in visits to his beautiful home. He is one of the great Pan African pioneers who did his part for Africa quietly in humility allowing his music and lifestyle to speak for itself. As the Ghanaians say, “a good quality product sells itself” without any attempt of spin doctor bulldozing inferior item sold. Dr Ephraim Amu did his best in life left his wonderful legacy of promoting African music, drum cultural values important to him. Dr Amu Day is celebrated as global icon ambassador of African costume culture, music, drums, organic agricultural production. He led by example, so extremely hardworking and it is a privilege to personally meet and know Dr Ephraim Amu’s works of music. He is acknowledged on currency of Ghana as a citizen who stood up for his country and traditions. Above all he loved God as a living testimony for all to see in humility to the Glory of God. Too young to fully understand or appreciate his Pan African cultural views, grateful and thankful for his life as Ho Technical college renamed after Dr Ephraim Amu.wp-1577727243415.jpgDr Amu’s music is underway by Galaxy Music imprint of ECS publishing Group, released three titles introducing non-Ghanaian choirs to his work to stir up interest in the wider corpus. A quarter of Dr Amu’s works is published in five collections out of print. Though some scores missing, autograph manuscripts fill most of void but are unpublishable. With his daughter Misonu Amu is being developed into a new edition of Amu’s scores through a process of comparing primary sources published and versions of audio recordings in consultation with Ghanaian members of team intimately familiar with Amu’s music performance practice. This new six-volume of critical performance edition will present works according to voicing. Thirty titles per volume organized as follows: 1-3) three volumes SATB scores, 4) A volume TTBB scores 5) Volume unison/duet/trio work 6) one volume instrumental pieces.

Amu’s music is classified into three distinct styles: Early period (1920-1937), middle period (1937-1951), third period (1952-1996). Early work is simple diatonic chords. Songs use duple, triple effect patterns: Biakoye (Unity), Israel Hene (King of Israel), Abibirimma (African Sons) Akwaabadwon (Welcome Song Hail Victors). Middle period works polyrhythmic polyphonic textures show fine music. Amu’s polyphonie textures in Ghanaian languages foundation for his works: Adawura Bome (Play for Me). Akyede Pa Mafo (Giver of Good Things). Amu’s works melo-rhythmic idiom of instrument music effective in writing songs vocals: Adawura Bome  (S.A.T.B.)

Dr Amu composed the next song below based on the traditional craft of Kente weaving of Ghanaian national costume. Vibrant colours of fabrics of the textiles is so bright and techniques of weaving sounds so rhythmic he composed next song. Kente is impressive but expensive was originally worn only by kings and queens for centuries. Made popular by leaders now available to all to wear on special occasions. In memory of Dr Amu Ghanaians wear cultural costumes on Fridays to work to celebrate their independence from colonialism. Still under economic yoke Dr Amu will not be amused would compose a new song.

JESUS UNITES ALL IN ISRAEL

90500fe1f11caa60e2a3d9081508b74c--christian-encouragement-bible-verses.jpg
Galatians 3:26-28 says not a Jew, Gentile, Greek, SLAVE, free, MALE, FEMALE ALL ARE ONE IN CHRIST JESUS. In the Bible Jesus Christ of Nazareth came to SAVE to redeem ALL FAMILIES in Christ. God created all black and white people equal in God’s Kingdom, no rank, class, status. SOVEREIGN GOD JEHOVAH and CHRIST JESUS are Ultimate Authority all submit to in ETERNAL LIFE. So Matthew 22:30 says after resurrection people DO NOT MARRY so no virgins to marry. Glorified body is like angels in heaven in eternal life so no need to marry, to give birth to replenish earth in future. All restored to youthful bodies, healed, live perfectly healthy lives eternally. Love is directed totally first to God and to Jesus Christ flowing through all people. There is no need to seek fulfilment through a human being because all are fulfilled in Christ Jesus. The supernatural love God fills mankind with is superior to human love. All LOVE comes from God through Jesus the Bridegroom, enriched deeply in Christ Jesus Alone in eternal life. So human romance pales in comparison to GOD’S DEEPEST LOVE BEYOND human understanding in terms of earthly love. Earthly love is full of disappointment, pain, hurt and grief. A Heavenly LOVE yet fully experienced on earth glimpses of true love found here, there on earth.4bdde64e26478018c275ab2ae84328d6.jpgPERFECT LOVE after GLORIOUS BODY IS FOUND IN CHRIST so no human can provide angelic love for glorified body higher being in Christ Jesus. ETERNAL LIFE IN GOD’S PRESENCE is NO HATRED VENGEANCE, Bitterness or vendetta for only the PURE IN HEART FULL OF LOVE ENTER GOD’S PRESENCE. GOD IS LOVE in heaven no evil on earth exists after judgement BY JEHOVAH. Only the sheep enter heaven and goats are thrown out into hellfire burning forever. A banquet by KING MASTER JESUS for all no slaves IN HEAVEN. Emancipate yourself from the arrogant mental slavery justifying abuse of people in THE NAME of God. Vengeance belongs to Jehovah to meet out so stop misleading the people with twisted lies misquoting Bible to deceive naive vulnerable people. Only Jesus is able to Comfort us and restore PERFECT PEACE we crave because human love is limited. Be content, so grateful, thankful for families you feel not good for you. It is God who puts people in families for a reason. Trust God with your family and AVOID ANYONE WHO DIVIDES FAMILY! 29131.jpgJesus the Messiah is surrounded by His mother, father siblings in His Ministry on earth and in heaven with Jesus. Any Church that divides family is a cult for manipulation naive members to control them by CUTTING OFF from loved ones who SEE THROUGH FAKE PASTORS. The fake pastor deceives people for control weakens them without back up support challenging controlling behaviour. They fear families standing up to stop abuse so anyone who knows the Bible well or confronts them is blackmailed and also vilified to subdue members. They make examples of people to humiliate them to put fear in them to become ZOMBIES or robots they control. Beware of anyone twisting BIBLE to CONTROL your life because who the SON JESUS SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED!!! God is LOVE and by love people know you are the children of God.  Jesus LOVE YOUR ENEMIES do good to those who hate you and do not inherit enmity and hatred from a bitter miserable people preaching evil hatred.  God’s promise to Abraham the land of Israel is a BLESSING to ALL NATIONS.Galatians_3-28.jpgIn Genesis 12:2; 18:18; 22:17–18; 26:3–4 God fulfilled promise to Abraham, first in the nation of Israel then all nations. Israel’s technological, agricultural, and medical innovations, advances help all people in the world. God’s greatest meaningful fulfillment of covenant promise is Word of God Jewish people gave all world. God faithfully protects and brought Israel’s eternal salvation through faith in Jesus the Messiah. So Father God in Lord Jesus Messiah by His great mercy Christians born agains are raised the Messiah from dead. To live in future is a great expectation of priceless inheritance in heaven, pure, undefiled, beyond death and decay. Through faith, God protects by HIS power to endure to end, receive crown of life 1 Peter 1:3–5.  God’s destiny for Abraham to become the father of MULTITUDE of NATIONS includes Gentile nations fulfilled in Jesus, a direct descendant of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob Israel in Matthew 1:2–17.  God LOVES people of all tribes, tongues, nationalities, languages in Jesus as heirs of Abraham and joint heir with Christ.

imageGod’s joint heirs are kings and priests of God in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; you are ALL ONE IN MESSIAH YESHUA. In MESSIAH you are Abraham’s seed heirs according to promise in Galatians 3:2729. Today know Jesus better by READING BIBLE to STUDY LIKE BEREANS not just do what so called fake control freak cult pastors order you to do to manipulate your life. Messiah Jesus is coming to decide your reward based on if you are HIS SHEEP. Not what the fake prophet misquoted in Bible designed to lie to you because you lack knowledge. God says  MY PEOPLE are destroyed for lack of knowledge of Bible. God says Study to show yourself APPROVED TO GOD not show off Bible verses you memorized. But APPLY the Bible to each need you have, read the specific TEXT daily to meet your need.Galatians+3_26-28.jpgEach one faces God alone on judgement day so remember God will not ask about what the pastor told you. God demands account of your PERSONAL LIFE not the total social media number of followers, bank accounts, mansions, private jets, size of your family, your status, class, colour or race. Each person must share Gospel to DIRECT PEOPLE TO GOD IN CHRIST. The Church you attend or the denomination  is IRRELEVANT TO GOD. Letter to seven Churches in Bible warns Churches. Israel and Jewish people are ONE IN CHRIST JESUS to fulfill all God’s feasts, prophecies covenant promises.  Isaiah 27:6 says, God will cause them that come of Jacob to take root Israel shall blossom and bud to fill the face of the world with fruit. The people of Israel return from parts of the world  their ancestors dispersed take root. The land is blessed and people blessed in the world. Israel’s desert desolate is a major exporter of food to the world. The crops are major export by companies in Israel Isaiah predicted. Isaiah predicted in the Word of God over 2,600 years ago fruit of the land blessing Earth with physical food exported and fruits of God’s Word confirms by Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus. Matthew+1-22+To+Fulfill+What+Was+Spokne+By+The+Lord+Through+Prophets+red.jpg Zechariah says all nations on earth will come yearly to Israel to celebrate Feast of Tabernacles to worship LORD of Hosts. Zechariah 14:16. Isaiah points to road connecting Egypt to Assyria and through this area access road is being built called King’s Highway. Building a super highways links them with all the surrounding nations. These prophesies of Isaiah and Zechariah prepares way in advance in time for Messiah’s rule from His Throne in Israel. Jesus Rules whole Earth and all people will know God in the millennial kingdom in Israel after rapture and His second coming on earth after Armageddon. The land is prepared today to fulfil prophecy of Messiah Jesus as KING of Kings and Lord of lords. And above all countless multitudes of people of all nations, tribes, languages, colours, BELONGS TOGETHER IN HEAVEN AND LATER DWELL ON EARTH WITH GOD. God is not a respecter of persons to put any person above others by class, race, colour, wealth or status. Death is their leveller making all equal before God. No man is bigger or stronger than Jehovah God no matter how powerful they may feel in own eyes to inflate their ego.

JESUS’ VICTORY OVER beast

1555606685258-1635185667.jpgAfter 70 weeks of Daniel, the invasion of Israel by the Northern Confederacy will bring the beast and his armies to defend Israel as her protector. Daniel 11:40-45 explains campaign of the King of South moving against beast and false prophet coalition during end – times. The King of the South goes to battle with North King and the Northern Confederacy in Daniel 11:40. Jerusalem is destroyed with those armies of the Northern Confederacy. So armies of beast move to Israel in Daniel 11:41 and conquer a territory in Daniel 11:41–42. Edom, Moab, Ammon escape but beast hears defeat and will move his headquarters to Israel and assemble his army there. The destruction of the beast happens in Daniel 11:45 in the battle of Armageddon as a final war between the human governments and God opposers.15630994714081721717133229740671.jpgGod refuses to allow evil rule in Psalms 2:2. Stock market chaos credit crunch of banks, currencies, commodities plunge world into a full-scale global economic crisis. The impending economic collapse pushes all nations into WWIII. Massive thermonuclear destruction becomes a reality. God sent prophets to all nations for entire nations to take heed, listen be spared total destruction. God is warning nations of what is about to be unleashed upon the world. God will end mankind’s self-rule. God will intervene and stop all mankind annihilating themselves. Their control of God’s material possessions is the crux of the matter of conflict. So God steps as those nations destroy one-third of civilisation. Mankind cannot govern themself properly or take care of earth God gave us. Billions die in worst times in history but God saves His Children or nobody on the earth will survive beast.  15630992247998294664339643058409.jpgMankind self-destructs but will not wipe God’s creation. The new earth in Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21 : 1 will be restore to perfect Godly world and the new heaven will come down to the earth despite GREAT TRIBULATION destruction. Battle of Armageddon will bring human rule to end in Daniel 2:​44 after beast is killed. Armageddon in the Bible Revelation 16:16 will happens in a place in Israel. As the “kings of the earth gather together to war against Israel in a GREAT DAY of the LORD Jehovah, God Almighty in Revelation 16:14 sends back Jesus Christ to lead heavenly army into VICTORY. God’s enemies led by beast in Revelation 19:11-​16; 19-​21 are defeated.  God’s enemies oppose GOD AUTHORITY treat God with contempt in Ezekiel 39:7. 1438998346.jpgSo battle of Armageddon is in Jeremiah 25:32-​34; Ezekiel 39:17-​20. Armageddon  Har-​Magedon called Har Meghiddohn in history had decisive battles fought there in Bible in Judges 5:​19, 20;2 Kings 9:​27; 23:29. As Armageddon nations assemble against God’s rule, God uses HIS POWER of hailstorm, earthquake, flood, drought wildfire, sulfur, tsunami, locust, plagues thunder, lightning and diseases says Job 38:22,23;  Ezekiel 38:19, 22; Habakkuk 3:​10,11;  Zechariah 14:12. God’s enemies kill each other not realising God uses a friendly fire to fight against themselves in ​Ezekiel 38:21, 23; Zechariah 14:13, in Psalm 37:29; 96:10; Ecclesiastes1:4. And God’s servants survive in Revelations 7:​9, 14; Psalm 37:34 on earth. This world’s wicked human societies opposing God in 1 John 2:​15-​17 will fight Armageddon war to end old for new in Matthew 24:3.15630983504011911803044281208281.jpg Great tribulation culminates in battle of Armageddon. Jesus said: “that day, hour or time nobody knows, not the angels of heavens or the Son but ONLY the Father in Matthew 24:21, 36-37. Christian, Jews, apocalypse millennialists based on Book of Revelation, 20:1-6 recall the witnesses of Christ’s ascension to heaven after His death and resurrection. They heard the angels said in Acts 1:11, “Men of Galilee why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus taken from you to heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven.” The Second Coming is literal return of Jesus Christ on earth as KING given POWER and GLORY to rule forever. For the first thousand years in Revelation 20:1-6 the prophets understand this. So His Second Coming in Isaiah 7:14; 9:6-7; Zachariah 14:4 says Jesus, Messiah fulfilled all Old Testament prophecy of Second Coming.wp-1555524314418..jpgChrist fulfilled prophecies and He took our place to receive penalty of our sins. His Second Coming defeats sin eternally. Before Jesus’ Second Coming is Rapture  and Jesus will come to remove believers from earth in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54. So Second Coming of Jesus Christ’s return to earth defeats devil beast to establish His reign of true, justice, peace forever. His Kingdom has no end but all left behind after rapture will face an evil world. 2 Thessalonians 2: 11 says “lawlessness” held in check by Holy Spirit restraint taken out of world. Without born-again believers. Christian workers in all hospitals, nursing homes, schools, or orphanages, rescue missions relief agencies, and those Christian law enforcement, social worker, healthcare, churches, empty no service community. So beast takes total control of the earth and evil rampage throughout the world.15630997180605653887137399502081.jpgRemaining believers in Divinely sealed, protected in Revelation 12:13-17. Then satan energizes beast and false prophet to kill people not protected by mark of Christ in “a time times and half a time.” God’s wrath judgment continues on the rebellious in world in Revelations 6-16. Lukewarm Christians in Revelations 3: 15, 16, Hebrews 6:12 are left behind in GREAT Tribulation after Rapture. They will experience “judgments” of God in 1 Corinthians 11:31,32 due to carnality or apathy, unbelief in God. The rescue plan in Christ is Rapture to stop the evil beast action so chastened by LORD’s wrath in Revelation 7:13. During the seven years of GREAT TRIBULATION in Zephaniah 1:14-18 is great day of the LORD so near with the mighty man will cry bitterly. It is a day of wrath, trouble distress, of waste desolation, thick darkness, gloom, clouds A day of trumpet, alarm against fenced cities, high towers, distress, so men walk like blind men, because of sin against the LORD their blood poured out as dust and their flesh as dung. No silver or gold can deliver them in day of the LORD’S wrath. 15630984696873664185974283265186.jpgThe whole land is devoured by the fire of His jealousy to make speedy riddance of their dwelling in land. Zephaniah 1:14-18 messages of judgment depict future Day of the LORD on the world. Matthew 24:21-22 says “time of trouble” mankind in GREAT TRIBULATION unseen before since beginning of the world to this time, will not be seen ever after. And except the evil days are shortened then no one will be saved: but the for elect’s sake evil days will shortened by God in Jesus Name. The Rapture intervenes to rescue those who believe in God to provide great escape alive into heaven in presence of God. In  Zephaniah and Matthew 24 those left behind after the rapture will experience GREAT tribulation never seen upon this earth. Luke 21:22-27 says, the vengeance of God will be fulfilled, woe to those with child or gives suck in those days for there shall be great distress in land and wrath upon people. Some fall by edge of sword, led away captive in all nations. Jerusalem trodden down by the Gentiles, until times of the Gentiles fulfilled. There are signs in the sun, moon stars and on earth distress of nations, perplexity; the sea and waves roaring; Men’s hearts fail by fear looking at things on earth, powers of heaven are shaken. They will see Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.1555072645994513078032.jpg1555538259811570340261.jpgAfter rapture all nations on earth are in chaos turmoil and governments seek to restore civil order to regain economic equilibrium. Profound shifts of power take places, EU is the new superpower, America’s power authority is lost people in key positions suffer. Prophecy, says a man will profess a plan to quell fears of war in Middle East in Daniel 9:27. The prophecy in Revelation 6:2 says a rider on white horse gives fake peace. Peace Covenant Confirmed by great world leader will arrive in time in seven-year peace deal plan. Israel agrees to a fake peace deal with enemies so whole world accept leader’s masterplan. But Israel’s acceptance offends God as the covenant is made with death and hell says Isaiah 28 causing God’s judgment and wrath to begin to fall on world. Israel signs peace treaty with a world leader, an antiChrist marks start of the GREAT TRIBULATION in Revelation 6:2. All left behind after the rapture suffer GREAT TRIBULATION in Three and half years. Abomination of desolation takes place in Revelation 13.15630996573531843308702958681808.jpgWhen the beast is authorised by dragon to controls the world, the whole world is filled with wonder follows the beast.  People worship dragon for giving the authority to the beast and boasting ask, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it.  The beast has mouth to say proud words and to blaspheme with authority for forty-two months. Opens mouth to blaspheme God, slander HIS NAME and HIS dwelling place and those in heaven.Given power he wages war  against God’s Holy people and controls them. Has authority over tribes, people, languages, nations. All inhabitants of earth now to worship beast, all whose names are not written in Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb of God Jesus who was slain to save creation. The “New World Order” alliance digitization of money and RFID chips in human beings are the mark of the beast without which none can buy or sell. Makes governments of nations as puppets in the hands of beast consistent with truth that whole world system is under the dragon, god of this world. Image of the beast in Revelation 13:14,15 set up the by antiChrist or false prophet in Matthew 24:11 for enforced global worship, “so he sits in the Temple of God showing himself to be God.”15630986464616513823913677019400.jpgIn 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4” says, “Let no man deceive you that day will not come until a falling away first. The man of sin will be revealed a son of perdition who opposes and exalts himself above God’s worship to sit as god in God’s Temple. It is autocratic power bulldozing way to destroy others to usurp undue power by promoting self-serving interests. Daniel 9:24-27 is a prophecy of seventy weeks after “prince shall come” and antiChrist makes the seven year treaty with Israel. Ancient Temple rebuilt in Jerusalem so worship is established, breaks covenant “in week” to erect “abominations.” And his idol image mock God’s original Holy place God’s Temple. Daniel 9:27Daniel 11:31;12:11 says temple signals unleash fury against Israel by those who refuse to worship Jehovah Adonai Elohim. And Revelation 11:1-14 says two witnesses in sackcloth identified as Elijah and Moses. Elijah called down fire from heaven in 2 Kings 1:9-15 consumed groups of 50 soldiers destroyed by arrogance. Elijah ‘who stands before God’ in 1Kings 18:18-20 called down fire of God in the Mount Carmel contest against Jezebel’s 400 baal worshippers killed on defeat. Elijah had power to shut heaven for three and half years of drought and famine. Moses called down the fire from heavens to consume Koresh and friend’s rebellion against God in Bible in Numbers 16:28, families, assets, cattle, tents destroyed. Moses, ‘God to Pharaoh’s’ ten plagues in Egypt, turned rivers to blood, killed first borns of Egyptians. And Pharaohs army killed in red sea in pursuit of Israelites.  1553364619014-1225479167.jpg15632842282482891926267358376625.jpg15632844185552230623581372484649.jpgTheologians says the two prophets work with 1444,000 Jews before and during  Second Coming of Christ. The Gentiles will trample the court of God’s Temple for 42 months, 1,260 days or 3½ years as the two witnesses prophesy. They are  two olive trees and two lampstands who stand before the LORD God. Will devour all enemies with fire out of their mouths with power over sky, waters strike earth with same plagues in Egypt’s by Moses in Exodus 7. The two witnesses destroy all enemies with fire in Revelation 11:5 like Elijah’s did in 2 Kings 1. Moses and Elijah appeared in Jesus transfiguration in Matthew 17:3–4. Jews expect Moses and Elijah to return, based on prophecy of Elijah’s coming in Malachi 4:5. “I am sending you prophet Elijah before the coming of the great and awesome day of God says Malachi 4:5. God’s promises to raise up prophet Moses in Deuteronomy 18: 15, 18. The Jews believe Moses will return as one of two witnesses. Despite their powerful testimonies beast will overcome them and kill them in war. 15630987725122723277464470281184.jpgThe beast will come from the Abyss and attack them to overpower, kill and slay them. God’s two witnesses, overcomed and killed though undefeated in battles. These two prophesy of God’s judgment against the world but the opposers use weapons at their disposal to kill them. The two witnesses are slain by the beast and false prophets in Revelation 11:7. A short while God’s prophets are slain by the two evil world leaders. Revelations 11:9 prophesies people from all kindred, tongues and nations shall see those dead bodies on the world’s broadcast satellite cable TV networks and internet fulfilled literally. Global television will show the two witnesses martyred who choose not to use supernatural powers so lay down their lives voluntarily fulfills Revelation 11:7 prophecy. Three and half days the people on earth celebrate their death by exchanging gifts for tormenting them, don’t permit two witnesses’ burial, God  Spirit of life enters to resurrects them. Their resurrection puts great fear into all witnessing revival, others give glory to God and they ascend into heaven. In an hour a great earthquake that occurs kills 7000 men destroying tenth of city.1556397177971-1068246670.jpgLed to Great Tribulation war in heaven against satan’s angels Revelation 12:7-13. The war in heaven won by Michael’s angels who fought against dragon; and the dragon fought angels,God prevailed so satan’s place not again in heaven9 the dragon was cast out the old serpent devil satan, deceives whole world, cast out to earth with angels. A loud voice in heaven says now comes salvation, strength and the kingdom of our God and power of his Christ: for accuser of our brethren is cast down for accusing them before our God day and night. 11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; they loved not their lives unto death. 12 Rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of earth and sea. for the devil comes down having great wrath because he has a short time.13  The dragon is cast on earth persecuted woman who brought forth tman child. God stops satan’s evils in Revelation 12:12 to defeat and save manchild safe in heaven. 15632860656613412963579496112170.jpg15632861584245798913428317805070.jpgRevelation 6: 1 Jesus says Lamb of God opens the seals of scroll of seven seal of judgments. Lord Jesus in Hebrews 1: 8, says wrath of God is poured on Christ to save believers in world. The seals are four horsemen of apocalypse, fifth seal cry of martyrs and sixth seal judgments. At end of sixth seal in verses 15-17 the kings of earth, great men, rich men, the commanders, mighty men, slave or free men hide in caves, rocks, mountains, say fall on us and hide us from face of Him who sits on throne and from wrath of Lamb. The great day of Christ Jesus has come, who can stand it?” Judgments of wrath of Lamb Jesus in Revelation 16 and 17:6 not on all who repent, so saved but on all enemies the LORD punish on Day of Lord Jesus in 1 Corinthians 1:8; 5:5; Philippians 1:6, 10; 2:16; and in 2 Thessalonians 2:2. “Day of the LORD” is judgment time of GREAT TRIBULATION and liberation by Christ of His Church in Zechariah 14:1-4. God deals with Israel after rapture of church continued in millennial age preceding creation of new heaven and new earth in Isaiah 65 :17; 66:22; 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1.15630994714081721717133229740671.jpg
The world’s egotistical bully dominates financial and political arena in Daniel 7  is the “man of sin, “little horn” with eyes of man and mouth utters great boasting. He is the megalomaniac in his quest for world power. Daniel says, “through his peace negotiations, sanctions, destroy so many in Daniel 8:25. His authority will be overpowering with intense hatred of people using political techniques for his selfish policies. The news media will not be able to resist covering his moves and outrageous shenanigans. But fools those he deceives so people think evil is good and is good. He controls administrations with techonolgy chips, monitoring facial recognition number. People cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast so he control governments globally. Jesus said he will deceive very elect, if it were possible.” Megalomaniac ego boosted by adulation worshipped by his followers takes seat in temple of God as God. The beast in Temple of God fights God and the Church as the temple of God. Then antiChrist has no restraint, lawlessness already at work. The Lord Jesus will kill him with sword out of his mouth to end antiChrist’s era of world rule. The Holy Spirit works through those on earth and Ephesians 6 tells spiritual forces of evil at work will be destroyed. The invisible supernatural demonic entities deceiving lying will be eliminated. World political wars in Revelation 13:7 cause violence to increase in the world, nation against nation, ethnic cleansing, domestic and global. Men slay one another, peace is removed from earth in Revelation 6:3-4. Poverty inflation and lack of food as wages buy food a day for one person in Revelation 6:5-6. One quarter of earth’s people killed in war, famine, pestilence, wild beast, plagues, viruses and resitant bacteria microbes new infections called malevolent little beasts in Revelation 6:7-8. Many become followers of Jesus killed in Daniel 7:21. Sun is blackened, moon turns red mountains and islands move in Joel 2:30-32. The false sense of security kills one-third on earth and so one-third of trees, green grass is burned by comet or meteors that hits earth and burns houses in Revelation 8:7.           1556397094386776795221.jpgSeas becomes like blood kills one-third sea creatures, destroys one-third ships in Revelation 8:8-9. “Star” Wormwood falls from sky poison one-third all fresh water made bitter, killing many people in Revelation 8:10-11. The sun, moon, stars darkened, day and night reduced to 16 hours not 24 hours in Revelation 8:12. Locusts from underground attack people not followers of Jesus Christ for  5 months in Revelation 9:1-11. Strange creatures will kill one-third of mankind in Revelation 9:13-19. Two witnesses of continue preach Gospel of Jesus Christ for 3 1/2 years but killed midpoint of the 7 year tribulation. Cause the 3 1/2 year world-wide drought killing people. The anti-Christ beast forces all the people to receive mark on right hand or forehead to buy and sell. The beast controls trade wars in socio-cultural, politico economic arena of human activities. All those who received mark will develop a loathsome malignant sore on bodies within a short time in Revelation 13:13-18. The oceans change to blood and so things in sea die in Revelation 16:3. Water is like blood in Revelation 16:4-7. Sun scorch people by fierce heat in Revelation 16:8-9. The anti-Christ’s kingdom of evil falls down in Revelation 16:10-11. Euphrates river dries and the kings of east march west in Revelation16:12. Other armies battle God at Armageddon but mountains and islands disappear. Hailstones crush the armies in Revelation 16:17-22 and 17.  Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1.

A woman wearing purple, scarlet gold, colour, precious stones, pearls a golden cup in hand full of abominations and of her fornication:17:5On her forehead the name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, ABOMINATIONS OF EARTH. The prostitutes rides the fake horse 17:6 drunken with blood of saints, blood of martyrs of Jesus so is the great extent of her idolatry.17:9 Here is mind of wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains the woman sits on. The ten horns are ten kings without kingdom to receive power as kings one hour with beast.17:15 The waters the whore sits are peoples of multitudes, nations, tongues. 17:18 This woman from great city reigns over kings of earth by idolatry. Invades foreign powers as apostate fake head so cast out but continues to falsely claim is the greatest on earth in whole realm. So all the pompous, arrogant, self-serving, greedy selfishness on earth is destroyed by God and Jesus rules forever. HE who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over HIS flock like Shepherd. The LORD delivers Israel and redeems them from hand of those stronger than them says Jeremiah 31:10–11.                  15630981326051763773280836452187.jpg Ezekiel 23:37, Jeremiah 6:2, Gomer wife of Hosea, on the 8th century BC in Bible in Hosea 1:2-3, God told Hosea to marry whore by Divine appointment. So harlot shows relationship between God, Israel, unfaithful church bride depart from the LORD” in Hosea 1:2. Seven mountains in Revelation 17:9 Jerusalem linked to fall of Babylon in Revelation 18 destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD,.Jesus predicted. Jerusalem’s spiritual harlotry in Isaiah 1 : 21; Jeremiah 2:20; 3:1–11; Ezekiel 16:1-43; Ezekiel 23, Galatians 4:25 prophecies in Matthew 23:34–37, Luke 11:47-51. So Jesus talks of killed prophets, saints by Pharisees. Revelation 17:6 and 18:20, 24 on Babylon in Luke 13:33. And so Great earthquake precede Jesus Christ return with His army to claim earth after sixth seal on Tribulation of God’s wrath falls. Christians on earth in initial indignation in Daniel 11:36 are firstfruit Christians in Revelation 3:5,12; James 1:18, 2 and Thessalonians 2:13 Holy Spirit restrains taken before seven years Tribulation in 9:27, 2 Thessalonians 2:6,7, Revelation 3 :10, Isaiah26:19-21. Second resurrection  after thousand year millennium all the dead and living, raised for Great White Throne Judgement in Revelation 20:4,5. in Acts 1:9-11; Luke 24:7, Matthew 27:52, Ephesians 4: 8,9; James 1:18, Luke 21:36; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, 1 Corinthians 15:51,52. The Great Tribulation Harvest after Rapture in Revelation 7:9-14; Luke 17:33,34 by 144000 in Revelation 12:5. 15633007075206732669451495678986.jpgThe 144,000 Jewish Tribes 12 × 12,000 in Revelations 7:4-8; Revelations 12:5; 14:1-5. Martyrs resurrect in Revelations 20:4; Hosea 6:2 Revelations 6:9-11. These are JEWS in the GREAT TRIBULATION God sends angel to seal them on foreheads to protect them from harm and plagues. Revelation 9:4 speaks of creatures from bottomless pit that will hurt “only those not sealed by God or names not written in book of the Lamb. These 144,000 are not hurt by creatures lose things owned, family, property possessions, respect in community glorify Jesus in one purpose, plan and action. With the two witnesses save the great multitudes no man can number from all nations, kindreds, people and tongues, stand before the throne and Lamb, clothed with white robes with palms in their hands; cry with loud voice Salvation belongs to our Lord God who sits on throne and to Lamb. Priestly 144,000 sing “a new song before throne and four living creatures and elders redeemed from earth in Revelation 14:3. They will wear names of Father God and Lamb on their foreheads follow Jesus everywhere He goes in Revelation 14:4. The 144,000 and other righteous people or God’s martyrs refused to submit to beast. So satan kills two witnesses for not giving in to image of beast, rejectors in Revelation 13:7-15. The two witnesses rise up to heaven.    15633164823277312287495775168638.jpg Rules over tribes, tongues, nations wars against people many days fall by sword, fire, captivity and plunder in Daniel 11: 32-33. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Jesus raises dead caught in air to be forever be with the LORD. The 144,000 sealed by God live but righteous ones killed for rejecting mark or the worship of beast. Blood of Jesus Christ purchased 144,000 on cross in Galatians 4:5; Hebrews 9:15-17 and 1 Peter 1:18,19; Acts 20:28 so the overcomers defeat devil by the blood of Lamb Jesus and by their Testimony. The Second Coming of Christ is important to give hope and confidence God controls of all things and is faithful to His Word and promises. In Titus 2:13 we wait for the blessed hope of glorious appearing of our Great God, Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Second Coming of righteous King in Revelations 6 to 18 describes end times world devastation of millions. So people perish when the devil person is ruler of the entire world. The Second Coming of Christ end evil in Revelations 19:15-16. Out of His Mouth comes a sharp sword to strike down nations. He will rule with an iron scepter, tread winepress of fury of wrath of God Almighty. On His robe, on thigh is written KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. Jesus will return in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2. “The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to be gathered to Him we ask you not to be alarmed by report, letter, that the “day the LORD already came. Luke 19:11 states true purpose of Christ’s Kingdom. Micah 5:2; Isaiah 7:14 predict first advent and in Isaiah 53:8–9 suffering dying Messiah Isaiah 53:11–12. In Daniel 9:26, Zechariah 12:10 Messiah will be seen in a second coming by His enemies. Ultimate triumph of Christ, is in Zechariah 9:14–15; 12:10–14; 13:1; 9: 14–15; Amos 9:11–15; Jeremiah 30:18; 32:44; 33:11, 26; and Joel 3:1; to lead Israel into salvation. Deuteronomy 30:3–5 predict Messiah’s final Victory time. In Matthew 24:31; Mark 13:27; Isaiah 52:15 and Isaiah 59-62 Jesus returns to earth.  15631002083904527520435096390214.jpgSome doubt so say, ‘When is He coming as promised since our fathers died still everything goes on like since beginning of the creation” in 2 Peter 3:4. Mockers question the delay of Jesus return but only God KNOWS exact day or the Time. After Jesus comes, an angel descends from heaven with chain and key seizes dragon, ancient serpent, devil, satan binds him a thousand years, throws him into a pit, locked and sealed so he cannot deceive nations any more, let out a little while in Revelations 20:2-3. Jesus seats on throne with saints on earth in Jerusalem so physically reigns a thousand years. Immortality transforms bodies to be like Jesus’ glorious body” in Philippians 3:21. Jesus had a body after resurrection in Luke 24:39–42; and John 20:27. Jesus walked, talked, cooked, ate with disciples. The rest of dead come to life at end of a thousand years. Christ is King and priests of God rule a thousand years in Revelation 20:4-6. So Father God will rule in theocracy in HIS righteous kingdom beyond thousand years. They rebuild Jewish Temple in Jerusalem at the Dome of the Rock to establish Judeo Christian practices according to Book of Ezekiel. God will deal with all nations from Mount Zion on DAY of the LORD so those who oppose God will face wrath of God. Mount Zion will be Holy so there will be deliverance for house of Jacob to possess their possessions says Obadiah 1 :15,17. Obadiah’s vision of the Day of the LORD says the Temple Mount will be recovered, God will REIGN from Mount Zion states Obadiah 15-21. “The Saviour coming to Mount Zion to judge nations and His Kingdom is JEHOVAH’S.” Bible prophecy on Third Temple in Jeremiah 33 says: “The days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘I will fulfil the word spoken about houses of Israel and Judah so a righteous Branch of David spring forth to execute justice and righteousness on earth. Judah and Jerusalem dwell safely called LORD our righteousness. ‘David shall never lack man to sit on throne of HOUSE of Israel or Levitical priest lack man before ME.  I  CHOSE to Consecrate MY Temple, MY NAME is there Forever, MY EYES and MY HEART always there Jehovah God says in 2 Chronicles 7:16.    15587124616321559442597.jpgThe Bible says The Third Temple is built in Israel in Daniel 9:72 as covenant after sacrifice, grain offering was stopped by antiChrist abomination desolations and destruction. Third Temple in Amos 9:11 says “On that day I will restore David’s fallen shelter and repair broken walls, restore ruins and rebuild.” Isaiah 2:2-3 says: “In the last days mountain of the LORD’S Temple will be established at highest mountain exalted above hills and all nations will come and say, Come, let us go to the mountain of the LORD, to TEMPLE of the GOD of Jacob. HE will teach us his ways to walk in HIS paths.’ The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem to all the nations.” The Bible says after Second Coming of Jesus He will set up God’s Kingdom on earth. Jesus and Saints will rule for a thousand years while satan is locked down. The Messianic prophecies fulfil a Building of new Third Temple in Ezekiel 37:26-28 for nations to come to worship God in Jerusalem. Jesus is the Messiah Jews will embrace in fullness of Gospel in a Third God’s Temple. When Jesus Reigns on earth in Jerusalem in Israel people go to worship God in His Temple. Temple is the central governing place headquarters of Jesus Christ. All nations go to worship God in Israel or will have no rain says Zachariah 6:9-15 prophecy. Temple of the LORD is built by Joshua son of Jehozadak. Jesus is Priestly KING in the Temple of the LORD. “The word of the LORD said: Take silver and gold from exiles Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah who arrived from Babylon. Go the same day to house of Josiah Zephaniah’s son. Take silver, gold, make crown and set it on head of high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak. Tell him LORD Almighty says: ‘Here is the man the branch to build Temple of LORD God Jehovah. I am with you says the LORD to save you and make full end of all nations scattered to but not make complete end of Israel in Jeremiah 30:11. God uses Sun scorching heatwaves and the flushfloods, landslides, muds, heavy rains, hailstones, tsunamis, earthquakes, lightning, and volcanoes to destroy God’s enemies, one third of earth and trees. Constant heavy rains trigger earthquakes when huge downpours of the rain triggers earthquakes in landscapes riddled with caves, channels, increasing pressure and underlying rock’s volcano lava flows.       15642183471446130120378383607979.jpg1564219268322628897869590485729.jpg15642190559095203816986085346053.jpg15642187984959206361055200691981.jpg15642189095076554992163666112571.jpg15642922027085740412027390068699.jpgGod’s Covenant promise to offsprings of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob-Israel first, then to all nations “Thus says the LORD God, who gives Sun for day light, moon and stars for light by night, who controls sea and waves roar, The LORD of Hosts is HIS NAME. ‘If sun, moon, stars, depart from earth, says the LORD, ‘then seed of Israel shall cease as a nation before ME forever says Jeremiah 31:35–36. So God blessed Jewish people as secure as sun, moon, stars. God made Israel’s survival  and ultimate salvation secured and all Israel shall be saved. Psalm 83 prophesy says a last day’s confederacy intends to wipe out name of Israel forever. They take crafty counsel against God’s people and consult and said, ‘Come, and let us cut them off as nation so name of Israel remembered no more in Psalm 83:3–4. Israel is protected faithfully not turning away from God. If Israel does not join Baal of Peor anger of the LORD is not aroused against Israel in Numbers 25:3. God’s chosen people worship the pagan gods enrage God resulting in plague that killed 24,000. Balaam’s evil advise to the Midianites ruined Israel seduced by the women in Numbers 31:7–16. Yet God’s LOVE Covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-Israel is eternally nonegotiable.      15632845166136994354567183668109.jpg15634398664748753317748116550906.jpg20190718_095342.jpg903dd54611ea346f4264a77e09b0c0cd.jpg20190718_101739.jpg15633480918696788924042174641079.jpgHe will build Temple of the LORD clothed with majesty to sit and rule on his throne a priest on his throne.’ The crown given to Heldai, Tobijah, Jedaiah and Hen son of Zephaniah is a memorial in Temple of the LORD. Those far away will come and help build Temple of the LORD, you will know the LORD Almighty sent me to you. This will happen if you diligently obey the LORD your God.” The new Temple built by the Branch for Messiah. The Church is part of new temple Jesus is building. God’s House in Jerusalem will be a place of prayer for all nations in Isaiah 56:7; Mark 11:17i. God followers in end time  in Zion Temple on pilgrimage of people to Jerusalem. The temple’s resurrection parallels Jesus’ resurrection and second coming in Mark 13:2, Matthew 24:2, and Luke 21:6. End-time fulfills promise and prophecy on Zion. Jesus said in Matthew 5: 14; 16:18 John 1:42, New Sanctuary in Mark 14:58; Matthew 26:61 is Messianic Temple literally. Believers as Temples of God full of God’s Holy Spirit worship in covenant restoration of Israel. Messiah  in 2 Corinthians 1:20, Daniel  9:27 and 2 Thessalonians 2:4 in physically restored Third temple. Jesus is True Temple God Incarnate, in Him is “all the fullness of God dwells in Colossians 1: 19. Galatians 3:28 says all are one in Messiah and all Israel shall be saved in Christ Jesus.  1563349394548748891648738679019.jpgGod’s Presence Holy of Holies accessed by body of Christ since Jesus died, the “curtain of the Temple tore in two from top to bottom” in Matthew 27 :51. Jesus’ victory means all enter the Holy place through the Blood of Jesus. This living way opens direct access to God through Jesus in Hebrews 10:20. The Messiah’s Temple will not be destroyed for Jesus is eternal. Holy Temple in Lord Jesus says Ephesians 2:19-22, “You are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles, prophets, Christ Jesus Himself as the Chief cornerstone. In Him whole building joined together one Holy Temple in the Lord. In Him you are built together to be dwelling God lives in by His Spirit” says I Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 6:16. In Christ there is no Jew or Gentile all Children of God. God gathers Jews, remnant, lost tribes back to the Land of Israel in Isaiah 43:5-6 forever and ever.  Jesus restores all mankind saved to Father God.                   15633485167427877540236192120997.jpgIMG_20190427_194853.jpg Jesus brings PERFECT PEACE ending the racial hatred of oppression, suffering, diseases, no pain, tears, grief or sorrow anymore. Nation will not lift the sword against another nation nor men learn war anymore says Isaiah 2:4. And the knowledge of the God of Israel unites all humanity as one. God is KING over whole world, that day God is Only Name Jehovah known by all worshippers says Zechariah 14:9. The devil loosed “after a season” goes to deceive Gog and Magog attacks Saints in New Jerusalem but is defeated by God’s judgments of His fire coming from Heaven. God’s Great White Throne judgment of all people takes place casts into Lake of Fire in “second death.” The lost stay in the lake of fire in Revelation 19:20; 20:10,14-15; 21:8. Lake of hell fire in Matthew 25: 41, Matthew 18:8 is unquenchable fire in Mark 9:43-44,46–48 as punishment of the lost who reject God and Jesus. Since Rapture lasts 7 years all saints return to live on earth. All brought nothing into world so take nothing out. Assets or lands left behind used in 1000 years. The New Jerusalem comes down with God, golden mansions from heaven and God dwells physically on the New earth permanently in Israel in Jerusalem. And Jesus said those who lost, houses, lands, loved ones, on earth will receive 100fold lands, houses in this life and in eternal life. Praise God this is why Jesus provides 100fold land, houses if old ones destroyed. New earth under God is PERFECT and everybody KNOWS GOD AND WILL WORSHIP HIM ALONE through Christ. No sin or the rebellious dwell in God’s New Lifestyle in Christ. Give God no rest day or night until HE shortens evil days to make Jerusalem the praise of all nations in Jesus Name.

TREASURED MEMORIES SON

IMG-20190704-WA0003.jpg1 Thessalonians 4:16 says For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. The dead in Christ rise first. The “dead in Christ” are Christians who died before return of Christ. They will rise first and return with Him in 2 Corinthians. 5:8. They are in Christ, because they are saved so the Children of God. Redeemed by Jesus the Son of God boldly enter God’s Presence through the Blood of the Lamb of God in eternal life. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so we will always be with the Lord. COMFORT one another with these words from 1 Thessalonians 4:17-18. And in resurrection all who rise first have glorified bodies, meet with those alive and so will rapture together into heaven.15621665976505611930065235087871.jpgAnd the Lord Jesus Christ Himself will descend from heaven with thousands of angels. At the last trumpet call, the dead in Christ will arise first. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself comes from heaven in the clouds with loud command the dead rise in Christ in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 guaranteed so come back to life. And together with those still alive will go in rapture to heaven as part of our hope in the eternal life. Eagerly waiting for the resurrection knowing RETURN of Christ reunites our families in heaven in the PRESENCE OF GOD. Those who died in God in Christ through salvation of God arise first at the TRUMPET call. All eyes on earth will SEE Jesus SHINING bright as the Sunshine. All in Christ will rejoice exceedingly at this COMING of Christ in rapture and celebrate in Jesus Name.

JESUS RISEN WITH THE DEAD

1555629384060-1313627143.jpgMatthew 27:51-53 says Jesus resurrected with Saints raised from death who came out of the graves and went to Holy City Jerusalem so appeared to many people. The Temple veil was torn, rocks split by earthquakes tombs opened many dead saints were raised from death. So they came out of graves as Christ was raised and went into Jerusalem so alive again.1555626585825-1635185667.jpgMatthew 27:51-53 is clear the dead were alive and so went home to their families seen by over 500 people. Some speculate they ascended into heaven like Jesus did after they were raised from death and seen after their appearances to many. A research of this true story does not talk about them anymore in the Bible after appearances during Jesus’ Resurrection. 1555626945722996338447.jpgThey symbolized and illustrated Christ’s victory over death to confirm God’s gift of the resurrection power of God. Christ defeated death and raised many people during his ministry. Victory over death is again revealed to prove to all that the dead in the grave for years came back to life as God promised will happen in resurrection of the dead for Rapture.1555629260277-160608383.jpgThey were alive not so like zombies or comatose walking dead but came back when the Spirit of life entered them to restore life. They were eating, drinking living normal lives like Jesus did after receiving His Glorified body in physical flesh on the earth. Bodily Resurrection is Life force restored to flesh, James 2:26 Resurrections in the Bible.1555627050162-1313627143.jpgThe Soul gets back into the body, 1 Kings 17:17-23 so the flesh is warmed again as seen in 2 Kings 4:32-35. The Resurrected speak, Luke 7:15 and bodily functions resumed in Luke 8:55; John 11:14, 17. A consciousness is regained in Acts 9:37 so life force is restored to a flesh in James 2:26. Resurrections in the Bible happen often through Jesus and His disciples. 1555627881500-1068246670.jpgThe Resurrection of the dead happens and is well documented in books, and you tube videos for testimonies to the GLORY of God. Again today in real life many churches witness resurrection all over the world of the dead as medically proven and certified dead by doctors. Some wake up in the mortuaries before burial or after in their graves still alive.wp-1555628187783..jpgJesus said the dead will arise so women received their dead back alive because though they died yet they shall live as Christ promised. The living in Luke 24:5 have physical bodies and Luke 24:36-43 says they are not invisible spirits ghosts but conscious, with cognitive physical activity. John 12:1-2 describe the human traits of those raised from the dead.1555627145304-860916511.jpgPeople were raised from death as an act of God’s mercy in Luke 7:12-13 provides confirming evidence of God’s POWER, presence and approval of life extended by the grace of God. Elijah as a prophet in 1 Kings 17:24 received God’s approval alive into God’s PRESENCE. Luke 7:16-17 is similar reason for Matthew 27:52-53 to prove God’s Authoriy over death. 1555627538404776795221.jpgProphets and Jesus already foretold that there will be resurrection here on earth for a reason. Resurrection accomplished increased faith in God’s Miracle POWER so many people believed in John 11:45; 12:10-11, 17-18; Acts 9:42 like Lazarus, Dorcas and saints of Matthew 27: 52-53 are favours of God miracle opportunity to Glorify God in Luke 7:15-16 proves Jesus True Witness Messiah Son of God.1555626657451-160608383.jpgLike Rapture resurrection of the dead to come to live in heaven they continued to live until eventually they died later. In 1 Corinthians 15:22 sees son lived in 1 Kings 17:22 so presented to his mother after raised from death. In Luke 7:15 Lazarus resumed his normal activities in John 12:1-2 they continued to live to ripe old age and succumbed to death.1555627968461990063215-1.jpg Ecclesiastics talks of mankind returned to dust and spirit returned to God after death. And Rapture says in the twinkle of an eye dematerialized body reformed instantly by the miracle POWER of God. It sounds illogical to human minds that a decayed body is restored with organs functions normally again. Supernatural things of God are beyond the analytical thinking process so is received by faith.1555628979164-1635185667.jpgAll in Christ will rise again in Rapture as the Saints did during the resurrection of Jesus. The Saints uplifted faith of those traumatized by Jesus death or suffering in state of fear for their lives. They had seen Jesus raise the dead but somehow could not understand Jesus telling them if his death and resurrection. So miracle helped to assure them of Eternal life in Christ in God’s Kingdom ruled by Jesus.1555630008624-1313627143.jpg1555629650846-1635185667.jpg1555740335876-160608383.jpg1555790225873-160608383.jpgEzekiel predicts the coalition union of return of two nations Israel and Judah in verses 15-22 by two sticks tied. This is symbolic of uniting of Jews and Gentiles in Christ and His Church. The prophet foretells the Kingdom of God in Christ to be set up in Israel and God’s Sanctuary to Glorify and worship God by His Grace in verses 23-28 to fulfill God’s Covenant.IMG_20190420_160925.jpg1555740700579-1313627143.jpgThose resurrected went to their homes in Matthew 27:53 appeared and then ascended into God’s PRESENCE later in paradise. This shows the sting of death had been taken away so lived out their physical lives and died like others raised but Jesus is the exception. In Acts 2:24; Colossians 1:18; Revelations 1:18 Jesus will resurrect the dead bodies in Christ in 1 Corinthians 15:22 together with those alive in Rapture to heaven.1555742807541-1635185667.jpgThe powers and authorities misjudged Jesus and thought killing Him will end the Kingdom of God. The lesson is Christ has Power over physical and spiritual death in John 11:25-26. Christ Jesus is real so have faith in Him and in His Power over death. Revelations 1: 18 says the dead in Chrit will experience first bodily resurrection in Rapture as John 5:28-29 confirms, live forever in eternal life with God, Jesus and family. 1555629445884-860916511.jpgResurrection stops death due to sins of Adam and Eve’s DNA passed into many generations after thousands of years so erased by the Blood of Jesus. In Christ is eternal life of Colossians 2 :12-13 and in Romans 6:4-6. Christ’s Power over both the physical and spiritual death is seen in John 11:25-26 to restore mankind to God. Through Role Model Jesus, nation of Israel returns to God in a life Eternal through Jesus Christ’s Power of defeat over death to live forever in Victory.

FIRE DIDN’T TAKE OUR SOUL

1542541799044-834355254.jpgFire has not taken our souls and that is all that really counts,” Garcia said. “We have people left is more important than any things,” Jones said. But we have lost everything we had because the fire took everything but has not taken our souls and that’s all that really counts,” Garcia said. In the midst of fire adversity and a tragedy is poignant symbols reminding people to be strong in spite of problems. Most going back after the fire destroyed thousands of homes plus other facilities will rebuild the entire town of Paradise. The town was enveloped by “firestorm rained hell down,” said Butte the county sheriff, Kory Honea. There was no time to save whole town because fire spread at the rate greater than a football field in a minute. Focus turned into rescuing people from houses overtaken by flame and Jerry Garcia’s wife, Sharon, wasn’t interested in returning to the town they lived for decades but changed her mind planning on returning to rebuild new Paradise town. Isaiah 43:2 says you pass through the waters God is with you and when you pass through floods it will not overflow you and when you go into fire, it will not burn you. So survivors of fire have been rescued alive despite risks to their lives. Biblical unnatural wildfires are hard to contain due to combination of factors. Bible Signs of the end times of Biblical last days end time prophecy predict fires so complex beyond natural seasonal fires regularly contained. The property and life destroyed by fire and flood really damages communities. Yet in spite of all these natural disasters of earthquakes, floods, wildfires in Bible prophecy news people have hope. And news reports every week talks about a disaster of hurricanes, storms, tempests, fire and flood, disasters by sea and land, globally. Isaiah 43:2 predicts you to pass through the waters, through the floods and fire but God is with you. I can hear you screaming if God is with you why did HE not prevent you passing through the floods or driving, walking through a fire. Floods, fires, famines, droughts and pestilence are the four horsemen riding bringing these upon the earth predicted in the Book of Revelations in the Bible. 1542534847296-834355254.jpgThe coming storms of extreme weather and climate changes intensify terrifying with harzards in the future preceding Rapture and later the Second Coming of Jesus. Apocalypse doomsday tribulation is going since the time of Christ but now floods, tornadoes, locusts are part of the end time birth pangs. Apocalypse, final judgment of man and destruction of the world by fire in Bible imagery is a real event on earth. All people are affected whether religious or not floods, fires, storms, unusual seven thunders in Bible prophecy demands the attention of all the people on the earth. Bible signs are these startling events floods hurricanes, tornadoes, in earthquakes, casualties by sea and land. The Bible says one-third of trees, people will perish due to weather fuelling fires in the last days. Fires get worse due to complex building material and high tech lifestyle links community the houses and closeness of homes. The Word of God warns that the heavens and earth existing are stored up for fire, but kept until the day of judgment and destruction of Great / Tribulations. It is the warning to heed and take seriously because structures must be designed to limit damage to life and property. Fires from thunders, earthquake, hurricane, floods are unpredictable. This is why it is good to prepare for survival or those who lost lives their souls to go back into heaven. This is not the time to be angry at God to blame HIM because thousands of years of warning is given to prepare against such times. Whether religious or not God does what he forewarned and it affects unbelievers lives too. Camp fire named by road near origin is the most destructive fire in state history and the deadliest killing so many people and still so many more unaccounted for. More than 10,000 homes is destroyed by the fire largely in the Paradise town of 27,000. Also gone are 366 commercial buildings and a third of town’s schools. There is so much to rebuild, but before that can begin, authorities must finish sifting through the ashes to find what’s left of those who didn’t make it out in time. Some may never be recovered and returning evacuees may find remains if authorities missed some sheriff warned.1542537330994-1895827285.jpg Still, residents are eager to return home, or at least to the rubble that remains. So how does a town nearly wiped off maps rise from the ashes? It’s a question with no easy answers. Since disaster began, local government officials emphasized the commitment to rebuilding the town, though its location means fire is always a risk. But it will probably take at least five to 10 years to restore the town, and it takes longer for individual residents, said Robert B Olshansky, an expert in post-disaster recovery. Rescue workers search areas to discover the suspected human remains in homes destroyed by Camp Fire Friday in Paradise California. “I’m confident they’re going to rebuild but it’s going to be tough,” Olshansky said. “The people there five years from now may not be same ones now. There are going to be a lot of households for whom it may still be a disaster.”Like pure gold, the refiner’s fire remove dross for a more beautiful and better buildings than before. This refining is to strengthen the enduring human soul or spirit as overcomers in life. Zechariah 13:9 says a third will be through fires to refine them like pure silver to test them as gold is tested. The spirit of grace and of supplications will help those look up to God to deliver and sustain them. And Isaiah 48:10 also states I refined you not as silver and tested you in fire to refine you in the furnace of suffering. Tests by the fire of suffering as silver is refined in a furnace. Like a refiner’s fire people are tested like exams are for promotion to higher spiritual level by the believers desiring God. And the painful sufferings are temporary on the earth compared to the joyful experience of victory. As fire strengthens bricks or wood, silver, gold, God refines mankind as Daniel and friends joined by Jesus in Babylon Iraq survived. Physical fire becomes a symbol of redemption testing a faithful believer to prove love and confidence in God. As Jesus was in the fire with Daniel so by Holy Spirit’s POWER of God, some survived location, speed, help, support of others. Christians who died, the souls go straight to God in heaven for absence from body means presence with God. So Jesus told believers, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire to become spiritually rich, wear white garments, and clothe yourself in righteousness and holiness. God accepts people as they are so call upon God in Jesus Name.1542536081369-834355254.jpgThe town cannot be rebuilt in the way it was federal officials warned the county, but some have hopeful vision for future. Newer schools, a sewer system instead of outdated septic tanks to be safer from fires. “If we are going to rebuild, we are going to rebuild community where this never happens,” said former fire chief’s town evacuation operation coordinator, Jim Broshears. The risk of fire is always present in forest area, high in the Sierra foothills and surrounded by canyons on two sides. The town experienced at least four evacuations due to fire in 10 years. Close to 200 homes lost in 2008 fires. But this was a worst-case scenario. Now, as community prepares to rebuild it must construct safer, more modern buildings, and perhaps look at how its forests are managed, Broshears said. “We have an opportunity to build forest in the model of pre-European settlement conditions,” Broshears said. That is going to be more resilient forest. Currently, the western sierras densely wooded not necessarily the best model for forests to get through fires, said Thomas Scott an expert on wildfire at the University of California, Berkeley. That’s because second-growth forests, woodland regrown after harvest carry fire further and faster than trees there before. Ideas of a pre-Columbian forest generally means not suppressing early summer fires, and removing some younger trees to create a more widely spaced forest. Forest management is not about harvesting trees, but thinning the forest to protect the community. “You get back a more pre-Columbian forest then that means it’s less likely to trap all those people in the town,” Scott said. Even with that approach there will still be fires, they would just be less likely to start at the crest of the sierras and stop at the Central Valley, he said. Fire is a process Californians live with, manage and stop thinking of as a foe, Scott said. The Paradise fire is special case because of sufficient fuels around the city which let the fire come in number of different ways,” Scott said. So homeowners can make properties less vulnerable to fire, ensuring roof not flammable with dried leaves, vegetation or creating defensible space. Fires driven by strong wind can’t be fought but with most fuel in the area burned up Paradise probably safe from fire for awhile but not forever and the rest of the state at risk most of the year. Not wanting to sound heartless, has to accept if you live in burnable landscape, climate changing may be “when” house burns not “if” a house burns,” Scott said. A rescue worker gives her cadaver dog water as they search the Paradise Gardens apartments for victims of the Camp fire in Paradise on Friday.The new Paradise rebuilding starts once the fire, currently burning 221 sq miles at 45% containment, is extinguished, and then hazardous ash and rubble cleaned up, it could take about a year. Butte county is advising residents on what to do when they return but they acknowledge could be weeks or months away. There is almost no gas, electricity, safe water and no emergency services, police station and fire station survived as did the town hall. Air is hazardous, with risk of falling tree limbs ongoing, and what’s left of homes, incinerated belongings and kitchen appliances are probably toxic. Residents are permitted to return but few will have anywhere to stay. The fire destroyed town so chances of successful rebuilding is much higher compared with other natural disasters, Olshansky said, thanks to insurance. As support from state, federal government loans, funding of a Federal Emergency Management Agency, will aid the town in recovery. Including constructing new public buildings Paradise unified school district lost three of nine schools, others sustained significant damage to rebuild. Before the fire residents approved $61m bond to fund buildings and equipments updates. Until students return to schools still standing, district looking at online programs Superintendent Michelle John said. Other school districts volunteered to take additional students. The rescue worker use cadaver dogs as they search Paradise Gardens apartments for more victims of the Camp fire in Paradise on Friday. Schools are key, Olshansky said; residents typically return to areas hit by disaster if schools continue to operate. Challenge in Santa Rosa communities hit by last year’s Tubbs fire, destroyed 3,000 homes. And so finding qualified contractors to rebuild the schools and homes damaged in Paradise estimated at least two to three times Santa Rosa experience, mayor, Jody Jones, said. “So having enough capable contractors to go round not slow things down building is challenge,” Olshansky said. Town is working on streamlining the process of building inspections and permits mayor said looking at support small businesses with high bankruptcy after disasters. It is thinking about the long-term’s tough, decisions the mayor added. The town’s council members, 17 police officers, and dozens of firefighters lost homes along with thousands of others so will rebuild. “We have people, more important than any things,” Jones said. Though lost the sentimental and highly valued material things but it has not taken our souls and that’s all that really counts,” Garcia said. “That’s why we’re going back.” What an amazing statement made because Jesus said real true life does not constitute the material possession accumulated. Years of hard work, sacrifices, generations of inheritance burnt down within last few days. Yet people still cling to love, hope assured knowing mourning may last for night season of painful loss or suffering but joy comes in the morning. May God strengthen the weak ones to help their unbelief and increase their faith in God in Christ. Above all, God does test run of to warn of worse unquenchable fires in hell and gnashing of teeth by groanings. These fires reveal preview of the worse fires of judgement of wrath of God. This is the time to decide to live for God to be in God’s Kingdom or to ignore God’s fire alarm warning hellfire not escaped. Do not let anyone deceive you a loving God will not punish by fire because Sodom and Gomorrah was burnt by fire. Live life to full but remember that you are created in God’s Image whether you are a believer or not, will one day in future face God’s future judgement. Take a full advantage as survivor, advise yourself you do not want to be anywhere near hell fire which is a million times hotter than the paradise fires. Faith in God and good fire insurance has buoyed Barbara Kramer, 79, whose two-bedroom home and car were destroyed. Apparently, lost everything but haven’t lost anything she said. “We’re Christians and everything we have belongs to the LORD so if it is gone, it’s just things.” Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude gratitude reflection for survival even if only in clothes on body. Thanksgiving gives hope of assurance to Trust GOD HIMSELF to provide again as HE did before. So is confident to rebuild but knew some don’t understand how one can lose everything they worked for their whole lives and not feel any loss of devastation sadness. Thank God for the ones with fire insurance taken care of so booked into a Hotels for weeks or as long as necessary. Others are in a make shift temporary accommodation at the moment trying to figure their future.
