After 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.God 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. Mankind 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. So 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. 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.Christ fulfilled prophecies and He took our place to receive penalty of our sins. His Second Coming defeats sin eternally. Before Jesus’ Second Coming is he whole world is filled with wonder follows the beast. 4 People worship dragon for giving the authority to the beast and boasting ask, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it. 5 The beast has mouth to say proud words and to blaspheme with authority for forty-two months. 6 Opens mouth to blaspheme God, slander HIS NAME and HIS dwelling place and those in heaven.7 Given power he wages war against God’s Holy people and controls them. Has authority over tribes, people, languages, nations. 8 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.”In 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 9:27; Daniel 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. Theologians 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. The 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.Led 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,8 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. Revelation 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.
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. Seas 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. 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. The 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. 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. Some 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. The 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. God’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. He 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. God’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. 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.
Isaiah 53:1 says, “Who believes our report and to whom is Arm of the LORD revealed?” 2 He shall grow up before HIM as a tender plant root from the dry ground with no form or comeliness. So see Him of no beauty to desire Him 3 He is despised and rejected of men as man of sorrows acquainted with grief. So hid our faces from Him as He was despised and not esteemed. 4 He bore our griefs and our sorrows. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed. 6 We all like sheep have gone astray and turned on our way; the LORD laid on Him iniquity of our sins. 7 He was oppressed and afflicted yet He opened not His mouth: He was brought as a Lamb to the slaughter or like sheep but did not open His Mouth. 8 He was afflicted for us but who is declaring Him to His generation? He was cut off from the land of the living for transgressions of my people was he stricken. 9 He was in the grave with the wicked and rich in death but did no evil with no deceit in His Mouth. 10 The LORD bruised Him and put Him to grief and made His Soul the offering for sin. HE sees HIS Seed raised after days as the LORD allowed in HIS HANDS. 11 HE sees travail of His Soul and His knowledge as a Righteous Servant justifies Him to bear iniquities. 12 His Portion is GREAT to Spoil spoilers and strong because He poured His Soul to death. He was with transgressors and bore our sin making intercession for us.Declare to all generations He was cut off from the land of the living for the sake of the transgressions of MY PEOPLE and whipped. Isaiah 52:13-53:12 is about the Servant Song Book of Isaiah on Jesus the “Righteous Servant” of God. The Son of God came not to be served but to Serve and Give His Life as a ransom for many. All who believe and receive Jesus are Children of God. YAHWEH said, MY PEOPLE perish for lack knowledge and understanding so study Bible to learn. Isaiah 53 represents Jesus the Messiah and the Saviour to all nations sent by God to REDEEM sinners to restore them back to God. Jesus took on Him the punishment of all nations so all who accept Jesus Christ belong to God. Jesus a Jew from Israel is Chosen by God together with Israel who bears pogroms and suffering in Isaiah 52:4 on behalf of all others in Isaiah 53:7,11–12. Jesus is highly exalted by God to nations and kings in Isaiah 52:15 to repent for “He GAVE His Soul to death to save us.” Individuals are to follow Jesus Christ so personally saved and also nations as a whole. Christ SACRIFICED His Life as the Messiah for personal salvation. God commanded Philip to teach Ethiopian eunuch sitting in chariot, reading Book of Isaiah about Jesus. The eunuch didn’t understand what he read so Philip helps to explain to him its teachings on Jesus. The eunuch asked Philip, who was this prophet in Isaiah 53? Philip opens same scripture to preach to Eunuch about the Messiah Jesus Christ. Christians believe report Jesus is Messiah in Isaiah 53:1 so “the Arm of the LORD is revealed.” The Ethiopian Eunuch believed so baptised immediately by Phillip. The Jews and Gentiles are forgiven by Jesus on Cross because all have sinned and fallen short of the GLORY of God. All mankind’s sins are forgiven so nobody is to be blamed or hated for the crucifixion of Jesus. In Jeremiah 31:23, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in cities when I bring them from captivity; The LORD bless you O home of justice and mountain of holiness. Israel is restored after 4,000 years as a nation with own language spoken and written again. This miracle never happened in history before shows recreation by God of the world to come. As Israel is restored to original nation so God restores earth.But many others, despite Jesus’ signs and miracles do not believe Jesus is the Word made Flesh to dwell among us in 1 John 1:1, as Isaiah also prophecied. So not all obey the GOSPELS as Romans 10:16 said. And Isaiah 53:1 said, not all will believe the GOSPEL report although Jesus fulfilled Isaiah 53. The Arm of the LORD is a metaphor for YAHWEH’S activities in living history. Isaiah 53:4 is quoted in Matthew 8:17 as Jesus heals people in Christian ministry fulfilling what Isaiah said “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses and by His stripes we are healed.” God gave Jesus as atonement for all sin to redeem mankind from separation from God. So the Gospel made available to share with all who choose to listen and be saved. A timeline is set by God to share GOSPEL until the time of the Gentiles ends. Only God knows exact time is so important to accept Jesus to be saved. Opportunities are given to all to decide to accept Jesus and have Eternal Life. Or join those who refuse to believe Gospel Reports of the testimony of Jesus salvation and so face the consequences of God’s WRATH and Jesus’ With to come upon the earth. The News is full of ongoing warnings of the Arm of God to alert mankind to repent. Why gain the whole world and lose your soul? Be persuaded not death or life or angels or principalities or powers or things present or things to come or height or depth or any other creature can separate us from the LOVE of God, in Christ Jesus our Lord says Roman 8:38:39. The GREATEST GIFT from God is GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to accept Jesus, repent confess your sins to God and follow Jesus as your personal Saviour. It is a fearful thing to Fall into the HANDS of the LIVING God YAHWEH by rejecting Jesus Christ as your Lord.
I AM the Alpha and Omega the First and the Last. What you see, write in a book and send to the seven Churches in Asia. Write things you see now and things to happen afterwards in Revelations 1:11, 19. Today’s Churches compared to the 7 Churches show things are not perfect or everyone is perfect because Christians serve is a PERFECT God so expects all to be perfect in Church. Speak to a pastor, minister, elder, congregation members of any Church and there is not one who is not dealing with one thing or another. It was exactly the same in 7 Churches in Revelations with the various problems encountered in those Churches. Today’s Church on earth falls under categories of these 7 Churches so is not perfect. The seven churches in Bible described in Revelation 2-3 are literal Churches at the time apostle John was writing that Revelation. Today these literal Churches have spiritual significance for Churches and believers today. The first purpose of letters was to communicate with literal churches to meet the needs of the time. A second purpose reveals the different types of individual member’s characters in Church throughout history to instruct them better in God’s TRUTH. The third purpose is these seven churches WARN modern Churches. The problems of that time fits today’s views on each of these seven Churches describing all issues in Church history. These seven churches represent focus of message God gives a Church of God. The seven churches are:(1) Ephesus Church in Revelation 2:1-7 forsook first love Jesus Christ 2:4 to be involved in idolatry or other priorities. The worshipers indulged in their basest religious rites of sensuality and wildest bacchanalian excessive vicious orgies to worship of Cybele in Paul’s time. In two years Word of God from the school of Tyrannus spread out of experience Paul wrote, great and effectual door opened to me but there are many adversaries” in 1 Corinthians 16:9. John, the “apostle of love” and the “son of thunder,” came to Ephesus as a pastor exiled to Patmos, after ten years returned to Ephesus. The Basilica of Saint John, located on highest point built over traditional burial spot of Apostle John. In Ephesus church Paul mentions sexual immorality misconduct and inappropriate sex communications, pornography, physical sexual adultery. Impure, unholy, unclean life, Ephesians 4:19 of believers entangled in various sins in Ephesians 4:17–19. All Christians are to be free from “sexual immorality,” covetousness in Exodus 20:1 passionate desire for things belonging to other’s by lusting after their wife. Selfish greed to take overt subtle actions in thought and attitudes. Paul said such things should not exist among believers as Christians so confess sin to God and seek to get of it in 1 John 1:9. To be accountable for the health of entire church. Paul says a pure church has proper conduct among saints to avoid these kinds of problems in Corinth in 1 Corinthians 5. So sexual immorality tolerated in Church caused problems for entire congregation costs respect for Christ a bad press witness to the world. The ethics of Greek culture clashed with ethics of Jesus as sexual immorality was accepted fact of life. For common people in Greek culture it was so but not to be so among the followers of Jesus. A man took his father’s wife in sexual relationship either married or if living together with stepmother his father’s wife. This ‘Christian’ woman’s sexual immorality is not even named among Gentiles. Paul said, incestuous relationship taboo pagans culture didn’t do Corinthian Christians accepted incest not even named among Gentiles. It is sin in Bible Leviticus 18:8, Deuteronomy 22:30; 27:20. Yet Corinthian Christians didn’t seem bothered by it at all. Their reaction to the sin was: you are puffed up and not mourned so this sin might be taken away from among you. The sin was bad but Paul is more concerned Corinthian Christians seem to take the sin lightly, unconcerned didn’t mourn sin behaviour. Paul dealt with problems of Corinthian Christian’s wrong ideas of God’s POWER at work and HIS servants. Paul deals with moral problem thinking to bring change through God’s Word. So “he who did this might be taken away from among you. Paul’s solution to the problem was remove unrepentant man from protection of fellowship of God’s people. Corinthian Christians did not do so as Corinth’s sexual immorality pagan religion didn’t value purity. Corinthian’s religious sexual pleasure by concubines is fun as wives bear legitimate children. God’s law in Leviticus 18:8 forbids a sex with stepmother not see their nakedness as father’s wife. Rabbi Akibah on Gentile convert to Judaism says new person, old family relationship did not count. Open-minded tolerated sin puffed up did not mourn. Corinthians must grieve for the man and take him away from Church.2. SMYRNA Church suffers martyrdom for Christ in Revelations 2:8-11 suffers persecutions (2:10). Their city adorned by noble buildings, beautiful temples of Zeus, Cybele (Diana), Aphrodite, Apollo, Aesculapius. Smyrna theater, odeum, music center, stadium Polycarp bishop of Smyrna and student of apostle John, martyred was burnt alive A.D. 155. Lord Jesus’ letter to Churches said He knew their sufferings and poverty so did not condemn them. Church at Philadelphia had continuous existence as lampstand moved so few Christians live in Izmir. Undercover, make indirect contact, do not come out in open because Christians are persecuted today in modern Turkey. Smyrna church covers the period from A.D. 100 to approximately A.D. 314 from death of the apostle John to the Edict of Toleration by Constantine in A.D. 313 ended persecution of Christians all over the Roman Empire’s ten intense periods of persecution by ten Roman emperors: Nero: 64-68, Paul beheaded under reign Domitian: 95-96. John exiled period and Trajan: 104-117 (Ignatius burnt at stake) Marcus Aurelius: 161-180 (Polycarp was martyred) Severus: 200-211 Maximinius 235-237 Decius: 250-253 Valerian: 257 -260 Aurelian: 270-275 Diocletian: 303-313 the worst emperor of all. Christians stood up for God and King Jesus to obey God rather than men so paid price with their lives. Like Solemnity to Lord Jesus Christ King of Universe instituted 1925 by Pope Pius XI pushed against a rise of secular political allegiance of Christians. Their faculties was exempt from the empire so Christ reigned in their minds, reigned in their wills, reigned in their hearts. So Christ their King they believed will soon topple kingdoms and replace all human despots with Kingdom of God. Jesus is their ONLY TRUE KING so no one except Christ POWER received their allegiance. Doctrine of Christ their King understood loved not their lives unto death. Faith to them more important than a rule of law contended to defend their faith believed and received as Christians. God’s Rule in Jesus outweighs all kingdoms outweighs everything else so its No King but Jesus. For Christians, God monarchy kingship of Jesus totally invert power gold crown and wealth. His coronation on the Cross crowned with thorns, dug into his head. King Jesus looked to world as abdicated royal status born in manger of David’s City, Jesus, monarchy is defined by His ULTIMATE SACRIFICE to ransom many. Christ’s Kingship coronation on a Cross was not glamourous dress processions ermine and orbs glorious courtiers. It was for the dispossessed His Monarchy brought spirit closer to God through His Blood as Servant KING Priest into whose service many are saved and baptised.(3) Pergamum Church in Revelations 2: 12-17 needs to repent (2:16). Pergamos temples and library of the pagan world. Parchment (pergamena) used by library Mark Antony to Cleopatra of Alexandria in Egypt. So evil was the city satan’s seat of religion in Pergamum’s headquarters of all kinds of cultish schism divisions. Jesus said satan’s throne in Pergamum because of heathen temples now ruins today. Dionysius Bacchus, god of wine, goat-god depicted with horns, but with his upper part as a man and lower part a goat with cloven feet the god of wine or alcohol, liquor takes more territory than anything else. Greek god Asklepios, a man but Anatolian Oriental Asklepios, is a serpent temple prostitution of sexy voices healing satanic in their day. Jesus commended His believers at Pergamum to hold fast My Name as faithful defend Christ. Arian heresy denied the deity of Christ but Athanasius from North Africa was great defender of the faith because of him the Council of Nicea in A.D. 325 condemned Arianism. Augustine rejects Pelagian heresy denied original sin by total corruption of human nature and irresistible grace. These are two giants this period stood unshakably for great doctrines of Christian faith.(4) Thyatira Church in Revelation 2:18-29 on false religion (2:20). Jesus said, I know your deeds, love, faith, service perseverance, doing more than you did at first in Revelation 2:19. Five qualities are: 1) love 2) faith 3) service 4) patient endurance 5) greater works. Jesus notes they tolerated Jezebel’s idol prophetess, misleading God’s servants into sexual immorality and eating food sacrificed to idols in Revelation 2:20. False religions led believers to compromise in a Church engaging in sexual immorality, dabbling in idolatry. Jezebel’s idolatrous actions oppose God’s way, false teachers kept in Church believers in Thyatira allowed to continue deception. Jesus pronounced a judgment on “Jezebel” and calls Church of Thyatira to repent of sin: “I will cast her on bed of suffering, make those who commit adultery with her suffer, unless repents of evil way I will strike children dead in Revelation 2:22-23. And Jesus encourages the faithful: “I say to the rest of you in Thyatira who do not hold to her teaching by not learning satan’s ways I will not burden you. Hold on until I come in Revelation 2:24-25. So faithful believers didn’t fall into satan’s trap, need to remain faithful till Christ’s return. Jesus promised angels, believers in Thyatira: “All who overcome and do My will to the end I’ll give authority over the nations to rule them with an iron scepter to dash them into pieces like the pottery with authority from My Father God. Daniel prophesied all other kingdoms will fall, shattered by a stone not cut by hand. The living stone is Jesus Cornestone of the Church. I will give you the morning star in Revelation 2:26-28). Blessings include 1) authority over nations, 2) victory over enemies 3) Morning star Jesus in Revelation 22:16 given to His Church to fellowship rules together forever.(5) Sardis Church in Revelation 3:1-6 is fallen asleep. (3:2). To the angel of the Church in Sardis writes John’s message from the Lord, Words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and seven stars. Jesus has seven Spirits meaning perfect Spirit of God only Jesus holds the seven stars or the seven angels or pastors of the seven churches in Revelation 1:20. Jesus condemns lifeless state of Sardian church: “I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive but dead says Revelation 3:2. This church had a good reputation, but spiritually lifeless, filled with unsaved people going through the motions of religion. The tares among wheat in Matthew 13:24-30 Jesus calls them to repent of sin to “Wake up and strengthen what remains, about to die. Change bad deeds to become complete in the sight of God. Remember what you receive, hear, obey, repent in Revelation 3:2-3. Pay attention to needs of salvation and care about Jesus in the heart before God. Jesus judgment takes place if they do not repent: “If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief and not know time I will come in Revelation 3:3. A Church unrepentant is dead so disciplined by Jesus Himself. Jesus encourages Sardis Church to be faithful as a few people in Sardis did not soil clothes with idolatry. So will walk with Jesus dressed in white for they are worthy says Revelation 3:4. Faithful remnant garments are so pure and “worthy found in Paul’s teaching in Ephesians 4:1; Colossians 1:10; and 1 Thessalonians 2:12. “Worthy” of faith in the heart faithful ones are promised to walk with Jesus in white says Matthew 22:11-12; Revelation 19:8. Jesus promise to believers in Sardis as overcomes will, be dressed in white and will never blot out names from the book of life. And so acknowledge names before My Father and his angels says Revelation 3:5)l. The overcomers are born again in 1 John 5:4 receive white garment of righteousness eternal security so confessed by Jesus in heaven in Luke 12:8.(6) Philadelphia Church in Revelations 3:7-13 endured patiently (3:10) says the Lord, who identifies Himself, Him who is Holy and True, who holds the key of David. What He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open is a description Jesus used to emphasize His Holiness, Sovereignty and Authority by reference to key of David’s Messianic prophecy of Isaiah 22:22. Jesus Opens and Shuts doors no one reverses. Jesus affirms Church’s good actions: “I know your deeds. See, I place before you an open door no one can shut. I know you have little strength but kept My word so not denied My Name in Revelation 3:8. Church of Philadelphia weak, remained faithful in face of trial so Lord promised them “open door” blessing. Jesus’ letter condemns enemies of the Philadelphian believers I will make those of synagogue of satan, who claim to be Jews but come and fall at your feet and acknowledge I love you says Revelation 3:9. Those who persecute believers religious hypocrites realize Christ Loves His loyal Children. Church of Philadelphia victorious over enemies. Jesus encourages believers of His future Coming: “Since you kept My command to endure patiently, I will keep you from the hour of trial to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth. I am Coming Soon. Hold on to what you have so no one takes your crown in Revelation 3:10-11. Church’s faithful endurance is a blessing. Jesus will take them to be with Him before Great tribulation in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. He says to remain faithful because of rewards in the afterlife. Rapture event is distinct from Second Coming of Jesus Christ. So Philadelphians are promised to be saved, preserved from time of Great tribulation happening after Rapture. Jesus told Philadelphia believers and all believers, ‘All who overcome I will make a pillar in Temple of My God. I will write NAME of My God and Name of City of My God the New Jerusalem coming down from heaven from My God and write on you My New Name in Revelations 3:12. God Honours the overcomer’s pillar names in heaven like custom in Philadelphia. He makes pillar for each in Spiritual Temple of God New Jerusalem from heaven in Galatians 2:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 6:16 Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:4-10. Jesus makes everlasting pillars in the House of God and strengthens weak believers Philippians 4:13. Jesus comforts, blesses Philadelphians who faithfully stood for Christ in pagan culture. His words serve as encouragement to faithful believers.(7) Laodicea Church in Revelation 3:14-22 lukewarm faith not hot / cold (3:16). The Laodicean Church, not commended by Jesus’ message condemning them of deeds neither cold nor hot will spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I acquired wealth so don’t need anything. You are wretched, pitiful, poor so blind and naked in Revelation 3:15-17. Jesus said, lukewarm three times due to their spiritual lackadaisical attitude, Jesus has nothing to do with them “spit” them out.” Their apathy is spiritual blindness to be rich blessed self-sufficient rich in material things. Spiritually, Laodiceans a wretched, pitiful condition ignorant of their need in church of the self-deceived hypocrites. Jesus tells Laodicean church to repent of sin: I tell you buy My gold refined in fire, to be rich and buy white clothes to wear to cover nakedness. Put salve on eyes, to see as Revelation 3:18 says their material wealth of no eternal benefit. Jesus says come to Him for true, Spiritual riches in Isaiah 55:1-2. Christ’s eternal inheritance clothe righteousness and heal spiritual blindness. Jesus loves rebuke to discipline in earnest to repent saying, Here I am! I stand at your door and knock. If you hear My voice, open door I will come and eat with you and you with Me in Revelation 3:19-20. God disciplines those HE LOVES in Hebrews 12:6 so change, repent to let Jesus come in and take His rightful place in Church to dine with His Children like last Super close relationship. Jesus tells believers in Laodicea who overcome, I will give the right to sit with Me on My Throne as I overcame and sit with My Father God by HIS Right Hand on HIS THRONE says Revelation 3:21 so share Christ’s future Kingdom. Love for Christ must not be destroyed by the deceitfulness of wealth and desires for other things to choke the Word in Mark 4:19. Christ says repent to choose to live to serve God, Joshua 24:15 says Jesus calls all to follow Him today. Jesus warns in Matthew 24:11 in the last days, there will be many false Christ’s claiming to be Jesus. Trust and believe ONLY Jesus in Bible LIVING in heaven on the RIGHT Hand of God and so is not physically on earth. Jesus warns people, beware of false prophets in the last days so those who claim to be Christian must understand scripture on false prophets not to follow Russian Jesus, Australian Jesus, Jim Jones wacko of waco. They are followed since they grew in Church schooled in the Bible. Know verses used to convince people they are ‘born again’ Christians. People draw closer to them but can’t see things at first. If things don’t add up like a real Church of Jesus should be, some make mistake of challenging them so do adapt to fool people. Other people discover what the original groups knew secretly but trust them because sermons are perfect as a saints but actions don’t synchronise. So people leave the Church but they attack them as spiritual prostitutes not faithful to the pastor. Those psychologically left behind are hooked sink and barrel pour in money loose home, property. Lack of accurate knowledge means stays behind out of fear and Church has them. Pastor in a pulpit or pew members always has false pastor or churches existing etc. NO PERFECT Church exists yet on earth. An idiot pastor can be seen through actions but others never give their game away. Ignorance or lack of confidence in God, makes some people rely on Charlatans. So charming use genuine pastors, members as frontline workers to create trust despite evil ways, successful. Their elect remnant faithful few God uses so Churches thrive against all odds. Their exploited insiders taken advantage of hurt by trusted tainted vessel delivering GOSPEL. But IT DOES NOT MEAN GOD, JESUS, HOLY SPIRIT GOSPEL tainted. In Jesus Name they heal the sick, deliver people do miracles and wonders and people go to heaven. But Jesus said they depart from Him as evil doers He does not know. They showed off miracles to pull crowds to impress people, play God and take God’s GLORY instead of giving credit and Honour to God. Lucifer wants to be God not a servant of God so not man of God in the true sense of the word. Paul said he did not want to lead others to God and perish so he ran the race to win the price. Paul in Gospel told people since his repentance he lived by good example, worked hard, sold tents earned income so did not rely on their Church donations to make money. And he received free gifts cheerfully given by people to him. Taught them he was a preacher servant of God but was saved like everyone else. He had to work out HIS salvation with fear of God too and by trembling in humility. Yes that Paul became different from Saul an official. These leaders take the mick by saying they are Jesus, God will deal with heresy and blasphemous mocking. But people choose to follow them knowing deep down they’re at peace within. Yet seek them because there in no dispute they have a hint of good bringing people the word. But if different people claim to be Jesus and open churches it takes two to tango so a false prophet or false pastor needs gullible, vulnerable people props. Stockholm syndrome attachment forms so deceived Jesus said in Matthew 24:24 be discerning or even an elect deceived. They are cunning manipulative smooth operators who debilitate victims. They gradually suck victims dry and it’s hard to notice it’s taking place. Use reliable front men as trustworthy foot soldiers. So it’s hard to believe things going on in secret chambers. Some members there years unaware of evils going on but the few inner circles who expose them are blacklisted, blackmailed or even killed in extreme cases. Jesus says that test the spirits to see if they are from God and by their own personal private life fruits you will know them. Since there is no perfect pastor or nobody is perfect still assemble together anyway. Check if the contents of pastor’s character is biblical or members faithful if yardsticks to go by in Church. Bible says House of God has vessels of dis/honour as wheat and tares so God had Lucifer Jesus had Judas Iscariot so Churches faces challenges too. DEPEND ON GOD and FOCUS ON JESUS and the HOLY SPIRIT. God says soon nobody will need anyone to teach them to KNOW God. GOD WILL TEACH PEOPLE DIRECTLY THROUGH WORDS, READ, STUDY BIBLE, PRAY SEEK GOD’S FACE. Thank God for HIS Grace and Mercy in Jesus Name. The false prophet does not mean they don’t have anything good to offer. They are God’s Creation in image of God but sincerely so ignorantly wrong. Some are mentally deranged or others fulfill prophecy Jesus said about endtime false prophets. Jesus said at times go to learn from mistake of others to avoid it and learn from wise to grow Timothy in faith. Timothy in Bible says, check a pastor’s domestic track record if loyal husband of one wife; takes care of their family as good role model, honest, genuine approved by God. Faithful to a wife, handles money well, trustworthy, reliable, dependable, honest, caring, compassionate, sincere. Our first duty to ourselves is please God not a watchman policing false pastors or fake Christian Church members. It is your decision to ask God to deliver you in Jesus Name from oppressive Church. Today people attend Church with preconceived ideas of what Church is in their head. They go there based on what they want see, feel or experience, elated or disappointed by Church. Many look for a perfect Church but its illusion because it does not exist. Do not assume all Church members are born again believers, following, obeying God in a heavenly atmosphere enjoyed on earth. Don’t enter a Church premise with attitude of great expectations that satisfy your assessment checklist. Good members can meet a standard checklist analysis during the honey moon period. Loyal ones remain consistently reliable and dependable so trustworthy serving for years. Others come and go, or thorns in the flesh of Church but do not leave. Toxic members and leader’s factions in Church is like Judas Iscariot with Jesus and His Apostles to sabotage or kill their leader. Also action of lucifer challenged by God in heaven led to satan and one – third angels thrown down from heaven. Confronted by God ganged up to falsely accuse God to cause division. Complex Church problem of the autocrat leaders manipulating their vulnerable members taken advantage of. Have no choice but become their pawns used to divide and conquer members for their selfish ends. Requesting money after praying or with coloured candles, baths in river streams unlike leprosy cured by Elijah. So prays curses on people, repetitive prayers or chants not in Bible. Favouritism of petty jealousy resurfaces again and again so emotions and feelings hurt in process. It shocks all, ruins Church so some to fall away from God or standard too strict to conform some rebel so leave. Whatever situation congregation pew members or leaders face problems daily unresolved is left to fester is scandalous so damages reputation of the Church. Stated in Bible some people fall away denouncing their Church. A series of events accumulates until breakdown in communication and cannot be resolved. People lose faith in God based on human actions they have observed or are forced into partaking in repulsive some never recover suffering in silence. Others under a thumb of the leader not relying on God, chewed and spewed out, other victims replace them. Multiple victims are played like game of chess so none particularly gains upper hand to rock perpetrator’s boat. On the surface at a glance, things seem normal until dust settles later as reality sets in. Fight, flight, swim or sink mode is the decision faced with nowhere to go. Fear of maintains hold of leader’s secret and privileged information is need to know basis style of leadership. Hidden secret meetings takes place and people aware helpless cannot intervene or take action due to their fear of being targeted excluded or killed. So Girls and boys are groomed in a Church twisting their mind to make them feel it’s their fault. Follow instinct and gut feelings which tends to be right if it’s too good to be true. So stay away from such people promising the moon but discards you by ghosting you when they finish with you. Suffering, pain and damage cost you so stuff gone through is not worth the pain stop things and leave immediately. You have power to stop don’t play the victim relying on the perpetrator to stop. They never stop as long as you allow it you’re manipulated so means you agreed. The perfect Church longed for does not exist because no Church can cater for all the member’s needs as all human beings are imperfect. No such Church exists so dreams of ever finding perfect church is fantasy. Scripture says perfect Church is possible according to Word of God. But in reality various definitions of perfect Church is the cause of the problem. Stop wasting time looking for perfect Church because no church is perfect. Church on earth is made up of imperfect and sinful people seeking help from God in Christ to become whole. 1 Corinthians 1:1-9 in Bible describes the perfect church. Don’t bother looking for perfect Church you’ll be disappointed. It is impossible to find it right on earth until Lord Jesus returns to set up His NEW Church of God. So put hope in God in Church that loves God in this life if even not perfect. Ideal Church of God will happen when PERFECT Jesus Christ Reigns. No human being at this moment is perfect enough as a leader or perfect Church members. People’s ideas of perfect Church is the pastor preaches appealing sermons or a worship music stirs people. Presentation is flawless so programs address life needs in trendy facility. Definition concentrates on the program of the perfect church as people expect to make Church perfect. Eyes on others in body of Christ to hold them accountable as responsible for making a Church perfect. Focus on faults causes imperfection of Church yet the accusers are not perfect either.A perfect Church is determined by those who measure things important to life in Church programs, plans, property and possessions. Distracts Church people to follow for material or health needs. Do not teach love Jesus as 1 John 4:2-3 says is their personal saviour and friend to be in love with and adored. So recognise the Spirit of God to acknowledge Jesus Christ came in flesh from God in heaven and will return in the flesh to Reign on earth. Colossians 3:12-14 says God’s CHOSEN people to be holy dearly loved clothed in compassion kindness, humility, gentleness, patience. Bear with each other forgive grievances against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgives you. 14 Above all these virtues put on love to bind them all together in perfect unity. Forgive those who offend you live altogether in perfect harmony. A Church in perfect harmony where all live happily ever after. A perfect church where everyone is loved so loving each other as one united community. Love of God in Christ binds Christians together in fellowship. Love helps us to grow in Spirit and in Truth maturing in things of God. Perfect harmony expresses love in Christian community and Galatians 5:22-25 describes fruits of Holy Spirit to aspire to achieve. The deepest genuine relationship with Jesus Christ flows by their love from God as Jesus prayed His followers be one. In many the Churches connection craved through Godly love is lacking or misinterpreted by lust. Can a perfect church in a community grounds for abomination? Actions speaks louder than words so a perfect sermon must be practicalized for all to see by agape love of believers as God’s Children by their love for each other. Remember an obea, juju, vudu priest, witchdoctor’s oracle’s predict future too as Saul saw Samuel appear to a witch at Endor in disguise. Ability to forecast or predict things in the NAME of God is not a yardstick for measuring true prophet of God. Their fruits in God’s Word, sermons performs miracles, healing, signs, wonders but a vessel needs deliverance, salvation and mercy of God. Paul said he did not want to lead others to Christ but perish so runs the race like the congregation to win a prize too. Jesus warned people performing miracles in His Name, save, heal people with signs and wonders but do it to show off to take God’s GLORY so does not PLEASE and HONOUR God. For wrong reason of pride, ego God rejects them despite their personal attempts to impress God. Salvation is in the Name of Jesus not in their display of miracles to pull crowds. They may be used to save others but are sincerely wrong by not humbly submitting to God’s Authority. Perform miracles to impress people and become ‘god’ to their followers. People quote what they say more than God’s Words in the Bible. Instead of being the channel leading people to God become conduit drawing people to themselves for praise and adulations. Forget there is no other Name among men by which people will be saved play God to a point their “fruits” of what they do and what they tell you to do are contrary to what the Bible teaches. Tell some members to practice greater love and lay their lives down for them but do not return same favour. Uses people to build themselves up rather than build God up in Christ. Constantly attack members, find faults belittles, humiliates to feel powerful but scrutinize their personal behaviour and character, how they talk, act in private. Instead building up to encourage to put up with one another, warts and all and accepting actions to correct attitudes of immature baby Christians, is very harsh unlike God’s mercy. So creates pain and bitterness to hurt people not Holy Spirit allowed to change them so are draining or emotionally tiring. Money conscious, materialistic minded, always preach the “all these things” health wealth doctrine but filled by spiritual pride. Live sinful lifestyle but separate the flesh body lust from their spiritual body in Christ. Dual personality concept excused used to fool and abuse members justify sin, reassure victims God is aware so its acceptable. A tendency to misinterpret Bible, secretly lust after attractive ladies in Church. Do not be deceived or encouraged to ignore devil defeated so doesn’t count. Positive response is to use a practical wisdom in Romans 12:9-13:10 to build up body the of Christ not focus on people’s faults but FOCUS on Sovereign God in Christ as it’s all about God FIRST. A Church is God’s assemble together to WORSHIP God and passing Godly values from generation to by taking children to a Church to learn the things of God. Some don’t realise its for that so meet to find or make friends, mates, spouse, sell or others do not why know they attend Church. The priests or pastors, ministers, leaders, elders must abide by God’s instructions. Bible says Aaron’s sons died after an uncalled for sacrifice to God in Temple but a senior priest’s exclusive job. 2 Chronicles 27:1-2 says King Jotham good king as father Uzziah didn’t go to temple to worship God. King Uzziah went to temple every week so expected his son to continue practice. Many young people turn from parents’ training, church attendance to miss God’s blessings. Jotham refused to go to temple to receive God’s blessing by not letting go of the blame and shame of father’s leprosy he associated with God. Felt it was God’s fault his father’s action in church ruined his life. A royal family like that will not turn up to hear people whisper of king’s leprosy. 2 Chronicles 27:1-2 passage on Jotham not in temple is to KNOW his place in Church. Wrong to abandon Church due to his anger by condemning God did not set very good example as a leader . Moses was leader punished by God so did not to enter the promised land despite serving God for years. Ananias and Sapphira members of Pentecost Church were dealt with by the Holy Spirit who revealed their deeds and God punished them. Exegesis shows interpretation of passage to understand context, histories of Uzziah and Jotham, 2 Chronicles 26-27; 2 Kings 15:1-6, 32-38. King Uzziah good king disobeyed LORD God in the temple offering of incense on altar only a priest had a right to do in 2 Chronicles 26:16-20. And Uzziah’s pride contaminated temple results in “leprosy until day he died” in 2 Chronicles 26:21. Lived in isolation as the Leviticus 13:46 required of leprosy. God’s punishment in passages of 2 Kings 5:27; 2 Chronicles 16:12; and 21:12-15 show leaders must be careful in handling HIS CHURCH. It is important to understand Temple is the LORD’s not to repeat a past leader’s mistakes. Uzziah proudly usurped the priest’s office but Jotham disobedient by refusing to attend the Temple too. God disciplines HIS Children but blesses the obedient who earns a special crown of God. Leaders or congregations need to learn from past mistakes not to repeat them. As unashamed workmen of God, to correctly interpret Scripture not to render them as literature to cut off Holy Spirit of God from texts. Koresh wanted to take over Moses’ leadership duties so ganged up with others to rebel against Moses. GOD punished them by opening ground to swallow them with families though a few survived. Saul performed sacrifice before Samuel arrived was told that to obey is better than sacrifice. For disobedience is like witchcraft rebellion against God’s instructions or commands in Bible is practising idolatry. 2 Timothy 2:15 commands all, “Present yourself to God approved workman who don’t need to be ashamed, correctly handling Word of TRUTH.” Some Church leaders stop the members from studying Bible telling them they are their Moses. Theological gymnastics to prove how highly learned they are confuses members. A desire to impress by preaching their fixed recipe formula ingredient Gospel causes chaos and disagreements. Turning the Church into factions of theology is unprofitable and unsuitable. Some pastor’s split their Church over traditions of men doctrines to suit ideology. Tyrant’s Church idolize men of God not God of men. High and an independent Church may challenge a leader in secret but also allows them to function because they appointed them leaders so as founder of a Church often above their correction. Beloved, I diligently write to you about our common salvation so it is necessary to write to you to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints. Certain men crept in unnoticed long ago marked for condemnation ungodly men who turn the grace of God into a license immorality and deny Jesus Christ, our only sovereign and Lord in Jude 3-4. So Jude means defend ‘The Faith’ paying attention to the body of Christ’s doctrine Christian TRUTH. The Christian doctrine is delivered to saints to keep secure and as John in Revelation 22:19 is instructed readers not add or take from the Word. Christians are to take the basic doctrine of the faith and live by example through agape love. Keeping good principles for Christian living as Paul in 2 Timothy 4:7 stated he remained faithful to this truth, of doctrinal core all the believers should adhere. Sound doctrine translated into a contemporary Christian life experience. God is known by a keen understanding of God’s Word, defending it through the personal relationship with God in Christ and the Holy Spirit. Not Greek, Hebrew, historical or systematic theology studied devoid of the practical relationship with God. The Church of God is one although difference in theology exists. Ephesians 4:4-6, says the Church is one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith one baptism; one Father God of all above all, through you all.” Theological debates of differences exist but is one faith in Lord God Almighty in Christ. Studies reflect theory but in truth lack true doctrine of love and faith. Jude’s sound doctrine of faith in practice and ethics not distorted by false teachers who turn Grace of God into license for immorality. These false teachers who change faith affect ethical practical life of believers. Essential faith doctrine of Jesus’ creeds and confession is in Matthew 16:13-17 when Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi He asked disciples, Who do men say I, the Son of Man I am?Some said, John the Baptist, Elijah and others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ But who do you say I am?’ Simon Peter answered and said, ‘You are the Christ the Son of the Living God.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, flesh and blood didn’t reveal this to you but My God Father in heaven. So Peter confessed true identity of Christ as basis of faith and doctrine of Christianity. In 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, the Gospel preached to you as received stand by it, be saved hold fast the word preached to you and you believed. Delivered to you is Word received that Christ died for our sins in Scriptures was buried and rose on third day is coming to resurrect dead soon. Paul delivered, “the faith” received as basic content of the Gospel. 1 Timothy 3:16 on message of mystery of God is confession of creed of God manifested in the flesh and justified in Spirit is seen by angels, as preached among Gentiles to believe heard in the world is received into glory in heaven.” These confessions are bedrocks of Christian belief for their faith like Jude. Modern Church doctrine constitutes the faith Jude talks about as discussed. Christians believing in Jesus express an interest in the importance of sound doctrine to protect faith. Doctrine is crucial to Gospel Truth of person working for Christ. Theologian, pastors, members must be trained to defend the faith not just professional theologians. Christians biblically educated earnestly contend for faith not allow false teacher to do what they want. Jesus and other New Testament authors, warned of the coming of false teachers in Acts 20:29-30; 2 Corinthians 11, in Colossians 2:4-5; or 1Timothy 4:1; 6:20; and 2 Timothy 4:3; 2 Peter 2:1; 3:4. These texts say false teachers are coming and are currently present in Churches. Jude sounds alarm, “Church beware!” Contend earnestly for the faith as satan’s counterfeit actions of two thousand year’s Christianity history blurs truth of God. True Christians, well-grounded in Scripture spot counterfeit doctrine. Earnestly fight for Gospel as enemy is already defeated by Jesus so by intense devotion to God contend for faith. Doctrine taken seriously refutes error in Church. Doctrine interpretation of eschatology premillennialism, some post-tribulation believe Christians go to heaven before Great tribulation. Church pretribulations, believer’s rapture occur before great tribulation. Amillennial do interpret eschatology as postmillennials debates exists as advocates of legitimate interpretations are not heretic apostate false teachers. Because only God knows exact time huge differences exist in the eschatology but the deity of Christ Jesus, blood atonement, Second-coming, virgin birth are in the Bible. Doctrines of faith, Christian not to confuse with any issues unable to resolve by their differences. It to contend for the faith by wisdom and to discern those false teachers. In these cases Christians contend firmly in love to restore the false teacher if possible to regain faith so truly be converted. These messages of Jude is vital for twenty-first century Church to proclaim and defend God’s Truth of faith alone for salvation:
- The Scripture is God’s True Words.
- Adam and Eve lived Eden Garden
- The sin nature of human is saved
- The deity of Christ is absolute
- The virgin birth of Christ is real
- The sinless Christ’s perfection
- Substitution atonement of sin
- Jesus’ bodily resurrection is true
- Jesus second coming literally here
- Eternal, literal heaven and hell
- Perfect Church reflects love of God

Apocalyptic doomsday timeclock moved two minutes toward global nuclear Concern grows about a possible nuclear war and the global threats pushing forward their symbolic Doomsday Clock by 30 seconds two minutes before midnight. A Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) said it had acted because the world was becoming “more dangerous.” The clock, created by the journal in 1947, is metaphor for how close mankind is to destroying the earth and some inhabitants in the process. An amalgamation of world events points to growth spurt surge of global tragedies. It is getting closest to apocalypse since 1953, the year the US and Soviet Union tested hydrogen bombs. Last year, the clock moved forward by 30 seconds by the Scientists. Behind decision was an announcement of move in Washington DC on Thursday, and the BAS said the decision “wasn’t easy” and said it was not based on a single factor. However, BAS President and CEO Rachel Bronson said “in that year’s discussions, nuclear issues took centre stage once again.”So the team of scientists singled out series of nuclear tests by North Korea. They dramatically escalated tensions on the Korean peninsula and led to a war of words between North Korea and the US. BAS referred to new US nuclear strategy and expected to call for more funding to expand the role of the country’s nuclear arsenal. Rising tension between Russia and West was also a contributing factor. It is interesting this major players in the Armaggedon war alliances have set up magazines of ammunitions all over the world in strategic locations causing the sporadic tensions of territory turf wars. Worst of all the suppliers of the guns or bombs selling trillions worth of armour are monitoring the outbreaks of wars in many countries. These alliances explode into major Armageddon conflict against God HIMSELF taking back nations from all these factions to establish Kingdom of God on earth through Jesus Christ.The “weakening of institutions” around the world in dealing with major global threats including climate changes were other major concerns the scientists said. They mentioned US President Donald Trump’s “unpredictability” pointing to his controversial tweets and statements. The doomsday Clock’s minute hand on the Doomsday Clock is the metaphor for how vulnerable to catastrophe in world is deemed to be. Media caption WATCH how the Doomsday Clock changed from 1947 up to last year. So symbolic device created by Bulletin of Atomic Scientists in 1947 founded, University of Chicago, 1945 by group of scientists who helped develop first atomic weapons has group including physicists and environmental scientists from around the world. They decide to adjust clock in consultation with their group’s Board of Sponsors including Nobel laureates. The threats compared to previous years show the rapid rate of simultaneously dangerous global events. When created in 1947, the clock’s hand stood at seven minutes to midnight but changed to more than 20 times from two minutes to midnight to 17 minutes before midnight in 1991. So during 1962 Cuban missile crisis it was considered by many analysts to be the closest the Cold War face-off between the US and the USSR came to escalating into a nuclear war the Doomsday Clock stood still at seven minutes to midnight.The BAS says: “The answers to seeming anomaly are that the Doomsday Clock captures trends and takes into account the capacity of leaders and societies to respond to crises with reasoned actions to prevent nuclear holocaust. “Cuban Missile Crisis, for all its potential and ultimate destruction lasted a few weeks; but lessons learnt quickly apparently show United States and the Soviet Union installed the first hotline between two capitals to improve communications. It negotiated 1963 test ban treaty, ending all atmospheric nuclear testing.” In fact, the Doomsday Clock was moved back to 12 minutes to midnight in 1963. What is interesting about this doomsday clock is it is direct fulfilment of the apocalyptic prophecy predicted in the Bible. It is in a timeline with Daniel’s 70 years sealed as a prophecy for endtime of the world. Precise timing depends on the various cataclysmic event unfolding concurrent with Book of Revelations and Ezekiel 38 among other Prophecies. Jesus warned the world about the events 3 thousand years ago in Matthew 24. The warnings are not exclusive private matter of past disciples or to only Israel. This events are recorded in the Bible including the stages of how it unfolds and methods used by God and mankind. The nations involved are named in the Bible and the consequences affect the whole world. There are times when you have such rapid-moving fires … no amount of planning is going to result in a perfect scenario, and that’s what we had to deal with here,” Honea told the Action News Network. In northern California, when Paradise was evacuated, the order set off a desperate exodus in which many motorists got stuck in gridlocked traffic and abandoned their vehicles to flee on foot. People reported seeing much of the community go up in flames, out of 22 homes only two survived fires including firemen’s homes lost and supermarkets, businesses, restaurants, schools and a retirement center. Paradise is about 180 miles north-east of San Francisco. Rural areas fared little better. The homes with propane tanks exploded in flames. ‘They were going off like bombs,’ said Karen Auday, who escaped to a nearby town. In Hollywood people suffered recurrent Biblical wild fires affecting celebraties’ paradise homes. The wild fire came so quickly residents had no time to gather medications or documents. Firefighters carried people from homes, put them in empty seats of the neighbours’ cars, said Carol Napoli, 74. Napoli left with friend, friend’s son and her mother in her 90s had to leave behind her oxygen tank too risky near fires. It was reported people sought refuge overnight in the church. A few minutes of news shows sudden tragedies, traumas, earthquakes, floods volcanoes, wildfires, flash floods, rivers in deserts due to climate changes. Seas and rivers are polluted by plastic waste damaging flora and fauna of natural beauty of the earth. Ozone damages the carbon cycle causing acid rains destroy crops, causes cancer in the animal food chain consumed by humans. The toxic chemicals sprayed to increase a hybrid genetic modified food with a synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides are all accumulated damages. Hitech robots and machines replace humans jobs so billions unemployed through no fault of their own. Conglomeration of pressure on deprived families exploited by a few inner circles all add up to God’s Wrath to fastrack doomsday destructions. GOD unleashes destruction reconstruction in stages through earthquakes, volcanoes, natural disasters, wildfires, sinkholes, landslides, mudslides, tsunamis, capture attention of people to wake up and be prepared for Rapture. Though Jesus said, there will be trouble in the world God provides escape for eternal life to recreate perfect sinless world for those who believe. All who doubt, mock, are left behind to go through worse things yet to come. Jesus said the world has NEVER such evil before and will NEVER see such evil again after Armageddon. It is in Bible people will cause wars to cull populations while building the caves for themselves to hide in. But is biggest joke because nobody hides from God to any safe place beyond God’s reach. Scripture says there is nowhere to go to from HIS PRESENCE, if you go under the sea God is there, if you go above the skies God is there. It is time for a change of heart to examine yourself and seek God’s Mercy and Grace because these perilous times are getting worse. When God instructs HIS angels to increase damage to earth it will destroy one-third of the humans, one-third of trees, one-third of seas and rivers one-third of ships sink in the sea. Confusing climate patterns can distort perception to disorient people, animals, gadgets by 24/7 unusual light changes affecting navigation systems, weather changes of chem trails, fracking leaving whales trapped in shallow waters. Make personal choice to obey God to be in HIS Kingdom through HIS Son Jesus Christ. God is slow to anger, so does not want anyone to perish delaying HIS Wrath but releases these warning signs to alert people to pay attention before it is too late. So scientists confirm these events in the Bible predicted to unfold globally daily. It is decision time today to choose to believe God’s Word to be saved for an eternal life under Jesus Christ in Israel.

I remember taking walks on clear nights with friends and family pointing out to the stars in the sky and telling me their names. I learnt about the various shapes and names of these stars and still fascinated to see as many as possible when there are no clouds blocking our view. Another thing is because I am excited to see these stars at times I literally dream watching these stars and pointing them out to people. A particular favourite star is regularly seen more than 11 times in my dreams. Orion is pointing in various directions in the sky on recent locations according to different seasons and ecliptics. I read more on NASA sites about astronomy and people interested in stars as hobby. Much is written about stars but feel the joy strolling and looking out to discover star patterns and laughing so fascinated with others I discuss it with. Amateurs with powerful telescopes take amazing photos they discovered and is well-documented so seen by millions all over the world online. Also the teaching materials in schools and colleges and universities. Clouds sometimes prevent enjoying fresh air out and about under the stars pointing to the stars. There are 88 officially recognized constellations in the sky with astronomical patterns with a fascinating long history. Forty-eight of the constellations are known as ancient or originally named by Greeks and probably by Babylonians and other earlier people. After the 15th century, an age of great discoveries and worldwide navigation the southernmost parts of the sky became known to man and charted. Across entire sky large gap filled in dim stars between them. Recent astronomy grouped the constellations in gaps after more powerful telescopes has revealed outer space. The evening sky, between bright star Capella and Big Dipper’s bowl are two examples of modern constellations. The first is “camel-leopard,” Camelopardalis, which in Latin means giraffe. The other Lynx, one of two animal constellations with identical Latin and English names is Phoenix. This celestial feline is dim hard to visualize by naked eye. The paintings of artists reveal indepth detail of constellations and featured paintings teach people the shapes and symbols of constellation. These makes it easier for younger ones to learn about stars and adults remember the Constellations of the Northern Sky.
Johannes Hevelius (1611-1687) a 17th century Renaissance man placed it in the sky. Aside from being astronomer, Hevelius was an artist, engraver, well-to-do man of affairs and a leading citizen of Danzig, Poland. Interestingly, the old astronomy books and sky charts, which depicted the constellations as allegorical drawings, placed the lucida (brightest star) of Lynx in the tuft of its tail. From these drawings it would seem that nearby Leo Minor, the Smaller Lion, is about to provoke a cat fight by biting Lynx’s tail.Although the telescope was just coming into general use during Hevelius’ time, he openly rejected the new invention. In star atlas of 1690, he actually tucked a cartoon into a corner of one sky chart showing a cherub holding a card with the Latin motto “The naked eye is best.In creating Lynx, Hevelius chose a cat-like animal that possesses excellent eyesight. Lynx itself is a region devoid of bright stars, Hevelius openly admitted that you would have to have the eyes of a lynx to see it. A faint star pattern now no longer recognized is Felis, the Cat, a creation of 18th century Frenchman, Joseph Jerome Le Francais de Lalande (1732-1807).“I am fond of cats,” he said, explaining his choice. “I will let this figure scratch on the chart. The starry sky has worried me quite enough in my life so now I can have my joke with itAlthough this celestial feline does not exist today, cat fanciers will be consoled by that there are three other members of cat family Leo (the Lion), Leo Minor (Smaller Lion) and Lynx well situated and close together in current evening sky. I’ve always wondered if Felis might later inspired the New Jersey cartoonist Otto Messmer to create curious, such a the mischievous and inventive and little character Felix, the Cat.Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille (1713-1762) is considered the pioneer in astronomy. Between 1751 and 1753, a hardworking French astronomer was stationed at the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, he catalogued positions of 9,766 southern stars in 11 months. Is best remembered for inventing 14 constellations he added to southern sky. Although they are all still officially recognized today, they are composed mostly of very faint stars, which formed patterns that generally are dim and pointless. Unlike the larger, brighter constellations based on myths and legend, Lacaille chose to honour inanimate objects. NASA graphics offer an introduction to these constellations in Southern Hemisphere evening sky. Antlia Pneumatica, Air Pump, created by Lacaille around the year 1750. Despite dim, faint stars officially recognized today as constellation. Its name is shortened to Antlia, the Pump. Above Pump is Felis the Cat no longer recognized. The Lacaille’s constellations include the Sculptor’s Chisels (Caela Sculptoris). Compasses (Circinus), a Chemical Furnace (Fornax Chemica) Pendulum Clock (Horologium) a Carpenter’s Square (Norma), Hadley’s Octant (Octans Hadleianus), aj Painter’s Easel (Equuleus Pictoris).Also Mariner’s Compass (Pyxis Nautica), and others Rhomboidal Net (Reticulum Rhomboidalis) Sculptor Workshop (Apparatus Sculptoris), the Microscope (Microscopium), Telescope (Telescopium), Table Mountain (Mons Mensae), was overlooked by Lacaille’s observatory. Heber D. Curtis (1872-1942), director Allegheny Observatory in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania saw chart depicted director’s creations and said: “It looks like somebody’s attic!”

God’s Still Small Voice heard by Elijah in troubled times helped him to make the necessary decision to bring changes to the whole nation of Israel and himself. Rumbling earthquake noises preceded the fires announcing God’s Presence. To hear God’s voice requires listening to a still small voice. Almighty God is often perceived as talking in an exaggerated hyped high pitched thunderous voice of magnitude proportionate to His Size. It is surprising God chose to speak in that still small voice. This means we are to hear God during the quiet and the still moments of life too.

See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven.

Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.
