WHAT DID JESUS SAY ON TAX

IMG-20190718-WA0003.jpgMatthew 17:24-27;22:15, Mark 12; Luke 20, Jesus said, Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, to God what belongs to God. The Biblical accounts of Gospels in Capernaum said tax collectors of two drachma temple tax asked Peter if Jesus pays tax, he said He does. If Jesus paid taxes then what did Jesus teach His disciples? Matthew records two taxes  Jesus paid in Matthew 17:24-27; 22:15-22 temple tax and tax to government in Rome. People asked Jesus: “Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar?” It was a ploy to set a trap for Jesus. But He saw through their attempt to manipulate Him and falsely accuse Him of asking people not to pay. 15634591710442531419311844554429.jpgSo obliged to pay the tax, Jesus paid His taxes with the coin from the mouth of a fish Peter caught. Tax collector cornered Peter and asked if Jesus paid the temple tax. Later in Matthew 17:2427 Jesus said to Peter at home, “Simon, does the kings collect taxes from their own children or from other people? Peter answered the others. And Jesus replied we don’t want to cause trouble go cast a net in the lake and the first fish you catch open mouth, and you will find a coin. Use coin to pay your taxes and mine.” Take it and give them for my tax and yours.”15634589315132523190425229438762.jpgJesus told the Pharisees and Herodians to give to Caesar things belong to Caesar in Mark 12. The issue is controversial as people disagree on how the government spends money. Some people feel angry because their needs are not met though they pay tax. The Bible example of Jesus to pay taxes again in Gospel of Matthew Mark and Luke are other account of the Pharisees trying to trap Jesus to find the reason to accuse him. In Matthew 22:15-22 Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap Jesus to use His words against Him.Jesus on Taxes in the BiblePharisees disciples with Herodians said “Teacher,” they said, “we know you are sincere so teach the way of God in truth. You are not influenced by men. Tell us, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” Jesus, knowing their evil intention said, “You hypocrites why are you trying to trap me? Show a coin for paying tax.” They brought him a denarius and He asked them, “Whose head inscription?” They said, “Caesar’s. Then He said to them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God belongs to God.” When they heard this, they were amazed so they left him and went away.20190718_152609.jpgIf Jesus refused ​to pay or He condemned Caesar they will accuse Jesus of inciting rebellion. People had no choice but to pay as Jesus also did. And Zachaeus a tax collector climbed a tree to see Jesus passing by. Impressed Jesus dined in his home during meal he decided to restore money he extorted by collecting taxes in Mark 2:13-17. In Psalm 24:1, The earth is the LORD’S and everything in it but life requires money to function, pay staff, provide services, resources, processing, printing costs, transporting goods. And maintaining the structures and repairs restoration, regeneration, grounds and gardens etc. Too numerous to list costs of services provided by the nations. Amazon, Google, Wealthy Offshore accounts do not pay tax proportionately fairly like others.20190718_152057.jpgJesus and His disciples voluntarily gave to the Temple tax and state to set a good example. Taxes paid directly to local tax collectors who decided what people pay. Tax collectors paid by charging people more to earn money.  Levi, the apostle was the customs official in Capernaum taxed imports and exports as he liked. The Jews hated him because he worked for Rome and betrayed his countrymen.  Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector for the Jericho district notorious for taxes changed meeting Jesus of Nazareth.15634592789297575198766104501144.jpgPeople are saying the tax exemption for Churches are unfair making mega rich pastors super wealthy multimillionaires Church members struggle to pay bills, food, mortgage, health insurance, fees or basic necessities of life. Private jets, mansions get bigger, fleet of cars longer but members poor. Its a major source of tension rich multi billionaires are state sponsored in extravagant lifestyles. Schools reduce hours, hospitals cut staff budget reduced. The churches use tithe, offerings, donations, for salaries wages, cost of projects, feed orphans, help poor under the radar, homeless, HIV, disaster flood victims, TV ministry, preaching, teaching Gospel Message of Jesus Christ, Evangelism etc. among wonderful work  of God. Admission fee puts people off so first time Benny Hinn was at NEC entry was free. Thousands turned up with no room for overflow solved crowd control next visit with ticket admission. Only a few people turned up venue was almost empty. God said nobody must enter HIS Presence empty handed so Jesus talked about the widow’s mite even poor give. In Exodus 23:15 God said, no one shall appear before ME empty-handed. Also in Exodus 34:20 God said no one must appear before ME empty-handed. Again in  Deuteronomy 16:16 God said do not appear before the LORD empty-handed.20190718_151828.jpgGap between the rich and poor widens causing hunger and the stress, pressure, unemployment, lack, in deprived areas. No resources for disadvantaged so most public servants cannot get on the home ownership ladder. Many depend on the food banks despite their hard work and education. Zero hour job wastes time of trained staff without job or income. And the popular highly influential Christian leaders spew wrong ideas as ‘Christian Ideas.’ Don’t be misled…Study the bible yourself to know the truth of the Word of Christ. Read Bible as JesusFollowers and Christian’s. Some think Churches must follow Jesus’ example to provide fairly for the least in society too. So gap between rich and poor widens as many continue to suffer daily, starve and die in the most advance developed wealthy countries. Unfortunately a Class divide disproportionately allocate lion share to themselves as the world watches them flaunt it in their faces daily. 1 Timothy 6:10 says the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Craving more money is cause of all evil in doing so wander from true faith so pierce themselves with sorrow.20190718_170247.jpg20190718_152338.jpgIMG-20190717-WA0000.jpgChristian family is fined taxes saying it is against God’s will to pay taxes. The  Christian family refused to pay income tax because its “against God’s will” but are ordered to pay more than A$2m tax (£1.1m $1.4m) to Australia’s tax office. It is Christian debate Rembertus Cornelis Beerepoot and Fanny Alida Beerepoot of Tasmania do not pay income tax since 2011 as their religious right. Their farm was seized and sold by a local council in 2017 for not paying seven years of tax rates. Ms Beerepoot told the court: “We don’t own anything because it is God’s.” The siblings represented themselves in Supreme Court of Tasmania Wednesday, after did not pay $930,000 in income tax or other charges in 2017 ABC News said.The Beerepoots leave court on 17 July 2019Rembertus Cornelis Beerepoot (left) and Fanny Alida Beerepoot (far right) seen here outside the court in Tasmania. Mr Beerepoot argued the law of God is the “supreme law of this land” and making people pay tax weakens dependency on God, leading to “curses… in the form of droughts and infertility.” “Transferring allegiance from God to Commonwealth means rebelling against God breaking first commandment,” he said, according to the public broadcaster. In judgement, Associate Justice Stephen Holt said he believed Beerepoots’ beliefs is genuinely held but there is no specific reference in Bible to support their argument. “In my view, Bible effectively said civil matters and law of God operate in two different spheres.” So the siblings ordered to pay sums of – Ms Beerepoot A$1.17m and Mr Beereport A$1.16m to cover income tax, administrative penalties and all interest charges” and costs in court documents.

JESUS’ VICTORY OVER beast

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

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

TREASURED MEMORIES SON

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

THIS PEOPLE NEVER ANGRY

15619803537592179922344463155949.jpgBriggs recollected in her landmark 1971 book “Never in Anger,” about how calm and collected everyone was jarcontrast that created against her own unruly emotions. Even when some truly rage-worthy things happened like a teapot falling and smashing against floor the Inuit never betrayed a hint of anger. An “Emotional control is highly valued among Eskimos,” she wrote in the book. Indeed, maintenance of emotions under trying circumstances is essential sign of maturity, of adulthood.” Why so calm, she wondered? And more importantly, how can the rest of us get there? For the answer, Briggs looked to how children responded in difficult circumstances appeared to be something they learned from their parents. An simple parenting technique of Inuit is “Never scold child.” It became clear to Briggs when a young boy threw rock at her, related in a CBC interview, she didn’t berate him angrily, rather told him calmly it hurt. Instead of rage she told him real consequences of his actions caused her pain. Decades later, the writer Michaeleen Doucleff followed in Briggs’ footsteps in visiting Iqaluit, Canada, “in search of parenting wisdom. Said that teaching children to control their emotions is very important she writes in NPR. Doucleff found that a common strand among Inuit parents is: Across the board all mothers mentioned One Golden Rule: Don’t shout or yell at small children.”20190701_130919.jpgAmong Inuit Arctic community Doucleff found the people practiced the theory that screaming at a child only teaches the child to scream. It is a vicious circle, the University of Pittsburgh researcher Ming-Te Wang noted in a 2013 study. “It is tough call for parents because it goes both ways: the problem behaviours of children create the desire to give harsh verbal discipline. That harsh discipline may push adolescents toward the same problem behaviours.” The Inuit society seems to have learned lessons long ago, and managed to break the cycle. And so  “Traditional Inuit parenting incredibly is nurturing, gentle, tender,” as Doucleff writes. “If you took all parenting styles around the world and ranked them by their gentleness, Inuit approach would likely rank near the top.” What kind of children does that society produce? The kind who live harmoniously in world’s harshest climates often with threadbare resources. Survival hinges on making the most efficient use of natural world yet group still manages to be at peace with itself and with others. Maybe that’s because it’s also the kind of society that teaches kindness above all else. Jesus said do not let the sun radiate or set on your anger. Let it go for peace of mind.

JESUS ATTENTION MIRACLES

1559765839202-1772898553.jpgJesus attention miracles by some people in the Bible is amazing. A totally mad man lunatic, insane, violent, bound in chains living in cemetery, cuts himself RECOGNISED and worshipped Jesus at Gadarenes. He fell on his knees, asked Jesus to deliver him from 1000 demons tormenting him. Jesus healed him and cast out demons into pigs drowned in the sea. An insane man seeking Jesus’ help by himself is a Miracle as families struggle to control them. The madman in Matthew 8:28-34 called on Jesus so sane who hear Words of salvation for Eternal life, believe and be saved too.1559767269622-1772898553.jpgAn army captain sought Jesus’ help for servant’s health at home. Although sick man was not physically present pleaded with Jesus for his healing and humbled himself as a man of great power and with authority. He asked Jesus to speak the word and man will be well because people listen and obey his commands. So much more will healing COMMAND of Jesus be taken more seriously by God in heaven to heal him by faith. Jesus is so impressed with his belief in healing power of God. His faith has made man whole and he was healed so there is no distance in prayer in Jesus Name.1559814275142-1772898553.jpg A boy is healed by Jesus in Mark 9:14-25 when his father brought him to the disciples. Jesus came to His disciples and saw the great multitude around and the scribes disputing with them. 15. People greatly amazed run and greeted Him.16 Jesus asked the scribes, “What they discussed?” 17 A man in the crowd said “Teacher I brought my son who has deaf spirit and fits. 18 It seizes him and throws him down so he foams in mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I told Your disciples to cast it out but they could not.” 19 Jesus said O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long do I bear with you? Bring him to Me. 20 They brought him to Jesus, as the boy saw Him the spirit convulsed so he fell on the ground, wallowed, foamed in the mouth. 21 He asked father, “How long is this happening to him, he said, from childhood. 22 He is thrown in fire and water. Have compassion, help us.” 23 Jesus said “All things are possible to all who believe.” The father cried with tears, “Lord I believe help my unbelief!” 24 Jesus rebuked unclean spirits, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more.” 25 The boy was healed from epilepsy and Jesus said some deliverances need faith for powerful ministration with the gift of faith to believe. The father’s faith has turned from unbelief to believe in faith in agreement son’s miracle manifested. Jesus told His disciples some miracles need fasting and prayers.1559767896115-348722457.jpgAnother fascinating true Jesus seeker is a woman not allowed to be in public to announce her sickness. She is supposed to isolated until clean before daring to get near or touch Jesus, HOLY MAN OF GOD. She pushed through the crowds and the press to touch Jesus’ garments and her bleeding stopped. Her choice of treatment is interesting after years of seeking medical help in vain. She spent lots of money but got worse and broke so sought Jesus the Great Physician. One point touch contact with Jesus has made her completely whole by her faith. The disciples challenged Jesus about virtue flowing into her. Impediments or some restrictions cannot stop the bold daring faith action to seek Jesus despite all the obstacles in their way for God’s help. In Mark 5:25- And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. She heard about Jesus came up behind in the crowd and touched his cloak 28 she thought, “If I touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in body free from suffering. 30 Jesus realized power had gone out from him. He turned to crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 Disciples said the crowds is thick yet you asked, ‘Who touched me? 32 Jesus look around to see 33 The woman, knowing who came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith healed you. Go in peace and be free from suffering.”wp-1559815442204..jpgMark 5:22-43 Jesus raised this dead girl when a synagogue leader Jairus came to Jesus and fell at His Feet. 23 He pleaded, “My little daughter is dying please come and heal her. 24 Jesus went with him so a large crowd followed….35 While Jesus was speaking people from the house of Jairus said. “Your daughter is dead don’t bother Jesus anymore.” 36 Jesus heard them and told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” 37 He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James, John brother of James. They came to home of synagogue leader, saw people crying and wailing loudly 39 He went in and said to them, “The child is not dead just asleep 40 But they laughed at Him. He put them out He took the child’s father and mother and disciples with him into room where the child was. 41 He took her hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!”( it means “Little girl, rise up. 42 The girl stood and walked, she was twelve years old. They were surprised 43 And Jesus gave strict orders not to let anyone know this, and told them to give her something to eat.1559767621187-1772898553.jpgA Syrophoenician woman calls on Jesus to heal her daughter but told it’s not yet the time of the Gentiles. Jesus is called FIRST to the House of Israel then all the nations. Her persistence paid off when she said crumbs from the table are good enough for the dogs. Her faith touched Jesus so she received healing on behalf of her daughter. She boldly approached Jesus directly and got her miracle that day. Believe by faith you are worthy of God’s Grace and Mercy even if the odds are against you in Jesus Name.1559768570244-1413976713.jpgCurious children followed crowds to see Jesus and to watch miracles. They came too close near Jesus as disciples wanted to remove them from Jesus. Then Jesus intervenes and said let the children come to me, DO NOT HINDER THEM for theirs is the Kingdom of God. Jesus also healed children, taught them to be kind to share food and He raised others from death as God uses children in the Bible for HIS GLORY. Jesus said anyone that hinders them it is better a millstone is hanged around their neck to drown. An outcast madman or ostracised bleeding woman and Gentile woman and Highly successful powerful people in Authority and the children are all worthy of God’s Grace, healing power, Mercy and God’s Comfort in time of need in Eternal life and in imminent Rapture Resurrection.
