Greg Laurie on the End Times

Would you like to know more about the end times and what it all means?

How about the antichrist or the Rapture?

If these things confuse you, or you find it too complex, let Pastor Greg Laurie explain more in the video above.

In his usual clear way, Pastor Laurie clarifies many things about Jesus, the Bible, Rapture, the antichrist, and the end times -- all based on Scripture.

In speaking of the antichrist, he quotes the following verse:

"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."

Daniel 7:25 (King James Version)

Born in Long Beach, California, this pastor has had a very interesting life.

He was not raised in a Christian environment but embraced Jesus when he was 17.

A prolific broadcaster and author, he has written 70 books.

He also says: 

"God is sovereign over all history."

There is really nothing to fear, especially if you have become a true Christian.

What I liked about this video is also his stand that we focus more on the coming of Jesus Christ, and not who the antichrist would be.

It is also true that there are many "antichrists", those who are against Christ.

It is good to be awake and aware, thus, this verse is relevant:

"For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."

2 John 7 (King James Version)

A CHRISTMAS Greeting From Prophecy Lessons

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2:11-14 (King James Version)

I'll keep this CHRISTMAS greeting short and sweet.

Prophecy Lessons wishes you all the Heart of CHRIST in you!

Jesus' Instructions on the End Times

If you really want to know about how the end times will be, it's time to read JESUS' own Words from Matthew 24 (King James Version):

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

It would also be important to read Revelation 1-22 (King James Version).

A Tale of Two American Women

I woke up today, after a beautiful dream, wondering what the Holy Spirit wanted me to write about, even as I had just written a post yesterday on 17 short fiction books Spirit had inspired me to write since 25 November 2019.

Well, Joseph, my Bible teacher shared a video on women who have ceased teaching yoga and reiki.

That video inspired me to write this article, for the host was once a prolific new age author.

In fact, I've read many of her angel books since 1998.

I had also been initiated in reiki, a Japanese way of healing, but have not really practiced it. I haven't studied yoga, thankfully.

It was thus, refreshing and a complete surprise, that the host had become a born-again Christian in 2017. 

Another woman who may interest you is one who is running for the American presidency

I have also read many of this woman's books in the past.

So, one woman left the new age to become a Christian in 2017; the other is using her new age credo to run for president of the U.S. in 2020.

One is comforting; the other is disturbing.

Americans -- as well as all people of the world -- must wake up and be more aware, especially in this season of the end times.

Here are two articles you may want to read, written by the former new-ager:

"10 Reasons Why Christianity and New Age Cannot Blend"

"20 New Age Practices are Infiltrating the Church"

Since the fall of Eve, woman has been used by the dark forces for she has great influence on men, and in the world.

These are interesting times, indeed.

I'm glad women are waking up, including myself.

I've made my stand and became a born-again Christian on 6 September 2019, and have turned my back totally on all things not of CHRIST.

Everything you need to know about God is actually in the BIBLE, the Word of God.

When the Holy SPIRIT touches our hearts, we really become transformed.

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

1 Corinthians 15:10 (King James Version)

Holy Spirit-Inspired Fiction

I had no idea I could write short story fiction before, but I found I could, mid-November, following a lead about a site for short stories.  

I called my character SCRIBU, short for "Scripture-Based Understanding", for all my writing since 6 September 2019 are all based on the Bible, the WORD of GOD.

Where before, I had many references for my research, now, I only refer to the BIBLE, for it is the BOOK of GOD's TRUTH.

All my fiction books have the following main characters:
SCRIBU, the Dream Warrior, dreams,
SKAL, the Chief Demon, schemes,
STONE, the Chief Warrior Angel, protects, and
The SON, the Word of God, saves.

If you had been reading the BIBLE, you'd know that demons are real, as shown by JESUS many times when he healed the sick.

32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.
33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.
34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Mark 1:32-34 (King James Version)

On 25 November 2019, I created my first story -- "ARMAGEDDREAMS", and the amazing thing is that in just 24 days, I had written 17 books for the SCRIBU Series on spiritual warfare.

I know I write fast, but this was phenomenal.

But ought I be surprised?

The Holy SPIRIT inspired me, every step of the way.

Click the 17 titles below and read a sample chapter if you wish: 

Book 1, ARMAGEDDREAMS –12 ways the sleeping world will perish. 

Book 2, SCRIBU –Scribu, the Dream Warrior, in the constant battle of God and evil.

Book 3, THE ANCIENT BLACK BOOK – Scribu discovers the forbidden book by accident.

Book 4, THE ALABASTER ANGEL –The darkness has spread alarmingly in the world.

Book 5, RECONCILIATION –Scribu chooses God, and gets a surprise.

Book 6, THE JEALOUS GOD –God abhors idolatry; Scribu tells you more.

Book 7, THE HIDDEN GIFTS – Scribu’s gifts just won’t stop. A curse or a blessing?

Book 8, SCRIBE TO SPIRIT –Scribu discovers her true gift and destiny.

Book 9, THE BABY CHRISTIAN   –Scribu avoids the devil’s snare.

Book 10, THE DESTROYER’S DEVICES – The many ways Skal traps man.

Book 11, SCRIBU GETS GOD RIGHT – On getting God right, through Scripture.

Book 12, IMPERVIOUS TO EVIL – The life of 6-year-old Scribu, the Dream Warrior.

Book 13, THE PHLEGM FACTORY – Can a common cold destroy humanity?

Book 14, DEATH OF SELF-IMPORTANCE – Does self matter so much?

Book 15, MASSIVE MONEY MACHINE – Money has become god in the world.

Book 16, SNUFFING THE SPIRIT – Young Scribu becomes a threat and must be destroyed.

Book 17, ENEMIES OF THE WORD – Scribu exposes four enemies of God.

I enjoyed designing the book covers, using Amazon publishing tools, but on two distinct instances, I was taken aback at how the cover seemed to have "chosen" itself.

Like, I was viewing some possible images, not really having decided on a cover yet, lo and behold, the image was "chosen" for me.

I'm featuring the cover of the 17th book above which SPIRIT chose last night, to my great amazement. True enough, it was the best depiction of the story the Holy SPIRIT and I had just created.

Working with SPIRIT since September has been filled with many beautiful surprises, foremost of which is a greater understanding of JESUS and the BIBLE.

Jesus did say before He left us:

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."

John 14:26 (King James Version) 

Now, all my writing is SCRIPTURE-based, factual, and real.

What Happened to the 12 Tribes of Israel?

After the previous post, "Why Was Israel the Chosen Nation of God?", I was now led to the 44-minute video above.

Narrated by film maker, Ed Skelding, you will love traveling with him to vital sites all over the world as he answers the following questions:

What are the 12 tribes of Israel?

Where did they go?

What became of them?

In which countries and cultures were they incorporated?

The video will answer the interesting questions, showing you possible places, cultures, and museums which may put the pieces of the puzzle together.

Another interesting resource is a "quick, illustrated guide" on the 12 tribes of Israel.

You will love Jeffrey Kranz's clear and dynamic approach to teaching us lay people about these important tribes from the Bible.

If you've read the Books of Moses, you can identify with his humorous narrative.

He also shares his original blog post with Logos, where he once worked as an employee.

Another cool feature about Kranz's posts is being able to immediately see the particular Bible verse indicated.

That helps for active reading.

Live and learn, and remember it all.

The Bible's the coolest BOOK of all.

I really like GOD's Story.

Why Was Israel the Chosen Nation of God?

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;"

1 Peter 2:9 (King James Version)

Being a student of BIBLE Prophecy, and all things CHRIST, I have chosen to educate myself by reading the Bible, listening to videos by Christian ministers, studying verses shared by my Bible teacher, Joseph, writing my own short stories about SCRIBU, the dream warrior and scribe (now a series of 15 books on Amazon), and studying all pertinent things about Jesus.

Through this blog, I share with you my many findings.

I woke up early this morning, as I normally do for Christ, and here's a video that I found compelling -- something I never thought I'd be drawn to -- the amazing Israeli Air Force:

That video shared a link from its producer and author, Joseph Wouk, the youngest son of Herman Wouk ("Caine Mutiny", "Winds of War", "War and Remembrance".)

The same video also led me to Wouk's information-filled website, which tells you of Israel's rough relations with its many Arab neighbors.

I felt it was important to know more about Israel and how it figures in the end times, and why this country is so hated by its neighbors, making it on edge all the time -- which, the resourceful Israelis merely put in their favor, honing their battle skills to the max.

I continued to be fascinated by this chosen nation of God, considering Israel is but a tiny nation of over 9 million people (2019 estimate), covering a land area of only up to 8,500 square miles, with only 2.1% water.

I've heard of the kibbutz years ago, and am amazed at the fortitude, intelligence, ingenuity, and tenacity of this nation and its people.

After the video and Wouk's website, I was led to Professor Barnard C. Taylor's illuminating material on "God's Purpose in Choosing Israel"(from JSTOR).

Puzzling over why Jews had not really embraced Christ, even as He gave up His life for them, I wrote a post in September sharing a video from Dr. Eitan Bar, the young Jewish-Israeli theologian who found a cool way to reach the Jewish people and teach them more about Christ.

From this Wikipedia link, we'll also understand why the Jews are God's chosen people.

On another blog, I had also written, "Israel: God's Nation".

You will also want to know how Israel had become such a tiny land from this post, showing a historical video.

It was actually Dr. David R. Reagan's end-time videos that made me love Israel, appreciating this country chosen by God.

Here are some of Dr. Reagan's important videos, taking you to Israel himself:

"The Mountains of Jerusalem"

"On Walking Through the Old City of Jerusalem"

"On the Eastern Gate in Prophecy"

There is so much to learn about this hardy nation that is Israel, and its "peculiar people".

God obviously chose the Jews for reasons only known to Him, but through this blog post, we can get a glimpse of what it is, even as only God knows the BIG picture.

If you love God, and appreciate all that Christ did for you, you will want to know EVERYTHING about God, so your worship is real, and not counterfeit.

 “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”

Matthew 24:4 (King James Version)

You may want to read the whole section of Matthew 24: 4-31, where Jesus clearly tells you about the end times.

What the Son prophesied has already been happening for sometime now.

Be awake, and be aware.

Be like Israel -- be ready.

Two More Spiritual Warfare Books on Amazon

Are you following the SCRIBU Series on spiritual warfare?

If so, here are two more books "manufactured" almost in a day.

I'm just scribe to the Holy SPIRIT -- the Teacher of All Things -- encouraging me to create this short story series about a 26-year-old warrior called SCRIBU.

I've never written fiction for Amazon before, but when Spirit strikes, you must be in the ball game.

Why is she called SCRIBU?

Click this link to find out.

Here are the two titles now on Amazon:

Book 13, THE PHLEGM FACTORY – Down, and dumbed out. Can a common cold destroy humanity? Find out as Scribu, the Dream Warrior and Scribe, reveals her findings, first hand.

Book 14, DEATH OF SELF-IMPORTANCE – Does self matter so much? Scribu's led to powerful verses from Scripture, answering all the questions we have about life, self, work, God, and relationships. Of course, Skal, the Chief Demon and destroyer, rages at such vital discoveries.

You may also want to check the synopsis of the 12 other books through this link.

As always, I thank you for reading my posts, which are designed to lead us all back to GOD and SCRIPTURE, especially in this season of the end times.

Be awake, and be aware -- CHRIST draws near!

WORSHIP God with all your heart, and be not caught up in the false enticements of the world.

The Peace That Passeth All Understanding

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:7 (King James Version)

Wherever in the world you may be, however your life may be, find comfort in Christ.

Only the Son of God can give you the strength and comfort you need.

Commit God's Words into your heart and you will be strengthened each day.

The world is not of God, but perhaps, you are?

You'd know if you are, because you have not embraced the many enticements of this world, which do not have the care of your soul in its bosom.

The ruler of this world only cares to mock God, distracting us from worshiping God, aiming to destroy your soul, and leaving you unprepared for when Christ comes.

Humans have been caught up in pride, greed, vanity, lust, and materialism -- all giving you a false sense of power.

Only God can really save us now.

If you doubt me, look only to the world, to see for yourself the state of its soul.

It doesn't belong to God.

Get past the slick offerings, the marketing mania, the veiled intentions, the invented and projected needs, and the focus on addiction in all avenues -- capturing your soul for its dark purpose.

It has been bought, lock, stock, and barrel by Christ's adversary.

That's why Christ came in the first place, to wake us up, to bring us back to God, to teach us how to love His Father, to teach us how to love each other, and to show us eternal life.

In the process, Jesus had to fulfill Scripture and offer His precious life for us, so we may be saved.

While you are in the world, there will be no peace.

The only peace you can have is from Jesus alone:

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

John 14:27 (King James Version)

The world will not give you what it doesn't have -- peace.

For, it was built on chaos.

It is not of the Kingdom of God.

It you are a man of God , in the service to the Lord, you will know what I speak of.

Only God's Own can really see behind all illusion.

I thank Joseph, my Bible teacher, for sharing these verses with me today, which inspired this particular blog post.
