CALL of the LORD

 

REPENT.

Mark 1:14-15 (King James Version)

14 Now 

after that John 

was put 

in prison, 

Jesus came 

into Galilee, 

preaching the gospel 

of the kingdom 

of God,

15 And saying, 

The time 

is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom 

of God 

is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe 

the gospel.


The CALL is being sounded, LOUD, and CLEAR.

Here are other commands of the LORD, for these very confusing, and challenging times:


BE PERFECT.

Matthew 5:48 (KJV)

48 Be ye therefore perfect

even as your Father 

which is in heaven 

is perfect.


BELIEVE in JESUS.

John 6:47 (KJV)

47 Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

He 

that believeth 

on me 

hath everlasting life.


WORSHIP GOD.

Luke 4:8 (KJV)

8 And Jesus answered 

and said unto him, 

Get thee behind me, Satan: 

for it is written, 

Thou shalt worship 

the Lord 

thy God, 

and him only 

shalt thou serve.


BE BORN AGAIN.

John 3:5 (KJV)

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man 

be born 

of water 

and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter 

into the kingdom 

of God.


KEEP GOD's COMMANDMENTS.

John 15:10 (KJV)

10 If ye 

keep my commandments, 

ye shall abide 

in my love

even as I 

have kept 

my Father's commandments, 

and abide 

in his love.


LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

John 15:12 (KJV)

12 This is my commandment, 

That ye love 

one another, 

as I have loved you.


WATCH.

Matthew 24:42 (KJV)

42 Watch therefore

for ye know not 

what hour 

your Lord 

doth come.


PRAY to the FATHER.

Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)

9 After this manner 

therefore pray ye: 

Our Father 

which art 

in heaven, 

Hallowed be 

thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, 

Thy will be done 

in earth, 

as it is 

in heaven.

11 Give us this day 

our daily bread.

12 And forgive us 

our debts, 

as we forgive 

our debtors.

13 And lead us 

not into temptation, 

but deliver us 

from evil: 

For thine 

is the kingdom, 

and the power, 

and the glory, 

for ever. 

Amen.

The Prophecy of Jesus Regarding ISRAEL

 

38 Behold, 

your house 

is left 

unto you 

desolate.

39 For I say 

unto you, 

Ye shall 

not see me 

henceforth, 

till ye 

shall say, 

Blessed is he 

that cometh 

in the name 

of the Lord.

Matthew 23:38-39 (King James Version)


Do we really know what Jesus said about Israel?

And WHEN He intends to return to the chosen nation of God?

Those two verses above says all.

As if to support my Scripture discovery this morning, the Holy Spirit of God directed me back to an article I wrote last year -- featuring an important video -- when I was just into my 8th day as a born-again Christian:

"The Best-Kept Secret in Judaism"

The video reveals why modern-day Jews don't know their MESSIAH.

Why is Israel the chosen nation of God?

That will be for my future articles.

For now, know that Jesus was very clear when He'll show up again in Israel:

"Ye shall 

not see me 

henceforth, 

till ye 

shall say, 

Blessed is he 

that cometh 

in the name 

of the Lord."

Matthew 23:39 (King James Version)

ANCIENT Symbolism on the RETURN of CHRIST

 

"Jesus was not just a Jew, 

He was a Galilean."

   -- Brent Miller Jr.

That's the premise of film maker and "Rapture" expert Brent Miller Jr., in comparing the Second Coming of CHRIST to a Galilean wedding, something he refers to as a "prophetic wedding timeline".

Watch the short 10-minute video featuring Nathan Jones of Christ in Prophecy interviewing Brent Miller Jr., of Ingenuity Films who explains that Jesus spoke to people in a way they can understand -- as a Galilean and as fishermen -- comparing the RETURN of CHRIST to the ancient, traditional Galilean wedding culture and custom.

You will appreciate how this short video supports the RETURN of CHRIST as prophesied in SCRIPTURE.

As in a Galilean wedding, not even the "groom" would know the day, but only the "father".

32 But of that day 

and that hour 

knoweth no man, 

no, not the angels 

which are in heaven, 

neither the Son, 

but the Father.

Mark 13:32 (King James Version)

In the ancient Galilean wedding tradition, the doors would be shut behind the visitors for the week-long celebration and the guests have to be ready at any time the father of the groom would declare it's time for the wedding ceremony to transpire.

The "parable of the 10 virgins" clearly compares the 1st century Galilean wedding, to the second coming of CHRIST, and how "guests" must be ready any time:

25 Then shall 

the kingdom 

of heaven 

be likened 

unto ten virgins, 

which took 

their lamps, 

and went forth 

to meet 

the bridegroom.

2 And five of them 

were wise, 

and five 

were foolish.

3 They that were foolish 

took their lamps, 

and took 

no oil 

with them:

4 But the wise 

took oil 

in their vessels 

with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, 

they all slumbered 

and slept.

6 And at midnight 

there was a cry made, 

Behold, 

the bridegroom cometh; 

go ye out 

to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, 

and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish 

said unto the wise, 

Give us 

of your oil; 

for our lamps 

are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, 

Not so; 

lest there be 

not enough 

for us 

and you: 

but go ye rather 

to them 

that sell, 

and buy 

for yourselves.

10 And while they 

went to buy, 

the bridegroom came; 

and they 

that were ready 

went in 

with him 

to the marriage: 

and the door 

was shut.

11 Afterward 

came also 

the other virgins, saying, 

Lord, Lord, 

open to us.

12 But he answered 

and said, 

Verily 

I say unto you, 

I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, 

for ye know 

neither the day 

nor the hour 

wherein the Son 

of man 

cometh.

Matthew 25:1-13 (King James Version)

In the Book of Revelation, the RETURN of JESUS is clearly explained in this verse -- akin to a wedding:

7 Let us be glad 

and rejoice, 

and give honour 

to him: 

for the marriage 

of the Lamb 

is come, 

and his wife 

hath made 

herself 

ready.

Revelation 19:7 (King James Version)

Are We Tampering With God's Creation?

 

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: 

thou hast covered me 

in my mother's womb.

14 I will praise thee; 

for I am fearfully 

and wonderfully made: 

marvellous are thy works; 

and that my soul knoweth 

right well.

15 My substance 

was not hid 

from thee, 

when I was made 

in secret, 

and curiously wrought 

in the lowest parts 

of the earth.

Psalm 139:13-15 (King James Version)


How far has science gone?

How far has technology gone?

Have they respected ORIGINAL Creation?

You will want to know more about "convergent technologies" from the Chuck Missler video below:


The late Chuck Missler spoke of "convergent technologies" which involved nanotechnology, robotics, and genetics.

Strangely, I dreamt of three elderly scientists at a church -- over a decade ago.

They looked worried, huddled, deep in conversation.

Interestingly, they were molecular biologists.

I knew then, as I know now, that something's up.

A tampering of God's SACRED Creation.

Only by the GRACE of GOD can we survive it all.

And yes, you really must know why you have to be closest to JESUS now -- only then will you see why JESUS was sent in the first place.

It is also good to know why we were created by God, so we can give our LORD proper honor and gratitude.

The world has gone astray for many reasons, and the reasons can be found through Scripture alone.

How to Survive These Crazy Times

"Be not wise in thine own eyes:
 fear the Lord, 
and depart from evil."

Proverbs 3:7 (King James Version)

What an amazing find!


The idea for the verse was on my mind, and I searched for the EXACT verse, and that's what I was led to.


Usually, before I write an article, an idea, or a thought, plays on my mind, and I let the Holy SPIRIT of God lead me to the PERFECT verse.


For a whole year now, I cannot write, unless SCRIPTURE accompanies me.


I only want God's perfect verse to use for my articles, just so you know.


And today, THREE things were addressed -- to my question about how to conduct ourselves in these crazy times.


The verse above already spelled it out:


"Be not wise in thine own eyes:" 

We must be child-like, and thus, teachable.

We must trust God alone, for ALL knowledge.

We must be humble, for in truth, we know nothing. 


"...fear the Lord," 

We must obey God alone.

We must follow the 10 Commandments.

We must give God the proper honor through PRAISE


"...and depart from evil."

We must acknowledge our sinfulness.

We must ask JESUS to forgive all our many sins.

We must ask that the Holy Spirit be given to guide us each day.


And I think to myself, what does the Holy SPIRIT want me to write next, to further support those THREE instructions?


Well, Spirit led me to capitalize THREE words, from those three phrases, just as it came through me.


In order of appearance (or importance?) these words showed up:


ALL

PRAISE

JESUS


Holy Jesus!


I must leave it at that.


The Holy SPIRIT of God wants that message sent out here.


To survive these crazy times, it's very clear.


This is all that needs to be done:


ALL PRAISE JESUS.

JESUS Gives Us the SIGNS of the END Times

 


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?

Matthew 24: 3 (King James Version)


This is how JESUS answered:

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.

Matthew 24:4-14 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:15-22 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:23-26 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:27 (King James Version)


28 For wheresoever the carcase is, 

there will the eagles be gathered together.

Matthew 24:28 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:29-31 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:32-35 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:36-39 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:40-42 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:43-47 (King James Version)


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.

Matthew 24:48-51 (King James Version)


(Note: I purposely took the verses a phrase and a thought, at a time, because the Holy SPIRIT taught me to do that -- at least for myself -- and it helps me understand the SACREDNESS and PRECISION of the LORD's Words. Let the LORD Jesus speak to you, in a way you can understand, too. All verses sourced from biblegateway.com)

God Seems To Like The Work I Do


"Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:"

Colossians 1:28 (King James Version)

Funny, that was the verse that showed up today, as I edited an article I had not shared with anyone, until today.

That verse PRECISELY reflects the focus of that article -- on Jesus' LAST instructions to His apostles, after His resurrection: 


“…that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”

Luke 24:47 (KJV)

And all because, the Holy SPIRIT led me to click the Bible Gateway link today, making me curious, to see the "Verse of the Day", just in case God had a "surprise" for me.

Of course, He did.

That seems to be how things are happening for me now.

And getting pretty often, too!

I write an article, I give credit to Bible Gateway, and if I check the "Verse of the Day", it often echoes the VERY subject of my article.

It's not weird.

It's beautiful!

It's magnificent!

It's GOD!

All I do is allow the Holy SPIRIT to guide me.

We write together, and beautiful things happen.

It may reach you.

It may touch your heart.

It may even anger you.

But I leave everything to the LORD God.

I write, because God created me to write.

I write, because there's so MUCH to write about God.

I write, because there's a deep urgency to share God's WORD with you.

I write, because I'm a follower of Jesus.

I write, because the Holy SPIRIT's teaching me many wonderful things.

I write, because I am a warrior for God.

And, in the process, God rewards my trusting and obedient heart, with little surprises that tickle my soul.

Then I know, God appreciates my little efforts.

I also write, to remind myself of the important verses the Holy SPIRIT leads me to.

It's as much for you, as it is for me.

If you have a child-like heart, you can identify with what I'm sharing.

Your heart will be as tickled, knowing God's paying attention, and blessing us for our faithfulness -- and yes, for our undivided attention.

I will forever be a child in my heart and I know God likes what I'm doing, writing about the TRIUNE God.

But why did I get into Bible Prophecy, the most complicated part of Scripture?

GOD saw my heart was finally open to JESUS, and sent the Holy SPIRIT to instruct me.

I got close to Jesus, because of those two videos on America.

I "heard" the "call".

After that, and instantly, I decided to become a born-again Christian on the same day.

There was no question -- it had to be Bible PROPHECY.

The world has gone completely astray, despite the many warnings sent out by many prophets, and primarily JESUS.

I felt the urgency.

So, I started reading the Bible, taking down notes, and the articles "formed".

It was the work of the Holy SPIRIT in me, teaching me, coaxing me, prompting me.

God knew what I had in me.

The only thing He waited for, was my complete surrender to Him.

And that's when He sent the Holy SPIRIT to instruct me.

How do I know it's from the Holy SPIRIT?

How can it not?

All I write about is GOD.

He is the MOST beautiful FOCUS of all!

How JESUS Will Return


9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Acts 1:9-11 (King James Version)

When I woke up this morning, I woke up to the idea that HOW Christ will return was of utmost importance.

Surely, the Holy SPIRIT of God was prodding me to explore it.

It had to be written, with the EXACT words depicting this glorious event, even as we don’t know "the time, nor the season", of Christ’s return.

But along the way, as I searched for the verses, I came upon the LAST instructions of Jesus to His disciples, so I wrote that first.

And now, this second part completes the whole picture, showing the verses of Jesus' return.

If Scripture said:

“…he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.”

Acts 1:9 (KJV)

And, that:

“this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."

Acts 1:11 (KJV)

And Jesus also said:


27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Luke 21:27 (KJV) 

The Book of Revelation says:


7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Revelation 1:7 (KJV) 

Then, that means when Christ returns, He will also come out from a cloud -- in all His GLORY!

Of course, no one knows when.

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

Matthew 24:36 (KJV)


But there will be signs, for sure, and Jesus talks about it here.

The LORD Jesus will return for those eagerly waiting for him.

28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Hebrews 9:28 (KJV)


John, the apostle, was also shown a vision of the LORD's return during the end times, this time, to make war.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

Revelation 19:11-16 (KJV)


Do you eagerly await the LORD’s return? 

I do.

Because of that "great voice out of heaven" that told John:

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 21:4 (KJV)


Like a child, I eagerly await the LORD, even as I feel, when I’m studying under the guidance of the Holy SPIRIT of God, my tiny hands clasp the LORD’s hand, and I skip and hop alongside Him, happy at the lessons I’m learning from the Lord Jesus.

And He looks down upon me, in great amusement, even as He knows the little one repents for all her many errors, desiring to be forgiven, and doing her best to know the EXACT instructions of the LORD, so she won’t err anymore.

At the end of the day, she closes her eyes, offering her life each night and day to the LORD, asking Him to lead the way, so she will remain on the path that He has paved for all of us.

All we need to do is follow Jesus, if we wish to share ETERNAL life with Him.

Everything starts with the desire to follow, and to love, after which, the Holy SPIRIT will complete our CHRIST education.

I do all these for myself, and I write all these for you, so we may rejoin Christ, on the day appointed by God, only because our hearts are worthy of the LORD.

We cannot rejoin the Lord, the way we are now.

The apostle John urged us to be worthy of Jesus:


28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

1 John 2:28 (KJV) 

We must also be born of the SPIRIT.

Only then can we understand things of the Spirit.
