Putting Jesus Christ back in Christmas

Jesus is the reason for the season. Who would have even thought of such a concept where the Creator of everything would enter His creation in order to save the human race from its bondage to sin, death and the Devil?

The prophet Isaiah said this world happen.

Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

The name Immanuel means “God with us”. The name Jesus means “Jehovah is salvation” and Christ means “anointed one”. So, Jesus Christ means the anointed one who is the salvation of Jehovah.

The coming purge by the Roman whore of Revelation 17

In a recent previous article I suggested that leftist permissiveness has gone too far and there could be a purge coming from the religious right. What I did not say is that I think much of this purge will take place because of the influence of the Roman Catholic Church.

There may be a war with Islam to bring about the rise of Rome, or it could come about through Marian deceptions, or through some other means, but I am convinced that the whore of Revelation 17 is the Roman Catholic Church. It is this woman that rides the Beast/Antichrist into power.

God’s treat is no trick – trusting Jesus saves people

Rather than celebrating everything dead this Halloween the living really ought to find out how they can receive eternal life. God is not tricking us. The treat is that by grace God gives eternal life to all who believe that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead. The risen Savior now gives everlasting life to all those that put their faith in Him. He is a free gift of God. Salvation is not something that people can earn themselves.

The gospel of salvation is really simple but there are many in religion that want to trick people. They tell you that you have to do something to earn salvation.

Putting Heaven and Hell in a more biblical perspective

Most religious people think that after death those that did enough good works will go up to Heaven for eternity and people who did too many bad works will go down to Hell for eternity. They might be surprised that the Bible does not agree with their premise. First, salvation depends upon faith in the Lord, not in our own good or bad performance. Second, the Bible teaches that Hell will be done away with. It is thrown in the Lake of Fire. Third, the Bible teaches that the Kingdom of Heaven will actually at least partly exist on the Earth.

Religious leaders are the wolves that Paul warned about

Since the time of Babel there have been prideful self-righteous religious people influencing the world that think they should be honored and set above the rest of humanity. They claim to be enlightened people who speak for God and like to be called prophet, priest, reverend or some other exalted title for “holy men”. They pretend to be people enlightened by God but many of these religious leaders are actually megalomaniacs doing the work of Satan.

We see these religious examples many times in the Old Testament opposing the true prophets and anointed leadership that God raised up. When the Messiah came to Israel, it was the Jewish religious leaders that rejected Him and opposed Him.

12 steps to Laodicea

I of course believe the Lord’s seven letters to seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 had meanings to the seven historical churches that the letters are addressed to. Even so, the seven letters also gives instruction to all believers. I also believe that these letters are prophetically addressing the seven eras of the Church age on earth.

In the prophetic application Jesus is talking to the predominate visible Christian identity on earth. The letters are in chronological sequence. Jesus speaks prophetically to each person within these seven visible identities through the words in these seven letters.

For the purpose of this post, I will just reflect on the prophetic.… continue reading

Collective Insanity on Planet Earth Peaks in “New England”

The reason the world needs saving is because mankind is clearly insane in his fallen state. Without God humans will collectively make destruction choices. A study of world history and the collective actions of present world leaders makes collective insanity on earth an undeniable fact.

Mankind without God will make the wrong choices over and over again. Like a very wise man once said, “there is nothing new under the sun”.

The elite of the world have the collectively insane idea that they are more highly evolved and can help the rest of humanity to evolve to become more like them.

Only two hundred million will depart in the Rapture?

I think some Christians assume that many more people will go in the Rapture than will actually go. Some think countries like the United States will be significantly depopulated because of the Rapture. I do not believe that will be the case. Perhaps only two hundred million people in the whole world will go in the Rapture.

There are seven church types on earth revealed by the Lord’s seven letters to the churches in Revelation. Even so, only the letter to Philadelphia says it will be kept out of the great trial on earth (Rev 3:10). The letter says that the church of Philadelphia was to be kept from the time of the tribulation because she kept the Lord’s word (biblical doctrine), did not deny His name (Jesus is the only name under heaven whereby people must be saved), and kept the word of the Lord’s return for His Church.

Don Koenig refutes Hebrew Roots works theology

An article by Rod and Hillary Thomas, quoting part of a featured article of mine, was posted on itsnotasyouperceive.com website. The website appears to be a Hebrew Roots website. These two people also founded the Qumran Family Church in Denver Colorado. My article was written to explain how one is saved. Since this is a critical salvation issue, I will respond to what they said. The full article I wrote is found here. It is in the featured article section of my website.

You might want to first get some information about the Hebrew Roots movement. The following articles should help.
