THE FUTURE – PART XXXVIV

So we bring you the final installment of THE FUTURE. God’s Word has proven true throughout. We’ve chronicled how the prophetic has happened, is already happening – or is setting up for fulfillment. It looks like judgement is upon us. We as a nation – as a culture – as a Church – as a world – has turned from the One True God of the Universe – to follow our own way. Yet still there is hope. REPENTANCE: THE ROAD TO RESTORATION “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2Peter 3:9) So here’s the set up. Our world is in a mess. Circumstances and nations are aligning exactly how the Scriptures said they would. We are living in very critical times. Yet still the scoffers are scoffing saying “Where is the promise of his coming?”. (2Peter 3:4) So where is God’s heart in all of this? Despite our rejection, despite our rebellion, He still wants us ... [More]

THE FUTURE – PART XXXVII

Over the course of these last several months, this series has been steadily building the case that the Bible contains the key to understanding the times in which we are living. It is a very specific and precise book that tells us not only who we are now, but lays out for us our future destiny. Read in context it gives us a blueprint of events to come. At some point we will see the Rapture of the Church. Taking out the timing of that event we’ll also see: The Psalm 83 War, an Interlude of Peace, the War of Gog & Magog, the Return of All Jews, the Entrance of Antichrist, the Abomination of Desolation, the Great Tribulation, the Battle of Armageddon #1, the Return of Christ, the Judgement of the Nations (sheep & goats), the Millennial Reign, the Battle of Armageddon #2, the Great White Throne Judgement, Eternity. That’s what the future looks like. More importantly it reveals to us identity and character and much of the plan of the very God of the Universe. I tell you truthfully, ... [More]

THE FUTURE – PART XXXVI

We are looking at the final stages of Man’s Rebellion against God. Last time we looked at the world-wide delusion put forth by the False Prophet and the Antichrist. We saw how a Global Antichrist System will rise and control every aspect of human activity. A revived paganism will be at the center of the religious component of this new Babylonian System. But Babylon will fall. And all that’s left is God’s judgement, the redemption of the world…….and Christ’s coming in glory to rule and reign His People. The Judgment Of God We are looking at the end of the 7 years of the Tribulation. Man’s rebellion has run its course. Then shall Messiah come, mounted on a “white horse”, the one called “Faithful and True and in righteousness He judges and makes war”. Then occurs this incredible scene: The creatures, (mankind), take up arms against the Creator. But it is not surprising that they are no match for Him. Here is the scenario laid out in Revelation 19:19-21. “And I saw the beast, the ... [More]

THE FUTURE – PART XXXV

The stage is set for the fulfillment of God’s purposes. Satan has had his way with the world. The Great Deception is almost complete. Eternity is but steps away. THE END OF THINGS “Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Luke 21:32-33) The rebellion that started in the Garden is coming to its inevitable end. For centuries Satan has laid the groundwork, preparing the hearts and the minds of people to abandon the way of God and accept his rule. In the last days a False Prophet will come to power using “lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved”. However note the very next passage. It is “for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had ... [More]

THE FUTURE – PART XXXIV

Most recently in this series, we’ve been looking at the struggle between Jesus and the Pharisees that punctuated his entire ministry. We found that many of the Pharisees seemed motivated by their connections to the pagan religious systems that had filtered down from the days of Babylon and Nimrod and Semiramis. The Jewish version of this emerging cult gave birth to Kaballah and its offshoot, Gnosticism. It has continued through the centuries, ensconced in the inner trappings of the secret societies, including the higher levels of modern-day Masonry. This struggle did not end with the conclusion of Christ’s earthly ministry. It continues to this day – with implications for even the End of the Age. Implications Now, comprehending the nature of the struggle between the Pharisees and the Son of God, it becomes easier to understand Jesus’ words of condemnation found in the eighth chapter of John’s Gospel. It is there we find that Christ draws a clear distinction between the world ... [More]
