Is there a good reason why I believe weíre in the end-times? In a
word, YES! However, Iím well aware that my simply stating it does not
make it so and I pray that throughout your search for Truth you guard
your mind with the Word of God and donít take my word for anything
without checking Godís Word to see if what I share is so. Iíve tried to ensure I do just that in my
research I present here.
Isaiah 46:9-13 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none
else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the
end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are
not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I
will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the
man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken
it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do
it. Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from
righteousness: I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far
off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in
Zion for Israel my glory.
Isaiah 48:3-7 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they
went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them
suddenly, and they came to pass. Because I knew that thou art
obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass; I
have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came
to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol
hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath
commanded them. Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye
declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even
hidden things, and thou didst not know them. They are created
now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou
heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.
This question of importance in watching the end
times can easily be answered by the following scriptures. If you hold the
Bible to be the Word of God, then it is your foundation for Truth. And if we are
told to watch, then it is best that we understand what weíre watching, especially if it
is so important as for Christ to make such a great point of it. The first
answer Yeshua gave to the
question of the signs of the end was to not be deceived. Revelation is
central to understanding the detail of Bible prophecy and this is how it
Revelation 1:1-3 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to
shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he
sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of
Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this
prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the
time is at hand.
3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and
hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will
come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come
The Bible repeats the words of
Christ and disciples regarding the coming of the end. This includes
our responsibility to watch. That is what this website is about,
bringing everyone up to date quickly what the Lord has shown us in
His Word and continue to watch events in the news. But as to what
the Lord has to say...
Matthew 24:36-44 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven,
but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be. 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, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all
away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the
field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding
at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch
therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth
come. 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. Therefore be ye also
ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
The coming of the Son of man, Yeshua the Christ, is directly
related to a time of sudden destruction, unexpected by the world
until it began. In
John 14:1-3 Yeshua said that He was
going to prepare a place for us at the Fatherís house and
He will come to gather us to Himself. Christ is coming to take His bride to
the marriage of the Lamb. This fits very well with the following
scripture linking the waiting we are currently doing for Christ to
come back for us.
Matthew 25:1-13 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their
lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and
five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil
with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the
bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a
cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those
virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise,
Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 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. 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. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord,
Lord, open to us.
Matthew 7:13-23 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you
therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour
wherein the Son of man cometh.
Relating this to Christians today, we are the wise and foolish
virgins. We are all waiting for Christ to go to the marriage of the
Lamb. The oil is the Holy Spirit, given to us upon acceptance of
Yeshua as the Messiah who took on the sins of the world. Through
obedience to Godís ways and relationship through prayer, the Holy
Spirit anoints the body of Christ, His church. Not everyone who says
they are a Christian truly acts like it though. God said that if we
love Him, we will obey His Word. There are many Christians today who
look no different than the world that rejects Godís Word. These are
the foolish with no oil in their lamps and therefore no fuel for the
flame that lights our path through the Word of God. When Godís Word
directs our spirit, we conform to His image of Love and by our
obedience show our love for Him. This is the kind of bride the Lord
is coming back for. The others will not enter into the marriage.
Godís wrath is for the children of disobedience.
Ephesians 5:1-8 Notice what the focus of the next passages are regarding
Godís Word to those who love Him.
Mark 13:32-37 But of that day and that hour[coming of the Son
of man]knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven,
neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed,
watch and pray: for ye know not when
the time is. For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his
house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye
therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house
cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the
morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you
I say unto all, Watch.
Luke 12:16-40 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord,
when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they
may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord
when he cometh shall find watching:
verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down
to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the
second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those
servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what
hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered
his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore ready also:
for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
Luke 21:34-36 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with
surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon
you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the
face of the whole earth. Watch ye
therefore, and pray always,
ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things
that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
5:1-11 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto
you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a
thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden
destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they
shall not escape. <-[Like the days of Noah, sudden
destruction]But ye, brethren, are not in darkness,
that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of
light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore
let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch
and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and
they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day,
be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the
hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain
salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or
sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves
together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and
that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin
Christ said, ďBehold, I come as a thief.Ē A thief, if he
is good, comes and goes without anyone seeing Him, taking those things he
desires. God is perfect, and so He is a perfect thief, taking what He
holds valuable, the wise virgins,
bride. If you look at all
the scriptures about the day of the Lord, it is a day of
and wrath. It appears 31 times in 29 verses in the Bible.
Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
<-[6th Seal]before the great and
terrible day of the LORD come.
Revelation 6:12 And I beheld
when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a
great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and
the moon became as blood;
sixth seal is before Godís wrath is poured out.
However, God promised escape from this time for those that love
Him. Luke 21:34-36 He also said that if we love Him, we will
obey Him. This explains why God says His wrath is for the
children of disobedience. Once the bride is gone to the judgment
seat of Christ and the marriage of the Lamb, the wrath
of God is poured out on the earth. The wife then return with Christ in glory upon
His return to earth to take the kingdoms.
Revelation 19:7-8; 11-14
This is why we are
told so many times in scripture to watch. The only way we can effectively
watch is to understand what weíre looking at. Fortunately, God doesnít do
anything unless He first reveals it to His servants the prophets. Amos
3:7 We have those writings in the Bible, and when we understand the
foundation, the future is revealed through scripture very clearly. He also
said that when we obey Him we are no longer His servants, but His friends
and so He will reveal His plans to us. John 15:14-15
This is what I
will present here and elsewhere on this website, the Bible passages that reveal Godís plan through His Word, and
itís been there for thousands of years. So why all the different opinions? I
believe that many people donít take the Bible seriously. They
symbolize everything in scripture so that nothing means what it says. Instead,
it becomes a pick and choose search to find meaning. Unless it doesnít make
sense or line up with the whole council of God, we should take the Word for
what it says. God is not the author of confusion, but at the same time just as
we arenít to throw pearls to swine, so God does not reveal the details of
prophecy from a surface reading. We must understand the whole council of God
and understand important precepts.
Isaiah 26:9-13 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to
understand doctrine?them that are weaned from the
milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be
upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line
upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with
stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this
people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may
cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing:yet they would not hear. But
the word of the LORD
was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a
little; that they might go, and fall backward, and
be broken, and snared, and taken.
We arenít going to find complete doctrine in just one scripture
all the time. But taking every scripture together as Truth
reveals a bigger picture. Precept must be built upon precept
first though. By understanding foundational principles first and
then building understanding from there, we assure that our
foundation is solidly defined according to Godís Word so we can
see how it matches up with the rest of Godís Word.
Israelís importance and central place in end-time prophecy. If that one thing
is missing, all of prophecy becomes a confused jumbled mess. Things that
should be clear as written must be reassigned to the church to make us the
central figure of Revelation. People can and have found scriptures that can
lead us to lean that direction. The problem is those arenít the
only scriptures. Israel is the apple [lens] of Godís eye. The
lens of the eye provides the focus. If our lens does not match Godís, then
what He wrote from His perspective will be blurry and undefined for us.
However, if we put on the same lens as God, prophecy becomes crystal-clear
because what we see is in focus with Godís Word. This is where the Holy Spirit
comes in. It was by Him the Words were written through the
prophets, therefore it is through His guidance we understand
what is written.
understand Bible prophecy, but think itís too complicated? If
you take the Bible literally and interpret symbols with the Bible, all you
have to do is read and put it all together. Thatís what Iíve done in trying to
document all of my Bible studies. It is important above all though, that you
have the guidance of the Holy Spirit to truly understand Godís
Word. Iíve linked all the reference material for
you in separate studies through many important Bible prophecy topics. Iím no
expert though, Iím just a normal guy reading the Bible. I asked God to show me
His plans, not my desires and He has answered that prayer more
than I thought possible. But itís
important not to just believe and accept whatever I tell you, but to look it
Acts 17:11 Thatís why Iíve linked all the relative material I can think of
to make it easy to catch up to whatís happening. Then you too can watch on
your own and communicate it with your friends and family for Godís glory! The
best part is, itís all from His Word.
2 Peter 1:19-21 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well
that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the
day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that
no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For
the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: butholy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Can we know
details about the future from the Bible?
John 15:14,15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his
lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I
have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold
fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch,
I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what
hour I will come upon thee.
This is apparent that there are two possibilities. Either you will be
caught off guard when Christ comes or you wonít. That state of readiness
is determined by one condition. Are you watching for Him? The fact that
we can watch and not be caught unawares is very clear. Hebrews 9:28
re-enforces this idea because according to that passage, Christ ďwill appear the second time without sin unto salvationĒ
to them that look for Him. This means that if weíre watching, He
wonít come like a thief. Thatís the other alternative, and through Bible
prophecy, thatís exactly what God does, he tells us details about His
coming in His Word. They are found with the leading of the Holy Spirit in
the Bible when you request it. Stop
and make your request now.
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing,
but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
The Bible is what was revealed to His
servants the prophets and was passed down through the millennia for us. God
told Daniel toward the end knowledge would increase,
Daniel 12:4, and since Bible prophecy tells
future events (to the day just like the first 69 weeks of
Danielís 70 Weeks prophecy) and God wonít do anything without letting us
know, we can expect to find the answers, the Truth, in the Bible. There is
only one Truth. Having that Truth depends on how much one relies on
the Bible for their foundation. Relying on our own perceptions is fatal
because we donít have full knowledge, none of us and not even all of us put
together. Not having all the facts causes fatally bad
decisions and beliefs. Where do you put your foundation? I trust the
King James Bible.
To understand the universe and why it all works the
way it does, you must understand the Creator of that universe because the
Creator makes the rules.
The problem is that nobody knows the Bible inside and out in all perfection.
Indeed, many skim through it not defining their foundational points before
adding to the misunderstood definitions. Itís like traveling through space. If
you are even one degree off in your charting at the beginning, by the time you
go the distance to your destination, you are way off the mark. Itís the same
thing with Bible prophecy. If you havenít defined and founded your terms in
the Bible solidly, then every new piece to the puzzle of Bible prophecy you
try to add wonít fit with the whole. Itís at that point that many are
willing to adjust slightly or spiritualize the actual meaning in scripture to
make things work. Most of the time, they probably donít even realize theyíre
doing it. I did that for a while myself but ultimately my search is one for
Truth and there is only One Truth.
Now I donít claim to know everything. In fact, thatís why I started from
scratch in my Bible study of the end times toward the end of 2005. I decided
to start off with the
exact-day prophesies of Daniel and Revelation because
you canít misinterpret numbers and taking God for His Word, these are exact
numbers of days between events. They must be written there for a
reason. From there, I found that I had to define my
terms according to scripture. I discovered this through
several Christian bulletin
So many people had different ideas of what the
tribulation is, or what the
first resurrection is. They all sounded good when I didnít really do the
research myself, so I stopped listening to them all and dug into the Bible.
When I did, I found that Amos 3:7 was an absolutely 100% true statement
of Godís Word to us. Not only did the exact-day prophecies lay out the
week of Daniel with amazing detail, but when combined with a solid Biblical
foundation for the terminology, I didnít have to force any pieces to the
puzzle, they all just fell into place.
In building a house, it is with the framework we begin. It is the
core design structure to which everything else is attached. By taking
the Word of God as Truth and building the framework in the timeline of
human history from what He told us, our framework for Bible prophecy is
revealed and that is a precept that gives foundation upon which to build
understanding from other scripture.
I know some would hear all this and say Iím claiming exclusive understanding
or something. But my defense is in the Bible because that is my foundation.
Besides, prophecy is of no private interpretation. The same words are written
there for everyone. What meanings people decide to put on those words is the
problem. Sure, everyone says that the Bible is their foundation, but why do
some of their ideas go against passages in the Bible?
I have faith that what the
Bible has told me is 100% true. Double
check my studies please. Iíve created a Bible study guide on my website
that links to the main Bible studies and foundational points.
I donít care if you believe me, just
trust the Word of God. In fact, donít believe anything I tell you,
compare what I share yourself in the Word.
We all need to check our motivations. Are we out to prove a point
and get people to believe, or do we want to know the Truth, even if
it goes against what other people have taught us our whole lives?
Donít trust men, trust the Word. This is my search for Truth shared
with those who would listen because I love you and the Truth is
Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that
they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the
scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 Quench not the Spirit.
prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
Abstain from all appearance of evil.
Once again, I donít know everything. But,
I know what I have read in the Bible,
and my interest in sharing it is that nobody thinks we can really know the
truth of the matter. They believe this because of all the deception that our enemy has thrown in
to disorient us through history. Thatís why I cried out to God for His
Truth to be shown to me. He is faithful to answer everyone of us. Iím no more
special to God than you are and I firmly believe that if everyone takes the Bible for what it
says, they can all see the exact same things I do. We are one body under
Christ our head and He has given us One Word, His Bible with which
to understand His will and His design.
I have yet to find a conflict in the Bible for a
pre-wrath harpazo of
the bride, while Iíve found scriptures that disprove
(as traditionally understood at the end of the 3 1/2 years). Iíve also
found that ďgreat
tribulationĒ has been a term too often thrown around without sufficient
research into defining it.
Bottom line... God did not leave us blind. He promised we would know what is
going on so we wouldnít be caught off guard by His coming like a thief. This
principle is evident throughout the scriptures where God has let those who
obey Him know what is going on. Thatís what Bible prophecy is! God warning
those who would listen and believe and obey of the things to come that
directly affect our lives and even our eternity.
18:17-23 And the LORD said,
Shall I hide
from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become
a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed
in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his
household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice
and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken
of him. And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great,
and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether
they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me;
and if not, I will know. And the men turned their faces from thence, and
went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
And Abraham drew near, and said,
Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
By Abrahamís response in asking how
many righteous would be saved, God did tell him His plans. So did He tell
Daniel 9. As well as John in Revelation. These arenít there for no reason,
they lay out the details. We canít figure it out on our own, ask for guidance
to the Truth again and again while reading the Word and discussing it here and
elsewhere. I believe the only detail the Bible doesnít reveal with research in
the Word is the day and hour timing of the harpazo of the bride. God will
provide understanding for everything else as needed or allowed. Most of all,
it is prophecy that is testimony of Christ. I believe this should be
a large part of the activity of the body of Christ in waiting and
watching, that is understanding Bible prophecy and the center of it,
Yeshua Ha Mashiach.
Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto
me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy
brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for
the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have
their senses trained to discern between good and evil.
The greatest need in the body of Christ today is discernment.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more
in real knowledge and all discernment.
DISCERNMENT: ďaisthesis,Ē The ability to make judgments. The
Bible clearly warns that in these last days (see Hebrews 1:2) the
ability to discern between what is of God...and what is NOT OF GOD,
will be critical.
1 John 4:1
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to
see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have
gone out into the world.
In my 30+ years of involvement in church leadership and ministry
I have found that the average church-goer (Christian or no) is one
of the most gullible and easily influenced and manipulated people on
2 Corinthinans 11:13-14
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising
themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan
disguises himself as an angel of light.
The Bible warns that in these last days,
False prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders,
so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect
ďMany will be misledĒ (see also
Matthew 24:11). Recent events in Lakeland, Florida show how easily
this can happen. GodThoughtsWired! exists to help equip you with the
discernment skills necessary to escape the delusion that will
mislead the ďmany.Ē
GodThoughtsWired! exists so that when Jesus says,
I never knew you. Depart from Me you who practice
HEíS NOT TALKING TO YOU! The Bible tells us to,
1 Thessalonians 5:21
Examine everything carefully; only hold fast to that which is
1 John 4:1
Test the spirits to see whether they are from God...
Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness
but instead EXPOSE THEM.
And yet, all too often, whenever I practice these verses someone
will invariably respond by quoting the scripture that says,
DO NOT JUDGE...
While I do admit that on the surface this statement seems pretty
clear-cut, ďDo not judge,Ē I have to wonder why Jesus seems to
contradict Himself in John 7:24 where He declares,
JUDGE WITH RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT.
Hmmm...First Jesus tells us not to judge and then He demands that
we do! Tomorrow we will search for the answer to this ďapparent
ďTo Judge or not to Judge...That is the Question?Ē
Do not judge, lest you be judged.
How many times have you heard this verse used to try and stop
someone from speaking out against false teaching? If I had a nickel
for every time someone warned me ďnot to judgeĒ Iíd be a very, VERY
RICH MAN today. You know, when you think about it, the term ďfalse
teachingĒ is a very ďjudgmentalĒ statement, isnít it? In this age of
tolerance and relativism (ďtruthĒ is what you want it to be) even
the term itself, ďfalse teachingĒ has become
politically...incorrect, hasnít it?
And if Jesus is really saying here in Matthew 7:1 that it is
wrong to judge, then why would He give the OK for judgment just four
verses later in verse 5? And why would He go on to teach, in the
same chapter, how important it is to ďbeware of false teachers,Ē admonishing us to
ďjudgeĒ them by their fruit (see Matthew 7:15-20)?
Have you ever given serious thought to this entire chapter?
DID YOU KNOW THAT JESUS ALSO SAID:
Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous
Brothers and sisters, the Bible CLEARLY teaches that we must
ďjudge all things,Ē lest we fall into error.
Recognize and Avoid Deceivers
by Del Kralman (Beth Dorshe Emeth
Ministries 4430 South 158th; Tukwila, WA 98188)
Matthew 24:4,5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no
man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and
shall deceive many.
5:1-3 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need
that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the
Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and
safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman
with child; and they shall not escape.
Remember how Peter expressed the danger of listening to the deceivers of
the Endtimes, with the possibility that it may have an adverse effect on the
saints when he said:
2 Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know
these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of
the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
It is so very important to recognize the deceivers. Truly the only way
to know who the deceivers are, is to be so familiar with the Truth that the
deception stands out like a mountain on a clear day. The only way to
effectively deceive someone is to make the deception look so real and good
that they canít tell the difference. Even more, it must look so good that
people will accept it instead of the Truth and prefer it over the Truth.
Satan is the greatest deceiver of all and that is exactly the approach he
ďSecular Humanism,Ē which humanizes God and deifies man; and the
Movement,Ē which takes the Hindu approach and deifies everything, has become
popular in the western world as an acceptable course to finding the ďtrue
power withinĒ to help men reach their maximum potential. Because it is Ďthe
great lie,í presented in such a desirable way, most of the world has fallen
under itís spell. They have been deceived and drawn away from God Almighty.
It has even crept into the teachings of many teachers and preachers in
churches today, which indicates the craftiness of Satan in using these
influences to deceive the very elect, if possible. This brings into focus
the great urgency to call people back to God before its too late!
ďOne of the most important and most neglected messages of the church
today is the message of Jesusí second coming. Our fear of controversy has
caused us to put this truth aside keeping silent on this vitally
important, life-giving truth. Jesus is coming soon. In the Old Testament,
there are twenty times as many prophecies about Jesusí second coming as
there are about His first advent. In the 260 chapters of the New
Testament, the second coming is mentioned 380 times. It is truly a most
