TRUTH or FICTION ?

Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction !

In GOD’s book you find the facts of mankind’s history…past, present and future. You find the facts about the origin of the earth, the universe and the facts about an Angelic Civilization created before us, still very much alive today living in a dimension around us, but not seen by us.

When I originally read Gods declaration that said it was He that knit me together in my mother’s womb and that He knew me before the foundations of the world were ever made… well what can I say… I wanted to go “BACK to the FUTURE”.

The imagination of our entertainment industry is producing movies based on what we know of the past and today. Then they draw from limited knowledge and postulate about what the future holds.

Amazingly if you look closely you will find Biblical themes and words from the Bible in their movies…especially science fiction. The most recent Superman parallels Christ in that mankind needs a Savior. The Transformers represent hidden guardians of mankind like the Angels watching over us, protecting us.

Transcendence takes mankind into our future state without GOD.
The same goes for the horror films that explore occult themes; many of which delve into the themes of Judgment written in the Book of Revelation.

Every scene of these movies and every word is nothing more than fiction portrayed as reality. The writers mix truth, error, fiction, legends and fairy tales together to weave stories that excite our imaginations.

I have found in studying the Bible a greater fascination with the Truth of God’s Word than the musings of men.

In a very real sense Truth is stranger than Fiction. God has already recorded the past, the present and the future. The fascinating thing is that you literally can read the end of the story if you have the courage to do so.

How Well Does Our TRIUNE GOD know You?

 

All through His word God makes it clear that He knows everything about us:
• The number of hairs on our heads
• He knew us before we were conceived
• He chose us when He planned creation
• He determined the exact time of our birth
• The days of our lives are written in His book
• Every good gift comes from His hand
• He loves us with an everlasting love
• His thoughts about us are more than the sand of the seashore
• He rejoices over us by singing

It is the wish / desire of God for you to be saved. For that to happen YOU MUST Seek Him with ALL your Heart, Mind and Soul. Hidden in the prophecies of the Old Testament is this message from God to both Jew and Gentile.

“I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. He is the exact representation of my being. He came to demonstrate that I am for you not against you and to tell you that I am not counting your sins.

My Son died so that you and I could be reconciled. His death on the Cross-was the ultimate expression of my love for you. I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love.

Receive my son as your savior and nothing will ever separate you from my love again…and you can come home to me.”

God is Holy and has made it clear that nothing less than perfect Holy people can enter Heaven. Since the fall in the Garden of Eden our race has been infected with a disease called Sin.

Since the beginning of time there has only been one Perfect, Holy Person that walked the earth…the God/Man…Jesus…who became the one perfect sacrifice for your sin and mine. The door of heaven opens through the Cross-and nowhere else.

This is the Promise of the ONE TRUE and Living God to all His children…to all those precious in His sight…to all those that come to HIM through HIS SON…that He is still on the Throne and He is involved in every detail of your life.

He knew you before the foundations of the earth were formed, and He called you into existence in eternity past. He will hold you in the palm of His hand until the day He takes you home to be with HIM in the future.

We are creatures of time…created by God for eternity… Today we live from one God Moment to another…in eternity we will live IN THE MOMENT… forever with God.

May HIS Joy and HIS Shalom fill all the days of your life as you live to fulfill HIS purposes for your life….Amen & Amen.

Can a Human Bind an Evil Spirit?

I am not looking for discussion or arguments. I just want to say this in love and not to anyone in particular, and would ask that my Christian Friends would take the time to investigate the following topic using only the Word of God.

Satan and his fallen angels walk this earth pretending to be angels of light. We do not have the discernment to know what is real and what is not real in either our earthly realm or the unseen realm where angels walk around us. Nor do we have any idea of the Will of God for any person we know or love in regards to their physical condition or their salvation.

Why would you think that you could command demonic angels?
Why do you think you can bind demonic angels?
Why do you think fallen demonic angels would listen to you?

You cannot tell demon angels or HOLY Angels what to do!
HOLY Angels will not even tell demonic angels what to do, nor will they curse them.

The HOLY Angels always do what they are told by the FATHER to do and say because HE alone orchestrates life events for each of us according to His Will not ours. So who are you to pronounce judgment?

Open your Bible and Check it out!

Jude 1:9
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

9 But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”

Acts 19:13-15
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

13 But also some of the Jewish exorcists, who went from place to place, attempted to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, “I adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14 Seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 And the evil spirit answered and said to them, “I recognize Jesus, and I know about Paul, but who are you?”

Job 1
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.
12 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he (JOB) has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the Lord.

Matthew 16:22-24
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

22 Peter took Him (JESUS) aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “God forbid it, Lord! This shall never happen to You.” 23 But He (JESUS) turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.”

2 Corinthians 12:7
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me (Apostle Paul) from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me—to keep me from exalting myself!

My dear friends, Do you still feel you have the power and the authority to do what Holy Angels would not dare to do?

GOD is Omniscient and Omnipresent. HE knows the past, present and the future of history, because HE wrote it. History is HIS- story!

You have no authority to tell satan or his minions where to go or what to do. Don’t you realize from the Scriptures listed above that even satan does the bidding of GOD. That satan is also GODS servant accomplishing GODs purposes not satan’s purposes?

You have overstepped your bounds. You have assumed for yourself knowledge you do not have and a power you do not have.

Stop fooling yourself. You are but dust and you are playing with fire.

AUTHORITY and JUDGMENT belong to God and His SON and to No One else; whether Human or Spirit.

GODS VOICE IS LIKE THUNDER

 

But when HE wants your attention HE Whisper your name.. He prepared my heart for its re-birth in 1985 in eternity past when I lived alive in HIS mind.

Hear HIS Words:

I knew you even before you were conceived… Jeremiah 1: 4-5
I chose you when I planned creation… Ephesions 1: 11-12
You were not a mistake… Psalm 139: 15-16
For all your days are written in my book… Psalm 139: 15-16
I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live… Acts 17:26
I knit you together in your mothers womb…Psalm 139:13
And brought you forth on the day you were born… Psalm 71:6

The day will come in the future when I will live within YOU.
I will never leave you nor forsake you because you belong to me. You are being prepared as a love gift for my Son…who loves you as much as I do.

His voice of soft thunder speaks of His plan. It contained only four simple points. With the economy of words that only God could use; these four points contained depths of knowledge beyond our comprehension. For who among those He has created can say they understand Him or even begin to know HIM.

Point One: God had a vision to create an ultimate Holy and Eternal World where God and man would co-exist. This vision became reality when God said, “Let there be Light….” And so there was a place where God and man could walk together in a garden, in the cool of the day.

Point Two: Sin entered into this pristine world, twisting the relationship between God and man. This disease born on the dark wings of a fallen angel named Lucifer spread to every man and woman made in the image of God for all time.

Point Three: Two worlds now existed side by side in two dimensions, occupying the same space but not the same time; God in one, and man in the other. But God promised to send His Son to redeem mankind and the world he lived in and re-unite both planes of existence…into ONE.

And so Emmanuel the God / Man was born into the world to die for the world and make it ONE again.

Point Four: In the beginning everything was made new. Then for a time everything new became old and life became a cycle of continuing birth and death. But just as God had created the beginning He also created the new beginning of the end.

God would bring forth new birth pangs that would ultimately give birth to a new blending of Earth and Heaven, a place where God and Man again would walk together FOREVER.

Will you be part of that new beginning?

Then you must answer the only question that echo’s through out time…the question Jesus demands an answer too.

Who do you say that I AM?

OUR 2ND COMING MESSIAH

Centuries before Christ was born His birth and career, His sufferings and glory, were all described in detail in the Old Testament Prophecies.

The information served as a fingerprint that would fit the hand of only one man in history.
Who He was to be……….Where He was to be born.
What He would do at His 1st coming.
When He was to come……….How He was to come.
How He would die……….When He would die…….When He Rose from the dead.

Christ is the only person ever born into this world whose ancestry, birth time, forerunner, birthplace, birth manner, infancy, manhood, teaching character, career, preaching, reception, rejection, death, burial, resurrection and ascension were all prewritten in the most marvelous manner centuries before He was born.

HIS Messianic Credentials Have Been Established:
A unique birth Isaiah 7:14 A unique life Psalm 40:7-10, Isa 50:5
A unique death Isaiah 53: 1-3, 6-7 A unique burial Isaiah 53:9
A unique resurrection Psalm 16:10, Isa 53:10

Does the Old Testament proclaim the specific time of the coming of the Messiah? According to Tradition the Jewish People are looking for the FIRST coming of their Messiah not the Second Coming. These traditions come from rabbinic interpretation of the Old Testament. Could it be that the Rabbis have missed something? There are four points to think about in identifying the timing of the Messiahs coming:

1.The Messiah’s appearance was locked into a fixed time.
2.That fixed time was while the Second Temple was standing before the Romans burned it down in 70 A.D. (Daniel 9:26).
3.The Messiah had to come from a specific lineage (the line of King David). This lineage was only verifiable through the Temple records which were destroyed in 70 A.D.
4.The Messiah had to die a violent death. (Isaiah 53, Psalm 22 and Daniel 9:26).

The Old Testament is clear in its statement by God through prophecy that the Messiah already came and is coming back again the 2nd time Very Soon.          

SIMEON

SIMEON
Luke 2, 25-35:

“ Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.”
The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

Simeon held the Lord of the Universe in His arms. He could now rest in peace because it would be the Lord who would now hold Simeon in the palm of His Mighty Hand. God The Father had fulfilled the Messianic promise of the ages to His children that the Messiah of Israel, the Christ of His Church, the SON of GOD would come to earth in human form, to walk among them…and He did.

The word Abba is a beautiful Hebrew word. It is the word we know as Daddy. This is the word God has chosen for describing Himself personally to you and I in HIS Scriptures. WE are His children and He is our Daddy…if you know HIM as LORD.

We walk through this life holding onto our Daddy’s hand. Then when He takes us through the front door into His house, our house; He will lift us up into His arms and give us a personal tour of the very room He has taken our entire lives to prepare for us to live in.

YOU MEN WITH CHILDREN who are reading this need to know your children are a blessing from the Lord. It is your responsibility to raise up your children to know their Creator and to know the Scriptures that tell the story about the Son of God.

Like John the Baptist, who came to prepare the way for the Lord. You also have been given the honor and the responsibility to prepare the way to your child’s heart so they will be able to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

GOD CALLS YOU to begin praying for their Salvation from the moment they have life in the womb. Then in LOVE, live your life before them and your wife and your God so there is no question in their minds about whom you belong to and whom you have chosen to serve.

Then maybe God in HIS Mercy to you will bless you by giving you the desire of your heart, the desire of my heart… that each one of our children and grandchildren will become a Child of the KING.

Isaiah…”To Us A SON Is Given

Romans 10: 14-15 says it all.

How can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him?
And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent?

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say…
“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News.”

Are you keeping the Good News to yourself…
the miracle of your changed heart?

God has filled my heart with dreams of passion, compassion and a desire to walk in the Truth… what about you?

May your Faith give you Courage to do great things, to be bold and touch someone’s life for Eternity.

I serve the God of Ancient Promises that are still coming true today.

The Prophet Isaiah said…”to us a SON is given.”
See for yourself.
In the manger… He is there.

The Apostle Luke said…”this same Jesus will come again in the clouds.”
See for yourself.
In the tomb… He is gone.

I lift up my voice to the Heavens with Praise
To the all wise God of Israel and the Church
…the Almighty, the Ancient of Days…
…the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

To the Father, the One who sent …
To the Son, the One who came…
And to the Holy Spirit, the one who stays…and now lives in me.

Amen and Amen,

Your ADVERSARY the Devil

Satan’s Beginning:
Ezekiel 28:12 “You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering …from the day you were created….you were the anointed cherub who covers…you were on the Holy mountain of God; you walked in the midst of the stones of fire, you were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you and you sinned. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty and you corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor”.

Isaiah 14: 12 “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! You have said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly…I will ascend above the heights of the clouds…I will make myself like the MOST HIGH.

Satan’s Work:
2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God”

1 Peter 5:8 “Be on the alert, your adversary, the devil prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”

Ephesians 6:12 “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Satan’s End:
Isaiah 14:15 “You will be thrust down to Sheol, to the recesses of the pit. Those who see you will gaze at you, they will ponder over you saying, Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook the kingdoms, who made the world a wilderness and overthrew the cities”.

Ezekiel 28:18 “Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you, it has consumed you and I have turned you to ashes on the earth, In the eyes of all who see you. All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you. You have become terrified, And you will be NO MORE.”

Every being God has made whether Angelic or human will remain immortal for eternity. Each will spend eternity in either Heaven or Hell….with the exception of Satan… his judgment is to be NO MORE.

Satan’s Effect on YOU:
2 Corinthians 11:14 “Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light”.

John 8:44 (Jesus said of Satan) “He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him, Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

2 Thessalonians 2:8-10 “Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders. And with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.

Mark 13:22 “For false Christ’s and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect- if that were possible.”

When God told Moses, he was going to die, Moses gathered Israel together one last time to speak to them for God. Moses reviewed the mighty works of God in their lives, then he prophesied two ways the Nation could go.

Both required a personal choice. Israel could choose life or Israel could choose death. Like Israel we too have the same choice. Israel only had the incomplete Word of God to make its decision on. We have the complete Word of God to make our decision.

Yet we mainly choose to hear the love, mercy and compassion of God preached. Rarely do we choose to hear of His other side. The side of Gods Holiness, and His Righteous Anger and that He is coming to Judge Sinners.

The Bible is clear when it says “do not fear the one who can slay the body, but fear the one who can cast soul and body into hell”. Jonathan Edwards once preached a sermon called “Sinners in the hands of an Angry God”…you and I do not want to be in the hands of an angry God.

We are living in the end-times, the last days as described in Bible prophecy. We have the Holy Spirit within us. YET, God speaks of the end times when He will give the world over to THE GREAT DECEPTION…this deception will be so great that if it were possible even the very Elect (you and I) would be taken in by its miracles, signs and wonders. These miracles, signs and wonders will point to the Anti-Christ who will be possessed by Satan. His miracles, signs and wonders will seem real to us because they appeal to our heart, our emotions, and our ability to rationalize everything in accordance with our desires.

The Lord also speaks of multitudes standing before Him in judgment, who will believe their works were good enough for them to get into heaven. They will say… “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name and in Your name perform many miracles? And then I (Jesus) will declare to them, I never knew you; DEPART from ME, you who practice lawlessness!”

REMEMBER JESUS

Three things to remember:

Don’t be afraid:
Too many of us are afraid to witness to people.
Too many of us are intimidated by non-believers.
Too many of us have weak faith and live in anxiety.

Don’t forget:
We forget who we are in Christ.
We forget that the Battle is His.
We forget that the Ending has been written and WE are on the Winning Side.

Don’t be ashamed:

Don’t ever be ashamed to say the name of the one who died for you. Don’t ever be afraid to defend HIM when people or worse your friends misuse HIS name. Don’t ever be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Jesus promises to be with you, always…in every situation.

The Battle is already won. No one can hurt you. The Bible says, “if God is for you, who can stand against you!

Jesus bought and paid for you…your orders are clear…don’t stand on the sidelines…get into the Battle.

When Jesus ROARED from the Cross “It is Finished” the veil covering the entrance to the Holy of Hollies tore open and the earth shook and the dead came out of their graves.

JESUS is the ONE who CAME, and the ONE Coming AGAIN SOON.

HE…chose you before the worlds were formed.

HE…chose the Nails because He loves you.

HE…knew your name on the Cross

HE…will not leave you behind.

HE…is coming back for you…because you claim HIM as your…SAVIOR and LORD

WHY…. Because… HE IS ALIVE!

Your Bible… Easy to Understand

 

The Bible distilled down to 4 easy to understand points.

Four simple points. These four points contain depths of knowledge beyond our comprehension. For who among those HE has created can say they understand HIM or can even begin to know HIM.

Point One: God had a vision to create an ultimate Holy and Eternal World where God and man would co-exist. This vision became reality when God said, “Let there be Light….” And so there was a place where God and man could walk together in a garden, in the cool of the day.

Point Two: Sin entered into this pristine world, twisting the relationship between God and man. This disease born on the dark wings of a fallen angel named Lucifer spread to every man and woman made in the image of God for all time. Every person every born of the flesh has this SIN GENE, that condemns them to a 2nd Eternal Death.

Point Three: Two worlds now existed side by side. Two dimensions occupying the same space but not the same time. God in one and man in the other. But God promised to send HIS SON to REDEEM MANKIND and the world he lived in and re-unite both planes of existence…into ONE.

And so JESUS, the God / Man was born into the world to die for the world and make it ONE again.

Point Four: In the beginning everything was made new. Then for a time everything new became old and life became a cycle of continuing birth and death. But just as God had created the beginning HE also created the NEW BEGINNING of the End.

God would bring forth new birth pangs that would ultimately give birth to a new blending of HEAVEN and EARTH, a NEW Place where God and BORN AGAIN Mankind again would walk together for ETERNITY.

The Bible is the Greatest Non-Fiction Story Ever Written. It is far more than history. IT IS HIS-STORY. And your Father…Almighty God wrote it especially for you and to you.

And I heard ELOHIM say to me in my heart…

Ernie ….ALWAYS Remind My Children That I LOVE THEM.
