BE WISE AS A CHILD!

Heaven is full of Children, who went home to be with the LORD too early.

WHO DOESN’T BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS GOD?

Many people peer back through the darkened pages of history and see a rather obscure picture of Jesus. They have heard of His 2,000 year old claim that He was God, but they don’t quite believe it.

They find it hard to accept the idea that a small – town Jewish carpenter could have been the creator of the world. They prefer to believe other, less sensational theories about Him. Here are some of those beliefs.

Jesus is a man who achieved great things….this view is held by the Mormon Church. They teach that Jesus was a preexistent spirit—but they believe that about everyone.

Jesus is a created being who was given the status of second-in-command….this view is held by Jehovah’s Witnesses. They teach that Jesus is a created individual who is the second greatest personage of the universe. He is a god, but not the Almighty God.

Jesus is a man no better than we are….this view is held by the Unification Church . They teach that Jesus’ value is no greater than that of any other man.

Jesus’ existence began at His conception….this view is held by the Way International. They teach that God created Jesus’ soul life in Mary at His birth.

Jesus is a prophet and messenger of God….this view is held by Islam. They teach that Jesus was only a messenger of Allah.

Jesus is less than most people think He is….this view is held by the Atheist. Most Atheists’ place Buddha or Socrates on a higher plane than Jesus.

Jesus is a great moral teacher….this view is held by the Unitarian Church. They teach that Christ was sent to earth as a great moral teacher rather than as a mediator.

Jesus is a mystic medium….this view is held by New Agers. They teach Jesus is a Channeler. One of many ancients who give New Age adherents a glimpse at the past.

Jesus is a projection of our needs….this is the view of today’s psychologist’s and psychiatrist’s. Jesus is a culture hero who regardless of His historical existence, embodies the myth of the divine man.

One thing is for sure. Somebody is wrong! These people can’t all be right about Jesus. He cannot be exactly who all these people say He is. Many who think they know, don’t know. If He is only a prophet or a medium, then those who insist He is God are wrong.

If on the other hand He is God, then those who insist that He is only an exceptional man are wrong. Some might wish to have it both ways. In science and investigative journalism, we pursue truth passionately. Why should it be any different in this important realm?

The ERROR of the Jewish Road to Heaven.

jewish gospels 1

Jewish People believe in Works Righteousness. But the Old TestamentTeaches, being a good person isn’t good enough to get you into heaven.

According to the Old Testament Scriptures…. Good Works will not be enough to get anyone into Heaven. The rabbis will say good works… IS enough, but the rabbis speak for man, not for God.

Just like the New Testament has the Romans Road to Salvation through Jesus the Messiah of Israel. There is a Jewish Road to Heaven in the Old Testament, but you cannot get there through Works Righteousness.

Instead it is a road that convicts you of your Sin before God. It then offers hope in a New Covenant and New Circumcised Heart that you can find within the Jewish Gospels; contained in Isaiah, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

( THERE IS NO WORKS RIGHTEOUSNESS )

YOU ARE A SINNER:

Gen 8:21   The intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth.

YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF:

Isa 64:6       All our righteous deeds are like filthy garments.

YOU WILL BE JUDGED AFTER DEATH:                

Dan 12:2     Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake to everlasting life, but  the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt.

THERE IS A HELL:

Isa 66:23-34   All mankind will come to bow down before me, says the Lord. Then they shall go forth and look on the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die and their fire shall not be quenched and they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind.

BUT THERE IS HOPE !

GOD HAS PERSONALLY BLINDED THE JEW:

Isaiah 6:9  Keep on listening, but do not perceive. Keep on looking but do not understand Render the hearts of this people insensitive, their ears dull and their eyes dim, lest they see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and return and be healed.

GOD IS WAITING FOR YOU TO FIND HIM:      

Pvb 8:17   I love those who love me; and those who diligently seek me will find me.

NEW COVENANT:        

Jer 31:31   Behold, days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made their fathers…I will put my law within them, and on their heart I will write it ,and I will be their GOD and they will be my people.

WHO IS A TRUE JEW:

Deu 30:6  The name JEW comes from Judah (To Praise God). In Deut.30: 6, God explains a true person of God, is one whose Heart has been changed. What is important to God is circumcision of the Heart not of the flesh…this speaks of being Born Again.

GOD SAID HE HAS A SON:

Pvbs 30: 4 What is His Name, or His son’s name? Surely you know!

GOD SENT A SAVIOR, HIS SON:  

Isa 7:14     Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a Virgin be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel. God with Us…Messiah

MESSIAH SUFFERING SERVANT:

OPEN the Word of God, read…Psalm 22, Is 53, Zech 12:10, Dan 9:26.

DEATH OF THE MESSIAH:  

Daniel 9:26…he dies before the temple is Destroyed in 70 AD.

Are You Ready To Witness ?

are you ready

BEFORE you can effectively witness you need a working knowledge of Jesus. And you need to know the details of HIS life from a Jewish perspective. This dimension of our Lord as a Jew seems to have been forgotten by the Christian community. To know Him as the Christ of the Cross-, is the Christian perspective.

But the picture of Yeshua / Jesus is not complete until you understand the prophecies of His coming in the Old Testament. He came first as the Jewish Messiah and His Cross was planted deep into the Judean soil. So here is some information that will help you to know Him better not just as Jesus the Christ but as Yeshua the Messiah of Israel.

What Old Testament bible study is mentioned 12 times in one book of the bible, is given by seven different people and is almost never given today?

The study that proves JESUS/YESHUA IS the MESSIAH of ISRAEL!

This study is presented by 7 people: Peter, Stephen, Philip, Paul, Apollos, Aquila and Priscilla:

12 separate sermons by 7 people:

Acts 2:22-38     Peters 1st sermon

Acts 3:18-26     Peters 2nd sermon

Acts 7             Stephen before the Sanhedrin

Acts 8:26-39     Philip and the Ethiopian Treasurer

Acts 9:20-22     Saul Preaches at Damascus

Acts 10:42-43   Peters sermon to the Gentiles

Acts 13:16-41   Pauls sermon at Antioch

Acts 17:2-3       Paul at Thessalonica

Acts 18:5         Paul at Corinth

Acts 18:24-28   Apollos, Aquila, and Priscilla at Ephesus and Corinth

Acts 26:23       Paul preaches to Agrippa

Acts 28:23       Paul at Rome

AND JESUS, THE EIGHTH PERSON, With 2 more FOR A TOTAL OF 14

Luke 24:13     Emmaus Road: “And beginning with Moses and with all the Prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself In all the Scriptures.”

Luke 24:44     Upper Room: “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me In the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be Fulfilled. Then He opened their minds to understand the Scripture.

Here are some of the fulfilled Prophecies in the Old Testament that God used to paint a portrait of His SON and that Jesus said were written about HIM. Follow the clues that revolve around questions using the word WHO.

Gen: 3:15     Who is the seed (offspring) of the woman who crushes the head of Satan?

Gen: 12:2     Who is the seed of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob that will bless Thru 22:18 all nations?

Deut: 18:15   Who is the Prophet like Moses of whom God says, “You must Listen to him.”

Psalm 22       Who is the one crucified?

Isa 9:6-7     Who is the child that is God and will have an everlasting kingdom?

Isaiah 53     Who was crushed and pierced for our transgressions so th we would be healed by His wounds; upon whom did the Lord lay the iniquity of all mankind?

Jere 23:5,6   Who is the righteous Branch, the wise king, who will be called  “The Lord Our righteousness?”

Dan 9:24-27   Who is the “Anointed One” to be “Cut Off” (karat=executed), prior to 70 A.D.

Micah 5:2     Who is the one who is eternal, who will be ruler over Israel, who is born in Bethlehem (Ephratah)? “From you (Ephratah), One Will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long Ago, from the days of eternity.

Zech 12:10   Who is Jehovah, “The one they have pierced”, for whom Jerusalem And all the nation of Israel will weep and mourn?

Indeed WHO is God speaking about?

DID YOU KNOW THE OLD TESTSAMENT MAKES IT CLEAR THAT GOD HAS A SON?

Isaiah 7:14   Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a Son, and she will call His name Immanuel.

Isaiah 9:6     For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the Government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be call HIM Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Ps 2:6-12     He said to Me, Thou art My Son, Today I have begotten Thee. Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Thine inheritance and the very ends of the earth as Thy possession…………Do homage to  the Son, lest He become angry, and you perish in the way………How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

Prov.30:4     Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, Surely, you know?

Zechariah Prophesied in 9:9 about the Messiahs Entrance into Jerusalem on the Foal of a Donkey. Then Luke documents the same in Ch. 19: 39-40 “And some of the Pharisees in the multitude said to Jesus, Teacher rebuke your disciples! And Jesus answered …I tell you, if these become silent the stones will cry out!”

Did you catch that thought?…even the Stones know the NAME of JESUS. They have Faith in Jesus, They Pray to Jesus, They Know HE IS GOD.

Then how much more should those of us who are the Living Stones of His Church… KNOW HIM…and OBEY HIM.

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 Hands.

God 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.

From My Mind to Yours

walking in the light

Are You a Servant of the Lord?
Are You Walking in HIS LIGHT?

Each Believer is a clay pot filled with Holy Spirit Fire. May your clay pot have many cracks so that your light will shine like the Pillar of Fire described in the Book of Exodus; the Pillar that lead the Children of Israel in the desert throughout their generation.

Share your God Story with someone you know and then tell The Greatest Story Ever Told…HIS Story…the Story of Jesus the Christ… and then take them to HIS CROSS.

Tell them Jesus is waiting there …waiting to be wanted by them…

Waiting patiently with His arms open wide.

The Dawn of Eternity has already begun. Your journey in time is almost over. You stand on the edge of FOREVER.
Your walk of Faith has brought you Back to Your Future.

You can see HIS light, as it grows brighter. You can feel the wind of the Holy Spirit all around you, the very breath of God.

But most of all you can hear clearly now the Whisper of HIS Voice as HE Calls to your Heart.

Well Done MY GOOD and FAITHFULL SERVANT come and walk with ME to your new home…

Bible, Easy to understand ?

Great Adventure

Ask most people about the Word of God and the first thing you will hear is that it is too hard to understand. There are too many words, too many themes, and too many different concepts to wrap our minds around. There are too many examples of imperfect people used to try and teach us about perfection. It just takes too much time to devote to reading it…and then who is going to interpret it for us? And so they cannot get beyond the first 3 pages of any of the Bibles books, let alone take on the daunting task of reading the book in its entirety.

Many of these people have a passion for reading. In fact they read voraciously. They can read one novel after another with no problem. This happens because the novels appeal to their passions, their raw emotions as humans filled with lust, greed, arrogance, pride and a multitude of sins that filled the dregs of the cup that Christ drank and died for on the Cross.

But to read the only book that was written personally to each of them by the God of the Universe…well that’s just too much effort; even though this book tells them who God is, who they are and the choice they have to make that will determine their future.

It’s obvious to me that everyone has an opinion on the Book that God wrote and they are very vocal if asked. Yet the opinions of these people were formed by someone else’s opinion, whose opinion was formed by someone else’s opinion, who never once opened the Book to see what was on its pages. In the end most everyone is risking their eternal destiny on the opinions of others rather than taking the time to explore God’s Word for himself or herself. These people could care less about absolute truth or the consequences of ignoring it.

God has made His Word SIMPLE and EASY to understand not complicated and unknowable. He uses an economy of words that explain concepts of great depth so all people can understand what HE means. Rest assured that God always means what He says and says what He means.

With the latter said I am giving you an overview of the Old & New Testaments, 4 Points that will take you through the entire Bible message in about 2 minutes. This will bring the point home that God is God and you are His Child and everything He has written to YOU in His Book is simple enough for His Children to understand. And that YOU….WE …are all without excuse!

The following are 4 Simple Points that contain depths of knowledge beyond our comprehension. For who among those He has created can say they understand Him or even begin to know HIM.

1) 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.

2) 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 (SATAN) spread to every man and woman made in the image of God for all time.

3) 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 JESUS His Son to redeem mankind and the world he lived in and re-unite both planes of existence…into ONE. And so the God / Man, the Jewish Messiah of Israel, the Christ of His Church was born into the world to die for the world opening a narrow road to heaven where the SAVED could find their way home.

4) 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, at the End of Time, new birth pangs that would ultimately give birth to the blending of a New Earth and New Heaven, a place without SIN, where God and Man again would walk together forever.

The Bible is the Greatest Non-Fiction Story Ever Written and your Father…Almighty God wrote it especially for you and to you. And I heard God the Father say to me in my heart.

Ernie ….Remind MY Children that I LOVE THEM.

Elect Christian or Messianic Jew…Our Purpose is the SAME in CHRIST !

Pillar Fire 2

As an Elect CHRISTIAN, Jesus has given you the same Command that He gave the Nation of Israel in its beginning. “To Be a Witness”. The following story will help you better understand Your Purpose in Christ which is the same for me as a Chosen Messianic Jew.

“Yes, I got the message…I’m heading out right away! WAIT don’t hang up! Did you look in the mirror? Yes, the mark, I have it too. Don’t worry I’ll be there in time for the INGATHERING. For years now the Jewish Believers have had their own Messianic Ingathering’s. But now the call has come from the HOLY SPIRIT to meet for the FINAL ingathering. For the end of the age of mankind has begun and TIME will Soon Be NO MORE.

Fire has swept away the genealogy of every living Jewish person since the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in 70 AD. NO LONGER did we know which tribe our families came from, yet the call was irresistible and so we each came alone to the meeting place.

Like the animals coming together to the Ark that Noah built, we too came forth from out of the Nations of the Earth. Each of us a member of the chosen witnesses from eternity past, each of us a member of one of the 12 tribes of Israel. Together we came from every tribe and every tongue and every nation to meet the Lord in the Desert.

We came to meet with the LION of the Tribe of Judah, the KING of kings, the LORD of lords to be taught what we must now do prior to HIS Second Coming.

The Signs are all around us, the time is short, His True laborers, as throughout the centuries, will be few. Because of the ongoing events on the Earth and the Signs in the Heavens the fields are again ripe unto Harvest. Jesus has called us to Himself to meet in a desert place where He will teach us as He did the 12 so long ago, to be effective evangelists during the time of Jacob’s trouble.

A time of final salvation for those who have ears to hear and eyes that see. Since Pentecost the call to Christians has always been to evangelize effectively.

That meant to be able to plant seeds into hearts that will TAKE ROOT. Not to just throw seeds out onto rocky places, or the side of the road or among the thorns. JESUS wants quality seeds placed into the hearts of people.

This war was given by God in the end times to the WESTERN world to fight, yet the church has been ineffective as the Apostate Church of the WEST grows larger each day.

Just a short distance further over the next rise I can see a halo of light in the distance. I expected millions of people to be there because the light grew in intensity as I approached. Just then my head breached the crest of the hill and I was stunned by what I saw.

The children of Israel were lead by the Lord at night by a pillar of fire; so too was a pillar of fire standing before me. This was Holy Fire that bathed 144,000 Jewish men in white light.

This light permeated my soul and then I knew what tribe I belonged to. And I knew where to walk so that I could take my place prepared for me in eternity past, to STAND in the presence of the LIVING LORD.

There were peels of thunder and lightning illuminating the valley of decision where we were all gathered waiting for instructions. Then the words came forth from The LORD’S Mouth.

They were whispered, yet audible to both the storm and to us…BE STILL and know that I AM God, now hear the WORD of the LORD from my Servant.

It grew quiet instantly. Then a ray of light beamed down from Heaven next to Jesus and when the piercing white light dissipated, standing next to Jesus was a small man.

The scene reminded me of what happened on the Mount of Transfiguration. Out of that same white light stood Jesus and Moses and Elijah. Moses representing the Law and Elijah representing the Prophets and Jesus representing the WORD of Truth, the FOUNDATION upon which both the Law and the Prophets stood.

Yet here there was only one man not two standing next to Jesus. It was the Apostle Paul who stood before us. Paul; the Apostle that Christ built His ONE TRUE CHURCH through. The Church of Christ built with living stones made up of Born Again Jews and Born Again Christians.

Then it was Paul who began to address us on the topic of evangelism. His words cut to our hearts and souls. This was no game; this was the war of the ages for the hearts and minds of people. People like the ones that Christ looked down from the Cross-at and said, ”Father forgive them for they know NOT what they do”.

Those words apply to every human being that has not come to the realization that they are Sinners in desperate need of a SAVIOR. Paul began recounting his teachings on evangelism by reviewing his journey through the Book of Acts. His was a journey of preaching that continually focused on the un-deniable Historic FACT of the Cross of Christ, and His RESURRECTION.

Paul spoke to us about the perversion of the Gospel in the Book of Galatians. He explained to people back then about the soon coming of another gospel, a false gospel that would lure people down the wide road to a false Christ.

He spoke of Timothy a young pastor who needed to stay true to what he was taught from the beginning and not water down the Gospel based on the changing whims of generations. Timothy must remain true to the unchanging Doctrines given by Christ at the birth of His Church.

The fact that the church did not stay true to the teaching of Christ has caused the apostasy of the Western Church making it ineffective.

Paul then ended his course on evangelism by taking us through the Book of Ephesians discussing the ARMOR of GOD. He said that we all must take up the full Armor of God because this war is not physical but spiritual.

To wear this armor means NO FEAR of men or demons. It was Paul who stood alone in his time for Christ. And now he stands before us with an indictment of the Church through the ages that is now culminating with the Church of the WEST in our days… at the end of the end times.

I still hear the echo of Paul’s voice as he lamented:

“Oh my churches, dying churches, are you not the chosen bride? Oh my churches, dying churches. How could you abandon Christ?”

Then Christ stood and said no longer would the Gospel be left in the hands of believers. Too many believers never grew beyond the milk of MY word. Too many remained within the comforts of fellowship with other Christians rather than going into the world around them, Boldly confronting the darkness.

Too many of them spent time learning how to live their Christian life and walk quietly before friends and family, rather than learning how to effectively weald the SWORD of the SPIRIT… in the unseen war all around them.

And so as Jesus continued to speak to us HE said the Believers were no longer on the earth. They have been SNATCHED / Raptured up into heaven where they will wait along with the great cloud of witnesses; for the final appointed time of the end of the age of mankind. They have done what they could but it was not good enough!

And Jesus looking out amongst the 144,000 Jews said… I turn back to you once again for this final hour of Salvation. Not as a Nation but as MY Chosen Jewish SPIRITUAL WARRIORS of Israel.

I gave the task of world reconciliation to your father Abraham through Isaac and to a people numbered greater than the sands of the seashore but they failed. Then I came to my own and they knew me not. And then my Church was born and they failed as well. This task of evangelism I now give to you to complete; so that the circle of life can be closed and finally fulfilled.

And a new world without end can be born again.

I am giving all of you the task assigned to the 12 Apostles over 2,000 years ago. But I have multiplied your number to 144,000. All of you will be empowered for witness and sealed by the Holy Spirit for protection. You will walk in the darkness of this world and touch the hearts of multitudes on behalf of ME.

Hearts will be made NEW and You will not fail.

So go forth into the world in the might and power of the HOLY SPIRIT. Have no fear of men or demons. Take the Sword of the Spirit and cut into the hearts of mankind everywhere with the true Gospel and I will give the increase…Until the Nets are Full and the last one who was called to believe from eternity past… finally Will Believe.

The roar of the chant from the 144,000 Jews echoed like peals of thunder throughout the Universe…Even So Come Lord Jesus…Even So Come Lord Jesus… Even So Come Lord Jesus they chanted in unison. Then the Lord of Heaven and Earth, the King of Angels and the King of Men raised His right hand before His FATHER in Heaven and then before us. There was silence. Then just as He did from His Cross …Jesus roared forth the words that would put the Universe on notice for the last time…
IT IS FINISHED!

Is God Speaking ?

ULTIMATE QUESTION # 2
“Quiet…be Still…and KNOW that I am God”.

.Outer Space

In the Old Testament book of 1 Kings: Ch.18, beginning in verse 20 thru Ch.19:13, there is a story of Elijah the Prophet and how he killed 450 priests of Baal but then feared for his life and hid in a cave. The Lord God spoke to Elijah asking him why he was hiding in the cave. Then God told him to go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord and behold the Lord passed by.

“And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire and after the fire a sound of a gentle wind”…and Elijah went out and stood at the caves entrance and Gods voice spoke to him.

Today, God does not speak in a voice to us. No, you will not hear an audible voice. But if you quiet your heart before him, He will speak to your heart through HIS written word.

The question for all of you who have had courses in World Religions is simply which voice (Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Mormonism, etc.) is the TRUE voice of God. There can only be one Truth, everything else must be a lie.

All those religions I mentioned claim to come from THE God. Most people today believe that all religions ultimately provide the same path to God. Yet, when you study for yourself, the God of these religions, you will find their Gods are all very different from each other. Which God do you believe? Which religion is true?

I have been talking to people since May of 1985 about THE God I serve. The conversations always come down to the question of “What Is Truth?” All of us have beliefs in something, but are those beliefs based on personal investigation or a shallow, belief that parrots the opinions of other people. People repeating what they have heard, people who have never taken the time to investigate any of the religions let alone life’s most important question…Where do I go when I die and what’s waiting for me upon my arrival?

Each of you know that life is short. The Bible calls your life a “puff of smoke”…your here, then gone. At the very best you will be remembered by 2 generations. Do yourself a favor. Take a deep breath and ask the REAL God to make HIMSELF known to you…listen, quietly, as HE Whispers to your Heart. He wants you to know who He really is…He waits patiently for you to find Him…and when you do He will let you know HIM personally.

Road to Emmaus, Christ Before the Manger

Dad's Biblehttp://www.gty.org/video/television/T8290-431/christ-the-expositor

It has taken Pastor / Teacher John MacArthur over 30 years to teach through the New Testament. He finished just recently. How about your Pastor? Now in the time the Lord has left Pastor MacArthur he has turned to the Old Testament to teach the foundation upon which Jesus Stands.

Teachers of Scripture, the Pastors of our churches, the Shepherds of HIS FLOCK of which YOU are His Sheep—–His TRUE Shepherds MUST focus on opening the minds of their congregations to understand SCRIPTURE; NOT how to live well in a world that is passing away before our eyes. That means they need to Preach and Teach through the Scriptures book by book. That is called EXPOSITIONAL Teaching.

Jesus said that HE IS the SUBJECT of the ENTIRE BIBLE. That includes the OLD TESTAMENT which is the Bible that Jesus taught from. The first sermon that Jesus gave when HE came out of the Tomb, was on the Road to Emmaus. He preached about HIMSELF from the Books of Genesis through Malachi to two disciples.

Open your Bible and read Luke 13 – 49. “26 -27 Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His Glory. And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets JESUS explained to them the things concerning Himself in ALL the SCRIPTURES”. The Messiah JESUS came to die for the sins of ALL Mankind so those who turned to His Cross in REPENTANCE would have Eternal life in Heaven. Those who do not repent have Only ETERNAL HELL to look forward too.

You need to understand the Pre-incarnate Christ, Jesus Before the Manger. That is the ONLY WAY you will understand the Majesty, and the Glory of JESUS the SON of GOD, the MESSIAH of ISRAEL and the CHRIST of HIS CHURCH….The Greatest Story EVER TOLD… AND the Foundation upon which HE STANDS.

“Jesus came IN Fulfillment of the Old Testament so HE Could FULFILL the Old Testament.
1. The Lord Jesus Christ declared HE Is in the Old Testament and Revealed it in His Teachings.
2. The Apostles and the Disciples fully believed in HIM, because they understood the Old Testament.
3. The Apostles and Prophets preached The Gospel of Jesus Christ based on the Old Testament.
4. The writers of the New Testament based their teachings in the Old Testament.
5. His story was in the New Testament, but His Bible was the Old Testament” Pastor MacArthur.

IT’S ALL THEIR IN THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BLOW THE DUST OF THE BOOK AND BEGIN TO SERIOUSLY READ IT IN 2015.

Then maybe, just maybe you will not be fooled into believing the Coming Lies of the FALSE MESSIAH, Satan’s Puppet; the One World Leader called the Anti-Christ.
