The Simple Truth

The Simple Truth:

The history of man is coming to a close. But the history of the Son of God is just beginning. All history is HIS-story. The question is whether you will be part of the continuing history of the Son of God. Or whether you will live alone in the darkness, with no mercy and no hope as one of the forgotten for all eternity.

As long as Jesus is one of many options, He is not an option.
As long as you can carry your burdens alone, You don’t need a burden bearer.
As long as your situation brings you no grief, You will receive no comfort.
As long as you can take Him or leave Him, You may as well leave Him, because He won’t be taken half heartedly.

But, when you mourn, when you get to the point of sorrow for your sins, when you admit that you have no other option but to cast all your cares on Him, and when there is truly no other name that you can call on, then cast all your cares on Him…for He is waiting in the midst of your storm.

He is preparing a place for you. He is the architect of your heavenly home…its builder and interior decorator too. He knows your hearts desires, your favorite colors, flowers, your favorite views.

He chose you before the foundations of the world were made.
He knows how to surprise you. He knows what you’ve always longed for.
And in His infinite care for you, He is preparing the perfect place for you.

FAITH IS TRUST

Faith is Trust based on evidence you choose to Believe.

In my search for God through the years I have found that Mysteries are
meant to be Revealed. That Religion’s are complicated lies meant to
Deceive. And The TRUTH…Gods TRUTH…is simple and clear.

Religion is the Voice of Man and cannot be defended from History,
Science or Archeology because Religion is weaved from layers of
complicated lies that will not stand. They are based in the shadows of
legends, myths and fairy tales.

I do not believe in the Gods that man has revealed through multiple
religions. Gods Truth is about a relationship that can be defended from
History, Science, and Archeology. But that’s not what excites me!

I believe in the God who revealed Himself to His Creation through His Word.
The Word’s given through Inspiration to His ancient Prophets for us.
The God that said man is but dust speaks to us today from ancient texts
that He has supernaturally preserved through time.

His Words of Truth have never changed because He has never changed.
He Is the Ancient of Days, the Eternal and True God. He revealed Himself
to man, man did not reveal God to himself !

God knows the beginning from the end and because He is THE ONLY GOD.

He Supernaturally proves who He is through Prophecy; just as you would
expect the real God to do…that’s what excites me !

GOD BECAME A MAN …so HE could rescue the Remnant, the few that Believe.

No one has been left out of His invitation to come to Him; not even you.

The Bible IS the autobiography of God.

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 pre-existent 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?

You will ONLY find the REAL JESUS Hidden in the Old Testament Messianic Prophecies and Revealed by HIS own words in the Jewish New Testament.

Both books make up ONE HOLY BIBLE. It is the Greatest Story Ever Told. It is not just History…but HIS-Story…the Story of the SON OF GOD. Written and given to the Prophets in the Old Testament and then lived out by JESUS in the New Testament.

Jesus, who came to Earth in Love to Die on the Cross for your sins. He was buried then Rose from the Dead 3 days later. Then continued doing miracles among 500 witnesses. Then Jesus Ascended back to Heaven; until the times of the Gentiles is over, when He will come back for His own in the Rapture. We will go up to Heaven to be with HIM.

Then Jesus will bring us with Him back to earth. But this time He comes back with NO LOVE, only Fire in His Eyes to destroy Evil Fallen Men and Women.

Your time to understand the True Identity of Jesus is running out. You live at the Dawn of Eternity. Soon, very soon now Time will no longer exist. But you will continue to Exist for Eternity. The only question is where you will live for Eternity.

The Death of Mankind

The race of ADAM no longer reflects the Image of God, his Creator. Mankind as a physical being is now doomed, soon to be terminated, yet God still offers him eternal life in place of eternal death through the gift of FAITH in His Son Jesus, which is the 6th sense that the race of Adam is missing.

Take a moment as we stand alongside Adam’s death bed in Hospice. Adam lives in time not eternity. Adam represents every fallen human being who ever lived; Adam is the race of mankind whose light is close to going out forever.

See all the tubes stuck in him, as he exists only on life support. His breathing is shallow. He is still and not aware of anything around him as he lives from breath to breath. Adam the ancient of days of mankind who lives in time will soon run out of time…because time will be no more.

God gave us all Ears to hear with and Eyes to see with and a Mind to think with. Yet for 6,000 years the human race, Adam’s race, our race has remained blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of God.

God wants to save you from yourself, to change you from a son of Adam to a child of God. He wants to change your Broken Heart of STONE to one of Flesh. HE wants to give you a blood transfusion, for in the Blood of Christ there is power to give you eternal life. Did you know that there is a river of blood that flows from the Earth to heaven?

This river of blood represents the deaths of the multitudes throughout the 6,000 years that died in the arms of Christ believing in His death on the Cross-for their sins. This river of blood when viewed from afar looks like a Scarlet Ribbon.
If you look closely you will see that it is anchored in the base of the Cross of Christ, planted deep into the Judean soil within the boundaries of the City of God called Jerusalem.

The other end of the Scarlet Ribbon is tied the Throne of God. It connects to both Jesus and the Great Cloud of Witness behind Gods throne. Those scarlet strands reach out across the entire world from heaven connecting to the Remnant, the Redeemed called from before the world was formed that live today on planet earth. These scarlet strands are attached to each of us personally who believe in Jesus and are living today in time.

Those strands represent an Eternal future filled with LIGHT and HOPE for all TRUE Believers. If you are not tied to His Cross then your Eternal future beyond the grave will be filled with DARKNESS and NO Hope.

Because you never took the time to investigate the TRUTH that will kill your pride and allow you to walk humbly before the One True God.

HOPE

Spiritual Gold Nugget 4  Who Do You Hope In ?

 HOPE: who or what do you place your hope in? There is only one place that hope belongs and that is in the TRUE God. Without the TRUE God you can define your life as hopeless. For only through Gods plan for your life will you find hope for your life here and hope beyond the grave.

H   God is Holy. He is the Creator and I am the creature. He is set apart. He is a self existent Being and He is to be feared. I cannot gain righteousness by comparing myself to others around me. God is HOLY and HIS Standard of perfection must be met to gain entrance into Heaven. I cannot be Holy. I therefore have a problem.

O   God is Omniscient and Omnipresent. He knows all and is everywhere at the same time. Everything I do and say is before His face. Everything I say, do and think is recorded in Heaven within the personal biography of my life. My life will be judged first by His Scriptures and secondly from my biography.

P   God is Personal. He wants you to know Him One to One. He wants you to know Him personally. He desires a relationship of friendship with me. Imagine, the God of the Universe wanting me to know HIM heart to heart.

E   God is Eternal. He has no beginning and no end. You have a beginning because He created you, but you too are Immortal with no end, you will live forever somewhere.

BE WISE AS A CHILD!

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

Hell is full of Adults, who never understood that JESUS wanted them to think like a CHILD.

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.
