THE VERY FIRST FATHERS DAY

The theme of the Book of Revelation is one of rewards for those that believe in Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, and the Son of God. That reward is to go home to Heaven

Have you ever given any thought about the sacrificial love that GOD the Father showed each of us by sending His Only SON JESUS to die on that Cross in place of me and you, the ones who caused HIS PAIN.

In many of my stories I imagine God speaking directly to me.

“My child God said to me. I wanted to tell you personally what the Crucifixion of My Son meant to me.

You have children and grandchildren and I know you love them. I know that you would do all you could to protect them from harm and that you would gladly take upon yourself their death. I know this because you were created in my image with the ability to Love.

I know that if men took your child and beat him with whips that ripped both flesh and bone from his back…that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to carry a beam of heavy wood down the street as people swore at him, mocking him, and spitting on him… that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to lie down on that cross and then drove nails through his feet and hands to hold him there…that you could not be restrained.

Could you Ernie?  The Lord asked softly…no Lord I said quietly.

I stood and watched as they did all those things to my Son. I stood there not for His sake but for yours, because He took that punishment not for His sake but for yours.I honored you through His Pain. But Ernie, when Jesus…MY SON cried out …MY GOD…MY GOD…WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

That was more than I could bear, so I turned away and cried uncontrollably. My Son had wept over Jerusalem; and now I wept over my Son. Yes, I could not look upon the Worlds Sins that MY Son was bearing, but even more than that, if I had looked at HIM at the moment HE said those words…I knew in my heart

 That I could not be restrained!

Ernie…I wanted you and those that say they love my Son, to know that even for the Joy set before both HIM and I…the Cross was the most difficult thing either of us have gone through.”

ARE YOU LIKE THEM ?

THEY Can’t Answer The Questions. Are you like Them ?

WHO SAID 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 called
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 ?

GOD SAID, “ HE HAS A SON !”

WITH A HEAVY HEART

With a heavy heart…

As an only child and at the age of 72, I am the repository of all the memories of my mother and father.

When I die and go to be with the Lord, there will be no one left to remember my parents. If they knew Christ as their Savior and Lord (which they do not), then there would be a reunion in heaven between us. But I do not have that to look forward to and neither do they. When I go to be with the Lord He promises to wipe away every tear from my eyes regarding this journey of life; here on this veil of tears we call earth.

He will somehow heal my broken heart and give me peace and I believe forgetfulness of all those whom I loved and cherished while here, but will never see again.

So in a true sense I will have forgotten my parents, never to be remembered again. But my parents will be in another place, not together, but alone with all their memories of the life they lived.

Memories that will be remembered by each of them and reviewed forever.

Who do you know and love more than your own life that does not know Jesus Christ as Savior? Look around you at. …Your wife, your husband, your brother, your sister, your child (son or daughter), your grandchildren, your relatives, your best friends…the list can go on and on for most of us. By keeping your mouth closed about your faith do you understand that you are helping them condemn themselves?

That’s not what God wants and that should not be what you want.

There are many creative ways to share the Word of God. Don’t ever give up, keep on trying.  Someday it will be too late and those whom God has put in your path will be forgotten to you…because you won’t be here anymore.

They will miss the reunion. They will miss a new universe that God has created to give us dominion over with purpose and joy. They will miss the forever joy of a journey without end.

When it is all over, there is nothing more important for you to do than to share your faith and speak to them about their need for a Savior. Should they die before you; you do not want to carry the emotional anguish because you kept your mouth shut.  Jesus  Said…

“I AM the WAY the TRUTH and The LIFE”…. there is NO OTHER WAY to Heaven but through ME.

Your blessing will be to forget them…. they have no blessing… they will become the FORGOTTEN.

The Greatest Living JEW …

I AM SO VERY TIRED OF HEARING jewish men who wear a yamulka on their head and a tallit on their shoulders curse the Name of Yeshua/JESUS. Saying that Christians are Ignorant of the Old Testament when they think that Jesus is the SON of GOD in the New Testament.

Having argumentative discussions with people never end up with Changing their Hearts. SO the FOLLOWING is for that jewish person in your life that SPITS on the NAME OF YOUR LORD YESHUA / JESUS the CHRIST.

LET’S ALLOW THE GOD OF ISRAEL TO SPEAK FOR HIMSELF !
The Messiah of Israel’s IDENTITY can be found within the Old Testament Messianic Prophecies. The Messiah Yeshua / Jesus walked out of the pages of the Old Testament to be REVEALED in the New Testament. The evidence is undeniable to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Isaiah 6:9
9 He said, “Go and tell these people (Nation of Israel):
‘Listen continually, but don’t understand!
Look continually, but don’t perceive!’
10 Make the hearts of these people calloused;
make their ears deaf and their eyes blind!
Otherwise they might see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
their hearts might understand and they might repent and be healed

Zechariah 12:10
10″I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, SO THAT THEY WILL LOOK ON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.

Daniel 9: 26
…26″Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut (KARAT) off (KILLED) and have nothing. (this is before 70 AD when the temple was destroyed by the Romans).

THE OLD TESTAMENT MAKES IT CLEAR THAT GOD HAS A SON.
Isaiah 7:14 Behold, a Virgin will be with child and bear a Son, and she will call His Name Immanuel, which means “GOD WITH US”.

Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father,
Prince of Peace.

Psalm 2:6-12 He said to Me, Thou art My Son, Today I have Begotten Thee. …Do homage to The Son, lest He become angry, and you perish in the way. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him.

Proverbs: 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 (GOD), and what is His Son’s Name
(JESUS), SHURELY YOU KNOW !

In Genesis 5 there is a genealogy of Names. Within this list of 10 Hebrew names God has placed His plan of redemption for the human race. Each word has a special meaning in Hebrew. When you put them together you have the Christian Gospel hidden in 10 Jewish names…
ADAM…………….. MAN (IS)
SETH……………… APPOINTED
ENOSH………….. MORTAL
KENAN………….. SORROW (BUT)
MAHALALEL……THE BLESSED GOD
JARED……………. SHALL COME DOWN
ENOCH………….. TEACHING
METHUSALEH… HIS DEATH SHALL BRING
LAMECH………… THE DESPAIRING
NOAH…………….. COMFORT AND REST
“Man is appointed mortal sorrow, but the Blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the despairing comfort and rest.”

Now dear jewish person go open your Old Testament and begin ARGUING with YOUR GOD.

Blessings , from GRANDPA ERNIE. raised an Orthodox Jew by a family of Holocaust Survivors. A Born Again (38 yrs old), Completed Messianic Jew, who has a New Circumcised Heart that Pumps Royal Blood, because I am a Child of the KING of ETERNITY, because I have accepted the Sacrifice of JESUS / YESHUA, the SON of GOD on His Cross for MY SINS…..I will be in heaven.

WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU WILL BE WHEN YOU DIE ? DON’T TELL ME IT WILL BE IN HEAVEN, BECAUSE YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS. I CAN GIVE YOU 3O MORE SCRIPTURES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT THAT WILL TELL YOU YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS BEFORE OUR HOLY, HOLY, HOLY GOD IS NOTHING MORE THAN DIRTY RAGS.

The Next Frontier

What comes to your mind when you hear the words, the next frontier? Do you think of man and his accomplishments? Do you go back into history in your mind and remember the high points of the “Ascent of Man”; the marching forward through time of developing civilizations?

if you asked someone you know what the Next Frontier for mankind would be they probably would tell you “Outer Space”. Out there is the answer to all our questions. Out there is where we really must go to solve our problems. But to go we ultimately need to unite around a common cause.

You can see the future coming. No longer will we look at ourselves as individual nations, but instead a new Global nation called Earth that contains ethnic varieties of people. The heart cry of man will be that we are all part of the human family of mankind. Men agree that our DNA representing only one of many species living on our planet ties us all together.

Together we are now searching for a common bond that will unite us all. A common bond that will focus our attention, on the goals of peace that will bring prosperity to the entire world. What will it be? What does every person seek outside of his or her physical existence? We all are seeking some form of Spirituality.

History has not united us; goals and objectives will not unite us. What will unite us is a spiritual awakening. And so it will not be Outer Space that brings us together, but Inner Space…our search to solve the mysteries of our Souls. Why because we know each of us is lost. Deep within us we want to understand who we are…we want to be found. We want to be part of something bigger.

So seeking spiritual guidance from something or someone outside of us will in the future become the paradox of the known ages. As we search deep within our own inner space it will be something or someone from Outer Space that will unite the peoples of the earth.

Then as it was on the plains of Shinar so long ago a new Tower of Babel will be erected. No not an actual tower, but a spiritual tower that will bring all mankind together to worship a being not of this earth. A being that will claim to be God and mankind will follow him into Eternal Darkness.

Tetelestai….IT IS FINISHED !

 

The LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH; JESUS ROARED forth the word that would put the Universe on notice for the last time… TETELESTAI …IT IS FINISHED!

The eyes of the Lord go to and fro throughout the earth looking for any who would believe. His eyes of fire search each heart that proclaims faith and then calls them to war. His fire can consume or His fire can bring warmth and light to your path as you follow in HIS footsteps.

It is more important today than ever to know your enemy. Put your time and efforts into studying the false doctrines of the enemy closest to you so you can draw the right weapon from Gods arsenal to help bring dead hearts to life.

Don’t sit comfortably by the campfire being warmed by others like you. You who know JESUS, you who claim to know HIS voice, you who have eyes to see and ears to hear, you heard HIS CALL … COME…FOLLOW ME!

He did not call you to follow Him to heaven…that will come later. HE Calls you today to follow HIM to WAR… for the hearts and minds of those you love.

You are called to go forth into the darkness for you have seen a great light and you have been empowered to serve no matter who you are, no matter where you live…. no matter what the circumstances.

This battle is everywhere that you find people who know not the RISEN LORD. So go Boldly where you have never gone before.

Have you ever stopped to think how much God loves the Gentiles? God loves Gentiles so much that He Blinded His own Chosen people, whom He said are the apple of His eye, to the Truth about Jesus their Messiah.

God did this so Gentiles could receive the Gospel and become part of Gods eternal family.

Jesus is the Jews Messiah, but He is also the hope of the Gentiles.

In Isaiah’s vision…God said “Who will go for us? The Holy Angels were silent, but Isaiah said…”Lord Send Me”.

That is the same commitment before the Lord of Hosts you and I must have in these end times we live in. We as believers need to go forth and say… Lord Send ME! Just remember to reach into HIS fire and light your candle before you go…and then shine it into the darkness.

Know this, that there will be a 2nd CHANCE for those you love that will be LEFT BEHIND after the Rapture. In fact, the LARGEST REVIVAL ever seen on planet Earth; will come in the Tribulation through the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists.

Matthew 24:14 “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the End Will COME.”

Revelation 14: 1-3
The Lamb and the 144,000 on Mount Zion
Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps.
And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth.

PREDESTINED to Believe in JESUS

YOU were Called, Elected and PREDESTINED For SALVATION

I knew you even before you were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5 I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12 You were not a mistake, 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 You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14 I knit you together in your mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13 And brought you forth on the day you were born. Psalm 71:6

If it is true, and it is TRUE… that God predestined in eternity past the elect who would be saved, then why do we need to witness to anyone?

Because Jesus commanded us to do it. It is something we do not always understand but he is our sovereign Lord and Savior of our lives and if he asks us to do something through obedience and love we do it.

There is a mandate to share Christ and engage in evangelism, a duty for the Christian. But at the same time it is an unspeakable privilege.

God does not need your testimony to save anybody. God has the power to address every person in this world immediately and directly to tell them what they need to know.

He does not need us to fulfill His purposes but the incredible thing is that the great God of heaven and earth has chosen the means by which He will bring His people to salvation. As well as the people He will bring. He has chosen what the bible calls the foolishness of preaching, the sharing of the word as the instrument the Holy Spirit uses to bring people to saving faith.

The same thing has to do with why we pray. Because God has sovereignty and HE has chosen to work through our prayers to do HIS work.

Again, we have the privilege of being the participants in Gods work of salvation. He does not need us but has chosen to work through us.

Back to your Future

E N D TIMES … BACK to YOUR FUTURE
WHO ARE YOU…. REALLY ? ? ?

Did you know…
that GOD has revealed the Past, the Present and the Future of the human race in HIS Bible?

Did you know…
that if you seriously read His Words you will be shocked to see that you are there, written on every page, because your DNA is filled with Sin, and God looks upon you as part of Fallen Humanity? Part of the Many that the Lord will Destroy at His 2nd Coming?

Did you know…
that one of the Main Signposts in God’s Word of the coming end of this current world system is that “Morality will be turned upside down and that what is right will become wrong and what is wrong will become right?

Did you know…
Your future… will greet you with either SHOCK or AWE.

Did you know…
You need…insight into what really is going on in this world & what is coming soon.

Did you know…
You need… to begin a journey into the Word of God, so you will be prepared for YOUR Future.

Did you know…
You need… to find a Biblical World View of Events.

Did you know…
Your Personal journey begins with your understanding the very first sentence in the Book of Genesis and will be complete when you read the last sentence in the Book of Revelation.

Genesis 1:1 “In the BEGINNING, GOD Created the Heavens and the Earth”.

Revelation 22:21 “and He who testifies to these things says, YES, I AM coming quickly. AMEN…Come LORD JESUS.

Without the ONE TRUE TRIUNE GOD Living In YOUR HEART… you will be LOST,
Living in the DARKNESS ALONE and you will NEVER…. FOREVER be FOUND !

To My Mormon Friend

SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH
A MORMON FRIEND

Hi Mike,
I am writing this to explain to you the reasons why I cannot give credibility to the doctrines of the Mormon religion. I have enclosed a listing of differences from my study of the contrasts between Christianity and Mormonism back in 1982 when I began searching for the truth.

At the beginning of my search I chose to disregard what I had been taught as a Jew. I literally wiped the slate clean. I wanted no one’s opinion or comments, just to read and study anew the following religions (Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam and Mormonism) . To determine for myself based on science, history and archeology, just as Pontius Pilate said to Christ…” What Is Truth?”.

Mike, every conscientious religious person has a responsibility to be certain that what he or she claims to be from God, really is from Him.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 examine everything carefully: hold fast to that which is good.
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.

Mormonism either stands or falls based on the validity of Joseph Smiths vision. He is either a true prophet from God or a false prophet. Jesus called false prophets white washed sepulcurs filled with dead men’s bones. The Apostle Paul speaking to the Church at Ephesus in Acts 20:29-30 said…I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own self’s men will arise speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.

Mike, I do not recognize Joseph Smith as a prophet for the following reasons.
1. He did not heed the warning in Galatians 1: 6-9….I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you, and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed……
Moroni is an angel from heaven.

2. God in scripture, has warnings about changing His word. In Deuteronomy 4:2 Moses warns the children of Israel….you shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Joseph Smith added over 800 words to Genesis 50. He inserted the reference to Moshiach Ben Joseph who was to come in the latter days. And of course this reference applies to non-other than himself. There is only one consistent reference in the Bible to a Moshiach Ben David, who is none other than Jesus the Christ…not Joseph Smith.

Joseph Smith also altered the book of Revelation, ignoring the warning of Rev. 22: 18-19…..I testify to everyone who hears the prophesy of this book; if anyone adds to them, God shall add to him the plagues which are written in this book and if anyone takes away from the word of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

Mike I believe as Gods word says that His word never changes, nor does He. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Your Mormon prophets have changed the doctrines of your faith over 4000 times with new revelations since the 1820’s. The Jewish rabbis also found it necessary to compile the Talmud, a 30 volume commentary of rules to live by that have changed with each revered rabbi throughout the last 1800 years. That is where the similarity lies between Mormonism and Judaism, both religious systems have moved away from GODS TRUTH as revealed within the pages of His Inspired Word.

Mike, I like you and Denise a lot. I respect your integrity, honesty and commitment to your family. But our faiths are as far apart as eternity. When you go to your Mormon temple you have the statue of your angel Moroni at the top of the spire. When I go to Church we have the Cross at the top of the spire. You have Moroni, we have Jesus Christ, J’shua Hamachiach, The Messiah, THE SON OF GOD…who came to die on that cross to save people born with original sin. Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the FATHER but by ME!

Mike you are the spiritual head of your family, just as I am. Set what you have been taught all your life aside and begin a study of Mormonism vs. Christianity…search for the truth, try and answer the arguments used against your Mormon faith, just as I did with Judaism. Approach this task in prayer to the Lord Jesus Christ alone. He will show you the truth.

The issues of Mormon revelations can be reduced to one simple test. If Joseph Smiths revelations deny, contradict or oppose the original inspired word of God; then whatever their source, they cannot possibly have originated with God The Father. And if they did not originate with God, they have no divine authority and should not be heeded.

Belief in JESUS is the key to everything, but you and I do not worship the same JESUS.

 

 

To My Catholic Friend

SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH
MY CATHOLIC FRIEND.

Dear John,

Before we begin, I need to give you some similarities between our backgrounds. I was raised within an Orthodox Jewish family and I assume you were raised in a Traditional Roman Catholic family. Each of us have loved ones who modeled a deep faith in our respective religious systems. These were and are people we trust and respect. We owe our spiritual moorings to them.

Our spiritual leaders both in Synagogue and Church, my Rabbi and your Priest respectively; gave us small portions of Scripture in their sermons. These Scriptures were generally used to support official interpretations, opinions of learned men and the traditions of the Synagogue and Church throughout time.

When we were able, we both began studying our belief systems within the context of the faiths we were raised in. Judaism provided the Torah (5 books of Moses), the Writings and the Prophets, plus 30 volumes of Rabbinical commentary over 1000’s of years. Catholicism provided the Old Testament along with the Deuterocanonical books, plus 1000’s of years of Church traditions. Both faiths are steeped heavily in pomp, ceremony and liturgy.

And in both faith systems the Word of God is filtered to the masses, (that also means you and I), through man’s (Rabbis, Councils, Pope, Priests etc.) traditions. These traditions, representing fallible mankind, are held above the authority of God’s Word. This is backwards. We need to view fallible man’s traditions through the telescope of Gods unchanging, inerrant Word. God’s word is the only truth and authority in our lives. Yes, traditions that rest solidly on the rock foundation of the Bible are to be followed and accepted, but nothing else. God’s word is the filter or telescope to judge truth. Man looks through the wrong end of the telescope to justify himself before God and his fellow man.

John, the latter is why it would be easy for a Jew who has become a believer in Christ to cross over to a similar faith system of religion like Catholicism and worship the Messiah PLUS. That word plus is my biggest problem with the Roman Catholic faith.

God’s word stands on its own throughout time as The Source of Revealed Truth. Again, the traditions of fallible men are never to be received with the same or higher status as the Word of God. Dreams, visions, prophecies and learned men’s opinions must line up with the Word of God and never contradict it. Our faith and practice must be guided on it. Our ideas and thoughts must conform to it. Our explanations must always faithfully expound it. We must not read anything into it, but only faithfully draw out what is there.

John, this is the basis of our future written communications. As you can see I hold God’s Word as the only authority over us. Traditions whether from Judaism
(the Talmud-Rabbinic Commentary) or Catholicism (Papal decrees, Church Traditions) I find wrong and misleading. I feel you are following a religious system that openly contradicts the Bible in many areas.

I was given this gift of faith in Christ by God’s Grace through the Holy Spirit and even though I cling to Jesus’ feet at the foot of His Cross, I know He upholds me with His Mighty hand. It is Christ alone who holds my attention!

You once told me how excited you were to go to Rome and see the Cathedrals, to see the Pope, to walk were Paul and Peter the great fisherman walked. Well my brother I also have a dream…to go to Israel and Jerusalem…to see where Yeshua walked…. That is the difference between us…. You are Jesus PLUS and I am Jesus ALONE.

My Biblical World View is filtered through God’s word only as recorded in the Old Testament given to Israel and the New Testament Canon of the Church. Not the recorded traditions of men; whether rabbis, or popes and priests. Scripture Alone is GOD BREATHED and is the only truth!
