SATAN, PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, god
OF THIS WORLD REVEALED RULES LOST AND DEMANDS DEATH (Eph.2:1-5)
SODOM, NINEVEH, ROME AND NOAH'S TIMES COMBINED
WRATH COMES IN MANY COLORS
God pours out His wrath, He does not always do so directly. One of His most common ways is to simply back away from the
nation or person and lower the hedge of protection around them. This is clearly spelled out in Romans 1:18-32. That passage
says that when people rebel against God to the point that they begin to worship the creation (some nations do this by LAWS) rather than the Creator, God "gives them over" to the evil in their hearts. In
other words, He just steps back and lets evil multiply. The passage further states that if they still refuse to repent,
He steps back again and "gives them over to degrading passions." And if they persist in their rebellion and sin,
He finally "gives them over to a depraved mind" at which point the society destroys itself. Such destruction could
be viewed as the wrath of Man, but it is really the wrath of God working through Man.
HIS CHURCH IS PRESERVEDWe look
for the coming of our Lord.
In Him we occupy till He comes.
In Him we administer in our house.
the sun also rises and the day is done.
In Him there is prosperity and hope.
WITHOUT HIM, POWERLESS ARE THE
AND THE MONEY HAS NO MEANING!
We will serve the Lord! God willing we be spared the bitter end of
it all! And if, at a predetermined divide God knows, and ordains, one road is imposed upon us, then that which is spiritually
determined, and leads to a sure Home that is not built by human hands, but by our Lord God and Savior, we will choose;
"Be wise now, therefore. O you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and
rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all they who put their trust in him." Psalm 2:10-12.
Just and God-fearing rulers bring the clear sunshine of peace and prosperity to a nation. 2 Samuel
" 3 The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: 'When one rules over men in righteousness,
when he rules in the fear of God, 4 he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness
after rain that brings the grass from the earth."
PERILOUS TIMES AND WICKED PEOPLE
2 Timothy 3:
1 "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2
For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful,
unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5
having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this
sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various
lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8
Now as Janis and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning
the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as
theirs also was.
HOW CAN WE WHO LOVE GOD ESCAPE SUCH CALAMITY?
"Your word is a lamp to my feet And
a light to my path." Ps 119:105
"Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You. "Ps 119:11
"5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust
is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all."
15 "How blessed are the people who are so situated; How blessed are the people whose God is the
12 "Blessed is the nation
whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance. 13 From heaven the Lord looks down
all mankind; 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth— 15 he who forms the hearts of
who considers everything they do. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by
his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. 20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our
help and our shield. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing
love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you. "
EXAMINE OURSELVES! DO NOT DRIFT OFF INTO WORLDLY PURSUITS.
2 Timothy 4:
Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and
encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3For the time will come when men
will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers
to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth
and turn aside to myths. 5But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the
work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
6For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure.
7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8Now
there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and
not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."
1 John 2:
Antichrists/ THE LAST IS YET TO COME
18 "Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist
is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour."
The key purpose
of 1 John is to set boundaries on the content of faith and to give believers assurance
of their salvation.
1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us
from all unrighteousness."
1 John 3:6, "No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him
or known him."
1 John 4:4, "You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is
greater than the one who is in the world."
1 John 5:13, "I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so
that you may know that you have eternal life."
WORD IS TRUTH
It is extremely important that we check everything we
see, hear, and read that claims to be “Christian” with the Scriptures. This cannot be too strongly emphasized
because one of Satan’s greatest weapons is deceit. It is very easy to be taken
in by a new and exciting doctrine that appears to be based on Scripture but which, if examined closely, is in fact a departure
from the Word of God. If what appears to be happening does not line up explicitly with Scripture, then this is false and
not of the Spirit, and we should have nothing to do with it.
2 John 6: "And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands.
As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love."
2 John 8-9: "Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching
has both the Father and the Son."
BELOVEDS, ARE YOU, LIKE I, AMAZED AT THE RAPID ADVANCE OF EVIL IN THIS
WORLD? AND IN OUR NATION, AMERICA?
2 Peter 1:3-4, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge
of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so
that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
2 Peter 3:9: “The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient
with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:18: But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”
