Only a few days past Thanksgiving in 2021 and I see how pointless such a day has become to most. People claim they give thanks to God on this day for what they have but then turn around the very next day on black Friday to rush out and haggle people for so called low prices wanting more. Does anyone see the absurdity in such a thing? Most of us can’t see anything but what we want now and how we want it now. Then when people are presented with words such as these that I write they think I am the crazy one. When did being content with the basic things in life become absurd? How did we get to this point that Jesus warned us about?
4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you.
5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many.
6 “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
8 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
10 “At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.
11 “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
12 “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
13 “But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
14 “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Mankind can make as many so called laws as they want but I am pretty sure my Lord Jesus was not talking about the lawlessness of mankind due to mankind’s so called laws! In verse 12 above Jesus warns us about the lawlessness that abounds from denying Yahweh’s moral law set forth in the Ten Commandments. Thall shall not murder is the 6th of the Ten Commandments and these days many people just say that you shall not kill. To kill someone is not always murder, but when you murder someone you always kill them. The God I serve is just and if you are in your home protecting your God given family from some lunatic and you kill them then this is justified in Yahweh’s eyes and is not murder. To run out and start shooting people for no reason is murder. To create a poison and deceive the great majority of the world population into putting this poison in their bodies is murder. To take life from the womb in a woman is murder. I can go on forever about this but what good does it do if your love is personally cold?
Jesus personally knew the weakness of the men and women that he walked with. Jesus knew that the Father in time would complete in these people what the Father willed for them. How hard do you think it had to be to watch the man that you loved, walked with, watched do miracles, and loved you unconditionally, go to one of the most gruesome deaths ever known to man? Simon, son of John, who was later known as Peter would deny Jesus at the time that most people would think was the most crucial to stand for Jesus. The fact is though that Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected in about the year 33 A.D. and Peter didn’t die until about 64 A.D.! What am I getting at here you might wonder? Read on and I hope you will see!
28 “You are those who have stood by Me in My trials;
29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you
30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat;
32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”
33 But he said to Him, “Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!”
34 And He said, “I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.”
35 And He said to them, “When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” They said, “No, nothing.”
36 And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.
37 “For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, ‘And He was numbered with transgressors’; for that which refers to Me has its fulfillment.”
38 They said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.” And He said to them, “It is enough.”
Jesus knew that his faith in the Father, who is Yahweh the creator of all things, would bring that which the Father willed to pass in all those Jesus walked with. Above you see that Jesus even told Peter that he would deny him and Peter was full of pride not knowing what was to come. Notice how Jesus was getting these men ready for the battle ahead though! If you read the account in John you will see that even after the death, burial, and resurrection of my Lord Jesus that Jesus asks Peter something very special!
15 So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My lambs.”
16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.”
17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.
Our Times Are in His Hand
18 “Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go.”
19 Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me!”
20 Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His bosom at the supper and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?”
21 So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?”
22 Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!”
23 Therefore this saying went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?”
24 This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.
If you read the above text then you will see that Jesus not only asked Peter three times just like Peter denied Jesus three times but there was a point each time! The first two times the word used for love was Phileo in the Latin which referred to brotherly love! Also when Jesus asked the first time he was referencing to Peter that the people were still lambs! Meaning they had so much to learn in the spirit in the years to come! Then the second time he asked with the brotherly love endearment and Jesus was saying to Peter will you Shepherd my Sheep through this transition! The third time Jesus asked Peter it was asked with the endearment of the word Agape which was the Latin word used for God’s love towards His creation and that which was infused into the very blood of the Christ! It is an unconditional and sacrificial love that is from God, always there but not always received from the other party! This is why Peter was grieved at that moment because Peter did not think he had what it took to love like the Father and Jesus loved. Jesus would then tell Peter some thirty years before it actually took place, how Peter would die! In verse 18 above Jesus foretold of what would take place in the year 64 A.D. in which Peter was captured in Rome and he was crucified upside down on a cross. Put yourself in Peter’s shoes and I am pretty sure that no one would want to go to such an event. A disciple’s growth is a process and the living God does the processing through His Christ via the Holy Spirit! It was the truth that took root in Peter over that thirty years that already made Peter free though and that cross had no power over Peter the same way that the cross at Calvary had no power over my Lord Jesus!
How hard would it have been to walk with Jesus? We can read the testimonies of these men and women but can you put yourself in their shoes? Even those who walked with Jesus would end up dying. They were told that Jesus was to return but not sure when. Many would have witnessed the miracles that Jesus did to glorify his Father but then many would had not seen it either.
29 Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”
My gratitude is getting deeper by the day. I know Jesus sees my weakness just like he saw Peters but Jesus also sees my heart just like he saw Peters heart! This should make anyone excited when seeking the truth because what this means is, that if one truly believes in that event at Calvary then it all starts there for those who have followed the original disciples. It means that just like Peter and those who walked with Jesus, we will fall at times. The only question is will we still seek the face of the Father through Christ? Will we still lean on the event that took place when Jesus gave his life for us, was buried for three days, and then raised by the power of the living God so that we too could be redeemed through His Christ! Will we let the power of the Holy Spirit that was sent on Pentecost that same year, take its rightful place in convicting us daily. Teaching us all truth from within just like Jesus said it would?
26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
Like Peter we too will take time and we will find ourselves struggling to see why it is we need faith in what is spoken before we see what is really to come. Jesus warned those men he walked with several times that Jesus would have to lay his life down. It was totally different though when it seemed that these same men thought that their lives were in danger too. Jesus knew their weakness but still loved them so how much more does he know our weakness 2,000 years later?
I urge you all who read these words, the time has come to usher in the second coming of our Lord Jesus!!!!!!!!! If you truly believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of my Lord Jesus then you have to believe in the war we are in too! You have to understand that our Father who art in Heaven is separating the chaff from the wheat as we speak! I have been warning people for a few years now and with every passing day my God and my Lord Jesus bring more confirmation. You can choose to deny this but as for me and my heart, I will continue to seek the guidance that only comes from Yahweh through Christ! Not one person alive can tell me that this is not real and not about to happen because I speak with my Lord Jesus daily! He knows that I am broken and He knows that I seek the answer to this brokenness in his teachings! It is only through the truth of Jesus that all other things in time make sense. No matter past, present, or future, my Lord Jesus is the glue that holds it all together! He is the bridge that links all things together back with the God who holds it all anyway! If you want to take this bridge, you have to believe in the Lord Jesus and what he did in his death, burial, and resurrection. If you deny this event, and deny Jesus is now Lord, you are denied access to the Father!
33 “But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
9 but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.
9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved,
My gratitude is my testimony in the good and bad! Just because the world has been taught things about Jesus doesn't mean Jesus taught these things about himself! I hear so many people talk about other people when teaching the Bible but then then totally leave the words of Jesus out of it. Doesn't make a lot of sense does it? Who gave his life at Calvary? Then what di the men who walked with Jesus say? Even Peter testified to the world in his letter that we have the truth through Christ that links us back to Yahweh because of what Jesus did at that cross!!!!!!!!
1 Peter 1:14-25
14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,
15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;
16 because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (set apart from evil like God is)
17 If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;
18 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers,
19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
20 For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you
21 who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
22 Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,
23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.
“All flesh is like grass,
And all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
And the flower falls off,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
And this is the word which was preached to you.
Like Peter, I now know that what I say is not about me, it is about my Lord Jesus and His Father! I know that we too can be transformed daily resulting in the renewal of my heart, mind, and soul that will glorify the Father just like Jesus taught us! I have been given a huge Revelation about the time frame we are in and what is coming next! Of course any who know me or the words I write know that judgement is coming! The good news is that Yahweh will use those who are truly seeking Him through Christ for a huge revival! Look!
13 O you who dwell by many waters,
Abundant in treasures,
Your end has come,
The measure of your end.
14 The Lord of hosts has sworn by Himself:
“Surely I will fill you with a population like locusts,
And they will cry out with shouts of victory over you.”
15 It is He who made the earth by His power,
Who established the world by His wisdom,
And by His understanding He stretched out the heavens.
16 When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens,
And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth;
He makes lightning for the rain
And brings forth the wind from His storehouses.
Yahweh has confirmed through His word that America is the Babylon spoke of in this chapter! The good news is for those who trust in Christ we will be sent Yahweh's (God's) Spirit or breath for strength to make it through what is to come. We are to raise up a shout against this evil and to get right before God first and then our brothers! To keep repeating the same sins over and over shows no true repentance! Meaning our minds are not changed, we only entertain the idea of Jesus not a surrender to him!
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.
18 Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.
19 My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back,
20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
It is has never been the will of Yahweh that mankind should parish, it has always been the defiance of mankind that we have. Evil is the same as always and will be taken care of soon but first the faithful will be made known to the Father! How can He send His son if you are not tested first? The world is in for a rude awaking and it will soon be hell on earth. Who will you turn too?
10 “Now as for you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus you have spoken, saying, “Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we are rotting away in them; how then can we survive?” ’
11 “Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?’
12 “And you, son of man, say to your fellow citizens, ‘The righteousness of a righteous man will not deliver him in the day of his transgression, and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he will not stumble because of it in the day when he turns from his wickedness; whereas a righteous man will not be able to live by his righteousness on the day when he commits sin.’
The only righteousness obtained by anyone person who has lived after Christ, is through Christ! Take it or leave it? I will ask the Father to guide me in the weeks ahead so that He can allow me to write a deeper insight on the things to come which we are warned about in His word! I can only pray that hearts will open to the truth of His Christ before it is too late! May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your hearts in the days ahead!
