How can anything be “NEW,” when it’s very origins came from the time of the Tower of Babel, and Sun god worship, and Ishtar the “Queen of Heavens” as the Fertility goddess symbolized by EGGS and Rabbits? [Can you not see "Easter- eggs and bunnies here?]
Who today, practices this stuff, with its heavy reliance of the Occult and its symbols, plus the reliance upon Spiritualism, which has Satan’s blessings? Most of “Christian” denominations, are colored by it in various degrees. One of the biggest proponents, of this is the “Purpose Driven Church” by Rick Warren, who publicly states, “I will not allow the Book of Revelation to be taught in MY CHURCH!”
OH? MR. Warren YOU know of course how this book begins, do you not?…..
Revelation 1:1-3 “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
So, MR. Warren, did I understand you correctly, that YOU willingly will with hold, Christ’s testimony, and thereby HIS blessings for those that hear the words of this prophecy?????
STEPS to the BOTTOM FOR SATAN.
STEP 1: Revelation 12:7 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” Step 1 is setting one’s self up against God and His law. Should not all people copy the example set by Jesus Christ? Luke 4:16 “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.” But YOU, as sadly most so-called “Christians” follow the edicts of Rome and worship on the “Venerable day of the Sun” as per the degree, in 321 A.D. by the Roman Emperor Constantine, which Roman church only to happily incorporated within itself, tom this day! It is their tradition, which they hold above the Holy Bible! Thus most are obeying the commandments of men, not God’s!
Note: In the Latter Days, just before Christ’s return, there shall be only TWO camps of people ONE that obeys God, and the are those that obeys man, these are the lost, that shall perish! Very simple is it not?
Step 2. Revelation 12:9-10 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”
Why anyone who professes to be a Christ man or woman, will NOT study the Bible, precept upon precept, line upon line, is beyond my grasp. I mean is life eternal of so little import, is the fact that Christ took YOUR PLACE, and died for your sins, of so little worth to you, that you can’t be bothered to learn all you can about HE , and ONLY HE, that can Save YOU? After All when Jesus died on the Cross, and was resurrected, Satan was defeated! Plus he knows it… 1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” Ezekiel 28:15-19 “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.”
Step 3. Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” We can all know that Christ totally defeated Satan, by the simple fact that we each can call on Jesus, to help us overcome Satan’s temptations! Revelation 12:12 “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” However, those of us whom follow and obey the commandments of men will endure…… Revelation 19:11-13 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.”
SO WHAT MUST WE DO?
1 Thessalonians 4:13. “And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.” All this is for the believers, by just asking the Father for it and Jesus’ name! For we can not rebuild self, nor change out thinking habits for the good.
SO WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS OLD DEVIL, SATAN?
Revelation 20:1-3 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
This is the time many call the Millennium Age, the 1,000 years between Christ’s return, and at its end the saints and the New Jerusalem and all of Heaven will return to this earth, and this city will cover the area God had promised to Abraham so long ago! ” [Rev.21:2] This will become the Second Resurrection, consisting of all those who have rejected Christ, and they shall come out of the graves, not in the Glorious Bodies of the Christ and his saints, but the bodies and the with all the ailments that they had at His 2nd Advent!
They ALL will again be deceived by Satan, and they will surround the New City, to try to take by force, that which was freely offered to them during their live-span, to eat from the Tree of Life, at Satan’s urging! That’s when fire and brimstone will come down, all across earth, and it shall purify it and remove all sinners, by reducing the almost instantly to ashes!
How can a LOVING GOD destroy the wicked, ask many!
God told Israel to eliminate sin filled people, that inhabited the Promised lands right? Plus all but 8 Souls were lost in the Noahtic Flood. Then right after wards when the saints inherit the earth, God cause all who reject Him and His Son, to perish in the Lake of Fire’s one and only usage! Now all who have rejected the Father and the Son, shall by both also be rejected! None of them would be happy without wild parties, booze, dope, and all the rest is the sins, and God knows it! Thus He withdraws His Spirit from them and as He is also the very source of LIFE ITSELF, they cease to live! Simply no more complicated than that, HE loves each us very ,very much, so much so that Our Father will give them what they request, His presence, no longer within them. The they perish, and perish for ever! Psalms 149:6-7 “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;” The Word of God, the Holy Bible, IS THE two-edged sword, it can cut away the sins we carry, if we are but willing to let got of them! As He is life, they chose death, which is living without Jesus!
John 5:24-29 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;[ 1st Resurrection] and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection [2nd Resurrection] of damnation.”
Notice that the Father has committed the Son, Jesus all judgments concerning humanity? WHY? Christ lived as a Flesh Man, tempted in all areas we are tempted, yet His lived with sin, without blemish or spot. So He Jesus can can empathy for what we humans endure while on earth, being temped by Sin that Satan pushes forth, all thought he can’t force any one to do anything against your will, he finds many ever willing right? Hebrews 2:14-17 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.” Hebrews 1:14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” All Heaven stands ready to help those who call on Jesus in faith/Trust! John 5:26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
Revelation 20:12-15 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Yes all have, and are, sinners, but if we surrender unto Jesus, HE will give us of His power to us to over come any sin.
Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” All it takes on our part is a willing heart! Yet always know this no matter the sin you have behind you, God is big enough to help you gain victory by accepting YOU no matter where you are, Christ’ s death is payment enough for all sins for all time from all humans!
So, why do I keep coming back to Christ and His death on the Cross? In order for ALL, me included, to be able to see the cost if sin! Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” OK, but what is sin? Romans 7:7 “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.” But. . .but why all the concentration of the Sabbath as the day of and for worship?
Notice the 4th Commandment:
Exodus 20:8-11″ Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
Revelation 14:7 “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” Do you see how much these two passages have in common? No look at…. James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” Now, PLEASE look at a calendar, and take note of the seventh day Saturday, plus know as well that is 85 languages their word for Saturday means REST, and in the Hebrew Sabbath means rest! How can that be, with God?
