This Week's Sermon ( 7-27-17 )

" And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. "   Revelation 13:16-17


Something was recently mentioned in the news that I want to take a moment to talk about.

There is a company here in the USA that got the idea from Europe, ( where this has already been going on ), to implant a microchip in the hand of its employees.

There have been microchips already in the past used for medical information but this microchip has more to it than just medical information.

It gives the employee the ability to buy things with this microchip implanted in their hand.

The company has not made this a mandatory procedure.

The employees that want this in their hand, volunteer.

Obviously, this is not the mark of the beast.

So far, this has nothing to do with the antichrist.

However, when the antichrist does come on the political scene, he will know about this technology and use it for his purpose, later.

My friend, we may be getting closer to the rapture - that is, when Jesus returns to catch His people up into the clouds, than we think.

This event known as the rapture is to happen before the antichrist brings the Jews and the Arabs to signing the 7 year peace treaty...commonly known as the 7 Year Tribulation period.

The antichrist's future mandatory rule, that in order to buy food, gas for the car, etc... one must have his identification mark in the right hand or the forehead he will establish later during the 7 year treaty.

While I was watching this news story, I noticed the microchip shown to the media was being laid on the person's right hand.

Interesting!

I know I could still die before Jesus comes back but I will always watch for His return.

Jesus said;

" Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. "   Luke 21:36

Keep your faith in Jesus and keep watching for Him to return, as Jesus Himself told us to do.

This Week's Sermon ( 9-20-16 )

" Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. "  Daniel 9:24

" And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. "  Daniel 9:27

As vast as God Himself is, so is His word, the Holy Bible, consisting of 66 books written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

With careful study of God's word, the " weeks " mentioned here in the book of Daniel, refer to years.

The " Seventy weeks " of Daniel are 490 years of Bible prophecy, carried out over a vast period of time including thousands of years. These " weeks " pertain to when Israel is a nation...and only then.

Technically, since Daniel prophesied all this, 483 years of these " seventy weeks " have already been fulfilled.

There is " one week " left remaining - that is, 7 years.

This " one week " or 7 years, is what evangelicals refer to as the 7 year tribulation period.

What starts this final " one week " or 7 years, is when the antichrist brings the Jews and the Arabs to sign a 7 year peace treaty.

If you are watching the news about Syria, there will someday come a man who will have ideas that will work to bring a temporary peace in that country...and throughout Israel and the Middle East.

He is what the Bible refers to as the antichrist.

John said;

" Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. "   1 John 2:18

It is interesting that John and the other believers in Jesus, 2000 years ago, thought they were approaching the 7 year tribulation period.

How much closer are we today.

Of course, Jesus will return to rapture those of us up into the clouds who believe in Jesus, as Paul said, just before this man in Syria brings about this temporary peace, and brings the Jews and the Arabs together to agree on and sign a 7 year peace treaty.

This Week's Sermon ( 9-6-16 )

" And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one cometh unto the Father, but by me. "   John 14:4-6


I recently took food to the homeless in downtown Denver.

My wife and I used to do this when she was alive.

I told the homeless living on the streets to do me a favor and give their heart to Jesus Christ. I told them that Jesus is not merely one of many ways to Heaven.

One spoke up immediately, who had only one leg in a wheel chair, and said - " The only way. "

I told him he got it right.

This blessed me so much to hear him say this.

My friend, Jesus has people everywhere, even living on the streets.

Do not judge who is a believer in Jesus by how much he or she has in material possessions in this present life.

Jesus has poor people too.

And yes, Jesus is literally the only way to Heaven, just as Jesus Himself said, and the homeless guy in the wheel chair said.

This Week's Sermon ( 8-23-16 )

" And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the number of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. "   Revelation 13:16-18

 

All we know is the antichrist will require an identification mark or number that identifies the person with him, to be able to buy food, clothing, etc... and to be able to sell anything, during the time of his reign.

It will be an identification mark that will be placed either on the person's right hand or forehead that will consist of either some kind of a mark, his number or the number of his name.

It is not clear who gets which kind of identification mark or number but it will obviously be readable by a computer scanner upon presentation and will confirm that the person is a member of the antichrist's organization.

I just learned recently that technology has advanced to the point that a computer designer came up with a scanner that can actually read a person's blood flow when they place their hand on the scanner and will confirm that the person whose hand is placed on the scanner is programmed into the system and has authorized access. The only problem with this presently is if the person has a skin situation that would block the scanner from being able to read the blood flow, the person would have to use the other hand.

What is interesting is that no computer "chip " is necessary. It reads the blood flow.

This technology is expensive but a major company who can afford this is now renting this new computer for handling its finances.

I asked someone who is programmed into this computer and has authorized access if they could foresee the day when people would be making purchases with this method of technology.

The answer was, "yes".

My friend, if the antichrist John prophesied of is alive today, he will have the modern technology to enforce his mark or number in a way that only people who have his identification mark or number can make purchases or sell anything...according to John's prophecy.

We may be nearing the time of the 7 year tribulation period faster than we think...which is when this system of buying and selling with an identification mark or number is supposed to happen, according to Scripture.

Which means, fortunately, the event Paul described for the born again believer in Jesus, could be closer to happening than we think.

" For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words. "   1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

Praise the Lord!
