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 ( 7-26-16 )

" And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. "   Acts 1:9-11

Yes, " this same Jesus " will come again, just as He left.

I was on Mt. Olivet in 1993 where Jesus ascended 2000 years ago.

While I was looking at the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem from the Mt. of Olives I was thinking about when Jesus returns.

And, who is " this same Jesus " ?

He is God in the flesh.

Jesus clearly said;

" I and my Father are one. "    John 10:30

My friend, every religion on earth claims to be the only way to Heaven.

Jesus made the same claim.

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

Within world religions, there is a compromise of their claim to be the only way to Heaven as some of its leaders will say, in the end, all people will end up in Heaven.

This is contrary to the teaching of the Holy Bible .

Jesus said hell is eternal, not temporary, and Jesus also said there will be more people end up in eternal hell than will make it to Heaven.

" Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. "   Matthew 7:13-14

So again, we choose to believe who and what we want.

I choose to believe Jesus.

When it comes time to die or when Jesus returns, I hope all of us will rest our faith in Jesus.

Yes, Jesus is God in the flesh... God, who came to earth and was born of a virgin, was made of the seed of Abraham, grew up as we do, was tempted as we are, felt physically tired and needed sleep as we do, got hungry as we do, knew what grief, sorrow and sadness is like as we do, knew physical pain as we do, and died for us.

God died in human flesh and was resurrected from the dead bodily as we will be when Jesus returns.

Jesus clearly said after His resurrection;

" Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. "   Luke 24:39

John said about the return of Jesus;

" Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. "   1 John 3:2

I hope Jesus comes today.

The Lord bless you.

This Week's Sermon: ( 7-5-16 )

" Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.  "   Revelation 1:7

" 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

" But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  "  2 Peter 3:8-9


Before my wife died, she told me she thought Jesus was coming soon.

John wrote in the verse I quoted that Jesus will return plainly visible for all to see.

John also said that even though there are many antichrists, there is specifically one that will come that obviously was prophesied about. With the situation in the Middle East today, I have no doubt he is soon to come within the political realm and do what the Bible prophesied he will do.

Peter said the Lord is not slow in coming back, even though Peter, along with the other disciples of Jesus and those who followed and believed in Jesus 2000 years ago, were looking for and expecting Jesus to return even back in their day.

I will continue this discussion about the return of Jesus soon.

Personally, I wish He would come today.

The Lord bless you.

This Week's Sermon: ( 5-18-16 )

" And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. "   Revelation 13:8


God wanted to become a human being even before He created this planet.

Before the world began God had already planned that He would become man and die for us.

In God's way of thinking it was aready done...even back then.

Incredible.

Jesus existed before this planet was created.

Jesus said;

" And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. "   John 17:5

However, it wasn't until what God calls the latter times, that He became a human being.


My friend, always remember what Jesus said about Himself;

" I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.    John 14:6

This does not mean that Jesus is one of many ways to Heaven, as some believe.

This does not mean getting to Heaven requires Jesus plus someone or something else, as many believe.

What Jesus said means literally Jesus, and Him alone, is the only way to Heaven.

We either believe this or we don't.

The choice is ours.
