How to best prepare to meet God

 How to best prepare to meet God in all worship Services. God Himself is still now calling us to come to him.
1. First, you should prepare to meet God alone  in any worship  service, not the Pastor, your friends, or to show off your clothes, and we need to prepare for worship of God  by drawing near to God in our hearts even firstly at home, at work, in our surroundings, hourly, daily, and note not just a few hours on Sunday! Few people next make it to the Sunday evening Service and even fewer people next do make to the prayer meeting.. showing really to all as how much they really do love God
2 Samuel 22:33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
1 Chronicles 16:11 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.
27 Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
28 Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
Ecclesiastes 4:6 Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
Isaiah 30::15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
Proverbs 23:4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
Proverbs 22:1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
2 The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
4 By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
Psalms 37:16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
Proverbs 27:24 For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation?
Proverbs 13:7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
Proverbs 30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
Ecclesiastes 6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
Job 20:15 He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.
Psalms 62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
Proverbs 10 :22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
2 Corinthians 6:10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
Luke 6:24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Colossians 3L16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
1 Timothy 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
Isaiah 44:22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.
Malachi 3:7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?
Jeremiah 4:1 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.
Jeremiah 24:7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
When God said  “You did not return to me,” he did not mean that they should have come more often to a physical place of worship. The returning was not a physical movement. Returning to God was a movement of the heart, not just  a movement of the body.
Psalms 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Psalms 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Isaiah 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
There is always heart preparation to be done in order to meet God.
Jesus said, “This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me” (Matt. 15:8). When this is the case the preparation needed is a movement of the heart from far to near, and yet it is a movement that is not measured in inches or miles.
— It is measured with the tape of attention — you may not even be thinking of God Saturday night or Sunday morning. So your heart is far from him measured by attention.
— Or it may be measured by the tape of focus — you may have some attention on God but it is broken up by other things and there is no focused attention that gets God clearly in view and makes him the primary object of attention.
— It is measured by the tape of desire — you may feel little desire for God but be very much caught up in a greater desire for sports or finances or a trip to the lake, while the desire and the longing for God is weak by comparison.
— Or it can be measured by the tape of trust and hope — your trust in God may be weak and your hope faint and wavering.
— Or it may be measured by the tape of delight or joy in God — you may feel much more pleasure Saturday night in a late movie than in meeting God in the morning.
Everyone of us is far from where we want to be on one of these measuring tapes every week.
Our primary goal is to meet God , and to commune with him and to hear him and to speak to him and to savor him and this is very hard to do and that it takes teaching an and preparation of heart, a conscious priority — a sustained, God centered focus on dealing with God without mere human distraction
2. The second preparation for God and his  worship is that we always do still renounce all of our known sin in our lives before coming to worship God.
I John 1:9     That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5    This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Many of  wealthy people of Israel in the Old testament had also  tried to make love with their true husband while keeping a mistress on the side. They tried to worship God while concealing their many sins in their lives. They also wrongfully had  oppressed the poor, and crushed the needy, while trying to live in wealth and luxury. 
2 Chronicles 28”10 And now ye purpose to keep under the children of Judah and Jerusalem for bondmen and bondwomen unto you: but are there not with you, even with you, sins against the LORD your God?
Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Jeremiah 5:25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.
Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Worship will inevitably become a weak, empty form and ritual if we try to keep on with it while our hearts are running after other gods. God will gladly take the dirtiest sinner into his arms on Sunday morning who comes with a broken and contrite heart intent on forsaking all known sin and trusting in Jesus for cleansing. But God will not be mocked by those who make like they love him and willfully break his law during the week. So the second act of preparation is to confess and renounce all known sin and come to the  worship of God cleansed by the blood of Jesus and resting in his forgiveness and hope.
3. The third preparation for the worship of God is that we take note of how God has been trying to get our attention.
Five times in Amos 4 God says that he had done specific things in the lives of his people to turn them back to himself. And five times it says, “Yet you did not return to me.” Each of these things God had done to get their attention could be explained as natural events with no divine cause. But God holds Israel accountable to listen and respond. That’s the meaning of “Yet you did not return to me.”
In not hearing the voice of God, or seeing the hand of God, Israel failed to prepare to meet him. That is what we must not do. We must wake up and stop looking at our lives like secular, scientific,  naturalists. God is doing things in your life which are gracious providential messages to return to him and trust him. Take note of what he God has been saying to us in our lives to draw us to himself.
4. Finally, worship starts by also going to a n honest,, holy spirit led church where all of  Christ’s truth are  honored and fellowshipping also during the week with the Body of Christ, in prayer as well.
The Israelites were clearly a religious people. They came to Bethel and came gladly. But they had lost touch with the God of truth and they were not worshiping in truth. There were some left over forms like tithing and thank-offerings and sacrifices. But the very center and heart of worship was missing — the true God.
“So I close with these suggestions for how we might prepare ourselves and others to meet effectively our God even in the Church services:
1. Set aside some time during the week and pray for all of the Church services, and especially Saturday night begin the orientation onto worship. Turn off the television and set your mind on things that above with the word of God and a time of prayer. Pray that God will be manifest in the services, that men will be convicted of sins and judgment and will thus repent.
2. Saturday night also do Go to bed early enough so that you are fresh and emotionally alive Sunday morning. The price of late night movies or parties on Saturday will be powerless worship Sunday morning.
3. Get up in time Sunday so that you do not have to rush to get to church, but have a little time to be alone with God and ask his blessing on you and your family and on the church. I can almost promise you that you depth of your communion with God in the service will be directly proportionate to the way you have sought the Lord for his blessing Saturday night and Sunday morning. This will take some discipline and some planning. But you will probably never turn back once you taste the fruit.
4. When you come into the sanctuary begin to seek the Lord. That means that by and large there will be a holy hush across the sanctuary. But it will be a very different kind of stillness than the awkward silence before a Sunday School class where you want everyone to mill around and talk and nobody is. There is a world of difference. And the difference will be made and felt by whether hundreds of you really going hard after God, or just politely waiting for the show to begin. You will make the difference in those minutes as to whether a visitor senses cool distance or the reality of God. The very point of those moments of going hard after of God is that this room will be filled with the power of God. The goal of those moments is not that people will be impressed with us — either our piety or our friendliness — but that they will fall on their face and say, “God is in this place.” And that will only happen people are taken up with God.
If you want your friendship to go deep with someone, I invite you to make an experiment. As you enter the sanctuary talking, and the prelude begins, try saying this: “Let’s finish this discussion after the service. I think John needs our prayers. Let’s do battle for him.” My wager is; that camaraderie in the warfare of prayer will take your friendship deeper than another five minutes of conversation.
5. If you have to come late –and we all do from time to time — minister to those who have to sit in the commons and minister to those worshipping in the sanctuary with a spirit of worship and prayer.
6. Finally, before every act of worship, whether a hymn or a reading or a prayer or an anthem or a moment of silence or a sermon, say to Lord, “Lord, I come. I come to loved worship, praise and to sing to you. I come to pray to you. I come to listen to your word. I come to enjoy your presence.” Don’t drift through the service as though the action is on the platform. Become the main player Listens and  also do pray for the others during the services, pray that they will listen, repent as well.
The greatest action in worship is when a heart that is far from the Lord draws near to the Lord, and focuses on him and desires him and trusts him and enjoys him. “
Worship him everyday, prepare  to worship him as well
Matthew :10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Matthew 8 :2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Matthew 9:18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
Matthew 14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
Matthew 1525 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help
Mark 5:6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

“If you wish to go to Paradise, Heaven, New Jerusalem, Heavenly Zion,  you must submit yourself to the authority of God, the King of Kings, Jesus Christ and do things his way, even down to the smallest matters of  If you cannot submit yourself to the King in the  small matter such as they are, why should he expect you to recognize your presence in any other matters? Would he fling open the gates of Paradise and fill his kingdom with rebels? Of Course not.

In order to obtain the original and the final visa (the power to become a son of God) you must recognize (receive) the official who represents the king and all of his demands of you too.. Including  being Holy Spirit filled. The true representative of God is expressed by His anointing. The word “Christ” means “anointed one.” Had the Jews been listening, Jesus told them on more than one occasion where his anointing had  came from. In Luke 4:18-19, Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Even Jesus Christ  He knew he needed God’s Spirit to be with him if he were to accomplish the Father’s purpose in sending him to earth. He had already before this had emptied himself and was a man, powerless to do the work of God in himself (Phil. 2:7-8, John 5:19, 30). When the time came, God had an anointed servant in the earth named John the Baptist. Jesus came and submitted himself to God’s authority expressed through John and was baptized. As he came up out of the water the anointing came upon him like a dove as the Father testified from heaven, “Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Mark 1:11. One thing Jesus said was most telling: “… he hath anointed me to preach the gospel …” (Lk. 4:18).

It was no wonder why Jesus hadn’t tried to preach the gospel before!  Think about it! In spite of the fact that he was the virgin-born Son of God and was both knowledgeable and sincere, he still firstly  lived the life of an obscure carpenter till his baptism! So it too was no wonder why Jesus instructed the disciples to “tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” Luke 24:49. Could it be that the anointing is necessary in order to preach the gospel?

Hebrews 5:4 sets forth a principle of ministry: “And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.” Paul posed the question, “And how shall they preach, except they be sent?” Rom. 10:15. Do you suppose that being sent by a denomination is the same thing as being sent by Christ? There is a great difference between having Christ’s authority and anointing  to do a thing and trying to do it without that Anointing. Yet many falsely try to do the ministry without the anointing, calling.

In Acts 19 there was a chief priest among the Jews names Sceva. He had seven sons who evidently had observed Paul’s authority over evil spirits through the Name of Jesus and thought they would use his method. Before the man with the evil spirit beat them up and chased them away the spirit said to them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?” Acts 19:15. It certainly wasn’t Paul’s method that enabled him to succeed. Devils only recognize and fear those who have authority from Christ.

Many evangelical groups falsely do still  arise each claiming to have a special arrangement with the King to grant visas. These groups develop conflicting ideas about the Gospel even  and the proper procedure for going there. Nevertheless they falsely still do and zealously plunge ahead giving out official-looking documents right and left, competing with one another for followers too. Men and women who undertake to preach the gospel without Christ’s anointing are no more effective than were the seven sons of Sceva. Their followers next also may appear religious but they are still  not citizens of God’s kingdom. It is just a case of the Blind leading the blind here too.  men have learned the words and methods and have employed them without the anointing. The will and leadership of men — often inspired by religious spirits — have been substituted for the active practical leadership of Christ, the Head. Christ has been reduced to a mere figurehead with no real authority or influence over what is done in His Name. The only possible result is Babylon — confusion. Such religious “houses” wind up the same way the Jews’ did — desolate. “

The new Heavenly Jerusalem, the new Zion

spirit

Now the old, earthly Zion or the earthly Jerusalem temple,  was overthrown by the Romans in 70 A.D. So the new Zion is the Heavenly kingdom of God that Jesus is yet bringing forth. Clearly all of the   Old Testament references to Zion are now meant to be referred to the new Heavenly Jerusalem, the new Zion. For example-
.
Ps 9.11 :’Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion.’
.
Under the new covenant,  God — the Spirit of God — dwells in the mind of the believer, making the believer’s body, ‘the temple of the Holy Spirit’ [1 Cor 6.19]. So then, God  would not go back to the old covenant in order to take up residence in a  stone temple..
.
Ps. 14.7 ‘O that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion, when the Lord restores his captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.’
.
Jesus with his Free Salvation had rose out of Jerusalem, for both the the Jews   and Gentiles — who can now be set free from the bondage to the law an to the consequences of sin. . ‘Whom the son sets free is free in deed'[John 8.36]. .
.
Ps. 78.67,68,70  ‘He also rejected the tent of Joseph, and did not choose the tribe of Ephraim, but chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion which he loved.’… ‘He also chose David his servant and took him from the sheepfolds.’
.
Though this referred to the preservation of David’s tribe, Judah, after the destruction of the other 11 tribes, these words are fulfilled by Jesus, the good shepherd descendant of David, who established the new heavenly   Zion for all  by his conquest of death and sin  at the cross.
.
Ps. 84.5,7 ‘How blessed is the man whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways (to Zion)… every one of them appears before God in Zion.’
.
Ps. 87.2 ‘The Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the  dwelling places of Jacob.’
.
English-language translations of the Bible customarily italicize words not found in the Hebrew or Greek scriptures such as other. we all should know by now that Jesus is the only gate,door  to heaven,  John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
.
Ps. 87.6 ‘The Lord will count when he registers the peoples, “This one was born there [in Zion].”
.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. As Jesus said, the new birth that counts is the spiritual rebirth. Those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life [Rev 20.12] have been born of the Spirit, not of flesh and blood  So there is no use having been born in  the old Jerusalem if one hasn’t been born again, saved by the intervention of Jesus Christ. 
.
Ps. 99.2  ‘The Lord is great in Zion’
.
Ps. 102.21 :’that men may tell the name of the Lord in Zion’
.
All Christians and God himself will dwell in the new Jersualem that comes down form heaven   Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.  Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
.
The name of the Lord, under the old covenant, was  not,fully revealed under the new covenant, the name of ‘Jesus Christ’ surfaces as the name of the Lord. It has become possible to tell the name of the Lord   Jesus.. the name above all names Ephesians 1: 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 
.
‘Jesus’ or in Hebrew ‘Yah shua’ means ‘Yaweh saves.’ Knowing now this name suffices for all just as seeing Jesus sufficed for seeing the Father [Jn 14.8].
.
Ps 110.1,2 ‘The LORD says to my Lord: sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet. The LORD will stretch forth your strong scepter from Zion…’
.
Hebrews 1:  1    God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.13 But to which of the angels said he at any times, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
.
The fourth verse of this psalm 110 says that God has determined that this savior is ‘a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek,’ a passage that Heb. 7.  says refers to Jesus, the consummate priest. 
.
Hebrews 7: 1    For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.4 Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.7 And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.8 And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Is 28.16,18 ‘Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed [moved].’ and ‘Your pact with Sheol will not stand.’
.
Paul in Rom 9.33 and Peter in 1 Pet 2.6 say Is 28.16 refers to Jesus.  Ro 9: 7 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

1 Peter 2: 1    Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
.
Ps. 129.5 ‘May all who hate Zion be put to shame and turned backward.’
.
Luke 20  9 Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.10 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.11 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.15 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.17 And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
.
Is 8.18 ‘Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders from the LORD of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion.’
.
Heb 2.13 takes this passage to refer to Jesus.  Hebrews 2: 1    Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will? 5    For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.14 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;15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.17 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.18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
.
Is 24.23  ‘The LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem.’
.
We know that Mount Zion is now a heavenly place and the Book of Revelation tells us to expect a new, heavenly Jerusalem  Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
.
Is 30.19-21  ‘O people in Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you. Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, your Teacher will no longer hide himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or the left.’
.
Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.30 I and my Father are one.   John 1613 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
.
Is 33.5 ‘He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness.’
.
Not much justice and righteousness in earthly  Jerusalem. However, John 16:8 And when he is come, 9 (The Holy Spirit) he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
.
Is 35.5,6,10 ‘Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will shout for joy.’  ‘And the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful shouting to Zion, with everlasting joy upon their heads.’
.
When John the Baptist queried Jesus as to whether he was the Messiah, Jesus replied: ‘Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have the good news preached to them.’
.
  From Jesus’ own deeds , past and present too, we can see that he was a sign of the true Zion. And a person who has truly received Jesus as Lord has entered that Zion, the land of eternal bliss, and, despite hardships, will shout for joy at the wonder of this event.
.
Is 37.32 ‘For out of Jerusalem will go forth a remnant and out of Mount Zion, survivors.’
.
Romans 11 5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
.
Revelation 11 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. 
.
Revelation 12 17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
.
Is 40.9 ‘Get yourself up on a high mountain, O Zion, bearer of good news … say to the cities of Judah “Here is your God.”‘
.
Jesus was lifted up on Mount Calvary with the inscription: ‘King of the Jews.’ and he is God too.
.
Is 49.14 ‘But Zion said, the LORD has forsaken me…’
.
Jesus cried out on the cross: ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ [Mk 15.34]
.
Is 51.3  ‘Indeed, the LORD will comfort Zion…and her wilderness he will make like Eden.’
.
John 14” 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
.
John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
.
John 16 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Is 51.11 ‘So the ransomed of the LORD will return and come with joyful shouting to Zion.’
.
Is 52.7 ‘How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation, and says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”‘
.
Is 52.8 ‘For they will see with their own eyes when the LORD restores Zion.’
.
Is 61.2,3 ‘…to comfort all who mourn, to grant all those who mourn in Zion…’
.
Is 52.3 Zion ‘will be redeemed without money.’
.
Jesus said Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
.
Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
.
Jesus told his hearers that Is 61.1,2 had been fulfilled in their hearing.
.
Is 62.1,2 ‘For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake, I will not rest’ until the ‘nations [Gentiles] will see your righteousness… and you will be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD will designate.’
.
The name of Jesus is lifted up among the Gentiles.
.
Is 66.8 ‘Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons.’
.
The new Zion was brought forth by the sacrifice of Jesus and began in power on the day of the feast of Pentecost, when immediately thousands turned to Jesus for salvation [Acts 2.41].
.
Jer 3.14 ‘…return O faithless sons…and I will take you one from a city, and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.’
.
Joel 2.32 ‘And it will come about that whoever calls upon the name of the LORD will be delivered; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape.’
.
Paul in Rom 10.13 applies this scripture to anyone who calls on Jesus, who will then escape hellfire. Joel 2.28 — ‘I will pour out my spirit on all mankind’ — is cited by Peter during the Pentecost speech. The full  salvation provided by Jesus more than fulfills scripture.
.
Obadiah 17 ‘…on Mount Zion will be those who escape…’
.
Those who escape the wrath to come [Mt 3.7] are those who put their trust in Jesus.
.
Mic 4.2 ‘Many nations will come and say, Come let us go up to the mountain of the LORD and to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us about his ways and that we may walk in his paths. For from Zion will go forth the law, even the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.’
.
The full  salvation, deliverance, redemption, healing. empowerment, equipping   provided by Jesus in Jerusalem more than fulfills scripture.
.
Zeph 3.12-15 ‘But I will leave among you a humble and lowly people, and they will take refuge in the name of the LORD. The remnant of Israel will do no wrong and tell no lies, nor will a deceitful tongue be found in their mouths; for they will feed and lie down with no one to make them tremble.
.
‘Shout for joy, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O Israel!…The LORD has taken away his judgments against you, he has cleared away your enemies.’
.
Jesus told us to learn of him, who is humble and lowly [Mt 11.29]. Those who trust in Jesus, who paid for all crimes against God, no longer need fear anything at all, and as they are perfected, they become less and less prone to wrongdoing. And God does not look upon sin because the believer has been pardoned by Jesus. So those put right with God through Jesus have every reason to shout for joy.
.
Zec 9.9 ‘Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion…Behold your king is coming to you; he is just and endowed with salvation, humble and mounted on a donkey…’
.
Fulfilled by Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, where he was greeted as the son of David — the Messiah.
.
Zec 9.10 ‘I will cut off the [war] chariot from Ephraim and the [war] horse from Jerusalem; and the war bow will be cut off. And he will speak peace to the nations; and his dominion will be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.’
.
Jesus, who has been granted all power in heaven and earth, gives his followers the ‘peace of God, that passes understanding’ [Phlp 4.7].  eben under any conditions.
.
John 14 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
.
John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
.
1 Timothy 1:2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
.
2 Timothy 1:2 To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
.
Matthew 21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

Mark 11:9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
.
10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
.
Luke 19:38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
.
John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
.
And as far as the Jews Jesus has said Matthew 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
.
(Psa 122:6 KJV)  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7  Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8)  For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. 9  Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

These verses today really apply to the New Jerusalem that Jesus Christ Himself is building, , the Spiritual Jerusalem of the body of Christ and yes still prayer needs to be made for peace in the Houses of God amongst the brethren now as well..

ALL DOCTRINES HAVE TO BE STUDIED BY THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

18
Matthew 28:20 …’lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.’
.

John 6:44 …’No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.’

.

John 11:24 …’Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.’

.

John 12:48 …’He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.’

.

The Church separation takes place at the end of the world, NOT before. We are resurrected on the last day, NOT before. We receive our judgment and reward on the last day, NOT before. Friends, this is the BIBLE TRUTH. Please heed the Word of the LORD, not the teachings of man!”
 .

.”. IN REALITY ALL DOCTRINES HAVE TO BE STUDIED BY THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND NOT BY THE WORDS OF THE FALSE DISPENSATIONALIST PREACHERS. YOU HAVE TO TAKE EVERY WORD YOU HEAR AND SUBJECT IT TO THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE BIBLE.. MOST TEACHINGS AND PREACHING’S TODAY DO CONTAIN MAJOR FALSEHOODS THAT DO NOT LINE UP WITH THE NEW TESTAMENT; 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
.

 
THERE IS A RAPTURE? WHO SAYS SO?   AND REALLY NOW ALSO WE CANNOT WAIT FOR THE RAPTURE AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING.. THIS IS JUST WISHFUL THINKING FOR CARNAL CHRISTIANS CLEARLY.
.
 
The rapture, often called “the blessed hope,” is sadly more hoax than hope, even though the man who started it had no intention of deceiving anyone. You need to know what the Bible actually says!
 .
Just look at the very name “rapture”. You will not find this word anywhere in the Bible. Not only is the word rapture not in the Bible, most Christians who believe in this teaching can’t even agree as to whether they will be taken before, during, or after the seven year tribulation. There is just utter confusion on this, when there shouldn’t be, as God’s Word is very clear on it. It’s a false teaching
 .

Now as any decent Christian who knows the Bible should by now know that the Rapture invented by the devil and his followers about 200 years ago, these dispensationalists, clearly are even cowards not willing to die for Jesus Christ here on earth 1 Thessalonians 4:17 is the SINGLE Scripture used to justify THE RAPTURE by false doctrine. Based on Scripture, you cannot make a whole doctrine on one isolated verse.. Rapist are also so wrong on so many new testament doctrines, especially those about the Holy Spirit. The rapture, often called “the blessed hope,” is sadly more hoax than hope, an idea that had not been taught in the history of Christendom for 1800 years. You need to know what the Bible actually says! Credit for its origin generally goes to very weird John Nelson Darby, a 19th-century apostate theologian. If the rapture were truly a biblical doctrine, it would mesh with all other scriptural references to Christ’s coming. But it does not stand up to that test, Jesus said, “…the Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; meaning Scripture agrees within itself. For such a seemingly major doctrine, one might expect a weighty argument, but this is what is offered in The Scofield Bible’s Reference Notes (1917 Edition): “…’caught up’—Not church saints only, but all bodies of the saved [that is, not only the living, but also the dead], of whatever dispensation, are included in the first resurrection… [It] is peculiarly the ‘blessed hope’ of the Church (cf) Matthew 24:42 ; 25:13; Luke 12:36-48 ; Acts 1:11; Philippians 3:20, 21; Titus 2:11-13 This offers surprisingly little information, considering how many accept the rapture doctrine based upon these notes; And some false rapturists today cite Acts 8:39 See All…, saying it uses the same Greek word that is translated “caught up” in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 . They say that the fact the Spirit of God “caught [Philip] away” shows that 1 Thessalonians 4:17 means that the saints are caught away to heaven. Yet the Spirit did not transport Philip to heaven, but rather from one place on the earth to another; JESUS is in the garden just before his death praying for US – YOU AND ME.
.
John 17:15 (JESUS praying to The Father) “I pray NOT that thou shouldest TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, but that thou should keep them from evil.”
.
Verse 20 – Neither pray I for these alone but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. (That is you and me.)
.
If JESUS asked NOT to take us OUT, we’re NOT going! The Rapture theory has nothing to do with your Salvation. Just make sure you are ready to meet Jesus, no matter how or when you die, or when Jesus returns to the earth to set up His Kingdom.

 .
Revelation 21:27, “And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”
.

Matthew 13:24-30 …’Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.’

.

“When we come across such clear Bible verses as these, we should not need to debate the issue, because God has left no doubt what the truth is. These verses alone show the rapture theory to be false. Notice that Jesus says to leave the wheat (children of God) and the tares (the wicked) TOGETHER UNTIL THE HARVEST. But the harvest IS the “rapture” you may say? Well, if the rapture is the harvest, then this world must continue after the harvest right? Because that is what the rapture theory teaches, that the world continues for at least another 7 years AFTER the church has been taken.

.

Look at the following scripture:

.

Matthew 13:38-40 …’The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; THE HARVEST IS THE END OF THE WORLD; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.’

.

So we have a number of very clear points here. The church (wheat) and the wicked (tares) are not separated until the harvest. The harvest happens at the end of the world when Jesus comes at the second coming with His angels. The angels gather the wicked FIRST.

.

Those who believe the rapture teaching are waiting for Jesus to take them away from this world FIRST, before the end. And yet the above scripture clearly shows that the church will continue to stay on this earth until the end. And the lost will be gathered first, not the church. Proof that the rapture teaching is false and that there is no separation until the end of the world”

.

The word ‘rapture’ is based on the words ‘caught up’ in the Bible verses following in Thessalonians:

.

“1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 …’For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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.’

.

Now if we study the above verses IN CONTEXT, we will see another description of the second coming in Chapter 5 vs 2 … “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” … This thief in the night description is also used by the rapture supporters. But if we take a look at another Bible passage that talks about Jesus coming like a thief in the night, we can gain a TRUE understanding of it:

.

2 Peter 3:10 …’But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.’”.

.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-4 …’For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.’

.

Matthew 24:43 …’But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.’

.

Revelation 3:3 …’Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt NOT watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.’

.

Revelation 16:15 …’Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.’

.

Do you see a clear theme here? Friends, you have the amazing Bible truth right there! Jesus is NOT coming as a thief for the church. He is coming as a thief for the lost!

.

Another popular false teaching which is taught alongside by the false Dispensationalists  and is used to support the rapture teaching is the left behind doctrine. This has become so popular that NOVELS have been written about it, selling multiple millions of copies. And yet, along with the rapture teaching, it can EASILY be proven false from the simple Word of our Awesome Creator and Saviour. So let us do that straight away.

.

Luke 17:36-37 …’Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.’

.

So those who support the rapture teaching believe that the one taken is the one raptured to heaven, as you can gather from the picture, and the one left behind is the one that goes through the 7 year tribulation after the church is raptured. Some even believing that the one left behind gets a second chance at salvation, which is a VERY dangerous teaching.

.

Now if you read Luke 17 in context, you will see that Jesus is describing His physical, visible second coming. And during this event He says that between two people in the field, one will be taken and one will be left. Now remember what we discussed at the very beginning of this page? We proved that it is only at the end of the world that this separation takes place. So from that we know, this event in Luke is the ONE coming of Christ which marks the end of the world. Now notice what else it says in Luke 17 above:

.

“WHERE LORD?”

.

The disciples ask “where Lord”. Why are thy asking this? Do they need to know where the one left in the field is? No. They want to know where the one TAKEN has gone. And look at Jesus’ response … “Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.” … Now the word eagles in the original language can also mean VULTURES. And where do vultures gather? Where there is a DEAD BODY!

.

Job 39:27-30 …’Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place. From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off. Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.’

.

You see, the one taken is the lost and will be destroyed, and the one left behind will be saved, just like Noah was the one left behind and saved, while the wicked were TAKEN by the flood and destroyed. And contrary to belief, Lot was the one left behind and saved and the wicked in Sodom were “taken” and destroyed.

.

And we know this also because Jesus said that the angels will gather the wicked FIRST to be destroyed (Matthew 13:30)

.

The whole message of what Jesus was giving was for us to be watching and waiting for His return. His ONE AND ONLY return. So that we will not be “taken” by surprise and His second coming ends up being “like a thief” to us. And what does this false Jesuit teaching of the rapture and the left behind teaching do? It causes believers to “relax”, thinking that they will not go through the tribulation that is to come and maybe even get a second chance after the church is so called “raptured”. This is a teaching from the enemy friends and goes against the very teaching of Jesus that we need to be PREPARED, READY, WATCHING, WAITING for His return!

.

Luke 13:25 …’When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are.’”

.

Look you really cannot make a major doctrine on an isolated verse not can you change the meaning of a word from one verse to another and claim to be an honest Bible expositor.. you have to stay true to the word’s meaning in all of it’s contexts.
.
 
Mere men and not the Holy Spirit now are leading you away from the real Bible truths  into lies, distortions, falsehoods even the Dispensationalists. 
.
Dispensationalist eschatology is a new theology  not even  a part of Christianity even for 1800 years, was originally taught by a Plymouth Brethren evangelist named John Nelson Darby in the mid-1800’s and was popularized by the Scofield Study Bible, published initially in 1909.  Dispensationalism is a man made system of arbitrarily dividing up God’s dealings with man into certain time periods and it gained more popularity toward the end of the 20th century through popular money making books such as “The Late Great Planet Earth” and many others..
 .
The first Dispensation of the church age was a Dispensation of miracles. This first dispensation is when God gave supernatural attestation to the writing of the Scriptures. My jesuss still heals, delivers, perform Miracles today as Hebrews 13:8 says ” Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”  It is no wonder these lost supposedly  Christians persons do  oppose the gifts, working, and the person of the Holy Spirit even now as he does not go along with their lies..
 .
This dispensation ended with the closing of the canon of Scripture (with the book of Revelation) and the dying off of the initial apostles a fact that is a great untruth.. Jesus the Word still lives even till we see him face to face..  1 Corinthians 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
 .
The remainder of the church age consists of a downward spiral toward apostasy, also known as the great falling away. This down-hill spiral is reflected in seven phases of the church age, reflected by the letters to the seven types of churches written in Revelation 2-3, hypothesizing falsely that the final condition of the church will solely be characterized by the church in Laodicea which was described as “wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—“ Rev 3:17
 .
At the end of the church age, when the church is supposedly at it’s weakest point, the false church in fact only, an anti-christ ruler is going to surface who will try and turn being a Christian into a living hell. But supposedly  just before that, there will be a secret partial return of Christ where Christians disappear in an event dubbed “the Rapture”, although there realy isn’t anything in the Bible about a partial second coming. Many false doctrines are built on minor Bible references still here too.
 .
“The secret rapture doctrine takes several different forms. Some believe all Christians will disappear, while others believe only certain groups within the Body of Christ will go. One version is that the over-comers (those walking in victory at the moment of His return) will get rescued. Others believe it will only be those who are ready and expectant of His appearing, who will get to go.” But who really knows now?
 .
This event, triggers a 7 year dispensation called the “Great Tribulation” where evil totally triumphs in the earth.
 .
At the end of that time, Jesus returns again, along with the group He raptured, but this time sets up his throne in Jerusalem and inaugurates the dispensation of the rule of God on earth called the Kingdom age or the “millennium”. There is even a great controversy as to who actual even resides on earth during this period..
 .
Dispensational literalists say that the physical Jesus will be ruling the Jews, the whole world, out of His headquarters in Jerusalem, along with the rest of  all us immortalized Christians; but at the same time there will be also regular mortal humans on the earth. But everybody will be tame because the devil will be locked up during that whole time. Some also falsely do contend that the ancient mode of ceremonial temple worship will be re-implemented with red heifers and blood sacrifices being offered in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. This is Jewish fables..
 .
At the end of that era, the devil will be let out for one last final attempt at a coup before he is thrown into hell with all the people he sways in his last big hurrah along with the people who support him now too.
 .
At that point the final phase of Christ’s return will now  happen where all the dead are resurrected and all the nations and peoples (apart from the Christians) will be judged before the great white throne judgment of God. Judged for their rewards? Since all bad people automatically go to hell upon their death.. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
 .
Dispensationalist eschatology falsely   has produced a view that the reign of God and His glorious Kingdom is for some distant future 1000 years era instead of any present reality, how clearly demonic. This doctrine sabotages any real hope or expectation for renewal and revival. This errant theology   is  fatalistically glorifying mainly that devil and the “anti-christ” who is about to emerge in the earth and try and make them accept a tattoo or computer chip in order to buy and sell. It grants power to a devil who Scripture tells us has been stripped of all power and authority. (Luke 10:19; Col. 2:15) It has contributed to a fear that there is a vast and comprehensive world-wide conspiracy of evil all around us, poised and ready to take over the government, the economy, and even the apostate churches. It reduces the need to contemplate and to dwell on Christ.. 1 Corinthians 2::2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.  Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
.
The possibility of  personal salvation world wide is emphasized and thus the goal is to get everybody ‘saved”; while ignoring Christ’s actual commission in Mathew 28:18-20 to disciple nations and neglecting  the truth that the  Christian now has an ability live a full Holy Spirit filled, empowered Christian life..  as Jesus himself had said  in John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
.
A “Dispensationalist (hereafter termed “D.P.”) relies on one foundational tenet which I believe to be absolutely unscriptural; and that is that Christ’s teachings were and are only addressed to Israel after the flesh. According to D.P., Christ’s preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom was to herald an immediate setting up of His kingdom of glory, which the Jews rejected by crucifying Him. This resulted in a postponement of further preaching of Christ’s Gospel, which awaits a future time, when, after the church is raptured up, it will once again be held out to Israel.”
.
Their false doctrine of the separation of Israel and the Church, the foundation ofa  dispensationalist, can be clearly seen for what it is, false, by anyone who has a knowledgeable grasp of the New Testament. It is those persons ignorant of the scriptures, those persons not in their Bibles who are the ones so easily deceived by them still too.;
.
While the dispensationalists   even say they Believe the Bible is the Word of God, they too clearly do have this unholy, desperate and complicated need to reinterpret almost every passages of the Bible suitable to their own liking. You falsely have to go by, play by, live now by the new Brethren, man made rules, interpretations, standards and not God’s.;The more you dig in, the less it makes sense THUS. It offers a FALSE  hope of escape rather than the hope of victory in Jesus Christ.Dispensationalists, and the Brethren do now falsely deny the “second blessing” , a personal religious Holy Spirit experience after which the believer is set aside for, equipped by God for life;  they are dead now even on two accounts.. Denying the present role, works of the Holy Spirit, and their lack of personal good works by faith towards, or rather their unloving acts towards the others. The Brethren boasted, from their very beginning in the nineteenth century, that their teachings represented a wide departure from the doctrines of their predecessors and contemporaries. So it was not surprisingly the Brethren movement was both refuted and rejected rightfully now by the majority of professing real Christians even to date where the related dispensationalist rightfully is something to be avoided like the plague In reality, and undeniably those persons who do not go along with them, do not support them they the Brethren, even due to their own insecurities, do declare war against them, ostracize them, slander them, lie about them, divorce them too. All unacceptable and very ungodly, un Christ like , carnal behavior on their parts still too;
.  
“Jesus Christ came as the Son of Man (the Second Adam) to set up God’s Kingdom on the earth. The Biblical prophecies that Christ would reign as King were fulfilled in Christ’s enthronement at His ascension. Daniel’s prophecy of the Son of Man coming in the clouds was fulfilled at the ascension of Christ. The Kingdom was established during the first advent of Christ, (including the judgment of A.D. 70 and destruction of the temple) It is now in progress and will continue to increase until the end of the world.
 .
The Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21) is not about the second coming of Christ. It is a prophecy of the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70; Christ’s impending resurrection, ascension and enthronement; and the final days of temple worship and the end of the Mosaic covenant. Christ’s own words stated it would happen in their lifetime. (the preciseness and accurate, detailed fulfillment of Jesus’ words are documented by the then contemporary historian Josephus) Jesus clearly described what he called the “great tribulation”, as part of what would happen in their generation, but would never happen again. Jesus clearly and explicitly said it will not. Matt 24:21 “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be”. The “Great Tribulation” took place in the fall of Israel. It will not be repeated and thus is not a future event. (although Christians in every age have had to endure suffering for the faith)
 .

All of Christ’s enemies are gradually being subdued under His reign from heaven. He will remain in heaven until all enemies are defeated. The last enemy, death will be destroyed when he returns. (Acts 2:34-35)

  .

Jesus Christ will return on the Last Day, when the resurrection and the last judgment will take place. The “Rapture” (the translation/immortalization of all believers) and the Second Coming will occur together. There will be one resurrection of all men; the righteous will be raised unto everlasting life, and the wicked will be raised to eternal judgment.

 .

More specifically, through faith in Christ we have ALREADY passed from death into life; have ALREADY been healed by His stripes; have ALREADY been raised up with Him; and are ALREADY seated with Him in heavenly places. We ALREADY have dominion over sin, sickness and disease, and even nature itself, but must activate those things by faith. (Note Ephesians 2:4-7; Colossians 2:11-16)”

 .

Isaiah 9:6-7: “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder… Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

 .

It is not time to live in fear or some kind of fatalistic expectation of any of the darkness overtaking the light. Rather, it is time to recognize   2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

.

Dispensationalists seem to like to point out that we can predetermine future, present events by the parable of the FIG tree, the tree that is the symbol of the growth of the nation of Israel.. well to be consistent they need to deal with all of this now too..

.

“Matthew 21:18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.

Matthew 21:19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever.

.

The Pew Research Centre recently discovered that 60% of evangelicals said they supported the state of Israel,  and 32% cited their religious beliefs as the primary reason for such support. But does the Bible support the Sate of Israel existence today?  Discovering what the Bible actually, truly  now has to say about the relationship between Israel and the Church, in history and prophecy, more then just an academic exercise

 .

.Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do site that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in Scripture while there is no direct support of this in the New Testament Bible even still. Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. God still does not require the human input to fulfill his own prophecies. Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East. And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel. .John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.;Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judaizers and many others too. The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21:33-43) clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather.
.
Lost in one area the dispensationalists are also lost now in many other areas, such as their false concept of Zion, Zionism, Rapture too. I know that even demon inspired persons will next face negative consequences cause so I am in the right asking them next to repent of these their wrong doings undeniably too..
.
Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East. And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel. . John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.; Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judiazers and many others too.;
.
The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21: 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: 34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. 35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. 37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. 39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.;
.
This parable clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather.
 .
AS PER THE NEW TESTAMENT NOW the church is the true Israel and Christians are God’s true “Jews” today. “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God. ” (Romans 2:28-29)    “for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh, ” (Philippians 3:3)
Look at Jesus own actual reply to the Question he was asked Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? and his reply was Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. and Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.  Now Jesus and the New testament does not talk about a partial, or an eventual restoration of the Nation of Israel or the restoration of an earthly  Jersualem as God’s center.. but a total dispersion next of the Jews.. Luke 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?  http://www.lavistachurchofchrist.org/LVstudies/GospelAccounts/a47FallOfJerusalem.html
.
The signs of Matthew 24 prophecies the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD not the second coming and certainly not some “Rapture” theology that was invented in 1830 AD by the dispensationalist  John Darby. When Christians then saw the signs Jesus had sated , they fled the city and were saved.;
.
I believe the dispensational framework has been artificially imposed on the Scriptures creating divisions that are not there and ignoring those that are there.
  Judaism is a religious system. Israel is a sovereign nation. Zionism is a political system. These three are not synonymous.
.
While we all may respect freedom of religion,  Judaism, and do repudiate anti-Semitism, encourage interfaith dialogue and defend Israel’s right to exist within borders recognized by the international community and agreed with her neighbors  but with  many Jews even, I disagree with a political system which gives preference to expatriate Jews born elsewhere in the world, while denying the same rights to the Arab Palestinians born in the country itself. Jimmy Carter is not alone in describing the Zionism practiced by the present government of Israel as a form of apartheid.
.
In the eyes of God, who shows no partiality, both Israel and Palestinians are both equally guilty of murder… never mind the false justifications. Eye for an eye too Israel never satisfied till it has falsely possessed, stole back all of the once promised land. Israel clearly does not want to negotiate peace, it prefers more land conquest by wars…;
.
Replacement theology is for real.. AS RATHER NOW Judaism is dead to God now. The Jewish people will NOT finally have their place among the nations that God HAS NOT Intended in the Millennium. They will NOT Dwell in the Promised Land that God Gave Them. They lost all of their PROMISED land.. The Christians now posses it . New testament teaches THAT the people in the Millennium are all those people who had been killed by the antichrist. Better accept the Lord Jesus Christ now FOR TREAL or you too will go to hell with all the unsaved Jews.
 .
The Bible, New Testament, Jesus the apostles gives us clear warnings as to the characteristics of the type of persons who even go out of their way to betray Jesus Christ, including even Judas one of the 12 apostles, the religious Jews, legalists and Hypocrites, the Scribes and Pharisees such as Saul , as well as materialistic oriented persons, and sadly even the professing Christians like Apostle Peter. The betrayal of Jesus was wrongfully also next inflicted upon His Followers including more lies, slander, human rights violations, and it will go on today, unless someone opposes it, rightfully stands up against it.
 .

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5:22

When the alcoholics as well they cannot stay with the facts truths presented they rather falsely do have to go crazy on you personally instead They tend to imply the others the non alcoholics, are unspiritual, crazy cause they rather are so sensitive as to what you really are still firstly by their false diversionary personal attacks, approach? When you criticize or disagree openly some of these very bad evil persons one tends to get a false denial, a remark in response like you are crazy, you need professional help. They still really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable acts. These People in the state of false denials, clearly also who lie often, they do now also tend to have severe personal, mental disorders next even cause one tends to eventually believe next ones own lies as being the truth, and they can no no longer differentiate their own lies from reality, the truth. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? You cannot fool all the people all the time and now matter how smart you are there is still someone more wiser who can see the truth still too.. these bad, ignorant clearly unloving, Holy Spirit ignorant too persons they really should not even be on the net preaching to others till they get matured, wiser. Their Narcissistic, selfish, self centered Mental Disorders are too evident now even in these persons who falsely to dwell in self-absorption, fantasy, illusion, where she or he has exaggerated claims to talents, importance, or specialness, manifesting evidence of a need for constant admiration from others, a lack of empathy for all others, persistent in this too, have rigid personality traits and coping styles, clearly inflexible, do show a hypersensitivity to any criticism , defeat or negative realities thus they rather are pathological in denial by the their falsity, contrived replacement of the truths which they still must face eventually . These SEVERE PERSONALITY disorders are generally personally ongoing too even leading to more impaired social and/or occupational functioning and can make it difficult to pinpoint a clear dividing line between their pathology and their so called normality. Most of these people with their personality disorders may not perceive that there is anything wrong with their behavior and thus they are not motivated to change it. It is important to note that these personality disorders are considered to have their onset in late adolescence or early adulthood and they alone are responsible for it too. It is sad that there are so many childish, unloving, dogmatic, slanderous person, arrogant, even the pretend Christians who do falsely believe they are better than other persons now cause they have hold of one truth. Now if you do not agree with them, dare to oppose them in anyway they will go crazy on you, resort to a personal attack on you, calling you slanderous names, insulting you, falsely even trying to attack you as being immoral, demonic, an antichrist or what ever as they are in false denial to the real truth and why? their pride will not let them admit now that they have been deceivers and have been deceived.. Again false Denial, it is very very common when confronted with the truth the denier they often respond with a similar personal counter attack remark as ”you are crazy”. “I reject your reality… and substitute my own.” Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about themselves still though. Sadly it is a negative natural human tendency to devolve into denial.” It’s not just a moral compass that’s lacking, but the ability to honest, or to stand apart. Denial often comes out of a false pride, a fear of being openly exposed as being wrong. Denial is a false convenient escape, excuse for inaction for persons now facing a situation that requires a decision or action that conflicts with his or her established past policy. Denial too often can be further disastrous upon themselves and others.. for denial is not seeing data at all or seeing it and coming to an erroneous conclusion within oneself. One’s false denial is often based on a false assumption of one’s past great success and often precedes their own severe personal failure next due to a personal disconnect with real life.

Revelation 21 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful

 One of the most successful of Satan’s deceptions is the promulgation of the belief that he and his angels are not here on the earth, In Revelation 12:7-9 we read, “And there was war in heaven: Michael [Christ] and his angels fought against the dragon [Satan]; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 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.” Satan’s angels are the angels that he deceived into following him in his rebellion against God. Notice that Satan and his angels [devils] were not cast out of heaven to hell; they were cast out to the earth, which is where they are right now! Jesus says in Luke 10:18, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” 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.” Additional texts which show that Satan resides on the earth are found in the book of Job. The story of the Garden of Eden is given in Genesis 2:8 through 3:24. There are only four persons mentioned: God, Adam, Eve, and the devil, Satan, who masqueraded as a serpent. Then, after Adam and Eve had been expelled, God stationed angels to guard the garden.  “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created. . . .” God therefore certainly did not create the devil, but He did create the perfect, holy angel who later became the devil. When God created beings with free will, He knew that sooner or later one of them would begin to experience pride and selfish ambition just as Satan did. If Satan had not been created, the experience that happened to him would have happened to another angel. Why God created beings with free will, beings who can disobey if they choose, The devil still walks on earth and reports to God.  Job 1:7 says, “And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”  Genesis 1:31 tells us that “God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” Everything was in perfect harmony with everything else. None of God’s creatures ever hurt another or made another unhappy. Where, then, did these obnoxious things come from? Where do the diseases from which mankind suffers come from? Why do animals and human beings hurt and kill one another now when they did not do this originally? Why does the lion eat other animals now instead of straw like the ox, as it did before? Consider the experience of the apostle Paul. A dedicated soldier of truth for the Lord and writer of many of the books of the New Testament, Paul had a physical infirmity. In 2 Corinthians 12:7, he tells us where his infirmity came from. “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.” Paul says that his problem was from Satan. He also says that he was given the problem so that he would not become proud because of the abundance of God’s revelations to him. God revealed to Paul the whole truth concerning Satan’s rebellion, and it is easy to see that this privilege might have tended to make Paul proud. You see, God did not afflict Paul, but He allowed Satan to do so. Another text that shows that the devil is the cause of pain and suffering is Luke 13:11. “And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.” Here a woman is described who was paralyzed in a bowed-together position, probably with arthritis, for eighteen years. Did God do this to that poor woman and make her suffer for eighteen years? Of course not. God is the ultimate of love and kindness. In Luke 13:16, Jesus explains who did do this to the woman. “And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?” You see, Satan afflicted this woman just as he afflicted Paul and just as he causes sickness and suffering in our world today. Satan is the one who causes all disease and suffering in our world.  The only hope we have of penetrating this wall of lies and deception which Satan has built around us is in the whole Bible,  the New Testament included, the standard for truth in our world. Remember that God cannot lie. (Titus 1:2). First Peter 5:8 tells us to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” We get a further understanding of the extent of our deception in 2 Corinthians 4:4, which explains that Satan “hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Proverbs 16:25 tells us that “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” First Corinthians 2:14 says, “The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him.” In Matthew 24:24 Jesus Himself warns that “There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” 2 Corinthians 11:14,15. “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

WE ALL HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH

WOE
 
.
WE ALL HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH EVEN IF THE BAD GUYS STILL DO NOT LIKE IT
.
I still cannot help but notice that a certain segment of every society, bad self-righteous persons who to compensate for their poor self image, poor self worth, or even an over inflated ego, self worth they in a sinful pride too they do try to put others under their sinful bondage, even to still wrongfully deny their human rights and their equal rights of free speech, to equally express themselves, to be equally heard too..
.
  AND WHEN YOU DO NOT DO WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO THESE SAME RATHER LITTLE BAD CHILDREN INSULT YOU, SLANDER YOU, DIVORCE YOU, OSTRACIZE YOU, BAD MOUTH YOU. THE BIBLE ALSO GIVES US PLENTY OF EXAMPLES OF PERSONS WHO WERE TOO QUICK TO SPEAK AGAINST OTHERS.. SADLY YES AS SOON AS I TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH SOME OF THE DEVIL’S CLEARLY IGNORANT FOLLOWERS WILL SLANDER ME PERSONALLY, BASH ME, CALL ME EVEN A HERETIC AND WILL STILL NOT STUDY THE BIBLE, FACTS TO SEE IF WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN IS TRUE.. SAD it comes to pass to that.
.
Attack you falsely by making a personal attack cause you cannot deal with the facts and truths I mentioned ehh.. still trying to tell others what they can do when they  are still lost When the bad guys now next generally in a state of denial, shock at the public exposure of their wrong doings cannot face the truth now they next do try to resort to false suppression, or false personal attacks on the author, all showing still their own incomplete repentance, and their false reactions. These bad CONTROL FREAKS WHO TRY TO ENSLAVE, DOMINATE OTHERS ARE SICK PEOPLE NEEDING still PROFESSIONAL HELP IN REALITY..

We also do all know that most persons still tend to take an ostrich denial approach to their own faults, shortcomings still and thus hasten their own downfall as a result too. By their false denials Who is fooling whom? I am not being fooled here.. When you criticize openly the bad persons , mostly you tend to get a false denial, remark in response like you are crazy, . They still really cannot face the reality there are things in their life that need serious, drastic changes. These people in denial are the ones who often need professional help for their own short comings, sickness. Their false denial, diversion, distortion does not change the negative reality about their own unacceptable views, acts. Even crooked Pontius Pilate and the Pharisees denied the truth..
.
Many false professing Christian persons see themselves as teachers, facilitators, coordinators, leaders, when in fact they are still just dictators, bullies, some even immoral aggressive jungle fighters, control freaks who need to repent.. Not surprisingly many prideful people try to take the place of God in my life too, AND these imposters claim even that they have been chosen, designated by God to command over me, THAT I am required into forced submission to their whims, desires , commands. But funny God now himself has not revealed those facts as well to me BUT only to them. I put my trust in God and not in man..
.
Me I am still always rightfully actively resistant to all of the abusers, bullies, liars, even in the Church, GOVERNMENTS, CORPORATIONS, POLICE and their oppressions. etc., still too, for all it takes for evil to prosper is for good people to do nothing about it. So should we all!
.
Yes  had really surprised me most of all besides how they the Dispensationalist and the Plymouth Brethren do falsely  abuse others is as to how many Brethren preachers actually lie, practice deceit,  and it is so easy to find it too, when you look for it, and do start to verify everything they say, write  too to determine now whether what was said it is so, true or false , even as per the Bible.  .
.

Lost in one area the dispensationalists are also lost now in many other areas, such as their false concept of Zion, Zionism, Rapture too.

.
ames Barr states: But whatever may be said about its creativity, when it is considered as a statement of Christian truth…it can scarcely be doubted that dispensational doctrine is heretical and should be counted as such, if the term ‘heresy’ is to have any meaning. If dispensationalism is not heresy, then nothing is heresy (Ibid., p.588).
.
Of the Scofield Reference Bible, John Wick Bowman says, “This book represents the most dangerous heresy currently to be found within Christian circles” (Ibid., p.588).  
.
 John H. Gerstner, in his 1991 book, Wrongly Dividing the Word of Truth: A Critique of Dispensationalism, states emphatically and without mincing words:
.
What is indisputably, absolutely, and uncompromisingly essential to the Christian religion is its doctrine of salvation….If Dispensationalism has actually departed from the only way of salvation which the Christian religion teaches, then we must say that it has departed from Christianity. No matter how many other important truths it proclaims, it cannot be called Christian if it empties Christianity of its essential message. We define a cult as a religion which claims to be Christian while emptying Christianity of that which is essential to it. If Dispensationalism does this, then Dispensationalism is a cult and not a branch of the Christian church. It is as serious as that. It is impossible to exaggerate the gravity of the situation (p.150).
.
Ernest Reisinger states in his article, “A History of Dispensationalism in America”:  All honest Dispensationalists would agree that the Dispensational system of theology has a different view of the grace of God, the law of God, the church of God, the interpretation of the Word of God and the salvation of God. That is, its teachings are different from tested, respected historic creeds and confessions …. Dispensationalism has a different view of living the Christian life of sanctification and, more specifically, how justification and sanctification are inseparably joined together in the application of God’s salvation (p.3).
.
When a Brethren preacher is even trying to justify the Brethren belief and puts something ridiculous like this in writing.. “Most Conservative scholars agree with him”.. the term “Most conservative scholars” means nothing, that is so vague of a useless, false  generalization now still too, and in reality most of them do not agree even with each other to start off, dispensationalist ones included.. for not only do they   rather rarely agree or  have the same views, beliefs on dispensationalist, the whole Bible too but in fact since the early days the Brethren undeniably have often had church fights, splits not just over dispensational points, but over now many other issues too. The only thing we can agree in unity, harmony  is that they often do seriously disagree with each other, others too.
.
Or when the Brethren preacher continues  the Brethren deceits,  distortions by saying.. the Brethren believe only in 5 in simple doctrines, and firstly what did he fall out of a tree and damage his brains? By their own admissions often it seems you need many many commentaries, dictionaries, books, knowledge of the Greek, theological degrees, and loads and loads of explanations.. to try to basically, simply grasp what Dispensationalist means and next also what their version of Prophecy   means .. and loads of work even now to try to grasp if Brethrenism  itself is even at all Biblical now too. Thier beliefs now are Plain and Simple? never, not by a long shot.
.
 Like Jesus said the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and you will know the truth and it will set you free
.
NOW LET’S GET  BACK TO THE FACTS THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS GIFTS NOW TOO ARE IS REAL, ARE ALL SUBSEQUENT TO ONE’S SALVATION AND IS SEPARATE FROM THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, SALVATION IN JESUS CHRIST

Ecclesiastes 2:1 I said in mine heart, Go to now, I will prove thee with mirth, therefore enjoy pleasure: and, behold, this also is vanity.

11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.

15 Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.

17 Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

19 And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.

21 For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.

23 For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.

26 For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 4 4 Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

7 Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.

8 There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.

16 There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

Ecclesiastes 6 2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.

4 For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.

9 Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

11 Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?

Ecclesiastes 7”6 For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool: this also is vanity.

15 All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.

Ecclesiastes 8:10 And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.

14 There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 11 8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 7”7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Any Christian Ministry is not a business transaction  but solely a free service to God.. as we freely receive from God so we freely give back to God.. as we serve God by faith we can count on God to supply all, note all of our needs, he knows beforehand too what they are.. Unfortunately and falsely in real life this is not so, too many demonic hirelings use the Gospel to further their own personal ends, filthy lucre under the guise they are serving the lord, solicit, demand, beg, coerce others into giving.

1 Corinthians 6: 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

1 Peter 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

John 5:44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
