The Ultimate Dooms Day Prepper – The One Thing You Need to Know to Be Victorious Through the Great Tribulation

Revelation 12:11 (NKJV)

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

I personally enjoy the study of Biblical end times prophecy.

The book of Revelation is the only book that states that the reader WILL be blessed in reading it.

But I’m also aware that the subject engenders fear in many.

If that wasn’t bad enough, most would agree that the Biblical prophecies and visions are hard to understand.

Nobody wants to live in fear of those days as they approach or as they unfold.

That is why I am eager to share this most remarkable truth.

If you only understand and believe one thing from the book of Revelation,make it this truth from chapter 12 and verse 11 that one thing. I also believe that if you miss this one truth, even if you understand everything else this book is about, you miss everything.

The book of Revelation from the Bible is the End Times, Last Days book that tells the prophecy about all the events leading up to the Battle of Armageddon and Christ’s Return, the millennium, and the Great White Throne of Judgment.

What is the secret clearly revealed to us?

It comes in three closely related aspects, the central of which is belief in Jesus Christ as savior.

First – “They overcame him,(satan),by the Blood of The Lamb”…

Those who have asked Christ and believed have Christ IN them.

Jesus said,”Greater is he who is IN you than he,(satan),that is in the world.”

The gospel of John 3:16 reads,”For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Jesus is “The Lamb of God”,who died to pay for our sins, who rose in victory from the grave, and gives eternal life to all who ask by faith. He will hear your prayer today.

Second- “and by the word of their testimony”,…

Those who have trusted Jesus Christ as savior refuse to deny Him, no matter what happens.

Jesus said,“Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God. But he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.”(Luke 12:8,9)

For love,Jesus suffered openly for us to save us. We can honor Him as servants who are not above our Master.

Thirdly- “they did not love their lives to the death.”

The only way I see anyone having enough courage to remain unmoved from our testimony for Jesus in the face us death, is to love Jesus more than life itself.This is what He did for us on the cross.

King David said of God, “Your loving-kindness is better than life.”

Here’s the coolest thing about Revelation 12:11,… Since it is a prophecy it hasn’t happened yet.

Since it hasn’t happened yet, we can choose whether or not WE are the ones it prophesies about.

Remember,we can overcome by the Blood of The lamb.

It’s our choice.

Just ask Him to save you, and you have the most important thing to face anything that life could throw at you. And nothing or nobody will ever be able to take eternal life or Christ from you.

All because He first loved us,

May God richly bless you!

Watch!

Jesus said-

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. It  is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning—  And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”  (Mark 13:32-37)

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Seek Him while He may be found.

Ask Him to save you and He will put His Holy Spirit in your heart forever, and save you from Hell to live with Him forever.

Simply say,”Jesus save me and be my Lord Savior.”

If you did that,..I’ll see you in Heaven.

The Mayan Apocalypse Will Not Occur – But Bible Prophecy Will – Dates Withholding

MayanCalendar

The Mayan Apocalypse will not be happening on December 21.

I don’t want to make light of what has become a major concern for many, so don’t misinterpret my condensed and direct tone concerning this issue.

I’ve not written on this subject before, but recent events have convinced me it may be a good time to do so.

A side story to the Sandy Hook killings is that the mother of the killer was preoccupied with what has become known as ,”dooms day prepping.”

My main goal is to write to make Christ known.

End times or its formal name,eschatology, is demanding and super involved, and the bottom line in life is, Do you know Jesus as your Savior?

“neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:39)

So if you have a comment ,critique or a question about anything written on this subject, let me know and I’ll try to get you a reply.

If I put everything into this post I would have a book instead of blog, so even Bible references are withheld unless you request them.

Why I am saying that the Mayan Apocalypse will not be happening on December 21?

According to Biblical prophecy,and my understanding of Biblical eschatology,  the world will endure at least another 1,000 years before God transforms it and the City of Heaven comes down to Earth.

This is also called the end of the age and the beginning of eternity with God for those who have trusted Christ as their Lord and Savior.

A Little Background First, for those of us who are only now becoming acquainted with this subject of end times eschatology.

Most of my reformed theology friends call this ,”Dispensationalism,” and discount it out of hand.

Incidentally, I have never met one reformed theologian who also had a well-informed eschatology.

The most common reformed eschatology is that Christians will bring about the,”Kingdom Age”, through winning everybody to Christ.

The only problem with that eschatology is that it is based on only a few passages and has to omit and ignore many passages that don’t fit it.

In the words of one well-respected Presbyterian pastor,“Most reformers don’t have a well-developed eschatology because Calvin never wrote a commentary on the book of Revelation from the Bible. Calvin didn’t understand the Book of Revelation.” (That is the main prophetic book in the Bible that foretells times yet to come and the end of the age, also called prophecy).

Some have said that if anyone tells you they understand the book of Revelation they are either fools or liars.

I think that’s a cop-out for those who either follow Calvin and their fellow reformers without question, or are too afraid of the subject to study it.

I’ve seen equal amounts of both.

Problem is, a lot of people are thinking about what may or may not happen concerning the end of the age , but almost nobody is telling people what they need to hear.

That is, except for a few guys who just seem to want to fleece the flock, like Harold Camping did.

Granted, some end times ,”experts,” have made fools of themselves and those that followed them.

Anytime a teacher of the Bible talks more about anything other than Jesus, even if they talk more about Christ’s return more than they talk about Christ, we should be skeptical.

The bottom line in all that involves all of life, death, and eternity is if you have Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, NOTHING can ever separate you from God.

So how can I know from the Bible that the Mayan apocalypse will not happen?

Firstly, the Great 7 year Tribulation has not begun yet, and it does not get really bad until about half way ,or 3 1/2 years from its beginning.

The signal of the beginning of the Great Tribulation is when a world leader mediates a 7 year treaty between Israel and her enemies.

That hasn’t happened yet either. (All though things do seem to be getting worse in the Middle East, setting the stage for this important end times event).

This mediator will also become the one world leader who becomes possessed by the devil 3 1/2 years into that treaty.

Then all hell breaks loose.

They will call him ,”The Beast”, because he will first try to win over all religions into one, and then he will decide he wants to be worshipped.

Because of this, he will persecute all religions who do not worship him.

I also firmly believe that all true believers will be removed from this world before judgement is allowed to be unleashed on it. (The pre-tribulation rapture).

 So enjoy Christmas on the 25th, because December 21st will come and go, and so will all the other dates that are associated with the Mayan calendar for that matter.

The only warning I will give is the same one Christians have been giving all along.

The times will get dark, but agin,the only prepping that will ultimately matter is ,Do you know Jesus as Savior?

Don’t wait until the night comes to trust  ,”The Light of The World,” who is Jesus Christ.

He died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead to show He has power over life and death and has power to give life to any who will place their trust in Him.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

 Seek him while it is day.

Looper’s Offering of Hope – An Evolutionary Child Messiah

 

 

I love Science Fiction movies. On that note, Looper delivers. And considering the Hollywood shoe string budget of 30 million bucks, I would say they should net a nice return too. I was surprised by the all too realistic take on a future that lacks hope. Everything is in ruin and the bad guys rule. There are no good guys. Just bad and worse guys.

 

In Looper time ,2044, we hear about a guy in the future who takes over everything and does so all by himself. He’s a really bad guy. The kind with super powers. Tele-kinetic powers…. And like X-men, it seems to have just happened by apparent evolutionary processes.

 

Yes, this film has some flesh and lots of violence and post modernistic evolutionary worldveiw. I can’t recommend it. I retrospect, Looper has more worth to me as a study in current worldview than entertainment. I felt a strong sense of hopelessness in the end.

 

And thats the thing. We are hope based creatures. We want to believe the future holds more promise than is portrayed in Looper.

 

The only hope in Looper comes in a form of a child who may be the one who saves the world IF he turns out better in the alternate future than he did in the original future. Like a super human ultimate good guy hero that squashes all the bad guys and makes the world a Heaven on Earth for even the least of us. (Sounds just like Jesus from the prophetic book of Revelation in the Bible,…the book that foretells the ACTUAL future).

 

But Looper leaves you guessing if the kiddo/Messiah will turn out right, since he has already killed an aunt when he was only an infant.

 

In summary- Looper is stark and believable in regards to the kind of future we can expect without a Savior.

 

                         – Looper portrays a society that needs to be saved from it’s own negative proclivities,…a society that needs to be saved from SELF.

 

                         — Jesus is the real life super human man God ,…but He never killed anyone…in fact Jesus laid down His life freely as an offering for our sin.

 

We keep telling the same story over and over again with the same basic character elements….

 

That should tell us something…..

 

We are made in His image. We need Jesus.

 

 “For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” (Colossians 1:19,20)

 

 

Implosion – By Joel Rosenberg – Why Christians Should Buy His Book And Join The Discussion

This is not a book review as I have not read the book, but everyone should remember Joel Rosenberg from his book that accurately foretold a possible use of highjacked airliners to carry out an attack on America that would later come to reality and be remembered as 9/11.

Rosenberg’s uncanny ability to see the future is only matched by his courage to admit that the unthinkable could become reality.

Right now, a number of alarmingly negative conditions are present in our nation and culture that could easily be our downfall and taken together, make that an almost certain outcome.

Being a Messianic Jew, Rosenberg does include the state of the Church in America and the moral conditions of our culture as a part of is new book.

If you have read Christ Centered Teaching at all, you know how passionate this I am for the health, wellbeing, and future growth of Christ’s Body, the Church.

I recommend we all read Joel Rosenberg’s book, and please join me in praying for revival. Rosenberg has devoted part of this nook to the possibility of a ,Third Threat Awakening”, for the Christian Church.

Finally, part of ,”Implosion”, is devoted to a stern warning for America in regards to Israel.

The promise God made to Abraham as the father of Israel and the father of all who embrace the righteousness that only comes by faith in Christ,and is as eternal and unchanging as God Himself.

The promise is,”I will curse those who curse you and bless those who bless you.”

I Strongly urge all Christians to consider as to which side of this issue they will stand, and stand with God.

Dear friends, know this,
That even being on the minority side of an issue with man is to you an advantage if you stand on God’s side.

All the world is His and everything in it, and all who dwell in it, for He made it all.
And all will one day give an account to Him.

Choose Christ.

“For God so loved the world that He have His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not Parrish, but have a eternal life.”(John 3:16)

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

“White House spokesman Jay Carney refused to state the U.S. position on the location of Israel’s capital during a press briefing, Thursday, despite several requests for clarification from a pair of reporters,” reported the Times of Israel. “The exchange, caught on video and uploaded to YouTube, quickly made the cyberspace rounds as the latest example of world bodies’ refusal to name Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” Click here to see the video. Just to be clear, Jerusalem — not Tel Aviv or any other city — is the eternal capital of Israel and the Jewish people. “I have chosen Jerusalem for my Name to be there, and I have chosen David to rule my people Israel,” declares the Lord God Almighty (2 Chronicles 6:6). “He has founded his city on the holy mountain. The Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob.” (Psalm 87:1-2) “Jerusalem, the city which the Lord has…

Final Events – The Signing of a Treaty With Israel Reveals The “Beast” and Day One of the Great Tribulation

 “because they did not receive the love of the truth”

 “Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that  Day  will  not  come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

 “Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

And then the lawless one will be revealed,

whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

The coming of the lawless  one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

(II Thessalonians 2:1-12)

Fill Your Lamp With Oil – Before Darkness Falls

“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3)

(The oil mentioned in this parable is God’s Spirit, the source of the all hope, the light of the soul.)

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

  “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.  Five of them were foolish and five were wise.  The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them.  The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.  The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

    “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’

   “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps.  The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’

   “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’

   “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

    “Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’

    “But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’

    “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

John 1:4
In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
