This post is a reminder of an earlier posting: The fulfillment of a prophecy
Are we heading for a new world war and the beginning of a great time of sorrows?
The coalition of France, Great Britain and USA has attacked targets in Syria (April 2018).
Russia is condemning these attacks.
The conflict as of today in Syria have been ongoing for 7 years (started March 2011) – The Syrian civil war
Let me also remind you of Albert Pike’s forecast of three big wars, where the last world war would be between the muslim world and the political Zionists.
Matthew 24:6-8 (NKJV)
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. “All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.
Time is short. So what do you give yourself into, how do you spend your days and evenings?
What is on my mind is the Sanctification process, how we choose to respond to the Holy Spirit.
Christ gave us a sensitive conscience.
We can’t afford to be intoxicated; having a mind being defiled, tossed back and forth, double minded, numb, like I don’t care.
That’s a harlots forehead, when we lack sensitivity, and have an appetite for selfish indulgence, pleasure and gain.
With no respect for sacred spiritual things.
If we have a slackness, we are not ready to meet the King!
Self intoxication is when we bless our own heart and go our own ways.
It’s a selfish narcissistic gratification, when we persue things with narrow thunnel vision.
It’s like pushing ourself through the bushes of thorns and thistles, not listening to the Shepard.
In the desert, in the open fields, the shepherds mades fences for protection for the animal herds. The only thing that was available was thorns and thistles which they formed into a circular fence – a crown of thistles.
This fence represents the Law and the thorns represent sins)
If we disobey and continue to overstep the Law of protection, it’s like when a thick headed goat breaks through the fence of protection and become prey to the outside wild animals (demons and Satan) and his own destruction.
Our foreheads becomes thick, hard, numb like a goat, when we don’t listen to the Holy Spirit and our conscience.
Because we literally push the limits, the barriers of the Law (crown of thorns, the circle of fences against predators in the desert; Sinai.
Listening and obeying is to fulfill the Law. Or we become Transgressors, subjects of the accusations from Satan, the Accuser and Prosecutor.

“Why is that the Swedish society, to an increasing extent for each year, makes us believe in science, and to become critical of God’s existence, not to refer to God in our everyday choices and actions?
Many of us are members of the Swedish State Church (Svenska Kyrkan) of old habits, many of us celebrate Christian (pagan) festivals and like to attend to the transitions of life and in churches (baby baptism, weddings, funerals), but few want to blend God into it all.
Very few agrees that Jesus is the son of God, that God created man and the world or thinks the Bible is a sacred scripture.”
”Hur det kommer sig att det svenska samhället i allt högre utsträckning för varje år fostrar oss till att bli vetenskapstroende, till att bli kritiska till Guds existens, till att inte referera till Gud i sina val och handlingar.
Många av oss är medlemmar i svenska kyrkan av gammal vana, många av oss firar kristna högtider och gillar att uppmärksamma livets övergångar och i kyrkor, men allt färre vill blanda in Gud i det hela.
Ännu färre går med på att Jesus är Guds son, att Gud skapade människan och världen eller tycker att bibeln är en helig skrift.”

How do you get fit for Heaven?
First of all, you need the righteousness of another person which is JESUS CHRIST. You will not stand on That Day when Jesus returns, on your own merits or on your own self proclaimed righteousness. You need to obtain the right standing with God.
You need Jesus, and His washing away of sins with His sacrificial Blood on the Cross. The life is in the blood. That’s why Jesus laid down His life for you, so His Life could redeem you, to pay you back from a certain death and destruction, into a relationship and eternal life.
Don’t look at me – look at who I am in Christ and who Christ is in me.
That is what you should be saying on the Day of Judgement when the Book of Life is opened, revealing your whole life and track record.
In an instance everything is revealed about you, for every one to see. That is the Day described in the book of Daniel, where the ungodly is put to open shame.
“And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.” Daniel 12:2
Our Lord in Heaven can give you an imputed righteousness.
He will, when you have faith in Jesus, which is the only requirement, put (impute) Jesus sin free and faultless track record (while He was on Earth), into you. That is also called justified by faith – just as if you never sinned!
How is Abraham able to speak to the rich man in hell if there is a chasm between them? (See the chapter of Luke 16 below)
And Abraham is speaking with Lazarus who is in hell/Hades?
Is there really such a place in the underground where God torment ungodly people day and night?
Or is it a man made belief, originated by people who want to put Satan’s evil character upon our Heavenly Father?
How is this conversation in Luke 16 even possible since we have a great chasm between us?
Does God give efficacious grace for us to speak to people in hell? I don’t think so because than we would be sad and miserable.
So why does Abraham speak to someone in Hades? Continue reading “Where there is Hope – there is Life”
And the Seed is the Word of God.
Especially the first fruits of the season is a promise that there will be more, there will be an positive outcome.
That’s why there is such a joy and comfort to have a first son, because it means the husband and wife are fruitful.
Or when you get a baby lamb, or when the tree get flowers for the first time, that’s a promise of fruits to come.
The seed is something you plant in the ground, in the soil. Something which looks dead gets alive with water, which brings life.
Wheats coming up from the ground are symbols of growth; maturity.
Where Are Your Sins?
A Question about Absolutionby J. C. Ryle
“Make me to know my transgression and my sin.”—Job 13:22
“Cleanse me from my sin.”—Psalm 51:2
“The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin.”—1 John 1:7
“Christ Jesus, whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation, through faith in His blood.”—Romans 3:25
First published by Drummond’s Tract Depot, Stirling, Scotland
The question which forms the title of this tract ought to stir up many thoughts in your heart. It concerns every man and woman born into the world. You ought never to rest till you can give it a satisfactory answer.—“WHERE ARE YOUR SINS?”
I ask you this day to look this question in the face. I ask you to give me your attention for a few minutes, while I try to enforce it on your conscience. A time draws nigh when the question must be answered. The hour cometh when all other questions shall seem like a drop of water in comparison with this. We shall not say, “Where is my money?”—or, “Where are my lands?”—or, “Where is my property?” Our only thought will be, “My sins! my sins!—Where are my sins?” Continue reading “Where are your sins – J C Ryle”
Matthew 17:24-27 (NKJV)
When they had come to Capernaum, those who received the [temple] tax came to Peter and said, “Does your Teacher not pay the [temple] tax?”
He said, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers?”
Peter said to Him, “From strangers.” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free.
“Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.”
The story from Matthew regarding the temple tax (beca) and the silver coin (stater) has a deeper Hebrew meaning. Continue reading “God is sufficient – His mercy covers you”
