How do we know the end of this system is near and why should we be happy?

How to use.

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am a lousy editor.

It has become clear we are living in the time of judgment but we should have no fear these are happy times. The time for restoration is near and many will not experience death at all but will walk through the great tribulation into the new system. I am going to discuss why and how this will occur. I am also going to discuss why God is not cruel concerning these matters. These are happy times it means the end of all the bad will be near and the new system will be here soon. We only have to endure a little longer. The promises and the hope they have given us are at hand. We need to stand up now and have courage. Thing will get much worse but we have to keep in mind this is temporary and the things in the new system are forever. So there will be no more suffering, tear, sorrow or pain.

The bible tells us God will judge the nations. Many will be destroyed in this time of judgment. Many are in fear of that judgment and some do not believe it will occur. Some believe it only means we should flee false worship but Jesus clearly said some would not escape and would be imprisoned and killed. So it would have to mean we need to flee for our own safety. Many will follow misleading teaching and be swept away with the others who did not worship in truth and have a complete heart with God. We need to ask how can I avoid the destruction that will occur so I can live forever. We know the time for the destruction of the wicked is very very near because the message of the kingdom has reached all the earth and it is one of the final prophecies to be fulfilled. So the end is very very near. Now more then ever we need to prepare. There are signs Jesus told us to look for. Naysayers will claim these things have always occurred. What we need to consider is when Jesus was saying these things would occur he meant on a scale they have never occurred before. We are seeing pestilence severely plaguing the earth, children are starving to death world wide even in some of the wealthiest nations in the world there are people starving to death. There are many homeless world wide. Some of the wealthiest nations in the world have some of the highest rates of homelessness. Violence, and wars are occurring on a scale like never before. Death is so rampant that often times grand parents are left to raise their grand children because their parents have died. We have polluted the earth with toxins so severely that some food is no longer safe to consume. Many species of animals, and insects have become extinct. Because of the over use of farm chemicals and other toxins many species of pollinating insects are now near extinction bringing our food supply very near collapse. Earthquakes occur so frequently now that when it is on the news hardly anyone even takes note of it. These things are already occurring on a scale they have never occurred before indicating we are very very near the end of this system. The is not gloomy news though. It is why God had the good news of the kingdom told throughout the earth to give us hope. To reassure us that things will be better very very soon. The earth will be restored and the original purpose for the earth will be fulfilled.

Jesus constantly stressed the importance of staying alert. To always be prepared. Many will not believe it is almost time to flee. They will believe God’s great day is far off and will not escape. Jesus gave us all the signs to look for. We know the disgusting thing is the beast mentioned in the bible and it’s allies. When the beast replaces God and bans worship of the one true God and we are required to submit to it’s authority it is time to flee. We seen with the recent pandemic the beast starting to exert it’s authority world wide. It this time they will also start declaring there is going to be peace and security. It is using peoples fears to get them to submit to it’s authority on a world wide scale and it will soon try to completely replace God as the rightful ruler over the earth. The beast will offer people a false sense of peace and security and make promises it cannot fulfill fooling those who do not know their bibles well into bowing down to it. Those who do not flee will be forced to bow to the beast. Some we love will lack the faith to listen to Jesus warnings and carry on like these things are not occurring. When the time comes for us to flee we cannot leave the fact ones we love very much stayed behind and did not heed the warnings. We have to remember judgment will be on a world wide scale. We cannot look back when it is time to flee like Lot’s wife did. We cannot have doubts of the things Jesus told us to do in order to prepare. When it is time to flee if we have doubts it shows we lack trust and faith in what he has told us and in what he will do. Those who do not flee will be destroyed because we have to remember those without faith will also be destroyed. We need to prepare our hearts now because there are some who seem to have a lot of faith but they will not heed the warnings and will not be prepared. We need to pray for their eyes to be open but also prepare for if their eyes are not opened and not let it hinder us if they choose not to believe Jesus warning when the time comes.

The bible tells us there are many who will survive this great tribulation. In times past when God judged nations those who remained faithful and loyal to him had to flee. Those who lacked the faith and loyalty will be judged with the nations. If they lack the faith to heed Jesus warnings it means they do not trust him or believe the words he has given us. No matter how much we may care for someone when it is time to flee we cannot look back. We cannot let anything we left behind slow our escape. The judgment is going to happen on a world wide scale. We are warned there will be a tribulation like there has never been before. So if we have to flee we have to keep in mind we will have to endure hard times for a short period of time no matter what. Wouldn’t it be better to flee as a righteous person rather then lacking faith and lagging behind and suffering as an unrighteous because we either did not have faith in the things Jesus has warned us of or we did not have the courage to act on the things we have been told?

These things must occur. If God tolerated a lack of faith, a lack of trust in his word, in him or his son Jesus Christ then man would continue to be in a spiritual state of decline. We must trust , love and believe God and his son our king Jesus with our whole hearts, our whole minds and our whole soul. Man has put their faith in themselves and we are seeing the end results. We need to let God guide all we do, keeping in mind that what we endure will be will worth it because there will be no more suffering, illness, death , pain or tears of sorrow. There will be a peaceful , new paradise earth. We do not have to have fear if we are imprisoned before we can flee because Jesus assured us that it is his fathers will for us to be resurrected and those who are righteous will not experience the second death experienced by Satan, the demons and humans who chose to oppose God will experience.

Some do not believe this destruction will not come and all this destruction is a figurative destruction. I will not get into detail on why it will be a literal destruction but we have examples in the bible of times past when God physically destroyed the wicked. This will occur on a world wide scale and it will never occur like this again because this time in the second death Satan and the demons will also be destroyed and will not be able to corrupt man again. Some think this is cruel or mean. We have to keep in mind God’s thoughts are much higher then our thoughts are. We are imperfect humans. If you had a child who was constantly being stolen from, constantly being beat up, and your children were constantly being murdered would you not want to do away with the one causing the harm? God has given man more then enough time to change. He has had his messengers warning people. As in times past they are paying no attention to the warnings and even saying it will not happen in our time. God’s thought are much higher then our thoughts. We should not question him. His sense of justice is perfect and he knows what is needed in order to restore peace and security on the earth. Man has had more then enough time to show we cannot do it without God. We have fought wars in trying to bring peace, there are many charitable organizations and till homelessness and starvation are rampant on the earth. We have progressed scientifically and it has only caused chronic illness and disease to get worse. It has become clear man cannot guide our own steps. Wouldn’t it be cruel for God to leave this error of man continue? Look at the harm we have done even in times with good intentions. We lack the foresight and wisdom that God has , it has become very clear man does not have what it takes to rule and guide ourselves. Some believe God is cruel for waiting so long. We have to keep in mind he desires none to be destroyed and is giving people a chance to repent.

Jehovah God has demonstrated his love , patience and mercy many times in the past. He has been very patient and merciful to the point he does not punish us for all sins we commit. If it was only our sins he looked at no one would be able to stand. If we are repentant and continue to grow in taking in knowledge of him and his only begotten son Jesus he is happy to be forgiving and merciful. God desires none to be destroyed. Sadly we know few will follow Jesus and few will enter in through the narrow gate. The destruction that will come on them is their choice for not trusting God and heeding his warnings. Death is God’s enemy and he finds no joy in it. It is why that will be the final enemy to be destroyed. Many will be professing to do things in Jesus name but few will truly follow in his foot steps, the bible tells us Jesus will say to them I do not know you. So it is very important for us to know what God requires, have complete faith in God and Jesus Christ our king. Now is not the time to shrink back in fear because the time of restoration is very very near and it could determine whether we live or die. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. He would desire all to repent and have faith in him but not all will choose to be loyal and faithful to God. When it is time to flee we need to keep in mind what we are fleeing from and why. We can be assured what we will return to will be much better then what we fled from. We cannot be like Lots wife who hesitated and looked back and was turned to a pillar of salt.

We cannot let those who do not believe we are in the climax of things and the end of this system is at hand hinder us when it is time to flee. We have the example of Abraham when God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. He would not have destroyed them if there was a single righteous person. God had read their hearts and new none of them would repent. When the destruction comes we ca be sure those who did not flee either did not believe Jesus warning or they chose not to repent. God would not leave anyone righteous behind. We also have to consider what is righteous in God’s eyes not what is righteous in mans eyes. Someone may seem kind and caring but there are many examples of kind and caring people who lacked faith in God so they brought harm on others. Our hearts must be complete towards God and we should not doubt anything we have read in his word or the things we must do to please him and to survive the destruction coming on this world wide system of things. While we patiently wait we need to continue to try our best to find all God’s sheep, and to produce good fruits and not get lax in our attitudes in believing God is delaying things because the destruction will come suddenly and at a time that we do not know. So when it is time to flee we cannot falsely reason that there is still time. Abraham did this and barely escaped the destruction. We should not fret the things we have to leave behind. The bible says in the day of destruction their silver and gold will not be able to save them. Our salvation comes from God who has appointed a savior and a king to protect us and get us through this tribulation and this is Jesus Christ. Though the signs are very clearly there that we are in the final minutes of this system of things many will not believe it and will carry on life as usual and not prepare themselves spiritually, mentally or even physically for the things that are about to occur. Their lack of faith will end in them not escaping destruction. We must be very very careful associating with such ones so we do not delay when it is time to flee. We should continue to try and build their faith and plant the seeds and pray for them but we should be very very careful their lack of faith does not get us to stop remaining alert and on the watch. We could very easily become blinded to the reality that all the prophecies showing it will be time to flee soon has occurred and some are occurring at this very moment. I know these are difficult words to here but we each are given a choice, those who do not heed Jesus warnings and do not flee will have made their choice. We cannot make the decisions for them they have to set their minds on spiritual things and trust God completely in order to escape what is about to occur. These ones do not pay attention to the sign Jesus and the apostles told us to watch for they need direct evidence. Unfortunately when that occurs it will be too late for them to escape because that evidence will be seen while the destruction is occurring and there will be no escape for those who did not have the faith to heed Jesus words.

Now more then ever it if very important to continue to work towards repentance as our knowledge grows of God and his only begotten son. We need to trust him and listen to all he has warned us of and have no doubts. We need to persist in prayer and in producing the fruits of the spirit. This will prevent us from being blinded to what is occurring now and what is about to occur. We are very near to much happier times. We are at a point in time similar to when Israel could see the promised land. Some of them lost faith just before entering the promised land and died. Me are very very near to the new system now more then ever we should be happy that the hope in the future promises are about to be fulfilled and if we make it through the great tribulation we will get to see many of our dead loved ones we lost during the resurrection.

If you still have any doubts about the times we are in I am going to post scriptures to show we are in the final minutes of this system. Keep in mind though these things have always occurred they have never occurred on the grand scale they are now or all at the same times as they are occurring now. We need to keep in mind Jesus said these things would occur on a scale no one has ever seen before. The starvation, earthquakes, pestilence, violence, wars, and many other things are happening on a world wild scale at a level they have never occurred before.

(Matthew 24:4-14) 4 In answer Jesus said to them: “Look out that nobody misleads you, 5 for many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6 You are going to hear of wars and reports of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for these things must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress. 9 “Then people will hand you over to tribulation and will kill you, and you will be hated by all the nations on account of my name. 10 Then, too, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and mislead many; 12 and because of the increasing of lawlessness, the love of the greater number will grow cold. 13 But the one who has endured to the end will be saved. 14 And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

(Matthew 10:16-31) 16 “Look! I am sending you out as sheep among wolves; so prove yourselves cautious as serpents and yet innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard against men, for they will hand you over to local courts and they will scourge you in their synagogues. 18 And you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a witness to them and the nations. 19 However, when they hand you over, do not become anxious about how or what you are to speak, for what you are to speak will be given you in that hour; 20 for the ones speaking are not just you, but it is the spirit of your Father that speaks by you. 21 Further, brother will hand brother over to death, and a father his child, and children will rise up against parents and will have them put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all people on account of my name, but the one who has endured to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in one city, flee to another; for truly I say to you, you will by no means complete the circuit of the cities of Israel until the Son of man arrives. 24 “A student is not above his teacher, nor a slave above his master. 25 It is enough for the student to become as his teacher, and the slave as his master. If people have called the master of the house Be·elʹze·bub, how much more those of his household? 26 So do not fear them, for there is nothing covered over that will not become uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known. 27 What I tell you in the darkness, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, preach from the housetops. 28 And do not become fearful of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Ge·henʹna. 29 Two sparrows sell for a coin of small value, do they not? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So have no fear; you are worth more than many sparrows.

(John 5:28-30) 28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment. 30 I cannot do a single thing of my own initiative. Just as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous because I seek, not my own will, but the will of him who sent me.

(1 Thessalonians 5:1-9) 5 Now as for the times and the seasons, brothers, you need nothing to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know very well that Jehovah’s day is coming exactly as a thief in the night. 3 Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape. 4 But you, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that the day should overtake you as it would thieves, 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We belong neither to night nor to darkness. 6 So, then, let us not sleep on as the rest do, but let us stay awake and keep our senses. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But as for us who belong to the day, let us keep our senses and put on the breastplate of faith and love and the hope of salvation as a helmet 9 because God assigned us, not to wrath, but to the acquiring of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. . .

(Matthew 24:15-22) 15 “Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place (let the reader use discernment), 16 then let those in Ju·deʹa begin fleeing to the mountains. 17 Let the man on the housetop not come down to take the goods out of his house, 18 and let the man in the field not return to pick up his outer garment. 19 Woe to the pregnant women and those nursing a baby in those days! 20 Keep praying that your flight may not occur in wintertime nor on the Sabbath day; 21 for then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. 22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.

(Matthew 24:36-44) 36 “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 38 For as they were in those days before the Flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, 39 and they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken along and the other abandoned. 41 Two women will be grinding at the hand mill; one will be taken along and the other abandoned. 42 Keep on the watch, therefore, because you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 “But know one thing: If the householder had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have kept awake and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 On this account, you too prove yourselves ready, because the Son of man is coming at an hour that you do not think to be it.

(Revelation 7:13-17) . . .” 14 So right away I said to him: “My lord, you are the one who knows.” And he said to me: “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 That is why they are before the throne of God, and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them. 16 They will hunger no more nor thirst anymore, neither will the sun beat down on them nor any scorching heat, 17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them and will guide them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.. . .

(Ecclesiastes 9:12) 12 For man does not know his time. Just as fish are caught in an evil net and birds are caught in a trap, so the sons of men are ensnared in a time of disaster, when it suddenly overtakes them.

(James 4:13-5:8) 13 Come, now, you who say: “Today or tomorrow we will travel to this city and will spend a year there, and we will do business and make some profit,” 14 whereas you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears. 15 Instead, you should say: “If Jehovah wills, we will live and do this or that.” 16 But now you take pride in your arrogant boasting. All such boasting is wicked. 17 Therefore, if someone knows how to do what is right and yet does not do it, it is a sin for him. 5 Come, now, you rich men, weep and wail over the miseries that are coming upon you. 2 Your riches have rotted, and your clothing has become moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver have rusted away, and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh. What you have stored up will be like a fire in the last days. 4 Look! The wages you have withheld from the workers who harvested your fields keep crying out, and the cries for help of the reapers have reached the ears of Jehovah of armies. 5 You have lived in luxury and for self-gratification on the earth. You have fattened your hearts on the day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned; you have murdered the righteous one. Is he not opposing you? 7 Be patient then, brothers, until the presence of the Lord. Look! The farmer keeps waiting for the precious fruit of the earth, exercising patience over it until the early rain and the late rain arrive. 8 You too exercise patience; make your hearts firm, because the presence of the Lord has drawn close.

(Isaiah 11:4-9)  4 He will judge the lowly with fairness, And with uprightness he will give reproof in behalf of the meek ones of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth And put the wicked to death with the breath of his lips.  5 Righteousness will be the belt around his waist, And faithfulness the belt of his hips.  6 The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb, And with the young goat the leopard will lie down, And the calf and the lion and the fattened animal will all be together; And a little boy will lead them.  7 The cow and the bear will feed together, And their young will lie down together. The lion will eat straw like the bull.  8 The nursing child will play over the lair of a cobra, And a weaned child will put his hand over the den of a poisonous snake.  9 They will not cause any harm Or any ruin in all my holy mountain, Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah. . .

(2 Peter 3:11-13) 11 Since all these things are to be dissolved in this way, consider what sort of people you ought to be in holy acts of conduct and deeds of godly devotion, 12 as you await and keep close in mind the presence of the day of Jehovah, through which the heavens will be destroyed in flames and the elements will melt in the intense heat! 13 But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.

(Revelation 2:10, 11) 10 Do not be afraid of the things you are about to suffer. Look! The Devil will keep on throwing some of you into prison so that you may be fully put to the test, and you will have tribulation for ten days. Prove yourself faithful even to death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11 Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: The one who conquers will by no means be harmed by the second death.’

(Revelation 20:12-21:4) 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. 14 And death and the Grave were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire. 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I also saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

(Revelation 21:7, 8) 7 Anyone conquering will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and the sexually immoral and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This means the second death.. . .

(Revelation 20:10) 10 And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulfur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet already were; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

(Jude 14-21) 14 Yes, the seventh one in line from Adam, Eʹnoch, also prophesied about them when he said: “Look! Jehovah came with his holy myriads 15 to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly concerning all their ungodly deeds that they did in an ungodly way, and concerning all the shocking things that ungodly sinners spoke against him.” 16 These men are murmurers, complainers about their lot in life, following their own desires, and their mouths make grandiose boasts, while they are flattering others for their own benefit. 17 As for you, beloved ones, call to mind the sayings that have been previously spoken by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, 18 how they used to say to you: “In the last time there will be ridiculers, following their own desires for ungodly things.” 19 These are the ones who cause divisions, animalistic men, not having spirituality. 20 But you, beloved ones, build yourselves up on your most holy faith, and pray with holy spirit, 21 in order to keep yourselves in God’s love, while you await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ with everlasting life in view.

(Isaiah 55:7-9)  7 Let the wicked man leave his way And the evil man his thoughts; Let him return to Jehovah, who will have mercy on him, To our God, for he will forgive in a large way.  8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, And your ways are not my ways,” declares Jehovah.  9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So my ways are higher than your ways And my thoughts than your thoughts.

(Hebrews 8:10-13) 10 “‘For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,’ says Jehovah. ‘I will put my laws in their mind, and in their hearts I will write them. And I will become their God, and they will become my people. 11 “‘And they will no longer teach each one his fellow citizen and each one his brother, saying: “Know Jehovah!” For they will all know me, from the least to the greatest of them. 12 For I will be merciful toward their unrighteous deeds, and I will no longer call their sins to mind.’” 13 In his saying “a new covenant,” he has made the former one obsolete. Now what is obsolete and growing old is near to vanishing away.

(2 Peter 3:8-10) 8 However, do not let this escape your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. 10 But Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be exposed.

(Romans 2:3-8) 3 But do you suppose, O man, that while you judge those who practice such things and yet you do them, you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, because you do not know that God in his kindness is trying to lead you to repentance? 5 But according to your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath and of the revealing of God’s righteous judgment. 6 And he will pay back to each one according to his works: 7 everlasting life to those who are seeking glory and honor and incorruptibleness by endurance in work that is good; 8 however, for those who are contentious and who disobey the truth but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and anger.

(Matthew 7:13-23) 13 “Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; 14 whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it. 15 “Be on the watch for the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? 17 Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. 19 Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those men. 21 “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’

(1 Corinthians 15:26-28) 26 And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. 27 For God “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that this does not include the One who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.

(Isaiah 25:8, 9)  8 He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it.  9 In that day they will say: “Look! This is our God! We have hoped in him, And he will save us. This is Jehovah! We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.”

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) 9 But the lawless one’s presence is by the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and wonders 10 and every unrighteous deception for those who are perishing, as a retribution because they did not accept the love of the truth in order that they might be saved. 11 That is why God lets a deluding influence mislead them so that they may come to believe the lie, 12 in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness.

(Hebrews 10:35-39) 35 Therefore, do not throw away your boldness, which will be richly rewarded. 36 For you need endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the fulfillment of the promise. 37 For yet “a very little while,” and “the one who is coming will arrive and will not delay.” 38 “But my righteous one will live by reason of faith,” and “if he shrinks back, I have no pleasure in him.” 39 Now we are not the sort who shrink back to destruction, but the sort who have faith for the preserving of our lives.

(Ezekiel 33:10, 11) . . .’ 11 Tell them, ‘“As surely as I am alive,” declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, “I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that someone wicked changes his way and keeps living. Turn back, turn back from your bad ways, for why should you die, O house of Israel?”’

(1 Timothy 2:2-6) . . .. 3 This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4 whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all—this is what is to be witnessed to in its own due time.

(Genesis 19:16, 17) . . .. 17 As soon as they had brought them to the outskirts, he said: “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you and do not stand still in any part of the district! Escape to the mountainous region so that you may not be swept away. . .

(Genesis 19:23-26) 23 The sun had risen over the land when Lot arrived at Zoʹar. 24 Then Jehovah made it rain sulfur and fire on Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah—it came from Jehovah, from the heavens. 25 So he overthrew these cities, yes, the entire district, including all the inhabitants of the cities and the plants of the ground. 26 But Lot’s wife, who was behind him, began to look back, and she became a pillar of salt.

(Genesis 18:22-28) 22 Then the men left from there and went toward Sodʹom, but Jehovah remained with Abraham. 23 Then Abraham approached and said: “Will you really sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24 Suppose there are 50 righteous men within the city. Will you, then, sweep them away and not pardon the place for the sake of the 50 righteous who are inside it? 25 It is unthinkable that you would act in this manner by putting the righteous man to death with the wicked one so that the outcome for the righteous man and the wicked is the same! It is unthinkable of you. Will the Judge of all the earth not do what is right?” 26 Then Jehovah said: “If I find in Sodʹom 50 righteous men in the city, I will pardon the whole place for their sake.” 27 But Abraham again responded: “Please, here I have presumed to speak to Jehovah, whereas I am dust and ashes. 28 Suppose the 50 righteous should lack five. Because of the five will you destroy the whole city?” To this he said: “I will not destroy it if I find there 45.”

(Genesis 19:12-17) 12 Then the men said to Lot: “Do you have anyone else here? Sons-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and all your people in the city, bring out of this place! 13 For we are going to destroy this place, because the outcry against them has indeed grown great before Jehovah, so that Jehovah sent us to destroy the city.” 14 So Lot went out and began to speak to his sons-in-law who were to marry his daughters, and he kept saying: “Get up! Get out of this place, because Jehovah will destroy the city!” But to his sons-in-law, he seemed to be joking. 15 As dawn was breaking, the angels became urgent with Lot, saying: “Get up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here with you, so that you will not be swept away in the error of the city!” 16 When he kept lingering, then because of Jehovah’s compassion for him, the men seized hold of his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, and they brought him out and stationed him outside the city. 17 As soon as they had brought them to the outskirts, he said: “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you and do not stand still in any part of the district! Escape to the mountainous region so that you may not be swept away!”

(Matthew 21:42, 43) 42 Jesus said to them: “Did you never read in the Scriptures, ‘The stone that the builders rejected, this has become the chief cornerstone. This has come from Jehovah, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? 43 This is why I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken from you and be given to a nation producing its fruits.

(Ecclesiastes 8:11-13) . . .. 12 Although a sinner may do bad a hundred times and still live a long time, yet I am aware that it will turn out well for those who fear the true God, because they fear him. 13 But it will not turn out well for the wicked one, nor will he prolong his days that are like a shadow, because he does not fear God.

(2 Peter 3:5-7) 5 For they deliberately ignore this fact, that long ago there were heavens and an earth standing firmly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and that by those means the world of that time suffered destruction when it was flooded with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that now exist are reserved for fire and are being kept until the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly people.

(Zephaniah 1:14-18) 14 The great day of Jehovah is near! It is near and it is approaching very quickly! The sound of the day of Jehovah is bitter. There a warrior cries out. 15 That day is a day of fury, A day of distress and anguish, A day of storm and desolation, A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick gloom, 16 A day of the horn and of the battle cry, Against the fortified cities and against the high corner towers. 17 I will cause distress to mankind, And they will walk like blind men, Because it is against Jehovah they have sinned. Their blood will be poured out like dust, And their flesh like the dung. 18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them in the day of Jehovah’s fury; For by the fire of his zeal the whole earth will be consumed, Because he will make an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.”

(Psalm 91:4) 4 With his pinions he will cover you, And under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness will be a large shield and a protective wall.

(2 Peter 3:3-7) 3 First of all know this, that in the last days ridiculers will come with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires 4 and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep in death, all things are continuing exactly as they were from creation’s beginning.” 5 For they deliberately ignore this fact, that long ago there were heavens and an earth standing firmly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and that by those means the world of that time suffered destruction when it was flooded with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that now exist are reserved for fire and are being kept until the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly people.

(Habakkuk 1:5)  5 “Look among the nations and pay attention! Stare in amazement and be astounded; For something will happen in your days That you will not believe even if it is told to you. . .

(Habakkuk 2:3) 3 For the vision is yet for its appointed time, And it is rushing toward its end, and it will not lie. Even if it should delay, keep in expectation of it! For it will without fail come true. It will not be late!

(Isaiah 5:19) Those who say: “Let Him speed up his work; Let it come quickly that we may see it. Let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel take place That we may know it!”

(2 Peter 3:4) and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep in death, all things are continuing exactly as they were from creation’s beginning.”

(Revelation 21:1-4) 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I also saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

(Acts 3:19-26) 19 “Repent, therefore, and turn around so as to get your sins blotted out, so that seasons of refreshing may come from Jehovah himself 20 and he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus. 21 Heaven must hold this one within itself until the times of restoration of all things of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old. 22 In fact, Moses said: ‘Jehovah your God will raise up for you from among your brothers a prophet like me. You must listen to whatever he tells you. 23 Indeed, anyone who does not listen to that Prophet will be completely destroyed from among the people.’ 24 And all the prophets from Samuel and those who followed him, as many as have spoken, have also plainly declared these days. 25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your forefathers, saying to Abraham: ‘And by means of your offspring all the families of the earth will be blessed.’ 26 God, after raising up his Servant, sent him to you first to bless you by turning each one of you away from your wicked deeds.”

Scriptures indicating we are in the final minutes of this system and that we should be alert and ready to flee.

Matthew 24:3-14

2 Timothy 3:1-8

Luke 21:11

Daniel 12:4 there would be a clearer understanding of God’s prophecy by those being called by God.

Matthew 24:37-39, 2 Peter 3:3,4 , Luke 17:28-30 Wide spread apathy about the times we are in and how critical they are.

Mathew 24:33 when you see all these things occurring.

Revelation 12:7-12 Satan cast out of heaven so things would get much much worse.

Luke 17:28-30 , Jude 17 most would ignore the warnings of the signs just as in Noah’s day.

Revelation 11:18 man would ruin the earth.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 , Isaiah 29:13-15 , Matthew 24:5 , 1 John 2:18 , Jude 11, Amos 8:11,12, 2 Timothy 4:3-4 there is one truth. The great apostasy would be revealed showing why there are so many religious sects. They would put tradition and commands of man over those of God. We were warned the great apostasy would come first. False worship would be exposed and it would become clearer who truly follows Christ and who is part of the great apostasy.

Isaiah 2:17 man would see more glory in those who desire to seize power and wealth then in doing what is right. They would pretty much say what is bad is good and what is good is bad.

Matthew 24:14 message of the heavenly kingdom would be preached in all the earth.

God’s word will be banned. We must write his word on our hearts while we can.

 

If you don't read it how can you have faith.

Deuteronomy 11:18 English Standard Version (ESV)

18 “You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

Hebrews 8:10 English Standard Version (ESV)

10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, declares the Lord:
I will put my laws into their minds,
and write them on their hearts,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
Matthew 22:37 ESV

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

 

Those who love and trust God would not only read God’s word but they would live it. It would guide all they do. So much so that it would become a part of them. We know our hearts are deceptive and if we do not write God’s word on our hearts and live by his word our hearts can mislead us.

 

Jeremiah 17:9 ESV

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?

Psalm 40:8 ESV

I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

 

Christ set the perfect example for us to follow by imitating him and learning from him we will please God. We must keep the commandments Jesus gave us. We must put on the new personality and not look back at the old.

 

1John ESV

2 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 3 And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

All this will be gone pretty soon. Why store up treasures that will soon be gone. The treasure we store in heaven will remain. The things in this system will be gone very very soon. We are close to the end of this system and near the beginning of the new system. Most of the things in this system will be gone. If we have not stored up treasures in heaven then what hope do we have?

Matthew 6

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Collosians 3

12 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

What we talk about and how we speak indicates what is written in our hearts. We must guard our tongues and speak of good things as much as possible and not get caught up in the habit many have of spreading gossip , rumors and using vulgar language. What comes out of our mouth shows what is in our hearts.

James 1 ESV

19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.

 

Matthew 12

33“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit. 34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.35 The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. 36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, 37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

 

Very soon the truths of the bible will not be tolerated. We can see it happening now. Many have become slaves of corruption while falsely declaring themselves righteous. If we do not put God’s word into our hearts we could also be misled.

 

2Timothy 4

3For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

2 Peter 2:10-19 NWT

Daring and self-willed, they are not afraid to speak abusively of glorious ones, 11 whereas angels, although they are greater in strength and power, do not bring against them an accusation in abusive terms, out of respect for Jehovah. 12 But these men, like unreasoning animals that act on instinct and are born to be caught and destroyed, speak abusively about things of which they are ignorant. They will suffer destruction brought on by their own destructive course, 13 suffering harm as their reward for their own harmful course. They consider it pleasurable to indulge in luxurious living, even in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes who revel in their deceptive teachings while feasting together with you. 14 Their eyes are full of adultery and are unable to desist from sin, and they entice unstable ones. They have a heart trained in greed. They are accursed children. 15 Abandoning the straight path, they have been led astray. They have followed the path of Baʹlaam the son of Beʹor, who loved the reward of wrongdoing, 16 but was reproved for his own violation of what was right. A voiceless beast of burden speaking with a human voice hindered the prophet’s mad course. 17 These are waterless springs and mists driven by a violent storm, and the blackest darkness has been reserved for them. 18 They make high-sounding statements that are empty. By appealing to the desires of the flesh and with acts of brazen conduct, they entice people who have just escaped from those who live in error. 19 While they are promising them freedom, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for if anyone is overcome by someone, he is his slave.

Very soon the beast will ban true worship and attack God’s people. When this happens all those who oppose the truth will meet their end and be destroyed. They will take our bibles and punish anyone who is caught with one. Many from false religion will side with the beast also in the battle. This will provoke God to give Jesus the command to end all this corruption and sin and to save those who have been seeking Jehovah with an honest heart.

Revelation 16 NWT

13 And I saw three unclean inspired expressions that looked like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and they perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty. 15 “Look! I am coming as a thief. Happy is the one who stays awake and keeps his outer garments, so that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness.”

Revelation 19 NWT

19  And I saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the one seated on the horse and against his army. 20 And the wild beast was caught, and along with it the false prophet that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who worship its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulfur. 21 But the rest were killed off with the long sword that proceeded out of the mouth of the one seated on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

Matthew 24 NWT

7 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress.9 “Then people will hand you over to tribulation and will kill you, and you will be hated by all the nations on account of my name. 10 Then, too, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and mislead many; 12 and because of the increasing of lawlessness, the love of the greater number will grow cold. 13 But the one who has endured to the end will be saved.

I have posted on who the beast is, it is the disgusting thing mentioned. When this occurs we are to flee just as Jehovah’s people had to in the past when he had judged a nation. Only this time it will be on a world wide scale. Even now many nations have started to attack true worship so we know it has begun and we need to prepare our hearts so we will have God’s word written on them when they start taking his words from us.

Matthew 24 NWT

15 “Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy placer (let the reader use discernment), 16 then let those in Ju·deʹa begin fleeing to the mountains. 17 Let the man on the housetop not come down to take the goods out of his house,18 and let the man in the field not return to pick up his outer garment. 19 Woe to the pregnant women and those nursing a baby in those days! 20 Keep praying that your flight may not occur in wintertime nor on the Sabbath day;21 for then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. 22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.

Those who have been causing the tribulation and will cause it will be punished with everlasting destruction.

2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 NWT

6 This takes into account that it is righteous on God’s part to repay tribulation to those who make tribulation for you. 7 But you who suffer tribulation will be given relief along with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his powerful angels 8 in a flaming fire, as he brings vengeance on those who do not know God and those who do not obey the good news about our Lord Jesus. 9 These very ones will undergo the judicial punishment of everlasting destruction from before the Lord and from the glory of his strength, 10 at the time when he comes to be glorified in connection with his holy ones and to be regarded in that day with wonder among all those who exercised faith, because the witness we gave met with faith among you.

Only those who have written God’s word on their hearts will escape. Many will continue on just as they did in Noah’s day not seeing that the end is near so they will not escape the destruction that is coming. This is why now more then ever it is important to write God’s word on our hearts.

1 Thessalonians 5 NWT

5 Now as for the times and the seasons, brothers, you need nothing to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know very well that Jehovah’s day is coming exactly as a thief in the night. 3 Whenever it is that they are saying, “Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them, just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape. 4 But you, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that the day should overtake you as it would thieves, 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We belong neither to night nor to darkness.

Matthew 24 NWT

36 “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 38 For as they were in those days before the Flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, 39 and they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.

We must avoid the things that have resulted in those God had judged in times past that blinded them so they did not see the destruction that was coming, so we will not be blinded and escape the destruction that is coming soon we must stay awake and write God’s word on our hearts.

Luke 21 NWT

Play

34 “But pay attention to yourselves that your hearts never become weighed down with overeating and heavy drinking and anxieties of life, and suddenly that day be instantly upon you 35 as a snare. For it will come upon all those dwelling on the face of the whole earth.36 Keep awake,then, all the time making supplicatione that you may succeed in escaping all these things that must occur and in standing before the Son of man.

We do not need to fear when these things begin to occur. It should be happy times for us because it is an indication that deliverance is near and we only have a little longer to endure.

Luke 21 NWT

28 But as these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near.”

Joel NWT

21 Do not be afraid, O land. Be joyful and rejoice, for Jehovah will do great things. 22 Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field, For the pastures of the wilderness will become green, And the trees will bear fruit; The fig tree and the vine must give their full yield. 23 You sons of Zion, be joyful and rejoice in Jehovah your God; For he will give you the autumn rain in the right amount, And he will send upon you a downpour, The autumn rain and the spring rain, as before. 24 The threshing floors will be full of pure grain, And the presses will overflow with new wine and oil. 25 And I will make compensation to you for the years That the swarming locust, the unwinged locust, the voracious locust, and the devouring locust have eaten, My great army that I sent among you. 26 You will surely eat to satisfaction, And you will praise the name of Jehovah your God, Who has done wonders in your behalf; My people will never again be put to shame. 27 And you will have to know that I am in the midst of Israel And that I am Jehovah your God—there is no other! My people will never again be put to shame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those Not helping the ones effected by chronic illness will not be helped on God’s great day of judgment.

Written by Lee Stevenson. Sorry I did not edit it but I am very busy trying to figure out how to find a source of income, I have been trying to find a way to make money with my limited resources so I do not have much time for editing.

Vaccine injury, Lyme disease and chronic illness from the BT Toxins and glyophosate used in GMOs are the most common forms of chronic illness now days but Lyme sufferers are the most looked down on and most discriminated against. As they judge us they also will be judged on Gods great day.

(Matthew 7:1-5) 7 “Stop judging that you may not be judged; 2 for with the judgment you are judging, you will be judged, and with the measure that you are measuring out, they will measure out to you. 3 Why, then, do you look at the straw in your brother’s eye but do not notice the rafter in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Allow me to remove the straw from your eye,’ when look! a rafter is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the rafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to remove the straw from your brother’s eye.

Lyme needs systematic inflammation to take out the immune system. Our environment and food is so toxic that it is causing systematic inflammation in people. The OspA is a funfal antigen that is used in bioweapons, vaccinations and many pathogens have somehow developed the ability to produce a variety of outer surface proteins that are similar to the OspA fungal antigen. My question is how did they suddenly develop this ability? Now add this with the well known fact vaccinations also cause systematic inflammation and you can see why so many are developing chronic illness from tick born disease. Ask yourself what has changed to cause so much chronic illness now days? Now I am going to describe what I experienced.

Fortunately we have Carl Tuttle on our side and his pursuit of justice and fairness is relentless. He does not let up. I am glad he is on our side and not theirs. I would not want to be on the opposing side of him. He is thorough with his research and knows what he is talking about. He has been amazing. Those suffering from mysterious illness that they cannot explain should read this. This is a medical professional describing her experience in getting diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease.

https://www.change.org/p/the-us-senate-calling-for-a-congressional-investigation-of-the-cdc-idsa-and-aldf/u/23804038?cs_tk=Aa50gapTNyDGCxZmN1wA-1Zm1fmnEl69rt_9r7wtrA%3D%3D&utm_campaign=9fe2604cf8a245db9d0c28c6047d9430&utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_update&utm_term=cs

If you do not have Lyme you are one insaect bite, or one sexual partner away from your life being destroy. There are many methods Lyme can be transmitted. You can carry it for decades then one vaccination, too many GMOs or too many toxins and you will experience what this medical professional did. They first try to prescribe Psych meds. Then they ignore you and tell you not to come back to their office you have to jump from one doctor to another and all of them will do the same exact things. This woman had a lacerated meniscus and swollen knee. This was my first symptoms and happened exactly like it happened to her only when they went in to repair my meniscus they discovered weird calcium deposits on my muscles and ligaments. they removed them and my muscle spasms went away for a while and I could use my leg. Then slowly this started happening throughout my body.

Then over the years different joints including my fingers would swell and get very sore. They told me I had gout or arthritis. All doctors had the same reactions when the test come back negative for both. So their next reaction was because I believe something was wrong with my body I was imagining things and it was causing my body to react this way. So again they tried to prescribe me psych meds. Then just before I become bedridden many of my joints started developing cyst around them including my fingers and toes. The pain was beyond anything I could describe. I finally found a doctor who know immediately what it was but said I was so ill that giving me antibiotics my kill me. I thought she forgot about me because I laid for four months. My Facebook friends were teaching me how to heal and I was slowly getting better. Then my new doctor called said she finally found someone who knew how to treat someone who was as ill as I was.

It took me so long to get treated that it destroyed my health, I lost my job and you will be denied disability if you get Lyme. I have watched Lyme sufferers starve to death and become homeless because most peoples family will not research things but will believe the false narratives surrounding Lyme so they offer no help and actually do things to try and force use into doing things we are not capable of doing. I lost everything I had even my tools. To eat and to get medical treatment I had to sell everything I had. There are many Lyme suffers Laying bedridden right now with family that will not help them and treat them horrible because of the false narratives out there.

God does not accept ignorance as an excuse when the truth is easily available so all those involved, even those who choose to remain ignorant neglect those suffering will be held accountable on Jehovah’s great day.

I have covered why many die before getting diagnosed with Lyme in another blog post.

This is why there cannot be a real Lyme test.

Ticks are not the only methods of Lyme transmission other biting insects can transmit it. It can be transmitted from mother to child, It can also be transmitted sexually. Many who have gotten Lyme do not remember getting bitten by a tick because most likely they were not bitten by a tick but became infected through other means.

God sees what they are doing and will hold them accountable.

Jeremiah 8:“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
9 The wise men shall be put to shame;they shall be dismayed and taken; behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord,
so what wisdom is in them?
10 Therefore I will give their wives to others
and their fields to conquerors,because from the least to the greatest everyone is greedy for unjust gain; from prophet to priest,everyone deals falsely.
11 They have healed the wound of my people lightly,
saying, ‘Peace, peace,’when there is no peace.
12 Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among the fallen;
when I punish them, they shall be overthrown,says the Lord.

2Peter 2:and if He delivered righteous Lot, vexed with the filthy conduct of the wicked

(for that righteous man, having dwelt among them seeing and hearing, was vexed in his righteous soul day after day with their unlawful deeds)—

then the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished,

10 but chiefly those who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise governance. Presumptuous are they and selfwilled; they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities,

11 whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not, and shall utterly perish in their own corruption,

13 and shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceptions while they feast with you,

14 having eyes full of adultery and who cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls; their hearts they have exercised with covetous practices; accursed children!

15 They have forsaken the right way and have gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages ofunrighteousness,

16 but was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with a man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried by a tempest, for whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh and through much wantonness those who had clean escaped from those who live in error.

19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption; for by whom a man is overcome, by the same is he brought into bondage.

Proverbs 21:He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.

Micah 3:4 Then they will cry out to the LORD, But He will not answer them Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time Because they have practiced evil deeds.

(Psalm 12:5)  5 “Because the afflicted are oppressed, Because of the sighing of the poor, I will rise up to act,” says Jehovah. “I will save them from those who treat them with contempt. . .

(Proverbs 28:24-27) 24 Whoever robs his father and mother and says, “It is not wrong,” Is a partner of the man who causes ruin. 25 The greedy person stirs up dissension, But whoever relies on Jehovah will prosper. 26 Whoever trusts in his own heart is stupid, But the one who walks in wisdom will escape. 27 Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, But the one who closes his eyes to them will receive many curses.

What is the meaning of the “sea” in the book of Revelation?

If you don't read it how can you have faith.

 

Written by Lee Stevenson. Sorry I am a lousy editor.

Revelations is a book of signs. So we know much of Revelations is symbolism. So what does the symbol for the Sea that the beast rises from mentioned in Revelations represent?

One thing to take note of is that the beast represents many human governments who help give the beast it’s authority. If you remember in Revelations 17 the harlot would ride on the beast back. I have posted on who the harlot is and clarified who the beast is in another post. Revelations 17 clarifies that the waters mean peoples.

(Revelation 13:1, 2) 13 And it stood still upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, and upon its horns ten diadems, but upon its heads blasphemous names. 2 Now the wild beast that I saw was like a leopard, but its feet were as those of a bear, and its mouth was as a lion’s mouth. And the dragon gave to [the beast] its power and its throne and great authority.

(Revelation 17:15) And he says to me: “The waters that you saw, where the harlot is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues.

Why does the bible refer to people as the sea. Well just as the sea will go which ever way the wind blows it people react the same way when they hear rumors and gossip. They are indecisive and easy to sway, the least bit of gossip or the slightest rumor and they can be manipulated.

(Isaiah 57:20) “But the wicked are like the sea that is being tossed, when it is unable to calm down, the waters of which keep tossing up seaweed and mire.

(Psalm 18:4) The ropes of death encircled me; Flash floods of good-for-nothing [men] also kept terrifying me.

(Isaiah 17:12) Ha for the commotion of many peoples, who are boisterous as with the boisterousness of the seas! And for the noise of national groups, who make a din just like the noise of mighty waters!

So the sea that will be no more in Revelations is referring to the people who were part of the see mentioned in the previous verses of Revelations.

(Revelation 21:1) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more.

Notice the things in the sea will die. It is why we are warned to be not part of the world because of their lack of faith they will not survive. We cannot completely cut ourselves off from the world but we must be cautious about who we associate with and continue to grow spiritually. We know that those who are part of the world will go from bad to worse. So much so that they no longer know what is right and what is wrong. It is why they are easily swayed by opinions and gossip. Writing God’s laws in our hearts protects us from getting caught up in those thing.

(Revelation 16:3) 3 And the second one poured out his bowl into the sea. And it became blood as of a dead man, and every living soul died, [yes,] the things in the sea. . .

(John 17:14-18) 14 I have given your word to them, but the world has hated them, because they are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. 15 “I request you, not to take them out of the world, but to watch over them because of the wicked one. 16 They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. 17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. 18 Just as you sent me forth into the world, I also sent them forth into the world.

We will enjoy inner peace even when under severe attack. We also we not be afraid and will not be indecisive. We will listen to God’s word when this system ends they will not be able to find their way out of the world that is being destroyed because they have not take then selves out of it but continue to cling to false teaching and even ignore our heavenly father.

(John 20:21) 21 Jesus, therefore, said to them again: “May YOU have peace. Just as the Father has sent me forth, I also am sending YOU.

(1 John 4:4-6) 4 YOU originate with God, little children, and YOU have conquered those [persons], because he that is in union with YOU is greater than he that is in union with the world. 5 They originate with the world; that is why they speak [what proceeds] from the world and the world listens to them. 6 We originate with God. He that gains the knowledge of God listens to us; he that does not originate with God does not listen to us. This is how we take note of the inspired expression of truth and the inspired expression of error.

As we can see we cannot be friends with the world and friends with Jehovah.

(James 4:4) Adulteresses, do YOU not know that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever, therefore, wants to be a friend of the world is constituting himself an enemy of God

(1 John 2:15) Do not be loving either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him;

Because we are no part of the world the world will hate us and we will be treated likewise. But we have the hope of the future promises. Jesus himself said the student is no better then the teacher. If we follow his lead and do our best to imitate him we also will be hated as he was.

(John 15:17-20) 17 “These things I command YOU, that YOU love one another. 18 If the world hates YOU, YOU know that it has hated me before it hated YOU. 19 If YOU were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because YOU are no part of the world, but I have chosen YOU out of the world, on this account the world hates YOU. 20 Bear in mind the word I said to YOU, A slave is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute YOU also; if they have observed my word, they will observe YOURS also.

(Matthew 16:24-27) 24 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “If anyone wants to come after me, let him disown himself and pick up his torture stake and continually follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save his soul will lose it; but whoever loses his soul for my sake will find it. 26 For what benefit will it be to a man if he gains the whole world but forfeits his soul? or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of man is destined to come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will recompense each one according to his behavior. . .

We know to be a part of the world when judgement starts which is very very soon will mean we will forteit our life there will be no resurrection for us so there will be no second death meaning we will not have a chance to make things right because we will have already been given that chance and forfeited it. We know the dead are aware of nothing their thoughts perish so they will not live again but all their thoughts will be gone forever.

(Psalm 115:17) The dead themselves do not praise Jah, Nor do any going down into silence

(Psalm 146:3, 4)  3 Do not put YOUR trust in nobles, Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs.  4 His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish.

(Ezekiel 18:20) 20 The soul that is sinning—it itself will die. A son himself will bear nothing because of the error of the father, and a father himself will bear nothing because of the error of the son. Upon his own self the very righteousness of the righteous one will come to be, and upon his own self the very wickedness of a wicked one will come to be. . .

(Revelation 20:13-15) 13 And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Ha′des gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. 14 And death and Ha′des were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire. . .

Those who remain steadfast in their faith and loyalty will remain. And there reward will be greater then anything man has to offer.

(Revelation 21:1-4) 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. . .

(Psalm 37:29) 29 The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it. . .

So we need to strive to do our best in not imitating the world with their lack of concern for the down trodden and their out right gossiping and resentment towards the down trodden. When they judge us for our actions the weakness is their own not ours so do not take it personal. If we are putting God’s will first then that is what matters because the world and the things in it will be gone soon.

(Matthew 25:34-40) 34 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world. 35 For I became hungry and YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and YOU received me hospitably; 36 naked, and YOU clothed me. I fell sick and YOU looked after me. I was in prison and YOU came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you?’ 40 And in reply the king will say to them, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to m. . .

(Matthew 25:41-46) 41 “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on YOUR way from me, YOU who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels. 42 For I became hungry, but YOU gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but YOU gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, but YOU did not receive me hospitably; naked, but YOU did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but YOU did not look after me.’ 44 Then they also will answer with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them with the words, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did not do it to one of these least ones, YOU did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.. . .

How wealth and a lack of mercy could result in our destruction.

Bible
How to use.

 

Many who are wealthy have a false sense of security but when Jehovah’s great day comes it will not protect them and he knows what they do and what is in their hearts. Those who do not help those in need will be held accountable and when they realize the wealth did not give them the security they believe it will be too late. We want to be careful not to fall into that trap.

(Isaiah 10:1-3) 10 Woe to those who are enacting harmful regulations and those who, constantly writing, have written out sheer trouble, 2 in order to push away the lowly ones from a legal case and to wrest away justice from the afflicted ones of my people, for the widows to become their spoil, and that they may plunder even the fatherless boys! 3 And what will YOU men do at the day of being given attention and at the ruin, when it comes from far away? Toward whom will YOU flee for assistance, and where will YOU leave YOUR glory. . .

(Proverbs 18:11) 11 The valuable things of the rich are his strong town, and they are like a protective wall in his imagination.

(Proverbs 11:4) Valuable things will be of no benefit on the day of fury, but righteousness itself will deliver from death

The bible warns us that pursuing wealth could jeopardize our future hope. It does not mean those who are wealthy will not be resurrected but it does warn us that it will make it more difficult.

(Matthew 19:23, 24) 23 But Jesus said to his disciples: “Truly I say to YOU that it will be a difficult thing for a rich man to get into the kingdom of the heavens. 24 Again I say to YOU, It is easier for a camel to get through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to get into the kingdom of God. . .

(Proverbs 22:22, 23) 22 Do not rob the lowly one because he is lowly, and do not crush the afflicted one in the gate. 23 For Jehovah himself will plead their cause, and he will certainly rob of soul those robbing them. . .

Death overcomes the wise, wealthy and the poor it is and eventuality we cannot avoid. But whether we are remembered by God or not in the day of resurrection will be based on how we responded to his instructions and whether we showed love for him through our actions.

(Psalm 49:10-17) 10 For he sees that even the wise ones die, Together the stupid one and the unreasoning one perish, And they must leave to others their means of maintenance. 11 Their inward wish is that their houses may be to time indefinite, Their tabernacles to generation after generation. They have called their landed estates by their names. 12 And yet earthling man, though in honor, cannot keep lodging; He is indeed comparable with the beasts that have been destroyed. 13 This is the way of those who have stupidity, And of those coming after them who take pleasure in their very mouthings. Se′lah. 14 Like sheep they have been appointed to She′ol itself; Death itself will shepherd them; And the upright ones will have them in subjection in the morning, And their forms are due to wear away; She′ol rather than a lofty abode is for each one. 15 However, God himself will redeem my soul from the hand of She′ol, For he will receive me. Se′lah. 16 Do not be afraid because some man gains riches, Because the glory of his house increases, 17 For at his death he cannot take along anything at all; His glory will not go down along with him himself.

(Luke 12:15-31) . . .” 16 With that he spoke an illustration to them, saying: “The land of a certain rich man produced well. 17 Consequently he began reasoning within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, now that I have nowhere to gather my crops?’ 18 So he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my storehouses and build bigger ones, and there I will gather all my grain and all my good things; 19 and I will say to my soul: “Soul, you have many good things laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, enjoy yourself.”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Unreasonable one, this night they are demanding your soul from you. Who, then, is to have the things you stored up?’ 21 So it goes with the man that lays up treasure for himself but is not rich toward God.” 22 Then he said to his disciples: “On this account I say to YOU, Quit being anxious about YOUR souls as to what YOU will eat or about YOUR bodies as to what YOU will wear. 23 For the soul is worth more than food and the body than clothing. 24 Mark well that the ravens neither sow seed nor reap, and they have neither barn nor storehouse, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more worth are YOU than birds? 25 Who of YOU by being anxious can add a cubit to his life span? 26 If, therefore, YOU cannot do the least thing, why be anxious about the remaining things? 27 Mark well how the lilies grow; they neither toil nor spin; but I tell YOU, Not even Sol′o·mon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. 28 If, now, God thus clothes the vegetation in the field that today exists and tomorrow is cast into an oven, how much rather will he clothe YOU, YOU with little faith! 29 So quit seeking what YOU might eat and what YOU might drink, and quit being in anxious suspense; 30 for all these are the things the nations of the world are eagerly pursuing, but YOUR Father knows YOU need these things. 31 Nevertheless, seek continually his kingdom, and these things will be added to YOU.

They store up treasures on earth which are temporary and will be gone. The price they may pay could be the forfeiture of eternal life. That is a heavy price to pay for a mere few years that man live in abundance of worldly things. We should store up treasures in heaven which no one can take and which will not rot away like the treasures on earth.

(James 2:5) Listen, my beloved brothers. God chose the ones who are poor respecting the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he promised to those who love him, did he not?

(Matthew 6:20) Rather, store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

(1 John 2:15-17) 15 Do not be loving either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; 16 because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one’s means of life—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world. 17 Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but he that does the will of God remains forever. . .

Those who do not help the less fortunate will not be heard by God in the day of calamity.

(Proverbs 19:17) 17 He that is showing favor to the lowly one is lending to Jehovah, and his treatment He will repay to him. . .

(Proverbs 21:13) As for anyone stopping up his ear from the complaining cry of the lowly one, he himself also will call and not be answered

(James 2:13) For the one that does not practice mercy will have [his] judgment without mercy. Mercy exults triumphantly over judgment.

The bible did not promise we would not go through trials and tribulation. It promised we would not fear the calamity we know is coming.

(Proverbs 1:28-33) 28 At that time they will keep calling me, but I shall not answer; they will keep looking for me, but they will not find me, 29 for the reason that they hated knowledge, and the fear of Jehovah they did not choose. 30 They did not consent to my counsel; they disrespected all my reproof. 31 So they will eat from the fruitage of their way, and they will be glutted with their own counsels. 32 For the renegading of the inexperienced ones is what will kill them, and the easygoingness of the stupid is what will destroy them. 33 As for the one listening to me, he will reside in security and be undisturbed from dread of calamity.. . .

When God’s great day comes we do not want to let our hearts feel happy for their demise. It is sad and means their judgment and destruction has come. They no longer have the opportunity to repent.

(Proverbs 24:17) When your enemy falls, do not rejoice; and when he is caused to stumble, may your heart not be joyful,

If we have then we should share it and I know from personal experience it brings real happiness. I never worry that I may have shared with the wrong person. I worry that I may not have shared with the right person. Many have entertained angels and did not know it. What if an angel has been sent to test your heart? What if you refused that angel hospitality?

(Acts 20:31-35) 31 “Therefore keep awake, and bear in mind that for three years, night and day, I did not quit admonishing each one with tears. 32 And now I commit YOU to God and to the word of his undeserved kindness, which [word] can build YOU up and give YOU the inheritance among all the sanctified ones. 33 I have coveted no man’s silver or gold or apparel. 34 YOU yourselves know that these hands have attended to the needs of me and of those with me. 35 I have exhibited to YOU in all things that by thus laboring YOU must assist those who are weak, and must bear in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, when he himself said, ‘There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.’”

(Hebrews 13:2) 2 Do not forget hospitality, for through it some, unknown to themselves, entertained angels. . .

If we have and do not share we may be rejected by Jesus and the door to the kingdom could be closed for us. So if possible we should share when we can.

(Matthew 25:34-40) 34 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world. 35 For I became hungry and YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and YOU received me hospitably; 36 naked, and YOU clothed me. I fell sick and YOU looked after me. I was in prison and YOU came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you?’ 40 And in reply the king will say to them, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me.. . .

(Matthew 25:41-46) 41 “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on YOUR way from me, YOU who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels. 42 For I became hungry, but YOU gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but YOU gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, but YOU did not receive me hospitably; naked, but YOU did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but YOU did not look after me.’ 44 Then they also will answer with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them with the words, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did not do it to one of these least ones, YOU did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.. . .

How we live our lives determines if we will resurrected to a resurrection of life or judgement.

(John 5:27-29) . . .. 28 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgmen. . .

The contrast between those who are cut off and those who have been blessed has been drawn in Revelation.

(Revelation 20:11-15) . . .. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. And the dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Ha′des gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. 14 And death and Ha′des were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire. . .

(Revelation 21:1-4) 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

We know the fire of God’s rage is exposing this system for what it is. We need to be patient because he desires none to be destroyed. Until he has gathered all the sheep together this system will not end but we do know the end is very very near so we need to stay focus on spiritual thing now more then ever.

(2 Peter 3:5-10) 5 For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and by those [means] the world of that time suffered destruction when it was deluged with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire and are being reserved to the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly men. 8 However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. 10 Yet Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a hissing noise, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be discovered. . .

Persecution Why And Who?

    If you don't read it how can you have faith.If You Worship In Truth You Will Be Persecuted.

Why Are People Persecuted?

  The bible warns us that those who are    pursuing true worship and righteousness will be persecuted. It

also warns us that the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one. Having this knowledge helps us to realize that the persecution will come from many directions even from our own family (1 John 5:19) (Jeremiah 12:6) Not all will be persecuted for righteous reasons. Some will be persecuted for the disgusting sins they have committed in disobedience to God. In doing so they have caused God’s good name to be smeared. (Romans 2:17-24) Those who have done those detestable things are reaping what they have sown. The sad part is those false Christians make it appear as if they are being persecuted and falsely accused. I know true worshippers do not profess to be guilty when they are innocent. They trust God to clear their name. Instead of confessing their sins and accepting the punishment they continue in their lies and are still leading others into their detestable form of worship. (Matthew 7:21-23) The bible warns us that not all professing to be followers of Jesus would make it especially those being lead by those false teachers. Not only do they get involved in their sins but by worshipping with them they show their approval of that behaviour.

We have the example of Joseph in the bible who was wrongly accused and convicted of rape with no solid evidence. He put his faith in God, he never admitted to something he did not do. Yet those who are smearing God’s name and are guilty, still will not admit their guilt even with evidence against them.

Those who choose to worship in truth and follow the path Jesus laid out for us will be persecuted just as he was. Because they choose the spiritual things and not the things of the world, in which we know lies in the power of the wicked one, he and his children will persecute true worshippers(John 15:18-19) (1 Peter 2:21-23) One very important aspect of true worship that professed Christians ignore is the importance of using God’s name Jehovah. Because Israel had forgotten God’s name Jesus and the disciples had to make it known again. (John 17:26, Psalm 83:18)

Some Methods And Types Of Persecution.

          1. There will be a belief that the teachings of the truth is a new teaching. (Mark 1:27) (Acts 17:19)

          2. Because you do not choose the way of the world but choose God’s way and do not pursue wealth or material things or whatever else the world has to offer people will be confused, even to the point of thinking you lost your mind.

            (1 Peter 4:34) (Mark 3:21) (2 Corinthians 4:11-13) They will even look down on a true worshipper. Jesus own family thought that he lost his mind.

          3. Because true worship does not get caught up in the commercialism of worship by using idols and symbols which by now most people know is not permitted by God, or getting involved in traditional celebrations that were not ordained by God. Or because Jesus followers refuses to bow down to those idols or images the world will hate and be angered by it. (Collossians 2:18) (Jeremiah 10:2-5)

            (Acts 19:23-28) For some their greed over rides their reasoning so they get angered because when people stop buying their images for false worship they lose money.

          4. Because followers of Jesus try their best to obey God and share the truth as he did it exposes false worship. Also those who want to continue in false worship do not want their sins exposed. They will have a form of Godly devotion like the pharisees so they will oppose true worship. (Jeremiah 20:10)

          5. Just as Jesus has done, true worshippers will follow his example. They will not tickle peoples ears but will tell them what they need to hear. Satan’s seed will not want to hear the truth. (2 Timothy 4:3) Because of the demonic influences in the world many peoples minds have been molded by them. (James 3:13-16) Others will persecute just because they have the power to. So they will scheme things against true worship. (Micah 2:1)

          6. Some would view disobedience to God as sport. So persecuting Jesus modern day followers would be sport to them. (Proverbs 10:23, Proverbs 14:6-9)

          7. The world does not want reminded that they will be held accountable so they reject God, so they are going to reject his messengers. (John 8:42-44)

          8. Most of the world would view God’s warnings as a joke. (Genesis 19:14) So just as in times previously they would not seek to know God but get caught up in the world and the destruction will come on them before they have a chance to do anything to protect themselves. (Matthew 17:28-30)

          9. They will try to discredit true worshippers by contradicting everything they say. (Acts 13:45)

          10. Because the world lacks faith they would put their confidence in the world. So they do not desire to pursue spiritual things. (1 John 4:4)

          11. People will try to publicly humiliate those who worship in truth. They will attempt to make a spectacle of them to cause embarrassment. (Hebrews 10:33) (1Peter 4:16))

          12. When they can’t get Jesus followers to give in to the world and it’s ways they will mock, beat, imprison, kill them and even force them to live in poverty. God is aware of what his worshippers are enduring and God won’t forget what they have done for his names sake. (Hebrews 11:35-38) (1 Peter 4:16)

          13. Some will persecute just because they have the power to. They scheme things against God’s people. (Micah 2:1)

Next we will discuss the outcome for those who are persecuting those in true worship.

Results Of The Persecution On Those Who Persecute.

            1. The opposer’s sins can reach a level that God will no longer listen to their prayers. He won’t even listens to the prayers of others praying for them. (Jeremiah 11:14)

            2. In the past God’s people seemed defenseless to the persecutors. They will view his modern day people as defenseless. The results will be the same, their total destruction. Sometimes at their own hands when God turns them against each other. (1 Chronicles 20:1-4, Ezekiel 38:8-10,18-23) (Exodus 14:21-27)

            3. When people try to hinder God’s work they eventually are the ones that get embarrassed because they eventually realize that the work is being accomplished by God. (Nehemiah 6:16)

            4. People will ignore God’s warnings just as they have in former times. When the destruction comes it will be sudden. People will be carrying on with life ignoring God’s messengers until it is too late. Just as Jehovah closed the door on the ark in Noah’s days he will close the door to the heavenly kingdom in our times. (Genesis 7:11-16) (Luke 13:24-30)

            5. Even the demons will not escape the one true God’s judgement. (Jude 6)

Next we will consider the results of the persecution on those who remain loyal to God.

Results Of Persecution For Those Worshipping In Truth.

              1. Most are aware we are in the last days, because of this man as a whole will have to endure many things. True worshippers will depend on our heavenly father for guidance and wisdom. So their hearts and minds would be protected. (Philippians 4:6,7)

              2. Just as in the days of the Baal worshippers it would be difficult to distinguish true worship from false worship it will be likewise in our days. True worshippers will know God and be able to clearly identify false worship. So they will not suffer the same fate that the Baal worshippers did. Those who ridicule and oppose true worship will. (1 Kings 18:21,39) (Hebrews 8:10) (2 Peter 3:3,4)

              3. Satan has already been defeated even more so with the witnessing of the truth. They did not and will not let Satan’s attacks stop them because of their love for Jehovah God and his only begotten son Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:11)

              4. When the calamity comes the obedient will be protected just as in times past. (Daniel 3:15,25) (2 Kings 6:17,18:26)

              5. When all things on earth are done away with true worshippers will not lose their treasure because they are stored were no one not even Satan can take them away. (Matthew 5:11,12) (Matthew 6:19-21)

              6. The persecution with Gods help will build endurance, wisdom and strength in in those being persecuted. (James 2:1-5)

              7. Those who have true faith in God will see his invisible qualities and will be protected so no weapon will succeed against them weather it is spiritual or physical. Even if they get imprisoned wrongly God will take care of them. (Isaiah 54:17) (Hebrews 11:1,2) (Acts 55:17-20)

              8. The obedient ones are blessed with authority over demons instead of Satan and the demons having authority over them. A good reason why Satan and the demons put pressure on people to disobey  God. (Luke 9:1)

              9. Not even death can separate us from God and his only begotten son Jesus Christ love. (Romans 8:38)

If you are not being persecuted you may want to check your standing with God. The only way to do this is to get to know him by studying your bible daily. If you are persecuting anyone, remember you reap what you sow. These list are in no way comprehensive. There are many other forms of persecution and many other ways God punishes and rewards people. Research your bibles and look for those hidden gems.
