Worldwide News: “THE TRUTH ABOUT NOAH!”

Apostle John wrote, “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, GOD shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the Words of the book of this prophecy, GOD shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book…”  (Revelation 22:18-19)

March 28th,  I saw a horrible picture about NOAH’S DELUGE and it was quite controversial and unbearable! I stand firmly upon GOD’S Holy Word! To paraphrase, “Noah’s was a godly, righteous, and blameless man…” Noah was not a baby killer and he was not insane. More importantly, God did not create talking, transformer rocks to protect Noah who was 500 years old when God commissioned him and to preach righteousness (I Peter 3:20; II Peter 2:5).

There were no talking-transformer rocks called “watchers” to protect Noah or the Line of Seth!  There were no babies born on the Ark, “Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.” (Genesis 10:1)  Don’t let Hollywood fool you! There is a curse upon any one who takes away or adds to the Bible!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Please allow me to outline a few Biblical facts about Noah and the Deluge!

(A) Genesis 6:8 states, “NOAH FOUND GRACE IN THE EYES OF THE LORD…Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with GOD.”   Out of all the people (kings, queens, dignitaries, giants, heroes, men of renown, mighty men, warriors, carpenters, metal smiths, and millions of men, women, boys, and girls) living on the Earth, nobody found grace (like Noah and his family – eight souls) in the sight of God!

Noah was a Preacher…the husband to one wife (her name is unknown)…the father of three sons (Shem, Ham, and Japheth)…and the father-in-law to the wives (names not given) of his sons. God called Noah (who was 500 years old) to preach and he preached for 100 years. Some folks can barely preach for 6 months before giving up!

Noah was 600 years old (not forty or fifty) when the Earth was flooded. Noah’s sons were about 100, 99, and 98 years (not 20, 17, and 6) and they helped to build the Ark. In addition, we can assume Noah’s wife was a little younger than he was and the wives of his sons were pretty close to the ages of their respective husbands.

(B) Genesis 6:13, 14, 17 states, “GOD SAID TO NOAH, THE END OF ALL FLESH IS COME BEFORE ME FOR THE EARTH IS FILLED WITH VIOLENCE THROUGH THEM AND I WILL DESTROY THEM WITH THE EARTH…MAKE [BUILD] AN ARK…I EVEN I DO BRING A FLOOD OF WATER UPON THE EARTH TO DESTROY ALL FLESH WHEREIN IS THE BREATH OF LIFE UNDER HEAVEN AND EVERY THING THAT IS IN THE EARTH SHALL DIE…”  God said it…and… that settles it for me!

Noah obeyed God’s instructions to the “T. ”  GOD HIMSELF SHUT THE DOOR OF THE ARK (not Noah) and IT RAINED (like hell) 40 days and nights upon the Earth! Nobody hacked their way into the Ark to hide in the dark! Nobody, attached themselves with cords or ropes out side of the Ark and rode it like the sea captain in Moby
Dick!  Eight human souls entered the Ark and eight souls left the Ark. During their stay in the Ark, nobody ventured upon the roof of the Ark to sun bathe!

The Bible states, “All flesh died that moved upon the earth, both fowl, cattle, beast, every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man. All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dray land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both….Noah only remained alive and they that were with him in the Ark. And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.”  (Genesis 7:21-24)  Nobody shot a gun into the air and none of the wives of Noah’s sons got their foot caught in a bear trap!

(C) Genesis 8:1-14 states, “GOD REMEMBERED NOAH AND EVERY LIVING THING …THAT WAS WITH HIM IN THE ARK…GOD MADE A WIND TO PASS OVER THE EQARTH AND THE WATER ASSWAGED…AND THE WATER RETURNED FROM OFF THE EARTH CONTINUALLY AND AFTER THE END OF THE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DAYS THE WQATERS WERE ABATED…AND THE ARK RESTED IN THE SEVENTH MONTH ON THE SEVENTEENTH DAY OF THE MONTH UPON THE MOUNTAIN OF ARARAT. ..AND THE WATERS DECREASED CONTINUALLY UNTIL THE TENTH MONTH UNTIL THE TOPS OF THE MOUNTAINS WERE SEEN…AND IT CAME TO PASS IN THE SIX HUNDREDTH AND FIRST YEAR IN THE FIRST MONTH, THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH, THE WATER DRIED UP FROMN OFF THE EARTH: AND NOAH REMOVED THE COVERING OF THE ARK, AND LOOKED, AND, BEHOLD, THE FACE OF THE GROUND WAS DRY. AND IN THE SECOND MONTH, ON THE SEVENTH AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE MONTH, WAS THE EARTH DRIED…”

How long was Noah & Company in the Ark? Approximately, one year and a few days (about 27 days or less – examine Genesis 7:10, 11; 8:14). Noah did not have a boat tied to the Ark and the Ark was not floating on the sea as it settled upon Mt. Ararat. God spoke to Noah and told him that judgment was finished and to leave the Ark.

(D) Genesis 9:1, 9-10, 15-17  states, “GOD BLESSED NOAH AND HIS SONS AND SAID UNTO THEM BE FRUITFUL, MULTIPLY, AND REPLENISH THE EARTH…BEHOLD I ESTABLISH MY COVENANT WITH YOU…YOUR SEED AFTER YOU…AND WITH EVERY LIVING CREATURE THAT IS WITH YOU….I WILL ESTABLISH MY COVENANT WITH YOU…NEITHER SHALL ALL FLESH BE CUT OFF ANY MORE BY WATERS OF A FLOOD…NEITHER SHALL THERE ANY MORE BE A FLOOD TO DESTROY THE EARTH…I DO SET MY BOW IN THE CLOUD AND I WILL LOOK UPON IT THAT I MAY REMEMBER THE EVERLASTING COVENANT BETWEEN GOD AND EVERY LIVING CREATURE OF ALL FLESH THAT IS UPON THE EARTH…THIS IS THE TOKEN [the RAINBOW] OF THE COVENANT WHICH I MAKE BETWEEN ME AND YOU AND EVERY LIVING CREATURE THAT IS WITH YOU, FOR PERPETUAL GENERATIONS.”

As you’ve just read, God blessed Noah, his sons, and their seeds to be. At that time, Noah did not have grandchildren and there were no human births on the Ark. Furthermore, the animals were not asleep (during the flood) and they did not harm one another. In other words, the mouths of the carnivorous animals were closed because they ate straw and drank milk!

(E) Genesis 9:20-27) states, “NOAH BEGAN TO BE AN HUSBANDMAN AND HE PLANTED A VINEYARD. AND HE DRANK OF THE WINE AND WAS DRUNKEN AND HE WAS UNCOVERED WITHIN HIS TENT [not a cave]. AND HAM, THE FATHER OF CANAAN SAW THE NAKEDNESS OF HIS FATHER AND TOLD HIS TWO BRETHREN WITHOUT. AND SHEM AND JAPHETH TOOK A GARMENT AND LAID IT UPON BOTH THEIR SHOULDERS AND WENT BACKWARDS AND COVERED THE NAKEDNESS OF THEIR FATHER AND THEY SAW NOT THEIR FATHER’S NAKEDNESS…AND NOAH AWOKE FROM HIS WINE AND HE KNEW WHAT HIS YOUNGER SON HAM HAD DONE UNTO HIM. AND HE SAID, CURSED BE CANAAN [sons of Ham] A SERVANT OF SERVANTS SHALL HE BE UNTO HIS BRETHREN. AND HE SAID BLESSED BE THE LORD GOD OF SHEM; AND CANAAN SHALL BE HIS SERVANT. GOD SHALL ENLARGE JAPHETH AND HE SHALL DWELL IN THE TENTS OF SHEM, AND CANAAN SHALL BE HIS SERVANT….”

After the flood, Noah planted a vineyard and he got drunk. I’m surprised no one else (besides Noah) got drunk after a cataclysmic blow to the Earth!  When folks are intoxicated they say crazy things and Noah was no exception. Frankly, no one can blame Noah for excessive drinking. Maybe, Noah opened his eyes and saw a rough vision of Ham laughing at him – we shall never know. Perhaps, Ham thought it was a funny sight to see his father butt-naked and drunk! For certain, Ham should have covered his father but he did not. Instead, he brought his father’s nakedness to his brothers’ attention. In retaliation, Noah cursed Ham and some call the curse a RACIAL PROPHECY!  Nonetheless, the curse was pronounced!   LIKEWISE,  ANY MAN OR WOMAN WHO TAKES AWAY OR ADDS TO GOD’S WORD IS CURSED!

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: I DEDICATE THIS SONG TO YOU, “CALLING MY NAME!”

The Bible says,  Come now and let us reason together, says the Lord,  though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow ;  though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”   (Isaiah 1:18)    You see, the Lord GOD loves us!  HE made us!  HE selected our souls and spirits from HIS well of  Souls and Spirits!  As you know our souls and spirits are eternal because they cannot die!  The LORD is  “Calling My Name!” 

BRING IT  DOWN ON HOME:    

I want you to understand the urgency of the  call to repentance COME NOW.  Tomorrow is not promised to any of us and we must not assume that we will wake up in the land of the living or be here next week or next year or ten years from now.  The Word tells us to say,  “If the Lord says so, I will do this or that…” 

I dedicate this song to YOU!   The song is by Hezekiah Walker and the soloist is Timiney Figueroa!   I love this song and I am the person she’s singing about!  How about you?  Ask yourself,  “…how many times do you do wrong and go your own way?”    Ms. Timiney Figueroa is a beautiful artist and I’ve read that she started singing as a child for the Lord.   Keep up the good work, Timiney!   Most of you know the musical genius of Hezekiah Walker!  Need I say more? 

Please go to You Tube.  The title of the song is,   CALLING MY NAME”   by   Hezekiah Walker and  the soloist is – Timiney Figueroa.   Allow me to paraphrase the words:  “How many times do I go against GOD’S will…then you forgive me but yet I still turn around and do the thing I shouldn’t do cause I belong to you and I know you will come through…I take advantage of your grace…” 

IN SUMMARY:  If this song has touched your heart (in any way), please read this,  “But if we walk in the light as HE is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of JESUS CHRIST.  HIS Son cleanses us from  all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and toi cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make HIM a liar,, and HIS Word is not in us.”  (I John 1:7-9)

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “TIME MANAGEMENT!”

The Bible says,  “Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear the Words of this prophecy and keeps the things which are written therein:  for the time is at hand.”  (Revelation 1:3)  The ALMIGHTY GOD is giving us a chance to repent, make an about-face, and to obey HIS Holy Word.  There are many ways GOD has to get our attention.  For instance, HE can suspend an 18 wheeler truck or a space rocket in mid air (without heavy steel cords or whatever) and place either object  directly over the mouth of the tallest volcano!  Can you imagine the fear this would invoke in the hearts of men and women all over the World?  It is wise for us to manage our time in the Lord!  This is the most important “TIME MANAGEMENT”  in the World!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:  

There is a reason CHRIST JESUS warns us to straighten up. Who in the World wants to burn in the Lake of Fire for ever and ever?    In fact, the Word says that no man knoweth the hour or day the Son of Man will return to the Earth  (including Jesus).  Therefore it behooves each of us to not only get ready but to be ready!

The Book of Romans states,  “For it is written, As  I  LIVE saith  the LORD, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to GOD… So then, every one of us shall give account of himself to GOD…let no man be a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother‘s way.”    (Romans 14:11-13)

Please note the Lord repeats Himself below (numbers *1, *2, and *5),  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  It is extremely critical for us to listen!  

(1)   The Church of Ephesus:   “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”  (Rev. 2:7a)   

(2)   The Church of Smyrna:    * “He that hath an ear,  let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”  (Rev. 2:11a)  

(3)   The Church of Pergamos:   “Repent or else, I will come unto thee quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.”  (Rev. 2:16)   

(4)   The Church of Thyatira:   “But hold fast what you have until I come.”  (Rev. 2:25)   

(5)    The Church of Sardis:     * “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.”  (Rev. 3:6)   

(6)   The Church of Philadelphia:   “Behold, I come quickly: hold that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”  (Rev. 3:11)

(7)  The Church of Laodicea:    * “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.”  (Rev. 2:22)  

Have a Blessed Day!    

Worldwide News: “THE GLORIFIED CHRIST!”

The Bible says,  “Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear the Words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written therein:  for the time is at hand.”    (Revelations 1:3)   When Jesus walked the Earth, He was 100  percent GOD, but He appeared in human form.  Unlike the rich and famous, JESUS was not guarded by secret police and strong body guards. Furthermore, the disciples were not armed with machetes, pistols,  or rifles (with the exception to Peter who had a small knife – the night JESUS was taken).  Anyone could go up to the Lord and ask questions, receive healing, or help. You all know what JESUS did! No wonder JESUS came in human form as THE GLORIFIED CHRIST”  would have shocked the whole World and/or been too much! Even worse, many folks would have died from heart attacks!     

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME: 

In the Book of Revelation, we see the GLORIFIED CHRIST in full splendor! What a site to behold. Can you imagine seeing THE GLORIFIED CHRIST JESUS?   Without passing out, who can stand before HIM? Upon HIS return, who will be able to stand? Are you cleaning up your life and getting ready?

(a)  He is standing in the midst of seven candlesticks…(b) He is clothed with a garment down to the foot and a girt about the paps with a golden girdle… (c)  His head and hairs are like wool and white as snow… (d) His eyes are as a flame of fire… (e) His feet are like unto fine brass as if they burn in a furnace… (f) His voice is the sound of many waters… (g) He holds seven stars in HIS right hand…(h) Out of His mouth is a sharp two-edged sword…(I) His countenance is as the sun shines in His strength. 

(1)   The Church of Ephesus:   “He that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks.”  (Rev. 2:1)   

(2)   The Church of Smyrna:    “He who is the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive.”  (Rev. 2:8)  

(3)   The Church of Pergamos:   “He which hath the sharp sword with two edges (out of His mouth).”  (Rev. 3:12)   

(4)   The Church of Thyatira:   “The Son of GOD, who hath His eyes like unto a flame of fire, and His feet are like fine brass.”   (Rev. 3:18)   

(5)    The Church of Sardis:     “He that hath the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.”  (Rev. 3:1)  

(6)   The Church of Philadelphia:   “He that is Holy, He that is True, He that hath the Key of David, He that openeth and no man shutteth; and shutteth and no man openeth.”  (Rev. 3:7) 

(7)  The Church of Laodicea:   “Write these things saith the Amen, the Faithful, and True Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of GOD.”  (Rev. 3:14)   

Have a Blessed Day!    

 

Worldwide News: “OVERCOMERS WILL…”

CHRIST JESUS said, “I am Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last…He that hath an ear, let him hear what the SPIRIT saith unto the CHURCHES…”   (Revelation 1:11;  3:22)  )    Although the LORD  gave Apostle John a  message to each individual Church in Asia Minor, the MESSAGE and the REWARDS for OBEDIENCE  are extended to ALL the CHURCHES.  Likewise,  THE WORD  and  THE REWARDS are for all generations of Christians – including us!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME: 

OVERCOMERS WILL RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING: 

(1) The Church of Ephesus:  “Eat of the Tree of Life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”  (Rev. 2:7)  

 (2) The Church of Smyrna: “Receive a crown of life and shall not be hurt of the second death.”  (Rev. 2:10d-11)

 (3) The Church of Pergamos:   Eat of the hidden manna and receive a white stone and in the stone a new a  new name written which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”   (Rev.  2:17b) 

(4)  The Church of Thyatira:  “Receive power to rule over the nations …with a  rod of iron as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers…and receive the Morning Star. ”   (Rev. 2:26-28)   

 (5)  The Church of Sardis:   “Be clothed in white raiment and  his name will not be blotted out of the Book of Life.  Christ will confess his  names before  God and His angles.”   (Rev. 3:5)  

(6)  The Church of Philadelphia “Be a pillar in the temple of God, and he will go no more out   [never be evicted]  and Christ will write  [tattoo]  upon him the name of God;  the name of the city of New Jerusalem; and the new name of Christ .”    (Rev. 3:12)  

(7) The Church of Laodicea: “Be granted permission to sit  down with Christ and His Father in His throne.”  (Rev. 3:21)

Worldwide News: “A Check List or Cheat Sheet for all CHRISTIANS!”

JESUS  said to Apostle John,“Fear not:  I am the first and the last…I am He that liveth and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore…I have the keys of hell and of death. Write these things…”   (Revelation 1:17-18)

THE SCENARIO:  If you have ears, please listen to what the Spirit is saying to us!   Try to imagine, you are there (invisible) with Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos. Can you see CHRIST JESUS?  He is standing in the midst of seven candlesticks…He is  clothed with a garment down to the foot and a girt about the paps with a golden girdle…His head and hairs are like wool and white as snow…His eyes were as a flame of fire…His feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace…His voice as the sound of many waters…He held seven stars in HIS right hand…Out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword…and His countenance was as the sun shines in His strength.

There is no other power on Earth or in outer space like our GOD! There are  no make believe characters ( Marvel, Transformers, ten headed dragons, dinosaurs, or Kongs) to compare with our GOD!  Play day is over.

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME: 

You may call this a check list or cheat sheet for all Christians.  It does not matter what you label it but take heed as these are the things CHRIST JESUS is speaking to the entire Church (especially to the Pastors – the Angels of the Seven Churches).

(1)  “REPENT – THOU HAS LEFT THY FIRST LOVE.”  This is the message to the Church of Ephesus.  They were filled with good works, labor, patience, and despise for evil workers. In fact, they tried and tested self-appointed apostles and they proved them to be liars.  Yet, the Church of Ephesus became so self-righteous that they forgot to self-examine themselves. The Lord said,  “…thou art fallen, repent, and do thy first works or else – I come quickly to remove thy candlestick…”  (Rev. 2:4-5)

When we first got saved, we were very conscientious to walk in  the light. Now, we lay down our holy cloaks to deviate to the right or left (like the Nicolaitanes – Gnostics who committed adultery, fornication, and immoral acts, etc. ).  Sometimes, we allow the lust of the flesh to take control – we do well for days, weeks, months, and years until we fall into temptation.

We get tired of being goodie-to-to.  Then, the devil tells us,  “…go ahead…try it…no body is looking…no body will blame you… have some fun as you deserve it… ”  Here is the devil’s biggest punch line,  “God will forgive you this once because He is merciful!”  Unfortunately, we sin again and again and again.  How do you know if you will make it back in one piece?  There are some sinful acts which may bring about the death sentence. Thus, we all need to perform regular self-examinations of our walk with the Lord!

Overcomers will:   Eat of the Tree of Life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.

(2)  “COMMENDATION!”  This is the message to the Church of Smyrna.  The Lord said,  “…I know thy works, tribulation, poverty (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which are of the synagogue of Satan.”  (Rev. 2:4-5)

We are learning to work elbow to elbow with unbelievers without allowing their attitudes to affect our Christian beliefs. Truly, we are no better than unbelievers but we are saved by the Grace of the Lord JESUS!  Practically the majority of television programs and movies are filled with perversion, murders, drugs, or whatever.  We see talent scouts and movie producers grabbing nobodies (off the streets) and turning them into overnight successes while a true Christian believer may be unemployed, null, and void.  We see folks making packs with the devil, practicing witchcraft, and satanic worship.  As Christians, some of us may be poor as church mice but we are rich in CHRIST JESUS and mansions are being prepared for us because He said so! 

The Lord is saying,  “Fear none of those things which thou shall suffer…you will be tried and tested…be faithful unto death…”  (Rev. 2:10)   We should expect to see flamboyance waved in our faces and certain people with tons of talents to no talents skyrocketed to the top of the charts for taking off their clothes, wagging their naked bodies before the cameras, and sticking out their tongues like dogs. But don’t you worry and don’t try to figure it out!  Why?  GIANTS DO FALL!  Don’t you forget that young teenager (David) used a slingshot and a pebble to bring down Goliath of Gath!

Overcomers will:   Receive a crown of life and shall not be hurt of the second death.

(3)  “REPENT – THOU HAST THEM THERE THAT HOLD THE DOCTRINE OF BALAAM  AND THE DOCTRINE OF THE NICOLAITANES…” (Rev. 2:12-13)   This is the message to the Church of Pergamos.  Again, we see false doctrines (like today) in the Church and the Lord hates these things!  They held private parties (orgies), ate unlawful things, committed fornication, and they did so in the name of God! In fact, Satan’s seat was in Pergamos and one of the Lord’s servants (Antipas) was sacrificed on Satan’s altar. Matter-of-fact, they stuffed Antipas inside the carcass of a bull and they burned the two on the altar!

The LORD wants PASTORS to clean up the Church because the Church belongs to HIM!  The LORD wants PASTORS as Shepherds not businessmen and entrepreneurs trying to make a million dollars! The LORD does not want greasy PASTORS peddling the Gospel for a fast buck!  The LORD does not want slick PASTORS seducing the women or men folk in the Church because the Church is not the house of whores!  The LORD does not want PASTORS winking and blinking like the wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood!” 

The LORD paid for the Church with HIS Blood!  Contrary,  Pastors think the Church belongs to them because they pay mortgages.  Pastors want to be billionaires, build bigger homes and vacations homes, own several cars and airplanes,  pastor two or more churches, collect  more money, more tithes, take multiple offerings, write books (written by ghost writers and researchers for them), sale DVDs,  feature themselves as soloists, and act in movies.  So, they preach popular sermons or whatever itching ears want to hear.   Be careful because the Lord says,  “Repent or ELSE, I will come unto thee quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth!”  (Rev. 2:16)

Overcomers will:   Eat of the hidden manna and receive a white stone and in the stone a new name written which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. Certainly, you will be allowed to tell your new name to others.

(4)  “REPENT – THOU HAST SUFFERED THAT  WOMAN JEZEBEL (WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS) TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION…”  (Rev. 2:20)   This is the message to the Church of Thyatira which was in terrible condition.   Please keep in mind there were some Christians who did not practice false doctrines.  

Again, we see the Lord is not pleased but He is merciful. In fact, the Lord gave Jezebel a chance to repent but she did not! As you will recall, General Jehu (an Israelite who later became king) entered the City of Jezreel  and he ordered Queen Jezebel’s eunuchs to threw her out of the palace window to her death! The dogs ate her leaving the skull, feet and the palm of her hands. More over, her death and her husband’s (king Ahab) was prophesized by Elijah (read II Kings 9:30-37).

Today, the Spirit of Jezebel still exists in Church. Must I keep repeating myself?  As in the early Church, we have Jezebels in the Church who are not living according to the Word of God!  Yet, Pastors allow them to teach false doctrines and worse.  Pastors turn a mute ear and their backs on certain reports concerning unlawful activities within the Church!  Maybe some of the Pastors are not living holy lives! This mess must be brought out in the open and the culprits must repent or get out!  

The Lord said, I will cast Jezebel into a bed with them that commit adultery with her and all of them into great tribulation – unless they repent of their deeds!”  (Rev. 2:22)  As you know, some hypocrites (including Pastors)  are being caught red-handed in bed with their lovers!  The Lord said, “I am HE which searches the reins and hearts and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”   (Rev. 2:23)

Overcomers will:   Receive power to rule over nations…with a road of iron as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers.

(5)  “REPENT – REMEMBER HOW THOU HAST RECEIVED, HEARD, AND HOLD FAST…”  (Rev. 3:3a)   This is the message to the Church of Sardis.  Again, there were a few Christians who did not defile their garments.  However, the rest of them were guilty and   “…full of dead works…”   (Rev. 3:1)  The Lord said, If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee…“  (Rev. 3:3b)

Today (like the early Church), we have members full of dead works as they work on this committee and that committee into the wee hours of the morning.  They are making a name for  themselves (Sister So-so and Brother So-so) but their works are DEAD!    Some of us will pass certain folks in Church and leap across the pews to shake hands with our groupies!  Some of us don’t want to sit next to certain people in Church!  Some Church folks dislike each other!

All of our works will be tried by GOD’S fire! Will our works withstand the test?  We cannot count kingdom work in terms of dollars – forget that because GOD is rich and HE owns everything!   Instead, the goal of the Church is to save souls!

Overcomers will:   Be clothed in white raiment…their names will not  be blotted out of the Book of Life…and CHRIST JESUS will confess their names before God and His angels.   (Rev. 3:5)

(6)  “COMMENDATION!”    The Lord said“THOU HAS KEPT THE WORD OF MY PATIENCE, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION WHICH SHALL COME UPON ALL THE WORLD TO TRY THEM THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH…”  (Rev. 3:10)   This is the message to the Church of PhiladelphiaThe Lord said, I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it for thou hast a little strength and hast kept My Word, and hast not denied My Name.”  (Rev. 3:8)

Isn’t it wonderful to know that GOD sees us!  In spite of our nerdy strengths, GOD is still blessing us and opening doors.  If you are unemployed, null, and void, keep looking up to Heaven.  The LORD JESUS has not forgotten you!   More so, GOD WILL KEEP YOU IN THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION!  The Holy Spirit lives  inside of all believers and HE speaks in our inner ears and gives us power to resist the devil!   Praise-the-Lord!  

The Lord said,  “Behold, I come quickly:  hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”  (Rev. 3:11)   Therefore, you ain’t got to worry about the bills or what other people think about you – just keep on pressing forward towards your high calling!

Overcomers will:   Become a pillar in the temple of GOD…never be evicted…receive God’s name, Jesus’ new name,  and the name of New Jerusalem (which cometh down out of Heaven) to be tattooed upon them…  (Rev. 3:12)

(7)  “REPENT – THOU ART NEITHER COLD NOR HOT:  I WOULD RATHER SPUE (SPIT) THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH…”   (Rev. 3:14-16)   This is the message to the Church of Laodicea.  They were rich believers. Like the top wealthy of our society, the Laodiceans lived in luxury homes, palaces, with fine furnishings, servants, beautiful clothes, etc.  They did not concern themselves with the poor or the issues of the day – unless such things threatened their livelihood or living standards.  In other words, their attitudes were whatever!  

The Lord said, Because thou sayest, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing – knowest not that thou art wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked…”  (Rev. 3:17)  

The Lord said, Behold, I stand at the door and knock:  if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.“    (Rev. 3:20)

The Lord said, As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten:  be zealous therefore, and repent.“    (Rev. 3:19)

Overcomers will:   Be allowed to sit in the presence of  God and Christ in the throne room…“  (Rev. 3:21)   Isn’t that wonderful!  We may not be allowed to sit in the Oval Office (in the White House, USA) or the Taj Mahal (INDIA);  but,  the ALMIGHTY GOD will allow believers to be in HIS presence (without a cover charge).  

Have a Blessed Day!

If you think not look at the news on the Worldwide Internet. This message is not for you if you don’t need help. Rather, this message is for YOU that need help and  believe in the LORD JESUS CHRIST!   We need something stronger than Tide and Bleach to cleanse away our sins!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Since Lucifer’s arrival, the mess (stealing, killing, lying, kidnapping, torturing, sexual crimes, etc.) has not stopped and it ain’t gonna stop until JESUS puts the devil under HIS FEET!

 

(A) Overcome WHAT? Listen to the Word of God, Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea!  For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he know ether that he hat but a short time.”  (Revelation 11:12)

There are many folks who do not believe in God. Instead, they worship the devil. Although they know the devil is evil, they still deny there is good and the truth – GOD is GOOD! What a paradox – folks can accept evil behavior (and as evil workers of iniquity) do good unto the people they like and love. On the other hand, they cannot accept the reality of PURE RIGHTEOUSNESS!  As you just read, the devil is here in the earth and sea!  Furthermore, as the “dark prince”  the devil is in the air! 

 

(B) HOW to Overcome!  We are at WAR! This war is between good and evil and it is nonstop. You cannot fight nuclear weapons with forks, knives and pistols! It takes supernatural power to fight supernatural opponents.

(1) As Christians, “We are washed from our sins in JESUS’ own Blood.”  (Revelations 1:5)  There are only two teams – the right one and the wrong oneLets talk about the right team!  The first step to believe Jesus is the Son of GOD and GOD raised Him (the first begotten of the dead). And we are not only washed in the BLOOD OF THE LAMB,  we are covered throughout our entire lives. One day, we (as Christians) shall receive our pay – everlasting life and dwell in the presence of The TRUINE GOD!  Apostle John says, “…every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him; and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him.” (Revelation 1:7)

(2) As Christians, we know,  “…no weapon formed against us shall prosper.”  Unfortunately, we cannot see demonic, spiritual weapons aimed at us. If you are drinking hard  or drunk, there is no telling what you are looking at.  I know a man who sees dragons and he ain’t drunk!

We need THE LORD and the full magnitude of HIS power. Apostle John paints a picture of The Lord and He is not carrying a staff in hand (like the shepherds who herd their flocks) and HE is not wearing sandals. For the record, John was not drunk (full of wine) or smoking drugs.  Apostle  John heard the Lord’s voice, “ I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet…”  (Revelations 1:10)  Check this out, “His [JESUS} eyes were as a flame of fire and on His head were many crowns…And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called THE WORD OF GOD…And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses…And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron…”  (Revelation 19:12-15)  You cannot go wrong with the Cleansing Agent of the LORD’S BLOOD!   Now, you can testify as you go through this life!

Have a Blessed Day!
