    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS PART 11 – RAPTURE 8 (JOHN 14)

    John.14: 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;

    ‘In receiving us to Himself we become the Bride of Christ’

    Its every important to note that, just as Moses build the habitation for God in Exo, 15, even so Jesus build a habitation for God through the Spirit (Eph.2:22-23).

    God speaking to Moses in said Exo. 19:4

    “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles wings and brought (received) you to MYSELF” KJV.

    This is God’s redemptive work in favour of the children of Israel when they were in captivity in Egypt.

    God spoke to Abraham that his seed will be slaves for 400 years, but that he will redeem them “…And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge said God: and after that, shall they come FORTH, and SERVE ME IN THIS PLACE” Acts 7:6 –7 KJV.

    So here was a restoration to fellowship with God after a broken relationship as slaves.

    Just as Adam broke relationship with God, Christ restored the relationship of (Father-Son, Husband-Wife relationship) thereby setting us free from sin.

    This is what God meant when He said He is to receive us unto Himself.

    He told Moses “I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt. And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land-” Exo. 3:7-8 KJV.

    Moses in turn said to Israel

    “hath God assayed to go and take Him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations by signs, and by wonders, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the Lord your God did for you’ in Egypt before your eyes?” Deut. 4:34 KJV.

    Now, these miracles that God used in Egypt-the terrors, wars etc, to deliver His people were the invisible manifestations of God’s presence through a vessel-Moses, in Egypt.

    Just like He told Moses “…I am (God Himself) come down to deliver them out of the hands of the Egyptians” Exodus. 3:8. KJV.

    We see here that God did not physically come down to Egypt; rather, He empowered Moses-a chosen vessel for the hour, with the Holy Ghost to go.

    The Magicians of Pharaoh confessed it and said:

    “…This is “THE FINGER OF GOD, –” (Exo.8:19 KJV).

    And “The finger of God” is the power of the Holy Spirit with which Jesus cast out devils (Luke 11:20).

    This also is what was termed “EAGLE’S WINGS” in Exodus 19:4.( Compre Isa.40:31..)

    “Pentecost the reality of the Eagles wing “

    On the day of Pentecost, Peter said of Jesus

    “ye men of Israel hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs…” Acts 2:22 KJV.

    So, Just as Moses brought out Israel from Egypt through signs and wonders, so also was Christ anointed to deliver mankind out of the bondage of sin through signs and wonders.

    Just as the Lamb was killed in Egypt for their redemption,(Exo.12) even so Christ is our Passover Lamb.(1Cor.5:7,John.1:29)

    This Passover experience is followed by the out pouring of the Holy Spirit, on the day of Pentecost to empower His Body – the redeemed ones to go forth again with signs and wonders for the continuation of that “—which He (Jesus) began both to do and teach” (Acts 1:1 KJV)

    Where is Jesus taking us to?.

    “…I will come again and RECEIVE YOU UNTO MYSELF…” Christ is receiving us unto HIMSELF-Christ is a PERSON and not unto a geographical location.

    It is to the person of Christ that the church is being received. The word RECEIVE in Greek root is “PARA”: near, from beside, with, act, in and ‘LAMBANO’ –to take (in very many applications, or act, to get hold of.

    The two words joined together is ‘PARALAMBANO’ which means to receive near, i.e. ASSOCIATE WITH ONESELF (in any familiar or intimate act or relation).

    So what is that? Simply that Christ is taking us unto Himself as a bride from this present evil world through the atoning blood. So we read

    “…who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world (age)…” Galatians 1: 4 KJV. (See I Peter 2: 24, I Tim. 2:6).

    So what’s wrong with the world (age)?

    First of all, he meant the Jews, and their system of carnal ordinances; and judgments by which they could not live; (Eze 20:25); and the whole of their ecclesiastical economy, which was a burden neither they nor their fathers were able to bear, Acts 15:10. The disciples were to get out of that.

    The secondly, this present world(age) of the unredeemed, is evil it is under the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience”-Eph. 2:2. (2 Cor. 4:4, Acts 26:18. John 12:31).

    Therefore the redeemed are moved from that age to the kingdom age.

    Now, “kingdom of God”, doesn’t mean a future “Millennium reign”. But rather a transition from the age in which we are now in as it is under the influence of the wrong spirit.

    So, any spirit-filled son of God, has been brought to this place – the kingdom age, hence we read: “I pray that you will be grateful to God for letting you have PART (a place) in what He has promised His people in the kingdom of light, God rescued us from the dark power of Satan and BROUGHT US INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON, Who forgives our sins and sets us free” Col. 1:12 – 13 CEV

    We see then that the work has been accomplished through the blood of Jesus. And also the kingdom which is a people washed in the blood of the lamb is well and alive on earth today.

    The Holy Spirit which is the principal factor of the kingdom is here, (Math.12:28).

    So, as He redeem us with His blood and washes us with the word. (John 17:17), He is taking a people to Himself from amongst the rest of mankind.

    Our being received by God is wrapped up in Christ’s fervent love for the Church

    “Christ ‘so loved the church and gave Himself (atoning blood) for it; THAT HE might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word; that He might PRESENT it to HIMSELF a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things but that it should be holy and with out blemish” Eph 5:25 – 27 KJV.

    You see it? The word ‘present’ is ‘PARISTANO’ (Grk) meaning to stand beside i.e. to exhibit, proffer, (spec.) recommend, to be at hand (or ready) etc.

    It is the same idea as ‘Paralambano’ which means to take to ones side as a bride. This two words-Paristano and Paralambano accurately gave us the mind of Christ for His Church. When the job of cleansing is thoroughly done on her, the Church by her Husband (Christ), she will then be EXHIBITED by Him for the world to see.

    She will be as a prepared bride adorned for her husband (Rev. 21:2; 9).

    This is the full manifestation of the sons of God talked about in Romans 8:19. The ‘Adornment’ is the glory of the husband (Christ), which she has taken upon herself. (Rev.21:11).

    In receiving us to Himself, Christ is taking a bride for Himself from amongst men. He is taking a nation from the nations, -a single family under heaven with the name (nature) of the father written on their foreheads (Rev.14:1 = having the mind and wisdom of God and no longer the nature and wisdom of Adam that is earthly and satanic).

    A free people to fly in the air; in the Spirit of the father where He dwells, ‘the eagle saints’.

    So, here we are talking of a relationship of a husband and a wife. “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.( 1 Cor 6:17).

    Friends, we are married to the Christ of God as a Bride, and this happened when He took us (married us, received us to Himself) on the day of Pentecost.

    This has nothing to do with a people being taken up to a geographical location above the sky by supposed Rapture.

    Let’s stop this deception!

    “…where I am, there ye may be also…” Next .

    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS PART 10 – RAPTURE 7 (JOHN 14)

    John.14: 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;

    THE “SECOND APPEARING” IS A REVELATION OF CHRIST WITHIN

    A mere look at the above, one might think that the “come again” that Jesus talked about implies the popular “SECOND COMING” that is widely anticipated in the church today. But that is not what Jesus really meant like we said in the previous post.

    He was merely promising the disciple His coming as the Holy Spirit to unite with them after His death and, resurrection and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

    So His coming as the Holy Spirit was the Fulfillment of the Father’s Promise to

    “Return Again” in John 14:3.

    John 14: 16 “A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

    The little while is the period of his death and his resurrection, walking with them in a glorified body for forty days before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the fiftieth Day. For,

    “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” ( 2 Cor.3:17)

    So He came back to them as the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. The passage therefore was not about a physical being coming down from Heaven.

    That means, the spirit has taken over as a new dispensation of God coming to His people. The Spirit will now demonstrate the right of Jesus, to the title “son of God” (John. 10:33; 19:7).

    His going to the Father will prove that He is God’s son (John 13: 1; 20:17); therefore He is one with the Father. (John. 17:5).

    His ascension shows where he came from, the Father (John.6: 38, 62; 8:42).

    And (He) that descended (as a human being) is the same also that ascended up, far above all heavens (realms of spiritual existence) that He might fill all things” (Eph.4: 10) with Himself.

    Why? Because He is now spirit, He couldn’t fill all things with Himself as a human being, but as spirit now he can.You see the difference?

    This is why a corn of wheat must fall to the ground and die in order to bring forth much fruit (John12: 24…

    So know we no man after the flesh, even though we have known Christ after the flesh. 2Cor.5:16.Ampl.

    A “SECOND TIME” APPEARING TO THOSE WHO LOOK FOR HIM.

    “…unto them that look for him shall be appear THE SECOND TIME without sin unto salvation” Hebrews 9:28.

    Here again is anther passage that the church has misapplied to mean Christ supposed “SECOND CO0MING”:

    To start with, the Book of Hebrew chapter 9 deals with the priesthood ministry of Jesus. Note that, and according to the above Scripture, Christ shall appear “unto them that look for Him” and not to everybody as the church today has made us believe.

    The word again is “second”, so when was the “first”? The first appearing is found in verses 24 -26.

    “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us

    25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

    26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world (End of the Old covenant): but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself?”

    Now, consider this in the old order, the atoning sacrifice was not accomplished merely by the killing of the animal at the brazen altar.

    The blood had to be taken by the high priest to the Most Holy place, where it was presented to God by the high priest.

    This is exactly what Jesus did for us at Calvary – a High Priest; He presented the blood of atonement before God. This is the reason He told Mary “Touch me not” because He had to ascend to the Father (John 20:19) to perfect the work of atonement without being defiled/contaminated.

    So, how does this apply to us today? Christ as a High Priest did not offer His blood in a physical literal TEMPLE but rather in the MOST HOLY PLACE that is WITHIN US. We are now the temple of God and also, one not made with hands-the type that God dwells in (2 Cor. 6: 16; Heb.8:1-3).

    We are the tabernacle in which the Lord has pitched His tenth. It is right in us that God dwells. It is our heart that the blood of Christ-His life and consciousness is now brought to in order to perfect our conscience

    (Heb 9: 9) The OT was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience”

    ” 1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins (Heb 10:1-3).

    So “…Christ through the eternal spirit (Holy Ghost) offered Himself without spot to God, purge your

    (our) conscience from dead work (that is the removing of our sin consciousness, and animal sacrifices ) to serve the living God …having obtained eternal redemption for us” (Heb.9:14).

    Therefore, we now receive the Christ CONSCIOUSNESS in place of sin consciousness as the law of the spirit of Christ is written in our hearts and minds (Heb.8:10; Rom. 8:2).

    THE “SECOND APPEARING” IS A REVELATION OF CHRIST WITHIN

    “…unto them that look for him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation “-Hebrews 9:28 KJV.

    The word “appear” used in the above Scripture is from the Greek word “optanomai.”

    It means to appear or show.

    It is the same word used in Acts 7:30, 35 to describe the appearance of the angel to Moses in the “burning bush”.

    Now, if Moses’ burning bush experience is anything to go by, we can see that there was no physical appearance of God to Moses. Yet, God’s presence was manifested to him and he was ordained as a deliverer to the children of Israel.

    Also, the same word, ‘appear’ surfaces in the words of Jesus Christ to Paul during his conversion on his way to Damascus:

    “But rise and stand upon thy feet, for I have “APPEARED unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister…” Acts 26:16.

    The point here is this; Paul never saw Jesus in the physical. What he saw was a light from heaven as he himself said.

    Now, see the puzzle. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians church (1 Cor. 9:1) asked:

    “AM I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus?”

    So did Paul really saw Jesus physically with his natural eyes? I think the answer is NO! Once again, what he saw was a blinding light from heaven as he himself said. Look at what he said again,

    “… but when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb. And called me by His grace, TO REVEAL HIS SON IN me that I may preach Him among the heathen I confer not with flesh and Blood…” Gal.1:15-16.

    So we see that the experience he had on the way to Damascus was actually a revelation of Christ in him?

    Take special note of the word “in” as used in the passage. The revelation he had was IN him and not TO him.

    “To him” would mean that Christ showed up physically and that would be inaccurate.

    Beloved, can you see now that the “second time appearing” of Jesus is in those that look for Him, in order that He may complete His work of atonement thereby commissioning them?

    We are not just in Christ, Christ is also IN US and He is our hope of glory! (Col. 1:27). Christ dwells IN US, we are His Temple. His Spirit and our spirit have become one (1 Cor.6: 17 )

    “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit”

    There is a power at work ‘IN US’ according to Eph. 3:20: “…unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the POWER that worketh IN US.”

    This POWER is the Holy Ghost-the Spirit of Christ, Himself who dwells IN US.

    UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM

    “…unto them that look for him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation “-Heb. 9:28 KJV.

    The word “look” in the above passage is from the Greek word “apekdechomaia.” It means to expect fully; to look (wait) for.

    That’s the word translated “looking” in Hebrews 12:2 which says:

    “Looking away (from all that will distract) to Jesus, who is the leader and the source of our faith (giving the first incentive for our belief) and is also its finisher (bringing it to maturity and perfection)… “AMP.

    The reason Christ is appearing a second time “unto them that look for him” is to make perfect-bring to maturity and finish the work of atonement He had begun in them.

    Look at it;

    Rom.8: 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

    24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?”

    Since

    “..we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in heaven, and from it also we earnestly and patiently await [the coming of] the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [as] Savior,

    21 Who will transform and fashion anew the body of our humiliation to conform to and be like the body of His glory and majesty, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself.Phil.3:20-21 Amp.

    So you see people, what we are waiting for which you called his “second coming” is the transformation of our bodies like unto his glorious body of resurrection.

    This is what is meant by

    “51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victor”.(1Cor.15:51-54)

    So Christ is not coming to catch away people but to transformed them, and it is actually done within, for salvation is spirit soul and Body ..

    Someone says but what of “…and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”

    That’s Next…

    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS PART 9 – RAPTURE 6 (JOHN 14)

    JESUS PROMISED TO COME AGAIN

    “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself…” John 14:3. KJV.

    A mere look at the above, one might think that the “come again” that Jesus talked about implies the popular “SECOND COMING” that is widely anticipated in the church today.

    But was that what Jesus really had in mind when He said those words?

    Two questions surfaces here: Was there a “first coming?”

    And if there is going to be a “second” coming,” when was the first? Because if there is a “second,” then there must have been a “first.”

    CHRIST “COMINGS” THROUGH THE AGES.

    Christ “coming” is simply a revelation of Himself to mankind. It has been from time of creation.

    In Micah 5:2 we read “But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings (Plural) forth have been from of old from everlasting” KJV

    Here the “goings” are in the plural form because He, as the Everlasting Father and Mighty God, ( Isaiah 7:13-14; 9:6-7) has always being and has been coming.

    Carefully viewed, that which we called “first coming” was only the creator manifesting Himself to mankind for the work of redemption.

    1 Tim.3: 16 “And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory”.

    1 Tim 3:16 “And great and important and weighty, we confess, is the hidden truth (the mystic secret) of godliness. He [God] was made visible in human flesh, justified and vindicated in the [Holy] Spirit, was seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, [and] taken up in glory”. AMP

    (He became flesh and dwelt amongst men (John 1:14; 1 John 1:1-2) as Emmanuel-God with us) in order to restore us to the position Adam was before the fall.

    Is this coming what you called a first coming?

    Consider these questions:

    Who came to Adam in (Gen. 3:8) God did!

    Who came down to destroy the Tower of Babel? (Gen.11:1-9) God.

    Who came to Abraham in Gen 18?

    So God-Christ (I and my Father are one” (John 10:30) has been coming to mankind.

    And for every coming there was and is a purpose tied to it.

    CHRIST IN GOD THE FATHER

    “SECOND COMING”?

    God came to Abraham (Gen 17:1) and He returned unto Sarah-Abraham’s wife; leading to the conception of Isaac-the promised son, (Gen 17:19; 18:10; 21:1-2).

    God came to Moses in the Burning bush to take to Himself the children of Israel “…God will surely visit you…” (Exodus. 13:15-16;)

    God came to the children of Israel at Mount Sinai, (Exodus 19:9-18).

    God also came to Shiloh in the days of Samuel.

    Severally, he has been coming, and in a human form, was one of such comings. And so that can’t be his first coming if am right.

    Now, in the NT we have various shades of his comings which I think the Church doesn’t take note of e.g. .

    Math. 24:27 HE COMES as lightening

    Math. 25:6 HE COMES as a Bridegroom

    Math. 25:31-34 HE COMES as a King

    Mark 13: 26 HE COMES with clouds

    John 14:18 HE COMES to His saints

    John 14:3 HE COMES to receive the saints unto Himself, a person

    2 Thess.1:7-8 HE COMES as a flaming fire

    2 Thess. 1:10 HE COMES in His saints

    Phil. 3: 20-21 HE COMES in Resurrection power

    James 5: 7-8 HE COMES as the Rain

    James 5:9 HE COMES as the Judge

    Jude 14 HE COMES with the saints

    Rev.1:7 He comes in the CLOUDS

    Rev .2:28 HE COMES as the Morning Star

    Rev. 19:11, 14 HE COMES on a white horse

    Rev. 16:15 HE COMES as a thief

    And above all, in the book of Malachi 3:1-3, He comes as “the refiner’s fire”.

    Which of this could be the “SECOND coming”?

    Now, who came to your door (heart) to knock? (Rev. 3:20).

    And did you open unto Him?

    Will you call that a “Second Coming” or a “first”?

    When Jesus told Judas that “If anyone love me, they will obey me, then my Father will love them, and we will COME to them and live in them” (John. 14:20-23). Is there a fulfillment of this coming in the life of His people now or not? And if so, which of the comings that you know is this?

    For Him to make His abode in you, means you are His temple. (2 Cor. 6: 16; 13:5).

    “COME AGAIN” is a fulfillment of a promise.

    “I will come again” and receive you unto myself…” John.14:3 KJV.

    Mind you there is no where “SECOND” and “COMING” are joined together in the Bible, this is the only scripture being alluded to.

    The words, “I will come again” in the above Scripture is rendered: “I shall return” in the Jerusalem Bible Translation.

    Note it , that when the word, “return” or “Again” surfaces in the Bible, it usually speaks of the fulfillment of a promise or in the context of a promise yet to be fulfilled. For example:

    “…I will return unto thee, according to the time of life and Sarah shall have a son” (Gen.18:10-14 ) ,the promise to Abraham of the Birth of Isaac. That Sarah his wife would bear him a son, Isaac at a set time when He (God) would return.

    Now, we never saw God physically came before Isaac was born, but as long as Isaac was born, the lord came.

    The coming of the Holy Spirit was the Fulfillment of the Father’s Promise to;

    “Return Again” in John 14:3.

    John 14: 16 “A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

    17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?

    18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.

    19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?

    20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. = (The pains of Jesus leaving will turn to Joy when the Holy spirit is poured out )

    21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

    (The manchild born into the world, was the Church that was birthed in the upper room when the Holy Spirit came down upon the 120).

    Christ is the same as the Holy Spirit.. See it..

    for” – God hath made (promoted, exalted) that same Jesus (the human figure that you use to know) whom ye have crucified both LORD and CHRIST” (Acts 2:36),

    “because I (Jesus) go to the father (who is Sprit. John. 4:24) and you see me no more (John 16:10) (as a human being).

    2 Cor.3: 17 “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”

    The Comforter, The Holy Spirit is Jesus.

    Jonh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

    “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name,(Nature) he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”.(John 14:26)

    “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me”:( Joh 15:26)

    “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you”( John 16:7)

    And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

    9.Of sin, because they believe not on me; = (as the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world)

    10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and YE SEE ME NO MORE; = (as a physical being) (John.16: 8-10)

    Friends, I will “COME AGAIN” was a promise of the Holy Spirit fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost, with the birthing of the new Testament Church .

    It was NOT a RAPTURE promise.

    But is Christ coming? why not, He is coming. Just follow on.

    THE PREPARED PLACE

    John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions:.. go to prepare a place for you”

    It’s important we clean ourselves from all forms of the ‘theology and traditions of men’ and follow “the ‘Spirit of truth’ for He is the greatest teacher of ALL THINGS (See John 14:16 – 26).

    Then shall we be free indeed, to serve our Father in spirit and in truth. For that is what God the Father is looking for- (John4: 23-24)

    We have seen that the rooms are in the “Father’s house” and not in “heaven” above. Nowhere in the Bible is heaven referred to as the “Father’s house.” The Father’s house is built in heaven but it is not in heaven. Please note again that heaven as a location was never mentioned in John 14 to have Mansions, but the “Father’s house” was.

    So what is the preparation?

    John 14:3: “I go to prepare a place for you…” This is one of the phrases of Jesus so greatly misunderstand. This has been taken to mean a heavenly place up in the sky that Jesus was supposedly going to prepare for us to occupy some day when we vacate the earth. But the truth of the matter is: Jesus had no such plan in mind.

    The place He intends to prepare is not located in ‘heaven’ up above in the sky but actually you.

    So far, we have been able to see that the “Father’s house” is the Church and that the “many mansions” are the “many members of the body of Christ”.

    What now did Jesus mean by “I go and prepare a place for you”?

    Let us first consider the meaning of the word ‘prepare’. The Greek word is ‘hetoimazo’, which means ‘to prepare, provide, make ready’.

    Now, what was Jesus going to prepare or make ready and for whom?

    Notice this fact, that this “preparation” has nothing to do with anything external .i.e. what is outside of man. The word used here is hetoimazo, unlike kataskeuazo which means to prepare thoroughly (properly by external equipment).

    The word “hetoimazo” refers to internal fitness; by implication, it means to construct, create, build, (Eph.2:20–22) make, ordain (John 15:16) prepare.

    The English word ‘FIT’ (vt) means to make suitable; to qualify; to adapt; to adjust; to fashion to the appropriate size. The noun ‘FITNESS’ means the state of being fit; sound bodily health.

    The question then follows; what went wrong in heaven or the Father’s house, that Jesus had to go and make ready; adjust; adapt to, fashion to appropriate size? etc. Please let us meditate.

    WHY THE PREPARATION?

    Evidently, the purpose of the preparation is REDEMPTION. And to speak of redemption means something has gone wrong with a property or that it is under enslavement to an authority and needs be reclaimed.

    In just the same way, we find the issue of preparation in connection with Moses when he sang the song of redemption in Exodus 15:2:

    “… The Lord is my strength and song, and He is become my salvation; He is my God, and I will PREPARE HIM AN HABITATION; my Father and I will exalt Him”.

    Here is the case of establishing the Church in the wilderness as a priest and prophet of God for God to inhabit.

    This is plain enough, that this song is as a result of the redemption of the children of Israel from Egypt.

    Now, Scripture makes it clear, that redemption involves the following:

    (1) God; Redemption is completely of God (Exodus 3:7, 8; John 3:16)

    (2) A man; God uses (or it involves using) a person (Moses-Exodus 2:2; Jesus-John 3:16, 17)

    (3) Blood (Exodus 12:13, 23, 27. 1 Peter 1:18)

    (4) The power of God (Exodus 6:6, 13:14; Romans 8:2).

    The habitation therefore, that Moses was to prepare for God was nothing more than His role as a priest in preparing the children of Israel as a peculiar people for God from amongst men in the world, in this case from Egypt. That is the Church in the wilderness.

    So, we see that the statement: “I go to prepare a place for you” by Jesus speaks of the redemption of

    man from the power of sin.

    Jesus was merely telling them I will be going to the cross and then come to your spirit man and by the spirit to make you ready for God to inhabit again as His Temple.

    Man had to be redeemed from sin because:

    “..you know that you are slaves of anyone you obey? You can be slaves of sin and die or you can be obedient slaves of God and be acceptable to Him (Romans 6:16) CEV.

    Yet man was supposed to be the dwelling place of God.2 Cor.6: 16

    “And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people”

    So then the falling man needs redemption.

    As touching the promised made to Abraham that through him all nations of the Earth shall be blessed, (Gen.12:7; 17:4-6) Paul declared:

    “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being a made curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree”

    That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

    . “And now that we are Christ’s, we are true descendants of Abraham, and all of God’s promises to Him belong to us” (Gal. 3:29)

    “For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the Patriarchs and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy…” (Rom.15:8 RSV).

    Therefore the promises of the Gospel is “To open” (our) eyes that we thus receive. A PLACE and PORTION and those (the many member body of Christ) who are consecrated and purified by faith…” that is in Christ (Acts 26:18 AMP).

    Therefore, the ‘place’ and the ‘portion’ in the above passages are directly connected to the covenant of promise by God to Abraham which Christ came to confirm, and which must be realized on the Earth.

    This is what Paul meant when he said: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who had blessed us with all spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).

    Luke 15:11-32, Is an interesting story about the prodigal son that asked for his portion, as an heir..12 …,

    ” Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living”

    This is what it means to have a place or portion in the father’s house

    So the essence of the Gospel is “to open our eyes and turn us from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that we may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me (Christ)” (Acts 26:18)

    NIV

    The Gospel is meant for you to locate your inherit in the fathers house the Church, just like each tribe of Israel had their portion or a place in Canaan through Moses ministry executed by Joshua.

    Knowing this that we being joint heirs with Christ, we are also sitting together with him in the heaven realms.

    The place of power and dominion (Eph.2:6).

    So you see, it is not our going up to a location called heaven that will guarantee us the blessings or our portion in the covenant of Abraham, but our union with Christ right here on earth.

    Again, we see that this is what He came to establish.

    It must be noted as well that the “portion” includes the gifts of the Spirit which the Holy Spirit distributes to each and every one of us as He wills (1 Cor 12:7-11; Eph.4:11).

    So, we can see that mankind was in enslavement to sin through Adam. Because of his fall, he was not qualified to abide in the “Father’s House” forever. So, the ultimate purpose of the preparation is that mankind may be liberated and re-admitted back into the Father’s house (see Ps. 90:1–3). Hence the record says that we have been

    “…translated from the power of darkness (a realm of authority) into the kingdom (a place) of His dear Son” Col. 1:13.

    Notice the difference, Power detains reluctant captives, whereas a kingdom cherishes willing subjects.

    This re-admission (the preparation) was accomplished through Jesus’ death by which means He destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil; and delivered them who through fear of death (sin factor) were all their lifetime subject to bondage (slavery) Hebrews 2:14–15 KJV.

    So “The Holy Spirit gives up life that comes from Christ Jesus and will set you free from sin and death” Romans 8:2 CEV.

    Therefore the preparation implied in John 14 is nothing more than Jesus’ crucifixion, death, resurrection and glorification.

    And by the release of the Holy Spirit, He established a kingdom of holy people freed from the power of sin (Acts 26:18) in fulfillment of the model prayer.

    “…Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth, as it is done in heaven” Matthew 6:10

    Christ came to terminate “the kingdom of darkness” (Colossians 1:13) that was dominating the earth. Through His sacrifice on the cross, He redeemed us from the powers of darkness and translated (moved) us, into His own kingdom.

    This translation is not going to happen when we die or when He comes again a supposed second time. Rather, even now, we are

    “receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved” Hebrews 12:8.

    By implication, God’s life is being imparted in us to be manifested on the earth to the degree that it cannot be moved by the power of sin or otherwise.

    So, there is an increase of His Kingdom both in principle and in people to the point that at the end, the word to those called out will be;

    “…come ye blessed of my Father, INHERIT THE KINGDOM PREPARED for you from the foundation of the world” Math.25:34.

    The preparation is simply Christ sacrifice that we might be brought back to the fathers house as sons to inherit our inheritance as sons of the Father.

    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS PART 7 – RAPTURE 4 (JOHN 14)

    John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so,…”

    It’s already clear to us that the Father’s House of Jesus that He referred to is the Church of the living God (1 Tim.3:15, Heb.3:1-6)

    So then what are the mansions in this house that He was referring to?

    THE MANY MANSIONS… A PEOPLE WHERE GOD DWELLS.

    Paul says; “..the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”. 1Co 2:14

    What that means is, by secular education or just being religious, man cannot see beyond the letters of the word, as the mere academic exercise of theology and human philosophy cannot make one know God. God can only be known through the son, by revelation. [Math.11:27].

    Unfortunately, 80% of Christendom approach God’s language through the natural senses, thereby finding it difficult to understand who God is. As a result they cannot understand His language;

    How can they understand the voice of Him whom they do not know (John 10:27)?

    This is why people misunderstood the words of Jesus in John 14:2 for a physical building up in the sky. Which to them has been under construction for the past 2,000 years or more? But thanks be to God, for now we know by His divine grace and through the leadership of the Spirit, that the father’s house is a people, the very family of God, the Church of the living God, with Christ as the head. Heb. 3:1–6, 1 Tim. 3:15, Col. 1:8, Eph. 1:22–23 etc.

    Now, consider the statement of Jesus:

    “In my father’s house are many mansions…”

    What could the mansions mean if the house is the family of God?

    To start with, let me ask you this simple question that you can always answer, no matter your level of understanding of the English Language. A “mansion” and a “house” which is bigger? .Very simple! A mansion is bigger. So why do you imagine that Jesus is not intelligent enough to know that, since a mansion is bigger, it cannot be found in a house?

    It simply shows, we have not understood what He meant, when He made that statement.

    Now, if He said ‘in my Father’s are many mansions’, it simply means the mansions are already there and he wasn’t going there to prepare or build some for the disciples. That was a statement of fact.

    So what then are the ‘mansions’ in the father’s house?

    To do this, let’s quickly compare different translations of the Bible based on this verse of scripture.

    1. In my father’s house are many mansions – KJV

    2. In my father’s house are many rooms – RSV

    3. In my father’s house there are many dwelling places (Homes) – AMP

    4. There are many rooms in my father’s house – JB

    5. In the house of my father, there are many abodes. Int. Linear Trans.

    This again is simple, that the word ‘MANSION’ does not mean a building in itself, but rather rooms or dwelling places within a house.

    Therefore the statement of Jesus does not indicate that, He was going up somewhere to build ‘mansions’ for people to stay in when they die or get raptured to heaven. The father’s house simply means the family of God. So what He meant to say to them, was that in the family of God, His own Church, there are many dwelling places, rooms, abode (people, you and I) where God resides by the Spirit..

    Look at this.

    Eph.2: 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

    21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

    22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

    Look at the verse 22 very well, it says we are being built as a habitation, a dwelling place, a residential place for God to live in. Can you see it?

    So what could these mansions, dwelling places – rooms mean?

    The dwelling places are simply the individuals that make up the family of God.

    This becomes clearer as we look at the meaning of the word mansion in the

    Greek –MONE, it means a staying, i.e. residence (the act or the place) abode, mansion, dwelling place. It also means, to stay in a given place, state..

    Now compare the statement of Jesus in John 14:23 when Judas asked Him;

    “how is it, that thou will manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

    (Verse 22)” Jesus answered and said unto him, “if a man loves me, he will keep my words, and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and MAKE OUR ABODE (mansion) WITH HIM”

    “…We will come to him and make our HOME (abode, special dwelling place) with him” AMP.

    “…we will come to that man and make our HOME WITHIN HIM” Phillips.”

    “…We will come to them and LIVE IN THEM” NCV.

    Was that not the same statement made by Paul

    “…for ye are the TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD; as God hath said, I

    WILL DWELL IN THEM, and WALK IN THEM; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people” 2 Cor.6:16 KJV.

    Can you see now, that the ‘mansions’, are the individual temples in the father’s house?

    Look! You are ‘a mansion’, a dwelling place, an abode, a home etc where God dwells by the Spirit as you abide by the teachings of Christ

    (2 John 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son)

    Therefore, you do not have to die to own a mansion. Rather, you are to live to manifest what a mansion stands for because God’s HOME IS NOW WITH HIS PEOPLE; He will live with them, and they will be His own, Yes, God will make His home among His people. (Rev.21:3. CEV).

    Jesus in His earthly ministry made it abundantly clear that, He was a House of God, when He went into the physical Temple with a cord in hand and drove away all that were buying and selling.

    Wherein they demanded of Him to show them a sign, He simply said

    “destroy this Temple and in three days I will raise it up” (John 2:19). In verse 22, the Bible says “…He spake of the TEMPLE of His BODY”.

    Meaning, He was not talking of a literal Temple as the House of God, but of His own Body. “For it has pleased (the father) that all the divine fullness – the sum total of divine perfection, powers and attributes should dwell in Him (Jesus) permanently.” Col. 1:19 AMP.

    For “…GOD WAS IN CHRIST reconciling the world unto Himself…” (2 Cor.5:19 KJV).

    Even so, we are the temple of God today on the earth, with the same ministry of reconciliation. (2 Cor. 5:19–20).

    But above and beyond that, this temple is the Church, the present glorified body of Christ

    “He … is the Head of (His) BODY, THE CHURCH; …” Col.1:18 A.MP. And “…we being many are one bread and one body; For as the body is one, and hath MANY MEMBERS, and all the members of that one body, being many are one body; so also is Christ (i.e. Christ body, the Church)

    1 Cor. 10:17, 12:22.

    Now these “many members” that make up this body of Christ are the “Many Mansions” Amen.

    Friends, again we say, this was not a promise of a physical building by Jesus that you will inherit when you get raptured to heaven. It is simply you as the Church.

    LAST DAYS PREDICTION – RAPTURE 3 (JOHN 14)

    John14:

    1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

    2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

    3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”

    This is one passage that the Rapturist has used to deceive the masses about the end times, by building in the them a false hope.

    A minister once said on TV that the Rapture have not taken place because Jesus is busy building mansions for each of the children being born into the faith .Then I wondered if Jesus will ever come because women are busy giving birth daily.

    That’s how far we can go with our wrong belief system in giving false hope to our members who believe in every word we preach and teach.

    So truth be told, almost every Christian, because of the way we have been programmed, sees John 14:1–3 to be the hope of the Church, supposedly promised by Jesus for us to ‘escape’ the persecution of the so-called ‘Antichrist’, either through the ‘rapture’ or through death. Then we go up to heaven above, and collect keys to beautiful buildings that Jesus has been constructing for us for the past 2,000 years and yet unable to finish maybe.

    Let me help my audience here a little bit. One of the major keys in accurate Biblical Interpretation is AUDIENCE RELEVANCE. By that I mean, who was speaking, and to whom and why, what was the prevailing situation then?

    If you can answer these questions, you readily get an answer to any passage in question.

    But the point is, what exactly was Jesus talking about? What led to this statement of His?

    What hope was he really presenting to the Church?

    What does the “mansion” and “father’s House” etc stand for?

    These are the things we hope to examine in these shot posts as per the request of a brother online.

    In this case Jesus was speaking to his Disciples by saying –“Let not your heart be troubled. And where? In the upper. Why? Because they were disturbed when he told them in Chapter 13, that he was going to be betrayed and killed at Jerusalem. And that one of them with him on the table will be the one to betray him.

    So you see, you can’t get the answer to this passage without first going back to chapter 13 and what led to the statement.

    “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believed in God, believe also in me. In my father’s house are many mansions…” John 14:1-2.

     Now why did He make the statement?  The following reasons;

    (1)  The disturbances that was in the heart of the disciples as a result of the prediction of His betrayal and subsequent death. John 13:21–30;

    (2) The soon to be denial of Jesus Christ by Apostle Peter. John 13:36–38.

    So ultimately, Jesus made these statements to strengthen their faith as a result of the confusion that was already developing in their hearts. Come to think of it.

    For the Apostles to begin to hear that the Messiah they have so trusted in, that they have walked with for 31/2 years, performing signs and wonders, will suddenly be betrayed, arrested and killed?. To them all hope as to what the future holds and even as to whom else to believe in as their leader was lost. That was the thought Jesus discerned in their hearts that led to His making the statement in question.

    “Let not your heart be troubled…” John 14:1. Why? “But now I go my way to Him that sent me, and none of you asked me whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart” (John 16:5–6 KJV).

    Note, that Chapter 16 is a continuous dialogue from Chapter 14.

    However, since “…ye believe in God… (John.14:1 KJV)”,That he has promised to protect his own in the Old Testament see Deuteronomy 33: 3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.

    Isaiah 43: 13 Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

    Then “…believe also in me” that the sheep which the Father has given to me “… no man is able to pluck them out of my father’s hand…” John 10:29 KJV.

    So, this is the trouble they had and Jesus went into series of explanations and clarifications to strengthen their faith.

    Now as the discussion continued and Jesus began to explain to them, His death, resurrection, the work and release of the Holy Spirit (Chapter 14 through 16), the faith of the disciples began to rise as true understanding was beginning to dawn on them.

     As a result, they declared, “…by this we believe that thou comest forth from God” John 16:28, 30.

    Jesus then replied “… Do ye now believe? Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered every man to his own, and shall leave me alone, and yet I am not alone, because the father is with me. “These things I have spoken unto you, that IN ME ye might have peace, IN THE WORLD ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” John 16:31-33.

    THE RAPTURE QUESTION

    Having looked at the above passages of Scripture, can we say that Jesus had the issue of ‘rapture’ in mind while talking to the Apostles and of course His disciples?

     NO! How could He be talking of ‘rapturing’ the saints and at the same time be telling them to be brave in the same world? Brave towards what then?

    Here again, the indication is that they will have tribulations in the world, but because they are IN Him, they shall have peace. See 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

    THE WORLD

    Now what constitutes THE WORLD that will produce the tribulation?

    The Greek word used here is KOSMOS which speaks of the system of the world. It speaks of mankind; the ‘human race’ that is hostile to God, those who hate Christ and His disciples, orderly arrangement, i.e. decoration; by implication, the world (in a wide or narrow sense, including its inhabitants). (John 7:7, 15, 18, 19, 17:14, Revelation 13:8).

    This is why the record says:

    “He was in the world (i.e. took His residence amongst mankind) and the world (mankind) was made by Him, and the world (mankind) knew Him not” John 1:10.

     Therefore, Christ in His intercessory prayer for the saint to be able to resist the evil system of man, said,

    “I pray for them, I pray not for the world (the antichrist system of man), but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine…

    I have given them thy word (that they might trust and resist the evil one with the word Psalms 119:41–42, 50, 161 even as He did in the wilderness Matthew 4) and the world (beast system of man Revelation 13:8) hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world…” John 17:9, 14, 16.

    Then in verse 15, he prayed.. “Father, I don’t ask you to take my followers out of the world, but keep them safe from the evil one” CEV. 

    “I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the evil one” JB.

    So here He prayed against the RAPTURE, Can you see it ?

    Why did Jesus pray this prayer?

    It is simply that through the Church, the world that has so hated Jesus may believe in Him, whom they never believed in (John 1:10, 16:9), for the world’s sin is unbelief (John 8:21, 24; 46:15; 22), which must be exposed by the Holy Spirit through the Church.

    Therefore Jesus prayed: “Neither pray I for these alone (early apostles) but for them (you and I) also which shall believe on me through their word That they all may be one, as thou father, art in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us, that the world may believe that thou has sent me” John 17:20–21.

    Did you see it? Praise God! Therefore it is the presence of the Church in the world that will eventually make the world-mankind, to believe in Jesus, whom they had never believed in even while He was alive physically as a human being. So, should there be any ‘rapture’ of the Church, it would mean that Christ’s prayer was not answered by God. And the whole world (mankind) for whom He died (1 John 2:2) will eventually perish because of their unbelief.

     Basically therefore, John 14 is to encourage the saints to be able to fulfill the will of God for us. The Saints are the salt of the earth and the light of the world-Mankind (Matthew 5:13-14) even as His life is the light of men (John 1:4). 

    It is this life that overcomes the world (system of men–Antichrist). Therefore be of good cheer!

    UNDERSTANDING THE TERM, “FATHER’S HOUSE”

    “In my ‘FATHER’S HOUSE’ are many mansions…” John 14:2 KJV. Now you already know why Jesus made that statement, so now what exactly does the term Father’s means .. What is a house? How does the Bible apply this term? What did Jesus really mean by “My father’s house”?

    The Hebrew  one for House is “BAYITH” – a house (specifically Family, etc), temple. And in the Greek language, it is ‘OIKIA’ – an abode, by implication, a FAMILY (specifically DOMESTIC) home, house(hold). The Noun form of ‘OIKIA’ is OIKIAKOS and it means familiar i.e. RELATIVES–they (them) of (his own) household.

    It is clear from the above definition that, when we are talking of a ‘house’ as used in the scriptures, we are referring to a realm of existence, a family that is made up of individuals who are close to one another, and not necessarily a physical building. Look at the followings on how the word is used in the Bible…

    e.g. “ABRAHAM’S FATHER’S HOUSE”. Abraham, when talking to his servant to go and get a wife for his son Isaac, from among his people said: “The Lord God of Heaven, which took me from “MY FATHER’S HOUSE” and from the land of my kindred… thou shalt go and take a wife unto my son from thence” (Gen. 24:1–7 KJV)

     “… The Lord who brought me out of ‘My father’s household’ and my native land…” NIV.

    “… The Lord who brought me from THE HOME OF MY FATHER and the land of my RELATIVES…” NCV.

    So, Abraham’s Father’s House was his immediate family, from amongst whom God called him. Not a physical building .For God did not call him from his Father’s physical building but from amongst his relatives.

    Again, we see that “JOSEPH’S FATHER’S HOUSE” was his brothers who went to him in Egypt: “And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his “FATHER’S HOUSE”, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, MY BRETHREN, and MY FATHER’S HOUSE, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me” (Gen.6:31 KJV) “…My brothers and my FATHER’S FAMILY… have come to me” NCV.

    Friends, this is also clear that Joseph’s Father’s House that went to him in the land of Egypt were his immediate brothers, and the extended family circle. Here again we see that Joseph never carried a physical building called the ‘father’s house’ to Egypt. (See Genesis 41:51, 47:12, 50:8)

     But  his extended family circle was his father’s house .  “…and so Joseph continued to live in Egypt with ALL HIS FATHER’S FAMILY…” Genesis 50:22 NCV.

    Similarly, we read of  RAHAB’S FATHER’S HOUSE, which were her RELATIVES in Jericho. (See Joshua 2:1, 12, 18; 6:25) “Rahab the prostitute, her FAMILY (father’s house) and all who were with her…” NCV.

    Gideon had a father’s house “…Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? Behold, my ‘family’ is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in “My father’s house” Judges 6:15 KJV.

    It absolutely clear, that the phrase “father’s house” means nothing more than a person’s relative. David’s Father’s house was his relative that went to him at the cave Adullam (1 Samuel 22:1;)

    In the same vein “Moses was nourished up in his father’s house three months” Acts 7:20.

    May I be bold to tell you, my dear reader, that as far as the phrase “Father’s house” is concerned, it refers to the members of an individual’s particular family?

    Therefore the best way to understand the language of Jesus is that, He was referring to God’s family in which He is the first-born son. So Jesus wasn’t in any way referring to a physical building up there in heaven but His family members.

     Don’t be deceived; with a false hope .Jesus never promised us a physical building up in heaven nether was Jesus promising us rapture in John 14.its a religious belief.

    So then what was Jesus Fathers house?

    THE PROBLEM IS THE PRIESTHOOD

    Bertrand Russell famously said,

    “The fundamental cause of trouble in the world is that the stupid are so confident and the intelligent are so full of doubt.”

    I thought Christians would know better than to be swayed with every wind of conspiracy theory about G5, CoviD-19 and the so called imaginary  Antichrist.

    Whatever happens to scriptures like…

    Rev.11: 15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever”

    Do you really think the father of glory will relinquish His authority over creation to one beasts to take over?

    What was the purpose of the cross and Christ death?

    Let them have Dominion was a mandate , So God has changed his mind am sure?

    Why ask us to pray for His kingdom to come and his will to be done on Earth?

    Friends, we are the ones giving over the church mandate  to the devil out of fear and unbelief factored in ignorance.

    Listen to this…

    Here is the reason why we are where we are…

    Hos.4: 6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.,”

    You know what?

    We pastors quote this  to pride ourselves over the flock as if God was talking to the flock. No, read it completely.

    God truly was rebuking the priesthood, the today’s pastors for rejecting the true knowledge of God and so the body of Christ is suffering and being swayed to and fro , laddened with fear.

    FEAR OF COVID-19, AND ANTICHRIST?

    No! there is nothing new under the sun. Let the pictures below heal your fears , things like these have happened before.

    The world didn’t end. No Antichrist arose from anywhere and there is never going to be one anyway…

    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS: THE G5 AND COVID-19 PART 3

    A LOOK AT THE RAPTURETHE LORD COMING DOWN WITH THE TRUMP.

    1 Thes.4:16 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first”

    (1 Thes.4:16). “One word of command, one shout from the archangel, one blast from the trumpet of God and the Lord Himself will come down from heaven…” (Phillips).

     We know through out the Bible that trumpets speak of messages.

    Jesus would say , when you do good “…do not sound your trumpet  before you” Math.6:1-2.

     And we know  that the “last trump” (1 Cor 15:5-52) is actually the last message of the seventh angel of (Rev 10:1, 7), which is the message of perfection and completeness.

    But what exactly is this ‘trump of God’ of 1 Thes 4:16?

    Here the trumpet is directly associated with “God” Himself unlike what we have in (1Cor 15:52) “Last trump” that is associated with the seventh angel.

    So then,what is the true meaning of the phrase “the trumpet of God”.  We can find the answer in the words of Prophet Zechariah.

    The whole chapter of Zech.9 is prophetic of the judgment on Israel’s enemies, the restoration of Israel to the Promised Land, which will embrace not only the Israelite territory then (see Judges 20:1) but also the Aramaean, Phoenician and Philistine cities.

    The whole prophecy speaks of a victorious campaign, and interpreted as the campaign of God Himself, which speaks of the coming age of the Messiah, and that this campaign is to be carried out at THE COMING OF ZION’S KING.

    Look at it “This is the message concerning God’s curse on the lands of Hadrach and Damascus, for the Lord is closely watching ALL MANKIND (or “of the cities of Syria belong to the Lord, as much as do the tribes of Israel.” ) … Rejoice greatly, O my people! Shout with joy! for look, your king is coming! He is the righteous one, THE VICTOR: … The Lord shall lead His people as they fight! His arrows shall fly like lightning; the Lord God shall sound the trumpet call and go out against His enemies like a whirlwind off the desert, from the south. He will defend His people and they will subdue their enemies, … they will taste victory and SHOUT WITH TRIUMPH They shall shine in His hand as glittering jewels in a crown How wonderful and beautiful all shall be; ” (Zech 9: 1-17 Tlb).

    Zech.9: 14 “And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south”.

    So when Jesus used this phrase for the Jews of his days in Luke 12, what do you think he was saying to them?

    Luke 12: 55 “And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

     56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time”?

    He meant to say, you don’t know that I am the messiah spoken of by the prophets and that your time of Judgment under the Roman Armies is here.

    For – the south west wind, blow over hot desert areas into Palestine and so could produce a heat wave, symbolic here of judgment.

    So you see, It is in the light of this prophetic word and the restoration process through God’s judgment on His enemies that the “trump of God” in 1Thes 4:16 is speaking to us.

     For “yea He sent out His arrows, and scattered them; and He shot out lightning, and discomfited them.” To executed vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron to execute upon them the judgement written; THIS HONOUR HAVE ALL HIS SAINTS Praise ye the Lord.” (Ps 18:14, 149;7-9 KJV).

    Precisely what Enoch prophesied  in Jude 14-16. “…see, the Lord is coming with millions of His holy ones (saints)..”.

    So what are we saying? The trumpet call of God is symbolic of God’s move against His enemies in warfare ..

    “When He shall come to be glorified IN HIS SAINTS, as He is “revealed from Heaven” – in flaming fire (heat wave. Heb.1: 7) taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…” (2 Thes 1:10,7- 8).

     Therefore what we are seeing here in 1 Thes 4:16, is the “war call” of Nub 10:9 which was blown by the priest accompanying the army. (Nub 31: 6) compare 2 Chron.13:12-15.

     This trumpet call of God, is not just an ordinary call or message like any other, but a call to arm, to bring to subjection, – self and human ego, as we match arm to arm with principalities and power, with our wills being broken that we might fully be empowered by Him to go forth and to conquer, even the beast in political governments, religion and the heart of men.

    It has nothing to do with a literal trumpet some days to come that will enable you fly away.

    The victory over sin is sure and the last enemy to be destroyed is death, producing a total restoration of man back into the image of His creator in Christ. Eph. 1: 10, CoI. 3: 10.  

    Clearly then, the trumpet of 1Thes4:16  “THE TRUMP OF GOD”,is  AN ALARM OF WAR. It’s not for a Rapture , but to declare the Victories of Christ on the Earth.

     ASCENDING  & ASCENDING. The Lord descending is a manifestation.

    “For THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN ..,” (1 Thes 4:16).

    First of all, the word DESCEND is KATABATNO which means: – DESCEND, (lit or fig) Come (GET, GO, STEP DOWN, FALL (DOWN).

    In the book of Proverb , we read,

    “Who hath ascended up into heaven, or DESCENDED–?” (Prov.30:4)

     Jesus Himself answered the question when He said

     “–No man hath ascended up to heaven, but HE THAT CAME DOWN (descended) from HEAVEN, even the Son of man which is in heaven” (Jn 3:13 ).

    What can we understand by this? It is simply that, He alone has manifested the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

    In other words, no man has being filled with the fullness of the Godhead in human form before His arrival and that He alone had that privilege while alive even on earth.

    For “for in Him, the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form, giving complete expression of the divine nature” (Col 2:9),Amp.See 1Tim.3:16.  “God was manifested in the flesh…”

    Having accomplished the victory of sin and Satan at the Cross, through His human ministry, He ascended above all other realms of spiritual attainment-heavens, into the Fatherhood realm.

    For “I come forth from the Father, and am come unto the world (descended) again. I leave the world (as a human being and ye see me no more. (Jn16:10) as i go to the Father who is spirit (Jn 4:24 Jn16: 28).

    Just look at this..

    Eph.4: 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

    10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

    So how did he descend from heaven the first time, did he float down like a balloon from the cloud and landed on Earth as a human being?

    The scripture says, in response to the address of the angel that spoke to Mary..

    Luke.1: 34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

     35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God”

    Can you get it.. He came through the glory cloud, same cloud that descended on the Mouth of transfiguration, the cloud that came at the dedication of Solomon’s temple, and same cloud that descended on the Mouth Sinai when the law was given. The very cloud that was in the Most Holy place upon the Ark and the very cloud with which he ascended Acts 1: 9 ..and a cloud received him out of their sight”

    Not Clouds, but the same singular cloud people.

    He descended through that means as the glory rested on Mary.

    His descending, was simply to give up his Glory as the Father and became a human being.

    Phil.2: 6 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men”

    So in Jn 3:13 when He said, “no man has ascended up to heaven,” it is that no human being had ever lived, even Elijah and all others, and those even now without Christ, did not and cannot attain to the fullness of the Godhead without the sacrifice of Christ

    “for in Christ, there is all of God in human body” Tlb.

    But the word of God says, Elijah ascended up to heaven! Sure, he did, but not into the fullness of the father’s glory because “–the way into the holiest of all (fullness of God’s glory) was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle (realm of sacrifices and laws) was yet standing, (i.e. Still in place) (Heb 9:8).

    What are we saying?

     “Descending out of heaven” does not mean a literal human being being floating down, but a manifestation of His person.

     But this time through a people- see this “God was IN CHRIST” (2cor 5: 19), that was a manifestation.

    There was no literal person called God other than the vessel He chose to pass through as Jesus the Christ.

     God descended on Mt Sinai in fire- (Exo 19: 18), that does not limit the nature of God or his manifestation to be of fire. In Exo.33: 9, He filled the tabernacle with the “cloudy pillar of glory” as He descended. In Gen 11: 5 “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower,…..” to destroy the tower of Babel,  Who saw a physical human being?

    Think for a moment. Could it be we are missing some of his visitations to us because we are thinking of just only one way of his coming?

     In Jn1:51 Jesus told Nathaniel that He shall see angels ‘ascending and descending’ upon the son of man’

    He was not talking of literal angels walking on him as a human being, but rather, that He is the WAY to the father-our heavenly home.”–I am the door, by me if any man (angel?) enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in (ascend) and out (descend) and find pasture (life) (John10: 9).

    What it means further to descend …

    Exo.19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

    19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

    20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.

    21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish….

    22 And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them.

    23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.

    24 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth upon them.

    25 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

    “The Law was given”

    Exo.20: 1  And God spake all these words, saying,

    2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

    3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me…..

    Get this right. Moses ascended, then God asked Moses to go down-descending, and as he starts descending, immediately the Law was proclaimed.

    What is the implication of this? The law was imparted into Moses to be further imparted and implanted in the rest of the people. And that is God, Heaven itself descending into man with His nature, so man may manifest heaven-God for the laws were the nature of God.

    So when Jesus talked about “ …and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man”,(John1.51. ) it is to get the mind of God in order to reveal same to creation.

    The result of this movement is the establishment of a kingdom of priest as we impart the nature of God to men. Since from the mouth of the priests shall they seek knowledge Mal.2:7.

    Man meeting with God is heaven coming down to Earth, this is the oneness of God and man that the Father ultimately desire for the creation since the fall of man, thereby revealing his laws in our hearts-and so manifesting God’s Government-His kingdom.

    So in Isaiah He said to his people;- Isa.51:15

    “But I am the LORD thy God that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The LORD of hosts is his name.

    16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people”

    This is the mystery of the sons of God going into God, receiving and blessing the people in the’ outer court’ spiritually with the resources of heaven. This is the same ladder that Jacob saw in Gen28: 12.

    Now, you can understand why the-‘ great city’-the lamb’s wife-the heavenly Jerusalem is.. “descending but of heaven from God”, (Rev.21:9-10).

    It is the Church of Christ, which is His body and with Him as the head being revealed,  (Eph1:22-23), that through the church, He as spirit in the church might fill ALL THINGS with His person.

    “(20 “All this energy issues from Christ: God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, 21 in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever. He (Christ)  is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything. At the center of all this, Christ rules the church. 23 The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church. The church is Christ’s body, in which he speaks and acts, by which he fills everything with his presence.” (Eph.1:20-23 msg.)

    Praise the Lord. Can you handle that?

    So His descending out of heaven is the revelation of His ‘body’ to the world in a great power and glory, when He comes to be glorified in His saints. (2Thes1:10) For He is in them, (Col 1:27), and the Church is in God, (Acts17:28,1Jn 5:20, 1 Thes:1-1, John 14:20, Ps 90:1).

    Again, Christ coming out of heaven, the spirit realm is through a people – the Church, with whom He is now sitting in glory. (Eph 2: 6, Col 3:1).

    So ultimately, God is intending us to take heaven wherever we go and to have it planted as such, bringing to a realization the prayer, thy kingdom come, thy will be done in Earth as its in heaven.

    The Church needs to wake up and be who God intends her to be on the Earth.

    We must get out of the fears of the Antichrist and trying to run away to heaven.

     For “…The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever” Rev.11:15..

    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS: THE G5 AND COVID-19 PART 3

    A LOOK AT THE RAPTURE

    Truth is, when a belief gets too old, it is taken as a truth. Nobody cares anymore to question the validity of such subjects, even if they don’t line up with scriptures or the ultimate purposes of God because it has been handed down from generations to generations. And fully propagated by respected fathers in the faith. I Just want us to take a look at this theory as it’s often tied to the Antichrist as a last day event.

    THE RAPTURIST MISCONCEPTION OF SCRIPTURES

    Just to remind us about what the ‘Rapturist’ believes,. It is that one day soon, while the whole world is asleep, Jesus shall “Crack” through the empty sky and in a flash catch away His waiting Bride, the Church, secretly as He returns in “Mid-air”. They will now spend at least 7 years (some 3,l/2 years) in heaven before the throne enjoying the “marriage supper of the Lamb”. While this is taking place in heaven, the “man of sin”, the “antichrist” should have started the most fearful supposed “Great Tribulation”.

    After 3’l/2 years, (others say 7 years) Jesus and the Saints will now return to earth to set up His kingdom, ruling from the old city of Jerusalem, for 1,000 years.

    By this time, Satan sould  have been destroyed and mankind is left with eternal bliss and endless peace on earth’ they said.

    But do not forget that even in the midst of this, they are divided. For you have the “PRE-TRIB”. That is the belief in the rapture taking place before the Great Tribulation. “MID¬TRIB” meaning the rapture occurring in the middle of the tribulation, and “POST – TRIB” the rapture occurring after the tribulation.

    The question one will like to ask at this juncture is, where is the provision for the fulfillment of certain scriptures like 

    “Rom. 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: …”

     Are all Israel saved now?

     Romans.8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God”

     We can see that the’ rapture belief denies the fulfillment of the above Scripture which is directly connected to the ultimate purpose of man’s existence. Gen.l:26-27, Ps.82: 1-6. “..Let them have dominion … “. This is what was lost in Adam through disobedience, that Jesus came to restore.

    WHAT THEN IS THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION?

    Again, this theory wants us to believe that the abomination has to do with the supposed antichrist that will be sitting in the temple of God in Jerusalem. And to support this, they will quote 2Thes.2:3-4 and Dan.7:24-25.

    But a careful study will reveal that what Mathew spoke about as abomination can best be seen in

    Dan.9: Da 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

    “..A foreign ruler and his army will sweep down like a mighty flood, leaving both the city and the temple in ruins, and war and destruction will continue until the end, just as God has decided” Dan.9:26 CEV.

     ” … War will continue until the end God has ordered that place to be completely destroyed” NCV.

    The Messiah that ‘was cut off in this passage speaks of the death of Christ after His 3’l2 years of ministry.

     ‘The people of the prince’ speaks of the Roman soldiers, ‘the prince’ himself being General Titus.

    So without controversy, it can be seen that Daniel prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple by the Roman armies under the command of Titus.

     Therefore to link Math.25:15 with the ‘man of sin’ sitting in the temple in a future date and you call that ‘the abomination of desolation’ is erroneous.

     When we talk of the “holy place” and we think it has to do with the physical temple in Jerusalem is not true, for you see, all those who go to Jerusalem for pilgrimage do know, that once you drop off from your plane at Tel Aviv, you are already in the “holy land” even without getting to the temple.

    So, the Roman armies were already standing in the ‘holy land’ as they stood around the walls of Jerusalem to besiege it.

    Like we saw in Luk.21:20 Amp. “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that the time of its destruction has arrived.” tlb.

     From the above, you can see that the word

    “Desolation” is the same thing as “destruction” and that Jesus gave this to His disciples as a “sign” to be observed and escape the destruction that was to come to the city in AD 70.

    “then you will know”. “you will see ‘the awful horror’ of which the prophet Daniel spoke. It will be standing in the holy place.”. “Then (when you notice the Roman armies) those who are in Judea must run away to the hills. A man who is on the roof of his house must not take the time to go down and get his belongings from the house (the steps to the roof top were always outside, it means no delay), A man who is in the field must not go back to get his cloak, (if this is the rapture, then it requires a physical preparation to catch up with it). How terrible it will be in those days for women who are pregnant and for mothers with little babies! Pray to God that you will not have to run away during the winter (too cold for the body) or on a Sabbath (time of rest to the Soul in Service to the Lord). For the trouble at that time will be far more terrible than any, there has ever been from the beginning of the world to this very day ( Jer.30:7). Nor will there ever be anything like it again. But God has already reduced the number of days; had He not done so, nobody would survive. For the sake of His chosen people the elect sake – however, God will reduce the days” Math.24: 15-22. Goodnews.

    Can you see it?  Observe this, when the scripture spoke of the elect here, it was referring to those among the Jews who were called into the Christian fold.. There was nothing in all these passages linking the Antichrist with a supposed Rapture.

    THE ORIGIN OF THE RAPTURE.

    It was originated by three men John Nelson Derby, founder of the Plymouth Brethren who started teaching it in about 1828 AD, who got some of his ideas from a Catholic monk named Manuel De Lacunza who published his ideas in 1750.AD

    Then in 1830 AD in Engalnd. A 15 year old Margaret Mcdonald claimed to have had a revelation in which the church was taken away into the air before the great tribulation. Therefore to Derby and the rest, this was a confirmation.

     Dr Scofield, got this “new revelation” from Derby when he visited the united states in 1862 and included this teaching in the footnotes of his bible. The Scofields reference bible.

    “Dr.” Scofield, actually awarded himself his doctor’s degree without any higher education.

    In the early 1900’s Scofield was backed financially by a Jewish lawyer named Samuel Untermyer, who was one of the framers of the Federal Reserve Act and was the president of the occult Lotus Club in New York.

    Untermyer provided Scofield with free housing for about twenty years while he wrote his notes for the Scofield Bible. His motive was undoubtedly political, laying the groundwork to convince Christians to support the Jewish State, which was already being planned by certain powerful Zionist Jews. Their motives were anything but Christian.

    The Assembly of God’s Church, the first Pentecostal church finally picked it from Scofield bible reference note while preparing their Sunday school manuals through the printing press of D.L Moody, who was also influenced by Dr  Scofield .

    And that is how this  dangerous teaching came to stay in the body of Christ.

    NO LANGUAGE OF JESUS POINTED TO RAPTURE.

    We know it that Math 24 is not talking about a rapture.

    Jesus said in 34 “this generation will not pass before all that he said comes to pass ” how long is a generation?.  Biblical generation is 40yrs. 

    We are already some 2,000yrs plus when he said that so he wasn’t talking to you.

    DAYS OF NOAH-THE TAKEN AWAY

    Math.24: 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

    What happened in the days of Noah? Who were taken away? Was it the righteous or the wicked that were eating and drinking.

    Read it again for yourself.

    Luke’s account (17:26-27) said, the flood came and DESTROYED THE WICKED.

     And the righteous Noah was left behind to inherit the earth.

    If “taken away” means the “Rapture”, then it’s the wicked that will be raptured.

    This is how we have fared in our End Time Theology. Just reading scriptures upside down to prove a none feasible doctrine. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

    In the parable of the WHEAT and TARES which of them was harvested first?,

    Math. 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. (KJV)

     Was it not the tares that corresponded to the wicked?

    Jesus teachings shows clearly that only the wicked are always taken away (killed) first and not the righteous, but we in our theology turn things around because of the rapture doctrine.

    In Math 16: 28 Jesus speaking to his disciples said “Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom”

    Was Jesus talking to you?  If none of the disciples is still alive today, what’s that supposed to mean to us?

    Was this not his coming in judgment to Jerusalem to destroy the wicked unbelieving Jews? 

    When he told them in Math 10: verse 23  “But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man become”

    Are the disciples still running today?  Are we in any way living in one of the cities in Israel? How do we really read this Book?

    The only comings we know in the Bible are “the first” and “second coming” which is even unbiblical.

    We don’t know that there are various shades of Christ comings such as, his coming as a judge,as the  rain, a thief, in the clouds, as the Bridegroom, etc etc and they are not saying the same thing.

    The trouble we have today is that we copy and paste, what we think our supposed big fathers in the faith have spoken or being taught without checking out the truth in what they are peddling scripturally and so deceiving the masses.

    But the Bible says study to show yourself approved unto God..( 2 Tim. 2:15.) Not unto man.

    Wish we had some good times to talk on these things outside of this platform.

    1 THES 4:13-18

    The subject of the book of Thess. is an address to a congregation that experienced intense persecution (1 Thes. 2:14). Upon Paul’s preaching in this city, many believed, which caused the fanatical Jews to stir up a mob violence against him and Jason who housed him.

     Through a tight security Jason was saved while Paul was sent away secretly in the night by the brethren to Seroea (Acts 17: 1¬10).

     Aside of the great persecution that the church went through (1 Thes 2:14), they also experienced great sorrow over the loss of a number of their brethren through death (1 Thes 4:13).

    Paul first sent Timothy to strengthened them because of his failure to go there twice (1Thes 2:17,-3:3).

    And he rejoiced over  Timothy’s encouraging report of the brethren.(1 Thes. 3:6-10). But on a more serious note, they needed further encouragement and strengthening, therefore he had to commend them (1 Thes 1:2-10, 2:14; 3:6-10), that they may follow the course approved by God (1 Thes 4:1,2), abstain from fornication (1 Thes. 4:3-8) etc;  But above all, that they be comforted with THE RESURRECTION HOPE “ But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning THEM WHICH ARE ASLEEP, THAT YE SORROW NOT, even as others which have no HOPE– 1 Thes. 4:13-18.

      Therefore, the issue in question is that of THE RESURRECTION HOPE and not’ RAPTURE’. The word of the Lord in Vs 18 is “wherefore comfort one another with these words-”    which has to do with the Resurrection of the different categories of the saints Vs 13. Those who “SLEEP IN JESUS- (V.14), those “which are ALIVE and REMAIN- (V. 15,17) and those who are “DEAD IN CHRIST- (V. 16).

    That is to say, the saints should not be in sorrow, for all the saints shall meet with the Lord through the process of the Resurrection.

     So, this was not to escape the persecution of the Antichrist in the great tribulation through the Rapture.

    But, for the Rapturist! Jesus will not appear visibly to those on the earth, but only COMES IN THE AIR to resurrect the true saints who have died, change the living saints (1 Cor. 15:23, 51-53, Phil. 3:20-21) and “catch them up to meet the Lord in the air-. After this is the REVELATION (His supposed second coming with the saints).

    The interval between these two events is generally regarded as seven years (Daniels 70th week).

    During this time, according to this view, the Antichrist will make a seven year covenant with the Jews in which he will allow them to offer sacrifices in a rebuilt temple at Jerusalem. But after three and half years, he will break his covenant and place an idol (the abomination of desolation) in the ‘holy place’ of the temple. The Jews will refuse to bow and a great persecution will result – which they termed the  time of Jacob’s trouble.

    Finally, at the close of the tribulation period (the end of the age); Christ will return in power and great glory.

    Those who believe the ‘rapture’ will take place before the tribulation are called – ‘PRE – TRIBULATION RAPTURIST’ while those who believe the ‘rapture’ will take place after the tribulation are called – PRO-TRIBULATION RAPTURIST.

     This is the theory that has kept the Christian world bound.

    Now, note this, in the entire Bible there is no where it is stated that Jesus will be

    “coming FOR the saints”,

     rather you can find “IN THE SAINTS’ (2 Thes. 1:10) and WITH THE SAINTS’ (Jude 14).

    To teach a doctrine with a word very foreign to the world of God is very dangerous.

    Furthermore, they believe that the ‘Rapture’ will enable Christians escape the tribulation by using such terms as “-caught up” “transformed” and “translated-”.

    But the truth is, none of these processes makes us to escape a ‘tribulation’ but, rather they are making us to escape “Death- even in Adam. We are “caught up’ (1 Thes. 4:13) into a spiritual state of consciousness to escape from our camel mindedness which is death (Rom 8:6), as we partake of His divine nature and so “-ESCAPED- from “-the CORRUPTION THAT IS IN THE WORLD THROUGH LUST” (2 pet 1.4), even as we “– have fled for refuge (Heb 6.18), into Him thereby making us sons (John 1:12).

    Enoch was ‘translated’ that he may not ‘see death’ Heb 11:15 not because there was an Antichrist or tribulation.

    2 Cor 12:1-3, Paul was CAUGHT UP to the thirds heaven, he never left the Earth.

    Rev.4:1.., “COME UP HITHER, and I will shew thee things which must be HEREAFTER”

    Things that follow after the  the AGE of the seven Churches, not a rapture..

      So you see, all of these ‘terms’ are the progressive workings of the redemptive work of Christ in us.

    Other confused believers of this Rapture teaching are the “three different groups” of the secret Pre – tribulational Rapture doctrine:- which are (a) The mid – tribulational Rapture, (b) the Split – Rapture and (c) the Partial Rapture. And of course, these groups of believers are more damaging than the previous ones.

    These ‘Partial’ and ‘Split’ believers contend that the ‘Rapture of the saints is based upon merit and not upon your faith on the finished work of Christ. This belief is as foreign as the inventors themselves, to the mind, purposed and the word of God. It is never taught in the scriptures.

    Again their belief is based on the parable of the TEN VIRGINS.

    Math 25.. 1 ¶ “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”

    In their view, the Ten Virgins were all Christians with their Lamps trimmed at the first.

     To them the ‘five foolish’ Virgins will not go through the rapture because they have no oil- the qualifying factor.

    But why do you think chapter started with the word “THEN”?

    Simply  because its was dealing with the judgment of Israel in the previous  chapter 24 , so he meant to say  once the judgement  are over,  this is what follows next , the kingdom  of God and those to share his life as the bridegroom.

    In Israel the Bridegroom doesn’t come and take the Bride away, rather he comes in the night time, and the announcement is made by the friend of the Bridegroom just like John was to Jesus, ‘the Bridegroom cometh’ go ye OUT TO MEET HIM ” not ‘go up.’

    Then the virgins who are  like the bridesmaids of today, takes their lamps to lighten the street , to welcome him to the fathers-in-law’s house where they both will have the married consummate that night to proof whether the girl is a virgin or not by displaying the bed sheet the next day if here was a blood stain on it or not. If there was nonstain , the groom will speak out to the elders that the wife given to him by his inlaw is not a virgin.

    Then father and the bride will then taken  to face the judgement.

    Now if this was the Rapture, how come the foolish virgins made it to heaven. Look at verse 11..

    “Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.”

    You see that?

    Lamps in the Bible speaks of the word of God, (Ps 119:105

    “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path ”  Oil is the illumination of God’s word.

    To be foolish without oil just means you lack understanding of the word of God as per the season,.

     By implication those who will not understand the words he was saying will fall victims to the judgment that was to come to Jerusalem.

    That’s why it is the Parable about the kingdom of God.

    Hence in 1 Cor.6: 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit”

    You don’t have to be raptured to be married to Jesus.

     Above all, God in His word promised us “ESCAPE” from “TEMPTATION” (1 Cor. 10:13) and Jesus further prayed for us to be ‘preserved- “I do not ask that you will take them out of the world, but that you will KEEP and PROTECT THEM (Christians) from the EVIL (ONE).” Jn .17:15. (Not Rapture) Please see verses 9, 15-16.

    It is now clear enough that 1 Thes 4:13-17 which is the common text is not dealing with’Rapture’ rather it is the issue of Resurrection 1 Tthes. 4:13-14.

    While the Ten Virgins can be seen as all being Christians, the truth of the matter is these ‘Ten Virgins corresponds to the parable of the ‘Wheat’ and ‘Tares’ all having the appearance of Christianity even in their acts, making it very difficult to differentiate the fake from the genuine – a task that only Christ is capable of.

    The point therefore is, if there is to be any “rapture” just like “resurrection”, all should be seen as part of the finished work of Christ on the cross as the resurrection has always been considered.

    WHY ARE THE RAPTURE BELIEVERS CONFUSED?

    Simply because the issue of Rapture is foreign to the mind and the word of God.

    Therefore they who want to believe it have no foundation.

    Friends, nothing about Antichrist that will be on the stage through the preparation of the G5 and Coronavirus, and so the Rapture will soon take place as Christ comes to take his people away.. There is nothing  like that, it’s all a religious deception.

    LAST DAYS PREDICTIONS: THE G5 AND COVID-19 PART 2

    END OF THE WORLD (A)

    Isaiah 45:18 (Amp) For thus says the Lord — Who created the heavens, God Himself, Who formed the earth and made it, Who established it and did not create it to be a worthless waste; He formed it to be inhabited — I am the Lord, and there is no one else.

    Not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited–Therefore, Judah, lying waste during the Babylonish captivity, shall be peopled again by the exiles. The Jews, from this passage, infer that, after the resurrection, the earth shall be inhabited, for there can be no reason why the earth should then exist in vain any more than now.

    Not in vain; That is, God’s purpose in creating the earth shall be fulfilled, so shall all his counsels respecting his chosen people.

    WORLD WITHOUT END?

    Eph 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. NKJV.

    Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

    Mt 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Now looking at the above two scriptures quoted , it looks like they are contradicting themselves.

    Ephesians says world without end. Mathew says till the END OF THE WORLD.

    So what exactly is the difference?  Look at it, in Ephesian what you have is .

    “Throughout all ages=  eiv pasav tav geneav.  “Through all succeeding generations”-while the race of human beings continues to exist on the face of the earth.

    This is what you see in Ecl. 1: 4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

    But when you come to.

    Mathew 28:20, .This is what you see:

    The end= sunteleia,  soon-tel’-i-ah  – entire completion, i.e. consummation (of a dispensation):–end.

    World= aion,  ahee-ohn’  =  properly, an age;, the world; specially (Jewish) a Messianic period (present or future):–age, course, (n-)ever, (beginning of the , while the) world (began, without end).

    So you see, the world that is ending is the dispensation then of the Jewish sacrificial laws for the new order of the messianic kingdom to arise and that was what took place after Christ death on the Cross, but fully completed when the Roman Soldiers invaded Jerusalem and uprooted even the foundation stones with which the Temple was built.

    They dug up everything with the mind that they will see Gold because they found Gold in the most holy place.

    FULFILLING THE PROPHECY OF JESUS IN MATHEW 24:1-3

    “Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” NIV

     Truth is, the old Testament never ended after Christ death on the cross, not even at Pentecost because the Jews were still worshipping in the Temple and the sacrifices were on going with the high Priest.. Hence Peter could heal the man by the beautiful gate ,until 40years down the line when the Romans through General Titus came to wipe out Jerusalem and the temple. That was when the Old Testament ended. And this was the world of the Jews not the Globe-Earth.

    It was an era that ended not humanity or planet  Earth.

    See it clearly with the work of Christ as the high Priest with the sacrifice of himself..

    Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. (KJV)

    NKJV Heb 9:26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself”

    Now note the word ‘AGES’ in the NKJV, it means there were ages before the age of the law, which also ended after Christ sacrifice like we said. That means several other ‘worlds’ before that world. You see it?

    So what he came to put an end to was the Jewish religion not the end of the human race, and it was just an “age”people!

    Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

    The end of the world]  The conclusion of the Jewish dispensation, the Christian dispensation being that which shall continue till the end of time.

    To put away sin]  eiv ayethsin amartiav.= To abolish the sin-offerings; i.e. to put an end to the Mosaic economy by his one offering of himself.

    This is the fulfiment of the 70 weeks of Daniel. You see that? Look at it;-

    AMP Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks [of years, or 490 years] are decreed upon your people and upon your holy city [Jerusalem], to finish and put an end to transgression, to seal up and make full the measure of sin, to purge away and make expiation and reconciliation for sin, to bring in everlasting righteousness (permanent moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) to seal up vision and prophecy and prophet, and to anoint a Holy of Holies. “Holy of Holies”  being the Christ himself.

    “THE END OF THE WORLD” THE CLOSE OF THE AGES.

    “- – and what shall be the sign of thy coming and the end of the world ?” Math 24 : 3 KjV.

    Once this passage of’ ‘scripture is read, the larger Christian circle will immediately conjure up the thought of either the Rapture, or when the entire globe called planet Earth will blow up in smoke. But as we discovered in  the  passages above, the earth abides forever, while one generation passes away, another comes. See Eccl 1:4, Ps 104:5, Isa 45: 18.

    Above all, the Spirit declares ” …. to Him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus throughout all the ages. WORLD WITHOUT END, Amen “Eph 3:21, NKJ.

     It therefore follows that we need to have a better understanding of what we are dealing with here in Math 24:3.

    Again WHAT DO WE MEAN “THE END OF THE WORLD “THEN Math 24:3?

    The Greek word used here is Aion which means –an age, by extension. Perpetuity, (also past); by implication. the world; spec. (Jewish), a Messianic period (present or future) age, Course, eternal, (for) ever (-. more )— Strongs concordance # 165.

    Greek Lexicographers have shown that the word AGE (AION) may refer to a period of time in man’s history, whether having or not having, specific dates of demarcation. It could mean a “space of time” “Clearly defined and marked out epoch” “age” and also “life time” “Life” and ‘generation”

    So the basic sense of the word “AION” is “AGE” or “PERIOD OF EXISTENCE”.

     I think a comparison of other Bible translations on Math 24:3 will make this clearer.

    1. “–And what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the AGE” NKJ

    2. “–What will be the sign of your coming and the end of the AGE” N A S

    3. ” –What will happen to show that it is the time of your coming and the end of the AGE” GNB

    4. “–sign of your coming and the end of the AGE” NIV.

    5. “–The end of the AGE” Williams.

    6.  .” –the sign of thy coming and the close of the AGE?” RSV.

    7. “–the sign of your coming and the end of the AGE” N.E.B.

    8. “–What will be the sign of your coming and of the end-that is the completion, the consummation-of the AGE?” AMP.

    9. “~-the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” Interlinear        Translation.

    Meaning his coming was to end that age .That age is what the King James Version, calls the ‘END OF THE WORLD’.

    So you see, what we are dealing with in Math. 24 . “End of the world” is “the end of the age” Therefore we can see that “the age” Jesus was talking about, was the age of the Jewish order” For this generation (age, world) shall not past till all these things be fulfilled. Math. 24:34- KJV.)

    Dear Friends, the “end of the world” is not in the sense of which we have believed it. It is not scriptural. What the bible teaches is “the consummation of the age” and at the consummation of a particular age, another age opens in its place and the world goes on until the order determined by God is fulfilled when God shall have become all in all in His agenda.

     1 Cor 15:27 “For He [the Father] has put all things in subjection under His [Christ’s] feet. But when it says, All things are put in subjection [under Him], it is evident that He [Himself] is excepted Who does the subjecting of all things to Him. [Ps 8:6.]

    28 However, when everything is subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also subject Himself to [the Father] Who put all things under Him, so that God may be all in all [be everything to everyone, supreme, the indwelling and controlling factor of life]”. AMP.

    This then will be the consummation of all ages,that the Father is working and moving creation towards.

    Same state that Adam was, when he was in true fellowship with the Father.

    THE “DESOLATION” OF DANIEL SPOKEN OF – A KEY

    Another important key to the understanding of what we are talking about – the end of the age of the Jewish system, temple worship etc. can be found in the statement of Jesus in answer to the question of the Apostles. And they asked Him, saying,

     “Master but when these things shall be? (The destruction of the temple… ). And what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass”?

     Mind you, the temple was the object of their discussion, so don’t forget that.

     They wanted to know when this very important prophecy would be fulfilled and what signs would be forth coming to alert them.

     Hear part of what He told them in Matt. 24: 15 as a sign

    “when ye therefore shall see the abomination of DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel”…see that as a sign of the then destruction of the temple.

    Aagain.

    “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies (Roman Soldiers) then KNOW that the DESOLATION therefore is nigh” Luke 21:20. KJV.

    Did you get the link there? The people who asked for the sign, got the sign of the desolation, how on earth would the preachers of today project this into our age? What has the desolation spoken of by Daniel concerning Jerusalem got to do with us, except for spiritual application and drawing a lesson from it?  Absolutely nothing!.

    To apply this and many other verses in Math 24 to our day is the misapplication of scriptures and so missing the true meaning of the entire chapter.

     Let it be emphatically stated here that all the wars and destruction spoken of in this chapter had to do with Daniel’s holy city (the then Jerusalem) and his people (the Jews) period!.

    Read the “Throne of Blood “by Josephus, the greatest Jewish Historian.

    See what follows in the admonition of Jesus to them that once  the disciples noticed the “’desolation’ sign” they  should take the following  actions.

    “Then let them which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house, Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days. But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day” Math 24: 16-20 kjv.

    Let us think a bit. Assuming this was the Rapture that the ‘Pentecostal world’ has made us to believe. Does it mean a baby can prevent one from being raptured, or how will you explain Jesus words “woe unto them that are with child”. What about “But pray that your flight be not in the winter neither on the Sabbath day”

    Does it mean the winter or Sabbath is not a good season for one to be raptured? . You see, Jesus was only saying, one cannot tell when exactly these Roman soldiers will move in, but pray that as they certainly would come in, let it not be in the winter season, for that will be too bad a weather condition for you to be running away on the open field. And let it not be on the Sabbath day, for, you may be observing one of your feast days or resting and so taken unaware and trapped within the city.

    It is clear enough, the Romans came, camped around Jerusalem, and at God’s intervention, without anyone opposing the Romans or challenging them for a fight, they pulled up their stakes and left.

    At that sign, all the Christians who remembered the words of Jesus fled the city. Therefore when General Titus eventually came in with his armies and level the city to the ground, not a single Christian died. They saw the abomination of desolation and escaped for their dear lives as Jesus has said.

    So you see, that “world” ended with the introduction of Christianity, more especially after the death, resurrection and the out pouring of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost

    “For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands — now to appear in the presence of God for us; not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the most holy place every year with the blood of another – He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at “the end of the ages” He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” Heb 9:24-26 NKJ.

    end of the ages” (plural) Yes, spanning a whole period of 42 (14 x 3) generations, from Abraham to Christ (Math. 1: 17) when animal sacrifices were offered. The presence of Christ terminates ( ends) all of these modes of worship in other to find favour with God. Even so shall all the systems of man come to an end, as the presence of Christ is increasingly manifested through His Church which God has allowed for the past years, that Christ alone will eventually reign supreme in all of God’s creation. Amen.

    THE TRUE GOSPEL ENDS THE WORLD

    “Tell us, when shall these things be and what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world?”

     Math 24:3 kjv ( “–Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the CLOSE OF THE AGE ?” RSV.

    It is absolutely clear then, that what we are dealing with has nothing to do with the end of the globe” but rather the system of things that was in operation before the coming of Christ.” The system of things” were those things that characterised that particular age in question which the presence of Jesus the Christ came to put an end to, in order that the worship of God might be perfected, hence “the close of the age”. We shall therefore consider two more verses in math 24 to clearly indicate what we are talking about.

    THE TRUE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM ENDS THE WORLD.

    In Math 24:6 w read “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, see that ye be not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” kjv

     “When you hear of wars beginning, this does not signal my return, these must come, but the end is not yet, “tlb.

    Here Jesus is saying that wars and rumour of wars does not in any way signal His return. But unfortunately, these are the same verses of scripture that the popular TV Evangelist and ‘big men of God’ has used, and are still using till date to put men in fear of the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

    They look around the world for war ‘hot spots’ on CNN etc. and jump to say ‘here it is’, ‘this is the sign of the end of time. But Jesus said, no, that is not the sign of my corning.

    Note  also that Jesus was dealing with a particular age (Math 24:34 “¬this generation must not pass till all these things be fulfilled, “)

    indicating that, these words of Jesus has to be fulfilled before the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70.

    Looking at it from the historical perspective, the period in question was such a rough one for the Jews. In seleucia, record has it that 50,000 Jews were killed. The Jews were seriously risen against Alexandria. In the battle of the Jews and Syrians in caesurae, about 20,000 Jews were killed. Over there in Rome, within the space of 18 months, four Roman Emperors came to a violent death. A Roman historian (the Annals of tacitus) whose historical record covered this period prior to the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70, made use of languages as “war in America, the war in Britain, intrigues among the Parthians, insurrections in Gaul, commotion’s in Thrace, in Africa, Disturbances in Germany” etc.

    So you see, to the average believer in the language of Jesus, they know that ‘the end of the world’ was not referring to the end of planet earth, even as Jesus indicated. But rather to the “end of the Jewish economy” that has to do with the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, which must take place after these events.

    So to the Jewish Christians, these events were necessary as a sign of what to expect in the future, they were so certain that the sayings of Jesus were relevant to their days. To them, it has nothing to do with a future date of about 2,000 years later. They also knew it that the Lord was directly in an unmistakable manner speaking about Jerusalem and the temple.

     Again listen to this

    “And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come” Math 24:14 .. kjv,

     What “end” do you think, He was referring to? It was the fall of Jerusalem. You need to understand that the ‘WORLD’ as used here, has nothing to do with the universe or wherever there is a human being. But rather, it was referring to wherever there was a Jew at that time.

    Wherever there was a Jew was ‘the end of the world’ That is why we read that”– ye being in time past gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision in the flesh made by hands, that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world” Eph 2:11-12 KjV.

    Meaning that, only those who were in that Covenant had God in the world.

     Therefore those (the Jews) are the people that ought to receive the Gospel of the kingdom then, before the “end shall come”, for Jesus came only for the lost sheep of Israel. Math 15:24. And “the message was usually proclaimed to only the Jews —” Acts 11: 19 Jb.

    So then when we are talking of the world here, we are talking of wherever there was a Jew, i.e. the Graeco-Roman world.

    For they were destined to hear the Good News before the fall or punishment comes to Israel. The earliest testimonies of the apostles will be against the faithlessness of Judaism. Mt 10:18.

    Therefore, before the fall, the Gospel had already reached the main parts of the Roman Empire where you could locate a Jew.

     Proof of what I am saying is found in scriptures.

    For instance  “—we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations of the world for His name” Rom 1:5 KJV.

    Paul never went round all nations of the world before he died, he did not even get to Africa, but yet ‘the obedience was to all nations’. Now see this.

    “Firstly, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world “Rom 1:8.

    Can you imagine that? The faith of the Jewish Christians in Rome was being spoken of throughout the whole world?

    What life was the Jewish Christian living that we heard of here in Africa?

    What this passage means is that, among the Jews of the dispersers (James 1:1) wherever they were, the faith of the ones in Rome was being spoken of.

    Again, to the Church in Colossians, we read of “–the hope– which is come to you, as it is in ALL THE WORLD–and be not removed away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard ,and which was preached to every CREATURE which is under heaven. whereof 1 Paul am made a minister “.CoL 1:6,23. KJV.

    Mind you, this letter was written between 62-63 AD before the fall. Again, here is Paul declaring that the gospel had reached the entire world and every creature has heard it.

    Can you believe that? When did the gospel get to Africa? Can we say all creature-mankind today have heard the gospel preached to them?

     Missionaries still tell us today that there are people who have not yet heard this gospel even in Africa here.

    So what do we mean, “Gospel preached to all creatures under heaven?”. It is simply referring to wherever there was a Jew, and the Jew never lived in Africa, America, or Australia but in the Roman empire which was considered to be the” world”

    ‘The world’ therefore was wherever there was an Israelite, and the Levitical priesthood which stood for Judaism. Please see also 1 Thes 1:8.

    And so we read about the Jews, in relation to Math 24: 14,”–yet faith comes from listening to this Good News–the Good News about Christ. But what about the Jews? Have they heard Gods word? Yes, for it has gone wherever they are: The Good News has been told to the ends of the earth. Rom 10:17-18 tlb.

    And this letter was written in AD 56-58. Some 12 years before the fall of Jerusalem..

    Therefore Paul confirmed the fact that the Gospel got to all the earth before the final judgment came to Israel in AD 70. Are you following this? In fact, for the scripture to state that the goddess Diana was worshipped in Asia and THE WORLD (Acts 19:27) it is a clear indication that the world as used here speaks of the Graeco Roman Empire. For the goddess Diana was not worshipped herein Africa where am writing from.

    In summary: The world that is ending is the systems of man, religious and political institutions that are not ordained and supported by the spirit and agenda of God, but the planet Earth that is serving the purposes of God remains.

    So the “one world Government” that will give you “vaccine chips”, thereby manifesting the “Antichrist” and “the mark of the Beast”, It’s all Hoax, peddled by religious ignorance and political machinations from scriptural point of view.

    Calm your nerves. You are in good hands with Jesus in your ‘Boat’.
