Matthew 24:1-14 “And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple” (when HE left, God left); “and His Disciples came to Him for to show Him the buildings of the Temple” (this structure was one of the most beautiful in the world of that day). 2. “And Jesus said unto them, Do you not see all these things? ” (Is asked by Christ in response to the remarks made by His Disciples concerning the beauty of the Temple) “verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (was fulfilled in total exactness; it took place in 70 A.D.)
Now, many in our churches do not believe that end time teaching is relevant. I DISAGREE wholeheartedly! Why?
Why would Jesus be preaching this in Matthew in the Gospels if it wasn’t relevant? Signs of the End Times:
Matt. 24:3 -20 “And as HE sat upon the Mount of Olives” (the coming siege of Jerusalem by the Romans some thirty-seven years later, began at this exact spot where Christ was sitting), “the Disciples came unto Him privately. saying, Tell us when shall these things be? “(Has to do here with the utterance He had just given concerning the destruction of the Temple.) “and what shall be the sign of Your coming?” (refers to the Second Coming), “and of the end of the world?” (age). 4. “And Jesus answered and said unto them take heed that no man deceive you. 5. For many shall come in My Name saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many “(the greatest of these will be the Antichrist, who will claim to be the Messiah). “And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars”(has abounded from the beginning, but will accelerate during the first half of the Great Tribulation) “see that you be not troubled for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (We are very near presently to the beginning of fulfillment of what Jesus said). Jesus wanted us to be taught the End Time Prophesies and the Signs of His Coming. Why? Else some even saved and still sinning, will NOT be ready. Not all who say they are Christians will enter the Kingdom of God and make the Rapture!! (Most Catholics certainly will not unless they are saved and they aren’t taught the salvation message. Others that are saved and backsliding, (my other blog here) are not only in danger of losing their salvation, but, will not make the Rapture. No “fornicator shall enter the Kingdom of God…and right now, sin is also prevailing in many churches!).
7. “For nation shall rise against nation, and Kingdom against Kingdom;and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places ” (few places in the world, if any,
will be exempt from these judgments.) These are JUDGMENTS of Christ Himself!…And you, the reader don’t think that God is angry and His wrath is escalating at all our abortions, and same sex marriages? America, turning away from Christianity and what founded our nation? So for those out there that just preach and teach that Jesus loves us? Yes, He loves us, wants us saved, and wants us to be OBEDIENT to the Word! Else we face His WRATH! You cannot preach a half-concept! There are PARADOXES in the Gospel of Christ and our Bible. There are CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR BEHAVIOR AND WE ARE THEN AN APOSTATE CHURCH. And remember too, where is the Judgment of God going to begin? IN THE CHURCHES!! Prophesies are for a reason. They warn us against ADDING OR TAKING AWAY FROM THE BIBLE. The Catholic Church is under God’s scrutiny and wrath, as they do not preach the Gospel and Salvation…And they IGNORE THE OLD TESTAMENT AND PROPHETS. Plus they added their own cannon versions. catechism. Revelations and prophesy needs to be taught or we are taking AWAY from the Word of God!!
8-9 “All these are the beginning of sorrows ” (first half of the Tribulation…’sorrows’ will be like birthing pains.) I Cor. too..now the rise of antisemitism all over again, here in America and the world. ” Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you “(pertains to the midpoint of the Great Tribulation when the Antichrist, whom Israel thought was the Messiah, will show his true colors) :” and you shall be hated of all nations for My Name’s sake” (no nation will come to Israel’s rescue….Isn’t that what is happening now by Obama? And Israel hated Christ, but Christ is the reason the world hates Israel.) 10. “And many shall be offended” (some Jews will accept Christ, which will be an offence to others ), and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another ” (the Jews who accept Christ, will be the brunt of this animosity). Mathew 24 is the BLUEPRINT for the future. Bible prophesy is to EVALUATE WHAT MAN SAYS OF GOD’S WORD , NOT THE REVERSE! (John Hagee) Not to mention, that when we take prophesy OUT OF GOD’S WORD ,those we are teaching, have no scriptural context of what is to come, how to prepare their life, and living, and no ideas of the countries involved, nor how to even vote. It puts BLINDERS ON OUR CHURCH!
Isaiah 46:9-10 “Remember the former things of old: for I AM GOD, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me” ( the things that the Lord has done in the past, and will do in the present for those who believe Him, prove HIM to be God in a sense in which the Word cannot be applied to any other. The words, ‘I am God’, in the original, is ‘I am El…I am Elohim.’ ‘El ‘ is the Mighty One, “the Omnipotent”, Elohim, “The Godhead in all its fullness. How touching to the heart that God , who made the world sand created man, that He would condescend to plead with poor mortals to investigate Him and prove His claims.) *parenthesis from jsm Expositors Study Bible.
Every 490 years God does something, and there are changes. Israel time of peace in 40 year increments, now showed a meltdown since 2007. The WORD preached that comes out of “mans” mouth MUST BE TESTED BY THE BIBLE! Why is God allowing this economic crisis? Money has become our God. Nothing takes God by surprise. Deut. 30:9 True repentance is rewarded. “And the Lord your God will make you plenteous in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over you for good, as He rejoiced over your fathers.”
CAN YOU TRUST BIBLE PROPHESY? II Pet. 16-19 “For we have NOT followed cunningly devised fables. (heresies…taught by false teachers…Churches that have no evangelism, and guest speakers, nothing coming in…nothing going out..leads to dangers of becoming a cult.) God controls our future, and it has nothing to do with Wall st. Bible prophesy HAPPENED..IT IS NOT AN ALLEGORY! Michah 5:2″ But, you, Bethlehem, Ephratah, though you be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall he come forth unto ME who is to be Ruler in Israel; Whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting.” (The question could be asked as to WHY THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD GIVE THESE PROPHECIES in this fashion, having little or no chronological order? The answer probably falls in the same category as to why the Lord, in His earthly Ministry, mostly spoke in parables. [Luke 8:10]. The phrase , ‘But you Bethlehem Ephratah,’ speaks of the birthplace of Christ. The phrase, ‘Though you be little among the thousands of Judah. This was prophesied by Jacob LONG before ..[Gen. 49:10].) jsm Expositors
Why prophetic study? Hosea 1:1 “The word of the LORD that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, Kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, King of Israel.” (The name Hosea, means “SALVATION”. He was a contemporary of Isaiah. The phrase , “in the days…”refers to four kings of Jusah, “Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah.” One “king of Israel, ” the Northern Kingdom is mentioned, “Jeroboam “. Hosea’s ministry began when he was a young man, while “Uzziah” was on the Throne of Judah and “Jeroboam” was on the Throne of Israel.) See also Matt 2:14, Ps 78:18, Matt 11:12, Is 45 , Hos 6:2, I Cor 15:3-4. In l Cor. 15:51-54, Jesus reveals “the mystery” a confirmation of the prophets of old. …”in a moment , in the twinkling of an eye..at the last trump..for the trumpet will sound”..(The Rapture, which proclaims how long it will take for this change to take place…The lion will lay down with the lamb…II Pet 1:19 when Daystar rises…Daystar is the light that precedes the dawn in Jerusalem…light that brings REVELATION, a new day, the age is about to end! Look up! Jesus is coming soon!
Ok..FOR YOU WHO THINK ALL WILL MAKE THE RAPTURE? WRONG…You don’t know what your talking about. Many that think they are Christians are going to STAY RIGHT HERE! Heb. 9:28 “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many “(the Cross was God’s answer to sin, and in fact, the only answer), ” and unto them who look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto Salvation.” (This refers to the Second Coming. “without sin” refers to the fact that the Second Coming will NOT be to ATONE for sin, for that should be carried out at the Cross, but will bring all the results of Salvation to this world, which refers to all that HE did at the Cross. We now only have the ‘firstfruits’.” Rom. 8:23. If a “Christian is backsliding etc..ie many not saved in “Christian” churches? You are staying right here! Thats why prophesy is so important. We need not only our “history, in the Old Testament…and Jesus prophesy in Isaiah 53…but, of what is to come?
Gen. 15:13-14 Know for a fact (Jews) in Egypt 400 years….God will judge Egypt, and any nation that curses israel, God will judge. Ex. 11:2 The wealth of the wicked came to them …All 400 years worth, Deut. 18:18-19. Prophet spoken of was Jesus. How relevant is that for prophesy? In Ex. 1:22 Pharaoh felt male child would overthrow Egypt. ie. the Passover…Both Moses and Jesus for a time were in Egypt. Matt 2:14. Both rejected for a time, Ex 20, Ex 32:1, Matt 27:21, Deut. 34:10 Both spoke to God…Matt 24 above, was JESUS PROPHETIC MESSAGE, in which you cannot take that from the Gospels, without the entire prophesies from the Old Testament…for too, your not going to Heaven until your sins are washed away! We are an Apostate church now. There is too much political deception, under government and secular humanism, abortion, lack of prayer, changes in laws to take Christianity and God out of our schools, laws, and Constitution. Where are the preachers to give warning? That’s what happened when Hitler took over the Third Reich. Is anybody listening? The only preachers I hear that preach it, is John Hagee, Jack Van Impe, Perry Stone, Dr. James Kennedy, and Jimmy Swaggart….The first thing I did when I got
saved in 1982 was purchase 50 audio tapes on Revelations from Swaggarts ministries, and I
sat there night after night, transcribing all 50 tapes and then retyped. I studied, Bible prophesy and end times since then.. Read Jack Van Impe’s book “Revelation Revealed”…This, tying to world news and politics is the only thing that interests me. God put me here…and here I’ve stayed for 27 years! The above and continuing following is a teaching I sat taking notes on week after week from John Hagee. God Bless these men of God.
America is in the midst of a moral breakdown. Attacking gays is wrong, but them attacking us for our moral beliefs? Is wrong also! Gay marriage is an abomination to God. Lev 18:22 and it is a sin! Does anyone preach sin anymore? “I am the Lord…MY word shall prevail”..We are like Sodom and Gomorrah now…anything goes! Rom. 1:26 (We have a decision to go our own way). It is choice. Yes, God loves us…But He hates the sin! He hates perversion! And God CAN turn it around, no matter what the secular idiots say! On 9/11 God was deeply saddened…but, for years we have told God to get out of our life…So he did. Now we are back to that same complacency. Ann Graham said this too. Matt 24:3-14 When this gospel is preached in all the world, and Bible prophesy is accurate …and with all the Satellite now and Hagee’s going into 134 countries, and Swaggarts about the same…EVEN Iran.. The Gospel has now been preached in all the world. Watch! Look up! “Broad is the way, ” Hagee taught, that lead to your destruction…we are waiting now for the sound of the trumpet!” Preach this! The church needs to be SPOT FREE…it cannot be without blemish if the prophesies are not preached! I don’t think there are many in
my church that watches one Christian tv program. Frankly , I don’t get it. Everyone is busy…I watch some of these shows, when God puts me in “hunger” mode needing the word, sometimes for 10 hours straight. And He gives me everything through the Holy Spirit to choose from…one by one..on 4 different stations now.
Revelations 4:1 The door is the door of invitation.. God takes John up to Heaven Rev. 4:4. If THIS wasn’t so important….Why would God give all this to John? You cannot overlook the prophets and Revelations. When John sees Heaven, they were all wearing crowns and robes. (the church is in Heaven..and will one day be right over Israel. One fourth of humanity will die in Armageddon including America. (4 horsemen). Matt 24:15 , Joel 3:2. All nations including America, will give account of “my” people Israel, because “they divided up my land!” And what is Washington proposing over and over, including Condi Rice…now this administration…Dividing the land..and God said NO! And thank God, Netanyahu, says, NO! That land is God’s and Netanyahu knows it. God is about ready to bring us into such horrific judgment. He is not a milk-toast…He will come back, not preaching love, but, with eyes of fire, and feet of brass…his mouth a 2-edged sword. If love doesn’t work getting someone to salvation and a “milk-toast gospel…” try telling people the truth…and what is coming! The wrath of God will come on America…(and this woman believes we will have another terrorist attack soon). 100,000 Jews will be killed in the next final war and God’s wrath will be unleashed! Matt .24:16-19, Dan. 11:31. Iran has promised to wipe out Israel..(Islamic Messiah will appear and live under global shariah.
We are living in a dangerous time…the threshold is here! The prophets and witnesses are there to sound a warning..to give us signs to this mystery….Why isn’t it being preached? Ahmadinejad’s dream is to crush global (western) economics. This is very easy for him to do. Matt 24:20 “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter (bad weather) , neither on the Sabbath Day (concerns the strict religious observance of the Sabbath, doesn’t permit travel even Rapture).If we pray it can change how and when we go on the Rapture. The Jews are coming home! Great tribulation will be 7 years of horrific judgments. The world will follow the Antichrist, but Jesus comes to rule with iron. Some believe in post trib, pre trib, mid trib. Me? I guess I believe in the latter, and we will face some of the tribulation. The church needs to come together, be preached its’ prophecies, and be without spot or blemish. Jesus will kill all those that hate Israel, and judge for the Holocaust, and all the anti-semitism…Out of His mouth will come a sword. Rev. 19:17-21ie the birds eat the flesh of Kings…The birds will eat all the flesh of those who die in Armageddon. The bodies and blood will run…and be 25 hands high (on a horse up to the bridle). The buzzards will eat, the flesh of all who go against God! Matt 24:29-30,31. Is 27:12-13. Matt 24:32:35 . The Jewish people are the apple of Gods eye..Zech. 12:10 Jews! And with grace and supplication! No one knows the date and hour…But, the church is in Heaven now! (per John Hagee not me) Matt. 24:37, 40,41 There are faithful and unfaithful Servants …HOW we serve God now! The unfaithful go to hell. Rom. 1:1 , II Pet 1:1, Rev. 1:1..John the SERVANT..Gal 5:13, we are to serve one another…Rom 12:10-13.
Jesus is coming soon! The world is set now, all the players and countries are in place…(my other blog here, “Israel and Bible Prophesy”). We need to get ready. All the sins of the US, abortion, Gay’s, now in Boy Scouts, all that is happening with rapes in the Pentagon, we are facing now more and more of God’s wrath. For we have made “strange bedfellows” of our enemies. So did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. We NEED to preach and teach our prophets and Revelations….and I saw a White horse…and his Name was Glory….King of Kings…Master….I await you Jesus and the sound of the trumpet…I will be your humble servant, until you take me home……
