God's Plan for this World and You

 

THE view of planet earth, seen from outer space, is very beautiful indeed. Confirmation of this has come from the astronauts who have gazed upon it. The earth is the fairest jewel in God's creation and it is the chosen place in the whole universe where He has promised to reveal His Kingdom in all its glory. That is why it is so beautiful.

 

The earth, of all the planets in the solar system, is the one that is perfectly suited to all forms of life and the one that orbits at exactly the right distance from the sun to provide comfortable conditions for the human race.

Are mainstream Christian teachings correct?


The true Gospel can suffer from preconceived ideas and misinterpretations.

You owe it to yourself and your family to be sure of what it is you believe, the Apostle Paul has told us to "work out our own salvation with fear and trembling"  Philippians 2:12

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Dinosaur Problem

T Rex Tissue Stumps Evolutionists

T-Rex Soft Tissue Disproves Evolution

Clip from “T.R.U.T.H. About the Dinosaurs” DVD

Is there something wrong when a supposedly 70 million-year-old tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur is found with soft tissue—including blood vessels and even whole cells? This is what a U.S. researcher reported in late March.  Biologist Mary Schweitzer discovered this soft tissue when it was necessary to break a T. rex’s huge thigh bone.

Schweitzer said that the vessels were flexible and some could even be squeezed. After extensive testing, there was confirmation that this T. rex bone even had hemoglobin (red blood cells).

This discovery is unexplained by evolutionary thinking, which suggests that millions and millions of years have passed since this “King of Dinos” met its demise. Schweitzer is puzzled and cannot understand why this bone was not mineralized. “It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually, because it flies in the face of everything we understand about how tissues and cells degrade,” she said on MSNBC.

“It’s very amazing. It’s utterly shocking, actually….”

—Dr. Mary Schweitzer

In 1995, Joe Taylor, a professional dinosaur excavator and a biblical creationist, was curious about the hip girdle of another T. rex that was found in 1916. It was found in the same Hell Creek Formation where Schweitzer’s T. rex bone was found. Taylor was amazed that this 65 million-year-old specimen still had the appearance of skin on the sacral vertebrae. He sent a sample to Azusa Pacific College in California and had it scanned with an electron microscope by Professor Mark Armitage, who found that the bone had collagen filaments intact inside the bone. The presence of collagen suggests that this supposedly 65 million year old fossil was not completely fossilized. Armitage states, “It can’t be but a few thousand years old.”

So the Theory of Evolution is just that ‘A Theory’ that has never been proved and evidence like this says it can’t be and isn’t true.

Bible Truth

 Truth Seeker - True Bible Teaching

The Bible is our only true source for the Truth!

 

If we claim to follow Christ we should trust in the Scriptures as confidently as Jesus and his Apostles did:

Jesus said that: The Scripture cannot be broken.  (John 10:35)

 

Paul said that: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Peter said that: For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21)

The things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven (1 Peter 1:12)

 

True faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

The Middle East ConflictA Nation Always in the News

It seems that Israel is never out of the news for long. Despite its small size and insignificance compared to the G8 nations, the spotlight of the world's attention falls frequently on this troubled country.

The World could give a few reasons why this might be;

  • A (generally) pro-western state surrounded by (generally) anti-western neighbours.
  • A (nominally) Judaistic nation surrounded by (nominally) Islamic Nations.
  • The powerful Jewish lobby in the United States and elsewhere, mustering support.
  • A capital city (Jerusalem), holy to three different (and often conflicting) religions; Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
  • One piece of land (Canaan), occupied by two nations, Israel and PalestineIsrael Map

However, the Bible Old Testament (a book holy to Islam, Judaism and Christianity) has a simpler explanation:

Isaiah 43:10 “You are my witnesses,” says the LORD, “With my servant whom I have chosen; that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he. Before me there was no God formed, neither will there be after me.

Isaiah 44:8 Don’t fear, neither be afraid. Haven’t I declared it to you long ago, and shown it? You are my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? Indeed, there is not. I don’t know any other Rock.”

The Bible says that Israel are God's witnesses. Through them, we can see God at work, bringing about His plan and purpose for the Earth.

When Britain pulled out of Israel in 1948, no-one gave them a chance against the combined armies of the Arab nations around them and yet they managed to survive and grow. In the Six Day War, Israel again pulled off a decisive visual against overwhelming odds.

These are signs that God is with Israel - not because they deserve His support, but because The LORD has chosen them as His witness and because of the promises made to Abraham, Isaac, Joseph and David.

Genesis 26:4 I will multiply your seed as the stars of the sky, and will give to your seed all these lands. In your seed will all the nations of the earth be blessed,
Exodus 32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by Jerusalem Wailing Wallyour own self, and said to them, ‘I will multiply your seed as the stars of the sky, and all this land that I have spoken of I will give to your seed, and they shall inherit it forever.’” 1 Kings 2:45 But king Solomon shall be blessed, and the throne of David shall be established before The LORD forever.”

These and many other verses detail the promises that God made to his faithful followers concerning the land of Canaan. It is because God keeps His promises that Israel inhabit the land, not because they are in any way deserving.

Why so Much Conflict?

When the Israelites first entered the land that God had promised them, they were commanded to drive out all the nations that had moved into Canaan during Israel's four-hundred year stay in Egypt. This was a "shadow" or parallel with the life of a Christian. The principle was separation from the world and all its evil influences. But Israel disobeyed God and allowed pagan peoples to remain within the borders of Israel and slowly but surely, these pagan, worldly influences corrupted the Israelites, bringing upon them God's displeasure. God's anger was so great that He brought other nations against Israel, such as Babylon, Assyria, Greece and Egypt, in order to punish Israel for their disobedience.

Eventually, following Israel's rejection of Jesus as their Messiah, God's anger brought Rome to completely flatten the land and take the people into captivity, once again.

This time, the dispersion or diaspora, lasted about 1,900 years, during which time, the mixed Arab race known as the Palestinians became established in the land, under a succession of "masters", including Moors, Crusaders and Turks, to name a few. But because of His promises, God, following the Second World War and the persecution of the Jews, brought about their return to the land. As we have mentioned, this was just the start of their battle for survival against their largely hostile neighbours (one could also say relatives, as the Arabs are also descended from Abraham).

Current Conflict is part of God's Plan

It is the purpose of Bible Prophecy to give encouragement and direction to those who diligentlyIsrael Conflict seek God. With the benefit of hindsight, it is much easier to see God's guiding hand at work.

Isaiah 43:5 Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; Isaiah 54:7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. Jeremiah 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. Ezekiel 11:17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

These and many other scripture talk about the restoration of Israel and against all odds, in 1948 these prophecies came true - but this is only part of the story.

Jeremiah 3:17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

Psalm 102: 18 This will be written for the generation to come. A people which will be created will praise Yah. 19 For he has looked down from the height of his sanctuary. From heaven, The LORD saw the earth; 20 to hear the groans of the prisoner; to free those who are condemned to death; 21 that men may declare the name of The LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem; 22 when the peoples are gathered together, the kingdoms, to serve The LORD.

These scriptures - and again, we could pick many more - talk about Israel being restored, but also a greater gathering of the Nations. We read also of the establishment of God's throne in Jerusalem. This situation is tied in with the return of Jesus Christ to the Earth. Connected to this event are many prophecies concerning an event that everyone has heard of - Armageddon.

This may mean different things to different people, but the biblical reference is to a specific battle on the mountains of Israel, when the "King of the North" will sweep down and attack a peaceful Israel. Israel will be successfully defended by the Lord Jesus and all those in opposition to him will be destroyed (for more details, please read the whole of Ezekiel chapter 38).

Ezekiel 38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? 15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: 16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. 17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by [6] my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?

It is quite common, every time Israel is attacked, that Bible scholars look to the prophecies of Ezekiel chapter 38, hoping and praying that the attacks are a fulfilment of the prophecy and Armageddon and the return of Christ to set up his Kingdom on Earth will soon come to pass.

Such "watching and waiting" for Christ's return is commendable and we would not want to discourage or criticise. Rather, we would want to qualify these expectations with the following points:

  1. The prophecy in Ezekiel talks about a peaceful Israel being attacked.
  2. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night.
  3. Mark 13:32 But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

The first point suggests that much as we would like it to be, current conditions do not yet match those Bible references to Christ's return; Israel is not currently dwelling peacefully in unwalled towns. The second point reminds us that no matter how closely and carefully we watch, the return of Christ to Earth will catch the world by surprise.

The third point should warn us not to believe those who say that Jesus has already returned or that he will come back on such and such a day or in a certain year; we simply cannot know.

It is well worth reading also, Matthew chapter 24 or Luke 21 which deal with what are known as the "Signs of the Times", or follow this link to a further article.

Summary

We cannot tell for certain whether the current events in Israel will specifically lead to the return of Jesus and the setting up of the Kingdom of God or whether they are part of the general "wars and rumours of wars", which is one of the Signs in the World that Christ's return is not far off.

Rather than speculate too much, we should rather concentrate on living each day as if it was our last and making sure that we are in a constant state of readiness for the return of Jesus - whenever it may be.

Matthew 24: 33

“33 Even so you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things are accomplished. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. 36 But no one knows of that day and hour, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 42 Watch therefore, for you don’t know in what hour your Lord comes.”
