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.

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 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 Prophecy Provides Evidence That God Exists For All To SEE

Catholic Church Fulfills Bible Prophecy

The influence of the Pope and Catholicism over "the kings of the earth and of the whole world" is fulfilling Bible Prophecy.

UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon visits the Vatican.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon meets Pope Francis

In April 2013 the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon made his way to the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis. This gives us a glimpse of the power of the Papacy in our days, just as we would expect from Bible prophecy. This is Matt Davies joining you again for another Bible in the News.

A meeting of two minds that think alike.

Reports stated that "Once he saw the Pope", Mr Ki-moon" he bowed his head before greeting him"  and as he was greeted by the Pope he said, “Your Holiness, it's a great honor for me to have an audience with you.”

Just before journalists were ushered out, he was reported to have said, "The United Nations and the Holy See share common goals and ideals."

The Vatican press office referred to the UN Secretary of state as "His Excellency Mr. Ban Ki-moon." It also stated that "The meeting, which follows in the tradition of audiences granted by Popes to the various Secretaries-General of the United Nations who have held that position over the years, seeks to express the appreciation that the Holy See has for that Organization’s central role in the preservation of peace in the world, in the promotion of the common good of humanity, and in the defence of fundamental human rights."

The press release continued:
"During the course of the cordial conversations, issues of mutual interest were discussed, in particular: situations of conflict and serious humanitarian emergency, especially in Syria and other places such as the Korean peninsula and the African continent where peace and stability are threatened. The problem of human trafficking was noted, in particular that of women, refugees, and migrants. The UN Secretary-General, who recently began his second term in this role, outlined his project for his second five-year mandate, which focuses, among other things, on conflict prevention, international solidarity, and equitable and sustainable economic development.

Pope Francis also recalled the Catholic Church’s contribution... in support of the entirety of human dignity and in promoting a Culture of Encounter that helps to realize the UN’s highest institutional goals."

Another news report stated:
"After their private meeting, Ban introduced to the pope, members of his entourage, which included his wife, his Argentine chief of staff and the U.N. undersecretary for disarmament.

Pope Francis went around the room giving each guest a small boxed rosary, which still carries the coat of arms of Pope Benedict XVI; a papal aide said they are awaiting the arrival of rosaries with Pope Francis' emblem.

Pope Francis spoke a few words of English during the meeting. Presenting a mosaic to Ban, the pope said, "This is for you." Then he immediately switched to Italian to describe it as a view of Rome.

Ban gave the pope a blue-bound tome containing the text of the United Nations Charter in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. He told the pope the charter reflects "the goals and objectives of human beings, which you also promote."

The power of the papacy
These events show us the power of the Papacy. No other religious leader has so much influence in the modern world. Which other religious Imam or Church leader would have the UN's plans for the next 5 years outlined to them?

As Bible students we should expect to see reports like these, as the power of the Papacy grows, to fulfil its role as the influencer of nations in the coming world crisis - set out in Bible prophecy.

Since the Papacy lost its temporal, political power back in 1870 - when Garibaldi stripped it from him, it has had to make do with simply being a religious voice. This was emphasised by the Pope, who, in that same year of 1870, declared the doctrine of Papal infallibility for the first time.

As time is going on, the Papacy is becoming better and better at influencing those in the world who wield the political power of the day.

This is exactly as the Bible prophesies.

The beast and the false prophet
In Revelation chapter 19:20 we read:
"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."

So here we read of the symbolic destruction of two symbolic entities. One called "the false prophet" and one called "the beast".

The "beast" is a symbol used of political European empires which existed around the Mediterranean. Consider for example Daniel 7 which goes through 4 of these beast systems. It depicts the powers of Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece as various beast symbols. The last beast is called "the fourth beast" which relates to the Roman Empire and its influence exists up until Christ destroys it in verse 26 and 27.

In Revelation, this fourth beast is described in more detail - as four beast 'phases' but all of these phases denote the same beast system, just in different periods of existence down through time.

Rev 12 - Dragon Phase - Pagan Roman Empire
Rev 13:1-10 - Sea Beast Phase - The Christian Roman Empire 313AD-800AD
Rev 13:11-18 - East Beast phase - The Holy Roman Empire 800AD-1870AD
Rev 17 - Whore Riding Beast Phase - European Superstate - The Latter Days

So this beast in our day represents the political powers that sit on the beast territories, namely Europe.

In Revelation 19 we read of this powers destruction by Christ. 
Catholic Prophecies of the Book of Revelations
The distinctive symbol of the false prophet
Notice what the false prophet is mentioned as doing - "the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast". Now this links back to another passage in Revelation and a characteristic of a former beast phase. In Revelation 13, speaking of the symbol of the earth beast  we read:

"And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live." Revelation 13:14

So within this beast phase which existed between 800AD-1870AD, an aspect of the political beast was religious in nature and it "wrought miracles before" the previous beast phase (the sea beast) and "deceived". The very things that the "false prophet" does in Revelation 19. So what does this tell us? It tells us that a change takes place amongst the political organisation of the beast power.  Clearly it’s telling us that the religious aspect of the earth beast becomes separated from the political aspect. It becomes so separate that a new symbol is required for it within Revelation, that of a "false prophet". In other words, the religious aspect is no longer directly a political power but only an influencing prophet - and a false one at that.

As we've mentioned - this separation of the Papacy from its political powers occurred in 1870 when Garibaldi took it from the Pope. Since that time the Papacy has only been a religious voice.

The Sixth Vial
We would like to direct our listeners to this month's Bible Magazine the general theme of which is "Gentile times in the Apocalypse". On page 30 we have exposited for us the time period we are living in, known as "the sixth vial" defined as being from 1820 - around the time when the decline of the Ottoman empire commenced. This is depicted in the Bible as the drying up of the river Euphrates.

The record of this sixth vial period is found in Revelation chapter 16:12-16. During this time we read that Christ returns to the earth to establish God's Kingdom in verse 15.

Also within this time period the symbol of the "false prophet" is first introduced to us.

The requirements of the prophecy dictate that during the period from the drying up of the Euphrates, around 1820, to our day today, a religious leader would appear who would be part of a system which could be traced directly back to having political power with the beast system. Clearly the only power existing today which fits this requirement is the Papacy - whose current status of being only a religious leader without any political power came about in 1870 within the time period of the sixth vial. Incidentally this is one reason why the false prophet symbol cannot be related to Islam (as some commentators suggest) because Islam appeared in the sixth century, not during the time period of the sixth vial.

This false prophet appears in our time and so we should be able to look at world affairs and see the growing influence of this symbolic power.

"go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world"
So what does this have to do with the recent news stories of the Pope meeting with the UN Secretary General? Well in verse 13 of Revelation 16 we read how John sees 'frog like spirits' come out of the mouth of the false prophet.  What is this a symbol of? Well, amongst other things, the frog in scripture is associated with a false hope of human  liberty (Exodus 8:1-2) and so we relate this to the call of humanism which seeks to liberate mankind from restrictions. We link it with the ideas reflected in the Vatican's press release of "the promotion of the common good of humanity, and in the defense of fundamental human rights."

What is the effect of the frog like spirits? Verse 14 records "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty."

So just before Christ returns, the false prophet will be influential in calling kings to muster their armies and to fight. The false prophet will speak of false liberty and of the defence of human rights. He will have the ear of the "kings of the earth and of the whole world".

Therefore, as we live in the sixth vial period and as we await the coming of Messiah we can have confidence in Bible prophecy. We see a religious leader who is part of a religious system which used to wield direct political power in Europe - now separate and fulfilling the destiny which scripture has set out for him, that of an influencing false prophet. We see this as the Papacy whose Popes have been croaking its doctrine of “Chrisitian Humanism” and "Ecumenicism" louder and louder since it became a false prophet in 1870 - the most recent Pope Francis continuing the chorus. This influence surely will grow and grow until, when the time is right and all the pieces of the prophetic jigsaw puzzle are in place, this false prophet will indeed influence those nations who heed its croakings to gather for the great battle of Armageddon.

Let us continue to watch these signs of our times together as we see the day of our Lord Jesus Christ’s return to this earth approaching.
