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.

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 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

The False Prophet Croaking out his frog spirit

The False Prophet Croaking out his frog spirit

A review of the Popes speech to the European Parliament in the light of Bible prophecy"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of..."

On Tuesday the 25th of November 2014 an historic moment occurred in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Pope Francis addressed the leaders of Europe displaying the power and influence the Catholic church has at the heart of Europe.

The Pope Addresses The European Parliament

As is typical of the approach of Pope Francis, his address was not controversial or aggressive. His genteel mannerisms, positive ecumenical messages, cheerful smile and friendly charisma have served him well at the start of his reign and helped him earn the prestigious title of man of the year for 2013. These hallmark characteristics were used to great effect as the Pope addresses Europe's top brass.

The very fact that this religious leader is able to influence the leaders of Europe in this way, helping to give them advice and exhortation, shows the great authority the Church has in the heights of power in Europe. No other religious leader has been given such a privilege as the papacy. Most of Europe's leaders are self proclaimed Catholics, most belonging to so called Christian Democrat parties (like Angela Merkel) and so to them it must actually be surprising they don't have the Pope speak more often, seeing that he is supposed to be God's representative on earth. His words will certainly not have gone ignored by the fervent Catholic faithful amongst the leaders he addresses.

Pope Francis addresses the European Parliament 25th November 2014

The content of his address is most interesting to consider. The Vatican radio reported this summary: 
"Pope Francis called on a “haggard” and “lonely” Europe to recover its role as a world protagonist, its identity as a defender of the transcendent dignity of man, the poor, the migrant, the persecuted, the old and the young, to recover its soul: Christianity."

For anyone who has studied the history of the Church during the dark ages, this summery of the content of the Popes speech will resound with the echoes of hypocrisy. The pope asks Europe to consider the persecuted. Consider the persecution of Protestants and Jews of ages past which suffered so cruelly at the hands of the Catholic inquisition. Was Europe a defender of the transcendent dignity of man as it watched people being burnt at the stake for owning an English Bible? The Pope asks Europe to consider the poor having travelled from The Vatican, one of the most prestigious buildings in the world, whilst in Rome, a few miles away, there are very poor communities of people suffering. the key point reported though is that the Pope wanted Europe to recover its soul. Christianity. By this of course he means The Catholic version of Christianity. A Christianity so far removed from the truth of the Bible it is barely recognisable. It is in his interest to push this concept for in ages past the Papacy enjoyed much more power than it does now as it was part of the political powers of Europe and not simply a religion. the papacy lost this temporal power in the 1800s and has been working slowly but surely to try and regain it. It has come someway but it in no way enjoys the tyrannical power it once had (thankfully we might add). The leadership of Europe from a religious perspective though is something the Pope pushed. Here are a few extracts:

"I consider to be fundamental not only the legacy that Christianity has offered in the past to the social and cultural formation of the continent, but above all the contribution which it desires to offer today, and in the future, to Europe’s growth.  This contribution does not represent a threat to the secularity of states or to the independence of the institutions of the European Union, but rather an enrichment.  This is clear from the ideals which shaped Europe from the beginning, such as peace, subsidiarity and reciprocal solidarity, and a humanism centred on respect for the dignity of the human person.

I wish, then, to reiterate the readiness of the Holy See and the Catholic Church, through the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe (COMECE), to engage in meaningful, open and transparent dialogue with the institutions of the European Union.   I am likewise convinced that a Europe which is capable of appreciating its religious roots and of grasping their fruitfulness and potential, will be all the more immune to the many forms of extremism spreading in the world today, not least as a result of the great vacuum of ideals which we are currently witnessing in the West, since “it is precisely man’s forgetfulness of God, and his failure to give him glory, which gives rise to violence”.

The pope is here reminding the leaders of Europe of the statement written into law in the Lisbon treaty that Europe has to work with the Church. He dresses it up in nice words but the bottom line is he is asking for MORE influence in the direction Europe takes. This is exactly what we would expect from Bible prophecy.

The Pope was focused on the idea of "humanism"

The Pope focused on the idea of "humanism" (image source: Catholic Harold)

Before briefly considering a few Bible prophecies though, I just want to note that the single core theme which the whole talk is peppered with, is the doctrine of humanism. The ideas of human rights and unity on the basis of this were brought out time and time again. Here are a few extracts:

"Recognition of the importance of human rights came about as the result of a lengthy process, entailing much suffering and sacrifice, which helped shape an awareness of the unique worth of each individual human person.  This awareness was grounded not only in historical events, but above all in European thought, characterized as it is by an enriching encounter whose “distant springs are many, coming from Greece and Rome, from Celtic, Germanic and Slavic sources, and from Christianity which profoundly shaped them”, thus forging the very concept of the “person”... Today, the promotion of human rights is central to the commitment of the European Union to advance the dignity of the person, both within the Union and in its relations with other countries.  This is an important and praiseworthy commitment... Promoting the dignity of the person means recognizing that he or she possesses inalienable rights which no one may take away arbitrarily, much less for the sake of economic interests... ...I believe, therefore, that it is vital to develop a culture of human rights which wisely links the individual, or better, the personal aspect, to that of the common good, of the “all of us” made up of individuals, families and intermediate groups who together constitute society.  In fact, unless the rights of each individual are harmoniously ordered to the greater good, those rights will end up being considered limitless and consequently will become a source of conflicts and violence... ... A Europe which is no longer open to the transcendent dimension of life is a Europe which risks slowly losing its own soul and that “humanistic spirit” which it still loves and defends..."

We clearly see here then, from the mouth of the Pope, his adoption of humanism. The concept that all humans have certain rights and that humans can answer the world’s problems themselves. He does not mention the problem of sin. He does not mention the principles of Yahweh God of Israel. This man is standing firmly with the powers of this world and seeking to harmonise and make pallet able his version of Christianity with the secular humanistic leaders of the day. this man it seems, is very cleverly seeking more influence and power from the European institution in the coming years.

The 6th vial

So why is this of interest to the student of Bible prophecy? Well because the book of Revelation says this about the time period in which we live, in Revelation 16:

"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
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. 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."

In the next verse, verse 15, Jesus, the author of Revelation though Gods spirit, reveals that it is at this time, at the time of the great battle of God Almighty, that he is revealed from heaven. It is at this time he returns to the earth in an open way.

The symbols used in Revelation are difficult to grasp at first sight. However we thought we'd spend the remaining few moments of this week’s edition to briefly look at the symbols of the frog spirit, the false prophet and the beast.

Frog Spirit

The frog spirits are clearly a false teaching which permeates through the doctrines of those alien to God’s ways in the time just before Christ return. They are Devils or idols of worship. Concepts which men will live and die by. It is these teachings that will cause the great controversy of the time of the end which we speak of often in Bible in the news. The conflict is particularly over Israel and their land as is recorded in Ezekiel 38 for example.

The frog in scripture is only really used in connection with the plagues of Egypt and this helps us somewhat to unlock this symbol. Consider these concepts which connect with the plague of frogs:

  • They came based on a false promise of liberty - Exodus 8:8
  • They affected all levels of society - Exodus 8:2-4
  • They corrupted -Exodus 8:14

Taking just these three ideas, and there are more, what doctrine do we see so passionately preached by the evangelists of our society which fits? Well, the doctrine of humanism ticks all of the boxes. The belief in humans beings are able to be independent of God. The idea that, as long as a human does not directly hurt another human then they can do whatever is right in their own eyes. The idea that all human opinions are valid. This is a false idea of Liberty. It basically makes no opinion valid, especially not God's. It kills the concept of truth. It is a doctrine which makes men apathetic to the true problem of sin against almighty God and that they have a nature bent towards disobedience to His ways. Humanism, human rights and equality has really only been developed in modern times since the French Revolution but it can now be found in all levels of society. It has corrupted many and brought them to hate or become apathetic to the God of the Bible and His Holy principles. We should however expect such ideas to exist in the time which remains before Christ's return for God will use these beliefs of man to bring about the great battle of Armageddon after which He will reveal His son to the world as the Bible outlines in its prophecies.

The False Prophet

We have read in the prophecy that one called a 'false prophet' will open his mouth and croak out this frog like spirit. Who is the false prophet? Some have suggested perhaps Mohammed. However one has to consider a couple, of key facts in order to identify the false prophet correctly.

In the book of Revelation this is the first time this symbol has been used. We might ask why this is? Surely it is telling us that this is the first time we see this entity as a prophet. If this is correct we know when the False prophet appears on the world scene because his first appearance is here in the sixth vial in Revelation 16. The sixth vial begins with the drying up of the Ottoman power which controlled the river Euphrates and this occurred from 1820 onwards. Whoever the false prophet is therefore is someone who appears as such AFTER 1820 and not before.

Drawning of the 1st Vatican Council where the Pope declared infallibility 1868

Drawing of the 1st Vatican Council where the Pope declared infallibility - 1868

Mohammed and Islam have already made an appearance in Revelation chapter 9 which describes events around 600 AD - surely if this is what was meant then he would of been called a false prophet then instead of the "star which fell from heaven” - and their teachings have not changed since 1820. Islam does not fit the criteria of the time periods here.

However the Catholic Church's doctrines have dramatically changed since 1820. It was in the 1850s that the Papacy was stripped of its temporal powers and was removed from having any political authority in Europe. Shortly after this the first Vatican council was called by Pope Pius 9th in 1868. It was here that the Papacy, having no political authority left declared its dogma of Papal infallibility. The idea that when the Pope spoke ex-cathedra that he was in fact infallible.

Here then we have the papacy rising as a prophet, and a false one at that. It does this after the drying up of the power of the Euphrates and so it fits perfectly with the prophecy. Although much more could be said we hope we have demonstrated that the institution of the papacy answers to the symbol of the false prophet. As we have seen in the address of the Pope to the European Parliament, we are witnessing the beginnings of the croaking of the frog like spirit of humanism which will come from the Pope and influence the Kings of the earth to gather for the Battle of God Almighty.

The Beast

Who is the beast of the prophecy? Well one only has to study Daniel 7 to realise the beast is a symbol of the Kingdom of men in the West. This symbol of a beast is used in Revelation which outlines its various phases from the time the Revelation was given, around AD90, right up until Christ returns. It is a symbol of the united political powers of Europe which have recently revived as Revelation 17:8 predicts.

Revelation 17 is a prophecy all about the state of the Beast just before Christ returns. It speak about its revival which tells us of the uniting of its ancient Roman territories and powers. It speaks in verse 13 of the kings of its system which give over their free will, sovereignty, political power and strength to its ideals.

Upon this revived political system sits a harlot woman. A symbol used in our scriptures of a community of people who have not been faithful to God's true ways. This woman answers to the community of the Catholic Church, who through the work of their figurehead leader, the false prophet, are beginning to take up this position of authority in Europe. They will sit on the political power of Europe as this harlot that sits on the beast. Steering it in the direction she wants it to go. The speech of the Pope to the European Parliament then is a great sign of the times as he sort for the church to begin "meaningful, open and transparent dialogue with the institutions of the European Union."

The Lamb

True believers though will not be dismayed at the state of the fickle positions and clever words of a wolf in sheets clothing. We are encouraged by these things for we know they must come about for they have been prophesied in God’s word long ago. As we see these things happening around us we realise the power of the hand of God. We marvel at His foresight and are humbled at His revelations to His servants in revealing the signs of the times we live in. Who are we to have such blessings?
