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.

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.

 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.

Turkey in Bible Prophecy

The surprise Turkey Coup July 2016The future of Turkey after the failed coup

The dramatic military coup in Turkey that took place two weeks ago in July 2016, suddenly broke out and yet the crisis dissipated the very next day. In the moment of crisis it seemed as if the whole area could suddenly change. Yet now things move on and the crisis is quickly forgotten about.

But the fact is, that Turkey and Europe did change, never to be the same again on that day, fulfilling the expectation of Bible prophecy.

Ottoman Empire Map 1566The belief that the Ottoman Turkish Empire would decline and “dry up”, was long held by students of Bible Prophecy as a fulfillment of Revelation 16:12, where the text reads: "And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” The drying up of this power was seen as a prerequisite for the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, also as a necessary fulfillment of the many prophecies in the Bible.

Istanbul and the Bosphorus StraitBoth these events have taken place, verifying the truth of scripture and also the basis and overall interpretation of these prophecies. Subsequent to the first world war, the Turkish Empire disappeared and the momentum built for the return of the Jews, which led to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The modern country of Turkey has continued as a significant power in the Middle East. Is a further drying up of the Turkish power necessary as a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?

Modern Turkey, the remaining puddle of the once great Ottoman Empire, lies in the heartland of its predecessor the Byzantine Greek Empire, the eastern leg of the Roman Empire. Not only does Turkey lie in the cultural and religious heartland of the Greek Byzantine Empire, the capital, Istanbul, is situated on the Bosphorus, a strategic international waterway and Russia’s access to the Mediterranean sea. The Bosphorus also creates the geographic boundary between Europe and Asia. Istanbul was once Constantinople, the capital and religious centre for the Byzantine Empire. Russia is the undisputed heir to the Greek Byzantine Empire, Moscow replaced Constantinople as its capital; yet the strategic, religious and cultural significance to Russia is enormous.

The significance of Istanbul or Constantinople to Russia

1.     Strategically Istanbul is the gateway, both maritime otherwise to the Middle East, the Mediterranean and North Africa for Russia. The lengths which Russia went to, to retain its military presence in Crimea on the Black Sea are useless without passage through the Bosphorus. Russia’s operations in Syria and its port there, would be far more difficult if not impossible to maintain without passage through those straights. Turkey is a member of NATO. If the straights were closed to Russian vessels, war would be inevitable.

2.     Religiously, Constantinople is the heartland of Russia’s state church, the Greek Orthodox Catholic religion. The church “Hagia Sophia” in Istanbul was for over 900 years the seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople and the focal point of the Eastern Orthodox Church. When the Ottomans came, the church was converted to a mosque and then after the demise of the Ottoman Empire it was converted to a museum in the 1930’s. There is a movement in Turkey to convert the building back to a mosque again, which would no doubt cause confrontation with Russia.

3.     Russia has historical and cultural roots in the Byzantine Empire, although the area is now very Islamic. However, to an Empire builder such as Putin, Constantinople would be almost irresistible.

With this in mind, the significance of Istanbul to Russia is very plain and apparent. Now, what about from a prophetical standpoint? What is the significance of Constantinople from a prophetical point of view?


In Daniel chapter 2, the prophecy of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the metallic image, we learn about what will be in the latter days. The prophet Daniel says to the king, in Daniel 2:28, "But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days.” Daniel 2, then, is a prophecy of what will be in the latter days. Daniel explains to the king, that each of the metals of the image represents a subsequent kingdom that will reign over the earth. There are four phases, with a fifth of clay and iron in the feet and toes which form a rather shaky basis for the image. In the days of the final kingdom of iron and clay, the image will be stand in its entirety. In other words the last kingdom will contain elements of all the empires that have gone before. The prophecy is very emphatic on this point; Daniel says, "Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together…” In order for them to be broken together, they have to stand together. Each of these empires; Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome, each had rule over the holy land, the land of Israel, the land of Daniel the prophet’s nation. The Roman legs, are an apt representation of the Roman empire, which became divided into a eastern (Byzantine) leg and a western (Latin) leg. Today we live in the days of the feet, the phase of iron and clay, partly strong and partly broken. There would be certain elements with a Roman Imperial character and certain elements with a clay character. This we understand to be the power of the people or democracy. As Adam was created from the dust of the ground so clay is an apt description of the power of man.
Nebuchadnezzar's Image Dream of future World Events
While we live in this phase of the iron and clay, it can’t be forgotten as has been established, that the image is broken in pieces together and so stands together. There is to be a latter day empire, descended from the Roman Empire that will be destroyed by the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ — the little stone that smites the image upon its feet. When Nebuchadnezzar saw this image standing, in its entirety, right before its destruction, he is awestruck as the form thereof was terrible. This is the character of the latter day empire that will be formed on the earth, out of the remains of the Eastern and Western Roman empires. Therefore Daniel 2 leads us to the conclusion of the importance of the Eastern Roman Empire in the latter days, that it must stand up with the rest of the image with its religion, culture and military power.

The prophecy of Daniel 7 parallels Daniel chapter 2, portraying the four empires not as metallic parts of an image, but four terrible beasts that arise one after another. Daniel 8 again parallels these other prophecies, giving us more information from a different angle — a Greek point of view. Daniel 2, has a Medio-Persian, chest and arms of silver; Daniel 7 represents this power by a Bear raised up on one side, and; Daniel 8 depicts it as a Ram. Daniel 2 then has a Grecian belly and thighs of brass, which Daniel 7 represents with a four headed leopard, and Daniel 8 depicts with a male goat who is victorious over the Ram. However, while Daniel 2 and 7 have a representation of the Roman empire, Daniel 8 only has the two animals. Yet, as we read through Daniel 8 we can clearly see the Roman power, however, he arises out of one of the horns of the goat. This demonstrates how the Greek culture and character would continue on the in the Roman Empire, in particular in the Greek East. Daniel 8 also brings us to the time of the end which that kingdom would be broken. The “king of fierce countenance” will stand up against the “prince of princes”, but would be “broken without hand” — just like Daniel 2! This king of fierce countenance would stand up in the latter days of the divisions of the Alexanders Greek Empire, he would cause the sacrifices in the temple to cease and cast down the sanctuary — the temple in Jerusalem. This would be at a time when the transgressors in the Jewish kingdom had “come to the full”. All of this clearly shows that this “king” is a Roman king, ruling over the Greek Empire. This became the Byzantine Empire.

We are given more details about what this king will do in the latter days in Daniel 11. He will change his religion (Daniel 11:37), not worshipping the God of his fathers. This great change in the Roman Empire was accomplished by Constantine, who changed the empire from Paganism to Christianity and gave his name to Constantinople. At the time of the end he will come against the holy land like a whirlwind and overflow many countries. He will come with many ships (Daniel 11:40,41). The ships of this latter-day Greek and Roman Empire will come from the Black Sea and through the Bosphorus down to the Middle East. Yet he will be destroyed, Daniel says and no one will come to his aid.

From these prophecies then, we would expect Russia to strengthen its role as the eastern Greek leg of the Empire that will stand in the latter days as depicted in Daniel 2.  From Daniel 8 we learn that this Greek element of the empire will exist until it is destroyed without hand, when the Lord Jesus establishes his kingdom in the earth. In Daniel 11, we see how this Roman/Greek empire will invade the Middle East, overflowing and passing over many countries. All this would lead us to believe that Russia will take Constantinople, establishing its self as the rightful descendent of the Byzantine/Greek empire, controlling the passage of its ships through the Bosphorus and exercising religious authority over earth from the Hagia Sophia, in conjunction with the Roman Catholic Church seated in Rome. 

The military coup in Turkey is a clear symptom of greater problems lying under the surface. On July 28, the New York Times had an article entitled, "With Army in Disarray, a Pillar of Modern Turkey Lies Broken”. President Erdogan of Turkey as led a massive purge of the country, "jailing and suspending tens of thousands of state employees”. The New York Times article says, “...the military that has long served as a unifying force for the country is deeply divided, diminished and discredited. Nearly half of the top generals and admirals have been jailed or dismissed and thousands of foot soldiers charged.” The article goes on to say:

“With its main pillar, the military, broken, the Turkish state will no longer be able to check a divided society or effectively counter security threats,” said Halil Karaveli, a senior fellow at the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute and Silk Road Studies Program.

“That is a blow, not only to the country, but also to NATO, of which Turkey is a member. The Turkish military is a crucial ally in fighting terrorism, reining in the Islamic State, and in controlling the migrant tide that has overwhelmed Europe. Chaos within the military symbolizes not only its waning power in the country — and the rise of the police, which Mr. Erdogan built up as a bulwark to the military — but also its diminished reliability as a partner to the West.”

All this suits Russia. Weakening NATO and weakening military power in Turkey. The article also points out this will give impetus to the Kurds, to have their own state and independence. These events are very significant. We are seeing the continued rise of Russian power and the demise of Turkey and NATO. We will watch for these trends to continue, as we look forward to the return of Christ to the earth, when the little stone power will strike the image upon the feet and bring into being the righteous age of the kingdom of God in the earth.
