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.

True Bible Teaching

An independent study of the Bible will reveal that the following are key True Bible Teachings:

  1. The Bible is God's word and the only message from him. It is without error, except for copying and translation errors.
  2. There is only one God - the Father. The Holy Spirit is God's power.
  3. Jesus is the Son of God, and a human being, through his mother Mary.
  4. Man is mortal, having no existence when dead.
  5. By living a sinless life, ending with his sacrificial death by crucifixion, Jesus has opened the way of salvation from death.
  6. Belief and baptism are essential steps to salvation.
  7. God raised Jesus from death. Jesus is currently in Heaven, on God's right hand. He will one day return.
  8. When Jesus returns, he will raise his "sleeping" followers from death and grant immortality to the faithful who have tried to live by God's precepts.
  9. His followers will help him to rule, bringing justice, righteousness and peace to the whole world - the Kingdom of God.

WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

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.

KING OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH IN PROPHECY

How World News relates to God's PLAN and Purpose with the World

KING OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH IN PROPHECY

KING OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH IN BIBLE PROPHECY

Today in June 2017 we are witnessing events that are leading to a new International Geopolitical Alignment of Nations into a Northern and Southern Alliance.

King of the North and South, latter day Geopolitical Alignment of Nations

For True Bible Students what we are seeing is long expected Bible prophecy unfolding before our very eyes, events that gave long been expected.

After WWII the European nations were aligned in an East-West International Geopolitical alignment or configuration with the Berlin wall down the middle.  West Germany, France, Britain, Canada and the United States held the power in the west with the eastern European countries and Russia obviously holding power in the East.

As far as the Middle East was concerned the Arab nations all considered Israel as a hostile enemy.  And Saudi Arabia may have been hostile to Russia and friendly with America but it resisted any idea of peace with Israel.  Although there were changes here and there this persistent alliance made many to reconsider many of the prophecies and wonder if many had got it wrong.  Even still today NATO is a fully functioning historical East-West alliance, but there are cracks showing and nations are now considering their long held positions with Europe now looking at establishing their own EU Army.

A True Bible Student by the name of Grahame Pearce wrote these words in 1977 under the heading “Two Mountains of Brass”:

“According to the last part of Daniel, chapter 11, there will exist when Christ returns two hostile powers north and south of the land, repeating the kind of situation outlined in such detail in the early part of the chapter. The idea of a north and a south power is not limited to Daniel, ch. 11; it is even more clearly expressed in Zechariah, chapter 6. In this chapter the four chariots go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth to walk to and fro through the earth; the man whose name is the BRANCH becomes king and priest; the temple is built. Clearly, it is the time of setting up the kingdom. And the phrase of importance is that the four chariots go forth from between two mountains of brass. This conveys the idea of two 'mountain' powers north and south of Jerusalem. In Ezekiel, chapter 38, too, there is a power that challenges the northern invader: "Art thou come to take a spoil?" So we should be looking today for those movements that will provide "two mountain" powers antagonistic to each other established north and south of the Land of Israel.”

Graham Pearce was nothing short of excited about the developments with the Southern power but as far as peace with Israel, it still seemed along way off, in fact, Graham believed that it was possible that the temporary peace of Ezekiel 38 may develop after the return of Jesus Christ.  Listen to the following quote from the same book:

“The excitement of seeing many forward moves relative to the 'King of the South' is somewhat dampened when we turn to Israel. There is little insight that points to that strange peace in the land before the great confederacy comes from the north to take a spoil. Israel is to "dwell safely all of them;" they are described as "them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates;" "in that day when My people dwell safely, shalt thou not know it?"

As proposed in the booklet Russia, The Vatican and the Invasion of Israel this remarkable state of things probably follows on after the resurrection and the hidden unrecognized power of Christ as a major influence in this region. Nevertheless, we do well to look for signs that point in the direction of peace in this area; and they are not altogether absent.”

So 30 years ago in 1977 movements could be seen that indicated this North-South divide in the nations was starting to show however there was only slight movement as far as Israel’s peace was concerned.  The picture today is far more developed and there are many signs that this reasoning from scripture was certainly sound.  Interestingly all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle are coming into place at the same time, and even the events in the Middle East of recent weeks have been significant.

We will first note the crisis in Qatar.  Qatar has for some time faced criticism from its Arab neighbors after it supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt in 2014 and has been increasingly cozying up to Iran.  Whether it is working in coordination with America or not, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has come out and blasted Qatar for funding terrorism and interestingly including Hamas.  Not only has the GCC blasted Qatar verbally but they have also shut down air, land and sea traffic between Qatar and Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.  This has left Qatar scrambling for its fresh food and other supplies it gets from Saudi Arabia and the other neighboring nation.  In fact, it has produced what it is being called the largest bovine airlift in history as Qatar airlifted thousands of cows in order to get fresh milk!  However more interesting prophetically than a bovine airlift is, is the airlift of Iranian and Turkish forces into Qatar to ensure there is no late night coup putting Saudi Arabia and southern Arab powers into very public conflict with Iran and Turkey.

Out of the Qatar crisis interestingly Israel seems to greatly benefit.  To start with the GCC is calling for Qatar to stop funding Hamas and other terror organizations, but it does not stop there. In Saudi Arabia and Egypt especially are no fans of the Al Jazeera news network which is run out of Qatar.  It also so happens that Al Jazeera is hugely biased against Israel.  In fact, this crisis has now brought about the language in the news of the “Saudi-Israeli entente.”  The following quote is from the Huffington Post:

“By backing Saudi Arabia’s vision of the Middle East and boosting the Saudi-Israeli entente against Iran, President Trump has sparked a geopolitical earthquake in the region, especially within the Saudi-led Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt cut ties, attempting to isolate tiny but influential Qatar, accusing it of sponsoring terrorism. At the same time, the de facto Saudi-Israeli axis labels Iran an immediate existential threat, drawing their American ally back into the Middle East…”

It does seem to be awkward for America as it has a huge military base in Qatar, but either way for Israel it will be very welcome news.  And for Bible prophecy we have been waiting a long time for these alliances to start to develop, in fact, Graham Pearce wondered if we would even see this prior to Christ’s return.  Well, we are seeing it and a common enemy such as Iran seems to be doing the trick.  Events may cool down again but I think it is clear the way they are going.

Add to the events of surrounding Qatar is the news regarding the Prime Ministers of India’s scheduled visit to Israel.  The Jerusalem Post is reported the following:

“It is a ritual followed by nearly all presidents, prime ministers and foreign ministers who visit Israel: come to the country for 24, 48, or 72 hours, spend most of their time in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, but make sure to stop by Ramallah or Bethlehem for a few hours for a couple of meetings with Palestinian Authority officials. In this way the visit can be billed at home and abroad not as a visit to Israel, but rather to Israel-Palestine.”

However, the article continues that “Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi – who will be the first serving Indian prime minister to visit Israel when he comes here in the first week of July to mark 25 years of the establishment of diplomatic ties – is set to break the mold.

Unless there are last minute changes, Modi is coming to Israel, period. And with this act, he will send a strong message to his own people, to Arabs, and to Israelis, that he is – as the Indians themselves like to describe it – removing the hyphen from the country’s ties with Israel.

Modi will underscore with this move that India’s ties with Israel stand on their own, and are independent of Israel’s relations with the Palestinian Authority or the pace of the diplomatic process.

And for Israel this is huge, something it wishes the European Union would emulate. In stark contrast with India, the EU as a body – and a number of its individual states as component parts – have linked their pace of development of ties with Israel to the settlement issue or the diplomatic process. Modi’s visit is an indication that the Indians are having none of that.”

This is interesting prophetically as India, once a British colony is also considered the “eastern Tarshish” mentioned in 1 Kings 10:21-22 that reads “Once in three years came the navy of Tarshish, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes and peacocks.”

Well not only are events with the southern powers taking shape, so too in the north.  Since Trump took office the relationship between America and the Europeans has continued to cool off.  We had the French election of Macron who has been openly critical of Donald Trump as well as the American withdrawal from the Paris climate agreements.  Add to all of that just this week in America the Senate voted to bring more sanctions down on Russia.  What is remarkable is the way in which Germany reacted.  The following is from the BBC:

“Germany and Austria have sharply criticized the US Senate for tightening sanctions on Russia, accusing the US of threatening Europe's energy supplies… In a joint statement, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern said Europe's energy supplies were "a matter for Europe, not for the United States.”

And as for Britain, although it is in complete turmoil currently, BREXIT will one way or another go ahead leaving Europe without the British influence or protection.  A Europe distanced from America and Britain will no doubt look for protection elsewhere and it is the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 that tells us where the protection will come from, Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meschech and Tubal, or in today nations, Russia.

With the nations aligning along the prophetical lines it means only ONE thing, we are near to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the one who has been directing all these events from the right hand of Almighty God.

So for True Bible Students we live in exciting times that are witnessing to the hand of God amongst the Nations bringing about His Plan and Purose.
