President Donald Trump is chasing the 'toughest deal of all' - Middle East peace - and he says he's pouring his heart and soul into obtaining it.

'It's a complex subject, always been considered the toughest deal of all, peace between Israel and the Palestinians, the toughest of all, but I think we have a very, very good chance, and I certainly will devote everything within, within my heart and within my soul to get that deal made,' he told Palestine's Mahmoud Abbas.

Trump told Abbas as they sat down on Wednesday for another round of discussions that he believes peace can be achieved throughout region.

'I think we have a pretty good shot, maybe the best shot ever,' Trump assessed.

Trump and ME peace

President Donald Trump says he's giving Middle East peace talks his all. 'Always been considered the toughest deal of all...but I think we have a very, very good chance,' he told Palestine's Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday

The U.S. president said Monday that he believes his administration will be the one to finally facilitate peace between Israel, Palestine and their neighbors. 

At the beginning of a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday afternoon on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Trump said he's 'giving it an absolute go.'

'I think there's a good chance that it could happen,' Trump posited.

Netanyahu affirmed that they would discuss 'the way we can seize the opportunity for peace' not just between Israel and Palestine but Israel and Arab nations in the region.

After the meeting, Brian Hook, a State Department official, told reporters at the United Nations that Trump 'is deeply committed to achieving an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.'

'He and his team have continued deliberations with leaders on both sides on potential steps to reach a comprehensive peace agreement. His team recently had multiple meetings with leaders in the region, and obviously a good deal of work remains to be done, but discussions remain serious and constructive,' Hook stated.

Abbas said Wednesday that Trump's repeated meetings with him are proof that he's committed to facilitating a deal.

'It attests to the seriousness of Your Excellency, Mr. President, to achieve the deal of the century in the Middle East during this year or in the coming months, God willing,' Abbas said through an interpreter.

'And we are very certain that you, Mr. President, are determined to reach real peace in the Middle East. And this gives us the assurance and the confidence that we are on the verge of real peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis,' Abbas added.

Well we will have to wait and see if President Donald Trump can advance the cause for Peace in the Middle East.  As True Bible Students we fully expect to see a measure of peace develop in the Middle East before Christ Returns. At the time of the end when the Battle of Armageddon takes place Israel is described as a land at rest, dwelling in peace.  We read this in Ezekiel 38:11-12

“11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.”

So from this passage we see that Israel will be a land at rest without "walls, having neither bars nor gates". Clearly something has yet to change to bring this about as Israel has been building "walls" with "bars and gates" to keep the Palestinians out.  So we need to watch and see what might develop from President Donald Trumps moves to establish peace, he seems very confident that he can do it and given his business deal making background vs his non political background he might be just the one to bring about something new.

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.

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 GREAT APOSTASY

Print

True Bible Teaching - What the Bible really says about God and His Purpose

THE GREAT APOSTASY

The Great Apostasy and The Number of The Beast 666

The Great Apostasy and the Number of the Beast 666

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations…"Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."(Revelation 13:4-18)

Apostasy

In Revelation 13 we read about the BEAST with the number of 666. This is only one of a number of references in the Bible to a great APOSTASY (abandoning of the faith) that would develop. This "falling away" from the true faith actually started in the first century and it has continued into our own day. Many prophecies are written to warn us that this corruption of Bible truth would be very prominent in the last days, just before its final destruction at the return of Christ.

Some references to Consider

"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)

"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." (Matthew 24:11-12)

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." (2 Thess. 2:3-4)

"Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8)

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come....Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."( 2 Timothy 3: 1-5)

What does it Mean to Us?

These prophecies of APOSTASY are of obvious concern to all of us. We owe it to ourselves to identify the errors and source of false religion so that we can escape from the judgments that are coming. (See 2 Thess 2:8-12)

"They shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

Paul's warning to Timothy

The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy to warn him of the dangers of the coming APOSTASY. "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 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: 1- 4)

Dishonest Gain

Why would people prefer fables to Bible truth? Simply because the promises associated with false religion are more appealing to the flesh. By telling their followers what they want to hear, the false prophets maintain their livelihood. Religion can be a lucrative profitable business. Beware the message of those who are more concerned with donations than truth.

The Fables

How do we identify the fables? First of all, we must follow the example of the disciples at Berea, who searched the scriptures daily to see if what the preachers were telling them was true. (See Acts 17:10-11)

The other thing that we need to be watching out for is a message that is just "too good to be true." Consider the church funeral for a deceased of questionable character who was now being commended to paradise with words of praise.

Watch out for those promises that no matter how much of a sinner we are, God loves us just the way we are, and He will reward us anyway. Sermons of this sort are far removed from the truth as revealed in the Bible.

What really happens when we die?

The bottom line is that most of these fables are nothing more than a repetition of the serpents lie that "Ye shall not surely die." (See Genesis 2:17, 3:4)

The Bible teaches that God's people fall asleep in Christ when they die. They return to the dust of the ground to wait for the resurrection.

The false teachers, on the other hand, tell us that we never die. We are taken to heaven or sent into a mythical burning hell. (Did you ever attend a funeral where the preacher commended the deceased to this place?)

Sure, it is comforting to hear that a loved one is not really dead and gone. We all would love to think that the reality of death is only a transition to something more wonderful. But, that is not the message of Bible truth.

Itching Ears

Where do we stand? Is it with itching ears, listening to the smooth stories about the after life, somewhere beyond the sunset? Or, are we ready to open our Bible again, and read without money and without price, the truth about God's wonderful plan of salvation for man upon this earth.

"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." (Not heaven)

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed..."(2 Thess. 2: 3-4)

Falling Away

 

The Great Apostasy and the Man of SinThe Apostle Paul provided a very clear warning. Before the return of Christ, there would be a "falling away" (from the faith), and the man of sin would be revealed. His remarks are written in the first 12 verses of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 and are well worth our consideration. We have copied verse 3 and 4 below:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."

The Man of Sin

Who is this man of sin? Bible students have debated over this issue for centuries, often avoiding the obvious. The apostate church will not accept the indictment of scripture against her. This system of false religion has worked hard to re-direct the focus of the incriminating evidence.

Paul indicated that this "mystery of iniquity "was already starting to work in his day. History reveals that the truth of the gospel was perverted and gradually corrupted during a period of 280 years climaxing in 312 AD when Christianity was adopted as the state religion by pagan Rome.

Mixtures of Truth

The original teachings of Christ and the apostles were watered down and mixed with the philosophies of the day. Those who ascended to the temple of God as the spiritual leaders of the church were corrupt. They maintained control at the expense of the lives of the true followers of Christ.

The Holy Roman Empire exalted their religious leader into a god and he ruled over the kings of Europe. The system of religion, The Holy Roman Empire or The Roman Catholic Church that was established during the middle ages was centered in Rome. Its characteristics are described as "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (See Revelation 17 and 18 for a full description of this great corrupt system, WHOSE LEADER IS THE MAN OF SIN.)

Man of Sin Today

Today, all nations have been corrupted by the religion of this corrupt system. The man of sin known as the Pope still leads the "mother church" and many of the other churches are "daughters" who have embraced the false teachings.

The man of sin, and all who support him in worship, will be revealed and destroyed when Christ returns. Let us be sure that we have distanced ourselves from the apostasy and embraced the true religion of the Bible, so that we may be found acceptable in that day.

True believers have been warned by Christ to “come out from among them”:

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.”(Revelation 18:3-6)

"Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8)

The Parable of the Widow

"And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he The Parable of the Widowwould not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:1-8)

The Widow's Persistence

 

The widow in this parable continually sought vengeance through the unjust judge. It was her persistence that convinced the judge to help her. She was actually annoying him with her constant pleas.

Jesus related this story for a reason. He wanted his followers to learn a lesson from the widow. If this unjust, worldly man would respond to the plea of the widow, then surely a merciful God would answer the earnest prayers of His people.

Our Adversary

We are therefore encouraged to "cry day and night unto him" to be avenged of our adversary, which is the sin that dwells within us. We face a daily struggle against the desires of the flesh, and we pray for the return of our Master, who will change the bodies of the faithful after their judgment. "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 7:24-25)

Shall he find Faith?

When we consider the lesson in this parable, it is apparent that Jesus questioned if any of his servants would have persistence like the widow. Would they cry day and night? Would they have that kind of faith when he comes?

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”(Revelation 22:20)

Does it Matter what we Believe

 

 

THE OFFER OF LIFE OR DEATH

 
 

The 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.

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