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.

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.

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)

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 Day Of Judgement

THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT 
 

Fear of the unknown

Everyone has some experience of a day of judgement - a reckoning or a verdict - We all know the suspense of waiting for the unknown, the feeling of apprehension, the uncertainty, and the fear.

The Day of God's Judgement

When was the last time that you had to wait for an outcome that you could not predict?
 
Perhaps you have sat an examination and waited for the results to be published, in the knowledge that those results would soon be pinned up on a public notice-board and everyone would know your success or failure. It was failure that you feared and excuses tumbled over excuses in your head as you waited the outcome.
 
Or perhaps you have taken a driving test, when, after months of practice, it took all your courage as you sat in the car, petrified, waiting for the verdict of the examiner.
 

Or perhaps you once applied for a job, were short-listed, and when the interview was over were fretting as you awaited the outcome.

Getting the job was important to you. Worse is the case of the man who had a feeling of discomfort for some time, and, finally, went to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor was uncertain and unwilling to make a diagnosis without a hospital examination, including X-rays and the opinion of the specialist. Now he has to wait the outcome and is fearful of the unknown.

The same kind of fear and apprehension comes to us as we wait the outcome of a moral uncertainty. We know, or think that we have done something wrong and we have "a fearful expectation of judgement".

Think of a boy fearfully waiting for his father to come home from work. It had not been a good day at school and the boy was in a bad mood when he came home. He soon got into an argument with his sister and hit her so hard that her nose began to bleed and she cried for a long time. His mother sent him to his room with the angry words; "You wait there until your father gets". So the boy can only wait in fear.

The inevitability of judgement has brought uncertainty and fear to all of us at some time in our life. With hindsight we can see that judgement seems to have an inexorable quality like a time-bomb ticking away to a pre-determined end - bringing awful consequences on individuals and communities alike.

A day of judgement?

Herculaneum was a popular resort town on the Italian coast. In the First Century AD wealthy Romans went there to indulge in a hedonistic life-style. They wanted continuous and licentious pleasure. Suddenly, on August 24 in AD79 nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted and rained hot lava, ashes and mud on the town and buried it to a depth of 15 m - about 2,000 people perished that day.

Judgement or natural disaster?

Make-up your own mind about that, but the wall paintings and floor mosaics that were preserved in the cataclysm and remain there to this day, give testimony to a life style that would not have pleased Almighty God. We could be excused for thinking that the cataclysm was at God's command.

Judgement on Sodom

Sodom was a prosperous and populated city about 1900 years before Jesus Christ. It was situated close to the Dead Sea on the Israeli-Jordanian border but its precise location is one of those unsolved mysteries that experts have tried to solve. The inhabitants perished in a disaster that may have been of volcanic origin. The city was totally destroyed. We know something about the people who lived there because the story of its destruction is recorded in the Bible.

Firstly as a warning that God's judgements are final and have terrible consequences on those who mock Him or live depraved lives and, secondly, as a record of God's loving care for those who love Him and live a righteously. Lot was Abraham's nephew and travelling companion, until their herds increased to such an extent that there was insufficient grazing for both herds and there was a danger of friction between them. They parted, and Lot chose to move to the fertile area near to Sodom.

"Lot looked up and saw that the whole plain of the Jordan was well watered, like the garden of the LORD" (Genesis 13:10).

Time went by and Lot became an important person in the town - a town-councillor, but he was distressed with the sexually deviant life-style of the people whom he was now living and tried to get them to change their ways.

"Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men. For that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard" (2 Peter 2:7-8).

The destruction of Sodom was total and all the inhabitants perished and the ruins of the town lie hidden - possibly under the waters of the Dead Sea. We can sense the urgency of the occasion from the biblical record.

"With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished." (Genesis 19:15).

Jesus said:

"The day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulphur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all" (Luke 17:29).

Is this judgement or a natural disaster?

The Bible record is quite specific; "Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD", (Genesis 13:13)

Therefore God decided to bring judgement on them. Their day of judgement was soon to come; "the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me" (Gen. 18:20-21).

So the town of Sodom has passed into the oblivion of history, but the name has come down to us as a description of sexual perversion at its worst.

The event has been recorded so that all generations may know and fear the awesome judgements of the Lord - the day of judgement.

The New Testament record is clear: "He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly" (2 Peter 2:6)

"Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire." (Jude 1:7)

HIV Infection and Aids

In a recent BBC film report for 'Panorama', Fergal Keanes investigated the fastest growing AIDS epidemic in the world. Four million people are HIV positive in South Africa and 1,700 are becoming infected each day.

The main cause is in the sexually promiscuous life-style of many of the people. Sex is no longer regarded as part of a life-long commitment between husband and wife, but as a leisure activity to be indulged in at whim. "Sex is just a game", said one 17 year-old girl when interviewed. However, the awful truth, that starkly faces those people who have contracted the disease, is that there is no escape. They have no future other than the grave. Of course, as with many man-made evils, the victims of AIDS are often totally innocent - wives infected by their unfaithful husbands, babies infected by their mothers, hospital patients infected by tainted blood transfusions. So is AIDS a judgement or a natural disaster? Make-up your own mind about that, but the likeness to God's judgement on Sodom is uncomfortably close.

Lot - a survivor of judgement

This is the hopeful part of the story of Sodom for this man and his family were saved from the cataclysm - saved because he was righteous and was distressed by the sexual perversions of the people among whom he lived. On that day of judgement and amid that awful destruction, God was merciful and saved him alive because of his faith. He was brought out before destruction rained down out of the sky, and so the story of Sodom can be one of hope - for those willing to receive God's mercy.

Judgement on the Northern Kingdom

The descendants of Abraham who lived about 1900 BC were the people of Israel, the Hebrews and they were a select nation for they had been chosen by God to be His people. They had certain privileges but they also had responsibilities to keep. They had to worship the Lord their God and keep His laws. They failed to maintain their status and were punished by God. In the year 850 BC the nation split into two parts, and in the course of time the northern part was conquered by the Assyrians and deported.

Judgement on the Southern Kingdom

The southern part failed to learn the lesson of history and continued to forsake God. They worshipped idols failed to live faithful lives and social oppression was endemic in their community.

The Bible record says it all: "The LORD, the God of their fathers, sent word to them through his messengers again and again, because he had pity on his people and on his dwelling-place. But they mocked God's messengers, despised his words and scoffed at his prophets until the wrath of the LORD was aroused against his people and there was no remedy." (Chronicles 36:15-16).

Their final day of judgement was in 15th March BC 597 when the Babylonian army broke through the walls of Jerusalem, captured the city and destroyed the temple. Nebuchadnezzar, the conquering king of Babylon deported most of the people to Babylon.

Judgement on Jerusalem - AD70

Much later on, history was to be repeated for the Jewish people who had returned from Babylon again turned away from the true worship of God and again He appealed to them and this time He added to the appeal by sending His Son, Jesus Christ. What happened is well described in the parable.

"A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. but they seized him, beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Then he sent another servant to them; they struck this man on the head and treated him shamefully. He sent still another, and that one they killed. He sent many others; some of them they beat, others they killed. He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, `They will respect my son.' But the tenants said to one another, `This is the heir. Come, let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' So they took him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard." (Mark 12:1-8)

Judgement came to the Jewish people in AD 70. Their nemesis came in the form of the Roman armies commanded by Titus, and it was both terrible in its form and strikingly similar to that judgement day in BC 597. The suffering of the people was intense and those who survived were taken captive to Rome. Their humiliation has been on display ever since - in pictures carved on the Arch of Titus erected in Rome in AD81. From AD70 till 1948 the Jews lived in exile, scattered throughout the world.

A remnant of faith

In both of these invasions there are two important features. The first is that both were judgements from God and were the consequence of faithless behaviour by people who should have known better - they were responsible and they were warned. The second is that in both cases there were survivors - a few were saved from destruction by God simply because they were faithful to Him. Those whose trust is in God will always be safe in time of trouble.

The Day of Judgement The discussion thus far has had to do with whole communities but what has been true for these societies is also true for each individual - you and me.

Long ago, in the year AD 58, the Apostle Paul was talking to Felix, the Roman military governor of Judah about faith in Christ Jesus, righteousness, self-control and the judgement to come, Felix was afraid and said; "That's enough for now! You may leave." (Acts 24:25).

Felix didn't want to hear any more about 'The Day of Judgement' because he was afraid of the consequences. Some years earlier the same Apostle Paul spoke to the leading academics in Athens and his message ended in a similar way, "For he [God] has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed [Jesus Christ]. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead." (Acts 17:30). Not long before the Apostle Paul was executed on the orders of the Roman Emperor, he wrote a letter of encouragement to Timothy and in it are the words, "In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge." (1Tim 4:1)

So, the 'Day of Judgement' is an event still to come, and it will involve you and me personally. Whether we like it or not that day will come and we will be there to answer to the Lord Jesus Christ for our actions. There will be no hiding place. This day of judgement has its setting in the kingdom that will be set-up by Jesus Christ when he returns as King of the earth.

Jesus said:

"I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgement for every careless word they have spoken." (Mt 12:36)

"I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself, and he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

"Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice, and come out - those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned." (John 5:25-29)

What can we do?

Given that 'The Day of Judgement' is certain, given that it will be sooner than men think, and given also that we will have to face the Lord Jesus and give an account of our lives, what can we do?

This same question has been asked before. On one occasion the Apostle Paul was in gaol at Philippi when God sent a violent earthquake that unlocked their chains and opened all of the doors but, curiously, none of the prisoners escaped - they all remained there.

The jailer was frightened out of his wits; "The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"

They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved - you and your household."

Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptised." (Acts16:29-33).

This story has a happy ending, but there are several points that we must not fail to notice:

Firstly we can see that to "believe in the Lord Jesus" is not just an academic matter, it requires action and commitment - baptism.

Secondly, it can be seen that the act of baptism is not enough in itself.

Paul and Silas first "spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house" and only when they had understood and agreed, did they baptise them.

The same is true today

We must know Jesus Christ and his mission, be utterly convinced that he alone can save us from our sins, and be baptised to demonstrate our obedience to his will. ...but there is more.

Our way of life from that moment onwards must show our commitment to him.

Referring to the coming judgement the Apostle Peter wrote that;

"The day of the Lord will come like a thief. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God." (2 Peter 3:10-12).

God's Declared Purpose with YOU and the EARTH

 

 

ARE YOU SAVED?  IF SO HOW ARE YOU SAVED?

 
 

 

Is YOUR knowledge of the BIBLE 

and YOUR belief and worship of GOD 

able to SAVE YOU?

 

Not sure? Well consider this passage from JOHN CHAPTER 17

"1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."

The Greek word for "know" is 'genosko' and it means to have a thorough intellectual understanding of what something is all about.

Do you have this understanding of God and His Son

Jesus Christ?

The need for this full understanding of the TRUTH is further underlined by Christ's words in John 17:17Only a TRUE understanding of the Word of God can Save YOU

We are sanctified in our understanding of God's word of Truth ie. set apart as special unto God and Christ, without this we cannot be saved.  Just as Israel were not saved when they strayed from their TRUE knowledge of God.

God's special people the nation of Israel were destroyed for lack of knowledge as we read in Hosea 4:1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

In Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee.

In Hosea 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
 

The Apostle Paul has warned us that some would not be in the Faith (ie. the true knowledge of God and Christ)...

1 Timothly 4:1 Now 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.
And again by the Apostle Peter...

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And in 2 Thessalonians where the Apostle Paul tells us that some would fall away from "the Truth" he says that this would be becaused they had lost their love of the Truth and had chosen rather to believe a lie.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

"10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

And so the Apostle Paul counselled us all to Work out OUR OWN SALVATION...

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.


You owe it to yourself and your family to seek the Truth

about God, His Son Jesus and His purpose with you

and this earth.
