The 'Joshua & the Battle of Jericho' Video

What still amazes me (even to this day!) is how I learned every detail of the Bible’s stories as a child, knowing them throughout my life, and yet never once do I remember questioning “Why?” about them.  They are so amazing, so incredible, so extraordinary, and yet I never asked, “I wonder why God wanted it done like that?”  Or, “Why did God do that?”  Or, “Why did God ask them to do that?”  I’ve always thought myself a fairly curious and inquisitive person, so it just AMAZES me that I failed to think anything more of God’s Bible stories.  I must confess I feel pretty na├»ve, dumb, and humbled whenever I think about it, and I cringe when someone tries to make ME out as the person who has somehow “figured out” the Biblical knowledge I’ve written about in my (really God’s!) book.  But it’s all part of this cross I now bear in delivering this exciting, life-changing message to the people of the world.

So how about the Old Testament story of Joshua & the Israelites conquering Jericho?  What an UNBELIEVABLE story, right?  I was hanging onto God’s every word as a child … "march around the city once for each of 6 days, don’t breathe a word, march around the city 7 times on the 7th day, make a long trumpet blast after the last time around, everyone shout, the walls will fall, and go up and take the city!  Whaaaaaat!!!  Are you joking?  Why didn’t I question any of this?  What was God doing?  What was He thinking!!!  Look, there are only three beliefs a person can have when considering the Old Testament Bible stories: (1) They are fairy tales, (2) They are real, with God doing very specific things for no reason at all, like some insane maniac, or (3) They are real, and every detail of what God did in them has tremendous meaning.  Which do you think is the case?

Oh, my friend … God is INCREDIBLE!!!  He is AMAZING!!!  He is THE ORIGINAL PROPHET!!!  His Bible’s stories are all PROPHECY!!!  The angel told John the Revelator: “the testimony of Jesus is the SPIRIT of PROPHECY” (The Revelation 19:10).  Why did God want to prophesy the future to mankind?  For PROOF to you and me that He exists! Listen, God set this world up in such a way that mankind understands NO mere MAN can know what is going to happen tomorrow.  Then God comes along in His Word and does just that!!!  That’s your proof, folks!  The existence of God is undeniable to anyone who will honestly study the Scriptures.  And why does God want you to be FULLY PERSUADED He exists?  Because then you have reason to desire to know, love, and please Him.  And this is all VERY GOOD towards the state of your eternal destiny!  Yes, God’s prophetic Word was written to increase mankind’s faith in God.

On October 26, 2010 (two days ago, a year back) I uploaded my sixth Bible teaching video entitled “Joshua & the Battle of Jericho (A prophetic picture of Christ’s Second Coming)”.  I pray you will watch the video.  It’s intense.  You may have to pause it here and there.  You may even have to watch it several times.  But in the end, your faith will grow as you learn (without a shadow of a doubt) the entire battle scene of Joshua & the Israelites conquering Jericho was a PRECISE PROPHETIC PICTURE of Jesus Christ’s soon coming battle with the Antichrist and an Earth full of ungodly people during his Second Coming.

Beware of Today's Preachers!

On Sunday July 22, 2007 I was attending church.  As I went to sit down in my pew after the worship portion of the service was over, I unexpectedly heard God speak these words very clearly and sternly to me: “Get your Bible and your things and LEAVE NOW!!!”  Woah, I was SHOCKED!  But believe me … I KNOW the Lord’s voice, so I immediately got my things together and embarrassedly ran out of there like the building was on fire! Now, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the Lord speak to you directly, but if you have, you know there is always additional understanding that follows His few spoken words.  Well, such was the case this day … for even as I was fleeing the church, I knew what He was telling me was He didn’t want me attending ANY church buildings anymore!  And I obeyed, and am still obeying to this day.

Then, less than 5 months later, on the Saturday Sabbath morning of December 8, 2007, I awoke to the powerful presence of the Spirit of the Lord revealing to me the incredible meaning behind the Israelite's bondage-to-Promise Land story.  It was information I had NEVER heard from ANY minister on TV or in ALL my years of church going.  It was knowledge I didn’t even know existed in God’s Word!  I again was SHOCKED!  And the rest is history … much more incredible Biblical understanding, the book, the website, the videos, this blog, and now technology where I am able to contact over 400 new people everyday with this message.  No doubt, it’s been a remarkable journey!

Now listen, I’m not advocating people run from their churches.  I’ve written this blog to bear witness to what’s happened to me, because people online continually ask me, “Do you go to church, and if so, where?”  So now I can simply point them to this blog, which will save me time in answering the many emails I get each day.  But I do want to say the following in all sincerity and concern for you: Be VERY WARY of whom you listen to expound on God’s Word, for Satan has concocted many subtly false and disastrous doctrines that he speaks through preacher’s mouths in today’s churchianity world.  The point of these doctrines is threefold: (1) to make you believe obtaining eternal life is a sure thing from something you prayed or mentally acknowledge, (2) to remove your fear of God, (3) and then to lessen your desire and concern for having to live righteously.  The end result is … you remain FULL of pride (selfishness), love your earthly life, and willfully sin (disobey the 10 love commandments) at every step, all the while attending church each week and thinking you are fine and on your way to heaven, when the reality is you are fumbling and stumbling like a drunkard headfirst towards the precipice of hell!

None of this should surprise you though, for the VERY SAME THINGS (deceptive and destructive demonic doctrines) were being told through preacher's mouths in Jesus’ day. Listen to Christ confront them about it: “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shut the door of the Kingdom of Heaven in people’s faces. You won’t go in yourselves, and you don’t let others enter either. What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shamelessly cheat widows out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, you will be severely punished. What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you cross land and sea to make one convert, and then you turn that person into twice the child of hell you yourselves are!” (Matthew 23:13-15).  I’ll leave it to you to discern how these EXACT SAME THINGS are happening today!  But please, please, for the love of the eternal destiny of your soul, beware of today’s preachers my dear friends: "Beware of the deceptive teachings of the Pharisees and Sadducees" - Jesus (Matthew 16:6)

The 'What is Truth' Video

In last week’s blog I wrote: “The Bible is like a puzzle with its many terms — e.g. love, truth, light, bearing fruit, faith, grace, etc — being the pieces.  Sadly, most people (even preachers) have no clue how these pieces all neatly fit together; thus, when reading the Bible, most people become confused, and the truth of God’s salvational (how to obtain eternal life) doctrine always remains unclear in their mind.  Truly, the most important aspect of the book God had me write is the fact that while the reader is reading it, the beautiful pieces (terms) of God’s Word begin snapping together in their mind, and when they are finished, leave them staring in perfect clarity at a completed picture of God’s Word.  And this wisdom and understanding is priceless, for the reader then knows with complete assurance the truth of God’s salvational doctrine, which gives them a better chance of DOING what they need to DO to lay hold on eternal life for their soul.”

After writing the above last week, I then discussed how the “10 Commandments” are really just a detailed explanation of the “Two Great Commandments” — namely, (1) to love God with all your heart and (2) to love your neighbor as yourself (also known as the “Golden Rule”).  The first 4 Commandments express how to love God and the last 6 express how to love your neighbor.  Thus, the 10 Commandments can and should be forever known in people’s minds as the “10 LOVE Commandments”, which equal the Golden Rule!  I wish this information was so engrained in people’s spirits that whenever they heard the word “love” they would instantly think, “Oh, that’s the 10 Commandments!”  Or if they heard someone talking about the 10 Commandments, they would instantly think “Oh, that’s just how a person LOVES!”

Ok, so this week I’m breaking out a new Bible puzzle piece … the word is “TRUTH”.  This is so simple folks … are you ready?  The Truth is Love!  Yes, the “Truth” is also EXACTLY equal to the “10 Love Commandments” & the “Golden Rule”.  Do you understand?  Don’t take this revelation lightly, for it will help GREATLY in comprehending God’s Word.  For instance, Jesus said: “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that DOETH TRUTH cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (love)” (John 3:19-21).  See, “doing truth” means “obeying the 10 Love Commandments”.  In other words, Jesus was saying, “Anyone that keeps the 10 Love Commandments loves the light, and their deeds are proved Godly.”

Well, I’m not going to rewrite the book in this blog, but I sincerely hope you find time to read the book I wrote … the “Truth” chapter is chapter 12.  On October 12, 2010 (two days ago, a year back) I uploaded the video I created called “What is Truth” to support the message in this chapter of the book.  May it bless you mightily.

The 'What is Love' video

The Bible is like a puzzle with its many terms — e.g. love, truth, light, bearing fruit, faith, grace, etc — being the pieces.  Sadly, most people (even preachers) have no clue how these pieces all neatly fit together; thus, when reading the Bible, most people become confused, and the truth of God’s salvational (how to obtain eternal life) doctrine always remains unclear in their mind.  Truly, the most important aspect of the book God had me write is that while the reader is reading it, the beautiful pieces (terms) of God’s Word begin to snap together in their mind, and when they are finished, leave them staring in perfect clarity at a completed picture of God’s Word.  This wisdom and understanding is priceless, for the reader then knows with absolute assurance the full truth of God’s salvational doctrine, which gives them a better chance at DOING what they need to DO to lay hold on eternal life for their soul.

In this regard, just this past week I received the following perplexing comment on one of my YouTube videos: “Did you know that the greatest of all commandments are not part of the Ten Commandments?  Actually, all the commandments and laws are derived from only two commandments.  Jesus said this, answering the question of law experts in Matthew 22:36-40: ‘Teacher, which commandment is the greatest? And He said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all your soul and with all thy mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”  Do you hear the puzzlement?  This person started out by saying the two greatest commandments are NOT part of the Ten Commandments, then turns right around and says all the commandments are part of the two greatest commandments.  Huh?

The truth is this; the two great commandments ARE part of the 10 love commandments … they simply summarize them!  The first 4 love commandments define how to ‘love God with all your heart’ and the last 6 define how to ‘love your neighbor as yourself’.  Paul wrote: “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Romans 13:8-9).  See how the terms “the ten commandments” & “the two great commandments (better known as the Golden Rule)” fit together?  They are the same thing!  They are TOTALLY a part of each other!

After I replied to the above person, they wrote me back: “Yea, in Romans 13:8-10, Apostle Paul hit the nail right on the head with this.  It’s beautiful!  Gabriel, I’m reading your book.  It’s amazing.”  Yes, God’s Word is AMAZING!  It’s a beautiful masterpiece once fully understood.  Interestingly, on October 7, 2010 (exactly one year ago, today) I uploaded my fifth Bible teaching YouTube video entitled “What is Love” which deals precisely with the subject this person’s comment raised this week.
