If You Believe Jesus Died and Rose Again

Today’s English-translated versions of Paul’s Greek-written letters gives Satan his best fodder to concoct false doctrines in order to deceive the world about how salvation (obtaining eternal life) is achieved.  If you’re a churchgoer, no doubt you’ve heard the following verse a hundred times: “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).  Cherry pick this verse out of the Bible, twist its meaning, and what do you get … A false salvation doctrine touting ALL a person has to DO to go to heaven is “believe Jesus died & rose again” and say “Jesus is Lord” with their mouth.  Ludicrous!!!  Allow me to clarify the meaning of Paul’s words.

First, you should understand Paul’s audience and mission.  Paul traveled around the known world speaking mostly to Jews, Greeks & Romans who had never heard the story of the man Jesus and what he had just done.  He encountered numerous people who believed in the dozens of gods of Roman mythology and Greek mythology.  But Paul desired for them to believe in the teachings of the Bible (what we know today as the Old Testament).  So how would Paul go about trying to get them to believe?  He’d tell them the story of the man Jesus (what he just taught and did) and then he’d show them where in the Jewish scrolls (Old Testament) it was all prophesied that he’d do these things!  That’s right … “fulfilled prophecy” was Paul’s tool to get people to believe in the God of the Bible!

So, Paul would teach things like: “I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep (those who have died), that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him” (I Thessalonians 4:13-14).  Say what?  Did Paul just say … a person’s “belief in Jesus’ death & resurrection” IS THE REASON God will bring the righteous back to Earth one day?  Of course not!!!  Paul was just making a comparison truth, meaning … folks, if you now believe in the story I’ve just told you of the death and resurrection of the man Jesus, YOU SHOULD ALSO NOW HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE the righteous will live with God forevermore, because the same man Jesus taught these things!  Nothing more or less was meant by Paul’s words.

So, likewise, in the Roman’s verse, Paul meant … If you now believe in the story of this man Jesus’ death & resurrection, YOU SHOULD ALSO BELIEVE that you can be saved (obtain eternal life) through him if you choose to make him Lord of your life.  Then Paul would teach them Jesus’ teachings, for to make Jesus their Lord would mean they would have to “follow him”.  If someone is your Lord and Master, you DO what they SAY!!!  And Jesus taught people to “obey God’s 10 love commandments (10LC)”.  It’s really that simple!  Thus, Paul would also, harmoniously, teach: “For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the DOERS of the LAW (10LC) shall be justified” (Romans 2:13).  Amen.

Enjoy the Sabbath!

Story of Noah Reveals Start of Millennium?

If you’ve read the book I wrote, you know the story of Noah and the Great Flood is a detailed prophetic picture of the events that will happen during Jesus Christ’s Second Coming to Earth – briefly, one righteous house of people will be lifted up safely into the air, while a world of ungodly people are destroyed, all during Earth’s 6,000 year.  But could there be other “timing” information God was revealing through the story?

Remember, also, God divinely instated 7 Feast to be kept each year, which were also prophetic in nature, revealing the “time” during a calendar year the Messiah would fulfill certain events.  He died on Passover, was buried during Unleavened Bread, rose on Firstfruits, and poured out his Holy Spirit on Weeks, all during Earth’s 4,000 year.  This leaves the Feasts of Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles to be fulfilled, all during Earth’s 6,000 year.

Well, the lasts 3 Feasts are to be kept in the 7th month, during days 1, 10, and 15-21, respectively.  This means Christ will return, with the blowing of trumpets, in flaming fire, destroying the surface of planet Earth on the 1st day of the 7th month.  He will officially atone (forgive) the saints' sins during the 10th day of the 7th month.  And then, the saints will begin the restful Sabbath millennium, where Christ tabernacles (lives) with them, sometime during the 15th – 21st days of the 7th month.

So, what does all this have to do with the story of Noah?  Well, in the story, we read this: “And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat” (Genesis 8:4).  Was God hinting at the start-time, during a calendar year, of Christ’s glorious, restful, Sabbath millennium with these words over 1,000 years before He gave Moses and the Israelites His 7 Feasts?  It wouldn’t surprise me!

Peaceful Sabbath!

Noah Movie Trailer Released (starring Russell Crowe)

Well, the time has arrived.  Just yesterday I saw my first trailer for the new Noah movie.  And it looks amazing!!!  I first found out about the movie on July 13, 2012 and wrote the following blog The New NOAH Movie (Starring: Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly; Producer: Darren Aronofsky).  Please reread that blog now.

After writing the blog, I opened a twitter account and began following the movie’s producer Darren Aronofsky’s ongoing tweets about the movie.  I unashamedly bombarded his twitter account, informing him of the true prophetic meaning behind the story of Noah, and continually linked my short but powerful Noah YouTube video for him to watch.  I also “liked” his Facebook page, and did the same thing, as well as the Facebook pages of other actors in the movie.  Sadly, with all that done, I never heard a single word from anyone.  But I prayed God’s will be done!

Well, now I just got to see the movies trailer yesterday!  And I was STUNNED!  Why?  Because the trailer has scenes of fireballs hitting the Earth, and the Earth burning!!!  Hmmm … did Darren receive my message?  Did he watch my prophetic Noah YouTube video?  Did he change some of the film’s script?

Time will tell!  Can’t wait to see it!

Blessed Sabbath,

Soul Sleep (Fact or Fiction?)

Soul sleep is the teaching that when a person dies, their soul “sleeps” (has no thoughts, desires, or emotions) until the time of their future resurrection.  Now, while what you believe about this matter really doesn’t matter, as it is not an eternal life issue, I still felt led this week to say a few words about it, because I love all truth.  So let me say right up front, this doctrine is Biblically OBVIOUSLY false!

One proof that our souls continue living (have thoughts, desires, and emotions) after we “die” on Earth is the souls of the deceased Moses and Elijah appearing and talking with Jesus during his time on Earth: “And, behold, there appeared unto them (the disciples) Moses and Elijah talking with Jesus” (Matthew 17:3).  How could this be if Moses and Elijah were in soul sleep?  It couldn’t.

Furthermore, Jesus told the Sadducees: “Have ye not read in the book(s) of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto Moses, saying, I AM the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?  He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err” (Mark 12:26-27).  See, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had been long since dead when Moses arrived on Earth, but God referred to them as if they were living when He spoke to Moses, saying “I AM the God …”  If they were dead, as in soul sleeping, God would have most likely said “I WAS the God …”

Jesus’ story of the rich man and Lazarus also proves the souls of the dead are still alive RIGHT NOW!  How?  Because in hell, the rich man cried out to Abraham: “I have five brethren (please send Lazarus) that he may testify unto them, lest they also come to this place of torment” (Luke 16:28).  If the souls of the dead sleep (have no thoughts) until the last day, the time of the resurrection, how does this story have any basis in reality?  It wouldn’t! But rest assured, Jesus always spoke things of Truth.  Yes, all the souls of the people who have lived and died on this 5,985 year old Earth are still living somewhere else, even today, be it a good place or bad, awaiting the time of their resurrection and Judgment!

Happy Sabbath,

Brain Chip Implants

In the book I wrote, I clearly reveal from God’s Word that Jesus Christ DIED on the cross during Earth’s 4,000th solar year of existence and he will return to Earth during its 6,000th solar year of existence.  Since he died around the year AD 28 on our Gregorian calendar, this means he will return around the year AD 2028.  And thus, AD 2028 is the general timeframe for when Earth will reach 6,000 years old!  With this Godly prophetic “time” knowledge understood, let’s take a look at what’s going on in the world today.

In chapter 1 “God’s Master Time Plan” of my book, I discuss some AMAZING achievements mankind has accomplished in just the last 100 years or so – exponential population growth (1 billion to over 7 billion in just the last 200 yrs), explosion of knowledge, increase in speed of travel (planes, trains, and automobiles), connection of the entire globe (satellites), upsurge in technology (computers), invention of weapons of mass destruction, etc.  So I ask you, what is the random chance ALL these INCREDIBLE things could be happening right now, RIGHT ON CUE, in the closing years of what the Bible clearly says is the end of 6,000 years on Earth?

And now, this past week I came across a CRAZY article about brain chip implants.  Some scientists are saying that by AD 2020 people will be connected to the internet by a chip implanted into their brain!  By just a person’s thoughts they will be able to surf the internet, receiving the information directly to their brain!   CRAZY!!!  Can you imagine?  Don’t know the answer to something, just “look it up” in your brain!

Still think “mark of the beast” technology isn’t possible?  Goodness, we’re thinking WAY past that now!!!  The technology to receive some “mark” on the right hand or forehead to be able to participate in the world’s commerce system is a piece of cake!  That “stuff” is ready now, and has been for awhile!  The man of lawlessness, the Antichrist, is living and breathing right now, waiting in the wings for his time!  Jesus is coming VERY, VERY SOON, my friends!  It’s time, like NONE OTHER, to decide where you want to live eternally, for this entire planet has a date with fire in a mere 15 years!!!

"A Chip in the Head"
