John 1:4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. Verse 5_9. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world (Isaiah 60:1-3; 62:1-2).
Isaiah 60:1-3. Arise, shine, for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising (Isaiah 42:1-8; 49:1-7).
Isaiah 62:1-2. For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all the kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name (Christian. Acts 11:26).
Isaiah 62:12. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken (born again in Jesus Christ, The true Light, he is The Redeemer).
John 8:12. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 3:18-19. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name (JESUS) of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and man loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. Verse 20-21. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (Eph.5:11-13). But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wraught in God.
John 9:4-5. I must work the work of him that sent me, whilst it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (Jn.4:34; Jn.5:19,30; Jn.11:9-10; Jn.17:4). As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
John 12:35-36. Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth (Jer.13:15-17). While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.
Jeremiah 13:15-17. Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud, for the LORD hath spoken. Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness. But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord’s flock is carried away captive (Lk.19:41).
1Corinthians 15:8(1-10). And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time (Paul saw the Light, Jesus Christ the Messiah, and spoke with him).
Luke 9:27. But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
Peter, John, and James saw the Lord Jesus Christ in his heavenly Kingdom with Moses and Elijah giving 100% proof that he is the resurrection, and the life-John 11:25.
2Peter 1:16-18. For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye witnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
1John 1:5-7. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness (Matt.6:22-23), we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another(v.3), and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin
James 1:17. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Verse 18. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
1Peter 1:23. Being born again, not of corruptible seed (false doctrines and bibles), but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
John 1:11-14. He came unto his own(the Jews) and his own received him not. But as many as received him (Jews and Gentiles), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Acts 9:1-6. And Saul, yet breathing out threatening and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutes though me? And he said, Who art thou Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutes: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.(Acts 22:6-8; Acts 26:12-18).
Psalm 27:1.(If one is born again) The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 36:7-10. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantlu satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
Isaiah 45:17,23-25(17-25). But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end….I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear (Phil.2:10-11). Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory (Gal.3:29).
Luke 2:30-32. For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
Luke 11:34-36. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
Acts 26:18(15-18). To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
2Corinthians 4:6-7. For God, who hath commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
1Peter 2:9-10. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in times past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Matthew 5:14-16. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
We who are born again are the true city of the living God, set on God’s holy hill in heaven, the new Jerusalem.
Hebrew 12:22-24. But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly of the church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Galatians 4:26. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all (who are born again).
We have read in the scriptures that we should walk in the light, which is impossible if one is not born again. We read in John 3:3-5 that we must be born again. This can only happen when we truly wash our soul in the water of the word and pray to God for the infilling of the Holy Spirit of God. This also proves the bible is not understood nor can be understood by those not born again. If one is not born again one cannot enter the Kingdom of God. Both Jew and Gentile need to believe on the Messiah who is the light of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ, the living God who was manifested to the world about two thousand years ago.
Ephesians 5:26, 18. That he (Jesus)might sanctify and cleanse it (the church-his elect) with the washing of water by the word… v.18.. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit:
John 15:3, 7, 14. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you… If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you… Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Psalm 119:105. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Remember, Jesus is the word, Jn.1:1-3,14; Jn.14:6.
John 1:1-3, 14. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, And the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him (the Word); and without him was not anything made that was made… And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 14:6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me.(read to v.9)
Proverbs 4:20-23. My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
Proverbs 6:20-23. (Pointing to God’s word)My son, keep thy Father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou wakest it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.
Isaiah 49:6. And he said, It is a light thing that thou shoudest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
Isaiah 12:2. Behold, God is my salvation (Yeshuwah); I will trust, and not be afraid: For the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation (My Jesus). Verses 3-6. Therefore with joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. (John 4:14. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst: but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. John 7:37-38. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water).
Isaiah 12:4-6. And in that day shall you say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name (Jesus), declare his doings among the people (Acts 10;34-38), make mention that his name is exalted (Phil.2:9; Isaiah 45:23). Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion (Heb.12:22, Christians): for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee (Matt.18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them).
Isaiah 44:1-6. Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen (speaking of the flesh of God, Jacob, anointed by the Spirit of God, Israel- see Genesis 32:28): Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. One shall say, I am the LORD’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel. Thus saith the Lord, the King of Israel, and his redeemer, the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
Revelation 1:10-18. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man (Jesus), clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire (He is the Judge); And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword (Isaiah 49:2): and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not, I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Isaiah 49:1-2. Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name (Matt.1:21; Luke 1:31-33; Isaiah 43:10-20). And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; In the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me; And he said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified (Jesus is Israel, Matt. 3:17; 17:5).
Hebrew 4:12. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Revelation 19:11-16. And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness doth he judge and make war ( Psalm 9:8; 96:12-13; Rom.9:28…Jesus is coming back as Judge, not Messiah). His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name was called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God (Rev.14:18-20). And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
They did not believe Jesus was God because they could not accept God would come down to talk to them face to face in human form with such humility (John 10:33). They did not believe Jesus because they could not believe a prophet would come out of Gallilee (John 7:40-43,52). They expected to see God come out of Bethlehem as a conquering king (Lk.17:20; Acts 1:6; Isaiah 1:25-28). We know he was born in Bethlehem and when Herod determined to kill all new babies under two years of age God warned Joseph to take Mary and Jesus and flee to Egypt. After Herod’s death they came back to Israel and settled in Nazareth where Jesus grew up.
Isaiah 43:5-20. Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth (Acts 15:17); Even everyone that is called by my name (Isaiah 63:19; James 2:7): for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears (read from verse 1). Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, it is truth. Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD, and besides me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was, I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it (Matt.16:18…the gates of hell shall not prevail)? Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships. I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.(The same God in the New Testament, 1Tim.6:14-16). Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters: Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow. Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert (Isaiah 35). The beasts of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls (devil spirits, they worshipped Jesus-Mark 5:6): because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.(John 4:13,14; Jn.7:37,38).
Revelation 1:8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
1John 5:20. And 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.
1Timothy 6:14-16. That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
1Timothy 3:16. And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. (Clearly God himself is Jesus)
1Corinthians 1:23-24. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block (Isaiah 8:13-15), and unto the Greeks foolishness (1Cor.2:14); But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Isaiah 8:13-15. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
Jeremiah 10:10-16. But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. He hath made the earth by his power (Jesus), he hath established the world by his wisdom (Jesus), and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens (Rev.1:15), and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures. Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molted image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish (Luke 19:41-44). The portion of Jacob is not like them: for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: The LORD of hosts is his name (Isaiah 47:4; 54:5).
Revelation 11:15-18 (the 7th trumpet, coming soon). And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy the earth. Verse 19. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thundering, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Rev.16:19; 14:7-11; 6:12-17).
Revelation 10:5-7. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
Revelation 6:12-13. And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair (The Sun of righteousness, Malachi 4:2, overshadowed by the darkness of evil), and the moon became as blood (The law of God trampled underfoot, Heb.10:28-31); And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind (the great apostacy as Christians fall away due to the mighty wind of false doctrine-James 1:5-8. This is the situation today).
Malachi 4:1-2. For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud (Like gay pride), yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves to the stall.
2Peter 3:10. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
Hebrew 10:28-31. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite to the Spirit of grace (Outrageous contempt for God). For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Revelation 6:14-17. And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together (whump!!!); and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand.
Revelation 1:7. (Zechariah 12:10 was fulfilled at the cross-John 19:37. When Jesus comes back as Judge there will be no more spirit of grace and supplication, it will be with the wrath of God without mixture) Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him (Matt.26:63-64): and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Revelation 14:9-11,18. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture (no more grace and supplication, no more mercy..it is too late if you are not saved when you see Jesus return) into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name… And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the cluster of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe (Gen.15:16. Luke 21:24, the time of the Gentiles is come to the full, Luke 21:24. It is judgement day). Verse19. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
The mark of the beast is that people do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the living God, and are not truly born again. They do not walk with the word of God as their only hope. Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1,14). When we are born again we are made in his image, and as we grow in the word we have the ‘mind of Christ’, 1Cor.2:16 and we do the works with our hands that God purposed beforehand, Eph.2:10. The light of Christ then should shine through us as we grow more in our daily walk with Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
Those who are not truly born again are still under the power of the devil and so have the mind of the devil, the god of this world, 2Corinthians 4:4. Their mind is blinded by the devil so they cannot receive the gospel, and the works of their hands are evil.
John 6:66. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. They could not accept the life style Jesus requires of us if we are truly born again, a separation from the world and the things of the world, Romans 12:1,2; James 4:4; 2Corinthians 6:14-18 and 1Peter 4:1-4 for example.
I believe the judgement of God will soon be upon this world, and all its inhabitants that have rejected the Lord Jesus Christ, the living God. Remember, we will be judged by his standards, not our own.
2Corinthians10:3-6. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God (666), and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
I have established in my papers at www.whathathGodsaid.org that all who are truly born again, whether Jew or Gentile, are the Israel of God under the new covenant, the true Jew. The old covenant was nailed to the cross and is no more.
Romans 7:4. (1-4)Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him that is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. This applies to Jews and Gentiles, whosoever will believe on the Risen Lord Jesus Christ, the living God and our Redeemer. This is the only way to heaven (John 14:6).The following verse applies just as much today, take heed of yourselves, and WATCH.
Amos 4:11-12. I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, Prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.
Revelation 16:15-21. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon (printout this topic from my website). And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not seen since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came into rememberance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (30+ kilo?): and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail (? asteroids); for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Amos 5:14-15. (A true Christian life, not religion) Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgement in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.
Luke 21:34-36. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness (Deut.29:19-21), and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare it shall come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
May the living God protect all his people and bring them to fruition according to his plan, in Jesus name, Amen. God bless all his children with truth.
