“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition (the Antichrist).” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3)

Let us not be deceived into believing we will be on a bed of roses when Jesus returns, as most churches are teaching. Jesus will not return until “the falling away” occurs and the Antichrist is revealed.

“Falling away” – In Greek: Apostasia; defection from truth.

And God’s Word is the Truth. In order for us to not fall away, we need to be in God’s Word daily. Start by reading the book of John and one Proverb a day, as there are 31 Proverbs, one for each day of the month. And if you miss a day, don’t feel you must catch up. Just read that day’s Proverb and focus on the verses that pop out at you. In the months to come, more and more will be revealed to you.

Being Physically Prepared & Trusting the Lord

“The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but deliverance is of the Lord.” (Proverbs 21:31)

No matter how much we prepare physically, and it is prudent to prepare for troubled times (Prov.22:3; 27:12), we must put our trust in the Lord who is our Deliverer. Thank You, Jesus!

Iranian Deal – Dangerous!

We cannot make any deal with Iran, as they are an Islamic nation and taught in their canonical texts that lying (Taquia in Arabic) is encouraged to promote Islam. They will absolutely break any deal in pursuit of worldwide Islamic dominion. Let us learn from history.

We must come against this before it’s too late. Lord help us.

Jesus’ Return!

Please do not be deceived in believing that Christians will be on a bed of roses when Christ returns. In fact, God’s Word is quite clear that before Jesus Christ returns, “there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.” (Mt. 24:21-22) Praise God, our days will be shortened, but we will be here for much distress. And please remember that the Antichrist doesn’t appear until there is great chaos in the world, offering a so-called peace. Why is this an important truth God wants me to share? Because most Christians are totally unprepared.

Instead of believing the false doctrine that Christians will be removed from the coming distress, we are told that the days of the elect will be shortened. In fact, Jesus states He will return “after the distress of those days” (Mt. 24:29-30; Mark 13:20-26; Luke 21:25-28. Also, please read Revelation 6-7. The rule I learned in Bible college is that there must be at least two passages of Scripture that say the same truth to ratify it as God’s Truth. Here we see four different passages, which state the same truth. Let us take heed and dig deep into God’s Word to prepare ourselves, as we do not want to be a part of the falling away, which has been occurring for some time now – a sign of end time prophecy. Many Christians are being deceived into believing the false doctrine that we will escape all distress. Let me ask you, “Which true prophet or disciple didn’t go through distress?”

As Paul wrote, “Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word, or by letter… Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition (the Antichrist).” (2 Thess. 2:1-3)

“Falling away” in Greek, apostasia; defection from truth (God’s Word); apostasy. In a strict sense, it means to place oneself away from or to stand away from someone; it is the separating of oneself for the purpose of not incurring the dangers of that association. Please beware and know the truth and the truth shall make you free! We must be well rooted in God’s Word in order to stand firm until the end!

Yet, in knowing this truth, please do not be in fear, as Jesus says, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16.33)

Once Saved, Always Saved – A Lie

“When wisdom enters your heart,
and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you;
 understanding will keep you… From those who leave the paths of uprightness 
to walk in the ways of darkness…
 nor do they regain the paths of life…” (Prov. 2:10-11,13,19)

Here we have two verses in the same Proverb, which state that one can not only leave the path of righteousness, but lose the path of life, salvation. Yes, thank You, Jesus, for Your mercy and grace to save us, but we cannot continue to live in sin and expect to be saved. It’s quite different to sin, ask for forgiveness, and repent from it than it is to live in sin, knowingly continue sinning, without repentance.

The Fear of the Lord

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Prov. 1:7) And “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…” (Prov. 9:10)

Fearing the Lord means to hate evil (Prov. 8:13) and to be afraid of His judgments (Psalms 119:120).

We are not to fear anything or anyone else, but we must fear our God. Otherwise, we won’t make it. Throughout God’s Word, we learn this. Yes, thank You, Jesus, for being the sacrifice for our sins, so that we can be saved. Yet, if we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we will fear Him who has the power of life and death.

Being Physically Prepared

“The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.” (Proverbs 27:12; 22:3)

Must be important to physically prepare, as this same verse appears twice in Proverbs, the book of wisdom. And with all that is going on in the world, and most importantly what Jesus says is to occur before His return, it is prudent to prepare.

When asked by His disciples. “What will be the sign of Your coming?” Jesus says, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pangs…” And He goes on. (Matthew 24:7-22; Mark 13:8-20; Luke 21:10-28) We are NOT going to be on a bed of roses when Jesus returns. We must take heed, as He gives us plenty of signs.

Please take note of one of the websites I have used to prepare:
