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.

Sign of the Times – Homosexuality – God’s Judgment is Upon Us

Sadly, today the United States of America’s Supreme Court ruled that same sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. The Bible’s verdict on homosexual behavior, as with all sexual immorality, including sex before marriage (fornication), adultery, etc. is that it is sinful and if one chooses not to repent, results in death—eternal death.

“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 1:7)

Please take note that our living God is holy and will not put up with living in sin, whether it be homosexuality, fornication, adultery, etc..

It’s astonishing that many so-called Christians say that sexual sin is OK with God, as His Word states the opposite. Please look at (Genesis 19:1-11; Leviticus 20:13, 18:22-24; Mark 10:6-8; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 7:2; 1 Timothy 1:8-11).

“For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse. For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened… Therefore God delivered them over in the cravings of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. Amen. This is why God delivered them over to degrading passions. For even their females exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. The males in the same way also left natural relations with females and were inflamed in their lust for one another. Males committed shameless acts with males and received in their own persons the appropriate penalty of their error. And because they did not think it worthwhile to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness… Although they know full well God’s just sentence—that those who practice such things deserve to die—they not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them.” (Romans 1:18-32)

These people once knew God, but reject His truth. Sex, or making love, is beautiful and of God if done only within marriage between a man and a woman.

Why Jihad (Islamic Holy War) is Taken Quite Seriously

Jihad Secures Salvation and Pleasures in Paradise

Muslims who fulfill Islam’s command to perform Jihad (fighting, killing others, and being killed to propagate Islam), obtain assurance of salvation by Allah. This is why it is important to pray for Muslims that they come to know Jesus who shed His blood as a sacrifice for all mankind. He died for us, so that we may receive the gift of salvation. We do not shed our blood to gain salvation.

According to Islam, an obedient Muslim man acquires sexual delights in paradise after death, including many virgin girls (Muslim tradition declares 72) awaiting the man’s arrival. Therefore, since many Muslim men perceive sexual pleasures in paradise as an elevated reward from Allah, they want to make sure they are obedient to Allah’s most stringent duties, which would assure them of these prizes. They have learned from Islam that Allah gives the greatest gifts in paradise to those who participate in Jihad. A couple verses describing a Muslim man’s rewards in paradise are as follows (I apologize for the graphic language, but all words including paraphrases are quoted directly from Qur’an and Hadith texts published and purchased in Saudi Arabia):

“The which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? Reclining upon the couches lined with silk brocade, and the fruits of the two Gardens will be near at hand….Wherein both will be those (maidens) restraining their glances upon their husbands, whom no man or jinn ‘yatmithhunna’ (has opened their hymens with sexual intercourse) before them…. (In beauty) they are like rubies and coral…. Is there any reward for good – other than good? …there are two other gardens…. Therein will be fair (wives) good and beautiful…. ‘Houris’ (beautiful fair females) restrained in pavilions…. Whom no man or jinn ‘yatmithhunna’ (has opened their hymens with sexual intercourse) before them…. Reclining on green cushions and rich beautiful mattresses….” (sura 55:53-78)

It’s repulsive to imagine Muslim men in paradise having virgin girls harnessed in pavilions to sexually violate at their bidding. In contrast, our God, Yahweh, is a loving God and would never permit such atrocities. The Lord Jesus gave Himself up for us, so that we could be transformed into the bride of Christ.

Jihad Brings Higher Rewards

Muslims who participate in Jihad gain certain entrance into paradise and a higher reward from Allah according to both the Qur’an and Hadith as the following verses state:

“Think not of those who are killed in the way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord and they have provision.” (sura 3:169)

“Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter, fight in the cause of Allah, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allah, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.” (sura 4:74)

“That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Mohammed) and that you strive hard and fight in the cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (If you do so) He will forgive your sins, and admit you into the Gardens of Eternity (Paradise), that is indeed the great success.” (sura 61:11-12)

There are more than forty verses in the Qur’an that advise Muslims to kill in Allah’s name. In fact, according to Islam, there is no reward higher than that which is given to a person who participates in Jihad, as the following verse suggests:

“O Messenger of Allah, please let me know some action which may be equal to Jihad in recompense.” He (Mohammed) answered, “I am not aware of any such action.” (Hadith, No.1298)

When individuals come to me and say, “I have a Muslim friend who doesn’t seem dangerous…” The first question I ask is, “Are they reading the Qur’an?” Because if they are, they could very well become dangerous.

Sign of the Times – A Wicked King

“A king’s heart is like streams of water in the Lord’s hand: He directs it wherever He chooses.” (Proverbs 21:1)

Even wicked kings’ hearts are in the hands of the Lord. Why? Our God is a loving Father who disciplines those He loves. And due to most of America turning against Him, we now have a president who is absolutely ruining our nation, who at every turn, goes against the Godly principles upon which this nation was founded, sides with our enemies, chooses death (abortion) over life, supports gay marriage, and much more.

So what do we do about it? We must humble ourselves before our living God and repent. Only then will we have hope for this nation.

Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory – A Lie

As spoken of in great detail in God’s Word (Matthew 24:4-31, Mark 13:5-13, Luke 21:8-27, Revelation 6-7), we are told the signs previous to Jesus’ return. Let us take heed and “Watch!” as Jesus commands, so that we are not in the dark.

Fearing the Lord is Required

“Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.” (Psalm 2:10-12)

We ask, dear Lord, that we all, especially our leaders, serve You with fear and rejoice with trembling.

Islam – Loves Death

“For whoever finds me (Wisdom) finds life, 
and obtains favor from the Lord but he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all those who hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:35-36)

And Islam loves death, and so Islam has no wisdom. Muslims who are reading the Qur’an are taught that murdering others gives them a one-way ticket to paradise, which of course, is a lie, as “The thief (Satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

Please pray for Muslims, as many are coming to Jesus. I have met three previous Muslims who accepted Jesus as Savior after He appeared to them in dreams. Praise God!
