Interesting

This is not the blog of a seasoned theologian. I do not consider myself an authority of any topic. Love is something I believe strongly in, in regards to religion. Wonder why that topic pops out so much… Doh! Then again I don’t even attend a church now. YAY for me! These topics have been extremely fascinating to me here lately. I want to share some things I find intriguing. Nuts you say? It wouldn’t be the first time…

Sometimes you feel like a nut.

End Time Prophesies

Tin Foil Hat

Yeah, I be rocking it.

Reveal

Revelations is fascinating. It is subject to much debate and many translations. I have found myself on many rabbit trails into the books of the Prophets. I want to share a few things I’ve found. I have requested permission to share info, as I don’t feel I could share this as eloquently as some others.

Revelation

It is just that, a revelation and not an enigma. It is not called the book of puzzle, confusion or doom. It reveals the Lambs supper and the Judgment of God.

Detective Work

The Bible is truly fascinating to me. I do believe that it is the Word of God. I do not apologize for that. I believe that God has a sense of humor. I believe that a lot of instances in the Old Testament are practically mirror images of events and things to come in the New Testament. I truly believe when people read the word they should be aware of the: who, why, when, where and how’s. Why was the book written? Who was the book to? What translations don’t paint the clearest picture in our native tongue or translation?

Anywho… Ezekiel

Life to me is a learning experience. I learn every day. I have been searching many, MANY sites, articles, translations and opinions on the subject of the Last Days. I have drawn my own conclusion. If you read this, I challenge you to follow your own heart and draw your own. The awesome things in life.

This article was very intriguing to me. Check it out!

Prophecies

Now, if you read the Bible. If you believe in the Power of God, I challenge you to delve in for yourselves. Read Revelation. Read the prophecies of the Old Testament Prophets. Feel free to share what you know. I am by no means the expert on everything.

Israel

Genesis 12:3

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.

I wouldn’t want to go there… The curse part that is.

Psalms 122:6

Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.

Luke 21:29-31

The World

Ephesians 6:12

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

The World means the world.

From Strong’s Concordance:

Kosmos

1) an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, government

2) ornament, decoration, adornment, i.e. the arrangement of the stars, ‘the heavenly hosts’, as the ornament of the heavens. 1 Pet. 3:3

3) the world, the universe

4) the circle of the earth, the earth

5) the inhabitants of the earth, men, the human family

6) the ungodly multitude; the whole mass of men alienated from God, and therefore hostile to the cause of Christ

7) world affairs, the aggregate of things earthly

a) the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments riches, advantages, pleasures, etc, which although hollow and frail and fleeting, stir desire, seduce from God and are obstacles to the cause of Christ

8) any aggregate or general collection of particulars of any sort

a) the Gentiles as contrasted to the Jews (Rom. 11:12 etc)

If this is what God meant, Then I am not against any people. I want them to know what:

gospel – euaggelion

 

1) a reward for good tidings

2) good tidings

a) the glad tidings of the kingdom of God soon to be set up, and subsequently also of Jesus the Messiah, the founder of this kingdom. After the death of Christ, the term comprises also the preaching of (concerning) Jesus Christ as having suffered death on the cross to procure eternal salvation for the men in the kingdom of God, but as restored to life and exalted to the right hand of God in heaven, thence to return in majesty to consummate the kingdom of God

b) the glad tidings of salvation through Christ

c) the proclamation of the grace of God manifest and pledged in Christ

d) the gospel

e) as the messianic rank of Jesus was proved by his words, his deeds, and his death, the narrative of the sayings, deeds, and death of Jesus Christ came to be called the gospel or glad tidings

and witness –martyreō

1) to be a witness, to bear witness, i.e. to affirm that one has seen or heard or experienced something, or that he knows it because taught by divine revelation or inspiration

a) to give (not to keep back) testimony

b) to utter honourable testimony, give a good report … GOOD NOT NASTY!

c) conjure, implore

truly mean.

1 Timothy 2:4

who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

REPENT!!!

CHILL OUT!!!

Repent- metanoeō

1) to change one’s mind, i.e. to repent

2) to change one’s mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one’s past sins

My goodness we have made this word into something deplorable and disgusting. Where does it even say go into all the world and tell them to REPENT!!! ::POPVEIN:: Who do we turn to anyway? Jesus or other Christians? Us or Him? It really isn’t hard. I have to EVERY day in fact. If I get angry and have a poor attitude or intentions. YEP, I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO DO THAT. I just go straight to God. I ask Jesus to forgive me. I ask Him to help me. To help me know how to deal with a certain situation or show me why I see something a certain way. Do I need to change something? Learning. Self Awareness. God Awareness. Isn’t it PC or something to continue to grow and learn?

Easy. Open the Door.

Got a better choice of action? Punish myself? Give up at my humanity? Off myself, because I am not perfect yet? Not pray? Not ask God for help or understanding? Turn my back on God? Hide under a rock? Didn’t Adam and Eve hide? I don’t think that resolved the situation.

Come

Hebrews 4:16

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Revelations 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.

Doesn’t sound like Jesus made His move to turn His back to us. I doubt he waits to drop kick us if we make a mistake.

The Rapture (church jargon)

Catching away.

Pre, Mid or Post? Fight! GOGOGO!

Who flippin cares? Watch and pray? We know the season, not the day. What really happens in the season? Details plox? Not just rain or war. I do note that other times of extreme judgment God got the righteous out of there…

The Virgins

Matthew 25:1-13

Be wise. Know what might be kind of funny or messed up? PC love might say if the wise ones loved the foolish, then they would give away their “oil”. Neither would make it then, as they wouldn’t have enough. Just a rabbit trail on the whole, “TURN THE OTHER CHEEK BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO SHUTTUP AND THAT IS THE ONLY SCRIPTURE I KNOW!” argument (older posts).

Judgment

If we are doing something for so long that we cannot. Like a parent with a child, God will put a stop to it. I still highly believe in His Love and Grace. If a parent didn’t warn or put a stop to a child that wanted to drink something poisonous, how could that be love?

This is what I see God’s Judgment is. Totally motivated by patience and love. God is Love. He is long suffering. If He created us for a purpose of Family, we can close our eyes and deny it all we want. Science won’t make “it” go away. Our loud “LALALALA” song while covering our ears won’t either.

The last day judgment will be worse than the days of Noah… There is a scripture for that I am trying to find.

The Timeline

We are no longer in the time of blood sacrifices. We are in a time of Jesus Righteousness. The time of GRACE.

2 Corinthians 5:21

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

He cleansed us. The “Church” did not. 21st century American church didn’t either. Jesus laid down his life.

Romans 3:20

Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.

SORRY FOLKS! Human righteousness is bunk! No good. Not enough. He did the work. We are clean because of Him. Actively grow, change, learn and seek Him imo.

We life in His grace NOW. This is a free gift. He did the heavy lifting. I do not want to push ANY away from this because I do not like their outfit, lifestyle, family structure, sins!!! (ohhhhh), personality, past, present, future, or what have you. That ain’t my place…

Revelation Judgment

Revelation talks about a time of judgment. I DO NOT want to be here when that happens (Matthew 24:22) . God warned Noah. God warned Lot.

Matthew 24:36-39

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

FEAR NOT!

This is not where I ask for your mortgage payments, or pop a vein about: when, where, who and how. Do your laundry. Pray. Love. Live. Watch.

People have said it for years!!!

AND GUESS WHAT!? Whether it happens tomorrow, or in 30 years; if God said it, make no mistake about it, it will happen. I would HATE to be a scoffer outside the boat when the door was shut. My face would change instantly.   😯

1 Thessalonians 4:18

Therefore encourage each other with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:4

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

We might not have a date to pass around, if we listen to the still small voice, we are not ignorant to the times either.

WATCH AND PRAY

Matthew 24:42-43

42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.

2 Timothy 1:7

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Wedding Feast…

Is a feast… A party. Fun times.

Such a Time

Random thought…

There is also a scripture that says She will stand alone. Eek… Still reading more on this.

Esther 4:14

 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Not a Scholar

I am by no means a Biblical scholar. I am not a theologian. Just this person without a face online. This is my perspective. My two cents. I am not always right. I am not always wrong either. This is my place for my opinion. Thank you God for freedom of speech! If you have insight, share away!

Damascus

Heap? Isaiah 17:1

Wars and rumors of wars…

Bob: There have always been wars u dummy!

Me: No U!

Read the specifics. There is more.

Exciting

If we are the generation, ( Mark 13:30 I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.) I cannot think of anything more exciting.

His Bride (wife…)

Ephesians 5:27

and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

Radiant is not on her back. Radiant is not engaged in the massive gerbil wheel of haughty arguments and “right” denominations. You know, the right way? Jesus is the way. I didn’t stutter. Either there is a truth, or there isn’t. If a rose is red, it’s red. Period. There are some “truths” I don’t want to roulette with. I either exist or I don’t. A platypus is a platypus. Sheesh.

Radiant is completely restored. Restoration.

Sounds more awesome than a superhero’s life. Dragons, prophecies like a puzzle, Epic good vs. evil. Signs and wonders. Physics don’t limit God.

Just some things to watch.

Exodus Judgments

Look strikingly similar to the last ones (locusts, frogs, blood)

Live

So in my own little bubble here, this could be very easy for me to say. I’d rather live for Christ than die for him. I have heard people say we do more good on the other side. I think they would do more good to be quiet.

Isaiah 54:17

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

There is martyrdom in the bible. Who knows what my future holds? I figure I can do more good here on this planet alive, than I can dead.

2 Thessalonians 3:3

But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.

2 Timothy 4:18

18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Psalms 91

When we Pray

1 Timothy 2:2

Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. (Even if you don’t agree with them!)

The fighting Church

Like to fight?

I cannot lie, I have found myself all beastly and red in the face angry before. Try to convince me you haven’t.  Right passion, wrong direction maybe… Like to fight? This is something I wouldn’t want to miss. How? Love, prayer, The Blood, Power of the tongue (life and death) (the whole flesh and blood thing that we DON’T fight against) . NOT protesting PEOPLE. I am for people. God’s cause obviously was for all PEOPLE. Isn’t it about time they hear that part? He made them after all. Our plan for them doesn’t matter. What was God’s plan when he formed them with love and a dream?

Who Are You?

Galatians 4:7

So you are no longer a slave, but a son (daughter, family); and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Romans 8:1

Sorry, I just cannot believe after his blood dripped out of his shredded fleshly body that he stands around waiting to drop kick us if we fart. Wait, can I say that?

Father God

Luke 11:11- The Best Father

Luke 15:11-32 – The Prodigal Child

John 10 – The Good Shepherd

This family has more commitment than what we may be used to.

The Devil

Colossians 2:15

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Defeated… Smoke and mirrors… All talk… That is the battlefield of the mind. That idiot just wants to take credit for everything. What better strategy than non-existence to some, and superpowers to others? I can bend a spoon too… This chess board is a little bit bigger than the illuminati…

God Still Isn’t Scared. We shouldn’t be either.

Love Again

John 13:34-35

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

That is all!

Now you know my stance. Ever studying and learning too.

Carry on!

O Kewl

Apparently there is a blessing associated with reading the book of Revelation. Missed that part before. I might have to read it every morning…

Revelation 1:3

There are also three distinct groups in the word. I was clumping some together:

1 Corinthians 10:32
