Time the eternal element:
Time is a most precious gift. Be careful to divide you time wisely and spiritually productively.
A long time school friend of mine, an ex airline captain and legendary acrobatic pilot was killed a few weeks ago as his plane crashed. I had met with him recently and knew he was not saved then.
The point is that our time is of utmost value and can get snatched away from us in a flash. – Ready or not!
I can’t imagine the horror of the unsaved, stepping into eternity and then discovering that the price for their salvation had already been paid, and they refused it.
I have come to a hairs breadth of losing my life back in the 70s before I was saved. When I think back of that it makes me shudder! In fact if you’re not saved, and if you step out of bed, you are on thin ice with a fire below it!
So many people spend their time on futile, purely materialistically orientated things. They have wasted their lives and sold themselves to self, the world and the demonic, knowingly or not.
But know this: Your great gift of time has a time-stamp on it which is running out!
There is great security in knowing that our God knows all about us and what we will do with the time He has blessed us with, which makes you a very important person! Those struggling with purpose, meaning, and “who or why, am I” questions, this is for you:
The following is a compilation of the entirety of Psalm 139, showing your value and importance to the kingdom:
“O Lord you have searched me and know me, you understand my goings and my thoughts. You are acquainted with all my ways. Every word on my tongue, You know altogether. You have hedged me in from behind and before. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Your right hand shall hold me and lead me. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. You saw me before I was formed, and in Your book I am written. How precious are your thoughts to me? Search me O God and see if there is any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.”
I hope the above Psalm is music to your ears and light to your life.
You are of major importance to our Lord and you need Him more than you may think!
The greatest hoax in world history is that God is not, and you don’t need His salvation and holiness! The greatest hoax is “Tomorrow is another day; everything will carry on as normal.” If you are not saved or just living for self – you have been solidly hoaxed, hoodwinked and hooked!
Most people today are rebels to the living God and His word and don’t even know it. But He knows it and knows it well – every little bit!
Dealing with end-time rebellion to God, and homosexuality in particular, these amazing verses below offer quite an incredible insight! You would be wise to take heed.
“God gave them up to uncleanness and the lusts of their heart”. (Romans 1:24) “God gave them up to vile passions, exchanging what is natural for that which is against nature (women with women, likewise men with men) Even as they would not retain God in their knowledge; God gave them over to a debased mind”. (Romans 1:26, 28)
And now observe the ending this discourse:
Romans 1:32 “These knowing the righteous judgement of God, that those who practise such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practise them.”
Here we see a clear condemnation of those who simply “approve” of these sins. Be careful what you agree with and give your approval to, because God puts you in the same boat as them! In the verse below we see the positive side of what we approve.
Philippians 1:9-10 “I pray that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offence until the day of Messiah.”
Today the world is on short-time fuse, spiralling downwards. Firstly they overlook evil, then permit it, then legalise it, then promote it, then celebrate it and then persecute those who still call it evil!
What a mess this world is in and it’s time is just about up! The shofar is blowing!
The cross produces resurrection which saves and makes holy. Those who are enemies of the cross are by extension not saved and are unholy. Those of “another Jesus” are cross-less and in the same situation. They must save themselves. They are cursed. (Galatians 1:8, 2 Corinthians 11:4)
You can’t kill a resurrected Lord and His word! The Bible therefore, is the only truly resurrected book in the world, being the word of the living God. That also means that all things related to God’s call and plan for Israel is found in resurrection, so to speak. You can’t kill that which is resurrected!
Many ministers of the gospel are primed to be great end-time deceivers, especially those who justify and approve the mixture of paganism and truth, and those who approve of replacement theology. All ministers who lessen the importance of the cross and resurrection are a dangerous commodity!
In these end times, as prophesied, we are seeing a massive increase in lying, deception, false prophets, and seducing perverse spirits all in rebellion to God and His word.
Unsaved, be careful, your time is almost up. The fire below is burning a big hole right through the thin ice you are on! And there is a welcoming party of horror and terror awaiting your arrival! In your welcome party are many leaders, celebrities, peers and people of note - the ones who you respected and followed all your life.
Isaiah 14:9 “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth, it has raised up from their thrones, all the kings of the nations.”
Isaiah 5:14 “Sheol (hell) has enlarged itself and opened its mouth beyond measure. Their glory and multitude and pomp, and he is jubilant shall descend into it.”
It’s time to know God deeply and intimately. It’s time to be known by our Lord, it’s time to stand out from the crowd, be holy and different. Time is running out!
Edition 498: December 3rd 2019
Rapture of the remnant:
These are words of life!
There are many who believe every single Christian will be raptured and others who believe that only those that meet certain conditions will be raptured. Of course this is a very important issue which we need to look into diligently.
The bottom line is that every true born-again Christian will be raptured. But that is a small group! It consists of few amongst the many of those who call themselves the church. Those of the counterfeit or false church, not truly born-again, will not be raptured. Only the remnant few will be.
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate for wide is the gate that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult (confined) is the way which leads to life and there are few who find it.”
We need to examine objectively who the true church is, and who it is not and why.
In these end-times the gap between the true and the false church is widening. The “remnant church” is a fairly broad term used for true, Bible-believing and applying Christians who have been properly born-again and who have the fruits to prove it.
It is not enough to simply profess to be a Christian, without the active new-birth, repentance and the following fruits.
It really is not up to us to decide who is truly born-again or not, although we can tell by the fruits. This edition is simply to present you with some frightening realities and guidelines.
The Bible indicates that those who are truly saved will be taken in the rapture and the others will be left behind.
Sin resides in the fallen self-life or soul area of the believer. Through the new-birth, the Spirit of God resides in the spirit-man of the believer, which is now one with God. The unbeliever has a fallen nature in soul and spirit.
It is only the new-birth that re-creates us as new beings, perfect in spirit. This inner perfection then works through to our soul and thinking, renewing and changing us from within, as we renew our minds daily.
God will not dwell with sin in His presence. So it is logical then that only the truly saved qualify for the rapture. That makes it exclusive, which is a reason why worldly thinking despises it.
Who is who in the zoo?
Shock and horror comes into the picture as we look at the identifying factors of whom the real church is and who it is not and why!
Proverbs 24:20 “There will be no prospect for the evil man. The lamp of the wicked will be put out.”
Psalm 10:4 “The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts.”
The most dangerous “Christians” are those who get rid of, or downplay the cross and its work in us.
Beware of the modern principles of tolerance and passivity. When you have to change the age-old tenets of scripture to make them relevant to today, you are in trouble. God convicts of sin. If you remove or change what sin is, you remove conviction and you are on the slippery slope.
Mixing the word and the world, sin and holiness is like trying to mix God and the devil.
The false church, biblically called the “harlot” church will be huge. (Revelation 17:1) The remnant church is the biblical Philadelphian church. (Revelation 3:7-13) Don’t go with the flow of the blinded masses. Set your sail into the wind.
1 John 4:1-6 “Test the spirits whether they are of God, for many false prophets have gone out...They speak of the world and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; by this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”
Proverbs 16:2 “All the ways of man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits.”
The remnant church is the “light of the world”. It is the “pillar and foundation of truth”. (1 Timothy 3:15) Once it is gone in the rapture, deep darkness immediately descends into the fallen “temple” of this world. Once the light has gone and the pillars have been removed, the false church will speedily join the multi-faith delusion with the evil powers of false prophet driving it.
Identifying the fake church
The false, counterfeit, fake church is all around us and growing fast. You will know them by their fruits, which will become manifest especially when the pressure is on.
It is possible to be exactly like a Christian, but not be one!
The nature of the counterfeit Christian church today is easily identifiable if you know where to look: ●It consists of the lukewarm and those mixed with worldliness. ●It consists of the superficial, and those who do not clearly distinguish between light and dark, truth and error. ●It consists of those with hazy doctrine. ●It consists of those who are of “another Jesus,” who are enemies of the cross of Messiah and have no cross of their own to take up. ●It consists of those who hate correction and discipline and want nothing to do with judgement. ●It consists of those with no price to pay, who don’t “count the cost” of discipleship. ●It consists of those whose main chant is “Me now,” and “I am he.” ●It consists of those who love the world and being approved by it. ●It consists of those who secretly love their sin. ●It consists of the spiritually untidy (normally seen in general untidiness too). ●It consists of those with no prayer life. ●It consists of those with no interest in evangelism. ●It consists of those who don’t forgive others. ●It consists of those who are blind to the kingdom of God, and blind to the kingdom of this world.
The counterfeit Christian hates denial of self, never talks of, or even believes in hell and judgement to come. He hates being warned and barks at the warning signs.
This “me-now” generation of Christians is the “get more” generation. It is those who have manufactured, with doctrinal support, new modern-day idols of materialism.
The churches that won’t teach or deal with current events, eschatology in particular, are either blind or a fraud. They are Christian fake-news. The avoidance of current events creates the illusion for their feel-good suckers, that everything is fine and will continue as always. (2 Peter 3:4)
The false church has no power. They think they do, but they don’t. They do have the power of deception through manipulation which they use masterfully.
What a shock many professing Christians who put their hand up in a meeting to accept the Lord, will get when the Lord says to them. “I don’t accept you, depart from me, I never knew you”! What a terrifying shock many will get when they are left behind at the rapture!
2 Peter 2 is all about the danger of false doctrine. Here are some of the headings within the chapter from my Bible: ●Destructive doctrines. ●The doom of false teachers. ●The depravity of false teachers. ●The deceptions of false teachers! Please study this chapter.
Galatians 1:8 “If we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached, let him be accursed.”
Galatians 2:5 “We did not yield submission even for an hour (to false brethren) that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.”
Jude 1:3-4 “...I am exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints, for certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men who turn the grace of God into licentiousness and deny the Lord.”
►It is important to know how Satan can bring down a Christian:
It begins with bad fellowship and its influence. Truths once held are cast aside and new modern, acceptable, tolerant and relevant “truth” comes in – all in the name of love. Then the major foundational doctrines of salvation get cast aside in favour of worldly, universal doctrines. These people then become enemies of the cross of Messiah and often end up as all-out enemies of God and His people.
The truth will set you free”, says the Bible. But the truth in the devil’s hands will bring you into bondage in the name of “truth” and freedom! Spiritual discernment is required.
The modern church makes you happy in the world, and pleased with yourself rather than having a fear of God and of your own inner potential to be your own proud god.
Unity is powerful and good, but only when it’s of God. Be careful of whom you come into unity with.
Building a new world, or even a Christian world, mans way, in unity, is just like the building of the Tower of Babel, and we know how that ended. (Genesis 11:6)
The character of the true rapture-ready, remnant church:
Knowledge of the rapture, even if it is basic, is essential for your life’s walk today.
The pre-tribulation rapture view is found predominantly (not exclusively) amongst Spirit-filled churches. This speaks volumes! What also speaks volumes is that most of the post-trib rapture believers are of the Spirit-less churches like the orthodox churches.
If you are right with God from His perspective: ●You love and exalt His word and its author the Holy Spirit. ●You receive correction and discipline easily and well. ●You walk in supernatural, sustaining power. ●You eagerly reject the word of the world and its ways. ●You see the spirits of the world clearly. ●You operate in the gifts of the Spirit as required. ●You un-questioningly receive, love and stand with God’s plans for Israel, the Jews, and Jerusalem. ●You endure hardship.
The cross must always be central. A Christian with the battle-scars of the cross on his life is safe.
The application of the cross produces death and resurrection. It kills you and raises you to newness of life. The cross kills you the great “I am.” It slays your pride. You cannot be free from inner, deadly pride without the ministry of the cross in your life.
You can tell a lot about a ministry by its alliances and affiliates. “Show you me your friends and I’ll tell you what sort of person you are.”
The godly church will be known by the quantity of Bible exposition it presents. Too many are ill-informed and ignorant of the full truth. They are churches of personal opinion.
Biblical, Spirit-led truth is a most amazing, wonderful and terrifying thing! It breaks hearts wide open and shines light inside. It softens hearts and sets them on fire with zeal, and love for God. It hardens un-surrendered hearts and shines darkness into them.
The true, safe, godly church will be known by its special place for Israel and God’s word on Israel in their ministry and lives. They will also strongly come against replacement theology.
Joel 2:15-16 “Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly...Let the bridegroom go out of his chambers and the bride from her dressing room.”
The context of the verse above is the Second Coming of the Lord and not the rapture, which would have occurred seven years before this. But note that our Lord (the bridegroom) leaves heaven to descend to earth at the Second Coming, with His bride – the church!
Assuring your salvation:
Romans 8:38-39 “I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God...”
The verse above is a comfort to all who believe. It is an assuring anchor of great security.
But note that there is one important ingredient not here, which is the item that can cause the loss of salvation. It is you yourself!
No, nothing can cause you to lose your salvation except yourself. You can throw it away, and there are many verses indicating that. But we most certainly do not drift in and out of salvation. It is absolutely safe, secure, protected and preserved, if we don’t reject it ourselves.
Hebrews 6:4-6 “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and tasted of the heavenly gift and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and tasted of the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.”
2 Peter 2:20 “If, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world, through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse than the beginning.”
Revelation 2:5 “Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.”
John 15:2-6 “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away, and every branch that bears fruit He prunes...If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they come and gather them and cast them into the fire.”
We must actively work on our salvation.
We as born-again Christians are not working for our salvation. We are working for the salvation of our soul. The word for soul is “psuche” from where the word psyche and psychology comes from. It is the realm of our thinking, personality and character.
1 Peter 1:8-9 “...Now you do not see Him, yet believing you rejoice, with joy inexpressible, and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith – the salvation of your souls.”
Romans 6:22 “Now having being set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit of holiness, and the end, everlasting life.”
When your life’s motivation is to glorify our Lord, you are on the right track.
John 7:18 “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true and no unrighteousness is in Him.”
Psalm 18:20-21 “The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands, for I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.”
Note that eternal rewards are given for holiness!
Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
I’ve said much about the importance of your thinking of late, and will continue to do so. It is so very important. It is the channel of the devil, or the fortress of God. It creates your actions, your beliefs and more. It will get you rewarded in eternity or leave you with nothing but disappearing smoke for a reward.
Think on these things:
Luke 2:35 “A sword will pierce through your own soul that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”
Jeremiah 17:9-10 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who can know it? I the Lord search the heart (thoughts). I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways and the fruit of his doings.”
Proverbs 12:5 “The thoughts of the righteous are right, but the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.”
1 Chronicles 28:9 “As for you my son Solomon, know the God of your father and serve Him with a loyal heart and a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you, but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”
To the “Christians” who thought they were saved and were not and get left behind at the rapture, it is the end of the world, but not completely so for you personally. You will still have an opportunity to repent and make right with God in the tribulation period.
That will make you a “tribulation saint,” and qualify you for the Millennium, but you will go through seven years of hell on earth, but you won’t end up in real hell.
If you throw out the opportunity in the tribulation, you will go to hell with all unbelievers.
Psalm 73:17 “When I went into the sanctuary, I understood their end...O how they are brought to desolation in a moment. They are consumed with terrors.”
Backsliders come home! Prodigal sons and daughters come home! Backsliding Israel come home, your time is running out fast!
The backslider does not lose his salvation, but he is on a deadly path.
You can lose nothing by coming to our Lord now, or put yourself in immense danger by failing to do so. Be biblically diligent with your life.
Psalm 132:4-5 “I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling place for the mighty God of Jacob.”
Psalm 139:23 “Search me O Lord and known my heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Psalm 130:6 “My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning. I say, more than those who watch for the morning.”
And at the end of the tribulation period – what a wonder:
Revelation 19:13-14 “He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called, The Word of God, and the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean followed Him on white horses.”
Psalm 73:24 “You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterwards, receive me to glory.” (Rapture)
Wisdom derived from biblical truth is a wonderful place to rest.

Shalom and grow in His Grace!
