False Spirits Are In The World

Did you know there are false prophets, ministers, pastors, teachers, deacons, friends, etc. that are in the world today?  Did you know as each day goes by, more of these evil creatures are added to their numbers?  There are many false spirits in and all over the world. These false spirits are also increasing in numbers, as the end times draw nearer and the Final Judgment draws closer.

How do you discover these ungodly, unrighteous demonic beings? As the Bible states, the only way to know if spirits are from God is to test them.  The test for true or false spirits is very simple. All you need is to have the suspected individual, who may have or be a false spirit, confess the truth, “Jesus has come in the flesh“.  If the Spirit is able to confess this fact, then the Spirit is from God.  If the spirit does not confess that Jesus has come in the flesh, they are not from God but from the unholy lord of this earth, Satan. That is all that it takes and it is really easy and simple.

Remember, as we draw nearer to the end, everying not of God is working harder to steal your salvation.  All the ungodly and unrighteous beings only purpose is to Decieve, Lie and Divide.  To seperate you from God your Father and Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior.  They want to make sure, even though they already know they cannot win, that they can sow a single seed of doubt that may actually keep someone from accepting God’s free Gift of Grace.  God’s Grace is the only way you can become righteous before God and be allowed into Heaven for an eternity!!

1 John 4:1 ESV
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4:2-3 ESV
“By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God….”

1 John 4:3 ESV
“…This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.”

As I Travel©

As I travel through my life’s journey it often seems,
Regardless of my desires, hopes and dreams,
Obstacles always appear and block my path,
Interfering with my plans & stirring my wrath.

So to what purpose or function are these distractions,
Obviously to keep me from obtaining satisfaction,
And who would be glad to see me quit and to fail,
Only one I can think of and he is the head of Hell.

I rejoice in this evil and demonic attention received,
For it tells me I have be doing as God my Father needs,
Whenever more difficulties, problems and distractions happen,
I pray to God & give thanks to Him for giving me this passion!!

Never To Late©

What do you really know,
Are you sure you’re ready to go.
Your soul is lost by a life misled,
Fire and brimestone lies ahead.
Your fate is sealed by lies & strife,
No second chances in the afterlife.
All the chances you had to repent,
You passed by without any dissent.
No need to worry or stay on track,
it’s always easier to follow the pack.
The flesh was easy to pacify,
The spirit took more to satisfy.
Why worry and lay life on the line,
Time is short & all will be fine.
But you know that it is not true,
There is only one choice left for you.
Ask for the only gift that saves,
The only way to overcome the grave.
There’s nothing to do or to give,
Jesus gave His life so we could live!!

Please©

Please God, send your angels to save me,
Is this truly all my life is meant to be.
Pain & suffering every minute of each day,
God please help me, I have lost my way.

The place you once filled is now a dark hole,
Emptyness is all I now have left to my soul.
I do not know what I did to push you away,
Please God, I need your help, save me today.

My heart is breaking and my soul aches,
Why can I not find you in that special place.
Please come back and show me what to do,
I can no longer keep on living without you.

If I fall on my knees and pray to you for relief,
Can you show me how to overcome my grief.
For all the wrongs I have even done to others,
The suffering my actions caused my sisters & brothers.

Please God, I am so hollow and feel so out of place,
How can I get my soul filled again with your grace.
I pray day & night for your love and your help,
Dear God, why can your reply no longer be felt.

What am I lacking to making myself whole,
Am I asking to much for such a sorry soul.
Must I give up all that I am to have your love,
Which path must I follow to find God above.

The darkness I feel is slowly fading away,
Now a voice I hear begins to guide my way.
It is soft and sweet, full of hope and love,
I recognize that it is from my Father above.

He tell me He has never left me for a single second,
But it was I who turned my eyes away from His presence.
For when I sin & fail to ask Him to be forgiven,
Sadly there’s no help from your God in Heaven.

(God)
For I cannot look upon any soul with a stain,
Regardless of how much I want to relieve your pain.
Please remember I will always be there for you,
No matter what you say or what you may do.

Be sure to open your heart and soul fully to me,
And I will give all my precious love I have to thee.
So when you feel empty, hollow and all alone,
Remember I am here waiting until you are home!!

Just Believe©

I was always sad and depressed,
I could never find relief or any rest.
Then when I finally accepted you,
You showed me in life what to do.
Always have faith and never worry,
Never go through life in a hurry.
God will give you all you will need,
By following His plan to succeed.
He promises you He’ll never leave,
All you need to do is just believe.

(God)
“When you’re weak, alone and scared,
Always know I will always be there.
Never worry because you are mine,
I will love you until the end of time!!”

Is There An End To The World?

Concerning the end of the world, there appears to be a strong belief by many Christians that our current world will never end.  That on or after Judgement Day, God will remake the earth to make it new again.  They believe that the current earth will always exist. That God will basically remake or renew the surface of our planet. However, this is inaccurate due to errors in translation of several popular Bibles, such as the KJV which was translated in 1614(1).   If you read current Biblical translations from the oldest original texts that are available, you can easily see these errors.  Select modern translations are more accurate due to being translated using recently discovered ancient Biblical texts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls. 

The most commonly quoted scripture from these Bibles supporting this contention that this world will never end is Ephesians 3:21, 2 Peter 3:10 and Revelation 20:11.  However, the more accurate translations states the heavens and the earth will pass away and be replaced.  That on Judgement Day, God will burn with fire everything that currently exists and replace both the heavens and the earth with new heavens and earth. This belief is supported by many other Biblical scripture in the New and Old Testament.  Some of these other passages are Hebrews 1:10-12Matthew 24:35Revelation 21:12 Peter 3:7 and Isaiah 34:4

It should be noted that some individuals also believe that the fire mentioned in the Bible in relation to these verses is nuclear fire. However, there appear to be two problems with that assumption.  First, nuclear explosion leaves scorched earth and not a new earth and secondly, any nuclear explosion can not go into the heavens.  It is confined or limited to this earth!!  Therefore a nuclear explosion could not make both the earth and heavens pass away.  Only God can do that and then replace them with a new earth and new heavens as the Bible states.

Another thought to consider is why would God give those individuals who are saved NEW immortal non-perishable (incorruptible) bodies, but not a new earth and heavens? Especially when considering this verse in Revelation.

Revelation 21:5 ESV
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

One of the strongest verses saying there will be an end to the heavens and the earth was spoken by Jesus.

Luke 21:33 ESV
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”

Jesus states that heaven and earth will pass away.  What else do you need as proof that the world we are currently living on will no longer exists at some point and then be replaced by a new world?  I think it can easily be seen in these verses presented that this world will end!!

Below are some more current Biblical verses that support this position. (emphasis mine) 

Ephesians 3:21 KJV(1)
“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

Ephesians 3:21 AEB(2)
“may He be glorified by the called ones and by the Anointed Jesus into all generations through ages of ages… may it be so!”

Ephesians 3:21 ESV
“to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

2 Peter 3:10-13 AEB(2)
“However, the Day of the Lord will come just like a thief! But then the skies will become extremely hot, their basic parts will melt, and they will pass away with a hissing noise. And thereafter, the land and everything that’s being done on it will be exposed!  So, since all these things are about to be released; what sort of people should you be when it comes to holy conduct and godliness?  Why, we’re awaiting and anticipating the appearance of the Day of the Lord, during which the skies will burn and dissolve and their basic parts will melt due to the intense heat!  For, we’re awaiting the new skies and land that He has promised, in which righteousness will dwell! “

2 Peter 3:10-13 ESV(3)
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.  Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to His promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

Revelation 20:11 AEB(2)
” Then I saw someone sitting on a huge white throne; and before him the earth and the sky just vanished and couldn’t be found.”

Revelation 20:11 ESV(3)
“Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence the earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.

Hebrews 1:10-12 AEB(2)
“And, ‘In the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth, and [you] made the heavens with your hands.  But they’ll pass away while you still remain; for like clothes, they will grow old.”

1 Corinthians 7:31 ESV(3)
“… For the present form of this world is passing away.”

Hebrews 1:10-12 ESV(3)
And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands;  they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment”

Matthew 24:35 AEB(2)
“Though the skies and the lands may all pass away, my words will not pass away!”

Matthew 24:35 ESV(3)
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away”.”

Revelation 21:1 AEB(2)
“Then I saw a new sky and new lands, because the previous sky and lands had disappeared, as had the sea.”

Revelation 21:1 ESV(3)
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.”

2 Peter 3:7 AEB(2)
“So it’s by this same word that what’s in store for the skies and the land is the fire that [will come to them] in the Judgment Day, when those godless men will be destroyed.”

2 Peter 3:7 ESV(3)
“But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.”

Isaiah 34:4 AEB(2)
Then the powers of the heavens will melt; 
The sky will be wrapped like a scroll, 
And all the stars will then fall
Like the leaves of a grapevine or fig tree.”

Isaiah 34:4 ESV(3)
“All the host of heaven shall rot away, and the skies roll up like a scroll. All their host shall fall, as leaves fall from the vine, like leaves falling from the fig tree.”

Make No Plans For The Future

The Bible covers everything that you need to know in and about life. There is not a subject that is not covered, including the proper way to look at life and the future.

Based on the verses below, it is easy to see that God wants us to live for today and not be concerned or worry about the future.  This includes everything that concerns your life here on earth, including saving money.  If you have truly submitted and given your life to Jesus, God is now responsible for you.  If we have faith, He will provide you with everything you need for the day. This ‘everything’ is all He sees you need and NOT what you think or believe you need.  God wants to care for you and He wants you to trust Him in everything.  All you have to do is have the faith and give God the opportunity to do as He has promised.  Remember that God also promises to never leave you or forsake you.  Once you have given yourself completely to God, He will never leave you, forget you or decide not to keep any of His promises.  The only way God will not care for you is if you turn your back on God and reject Him outright!!

Mathew 6:31-34 ESV
“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’or ‘What shall we drink?’or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Romans 13:14 AEB
“Rather, we should put on the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and not plan ahead [to satisfy] the cravings of the flesh.”

Hebrew 13:5
“… and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
