DELIVERY BIBLE PARABLES
A STRANGE THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY ...
was your ordinary, average guy. While he was growing up, his foster parents never
were the church going type and so, neither was Thomas. He had never read the
Bible either and to tell you the truth, he never even really thought about God.
He had no knowledge of the Christian lifestyle.
One weekend, he was in New York City to
be the best man at his friend Charlie’s wedding. Charlie had moved to the Big
Apple a year and a half earlier and they hadn’t seen each other since Christmas,
when Charlie came home to Kansas to visit. Thomas never was any good at
directions, and being lost in New York City, can be a very trying experience. He
had gotten off the plane and into his rental car 3 and a half hours ago and
spent the entire time, backtracking his way trying to figure out where he made a
He decided that this was a waste of
time, so he took the next exit off of the expressway to try and find a
convenience store with a map. It would definitely be better than the directions
Charlie had given to him, which Thomas wrote on a napkin. Being from Kansas,
Thomas was unaware that there are some pretty dangerous neighborhoods in the big
cities. Thomas didn’t know that he was right smack dab in the middle of the
roughest neighborhood in New York City.
At the next stop light, he looked
over and saw several men standing against a corner building. Thomas decided that
he should ask these people for directions to a convenience store, since they
were obviously from this area. They told him that the building that they were
standing at, was indeed a convenience store and this store sold maps that would
help him find his way. Thomas, feeling quite relieved, thanked the men and then
pulled over, got out of his car and walked into the old building. As he
approached the glass doors, he noticed it was dark inside. “This store looks
closed and maybe even deserted,” he thought to himself.
Thomas felt almost
paralyzed with fear as he saw, in the reflection of the glass doors, himself
surrounded by the several men who had given him the advice. One of the men
punched Thomas in the stomach and as he keeled over they picked him up, threw
him in Thomas’ car and sped off to an abandoned warehouse, not too far from
where they had kidnapped him. They dragged him out of the car and took him
inside where they continued to beat him and kick him repeatedly. They stripped
him of his his watch, wallet and jewelry. Going through his wallet and taking
out his driver’s license one of the men noticed that he was form Kansas
and said ‘Hey Dorothy, you’re not in Kansas anymore" ... All of the men then
broke out into hysterical laughter. Then one of them, which appeared to be the
gang leader yelled out “TAKE NO PRISONERS! And LEAVE NO WITNESSES!” As Thomas
was laying there curled up in a ball, bleeding and moaning in pain, he knew
right then and there that he was going to die.
never felt that feeling before, that feeling of complete powerlessness. The
feeling of how he didn’t have any control over what he was doing and no control
over his own life.
Suddenly, Thomas found himself praying. He didn’t even know how to pray or what
he should be saying but out of some sort of deep instinct, he said, “Oh God, oh
Lord, Jesus please help me.” At that very moment the lights came on,
in that abandoned warehouse, and he heard a very loud, almost deafening, and
commanding voice say “What’s going on in here?” The voice came from behind him.
Thomas looked up and saw his attackers running away very quickly. They were
scattering away like roaches when the lights come on.
then looked back to see who it was that had assuredly saved his life, but he
found himself alone. How could that be? Only a few seconds had passed, since the
voice yelled out. He looked around and saw all of his belongings,
including his jewelry and car keys were at his side. He got up, got dressed and
got out of there as quickly as he could and though he was injured from the
punishment he endured at the hands of his attackers, he felt no pain. He only
felt indebted and extremely grateful to whoever had saved his life.
never saw the man who saved him from certain death that fateful afternoon.
Thomas is not even sure that there was a MAN, there that day. All he knew was
that he was about to die and yet he is alive, even to this very day. Since then,
Thomas prays everyday, even though he hasn’t been in a life threatening
situation like that afternoon, he still prays anyway. Thomas knows now
what he never did know before that day. There is a God and He has a Son named
Jesus Christ. Thomas has read the Bible many times since then and often
frequents a Church that he has found. He truly knows this one thing,
without a shadow of a doubt …
The Bible gives us many examples on ways we can pray. Pray in secret and God
will reward us openly, Pray 3 times a day, Pray towards the east, Pray towards
Heaven, do not Pray in vain repetition, Forgive all others before we begin to
Pray, Pray faithfully, Pray constantly, Pray in Jesus Name, Invite the Holy
Spirit to Pray with us and for us and many many more. All we need to do is just
Pray and the rest will come naturally.
There was once a 9 year old named Billy. Little Billy had a BIG problem. He was
caught stealing money from his Dad’s wallet, one morning. Before his Dad found
out, little Billy had already taken hundreds of dollars. His Dad demanded that
Billy pay him back every penny of it or he was going to remove Billy from his
will and from taking
over the family fortune, when he was old enough to do so. Billy fell to his
knees crying in repentance and begged his Dad to forgive him and to give him a
second chance. He promised that he would never do anything like that again.
His Dad felt an overwhelming amount of love and compassion for his son and he
forgave him and forgot about the debt that little Billy owed. Years later Billy
grew up and took over the family fortune and Billy himself, had a son named
Johnny. At the age of 9 little Johnny had a BIG problem. He was caught taking
money out of Billy’s wallet. When Billy found out about it he was furious. He
demanded the money be paid back to him immediately or else he would remove
little Johnny from taking over the family fortune. Little Johnny begged and
pleaded with his Dad, but Billy had no compassion for his son and refused to
forgive him. He told Johnny that he was ashamed of him and that he would never
let a thief take over his family fortune. Little Johnny was very upset and he
called his grandpa to explain the situation. Remembering the same incident had
happened with his son Billy, Grandpa became VERY angry and took the family
fortune out of the hands of Billy and gave it to little Johnny. He told Billy
that both he and Johnny were guilty of committing the same crime and since he
was forgiven he should have forgiven Johnny as well. But, that since he refused
to forgive ... He had lost his fortune because He would not have a man who
refuses to forgive, take over the family fortune.
In the Bible it states that in order for you to be forgiven of your sins, you
must forgive all others their sins against you. It states that the Lord will
deliver that unforgiving individual to the tormentors of Hell, if you choose not
to forgive everyone from your heart.
(Luke 16: 19-31)
There was once a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus who came to this rich mans
front gate daily begging for crumbs from the rich mans table. But daily he was
turned away. After many years passed, Lazarus died and the Angels came down and
took his soul to Paradise, also known as Abraham’s bosom. Soon thereafter, the
rich man died as well but his soul was taken to Hell.
Now, when the rich man arrived in
Hell, he looked over and saw Abraham with Lazarus being comforted in Paradise
He begged Abraham for Lazarus to dip his finger in water and to allow just one
drop of water, to drip onto his tongue. For there is no water in hell. The rich
man was then told by Abraham, that his life was good while on earth, but
Lazarus’ life was bad and filled with suffering. Now he is comforted and yours
is full of suffering and torment because you did not help him who was suffering
when you were more than able too.
But what is Hell? Let’s
find out together.
Hell is a place of darkness with heat, fire, thirst, torture, pain, weeping and
gnashing of teeth. The Bible says that the worms of hell eat the souls of the
damned and that their fire never dies. A popular young visionist described the
souls in Hell, as popping around, in the same way that popcorn pops around when
being cooked. Hell is always enlarging her entrance and is never full. That all
sounds extremely horrible, but the worst part of Hell is the absence of God. Not
only would all the pain and torture be excruciating but on top of that, the
emptiness inside the soul without God’s Love would be totally unbearable. After
the battle of Armageddon, that old dragon, satan, will be in Hell, chained down
for 1000 years. After the 1000 years in hell, those who will be judged for the
second death will go along with satan and be put into the Lake Of Fire ...
Forever. Jesus tells us that Hell and Paradise can be seen be into from either
side, but there is a great divide between the two places, so that no souls can
pass from one side, to the other.
So, as you can see, Hell is not a nice place to be. Remember though, it is God’s
love for us and His desire for us to know and believe what Jesus Christ did for
us all that will save us. Jesus is not intending to scare us with this story
into doing the right thing but is only warning us. He just wants us to know what
the alternative is, if anyone chooses to reject His Love for us. Remember, even
the gates of Hell will never prevail against those who believe and follow the
Lord Jesus Christ. Choose Jesus ... The best Eternal Life Policy ... Money
LOVE THY NEIGHBOR
(Matt. 5-7 ---Matt.
was a man, that we will call Mr. Smith, who was
sitting in Church with his wife. He had just
dozed off, during the pastor’s sermon, when he
awoke to the sound of the collection plate coming
around. He watched as the people next to him put
in what they could afford, which was very little.
When the collection plate reached him, he cleared
his throat very loud, as to gain the attention of
those around him, and put a hundred dollar bill
into the collection plate. When Church was over, he was
edging his way through the crowd towards the
front door and saw a statue of Jesus. He thought
to himself, "he needs a haircut and a
the way to his favorite brunch restaurant, he was coming upon
a stoplight and saw one of THOSE people. You
know, the ones with a sign that says "will
work for food" ... This guy had long hair, a
beard and very dirty, worn out clothing. As he
came to a stop, Mr. Smith rolled up the electric
windows in his Cadillac and turned his head away
from the poor looking man who was now just outside his
window, with his hand stretched out towards Mr.
Smith. After what seemed like forever, to Mr.
Smith, the stoplight turned green and before Mr.
Smith pulled off, He rolled down the window and
ya bum ... get a job"
and then sped off laughing.
few years later, Mr. Smith died of cancer and
ended up at God’s Judgment seat. Jesus asked Mr.
Smith why it was that he thought he was worthy to
get into Heaven. Mr. Smith said proudly that he
donated a hundred dollars every time his wife
could drag him to Church. Jesus asked if that was
the only reason and Mr. Smith said, "Yes, of
course, I paid for my way in" ...
looked at Mr. Smith and said ... You failed to
have compassion and love for your fellow man,
when the opportunity arose. You are greedy and
selfish and are not worthy to enter Heaven. Mr.
Smith, convicted by Jesus’ words, turned and
started walking away with his head hung low. Then
Jesus said ... And, by the way Mr. Smith ...
am no bum, and I DO have a JOB.
THE PRODIGAL SON
Jesus told many parables;
Each one has a secret meaning for you to figure out.
parable is called the Prodigal Son.
There was once a man who had two sons. When the father was to die, the two sons
would share his inheritance. However, the younger son wanted his portion early.
So his father gave it to him as he requested and the youngest son left home and
traveled into a far country. While there, he spent his money right and left
partying with wild women and his newfound friends. But, not long afterwards he
was broke and all his new friends left as quickly as they arrived. The young man
began to starve and so he found a job working for a pig farmer. He was so hungry
he was willing to eat what the pigs were eating and yet no one gave him
Finally, he came
to his senses and realized what he had done was foolish. He thought to himself,
“even my father’s servants have plenty to eat. I will go home and beg my father
to let me be one of his servants.” And as he was still quite a distance from his
father’s house, his father looked up and saw him walking down the road and the
father ran to his youngest son and hugged him and welcomed him home. The son was
taken back by his father’s show of affection. He fell to his knees and said “But
father, I have sinned against Heaven and you. I am no longer worthy to be called
your son.” Even so, the father called for some of his servants and told them “go
and dress my son with the finest clothes, put rings on his hands and shoes on
his feet and kill the fatted calf for we shall celebrate with a feast.”
the older son was out working in the fields, when he heard the sound of music
and laughter. He called one of the servants and asked him what was going on at
his father’s house. The servant replied, “Your younger brother has returned home
and your father is celebrating his return with a feast.” Upon hearing this, the
older brother became very angry. Stubbornly, he refused to come in from the
fields. Once his father heard of this he went out to the field and asked his son
to come to the feast. The older brother replied. “I have loyally served you all
these years, I have always done what you said yet you have never even given me
so much as a goat to feast on with my friends. Yet my brother goes and spends
half of all your money on a riotous living and returns home and you kill the
fatted calf and throw a party for him.” The father replied, “My son, you are
always with me and what I have is yours, yet it is right to celebrate your
brothers return, for he was dead and is alive again. He was lost and now is
secret meaning to this parable is that God desires all of His children to come
back home to Him, no matter how bad they have been. And when you do, there will
be a celebration in Heaven for the Angels of God are happier when the one sheep
that wandered away ... returns.
return to God, your Father and He will ... Run to you.
THE WOMAN IN THE WILDERNESS
Sarah’s husband died prior to her last child’s
birth. She couldn’t afford pre-natal care, so when the time came she had to take
the Doctor which was on call … Dr. Santana. Unknown to Sarah, Dr. Santana would
take the infants of the poor people, kill them, and sell their organs to the
parents of wealthy infants with medical problems. The doctor would claim that
the poor infant died of natural causes.
During the delivery, he put Sarah
to sleep and then took the infant and began to smother it with a pillow. About
this time, Sarah came too and saw the whole thing ... The shock from what she
saw, as well as the drugs he gave her, made her pass out again. Suddenly, there
was a knock at the door. The doctor stopped what he was doing and went to the
To his surprise
there was no one there. He shut and locked the door and when he turned back to
the table where the infant was, he couldn’t believe his eyes. The infant was not
there. In a panic, he looked all over that room, but the infant was nowhere to
be found. He knew that Sarah couldn’t have moved or hidden the child, because
she was in a deep sleep. A few hours later, when Sarah woke up, the doctor had
one of his nurses tell Sarah that her infant had died shortly after birth,
because he could not explain the child’s
released Sarah from the hospital. Sarah went to the police and
told them everything that she had seen. They investigated the crime and arrested
Dr. Santana because he could not produce the infants’ body. Sarah was placed in
the witness protection program and held in a secret wilderness cabin until the
trial which was 3 ½ months later, because Dr. Satana was the leader of a Cult.
Dr. Santana posted his bail immediately and went frantically searching for the
woman because he knew that she had witnessed everything that had happened. He
searched for her the entire time, but to no avail. After the 3 ½ months were up,
Dr. Santana was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death.
Book of Revelation Chapter 12, it tells the story of a woman who is with child.
After she gives birth to this man child the child is taken up to God and to His
throne. The woman then flees into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by
God for 3 ½ years. There was then a war in Heaven. Michael and his angels fought
against the devil and his angels and Michael prevailed and satan’s
place was no longer found in Heaven and he was cast out along with all of his
angels. And a loud voice proclaimed now has come salvation, strength, the
Kingdom of God and the Power of His Christ for satan the accuser of our brethren
is cast down which accused us day and night. And they overcame him by the blood
of the lamb and the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto
Rejoice oh Heavens and you who dwell in them but woe unto
you on earth and sea, for the devil is come unto you with wrath for he knows his
time is short.
When the devil saw that he was cast unto earth, he persecuted the woman which
did bear the man child. But the woman was hidden and taken care of and nourished
by God in a place in the wilderness for 3 and ½ years. So the devil seeing that
he could not hurt the woman went to make war with the remnant of her seed which
keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ ... The
But, who is this
woman ... Who is the child ... And who are the remnant of her seed?
The woman is Israel.
man child that she gives birth to represents the Christians that are taken up in
the first Rapture. For Christianity was born of and sprung forth out of the
Jewish people. Then the believing Israelites will be hidden in the wilderness.
The remnant of her seed are those who are left behind and are believers in
Jesus. And satan, through his reign of terror of his antichrist, will be at war
with the saints until the 3 and a half year time period is over and Jesus comes
back to redeem the earth in full.
(Revelation 11 /
High School is a madhouse. Murder, drugs, sex and rebellion are the topics. The
red dragons and their gang leader Andy Chris have taken over the school. Even
the teachers are influenced by him. But Principal Jay Hova still loves His
students and some of them had not been influenced by the gang. So the Principal
brought in 2 teachers. He gave them power and authority over the whole school to
convert or disciplines as they saw fit. He also gave them bodyguards to protect
them for 3 ½ months. These teachers warned the students so much so that the
majority of the school hated them and wanted them dead. Many tried to kill them
but the bodyguards would kill the attackers before they could. The students
accused the 2 men of torturing them because they cut off the electricity, water
and even removed food from the cafeteria anything to get their attention to
prevent them from ruining their young lives. Finally their job was done and Andy
Chris shot the 2 men. Most of the students celebrated and danced on their
bodies. After 3 ½ hours of laying unconscious they stood up with their bullet
proof vests and walked away.
In Revelation Chapter 11, it tells of 2 Prophets of God known as the 2
witnesses. During antichrists 3 ½ year reign of terror these 2 men will be
warning the world of Gods wrath and preaching of Jesus. They will have power to
stop the rain, cast plagues and turn water in to blood. Anybody who tries to
hurt them will be killed in the same manner. After 3 ½ years antichrist will
kill them and the world will celebrate. But after 3 ½ days God will give them
life and they will rise to Heaven. These 2 witnesses are coming in the near
future. They are not here to torment mankind but to save them. Believe in Jesus
to be saved.
360 DAY SIGN
There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, 7
days in a week, 4 weeks in a month and 12 months in a year. There are also 365
days in a year. But how many days are in a Jewish year?
At the beginning and end of the Bible it shows that there are only 360
days in a Jewish year. You will see that in Genesis Chapters 7 & 8 it says that
on the 17th day of the 2nd month, the flood started. 150
days later on the 17th day of the 7th month Noah and his
family landed on Mt. Ararat. This shows that it had been 5 months. 150 days
divided by 5 months equals 30 days in a month. 30 days times 12 months equals
360 days in a year. In Revelation Chapters 12 & 13 it says that 42 months is
1,260 days. So if you divide 1,260 days by 42 months you come up with the answer
30 days in a month. 30 days times 12 months equals 360 days a year. So as you
can see, God is showing all through the Bible that there was, is and always
going to be 360 days in a Jewish year. But why is all of this even important?
The reason why is that many scholars tried to find out when the approximate time
a certain event occurred. The reason why their dates are so scrambled is because
they base their theories on a 365 day a year period. That’s why so many of them
have their different opinions on when the end will be. But if you go by 360 days
in a year, you will find the end in the year 2000.

Since time began there has always been a man who wanted to conquer the world
such as Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Genghis Khan, Stalin, Adolph Hitler and
even Saddam Hussein. All of these leaders have one thing in common… they are all
But there is one coming that will devastate the world. His name is
antichrist. He is one of 7 past evil kings brought back to life by satan. He
overtakes 3 of a 10 unit empire and then controls all 10. He reigns terror 3 ½
years. He makes war with the saints and prevails over many. He speaks against
God, sits in the Temple of God and claims to be God. Antichrist has an ally
called the False Prophet. He causes those that dwell on the earth to make an
image of the antichrist and has the power to give life unto the image so that it
speaks and causes all that does not worship the image to be put to death. He
causes all both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark
in the right hand or in their foreheads. And no man will be able to buy or sell
without either the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name and
his number is Six hundred threescore and six. The antichrist also kills the 2
witnesses and goes up against Jesus at Armageddon and he loses quickly and
decidedly by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Many people will be blinded and
they will take the mark of the beast and worship his image because they received
not the love of the truth that they might be saved,
so God sent them a strong delusion that they should believe a lie that they
might all be damned because they took pleasure in unrighteousness. Once again
those who take the mark of the beast and worship him and/or his image will be
cast into the lake of fire forever and ever. So whatever you do NOT do that.
All of the past world rulers have come and gone and though the
antichrist has magic and tricky deceptions and he is more powerful then the past
evil rulers he will come and go to. You can choose to follow him for 3 ½ years
on earth and then join him to burn forever or you can follow the real world
leader. Jesus Christ. And He will rule forever world without end. Amen

8:9 and 8:23-25 ...
Have you ever read about or known anyone who was offended or even
killed for their beliefs? Can you imagine how they felt?
There was once a time for real when the Jewish people were not allowed
to read their Bibles, worship or even pray to God. This occurred approx. 160 BC
when a cruel and evil king took over Jerusalem. His name was Antiochus Epiphanes.
In the future a cruel king will do the same thing except this time he will do it
to the whole world. His name will be the antichrist. The Bible shows us many
similarities between the two. Antiochus is one of the 7 past evil kings that
have oppressed Israel in the past. Antichrist will be one of the same 7 past
evil kings brought back to life by satan. Antiochus in the past defiled Gods Temple.
Antichrist will defile Gods Temple in the future. Antiochus persecuted the
saints. Antichrist will persecute the saints. Antiochus uses peace as a weapon.
Antichrist will use peace as a weapon. Antiochus is known in the book of Daniel
as the little horn. Antichrist is known in the book of revelation as the little
horn; Antiochus claimed that he was God. Antichrist will claim to be God.
Antiochus reigned terror for 3 ½ years. Antichrist will reign terror for 3 ½
years Antiochus…Antichrist… even their names are similar. How many people do you
know whose name starts with A-N-T-I, that is and will be an evil king that will
persecute Gods people?
During antichrists reign the freedom of religion will be non-existent. He
will demand that you worship him and him only. At that time and only then will
people know how the Jewish people felt during Antiochus reign. Remember… Believe
in Jesus to be saved…
Chapter 18 ...
Wars… There have been
some doozies in our past. WW1, WW2, Vietnam even the Civil war just to name a
few. Veterans young and old alike still argue over which one was worst. I would
like to tell you about a war coming very soon that will be the war to end all
Babylon, that great city, will fall. In just 1 hour all of her riches will be
destroyed because she caused men to sin. Her plagues will come upon her in 1 day
by the 10 kings of Antichrists Empire. Many will stay away for fear of the
torment that will be inflicted upon her. After Babylon falls, those in Heaven
will Praise God for bringing judgment upon the great whore Babylon. Then the
marriage supper of the Lamb will occur. His wife will have made herself ready.
Then it will be time for the final battle. The Battle of Armageddon. When Jesus
is revealed He will punish those on earth who knew not God nor obeyed His
Gospel. Jesus will descend from Heaven upon His white horse followed by His army
of saints dressed in linen clean and white. With a sharp sword that proceeds out
of His mouth He will smite the nations and rule them with a rod of iron. The
antichrist and false prophet were both cast alive into a lake of fire burning
with brimstone. Jesus will slay the remnant of the nations with His sword. An
Angel tells all the birds to come to the supper of the great God and to eat all
the flesh of kings and of the men both great and small. The birds were filled to
the brim with the flesh of evil men. Satan is bound with chains and thrown into
the bottomless pit for 1000 years.
As you can see this final
war will make the wars of the past look like child’s play. It will be a very
bloody war but it will also be very quick and extremely one-sided. Make sure you
choose the right side because choosing the wrong side won’t leave you as a POW.
But instead… a prisoner of hell.
Believe in the Lord Jesus to be Saved and to
catch a ride on the WINNING side.
DIVIDED WE FALL
Rebecca was crying alone in her room. Her parents were fighting
again. It was not always like this. They used to do things together. But things
have changed. Mom and Dad both have careers now. They were always gone and when
they were together they would fight. One morning Rebecca woke up to yet another
argument. They went off to work without even saying good bye. She could not take
it anymore. She went into her parents’ room and grabbed her daddy’s gun. She put
it to her head and with tears streaming down her face. She pulled the trigger.
We are all often asked what denomination we are. Catholic,
Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal. Etc. The Bible says that if you
believe in Jesus, you are one with other believers. This IS the Church. Though
God gives us different assignments to strengthen the Church we are still one
Body. The Church has been divided because of mans differences and their
interpretation of the Bible. Some add to the Bible. Some take away. Some take it
out of context. Interpretation of Gods word comes from God. The Bible clearly
says that we must believe, follow and love the Lord and to love each other. If
we stand as one, not even the gates of hell can
stand against us.
Because of their selfishness Rebecca’s parents divided their family
which drove Rebecca to self destruction. Rebecca represents Gods lost children.
Her parents represent the divisions in the Church. These divisions are causing
Gods lost children to self destruct because like Jesus pointed out to the
Pharisees, too many of the present day Preachers and Teachers are making it too
hard to enter. (Matthew 23:13) It is hard enough these days, with all of the
temptations to become and stay Christians. They do not need a bunch of different
interpretations confusing them; inevitably they depart from the faith which
GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT
There was a man named Tom. He had it all. Boats, cars and a large
home. Tom was full of good works though. He fed the poor and gave money to
charity. One day a man came to his door and told Tom that if he would accept
Jesus as his Savior that he would go to Heaven. Tom replied, “You are crazy, I
have a place in Heaven.” The next day, Tom died of a heart attack. Did he go to
Heaven??? We shall see.
First let’s talk about Gods Judgment. After the people have enjoyed
1000 years of peace on earth with Jesus, satan will be loosed from the
bottomless pit as written. During his short season out of the pit, he gathers
Magog and all those who chose to defy Jesus to battle. But before they even
reach the gates of Jerusalem, God will send a fire down from Heaven and destroy
them. Satan will be thrown down into the lake of fire where the antichrist and
false prophet already reside. At this time all souls on earth and in the sea
even those in hell will be brought up to await judgment by God. This event is
known as the great white throne Judgment. Those that were with Jesus will not be
affected by this Judgment. But those that are not written in the book of life
will be cast into the Lake of Fire
where they are tormented day and night forever. This is known as the second
Remember Tom??? He was in the Judgment that I spoke of but
his name was not in the book of life. His works were not good enough. Tom asked
God… “Why?” God said, ‘Tom, I sent my only Son to earth to die for all mankind’s
sins because their works could not cover their sins. I gave you a chance to be
with me but you said no. Your fate is the lake of fire… Depart from me”. So, if
you are like Tom and you think that your good works are good enough to get you
into Heaven… Better think again. For the only way to Heaven is by accepting
Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH
(Revelation Chapter 21
... Revelation 22)
What has happened to our
beautiful planet? Pollution, deforestation, global warming, littering and even
graffiti. This place is a mess. Even here in Austin our pride and joy are our
lakes. Have you seen Town Lake
lately? Wouldn’t you like to live in a world where you can eat the fish out of
the lake and swim without the worry of being plagued or poisoned? Soon, God will
do a strange act and destroy the earth with fire and then create a new Heaven
and a new Earth There will be no oceans and a new Holy city called New Jerusalem
comes down from Heaven. God will live with mankind, no death no pain no fear.
This city will be made of precious stones. There will be neither sun nor moon.
God’s light will illuminate the world. There will be no more night time and a
river of life will flow out from the Temple of God.
A tree of life with 12 kinds of fruit upon it whose leaves will heal will be in
the city. It will be the most beautiful thing that you have ever imagined.
Remember in the movie the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy’s house landed in Oz and the
picture was black and white? But once she opened her door the picture was in
color. That is the type of change that we can expect in the future. But there
will be only one difference; you will NEVER want to go home.
POINT OF NO RETURN
(Hebrews 6:4-6) (Mark 3:23-29)
Brenda was walking home from school one day when a car pulled up to
her. A man jumped out, grabbed her and threw her into his car. He kept her
locked up in his house. He drugged, raped and beat her. As time went on, she
began to change. She became dependent on this man and she even began to like
what he was doing to her. But deep down inside, she wanted to get out.
Even though it had been years since his daughter had been kidnapped. Her dad was
still looking for her. One day she went to the store with her kidnapper but she
waited outside for him because of her bruises. A private detective sent from her
dad walked up to her and explained who he was. She went with him and her father
was extremely happy to see her. She too was glad to be home. But as time went
on, Brenda began to miss her old lifestyle that she shared with her kidnapper.
She even flirted around with the idea of going back to him. What do you think
would happen to her if she actually went back?
Like Brenda we all have been kidnapped from God by the
world’s temptations. But God sends His prophets out to preach the Gospel to save
people from their own self destruction. Once they are saved and are back home
with God, satan tries everything he can to get them back. Considering leaving
God and going back to your old ways is a sin. But actually leaving God is an
unforgivable sin. You blaspheme the Holy Spirit and crucify Jesus again. It
would have been better to have not even known Jesus than to return to your
wicked ways after following Him. The punishment is eternal death with satan in
the lake of fire.
Brenda did decide to go back to her kidnapper. But… it sure wasn’t
what she was expecting. He was furious that she had left. In fact he was so
furious that he poured gasoline on her and lit her up. Believe in Jesus to
be saved and faint not. Fight the good fight unto death for in our patience we
possess our souls.
17:36 ... 1Corinthians 15:51-54
... Revelation 10:7)
ever been in a situation where you were in trouble and you wished you could just
disappear? Kind of like Captain Kirk on Star Trek. When he was in trouble and
needed to escape quickly, he would just say, “Beam me up Scotty!” And right on
time when the enemy was approaching he would be transported up to the safety of
his ship. Wouldn’t it be awesome if this could really happen??? It Will ...
In the terrifying days of Tribulation that will come very soon, Jesus
will send His Angels to remove the good people from the horrors that will be
occurring here on earth. Just as God the Father did with Noah and Lot. The Bible says that there will be 2 men in a field. In the blink of
an eye one will vanish…one will remain. These people will rise into the air to
meet Jesus and become immortal. Everyone knows this will occur. The big question
on all our minds is WHEN??? Jesus said it will occur after the tribulation of
those days. Many other places in the Bible also say it will occur at the last
trumpet. By the time the last Trumpet sounds, events occurring on the earth will
be extremely frightening.
Imagine the earth at this time after the disasters, famines and wars.
Then suddenly millions of people will disappear. The mass hysteria of missing
children, wives and husbands. Not to mention the traffic jams. What a RUSH hour
that will be huh? If you believe in Jesus and follow Him you too can be beamed
up like Captain Kirk was. Just read Gods Captains log which is the Bible. With
Jesus Christ as your Captain, you will truly go where NO man has gone before.
