JESUS IS MY BOSS

The following is a tract I wrote.
If you do not like something in it or just feel it is lacking please let me know
My email is at the end of the tract.
If you like it and feel a lost person could understand it, then you may have it.
It prints on 3 pages, of course reformatting and editing can make it shorter. I fold it and put it in an envelope.

JESUS IS MY BOSS

Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

AND HE WANTS ME TO GIVE YOU THIS TRACT

Matthew 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen

Are you a sinner without God with no hope in the world? Do you love this world and all it offers in pleasure and comforts? You don’t understand Christians and feel uncomfortable around them. Maybe you think them hypocrites, but has it ever occurred to you that they are going to heaven and you are going to hell. Heaven is a 24/7 church service and that in itself would be a form of hell for you. That is exactly how I once felt.

You need to be born again, saved, a new creation

John 3:3,6

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

6,That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

Romans 8:5-9 tells us that we need to be born again or else we
cannot please God

Romans 8:5-9 “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally” [WORLDLY] “minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.”

John 3:36

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

BORN AGAIN: Have you ever wanted to relive your life. Have you ever wondered how it would turn out? Of course, you can’t do that physically but you can do that spiritually. Being born again spiritually is like being born again physically. You will grow to LOVE Jesus, the Church, Christians and the Bible.

To be BORN AGAIN YOU NEED TO KNOW FOUR THINGS:

FIRST, you are a sinner “alienated, (separated), from God.

Colossians 1:21 “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled.”

SECOND, you WILL go to HELL if you aren’t “BORN AGAIN”.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Jesus also said,

Mark 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Mar 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Mar 9:45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Mar 9:46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Mar 9:47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
Mar 9:48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

AND

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

THE THIRD THING YOU MUST KNOW is that YOU CAN’T DO IT. That’s why Jesus came and died upon the cross. CHRIST DIED FOR YOU.

Romans 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
If you are an ungodly person without strength to do right then you meet one of the requirements, for salvation. We are all guilty. We are all sinners, rebels doing things our way. It is just that you must admit it to qualify.

Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth [proved] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Rom 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

FOURTH, IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE A HELL BOUND SINNER AND YOU WANT TO REPENT AND BE BORN AGAIN. ROMANS CHAPTER TEN TELLS YOU HOW

Romans 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

You must call upon God in prayer.

Right now, as best as you can, admit to God that you are a hell bound sinner and deserving of Hell. But you are trusting in Jesus and what He did on the cross to save you and make you into a new person. A person who will love heavenly things. Be honest in your prayer and God will bless you beyond your imagination. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Now it is important for you to find a King James Bible preaching church. After the preaching when the alter call is given, as a public testimony, you should walk the aisle and tell the pastor what you did. Then baptism. Then grow in grace. 2nd Peter 3:8

CREATION OR THEISTIC EVOLUTION???

I said last time that I was going to do a “2014 year in review” but it is a much greater time consuming job then I had thought. I do not want to just regurgitate facts but make them interesting by comment and Bible verses. So, for now, I am recanting on that.

CREATION OR THEISTIC EVOLUTION???

Does it really make any difference what someone believes as long as God gets some credit for doing it? I suppose that would depend on your view of God. I figure there are many who have not thought the whole thing out. They have been taught that evolution is true beyond any doubt, and they have just accepted that.

What is theistic evolution?

It is the teaching that a Christian can believe Darwinian evolution, that we are the offspring of a frog that evolved into a monkey that became a human being, or as it is in a fairy tale, Prince kisses frog and BAM the frog becomes a beautiful queen, evolution just removes the bam and inserts a few million years in its place.

For information on creation and why it makes sense to reject evolution read my blog on it at,            http://donoterr.wordpress.com/creation/

Darwin got the whole atheistic evolution thing going when he published “Origin of Species” on November 24, 1859. Before that the only answer to the question, “how did we get here?” was God. There was no other credible answer. But Darwin changed all of that. Now the answer is evolution.

Atheist were thrilled as well as other reprobates as they now had something to build their FAITH ON. Yup “faith”, evolution is now a religion taught and practiced by all government funded educational institutes, some have a higher priority than others but all believe it and teach it. In fact creationism has been classified as a Christian myth that only uneducated ignoramuses believe. That be me. And I might be stupid but I am not crazy enough to label God a liar.

I wrote that it takes faith to believe in evolution because no one knows for sure if it is true. Regardless of what they teach, evolution is only a hypothesis, at best. And for those who believe God, evolution is not only a lie but a satanic doctrine that is destroying the fabric of what the American flag stands for, and corrupting it with the pleasures of sin, in the disguise of toleration. As Christians we must NEVER TOLERATE anything God has condemned in Scripture. We must always hate the sin BUT LOVE THE SINNER BECAUSE Jesus loves him and wants to see him/her saved and living a Christian life.

THE REDEEMED SHOULD HATE THE TEACHING OF EVOLUTION AND FIGHT IT EVERY CHANCE WE GET.

Bible proof for rejecting evolution is found in Romans chapter one verse 23 but read all the following verses and the rest of the chapter on your own. The thing to notice is that when a country rejects creationism for evolution “God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:”

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God [the King James Bible] into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

God turns those who accept evolution over to homosexuality. Which today is a rite of entrance into a tolerant society that will put up with anything except the Lord Jesus Christ.

After Darwin published his “Origin of Species” many theologians bought into it. And many clergymen started teaching theistic evolution. Promoting a theology of an indirect creation. That it was okay to agree with science and today theistic evolution is a popular doctrine, as it seemed to bridge the gap between the question “How did man get here?” God still did it only by indirect means. POPPYCOCK

Let me caution you about Christian instincts to make God look good and just to the world. STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR GOD. JUST BELIEVE THE BIBLE  and learn it so you can teach it to others.  THAT IS EVERY BLOOD PURCHASED, BORN AGAIN, DISCIPLE OF THE LORD JESUS DUTY.

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Most Americans are now, today, dues paying members of the atheistic evolution club. I don’t even think they realize that they are atheistic in thought, word and deed. That is how much we Christians have failed our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, in thought, word and deed. That is also why America has little to no moral standards today. Stop blaming Hollywood for the antichrist, immoral condition of America, Hollywood is just giving us what we want.
When you take God out of the equation for good behavior then you have spiritual anarchy or as God tells it in Judges 17:6
In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

If you read Judges you will find that Judges 17:6 and 21:25 was a death sentence for Israel. And in reading Judges you should easily see the similarities between then and America today.

The people of “faith” who refuse to denounce evolution are as follows in a copied paragraph below.
“The following individuals—respected authors, Bible scholars, scientists, pastors, linguists, and more—hold to a diversity of views on the timing of God’s creation. And yet all have affirmed, in documented sources, that an ancient universe and Earth (including big bang cosmology) pose no threat to Christian orthodoxy, but rather may be considered plausible and valid interpretations, even literal interpretations, of the biblical text. Not one sees the question of age as a crucial doctrinal issue.”

Mar 10:5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
Mar 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

God hates spiritual cowards and when leaders, and educators choose to believe and preach theistic evolution they are not only wrong but also, if they have been born again, spiritual cowards. If they don’t know any better than that is because they have lost contact with the Spirit of truth.  And that is their fault not God’s.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Joh 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

I believe that every born again Christian should shout out truth. People both saved and lost will get the truth if they are looking for it no matter how it is presented. The Holy Spirit will see to that. And absolute truth is found in the King James Bible. How can anyone get around Genesis chapter one and still consider themselves Bible believers?

I remember hearing my, then, pastor tell us that he was going to a university working on some sort of degree. He knew that if he was to pass the science course he needed to write what was expected of him. And that was a pro-evolution paper.
He told the instructor about his belief in creation but also that he respected him and would give him what he wanted. But he told him in a tone not to be forgotten I don’t believe a word of it. He was non-combative about it and they had many after class discussions. In the end that teacher became a born again creationist.
Don’t be an arrogant Christian stay humble and prayed up perhaps you also will win over a devout evolutionist.

One way “Christians” dump creation for evolution is by using the allegorical interpretation of Scripture. Origen in the early 3rd century taught that Scripture doesn’t say what it means nor does it mean what it says. He taught that the Bible is written in stories that teach hidden lessons, and therefore it makes no difference if it happened or not. The hidden message is what really matters. Using Origen’s logic Genesis one is not to be taken literally.  How convenient is that?  If you want a lie God will give you that also.

Origen was every bit as destructive to advancing the kingdom of heaven as athestic evolution is. He supplied a way to get around the clear teaching of creation in Genesis one and all other passages that taught it.
Origen lived from 162A.D. to 254A.D. in Alexandria Egypt. He taught the allegorical method of Bible interpretation. That is the doctrine that the Bible does not mean what it says nor says what is always true. The Bible consists of stories and passages that teach a secret message. Therefore it makes no difference if the stories are true or not. It is the underlying message that counts.

Origen is one source that modern theology professors turn to, to support their rejection of the King James Bible. I kid you not check it out. Westcott and Hort are the foundation for EVERY modern Bible in print today and they both were dedicated fans of Origen’s allegorical method of interpretation.

Gap theory

One more thing;  in order to believe in atheistic evolution renamed theistic evolution by the super duper intellectual religious crowd, you must also reject a 6,000 year old earth as taught in Scripture and instead buy into the earth being millions of years old.

There are many Christian professors and scholars who believe and teach that the earth is six thousand years old and reject the million year old earth hypothesis. I believe the earth is 6,000 years old because the Bible teaches it, and that my dear reader brings us to the GAP THEORY.

Many solid Christian scientists and preachers agree with Henry Morris that the gap theory is a type of theistic evolution. I disagree. I am not saying I think that the gap theory is true only that it is biblical, and therefore we should take it under consideration.

Those who propose it are mostly solid, Bible believing, fighting, fundamentalists, who would never compromise Scripture for anyone or for any reason. So it makes no sense to compare the gap theory with the compromise of theistic evolution.

The GAP THEORY is the belief that there is a gap of unknown time in Genesis 1:2

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; [the semi colon is of undetermined length of time perhaps as much as millions of years] and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

The teaching is that after Genesis 1:1 something happened. The earth was populated with another race or perhaps angels. In any case they rebelled – that is sinned – against God and the sin was such that God shut down this part of the universe and caused the earth to become without form and void.
One reason to think that, is why did God not make the earth perfect? Why make it without form and void? The answer is God did make it perfect but sin destroyed it.

I am going to quote from Ruckman’s study Bible notes on Genesis 1:2

“Often miscalled “the gap theory” What takes place in verse 2 is historical and takes place after 1:1. There is no theory to it. The Institute for Creation Research has failed to observe that the word “AND” occurs at the beginning of every verse in the chapter down to verse 31 (with the exception of vs. 27), and not one time in thirty-one verses does it refer to the verse before it. The silly teaching that verse 2 refers to verse 1 violates the entire chapter of 31 verses.

According to 2nd Peter 3:5-6, the world was drowned out many, many hundreds of years before the Noahic flood occurred. Notice further “THE DEEP” is no reference to any kind of a “canopy” at all. It’s a reference to a body of water which now exists above the solar system – Psalm 148:4 (see Job 26:10, 37:18, 38:30). It is the frozen “sea of glass” at absolute zero, described in the book of Revelation 4:6 and 15:2. This is the “deep freeze” which Amana copied for a trade name – Song of Solomon 4:8. Dry ice burns like fire.”

The gap theory is not a vital doctrine. If it interests you then have fun with it. Just don’t get serious about it as some others do.  G.H. Pember wrote a book on it “Earth’s earliest Ages” that would be a place to start.

Anything that will get you to study your King James 1611 Bible is a good thing. The King James Bible is truth but man is a liar.

Romans 3:4
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

And Romans 14:4 – 5
Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
Rom 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

Untill next time keep your powder dry and
obey 1st Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

MIDDLE EAST PART FOUR

 

There are 2 main Muslim sects
the Shiites and the Sunni.
Whenever two groups differ in Islam that results in bloodshed – lots of it.
It isn’t like when the Catholic Church murdered and tortured well over a million Bible believing Christians – not at all. You would be hard pressed to find Bible believing Christians returning hate by killing Catholics. They Believe what God said in Romans 12:19 – 21

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Rom 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

By definition Christianity is the “religion” of peace, and the exception proves nothing except the heart of man is evil continually (Genesis 6:5).
Islam is the religion of hate.

This is what caused the split in Islam.

Muhammad died of poisoning in
632 AD and He left no successor.

SOME said that Muhammad’s successor must be a blood relative and they picked Ali (Ali bin Abu Talib).
ALI was Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law.
These will become known as Shiites.

Others wanted anyone who was qualified to be the ultimate leader of a caliphate.
These will become known as Sunni.

Right now it is 632 A.D.,

Muhammad is dead
and Abu Baker is chosen as CALIPH. He is not a blood relative so the Shiites do not fully accept him, but they tolerate it.

A Caliph is the sole authority of a Caliphate.

A Caliphate is
when all Muslims band together under the Caliph and Sharia law.
It is an absolute theocracy, with the Caliph acting as Allah’s unique man, and like a Catholic pope he is infallible.

A CALIPHATE IS RULED UNDER Sharia law. And it recognizes no borders.
A “caliph” rules the caliphate and he has authority somewhat like a Catholic Pope had during the crusades and the Spanish inquisition, only he is much more powerful
!

Ali would wait for his turn.

After Abu Baker died
Umar was chosen and
after him,
Uthman.
Ali’s supporters murdered Uthman.

And Ali – at last – became Caliph in 656 AD

Then in 661 AD Ali was murdered.

NICE GROUP OF PEACEFUL
godly folks wouldn’t you say?

[To know how a Christian should act read the Sermon on the Mount in
Matthew 5-7 and Luke 6:20-49. However that will not get you to heaven only being born again will accomplish that.
(Matthew 7:21- 23 and John 3 and pay attention to the last verse in that chapter)]

President Bush who is said to be born again, thought that a taste of democracy would change their hearts from jihad to peace –
Are you kidding me?
Talk about an example of –
those who deny history are bound to repeat it.
Only Jesus can change hearts from total depravity to being acceptable in the beloved (Ephesians 1:6-7).
It is called the gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-3) and being BORN AGAIN is the process (John 3:3).

After Ali was murdered
his son, Hassan, became Caliph.

Then when Hassan died
his son who would have been the next Caliph –
THE TWELFTH – disappeared AT HIS FATHERS FUNERAL.

Today the Shiites are still waiting for the twelfth caliph to show up. When he does he will be the long awaited Mahdi. All of Islam believes in the coming Mahdi however only Shiites believe that the Mahdi will be the twelfth caliph.

The Sunnis, the name means:
“one who follows the traditions of the prophets”,
They do not require the Caliph to be a blood relative of Muhammad and today they are the overwhelming majority.

The last caliphate was the Ottoman Empire, and Suleiman was its Caliph when it was at its zenith.
Suleiman the Magnificent, was a Sunni.

Suleiman I /ˌsʊlɪˈmɑːn/, known as “the Magnificent” in the West and “Kanuni” (the Lawgiver) in the East, (6 November 1494 – 7 September 1566) was the tenth and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, from 1520 to his death in 1566.[3]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suleiman_the_Magnificent

The Ottoman Empire expanded to cover the Balkans, Hungary, Spain and even reached the gates of Vienna.
It officially ended on March 3, 1924

The newly formed ISIS is about reestablishing the Caliphate. They say one of their priority goals is to destroy both Israel and America.
ISIS is Sunni. If the Shiite don’t get ya the Sunni will.

All that brings to mind
Genesis
16:11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
Gen 16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

Verse 12 is spot on as a description of the Muslims as we know them today, and as history describes them. They are at war with all who are non-Muslim [called Kafir by the Muslims]. And also other sects of Islam that differ from theirs.

Muslims reject friendships with non-Muslims. Before you continue reading please understand that there are many, hopefully the majority of Muslims that do not buy into the Islam hate doctrine. However they are not true believers in the core teaching of historic Islam. They are the smart ones, too bad they are murdered as soon as they begin to shout it from the roof tops.

As you read the following remember that YOU are a KAFIR

I copied the following from
http://www.politicalislam.com/blog/kafir/
It is kind of long but at least scan it so you can see what the Quran actually says about Kafirs. The references such as 40:35 are located in the Koran. The Quran use the same method the Bible uses to locate specific passages. 40:35 would be the fortieth chapter and the thirty fifth verse in the Koran. The Koran was only written by one man so there are no book titles such as “Joshua” or “Matthew” as we have in our Bible. The Muslims have three holy books the Quran, Hadith and the Sunna.

QURAN – What Allah told Muhamad
HADITH – Muhamad’s sayings and these are needed to understand the Quran.
SUNNA tell what Muhamad did, and these also are used to interpret the Quran.

Okay here it is
“The Koran defines the kafir and says that the kafir is:
Hated- 40:35 They who dispute the signs of Allah [kafirs] without authority having reached them are greatly hated by Allah and the believers. So Allah seals up every arrogant, disdainful heart. and despised by Allah.
Mocked- 83:34 On that day the faithful will mock the kafirs, while they sit on bridal couches and watch them. Should not the kafirs be paid back for what they did?
Punished- 25:77 Say to the kafirs: My Lord does not care for you or your prayers. You have rejected the truth, so sooner or later, a punishment will come.
Beheaded- 47:4 When you encounter the kafirs on the battlefield, cut off their heads until you have thor-oughly defeated them and then take the prisoners and tie them up firmly.
Confused- 6:25 Some among them listen to you [Mohammed], but We have cast veils over their [kafirs] hearts and a heaviness to their ears so that they cannot understand our signs [the Koran].
Plotted against- 86:15 They plot and scheme against you [Mohammed], and I plot and scheme against them. Therefore, deal calmly with the kafirs and leave them alone for a while.
Terrorized- 8:12 Then your Lord spoke to His angels and said, “I will be with you. Give strength to the believers. I will send terror into the kafirs’ hearts, cut off their heads and even the tips of their fin-gers!”
Annihilated- 6:45 So the kafirs were annihilated. All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
Killed- 4:91 If they do not keep away from you or offer you peace or withdraw their hostilities, then seize them and kill them wherever they are. We give you complete authority over them.
Crucified- 5:33 The only
rewardclip_image002 for those who war against Allah and His messengers and strive to com-mit mischief on the earth is that they will be slain or crucified, have their alternate hands and feet cut off, or be banished from the land. This will be their disgrace in this world, and a great torment shall be theirs in the next except those who repent before you overpower them. Know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.
Made war on- 9:29 Make war on those who have received the Scriptures [Jews and Christians] but do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day. They do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden. The Christians and Jews do not follow the religion of truth until they submit and pay the poll tax [jizya], and they are humiliated.
A Muslim is not the friend of a kafir- 3:28 Believers should not take kafirs as friends in preference to other believers. Those who do this will have none of Allah’s protection and will only have themselves as guards. Allah warns you to fear Him for all will return to Him.
A kafir is ignorant- 6:111 Even if We had sent down the angels to them [kafirs], the dead had spoken to them, and We had gathered all things before their eyes, they would not believe unless Allah had willed it, but most of them are ignorant.
Evil- 23:97 And say: Oh my Lord! I seek refuge with You from the suggestions of the evil ones [kafirs]. And I seek refuge with you, my Lord, from their presence.
Disgraced- 37:18 Tell them, “Yes! And you [kafirs] will be disgraced.” a partner of Satan 25:55 And still they worship others besides Allah who can neither help nor hurt them. The kafir is Satan’s ally against Allah. Unclean- 9:28 Oh, believers, only the kafirs are unclean.
Cursed- 33:60 They [kafirs] will be cursed, and wherever they are found, they will be seized and mur-dered. It was Allah’s same practice with those who came before them, and you will find no change in Allah’s ways.

Stolen from- Bukhari 5,59,537 On the day of Khaybar, Allah’s Apostle divided the spoils of war of Khaybar with the ratio of two shares for the horse and one share for the foot soldier.
Raped- Ishaq 759 [Mohammed's official biography] On the occasion of Khaybar, Mohammed put forth new orders about forcing sex with captive women. If the woman was pregnant she was not to be used for sex until after the birth of the child. Nor were any women to be used for sex who were unclean with regard to Muslim laws about menstruation.
Christians and Jews are infidels, but infidels are kafirs, too. Polytheists are Hindus, but they are also kafirs. The terms infidel and polytheist are religious words. Only the word “kafir” shows the common political treatment of Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, animist, atheist and humanist.
The word kafir should be used instead of “unbeliever”, the standard word. Unbeliever is a neutral term. The Koran defines the kafir and kafir is not a neutral word. A kafir is not merely someone who does not agree with Islam, but a kafir is evil, disgusting, the lowest form of life. Kafirs can be tortured, killed, lied to and cheated. So the usual word “unbeliever” does not reflect the political reality of Islam.

Evil- 23:97 And say: Oh my Lord! I seek refuge with You from the suggestions of the evil ones [kafirs]. And I seek refuge with you, my Lord, from their presence.”
the above by “Jarod Zorro — August 28, 2008 “

The above was kind of a parenthesis,
in preaching it is called a rabbit trail.
So let’s get on with it.

There has always been way more Sunnis then Shiites

THE Sunnis and Shiites mostly HATE each other. However they both hate Israel and Christianity more then they hate each other.

Every anti-Semite is a bundle of hate, violence and antichrist.
It is just more obvious with some then with others.

When Churchill drew up Iraq’s borders he Chose a Sunni and put him in charge over Iraq.

The Sunnis being the minority, had to
rule with violence and severity.
Saddam Hussein was good at that.

Then George Bush removed Saddam Hussein.

Bush wanted democracy so he encouraged Iraq to vote for a president.

Sunni voted Sunni

Shiite voted Shiite, which is the Islam of IRAN, and the majority in Iraq.

Iraq voted in a Shiite, Nouri al-Maliki
President Bush had hoped that Maliki would want democracy for his country.
BUSH was wrong.

Muslim DNA rejects democracy.
They have to reject democracy because
EVERY good Muslim wants a theocracy with sharia law- which is called a caliphate.

When BUSH went into Iraq he thought that any people who had suffered as the Iraqi’s HAD UNDER Saddam Hussein’s rule
would surely welcome
DEMOCRACY and as a result democracy would
spread like wild fire across the Middle East.

BUT
DEMOCRACY AND ISLAM IS AN OXYMORON

Because today, 2014, there are over a billion living Muslims someone wrote:
“The United States has been careful to not ascribe any culpability to the religion of Islam, but in fact has gone out of its way to affirm that individual terrorists act contrary to the beliefs of Islam.”

· Bush thought that democracy would change Iraq into a peace and freedom loving nation.

Bush was naive He should have known that
the gospel changes people, not democracy

Democracy will fail every time without Christ.
America, right now, today, is experiencing
the demise of Christian freedom. Read your Bible that is what always happens when a God blessed country rejects God for carnal pleasure and liberal theology.
America, has rejected the Bible God has blessed and the Bible that Satan hates, the King James 1611.  And in rejecting it, the “Christian” church has substituted modern up-to-date bibles edited by the “trust me because I am a scholar” crowd, which has resulted in Christian apathy and heresy. And, as a result America is now a carnal nation, a nation that worships the pleasures of the flesh. A nation without rigorous standards, and no real Biblical faith.

[Israel in the Old Testament was God’s example for a God fearing nation that rejects God’s commandments [Joshua 1:8], and to show that God demands all nations to obey His commandments He gave us the example of Assyria.
Assyria repented under Jonah’s preaching around 760 B.C. but later turned back to their wallowing in the mud, (2nd Peter 2:21). Because of Assyria’s later wickedness God used the Meads and the Persians to decimate it in 612 B.C.

Here are some Bible verses about the absolute control that God has over all nations.

Psa 22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
Psa 22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations.

And Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

And Dan 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.]

The American constitution was written for a Christian nation and it will only work for a Christian nation.
Today, we are the opposite of a Christian nation. We a carnal nation, and that is the way America votes.
We are a “lets have a party” nation of sport trivia, TV, drugs and sex. A tolerant nation calling good evil and evil good we even have a name for it – situation ethics.

the Bible says
Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

I cut out a piece from the above to revise and paste it somewhere where it would go with the flow,  but then I figured I would just put it at the end for a kind of summery. I hope you will read it because it gives new information and redundancy is the key to learning.
So here it is:

· The followers of Ali will became known as SHIITES.
Shiite means “party” or “partisans” of Ali

The 11th Imam died in 874 AD and at his funeral his young son, who would have become
the twelfth Imam disappeared.
This twelfth Imam is known to the Shiites as the coming Mahdi, the Muslim Messiah.

Those who believe that are called the “Twelvers”.

Iran, Iraq and Yemen are mostly Shiite
and today, in 2014, they are waiting for the twelfth Imamthe Mahdi – Hassan’s son who disappeared in 874 A.D. to show up.
When he does it is said that he will kill
– murder –
every Jew and every Christian who refuses to convert to Islam, and the Muslim Jesus will help him.
Then after that everyone else who is a non-Muslim is murdered.
Okay they murder um all for Allah, men women and babies – all of them – as quickly as they can.

That is what Islam the religion of peace believes and teaches,

The Sunnis
which means “well-trodden path” or “tradition”
are those who insist that the Caliph – the leader of a Caliphate – must be someone best suited for the position. They insists that a blood relative connection was not necessary.
Today the Muslims are 90 % Sunnis and 10% Shiites.

If you have been following the news you will understand when I say that ISIS is Sunni. If you do not know who ISIS is or why you should care then you are a current event dunce – shame on you,
watch the news or even better go to
http://www.drudgereport.com/
At least once a day.
You can gain much knowledge about current events just by reading the interesting headlines posted there.
Try it, it can be fun. Do that every day and when you go to work you will soon be respected as a person who knows current events, or at least your eyes wont glaze over when current events are discussed, or your ignorant exclamation, “I Didn’t know that!”.

I hope you got something from the Middle East parts one through four. It is serious business as the God of Genesis continues dealing with nations and now today with Israel being highlighted it appears that He is close to closing the circle of prophecy.
I am always careful not to be adamant that we are living in the last days just before the rapture takes all Christians out of here and transports us to heaven. Oh what a glorious day that will be. But just between you and me I said in my New year’s blog that I had a feeling that this will be a pivotal year, and so far it has proved to be true.
Well there it is, I now know what I will do for next week.
THE YEAR SO FAR IN REVIEW.

THE MIDDLE EAST PART THREE

THE MIDDLE EAST PART THREE

Parts one and two are just below this post, however you don’t need to read ether of them to understand Middle East Part Three

Did you know that the Middle East
Before WW1 was under the Ottoman Caliphate but on November 1, 1922 Turkey officially ended the caliphate.

AFTER WW1
Winston Churchill at the 1921 Cairo conference

Sat down and arbitrarily created the borders for
Jordan,
Saudi Arabia,
Syria,
Lebanon,
and IRAQ.
In 1921 Iraq was made up of various nomadic tribes united in their specific brand of Islam. Just like it is today.  In the Middle East the more things change the more they stay the same.

When Churchill drew up the borders for Iraq he grouped together
Shiites – Sunnis and Kurds.

· That is A triumvirate of hate

Eventually Iraq was bound to explode in
sectarian violence.

The Kurds are the good guys.
1]
They are located in northern IRAQ.

2]
They are not Muslim, they are called Christians.
3] They are well trained fearless warriors.

Perhaps Churchill had a weird sense of humor when he set Iraq’s borders.
I have read that Churchill was a DRUID.

Druids were well educated cult members who sacrificed to their god. One person who was a friend to the druids was Alastair Crowley. He was an occult member of the golden dawn in the late 19th century and it is said that Crowley influenced both Hitler and Churchill.

A Bible prophecy ABOUT Muslims can be found in Genesis 16:11-12
And the angel of the LORD sa
id unto her [Hagar], Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael [God will hear]; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
Gen 16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

ISLAM and democracy are incompatible.

THE Muslim’s have the Devil’s DNA.

Well - we all do until we are born again. But
the Muslims seem to have gotten a double portion.

Notice I didn’t say Arabs have gotten a double portion of the devils DNA, I said Muslims.
I have an Arab friend, Wally A. I am not posting his full name but if someone knows Wally have him contact me. I worked with him at GM in Pontiac. A nicer guy would be hard to find and he was a close work friend. He is also a Christian who once lived in Homs Syria.  A town now made popular by bombs, murder and destruction.

In 2005 IRAQ quickly fell into a
fierce religious war of extreme violence
with
SUNNI killing Shiites
SHIITES
killing Sunnis

It seems peace is the last thing ISLAM wants.

Petraeus is a four star General, and he restored peace with the 2006 – 2007 U.S. troop surge.

BUT then

America voted Obama PRESIDENT

And to show the world they meant it
they went and did it again,

giving America the president it deserves, twice over.

If America elects another godless liberal who believes in the, “going along to get along”, doctrine of appeasement  and the belief that “I am a better, a much better, person then any tea party Republican conservative”, because I am a good person guy, and republicans are evil.

If America elects another liberal congress and a godless president then I say that America will have drowned crossing the 12 miles wide Rubicon.
READ AMERICA Imagine a World Without Her” by Dinesh, D’Souza.

There are two major topics that most of America is ignorant about: Christianity and politics. The only time most Americans pay attention to politics is at election time, and it is hard to vote against Santa Claus until you realize that he is a hoax. It is easier to understand politically what is happening if you are born again, because Christians rely on God for help not the Government, and God is much more dependable then a Santa Claus Government.

Which brings us to Christianity. We are 100 years into the teaching of evolution and now – today – we are seeing the results of that satanic doctrine. The only time most Americans truly seek out the truth about the death burial and resurrection of the world’s Saviour, Jesus Christ is NEVER.
Not even on the death bed – NEVER. When is the last time you truly sought the truth about Him – JESUS THE God man. It is Jesus or Hell, and most people hate Him so much that they choose Hell. Those people do not know that because SIN has driven them insane. But – to bad – you can’t use the insanity plea at the Great White Throne Judgment [Revelation 20:11, and Matthew 7:21- 23].

With Robin Williams suicide as a type of harbinger we may see an increase by a  godless society doing the same thing.  If the grave ends it all then why continue when the pleasures of sin begin to wan.

If we are LIVING in THE LAST DAYS, just before the tribulation,
Then Obama IS THE MAN who is paving the highway for the coming
antichrist domination, prophesied throughout the Scriptures.

When
President Obama withdrew all military forces at the end of 2011,
Iraq again exploded in extreme violence.

That should have been an obvious outcome of troop withdrawal.
so, how did President Barak Hussein Obama miss the obvious?

WHY is Obama so
ignorant about Muslim DNA in the wake of 911 and when

According to the Department of Defense,
the Taliban – alone – initiated 28,600 attacks in 2011.
How is that for a religion of peace?

Muslims Kill Christians and Jews.
They destroy every church and burn every Bible they can. And they
desecrate the Christian faith every chance they get.

IN AMERICA Muslims want their civil rights
IN Islamic controlled nations there are no civil rights, and few, if any, truly want them.

A Christian will die for what he believes
BUT
A Muslim will kill you for what he believes
.

There is only one hope for Muslims

It is the same hope for everyone

REMEMBER: The Islamic war – including ISIS -is in reality a spiritual war. With Heaven or Hell the eventual destination.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

IT IS NOT A WAR BETWEEN ARABS AND JEWS

IT IS A FIGHT BETWEEN
JEHOVAH AND ALLAH.  Between good and evil.

Zecariah 12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Zec 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Amos said in 750 BC, that was 2,760 years ago
Amos 9:14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
Amo 9:15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

Amos 9:14 happened in 1948, and after three violent wars Israel is still there and doing better than ever. It is a huge contrast to see Israel so prosperous while in Gaza and the West Bank the Muslims are living in extreme poverty. Is that Israel’s fault? Is Israel purposely forcing abject poverty on the Palestinians?
I say that it is not Israel’s fault. Israel wants to live in peace with its neighbors and wants them to have the same prosperity that they have worked for and achieved.
Palestinians that live in Israel enjoy the same perks as the Jews, including voting rights.

However if you disagree then what do you base that on? The Palestinians have never pursued peace. I think that if they stopped killing and attacking Israel there would be peace and Gaza and the West Bank would be tourist attractions like Lebanon was when it had the reputation of being the Parris of the Middle East, that was until the Muslims bombed it back into the middle ages resulting in a city that no one wants to visit.

If Israel ever removed its weapons of war the Muslims would slaughter them.

If you do not agree with the previous two paragraphs then you are a stupid anti-Semite who rejects facts for lies. And I write that with kindness and concern over your selective Anti-Semitism.

There are over 316 million Muslims in America
and a billion in the world.

Someone has said that only 10% of Muslims are potential terrorist. So for sake of argument let’s go with that.
WELL
10% OF A BILLION IS 100 MILLION

Why haven’t a hundred million potential terrorist Muslims banded together? Well, God is holding them back because He wants TO GIVE YOU THE CHANCE TO BE BORN AGAIN [2nd Peter 3:9]. If you want to get the truth then just click the link: http://donoterr.wordpress.com/my-christmas-story/

If Islam ever unites under one man.  That would be a caliphate.
The streets of America and the world would be literally filled with blood.

The long anticipated  Mahdi is to be Islam’s leader.
The Mahdi has final authority and therefore the people will follow him and believe anything he says and do anything he commands – he will not ask he will command. And the reason for his coming is to kill every Jew and every Christian.

And the Muslim Jesus will help him

The Mahdi’s army is to be lead by the Muslim Jesus who will have every Christian and Jew beheaded.

The Mahdi and his Jesus come to bring the whole earth to Sharia law under Islam.
How is that for a tolerant religion?

BY DEFINITION
Muhammad was a
sociopath
a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is
antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social having or relating to a very serious mental illness that makes you act strangely or believe things that are not true.”

Koran 4:144
”Believers, do not choose the unbelievers rather than the faithful as your friends. Would you give Allah a clear proof against yourselves ?”
This verse clearly states that a Muslim can only befriend a Muslim. This verse illustrates that if a Muslim befriends a Non-Muslim than the wrath of Allah will be on him. Therefore in Islam, people of other religions should be treated with contempt,disrespect and cruelty.
Koran 47:4
”When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burdens.”

In the above verse, Mohammed is giving detailed instruction about how to maim and torture unbelievers in Jihad. And finally when the Muslims are satisfied enough after torturing and maiming the unbelievers, they should proceed to demand ransom for the captives. All for the sake for all-merciful Allah !! [copied]

Psychotichaving or relating to a very serious mental illness that makes you act strangely or believe things that are not true”

Zainab, his ninth wife, was initially married to Zayed, his adopted son. One day the prophet “beheld in a loose undress, the beauty of Zainab, and burst forth into euphoric [reworded by me-lpb] devotion and desire… [Zayed] took the hint and yielded without hesitation to the love of the benefactor.” Zayed divorced Zainab so that his father-in-law Muhammad could marry her. [copied]

In chapter 33 of Mohammed’s recitations, he relates that this arrangement was ordained by Allah

33.37: … “But when Zayed had accomplished his want of her, We [Allah] gave her to you as wife, so that there should be no difficulty for the believers in respect of the wives of their adopted sons, when they have accomplished their want of them; and Allah’s command shall be performed.”

33.38: “There is no harm in the Prophet doing that which Allah has ordained for him; such has been the course of Allah with respect to those who had gone before; and the command of Allah is a decree that is made absolute.”

REPTILIANcold-bloodedly treacherous”
in 627 AD their [The Jews that Muhammad was attacking] conflict with
Muhammad led to a 25-day siege of Banu Qurayza ending in the tribe’s surrender.[1] There is much debate about the number executed with some estimating that between 400-900 males were beheaded,[2] while the Sunni hadith simply state that all male members were killed, without specifying a figure, and one woman. COPIED FROM
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banu_Qurayza

AND A PEDOPHILE  “a person who has a sexual interest in children” –
Muhammad married – AISHA – the 7 year old daughter of his adopted son and consummated the marriage when she was 9 YEARS OLD.
How is that for a role model?

Islamists kill and loot and destroy if anyone says something about their prophet Muhammad. What! is their god to anemic to do His own fighting?
Gideon has the answer for the Muslims.

In Judges chapter 6 an angel appears to Gideon and tells him to destroy the alter of Baal and in its place build an alter pleasing to God and offer a sacrifice. Gideon was scared but he did it anyway – that is called courage and having good character.
the results are in verses 28 – 31 of that same chapter.
Jdg 6:28 And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast down, and the grove was cut down that was by it, and the second bullock was offered upon the altar that was built.

Jdg 6:29 And they said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing.

Jdg 6:30 Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it.

Jdg 6:31 And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar.

But when your god is too weak to fight his own battles and the hero can’t be defended by the truth, then you must close the disagreement with sadistic all-out violence.

Am I harsh or judgmental on Muhammad?
OVER A billion people follow him as their most holy leader. How can that many be so very wrong.

Today, ANYONE can get ANY TRUTH BY GOOGLING IT.

If you want to know the truth about Muhammad just Google it. If you are ignorant of his life and character then go ahead and check him out – I dare you.

Why should you even care?

Because Muslims desire to kill us.

No not all of them but if even as few as 10% are potential terrorists that is over 100 million Islamic terrorists!

A WARNING from the Pentagon
“Islamic State threat ‘beyond anything we’ve seen': Pentagon

ISIS is the new al-Qaeda. It has the sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants and it represent a major threat to the United States.

“They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq or anywhere else,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.”

NEXT WEEK THE MIDDLE EAST PART FOUR

MIDDLE EAST PART TWO

Middle East part two

Middle East Part one is just below this one, but you do not need to read it first to understand part two.

When we study prophecy MANY do so with a
western mind-set
But the Bible isn’t American it is eastern.
Most Christians have never been to Biblical nations,
and those who have were time limited.

Life in America is all most of us know.

We know how Americans think
and
What the American dream is.

The gentile world has been the power house since 70 A.D.
A GENTILE IS ANYONE WHO IS NOT A JEW, so that means Arabs are gentiles also.

In Luke chapter 21 verse 24 Jesus said

And they [the JEWS] shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

In 70 A.D. Jerusalem was destroyed, the temple was razed then 60 years later the The Bar Kokhba revolt [132 – 136A.D] finalized it.  The Jews were forbidden to live in Israel and they were scattered into every known nation.

 the diaspora – the scattering of the Jews throughout the world happened just as Jesus said it would in the above verse, Luke 21:24.

The “times of the gentiles
began in 586 B.C
. when Babylon captured Jerusalem.
That means the Jews were homeless for
2534 years
YET
the Jews, The blood relatives of Israel [Jacob], remain a unique race.
AND
they are now – right now today – a force to be
respected by their enemies.

THAT IS A MIRACLE
BECAUSE
For the Israelis to remain a unique people and return to their land after 2000 years
IS AN IMPOSSIBLE RESULT

THE “times of the gentiles” ENDED IN 1967
when Israel gained full control over Jerusalem
as a result of winning the six day war.

The Bible is mostly about
The land of Israel,
Its capital Jerusalem
and the JEWS

At least in the Old Testament it is.

MUCH OF THE BIBLE
is about Israel’s enemies and
God’s wrath on every nation that curses Israel.
Don’t take my word on that last statement take God’s word on it.

Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

HERE IS AN abbreviated list of nations that God has cursed:

EGYPT
THE ASSYRIANS
BABYLON
MEDES AND THE PERSIANS
THE ROMAN EMPIRE
THE BRITISH EMPIRE
and
GERMANY

Every one of those countries were once
extremely powerful and
they conquered
until they messed with Israel evoking God’s curse upon themselves.

AMERICA MAY ALREADY BE ON
God’s WRATH LIST
BECAUSE AMERICA IS TRYING TO FORCE Israel in trading land for peace. Or to put it another way selling God’s land for peace.

Lev 25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

And

Joe 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

The land doesn’t belong to the Jews or the Palestinians.  It belongs to GOD.  He owns it.

In Genesis 27:29 we find another warning that nations should bless Israel
– THAT IS TO HELP ISRAEL
not to obstruct it, or
to force Israel to trade God’s land for peace.

Gen 27:29 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.
AND I ADD VERSE 30 FOR CONTEXT

Gen 27:30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

IN Genesis 32:28
God changes Jacob’s name to Israel

Gen 32:26 And he [Jacob] said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
Gen 32:27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
Gen 32:28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

God will curse those who are anti-Semitic.
An anti-Semitic is someone who has an illogical hatred for Jews and wants to hurt them anyway they can.
Anti-Semitism is a true demonic doctrine that Satan has used throughout Scriptures and he is better at it today then he ever was. He uses it to control anti-Christ nations.

AND Muslims best stop poking God in the eye.
God gets very angry when you do that

Zec 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

Many words have changed over the years. A quick example of that is the word “gay”. Spoiled is another one of those words.
When I think of spoiled I think of a spoiled brat kid. Or fruit left on the Kitchen counter top, or a ball game spoiled by the weather.
The spoiled in Zechariah 2:8 has a much different meaning.
The 1828 Webster dictionary has this definition for SPOILED, pp. Plundered; pillaged; corrupted; rendered useless.

Israel” is in the KJ 1611 Bible, 2575 times and

Jerusalem is mentioned 814 times

ISRAEL AND ITS CAPITAL,
the holy city of JerusalemZION -
is the
center of this world
center of the universe
center of prophecy

I believe in CIRCULAR PROPHECY. Everything started in Israel and everything will end there.

Ezekiel 5:5Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.”

I think that when God made the earth
He put His thumb print on the land of Israel
AND God said
THIS IS MINE
THIS IS HOLY GROUND

Exo 3:5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

Let’s look at Zechariah 12:9

Zechariah 12:9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

Zechariah 12:9 is why Israel has won three wars THAT THEY HAD NO CHANCE OF WINNING
Muslims hate Israel BECAUSE
AS long as Israel exists it is an affront to Allah – the Muslim god.

Iran is close to nuclear weapons.

But I do not believe that Israel will ever be nuked.

IRAN boasts about killing JEWS.

A headline reads
In New York, defiant Ahmadinejad says Israel will be “eliminated

BUT GOD TELLS US IN THE BIBLE THAT AHMADINEJAD DOESN’T STAND A CHANCE OF ELIMINATING ISRAEL. Besides the curse [discussed above] there is also Zechariah 14:12

Zechariah 14:12
was written in 519 B.C., 2533 years ago,
and it Paints a picture with Israel’s enemies receiving the wrath of God’s vengeance with what appears to be by a nuclear weapon.

Zechariah 14:12, And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Zechariah 14:12 sounds like a nuclear weapon exploding
perhaps in Iran
not in Israel

PROPHECY’S EPICENTER IS THE MIDDLE EAST
NOT America
NOT Europe

PART THREE will be next week

MIDDLE EAST part one

This is a revision of “WHAT’S UP WITH THE MIDDLE EAST” I have divided it into two parts and have rewritten and added new material. I would like to use a larger font but 9 point seems to be the only size available.  I get a list of font sizes to choose from and when I do – It just stays at 9 point?  I do have a choice of different font types so I am trying to find the best one for 9 point. The font I am using this time is BOOKMAN OLD STYLE. 

I taught part one for the Wednesday night service, so here it is. It is bound to be much better than the first one.

The Middle East is undergoing a great upheaval.

NOT CHAOS – because it is organized
NOT ANARCHY – because It has specific goals and leaders.

MIDDLE EAST EVENTS are coming together
And they may be ending
the dispensation of the Church age

and Bring in a
NEW DISPENSATION OF WRATH

  • IRAN – will shortly have nuclear weapons, and that will be a game changer.
    IRAN is a sponsor of terror and
    Hamas is their weapon against Israel.  The thing to remember is that Hamas does Iran’s bidding.  They attack Israel when Iran tells them to do so.


IRAN’s stated goal is to get the world ready for the Mahdi

Getting the world ready for the
Mahdi is Muslim eschatology.

Islam teaches that a CONQUEROR will come THE MAHDIand he will
force Islam on the whole world.
The Mahdi’s prophet is the Muslim “JESUS”.  he will help the Mahdi to convert the world to Islam.  Whosoever refuses to convert will die.  That is what Islam teaches, summed up in a couple of sentences.

  • AFGHANISTAN

WAS THE game changer.
IT was the chess move that has set up the
end game of end time events.

AFGHANISTAN is the nation that bankrupted AND CRIPPLED Russia.
Russia went into Afghanistan in December 1979
AND after 9 years of intense fighting
THEY LEFT in February 1989
humiliated and beaten.
Russia had lost and the Iron Curtain crumbled into dust.

DURING that Russia – Afghanistan war

1] America gave Muslims weapons and training and The American Army taught them how to fight.

The reasoning was that old familiar saying,
”The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
That advice proved fatal for many victims of terror in the next 30 years.  Because your friend today can very well be your enemy tomorrow.  Not that Islam was ever the friend of America.

2] Afghanistan’s victory over Russia was the reigniting – the turning point – of
Islamic terrorism


Osama Ben Laden
taught that the Muslims were apostate,
and that is the reason why the Arabs couldn’t destroy ISRAEL.

why was ISRAEL still there????

THE ARABS are
fighting for Allah
YET THEY had
lost three major wars.  And that is the main reason there will never be peace between Israel and its neighbors – NEVER.

1948 – THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE
the state of Israel was declared in Tel Aviv by David Ben Gurion, on
May 14, 1948

And
that very night the Arabs launched an air attack on Tel Aviv.

Then  followed it up with an all-out invasion by
LEBANON
SYRIA
JORDAN
Iraq
and the PALESTINIANS.

ISRAEL should have lost.
England did all they could right up to May 13 1948, to keep Israel from forming an army.  Israel had to smuggle arms into Israel.  The weapons were mostly World War one rifles and Israel had to train in secret. 
It would appear that England did all they could to insure Israel would fall to the Arabs.

On paper Israel had no chance of winning that war.

BUT in spite of being
out gunned
out manned and
out armied

ISRAEL WON

And Islam wondered why Allah had lost.

  • 1967 SIX DAY WAR
    EGYPT, SYRIA, JORDAN, AND IRAQ
    JOINED TOGETHER TO ATTACK ISRAEL

BUT
ISRAEL
ATTACKED FIRST
They had surprised them
and in six days the Arabs had surrendered

The ARABS lost Jerusalem and Gaza
AND

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER 2000 YEARS
ISRAEL was back in control of their Holy city JERUSALEM.

  • 1973 YOM KIPPUR WAR
    Yom Kippur is Israel’s most holy day of atonement.
    The army had given all but a few permission to go home to celebrate it, leaving Israel with only the bare minimum to protect the land.

NOBODY SUSPECTED what was coming

Israel was caught flat footed – caught by surprise.

Israel never had a chance as –
Egypt and Syria
supported by Jordan, Algeria, Cuba, Morocco, and Tunisia
INVADED ISRAEL FROM THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH.  That is called a pincher attack
Israel should have lost that war
But ISRAEL DECIMATED the Arabs

Allah was again humiliated
and Osama Ben Louden decided that the reason for Israel’s victories,
and by default Allah’s defeat –
was Muslim apostasy.
Allah would only bless strict obedience to the Koran and the Hadith literature.

The Koran is the Muslim bible
and the Hadith are the sayings and life of Muhammad.

ISIS is picking up the baton that Osama Ben Laden left when Barak Hussein Obama had him killed.

TODAY ISIS – Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – is an upstart Sunni organization.

It is said they are unmatched for their brutality.  Considering how violent and reptilian Islam is that is quite a statement. As ISIS moves across Syria and Iraq many are running in fear.  Many Shiite Iraq soldiers are said to throw down their weapons and running in fear of ISIS swords.

ISIS has gained control of much of Syria and Iraq.

Obama was caught napping or playing golf.  Perhaps if he had followed through with his “you better not cross the red line” threat aimed at Syria’s use of chemical weapons, or even if he had shown some strength in Libya or Egypt things would have been different. But he didn’t.

President Obama didn’t have a clue that in such a short time ISIS would gain so many recruits and control so much territory.  The question to ask is why not?  How proficient is our CIA intell? We need good professional people to understand what is going on throughout the world.  With Russia boldly going into the Ukraine and an airliner getting shot down and a couple weeks latter it is already a squashed story, sending a green light to every rotten terrorist nation around the globe that America, after 6 years of a Liberal Government, is giving out passes and ignoring reality. the Mexico border is so porous that terrorist could come in anytime they want.  The only reason Islam has not hit us again is Jehovah, Jesus, God.  China and Japan are sworn enemies ready to pounce on each other.  North Korea is arming terrorist groups and is a constant threat to the stability of south Korea. America is in need of an informed CIA and advisors to President Barak Husain Obama that have a realistic world view and not some utopia “peace not war” idiocy.  AND AMERICA – most of all – NEEDS TO GET BACK TO THE KING JAMES BIBLE, and believing God Jehovah Jesus.

ISIS IS ABOUT
The renewal of the ISLAMIC
CALIPHATE.
what is the caliphate?

The Caliphate is the absolute authority of the Caliph to rule over Muslim nations.  It recognizes no borders and demands absolute obedience to the Caliph, who is the all powerful Muslim pope.  The Caliphate is under Sharia law, and a caliphate recognizes no borders or countries.

The Caliph gives orders and those orders are obeyed  and whoever refuses to join the Caliphate is killed. EVERYONE

The Ottoman Caliphate operating from Turkey
was the last one.
It began in 1453 and ended officially in 1934, after World One War .

Al Qaida members as well as many other Sunnis are leaving and joining ISIS, resulting in ITS rapid growth.

ISIS is killing Christians, Jews, Shiites and anyone who refuses to join them. 
Death is the recruiting incentive. AND OF COURSE being part of the long awaited renewal of the Calphate.


Here is something I copied from the internet
”Exclusive: Iraq says Islamic State killed 500 Yazidis, buried some victims alive
Mohammed Shia al-Sudani said the Sunni militants had also buried alive some of their victims, including women and children. Some 300 women were kidnapped as slaves, he added.”

  • GAZA:
    Israel took control of Gaza after the 1967 six day war

There has always been a Lot of terrorist attacks launched by Hamas from Gaza into Israel.

Then after 38 years in 2005
Israel withdrew from GAZA
 
Hoping THAT Gaza would pursue peace.
Surely the Palestinians would sit down with Israel and come up with a plan so their people could be lifted out of extreme poverty.  President Bush made the same mistake when he went into Iraq.  Not realizing that as long as Israel exists Allah is humiliated.   

In order to withdraw from GAZA Israel had to force Israelis to move out of Gaza.  They had been there for over thirty years and that was home to them.  Now they had to get out and start over again somewhere else.  It was a cruel thing to do but Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon thought it necessary for future peace.  Israel has always proved their desire for a mutual peace with the Palestinians.

CEMETERIES were dug up and the dead were removed. Because the Palestinians would have dug them up and desecrated the bodies.  That is standard procedure with the Palestinians.

The Israelis Left behind green houses and such

Instead of using them the Muslims destroyed them

AND – to show that they hated Jews more than they hated living in squalor and poverty
Gaza voted in Hamas – a terrorist organization, as their new Government.

Golda Meir who was President of Israel from 1969 to 1974
said in 1957
”Peace will come to the Middle East when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us.”

GAZA IS A perfect EXAMPLE OF THAT

  • HAMAS was formed in 1987. It had been part of the Muslim Brotherhood which had been active in the GAZA STRIP since the 1950’s.
    Hamas hates Jews and they worship Hitler.

Hamas is a terrorist organization, and everyone knows that.
In the Hamas – Israel – Gaza WAR with Israel, Hamas deliberately put their children in harms way, well maybe not their children just the Palestinian children – who knows the truth of that? A parent’s instinct is to protect their children.  For civilized people that is always top priority, but not in Islam the “religion of peace”.

Hamas launches rockets from schools and hospitals they put their children in harms way so they can die so that they can use their children as propaganda fodder.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE WHO DON’T PROTECT THEIR KIDS??????????????

and
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE BLAMING ISRAEL FOR WHAT Hamas is doing?
GAZA HAS LAUNCHED OVER 3000 ROCKETS INTO Israel
If not for the “IRON DOME”  Israel would have many dead and many buildings destroyed.
If that had happened Israel would still be condemned.  Anti Semitism is an ugly sin and those who partake of it end up insane.

IN NEW YORK – “Thousands of people took to the streets of New York City on Friday evening to protest Israel’s offensive in the Gaza Strip and demand an end to the violence that has reportedly killed nearly 850 Palestinians.” [COPIED FROM THE INTERNET]. 

MANY TODAY ARE CALLING FOR A BOYCOTT OF ISRAEL ??????
MUSLIM PROPAGANDA WITH THE HELP OF A LIBERAL NEWS MEDIA
HAVE REVERSED THE ROLES OF DAVID AND GOLIATH

They have MADE DAVID INTO A GOLIATH
AND
THE MILLIONS OF ARABS
into a TYPE OF DAVID underdog.


AND
THE ANTI-SEMITIC CROWD
WANTs TO COPY WHAT A BOYCOTT DID
TO END APARTHEID IN SOUTH AFRICA.
They hope to force Israel into making peace with those who do not want peace. With the end result the total destruction of Israel.  Many of these anti-Semitics do not even realize how wicked they are because they live in cloud land ignoring evidence and history.  They live believing if you do others right they will do you right.  Read your Bible and use Jesus as an example of that.  The religious crowd is rotten to the core.  True Christianity is a personal relation ship with the God of love through the death of Jesus.  The King James Bible tells it like it is, read it to understand what has and is going on with people and nations since the beginning – or don’t and stay willfully stupid but stupidity will catch up with you sooner or later.

  • IRAQ

AFTER 11 YEARS

AND 4,489 dead American soldiers
AND with 32,000 wounded
IT seems Iraq will be much worse than when we started
AND

Iraq may very well end up a terrorist nation as ISIS gains more and more control.

PART TWO NEXT WEEK

MATTHEW CHAPTER FOUR

MATTHEW CHAPTER FOUR

This is part two of a two part series.

However, I am POSTING the following first. If you don’t want to read it then just scroll down to the article.
Michigan CHURCHES located in OSCODA, GREENBUSH, CLAWSON AND CAPAC
If you live in the Oscoda – Greenbush area and if you are looking for a solid Bible believing, Bible preaching, King James church I have great news for you, there are TWO that I am familiar with. The pastors in both of these Churches have a tender heart and they both are God used men preaching the King James Bible as it should be preached, in God’s power and dependent on the Holy Ghost for conviction and results.
AND NONE OF THOSE PASTORS – NOR ANYONE ELSE – HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS BLOG. I ALONE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER FOR IT AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST

ANCHOR Baptist in Oscoda it is just north of the Oscoda post office, ON US 23. The pastor is Glenn Bake – phone: 989-254-5071
GREENBUSH COMMUNITY BAPTIST in Greenbush. Going north on US 23 turn left at the first street when entering town. If you miss it then just turn left at the next street drive one block and the church will be on the corner. If you turn at the first street, Gruff, then turn right on the next, State street, the church is about a block down on the west side. The address is 2430 S. State street. The pastor is A.C. Caincross PHONE 724-5264 Pastor Caincross has a blog http://blessedabovemeasure.wordpress.com
BETHANY BAPTIST Located in Clawson Michigan at the traffic light On the corner of 14 mile and Custer Phone 248-436-9336 The pastor is Jim Howie. He is as fine a pastor as I have ever had the privilege to sit under. He is a true man of God. If you are in the area I strongly urge you to check it out.
BLESSED HOPE BAPTIST 1635 Berville Road Allenton, Michigan Phone: 586-784-5854 This church is out in the country around Capac. This is a church you can get involved in and help it grow, while at the same time you can mature in the Scriptures. If you attend make sure to say hi to my brother-in-law Jim MacCleary and sister-in-law Dorthy. I have posted some of Jim’s writings on this blog http://donoterr.wordpress.com/things-copied/

MATTHEW CHAPTER FOUR verse one

Mat 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

There are two objects to consider in this verse.
The FIRST one is,
Jesus was led by the Spirit – that would be the Holy Spirit of God – the third person of the God head. Anytime I make a statement like that I always feel obligated to say that There is ONLY ONE GOD but with THREE unique personalities. God is the Father and God is Jesus, and God is the Holy Spirit. Not one at a time but all the time (Matthew 3:16-17 scroll down to part one to read my comments) There is a limerick that goes like this:
One in three
Three in one
And the one in the middle died for me.

Of course God didn’t die – the man Jesus died. Jesus was born the second Adam, and He became the propitiation for our sins.
1Jn 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

propitiation is not a word that you find to often outside the Scriptures. Here is a definition from Webster’s 1828 dictionary:
“In theology, the atonement or atoning sacrifice offered to God to assuage his wrath and render him propitious to sinners. Christ is the propitiation for the sins of men.
Rom 3. 1 John 2.”

The next thing I find in verse one is that
Jesus always knew what the Holy Spirit of God wanted Him to do.
We don’t have that absolute assurance.

Here is a guide to help you with that
FIRST - The natural man can’t understand spiritual things.
He can accept the teaching but on the inside it isn’t life changing for him.
1st Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

The “natural man” is someone who has never been “BORN AGAIN“. (John 3:3)
If you have never been born again then by definition you are lost and in jeopardy of going to Hell. Don’t be stupid or arrogant, stop reading and click here
http://donoterr.wordpress.com/how-2-b-born-again/
Do it now.

SECOND Romans 12:1-2
Tells the BORN AGAIN believer exactly how they can know the will of God for their lives.
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Every born Again believer should memorize Romans 12:1-2.

THIRD -  Read your KJ Bible. God will never have you do something He has denounced in Scripture. God gave that Bible so we could know His will.
2Ti 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

FOURTH  Pray for guidance
Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

If you are following Romans 12:1-2, reading your King James 1611 Bible and you are prayed-up then FOLLOW YOUR HEART.

Here are a couple verses to help you with following your heart
1Co 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
AND
1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

the second point for verse one is that JESUS was tempted.

Mat 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

This proposes a question: could Jesus have ever sinned?

Let me copy what two Bible Scholars: Henry Morris and Peter Ruckman have said in their Study Bible.

HENRY MORRIS
TEMPTED: Jesus was God incarnate, and “God cannot be tempted with evil” (James 1:13). Both Father and Son knew that He could not sin, yet He must be “tested” (a better connotation of the word then “tempted”) so that the world and the devil would also know.”

PETER RUCKMAN
Verses 1-10 deal with the question of the pecability of Christ; I.E. could Jesus Christ have sinned? Every apostate Fundamentalist would say He could not have sinned, under any condition. If that were so, why would Satan tempt Christ if he did not believe there was a chance that he could have succeeded in getting Jesus to rebel against God? When a conservative or fundamentalist takes the position that Christ was impeccable (unable to sin), he is claiming to be smarter then the most brilliant being in the universe outside of God himself (see Ezikiel 28:3)”
Eze 28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:

My thinking is that the God – man, Jesus, was the second Adam. The first Adam betrayed God’s trust and chose sin. Jesus, who was, is and eternally always will be God, was born a man to set that right. He would prove that Adam did not have to succumb to the temptation which resulted in the human race being cursed. Therefore it seems to me that in order to be the true second Adam Jesus, like Adam, could have sinned but unlike Adam He didn’t.

2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
AND
Luk 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

the next passage is sort of long but read it slow and think about what God is saying. It tells the why about Jesus and Adam.
Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
Rom 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
Rom 5:16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
Rom 5:17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
Rom 5:19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Rom 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

This is what Scofield has to say about Matthew 4:1 – the temptation of Christ.

The temptation of Christ, the “last Adam” (1Co_15:45) is best understood when contrasted with that of the “first man Adam.” Adam was tempted in his place of lord of creation, a lordship with but one reservation, the knowledge of good and evil; (Gen_1:26); (Gen_2:16-17). Through the woman he was tempted to add that also to his dominion. Falling, he lost all. But Christ had taken the place of a lowly Servant, acting only from and in obedience to the Father. (Phi_2:5-8); (Joh_5:19); (Joh_6:57); (Joh_8:28); (Joh_8:54).

My thought is that if Jesus, as the second Adam – not as God – if He could not have sinned then – well – it seems a little like cheating to me.

Those are my honest thoughts. Before coming to any kind of a conclusion the reader should pray and study it out.

NEXT VERSE
Mat 4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

Jesus was hungry because He was a person and as a man he got hungry and thirsty and experienced every emotion just like Adam did and just as you do – BUT without sin.

Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Soon after being born again a person should devour the Bible [a good place to start would be 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, and The gospel of John.] Just read the Bible asking God to guide you.

There is a great and free Bible software. It has a lot of commentaries so if -when- you have questions you can quickly read what some others have said about the confusing passage. Just down load it then choose your commentaries but no Bibles as it comes with the KJV. It is called e-sword and here is the link:
http://www.e-sword.net/downloads.html

• There is something about fasting and praying.
Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Whenever I find out that a verse has been removed or radically changed I suspect that the Devil is behind it. Matthew 17:21 is removed or corrupted in many of the new bibles.

You do not have to fast 40 days but one or two days could prove to be rewarding.

Mat 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

Satan says to Jesus “IF
Satan knew who Jesus was, and so do many in America.  Many though have let their heart felt knowing ebb away.  And as a result many never become Born Again.
When things go side ways they get angry because God let them go into the valley of pain and despair. As if God owed them something.
God owes you nothing, but you owe Him everything. If tragedy, hunger, threats or anything else comes your way you tell God thank you and ask Him for some more (thanks Peter for that).
Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Stop whining like a selfish teenager and stand tall knowing what it cost God to save us.

1Pe 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
1Pe 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot

What would be wrong in turning stones to bread?
It would have been wrong because Jesus would be acting outside the will of God, just as Adam did. Adam’s sin was eating some kind of fruit, you have probably done the same in the last 24 hours. The sin wasn’t so much the eating but the rejection of God’s word. We have a word for that today; Adam dissed God. That is what sin is doing things your way instead of God’s way.
Every temptation the Devil used to tempt Jesus was identical to the temptations of Adam and his wife Eve.

Henry Morris, in his study Bible says,
The devil had tempted Eve and (indirectly) Adam with a three-fold temptation, in body, soul, and spirit (“good for food”, “pleasant to the eyes” “make one wise” – Genesis 3:6) and they had failed the test. All other men would fail the same test, succumbing to “the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” (1st John 2:16). Jesus as son of man, was subjected to the same three-fold testing and passed the test. Furthermore, He did it in His humanity, without recourse to His power as the Son of God, and He did it – as we can – through believing and applying the recourses of God’s written Word.

In the Next verse Jesus answers Lucifer:
Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

The first thing Jesus says is “IT IS WRITTEN“.
That is why you must read your Bible every chance you get. You read it so you can think like Jesus thinks and know what is right and know what is wrong. The Bible is also our weapon against evil. Read it every chance you get.

I am astounded at the arrogance of so many people who tell God what He must do and what is right and wrong. Of course they have spent little time if any studying the Scriptures.
And let me say this – STOP just stop making excuses for God. Just tell it like it is. Yes God did drown over a million people in the flood as told in Genesis chapter six. You can then warn them that someday they will be judged by Him. Then run them over to Revelation chapter 20.
Job 35:2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God’s?

NEXT
Mat 4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
Mat 4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Mat 4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

You must compare Scripture with Scripture to get the whole picture. We find some vital information when we read of this part of the life of Jesus in Luke 4:6.
Luk 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

Notice that Satan, the dragon [Revelation 12:9], is the god of this world.

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Many times it is Lucifer who makes people rich and powerful. When considering the good fortunes of others you never know for sure if it wasn’t the Devil that brought them health and riches. I know a few people who belong to what I describe as Quasi Christian cults. They have been greatly blessed with money and wealth. They seem to have the Midas touch. The point is who is blessing them? They think it is God. I think God blesses His family, not the Devils.

It is time for one of my stories.
In the book of Job Satan goes up before God and he tells God that if God would let him take away Job’s health, family and his riches, Job would turn on Him. God said do it.
It didn’t work. In spite of the Devil throwing everything he could at him, Job came through with flying colors – all A pluses.
With that thought in mind. Sometimes God chooses special people to suffer for the cause of Christ. You just can’t judge by the outward appearance. Just love God and love people and spread the gospel anyway you can. And purpose to be an obedient slave.

Back in the late 19th century I think maybe the Devil reversed his strategy. Perhaps today the Devil says do these American Christians love God for nothing? Let me give them riches and power and pleasure and they will quickly worship me and reject you. That has worked as today a popular religious teaching is, God wants you rich healthy and powerful. God wants you to be obedient to Him and to LOVE HIS SON – Jesus Christ

What I want to point out is STOP USING GOD AS A MAGIC GENIE.
Yes God absolutely answers prayer – every prayer that a born again person utters God hears and answers. But just because you are not delivered or you don’t get a blessing – I tithed and now I’m starving. God has blessed Jerry with so much money. It seems whatever he does turns to gold. Yet I am struggling. Why isn’t my marriage working out God can change all that so it must be Gods fault.

Listen you big baby, go tell the ones who are being tortured for their faith right now, even today. They have suffered the loss of all things for their love of Jesus, go tell them how you can’t catch a break.

My example for God’s blessing can be found in the Old Testament book of Daniel Chapter three verses 15-18, with the emphasis on verses 17 and 18. It is my go to passage for prayer.
Dan 3:15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
Dan 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
Dan 3:17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
Dan 3:18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Our next verse is also the last one we will consider.

Mat 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

is the Lord your God? If He is then worship Him as such. If not then get saved or go to Hell.
