“End of the ‘World’ predictions–101”…Blog.
“End of the ‘World’ predictions–101”…Blog.
*** (Matthew 24:36) But = of that day = and hour = “No” = one knows, = “No”, = “Not” = the angels of Heaven, = but = “ONLY” = My [Jesus] = Father [God].
Recently, and as in the past… there have been ‘Many’ predictions; about the End of the Age. Family Radio, based in California has already predicted the ‘End’; 5-times and has said it will come again in ‘2011’. Did you ‘read’, in the above verse… ‘Christ Jesus’… “Does NOT”; even say that He knew the hour… “ONLY” the Father…? There have been “Numerous False Predictions”… throughout the ages. As a new Christian, I even remember back, in the 70’s… there was quite a ‘few’ such False Claims… by some big name preachers. The ‘picture’ with this blog is an example!
*** (Matthew 24:24) For = false Christs’ = and false prophets = will arise = and show great signs and wonders [miracles]; = so much so that, = if it were possible, = they would deceive = even the elect.
*** (2Peter 2:1-2) But there were also = false prophets among the people, = even as there will be = false teachers among you, = who secretly will bring in = destructive heresies, = even denying the Master who bought them, = bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And = “MANY” = will follow their pernicious ways, = and = because of them = the way of Truth = will be evil spoken of. [mockers will say – you said He was coming and did not]
*** (Acts 17:11) And these = were more noble than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = daily = to see if those things = were so.
*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, = If = they do not hear Moses = and the Prophets, = they will ‘not’ = be persuaded, = even though = one rose from the dead.
How about “You”…? Do you believe that ‘You Tube Video’…? Or that ‘preacher’ you hear about; who made those predictions…? Or how about that, “Secular” teaching about the ‘Mayan Calendar’; that the world will end in 2012…? Did you read those ‘above’ Bible verses…? There were “False Teachers” over 2,000 years ago; do you think there will be… ‘more or less’ Now…? Do you… ‘Search the Scriptures’… to see if, that teaching is valid; or ‘Not’…? Remember the “Elect”… will ‘Not’… be taken in by, such… “Lies!”
Did you see the “IF”… caveat of “Luke 16:31”… “IF” they Do ‘NOT’ = Hear; Moses and the Prophets?” There are ‘Many’ prophecies in the OT, about Christ’s return; and what it will be like. Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel… but also in the minor [smaller OT books] also. What about the… “70-weeks of Daniel?” Did you know that we are ‘Holding’… in the 69th week; because the “Messiah”, was promised then; and that was “Over 2,000–years ago”; when ‘He’ = “Christ Jesus”, came!
*** (1Thessalonians 5:21) “Prove” = ‘All’ = things, = hold fast = to the good.
*** (1John 2:21) I have not written to you = because = you do not know = the “Truth”, = but because you know it, = and = know that = “No Lie” = is = of = “The Truth”.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them = through Your Truth. = Your Word = is Truth.
*** (1Corinthians 14:38) But = if any = is ignorant, = let him = be ignorant.
Recently I even wrote to… ‘One’ of those; posting that “Wrong Information about the End” and asked him; “Do you really ‘Believe’ that? His ‘affirmative’ answer was followed by my comment… “IF”… ‘You really believe that Christ, is coming back in ‘2011’… Why don’t ‘You’… “Deed to me your “House” and “Vehicle?” He would ‘Not’ respond...! Do you even wonder… “Why such ‘people’ say something… that they “Will Not”… back up; with their “Real Property?”
*** (2Timothy 3:13) But = evil men = and = seducers = will go forward = to ‘worse’, = ‘deceiving’ = and = ‘being deceived’.
*** (2Chronicles 18:19-to-22) And Jehovah said, = Who shall tempt Ahab king of Israel = so that he may go up = and fall = at Ramoth-gilead? = And one spoke saying in one way, = and another saying in another way.
(2Ch 18:20) And a spirit = came out = and stood before Jehovah and said, = I will tempt him. = And Jehovah said, = With what?
(2Ch 18:21) And he said, = I will go out and be a = “lying spirit” = in the mouth = of all his [false] prophets. = And Jehovah said, = You shall tempt him, = and you are able. = Go out and do so. [God gave that lying spirit – permission to do so]
(2Ch 18:22) And now behold, = Jehovah has [aloud] put = a lying spirit = in the mouth of these your [false] prophets, = and Jehovah has spoken evil against you.
Those that are “Deceived”… have done so; ‘Because’ = they have “Rejected the Word”, and the “Truth of the Lord!” Many people “Never”… ‘Read & Study’… their Bible; let alone look at the Hebrew OT and the Greek NT and compare the verses…! They know ‘nothing’; nor ‘want’ to; of ‘how’ the OT Prophecies… relate to their NT fulfillment! And of those… “Yet to be Fulfilled!” They follow ‘this’ teacher and ‘that’ teacher… and yet; “Never” Study the Word for themselves… Asking the Holy Spirit to teach them!
*** (John 14:26) But the Helper, = the Holy Spirit, = Whom the Father [God] = will send in My [Jesus] name, = will teach you all things = and remind you = of all that I have told you.
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your best = to present yourself = to God = as an approved worker = who has nothing to be ashamed of, = handling = the Word of Truth = with 'precision'.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-to-17) From a child = you have known = the Holy Scriptures = that are able to give you = the wisdom you need for salvation = through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture = is God-breathed = and is useful = for teaching, = for reproof, = for correction, = and for training in righteousness,
(2Tim 3:17) so that = the man of God = may be complete = and = thoroughly equipped = for every good work.
*** (James 1:5-6-7) Now = if any of you = lacks wisdom, = he should ask God, = Who gives to everyone generously = without a rebuke, = and it will be given to him.
(Jas 1:6) But he = must ask in faith, = without any doubts, = for the one who has doubts = is like a wave of the sea = that is driven and tossed = by the wind.
(Jas 1:7) Such a person = should = not expect = to receive anything = from the Lord.
About now… you can see that those; that are taken in by “False Teaching”; Do “Not” ‘Read’ & ‘Study’… the Holy Word of God. They do “NOT” ask God for wisdom about His Word; “Nor” do they ask the Holy Spirit… to teach them from the “Holy Word of God!” It is my belief that they ‘do not’… even know “Basic–Bible Doctrine”… about Salvation by Grace and its Permanency; … about Forgiveness, ‘positional’ and ‘experiential’; …and even the basics about Prayer. Sorry NO… I am not ‘accusing’ = nor am I ‘excusing’ their actions… just stating; the “Facts!” How else could they be taken is such… ‘End’ of the world… “Error?”
*** (Hebrews 5:8-9) Son [of God] though He was, = He = learned obedience = through His sufferings
(Heb 5:9) and, = once made perfect, = He [Jesus] = became the Author of = eternal salvation = for all = who obey Him,
*** (Psalms 66:18) If = I regard iniquity = in my heart, = Jehovah [God] = will not = hear me;
*** (1Peter 4:17-18) For the time has come = for the judgment = to begin from [at] = the house of God. = And if it = ‘first’ = begins from us, = what will be ‘the end’ of those = disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And = if = the righteous one = is scarcely saved, = where = shall the ungodly = and = the sinner appear?
*** (2Corinthians 13:5-to-8) Keep examining yourselves = to see whether = you = are continuing = in the faith. = Test yourselves! = You know, = do not you, = that = Jesus Christ lives in you? [Romans 8:9] = Could it be = that you = are failing the test?
(2Cor 13:6) I hope you will realize = that we haven't failed = our test.
(2Cor 13:7) We pray to God = that you will = not do anything wrong = not to show that we have not failed the test, = but so that = you = may do what is right, = even if we seem to have failed.
(2Cor 13:8) For we cannot = do anything = against the Truth, = but only = for the Truth.
*** (John 14:6) Jesus said to him, “I am the Way, = the Truth, = and = the Life [Eternal]. = No one = comes to the Father [God] = except through Me [Jesus].
Thanks, In Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 33:3.
