Look at what dear God did for us through His Son, Jesus the Christ, giving us all the opportunity for eternal life by coming here in the flesh and giving His Life as ransom. He bent down or stooped in kindness by showing His mercy on all of us in the flesh as here in:
I Timothy 2:5 "For [there is] one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,"
I Timothy 2:6 "Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." (KJV)
He gives us the Way through Him to go to dear God as the Mediator so that you can directly talk with dear God. By the Son coming here the veil is rent as here in:
Mark 15:37 "And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost." (KJV)
Mark 15:38 "And the veil of the Temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom." (KJV)
By His Ransom of His Life on the cross for you, He opened that door between you and dear God so you can go to dear God directly through Him. Until He came as Savior this is how it was told by dear God to approach Him as here in:
Exodus 26:33 "And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy [place] and the most holy." (KJV)
So at the time before Jesus the people had to go through the high priest to go to dear God. Right now today think of the beauty and the great thing that His Son did for you by giving you the opportunity to go right to Him in His Son's Name and talk with Him. So let Him talk with you in His Word in which His language is easy, straightforward that He will help you if you make an effort to get into it and learn. What a love He does have for His children as dear God wants all of His kids to come home to Him as here in:
II Peter 3:9 "The LORD is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all come to repentance."
II Peter 3:10 "But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." (KJV)
Know that dear God's Will is that we come to Him through this Mediator that He has sent us. What will happen before the day of the LORD when He comes as a thief in the night? He has told you directly here in:
Luke 21:7 "And they asked Him, saying, "Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign [will there be] when these things be? and what sign [will there be] when these things shall come to pass?" (KJV)
Luke 21:8 "And He said, "Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in My name, saying, ‘[I am Christ];' and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them."
Luke 21:9 "But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end [is] not by and by." (KJV)
So here Jesus answers His disciples the question what will happen before your return, so the first thing to would be the opposite of war is peace. Have you heard of world peace, peace talks and the such? You are supposed to be a watchman so watch. Let's continue here in:
II Thessalonians 2:1 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto Him,"
II Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."
II Thessalonians 2:4 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself the he is God."
II Thessalonians 2:9 " [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders."
II Thessalonians 2:10 "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."
II Thessalonians 2:11 "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:" (KJV)
Here Paul teaching telling you again warning do not let any man deceive you, but first a falling away first. There is only one son perdition and He will sit in God's favorite spot, His Temple, in Jerusalem, claiming to be God. Will you follow the Word of God that dear God has written to you or listen to men's traditions? As God will send even more delusion if you choose to listen to men and not Him. Let's continue here from the words of Jesus Himself:
Luke 21:12 "But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for My name's sake."
Luke 21:13 "And it shall turn to you for a testimony."
Luke 21:14 "Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer;"
Luke 21:15 "For [I] will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist."
Luke 21:17 "And ye shall be hated of all [men] for My name's sake."
Luke 21:18 "But there shall not an hair of your head perish." (KJV)
This testimony is also spoken here by Jesus in:
Matthew 24:14 "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." (KJV)
preached (Strong's 2784) to herald (as a public crier), especially divine truth (the gospel), preacher, proclaim or publish.
So by this testimony through the Holy Spirit when those that believe on him are delivered up to these synagogues of Satan, this testimony will go out before the entire world. This was told way back here in:
Joel 2:28 "And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see
Joel 2:29 "And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days I will pour out My spirit." (KJV)
This happened for an example to us as an example as here in:
I Corinthians 10:11 "Now these things happened unto [them] for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (KJV)
admonition (Strong's 3559) calling attention to, i.e. mild rebuke or warning.
So this is not just a bunch of stories and history, but for us to use especially during this end time. This is that final generation and we are living in the last hour. Are you prepared? Let's see an example of this that happened here in:
Acts 2:1 "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place."
Acts 2:2 "And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting."
Acts 2:3 "And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them."
Acts 2:4 "And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the spirit gave them utterance."
Acts 2:5 "And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven."
Acts 2:6 "Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language."
Acts 2:8 "And how hear [we] every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?"
Acts 2:16 "But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;"
Acts 2:17 "And it shall come pass in the last days, saith God, ‘I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh:
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:"
Acts 2:18 "And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy;" (KJV)
So here this example shows the evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit that every person from different nations around the world heard in the dialect from the place they were born. Man cannot do that, but dear God through His Spirit. This here too, as in Joel, was written to show you that example as
it happened so it will in the end. There is nothing new with dear God, no surprises. Have you read so that you can take the confidence in He and His Word that He has written for you so that you can be of help to Him? That way you are truly loving Him by doing for Him. Where do you think they will take you delivering you up for this testimony, for it is not your voice, but that of the Holy Spirit as here in:
Mark 13:11 "But when they shall lead [you], and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate; but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost." (KJV)
So again what hour will this be? Let's see here in:
Revelation 3:9 "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that [I] have loved thee."
Revelation 3:10 "Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, [I] also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." (KJV)
So the hour of temptation or the final hour when the falling away happens first before the gathering back to Jesus. The synagogues of Satan and those children that say they are Jews, that is when this goes down before He returns so that testimony goes before the entire world.
Finally, let His Word touch you. This is an important time you are living in and very critical. Just think you could be someone that He could use so that your loved ones, friends, family and anyone else that He gives you to help out. Are you someone that will be deceived, or that loves dear God. Remember His first and greatest commandment as here in:
20:1 "And God spake all these words, saying,"
(I.) 2."[I am] the LORD they God, Which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage."
20:2 "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me." (KJV)
Will be worshipping Him or the false Christ, son of perdition or the devil when he comes first sitting in God's spot or will you remain true to dear God? The choice is your and you make your own life both here and eternally. That love must come from within and dear God does not want anyone that does not care about Him and what He has written. As He said above, He will even give more strong delusion to those that do not listen to Him going after men's traditions and not Him. Stay with Him and He will give you the answers in the Word, and stay with it. He loves you for even trying. So help Him out so you can help others, too, so you can be somebody here He can use and rely and trust on. It takes action so show Him just as anyone can say they love or care about someone. Listen to Him directly, not me, nor any other man, but the Word Himself. He loves you for that.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Grace,
at Your service
