This ministry will watch the current world events and try to warn and enlighten God's people of the earliest possibilities of the fulfillments of endtime prophesies so that we will be ready to overcome the deceptions of false christs, false prophets, etc...
Dan 12:11-13 "And from the time that the daily [sacrifice] is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, [there shall be] one thousand two hundred and ninety days. "Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days."
Beginning of Last Generation
The Last Generation was identified to start with the signing of PLO-Israel Peace Treaty on 13th September 1993. Since all priests and Levites can only serve after they have attained 30 years of age, and also our Lord Jesus started His ministry after reaching the age of 30, we assume that a generation is 30 Jewish years.
Establishing End of Generation
1 Jewish year = 354.3668 days
30 Jewish years = 10,631 days
1 Gregorian year = 365.2424 days
So, 30 Jewish years = 29yr 39days
The end of the last generation will be 13th September 1993 + 29yr 39days bringing it to 22nd October 2022.
Establishing Stoppage to Call
The Stoppage of the 'Daily Call to Prayer' of the Muslims (Removal of the Dome on the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque) to Rapture is 1335 days, then the Stoppage must be before 22nd October 2022 less 1,335 days, bringing it to 25th February 2019.
[ Note - Rapture should be on or before 22nd October 2022, the end of the Last Generation ]
Establishing Beginning of WW3
Before the removal of the Dome on the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Temple Mount, the Antichrist must first conquer Israel and Jerusalem during World War 3. Assuming WW3 (which will claim 2 billions lives or 25% of the world population) with Relief and Recovery lasting at least a year, then WW3 must start lastest by the beginning of 2018.
Events according to Daniel
All the following events must begin before:-
1. Early 2018 - Beginning of World War 3. (4th Seal)
2. 25th February 2019 - Stoppage of the Call to Prayer on Temple Mount followed by the removal of the Dome and the mosque.
3. 27th March 2019 - Antichrist will sign the 7 years treaty for the Jewish Priesthood to build the Temple of God.
4. 11th May 2019 - Beginning to build the Temple of God. Christians rejecting the highly respected Antichrist and the Temple of God will be persecuted and killed by the people. (5th Seal)
5. 7th September 2022 - Dedication of the Temple of God to set up the Abomination of Desolation, with the Antichrist seated on the mercy seat declaring himself god. He will abolish the animal sacrifice so that all can worship him at home in front of the TV showing him or his image. This will be the beginning of the Great Tribulation for 45 days.
6. 22nd October 2022 - the last day of the Last Generation and Rapture must be on or before this date. (6th Seal)
7. Immediately after Rapture will be the Wrath of the Lamb (7th Seal)
Please view Daniel's chart attached
1Pet 4:7-10 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins." Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
Since the end is so near, let's obey and keep His words by loving one another as Jesus had loved us.
However, if a generation is 40 years (a slim possibility), then the end of the last generation is another 10 years down the road.
1993 Start of Last Generation, First Seal, Beginning of Sorrows with the abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty promoted by US President Clinton. Further heresies and deceptions were clearly seen in Counterfeiting the Holy Spirit-
1994 at Toronto
1995 at Pensacola
During worship services members behave as animals, scream and shout as wolves, dogs, etc. and hiss as snakes
1994 2nd Seal - Rwandan genocide killing almost 1 million in 3 months.
1997 3rd Seal - Financial crisis destroyed mainly third world nations with disparity of income getting greater and greater since then.
2000 Y2K - IT experts said that at midnight 2000 AD, the Y2K computer bug may set off ICBM, rockets, nuclear bombs, etc. to annihilate the whole world. Christians then were godly and expecting Rapture soon. The Lord did not appear as many Christian expected. Since then the tares revealed themselves as covetous, carnal, worldly and depraved Pastors, Christian leaders, Televangelists, etc.
After 2000 Church leaders lost their faith and became covetous, worldly, merciless, etc. US and EU threw out the bible from government, schools, public places, etc.
Rev 18:2-3 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, "Babylon the great (US and EU) is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons(Satanic), a prison for every foul spirit (deceptive and wicked), and a cage for every unclean and hated bird (heretic and abominable)! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury."
Heresies produce covetous, carnal, worldly and depraved pastors, leaders, televangelist, etc. and also gay bishops (Gene Robinson, a gay, was bishop from 2003-2010 and in 2006 he was treated for alcoholism).
1Tim 4:1-2 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,
In2009 Obama was President of US. He legalized sodomy, and then same sex marriage and with EU and UN Human rights, forced these abominations onto the rest of the world. Christians rejecting them are persecuted and jailed in US and also in former Christian nations.
In 2011, suddenly all the Arab nations went through the 'Arab Spring' with daily street protests, civil unrests, and they quickly developed into the 'Arab Uprising' leading to civil wars in many countries.
In 2013, ISIS set up the Islamic Caliphate comprising of Syria and Iraq, and together with Iran and Lebanon will form the king of the North (former Persian Empire). As soon as Israel and Egypt (king of the South) attack Iran then the Antichrist heading Iran and allies will annihilate the West in the coming World War 3.
2Tim 4:3-5 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Brethren, the next sign is World War 3. Are you ready to face it as His faithful servant with His protection, guidance, empowering, unction and pleasure or are you just ignoring this life threatening issue?
John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God."
Only those born of water and the Spirit can enter the kingdom of God
Born of Water
1Cor 6:9-11 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
It is only by obeying the truth that we are cleansed with the pure water (His words) of the corruption of this world. The evidence of sanctification is the sincere love of the brethren and the love for one another fervently with a pure heart
1Pet 1:22-23 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
Gal 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Unless we crucify the flesh in sanctification we cannot enter the kingdom of God. Repentance from the above sins with bring us back to His mercy and love, and our walk with Him again.
Rom 8:5-6, 13 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace... For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
Born of the Spirit
John 14:15-16,16:13 If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever... However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come."
If we keep His commandments, we will make the Holy Spirit (Jesus Christ) dwelling in us to be our King thus establishing the kingdom of God within us. The Spirit of truth will then guide and lead us into all truth and set us free from the snares and bondages of this world.
Luke 17:20b-21 "The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you."
Remember these brethren will enter the kingdom of God, Then He lifted up His eyes toward His disciples, and said: "Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God... But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful." (Luke:6.20, 35-36)
John 3:3, 4-6 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."
All humans are born in the flesh but we need to be born again of the Spirit so that we see the kingdom of God. How can we be born again? We only need to believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God to be saved or born again.
What must we believe in Jesus?
Mat 16;16, 21 Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."... From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.
Only after Peter confessed that Jesus was the Messiah (Christ) and the Son of God, did our Lord Jesus began to preach the gospel as follows:-
1. He will suffer many things,
2. He will be killed
3. On the third day He will resurrect from the dead
We must believe the above gospel that Jesus Christ the Son of God came in the flesh to suffer and killed and on the third day was raised from the dead. This is the gospel we must preach to all nations for the the remission of their sins.
Luke 24:46-47 Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem."
Luke 24:6-11 "He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, "saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.' " And they remembered His words. Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them.
The disciples did not believe Mary when she told them that the Lord had risen from the dead.
John 20:9 For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
Disciples born again with Spirit
John 20:20-21 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit."
Only when His disciples had believed the gospel that Jesus Christ will suffer, killed and rise again the third day did our Lord gave them the Holy Spirit and be born again.
Believers born again at Pentecost
Act 2:23-24, 37 "Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it."... Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
The devout Jews believed the gospel preached by the disciples and they received the Holy Spirit and were born again.
Brethren, are we preaching the gospel of Jesus or the watered down version of blessings and prosperity?
On 13th September 1993, US President Clinton managed to get President Rabin of Israel to sign the abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty requiring Israel to immediately cede to their enemies the land of:
1. Jericho, where God Himself destroyed its high walls and handed Jericho to Joshua at the start of his conquest of Canaan land;
2. Gaza Strip (land of the Philistine), where God helped the youth David killed Goliath and later the rests of the giants at the end of the Canaan Land conquest;
3. the West Bank by stages (Judea and Samaria), where the majority of the OT and NT events were recorded.
In 1948, Israel became a nation but as Aliyah increased the population, Yahweh gave them the whole of Israel after the 1967 six-day war. To give away any part of the promised land which God had given to them as their eternal inheritance is Unbelief and Rebellion. This Peace Treaty revealed the Unbelief of Israel in Yahweh and in the OT for it had reduced Him to just a myth.
1. Start of Last Generation
Mat 24:32-33 "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near -- at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place."
Rev 6:1-2 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, "Come and see." And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
Our Lord Jesus carries a sword, the word of God but this horseman carries a bow which is for shooting fiery darts of Satan to destroy our faith in Yahweh and His words.
Eph 6:16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
So when the elected President Clinton (crown given to him) set up the peace treaty (righteous work - riding on white horse), UN including all Christian nations (today, where are these Christian nations) supported this honourable and blessed peace effort (conquering and to conquer). However, this abominable peace treaty (fiery darts) destroyed the faith of Christians in Yahweh and His words.
Mat 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.... All these are the beginning of sorrows.
This abominable Peace Treaty was approved and supported by almost all Christians (many deceived). Many churches celebrated this dreadful occasion in prayers, thanksgivings and marches. Never before was there such a great deception involving the whole Christian world.
This abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty was the perfect synchronized End time starter of:
1. Last Generation,
2. First Seal,
3. Beginning of Sorrows (Mat 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21).
Brethren, the end is near. Are we still worldly and covetous in our earthly pursuit and rather stay complacent and lethargic to His call for holiness?
Rom 11:25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
Because the Jews rejected our Lord Jesus Christ, Yahweh gave them a spirit of stupor concerning spiritual things and they will be blind until Rapture. However, God has reserved the elects, who will be saved by grace.
Rom 11:5-7 Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
The elect Jews keep the laws and words of Moses to the latest and are not hypocrites who are blind. They will search scriptures to ensure that it is in God's words or will.
Mat 23:1-3 Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do."
Temple builds on Temple Mount?
The Temple Institute, Rabbis and Jewish leaders are all ready to build the Temple of God on the Temple Mount, which they believed is Mount Moriah or Mount Zion. They just accepted what was wrongly handed down to them (without checking the facts or truth) by traditions. Similarly, Christians today accept all types of wrong teachings (mainly heresies) as truth without verifying with the words of God.
But the elect Jews spent time searching scriptures to ensure that they are following truth.
What we call the Temple Mount, with 36 acres of land was actually Fort Antonia housing a legend of 6,000 Roman soldiers during the days of our Lord. Across the Kidron valley was the city of David where the temple of God was built on Mount Zion. In 691 AD, the Muslims built the Dome on the Rock on Fort Antonia and named it Haram al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) followed by Al-Aqsa Mosque in 705 AD.
All these years while the Dome on the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque was on Haram al-Sharif, the Temple of God lies in ruin on Mount Zion. It was only in the 17th Century that Haram al-Sharif was called the Temple Mount by the Jews.
What if Temple Mount is not the true site for Temple of God?
So when these elect Jews (the remnants) see that the Temple is built on the Temple Mount (the wrong site), then they know that this Temple is not God's Temple but the devil's. They will reject this temple and the Antichrist and will not serve nor worship him. So at Rapture, they will believe our Lord Jesus, the One whom they pierced.
Rom 11:23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
Rom 9:27 Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, The remnant will be saved."
Though the population of the Jews worldwide is about 14.5 million, yet only a remnant of 144,000 Jews (1%) will be saved at Rapture.
How can the Jews escape these Deceptions of the Antichrist?
Isa 2:3 Many people shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
The Jews and their spiritual leaders are looking forward to the building of the temple of God to herald in their Messiah when they finally will find the peace that they wanted so badly.
Rom 11:8-10 Just as it is written: "God has given them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear, to this very day." And David says: "Let their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a recompense to them. Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see, and bow down their back always."
Because the Jews rejected their Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ, Yahweh has given them a spirit of stupor (until Rapture) concerning spiritual things.
Since they do not believe nor read the NT, they will not be able to know that before Rapture, the coming temple of God will be the temple for the Antichrist (devil), since at this moment the physical body of every born again Christian is already the temple of God and God cannot have another type of Temple.
2Cor 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
The Antichrist (king of the North in Dan 11:40-43) will lead the former Persian Empire (Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon) to conquer Israel and the middle East, and later with it's allies (Russia and others) will conquer the rest of the world.
The Antichrist, likely an Iranian (Persian) and a Shia Muslim (12th Imam), having conquered Jerusalem for the Muslims will immediately be recognized as a prophet of Allah. He will prophesy to the Muslims that Allah is pleased and wants to dwell amongst them in the temple of God in Jerusalem. Immediately, the Muslims will happily remove both the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome on the Rock to make way for the temple of God.
Declaration of the Antichrist
The Antichrist having conquered the whole world will set up the 'One World Order' (OWO) to replace the ineffective UN.
To please and deceive unlearned Christians and Jews, the Antichrist as head of the 'OWO' will declare that:-
1. The Temple of God must be rebuilt by the Jewish Priesthood.
2. It must be rebuilt in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount.
3. The Temple of God will be the holy place where the whole world can come to worship God.
4. All Israelites (descendants of Jacob) can migrate back to Israel within these 7 years.
5. All non Israelites dwelling in Israel will be highly compensated if they migrate to the country of their choice, including US and EU.
6. Headquarter of 'OWO' will be in Jerusalem, the Capital of the world.
Brethren, unlearned Christians and Jews alike will be deceive to accept, honour and obey the Antichrist as God-sent King Cyrus (also a Persian and a King) to rebuilt the Temple of God and restore Israel. So how can the Jews escape such great deceptions?
Note: All the deceptions of the devil are targeted mainly at Christians including the building of this temple of God.
2Thess 2:1-4 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Before Rapture, the temple of God must be rebuilt. Since every born again Christian's body is the temple of God, God cannot dwell in this temple. The Antichrist (man of sin) will make use of this opportunity to deceive Christians and Israelites alike by sitting in it and proclaiming himself God.
1Cor 3:16-17 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
Who will build this temple?
Luke 21:20, 22 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near... For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."
God will ensure that Jerusalem will be conquered by the Antichrist during WW3 and he will deceive the Muslims to remove the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the rock to allow the Jewish Priesthood to build the temple of God for Allah to be worshipped by all mankind in the new 'One World Religion'.
Christians know this Deceptions
2Thess 2:5, 9-10 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?... The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
We thank God that our Lord Jesus had told us beforehand in His words and in the Epistles of the coming of the Antichrist and his deceptions in the building of the temple of God.
Jews want to build this Temple
Isaiah 2:2-4 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD's house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Because of the Israelites' rejection and crucifixion of their Messiah our Lord Jesus Christ, Yahweh has given all of them the spirit of stupor, so that they are blind to spiritual things. Since they reject truth in the NT, they will not realize that the coming temple of God is the devil's plan to deceive all mankind esp. Christians and Jews.
So how are the Jews going to overcome these deceptions?
Surprisingly, this writer (who normally is confusing with difficulties) manages to made this simple and easy to follow video. Worth seeing in order to understand the feelings of the Jews in the rebuilding of the third temple, Priesthood, sacrifices, etc.
Rom 1:18-31 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man -- and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions... And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
Brethren, God will reduce Christians who have lost the fear of the Lord to depravity such as perverts, liars, covetous, carnal, selfish, worldly, etc. so that we do not fear them (curses, demands, lies, etc.)
Just like the days of Noah
Gen 6:5-6 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
Because of the wickedness of mankind during the days of Noah, the Lord using the deluge to wipe out the whole human race except Noah and family,
Just like the days of Lot
Gen 13:13; 19:24-25 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD... Then the LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the LORD out of the heavens. So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.
Because of their wickedness, God annihilated both Sodom and Gomorrah except Lot and family.
Wickedness in the last days
2Tim 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money... proud, blasphemers... despisers of good... lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
Similarly the Lord will annihilate all these perverts, hypocrites and carnal, covetous, worldly and merciless Christians, who have lost the fear of the Lord, with the coming WW3 unless we repent.
Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
We thank God that the Spirit who raised our Lord Jesus from the dead is now given to every born again Christian, so that you will be able to live an abundant life.
John 10:10b "... I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
Below are some examples of living an 'Abundant life in Christ'.
Alive together with Christ
Eph 2:4-6 but God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
Into the Kingdom of the Son
Col 1:13-14 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed [us] into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
Equipping the saints to perfection
Eph 4:12-13 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
Renounce shameful things
2 Cor 4:1-2 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
Ability to correct the fallen
2Tim 2:22, 25-26 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart... in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.
Turn from darkness to light
Act 26:17-18 I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
Endurance as minister of God
2Cor 6:4-7 But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
Brethren, For though He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you. Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? -- unless indeed you are disqualified. (2Cor 13:4-5)
Mal 4:5 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD."
This was the day when our Lord Jesus was crucified and died on the cross.
Note - Elijah came as John the Baptist
Mat 26:50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
The Dreadful Day of the Lord
Mat 27:51a Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom;
At the death of our Lord Jesus, the veil was torn in two, signifying that Yahweh Himself had destroyed the temple of God thereby ending the 'Old Covenant' of Judaism with abolishment of the priesthood, temple sacrifices, worship, etc. This was the dreadful day of the Lord for all Israelites and Jews, for they are no longer the people of God since they had put themselves under the curse of shedding the innocent blood of the Messiah, Son of God.
Mat 27:25 And all the people answered and said, "His blood be on us and on our children."
The Great Day of the Lord
1Cor 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.
After His resurrection, our Lord Jesus having poured out His previous blood on the cross for all mankind, started the New Covenant by giving His Holy Spirit to dwell in His disciples thus making the physical body of every believer to become the temple of God.
Rocks praising the Lord
Mat 27:51b and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,
However, all His disciples mourned His death instead of thanking and praising God and rejoicing for the greatest love ever shown to mankind by the love of the Son of God dying on the cross. As God prophesied, since His disciples did not praise His great love for them on the cross, He made the rocks to praise Him by splitting.
Luke 19:38-40 saying: " 'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples." But He answered and said to them, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out."
The blood of animals
Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.
The sins of the saints of old (including Samuel) under Moses law were only covered by the blood of animals, so they were all held in Sheol until their redemption.
1Sam 28:11,15a Then the woman said, "Whom shall I bring up for you?" And he said, "Bring up Samuel for me."... Now Samuel said to Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?"
The precious blood of Jesus
Eph 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
All these saints need the precious blood of Jesus for the propitiation of their sins. At the crucifixion of our Lord, His precious blood replaced the blood of animals which by faith they offered to God. So at His resurrection, the saints too were raised from the dead by His Spirit and be with the Lord in heaven. Thank God that now when a born again Christian dies, he goes straight to heaven.
Mat 27:52-53 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
The love of our Lord Jesus during Good Friday and His resurrection
In both the OT (Lev 19:18) and NT (Mat 22:36), God commanded us to love your neighbour as yourself. After the last supper our Lord Jesus gave us a new commandment 'to love one another as He had loved us'.
John 13:34 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another."
How much did Jesus loved us?
1. Prayed till He sweated blood
Luke 22:43-44 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Our Lord prayed in unbearable pains and agony until He sweated blood to destroy the curse on the ground so that Christians can depend on Him as their Provider.
Gen 3:17b,19 "Cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life... In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return."
2. The thorns drew blood
Mat 27:29-30 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head.
The thorns drew blood from His head to destroy the curse on the ground so that we can rejoice at disappointments (thorns and thistles) for God is our Deliverer.
Gen 3:18 "Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field."
3. He was scourged
John 19:1 So then Pilate took Jesus and scourged Him.
Our Lord Jesus was scourged for the healing of our bodies and souls.
1Pet 2:24 _who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness -- by whose stripes you were healed.
4. He was crucified
Gal 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"),
Jesus was crucified on the tree to redeem us from the curse of the law.
5. Poured out blood after death
John 19:33-34 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
Only those who have committed unforgivable abominations poured out blood after dead (Jezebel), so the blood of our Lord Jesus can cleanse all sins.
6. He died
Heb 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Jesus died and having destroy the power of death, He has set Christians free from the fear of death.
7. He resurrected
1Cor 3:16-17 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
On the third day Jesus rose from the death. Having made us sinless by His precious blood, He set His Holy Spirit within us to seal and protect us.
Brethren, can we love one another as our Lord Jesus had loved us?
