Love Not Their Lives to Death (CW65)

     Coming World War 3

Rev 12:11  And they overcame him (Antichrist) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
    Having understood the power of the message of the cross and the great deceptions of the Antichrist masquerading as the angel of light, then we must surrender our bodies to God as living sacrifices.
Rom 12:1 I-12  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

1 Cor 15:51  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
    The Lord compares Christian's death to sleep so that when he wakes, he rejoices in heaven – so harmonious, serene, peaceful and glorious.

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.
    After the death of our Lord Jesus, He went to destroy the Devil, who had the power of death so that Christians no longer fear death because before any godly Christian tastes the horror of death (any knife, bullet, bomb or weapon touches the body), our Lord will empower him by making him oblivious to pains or take him back to heaven.
Mat 16:28  "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."

Mat 10:19-20  "But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you."
    Before we are brought to judgment, our Lord will make our physical bodies oblivious to pain or take us home before any of our hair is lost.
Luke 21:16b-18  "and they will put some of you to death. And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But not a hair of your head shall be lost."

Martyrdom of Stephen
Act 7:56-58a  and said, "Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!" Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; and they cast him out of the city and stoned him.
    When Stephen saw the Lord he became oblivious to pain before the multitudes ran at him and stoned him.

Faith of Paul in His words
2Tim 4:6-8  For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
    Paul was stoned, scourged and beaten many times and these strengthened his faith to finish the race. Our Lord will reward all who love His appearing and fearless of death, with crowns of righteousness.

Heb 11:24-26  By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.
Heb 11:35b-36a  Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. (Read Heb 11)
    Brethren, can we have similar faith to Moses, the prophets and Jesus' disciples, who loved not their lives by giving up earthly comforts, riches and powers and willing to suffer for their eternal rewards?

Word Of Their Testimonies (CW64)

      Coming World War 3

Rev 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
    Christians having seen the faithfulness and miracles of God before and during WW3, will still need the pure word of God (truth) and fulfilment of endtime prophecies to increase their faith and help them to overcome temptations and deceptions during the Great Tribulation.

John 16:4a  But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them."
    The Lord told us beforehand all these things (signs of His coming) in chronological order so that we knowing in advance the Devil's wicked schemes, plans and devices will be able to rejoice overcoming each of his deceptions one by one with confidence.

Beginning of Sorrows (Fourth Seal)
1. Tribal and religious civil wars
2. World War 3, pestilences, etc.
3. Fall of the Western powers 
4. Antichrist conquers Jerusalem
5. All extremists, terrorists killed
6. God's provision, deliverance, etc.
7. Greatest harvest of souls.

Period of Tribulation/Sorrows or Wraths of Satan-Rev13 (Fifth Seal)
8. New One World Order
9. One World Religion
10. Mark of the beast '666
11. Dome on the Rock removed
12. Building of temple of God 
13. Crucifixion of saints
14. Gospel preached to all

The Great Tribulation
15. Antichrist standing in Temple
16. All in Judaea flee to the mountains
17. Dedication of temple of God
18. Antichrist seated on the mercy seat
19. Antichrist's lying wonders 
20. False Christs
21. False prophets

The Rapture (Sixth Seal)
22. The Great Earthquake
23. Great heavenly blackout
24. Jesus coming at the Rapture 
25. Scene on Earth (all Israel saved)
26. Scene in Heaven

John 14:29  "And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe."
    Scriptures keep mentioning 'I have told you this before it comes to pass' and this is important for it is God's way of strengthening our faith in Him, His words, teachings and promises. In these last days, we must ensure that our congregations are well versed with endtime signs and events otherwise they will easily be deceived.

Blood Of The Lamb (CW63)

      Coming World War 3

Overcoming Satan
Rev 12:11  And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
    Here our Lord empowered us to overcome Satan and his deceptions.

Message of the Cross
1. His blood cleanses our sins
Rev 1:5b  To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood.
1 John 1:7  But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
    The day anyone sincerely accepts Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour, the blood of the Lamb cleanses him of all his sins along with the removal of all the associated curses and he then becomes a Christian.
2. Temple of God
Once his sins are cleansed, his physical body is then holy and the Holy Spirit will dwell in Him.
1 Cor 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.
    Every Christian is the temple of God and cannot be demonized or demon-possessed. God is holy and He will not share His holy temple with unclean spirits. Every Christian must ensure that his body is also the temple where the Holy Spirit is Lord and finally King, then the kingdom of God is within him.
3. Child of God
Every Christian then becomes the child of God and no one including Satan can hurt him.
Rom 8:15-16  For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
    Since we are children of God, the Devil cannot hurt or harm us. Which father will let the enemies harm his beloved children? Therefore, do not fear the Devil nor give him the glory.
4. Delivered from the power of Satan
Col 1:12-13  giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
.. but deliver us from evil is wrongly interpreted to the evil one. Jesus has already delivered us from the evil one including idolatry, witchcraft and animism the day we are saved. The love of money (covetousness) is the root of all evil and we only need to be delivered from the evil in us by crucifying our old man (flesh). We can even cast Satan out in Jesus Name. So why fear him.
    Do not glorify Satan anymore, as though he is still controlling you and messing up your lives.
5. The Name of Jesus
God then allows us to use the power of the Name of Jesus to:-
1. Cast out demons
2. Heal the sick
3. Perform miracles and;
4. Pray, intercede, praise, thank, fellowship and love God.
    Brethren, we have the Name of Jesus. Please do not misuse the blood of Jesus to cast out demons. Otherwise, we are using the bow to shoot bullets; making our prayers and teachings ineffective.

These are some basic Christian doctrines. Feed on His pure words (bible). Hold fast to sound doctrines and avoid worldly wisdom, distorted truth and heresies.

Brethren, the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Cor 1:18)

God's Eternal Plan (CW62)

       Coming World War 3

Fall of Lucifer
Isa14:12-14  "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'
    Lucifer, also known as Satan or the Devil rebelled against God for he wanted to be God and to sit on the throne of God, so that all will worship him as God.

Throne Given to Overcomers
Rev 3:21  To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
    So after the fall of Lucifer and before the foundation of the world, God chose weak and fragile men (not angels), created in His image, to be predestined to sit on His throne on the condition that they can overcome the wiles of Satan.

Predestined 'Word made Flesh'
1Pet 1:19-20  but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.
    God predestined that the Word was made in the form of a man and that through His sufferings as the Lamb of God, He will be able to help men overcome the wiles of Satan.
Heb 2:18  For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Man Created in His Image
Gen 1:27; 2:16-17  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
    God created men in His own image and gave them their free will. Men failed miserably when tempted by the Devil. Since then man worshiped idols and commit all types of abominations. Even the descendants of Abraham under the Mosiac Covenant, with Yahweh displaying His presence, miracles, blessings, signs and wonders, yet they rebelled against Him.

The New Covenant
Rom 10:9  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
    With this new covenant, if anyone (not angels) chooses to believe the gospel (His death, redemption, resurrection, etc.) then he will be saved with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Sons of God
Rom 8:16  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs -- heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
    It was predestined that whoever suffers with Jesus, he will be counted worthy to be joint heir with Christ.
Gal 3:26  For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Love for Jesus
John 14:23  Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him."
    All Christians are called to love God. Almost every Christian will sing, praise, worship and declares that he loves Jesus, but many refuse to keep His word of forgiving his enemy, merciful, love one another, blameless, generous, kind, holy, humble, free from heresy, etc.
    Even though these Christians choose to love Jesus, yet they did not keep His words, so God will not choose them for they do not love Him.
John 14:24  "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me."

Anointed Endtime Teachers (CW61)

    Coming World War 3

Dan 12:4  "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."

Uniqueness of Endtime which surprisingly has been fulfilled during these two decades.
1. many shall run to and fro
    Since 1993 the start of the last days (U06), the construction of good expressways, high-speed trains and big planes has made travelling long distances cheap and fast. The competitive travel industry had made traveling overseas for holidays affordable to those in the West and also the developing nations. Travelling long distances daily to work is the norm, which was impossible in the early days on horses.
2. knowledge shall increase
    During these 25 years, with the help of supercomputers, knowledge is so advanced that we have discovered and also with understanding many mysteries of God's creation - in physics, DNA, nanotechnology, medical fields, space travel, etc. Today we are boasting of extending our life span to 200 years soon and researchers are competing to improve Artificial Intelligence.

Anointed Endtime Vessels
Brethren, we are living in the most interesting last days when God will reveal His truth to His people. Let's prepare ourselves to be His vessels and channels of blessings to our beloved brethren. Since God is righteous and just, He can only reveal His truth in accordance to His words.

John 14:15-17a, 26  "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 — the Spirit of truth.... But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
    Unless we keep His commandments (the sign of our love for Him), we will not get the anointing of the Spirit of truth to enable us to understand His signs, truth, will, prophecies and teachings.

What are His commandments?
1. 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."
2. Mat 5:44  "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you"
3. Mat 6:19  "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth..."
(We will be judged by hoarding His money or talent in Mat 25:24-30)
4. Mat 7:12  "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."

These are only a few of His commandments. The Endtime parable of the sheep and goats (please read Mat 25:31-46) reveals the mistakes, laziness, weaknesses, lovelessness and hypocrisy of Endtime Christians for our repentance. So please brethren, be His beloved sheep.

Brethren, our Lord will only reveal the truth of Endtime Signs and prophecies to all those who love Him and have kept His words and commandments. Sorry for those worldly, carnal, covetous and sensual pastors, Christian leaders and hypocrites, for they do not have truth in them. Repent, and you will find His love and truth again.

Doing God's Work (CW60)

       Coming World War 3
 
With World War 3 around the corner and a quarter of all mankind facing death caused by weapons of mass destruction, famines, starvation, pestilences and deadly diseases, only God can protect and nourish us. Jesus had done everything for us and we only need to believe Him so that He can help and deliver us.

Just Believe, That's All
John 6:27-29  "Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him." Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
    Our Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples to labor for food leading to everlasting life. They are to labor to believe in Jesus Christ whom God had sent.

Brethren, we have to labour to believe Him until we go back to Him in heaven:-
1. He is our Savior - we do not need to seek salvation by good works. Our sins are cleansed by His death on the cross and we only need to repent: So confess your sins
2. He is the Almighty God - we do not need to trust and worship idols or men. Nothing is impossible to Him in nourishing, helping, comforting and protecting you.
3. He is our King of kings - we are King's kids: The Devil cannot harm us
4. He is our Father God - as children of God, Satan and his demons cannot harm us
5. He is our Healer - we do not need medicine for the healing of wounds, sicknesses and pains.
6. He is our Provider - He will nourish us for the duration and beyond the whole period of World War 3 (lasting possibly a year) when everyone will be starving.
7. He is faithful to His word - we only need to keep our part of the covenant and He will fulfill His promises.
8. He is Merciful - He will always forgive those with humble and repentant hearts.
9. He keeps His Covenant - we will know where we stand in His sight for He honours His promises.
10. He is our Peace
John 14:22  "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
    When we face WW3 and the horrific destructions, we can trust Him enough to allow His words to minister to us so that we can find His peace within us.

He loves us above All
Rom 8:35,38-39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?.. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Faith with Works
Jam 2:26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
    Brethren, do we really believe our Lord Jesus enough (just a few examples above), that we can walk out our faith in Him. All those who love Him will believe Him and they will walk out their faith in Him.

Just Trust and Obey for there is no other way.

How Jesus Rebuilt the Temple of God ? (CW59)

      Coming World War 3

John 2:19  Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." Then the Jews said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?" But He was speaking of the temple of His body.
    There are so many speculations on when the law (Judaism) ended and the period of grace began. Our Lord told the Jews that He would rebuild the temple of God in 3 days.

Destruction of the Temple
Mark 15:37-38  And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last. Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
    At the death of our Lord Jesus on the cross, the veil of the temple of God was torn. At God's departure from the Most Holy Place, the temple was discarded (destroyed) by Him, resulting in the end of Judaism.

At His death on the cross, all these items were fulfilled by Him:-
1. Bronze Altar - Sacrificed as the Lamb of God
2. Bronze Laver - Obeyed God and was baptised by John the Baptist.
3. Table of Showbread - He was the Bread of life.
4. Golden Lampstand - He was the Light of the world.
5. Golden Altar - He was offered as sweet incense to God.
6. Ark of Testimony consisted of
  a) Ten Commandments - Word of God
  b) Aaron's rod - Perfect Priest
  c) Book of the law - Word of life
7. Mercy Seat - Jesus is so merciful that even at His death, He showed these mercies to us:-
a) He tasted death for us
Heb 2:9  But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
   Since all men fear death, our Lord Himself tasted death on our behalf so that we will not taste the horror of death.
b) Delivered us from Fear of Death
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.
    Through His death, He destroyed the devil's power of death, to release Christians from the fear of death.

Discarded Temple
    Though the temple was discarded by God at the death of Jesus, yet God did not tear it down for the sake of saving the devout Jews coming back from a distant land to observe the Jewish feasts. In Acts 1-4, thousands of Jews were saved, and Apostle Paul rushed back to Jerusalem (Act 18:21) for the feast to evangelize the devout Jews.

Temple of God Rebuilt in 3 Days
Luke 24:1, 6-7  Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared... "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.'"
   At His Resurrection (three days after His death), He rebuilt the temple of God with all the 7 items within, thereby replacing the discarded Herod's Temple.

Born Again Christian
John 20:21-22  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."
    Then Jesus gave His disciples the Holy Spirit to become born-again Christians. Every Christian can start to build his own temple of God within his body on His foundation.
