Building Up Our Faith (CW80)

     Coming World War 3

Told you beforehand
Mark 3:23  "But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand."
    Our Lord Jesus told us the end time prophecies so that when we see them being fulfilled one by one, we can then walk by faith in His words or prophecies and not by sight.
John 14:29  "And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe."

Prophecies Fulfilled
1993  Plo-Israel Peace Treaty started the Last Generation and also the 1st Seal with the deception of Jews and Christians worldwide.
1994  Rwandan Genocide fulfilled the 2nd Seal with half a million killed within 3 months.
1997  Since the Asian Financial Crisis or 3rd Seal, the gap in income has been growing rapidly yearly and the coming food crisis or famines.
2010  The Arab Spring affected the whole Arab Muslim world with some developing into civil wars, such as in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, etc. fulfilling 'Nations against nation' in Mat 24:7

Prophecies to be fulfilled soon
World War 3 - the 4th Seal or 'kingdom against kingdom' with the natural disasters of plagued, earthquakes, etc. killings 1/4 of mankind. During this time of extreme suffering, many will be saved because of the love and care of Christians and the divine provisions and healings. A time when the new converts are properly discipled to face the coming deceptions of the Antichrist or 5th Seal. This will fulfill the period of the beginning of sorrows in Mat 24:4-8.

Period of Tribulation
After WW3 - the 5th Seal, a time when the whole world including unlearned Christians, will be deceived by the Antichrist and his false prophets (10 kings).
1. Rapid recovery from wars, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc.,
2. Everyone is secure and happy with good jobs, homes, etc.
3. Kings are godly, righteous, caring, humble, etc.,
4. 'One World Religion' is formed to prevent future religious wars,
5. 'Dome on the Rock' and Mosque removed by Muslims themselves,
6. Temple of God is being built so that God can rule this world,
7. Jerusalem is World's Capital housing the headquarters of 'OWO'
8. King (Antichrist) is merciful giving rebels the chance to repent.
9. Rebels martyred resulting in the preaching of the gospel to all.
    As the temple of God is being built, this will be a difficult time for Christians. Unless Christians are properly discipled according to our Lord Jesus teachings, they will not be able to overcome the deceptions of the Antichrist.

Mat 24:9  "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake."
    Because of the success of the great deceptions of the Antichrist, watchful and learned disciples will have to go underground to worship the Lord. The world will persecute and execute all Christians going against the doctrines of the 'One World Religion' which will deny the 'Word made flesh' or the divinity of our Lord Jesus and the power in the blood of the Lamb.
Note  This is only the Tribulation, with the Great Tribulation yet to come

Jesus' Signs in Matthew 24
    Brethren, our Lord carefully taught His disciples giving great detail in Mat 24, so that we can enjoy His end time teachings. As each sign is being fulfilled, our faith in Him, His words and prophecies will slowly increase till we begin to look forward to the next sign to be fulfilled. By the time the temple of God is completed, we will be ready to face the Great Tribulation.

From now on, let's study the signs taught by Jesus in Matthew 24, together.

Christians Facing WW3 (CW79)

     Coming World World 3

Carry Out Great Exploits
John 14:12   "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father."
    Our Lord Jesus promised us that if we have faith in Him, He will help us to do greater works than what He had done.

1. Jesus Walk on Water
    Our Lord defiled nature by walking on water. During WW3 though there will be no water and electricity in the whole area, I can believe that for our premises God will miraculously provide water and electricity so that food can be cooked to feed the needy and hungry.

2. Feeding the Thousands
    Brethren, I believe that our Lord will keep filling up our empty food containers/fridges with food to feed and nourish all those coming to us for help.

3. Jesus Healing the Sick
   I believe that the sick and those wounded in the war will find healing after prayers in Jesus' Name.

4. Jesus had Compassion
    When we see God's mercy and love for those pitiful souls, the joy of the Lord within us will encourage us to give our last ounce of strength to serve and care for them with love.

Brethren, within days, the majority of those, who have witnessed the miracles of God in preserving them through WW3 and our love and concern for their welfare, will believe and accept our Lord Jesus. Thereafter, we must disciple them to abide in His word to help them to overcome the deceptions of the Antichrist.

Note  When we believe His end time prophecies, then as WW3 develops we will rejoice in seeing its fulfillments. Our faith will be further increased and we will hold onto His words and other prophecies to guide us through the Tribulations before Rapture.
Dan 11:33   "And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering.

Christians Facing WW3 (CW78)

       Coming World War 3

Preparing For World War 3
Dan 11:32   "Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong*, and *carry out great exploits."
    Christians, who know their God, love the Lord by keeping His words. They will be led by the Spirit of truth to know the truth about God, His words, will, plans, time and seasons and endtime prophecies and events in these last days.
   They know that WW3 is around the corner and mankind will suffer greatly from insecurities, pains, sicknesses, wounds, sufferings and fear of theft, robberies and death, starvation, loss of loved ones, and this is the ripe time and ready for harvest.
    They know that Christians have been entrusted with the responsibility of comforting, caring, feeding, evangelizing and discipling them for the coming trials and tribulations just before Rapture.

Discipling New Converts
Brethren, please prepare yourself, for faith without works is dead, by
1. good knowledge of the gospel of grace
2. understanding His word, will, ways and works
3. keeping His commandments to receive the Spirit of truth
4. good understanding of End time prophecies and signs
5. believing that His miracles, signs and wonders in both OT and NT are also meant for today
6. learning to serve by helping out in charitable homes.
7. praying, fasting and meditating on His word for His revelations and truth.

Brethren, when you abide in His words and become His disciple, God will use you mightily to evangelize and disciple His new converts and children.
John 8:31-32   Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Christians Facing WW3 (CW77)

      'Coming World War 3

Horrific World War 3
Rev 6:7-8  When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see.":So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth."
    WW3 will be the last war before Rapture. With a quarter of men killed, a limited amount of weapons of mass destruction will be deployed during World War 3.
   WW3 will see the destruction of power plants, factories, transportation, farmlands, and warehouses. Without power, fuel and transportation, everything will grind to a halt. Food will be left to rot in farmlands, warehouses and places of storage.
   Along with the natural calamities of great earthquakes, huge tsunamis, pestilences, plagues and famines causing extreme food shortages, everyone will starve. This starvation will be worse than that during the siege of Jerusalem where parents ate their babies and little children.
    Even animals (beasts of the earth) will increase man's sufferings by passing on the plagues and pestilences such as Ebola, Black death, Avian flu, Nipah and deadly viruses to contribute to the killing of a quarter of mankind  
Complete Protection from God
   Since all those killed will be cast into Hades, I thank our beloved Father God that He is faithful to His word by giving us complete protection during WW3 as promised in Psalm 91.
    As for His vengeance against the depraved, wicked and covetous Christian leaders for destroying the faith of their congregations and many Christians with their wrong doctrines and heresies, God will use WW3 to cleanse His church by killing all of them. Repent otherwise death awaits you in the coming WW3.
   During WW3, God will prepare Christians and new converts to overcome the coming trials and tribulations to become the bride of the Lamb.
I Pet 4:17  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?

Your Choice before WW3 (CW76)

     Coming World War 3

Rom 2:4  Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering,* not knowing that *the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
   Just because God loves us more than anything else in this world and that He sent Jesus to be the propitiation of our sins and have made us to be His children, it does not mean that He will close an eye to our sins and unrighteousness.
   He is a just, righteous and impartial God. He is faithful to His words. He is not a Liar and neither can He sin. His justice is always based on His words and promises.

Rom 2:5  But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
    The carnal, stubborn, rebellious, heretic and lawless against Him and His words will face His Wrath at judgment.
Note Carnal, covetous, rebellious, heretic and unrepented Christians will all be killed in WW3 and then cast into Hades.

Rom 2:6-7  who "will render to each one according to his deeds": eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality;
    The obedient and godly Christians, who really Him, faithfully keep His words by their patient, consistent and continuous good works. God will joyfully reward them the honour of even being seated on His throne as the bride of the Lamb.
Note  Godly Christians will be preserved and empowered during World War 3 so that they will be bold and fearless in picking up the wounded, diseased, starving and dying from the streets. With the anointing of the Holy Spirit, they will nourish, care, comfort and evangelize the wounded, distressed and dying. Each of them will then disciple these new converts by the hundreds or even thousands.

Rom2:8-9  but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek;
    The choice is yours and only you alone can choose your own future - to enjoy the Father's bliss, presence and life or the sufferings, anguished and death in the Lake of Fire.
   All Christians (both Jews and Gentiles) are judged according to their works in Christ Jesus
Rom 2:10-11  but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For there is no partiality with God.

Kingdom Against Kingdom (CW75)

       Coming World War 3

Mat 24:6-7  "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places."
    With wars breaking out everywhere (WW3), famines, plagues and numerous great earthquakes with huge tsunamis, tens or hundreds of millions will be killed worldwide, as though it is the end of the world. These events are similar to the fourth Seal.

Rev 6:7-8  When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a pale (green) horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
    These two riders are empowered by the green (Islamic power of the Antichrist) horse or the beast, the eighth conqueror of Israel.
    The first rider is Death and following him is Hades. A quarter of mankind killed in this period of WW3 will be cast to Hades or hell.

1 Pet 4:17  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
    I believe God will remove all these tares so that Christians will be set free from heresies and be able to know and obey the truth in His words. Then He can prepare us to become the bride of the Lamb for the rapture.

Mat 13:30, 38, 41-42  "Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, 'First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.'... The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one... The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth."
    So far, the Lord has allowed the tares to grow with the wheat since Y2K (Year2000), but He will use WW3 to harvest the tares and cast them to hell.

1. Sons of the wicked one
    These are the Antichrists (depraved pastors, prophets, televangelists, leaders, who are apostates) in 1John 2:18-19; Heb 6:4-6; 1Tim 4; etc.
1 Tim 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,
2. all things that offend
    Worldly, carnal, sensual and covetous pastors, leaders, among others.
Col 3:5-9  Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
3. Practicing lawlessness
    Lawlessness is doing things against His words e.g., no love nor compassion, unforgiving, ignoring widows, orphans, poor, building own empire instead of His Kingdom, worldly, carnal, covetous, unholy, etc.
Mat 7:21-24  "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Judging His House (CW74)

        Coming World War 3
1 Pet 4:17-18  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God. Now "If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?"
    The wickedness, lawlessness and abominations against God make the West (so-called Christian nations), unliveable to bible-believing Christians. God uses WW3 to judge the world starting from His house (church and countries). All apostates and heretics, abominable, unmerciful, lawless, carnal and covetous pastors, prophets, leaders and televangelists will be killed. God will also judge and kill all extremists, murderers, terrorists and jihadists.

Rev 14:6-7  Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water."
    As nations after nations are dragged into WW3, godly and bible believing Christians will rise up to help, care and miraculously feed all those affected. The love of Christians and the miracles of God will convince the heathens including Muslims to believe in our Lord Jesus Christ. This endtime harvest just before the rapture will be the greatest ever. So brethren, be ready to be involved in His endtime harvest.

Rev 14:8  And another angel followed, saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
    The mighty US and the West will be defeated because through UN they force their abominable human rights (especially sodomy) upon all nations.

Judges 2:14-15  And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies. Wherever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for calamity, as the Lord had said, and as the Lord had sworn to them. And they were greatly distressed.
    Similarly, God will judge and fight against the abominable West by allowing the jihadists to sabotage their own countries (West). Nations after nations will be handed over to the Muslim conquerors.

Mat 24:7  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
A quarter of mankind will be killed during this period of the beginning of sorrows or the Fourth Seal.

Brethren, repent from worldliness, carnality, covetousness, which are the results of distorted truth and heresies for 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. (1 Pet 4:7-10)

Many Countries Overthrown (CW73)

      Coming World War 3

Dan 11:41  "He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon."
   When the Antichrist called 'Jihad- against the West for the massacre of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iranian Muslim civilians by missiles, bombs, from the US Fifth Fleet, Muslims worldwide will rise up. After the Antichrist had conquered Israel and Jerusalem, killing and scattering the Jews, he will then proceed to attack the neighbouring Arab Sunni nations.

Many Countries Overthrown
There will be worldwide condemnation for this great atrocity against mankind, with Russia, China, India and many nations sending their forces to help and rescue Iran from the powerful and invincible West.
   Many Muslim nations too will join forces with the Antichrist to fight against the West - the big bully. These will be the former Russian Muslim nations together with Turkey, Yemen, Libya, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Indonesia, and others.
   But Muslim nations which still support and fight alongside the West, will face rebellions, and the people will try to overthrow their governments for Iran. These will include Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Algeria, Morocco, etc.

The Kingdom of Jordan
Jordan is called the Hashemite Kingdom, because it is ruled by the Hashemite dynasty, which claims descent from the Islamic prophet, Mohammed. The Hashemite dynasty itself is named after Mohammed's great grandfather, Hashim. Jordan occupied the biblical lands of the Edomites, Moabites and part of the Ammonites. The rest of Ammon is in Saudi Arabia. Since the Hashemite king of Jordan is the direct descendant of Mohammed, the Antichrist will respect him as appointed by Allah. Jordan will not be attacked by the Antichrist.

Egypt Ransacked and Destroyed
Dan 11:42-43  "He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels."_
   The Antichrist will ransack Egypt causing great destruction and many deaths. Saudi Arabia which is responsible for producing many terrorist groups (like Al Qaeda and ISIS) that caused so much sufferings to mankind will be annihilated too. These groups are also responsible for persecuting and murdering many Christians (God's children), so this will be God's vengeance.

Warning – Since World War 3 is the last war before the rapture, Eze 38-39, Zac 12-14 and others found in the OT (except for Daniel) are mainly wars and events meant for the Jews only.

Judgement of Jerusalem (CW72)

   'Coming World War 3

Dan 11:41  " He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon."
   On 13 July 1878 at the Treaty of Berlin, the only British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli with Hebrew lineage, secured the control of the Middle East and Palestine. Immediately, he allowed Jews to buy land in Palestine. This started the call of 'Aliyah' back to rebuild Zion, the nation of Israel. Palestine then was mainly desert and wasteland, made desolate by God to give the land its Sabbath with a small population of 300K and only 5K Jews.
    Since 1878, when God called them to rebirth the nation of Israel, these rebellious Jews rejected His call and only a handful came back. Less than 20K out of 10 million of Jews in 1900 AD. God caused pogroms in Europe starting from 1880s in Russia. After millions of Jews were massacred by the Nazis in WW2, more Jews began to go back. By 1948 there were only 0.5 million Jews against 1.2 million Arabs in Palestine.
   Note: 2 million Jews entered the Promised Land with Joshua, yet Yahweh gave them the Promised Land gradually for fear of the wild animals.
   With such a small population of Jews, Yahweh could only give them a small piece of Palestine.
So in 1948, the British gave Israel the wilderness and deserts to form the new nation. Since then, the Arabs tried to drive the Israelites into the sea but God gave Israel victories after victories against great odds. In 1967, after the six-day war, God finally gave Israel all the Promised Land, which the feet of Joshua to King David had trodden upon, as their eternal inheritance.

Eze 15:6-8  "Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 'Like the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so I will give up the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 'and I will set My face against them. They will go out from one fire, but another fire shall devour them. Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I set My face against them. 'Thus, I will make the land desolate, because they have persisted in unfaithfulness,' says the Lord GOD."
   The Jews saw God's deliverance again and again since 1948, and the fulfillment of prophecies that the deserts will become fertile orchards and farmlands. Yet, in 1993, they were faithless by signing the abominable Israel- PLO Peace Treaty. This Treaty required Israel to immediately cede Jericho (walls tumbled down), Gaza strip (David killed Goliath of Gaza) and the West Bank to its enemies. Giving away these lands showed that the Jews were atheists for they had reduced Yahweh and the OT to myths.

Luke 21:20-22, 24  "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled...And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
   So, God will allow the Antichrist to conquer Israel and Jerusalem as the consequence of His vengeance against their abominable Israel-PLO Peace treaty, Unbelief, Gay Parades, fear of US and UN but not Yahweh, etc. Only those who are obedient to His words by fleeing into the mountains will keep their lives.

Are you Ready for WW3? (CW71)

        Coming World War 3

Beginning of World War 3
Dan 11-40  "At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through."
    As soon as the king of the South (Egypt supported by Saudi Arabia and the West) attacks Iran (king of the North), with Israel attacking Iran's nuclear sites, the Antichrist leading Iran, Iraq and Syria with demonic powers will send their missiles, fighter jets, bombers, to attack all Western military bases in the Middle East. Their numerous battleships will target the fifth Fleet. This is the beginning of World War 3.

Dan 11:30  "For ships from Chittim (Western nations) shall come against him; therefore, he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage. So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant."
   The US Fifth Fleet stationed in the Arabian Sea will immediately send their missiles, bombers, fighter jets, to attack Iran to protect their military bases. The crafty Antichrist with satanic powers will divert all their enemies' missiles and bombs to populated cities killing hundreds of thousands of his own Iranian civilians. The whole world will blame and hate the West for targetting and killing so many innocent Muslim civilians. These will deceive all Muslim nations, including Russia, China, India, and many other nations to right the wrong by fighting along Iran extending WW3.
   The Antichrist will then call 'Jihad' against Christians (holy covenant) and the West. Muslims living in the West will be so devastated that they will sabotage and destroy their adopted countries. Military bases, arsenal and weaponry, power stations, storage, factories, businesses, ships, hospitals, high-rise buildings, transportation, cars, individuals, and everything in sight will be targeted. With the West in self-destruct mode, the Antichrist with its powerful allies will easily conquer all the neighbouring nations.

World War 3 in Matthew 24
Mat 24:6-7a  "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom."
   Rumours of wars will come true and become wars. Rumours have been around for many years that Israel will attack Iran's nuclear sites. Iran had declared that the first nuclear bomb will be used to annihilate Israel and the second to annihilate Saudi Arabia. These wars will be intense and extensive worldwide so that it will be like the end of the world but the end is not yet. This is definitely World War 3.

World War 3 in the fourth Seal
Rev 6:6-7  When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
   With the first three Seals fulfilled, we are expecting the fourth Seal, where a quarter of all men will be killed by wars, hunger, pestilences and plagues from animals. This must be World War 3.

So this 'Endtime War' in Dan 11, Mat 24:6-7, and the fourth Seal is the same 'World War 3, the last war before the rapture, when everyone will be living in peace and security (as found in 1 Thess 5:1-4).

Humility in God's Plan (CW70)

        Coming World War 3

Mat 18:4   "Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
    To be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven will require our humility in our complete obedience as little children to Him and His words, so that we can be transformed into His image. Let us look into the humility of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke 2:7-12  And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
    Our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God came in great humility as the sacrificial Lamb:-

1. Born in an animal shed as the Lamb of God.
John 1:14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

2. Covered in swaddling cloths as the sacrificial Lamb – all newly born lambs meant for sacrifices are wrapped with swaddling cloths to prevent them from blemishes.

3. Lay in the manger as food and water for His sheep – the manger is used for holding the feed and possibly water for feeding the sheep and also other livestock.
    John 6:48  "I am the bread of life."
    Our Lord Jesus is the bread of life and the living water and for our spiritual food. We only need to believe, read, understand and keep His words.

4. Shepherds testified the Birth of the Lamb of God
Luke 2:11-12   "For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger."
   The shepherds were joyfully testifying about the birth of the Messiah (Christ) as the Lamb of God drawing parallels to the birth of their lambs.

Jam 4:6  But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
    No wonder our Lord Jesus had the extra grace because of His complete obedience to the Father. His three and a half years of ministry filled with exceptional signs and wonders, love, compassion, and humility had convinced many Jews to accept Him as the Messiah.
    Brethren, we too can get this extra grace from our Lord when we humble ourselves to obey His words and will.
    Phil 2:8-9  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

John 13:1 4-15  "If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you."
    Jesus was born to be a servant in the stable. He served men all His life and even washed the feet of His disciples. Finally, He offered Himself as a faithful servant to men by dying on the cross bearing their sins.

Col 3:12  Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

He Gives More Grace (CW69)

        Coming World War 3

Jam 4:6  But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
    What are these more or extra grace that He will give to us on the condition that we are humble?

Predestination of Saving Grace
Eph 1:3-4, 7  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will...In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
    God before the foundation of the world had already destined that the Word was to be made flesh (in the Person of Jesus Christ) for the salvation of all men (not angels).
Note -there are two fallen creations - men and the fallen angels.

God's Plan of Salvation
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."
    God has given a fair chance to every man who is humble enough to believe the gospel and accept Jesus as the Christ will be saved. When God seals him with the Holy Spirit of redemption, he becomes a born-again Christian.
Eph 1:7, 13  In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

More Grace to the Humble
John 14:15-17a, 26; 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— 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... 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.
The OT and NT are covenants of God. When we fulfill our part of the covenant, He will fulfill His part, for He is faithful to His words and commitment. He is also a righteous God and He cannot and will not sin.
    So when a Christian keeps His commandments, God will have to admit that he loves God and He will grant him another Helper, the Spirit of truth, who will guide him into all truth so that he is free from the bondage of this wicked world, deceptions, lies, heresies.
(John 8:32  "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.")
The Spirit of truth will also tell (teach) him the end time signs and prophecies.

Grace overcomes the Flesh
2Cor 6:1,4-10   We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain... But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes... by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God... as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

Jesus' Gospel of Grace (CW68)

      Coming World War 3

Mat 16:15-16,21  He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" 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.
    It was only after His disciples were able to believe and accept Him as the Messiah the Son of God that our Lord started to show them the gospel of grace with Him, coming as the sacrificial Lamb of God.

Gospel of Jesus
Luke 24:46-47  Then He (Jesus) 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."
    The gist of the gospel that our Lord Jesus instructed His disciples to preach:-
1. Jesus was the Christ or Messiah or God was made flesh
2. Jesus suffered
3. He was crucified as the Lamb of God
4. He rose from the dead on the third day, having overcome death, so that Christians can have eternal life with Him.

Gospel of grace to Jews by Peter
Acts 2:22-24,36   "Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know— 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... Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
    On Pentecost, Peter preached the gospel of Jesus to the Jews and 3,000 devout Jews repented and became Christians. Later on, Peter preached the same gospel to the Gentiles in Act 10.

Gospel to Gentiles by Peter
Act 10:34, 39-40, 42  Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality... And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly... And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead.

Gospel of Paul to All
Act 17:2-3  Then Paul, as his custom was, went in to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and demonstrating that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I preach to you is the Christ."
    Paul preached the same gospel as Peter to both Jews and Gentiles.

Same Gospel of Grace to All
Eph 3:5-6   which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets; that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel,
    God gave to the Apostles the same gospel of grace for both Jews and Gentiles.

Walk by Faith (CW67)

     Coming World War 3

Perfection of our faith
James 2:22  Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

There are three levels of faith, with the lowest being:

1. Seeing is Believing.
Men only believe what they see, including the disciples of Jesus.
John 20:29  Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

2. Not seen and yet Believe
1 Pet 1:6-9  In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.

3. Faith in His words and not sight
2 Cor 5:6-8  So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
    When we walk by faith and not by sight, we are spiritual and are no longer interested in our earthly lives but set our minds on the eternal future with the Lord.
Phi 1:21  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Perfect Faith of Apostle Paul
Roman 8:37-39  Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 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.
    With our faith perfected, we can overcome by rejecting the Antichrist on the mercy seat as god and discounting all his signs and lying wonders as demonic.

Abomination Of Desolation (CW66)

       Coming World War 3

Mat 24:15-16  "Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains,"

Abomination is Satan, Antichrist and whatever is abominable in the Bible.
Desolation is the complete destruction of our faith in God, Jesus, His words, promises and teachings.
    In the last days, the Abomination of Desolation is the Antichrist himself (Satan), instead of any abominable idol.
    When we see the Head of One World Order (the Antichrist), standing in front of the newly completed temple of God – holy place, all in Judea must flee to the mountains for Satan will imitate God's signs and wonders during the dedication of Solomon's temple to deceive all and if possible even the elects.

Dedication of temple of God
2 Chron 5:2  Now Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, in Jerusalem, that they might bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord up from the City of David, which is Zion.
    The Antichrist too will invite all religious leaders and heads of nations, to Jerusalem to dedicate the temple to God. Video cameras will be fixed even in the most holy place so that all mankind can witness God being seated on the mercy seat.

2 Chron 5:6  Also King Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel who were assembled with him before the ark, were sacrificing sheep and oxen that could not be counted or numbered for multitude.
    The Antichrist with the world leaders will assemble and make sacrifices in front of the temple of God. Everyone watching on gadgets will see the Antichrist standing in front of the temple of God, and all those in Judea must flee to the mountains.

Mat 24:17  "Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes."
    All those working on the housetop and in the field, when informed by family members of seeing the Antichrist making sacrifices in front of the temple of God at its dedication, must immediately take their families without entering the house and flee into the mountains otherwise they will be trapped to watching the life broadcast and be deceived.

Mat 24:19  "But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!"
   Those pregnant and with nursing babies will have to pack clothings and food for the babies or else they will be entrapped to the broadcast and be deceived.

Mat 24:20  "And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath."
    In winter, the mountains are covered with snow and on the Sabbath they can only walk a short distance and cannot flee to distant mountains. Because of their closeness to Jerusalem and the temple, they will be able to see suddenly Jerusalem covered with thick clouds with thunder and lightning just like God's presence on Mount Sinai. Then lightning, cloud and fire will come down from heaven similar to the dedication of Solomon's Temple. All these signs will draw them to turn back to satisfy their curiosities.

2 Thess 2:9-10   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.

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.

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.

Establishing God's Throne (CW58)

       Coming World War 3

1Cor 3:10-11,16  According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ... Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
    Apostle Paul has helped us to build our foundation based on Christ Jesus. It is our job to build the temple of God in accordance to His design. So far we do manage to understand from the temple of God, a few important truths to help us walk along His path to holiness.
2Cor 7:1  Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

1. Bronze Altar - Salvation,  sins cleansed and forgiven.
2. Bronze Laver - Water baptism to His death (sanctification, crucified)
Rom 6:3  Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
3. Golden Table of Showbread and Golden Lampstand - Baptism of the Holy Spirit of truth, where His truth will enlighten us into all wisdom and understanding.

The Golden Altar of Incense
Rev 8:3-4  Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel's hand.
    At the golden Altar the Priesthood burned incense to Him. When you are a living sacrifice (love as Jesus had loved us), then you are the incense offered at the golden Altar.
Rom 12:1  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.

Perfect Sacrifice
Heb 10:5  Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: "Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me.
    When you live only for Him, then you are the perfect body (sacrifice) for Him.
Gal 2:20  I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Ark of the Covenant
The Mercy Seat sits on the Ark as its foundation, which consists of the ten commandments tablets, the budded branch of Aaron (heresy) and the book of the Law.
    Brethren, keep away from wrong doctrines, distorted truth and heresies. In the new Covenant with Jesus, we keep only the commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ and the words of our Lord and the Epistles of the Apostles. Do not keep the Law or Prophets.
The Mercy Seat
Luke 6:36  "Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful."
    Brethren, we must always be merciful to the poor, needy, destitutes and brethren. But when our love is perfected, we will be merciful even to our enemies, then the Mercy Seat is within us.
1John 2:5  But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

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."
    Brethren, when we have completed His Temple, the Father and our Lord Jesus will dwell on His throne within us because we keep His word.

Establishing the Temple (CW57)

       Coming World War 3

As a new Christian, you have just presented yourself before the Bronze Altar, where the servant of God (Priest), had led you in the sinner's prayer of salvation (Jesus Christ was offered as the sacrificial Lamb). Immediately, the blood of Jesus cleanses you of all sins and unrighteousness and the Holy Spirit of redemption then dwells in you making your physical body the temple of God.
    Since your body is the temple of God you must not grieve the Holy Spirit with sins. Instead, you must ensure that your body is holy and worthy for Him to dwell joyfully within you by setting it up with the various articles that He had designed.

1. The Bronze Altar
Eph 1:7  In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
    If we believe the gospel and come before the Lord to confess and repent of our sins, then we have established the bronze Altar in the Temple within us.
1John 1:9  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Royal Priesthood
1Pet 2:9  But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
    At our salvation, we are all called to be His royal priesthood or disciples. To be His disciples we must deny ourselves and then follow Him and His words.
Mat 16:24  Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

Holiness unto the Lord
2. The Bronze Laver
Eph 5:26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
   By obeying His commandments, we are being cleansed from our lusts, carnality, worldliness and wickedness, then we have established the bronze Laver in the Temple. As we love Him more we will slowly forsake the world and the things therein, till we can enter into the Holy Place.
2Cor 4:2  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.

3. Table of Showbread
Mat 4:4  But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'"      
    After entering into the Holy Place, when we will hunger for His words in the Bible (not books), then we have established the table of showbread.
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."

4. Golden Lampstand
Eph 1:17-18  that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
    As we express our love for Him by keeping His commandments, He will baptised us with the Holy Spirit of truth, to guide us into all truth thus establishing the Lampstand.
John 16:13  "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."

Praise the Lord that the Holy Spirit will be happy dwelling inside the Holy Place within us.

I Will Speak In Parables (cCW56)

       Coming World War 3

John 16:25  "These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you plainly about the Father."
     Our Lord taught and guided His disciples at every opportunity. Regrettably, they could not understand His parables due to the absence of the Holy Spirit, who was given only to the anointed Israelites (priesthood, prophets and kings) then.
Luke 8:9  Then His disciples asked Him, saying, "What does this parable mean?"

Mat 21:45  Now when the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they perceived that He was speaking of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitudes, because they took Him for a prophet.
    The Jews, specifically the spiritual leaders understood many of His parables for they were the people of God and had the Holy Spirit (until the death of our Lord Jesus). God wanted them to understand so that they would repent and be saved. One of such examples is the follower, Nicodemus. Foolishly, the Jews lose the entitlement when they put our Lord to death.

Mat 13:34-35  All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: "I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world."
    Hidden in the parables are the secrets and mysteries of the Kingdom of God. All those without the Holy Spirit will not be able to understand them, for God kept the secrets from them.

But the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language
    Our Lord was crucified a few hours after these final instructions. After His resurrection, He gave His disciples the Holy Spirit as a seal of redemption.
    After our Lord was glorified, the believers were filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of spiritual gifts.
    On a different note, His disciples were baptized with the Spirit of truth, who would teach them all things.

John 16:13a  "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth;"
    Brethren, unless we are baptized with the Holy Spirit by our Lord Jesus Christ (not by man) with the Spirit of Truth, our understanding of the word of God, and the parables of Jesus will be limited.
