Led by the Spirit of God (CW48)

    Coming WW3 - 4th Seal

Rom 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
   Who are these led by Spirit of God?

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."
    Brethren as Christians we are the disciples of Jesus and must obey and keep His words. Only then will we know the truth which will set us free from worldliness and the snares of Satan

John 14:21  "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."
    This is the grace of God that when we keep His commandments, our Lord Jesus Himself will manifest in us to help, comfort and empower us in all His works and at the same time give us the Helper, the Spirit of truth.
John 14:15-17a  "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"

John 16:13-15  "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. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you."
    When we have the Spirit of truth, He will guide us into all truth so that we can abide or keep His words. The Holy Spirit will only glorify our Lord Jesus, for He will guide and lead us only in the words of Jesus. He cannot go against the teachings, words, commands, etc. of Jesus.
Beware:- When pastors, leaders and Christians claim that 'they are led by the Holy Spirit to do this', which contradicts His words, they are liars or are led by different or demonic spirits.
Eph 4:13-14  till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

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, to me this is the greatest grace of God given to man, that when we keep His words the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us to establish His Kingdom of God. This is the greatest encouragement and comfort that the Almighty God hears, sees and understands us for He is within us. No wonder His disciples were bold and fearless. What an honour given to the weak and miserable man, who only need to expressed his faith by keeping His words. His grace is sufficient for me for His grace of truth has set me free (from the flesh) to holiness and perfection.

Mat 4:1  Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
    Our Lord Jesus who was able to overcome the devil, was led by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil. Similarly only Christ-like (godly, faithful, etc.) disciples are led by the Spirit of God to overcome the deceptions and snares of the devil so that we can glorify Him.
"Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!"   (Rev 5:13b)

Manifold Grace of God (CW47)

   Coming WW3 - 4th Seal

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.
    Grace is freely given to men so that we will know truth, which will set us free from the snares of Satan. Grace is the unmerited favour (empowering, mercy, etc.) of God at the expense of His Son Jesus, on condition that we believe and receive Him (New Covenant) .
John 1:12  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:

A. Saving Grace - unmerited favour
Eph 2:8  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
   To obtain God's saving grace, we must walk out our faith by doing the following:-
1. believe that Jesus the Son of God was the Word made flesh, He died on the cross as the propiation for our sins and on the third day He rose having victory over death,
2. acknowledge that we are sinners by confessing our sins,
3. accept and confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior,
4. believe that we are now the temple of God with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as His seal.
    Only after walking out this faith in Him, can we receive His grace of salvation.
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.

B) Manifold Grace of God
1Pet 4:10-11  As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
   Similarly, God will grant to those who fulfills the conditions for receiving each of His manifold grace.

1. Holy Spirit and Spiritual Gifts
Acts 19:2,5-6  he said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?"  So they said to him, "We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.".. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
    The Holy Spirit and His gifts are given to those who are saved and also believe and desire them.
1Cor 14:1  Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.

2. Empowering for good Works
1Cor 15:10  But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

3. Empowering for Holy living
Heb 12:14-15  Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

4. Building the Temple of God
1Cor 3:9-11  For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building. 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.

Brethren, these are only a few examples of the manifold grace of God given to help His sheep.

Knowledge of God (CW46)

    Coming WW3 - 4th Seal

Exceedingly Precious Promise
2 Pet 1:2-4  Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
   We thank God for the exceeding great and precious promises and His divine power through the knowledge of God, that men can be perfected, being partakers of the divine nature, which is our transformation into His image.

Obedience to Perfection
    In 2nd Peter, God has shown us a step to step to perfection. So, if we diligently follow the instructions and with the understanding of the seven Spirits of God, it will be easy to trace our walk with Jesus to perfection.

2 Pet 1:5  But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge,

1. Spirit of the Lord - Faith
    As soon as one is saved, he is giving the Holy Spirit. From the Bible he will begin to know Him and find his faith in Him and His word.

2. Spirit of Wisdom - Virtue
add to your faith virtue,
    a man of virtue is a wise man - one who does what he believes (faith) or doer of the word.
Mat 7:24  "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:"

3. Spirit of Knowledge
add to virtue knowledge
    Having kept His word, he now understand it. He can be a teacher.

2 Pet 1:6  to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness,

4. Spirit of Counsel
add to knowledge self-control
    One who can control oneself from sins and evil thoughts, and helps and counsels his sheep to righteous living - a fatherly figure or pastor

5. Spirit of Might
add to self-control perseverance
    One who can endure pains and sufferings reaching out to the unreached - an evangelist

6. Spirit of the Knowledge of the Lord
add to perseverance godliness or godlikeness
    One who understands the very heartbeat of God - His will, delights, pleasures, ways and sadness. He is worthy to be His prophet.

7. Spirit of the Fear of the Lord
2 Pet 1:7  to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.
    One, who fears that his good and righteous works are done without the sincere love of the brethren - an apostle of the Lord.

Doers of the Word
2 Pet 1:8  For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    A doer of the Word of God will be fruitful in the knowledge of Christ, and he will be able to walk in the light with Him until perfection.

The Spirituality Blind
2 Pet 1:9  For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
    All those rejecting the words and commandments of Christ are spiritually blind. Without the truth and the knowledge of God, they are just mouthing out worldly opinions, which are outright nonsense in their walk with God. They will always distort the truth and promote wrong doctrines and heresies,

Covenant of God (CW45)

   Coming WW3 - 4th Seal
Rev 3:20  "If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me."
    The bible, both Old and New Testaments, is a covenant God made with us. So when we fulfill the 'if', then our faithful God will fulfil His part by granting us more grace. Heresies are usually doctrines where the 'if' is left out.

John 14:23a  Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word;..."
    We can sing, proclaim, declare and say that we love God. According to God, if we have not kept His word, we do not love Him.
    John 15:24a  "He who does not love Me does not keep My words;.."

John 15:14-16  "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you."

'whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.'
    The above is the favourite verse of preachers of prosperity gospel, positive confession, extra grace and other heresies. This promise is given only to Jesus' friends who have kept His commands.

John 14:15-17, 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, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.... 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."
    Similarly, we cannot get the anointing of the Spirit of truth to enable us to understand His truth, will, prophecies, teachings, unless we keep His words.

John 16:13-14  "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. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you."
    Brethren, if you have signed a contract and yet without fulfilling the contract of payments, you demand the delivery of the house, then your action is lawlessness and wickedness.
    Similarly, all these blind, lawless and wicked Christians blaspheme God's name by demanding Him to keep His promise of blessing them when they have not kept their part of the contract of loving Him by keeping His word and commands.

Brethren, remember the 'ifs', which will guide you to Him or warn you of sufferings, or damnation. Please keep away from all these wrong doctrines and heresies. Keep His word and commandments, and then our loving Father will manifest in you His joy, peace and love. He will also remind you of your needs, the help, miracles, and healing that you have forgotten to ask Him. Amen.

Synchronizing the Seals (CW44)

   Coming WW3 - 4th Seal
Mat 24:3  Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"
    I believe that our Lord Jesus' teachings are given especially to those living in the endtimes so that they will not be misled or confused. All the signs and events given or taught should be in chronological order and easy to recognize. By setting Mat 24 as the standard basis for the chronological order of endtime events we will be able to synchronise all these events up to rapture. Most of the prophecies in both the OT and NT are not in chronological order. Interpretations without a standard reference lead to many mistakes. As a result, Bible Seminaries teach only the various schools of thoughts, such as Pre-trib, Mid-trib, Post-trib. We need the truth in order to overcome the heresies and distorted doctrines taught by false teachers and false prophets who are apostles of the devil.
Mat 24 or Mark 13, the seven Seals, Daniel 11 and 12 are all in chronological order, and are basic sources for endtime events.

Fourth Seal – civil wars and WW3 with natural calamities.
Mat 24:6-7  "And you will hear of wars and rumours 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. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Fifth Seal – Mat 24:9-28 (Period of Tribulation or Wrath of Satan for 42 months)
1. Building of temple of Antichrist – Christians persecuted for exposing and rebelling
2. The Great Tribulation – Signs and wonders by the Antichrist seated in the temple of God will deceive many Christians to worship him.

Sixth Seal – Rapture with the Great Heavenly Blackout.
Mat 24:29-31  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven... And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
    Rapture will fulfill the period of grace for the Gentiles but will start the salvation of the remnants of the Israelites.

Seventh Seal – After rapture, will be the Wrath of God (also 42 months) for all those left behind including the Israelites.

Our Lord Jesus and His disciples spent so much time teaching in great detail endtime prophecies so that Christians living in the last days will not be deceived by Satan (Antichrist) masquerading as an angel of light.
Regrettably, unlearned and worldly pastors acting as the Devil's agents teach the heretic 'Secret Rapture', which prevented Christians from His endtime truth.

2Thess 2:1-4  Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Fourth Seal (CW43)

   Coming WW3 - 4th Seal
Judgment of God
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), unlivable 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 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 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)

Joy of the Lord (CW42)

    Coming WW3 - 4th Seal

The Joy of the Lord is my Strength
Luk 19:37-38  Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: " 'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
    The whole multitude in Jerusalem rejoiced with spontaneous praising, worshipping and welcoming the King of kings and the Lord of lords, who had performed so many miracles to comfort, heal and deliver the people.  
    Similarly, there will be great rejoicing in Christian homes (house cells) by all those saved, healed and comforted. Their exultation and adoration of His great love, mercies, kindness, healings, helps and deliverances will constantly be offered spontaneously daily. Be ready to form more house cells.
Note  Get ready the hymns books, for most hymns have the gospel message.

Rejoicing in Heaven
Luk 15:5-7  And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
    The greatest joy in heaven is when one sinner repents. So when we continuously pick up the sick, suffering, wounded and hungry from the streets and allow our Lord to heal, deliver and save them, the whole heaven will continuously be rejoicing during these period of the 4th Seal.

Saddest Moment in Heaven
    God is just, righteous, merciful and filled with love for all mankind. The beginning of the 4th Seal will be His saddest period to see His so-called children (pseudo-Christians, hypocrites, heretics, false christs, homosexuals, etc.) killed and cast into Hades.
Eze 18:32  For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies," says the Lord God. "Therefore turn and live!"

Brethren, Repent and Love Him
Eph 3:14-19  For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
    Brethren, God loves us very much to the extent of sacrificing His only begotten Son to die on the cross to redeem us from damnation. When a Christian rebels against Jesus, His words, teachings and doctrines, it saddens Him very much. Unless he repents,  God has no other choice but with great pain and anguish, condemns him to damnation because God is just and is always faithful to His words.
