Prophecy 2001 and Beyond
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all...
I want to take the time to look into some real prophecy pertaining to the future. Most prophecy we get today from the secular world (sinners) is that which they themselves dream would be or that pertaining to the Devil's work of earthly stuff by fortune tellers. I will give you real prophecy you can rely on. First, let's take an overview of what is happening to our world as prophesied. In Isaiah we read that the world has gone the way of Satan. This is true for today. Let's look at the world from a Biblical view.
I watched, as scripture tell me, (watch as well as pray Matt. 26:41, and Matt. 24:42, Matt. 25:13, ), the habits of the world both far and near. I see the majority of the world, so to speak, doing their own thing acting in a rebellious way toward a creator God. The vast demonstrate their ungreatfullness through their lusts for ungodly music and parting, indulging in much alcohol, getting high on drugs, unmarried sex, ungodly and unpermissive sex acts between same sexes, liars, stealers, filthy mouth, haters, fiththyness and more.
Seeing all this and knowing that nearly all who do these thing bear no relationship with the Church. Most are raised up in the Church with a pastor they come to worship as "a great minister". However, some where down the line the message of these great ministers was mighty weak to create such disrespect as we see from these kids and parents who supposely grown up in Church'
So far, those who pastor's skipped this part of the Bible, I like to reintroduce you to what a real Christian is suppose to be and how they are suppose to conduct themselves since they are representing everything good and right in the sight of God. So let me take you back to basic. This is the tranformation one should have walked away with at the time they confessed while repeating ROMAN 10:9.
Real Prophecy Continue
So, therefore, witnessing the exploits of rebellious and blasphemous people, we are directed to Bible prophecy. Is there true prophecy that describe our world today. Yes it is. We find it in 2 Timothy 3:1. It reads,
1. THIS KNOW also, that in the last days perilous times shall come, The last days are upon us. I believe we are in it leading toward the great finale. The last days means leading toward the coming of the Antichrist, his put down or defeat, and the final rule over the nations by Christ our Lord. Perilous times means dangerous times as for as the mind set of man. His way of thinking.
2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves; Man today feel his job and money determine when, where and how his life is lived. It is he that do for himself. He never think that without God he can do nothing.
Covetous ; Adultery, fornication, power hungry. Greedy for money. Jealousy. People of this sort hate to see someone with something better than theirs, or want to get the same thing. Many in the church are like this too.
boasters; This is bragging about what they have or have done. Boasting put others to shame.
proud; This kind of people consider themselves better than others. Want others to look up to them. They think the world centers around them. They carry a look of important and look down on the weak and poor. God said he hate a proud look (Proverbs 6:16, 17).
blasphemers; They use God name in a bad way. They make jokes about him. Deny his existence. Disrespect him.
disobedient to parents; We see this every where in our society today. Many Parents hardly have the last say so. Despite what many parents teach their children, they rebel and do what they want to do any way. Children cuss their parents, fight their parents, say anything around them. They hang out all hours of the night against parents wishes and rebel by doing drugs and alcohol against their parent's will.
unthankful; God allow many to wake up in the morning, to have a job, to have a home, to have a loving family, to have good health, and to acquire things for enjoyment. Yet, folks will not take the time to say thank you Jesus. For one to say thanks is for one to be in the Lord. A thankful person knows that God is the creator and sustainer of all life.
Therefore, a thankful person is an obedience person.
unholy; this falls in the line of unthankful also. To be unholy is for one to deny God through Jesus Christ. It is not enough to claim a relationship with God, but that relationship can only be established when you have developed a relationship with Christ. It is then through Christ that we serve God, thus becoming holy. Unholy and unthankful is the way the world display it's false love for God. They drank, party, and rock and roll. They find comfort in listening to unholy jazz music, rap singers, country music singers and the lack. They even display their false love by attempting to take a break from their normal sinister life style to pretend to be thankful and holy during holidays. The majority of the world want nothing to do with God.
3. Without natural affection; Natural affection is the affection one should have for one another. It's caring and loving. As we see in these last days, man will not care for or about anyone except those very close to them. We give money to needy organizations, not sure if the money is used correctly, but yet, we will not give to the person right around us who need our help. People do not care about each other like they use too.
trucebreakers; this could be married people not keeping their vows. They commit fornication. This is breaking marriage vows, liars, those who love to cause problems, not honoring their promise.
false accusers; liars, trouble makers, upholding wrong.
incontinent; unruly and out of control. Many today defy the law. Our prisons are full of unruly people, child molesters, child pornography, filth, orgies, rape, uncontrol sexual desire .
fierce; These live by terrorizing others with threats, mean and hateful people, robbers, killers, gangs, threatening attitude in church toward others.
despisers of those that are good ; As Christians, we are hated just like Jesus was hated by his own people, simply because he and we are trying to show and tell the world how to live right and enjoy the blessings God has given us. People now days want to be left alone. They want to live their lives the way they want to, not knowing that we know that there is something after death that is worst than anything one will ever encounter upon earth. We are only trying to prevent them from going there. I'm talking about hell. Once there, you're there for good. Yet, hater don't want you telling them nothing. So they spend their time talking about you or trying to discredit you.
4. Traitors; These are they who really think they no God, but twist the word to suit their need. They can't understand it, but think they do. People like this work off of what feels good to them. They easily compromise by tolerating other religions. They tolerate gays by saying God love gay people too. The fact about the matter is that God does not love gays. He love the person because he created all, but he can not love the gay sin life. Many Christians, depending on the situation, will turn quick against God to quickly please themselves in the world buy doing unholy things in the dark and dimly lit spaces.
heady; These keep arguments going in or out the church. They stir up trouble. Never satisfied. They want things going their way. high-minded;
Jealousy. Want to be at the top of the ladder at all time. They want what they see someone else with. They are forever trying to out do others. This is true with some ministers. When they see another preacher build a very nice church, they get jealous and build them one. The going thing today it seem, is to see who can build the largest church with classes attached, or have the largest congregation.
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God ; Not very many people want to be discipline God's way. They want nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is because the gospel take them away from the things of this world that they enjoy. They believe in technology, their money, their homes, vacations, parties, alcohol, dancing, hunting, bowling, fishing, boating, golfing and the like. Nothing is wrong with some of this, but people put their heart and soul into this. But these things keep them away from learning about God. Pleasure is their God and love. God want us to put him first in our lives then the rest.
But lets look at verse 5 and sum up all of this.
5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. The people we have described will suddenly crowd the churches on certain holidays and Sundays. Many will come, as usual, on regular basics. Some hold positions in Churches, are good speakers and workers. But there is one problem. They are not saved. They look and act like Christians, but Jesus is not in them.
Next, it says, "turn away from these type of people". The scripture is not saying not to have any thing to do with them, but rather, not to put up with this kind of people in the church. You do not let them run offices in the Church nor have any say so either. There are no sinners in the kingdom of God, and neither should there be in our churches.
Prophecy here and Now
Although the world is like it is, there is still hope for mankind. Not all, I'm afraid, will accept the hope. In Matthew 10:33 it says, But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Many out there are denying Jesus. They hear about him daily, but will not believe in him. They will not put their trust in him. They will not come to church no matter how many times they are invited. But Jesus said he will do the same by them. It is bad when Jesus ask nothing for you when standing before Father God. Guess what? In heaven Father God say nothing to Jesus when he's listening to your excuses and condemning you to Hell.
But here are some real prophecy that is true now just as it was 2000 years ago. It's "a chance, a chose"! God is still given you that same choice. Read it for yourself. Accept it right now.
It read, Matthew 10:32, Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.. You must speak of Jesus as the Son of God. You must not deny him, but speak up for him when you hear others speak bad against him. This will really show how much you love and care about him. When you do this, then Jesus will have no problem in mediating before the Father on that great day.
To let you know that God love you and is still waiting on you, let's turn our attention on the most compelling scriptures in the Bible. In Romans 10:8, It read, But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in they mouth, and in thy heart; that is, the word of faith, which we preach; Salvation is but a word away. All one has to do is hear it and believe it deeply and sincerely in their heart and have faith that Jesus is the Son of God. After this all is needed is to confess your sins.
Lets continue with verse 9, here is the requirement for salvation. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved". One must believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that God did raised him from the grave. To believe in the above mean you must be obedience to the word of God. What do this mean? It mean no SINNING. It mean you love God through Jesus from the heart. Many have said this confession, but few have lived up to it.
The next scripture is more prophecy. It read, verse 10, For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. God want you to believe what you are confessing to. He want you to actually want to come to Jesus. Next, he want you to open your mouth and admit that you are a sinner. This is something that many will not do, or admit too. But here, a real man or woman will do as God ask. Open your mouth and tell God how sorry you are and how you so much want him to be a part of your life. To clean you up and to make you that person he can be pleased with.
Now verse 11 and 12 tell us that we can't be ashamed when we believe on Jesus. It does not matter who we are God will accept us. The last scripture is this.
This one is the big one. It sum up verse 8,9,10,11, and 12. It's verse 13. It read, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be save". That's it. It's just that simple. If you believed in what you just confessed, then you are saved and is now part of the kingdom of God. But wait! This is true only if you mean it and go forth from now on living it. If you get off the course, make sure you don't stray to far. You may not can come back. Then if you get off course, maybe, just maybe you never was on course. Congratulation! And Think about it!
