WORLD GONE MAD:
| || |
Do we disobey God by legally murdering full term human babies in the womb?
Do we dishonor God by legalizing homosexual marriage?
Do we practice whore-mongering; sex outside of marriage?
Do we support laziness by giving welfare to the able bodied?
Do we make babies without benefit of marriage?
Yes, we do. Do we intend to stop? No!
In past generations God blessed the USA for devotion and obedience to His precepts.
Now the USA is under siege ... and we wonder why God isn't protecting us?
God said, “Now if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, you will be My treasured possession out of all the nations--for the whole earth is Mine.”

God said, "And it shall come to pass afterward [end times], that I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”
Friday, 6-24-20, In three dreams Pastor Dana Coverstone of Living Word Ministries Assemblies of God in Burkesville, KY  has seen the future of America. It confirms what so many other prophetic voices have been shown over the years. In Joel chapter 2:28, we're promised that the Lord would pour out His Spirit in the last days there will be an outpouring of dreams and visions, and that is precisely what we are witnessing. The testimonial of Pastor Coverstone’s three dreams is very compelling as the December 2019 dream was shared with Church members and has already come to pass.

Video transcript follows:
Pastor Coverstone: “I’m a pastor, husband and father. I’m a patriot I love this country [USA]. I can confirm the first part of what I’m about to tell you because I told some men at a prayer group back in December [ 2nd or third week of December, 2019]. I’m going to share three specific dreams I’ve had recently; two I’ve had this week [June 22-23, 2020]. I believe - number one - they are prophetic. The first one has come explicitly true based on the events of March to June , the month we’re currently living. I do not claim to be a prophet by any means. I understand though that some dreams and visions by their nature have a prophetic tendency to them. [..] So you can take what I’m about to say with a grain of salt, you can pray about it you can think about it; but I believe that I have a warning for the country.
Back in December I woke up, I had a dream I saw a calendar starting January 2020. The pages/months were being flipped; I saw January, February, March. But when March came up I saw a finger underline the month of March and the tap it three times. So to me it was emphasis, something’s going to happen in March.
Then I saw April, May, June. When June came, the hand underlined June again and tapped it three times. I saw people marching, protest, people wearing masks. I saw lines going into hospitals. I saw typical medical doctors with needles or syringes, I saw people on ventilators people who were very, very sick. I saw ambulances, just flying down roads and then I saw cities on fire, buildings being burned, angry people who had their fists in the air, people who were yelling and screaming. I saw courthouses, state houses surrounded. I saw people who were mad at the world. I saw I saw guns shotguns specifically put in the air, held like this, (showing above his head) and I saw barriers within cities. [I told several men in my church about this and I can confirm who those men were and they’ll confirm what I’m telling you is what I told them.]
I saw absolute chaos and vultures flying over large cities, not just the ones that were burning, but flying over the cities, and I saw smoke rising and I saw I saw terrified people inside their homes, looking out windows, the crimson windows with guns in their hands because it was absolute fear.
Since December I’ve been hearing those words.
"Brace yourself. Brace yourself.”
January, February came, it didn’t seem much. I reminded the men of the dream and then in March term COVID-19 virus hit and things started shutting down. Churches & businesses were shut down the economy shut down. Then we began to see the protests, starting in March, in May in Minneapolis and those things began to go on. Now there’s talk of more shutdowns. The things that I saw in the December dream are the same things that I watched in the news almost everyday March through June 2020.
All of this time I kept hearing “brace yourself brace yourself”. [..]
On Monday night I had another dream. It woke me from my bed. I made notes about it. I shot some video of myself just making sure to remember. I saw a calendar with a white figure appearing; to me, it was a representing God the Holy Spirit, something pure, righteous, something true, something Holy because there was nothing sinister about it. Nothing evil, but I heard the voice say, “part two, part two”.
I saw the calendar with June, go, July. I saw August, and then I saw September, and I saw the finger underneath the word September and I like like emphasizing it and tap the three times. Then I saw October come up, and then I saw November and this is when it got real to me. I think the intensity for me… when I woke up my heart rate was about 180.
So that was Monday night [June 22, 2020], and I woke up not feeling very well. But anyway,… The minute the finger underlined November three times instead of tapping it, I saw a fist ball up and it hit the calendar. And literally, the calendar exploded into the wall, the numbers seem that they were falling everywhere.
There was a cloud of chaos that started in there. I saw I saw armed protesters. I saw fighting in the streets, I saw people pummeling one another. I saw businesses shuttered and shut up, schools closed, school rooms with cobwebs hanging in them and like things like papers falling off the wall and posters… like no one had been in them for months. I saw bank buildings with the roof being taken off. It looked almost that alien abduction because money was flying through the roof into some type of like a vacuum cleaner.
It sounds kind of strange, but I was watching wealth, just being taken. I saw politicians in back rooms, making deals with people. Patting people on the back and laughing and smiling and smirking.
I saw monuments. I saw Washington DC, burning… blazing- fires, everywhere. I saw people being rounded up. I saw Chinese and Russian soldiers on the ground. The Russian soldiers would tell the Chinese soldiers to go “pick up these people”…” secure this quadrant”….secures this area”… I saw blue helmets of the UN. I saw a military things taking place. I also saw no sign of President Trump or leadership in Washington DC.
The vultures that I had seen were like gargoyles 10 to 15 feet off the ground. They were just attacking people mercilessly. I saw people hiding in their homes and garages. I saw churches and homes being burned. I saw absolute chaos. The fist punch on the November of 2020 is what got my attention. Then I heard the words again. “Brace yourself, Brace yourself. Brace yourself.”
The second dream I had last night woke me up. We just had a yard sale at church to help fund a team going to Ecuador this next year. I asked our secretary to get some change for that for that yard sale but I walked to the bank to get some change. On the door, it said "there’s no change available." I walked on in, and the president of the local bank was at the teller station. I told her, “I need to get $10 in quarters for yard sale.” She said, “I’m sorry, but the US Mint is no longer making currency or making change… ( like pennies nickels dimes quarters half dollars), “We’re not doing that anymore.”
[Note: already happened no coins here]
I said, “well what do you mean” - She said, … ” they stopped doing it” - I said, “Well, how am I going to be able to charge $1.50 for anything ?” - She said, “prepare for hyperinflation and just charge $2. Oh by the way, $1 and $5 bills will follow soon after that.”
Again I heard those words. “Brace yourself. Brace yourself. Brace yourself.”
I wrote these things down. I have never gone on video and recorded the dreams that I’ve had and I hesitated to do the one I had back in December, but everything I saw in that dream, came true between March and June. I don’t think I would be doing anyone a service if I don’t share what I saw in these dreams and visions.
I’m not claiming to be a prophet I’m not claiming proclaiming … just, … let’s see what happens through November and see if I’m right about this. But I know when I hear God’s voice, I know, I know what God’s voice sounds like to me. I know when He speaks. I know it's Him.
The things that I am saying, I don’t say this to scare people but I say this to warn people that there are some pretty sinister things coming down the pike, and not just for the lost, but for God’s people as well. I also believe you need to be praying like you never prayed before.
Between September and November of this coming year; by the time we get to November and nothing’s happened … man you call you call me on this and say .. you are an absolute idiot and a fool for saying those things!
Go right ahead as I realize I’m responsible for what I’ve spoken. I also know what I sense and I know the Holy Spirit’s voice enough to know that what I’ve heard.
I believe it's going to happen. What I heard in December happened between March and June. Acts 2:17
End of American Dream
Hatred level in the USA rising with each passing day
Massive Violence Will Rock Our Cities On July 4th
Jesus said it is going to get worse and worse. The Apostle John prophesied that in the end times many anti-Christs would come; it would be like the days of Noah & Lot in Sodom & Gomorrah when every intent and imagination of the human heart was consistently wicked and totally evil. And very soon it'll get much worse. Disciples of Christ will be arrested, persecuted and killed. You will be hated all over the world and many will turn away from Christ, betraying and hating each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere and the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end as we know it will come.
1 John 2:18; Genesis 6:5; Matthew 24:9-14; Romans 1:29
6-30-20, Michael Synder* -- Turmoil and mayhem in the USA includes lawlessness and virus lockdown. Reportedly law enforcement authorities all over the USA are bracing for more rioting [2 Thess 2:7] as liberal leftist America hating anarchists are planning more violence to make July 4th 2020 one of the biggest protest days so far. Traditionally in America, INDEPENDENCE DAY is greatly celebrated, but this year two protests are planned near the White House : occupying 'The Ellipse' and “million man march” will be in front of the White House ending at the U.S. Capitol.
Thus far the Covid virus scare has been successfully locking down America causing untold misery health wise and on the economy. The plan to continue and increase the destruction needs to find ways to make it sound a lot more scary than it really is [98% of victims recover]. Over the past couple of weeks we're being told that this new wave of virus is “10 times more infectious” than it was when it first started spreading in China and many people have really been freaking out as the number of confirmed cases have come forth.
Although the remaining months of 2020 will be chaotic, the truth is that things are going to get progressively worse:
- Three nuclear nations China, Pakistan and India have been shooting each other over a disputed border region
- North Korea just blew up “a joint liaison office” that it had used for talks with the South Korean government
- Turkey is warning Israel of grave consequences if the Jewish state proceeds with a plan to annex portions of Judea and Samaria [aka West Bank]
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20; 2 Thessalonians 2:7; Daniel 9:5, 7

Love Your Enemies
The Lord Jesus said: “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
6-1-20, * -- It is easy to be good to those who are good to us. [Matthew 5:46] It is much harder to be good to those who harm us. [Romans 12:20-21] However, this is exactly what the Lord Jesus Christ commands us to do. In fact, He took this thought a step further by commanding us to love those who are our enemies. Jesus admonished His followers to respond to those who hurt them with love so that His followers would become sons and daughters of God. [Leviticus 19:18]
If we are honest, we must admit that instead of loving and praying for those who harm us; we want to proclaim our rights and demand justice. God, however, instructs us to treat others the way we would want to be treated. [Luke 6:31]
The next time you feel as though an injustice has been committed against you, remember the Savior endured both rejection and insult, yet He continued to demonstrate God’s infinite love and mercy even to those who crucified Him. Let Jesus’ ultimate display of love be our inspiration as we respond in love to everyone. Yes even to those who have hurt us. The evidence of Christ’s life within us is the outward display of His goodness, mercy and grace.
Our behavior may bring that lost soul to the Lord. (Luke 6:27-28) Source
Revolution USA: No Lives Matter
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.
It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
– John Adams, US President, 1824
God: When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn. He sets himself on path that’s not good. Hate evil, love good and establish justice! Pursue what is good not evil.
Proverbs 29:2; Psalm 36:4; Amos 5:15; 1 Thessalonians 5:15; Romans 12:9
6-25-20, * -- In the USA we aren’t a moral and religious people - not anymore. The moral slide of nearly 2 ½ centuries has brought us to national suicide. The philosophy of libertarian atheist, Ms Ayn Rand did get this right: “We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”
What we’re currently witnessing across the US isn’t a civil rights movement, anti racist or peaceful protesters exercising First Amendment rights. Peaceful doesn’t include, rioting, looting, arson, assault, blocking roadways, vandalizing property and murder.
The liberals/Marxists/globalists were so close to destroying the USA in 2016; however the Lord God intervened giving us a reprieve electing law & order businessman Donald John Trump. [Proverbs 29:2]
The current ‘spark’ for revolution happened on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis when a white cop was seen on a widely published video killing George Floyd by kneeling on his neck. All peoples were outraged. However, the rage and fury, both with people who’ve been conditioned to believe they’re targeted for the color of their skin and the leftist revolutionaries steering the unrest began rioting; causing an insurrection. This isn’t about racism and George Floyd at all; it's just another opportunity for violence and anarchy. If racism and police brutality are systemic in cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, New York City and more … why haven’t the Democrats who’ve run these cities for decades and generations done anything to end it? Why are they still there?
In 2 Thessalonians 2:3 we read of iniquity [lawlessness] abounding in the end times. Currently in the streets of many cities in the USA law enforcement has been ordered to stand down and permit the mayhem.
The Democrat/Communist Party has become the political wing of the leftist media and the unfolding revolution. Their propaganda arm is entrenched in the entertainment industries while the public education system does the training and indoctrination, turning our kids into their brain washed foot soldiers.
If the activist group ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’ [BLM] and domestic terror group ‘ANTIFA’ were truly concerned about crime and poverty among black people, they’d address one primary and direct source of it, a high incidence of black babies being born into single mother homes and stop aborting them.
Also, liberal leftist Democrats support and promote homosexuality even in our public government run elementary schools. -->
<-- The gay/trans/lesbian groups are an abomination and the Lord Jesus explained about the two sexes saying “Have ye not read, that He Who made them at the beginning made them male and female (just two sexes). For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Matthew 19:4-6)
We see on the BLM website by charter and action, one would be hard-pressed to find a more anti-Christian organization. Why then are Social Justice “Christian” leaders falling all over themselves to show solidarity with this overtly satanic movement? The co-founder of BLM said in 2015 video:
“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia (Garza) in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.
We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.” — Ms Patrisse Cullors, NY Post
There is nothing new in Communist attempts to organize black people for race wars as part of a larger communist revolution.
In 1959 former black communist leader Manning Johnson wrote: “Stirring up race and class conflict is the basis of all discussion of the Communist Party’s work in the South. The evil genius, Joseph Stalin,
and the other megalomaniacal leaders who ordered the use of all racial, economic and social differences, no matter how small or insignificant, to start local fires of discontent, conflict and revolt… This scenario gives black people a persecution complex; a warped belief that the white man’s prejudices, culture and system of government are responsible for everything. Such a belief is the way the “reds” plan it, for the next logical step is hate that can be used by the reds to accomplish their ends.” -- Chapter 3 & 7 Red (communist) Plot to use Negroes – “Color, Communism, and Common Sense”
Today, Johnson’s exact same strategy and talking points are being used in America with amendments: In 1967, white communist Noel Ignatiev came up with a complimentary concept to systemic black oppression called “white privilege.” If you’re white, as a majority in this nation are, an inherently racist system benefits you by keeping non-whites down. When white people fall for it, white guilt occurs, evidenced by the self-loathing some have for their skin pigmentation and the heritage that bore them.
They (Black Lives Matter) have no love for their own people or for America. Naturally, they get support and approval from the leftist America hating globalists. In their folly as they feel frustrated and inferior, they run to communism and civil disobedience.
As a nation, America is in spiritual rebellion against almighty God; bringing the physical current revolution. There are only small pockets of Christianity left in this wicked nation. Is it worth saving? We ultimately deserve what’s happening. Repentance is the only thing that could possibly remove God’s imminent and occurring judgment – but it hasn’t happened. Having sown the wind, we’re finally reaping the whirlwind. [Hosea 8:7] Despite this, our Christian witness, principles and responsibilities remain. The lost remain in need of the Savior the Lord King Jesus Christ. [John 14:6]
To those who take a knee to show their disdain for the USA and those who bow before anarchists, revolutionaries, traitors, skin color, money and all manner of the self-serving philosophies of men, your justice is indeed coming. [Proverbs 21:15]
“Love is to be sincere and active [the real thing—without guile and hypocrisy]. Hate what is evil [detest all ungodliness, do not tolerate wickedness]; hold on tightly to what is good.” (Romans 12:9-12)
I bow knee only to He by whom it comes. Ultimately, everyone will.
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10-11)
Revolution over. All Hail King Jesus!

Signs of the Times
Jesus said, “When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?”
6-29-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- The Lord Jesus gives a sharp rebuke in Matthew 16:2-3; it was well deserved, for His critics were challenging Him to prove His right to be heard by performing a miracle. However, they had already been confronted with a tremendous body of evidence, both in their Scriptures and in the very life and teachings of Jesus (as well as in the miracles [John 10:38] already wrought by Him) that He was their Messiah. They paid great attention to weather forecasting and other mundane matters while ignoring or rejecting the evidence that God Himself, in Christ, was in their midst.
Today we are more occupied with daily weather even than they were, with all sorts of forecasting devices in operation. There is also a growing army of doomsday forecasters, loudly concerned about overpopulation, pollution, and a host of other foreboding secular “signs of the times.”
Yet they ignore the overwhelming evidences, both in science and Scripture, that our great Creator/Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, is still in control and is coming again [John 17:24; Matthew 25:13; Mark 13:33, 37; 1 Thessalonians 5:2-6] soon to fulfill His great purposes in creation and redemption. A mere listing of the many real signs of God’s times would take many pages. One such sign, of course, is this very proliferation of science and technology. At “the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” (Daniel 12:4). Also, knowledge of God and His creation has been increased as demonstrated by confirmation in archaeology. Another is the great following achieved by these false teachers, as multitudes “turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:4). “Hypocrites,” Jesus said, are concerned with secular trends, but spiritual discerners can recognize the true signs.1 John 4:1-6 Source
'Forget Reset, It's the Great Unraveling'
John the Baptist preached: "Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.' ... the people went out to him in Jerusalem, all Judaea and all the region round about Jordan. They were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, 'O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance'. [..] indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but He [Jesus] Who comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Whose fan is in His hand, and He will throughly purge His floor and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

The Two Ways
“For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous:
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
6-27-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- Psalm 1:6 outlines the inescapable truth that there are only two roads and two destinations leading to eternity. The word “way” (Hebrew derek) means “road.” There is only one way leading to heaven—the way of the righteous; and one way leading to hell—the way of the ungodly. Period. John 14:6
This is a very common word in Scripture, but it is significant that its first occurrence is in Genesis 3:24, referring to “the way of the tree of life.” Once expelled from the garden of Eden because of their rebellion, Adam and Eve no longer could travel that “way” of life and began to die.
Since there are only two basic ways of looking at life: the God-centered viewpoint and the man-centered viewpoint; there are only two ways of life:
- of the godly
- the ungodly
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25).
What is the way of the righteous that leads to life? Jesus said:
“I am the way, no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
“This is the way, walk ye in it” (Isaiah 30:21). Source
John 3:7; 2 Corinthians 5:17
Who's Responsible for the Rioters aka "Protesters?"
Children Raised Up and Brainwashed in Government Public Schools Now Being Used For the Leftists Communist Agenda in America - Parents are Responsible
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” … “Wisdom is justified by her children.”
Proverbs 22:6; Luke 7:35
6-26-20, * -- In America and the world today, prophecy is unfolding before our eyes as the younger people are rising up in opposition to the face of the older. Too many have been raised without discipline.
God’s word, the Holy Bible, tells us how to train up our children for good or evil and they will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6; Luke 7:35).
It’s the parents who complain about the colleges in America and yet allow and even pay to send their children to the socialist, communist institutions.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Galatians 6:7-8
After the Columbine school shootings in April of 1999, I knew it was time for us to get into the public schools and to reach out to our young people across the country; so we did (Isaiah 58:12). It is the greatest mission field in the world for the American Church. [..snip]
Now ... who in America is responsible for raising up our “psychopaths looking to brawl?” The violent hate filled youth who riot, vandalize, loot and kill are a mere reflection of the training given to them - yes - by their parents, period. It’s time to take responsibility, America. (Numbers 32:23)

Living & Growing in the Fires of Sorrow
The Lord Jesus said: "…what shall I say? "Father, save Me from this hour"? But for this purpose I came to this hour. "Father, glorify Your name."
6-25-20, Archives of Oswald Chambers -- The attitudes of God's saints toward sorrow and difficulty should not be to ask that we be prevented from sorrow, but to ask that God protect us so that we may remain what He created us to be, in spite of all our fires of sorrow.
We may say that there ought to be no sorrow, but there is sorrow; and we have to accept its "fires." If we try to evade sorrow, refusing to deal with it, we are foolish. Sorrow is one of the biggest facts in life and there's no use in saying it should not be. Sin, sorrow and suffering are, and it's not for us to say that God has made a mistake in allowing them.
Sorrow removes a great deal of a person’s shallowness and it humbles us. Unfortunately, it may not make us a better person. Too often success makes us prideful; with added sorrow we are brought back to reality - it's a balancing act. [James 1:12;
The only way to find yourself is in the fires of sorrow. Why it should be this way is immaterial. The fact is that it is true; we can easily recognize those who have been through the fires of sorrow. We can go to them in our moment of trouble and usually find that they have plenty of time for us. But if a person has not been through the fires of sorrow, they are apt to be contemptuous, having no respect or time for us. When we have been through the fires of sorrow, God will make us nourishment for others. Occasionally our sorrows stem from God's punishment; He helps those who obey Him and punishes those who do not. Jude 1:5-8 Source
Jews Worldwide Now Moving to Israel in Unprecedented Droves as Prophesied in Bible Old Testament Book of Jeremiah
The Lord said: "At the same time I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people. The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them and make them rejoice from their sorrow."
Jeremiah 31:1-2; Genesis 17:7, 19; Hosea 1:10
6-18-20, Breaking Israel News -- Spokesman for the Jewish community of Hebron Rabbbi Yishai Fleisher released an “invitation” for Jews worldwide to move back to Israel hinting that the comfort they enjoyed in America could be coming to an end.
The latest forecast from Jerusalem says that the Jewish state of Israel is expecting 90,000 Jews from the diaspora to emigrate to Israel by the end of 2021. The process of Jewish people worldwide naturalizing in Israel is called ‘Aliyah’. According to Jewish tradition, when Rachel's father Laban deceived Jacob giving her older sister Leah in marriage in her stead, Rachel revealed to Leah a secret sign she had made with Jacob in order to spare Leah from embarrassment. Rachel had unparalleled selflessness and love for her sister, it is Rachel’s prayers, tears and cries for compassion to her children that are heard by God more than any other biblical figure. God promises Rachel that those tears are not for naught, but rather “There is a reward for your labor” and “your children shall return to their country.” (Jeremiah 31:16)
Josh Wander, founder of the Bring them Home organization which educates Jews on the spiritual importance of making Aliyah said: “With the combination of corona, financial instability, widespread unrest and antisemitism, Jews are again shaken to their core for the first time and are looking for alternative places to live.
There are those out there who say that ‘this too shall pass’ [Rev 21:10] and I constantly remind them that during the plagues in Egypt, the goal of the plagues was to send a message to the Egyptians which unfortunately – they didn’t receive well. It’s possible that the riots will die down and they’ll fix the economy (although I don’t see that happening). But even if that does happen, the divine message for people to return is there.”
"There is hope for your future [Israel] —declares Hashem [God]:
Your children shall return to their country."
Jeremiah 31:13 (The Israel Bible™)
God's covenant for the Jewish homeland was with Abraham and his wife, Sarah:
Genesis 17:15-19, 22:1-2
Our Gifts for His Kingdom
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
6-19-20, Pastor Charles Stanley -- Many people hear the word "serve" and feel that they do not have the necessary abilities to make a difference in others' lives serving in the church of Jesus Christ. This is true - apart from God. However, when we are born again in the Lord Jesus, He gifted each of us in unique ways. His plan for us involves using these talents and gifts to serve Him for the good of others. Satan would like us to believe otherwise.
The enemy, the devil [1 John 4:1] wants us to notice what others are doing and then to feel inferior. For instance, I have heard women say, "I am just a homemaker." They see people preaching and singing in the choir and wish they could accomplish something so great for God. Friends, there could be nothing further from the truth. An enormous responsibility rests with those who train their children in God’s truths and righteousness!
In fact, the Holy Spirit has gifted each believer for specific work in God's kingdom. Scripture explains by a comparison with a human body: each person has gifts and purposes that make the entire system function well. If the foot wants the role of the eye, the whole being will lose balance. The Apostle Paul explains:
“For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased Him. …the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor... God tempered the body together ... That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular.” 1 Corinthians 12:14-27
Each part [member] of the Body of Christ’s church is crucial, even though some are less noticeable than others. Peter defined himself: "a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ" (2 Pet. 1:1). He was no longer a man motivated by self-interest; once He followed Jesus, he saw himself as a servant of God. We, too, are called to serve the King of Kings with whatever abilities we are given.

Lawlessness in the World
End of America as we know it ...
The Apostle Paul said, "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity [lawlessness] doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause - God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
6-21-20, Pastor JD Farag of Calvary Chapel in Hawaii USA proclaims reasons why we are near the end of the age as we know it. The unchecked and growing shameful lawlessness now ongoing in the world with the false premise of racism ... the desire of the wicked to defund and disband America's law enforcement as in Seattle.

Thirteen Post-Resurrection Appearances of the Lord King Jesus:
He appeared to His eleven disciples, women and hundreds of others.
Seven times in Jerusalem, three times in Galilee, one time in Nazareth, one time in Bethany and after ascension - to Paul on road to Damascus.
He appeared to His eleven disciples, women and hundreds of others: seven times in Jerusalem, three times in Galilee, one time in Nazareth, one time in Bethany and after ascension to Paul on road to Damascus. During those forty days there are thirteen recorded times of His appearances; following in chronological order: [FYI from Jerusalem it’s appx 200 miles to Damascus and 114 miles to Galilee]
- Mary Magdalene at the open tomb (Mark 16:9-11; John 20:11-18) Jerusalem
- Other two women who were with Mary Magdalene—Salome and Mary the mother of James (Matthew 28:9-10) Jerusalem
- Peter (Luke 24:34; 1 Corinthians 15:5) Jerusalem
- Cleopas and another man Jerusalem on the road to Emmaus (Mark 16:12-13; Luke 24:13-32)
- Ten apostles without Thomas in the upper room on Mount Zion just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. (Luke 24:36-43; John 20:19-25) Jesus asked them to give Him something to eat, and He ate a piece of fish in front of them. (As we will be like Him(1 John 3:2) in our resurrected bodies we to will be able to eat food.)
- Eleven apostles with Thomas (John 20:26-29). Upper room, Jerusalem - As Thomas said, “Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails and put my finger into the print of the nails and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe.” (John 20:25) A few days later, the risen Christ again appeared to them and said to Thomas, “Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing… Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.” Then Thomas said, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28)
- Peter, Thomas, Nathaniel, the two sons of Zebedee, and two others on the shores of the Sea of Galilee (John 21:1-25). They were fishing in a boat not far from shore, and they fished all night fishing on the sea of Galilee without a catch. The next morning Jesus appeared on the shore. They saw Him but they didn’t recognize that it was Him. Jesus said to them, “Have you caught any fish?” Jesus told them to try again and where and they caught a lot of fish. Apparently the Lord cooked the fish and ate with them.
- Eleven disciples again this time in Galilee on a mountain (Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:15-18). He gave them His orders for their mandate of the “Great Commission:” Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you”
- Over five hundred at once (1 Corinthians 15:6)  Galilee (Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:15-18). https://taylormarshall.com/2018/04/resurrected-christ-appeared-500-happen.html
- His half brother James (1 Corinthians 15:5-7; Galatians 1:19) possibly Nazareth
- Apostles day of His ascension Jesus ate a meal with them in Jerusalem (Acts 1:3-8; (Mark 16:19-20; Luke 24:50-53) and gave final instructions to preach His Gospel good news] in all the earth. His ascension (Acts 1:9-12; Mark 16:19-20; Luke 24:50-53).[
- Apostles at ascension in Bethany, on the Mount of Olives (Acts 1:9-11)
- Paul (1 Corinthians 15:8; Acts 9:1-6; 18:9-10; 23:11)
- On the road to Damascus he saw His presence as a very bright light that temporarily blinded Him, and he heard His voice
- in a vision
- the night before he was taken to Rome, Jesus stood by him and encouraged him.
Christian Mandate from the Lord Jesus:
Share the Gospel With Every Creature
Blind 63 year old Gail Blair Ordered to STOP sharing Gospel of Jesus!
She sued ...
The Lord Jesus gave marching orders to His disciples:
'Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to everyone.'
Rhode Island USA Bans Blind Gail Blair  From Public Park for Street Preaching Jesus as She Handed Out the Bible's Gospel of John
6-17-20, Rhode Island USA, (TargetLiberty.org) – FREEDOM OF RELIGION IS #1 IN THE CONSTITUTION, yet one association singled out 63 year old blind woman Gail Blair of Westerly, RI, who is a member of the Pocket Testament League for exercising her freedom of speech and religion rights.
Rhode Island officials gave Ms Blair a two-year ban from her local park and library because she shared Jesus with the Bible's Gospel of John to anyone who was interested. Now the Memorial and Library Association who runs the park and Westerly Library, says she can’t do that anymore.
Apparently some library association members called the police complaining that Ms Blair was “accosting” park visitors. Last July 2019, the Westerly PD asked her to leave the park and informed her that she was trespassing. On Tuesday, June 17, 2020 Ms Blair, represented by law firms First Liberty Institute and William Wray Jr. and Adler Pollock & Sheehan P.C., filed a discrimination complaint with the Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights against the library association. In the complaint, Ms Blair, who worked as a nurse until 1991 and suffered from a disorder that caused gradual vision loss, says she was banned “because of [the Associations’s] unlawful discrimination against me on the basis of my disability and my religious beliefs.”
The Lord Jesus commanded His disciples to go and preach His good news.

No Time For Timid Faith!
Wail for the day of the Lord is near; as destruction from the Almighty it will come. The Lord comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it!
6-18-20, Archives of David Wilkerson 2010 AD -- Take a look at the current condition of the USA and the world. What do you see? Christ’s prophecy is being fulfilled before our very eyes: “On the earth distress of nations, with perplexity … men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26).
The apostle Paul speaks of this time: “When they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them” (1 Thessalonians 5:3). Paul is describing a people who live smugly and securely, boasting, “We’ve achieved success and peace. Everything is going along just fine.” Yet, at the very moment people feel most secure, destruction comes. Suddenly, the security they cherished vanishes and society is overwhelmed by fear.
[Note: In 2020 before the Covid virus scare, most Americans did feel safe and secure as President Trump's plans were succeeding ... then disaster struck with the virus lockdown and now the rioting and mayhem. Yet we are not to fear as God’s strong delusion may be in effect ... 2 Thessalonians 10-12 and if not - He still isn't surprised at the wicked behaviors of the God haters and baby killers in America. All will be well we have the peace that passes understanding. Philippians 4:7 Hallelujah!--Annette]
Our Captain, The Lord Jesus is calling us to stand up in the midst of a fearful society and engage in “power faith.” We are to make the declaration: “God sent me before you to … save your lives by a great deliverance” (Genesis 45:7). When the world is reeling from disasters, with sorrows mounting on all sides, God will be calling forth faithful soldiers who have been trained for battle. These devoted men and women have endured trials and emerged with a sure faith. The power of God rests on them. Such power may not be seen on a grand scale; it may be seen only in simple ways: a smile in a sea of frowns, a peaceful demeanor in turmoil no fear in mind and body as others tremble.
Joel 2:1, 11, 30-31; Isaiah 13:6, 17:12; Ezekiel 32:7; Luke 21:24; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20

Sunday, June 21, 2020: Rare Ring of Fire Eclipse from Book of Joshua to Appear Over Israel
"the sun stood still & the moon stayed until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies [the Amorites]. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven & hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man [Joshua]: for the LORD fought for Israel."
History: On August 21, 2017 the complete solar eclipse transversed the continental United States many believe it ushered in the most devastating hurricane season in US history. Eclipse of the Sun is considered a bad omen.
Sunday, June 21, 2020, 7:26 to 9:26 am in Israel
Annular Solar Eclipse Will Occur
6-16-20, Breaking Israel News -- A rare annular solar eclipse will appear in the heavens over Israel on Sunday, June 21, 2020. According to experts, this type of eclipse described as a “ring of fire” was responsible for Israel's victory under Joshua against the Amorites and the miraculous ‘stopping of the sun’ during battle exactly 3,227 years ago.
The eclipse will be visible in appx 37 mile wide path traversing Israel, Africa, Pakistan, India and China. It will be visible in Israel for two hours from 7:26 AM to 9:26 AM local time, reaching its peak one hour later about 8:26 AM and disappear at 9:26 AM. The sun will be 99% obscured by the moon, making the sun’s corona appear as a "ring of fire" [Zechariah 2:5] around the dark circle of the moon.
In its discussion of eclipses, the Hebrew Talmud that is commentative and interpretative writings that hold a place in the Jewish religious tradition (Sukkot 29a) specifically described solar eclipses as being a bad omen for the nations who base their calendars on the solar cycle. “When Israel does the will of the place (God), they have nothing to fear from all of this,” citing the Prophet Jeremiah as a source. [Jeremiah 23:3; Zechariah 1:12, 16] Thus said Hashem [God]: Do not learn to go the way of the nations, And do not be dismayed by portents in the sky; Let the nations be dismayed by them! Jeremiah 10:2
Researchers Attribute the Bible Account of the Sun Stopping for Joshua to an Annular Eclipse: In a paper published in the scientific Journal Astronomy and Geophysics in 2017, researchers from England’s Cambridge University confirmed a theory first suggested by Israel's Ben Gurion University researchers: that Joshua’s miraculous ‘stopping of the sun’ during a battle to allow the Israelites more time to defeat their enemies was actually an annular solar eclipse.
They even pinpointed the exact date – the afternoon of October 30, precisely 3,224 years ago when Joshua led the Israelites into battle with the armies of five kings in order to help the besieged Gibeonites, with whom they had signed a peace pact. In the battle as the Israelites began to gain the upper hand, Joshua prayed for the sun and the moon to stand still in order to complete the defeat. His prayers were answered. Joshua 10:13 -->
<-- The Cambridge researchers understood this passage as an important historical account: “Modern English translations, which follow the King James translation of 1611 Bible, usually interpret this text to mean that the sun and moon stopped moving, but going back to the original Hebrew text, we determined that an alternative meaning could be that the sun and moon just stopped doing what they normally do: they stopped shining. In this context, the Hebrew words could be referring to a solar eclipse, when the moon passes between the earth and the sun and the sun appears to stop shining.”
He added that the interpretation was supported by the fact that the Hebrew word meaning ‘stand still’ shares a root with a Babylonian word describing eclipses found in ancient astronomical texts.
The Ben Gurion study based its conclusion on how it was even described in the Book of Joshua as being an annular eclipse because the Bible specifies that the moon was also involved. [As described above, an annular eclipse occurs when the moon passes in between the sun and the earth.] They interpreted the word “dom,” which only occurs one other time in the Bible (Psalms 37:7), not as “stand still,” which is how it is traditionally read, but to mean “become dark.”
Their research revealed that there was only one total solar eclipse that occurred in the region between the years 1500-1000 BC, when the Israelites are believed to have entered the land.
The eclipse allowed them to date the battle precisely to 4:28 p.m. on October 30, 1207 BC.
With the help of the Merneptah Stele, an Egyptian artifact which independently confirms the Israelites’ presence in Canaan, historians have dated Joshua’s entry into the land to between 1500 and 1050 BC. Using complex calculations, the researchers determined that the only annular eclipse visible from the Canaan during that period took place in October of 1207 BC. The path of this eclipse passed directly over Canaan.

No False Witness
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”
6-15-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- There are several important and very specific words used in this commandment not to tell falsehoods. [Exodus 20:16] An expanded translation could well be: “Do not purposely intend to injure or plan to deceive others by repeating a damaging report about one with whom you have established a relationship.”
The very idea of a lie originated with the great enemy, Satan (John 8:44; 1 John 2:21), no doubt rendering the lying tongue an abomination to God (Proverbs 6:17-19; 12:22).
The willing false witness will not escape punishment (Proverbs 19:5, 9). Indeed, such a person may die prematurely (Acts 5:4-10).
Untruth is not overlooked by God. In fact, those who are “liars” by practice will likely [unless they repent and turn to the Lord Jesus, Luke 13:3] wind up in hell (Revelation 21:8, 27; 22:15).
While the focus of this commandment prohibits a “formal” false witness against someone—which would result in damage to their person, property, or reputation—the biblical applications are many and varied. Our holy God hates a false witness.
So-called “half truths” are not godly, either. Flattery and hypocrisy are wrong (Psalm 12:1-3; Proverbs 29:5), as are malicious joking and jesting (Proverbs 26:18-19; Ephesians 5:4). Even deceptive refusals are considered ungodly behavior (Proverbs 3:27-29; 1 John 3:17-18). And, of course, slander, gossip, and “tale bearing” are wrong (Psalm 101:5).
Those who name the name of Jesus Christ are, simply, to speak the truth (Ephesians 4:25), render sound judgment (1 Corinthians 6:1-5), and not to enter into a plot to do evil (Zechariah 7:9-10; Romans 12:9, 17, 21). Our “yes” and our “no” are to be precise and accurate (James 5:12). Source
US In Moral Freefall
As Everyone Does What Is Right In Their Own Eyes
"In those days Israel had no king; all the people
did whatever seemed right in their own eyes."
Judges 17:6, 18:1, 19:1, 21:25; Deuteronomy 12:8; Psalm 12:4, 73:9
6-15-20, * -- The conclusion of Len Munsil, President of the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University comments: "The consequences of rejecting God's truth are undeniable. We know that what we believe dictates how we behave. Today, we are seeing the moral breakdown permeating the culture around us, and it is playing out with devastating consequences in our culture."
The new Barna Group poll revealed 58 percent of respondents said they look to themselves or other people when making moral decisions. Less than one third said that they look to God of the Holy Bible. A total of 58% of U.S. adults agreed that identifying moral truth is up to each individual; there are no constant moral absolutes applying everyone; and sadly, 48 percent of adults who identified as born-again Christians agreed.
The Cultural Research Center also found that the type of church the person attends often corresponded with their answer. People associated with a mainline Protestant congregation were most likely to rely upon themselves for moral wisdom (34%) Catholics were most likely to turn to other people (34%). Evangelical church attendees (72%), Pentecostal church attendees (70%) and born-again Christians (69%) were among the most likely to say God is the basis of all truth.
Political conservatives were also most likely to rely upon the Bible (40%), while moderates (17%) and liberals (11%) were least likely, instead relying on their own feelings, beliefs, and knowledge for moral direction.
Most troubling the moral views of the youngest generation indicate this downward moral trajectory and is likely to continue. Americans age 18 to 29 are least likely--only 15%--to turn to the Bible for moral guidance and instead look to themselves (29%) or to family (25%). This compares with about one-quarter of older Americans, including 23% of those ages 30 to 49, 25% of those 50 to 64, and 26% of those over 64.
However, a sizeable percentage of young people still look to their family for moral guidance. It's important for parents and other family members to look for opportunities to share moral truth.
Dr. George Barna said that he was not surprised at the results of the survey as he has observed America's departure from its historic religious foundational moorings for decades he said:
"The restoration of biblical truth can facilitate the turnaround of a declining society. It starts with churches relentlessly and consistently teaching biblical truth principles for practical application within all dimensions of life. It requires churches equipping parents to teach those truth principles to their children. It demands parents placing their young people in educational, relational, and entertainment environments where God's truth principles are respected and practiced. It advances by electing public officials who pass civil laws in harmony with God's religious Law. Restoring our foundations will be neither easy nor quick, but such a turnaround can happen if a remnant of God's people devotes themselves to such a process of cultural deliverance."
Why Would God Spare America When He Did Not Spare Israel?
God said: “When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered & the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; & the thief cometh in, & the troop of robbers spoileth without... & they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before My face. They make the king glad with their wickedness & the princes with their lies. V10The pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek Him for all this. v13 Woe unto them! for they have fled from Me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against Me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against Me.” Hosea 7:1-16

It's Not a Black vs White Matter
It's a spiritual matter ... God is the "JUDGE!"
God said, "What nation is so great as to have righteous statutes and ordinances like this entire law I set before you today?" vs 7 ...the LORD abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment."
6-11-20, 🌷 Black Lives Matter & Defund the Police are not easy subjects for pastors to approach, because they are emotive. Pastor Steve Cioccolanti points us to the Holy Bible to heal the political divide and deal with the painful issues.
In the days of the Hebrews wandering in the wilderness they had disagreements and issues requiring a lawful solution ... they had no police - today we need more of the Lord Jesus and obedience to God's statutes and precepts and less of selfish mankind. Violation to God's command #9 ... liars besmirching all that's good in the USA law enforcement has horrible effects on the good that is America.
God's Ten Commandments [Exodus 20:1-17; Deuteronomy 5:1] were designed for Israel’s immediate blessing by setting forth righteous principles that would show them how to love God and their fellow man thus producing a stable and secure society as well as a testimony to the nations (Deuteronomy. 4:6-8).
The Mosaic Law represented an ethical code given by God to govern mankind until the coming of Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ representing God's moral laws and righteous principles vital to a harmonious humanity.
Today the righteous principles, the eternal laws of God, have been carried over and are part of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ (Romans 8:2, 4) or the law of Christ (1 Corinthians 9:21; Galatians 6:2). The end of the Mosaic law, including the Ten Commandments, does not cancel or detract one iota from the eternal moral law of God. The moral principles of the ten laws did not begin with Sinai, but are as eternal and immutable as the character of God. To understand this should dispel the fears of those who think the abolition of the Mosaic law leaves only a state of lawlessness. The moral principles embodied in God's Law shows that such principles are the goal of the born again Christian's Spirit-directed life.
The nations function under a Babylonian system of justice ...

Drawing from the Source
God said, “For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters and hewed them out broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Jeremiah 2:13; John 14:6
6-13-20, For born again [John 3:3, 7] believers in Christ Jesus our contentment should be governed by inner attitude and the decisions we make rather than by external circumstances. The Apostle Paul understood what it meant to live in Christ and to have Christ living in him (John 15:1-9; Gal. 5:22-23). He had made a simple but profound faith decision to draw his life from the Lord. As a result, although greatly persecuted and imprisoned, he had inner calm assurance that – as a child of the Almighty he had full access to the abundant life Jesus offers; regardless of current circumstances.
When we draw only from Him as our source rather than from our flesh, feelings and outside influence … the Lord Jesus gives us His peace with the ability to respond as He would. Hallelujah! Source: Charles Stanley
Wicked Mankind Is Due for a Comeuppance
6-13-20, It's foolish for modern mankind to believe that, although God harshly punished: [Luke 17:26-30]

- hurled fire and brimstone on Sodom & Gomorrah [Genesis 19:24]
- flooded Noah's earth [Genesis 8:13]
Four Possible Conclusions Who Jesus Christ Was
The Quest for Historical Jesus
"Who do you say that I Am?
Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”
For in Him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily."
Matthew 16:15; John 8:58; Colossians 2:9
1942, C. S. Lewis* -- There are four possible conclusions we may make regarding the man/God Jesus Christ he was:
Which was He?
The only logical conclusion is that Jesus was the Son of God:
After daily closely observing His life, His disciples reached their conclusions: ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God!’ Matthew 16:16

'Cleanliness Next to Godliness'
America Filth of Mind and Body?
God said: "Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before My eyes; cease to do evil."
King David said: "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."
Peter said: "Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water."
6-11-20, In 1605 AD the first expression or use of this phrase: 'Cleanliness Next to Godliness' was found in English literature of the proverb in the writings of a philosopher and scientist Sir Francis Bacon who wrote, “Cleanness of body was ever deemed to proceed from a due reverence to God.”
In 1778 AD the popular Anglican cleric and theologian, John Wesley made a similar reference in a sermon: “Slovenliness is no part of religion...cleanliness is indeed next to godliness.”
In the New Testament the word 'cleanse' often refers to sin being removed. [Hebrews 10:22]
Currently in the United States of America wickedness of murdering innocent babes in the womb, legalizing homosexual marriage and the reality of true literal "filth" of the flesh is being broadcasted in our city streets. Our modern understanding of how diseases are transmitted truly display the folly of governments to permit THIS filth while quarantining people for fear of the flu. With the current abomination of humans relieving themselves in areas open to other humans ... the ancient disease 'the Black Plague' has resurfaced in the USA [here].
First 'Rest Room' as designed by God Who said: “Thou shalt have a place outside the camp, whither thou shalt go: And thou shalt have a shovel upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee: For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, therefore shall thy camp be holy: that He see no unclean thing.” Deuteronomy 23:12-14
The Second Coming of the Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ
✝️ The Lord Jesus' return will be personal, visible & glorious. The dead [those asleep] will be raised and those born again believers who are alive and remain will be caught up to be with Him forevermore. Hallelujah!
Mark 13:30, 37; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23, 26, 43, 52; 1 Thessalonians 4:17
6-10-20, Moody Bible -- Before the Lord Jesus establishes His kingdom on earth, He will come for His Church, an event commonly referred to as the "Rapture." At that time the dead in Christ will be raised and living born again believers ‘The Church” [John 3:3, 7] will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and be with Him forever. [1 Corinthians 15:51–54; 1 Thessalonians 4:14] Christians living at the time of this event will not die, but will be changed to be like Christ. [1 John 3:2]
The Rapture will inaugurate a period that the Bible characterizes as the "great day of His wrath," "time of Jacob's trouble.” [Revelation 6:17; 7:14; Jeremiah 30:7]
At the end of the trouble, Jesus Christ will return with the hosts of heaven as well as the Church to establish the Messianic Kingdom on earth.
[Revelation 19:7–9, 14-16; 1 Thessalonians 3:13; Zechariah 14:9] His Kingdom will last for a thousand years [Revelation 20:2, 4–6] and Satan with his minions will be cast into the Lake of Fire. [Revelation 19:11, 20; 20:1–3]
Christians will be judged [Romans 14:10–12; 2 Corinthians 5:10]; also nations. [Joel 3; Matthew 25:1] Israel will be restored. [Amos 9:15; Ezekiel 34:28] Christ will reign with firmness and equity. [Psalm 2:9; Isaiah 11:4] His kingdom will be marked by material and spiritual blessing, since the curse upon the earth will be removed. [Romans 8:19-21; Rev 22:3]
There will be a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness is the norm. [2 Peter 3:13] There will be a new Jerusalem and the everlasting presence of God among all the redeemed. [Revelation 21:2, 3; 22:3–5]
