I once had a pastor that said we should see the gray in a black and white world.  I knew that was the day I needed to move on because it is exactly backwards of what God calls us to do and be.  We are to be the light to the world.  The white light, erasing blackness and the gray.  We are at a point which this world is calling good, evil and evil, good.  We must stand strong and pray that God will give us the strength to remain standing firm.  Through Him all things are possible.

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile.  He writes:

“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5

What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law.  But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.

“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.” – Romans 10:9

Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved.  It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.

It is The Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To learn more check out the following link.

It is such a slippery slope we are on, things are picking up speed as we hurl toward Christ’s return.  You can see the hedge of protection being lifted all around us as our society truly becomes a non-christian society.  The speed of events is simply overwhelming.

As I have read articles over the last few weeks (some listed below), I am shocked by the speed of events, even though I know they are coming I still find myself taken aback.  We must reach out to the lost and spiritually captive before it is too late.  Be the light during these dark times.  Simplify our lives, become not of this world but merely living in it as a beacon of light because the end is drawing near and will be upon us when they do not expect it, in the blink of any eye.

Matthew 24 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Signs of Christ’s Return

24 Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him. And He said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”

As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14 This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Supreme Court extends gay marriage nationwide
The Supreme Court declared Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States, a historic culmination of two decades of litigation over gay marriage and gay rights generally. Gay and lesbian couples already could marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court’s 5-4 ruling means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage.

Hidden camera: ‘Gays’ admit they’re not ‘born that way’
Many of the “gays” he interviewed, he says, not only were molested in their youth but went on to become molesters themselves.

Muslim Terrorist Beheads Man in France Attack
A Muslim terrorist attacked a gas factory in eastern France on Friday, pinning a decapitated head to the gates and wounding at least two others with explosive devices before being arrested.

Vatican Signs Historic First Accord with ‘Palestine’
The Vatican on Friday signed an historic first accord with “Palestine,” two years after officially recognizing the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a state. The accord, a treaty covering the life and activity of the Church in Judea and Samaria, was the first since the Vatican made the controversial step of recognition in February 2013. Signing international treaties unilaterally is a breach of the 1993 Oslo Accords which created the PA.

So often what we receive is a thin layer of Christian doctrine, history, and overall understanding of God’s word, but there is so much more.  As you dive into God’s word, it comes alive and I am constantly amazed at the depths of the wisdom and the foreshadowing that is on every page of the Bible when we take the time to explore it.

It really is true, “seek and ye shall find”.

Jack Kelly does a great job unpacking the Olivet Discourse as you may not have heard it before.

The Olivet Discourse…Luke’s Version

By Jack Kelley

Students of prophecy often pay more attention to Matthew’s version of the Olivet Discourse because of its greater length and detail. But when we bypass Luke’s account, we miss one third of the Lord’s message. That’s because the disciples asked the Lord three questions and in Matthew 24 He only answered the last two. Also, it’s Luke’s answer to their first question that confirms the whole message as it relates to the end times.

Here’s why: When a prophet revealed events that would take place beyond the lifetimes of the people he was speaking to, the Lord often provided a short term partial fulfillment to validate the distant prophecy. This is because He had told the people that if what a prophet said didn’t come true, then the people were not to fear him, for he hadn’t spoken for the Lord (Deut 18:21-22).

There are numerous partial fulfillments in Scripture that would serve as good examples of this, but perhaps the clearest one comes from John 5:43. Speaking to Israel, Jesus said, “I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.” He was referring to the Antichrist, who many in Israel will believe to be the Messiah when he comes on the scene at the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week.

But just before Jesus was handed over to be executed, Pilate offered to free Him as a sign of Roman mercy, traditionally expressed on Passover. He gave the people a choice, the innocent Jesus who came in His Father’s name or a convicted killer named, Barabbas, who came in his own name. The people chose Barabbas. It was the partial fulfillment that validated the Lord’s prophecy of Israel and the Antichrist in the 70th Week.

And as we’ll see, the destruction of Jerusalem in 69AD was the partial fulfillment that validated the Lord’s prophecy of the End Times. Let’s take a look.

Luke 21:5-36

“Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God.  But Jesus said, ‘As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.’ ‘Teacher,’ they asked, ‘When will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?’” (Luke 21:5-7).

According to Mark 13:3, it was Peter, James, John and Andrew who asked. And in Matt. 24:3 we can read their complete question. “When will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

This is our first hint that things will be different in Luke’s account. He only has the disciples asking the first question, the one about their immediate future.

Pope Francis on ISIS persecution of Christians: ‘We are in World War Three’
“Pope Francis told us privately that he believes we are in World War Three,” said Ronald S. Lauder, the head of the World Jewish Congress.

Scientists Admit Defeat And Ask Pope Francis To Help Combat Global Warming
In what is being described as a ‘watershed moment’, a group of scientists have called on Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church to help combat global warming. It sounds a rather bizarre relationship doesn’t it? relying on politicians to combat global warming is not enough and that engaging faith leaders could be just the spark required to ignite billions of people around the world into changing aspects of their lifestyles to prevent… climate change.

False Christs Arising Worldwide Claiming to Be Second Coming of Jesus
A number of false Christs have been arising in various nations worldwide, claiming to be the second coming of Jesus. While many are following these self-proclaimed Messiahs, some are speaking out against their cults, being mindful of Christ’s words in Matthew 24:5, “For many shall come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ,’ and shall deceive many.”

Poll: Liberals Ignore Religion, Value Teaching Tolerance
A new survey by the Pew Research Center shows that liberals think teaching tolerance to children is far more important than instilling religious faith, whereas conservatives think the exact opposite. Pew points to increasing political polarization as a reason for major divergence between conservatives and liberals on what to teach children.

U.N. to deploy Ebola mission as death toll reaches 2,630
The United Nations Security Council on Thursday declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa a “threat to international peace and security” as the death toll hit 2,630… Since then the virus has infected at least 5,357 people, according to World Health Organization (WHO), mostly in Guinea, neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia. It has also spread to Senegal and Nigeria.

The End of European Jewry? 80% Assimilation Rate

There are some amazing headlines today on the 13th anniversary of 9/11.

One in particular jumped out at me as the stage setting for what will bring about Ezekiel 38.  As you well know Ezekiel 38 is different from other aggression against Israel in that it is said the motive is to take spoils and loot, not drive the Jews into the sea and annihilate them, which is the motivator for all other aggression.

I think the Israel’s recent world leading gas reserves that were found exactly where God said they would be, will be the hook that pulls Russia (Gog) down into the region.  Israel will step up and break the monopoly that Russia has today on Europe gas supply.  See the lead article below, on how they are using the supply as a “weapon” to combat sanctions.

The stage is being set, which means the return of our Lord and Savior is still closer yet!

Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

Russia stokes tensions with the west by cutting gas exports to Poland
A decision by Russia to cut gas exports to Poland without warning has rekindled fears about Europe’s reliance on Siberian gas at a time of increasing tension between Moscow and the west. The Polish state energy group, PGNiG, said it was trying to find out why volumes had been slashed by up to 24% when it had been exporting gas itself to Ukraine to make up for Russian shortfalls there.

Obama and Presidential Hubris
When a nation’s chief executive presumes to be the sole judge of what’s “right” for his nation he has crossed the fine line between a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people” and a regime that cavalierly sets aside what might be the will of the people for the chief’s own idea of what is “right.” Such a person has gone from being a leader to a controller.

Putin is under Satan’s influence, says leader of Kiev Orthodox Church
President Vladimir Putin has fallen under the spell of Satan and faces eternal damnation unless he repents, a top Ukrainian clergyman said in an unusually blunt statement that squarely blamed the Russian leader for the war in Ukraine. “With great regret I must now say publicly that among the rulers of this world … there has appeared a new Cain, not by his name but by his deeds,” Patriarch Filaret said on Saturday, invoking the Biblical character who killed his brother Abel.

No Saudi ban over Ebola for Nigerians going on haj – Arab News
Saudi Arabia, which has barred pilgrims from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea from the haj due to Ebola concerns, will allow Nigerians to attend, an official was reported on Monday as saying, suggesting the smaller outbreak there was less worrying.

Eruption Update: Earthquake Activity Continuing
Around 20 earthquakes were measured in the Bárðarbunga area between midnight and 6:30 am, which is about half the number of events detected during the same period yesterday, according to the latest report from the Icelandic Met Office. The largest earthquake last night measured magnitude 5.3 and occurred shortly after midnight at the southern caldera rim of Bárðarbunga.

Cardinal: U.S. ‘Creed’ on Gay Marriage Like Sharia Law
Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic archdiocese of Chicago, said the levers of power in government, education, entertainment, and media are enforcing a “public creed,” a “fake church” that requires all citizens to approve of gay marriage and related sexual anomalies or be punished by the State, just “as Christians and Jews are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law.”

“Extreme” solar storm streaking towards Earth, scientists say
An extreme solar flare is blasting its way to Earth and could mess up some power grids, satellites and radio transmissions, scientists say. It’s been several years since Earth has had a solar storm of this size coming from sunspots smack in the middle of the sun, said Tom Berger, director of the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado.

Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage At Middle East Christian Conference
Sen. Ted Cruz was booed offstage at a conference for Middle Eastern Christians Wednesday night after saying that “Christians have no greater ally than Israel.”

EU delays sanctions talks as Russia withdraws in Ukraine
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has pledged greater autonomy for the separatist east but says that would not compromise Kiev’s control. He has also said that 70 per cent of Russian forces had left the east, greatly improving security in the region and enhancing chances of a fragile truce.

Islamic State crisis: Obama threatens action in Syria

Matthew 24:42-44New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Be Ready for His Coming

42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 But [a]be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be [b]broken into. 44 For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.
