ARE YOU ON THE VERGE….?

Do you feel often over burdened, over whelmed, and over come with all life’s tasks? Well you are not alone. A lot of people in this day and age feel that way. Jesus came to give us the answer in his Word. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30). If your burden is not easy and lite, then you have taken on to much, and to much of anything is not good. The Lord doesn’t want you to wear yourself out. Maybe you should Pray about this and take one thing at a time. Remember it only takes one straw of to much weight to break a camels back. Don’t let the enemy keep you from the peace and rest and joy that Jesus wants to give you, God is a jealous God who’s name is Jealous. (Exodus 34:14). So don’t let the devil deceive you and make a God out of God’s service. Ask Jesus to help you get a good balance.“A false balance is an abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.” (Proverbs 11: 1). The enemy which is the devil wants to keep you stressed out, and he even wants to kill you and destroy your witness. If you don’t have time for the Word and Prayer then you are letting the enemy rob you from the joy the Lord gives. “neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength”. ( Nehemiah 8:10b). Remember the reason you were created was to Love the Lord Thy God and Enjoy his creation forever. My peace I leave with you. “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27). “ casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1Peter 5:7). “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” (Isaiah 26:3). I suggest you set down with the Lord and make a list of all your priorities and take them one at a time, and not try to do everything all at once or even in the same day. Do few things but do them well. Take your time go slowly. Speed kills, Hast makes waste. When your in a hurry you miss things, lose things , forget things and wear out quickly. So if you want to live a happy life, please read all these things slowly. “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalms 46:10). “If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5).

SAY THIS PRAYER IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVED

Dear Jesus Christ, Please come into my Heart, I now accept you as my Savior, The only begotten Son of God ,I Believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead, Please forgive me of all my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit, to give me the power to be a witness and to preach the Gospel in all the world. AMEN.

ARE YOU ON THE INCREASE OR ARE YOU ON THE DECREASE?

I HOPE YOU are doing both, letting Jesus INCREASE IN YOU and yourself decreasing. “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30). “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.”(1Timothy 1:16).“being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” (Philippians 1:6). I hope and pray that when my kids and people I know see me again that they will think that I have sure changed and that I am more kind and loving and patient and full of Faith and Peace, like Jesus. (Ephesians 4:32) says… “and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” “I am no longer I.” (Galatians 2:20) says… “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” That is my goal, to follow Jesus and be more like him everyday. The Bible says in (Matthew 6:33), “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”(John 17:3). If we are not happy it is because we are not letting Jesus increase in us. By doing this we can have a little bit of Heaven right now. “knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”(James 1:3-4). “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”(Matthew 22:37-40). “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30).I just want more of Jesus in my life, I hope you do too.

SAY THIS PRAYER IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVED

Dear Jesus Christ, Please come into my Heart, I now accept you as my Savior, The only begotten Son of God ,I Believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead, Please forgive me of all my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit, to give me the power to be a witness and to preach the Gospel in all the world. AMEN.

ETERNAL VIGILANCE

“My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life Put away from thee a froward mouth,
and perverse lips put far from thee Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.”(Proverbs 4:20-27). “neither give place to the devil.” (Ephesians 4:27).

The spirit world is where are thoughts come from. Like the little boy said, If a thought tells me to do bad it is from the devil if the thought tells me to do good it is from the LORD. That is why we have to guard our hearts and minds from the evil. Which is from the devil,and listen to that which is only good from GOD. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”(Philippians 4:8). Jesus fought the devil with the WORD, the more WORD you have memorized the stronger and sharper your spiritual sword will be to fight the forces of darkness. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrew 4:12). We need to always be on guard, as the enemy can attack at any minute day or night. So keep your sword sharpened and next to you. It is hard to grow in the spirit if you don’t get strong in the word. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance, and freedom is only one generation away, so train up your children in the ways of the Lord. “If you love me feed my sheep”. (John 21:15-17).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

“BECOME ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN”

“For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; to them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the Gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.” (1 Corinthians 9:19-23). It really helps when you are trying to witness to someone to lead them to Jesus if you pray and ask the Lord for the gift of discernment to hear and see the background of the people you are trying to win to Jesus. It helps many times to try and get on their level and reach out to them and find some common ground to relate on and even make friends with them. “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Proverbs 18:24). Maybe it’s time that we looked at things differently concerning all the multitudes of people who are coming across the borders. Yes there are some who want to do evil and bring in drugs and trafficking and terrorism and they need to be checked out, but for the most part many are just trying to survive and looking for a better life for themselves and their families. We as Christians need to look upon them as Jesus did; “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:36-38). Could it be that the Lord is letting them come here so that you and I can tell them about Jesus and get them saved? There is no greater power than the love of Jesus Christ, and the preaching of the Cross. Dear Lord Jesus, Where there is fear let me bring comfort. Where there is darkness let me bring light. Where there is discouragement let me bring hope. Where there is evil and hate let me bring Love and Salvation.

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

DEJA VU’S AND PREMONITIONS

I think we should pay close attention to Deja vu’s and Premonitions because it might be the Lord trying to speak to us and show us his will. My daughter Michelle told me she has them all the time. “And it shall come to pass afterward, 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:” (Joel 2:28 Old Testament ). “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:” (Acts 2:17 New Testament). The expression Déjà vu is derived from the French, meaning “already seen.” The feeling of déjà vu, is an experience wherein you feel an overwhelming sense of familiarity. The Webster’s Dictionary definition for Premonition is: to warn in advance, previous notice or warning: FORWARNING: anticipation of an event without conscious reason. In other words Deja vu and Premonitions are and experience that comes right out of the spirit World where time does not exist, where you can time travel into the future or past, a spiritual time overlap into the future or past. Please see our teaching on “Hearing the Voice of God” in www.answersintheword.com. Because that is what you need to do immediately when having these experiences. God is trying to warn us or confirm his will. “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:” ( Isaiah 55:6). “Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17-19). This brings us to another subject, Predestination. I don’t believe the Lord has predestined us in every little thing we do, certain things are predestined, such as children that the Lord uses us to bring into this World, and Bible Prophecy that must be fulfilled but a lot of our fate is controlled by us and our desires. In God’s plan and in God’s heart he wants everyone to be saved and to love him and enjoy his creation and help others to do the same. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9). “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5). “and ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.” (John 15:27). “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29). “in whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:” (Ephesians 1:11). I don’t believe that the Lord will be happy and satisfied until everyone has been saved,and his creation restored as he originally wanted it to be before the Devil sinned and rebelled no matter how long it takes.

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD, JESUS, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33).

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.” (Isaiah 55:8). Do you like new mysteries or would you just rather stay where you are? “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.” (Acts 20:27). God loves a mystery and he loves to show his children mysteries of his creation and his WORD. Our calling in www.answersintheword.com is to tell the World “The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth” so help us God. The problem could that is, that you sometimes make people upset and even angry with you. Like Paul said; “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you The Truth?” (Galatians 4:16),and Jesus said; “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you!” (Luke 6:26a).From telling the whole shocking truth about God, Jesus and The Holy Ghost, and the Bible, you certainly can’t expect to get a lot of money or donations or praise of man. Jesus said; “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.” (John 16:12), “Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?” (John 6:60-61). When Jesus spoke to the people it made them mad, sad, or glad. So if you want to dive into the depths of the spiritual water of the WORD then www.answesintheword.com might be your cup of tea. But if you just want to put your toe into the water and not go any further into the depths of the living water of God’s Word then you can certainly find that in one of the average run of the meal Churches where they hardly get passed Salvation, if they get that far and get it right. My grandson Caleb said he would rather dive into the Word and teachings in www.answersintheword.com and get the heavy deep stuff. Since we are in the End Times the Lord wants to give you the deep truths of his Word, however shocking that maybe to some people. So enjoy what the Lord has for you. “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” (Psalms 119:18).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

DECISIONS

Everyday we are faced with decisions. The Lord didn’t make us robots, but he gave us a free will to decide what path we want to follow. We should always say, Lord willing when we tell people what we are going to do. “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.” ( James 4:13-16). Many of the decisions that are placed before us are a test of our faith as the Lord is watching us to see what we will do. “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9a). “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3). Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.” (Psalm 139: 7-12). King David knew this and he said; “ So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.” (Psalm 73:22). Every time the devil or his demons remind you of your past mistakes and sins, just say Thank you Jesus for your Blood that washes away all sins and the devil will flee from you. “but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1John 1:7). “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” (James 4: 7-10). Of course the main decision that we will ever make in this life is to receive Jesus Christ into our hearts as our Saviour, after that life is up to us and what we make of it from our own choices and decisions. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10). All things of this life shall surely pass and only what is done for Christ will Last. When your faced with a decision do you pray and ask the Lord what you should do, and listen to his still small voice? “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10). Remember that God gives the very best to those that leave the choices up to him, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33). The Lord really cares about you and the choices and decisions you make. Go to God’s Word to decide!

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

CLOSE TO HIM

“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Galatians 4:6). Jesus said, He will come into you if you open the door of your heart to him. “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelations 3:20). Jesus also said I will never leave you or forsake you, once you open the door to your heart and invite him into your heart. (Hebrews 13:5b). My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. (John 10:27-30). Notice he did not say I and my Father are one in the same, but they are one in unity of thought , mind , and spirit. This also includes the Holy Ghost which is part of the Trinity. See our class on “The Trinity Explained” in www.answersintheword.com. So when you ask Jesus to come into your heart he brings along with him, God The Father and The Holy Spirit. It is kind of an allegory if you think about it, like a woman who has twins, she has two other people in her body. When you ask Jesus to come into your heart you have four people inside of you, including yourself, you, Jesus,God The Father, and The Holy Ghost. They are so close to you that you can actually talk to them, and they can talk back to you. In fact they know and hear and see all that you think or do. Check out our class on “Is God a Mind Reader”. When you get saved and ask Jesus to come into your heart, you get a measure of the Holy Spirit. The more you obey God you will receive more of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 5:32). The Bible says about Jesus that that God did not give the Holy Spirit by measure unto him. “He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.  For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. (John 3:33-35). Jesus got the full power and anointing of the Holy Ghost when he was baptized by John The Baptist in 26AD ,fulfilling the Prophesy of Daniel Chapter 9. Be sure to study Daniel Chapter 9 in www.answersintheword.com.The World would say that we are crazy and have multiple personalities, or we are schizophrenic, and there is no cure for us because Jesus will never leave us no matter what they say or do. So talk to Jesus all the time he is right there with you and wants to be close to you and help you and comfort and strengthen you. “He must increase but I must decrease.” (John 3:30). Lord help us to let you be our pilot and we be the co-pilot.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

KICKS

When I was around 17 yrs old I thought I was really cool and on top of the world, invincible. I had plenty of money, a night club, a new sports car, lots of girl friends and what ever I wanted. I thought I had it made. I tried everything I played every game in the book and then I found there was nothing in this world to live for. I drove to a gas station, and the attendant came out to fill up my car, which is what they used to do back then, and by the way gas was only .26 cents per gallon. He was about my age and was wearing a crew cut hair style, which just wasn’t with the cool style back then, or at least in my way of thinking. I was setting there looking at the guy pumping the gas, and I asked him what he did for kicks? He was quiet for a moment, and then he turned and looked me straight in the eyes with authority and boldness and said to me “Jesus Christ is my kicks”. Well I couldn’t even answer him back, my whole little dream world had just been shattered, so I just paid him and drove off down the road. I thought WOW this guy had something that I didn’t have and he was willing to stand up for it and be counted, and he was not worried about what people thought about him. The thought came to me as I stopped by the side of the road, “if everyone would be like Jesus this world would be paradise” I just sat there for quite awhile contemplating what had just happened. I guess you could say I had a revelation which has stuck with me to this day over 50 years ago. You never know when the Lord will speak to you, or when you will have the opportunity to say something that can be life changing to someone else ! I’m sure glad he did. Let me ask you today what do you do for fun or kicks?

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

SIGNS OF THE END TIMES

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21-20-28).

“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.(SEE: our class on “The Book of Life” in www.answersintheword.com) And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life,(The Rapture) and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”(Daniel 12:1-4). Daniel the Prophet did not even understand all of the visions and dreams that the Lord gave to him, and he was troubled by them, but the Lord told him to just write them down and they would be revealed in The Time of The End. The Book of Daniel is now revealed for you in www.answersintheword.com. This is another reason we know that we are in The Time of The End. Also many shall run to and from their destinations. World travel was basically unheard of just a little over 100 years ago. Also knowledge has been greatly increased for a sign of the End Times. Just look at all the technological advances, in computers, science, space travel, health, etc. just in our life time, compared to 6,000 years since creation.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” (Matthew 24:3-7). Jesus gives us more signs of the end of the world in these verses. There are many deceptive teachers out there that want to lead you astray. So know the Word well, and don’t be deceived. If you study www.answersintheword.com and learn the teachings found therein well enough to teach others the Lord will greatly use you in these End Times. “but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” (Daniel 11:32b-35). We hear of wars and rumors of wars almost on a daily basis now in the news. Jesus tells us there will be famines, pestilence’s, like pandemics, and plagues, like Ebola, Sars, Corona Virus’s etc. as a sign of The End Times. Jesus also tells us there will be Earth Quakes in many places around the world, which is certainly happening in an unprecedented scale around the world today.

“The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken. The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways:
they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.” (Nahum 2:3-4). This is certainly a Prophesy that the Lord gave in a vision to Nahum the Prophet about cars in The End Times. “In the day of his preparation”

“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.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4). The Bible tells us that there will be a falling away first before Jesus gathers us together in The Rapture. This is very evident today as many are falling away from the Faith because they are not strong in the WORD. “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.”( 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:” (1 Timothy 4:1-4). Beloved this is obviously happening more and more today in these End Times. “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Timothy 3:7). “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13).

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of
the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.”

(Isaiah 11:11-14). Some key words in this prophecy are “second time” in verse 11. The Jews came back a Nation for the second time in history in May 14,1948. And “fly” in verse 14. This Prophecy was fulfilled in 1967 during the “Six Day War” when the Jews attacked the invading Arab Armies and destroyed them. This is a sign of The End Times that the Jews would become a Nation again for the second time. “When the Lord shall build up Zion,
he shall appear in his glory.” (Psalm 102:16). “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:29-30). “I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; will set in the desert the fir tree,
and the pine, and the box tree together: that they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.”(Isaiah 41:18-20). These End Time Prophecy’s were fulfilled after Israel became a Nation for the second time. Before 1948 it was a barren dry desert, but now it has even become a world leading exporter of fruit. “He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.”(Isaiah 27:6).
