Escaping This Prison Darkness

#883: Hello again folks! One of the huge blessings of accepting biblical flat earth cosmology is that you often look at the scriptures as if looking through a new set of glasses. For the last few months I have taken the opportunity to have an early morning prayer walk wherein I (naturally) pray, meditate and consider the Word of God. These thoughts came to me earlier this week ...

"Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed." (Acts 16:22-26)

Many believers are familiar with the account of Paul's jailbreak from the Philippian prison in the above text and how it led to the salvation of the Philippian jailor and his family. Doubtless the earthquake and miraculous opening of all the doors was headed up by an angel of the LORD.

What struck me was that this account reminds me of the promise of the LORD Jesus Christ to return to earth one day soon and call home (harpazo; seize) His saints (the living and the dead) in what is commonly known as the rapture. Note that we see believers singing and praising God in the midst of adversity before their rescue. Dare we ask whether Christians will be doing the same whilst they are under similar heavy persecution and are being martyred during the fifth seal? Food for thought indeed ...

When these events take place "immediately after the tribulation of those days" (Matthew 24:29), the LORD Jesus Christ appear and be seen by all after cranking aside the firmament of His power and will facilitate the miraculous departure from the prison (the Beast system of antichrist's New World Order) after the large earthquake during the sixth seal (Revelation 6:12) in much the same way that He released Paul and Silas back in the first century.

It's almost as if it is a token or precursor of what is just around the corner, prophetically speaking. It seems to me that taking the Bible literally opens up so many more streams of wisdom and revelation than when Christians inject the so-called wisdom of man and his false science in place of the literal Truth. Such is the amazing result of believing biblical flat earth cosmology and perceiving the Word and the Last Days in a new, vibrant light.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Real Bereans (Acts 17:11) are truly needed, watchmen must WARN, evangelists must COMPEL, do not be DECEIVED and WATCH that PERIPHERY!

Paradise or Prison, Heaven or Hell

#882: Hello again folks! There are various ways in which believers can convey the True Gospel regarding the two alternative eternal futures on offer to every man, woman and child who live and breathe today. Perhaps the next time the opportunity comes up, you could try this ...

You have two choices. Alternative #1 is that you can live in absolute luxury for a year, be waited on and enjoy every delicacy and delight before spending rest of your life in prison with no hope of parole or release. Alternative #2 is that you can spend a year in prison in the most dire of circumstances before spending the rest of your life in freedom and bliss.

In other words, you can either enjoy the pleasures of this world and then spend eternity eternally separated from God in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15) OR you can accept the LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour (John 14:6) be hated by all nations for His Names Sake (Luke 21:17) and endure a time of tribulation before spending eternity in perfect peace with God.

Believe it or not, this particular writer has seen and heard folks plump for alternative #1 on more than one occasion! This is the spiritual state of what is likely to be the last generation before the Millennium commences. It's galling and upsetting but challenging and a real opportunity to see the God perform His Word: "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God" (Luke 18:27). We should seek therefore redouble our efforts to reach the lost with the True Gospel by the way we live our lives, our testimony and (if required) with our words.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Life Lessons: Proverbs 24:16

"For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity." ~ Proverbs 24:16

#881: I remember reading Hebrews 6:4-6 and the LORD Jesus Christ's words regarding blasphemy of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31) when I was a young believer back in 1984 and becoming really concerned about losing my salvation and becoming a spiritual castaway. I also remember going to visit my then local vicar (the Reverend Roger Hinton) about this and he gave me some wise words that I've never forgotten. He said that if you are truly worried about having committed the unpardonable sin, then you haven't because you'd be spiritually dead and somewhat unconcerned if you were in that state. Whilst we should never presume on the grace of God and His plan for our lives, we should always be mindful of Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) and His Word on the subject of rejoicing over the salvation of the one repentant sheep (Luke 15:3-7) even though ninety nine (99) were already safely accounted for.

Yes, we should never take the sacrifice on the cross of the LORD Jesus Christ for granted but on the other hand we should acknowledge that from the moment we accept Jesus as our LORD and Saviour, we are a work in progress and He will "give you an expected end" (Jeremiah 29:11) if, ultimately, we allow Him to. Remember that spiritual heroes such as Moses and David both sinned but they were still used by God and ran their race. Christians should keep short accounts with their Lord yet we know (without abusing the efficaciousness of His Finished Work on the Cross via His shed blood) that we would have to go a long way to be beyond forgiveness. Perhaps that is why Solomon, inspired by the Holy Spirit, wrote in the selected scripture that a righteous man may fall seven times (a finite number and also God's number of completeness) as if looking forward to the perfect sacrifice of His Messiah.

Remember this also: As it is often in the physical, so also is it in the spiritual. If we fall in the natural, we should get up immediately. The longer we wait to get back up, the harder it is to start walking again until one day it becomes impossible. If we fall in the spiritual, we should also get up by getting right with God quickly lest He harden our hearts ...

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Life Lessons: Heed Those Weeds!

#880: Hello again folks! Having spent some time this Summer attempting to tidying up my back garden, I've once again had to address the perennial nuisance of the occurrence of those dreaded weeds.

It can be back breaking to spend hours extracting the plethora of dandelions and other annoying plants from your borders but well worth it when finished. Yet, like the sin that so easily besets us, it isn't long before those weeds return if we leave things be and don't keep on top of them. Much like if we don't keep regularly avoiding or confessing our sins, our walk with the Lord can go awry and He can seem so far away not so long after He felt so close to us in our walk. As it is in the natural, so it it is in the spiritual. The LORD Jesus Christ talked about something similar in Matthew 12 thus:

"When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation." (Matthew 12:43-45)

Weeds teach us one thing. If we don't keep tilling the ground, the weeds will be back and, likewise, if we don't live our lives in reverence to the LORD, bad habits and habitual sins will also return. Jesus taught us that even if a person is freed from their demons (literally), we might well end up in a much worse condition in the end than we were at the beginning - if we're not careful. Remember that He told the woman caught in adultery to "go, and sin no more" (John 8:3-11) after she had been brought before Him and He had released her. 

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Fake Plandemic Exposed Again

#879: The LORD Jesus Christ warned His disciples - and by extension true Christians - about deceptions so cunning, plausible and widespread in the last days that even the elect (His people) would be taken in. Indeed, He repeated the warning often in the Olivet Discourse (read Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21) as did the Apostles Peter and John in the their New Testament letters. The current CONvid-19 plandemic provides ample proof of this satanic ploy as we see governments impose ridiculous restrictions on their citizens such as social distancing, the wearing of masks and the effective banning of church attendance.

Perhaps more concerning is the fact that aside from the few brave doctors, nurses and clinicians who are questioning the current happenings such as Vernon Coleman, Kate Shemirani, Rashid Buttar, Andrew Kaufman, Sherri Tenpenny and Judy Mikovitz, there is a drive towards a wholesale mass vaccination campaign headed up and funded in part by known eugenicist Bill Gates. It is those vaccines (which do not work and have caused much death and misery) built on the easily disproven germ theory and the ensuing much touted COVI-PASS health passports that this writer believes will form the basis if not foundation of the long prophesied Mark of the Beast (United Nations one world government) as per Revelation 13:15-18.
We need in the above excerpt that not only is another prominent pathologist is not only terming the World Hell Organisation as "criminal" but is also stating that there is no evidence of a pandemic and no evidence of CONvid-19 specific antibodies as well as repeating the known facts that not only is the amplified RNA test completely unreliable but the so-called vaccine will (of course) be useless and likely a vehicle to implant and change the DNA of millions of people.

DECEPTION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME!

The purpose of this article is not to frighten or confuse believers but to inform them and promote the building up of their most holy faith in the Living and Written Word of God as the final time of testing arrives and the Second Advent of the LORD Jesus Christ comes into view. This is a time to share the True Gospel, be vigilant, to watch and to warn not only Christians but whosoever crosses our proverbial path as to what lies ahead and how near those days are.
