The first of the four blood moons – a tetrad


The first of the four blood moons that has been cosmologically noted by NASA occurred around 3:00 a.m. CDT this morning, April 15, 2014. This writer was up at 4:11 a.m. watching the stellar display in God Almighty’s heaven. According to Pastor Hagee and NASA there will be a total of four blood moon occurrences: the first one being this morning, April 15, 2014, also the beginning of Passover; the next one will be on October 8, 2014 which will be on the Feast of Tabernacles; the third blood moon will occur once again on Passover April 4, 2015; and finally, the fourth blood moon in this Tetrad will happen on September 28, 2015. As Pastor John Hagee stated “that these happenings occurring in what is known as a Blood Moon Tetrad is beyond the null hypothesis of probability.”

 

 

The Blood Moon that this writer witnessed was indeed a soft red in color since the sun’s rays were being blocked by the earth passing between the sun and moon. This writer also found it remarkable that a light breeze was blowing, though it was very cold, and the chimes on a nearby house were playing. In the awesome quiet of this early morning hour with the lunar eclipse turning blood red in the sky, it was as if the chimes were singing their own song of praise to the Creator of the universe. Shortly thereafter, the birds began to sing as well. It was totally awe inspiring this morning.

Interestingly, a video produced by Evangelist, Anita Fuentes lists some remarkable timelines: the blood moon on April 15, 2014 is in the sign of Virgo, which represents not only the Mother of Christ but the Bride of Christ as well. The blood moon that will happen on October 8, 2014 will be in the sign of Pisces, which is represented by two fishes; which also represents the two houses of Israel. Then again it will repeat during the Passover on April 4, 2015 and the Feast of Tabernacles on September 28, 2015. But even more importantly, on Adar 29 or March 20, 2015 there will be a ‘Sackcloth Sun’ which will also be in the sign of Pisces.

The fact that these four blood moons will be occurring on two of Israel’s feasts in 2014 and 2015 is phenomenal and has only been recorded before during the years of 1493-1494 when Spain fell; the Jews were expelled; and Columbus discovered America. Then in 1949-1950 after Israel became a nation and the last one was in 1967-1968 during Israel’s Six Day War. It seems that when these blood moon tetrads occur, there is a coinciding of happenings of great world events also occurring during these periods.

Is God, the Creator of the Universe trying to get our attention? Many say ‘yes’, and this writer being a faithful disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, says ‘yes’ as well. Let’s look at some of the Scriptures and they too cannot be ignored.

Luke 21:25-28

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.

Well the signs in the heavens have certainly been happening and there will be three more blood moons which will conclude on September 28, 2015. But in the middle of these four blood moons the sun will be darkened on Adar 29 or March 20, 2015. Let us now look at

Matthew 24:29-33

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. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Of course, there are some Christians sects that say that the foregoing Scripture refers only to the fall of Jerusalem which the Lord Jesus prophesied would happen in 70 A.D. However, there are many other Christians that believe that there are also what is called ‘double prophecies’ in the Scriptures; in other words, it happened once and it will happen again. Because if we conclude that these Scriptures are over and done with, then what happened to the 1000 year millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ? By that foregong timeline, His millennial reign would have ended sometime in the 10th or early 11th centuries if you state that it all occurred in 70 A.D. This is why the belief in a double prophecy theory has validity since there are not any records of a sole King that has ruled the entire world with goodness and mercy; there have been attempts to set up world wide dictatorships, but never a world wide theocracy.

This writer believes that everyone should be watching intently to see what happens over the course of the next 18 months and if you are not saved by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, this would be an auspicious moment to do so. The Scriptures declare in

Romans 10:9-15

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Plus, anyone can link to this writer’s Christian website, New Covenant Christian Ministries and read more about how to become a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke 21:28

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

 

Palm Sunday, honoring Jesus Christ as King of Kings


Jesus on donkey

The Sunday before Easter has been called Palm Sunday because of the imagery of the Lord Jesus Christ making His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The people hailed Him as their Messiah, waving palm branches and laying them down before Him, as well as their outer garments or cloaks so that the asses’ colt that He rode upon would not have to tread upon the dirt road.

In just a few more days, the Lord Jesus entered the beginning of His passion or suffering which would culminate in His resurrection from the dead. The whole of it came to be called the Passion week which included all of the activities of the Lord Jesus during His final week in His physical body upon the earth.

This year, Palm Sunday will fall on April 13, 2014 and churches everywhere will be celebrating this day in remembrance of our Lord’s passion that He suffered for us. Looking at some of the historical aspects of this event, the palm tree itself has always been associated with the oasis in the desert. When the people of Israel camped in Elim, there just happened to be 70 palm trees and 12 springs of fresh water. Thus do we see the imagery of the number 70 for the exact number of elders that judged the people. The number 12 being the representative number for the 12 tribes of Israel. Thus we see that Jesus was being hailed as the Messiah, with the people waving palm branches, thus indicating that the Lord Jesus as Israel’s Messiah was their eternal oasis of ‘living water,’ even as He had told the Samaritan woman at the well in:

John 4:10

Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.

Psalms 92:12-13

The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord Shall flourish in the courts of our God.

The Holy Bible prophesied that a ‘triumphant and victorious” king would enter Jerusalem ‘humble and riding on an ass.’ The spectacle of Palm Sunday fulfills this prophecy,” so The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery. We find this prophecy in Scripture in

Zechariah 9:9-11

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth. As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.

Just as God saw to it that He had prophesied before it happened, the Lord Jesus Christ came riding into Jerusalem, riding on the foal of an ass. But let’s look at the remaining two verses of Scripture, and let’s see what else is prophesied. The Scripture states that “he shall speak peace unto the heathen..” This would be the Gentiles that one day would be allowed to enter into the family of God. It also states that “His dominion shall be from sea to sea…” which means just exactly what it says…that the Lord Jesus Christ rules and reigns over the entire universe, not just for a short while, but eternally. Then let us look at the final verse; verse 11, “…by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.” Truly phenomenal statements: “…by the blood of thy covenant…” for the Lord Jesus Christ was soon to make a new covenant with His very own blood. Finally, “…I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.” This usage of ‘water’ is often associated with the Holy Spirit and indeed, Jesus foretold that He would be giving forth ‘living water’ and so indeed He did bring to pass this very prophecy.

The Ten Commandments: are they still relevant? – Part 14


My chains are gone - chris tomlin 2013 FBWe were last reading in the book of Galatians, chapter 3 and it should now be established in your hearts that God’s Laws are not a curse. The curse was simply this: if you sinned….you died! This is the curse in a nutshell. However, this is the total grace from God, that He sent His Son to take that curse upon Himself; He stood in our place and was put to death for our sins, not His own. This is GRACE! Undeserved merit and favor from a Supreme God who should rightly have executed every single one of us for the transgressions we have committed against His holiness. Now does this put an end to the Laws of God? Absolutely not! Here is the deal: Accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior allows God the Father to place within you His Holy Spirit and He looks upon you and sees the righteousness and holiness of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. From this vantage point, we now have the ability to keep God’s Laws and to remain in obedience to the One True God. When our flesh does fail, we have an advocate with the Holy Father to restore us to righteousness.

So what serves the Laws of God? It was placed there because of transgressions.

Galatians 3:19

Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

If I do not know that something offends a Holy God, how can I avoid doing it? I cannot. Therefore, God established His Holy Laws so that His people would know what to do and what not to do. It set up parameters for the people of God to be able to judge between:

HOLY and UNHOLY

RIGHTEOUS and UNRIGHTEOUS

CLEAN and UNCLEAN

GOOD and EVIL

BEST and GOOD

The book of Galatians goes on to explain that the promise of a mediator, the one and only Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ was coming. Furthermore, the law would not end the promise, but the promise would bring to fulfillment all the laws of God. Even in the Garden of Eden, there was at least one Law, which was, “Thou shalt obey me.”

Galatians 3:21-26

Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

The law is not against the promises of God because the promise was given to Abraham before the Law was put into place. Furthermore, as the Scripture so plainly states that if righteousness could have come by the Law, then God would have made it available. However, God wanted righteousness to be made available not through our works, but through faith in His Son’s accomplishments for us at the Cross of Calvary. That it would no longer be centered upon us, but on His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. In this way, we would never be able to lose our righteousness ever again. As we can see from the Scriptures, righteousness was centered upon the works of Adam and Eve. They subsequently lost that righteousness because of their works also. This is why God wanted to establish our righteousness not in our works but in His Son who would never lose His righteousness ever. In this way, we would never be condemned to death ever again.

But before faith came we were kept under the law and the law was our schoolmaster or our tutor. It defined for us that which was Holy and Unholy, Clean and Unclean, etc. It taught us how to choose between these differences. NOW… We are no longer under that tutor, but as children of God, we have received the Holy Spirit…He has taken over that role and the law is no longer external, but internal in our born again spirits, filled with Holy Spirit that guides us and reproves us when we are starting to move towards sinful activity.

John 16:13-16

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Now shall the Holy Spirit indeed negate the laws of God and tell you to do things that break those laws? Absolutely not! You will find that when the Holy Spirit commands you to do certain things that it establishes the Word of God in you.

We will continue in Part 15…so stay tuned.

Movie critique; ‘Son of God’


Son of God movie posterThis writer viewed the ‘Son of God’ movie last night with much anticipation of how Hollywood was going to handle this latest epic about the Lord Jesus Christ, his life and his mission.  Amid much critique by other bloggers and other writers, it still ranks a four-star rating from this writer.

There has been some accusations by some branches of Christianity that it contained a lot of New Age overtones, however, this writer did not see any overt or gratuitous New Age pandering.  The only thing that this writer can surmise is that some Christians (non-Pentecostals) might view the scenes where ‘Jesus’ is prophetically seeing near future events; namely, Judas’ betrayal and his own subsequent crucifixion.  But for the Pentecostal side of the church, amazingly, this scene was well done.  Because in this writer’s opinion, that is exactly how one sees prophetic visions given by the Holy Spirit.

Now…there are some issues that this writer did have with this movie: for one thing the director placed certain events out of order.  The Gospel writers place Jesus’ proclamation in the synagogue that the prophecy was being fulfilled in their ear at that moment at the beginning of his ministry.  The director took liberties with this text and placed it near the end of his ministry.  However, if one can say it quite this way; the crucifixion was tastefully rendered and the earthquake scene at the moment of Jesus’ death was great cinematography in this writer’s opinion.  Plus, the resurrection footage was also well done and Jesus’ entrance into the locked rooms of his disciples showed a tenderness in that Jesus shows the nail holes in his hands to Thomas.  But again, in the Gospels, Thomas was not present the first time that Jesus revealed himself post-resurrection to his disciples.  Jesus presented himself a second time in which Thomas was finally present.  Another issue that this writer was disappointed in is that the director presented a montage of certain biblical events regarding Jesus i.e., his baptism as an afterthought, if you will.  Then as Jesus is leaving the temple, he tells a child that “no stone will be left upon another, not one,” when in the Gospels, he tells his disciples as they are sitting on a hill looking down at the temple mount.  However, again here is a praise for the movie; the director included a short reference to the book of Revelation with the Apostle John in exile on the Isle of Patmos, with Jesus coming to him and proclaiming that He is the Alpha and Omega.  This has not been included in any other Jesus film that this writer knows about.  Plus, this writer gives much kudos and applause to the writers who included Mary Magdelene along with Jesus’ male disciples (although there were quite a few women disciples following Jesus), but at least it shows the truth even as the Gospel narratives record the fact that Jesus had women disciples as well as men. While there can be given some literary license in how things are portrayed by Hollywood, when it comes to the life of the Lord Jesus Christ, remaining true to the Biblical narrative is the best course of action.

Over all, despite the fact that critics are citing that Diogo Morgado presents a ‘hunky, and hot Jesus’ suitable only for Hollywood should be overlooked and more weight given to the Gospel narratives with the end result being that those people who have never known that much about the Lord Jesus Christ may want to look deeper into the matter.  This movie can be used as a great Evangelistic tool by Christians as long as the correct Gospel narratives are supplied to those that are seeking the one and only, Son of God, Jesus of Nazareth.

The Ten Commandments: Are they still relevant? – Part 13


thCAUI6O1XSince we have been studying in the book of Galatians, we have learned that the works of the Law should not be equated with the Ten Commandments; but rather the Mosaic Law, which was the outworking or the edicts that came down from the judgment seat of Moses, as he heard legal cases and then rendered his verdicts.  So let us start in Galatians chapter 3:

Galatians 3:1-3

O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?  Are ye so foolish?  Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

The people of Galatia had come into Christianity believing that the Lord Jesus Christ had purchased their righteousness with His death and resurrection, but because of those Jews who were seeking to turn the new Christians into Jewish proselytes first, the Apostle Paul vehemently asks them, “who has bewitched you…?”  Paul then wanted to know why these Galatians had obviously believed that they had received the Holy Spirit, but were now trying to make themselves righteous through the keeping of the Mosaic laws.

Galatians 3:6-9

Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.  And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.  So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

Paul was telling them that they were already in the family of God…through faithful Abraham who had received his righteousness because he chose to believe what God had told him regarding the promise of a son being born to him and Sarah even when they were too old to have any children.  Yet he believed and so received righteousness.

The Galatians had believed what the Apostle Paul had taught them and so had believed that the Lord Jesus Christ had purchased their salvation through His holy blood, which He shed at the cross at Calvary, and they too like all other new converts to Christianity are given the righteousness of Jesus Christ.  But they had been led astray to believe that they had to establish their own righteousness through the keeping of the Mosaic laws.

Galatians 3:10-14

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.   And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

This author has heard many interpretations of this next passage: blatant misinterpretations; deliberate eisegetical attempts and then there are those who have been taught that because of this passage, we are no longer under ANY laws (cough, cough).  Okay…readers are you ready?

1)       Being under God’s law is a curse!

2)      The laws of God ARE a curse!

3)      Jesus Christ redeemed us from that cursed law.

4)      Jesus tried to keep them and He became cursed.

But are these last four views really true?  No.  The problem lies in the fact that a lot of people skim read and they do not reflect on that which they have just read, thereby making the text totally open to their own personal interpretation.  Or, they try to pigeon-hole what they just read with other teachings that they have heard and then arrive at a totally new mixture.

Here is a brief correction to the four views listed above:

1)      Being under God’s laws is a blessing

2)      The laws of God are HOLY

3)      Jesus Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, not the cursed law.

4)      Jesus didn’t TRY to keep God’s laws; He KEPT all of them, yet still chose to bear our curse, thus becoming a cursed one for us by bearing our punishment and being put to death in our place.

In a nutshell, the curse of the Law was that if you broke these laws, you were worthy to be put to death; it was that serious.  But God’s laws are Holy.  So what is the problem?  If you choose to reject God’s Holy One, the Lord Jesus Christ, you end up trying to establish your OWN righteousness rather than receiving the free gift which is ‘the righteousness of Christ.’  From this starting point, we are now able to keep God’s laws, His Ten Commandments, when and as we submit to the leading of His Holy Spirit.

Stay Tuned for Part 14!

How to keep your husband or wife as the love of your life


pinterest.com

There are endless articles in books, magazines and internet stories of how to find love, how to ditch your date and to create your own therapy and express your hate. Please forgive the rhyme of the first line, but it is February and poets abound with lyrical lines and sonnets of love (author is laughing even as she writes these lines.) Okay. So the topic of this article is “how to keep your husband or wife as the love of your life” (more rhyming.) Biblically speaking…

Let’s look at 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity can be translated as LOVE, so yes…

LOVE suffers or puts up with a lot of things for a long time and sometimes this is what we have to do, because none of us are perfect.

LOVE is kind. Sometimes you might want to say what your really think, but if you truly love your spouse, sometimes it’s wiser to just not say anything.

LOVE doesn’t envy. Especially, when your spouse gets that promotion and you wonder when yours is going to come to pass.

LOVE doesn’t know what a BIG EGO is all about. So when you get that promotion, remember that your spouse is probably waiting for one too. So treat them to something they really want and draw them into the limelight with you.

LOVE doesn’t act like a jerk. No explanations are really needed here, we’ve all seen them.

LOVE doesn’t seek applause.

LOVE is not easily provoked, so husbands and wives should not allow themselves to get angry and blow up with every little thing that happens on a daily basis.

LOVE does not think evil things about their spouse. Hmmm…how can I get even with him/her.

LOVE does not rejoice in iniquity or sin, whether you or your spouse commits the infraction, repent as soon as possible if you have transgressed against the Lord your God.

LOVE rejoices in TRUTH. So what is truth? Truth is not a what but a WHO. Truth is the Lord Jesus Christ and truth is His WORD. So to be able to rejoice in TRUTH is to read God’s Word, and apply it to your life and to your marriage.

LOVE bears all things. When your spouse is not doing the above prescriptions, but this also does not mean that you have to be a door mat either.

LOVE believes all things. This does not mean that when your husband/wife comes in late at night with that ‘deer-in-the-headlight-look’ that you believe every story they tell. You reprove in love and get your spouse back on track.

LOVE hopes all things. You hope for the best in your marriage and you are willing to work at it for a life time, never giving up even if your spouse wants to give up on your love. Daily prayer together forges a union that is hard to break.

LOVE endures all things. So when things are not going the way that you think they should, you endure…even as the Lord Jesus Christ did as He forged out our salvation to form a relationship with us for an eternity.

This does not preclude that both husband and wife should rejoice in doing those small things for the love of their life:

1. Taking your spouse on a date night

2. Putting chocolate kisses on their pillow

3. Putting ‘I LOVE YOU’ notes in their lunchbox or briefcase

4. Calling them at lunch time just to hear their voice

5. Candle-light dinners for two

The list could go on and on, so come up with your own special delights to treat your spouse with love from your heart. This next is especially for the husbands…when your wife asks you the DREADED question….”Does this dress look good on me?”

Even if the answer is “NO!” Take your wife in your arms and look directly into her eyes and tell her,

“YOU look beautiful my love!”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

History of Valentine’s Day


deliciousindustries.blogspot.com

February is the month for Valentine’s Day and since it is believed according to history that,

Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial–which probably occurred around A.D. 270–others claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

Americans probably began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s, Esther A. Howland began selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. Howland, known as the “Mother of the Valentine,” made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as “scrap.” (History.com).

It can be assumed that this is also where we get the new term “scrap-booking” in which people put lace around their pictures, etc.  As the old saying goes, “There’s nothing new under the sun” which is quoted from the book of Ecclesiastes 1:9.

This is also the time when bakeries will be selling tons of pink and red cakes and cupcakes and those who love to bake at home will be trying their hand at making heart shaped cakes and cookies.  School children will be buying Valentine’s day cards to exchange at their school parties.  Husbands and wives will be sending their heart felt thoughts to each other and florists are stocking up on American Beauty Red Roses.  Let’s not forget those delicious C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E-S either!

So what are you going to send?

Better yet…to whom?
