End Time Events - The Miscellaneous SignsWritten by Michael Bradley
1. Per miscellaneous signs listed in my previous article, Jesus literally tells apostles face to face what signs are that will let us know when He is about ready to come back to our earth for His second coming. The verse is from gospel of Matthew and it reads as follows:
"Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be sign of Your coming and of end of age? And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My Name, saying ‘I am Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but end is not yet. 2. Another verse on false christs and false prophets that will come is also found in Matthew. It reads:
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom And there will famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places. All these are beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to end shall be saved.
And this gospel of kingdom will be preached in all world as a witness to all nations, and then end will come." (Matthew 24:3-14)
"For false christs and false prophets will ariseand show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, elect." (Matthew 24:24) 3. Paul also talks about state of man in latter days and how bad man is going to get. Here is verse:
"But know this, that in LAST DAYS perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power." (2 Timothy 3:1) 4. Paul also states in latter days that some Christians will be departing from faith due to influence of demons. The verse is found in 1 Timothy.
"Now Spirit expressly says that in LATTER TIMES some will depart from faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons." (1 Timothy 4:1)
Moslem America part 2Written by Rev.A.R.Smith
In part 1, we left off with 5 questions from Christ, they were; 1.“And what agreement hath temple of God with idols?” 2.” for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?” 3. “what communion hath light with darkness?” 4.”what concord hath Christ with Belial?” 5.” what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” These questions are found in 2 Cor 6, 2 Cor. 2:14 thru. Lets take each and discuss them. 1.“And what agreement hath temple of God with idols?” Agreement means; 1. Concord; harmony; conformity. 2. Union of opinions or sentiments; as, a good agreement subsists among members of council. 3. Resemblance; conformity; similitude. 4. Union of minds in regard to a transfer of interest; bargain; compact; contract; stipulation.
1. Ask yourself this question, does word of God agree with words of Muslim creed? No. It cant, if Holy Bible would be in agreement with Muslim Quran, then Bible would be false and we all would be at mercy of Satan. There is no, Concord; harmony; conformity, Resemblance; nor Union between Bible and this sect. False religions are a danger to mankind here is a partial listing of world religions;
1.Christianity 2 billion 2.Islam 1.3 billion 3.Hinduism 900 million 4.Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist850 million 5.Buddhism: 360 million 6.Chinese traditional religion 225 million 7.primal-indigenous 150 million 8.African Traditional & Diasporic 95 million 9.Sikhism 23 million 10.Juche 19 million 11.Spiritism 14 million 12.Judaism 14 million 13.Baha'i 6 million 14.Jainism 4 million 15.Shinto: 4 million 16.Cao Dai 3 million 17.Tenrikyo 2.4 million 18.Neo-Paganism 1 million 19.Unitarian-Universalism 800 thousand 20.Rastafarianism 700 thousand 21.Scientology 600 thousand 22.Zoroastrianism 150 thousand
2. ” for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?” Fellowship; 1. Companionship; society; consort; mutual association of persons on equal and friendly terms; familiar intercourse. 2. Association; confederacy; combination. 3. Partnership; joint interest; 4. Company; a state of being together. 5. Communion; intimate familiarity. 1 John 1.
3. “what communion hath light with darkness?” Communion; 1. Fellowship; intercourse between two persons or more; interchange of transactions, or offices; a state of giving and receiving; agreement; concord. 2. Mutual intercourse or union in religious worship, or in doctrine and discipline. 4.”what concord hath Christ with Belial?” 1. Agreement between persons; union in opinions, sentiments, views or interests; peace; harmony.
5.” what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” If you’ve noticed in descriptions of each word from these scriptures, God doesn’t allow for any doubt about His Word. He doesn’t allow anyone to try to misinterpret scriptures. He wants His people to stay away from “UNCLEAN THING”. We as Christians cannot allow ourselves to become entangled in world of false religions or become involved in a union of convenience. But this world will become involved, not by agreeing with world of Quran but to try to save physical life of their own people. In doing so they are condemning themselves and their families. Need proof? Lets read a little; Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by edge of sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of Gentiles, until times of Gentiles be fulfilled.
