Halloween Is Not Christian

Multiple millions of people will soon be observing “Halloween.” And, multiple millions consider that it is a worldly holiday appropriate for Christians.

The very origins of Halloween are not biblical.

Should true Christianity and Halloween belong together!?

Halloween is an Old English word meaning “Hallowed Evening.” It is the night before the Roman Catholic holiday that they claim to have adopted from the Eastern Orthodox – now called “All Saints Day.” In Mexico, it’s celebrated as “The Day of the Dead.” Truly part of the Catholic rationale for All Saints Day is that they have so many saints they wish to honor, that they decided to lump them together on a specific day. Certainly, while most Catholics support and celebrate Halloween, others do not.

the Origins of Halloween

Research any reputable encyclopedia and discover that it does not shy away from the fact that Halloween is of the origin of Samhain (pronounced SAH-WUN – apparently meaning “summers end”).
“Halloween had its origins in the festival of Samhain among the Celts of ancient Britain and Ireland. On the day corresponding to November 1 on contemporary calendars, the new year was believed to begin. That date was considered the beginning of the winter period, the date on which the herds were returned from pasture and land tenures were renewed. During the Samhain festival, the souls of those who had died were believed to journey to the otherworld. People set bonfires on hilltops to relight their hearth fires for the winter and to frighten away evil spirits, and they sometimes wore masks and other disguises to avoid being recognized by the ghosts thought to be present. It was in those ways that beings such as witches, hobgoblins, fairies, and demons came to be associated with the day. The period was also thought to be favorable for divination on matters such as marriage, health, and death. When the Romans conquered the Celts in the 1st century A.D., they added their own festivals of Feralia, commemorating the passing of the dead, and of Pomona, the goddess of the harvest.”

It appears as if the original timing of Halloween was related to certain movements of the sun. Notice -
SPOOKY ASTRONOMY: Halloween is a date of astronomical interest. It has to do with seasons: Halloween is a cross-quarter date, approximately midway between an equinox and a solstice. There are four cross-quarter dates throughout the year, and each is a minor holiday: Groundhog Day (Feb. 2nd), May Day (May 1st), Lammas Day (Aug. 1st), and Halloween (Oct. 31st).

“Long ago, the Celts of the British Isles used cross-quarter days to mark the beginnings of seasons. Winter began with Halloween, or as they called it, Samhain," says John Mosley of the Griffith Observatory. "Halloween marked the transition between summer and winter, light and dark -- and life and death. On that one night, according to folklore, those who had died during the previous year returned for a final visit to their former homes. People set out food and lit fires to aid them on their journey -- but remained on guard for mischief the spirits might do.”

Also, in Asia, versions of Halloween - like what the Celts celebrated and the pre-Hispanic Mexicans - are celebrated.
“The Chinese celebrate the ‘Hungry Ghost Festival’ in mid-July when it is customary to float river lanterns to remember those who have died. ... Chinese Christian churches hold religious celebrations. ... Mainland China has been less influenced by Anglo traditions than Hong Kong and Halloween is generally considered “foreign.” ...

Halloween arrived in Japan mainly as a result of American pop culture. As recently as 2009, it was not appreciated and only celebrated by expats. ...

The Philippines ...

The period from 31 October through 2 November is a time for remembering dead family members and friends. Many Filipinos travel back to their hometowns for family gatherings of festive remembrance. ...

Singapore ...

Around mid-July, Singapore Chinese celebrate ‘Zhong Yuan Jie / Yu Lan Jie’ (Hungry Ghosts Festival), a time when it is believed that the spirits of the dead come back to visit their families.”

So, the modern Western version of Halloween has been spreading like wildfire around the globe. Yet, it is certainly not Christian.

The ‘god of this world’ (2 Corinthians 4:4), Satan the devil, (who does indeed exist, despite many who falsely claim otherwise - such as a Melanie Cottam, a Dianic leader - See: History of Halloween traditions; lost symbolism, meaning) has been successfully spreading this holiday and getting it endorsed by many cultures and even religions around the world.


Having grown up in rural Oregon, my family had many bonfires, and I simply believed that they were pretty cool. However, later I learned that their origin is related to Halloween.
“True Origin of 'Bonfire': Bonefire

The word is actually derived from Middle English bonefire, meaning literally "a fire of bones." (Way cooler etymology, right?) The earliest appearance of the word is glossed ignis ossium—Latin for "fire of bones." And a citation from the 15th century confirms that this is not just a learned folk-etymology.

Certainly, when I was in my youth, no one ever mentioned that bonfires were originally BONE FIRES.


The origin of the jack-o-lanterns is rather amusing - also known as a will-o-the-wisp, foxfire, or fairy fire, also a friar's lantern, or a corpse lantern - was believed to be a wandering soul that could not find any refuge because of a particularly evil deed that was committed in its lifetime. Others believed it was a malignant imp. The Finns believed that it was the soul of a child who was buried in the forest. Today's carving of a face on a pumpkin is symbolic of a mocking spirit - a spirit who chased terrified victims through mud and brambles until confused and then left them stranded with the sound of laughter ringing through their ears. The corpse candle (a modern carved pumpkin) is said to be a small flame moving through the air in the dark and is believed by superstition to be an omen of the observer's imminent death - or the death of a loved one. Only the foolish would follow them.

Now, I could mention many more traditions with this pagan holiday - or rather "holy day" of ancient Samhain - but NONE come from the Holy Bible.

Turn with me if you will to Leviticus 23 - for the Lord God (the very One we now know of as Jesus Christ) had Moses, under the inspiration of God's Spirit list His feasts –

“And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2) 'Speak to the children of Israel [or also the New Covenant Church of God], and say to them: 'The feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, THESE ARE MY FEASTS.’” - Leviticus 23:1-2.

Halloween - also known as ‘All Hallows Eve’ or even All Saints’ Day, IS NOT LISTED! It is not a commanded feast of the LORD - it is a tradition of paganized man. And there is no hint whatsoever of it in the Bible.

God’s living eternal word WARNS us against worshiping the LORD God the way the pagans did! – Leviticus 18:3; Deuteronomy 12:31; Jeremiah 10:2-3.

The living word of God repeatedly WARNS against the practice of sorcery and witchcraft – Exodus 22:18; Deuteronomy 18:10; Galatians 5:20. Along with what many call “ghosts,” “ghouls,” and “goblins” – Deuteronomy 18:11; 1st Chronicles 10:13. □


Is Halloween Biblical?The short answer is - a resounding no.
Should Christians Observe Halloween?October 31st will soon be here again, along with a strange festival – Halloween. With demons, goblins, witches, ghosts, human skeletons – which are glorified. But, what do all these have to do with All Hallows Eve!? And why the demonic-looking masks and gaudy decorations!?
New Wine In Old SkinAre you seriously thinking about making some changes in your life – the way you live!?
Satan's Worldthis world is changing! And sometimes it does feel as if it’s with lightning speed for a man in the autumn of his years. I have seen such drastic changes – rapid changing – in technology, science, medicine, and in cultures, neighborhoods, and in our cities and towns all throughout the world.
St. Valentine's Day - where did it come from!?Now friends, surely school teachers, and other professional educators would know the origin of St. Valentine's Day!? Yet, most do not.
Commentary: Happy New Year?Here are various sources on this so-called New Year.
When Does God's New Year Begin?Let me begin today by asking these questions – “How did the celebration of New Year’s ever begin!?” “Why is the beginning of a new year placed in the dead of winter!?” “Where did this custom originate!? Did it come from Almighty God!?”
Commentary: Pagainism and this worldIt is EASY to spot a person who is under the influence of Satan the Devil. The person is embracing worldliness, of which the LORD our God says to be no part of.
Is Your Belief Biblical? and can you prove it? - ... we hold that the freedom of religion is maybe the one we hold most dearly. ...
Are You But A Traditionalist?Why in this world is there such grave religious confusion!? Also, why in these worldly churches do they look to a different Jesus than the living Jesus Christ of God’s living word!?
ChristMas... Its OriginWell, here we are dear friends just on the threshold of another Christmas.
Lent, Ash Wednesday, and Easter - Did the Original Christians Observe These?Now, indeed to the Catholics and others this all seems just fine. The majority consider this to be inspirational. Yet, THIS IS NOT INSPIRED BY GOD!
Easter or Passover?It's so very sad that so many people - especially among the English-speaking nations of the world - do not understand that the holiday they call Easter is truly supposed to be Passover.
Should Biblical Christians Observe St. Patrick's Day?Would this tradition of man be one that Jesus Christ would endorse!?

Letter to our Friends - October 26, 2023

We are based upon the Word of God, the Truth of God, and the Plan of God

P.O. BOX 6458

Leonard V. Johnson

Dearest Brethren and Friends around the world:

Greetings from Spring Hill, Florida.

We are seeing a lot of decorations in our communities related to the observance of Hallowe´en. The suggested sermon for this Sabbath is “Should Christians Keep Halloween?” It has to do with the fact that the majority of professing Christians justify the observance of this holiday that is actually dedicated to the worship of Satan the devil.

We’ve been working on additional PDF online articles. Including, “Dinosaurs And You!”, “Do Animals Have A Spirit?”, and “A ‘SECRET RAPTURE’?” as we continue to do the work of God that the LORD God has commissioned us to do – i.e. Ezekiel 34:10-15; Matthew 28:19-20; John 21:17.

This great Work undertaken by Jesus Christ is yet to be finished. And, perhaps more than ever should be shouted to Jesus Christ's spiritual “lost sheep” of the house of Israel, in which Jesus admonished the apostle Peter (and by extension, us as well) when He said, “’ FEED MY SHEEP!’” We are small in number, however, our desire to feed the sheep of Jesus Christ is huge and ambitious. We strive to teach the Word of God, the Truth of God, and the ultimate Plan of God!

Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries Website

As most are aware, we have a website – And, according to its own analytics and internal statistics, within the last four years, we have had 190,544 visitors! That’s roughly 50,000 visitors a year! Our top article is “Wisdom From A Bulletin Board (Sermon)” with 1.1k views! The “Welcome” page alone has had 11.7k views! Now, our browsers are excluded from being tracked and logged by the website or Statcounter.

Surely you will notice that our internal website stats are quite a bit different than Statcounter stats. Why? Because – according to Statcounter – “The user stats for a single website can be skewed due to the type of person who visits that site. For example, all visitors may be in a certain age group or may have a particular interest area. This can influence the use or otherwise of a mobile device and also influence the browser/operating system/search engine/social media site used.”

The Sabbath Lunch Hour

Brother Samuel LaMar has created for us, brethren and friends, a website – a place to learn Scriptural truth. A place where if you have a question, we are here 24/7 to help answer. “We Are Here!” It’s still a work in progress, and should be up and fully operational in a few months. Please pray that this website will be a great blessing from Almighty God and our Lord Jesus for the work of God.

Suggested Sabbath Day Service

Here is our suggested Sabbath day service for our scattered brethren and friends around the world:

• TWO songs of praise. (our songbook, The Bible Hymnal, is suggested, there are some Instrumental Accompaniment to the Bible Hymnal available on our website).
• Opening prayer.
• Announcements – from the deacon or pastor.
• Sermon – from the pastor or guest speaker. The one suggested for this week is – “Should Christians Keep Halloween?”
• Closing song.
• Closing prayer.

In case you do not receive a ‘Letter to our Friends’ via email, remember that we post them on our website – under “Church Letters.” We also have hundreds of additional sermons on our YouTube channels. There are also audio messages and articles available on our Soundcloud Radio channel - As well as audio messages and articles in the languages of Swahili, Dutch, and Khmer.

Some World News In Relation To Biblical Prophecy

According to sources, the United States government is going to attempt to force government employees to use the “preferred” pronouns when referring to LGBTQ+ type people instead of what their God-given biological sex actually is. (See:“US Government Mandates Pronoun Use”).

Well, in this 21st century present evil age, this is not unexpected and is indeed a type of religious persecution.

As far as biological sex, our Lord and Savior, and CREATOR (See: John 1:1, 3), teaches us biological sex in relation to human beings –

“And He answered and said to them, ‘Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them MALE AND FEMALE,’ 5) and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and THE TWO shall become one flesh’? 6) So then, they are no longer two, but one flesh. …’ – Matthew 19:4-6.

Now, you would think that supposedly educated governmental leaders would not try and create new English words, i.e. Pangender, Demisexual, Multisexual, TERF, Masculine of Center, Sologamy, or Throuple. It goes to show just how sexually depraved this world has become! As our Lord Jesus has told us –

’ But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be’ – Matthew 24:37; Luke 17:26. And certainly, as it was in the days of the prophet Enoch - whose life actually overlapped Adam’s – it will be again. For at that time “the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” – Genesis 6:5.

Truly, truly our Lord Jesus is pointing out that, although the people of the prophet Noah’s day were totally and completely depraved, they were not the least bit concerned or worried about it. They were carrying on the events of their lives without a single care or thought of the judgment of the LORD God. There are some who believe that part of the need to destroy every single human being except righteous Noah and his family was interbreeding.

Interestingly enough, a 2012 study in the journal Trends in Genetics states that “anywhere between 2,000 and 5,000 genes determine human intelligence, and these genes are particularly susceptible to harmful changes, or mutations.” 1 As in genetic mutations. It’s certainly something to ponder.

The ”sons of God” in Genesis 6:2 are the descendants of Adam from his son Seth. Also, the “daughters of men” were the descendants of Cain. The true meaning of the words “Son of God” has become lost to the majority. Notice these plain Scriptures of our great God: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. The Spirit [itself] bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs – heirs of God [God the Father] and joint heirs with Christ [Jesus the Christ] …” – Romans 8:14-17. “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be [our future profession], but we know that when He is revealed [when Jesus Christ returns], we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is [a spiritual Being].” – 1 John 3:1, 2.

The Jamieson Fausset and Brown write, “Mixed marriages between parties of opposite principles and practice were necessarily sources of extensive corruption. The women irreligious themselves, would as wives and mothers exert an influence FATAL to the existence of religion [the very religion of the LORD God] in their household, and consequently the people of that later age sank to the lowest depravity” 2

Observe what is occurring in this later part of this present evil age. According to a 2019 Pew Research Center study, In the U.S., the Decline of Christianity Continues at a Rapid Pace!

Brethren and friends – there’s a new religion in the land. Wokeness and the New Religious Establishment. Wokeness is quickly becoming the established faith in the legal and regulatory framework of the American political system, as well as in elite corporate culture and academia. 3 G. Calthrop, M.A. wrote in regards to Genesis 6:1-2, “There is indicated in this language a simple following of their own will; there is no reference to God or to duty in the matter. The result was an intermingling of the two races and a very rapid increase of the corruption of mankind.” 4

God’s living word WARNS us of the rise of evil and corruption in the last days –

“ … in the last days perilous times will come: 2) For men will be lovers of themselves …” Now, what could be more shameful and despicable of self-love than this world and each individual in their own little self-bubble!? “ … lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3) unloving, …” continues the apostle Paul’s blistering indictment against a gluttonous world – a world in which we are living in today. “ … unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, …” How terribly accurate was this prophecy! The apostle Paul was inspired by and through God’s Spirit to picture in living color a blood-scattered caricature of this gruesome world. Our rotting morals! “ … traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness [such as these false ministers hiding behind their degrees] but denying its power. And from such people TURN AWAY!” – 2 Timothy 3:1-5. The LORD of hosts says, “’ Hear the word of the LORD!’”

Also, this LGBTQ+ supporting world does not want people to hear the following living words of the Eternal One –

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, NOR EFFEMINATE, nor ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND, … shall inherit the kingdom of God.” – 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, KJV.

Verse 11 – “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

Sadly, God’s living word also warns that even more censorship is coming! – cf. Amos 8:11-12.

The work of God certainly needs to be done while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work – cf. John 9:4.

That is also why we and our associated ministries are also CRYING ALOUD! –

“’ Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins.’” – Isaiah 58:1.

Yet, until this famine of the Word of God comes, we and our associated ministries will go through the doors that our Lord Jesus opens in proclaiming the Word of God, the Truth of God, and the Plan of God!

We and our associated ministries teach and stand for the living truth of the Lord our God – our Master, Elder Brother, and Savior, Jesus Christ. And we will continue to run the race that is set out before us!

Also: The WAR between terrorist Hamas (even though Islamist Erdogan claims that Hamas is not a terrorist organization; a leader who dreams of restoring a Sunni Islamic Caliphate and a new Ottoman-style empire) and the tiny nation of Israel continues dominating the news. The death toll of Israelites continues to rise. According to one report by The Wall Street Journal, the death toll in Israel is at 1,300 people that have been killed and more than 3,000 people wounded!

Q: During World War II, did Americans keep count of how many of our enemies were killed in the war!? Palestinians are partly responsible for the hatred shown to Israel. However –

Should we as true Christians love our enemies during war!? Israel’s enemies are our enemies. Are we to love those who ruthlessly fire missiles into Israel and kill innocent men, women, and children!? Are we to love those who rape and murder Israeli women and children!? Are we to love those (some being Palestinians) who kidnap and tie our brethren’s hands behind their backs before executing them!?

Our Lord Jesus Christ says – yes. We are to love them, even the worst of them. There were some Jewish groups then in our Lord Jesus’ day that taught, as there are groups today that teach, it is absolutely right to hate your enemies. Our Lord Jesus says otherwise –

’ You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ …” – compare Exodus 23:4-5; and Leviticus 19:18. “ … ‘But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.’ – Matthew 5:43-44.

(See: CNBC“Released hostages arrive in Tel Aviv; Gaza health ministry says death toll tops 5,000”). Surely even more have been killed since this report – from a war that terrorist Iran initiated by proxy!

Can all of this have end-time prophetic ramifications!? Yes!

To Note: A good read – “A Guide to Understanding Israel's Enemies” by Dr. Joseph Farah.

Despite how the situation may look now, Israel will lose territory to the Palestinians – consistent with the dual prophecy of Isaiah 22:6-9. Notice this BBC report – “Iran warns Israel to stop the war in Gaza or region will 'go out of control'”.

We believe and we have been proclaiming that this war is setting up for IRAN (the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation) to get more heavily involved and will ultimately lead to the dual fulfillment of prophecies such as Isaiah 22:6-9, which shows us that a confederation of Islamic nations – such as the Iranians and Syrians – forming together to cause “great damage” to the city of David – Jerusalem.

Brethren and friends, let us pray that this war between Hamas and Israel ends soon. And let us pray not just for our neighbors, let us also pray for our enemies.

Concluding Comments

Although we are seeing prophesied wars and rumors of wars (see Matthew 24:6-8), ’ See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.’ But soon it will come to an end. And, the LORD God inspired the prophet Micah to record –

“In the last days the mountain of the LORD'S temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it.

Many nations will come and say, 'Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the GOD of Jacob. He will teach us His Ways, so that we may walk in His paths.'

The Law will go out from Zion, the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore”—Micah 4:1-3.

O' praise the great and merciful GOD, the GOD of gods—physical people are going to flow into His AWESOME Kingdom! You see, all this terrible bad news will lead right into THIS! “In the last days.” See!? “In that day,” “In those days,” all of this terrible disgusting vile—like Kayla Mueller defending her faith, belief, and testimony of our living Christ! Along with her humanitarianism! —and being MURDERED for it!—all of this vile is going to lead right into this most inspiring Good News you could ever hear! PRAISE ALMIGHTY GOD AND OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!

Now... that's what it's all about!

And who will these physical nations learn from?

GOD Himself! He will decide for strong nations, “and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” So, this is a symbol of peace. A time of peace and plenty.

Now... remember... these are physical nations. Verse 4: “But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree: and none shall make them afraid:” nobody is going to make anyone afraid any more. “for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it.”

GOD cannot lie. It HAS to come to pass! It MUST happen! It MUST happen! There's no other way that things can develop and conclude. There's no other way.

Friends, I went to Father God and Jesus Christ in prayer and spent much time in study over the following Scripture. And in prayer, Their Spirit reminded me of what our living Christ had said to the Jews in John 10:29-36!

Micah 4:5: “For all other nations shall walk everyone in his own way, but we will walk in the Name of the Lord our GOD for ever and ever”—Greek Septuagint.

Let's continue growing in the grace and knowledge of our GOD (2 Peter 3:18), and overcoming, so we can have the right to sit with our King of kings and Lord of lords on His throne (Revelation 3:21).

In deep gratitude and love, in Jesus' name,

Think About This... Fluffy Fake Religion

This is exactly what the self-professing Christians are all about. They love their fluffy fake religion and claim it to be Christian, while in reality, it’s just a lie. They DENY the REAL JESUS of the Holy Bible by making Him into an effeminate hippie! They take away the LAW of the LORD God with this bull crap of riding on emotions. This idea of “If it feels good, it’s got to be Godly” garbage!

It’s funny to me, how our peoples THINK this – because TRUE CHRISTIANS, who actually keep the LORD God’s Law, are trying to work out our own salvation with reverent fear and trembling. How stupid!

They won’t listen. Instead, they decide to judge true Christians without truly seeing or hearing. They won’t listen with logical intellectual reasoning – partly due to their short attention span to anything that is logical or intelligent.

In truth – it is by our works that we are offered our reward in the glorious soon-coming kingdom of God.

The concept of “once saved, always saved” is a foolish bunch of unbiblical garbage. God’s living word tells us that a person who endures until the end – meaning that the person overcomes until their last conscious breath – will be saved. And, what are they overcoming!? Staying in the faith! And, what does that mean!? That means they are a DOER of the Way of the LORD God. A TRUE BELIEVER IN CHRIST! One who obeys Christ Jesus!

To obey is to do something.

And, what is a FOLLOWER OF CHRIST!?

One who follows our Lord Jesus’ example!

And, what is that!?

Living by His Way – which means following and obeying the LAW OF GOD!

It’s very frustrating at times that our peoples cannot see that the LORD God’s holy and relevant Law equals the Way of God. And the Way of God equals the love of God for us. And by obeying God’s Way is obeying His Law.

’ If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.’ – John 15:10.

’ If you love Me, keep My commandments.’ – John 14:15.

Also, our peoples greatly misinterpret what grace means.

Grace is a gift. A free gift from the LORD God! It is offered to whom Father God chooses. It is not just given to anybody for anything. It’s those to whom Father God calls out of this world – its religions and evils – and dedicate themselves to the LORD God. The holy Family of God – which at this time consists of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. To dedicate a complete spiritual mindset to the LORD God – which is made with action. And to accept this free gift is to make a change to self.

Our peoples do not understand this. Sin is the breaking of the LORD God’s holy and immutable Law. God the Father has called us to repent.

’ No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day [upon the blowing of the SEVENTH TRUMP!].’ – John 6:44.

Repent from what!?


And, what is sin!?

Again, it’s the breaking of the LORD God’s Law – summed up with the TEN COMMANDMENTS!

“Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.” – 1 John 3:4.

To repent means to change. Turn from sin and turn to the LORD God’s Way.

Change what!?

Change our whole life and the way in which we are living our life of sin.

So, if you begin obeying the LORD God – Their commandments, statutes, ordinances, and judgments – you are turning from sin.

The apostle James explains – through the inspiration of the Spirit – the development of sin –

“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15) Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth [the second] death.” – James 1:14-15.

What made our Lord Jesus Christ perfect!? He kept the Law of God perfectly. He gave us an example to live by. To emulate.

But sadly, mankind and the modern religiosity of so-called Christianity came up with a plethora of different ideologies and philosophies on how to get away from obeying the LORD God. Thus those people are not called children of God in this present evil age. They are of a make-believe Christianity.

Our Savior, Master, Elder Brother, and great High Priest in the heavenly realms has told us – ’ Beware of false prophets [false ministers and teachers], who come to you in sheep’s clothing [they appear and sound righteous], but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16) You will know them [and their flocks] by their fruits. …’ – Matthew 7:15, 16.

You will know their very character by observing their ways. You will know what is truly within their heart. You will see what they truly stand for.

The LORD God’s Way is obeying – which equals obeying the LORD God’s Law.

Sadly, it was the religions of Judaism and this so-called Christianity (founded by the likes of Simon Magus, and later expounded upon by Emperor Constantine the Great) that added to the Law of God, and judges people by their laws. Yet, the LORD God’s Law is crystal clear.

The love of the LORD God is shown to mankind through the Law of God – again, summed up in the TEN COMMANDMENTS.

The person who obeys the Law of God is showing their love towards the LORD God – the very family of God! □

Commentary: Demons Amok!

Wednesday, Oct. 11th: Israelis take cover from the incoming rocket fire from the Gaza Strip in Ashkelon, southern Israel. Leo Correa/AP.

by Guy LaMar

God’s living immutable word tells us that there is “a time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace” – Ecclesiastes 3:8.

Now, with that said, from what is happening in Judea – the tiny nation of Israel – personally, I hope that the terrorist Hamas (along with the Satan-led evil and vile nations of Iran, Egypt, and Syria) are totally and completely destroyed with zero mercy from Israel. As Israel unleashes their powerful wrath upon those evil demons.

Truly, watching the live news from that region is extremely upsetting and sad.

These demons kidnapped an innocent young child, possibly 6 years old, and threw him among a group of Arab youths, who beat him mercilessly until he was dead! They have kidnapped elderly Israelis and physically abused them and beat them to death! They have gouged out the eyes of young Israeli men! They have raped young Israeli women! They have raped young Israeli men! They have murdered innocent babies! They have murdered the elderly.

They have no mercy.

If we had a strong and intelligent U.S. president then this would never be taking place. And, he would strengthfully support our brethren in Israel.

Personally, this boils my blood! Imagine that a leader of the United States of America released frozen Iranian funds totaling $6 billion for the release of hostages to evil terrorists, and in turn, they commit these horrific and evil acts!

For some 75 years, Israel has been at war – either officially or unofficially.

Truly, all Christians need to understand and realize, without reservations, that Arabs are the enemy of God’s chosen people! Arabs worship Satan the devil. The “god of the earth” in whom they call Allah. Islam is a religion of Satan the devil.

Personally, I am tired of all these so-called Christians, who do not have God’s Spirit, allowing pity on a religion of Satan the devil! According to some researchers, the founder of Islam, Muhammad, was a pedophile because he engaged in sexual acts with a 9-year-old wife.

Note: According to traditional sources, Aisha was six or seven years old when betrothed to Muhammad, with the marriage not being consummated until she reached the age of nine or ten years old.

Also, take note of this statement from Ohana_is_family on Reddit – in response to whether Muhammad knew better –
“The academic Quran resources have an example of a Roman who was dipped in boiling water for "statutory rape" of a girl and the Romans had a consenting age of 13, so she was likely several years older than Aisha. …

Intercourse with a 9-year-old is immoral because a. the risk of harm to the 9-year-old is great and b. because the 9-year-old is too young to fully understand the risks to her (no meaningful consent). The risk of harm was known at the time of Muhammed. …

This study by a Sunni shows that in Muhammed's time these facts were known. …

Muhammed having sex with a 9-year-old makes him unacceptable as a moral example.” 1
Except Through Jesus Christ


There is no other!

Exodus 20:3; Deuteronomy 5:7 –

“’ You shall have no other gods before Me.’”

Matthew 7:15-20 –

’ Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16) You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17) Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18) A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19) Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20) Therefore by their fruits you will know them.’

1st John 4:1 –

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit [in other words, do not believe every person], but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

God the Father is to whom we pray, THROUGH our Lord Jesus Christ! As our Lord Jesus shows us in this example of how and what to pray –

’ But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7) And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8) Therefore DO NOT be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

In this manner, therefore, pray …’ – Matthew 6:6-13.

Ephesians 5:20 –

“giving thanks always for all things to God the Father IN THE NAME of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

John 14:6 –

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’

Also, John 17:1-26.

ONLY THROUGH the God of the Holy Bible are we given the opportunity of salvation.

And, absolutely no one is “saved” until they have endured – until the end of their physical life as a CHRISTIAN – in which they die in the faith, and will be resurrected into the family of God, the kingdom of God. It is then, and only then, that they are “saved.”

Our Lord Jesus says –

’ But he who endures to the end shall be saved.’ – Matthew 24:13.

Brethren, we are in the times of the end of this present evil age. And we must be on high alert!

How long do we have!? No one knows, but the signs of the end-time are evident. This world, as a whole, will grow worse!

This vicious and unprovoked attack on the land of Judea is something that has been on the radar of God’s people for a long while. This current occupying and thief of a president – Joe Biden – gave weapons over to our enemy, and left Afghanistan in disgrace!

You ask why I say, “thief”? Because the Demoncrats stole the election of 2020! The true evidence is overwhelming! And currently, he is their puppet in the third term of Obama!

This attack on the land of Judea was an effect of the weak and feckless Biden Administration – due in large part of their support for terrorism. I am gobsmacked at how any person can support EVIL!

Yes, friends, the political modern Demoncratic party is in the same bed as these evil and vile terrorists that are attacking and mutilating, and murdering innocent Israelis! The enemies of the United States of America, and of mankind, is from within.

What should true Christians do!?

We should not allow false religions and philosophies to be accepted in our lives, we MUST stay in the Way and the will of the LORD God! Obeying the commandments of God – which are the LORD God’s Way. And yes, God does expect us to do something. If you think that just thinking warm thoughts is the only thing we need to do, then you do not know the LORD God of the Holy Bible – but, sadly, have bought into the lies of the father of lies, Satan the devil.

The LORD our God has given us an example to live by. And that example is our Lord Jesus Christ. He showed us how to abide by the spiritual laws of God – perfectly.

We, brethren, are to stay the course in faith, live the Christian life, and not be a part of this evil and wicked world that we dwell within. We are instructed by the LORD God to stay focused on the Way of God – which equals the immutable and relevant LAW OF GOD – summed up in the TEN COMMANDMENTS.

Exodus 14:13, 14 –

“And Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you TODAY. … 14) The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.’”

Let us, brethren, be of the mindset of our Lord and Savior Jesus – think of how He was towards those who hated and eventually murdered Him –

“Then Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.’ – Luke 23:34.

“When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” – Proverbs 16:7.

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.” – Psalm 138:7.

“For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. 3) They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. 5) In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer.” – Psalm 109:2-5.

“Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles.” – Proverbs 24:17.

’ You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44) But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45) that you may be [children] of your Father in heaven; for He makes the sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.’ – Matthew 5:43-45.

“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” – Romans 12:14.

Our Lord Jesus Christ desires that His people be a people of LOVE! A people that truly care about their fellow man. A people that has compassion for others. A people that has heartfelt grief for misguided people who allow false prophets, false doctrines, and demons to manipulate and confuse them.

Let us brethren pray to Almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ that They will return soon and establish the glorious kingdom of God!


The LORD God (the family of God; which at this moment in time consists of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ) makes it abundantly clear that we cannot have friendship with evil! –

’ No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You CANNOT serve God [the true and only LORD God] and mammon [wealth and assets].’ – Matthew 6:24.

“You CANNOT drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you CANNOT partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.” – 1st Corinthians 10:21.

“Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” – Amos 3:3.

Sadly, very few people understand that when the LORD God is speaking through the Holy Bible, it is speaking to the Christian people. It is not speaking to the people who reject it. Although, in many ways, it is – because God’s living word is SHOUTING A WARNING OF REPENTANCE TO ALL PEOPLE OF THE EARTH! - cf. Acts 17:30-31.

Yet, in reality, this warning must be shouted unto all the world, whether our peoples will embrace the message or not. This DIRE WARNING has been shouted unto all the world since near the beginning of creation – cf. Genesis 2:15-17; Jude 1:14-15.

The Holy Bible is not only a handbook for Christians, it is an Instruction Manual for all mankind. It is a Bible (a collection of the LORD God’s word; “living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” – Hebrews 4:12) by which all Christians are to observe, follow, and obey.

Now, there was a time within God’s living word when the LORD God warned His chosen people against these types of evil and vile people that we have to deal with TODAY!

The LORD God commanded the children of Israel to completely annihilate the heathen nations which the LORD God of our fathers gave them to possess – e.g.

“’ These are the statutes and judgments which you shall be careful to observe in the land which the LORD God of your fathers is giving you to possess, all the days that you live on the earth.

2) ‘You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. 3) And you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their wooden images with fire; you shall cut down their carved images of their gods and DESTROY THEIR NAMES FROM THAT PLACE.

4) You shall not worship the LORD your God with such things.’” – Deuteronomy 12:1-4.

“’ Now if the city will not make peace with you, but war against you, then you shall besiege it. 13) And when the LORD your God delivers it into your hands, you shall strike every male in it with the edge of the sword. 14) But the women, the little ones, the livestock, and all that is in the city, all its spoil, you shall plunder for yourself; and you shall eat the enemies’ plunder which the LORD your God gives you. 15) Thus you shall do to all the cities which are very far from you, which are not of the cities of these nations.’” – Deuteronomy 20:12-15.

And, the LORD our God continues –

“’ But of the cities of these peoples which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance, YOU SHALL LET NOTHING THAT BREATHES REMAIN ALIVE, 17) but you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittite and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, just as the LORD your God has commanded you, 18) lest they teach you to do according to all their abominations which they have done for their gods, and you sin against the LORD your God.’” – Deuteronomy 20:16-18.

Friends – the LORD our God had commanded the children of Israel to completely annihilate the cities that They were giving them as an inheritance! To completely destroy them – from the women, the children, the cattle, the sheep, the oxen. To let nothing remain alive.

The reason behind this: the LORD God knew that those abominable people would continue to produce even worse people than they were. Their children would grow into vile and despicable people in whose animals were – more than likely – being used in zoophilia and bestiality!

Sadly, the children of Israel – even under the rule of King Saul – did not do what the LORD God commanded. King Saul spared King Agag of the Amalekites, along with the cattle and the sheep.

Saul, the first king of the kingdom of Israel, disobeyed the LORD God!

Did this disobedience come back and bite the chosen people of God!?


A result?



Be sure to read all of 1st Samuel chapter 15.

Now, as was then, God’s living word says to us, “That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.” – Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Truly, the best way to resolve the radical Islamic terrorists is to annihilate them from the face of the earth, making them ashes under the feet of God’s people. As an example to all other evil and vile nations.

Now, that may sound like an unmerciful, unchristian idea. Yet, truly the only way for evil to disperse from existing is to “execute judgment on” those whom Satan the devil and his demons are influencing and using. “To convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds: which they are committing in an ungodly way,” including those ungodly sinners who have spoken ungodly things against Him! – cf. Jude 1:14-15. This evil terrorism will only truly be eliminated when our Lord Jesus Christ, His mighty angels, and His saints return! That glorious day is closer today than yesterday. □

Think About This... A Great Crisis Strikes Judah!

by Guy LaMar

In the land of Judah, the nation of Israel was confirmed as a nation in 1948. And, it was fully established as such in 1968. So, 75 years ago, the tiny nation in Palestine, Israel, was recognized as a nation. By most nations. And, 55 years ago, Israel was officially established as a nation unto the world!

There are many biblical prophecies throughout God’s living immutable word about the end-time events – including what our Lord Jesus Christ spoke of in Matthew chapter 24.

In verse 34, our Lord Jesus says –

’ Assuredly, I say to you, this generation [the generation that will see all these things take place] will by no means pass away till all these things take place.’

True Christians have come to understand and realize that the founding stock of the United States of America came from the tribe of Manasseh. And, the founding stock of Great Britain came from the tribe of Ephraim.

The living and holy word of the Eternal One prophesied about these soon-coming end-times just ahead. Here are but a few two-fold prophesies –

Zechariah 14:1-5

“’ BEHOLD, the Day of the LORD is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2) For I will gather all the nations to battle against JERUSALEM; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity [even subjugation], But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3) Then the LORD will go forth And fight against those nations [speaking here of the infamous Battle of Armageddon], As He fights in the day of battle. 4) And in that day His [our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ] feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.

5) Then you [in Jerusalem] shall flee through My mountain valley, For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee As you fled from THE EARTHQUAKE In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

Thus the LORD my God will come, And all the saints with You.’”

Also Matthew 24:15-18 –

’ Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place’ (whoever reads, let him understand), 16) ‘then let those who ARE IN JUDEA flee to the mountains [through My mountain valley]. 17) Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18) And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.’

Also Luke 21:20-21 –

’ But when you see JERUSALEM surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21) Then let those WHO ARE IN JUDEA flee to the mountains [through My mountain valley], let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22) For these are THE DAYS OF VENGEANCE, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.’

Also Jeremiah 30:5-7 –

“For thus says the LORD:

‘We have heard a voice of trembling, Of fear, and not of peace. 6) Ask now, and see, Whether a man is ever in labor with a child? So why do I see every man [IN JUDEA] with his hands on his loins Like a woman in labor, And all faces turned pale?

7) ALAS! For that day [the Day of the LORD; which will affect all nations eventually] is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.”

Also concerning this soon-coming end-time of trouble, this two-fold prophecy, Daniel 11:30-32 –

“ … ’So he [a final United European Catholic civic and military leader; who will be as tyrannical, if not worse than, Antiochus IV Epiphanes] shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31) And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there [on a rebuilt altar or temple] the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

32) Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt WITH FLATTERY; but the people who know their God [speaking of the “end-time prophets”] shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”

Continuing, Daniel 11:36-40 –

“’ Then the king [again, a final United European civic and military leader] shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every [false] god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper TILL THE WRATH [the Day of the LORD, which lasts 3 ½ years] has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.

37) He shall regard neither the God of his fathers NOR THE DESIRE OF WOMEN [will this final tyrannical European leader be a homosexual?], nor regard any [false] god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.

38) But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses [military purposes in ‘honoring a foreign god’ – as in military applications with The Large Hadron Collider?]; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things.

39) Thus he shall act against THE STRONGEST FORTRESSES [in this 21st-century ‘the strongest fortresses’ would be the United States of America, Israel, and the United Kingdom; in regards to “Jacob’s trouble”] with a foreign god [a foreign god of military might and strength], which he shall acknowledge, AND ADVANCE its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.

40) ‘AT THE TIME OF THE END the king of the South [a final confederation of Islamic nations civic and military leader] shall attack him; and the king of the North [this final United European Catholic civic and military leader] shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.

41) He shall also enter the Glorious Land [Palestine], and many countries shall be OVERTHROWN [they shall lose their sovereignty]; but these shall [initially] escape from his hand: Edom [which is Turkey], Moab [which is Iraq], and the prominent people of Ammon [or Jordan]. 42) He shall stretch out his hand [this final resurrection of the ‘king of the North’] against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.’”

Daniel 12:1 –

“’ AT THAT TIME Michael [a great archangel] shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation [speaking of Judah], Even to that time.

And AT THAT TIME your people shall be delivered [the physical remnant of the house of Israel and the house of Judah, as well as], Every one who is found written in the book [the Book of Life].

2) And many of those who sleep [are dead] in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life [speaking of the first resurrection], Some to shame and EVERLASTING contempt [speaking of the second resurrection after the Millennial Reign of Christ].’”

And, speaking of the founding stock of the United States of America and the founding stock of Great Britain –

Genesis 12:1, 2 –

“Now the LORD had said to Abram [whose name would be changed to Abraham] … 2) ‘I will make you A GREAT NATION; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.’”

Genesis 35:9-12 the promise is passed down to Jacob, Abraham’s grandson. God explicitly states –

“Then God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Padan Aram, and blessed him, ‘Your name is Jacob; your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel 1 shall be your name.’ So He called his name Israel. 11) Also God said to him: ‘I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; A NATION and A COMPANY OF NATIONS shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body. 12) The land which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.’”

Notice that 1st Chronicles 5:2 records for us this promise being passed on to Jacob’s/Israel’s son JOSEPH –

“ … although the birthright was Joseph’s ─”

In the Book of Genesis chapter 48, the promise is conferred upon Joseph’s two sons Manasseh and Ephriam –

Verse 15 – “And he [Jacob/Israel] blessed Joseph, and said:

‘God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has fed me all my life long to this day, 16) The [angel of the LORD God] 2 who redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads’ Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.’”

So, the LORD God would make the descendants of Manasseh A GREAT NATION. Other Scriptural passages proclaim and show us that Manasseh’s descendants would inherit incredible political, military, geographical, abundant natural resources, and agricultural blessings.

The Eternal our God has fulfilled His promise to make Manasseh A GREAT NATION, and Ephriam A COMPANY OF NATIONS. And, world history shows us that the LORD God’s promise to Abraham began to be fulfilled around the 1800s with the American Industrial Revolution. And by the mid-20th century, the United States of America had become the most powerful and affluent nation in world history! The US's exceptional military power and prosperity are a fulfillment of the LORD God’s promise to the descendants of Manasseh.

Greatest Quantity of True Christians

The United States of America has possessed the greatest quantity of true Christians in one place than any other nation on the planet! There is so much to be said concerning this topic – books worth. The key word being has – because, according to a 2015 Pew Research Center report – “the major new survey of more than 35,000 Americans by the Pew Research Center finds that the percentage of adults (ages 18 and older) who describe themselves as Christians has dropped by nearly eight percentage points in just seven years, from 78.4% in an equally massive Pew Research survey in 2007 to 70.6% in 2014. Over the same period, the percentage of Americans who are religiously unaffiliated – describing themselves as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular” – has jumped more than six points, from 16.1% to 22.8%.” 3

But to keep this article simple – we as begotten children of God should WATCH and PRAY and have our spiritual armor suited up!

Let us, brethren, follow the instructions of the LORD God –

2 Timothy 3:1-5 –

“But know this, that IN THE LAST DAYS perilous times will come:

2) For men [mankind] will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good; 4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5) having a form of godliness but denying its power.

And from such people turn away!”

And, it’s sad to say, such people are everywhere in this 21st-century world!

Also, as an angel of the LORD God told the Prophet Daniel concerning this end-time, there is an increase of knowledge. Increased knowledge in good and increased knowledge in the evil and bad. There is an increase of the living word of God. And, there is an increase of false prophets!

“’ But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until THE TIME OF THE END; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.’” – Daniel 12:4.

And sadly, as it was ‘in the days of Noah’ the majority of our peoples will be completely confused concerning the truth of the end-times. Or, they will completely ignore the loving gospel concerning the end-time.

’ But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 4 37) But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38) For as in the days before the Flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39) and did not know until the Flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.’ – Matthew 24:36-39.

The Apostle Peter also wrote of this TIME OF THE END –

2nd Peter 3:1-4 –

“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2) that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior,

3) knowing this FIRST: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4) and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For since our fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation [or rather, in this 21st century word, ‘from the beginning of the Big Bang!’].”

As our Lord Jesus Christ let us know – there would be several things to Watch and look out for. And, be sure to read TODAY "Prophetic Events to Watch For."

“ … ’ Take heed that no one deceives you [religiously and spiritually].you will hear of wars and rumors of wars [all throughout this present evil age]. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom [a reference to Daniel 11:40].famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.’

Truly, religious deception, wars, violence, and an increase in lawlessness. Droughts, famine, and great earthquakes in various places around the world, along with other natural catastrophes, disease epidemics, and the rise and aggression of a radical Islamic power!

The rise of a great and powerful United States of Catholic Europe's final civic and military leader who seeks global supremacy!

A great and influential false Catholic religious leader – an end-time pope.

Also, possibly a dozen “end-time prophets” coming upon the end-time scene, traveling throughout the nations and standing before “the god of the earth,” the final European Catholic civic leader, and the final false Catholic religious leader, proclaiming ‘let my people go!’ Along with proclaiming the ’gospel of the kingdom in all the world as a witness to all the nations.’

And then the end will come.

Brethren, many of these things ARE HAPPENING NOW!

As we Watch and Pray, we are witnessing what may be the end of the ‘beginning of sorrows’ before our very eyes!


The nation of “Israel” – populated today with the descendants of the tribe of Judah (along with a significant remnant of Levi and Benjamin) is going to suffer serious military losses, and lose part of its territory which is occupied by her enemies.

Our Jewish brethren in Israel are being attacked and will be heavily destroyed. God’s living word makes this abundantly clear!

This unprovoked and vicious attack of which Iran (certainly the greatest terrorist nation in the world) backed, stuck Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip.
When the city of David – Jerusalem – is attacked and divided, the foreign occupying powers will begin what God’s living word calls the ‘abomination of desolation.’

’ For then there shall be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 23) And unless those days were shortened, no flesh, would be saved [alive]; but for the elect’s sake [the physical remnant of the house of Israel and the house of Judah] those days will be shortened.’ 5

Then, ’ Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light [the atmosphere will be clogged with volcanic ash, along with a period of abnormal cold and darkness predicted to follow a nuclear war, caused by a layer of smoke and dust in the atmosphere blocking the sun's rays]; the stars [demonic angelic beings] will fall from heaven [the atmosphere], and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30) Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven [outer space], and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.’ – Matthew 24:21-22, 29-30.

And then the resurrection of the dead in Christ and those of us who remain and are alive are resurrected –

“ … ‘He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet [the SEVENTH TRUMPET BLAST], and they will gather together His elect [His spiritual elect] from the four winds, from one end of heaven [the atmosphere] to the other.’ – Matthew 24:31.

And then, the seven last plagues upon an unrepentant mankind.

Yes, brethren and friends, all roads point to a rough period of time just before us.

As our Lord Jesus commands –

’ But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness [and even spiritual drunkenness], and cares of this life, and that Day [the Day of the LORD] come on you unexpectedly. 35) For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36) Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.’ – Luke 21:34-36.

‘These things’ are beginning to occur, and it’s about to get so much worse!

Sadly, the majority of our peoples will just continue on as they always have – ‘like it was in the days of Noah.’ And just like those before, they will meet their doom. □

1) ISRAEL means “struggle with God” #3478 – However, many other Bible help books (and I realize that the Strong’s Concordance isn’t the most accurate, or maybe the most extensive word study help you can use; my hardback states “struggle with God” – the Online Strong’s states “He will rule as God”) does state that the name Israel has a shocking meaning - “He will rule as God.”
2) See also Gen. 22:11; 28:13-15; 31:11; Hebrews 11:21.
4) Surely, we have to presume that our Lord Jesus Christ now knows.
5) “In this we see the word “shortened” used for the Greek word “syntemnō”. A deeper study shows that this is correctly translated into “limited”. While both words can work in theory, it will depend on who is “teaching” the scriptures. Why? Ministers who do not study the Scriptures and their original translation diligently may teach from their own understanding, rather than from the Scriptures. This Scripture does NOT mean that God will shorten the time of the tribulation randomly. But rather is it already limited to 3 1/2 years for the elect's sake. God does not lie, and does not change.” – Samuel LaMar.
