Do The Old Testament Levitical Feasts Forecast The Time Of Christ’s Return?

 We will show the movie The Coming Convergence at our church at 6 PM, Sunday, May 7, 2017.  It relates to believer and unbeliever alike, how the fulfillment of ancient prophecies is lining up.  It also features (see in the You Tube below), how Christ’s famous words:  “No man knows the day or the hour,” are related to the Feasts of Trumpets and may have a deeper meaning than has been surmised in the past.  Live in the light of His soon return, and pray for revival in America.

Maranatha, Pastor Steve

New discovery proves when Jesus returns? Theologians reconsider what was meant by “no one knows the day or hour”.
 
You might have heard it said that “no one can know the day or the hour” for the return of Jesus, and as a result, millions are ignoring the prophetic warnings that surround us in these last days; however, through a shocking discovery within the biblical timeline, this phrase, that so many use as an excuse to ignore the coming Tribulation, may actually have been taken entirely out of context.

No matter your view of the tribulation period or the second coming, you MUST watch this new video from PNW. This shocking insight was exposed by a new film called, The Coming Convergence, that presents evidence to finally prove to non-believers that Bible prophecy is real!

In fact, the message is so powerful, that many are calling for churches of all denominations across America to show it to their congregations! Make no mistake, The Coming Convergence is not what you would expect from your typical prophecy film, but is so life-changing, retailers are having trouble keeping it in stock as the word continues to spread!

This film will not only excite and strengthen your personal faith, but can be an invaluable tool to share with those that don’t believe the Bible.

 

The Coming Convergence  ~  Additional Information

Is it possible to know the day of our demise? Jesus chastised religious leaders in ancient Jerusalem for not knowing the time of His first arrival. Will the prophesied final generation today make the same mistake? The Bible foretells that the end of days would be preceded by a sequence of global events that has never before occurred, but can this be proven? Through newly exposed geological and statistical evidence, a convergence of events has now been discovered that many believe finally prove the Tribulation is about to begin! This whistleblower film breaks the mold of what a documentary can be by pulling you deeper into the reality of the approaching apocalypse as you follow the story of a young girl (Erin Hawkins) that is living through the end of days. Her cinematic interruptions throughout the documentary act as a warning to the genuine reality humankind will soon face. The conclusion of The Coming Convergence leaves such an impact that attendees during the film’s theatrical premiere in California were driven to tears and shock. Features Jack Hibbs, Ray Bentley, Douglas Hamp, Brent Miller Sr, Tom Hughes and Kade Hawkins. Written and directed by award winning filmmaker, Brent Miller Jr.

Born Again 1

Have you ever wondered what the phrase “born again” means?  The Bible records that Jesus used the phrase in a conversation with a man named Nicodemus.  Nicodemus approached Jesus at night.  He was curious about Jesus and the kingdom of God.

Jesus told him: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).  Nicodemus responded, “How can a man be born when he is old?” (John 3:4).

Nicodemus was a highly moral man who obeyed God’s law.  He was a respected leader of the Jewish community.  No doubt he was a fine man.  Yet something was lacking.  Like Nicodemus, many people today confuse religion with new birth in Christ.  Phrases like “I pray regularly” or  “I believe there is a God” often are confused with a real new-birth experience.

New birth begins with the Holy Spirit convicting a person that a person is a sinner.  Because of sin, we are spiritually dead.  For this reason, spiritual birth, as Jesus described it, is necessary.  God loves us and gives us spiritual birth when we ask Him for it.

The Bible says all persons are sinners (see Romans 3:23).  Jesus died on a cross and was raised from the dead to save sinners.  To be born again means that a person admits to God that he or she is a sinner, repents of sin, believes in or trusts Christ, and confesses faith in Christ as Savior and Lord.  Jesus told Nicodemus that everyone who believes in (places faith in) Christ would not perish (see John 3:16).  Jesus is the only One who can save us (see John 14:6).

To believe in Jesus is to be born again.  Confess your sins and ask Jesus right now to save you.  “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”  (Acts 2:21).  After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, share your decision with another person, and following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith  (see Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:6).

Suffering / Part 8 Of 8

Why Christians Suffer

continued from Part 7…

9)Suffering Teaches Us To Pray

You have heard the saying  “There are no atheists in foxholes.”  Due to our sinful human natures, sometimes the only time we pray is when our backs are to the wall, and there is no one else to turn to.  Pray is our last resort.

10)Suffering Brings Rewards

There is a special reward for those who suffer patiently for Him.  Paul tells us in II Timothy 2:12  “If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him.”  We are made perfect through suffering.  Steel is iron plus fire.  Soil is rock plus crushing.  The Christian life is faith plus suffering.  It is God’s way of doing things.  It is God’s own way of making us what we ought to be.  God’s way is through fire, and through the fire He will perfect us.

Christianity does not promise us an easy walk.  We will always encounter many trials and tribulations, but if we look to Jesus in faith, He will carry our load.  Christianity promises us  1)all the grace of God we need, 2)a peace of mind beyond understanding that only a Christian has, and 3)we know we are heaven bound once we are “born again.”  What more can we ask for?  Are you suffering?  Then thank the Lord for it because it shows you are growing in Christ. 

Continued from Part 7…  This entire eight part series on suffering is all listed under the category entitled Devotionals/Inspirationals.

 

 

 

The New World Order Is Here

Under the presidential administration of Barack Hussein Obama, the United States of America has handed over the Internet to ICANN.  (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).  This means that the United Nations will ultimately control the Internet, and they will monitor all speech on line.  They will control all of the finances of the world and severely curtail our freedoms.  National sovereignty is rapidly disappearing.  Why has the leadership in our government done this?  Because ever since the failed Tower of Babel, fallen mankind desires to set up his own kingdom, and place the One True God of the universe out of the equation.

The Temple May Soon Be Built! ~ Prophecy News Watch

Israel is God’s Prophetic Time Piece.  When the church age is concluded with following the rapture, Israel will be the focal point during the seventieth week of Daniel (Great Tribulation).  The Temple will be ground zero in reference to the activities during this volatile time in history.  The commencement of the building of the Temple will indicate that we are knocking at the door to the end of the age.  Enjoy this article from the website Prophecy News Watch.  Open the following links for pictures of the proposed Temple, and important additional information.

Radical Islamist Extremists In America

WND Exclusive

.icx-toolbar{padding: 0 0 5px 0;}image: http://www.wnd.com/files/2014/08/jihadist.jpg

jihadistA Muslim man entered a private gathering of Christians in a hotel ballroom in South Dakota, started cursing and livestreaming video on Facebook of the event and then, after he was ushered out, displayed multiple firearms and issued statements the speakers say were a direct threat to their safety.

The man, wearing a t-shirt that said, “I’m American, I’m a Muslim, I open carry, I conceal carry, and I’m dangerous only if you’re stupid,” was approached by a security guard and told to leave.

Once back in his car, he brandished an arsenal of weapons, including two military-style rifles with loaded magazines and three handguns, and made several threats of “Be scared, be F—ing scared. Be terrified.” Again, it was all livestreamed on Facebook while parked in the conference-center parking lot.

To the surprise of the conference organizers in Sioux Falls, after reviewing the videos, police chose not to charge the man with any crime. The state’s attorney says he’s still investigating but didn’t see anything criminal in nature on the videos.

The Muslim man, Ehab Jaber, a self-described former resident of Saudi Arabia who works as a server at a local steakhouse in Sioux Falls, was questioned by police and the FBI following his bizarre behavior at the April 9 Christian Worldview conference. And now two of the speakers at the event are saying if the security guard had not noticed Jaber’s strange activity and escorted him out, something “bad” could have happened to roughly 500 Christians, including women, children and at least two state legislators who were in attendance.

“It was a ticketed event but we didn’t have enough volunteers to be checking everyone coming in throughout the event,” said Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim turned Christian pastor and one of the speakers. “This guy came in after the event started so the way the hotel was set up, there were just too many ways to get in. This was a private event, a closed event for Christians, but that’s how he got in, because we just didn’t have the manpower to be checking everyone.”

“I do believe the off-duty police officer who noticed what was going on is a hero who may have stopped a potential attack,” said Brannon Howse, who was on the podium speaking when Jaber was asked to leave.

Watch video streamed live on Facebook:

Jaber entered the Worldview Weekend Conference at the Hilton Garden Inn on Palm Sunday, April 9, where several hundred people gathered to hear speakers address Islamic persecution of Christians worldwide. Jaber’s first action was to film the cover of his Quran, then he began panning the audience.

Jaber was approached by a retired police officer who was working security at the event, where it was announced beforehand that no videos were allowed to be taken. He told the officer he was a Muslim and gave a false name.

“My name is John Smith,” he said, as he is shown on the video being ushered out. “The Muslim John Smith.”

After the security guard escorted Jaber out of the conference he  made a second video from his car, parked in the hotel parking lot, in which he displayed two military-style rifles and three handguns, as well as dozens of rounds of ammunition loaded into magazines.

“There’s about, probably 400 people in there, if not maybe 500. And now if you want to be really scared. Be scared,” he said, as he held up five different weapons in the second video. “Be scared. Be terrified.”

The speakers at the event, Hadian and radio talk-show host Brannon Howse, spoke with local law enforcement afterward and also contacted the FBI.

But Jaber was not arrested nor charged with any crime.

“In America, there is now a separate set of laws for Muslims and non-Muslims,” wrote activist/author Pamela Geller in her blog Monday. “Sharia in America. If a non-Muslim was armed to the teeth obscenely threatening Muslims with massive firepower at a mosque in their parking lot, he would be arrested, his face smeared across every newspaper and nightly news program across the country. This Muslim was not arrested.”

The strange story of the unwelcome guest was prefaced, Hadian points out, by important background leading up to the event.

Earlier this year the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center added Hadian’s ministry, Truth in Love Ministries of Spokane, Washington, to its list of “hate groups.” Since that happened, wherever Hadian speaks he encounters protests from Muslims and liberal activist groups. The local mosque in Sioux Falls was tipped off to Hadian’s impending visit to Sioux Falls by an article in the local newspaper, the Argus Leader, which cited the “hate group” designation by SPLC.

The Sioux Falls Police Department notified the speakers that the Islamic Center of Sioux Falls filed a permit to protest the Worldview Weekend Rally because they viewed the event as bigoted and “Islamophobic.”

The property for the Islamic Center of Sioux Falls is owned by the North American Islamic Trust, or NAIT, meaning it is a part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s network of American mosques waging “Civilization Jihad,” said John Guandolo, a former FBI counter-terrorism specialist who now consults law enforcement agencies nationwide.

“The Muslim Brotherhood threatened, a Muslim showed up in what was a possible thwarted attack, and local officials did nothing,” Guandolo wrote in a blog at Understanding the Threat.

“This is how America will lose this war if it does not change course immediately at the local level.”

“The media trashed on Shahram and myself a week before we got there,” Howse told WND. “I believe the police administration saw that, and they didn’t want their department to be labeled as we were. The politicians have a political career to be worried about. They’re self-serving people who do not care about the American people and their safety, just their own politically correct careers.”

Hadian was also baffled.

“This is not good for us. We’re going to have to have more security, probably see more protests. His videos are probably going to go viral. He’s now getting hundreds of views on his pages, he’s going to be glorified.”

Hadian said about 40 to 50 protesters greeted him and Howse when they arrived at the hotel in Sioux Falls to speak.

He said he has no problem with the protesters, but when an armed man sneaks into the event and films it live on Facebook while uttering a profanity-laced tirade, that concerns him.

“We’re now told by our legal counsel, that the prosecutor in that county, the prosecutor in Sioux Falls, they’re going to do nothing,” Hadian said. “Nothing, nothing, nothing. That’s outrageous.”

The message being sent by law enforcement is clear, says Howse: “If you are a Christian daring to speak out against Islamic violence, then prepare to be a martyr, because the elected prosecutors, which are really politicians, don’t give a darn about you or your safety.”

Howse, founder of Worldview Weekend Foundation and Worldview Radio, said he wonders what the response from law enforcement would be if an armed white Christian walked into a Muslim conference and made the same type of comments on a livestream video? He said he believes the outcome would have been different.

“He is armed to the hilt and he’s parked outside the hotel where we are holding our conference and he shows his weapons on video and says, ‘Be scared. Be terrified,’ cursing all the while,” Howse said. “We had to edit his profanity out of the video.”

Howse said his organization kept the incident quiet for a week. They wanted to give law enforcement a chance to investigate and “see if they would do the right thing.” Secondly, they had four more cities lined up on the speaking tour so they did not want to call more attention to themselves and stir up more protests and possible violence by intolerant leftist organizations like those who set fires on the campus of University of California at Berkeley earlier this year.

Immigration without assimilation is an invasion — but it’s a subtle invasion and not many Americans are aware of it. Get all the facts in the book Michele Bachmann has called the “most important read of 2017.” It’s “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad.”

After the event Sunday in Sioux Falls, they moved on to speak in the Wisconsin cities of LaCrosse, Green Bay, Madison and Milwaukee. Five cities in five nights.

The FBI sent out a bulletin alerting the other four cities on the speaking tour to make sure security was beefed up for the Christian Worldview conferences.

“I believe that police officer who was off duty, who caught him filming with his Quran, I believe he stopped something from happening,” Howse told WND. “One of the police officers told me ‘I think we stopped something bad from happening.’”

Police say no law was broken

Lt. Mike Colwell of the Sioux Falls Police Department, confirmed for WND that no charges will be filed by his department.

“It is correct there was a gentlemen who arrived at the event and was livestreaming it was contacted by a hired security guard at the event,” Colwell said. “And when officers did contact him they were able to check his social media, Facebook account, and found videos where he did display some guns and make some threats but the threats were not directed at any one specific individual or group. He was using speech that was aggressive but not necessarily saying it was threatening. The video was made in the parking lot outside the conference. We completed the investigation, which was reviewed by the state’s attorney’s office in Lincoln County, and at this time the state’s attorney has decided not to charge him with anything related to the event or any of the language used that’s being shown on that video.”

Lincoln County State’s Attorney Tom Wolman, told WND, however, that he is still investigating the incident, as is the FBI.

“It is an active, open investigation. That is not the case [that a decision has been made],” he said.

But Wolman said the fact that police did not make an arrest at the scene makes his job harder.

“They did not make an arrest. Since they did not make an arrest, obviously they didn’t believe there was probable cause that a crime was committed.

“I don’t know that we’ll have anything more in the near future on it but you’re welcomed to check back,” Wolman added.

‘No double standard in South Dakota’

Wolman said Jaber was within his rights as a South Dakota resident to “open carry” weapons in his car or on his person or to conceal carry if he had a valid permit.

“The constitutional rights are there. Obviously law enforcement made the decisions that there wasn’t a violation of state gun laws,” he said.

He said he did not agree with Howse that South Dakota had a “double standard” for applying the law, one for Muslims who are treated as an “oppressed minority” and another for non-Muslims who get the book thrown at them.

“Maybe that double standard exists in some parts of the country. I don’t believe it exists in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, I don’t think that was part of the story here,” he told WND. “And, at any rate, we enforce the law across the board, whether it’s a Christian offender or Muslim offender, we look at the facts that we have in front of us. And that’s the standard we have.”

Asked if he was afraid of Muslim civil rights groups suing the city, Wolman said he was not.

“Every day of the week on this job I am aware that there is evil in our community, and by the oath of office I took, I am also aware that I have to apply the law fairly… I am not afraid of anyone, certainly not Mr. Jaber.”

He said he was “not aware” of any crimes on Jaber’s record.

“I’m not aware of any record. He’s a host and a server in a very high-end steak house here in Sioux Falls and everyone who works with him enjoys working with him. We can’t run roughshod over people’s First Amendment rights, or their Second Amendment rights,” he said.

“We’re taking this very, very seriously,” Wolman told WND.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Romans 12:1  King James Version (KJV)

12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

King James Version (KJV)Public Domain

In 1965, Jim Elliot was one of five godly men who died at the end of Auca lances in Ecuador.  In his diary he had written, “Lord, I pray Thee, light these idle sticks of my life, that I may burn for thee.  I seek not a long life, but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus.”  The Lord granted Jim Elliot’s request, and today the five, then ignited, still burns in the hearts and lives of redeemed Aucas.  What is our passion?  -Arnot P. McIntee.

Breathe on me, breath of God, Till I am wholly Thine, Until the earthly part of me Glows with Thy fire divine.  -E. Hatch

Disney Now Has Cartoon Showing Homosexuals Kissing

The popular children’s entertainment company Disney aired its first-ever same-sex kissing scene on [February 28] during a broadcast of its television cartoon Star vs. the Forces of Evil, raising concerns from Christian and family groups who are calling upon parents to kiss Disney goodbye….

Homosexual advocacy groups cheered the inclusion, stating, “We’re getting there, one kiss at a time.”

…However, others expressed concern, stating that Disney should not be pushing the homosexual agenda on children.

“This is the last place parents would expect their children to be confronted with content regarding sexual orientation,” One Million Moms wrote on their website….

-Christiannews.net

Editor’s Comments:  Again Disney is promoting an agenda that is antifamily.  Parents should think twice about allowing their children to watch anything currently coming from them.

UK, Australia Won’t Fund Free Abortions After Trump Defunds International Planned Parenthood

The United Kingdom and Australia did not give money to a new global abortion fund [early March], despite intense pressure from abortion activists worldwide.

The new “She decides” abortion fund comes in reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order prohibiting American taxpayer funding to groups that promote or perform abortions overseas.

USA Today reports representatives from more than 45 countries attended a meeting about the new abortion fund on [March 2] in Brussels, Belgium.  About a dozen countries and several private donors pledged money totaling 181 million euros (about $190 million), according to the report.

While the UK and Australia sent representatives to the meeting, neither country promised money.

“Straight Pride” fliers were removed [March 3] by an Indiana high school before the students arrived [at] school.  The 16-year-old….student who created and hung “Straight Pride” fliers in an Indiana high school has spoken out since officials took them down….and fellow students hosted a pro-acceptance gathering over the weekend in response to the incident.

The fliers ….read, “Celebrate being straight at JHS by not annoying the heck out of everyone about your sexual orientation!”  along with “We are taking back the rainbow” and “Brought to you by all the students that are sick of hearing about your LGBT Pride.”  -theblaze.com

“Millennials”

Sixty percent of “millennials” are living with their parents or other relatives or are sharing living quarters with a roommate (USA Today, 3/21/17.  Source, Trulia Analysis of Census data).

“Millennials” they call them.  They’re between the ages of 18 and 35.

We will admit that certain circumstances in anybody’s family could create the necessity for staying at home.  That could be true at almost any age, but 60 percent is three out of five.  That’s a perplexing statistic.

Why aren’t these birds leaving the nest?  Is it because they have not learned to fly?  Have we failed to get them ready to make it on their own?

Financial issues will account for some of this; but knowing the way our society is being shaped, it is pretty clear that the bigger issue is young people who are unready to be adults.

Christian families need to be alert to how they are raising their offspring.

This article is another reason I believe this could be the terminal generation.  Absolutely any people with convictions about anything whatsoever, will be able to supersede this clueless and feckless generation who lack personal values, integrity, and cannot even pull their own weight.   Pastor Steve

Amen Corner

An enemy said of Spurgeon, “Here is a man who has not moved an inch forward in all his ministry.  At the close of the nineteenth century he is teaching the theology of the first century and is proclaiming doctrine current in Nazareth and Jerusalem in the first century!”  Spurgeon considered it his greatest compliment.

What is the profit to America by having endless economic prosperity, computers and a hundred channels of television in every home…if our families are shattered and our children corrupted?  -Former Senator Bill Armstrong

A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a devil.  -James A. Garfield

I will blaze the trail, though my grave be only a steppingstone that younger men may follow and make Christ known where He is unknown.  -C. T. Studd

Much of our difficulty as seeking Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly.  We insist upon trying to modify Him and to bring Him nearer to our own image.  A.W. Tozer

Perhaps you have never been stalked by a bloodthirsty beast of prey.  Nevertheless, there is a wild beast on your trail.  Swift and pitiless, retribution trails you.  “Be sure your sin will find you out”  (Numbers 32:23).
