I'm happy that you are aware of the "signs of the time" and that you are devout in following God's word. I am here right now to preach to you and
please don't take it the wrong way. I truely need your common beliefs to do this properly but judging by what you've already written, I'll guess
that you are some form of protestant. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Now for the preaching....
I have recently discovered the truth and I'm sure you hear that by most denominations but how many churches claim this and still contradict what the
bible truely says? Let's honor God by doing His will and following His commandments. Here are a list of things that you may or may not follow and
what the bible really says.
1. Do you go to church on sundays? God commanded to keep the sabbath holy and this commandment was never changed in the New Testament. Most
christians will spout out things like, "you should worship God every day!" and that is true but God commanded one specific day which in biblical
standards would be friday sundown to saturday sundown. He said that no work shall be done on this day and it is Holy to God. It doesn't matter how
rediculous it sounds. It's a commandment by God and God says breaking one commandment is breaking them all.
2. Do you believe you will go to Heaven when you die? "No man has ascended to heaven except He who came from heaven, the Son of Man who is in
heaven." (John 3:13). Truth be told, there are 2 resurrections to take place. One when Jesus returns and one 1000 years later. If people die and
go to heaven or hell, who is being resurrected? There is much more to learn on this subject but I will not get into it in this thread. Look in my
profile and you'll find some threads to help you out. Earth was made for mankind. Jesus returns to set His Kingdom here on earth, not up in heaven.
3. Do you believe sinners go to hell and burn forever? The bible doesn't mention eternal suffering for the wicked, but permanent death. The lake
of fire is known as the second death. No one is currently burning there and they won't until the two resurrections take place. The beast and false
prophet will be the first to burn. They burn and die. No torment for eternity. To believe that is to contradict the scripture mentioning the gift
of eternal life. To be tormented forever is to have everlasting life, just not a good one.
4. Do you celebrate christmas, easter, etc? These days are pagan in origin and contradict biblical teachings. Easter for instance is contradictory
of the day Jesus died and how many days He was in the grave before resurrecting. How do you fit 3 days and 3 nights from good friday to easter
sunday? friday afternoon to sunday morning. That's only 1 1/2 day and 2 nights. He died on passover and resurrected on the sabbath. Christmas is
just a mixture of different winter solstice sun worshipping ceremonies. Jeremiah 10:1-5 explains ancient pagan tree decorating and Deuteronomy
12:29-32 explains God's dislike in mixing paganism with biblical doctrine. Scripture also proves that Jesus wasn't born in the winter. Once again,
visit my profile for more in-depth info on these subjects.
5. Do you celebrate God's Holy Days which are commanded in the bible?
Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentacost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, and the Last Great Day are all commanded in
Leviticus 23. Jesus and the 1st century church still celebrated all of these Holy Days. Christians are to celebrate them with a more advanced
meaning vs. the Jewish customs though. Passover is pictured in the image of the "Last Supper" which was on passover. This is what "good friday"
should be. The resurrection took place on the third day of unleavened bread. Remove the leaven/yeast from your household for 7 days as a symbol of
removing sin from your life. Pentacost is the day the New Testament Church started. This day also represents the late spring harvest in which the
Jews would give up their firstfruits of the harvest. This ultimately pictures Jesus as the firstfruits of mankind seeing that He was the first of
mankind to be resurrected. Feast of Trumpets represents the tribulation and return of Christ with the blowing of the 7 trumpets. Day of Atonement is
a 24 hour period of fasting to symbolically atone for your wrongdoing or sins. To give God glory for removing Satan from the world. It is pictured
as the beginning of the 1000 year reign of Christ on earth. The Feast of Tabernacles is 7 days in paradise which picture the 1000 years of peace on
earth. Usually, practicing christians will join their church to a sort of getaway or paradise and glorify God in these outings. The last great day
signifies the "Great White Throne Judgement" or second resurrection along with the new heaven and new earth and is actually an 8th day of
These "holy days" may seem wierd to you but all make clear God's ultimate plan for mankind. We recognize Jesus as our savior and repent of our
transgression (passover), work on keeping sin out of our lives (unleavened bread), become baptised by water and holy spirit in order to become
firstfruits of Christ just as He was the firstfruits of all mankind (pentacost), watch and prepare for the return of Christ as the tribulation draws
ever closer to us (Trumpets), atone to God and give Him the Glory as our eyes will be open after the removal of Satan's influence (Atonement), live
in paradise as a king or priest in God's kingdom during the 1000 year reign of Christ on earth (Tabernacles), and live eternity in the kingdom of God
without the fear of the second death, where there are no more tears, sorrows, pain, death, etc.(last day).
My point is, truly read the bible and follow God's laws and commands. Jesus even said the only way to eternal life is to "keep the commandments."
God bless you and your post. I just thought you might want to consider some of your well-meaning but ill-advised practices. Keep away from the
traditions of men, especially if they go against scripture. Also, you might want to concentrate more on the European Union for our end-time beast or
world power. America will have her part in this merger though. Think about it.... a revived Roman Empire based in Europe, influenced by the Roman
Catholic Church (false prophet, harlot riding the scarlet beast), and birthed by the signing of the "Treaty of Rome". Accepting worldly things or
following the traditions of men is taking the mark of the beast. Your hands are your actions and your forhead is your thoughts. Physically, the rfid
technology makes it possible to have a literal mark. Just my thoughts.
