Not the New World Order
To Honor Jesus Christ, Glorify
God, Encourage Believers, & Warn All
information is offered with the hope that YOU can come to KNOW the Lord
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. - 1 John 2:15
The question before us today - what is the object of our love? Where is our hope placed? Is it in our jobs? Is our hope in our possessions? Is our hope in our retirement? Is our hope in our comfortable life? Is our hope in our businesses? Is our hope in our houses? Is our hope in our cars? Is our hope in our church? Is our hope in our democratic government? Is our hope in our economy? Is our hope in a peaceful and prosperous world? Is our hope in the freedoms we enjoy? Is our hope in our past times, entertainment, and pleasure?
Do we believe that all the world's problems will be fixed by MEN and that the world will continue to progress toward a utopian state of prosperity and freedom for all? The question here is - do we believe in God (and God's view of men ) or do we believe in men and the works of men?
For those who say that believers in the second coming of Jesus Christ are "gloom and doomers", I offer this bit of good news concerning the future of the earth under the reign of Jesus Christ. Before this good news comes, however, there will be an awful set of choices facing the world's population . These awful choices described in the Bible are consistent with what men are saying is about to occur. Men AND the Bible are saying that these things will happen . The documentation to support this assertion is offered below. The main point to understand here is that [even from a secular view], life [as you now know it] will soon be gone forever. What are you going to do then?
My purpose here is to document that the plans that men have for your future will eliminateALL the HOPES above on which you might be relying. If you are hoping on these and relying on them, you need to prayerfully consider what I am about to tell you. Your present hopes are going to be shattered. You need a new hope. My sincere hope is that one day you and I can share what God has done for each of us. I am writing this solely to warn you because I love you. There is nothing in it for me to tell you this and I take no pleasure whatsoever in having to say these things. In fact, it is painful to consider these events.
If you believe what God said in the Bible, you can find out for yourself that these things are true. The facts below are readily available in books and on the internet. The problem is that we do not believe what God has said. Our hope is in the world and we do not want to give it up. The Bible says there will be a world government . The problem with the Bible believers is they apparently think that the world government is going to fall out of the sky and land on Europe in the distant future. Many non-believers think that world government will never happen. World government will happen. The question is - what are you going to do now?
Remember, obey the Bible, obey the law, give honor to whom honor is due, esteem others above self, pray, if possible live peaceably with all men, be content with what you have, be thankful, do not expect the world to be reformed-improved-blessed or made "christian" and let the Lord guide you into the patient waiting for His soon return. Always remember that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. Remember that all of us are sinners and we are all in need of a savior. Man, apart from faith in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, is - by nature - the enemy of God. It is trusting in man, and not the Lord, that has brought man to this point in history. All of us will bow the knee to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Will we do this freely now or will we do it when it is too late?
This study is dedicated to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the coming King. It is written with the hope that believers will be edified by the evidence herein of His soon return and the amazing truth, accuracy, and complete reliability of the King James Bible, the Word of God. If the Lord is willing, perhaps He will bring some who read this to be saved. For all it is my hope that some will return to the Bible and be awakened to the sobering reality of God's IMMINENT unfolding of the AWESOME events in the Book of REVELATION. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
GOOD NEWS is COMING
Isaiah 11:6-12 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Isaiah 12:1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
Isaiah 12:3-5 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
Corinthians 13:2 "And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I AM NOTHING."
Friend, if I have ALL KNOWLEDGE and have not love, I AM NOTHING. This verse humbled me and made me realize that I AM nothing. It is for this reason that I offer my sincerest heart-felt concern and love to all those whose name or organization is mentioned in this study.
Why? I used to think, myself, that I was important. My life revolved around what I was going to accomplish. Then the LORD showed me that I am NOTHING. After this, everything changed. The world's offerings gradually lost all meaning.
If your name is in this study, it is probably because I walk where you walk, loving self more than loving the LORD JESUS. I can tell you plainly that I am NOTHING but a SINNER saved by grace and my hope for you is that you be saved by grace too. This study exists solely because I love you.
The writing of this study was enabled by the fact that there is nothing in the world that I need. The LORD has already provided me with everything I need and no one can take away what the Lord gives. This, friend, is true peace, knowing that Jesus is LORD of LORDS and KING of KINGS. Get to know Him yourself. Repent of what you have done wrong. Accept Jesus as your personal savior. Your sins put Him on the cross. Then, please forgive me for what I said about you.
All true believers already forgive you for what you have done to hurt the cause of truth by promoting yourself in this world - even if you never ask for forgiveness. More importantly, the LORD is waiting to forgive you - if you will only ask Him.
No matter what anyone in the world has done to you, believe me, insisting on being RIGHT is just going to make matters worse for you. If you are a Marxist, do not worry about what the CIA or the pope did to you. If you are a "merchant", you can forget forever the money and power you have pursued and those that tried to obstruct you. If you are a popish person, you must remember that your religion is completely useless to God. If you are CIA, please consider that insisting your side is "right" is part of the problem. If you were OK, why did Jesus have to DIE in YOUR place? The truth - "there is NONE that doeth GOOD, no not one." [Rom 3:12] "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God." [Rom 3:23] I love you. My hope is that you can give up pride and worldy ambition.
I trust that we can discuss this in the kingdom of the LORD. Reader, the warnings above apply to you also because ALL of us have become "popes" by stubbornly insisting that WE are "right" and the instrument of God. To all of the "big" people, I say, "REPENT!" To all of the "little" people in the world I say, see you in the kingdom of the Lord. This study could be subtitled The First Chapter of the Last Book on Prophecy, because each of us has a DECISION to make. YOU write your own ending - your eternal destiny. It is not too late, unless you have received the mark of Revelation 14:11.
As this study progressed, two conflicting emotions emerged: first, a rejoicing over His imminent return and, second, an awful sadness over the fearful events which many will soon be forced to endure.
I stand ready to be corrected if you find any errors in this study.
Let me close here by citing the example of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh.
Hebrews 5:8 "Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;"
Though he was the Son of God, he LEARNED obedience by the things which he suffered. This is our example. We are to learn obedience by enduring the things which God has placed in our lives that we "be conformed to the image of His Son." [Rom 8:29] Please learn some today.
Before you proceed, you may need to read about antichrist-type thinking , a thing which all of us should be careful to avoid.
