How Big Will Heaven Be?


just as there was an old Earth and old heaven according to the Bible, there will also be a new Earth and a new Heaven. As I mentioned in a previous post, the twos are wild in the Bible. Heaven and Hell, life and death, a believer and an unbeliever, and Old and New Covenant just to name a few. What will the new Earth be like? Does the Bible describe it? Actually yes and it gives the specifications of Size as well. The new Earth will be approximately 2/3 the size of the United States. However it will also be 2/3 upward as well. And remember according to Matthew 7:13-14 There Will Be Few that find it. On the old Earth, difficult is the way that leads to life and few find it. Hell, on the other hand, will have many in it. Knowing this, today might be a very good day to accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior.

GLOBAL WARMING


Is there such an entity as global warming? Politicians like Al Gore have been running about for years warning against it. But does even Gore realize that along the prophetic line of the future that God has arranged a second earth for us? Be patient Al, for you get the egg by hatching it open, not by smashing it.

THE CHURCH WITHIN- Enter by the Broad Gate


Williamson  is currently running for President of the United States on the Democratic ticket and has been vilified by her party by her simple message, love. It is from a love typified by A Course in Miracles. Of course her teachings on love the Miracle itself endangers. 

The Church Within endorses A Course in Miracles along with a host of others such the benefits of Islamic prayer, understanding your Creator through Native Indian Theology, and healing the Christian Science Way.  Their whole teaching philosophy stems from the broad way. They believe fundamental Christianity is narrow minded. And they are ever so right. Which marks them as being eternally wrong.  NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH CHRIST- John 14:6.

The Formula to Eternal Life


This is eternal life, that they may know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. That is the formula to eternal life. Then the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth. How is your relationship with God? Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your lord and savior? For that is the Divine recipe for eternal life.

Homosexual “dogs” OUTSIDE of Heaven


When the Bible says beware of dogs they aren’t talking about the animal kind. In the Greek, dogs referred to homosexual sodomites. The reference to outside refers to being outside of Heaven or hell if you will. I believe that one of the punishments of hell is that those there can see heaven. All the glorification that they can take in could have been theirs had they repented and turned from their wicked way. In Lazarus and the rich man, the rich man being in torments in Hades could see Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom. He could even talk to him. But those in the Lake of Fire will not have that right. But they will be able to see heaven even though heaven will not be able to see them. To those that believe they are going to heaven as a homosexual are believing and trusting in a lie. Repent now before it is too late.

Does the Bible Teach Eternal Security?


Judas may be the prime example to refute eternal security. He began as one of the 12 disciples but then he betrayed Christ. He betrayed Christ for 30 pieces of silver. Some may say that Judas was never saved. Jesus himself chose Judas. Christ often said, he that endures to the end will be saved. Endurance is a key factor to Salvation. The Apostle Paul said, I have finished the race. He didn’t stop in the middle because he was saved. He endured to the end. Once saved always saved theology is an invitation to sin at any time because you are already saved. I remember once when the 70 returned with joy because even the demons are subject to them. Jesus rebuked them saying, do not rejoice because the demons are subject to you but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven. Quite a lesson for those that are absorbed by power. I believe that the Bible is quite clear that those that endure to the end will be saved. I have kept the faith as opposed to abandoning it. 

A good friend once told me to never leave 1st Timothy 4:1 out of this discussion. The Spirit says THAT SOME WILL DEPART FROM THE FAITH.  Apostasy!

 

Walls Can Be Overcome


What exactly can take down a wall? A stick of Dynamite? A sledgehammer? Walls can be breached quite easily so why put enormous amounts of money into a wall? Right now walls are very much the talk of the country. At one time both parties were interested in a wall on our Southern border. At separate times of course. Why bother? It is easy to take down a wall. Look at the wall between East and West Germany and how easy it came down once the effort was made to do so. Did you know that a wall existed, a very formidable wall, that lasted through the entire Old Testament and the Gospels and ended just about the time of Stephen. It was up there in a long time and it was called a wall of partition that separated Jews and Gentiles.

Examine what the Jews had here compared to the Gentiles. The Gentiles were in a sorry state but God had a secret that he had kept within himself from the beginning of time. It was to be released to the Apostle Paul.

When the wall partition came down salvation for both Jews and Gentiles was possible through the blood of Jesus Christ that he shed on the cross for them.

He himself is our peace. I only wish more people knew that and would accept him as their lord and savior. Jesus Christ tore down this wall. Throughout his Earthly Life Time he came to his own and his own rejected him. He sent out his disciples to the Jews only as evidenced in Matthew 10:4-6 and 15:24. His ministry was to the Jews or to the circumcised according to Romans 15:8. Jesus once called a gentile woman a dog and just think what kind of publicity he would have got today off that statement? The me-too movement would have been all over Him. But through his blood shed on the cross he pulled down that middle wall of partition and pulled it down for good. For the good of mankind. He has made Jew and Gentile one in him.

Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

THE FATE OF BABIES AT DEATH


What happens to babies when they die young? This could include abortion but the main point I’m getting at is what happens to babies that may die of disease or other factors before they can make a confession for Christ? Perhaps the best example is that of King David when he sinned with Bathsheba. He was told that his young son would die for his iniquity. David Mourns his son greatly.

I will go to him but he will not return to me. David is saying here that he will see his son in glory. In heaven but never again on Earth. I believe this speaks to all babies that die in infancy including those of abortion. And this is the best Bible verse in all of scripture to comprehend this. I will go to him. Praise the Lord!

KNOWING THE GOSPEL


How important is it to know the gospel of Jesus Christ? Do you realize thatdr it is the gospel that saves you? Today you might want to read this gospel for yourself. It’s not in the four gospels because the 12 apostles sure couldn’t find it there. Peter, the leader heard it by way of  Jesus, rejected it and rebuked Christ over it in Matthew 16. That gospel was so important that Jesus rebuked Peter saying, Get thee behind me Satan.

Without the gospel, there is no salvation. It is found in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. THAT JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS ACCORDING  THE SCRIPTURES, THAT HE WAS BURIED, AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES. Verse 2 tells you clearly that this is the gospel that saves.

What if this is not the gospel that you are following? Well then, these next words might have an impact on you.

Catholic Myth #28 The Limbo Lie


All unsaved babies go To hell. This from the loving RCC? It was until Pope Benedick changed course. However, if Catholics read their Bible more and their Catechism less, they could have solved this long ago.David will reunite with his son in the kingdom of heaven. Be honest with yourselves. Only the devil would have a teaching like that! Get thee behind me Satan! 

PAYING YOUR WAY THROUGH PURGATORY- 1


At the time the RCC were using indulgences, they literally were paying their way out of purgatory. But then in  the changeable world of Catholicism indulgences ceased. In Acts 8 Simon the magician wanted to purchase the Holy Spirit with money? What is the difference?

Purgatory is a place of punishment but also a gift. Grace is an unmerited free gift from God. Why should Catholics go to a place where they weren’t good enough to merit heaven?Why do Catholics desire Satans lie over that of Gods truth? I’ll pick up there in Part 2.

THE FORMULA TO ETERNAL LIFE


So many people have the keys to eternal life right in the palm of their hand and they squash it. Should I be so surprised? Jesus came to his own and they rejected him! You came to the Jewish people and in effect they told him, no. Despite his miracles, signs, and feedings they weren’t impressed enough to believe in him. Jesus, when he was at the Passover, had some success as many believed in him when they saw the signs, but  Jesus did not commit himself to them because he knew all men. Why didn’t Jesus commit to them? Because they were there for the signs, feedings, and miracles. They were there for the entertainment value of Christ but whenever he had a hard teaching they left him in droves and that is found in John 6:66. Eternal life is believing in God and in Jesus Christ the one who he has sent. In Romans we learned that Jesus’ Doctrine did not come from him but from the Father. Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God and that comes from 2nd John 9. The bottom line is as the old song says, you can’t have one without the other!
