I don’t know if I should laugh or cry right now. I thought I’d go through the entire book of Matthew, but it seems there’s enough mind boggling disciplines in Matthew 5 that I need to seriously consider.

 

Faith is dead without good works (James 2:26) and Good works are nothing without love 1 Corinthians 13

Where will you stand during the Final Judgment ?
On the left or on the right?

When Jesus returns in His glory with His angels with Him, He will sit upon His throne. All the nations will stand before Him as He separates each person as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

The sheep (righteous) at His right hand, the goats (cursed) at His left.

 To the sheep (righteous) on the right, He will say : “Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.  I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
and they will reply: 
 ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’

   To those on His left, He will say, “Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons. For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink.  I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’
and they will reply :
 ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’

And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’

“And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.” Matthew 25

AND FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD , BUT WORKS WITHOUT LOVE PROFITS YOU NOTHING

Love is 

  • Love is patient
  • kind
  • Love is not jealous
  • or boastful
  • or proud
  •  or rude
  • Love does not demand its own way
  • Love is not irritable
  • Love keeps no record of being wronged
  • Love does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out
  •  Love never gives up
  • Love never loses faith
  • Love is always hopeful
  • Love endures through every circumstance (1 Corinthians 13)
   PRAY ABOUT IT, pray at all times, on every occasion. If you ask anything according to His will, He will hear you, for the prayer of the righteous has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16, 1 John 5:14 and Eph 6:18

There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while,  So be truly glad.  1 Peter 1:6

He will not shout or break the weakest reed: Isaiah 42:1-3

Comments 7 Standard

He will not shout
    or raise his voice in public.
 He will not crush the weakest reed
    or put out a flickering candle.
    He will bring justice to all who have been wronged

Isaiah 42

 

     This verse was like a sword to me one day, surely it sliced between bone and marrow. There was no escaping or making excuses for my behavior.

     Let me explain…..

           A pair of my favorite white pants went missing at the dry cleaners- and in it’s place- were a pair of worn out white pants that looked like they were from 1980- and they were the same size….hmmmm. My husband usually picks up the dry cleaning so he mentioned the situation a few times to the staff, but they insisted we had the right pants. I decided to go in, return the wrong pants and see if they could look for mine. The woman at the counter insisted that her tickets don’t lie and angrily told me that the worn out pants I had in my hand were mine. (oh and she was the same size as me- you know I’m thinking she took my pants- I know I’m crazy! Over a pair of pants)  So anyways, the conversation got heated as she yelled about how tickets don’t lie, but what really irked me was her! And her attitude…so I gave it back to her- and said: please, don’t insult me, I know my clothes. She just about jumped over the counter and growled “don’t insult me”, so long story short- I raised my voice and wasn’t nice

 Later that day….       I went to my parents house for my mom’s birthday. I began washing dishes and called all the kids over to help dry the dishes- it was grandma’s birthday. They all came over and began to help out except for my one niece, who at the time was 10 years old. She watched as we all worked away and replied to me nonchalantly, “Oh sorry, I have too much to do, I can’t help you”.  I replied; “Really? You can’t dry 5 dishes for  your grandmother?”.  She, either ignoring me or blind to the smoking fumes coming off my head, said calmly; “Yea (pause and stare) sorry, I can’t, I just have too much to do”. She turned and sat on the couch in front of us as we busily worked away cleaning up the kitchen.  Ms. “too busy”  sat and watched us as she tapped her pencil on her chin the entire time- pretending to be Aristotle deep in thought. I was livid! I was grumbling my thoughts aloud to my helpers- well, I blew up- told her how rude and disrespectful she was and that I knew Exactly! What she was up to……….. Oh whatever- like you’re a saint-

I began to pray:  

  The day was coming to an end and super sister Christian me went to my prayer place. I began to pray, but something wasn’t right. “Lord, where are you? I feel like you are so far away.” There was silence. I didn’t feel that close presence I usually feel when I pray. “Lord, where are you? Why aren’t you listening?” I asked again. I sat in silence, wondering why I felt like something wasn’t right. Suddenly, I heard within my heart:

“look what you did today” Uhmmmm, I thought, ooooookay….yeaaaahhhh- okay Lord, the dry cleaning lady..and I heard again:

“and your niece” Ouch! I didn’t like that! So I told the Lord; “But God- I was right and they were wrong” and I heard the Lord tell me:

“It doesn’t matter who was right and who was wrong”  I replied “but I’m right, I’m right, I’m right” and the Lord responded to me again;

“what matters is that you hurt them”. Waaaaaa! That did not feel good! In fact, I didn’t like it.

I ran away, I didn’t want to admit my fault

   I said to myself; “I  think I’ll pray later and just read my bible for now.”   I sat down and opened up my bible to wherever, hoping to get a super feel good verse- I opened up to Isaiah 42:3

He will not shout or raise His voice
(what! I did this today, okay, calm down -it’s just a weird coincidence that I opened here)

He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle
(oh no! I suddenly realized I had hurt someone who was already hurting! The parents of my young niece had just separated and she was far from her father and hurting deeply.)

He will bring justice to all who have been wronged.
(oh great! Are you serious? I have to fix this mess I made? I have to say I’m sorry? I didn’t like this)

I ran away again
       I decided this was just a weird coincidence. I decided to flip to the New Testament to find a feel good parable to ponder or some other good words for the day. I flipped over to the New Testament and guess what I landed on? Matthew 12:19, I’m thinking – this is going to be good- and I read………

He will not fight or shout or raise his voice in public
(Whaaaat! For real? Are you kidding me?)

He will not crush the weakest reed

or put out a flickering candle

(great!, just great! I can’t run away from this. I need to face this if I want to get right with the Lord)

He will cause justice to be victorious.

  

No more running away, I had to acknowledge what I had done
 I took my humbled self back to my prayer time and told the Lord that was not real happy about this or what I did , but I will be obedient and apologized. Then the Holy Spirit reminded me : “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you,  leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.”

I thought to myself: Please tell me I heard that wrong….. that had to be in my brain, so I began to pray again and heard it again… Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you,  leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift

    So I had to humble my obnoxious self and say I was sorry to the people!!!!!!! Now for sure I’m an alien – not of this world- but that’s my story. While I’m embarrassing myself, Ill share another verse that would smack me in the face for about 10 years in a row until I finally learned to behave. It was Psalm 52:1-3

Why do you boast about your crimes, great warrior?
    Don’t you realize God’s justice continues forever?
(Uhhmmmm, yes, I did just boast about my obnoxious self)

….Your tongue cuts like a sharp razor;
(oh dear, God is watching me again. Im in big trouble! Big trouble!)

………. You love evil more than good
(oh no! I do! This is not good!)

 Thank God!  The Lord changes me day by day and I’m not who I used to be- “ Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ”  Sometimes I wonder if rudeness is contagious like the yeast of the Pharisees – wickedness spreads like wildfire. It’s so easy to fall off track in this world full of sin and wickedness. I’ve heard people say S.Florida has the rudest city in the US- and certainly I’ve run into a few this week. I guess at times, I put up a barrier to tolerate some and in doing so, I can become rude and hurtful too.

“anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you,  leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

“When you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.

He will not shout
    or raise his voice in public.
 He will not crush the weakest reed
    or put out a flickering candle.
    He will bring justice to all who have been wronged

Isaiah 42, Matthew 12

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
 Point out anything in me that offends you,
    and lead me along the path of everlasting life

Jesus is here!!!! The Messiah is here on earth! With wonders, signs, miracles, he has come to bring peace !…………………………and…blasphemy?

Sound the Alarm!
Tell your children!
Warn those around you!

Pay attention reader, the day will come when you will hear this, but heed this warning:

  • Believe it not! And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things mark 13:21-23
  • Believe it not! Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:26
  • Do not go after them, nor follow them! And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. Luke 17:22-24
  • Let no man deceive you! That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.2 Thessalonians 2:3

Cling to the Truth- let no man deceive you
 
   If you heard of a worldwide announcement that the Messiah, Jesus Christ, Son of Mary had come to earth…would you believe it? Do you know the scriptures well enough to discern the truth from Satan’s lies? What if you saw this Jesus, who claimed to be the son of Mary doing great miracles, signs and wonders? Would that convince you? We are told in the book of Revelation that a false prophet will arise and he will come with great signs and wonders, he will bring fire down from heaven – just like the prophet Elijah. He will know the scripture –better than you and, if it were possible, even deceive the elect.

 “Peace! Security!”
He will shout out and proclaim over the earth.
You are starting to wonder….is it Him?

    We are told in Revelation that this false prophet will have horns as a lamb and will have words of the dragon coming out of his mouth. From this verse we know that he will look like a lamb– and who is the lamb of God? It’s Jesus! So from the outward appearance, he will look like Jesus, act like Jesus, doing great signs, wonders, telling the World he has come to bring in his kingdom of peace. He will honor the 1st beast, which we call the antichrist, the man of lawlessness and both will have their power from the dragon, who is called satan, the devil, that old serpent. His words are like a dragon, the scripture tells us, and from the scripture we know all his power and authority is given to him from the dragon –serpent, the devil.(Revelation 13:1, 4:7, 13:12, 12:9, 20:2)

Facts you must cling to in these last days so you will not be deceived:

Hold on to these truths –

  • Jesus is the Son of God
  • Jesus died on the cross and rose again

Remember these also in the days ahead:

  • God does not lie
  • Satan is the father of ALL lies
  • Jesus is the Truth.  “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
  • God does not promote lying under any circumstance
  • Every word of the bible is God breathed and inspired by the Holy Spirit- there are no mistakes with the Holy Spirit of God

How is Jesus Coming Back???  (Revelation 19:9-12 Matthew 24:30 Matthew 26:64.Mark 13:26 Mark 14:62 2 Peter 3:10 1 Thes.4;16-17 Revelation 1:7  Matthew 24:43-44)

 Then the sign shall appear of the Son of man in heaven, then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  He will come in the clouds of heaven with great power and glory. And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

   When he comes on the clouds, every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen  And this day will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. For the Lord himself descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. And you must also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him .

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

The dragon, the beast and the false prophet-  Could you be fooled ?

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” Revelation 16:13-16

The False Prophet and the 1st beast “antichrist” are powered by Satan, the great deceiver, the dragon, that old serpent. Just as he deceived Eve in the Garden, he is coming in full force to deceive the whole world.  We know Jesus, the real Jesus, is coming back. Don’t be fooled by what is about to come to the earth. Let me tell you what to expect to hear – the deceiving and twisting lies – so you won’t be fooled when you hear the blasphemy. You must study the scriptures so you don’t fall into deception, the scriptures says – they will be deceitful –almost fooling the Elect. Matthew 24:24 “if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

In Revelation 13:11 we are introduced to the 2nd beast: it has horns of a lamb and words of the dragon, he  looks holymaybe even impersonating Jesus and he does great miracles,  bringing fire down from the sky, just like the prophet Elijah in 2 Kings 1. “He exerciseth all the power of the first beast and make the entire world worship the first beast whose deadly wound was healed.” Still in revelation, we are told he will do great wonders in the sight of all men and will deceive them that dwell on the earth with the miracles he does “in the sight of the beast”. He will make them create and image to this beast and he will have the power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. He will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man”

The Haddith, which are Islamic writings and beliefs that correspond and back up the Quran , teaches that Jesus is coming back as an end time prophet to bring peace the World. Their scripture says that he is the Son of Mary, but that he was never crucified and he is not the son of God, instead that was only deceit from Allah to fool people. Their prophet Jesus (aka Isa) seems to almost match the false prophet we are warned about in Revelation. If this happens to be true, this is going to be very confusing to many- especially Christians who don’t know the scripture. We all know He is coming back….but so few know the details written in scripture warning us.

Now, we really don’t know – but wow- they really sound similar. The Islamic scripture teaches there will be a world leader and a messiah- a prophet. Our scripture, inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, warns us of a lawless man who rules over all and by his side is a false prophet. The two work together and they are given power and authority from the Satan. Another interesting coincidence is that one will have more power or authority than the other. In the Quran, they learn that the prophet Jesus will be asked to pray but will say he is not worthy and will give authority over to the leader. In Revelation we are told the false prophet works his wonders only when he is near the other false leader and they two work together, but one seems to have more authority than the other. See, the 1st beast or the antichrist can work alone if needed, but the false prophet can only work with him.

You won’t know the truth unless you know the scripture – and at that time –who knows- our government may begin destroying bibles so no one will know the truth. The false prophet will work with great authority, signs, wonders, miracles and he will twist and reason all scripture trying to deceive the whole world.

If the beast and the false prophet are the same “messiah” the Quran talks about, this is what we can expect:

Could the Islamic Messiah for end times be the Antichrist we have been warned of? (fyi for those of you who don’t use the word antichrist or want to argue about using that term here are other bible names we can substitute: the beast, the abomination that causes desolation, the man of lawlessness, the little horn, the oppressor- and there are more)

  • He will claim : “Peace and Security”
  • He will be well loved and charismatic, filled with charm, captivating the world.
  • His words sound like words of love, but it’s deceiving charm
  • He will claim he is a descendant of Muhammad
  • He will say he is the redeemer the world has been waiting for and he came to save
  • Assigned by Allah, claiming he is the messiah they have been waiting for
  • He is a judge and has come to bring justice
  • He will claim that oppression and deceit are things of the past
  • He will usher in the one world government under his “righteous” rule
  • He will rule for 7 years
  • He will come to restore the “one true religion”
  • He will lead an army “cataclysmic battle” against his enemy to be destroyed in Jerusalem

Could the Jesus the Islamic faith describes be the False Prophet we are warned of?

  • He will call himself the prophet Jesus or Isa, the son of Mary
  • He will come down from heaven
  • He will lead the prayers to Allah, but will hand them over because he claims he is not qualified to lead the prayers
  • He will arrive with the Mahdi- beast or ruler listed above-
  • They will compliment each other and work wonders side by side and “wipe away oppression”

Wow! This ties almost exactly into Revelation’s warning of the False prophet and the lawless one, aka antichrist, aka first beast.

The Lies they will tell the World, which are already written in their books:

  • He will say Jesus is a Muslim
    He will claim he was never crucified and claim to fix scriptures mistakes
    He will deny that He is God’s son and say he was only a prophet
    He is expected to defeat the antichrist or the false messiah coming to earth
    He will claim he is the son of Mary, and describe is as the Christians know in scripture
    He will claim he is the only way along the path
    He will say that Allah is his lord and all must worship him, for this is the right path
    He will descend and join the Mahdi in a war, dressed in yellow robes
    He will slay the antichrist and everyone from the “people of the book” (jews and Christians)
    He will break the cross and kill the Jews
    He will say he is the Jesus of the bible, but that he taught Islam
    He will know and explain all the scriptures very well

Extra thoughts and ponderings…………………..

In revelation 11, the two witnesses come forth and witness to the world. The beast out of the pit kills them. Recently when I read this, two things came to mind –maybe far fetched ,but I’m stepping outside my box of teachings, courses and books and just trying to see things differently …

1- Whose side is the pope on? The prophecy of St. Malacy about the last pope – I’ve heard different theories on this and who he fights for is unknown, we know he will pasture his sheep through the tribulations, but who his sheep are is unclear. I could see him as one of the ones to dislike these two witnesses. Interesting enough, the first pope was Peter, the last one is Peter. I can just see the 2 witnesses convicting –not only the world of their sins, but also the churches, and I can almost see them speaking out against the idols put before God- commanding all the statues of saints and their worship to be knocked down. This is going to infuriate some church goers- I don’t know if the pope and the two witnesses are really going to see eye to eye on things. We imagine them to be going after the Muslim teaching, but they will convict everyone – churches, Christians, those living in sin, wrong teaching, religious spirits, adultery, homosexuality, witchcraft, – everyone who hears will be convicted of sin in their life- some will convert, yet others will hate them.
2- Harvest and Harvest: not relevant for post, but oh well…  So , out there again, as I was reading about the feasts of the old testament, I believe there are clues to the rapture hidden in the feast of harvest (Ex23:16) –which is the first harvest of first fruits and the feast of ingathering which is the second ingathering at the end of season. Sounds like Revelation 19 and that sickle going out at the end. Could this prove an early rapture and then another one at the very end? Oh brother, I got some of you really wound up.


Be ready, be alert and prepare yourself for the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He is the Way, the Truth and Life. No man goes to the Father expect through Him. That is yea and Amen in Christ Jesus.
