Twisting the Bible

Now that I have laid out some of the evidence that this massive solar flare is coming and will probably kill a billion people, I would love to give you more… but …we have a problem.

Most of you won’t believe that you have anything to be concerned about because, you’ve been taught a twisted interpretation of the Bible. Some of you have been taught a sugar-coated, prosperity doctrine that says that God would never allow anything bad to happen while you’re around. Others have been taught a replacement theology that says that everything with the word ‘Israel’ in it is about them. And, even more of us have been told to hush and go back to sleep as they sing lullabies of wealth and the good life.

Unfortunately, all of that is a deadly deception, and we must unravel these deceptions so that you can see the disaster that is rolling down on us. If you are a victim of deception, the truth will set you free – but, it won’t make you happy.

I wish that it was the other way around. I wish that the truth did make us happy. But, since the truth includes the knowledge of our own failings, our sinfulness and the corruption that surrounds us, we are not going to enjoy having our eyes opened.

I certainly haven’t been enjoying any of this, myself.

But, there is a joy in the truth, in that we know that God is good, and He is coming back. My hope is that you’ll be around to see His return. However, your eyes need to be opened, if you are to have any chance at that.

So, let’s untangle the lies that blind.

The Lies That Bind

Without a clear direction by God, we have no hope of surviving what is coming. And, we cannot get direction from God, if we cannot hear or see what He is telling us. In fact, surviving the horrors that are coming will take a miracle, and we cannot expect miracles if we are not truly resting in His Word.

How can we say that we truly love God, if we twist His words?

I am shocked and appalled at the willingness of our brothers and sisters to take the words of God and try to make them say something that they do not. This evidence of pride and a lack of love for God is a true abomination, and it grieves me terribly to see it.

Humble yourself before God and seek His word at His mouth. Do NOT turn to your own understanding. You must love Him and cherish Him with all of your being. Only then will you have ANY hope of surviving to serve Him in the dark and terrible future that is coming.

My hope is that I will see all of you on the other side of the first series of disasters that comes – and that we will work together to serve God in whatever He calls us to do.

Twisting The Words Of God Is Heresy

Please understand that twisting the words of God will do more that put you in danger of Ezekiel’s Fire. It will also place you in the path of judgment. If God was willing to cast off the people of Israel for disobedience…

…what do you think God will do to us?

And yes, twisting the words of God is a true form of disobedience. However, some forms of twisting are worse than others. Some of it is true heresy, and heresy is common – as well as something that we are all vulnerable to.

A Little History Of Heresy

Heresy is nothing new. Even just a few years after the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, heretics were attempting to redefine His message. We had all kinds of evil mischief going on, and it threatened to tear the church apart.

In fact, it DID tear apart the church. But, those who revered the words of God were unmoved by these heresies – which is why the church exists today. But, even though heresy is not new, there is something different about the heresies that we struggle with now.

Have you noticed that so many heretical ideas and thoughts have their roots in the 1800s?

19th Century Evil

I have. And, it’s not just heresy that has its ugly beginning in the 19th century:

  • Karl Marx, never reached the 20th century, but we struggle with his Socialism and Communism today.
  • Charles Darwin, the fool and father of the THEORY of evolution, died in 1882. And, his idiocy still does tremendous harm, everywhere in the world.
  • Utilitarianism redefined the idea of ethics in the late 18th century, and it is a guiding principle of the psychopath.
  • The Illuminati consolidated its hold on Freemasonry in the 1800s and went on to bend that organization to its will. And, both of those vile organizations are preparing to introduce the world to the Antichrist.

I could go on and on about the secular foolishness spawned by the 1800s, but I’ll stop here, because I’m more interested in religious foolishness.

Religious Movements

Not all of the following religious movements are foolishness. But, all of the following have their roots in the 1800s:

  • Dispensationalism
  • Charismatic Movement
  • Seventh Day Adventism
  • Jehovah’s Witnesses
  • Christian Science
  • The Bahai
  • Landmarkism
  • Reform and Conservative Judaism
  • New Apostolic Church
  • Salvation Army
  • Ordo Templi Orientis
  • Plymouth Brethren
  • Mormonism
  • Millerism
  • Christian Israelite Church
  • Modern Theosophy

THAT is just the stuff that I could think of off the top of my head, and some of it isn’t heresy. Others ARE heretical, and a few are the purest expressions of evil. No, the above is a list of ‘religious movements’ that had their origins in the 1800s.

As much as I would love to analyze the origins of such religious movements, I will resist the urge. At this moment, I just want to point out that a truly massive number of religious movements sprang out of the 19th century, and with it came a massive amount of heresy.

How did all of this happen?

The industrial printing press.

The Printing Press

The steam-powered printing press made newspapers and books affordable, so people read them. News and new books were reaching the average person. The Age of Enlightenment had escaped the ivory tower and grabbed a hold of the man – and woman – on the street.

Unfortunately, many of the ‘Christian Books’ being printed, were offering corrupted views of the Bible. All kinds of neo-Christian ideas were being gobbled up by society, spawning all kinds of movements.

Even those books that contained scriptural ideas were causing trouble.

Why?

Because people weren’t reading their Bible and relying on the Holy Spirit to guide them. Even though these books were ABOUT the Bible, they WERE NOT the Bible.

My namesake – John the Apostle – had something to say about that:

These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

1 John 2:26-27

With the coming of mass-produced commentaries, people felt that they didn’t need the Holy Spirit, anymore. They had books to explain everything that they ‘needed to know’. A habit of ignoring the direction of the Holy Spirit will never end well. And indeed, it hasn’t.

So, as I talk about those that twist the Bible, remember that much of the root of this ‘Bible twisting’ comes from the 1800s and the rise of the industrial printing press.

We Are The Problem

When I first wrote about the damage caused by the advent of the steam-powered printing press, someone wrote to agree with my point about technology and the printing press – and said:

But the tech itself is not bad; it’s the leverage

All that I can say is well said – very well said. Technology isn’t the problem. WE are the problem. All that technology has done is act as a lever to magnify the efforts of our sinful nature. Technology is the lever, and it is our hand wielding this lever.

Furthermore, I see that this lever has been used to pry us away from the Holy Spirit. We have quenched the Spirit, and that has left us vulnerable to foolish doctrines that have led some pastors to preach damnable heresy.

The Holy Spirit Has Left the Building

My background is about as hardcore Independent Baptist as you can get. In fact, some of us were so Calvinist that even John Calvin wouldn’t have found a place in our midst.

And, those Southern Baptists?

Dangerous liberals.

I come from a background that is so rigid and cold, that we are rendered useless. God sticks such as I was, off in a corner – where we can’t cause too much trouble – and uses others for His work.

If your devotion to God is not mixed with true love, then you are a cold, near-death Christian. And, I spent a lot of time near-death, so I know whereof I speak.

Intellectual Analysis Doesn’t Work

However, I wasn’t satisfied in my corner and about thirty years ago began reading my Bible. I had read it before, but what I had been doing was taking out my microscope and subjecting the words of God to intellectual analysis.

And, I can tell you that an intellectual analysis of the Bible will NEVER work. It will lead you off into all kinds of ideas that are not true – ideas that God did not intend for you.

Why?

The Bible Is Meant To Be READ

Because the Bible was meant to be read. You’re supposed ask God for direction, submit yourself to the Holy Spirit, and then drink in His words for YOU. Do that long enough, and the Bible will make sense.

I started doing that thirty years ago, and quickly ran into trouble. My soul was being laid bare, and it wasn’t a pretty sight. And, this verse kept hammering away at me:

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Matthew 7:20

That verse was painful to read, because I had no fruit. All that I had was intellectual knowledge – and proud of it too. And, God really, really HATES pride. God calls pride an abomination.

Reading my Bible turned my life upside down. It opened my eyes, and I could never go back to what I was. And, years of reading the Bible, cover-to-cover, has deepened my understanding of God and His intentions – something that a library of commentaries could never have done.

Reading my Bible all the way through – cover to cover, again and again – is truly the only way that I am able to have ANYTHING to say about what God wants you to know.

The Bible Will Humble You

However, there is a ‘problem’ with depending on the Holy Spirit for guidance. It takes time, and we find ourselves having to say things like:

I don’t know

or:

I’m not sure

I’m really a lot like you. I do NOT like to say that there is something that I don’t understand, that I cannot understand. It’s a humbling experience, and I hate humbling experiences. I am, at heart, a very proud man.

Pride Is An Abomination To God

But, God hates pride, and there’s another verse that always takes a whack at me, every time I read it:

Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

Proverbs 16:5

Pride is an abomination to God, and we all are guilty of it – myself, more than most. Instead of submitting ourselves in abject humility to the Holy Spirit, we have turned our back on Him and looked to our own intellect. And, when you turn your back on the Holy Spirit…

…well, He leaves.

And, when the Holy Spirit leaves a church, heresy fills the void that He leaves behind.

Stop The Commentaries, And Grow Up

Please, set aside your commentaries. Burn them, if you have to. They aren’t going to give you what you need, right now – because, we are in desperate need of the Holy Spirit, if we are to survive what is coming.

Now, I’m not saying that commentaries, by themselves, are bad. In fact, what I am writing here is a ‘commentary’. I also know that some of you were led to the Lord by reading a book that laid out the gospel in a way that made sense for the very first time.

Much good has come from those who have written books to help you understand the Bible. So, I get that. And, again, I fully realize that I’m writing a ‘commentary’, right now.

But, there comes a time when you need to stop being a child, and step forward into spiritual adulthood. If you need a commentary to understand the Bible, you are a child – and therefore vulnerable to heresy and the events that are descending upon us.

This is important, so let me say it again. If you need a commentary to understand the Bible…

…then you are spiritually a child.

The Holy Spirit Has Left

But, in reality, our situation is far, far worse than mere ‘spiritually stunted growth’. When Paul was speaking to the Thessalonians about the Antichrist, he said this:

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7

It is clear to me that, since the 1800s, we have denied the Holy Spirit for so long that He’s left the building. We have quenched the Holy Spirit for so long, that He’s hard to find in any group of ‘Christians’ in America or Europe.

When was the last time that your pastor talked about sin?

My guess is that he has NEVER talked about sin. But, maybe you’re lucky to have a pastor who talks about it often. I certainly hope so.

Israel and the Last Days

Long-time Omega Shock readers know that I am NOT a Dispensationalist. In fact, I didn’t really understand what dispensationalism was, until a friend ambushed me one day in church – demanding to know if I followed such an idea.

In fact, I’m not sure what ‘ism’ that I do ‘follow’. A friend once called me a Biblicist, and I was confused by that, because I thought that all Christians should be ‘Biblicists’. Not long ago, I heard someone go through all the -isms and -ists and ended his discussion with something that he called classical premillennialism.

His description sounded pretty good, so I guess that’s me:

Classical Premillennialist

However, for some strange reason, non-dispensationalists seem to be almost always anti-Israel. And, I am NOT anti-Israel.

Israel

People find it strange that a non-dispensationalist – like myself – would support Israel as much as I do. I’ve always been surprised by that reaction, because you really only need to understand one of two things to support Israel:

  • History
  • The Bible

If you know the true history of the Arab-Israeli conflict, you will be a die-hard supporter of Israel. If I showed you everything that I know about Israel, you would become an absolute fanatic. In fact, many people who have despised Israel, became supporters after just one trip to what they called ‘Occupied Palestine’.

You Would Be Ashamed To Be Anti-Israel

Israel really is the most abused and bullied country in the world. If you are anti-Israel, you would hang your head in absolute shame, if you knew how unfair your attitude was.

Seriously, there is no absolute way that you could be anti-Israel, after seeing the truth about what has really been happening in the Middle East. I lived there for fifteen years and know EXACTLY what I am talking about.

Think of me as an eye-witness, because that is EXACTLY what I am.

The Bible Is Pro-Israel

But, if you have the Bible, you don’t need to know very much history, to support Israel – because then you would see God’s hand at work, to place the people of Israel in the Land of Israel.

However, I see a ‘BUT’ in the minds of you that aren’t so sure, so let me act on your behalf and pose your question, here:

But, doesn’t God require the People of Israel to become righteous, before they return to the Land of Israel?

God Cleanses Israel AFTER They Return

I’m going to shock you with this answer, so I hope that you’re sitting down. Here’s the answer:

God said that He would cleanse the People of Israel, AFTER they returned to the Land of Israel.

If the shock of that statement was too much for you, we can wait until you’ve had time to catch your breath. In fact, while you do that, let’s actually look at what the Bible says.

Here is what God said through the prophet Ezekiel:

For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Ezekiel 36:24-25

My hope is that you understand the word ‘then’  – because THAT word should tell you everything that you need to know. Only AFTER the people of Israel enter the Land of Israel would God cleanse them.

But, some have said that the original Hebrew doesn’t actually say ‘then’. Okay, so look at all chapters and verses in the Bible that speak of the spiritual salvation of Israel. If you need a bunch of passages to look at, go here:

www.ezekiel36-39.com

That site is currently in rough-draft form, but it certainly will give you a wealth of examples of WHERE the children of Jacob will be WHEN they are saved.

Where will they be?

IN the Land of Israel.

Let me take you back to one of the three foundational passages for this book – Zechariah 12:4:

In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

Zechariah 12:4

When you read the rest of the chapter, which speaks about that moment in time, you come to this:

In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

 – Zechariah 12:8-11

Think about that for a second.

Where is all of this happening?

In Jerusalem.

Jerusalem, Ohio?

NO! Of course not! Jerusalem, ISRAEL!

Were these people saved BEFORE they came to Jerusalem?

Of course not. When the Bible says that God will pour…

…upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him,…

They are speaking of the recognition of Jesus Christ as their Messiah, M’shiach, Lord and Savior. And, when God said ‘look upon me’, that word ‘look’ is not visible sight. I go into more detail on this when I talk about why Israel must be saved BEFORE the Tribulation. But for now, let me just say that the word ‘look’ is הביט (pronounced hee’beet) and not ‘see’ – ראה (pronounced ra’ah).

The distinction is important, because they will not look upon Him physically. They will look upon Him spiritually – just as we did, when we were saved.

So, it is against the word of God to proclaim that the physical descendants of Jacob must be spiritually saved before they come into the Land of Israel. It is the opposite that is true. To put it more simply:

God will first bring Israel into the Land of Israel, and only THEN will He save them.

Why Are You So Impatient?

But, why hasn’t God cleansed them yet?

Ah, I see that you are impatient, and I understand that. But, God doesn’t work according to OUR timetable. He works according to HIS.

Please also understand that God has a thing or two to do with the rest of the world, before healing Israel of her sin. Also, if you read Ezekiel 36, Ezekiel 37, Ezekiel 38 and Ezekiel 39 together, in one sitting, you will realize that it is a tetrada group of four parts that make up a whole.

I called it The Ezekiel Tetrad, and created a website for the purpose of describing that tetrad – as well as the other places in the Bible that describe Israel’s salvation. I mentioned that website, above. But, it bears repeating:

www.ezekiel36-39.com

The Israel Of God

But wait, I thought that WE were the Israel of God?

Yes AND no.

Please remember that Paul describes us as the ‘wild olive branches’ and describes the physical children of Jacob as the ‘natural olive branches’.

Here is the passage from Romans 11:

For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

Romans 11:24-29

Actually read ALL of Romans 11. If you can read all of Romans 11, and claim that the Jews are not going to return to God… in the way that Ezekiel 36 describes …well, I would have to wonder about how you can be so deaf to the Holy Spirit.

Furthermore, Paul speaks of God as loving the Jewish people. And, it is a dangerous thing to despise that which God loves.

The Jews Really Are The People Of Israel

But wait, are the Jews REALLY the People of Israel?

Here is where I throw up my hands in despair and cry out in frustration.

(sigh)

Okay, first of all, you need to show me in the Bible the place where God demands a ‘DNA test’ to establish ‘Israelness’. But, there HAVE been DNA tests done, and they HAVE found a link that connects the Jews to their common Israeli origin. So, you have your ‘DNA test’, if you need it.

The Other Tribes

But, what about the OTHER ten tribes?

Well, the Bible has an answer for you:

Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.

And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?

Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

Ezekiel 37:16-19

Ezekiel 37 goes on to reinforce Ezekiel 36 by showing how they will return to the Land of Israel and not be two nations, and that they will be redeemed – that David, His servant would rule over them.

Again, if you can read that and be anti-Zionism, then I have to wonder at why you are so deaf to the Holy Spirit. I really do.

Those Wicked-Evil-Rotten Jews

But… but… aren’t the Jews wicked evil rotten people trying to take over the world, like the Rothschilds?

Ah yes. The principle of being too wicked to be saved. I love that one. The verse for that one is…

…is…

NOWHERE IN THE BIBLE!

Look, in God’s eyes, there are only two groups of people:

  • Christians

You weren’t a Christian before you were saved, so you were a pagan. The Jews ARE NOT Christian, so they are pagans.

Yes, you heard that right.

Jews are Pagans.

I’ll wait while you calm down a bit. If you want, we could play a bit of soothing music.

Now, where were we… ah yes.

Some Truth About Salvation

Look, you need to get something straight. We were all Satanists before we were saved. Maybe we weren’t sacrificing babies to Moloch – although you did, if you had an abortion – but we were all in alliance with Satan before God dragged us off to become followers of His Son.

Would you believe that even Hitler could have been saved?

Yes, that’s right. You could murder millions of people and have a funny mustache, and you would not be too wicked for salvation.

Seriously folks. Get a grip.

Why The Jews Don’t Like Us

But, wait, why don’t the Jews like us?

Because they aren’t saved, and they feel threatened by the fact that we all want them to become just like us. Imagine yourself in their shoes.

How would YOU like it if Mormons targeted your kids every day, trying to turn them into ‘Latter Day Saints’?

In fact, the Jews have felt so threatened by this, that the Rabbis for two thousand years have preached that to convert to Christianity is to lose your soul.

When I was living in Israel, I even heard one Jewish friend tell the joke that 95% of the message of Judaism is: The Jews Aren’t Christian. Two thousand years of cultural and religious programming is going to be difficult to overcome – no, impossible – without a miracle. Of course, salvation is always a miracle, from God who is a God of miracles.

Between Being Saved And Being Unsaved

So, if your feelings are hurt by Jewish rejection and hostility towards Christianity, you really need to calm down and understand the difference between being saved and being unsaved. Unsaved people will never really like you.

If you can’t handle that, then maybe you don’t know what it means to be a Christian.

Why You MUST Get This Right

Now, you are probably wondering why I’ve taken more than a couple thousand words to get to this point. So, here it is:

You Will Be In Serious Trouble If You Get The Meaning Of Israel Wrong

Israel is THE KEY to the Last Days, and it will also mark the beginning of the rise of the Antichrist and The Beast. If you don’t understand Israel and – more importantly – Jerusalem, you will be blind to what is coming. And, blindness is a deadly, deadly thing.

Resisting God

In fact, there is something that is even worse than all of that.

If you Get Israel Wrong, you run the risk of opposing God in the work that HE is doing. I have run into far too many readers who have left comments that were unfair towards Israel and dismissive of Israel’s prospect for salvation in the future.

This is very, very dangerous. God has promised salvation for Israel, and that day has already arrived – as thousands of Israeli Jews have already accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. But, if you are against what God is doing, then God will be against YOU.

Please understand that being the focus of God’s anger is extremely dangerous. No, it’s worse than dangerous.

It’s deadly.

You Must Repent

If you have found yourself to be against God’s work in the Land of Israel and with the People of Israel…

You MUST REPENT of this sin before it is too late.

Please, brothers and sisters in Christ, you MUST REPENT.

Dispensationalists And Non-Dispensationalists

Up to this point, I’ve been speaking as if there are only two kinds of Christians:

  • Dispensationalists
  • Non-Dispensationalists

But, for the most part, it’s true. It’s as if Christianity were split in two, with a very tiny, tiny group in-between. The Dispensationalists think that Gog and Magog and the Salvation of Israel will come AFTER the Rapture. And, the Non-Dispensationalists don’t know where we are in the Last Days, because they don’t understand Israel

And, NEITHER SIDE is reading their Bible with eyes that are able to see.

In Luke 21, Jesus spoke of a sign that would be extremely visible and important. This sign was first in a list of signs that indicated that the Last Days had begun. And, if you saw just ONE of those signs, you knew would know that you were in the LAST DAYS. Furthermore, deep down, you know that we are in the Last Days. You know it, or you wouldn’t be reading this.

What was/is the most visible sign of the Last Days that Jesus spoke of?

Right, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is THE SIGN that the Last Days have ALREADY started. Here’s the verse:

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Luke 21:24

Please, everyone, you need to understand that the ‘Times of the Gentiles’ were fulfilled on June 7th, 1967. Since you are probably a gentile – i.e., not Jewish – you are probably a little uncomfortable about that. But, this is Jesus speaking, and there are eternal consequences for rejecting the words of Jesus.

Now, notice that when Jesus described the Last Days, He gave a list of events that would happen. The capture of Jerusalem by the Jews was one of those items in that list. Jesus then wrapped up that list with an important statement:

So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

 – Luke 21:31-32

We can argue all day about how long a generation is, but please stop to think that we are almost 50 years into that generation. There can’t be very much time left.

The Temple Mount

But… But… there’s that Dome of the Rock… the Jews don’t control the Temple Mount!

Okay, you’re saying that because you think that the existence of a Muslim building on the place where the First and Second Temple stood… You think that this is proof that the Jews do not control the ancient city of Jerusalem.

I get that. So let me ask you a question:

How do I know that my apartment building, here in Taipei, is under the authority of the Taiwanese people?

Well, if I commit a crime in my apartment, Taiwanese police knock on my door, take me to a Taiwanese police station and put me in front of a Taiwanese judge. The judge looks at the evidence to see if I have violated Taiwanese law. If I’m declared guilty, I go to a Taiwanese prison.

Does it matter if Beijing claims that Taiwan is a part of China?

(And yes, Beijing DOES claim
that Taiwan is a part of China.
)

The answer is absolutely NO. And, most Taiwanese would add some really bad language to emphasize the point. Every square inch of Taiwan is governed by Taiwan law, and you go to a Taiwanese jail if you violate any of it.

So, let me show you a picture:

Israeli police officers walk in front of the Dome of the Rock, on the Temple Mount. March 17, 2010. (photo by REUTERS/Baz Ratner)

Those three guys in the foreground are Israeli police officers. If you commit a crime on the Temple Mount, you are taken by Israeli police, to an Israeli police station and put before an Israeli judge. The Israeli judge will examine the evidence to see if you have violated Israeli law. If you are guilty, you will go to an Israeli prison.

If that’s not enough evidence for you, then you are dumber than a box of rocks AND a bag of hammers. Seriously, folks, it doesn’t get more obvious.

Every square inch of Jerusalem is governed by Israeli law, and you go to prison if you violate any of it – just like Taiwan, America or anywhere else in the world.

The Temple

B-b-but there’s no TEMPLE THERE!?!?!

First of all, Israel is a secular country.

Are you sure that secular Israelis – which are the majority of Israel – actually WANT a real-life temple, with real-life sacrfices?

Believe it or not, but there is a cultural civil war going on in Israel today, between secular Jews and religious Jews. The orthodox and ultra-orthodox Jews want Israel to be a theocracy, and secular Jews DO NOT.

Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are just an hour apart by car, but there is a two thousand year cultural and religious divide that separates the two of them. But, that’s a discussion for another time.

Resisting God

As I said earlier, if you make the same claims that anti-Zionists do, then you are resisting the work that God is doing – as He fulfills the prophecy in Ezekiel 36. If you stand against God, as He executes His plans for the Last Days, then there is trouble ahead for you.

Please, if you have found yourself in opposition to God, I am begging you to repent before it is too late. There is no hope for survival, for any who resist God in the coming days.

We must walk WITH God if there is to be any hope for us.

Loving God

After looking at what I’ve said up to this point, I wondered about what I should say next. The world is full of examples of how NOT to do something. In fact, my own life is full of examples of foolishness and bad behavior. Just ask my poor, long-suffering wife.

Do You Love God?

I love my wife. There is no person, being or thing that I love more – except God. In fact, I tell everyone that my wife is the second-best thing that has EVER happened to me.

And, when you love someone that much, what that person wants… that person gets. (And yes, I am lucky to be married to a woman who is wise with money.)

Is that how you feel about God?

If God wants something from you…

Are you going to give it to Him?

And, there is one thing that He wants more than any other:

Your Love And Obedience

He wants you to love and obey Him. And, He wants that because it is good for you – not because it is good for Him. In fact, you will not escape the evil plans of Satan, unless you love and obey God more than anything – or anyone – else.

You Must Love And Obey God

Please, let me emphasize this:

IF you do not love and obey God with every fiber of your being, you will NOT escape what is coming.

You MUST love and obey God. YOU MUST.

And… when you love and obey someone that much …what they say, what they write and how they write is fantastically important. In fact, how they are doing and what they are doing are of consuming interest.

If they are sad, you are sad. If they are happy, you are happy. If they want to go somewhere, you will find yourself wanting the same thing.

God is perfect, and you will NEVER need to worry that what He wants will be too much for you. His love is perfect and will NEVER betray you. You will NEVER find yourself regretting ANYTHING that He tells you to do.

So, why aren’t you reading his letters to you?

Your spiritual inbox is full of letters from God, and it’s sitting on your desk. And yes, I really do mean the Bible.

Do you treasure what it says?

We are in the most dangerous time in the history of mankind. Satan has prepared layer upon layer of deception, and YOU are the target. And your ONLY defense is the words of God, in partnership with the Holy Spirit.

Of course, that only works for children of God – those of you who have accepted the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. For those of you who don’t and won’t… there is no other hope for you.

Accept Jesus As Your Lord And Savior

Please, acknowledge your sins and repent of them. Acknowledge the fact that you are not able to redeem yourself. Acknowledge the fact that you will never be free of your faults and sinful behavior without God. So, confess your sins and acknowledge your inability to do anything for them.

Then accept Jesus as God, who took on the form of a man. Accept Him as One who died to give you Life, who loves you more than even His own creation. Accept His death in place of your own. And accept His forgiveness of you.

God bless you brother or sister, if you have done that.

Now, go and read His love letter that we call The Bible.
