The Return of Jesus Christ-Part 1

The Rapture

In the epistle to Titus, chapter 2 verse 13 the Apostle Paul writes, “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. This scripture gives the Christian the hope of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to receive His own. We look forward to what is known in Christian circles as, the Rapture. The word Rapture does not appear in the King James version of the Bible, but in the Latin text the word rapio appears where we would use the word rapture, which means the great “catching away” of the saints.

Are You A Genuine Christian or an Impostor?

There used to be Holy Spirit filled preachers that preached against sin and warned of the judgment to come and the hell to shun. The messages were powerful and anointed by the Holy Spirit, and God used those messages to convict the hearts of lost people. But today it seems that many claim to be Christians who I doubt even know what it really is to be a true Christian. The consensus among the lost people in today’s society is that everybody is OK and needs nothing from a god. Many are not even sure if there is a heaven or hell, but are convinced that they will go to heaven if there is one. No one will go to hell in their estimation because, as they would say, “God loves everybody and will not send a person to hell fire for eternity”. I would even go so far as to say that few of today’s professing Christians even know God or His dear Son, Jesus Christ.

What is the Cause of America’s Decline?

Since the first term of Barrack Hussein Obama’s presidency, it is obvious that America has greatly and swiftly declined spiritually. There are accompanying declinations also, but those are primarily related to political reasons and this article is not addressing anything political. The primary purpose of this writing is to take a closer look at the spiritual decline of America and see if we can understand, Biblically, what is going on. There is a great difference in the spiritual climate now as before the Obama administration took office.

What in the World is Going On?

Many are wondering if we are indeed living in the last days. No one denies that we are living in some very strange times. What is going on in our world? We have never seen anything like this in all our lives, so why now? It is not like we are engaged in a world war, but in many ways, it is causing the same national unrest. There are so many questions that seem to have no clear answer; however, let us take a closer look at some of the strange things that we are dealing with today.

The Weak & Beggarly Jesus

(Another Jesus)

In 2nd Corinthians 11:4, the Apostle Paul says, “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him”. Notice that the apostle warns in this verse of, “another Jesus”, “another Spirit”, and “another gospel”. He warns us to “well bear” with a preacher that comes preaching another Jesus, etc. To “well bear” means to proceed with caution and beware that the truth may not be found here, hence the warning to “well bear”.

Coming Boldly

This morning after my morning prayer, I was thinking, or rather meditating, about the scripture in Hebrews 4:16 that says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” The more I pondered those words, the more I began to visualize myself as a little boy running and jumping into the arms of my Daddy. I knew that he loved me and that he would catch me and hug me when I landed in his big, loving arms. I loved my Daddy and I still think of him often.

Are Mass Shootings Due to Mental Illness?

In recent years there has been a strong push by the left and liberals to do away with firearms of all kinds. Their ultimate goal is a gun-free society. Their thinking is that if there are no guns then there will be no gun violence. One of the recent Democratic Presidential candidates, Beto O’Rourke, was a proponent of a gun buy-back program. Of course, most Americans reject this draconian thinking as too far left and un-American; certainly, un-Constitutional. O’Rourke even said the government would go from door to door confiscating firearms. He lost support immediately upon that statement.

Hollywood’s Invasion on Morality in America

Since the early days of the cinema, there has been a constant watch on the film industry’s encroachment and destruction of the Moral Fiber of American culture.  America has been from the beginning, a Christian nation.  Regardless of former President Barrack Obama’s insistence that “America is no longer a Christian Nation”.  That statement struck me more as wishful thinking on his part but the truth is, there are still many Americans who regard themselves as ‘sanctified’.  They are on constant watch for blatant violations of the ‘good of the nation’ statements and/or scenes in movies and videos.
