The Lord Is Conqueror

"Do not be hasty to leave his presence. Do not take a stand in an unpleasant matter, for he does whatever pleases him." (Ecclesiastes 8:3).

To use a parable: I may have an invitation to a banquet and left behind at departure time. Would quote a popular once saved... slogan and show you the ticket (certificate of baptism) and still miss the airplane (rapture) by not being present at the airport (fellowship of the Spirit).

Our communion with God according to His plumb-line is the true test of fellowship and discipleship.

Over and Above

a cosmic choice

Enoch dared to see beyond the dimension of space-time and gazed into eternity. He lived in a world that offered outlandish theories and empirical hypothesis (stories) about metaphysical realities with endless possibilities, which could have easily occupied his activities. These same stories are transcendental in the science fiction novels, movies and video games of today’s entertainment culture. The antediluvian fables according to the scientific projections were astronomical, which also included the sinister practice of genetic engineering. The evidence for this is hidden away in the historical annals (specimens and documentation) of giants and other genetic mutations at the Smithsonian Institute. And notwithstanding of societal trends: Enoch dared to believe the ancient reports and looked upward into the heavenly expanse of Jehovah-Elohim (The Lord Is God) for hope and guidance.

And so today, this world is desperately trying to distract and dazzle the populous and thereby, weary the people into a day-by-day existence. In the same manner, I could list the many faces of deception that bedazzle and subvert the glorious reality of God's wonderful presence. Oh, the marvel of looking beyond our mere existence (or dissented tales of folkloric fallacy) by accepting the gracious hand of salvation. Surely, there must be something behind the many happy faces of God's people. And Enoch dared to venture beyond the entrapments of this world and gazed into eternity. The genesis (alpha) and endless (omega) adventure.

It's time to let go of every preconceived idea, objection or misconception about the divinity and personality of Jesus, the Christ. The reality is: He's patiently waiting in the blessed assurance that victory (in His name alone) is already achieved and simply awaiting His return. "Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" (Matthew 24:30 ESV). Could the message of the Bible be more precise that so many people would ignore the many promises of God's wonderful mercy and majesty. Oh, help us to see beyond the veil and overcome the sour notes of deception. Shortly, the face of Yoga and the many other body, mind and spirit programs will reveal the morose chuckle behind the mask.

Our world is about to unleash the grim reality of eternity lost: as the mask of deception will be removed and replaced by a stronger illusional mindset. Therefore, today is our opportunity for salvation in Christ's atonement message. Our communion with God according to His plumb-line is the true test of fellowship and discipleship. And yet today, there is hardly any evidence of a victorious church and prayer meetings with people weeping for lost souls. Our modern society has rejected the gospel as a nice story that our grandparents once shared and replaced it with superficial thought and humanistic ideals. This should be the last days and then, a never-ending reality of eternity lost or found without exception. Let us re-image the beauty of a Spirit-led walk of faith by looking upward and not sideways.

The ultimate goal of the "god of this world" is to create a one-world empire. However, these plans won’t succeed unless the standard of faith (enlightened ones) are raptured away. Or succumb to false reasonings and allusions about this diabolical reign and apostate church. As for today, it would seem that our best efforts are only trying to postpone the inevitable and delay these prophesies. A sleepy or less enlightened church should expect more darkness and may enter into the tribulation hour. "For the mystery of lawlessness is already working. Only He who is now restraining him will do so until He is taken out of the way. Then the lawless one will be revealed ..." (2 Thessalonians 2:7,8 MEV). The Holy Spirit is the One that enlightens today, while exposing the false realities of the new age deception.

And as Enoch was spirited away in his day, so may we also be lifted into eternity. "Enoch walked with God, and then he was no more because God took him" (Genesis 5:24 MEV). And so, a cosmic choice of eternal (everlasting) blessings.

One step of faith as prayer changes things!

The bell-ringing of the church has been swayed by a new age deception. As the words of Jesus "come unto me" have been de-emphasized by the community of fellowship and replaced with a cause driven approach. The Christian church is becoming too cautious and distracted to receive God's help during these enthralling times.

Just the same, personal devotion through prayer, fasting and worship is now a lovely gospel song. The messianic calling and identity of God's children are suffering an identity theft by soft spoken preachers. They would portray God as a jolly fat man, so to speak. And therefore, biblical expectations are on receiving gifts of prosperity on this side of the splendid journey.

And to complete this diabolical facade, the science of bio/techno gadgets and genetics are about to explode with new inventions and discovery, which have been brewing in the caldrons of witchcraft and outer darkness. The signs are programmed into everyday society and so clearly visible that many people are blinded to its dark reality. Surely the daily news is reporting an alarming amount of unusual events as the powers and cohorts of darkness become disarrayed by a foreboding apprehension of eternity lost.

This is what
the LORD says:
- Jeremiah 17 -

5) The man who trusts in mankind, who makes human flesh his strength and turns his heart from the LORD is cursed.

7) The man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence indeed is the LORD, is blessed.
