The New Testament Church Missions - The Dog Has FleasMissions

When the latter part of church age began in the 20th century, the churches began to become very materialistic with their massive ornate buildings.  

The tithes increasingly went towards supporting the church, and thus, the missions support as a consequence dwindled.

Now, if we are alive, and on this earth, it can be said of us that we are on a journey. Traveling

This journey has a beginning somewhere and this journey will end up somewhere.

We all leave our home and go on a long journey.

Therefore, we are like “the goodman” who is found in the book of the Proverbs of God’s BIBLE:

“For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:” [Proverbs 7:19]

Magog & the Wheel of the Giants

Magog & the Wheel of the GiantsReminiscent of the gigantic war in the valley of Armageddon [Revelation 16:16], this war also involves an invitation by God for every fowl, and every beast of the field, to come to the sacrifice of Gog—all to glory of God before the whole world.

The scenario is the same for both of these gigantic wars – in Hamongog and in Armageddon; these are the sacrifices of the heathen to the GLORY of GOD, yet both of these wars occur in two different valleys in two different events in time.

Termites in the Wall, Or Replacement Theology (or Supersessionism)

Replacement TheologyThere are those who hold to something called Replacement Theology [or Supersessionism].

Replacement Theology is a variant of Covenant Theology.

Replacement Theology maintains that the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and that God does not have any future plan for the literal, physical nation of Israel [to be head of all nations in a future one-thousand-year Kingdom of Heaven].

Replacement Theology also maintains that the church has replaced Israel.

The Five Fallen Kings in the Revelation of Jesus Christ

Or Called The Stone Effect

The Five Fallen KingsWhen a man decides to live by bread alone without God, and without God’s words, he falls prey to the power of darkness [Colossians 1:13].

In other words, he makes himself vulnerable to the wiles of the Devil.

The Face of The Son

The Face of The Son

Since the year A.D. 1900 mankind has achieved much progress towards a global utopia, not unlike what mankind attempted to accomplish in the days of Babel.

They wanted a one-world city without God. “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” [Genesis 11:4]

This shows that mankind is very progressive by nature in his attitude towards God: a hater of God.

The Muckraker & Faith

The Muckraker & Faith

During the Vietnam War I requested that the old man [the Captain] of the U.S.S. Enterprise CVN-65 grant me the opportunity to see the real navy by letting me spend some time on a “tin can”.

Definition: “Tin can” is U.S. Navy slang for a destroyer.

Within days I was helicoptered on high seas over the surging rear deck of the U.S.S. Wilson DDG-7, and I climbed down the rope ladder while the pilot hovered over the destroyer.

I was to find out really quickly what it was like to “reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man”!

The Winter of Life

The Hand of Man

Far above us, to the north of us, beyond this universe, is the most strangest of places a person could ever behold.

Here it is: “Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.” [Psalm 48:2]

The Hand of Man

The Hand of ManThe human being [as originally created in the image of God] is comprised of three parts: soul, body, and spirit - three in one!

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The Unknown God - The Mystery of God

The Unknown God - The Trinity“For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.”

The UNKNOWN GOD was known once upon a time by our forefathers.

See the proof for this: “The war with Britain had cut off the supply of Bibles, and, on September 11, 1777, the Continental Congress reviewed a committee report, informing them that a locally produced Bible may not be a viable option, due to the risk and cost of procuring the materials necessary.”

The Meeting In The Air - The Translation Of The Church

The Meeting In The Air - The Translation of The ChurchThe Kingdom of God is primarily spiritual and is populated by those born of the Spirit, and placed into the body of Jesus Christ. God has destined the Church, the body of Christ, to be his bride, and to inhabit a city called New Jerusalem.

We are waiting for a trumpet to sound and gather us to him in the clouds … in a vast meeting in the air just before the wrath of God is unleashed in the 70th week of Daniel, which is the upcoming seven years of tribulation of Jacob’s trouble.

Imagery In The Night - Superman Meets The Ant-lion Imagery In The Night

In a snapshot of time, from a past not too distant, we can see “pourtrayed” on a wall, through the twenty-twenty-eyes of history, this image of the United States of America in the latter part of the 19th century.

 America [seemingly on a rise to becoming the greatest nation of the earth] is seen tottering upon a great continental divide, while musing in a valley of decision.

The Androids and the Daysman Moral Gravitation

America’s religious and political leaders [deliberately] removed all the moral boundaries so as to promote evil to flourish in the land. 

They removed the boundaries. 

In the precise archaic English language of 1611, they have removed “the bound”:  “The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.” [Hosea 5:10]

The Sheep Hear His Voice The Millennial Kingdom

[Revelation 1:15]
“And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.”

1. The Voice of God
SIGNIFICATION - Every voice in the world is unique in signification.

“There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.” [1 Corinthians 14:10]

TUNED - From the beginning of creation [nearly six thousand years ago] [before sin came into the world] man was tuned to hear the voice of God. God’s voice is unique in “signification”, and man was uniquely created to understand that “signification”.


The Sea Change - The Millennium The Millennial Kingdom

This message is written in a time very near to the end of an age … the age of the CHURCH.

This message is written by a “born again” [John 3:3], “saved” by grace [Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:5], Gentile believer in Jesus Christ [who came into the camp so-to-speak], waiting for “the great fly-away” [the Translation of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) which is the church (Colossians 1:24)], which event is soon to happen before the time of Jacob’s Trial [Jeremiah 30:7].

This is a message that concerns the future “Sea Change” that is coming to the Earth.
[2 Peter 3:8]
“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”


Majestic Sweetness  ... as sung and played by Deborah Martin

[Inditing is committing to the written words “a good matter” which things burn in the heart of a manMajestic Sweetness that thirsts after God] “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.”

The man that thirsts after God sees through the eye of faith "someone" who is “fairer than children of men”.

Psalm 45:2 “Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.”

Samuel Stennett saw ... what most men never have seen.

He saw "someone" clothed in glory and in majesty.

 The Words of The LORD Are Pure WordsJohn Cowden

Christian, do you believe that your Heavenly Father inspired the very words of scripture?

Now imagine that the Lord’s own words were compiled in a book and placed on the desk before you. Would you take it up gladly, cherish it and read it?

If not, please trouble yourself no further. If, on the other hand, you would, but aren't fully aware that he did, this message is addressed to you.

The Memory of Our Fathers by Lyman Beecher Lyman Beecher

Lyman Beecher, 1775-1863, a famous Congregational minister wrote the following:


We are called upon to cherish with high veneration and grateful recollections, the memory of our fathers. Both the ties of nature and the dictates of policy demand this. And surely no nation had ever less occasion to be ashamed of its ancestry, or more occasion for gratulation in that respect; for while most nations trace their origin to barbarians, the foundations of our nation were laid by civilized men, by Christians.

The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan Pilgrims Progress


In the Similitude of a Dream
{10} As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den , and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and, as I slept, I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and behold, I saw a man clothed with rags, standing in a certain place, with his face from his own house, a book in his hand, and a great burden upon his back. [Isa. 64:6; Luke 14:33; Ps. 38:4;
Hab. 2:2; Acts 16:30,31] I looked, and saw him open the book, and read therein; and, as he read, he wept, and trembled; and, not being able longer to contain, he brake out with a lamentable cry, saying, "What shall I do?" [Acts 2:37]  Read more?

The Hedge of ThornsHedge of Thorns

Sin within the heart of man fans the flames ever hotter and hotter when the inhabitants of this earth come together.

It is not healthy for people when the people live too close together. It is as Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers, that gave us this observation over two hundred years ago. Quote: “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”

Now, Thomas Jefferson believed the Bible as many of our forefathers did. They got their “wisdom” from the word of God. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10] This is where we need to go … in order to receive WISDOM.  Read more?

The Myth of Early RevisionsPastor David Reagan

Men have been "handling the word of God deceitfully" (II Cor. 4:2) ever since the devil first taught Eve how. From Cain to Balaam, from Jehudi to the scribes and Pharisees, from the Dark Age theologians to present-day scholars, the living words of the Almighty God have been prime targets for man’s corrupting hand.

The attacks on the Word of God are threefold: addition, subtraction, and substitution. From Adam’s day to the computer age, the strategies have remained the same. There is nothing new under the sun.  Read more?

The John Gano Evidence of George Washington’s Religion

The John Gano Evidence of George Washington’s Baptism George Washington's Baptism
None of the numerous sesquicentennial events in our land has deeper significance than the dedication of a college chapel in the heart of the country in memory of John Gano “the fighting chaplain” of the Revolutionary War and a close friend of George Washington.

John Gano and his sons stood preeminent in three particulars: patriotism, missions and education. Heroic devotion to the country, heroic devotion to the extension of the sway of Christ and heroic devotion to higher education have seldom been so splendidly combined. Read more?

Inspiration: Temporal or Eternal?

I believe that inspiration is not a process but an entity, an eternal entity, a fact or deed. If the KJV translators had believed it was a process they would have translated II Timothy 3:16 “pasa graphe theopneustos” as “All scripture is God breathed.”  Read more?
