Moses wrote the first 5 books of the bible. The law was given through Moses. All of the blood sacrifices pointed to the truth that without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. Messiah Jesus Christ is the perfect Lamb of God who took away the sins of the whole world. All Christians must love the Jews. It is sad how many Jews continue to fail to see Jesus in the writings of Moses. The Exodus record of how God plagued Egypt while protecting His people in Goshen is very important as we near and enter great tribulation. It illustrates how God will protect and provide for us as Jews and Gentile Christians stand together in the war Antichrist wages on the saints.
Genesis 3:5 - ...ye shall be as gods.
THIS IS THE LIE. IT FORMS FUNDAMENTAL THESIS OF HINDUISM, BUDDHISM, MORMONISM, NEW AGE MOVEMENT, GLOBALISM, REINCARNATION, THE OCCULT AND ALMOST EVERY OTHER ISM OTHER THAN ORTHODOX JUDAISM AND CHRISTIANITY. LEARN TO RECOGNIZE THIS LIE REGARDLESS OF WHICH OF THE THOUSANDS OF NEW SUGAR COATINGS THAT SATAN PUTS OVER THIS BASIC FUNDAMENTAL LIE DESIGNED TO TAKE US TO HELL.
Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he as> not; for God took him.
ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD. ARE WE WALKING WITH GOD OR AWAY FROM HIM? ENOCH DID NOT DIE. GOD TOOK HIM.
Hebrews 9:27 - And as it is appointed unto men [once to die], but after this the judgment:
ELIJAH IS THE
ONLY OTHER MAN WHO DID NOT DIE. PERHAPS ENOCH AND ELIJAH ARE
GOD'S 2 SPECIAL WITNESSES IN THE TRIBULATION WHO STAND POWERFULLY
I used to be open to that possibility and thought pattern regarding Enoch possibly being one of the 2 witnesses. I guess we all have to be willing to change when confronted with the truth.
Hey -- that is not a bad definition of REPENTANCE.
It has been speculated that because of Hebrews 9:27, Enoch and Elijah would return as the Two Witnesses, and die. Considering, however, that Lazarus (John 11:1-44), Tabitha (Acts 9:36-41), and Eutychus (Acts 20:9-10) died twice, we can only conclude that Hebrews 9:27 references the natural order of man, and is not meant to be restrictive. Lazarus, Tabitha, and Eutychus are obvious exceptions to this rule, as are Enoch and Elijah.
"Moses," the Levite, (Exodus 2:1-10) will be a Jew; "Elijah" the Tishbite, who was "of the inhabitants of Gilead" (I Kings 17:1) will be a Gentile. Like Moses, these men will have the power to turn the waters into blood, and strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want. Like Elijah, they will have a ministry to be able to stop the rain, and cause plagues like the one referenced in 2 Chronicles 21:12-15,18-19.
Genesis 8:21 ... and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart s> evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
THE EARTH WILL NEVER AGAIN BE DESTROYED. MAN NOW HAS NUCLEAR CAPABILITY OF DESTROYING ALL LIFE ON EARTH; HOWEVER, GOD WILL NOT ALLOW IT. WE CAN FORGET ABOUT ALL OF THE SCIENTISTS WHO PREDICT DOOM. OZONE DEPLETION, GLOBAL WARMING, etc., IS ALL A BUNCH OF HORSEFEATHERS. WE SHOULD NOT TRASH THE ENVIRONMENT BUT GOD WILL NOT ALLOW THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PLANET. ENVIRONMENTAL EXTREMISM ILLUSTRATES THE HEIGHT OF HUMAN VANITY AND PLAYS RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF ANTICHRIST. GOD WILL INTERVENE AT THE LORD'S SECOND COMING TO PREVENT THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL FLESH BY ANTICHRIST. THE IMAGINATION OF MAN'S HEART IS EVIL FROM HIS YOUTH. THIS IS WHY WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD. OTHERWISE WE CANNOT HELP BUT THINK AND DO EVIL. MAN'S GREATEST PROBLEM IS THAT HE TRIES TO HIDE OR EXCUSE HIS SIN, JUST LIKE THE ALCOHOLIC DENIES THAT HE HAS A DRINKING PROBLEM. WE NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT TO CONVINCE US OF OUR SINS AND LEAD US TO CONFESS THEM AND HELP US REPENT FROM OUR SINS. JESUS PAID THE FULL PRICE FOR ALL OF OUR SINS BUT WE STILL HAVE TO CONFESS AND REPENT. THIS WE CANNOT DO WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Genesis 10:8-10 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
NOAH CURSED HAM'S SON. tHE CURSE WOULD MAKE THE DESCENDANTS OF CANNAN TO BE SLAVES, AS A RESULT OF HAM'S SIN AGAINST NOAH. HAM ALSO BEGAT CUSH. CUSH DID NOTT WANT THIS CURSE TO HAVE EFFECT ON HIS DESCENDANTS. CUSH BEGAT NIMROD WHOSE NAME IN HEBREW MEANS "WE WILL REBEL". THIS POINTS TO VIOLENT AND OPEN REBELLION AGAINST GOD. NO DOUBT HAM TOLD CUSH ABOUT THE CURSE. CUSH DIDN'T LIKE IT TO THE POINT HE NAMED HIS SON "WE WILL REBEL."
WE BEGIN TO SEE THE SEEDS OF ANTICHRIST RIGHT HERE. NIMROD BECAME A MIGHTY ONE IN THE EARTH BY BOLD AND DARING DEEDS. HIS DEEDS WERE TO HUNT MEN BY TYRANNY, FORCE AND CONFUSION. HE BUILT BABEL AND HENCE, IN SCRIPTURE, BABYLON MEANS MORE THAN THE CAPITOL CITY OF CHALDEA. BABYLON MEANS TYRANNY AND CONFUSION AND OPEN REBELLION AGAINST GOD. NIMROD WAS OBSESSED WITH RAGE AGAINST THE CURSE AND PROPHESY OF NOAH REGARDING THE GENERATIONS OF HAM BEING SLAVES. HE WOULD NOT BE A SLAVE. HE WOULD HUNT SLAVES. HE LORDED IT OVER OTHERS, HUNTING AND DESTROYING ALL WHO OPPOSED HIM IN HIS TYRANNY. HE PERSUADED MEN, NOT TO ASCRIBE THEIR TRUST TO GOD, BUT TO HIM. HE TAUGHT MEN TO CENTRALIZE AND FEDERALIZE GOVERNMENT. HE DIRECTLY OPPOSED GOD'S COMMAND TO NOAH TO REPLENSISH THE EARTH (Gen. 9:1), CONCENTRATING PEOPLE IN A SINGLE LARGE CITY AS OPPOSED TO DISPERSING THEM. HE OPENLY DEFIED GOD TO SEND ANOTHER FLOOD. HE ESTABLISHED THE FIRST KINGDOM AND ESTABLISHED THE FIRST GREAT UNIVERSAL RELIGION OPPOSING GOD SINCE THE FLOOD. THIS WAS DONE OPENLY "before the Lord" IN OPEN DEFIANCE TO GOD.
HIS WIFE, SEMIRAMIS, BECAME PREGNANT AFTER HIS DEATH AND WAS THE UNWED MOTHER OF TAMMUZ. THE ROOTS OF ALMOST ALL ANCIENT RELIGIONS AND MANY MODERN ONES INCLUDING THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT CAN BE TRACED TO THESE THREE PEOPLE NIMROD, SEMIRAMIS, AND TAMMUZ. JUST A FEW ARE THE ANCIENT BABYLONIAN SUN GOD, AND HIS WIFE ISHTAR, OR APHRODITE, OR VENUS; OSIRIS AND ISIS OF THE EGYPTIANS, AS WELL AS THE HINDU GODS, ALL REINCARNATION RELIGIONS, BUDDHISTS, AND ALL OF THE OCCULT RELIGIONS INCLUDING MOTHER EARTH CAN TRACE THEIR ROOTS TO NIMROD.
GOD HAD A REAL PROBLEM WITH WHAT WAS GOING ON IN NIMROD'S CROWN JEWEL CITY OF BABEL. THE WAY NIMROD WAS GOING, THE RIGHTEOUS GOD FEARING CHILDREN OF SHEM AND JAPHET DID NOT STAND A CHANCE UNLESS GOD SOMEHOW DIRECTLY INTERVENED ON THEIR BEHALF. WE SEE HERE A PICTURE OF HOW GOD WILL DIRECTLY INTERVENE WITH THE RETURN OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO DELIVER HIS SAINTS FROM THE WAR WHICH ANTICHRIST WAGES ON THEM.
Genesis 11:5-9 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people <is> one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
CAN WE SEE THE MERCY OF GOD PROTECTING HIS PEOPLE? CAN WE SEE WHAT NIMROD STARTED BEING CARRIED ON TODAY? ARE POLITICAL LEADERS CALLING FOR CENTRALIZED GOVERNMENT?
DO POLITICAL LEADERS SEEM TO BE CALLING FOR A GLOBAL OR ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT?
CHRISTIANS, and all people, need to KNOW THAT ANY WORLD GOVERNMENT PRIOR TO THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST WILL BE HEADED BY ANTICHRIST.
Genesis 28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.
THE ARAB ISRAELI CONFLICT OVER PALESTINE CANNOT BE RESOLVED. IF IT IS EVER APPEARS TO BE RESOLVED AT THE PEACE TABLE, IT WILL BE ANTICHRIST WHO IS IN CONTROL OF THE NEGOTIATING PROCESS. GOD GAVE THE LAND TO ISRAEL. SATAN IS STIRRING UP THE ARABS TO FIGHT ISRAEL FOR THIS LAND GIVEN TO ISRAEL BY GOD. BEWARE OF THE PERSON BEHIND ANY ARAB/ISRAELI PEACE TREATIES. HE MAY BE ANTICHRIST.
Exodus 9:23-26 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that [was] in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel [were], was there no hail.
NOTICE HOW GOD PROTECTED HIS PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THESE PLAGUES. DURING THE TRIBULATION GOD WILL PROVIDE SUPERNATURAL PROTECTION FOR HIS PEOPLE. DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE RAPTURE OCCURRING AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION. GET RIGHT WITH GOD. WHEN WE ARE UNDER THE GREAT UMBRELLA OF GOD'S PROTECTION WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE HURT BY THE PLAGUES OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION. THE TEACHING OF A PRETRIBULATION RAPTURE MAY BE A PART OF THE END TIME STRONG DELUSION DESIGNED TO LEAD AWAY EVEN THE ELECT IF IT WERE POSSIBLE. WE ALL MUST GET RIGHT WITH GOD AND STAY IN A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. THE PLAGUES SOON COMING AGAIN UPON ALL THE EARTH WILL DESTROY EVERYONE WHO IS NOT PROTECTED BY GOD.
Exodus 9:29-30 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; [and] the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth [is] the LORD'S. But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God.
WE KNOW THAT DURING THE GREAT TRIBULATION THE PLAGUES COME AS WAVES GROWING MORE AND MORE SEVERE. MOST PEOPLE WILL HAVE THEIR HEARTS HARDENED AGAINST GOD INSTEAD OF REPENTING.
