Today Reminder (Evolution) – 26 July 2017


A reminder for today
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (Genesis 1:26)

I am sorry I am a little late today. I had to pick up my car from the panel beaters and in our morning traffic that was quite an adventure. So, I thought I will add to your knowledge base a little and give you more info that will boost your faith a little.

In today’s world we hear this quite often: Science has proven evolution therefore evolution is true. Since evolution is true and Christians do not believe science, then they are not rational people. Let’s look at this claim. Now firstly evolution in the sense that things change is evident and no rational person disputes that. Therefore, rational Christians believe it, because we can observe change. Now evolution that states that life came from non-life and that life randomly began to generate new genetic information and over time it eventually produced humans is something entirely different plus this is something that does not really hold up against science. I mean evolution from molecules to man is not scientific possible and should not be viewed as scientific fact. This is in contrast to science. When you look at observational science which is the kind of science you can test, repeat and observe with your five senses. Now science demonstrates that over time organisms lose genetic information and not gain it and that same science demonstrates that life does not come from none life. 

Fact one: there is no known observable process by which new genetic information can be added to an organism’s genetic code and that refutes evolution. So how can anything evolve from an amoeba to a man without adding any genetic information. The answer, it can’t. Many has speculated and imagined all kinds of things and they brought in artists to make nice drawings based on guesses. So, they make a very convincing story telling people evolved from an ape like creature. Remember that those are just guesses with nice stories. What we really see is that humans are humans and apes are apes. 

Fact two: never has it ever been observed that life can come from non life.   

So, where do we come from? It is plain and simple. God created each one of us in His image. He made it all and it all belongs to Him. You are in the image of our creator. You are perfect and beautiful in every sense of it. Smile, because in Him we are made perfect.

Lord, thank you for all the evidence that you give us to boost our faith and have no doubt. You are our God and you are all we need. To you we give all the glory, in Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus. 

Cheers

Today Reminder (Antichrist 6) – 25 July 2017



A reminder for today
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. (Luke 18:3)

How are you, my friend? Now let’s see if we can conclude on the coming antichrist. It is clear that his arrival is prophesised from the old testament all the way through to revelation.  You saw that Habakkuk, Zachariah, John and Paul wrote about this man and his control. In Habakkuk 2 we see another vision of the antichrist and this one is quite disturbing. Here it become extremely clear that the antichrist’s reach cannot be underestimated. This man will literally seize complete control of every nation and their governments at every level. This will include the global economy, all military activity, all education, the media, internet, communication, intelligence, all commerce, transportation, shipping, all legal systems, energy, food production and every religion. This will be a one world government with the worst possible leader. 

Off course this man will need an army therefore there will be devil empowered religious hierarchy beneath the antichrist that will enforce his commands (if you continue with Habakkuk 2). In Daniel 8 we see the antichrist described as a little horn that will rule the south the east and the pleasant land (Judea – remember Shinar). So, we can predict that this man’s origin will be from the north east. The archangel Gabriel explains the coming antichrist to Daniel in chapter 8:23-25. Now here we see that he will be empowered by satan and that he will destroy many even Christians, but this man will be destroyed by Jesus, the prince of princes. So now we can return to Paul’s words in 2 Thessalonians 2:8 where he said that Jesus will destroy the antichrist with manifestation of His coming. Also remember that Daniel received a vision in Daniel 8 of days to come which is our time. This is the vision that made Daniel sick for days (verse 27) and he did not understand the vision. So, you are learning what Daniel did not understood.  

Now to end there are a number of scriptures that tells us what will prelude the coming of the antichrist. We will look at Luke 21:8-9, here Jesus says that when you will hear of wars and commotions do not fear, for these things must first pass. Now wars, rumours, instability and disorder makes our headlines on a daily basis. There seem to be more problems coming more often all over the world. Fear will become much more widespread. The list of things already happening in the world is huge and terrifying for that matter. Now these conditions are there so that the world will welcome a false and counterfeit saviour. People will accept this lie and think of the antichrist as the return of Jesus. 

Knowing all of this, why would God allow this to happen? Remember that he nations of earth has rejected God and chose to serve sin and the god of this world (satan). Main stream christianity is also no exception with its laws done away theology. So, God will send down the man of sin to a world that has excepted sin over God. 

Please be alert and do not allow the enemy to confuse you with his lies. Seek Jesus in all that you do and spend more time in His Word. Pray often and strengthen your faith. The time ahead will first get bad before it will get better. Luckily Jesus will be with us and He will give us the strength we need to face this time and stand victorious at the end when He returns. 

Lord, we give you our hearts and we ask that you will show us the way and guide us through our challenges so that we will continue to bring glory to you regardless of our troubles. In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.

Today Reminder (Antichrist 5) – 24 July 2017


A reminder for today
And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. (Luke 18:3)

How was your weekend. I hope you rested a little. We still have much to discuss on the antichrist so that we will have a full picture. Just one thing you should remember: it is in our faith that we stand out and live differently. It is because we are saved that the world rejects us and it is because of our knowledge that the enemy seeks us out. You are saved and you will be with me in heaven, because in Jesus we have more than life. We have an almighty God.

Now the antichrist. Now in 2 Thessalonians 2:10 we see that the antichrist brings all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because the receive not the love of the truth (God’s word) so that they might be saved. And for this cause God will send them strong delusion (fraud), that the should believe a lie that they all might be dammed (judged) who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. The judging involves certain Christians who knew the truth but were seduced into sin. The thing that you should avoid most in this trial is disbelieve of truth and sin starting with rejecting outright blasphemy by the antichrist. 

Now how did Paul new this evil man was coming. There are a number of clues in the old testament. Look at this vision recorded by the prophet Zachariah in chapter 5 verse 5 to 8: Now the angel that talked with me said lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that goes forth. And I said what is it and he said this an ephah (eight-gallon jar) that goes forth. He said moreover, this is their resemblance through all the earth. Now note that more than one person (actually three) is being described. Now he continuous and behold there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sits in the midst of the ephah. Now recall from earlier that the man of sin rises up out of the midst. He continuous and says that this is wickedness (remember Paul called him that wicked one). And he cast it into the midst of the ephah and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof. This figure sits hidden today within a symbolic jar covered with a poisonous lead top. It says that the man of sin is revealed to literally take of the top as you would do with a jar. 

In verse 9 to 10 Zachariah brings two other figures into the picture. He writes then lifted I up my eyes and looked and behold there came out two woman and the wind was in their wings for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. Then said I to the angel where do these bear the ephah? Very important is that you see these two men flank the antichrist. In 2 Timothy 3:8 they are typed in as Jannes and Jambres who withstood Moses. In Zachariah 11:8 we see them as reflected as three shepherds who abhorred God and the antichrist is referred to as the evil shepherd. Now know that the woman in Zachariah is plainly translated in the new testament as a man (the man of sin) and the stork woman are therefore also men. Now verse 11 holds a big clue of the antichrist intentions where is says after verse 10: To build an house in the land of Shinar (a symbol for Jerusalem) and it shall be established (erected) and set there upon her own base. So the construction of a false temple will commence in Jerusalem after the man of sin explodes onto the world. He will be a precise counterfeit if Jesus coming in the clouds. To make room for this house of the antichrist everything on the temple mount will be destroyed fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus where He said in Luke 2: 16 the days will come in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down. Now remember despite the destruction of the temple in AD69 – 70 of the temple this has not yet happened. There are still thousands of stones upon one another. So, every stone will be cleared to make way for satan’s world headquarters. Ok, we will continue on this tomorrow.

Lord, thank you for the amazing grace that you bestowed upon us and the love that we receive out of your wonderful mercy. Be with us as we face our challenges and keep us standing in the storms ahead. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
