HELL and a warning:
Why do you think, Jesus Christ spoke more about Hell than about Heaven? Do you think it is because He knew the future and the Lies that Satan would spin about God’s Eternal Judgment? I believe that He wanted to make it very, very clear to us that Hell is a place to fear for it is an eternal punishment and not just a momentary punishment. Even Justinian compromised and explained that surely God would allow the dead an opportunity to be redeemed or prayed into heaven. This of course is where the idea of “Purgatory” came from. Sadly this is the belief of all Catholics and Mormons (who do not name it purgatory), and therefore probably the majority of people who call themselves “Christian”. Satan has done a good job of deceiving people. This is a very sad reflection of the church and the Seminaries. Speaking of seminaries, they have also neglected to teach their students about the importance and facets of Apologetics. Hence they graduate students without the ability to defend the Faith against the adherents of Evolution and the cults!
The Seventh Day Adventist and the Jehovah Witness have another take on Hell. They do not believe in it at all, and declare that everything will be annihilated except for them. This Annihilation deception is again, Satan’s attempt to negate the Sovereignty of God and the “position” where God places believers and non-believers. Without Hell there is no True Heaven, and no True Tri-une God as declared by Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Father.
Hell and the dark forces on this earth are connected to Satan and his schemes to thwart the Gospel and Redemption. Satan and his demons will be cast into the same fiery pit as those who are condemned at the Great White Throne Judgment by God. This is not a temporary judgment. Jesus said, “The Son of Man will send out his angels and they will uproot from the kingdom everything that is spoiling it, and all those who live in defiance of its laws, and will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be tears and bitter regret.” (Matthew 13:24-43) Jesus called it a place of wailing and of weeping, a place of outer darkness. Jesus also spoke of “Ge-henna” which was a familiar physical “hell” to the people of the time for it represented the smoldering garbage dump that served the city of Jerusalem. Hell, of course, is not a physical place, and therefore annihilation which relates to the physical is not Biblical Truth! Hell is an Eternal agony, and supernatural = an after death experience with eternal separation from God. Right now, God is building up His Kingdom and Satan is building “down” his.
A Warning: The Americo-Euro-Asians and all who choose the world over God, have grown too comfortable in a techno-sugar-coated-superficial narcissism. I am reminded of a man who was in prison and looked forward to latrine duty so that he could collect the used and unused toilet paper provided by the cruel warden from torn up Bibles. He so wanted to learn the Word of God. Many have grown up in total poverty or neglect and God is giving them visions and dreams to bring them to him. In this world of mass transportation and communication, God says, “I have given the privileged the Gospel and they have rejected me, so I am giving the crumbs to the dispossessed.”
He warns, “I am going to bring you to Holy ground one way or another, so you had better come as soon as you can on my terms. You chose to ignore me and to resist my gifts of salvation and the Spirit, now you will face cleansing trials and tribulations”.
He is saying, “I spoke in parables because you would not listen nor hear; you refused to see me and see the Truth. You want your own desires and your own dreams, so I will give them to you as a veil that will blind you to my coming. You seek your own will, so I will harden your heart, and as unto the Pharaoh you will not see my judgment to come until it is too late. You hear and follow false prophets and teachers; you think and hope you will be lifted up before you are tried; I will not pluck the spoiling seed until the stalk dies, for you will face the desert wind, fire, and the shaking from the four corners. You and your people will fall into deception, and lies, and the mighty will fall. My Word is not a hidden Truth, yet you have failed to study my Revelation and my Promises.”
Jesus forewarns us all concerning the “days of Noah,” and people will be marrying and being given unto marriage, when the judgment comes. They will not heed the warnings, nor give any credence to them. Are you one of them? Read the new book COSMIC CROSSROAD COUNTDOWN: The Fig Tree & the Prophetic Generation to understand what is about to happen. History will repeat itself and the “Wheels of Time” are there for us to study and learn from.
Turkey is turning more and more into the Gog of the Bible. They have imprisoned Pastor Brunson on trumped up charges using hidden witnesses and mock trials. They have in essence admitted that they are doing this in retribution for our failure to turn over certain American citizens for trial in their country. There is good evidence that Turkey is the “seat of Satan” as described in Revelation, concerning the church of Pergamum. Satan would feel at home in a city with 4 Temples to the Emperors of Rome, a Temple to Artimus, and a huge Temple to Zeus on top of there summit. This summit complex had the steepest amphitheater in the world and still stands. In one of the buildings snakes would be used for healing; there were rooms where one would sleep with snakes in the hope that the serpents would crawl over them and give them good dreams, and healing. Zeus was the pinnacle of paganism and represented Apostasy. Like BAAL he was the God of Thunder with lightening in his hands. He was connected to the defilement of the Temple- the abomination of desolation in the 2nd century BC. In essence this altar was to be the throne to Satan, but it was pulled down by the Maccabean revolt. The altar in Pergamum was not destroyed at this time. Read Rev. 2:12 about the church, “where Satan dwells…” Later under Titus and the altar of Zeus, Rome would rename the area where the Jews had lived as “Palestinia”. Satan is and was determined to remove the Jews and displace even their name. He wants to put himself on the throne of your life- will you let him?
The Christian elder and pastor, Antipas was burned alive as a burnt offering at the altar to Zeus in Pergamum. This “throne of Satan” was later discovered by a German engineer and moved to Berlin and reconstructed. In 1930 it was opened to the public just in time for Adolph Hitler. This throne and altar inspired Hitler’s podium platform and his torch parades, and eventually the “Cathedral of Light” created by dozens of spotlights pointing to heaven. Read Isaiah 14:12-14 and read the amazing parallel to Satan-like pride and ambition. Hitler employed “Hollywood Stars” to add to his German mystique. Soon he formed the Nuremberg Laws which removed the citizenship from the Jews and then set up the “final solution,” the Holocaust. Was this in essence another “burnt offering” to Satan, just as Antipas was? Hitler made the Jews the “scapegoat”. The Jews were led like lambs to slaughter in “cattle cars”.
We may see Turkey making more alliances with nations like Russia and Iran in the near future, as it contends with both Israel and America. Recently Erdogan, the self proclaimed dictator of Turkey, told America and Israel that moving the embassy to Jerusalem “was their red line.” Iran has already told us that rescinding the Iran agreement established by Obama, would be crossing a red line, with severe consequences. Well that line was crossed, and Iran fired missiles into Israel – a big mistake. Israel had already warned Putin and the Russians not to turn on their anti-aircraft SAM missiles which they honored. Israel was able to destroy all the Iranian military sites in Syria in just one evening. Now Iran, realizing that they have been betrayed by Russia, has reneged on the treaty and agreements with Russia, Europe and others and is preparing for nuclear war.
Here in May or June we also have the potential conference between Kim of North Korea and Trump. Is this another trap or smokescreen from North Korea for a surprise attack on the South or on us? We are entering a very precarious period with ominous signs. Some of those signs are of natural order such as the 3 surprise eruptions of a normally “dormant” Steamboat geyser in Yellowstone (which produces a geyser 10X the volume of Old Faithful) and the fierce eruption of the volcano on the large island in Hawaii. This is a volcanic island like many in the Pacific that are now very active. There are earthquakes happening all around the ring of fire surrounding the entire Pacific ocean. Does all this portend of a massive earthquake in California?
There is a chance for Redemption to all who call upon the Lord. God is bringing miraculous healing and salvation to many people throughout the Middle East and the World. Trust is the Lord with All your Heart and Lean not on your own understand, Acknowledge Him in all that you do, and He will make your path straight. If you confess Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that He was raised from the dead, you will be saved.
