People might feel like they can get away with violating a traffic law or cheating on their taxes, but God and His laws work much differently. Answer: A Yes, God knows each one of us (every person on earth) better than we know ourselves. Answer: A Because there is only one narrow path that leads to godlikeness, and thus to His kingdom. Answer: A God permits disobedience and sin to continue until all people everywhere are at last fully convinced of God's justice, love, and mercy. Answer: A If I have had no opportunity to learn a certain Bible truth, God does not hold me accountable. Jesus says that He will call them to His true way, and His true sheep will hear and follow (John 10:16, 27).
It's no fairytale - one day, you can be free from all the hurt, hunger, aloneness, crime, and chaos infecting the world today. Answer: A The Scriptures promise that Jesus will return to this earth in the same manner that He left at His ascension--in a visible, literal, bodily, personal manner.
Answer: A Every man, woman, and child living in the world when Jesus returns will see Him at His second coming. Answer: A Jesus is coming back to this earth to reward His people as He promised and to take them to the beautiful home He has prepared for them. Answer: A The righteous dead will be raised from their graves, given perfect, immortal bodies like that of Christ, and caught up into the clouds to meet the Lord. A A Does the Bible give specific information regarding the nearness of Christ's second coming?
Answer: A a€?Satan has invented many false teachings about the second coming and is deceiving millions into believing that Christ has already come or that He will come in some non-biblical manner. Answer: A There is great danger in becoming so busy with the cares of this life or so entranced by the pleasures of sin that the coming of the Lord may slip up on us as the Flood did on the world in Noah's day, and we will be surprised, unprepared, and lost. It is true that a terrible tribulation will cover the earth just before Jesus returns to deliver His people. 9.A A Does the Bible give specific information regarding the nearness of Christ's second coming?
Answer: A Satan has invented many false teachings about the second coming and is deceiving millions into believing that Christ has already come or that He will come in some non-biblical manner.
Would you like to have that kind of experience?A Well, that is exactly what happened to the children of Israel when they left Egypt and wandered in the wilderness for forty years. God sees everything we do, hears everything we say, and He really does care about how we behave. All will finally realize that God, by requiring obedience, is not trying to force His will upon us, but rather is trying to keep us from hurting and destroying ourselves. He promises to keep me from error and lead me safely to all truth if I: (1) pray earnestly for guidance, (2) sincerely study God's Word, and (3) follow truth as soon as I am shown. But the Bible teaches that I am responsible to God for all the light (knowledge of right) I have and all I can have!
Satan, in order to make God's requests appear unreasonable, invented the falsehood that obedience is impossible.
We must give God credit for being wise enough to require some things of us we may not understand. He knows that all disobedience is sin and that sin brings unhappiness, tragedy, alienation from God, and eventual destruction. He promises that just as He worked a miracle to bring us the new birth, He will also continue to work needed miracles in our lives (as we gladly follow Him) until we are safe in His kingdom. Matthew 7:21-23 makes it clear that many who prophesy, cast out devils, and do many wonderful works in Christ's name will be lost but will think they are saved. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? The staggering threefold (Luke 9:26) brightness of His coming will stretch from horizon to horizon, and the atmosphere will be charged with brilliant glory like lightning. As the cloud nears the earth, Jesus will send His angels, and they will quickly gather together all of the righteous people in preparation for the trip back to heaven (Matthew 24:31).
He will restore to His people all of the joys and glories of Eden that Adam and Eve lost by sinning. Then the righteous living will also be given bodies like Christ and will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. This earthquake will be of such a devastating nature that it will leave the world in a state of total destruction.
Through the Holy Spirit and my conscience, Jesus knocks and asks to come into my heart so that He can change my life.
While the Lord offers forgiveness for our sins, there still are deadly consequences for breaking God's law.
The Bible is the map and guidebook with full instructions, warnings, and information on how to safely reach that kingdom. The sin problem is not settled until even the most cynical and hardened sinners are convinced of God's love and confess that He is just. This being true, surely it is high time to abandon all fuzziness regarding what is right or wrong. It seems so harmless to wait, but the Bible teaches that unless a person acts immediately upon light, it quickly turns to darkness. When a person knowingly rejects light and continues in disobedience, the light eventually goes out, and he is left in total darkness. The Bible is speaking here not of one single act or sin but of a presumptuous continuation in sin and a refusal to surrender to Christ after one knows better. We cannot know the exact day and hour of Christ's return (Matthew 24:36), but we can be confident that we are the people who will live to see Jesus return. The word a€?tempteda€? comes from the Greek word peiradzo, an old Greek word that means to put to the test. God does not promise eternal life to those who merely make a profession of faith or are church members or are baptized, but rather to those who do His will, which is revealed in Scripture. It will take perhaps a major catastrophe or worse to convince some, but the horrible results of sinful living will finally convince all that God is just and right. People had better stop letting their own foolish whims and egotistical notions guide them and pay attention to God's great book.
Of this group, only two (Caleb and Joshua) fully followed the Lord, and they alone entered Canaan. Obstacles to obedience are not removed while we stand and wait; instead, they usually increase in size.


No child will fully obey his parents unless he loves them, nor will he love his parents if he does not obey. Simple faith and trust in God will cause us to believe that He knows what is best for us and will never lead us in any wrong path. Those who refuse to obey God will end up believing a lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12) and thus think they are saved when instead they are lost.
And these are just a few of many, many positive signs that show we are in the closing days of earth's history.
Spiritism has invaded the churches, as well, with the false teaching of the immortality of the soul. For example, Jesus stated specifically that He will not appear in the desert or come to the seance chambers (verse 26). As a free gift, He bestows upon me His own righteous character so I can stand unafraid before a holy God when my life is changed by Jesus.
They surround the holy city to capture it (Revelation 20:9), and fire comes down from God out of heaven and devours them. It meansA to test an object to see if its quality is as good as others have claimed, boasted, or advertised. It is folly for us, in our ignorance, to question God's leadership, even when we may not fully understand all His reasons. People who won't accept the plain teachings of the Bible would not be convinced by a sign either.
Jesus is coming soon, but there is a lot of popular misconceptions regarding just how He's coming.
Even religious leaders are denying the plain Bible teachings of Creation, the Flood, the divinity of Christ, the second coming of Christ, and many other vital Bible truths.
Only a small percentage of the citizens of our large cities attend church services regularly, but they jam pleasure resorts by the thousands.
There is no reason to be deceived if we learn what God's book teaches about Christ's second coming.
Those who deny, ignore, or make light of Christ's second advent (as a literal, soon-coming event) are specifically fulfilling Bible prophecy--and doing the devil a very great service. If youa€™ve ever experiencedthe stress that comes from financial pressure, you know how difficult it is when you are so strapped that you dona€™t have enough money to pay your bills.A But I want to tell you that God is always faithful!
Forinstance, if you hear that a certain product is the finest of its kind in the world, it would be naturalA for you to want to check out and test the product to verify whether or not it really lives up to itsA claims. Freedom without obedience is like the false freedom of the drifting balloon or the driverless car.
So take a few minutes to understand what the Bible really says about the second coming so you won't be left behind! False christs will appear and do miracles on the earth (Matthew 24:23-27), but Jesus will remain in the clouds above the earth at His second coming. It is said that 80percent of the world's total knowledge has been brought forth in the last decade and that 90percent of all the scientists who have ever lived are alive today. Psychiatry and the traditions of pseudo-intellectuals have replaced the Bible in many religious circles.
If you are living for God, walking in holiness,A doing what the Holy Spirit has told you to do with your life, and sowing your financial seed into the soil of Goda€™s Kingdom, then you areA promised a harvest to meet the needs in your own life. Secular educators teach our youth to scoff at the Bible record of these great truths and substitute evolution and other man-made, false teachings for the plain, simple facts of God's Holy Word. Pleasure-mad Americans waste billions of hours in front of the TV set in direct fulfillment of 2 Timothy 3:4. The wisest statesmen of our time are concerned for the survival of civilization because crime sweeps forward seemingly beyond control. People who know what the Bible says about the second coming will not be led astray by Satan. If they hadna€™tA had the divine intervention of God, they would never have survived their flight from Egypt or their yearsA in the wilderness. If the Bible had not been given, people would sooner or later have discovered (by trial and error) that the great principles of the Bible exist and are true.
It does not take place at a man's death, nor is it figurative--to be manifested by better world conditions. A recent poll discovered that only two percent of American student ministers believe in the literal second coming of Christ. This is Goda€™s promise to you, and itA always works.A But what should you do when the devil is assailing your finances? His part is to work the mighty miracle within me that changes my life and prepares me for His second coming.
Ia€™m talking about those timesA when youa€™ve done everything you know to do, but you are still being financially hassled.
The second coming will be a literal, worldwide, visible, personal appearance of Christ in the clouds to bring this world to an end and to reward or punish all men and women.
Divorce rates are climbing wildly, with nearly one marriage in two ending in the divorce court. Perfect, holy, happy beings, restored once again to the perfect image of God, will at last be at home in a sinless, spotless world as God originally planned. Although you didna€™t intend to get into that financial mess, you found yourself in a situation where you needed to see the goodness of God! So the words of the Bible are not merely advice which we can accept or ignore without consequences.
The current immoral generation--with its obsession with sex and filth, with its increasing church membership but decreasing true spirituality--is plain and positive fulfillment of God's Word.
Fulfillment: This prophecy points primarily to the long period of tribulation that took place during the Dark Ages and was instigated by the apostate church. You had heard and believed that God is a supernatural Provider;therefore, in a certain sense, your situation created a moment when Goda€™s goodness and delivering power could be tested. For a real shock, see how many of the last-day sins listed in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 you can find depicted in any issue of your Sunday newspaper.
That's why Luke 17:37 speaks of the bodies of the wicked and mentions the eagles (or vultures) gathered around them. This situation would be the equivalent of you saying, a€?Lord, You say that You are a great Provider, so I need You to show me who You are! A person cannot live any way he wishes and still become godlike any more than a builder can ignore the blueprints for a house without running into trouble.
Nothing short of the coming of the Lord will stem the tide of evil that is now engulfing the world.


The word a€?proveda€? is takenA from the Greek wordA dokimadzo, which describes something that has been tested and found to be true and genuine. Often I literally feel that barrier move out of the way as the Spirit of God shoves it aside and makes an avenue for His blessings to flow into my life andministry.
It can be also translated as something that is authentic, reliable, approved, trustworthy, and real.A Moses had declared the goodness of God to the children of Israel, but each challenge they facedA gave God an opportunity to prove that He is exactly as Moses had declared Him to be.
For instance, once when we needed a new building and were desperate to find the money to pay for it, the Holy Spirit instructed us to sow a seed into someone elsea€™s building project.
Or someone elses life or vision that God has given them.A  Although the amount of money was huge to us at themoment, we knew that sowing that seed was essential if we were going to experience the financial breakthrough we needed for our own building. But in a broader sense, horao carries the idea of seeing, perceiving, understanding, experiencing, and assimilating into onea€™s self. This tells us that the children ofIsrael saw and experienced enough of Goda€™s power to fully understand and assimilate it into theirA consciousness. Candles were lighted in many houses; the birds were silent and disappeared, and the fowls retired to roost. Instead of giving in and surrendering to the attacks that are assailing you, you have to a€?put up your dukes,a€? heave backward with all your spiritual might, and throw a knockout punch at the face of the devil!
If this is true, and if you take into account that God fed His people every day for 40 years, this meansA 65,700,000 tonsA of manna supernaturally appeared on the ground over a period of forty years! Dona€™t shrink back in fear or worry; instead, make this a critical moment when you sow an extra financial seed! A This manna appeared so regularly, so faithfully, so a€?day in and day out,a€? that after a while, theA children of Israel didna€™t even think too much of it anymore.
Supernatural provision became so commonplaceA among them that they forgot how supernatural it was and began to accept it as a normal,A regular occurrence.
Helpme to sow it by faith, confidently expecting it to break the stranglehold that has been on my financial situation. Thata€™s right a€” if each Israelite ate only one quail a day, in one month it would amount to 90,000,000 quail. If they ate two quail a day, the total numberA needed to feed them all for thirty days would rise toA 180,000,000 quail. Thata€™s how many quail it took to feed that crowd of three million Israelites in a thirty-day period.
Instead of surrendering to the attacks that are assailing my finances, I am going to throw a knockout punch at the face of the devil! The thick clouds of quail must have been dense enough to nearly block the peoplea€™s view of the sun! At this critical moment, I am going to sow an extra financial seed that will break the devila€™s stranglehold on my life. Once I obey whatthe Holy Spirit is telling me to do, I will boldly command the devil to take his foul hands off my finances!
From what distance did God supernaturally call in the quail to feed the children of Israel?A This phenomenon simply could not be naturally explained. Can you think of a specific time in your life when you were under great financial stress and the Holy Spirit instructed you to sow an extra large, extra sacrificial gift into your church or into someonea€™s ministry?A 2.
It was just as miraculous as the 4,500 tons of manna that miraculously appeared on the ground everyA morning for forty years.A How about the water that came out of the rock to meet the Israelitesa€™ need for water in the wilderness? Do you have any idea how much water it would take to support three million Israelites in the blistering hot temperatures of the wilderness? Did you attribute your financial breakthrough to your bold act of giving in a difficult moment?A 3. And consider the amount of water it would have taken to adequatelyA nourish 3,000,000 people and all the animals in the hot temperatures of the wilderness. But because there was no natural source of water, it had to be provided for themA supernaturally.A So God told Moses to strike the rock (see Exodus 17). And once water started to flow, it continued to flowA and flow and flow, providing all the water needed by the people of God.
After experiencing this kind of miraculous supply on such a continual basis, they should have trusted the Lord andA found it easy to follow Him. Hadna€™t He always supernaturally provided what they needed when there was no natural provision to be found? What a privileged generation they were to see such marvelous acts of God!A But in spite of all the Israelites had seen, experienced, and assimilated about Goda€™s goodness, they became hardhearted. It was also used to describe the hardened soil of the desert a€” soil that was so hardened that water was unable to penetrate it and instead rolled right off.
Is it possible that they became calloused toA the goodness of God because He had showered them with so much goodness? The word a€?hardena€? seems to imply they becameA so calloused that nothing impressed them anymore.
No matter how much of Goda€™s Spirit was poured out on them, His Presence justA rolled off them, unable to penetrate their hard hearts.
He changed you, healed you, delivered you, rescued your family,A gave you a new job, answered your prayers, and provided for you financially time and time again,A showering you with blessing upon blessing over the years. He proved Himself again and again, repeatedlyA demonstrating that He is reliable, trustworthy, and true. ItA is true that You have showered me with nonstop blessings a€” and today I want to take thisA opportunity to thank You for every good thing Youa€™ve done in my life.
The situations I haveA faced in my life have put You to the test, and You have jumped at every chance to prove howA good You are. I have everyA reason to trust Him, for He has proven Himself to me again and again and I know He willA never let me down. As you read todaya€™s Breakfast, did you begin to think of all the times God has supernaturally provided for your own life?
It would be very beneficial for youA to take a few minutes to reflect on all the times God has miraculously suppliedA what you needed.A 2.
Have you had so many miraculous provisions in your life that youa€™ve begunA to lose your appreciation for all that God has done for you?
