It is within the confusion, struggle and chaos of these voices (every daya€¦ or even moment by moment), clamoring around us, pressing us, demeaning us, cajoling us and condemning us, that we barely hear another Voice quietly speaking in the depths of our spirit.
All of us have felt this tension and sadness of struggles in ourselves and with the world around us. Our life is not one which just includes a routine of living our life, going to work, having hobbies, getting some things, finding some friends, getting married, having kids, retiring and dying. Only Three Possibilities of lifea€¦any it may be in our understanding of where we came from that gives us meaning in life, or takes that meaning away (as noted by Francis Schaefer). Nothing made us a€“ we are fools made by enormous mistakes with no purpose whatsoever except selfishness, death and annihilation. A Personal Creator made us, knows all about us, loves us, redeems us from sin, and has an eternal plan for us! Choose what is most comforting to your mind given the fact that we are inexplicably alive, thinking, reasoning people who eat organic food to live longer, make fantastic computers, build Hubble telescopes, and send astronauts into space (but have no ability ourselves to create life or life-sustaining planetsa€¦in our home galaxy - the Milky Way). God, the Creator of heaven and earth, looks at His Children with loving Parenta€™s Eyes, according to the most revered, most published, and most affirmed Book in the history of the world a€“ the Bible. Those who, in faith, accept the reality of Goda€™s Voice and apply its blessing to their lives, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, will find a peace that passes understanding.
Those who continue to listen to and believe the chaotic, confusing and demeaning voices of the world, flesh and devil surrounding them, will find themselves caught up and ever drawn toward the destructive vortex of the sinister tornado of spiritual deception and death that entangles and destroys the souls on the wide road of life, leading to destruction. Today we are looking at three ways that God sees us as His Childrena€¦it may give us a different way of seeing ourselves even though there can be overwhelming pressure in the loud din of the world, flesh and devil surrounding us!
When we look at the Bible and see pictures of who we are as Believers in Jesus Christ, in Goda€™s Eyes, it might be hard to perceive this spiritual dimension clearly.
12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
I recently found this article in the news about the problems of certifying onea€™s Jewish heritage in Israel. The ultra-orthodox coalition is lobbying for the bill to only authorize the top ultra-orthodox rabbis to authenticate who is Jewish and who is not. How would you like it if only the pastors of a church or executive leaders of a denomination decided if you were a true Christian or not?
Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul had to deal with in a legalistic Jewish system when they were on the earth. The Scriptures declare that becoming a Christian is by grace through faith alone a€¦not of doing certain things, or not doing certain things a€“ a€?worksa€? we call it a€“ lest we proudly boast about what we have done to prove the certainty of our salvation! The book of James clearly asserts that good works reveal, or affirm Goda€™s grace and saving faith, but are not the cause of salvation! God looks on those who believe in Jesus Christ as Aliens in this World, but Fellow Citizens with Goda€™s Saints from the foundation of the world.
God gives those who believe on and receive Christ for the remission of sins, the right to become Children of God a€“ God looks on us as His Children. 10 He (Jesus) was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. God looks on us as those for whom He has prepared a place and who will receive His inheritance. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, a€?Abba! 29 And if you are Christa€™s, then you are Abrahama€™s offspring, heirs according to promise. 5 he (God) saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
15 Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant. 19 And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someonea€™s own interpretation.
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. We will be approved by God and unashamed as His servants, if we honorably know and respond to His Word. 14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.


Being Student of the Word of Life, the Bible, means that what we follow is not always the latest fad. If we are going to know what the Bible says about our daily life, we must find out what the Bible teaches about God and how we should live. Since God looks on us as His Children, Fellow Citizens with His Saints throughout the history of the world, and since He has promised to give His Children their Eternal Inheritance, we should be Students of His Word, honorable to Him, following the truth of His Word, seeking the leading of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives, and reaching out to bring others who do not know Him, into the eternal blessing of His Kingdom! Anne Juliana Gonzaga became a Servant of Mary following the death of her husband, Ferdinand II, Archduke of Austria in 1595, after receiving a vision of the Madonna, to whom her parents had prayed to cure her of a childhood illness? 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. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Father!a€? 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirsa€”heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. 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. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near.
12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 2 Beloved, we are Goda€™s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 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.
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.
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
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. 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. 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. 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.
His part is to work the mighty miracle within me that changes my life and prepares me for His second coming.
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.
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.
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. Nothing short of the coming of the Lord will stem the tide of evil that is now engulfing the world. Candles were lighted in many houses; the birds were silent and disappeared, and the fowls retired to roost.
