Everyone be blessed!

The Promised Land represented a new life for the people of Israel who had lived a life of bondage and slavery in Egypt. It is also symbolic of a new life in Christ. It says we are no longer going to be driven by the appetites of our old nature, but Christ now lives in us to live a righteous and holy life. It does not mean we’re perfect, we’re just forgiven.

The new life in Christ has nothing to do with church attendance or even doing good things. Christ said there will be many people who will claim Him as their Savior but they never really knew Him. In other words, there was no evidence of the living Savior in them.

“Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” (Matthew 7:22-23).

Jesus invites everyone to partake of the new life He offers. We only must believe. Invite Him to remove our sins and allow Him to live as Lord through our lives.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me?” (Revelation 3:20)

Revelation: Sardis, God is All-Knowing

Posted in Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , , on July 8, 2017 by paulthepoke

Revelation 3:1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds…

Jesus knows and yes He is God the Son. He possesses the attributes of God. One of these attributes is omniscience. He is all knowing.

This is οἶδα/oida in the Greek. It means: to see or to perceive with the eyes; to perceive by any of the senses; to pay attention, observe, inspect, examine; to know of anything; get knowledge, understand, perceive of any fact. (Strong’s Concordance)

Jesus absolutely perceives and knows everything completely!

God is omniscient. God knows all things completely, including past, present, future, actual, and possible. -Chester McCalley

Psalms 147:4-5 He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.

Imagine the number and vocabulary…

 

God knows all of us personally and in great detail. His omniscience encompasses many aspects of our lives and all other topics. God knows the number of hairs on our head. He knows about all of us before we were born to the number of days appointed in our lives. The following examples in Psalm 139 demonstrate the depth of God’s knowledge as it relates to our individual lives.

Psalms 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. 

The same concept of being known to God before conception is noted in regards to the prophet Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

 

God knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows every little detail of our lives, all 7 billion plus of us on planet Earth.

Psalms 139:2-4 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all. 

Psalm 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is too high, I cannot attain to it.

Psalm 139:17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

 

God knows all things as it relates to time. His knowledge extends across all aspects of time: past, present, and future.

Past-Acts 15:18 SAYS THE LORD, WHO MAKES THESE THINGS KNOWN FROM LONG AGO.

Present-Psalm 33:13 The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men;

Future-Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.”

Hypothetical-Matthew 11:23 And you people of Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be brought down to the place of the dead. For if the miracles I did for you had been done in Sodom, it would still be here today.

 

There are no secrets with God.

Psalm 90:8 You have placed our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your presence.

Trend Update: UNESCO Rejects Jewish Ties to Temple Mount, October 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on October 14, 2016 by paulthepoke

October 13, 2016: The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted to deny recognition of religious sites on the Temple Mount to the Jewish people. The UN stated the Temple Mount belongs to the Muslims.

The Scripture reference is the Bible, never mind over 3,000 years of history and archeological evidence that ties the Hebrew people to the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and Israel.

Never mind Islam did not start until 610 AD…

The following countries voted for the ban: Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, and Vietnam.

Next are the countries with the attitude of the Laodicea church in Revelation. These countries chose to abstain. Get off the fence and make a stand one way or the other. Revelation 3:15-16 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. -Jesus

The following countries refused to vote on the ban: Albania, Argentina, Cameroon, El Salvador, France, Ghana, Greece, Guinea, Haiti, India, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Paraguay, Saint Vincent and Nevis, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Togo, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, and Ukraine.

The following countries supported Israel: United States, Great Britain, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Germany, and Estonia.

http://www.jpost.com/Breaking-News/UNESCO-No-connection-between-Temple-Mount-and-Judaism-470050

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

History says this is a bad foreign policy move for countries voting against Israel.

Oh by the way, the Bible says there is going to be a third Jewish Temple.
