"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
(1 Corinthians 13:13 NKJV)
The Greatest of These
Greetings! You may or may not be familiar with, 1 Corinthians 13, in the Bible, commonly referred to as "the love chapter". In essence the theme of the chapter is; "What ever you do, if you don't do it in love, it is meaningless in the eyes of God." "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."(1 John 4:8) We recently received a prophecy someone received, regarding love, which we thought could be a benefit to us all.
Following the prophecy is an additional discourse regarding this topic of love.
"It says that if you do all those things, but don't have love, it profits you nothing. No profit = no good. That means that things done without love, or things accomplished at the cost of showing love and compassion and care for others, are unprofitable work--a waste of time, idle work, useless work, work no better in My eyes than the idle words you'll have to give account for.
No profit means that it didn't help you any. You might think that your haste and hurry and the lacks in your kindness and consideration of others will be justified in the end, but they won't be. The end will not justify the means.
You can rush through life "getting stuff done," but you will have failed if you don't take time to care for others, to love them, to be Me for them, and to even delay the more important things you have to do in order to show those immediately around you that you care about them and their needs and that they matter to you."
Following is an additional entry entitled "The Fruits of the Spirit" which is also very convicting.
"There's nothing that can compensate for a lack of love. There are no works that you can do which will make it okay that you didn't care for those around you. And since you cannot make up for a lack of love, the only solution, if you want your life to amount to anything in the next world, is to show that love. Love is life. Love is the only way to live. The greatest of these is love."
"The Fruits of the Spirit"
"Love is very patient. It is able to endure waiting or being delayed without becoming annoyed or upset. It can persevere calmly when faced with difficulties. It's able to tolerate difficult circumstances. It can tolerate being hurt, provoked, or annoyed, without complaint or loss of temper.
Love is kind. It has a generous and warm nature. It shows compassion. It has sympathy for the suffering of others, and it shows a desire to help them. It shows courtesy and cares about others.
Love is never jealous. It doesn't feel suspicious about a rival's or competitor's influence. It doesn't get suspicious about others in regard to a loved one. It doesn't demand excessive loyalty.
Love is never envious. It doesn't have the resentful or unhappy feeling of wanting someone else's success, or good fortune, their qualities, or their possessions. It doesn't compare with others.
Love is never boastful. It doesn't make proud statements. It doesn't say or write something that praises yourself. It doesn't arrogantly refer to your possessions or your achievements.
Love is never proud. It doesn't have feelings of superiority or a haughty attitude, believing--often unjustifiably--that you are better than others. It doesn't have an exaggerated opinion of your own personal worth or abilities.
Love is never haughty. It doesn't behave in a superior, condescending, or arrogant way.
Love is never selfish. It's not concerned with your own interests, needs, and wishes, while ignoring those of others.
Love is never rude. It's not ill-mannered. It's not disagreeable or discourteous in manner or action.
Love does not demand its own way.
Love is not irritable or touchy. It isn't easily annoyed or exasperated. It's not likely to become, or to make someone else, angry or upset.
Love does not hold grudges; it doesn't hold feelings of resentment or ill will.
Love is never glad about unfair treatment that others experience. It's happy when the truth comes out and it solves such matters."
My loving keys will help you to see the needs of others and respond enthusiastically with warmth, tenderness, and affection.
Of course, a lack of love in the world is one of the things Jesus mentioned as a sign of the End Time, in which we are living. In His famous prophetic talk in, Matthew 24, verse 12: "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold".
For you who follow current events in relation to End Time events there continues to be portents on many different fronts. Virtually everywhere you look you can see we are getting closer and closer to the rise of the antichrist, and his one world government. Are we to despair when we see these things coming to pass? Absolutely not, Jesus said; "When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28) That means He is coming back soon, very soon, to save us out of this world, destroy the antichrist and his followers, and set up His thousand year reign here on earth.
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
"The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea." (Isaiah 11:9) And we know how the waters cover the sea --they cover the sea completely!
If you do not already have an understanding of the last seven years and the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem you may want to take the time to study, Daniel 9, in the studies section on the site.
(As of 9:00 PM Rome time there has been no update on this story. When and if there is an update we will post it here. Even if the story is proven to be incorrect one thing it does show us is some of the current thinking involving End Time events.)
Hark! Where's the Bible Ark?
Ethiopia's Orthodox patriarch cops out on revealing plan for public viewing
June 26, 2009
The leader of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church today backed off on a much-anticipated announcement about the Ark of the Covenant -- the ancient container holding the Ten Commandment -- which he claims to have seen.
But no other evidence or, indeed, even any announcement, was made public today when word had been expected.
Ark hunters and Bible enthusiasts have been buzzing for two days on the report from the Italian news agency Adnkronos that Patriarch Abuna Pauolos, in Italy for a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI this week, said, "Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the tablets of the law that God delivered to Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries."
He had suggested the possibility the artifact might be viewable in a planned museum.
"I repeat (the Ark of the Covenant) is in Ethiopia and nobody ... knows for how much time. Only God knows," he said in the Adnkronos report available online.
The report said Pauolos reported the artifact "is described perfectly in the Bible" and is in good condition.
"The state of conservation is good because it is not made from man's hand, but is something that God has made," Pauolos said, according to the report.
The agency had reported an announcement would be made at the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome, and a hotel spokeswoman told WND Pauolos had been in residence there, but no news conference or event was scheduled.
Bob Cornuke, biblical investigator, international explorer and best-selling author, has participated in more than 27 expeditions around the world searching for lost locations described in the Bible. A man some consider a real-life Indiana Jones, he has written a book titled "Relic Quest" about the Ark of the Covenant and participated in History Channel production called "Digging for Truth."
Next week, Cornuke will travel to Ethiopia for the 13th time since he began his search for the Ark. He told WND he believes it is possible Ethiopia could have the real artifact.
"They either have the Ark of the Covenant or they have a replica that they have believed to be the Ark of the Covenant for 2,000 years," he said.
Cornuke said he traveled to Tana Qirqos Island and lived with monks who remain there even today.
"They unlocked this big, four-inch thick wood door," he said. "It opened up to a treasure room, and they showed me meat forks and bowls and things that they say are from Solomon's temple. When the History Channel did this show, they said it was one of the largest viewed shows. People were fascinated."
He said Ethiopians consider the Ark to be the ultimate holy object, and the church guards the suspected artifact from the "eyes and pollution of man."
"In Ethiopia, their whole culture is centered around worshipping this object," Cornuke said. "Could they have the actual Ark? I think I could make a case that they actually could."
But according to a statement delivered to WND by the webmaster for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, there is no chance that the religious leaders and people in the nation will give up their custody of what they believe is the Ark.
"I think Abba Pauolos must be out of his mind. ... An (artifact) should not be shown or touched other than the clergies but to put it on display is a reckless comment let alone doing it," the statement said. "Not only the local clergies but the people of Ethiopia won't allow it and it is not going to happen."
The webmaster noted there were artifacts moved from Ethiopia to Britain over the years, and even those are not allowed to be displayed.
Pauolos in the Adnkronos report said any display would need the approval of the supreme court of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
Cornuke explained that a special guardian lives inside the church which reportedly holds the Ark and never leaves. Once a guardian is appointed, he stays until he dies and another man replaces him.
"We know for a fact that there have been 30 guardians in history who have never left that enclosure," Cornuke said. "I know the guardian. When CNN and BBC went over there, he wouldn't see anybody but me. So I went and talked to him, and he's getting very aged. He told me they have the real Ark and he worships 13 hours a day in front of it. When he gets through, he is covered in sweat and he's exhausted."
He said he met a 105-year-old man who claimed to have seen the Ark 50 years ago when he was training a replacement guardian.
"It frightened him to death when he got a glimpse of it."
Cornuke said he also met with the president of Ethiopia nearly nine years ago and had a one-on-one conversation with him in his palace. He asked if Ethiopia had the Ark of the Covenant.
According to Cornuke, the president responded: "Yes, we do. I am the president, and I know. It's not a copy. It's the real thing."
Tennessee historian and "Time is the Ally of Deceit" author Richard Rives, searched for the Ark and participated in excavations beneath Mount Moriah outside the walls of ancient Jerusalem. His group was trying to verify claims by relic hunter Ron Wyatt that he actually saw the Ark there several decades ago after tunneling through a small passageway.
Many theories exist about the ultimate fate of the Ark, including that it has been hidden in a still unknown location, it was destroyed by enemies of the Israelites, taken by Egyptian invaders to Egypt or removed by divine intervention.
The quest for the artifact received additional publicity in 1981 when actor Harrison Ford searched for it in Steven Spielberg's "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
Bible's 'Ark of the Covenant' about to be unveiled?
Ethiopian patriarch tells pope he will show artifact to world
Posted: June 24, 2009
The patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia says he will announce to the world Friday the unveiling of the Ark of the Covenant, perhaps the world's most prized archaeological and spiritual artifact, which he says has been hidden away in a church in his country for millennia, according to the Italian news agency Adnkronos. - -
Abuna Pauolos, in Italy for a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI this week, told the news agency, "Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the tablets of the law that God delivered to Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries."
- - The announcement is expected to be made at 2 p.m. Italian time from the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome. Pauolos will reportedly be accompanied by Prince Aklile Berhan Makonnen Haile Sellassie and Duke Amedeo D'Acosta.
"The Ark of the Covenant is in Ethiopia for many centuries," said Pauolos. "As a patriarch I have seen it with my own eyes and only few highly qualified persons could do the same, until now."
- According to Pauolos, the actual Ark has been kept in one church, but to defend the treasure, a copy was placed in every single church in Ethiopia.
He said a museum is being built in Axum, Ethiopia, where the Ark will be displayed. A foundation of D'Acosta will fund the project. -
The Ark of the Covenant is the sacred container of the Ten Commandments as well as Aaron's rod and a sample of manna, the mysterious food that kept the Israelites alive while wandering in the wilderness during their journey to the promised land. - -
The Bible says the Ark was built to the specifications of God as He spoke to Moses. It was carried in advance of the people and their army by priests. It was also carried in a seven-day procession around the walled city of Jericho.
The idea that the Ark is presently in Ethiopia is a well-documented, albeit disputed, tradition dating back to at least 642 B.C. The tradition says it was moved to Elephantine Island in Egypt, then to Tana Kirkos Island in Ethiopia and finally to its present site at St. Mary's of Zion Church in Axum. - - Ethiopians believe it is destined to be delivered to the Messiah when He reigns on Mount Zion - the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. - -
Jeremiah 3:16 points to a time when the Ark will vanish not only physically, but from the minds of the people: "And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more." - -
The Book of Revelation says the Ark is in the temple of God in heaven (Rev. 11:19).
Muslim scholars say it will be found near the end of times by the Mahdi - a messianic figure in Islam.

A New Vision for God's Holy Mountain
By Ohr Margalit - Bar-Ilan University in Israel
June 10, 2009
As the Obama Administration pursues the latest peace initiative in the Mideast amid renewed world hopes, it will ultimately face once again the seemingly intractable issue of the future status of the Temple Mount (Al Haram Al Sharif in Arabic). Situated in the center of Jerusalem, it is the site of the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque, sacred to Islam, and also the site of long-held aspirations by Jews for a rebuilt temple as expressed to this day in daily prayers.
Contention about this spot is incongruous given its shared spiritual significance for Jews, Muslims and Christians alike. The Dome stands at the place where all three religions believe that Abraham was prepared to sacrifice his son before an angel stayed his hand. The Jewish Temple, from the initial consecration address by King Solomon onwards, was always intended to manifest the One God for all, Jew and non-Jew alike, as well as the universal ideal of God's moral order reigning supreme. References in sacred Jewish texts and history to the role of non-Jews in the Temple are numerous and striking.
But this sanctified spot was subsequently tarnished by the destruction of the first and second temples, the latter by the Roman general Titus in the year 70 preceded by deadly infighting of Jew against Jew. In modern times, the Camp David negotiations of 2000 broke down in part over the issue of the Temple Mount, and the second intifada that followed was sparked by a violent incident there. Given the conventional assumption that Jewish law mandates the spot of the Dome as the site of a future rebuilt temple, avoidance of this topic by all mainstream religious bodies is understandable. But it remains a central, if unspoken, obstacle to a peace settlement.
A recent article published in the leading journal of religious law in Israel, Tehumin, however, opens the potential for restoring this now-contentious spot to its original sacred role as God's Holy Mountain, a house of prayer for all people (Isaiah 56:7). Although the arguments are detailed and technical, the main point is that Jewish doctrine regarding the rebuilding of the temple emphasizes the role of a prophet (one deemed authentic by contemporaneous sages) who would have extraordinary authority, including the discretion to specify the temple's precise location, regardless of any diverging Jewish traditions.
This article considers the scenario of a holy revelation given to an authentic prophet that the temple be rebuilt on the current or an extended Temple Mount in peaceful proximity to the Dome, Al Aqsa Mosque, and nearby Christian shrines. According to Jewish law, the article concludes, such a prophetic mandate would then be binding. It would also be in keeping with the words of the 12th Century Jewish sage Maimonides that Christianity and Islam are part of God's ultimate plan "to direct the entire world to worship God together." Interestingly, Theodore Herzl, the preeminent secular Zionist, detailed the same vision for a rebuilt temple in peaceful proximity to Islamic and Christian shrines on what he called "the holy region of mankind."
While compromise is admirable in the pursuit of peace, a rebuilt temple according to this vision would be nothing of the kind. It would be the radical fulfillment of God's original mandate to the Jewish people and of the original purpose of the Temple, to manifest the One God to the world. This would be more powerfully accomplished with Christian and Muslim shrines nearby along with the pilgrims that visit them. At the very same time, with a rebuilt Temple in peaceful proximity, Allah would be more powerfully manifested in the Dome and in the Al Aqsa Mosque, and likewise for God, the Prince of Peace, in surrounding churches. All would occur simultaneously because the world would then understand and embrace the prophecy of Zechariah 14:9, "On that day, God will be One and His Name One."
These initial findings and the painting of this vision will be presented at a launching event on June 18 in Jerusalem, sponsored by the Interfaith Encounter Association. This event will be preceded by a separate panel discussion among distinguished rabbis, sheikhs and Christian clergy about this prophetic verse. We hope that among other potential ultimate developments, ensuing dialogue and study can further the understanding that Jews, Muslims and Christians were put together in the Mideast not to acquiesce in conflict instigated by tyrants throughout history but to fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 14:9.
Ohr Margalit, Ph.D., teaches rabbinic studies at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, is a former Harry Starr fellow at Harvard, and directs the study project described here.
About The painting
It is a normal future day on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Jews, Muslims and Christians, entering through the Gate of Mercy, are waiting for services to begin, respectively, at the Temple, at the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque, and at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Friends of all three religions and from around the world greet each other, and some gather around an informal group of musicians from the three faiths who are playing together. The Temple Mount has shed the remnants of destruction and conflict left by the Roman Empire and is once again is a joyous place, in which all worship in their respective holy buildings, but bearing witness to the same One God, creator of all.
Features of note in the painting.
Jews, Muslims, Christians, and others from around the world are entering the Temple Mount through the Gate of Mercy, which has special significance as a symbol of redemption in all three religions. The stream, shown running along the Temple, is as mentioned in a prophecy of Ezekiel, but also allows the possibility that the Temple is built on a possible extension of the Temple Mount, mentioned too in prophecies. The ambiguity concerning the stream is complemented by a deliberate ambiguity concerning the location of the Temple shown in the image. Key elements of the painting, including the Gate of Mercy, the Garden Tomb (a key Protestant shrine), and several recognizable buildings shown in the Jerusalem skyline, are all from different directions, North, South, East and West, to be clear that no particular orientation is being specified in the image.
Jews are shown entering the Gate of Mercy and turning left toward the Temple. Muslims are shown turning right from the Gate of Mercy toward the Dome of the Rock, while some Muslims are shown passing by the Dome of the Rock on their way to the Al Aqsa Mosque. Christians are shown coming from the right side of the painting towards the Church of Holy Sepulcher and also toward the Garden Tomb, which as noted above, is shown here in an anomalous position, however, some Christians enter the Temple Mount through the Gate of Mercy. Some Jews, Muslims, Christians and others as well divert from their groups walking toward their respective shines, to mix with friends of different faiths in various informal clusters scattered through the Temple Mount. One of these mixed clusters of people is shown in the foreground, gathered around a group of musicians.
The musicians shown consist of, left to right (standing) a Christian playing a tambourine, a Jew playing a violin, a Muslim playing a trumpet, and (sitting) a Jew playing a harp, and a Muslim playing a Qanun (a traditional Arabic instrument.) The thirteen people gathered around the musicians are meant to represent a mixture of Jews, Muslims, Christians and others from around the world, as are the six children dancing to the right. The number 13 is the numerical value of the word "one" (echad) in Hebrew, thus symbolizing their unity, and with the musicians they add up to 18 people, which is the numerical value of the word Chai in Hebrew, which means "living" or "life". Among the buildings shown in the skyline of Jerusalem, in anomalous locations, are the Supreme Court of Israel, the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus (top right), and buildings from the Technology Park from the south of the city. -
Bankster "Holiday" Planned for September?
June 22, 2009
Bob Chapman's influential International Forecaster is reporting on the possibility of a so-called "bank holiday" planned for late August or early September. According to Chapman's sources, U.S. embassies around the world are selling dollars and stockpiling money from respective countries where they operate.
"Some US embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies," writes Harry Schultz, "enough to last them a year." Schultz publishes the Harry Schultz Letter, an international investment, financial, economic, and geopolitical newsletter named as "Newsletter of the Year" by Peter Brimelow of Market Watch in 2005 and 2008.
(HSL, International Harry Schultz Letter, is the world's premier international investment, financial, economic, geopolitical, privacy, sociological and philosophical newsletter. HSL is now in its 41st year with subscribers in 71 nations. In addition to decades of money-making investment advice in all major world stock, bond, commodities, and currencies markets. Based in Switzerland, HSL is one of the few truly international investment newsletters.)
Schultz believes the global elite are in the process of engineering an FDR-style "bank holiday" of undetermined length in order to "sort-out the bank mess" and impose new bank rules.
On March 5, 1933, in the depths of the banker engineered "Great Depression," newly elected Franklin Roosevelt declared a "bank holiday" that forced banks closed for four days. Roosevelt then rammed the Emergency Banking Act through the legislature. Passed by Congress on March 9, the act granted FDR near dictatorial control over the dealings of banks. It also allowed the Secretary of the Treasury the power to compel every person and business in the country to relinquish their gold and accept paper currency in exchange.
On March 10, Roosevelt issued Executive Order No. 6073, forbidding people from sending gold overseas and forbidding banks from paying out gold. A few weeks later, on April 5, Roosevelt issued Executive Order No. 6102 ordering Americans to deliver their gold and gold certificates to the Federal Reserve bank in exchange for paper fiat money.
As Schultz notes, another forced "bank holiday" will likely lead to a formal devaluation of the already broadsided U.S. dollar. "But devalue against what? The euro? Doubtful. Gold? Maybe. Or vs. the IMF basket of currencies," which he feels is more likely.
In fact, this is precisely what the globalist have in mind. In March, the media reported the IMF was poised print billions of "global quantitative easing" dollars to be dubbed global "super-currency" to address the economic crisis. "The principle behind it is that everyone would get bonus dollars and instead of the Federal Reserve having to print them, everyone gets them," declared Simon Johnson, former chief economist at the IMF.
It is no secret the elite have envisioned a global currency for some time now. In 2007, the director of international economics at the Council on Foreign Relations stated that the dollar and the euro are but temporary currencies. "It is the market that made the dollar into global money - and what the market giveth, the market can taketh away. If the tailors balk and the dollar falls, the market may privatize money on its own," Benn Steil pontificated.
Richard N. Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, has said, "states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies if the international system is to function."
Mr. Schultz believes a "bank holiday" would suit the burning desires of the international bankster elite. It will lead to "nationalization".
Nationalization is the unfettered process of grabbing up of insurance companies, mortgage companies, banks, medical care, and car companies and handing them over to the monopoly men.
During the FDR "bank holiday," Schulz notes, "thousands of banks never reopened; it was a face-saving way of shutting them down. I would guess the same would occur today; thousands have little or no net value, loaded with debt, bad mortgages."
In order soften the nation up for the coming pillage, the Obama administration has proposed a plan to give the privately-owned and unaccountable Federal Reserve complete regulatory oversight across the entire U.S. economy. The new rules would see the Fed given the authority to "regulate" any company whose activity it believes could threaten the economy and the markets -- that is to say if it "threatens" the monopolistic interests of the bankers.
"Obama's regulatory 'reform' plan is nothing less than a green light for the complete and total takeover of the United States by a private banking cartel that will usurp the power of existing regulatory bodies, who are now being blamed for the financial crisis in order that their status can be abolished and their roles handed over to the all-powerful Fed," write Paul Joseph and Steve Watson.
A "bank holiday" would work wonders for any "regulation" the Fed and the bankers have in mind. It would compliment the criminal consolidation now underway. It would allow them to finally and formally devalue the dollar and usher in a global "super currency" of control and enslavement.
If Mr. Schultz's prediction is correct, we can expect riots in bank foyers and ultimately martial law to be imposed.
FDA Threatens to Seize All Natural Products that Dare to Mention H1N1 Swine Flu
June 18, 2009
In an effort to censor any online text that might inform consumers of the ability of natural products to protect consumers from H1N1 influenza A, the FDA is now sending out a round of warning letters, threatening to "take enforcement action... such as seizure or injunction for violations of the FFDC Act without further notice."
"Firms that fail to take correction action," the FDA warns, "may also be referred to the FDA's Office of Criminal Investigations for possible criminal prosecution for violations of the FFDC Act and other federal laws."
The message is crystal clear: No product may be described as protecting against or preventing H1N1 infections unless it is approved by the FDA. And which products has the FDA approved? Tamiflu (the anti-viral drug that most people will never have access to), and soon the new H1N1 vaccine that's being manufactured at a cost of one billion dollars (paid to Big Pharma by the taxpayers).
In other words, according to the FDA, the only products that may be marketed alongside the term "H1N1â€³ are those products that either don't work or aren't available to most people. Anything that really works to prevent influenza infections -- such as natural anti-virals, medicinal herbs, etc. -- is banned from even mentioning H1N1 without the threat of being criminally prosecuted.
Are you ready for the continued unfolding of End Time events. Your first step in getting ready, if you have not already done so, is to make sure you have received Jesus as your way out of this insane world.
Jesus said: "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also". (John 14:1-3)
Paul, in 1 Corinthians, chapter 15, verses 51- 57, moved by the Holy Spirit said: "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
And Peter said in llPeter 3:9; "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance".
This is an absolute, Jesus is returning, and returning soon. If you want to make sure that you do not miss out on the greatest event in the history of the world, the resurrection and rapture, all you have to do is receive Jesus as your savior.
All this requires is praying a simple child like prayer: Dear Jesus, I know I have done wrong and sinned against you and others. I ask you to please come into my heart, forgive my sin, and give me eternal life so that I can be assured of being part of the rapture and resurrection, in Jesus name, amen.
If you would like to know more about eternal life, we invite you to write us via the web site, or if you would like to have one of our mystics peer beyond the veil for a question or problem you may have, please also contact us via the web site.
Have a love filled week.
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins".
(1 Peter 4:8 NKJV)
