Exekiel 33:2-7
2. Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: 3. If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; 4. Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. 6. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. 7. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
John 3:6-8
6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Acts 2:1-47
1. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8. And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9. Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10. Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11. Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12. And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? 13. Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. 14. But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 15. For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17. And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18. And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19. And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: 21. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22. Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 23. Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24. Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. 25. For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26. Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27. Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29. Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31. He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. 32. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 35. Until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38. Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. 40. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41. Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44. And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45. And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47. Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
Acts 10:25-48
25. And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. 26. But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man. 27. And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together. 28. And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. 29. Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me? 30. And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, 31. And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. 32. Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee. 33. Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God. 34. Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35. But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. 36. The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) 37. That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 39. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: 40. Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; 41. Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. 42. And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. 43. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. 44. While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45. And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47. Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48. And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days
Psalms 5:9
9. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with thier tongue.
Psalms 109:2
2. For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceifful are opened against me; they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
Isaiah 6:3-7
3. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me
James 3:5-9
5. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6. And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8. But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
Proverbs 16:1-5
1. The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. 2. All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. 3. Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. 4. The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. 5. Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
 This next verse is very deep and we have got to watch what we say, not only about ourselves, our children and family. What we say from our mouth can be formed and created with our tongue, and create whatever we say ,on someone's life.
Proverbs 18:21
21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof
Proverbs 21:23
23: Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
1 Corinthians 14:1-40
1. Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. 2. For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.3. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 5. I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. 6. Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine? 7. And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? 8. For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? 9. So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air. 10. There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. 11. Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me. 12. Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. 13. Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. 14. For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. 16. Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest? 17. For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified. 18. I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: 19. Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. 20. Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men. 21. In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. 22. Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. 23. If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? 24. But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: 25. And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth. 26. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. 27. If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. 28. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. 29. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 30. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 32. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 34. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. 35. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. 36. What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? 37. If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. 38. But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 39. Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 40. Let all things be done decently and in order.
   In the book of 1st Peter, Peter talked about the prophets of old having the Spirit of Jesus Christ in them, foretelling the time when He’d actually come on this earth to shed his blood for mankind. If the Spirit is separate from the Father and Son, how could the prophets have the Spirit of Christ in them, before He was born? There's only one Spirit. The old prophets desired to see and understand these mysteries they prophesied about. It also says, the angels longed to look into these matters.
  I want to show you one of the mysteries they wanted to see. Acts 2:38 and John 3:5, is not the Apostles doctrine, all of the New Testament, is the Apostles doctrine. When we put all this together and put all the evidence together, then we can come to a more sure word of prophecy and a more solid foundation, for what ever doctrine you want to espouse. Most ministers preach about the godhead, but I'll say this, The godhead according to Genesis 1:26, when it said, "Let us make man in our own image", there's a lot more to that, than just understanding the unity of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, because, the true unity concerning this, it was a prophetic statement, that you will find in
John 17:21-23. It says,
"That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me, and the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one, I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
  The manifestation of the godhead is suppose to be through us. The apex of the revelation is, the godhead, manifested in a body of people, so that the world will see the godhead manifested amongst men and they will believe, that there's a God in Zion. We are in a since like chemistry, it's called diffusion. You take a small little ink drop, put it on a piece of paper set in water and it will begin to diffuse out. God has invested in you and me and each of us, His Spirit, so that we can diffuse and permeate the world. Then we can be a lively stone and a true witness before the living God. Therefore the godhead is not up there, it's in us, manifesting itself unto the world. That is how it was suppose to have been in the beginning. "Let us, make man, in OUR image! How will that really manifest in the last days? In Romans 8th chapter, we are told something quite profound. It also bears witness in Act 3:21. This is called the restitution of all things. God is going to restore all things, the way they were in the beginning. Adam was created perfect, he was created to be immortal, and when he sinned, he went into mortality. But, when the rapture takes place, we will be transformed from mortal to immortal, the reversal of the process. In Romans 8:22 it says, the whole earth, it moans and groans and is trevailing like a woman with child. It is waiting for the redemption of the manifest sons of God. Who are these sons of God? This is the remnant that God will raise up in the last days, because, the rocks, they know, and the dirt know, that at one time, it did not have any bacteria, it didn't have anything that would decay, it had nothing that broke down. There was no death, there was no sickness or disease at the beginning. The rocks know, that when God manifest himself through the fullness of the godhead in the earth, when that happens, it knows that they will also be redeemed. Because, even the rocks must be delivered from their decadent state, created because of man's sin. When man, the apex of creation fell, everything went with him. God cannot have temporal man and eternal plants. God cannot have temporal man and eternal animals. The whole world and all creation changed with man. When will this happen? When death is swallowed up in victory. When will this happen? When the Lord shall restore all things the way they were, because the creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. A continuation of this mystery is also located in Ephesians 4th chapter. We as the church are suppose to measure up to the stature of Christ and be one, as the body of Christ. This is truly the definition of being a Christian or Christ like and the sons of God. Once we truly have measured up to the stature of Christ and are one, is when healings take place, when signs and wonders take place, demons are cast out, people are raised from the dead and people are made whole. 
  In Revelation 7:3, the angel is told not to hurt the earth or sea until the servants of God are sealed. It's interesting how the Jehovah Witnesses and others interpret Revelation 7:3-4, about the 144,000, and the multitude that is found there. The Jehovah Witnesses say, This is the number of how many that will be saved and are going to heaven. It's also interesting, how John never saw the 144,000. If you read the text closely in verse 4, he heard the number of them. Then, if we go to verse 9, John saw a blood washed multitude, that no man could number, out of every people, nations and tongues. They were all washed in white and they came out of the great tribulation. They all overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. These are all saints.
  When we start putting together, John 17 and Ephesians 4, along with the 144,000 mystery, I'll show you that the New Jerusalem in revelations, is actually the church (bride).  Let's look in Revelation 21:2, John see's the New Jerusalem coming down from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. In Revelation 21:9, one of the angels with the seven vials, tells John, Let me show you the bride, the Lamb's wife. Then, in verse ten, he show's him, the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. On her were twelve gates (the names of the 12 tribes of Israel), and she had twelve foundations (the names of 12 apostles) and she had precious stones and jewels, and she was foursquare, twelve thousand times twelve thousand, times twelve thousand, a perfect dimension, the dimensions of a man. This is the same man that is mentioned in John 17 and Ephesians 4. When we (the church) come into the unity of the faith and the knowledge of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the fullness of Christ, then are we perfect in Him(foursquare). But, I thought the angel was going to show John the bride? Why is he showing him a city? Because we are the city (the new Jerusalem), of the living God. This column is by the inspiration of Bishop Clarence B. Harris. In 2007, I was back and forth between Atlanta and New Orleans working. My father who passed in 2006 had a huge collection of cassette tapes he recorded over the years while traveling to different conferences around the country.  My sister gave me all these cassettes and I would listen to them while traveling the road back and forth to home. At that time is when I really started getting in my word. I would listen to a tape and would think, don't like this one and don't like that one. I went through a hundred or so tapes, before one really peaked my interest. After listening to Bishop Harris on the cassette, I decided I was going to track him down and find out where he lives and get a phone number on him. Come to find out, he only lives an hour and a half from me. The reason I was so interested is because he was talking about subjects that God was opening my eyes to, unlike some of the other cassettes. He helped to solidify what God was showing me and I wasn't crazy. I want to share his sermon with you. I had to do it in three parts because of the size of it. You can click on the audio to listen to Bishop Harris's sermon: Part 1

Ephesians 3:17-18
17. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18. May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Isaiah 60:14
14. The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee; The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel
Matthew 5:14
14. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Isaiah 62:12   
12. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city
not forsaken.
Daniel 9:19
19. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.
2 Corinthians 5:1-4
1. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3. If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
Hebrews 11:8-10
8. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10. For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
1 Peter 1:10-12
10. Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, 11. trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. 12. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.
Ephesians 4:4-24
4. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6.One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 7.But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10.He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11.And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12. For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14. That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15. But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16. From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. 17. This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18. Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19.Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20.But ye have not so learned Christ; 21. If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22.That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24. And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
John 17:12-26
12. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16.They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21.That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Revelation 7:3-4
3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Revelation 7:9
9. After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Revelation 21:9-22
9. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11. Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12. And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13. On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20. The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a-* topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 22. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
1 Corinthians 15:52-54
52. 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. 53. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality 54. 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.
Romans 8:14-23
14. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16.The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17. And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 18. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
Revelation 21:7
7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Acts 3:20-21
20. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21. Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Phillipians 2:9-11                                                                                                                 
9. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11.And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Psalms 82:6
6. I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
John 10:33-34
33. The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. 34. Jesus answered them, is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scriptures cannot be broken;
1 Corinthians 12:13
13. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
 On thing that was real subtle but I didn't let it go unnoticed, is in John 10:34, when talking about what was written in the law, Jesus said, I said, ye are gods. Evidently the Pharisees didn't pick it up. Jesus was telling them, He (the Spirit that was in Him) gave the law to Moses.
Isaiah 42:8-9 & 13  
8. I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. 9. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.                                                             
13. The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
Colossians 2:6                                                                                                                            
6. As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:            
  In using the name of Jesus Christ, there is power in these words and His name. Using Father, Son and Holy Ghost doesn’t have power, if it did, you would have seen the Apostles casting out demons and healing in that name. One day, the apostle John was telling Jesus about a man that cast out demons and he wasn’t part of their following, and he should refrain from doing these things. Jesus told John, “One who uses my name and doesn’t speak evil against me is for me.”                                                  
Mark 9:38-40
38. And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 39. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 40. For he that is not against us is on our part.
  In another story there are the seven sons of Sceva, that were vagabond Jews, and their father was the chief of the priests. These Jews did not have the faith of the other brother that John spoke about, they didn't believe in Jesus like he. With their father being a high priest, they probably didn't believe Jesus was the Messiah. We use the name of Jesus, as a name with power. The name of Jesus washes away our sins and cleanses us, when we are baptized using His name. His name also heals and cast out demons. There is no other name that can cleanse us, heal us or cast out demons. These two stories illustrate the differences between one who uses a name with power and belief in Christ and the ones who don’t.
Acts 19-13-19
13. Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. 14. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 15. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? 16. And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18. And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. 19. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
  This display by the demons really spooked a lot of the people in this town.  Many of them used curious arts. This means witchcraft, divination, astrology and so on. There are so many people in our churches today that use these same curious arts, not knowing, because they haven’t been taught. These things are an abomination in the eyes of God.
Deuteronomy 18:9-12  
9. When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. 11. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Deuteronomy 32:39
39. See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no god with Me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
  It's a horrible thing to have the wrath of God on your head. Hopefully by the time you’ve finished reading this it will be clear to you, the Name we’re suppose to use. Salvation cannot be reached using any other name.
James 2:19
19. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble.
Exodus 3:13-14                                                                                                                                          
13. And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 14. And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
John 8:58
58. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Mark 14:62
62. And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Exodus 6:3
3. And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
Psalms 50:7
7. Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
Mark 12:29-32                                                                                                                                                              
29. And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 32. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 
Revelation 1:12-16
12. I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13. and among the lampstands was someone "like a Son of man," dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16. In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
Luke 9:28-31                                                                                                                                                   
28. And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. 29. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. 30. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: 31. Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
  During my study time when I run across a scripture and get revelation, it’s like a kid in a candy store, the excitement factor. Before I turned my life to Christ and started studying, I did not know there was a reference to God being the rock in the Old Testament. That’s why, studying the bible is very important. People have been misled to think Peter was the rock. When Jesus said, “Upon this rock I build my church”. He was speaking of himself and the future fulfillment of prophecy, not Peter. Peter did receive the keys to the kingdom, as evidenced on the day of Pentecost, when he gave revelation to his fellow Jews and to the gentiles when he was summoned by Cornelius the Roman Centurion. 
Deuteronomy 32:3-4                                                                                                                                            
3. Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. 4. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
Deuteronomy 32:18
18. Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
Exodus 17:5-6                                                                                                                                      
5. The LORD answered Moses, "Walk on ahead of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6. I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink." So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel.
  In another passage we will see where the children of Israel complained again about water, and in anger Moses went and struck the Rock twice, disobeying God’s orders. Moses was told to speak to the rock this time, instead of striking it. Because of his disobedience, Moses and Aaron had to die and were not allowed to venture into the new land. When we’re disobedient to God’s word, there are consequences. That was the case with Aaron and Moses. Thank God for grace and mercy. Even though we may sin, if we repent we will not miss the promise land.
Numbers 20:8-12
8. "Take the staff, and you and your brother Aaron gather the assembly together. Speak to that rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water. You will bring water out of the rock for the community so they and their livestock can drink." 9. So Moses took the staff from the LORD's presence, just as he commanded him. 10. He and Aaron gathered the assembly together in front of the rock and Moses said to them, "Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?" 11. Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank. 12. But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them."
l Corinthians 10:3-4
3. They all ate the same spiritual food 4. and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that Rock was Christ.
Isaiah 26:4
4. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
  As times get harder and we get closer to the end, we hear from different preachers on how we should store up goods for the endtimes, and should start collecting gold, silver and weapons. What good will all this do? When the antichrist and his system is installed, you better believe that anyone with gold, silver or weapons will be the first to be imprisoned or killed. You won't be able to buy or sell unless you take his mark. God wants us to know that something supernatural and Spiritual will be happening during these times and He has repeatedly given us indications throughout His word, how He takes care of those that are His. The children of Israel traveled through the wilderness for forty years, with the same clothing and shoes, and they never wore out. When they needed food in the wilderness, He gave them manna from heaven. When they complained about not having meat, He gave it to them. If God fed these individuals that constantly murmured and complained, do you think He won't take care of those that are His church and bride? Can you imagine all the food that was needed to feed almost 2-3 million people in the wilderness, day and night. A Quartermaster for the U.S. Army calculated what logistics would be needed today, to feed that many people.  He said, Moses would have needed 1500 tons of food daily to feed the children of Israel. To bring that much food daily in today's society, you would need two freight trains, each a mile long. If they only needed enough water to drink and wash dishes, it would take 11 million gallons of water daily. It would take a freight train with tank cars 1800 miles long, just to bring the water. When Elijah was in the wilderness alone, God sent forth the ravens to feed him. During Elijah's ministry, he also went to the home of a widow who had only enough oil and meal to make one cake for her and her son. Elijah told her to bring him a cake made of her last. He told her that God said, "the meal shall not waste and the oil will not fail. After making the cake and doing as Elijah told her, she never lacked either. My last story involves Jesus Himself, when he had over 5000 souls to feed and the only food was the 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread the little boy had. Jesus took that and fed everyone and had 12 basketful left over. The tribulation is going to be a dreadful but exciting time for the church. Dreadful because of the torment we will encounter and exciting because we will witness the unleashing of the power of God. With the mark of the beast being prevelent during that time, we won't have to worry about catching flights from one city to another or from one place to another. I believe God is going to do for us like He did to Phillip after speaking with the eunuch in Acts the 8 chapter. Supernatural flight to wherever the Lord wants us. This is going to be an awesome time.
  If we don't believe that God will supply our needs, those individuals will never make it through those perilous times. Please bare with me, I'll give you the evidence needed to show the church will be here during these times. Don't doubt what God can do for us. What an amazing and powerful God we have!

Revelation 13:16-17
16. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Acts 8:27-40
27. And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28. Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29. Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30. And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? 31. And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. 32. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33. In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. 34. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? 35. Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. 36. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 37. And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 38. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. 39. And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. 40. But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
Exodus 16:2-18
2. And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness: 3. And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger. 4. Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no. 5. And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily. 6. And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt: 7. And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us? 8. And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD. 9. And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he hath heard your murmurings. 10. And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud. 11. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 12. I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God. 13. And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. 14. And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. 15. And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat. 16. This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents. 17. And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less. 18. And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating
1 Kings 17:4-6
4. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. 5. So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. 6. And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.
1 Kings 17:10-16
10. So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. 11. And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. 12.And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. 13. And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. 14. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. 15. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. 16. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
John 6:9-13
9. There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 10. And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 12. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 13. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten
  The devil sinned in heaven, when he wanted to be worshiped like God. Satan thought he could overthrow God’s throne. Jesus, Himself, tells us He was there when Satan was cast as lightning, down to the earth. He was cast down to the earth and he then tempted Eve with the forbidden fruit. When Adam and Eve sinned there was already a plan of redemption in effect. The Son was preordained before anything was made. God in his infinite wisdom knew what was going to happen before it took place. When He made the angels, Satan sinned when he wanted to be worshiped like God. Then Adam and Eve in the garden sinned when they ate the forbidden fruit. So who else could know save mankind. God knew being a Spirit, that he would need a bodily form and eventually, He would have to come here in flesh, be the perfect sacrifice and die for all our sins. Since the flesh of Jesus died for our sins, He’s the only one that can redeem us from our sins. That’s why the name we baptize in is so important. He’s the perfect lamb.
Luke 10:17-18
17. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
l John 3:8
8. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
  The bible tells us not to lean unto our own understanding. But, by fasting and praying the Holy Ghost will show us and open our understanding. Don’t rely on the words, a man preach, unless they’re preaching directly out of the bible. Study to show ourselves approved, rightly dividing the word of God. Put a line upon line, precept upon precept.
Proverbs 3:5-6
5. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
2 Timothy 2:15-18                                                                                                                     
15. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18. Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
  Gods thoughts and ways are not are ways. That’s why it’s hard for people to see the oneness of God. He can be the Father and the Son at the same time. We can’t afford to get this wrong. We are living in the last days, and we need to make sure we are walking in His truth. We’ve got to be very careful, because the enemy is slick and deceitful. If Satan can trick 1/3 of the heavenly angels to side with him in heaven, we as humans don’t stand a chance with his trickery, unless we’re covered by the blood of the Lamb. If we sin willfully, there’s no more blood for sacrifice, but you can be redeemed if your repentance is true and you change. You are not a child of God if you willfully continue to sin or if you are a child of this world. Jesus said, he didn't pray for the world, only for those that were His.
Hebrews 10:26
26. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
John 8:42-44
 42. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 17:9
9. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
  This dispels the rumor that we are all Gods children. If we don't live by His commandments, your father is the devil.
After the day of Pentecost when thousands were added to the church, Peter and John healed a lame man in front of the temple gate Beautiful. Afterward they went with the man into the temple. People wanted to know what happened to the lame man they knew. Peter explained to them, Jesus. The captain of the temple guard, hearing them, took hold of them and brought them before the rulers, scribes, Annas the high priest and Caiaphas. They asked them, by what power or name are they doing these things. One thing we must remember, Jesus told his disciples, in Matthew 24th chapter, they would be brought before rulers or kings and it won’t be them talking, it will be the Holy Spirit. The following scriptures is Peters response;
Acts 4:8-12 
8. Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, 9. If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10. Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 
  The amazing thing about that story is, after being warned by the high priest not to preach this message. The apostles continued to preach the word in the temple. Later, when caught again preaching, the apostles were beaten. Afterward they delighted in the beating that they received for teaching the words of Christ.
Acts 5:30-42 
30. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 31. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. 32. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. 33. When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them. 34. Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; 35. And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men. 36. For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. 37. After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed. 38. And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39. But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. 40. And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. 42.And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
  How many of us today would have taken this stance. After the first strike, the majority probably would have sold out. We’ve got to have the mindset of the apostles. Endure whatever we have to, in order to make it into God's Kingdom. If you believe in pre-tribulation, you don’t believe we will have to suffer like the first century church. During the tribulation it’s not the saints that will receive God’s wrath, it’s the unsaved and those that choose the mark of the beast. The tribulation is our wilderness. Only the deserving, the wheat will be taken up to meet the Lord when that last trumpet is blown. We, here in the U.S. and the western world don’t have a clue to what they have to endure. There are brothers and sisters in China, Korea and Islamic regions that are tortured daily for their belief in Christ and the bible. They have to hide their bibles and other Christian literature from authorities. It is mostly in the western churches that a pre-tribulation rapture is preached. They don’t believe it in these regions where they are tortured. It will come here eventually, because the bible tells us so. The world hated Him and they will hate us. Some in the body of Christ will suffer persecution and tribulation. I will show you later, why I changed from pretribulation to post tribulation, after reading through the bible and the Lord opening my understanding to His word. 
Mark 13:13
13. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Phillipians 1:29
29. For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
1 Thessalonians 3:3-4                                                                                                                
3. That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. 4. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
2 Timothy 3:11-13                                                                                                        
11. Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
Revelations 2:10
10. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Romans 8:35-39  
35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36. As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  All the apostles except John are reported to have had a torturous death. Not only the Apostles, but many Christians were tortured beyond measure in front of entertained crowds. Why are we so special in today's western world, for people to believe, some won't have to suffer like they did? Because are bills are not paid or money is tight, along with other family problems, do we think we are exempt and this is our tribulation? I don’t think so. Our lives are literally at stake! God is coming back for a perfect church or bride. With all that's going on in our churches today, we are hardly close to a bride without spot or wrinkle.
People think because God is a loving God, that He’ll continually put up with whatever we dish out at him. The children of Israel made this same  mistake. There’s a time coming when everyone will either be living in glory or doomed to the lake of fire. The following verse shows what happens to a people when God is tired of their abominations. In the Old Testament, King Saul was told by Samuel the prophet, “God wants you to destroy the Amalekites”.

1 Samuel 15:3
3. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
  Do you see where Samuel told King Saul to destroy the infants and suckling! Because Saul allowed the king to live and brought back their valuables, Samuel told him that God was displeased with him and he would lose his anointing and kingship. What do you think happened to the pregnant woman and children during the days of Noah? God is patient until the time has come for his judgment to reign. Then it’s lights out. If you’re not living according to his covenant you’re doomed. We use the scriptures themselves to help interpret scriptures. People can read the bible dozens of times and might know it like the back of their hand, and can remember the whole bible verbatim. Without God giving that person understanding, it’s useless. Remembering verses is one thing, interpreting and rightly dividing them is another.
Isaiah 55:8-9
8. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
  During the days of Jesus, and even before, the Pharisees and Sadducees, they couldn’t abstract from the Old Testament who he was. One reason is, they were bound by man’s traditions, and was blinded to the word. They were expecting a Messiah, who from the beginning would come as a mighty warrior, a heavenly typology of King David, to come and destroy all their enemies. But Christ came to save mankind from the shackles of sin and eternal death. Even today, many churches are operating under traditions of men, instead of teaching the word. What we have to realize, the plan of salvation isn’t one thing, it’s several.  Throughout biblical history, blood, water and Spirit have always been components, involved in salvation. First and foremost is believing He is, whom He said He is, then repentance, baptism in Jesus name. After this the Holy Ghost is promised. It is possible to receive the Holy Ghost before baptism. Without both, baptism and the Holy Ghost, you will not make it into God's Kingdom. Some preachers say, “This referred to the first century church only.” I say, “My bible tells me this is the everlasting gospel, from the day of Pentecost to the end of this world.
Matthew 24:14

14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
  In the days of Moses, the Israelites were told to put blood around the mantel and side posts of their doors, because the angel of death was going to pass over. The blood is what saved them. Houses without the blood, their firstborn were killed. When the children of Israel crossed the sea, it was a typology of water baptism. Egypt is synonomis with sin. Once the water buried the Egyptian soldiers and chariots in the Red Sea, it's a typology of sins being buried. The cloud that followed them, was the Spirit of God. Remember, God is a God of order.
Exodus 12:7-12 
7. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. 8. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. 10. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 11. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover. 12. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
1 Corinthians 10:1-2                                                                                                       
1. Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2. And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 
Leviticus 1:5
5. And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
  When studying, I do it mostly on the internet. The website is;

  I open two internet explorers, then open up King James Version in one and then I open, this acts as a concordance and helps me pull up any relevant scriptures throughout the bible;
  We have got to let the Holy Spirit guide us and help us to understand His word. Be careful with these new translations, sometimes the authors changed the meaning slightly, just enough though to change what God is saying. For instance, in Daniel 11:37 it says, 37. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. In the NIV translation it says,  37. He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.
  In this verse Daniel is speaking of the antichrist that will reign during tribulation times. In all other translations they say the gods of his father! The singular God was the God of Israel. I will delve into the antichrist later. By changing it to gods this person could come from any race. God has a specific order. During the times of the Old Testament if the priests did something out of order, God’s judgment was almost instantaneous. In one instance King David and the priests were not carrying the Ark of the Covenant according to God’s instruction. When the Ark started to tip one of the men grabbed the Ark to steady it, and was instantly killed. Two of Aaron's sons were killed when they went into the presence of God with strange fire in their censors.

2 Samuel 6:6-7                                                                                                                                   
6. And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. 7. And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
Exodus 30:20-21                                                                                                                    
20. When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD: 21. So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.
Leviticus 10:1-2
1. And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. 2.And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.
  WOW! That’s very strong. If they didn’t wash before they came into the presence of the Lord, He would kill them. So what makes us think it’s any different today! Some preach that baptism isn’t necessary and some say Apostle Paul didn't baptize anyone. What we have to do as students of the bible is the same thing I've mentioned throughout this site and that is, types and shadows. Water and baptism means a seperation from that which is clean and unclean. When Noah and his family were saved from the waters, the ones that were unrighteous died from the water. Noah being righteous was delivered, by the waters. When Moses and the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, The bible tells us, they were baptized unto Moses, through the sea and the cloud. Going through the waters meant baptism or life for the children of Israel, but death for the Egyptians. Some preach, Paul said not to baptize, and it's not necessary. They use the following scripture. This is why we need to study everything a preacher is saying to us. If you read the preceding scriptures, you'll see exactly what happened.
1 Corinthians 1:17
17. For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
1 Corinthians 1:10-16
10. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11. For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12. Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 14. I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; 15. Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name. 16. And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.
1 Corinthians 10:1-2
1. Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2. And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
  Paul did baptize some of his close followers. There was a big fuss over the way to baptize, so Paul said he was glad he only baptized a few. The gentleman that said Paul said not to baptize, is a minister that is on nationwide television. This is blatant disreguard for God's word. 
Galations 3:27
27. for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
John 3:5-6                                                                                                                                        
5. Jesus answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
John 4:1-2
1. When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) 
Do you see in John 3 where Jesus said we cannot! Without baptism there is no salvation. What is the reason for baptism? To symbolize the washing away of sins and our death and resurrection with Christ! If we are not baptized with Christ, we will not rise like Christ, and will be lost eternally. The word baptize in Greek (baptizo), means to immerse in water. 
Romans 6:1-14                                                                                                                         
1. What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2. By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3. Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4. We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. 6. For we know that our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin. 7. because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. 8. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. 14. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.
Exodus 29:4-12
4.  And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water. 5.  And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod: 6.  And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre. 7.  Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him. 8.  And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them. 9.  And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons. 10.  And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock. 11.  And thou shalt kill the bullock before the Lord, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 12.  And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all the blood beside the bottom of the altar.
Exodus 30:17-21
17. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 18. Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. 19. For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: 20. When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the Lord: 21. So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.
Leviticus 1:2-9
2.  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the Lord, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. 3.  If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord. 4.  And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. 5.  And he shall kill the bullock before the Lord: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 6.  And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces. 7.  And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire: 8.  And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar: 9.  But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord.
2 Chronicles 4:1-6
1. Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof. 2. Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about. 3. And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about: ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. Two rows of oxen were cast, when it was cast. 4. It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward. 5. And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies; and it received and held three thousand baths. 6. He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.
  Hopefully, these few examples helped to show the significance of blood, water and Spirit. These three components agree in one. The washing of the animals and the sacrifice of the animals and the sprinkling of their blood was a pattern and example of Christ, when He would come to die for the sins of the world. He is the Lamb of God and the perfect sacrifice. When Christ went to the Jordan River to be baptized by John, John told Jesus, he needed to be baptized by Him. Jesus told John, suffer Me, I need to baptized, not because of His sins (because He was sinless), but, so that all righteousness may be fulfilled. There’s more involved than confession with your mouth and you’ll be saved. God, when dealing with mankind, has always instituted a covenant with us. It’s no different now. Except, this last covenant, is the only way to Christ and eternal life.
Matthew 3:13-16
13. Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15.And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
John 1:29
29. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
1 John 5:6-8
6. This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
Jeremiah 31:33
33. But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Hebrews 7:22-28
22. By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. 23. And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24. But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 26. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27. Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28. For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
Hebrews 9:1-16
1. Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. 2. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. 3. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4. Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; 5. And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. 6. Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. 7. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: 8. The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: 9. Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; 10. Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. 11. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12. Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14. How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15. And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.  
Hebrews 10:16-22                                                                                                                    
16. This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17. And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. 19. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20. By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21. And having an high priest over the house of God; 22. Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Hebrews 13:20
20. Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
Matthew 24:14
14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Acts 2:38-39                                                                                                                                 
38. Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call."                                                                                                                         
  The following story is one of my favorites in the bible. It’s the story of the Disciple Stephen, being full of faith and power and doing great wonders and miracles amongst the people. Being called in front of the Sanhedrin Council, he was accused of blasphemy and heresy. Here, he tells the story of Christ from the time he met Abraham, to His day of crucifixion. This will show you exactly what the Apostles believed and taught about Jesus. Even though Stephen knew what the outcome was going to be, he still had mercy for those that were going to kill him and asked God to forgive their sins. Jesus told us, “You’ll be called in front of kings and councils, but it won’t be you talking it will be the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 7:1-60 
1. Then the high priest asked him, "Are these charges true?" 2. To this he replied: "Brothers and fathers, listen to me! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was still in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran. 3. 'Leave your country and your people,' God said, 'and go to the land I will show you.'  4. "So he left the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Haran. After the death of his father, God sent him to this land where you are now living. 5. He gave him no inheritance here, not even a foot of ground. But God promised him that he and his descendants after him would possess the land, even though at that time Abraham had no child. 6. God spoke to him in this way: 'Your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years. 7. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves,' God said, 'and afterward they will come out of that country and worship me in this place.'  8. Then he gave Abraham the covenant of circumcision. And Abraham became the father of Isaac and circumcised him eight days after his birth. Later Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob became the father of the twelve patriarchs. 9. "Because the patriarchs were jealous of Joseph, they sold him as a slave into Egypt. But God was with him 10. and rescued him from all his troubles. He gave Joseph wisdom and enabled him to gain the goodwill of Pharaoh king of Egypt; so he made him ruler over Egypt and all his palace. 11. "Then a famine struck all Egypt and Canaan, bringing great suffering, and our fathers could not find food. 12. When Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our fathers on their first visit. 13. On their second visit, Joseph told his brothers who he was, and Pharaoh learned about Joseph's family. 14. After this, Joseph sent for his father Jacob and his whole family, seventy-five in all. 15. Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our fathers died. 16. Their bodies were brought back to Shechem and placed in the tomb that Abraham had bought from the sons of Hamor at Shechem for a certain sum of money. 17. "As the time drew near for God to fulfill his promise to Abraham, the number of our people in Egypt greatly increased. 18. Then another king, who knew nothing about Joseph, became ruler of Egypt. 19. He dealt treacherously with our people and oppressed our forefathers by forcing them to throw out their newborn babies so that they would die. 20. "At that time Moses was born, and he was no ordinary child]For three months he was cared for in his father's house. 21. When he was placed outside, Pharaoh's daughter took him and brought him up as her own son. 22. Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action. 23. "When Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his fellow Israelites. 24. He saw one of them being mistreated by an Egyptian, so he went to his defense and avenged him by killing the Egyptian. 25. Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not. 26. The next day Moses came upon two Israelites who were fighting. He tried to reconcile them by saying, 'Men, you are brothers; why do you want to hurt each other?' 27. "But the man who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside and said, 'Who made you ruler and judge over us? 28. Do you want to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?'  29. When Moses heard this, he fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons. 30. "After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai. 31. When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to look more closely, he heard the Lord's voice: 32. 'I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.'  Moses trembled with fear and did not dare to look. 33. "Then the Lord said to him, 'Take off your sandals; the place where you are standing is holy ground. 34. I have indeed seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groaning and have come down to set them free. Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.'  35. "This is the same Moses whom they had rejected with the words, 'Who made you ruler and judge?' He was sent to be their ruler and deliverer by God himself, through the angel who appeared to him in the bush. 36. He led them out of Egypt and did wonders and miraculous signs in Egypt, at the Red Sea and for forty years in the desert. 37. "This is that Moses who told the Israelites, 'God will send you a prophet like me from your own people.'  38. He was in the assembly in the desert, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers; and he received living words to pass on to us. 39. "But our fathers refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt. 40. They told Aaron, 'Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt—we don't know what has happened to him!' 41. That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and held a celebration in honor of what their hands had made. 42. But God turned away and gave them over to the worship of the heavenly bodies. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: " 'Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the desert, O house of Israel? 43. You have lifted up the shrine of Molech and the star of your god Remphan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile' beyond Babylon. 44. "Our forefathers had the tabernacle of the Testimony with them in the desert. It had been made as God directed Moses, according to the pattern he had seen. 45. Having received the tabernacle, our fathers under Joshua brought it with them when they took the land from the nations God drove out before them. It remained in the land until the time of David, 46. who enjoyed God's favor and asked that he might provide a dwelling place for the God of Jacob.  47. But it was Solomon who built the house for him. 48. "However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men. As the prophet says: 49. " 'Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be? 50. Has not my hand made all these things?'  51. "You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit! 52. Was there ever a prophet your fathers did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him— 53. you who have received the law that was put into effect through angels but have not obeyed it." 54. When they heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. 55. But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56. "Look," he said, "I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." 57. At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, 58. dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59. While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 60. Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep.                        
  I believe this is the only instance in the bible where God is actually standing at his throne. Why do you think God was standing? Normally, we only hear of God sitting on his throne. When we go to a ballgame and see a spectacular play, most of the time we stand and applaud, to show how we appreciated that play. Do you think, God had done the same for Stephen? Even near his end, Stephen still had love for his fellow brethren. He asked God not to hold this against them. That’s pure love brothers and sisters. In all things we do, let love abound in us. For love is the most important attribute we can have. Having all knowledge of the scriptures, but not having love, is a sin. There are times when you are trying to witness to someone who has been indoctrinated with another doctrine, when you try talking to them, they become angry and lash out at you calling you a heretic. Where's the love or peace that is required of us when spreading the gospel. If someone doesn't agree with you, don't condemn, show them scriptures where they are wrong, if wrong. 
1 Corinthians 8:1
1. Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity (love)edifieth.
  It’s a scary thing, when the bible tells us, if we preach anything other than this gospel, or another Jesus, you are accursed, but, many people are doing it.
2 Corinthians 11:4
4. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
Galatians 1:8
8. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Isaiah 28:9-10
9. Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
  One day while watching a program called, “Ask the Pastor”, someone called in and asked the question, “If I asked God to be my savior and confessed with my mouth, and I died suddenly, would I go to heaven? Most of the pastors said yes. The ministers preaching this message are going to be responsible for a lot of souls. They use the following verse to bring forth that message.
Romans 10:9 & 13                                                                                                                       
9. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.                                                                            
13. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

  First, Jesus resurrected around 33 A.D. After his death, the apostles were told to preach a certain message, the gospel of the kingdom. This is the only gospel that God ordained to be preached, from the day of Pentecost to the end of the world. The New Testament wasn’t written during Pentecost it was written later, sometimes years later. So where do you think the Apostles were preaching from? The Old Testament! The Eunuch in the book of Acts was reading from the 53rd chapter of Isaiah when Phillip helped him get the revelation of Jesus and what name he needed to be baptized in. Second, in the book of Romans it tells you in the first chapter, who Paul was writing to. He wrote letters to the existing church, not to sinners who were never saved. Matter of fact, the entire bible was written to followers of God, not to the world. Once you have repented, been baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost, and you sin, this is when you can ask God for forgiveness and repent with your mouth and be saved.
Matthew 24:14

14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come
Romans 1:7-8
7. To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 8. First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world
Hebrews 12:4-8
4. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. 5. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6. For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
1 John 1:7-9
7. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 2:1-2
1. My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2. And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
  If you believe Romans 10th chapter, what happened to the saints before Paul’s letter to the Romans? Paul’s letter to the Romans occurred around 49 A.D., some 14 to 16 years after Pentecost. The only plan of salvation to preach is in the book of Acts. That’s why it’s called the Acts of the Apostles. Another point some try to preach is, when Jesus was on the cross, one of the thieves asked Jesus to remember him in paradise. They say this proves you can get into heaven by confessing with your mouth, or by asking the Lord into your heart.
42. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
John 5:19-21                                                                                                                                     
19. Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. 21. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
  We should know that while Jesus was on this earth, the covenant with the Jews was the laws of Moses. The thief was Jewish. Jesus told us, he came not to change or destroy the law, but to fulfill the law.
Matthew 5:17-18

17. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
  The fulfillment of the law and Jesus words took place when He died on the cross. The new covenant started on the day of Pentecost. Jesus being Lord, can save whomever He wants. Didn’t God translate Enoch and carry Elijah away in a chariot of fire? These two never tasted death and never will.  In order to go to heaven, they had to take on heavenly bodies, because flesh and blood can’t inherit heaven. Neither will they be the witnesses, that are prophesied to preach on the earth during the tribulation. How can I say it, it's not them? The bible tells us there is only one who ascended and descended from heaven and that is Jesus Christ the Messiah. When Jesus died on the cross, and the veil of the temple was torn, and Jesus was resurrected, there were saints of old seen walking around Jerusalem. We don’t know who they were. Were they saints from the time of His death to the beginning of time? No one knows. We know that they came out of their graves after Jesus resurrection because, Jesus had to be the first fruits and He is the only one that has ascended into heaven on a cloud. The scriptures doesn’t give us any revelations into this matter. If you notice in a previous verse it said, “The Father raiseth up the dead and quickeneth them.” So, after being raised from the dead, what happen to them? Ministers preach that all those people are now in heaven and the cloud that Jesus went up on are those individuals. If that is the case, why does Peter in Acts 2, tell the Jews that the patriarch King David has not risen but is still in his grave. If anyone was worthy of heaven, it's King David. If you notice in the scripture below it says, many, not all. This is another mystery of God. Another mystery that puzzles me is the 18th chapter of John. When Judas and the guards came to Jesus is Gethsemane, Jesus asked, "Whom ye seek". They said, Jesus. He said, 'I am He', and they all, went backwards and fell to the ground. Was this due to His majesty? 
Psalms 89:48
48. What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
1 Corinthians 15:50
50. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Genesis 5:24
24. And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Hebrews 11:5                                                                                                                                      
5. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Proberbs 30:4
4. Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?
John 3:13
13. And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 
Ephesians 4:8-10
8. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10. He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 
Acts 2:29-34
29. Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31. He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. 32. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
  In your dictionary the meaning for translated means: to convey or remove to heaven without natural death.
2 Kings 2:11
11. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
Matthew 27:50-53                                                                                                                              
50. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52. And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53. And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
John 18:3-7
3. Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4.Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? 5. They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 6. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
  Jesus had a will. His will is, not one single person on this earth, would be lost. But in order for this to happen, we would have to repent, be baptized in His name and be filled with His, Holy Spirit. This will, couldn’t take place until His death. On the day of Pentecost, His will was read. This was the start of the last covenant.
  From the book of Matthew to the first book of Acts, the Jews are still under the law. From the second chapter on, is the new covenant that God made with mankind. How can we get things so wrong when Jesus himself told us, “unless a man is born of the water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God? This gospel we preach, is to the end, but the kingdom is everlasting. I mentioned this a lot earlier. The book of Acts shows what the apostles were told to do by Jesus, His last will and testament. They began in Jerusalem, then Judea, then Samaria, then to the uttermost parts of the world, to spread the gospel of the kingdom of God. The book of Acts shows the only way you can come to Christ. In this book is the plan of salvation. There is no other book in the New Testament that shows the plan of salvation. This is why the book of Acts first shows Jews in Jerusalem being born again, then outside Jerusalem, then Samaria then individuals in other parts of the world. Things are done in the order Christ told them to do it in. The remaining books were letters written by the apostles to the different churches. Some of the letters were admonishing them about their behaviors, and what they needed to do in order to remain saved. Some letters were letters of encouragement to the different churches. These letters are called the Epistles and is only meant for those individuals saved, according the Apostles directions. 
Hebrews 9:16-17
16. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17.For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
1 Thessalonians 5:27
27. I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
  In 2nd Peter, he tells us, what Apostle Paul wrote was hard to understand, and the unlearned and unstable wrestle with the scriptures he wrote to their destruction. In the writings of Paul is where a lot of the churches today make a lot of their mistakes. The examples of the Levitical priesthood is there for our examples and patterns. The washing of the offering and the sacrifices were types and shadows of the future covenant. 
2 Peter 3:15-18                                                                                                                           
15. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16. As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
  Then we have the final book, “Revelations”. In the first chapter and the first verse of Revelations we have:       
Revelation 1:1
1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
   Now, if we don’t know Jesus, how can we ever get a true understanding, of His book? Almost 90% or more of books sold on salvation or Revelations, are written by authors who don’t know the real Jesus. So, how can they accurately tell us about the bible? Do I believe that God can use someone who doesn’t know the plan of salvation? Of course I do. If that individual is to gain salvation, they must also follow God’s commandments. In the bible it tells us, God called King Nebuchadnezzar his servant and King Cyrus, His shephard who will perform all God's pleasures. He can use whomever he wants, even King James. The bible tells us, if we don’t praise God he can make the rocks cry out. But we’ve got to make sure, whatever they’re writing or preaching lines up correctly with the word of God, this website included.
Isaiah 44:28
28. That saith of Cyrus, he is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
Jeremiah 43:10
10. And say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them.
Matthew 7:13-15
13. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
  All Christians making it to heaven would be a marvelous thing, but, it’s not going to happen. Everybody that call themselves Christian, believe they’re going to heaven, even though they are still living a worldly lifestyle. Do you see above where it says broad is the way that leads to destruction, but narrow is the way that lead to life and only a FEW will find it. During the time of Noah, I don't know how many people were on this earth. I do know, that out of all the people that existed, only eight made it out and were saved from the destruction. I don't know how many people lived in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, I do know that only four made it out, but, Lot's wife decided to look back and was lost. During the last days and tribulation, only a few percentage of the people will make it, just like the other destructions that came upon the earth. That's scary words. It will be few, because majority will follow what a pastor say and will not follow God’s words and what He is saying. Many will be tricked by Satan in the end.
Matthew 22:14
14. For many are called, but few are chosen.
  The masses refuse to study, to show themselves approved. They'd rather do anything else but study. There are over 25,000 different religions around the world, based on christianity, when God said there's only one. Jesus warned us in the bible that false prophets and antichrists will be among us. It’s at an all time high. We’ve been totally misled by bible scholars throughout history, who said the antichrist’s and his religion will come through the Roman Catholic Church, along with other misrepresentations. This doesn’t make since. At least the Roman Catholic Church believes Jesus is the Son of God, regardless of what else they believe. Even in the Muslim religion, they believe that Jesus was a prophet. The focus was intentionally put on the Catholic Church by individuals that got their fundings through a very powerful family (and their cabal) I will mention later. The Catholic Church is not innocent and do have a part in trying to fool the masses in the end. They will collaborate with the powers that be. Everything we'll ever need to know is in the word. The antichrist will hate Jesus and will not like the mentioning of His name, and his followers actually believe they will destroy Christ at His second coming. Another major point is Revelation 17:9. They say this represents the city of Rome. But, people don’t realize that Jerusalem was called the same thing, the city on seven hills. Also in this same chapter, the apostle John wandered and marveled with great admiration, (why would an apostle of Christ wander about this apostate woman or beast). Then we find in Revelation 17:19, that the woman is that great city.
Revelation 17:1- 9 & 18
1. And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2. With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:  5. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 7.And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
18. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
