Satan will desire to test Gods people to the brink whether that bond is stronger than any other bond that can exist. We now enter into a time period in this study which is one that has never been before or after. It is the time period when the embassy is in lock down and evacuation is imminent. It is a time period described as a very troublesome time. It’s the time where God’s people have made it through test’s and trials in an era when the time is very worrisome to them.
Jeremiah 30:4 And these [are] the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 5 For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. 6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? 7 Alas! for that day [is] great, so that none [is] like it: it [is] even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

What was the turning point of Judas? What experience made Judas make his decision to betray Christ? When Jesus was talking about the true feasting on the Word on his blood, he said, he that drinketh my blood and eats my flesh has life. That was the point that Judas turned to betray him. Is that the point we turn? Can we turn away from that truth? It will either turn us away from Christ or to Christ. We have considered the truths of foot washing and for Christ’s sake we aren’t to hold any grudges against one another. In our attitudes we need to come and esteem others better than ourselves. We have understood in a previous study the spiritual appreciation of foot washing. We now seek to appreciate what Jesus Christ has done. The social interactions of people in the church, people you are entwined with in your roots, there could be a tare. We don’t know one day who will go where. We must be sure of where we want to go.

Relationships in the last days are with people that are back slidden, fallen and sinful and we are to go out to them in love. The heart and love of Christ is the spring of all relationships. To have love, to be loved, to be loving. What relationship is it that has not love? It’s not a very nice relationship. What is love? Love is something that the human heart longs for. When it thinks it finds it rejoices and opens the heart to all the emotions of love but if it’s not the true love that heart can be cut with the deepest wounds known the man. Love, something that is so delicate, one word and it is gone. One negativity and it disappears out of your heart. Yet love is so strong, so powerful that it doesn’t compare with the elements. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Nothing. Not height, depth nor death can separate us from the love of God. What is it? It’s kind, indeed it is. Kindness alone is not love. Love is kind, love is patient, and love is long suffering. What is love? The kingdom of love, Jesus came to earth from the kingdom of earth to love. Read the rest of this entry
Audio: Walking with the Godhead
Have you asked Jesus, ‘Can I walk with you and hold your hand?’ We think of a picture of walking along a beach in a storm with Jesus but do we really walk with Jesus? Do we walk with God?
Micah 6:6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, [and] bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? 7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, [or] with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn [for] my transgression, the fruit of my body [for] the sin of my soul? 8 He hath showed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
What will make God happy? What will make Jesus happy? A big offering? A big donation? Penance? Walking up the steps on my knees? Making myself feel bad? Will that make Jesus happy? Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
We are before the God of the universe.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, [and] over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous [are] thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true [are] thy ways, thou King of saints. 4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for [thou] only [art] holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
This is our last study in this series on Relationships in the Last Days. We are launching out into the year 2009. As we launch out into this New Year, what are we to expect? and how are we going to meet it? Let us reflect now upon the meditations we have had through this conference.
When sin came onto the planet, what did God, He who orchestrates all relationships, introduce into the relationship between man and Satan?
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Read the rest of this entry

What is written in reference to affection in the last days?
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
What is the peril? It is relationships.
2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
We want to focus on the very source of the relationships that we need to understand for the last days. In the beginning – God. That is the way the Bible starts. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. He created the heavenly host, all the angels, all the worlds, the cosmos, the stars and the planetarium of vast dimensions. If you look out into the stars you discover there is an immensity out there that is beyond human comprehension. God is the source of all that, but everything that is out there, and everything that is on the planet, is in relation to one another. Read the rest of this entry
