All Christians and many non-Christians consider the idea of going to heaven at the end of their lives a good thing. We will consider what happens when mortal man comes into contact with God. We want to live eternally with Him. To all men the options of heaven or hell is given. The scripture says God is holy. And what is man, man is but dust of the ground. In the book of Romans it says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
Romans 8:7 because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
This is serious. It shows the lack of harmony between man and God. There is nothing about the human race that is naturally agreeable to the things of God. Spiritually speaking we are naturally at enmity to God. It is because we are not subject to the Law of God. Even the king of heaven needs subjects. Many Christians claim to be subject to God but the Bible says naturally all humanity is not subject to the law of God.
Isaiah 55:8 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. Read the rest of this entry

The Israelites came out of Egypt and it’s an application to us. What does it mean for us to come out of Egypt? Following Jesus is not an outward show. It is not about what we do, what church we go to or the position we hold. It is certainly not what others think about us, but about what is going on in our heart. Outwardly many of us have left other churches behind, Babylon. We come and follow the truth where ever the Lord leads us. But what is going on in our heart? Leaving Babylon or the churches is outward, but what is going on in our heart? Do we continue to make progress in our journey coming out of Babylon or is there something in the way that hinders us? Is there something that prevents us from making continued progress? Let us turn our minds to the Israelites in the time of Moses in the Exodus. God had brought them out of Egypt. He had given them great promises and led them miraculously through the Red Sea. There is no way anyone could doubt that God Himself was leading them.

Consider the Jewish nation. Up until Jesus time, they were blessed above all nations. They could have been spiritually very well off. They had received many spiritual blessings. What does Paul write about them?
Romans 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit [is there] of circumcision? 2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
In Jesus’ time, the Jewish leaders were corrupt, they crucified Jesus but they were a favoured people because God had committed to them the sacred oracles of truth. Jesus said salvation was of the Jews but pride entered into their hearts. This pride is described in Luke.
Luke 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men [are], extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
Did the Pharisee live according to the law? He did. He lived up to the present truth that was entrusted to him. He was saying, thank you for rescuing me from this low condition, but then he said, or as this publican. The Lord judges the heart. How did the publican pray?
Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as [his] eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. Read the rest of this entry
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.
