 You Have Got to Be Kidding
 

Do you ever feel like a failure? Joe was well past fifty and grew up with a negative self- image which set his mind into a negative mindset that ultimately poisoned every home repair project he ever attempted. He was a mature Christian who was learning that God loved him as he was and not what he did. Find out in Joes own words how he was learning how to stay positive and in peace even when the outcome of his repair project did not turn out as how he hoped.

You have got to be kidding! How come this darn saw is not cutting down the wood in a straight line. Joe yelled, feeling pressured as time quickly slipped by him. Boy I started at 1:00 p.m. and now I turn around and its 2:00p.m. Joe wiped his brow with his sopping wet handkerchief where his hair used to be. He could feel the worry lines pressed in his forehead from years of frowning over the negative mindset he had developed over all those years from failed repair projects.  His negative self-image was weighing him down like a cement block tied to his shoulders. Joe was now on his fourth piece of wood trying to cut that ever elusive straight line down the piece of wood. Joe you have to stop and go pick up Stephen from work its time to go. O.k. honey, Im stopping Ill just have to pick it up when I get back.

Joe realized he was not feeling so bad about the failed attempts he had just made to make that perfect cut. He was actually feeling calm and remaining positive and not reeling into a pit of despair because the repair was not going how he imagined it would. He was aware that his thinking was not as negative as it once was; he did not have to perform the perfect repair job. Yes, he wanted it to look good but it did not have to be precise and absolutely perfect. So Joe went on his way and picked up Stephen from work and they quickly returned home. Joe was feeling his middle section noticing he had put on some weight.

Joe went right back out to work on his home repair project feeling that it would work out well and would be presentable when the job was completed. Joe fired up his saw and cut away on the wood. The cut was not perfect but the wood would fit into the space and would fit in well with the rest of the boards comprising the deck. He hammered a few nails into the board and called it quits. He stepped back and surveyed the repair he just completed. Joe saw that the board was not a perfect fit in the space but it would serve its purpose.

The old perfectionist mindset tried to rear its ugly head and overshadow Joes positive attitude. Joe started feeling that familiar negative poison rising up in the pit of his stomach. This time Joe determined to trust God and stay in a positive frame of mind. He shot up a quick prayer and the Lord helped him finish the repair job. Joe was at peace with the result of his work which was a vast improvement from his old tired way of thinking.

 

Brothers, continue to think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected. Philippians 4:8

  WHO IS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST
 

WHO IS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST?

 

Who is the Bride of Christ?  Is it a system, a church structure or you?  How you see yourself is how you will react.  If you see yourself as merely just an unworthy Christian who is far from Christ, you wont have such a personal intimate friendship with Jesus, as if you see yourself as a Bride of Christ who has been redeemed and made Holy by Jesus.  Only as a Bride of Christ will you automatically act differently and be more loving to God and others, as you will be devoted to Jesus because He reigns supremely in your heart and you will seek to do His Will.  Why is it that Jesus clearly said that it isnt those who say Lord, Lord, Lord who will be saved, but those who do the will of the Father?  Think about it, do you truly seek to do Gods Will at all times, or is it only when it suits you?  Do you like being the centre of attention in the choir, or do you sing for love of God? How do you see yourself in relation to God?

 

Please read the passage on the Wedding Feast.  Matthew 22:1-14 (KJV) 22 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

 

It is interesting that everyone is called to the Wedding feast, but who is the Bride of Christ?  We believe that those who have dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ and show that they love Him by obeying His Commandments and seeking to do His Will are the Brides of Christ. See the Bible verse. . (Hosea 2:19-20)  (KJV) I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord.

The Bible says that God is our husband as seen in Isaiah 54: 5 (KJV)  For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

Isaiah:  62:5 (KJV) ..as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.   The Bride of Christ knows God and has love and integrity and is ready, so he or she doesnt compromise and puts God first before anyone or anything and does everything out of love for Him, and is only taught by God and not man.   Now read what the Bible says about the Bride of Christ.  Revelation 19:7(KJV)

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

 

In the passage below see what happens to the virgins who have been converted.  These particular virgins are the Brides of Christ, and they all had the Holy Spirit, which is the oil in the lamp. Some Brides had gone back into the world and compromised, and didnt co-operate with the Holy Spirit and therefore fell asleep, while the others co-operated with the Holy Spirit and were ready for Jesus return. Matthew 25:1-13 (KJV) Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

 

You have got to give your life to Jesus Christ and in order to do that, ask His Holy Spirit to fill you with His love, and put God in first place in your life before anyone or anything.  When you do that, it isnt you who live, but Jesus who lives in you and reaches other people with His love. It is waking up every morning and wanting to make God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit happy and to comfort them by the life you live.  It is involving God in everything that you do so that everything is done for His glory. When you do that you are ready for Jesuss return.  Have you done that and have you no shadow of doubt that Jesus wont leave you behind but take you with Him?  If you arent sure of the answer, then you need to have a closer relationship with Jesus.

 

Religious people will tell you that as a Christian you cant dance and you cant have entertainment, and you cant do this and that and put all sorts of obstacles in the way until you feel stifled.  Yet that is not what Jesus said.  Jesus told us to be like little children as seen in Matthew 18:2-4 (KJV) And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Well, children are free and enjoy themselves and have fun, but the difference is that they want their parents attention all the time.  That makes all the difference and that is exactly what we must do because it is what God wants.  We must do everything for Gods glory from the tedious housework to the jobs we do, and the entertainment that we enjoy.  We must offer everything that we do as a continuous prayer to God, making Him the centre of our lives.

 

We therefore believe that there will be two different types of Christians in Heaven at the Wedding feast.  The closer you have been to Jesus, the closer you will be to Him in Heaven.  There will be the spectators at the Wedding feast and there will be the Brides of Christ who have had an intimate relationship with Jesus and have put Him in first place in their lives.  What do you want to be?  The choice is yours.  In order to make the right commitment you must have prayer time, receive the Lords Supper and read your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you the Bible rather than a person because otherwise it becomes like a history book.  You must be non-judgemental but merciful. You have no right to judge as to who is saved or not saved.  This is particularly true when some denominations in the Christian faith consider themselves to be saved while condemning other denominations as unsaved. When you do that you actually judge others and place yourself above everyone else and you play God, when the Bible clearly tells us not to judge.  Only God is capable of reading hearts and not you and He is the only one who has the power to save.  Look at the passage of the Pharisee and the tax collector in the temple, and when you judge you have the same attitude as the Pharisee and God abominates that attitude of self-pride as seen in

Luke 18:9-14 (KJV)9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: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.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.14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

 

If you judge someone for being sick and taking medication as being punished by God and not knowing God, you are being cruel, unmerciful and unloving. Once there was a lady who made a statement as regards to another Christian who took tablets and said me I dont need medication, I have Jesus. Her attitude was totally un-Christian and she was being just like the Pharisee in the temple by having self-pride and being judgemental.

 

On the contrary go out to love everyone without judging and seek the good in people.  Turn

this world into a better place by letting Jesus reign supremely in your heart and have a heart of flesh rather than a heart of stone.  When the Lord has changed your heart refuse to think negatively about yourself because that would be putting Jesus accomplishments down but instead focus on our Precious Saviour and thank Him for the way he is transforming you.

 The Muddy Rivers/Semi-Truck Dreams
 

The following dreams are significant to my life but also the Body of Christ as well.

 

When I was on vacation, I dreamt of a baby and the baby was drowning in a muddy river. The baby had green moss in its mouth and was choking, near death. I was trying to save the baby so I cleared its mouth and got it to breathe again. I just looked up the interpretation in Ira Milligan's: Understanding the Dreams You Dream: Biblical Keys to Hearing God's Voice in the Night. Baby means new beginning, new idea, new work in the Church. A muddy river equals spirit of the world; religious traditions of man; sin, wickedness. Stagnant, muddy, or polluted water equals man's doctrines and ways, iniquity, haughty spirit, unkind. I believe that this dream is referring to the new thing, the new work that the Lord is bringing to the Church. However, it is being suffocated and drowned in the muddy rivers, dirty waters of the religious traditions of man. So we need to purify the water and I had a dream later that I was trickling in like an IV into a pool of water purity and infusing purity into the water. Little by little the muddy, murky waters will be cleared.

Dreamt I was driving a semi-truck (tractor trailer) last night. Dream book says: Large burden: Ministry; powerful and/or large work in the Church! Truck size is often in proportion to the burden or size of the work. For every man shall bear his own burden (drive his own truck, do his own work, natural or spiritual) Galatians 6:5

 The Hand Than Never Lets Go
 

Do you know there is a love that is so awesome that we don’t have to worry about being separated from it? A love that is pure and without mixture. A love that promises to stay by our side and never let go. A love that never leaves nor forsakes us. It’s beyond what the human mind can comprehend. There is a love that is divine and with perfection casts out all fear.  The love of the Father who loved us even when we were still sinners. When we were lost, before we were even born, Jesus died for us. This love reached down through time and saved us from eternal darkness. Jesus took upon Himself the sin of humanity. God is a spirit and He is also love. “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” (1 John 4:8)

I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from my Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.  (John 10:28-29)

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8) We are not saved by anything we can naturally do. In other words, we cannot earn our salvation. Since we cannot earn it we cannot lose it either. Once we invite Jesus into our life and our genuinely saved we become born again, which means our spirit is changed and made new. The spirit of a man or woman is the true person. You see we live in these earth suits (our human bodies), which eventually physically die. The spirit continues to exist after it departs from the body. As a believer in Jesus Christ and a student of the Holy Bible, I believe in heaven and hell.

The Bible says whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) There are multitudes of Scripture that confirm salvation is forever. It’s not something you just walk away from and even if you try to you will never be able to release yourself from the firm grasp Jesus Christ has on you.

Who is the one who will condemn? Christ is the one who died and rose again, who is at the right hand of God, and who also is interceding for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? (Romans 8:34)

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38)

So, nothing can separate us from the love of God and since God is love we cannot lose our salvation! I think that is crystal clear from the above Scripture. Nothing can separate means just that, nothing! The blood of Jesus is the glue that holds us together with the Father. For we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. (Revelation 12:11)

For example, if you take the hand of someone much stronger than you and that person has promised to never let go, you will not be able to release yourself from that person no matter how hard you try to let go. If this is physically true in the natural, how much more is this true with God the Father who is the strongest being in the world.

 

 

 

He humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord. (Philippians 2:8-11)

 

There is no higher authority than Jesus Christ! He cannot lie for the Word of God is infallible. We are sealed with the Holy Spirit. First, we hear the message of the gospel of truth, the gospel of salvation and we must believe. Once we believe we become sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise. The Holy Spirit is the Father’s pledge to us that we are redeemed. (Ephesians 1:13-14) For example, if you have a coupon that is valid and you take it to the grocery store you can redeem a product with it. Once our spirit is sealed it is up to us to take the steps necessary to grow and mature as a believer.

Our physical bodies are not redeemed until the second coming of Christ when we are changed in a twinkling of an eye. The mortal puts on immortal. The corrupt flesh becomes incorruptible. Does that give us a right to live anyway we want? No, it just assures us that we are redeemed. Once we are saved and sealed with the Holy Spirit we are changed from the inside out.

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. (1 Corinthians 15:52)

When interpreting the Bible, we must first study it to show ourselves approved, but we must also not take Scripture out of context and build a whole theology around it. Unfortunately, man has the inclination to live by traditions and denominations. Everything needs to be proofed in the fire of the Word. “Is not my Word like as a fire? says the Lord; and like a hammer that shatters the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29)

The Word is also described as a double-edged sword that separates soul (or man) from (spirit) God. “For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12) In conclusion, it is important to exercise your discernment and not receive every spirit that teaches the Bible. We are to tests the spirits because there is so much mixture out there. (1 John 4:1) Mixture is when part of the teaching is correct and then part of the teaching is incorrect.

Let us study and show ourselves approved rightly able to divide the Word of God and don’t just blindly follow a wrong doctrine or theology because someone or some denomination has chosen to adopt that teaching. Beloved, I assure you when you are sealed by the Holy Spirit you are saved eternally. Don’t let anyone put doubt in you concerning this. In Jesus Holy name. Amen.

 Living Christians entering the wrath of God---end times
 

Living Christians entering the wrath of God---end times

Galatians 6:1-5   1 Friends, (in Christ,) if a Christian is detected in a transgression, you who have received the Spirit should restore the person in a spirit of gentleness. Take care that you yourselves are not tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will (obey) the law of Christ. 3 For if those who are nothing think they are something, they deceive themselves. 4 All must test their own work; so that their own work, rather than the work of others, will become a cause for their pride. 5 All (Christians) must carry their own loads.  

Daniel 11:33-35    33 (Holy Preachers and Teachers) who are wise and have spiritual insight among the people will instruct many and help them understand; yet for many days some of them and their followers will fall by the sword and by flame, by captivity and by plunder. 34 When they fall they will receive a little help, and many persons will join with them. 35 Some of those who are spiritually wise and have insight will fall as martyrs in order to refine, to purge, and to make those beginners among God’s people righteous, until the end time; because it is yet to come.

Luke 8:11-15   11 “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 The ones on the path are Christians who have heard God’s word; but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. 13 The ones on the rock are Christians who, when they hear the word, and receive it with joy.  They have God’s word with no root; they believe only for a while and in a time of testing God’s word will not be followed. 14 As for God’s word that fell among the thorns, these are Christians who hear God’s word; but as they go on their way, God’s words are not followed due to their cares for riches, for pleasures, and for worldly living.  Their Spiritual fruit does not mature. 15  As for God’s word falling on good soil, these are the Christians who, when they hear God’s word obey the word through an honest and good heart, and bear Spiritual fruit with patient endurance. The output will vary according to Spiritual growth.

John 15:1-6   15 “Jesus Christ said, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine keeper. 2 He removes every branch in Me that bears no Spiritual fruit. Every branch that bears fruit He prunes as to make it bear more Spiritual fruit. 3 You have already been touched by the word  I have spoken, therefore   4 abide in Me as I abide in you.  A branch cannot bear Spiritual fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in Me and I in them bear much Spiritual fruit, because apart from Me you can do nothing. 6 Whoever does not abide in Me is thrown away like a dried up branch; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.

Ephesians 6:10-18   10 Christians, be strong in the Lord, in the strength of His power. 11 Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the deceitful trickery of the devil. 12  Our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil. 13 Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may succeed on that evil day by having done everything to stand firm.  14 Stand your ground, fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. 15 As shoes for your feet use whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. 16 With all of these, use the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the devil. 17 Put on the helmet of salvation, and use the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 Pray in the Spirit at all times in a humble request. Keep alert and always humbly pray for all the chosen Christians.

Revelation 2:10  10 Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Beware, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have affliction. Be faithful until death, and I, Jesus Christ will give you the crown of life.

1 Peter 5:6-11  6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8 Be disciplined and keep alert.  Like a roaring lion, your adversary, the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour.  9 Resist him, steadfast in your faith, for you know that your Christian brothers and sisters around the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.  10 When you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you. 11 In Him is the power forever and ever. Amen.

2 Timothy 2:22-26  22 Avoid your youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, joining others, all with a pure heart, calling on the Lord 23 Have nothing to do with stupid and senseless controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. 24 As the Lord’s servant, you must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, like a patient teacher, and 25 correct opponents with gentleness.  God may perhaps grant that certain persons will repent and come to know the truth.   26 They may escape from the snare of the devil, after having been held captive by him while doing his will.

2 Timothy 3:4-5  4 Avoid the treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit.  They are lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. 5 They display an outward form of godliness while lacking God’s Spiritual power.

John 6:70   70 Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you, the twelve? Yet one of you is a devil,” and will fall.

James 4:4-7   4 Adulterers! Do you not know that friendship with the world is being an enemy of God?  Therefore, whoever wishes to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. 5 Do you over-look scripture that says, “God yearns jealously for the spirit that He has given us, ”  6 He gives more grace.  Scripture also tells us, “God opposes the proud, and gives grace to the humble.” 7 Therefore, turn to God and Resist the devil, and the devil will then flee from you.

Proverbs 12:16  16 Fools show their anger at once, but the prudent ignore an insult.

Galatians 6:7-10  7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow. 8 If you act according to the desires of your own flesh, you will reap corruption, but if you sow in Spirit, you will reap eternal life.  9  Do not get tired in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time if we do not give up. 10 Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those who are faithful to God’s word.

Galatians 5:17  17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other. Prevent doing what the flesh desires.

Galatians 5:19-26  19  Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions,  21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  22 By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit. 26 Do not become conceited by competing against one another, and envying one another.

2 Corinthians 4:4-7  4 The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 As teachers we do not proclaim ourselves, we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake. 6  It is our God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” and has placed in our hearts the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have made it clear made clear that this extraordinary power comes from God and flows through us teachers.

Mark 13:9-11, 13  9 “As for(Christians), beware; for they will hand you over to councils; and you will be beaten in synagogues; and you will stand before governors and kings because of Me, as a testimony to them. 10 (God’s word)  must be first be proclaimed to all nations. 11 When they bring you to trial and hand you over, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say; but say whatever is given you at that time, for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of God. 13 The one enduring to the end will be saved.

Revelation 13:7-8  7 (the  first beast of the devil) was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them.  It was given authority over every tribe and people and language and nation, 8 and many of the inhabitants of the earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slaughtered. 

Mark 13:21-23     21Jesus Christ said, “if anyone says to you, ‘Look! Here is (Jesus Christ)’ or ‘Look! There he is!’—do not believe it. 22 False (Christ and false prophets) will appear and produce signs and omens, to lead astray, if possible, the elect.” 23  Remain alert.

2 Corinthians 11:14 14   No wonder! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

Revelation 13:13-16  13 The second beast (of satan) performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of all; 14 and by the signs that it is allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceives many inhabitants of earth, causing them to make an image of the first beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived; 15 and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast could even speak and cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 Also it causes many, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, (but not those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.)

Revelation 14:9-13  9 Then another angel, a third, followed them, crying with a loud voice, “Those who worship the beast and its image, and receive a mark on their foreheads or on their hands, 10 they will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and they will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image and for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” 12 Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of Jesus.  13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them.”

Revelation 19:19-21   19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against the rider (Jesus Christ) on the horse, and against His army.    20  The first beast was captured, along with the false prophet, (the second beast,) who had performed in its presence the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. 21 The remainder of evil army members are killed by the sword of the rider (Jesus Christ) on the horse, the sword that came from His mouth.
