Why Did Jesus Bother Coming To Earth? Repost


Jesus came to correct the lie of the ages. The greatest truth that Jesus Christ defends is God, his heavenly Father’s universal sovereignty. Since

Jesus was tempted in all ways, just like you and me, but faithfully fulfilled his mission as our Savior.

Jesus was tempted in all ways, just like you and me, but faithfully fulfilled his mission as our Savior.

the first lie perpetuated upon the once perfect paradise earth caused the first sin, God our Almighty Creator has had his sovereignty challenged. “No, you won’t get caste out of the garden if you eat that fruit. You will be as smart as God.” “No, you do not have to choose good over evil. Do what you want. It is all the same.” “No, there really is no devil, or evil. There is no heaven. You are God” “The devil is a fairytale.” “All is One. All religions are equal and the same.”

Jesus is a man on a mission. There has been an ongoing battle against God’s rulership since the beginning of man and woman on this planet. Yes, we do amazing and beautiful things, and the complete opposite on any given day, given our mood and motive. Jesus is single task oriented, completely obedient to his heavenly Father, even to a torturous death. His mission remains constant. He taught about the coming Kingdom of God to earth. What will that be like?

All countries in the world will face Jesus Christ and his heavenly forces in the final battle against God’s rulership, which battle is called in Hebrew Har–Magedon.

“And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Armageddon.” Revelation 16:16

“They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and they perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.” Revelation 16:14

“His eyes (Jesus’ eyes) are a fiery flame, and on his head are many diadems. He has a name written that no one knows but he himself, and he is clothed with an outer garment stained with blood, and he is called by the name The Word of God. Also, the armies in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white, clean, fine linen. And out of his mouth protrudes a sharp, long sword with which to strike the nations, and he will shepherd them with a rod of iron. Moreover, he treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his outer garment, yes, on his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.” Revelation 19:12-16

Why?

Jesus and his heavenly armies will strike down all forms of false governments, false religions, false gods, and all divisions not created by God the Almighty Creator of all. At the same time, Jesus will shepherd the faithful, those of us who stood the test of time, in the face of negative peer pressure, worldly ambition and greed. Your and my test is our loving, forgiving faithfulness to God our Father and Jesus, his first born Son; and to each other with no separation.

But before we pat ourselves on the backs prematurely, we need to take a closer look to align ourselves with what our Heavenly Father is asking of us.

Not all governments who proclaim they are just, are just.

Not all religions who profess to be the one true religion, are.

Not all false gods are the One True God.

If your country’s practice is to murder and kill your own, or humans of any nation, you will not be among those chosen for eternal life treasuring all human life which is made in the image and likeness of the One True God. The God who made your and my hearts, reads our hearts.

Obedience to God’s authority includes things like having no idols in our worship or in our lives, calling no man father (in religions) except our Heavenly Father, forgiving one another, turning the other cheek, not going to war (and not justifying why we do), not pitting one side against another, loving one another with the human dignity regarding the entire human race, not just men, but women too; not just one race, but all races; not just one religion or nationality, but all people everywhere without division.

Are we the Almighty Creator God’s obedient children, or are we disobedient, and proud of it?

Are our lives a mirror of compassion and love beyond all human understanding, like our Heavenly Creator, the God of All, who sent Jesus to redeem us once we had been cut off from God, by our own sin? Jesus came to show us how to love. Jesus came to show us the way, of forgiveness, mercy, prayer and how to live. We have a short window of a grace period, of God’s undeserved kindness, left before Jesus comes back to earth, in order for you, me and every nation and human ruler to submit to God’s rulership over all creation. We either deny God, or profess God through our thoughts, words and actions. There is no other option.

“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite.” Daniel 2:44.

This inspired prophecy occurred over 2,500 years ago by the prophet Daniel, warning about the absolute outcome for all human governments today. And it specifies that unlike our human governments since the beginning of time, God’s Kingdom to come will have no end, ever.

Man-made national boundaries and prejudices will no longer exist.

“I saw heaven opened, and look! a white horse. And the one seated on it is called Faithful and True, and he judges and carries on war in righteousness.” Revelation 19:11

Armageddon is the coming of God’s heavenly Kingdom of God to earth. Armageddon is not one country against another country in today’s world, nor about who controls Jerusalem, nor about who has control over women, gold, oil, or any other creation of God.

Jesus told us that God’s Kingdom will supercede all other governments, rulers, presidents, Kings and Queens. This is Armageddon. God wins this one. Imagine a world with no political, social, financial or any other kind of border. Imagine the beautiful interaction of humans actually loving each other with genuine kindness.

This is where paradise is restored to earth.

Human Rights Worldwide


Let us take a deeper look at human rights in every country in Africa, Russia, the Far East, the Middle East, the Near East, North America, Central

God is closer to you than your nest breath.

God is closer to you than your nest breath.

America, South America; and every other country in the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere. Human rights are God-given rights. Human beings have a right to life by virtue of being born. Birth is a gift from the One God, Creator of All. Birth is not merely a biological function of intelligent, stupid, rich or religious human beings. We are also not made to be manipulated by others, on any level.

There is a way to have relationships with other countries in this world that do not involve conflict and war. This way is based on neutrality. But this way of neutrality and non-competition, is based on all of the things Jesus promoted for peaceful and loving living. However, there is no way to solve any of the problems in the world today without being God-centered. No man can lord it over any other man, woman or child in any country. This is only a temporary fix, and a very costly one in the eyes of eternity.

The placebo of a solution does not mean having a manmade war as if you, me, or whoever else, is generating Armageddon by our very own selves. This does not mean that the mightiest among us wins. Might is not right. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the richest among us who wins either, despite what it looks like now. The Almighty God in Heaven is not so weak as to be in need of you and me to fight his wars for him, financially, religiously, nor with the suppression of other human rights. There is something we are forgetting.

Each of us is loved by the God who created each one of us. We are loved first, before we take our first step, before we take a side by creating a division of thought. God is closer to you than your next breath. No human being gave you and me our right to life. No human being, has any right over your adult selves. You and I have a right to our thoughts, opinions, choices and actions.

Women have God-given rights, to life, to education, to religion, and to reach for the sky, as they feel God their Almighty Father created them to. Women “own” themselves. No real man can ever “own” any woman. Abuse is not an option for women. All women of the world need to know this.

The rich in this world are getting richer, while the poor are getting poorer. This is no accident. The rich in every country are pooling resources, resulting in a diminishing middle class, and keeping the poor wanting. But this does not mean we join forces with class warfare, and keep the caste system because we have the upper hand. Who do we really think we are? The God who made us sees all.

You and I do not need someone else’s permission to be ourselves. We also have every right to reassess our religious views. What do we believe and why? No one owns your faith but you.

Divisions in this world will not exist in the New World. You and I will not need to kill anyone in this world to get our way, or to make things (what we feel is) right. We will either be living the loving kindness that Jesus promoted, the Golden Rule, and forgiving one another, or we will not be living that way when the Kingdom of God comes to Earth. God’s Kingdom is already reigning in Heaven. Jesus is already seated at God’s right hand. God in Heaven wins this one folks. God promises all who have died a resurrection, and that is what we will all get, both the righteous and the unrighteous. Those of us not living as Jesus told us to live, will not be remembers in the New World, but those who do, will be rewarded with everlasting earth on a paradise earth.

The Transformation Of The Earth


The transformation of the earth into a lasting paradise is part of the divine purpose that has not yet been accomplished, but will be accomplished. TruthEverything that God has promised to take place, has taken place, except for his last promises, which include the earth as well as earth’s inhabitants. God promises to give an earthly paradise to humans for our enjoyment. This is part of God’s original plan. God is forever. God is faithful. Every one of God’s promises, including a paradise earth, is unchangeable. This is very encouraging news in light of today’s tragic forecast for the earth, apparently wearing out like a garment.

So many religions today foresee nothing but gloom and doom for the earth. But this is not accurate, according to the Bible, just as true today as the day it was written. One has to only to look at the many prophecies foretold centuries before they happened, to check the validity of the scriptures. The earth will not succumb to pollution, depletion of the ozone layer, nor even Armageddon. No, after God gives all of us, both individuals and nations, the chance to follow God or not, God promises to restore the earth into a beautiful paradise, for those who choose with their own free will to follow God. There is hope for all of us.

For a deeper look into the promises God has made to us concerning the future of the earth, check out the August 15, 2006 edition of The Watchtower, which can also be found on jw.org. Here are some excerpts for your inspiration on this matter.

“The Bible clearly speaks of a future paradise on earth. For example, the prophet Isaiah described the earth and its inhabitants in this way: “They will certainly build houses and have occupancy; and they will certainly plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. They will not build and someone else have occupancy; they will not plant and someone else do the eating. For like the days of a tree will the days of my people be; and the work of their own hands my chosen ones will use to the full.” (Isaiah 65:21,22)  The Jews, to whom God gave these promises, were certain that their land—indeed, the whole earth—would one day become a paradise for mankind’s everlasting benefit.

 “Psalm 37 confirms this hope. “The meek ones themselves will possess the earth.” Psalm 37:11 This verse is not talking about just a temporary restoration of the nation of Israel to the Promised Land. The same psalm specifies: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” (Psalm 37:29)  Note that this psalm says that everlasting life on earth is to be a reward for “the meek.” In a French Bible, a comment on this verse says that the word “meek” “has a far wider meaning than is apparent in translations; it includes the unfortunate, those afflicted or persecuted for Yahweh’s sake, humble hearts that are submissive to God.”

This is the Psalm Jesus was quoting from when he gave his famous Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:5.

Human Rights Include: Women’s, Men’s, Children, Age, Ethnic, Cultural, Economic, Race, Creed, Gender/LGBT, Disabilitiy, Political, National, Global ~ Repost


If you are a member of the human race anywhere on planet Earth, no matter which country you are from, no matter if your country is at peace or in turmoil, no matter if your government is democratic or not, no matter what classifications you can come up with to label yourself or others as “different,” each and every one of us is born with human rights endowed to us by the Source of all life, however you scientifically or religiously of philosophically believe that to be. Our beliefs are our human attempt to understand with our finite minds, the infinite generator of all life everywhere*.  It is not our belief system that makes a fact a fact, or a belief a fact. So, I encourage all of us to relax and breathe, as we broaden the scope of our understanding here, pondering ideas and concepts that might be outside the realm of what has been handed down for us to believe, in those neat and tightly closed boxes of our minds. The Human Rights discussed here refer to the rights of all human beings in our global family, in every situation, without exemption, in every country existing on this Earth in this moment in time. The Human Rights discussed here are not dispensed by people with power, wealth, fame, political affiliation or religion. The Human Rights discussed here supercede personal, social, national and global interests.

Women’s Rights are not separate from all Human Rights. Men’s Rights are not separate from all Human Rights. Children’s Rights are not separate from all Human Rights. Age discrimination which forces senior citizens from employment opportunities is not recognized in all Human Rights. Ethnic and Cultural Rights are not separate from Human Rights. Human beings from every Economic status are not separate in any way in all Human Rights. Every Race upon this living Earth is not separate from all Human Rights. Every Creed is not separate from Human Rights*.

*THE GENERATOR OF ALL LIFE IS THE KEY. Any person or group who does not value the gift of this life, and seeks to destroy life under the guise of a Creed, life as it was given to us by virtue of our birth, is not included as having human rights, because their sole purpose in this life is to destroy Human Rights. This article addresses the promotion of all Human Rights, which are God given.

All Gender Rights are not separate from Human Rights, specifically all Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgendered (LGBT) Rights are not separate from Human Rights. All Disability Rights are not separate from all Human Rights. Every person on the face of the earth has Political Rights, which are not separate from Human Rights.  National Rights for every country in the world are not separate from all Human Rights*, as long as each nation rises to the call to promote life, and honor the lives of all human beings everywhere. Global Rights are not separate from all Human Rights.

Every person has a right to exist. Every country has a right to exist. The Earth has a right to exist.

There is room on this planet for everyone. There is enough food on this planet for everyone. There is enough work on this planet for everyone. There is enough education on this planet for everyone. There is enough help on this planet for everyone.  There are enough resources on this planet for everyone. There is enough goodwill on this planet for everyone. There is enough tolerance on the planet for everyone. There is enough peace on this planet for everyone. There is enough problem solving on this planet for everyone. There is enough creativity on this planet for everyone. There is enough forgiveness on this planet for everyone. There is enough love on this planet for everyone.

There is enough of everything on the planet to take care of everyone’s need, but not their greed.

God does not need us to be inhumane to those who have a different belief, creed, race, color, age, culture, gender, physical ability, political affiliation, employment, education, or any other division we humans come up with to think that we are “different” from others. God certainly does not need us to kill others we do not believe or think the way we do.

It is one thing to make individual choices of how we want to live our lives. It is quite another thing to play God.

God is not so feeble as to need us to do his job.

Our job is to love.

Emotional Stability ~ Decision Is The Answer ~ Moods Follow Thoughts ALWAYS


Decision making is the stable anchor to the emotional storms that brew on the popular tides of drama and outrage that carry us out to turbulent seas. Making firm decisions, and sticking

Balanced Stress Stops Panic Attacks

Balanced Stress Stops Panic Attacks

to them in times of emotional upset is like the eye of the storm around us. It is possible for us to have chaos all around, yet remain calm and in control, as long as we realize that we are in control of ourselves, and no one else. We are not puppets, unless we choose to be.

How many times do we find ourselves playing the victim to life’s drama, or the martyr? Sometimes we are in the midst of chaotic situations, and conflicting options by ever changing life situations; while other times we can find ourselves playing out our part in our own or someone else’s drama. Do we realize how much we are drawn into someone else’s drama by our own choices? Do we see patterns of habitually being drawn into others drama, or do we find ourselves in the all too familiar role of self-inflicted drama ourselves?

Let someone else dare to have a different opinion that we have, and there lies the negative seeds of conflict. Water these with our thoughts, and there we go, off again to our next dramatic event, triggering our own self-sabotage emotional wound. Poor us.

It does not have to be this way. You and I are not victims to life. On one hand we know this. We jump on the band wagon of the power of the positive thinking train, and can quote with the best of them, all the modern day guru ideologies. But our train can get derailed, and sometimes can get totally off the track, if we do not take better care of our own emotional health. How can we do this?

Helpful tips for stronger emotional health:

*Just because someone else is mad, sad or any other negative emotion, does not mean that you have to be too. This is not compassion, nor empathy

* Now is not forever

* In overwhelming situations, the thing to remember is, “People before things”

* Moods follow thoughts, ALWAYS. If you don’t like how you are feeling, change how you are thinking

* Jump off the merry-go-round of dysfunction, drama, and anything we do not want in our life

* Decide from now on, exactly what and who we want in our lives

* Life is too short to be manipulated or abused by others

* We are in control of our own life, not other people

* Stop being a people pleaser. It is not our job to sacrifice our own happiness in order to make other people happy

The bottom line is, it all starts with making a decision of what we want in our life, and sticking to it.

Earth ~ Our Living Planet In The Habitable Zone


Our "city" or solar system, is located in the ideal region of the Milky Way galaxy, not too close to the center and not too far from it. Scientists say we live in the "Habitable Zone."

Our “city” or solar system, is located in the ideal region of the Milky Way galaxy, not too close to the center and not too far from it. Scientists say we live in the “Habitable Zone.”

Earth's address: the Milky Way galaxy is the "country,"  the solar system (sun and it's planets) are Earth's "city, "  and Earth's orbit within the solar system is Earth's "street."

Earth’s address: the Milky Way galaxy is the “country,” the solar system (sun and it’s planets) are Earth’s “city, ” and Earth’s orbit within the solar system is Earth’s “street.”

Have you ever thought about the very fortunate series of “coincidences” that shed light and life on our precious, living planet Earth? Prior to the twentieth century, many of these “coincidences” were unknown or were poorly understood, like: 1.) Earth’s location in the Milky Way galaxy and the solar system, as well as the planet’s orbit, tilt, rotational speed, and unusual moon; 2.) a magnetic field and an atmosphere that serve as a dual shield; 3.) natural cycles that replenish and cleanse the planet’s air and water supply. Do you think this is by chance, or design?*

Are you an evolutionist or a creationist? What difference does it make anyway? Does science have anything to say on the matter? Is science the new God? What difference does it make? Whatever happened, happened, right? What do you believe?

Let us take a moment to look at both science, and the Bible, (the most published and read book each year, worldwide). The Heavenly Father, the Almighty God’s Name, Jehovah, (Yahweh in the Hebrew Bible), once taken out of the Bible, is now being put back in the holy scriptures, over 7,000 references to be exact. “The people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the most high over all the earth.” Psalms 83:18. “How many your works are, O Jehovah! All of them in wisdom you have made. The earth is full of your productions.” Psalms 104:24. “I, Jehovah, am your God, the One teaching you to benefit yourself.” Isaiah 48:17. Now for science.

Earth’s “street,” or orbit within our solar system “city,” is about 93 million miles from the sun, and lies within a limited zone that is habitable because life neither freezes or fries. Thanks to the moon, Earth has its tides, and contributes to the planet’s stable spin axis. Without its tailor-made moon, our planet would wobble like a spinning top.*

Earth has a perfect tilt and spin. Earth’s tilt is about 23.4 degrees and causes the annual seasons, moderates temperatures, and allows for a wide range of climate zones. “Our planet’s tile axis seems to be ‘just right,’ ” says the book Rare Earth – Why Complex Life Is Uncommon in the Universe.”*

Earth has protective shields, like a protective armor, as it flies through this galactic “shooting gallery,” a powerful magnetic field, and a custom-made atmosphere. The center of the Earth is a spinning ball of molten iron, which causes our blue planet to have a huge and powerful magnetic field that stretches far into space. This shield protects us from the full intensity of cosmic radiation and from potentially deadly forces emanating from the sun; including solar wind which is a deadly stream of energetic particles; solar flares which minute by minute, release as much energy as billions of hydrogen bombs; and explosions in the outer regions of the sun, which blast millions of tons of matter into space.*

Earth’s atmosphere is a blanket of gasses that not only keeps us breathing, but also provides additional protection. An outer layer of the atmosphere, the stratosphere, contains a form of oxygen called ozone, which absorbs up to 99 percent of incoming ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The ozone layer helps to protect many forms of life, including us humans and the plankton we depend on to produce much of our oxygen, from dangerous radiation. The atmosphere also protects us from a daily barrage of debris from space – millions of objects ranging in size from tiny particles to boulders. By far, the majority of these burn up in the atmosphere, becoming bright flashes of light called meteors.*

Earth has perfect water cycles, carbon and oxygen cycles, and a nitrogen cycle. Water is essential to life. The water cycle on Earth distributes fresh, clean water around the planet in three stages: 1.) solar power lifts water into the atmosphere by evaporation; 2.) condensation of this purified water produces clouds; 3.) clouds, in turn, form rain, hail, sleet, or snow, which falls to the ground, ready to evaporate again, completing the cycle. According to estimates, enough to cover the Earth’s surface uniformly to a depth of more than two and a half feet.*

The carbon and oxygen cycle takes care of the oxygen we breathe, and the carbon dioxide we breathe out. But with countless billions of humans and animals doing the same thing, why does our atmosphere never run out of oxygen and become overloaded with carbon dioxide? The answer lies in the oxygen cycle: 1.) In an amazing process called photosynthesis, plants take in the carbon dioxide that we exhale, using it and the energy from sunlight to produce carbohydrates and oxygen; 2.) When we take in oxygen, we complete that cycle. All this production of vegetation and breathable air happens cleanly, efficiently, and quietly.*

Life on Earth also depends on the production of such organic molecules as proteins: 1.) To produce these molecules, nitrogen is needed. Happily, that gas makes up about 78 percent of our atmosphere. Lightning converts nitrogen into compounds that plants can absorb; 2.) Then plants incorporate those compounds into organic molecules. Animals that eat those plants thus acquire nitrogen; 3.) Finally, when plants and animals die, the nitrogen compounds in them are broken down by bacteria. That process of decay releases nitrogen back into the soil and atmosphere completing the cycle.*

Humans, with all our advanced technology, create countless tons of unrecyclable toxic waste annually. Yet, the earth recycles all its waste perfectly, using ingenious chemical engineering.*

“If the Earth’s ecosystem had truly evolved by chance alone, it wouldn’t possibly have been able to reach such a perfect level of environmental harmony,” says religion and science writer M. A. Corey.*

Is it reasonable to think that all of these facts happened by chance, or do you feel that the Earth’s features are the product of purposeful design? If so, which of the above facts do you find most convincing?*

The Great Tribulation And What Happens Afterward


Simultaneously in our day to day living, along with finding our purpose and stopping long enough to smell the roses in this life,

Are you a sheep, or a goat?

Are you a sheep, or a goat?

hopefully we are also coming to the fuller realization of our spiritual selves, every day. There are our work deadlines and social commitments, but the finite daily clock of our spiritual earthly reality is also ticking away. Our history thus far has unfolded exactly as Bible history has foretold. If this is any measure of what we can expect, what can we expect?

The Great Tribulation is known as the end of this wicked world. The reason today’s world is referred to as “wicked,” is because since the creation of humankind, we shave been tempted to do all those things that are less than human, things that really go against human nature and natural law, and which serve to be our demise. We have only to look to our human addiction to war in every era, even these 2014 years after Jesus taught us how to treat one another and how to handle the problems we all face. It is like those of us today who deny global warming is taking place. We can deny the wickedness in the world is happening, but it is happening.

Since Satan was cast out of heaven and was sent to the earth, we struggle every day with having to choose good over evil, or evil over good. We have free will. We can do whatever we please. But doing what we please does not always serve our best interests if we choose against God’s way. So often, we choose the often attractive evil way, as if there were no Satan.

The joke would then be on us in the end.

What has been written about our earthly future is this; first, false religion will be destroyed. However, at the same time as the attack on false religion, true Christians, those following true religion, as Jesus taught us, will also be attacked by “the disgusting thing,” as foretold in Revelation 17:16-18. It will become less and less popular to profess our religious beliefs. These beliefs will just be too “uncool” for masses to follow. Many will be tempted to ridicule others if they profess their faith too loudly.

Look at what is happening today. Unless we are talking about the broader aspects of spirituality that include pagan, Wiccan and Buddhist beliefs, the general trend is to shy away from being “too religious,” as if it is a disease. It is as if believing in God is OK, as long as we keep it to ourselves, and not do anything religious in public (so as not to offend anyone else who does not believe the same way, or at all.) And God forbid if we get caught praying. Eyes roll.

What we know Matthew 24:21-22, says, ““… for then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.”

At this point in time, God will save his people. God said he will cut the days of tribulation short, because otherwise, no one would survive, faithful or not. Yes, God the Creator of everything, knows his own, those who belong to him. After God saves his faithful followers, Jesus explained several events to his disciples before Armageddon begins. This is a very important point: God saves his faithful followers before Armageddon takes place.

“When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.” Matthew 25:31-33 “ These will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.” Matthew 25:46

Jesus, the King of the Kingdom, appointed by God, destroys the nations at Armageddon. This is also a very interesting point. God’s Heavenly Kingdom is a government, one that will never be passed on to any other people or nation. God’s Kingdom will put an end to all earthly nations. Only, God’s Kingdom will last forever.

And by the way, God is not so weak, nor helpless, as to be in need of people killing people in his name, to help him out. God will do exactly what he says he will do. God save his faithful people. God makes the unfaithful people be no more. This is foretold to us.

Remember that God’s faithful people will have been saved before this time. God’s justice wins out in the end. There is no need for any of us to pass judgment on each other.  God is our judge. Our thoughts, words and actions are between us and God. It matters little what the popular opinion of the day is. God alone truly knows what is going on in our lives, and why. No one of us of us is without need of redemption. No one is perfect, try though we might.

“And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Armageddon. The seventh one poured out his bowl on the air. At this a loud voice came out of the sanctuary from the throne, saying: “It has come to pass!”  And there were flashes of lightning and voices and thunders, and there was a great earthquake unlike any that had occurred since men came to be on the earth, so extensive and so great was the earthquake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell; and Babylon the Greats was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.” Revelation 16:16-19

Why has all this happened? Isn’t this all just some great big fairytale?

God’s sovereignty was challenged right from the start, beginning with Satan telling lies about God. Notice that the devil, Satan, does not say that God is not the ruler of creation. Rather, Satan challenges God’s right to rule. Have we ever thought, who is God to tell us how to live?”

Adam-and-Eve-in-Garden-MichelangeloBut God has said about the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden: ‘You must not eat from it, no, you must not touch it; otherwise you will die.’” At this the serpent said to the woman: “You certainly will not die. For God knows that in the very day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and bad.” Genesis 3:3-5

All other Bible prophesy has come true, all but these last prophesies. Many religions, including Catholic, believe Jesus is coming back again. They say at every Mass, “Jesus died. Jesus is risen. Jesus will come again.” But do Catholics, and every other Christian religion actually believe it?

The fairytale is the lie Satan continues to perpetuate, that he is not real, and God can be whatever we want him/her/it to be, we can live like we want with no responsibility for our thoughts, words and actions, and that the Bible is just a storybook. As always, we have free will, and can believe whatever we want.
