Bible Books Of Genesis And Revelation Compared.


The Bible records for us the beginning of the world and the end of the world and tells the story of mankind from the beginning to the end.

In the pages of the Bible, you will find information about mankind's fall into sin, the redemption and God's ultimate victory over evil.

FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END

GENESIS
REVELATION
God created Light (so there was light and darkness).
The Light is no longer needed because the Glory of God gives the light.
Satan is victorious.
Satan is defeated.
Sin enters the human race.
Sin is banished.
People run and hide from God.
People are invited to live with God forever.
People are cursed.
The curse is removed.
Tears are shed, with sorrow for sin.
No more sin, mo more tears or sorrow.
The garden and earth are cursed.
God's city is glorified, the earth is made new.
The fruit from the Tree Of Life is not to be eaten.
God's people may eat from the Tree Of Life.
Paradise is lost.
Paradise is regained.
People are doomed to death.
Death is defeated, believers live forever with God.

JESUS IS COMING BACK VERY SOON

We are in the End Times and the return of Jesus is imminent. For this reason, we believe that it is very important for you to have a clear understanding of all of the above.

To gain this understanding, we recommend that you read Genesis Chapters 1, 2 & 3 and the entire Book of Revelation.

We would also recommend that you read the Bible in a version that is easy for you to read, understand and assimilate. Examples: New International Version (NIV); New American Standard (NASB); The Living Bible (TLB); New Century Version (NCV); New Living Translation (NLT).

10 Things We Know About Eternity.


The Bible devotes much more space to convincing people that eternal life is available as a free gift from God than it does to describing eternity.

The Bible's brief descriptions of eternity are more like hints since they use terms and ideas from our present experience to describe what we will not fully grasp until we are there ourselves. The following references hint at aspects of what our future will be like if we have accepted Christ's gift of eternal life.

1. IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV) says He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

2. A PLACE IS PREPARED FOR US

John 14:2-3 (NIV) says My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

Note: The King James Version saysIn my Father's house are many mansions:

3. WE WILL BE UNLIMITED BY PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

John 20:19 (NIV) says On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!'”

John 20:26 (NIV) says A week later His disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!'”

4. WE WILL BE LIKE JESUS

1 John 3:2 (NIV) says Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

5. WE WILL HAVE RESURRECTED BODIES

1 Corinthians 15:42-44 (NIV) says So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.”

1 Corinthians 15:49 (NIV) says “And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.”

6. OUR EXPERIENCE WILL BE WONDERFUL

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV) saysHowever, as it is written: What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived — the things God has prepared for those who love him—“

7. THERE WILL BE A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH

Revelation 21:1 (NIV) says Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.”

8. WE WILL HAVE A NEW EXPERIENCE OF GOD'S PRESENCE

Revelation 21:3 (NIV) says And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.”

1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV) says For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”

9. WE WILL HAVE NEW EMOTIONS &
10. THERE WILL BE NO MORE DEATH

Revelation 21:4 (NIV) says He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Is Jesus The Only Way To Heaven?


By: Bill and Teddy Rogers

The world system, through false doctrine and false teaching, would like us to believe that there are many ways to get to Heaven.

Its many false teachers and preachers would like us to believe that:

  • If we are good enough;
  • If we do enough good works;
  • If we give enough to the right causes;
  • If we practice the right religion, Or
  • If we belong to the right church;

God will open up the doors of Heaven and let us in.

And, they would also like us to believe that a kind and loving God would not send anyone to Hell.

ALL OF THIS IS A LIE!

Hell is a terrible place that was prepared for Satan and the other fallen angels and God doesn't want any of us to go there.

The Bible clearly states that we will all spend eternity in one of two places – Heaven or Hell. Where we spend eternity depends on the choice we make while we are here.

If you reject Jesus, God's Free Gift, Hell will be your eternal home. You don't want to go there!

THE TRUTH

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

In John 14:6, “Jesus answered “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Acts 4:12 says “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

GOD'S FREE GIFT

If you accept God's Free Gift Of Salvation (Jesus Christ), all your sins will be forgiven, you will be saved, you will be adopted as God's child, you will be made a joint heir with Jesus, your name will be written down in the Lamb's Book of Life, and your eternal home in Heaven will be assured.

THE BOTTOM LINE

If you want to spend eternity in Heaven, you must accept God's Free Gift Of Salvation (Jesus Christ) and make Him Lord of your life.

HEAVEN OR HELL – IT'S YOUR CHOICE!

You have heard the lies. Now you have heard the truth. What you do with it and the choice you make is strictly up to you!

Is Jesus the only way to Heaven? The answer is an absolute “YES” and He is coming back very soon to gather up all His children. Will you be one of them?

Is Jesus Really God?


This post is in response to a comment made by a member of Syndication Express, a membership community that gives bloggers and writers massive exposure, one way backlinks and targeted traffic from the Search Engines.

Member's Comment: Jesus was sent by God to save the world from the sin and death we inherited from Adam and Eve when they disobeyed him in the Garden of Eden. How could he be God when Jesus tells us in the Lord's prayer how we are to pray to God our Father.”

In Answer to member's comment, the Bible says that we are to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus. Jesus is the mediator, which means that He is the go-between God the Father and men. Jesus is like a bridge. You cross the bridge to get to your destination. So you go through Jesus to get to God the Father.

The following is what the Bible says and this is what we believe.

THE TRINITY: ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS


The Christian doctrine of the Trinity defines God as three persons, expressed as: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit; "one God in three persons"

The Bible teaches that the Father is God, Jesus is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. The Bible also teaches that there is only one God. Though we can understand some facts about the relationship of the different Persons of the Trinity to one another, ultimately, it is still a mystery to the human mind. However, this does not mean the Trinity is not true or that it is not based on the teachings of the Bible.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES TO JESUS AS GOD

1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) says “...great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh...”

The Word (Jesus) Became Flesh. John 1:1 (NIV) says In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

In John 10:30 (NIV), Jesus said I and the Father are one.”

John 1:18 (NIV) says “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”

Matthew 1:23 says “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him “Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).”

Matthew 28:19 (NIV) says Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

During the Last Supper, just after washing the disciples’ feet, Jesus made a bold statement:

In John 13:13 (NIV), Jesus said “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.”

The New Testament was originally written in Greek. The Greek word for “Lord” is Kurios, meaning “God – Supreme In Authority”.

Revelation 1:8 (NIV) referring to Jesus says “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

1 Timothy 3:16 (NIV) saysBeyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.”

There are many other scriptures that state God as the Father, God as the Son, and God as the Holy Spirit.

We don't fully understand all of this but God said it and we believe it to be so.

Hope this helps.

Blessings,

Bill and Teddy Rogers

The Last Days:
Satan Has Stepped Up His Persecution.


Satan (the Devil) has begun to step up his persecution because he knows that his time is short. We are living in the last days and Satan' s work has become more intense.

Even though he is very powerful, as we can see by the condition of the world, he is always under God's control.

One of the reasons God allows Satan to work evil and bring temptation is so that those who pretend to be Christ's followers will be weeded out from Christ's true believers. Knowing that the last great confrontation with Jesus is near, Satan is desperately trying to recruit as great an enemy force as possible for the final battle.

SATAN'S TIME IS SHORT

Revelation 12:12 (NASB) says For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”

HIS HATRED FOR CHRIST

Revelation 12:13 (NASB) says And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.”

Note: The woman represents faithful Jews and the child represents Christ.

HIS HATRED FOR GOD'S PEOPLE

Revelation 12:17 (NASB) says So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”

Note: The rest of her offspring represents all believers, both Jew and Gentile.

HIS POWER AND AUTHORITY

Revelation 13:2 (NASB) says And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.”

Note: We are in a spiritual battle and we are guaranteed victory as long as we don't lose the battle for our own souls. Don't waver in your commitment to Christ. There is no time for indecision!

HIS POPULARITY AMONG UNBELIEVERS

Revelation 13:4 (NASB) says “they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?””

HIS BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD

Revelation 13:6 (NASB) says And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.”

HIS WAR AGAINST BELIEVERS

Revelation 13:7 (NASB) says It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.”

Note: The Beast will conquer God's people but he will not be able to harm them spiritually.

He will establish worldwide domination and demand that everyone worship him. And, many will worship him – everyone except true believers.

Refusal to take his mark and worship the beast will result in temporary suffering for God's people, but they will be rewarded with eternal life in the end. When that time comes, pray that God will give you the strength to stand and be true to your faith.

HIS ABILITY TO DECEIVE

Revelation 13:14 (NASB) says And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.”

Note: In the Last Days, there will be counterfeit miracles performed to deceive. Allow the Bible to guide your faith and practice during these times so you will not be deceived by these false signs, however convincing they appear to be.
