Malachi is the last book of the Old Testament and it is interesting that the last words of the book have to do with remembering and family.
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Malachi 4:4-6 Continue reading
As we prepare for the coming of the Lord, there is an event that will happen first – the coming of Elijah –
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:5,6
Here is a mystery! The disciples wondered about this prophesy and asked Jesus why Elijah (Elias) hadn’t come before Him? Jesus answered – Continue reading
I can’t get away from believing that 2018 is a pivotal year for all the world but, especially for America and Israel. In America it is obvious that many have drifted away from the Biblical view we once had as a nation. Our belief in the value of every human life has been eroded by the doctrines of convenience. An entire political party has fallen prey to these anti-American values and while I could pick many of these lost values to highlight, I will stress only one – abortion, which is the willful destruction of a life deemed unworthy to live. The Democrat party showed its true colors at its 2016 National Convention held in Philadelphia where they proudly proclaimed themselves as the Abortion Party! And there are many in other political parties that would also agree with Continue reading
I wrote in a previous article titled 2018 Days of Elijah that humanism is the deception of our generation. Humanism places man in the seat of God as the chief arbitrator of what is good and what is bad. “A typical deception of humanistic thinking is the belief that you can compartmentalize your life into separate boxes, such as political, financial, social, or religious. And that truth is somehow different for each box. That is partly why seemingly moral people can vote for politicians who represent philosophies they personally find abhorrent. The Democrat Party caters to those who disrespect the American flag and all it stands for except – the welfare benefits it gives. And they want immigration laws that allow more like-minded people into the country. Yet, I know many Democrats who Continue reading
Family is one of the greatest blessings God has given to mankind. It is the bedrock of all mankind’s endeavors. Even if you are single, you had a father and a mother. Even if you do not appreciate them, yet they have their influence on your life and through your life on many others lives as well. A broken family line only takes one link in the chain turning to God to recapture God’s plans for your family – you.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” – Eph. 2:10
Family is so important to God that He assigns the great work of restoration of family to one of the end-time prophets – Elijah: Continue reading
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” – Rev. 13:11
This False Prophet looks like the Lamb but, he only has two horns whereas John tells us the true Lamb of God has seven horns, which represent the fullness of the Holy Spirit –
“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” – Rev. 5:6
This “false prophet” will be powerful, having all the power of the first beast. He will also be religious in nature and try to convince people that he is the prophet to come.
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:” – Malachi 4:5 Continue reading
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” – Isaiah 61:1-3
Jesus used these verses to announce the beginning of His ministry which only lasted 31/2 years. He tied His ministry to the acceptable year of the Lord, which is another way of saying the Jubilee Year. Continue reading
