      It is an amazing thing how when you feel as though you are in a dark room… so dark that you cannot see your hand in front of your face, when you thought there was a door but as soon as you checked the door was nowhere to be found. Then, all of a sudden, […]

      Yesterday, while I was cleaning our formal dinning table… I had to walk between the table and our china hutch. Well, the space between the two is a little tight and I ended up ramming my right pinky toe into the corner of the china hutch. This then caused my toe to move outward and […]

Pentecost 2010 Date

Posted by truthoughts on May 29, 2010

Ok… I really wasn’t trying to focus on the actual date of Pentecost this year because it never fails that everyone continues to be wrong.

The Jewish Calendar said it was on May 19th which could not be farther from Biblical truth… Pentecost MUST fall on a Sunday, the day after the Sabbath (Saturday). No matter when it is otherwise… it must be on a Sunday. Check Leviticus 23.

Ok, so from what I had heard regarding the moon sighting and the barley being aviv… I calculated as did many others that it would fall on May 23rd of this year.

Well, there are other studies out in the webisphere that point to it being on June 20th of this year. Ok, there is one a friend of mine sent me that talks about it being on May 31st but in reading that, I do not know where they pulled that one out of their hat.

Seriously though, it is possible for it to be on June 20th of 2010 and I would like to point you to an article written by one of my friends, Stephen. See what you think.

Many believe, as I have shared here, that the rapture could happen on Pentecost of this year. Well, if it is on June 20th like my friend suggests… there would still be hope for that. We will see when it comes but it never hurts to hope for our blessed hope and watch as we are commanded to do.

So, check out his post on the subject and while you are there… look around. He has some very amazing things on his site. Honestly, there are not too many sites that blow me away but his is one of them.

Persecuted for Righteousness Sake

Posted by truthoughts on May 29, 2010

I know that many who stand for the Truth of God’s Words get persecuted for the sake of righteousness, being the Word. So, I just wanted to encourage all of you who experience this by reminding you of what our Lord says in the Word.

1 Peter 3:14-16 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, niether be troubled; But sanctify the LORD God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

Also,

Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Now, I know that at times we may get flustered when defending the Word of God but remember that in the end it is the Lord’s battle, not ours.

2 Corinthians 2:10:3-6 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

We must understand that the sin in man without Christ is very strong and works day and night to distort Truth in them. Jesus talks about seed in this manner in Matthew 13, Mark 4 and Luke 8. Lets take a closer look at those chapters to see what He has to say about it.

Lets begin with Matthew 13 beginning in verse 3.

And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

Now lets look at Matthew 13 beginning in verse 7.

And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

And also Matthew 13 verse 8.

But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

So, we see the parable as related in Matthew. Lets see what the Lord has to say next.

Matthew 13:10-15 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Wow, did you catch all of that? Jesus spoke in parables so that those in attendance would NOT understand. However, to His disciples He says this…

Matthew 13:16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Check that out! We know that God has blinded the Jews, for a time, so that the Gentiles could be brought into the fold…

Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.

but… what about others?

So many may come to churches and even profess to be believers but it is possible that they are still blind. The problem is that too many people rely solely upon the words and traditions of men to lead them and not the Word of God.

Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron

We see here in Hosea, the importance of knowing and accepting  the Word of God.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…

Ok, so far, we have not yet examined the meaning behind the parable. We will do that beginning in verse 18.

Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Notice how some, after they have heard the Word… yet when persecution comes because of the Word… he becomes offended. Why would he be offended? He is offended because he has no root. Well, what does it mean to have a root? Our root must be based in the Lord who is the Word of God.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

So many these days are offended by the Word of the Lord. Many who call themselves Christians get very irate if you correct them with the Word of God because they are offended… not rooted in Christ.

Now, regarding those who let the cares of this world choke the Word and become unfruitful. The best example of this I believe would be the Laodicean church which is existing today. If you turn on your television to one of the many “christian” tv stations… you can find a lot of these “believers” who get caught up in the cares of this life and therefore produce no REAL fruit.

Many are told if they give money here or there… or if they do this or that, then God will hear them and give them whatever they want… A new car, a large home, the ability to loose 150 pounds in 5 minutes, gold teeth… whatever. It is all the same. They believe they are acting on Biblical faith to produce a fruitful gain, but in actuality, they are dead in their sins because no one is telling them to repent and get rooted in the vine, Christ.

As Jesus says in Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Jesus continues from Matthew 13 verse 24 trying to explain it from a different perspective… We can see this parable in its fullness today.

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

The Lord has warned His church that we should be on guard because there are ravenous wolves waiting to tear into the flock.The Word also warns of men creeping in unaware to the sleeping church, just like the wheat and the tares for the purpose of driving them away after themselves.

Acts 20:29-30 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Jude 1:4-5 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

For we know that the Lord has created vessels of honor (His elect/chosen) and vessels of dishonor (the enemy’s camp). 2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, [and] prepared unto every good work.

Notice how it states that the Lord knows who are His. Not all who call on Him will be saved… not all who profess believe are His.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Ok, so lets take a closer look at the parable of the tares and the wheat.

Lets begin with the tares in Matthew 13:36

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

But guess what!? In verse 43, we see His plan for His righteous.

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

I suggest you continue reading the parables beginning in Mark 4:8 and Luke 8:8 because sometimes the different books will add a word or two that sheds more light on the topic.

Remember that we have the Word of God for our direction and our mirror. Daily, we should be aligning ourselves with the Word of God to be pleasing to Him and obedient in our love for Him. When you are persecuted for the Word’s sake, remember this verse:

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

And… remember that not all who profess Christ are His. We must judge them by their fruits.

Philippians 4:7-9 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

A Wake Up Call To The Church

Posted by truthoughts on May 13, 2010

This 2 part video series is of Pastor Sandy Armstrong. You can check out his website here: Soldiers For Christ

You can see by one of my last posts… I posted a series of his teaching regarding the tribulation lasting from 2010-2017.

This set is a wake up call to all Christians and Churches to shake off their filth, get out of the worldly mud and get right before the Lord comes. We are not called to be of the world. We should not look like the world. We are to resemble Christ in the world. We are to be the light of the world, the salt of the earth, the Truth to the lost.

Our lives, words and actions, should always glorify Christ, edify other believers, mirror Christ and share His Word to the lost. Get off the milk baby Christian and get into some meat before time is up.

Jesus is not coming for a lukewarm Church. You have to be hot for Him, wholeheartedly sold out to Him. Obedient to Him and His Word or you will be left behind. The horror that is coming is unimaginable. Trust me, you do NOT want to be here for it. You have a short time left to repent and cry out to Him… don’t waste this moment. Everything else can and should wait. Get right with God now because no one is promised tomorrow.

2010 – 2017 Tribulation Years: Last Call!

Posted by truthoughts on May 8, 2010

Here is a 3 part video series I came across that I would like to share with you. If nothing else, it is certainly inspiring. I must say though, through much research lately… it sure does appear that the Tribulation period will be between 2010 and 2017. I hope to upload more information regarding the research for that soon. If this is the case, there is a very strong possibility for the Pre-Tribulation Rapture to occur either on May 13, 2010 (Day 40 of the counting of the Omer when Jesus Himself ascended to heaven *Acts 1:9-11*) or possibly on May 23, 2010 which is Pentecost.

As we know from *Colossians 2:16-17* the feasts, sabbaths, new moons, etc. are all a shadow of things to come which means they are prophetic.

Well, tell me… why did the Lord Jesus ascend to heaven on Day 40 of the counting of the Omer? Let me share something with you.

Acts 1:9-11 And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He WAS TAKEN UP; and A CLOUD RECEIVED HIM out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven AS HE WENT UP, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall SO COME IN LIKE MANNER as ye have seen Him go into heaven.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself shall descend FROM HEAVEN with a shout, with the voice of the acrchangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ SHALL RISE FIRST: Then WE which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP together with them IN THE CLOUDS, to meet the Lord IN THE AIR: and so shall we ever be with the Lord Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more information to share on this topic but for now… I would like to share this inspiring video series. Thank you for watching.

Will The Tribulation begin in 2010

Posted by truthoughts on April 16, 2010

A friend of mine, Andy who goes by Firecharger on YouTube posted some videos from a show on Blogtalk Radio. In these videos he shares some of his thoughts on the matter. Now, whether you believe in the Rapture taking place on the feast of Pentecost or Rosh Hashanah, etc. really the point is regarding how close we are. I have posted some information regarding the Rapture on these and other feasts in previous writings. Please research through them and compare all things to the Word of God and let the Holy Spirit of God guide you into the Truth of God’s Word. I hope you enjoy these videos. I found them very interesting and exciting.

*Be advised that the sound quality is on the Blogtalk radio side and gets louder and softer as they speak. Andy has tried to turn up the volume to accommodate the softer times.*

Passover Thought

Posted by truthoughts on April 1, 2010

This one is quick but deep… Isn’t it interesting how every dispensation ended during the Passover and a new one began during Pentecost? Hmmm. Just a thought.

A Yom Kippur Rapture

Posted by truthoughts on September 27, 2009

Ok… so I found something that is just making me so extremely excited and speechless all at the same time! I truly wish that I could just copy it in its entirety for you here but I don’t roll like that, lol. So, I will give you the link to the post so that you can read it there for yourself.

The post is on why the rapture of the church will happen on Yom Kippur, which is the second of the Fall Festivals on the Biblical calendar. I am also going to add a couple of other points that were not included there that I believe could correspond to this being the rapture date.

Alright, so here is the link to the post: “Why The Rapture Will Be On Yom Kippur”

Now, for my 2 cents…

First, the short point:

As you will read in the post, on Yom Kippur, individuals are allowed to come to repentance right up to the last hour. Well, my husband brought up the parable of the workers in the field as you see here in Matthew 20:1-14. Pay close attention to the “eleventh hour” portion of the parable.

For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man [that is] an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, [that] shall ye receive. So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them [their] hire, beginning from the last unto the first. And when they came that [were hired] about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. And when they had received [it], they murmured against the goodman of the house, Saying, These last have wrought [but] one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take [that] thine [is], and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

The second point:

As you read through the post, please also keep in mind the parable of the 10 virgins in Matthew 25:1-12. Notice how both the wise and foolish virgins were sleeping. They were then awakened by the call that the bridegroom was coming. See how this relates to Rosh Hashanah which is when the “awakening blast” trumpet is heard. Also, take note how the foolish virgins went back to life as usual (buying/selling, etc.) because they were not ready (Laodicean church in Revelation 3:14-22). Then notice how when they return, they find the door shut. This corresponds to Yom Kippur because the books of judgment are sealed, shut. Jesus shuts the door in this parable.

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.

Please read the post linked to above and keep in mind the points I have outlined here as well. I look forward to your comments. Peace and blessings to you in Christ Jesus.

By the way… Yom Kippur 2009 is on Wednesday, September 30th (sunset  to sunset).

The Ten Indictments

Posted by truthoughts on September 25, 2009

Here is a video by Paul Washer “Ten Indictments”. If you truly want to draw near to the one true God, Jesus… please watch this. This gives a good example of what God expects of us who are in Him. Thank you for viewing. Also, here is a link to the book mentioned at the end of the sermon, which can be read online free here: Pilgrim’s Progress
