Mohammed Is Dead, Jesus Lives

Image result for images Jesus shows Thomas nail prints in handsIt is common knowledge among the people of Islam, that Mohammed’s remains are still buried in the home of he and his wife Aisha in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

It is common knowledge, that Yahshua Jesus rose from the dead three days after He was crucified. The Jewish leaders made Jesus’ tomb very secure, because they were afraid, that His disciples would come and steal His body. They were afraid, that Jesus’ disciples would spread rumors that He had risen from the dead.

The Jewish rulers had Jesus tomb sealed with the seal of Rome. A small string would be attached to the stone that covered the entrance, and to the entrance with the Roman seal imprint in wax. It would be physically easy to break this seal; however, whoever broke such a seal could expect execution by the Roman Empire for resisting Rome’s authority. Also, four soldiers were placed before the entrance of the tomb to guarantee, that the tomb would not be disturbed by anyone.

In order for the body of Jesus to be taken from the tomb, any potential grave robber would have to get past the four soldiers, break the Roman seal, roll the extremely heavy stone away from the entrance to the tomb, and then get the body of Jesus out of town undetected. It was a big mistake for the Jewish leaders to secure Jesus’ tomb in this fashion.

On the third day, Jesus came forth out of the tomb. The security measures that were put in place only served to prove, that Jesus body was not stolen! The power of Almighty God raised Jesus from the dead, and there is no empire that is powerful enough to stop that. The four mighty soldiers guarding the tomb were not even able to engage in battle, for they lost consciousness suddenly.

A mighty angel rolled the stone away and any witness was able to see, that Jesus was no longer inside. When Jesus rose from the dead, He was able to walk through walls even of stone just like an angel. Physical restrictions of mortals no longer applied to Him.

First Corinthians 15:3-8, “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that He was buried and that He rose again on the third day according to the scriptures, and He was seen of Cephas and then of the twelve. After that, He was seen of over 500 brethren on one occasion, of whom the greater part remain unto this present but some are deceased. After that He was seen of James, then of all the apostles. And last of all; He was seen of me also as of one born out of due time.”

The people of Islam serve a dead man named Mohammed, who could not save his own self; much less, give eternal life. True Christians serve Yahshua Jesus, who conquered death. This same Yahshua Jesus gives eternal life to all who put their trust in Him faithfully. He is able to give them eternal life, because He broke the power of death. HalleleuYaH what a Savior!

Jews Are Special To YHVH

Image result for images MessiahJews have performed an indispensable service to all nations and peoples of all time. Almighty God has blessed them beyond measure and He is not yet finished with them. Please pay close attention to what YHVH says about Judah the father of the Jews.

Genesis 49:8-12, “Judah, you are he whom your brethren shall praise. Your hands shall be on the neck of your enemies. Your father’s children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion’s whelp. From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He stooped down. He couched as a lion and as an old lion. Who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come, and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding his foal unto the vine and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine and his clothes in the blood of grapes. His eyes shall be red with wine and his teeth white with milk.

Super-incredible prophecy! Judah would be the greatest among the 12 brothers and he would fully submit his enemies. Notice it says, that his father’s children would bow to him and that he is a king with a scepter and will continue in this fashion until Messiah come and then all the people would gather to him. Judah is compared to a lion that has taken its prey, as one who crushes his enemies. When he lies down, who will dare to bother him?

Micah 5:2 teaches us, that the eternal Messiah will come out of Bethlehem of Judah.

Isaiah 9:6-7 informs us, that He will sit on the throne of David and establish the Messiah’s rule from Israel in judgment and justice forever.

The most famous Jew in the history of the world is YaHshua Jesus the eternal Son of YHVH. He fulfilled the prophecies in Isaiah 53 perfectly and completed the greatest warrior conquest of all time in defeating Satan, hell, death and the grave. This YaHshua Jesus perfectly fulfilled all the Hebrew scriptures concerning Messiah. He payed in full for the sins of all men in sacrificing His own life on the cross and becoming a curse in our place. He predicted, that He would rise from the dead on the third day. He indeed rose from the dead and this is the most documented event in ancient antiquity.

He will return to earth for all those who are dead and alive in Christ. He will set up His eternal kingdom and will rule forever and forever amen. All who are willing can be a part of His eternal kingdom. Those who wickedly turn down this most generous offer of all time will be crushed for all eternity, including Lucifer with all the fallen angels.

YaHshua Jesus is the mightiest of all the mighty warriors, kings and conquerors. He is the King of kings and the Lord of Lords. He is the WORD and Almighty YHVH has given Him a name above all names. At the name of YaHshua Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

I repeat, “The Jews have performed an indispensable service to all nations and peoples for Almighty God Himself and YHVH has blessed them beyond measure.”

So go ahead world and curse the Jews if that is what you want to do. Go ahead and divide their land if you can, but Almighty God will roar from heaven against you one day and there will be none to save you. Instead, why not change your mind and accept the salvation that YaHshua brings and be healed.

Joy to the world, Messiah has come. Let earth receive her king. Merry Christmas!

Date Of Christ’s Return Surprising

He cometh in the clouds.

An evil imposter is waiting in the wings as it were, and he has answers that will astonish earthlings. The vast majority of the the earth’s inhabitants are not interested in knowing the truth, and this is the exact reason why they will swallow his bait hook, line and sinker.

Second Thessalonians 2:1-3 warns us, that Yahshua Jesus will not return for His bride the Church, until the false Christ is revealed. The anti-Christ will be a test for the Church for the purpose of separating the chaff from the wheat, because the Church is saturated with people, whose loyalty to Christ is shallow. Those who have a genuine deep personal relationship with Christ will not be fooled, but the ones whose relationship with Christ is shallow will be fooled and they will defect from the truth. Of course this same evil imposter will also deceive the whole earth, whose names are not written in the Book of Life (Revelation 13:8).

No one knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return, but Almighty God has left us more clues besides the one mentioned above. In Matthew 24:3, the disciples ask Christ what will be the sign of His coming. Christ replies in Matthew 24:29-30, “The sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken, and that time shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven.” Luke 21:25-26 includes “distress of nations with perplexity”, “the sea and the waves roaring”, “men’s hearts failing them for fear and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth”. This appears to be around the time of the sixth seal mentioned in Revelation 6:12-14, for it has much similar wording as in Matthew 24.

Second Thessalonians 2:4 reveals, that the Temple of God will be rebuilt and that the imposter will sit in this temple claiming that he is God. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns the Church to not be fooled.

Many people believe that Christ will come back before the Great Tribulation and I suppose there is maybe a 1% chance of this happening. The main bulk of scripture, perhaps 99%, indicates that Christ will come back considerably later than that.

Believe what you want to about the timing, but just be aware, that it may not be when you think. Matthew 24:44 warns us, that Christ will return at a time or season that seems unlikely. Luke 21:34-35 says it this way, “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness and distractions of this life, and that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.”

The date of Christ’s return will be surprising. Don’t be caught off guard, but live your life in a state of preparedness.

8 Things Christians Should Agree On

#1 Humans are born with a sinful nature and we have all sinned and we are all worthy of eternal damnation and we are unfit to go to heaven. Whoever does not believe this does not believe that we need a Savior and therefore minimizes the importance of salvation that Christ the Messiah carried out for us at the cross.

#2 Yahshua Jesus is the Messiah, the spotless Lamb of God. Whoever does not believe this and does not believe that Yahshua Jesus was born into the world as a man, is not of God. I John 4:2-3  It is impossible for a Christian to be in unity with such a person.

#3 Christ the Messiah was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and sinless. Whoever     does not believe that Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, evidently does not believe that Christ was sinless, and to speak such a thing is blasphemy. If Christ was not sinless, then He cannot possibly save me from my sins, and this is at the heart of the gospel. Christ who knew no sin, became sin in our place, that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ.

#4 Christ the Messiah died on the cross for your sins and mine. Whoever does not believe this evidently does not believe that the plan of salvation has been accomplished by the Messiah. If this is not true, then the preaching of the gospel is foolishness.

#5 Almighty God the Father raised Christ from the dead on the third day. Whoever does not believe this does not have faith in Almighty God, for in Romans 10:9 it says this is a requirement for salvation.

#6 Christ will return for His bride the Church at the appointed time of the heavenly Father. Whoever does not believe this apparently does not believe that Almighty God offers us eternal life through Christ the Messiah.

#7 The Holy Bible is completely trustworthy for is inspired by the Holy Spirit Himself. Whoever does not believe what the Holy Bible says apparently does not believe that Almighty God delivered His word to us and that it can be trusted.

#8 Blatant sin is intolerable and the Church must never tolerate it among their own. Some of these sins   are as follows: worshiping and serving false gods, idol worship, murder, rape, homosexuality, blasphemy, adultery, theft, covetousness, misusing the Almighty’s name, abortion in general, bearing false witness, dishonoring parents. Whoever approves of blatant sin, or takes an attitude of  “it is okay for people to do whatever they want as long as it does not harm me”, does not accept the fact, that Almighty God is a holy righteous God and He hates sin.

It is virtually impossible for a Christian to have unity with anyone who does not accept these 8 things as foundational truths, for without these 8 things there is no value in the existence of the Church, or for that matter Christianity in general.

Christ Went To Hades

The Old Testament speaks of a place called Sheol in Hebrew. This place is known as Hades in the New Testament and it is in the heart of the earth. Everyone who died before the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, went to this place. Hades/Sheol had two parts to it.

The Holy Bible contains an interesting story about two men in the Book of Luke chapter 16: one named Lazarus and another man simply known as “the rich man”. These two men knew each other and in the process of time, they both died and went to Hades. When Lazarus died, the angels carried him into Sheol/Hades/the place of the dead, to the side called Abraham’s bosom: a place of blessing and comfort. When the rich man died, he too went to Sheol/Hades/the place of the dead, but he went to the side called hell: a place of fiery torment. Interestingly, the rich man could see Lazarus in the distance (Luke 16:23). They were both in the same general area, yet there was a great chasm separating them from each other. The chasm was so great, that no one could cross to the other side.

Luke chapter 23 also shares a story about two men: Yahshua Jesus the Son of God and a thief who died next to Him on another cross. The thief asked Christ to remember him when He came into His kingdom. Christ promised him: today you will be with Me in Paradise. They both died together that day and went to “the place of the dead” known as Sheol/Hades. The reason “the thief on the cross” went to the side of blessing/comfort, is because he placed his trust in Christ for deliverance before he died. The place Christ called Paradise and the place called Abraham’s bosom must surely be the same place, for both Lazarus and the thief on the cross were men of faith in Almighty YaHVeH at the time of their death.

John 14:6 says, “I am the Way the Truth and the Life: no man comes unto the Father but by Me.” You see, before Christ died on the cross, no one could go to the place called heaven, because CHRIST IS THE WAY to the Father in heaven. Sheol, known as Hades, and also known as “the place of the dead” was the place all dead people went to before Christ died on the cross. People of faith in YaHVeH went to the side of Sheol/Hades called Paradise or Abraham’s bosom and people of unbelief went to the side of Sheol/Hades known as hell. Now this is where it gets really interesting. When Christ died on the cross as a human being, He too went to Sheol/Hades/the place of the dead.

In Revelation 1:18 Christ said, “I am He that lives and was dead and behold I am alive forevermore amen, and have the keys of hell and of death.”

Apparently while Christ was in Hades, He snatched the keys of death and hell away from Satan. Christ had only moments before paid for the sins of mankind in full on the cross. By giving His sinless life for mankind, He thereby satisfied the sin-debt of man along with the penalty of death. When Christ rose from the dead, He broke the power of death, hell and the grave over mankind. But let me digress for a moment.

It seems that Christ also preached deliverance to the righteous captives in Hades. You see, all people who had died with faith in Almighty God went to the part of Hades known as Paradise or Abraham’s bosom; and even though it was a place of blessing and comfort, they were confined to that place. In a manner of speaking, they were held captive to that place by death and the grave. Apparently Christ preached deliverance to them.

Luke 4:18-, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted; to preach deliverance to the captives; to set at liberty them that are bruised; to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

To preach deliverance would seem to be the same thing as preaching Himself to them. The Gospel is all about Christ dying and rising again to deliver us from our sins and from eternal damnation. Because Christ is the only way to the Father, these people who had died in faith could not go to heaven until the plan of salvation was finished. Christ finished the plan of salvation by dying on the cross and rising from the dead.

Ephesians 4:8-10, “Wherefore He said when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men. Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth. He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens that He might fill all things.”

Of course everyone that had died in faith listened and received the message of deliverance that Christ preached to them in the lower parts of the earth. After they embraced His message of deliverance, Christ Himself took control of their captivity and lead them to the Father in heaven. No man goes to the Father but by Yahshua Jesus. Now that Christ has died and risen from the dead, whoever puts their faith in Christ goes straight to the Father up in heaven when they die.

When Christ arose from the grave, He so utterly defeated death, that some of the graves burst open in the “Year of our Lord” 33. (33 A.D.) Matthew 27:51-53 says, “And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom and the earth did quake and the rocks split and the graves were opened. And many bodies of the saints that slept arose and came out of the graves after His resurrection and went into the Holy City and appeared unto many.”

What an astonishing passage. Christ indeed IS the resurrection. Apparently as Christ was leading captivity captive, many of the ones who had just escaped the place of the dead busted open their graves and were seen in Jerusalem. How can that be? you may ask. I want you to know, that Christ is not finished yet. He is coming back for His blood-washed Church and the graves will open again. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for our God YaHVeH is faithful to perform all He has promised for them that love him.

9 Reasons People Hate Jews

download (2)Anti-Semitism is arguably the strangest phenomena in existence. What is the driving force behind it? The world’s population presently exceeds 7 billion people, but Jews make up less than 1% of that number. What is it about Jews, that is so strangely unique, that billions of people feel a type of animosity or even contempt for them?

#1. There is a villain on the loose in the universe, whose name is Lucifer/Satan/The Devil/The Deceiver. Many people do not believe in the existence of Satan, but they would agree, that there is much evil in the world. Evil does not accidentally exist. There is an evil person who perverts righteousness and his name is Satan. Satan hates humans and he has built a career around killing, stealing and destroying humanity. Of all the people-groups in the world, Satan hates Jews the most, and he spreads this hatred like a cancer.

#2. Almighty YaHVeH promised Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that through them would all the nations of the earth be blessed. It is human nature for siblings to be jealous of one another. All the other tribes and nations of the earth are jealous that the Almighty chose Israel instead of them to bless the earth.

#3. The Holy Bible was given to us by Almighty God through the people of Israel. In its pages the Almighty reveals His plan to send the Messiah into the world. Satan hates this and has attacked Israel much on account of it. In the Book of Micah 5:2, the Prophet Micah under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit prophesied, that the Messiah would be born in the Jewish town of Bethlehem, and that He is the Eternal One. (read it for yourself)

#4. Christ the Messiah made this very strange statement in the Book of John chapter 4: “Salvation is of the Jews.” Did you know that Christ was a Jew? Christ was born into the tribe of Judah in the Jewish town of Bethlehem. This event changed the course of human history. Satan hates the thought of a Savior rescuing the souls of men and he has persecuted Israel again and again for their part in bringing the Messiah into the world.

#5. In the Book of John 14:6, Yahshua Jesus claimed to be the exclusive way to heaven. The other religions of the world hate the fact, that Yahshua Jesus said there was no other way to heaven.

#6. Yahshua Jesus is the most famous Jew in all of history. Jesus Jew died on the cross for the sins of you and me in A.D. 33.

#7. Three days later, Jesus Jew rose from the dead exactly as He prophesied that He would. No other person in the history of the world has ever accomplished this impossible feat.

#8. Because Satan is the king of sinners, they hate what he hates: Jews, the King of the Jews (Yahshua Jesus), and the disciples of the King of the Jews (Christians). Because man is a fallen being and every man, woman, boy and girl is born with a fallen nature, they don’t understand their own rebellious nature against the truth. This hatred is a spiritual hatred and can only be discerned spiritually. Fallen man cannot discern this hatred. Only through knowing Christ on a personal level will anyone ever regain what mankind lost in the Garden of Eden through sin.

#9. The enemies of the Jews also want the Land of the Jews for themselves. This includes the holy city Jerusalem, which is the exact center of the world.

Greatest Of All Hopes

download (1)All humanity hopes for one single thing above all else, because one single most fearful inevitability stalks even the strongest of the strong. Yonder in the distance it looms menacingly ….. silently …… threateningly. Every religion on earth exists for the sole purpose of bringing precious relief from this intimidating adversary. The name of this bloodthirsty villain is Death.

He visits every human when the time is right and not before. He is restrained only at the Almighty’s pleasure. He is no respecter-of-persons and desires to have us all. He visits the righteous as well as the unrighteous. He visits the rulers as well as the ruled. He visits the wealthy as well as the poor. He visits the intellectual as well as the common man. He visits the religious as well as the secular. He visits the celebrity as well as the commoner.

He will knock on your door one day, and you will answer the door. He will knock on my door one day, and I will answer the door. He is unemotional. He is resolute. He is diligent. He is never guilty of dereliction of duty. He is never angry and he never smiles. He performs his duty flawlessly to perfection. He presses ever forward to make that divine appointment with each and every soul.

Death visited Mohammed on June 8 in the year of our Lord 632. Mohammed is still in the grave. Death visited Buddha approximately 544 years before Christ and he is still in the grave. Death visited Alexander the Great approximately 323 years before Christ and he is still in the grave. Death visited Julius Caesar in March, 44 years before Christ, and he is still in the grave. Death visited George Washington December 14, in the year of our Lord 1799, and he is still in the grave. Death visited Elvis Presley on August 16, in the year of our Lord 1977, and he is still in the grave.

Death visited Yahshua Jesus in the year of our Lord 33, BUT He is no longer in the grave, because He arose from the grave three days later. Many hundreds of eyewitnesses saw Him alive. Some even touched His physical body, proving to themselves, that He was truly alive and not just a spirit.

The only person to ever live, predict His own death, predict His own resurrection three days later, and then physically rise from the dead is Yahshua Jesus; therefore, He is the only one to have lasting power over death. You can follow whatever religion you choose, but only Yahshua Jesus has personally faced death head-on and conquered him; consequently, it is not logical to follow anyone else. No one else can offer eternal life to you, because no one else has conquered death.

The greatest of all hopes is to live forever in a state of eternal blessing. Yashua Jesus is the only person who can grant you eternal life, blessed be His name forevermore!
