Can We Write 'RIP' In Social Media In Seeing Someone Is Nomore?







Is It Biblical To Say 'Rest In Peace' (RIP)?

Question: Is it Biblical to say "Rest In Peace" as we often see it written on the coffin box and people writing in social media as a condolence on hearing the death of a friend or a loved one or anybody who is dead? Can we write 'RIP' in social media in seeing someone is nomore? Does the Bible even mention of such a wish or a prayer to God regarding the dead?

Answer: Greetings in Jesus mighty name!

The Bible is very clear about the eternal destinies of people who die, all those who have believed Jesus Christ as the Son of God and have died, have died yet live in the spirit because of Jesus Christ and therefore are sleeping in the Lord
(John 14:19; 11:13), and they will live rise up after the Rapture to live forever in the New Heaven and New Earth that will have New Jerusalem suspended over it aerially which will make us possible to live with God, as we in our New Glorious Body will be able to enter it any moment we desire and be in the immediate Presence of God forever and ever (John 11:25-26; 2 Peter 3:13; Heb 12:22). Those who are in the unsaved state of sin and rebellion against God and reject God's grace to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will die in their sins and will go straight to hell fire even after living a religious life (John 8:24; Mark 9:45-46).

In other words, whether we say 'RIP' (i.e.) Rest In Peace or not, those who are saved and have died will rest in peace and those who have died without salvation will rest without peace
(Isa 48:22; 57:2, 20-21).

Yes we often see the acronym RIP (or R.I.P.) is often seen carved on tombstones, and the words rest in peace are often heard at wakes and funerals. It comes from the Latin blessing requiescat in pace
(literally, “may he begin to rest in peace”)

The Bible never even one time has told people to pray for the dead as each person who dies, are judged by God according to the life they have lived and the work the have done throughout their earthly lives. The very appointment of God that each humans face in their lives to give an account for it starts the day they die and after that comes judgement, either for good works for those are saved or for the evil works for those who have remained unsaved
(Heb 9:27-27; Dan 12:13; Rev 20:11-15).

In fact speaking to the dead is an abominable practice God has clearly told His people not to get involved with, as they might end up communicating with demons that will completely misguide them in disguise to make them end up in hell fire and keep them up forever away from God
(Deut 18:10-13; Lev 19:31; 20:27; 1 Sam 28:3-25). God does want living people with life that He has given to them to consult Him and not the dead on behalf of the living (Isa 8:19-20). All the dead people are in the jurisdiction of God after their die (Matt 10:28), the saved will be with God after their death and the unsaved will end up in Sheol which is a direct translation of the Hebrew word which means it is a place of darkness to which spirits of the dead go. The Greek word used in the Bible for it is Hades which is a hostile place whose gates cannot prevail against the church because God has saved them from it through Jesus Christ the Messiah of it (Matt 16:18).

It seems that the Hades has a lot of demonic control within its operation and existence through the expression that Jesus used saying that it cannot prevail over the Church, in fact, Jesus himself holds the keys of Death and Hades that is why hades of darkness cannot prevail over the light of the Church which is the physical body of Christ Jesus on earth as He remains the spiritual and physical head to control its existence and operation from heaven which is His throne
(Rev 1:18; Eph 1:22-23; Isa 66:1). Death and Hades will ultimately relinquish their dead and be cast into the lake of fire after the end of this earth's existence (Rev 20:13-14).

There are certain absolutes of the truth that we need to understand before we can fully understand RIP (Rest In Peace):

1) The condition in which a person will live after death is determined by the life He lives now, and no prayer of others or even himself after death can change his eternal state
(John 8:24).

2) Obiviously once someone dies no amount of prayer for them can change their eternal destinies that they have attained, either they are on the way to hell's torment without God for eternity or on the way to heaven to be with God in peace for eternity based on the life lived on earth through the choice of accepting God's way of Jesus Christ 
(Luke 16:26).

3) Jesus did not pray but only wept seeing his dead friend Lazarus has died because it is appointed by God for all humans to once die and after that judgment with God is fixed by Him. But later he commanded him to arise and he lived which is a demonstration of what is going to happen to all believers. No matter how long it takes Jesus to arrive on earth, He will finally come and raise up the entire body of Believers who have died since His ascension to heaven. David stopped praying seeing that his little baby boy has died and have gone on to be with the Lord
(John 11:34-35; 2 Sam 12:20-23). This shows that in hope of resurrection we are commited to the ground.    

4) After a person dies, they are only rewarded but cannot work to change their eternal state anymore. The reward for the righteous dead are many gifts and glories of God in heaven. But for the unrighteous unsaved dead, there are many torments and many many more afflictions of stripes in hell
(Luke 12:46-48).

5) Paul prayed to God for Onesiphorus his fellow worker in his ministry saying,
"May the Lord show mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains. On the contrary, when he was in Rome, he searched hard for me until he found me. May the Lord grant that he will find mercy from the Lord on that day! You know very well in how many ways he helped me in Ephesus." (2 Timothy 1:16-18). Some have used this passage to argue for praying for the dead. It is said that Paul prayed for mercy for Onesiphorus, a man who was dead. Therefore Paul believed his prayer could have some affect on the outcome of the destiny of Onesiphorus. When Paul says, "May the Lord grant that he will find mercy from the Lord on that day!", it was not about his eternal destiny that Paul was praying but rather about the reward for all his works he did in providing Paul in the ministry of the Lord. Onesiphorus was already a saved believer who helped Paul the apostle in his ministry, so there cannot be an iota of doubt that Paul was praying for his reward to be huge in heaven which will be given him by the Lord on the day of the judgment as a reward apart from sin for salvation that God has for every believer (Heb 9:27-28; Rev 22:12).

6) Praying for the dead is contrary to everything the Bible teaches. Even when Paul the apostle expressed how the believers are
"baptised for the dead", he was not saying that after death people were baptized to go to heaven but rather he was expressing the theological stance of the water baptism that every believer takes which point to him or her dying to old life and living towards God the new life which He has given them through their belief in the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus on behalf of them (1 Cor 15:1-4, 29; Rom 6:3-7). Thus saying, “Rest in peace,” writing “RIP,” and other forms of prayers for the dead are rooted in Catholic tradition, not the Word of God.

We do not see the exact words 'rest in peace' used any where in the Bible, because Bible teaches humans about the most important thing to do while alive, to look to God and live and not worry whether we will be given a good burial after death or not because in the light of eternity, how we live now towards God while alive is what will decide our eternal destiny in our after life
(Eccl 12:7, 13-14). What I say is, a good burial and a ceremony is needed for every human being from the view point of our earthly life (Eccl 6:3), but in the view point of heavenly life Jesus said, 'let the dead bury the dead,' which means he was telling that commonly anybody could give a decent burial and a ceremony for any human but only the living who lives after death will follow God on earth even before they die on earth (Matt 8:22; Luke 9:60). Hallelujah!

Paul said that
“to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:8), which shows that death for a Christian is not the end, but only a beginning for a better life with God in heaven. Thus when any human who receives Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they end up with Him in Zion the New Jerusalem when they die (Heb 12:22).

Because the thought of death can be frightening and at the same time disheartening and much sorrowful, people through the years have invented some platitudes with which to comfort themselves, and it is not wrong to do it when we know that someone has died as a Christians
(1 Thess 4:18). When someone dies, we often hear unbiblical statements such as “She’s an angel now” and “God needed another angel in heaven”; but people become like angel without power to procreate physically after their death (Matt 22:30), but every Christian who dies become sons of God in Christ Jesus who are more powerful and glorious that the best of the angels present in heaven as they are always close to the heart of God through the Holy Spirit who will help them have an open audience with God all the time in their thoughts for eternity (John 8:35; Gal 3:26; Rom 8:19; Isa 65:24; Heb 2:5-10). Sometimes, we hear the bromide through the mouth of unbelievers, “He’s in a better place,” spoken with no thought that he might actually be in a worse place as he too might have died as a unbeliever. People who never have time for God suddenly grow religious at a funeral, this cannot make their wish come true as they themselves need to repent and turn to God and accept his solution of believing in Jesus Christ to get saved and avoid hell (Acts 16:31).

Sometimes we even see unsaved Pastors, pronouncing a prayer of blessing professionally over the dead and saying that the dead is in heaven with God, in such cases both are heading to hell fire, the Pastor needs to repent and be saved before someone unsaved says the same prayer over his dead body too. They try to assure themselves and others that, regardless of the deceased’s relationship with God while on earth, he or she is in heaven now. But we must not ignore what Scripture teaches, and therefore only say good things of eternal life about someone only when we know that they are saved, or else speak only of the good things of the earthly life of someone and not the heavenly for those who have died
(Rom 12:15).

As humans live forever, only two option exist for them to make a choice while alive, to choose heaven or hell
(Matthew 10:28; 25:46; Mark 9:43). Jesus pointed to a rich who sought not God in his earthly life, He told that he ended up in hell fire, but a poorest man without food and in much want and sickness ended up in heaven because he sought God and had peace with Him (Luke 16:19-31). As the Bible says, there is no peace for the wicked (Isa 57:21), let us not say like the hypocritical false prophets, "peace, peace when there is not peace", thus deceiving ourselves and also others who need the Gospel to get saved (Jer 6:14; Ezek 13:10). Let none of us be the blind leaders of the blind. According to Scripture, a person who dies without Christ is not “resting in peace” (see John 3:18).

So the bottom line is to be truthful even while mourning, to say as it is, is the truth that can bring blessing to people and comfort to the heart of those who remain yet unsaved. Sharing the truth of the Scripture to people to make them aware of the good news of Jesus Christ even in the funeral homes, will do more good than bandaging the wounds without cleaning the pus. It is better to hit people with truth, than to give kisses of lies to deceive them from eternal truth that has the power to save them and make them think about it to make a decision to get saved. Truth sets us all free from sin and fear of death! Jesus is the truth we speak about always.

As REST IN PEACE (RIP) is a prayer with which we say to God to keep the dead in peace if they are saved or best wishes to the dead to remain in peace until the day of resurrection, which reveals the real meaning of REST IN PEACE (RIP),
(i.e.) "May he begin to rest in peace!". Let us say to the saved whom we know about their lives lived on earth these above phrases, and not say commonly to everyone whom we come to see being dead. Those who have lived their lives worthy of the Lord can be pronounced with such REST IN PEACE (RIP Wishes) as they are the one who will remain in peace with God and will rise again to be resurrected in their glorious body to be eternally rewarded with God's inheritance when Jesus comes to the earth during Rapture to take the Church to the prepared place for it in the New Heaven and New Earth.

When we do not know whether someone is saved or not, or we know that someone who has died is unsaved, it is better to comfort the family and friends saying that we will pray for their comfort and relief from their sorrow and not say
'Rest In Peace (RIP)' to the deceased, as a wish towards them or as a prayer for them towards God. As we know that whatever may be our wishes, the eternal destiny of each humans is sealed forever and cannot be changed after their death (John 3:18-21), let us pray that the Gospel of the Lord Jesus which we share may become effective in the lives of people whom we share with, so that we could be able to say "REST IN PEACE" - RIP to them truthfully after they die and go on to be with the Lord (Isa 57:2; Dan 12:13). Hallelujah!

Only in heaven there will be peace, in hell no peace but only torment, so get saved before it is too late
(John 3:16).

It is never wrong to say, "Rest In Peace" to the saved, and also never wrong praying for the comfort of the bereaved unsaved's family and friends, and pray for them all to come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ which God desires
(1 Tim 2:3-4). But to wish or pray for the unsaved dead in unbiblical and therefore we need to avoid saying something as a cliche and start speaking about the truth of Jesus Christ that can only set people free from sin and fear of death to give them the assurance of a heavenly life with God through Jesus Christ.

Much Blessings....

Who Is The Good Samaritan?







Is Jesus The Good Samaritan That He Spoke About?

Question: Who is the good Samaritan? Is Jesus the good Samaritan that He spoke about?

Answer: Greetings in Jesus wonderful name!

This is a dimension of revelation that a dear preacher spoke about saying Jesus being the good Samaritan.

Let us dig a little bit and see how it fits.

Hear the Parable of good Samaritan,
"25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?” 27 So he answered and said, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.” 29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ 36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?” 37 And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”" (Luke 10:25-37).

The above parable is a setting of one dimension probing in to the other,
(i.e.) an earthly dimension asking and probing about the heavenly eternal dimension. A finite dimenion trying to understand and apprehend a infinite eternal heavenly dimension. A earthly lawyer of the law testing a heavenly law of life in person who is eternal, uncreated, fully God, fully Man, who is not dependant on anything created for its existence.

The earthly law is not made to keep, but to understand that they are law-breakers according to the Bible by nature
(1 Tim 1:9). Thus by knowing that we are sinners, lawless, ungodly, unholy, profane and insubordinate, we should be able to run towards God seeking the fullness of Christ which makes us free (Gal 3:24-25). When we run to Christ seeking salvation from sin, sickness and death (Rom 4:5), God imputes righteousness in our account in heaven apart from any work of ours (Rom 4:6). That is when all our sins are forgiven and we become a child of God. Hallelujah!



The Earthly Lawyer Vs The Heavenly Lawyer


This earthly lawyer tests the heavenly lawyer Jesus by asking the question,
“Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

Little did this man realize that He was speaking with the very Creator of all humans, who created it for His own purpose. The one reason he was not able to see beyond the humanness of Jesus appearance was because the lawyer had a critical spirit to judge and not act as a real lawyer for humanity which includes himself. This man was trying to sit on the throne of the Judge which only belongs to God, when he should have been acting as a lawyer for humanity and live for the Glory of God.

When a man want to test the very giver of law, who gave it in to the hands of Moses through angels (Gal 3:9). Boy, he must be filled with pride. Pride and prejudice go together. Jesus came in to this earth not to make a show of his power and boast about himself, but rather to express what God is like when he relates and become one with the humanity which He has created for His Glory. Jesus the great Creator became one with his creation in humanity! Hallelujah!

The pride of the lawyer was due to his learning much about the law, but prejudice came in to his heart because he was a unsaved finite human trying to understand the infinite God. The lawyer was only able to see Jesus as a perfect human and was not able to look beyond that in to Divinity of the God-Head within Him.

Jesus always asked question to answer a question, because he knew that giving better understanding might help make them think rightly for them to open up their heart towards God, who is only able to reveal His truth to humans. Others wise every human no matter how wise and noble, they cannot be able to know anything about God and eternal life (1 Cor 2:11; Eccl 3:11).

It is human wisdom that asks God how I can enter in to heaven by my works and by my own strength? It is human ingeniousness that seeks for a way to eternal life by its own effort and strength, it happened in Babel where God came down to check human work which was so big and awesome that it led to idolatry and self-glorification that God totally rejected because it led to demonic rulership over humans, that is why the Bible describes that those people living at that post-diluvial flood timeline wanted to build "a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and [they said] let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth." (Gen 11:4). To build a tower in a city whose top may reach heaven, does reveal that humans wanted partnership with demonic fallen angels, and in lust for power tried to keep them to be subordinates to them to fulfill their wish when in fact they became slaves to themselves, and thus wanted to produce a one world religion of works to maintain "a name" because of the fear of being scattered upon the whole earth.

In other words, every time human wisdom substitutes and works for itself to enter in to heaven, they end up only with a religious name without God involved in it because it will work against the will of God. Here the will of God from the day of creation of humans is to, "fill the earth and subdue it" (Gen 1:28), but Satan was working against the will of God through humans desiring something that God hates which is idolatry (Col 3:5). In idolatry man chooses his own god and end up being a slave to it rather than obey their Creator God to be blessed to fill the earth and subdue it under Him (Rom 6:16).

The Heavenly Lawyer Jesus wanted every human to get back in to the will of God and align themselves to God through the example of Jesus which he had shown to all humanity through his life lived on earth.



When Somebody Wants A Religion And Not God, Jesus Points Them To The Law Of Moses?


Jesus answered the earthly lawyer asking him the following question, "What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?". Every one according to Jesus who understand the purpose of the law, will live with the law. And in the same way, everyone who does not understand the purpose of the law, will live without the law and become lawless overtime. So in the whole wide world, the law of God has been set by Him and especially in the nation of Israel where the Bible has become the civil, religious and criminal law for the good conduct of the whole nation. The Psalmist says to God like this, "The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple." (Psa 119:130). So we know that because of the Law of Moses, the life within the nation of Israel was full of light. God's laws are the best of the best because He gave to humans out of understanding their ability and inability perfectly. Praise the Lord!

There were so many nations around the world till Jesus came, but mostly in all instances they looked to the nation of Israel for the exalted righteousness of God as a example for the rest of the world (Deut 28:37; 1 Kings 9:6-9; Psa 44:9-26; Joel 2:17).

But in many other nations the Lord left themselves to choose their own law of the land and the culture they wanted to keep (Psa 33:12; Deut 32:8). Man's ignorance of the true knowledge of God brought religion, through which cultures embraced pantheism and monotheism and the like (Acts 17:28-29).

But in the midst of such darkness without the light of the Word of God, God wanted humans to seek individually and find Him personally (Acts 17:27). The division in languages that happened in Babel of confusion scattered people in to all the world based on unique languages and destroyed the idolatry of all humans, that is to lift themselves up to gods of this world which are not gods and instead make them seek the true and living Creator God to find solutions both temporally and eternally for themselves and their nations in the midst of existing confusions (Acts 17:26; Rev 7:9; 5:9; Gen 11:9)

Because the earthly lawyer had read the law and understood up to a certain extent in his mind without the heart, he was able to answer Jesus saying, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”

But again Jesus the heavenly lawyer appreciated the earthly lawyer for his correct answer and said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.” The earthly lawyer beaing a religious man, immediately wanted to justify himself before Jesus and there again asked him saying, “And who is my neighbor?”.



Who Is My Neighbor?

Everybody who lives in the planet earth is our neighbour and that includes our enemies, because God has put them in so that we can know that nomatter how much we try, we are not able to keep the law perfectly with out breaking it even once (Jam 2:10).

Jesus told parables which are stories that compares a earthly scenario to reveal the heavenly truth that they each hearer of it need to understand. Jesus always trusted that God would open the heart of the hearers who are seeking Him, and make them understand deep spiritual truths through the parables. Other wise he also believed, that those who do not have a seeking heart, God will shut the door of their heart so that these people will hear the parable but will not understand it. These onlookers or rebels may even become convicted by the parable when it reveals their inner heart, but they will not be able to receive the spiritual blessings out of it in to their lives.

Hear the Parable from the lips of Jesus, “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ 36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?” 37 And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”" (Luke 10:25-37).

In the above parable, there are some hard questions to ask. It is, who is the certain man and who are the theives. Who is the certain priest, who is the certain Levite, and who is the Samaritan? Who is the innkeeper? Who is the neighbour to the Samaritan?

We know that the certain man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, fell among the thieves who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him and deperated, leaving him half dead. Jesus was the heavenly traveller who came from heaven (John 6:38), he was indeed an outsider and people called him Samaritan because they never understood his virgin birth at all in his own nation (John 8:48; Matt 1:18; 22:45; John 10:33, 36).

Jericho’s location was key to its significance. The city was situated in the lower Jordan Valley, just west of the Jordan River and about ten miles northwest of the Dead Sea. It sat in the broadest part of the Jordan plain more than 800 feet below sea level and nearly 3,500 feet below Jerusalem, which was only 17 miles away. This geographical detail explains why Jesus said in His above parable that the good Samaritan “went down from Jerusalem to Jericho” (Luke 10:30). In other words, in this earthly life each human who goes to religion of earthly Jerusalem, is sure of going down towards deathly Jericho day by day which is the valley of death that leads towards the shadow of it which is sickness and disease which leads them towards the place where darkness and torment exists for the sins of humanity (Psa 23:4)

In other words, Jesus came to Jerusalem to bring a transformation and take them to heavenly Jerusalem, but lo and behold the religious Jewish people who lived in the earthly Jerusalem who were appointed by men to be leaders of the people of God rejected him (Matt 23:37-29), and therefore Jesus chose a new nation from all the nations of people to become the people of God (Matt 21:42-43), therefore he he did not stay in Jerusalem but changed direction and started to walk down the Calvary path towards Jericho to fight the fight against Satan and his demons to give salvation to the Gentiles as a Samaritan among them (Col 2:11-23; Rom 11:25).

Jericho the place of victory through praise, where by faith the righteous could flourish as palm trees in Christ Jesus through His righteousness was not reached before Cavary, but he was on the way walking behind the believers fallen lives on the way of pilgrimage towards Jericho with them for three and half years.

All those who pursued God when they fell in to sin and death were never helped by the religious thieves of the Pharisees, Levites and the long religious order of tradition as they have become hireling instead of being a shepherd to have compassion on the sheep-sinners (John 10:11-13). They were down on the road lying half dead not knowing whether they will go to heaven or hell fire for their imperfect religious law-walk of Jerusalem, which they left when Jesus met on the way when they were down and out on the road hit by the religious thieves and left for dead, and they changed their direction and went with Jesus towards the reality of God in Jericho seeking by faith.

Thus when the Priest and Levite the Old System of the Law could not save them from imminent death to their soul and lack of assurance of eternal life, Jesus as the rejected Samaritan and a class outsider from the pure Jewish circles, entered the scene and had compassion on the people who were on their way to eternal death of hell fire and healed them and saved them and gave them eternal life through his grace of death, resurrection and ascension to the believers through their faith (John 1:17; Matt 9:36).

Jesus took the wounded man on the road who can be likened to a sin sick believers on whom He had compassion (Matt 9:36), and so he went to him and bandaged his sin sick wounds by pouring on oil of the Holy Spirit by sealing him with salvation and giving him the opportunity to partake in the wine of the fullness of the Holy Spirit (1 John 2:27; Eph 1:13-14; 5:18; 1 Cor 11:23-26, 27-29); and he set him on his own animal which is nothing but the sacrifice of his own body in which the believer gets all the benefit of what he has achieved through his death, burial, resurrection and ascension (Rom 6:5-6, 11; Acts 1:11), brought him to an inn of the Church where he is fed to good health with healthy doctrines which makes them rich for eternity (2 Cor 8:9; 1 Tim 3:15), and took care of him by saving him from sin and sickness and death of the soul (Rom 8:32; 1 Pet 2:24), and made sure that they be sovereignly taken care of by God who is the inn keeper of the inn which is the Church (John 14:2; Luke 15:17-22).

We know that there are no free lunches anywhere except for the sons of the house in heaven whom their heavenly Father owns (John 8:35; Gal 3:26), so Jesus Christ has to pay for our sins and have to redeem our soul from death, so that we could live as the sons of God by believing Him through faith (1 Cor 6:20; 1 Peter 1:17-21; Heb 9:12). Jesus paid the price through his death for the recovery of the holistic health of the wounded human who were recovered from the road to be kept safe for healing by the inn keeper (Matt 8:14-17; John 17:14-19).

The price Jesus paid to the Father God was very costly, it cost him his sinless life to be put on the line of the fire of God's judgment. By paying the price, he redeemed mankind from hell fire to make them the sons of God and thus take them to heaven.

Jesus directly took care of the wounded sinners for three and half years when he was with all the believers physically (Acts 1:1-3), but then after that time he paid "two denarii" which means two days wages to stay in the inn and told the inn keeper to take care of the wounded sinner (John 3:16; Eph 3:14-15; John 17:20-26). Two days are two thousand years in the sight of the Lord (2 Pet 3:8). Now that nearly two thousand years have passed by, just as Jesus told and promised, He will return back soon to receive all the believers to Himself in His Father's house in the New Heaven and New Earth which has been prepared for their eternal stay (John 14:1-4)

Lot of people are working with the inn-keeper to run the inn (Matt 9:38), whatever is spent on behalf of the sin-sick sinners within the inn of the Church, all those things Jesus has told that it will be repaid back when he comes to take the Church to be with himself after the Rapture of the Church (Matt 10:40-42; 19:27-29; Mark 10:28-31; Rev 22:12). Hallelujah!



Jesus Is The Only Good Samaritan From Whom We Learn Compassion!



When a man told Jesus as a good teacher to Him, immediately he responded to him saying, why do you call me good, no one is good except God (Mark 10:18). In fact, he was saying to this ignorant religious man, you can only really know me as good in reality and truth only when you come to know me as God and call me as God and experience my goodness in your life as the one and only good God.

So as far as Jesus is concerned, there were Pharisees and Levites who walked before him, they would not turn to help the wounded man on the road because really they do not have the reality of the life of God within them to supply this half dead man on the road of life who was bleeding and inching towards eternal death because of his sin sick soul. All humans have sinned and have fallen from the Glory of God
(Rom 3:9, 23), and therefore every man has to first sacrifice to God for their own sins and then only can be able to sacrifice to God on behalf of sinful fellow humans and brethren every day (Heb 7:27-28; 10:11). Most of the Pharisees who were not able to sense the sinfulness within their own heart, became total hypocrites who said one thing to people and did totally another thing of rebellion against God in their own life and living. They became hireling altogether, when Satan and the enemies of God came against the sheepish people of God, they fled for their own lives (Matt 23:1-10, 23-27; John 10:7-13, 14).

So Jesus as the one and only qualified sinless lamb of God became the heavenly High Priest on behalf of people by giving himself as a sacrifice to God once and for all time
(Heb 7:27; 8:1; 9:12), became He is the one and only Good Samaritan who gave His very own life for the wounded sin sick sinners who were left on the road of life as half dead by the religion bigots, all of which the Jews rejected because of their tradition which blinded them completely in to sel-righteous deception and thus killed Jesus who stood against their blindness, thus Jesus the very prince of life who was pre-appointed by God for death was sacrificed for the sinners who needed his mercies and grace (Mark 7:9-13; John 1:36-37; Acts 3:15; John 15:13). In other words, the enemity of the Pharisees towards Jesus grew to such an extent of killing him because Jesus was the friend of sinners while they as religious bigots were the enemy of the same sinners, as they considered themselves self-righteously as holy men of God being deceived and deceiving others who followed them (Matt 11:19; John 8:10-12)

So we as sin sick sinners have been invited by Jesus to come and learn from him the humble heart needed to follow God and gentleness towards fellow humans which God requires for a relationship with humans which is eternal life
(Matt 11:28-30; 1 Pet 5:5; Jam 3:6-10; 4:6; Mic 6:8; 1 John 3:15; John 17:3). By measuring how we are able to love the sinners who are ready to die on the road of life and show compassion to them is what we can only learn from Jesus alone. Hallelujah! That is why He is the one and only GOOD SAMARITAN sent by God to rescue all of us and take us to our Father's House or the Inn in the new heaven and new earth.

Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!



Doing The Works Of Faith Does Not Save Us, But Authenticates That We Are Saved!


The first step is to get saved from sin by Jesus, and then after receiving the new nature of God as the sons of God by faith, we should learn to live the new nature of God by loving God and showing compassion and love towards our fellow humans.

There is a very important truth that apostle James says in his Book that clearly co-relates to what our Lord Jesus Christ wants to sink in to our heart through Good Samariatan parable, here is what he says,
"14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?" (Jam 2:14-20).

In the above passage, we see that the apostle James clearly wants us to understand that if faith is present, surely enough we will do the works of faith without fail. Those who say that they are saved, and does not have any good works of faith are deceiving themselves and are continuing to live as the unsaved sons of hell fire. Saving faith will have works of compassion that will succeed it. In other words, we do not work our way to get saved, but rather when we are saved we work our way to heaven's reward and glory! Praise the Lord!

We are not saved by good works, but rather we are saved by God for good works which He has preplanned for us before the foundation of the world
(Eph 2:10). Any faith that does not have works of faith done in compassion is a dead faith of the unsaved human.

When Jesus finally told the self-deceived lawyer of the law with a critical spirit,
"36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?” 37 And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”" (Luke 10:36-37), for the first time this man's eyes of the heart got opened and was able to realize that those who show mercy to every one are one who have been saved by God to inherit eternal life. In other words, Jesus made him understand that living a religious life like a Pharisee or a Levite cannot save him, but those who trust in the soul saving work of God through Jesus Christ who only as a good Samaritan could help people do good work through infusing his new nature can be able to not only save us, but also help us do the good works which he has prepared for each of His children as long as they live on earth for the Glory of God.

The bottom line of this parable Jesus conveyed is, religions can say do, but it cannot save the soul as it does not have divine power operating through it. But when we believe Jesus, He says to us done, our sin sick soul He saves first and then He helps us overcome sin and spend our lives with works of faith to live pleasing to God and be rewarded eternally for the Glory of God! Hallelujah!

Does the above lawyer or any other human in the entire planet have the power to live a life pleasing to God without Jesus? Can any human love God and his neighbour without being saved by God through Jesus? Can any human inherit eternal life without the Good Samaritan Jesus Christ? The answer to all of the above questions are a BIG NO, so we must come to believe Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and ourselves as sinners to repent and become saved from sin by calling on His name and confessing Him before other humans after we are saved as a sign of our faith that has come within
(1 Cor 12:3; Luke 18:13; Acts 2:38-39; Rom 10:13; Matt 10:32).

Recognize the Good Samaritan Jesus Crist who has saved you, and you will never be disappointed by the tragedies that had happened in your life on the the road of life unexpectedly. Because of the fallen nature of sin which leads to death, all humans must come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan and his demons operate always in deceit through our very own sin nature within and want to make us justify ourselves before God and fellow humans, therefore every child of God should be careful enough to self-examine themselves first and then should judge others justly and righteousness by the help of God just like Jesus has done for us by showing compassion for us by saving us from sin freely through shedding His own sinless blood, and so we should do likewise to all the needy wounded-sinners like us to reveal the nature of God and bring Glory to God
(1 Cor 11:31; John 7:24).

Those who are religious and self-justify before God knowingly, even God cannot save them from sin and death to give them eternal life through the Good Samaritan Jesus Christ whom he has sent to save sinful humans. God will not force any human to become saved because it is against his nature which wants humans to choose voluntarily by their own will and volition to get saved and have eternal fellowship with God. Hallelujah!

Don't believe the lawyer within you to justify yourself, but you judge yourself first and then let God justify you. When you justify yourself, you remain unsaved. But when you judge yourself as sinner in need of God's mercy and grace, God justifies you as righteous in His own sight by substituting Jesus' perfect righteousness on your account
(Luke 18:9-14). What a good God He is and what a righteous God He is at the same time, how He could be righteous to judge our sin and at the same time could show compassion to us righteously through punishing His very own beloved begotten Son Jesus Christ (Rom 3:21-26; 11:22)! This is what the righteousness of God is that has been revealed to us! Remember it is not our own righteousness, it is God's righteousness working on behalf of us to make us bright and right before the sight of God and our fellow humans supernaturally. Hallelujah!

Much Blessings...

What Is The Biblical Evidence For The Rapture Of The Church?









Is Rapture True Or False? If True, Will The Christians Be Able To Identify The Antichrist Before The Rapture?

Question: Brother, is “Rapture“ true or false? If true, will the Christians be able to identify the Antichrist before the Rapture?

Answer: Greetings in Jesus wonderful name!

According to me, the doctrine of Rapture is the most important one in the entire New Testament.

One dear Brother told me, 'Don’t be deceived. There must be Tribulation then the Rapture.'

To the above question, I replied saying, You do not need to escape if Tribulation comes before Rapture
(Luke 21:36).







The word escape means that it is 'an act of breaking free from confinement or control.' Whose control? The Antichrist control over the whole earth which will happen in the second half of the Daniel 70th Week, (i.e.) after the abomination of desolation (Rev 13:5; 12:16-17).

Some people believe that the Church will go through Great Tribulation by taking the following verse of
Rev 7:13-17 as their proof text, but what they miss is, the following Scripture in which a elder explain to John the writer of the Book of Revelation what crowd he is seeing, "13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” 14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”" (Rev 7:13-17).

We know that these martyrs who have come out of the Great Tribulation are not the Church saints, but the Tribulation saints who have been left behind during the Rapture because of not taking seriously the admonition and warning of Jesus to
"Watch and Pray" (Luke 21:36).

As a result of it, they will wake up our of their spiritual sleep and get saved eternally from hell fire through the Tribulation by standing in patience and faith against the Great Persecution of Antichrist against saints, as they will be seeing all the signs spoken before by the Church happen before their very eyes, even as they will hear the angelic call from heaven which saves them and then warns them not to receive the mark of the beast
(Rev 13:6-10; 14:6-13). During that time because of the grace of God which will strengthen supernaturally the lives of the Tribulation saints, they will let themselves go in to captivity and let themselves be killed by the sword because of choosing not to take the mark of the beast on their forehead or right hand (Rev 13:10, 16; 14:9-10, 11, 13).

These saints are seen standing before the throne of God, but usually we mistake them to be in heaven at this point of time, but in reality they will be serving in the temple in Jerusalem on earth for a thousand years time in their supernatural body which will
"neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat" (Rev 20:4-6). Because these Tribulation saints have missed the Rapture, this is the first ressurrection for them and there will be no second death as they have been rewarded to become priests of God and Christ on earth and therefore will reign for a thousand years with Jesus Christ right here on this present earth (Rev 7:17).

So I don't think there is any doubt in who will go through the Tribulation and who will not because of the fulfilled promise from Jesus to rescue the Church and make it escape from the Great Tribulation
(Luke 21:36).



What Then Will Be The Last Trumpet?


Still certain other believers wrongly believe that the Last Trumpet will be the Rapture Trumpet that apostle Paul spoke about in the Book of
1 Thess 4:16, but actually the Last Trumpet blown before the reign of Jesus Christ will be the 7th trumpet in the order of succession at time of His Second Coming to the earth (Rev 11:15-19). I believe that the seventh trumpet is the last Second Coming Trumpet that Paul described in 1 Cor 15:50-58, and not the Rapture Trumpet described by him in 1 Thess 4:16. These are two different Trumpets blown for two different purposes. One for taking up the saints from on earth, the other for making the saints to reign on earth.

Once the Seventh Trumpet has been started by the prophets, the trumpet’s sound will culminate only when Jesus comes back again during His Second Coming to the earth. This is the reason the Bible describes the seventh trumpet as
“the days of the sounding [i.e. present continuous period of time, which will culminate at the second coming of Jesus to the earth] of the seventh angel…..”(Rev 10:7). Just when he [the seventh angel] is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished as Jesus and his Church Body will be already out of the doors of heaven on their way to establish a thousand year reign on earth, as He declared to His servants the Prophets (Rev 10:7).

You need not worry how such a trumpet sound which makes the
"temple of God" opened in heaven and the ark of His covenant which was seen in the temple can suddenly make Jesus appear on earth (Rev 11:19)? The ark was not something made of hands like in the Old Testament (John 2:19-22), but rather it will be the very person of Jesus who will get ready in heaven to come to the earth to rule it for a thousand years in which the Tribulation Saints will be the first one's resurrected in the first resurrection (Rev 20:4-6). The saints of the Church will come along with Jesus and the saints from the earth will rise up and then join with them in the Millenium Kingdom of God on earth (Rev 19:14-16). The already resurrected and Raptured Church saints will rule the present earth from the New Heaven and New Earth (2 Peter 3:13). But the Tribulation Saints will rule from the present earth, from this earthly Jerusalem temple with Jesus. Hallelujah!

The resurrected Tribulation saints will be judged before the unrighteous wicked of all the nations of the earth, and will be gifted the kingdom of God to inherit it with Him on earth to rule and reign as He had already promised them, but then the goats of the earth who were unsaved people of all nations who never helped these people to protect them from imminent death of Antichrist during the time of Great Tribulation in which they were martyred will be sent to eternal punishment to spend their eternity with the devil and his angels
(Matt 25:31-46; Rev 3:21). Glory to God!



Importance Of Watching And Praying Inorder To Be Part Of The Rapture!


If we do not watch and pray to keep ourself sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit within, we as believers will not have the strength to stay away from all
"dissipation, drunkenness, and the cares of this life". Even though the signs of the end will happen before our very eyes in these times of the end of the end, we will not be able to keep ourselves in a awakened state to know whether we are really saved or not.

But if we choose to hear the voice of Jesus and walk according to it, we know from within that our one and only good shepherd is Jesus the Christ who is our Master who has saved us from death and hell fire
(John 10:27-29).

To keep ourselves in the way of salvation is to know whether we are able to keep our hope in the blood of Jesus through confession of our sins to God inorder that we might be able to keep ourselves purified at all times
(1 John 3:2-3; 1:9; Heb 10:23) or if we are not really saved we will become lawless to keep sinning without confessing our sins to God by losing hope and therefore our conscience will become numb to the sensitive voice of God that comes to us through the Spirit. Those who are born of God, does not choose to sin naturally and also cannot sin without restraint because God's seed of the Word of God which remains in them that will convict and make them repent through confession of sins to Jesus Christ (1 John 3:8-9; 2:1-2, 12-14). This will be the real test for Rapture, those who keep watching and praying will be those who will continue to keep themselves purified through confessing their sins.

Praise the Lord!



Rapture Truth Cannot Be Denied If Understood Rightly


Most of those who deny the truth of the Rapture, deny it because of man-made doctrines they have been taught by others or else wrongly understanding the Scripture because of lack of learning from the conviction of the Holy Spirit who teaches us all things regarding Jesus Christ and all his truth from the Bible.

First of all Christians in every generation have gone through some kind of tribulation in their lives because without it no one can enter the Kingdom of God
(Acts 14:33), as God has appointed these things for the believers to stand for Him faithfully and be rewarded eternally in His Kingdom reign that is coming permanently soon (1 Peter 2:18-25).

But then one third of the teaching of Jesus and his apostles, many of whom were inspired to write the Scriptures clearly spoke about the salvation of believers through Rapture which will happen at the end time generation.

Lord Jesus spoke about a terminal generation to be watchful and prayerful because he clearly predicted this Rapture of the Church will happen in this specific particular generation for the Glory of God
(Matt 24:34). This generation was explained by Jesus Himself through a parable of the fig tree in which He pointed it to the nation of Israel (Hos 9:10), and sounded the alarm to the believers saying when you see the nation of Israel come again in to existence, this Rapture of the Church will be at the doors of heaven ready to be opened to come and take all the living and the dead believer to their new home in the new heaven and new earth (2 Peter 3:13). On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel. U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized the new nation on the same day. We know that we are that generation that is awaiting for the Rapture of the Church. A generation is 70 or max by extreme strength 80 years timeline which brings 1948+70 years to 2018 May, after which we can at max count from 2018 + plus 10 years, which might go upto 2028 (Psa 90:10). Hallelujah!

But when we see what has been happening after 2018 May, somewhere after 2019 May towards the end of the year we know what Corona COVID-19 has done to the world, the whole world has come to a standstill and the question of a one world goverment, economy and religion is on the rise like never before or ever again. We see this as the very sign that whatever Jesus has told about this generation to identify it as the terminal generation is being fulfilled day by day like never before. We are almost stepping in to the very end which is the Daniel's 70th week
(Dan 9:27). The sign that Daniel's 70th week has begun will be seen through the covenant that the Antichrist will make on behalf of all nations towards Israel that will set the pulse of the clock racing towards the Second Coming revelation of Jesus Christ the King of Kings to the whole world. Glory To God!



Will Rapture Be An Escape Strategy For The Church?



First of all we know that the Church is not immune from any Tribulation, that is why Jesus himself said, "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33). The main thing that Jesus has pointed in the midst of trials and tribulation to cheer about is, that the world system of governance have been overcome by Jesus Himself on the Cross and that it does not have power over Him. When the world does not have power over Jesus, we as the Church who are His Body on earth also have overcome the world along with Him in our identification with His death, resurrection and ascension for the Glory of God! The world does not have power over us the Church now (Eph 1:18-23; 2:8-9), but the truth of the matter is, all the believers in all the ages have been fighting against the thinking of the world system which has been working in us through our flesh, by the renewal of our mind by the Word of God and His Spirit we become transformed to be more like Jesus Himself to make ourself be ready for the colonisation of the new heaven and new earth (Rom 12:1-2). The fullness of this fight against the world will be seen by all the world only in the Rapture of the Church first and at the time of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ next who will come with the Church to raise up the Tribulation saints for a thousand year reign with Him on earth (Eph 1:13-14; 1 Cor 15:50-58).

We as the Church cheer ourselves and rejoice in the Lord always until the time Jesus will prove His genius idea in the will of God through making us escape from the flood of filth of the world through Rapture, where the world will face the wrath of God for its sin and all evil that Satan and his demons have been promoting to fullfill its agenda of the one world government, economy and religion which will become a snare to al humankind
(John 17:11,13-14, 15, 16-19; Php 4:4). God has faithfully kept the believers in the world through His Word until our generation and have sanctified them all by His truth, so that now that the time has come to near fruition, the time has come to present the Church to Himself in marriage through Rapture (Eph 5:26-27). Hallelujah!

Satan and his demons doesn't like the institution of marriage because he knows that marriage institution is a sign of prelude on earth of what is going to happen in heaven after the Rapture of the Church in which the marriage of the Lamb of God will take place
(Rev 19:7), that is why, he has become mad enough to promote LGBT rights and same sex marriage even through the Church itself inorder to destroy the one and only holy institution of God which is marriage. And further teach even children's the slavish habit of masturbation and all things like information about sex [i.e.] pronography as per the guidelines of WHO to expose innocent children's even less that the age of four to its perverse effect inorder to contaminate their mind as its recent agenda papers revealed and encourages such disgraceful things. What a abomination when the WHO which has been actually formed to promote the holistic health of humankind has been on the course to destroy the humankind through such acts of such disgrace to destroy the very fabric of the societies culture.

As Satan and his demons are hell bent to increase lawlessness on earth to try to destroy the Church through the filth of it, God has another plan of victory to overcome the world through His genius idea that has been conceived before the very foundation of the world
(Eph 1:4). The idea was when Satan spewed the flood of filth to destroy the Church and take control of it completely, suddenly we see the earth opening up its mouth and swallowing it to help the Church which was symbolized as a woman (Rev 12:15-16).

We see in the Bible, the nation of Israel is the only nation that has been described by Jesus as earth in the New Testament. As the rendering of 'erets’ in the New Testament, "the earth" denotes the land of Judea
(Matt 23:35); also things carnal in contrast with things heavenly (John 3:31; Col 3:1, 2). The earth denoting the nation of Israel will accept the filth of Antichrist, but in doing so, the Church will be released from the fleshly carnal things to be taken up by Rapture of the fulfillment of the heavenly things that are ahead for it with in the second half of the Daniel's 70th week (Rev 12:14). The wings of the great eagle is none other than God Himself who will rescue them before the Great Tribulation that will happen on earth through the release of His Wrath (Exo 19:3-6). The wilderness where the Church will be raptured is a place of rest, a home prepared by Jesus for them for the last two thousand years (John 14:1-4), where they will be kept until the Second Coming along with Jesus Christ to the earth (Mark 6:31; Hos 2:14; 1 Thess 4:14-18; Rev 21:1-8, 9-11, 22-27).

When the Antichrist along with Satan and the False Prophet will take the earth with iron grip for the last half of the Daniel's 70th week
(Dan 9:26-27), the Lord's escape idea out of the tyranny of it will be through Rapture of the Church "to her place" (Rev 12:14; John 14:1-4) which will only make Satan more agitated to spread the seal of 666 in all the earth (Rev 12:14-17; 13:5, 14-18).

Thus Jesus says to all believing Church saints,
"Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:36). Therefore the escape strategy of Jesus is perfectly enough and fool proof for all the believers to escape the Great Tribulation of the wrath of God that is coming upon the whole earth (Rev 3:10). But we as believers should learn to be obedient to the words and clear inctructions of Jesus to "Watch.. and pray always" in these last of the last days and end of the end times so that we may be counted worthy to escape all these things of the wrath of God that will come to pass (1 Thess 1:10; 2 Thess 1:6-7, 8; Rom 2:7; 5:9).

So Rapture is not any figment of imagination of anybody, but is the red crimson thread that runs as the redemptive climax of the whole of the New Testament. You take that out of the doctrine of the saints, the whole super structure collapses to lose it magnificence of the truth revealed by Jesus. We are nearly stepping in to a time, where Rapture in itself may happen anytime after the abomination of desolation for the Glory of God
(Matt 24:15-22)! Those who are looking to find the revelation of Jesus Christ from the Scripture will be able to identify not only the covenant that the Antichrist will make with Israel as a nation, but also will be watchful and prayerful for the first three and half years of Daniel's 70th week so that, when the abomination of desolation takes place, they will not move towards Jerusalem or the cities but away from it so that they might not be caught up in the deception of the mark of the beast in 666, but will rather lift up their heads and look for the Rapture to take place and will get raptured away from the world for the Glory of God forever and ever. Amen. Hallelujah!
