All wisdom cometh from the Lord


John Chapter 1
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John Chapter 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.

Is there oil in the lamp?

My favorite subject: Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Matthew 25:1-25. "The Lamp"

Matthew 25:1-13 1. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9. 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.
10. 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. 11. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you,  know you not. 13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 24:
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.

(Eph. 6:12)"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places"

Do You Need Extra Oil In The Lamp For The Rapture?

The Day of the Lord
Introduction to the book of Revelation

The book of Revelation is possibly one of the most neglected and at the same time one of the most controversial books in the Bible. The highly divergent views of writers and preachers who interpret it, further complicates matters in gaining clarity about the message of Revelation.

Many Bible colleges and theological seminaries deliberately avoid this blessed book and no longer include it in their study programs on the New Testament. Even when they do review the book, it is done in a very superficial way. The tragic result of this attitude is that the book of Revelation is also avoided in preaching.

People are doing with this book
precisely what God said that we should not do:

"And he said to me: Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand" (Rev. 22:10; also see Dan. 12:4).

The book of Revelation was written to be read and understood. Its message was never as relevant as it is during the present time. We are on the threshold of the great moment of the rapture of the bridal Church of Christ as well as the judgments of God that will be poured out over an apostate world. This is the book of consummation, of completion and perfection. That is why it is so fittingly the last book of the Bible.

the Antichrist (The rider on the white horse). In a show of clever diplomacy he will deceive the people into accepting a new world order under a one world government which will operate in close association with an alliance of religions in order to accomplish international unity. When his peace initiatives and reform policy of peace and unity collapse after 3 years, the Antichrist will turn to violence in order to enforce his authority on all mankind. He will then become a cruel military dictator
(the rider on the red horse).
We are very close to the end of the church age and therefore on the threshold of the rapture and the revelation of the Antichrist. It is critically important that we understand this period. Our lamps must be filled with oil

And when ye shall see
Jerusalem compassed with armies
then know that the desolation there of is nigh.

Who will rebuild BABYLON in IRAQ?
The mood of the political world seems to be for peace and prosperity. One seems to propagate the other. Prosperity needs peace (stock market, et al) and peace produces uninhibited prosperity. This seems to already be the New World Order's (NWO) agenda: a world economy with minimal trade restrictions and a peaceful world coexistence by early in the new millennium. Peace is being sought in Ireland, Bosnia/Kosovo, India (w/ Pakistan), N. Korea, not to mention the Middle East. If we're not yet within the first seal of Revelation, then we may be very close indeed!

The day of the Lord

My prayer is that the book will have the same effect and make a positive contribution by helping seeking people to meet the Lord Jesus, and by motivating the children of God to be vigilant and ready for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Unknown Day or Hour of the Rapture

Antichrist will attain phenomenal success, and his supporters will acclaim their admiration: "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" (Rev. 13:4). He will gain victories on all the continents until his rule extends over every tribe, tongue and nation (Rev. 13:7).



siix siix siix The Antichrist will bind people and make them political, religious, and economic slaves of the kingdom of darkness.

"And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue and nation. And all… will worship him… no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of…  The Beast"
(Rev. 13:7-8, 17).

Jesus empiricism this sign in Matthew 24 when He told us to watch for the rebuilding of the fig tree (a symbol of Israel). When that happens, He said, the generation that sees it "will not pass away until all these things take place" (Matthew 24:34).
