Pope Francis Tells Christians to Be Ready for the End of the World

Breitbart: “Two days after the horrendous jihadist attacks in Paris, Pope Francis preached about the “end times,” encouraging his hearers to be vigilant and ready at any moment to meet God face to face.

In his Angelus message Sunday, the Pope invited the ten thousand pilgrims gathered in Saint Peter’s Square to think about their death, the day they will meet God and give an accounting for their life.

The Pope also explicitly addressed the Paris carnage, expressing his “deep sorrow for the terrorist attacks that bloodied France late on Friday, causing many casualties.” Along with offering his condolences to the victims and their families, Francis condemned the massacre as an “unspeakable affront to human dignity.”

Opinion: Interesting that the Pope is teaching on the end times: “Our final goal is the meeting with the resurrected Lord. The most important thing is not knowing when the end will come, but being ready for it when it does,” he said.

The head of the salvation by works-based Church neglected to say what being ready means: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast” Ephesians 2:9-10. 

Or this : When a person accepts the free gift of salvation offered to all through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there is “no condemnation (Romans 8:1-2), and the only accounting will be to determine if our lives on earth have earned one of 5 crowns (2 Corinthians 5:9):


And he didn’t mention this: ” The twenty-four elders (Church in heaven) fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:10-11

Now that’s a message the Church needs to hear.


SUNDAY POST: Part 3, The Book of Remembrance

Nov 082015

We continue our look at the ‘books’ mentioned in Scripture; those that are mentioned in but are not the 66 stand-alone books of the Bible.

This Sunday, we look at The Book of Remembrance spoken of by Malachi 3:16 which records the names of those “who fear the Lord and meditate on His Name.”

We hope that the interpretations we have expressed these past few Sundays are taken in the spirit in which they have been given. Among the reasons we have shared these with you are:

  • to deepen our knowledge of God’s Holy Word
  • to learn from His past dealings with His chosen
  • to discern what He desires from us
  • to love Him and His Redeemer Son more and more as we get to know them personally

We accept that there are several interpretations other than the ones we have chosen to write about. And, perhaps you favor a different interpretation, however, let us “avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.”  2 Timothy 2:23

May the word of God be glorified!

Breitbart: “The Islamic State has declared war on the Jewish people, a man from the jihadi group declared in fluent Hebrew, in a new video released by the terrorist organization.

The threatening message, which appeared on social media Friday morning, was titled, “A message to the Jews, the first enemy of the Muslims.

“This is a message to all the Jews, who are the Muslims’ number one enemy,” the masked jihadi says, wearing combat fatigues and holding an automatic weapon. The real war has not begun and everything you have experienced so far has been child’s play — nothing compared to what will happen to you soon enough, inshallah [God willing],”

Opinion: ISIS has it exactly backwards. The descendants of Esau, called Edom (Genesis 36:1) are the final enemy of God. The Prophet Isaiah records that just prior to His second coming Jesus comes with His robe stained red:

Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength?

“It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.” Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress? “I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing.” —Isaiah 63:1–3

On His way to save Jerusalem, the Lord will take vengeance on Edom, putting an end to the hatred between Jacob (Jew) and Esau (Arab).

The apostle John, reaffirming Isaiah on the glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ, gives a stunning answer to Isaiah’s questions, Who is this? and Why are Your garments red?

“He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.

He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”

—Revelation 19:13–16 NIV
