Jesus is Coming Are You Ready?

The captain of the ship looked into the dark night and saw faint lights in the distance. Immediately he told his signalman to send a message to the other ship coming their way" 'Alter your course 10 degrees south."

Promptly a return message was received: 'Alter your course 10 degrees north."

The captain was angered; his command had been ignored. So he sent a second message: 'Alter your course 10 degrees south, I am the captain!"

Soon another message was received: Alter your course 10 degrees north, I am seaman third class Jones."

Immediately the captain sent a third message, knowing the fear it would evoke: 'Alter your course 10 degrees south, I am a battleship."

Then the reply came 'Alter your course 10 degrees north, I am a lighthouse."

In the midst of our dark and foggy times, all sorts of voices are shouting orders into the night, telling us what to do, how to adjust our lives. Out of the darkness, one voice signals something quite opposite to the rest, something almost absurd. When the voice happens to be the Light of the World, and the voice is saying prepare yourselves, I am returning for a bride that is without spot or wrinkle, we must note ignore the voice of God that is saying I am coming, are you ready?

For much of America’s history, the assumption was that if you were born in America, you would affiliate with the Christian faith. A new nationwide survey by The Barna Group, however, indicates that people’s views have changed. The study discovered that half of all adults now contend that Christianity is just one of many options that Americans choose from and that a huge majority of adults pick and choose what they believe rather than adopt a church or denomination’s slate of beliefs       

Jesus is coming! Skeptics and scoffers deny that fact, but they can’t change the truth of it. Jesus is coming, and He is coming soon. This is not a childhood game! Eternity is at stake!

Hi. I found your Web Site by Google And I wish you the best you can get, the peace of God through Jesus Christ. Welcome to visit my Site. Allan Svensson, Sweden http://www.algonet.se/~allan-sv/INDEX.HTM Most Christians have not yet begun to prepare for Jesus' coming. They can speak and write about Jesus' coming, and about the signs of the time, yet they do not make any preparation to meet Jesus. How can we make a preparation? In the first hand God's people must get the knowledge of the Assembly of God. The truth of the Assembly of God has never been peached in the churches. People have a sort of love and fellowship that does not endure the light of God's word. When we mention something about churches and denominations, and compare with what the Bible teaches about the Assembly of God, then a remarkable phenomenon appears. Many Christians become afraid and nervous and point out that we shall love the assembly and not judge and criticize. But what is it that they apprehend as criticism? It is God's word! Just these Christians who have prayed for revival during many years, they are the worst opponents against revival. They do not endure the light of God's word. They do not want to hear the truth of the Assembly of God. They think that the Pentecostal churches and other free churches are Assemblies of God. They believe that the Assembly of God is constituted of church systems and many religious organizations. Can you anywhere in the Bible find any hint that the Assembly of God is an organized movement or any church system? In the time of the apostles any church did not exist, and therefore the word "church" does not occur in the Bible. Everywhere in your English Bible where you see the word "church" it is a grave translation error. Also Matt. 16:18. It ought to be "assembly". In the reality, the word "church" occurs not at all in the Bible. I have five Bible translations in Swedish, (the oldest from 1703). Nowhere in these Bibles does the word "church" (kyrka) occur. I have also a reference book where the New Testament is translated word by word from Greek to Swedish. Everywhere they translate the Greek word "ekklesia" to församling (assembly). Perhaps you want to raise the objection, there are many bible translations in English which all have the word "church". This is a very stupid argument. A translation error does not become better of repeating. A lie is a lie no matter how many time it be repeated. In Col. 1:18 (KJV) we can read: "And he (Christ) is the head of the body, the church ..." And in Eph. 5:23-24, "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ..." This is a lie! The church is not subjected unto Christ. The head of the Church is the pope, the black pope, and the devil. The Bible translators do not make a difference between God's true people and Satan's Church. From the Church's deeds we shall know the Church. Matt. 7:15-20. By their fruit we shall recognize the false priesthood. The Catholic Church has persecuted, tortured and murdered many millions of Christians. This is a well-known fact. How could a good tree bear such an evil fruit? Why did the Bible translators use the same word "church" also for God's people, the Body of Christ? Why did not they see the difference between the murderer and the victims for the murderer? The first Christians were no church. Calling the first Christians "the first church" is a grave insult against these Christians. The Church is a mass murderer. The devil is the real church father. If we use the same name "church" on the murderer as on the victims for the murderer, how then can we know what that means when someone says "church"? Right since the great falling away took place a very long time ago and the first churches came into existence, 2 Thess. 2:3, God's people have lived in slaver
