The wrath of God IS REVEALED from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold down the Truth in unrighteousness. This is a here and now thing. The "end" is very near for each of us....but God is patient with us now willing that any perish but come to repentance. Romans 1:18-19 KJV (18) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; God is love…and ALL men were born with the capability to have love. That which may be known of God is manifest IN THEM. Every man born into this world was born with the Word…the Saying …engrafted in them. (19) Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. We show that we love God by keeping His commandment to have love for one another. Deuteronomy 30:10-20 KJV (10) If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. His commandment is not hidden from any of us….neither is it far off. (11) For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. (12) It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? (13) Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? No, the Word is very near unto us….in our mouths…..and in our hearts ALREADY…so that we may do it. EVERY person on this planet already knows how to have love for another. We have already been engrafted with the Word….all we need to do is OBEY His Word…..choosing LIFE and good now. (14) But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. The life is a here and now thing. He has set before us THIS DAY life and good and death and evil. (15) See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; If we love God and walk in HIS WAYS, we shall truly LIVE in the here and now….for the life of Jesus shall be made manifest in our mortal flesh so that we may inherit this earth (“the land” that we are to go and possess). (16) In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if our hearts turn away and not hear, we shall be deceived by false prophets who will lead us down the broad way to the destruction of the flesh. We shall be drawn away by religious-sounding men and will worship their “gods” and serve them in their churches of envy and strife as they preach after money. (17) But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; We shall surely PERISH….DECAY in our mortal flesh. Our days shall not be prolonged (by having “eternal life) upon this earth. We shall pass away just like the outside world without the life of Jesus being made manifest in our mortal flesh so that we may truly LIVE. (18) I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. (19) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: We are to love the LORD our God so that we may obey His voice and that we are to cleave to Him always. He is OUR LIFE and the LENGTH OF OUR DAYS (“eternal life” in the here and now) and we shall dwell in this earth. We shall LIVE to see the whole world be covered with His glory and we shall be co-participants in bringing His knowledge and glory to others. (20) That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. The wrath is revealed in our mortal flesh. If we use our hearts and voices for evil….sowing after the flesh which wars in its envy and strife of others, then we shall reap “corruption”…that is, DECAY of the mortal flesh. What comes out of the mouth, comes out of the overflow of what is in the heart and it is that which defiles our mortal bodies. The tongue defiles the entire mortal body. Our flesh is decaying away to the grave as our sins are being remembered in our mortal flesh until the body dies and we, ourselves are saved. Our God is a consuming fire. We must understand what His wrath is so that we may sow according to the Spirit so that we may reap life “everlasting” in the here and now. The life of Jesus within us shall be made manifest in our outward flesh if we always sow to the Spirit. Galatians 6:7-10 KJV (7) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Let us not be weary in WELL DOING, for in due season we shall reap the appearing of His life in our mortal flesh which gives us “eternal life” in the here and now. We are to always keep the dying of our Lord Jesus in the body so that His life is made manifest in our mortal flesh. (9) And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Let us do good unto ALL men….and especially unto those who are of the household of faith….as they preach unto us the good Word of God in the Spirit. Let Him finds us "awake" to His righteousness and not "asleep" in our wrath, envy and strife. (10) As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Let us drink in what the Spirit is saying and activate the implanted Word that we already have within us. We already know the Word….the Saying: to have love for one another. We ALL have that capability within us…. as that light lights every man that comes into this world. Let us hear what the Spirit is saying and NOT forget to do His Word just because we do not agree with what is being said. Let us be swift to hear and slow to speak and slow to wrath for the wrath of God does not work the righteousness of God. We are to rest from our works of envy and strife and hatred and humbly DO THE WORD that is engrafted in us already. Let the hearing of the Word of Truth bring forth love out of our hearts….of which we are already capable of. James 1:18-22 KJV (18) Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. (19) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: (20) For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. (22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. The world is ALREADY PASSING AWAY. The world is actively passing away as we sit here. This is a current reality. The mortal flesh of all men is passing away as they pursue the things of this world. The world and the lust thereof IS passing away as men are decaying away to the grave as they purse the lusts of this world. All men have been under sin so that the Lord can have mercy upon us all. 1 John 2:15-18 KJV (15) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (16) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. The world and its lust ARE PASSING away NOW….a present reality. NONE of the flesh of those who are conformed to this world is being prolonged. But, if we DO THE WILL OF GOD, then we shall ABIDE with “eternal life” in this world until all of the kingdoms of this world become His kingdom. We shall LIVE an age-lasting life to see the next age as this one completely passes away leaving only those who are doing His will. We do NOT die first as this is a here and now thing. Death is an enemy and not a friend. (17) And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. But the antichrist has already come (and is present every where) to deny that Jesus IS COME in our mortal flesh as they preach for the lusts of this world. They preach for money and lead many to choose death instead of life. (18) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. If they had been of us, they would have CONTINUED with us….that is, they would have continued to LIVE in their mortal flesh. But they have all passed away. They have all died showing that they were not of God. If they had did His will, they would have continued to abide into the coming Age. Why belong to their churches where no flesh is being saved as the Scriptures are being wrested unto their own destruction? (19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. (20) But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. The heavens and the earth which are NOW are STORED with fire NOW against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. His wrath IS REVEALED from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold down the truth in unrighteousness. This judgment is very much a NOW thing. What comes out of our mouth goes into the "air"....heaven...and that is what defiles the mortal body. There is power in the air. Death and life is in the power of the tongue that speaks good or evil words into the air....and that little member destroys our mortal flesh. 2 Peter 3:7-18 KJV (7) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. BUT, the Lord is longsuffering with each of us, not willing that any should perish from off this earth, but that all should come to repentance. The end is NEAR for each of us. Our lives here are just like a momentary vapor that disappears at the rising of the sun of God’s wrath upon us. He is a consuming fire that rises up and we flee away because of our sins. We find this quote in Psalms 90:4 which describes the “life” that all men live under the wrath of God. (8) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. The day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night….for each of us. We are to repent (change the mind for His thoughts) for the end is near all men as their lives are fleeting away even now. We do not know the day we shall die or how we shall die for it is all determined by God. But one thing is certain, we shall die if we do not come to repentance. We shall suffer the loss of our mortal bodies so that our spirits are saved. We shall be saved…..but only as through the fire of God’s judgment upon us. All of our works shall be burnt up and we shall take none of those things that we have worked for with us. (10) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing that this happens to men in the current system of things, we should be people who are to behave in all holy conversation and godliness….for the wrath of God shall rise upon our lives and we are “burned” up from this earth and our spirit shall rise back to Him that gave it. We are consumed from off the earth for not doing His will. (11) Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, The current heavens are already on fire and the elements are being melted with fervent heat. Look around us. Death is all around. We see people aging, dying ….perishing from off the earth. Their sinful works do not save them as their flesh is being consumed until they pass away under the rising sun of God’s wrath. But we are looking forward to the current system of the wrath of God being revealed from heaven to be dissolved. The current things of aging and dying under the wrath of God shall be replaced with a new system…. A new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness. We can enter into His rest....NOW...as a new creation until the whole system has been recreated. (12) Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? we are looking forward to the coming Day of God….a new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness. The entire creation shall be doing His will. May your kingdom come. May your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. (13) Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Seeing we are looking for such things to come, we are to be diligent in doing His commandment to have love for another. Let Him find us in peace, without spot and blameless. Let us hear His voice and not respond in our wrath and unbelief of what the Spirit is saying. (14) Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. The longsuffering of our Lord is salvation. Even though we may have persecuted the church and have lead many astray by preaching for money, His grace is abundant. Even though we may be the chiefest of sinners, His abundant grace is shown to us. (15) And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; (16) As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. (17) Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. We are to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and not be led astray by those who are wresting the Scriptures to their OWN DESTRUCTION of the flesh. They preach for money and lead many astray with their covetous practices….men’s commandments and doctrines. (18) But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. Why desire the day of the LORD? To what end is it for those who do not understand that it comes to those who are not doing His will? Amos 5:18-20 KJV (18) Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. (19) As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. (20) Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? The current system of the heavens being on fire for our judgment and the works of the earth are burning up shall pass away. This system shall be dissolved….pass away …and we are to look forward to this coming day of God when He shall tabernacle with ALL men. We shall LIVE to see this….for we shall have “eternal life”….an age-lasting life. This age will pass away and a new one begins. Revelation 21:1-5 KJV (1) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (2) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (3) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. The heavens that are currently on fire for our judgment shall be dissolved. The current system of things ….death, sorrow, crying, and pain….shall be dissolved. They shall pass away. (4) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (5) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. God turns man to destruction and says “RETURN, you children of men”. We are all under sin so that He may have mercy upon us. Psalms 90:1-17 KJV (1) A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. (2) Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. (3) Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men. (4) For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. In the morning of our lives, we are like the grass which grows up. We flourish and grow up but in the “evening” our mortal flesh is cut down and it withers away. All flesh is as grass which withers under the heat of the sun. (5) Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up. (6) In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth. This is because we are under the sun of God’s wrath as it rises upon our mortal flesh because of our sins. We live only to have our mortal flesh decay away to the grave as we are cut down. (7) For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled. It is because of our SINS that our iniquities are remembered in our mortal flesh until we are consumed from off the earth. The wages of sin is death. If sow after the flesh, then we shall reap decay of the mortal flesh. (8) Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance. All of our days are passed away in His wrath. The wrath of God IS REVEALED from heaven upon all of the unrighteousness of men. We are abiding under His wrath. (9) For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. Maybe we shall live to be 70 or by reason of strength we live to 80. But in those later days we shall not find pleasure in them for they will be a struggle because of our failing health. The days will come for each of us when our bodies shall be decayed to the point of no longer being happy. There will be sorrow and pain in the twilight of our lives and then we “fly away”. (10) The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. We consider these things “normal life”….aging and decaying away to the grave. But we must see it for what it is: the wrath of God upon us for our sins. He is patient with us not willing that any perish but come to change our minds about the way we are living. (11) Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. (12) So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. (13) Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants. We have been all concluded under sin so that He may have mercy upon us so that we may rejoice and be glad ALL of our days. He turns us all over to destruction so that we might return to Him and He shows us mercy. The life of Jesus is to be made manifest in our mortal flesh giving us “eternal life”. The beauty of the LORD our God shall be upon us. We shall abide in the here and now…displaying His glory to this dark world as we shall have His life being made manifest. (14) O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. (15) Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil. (16) Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children. (17) And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. We are looking forward to a new heavens and a new earth…..where the current system of death, sorrow and pain shall not exist. The literal heaven and earth shall still exist….but it is the hearts and speaking of men that shall be the home of righteousness. Those former things of sorrow, pain and death shall pass away….but right now we are still living in the day that the heavens are stored with fire unto the destruction of ungodly men. Isaiah 65:17-24 KJV (17) For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. (18) But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. (19) And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. (20) There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. (21) And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. There shall no longer be false prophets to come lead us away to destruction. We shall no longer labor in vain nor bring forth for trouble. Our days shall be like that of a tree and we shall LONG enjoy the work of our hands. (22) They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. (23) They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. (24) And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
