IN THE END, GOD ACCEPTS NO EXCUSES

Since God made a covenant with Abraham, He has provided laws, signs, prophets and prophecy to continually prove to man that He is Who He said He is. He is God, the creator of the universe and the creator of man and woman. Man’s problem has been to deny there is a God or denying that they needed God’s help.

Scripture tells us that in the end times there will be distressful times such as the world has never before seen. There will be scoffers and unbelievers and those that live worldly and evil lives. However, there will be believers in Christ that worship God and they will live in eternity and never physically die.

Daniel 12:10 – “Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.”

Daniel 12:1 – “There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.”

God has made laws so man would follow and realize it was God who provided prosperity or they took punishment when they failed to be obedient. Most were farmers and God told them that they could plant six years but they were not allowed to plant the land, it had to rest, the seventh year. Six years they would have good crops but if they planted the seventh year, in the same soil, the crops would not do well. In my younger days, many farmers continued to follow this law.

God did not want the Jews to borrow money. He told them that every seventh year, if they loaned money, it had to be paid back or there would be a “wipe out” day in the seventh year and all debts were to be cancelled. To this day, every seventh year there seems to be a financial crisis as Israel and America are in debt. We had economic problem in 2001, 2008 and 2015 one is due. The more we ignore God and fail to worship Him and follow His guidance for living, we pay the price. For any believer that spends more than they earn and over borrows, may expect a financial crises to occur at some point. If you feel stress you may have violated God’s laws. Daniel 9:14 – “The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster on us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.”

The land that a Jewish family was given, at God’s direction, when they arrived in the Promised Land, was a forever contract. If they sold their land, at the end of a fifty year period, called the year of Jubilee, the land had to be returned to the original owners. If you bought land, you only paid the amount you would have it until the year of jubilee. Then you had to return it to the original family at no cost. Every Jubilee year is a special year and the fall of 2015 begins one and it ends in 2016. There has been 40 Jubilee years since Christ’s death. Leviticus 25:10 – “Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan.”

God has used prophets to spread His message and most times, the people would not accept God and they rebelled. Any time they worshipped others gods, denied God or were disobedient He got their attention by punishing them. Once they realized it was God causing the problems they would repent, worship Him and realize that God loved them and they would prosper. This is why we should not believe in “man-made” global warming or climate change. That does not mean we shouldn’t do everything we can to keep the air and water pure. We must not deny that God is still in control.

God has given all kinds of signs over the years. Before the Jews left Egypt all kinds of plagues and supernatural events occurred. The parting of the Red Sea should have made the Jews aware that there was a God. When the Jews came out of Egypt to the promise land God fed and protected them.

God has used the sun, stars and moon as signs so man would realize that He was their God. In 1492 during four blood moons falling on Jewish religious holidays, the Spanish inquisition of Jews occurred. All Jews were told to convert to Catholicism or leave the country. Many of those who stayed were killed. That same year an Italian Jew, Columbus, who was mostly financially supported by Jewish investors set sail and discovered the American continent at San Salvador. Some believe many Jews from the lost tribes of Israel migrated to England. From England they came to help settle America. The Americas may have been created partly to protect Jewish citizens, from the lost tribes, as well as militarily protection for Israel. America was founded on Jewish/Christian principles and morality. At the same time, Christianity spread throughout the United States. When the Jews failed to spread God’s message to the Gentiles, He used Christianity to do so. Christians have taken the Gospel to most every country as the Bible prophesied.

In 1948, the next time that there were four blood red moons falling on Jewish religious holidays, Israel on May 14, 1948 became a homeland to the Israelites and an official country. God began calling Jews from all over the world to return to their God-given covenant land as previously prophesied.

The next time this lunar eclipse phenomenon occurred was in 1967. Israel was attacked by Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon and they repelled their enemies. The war lasted six days and Israel captured Sinai, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip and the West Bank. They were able to unify control over Jerusalem their covenant land. The Soviet Union supplied most of their enemies’ military equipment and economic assistance. President Lyndon Johnson rallied to assist Israel. During this war there were a number of supernatural events that happened and the Jews believed it was because God was on their side. It was the first time in 2000 years that they controlled Jerusalem.

Some believe this September 28, 2015 when we again have the forth blood moon and a lunar eclipses falling on a Jewish holiday, some major event will likely occur. Since Christ’s birth there have been seven times these red blood eclipses have happened and only three times in the last 500 years.

Scripture is telling the truth when it says: “None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.” I hope you are one who realizes that God continues to prove His love for man by giving him every indication that He exists. He sent His Son to die for our sins. He has provided us with a plan to become one of His children. He gives us the Holy Spirit if we accept Christ and make a commitment to die out to self and allow Him to guide us.

For many years I have been a church Elder. As Elders, we have been asked to pray for the sick. I have seen supernatural healings. I have heard people describe having died and witnessing hell and then return to live and accept Christ as their Savior. I have had people die and witness heaven and Jesus and then come back to life and tell us what it is like. For nine years, I chaired a committee that purchased 80 acres for our church. Across the street 80 acres cost $8.8 million. We bought our 80 acres for $3 million. We oversaw the building of a 150,000 sq. ft. church. We had numerous problems. We had a prayer group that would pray for each problem and supernaturally the problem became solved. Having witnessed all these miracles, God has blessed me by taking away any fear of death. You can have the same assurance.

AFTER ALL GOD HAS DONE TO PROVE THAT HE IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS, THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSES NOT TO BELIEVE!!!
