The one thing I think all of us Christians lack (and that includes me) is a more prominent display of authentic humility (to God) in our lives. No one living today is Jesus Christ even though there are at least five people alive right now who claim to be Him. No one has His understanding. No one has His wisdom. No one has His sinless nature. We must endeavor to adopt a true spirit of humility (that only God can provide) so that disagreements over doctrine do not become points of contention and knock-down, drag-outs.
Jesus Christ IS God. He provided Himself as a substitutionary atonement for us. In doing so, He provided salvation and when we receive His salvation, He indwells us via the Holy Spirit and we become “partakers of the divine” as Peter tells us in 2 Peter 1:4. We ourselves are not gods, but through His divine power, we can overcome sin, unrighteousness, and ungodliness.
We know all too well that God has rained fire (and sometimes brimstone) down from heaven. In fact, a clay tablet that was literally unreadable for over 150 years after its discovery became readable after scientists discovered the key to understanding it. It points to a date “shortly before dawn on June 29 in the year 3123 B.C.”
I fully believe that this coming seven-year period is a time when God will pour out His wrath onto this world. I explained this in Part 1. As another proof of this, please note that Revelation 5 depicts a scene in heaven where a seven-sealed scroll is introduced. This scroll appears to be something special and at first, it looks like no one is found worthy to open it. John the apostle, who witnesses this scene, breaks down into tears because all seemed hopeless.
Today’s average Christian is far from familiar with God’s Word. Would it be a huge understatement to say that many to most churchgoers today do not read His Word regularly? Would it be incorrect to say that most people who attend church today do not pray on a regular basis, or seek God and His wisdom through His Word?
Project Blue Beam is said to be a system whereby the use of holograms are used to make things appear to be alive or simply appear to exist. An example of this would be with the recent “resurrection” of Tupac Shakur during a concert, where he sang, walked the stage and essentially did everything a living person would do, except for the fact that it was all an illusion.
The only way to determine truth is to compare it to God’s holy Word. That’s it. We cannot go by the way a person makes us feel. Even Paul said “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!” (Galatians 1:8) This is the same Paul who applauded the Bereans when they heard what he said/taught and immediately went back to the Scriptures to determine if Paul was simply full of hot air or if he was speaking truth (cf. Acts 17.
