What is frustrating is that these reasons have been more than adequately responded to by others. Because the word “Rapture” is not used in the Bible does not mean it is not a true doctrine. You won’t find the word “Trinity” either, but does that mean that God is not three in one?
But when I say that the gay and lesbian community want to destroy marriage, I’m saying that they want to eradicate the term and the institution of traditional marriage. Because of it, there will likely come a day when people who marry and remain married happily until the death of one of the spouses, will be ridiculed by the left. That is tragic, but it will very likely become reality.
Steven Fletcher uses a great deal of math, but while I told him his math is way off, he doesn’t hear anything because as he said to me, “Fred, I have to go… its all documented… God opened the book of daniel, unsealed the calendar, to me… its not about me, I am just sharing what the lord has shown, confirmed by the word and signs in the heavens.”
I’m studying all of these things because I am a visual learner. I have an intricate model of the Temple and Tabernacle that I plan on putting together hopefully soon. That process will enable me to cement the concepts of the Temple in my mind. As a visual learner, I know that I have to “see” it for it to stick. Going through the various processes with my hands and with my eyes, will allow me to make it stick.
If someone starts telling you that in order to be a better Christian, you must begin adding Mosaic Laws, Feasts, and Festivals to your life or you must learn Hebrew or immerse yourself in Jewish culture, they are 100% wrong! However, if you decide to learn Hebrew, more about the Menorah, the Tabernacle, the Jewish Feasts, or something else related to Judaism because you are interested and you want to know these things because Jesus Himself was immersed in them, there is nothing wrong with that!
Because Jesus does not have to deal with anything sinful in His own life, He is free to serve us, those who follow Him. We are told in Hebrews 4:16, that we are to “…draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
As authors Klein and Spears point out, Christians today don’t have an accurate understanding of that passage. We somehow think that because the veil has been torn from the top to the bottom, we can simply run into the Holy of Holies without a care in the world. Isn’t that what the word “boldly” means? No.
Lately, I have been frustrated with the way the English translations of the Bible from the Greek often mask original meanings, making them very difficult at times to comprehend. The truth appears to be that most of what we call the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew, then translated to Greek, then translated to English. I do realize there is some disagreement there, but for me, I am becoming satisfied that it is because of this process, at least some of the teachings of Jesus and others have become unduly clouded.
But the more I study, the more I have come to the conclusion that society is being directed to a one-world system as foretold in Scripture. In my next book – Rome Rising – I detail the process, based on Scripture and using examples from society to prove how accurate the Bible is with respect to all things, especially in terms of prophecy. We need to remember that though we live in 2014 and look back at many of the events in Scripture, those events were foretold long before they actually occurred and in some respects, many of the events that were foretold by Daniel, Ezekiel, John (Revelation) or someone else have not yet occurred. We are still waiting for them to take place.
While I realize that Rick Warren created what is called the PEACE Coalition. His is a socialist-based gospel, where people are taught to do good works and to downplay the presentation of the gospel. Does Warren fit nicely with the goals and aspirations of the CFR? It certainly seems to be the case.
The movie is filled with platitudes primarily, statements designed to make you believe something about yourself, others, and the world. To find out what the three magic words are, the viewer needs to wait until the end of the movie, but you may be way ahead of me by now anyway. For those who aren’t, before I divulge that little secret, let me make some observations about the film and the concept itself.
