Second Coming

Bible Questions Answered:
“Will the second coming of Christ be seen by all?...”
Al/ Calgary, Alberta Canada

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

Yes, the church of The Lord Jesus Christ, will have been secretly raptured up to heaven for some 7 years. What follows on earth is the Tribulation period. The Tribulation ends with Armageddon and the visible return of The Lord Jesus, with throngs of angelic military force, from heaven.

Joshua 5:13-15 NLT
13 When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw A Man standing in front of him with sword in hand. Joshua went up to Him and demanded, “Are you friend or foe?”
14 “Neither one,” He replied. “I am The Commander Of The Lord’s Army.” At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”
15 The Commander Of The Lord’s Army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.

Matthew 16:27 KJV
For The Son Of Man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He shall reward every man according to his works.

Matthew 24:31 KJV (Be sure to read the whole chapter.)
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of The Son Of Man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
(A sign of death and destruction.)
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of The Son Of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see The Son Of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Matthew 25:31-46 KJV (Be sure to read the whole chapter.)
31 When The Son Of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon The Throne Of His Glory:
32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as
A Shepherd divideth His sheep from the goats:
33 And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall The King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took Me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed Me: I was sick, and ye visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.
41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and His angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took Me not in: naked, and ye clothed Me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited Me not.
44 Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into Life eternal.

Matthew 26:64 KJV
Jesus saith unto him (The High Priest), Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see The Son Of Man sitting on The Right Hand Of Power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Mark 8:38 KJV
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall The Son Of Man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.

Luke 21:27 KJV
And then shall they see The Son Of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Acts 1:9-11 KJV
9 And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven.

II Thessalonians 1:7,8 KJV
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when The Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Jude 1:14,15 KJV
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, The Lord cometh with ten thousands of His saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

Revelation 1:7 KJV
Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen.

At Christ's second coming (Christ 's birth, being the first.), 7 years of Tribulation, a time filled with the rule of Satan, the Anti-Christ, and his false prophet, there will be war, death, sword, and hell, will come to a close, ending with a battle to end all battles, Armageddon. This is when The Lord will make His second coming to earth.

Jeremiah 30:7 KJV
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Want to know just why you wouldn't want to be on earth, for these 7 years, read Revelation 4-20.

A great time of testing for the Jewish people, and all, who have rejected The Promised Messiah, The Lord Jesus, God's Lamb,

Isaiah 49:15 KJV
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.


Acts 4:12 KJV
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Romans 6:23 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but The Gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Created Savior?

Bible Questions Answered:
“I've started going to church and they say that Lucifer and Jesus are spirit brothers. I'm not sure of this, is this what the bible says...”
Glen/ Oakdale, California U.S.A.

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

No, it certainly does not! Anyone who would teach that, has not come to The Light!
Angels (including Lucifer), are created beings.

Colossians 1:16,17 KJV
16 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: (Angelic realms)
17 And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

Colossians 2:9,10, NLT
9 For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.
10 So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is
The Head Over Every Ruler And Authority.
15 In this way, He disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the cross.

The Angelic Realm:

Romans 8:37-39 KJV
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 1:19-22 KJV
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,
20 Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under His feet..."

Ephesians 3:9-11 NLT
9 I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, The Creator Of All Things, had kept secret from the beginning.
10 God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display His wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
11 This was His eternal plan, which He carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 6;11,12 KJV
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Lucifer A Created Angel:

Isaiah 14:12-15 KJV
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like The Most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Ezekiel 28:13-19 KJV
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon
the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee,
O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

Because Angels Are A Created Race, They Are “Not,” God, And Not To Be Worshiped.

Colossians 2:18,19 NLT
18 Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on pious self-denial or the worship of angels, saying they have had visions about these things. Their sinful minds have made them proud,
19 and they are not connected to Christ, the head of the body. For He holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.

Revelation 19:10 KJV
And I fell at his feet to worship him (angel). And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is The Spirit Of Prophecy.

Revelation 22:8,9 KJV
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Our Eternal Savior:

Psalm 106:48 NLT
Praise The Lord, The God Of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! Let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise The Lord!

Isaiah 9:6 KJV
For unto us A Child is born, unto us A Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God,
The Everlasting Father, The Prince Of Peace.

Isaiah 63:16 NKJV
Doubtless You are our Father, Though Abraham was ignorant of us, And Israel does not acknowledge us. You, O Lord, are our Father; Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.

Micah 5:2 KJV
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto Me that is to be Ruler In Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

John 1:1-3 KJV
1 In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with God, and The Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

John 10:30 KJV
I and My Father are one.

I Timothy 1:17 KJV
Now unto The King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, The Only Wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Hebrews 1:1-14 NLT (Jesus Christ Is God’s Son)
1 Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.
2 And now in these final days, He has spoken to us through His Son. God promised everything to The Son as an inheritance, and through The Son He created the universe.
3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and He sustains everything by the mighty power of His command. When He had cleansed us from our sins, He sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of The Majestic God in heaven.
4 This shows that The Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave Him is greater than their names. The Son Is Greater Than the Angels
5 For God never said to any angel what He said to Jesus: “You are My Son. Today I have become your Father.” God also said, “I will be His Father, and He will be My Son.”
6 And when He brought His Supreme Son into the world, God said, “Let all of God’s angels worship Him.”
7 Regarding the angels, He says, “He sends His angels like the winds, His servants like flames of fire.”
8 But to The Son He says, “Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice.
9 You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”
10 He also says to The Son,“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing.
12 You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.”
13 And God never said to any of the angels, “Sit in the place of honor at My right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a foot stool under your feet.”
14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

Hebrews 7:3 KJV
Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto The Son Of God; abideth a Priest continually.

Revelation 22:13 KJV
I am Alpha And Omega, The beginning And The end, The First And The Last.


Romans 6:23 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but The Gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 10:9l, 10 KJV
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.

Bible Lesson: Prophecies And Their Fulfillment. Bible Prophecy: Messiah Betrayed.


Bible Lesson: Prophecies And Their Fulfillment.

Bible Prophecy: Messiah Betrayed.

Bible Text:

The Prophecy:

Betrayed By A Friend:

Psalm 41:9 KJV (the post-exilic age. B.C. 1042-B.C. 1023)
Yea, Mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of My bread, hath lifted up his heel against Me.

Betrayed For 30 Pieces Of Silver:

Zechariah 11:12,13 KJV (B.C. 487)
12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
13 And The Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was priced at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of The Lord.

Messiah's Betrayer, Would Have A Short Life, His Home Would Be Empty (Potters Field), He Would Be Replaced.

Psalm 69:24,25 NLT (The post-exilic age. B.C. 1048-B.C. 1023)
24 Pour out your fury on them; consume them with your burning anger.
25 Let their homes become desolate..."

Psalm 109:5-8 KJV (The post-exilic age. B.C. 1048-B.C. 1023)
5 And they have rewarded Me evil for good, and hatred for My love.
6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

Bible Fulfillment:

Betrayed By A Friend:

Mark 14:10,17,18 KJV (A.D. 33)
10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray Him unto them.
17 And in the evening He cometh with the twelve.
18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with Me shall betray Me.

Betrayed For 30 Pieces Of Silver:

/Matthew 26:14-16 KJV (A.D. 33)
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver Him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.

Matthew 27:3-5 KJV (A.D. 33)
3 Then Judas, which had betrayed Him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the Innocent Blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

Messiah's Betrayer, Would Have A Short Life, His Home Would Be Empty (Potters Field), He Would Be Replaced.

Acts 1:15-26 NLT (A.D. 33)
15 During this time, when about 120 believers were together in one place, Peter stood up and addressed them.
16 “Brothers,” he said, “the Scriptures had to be fulfilled concerning Judas, who guided those who arrested Jesus. This was predicted long ago by The Holy Spirit, speaking through King David.
17 Judas was one of us and shared in the ministry with us.”
18 (Judas had bought a field with the money he received for his treachery. Falling headfirst there, his body split open, spilling out all his intestines.
19 The news of his death spread to all the people of Jerusalem, and they gave the place the Aramaic name Akeldama, which means “Field of Blood.”)
20 Peter continued, “This was written in the book of Psalms, where it says, ‘Let his home become desolate, with no one living in it.’ It also says, ‘Let someone else take his position.’
21 “So now we must choose a replacement for Judas from among the men who were with us the entire time we were traveling with The Lord Jesus—
22 from the time He was baptized by John until the day He was taken from us. Whoever is chosen will join us as a witness of Jesus’ resurrection.”
23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias.
24 Then they all prayed, “O Lord, you know every heart. Show us which of these men you have chosen 25 as an apostle to replace Judas in this ministry, for he has deserted us and gone where he belongs.” 26 Then they cast lots, and Matthias was selected to become an apostle with the other eleven.


Mark 14;43-46 KJV (A.D. 33)
43 And immediately, while He yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
44 And he that betrayed Him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is He; take Him, and lead Him away safely.
45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to Him, and saith, Master, Master; and kissed Him.
46 And they laid their hands on Him, and took Him.

Proverbs 27:6 KJV (B.C. 700)
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

“Yet each man kills the thing he loves
By each let this be heard
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word
The coward does it with a kiss
The brave man with a sword”

Oscar Wilde, The Ballad Of Reading Gaol

Caesar could not envision the betrayal of his nephew Brutus, “Et tu, Brutus?”.
Nor we Julius Rosenberg, or Aldrich Ames. And as long as our world remains, self controlled, there will always be betrayers.

Judas' heart loved the things of this world, and where today, are his 30 pieces of silver, gone, forever gone.

And now the most important question, where does our heart lie?

I John 2:15 KJV
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.

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Will be forever mine.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

Everyone who acknowledges Me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before My Father in heaven.

Jesus, be merciful to me a sinner. I confess and forsake my sins, and ask you to forgive me, and make me a child of God, for you have said, “...whosoever shall call on the name of The Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:21 KJV

Thank you for dying for me, taking my place in judgment, that I might be pardoned. I take you as the Savior, and Lord (Master) of my life. Help me to read your word, confess you, and live for you.

Prayers - Does God Hear The Prayers Of Sinners?

Bible Questions Answered:
“What I want to know the answer to does god hear sinners when they pray?...”
Wendy/ Gloucester, England

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

Of course our The Lord hears, the prayers of those who want to claim Him as their Savior!
But if the question is...Does God hear prayers of sinful people, who have no desire of asking
The Lord to be their Savior, the answer must be... yes!

Certainly God in His Omniscience, knows all things!

Job 31:4 KJV
Doth not He see my ways, and count all my steps?

Job 34:21 KJV
For His eyes are upon the ways of man, and He seeth all His goings.

Psalm 147:5 KJV
Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.

Isaiah 46:9,10 KJV
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure:

Hebrews 4:13 KJV
Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

I John 3:20 KJV
"...God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

The questions is not, does God hear, but rather, does God, answer the prayers of the lost?
And the answer to that question is, yes, if it is something that leads to their salvation, no, if it is anything else.

God does hear and answer the prayers of His children!

Galatians 4:6,7 KJV
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth The Spirit Of His Son into your hearts, crying,
Abba, Father.
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

II Peter 1:3,4 NLT
3 By His Divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the one who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence.
4 And because of His glory and excellence, He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share His Divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

The next important question is, are you, a child of God?

John 6:37,47 KJV
37 “...him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.”
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life.

Isaiah 45:22 KJV
Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.


There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
There’s a place that is wondrously fair;
For it glows with the light of His presence,
’Tis that beautiful garden of prayer.

Oh, the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer,
Oh, the beautiful garden of prayer;
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.

There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And I go with my burden and care
Just to learn from His lips words of comfort,
In the beautiful garden of prayer. [Refrain]

There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And He bids you to come meet Him there;
Just to bow, and receive a new blessing,
In the beautiful garden of prayer. [Refrain]

Rapture - The Hour Of The

Bible Questions Answered:
“Jesus doesn't know the hour of the rapture, so how could he be god knowing anything else....”
Natsue/ Niiza, Japan (Saitama Perfecture)

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

Mark 13:31-33 KJV
31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but My words shall not pass away.
32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither The Son, but The Father.
33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Our Lord in coming to earth to be mankind's Passover Lamb, divested Himself of all His Divine glory, and riches He had with The Father, and Holy Spirit, before creation. His Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience, as a Man, He laid aside, His Divinity to become our Savior.

To strip or deprive (someone or something), especially of property or rights; dispossess.

The doctrine that Christ relinquished His divine attributes so as to experience human suffering.

II Corinthians 8:9 KJV
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.

Philippians 2:5-11 NLT
5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
6 Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.
7 Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form,
8 He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
9 Therefore, God elevated Him to the place of Highest Honor and gave Him the name above all other names,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God The Father.

By reading Mark 13:32, we may not infer that Christ's earthly knowledge was not great knowledge.

John 2:24,25 KJV
24 But Jesus did not commit Himself unto them, because He knew all men,
25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for He knew what was in man.

John 16:29,30 KJV
29 His disciples said unto Him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

John 21:17 KJV
He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me? Peter was grieved because He said unto him the third time, Lovest thou Me? And he said unto Him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed My sheep.

Acts 1:24 KJV (Matthias chosen as an Apostle.)
And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,

In The Lord's intercessory prayer, He asked The Father...

John 17:5 KJV
And now, O Father, glorify thou Me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

The resurrected Savior's glory with The Father has been fully restored, and our Great High Priest, intercedes for us, to The Father.

Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT (Christ Is Our High Priest)
14 So then, since we have A Great High Priest who has entered heaven,
Jesus The Son Of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe.
15 This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin.
16 So let us come boldly to The Throne Of Our Gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.


Nehemiah 9:17 KJV
"...but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness..."

Matthew 10:32 KJV
Everyone who acknowledges Me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before My Father in heaven.

John 1;12,13 KJV
12 But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Bible Lesson: Prophecies And Their Fulfillment: Bible Prophecy: Christ's Triumphal Entry.

Bible Lesson: Prophecies And Their Fulfillment:

Bible Prophecy: Christ's Triumphal Entry.

Bible Texts:

The Prophecy:

Zechariah 9:9 NLT
Rejoice, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your King is coming to you. He is Righteous and Victorious, yet He is Humble, riding on a donkey riding on a donkey’s colt.

Isaiah 62:11 NLT
The Lord has sent this message to every land: “Tell the people of Israel,‘Look, your Savior is coming. See, He brings His reward with Him as He comes.’”

Prophecy Fulfillment:

John 12:12-15 KJV (Jesus’ Triumphant Entry)
12 The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A large crowd of Passover visitors
13 took palm branches and went down the road to meet Him. They shouted, “Praise God!
Blessings on the one who comes in the name of The Lord!
Hail to The King Of Israel!”
14 Jesus found a young donkey and rode on it, fulfilling the prophecy that said:
15 “Don’t be afraid, people of Jerusalem. Look, your King is coming, riding on a donkey’s colt.”

Matthew 21:1-11 KJV
1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto Me.
3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set Him thereon.
8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

Hosanna: "Save, we pray!"

Psalm 118:25,26 KJV
25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of The Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of
The Lord.

9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying,
Hosanna to The Son Of David: Blessed is He that cometh in the name of The Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
10 And when He was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus The Prophet Of Nazareth Of Galilee.

Who were these people, so determined to make Jesus, their King?

Luke 4:28-30 KJV (Nazareth. Read verses 14-30)
28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
29 And rose up, and thrust Him out of the city, and led Him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast Him down headlong.
30 But He passing through the midst of them went His way,

John 10:17-20 KJV
17 Therefore doth My Father love Me, because I lay down My life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of My Father.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye Him?

Were these the very same people, who were shouting hosanna (Jesus, Save us we pray!) Yes!
If they so hated Him, how and why, did they wish Him to be their King?

As much as they hated, having their sins exposed, even more they hated Roman rule over their land, and lives.
And so selfishly they tried to make Christ (The miracle worker) their King, hoping to banish Rome and its tyrannical rule.
But though they would make Him King, Jesus refused, for He had come to be their Passover Lamb, and Savior, not king.

John 18:33-37 NLT
33 Then Pilate went back into his headquarters and called for Jesus to be brought to him. “Are you The king Of The Jews?” he asked Him.
34 Jesus replied, “Is this your own question, or did others tell you about Me?”
35 “Am I a Jew?” Pilate retorted. “Your own people and their leading priests brought you to me for trial. Why? What have you done?”
36 Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, My followers would fight to keep Me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But My Kingdom is not of this world.”
37 Pilate said, “So you are A King?” Jesus responded, “You say I am A King. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to The Truth. All who love The Truth recognize that what I say is true.”

The Jews, being denied their delivering King, rushed to Pilate, to have Him crucified.

35 “Am I a Jew?” Pilate retorted. “Your own people and their leading priests brought you to me for trial. Why? What have you done?”

Even from the cross, they taunted Him...

Matthew 27:42 KJV
He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be The King Of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him.

Their eyes being blinded, they did not understand that on Passover, God would sacrifice His own spotless (sinless) Lamb, for the sins of all the world.

I Peter 1:18,19 KJV
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with The Precious Blood Of Christ, as of A Lamb Without Blemish And Without Spot:

John 1:29 KJV
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold The Lamb Of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

I Corinthians 5:7 KJV
"...Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us."

II Corinthians 5:21 NLT
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.


Acts 2:21 KJV
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of The Lord shall be saved.”

Acts 4:12 KJV
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Fiery Serpents

Bible Questions Answered:
“God sent fiery serpents to kill his people?...”
Cally/ Oceanside, California U.S.A.

Bible Answer:

Bible Texts:

Numbers 21:4-9 NLT (The Bronze Snake)
4 Then the people of Israel set out from Mount Hor, taking the road to the Red Sea to go around the land of Edom. But the people grew impatient with the long journey,
5 and they began to speak against God and Moses. “Why have you brought us out of Egypt to die here in the wilderness?” they complained. “There is nothing to eat here and nothing to drink. And we hate this horrible manna!”
6 So The Lord sent poisonous snakes ("fiery serpents" KJV) among the people, and many were bitten and died.
7 Then the people came to Moses and cried out, “We have sinned by speaking against
The Lord and against you. Pray that The Lord will take away the snakes.” So Moses prayed for the people.
8 Then The Lord told him, “Make a replica of a poisonous snake and attach it to a pole. All who are bitten will live if they simply look at it!”
9 So Moses made a snake out of bronze (Brass speaks of judgment) and attached it to a pole. Then anyone who was bitten by a snake could look at the bronze snake and be healed!

It was God's intentions that His people march into the promised land through Kadesh-barnea, but the people rebelled against The Lord, and refused.
Now marching through the Sinai dessert, in their rebellion, they became discouraged, and began to complain.

It would do all well to understand, God is not simply a God of blessing, but of judgment as well!
Deuteronomy 28:
Blessings 1-14
Cursing 15-47

Isaiah 30:18 KJV
And therefore will The Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you, and therefore will He be exalted, that He may have mercy upon you: for The Lord is A God Of Judgment: blessed are all they that wait for Him.

Malachi 2:17 KJV
Ye have wearied The Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied Him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of The Lord, and He delighteth in them; or, Where is
The God Of judgment?

Numbers 21:6,7 NLT
6 So The Lord sent poisonous snakes ("fiery serpents" KJV) among the people, and many were bitten and died.
7 Then the people came to Moses and cried out, “We have sinned by speaking against
The Lord and against you. Pray that The Lord will take away the snakes.” So Moses prayed for the people.

Why were the people turning to Moses and The Lord? They were, because of the fiery serpents!

Psalm 119:67 KJV
Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy Word.

Jonah 2:5-7,10 KJV
5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.
7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.
10 And The Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

Is God, unkind in His judgment?

Hebrews 12:5-13 NLT
5 And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as His children? He said,
My child, don’t make light of The Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when He corrects you.
6 For The Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes each one He accepts as His child.”
7 As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as His own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father?
8 If God doesn’t discipline you as He does all of His children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really His children at all.
9 Since we respected our earthly fathers who disciplined us, shouldn’t we submit even more to the discipline of The Father of our spirits, and live forever?
10 For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in His holiness.
11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
12 So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees.
13 Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.

Is God, unkind in His judgments, no, for it is because of His great love, that He tries to stop wayward man, and turn him to the right, the way of blessing and life!

I Corinthians 10:9-13 KJV
9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is Faithful, who will not suffer (allow) you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Numbers 21:8,9 NLT
8 Then The Lord told him, “Make a replica of a poisonous snake and attach it to a pole. All who are bitten will live if they simply look at it!”
9 So Moses made a snake out of bronze (Brass speaks of judgment) and attached it to a pole. Then anyone who was bitten by a snake could look at the bronze snake and be healed!

Looking at the fiery serpent, awakened the lethargic consciences of the people, for looking at the serpent, no doubt reminded them of the poisonous biting criticism they had given Moses, and The Lord, who so lovingly had provided for them.

James 3:2-18 NLT
2 Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.
3 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth.
4 And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong.
5 In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches.
But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.
6 And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.
7 People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish,
8 but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God.
10 And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!
11 Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water?
12 Does a fig tree produce olives, or a grapevine produce figs? No, and you can’t draw fresh water from a salty spring.
True Wisdom Comes from God
13 If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up The Truth with boasting and lying.
15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.
16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.
17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.
18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.


I’ve a message from The Lord, hallelujah!
This message unto you I’ll give,
’Tis recorded in His Word, hallelujah!
It is only that you “look and live.”

“Look and live,” my brother, live,
Look to Jesus now, and live;
’Tis recorded in His word, hallelujah!
It is only that you “look and live.”

I’ve a message full of love, hallelujah!
A message, O my friend, for you,
’Tis a message from above, hallelujah!
Jesus said it, and I know ’tis true.

Life is offered unto you, hallelujah!
Eternal life thy soul shall have,
If you’ll only look to Him, hallelujah!
Look to Jesus who alone can save.

I will tell you how I came, hallelujah!
To Jesus when He made me whole—
’Twas believing on His name, hallelujah!
I trusted and He saved my soul.
