1 Peter 1:3-12
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 

In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls.

10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look.

A couple months ago, a 12 part series on the Book of Ecclesiastes was posted here, along with the video teaching from my PLUMBLINE TV show to go along with it. That series on Ecclesiastes kicked off the topic on the general "Meaning of Life", according to how God sees it. God used a deeply flawed man to get His point across, while at the same time, giving us a Living Example of what we should not become - like Solomon.

First and Second Peter are the bookends to Ecclesiastes. While the latter explained the Meaning of Life, Peter showed us exactly HOW we are to walk out that Life in expectation for the "Dawn of Glory" - that is, the coming Kingdom of God! How did a rude, crude, three-time denying, jump-out-the-boat and walk on water only-to-sink kind of guy end up with this lofty position of writing for ALL people of ALL ages? Well, because GOD HIMSELF through Jesus Christ His Son - gave Peter the Keys to the Kingdom!

The Keys to the Kingdom are not to let people into Heaven! Only Jesus Christ can do that. The Keys to the Kingdom are to show us HOW we are to live DAILY as saved and rejuvenated people, so we can come into the Fullness of what Christ expects of us. Remember this - Peter means "rock" but only in the pebble size sense of the word. Jesus Christ IS the Rock. Peter is a servant. Jesus is the Master.

The Apostle Peter was personally selected by the LORD Jesus Himself to be the Head of the Church - His Church. Peter is NOT the first pope and the word pope is nowhere near the canon of Scripture. The rough and tumble Galilean Fisherman sure had his ups and downs as a follower of Christ, yet we see in Paul's writings that he ministered with his wife and ended up in Rome where he was crucified upside down between the age of 65-70 years old.  

These next twelve teachings are not done by Chapter but by sections and are fully fleshed out for the most part. Pray, read and be blessed, in Jesus' Name, amen.

See You at The Pole (SYATP) is a student led prayer movement on the fourth Wednesday every September, where Christian students gather around the US Flag pole of their local schools to pray, before the start of the day's classes. While many atheists groups and politicians have tried to stop SYATP in the past, this is a constitutionally protected activity under the First Amendment.
SYATP began in 1990, as a response to the loss of Religious Freedom and hostility to Christians in the public school, and has spread worldwide to all of western Europe, and some parts of Canada, Africa and the South eastern continents. Millions of students, and in some cases, teachers (in their own personal private capacities) are involved. 

Students have several things to worry about and be concerned in prayer and we, as adults should encourage them to pray about all of these weighty matters. Because of the mess America and the world leaders have made of this world, the future for most young people has almost been destroyed. This dying world is under the influence and rule of Satan, while God's remnant still operates freely for the most part. The answer to today's problems is still the Hand of The Lord guiding each and every person.

So the prayer list should begin in earnest with the following and in order:
- Praise and Thanksgiving for Life, and Liberty
- Thanksgiving, even in the face of persecution by national leaders and even fellow so-called "Christians" and other religions, that Jesus Christ is STILL THE CREATOR AND THE MESSIAH AND SAVIOR OF THE WORLD!
- Thanksgiving that He was born as a man, lived a sinless life, ministered and gave us life's rules for three years, was persecuted Himself, nailed to a Cross, died for our sins, rose from the dead and is seated on the Right Hand of God where He reigns forever and prayers for His Elect, as Prophet, Priest and King.
- Pray for those persecuted Christians murdered by islam in Pakistan, Kenya, Syria and Nigeria this week while the western church stays silent.
- Pray for their school year and for Godly teachers, who even if they are not saved, will not openly rebel against God and try to promote ungodly agendas.
- Pray for their own spirit protection during the school day and for their fellow students' well-being, good health, joy and their own friends' salvation.
- Pray for their parents and their homes to be places where Christ is Lord and the ruler of that home.
- Pray for their future and their plans as they study and think about careers.
- Pray for their own well-being, safety, peace and strength with the heavy loads of homework put upon them each day.
- Pray for their Personal Purity in an evil and perverse generation, and to be able to stand against the culture, for such a time as this.

There will be cities, towns and other liberal enclaves, where this legal and constitutional activity will be under attack. Students will be mistakenly told that have no right or legal authority to do this. They do. If there are any questions about See You at the Pole or any school or town official who tells a student they cannot meet at the flagpole on Wednesday morning, a list of the Student's Rights and FREE legal advice was made available by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) website. Click here for more information, but here are the major points:

The ACLJ supports the right of students (and in many instances, parents and teachers) to gather on public school campuses to exercise their constitutionally protected right to free speech and religion through prayer, particularly at See You at the Pole events.  See You at the Pole is a student-initiated and led prayer movement in which students from elementary schools to colleges gather around their school flagpole to pray on the fourth Wednesday of September. The Supreme Court has consistently upheld the students’ right to express themselves on public school campuses, even within group contexts similar to See You at the Pole, stating that “[n]either students [n]or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District, 393 U.S. 503, 506 (1969).


Student prayer, including prayer at See You at the Pole events, is a protected form of speech that school officials may not ban. In Board of Education v. Mergens, the Supreme Court interpreted the Equal Access Act and held that Bible clubs and prayer groups have the right to meet on public secondary school campuses that receive federal funding during non-instructional time to the same extent that any other non-curricular clubs are permitted to meet on campus. 496 U.S. 226, 247 (1990). Thus, if such federally funded schools permit non-curricular clubs such as Interact, Zonta, 4-H, Chess Club, and other service-type clubs to meet and hold events on campus, those schools must also permit See You at the Pole events to the same extent.

So long as a student’s conduct does not “materially or substantially interfere with school discipline,” Tinker, 393 U.S. at 504 (quoting Burnside v. Byars, 363 F.2d 744, 749 (5th Cir. 1966)), students may gather together on campus for prayer even if no Bible Club has been officially recognized. Public school students may also bring Bibles, wear Christian t-shirts, and even share their faith, including passing out pamphlets and tracts about Christ to peers on campus. See Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105, 108-09 (1942) (“[D]istribution of religious tracts is an age-old form of missionary evangelism . . . . This form of religious activity occupies the same high estate under the First Amendment as do worship in the churches and preaching from the pulpits.”). Moreover, the U.S. Department of Education requires every public school that receives federal funding to certify “that it has no policy that prevents, or otherwise denies participation in constitutionally protected prayer in public schools,” including “‘see you at the pole’ gatherings before school.” U.S. Dept. of Educ., Guidance on Constitutionally Protected Prayer in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools 68 F.R. 9646 (Feb. 28, 2003) (hereinafter “Guidance”), available at, (last visited Mar. 11, 2011).

School officials, however, may impose reasonable, non-discriminatory regulations that govern the time, place, and manner of student activities. See, e.g., Chandler v. Siegelman, 230 F.3d 1313, 1317 (11th Cir. 2000) (Government “may neither prohibit genuinely student-initiated religious speech, nor apply restrictions on the time, place, and manner of that speech which exceed those placed on students’ secular speech.”). Such regulations cannot target the religious content of the student activity, must be narrowly tailored to serve a significant government interest, and are required leave open other alternative forms of communication.

Chosen Generation Gospel Band (in part)
One of the major goals I have in bringing these free outdoor Christian concerts to various
Tamara Norville
parts of the city and the county in coming months and years is to bring the joyful news of the Kingdom to areas given up by the church, to worldly systems.  The first one, though too long by a few hours, happened in Auburn, Illinois in October 2011. JesusFest 2 was at the brand new SouthWinds Park (just on the outskirts of town) in October 2012 and the recently concluded JesusFest 3 brought the powerful message of Jesus to the South East Laketown area of Springfield.

IDENTITY from Bloomington, Il.
Future spots being explored are Petersburg, Rochester, Chatham and other parts of this big city of Springfield. The rubber meets the road...on the road. We can expound and pontificate from a pulpit on Sunday morning, feel good about ourselves and there is nothing wrong with any of this. However the Great Commission from the Great Christ was to "GO AND MAKE", not sit and take.

Evangelism and outreach are not just two words which begin with vowels, but the burden of every soul (or should be) who has been called out of the pit by the Great Rescuer - Jesus, when He saved us. This event went so well, that even the regional management of Hardee's was impressed by the size and tone of this outreach, under the most perfect sky of the month!
Evangelist Christian Rapper, MB
 So many hearts were touched, we were invited to do an event there monthly. If I had the resources and could, I would do that, just to reach that part of the city which has the biggest strip-club between Chicago and St. Louis - Deja Vu! God alone knows how many people's lives - from marriages to the young women who peddle their flesh there - have been completely destroyed by this so-called "gentleman's club". No real gentleman will be caught dead in a place like that - EVER!

Rachel Ray,
American Cancer Society
Right off the bat, a wonderful saint in the pro-life community and the wife of one of my dearest brothers and a man I fellowship with daily went over to this strip club to pray on the streets surrounding this "establishment". Here is a partial testimony of what happened there, first hand - "I went to pray towards Deja Vu & when we parked in a place to purchase beer across the street a young woman walk out with a beer she had purchased...we witnessed to her & prayed for her about 30 minutes & it was soooo BEAUTIFUL!!!  The young woman walking to her vehicle that seemed so lost & sad left with a HUGE smile on her face & genuine "JOY"!! I love serving God & I'll pretty much go anywhere @ any time...thank you again!”

Monica Hay,
 New Life Church, Auburn
A young man who had trouble with drugs, came up to our ministry table ready to surrender his life to Christ! Christian Rapper MB (Zach Ayappa), and my buddy Bob Kennedy led him to Christ right next to Stevenson Drive! A young lady was so convicted, I heard that she gave up her will to do more drugs right in front of some church people who prayed for her. There were more people affected by the message and the music and the method of loving others to Christ which will have a huge impact for months to come.

One amazing treasure was the Broken Chains Church (Corner of Monroe & Lewis Streets) of Springfield whose brand new Drama Team brought the Gospel of the Kingdom to life so much that it captivated hearts and minds big time. Those are the illustrations that stick with both the redeemed and maybe, soon-to-be redeemed, rather than 45 minute message on a Sunday morning! I wish to thank Pastor Brian Williams for bringing his team out and know we will have a long association with them as we reach this generation with the Truth, as the days of the End draw closer!
A section of our Exhibit Row,before J-FEST began
Thank you to Rachel Ray, the happy warrior from the American Cancer Society, for bringing hope and resources for breast cancer prevention and treatment to the event, and for returning to J-Fest this year.
Thank you also to the following for your heart and your ministry: Don Hunt and the Chosen Generation Gospel Band. Visit the Holy Ground Coffee House on Allen Street for more fine gospel music of all genres twice per month.
Thank you to a delightful couple of beautiful kids from Illinois College- Allan Miggins and Tamara Norville for their joy and excitement.
Thank you to Monica Hay from New Life Church.
Allan Miggins  & Tamara Norville
 from Illinois College, Jacksonville, Illinois
Thank you to IDENTITY who drove all the way from Bloomington, Illinois to bless us with their virtue and fun.
Thank you to the wonderful group ASHLAND from Greenville, Illinois.
Thank you to DJ Mayday and evangelist/Christian hip-hop artist Zach Ayappa (THE MB) for being there and such good sports!
Thank you to Rock and Roll Hardees management for allowing us to use the facilities and to soundman Oakland Morris (Oakie) for doing our sound, event after event.
Thank you to the best production team in the business – brothers Brian Powell and Bob Kennedy and to all who helped us get the word out citywide!

Business Men in Christ will continue to promote and produce these events as God provides and calls us to reach our city with the Good News of Christ, until He comes! Maranatha!

Websters defines the word "INFALLIBLE" as follows:
-  incapable of error 
-  not liable to mislead, deceive, or disappoint 
-  incapable of error in defining doctrines touching faith or morals.

Does this sound like any man ever born or still alive, in the past 5774 years of Creation?  Yes and No!
Yes - the only Man ever born who fits this description is the Sinless Son of God -YaHWeH (Jesus the Messiah).
No - there is no mortal man since Adam who is infallible, incapable of sin. Since the lies of Satan to Eve in Genesis 3, there has been misinterpretation of God's Word and instructions....even when people have the Word right in front of their faces in the form of the Bible!

Recently, there has been an increasing controversy over the current Pope - Pope Francis's statements which were emblazoned across the worldwide media. The esteemed former bishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina said (according to media reports) "all atheists can go to heaven".....and other such headlines. 

Here is what he really said and it is directly from his own letter, not a sensational media report. Pope Francis responded to an Italian newspaper questions in a long letter (see here) and said this about atheists "First of all, you ask if the God of the Christians forgives those who do not believe and do not seek faith.  Given that  -  and this is fundamental  -  God's mercy has no limits if he who asks for mercy does so in contrition and with a sincere heart, the issue for those who do not believe in God is in obeying their own conscience.  In fact, listening and obeying it, means deciding about what is perceived to be good or to be evil.  The goodness or the wickedness of our behavior depends on this decision...." 

The main thing to note here is that he did not really say "all atheists" go to Heaven. He just did not preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ...thereby, misleading countless thousands. In his idea of outreach to the lost, he not only gave wrong advice (about "perceiving to be good") but incorrect Soteriology (The Doctrine of True Salvation). Holy Scriptures note "there is none good - not even one. All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God" (Romans 3:23). God also said in Isaiah 64:6 ESV "We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

The point is we can and WILL never "find what is good" and do it and expect to get to Heaven on our own. We could NOT and NEVER WILL do. This is the reason God had to pour Himself out from the Throne of Heaven to bring the Word DIRECTLY from The Father on how to restore our fallen relationship with Him (Philippians 2). This is the reason He gave Himself to be persecuted and to die on the Cross that ALL men, from eternity past to present, could be saved. That substitutionary atonement for ALL sin accomplished the work God the Father had sent Christ to do. Jesus not only did that well, but His obedience is noted as the example for us here in Hebrews 5:7.

Having a good conscience will never save can deceive a person into thinking that all is well with your soul, but a convicted conscience is evidence that God has pierced a person's consciousness with the fact of his/her sin. This is then followed by the knowledge that such a person is in dire need of Repentance to make it right before God. Again, there is nothing good about any of this, from our human perspective.  This is evidence we sin constantly against Holy Father in Heaven.

The redeemed person, i.e., one who is really and truly saved, has been given the gift of Repentance....and it IS a gift. Anyone who rejects the word "Repentance" as is not of God, period. Among the first words by Jesus of the first Gospel ever written - Mark....we have what Jesus said in Chapter 1, verse 15 "Repent, believe the Gospel and be saved"! There is no other way to Salvation or Heaven. You can't work your way into heaven. You can't donate your way into heaven. You can't baptize your way into heaven....and NO amount of going to church or mass will get you there either. Only the true forgiveness of Sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ ALONE, as LORD and Savior, will get you there.

Jesus said "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE, no one can comes to the Father but through Me." (John 14:6) These are the declarations from Heaven from the Incomparable, Inerrant and Infallible Son of God. There is no man ever born who can claim to speak for God, who has never made a false or incorrect statement. Anyone or any group claiming that is guilty of sin, of assuming unto himself, the mantle of God. All men are sinners saved by Grace - if and when we are rescued from the pit of eternal damnation.

The Infallibility of Jesus Christ, the Aleph Tav, the Alpha and Omega, will be evident on Judgment Day and in the Millennial Kingdom when He will be ruling the Nations here on earth for 1000 years. He will be physically sitting on the Throne in Jerusalem in the not to distant future. The Words He spoke, as recorded via the inspired Word of God, in 66 books of the Bible, are Spirit, Truth and Life. If you doubt one jot, dot or tittle, you have doubted the Entire Scriptures and the Truth is not in you. There is no inconsistency in the Gospels or the ancient text. Secular archaeologists are constantly proving the accuracy of Biblical events, with more to come. The discovery of tissue in dinosaur bones in Montana proves the young age of the earth and on and on.

The point is, be careful of anyone who suddenly pronounces who can and cannot get into heaven. Seek ye for your own self the Word of Truth. That Truth can only be found in the Words of the Christ, the Word Who became Flesh and the Word from Christ - the Bible....Seek the counsel of an older and wiser Christian person. Seek direction on how to read the Scriptures for yourself, from the Spirit of God Who dwells in ALL true believers. He will show you the way of all infallible Truth, not a fellow mortal as ourselves.
But seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you...Matthew 6:33 (Aramaic Bible)

As we watch our brothers and sisters persecuted not just in the Syrian civil war, but the 1,000,000 Chaldean Christians run out of their 2000 year old homes when the US military handed the Iraq (Babylon) government over to the local Shiite government. 
As we watch our Coptic brothers lose their lives and their churches in Egypt. 
As we watch Christian news broadcasts about Nigerian islamic terrorists raiding Christian boarding schools and killing teachers and children....and on and on...what are we to do? How are western Christians to respond and react to these atrocities against the Ekklesia (Body of Christ)?

Most folks in our churches do not know it is even happening because, well, frankly, most north American church leadership (Canada and the USA) do not really care about our brethren being persecuted in foreign lands. Some may mention something about it in a passing prayer, but that's it. It took a US congressman - Frank Wolfe (R Virginia) to embarrass two nationally known preachers into responding to the plight of the persecuted...which they did almost like a cheap politician would.

So it is really up to the individual Christian to care about this because God will hold us each accountable....and the church leadership of the West will be held to a much higher standard than we are going to be held to. We can do much more - each one of us - than even our pastors and teachers for the martyrs and the persecuted in Arabia, Africa and Asia....and one day, in America. How? We can pray! Our spirit-led prayers for the persecuted on a regular basis, mean more than you and I know! Any chance we get to donate toward bibles, blankets or bread for them, take it - and go full bore into Service to our brethren.

Our clarion call could be what 1 Peter 4:12-17 tells us to do here....then watch Part 2 of the Teaching on The Persecuted Church and how we can be better servants of Christ, in the fullest sense of the word.
(See the PLUMBLINE TV PROGRAM on Part 2 of PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS below as we explore persecution from Psalm 69 with a unique look at this expository. We look at the problem of persecution and the possible solutions from the Scriptures here).

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:10-12, ESV)

When the terrorists in Syria recently charged the ancient Christian village of Maaloula in the Syrian mountainside where the minority Christians lived for almost 2000 years, do you think they felt blessed? According to eyewitnesses, the moslem terrorists told villagers "‘Either you convert to Islam or you will be beheaded,". The village of Maaloula is one of the last on this earth which still spoke the ancient language of Aramaic. Aramaic was the language spoken by Jesus Himself and can only be found in Syria, in these last days.

What has been happening during the violent Syrian civil war has already been repeated in Iraq, with one million Chaldean Christians being persecuted, killed and displaced and in Iran and other middle eastern countries. Pakistan and India are catching up with their cousins in the middle east and doing the same to God's people. These are just some of the latest examples of what has been happening to followers of Jesus Christ since before He was even crucified in 33 AD in Jerusalem. Jesus warned of this and this warning has been fulfilled time after time after time for almost 2000 years now. 

Persecution is occurring in not just these Arab countries, but in almost every corner of this earth. In Part 2 of this, some pointers on how to survive persecution anywhere in this world where this blog is read, will be provided, from the Word of God itself.  What Christians should find comfort in, is that this is as bad as it is going to get for true believers. Eternity in Glory is nothing compared to those what happens in this old earth. In countries like China, or the Philippines or India etc, where there are not the comforts of life, their hope and faith are truly remarkable things to behold. We can bless them by praying for them daily because believe it or not, some in the Chinese persecuted church are actually praying for us as well! One day, we will all rejoice before the Throne with the One Who will welcome all His children with "well done, good and faithful servants".

In the Old Testament, God told us - parents and those who are older - to teach the younger ones (our children) His Ways (Deuteronomy 6: 6-9). The only problem is - most do not do that, well, because it is hard! Even churches, where our kids are supposed to be safe and trained to be future saints and solid citizens of both earth, and then heaven, are falling down on the job!

We have failed our children - both as adults and as an Ekklesia (the Body of Christ). More and more young people are walking away from not just the church, but Jesus Christ - never to return. They may not have learned that garbage from us, but what we allowed in our churches and then in our educational system has created more lost people than we can even dream of evangelizing in our lifetime.

We began losing the vast majority of our young people from age 8 on! Yes! Incredible as this sounds, this is what the research from Answers in Genesis and others. Why did we start losing them so early in their church life? Well, we told them Bible stories which all ended well, without raising them up as disciples of Christ. We lost them by not equipping them to face the world, sin and Satan. We had them for 2 or hours a week in church, while the world indoctrinated them into its ungodly systems, the rest of the week!

This program examines current scary and sobering research from Barna Research and how we go there...and more than that, what are the solutions:

HAPPY NEW YEAR - 5777 (Starts Oct 2-4, 2016)
Most Christians are not aware of the significance of Rosh Hashanah - the Jewish New Year. A lot of it is due to the lack of, or improper teaching about the role of Israel in Prophesy and in some extreme cases - just plain error. There is an ungodly teaching out there called "Replacement Theology" which teaches that modern day Christians have replaced not just the Biblical Israel but present and future Israel. It will serve no purpose to put out the shocking list of churches here, but suffice it to say that almost 100 millions Americans in total belong to these churches! To those of us, who are students and lovers of the Holy Land, we honor these major Jewish Feast Days with our Messianic Jewish brethren! Why? Well, we because in the Millennial Kingdom,  guess where the King  - Jesus Christ -will be sitting on His Throne - Jerusalem.

In the Millennial Kingdom, the Sacrificial system will return (not to make blood atonement, but as a memorial). 

In the Millennial Kingdom, the Feast of Tabernacles (or Sukkot) which is coming up soon in later September, will be so huge and festive and under direct watch of Christ that Scripture warns that those nations that refuse to come up to Jerusalem annually to celebrate it with the rest of us, will have their rain cut off! Read it here.

Anyone who doubts any of this, has an issue with God and His Word, because, well..."thus sayeth the Lord"! Therefore as the Jewish New Year is now in full swing, let us wish our dear brethren a Happy New year...from those of us who are under the worldwide Gregorian Calendar - let us celebrate this day! 

This is the blessing given while holding a cup of wine before the evening meal: “Praised are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the Universe who has chosen and distinguished us by sanctifying our lives with commandments. Lovingly have you given us this Day of Remembrance, a day for recalling the shofar sound, a day for holy assembly and for recalling the Exodus from Egypt. Thus have you chosen us, sanctifying us among all people. Your faithful word endures forever. Praise are You, Lord, Ruler of all the earth, who sanctifies, the people Israel and the Day of Remembrance.”

There are some things we can learn from Rosh Hashanah. These are things which can make the understanding of God's Covenant. It is a time of new beginnnings. Just as Christian make resolutions on January 1, Rosh Hashanah give the Christian a time to reflect on the Gift of Repentance! Yes, repentance (or Teshuvah). This is the gift which calls us to answer the Call of God and approach Him with clean hearts and minds!

Why is Teshuvah important? Well, it ties right into the Lamb's Book of Life! Jesus said in Mark 1:15 "Repent, believe the Gospel and be saved"! In fact, one of the main greetings of Rosh Hashanah is "L'Shanah Tovah Tikatevu" which means "may you be inscribed and sealed for a good year (in THE BOOK OF LIFE)! Now, do any of us have a problem with this?!  There is more we can go on about as to why we celebrate this meaningful time of year each early Fall, but the main one is this - we celebrate the new beginning - the Creation and the Creator.

The Gregorian Calendar which we live under, begins our new year every January 1. The Jews mark this as the beginning of Creation. Psalm 47:2 says "The LORD is KING of over ALL the earth". It is amazing to follow the tie in with this and the coming Millennial Kingdom of the Maschiach - Yehoshua (King Jesus)! Isaiah 27:13 says "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem." This is Mt Zion, where the Feet of the Messiah will land on the Second Coming, and the entire geography of Israel and its surroundings will be permanently changed at that time!

So let us celebrate and honor our Jewish brothers as we are now in Year 5774 from Creation! If your Jewish friends offer you apples and honey or even pomegranate based delicacies, that's the ticket right there. The traditional Apples and Honey of Rosh Hashanah simply signifies the expected sweetness of the coming year (the honey) and the Shekinah Glory of God (apple slices). 
Shanah Tovah Umesukah! (A happy and sweet new year)!

(All Scriptures are King James Version)

The signature of Jesus is not just all over Creation but in the Bible from beginning to End. Right off in the Book of Genesis 1:1, we have His Signature!!! Here is His actual Signature in the Original Hebrew which Moses wrote:
This is the Hebrew for "In the Beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth"
The Hebrew in RED: אֵ֥ת  is not translated because it could not be. It is only two letters - Aleph and Tav - or as we say in English - THE BEGINNING AND THE END!!! (In the New Testament Book of Revelation 22:13, He says "I am the Alpha and the Omega" - Same translation! In the Greek it is "Ἄλφα καὶ τὸ Ὦ". These facts are honey to those of us who love every jot and tittle of God's Word - ALL of it!!! Woohoo!!
They will look on Me whom they have pierced Zech 12:10
There are more statements from the Creator about Himself in the Scriptures! In this second and final part of the Superiority of Christ, we examine some of the I AM statements as well as some of the Gates of Jerusalem! Learn not just about those statements but the importance of the GATES of Jerusalem to the Believer TODAY: 
"I am the bread of life"  (John 6:35)
"I am the light of the world" (John 8:12)
"I am the door of the sheep"(John 10:7)

The profane and those bound for perdition use His Name in Blasphemy.
The pagan and the politician use His Words to create ungodly policy.
The professing and the prosperity pretender fool themselves and millions others into sure eternal separation....and all of this in His Name.
The professors and media promote Him only as some moral teacher.

The real story of Jesus is not just the one which the western world pays attention to around Christmas and Easter. 
The real story of Jesus is not just the Famous Verse (John 3:16) we see in the end zone at football games.
The real story of Jesus is not just found in His Sacrifice and Atonement for all sin for all time at the Cross of Calvary. 
But the continuing real story of Jesus can be found in the FRUIT of that Sacrifice over the past 2000 years!

There is NO other belief system in the World which has benefited mankind than Christianity. In the next post on the Superiority of Christianity to any other so-called "belief" system in the world. You will see the power of God vs the corruption of man's systems, which are designed only to keep other men and women in bondage.

Therefore, which this full look into the Historical Jesus, from the Beginning, as we lay out the Foundation to show the world, WHY and HOW Christianity is the only belief system designed by the REAL GOD of Heaven!
