Do not make plans as if God does not exist.

Do not make plans as God doesn’t exist. Your plans are not His.

James 4:13-15

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. For you are just a vapor that appears for a little while, and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”

Do not judge someone’s heart or what motivates them. This is something ONLY God to do and only he can do.

James 4:11-12

Do not speak against one another, brothers and sisters. The one who speaks against a brother or sister, or judges his brother or sister, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you, judging your neighbor?

The Ultimate Exodus

“Each Exodus plague progressively weakened Pharaoh’s resolve to hold Israel in captivity. Pharaoh’s will was ultimately broken through the death of his first born as expressed in the tenth plague. In the same way, each divine judgment in Revelation will progressively weaken Satan’s grip on the planet until finally the entire world will be transferred into the glorious Messianic Kingdom. The death of God the Father’s “first born” son laid the groundwork for Satan’s ultimate defeat (Rev. 5:9). Satan’s sentence will finally be imposed as the scroll is progressively opened by God the Son.” – Dr Andy Woods

The Coming Kingdom

Jesus Returning To Rule The Earth Is Very Good News.

“So the kingdom did not arrive because the people would not prepare properly for it. But this did not mean that there would never be a Davidic, millennial kingdom. The Lord taught that it would not appear immediately (Luke 19:11), but he also predicted that the gospel, the good news of the kingdom, would be preached yet again in the future period of the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:14). And in that wicked time when Satan and the forces of evil will have almost total free reign, it will be very good news to know that the Messiah will soon rule on the earth. ” – Dr Andy Woods

The Coming Kingdom

The Counterfeit Authenticates The Genuine

“…Anti-christ not just in the sense of against Christ but in the place of Christ…but have you ever wondered why it is there’s no such thing as an anti-Buddha anti-Muhammad. Antichrist the false authenticates the truth and counterfeit validates the genuine.That’s why you’ll never see a counterfeit $70 bill, what’s the point, there’s no such thing as a genuine $70 bill. But you will find a counterfeit $100 bill why because there’s a genuine.The counterfeit authenticates and validates the genuine. So this Antichrist as he’s referred to in scripture among other names is coming in the place of Christ fancying himself and presenting himself as the savior of the world…” – JD Farag

John 14:27

Peace I leave you, My peace I give you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, nor fearful.
