From the many pages of the Tenach (Old Testament) we find many instances of where Israel rebelled against G-ds commands, and his instruction to them. Our ancestors of Israel had G-ds very word reiterated to them over and over again, and yet they still failed to obey and follow G-d. But what does Israel have to do with today’s rebellious Christians? The decision to obediently follow G-ds word is every Christians own responsibility, but when the word has been made clear to a Christian, and a Christian still willfully chooses to rebel against G-ds word they are just plainly in sin. Just as G-d disciplined Israel when it had sinned against him, the same will happen to any Christian who chooses to rebel against G-d. Here a something to meditate on.

G-d continually seeks to cause his people to follow his word of truth, but yet many still choose to follow their own sinful ways.

Yishayahu. Isa.65:2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walks in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;

G-d says watch out! When you choose to rebel against him by choosing to take counsel which is not of G-d. Which is tantamount to or following errant men who themselves are in sin and teach it as the counsel of G-d.

Yishayahu. Isa.30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, says Yahveh, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: 

 Rejecting and resisting following and doing the word of G-d is tantamount to the sins of witchcraft, iniquity and idolatry.

1stSh’muel. 1Sam.15:22-23 And Sh’mu’el said, Has Yahveh great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.

Many times people and even ministers will use the excuse of the Holy Spirit is saying not to do this, or to do something when the Spirit is NOT saying anything period. I have found that immature Christians trying to sound spiritual use this as an escape or abuse to avoid truthful confrontation. They will insist that the spirit told them this or that, yet they have no biblical record, witness or basis to support what the spirit said or not.  If the Holy Spirit truly said something in regards to addressing ones problem, pursuance of an answer or confrontation between people. Wouldn’t both parties have the same conviction or answer if the spirit really said so? Wouldn’t the spirit clarify in the heart of both what G-ds will is for both, Instead of ministers one-sidedly and  falsely using or hiding behind the name of the Holy Spirit in order to justify their insecurity because they really have no answer from G-d or his spirit? I believe the practice of this is very abusive and ministers or whoever does this will be held responsible and accountable. I believe if one doesn’t have a clear answer from G-d they should simply be honest and admit that and leave the matter in peace, instead of lie or abuse the name of the Holy Spirit to justify their lack of hearing from G-d. Here’s something to meditate on.

 

G-d requires all to speak truth, not to use G-d’s spirit for the lack of that truth

 Eph 4:25 Therefore, disrobed from She’ker (Falsehood, Lying], let us speak Ha Emet (the Truth) each one with his re'a (neighbor), because we are e’varim (members) one of another.

 

When someone uses the Holy Spirits name and says he said something when he didn’t is considered or is tantamount to being a false witness

 Pro 12:17 He that speaketh emet (truth) declareth t’zedek (righteousness), but an ed she’karim, mir’mah (false witness deceit).

According to a self made teacher who made the headlines around the world on Saturday May 21st , said that at 6pm May 21st 2011 would be the end of the world as we know it. While making that huge errant and false claim many who are followers of this person are now left today totally deceived, ashamed, embarrassed and even mocked by the world who stated the true following scripture about the issue;

Mark 13:32  But of that Yom (day) and that hour knows no man, no, not the ma’laheem (angels) which are in shema’yeem (heaven), neither the Ben (Son), but the Av (Father).

Here are some biblical facts to meditate on and  consider about the end of the world as follows:

1. NO ONE KNOWS when the return of Messiah will come, yet it is inevitable to happen in our future (Mattiyahu. Matt 24:42). Just because this will happen will not mean the end of the world will occur because of it.

 

2. Will the coming of the Messiah be the end of the world? Again NO! Because according to scripture the events of a seven year tribulation will take place sometime after an interval or period of time has elapsed after the rapture appearing of the Messiah happens. After this period follows the Anti Messiah signs a seven year false covenant with Israel (Dan.9:27).This will be the beginning sign to the seven year tribulation getting under way, but this will not mean that the end of the world has come even at that time, but the beginning of the end of the age (Matt 24:8) before the second coming of the Messiah.

 

3. The bible never states that the world will ever end or be brought to an end (Yishayahu.Isa. 65:17-25), yet it does show clearly that there will be events so cataclysmic upon the earth(Yishayahu.Isa.28:22) that many will die or be killed because of it (Mattiyahu-Matt. 24:22 & v.29). But what the scripture here does NOT say is that the world will end or no longer exist even because of this.

 

4. Conclusion: Anyone who tries to say or predict that there is an end of the world or sets dates will find themselves as Mr. Campings is, errant and found out to be false. However Messiah Yeshua did warn that such people would appear in the last days (Mattiyahu.Matt 24:11), and that all of us are to be aware that when we do see these things to know that the very time of Messiahs return is very near (Luke.21:28). But yet, he himself makes no dates, nor a time of day in which we will see him appear. We are only to know that his coming will be as swift as a thief in the night (Matt. 24:43, & 1st Kefa-Peter 3:10-11).
