Nero Fiddles

My political views are very clear – I advocate God’s Rulership, yes I want to see Theocrasy based on the bible principles where words are promises, leaders are trusted and actions are required to be a citizen.

Nero is said to have fiddled as Rome burned. It doesn’t really matter whether it is true. What does count is the same disconnection between the ordinary person and the human elite rulers?

The chasm is great. Is Ukraine the prelude to a third world war? The answer is very simple, the path governments have chosen a path, people suffer and mothers weep for their sons and daughters but a climax to human rulership is on the horizon.

Apocolypse to Paradise

Throughout history people have promised that there is an end to humanity and civilisation. Those predictions are laughed at because times and prospective dates have been included. However, there is mounting evidence that human governments have now tipped the balance, the Apocolypse is looming.

Revelation chapter 6 introduces features that have been leaving this evidence for years:

Verse 1 – the rider on the White Horse – the resurrected Jesus Christ has been given his rulership with his enemies still functioning. He goes forward to conquer. He is the victorious warrior King.

Verse 3 – the rider on the Red or Fiery coloured horse takes peace away from the world, war is now common and the numbers dying in war are no longer limited to the soldiers but collateral damage affects everyone. Millions died in the 20th Century and the governments haven’t stopped wars.

Verse 5 – the rider on the Black Horse a world of poverty and riches existing and people controlled by market forces. The economics of this period of time have become perverse, those who work hard struggle to exist and those who are rich struggle to find purpose in their life.

Verse 7 – the rider on the Pale horse – death! by famine, warfare, deadly plague and every other means of taking life.

The prophetic picture vividly establishes the fact that we are pressed in at all sides. Three of the riders are there to remove hope but the first rider is going forth to conquer. Why? because it is time to liberate humanity, to resolve all the issues that prevent us all from enjoying life.

Verses 12 to 17 – human rulerships crumble before the Warrior King. They have no answers, they manage affairs from crisis to crisis. They look for someone to blame, Nero chose Christians, the world leaders will choose those who advocate that God’s Kingdom is the only hope for humanity.

The outcome of the Rider on the White Horse

Revelation chapter 7 reveals the next step in the salvation of those who put God’s Kingdom first in their lives. In verse 14 the survivors are identified as coming out of the “great tribulation” (the description of the war against God’s Kingdom), they prove themselves by their worship before the Throne. Yes, Theocrasy!

Verse 16 and 17 “They will hunger no more nor thirst anymore, neither will the sun beat down on them nor any scorching heat,17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them and will guide them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.”

The lesson

Political Rulers distract themselves from the inevitable outcome, astute individuals watch the events unfold, make certain they have moved to the winning side and warn others about the consequences of putting trust in human governments.

“Choose Life” The Fox commentator Larry Kudlow loves to say “Save America – kill the…” Human salvation is a consequence of informed choice – so “Save Humanity, choose life, embrace Theocrasy”

Study world events with an open Bible and an open mind and heart. Find Peace because you know what the future holds for us all.

A Test of Faith

Christians are facing the greatest period of personal threats to their faith. Is it happening to you?

Every day something challenges our resolve to remain faithful. This includes:

  • Public opinion
  • Political opposition
  • Our own desires
  • The media propoganda, and
  • Many other things

Do you ask when facing these challenges “why me? why us? why them?” We can all ask these questions and there are two scriptural answers note the first at Ecclesiastes 8: 9 “All of this I have seen, and I applied my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, during the time that man has dominated man to his harm”. this point is emphasised in the Psalms 146: 3 “Do not put your trust in princes Nor in a son of man, who cannot bring salvation.”

Human rulership, leadership and the inclination of the heart are never leading to salvation. Our lives are too short, we have the tendency to look after our own and left to ourselves the outcomes are always littered with unintended consequences.

The second scriptural reason 1 Peter 5: 8 “Keep your senses, be watchful! Your adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour someone.” that someone is you. Why? Let the Bible explain Revelation 12: 7 “And war broke out in heaven: Miʹcha·el and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9 So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.” He is on a limited timeline. Revelation 12: 12 ...”Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”

The scriptures give us hope, however, notice what the Bible also explains in Revelation 3: 11 “I am coming quickly. Keep holding fast to what you have, so that no one may take your crown.” Jesus promise to act on our behalf

Action on our part

We are not to fight or engage with the Satanic controlled governments and leadership of this world. We are to focus on what Jesus instructed at John 17: 3 “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.”

We must get to know God and Jesus Christ. Our faith draws us into union with Christ and his father. Therefore, we need to take note of the time, grasp the limited opportunities and build our faith.

Who are domestic terrorists?

Not so many years ago terrorism was seen as one ideology trying to push a message through the ultimate sacrifice of lives on both sides. Now we have the label “domestic terrorist” and the majority of countries already have legislation that can suppress messages that criticise or contradict the ruling state.

Anti-terror legislation appears as Patriotic, or civil order but who is affected or can be affected by the label?

Those with a Faith?

Notice the popular meaning of sedition

“conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.” In Russia and recently in France religious people have been labelled as seditionaries. Why? because they advocate God’s Kingdom, demonstrate a reluctance to engage with the state.

Here are couple of things that are seditionary:

  • Praying and living in harmony to the expression “Let Your Kingdom Come”
  • Following the bible tenet “We obey God as Ruler rather than men”
  • Remaining neutral – so not voting, enlisting in the military and working towards supporting Theocrasy

What are the seditionaries guilty of:

  • They pay taxes,
  • Few commit crimes
  • Support for neighbours
  • Seek peace and promote the love of the Christ

These peace-loving Christian groups are described as “passive terrorists” these present no threat of violence. They are the core of law-abiding societies.

The Example

Pilate announced to the religious and political leaders gathered to call for the life of a man 2,000 years: “I find no crime in this man.” the response from those in control responded in Matthew 27: “22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.”

Another example who copied Jesus is recorded in Acts 7 and how did the rulers respond in verse “57 At this they cried out at the top of their voices and put their hands over their ears and rushed at him all together.

Should we be surpised?

Jesus words quoted in Luke 21: 12 “But before all these things happen, people will lay their hands on you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and governors for the sake of my name.13 It will result in your giving a witness.”

This is an expression used in the words that prophised the last days and what it is like to live through the most challenging and exciting time in our history. Luke 21: 16 “Moreover, you will be handed over even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death,17 and you will be hated by all people because of my name.

Thousands over the years have sacrificed their lives for the reality of the Kingdom Christians pray for – God’s Kingdom the only hope of restoration. Do we need to take up arms against a government or authorities? – NEVER!!!

Human governments will take a stand against the greatest government as stated in Psalm and when they do it will be quick and effective as Daniel saw in his vision recorded at Daniel 2: 44.

The question really is where are we in this battle of words now? and what are we prepared to sacrifice when the rhetoric ends and religious organisations have no place, are we going to be in the silent majority or are we already showing that we advocate God’s Kingdom, Jesus Rulership and the restoration of Theocrasy?

In the words of Joshua the judge in Israel Joshua 24: 14 “Therefore, fear Jehovah and serve him with integrity and faithfulness, and remove the gods that your forefathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt, and serve Jehovah.15 Now if it seems bad to you to serve Jehovah, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve, whether the gods that your forefathers served on the other side of the River or the gods of the Amʹor·ites in whose land you are dwelling. But as for me and my household, we will serve Jehovah.”

Remember when Jesus stood before the people and Pilate offered to release him the people chose a known seditionary and murderer so do not be surprised by the reaction of those around you and those who hold power now when they perceive they are performing good work.

Only be courageous and very strong, stand still and see the salvation of God through Jesus Christ because the battle is not ours we do not need to fight governments have chosen to wage war with God.

So being labelled as a seditionary for Christian values is to follow in the steps of the Master Jesus Christ.

End to Suffering – Real Hope

At this time of year, many people are reflecting on the past year and then setting goals for the future or wondering what things will look like? Just what will the New Year bring?

Humanity has suffered during 2021 – the pandemic, more natural disasters and loss of life due to the events, war famine and social unrest plus the personal economic pressures present a short-list, but we have all had additional issues and problems to deal with.

They are the problems of today and yesterday but what of the future?

Bible Prophesy

The Bible is accurate when it describes this period of time we live in – critical times, hard to deal with, the end times or last days because left to human solutions there will be so few of us left. Yet the bible promise is that when we see these times we aren’t to lose our faith, rather we should “stand up!” (Luke 21: 28) because deliverance is at hand.

Jehovah opens the future to us by telling us about the present, even though it was written 2000 years ago and through the Bible, he explained what his Kingdom would achieve for Humanity. Note the words in Revelation 21: 4, 5 “And God himself will be with them.4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new”.

Gods Kingdom

Christians have prayed for God’s Kingdom for 2,000, the unfolding of history indicates that the bible record is accurate when it discusses human rulership, the outcomes and the present world conditions. Therefore, through personal research and study, we can establish for ourselves that God’s promises are to be relied upon.

The world is heading for its’ own reckoning so it is time to choose what side we are on. Find out more through a detailed study of the Bible with the assistance of a local Christian who has taken those steps and made the promises of God certain for themselves.

We can really enjoy life forever this is the Real Hope based on faith and understanding just what Jehovah is doing for each of us today.

The End of Suffering – Through the Death of Jesus

Many have spent the last few days thinking about the birth of Jesus, focusing on him as a baby. Celebrating his birth in religious and social settings based on traditions.

How was the birth of Jesus described in the Bible? Luke 2: 10 But the angel said to them: “Do not be afraid, for look! I am declaring to you good news of a great joy that all the people will have.11 For today there was born to you in David’s city a savior, who is Christ the Lord.12 And this is a sign for you: You will find an infant wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger.”13 Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying:14 “Glory in the heights above to God, and on earth peace among men of goodwill.

Note that the account refers to Jesus as the “Saviour” by the Angel. His birth, life and sacrifice would result in “on earth peace among men of goodwill”.

Relevant for today!

Can the birth of a baby over 2000 years ago have any effect on today and our future?

How can his birth bring peace to the earth?

The words of John 1: 29 “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and he said: “See, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” highlight the role Jesus took on, taking away the sins of the world. How could he do this?

The Bible explains that the scales of justice must be balanced. Adam the first Human is created perfect, his sin is the direct cause of human suffering and death. He passed imperfection to his family. To balance the scale another perfect human life would need to be tested to demonstrate that humans will worship God voluntarily and sacrifice everything. Jesus a perfect man, directly identified by God as his son (Adam is also called a son of God) performed many miracles, taught about God’s right to rule and God’s Kingdom as being the only solution to Human problems. The Bible accounts clearly show Jesus was executed but no crime or sin was found against him. False charges led to his death.

So the scales balanced. To prove this the accounts continue to explain Jesus resurrection and how Jesus was elevated to his father’s side.

Jehovah God appointed his resurrected son Jesus to be the King of his Kingdom the very point of Jesus prayer Matthew 6: 9 “You must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified.10 Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth. What is God’s will for the? Simple! the restoration of the conditions given to Adam. These include:

  • Peace
  • Good Health
  • Worthwhile work
  • Homes for everyone
  • Safety and Security
  • Food
  • an end to all the isses that affect human society, including human governments.

The key point to take from this post remains that Jesus as a child had not achieved any of these things, he had to be tested, publicly and the outcome had to demonstrate that a perfect human would serve Jehovah God out of love even to the point of death.

The end to all suffering impacts us be we can “Enjoy Life Forever”, take this opportunity to consider the bible’s discussion of real hope and lasting benefits for you and those you love.

Life and Abortion – Right or Wrong?

Statistics from Worldometers 25th December2021

  • 137,565,316 Births this year
  • 41,907,424Abortions this year

Desire to reproduce

Humans naturally value life, we have a desire to ensure the human race continues, according to the Bible explains why please note the words at Genesis 1: 28 “Further, God blessed them, and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving on the earth.””

We care about life! The evidence is overwhelming. Fetal surgery is possible after 18 weeks and we celebrate this as an achievement of science. Surgeons have saved a life!

In a nearby, theatre another foetus is terminated after 20 weeks because it is not a life. A strange reflection of rationalising personal decision-making.

Ask the difficult questions

When does life begin? Who determines when a moral wrong is a legal right?

Life is so precious we see how hard we strive to remain alive at all costs. All around the Globe charities are fighting to preserve the lives of newborn babies who are at risk of dying a painful and avoidable death, and yet the developed countries are fighting to terminate the life of the unborn. This is creating a social Paradox.

Why choose to Post this on December 25th?

Today over 1 billion people around the globe will focus on the significance of one new life, whether the date is right or not the words of the Angel in Luke 2: 10 “But the angel said to them: “Do not be afraid, for look! I am declaring to you good news of a great joy that all the people will have.11 For today there was born to you in David’s city a savior, who is Christ the Lord.12 And this is a sign for you: You will find an infant wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger.”13 Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying:14 “Glory in the heights above to God, and on earth peace among men of goodwill.””

This one life had the potential to change the futile existence of humankind. This child atoned for the sins of generations. So at what point did this child matter? Luke 1: 30 “So the angel said to her: “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.31 And look! you will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus.32 This one will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and Jehovah God will give him the throne of David his father,33 and he will rule as King over the house of Jacob forever, and there will be no end to his Kingdom.””

The account explains that once Holy Spirit had acted this foetus was blessed the child’s life had begun.

So let us answer the question properly.

When humans were created God gave us free will, the right to choose. That choice was simple to follow his guidance and benefit ourselves and society or determine what is right and wrong for ourselves.

Now the choice made on a personal level says whether we are prepared to accept God’s guidance and live by his standards or we only want to answer to ourselves.

A true Christian has no second thought, life is precious, when we were created it was clear we were to take care of all life, therefore, with abortion, there is only one route.

Does that mean there isn’t any hope?

Mainstream churches have softened their stance to the Bible standards over the years but does that mean God’s standards have changed? Never.

So why are conditions carrying on like this for so long when it is obviously not what God purposed. 2 Peter 3: 9 Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.

Whilst there is time left for salvation all have the chance to get to know God, to align their life and then share the things they find from the bible with others. How? Take time to study the bible! Examine why we can trust God’s word and develop a respect for guidance that never fails us even when discussing the most challenging and contentious of moral subjects.

End of Suffering – Getting to Know God

To benefit from the wonderful promises the Bible makes about our future, an end to all suffering, life on a paradise earth and real peace Jesus explains in John 17: 3 “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” remain the crucial steps we must take.

But how do we get to know God?

The Bibles reveals two ways:

  • By looking at and studying the natural world – Creation
  • Reading and meditating on the things written in the Bible

Creation reveals the power, energy, design and control that surrounds us for all living things and the Universe itself. From the smallest molecule to the vast Universe we observe conforming design, arrangement and purpose. The design of the wings of birds or the honeycomb structures of bees all reveals that although complex the same principles apply.

The Bible reveals and unfolds the purpose of creation, why God created people and then his purpose for their home, planet earth. The Bible explains how our lives have purpose and what it takes to be lead a happy life now, linking this to a strong foundation for the life to come.

What do we do first?

Develop a friendship with God, acknowledge that there are many things that science and philosophy can’t rationalise, fail to explain and ridicule. Ask yourself what don’t I know and what do I want to know?

To build a friendship names are important. The Bible repeatedly reveals the name God chose because it had purpose, meaning and formed a description of his personality. Psalm 83: 18 “May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth”.

You may struggle to find that in the translation you use but the original Hebrew Text contains and uses Jehovah more than 6500 times. The meaning of the name “he causes to become”.

Find out more about Jehovah, get to know the God of the Bible and not the propaganda of those who hide the truth. Once you know who he is then build a relationship with Jehovah.

Where does Justice begin?

Wherever we are in the world society needs to be centred on equality and justice. This forms the core of government, rulership and peace.

Do Peace and Justice come from having a book of laws?

Historically, hundreds of laws are designed not for the poor but the powerful, prevent the loss of property and promote the idea that individual rights come from a document.

Is this where Justice begins? In the USA we see through court reporting how information is skewed, spun and justice is defined by the crowd of media and public opinion in the 21st Century. Justice enshrines the concept of “Innocent until proved beyond a reasonable doubt” a person is guilty. Society no longer sees this as the benchmark.

Justice begins with Love

Yes, it begins with Love for God, Love for neighbour, Love for life and Peace.

Jesus words in Matthew 5: 9 – “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Peace is an expression of justice, it is a result of pursuing justice and requires that each of us put the needs of others ahead of our own.

Civil unrest isn’t a call for justice, it is a demand for retribution, like baying hounds chasing the fox and when caught the damage is catastrophic.

The first principle we have to acknowledge Ecclesiastes 8: 9 All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man hath power over another to his hurt. or as another translation renders it “9All this I have seen, and there was an applying of my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, [during] the time that man has dominated man to his injury.”

Death is the final arbiter for us all – we bring nothing into the world and take nothing away, so we are custodians, not owners. Caretakers with a clear job to do. We decided that humankind could effectively take on the responsibility for equality and justice but society failed.

The Apostle Peter tackled the subject of the outcome of Human rulership and what has to happen to achieve, equality and justice in 2 Peter 3: 11 through 13 “Since all these things are to be dissolved in this way, consider what sort of people you ought to be in holy acts of conduct and deeds of godly devotion,12 as you await and keep close in mind the presence of the day of Jehovah, through which the heavens will be destroyed in flames and the elements will melt in the intense heat!13 But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.”

Human Rulership is to be dissolved – removed, irradicated and replaced. Now many argue we have the right to run our own lives and that is the choice we are faced with, do we continue to run our own lives, destroy the planet, affect all other life on earthy or do we recognise that we have a limited scope and understanding.

Recently, watching a television series looking at the universe the presenter made an astounding point when speculating about the future, he spoke with conviction and ended with “if anyone says they know or understand don’t believe them” In other words ‘trust me I don’t know what I’m talking about’.

When science, the media and government expect you to blindly follow and believe can you really say you’re running your life? Justice begins with information, knowledge and wisdom, treating everyone as an equal, recognising that we all have strengths and right now weaknesses. When we fail to recognise these things society begins to break down, justice fails, so we need a universal set of standards, consistent government and fantastic leadership.

Reading Matthew chapters 5 through 7 creates a set of principles that can change our lives.

Therefore, Justice Begins with Knowledge, spiritual awareness and consistent leadership. Want to find out more then it is time to research the Kingdom or Government that promises to put an end to all injustice afflicting the world.

True Justice is from God!

The End of Suffering – How can we benefit?

The Bible assures us that very soon we will see the end of suffering. God promises he will remove this ungodly human society and all the problems that go with it, and through all the signs we are given in the bible we know that this time is very soon.

1 John 2: 17clearly states: Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but the one who does the will of God remains forever.

So if we want to remain forever in a world where God’s Kingdom has eliminated suffering, illness and hardship, what must we do?

Again the Bible tells us what we must do to benefit from these wonderful blessings. In John 17: 3 This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. This scripture stresses that we must come to know God. This is not simply saying we believe in God but by becoming his friend, getting to know him and what he requires of us.

Please visit the website and download a copy of the publication Enjoy Life Forever in your own language which will help you find out more about God and all the things he has already done for us.

The End of Suffering – when will the end come?

The bible distinguishes between the “end of the world” and the destruction of the planet and humankind. The clear statements enable all who study the Bible to quickly realize that we are discussing the end of the corrupt rulership, systems of control, commerce and religion, and those who make it happen.

The “end of the world” is the end of wickedness, turning good to bad, principles to problems, honesty and faith things to be kept to ourselves.

When is this change going to happen?

Jesus left a clear sign of the things that will take place just before the change in world rulership. Matthew 24: 7 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another.8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress.

In the parallel account in Luke 21: 10 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.11 There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.

We continue to experience the escalation of these events and problems and they are now global.

What are the people like? 2 Timothy chapter 3 speaks of a drastic moral decline during a period described as the Last Days. To understand why these must be the last days look at Revelation 11: 18 But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time came for the dead to be judged and to reward your slaves the prophets and the holy ones and those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”

Without that interjection humans will ruin the earth. So we need answers to some serious questions:

  • Who is going to bring these ones to ruin?
  • How is this going to happen?
  • Can we trust the messenger?
  • How much longer do we have to wait? and
  • What comes next?

The answers to these questions are contained in the Bible and it is the right time to begin to dig deep into this book that has guided so many honest people over the centuries.

For assistance in studying the Bible the aid and interactive course materials used in “Enjoy Life Forever” will help you start that exploration.
