1 Corinthians 15: 51, 52

 51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 

Paul talking to the Christians at Corinth, saying listen my brothers, we are not all going to die, but we are all going to be changed, the dead are going to be raised first - spiritual and glorified, then we Christians who are alive will be changed too.

Matthew 25

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridgroom.

2 And five of them were wise and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him


7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so;  lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Revelation 3:10

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience,

I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation,

 which shall come upon all the world, to try them

that dwell upon the earth.


1 Thessalonians 4: 15-18

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 .... you brothers are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief....  Paul talking about the Day of The Lord, which takes place during:

The Seven Year - End of The World - Peace Deal     Or Also Known As:  Daniel's 70th Week





My word for this month and for life is this: He who wins souls is wise.  I've been doing a lot of reading over the past week or two. Two of the books have been on Hell. I already read one book, which was so, so, but the book I'm reading now is really good.

All I can say is that I know personally in my life that I've been totally underestimating Hell - We all need The Fear of God!

If you read the Bible and take the verses about Hell literally, and to heart, You will come to the deduction, that Hell is so unbelievably, incomprehensible, in that it is terrorizing and traumatic, that for anybody in this life, to not take God or the Bible serious, is just plain crazy. And I know that I am 100% guilty as others who have or may have underestimated this place, and God.

When you think about it, we are all at God's mercy.  I was reading a book the other day by Woodrow Kroll, from Back to the Bible, it's a really good book, called "Turning Your Life Around With God's Word." I believe. 

There was a quote in the Book from one of our past Presidents - Woodrow Wilson, He said, ' I feel sorry for the men who do not read the Bible every day '.... 

There was a really good movie on TBN (don't recommend the channel except Sunday nights when they show movies) the other night about Joseph, and Jacob. At one part in the movie, Jacob was talking or arguing with his sons, (without Joseph or Benjamin I believe) and said how can I honor my sons if they will not honor me. 

My advice is: stay with everything that has to do with God -- Be Transformed by the Renewing of your mind! (Bible) And become a Son of God, click here :: Eternal Life

[ Back to the topic of Hell ]  

The attack on the Twin Towers 9/11, is a perfect description of the insanity of Hell.  There was a woman who was way up in the building, I believe, and instead of facing the fire that was ' 2,000 degrees, which would of  incinerated her in 15 seconds, ' she jumped to her death than to face the fire. - (From the Book '23 minutes in Hell)

That is like Hell.

I am under the impression that Hell is located under this earth. Beneath our very feet, there is most likely a place where people this very moment are in agony.  The core of the earth is 12,000 degrees (From the Book '23 minutes in Hell).  If Hell is anywhere near there, man you need to know that Jesus is the only way to not end up in that place. According to the Bible, Hell which will become the Lake of Fire is a real place. That's why Jesus is called a Savior, to save us from sin and to ultimately I would say, to save us from this place of Hopeless, incomprehendable, fright and terror of pain and torment or simply stated: Eternal Punishment.  The only way out of Eternal Punishment is to choose to learn from and follow Jesus.    

   *About the Book 23 Minutes in Hell - The Book uses a lot of good quotes I believe - from good Conservative Bible Teachers, and the Book is pretty interesting, along with a comprehensive listing of all the Scriptures in the Bible about Hell, which is pretty good - but The guy who wrote it, is I think possibly questionable. He may be into like the 3rd Wave Christianity Stuff or Christianity that is maybe WOF or something - It's a cool book - But I don't know if his experience was real, I think he probably made it up.

Ok I want to write this paragraph from Woodrow Kroll's Book, ' Turning Your Life Around with God's Word '

"British Anthropologist John D. Unwin carefully studied eighty civilizations that have risen and fallen over a thousand years. He discovered that a similar pattern ran through each.  In every civilization, people started out with strong moral values and a healthy emphasis on the family. Over time, however, conservative attitudes became more liberal, and the result was the decline of society's moral values. The family subsequently deteriorated, and society began to fall apart. In all eighty cases, the destruction of the nation was related to the destruction of the family. In most cases, that civilization collapsed within one generation of the destruction of the family unit. History proves that as the family goes, so goes the nation."

I'm going to quote Woodroll Kroll for the next two paragraphs that follow the above, 

"Unwins' study is not good news for America. If the strength of the family's moral fiber indicates the strength of society's moral fiber, no wonder we've come unraveled. When the Bible is not a daily part of family life, the family is sure to be fractured and society's stability threatened.

How effective are you at implementing God's plan in your family? If the stability of society depends on the strength of your family, and the strength of your family depends on the quantity and quality of your time in the Word, how much time does society have left?"

So I ask the question how much time do we have left? 

Looking at the Current Hour of The United States Of America, This is some of what you see unfortunately: 

  1. 40-50 million abortions,

  2. Divorce at maybe 1/2 the population,

  3. Homosexuality trying to get a foot-hold,

  4. Rampant pornography,

  5. And God being ex-communicated from Public Life.

I think we have got to be kidding ourselves if we think life is going to remain the same for much longer. God is going to intervene at some point.

However nobody knows God's thoughts, for 'God's thoughts/ways are far above our thoughts/ways, As The Heavens are above the earth,'  but given the above historical evidence - when virtue and morality lose influence, which is pretty much God's Will, destruction happens.  There are a lot of good things about the The USA too, a lot, but the hearts of the people are being led away from God, because there is a lack of Bible reading.
