The Shepherds

Shepherds copy

The Jews of ancient Israel “knew not the time of their visitation” when their Messiah came to them the first time. Do we risk making the same mistake at the time of Jesus’ Second Coming?

 

This article by Angel J. Rodriguez, Senior Pastor of Houston Central Seventh-day Adventist Church, is a good biblical recount of the birth of our Savior. It contains some sobering insights we all need to be mindful of as we expectantly prepare for Jesus’ triumphant return.

It is interesting to note that out of all the people that God decided to reveal Himself to directly, it was the shepherds on the eve of the birth of His Son Jesus. The angels did not present themselves to the religious leaders. The angels did not present themselves to Herod. In stead they presented themselves to those who were considered part of the lowest class in society. Shepherds! Even the Egyptians in the time of Joseph did not think much of shepherds. Yet, it was this simple group that God … Continue reading

Top 10 Countdown of New Age Lies: #8

Reincarnation and the Immortality of the Soul

Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that a soul or spirit, after the body dies, can begin a new life in a new body here on earth.

KingOfKings

There is a great shaking coming in the Christian Church as Jesus’ Second Coming draws nearer.

Awareness of the times we live in

From all of the prophetic signs being fulfilled around us, we know that we’re very close to the second coming of Jesus. Evil is pervasive. Creation is unraveling – everything that God created is being reversed. The world is plunged into chaos and evil rulers are plotting to exterminate 80% of humanity. Most Christians understand that. But there is a real lack of understanding of what is going on behind the scenes, in heaven. Let me explain.

We’re living in the end time Day of Atonement – cleansing of the sanctuary – protracted cleansing, a long day that started in 1844 and is ongoing right now. The 2300-day prophecy given in Daniel 8:14 ended on October 22, 1844.

What is the Day of Atonement? Two goats were offered on that day, both for a sin offering. One goat, called the Lord’s goat, would be sacrificed for the purpose of cleansing the sanctuary from … Continue reading
