Ik was ook eens een gelikte persoon. Door Cor van Ruitenbeek.

Ik, Cor van Ruitenbeek, was ook eens een gelikte persoon.

Ik was nog erger dan een gelikte persoon.

Ik was een addergebroed, een witgekalkt graf, van buiten mooi en van binnen zo rot als het maar zijn kan.

Eens schreef ik een brief naar een oom die kanker had en niet zolang meer te leven had.

Mijn oom geloofde niet en ik schreef in die brief dat hij een keuze moest maken.

Als mijn oom niet die keuze zou maken dan zou mijn oom naar de hel gaan.

Ik schreef mijn oom dat als hij niet een keuze zou maken voor de Heere Jezus hij naar de hel zou gaan.

Die brief werd niet in dank aangenomen en TERECHT.

Wat ik schreef naar mijn oom was dus in het geheel geen evangelie.

Ik was er nog erger aan toe dan mijn oom.

Het onderstaande was op mijn geloof van toepassing.

 

Jesaja 28: 10

10 Want het is wet op wet, wet op wet, eis op eis, eis op eis, hier wat, daar wat.

 

Ik was een lopende grafzerk; er zat totaal geen leven in mij.

Het was zo erg dat ik zelfs niet mocht denken, er werd voor mij gedacht.

Ik was net als mijn oom onwetend en eigenlijk nog meer onwetend dan mijn oom.

Als de pastors, waar ik over schreef ,onwetend zijn als het gaat over GODS OVERWELDIGENDE GENADE dan geldt dat ook voor ALLEN die de OVERWELDIGENDE GENADE niet kennen.

En dat geldt voor alle religieuzen onder ons en alle niet religieuzen onder ons.

 

Nu moet u niet denken dat ik het evangelie bracht al die jaren dat ik geloofde en een christen was.

Ik schaamde mij voor GODS Woord en het evangelie.

Het geloof moest ik uit mijn tenen halen en dan stond ik nog met lege handen.

Ik heb jaren gewerkt voor mijn eigen redding.

Ik moest wel elke keer dat witgekalkte graf of die grafzerk bijhouden want anders kwam het zwarte tevoorschijn.

In de bethel pinksterkerk te Tilburg werd ons het volgende voorgehouden:

We moesten zonder vlek en rimpel zijn.

 

Het gevolg er van was dat ik maar weer aan de was ging en strijken en dan heb ik het niet over het wasgoed.

Ik was jaren een nepper, ik deed net alsof, ik liep jaren met een masker op.

Ik heb jaren geprobeerd om GOD tevreden te stellen met nep werken wat niets anders is dan eigen werken.

Ik was nog vele malen erger dan de pastors waar ik over schreef.

GOD is niet tevreden te stellen met onze eigen gelikte werken.

GOD IS TE VREDE.

Al onze overtredingen, al onze doelmissers zijn voor eens en altijd uitgewist en kwijtgescholden.

 

Ik schreef gisteren nog een bemoediging naar een broeder.

Bij de broeder was parkinson  vastgesteld.

De bemoediging was dat HET BESTE KOMT NOG.

Het beste kan nu al uw deel zijn , ouderen en jongelui,  als u voor ogen houdt dat GOD AL TEVREDEN IS.

Het beste kan nu al uw deel zijn als u, ouderen en jongelui,  voor ogen houdt dat AL uw en jouw overtredingen en doelmissers voor eens en altijd zijn uitgewist en kwijtgescholden zijn.

En ik heb het over grote en kleine overtredingen en doelmissers die eens en voor altijd zijn uitgewist en kwijtgescholden is.

HALLELUJA, PRIJS DE HEER.

 

Ik wens u GODS rijke zegen, genade en liefde toe.


Micah Revealed the Identity of the Messiah for all Israel to See

One of the most amazing insights that has just given modern Israelis another look into the identity of the Messiah. The Prophet Micah left clues that clearly pointed to the Messiah’s Identity and what Israel would be involved in during the last days, not only Israel the modern day state of Israel but even the House of Israel still scattered abroad

Fire on the Mountain

Posted: 15 Jan 2018 07:35 PM PST

Gary recently wrote about the series of three strong 7.x earthquakes, amazingly similar in size and equidistant in time.

Today we hear of three volcanoes across the vast region of the Philippines and Indonesia that are erupting or whose eruption is imminent:

 

 

As I enjoyed some quiet time tonight I was reminded that the Israelites’ experience at Sinai was a wedding.  A wedding on a mountain with an earthquake, trembling and fire.

 

A time when the bride was lifted up as she entered into a covenant with God.

 

Ray Vander Laan is so very gifted and such a dedicated disciple—a blessing to me.  He unpacks this further:

 

 

Perhaps the mountains, earthquakes and volcanoes are stirring once again as God prepares for another wedding.

 

Mr. Matson has an interesting observation:

 

Watch for the Day
Luke 21:10–11 (NASB):

Then He continued by saying to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.’

 


The Prophet Zechariah And The Apostle John Show Us The Thousand Year Reign Of Jesus Christ From Jerusalem

Klik:>The Prophet Zechariah And The Apostle John Show Us The Thousand Year Reign Of Jesus Christ From Jerusalem

by Geoffrey Grider

Chapters 10-14 in the book of Zechariah are an absolute treasure trove of information for the student of Bible prophecy for detailed information on the Second Coming and earthly kingdom of Jesus Christ.

“And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” Zechariah 14:9 (KJV)

The Bible has much to say about the coming time when Jesus Christ will return to this earth as a conquering King, and claim His Throne in Jerusalem. Not in metaphor, simile or parable, but literally, visibly and physically. His reign as King over all the Earth will last for one thousand literal years, in a day period known as the Day of the Lord. Remember how Peter said that a “thousand years is as one day”? This is what he was referring to.

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8 (KJV)

The Day of the Lord will start with the Rapture of the Church, and then in order we shall see the rise of Antichrist, the time of Jacob’s trouble, the Mark of the Beast, the Battle of Armageddon, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as King, the binding of Satan for one thousand literal years while King Jesus rules His Kingdom on the Earth.

“And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.” Revelation 20:2-8 (KJV)

Read those verses and study what they are saying. This is not a metaphor for some cosmic happening, John is showing us that the Devil will literally bound for one thousand years while Jesus rules the Earth. This is not parabolic language, this is a listing of upcoming literal events and the order in which they will occur. The prophet Zechariah has more to tell us on the thousand year reign of Jesus.

Zechariah repeatedly uses the expression ‘that day’ when discussing the Second Coming and rule of Jesus

Chapters 10-14 in the book of Zechariah are an absolute treasure trove of information for the student of Bible prophecy for detailed information on the Second Coming and earthly kingdom of Jesus Christ.

·         THE LORD RETURNS TO FIGHT FOR HIS CITY JERUSALEM: Jesus in Matthew 24, talking about the persecution of the Jews in Israel in the time of Jacob’s trouble, warns the Jews to “flee to the mountains” for safety. Three and one half years later Jesus returns as a conquering King to defend Jerusalem and rescue the remnant of His People the Jews.  “In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12:8,9 (KJV) 

·         ISRAEL WILL SEE 66% OF ITS POPULATION DIE IN THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE: Israel will pay a whoppingly high price for their refusal to accept Jesus as the Messiah in the Church Age. Yes, Jesus comes to open their eyes and restore them, but only after two thirds have died under Antichrist.   “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.” Zechariah 13:8,9 (KJV)

·         JESUS RETURNS AS KING IN JERUSALEM: Zechariah shows us Jesus setting up His Kingdom in Jerusalem. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” Zechariah 14:6-9 (KJV)

·         PHYSICAL JERUSALEM IS RESTORED: Many Christians who study the Bible, when they don’t rightly divide, often mistake the New Jerusalem of Revelation 21 for the restored earthly Jerusalem in Zechariah. But according the the Revelation timeline, the heavenly New Jerusalem which will be the ‘many mansions’ of John 14 does not appear until after the Great White Throne Judgment that takes places after the thousand year reign of Jesus has concluded. The Church is not Israel and Israel is not the Church. Zechariah 14 references the same period of time as Revelation 20.  “All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.” Zechariah 14:10,11 (KJV)

·         THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN IS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: When Jesus sets up His thousand year kingdom, He does a funny thing. He restores the Temple, the Throne of David, and He institutes Old Testament feast days and worship. Remember in Acts 1:6 when the apostles ask when Jesus is going to ‘restore the kingdom to Israel’? They asked that because that’s what all the Old Testament prophesied would be for the Jews, the kingdom of heaven which is the literal, physical and visible earthly rule of King Jesus from Jerusalem. Here Zechariah sees the kingdom of heaven finally given to the Jews, as promised, with Jesus as the King.  “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.” Zechariah 14:16-18 (KJV)

Zechariah 13 and 14 follow Revelation 19 and 20 nearly blow for blow. Everything that Zechariah saw coming in the future, John in Heaven sees fulfilled before his very eyes! Now you may well ask, where is the Church during the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ? We are right here.

·         THE RAPTURED CHURCH WILL RULE AND REIGN WITH KING JESUS: In Revelation 4:1,2 we see the rapture of the Church, and in chapter 5 we see that the raptured redeemed are now as ‘kings and priests’ before the Lord, and will rule with Him during the thousand years. In Revelation 19:14, we saddle our horses to leave Heaven and follow Jesus into battle.  “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:9,19 (KJV)

The Church is the Body of Christ, and for one thousand years we shall rule and reign with Him as His Will and judgements are administered and carried out. This will be our role in the Kingdom of Heaven on this earth for one thousand years.

“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.” Romans 14:17 (KJV)

The only kingdom that exists right now is called the Kingdom of God, which is a spiritual kingdom that ever born again believer has entered into at the moment of their salvation. Christians are not “working to bring in the kingdom” as that can only be done by the literal, physical and visible appearance of the King at the Second Coming. We are not “reigning now” as some would falsely assert. John says that we will reign but only after the rapture. Beware of anyone trying to bamboozle you with a “kingdom now” false teaching.

The next king that this world will see is Antichrist, so if you’re saved you better thank God for the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. But that false king who pretends to be Jesus, as the ‘vicar of christ’, will face utter ruin when the real King shows up.

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20 (KJV)
