Keep listening to the end. Good teaching. May you be blessed.
Thank you Pastor JD!
I find it rather frightening that the amount of people falling for this climate change is so large. People are very deceived. God tells us in Hosea ….
First scriptures are concerning those who want to argue climate change is killing the animals and the fish in the sea. The second group is for those talking about the heat.
Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
Hos 4:1 KJV
By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
Hos 4:2 KJV
Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Hos 4:3 KJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Hos 4:6 KJV
(the below are about the heat)
Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?
Deu 29:24 KJV
They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
Deu 32:24 KJV
The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
Deu 32:25 KJV
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Rev 16:9 KJV
One number might get you someone or something .
So you have 2 choices. Let’s take a look.
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
AND CHOICE NUMBER TWO…
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
I choose 1911 for my help and I hope you do too!
So what does the word of God say about being an overcomer?
There are several instances it is used but I an going to go straight to 1st John who tells us how we become overcomers. The verses following that passage tell us about the rewards of being overcomers.
1st John 5
5 Who is the one that overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood. (I suggest you continue reading the rest of the chapter.)
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
(WARNING) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Dear Father in Heaven, my God, my King, you are worthy to be worshipped and praised and exalted in all the earth and the universe.
I pray Lord God that You might have mercy upon your children and that your grace might be poured out over us even though we are not deserving of it. We humbly ask you to help each of us in these last days. We are weak but in Your mighty strength we can continue on toward the goal You have set before us. Lord, You know each of our weaknesses in this flesh we currently dwell in, so please help us Lord, help us not to fear, help us to stand courageously for Your names sake. Help us to boldly testify to Your goodness and Your word and Your truth and the salvation that only comes from Your Son Jesus Christ . Help us that we might share the gospel of Jesus Christ without fear of man. We ask that You would do this supernaturally by the Holy Spirit because we left to ourselves will surely fail.
We ask all these things for Your glory and we give thanks in every circumstance and praise Your most holy name. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
(Pastor Charles Lawson)
I have to say that nothing much excites me these days, maybe by the time you turn 50 you have done all you really want. When you compare any of it to this…..well, need I say more?
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS.
My opinion is…..
What are you choosing? A gift for a wedding? Baby shower? What Dr to use? Where to work? What foods to eat? Some of these might be important and some not so much.
The one below holds eternal life and death. I would say it is pretty important.
And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.
We are called to a courageous faith in Christ Jesus. There is a clear warning, and it articulates that there are 2 sides to the war for our souls – there’s the side of those who worship the beast and his image, and the side who keep the commandments of God by faith in Jesus. The NLT says that we must, “endure persecution patiently”. Let this truth be a reminder that there is urgency to our bearing the gospel message. The world and everything in it is on the clock! Share the good news and seek always to remain in the love of Christ Jesus our Lord.

I was thinking about parents training their children.
The teachers who sincerely want students to learn morally right & wrong.
I have heard and even done so myself…”stop that or this or that’ll happen!” Often parents and teachers or those in charge do nothing, follow through does not happen. “But the next time…I mean it!” They quickly begin to not worry about what we say. They do as they wish.
Isn’t that the same thing as the REDLINE that our president drew?
I am not taking up for him BELIEVE me, but how is it any different than what many of us do everyday, or at least most of us have done at some point. THEN, I began to think about that as I was reading the words of our Lord. The living word. How often have we read about the judgement that will come? The famines? The pestilence? The terror unlike anything before? They are often referred to as warnings. I think we could also call them redlines. In Ezekiel 14 is just one example and you will find it below. You know, I have to say as parents we simply want to give our kids another chance. If we just tell them one more time. They sincerely said they had learned their lesson. I know that the word of the living God says that He wants that none should parish. While some never repent then there are many being saved. Dear brothers and sisters, He loves us. He loves us more than we could imagine. As all parents or teachers finally come to the point of “enough is enough”! No more chances and now you have to face the consequences. No video games, early curfew, grounded to your room or simply a timeout.
I wonder if America or any of the nations have finally just about reached the final warning? Read the passage below and as you read ask yourself what kind of sins have we as individuals or as nations who have simply “accepted” the sin. Killing babies by a name called abortion by the millions. Saying homosexuality is ok and forced to accept the sin and allow marriage. How is that different than saying sexual promiscuity is just fine or pornography is fine too. Everyone just throw the rules out the window. Do what you want. Just let not one of us forget, including myself, that when God decides enough is enough, as in the days of Noah, and He will. One day one of the warnings will be the final warning. I hope we are not going to blame God as the judgement comes upon us. We will have no one to blame but ourselves. Repent and pray and let Him forever change you before it is too late. Remember, regardless the time will come and EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
12 The word of the LORD came to me: 13 “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, 14 even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign LORD.
15 “Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the beasts, 16 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.
17 “Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its men and their animals, 18 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.
19 “Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and their animals, 20 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness.
21 “For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments—sword and famine and wild beasts and plague—to kill its men and their animals! 22 Yet there will be some survivors—sons and daughters who will be brought out of it. They will come to you, and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem—every disaster I have brought upon it. 23 You will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause, declares the Sovereign LORD.”
11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.
11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.
Our time is running out.
There have been more times than I can count that I can read the same passage over and over and see the same thing. I can at a later time read that same passage and my eyes are open to something so special and exciting! I believe there is a reason for the perfect timing of the mystery shown to us.
He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
It has already been reported to the disciples that Jesus has risen from the dead. Two disciples on their way to Emmaus encounter Jesus, but they are kept from recognizing Him. Jesus immediately seeks to get involved in their conversation, and they provide to Him their version of what is going on. These two disciples are downcast because nobody has actually seen Jesus, and their hearts are filled with doubt. They are walking and talking with Him but do not recognize Him. Even after opening scripture to them, they do not know Him, but they invite Him in. It is only after they extend this invitation to Jesus that He reveals Himself to them. Be courageous today and invite Jesus to reign in your heart and in your mind. Receive Him as your one and only Messiah.
