DREAMS AND VISIONS continued ---

The streets and the world fade away around us. Still holding tightly to His robed leg, we stand in a circle
of fuzzy black nothing. The fuzzy nothingness changes to sky and clouds, and we are moving swiftly
through them. We stop over a large city which looks like New York, but maybe not New York. The Lord
points at it and says, "This is a cesspool of iniquity and we will destroy it!" Just then, something like a
large meteor fell from the sky and destroyed the city. After that we traveled for a time through the clouds.
This time when we stopped, it is over a large wide valley, with a patch-work of farms and fields as far as
the eye could see. You could see the steeple of a small white church in the center of the valley. The Lord
pointed at the valley and said, "Someday, this will be yours." The dream ends here.

When I looked up and saw Jesus, there was no doubt in my mind. It was His presence that gave me
comfort and drove away the fear. When I ran to Him, I was too terrified to yell, "Save me!", but it was at
the top of my mind. He saved me. I came to Him as a child. I can't imagine comeing to Him in any other
way. It gives me comfort to here those words again - as He laid His hand on my head - "Do not be afraid
John, I will take care of you."

There is much in this world to be afraid of. Go and cling to Him, as I do, He will drive away your fears,
and take care of you - forever. The love of God in Christ Jesus is greater than all your problems and fears.

Thank you Lord, I love you.

By believing in the Lord - to acknowledge God as our Father - He treats us as His children. Forgiving and
forgetting out sins; providing every need. Being righteous children of God, we should honor our Father by
showing others the same kind of love.

GOD IS


Operates inside and outside of this universe. He created everything - seen and unseen. He exists in a
different realm - a eternal, everlasting place. He is not subject to the laws He established here; He does not
feel the efects of time; He does not age.

I AM


The only way to God the Father is through Jesus Christ.

I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6

Jesus Christ is the good path of life, love, and truth. He is Jacob's Ladder. The finger of God. Being of like
substance to the Father.

He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on earth, with it's top reaching to Heaven, and the
angels of God were ascending and descending on it.
Gen 24:12

He then added, "I tell you the truth, you shall see Heaven open and the angels of God ascending and
descending on the Son of man."
John 1:51

When you confront or witness to a 'new ager' or astrologer or mormon, they will tell you, "There are many
roads to God, and you are a narrow minded Christian hypocrite." I find it fascinating that they quote
scripture whenever they say that.

Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those
who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those
who find it are few.
Mat 7:13,14

IS THERE A HELL?


Yes. Most definitely!

Jesus said, "I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky."
Luke 10:18

The Lord answered, "Him only who has sinned against me will I strike out of my book."
Exod 32:33

Heap guilt upon their guilt, and let them not attain to your reward. May they be erased from the book of
the living, and not be recorded with the just!
Psalm 71:28,29

The beast was caught and the false prophet who had performed in its sight the signs by which he led
astray those who had accepted the mark of the beast and those who had worshipped its image. The two
were thrown alive into the fiery pool of burning sulfur.
Rev 19:20

The devil who had led them astray was thrown into the pool of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the
false prophet were. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Rev 20:10

But as for cowards, the unfaithful, the depraved, murderers, and deceivers of every sort, their lot is in the
burning pool of fire and sulfur, which is the second death.
Rev 21:8

This is the word of the Lord! So believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God, the Creator of the universe, for
salvation and love your neighbor to gain your reward.

Astrologers, mind-readers, channels say they communicate with dead people. I have heard, they ask the
dead if what the Bible says is true. The dead they think they communicate with says, "You can follow any
teaching to get here." My first question is; how do you know it is a 'good spirit'? How do you know your
not talking to a clever demon who wants to deceive you? The channel might say, "Well, I knew this
person, and he did not believe in God, yet he is not burning in Hell." Has Judgement Day; the day of the
Lord come yet? No. Therefore, when the Great White Throne is set up, and the books are opened, will the
man who did not love or even believe in the God who gave him life be written in the book of life? No.
Another book will be opened, in this one will have been recorded every mis-spoken word, every lie, every
iniquity. He will gain the reward he has worked for all his life. To burn in Hell forever.

THE END


God is. He is that He is. Beyond the comprehension of man. The Creator of the universe. How can anyone
subtract anything from His most excellent way. To do so is to invite caos in our lives and in the world.
Life is Heaven with God and Hell without Him. Why do we make it so complicated?

A society with no laws or morals. Who by reasoning through a cloud of sin and selfish desire begins to
legalize self-destructive behaviors.

Has God set laws for our behavior to inconvenience us, or has He set them to keep us from destroying
ourselves? And because the laws were set to keep us whole, it shows His love for us.

Because the society desires self destruction, they ignore the laws of God. There is no love in a society with
people who take and do not give. And because God knows the hearts of men, and sees they want self-
destruction, He will grant their wish.

The machine society of ours must be growing too painful, sinful, and selfish for man to bear. When the
votes are counted, and the fullness of the number is complete; the balance will tip to the side of
destruction.

By the Grace of God, the imperfect Church - The Body of Christ, will be removed from the face of the
earth - as Lot and his family were removed from Sodom and Gommorah - and the end time scenario will
play itself out.

Why do we have to wait another 1000 years after that for Judgment Day? I don't know. It would seem that
when the time is complete, then that would be Judgment Day. All in God's perfect time. But He wants the
1000 years to weed out the flock. To test the hearts of man some more. To get a perfect people.

The Plan. Have pity on the lost. All life is precious. And the eternal nature of man's soul shows us that it
is a God-given thing. Have pity for the lost. They are worse - much worse off than the animals. A dog will
die and that is it. It's life-force returns to God. It does not have a reasoning mind. To love is the highest
achievement any one can make. Once you have made the free-will decision to love, you are not far from
the kingdom of God. The decision to love transcends the barrier between being an animal - a beast -and
the likeness of God. Jesus Christ is the only way to God because He is the Love of God. God is love. The
only way to the Love of God is by the Love of Christ - the way, the gate, the door, Jacob's ladder.

And at the core of a man is the heart. Fill your heart with the love of Christ. Love is the truth that will set
you free.

That will be a proud day - the day of the Lord. The best and brightest of man set against the Almighty arm
of the Lord!?? The ultimate foolishness. No matter how mighty or incredible the forces man masters - he
still sits within the realm of God's creation - the material universe. Operating within the laws God
established to make it run. One man operating outside of time could destroy an army of millions.

God is outside of time. As we decay in this material universe - He is unchanging forever - past, present,
and future. Here we should except the gift of eternal life, the fountain of youth, that which makes life
worth living, the truth which will set us free, the love of God in Christ Jesus. We are brilliant who have
given our hearts to the Lord. Believe in Jesus Christ; it is the smartest move anyone can make.

The most intelligent thing anyone can do is; Love the Lord and love your neighbor. Do: Honor life; Give
love; Be true.

Good Father, Lord YHWH, Pure and Perfect Spirit of life, love, and truth, continually fill me with your
Holy Spirit.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty, Light and Love of my soul, transform me into your image and
likeness.

I love you Lord!

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, satisfy and purify me. Dear Lord, dear God, I wish that all people who
have been baptized in the name of the Lord; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be purified in the
blood of the Lamb of God. Please pour out your limitless grace upon them. Dear Lord, Dear Savior, Dear
Jesus, in your Holy Name, I pray, Amen!

LETTER TO AN ATHEIST


Dear Neighbor,

      Please read this letter out-loud.

      Reality. That which we see, touch, hear, and smell. These are what we use to tell us truth from error. I
will attempt to help you 'see' God.

      Look at your wife. Is she real? Look at your dogs. Are they real? Just to make sure, touch them. What
is it that keeps you together? What gives you the motivation to work to provide for them? Why do you
have a 'religious shrine' in your living room to a dead pet? The answer to all of these questions is that you
LOVE them. Can you deny that this is true? Your head may deny that LOVE is what keeps your family
running, but your heart - the core - the bottom line - the real you cannot.

      O.K. Now let us go beyond the small circle of your home, and open your eyes to the truth. You LOVE
your dogs, so you take them to the vet and buy them food. The vet takes care of your pets because he
LOVES animals. The farmer grows food and sells it to provide for his family because he LOVES them.

      What is LOVE?

           LOVE is patient, LOVE is kind, it does not envy,
           it does not boast. It is not proud, it is not rude,
           it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered.
           LOVE keeps no record of wrongs.
           LOVE does not delight in evil, but rejoices with
           the truth.
           It always protects, always trusts, always hopes,
           always perseveres.
           LOVE never fails.

      By looking at our world and beyond, we can see, touch, smell, and taste that LOVE is real - it is true.
The clothes we wear, the food we eat, the homes we live in are all the direct result of people acting on the
inspiration of LOVE. It could have been LOVE of money or LOVE of self or LOVE of family. The One
Spirit which motivated these people was LOVE. LOVE IS REAL.

                          GOD IS LOVE

      God is the Spirit which inspires people to take care of themselves and their fellow man. WHY is the
world a mess? WHY is there pollution? WHY do people kill each other? WHY are there starving
children?

      Because people have not obeyed LOVE.

 A Maxim:
           Your Prime Focus is what you worship.
           What you worship is what inspires you.
           Faith is acting on the inspiration.

      LOVE is the highest goal of a persons life. How can a person get TRUE LOVE and fully achieve the
benefits of it? First, you must admit your imperfections. That you do have a rude mouth or you cheat on
your wife or murder children or cannot cook very well or you have bad breath. In order to be healed, you
must first acknowledge you are sick. We admit our imperfections and impurities by saying 'I am a sinner'.
All of mankind is imperfect and impure and are sinners. TRUE LOVE is perfect. When we say 'I love
you'- we are saying 'you are perfect in my eyes and I accept you'. The meaning of the name Jesus is - the
Lord is Salvation. That boils down to - LOVE is Salvation. Jesus Christ = LOVE is King.

And the Bible says:
           "As many received Him (Jesus), to them gave He
            power to become the sons of God, even to them that
            believe on His name."
      John 1:12

Jesus' commandment is to:
           LOVE one another as I have loved you.
                          John 15:12

When you obey LOVE you:
           Honor Life
           Give Love
           Be True

      Teaching children to feed each other when they are hungry, clothe each other when they are naked,
house each other when they are cold - how can this be abuse?

      To abide in the LOVE of Jesus is to take care of one another and forgive them of their imperfections.
To obey LOVE is to be humble. LOVE is the truth that will set you free!

Now consider these facts:
      12 men were tortured to death without denying Jesus or
      his miracles. Would you for a fantasy?
      Who moved the stone from Jesus' tomb?
      Jesus Christ was a real man as recorded in Jewish
      historical documents, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Josephus - a
      Jewish historian (37-98 AD, The Jewish War, Jewish
      Antiquities, Against Apion, and The Life), and the Bible
      itself states.
      If you will not accept LOVE as real, then you are on your own. If you do not understand LOVE, you
will never understand the Bible. Free-will is to accept God or reject Him. Life without God is Hell - life
with God is Heaven. Simple.

                                  Your Neighbor,
                                  John
