"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,[whosoever readeth, let him/her understand:]."
[Matthew 24:15.]  Here is our Lord referring us to Daniel 8:13,14 and showing us that the abomination was still future of His time here on earth and pointed to Rome rather than Antiochus Epiphanies as the church of Rome would have us to believe. The immediate abomination standing in God's holy place was the destruction of the temple in earthly Jerusalem, but the 2300 days of years in Daniel 8:14 are 2300 years reaching far beyond 70 A.D. to the heavenly temple that needed cleansing. When modern Bible translators halved the 2300 days into 1150 days, they are making a big mistake. Or should we say deception? They are taking the supplied word 'sacrifice' which is not in the original text and the words evening and morning to mean 2 sacrifices. If a Jew would say sacrifice, he would say morning and evening and not evening and morning like God named the full days in Genesis chapter one. Therefore it must mean full and not half days. Since the cleansing of the Sanctuary refers to the day of atonement, it was one day in the year it took place, therefore 2300 times are automatically 2300 years reaching from Daniels time to ours in the 1800's. Matthew 24 is all about the destruction of the temple and the second Advent of Jesus and He specifically warns us against deceptions. Rome and the Protestants have obscured Christ' work in the heavenly sanctuary for our salvation and has deceived Christianity in looking down to an earthly temple to be rebuilt instead of looking up to our great and high priest Jesus Christ in the heavenly temple.

"Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing comes to you."
(John 5:14).
"Sanctify them through thy truth" (17:17), so Christ prayed.  Error never sanctifies.  The Hoy Spirit is the great sanctifying power.  Truth is the medium of sanctification.  By reading and feasting upon the Word of God, by practicing the truth at all times, we receive power to glorify God.  But the ministry of the Word is of no value to the receiver unless he has that faith which works by love and purifies the soul.
The Word of God is our council and to be consulted with prayer.

And he said, let me go, for the day is breaking.  And he said, I will not let you go, until you bless me." (Gen.32:26).
O what an amazing love and condescension!  The Lord Jesus encourages His believing ones to ask for the Holy Spirit.  By presenting the parental tenderness of God, He seeks to encourage faith in the reception of the gift.  The heavenly Parent is more willing to give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him than earthly parents are to give good gifts to their children.
God has promised.  If we would reach up higher and expect more, our petitions would reveal the quickening influence that comes to every soul wh ask with the full expectation of being heard and answered.
The Lord is not glorified by the tame supplication which show that nothing is expected.  He desires every one who believes, to approach the throne of grace with earnestness and assurance.  Do we realize the magnitude of the work in which we are engaged?  If we did, there would be more fervency in our prayers.  Our entreaties would rise before God with convincing earnestness.  We would plead for power as a hungry child pleads for bread.

"This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Phil.3:13,14).
A new year is before us and an old one left behind us.  How can you look back on it?  Have you made advancement in the divine life?  Have you increased in spirituality?  Have you crucified self, with the affections and lusts?  Have you an increased interest in the study of God's Word? Have you gained decided victories over your own feelings and waywardness?  Oh, what has been the record of your life for the year which now has passed into eternity, never to be recalled?
As you enter a new year, let it be with an earnest resolve to have your course onward and upward.  Let your life be more elevated and exalted than it has been so far.  Make it your aim not to seek your own interest and pleasure, but to advance the cause of your Redeemer.  Remain not in a position where you ever need help yourself, and where others have to guard you to keep you in the narrow way
You may be strong to exert a sanctifying influence upon others.  You may be where your soul's interest will be awakened to do good to others, to comfort the sorrowful, strengthen the weak, and to bear your testimony for Christ whenever opportunity offers.  Aim to honor God in everything, always and everywhere.  Carry your religion into everything.
Prepare for eternity with such an zeal as you have not yet manifested.  Educate your mind to love the Bible, to love the prayer meeting, to love the hour of meditation, and, above all, the hour when the soul communes with God.  Become heavenly-minded if you would unite with the heavenly choir in the mansions above.
A new page is turned in the book of the recording angel.  Let a record be stamped there which you will not be ashamed to have revealed to the gaze of men and angels.

"Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you." (Amos 5:14)
Satan is using every means to make crime and debasing vice popular. We cannot walk the streets of our cities without encountering flaring notices of crime presented in some novel or to be acted at some theater. The mind is educated to familiarity with sin. The course pursued by the base and vile is kept before the people in the periodicals of the day, and everything that can excite passion is brought before them in exciting stories. They hear and read so much of debasing crime that the once tender conscience, which would have recoiled with horror from such scenes, becomes hardened, and they dwell upon these things with greedy interest.

Many of the amusements popular in the world today, even with those who claim to be Christians, tend to the same end as did those of the heathen. There are indeed few among them that Satan does not turn to account in destroying souls. Through the drama he has worked for ages to excite passion and glorify vice. The opera, with its fascinating display and bewildering music, the masquerade, the dance, the card table, Satan employs to break down the barriers of principle and open the door to sensual indulgence. In every gathering for pleasure where pride is fostered or appetite indulged, where one is led to forget God and lose sight of eternal interests, there Satan is binding his chains about the soul.

Our only safety is to be shielded by the grace of God every moment, and not put out our own spiritual eyesight so that we will call evil, good, and good, evil. Without hesitation or argument, we must close and guard the avenues of the soul against evil.

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the Beast, that the image of the Beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the Beast should be killed." (Rev.13:15).
Here we have an unwonted power foretold of false worship being enforced. The last of all prophecies Christians are expecting very very soon to come.  Most of us believe that it is the New World Order (NWO) who will implement the worldwide economic boycott here foretold (verse 17).
By uniting church and state, Rome became the persecuting mandevouring Beast for 1260 years. Protestant America wrote into the constitution a church separate from the state and without a Pope.
But since Protestantism has now fully accepted the "Counter-Reformation" teachings of the church of Rome, they are eager to unite and use the opportunity to enforce false dogmas held in common.
Papal Rome removed the second of the Ten Commandments in order to bring in Idolatry and images and the Roman day of the sun from sun-worship. Rome claims that the change of the day of worship and the mode of worshipping God is her "MARK" of authority in Ecclesiastical matters.  The Vatican is not just a church, but a political state as well.
God strictly forbids the unity of church and the state and calls it enmity against Him and spiritual adultery. (James 4:4; Revel.17).
While the boycott will only be the start of force, when this is not succeeding against the faithful true worshippers of God, the death penalty will follow. 
The false fire coming down from heaven (verse 13,14) is no doubt Spiritualism that is uniting Protestants and Catholics who claim to have the cloven tongues of fire that came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost.

"So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where He made the water wine.  And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, he went unto Him, and besought Him that He would come down, and heal his son: for he was at point of death.  The nobleman said unto Him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
Jesus said unto him, Go your way; your son will live.  And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
(John 4:46-53).
With heartbroken entreaty the father cries, "Sir, come down ere my child die. "  He fears that each passing moment will place his son beyond the power of the Healer.  But his faith is yet imperfect.  Desiring to lead him to perfect faith, the Savior replies, "Go your way; your son lives."
"And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way."  Assured that the death he had dreaded will not come to his son, the nobleman does not ask any questions, nor seek any explanation.  He believes.  Over and over again he repeats the words, "Your son lives".
And the power of the words of the Redeemer flashes like lightening from Cana to Capernaum, and the child is healed.  The nobleman shows his faith by not insisting on the presence of Jesus, and immediately the power of Satan is rebuked.  The dying boy feels the joy of restoration.
The watchers by the bedside mark with bated breath the conflict between life and death.  And when in an instant the burning fever disappears, they are filled with amazement.  Knowing the anxiety of the father, they go to greet him with joyful tidings.  He has only one question to ask, When did the child begin to mend?  They tell him and he was satisfied.  he believed when he turned his face homeward; now his faith is crowned with assurance.  A holy atmosphere surrounds him, and as he looked upon his son, healed of all disease, spiritual life sanctifies his soul.  He is converted.  With the simple faith of a little child he receives the great gift of the kingdom of heaven.
What a witness Christ has in this nobleman!  He had asked for the life of his son, not expecting to receive anything himself.  But he realized that a great power had taken possession of his soul.  He recognized Christ as the physician of the soul as well as the body.  Overjoyed, filled with peace and gladness, he exclaimed, To-day is salvation come to this house.  Spiritual life, with all its transforming power, was breathed into his soul, and he proclaimed in Capernaum the wonderful power of the Savior.

"For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them, even so the Son quickens whom He will.  For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son; that all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father." (John 5:21-23).

To Jesus Christ is committed the highest prerogative, that of judging.  He must receive from us the same honor that is due to God, because He is God.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1).
That this divine Word is none other than Jesus Christ is shown in verse 14: "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelled among us."  The mind of man cannot grasp the ages that are spanned in that phrase: "the Word was in the beginning". Just before the crucifixion He prayed, "And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was." (John 17:5).

Adam was given God's Sabbath (Gen.2) as the head of humanity and all nations.  But where Adam failed, Christ succeeded and took over as Victor and Lord of the Seventh-Day Sabbath (Mark 2:28) and head of all humanity and nations.

"Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus." (Hebrews 3:1).

Did you know that as a Christian, you are a 'professional'?  This scripture contains all the injunctions given to the Christian.

Christ lowered Himself as God to become man, so that we be lifted up and be called His brothers and sisters in the faith. As Jesus is the great High Priest above, so are we called His Priests to dispense salvation. (1.Pet.2:9).  We as born again Christians are to leave the milk of the word of God (the Bible) and start digesting heavy meat (Hebrews 5:12-6:5). And so with to study to show ourselves approved unto God and become a worker not need to be ashamed. (2.Tim.2:15).

To do this as the Bible enjoins, to consider Christ continually and intelligently, just as He is, will transform one into a perfect Christian, for "by beholding we become changed".

"So the Heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work He had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made."
(Genesis 2:1-3).

Now God does not tire and need physical rest, but here gave us the example which He incorporated into the Ten Commandments (Ex.20:8).  And of course it was Jesus who created and rested (John 1:1-3,14; Hebrews 1:2,10; Col.1:9; Eph.3:9) and therefore declared Himself Lord of the Seventh-Day Sabbath in the New Testament (Mark 2:28) and the God of the Old Testament (John 8:58; 5:18 cf. Exodus 3:14; Isa.43)
Unfortunately the bulk of Christianity follows Rome into disobedience of the first day of the week rather than the seventh.

The Sabbath was given to Adam, who was the representative head of the whole human race, the father of all men and nations. Acts 17:26.

"You Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm"
Isaiah 26:3 TEV

Everybody is driven by something.  What drives you?  (1) Guilt?  Guilt ridden people are manipulated by their memories.  They allow their past to control their future.  They unconsciously sabotage their own success by thinking.  "I don't deserve these blessing."  We are all products of our past, but we do not have to be prisoners of it.  God says: "Do not dwell on the past" Isa.43:18
(2) Anger and resentment?
  Instead of releasing the pain through forgiveness, do you constantly rehearse it in your mind?  Those who hurt you can only keep hurting you if you hold onto the pain through resentment.  For your own sake, learn from it and move on.

(3) Fear?
Many of our fears are the result of traumatic experience, unrealistic expectations, growing up in a high-control home or genetic predisposition. Regardless of cause, fear is a self-imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends you to be.  Rise up and move on against the weapons of faith and love, for "Well-formed love banishes fear" (1.John4:18 TM).

"You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do no expect Him." (Luke 12:40 NIV)

Chuck Swindoll writes, I once worked in a machine shop along side a fellow named George. His job was to sweep out the shavings underneath the huge lathes we were running. George loved the subject of Bible Prophecy. I remember him singing hymns as he worked, 'In the Sweet By and By' and 'When the Roll is Called up Yonder, I'll Be There'.

Late one Friday afternoon, about 10 minutes before quitting time, I looked at George and said, 'George, are you ready?' He said, 'Uh-huh.' But he was all dirty. He obviously wasn't ready. In fact, he looked like he was ready to keep on working. 'Aren't you ready to go home?' I asked. 'Yeah,' he said, 'I'm ready.' I said, 'Look at you! Man, you're not ready, you've gotta go clean up.' 'No,' he said, 'let me show you something.' Quickly he unzipped his overalls and underneath was the neatest, cleanest clothes you can imaging. All he did when the whistle blew was just unzip, step out of his overalls, walk up, punch the clock and he was gone. 'You see,' he said, 'I stay ready, to keep from getting ready - just like I'm ready for Jesus!'

Without exception, when the Second Coming of Christ is mentioned in the Bible, it's followed by a call to godly living. We've missed the whole idea, if it doesn't create in us a desire to maximize each moment and live it in the light of His coming soon.

"All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.
In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehends it not.   There was a man sent from God, whose name was John."
(John 1:3-5 NKJV).

This world has been visited by the Majesty of heaven, the Son of God.  "God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Christ came to this world as the expression of the very heart and mind and nature and character of God.
We believe Christ was begotten, not created.  He always was yet He became.  When He made all things (verse 3), he declared:  "let there be light" (Gen1:1-3) has Himself become the true light, destroying the darkness of sin, making way for the Light of salvation, so that all who believe and accept the Light may receive "power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name". (John 1:12).
The word 'became' in verse 14 is the same as the one translated 'made' in verse 3.  When the Word 'became' flesh, it was an act of creation from being with God to being "with us"
"Anyone who has seen Me, has seen the Father". (John 14:9).  And as Thomas said: "Oh my Lord and my God" when he met the resurrected Jesus.

"Let Love guide your life, for then the whole church will stay together in perfect harmony (Col.3:14 LB)

Once you discover what God intents real fellowship to be, it's easy to become discouraged by the gap between the ideal and the real in your church. Yet you must passionately love the church in spite of its imperfection.  Looking for the ideal while criticizing the real is immaturity.  Settling for the real without striving for the ideal is complacency.  Maturity is living with the tension.

People will disappoint you, but that's no excuse to stop loving and fellowshipping with them.  They are still your family even when they don't act like it, so you can't just walk out on them!

People go sour on the church for many reasons :hypocrisy, boring services, money, neglect, pettiness, legalism and the biggie: who's in control?  Because we are human, we will inevitably hurt each other.  But instead of leaving, we need to stay and work it out.  Reconciliation, not running away, is the road to stronger character and deeper fellowship.  Anyway, there's no perfect church to escape to.  The sooner you give up the idea that a church must be perfect in order to love it, the sooner you'll quit pretending and start admitting that we're all seriously in need of grace.  Every church should hang out a sign that reads: No perfect people need apply: This church is only for those who admit they are sinners, need grace and want to grow.

The truth is, if God joins you to a church, only God should 'un-join' you from it.
