Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

JOHN Chapter 8 - The Pharisees Try To Trap Jesus

The Pharisees Try To Trap Jesus

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2 At dawn He appeared again in the Temple Courts,
Where all the people gathered around Him,
And He sat down to teach them.

3 The Teachers of the Law and the Pharisees
Brought in a woman caught in Adultery.
They made her stand before the group
4 And said to Jesus, 'Teacher,
This woman was caught in the Act of Adultery.
5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women.
Now what do you say?'

6 They were using this question as a Trap,
In order to have a Basis for Accusing Him.

But Jesus bent down
And started to write on the ground with His finger.
7 When they kept on questioning Him,
He straightened up and said to them,

'If any one of you is without Sin,
Let him be the first to throw a stone at her.'

8 Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time,
The older ones first, until only Jesus was left,
With the woman still standing there.
10 Jesus straightened up and asked her,
'Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?'

11 'No one sir,' she said.
'Then neither do I condemn you,' Jesus declared.
'GO NOW AND LEAVE YOUR LIFE OF SIN.'

The Validity Of Jesus' Testimony

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said,
I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
WHOEVER FOLLOWS ME WILL NEVER WALK IN DARKNESS,
BUT WILL HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE.

13 The Pharisees challenged Him,
'Here You are, appearing as Your own witness;
Your Testimony is Not Valid.'

14 Jesus answered, '
Even if I Testify on My own behalf,
My Testimony is Valid.'
For I know where I came from and where I am going.
But you have No Idea where I came from and where I am going.

15 You judge by human standards;
I pass judgment on no one.
16 But if I do judge, My decisions are Right,
Because I am not alone.
I STAND WITH THE FATHER WHO SENT ME.

17 In your own Law it is written
That the Testimony of two men is Valid.
18 I am One Who Testifies for My self;
My other Witness is the One Who sent Me—the Father.'

19 Then they asked Him, 'Where is Your Father?'

'You do not know Me or My Father,' Jesus replied.
'If you knew Me, you would know My Father also.'
20 He spoke these words while teaching in the Temple area
Near the place where the offerings were put.
Yet no one seized Him, because His time had no yet come.

21 Once more Jesus said to them,
I am going away, and you will look for Me,
AND YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SIN.
Where I go, you cannot come.'

22 This made the Jews ask,
'Will he kill Himself?
Is that why He says,
'Where I go, you cannot come'?'

23 But he continued,
'YOU ARE FROM BELOW; I AM FROM ABOVE.
YOU ARE OF THIS WORLD; I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD.
24 I told you that you would Die in your Sins;
If you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be,
YOU WILL INDEED DIE IN YOUR SINS.'

25 'Who are you?' they asked.
'Just what I have been claiming all along,' Jesus replied.
26 I have much to say in Judgment of you.
But He Who sent Me is Reliable,
AND WHAT I HAVE HEARD FROM HIM I TELL THE WORLD.'

27 They did not understand
That He was telling them about His Father.
28 So Jesus said, 'When you have lifted up the Son of Man,
Then you will know who I am and that I do nothing on My own
But speak just what the Father has taught Me.

29 THE ONE WHO SENT ME IS WITH ME;
He has not left Me alone,
For I always do what pleases Him.'
30 Even as He spoke, many put their Faith in Him.

The Children Of Abraham

31 To the Jews who had Believed Him, Jesus said,
'IF you Hold to My Teaching, you are Really My Disciples.

32 THEN YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH,
AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.'

33 They answered Him,
'We are Abraham's Descendants
And have never been slaves of anyone.
How can you say that we shall be Set Free?'

34 Jesus replied,
'I tell you the Truth,
Everyone who Sins is a Slave to Sin.

35 Now a Slave has no Permanent Place in the Family,
But a Son belongs to it Forever.
36 So IF the Son Set you Free,
You will be Free Indeed.

37 I know you are Abraham's Descendants.
Yet you are ready to Kill Me,
BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO ROOM FOR MY WORD.

38 I AM TELLING YOU 
WHAT I HAVE SEEN IN MY FATHER'S PRESENCE,
AND YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD FROM YOUR FATHER.'

39 'Abraham is our Father,' they answered.

'IF you were Abraham's Children,' Jesus said
'You would do the things Abraham did.

40 AS IT IS, YOU ARE DETERMINED TO KILL ME,
A MAN WHO HAS TOLD YOU THE TRUTH
THAT I HEARD FROM GOD.
Abraham did not do such things.

41 YOU ARE DOING THE THINGS YOUR OWN FATHER DOES.'

'We are not Illegitimate Children,' they Protested,
'The only Father we have is God Himself.'

The Children Of The Devil

42 Jesus said to them,
'IF GOD WERE YOUR FATHER,
YOU WOULD LOVE ME,
For I came from God and now am here.
I have not come on My own; but He Sent Me.

43 WHY IS MY LANGUAGE NOT CLEAR TO YOU?
Because you are unable to hear what I say.

44 YOU BELONG TO YOUR FATHER, THE DEVIL,
And you want to carry out your father's Desire.

HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING,
NOT HOLDING TO THE TRUTH,
FOR THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM.

WHEN HE LIES, HE SPEAKS HIS NATIVE LANGUAGE,
FOR HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF LIES.

45 Yet because I Tell the Truth, you do not believe Me!

46 CAN ANY OF YOU PROVE ME GUILTY OF SIN?

47 HE WHO BELONGS TO GOD HEARS WHAT GOD SAYS.
The reason you do not hear Me
IS THAT YOU DO NOT BELONG TO GOD.'

The Claims Of Jesus About Himself

48 The Jews answered Him,
'Aren't we right in saying that You are as Samaritan
And demon possessed?'

49 'I am not possessed by a demon,' said Jesus,
'But I honor My Father and you dishonor Me.
50 I am not seeking Glory for My self;
But there is One Who seeks it,
And He is the Judge.

51 I TELL YOU THE TRUTH,
IF A MAN KEEPS MY WORD,
HE WILL NEVER SEE DEATH.'

52 At this the Jews exclaimed,
'Now we know that You are demon-possessed!
Abraham died and so did the Prophets,
Yet You say that if a man keeps Your Word,
He will never taste Death.

53 ARE YOU GREATER THAN OUR FATHER ABRAHAM?
He died, and so did the Prophets.
Who do You think You are?

Jesus replied, 'If I Glorify Myself, My Glory means nothing.
My Father, Whom you claim as your God,
Is the One Who Glorifies Me.
55 Though you do not know Him, I know Him.
If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you,
BUT I DO KNOW HIM AND KEEP HIS WORD.

56 YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM REJOICED
AT THE THOUGH OF SEEING MY DAY;
HE SAW IT AND WAS GLAD.'

57 'You are not yet fifty years old,' the Jews said to Him,
'And You have seen Abraham!'

58'I TELL YOU THE TRUTH,'
Jesus answered,
'BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS BORN, I AM!'

59 At this, they picked up stones to stone Him,
But Jesus hid Himself,
Slipping away from the Temple grounds.
(John 8)
