The Bible tells us that -
"... we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives." (Phil. 3:20)
And what a wonderful, breathtaking place heaven is. The Bible says:
"... Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." (1 Cor. 2:9)
But if it is a real place, where is it?
Whenever you ask a child, "Where is heaven?" they will usually point straight up. Twelve hours later if they were still pointing upward, they would be pointing in a totally different direction. Because the earth is turning on its axis constantly, the direction (when you point upward) is constantly changing. So then, where is heaven?
It appears from a study of the Scriptures that heaven is located in the north in our universe, and that is precisely why, when the priests offered sacrifices in the Old Testament, they would offer them northward toward the Lord. Notice what Moses said in Leviticus 1:11:
"And he shall kill the sacrifice on the side of the altar northward before the Lord: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar."
The implication is clear: the Lord's throne is in the north. "Northward before the Lord," says God's Word.
North is always the same direction from this planet no matter what time of day. If you were to point to the north in the morning, twelve hours later you would still be pointing in the same direction. No matter where the earth is in its orbit about the sun, north is always the same direction in relationship to the earth. So no matter what time of day or what time of year, north is always the same direction.
Moreover, the Bible suggests that salvation comes from the north. In Psalms 75:6 we read,
"For salvation cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south."
Therefore, it must come from the north since it is the only choice left.
Thirty-five hundred years ago in the book of Job in the Old Testament, God gave us an amazing. Job 26:7 says,
"... stretcheth out the north over the empty place."
Regarding the exact location of heaven, Sarah Knapton, the Science Editor for Britain's Daily Telegraph, reports that astronomers have now discovered a curious empty section which is missing around 10,000 galaxies - a super void, which is 1.8 billion light-years across. István Szapudi of the University of Hawaii at Manoa described the object as possibly "the largest individual system ever identified by humanity." The Scriptures tell us that beyond this void is where heaven is.
Lucifer (Satan) in his rebellion (ie., when he tried to overthrow God in "eternity past") spoke of this void in the north. Isaiah 14:13 tells us,
"For thou [Satan] hast said in thine heart, I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the side of the north."
This undoubtedly refers to this empty space in the north where there are no stars.
Another fascinating passage of Scripture regarding the place where God's throne is, is found in Psalms 48:1-2:
"Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King."
We believers have a home in heaven waiting for us. Jesus tells us,
"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also." (John 14:2, 3)
And it goes on to say,
"Set your minds on things above [ie., in heaven], not on earthly things." (Col 3:2)
But that is exactly what American Christians are NOT doing. Instead, their minds are set on the earth and earthly things, reducing themselves in the process to the status of apostates.
It is precisely because American Christians are apostate (ie., that they have set their minds on things of this world) that they have become such easy targets for the DECEPTION that Trump is purveying to them. And, insofar as Trump's supposed Christianity is concerned , there can be no honest question that Donald Trump is NOT a Christian. Trump himself betrayed this truth when moderator Frank Luntz once asked him whether he had ever asked God for forgiveness for his sins. Trump replied:
"No! I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don't bring God into that picture. I don't."
The truth is, however, one cannot be a REAL Christian if he says he has no need to repent.
Yes, God's forgiveness is available to anyone who would appeal to his mercy, but that appeal MUST include an acknowledgement of one's sins; but this is such an inconvenient FACT for Christians who desperately want to redeem America as God's great redeemer nation; after all, as Jerry Falwell, Jr. said -
"All these things were years ago."
Then there is Tony Perkins who told Politico that Christians should give Trump a "mulligan" (ie., a "do over") as to the very real nature of Trump's character because he champions an evangelical agenda.
Perkins knows about Stormy Daniels, the porn actress who claimed in a 2011 interview that she had sex with Trump four months AFTER his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron. Perkins knows of the reports that Daniels (real name: Stephanie Clifford) was paid off to keep the affair quiet in the waning weeks of the 2016 election. He knows about the cursing, the lewdness and the litany of questionable behavior over the past year of Trump's life, or the 70 years that came before it.
Jesus said -
"By their fruit you will recognize them [ie., the enemies of Christ]. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit."(Matthew 7:17)
Yet today the nation's evangelical leaders are telling their parishioners to take a "magic marker" and black out (redact) Matthew 7:17 and other similar verses.
While most American Christians are unable to see where their real home is, Billy Graham understood where his citizenship was. Shortly before he passed on, he told his supporters,
"Some day you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God. My home is in Heaven. I'm just traveling through this world."
Brothers and sisters, heaven is a REAL place; it has NOTHING to do with this present earth. Keep your eyes fixed on this and you will escape the deception of the antiChrist in these last days. Do not be drawn into the fight of establishing America as God's great Redeemer Nation.
America is not heaven; it is BABYLON THE GREAT, THE GREAT ENEMY OF GOD and if you fail to understand this, SATAN will eventually overtake you and will establish in HATRED as the governing force in your heart - hatred against blacks, hatred against Hispanics, hatred against everything.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, remember the words of Jesus,
"My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest ... But my kingdom is from another place." (John 18:36)
God bless all of you,
In His love,
We ask you to bear in mind what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts? We especially need your support as a result of my wife's perilous condition in connection with her failing heart; also my failing health as a result of an unexplained and bizarre illness which placed me into a coma for nine days last year. I truly believe that this was an attack on me by Satan; I was rescued only by the direct intervention of God so that I could continue to warn Christians concerning the "end of days" and the appearance of Trump as the antiChrist.
God bless you all.
In HIS Love,
WE URGE YOU TO TAKE A STAND AND PUBLICALLY WITNESS AGAINST THE CHURCH'S ALMOST UNREASONING SUPPORT OF DONALD TRUMP. [PLEASE SEE OUR ARTICLE, "TRUMP AS THE ANTI-CHRIST."]
SPEAK OUT (ie., WITNESS) AGAINST THE DECEPTION OF THE FALSE PROPHETS OF TODAY'S CHURCH LIKE JOHN HAGEE.
The WHITE ROSE SOCIETY was a group formed by students Hans and Sophie Scholl and a band of Christian friends and professors. Their common goal was to stand against the Nazi regime that was terrorizing their country in the early 1940's, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY TO DECLARE THAT CHRIST WAS THE SUPREME POWER AND NOT ADOLPH HITLER. They secretly wrote and printed leaflets behind a church organ. They would then take as many as 2000 of them at a time and randomly distribute this bold writing in cities such as Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Vienna, Frieburg, Saarbreuken and Mannheim. As a result of taking part in these activities, seven of its members were executed between February 1943 and October 1944.
THE QUESTION HERE, AS IT WAS FOR SOPHIE AND HANS SCHOLL IS THIS: DO YOU FEAR MORE THE WRATH OF MAN OR THE WRATH OF GOD??
Finally, we urge you to download our flyers and pass them out; nail them to trees, lamp-posts; place them on cars, in windows; hand them to your neighbors and friends, etc. Download flyers to be passed out to friends and neighbors and pinned on trees, in windows, on church bulletin boards, etc.
In the light of all that's been happening recently - and we speak here of the Trump presidency, Islamic terrorism, the new anti-Semitism directed against both Jews and the Jewish state (Israel), the growing storm clouds over the Middle east which are harbingers of the coming Gog / Magog War, and that my wife and I can recover fully from our illnesses so that the work of the ministry can continue with vigor. In connection with the work of the ministry, we DESPERATELY need your financial help if we are to continue on with the work God has given us. The help you send will not accrue to any single individual, but will be directed to the effort of the ministry to bring TRUTH to you that you cannot receive anywhere else.
We ask you to bear in mind what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts.
