Mat 10.28 +

Mat 10.28

“…Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:

but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul & body in hell.”


“God is to human souls

what light is to the world.”

– Adam Clarke


The World Is Coming to an End. I don’t refer to a recent “virus” – too many people were too concerned about it. I refer to Revelation – too few are concerned about the teachings of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ…” It’s even been taught that everything after Rev 3 is in the future. You shouldn’t blindly accept this theory. The words “…things which must shortly come to pass…”(Rev 1.1) doesn’t fully fit with it. There’s a lot of material in ch.4 – 22 & we may be living in one of those chapters. – 5/10/20


“Let – the key word in Christianity.”

– Ray Chamberlain



A purchase was made in a town that had class.

The house had a decent and well-shaded plot.

How “lucky” they were to have found it at last,

And soon it was handsomely bought.


His missus was pleased, “The location is great.”

Amenities? Yes!  There had flowed thru her thought;

A vision of high entertainment of late,

T’was something her soul had long sought.


His daughters were also in love with the place,

(Though daily the four of them selfishly fought.)

They loved the attention; they loved the fast pace,

Incredibly more than they ought.


Did this town have action? At night it was “wired!”

(That – long before current men knew the term “watt.”)

Adulteries and shows, fornications were hired.

The city was full of such rot.


The house is so perfect, so very “upscale;”

The garden, the orchard, the gold apricot.

But is it not time to consider a sale?

A single look shows such a blot.


Oh, see how the married girls all have become.

Each husband is drinking or is a sad sot.

The two who remain, are unmarried at home.

They’ll likely get, just what “sis” got.


But mom has her Garden Club, daughters have peers,

And dad has a seat at the city’s prime “slot.”

They’ve each gotten used to sin’s grime – without fears.

Besides, who would buy their big yacht?


Two angels appeared in the evening, like men.

The man, wife, and daughters reverted (as taught).

They offered protection from Sodom’s sad sin,

But leaving there seemed a “long shot.”


“My city, so fair on the plains of my dream,

“My Sodom will burn? Get exceedingly hot?”

The son-in-laws doubt him, “Things are what they seem”

“Your daughters will stay. They’ll go not!”


Reluctant to flee, yet forbidden to stay;

So closely aligned there, so tight was the knot.

They waited, they stalled, “Was there no other way.”

Must they flee their loved “Camelot”?


So pulled out by angels – reluctant to start,

Reluctant to leave her young daughter’s new “tot,”

The mother so slowly, but surely lost heart,

And turned – That’s as far as she got.


The city soon burned, scorched by heaven’s own fire.

Position and influence, mansion; were shot.

Hot brimstone consumed all of one man’s desire,

Sulfuric clouds reigned o’er the spot.


“Roll back in your journey, swift suns of my life.”

“Return my lost son-in-laws, children, and wife.”

“I give you my Sodom, so foolishly sought –”

“I, Lot, lost a lot – on that lot.”

The anti-christ will be religious; he’ll want you to see him as “christ.” The deceived world may wear his “inking” with pride, as a badge of honor. They may try to make you (ones without the “mark”) embarrassed that you don’t have one. They may see antichrist as “saving the earth” & you as a traitor, for not supporting him. *Warning* If you can’t stand on the job, in the family, even in the church, now when there’s a degree of freedom, how will you stand when the pressure of the MARK is pressed on you? – 5/10/20


“It is when there is no revival that it is difficult to get men to enter the ministry

or to go to the mission field…”

– Oswald J Smith


Rev 13.16

“…he causeth all, both small & great, rich & poor, free & bond

to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:”


You shouldn’t spend too much time “figuring out” who the anti-christ is. (You could devote months conjecturing who he is, & even be right – but fail to be wholly right with Jesus & therefore so weak you’d take the mark.) Be alert to “trial runs” (if we have such). Be aware of preparatory steps & avoid all you can. The BEST way to be prepared for Biblical future is be saved & Spirit-filled now. “The Lord is my helper & I will not fear what man shall do unto me” (Heb 13.6). – 5/10/20


“God’s Word contains the best evidence

of its own inspiration.”

– J Hudson Taylor
