I can say 100% the following, I hope many read this and stop looking at every thing that comes out as a truth.
The world will not end in 2015-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
The world will not end in 2016-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
The world will not end in 2017-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
The world will not end in 2018-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
The world will not end in 2019-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
The world will not end in 2020-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
The world will not end in 2021-Why? The Antichrist has not yet come.
You may be saying, what if the Antichrist comes at the end of year, or the start of 2016 than what, it is the same,the seven years I posted will still be a truth, only difference is you would add more years on to this, but as it is, it is 100% correct. If the Antichrist came next month , that would be almost end of 2015, and thus the last seven would be the year, if not, as said, keep waiting, looking to the lord, and not looking for the Antichrist or an E.L.E. Event, we do not have too, the lord has our back. The lord knows who is true people are, and who they will be, Free Will-Predestination, it is in our N.T.
Now a look at Jer.
The coming captivity to the West is not something we want to even think of, but we must. The best way to overcome in these days is to stay focused on the lord and his word. The text from Jer ch 29, is a prophecy to the ones in captivity.
Some are in captivity today, around the world Christians are being killed, in the West they are being harassed and having all the Government wants pushed by their agenda down our throats.
The fact is these are the new Babylonian Captors and the coming multi-Nation army invasion , very soon. My thoughts, and what the lord has been saying, may read like more of the same, it is in a way, the same principles must be taught often and as a reminder.
Christians under Martial law the posts Pt 1 and 2, are close to this message. Captivity, things to come, things that will not come in September. Many have been declaring this coming Judgment, watchmen and women, mostly women of late, as the watchmen for the most, are in false doctrine, and living life while in sin, and thinking all is well.
Last few hours the lord said to me, "Tell them the prophecy given should not bring a sign of relief, or letting up in anyway, it is a short space, a little window, do not be fooled as the False prophets in our Chapter are spoken of, later in the chapter we read of these, and esp. one, by name.
If you know the basic prophetic time line you know the world can not end in 2016,16 etc., we have a minimum of 7 years starting this year if the tribulation were to start. I know in my soul we are not as close to the seven year tribulation as most think, history, things not in order yet. Example, Greece; is a world known super power of goods and money, look at Greece today, I rest my case on that point, and that is no little point to see in Daniel chapter 9. Stay steady, think for the best, plan for the worse, you have nothing to loose.
I had a young man my daughter knows, he gave us some old things, a case of sponges with scrubby, great to use in off grind sanitation. Boxes of the T.P. and Hand towel, the kind you see in a gas station or public place, fine that is our T.P. The person asked why felt the T.P.; was so big a deal, can anyone say open door, I took the chance to speak of the gospel and things to come, Judgment and preparedness, first salvation.
These kind of things will keep happening, as the mission can not ever get all it would dream of, later Bartering for zeer pots, and seed exchange, solar charging of units. Bartering will be dangerous soon, bandits will know what you have put aside, but they can not invade unless the lord allows it, it is his call, the when, where, how, all in his hands. The way to think is, supernatural 90% and 10% natural, (needs and things).
Got a little of topic.
We learn from this chapter about the captivity, false prophetic words, false ministers, still being reached out to so they would endure the captivity. This chapter gives us as well, great hope, verses we all know well, but in this same message, truly the word is alive and active.
Jer 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.
Jer 29:9 For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.
Jer 29:24 Thus shalt thou also speak to Shemaiah the Nehelamite, saying,
Jer 29:25 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, Because thou hast sent letters in thy name unto all the people that are at Jerusalem, and to Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, and to all the priests, saying,
Jer 29:26 The LORD hath made thee priest in the stead of Jehoiada the priest, that ye should be officers in the house of the LORD, for every man that is mad, and maketh himself a prophet, that thou shouldest put him in prison, and in the stocks.
Jer 29:27 Now therefore why hast thou not reproved Jeremiah of Anathoth, which maketh himself a prophet to you?
Jer 29:28 For therefore he sent unto us in Babylon, saying, This captivity is long: build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
Jer 29:29 And Zephaniah the priest read this letter in the ears of Jeremiah the prophet.
Jer 29:30 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
Jer 29:31 Send to all them of the captivity, saying, Thus saith the LORD concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite; Because that Shemaiah hath prophesied unto you, and I sent him not, and he caused you to trust in a lie:
Jer 29:32 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a man to dwell among this people; neither shall he behold the good that I will do for my people, saith the LORD; because he hath taught rebellion against the LORD.
This plainly teaches us it is OK to use a name, or ministry, when doing apologetics, soul wining, beating off the wolves in sheep's clothing. Many have had a hard time with Christians using a name, I have exhausted my messages on this point, but once again we see a truth, rebuke, and a name to go with it, his name basically means Dream or Dreamer. False dreamers, false. If you do not heed the masses you will do yourself a favor.
Jer 29:1 Now these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem unto the residue of the elders which were carried away captives, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon;
Jer 29:2 (After that Jeconiah the king, and the queen, and the eunuchs, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, and the carpenters, and the smiths, were departed from Jerusalem;)
Jer 29:3 By the hand of Elasah the son of Shaphan, and Gemariah the son of Hilkiah, (whom Zedekiah king of Judah sent unto Babylon to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon) saying,
Jer 29:4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon;
Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,.... For the letter was written by the order of the Lord, was endited by him, and was sent in his name, the prophet was only his amanuensis; and the titles which the Lord here takes are worthy of notice: "the Lord of hosts": of the armies above and below, that does according to his pleasure in heaven and in earth, with whom nothing is impossible; who could easily destroy the enemies of his people, and deliver them, either immediately by his power, or mediately by means of armies on earth, whom he could assemble, and send at pleasure; or by legions of angels at his command: "the God of Israel"; their covenant God; who still continued to be so, notwithstanding their sins and transgressions, and though in captivity in a foreign land; and a good him this, to preserve them from the idolatry of the country they were in, and to observe unto them that he only was to be worshipped by them:
unto all that are carried away captives: or, "to all of the captivity"; or, "to the whole captivity" (r); high and low, rich and poor; this letter was an interesting one to them all:
whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; for though their sins and iniquities were the moving, meritorious, and procuring causes of their captivity; and Nebuchadnezzar and his army the instruments; yet God was the efficient cause: the Chaldeans could never have carried them captive, if the Lord had not willed it, or had not done it by them; for there is no "evil of this kind in a city, and the Lord hath not done it", Amo_3:6.
I want to end with the parts of Chapter 29 that all true belivers can look to, stand on, and hope in.
Jer 29:5 Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;
Jer 29:6 Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished.
Jer 29:7 And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.
Jer 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jer 29:12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Note: Verses 5 and 6 clearly speak of, what to do while in captivity, we can and will, have children, grow food, and increase the gospel to all, one heart at a time.
