<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3">As we look at the evil in this sin-sick world it is easy to see why non-believers say that God cannot be a God of love. It&#39;s hard to find words to describe how low mankind has sunk and, despite all the empty talk, things are only going to get worse until Jesus returns. God is allowing the world to continue on its sinful free-fall into greater filth, violence and apostasy. However, there is a limit as </font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><i><span style="text-decoration: none">"He has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed </span></i></font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><span style="font-style: normal"><span style="text-decoration: none">[that is, Jesus]</span></span></font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><i><span style="text-decoration: none">"</span></i></font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><span style="text-decoration: none"> (Acts 17:31).

<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><span style="text-decoration: none">God&#39;s love is not a dizzy-headed, fuzzy feeling that fades away after a honeymoon period. His love is an unchanging, solid and selfless commitment. For over three years Jesus walked towards the cross knowing the awful agony that He would soon endure. </span></font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3">On the night before He was crucified, He was in such anguish that, while praying, </font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><i>"his sweat was like drops of blood"</i></font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"> (Luke 22:44).

<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3">On the way to the cross, after being whipped and beaten, Jesus was more concerned about the women weeping for Him than for Himself (Luke 23:27-31).</font></font></font></p>

<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3">On the cross, in awful agony, He selflessly continued to think of others. </font></font></font></p>

<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3">Through all of this, God watched Jesus&#39; agony and Isa. 53:10 tells us that it pleased God to allow His Son to suffer for us. We sinned against God and Jesus paid the penalty of death for us.

<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3">The Prodigal Son is a perfect example of God&#39;s patient love and discipline. This young man arrogantly asked for his inheritance while his father was alive and then went off to waste the money in wild living. When his money was gone, he ended up feeding pigs that were eating better than he was. These conditions caused him come to his senses and repent so he went back home hoping to work for his father as a slave. To his surprise, his father saw him in the distance and ran to welcome him home as his son, not as a slave. This parable is given to tell us how our heavenly Father controls our circumstances and emotions to bring us to repentance whenever we go off the path of holiness. God is extremely patient and loving toward us. </font></font></font><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman, serif"><font size="3"><span style="font-weight: normal">Psa. 100:5 says,</span></font></font></font></p>

<p>mikeoverson.multiply.com/video My Bible notes at Multiply are only until they will discontinue it like Friendfeed did, (nice going you evil atheists, see pages 165 and 210). Because I, (Mike Overson), had a calling&#160; to represent Jesus&#39; return,&#160; (an awkward job but somebody had to do it), I felt obligated to make a note on every part of the Bible that I received as a sign. It&#39;s not finished yet but I thought I&#39;d better post what I have in case I die a premature death. The latest update on 12-22-12 is on page 211, previous updates on 11-23-12 are on pages 33 to 46 and 188 to 211. After making these updates I&#39;m convinced that Multiply is making a very evil mistake, (= a siren at 1148am which confirms it because it means "I can&#39;t believe how cold you are"). The only way I know of to stop Multiply in a case like this is by PRAYER, (see pages 33 and 115 or my class L122 here at Multiply or at Vimeo), so I&#39;m praying that God will rescue social networking at Multipy and I hope others will to. latest Bible notes on 12-22-12 @ page 211.zip At Multiply: Download the attached Bible notes zip file and open it in text edit and instead of printing it click Preview for the best view of these notes. (I make these instructions idiot proof in case anyone is as dumb at computers as I am.)</p>

<p>&#160; The Two Wolves "I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life." (Deu. 30:19) &#160; Whenever someone repents and accepts Jesus as Lord of their life, the Holy Spirit comes to live within them and, from that point on, a spiritual battle exists between their sinful nature and the Holy Spirit. Gal. 5:17 describes this battle: "For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want." Our sinful nature is a powerful force which will continue to rule our lives unless we submit to the Spirit just as Gal. 5:16 tells us, "live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature." The following parable describes the battle within us: &#160; An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life... "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. &#160; One wolf is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego. &#160; The other wolf is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. &#160; This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too." &#160; The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" &#160; The old chief simply replied, "The one you feed." (Author Unknown) &#160; This parable truly describes the spiritual battle every Christian faces. Which wolf are you feeding? Rom. 8:13 also tells us that there are two ways we can live: "if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live." 1) You can feed the evil wolf and live according to your sinful nature and die or 2) You can feed the good wolf and through the Spirit put to death the misdeeds of the body and live. &#160; You need to choose wisely as only "those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God" (Rom. 8:14). Choose life and through the power of the Holy Spirit put to death the misdeeds of the body so that you may inherit eternal life. &#160; This article can be downloaded as a PDF or an MP3 from - http://www.christianissues.biz/downloads.html &#160; Mick Alexander Email: leeandmick@gmail.com Website: www.ChristianIssues.biz &#160; &#160;</p>

<p><b><font size="2">

<p>Dear Mom &amp; Dad,</p>

<p>This is the first chance I had to write to you. I&#39;m sorry if I made you worry. I want you to know that all is well and I arrived safe and sound at Camp Heaven. Everything around me is more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. The trip was short. I got here just after I closed my eyes and fell asleep. It was as if no time had past at all. I miss you so very much. I was told to tell you it wasn&#39;t goodbye because I would be seeing you soon. Please mention this letter to all my relatives, friends at home, and at school. I arrived standing before a huge gate. A Beautiful Angel was there waiting to greet me; he had very large wide wings protruding from his shoulders and was wearing a whiter than snow robe with a golden sash around his waste. A halo circled above his head; his whole being glowed as bright as the sun. I was able to see his face; it was unlike any face I had ever seen before...perfect, soft, and gentle. He greeted me with a loving smile. I asked him who he was; he answered with a low echoy voice: "My name is Gabriel. I am an Archangel and Messenger of God." I could hardly believe what I was seeing: a real live Angel! He extended his arms to me; I rushed and fell right into them. He embraced and held me tight, then said: "Welcome home Michael." While in his arms I was overcome with a profound love, peace, and joy which encompassed my whole body unlike anything I had ever experienced before. Mom and Dad, don&#39;t feel bad but the love I felt was a thousand times stronger than anything I ever experienced before. He then said: "Come Michael, all your brothers and sisters are eager to see and greet you. Grab on to my cloak." We traveled through the air for a short while and landed on this huge outdoor arena that looked like a King&#39;s Palace all shiny and bright. A large group of men, women, and children had gathered. There were all kinds of animals milling around...doggies too. I was thrilled to see doggies. I saw lots of Black Labs, just like our Smoky Bear. Gabriel put his arm around my shoulder and announced: "Children, this is your new brother Michael; welcome him home!" Everyone cheered and applauded louder than a crowd at a sports stadium; they all came to greet me and gave me lots of hugs and kisses. I felt like a Super Star! Gabriel then said: "OK, enough kissing and hugging, it&#39;s time to celebrate!" I started hearing the sound of music playing but didn&#39;t know where it was coming from. I looked up; descending from the sky was an army of Celestial Angels playing the most beautiful and enchanting music I had ever heard. Each of them had different instruments: trumpets, harps, bells, and others instruments I had never heard or seen before. The music permeated the entire palace. Then, all of a sudden, I see this gigantic table and chairs appear in the center of the palace that glistened like diamonds. The table was longer than a football field and was filled with a huge assortment of food and treats. I never saw such a display of food on one table before. Gabriel, seated at the head table stood, lifted his wine glass high and said: "Children, I hereby propose a toast to welcome the arrival of God&#39;s new adopted son, our new brother, and new addition to The Family of God, Michael! The crowd lifted their glasses and shouted: "Here! Here!" and sipped the wine. The Angels started playing a tremendous joyous sounding song. Everyone started shouting and repeating: "Welcome Home Michael! Welcome Home! Michael!" Gabriel then said: "Hallelujah! It&#39;s time to eat, drink, and be merry! Let the celebration and feast begin!" Mom and Dad, it&#39;s more wonderful here than words can express! Although I miss you, Dad, and all my friends very much, please know that I am as happy as I ever could possibly have imagined. It&#39;s like an everlasting party: Everyone dancing, laughing, filled with joy, and truly showing their love and concern toward one another. Gabriel told me this is to be my New Home and Family. I can stay here forever and never have to worry again about getting sick, growing old, or have bad things happen. Please be well. Take care of yourself and above all don&#39;t worry. It&#39;s just like when you sent me away to those other camps for the summer, except this camp is the greastest one of them all and I won&#39;t ever have to leave. I am in Paradise and here is where I was meant to be, where I belong, and where I will live in love forever and ever! Well, I gotta go now; they&#39;re calling my name to join in on another exciting outdoor game. I&#39;ll try to write again soon but it&#39;s hard to stop from all the fun I&#39;m having. I love you both so very much!</p>

By taking what was not yet due to him, and living an ungodly life, he abused God&#39;s laws and showed a total lack of love for those close to him. In Jewish society, these actions were extremely shameful and punishable by death (Deu. 21:18-21). Fortunately, like our heavenly Father, his father was full of love and accepted him back when he repented. This young man is a good example of what we should not do.</span></font></font></p>

THE NEW REVELATION is a body of works containing the writings of two men from the XIX-Th Century: Austrian Jakob Lorber and German Gottfried Mayerhofer. Not knowing each other personally, these two men presented themselves as “humble scribes of the Lord”, affirming that all their writings were the fruit of receiving a mysterious inner Word, an interior dictation coming directly from Jesus Christ, that only they could hear. However, the result of their work is an incredible amount of pages (approx. 10000 to Lorber and another few thousands to Mayerhofer), grouped in books which present a vast picture of the spiritual and material world and creation, the life of Christ on earth (“The Great Gospel of John”, 11 volumes in German and “The Childhood of Jesus”), the most important spiritual facts from the history of the first men, life after death depictions, etc.

These extraordinary teachings far surpass everything that philosophy or religion or even science proposed as an answer to the greatest questions of human existence; part of them are translated in many languages and part can be found free on the Internet. In them we can find spiritual explanations and interpretations that confirm and complete the most important parts of the Old and New Testament and also incredible prophecies and scientific predictions (see, for example,noulsite.new-revelation.ro/index.php?opt... ) and j-lorber.de/kee/0-eggen.htm.

Our days, although many other minor mystics revelations are treated with a lot of respect and attention in the theological world, although we live in a time when all kind of “shocking” archaeological discoveries or fictional literature which seem to unravel the deepest mysteries of Christianity are quickly popularized and acclaimed… the New Revelation still lies, after almost 150 years, totally unrecognized by all earthly institution and authority as something worthy to be studied and understood.

Reading the New Revelation, one can clearly understand the human nature, its liberty, the influence of sin on it, and so, can obtain not only a clear perspective of the historical development of mankind’s evolution, but also a correct representation of the things that God expect us to do for ourselves and, most of all, for our brothers in need.


My belief is that a true believer in Christ should, in our days more than ever, keep searching for His wisdom - the real spiritual truths that can indeed nourish and develop the true love for God and neighbor.

There are many proofs for the authenticity of the New Revelation considering the way it was conceived (manuscripts are available at the Lorber Verlag Publishing House in Germany), the logic and perfect consistence of all books, the historical data and the amazing accomplished predictions… so there are many things that can charm and convince an open and rational mind. But I think that the real core of these texts, which is the purest and greatest love only a loving heart can recognize and validate… and I have the greatest hopes that a heart already touched by the divine spirit will be able to embrace it immediately.

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In Revelation 21:5 we see the Lord creating all things [see Strongs # 3956, pas/panta] new.  And we see in verse 4 that he ends all sorrow and every tear, as well as death.  My God is a God that will eventually end all sin and suffering.  My God will eventually subdue everything to himself (Philippians 3:21) and complete everything...(Colossians 1:20)..  With the highest possible Lord this has to be the eventual state of things at the end of time, as we know it.   With the above in mind why would anyone hold to a view that says 90 percent, or more, of people, will be roasting in an endless "hell"?  God will have a clean universe eventually with no prisons or sinners.  This has to be so if God takes away all tears and sorrow.  If God torments a person for eternity then they are not reconciled!  Sorry but the traditional view is not tenable or respectable at all!   It will do no good for those that hold to the traditional view to quote Revelation 14:11 or Luke 16 (Richman and Lazarus)..for the word "eternal" is not actually in the Greek text of the first, and in Luke 16 we see a parable about a change in fortunes.  The Richman is Judah, one of 6 sons of Leah, and the poor man is Abrahams faithful steward Eliezer (Genesis 24). People need to focus on the clear verses in scripture rather than verses that are less clear.   Romans 6:23 plainly tells us that the wages of sin is DEATH (not life in torment), and that the believers get the highest life..Yeshua affirmed this in many ways.  He indicated that evil ones might be destroyed in Gehenna (Matthew 10:28)..  This is the theme through all Bible history, starting with Adam, and his return to dust and down through time.  Yeshua came and took the exact penalty of death.  He carried the sins of all the world yet did not burn in hell even a week.  Why do some teach that the unsaved sinners will suffer more than Yeshua, the Messiah did.  This is actually an insult to Christ..

  As stated above..God will eventually end all sorrow and make all things perfect.  Peace and completeness (divine Shalom) will prevail in the end of time.  There is a special plan of the Lord being worked out right now. God is sovereign and anything that happens God has allowed to happen (good and bad things).  God can make good out of bad things.  I have taught that the best possible world is one in which sin and suffering exist for a season.  This way all things can be completed.. Amen..

Secondly, Matt. 24 tells us that there will be earthquakes, famines and wars and we see plenty of that today. Thirdly, 2 Thess. 2:3 tells us there will be a great apostasy within the church. We see this today in the doctrinal compromise found in the Ecumenical Movement, the Emerging Church and the general trend towards a One World Religion. Lastly, 2 Thess. 2:4 tells us that the Antichrist will proclaim himself to be God in the Temple. For this to happen, a new Temple needs to be built and the Temple Mount Society in Jerusalem is already prepared to do that. These events indicate that we are nearing the time of the Antichrist but it could still be many years away. Who can really say? However, the following events will enable us to identify the Antichrist and know that his appearance in the Temple is very near: </font></font></p>

This will bring about a time of severe persecution known as The Great Tribulation which is spoken of in Matt. 24:21.</font></font></p>

Jesus has warned us not to be deceived into believing someone who claims to be the Christ but to keep away from them and wait for His unmistakable appearance on the clouds, visible like lightning from East to West. When He returns, Jesus will first gather the saints and then pour out His wrath on sinners. After this time of wrath, known as The Day Of The Lord, the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be thrown into the lake of fire and the saints will rule the earth with Jesus (Rev. 19:20; Rev. 20:4; Dan. 7:23-27).</font></font></p>
