The third and preferred explanation is that the healing leaves may represent spiritual service or care. The Greek word for healing is θερ απε ία [therapeia],“serving, service, care,” from the verb θερ απε ύω [therapeuō],“to serve, be a servant.” Liddell, Scott, and Jones list many examples where this term refers to serving and has no connection with illness or the need for healing. Only in the sense of care, treatment, or serving the sick did it come to be applied to “healing” or “curing,” as in “therapy” and “therapeutic.” True, the word is used in Revelation 13:3+, 12+ of a wound healed; but in Luke 12:42 it is used of “service” of a faithful and wise steward, and in Acts 17:25 for serving God. The leaves, then, are there to minister to or serve the redeemed as they serve God (Rev. 22:3+).23

The chemical ingredients of the rich foliage of the trees might be available for innumerable uses in the economy of the nations which is to be kept healthy by the leaves of the tree.24

Verses 1 and 2

The angel shows John a clear river flowing "out of the throne of God and the Lamb." We cannot live without water in this life or even in the life to come. The throne seems to be in the middle
of the city and the river starts there. It then flows down
through the middle of the great wide street of gold, which
apparently winds down through the various levels of the city.
We have life only as it continues to flow into us from Him.
The river gives us assurance that in the New Jerusalem the flow
of the water of life will be always sufficient.

The "tree of life" has a similar meaning. Even though our new
bodies will be immortal and incorruptible, not capable of
deterioration, they will never have life in themselves. "Tree"
is probably collective which means that each side of the river
is lined with trees. These trees bear 12 crops of fruit,
yielding its fruit every month. The fruit of these trees will
spring forth all year. These trees will continually bring forth
fruit 12 months of the year, possibly with a variety of fruit.
We will be able to eat and drink without fear of want in the
eternal future.

Ezekiel had a vision in chapter 47. But verse 12 is similar to
the one John see's here in this chapter.

Ezekiel 47:12
Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow
all kinds of trees used for food, their leaves will not wither,
and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month,
because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will
be for food, and their leaves for medicine.

The "leaves of the tree" will be for the "healing of the nations"
(people). Because Revelation 21:4 excludes the idea of sickness,
pain, and death in the New Jerusalem, there does not seem to be
any more need for a healing process. The word "healing" can be
taken to mean "health." Our new bodies will be immortal, not
capable of death and incorruptible, nor of decay, sickness, or
deterioration. The leaves of the tree give the indication that
here will be nothing in the new creation to bring any physical
or spiritual sickness. They also remind us that we shall always
be dependent on God's provision for life, health, strength,
and happiness.

The curse that God placed on he earth as a result of the sin of
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden will be partially lifted
during the Millennium, but completely lifted in the New
Jerusalem. Some suppose we will spend all our time playing
harps. I doubt that.

That may be one aspect of the life God has prepared, but He will
have far more for us. There will always be something new,
fresh and wonderful for us to do and enjoy.

Verse 4
"They shall see his face" refers first of all to Jesus, in the
midst of the throne, for God is a spirit. Our worship will be
unlimited, and full of the joy of seeing his face and
experiencing the full impact of his glory.

"His name shall be in their foreheads" identifies believers as
belonging to Him forever. It also indicates that we will be
like him.

Verse 5
Again the emphasis is that there will be "no night there."
There will be no need for lamps, nor sun. No need for artificial
or natural light. God will be the source of all light. We will
not only worship and serve God, but he will give us joys,
benefits, and privileges of royalty. We shall all reign as kings,
sharing Christ's royal throne and his supernatural, royal power
"forever and ever."

Verses 6-7
The hope and promises of joy and fellowship in the New Jerusalem
given to the saints are "faithful and true" absolutely certain.
The promises given to John are confirmed by an angelic
messenger from the Lord God of the holy prophets.

The announcement of Jesus is that He is coming quickly, soon,
or in a short time.

2 Peter 3:8-9 tells us that God does not look at time the way we
do, and he is not procrastinating, but is "not willing that any
should perish, but that all should come to repentance. We are to
always live in readiness, realizing that now is our salvation
nearer than when we first believed. The times and the seasons
are under the Father's authority and it is our responsibility to
carry out the Great Commission. We must be about the Father's
business until he comes.

The Book of Revelation began with a blessing on both those who
read it aloud and those who hear. Now the blessing is on those
who not only hear but " keepeth the sayings" of its prophecies,
continually observe the book's teachings.

Verses 8-9
The angel who brings this revelation is so full of the glory and
power of God that John falls down before him in worship.
John has been warned before but he is so overwhelmed with the
supernatural and his reaction was spontaneous. The angel
immediately stops John from worshiping him, telling him that he
is but a "fellow servant" serving the Lord like John and his
"brethren the prophets". He has been sent to serve all who keep
the sayings in the Book of Revelation. The angel commands John
to worship God. People are often tempted to worship what they
admire. Cornelius fell at Peter's feet, the lame man who was
healed after Paul's preaching at Lystra
Acts 14:12-18, Acts 10:26

Verse 10
The message of the Book of Revelation is not to be sealed.
It's prophecies are to be proclaimed. The appointed time is at
hand. So it is not to be sealed. Jesus is coming soon. But the
"day of the Lord will come."


REVELATION CHAPTER 22, Verse 11

The Book of Revelation is never to be sealed, or closed. It is
to be read, studied, preached, and taught, always. We can never
be prepared or can we prepare others unless we understand what
is coming and get ready and prepare others. This verse is a
warning to all. The angel gives a warning that indicates that
the time will come when it will be too late to be saved.

The call to repentance, faith, and obedience is still going out
today. This is still the day of salvation. There is still the
opportunity for a person to accept Christ as Savior and Lord
and be changed. But the day will come when the line will be
drawn and destinies determined. In a sense people determine
their own destines now by the choices they make.

One commentary put it this way
If we do not repent, turn away from the world of sin and turn to
God, if we do not get into the Word of God and the prophecies of
Revelation, then our hearts will become harder and harder, more
and more stubborn. Then when the events of the end time hit the
earth, we will be unprepared and our hearts will be so stubborn
and hard we will be lost eternally.

Another commentary put it this way: "He that is unjust" the
wrongdoer includes all who do what is contrary to what is right
in God's eyes. By disregarding the teachings and warnings of
God's Word and by repeated choices the wrongdoer becomes
hardened in a pattern of doing what God says is wrong.
This even includes the moral person who persecutes,
despises, or just ignores the believers in Christ.

Let's go on: "He who is filthy" is one whose habits and speech
are foul and unclean, but it also includes the greedy. This type
of person has no concern about purity and decency and becomes
hardened in his rejection of the Bible's exhortation to be holy
and righteous.

The Book of Revelation is a great incentive for believers to
"be righteous still" and to "be holy still." In other words to
continue in righteousness and holiness, looking for Christ's
return. We do not hear much preached on holiness today.
The righteous person is just, honest, and good because he is
cleansed by the blood of Jesus. The person who is holy, is
living a life dedicated to God, seeking to be like Jesus.

Verses 12 and 13
When Jesus comes, the rewards for every one will have determined,
it will be too late for a person to change. Jesus brought out the
same in the Parable of the Ten virgins where the five who were
not ready found the door shut against them forever.
Matthew 25:11-12

There is no second chance if we spend this life making choices
contrary to God's Word and will. Behold, I come quickly;
indicates His coming will be soon. I think his coming is closer
today than it was yesterday. He could come at any moment,
he could come before we leave this building tonight. When he
does come he will have his rewards with him. But when he comes
back this time it means judgment. He will be coming back to
judge man. Jesus is the "Alpha and Omega," the beginning and the
end. He is the eternal one, and like the Father always existent.

Verses 14 and 15
Those who obey His commandments out of a love for God, and for
Jesus, for their neighbors including foreigners, have permission
to enter the city. There a fullness of blessing awaits them.
They shall have the right to the "tree of life." "Without or
outside" means outside the new heavens and earth, and it is
speaking of the lake of fire, outer darkness. Separated from all
the blessings of God forever. Dogs refers to unclean persons,
sodomites (Homosexuals), and false teachers of low moral
standards. All idolatry is a kind of lie, denial of the true God.
This also includes all who promote and practice falsehood and
false religions.

Verse 16
Jesus confirms that He has sent his angel to testify unto these
things to the churches. Jesus wants the invitation to go forth
until He comes. Jesus further identifies himself as the "root
and offspring of David," the fulfillment of God's promises.
He is also the "bright and morning star."

Verse 17
This chapter now focuses on the work of the Spirit. This last
mention of the Holy Spirit in the Bible draws attention to the
greatest work and ministry of the Spirit in the Church age.
The Holy Spirit inspires the Bride, the whole church to join him
in the invitation, calling everyone who thirsts to come.

The work of evangelism that needs to be done before Christ
returns can be done as it should be done only by believers
empowered by the Holy Spirit. The church must cooperate with
the Spirit not only as a body, but as individuals also.
Everyone then who hears has the responsibility to join in
spreading the invitation.

Verses 18 and 19
Those who read the prophecy aloud and those who hear and keep the
things written in this book will be blessed. But those who hear
it read(and those who read it) must be careful not to treat it
as some ordinary book because it is the inspired Word of God.
If they add unto these things from their own ideas, their own
reasonings, their own speculations, if they twist or distort
its teachings or if they claim to have new revelations of their
own and add them as if they were part of the inspired Word of
God, God will bring on them the "plagues that are written in
this book.

Jesus warnings to His disciples concerning false prophets coming
at the end of the age, this is a much needed warning today.
False teachers and false prophets will pervert the meaning of
Scripture deliberately. We need to keep searching the Scriptures,
so that we will not be led astray. This is not talking about
different translations. Each language has its own way of saying
the same thing. But even today we need to be careful because
there are translations being brought out today that are changing
the meaning of the original words, also taking away such as
removing the Blood from scripture, the virgin birth denied.

If we search the scriptures and keep open to the Holy Spirt there
is enough truth in most translations for the Holy Spirit to use
to bring salvation and give guidance for life. But if a person
uses a verse here and a half verse there, out of context,
he can pervert the meaning of Scripture even using the best
translations.

Some readers and hearers want to "take away" or spiritualize the
prophecies of the Book of Revelation. God will take away their
part in the promised inheritance. They will have no part
in the "book of life."

Though verses 18 and 19 deal specifically with the prophecies and
warnings in the Book of Revelation, the principle applies to all
the Bible. Moses told the people of Israel, "ye shall not add
unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish
aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord
your God which I command you. Deuteronomy 4:2

Jesus implied the same thing when He said "Till heaven and earth
pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,
till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:18

Verse 20
Once again Jesus final promise repeats us the assurance that He
is coming quickly. Keeping the attitude of waiting for His
coming, keeping the hope of His coming before us, will help us
to purify ourselves.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus is also a recognition that we wait for
his coming to bring our complete redemption. Not until he comes
will we enter into the fullness of our inheritance which is the
hope of our salvation. The soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
is still the blessed hope of the Church. We must not let the
vision of it grow dim.

He is the King of kings, the bright and morning star, the Sun of
righteousness, and he is indeed coming to take those who keep
believing in him to his Father's house.

Unbelievers may think it strange that the true followers of
Christ do not join them in their lusts, revelings, drunkenness,
and other excesses. But as believers we do not join them because
we know we must give account to the One who is ready to judge
the living and the dead.

Verse 21
The Book of Revelation ends with a benediction. It assures us
that the grace of our Lord Jesus will be with us until He comes.
His grace includes not only his unmerited favor that provides
for us the forgiveness of our sins, but it provides also the
power to live a holy life that endures to the end.
Titus 2:11-14

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all
men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present
age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our
great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us,
that He might redeem us from every lawless deed, and purify
for himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

REPENT ~ STOP!
Turn around and go the other way.

If you are living together sexually, get married or get out.
This is SIN! ALL sexual activity outside of marriage is
SIN.- STOP!

If you are lying or deceiving, STOP! Tell the Truth.
Have integrity. Let what you say today also be true tomorrow.

If you are gossiping, STOP! Speak well of others or don't speak.
Exercise responsibility not rights.

You can argue with me, or justify yourself, or say you know God
is love & forgives, but GOD HATES SIN! You can NOT quarrel
with GOD. We are NOT the Light to the world if we are living as
they live. We are NOT salt if our life style does not convict.

Can you say ...
practice what you preach?
Our life is the ONLY BIBLE some will read.

God's judgment comes FIRST to the church.
The Father grieves over a church which is blind, naked,
no covering of religiosity can hide selfish motives from the
Father. To reject powerful words from a powerful God is to
remain lukewarm, without passion, far from the One we
claim to follow.

He sent the prophets to rebuke, to point out sin, to a deaf
church who desires only sweet praises & total acceptance of
everything they do, to please their itching ears. What they
desire is whitewash to cover the flimsy wall that they are.
When the enemy moves with power, as he is beginning to do,
it is going to be with a religious covering & disguise, & so
will all who are religious be deceived, because they rejected
& judged the messengers who brought the truth
and would not be rebuked.

lampstands

I know your deeds, activities, toil & troubles & your patient
endurance, & that you cannot tolerate evil men, & you put to the
test those who call themselves God's messengers but are not, and
you found them to be liars, imposters, and you have endured for
My name's sake, and have not given up. But I have this against
you, that you left left the love for Me you had at first.

Remember from where you have fallen and repent, change your
heart to line up with God's will and do what you did when you
first knew Me; or I am coming to you and will remove your
lampstand out of its place, unless you repent. Yet this you have
in your favor, that you hate those who corrupt others, which I
also detest. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
says to the churchs. To him who overcomes I will grant to eat

WHAT MUST I DO to be SAVED?
TRUST in JESUS

JESUS is the BRIDGE over troubled waters
TRUST is a CHOICE, not a feeling

Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is give yourself up to
Him, take yourself out of your own keeping & entrust yourself
into His keeping) & you will be saved; (this applies both to)
you & your household too.- Acts 16:31 amplified

Jesus said "I AM the Way, the Truth & the Life.
NO ONE comes to the Father except through Me."

I AM the DOOR
Anyone who enters in thru ME will live
and come and go freely, and find pasture.
John 10:9

GOD CREATED YOU!
You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

GOD LOVES YOU!
GOD so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal
life - John 3:16

Since we have been justified thru faith we have PEACE with
GOD thru Jesus Christ. Thru Him we have gained access by
faith into GOD's grace in which we stand. We rejoice in the
hope of enjoying Gods glory. Hope does not disappoint us,
for when we were still sinners, Christ died for us!- Romans 5

We are ALL sinners, just don't live in sin. Jesus Christ the
Messiah died on the cross, shed His Holy blood for our sin.
He is the perfect Lamb. We only need to confess our sin and
turn away from it to follow Him!

If I (Jesus) am lifted up, I will draw all men to Me

Haggai 2:6
Thus says the Lord of hosts, once more in a little while,
I am going to shake the heavens & the earth,
the sea also and the dry land.. and all the nations

I shall not be greatly shaken. Others delight in falsehood;
they bless with their mouth, but inwardly curse. My soul waits
in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is
my rock, my strength, my salvation, & my refuge.- Psalms 62

The Lord is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
I will live in hope, because You will not abandon me
Acts 2:25-26

The road is narrow, and few find it

Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:17

Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
Romans 10:13

GOD WANTS YOU to KNOW HIM
Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true
God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent" (John 17:3)

This is the message we have heard from Him & announce to you,
that God is Light, & in Him there is no darkness at all. If we
say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the
darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk
in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship
with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us
from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving
ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not
sinned we make him a liar and his word of truth is not in us.
1 John 1:5-10

A secret event, the RAPTURE, or APPEARING of Jesus Christ, we
shall not all die but be transformed in a moment, the twinkling

I Corinthians 15:51

We shall NOT all die! You are not in darkness so this day should
surprise you; you are sons of the Light, so be alert & self
controlled watchful & encourage each other with this hope.
I Thessalonians 4:6-8

Don't be disturbed about the Second Coming of Christ & our being
gathered to him. It won't come til the falling away from the
faith first, & the man of sin is revealed, who insolently exalts
himself over all that is called God & takes his seat in the
temple proclaiming he, himself is God. You know what is
restraining him from being revealed now, but He Who restrains
will be taken out of the way. Then the antichrist will be
revealed.- II Thessalonians 2

Many believe 'he who restrains' evil should be the CHURCH.
Today's churchs accept SIN along with the sinner.

Psalm 91



He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the
shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, my Refuge & my
fortress, my God in whom I trust! For it is He who delivers you

(disease). He will cover you with His pinions, & under His wings
you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield & bulwark.

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right

place. No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near
your home.

For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you
in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, lest you
strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion
and cobra, the young lion & the serpent you will trample down.

Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My Name.
He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble I will rescue him, and honor him.
With a long life I will satisfy him,
And let him behold My Salvation.

She asked him if Daniel was watching the lions and he responded
no. She said Daniel's FOCUS was on GOD,- not on the lions!

We are ALL sinners, just don't live in sin

I AM the DOOR
If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved. John 10:9

True Salvation

Unlike the uncertainty of other religions,
Christians KNOW we are going to Heaven - for SURE!
The REAL Christians have no doubt.

SALVATION is FREE
by Grace and Faith in Jesus Christ, GOD's only Son.
There is Salvation nowhere else in no one else.
Jesus (Yeshua) is the ONLY DOOR to Heaven, to GOD!!
All who reject the Christ are in HELL forever.
After Salvation, we OBEY the word of GOD.
This is NOT works Salvations, it is the RESULT of Salvation
We are not saved by any good works.

LIFE is a constant BALANCE
between Faith, Grace, trusting Jesus Christ alone
for SALVATION, realizing we can never be perfect
enough to earn Heaven, yet striving daily to follow
the LORD and the Bible, the word of GOD.
To choose to kill the baby within you,
to choose to become drunk on alcohol or drugs
to choose to live a sinful lifestyle living sexually
with someone outside of marriage, are sins
that will damn you to hell.

Salvation is repentance towards God
and faith in Yeshua, Christ Jesus Acts 20:21
Testifying to both Jews and Greeks of repentance
toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We prove our repentance by our deeds Acts 26:20
Repent and turn to God, performing deeds appropriate to repentance

The Lord Jesus taught the road to life is hard
and only a few will find it. Enter through the narrow gate
for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads
to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life,
and there are few who find it. Mathew 7:13-14

Many get saved, but afterwards fall away. Luke 8:13
Those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear,
receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root;
they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away.
As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew
and were not walking with Him anymore. John. 6:66

n other words, after initial salvation we must endure to the
end to enter the kingdom of God and escape the lake of fire.
You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one
who has endured to the end who will be saved. Matthew 10:22
We have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the
beginning of our assurance firm until the end. Hebrews 3:14
Do not fear what you are about to suffer.
Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison,
so that you will be tested, and you will have tribulation
for ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the
crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by
the second death. Revelation 2:10,11

SALVATION is FREE!

Eternal life comes to the repentant the moment such believe
on Jesus for salvation. God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send
the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world
might be saved through Him. John 3:16; Truly, truly,
I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. John 6:47
He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the
Son of God does not have the life. These things I have
written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God,
so that you may know that you have eternal life.
1 John 5:12,13

But there is another important aspect of eternal life
that many are totally unaware of in our day because
of the false teaching of once saved always saved.
According to true grace teaching, eternal life is also a HOPE.
Yet to be REAPED in the AGE TO COME for only the
ones who PERSIST IN DOING GOOD and
DO NOT GROW WEARY AND GIVE UP.

We are being justified by His grace we would be
made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:7

For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the
flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the
Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not
lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap
if we do not grow weary. Galations 6:8-9

We will receive a hundred times as much now in
the present age, houses and brothers and sisters
and mothers and children and farms, along with
persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.
Mark 10:30

God will give to each person according to what he
has done, to those who by persistence in doing good
seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give
eternal life. Romans 2:6-7

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!
If a saved person sows to please his sinful nature
he'll die spiritually. The prodigal is a clear example
The end result of sin is spiritual death, HELL.

If you are living according to the flesh, you must die
but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds
of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13

The one who sows to his own flesh will from the
flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the
Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us
not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we
will reap if we do not grow weary. Galations 6:8-9
what to DO to be SAVED

Prodigal son:
Luke 15:24 for this son of mine was dead and has
come to life again; he was lost and has been found.
And they began to celebrate. Luke 15:32 But we had
to celebrate and rejoice, for this brother of yours was
dead and has begun to live, and was lost and is found.

James 1:14-16 Each one is tempted when he is
carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then
when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and
when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

Because of the false teaching of once saved always saved,
grace has been taught as a license for immorality for so long,
and without challenge, that when Scripture is quoted,
such as 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 or Revelation 21:8, it is
disregarded, and the giver of God's Word is falsely
accused of teaching legalism, bondage, works, etc.
This reflects how truly dark are the days in which we live!

1 Corinitains 6:9 The unrighteous will not inherit the
kingdom of God. Do not be deceived;
neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
(abusers of themselves with mankind)
nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards,
nor revilers, nor swindlers,
will inherit the kingdom of God.

The ACID TEST question
to know if a ministry or local congregation is
teaching a license for immorality as condemned
by Jude 3,4 is:
Does true grace allow the sexually immoral in heaven?
If their answer is YES, avoid it like the AIDS virus!
To sit under this teaching influence could mean
that your soul and the souls of your loved ones
will be eternally damned as a result. To support
and promote such a ministry and teaching is to
share in its wicked work. 2 John 9-11
This includes your financial donations!
Flee from such a ministry or congregation
and encourage others to do the same
before it's eternally too late.

Jude 1:3-4 I urge you to contend for the
faith that was once for all entrusted to the
saints. For certain men whose condemnation
was written about long ago have secretly
slipped in among you. They are godless men,
who change the grace of our God into a license
for immorality and deny Jesus Christ
our only Sovereign and Lord.

2 John 1:9 Anyone who goes too far and
does not abide in the teaching of Christ,
does not have God; the one who abides
in the teaching, he has both the Father
and the Son. If anyone comes to you
and does not bring this teaching, do not
receive him into your house, and do not
give him a greeting;
for the one who gives him a greeting
participates in his evil deeds.

Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Christ, the annointed One.
He is the Son of GOD Who was present at the creation of all things.

Romans 10:9-10 declares
If YOU CONFESS with your mouth Jesus as Lord,
and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes,
resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses,
resulting in SALVATION!

we are warning you people
gift of tongues

Seri Kembangan, Malaysia

But the Gift of Tongues (in public assembly) is almost unknown
in our circles anymore.
Oh I know, dear reader, you'll probably disagree with me. You'll say, "We have it in our church."
No, you probably don't.
Let me tell you what you probably have. This is very common.
You probably have people who feel a little
inspiration so they stand up in a service and simply speak out real loud in their prayer language.
That is
not a message in tongues.
Then someone else will stand up and speak the first thought that pops into
their
heads.
That is not the interpretation of tongues.
True manifestations of these Gifts are riveting.
They are powerful.
They absolutely stop everything that is going on, and arrest your attention completely.
No two messages are ever closely alike. And they
are deeply, deeply, moving and inspiring.
You know without a shadow of a doubt that you have just had an experience with God Himself, and that
you have just heard from the Throne. Something changes on the inside of you when a genuine message
in tongues co
mes forth, because such messages are containers of God's anointing and glory.
When it is someone speaking in their prayer language, and someone mistakenly trying to "interpret"
that, it is mostly just blank. Blank is the best description I can think of.
Th
e "message" might contain some nice sounding words and some pleasant thoughts, but even as it is
being spoken, your attention wanders. These kinds of messages all sound pretty much the same.
They will say things like:
"Oh My people, My people! Your praises
today have ascended to me like the incense of the Temple of
Old..."
Next week it will be like:
"Oh My people, My people, My people![3 'My peoples' this time] Your prayers have ascended to me like
the wings of angels...[prayers and angels' wings this week
...ooooh!...cool!..]."
They may stir a little emotion, but they are not truly moving or inspiring. But as a result of these
messages, nothing actually
changes
.
Week after week, basically the same people rattling off variations of the same messages, and no
one is
ever really transformed. And church doesn't change. It just stays in the same old rut. Deep down inside,
you doubt the message
--
not because "the Devil is trying to rob you of it." You doubt it because you
think, "Surely it should all amount to more
than this!"
Genuine manifestations of Tongues and interpretation ARE much more than that!
There is a depth of the Spirit that is closely tied in with speaking in tongues, both the prayer language
and the public gift. With this gift being reserved in the t
reasure rooms of Heaven throughout eternity
and presented as a Gift to the Church of the Son of God, it is to be a significant part of our personal and
public prayer and worship, and of our communications from God.
