This is crazy!!! People will follow anything and anyone that seem to have the answers they are looking for! This not Jesus. nor is he any type of representation of the Messiah! The BIBLE tells EXACTLY how Jesus the Christ, the Messiah would return! "And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” -Acts 1:10-12 (NASB). And that is not the only scripture verse there are many others for instance:
"Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. "So if anyone tells you, 'There he is, out in the desert,' do not go out; or, 'Here he is, in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man." (Matthew 24:4-5; 11;23-27)
"At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other." (Matthew 24:30-31)
"For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done." (Matthew 16:27)
The return of Christ will be an AWESOME appearance, that every eye will see, not some faker in Siberia or anywhere that claims to be Him!!! In other words He won't just "pop up" somewhere! He will come with great glory with His angels in the clouds!

At times we find ourselves running out of patience in matters where we have absolutely no control over the situation. Whether it is at the Dr.s office, grocery store line, looking for a parking spot and then someone pulls in right in front of you and takes the spot you were waiting for, we all find ourselves waiting... and waiting.... and waiting. It's these times when we feel the pressure build up that we should seek Christ and His patience.
The Bible says that the Lord is "longsuffering". This is the model we need to use when dealing with stressful situations and people.
Lord, help me to be patient and longsuffering today. Let me show more of you and less of me. Let me love my neighbor as myself and to be helpful and of service to another person today. In Jesus' holy and righteous name... AMEN!

The sad thing is that this woman represent the "church" today. Most Christians want to have their ear tickled instead of hearing the hard words of Jesus Christ and the Bible. The "church" believes it needs to be more like the world and talk about an all forgiving, loving Jesus that will not judge sin and that basically all mankind is good at heart. They want to believe and preach that Jesus has a "wonderful plan" for your life. The truth is that mankind is evil at heart and yes Jesus is all forgiving... IF you REPENT, not just be "sorry" for your sins but repent of (turn from) your sin and turn to Jesus Christ. The Bible clearly states with the words of Jesus Himself that He WILL judge the sins of the world one day. God does have a wonderful plan for your life and it is not necessarily to ease the burdens of this life. It is not necessarily to bless you with money and possessions, but to give you ETERNAL life with Him! AMEN? AMEN! Think about the Christians worldwide that are being persecuted, jailed, and killed everyday for their faith in Jesus Christ! Do you think they are thinking "WOW, where is this wonderful plan for my life?" NO! They are rejoicing in their tribulation, knowing they will be with the Lord one day! 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 says: "6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight 8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."

I simply love this short sermon!!!! He sums up how God loves us and how we are like prostitutes in how we love Him back... only coming to Him when we need something but as soon as life is good we no longer need Him and give our love and attention to someone or something else.

Teen Challenge is one of the most amazing places I've ever been to. The folks there have a heart for God and are dedicated to raising up disciples for Christ. If you or anyone you know is battling drugs, alcohol or are spiritually bankrupt for any reason Teen Challenge may be for you.

The tomb is empty... we now have a High Priest acquainted with our afflictions, who bore all our sin and sorrow although He never knew sin or sorrow. He is our Redeemer, our King and our Savior! Praise be to God for sending His Righteous One, His Anointed One to save us from the evil one, from ourselves and from hell, which has been prepared for the devil and his angels and praise be to His Son Jesus Christ!
