The True Grace of God and the Law of the Jungle



In this present evil age, people respond to trials in various ways based on their respective worldview. In short, we can summarize the different responses into two camps: It's God's grace versus the law of the jungle; a race to the bottom versus the survival of the fittest. So, what about you? What is your mindset when you suffer hardship? Are you "strong-arming" your way through your current trial, or are you relying on "the mighty hand of God" to pull you through? 


And based on your history of going through trials, how do you respond when the heat is on and the fire grows higher? How do you typically react when you're under attack?


Note: As a believer in Christ, you are a part of God's little flock (1 Pet. 5:2-3; cf. Lk. 12:32; Acts 20:29). That means you are not an apex predator; you are the prey. And without venom, claws, or sharp teeth, what then is your only means of defense against the wild beasts that seek to devour you and the rest of God's children?


Please watch the final video of the 1 Peter series and see the study notes below to discover the one and only response to the restless and ruthless enemy who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy:

  1. We are not to be ignorant of their devices.
    Test the spirits see what kind they are.
    Because they will turn on you if you are not wise about whatever you are doing.
    He goes before you to work His good to those who are the called according to His purpose and He will give you whatever is needed at the time.
    So Trust in the Lord. Gold tried in the fire of life.

    What did He say, "be wise as serpent's but gentle as doves".

    For me Its the Laodicean persuasion that's the toughest nut to crack weather its catholic or some other cult religion.

    Paul tells us you cannot get to God without Christs righteousness.
    A good study of The Temple in the wilderness explains everything about who Christ is!

  3. Pentecost is the perfect picture of law and grace. Pentecost is a high watch time for the rapture or for another outpouring of the Holy Spirit. As we know Jesus was crucified on Passover, buried on Unleavened Bread, raised on First Fruits. Colossians 2:17 says the Holy Days(Feast) are a shadow of things to come. The Feast of Pentecost arrives on June 5th and provides a perfect picture of the rapture in many ways. The Church was birthed on Pentecost. Jewish people
    believe Pentecost is the day the fruit of the trees is judged. King David was born and died on Pentecost. According to tradition Enoch was born and raptured on Pentecost. The Law was given at Mt. Sinai on Pentecost and 3000 people died. Peter preached the Gospel of Grace on Pentecost and 3000 people were saved. The book, "Pentecostal Rapture of the Church of Jesus
    Christ" by Jack Langford supports a Pentecost rapture. The late Chuck Missler a great Bible teacher was a supporter of a possible Pentecost rapture. Some now support a 6th seal rapture because the rapture will cause the greatest earthquake of all time because all resurrections in the Bible cause earthquakes. Rev 6:12. Both Pentecost and Trumpets Feast include the use of trumpets. The trumpet was blown and Moses went up. As one pastor said the rapture is so close he isn't looking for signs but is listening for trumpet sounds. Thanks for all you do and God bless you.

    2. Did you find it? The article has slipped out of first place, but it starts with an 'A'. The last sentences are: "I’m not so sure that something shocking will come out of this hearing but it is a conditioning of sorts to an event that happens around the time of the upcoming collapse. It’s when THEY come down. "

  5. Bloomberg: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-13/europe-and-us-set-for-scorching-dry-summer-scientists-say "Europe and US Set for Scorching, Dry Summer, Scientists Say".

    A very hot and dry summer in both the US and in Europe will pose risks for crops, which are already under pressure by the war in Ukraine, and will boost demand for energy needed for cooling. Also a sign of the coming Tribulation Period in which the climate will get totally out of control with unbearable heat in temperate climate zones. Could this probably extremely hot and dry summer be the very first summer right after the Rapture?

    As long as our Lord God tarries with the Rapture, let us pray that this summer won't be as hot as dry as what the scientists have predicted.

    2. THE PESACH SHENI BLOOD MOON

      Per the current Hebrew calendar yesterday (5/15) was Pesach Sheni -- the Second Passover. It is a day of second chances originally established so that those who were unclean at the First Passover at the Exodus could partake of the Seder one month later. Hence, the second chance.

      Quoting, Chabad.org

      In response to their plea, G-d established the 14th of Iyar as a "second Passover" (pesach sheini) for anyone who was unable to bring the offering on its appointed time in the previous month. The day thus represents the "second chance" achieved by teshuvah the power of repentance and "return." In the words of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch, "The Second Passover means that it's never a 'lost case.'"

      We serve the GOD of second chances.

      It has been 80 days from the February 24th invasion of Ukraine by Russia to this blood moon. Remember: Moses was 80 when G-D sent him to Pharaoh to declare, "Let My people go". 80 years is the years of a generation, if by strength, as given in (Psalm 90:10) Three weeks from now is Shavuot (Pentecost). That's 7 + 7 + 7 days from now. Another interesting day count is to Armistice Day (11/11). Pesach Sheni to Armistice Day is 180 days. That's six months or half of 360; half of a circle. In some ways it reminds of repentance. Turning around and going the opposite way.

      Hmmm...

      On the 15th, Finland announced it was making application to NATO. Today, Sweden has formally announced they will make application to join NATO as well.

      These are interesting days that both nations would announce officially that they will make application to NATO. Why? Because Pesach Sheni also happened to be the birthday of the State of Israel (5/14) and the blood moon of (5/15) over the Atlantic states (Americas and Europe with parts of Asia and Africa as well) marked the 74th anniversary of the beginning of the Arab/Israeli conflict.

      Is it me or is CONCLUSION, DEATH and WAR written all over this blood moon?

      As Christian Saints we serve the GOD of second, twenty-second, two-hundred twenty second, two-thousand two-hundred twenty-second chances...

      Today is the day to repent. To turn away from our self-centred course and set our hearts, minds, eyes and ears squarely on the LORD. (Deuteronomy 6:5) Repent while forgiveness is at hand. Seek the LORD while there is time. Soon it may be too late. Accept and believe that Jesus of Nazareth, Son of man, Son of God, came and died for you upon the cross that by His blood you may be forgiven and be blameless in the eyes of Almighty God and inherit eternal life with your Creator.

      The LORD is gracious and forgiving and has compassion on all of His creation. (Psalm 145:9), (Romans 10:9-10)

      Today is the day to love. Share the Love of Christ with those He gives you today. Share the good news of Jesus with those who have an ear to hear and a heart to listen. (Matthew 22:37-40)

      At all times Put God First (#PGF) seeking Him in prayer and walking humbly by the Spirit. LOVE as you have been LOVED.

      Blessings, always,

  7. Yes, Moin,

    I have heard that as well. Still, there is reporting that the issues Turkey has with Finland and Sweden should not be an issue to their final acceptance. Here is one,

    Quoting, Aljazeera,

    Turkey sets demands, not opposed to Finland, Sweden NATO bid

    NATO and the United States say they are confident Turkey will not impede the membership of Finland and Sweden in the Western military alliance, despite Ankara expressing reservations.

    Turkey laid out demands on Sunday on the sidelines of a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Berlin, saying it wanted the two Nordic countries to end support for Kurdish groups present on their territory, and to lift the ban on sales of some arms to Turkey.

    I know this reporting is now 24 hours old and newer stories are less encouraging -- I would trend on the side of Turkey siding with demands needing be addressed here.

    Staying tuned...

    Russia suddenly stopping natgas deliveries to Europe will throw the EU into mayhem. Will this cause the EU to fall apart, Eastern European nations joining Russia and the formation of the antichrist's Revived Roman Empire? A deal between Israel and Europe about supplying natgas from Israel to Europe can be a part of the Covenant with the many which the antichrist will confirm.

  9. At https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK_Cs3e0wwg "We Are On The Verge Of Something Huge Folks!!!" about Israel going to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.

    It seems to be that the ongoing war in Ukraine is only an appetizer of what is about to happen in the Middle East very soon. A major war in the Middle East will really set prophetic developments in motion, which will lead to the glorious Second Coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

  11. after reading the post @ www.rairfoundation.com called, Pandemic Treaty: The Beginning of Global Health Governance i get the feeling that this will be the covenant w many (death covenant) of the a.c. beast apparatus,...i really do. The False Worldly, Fleshly Peace n Security agreement that opposes the True Everlasting Blood Covenant that Christ Himself confirmed through His death and resurrection which offers all of the many, Eternal Security in the realm of Spirit and Ultimate Reality,....think about it. i do realize that im probably way off here but maybe not. im thinking outside the box i suppose, however . . . i really do think that it makes biblical sense.

  12. At bbc.com/news/world-europe-61503049 "Ukraine invasion could cause global food crisis, UN warns". See also https://news.un.org/en/story/2022/05/1118562 "Nations must ‘act together, urgently and with solidarity’ to end crisis of food insecurity".

    We see that the famine of Revelation 6 during the Third Seal Judgment with the Rider on a black horse is in the making now. This will happen during the Tribulation period under the extremely harsh ruler ship of the antichrist who will also use food as a weapon, but much more extreme as what Putin is doing now.

  16. 24 MAY

    May 24th has been the day that I remember the loss of HMS Hood and her crew in the Battle of the Denmark Strait during World War II. It was a dark day for Britain. That year by the Jewish calendar 42 days had been counted toward the Omer. It was Omer Day 42. March 24th was a Sabbath, a Saturday, the sixth Shabbat of the count to Shavuot (Pentecost) and even more interestingly Ascension Day. Of her 1418 member crew only three survived her sinking by the Nazi German Battleship KM Bismarck.

    Yesterday, May 24, 2022 was Omer Day 37 (the 12th prime number) and falls 12 days to Shavuot (Pentecost). Per the Essene calendar (5/24) was the third day of the third month.

    The heinous and horrific events of Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas (US) involved the loss of predominately 10 year old children. 19 students and two teachers.
    Even my broken heart asks why? God hears all prayers and answers them. He is near to the broken-hearted and has promised never to leave us -- especially in the valley of the shadow of death.

    Though the enemy is pressing hard at the gates there is something interesting in the numbers 1-9-2,

    Strong's Concordance (G192)
    akrasia: want of power
    Original Word: ἀκρασία, ας, ἡ
    Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
    Transliteration: akrasia
    Phonetic Spelling: (ak-ras-ee'-a)
    Definition: want of power
    Usage: incontinence, intemperance (in wide sense), lack of restraint.

    HELPS Word-studies
    192 akrasía (from 1 /A "not" and 2904 /krátos, "prevail") – properly, without prevailing (taking dominion), i.e. the inability to maintain control; (figuratively) without self-control and hence mastered by personal appetites (urges).


    Strong's Concordance
    Evil Merodak: "man of Merodach," son and successor of Nebuchadnezzar
    Original Word: אֱוִיל מְרֹדַךְ
    Part of Speech: Proper Name Masculine
    Transliteration: Evil Merodak
    Phonetic Spelling: (ev-eel' mer-o-dak')
    Definition: "man of Merodach", son and successor of Nebuchadnezzar

    NAS Exhaustive Concordance
    Word Origin: of foreign origin
    Definition: "man of Merodach," son and successor of Nebuchadnezzar
    NASB Translation: Evil-merodach (2).

    No, I am not dogmatic about Strong's numbers in this way. It is merely a data-point along the way to the Day in which we place our hope. Keep in mind though, that we are not here to hunker down and occupy until we're extracted from this place. We are Ambassadors of Christ and should conduct ourselves in no less manner.

    May we as a body and individually pray for the suffering and oppressed around the world. That the LORD will deliver them in their time of trial and pain. These are transient things in this place but there? We who are alive in Christ are more alive than ever in His presence than we ever were here on Earth.

    I grieve the loss of these little lambs. Yet how much more must take place before all things are placed beneath His feet? This is why we must share the Love of Christ with those He gives us today. Tomorrow may not be an option.

    May the souls of Robb Elementary School rest in the arms of the LORD Himself.

    1. Hi PR,
      How can ascension day be on a Sabbath? Is it a different ascension day then the church keeps? Or do you mean just the Sabbath after ascension day?

      Delete
    2. Month Two In The Spiritual Year (1941). I may be reading them wrong but most other calendars put Ascension Day on the 22nd. This is likely the Sabbath after Ascension Day for 1941.

  17. A couple more observations,

    21 killed in the attack on Robb Elementary 12 days before Shavuot. Shavuot is the 15th day of the third month per the Essene calendar and falls 15 weeks, three days before Yom Teruah (9/20) this year by the same calendar. (Keep in mind the Pharisee calendar is a little different). (John 21) recounts the events around the catch of 153 large fish that are taken in the early morning hours to Jesus on the shores of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee). A perfect picture of the harpazo to come.

    Uvalde is home town and birthplace of Christian actor Matthew McConaughey 52 years ago.

    Yesterday was also an election day in the State of Texas. A day of choosing on which predominately 10 year old children were killed. Keep in mind that 10 generations of man lived on the earth before the flood waters came and swept away all those who did not choose God.

    Again, not being dogmatic about any of these points. They are just points of observation. Grim as they are I will end posting data-points with that...

  18. THREE-TWO-ONE-LIFT OFF!!!

    Mega Artemis moon rocket will roll out to the launchpad June 6

    Quoting, CNN,

    "The NASA team is preparing to roll the 322-foot-tall (98-meter-tall) Artemis I rocket stack, including the Space Launch System and Orion spacecraft, back to the launchpad on June 6 at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The rollout is expected to last for about 12 hours."

    How appropriate it is that a modern expression of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) should start making its way to the launchpad on Shavuot?!! And that this tower be named after the "twin sister" of Apollo, the goddess Artemis? As in Artemis of the Ephesians. (Acts 19)

    God put an end to the works of building the ancient tower. Will He do it again?

    Hmmm...

    Don't get me wrong. I applaud the scientific exploration of God's creation to expand our knowledge and understanding about the way He has ordered everything. I admire people like Michael Faraday, a fellow Christian brother and inquisitive scientific soul that sought to understand creation to the Glory of the Creator. I used to work as an engineer in the aerospace industry and supported at least one space mission. But shadows are shadows and the roll-out and timing of the SLS on Shavuot should catch ones attention.

    I personally find the symbolism and timing interesting and thought I would share...
