The Final Generation

This is the 1st of 4 parts of The Final Generation

For all of man's history since his fall in the Garden of Eden to this very day, this is how it has been - For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Eph. 6:12

Man has searched the universe and even the galaxies for the beginning and meaning of life. No man born of woman apart from Jesus has all knowledge or understanding of an all knowing, all seeing, all powerful and loving God.
A God who's righteousness far exceeds that of man's thoughts of what is right and wrong. A God who's righteousness may be explained with verses such as:
"But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." (Matthew 5:28)
"Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him." (1 John 3:15)
"Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry." (Colossians 3:5)
"For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world." (1 John 2:16)
"For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander." Mark 7:21
He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth— the LORD God Almighty is his name. Amos 4:13

It is the God of all Creation that has the absolute authority over all that there is and it is by His Word that man should live. He gives promises of prosperity and victory over every enemy. If His Commandments are kept He brings peace to the land and curses and destruction if there is rebellion against his Word.
An all knowing and loving God knows that the human heart is bent upon doing evil.

Those that refuse to accept Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be judged and with these verses He makes it clear that their path will lead to destruction.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; (Galatians 6:7)
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. (Proverbs 1:7)
Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. (Psalm 107:17)

If it were possible to compare ourselves to this God, it might be that we would be equal to one grain of sand of all the sands found not just on earth, but in all the universe. He is far beyond our conception of what is just and right; with God, there is no comparison.
Sadly, most have no understanding of this because they do not understand nor comprehend God’s wisdom revealed by the Spirit.

For nearly 2,000 years man has tried to disprove the facts and messages found in the Bible and not one of these have been found to be false, because all scripture has but One Author, that is God, who never contradicts Himself.
Historians such as: Eusebius of Caesarea (c. AD 263 – 339 a Roman historian), Philo (20 BC – 50 AD, known also as Philo of Alexandria) and Flavius Josephus, (Born in Jerusalem in 37 CE, who was not a Christian), researched, investigated and authored books telling of a man named Jesus, who performed miraculous miracles and was a leader of a people who later identified themselves as Christian. Yet, even with the Bible there are tens of millions of people who believe there was no Jesus, nor miracles of healing the blind and raising the dead.
Within the the Bible there are hundreds of verses that has taken hundreds if not thousands of years before being proven by scientists who were seeking the truth in several different categories pertaining to the earth, universe, the oceans, man and even medical knowledge. But even the vast majority of scientists refuse to consider the evidence that has been presented which proves the truth of God's Word.

I will post the second part in the next day or so, titled, "The Final Generation ~ Here and Now"
