You have to be willing to humble yourself. In order to really understand the world, you live in, you have to be willing to humble yourself. This is the biggest problem separating people from truth and reality. You have to be willing to humble yourself. We all feel (for the most part) that we are intelligent. We all feel that we have common sense. We all have bigger things to concern ourselves with. So when there are times that the truth presents itself to us, we choose to ignore it or minimalize it. We feel that we’ve heard some variation of this story before. Enough that we feel we know something about it. Enough at least for us to know that it’s not something that we need to put a focus on.
The Lord is on His way. While we do not know the day nor hour of that day of the Lord, we do know what the times will look like. Anyone paying attention to Bible prophecy will tell you that those days look a lot like today’s time. It is fact, not opinion that many members of the church will be left behind. Many do not want to acknowledge or embrace this fact, but nevertheless it is a fact. Jesus has spoken directly to the church on this point.
Why do we go to Church on Sunday? Now if you have any Orthodox Jews in your community you will notice regularly that they rest on the Sabbath (the 7th day). They recognize the 7th day as Saturday. This is when they rest and follow the commandment in the Law of resting on the Sabbath. Now the question many should ask, that many don’t ask. I know I asked it as a kid and never got a real response. The question is if Jews & Christians alike both worship the same God, the Father. Then why do we recognize different days as the Sabbath.
In case you missed the rapture, the rapture being the time when Jesus removed His bride (the church) from the earth before the Great Tribulation, there are things you may want cleared up in reference to the world before the rapture happened. I’ve written this because scripture says that in the time that your currently in there will be strong delusion that will not allow many of you to receive the truth (2 Thessalonians 2:11). This is my attempt to provide some assistance in accessing the truth and breaking that strong delusion. In specific reference to our society that was in growing rebellion against God before the rapture, it may be clear that society was and still is against Jesus and the God of the Jews.

In specific reference about Christians and the church before the rapture there are some things you need to know. First off, not everyone that called themselves “Christians” were actually believers in repentance & salvation only through Jesus Christ. Not all of them had a relationship with Jesus Christ. Not all of them lived by His Word and made Him the priority & center point of their life.
Should Christians do yoga? There is a growing consensus today that it is alright for Christians to engage in the practice and exercise of yoga. There is even a movement going around named “Christian Yoga” or “Yoga for Christians”. There are churches that embrace it and even provide yoga classes for their congregation. Many feel its ok because they play gospel music or scriptures with their exercise so it takes away from any other notions that come with yoga. But is it really okay for Christians to be doing yoga? Like with many traditions that we practice today, the answer becomes much clearer and simple if we just educate ourselves on the background and history of things. So we should obviously take a look at what yoga is.
The 2 biggest risk for Christians when the Lord comes back for His Bride is for them: Being lukewarm (Revelations 3:15) or Having the Lord say “I never knew you” (Matthew 7:21-23). This is a subject that many don't hear preached often from the pulpit, but it is something that all should be cognizant of because of the major risks & implications involved.
Does Your Future Match What God Says or What You Say? Does your outlook of the future match with God’s Will? Does your view match what God has told us or does it match more with what the world generally hopes for? These things mainly being peace, prosperity, & success? It's a reasonable question to ask one’s self.
This morning I saw an article from CNN written about Gilbert Baker, the man famed for designing and creating the gay pride symbol - the Rainbow Flag. It was titled, “Rainbow flag maker inspired by the Bible, U.S. flag”. In the article, it expressed Mr. Baker’s happiness on the latest Supreme Court decision on gay rights, his struggle he had while he fought for gay rights in the 70’s when he made the flag, and how making the flag was the most important thing he’d ever done. It also discussed that the flag was inspired by the Bible and how no one should be able to argue against it because it was inspired from the Bible. His words exactly were:
