OUR times are in GOD's HAND


Philippians 1:6

King James Version

6 Being confident of this very thing, 

that he which hath begun a good work in you 

will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

What is your destiny?

Would you really know it?

Where would you find truth about it?

If you're not born again, JESUS commands you become born again.

That you may be born of the SPIRIT, and understand the ways of SPIRIT.

The TRUE born again doesn't divine the future.

Our fate, our lives, our work, our friends, our families, are in GOD's HAND alone.

Psalm 31:15

King James Version

15 My times are in thy hand

deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, 

and from them that persecute me.

SCRIPTURE -- the WORD of GOD -- testifies of it.

GOD, in the OLD TESTAMENT, said:

Isaiah 46:9-11

King James Version

9 Remember the former things of old: 

for I am God, 

and there is none else; 

I am God, 

and there is none like me,

10 Declaring the end from the beginning, 

and from ancient times the things that are not yet done


My counsel shall stand, 

and I will do all my pleasure:

11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, 

the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: 


I have spoken it, 

I will also bring it to pass; 

I have purposed it, 

I will also do it.

Isaiah 55:11

King James Version

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: 

it shall not return unto me void, 

but it shall accomplish that which I please, 

and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Jeremiah 1:5

King James Version

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; 

and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee

and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

King James Version

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 

saith the Lord, 

thoughts of peace, 

and not of evil, 

to give you an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, 

and ye shall go and pray unto me, 

and I will hearken unto you.

13 And ye shall seek me, 

and find me, 

when ye shall search for me 

with all your heart.

JESUS, in the NEW TESTAMENT, said:

John 6:37-40

King James Version

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; 

and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:47

King James Version

I say unto you, 

He that believeth on me 

hath everlasting life.

as the scripture hath said, 

out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

and I know them, 

and they follow me:

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them 

out of my hand.

John 10:29

King James Version

29 My Father, 

which gave them me, 

is greater than all; 

and no man is able to pluck them 

out of my Father's hand.

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.

Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God 

as a little child 

shall in no wise enter therein.

Luke 21:17-19

King James Version

17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

And now, let these other verses INFORM you, GUIDE you, and COMFORT you, and your loved ones, as you wonder what your purpose is, and what your futures may be.

Job 23:13-14

King James Version

13 But he is in one mind, 

and who can turn him? 

and what his soul desireth, 

even that he doeth.

14 For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: 

and many such things are with him.

all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow

for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

Habakkuk 2:3

King James Version

but at the end it shall speak, 

and not lie: 

though it tarry, 

wait for it; 

because it will surely come

it will not tarry.

them he also called: 

and whom he called, 

them he also justified: 

and whom he justified, 

them he also glorified.

Matthew 10:16

King James Version

16 Behold, 

I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: 

be ye therefore wise as serpents,

 and harmless as doves.

How did the LORD JESUS prepare His disciples for the world?

This whole chapter from Scripture tells us.

Matthew 10

King James Version

10 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, 

he gave them power against unclean spirits, 

to cast them out, 

and to heal all manner of sickness 

and all manner of disease.

2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; 

The first, Simon, 

who is called Peter

and Andrew his brother; 

James the son of Zebedee, 

and John his brother;

3 Philip

and Bartholomew


and Matthew the publican; 

James the son of Alphaeus, 

and Lebbaeus, 

whose surname was Thaddaeus;

4 Simon the Canaanite, 

and Judas Iscariot

who also betrayed him.

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth

and commanded them, saying, 

Go not into the way of the Gentiles, 

and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as ye go, 



The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, 

cleanse the lepers, 

raise the dead, 

cast out devils

freely ye have received, 

freely give.

9 Provide neither gold, 

nor silver, 

nor brass in your purses,

10 Nor scrip for your journey, 

neither two coats, 

neither shoes, 

nor yet staves

for the workman is worthy of his meat.

11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, 

enquire who in it is worthy

and there abide till ye go thence.

12 And when ye come into an house, 

salute it.

13 And if the house be worthy, 

let your peace come upon it

but if it be not worthy, 

let your peace return to you.

14 And whosoever shall not receive you, 

nor hear your words, 

when ye depart out of that house or city, 

shake off the dust of your feet.

15 Verily I say unto you, 

It shall be more tolerable 

for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, 

than for that city.

16 Behold, 

I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: 

be ye therefore wise as serpents, 

and harmless as doves.

17 But beware of men

for they will deliver you up to the councils, 

and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, 

for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

19 But when they deliver you up, 

take no thought how or what ye shall speak: 

for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

20 For it is not ye that speak, 

but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, 

and the father the child: 

and the children shall rise up against their parents, 

and cause them to be put to death.

22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: 

but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

23 But when they persecute you in this city, 

flee ye into another

for verily I say unto you, 

Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, 

till the Son of man be come.

24 The disciple is not above his master, 

nor the servant above his lord.

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, 

and the servant as his lord. 

If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub*, 

how much more shall they call them of his household?

26 Fear them not therefore

for there is nothing covered, 

that shall not be revealed

and hid, 

that shall not be known.

27 What I tell you in darkness, 

that speak ye in light: 

and what ye hear in the ear, 

that preach ye upon the housetops.

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul: 

but rather fear him 

which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? 

and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31 Fear ye not therefore, 

ye are of more value than many sparrows.

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, 

him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, 

him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: 

I came not to send peace, 

but a sword.

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, 

and the daughter against her mother, 

and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me 

is not worthy of me: 

and he that loveth son or daughter more than me 

is not worthy of me.

38 And he that taketh not his cross, 

and followeth after me, 

is not worthy of me.

39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: 

and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, 

and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet 

shall receive a prophet's reward; 

and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man 

shall receive a righteous man's reward.

42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones 

a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, 

verily I say unto you, 

he shall in no wise lose his reward.

If you're born again, then you're a disciple of CHRIST.

If you're not, it's time you become one.

For as one, you will know what to do, in life, and in work.

The Holy Spirit of God will guide you, on what Jesus taught, during His ministry.

As born again, we are in SERVICE to the LORD.

And with great delight in doing so.

Revelation 7:16-17

King James Version

16 They shall hunger no more, 

neither thirst any more; 

neither shall the sun light on them, 

nor any heat.

17 For the Lamb 

which is in the midst of the throne 

shall feed them, 

and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: 

and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

We must become pure.

We must become holy.

We must become perfect.

Mark 2:22

King James Version

22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: 

else the new wine doth burst the bottles, 

and the wine is spilled, 

and the bottles will be marred: 

but new wine must be put into new bottles.

We are to become born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

Let us be clean vessels.

That GOD may pour out His SPIRIT upon us.

For, the end days have been prophesied:

Joel 2:1

King James Version

2 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, 

and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: 

let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: 

for the day of the Lord cometh, 

for it is nigh at hand;

The day of the LORD will be great.

Joel 2:11

King James Version

11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: 

for his camp is very great: 

for he is strong that executeth his word: 

for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; 

and who can abide it?

We must turn to GOD, and repent, of our evil.

Joel 2:12-13

King James Version

12 Therefore also now, 

saith the Lord, 

turn ye even to me with all your heart

and with fasting, 

and with weeping, 

and with mourning:

13 And rend your heart, 

and not your garments, 

and turn unto the Lord your God: 

for he is gracious and merciful, 

slow to anger, 

and of great kindness, 

and repenteth him of the evil.

We need to be clean vessels, for GOD will pour out His SPIRIT, in those days.

We must be worthy of His Spirit.

Joel 2:28-31

King James Version

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, 

that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; 

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, 

your old men shall dream dreams, 

your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days 

will I pour out my spirit.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, 

blood, and fire, 

and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, 

and the moon into blood, 

before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

May we call upon the LORD, in those days.

Joel 2:32

King James Version

32 And it shall come to pass, 

that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered

for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance

as the Lord hath said, 

and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

We did say, it's all preparation now.

From the RAPTURE, the LORD JESUS will have His faithful meet Him up in the air.

And then the Tribulation will begin.

Where the supposedly powerful men will beg mountains to fall upon them.

Revelation 6:14-17

King James Version

14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; 

and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, 

and the great men, 

and the rich men, 

and the chief captains, 

and the mighty men, 

and every bondman, 

and every free man, 

hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, 

Fall on us, 

and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, 

and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; 

and who shall be able to stand?

Why wait for the terrible Tribulation, when GOD's giving us a chance to join His SON, during the RAPTURE?

We cannot be with GOD, the way we are now.

Our hearts, minds, bodies, and spirits need to be changed.

Conformed to CHRIST.

Sanctified by CHRIST.

Purified by CHRIST.

We cannot serve others well, with our defilement.

We must serve GOD, and others, guided by His SPIRIT.

We must be taught by GOD's SPIRIT.

1 Corinthians 3:16-17

King James Version

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,

 and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, 

him shall God destroy; 

for the temple of God is holy, 

which temple ye are.


JESUS was sinless, as He served the FATHER.

We are to be like CHRIST.

Humble, pure, obedient, loving, perfect.

It's time for humans to change, and be sanctified by CHRIST.

Let our hearts be devoted to GOD.

Let us seek the LORD's wisdom.

Let us not be conformed to the world's ways.

Romans 12:2

King James Version

2 And be not conformed to this world: 

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, 

that ye may prove what is that good, 

and acceptable, 

and perfect, 

will of God.

It's time to live right, by GOD.

And be worthy, in His eyes.

ENOUGH of that, which is not of GOD.

Every moment we're alive on earth, is a GIFT of GRACE.

A GIFT from GOD.

Giving us a chance to live right.

According to His commandments.

Let us be thankful for that GRACE, and MERCY.

GOD really loves us so!

His mercy, never-ending.

But we must be worthy, for when the LORD JESUS have His faithful meet Him up in the air.

There is no more time to waste.

We MUST change, conformed to CHRIST, following His commandments.

We are to refuse sin, in any form now.

It is absolute we do that.

We are to SEEK GOD, with all our hearts.

Psalm 14:2

King James Version

2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, 

to see if there were any that did understand, 

and seek God.

We are to really LOVE GOD, for the first time in our lives.

How can we know how to do that?

We follow the SON's example.

Of love, and obedience.

Of utmost dedication, and perfection.

The HOLY SPIRIT will show us how.


2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Matthew 6:13

King James Version

13 And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil: 

For thine is the kingdom, 

and the power, 

and the glory, 

for ever. 


Ever grasped the idea of GOD's power?

Of His power over EVERYTHING?

It's time we took notice, and listened to Scripture.

Here's but a tiny sampling of what GOD is capable of.

The world wouldn't be able to contain the LORD's accomplishments.

John 21:25

King James Version

25 And there are also many other things 

which Jesus did, the which, 

if they should be written every one

I suppose that even the world itself 

could not contain the books 

that should be written


We have no comprehension of what GOD can do, for those who love Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9

King James Version

9 But as it is written, 

Eye hath not seen, 

nor ear heard, 

neither have entered into the heart of man, 

the things which God hath prepared for them 

that love him.


Isaiah 9:6-7

King James Version

6 For unto us a child is born, 

unto us a son is given: 

and the government shall be upon his shoulder: 

and his name shall be called Wonderful, 


The mighty God, 

The everlasting Father, 

The Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace 

there shall be no end, 

upon the throne of David, 

and upon his kingdom, 

to order it, 

and to establish it with judgment 

and with justice from henceforth even for ever. 

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

ONE angel serving GOD is all it takes to bind Satan.

Revelation 20:1-3

King James Version

20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, 

having the key of the bottomless pit 

and a great chain in his hand.

2 And he laid hold on the dragon, 

that old serpent, 

which is the Devil, 

and Satan, 

and bound him a thousand years,

3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, 

and shut him up, 

and set a seal upon him, 

that he should deceive the nations no more, 

till the thousand years should be fulfilled: 

and after that he must be loosed a little season.

The PEACE that will come.

Isaiah 11:6-9

King James Version

6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, 

and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; 

and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; 

and a little child shall lead them.

7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; 

their young ones shall lie down together: 

and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, 

and the weaned child shall put his hand 

on the cockatrice' den.

9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: 

for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, 

as the waters cover the sea.

The King of Kings.

Revelation 19:11-16

King James Version

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; 

and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, 

and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 

and on his head were many crowns; 

and he had a name written, 

that no man knew, 

but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven 

followed him upon white horses, 

clothed in fine linen, 

white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, 

that with it he should smite the nations: 

and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: 

and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness 

and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh 

a name written, 

King Of Kings, 

And Lord Of Lords.


John 11:25-26

King James Version

25 Jesus said unto her, 

I am the resurrection, 

and the life: 

he that believeth in me, 

though he were dead, 

yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me 

shall never die. 

Believest thou this?

The WORD of GOD is all that will remain.

coming in the clouds 

with great power and glory.

27 And then shall he send his angels,

from the uttermost part of the earth 

to the uttermost part of heaven.

Only GOD knows the day and the hour of His SON's return.

Mark 13:32-33

King James Version

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, 

no, not the angels which are in heaven, 

neither the Son, 

but the Father.

33 Take ye heed, 

watch and pray: 

for ye know not when the time is.
