1. Who is God? and who is the Lord Jesus Christ?

In Hinduism, if a person or a spirit, takes care of you, heals you, gives you good health, loves you, good to you, does all kinds of favors to you, then, that person or the spirit, is officially your God. If Christians also accept Jesus Christ as God for these kinds of reasons, we are not different from Hindus, and our God is not different from Hindu gods, and he is another Jesus, false Christ, and anti-Christ. The true God is righteous and holy; God exists from the everlasting past and must exist unto the everlasting future. God must be the Spirit, who has the Omni-powers, and he must have created all things that came into existence. If our Jesus Christ is God because of these reasons, then he is the true God. The true God Jesus Christ must be in Spirit, but not in human body under a Jewish robe. "Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." So now, he is in the world as omnipotent invisible Spirit God, converting sinners from their sins. He does not compromise sins for any reason. We must stop sinning and it is salvation. Saved people go to heaven. Jesus Christ is God Almighty. If you like to study the details, please refer to this link: "Jesus Christ is God." Worship the true God in truth and in spirit. The true God is Jesus Christ in the Spirit.

2. It appears as God lost all things; but it is the plan of God.

In the beginning, God the Father has created all things by Jesus Christ, including Lucifer the archangel. When Lucifer knew that his coveted status will be given to the bride of the Lamb, which is among people, but not to him, he wanted to destroy the plan of God. So, he deceived Eve. Adam and Eve disobeyed God. So, God throw them out from the garden of Eden into the world. Adam had two sons, Cain and Abel. God favored Abel, but Cain killed Abel, and it appears that God had a set-back. Then God had to destroy his creation except Noah and his family. It appears another set-back. Then, God took Abraham for him, then Isaac, and then Jacob. Then God put up with the children of Jacob, despite what they have done to Joseph, and a few other incidents. Then God called king David as the man of his own heart, despite his dealings with Bathsheba and her husband Uriah. Then Israel was split into two, because of king Solomon. It appears that nothing was going right. God destroyed the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, because of their repeated disobedience. It seems that Satan was wining. But, if everything happens according to the plan of God, then it is not a win for Satan. Then Ezekiel says in, 37:15-22 (Scripture below), that God unites Judah and Israel as one.

Ezekiel 37:15-22. 15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. 18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not show us what thou meanest by these? 19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. 20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. 21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: So, they will be one group of people, without a kingdom. It is God's plan.

3. God splits the church, one in the world, other to heaven.

Let us look how the church grew from the beginning. "Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls." It took momentum and people join the church in thousands. Miracles happened; church grew despite resistance. Then look at what happens in Acts 5:1-18, the scripture is below. In this, God killed Ananias and his wife Sapphira, for telling a lie to the Holy Ghost. 11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things. .... 13 And of the rest, durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. The people talk very highly about the church, but nobody joined them out of fear, since nobody want to be killed even by God. So, it seems that God did not care about church growth, but he wants the church to be pure. "Ephesians 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 ..., unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure." So, the true church was kept small and pure by the power of God. But the outside religious church strives always for church growth, in number, money, fame, and so on; and they do it all in the name of God; and not only God allows it; but it is the plan of God. The kingdom of God in heaven is for his small pure Church. So, there are two churches; one is prospering, which we see on the outside; it is the church of the world. But the Spiritual Church is hidden inside, small, but getting righteous and pure. It is to inherit the kingdom of God.

Acts 5:1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it, at the apostles' feet. 3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. 7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. 8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. 9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. 10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. 11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things. 12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch. 13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. 14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) 15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. 16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one. 17 Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, 18 And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.

4. God lives in the hearts of his people, but not in churches.

Let us look at our churches. I was familiar with Roman Catholic churches, few Orthodox Churches, and a few other. When I say churches, I also refer to the society as well as the huge, strong, humongous, buildings. In my native place, a Catholic church has few huge brass bells, two of them are about 20 feet tall; when they ring, it sounds like the thunder of God comes down from heaven to the town. They were too loud, but magnanimous. "Acts 7: 48 says, Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, 49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;" It looks like that these magnanimous buildings amounts to nothing for God. Further God says that he lives in his people, but not in buildings. "Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. 1 Corinthians 3:16 also says, Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" So, God will not be in churches; instead, he lives in the hearts of his people. If God is not in the churches, then, who is in the churches, which are the worship places? Will it be Satan, to deceive people?

5. Satan is in the world churches; God is in the Spirit Church.

God had already made Satan as the ruler of the world; and now, God allowed him to be god in churches also. It is in "2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." So, Satan shows himself as God sitting in all churches and receive the worship of Christians. He also preaches another gospel, gives another spirit to Christians, showing himself as Jesus Christ, and the bible calls him as another Jesus. He will be revealed at the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is in "2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:" God will expose Satan just before the second coming of Jesus Christ and he will destroy Satan at his coming. The true Spirit Church, which is the body of Christ, is well established by God. It is spiritual, and so, common people cannot not see it. But this church will go to heaven to be with God forever. Religious church will be glorious in the world, and the spirit church will be in heaven.

6. Judah and Israel as Jews, Jews and Gentiles as One.

We just saw in Ezekiel 37:15-22 that God unites Judah and Israel as one people that is Jews. And, God has created the whole world, but not the Jews only. Please read Ephesians 2:10-17 (Scripture below). "14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us (Jews and Gentiles); 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, ..." Here, the Jews and gentiles were made one. "1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit." So, God has made Jews and Gentiles as one in his Spirit body, his church; but it is not the world churches. So, the organized ceremonial churches in this world are under Satan; and they have many denominations.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

7. Name is Second Coming, but Jesus Christ comes four times.

After the resurrection and ascension of Jesus, he was made Lord and Christ as in Acts 2:36, and he was anointed as God as in Hebrews 1:8-9. "Acts 2:36 ... God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." As soon as he become God, he was sent to us first to turn us away from our sins. It is his first second coming, and so, Jesus Christ is with us now, not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, dealing with us individually person to person, through our Spirit or through our conscience. It is in Acts 3:26. It says, "God having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." So, now he is dealing with us about our sins and iniquities. If we are born again, he is dealing with us through our Spirits; but if we are the people of the world, God deals with our conscience. If we keep resisting him, he will give us a final warning on one day. It is in Hebrews 3:7-15 (Find scripture below). More scriptures explain this. The visit of Jesus Christ on this day will be most important in our life for eternity. If we harden our hearts this day, Jesus Christ will reject us forever. This will be his first "second coming", it is person to person. If he has not visited you yet, he may visit you any day. This will be the only "second coming" we will face. The rest of the "second comings" will be latter.

"Hebrews 3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14... 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation."

The next "second coming" is to rapture his church. Jesus Christ will first raise the dead that are in him. Then he catches them up, who are alive and remain in him, and he will take them in the clouds. We call it as "Rapture." The word rapture is not in the Bible. Churches preach that the rapture may happen at any time now. But scripture says that it will not happen until Satan is revealed, who shows himself as God and is worshipped. Bible says, Satan will not be revealed at least for another 300 years. There may not be many in the rapture, and the world may not even recognize the event. So, rapture will not be noticed. However, it will be at least 300 years away, but not now.

The third "second coming" is to reign in the Millennium. Soon after the rapture, there will be great tribulation. Jews and true Christians will be crushed almost to nothing. At the end of tribulation, Jews will recognize that Jesus Christ is their Messiah and will call upon him to save them. Christians will realize that the true God is not the venerated man Jesus Christ, but God is the Spirit Jesus Christ, and will call upon him. As God, Jesus Christ will strike the persecutors and deliver the Jews and Christians. He will come with his saints and reign in the promised land for a thousand years. It will be the third "second coming." Satan will be bound and cast into the bottomless pit for these thousand years. Millennium is only on the land promised to Abraham, but it will not be on the entire world.

8. Last or fourth 'Second Coming' is to End and to Judge the World.

His fourth and the last "second coming" is to end this world. Our heaven and earth, which is the present solar system, will be dissolved by fire. Jesus Christ will bring a new earth and new heavens. That day will come as a thief in the night, as men least expect it. However, it will not happen for another 2100 years, according to scripture. Then, Jesus Christ will judge everyone in truth and in righteousness, according to their works. Righteous people will be taken to heaven, evil people will be cast into hell and then thrown in the lake of fire. It is the end of the present world, and the beginning of eternal kingdom of God. The final grand finale statement of the Lord God Almighty Jesus Christ is this. It is "Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." Jesus Christ says that our inheritance to the heaven depends on our works and by doing his commandments. But Satan the devil, another Jesus, and his preachers will fight with tooth and nails against works and obeying his commandments. If I ask you; "have you received, or accepted, the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior?", I know that your answer will be a big yes, from all of you. I will believe your answer. But the right question is this, "Does your Jesus Christ tell you to obey him, or not to obey him, for your eternal life?" If your Jesus Christ tells you to obey him, he is the true Jesus Christ; if not he is Satan, another Jesus Christ. Let me ask you another way. "Are you saved by works or not by works?" If you say not by works, but by grace, then your Jesus Christ is another Jesus Christ the devil, and you will go to the lake of fire on the judgment day. So, please believe the word of the true Jesus Christ. He says that he will "give every man according as his work shall be. ... Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city," and this city is heaven. So, escape from false preachers of another Jesus, who is Satan, and escape hell. Obey the true Jesus Christ. Then, you will inherit the kingdom of God in heaven.
