The following is a sampling of matters that the Members, Staff and Mentors of this Site believe in from the Holy Scriptures. This list is by no means complete, but we feel it will be of help to those wishing to make a study of the Scriptures to assist members, individuals, the nation, and the world to prepare for the end of this age, so that those that are led by God may usher in the Second Coming of Christ and so that those that are led by God may usher in the Final Restoration when God establishes Christ's Glorious Kingdom, Paradise upon the earth, when the Eternal City of New Jerusalem will appear with Christ and His Angels when Christ Returns.
We believe in the God of the Bible (Exodus 3:6-14)
We believe the Holy Bible to be the Word of God. We believe in its History, Covenants, and Prophecy (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21).
We believe in the Bible account of Creation (Genesis 1 & 2).
We believe in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God, the Word made flesh (John 1:14).
We believe Jesus Christ died for us (Romans 5:8); also, that He was raised from the dead (Romans 6:4; Revelation 1:18).
We believe in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary (Romans 5:11); not only for Israel, but for the sins of the world (I John 2:2).
We believe Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven (Mark 16:19; Hebrews 8:1).
We believe in the literal return of Jesus Christ (Zechariah 14:4; Acts 1:9-11) when He shall take the Throne of David (Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:32-33) and rule on earth forever.
We believe that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
We believe in the Holy Spirit and His mission (John 16:7-14; Acts 2).
We believe salvation is by grace through faith, and it is the gift of God, and not of works (Ephesians 2:8-9). It must be preached (Romans 10:14) and it is necessary for all (Romans 3:23).
We believe that water baptism is ordained of God for all that believe (Matthew 3:13-15; Romans 6:3-5; Acts 2:37-39).
We believe in the ordinance of the communion as established by Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 10:16).
We believe in prayer, and whatever the immediate purpose, prayer should be that God's Will be done on earth (Matthew 6:10; I John 5:14-15). We must forgive to be forgiven (Matthew 6:14). The Holy Spirit will help us to pray (Romans 8:26-27). If we ask in faith and in the Name of Jesus Christ, He will hear (John 15:16; James 1:6-7).
We believe that God chose out a special people unto Himself to be His servants and those servants were to be the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob called "Israel" (Deuteronomy 7:6; Psalm 105:6; Isaiah 44:1-2).
We believe the Bible with God's law, statutes and judgments was given to Israel (Exodus 20; Psalm 147:19-20) and through Israel's prophets came the inspired Scriptures (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21).
We believe civil law was given by God to Israel (Deuteronomy 4:1-2). The law was given for Israel's good (Deuteronomy 5:33). God commands us to obey civil law (Romans 13:1-7).
We believe that one day out of seven is the Sabbath of the Lord (Exodus 20:10) and that Israel was to keep it (Deuteronomy 5:15) as a sign between Israel and the Lord (Exodus 31:16-17). We believe Jesus Christ became our Sabbath (Hebrew 4:8; Colossians 2:16-17). (Hebrew 4:9- There remaineth therefore a rest (Gr. Sabbatismos) to the people of God).
We believe Israel was to be punished if God's laws for the nation were disregarded (Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Isaiah 42:24; Amos 3:2).
We believe that the New Covenant was made with Israel (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:8-12) which meant Israel was to become Christian and that Jesus Christ confirmed that Covenant (Galatians 3:16-17; Romans 15:8).
We believe that if we keep the covenants of God and do them that we will then prosper in all things that we do. (Deuteronomy 29:9).
We believe that if we delight in the Lord that he shall give us the desires of our heart. (Psalms 37:4).
We believe that those that receive a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and we believe that those that receive a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. (Matthew 10:41).
We believe that Israel was promised redemption (Psalm 130:7-8; Isaiah 52:3; Hosea 13:9-14); that Jesus Christ came to Israel (Matthew 10:6); that He was recognized as the Redeemer of Israel (Galatians 4:5; Titus 2:14), and His death and resurrection accomplished that redemption (Galatians 4:4-5; Hebrews 9:12).
We believe that after Jesus Christ's death and resurrection Israel was to be called by a new name (Isaiah 62:2). Israel was not to be remembered by her old name (Hosea 2:17); and, the new name was to be the Lord's Name (II Chronicles 7:14) which would be CHRISTIAN (Christ man) (Acts 11:26; I Peter 4:16).
We believe that each individual, of Israel or not, must be born of water and of the Spirit to be a Christian (John 3:3-8; I Peter 1:23).
We believe in an existing Satan, who is called the serpent (Genesis 3:1; Revelation 12:9); who has power with devils and men (Matthew 12:22; I Peter 5:8); who has a people who will not hear God (John 8:44-47), some of whom deceive people as "ministers of righteousness" (II Corinthians 11:13-15).
We believe that Jesus Christ has broken the power of Satan (Hebrews 2:14) and His Name makes devils impotent against Christians (Luke 10:17).
We believe that God gives us power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and that nothing by any means will hurt us. (Luke 10:19).
We believe that we have and or will overcome by the Blood of the Lamb, by the Word of Our Testimony, and by not loving our lives unto the death. (Revelation 12:11).
We believe that if we overcome and keep God's Works to the end that God will give us power over the nations, that God will give us the power to rule the nations with a rod of iron, as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as Jesus received of His Father, and we believe that God will give us the morning star (the True Jesus Christ). (Revelation 2:26-2:28).
We believe that we must keep the saying of Christ that we may never taste of death. (John 8:52).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ along with His followers are at battle with Satan and his followers (Ephesians 6:11-19): And that Jesus Christ is the victor in this "battle" (Isaiah 28:21-22; 45:17-25; Ezekiel 38-39; Hosea 13-14; Joel 3:9-21; Micah 7:16-20; Zechariah 14:9; Malachi 4; Matthew 28:18; Luke 19:27; I Corinthians 15:24-28; Philippians 2:9-11; II Peter 3:7-13; Revelation 11:18; 15:4; 19:11-15 and others).
We believe in the resurrection of the dead as prophesied (Job 19:25-27; Hosea 13:13-14; John 5:29); as proven (I Peter 1:3); as taught by the Scripture (Acts 24:14-15; I Corinthians 15:11-26) and that the resurrected will reign with Christ (II Timothy 2:11-12) for ever (Revelation 22:1-5).
We believe the seventh trump sounds after the tribulation (Matthew 24: 29-31). Paul wrote his second letter to the Thessalonians because he knew the first had been misunderstood, concerning Jesus Christ's second return. Paul then gives two signs which will be present when the Day of the Lord comes. Those signs being the apostasy and the man of lawlessness. Neither of these signs were present at that time.
Apostasy means giving up or renouncing of one's professed principles, or faith. This will come to pass when the religious lamb (false messiah) of Revelation 13:11 comes to pass. He will look like the Lamb of God, but his voice is of the dragon, for he is the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan (Revelation 12:9). When the False Christ (the antichrist, the Spurious Messiah) stands in the holy place performing in the sight of Christians, the pre-tribulation-rapture-Christian shall think it is Jesus Christ coming to rapture them away. It is the duty of the elect to stand and witness in the synagogues, allowing the Holy Spirit to give His Message to the world through those that will speak by the Holy Spirit as God will move those that will speak to speak by the Holy Spirit. (Mark 13:9).
We believe that Jesus Christ is our spiritual Husband. We believe that we must remain a spiritual virgin until Christ returns (II Corinthians 11:2). For Jesus Christ Himself said; "Woe to them that are with child in those days!" (Mark 13:17). If your spiritual Husband has been on a long journey and finds you with child when He returns, then you have been impregnated (deceived) with the mark of the false messiah.
