A DOCUMENT ON HUMAN FRATERNITY
FOR WORLD PEACE AND LIVING TOGETHER
Note from Pastor Kevin Lea (Rev 1 – February 24, 2019): Many are saying that this historic trip and associated agreement between Islam and the Pope will go down in history as the pivotal starting event which will ultimately bring about the formation of the global religion of the antichrist. I agree and have interspersed comments below that highlight to the reader the portions of this agreement that seem to be leading to prophetic fulfillment.
Faith leads a believer to see in the other a brother or sister to be supported and loved. Through faith in God, who has created the universe, creatures and all human beings (equal on account of his mercy), believers are called to express this human fraternity by safeguarding creation and the entire universe and supporting all persons, especially the poorest and those most in need.
Pastor Kevin (PK) – You will notice that Jesus, repentance and sin are never mentioned in this document, and therefore the gospel of salvation is also missing.
But this first paragraph of the introduction states that all people through faith in God (without defining which god) will experience mercy. This is a false promise since Jesus taught if a person did not have faith in Him, that they would die in their sins (meaning not receiving the mercy of God) – John 8:24-25. As one would expect, the Pope and Imam clearly do not believe the teachings of Jesus or the biblical gospel of salvation.
This transcendental value served as the starting point for several meetings characterized by a friendly and fraternal atmosphere where we shared the joys, sorrows and problems of our contemporary world. We did this by considering scientific and technical progress, therapeutic achievements, the digital era, the mass media and communications. We reflected also on the level of poverty, conflict and suffering of so many brothers and sisters in different parts of the world as a consequence of the arms race, social injustice, corruption, inequality, moral decline, terrorism, discrimination, extremism and many other causes.
PK – It is true that trillions of dollars are spent by the global military industrial complex in order to find new and better ways to make war. War has been a reality since the fall. The first war occurred when Cain killed his brother Abel (Genesis 4). The desire for war is a condition of the fallen human soul. The only way war can be stopped (in the family, country, world) is for the sinner to repent from his/her sin against the true God and to receive Jesus as their savior. When they do, God replaces coveting (source of war – James 4:1-4) with a heart of love and peace (1 John 3:10-15).
Sadly, the Pope and Imam are not calling the world to a saving faith in Jesus; therefore peace will not come as a result of their efforts displayed in this agreement. The Bible predicts that in the last days men promise peace but instead deliver death like the world has never known (1 Thes 5:1-3, Daniel 12:1); to the point that if Jesus delayed His second coming, there would be no life left on earth (Matthew 24:21-22).
From our fraternal and open discussions, and from the meeting that expressed profound hope in a bright future for all human beings, the idea of this Document on Human Fraternity was conceived. It is a text that has been given honest and serious thought so as to be a joint declaration of good and heartfelt aspirations. It is a document that invites all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity to unite and work together so that it may serve as a guide for future generations to advance a culture of mutual respect in the awareness of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers and sisters.
PK – The true Christian can have love for everyone, since we are commanded to do so by Jesus. But our love for others does not make them our fraternal brothers. Jesus did not consider the Scribes and Pharisees to be His “brothers”. Jesus did not even consider His own mother and half brothers to be His fraternal family unless they did the will of the Father – which is to believe in Him (Jesus) whom He (the Father) sent (John 6:29):
Matt 12:46-50 While He was still talking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. Then one said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.” But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” NKJV
Only those who have saving faith in Jesus are spiritual brothers and sisters (1 John 3:1-3).
In the name of God who has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and who has called them to live together as brothers and sisters, to fill the earth and make known the values of goodness, love and peace;
PK – Which “god” are they alluding to? The god of Islam? The god of Catholicism? What about the millions of Hindu gods? Or the no-god, god of the atheists?
In the beginning, man was created by the true God of the Bible to experience all the peace and joy that eternal life in the Garden of Eden could offer. But man sinned against God and corrupted themselves and the earth (Gen 3, Romans 8:18). Since then, God has not called man to live in a utopian earthly bliss because doing so is not possible; the earth is hopelessly corrupted with the effects of man’s sin. Instead, God has used His witness people to exhort others to turn away from their sin against Him and to have saving faith in God’s salvation plan. Only then can man hope to have access to the new heaven and new earth, which will restore the conditions that existed in the Garden of Eden when Jesus returns to put an end to man’s sin (Revelation 19-22).
In the name of innocent human life that God has forbidden to kill, affirming that whoever kills a person is like one who kills the whole of humanity, and that whoever saves a person is like one who saves the whole of humanity;
PK – The Bible does not say this. It does say that the blood of innocents pollutes the earth and will be judged by God (Numbers 35:30-34, 2 Kings 24:3-4). The Bible emphasizes the need to save the soul, not the body. What does it profit a man to extend his human life for a few more years if when he/she ultimately dies they find that they are excluded from eternal life (Mark 8:34-38). If man refuses to receive God’s forgiveness of sin, which only comes through saving faith in Jesus, they suffer for all of eternity, making the current sufferings of this world meaningless in comparison. The Pope professes to be a spiritual leader and yet says nothing about what it takes for a person to have eternal life, which amounts to spiritual malpractice.
This document glorifies man, concentrates on the temporal, ignores the laws of God, the consequences of man’s sin, and more importantly, the cure for sin – faith in Jesus.
This week has seen more revelations about the sexual abuse scandals of the Pope’s church, which include the rape of Catholic nuns by priests, and subsequent forced murdering of their babies in the womb if conception occurred. (https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/politics/a26236433/nuns-sex-slaves-abused-catholic-church-abortion/). How can the Pope fancy himself and this document as a gift to the world when he and his predecessors have covered up and in some cases participated is this abuse of women and children?
In the name of the poor, the destitute, the marginalized and those most in need whom God has commanded us to help as a duty required of all persons, especially the wealthy and of means;
In the name of orphans, widows, refugees and those exiled from their homes and their countries; in the name of all victims of wars, persecution and injustice; in the name of the weak, those who live in fear, prisoners of war and those tortured in any part of the world, without distinction;
In the name of peoples who have lost their security, peace, and the possibility of living together, becoming victims of destruction, calamity and war;
In the name of human fraternity that embraces all human beings, unites them and renders them equal;
In the name of this fraternity torn apart by policies of extremism and division, by systems of unrestrained profit or by hateful ideological tendencies that manipulate the actions and the future of men and women;
In the name of freedom, that God has given to all human beings creating them free and distinguishing them by this gift;
In the name of justice and mercy, the foundations of prosperity and the cornerstone of faith;
In the name of all persons of good will present in every part of the world;
In the name of God and of everything stated thus far; Al-Azhar al-Sharif and the Muslims of the East and West, together with the Catholic Church and the Catholics of the East and West, declare the adoption of a culture of dialogue as the path; mutual cooperation as the code of conduct; reciprocal understanding as the method and standard.
PK – Notice they again invoke the name of god without defining which one. The true God divided the nations and gave them their own boundaries when He confused the people’s languages at the tower of Babel (Genesis 11, Acts 17:26-28). He did so to prevent the evil of man from being unified in their effort to do evil.
There are so many forms of evil in the world, but there are also pockets of righteousness where those who fear the true God live. How would Hitler have been defeated if not for those who were not under his spell rising up to stop his carnage? If the world becomes unified in a way that excludes the true God and His salvation plan through Jesus, then there will be no one to stop the next Hitler. The Bible predicts that this will be the case (Rev 13:4).
Therefore, any attempt to undo the “the Babel effect” is actually playing into to the devil’s hands. God’s word warns against this deception by making it clear that the coming world ruler will promise peace but instead bring global suffering (Daniel 2:40-45, 7:19-28, Revelation 13-19). So the wise can learn from scripture that the Pope and Imam are really working for the devil, who is the god they are invoking throughout this document.
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment,
PK – The Pope and Imam are saying they believe in the same god. Sadly, they do; but it is not the true God they will meet on judgment day.
Matt 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven [to believe in the biblical Jesus]. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ NKJV
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
PK – They promise to save the environment but will actually end up destroying it. Jesus will come to destroy the kingdom of the antichrist because they are destroying the earth (Revelation 11:16-18)
We call upon intellectuals, philosophers, religious figures, artists, media professionals and men and women of culture in every part of the world, to rediscover the values of peace, justice, goodness, beauty, human fraternity and coexistence in order to confirm the importance of these values as anchors of salvation for all, and to promote them everywhere.
This Declaration, setting out from a profound consideration of our contemporary reality, valuing its successes and in solidarity with its suffering, disasters and calamities, believes firmly that among the most important causes of the crises of the modern world are a desensitized human conscience, a distancing from religious values and a prevailing individualism accompanied by materialistic philosophies that deify the human person and introduce worldly and material values in place of supreme and transcendental principles.
PK – Total hypocrisy from a Pope who presides over an organization that has pilfered, murdered, extorted, enslaved and otherwise used its power to enrich those who rule over the masses they impoverish.
While recognizing the positive steps taken by our modern civilization in the fields of science, technology, medicine, industry and welfare, especially in developed countries, we wish to emphasize that, associated with such historic advancements, great and valued as they are, there exists both a moral deterioration that influences international action and a weakening of spiritual values and responsibility. All this contributes to a general feeling of frustration, isolation and desperation leading many to fall either into a vortex of atheistic, agnostic or religious extremism, or into blind and fanatic extremism, which ultimately encourage forms of dependency and individual or collective self-destruction.
History shows that religious extremism, national extremism and also intolerance have produced in the world, be it in the East or West, what might be referred to as signs of a “third world war being fought piecemeal”.
PK – Here and below, the Imam is telling his 1.5 billion Sunni Muslim brothers to stop spreading the teachings of Mohammad by the sword. This will be a tough sell since the “Holy” Koran says otherwise.
For Bible prophecy to be fulfilled, Islam will drop its “religious extremism”, but not because the Imam tells them to. Instead, the currently unfulfilled prophetic wars of Psalm 83, Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39 will (when fulfilled) put an end to Islamic fanaticism. Why? – Because these attempts by Islamic nations and their allies to war against the Jews in order to take the land of Israel and her spoils for themselves will fail; and instead they themselves will be slaughtered. Thus, Muslims will no longer be able to chant that there is no god but Allah and Mohammad is his prophet. After the dust settles from these soon-coming wars, the surviving Muslims will dust off this Kum Ba Yah document, become moderate, and otherwise fall under the control of the coming global religion of the antichrist.
In several parts of the world and in many tragic circumstances these signs have begun to be painfully apparent, as in those situations where the precise number of victims, widows and orphans is unknown. We see, in addition, other regions preparing to become theatres of new conflicts, with outbreaks of tension and a build-up of arms and ammunition, and all this in a global context overshadowed by uncertainty, disillusionment, fear of the future, and controlled by narrow-minded economic interests.
We likewise affirm that major political crises, situations of injustice and lack of equitable distribution of natural resources – which only a rich minority benefit from, to the detriment of the majority of the peoples of the earth – have generated, and continue to generate, vast numbers of poor, infirm and deceased persons. This leads to catastrophic crises that various countries have fallen victim to despite their natural resources and the resourcefulness of young people which characterize these nations. In the face of such crises that result in the deaths of millions of children – wasted away from poverty and hunger – there is an unacceptable silence on the international level.
It is clear in this context how the family as the fundamental nucleus of society and humanity is essential in bringing children into the world, raising them, educating them, and providing them with solid moral formation and domestic security. To attack the institution of the family, to regard it with contempt or to doubt its important role, is one of the most threatening evils of our era.
PK – Educate them how? The Bible would answer: with the truth of the word of God, His commandments, and all that the prophets and apostles have written on how one is to repent and have saving faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior. But the coming global religion of the antichrist will consider this to be religious extremism and forbid it on pain of death. Instead, children will be taught that all religions worship the same god and are to be affirmed as equal by all. This will be the big lie that will damn the souls of those who believe it.
We affirm also the importance of awakening religious awareness and the need to revive this awareness in the hearts of new generations through sound education and an adherence to moral values and upright religious teachings. In this way we can confront tendencies that are individualistic, selfish, conflicting, and also address radicalism and blind extremism in all its forms and expressions.
PK – Emphasis mine. This will be what brings persecution to those who put their trust in the fact that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and that no one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6); a truly radical but truthful way of life.
The first and most important aim of religions is to believe in God, to honour Him and to invite all men and women to believe that this universe depends on a God who governs it. He is the Creator who has formed us with His divine wisdom and has granted us the gift of life to protect it. It is a gift that no one has the right to take away, threaten or manipulate to suit oneself.
PK – But the Pope and Imam are writing this with the expressed intent to make the peoples of the world comply with it even though they may disagree.
I do not agree that all religions worship the same god. Dear Pope and Imam, am I allowed to lovingly continue spreading the gospel of Jesus and proclaim that He is the only way a man/woman can be saved from sin and have eternal life in heaven with the true God?
The answer will become very clear in the not too distant future. When the answer does come, true Christians can point the executioners to this paragraph, but it won’t do any good.
Indeed, everyone must safeguard this gift of life from its beginning up to its natural end. We therefore condemn all those practices that are a threat to life such as genocide, acts of terrorism, forced displacement, human trafficking, abortion and euthanasia. We likewise condemn the policies that promote these practices.
Moreover, we resolutely declare that religions must never incite war, hateful attitudes, hostility and extremism, nor must they incite violence or the shedding of blood. These tragic realities are the consequence of a deviation from religious teachings. They result from a political manipulation of religions and from interpretations made by religious groups who, in the course of history, have taken advantage of the power of religious sentiment in the hearts of men and women in order to make them act in a way that has nothing to do with the truth of religion. This is done for the purpose of achieving objectives that are political, economic, worldly and short-sighted. We thus call upon all concerned to stop using religions to incite hatred, violence, extremism and blind fanaticism, and to refrain from using the name of God to justify acts of murder, exile, terrorism and oppression. We ask this on the basis of our common belief in God who did not create men and women to be killed or to fight one another, nor to be tortured or humiliated in their lives and circumstances. God, the Almighty, has no need to be defended by anyone and does not want His name to be used to terrorize people.
PK – This last sentence does seem to be directed toward Islamic fundamentalism. As I said above, this will be realized some time in the future and thus allow the formation of the global religion of the antichrist.
This Document, in accordance with previous International Documents that have emphasized the importance of the role of religions in the construction of world peace, upholds the following:
– The firm conviction that authentic teachings of religions invite us to remain rooted in the values of peace; to defend the values of mutual understanding, human fraternity and harmonious coexistence; to re-establish wisdom, justice and love; and to reawaken religious awareness among young people so that future generations may be protected from the realm of materialistic thinking and from dangerous policies of unbridled greed and indifference that are based on the law of force and not on the force of law;
– Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.
PK – Here the Pope is saying that “god” willed all of the religions of the world. I agree, because the god that the Pope and Imam are referring to is actually Satan.
The true God, the God of the Bible, does not will people to believe in the false gods of the numerous religions of the world. This is why the first two of the Ten Commandments emphasize that we are to only worship Him, and are not to make any idols (Exodus 20). The true God also emphasizes that there are no gods besides Him.
Isa 44:6-7 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God. And who can proclaim [prophecy] as I do? Then let him declare it and set it in order for Me, since I appointed the ancient people. And the things that are coming and shall come, let them show these to them. NKJV
But Satan has created the various false religions, including Catholicism and Islam. He has done so to deceive, create chaos, and otherwise destroy unsuspecting souls. But now, as the end approaches, Satan’s final plan is to unite his religious puppets into one family. Then Satan will possess the coming global leader and attempt to force all the people still alive on earth to worship him (Revelation 13). Satan has desired to take God’s place in worship since he fell from heaven (Isaiah 14:12-16, Ezekiel 28:11-19).
This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;
– Justice based on mercy is the path to follow in order to achieve a dignified life to which every human being has a right;
– Dialogue, understanding and the widespread promotion of a culture of tolerance, acceptance of others and of living together peacefully would contribute significantly to reducing many economic, social, political and environmental problems that weigh so heavily on a large part of humanity;
– Dialogue among believers means coming together in the vast space of spiritual, human and shared social values and, from here, transmitting the highest moral virtues that religions aim for. It also means avoiding unproductive discussions;
– The protection of places of worship – synagogues, churches and mosques – is a duty guaranteed by religions, human values, laws and international agreements. Every attempt to attack places of worship or threaten them by violent assaults, bombings or destruction, is a deviation from the teachings of religions as well as a clear violation of international law;
– Terrorism is deplorable and threatens the security of people, be they in the East or the West, the North or the South, and disseminates panic, terror and pessimism, but this is not due to religion, even when terrorists instrumentalize it. It is due, rather, to an accumulation of incorrect interpretations of religious texts and to policies linked to hunger, poverty, injustice, oppression and pride. This is why it is so necessary to stop supporting terrorist movements fuelled by financing, the provision of weapons and strategy, and by attempts to justify these movements even using the media. All these must be regarded as international crimes that threaten security and world peace. Such terrorism must be condemned in all its forms and expressions;
– The concept of citizenship is based on the equality of rights and duties, under which all enjoy justice. It is therefore crucial to establish in our societies the concept of full citizenship and reject the discriminatory use of the term minorities which engenders feelings of isolation and inferiority. Its misuse paves the way for hostility and discord; it undoes any successes and takes away the religious and civil rights of some citizens who are thus discriminated against;
PK – Except for the Vatican of course which is surrounded by a wall that prevents people from becoming residents and citizens upon their request to be treated as such.
– Good relations between East and West are indisputably necessary for both. They must not be neglected, so that each can be enriched by the other’s culture through fruitful exchange and dialogue. The West can discover in the East remedies for those spiritual and religious maladies that are caused by a prevailing materialism.
PK – Now everyone get into your lotus position and chant, “Ummmm” until your need for a car goes away. Of course you can call UBER and the Pope will come with his car or jet to take you where you need to go.
And the East can find in the West many elements that can help free it from weakness, division, conflict and scientific, technical and cultural decline. It is important to pay attention to religious, cultural and historical differences that are a vital component in shaping the character, culture and civilization of the East. It is likewise important to reinforce the bond of fundamental human rights in order to help ensure a dignified life for all the men and women of East and West, avoiding the politics of double standards;
– It is an essential requirement to recognize the right of women to education and employment, and to recognize their freedom to exercise their own political rights. Moreover, efforts must be made to free women from historical and social conditioning that runs contrary to the principles of their faith and dignity. It is also necessary to protect women from sexual exploitation and from being treated as merchandise or objects of pleasure or financial gain. Accordingly, an end must be brought to all those inhuman and vulgar practices that denigrate the dignity of women. Efforts must be made to modify those laws that prevent women from fully enjoying their rights;
PK – Last night I listened (on a PBS show) to a former nun who was raped by a priest. The church hierarchy, and even her fellow nuns, did everything they could to silence her. But she left and has been speaking against this pervasive, protected evil ever since.
– The protection of the fundamental rights of children to grow up in a family environment, to receive nutrition, education and support, are duties of the family and society. Such duties must be guaranteed and protected so that they are not overlooked or denied to any child in any part of the world. All those practices that violate the dignity and rights of children must be denounced. It is equally important to be vigilant against the dangers that they are exposed to, particularly in the digital world, and to consider as a crime the trafficking of their innocence and all violations of their youth;
– The protection of the rights of the elderly, the weak, the disabled, and the oppressed is a religious and social obligation that must be guaranteed and defended through strict legislation and the implementation of the relevant international agreements.
To this end, by mutual cooperation, the Catholic Church and Al-Azhar announce and pledge to convey this Document to authorities, influential leaders, persons of religion all over the world, appropriate regional and international organizations, organizations within civil society, religious institutions and leading thinkers. They further pledge to make known the principles contained in this Declaration at all regional and international levels, while requesting that these principles be translated into policies, decisions, legislative texts, courses of study and materials to be circulated.
PK – Wow! Make this document a required course throughout the world. I suspect that it will not be long before this is adopted in all public schools, including those in America.
No thanks, I will stick with the Biblical Jesus and His promises to all those who trust Him for their salvation; who are looking for a better country and life that will never end (Rev 21-22).
Al-Azhar and the Catholic Church ask that this Document become the object of research and reflection in all schools, universities and institutes of formation, thus helping to educate new generations to bring goodness and peace to others, and to be defenders everywhere of the rights of the oppressed and of the least of our brothers and sisters.
In conclusion, our aspiration is that:
this Declaration may constitute an invitation to reconciliation and fraternity among all believers, indeed among believers and non-believers, and among all people of good will;
this Declaration may be an appeal to every upright conscience that rejects deplorable violence and blind extremism; an appeal to those who cherish the values of tolerance and fraternity that are promoted and encouraged by religions;
this Declaration may be a witness to the greatness of faith in God that unites divided hearts and elevates the human soul;
this Declaration may be a sign of the closeness between East and West, between North and South, and between all who believe that God has created us to understand one another, cooperate with one another and live as brothers and sisters who love one another.
This is what we hope and seek to achieve with the aim of finding a universal peace that all can enjoy in this life.
Abu Dhabi, 4 february 2019
The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar
Summary Note from Pastor Kevin Lea
In the above comments, I did not discuss the doctrine of the rapture of the remnant church which will occur some time before the formation of the global kingdom of the antichrist. The Bible is clear to me that God’s true church must be taken to be with Him before the antichrist can be revealed. When the antichrist then takes power, he will usher in a time of trouble that the world has never seen (Daniel 12:1, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18, 2 Thessalonians 2, Revelation 3:10). Therefore, the implementation of this Pope/Imam document will not be completely realized until we are gone. But this does not mean that the globalists will not try to implement it while true believers are still here, and bring persecution to anyone who is apposed to them.
Biblical Christians who resist this plan will do so because they are armed with the prophetic word of God, which exposes the diabolical scheme behind it. I believe this is why Satan has raised up false shepherds like Rick Warren and others who have led millions astray by downplaying the teaching of biblical prophecy from a dispensational view.
As a result, there are very few who are being trained to see this Pope/Imam document for what it is. The “church” is losing its savor, which was also prophesied to occur in the last days (2 Tim 4:1-5, 2 Thes 2, Rev 3:14-22). The world is quickly turning away from the truth and believing the lie. True Christians are being hated and persecuted all over the world. Most pastors have abandoned the call to preach the gospel that Paul preached. God said that the day would come where He would remove “the church” from the vine and graft the Jews back in as His witness people (Romans 11) in time for playing their role during the Great Tribulation.
Since hardly anyone is preaching the true gospel anymore, and fewer still want to hear it and respond, and most hate those who are obeying God to proclaim it anyway, I believe the day is very near when God will catch-up (rapture) His faithful remnant church to heaven.
He will then allow the “left behind” fake church to finish playing their part in the global religion of the antichrist, while the Jews experience a roller coaster of end times prophetic fulfillment until at the moment their true Messiah returns, when they look on Him whom they had pierced and proclaim, “Blessed is He (Jesus) who comes in the name of the Lord”, and all Israel is saved (Zech 12:10-11, Luke 13:35, Romans 11:26-27).
Be comforted true believer, we are going home soon!
Rev 3:10-12 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name. NKJV
