Welcome to the introduction of the Endtime Prophecy Net website and blog! This site is dedicated to presenting thought-provoking perspectives on Endtime prophetic events and other topics related to the Holy Scriptures and our Christian walk of faith.
Through this online ministry, it is our heartfelt desire to not only feed our website visitors with the sincere milk of God's Word, but to also motivate as many of you as possible, to do more for the Lord in the time that remains before His Return. For those of you who haven't already done so, it is high time for you to start thinking about your Eternal Fate. Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour? If so, what are you personally doing in your life right now in order to store up Eternal Rewards in Heaven? Have you become so caught up in this materialistic life, and the human rat race, that you have sorely neglected the real needs of your spirit? Consider the words spoken by our Lord, as well as written by the Apostle John in his first Epistle :
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
Matthew 6:19-21, KJV
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
1 John 2:15-16, KJV
As we are clearly told in the Bible, our works will surely follow us after this life has ended, whatever they might be. Isn't it important then that we each make sure that our works will be pleasing to the Lord? Consider the following verses:
"If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?"
Proverbs 24:12, KJV
". . . I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works."
Revelation 2:23b, KJV
"And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them."
Revelation 14:13, KJV
"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."
Revelation 20:12-13, KJV
While the Scriptures clearly tell us that we are not saved by our good works, the Lord Himself does tell us that people will know that we are truly saved Christians through the works that we perform for Him. In other words, they will see the positive fruit in our lives; and they will also see the Spiritual Light which we shine upon the world as we go about doing our work for Him by being little reflectors of the one True Light. Please consider these verses:
"Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
Matthew 7:20, KJV
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:16, KJV
"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
James 2:26, KJV
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house."
Matthew 5:14-15, KJV
In other words, we cannot and should not be ashamed of our Lord and the things which we have learned from His Word. We must be bold witnesses of our faith to the world at large, regardless of what they might think, say or do; just as Peter and John were in the Book of Acts:
"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus."
Acts 4:13, KJV
If we are ashamed of the Lord, He will most assuredly be ashamed of us as well at His Coming; but if we are not ashamed of our faith in Him, and boldly tell others about Him in some way, neither will He be ashamed of us. Here again are some verses for your consideration:
"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."
Mark 8:38, KJV
"For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."
Romans 10:11, KJV
It is interesting to note that the last verse above from Paul's Epistle to the Romans comes right after a pair of verses with which many Christians are familiar. In fact, they deal with our Salvation, and boldly proclaiming our faith:
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:9-10, KJV
As can be seen, it is by boldly proclaiming our faith with our mouth, or with the keyboard I might add, that we are truly letting our light shine before the world. Not only that, but we are building upon the right foundation, upon Jesus Christ, and we are performing works which will last into the next life. It is only these kinds of works which will not be burned by the Lord's fiery judgments; all others will be destroyed. Here are a few more verses for your consideration:
"According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire."
1 Corinthians 3:10-15, KJV
To continue then, at this site you will find many in-depth Scripture-filled articles which we hope will serve to expand your knowledge and understanding of God's Word. With this increased understanding, we also hope that your spiritual growth will be stimulated, and that you will be motivated to become a more fruitful branch for the Lord in whatever way He shows you. We don't want you to be like the dead branches which will be cast into the fire due to the fact that they were fruitless branches, as we see in these verses:
"Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit . . . If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned."
John 15:2, 6, KJV
We each have our calling from the Lord, and you surely have yours as well, if you are willing to accept it. For a much more in-depth look at this topic of service for the Lord, please consider reading such articles as the following :

The above articles are guaranteed to motivate you to do as much as you possibly can for the Lord in the time that remains.
In the majority of articles found on this site, we have done our best to magnify the Lord's Words above our own, for as King David wrote, the Lord has magnified His Word above His very Name. As Christian writers, shouldn't we do the same? :
Wherever possible, we have inserted Scriptures to support our views, so that you the reader can see why we believe and teach the things that we do. In fact, we believe so much in the power of quoting the Scriptures, that it may very well be that, collectively-speaking, perhaps half of the total content of all of our articles combined are solid Scripture. Hopefully, this point alone will give you a good idea of how important we believe it is to make sure that we are leading our readers to the Lord and to His Word, and not just to us, or to our human understanding of Biblical matters. God's Word is indeed powerful; no human word can compare to it; for as the Apostle Paul wrote :
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Hebrews 4:12, KJV
In addition, you will find a wealth of valuable Bible study tools on our King James Version Bible Study Tools page. For a more in-depth look at the history of this ministry, please also consider reading our article entitled "The Internet : Our Final Frontier; Your Last Chance?".
May God truly bless you as you begin to delve into the wonders of His magnificent Word.
