21    Signs    of    the    Last    Days     is    an    easy-to-read    and    easy-to-understand consolidation   of   last   day   signs   prophesied   in   the   Bible.      Each   sign   is   supported   by (1)    biblical    scripture,    (2)    referenced    non-biased    sources,    and    (3)    analysis    of ongoing volatile changes that are occurring globally.  
Pride       Our   pride   is   a   “slippery   slope”   in   that   it   provides   a   deceitful   feeling   of pleasure   derived   from   perceived   wisdom,   strengths   (attributes),   and/or   wealth (possessions).     This   study   will   assist   in   the   realization   (and   heart’s   transformation) in that only Jesus Christ is worthy of glory because of what He has done for us.
God   designed   our   minds   with   an   ability   to   store   and   retrieve   information   and experiences   via   our   memory.      Our   dependence   upon   this   function   is   much   more important   than   we   realize.      Simply   stated,   it   is   required   for   human   existence…like breathing.      When   you   think   about   it,   we   utilize   our   memory   continuously   moment- by-moment.      In   addition,   our   memory   is   a   foundational   component   of   our   ability   to learn, and facilitates decision making. Memories    provides   a   scripture-based   answer   to   the   following   question:   Do   our memories go with us when we die? 
Is Jesus the Messiah or a Fraud? Each   person   must   decide:   Is   Jesus   Christ   the   Son   of   God,   the   Messiah,   the Anointed   One,   and   Lord—or   was   he   a   fraud?      Making   a   choice   is   not   an   option;   it was not His intent; and each person’s decision has eternal consequences.
Judgment vs. Spiritual Discernment This   writing   explores   our   propensity   to   judge   others   via   our   flesh   (including   the negative   consequences).      It   also   provides   a   means   for   self-analysis;   and   explains how we can seek Holy-Spirit directed discernment.
Living Water Jesus   said   "He   who   believes   in   Me,   as   the   scripture   has   said,   out   of   his   heart   will flow   rivers   of   living   water."   (John   7:38)      This   video   explains   and   depicts   how   this spiritual transformation occurs within our heart and soul.
Backsliding This   insightful   lesson   is   for   all   born-again   Christians   who   have   decided   to   walk away   from   their   faith   in   Jesus   Christ;   those   who   have   inadvertently   lost   their   way and   returned   to   their   previous   life   in   sin;   and   those   who   have   a   burden   for   a backslidden Christian who needs help.
Managing Anxiety   During   the   Pandemic    defines   the   difference   between   fear   and anxiety;     explains     how     our     anxiety-based     thoughts     can     create     multiple psychological    and    physical    symptoms;    and    provides    a    means    to    manage    our anxiety.

8 Steps to Spiritual Maturity This lesson is intended for those who:   Would like to learn more about Jesus Christ.    Are born again.     Desire spiritual growth in Christ.      Seek a greater understanding of themselves.        Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,         for they shall be filled.  Matthew 5:6
Body,   Heart,   Soul,   and   Spirit   is   written   for   those   who   are   struggling   with   their   sinful flesh;   for   those   who   are   tired   of   the   darkness,   and   bondage,   and   pain;   and   for   those who desire a behavioral transformation from within.  Gaining   victory   over   the   flesh   is   facilitated   by   understanding   the   distinct   functions   of the   body,   heart,   soul,   and   spirit;   by   gaining   insight   into   the   clandestine   works   of   the flesh; and by a resolute heart.  
God’s Grace and the Hardened Heart This    lesson    explains    the    functions,    characteristics,    and    consequences    of    two opposing   conditions   of   our   heart   described   in   the   Bible:   one   is   a   hardened   heart, the   other   is   a   broken   and   contrite   heart.      The   intent   is   to   illuminate   the   importance of   being   aware   of   the   spiritual   condition   of   your   heart;   to   recognize   why   we   (and others)   do   what   we   do;   and   to   witness   the   transformational   influence   of   God’s grace upon a hardened heart. Keep   your   heart   with   all   diligence,   for   out   of   it   spring   the   issues   of   life.      Proverbs 4:23
The Power of Forgiveness Forgiveness   is   more   powerful   than   we   realize.      However,   forgiveness   can   be difficult   because   the   scars   in   our   heart   and   soul   can   be   deep   and   calloused.     This   writing   explains   the   multiple   benefits   of   forgiveness—and   the   numerous consequences   of   holding   onto   unforgiveness.      When   forgiveness   is   based   upon a   sincere   heart   and   bolstered   by   the   Holy   Spirit,   it   will   break   the   chains   that   bind you,   as   it   melts   away   the   inappropriate   thoughts,   undesirable   emotions   and harmful physical responses.
Foundation   is   comprised   of   biblically-based   foundational   principles   for   Christian living.      But   more   important,   Foundation   provides   the   groundwork   for   an   eternal life   in   Heaven.      It   is   written   in   a   manner   that   is   engaging   and   appropriate   for   all persons, including those who do not know Jesus Christ.

It’s not about me. Self-centeredness   is   an   undesirable   component   of   our   human   nature.      “Me”   is   a fundamental   source   of   human   motivation;   a   subliminal   influencer   of   what   we   think, do   and   say;   responsible   for   many   of   life’s   challenges;   and   a   source   for   instability   in the world today. For   those   who   seek   Jesus   Christ…this   lesson   explains   how   we   can   become   more like Him…and less like “me.”
Treasures in Heaven This   writing   is   intended   for   Christians   who   are   serving   Jesus   Christ   as   Savior   and Lord   (in   any   capacity   and   via   any   means).      The   purpose   of   this   writing   is   to   reveal the   intentions   of   our   heart,   the   reasons   why   we   serve,   and   those   aspects   of   our daily walk that may be improved.
6 Stages of Temptation This   writing   is   intended   for   Christian   men—all   males   in   their   early   teens   to   their late   years   in   life   who   struggle   against   the   flesh—especially   sexual   lust.      It   is   also appropriate   for   women   in   that   it   will   help   in   understanding   what   men   go   through.     But   what’s   more,   this   writing   is   real,   raw   and   revealing   because   it   explores   the area   where   the   “rubber   meets   the   road,”   and   where   men’s   faith   interacts   with inappropriate thoughts and behavior.
Free   Will       God   gave   each   of   us   the   right   to   make   personal   decisions   that   directly impact   our   lives;   including   what   we   do,   what   we   say,   what   we   consume,   what   we believe,   and   so   forth.      This   study   provides   insight   into   how   we   make   decisions; reveals   reasons   for   past   decision   mistakes;   discusses   how   to   make   decisions   in the future; and identifies the ultimate consequences for our decisions.  A free downloadable Decision Assistance Tool is also provided.
The Covenant (The beginning of the end.) One    of    the    most    important    indicators    of    the    end    times    is    found    in    Daniel 9:27—because   it   defines   the   event   that   will   initiate   the   Tribulation   and   the   last   7 years.      As   such,   every   person   on   earth   should   know   this   scripture   and   actively watch for the fulfillment of this prophecy. THIS WRITING IS A MUST READ!
Emotions      Negative   emotions   of   anger,   fear,   anxiety,   and   sadness   will   occur more   often   as   we   digress   into   the   last   days.     This   study   will   assist   in   identification, management and minimization of the affects of negative emotions.
Who Killed Jesus Christ? Some   say   Jews   killed   Jesus.      Others   think   it   was   the   Romans.     A   few   think   Satan manipulated   events   to   kill   Jesus.      Although   there   are   excellent   arguments   to support   each   belief,   these   perceptions   can   greatly   benefit   from   enhanced   spiritual understanding. The   answer   to   this   question   will   touch   your   heart,   and   the   truth   will   enlighten   your soul.      For   His   punishment   and   death   was   one   of   the   most   painful   means   of execution ever devised by man.
Angels, Fallen Angels & Demons The   intent   of   this   writing   is   to   replace   our   conceptual   images   of   angels,   fallen angels   and   demons   with   definitive   scripture-based   information   that   supports   a more accurate, deeper and broader understanding of spiritual beings.

I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life. One   of   the   most   important,   powerful   and   thought-provoking   declarations   Jesus Christ   made   is   when   He   said   “I   am   the   way,   the   truth,   and   the   life.”      But   what’s more,   He   drew   a   spiritual   and   eternal   “line   in   the   sand”   that   separated   Himself from   all   other   attempts   by   man   to   reach   God   when   He   added   “No   one   comes   to the Father except through Me.”  John 14:6 This   Bible   study   explores   His   proclamation   because   it   defines   His   spiritual   role between each of us and our Holy God
3 Types of Death 1 Source of Life. This   Bible   study   provides   scriptural   evidence   there   are   three   types   of   death: spiritual,    physical    and    2nd    death.        Those    who    are    born    again    will    only experience the first two.  Those who are not born again will experience all three. This    study    should    be    completed    prior    to    reading    “What    is    a    Born-Again Christian.”
What is a Born-Again Christian? This   Bible   study   explains   why   we   cannot   earn   our   way   to   Heaven;   expands biblical    understanding    of    what    it    means    to    be    born    again;    facilitates    self- evaluation; and enhances spiritual growth and maturity in Christ.  Note:   You   should   read   “3   Types   of   Death   1   Source   of   Life”   before   reading   “What is   a   Born-Again   Christian.”      “3   Types   of   Death   1   Source   of   Life”   provides   a “broader   foundation”   for   understanding   spiritual   death   and   why   we   need   to   be born again.
If you do not have a Bible.   I   often   use   Bible   Gateway   to   read   and   research   the   Bible:   https://www.biblegateway.com/       Bible   Gateway   offers different versions and different languages.  My personal preference (in English) is the New King James Version. My   favorite   Bible   teacher   is   Chuck   Smith.      Chuck   left   his   physical   body   to   be   with   the   Lord   in   2013.      Fortunately   his Bible   teachings   from   Genesis   to   Revelation   (word-by-word,   verse-by-verse)   were   recorded   and   may   be   heard   on   the following website: https://subsplash.com/twft/media/li/+fjbz8vs I   suggest   starting   with   the   study   of   1   John.      You   will   likely   need   to   download   the   sound   file   for   each   teaching.      I   will often   display   the   corresponding   scripture   from   Bible   Gateway   on   the   screen   as   I   listen   to   Chuck   Smith   teach.      Here   is the link to 1 John:  https://subsplash.com/twft/media/li/+sg5mrzq
