WELCOME to our Christian Site Come2jesus.info                                                                       


PROPRIETOR: Rolf Vaessen m.i.a.m.e      [Looking for our Vegetarian page ?]

Come to Jesus to buy of Him the gold of faith, the white robe of righteousness, and the eyesalve (Apocalypse 3:18). Our apocalyptic Jesus and all His apocalyptic last day events are found on this website as we indulge in the Revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, the last book of the Bible.

" We are promoting the life-changing words of our Lord Jesus Christ." "God has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, by whom He also made the World's.--[Hebrews 1:2,8,10].  I strongly suggest that you talk to God in prayer first before reading anything on this page about Jesus focused spirituality! Thanks.

"God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."--John 3:16 Notice it says 'should' not will.
God is offering free salvation to us all. It is an easy choice. Either heaven or hell. But Jesus our Lord warns us for deception in these apocalyptic last days.

What is sin?

The definition of sin by the world is 'wrongdoing.' But what does the Bible say? "What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what it was to covet if the law had not said, "Do not covet."--Romans 7:7 NIV
Can anyone be justified or declared 'righteous' [right doing] with out the law? "For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous."---Romans 2:13 NIV.
 

The law cannot save, only a divine Saviour by the name of Lord Jesus Christ has been appointed by God the Father to be our Saviour. All of the 10 Commandments declare us to be sinners before God. All of the 10 Commandments will judge us Gentiles as well as the people of the Old Testament [James 2:10-12; Ecclesiastes 12:13,14.] This includes Christ's seventh-day Sabbath [Mark 2:17] which Jesus says is for us! Compared to the seven annual Sabbath days [plural] which were against us [Colossians 2:17].

Solomon wrote: "These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness speaking lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.---Proverbs 6:16-19
Pride needs to be subdued in order to repent and ask forgiveness from God. We are guilty of lying as children and sometimes as adults. Because we are born with an inherited sinful nature, that we need a new life from above and the power of the Holy Spirit of God in order to follow Jesus on the narrow. The Holy Spirit is only given to those who obey. ---Acts 5:32.
 

Jesus Christ is Lord of the Seventh Day Sabbath [Saturday] and Creator God [Mark 2:28; Matthew 12:8;Apocalypse 1:10; John 1:1-3].  The here and now Jesus is relevant to our time.  Therefore the apocalyptic Lord Jesus Christ speaks to us today.  His end time Gospel found in Apocalypse 14:6-12 is unique in that it include giving glory to God in His hour of judgment.  If you know of anyone that preaches this Gospel, please let me know.  It is the good news of the judgment and gives homage to Jesus Christ as Creator God.  Our Lord Jesus in the apocalypse now is pictured riding a white horse to victory.  If you are riding with Him, you also will be a victorious Christian over sin, self and the world.

How are we to come to Jesus?  Just as we are.  If we come to Him for fear of burning hell, we are coming with the wrong motive.
Why should we come to Jesus?  Because He first loved us.  All we can do is to respond.
What do we get from Jesus?  Firstly, His Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, He helps us to repent and turn from sin.  After forgiveness, the Holy Spirit of God turns into our Comforter.  God then gives us a new heart and spirit where He writes His Holy moral Law of the 10 Commandments.  He gives us a foretaste of paradise, a slice of heaven.  The fruits of the Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, faith, gentleness, meekness and self-control.  As a result, we now love what we use to hate and hate what we use to love.  Jesus Christ achieves a total transformation in us.  See our 'New Birth' page.
If you need convincing of God's love for you, see our 'Gospel' page.  If you have been deceived by the wrong holy spirit or have been pressurized by false speaking in tongues, be warned and see our 'tongues' page.  If you need spiritual help in accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord, Friend and Saviour from sin, see our pages on 'Prayer' and 'heaven'.

God visited us and instead of rolling out the red carpet for Him, we killed Him!  No greater love has He who lays down His life for His sheep.
Instead of a God who sits up in heaven doing nothing, we see Him loving us to death.  We see Him sacrificing Himself by coming into human nature.  Compare it to someone of us becoming an ant to save the ant-race.  Then we see Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane struggling with the huge decision to save us or to abort the plan.  We see Him in agony deciding for us even though only a few would take His offer.
We see His agony on the cross of Calvary.  We see the Jews, His own people, rejecting Him and see the religious leaders possessed by Satan and his fallen angels clamouring for His death to put out the light which exposed their sins and worldly ambitions.
Jesus came to take away the cloak to cover religious sins ( John 15:22 ) Early in His mission Jesus made it clear that He came not to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace but a sword, for I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law, and a man's foes shall be they of his own household, says Jesus ( Matthew 10:34-36 ).  Peace is not what statesman think it is, absence of war, but the peace within that only Christ can give us.
The sword of course is God's Holy Spirit and the Bible ( Eph.6:17 ) to point out sin.

Only One Jesus
There is only one Jesus in the Bible and He is the Lord of the Seventh-day Sabbath [Saturday]. If anyone has a different Jesus, then he is not the right one. What is a Christian? A Christian is not a follower of Christians but of Christ. Christ never went to church on Sundays, so we cannot follow Him there. Sunday  came to us via Rome with force and makes us to transgress and violate the real Sabbath of the 10 Commandments.
"The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath." "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day."---Mark 2:27,28; Revelation 1:10.

 

God adopts us in Jesus
God does not adopt us as His children because we are good, but in order that He may make us good.  Says Paul, "God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, has made us alive together with Christ, (by grace are ye saved), and has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness towards us through Jesus Christ."---Ephesians 2:4-7.  And then He adds, "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God : not of works, lest any man should boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Jesus Christ unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them."  Verses 8-10.
This passage shows that God loved us while we were yet dead in sins;  He gives us His Spirit to make us alive in Christ, and the same Spirit marks our adoption into the Divine family; and He so adopts us that, as new creatures in Christ, we may do the good works which God has ordained.

Acceptance with God through Jesus

Many people hesitate to make a start to serve the Lord, because they fear that God will not accept them; and thousands who have been professed followers of Christ for years are still doubting their acceptance with God.  For the benefit of such I write; and I would not bewilder anybody with speculations, but will show them the simple assurance of God's word.

"Will the Lord Jesus receive me?"  I reply by another question, will a man receive that which he has purchased?  If you go to the shop and buy something, will you receive the goods when they are delivered?  Of course you will; there is no room for any question about it.  The fact that you bought the goods, and paid your money for them, is sufficient proof, not only that you are willing, but that you are anxious, to receive them.  If you did not want them, you would not have bought them.  More so, the more you paid for them, the more anxious you are to receive them.  If the price that you paid was great, and you had almost given your life to earn it, then there can be no question but that you will accept the purchase when it is delivered.  Your great anxiety is lest there should be some failure to deliver it.

Now, let us apply this simple, natural illustration to the case of the sinner coming to Christ.  In the first place, He bought us with His blood.  "But am I worthy?". That means that you are not worthy of the price paid, and therefore you fear to come lest Christ will repudiate the purchase.  You may not be a bargain, but should He refuse to accept you, on the grounds that you are not worthy of the price, He would not only loose you, but also the amount paid.
Even though the goods for which you have paid are not worth what you gave for them, you yourselves would not be so foolish as to throw them away.  You would rather get some return for your money.  But further, you have nothing to do with the question of worth.  When Christ was on earth in interest of that purchase, He "needed not that any should testify of man; for He knew what was in man."--- Jn.2:25 He made the purchase with His eyes open, and He knew the exact value of that which He bought, was satisfied with the bargain, you should be the last one to complain.  For the most wonderful truth of it all, He bought you for the very reason that you were not worthy!  We all....by nature were the children of wrath and if anyone is in Christ, he/she is become a new creation.  What wonderful transformation is our Lord achieving in rescuing us sinners from sin.  Praise His holy name.

Salvation in Christ

There are three stages to our Salvation, Justification [our title to heaven], Sanctification [our fitness for heaven] and then final Glorification!

We all have been Justified by the blood of the Son of God 2 000 years ago and therefore declared righteous, not made righteous!  Jesus having 'secured' our salvation, all we do, is to accept!!!

Once we have accepted salvation, we start on the road to Sanctification and the Holy Spirit works into us what Christ already worked out for us. Because Jesus does not save us in our sins, but from sin, we are being turned around and started to walk in the opposite direction, doing with love whatsoever He has commanded us.

Once saved always saved [OSAS]

 This is a very new popular doctrine and it is not in harmony with the following scriptures 1.Sam.10:6,9; 28:6,15 Eze.18:24; 28:14,15 Matth.24:13 1.Cor.9:27 Gal.5:4 Hebr.3:12-14 2.Pet.2:4,20,21. Jesus says in several places: 'He that endures to the end (probation), the same shall be saved'.

Luke 12
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his
coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to
eat and drink, and to be drunken;

46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not
for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in
sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

Note that this person is a servant of the Lord. Only saved people
are servants of the Lord. The Lord comes and His servant is in sin,
so what does He do to that servant? The servant is appointed his
portion with the unbelievers. What happens to unbelievers? They go
to hell. A saved person that falls into unrepentant sin will be
punished as unbelievers are.

Luke 8
13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the
word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe,
and in time of temptation fall away.

The parable of the sower. This group of people received the Word of
God with joy and believed for a while. When temptation came, they
fell away. Saved people chose to fall away.

OSAS is a false doctrine.


The phrase "You are saved" in 1.Cor.15:2 should read: "you are being saved", like the traveller on the road to pilgrims progress. Jesus says, narrow is the gate and narrow is the way, and few be there that walk therein.
If the Old Testament people were saved by the works of the Law, then the Publican was not justified by his prayer of repentance. But the Good News is, he was saved by the bleeding Lamb of God alone and did not save himself.

 Gal.2:16  "No 'flesh' will be justified by the works of the Law". It really means what it says, not one, not even one of the Old Testament people were saved by themselves.
Glorification is our final seal of Salvation because here is where we get immortality [1.Cor.15:52,53].

The FAITH of JESUS
There can be no Faith without coming to Jesus.  He is the Author of Faith and when He starts giving you faith, He will complete it inside you, but it requires a constant looking unto Jesus [Hebr.12:2]
Having the Faith of Jesus:  "Here are the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and have the Faith of Jesus [Revel.12:14] Here we find an inseparable combination, the Faith of Jesus and the Ten Commandments of God.
"Faith breeds obedience".---Alexander Maclaren

In 1999 a joint declaration of justification by faith between Lutherans and the Church of Rome was achieved!!!

The Islamic world points the finger to the west and says: 'There is the great Satan'. They can see it, but we are too close to it, we cannot, we are spiritually and morally blind.  Our T.V.'s mirror how we glorify sin.  
Our western world likes pleasures and smooth things spoken to them.  Our religious leaders have obliged by turning the truth into fables and anyone who speaks the straight truth is not welcomed.
The New Testament prophesied this of us as 'having a form of godliness, but denying its power' (dynamite).  Our leaders rather face stoning than repentance, it says that they will hide from the judge of all the earth and cry out to the mountains and rocks to fall on them ( Revelation 6:15-17 ).
Then in 2.Thess.2 we even get a better picture of Satan's inroad into Christianity: 'As for this man of rebellion and hell will do when he comes, it is already going on, but he himself will not come until the one who is holding him back (Christ), steps out of the way.  Then this wicked one will appear, whom the Lord Jesus will burn up with the breath of his mouth and destroy by His presence when He comes.  This man of sin will come as Satan's tool, full of satanic power, and will trick everyone with strange demonstrations, and will do great miracles.  He will completely fool those who are on their way to hell because they have said 'no' to the truth;  they have refused to believe it and love it, and let it save them, so God will allow them to believe lies with all their hearts, and all of them will be justly judged for believing falsehood, refusing the Truth, and enjoying their sins.---2.Thess.2:7-12. Living Bible.

"Preach the word (of God): be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine, for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrines (anymore): but of their own lusts shall heap to them selves teachers that will tell them what they want to hear, and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."---2.Tim.4:2-4 K.J.V.

That time is here.  False tongues have claimed miracles for years now, and these muttering mumbling spirits are certainly strange demonstrations and foreign to Christianity.   Fearful will be the results of the United States enforcing this false worship with the mark of the beast 666 in the papal Sunday law and the worldwide economic boycott so long awaited by students of prophecy.


Taking the word of God (the Bible) as an example, we write for both, the converted and un-converted, the Believers and un-Believers.  Jesus chose for His disciples not theologians or rabbis, but ordinary fisherman except for Dr. Luke.
"for you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called!  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty......1.Cor.1:23-30;2:14;3:9.

 

Humor of Faith

A man fell off a cliff, but managed to grab a tree limb on the way down. The following conversation ensued:

"Is anyone up there?"
"I am here. I am the Lord. Do you believe me?"
"Yes, Lord, I believe. I really believe, but I can't hang on much longer."
"That's all right, if you really believe you have nothing to worry about. I will save you. Just let go of the branch."
A moment of pause, then: "Is anyone else up there?"

Bits & Pieces, June 24, 1993, p. 3.

 

 

 

How are we to worship?

The only worship God accepts is in SPIRIT and in TRUTH [John 4:23].  And in the BEAUTY of HOLINESS [Ps.29:2].  VAIN worship is when we do not keep the TEN COMMANDMENTS [Matt.15:9].

The Day of worship

The ONLY day of worship commanded us by our mighty creator God in the entire Bible, is Christ's Seventh-Day Sabbath also called the Lord's Day.  From Genesis [Gen.2:1-3] to Revelation [Rev.1:10] also known to us as the fourth of the Ten Commandments [Ex.20:8].
Satan has led the entire Christian world astray in keeping Sunday holy.  The only way God wants us to remember the resurrection, is by the Lord's Supper and the Baptism by immersion [Rom.6].  God's day of worship is not owned by the Jews alone, but all Mankind [Mark 2:27].
This truth has been suppressed.   In fact the whole of Christianity has forsaken the Lord when it comes to the day of worship and reduced it to just an hour of worship.  It is the great falling away [apostasy] prophesied by the apostle Paul in 2.Thess.2:3 as occurring just before the return [advent] of our Lord.

 

The apocalyptic Jesus 
Jesus is pictured as riding a horse.   This horse is the Christian church at different times and ages going to battle against evil, iniquity and sin. Filled with Pentecostal fire it is eager to go so  long as Jesus has the reigns. During the 'Dark Ages' when the church was in darkness and sin, the horse was black.
During the days of the apostles, the horse Jesus rode was white and pure. The church and the state were separate and persecution kept the church free from cold hearted professors.
During the time of the Protestant Reformation, the horse Jesus rode was pictured as grey or pale.  In Reformation time the Gospel of Jesus Christ was neither black nor white. It was in the grey area. Reformers did not want complete reform to be too much different from the world and so making it to hard to grow. There was too much compromise and innumerous divisions.
The redness of the second horse would mean that it started to be corrupted. Paul wrote that the falling away [apostasy], started already in his time. Errors began to arise. Greek philosophy and Roman idolatry was mixed into the teachings of Jesus.
The measures of wheat and barley for a penny denote that the members of the church would be eagerly engaged after worldly goods and commerce, and the love of money would be the prevailing spirit of the times.
The oil and wine denote the graces of the Spirit, faith and love, and there was great danger of hurting these under influence of so much of a worldly spirit. [Rev.6].  [Rev.19:11] Jesus again will have a pure white horse to ride on. The last church persecuted by that great whore of modern Babylon riding the beast of the state church combination. 

See our Apocalyptic pages and see also under 'Who is Jesus' page to see that our Lord Jesus Christ is the same God of the Apocalypse as the God of the Old Testament!
The John of the Gospel is the same John of the Apocalypse.

The ultimate victory of Jesus is the dominant theme of the apocalypse. His faithful Saints will overcome the Tribulation soon as the new 'SUNDAY LAW' is in full swing!  Prophecies of the 'Apocalypse' depicts events that is to take place at the end of the age.  The apocalyptic Lord Jesus warns us against spiritual indifference and give us courage under persecution.
How do we overcome?  " And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death". Rev.12:11
When we have this sure testimony inside us that the blood of our Apocalyptic Jesus has saved us, we see ourselves not as holier than thou, but a Sinner saved by grace and in great need of Christ Jesus apocalyptic faith righteousness.

Jesus is the great 'Rock' or foundation 'Stone' on which we must built our spiritual house.  Then when the winds and storms of persecution blow, it is properly anchored and not on human shifting sand.---1.Cor.10:4; 
Again the parable in Matthew 7:24 tells us that Jesus is also the same as His Holy Word, see our 'Logos' page.  It is amazing how many people feel self-sufficient and no need of our Apocalyptic Jesus to save them now. They do not feel like the great Apostle Paul who still classified himself as the greatest of Sinners and in constant need of Christ's holiness and in Romans seven even after conversion still had to die daily to self and sin. (see also Gal.2:20).
The apocalyptic God Jesus wants a church bride in white without spots, wrinkles or any such thing.  Apocalypse19:7-9; Eph.5:27



One sin and Jesus
Jesus is pure and sinless. Those following Him will be striving to be like Him. One sin expelled Adam and Eve from paradise. One sin barred Moses from entering the promised land.  One sin killed Ananias and Sapphira  for lying to the Holy Spirit.  Sabbath breaking is the most popular number one sin today.

I know a good number of backsliders who have gone back to the tents of ease.  They are opposing us at every turn. They are being used by our opponents effectively.  Even though they maintain that they still belong to Jesus and have learned very clever arguments.  Yet sadly to say, they have gone back to sin and leisure.  Of these Jesus will say that they have been Lovers of pleasures more than Lovers of God!

Jesus Christ
For other foundation can no man lay then that is laid, which is Jesus Christ [1.Cor.3:11].  Neither is there Salvation in any other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved [Acts 4:12].  I, even I, am the Lord; and besides Me there is no Savior [Isa.43:11].  You must call His name Jesus for He shall save His people from their sins. [Matth.1:21].  You must call His name Immanuel, which interpreted means "God with us" [Matth.1:23].  Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign, behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel [Isa.7:14; 9:6,7].  "Search the Scriptures: for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are which testify of Me [Jn.5:19].  I and the Father are one [Jn.10:30].  He has appointed His Son the Heir of all things [Hebr.1:2,8].

Dr. Jesus
The greatest and most successful heart surgeon specialist in the universe, is Jesus Christ.  He never looses a case, except if His patient decides to hang on to his/her pet sin.
The new heart is the very hub and center of the new covenant/testament of Christianity.  See Hebrews 8:1-13.  Unless God Himself writes love for His holy Law of the Ten Commandments in our brand new hearts by Dr. Jesus, trying to keep them holy by our natural hearts, is absolutely useless.
Because our natural heart is deceitful 'above' 'all' things [Jer.17:9] and it cannot love God and His holiness [Rom.8:7] The closer the new heart comes to God, we can see our own sinfulness.  The unrenewed heart thinks it has no or little sin.  It is not convicted by the Holy Spirit and deceives itself.
Ezekiel 11:19,20 prophesied  this new heart  transplantation echoed in Hebrews where Dr. Jesus never looses a case.  Come to Him now and let Him do the operation on you now.  Just open your old heart and let Him come in.  If you ask God to show you the right truth out of so many, and ask God which church you should attend and belong to, He definitely will show you personally in a very short time.

"And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.

And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust."---Psalms 78:17,18.

 

"And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ........now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted...............

..........Now all these things (fornication included) happened unto them (destroyed by God) for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."---1.Cor.10:4,6,11.

"They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the garden behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord."---Isa.66:17

Note:  In the garden of Eden stood one tree, the tree of life.  There GOD gave three things to us that means much to Him, marriage, the vegetarian diet and His Sabbath day of worship.  But because of the lust of the flesh, people sanctify and purify themselves with their own strength instead of letting GOD take over their lives.  Come2jesus and let Him give you His Holy Spirit instead.
