A Testimony Of Praise Many men, women, young people, and children talk about the fact that they don’t or won’t go to a church, but they end up watching a testimony or teaching on The Rock Of Ages Ministries Television Program and end up praying to accept Jesus Christ as savior. The power of television is utterly amazing! The technology allows people to invite you into their homes with the touch of a button, even when they might never open the door if you arrived in person to share the Gospel or invite them to church. More important, they watch with their defenses lowered. They don’t realize that God is at work, but He is.� And they don’t understand that God has appointed that moment for them to receive the eternity-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ! Television is remarkably effective! In an instant, the most hungry and lonely soul can be transported into a majestic worship service. That person, no matter where he or she is around the globe, can hear and receive the simple truth or salvation. That precious soul can witness firsthand God’s power through healing testimonies. And what a difference these telecasts and webcast are making – as evidenced by the many calls that we are receiving, all year long. People who have accepted Jesus Christ because of our telecast, webcast, DVD�and the many other outreaches of our ministry. To God be the glory for all He has done through these powerful Gospel tools!

In some of these nations, it is illegal to own a Bible, to share one's faith in Christ, and even for parents to teach their children about Jesus Christ. - Christians who try to live by their beliefs face radical opposition, and every day we hear new accounts of discrimination, excessive and unfair fines, denial of humanitarian aid, imprisonment, torture, expulsion from homes, property seizures, churches torched, entire Christian towns destroyed by extremist - and terrorist-led mobs, and mass executions. - "Regard prisoners as if you were in prison with them. Look on victims of abuse as if what happened to them had happened to you" (Hebrews 13:3) In his letter to the church in Colossi, the imprisoned missionary Paul exhorted fellow believers to "remember my chains" (Colossians 4:18) - Sadly, such persecution is often tolerated, sanctioned, or even encouraged by local, regional, or national government officials. - We must all join together and "Raise Up A Standard" Against - All Anti-Christian Extremist Groups: "So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him". (Isaiah 59:19) - We are calling upon all God's people to make a stance against - Anti Christian Groups, Church Persecutions and the Like: Yes we will keep those needs lifted up in prayer, as have been requested of us from many parts of the world. - God said in His Word that these things would happen to some of us. "If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you... because they do not know Him who sent Me." (John 15:18-21) - He also promised that - He would not put upon us more than we could bear. (I Corinthians 10:13) says, "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it". - Lastly - He said that some of us would face tribulation many days, and that we would receive a crown of life as we stay faithful. (Revelation 2:10) "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life." - We are standing with you in "Spirit and in Truth". We must "Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. ..." (1 Corinth 3:14) "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." (1 Corinth15:8) - In Jesus we remain committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world, Apostle Ronnie and Takako Bailey, Overseers – Rock Of Ages Ministries, Intn'l - RockOfAgesMins@aol.com - www.ronniebailey.com - (504) 613-7234 or (337) 706-7262 - TO ACCESS CHANNEL - Press "Play Button" In Center Of TV Screen - THE 7TH MILLENNIUM THEORY OF JESUS’ COMING – 1 Millennium = 1000 Years - The thinking behind this 6000 to 7000 year timline plan of God is that the earth would be worked for 6000 years and then Christ Jesus would return at the second coming which would begin the 1000 year millennium rest (sabbath rest). So let's look at some Bible verses and see what extra prophetic meaning that God has put into those verses. Please note that we do understand the specific literal meaning of these Bible verses for the people living in that time, but we are looking also at the extra prophetic meaning, which God adds to certain verses of the Bible.As we know, God created the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th day, and added that "rule" for us in the 4th commandment ... Exodus 20:8-11 ...'Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.' ... Now how could this tie in with the 6000 - 7000 year timeline plan? Well, what did Peter say? ... 2 Peter 3:8 ...'But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.' ... Interesting!Joshua 6:2-5 ...'And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.'The above account is a very interesting one to tie in with the 6000 year timeline plan. God commands the people to march around the city of Jericho once a day for six days, and then on the seventh day seven times, and when they blow the trumpet the walls will fall and they "ascend up" to enter the city. Now the imagery here in relation to the end times and the 6000 year timeline is beautiful! The people march for 6 days (God's people warning the world for 6000 years). 7 Priests blow the 7 trumpets (7 angels blowing the 7 end time trumpets). At the last trumpet sound they ascend up into the city of Jericho (Jesus returns after the last trump and the saints "ascend up" to New Jerusalem).Matthew 24:31 .....'And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.'1 Corinthians 15:52 .....'In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.'Revelation 8:2 ...'And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.'Exodus 24:16 ...'And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.' ... So Moses goes up Mount Sinai to receive the ten commandments but he waits for 6 days until God calls out to Moses on the seventh day to "come up". Just as God's people throughout the ages wait for 6000 years and then in the 7000th year Jesus will call and those who hear His voice will "ascend up" to meet Him ... John 5:28-29 ...'Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth.'Mark 9:2 ...'And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.' ... So after waiting for 6 days, the 3 apostles "ascend up" with Jesus on the 7th day.Remember, with God, a day is as a thousand years ... 2 Peter 3:8 ...'But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.'Leviticus 25:4 .....'But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.' ... So 6 years of working the land and then it gets a sabbath rest on the seventh year. Now take a look at the parable of the sower for the significance of the above ... Matthew 13:37-39 .....'He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.' ... Do you see the prophetic connection with all these verses and the 6000 year timeline? It's all centered around 6 days or 6 years of work and 7th day or 7th year for rest. So the same can be true for the world, it is sowed for 6000 years by Jesus and His people and then it is harvested by the angels and the world gets a 1000 year sabbath rest during the 1000 year millennium.Now if this 6000 to 7000 year timline plan of God is true, then why hasn't Jesus returned yet? Afterall, it said in the chart above that He should have returned by 1997. Well, take a look at the following.Matthew 24:46-51 .....'Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'Matthew 25:1-5 .....'Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.'In these parables, Jesus forewarned us that He would be DELAYED! So He is warning us to keep watching and waiting and to not fall away thinking that He is not coming, or to get lazy thinking that He will not come for a long time. We need to be on our guard and to keep looking for His coming.Why would Jesus say He was going to be delayed if there was no truth in this 6000 year timeline?If you think about it, how would we know that Jesus is delayed if this 6000 year timeline plan wasn't true? So why is it that He is delayed? ... 2 Peter 3:9 ...'The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.' ... In His loving mercy, Jesus has delayed His return so that more of us could come to repentance and be saved.Revelation 6:10-11 .....'And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.'The reason that Jesus hasn't returned yet is because His people are not ready. God has an end time group of people to take the final warning to the world, contained in the three angels message, and when that group of people have given their hearts and minds to Christ and are ready, THEN the last days will commence.Revelation 7:2-4 ...'And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.'Once the 144,000 are ready and have been sealed, THEN the final warning will go to the world, the mark of the beast will be enforced and once everyone has made their decision, Jesus will return!When Moses went up the mount to receive the ten commandments and was delayed, the people became weary and started falling into sin. Also with the ten virgins, when the bridegroom (Jesus) tarried, they fell asleep. We need to learn from these, and while Jesus tarries in Heaven we need to make sure we do not do the same as they did. We need to stay awake. We need to keep watching and waiting, and give our all for Christ Jesus while we have time left on this earth. We are in the very end times and if you add this 6000 year timeline plan to the other signs of the end times, it shows there is not long left. VIDEO
