Following the Right Road
Edited by J E Bradburn
John 3 (KJV)
01 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
02 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, “Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with Him.”
03 Jesus answered and said unto him, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee’, ‘Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’”
04 Nicodemus saith unto Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?”
05 Jesus answered, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee’, ‘Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.’”
06 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
07 ‘Marvel not that I said unto thee,’ ‘ye must be born again.’”
08 “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”
09 Nicodemus answered and said unto Him, “How can these things be?”
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, “Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?”
11 “Verily, verily, I say unto thee’, ‘We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.’”
12 “If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?”
13 “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.”
14 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:”
15 “That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
17 “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”
18 “He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
19 “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
20 “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”
21 “But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
22 “After these things came Jesus and His disciples into the land of Judaea; and there He tarried with them, and baptized.”
23 “And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.”
24 “For John was not yet cast into prison.”
25 “Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.”
26 And they came unto John, and said unto Him, “Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.”
27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.”
28 “Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, “I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before Him.”
29 “He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.”
30 “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
31 “He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.”
32 “And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.”
33 “He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.”
34 “For He whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto Him.”
35 “The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand.”
36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
Answer to verse 3: A human being or man if you like, cannot enter the Kingdom of God in the flesh, first he has to die & be born a second time; and his flesh goes back to the ground from whence it came, and the spirit goes back to God who gave it (Eccles 12:7 KJV). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earthlytabernacle.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/future.htm
Answer to verse 4: It does not matter how old you are, first you have to die to release the spirit.
Answer to verse 5: If a man is not baptised, and is not one of God’s children, then he cannot enter into the kingdom. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/nativityofjesus.htm
Answer to verse 6: That which is born of the flesh is flesh; an earthy man who has made the choice to stay, and does not believe in God. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit http://www.godsplan.org.uk/spiritualmaterial.htm
Answer to verse 7 & 8: Do not wonder at Jesus saying “you must be born again”, the wind blows, and you hear the sound of it, but you cannot tell where it comes from (not direction) or where it goes too, “so is everyone who is born of the spirit.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/spiritualmaterial.htm
Answer to verse 9 & 10: Nicodemus says to Jesus, “How is this possible?” Jesus answering him says to Nicodemus a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin; “And you do not know these things?” Even the churches are ignorant of these facts, or are not telling anyone. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apostasytogodskingdom.htm

Answer to verse: 36 In verse 36 is the whole TRUTH of the Dispensational Plan of the Bible (KJV). “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
HERE IS THE CHOICE!
I remember very well when I was a youngster, a gang of peers formed, and everywhere we went was the voice of the leader; “Follow me” was the cry, as he led everyone into perdition; but I chose my own way and still go that way today. I told our two sons of this escapade, and to my relief they have followed in my footsteps, both sons are in their late forties. The eldest has just passed his tug masters exam, with a good salary, and the slightly younger son owns his own garage business. Both have their own homes with a good and secure income for the storm ahead. http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm
It is easier to follow the crowd and go their way; they have to make the decisions and not you; there is safety in numbers so they think, and the herding instinct kicks in carrying you along to an impossible direction (See the image below). Keeping up with the Jones’s, or even bettering them, they have no plan, going through life like a ship without a crew or rudder. The children follow the footsteps of these, their parents, each going their own way in life, and most making a mess of it, to the explanation; “Where have we gone wrong all these years?”
In actual fact we are all but a shadow and know nothing; unless we search for the TRUTH indefatigably; and pass it on to our children.
Job 8:9 (KJV) (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow).
We are given three score years and ten, although doctors, through pills try to keep us going for longer, the only winners are the pharmaceutical companies, money from the NHS. PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE, that is because doctors cannot cure most people; however; God can, but only if you ask Him.
The quiz shows on T.V. are all distractions, filling people’s minds with earthly knowledge, and those people feeling good because they can answer most of these questions however by getting information from books; but when it comes to Biblical questions in these quiz shows most people cannot answer them because they do not read, or have never read, the Bible.. This is simply not because anyone lacks the knowledge, but because the shepherds, like the priests in churches far and wide, have stopped preaching the Gospel and God’s Kingdom to the populace, and removing R.E. from school curriculums while Politics, and education today are taking a battering; and the enemy is laughing at you and rubbing his hands together because you have not taken the right road. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apostasytogodskingdom.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Fourpillarsofsociety.htm Only the financial system remains intact, soon to go under; then the appearance of the little horn of Revelation
Daniel 8:24 (KJV) And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and destroy the mighty and the holy People. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/danielsvisions.htm
Paul says: 1 Corinthians 15:50 (KJV) “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earthlytabernacle.htm
It really is a no brainer, because if you ignore all you are shown here, then it is the end for you and your family. What have you got to lose? Your life; you have already lost if you do not believe any of this; yet just wanting to stay alive as a slave for as long as possible, in ill-health, on a corrupt political and Godless fallen world, broke, in debt, and living and sleeping on the streets, If that is all you have to offer me, I would look elsewhere. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/dispensationalplan.htm
Revelation 21:27 (KJV) And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
THERE ARE NO WARS, NO CONFLICTS, FOOD IS PLENTIFUL, AND NO EARTHLY LAWS TO BOTHER ABOUT, SO WHY SHOULDN’T WE DO AS WE LIKE?
This is precisely what Satan wants. He knows his time is short, and he has been told by God he is to work in the realm of religion; particularly Judaism and Christianity. He has already started many years ago, but now is becoming more hostile as the end days progress. Some of the horrific things he does: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/pureHeavenlytruth.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apostasytogodskingdom.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/doctrineofdemons.htm are but a few.
Revelation 12:12 (KJV) Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea (people)! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Prophecy was delivered by prophets who wrote ALL God had revealed to them. Many of the prophecies recorded in the Bible have already come to pass. Many more remain to be fulfilled at the end of this present age, before Christ’s return to earth http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm and after. As we study this important part of Scripture, we need to keep in mind several important principles:
· The prophets of the Bible wrote as they were inspired to do so by God. In other words, no prophecy in the Bible came from any individual writer’s personal ideas, but rather by God’s direct inspiration.
· Fulfilled prophecy gives us confidence that God is real and that He will fulfill what He has said about the future. Since prophecies of world-ruling empires http://www.godsplan.org.uk/danielsvisions.htm and even the name of a specific ruler long before his birth have all come to pass, we know the rest of the Bible’s prophecies will likewise come to pass.
· Prophecy motivates us to have faith in God that is demonstrated by obedience to His laws http://www.godsplan.org.uk/faith.htm. Because so many judgments are coming upon peoples and nations because of disobedience to God’s law, we discover that a proper understanding of God’s grace will inspire us to live godly lives.

Matthew 24: 36—42 (KJV)
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm
This is God’s Plan which He put together in His tabernacle, alone, and un-blameable; to rescue His beloved earth and sons, from Satan’s terrible deeds. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, http://godsplan.org.uk/noah.htm
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. http://godsplan.org.uk/itsnottolate.htm
Matthew 24: 21—27 (KJV)
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/nationshalrise.htm
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/doctrineofdemons.htm
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
His second coming will be from the east; we know this because the Sphinx (Lion of Judah) faces east and we are told by the Precession of the Equinox that when the sword of Orion http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Orion.htm reaches the constellation of Leo He will arrive, and every eye shall see Him; and this event is not far off.
Revelation 1:7 (KJV) Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him, Even so, Amen.
Matthew 24:28—35 (KJV)
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles [vultures] be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
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.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Fig%20tree%20Part%201.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Fig%20tree%20Part%202.htm
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, “This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
This generation; which is now living here on earth, if you notice, there are no world wars, famines, or pestilences to speak of; so verse 34 becomes very poignant doesn’t it? (Deeply affecting).
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.
Matthew 24:43—51 (KJV)
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over His household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when He cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That He shall make him ruler over all His goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth His coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 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,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The throne of the great Priest King of the “thousand years” now gives place to the glorious “throne of God and of the Lamb”, for God is now “all in all”. Contrast Ezekiel 47:1—11 KJV where the river proceeds from the “house” associated with the altar, and here from the throne (Rev 22:1).
Ezekiel 47:1-11 (KJV)
01 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
02 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.
03 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
04 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
05 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
06 And he said unto me, “Son of man, hast thou seen this?” Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.
07 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.
08 Then said he unto me, “These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.”
09 And it shall come to pass, that everything that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh.
10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt.
Revelation 22:1 (KJV) And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Water of life means: The spiritual truth, fed daily to the inhabitants of God’s Kingdom which is needed for spiritual refreshment, and to maintain eternal life.
Revelation 22:5 (KJV) And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
Here is the reason for the sun and stars to melt away. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earthlytabernacle.htm
2 Peter 3:10 (KJV) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
The body is a temporary shelter and dwelling place for the spirit; which will not be affected by (2 Peter 3:10). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/spiritfilled.htm.
2 Peter 3:7 (KJV) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
So why would you want to be in debt, ill-health, house, mortgage, or any other reason for wanting to stay on this fallen earth when (2 Peter 3:10) clearly shows there is no point to your way of thinking. Like in the days of Noe http://godsplan.org.uk/noah.htm Vanity; all is vanity, and lack of Biblical knowledge (KJV).
