MUSIC: A WAR FOR YOUR SOUL!

Have you ever wondered why songs (in general) have a long “introduction” before the lyrics come about? Or also why a certain song and/or songs get stuck in your head all the time? Do you think this is all just mere COINCIDENCE?

Songs (by nature) are/were DESIGNED (by the spirit world) to put the listener into a VERY, VERY DEEP “trance-like meditative state”. The question is, does it put them into a GOOD trance (where they are motivated to worship the Lord Jesus, in spirit and in truth) or does it put them in a BAD trance (where it encourages a person to say/think/do things that go AGAINST the bible?)

I’ve honestly had songs (and/or parts of songs) that were stuck in my head for HOURS, DAYS, and WEEKS! And I kept having to ask myself WHY! And then, when I finally succeeded in getting THAT particular song unstuck out of my head, YET ANOTHER song would get stuck in my head for DAYS on end!

Or worse yet, I sometimes get the case of what I call “SONG FEVER”, where I have to listen to a song over and over and over again…….and if I DON’T listen to the current song on repeat, my mind starts to go stir-crazy! “What is this?”, I aggravatingly think to myself. “This is madness! What the hey!” And I used to think it was just mere “coincidence”. Little did I know it is actually HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE that I was/am experiencing! (A warfare of THE MIND!)

Take tribal African voodoo, for instance. Many “pop songs” are today BASED on voodoo (yes, voodoo!). Lets look through a few examples, here…..

1). “Sympathy for the Devil” by Rolling Stones, 1968

Note: If you slow it down and listen to the beginning, it’s CLEARLY voodoo beats being played in the song, followed by what sounds like “monkey/jungle calls”. The “monkey calls” are probably some hidden thing to “summon demons/demon spirits” and/or to display the “theory of Evolution”, somehow.

And here’s another VERY popular song from the 80’s which has DEFINITE voodoo in it, from start to finish (it even has “Satanic growls” in it!)

2). “Gloria Estefan – Rhythm Is Gonna Get You” – 1987

There’s also THIS song (which clearly has voodoo beats in the background, as well, starting at 0:40 and again at 0:55):

3). “Come & Get It” by Selena Gomez, 2013 or so

In fact, nearly ALL “popular songs” of today have what’s called “Syncopation”. Now………“What’s syncopation?”, some may ask. Answer: it is basically a “disturbance” or “interruption” of the REGULAR, natural flow of rhythm. In other words, it takes “natural rhythm” and makes it UN-NATURAL rhythm (in other words, rhythm’s that off-beat).

Here, Christian Berdahl explains it in a little more detail:

So basically, whenever you get a song stuck in your head, 9 times out of 10, it’s because Satan and demons are behind it! Remember, Satan is BEHIND the “Music & Entertainment Industry”, today! Even most of today’s “CHRISTIAN MUSIC” today is “suspect”. Why? Because it honestly sounds no different than “contemporary” music!

Why? Because it ALSO (as a whole today) uses “Syncopation”, just like all of today’s “worldly music” does. Don’t believe me? Do an experiment. Flip through all the car radio stations. Then go to the Christian music station. Notice anything different? My guess is no. If you didn’t know AHEAD of time that it WAS the Christian station, would you have mistaken it for a “secular” radio station? Be honest with yourself!

Satan is “implied” in the bible to have been “full of music” (BEFORE “the fall from heaven”). Therefore, Satan knows music like his back hand. He knows it inside and out. And so it’s really no wonder THAT he uses “music” as one of his primary weapons to “deceive the masses”.

Okay, now I want you to conduct another “experiment”. Listen to your “favorite song”. How does the song make you FEEL? Does it humble you before the Lord Jesus Christ and make you want to worship him? Or does it make you think of OTHER things, besides Jesus and the bible? Be COMPLETELY honest with yourselves!

And if it’s CHRISTIAN music you’re listening to, does it REALLY encourage you to worship Jesus, in spirit and in truth? Or do all the back-beats, etc. DISTRACT YOU from doing so and make you more focused on the beat, rather than on the message? Be honest with yourself!

Many think that ALL “Christian music” is just fine and dandy. But only most recently have folks come to realize that EVEN “Christian music” is suspect these days (sadly enough). So don’t fool yourselves! Just because a piece of Christian music has the label “Christian” on it does NOT make it “truly Christian”!

For example, many “Christian” female vocalists sing all “sensual”, as though they’re singing to a LOVER, instead of Jesus Christ! (I’m sorry, but it’s true!) And with all the drum beats, back-beats, break-beats, clap-beats, I’d never know most of these songs were a supposedly “Christian” song!

Examples?

1). “Lauren Daigle – First” (This is sung the way a woman would sing to a lover!)

2). “TobyMac – Feel It” (This is sung as though the goal is to be like Bruno Mars!)

ETC….

But then again, what is a TRUE “Christian song”, by definition? Answer: It is one that completely clears the mind (in a GOOD sense), has NO “syncopation” or “background beats/distractions” and ENCOURAGES the Christian listener to worship Jesus (in spirit and in truth):

“Let Them See You” by JJ Weeks Band

Notice the difference there, folks? But again, I’m not personally judging or bashing the two above Christian artists (only Jesus knows their hearts), I’m just saying that the “syncopated-type music” and the *sultry*-sounding lyrics distracts from THE ACTUAL MESSAGE OF SALVATION!

There’s even this whole movement among the Christians today that we (as a whole), must become more “wordly” in our music and in our messages in order to “draw in more people from the world/those that are unsaved”.

HOWEVER, WHEN Christians or “the church” become more “worldly” in their “music” or in their “doings”, they’re actually doing themselves a SERIOUS disservice, as it’s showing the “worldly/unsaved people of the world” the message that: “Hey, Christians are just as worldly as WE are, so I guess there’s no real need to change and repent of our sins!

Even “country music” is not immune from Satan’s grip!

But in fact, let me take this one step further. A popular music artist (who openly worships Satan) has come out and admitted that each of her performances is “a sermon”. Interesting. Therefore, if we can apply her words to ALL secular music these days, and ALL secular music is “individual sermons”, then it most certainly sheds light on the fact that SATAN DESIGNED MUSIC AS ***SPIRITUAL WARFARE!***

Now that’s a tough message for most Christians to grasp (especially those born in the 80s and 90s!) They like their Def Leppard, Bruce Springstein, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Madonna, REO Speedwagon, Mister Mister, Poison, TLC, Metallica, Motley Crue, etc. But rarely do they ever look at all the symbolism (and “spiritual agendas”) BEHIND the music!

Most people might thinking that listening to music is an “innocent thing”. But believe me folks, most music was designed by Satan & his demons for ***HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!!!!!!!***!!! And not only that, but did you know that nearly ALL music artists sell their souls to the Devil for money, fortune & fame? (It’s true!) Don’t believe me? Watch the following “rocumentary”, as it WILL open up your eyes as to what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes of the music industry & L.A./Hollywood!

Here is parts 1 through 5 on Youtube:

Now…..am I saying that ALL music is bad? No, ofcourse not. Music has been shown in studies to improve mood, sleep quality, memory, brain activity, etc. However, one should be more mindful from now on about just WHAT type of music they listen to. Because remember that music was designed by Satan for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Remember that Satan USES music to “deceive the masses!” Plus remember that Satan uses music to try to take you AWAY from God/Jesus Christ!

But one of the BEST ways to “test” a song is to critically examine the LYRICS! (Please also remember that many popular songs of today have lyrics with “hidden meanings!”) Critically examine the lyrics and then ask yourself if it’s something you should be listening to or not. But again, don’t just look at the lyrics, examine the BEAT of the song, as well.

Example: If it’s a “Christian song” but has a “hip hop/break-beat” (and music video) that’s set up like a Bruno Mars song, then that should tell you something right there. Or if it’s a “Christian song” but you’re more focused on the “beat” or “the drums” or the “artist/sultry voice” than the “message”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

After watching both documentaries (both Christian Berdahl’s “The Distraction Dilemna” and “They Sold Their Souls For Rock N’ Roll”), my spiritual eyes were thoroughly opened and so NOW, when I flip through the radio stations and I hear songs that Satan originally intended to deceive people with, I am now armed with the spiritual knowledge of what the “true meanings” of those songs are and I am no longer deceived BY them! And trust me, it’s nothing short of a spiritually liberating feeling in Christ!

So……what types of music SHOULD a true born-again Christian be listening to, you may ask? Well, here’s my personal, spiritual recommendations:

1). Christian music that uplifts your spirit and ENCOURAGES you to worship Jesus in spirit and in truth (In other words, music that has you TRULY focused on the gospel/Jesus and NOT on the voice, the beat or the “rhythm”)

2). Romantic love songs that do NOT glorify fornication or anything else that’s unbiblical

3). Classical or uplifting instrumentals

I myself for years & years had been a long-time fan of Trance/Electronic, etc. music. But after critically examining the fact that if you slow it down, it sounds like a slow, repetitive voodoo beat highly spiritually disturbs me!

In fact, I even said a troubled-in-my-heart prayer to Jesus about it: Jesus, does it displease you that I occasionally listen to Trance/Electronic music, etc? and the answer I seemed to get back from him is THIS: “Does it encourage you to worship me at all? Or does it distract you & make you think of OTHER things, besides ME?”

Okay folks, I felt CONVICTED! And ever since then, I’ve severely limited my Trance/etc. listening! Because NOW, any time I listen to Trance etc. music, I can FEEL Jesus’s spiritual gaze upon me as if to say, “Feeling distracted, are we?” and I just can’t enjoy that type of music anymore! It just feels…….wrong!

Now……we’ve all heard that LUST can be a temptation or that TV/video games/food/drink can be a temptation. But can MUSIC also be a temptation? Answer: ABSOLUTELY! For after being “spiritually convicted” not to listen to Trance, etc. music anymore, I can’t tell ya HOW many times I’ve been “tempted” to listen to it! (And yes, sometimes I’ve given IN to the temptation to listen to it and then felt guilty & ashamed, afterwards!) 

Like, I really have to fight the urge to NOT listen to it, sometimes! It used to come as a natural habit to me…….Turn on the computer, hit the playlist, and give it a whirl! Believe me, it takes ALOT of spiritual discipline to NOT listen to our favorite music that actually spiritually DISTRACTS US and takes us AWAY from the gospel/Jesus Christ! I had to learn that the hard way!

Non-fornicating love songs, classical or uplifting instrumentals might not “seem” like they fully glorify Jesus. However……non-fornicating love songs can remind us of Jesus’s love for his church, while classical or uplifting instrumentals can remind us of the beauty of God’s creation, especially of “musical scales” in general. Many people don’t realize this but “music” is actually composed of mathematical algorithms! And our God (the God of the bible) is no doubt a “mathematical God!”

But that aside, did you know that they did a study on “plant growth” vs. “music”. And not surprisingly enough, when “plants” listened to classical music, they THRIVED! But yet, when plants listened to “death metal”, they withered up and DIED! (And if I remember correctly, BOTH types of music were played at the exact same volume, in the study!)

Therefore, it stands to reason: if “plants” (which are “living”) thrive on classical music, why wouldn’t WE? Studies have shown, for example, that listening to classical music before a test can increase test scores! (It would be interesting to see how plants responded to the JJ Weeks Band or non-fornicating love songs!)

But again, I digress. The moral of the story here is that MUSIC AFFECTS OUR SOULS – either for the positive or the negative. Therefore, it’s up to us to try to only listen to music that UPLIFTS our minds, hearts, bodies & spirits IN Jesus and that does NOT distract us from the gospel in any way, shape or form! I hope this post has given you something to think about, when it comes to music! What you listen to really DOES affect you SPIRITUALLY – rather you realize it or not! So choose wisely! Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The BIBLICAL Jesus/Yeshua Vs. the PAGAN Jesus/Yeshua

Today’s Christianity is a FAR CRY from what “Christianity” was at the time of Yeshua/Jesus Christ. Today’s Christianity worships a COUNTERFEIT JESUS! Yes………a COUNTERFEIT JESUS…….and here’s why:

PAGAN JESUS WORSHIP:

1). The BIBLICAL Sabbath has been done away with and has been replaced by MORTAL MAN/the Roman Catholic Church to the FIRST day of the week (Sun-day, venerable worship day of the SUN! To say that the Sabbath was changed is to say that God made a mistake when he CREATED the 7th day Sabbath, consecrated it and MADE IT HOLY. And to say/claim that God “made a mistake” with the Sabbath? Well, I’ll let YOU figure it out, folks!)

2). Holidays such as Christmas and Easter actually MOCK Jesus Christ/Yeshua by equating him with things which AREN’T in the bible, such as chocolate bunnies, Easter eggs, adorned christmas tree IDOLS, Santa Claus, and that reduce him to nothing more than a “helpless babe in a manger”, etc. 

3). BIBLICAL holidays that fully and **TRULY** CELEBRATE & HONOR JESUS (such as Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Pentecost, Atonement, Tabernacles) are NO LONGER CELEBRATED *****AT ALL*******! Plus most “Christians” today haven’t even HEARD of them! (Sad, real sad…….)

4). [Catholicism]: Worships the SUN, not **the Son!** And the “Son” they DO worship is NOT the Jesus from the bible but rather, Helios, the Sun god (in the VISUALIZED IDOL form of Jesus!) And pretty much 99% of ALL “Christian churches” have followed suit, without even knowing or realizing it! Hint: those aren’t “halos” you see on Catholic figures but are rather used to represent SUNS!

5). Has a “superiority complex” when it comes to the Jews and claims God/Yeshua is no longer with the Jews OR falsely claims that the Jews don’t need Jesus since they are saved by the Torah……………totally disregards the fact that Jesus was a Jew and considers it a “non-issue” when in reality, the fact that Jesus was a Jew is of CENTRAL IMPORTANCE!

6). WRITES OFF the Old Testament as if it has NO significance, meaning or value and as if it no longer applies, TODAY! Also claims “the church” is a place to GO TO, not to BE! Hint: church isn’t a place we “go to” for we ARE “the church”, each and every single one of us and we’re supposed to BE “the church” within our SPIRIT! Think about it, folks! Hiding behind 4 walls once a week on the false sabbath while in the meantime not concerning oneself with the homeless, the unsaved, etc. Today’s “church model” is NOT biblical!

7). Created several million different SECTS & DENOMINATIONS (Ever wondered WHY that is? certainly they can’t ALL be right!) 

8). Often asks the question “What can Jesus do for ME?”, instead of asking what one can do for Jesus and his heavenly kingdom, etc. 

CONCLUSION: Today’s “modern institutionalized Christianity” worships a PAGAN Jesus on a FALSE MAN-MADE *CATHOLIC* SABBATH with a FALSE/PAGANIZED GOSPEL that’s absolutely NOTHING like the gospel that was around during the time of Jesus Christ HIMSELF!

“There IS no such thing as sin since Jesus payed for our sins!”, “sprinkling baptism”, “baptism delay”, “Sunday sabbath”, “Paganized holidays” and “once saved, always saved” are the prominent teachings in Christian churches today and those teachings JUST. AREN’T. BIBLICAL…..PERIOD!!!!!!

==============================

TRUE, BIBLICAL JESUS/YESHUA WORSHIP

1). Worships on the TRUE 7th-day Biblical Sabbath (notice that Jesus and his disciples kept the 7th day Sabbath during the times of New Testament).

2). Does NOT celebrate or partake in any PAGAN HOLIDAYS such as Saturnalia/Christmas, Februar/Ester/Easter, Samhain/Halloween, etc.

3). CELEBRATES JESUS/YESHUA FULLY in the biblical feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Atonement, Trumpets, Tabernacles. There’s also 2 Minor Feasts of Purim & Chanukah).

4). Worships Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua who CREATED the Sun, thereby worshiping the creator and not the “created”.

5). EMBRACES the Jewishness of Jesus and the Old Testament and combines it WITH the New Testament since God/Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and forevermore, he’s EVERLASTING!

6). EMBRACES the Old Testament and realizes that the New Testament is just a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament, with Jesus Christ/Yeshua at its head, the chief cornerstone. Jesus/Yeshua actually made “pre-flesh” appearances in the Old Testament: these are known as “Christophanies” (look it up).

7). Is ONE body, ONE church, ONE gospel, and ONE Jesus/Yeshua who NEVER CHANGES; IS EVERLASTING from the End to the Beginning…..Realizes that Revelation is the CENTRAL CONCLUSION of the bible and that the bible (Old and New Testament) is ONE COMPLETE TESTAMENT OF GOD/JESUS ALMIGHY/YESHUA!

CONCLUSION: Messianic Judaism/Jewish-roots Christianity worships the TRUE, BIBLICAL YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, on the TRUE 7th day biblical (“God-sanctified”) Sabbath, with the TRUE gospel of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty with the TRUE “church model”. It embraces BIBLICAL PRACTICES such as full water immersion baptism, baptism IMMEDIATELY upon first believing, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS, repentance of sins, fasting, prayer, and being saved by grace through faith + obedience.

However, also please remember that Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ calls us to do HIS will in our lives, as well…. 

Remember that Jesus said in John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments” and in Matthew 7:21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven”.

Therefore, which Jesus Christ/Yeshua do you serve? The biblical one — the one displayed in both the Old AND New Testament? Or the NON-BIBLICAL one? Think about that long and hard, folks! Mankind has always had their “traditions”. But do their “traditions” line up with the bible? If not, WHY? You will NEVER see the Easter bunny and Santa Claus in the bible. In fact, the Easter bunny and Santa Claus make a TOTAL and complete MOCKERY out of Jesus Christ/Yeshua of the bible. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE?

In bringing all this to light, I hope you will join me in worshiping the TRUE Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua of the bible and put away ALL things Pagan! And that includes the FALSE CHRISTIAN PAGAN holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc., as like I said, those holidays only serve to MOCK Jesus Christ/Yeshua! Don’t believe me? Do the research!!!!!!

And please, please do the research on the TRUE history of Christianity and Pagan Christian holidays before it’s too late. Because soon, battle lines will be drawn (spiritual battle lines). And what side you’re “pegged” on will depend on what side you LIVE ON. And what side you LIVE ON will depend on what side you BELIEVE ON. And what side you believe on will depend on which side you ABIDE ON.

We’re humans, we have free will. We can either CHOOSE to believe in AND follow the bible (the ENTIRE bible, not just HALF of it, be it Old Testament or New Testament) or we can choose that our own Paganized MANMADE TRADITIONS (FALSE Sun-day Sabbath, Christmas, Easter) are far more important to us than God/Jesus’s traditions/decrees (BIBLICAL 7th day Sabbath, Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc.) The choice is up to you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

We know from the bible that there is a “spirit of Anti-Christ” roaming over the land. The Devil is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. First, Satan established the Catholic Church based on Babylonian sun worship, repackaged. Piece of pie. Then he USED the Catholic Church to PROFANE the true gospel of the everlasting God/Jesus/Almighty Yeshua. No problem. Then he FURTHER used the Catholic Church to introduce a FAKE GOSPEL ***and*** to severely persecute the Jews/Christians who DID follow and adhere to the REAL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA. No problem at’tall.

Then he EVEN FURTHER used the Catholic Church to capitulate his FALSE GOSPEL TO DECEIVE THE MASSES and used the Catholic Church’s power of intimidation to further deceive pretty much ALL if not most Christian “churches” to worship on the FALSE SABBATH with a FALSE GOSPEL and a FALSE/PAGANIZED JESUS. But did Satan stop THERE? NNNNOOOOOOOOO…………He took it much, much further. He created SECTS AND DENOMINATIONS. He gutted the AKJV and KJV to create the PROFANE BIBLE VERSIONS of NIV, NSB, NKJV, etc.

And not only that but this FALSE JESUS GOSPEL MODEL will be used to FURTHER DECEIVE THE MASSES into someday soon accepting the Anti-Christ. Evangelicals often teach “Jesus can come at any minute”. And soon, a “Jesus imposter” will come upon the Earth. He will likely be of Middle-Eastern descent and will probably even look like Jesus or an Old Testament prophet. But he WILL NOT be the Jesus of the bible. And BECAUSE many of these Evangelical Christians believe Jesus can come at any minute (The “Imminent Rapture theory”), they’ll have NO PROBLEMS believing that this IMPOSTER JESUS is the real Jesus!

And Jesus Christ/Yeshua HIMSELF warned us about this in the bible:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 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. 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. 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: 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. 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” – Matthew 24: 23~31

And INDEED, many “false Christs” have ALREADY come to *deceive many*. But what will happen when the ULTIMATE FAKE JESUS (THE ANTI-CHRIST) arrives on the scene?

Many people (specifically Christians) arrogantly think that they WON’T be deceived by such the ULTIMATE FALSE JESUS/ANTICHRIST FIGURE. However, if they’re in a Sunday-worshiping “evangelical church” that worships in/partakes of Christmas, Easter, Lent/Good Friday, etc. that reads the NEWER bible versions such as NIV, NKJV, NSV, etc. and that’s DONE AWAY WITH the biblical holidays of Passover, Unleavened Bread, etc., they’ve ALREADY been deceived!

Therefore, they’ll be “easy pickins” for the Devil AND **THE ANTICHRIST** (**THE ULTIMATE FAKE/COUNTERFEIT JESUS**) that comes to arrive on the scene. And the book of Revelation in the New Testament gives some VERY dire warnings about those who take the mark of the beast. This FAKE JESUS will require everyone, man, woman and child to take a mark in their right hand or forehead in order to be able to buy or sell.

And oddly enough, ALL world religions are awaiting a “Messiah figure”. The Muslims are waiting on the 12th Iman or the Madhi. The Buddhists are awaiting the 5th Buddha or whatever. The Jews (as a whole) rejected Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua as their Messiah and are “still waiting on their Messiah” (no joke). The Brahmas/Hindus are ALSO waiting on a “Messiah figure”, as are some Indigenous peoples awaiting “The Serpent god” or Quetzalcoatl reincarnation. Just like Christians are awaiting the ANTICHRIST (the FALSE JESUS figure IN PLACE OF CHRIST).

Therefore, I submit to you that THE ANTICHRIST will come as a “Messiah figure” TO THE WORLD! And all those whose names aren’t recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life (reference: book of Revelation) WILL be deceived by this figure and take his mark! And those who take his mark will later be burned & torchured alive FOR ETERNITY in EVERLASTING FIRE!

I believe that the Anti-christ will be of Greek and/or Middle Eastern descent and look like Jesus Christ himself (though I could be wrong). The REASON why I think this is because Satan’s goal is to deceive many. Jesus Christ is the most talked about figure in history. Therefore, it makes sense to me that THAT’S the type of form or prototype that the Antichrist would choose to appear in.

Satan KNOWS that evangelical Christians are waiting for Jesus. Satan KNOWS that Muslims highly regard Jesus AND are waiting on their “Muslim Messiah”. Satan KNOWS that ALL of the world’s religions are awaiting a “Messiah figure”. And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, what better “disguise” than the appearance/form of “Jesus Christ”? Think about it, folks!

But it all boils down to a basic question, really. Do you worship the PAGAN Jesus talked about in today’s modern-day churches or do you worship the HEBREW Jesus talked about in the bible, Old AND New Testaments? Because remember that the ENTIRE bible is a COMPLETE testament of Jesus Christ Almighty/Yeshua, nothing more, nothing less. 

TWO JESUSES

BIBLICAL JESUS, on the LEFT side, PAGAN/$$$ JESUS ON THE RIGHT side

 

 

 

 

 

God’s Wrath is Upon His Church: They Remained Silent!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you STILL support traditional/biblical marriage, please sign this petition to urge Congress to pass an emergency marriage amendment:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/petitions/congress-pass-marriage-amendment-now

==========================================================================

The United States of America used to be one of THE MOST prosperous nations on Earth. And the reason being was for TWO reasons:

a). This great nation was founded upon the principles of God Almighty & the Holy Bible (Matthew 6:33 states, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”)

b). This nation was once friends and full allies with the true, biblical nation of “Israel” (Genesis 12:3 states, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”)

However, as many of you now know, that is NO LONGER THE CASE…….For NOW, in the year 2015:

1). This nation of America has pretty much GUTTED OUT God Almighty & the Holy Bible

2). The world (as a whole) now hates the biblical nation of Israel (and the true biblical children of Israel) now MORE THAN EVER BEFORE

3). This nation now SANCTIONS sin, such as homosexuality/transgenderism, homosexual relationships, abortion, divorce & homosexual adoptions/ “family”

4). Many Anti-Life proponents are now saying that a woman should be able to get an abortion at ANY stage in pregnancy

5). The rate of Satanic-themed movies, books, music and TV shows is at an ALL-TIME HIGH

6). SCOTUS ruled in FAVOR of gay marriage in all 50 states, which will now lead to commune marriages, incest marriage, pedo marriage, bestiality marriage, inanimate object marriage, etc., until marriage isn’t even a recognized institution, anymore

7). Many “churches” today are following a FALSE/PAGAN Christianity and ENDORSE the abominable sins of homosexuality/transgenderism, abortion, divorce, materialism, no repentance for sins, etc.

8). There’s been an INCREASE in Witchcraft/Satanism/Wicca/The “New Age Movement” and many people are awaiting a “new light consciousness”

9). Most people didn’t even bat an eyelash when girls ages 4-9, provocatively dressed, danced like hookers ON STAGE during a live “dance competition” on an ABC News clip and people in the crowd JUST CHEERED LOUDLY or when seeing the movie trailer of “Bad Grandpa” where a young boy, dressed like a girl, is dancing like a stripper on a stage and the “grandpa” is THROWING MONEY AT HIM…….(SICKENING!!!!)

10). Our economy is failing, our morals are failing, our markets are failing, our whole way of life is failing

And the one thing I know is THIS: God’s Wrath has been on America since about 2005 or so….Think back to Hurricane Katrina….one of the biggest natural disasters in our nation’s history! But with all the things happening lately here in the year 2015, SIMULTANEOUSLY, CONVERGING ALL TOGETHER **AT ONCE**, God’s Anger has now reached a BOILING POINT! ;(

Today’s Supreme Court decision making gay marriage legal in all 50 states is literally the END OF THE END!

In the year 2012 or so, it was what I and many other people considered to be the “beginning” of The End (though some people have started the countdown right after 9/11 happened). And now, in the year 2015, it’s coming to an ABSOLUTE breaking point.

In fact, I started thoroughly “documenting” all the headlines dealing with blatant attacks on true, BIBLICAL Christianity in the year 2014 (You can even click on the page there, right on my blog, to see all the headlines from that year!) In 2014, there was a total of 247 headlines. But guess what, folks? Now, halfway through the year 2015 (and the year’s NOT EVEN finished, yet), we’re already up to 840 some headlines! 840! That should tell you something, folks!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus’s 2nd arrival upon the Earth is fast approaching and when he returns, he will be returning with GREAT WRATH against all unbelievers and those who mocked/ridiculed/had a lukewarm attitude towards Him! I’ve actually SEEN a physical manifestation of God Almighty’s Anger, once. He crashed down a loud, HUGE lightning bolt right outside my window, to get my attention! It wasn’t pretty and it was THE MOST terrifying thing in my life that I’ve EVER experienced! And that was just a SMALL “taste” of the Lord’s Anger! Imagine his anger against ALL the Earth’s “dissidents” that don’t adhere to Him! That would be terrifying, INDEED!

In fact, Revelation 6:15-17 states quite bluntly: “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

It’s kind’ve funny how people never really consider THE CHILDREN that are brought up in gay marriages/gay partnerships. Marriage in our overall global society USED to be a NATURAL/BIBLICAL/GOD-ORDAINED institution that was one man, one woman and any children they had together, as a result (i.e. “the traditional family”). But NOW, the global definition of “marriage” and “family” is shifting.

Here, (**NEWSFLASH**) a gay activist herself ADMITS (or BRAGS?) that the purpose of “gay marriage” is TO DESTROY MARRIAGE, ALTOGETHER!

But hey, don’t worry folks, destruction of “traditional marriage”, as well as the INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE, in and of ITSELF, is already well ahead on the way:

=============================================================================================

Marriage and family is supposed to be the “golden thread” that holds together any society. Get rid of the “basic thread” of marriage/family, and you got problems. Look what happened to the ancient Greeks and Romans, for instance. Look also at what happened to other ancient Babylonian-type societies that “prized” homosexuality/pedophilia above all else (Sodom & Gomorrah, for instance)……All those societies PERISHED and America will ALSO likewise PERISH, due to the Supreme Court’s Friday decision to legalize homosexuality NATION-WIDE.

What that dreadful court decision DID is effectively make us (America) A MODERN-DAY VERSION OF SODOM & GOMORRAH! (Because remember that an attack on “traditional marriage and family” IS an attack on God/the bible since traditional marriage and family was HIS design!)

And now that this nation has become a 21st century version of SODOM & GOMORRAH? That’s pretty darn scary, considering that the Lord God destroyed THOSE two ancient cities with fire & brimstone! So will the Lord God now decide to burn AMERICA to the ground, too? In Genesis 9:11, the Lord says to Noah: “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth”. 

So in OTHER words, the Lord promised Noah that he would NEVER again destroy the Earth with a global flood and used the sign of the RAINBOW as HIS covenant with Noah and all living! (ALTHOUGH THE LORD NEVER MADE ANY PROMISES ABOUT NOT DESTROYING THE WHOLE EARTH AGAIN BY FIRE!)

And because the Lord God used THE RAINBOW as a mark of his covenant to Noah and all living that he’d never again destroy the Earth with a global flood ever again (GENESIS 9:12-15), the RAINBOW actually belongs to GOD and is GOD’S, not MAN’S! So I can ONLY imagine how ANGRY the Lord God must feel every single time he sees a profane “rainbow flag” celebrating sodomy and sexual promiscuity! He must be beyond angry! So it’s actually amazing that the Lord’s able to hold his anger IN and that he’s patient & long-suffering! But ONE of these days, his anger will reach a BOILING POINT and I believe that was this past Friday, when the Supreme Court a) legalized gay marriage all across the land and when b) the White House prominently displayed the profane rainbow colors on the outside!

RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR4 RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR2 RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR1

In Matthew, chapter 24, we read about something called “The Abomination of Desolation”. I’ll admit I can’t hardly sleep at night, these days. My mind keeps visually popping back to when they shined the full rainbow “colors” ON the outside of the White House! Could THAT maybe be the “Abomination of Desolation” that the Lord was talking about? The “Abomination of Desolation” is talking about WHEN the Anti-Christ sets himself in the place of God and calls himself God. Some people think Obama’s some sort of “Messiah”, I kid you not! (Although I have to admit that Obama pretty arrogantly rejects the bible and acts like he’s some sort of “god” that’s able to thwart times and laws…….the book of Daniel talked about this, folks!!!!!!)

And ironically enough, the pope calls himself the Vicar of God/God’s Mouthpiece on Earth. So essentially, the pope is literally CALLING himself Jesus Christ Incarnate with that title. And every “pope” has had that title:

The Catholic Council of Trent in 1545 declared this: “We define that the Holy Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff hold primacy over the whole world”

In the same century, Cardinal Robert Bellarmine stated this: “All names which in the Scriptures are applied to Christ, by virtue of which it is established that he is over the church, all the same names are applied to the Pope”

In 1895 an article from the Catholic National said this: “The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ, Himself, hidden under the veil of flesh”

But THIS pope, in particular……What’s PARTICULARLY striking about him is THE FOLLOWING:

  • “‘Reading Genesis we imagine that God is ‘a wizard with a magic wand’ capable of doing all things, he said. ‘But it is not so. He created life and let each creature develop according to the natural laws [Evolution] which he had given each one.’”
  • [The Catholic Church no longer teaches creationism – the belief that God created the world in six days – and says that the account in the book of Genesis is an allegory for the way God created the world]
  • “Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”
  • “Since many of you do not belong to the Catholic Church and others are non-believers, from the bottom of my heart I give this silent blessing to each and every one of you, respecting the conscience of each one of you but knowing that each one of you is a child of God.”
  • “From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”
  • “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge? We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.”
  • “A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important than the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.”
  • “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
  • ETC.

And I think that’s what alot of people don’t get. The Roman Catholic Church has been calling itself “a woman” ALL ALONG, just like the Pope has been more or less calling himself/his title “GOD” all along, since the very INCEPTION/beginning of the Roman Catholic Church, it’s just that many weak-minded individuals were too blind to see! The Book of Revelation talks about the “Whore of Babylon” who gets “drunk, by the blood of the saints”. Well, what better description of that than the Roman Catholic Church, people? THINK ABOUT IT!

[The “spiritual harvest” is taking place where the wheat will be divided from the tares. And I think ONE of the MAJOR diving factors will be rather or not one believes “homosexuality/gay marriage/gay adoption” is SIN or not. Another dividing factor will probably be if one adheres to God’s traditions/God’s Biblical Holidays or Man’s/Catholic-originated Pagan Holidays. And a third dividing factor will probably be, did we love others AND the Lord God Almighty more than we loved ourselves? While the fourth factor could likely be did we BELIEVE in God Almighty HIMSELF or did we spend the entirety of our lives ridiculing and mocking him/the very “concept” of his existence and/OR following other false religions?]

By the way, the pope has already more or less declared himself to be “God”. And the “colors of the gay rainbow” were already prominently displayed on the OUTSIDE of the White House. So perhaps the “Abomination of Desolation” talked about in Matthew 24 is ALREADY HERE, like I said. Which can only mean that MAJOR TRIBULATION will now be coming upon this Earth and ESPECIALLY upon this nation!

Are you ready, Christians? Are you ready to be persecuted? Are you ready to get imprisoned and/or DIE for your faith in Jesus Christ, if you have to? MAJOR PERSECUTION IS COMING! SO GET READY, FOLKS! IT’LL BE THE FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE! AS WELL AS THE FIGHT FOR YOUR **VERY SOUL***! 

The Mindset of Satan, The Deceiver:

One doesn’t have to look far to try to decipher the mindset of Satan. In fact, the bible gives us NUMEROUS descriptors to describe him. The bible says he is:

  • CRAFTY
  • FULL OF WRATH
  • A LIAR/DECEIVER
  • DETERMINED TO LIE, KILL AND DESTROY MANKIND
  • DETERMINED TO “ASCEND HIS THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD……TO BE LIKE THE “MOST HIGH”.
  • A DISGUISER
  • A ROARING LION “SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR”
  • A COUNTERFEITER OF GOD’S WORD, HOLIDAYS AND WORKS
  • ARROGANT/PRIDEFUL
  • SELF-CENTERED/NARCISSISTIC 
  • ACTIVELY DECLARING SILENT SPIRITUAL WAR ON THE LORD’S PEOPLE (AS WELL AS ALL MANKIND) AT **ALL TIMES**, DETERMINED TO TAKE AS MANY PEOPLE AWAY FROM GOD/THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS HE POSSIBLY CAN
  • TRYING TILL THE **VERY END** TO DEFEAT GOD/JESUS AND HIS PEOPLE
  • A BLASPHEMER/MOCKER OF GOD
  • A PROUD BOASTER
  • A HATER OF THOSE WHO DO GOOD [IN THE NAME OF YESHUA ALMIGHTY/JESUS]
  • ETC.

“Dear Mankind, it’s been SO easy for Satan the destroyer to trick and deceive you. You are all SO BLIND! Just like the angels whom he got to rebel (before you)! You are all SO easily tricked and manipulated that it’s not even funny! And 90% of the time, you don’t even see him coming! SAD! All it takes is just a little “smidgen” of doubt or a little “smidgen” about “another faith” and you faith in Jesus Christ is shaken! MY SOUL IS GRIEVED!  

You atheists and those that worship him are the most “easy pickins” of all! All he has to do is throw in a little bit of “science”, a little bit of “evolution”, and a little bit of false promised “freedom” and you’re immediately game! You never bother to check the facts for themselves or to dwelve TOO deeply into the “holes” in the “theory” of Evolution and for that, I am sure he’s very likely grateful!

True, he will be thrown into everlasting flame someday but again, SO WILL ALL OF YOU (that he successfully get to REJECT Jesus Christ and his “ways” in the bible, that is!) And my oh my how I GRIEVE for all of you! For all of you Christ-rejectors seem to have NO IDEA of the hell you’re headed for, someday!

And it was SO easy for him, coming up with the total LIES of Islam, the Catholic and Mormon “churches” and abortion/the “war on women”! So easy, it could likely make him cry tears of GLEE, just thinking about it!

One of his demons posing as “Gabriel” (Muslims), another one of his demons posing as “apparition of Guadalupe” (Catholics) and yet ANOTHER set of his demons posing as “heavenly apparition(s) to Joseph Smith” (Mormons) and a WHOLE NEW SET of *false religions* were born! And neither of you 3 adherents to such religions are NONE THE WISER! And that personally couldn’t make him happier, more than likely! 

And those of you NOT deceived by those 3 religions, he was able to deceive through OTHER religions (such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism, “PAGANIZED CHRISTIANITY”, Jehovah’s Witness, etc.). And furthermore, whoever wasn’t deceived by THOSE set 8 religions, he was able to trick through the power of DENOMINATIONS! “Christian” denominations that pick and choose what parts of the bible they want to believe in, as IF they are going to a fast-food drive-thru! And none of the “adherents” are none the wiser!

And to all you “Christian churches” out there today that follow the *false* SUN-DAY Sabbath and not the true, biblical SATURDAY Sabbath? Sadly, he’s done it again! His MASTERPIECE! Of that in which he is likely most pleased! Next to all you “Christian churches” out there that now accept the *abomination* of “gay marriage”!!!!!!! Man….just a little bit of pressure from the “pro-gay lobby” and you CAVED! That likely makes him very proud! And it was much easier than he had originally thought! Too easy!

Many of you haven’t even read your bibles and don’t even know what’s in there, so his tricking you is quite easy. TOO EASY, in fact. As a matter of fact, he probably gets SO BORED sometimes BECAUSE tricking you is SO EASY. Plus some of you are SO naive, and SO blind, that he could probably come full-swing ahead by announcing to you IN PERSON: “hi, I’m the devil and I’m here to deceive you” and some of you would just think that that *was the coolest thing in the world*, not knowing that after you die, you will be ETERNALLY CONDEMNED BY THE MOST HIGH! 

Many of you who “profess” to love and worship Satan NOW will someday come to RESENT HIM as you stand there, BURNING IN THE ETERNAL FLAMES OF TORMENT! But he won’t give a CARE about that! He’ll just likely be happy knowing that he was able to deceive you and take you AWAY from the one and only being in the universe (Jesus Christ Almighty) who COULD’VE saved you from the eternal flames of TORMENT! Though he himself will be tormented in the flames, watching some of YOU being tortured in the flames will be more than likely feel “worth it” to him! 

You all aren’t even much of a “challenge”, really. It’s SO easy for him to trick you into getting addicted to alcohol and drugs, to convince you to cheat on your spouse or significant other, to kill your unborn babies for “convenience”, to kill your own selves by committing suicide, to party party party till you drop and to “abandon the bible – KJV – altogether, for the sake of *modern day philosophy and modern day living*!

And the most TERRIBLE thing? You all don’t even REALIZE just HOW MUCH he actually controls today’s “pop culture” and “mass media”. He OWNS it! He CONTROLS IT! It is HIS! (Atleast for the time being….) And those that adhere to it adhere to HIM – SATAN and NOT Jesus Christ!

And when it all comes down to it, he doesn’t really care HOW he takes someone away from Jesus Christ and his eternal truth(s), just AS LONG **AS** he takes someone away from Jesus Christ. It’s absolutely ABOMINABLE what his demons of depression, hate, lust and despair are able to do in today’s world! 

They make his job of overtaking souls SO effortless and EASY! In fact, just look at all the “stars” and “famous people” today! Do you think they all got there just by chance? HA! They all made a blood contract with HIM – SATAN in exchange for THEIR VERY SOULS! And his humanoid “Luciferian establishment” controls their every move. So no, they’re really not FREE, afterall, as some might think, but are ENSLAVED to HIM and his demons! Nothing makes him more satisfied! (And for HIM, the longer he can get them and KEEP them there in the “world of spiritual darkness/depravity”, the better…..but MY, OH MY how much the Lord Jesus Christ is GRIEVED at such things!!!!!!) 

Spreading wars and chaos and mass disorder around the world has no been NO difficult feat for him. Because once the 325A.D. Council of Nicea got things rolling for him, it was all pretty much a BREEZE after that. Most Christians don’t even know the history of their own “church” and thus, not knowing what the bible teaches, they’ll fall for almost ANY lie! In fact, they ALREADY HAVE! (The false Sun-Day Sabbath, for one. Gay marriage for another. Abortion for a third).

Oh and one of his most proudest “accomplishments” YET (or one of them, anyways) was to DO AWAY WITH THE LORD’S 7 ANNUAL FEASTS outlined in Leviticus 23! It wasn’t very hard to convince some of the early “Christians” that they were “Jewish feasts ONLY” and to be “done away with!” Now today, hardly ANY Christians even know what they even are, let alone celebrate them! His work on the Earth working towards mass destruction and destruction of all those who TRULY adhere to the bible is almost complete! 

He gots the Orthodox Jews in his pocket! Tricking them into believing that Jesus Christ was NOT the true prophesied Jewish Messiah was easy as pie! (They don’t even REALIZE that the Jews of old KNEW that Jesus Christ was the Messiah but didn’t want to publicly admit it for fear of the loss of power among the Jewish people! Therefore, they invented their own “writings” that deny Jesus Christ that furthered THEIR own power and THEIR own agendas over the people!) The fear of the loss of power is such a POWERFUL motivator to deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, isn’t it? 

Basically, he took a 10-fold approach with humanity when it came to deceiving them and taking them AWAY from the eternal truth of Jesus Christ! One of his BEST kept secrets (as of late) is how he took all the MODERN DAY bible translations and claimed through his false representatives to create “more accurate translations”.

He (along with the help of his demonic representatives) changed and moved THOUSANDS of words around and even OMITTED several words, in violation of Revelation 22:18-19! But yet, most humanoids haven’t even READ the book of Revelation and don’t EVEN know what’s in there, sadly speaking! And my how this grieves Jesus’s spirit, for there is a specific blessing to those who read it AND adhere to its contents! It also foretells the future and warns of the ETERNAL DANGER of taking THE MARK OF THE BEAST! Something that EVERY human should hear!

He also likes to spread the LIE that HE – SATAN, in and of myself, am NOT real! He just LOVES it when the humanoids blame THE MOST HIGH GOD for all the evil that’s in the world today instead of blaming HIM – SATAN, the master of chaos and destruction! In Hindu culture, he has a FEMALE component (Kali), as that makes him *appear* “more likeable”. 

In Mormon culture, he was able to MOST SUCCESSFULLY spread the lie that he and Jesus Christ were “brothers”! And can you believe that some of you humanoids out there actually buy it? How BLIND can some of you humanoids BE? Obviously VERY, which is why his job is FAR TOO EASY, sometimes. Okay, ALOT of the time……..Most of the time………

Therefore, he is always trying to think of more logical and “creative” ways to fool people, where they’re not totally sure if something is “feasible” or not, like a dream or vision that one “can’t seem to figure out” and that they constantly focus on. And then, he can USE that dream or vision to try to take a person AWAY from the eternal truths of Jesus Christ, slowly and surely! (But IF not, he has several OTHER means at his disposal to try to “tempt” a person away from Jesus Christ Almighty!)

And to those Christians out there who DO repent of your sins? He’s not that worried………he likely figures you’ll be back in his grasp again……..SOONER OR LATER. If he can’t get you with the sins of lust or suicide, he’ll get you with something else. And oftentimes, when you very LEAST expect it. Even some of you “elite” Christians are actually very easy by him to handle. You’re much too “lukewarm” these days (as a whole), WAY too focused on Facebook, Youtube, what’s on TV/at the movies, the “big football game”, your Twitter feed, etc.! 

For though you pray for forgiveness of your sins, and repent of them to the best of your ability, it’s obvious that you don’t HONOR and PRAISE the creator enough, and so using that against you is SO EASY! (I wonder how many of you actually REALIZE the total DEPTHS that he goes to, in order to try to deceive you? Question: Do you even CARE? He will go to the ends of the Earth and back, looking for ANY and ALL types of ways to deceive you!)

Many people think he stops at just ONE way to deceive a person. But he’s not stupid by ANY means. He takes a 10-pronged approach. He tries to attack a person not just with ONE thing in their lives but SEVERAL THINGS. Because when a humanoid is “overwhelmed” with sins in their life, it’s pretty darn easy to KEEP THEM DOWN and OUT OF THE COUNT for awhile, isn’t it?

Oftentimes, when a Christian is focused on ONE area of life, it’s really, really easy for him and his demonoids to just slip in there and SIDESWIPE them on ANOTHER thing! And before they know it, that person is down and out for the count! Sad! So sad! It grieves the Lord at his VERY HEART! 

And though he and his demonoids try to project his “image” in the best light possible, the crux of the matter is that he HATES humans! That’s right, ALL HUMANS! From the time of Adam and Eve, up until now! EVEN those humans who profess to “worship him”! They’re nothing but robots and he has ZERO RESPECT for them, quite honestly!

The Lord God Heavenly Father decided to cast him and his demons out of heaven but for SOME reason, he wants mankind to have the green light for forgiveness through Jesus Christ! Satan thinks it’s not fair! He wants ALL humans to ROAST IN THE ETERNAL FLAMES like he will! Because, in HIS mind, if he Satan has to eternally suffer, then SO DO all others!

He’s not TOO concerned about the Lord’s “little flock” that will rejoice with him within the city of New Jerusalem, someday! For he figures they will be few and far between, anyhow! He, Satan, will no doubt get to have the MAJORITY of souls sent to the ETERNAL FLAMES OF TORMENT! He knows he wasn’t able to win the “war in heaven” but he (UNFORTUNATELY), WILL win over the ETERNAL FATE of the souls of MANY men, women and children! They are HIS (sadly).

For every “soul” that’s snatched outta his hands (PRAISE THE MOST HIGH!), he will likely gain 33+ more! So the Lord’s people MUST come together and start witnessing for the Lord Jesus Christ/Salvation LIKE CRAZY! There’s much time left, beloved! 

He will battle Jesus Christ and his heavenly army at the Battle of Armageddon…….and he STILL thinks (within his own mind) that he’ll actually be able to pull it off……and defeat the Lord of hosts. 

Many children are molested and women raped in his ungodly name EVERY SINGLE DAY and he couldn’t be happier! He’s also ELATED (more like ECSTATIC) when people kill and murder each other for MONEY! Because as they say “money is the root of all evil!” But what they REALLY mean is “money is the root of Satan!” Promise people a life of money and luxury and they’ll sign over their very SOULS to him! They don’t realize how long an ETERNITY is, do they? (Oh how the Lord is GRIEVED at such things!) 

And people that WORSHIP musicians and celebrities? That’s his groundwork right there! He DESIGNED the “entertainment industry” and OF it, he is extremely proud! He also designed sodomy as well! And with all the modern gay pride parades, etc., sodomy is a “much celebrated RIGHT” in this world, today! And VERY, VERY FEW people realize that He, Satan, is behind it all! 

While the most of YOU are saying he “doesn’t exist” or that he’s “so great”, blah blah blah, he’s secretly LAUGHING BEHIND THE SCENES, giddy with GLEE, knowing that IF he is ABLE to keep you away from Jesus Christ until the day you die, that you’ll SOMEDAY TORTUOUSLY BURN FOR ALL ETERNITY IN THE FLAMES! You will VERY LOUDLY and MOST TORTUOUSLY cry out for the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from the flames but he WON’T heed your cries and Satan will be laughing!

There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth and unquenchable thirst and hunger and desire for companionship but you will NOT be satisfied, however he WILL BE! For he will no doubt get GREAT SATISFACTION out of KNOWING that YOU all are NOT satisfied and THAT he was able to eternally take you away from Jesus Christ! Which is and which will no doubt, be remembered by Satan as one of his most greatest accomplishments! It will be SO SAD! The MOST PAINFUL realization in the flames will be that YOU COULD’VE PREVENTED IT! You could’ve SPARED YOURSELF FROM THE FLAMES **if only** you had listened to the Lord’s people during the End Times! 

Those of you out there who have decided to 100% adhere to Jesus Christ and his teachings and of whom silently “declared war” on Satan? Look out! Your time is coming! And his attacks WON’T be pretty! In fact, they will even ESCALATE, as time goes on! Non-believing friends, family and coworkers will likely TURN on you, when you least expected it! They will make fun of you due to your faith in Jesus etc., but don’t let that distract you from serving the one and only TRUE God (the Lord of hosts! Jesus Christ Almighty!) 

In fact, get ready for an ALL OUT SPIRITUAL WAR! Are you ready to face the master of destruction? For he is like a ROARING LION, waiting about, seeking whom he can devour. And he will STOP AT NOTHING to spiritually devour you COMPLETELY, if he is able! I pray in the Lord’s heavenly name that ALL of the Lord’s people will hold fast to truth/the bible and be able to withstand his attacks! Many of his attacks are silent but spiritually deadly.

Furthermore, are you ready to meet THE LORD OF HOSTS on the Day of Judgement? What will YOU say before a holy, righteous God? “I’m sorry Lord, my sin was much too important to me while living”. That’s not gonna fly with the Lord of all creation! For on the Day of Judgement, his wrath will be poured out IN FULL against ALL unrighteousness!

Ever seen a VIOLENT thunderstorm? That’s just a very small taste of the Lord’s Wrath! Imagine his wrath IN FULL!!!!!!!!!!! He has the ability to shake the Earth & the waters with just the mere sound of his voice! He SPOKE the universe into existence? Therefore, is the Lord of all creation REALLY a being you want to get ETERNALLY on the wrong side of? I think not!!!!! Think about it, folks!

P.S.: I pray that ALL souls that read this will be saved in the heavenly Lord’s name and that they will DEFY Satan and his demons and his false doctrines with everything they GOT within their spirit and also that they will help bring many OTHER souls to Salvation in Jesus Christ before it’s too late! Amen.

The New Testament: Trash or Treasure?

Many of us have had the green New Testaments passed out to us lots of times on college campuses, etc. And many of us were probably “annoyed” at the people attempting to pass them out and didn’t bother to read them. “Why bother to read it when I already know what’s in there?” or “Who cares?” are probably the sentiments that many of us felt, as we put it down somewhere to collect dust. But those of us who DID decide to read it, found a wealth of information in there, a guide to everyday life, and the ONLY way to get to Paradise/God’s Millennial Kingdom!

Almost every human emotion/life situation imaginable is “indexed” in the introductory pages, with bible passages that deal with each one. And not only that but it offers a much more intimate view of the “Jesus Christ” that the whole world’s been talking about, all throughout history. Don’t listen to how some preacher or televangelist talks about Jesus, get to know Jesus himself through his own words, written in the New Testament! The New Testament is the gospel of Jesus Christ and talks about the ONLY way to get to *eternal paradise*.

Maybe you didn’t know that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal life/eternal paradise or that all of those who *choose* not to believe in him are headed for an eternal punishment in the fire. Maybe you think a “good God” could never send someone to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the fire or that you don’t *need* or WANT God in your life. Maybe you’re on the fence right now about rather you believe in God or not. Or maybe you just don’t believe in A god or God, period. Well, no matter what your personal situation is in life right now, I would STRONGLY encourage you to read the New Testament, front to back, as soon as possible!

Maybe you threw out all your copies of the New Testament or don’t know or remember where you put it. Well, it’s time to take it back out and start reading it. The next time someone hands you a New Testament or you see one laying around, HANG ONTO IT FOR DEAR LIFE! Because trust me, if the ONLY thing standing between you and eternal punishment in the fire is a small *un-read* copy of the New Testament, you’d read it, wouldn’t you?

But you can’t just read the words of Jesus Christ. You must also BELIEVE them, in order to be saved….. And well, maybe you’re struggling with the idea of Jesus Christ (& consequently, Lazarus) being able to be resurrected from the dead by God. Or maybe you don’t believe Jesus Christ is an actual, real, historical person. Well, if you don’t believe in A god or God/Jesus Christ, NOW is the time to *pray to believe*.

There are SEVERAL ancient, historical NON-CHRISTIAN sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection, and consequent ascension to heaven. You can check them out at the following website:

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

There is not much time left.  If you’ve never read or heard about the book of Revelation in the New Testament, **NOW** is the time to read it. Revelation chapter 20 verse 15……

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:15 (New Testament, book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse 15)

And yes, it may seem somewhat cruel that God would send people to hell and/or eternal punishment in everlasting fire for not believing in Jesus Christ OR for freely choosing to REJECT Jesus Christ and his free gifts of Salvation/forgiveness of sins and Eternal Life/eternity with God someday in Paradise. However, it’s NOT Jesus’s fault if someone CHOOSES to reject him and go to eternal condemnation when they die. For WHILE they were still living, he gave them all the warning in the world, warning after warning after warning, and they JUST didn’t want to listen! So how is that Jesus’s fault?  Answer: it’s not. For those poor folks simply CHOSE to go there, to eternal condemnation, by rejecting the one and only begotten Son of God (Jesus Christ).

Jesus Christ was crucified for OUR sins, each and every single one of us!  So whomever believes in Jesus Christ, acknowledges their sins to Jesus Christ, prays for forgiveness of their sins, gets baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, repents (that means, give up) their sins, preaches about Jesus Christ/Salvation to others and continues to serve Jesus Christ until the day they die, Jesus Christ is going to say to/of that person: “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” [Matthew 25:23]

But whomever does NOT accept Jesus Christ’s free gift of Salvation, he will still give them many, many, MANY chances throughout their LIFETIMES (be it short or long) to *accept the gift*. [Which, by the way, we never know when we’re going to die. It could be 5 minutes from now or 50 years from now. Therefore, we NEVER truly know how much time left we have on this Earth!] But if they don’t accept the gift by the end of their life, (the gift that God worked so hard to give them to begin with), and don’t appreciate it, then God has “no choice” but to eternally punish that person, as he is a fair and just God.

And not only that but there will also be many “Christians” themselves who end up going to eternal condemnation because while living on the Earth, they proclaimed the name of Jesus Christ, but did NOT follow what he said in the bible. Of such “Christians”, the Lord Jesus will say “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7:23]

The bible SAYS that all non-believers, if they do not accept Jesus Christ into their heart before they die, repent of their sins, pray for forgiveness of their sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, etc., will be sent to eternal punishment in everlasting fire. So God can’t undo what he says he will do. If he did, he wouldn’t be God. Think about it.

The New Testament (front to back), King James Version (the ORIGINAL King James Version, NOT the New King James Version! Why? Because the NIV, NLT, NASB & New King James Versions are BAD TRANSLATIONS that will mislead and misguide you as they have THOUSANDS of word changes in them, even going so far as to change the total CONTEXT of alot of words!)

Please. I beg of you FROM THE DEPTHS OF MY SOUL! If not for God & your eternal salvation, then read it for ME. Your very soul depends on it. MARK MY WORDS.

WARNING: 2018 “Show Dogs” Movie Attempts to Normalize Pedophilia, Etc.

On Friday, May 18, 2018, the movie “Show Dogs” came out. It’s supposedly a children’s movie that’s supposed to be rated PG (Parental Guidance suggested). However, due to the movie’s content, it’s anything BUT PG! Let me tell you WHY:

The movie is about a police dog named “Max”. And the main plot line is that he’s supposed to rescue a captured panda bear (who’s been “trafficked” by “illegal animal traffickers”). Therefore, Max & his owner go undercover at a LAS VEGAS dog show to try to find the “illegal animal traffickers”. However, in order for Max to advance further & further into more “rounds” at the dog show, Max must allow his GENITALS to be touched/fondled!

There’s several scenes in the movie where his owner tries to “molest Max’s genitals” in order to get him “used to it” for the “dog show judges” to do the same! But Max, the dog, doesn’t like it and keeps snapping at his owner for “touching him!”

However, other dogs at the dog show tell Max to “get through his discomfort” by “going to his happy place” WHILE he’s being molested by the judges and/or his owner! In other words, Max the dog is taught that he “can’t say no” and that he must “allow” the fondling of his genitals in order to further advance himself in the dog show and to save the imprisoned/trafficked panda bear! WHAT A HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE MESSAGE THAT SENDS TO YOUNG, IMPRESSIONABLE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!! ;-(

Of all the professional reviewers of this movie on Rotten Tomatoes, only ONE of them mentioned the suggested sexual content of the film, ONLY ONE! And there were a few user reviews which were “positive” and failed to mention ANYTHING negative about the film! JUST HOW SICK & TWISTED HAS OUR SOCIETY BECOME?????? ;-(

But folks, this is just a small part of a much bigger picture: they (the radical left & Hollywood) are attempting to “normalize” pedophilia! (Many of them likely being pedophiles THEMSELVES!) In fact, Corey Feldman & Elijah Wood have both most recently come out and said that pedophilia’s one of THE BIGGEST problems in Hollywood! (But again, that shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone as LA./Hollywood is like the central APEX of Satan’s main “control center!”)

In fact, there’s even been some left-wing psychiatrists who are now trying to “redefine” what pedophilia is, just like when left-leaning psychiatrists in the 70’s went about to “redefine” homosexuality! In 1968, homosexuality was defined in the DSM-II as a “mental disorder”. Because think about it, folks: it’s just not biologically normal to sexually desire another human being whom you’re not able to biologically procreate with! It just doesn’t make any physiological sense, in true clinical terms! That’s WHY it was listed as a mental illness. However, “homosexuals” wanted the definition to change! So they changed it! And now, it seems the radical left is trying to UN-DO other “Taboos” as well!

When they legalized gay marriage back in 2015, I knew it was only gonna be a matter of time before they started to try to pre-condition society to accept that which wasn’t normal: “transgender men in womens’ bathrooms, dressing rooms & locker rooms”, seeing incest as “not so bad”, seeing “commune marriage” as “not so bad”, and now trying to make pedophilia seem “not so bad!”

In fact, Satan’s got people (and parents) SO deceived, that if you go look at some of the user reviews underneath the 2018 movie “Show Dogs”, you will notice many parents and grandparents talking about how “cute” the movie was, TOTALLY IGNORING the fact about the PREMISE of the movie seemed to be CENTERED on the dog Max “letting” people touch his genitals! Other user reviews stated that most of the movie’s so-called “humor” seemed to rely on the dog’s genitals and backside!

Well folks, child sexual abuse &/or child (sexual) trafficking is NO LAUGHING MATTER! And while the character’s a dog and not a kid; to a small child, it doesn’t matter! Kids INTERNALIZE THINGS! So just WHAT kind of message does that send to young, impressionable children who, after seeing this movie, will think that in order to be someone in life, they “must” let pedophiles touch them (even if they don’t want to be touched) and just “go to their happy place” while being raped/molested?

Some critics say that the film accurately portrays what happens during a dog show and that a dog’s genitals really ARE touched/inspected during a dog show. Well, I just got one question: WHO thought up THAT one? Like, seriously? Who had the original idea that a dog’s genitals should ever be molested at a dog show? For ANY reason? THAT person must some some real SICKO! I’m surprised any and all other people didn’t REBEL against that “dog show rule” LONG AGO!

But see, folks? That’s how Satan rolls……he comes at people with SUCH shocking things that they’re just too SHOCKED to react! In fact, most of the parents sat through the whole entire movie, instead of getting up and walking out of the theater IMMEDIATELY! I’m sad & sickened that we’ve now come at such a point in society where people aren’t even protesting anything anymore! People just seem to have this lukewarm attitude like, “Oh well, there’s nothing we can do, it’s just the sign of the times!” And ya know what, folks? It’s because of that type of attitude that evil PERSISTS in the world!

I just SEETHE with anger when I think about all the things this so-called child movie tries to portray (through dogs). Basically, just replace the dogs with children and what do you get? Child molestation, child trafficking, child rape, child sodomy. NOT GOOD, FOLKS! NOT GOOD! The makers of the movie claim they had NO IDEA that the movie would have such a controversy with it. AS IF! They put HOURS and HOURS of production and PLANNING into it. What, it never occurred to them EVEN ONCE that maybe it wasn’t such a great idea to have “dog molesting” in a CHILDREN’S MOVIE?

I’m sorry folks but I could go on and on and on about how ANGRY this movie and its premise makes me! Children are innocent & precious! They are tomorrow’s future! They should be allowed to be kids for as long as possible! (As if they don’t ALREADY have enough things in today’s world that are attempting to rob them of their innocence!?) When I see movies like THIS, or things such as Toddlers & Tiaras, I am SICKENED TO THE CORE at what I see! WHAT HAS OUR WORLD COME TO, FOLKS?

Write or call your local theater wherever they’re showing the movie! Write several scathing Facebook posts about it! Start a petition to pull the movies from theaters! Warn all your friends & family NOT to take their kids to the movie! Flood Rotten Tomatoes and Fandango with negative reviews! BOYCOTT theaters until they pull the movie! (Even if they pull the controversial scenes from the movie, BOYCOTT the movie, anyways!) Because we must ALL send a message to the godless left that movies like this will NOT be tolerated in any way, shape or form!

When Prophets FEARED: God’s Response

Hebrews 11:6-8 states: “BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek himBy faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went”

All the great prophets of the bible had FAITH! No doubt about it! And I think alot of us tend to forget that. For when evil PREVAILS, many a Christian (myself included at times, I admit) can feel SO depressed and SO disheartened and discouraged that it’s hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel, sort’ve speak. Things can just FEEL so helpless, at times! (Believe me, I know!)

So what are we as Christians to do when it feels like the whole entire world and society as well as certain “life circumstances” are against us? Cause we KNOW from the bible that many of the Lord’s prophets (as listed above) had FAITH but were there ever any times when the Lord’s prophets were AFRAID? And the answer is YES! Let us examine:

1). Psalm 38 (written by David – likely before he was King and “on the run” from King Saul) declares:

O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation”. 

2). And then there is the case of Elijah, who was “on the run” from Jezebel (& King Ahab) after Jezebel had threatened his life! We read about this in 1 Kings 19: 1-4

And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time. And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers”

3). And let us also not forget Jonah, who FLED from the presence of the Lord when the Lord commanded him to go to Nineveh, a totally EVIL city that had been founded by NIMROD (Noah’s great-grandson!)

This is recorded in Jonah 1: 1-3Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, ‘Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me’. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord”

4). Moses – He was AFRAID to go before the people of Israel to inform them that the Lord God told him that He was gonna try to “secure their permanent release from Egypt” by (gasp!) “going before Pharaoh”! Why? Because he was afraid the people wouldn’t believe him, etc.! 

Exodus 3:10 records the Lord’s decree unto Moses: “Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt”. So here, the Lord’s COMMANDING Moses to go to Pharaoh, one of THE MOST intimidating characters in Eygpt! So, understandably, Moses is a just a little bit “nervous” over this. 

Next verse (11): “And Moses said unto God, ‘Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?’

Verse 12: The Lord’s response to Moses: “And he said, ‘Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain”. 

Verse 13: Moses’s response back to the Lord: “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?”

Verse 14: Lord’s response to Moses once more: “And God said unto Moses, ‘I Am That I Am’: and he said, ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you'”.

Verse 15: Lord’s additional response to Moses: “And God said moreover unto Moses, ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations”.

So here we got FOUR separate instances in which the prophets of the Lord were either SCARED/AFRAID (David & Moses), FLEEING from ENEMIES of the Lord (Elijah) or FLEEING *FROM* the presence of the Lord (Jonah). And though there may be other instances in which prophets/followers of the Lord were afraid, those are the top three mentioned in the bible. But guess what, folks?

5). EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was AFRAID in the Garden of Gethsemane:

Matthew 26: 36-39Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt“.

 

So here in the above passage, we see that Jesus is (gasp!) AFRAID! This is the ONE and ONLY time throughout the entire New Testament when Jesus is TRULY afraid! Why? Because he KNOWS that soon, when he is crucified for the sins of mankind, that he’ll temporarily be OUTSIDE OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER (since the Heavenly Father is SO holy, that he can not “JOIN WITH/CONNECT TO” any “sin” – and so thus – when Jesus KNEW that he was to BECOME “SIN”/THE “SACRIFICIAL LAMB” FOR ALL OF MANKIND, He, the Holy Son of God, knew that he’d be temporarily separated from the Holy Divine presence of the Heavenly Father AS he, the Holy Son of God, “BECAME SIN for ALL”).

Not to mention that Jesus was likely afraid of dying! He was BORN into a human lifetime. He was fully God AND fully human. He knew all about living as a “human” and what all humans experience during their “lifetimes”. But what he likely did NOT yet know at this point in time was about the ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OF DEATH! He had been born and lived as a human but yet, he had never DIED as one! He was likely afraid, for this was something he had NEVER, EVER experienced before and likely really didn’t know WHAT all to expect, at that point in time.

Luke 22:44 records: “And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground

 

So here in Luke 22:44, we can see that Jesus was SO deathly afraid and SO anguished, that BEADS OF SWEAT were POURING to the ground, AS he prayed IN ANGUISH and with GREAT, GREAT ANXIETY!

However, WHEN Jesus added the Nevertheless, not as I wilt but as thou wilt to his highly anguished prayer, he was more or less saying that he ONLY wanted the cup of suffering to pass from him IF it was God the Heavenly Father’s will. Otherwise, he more or less said that he was WILLING to go through all the suffering he was about to endure (even AS terrifyingly AFRAID as he was, at that time), IF it was the Heavenly Father’s will, which it WAS! That is what’s known as “having faith in times of fear!” And it’s no doubt something that we ALL need to know and learn how to do!

So there you have it, folks! EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was greatly afraid at ONE point during his time on Earth! So what does that tell ya, people? It tells us that no matter HOW afraid you are, now matter HOW terrified or full of “anguish” that you feel over life/certain life circumstances, and/or no matter HOW disheartened you feel over something/someone, JESUS UNDERSTANDS! The PROPHETS OF OLD understand! JESUS’S DISCIPLES understand! For they THEMSELVES were once in YOUR shoes! So remember that, folks!

[[Let us not ALSO forget that Matthew 26:56 records “But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and FLED“. Translation? EVEN Jesus’s own DISCIPLES were afraid, at one point!]]

But now that we know HOW and WHY the following four biblical characters were afraid (Jesus being one of them), how did God (the Heavenly Father) respond to each of the four? Let us turn to the bible for the answer:

1). DAVID:

1 Samuel 31: 3-4 records: “And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers hit him; and he was sore wounded of the archers. Then said Saul unto his armour-bearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and thrust me through, and abuse me. But his armour-bearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul took a sword, and fell upon it”. 

Translation? Saul was punished seven-fold for trying to pursue and kill David (the “future king of Israel”). Saul had his “kingdom” stripped from him and given to another (which was David), and fell upon his own sword (dying a most disgraceful death), not to mention many other things.

In fact, in 2 Samuel 3, we read: “Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker“. Translation? There was a long “permanent conflict” between those who were loyal to King Saul and those who were loyal to David. And in the end, those loyal to Saul became fewer & fewer in number, while those loyal to David increased by “leaps and bounds”.

And David, when he REPENTED of his sins, (namely, the sin of “adultery” with Uriah’s wife Bethsheba, and then later having Uriah killed), he is later rewarded with yet ANOTHER son by Bethsheba (which was Solomon), among many other things.

In fact, 2 Samuel 12:8 records THIS: “And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things”.

Translation? When King David REPENTED of his sins and told the Lord point-blank ABOUT his fear & his anxiety, and had FAITH in the Lord’s forgiveness, the Lord rewarded him seven-fold with long life, a lasting kingdom and “over-abundance”.

Translation? God is there telling David that if what David attained had NOT been enough for him, that the Lord would’ve given onto him MUCH, MUCH MORE! Wow! What a statement! But then again, we only have to flip through the books of the bible to see HOW the Lord God BLESSES THOSE WHO REPENT OF THEIR FEAR(S) AND COME CLEAN ABOUT THEIR FEAR(S) AND/OR THEIR SINFUL ACTIONS!

2). ELIJAH:

1 Kings 19: 5-9 records:And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eatAnd he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.

And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of GodAnd he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, ‘What doest thou here, Elijah’?”

In 1 Kings 19:14, Elijah responds AGAIN and says to the Lord: “…..’I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away'”.

And the response from the Lord is found in 1 Kings 19: 15-18: “And the Lord said unto him, ‘Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room. 

And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him‘”. 

In other words, the Lord here is informing Elijah that he’s not the ONLY ONE who adheres to the Lord’s decrees……..that there are SEVEN THOUSAND Israelites who had NOT bowed down unto Baal, nor had kissed him (as if to imply that those who worshiped Baal actually KISSED his idol/image or something?)

Therefore, the Lord here is letting Elijah know that he’s NOT ALONE! This must’ve been a very, very comforting confirmation for Elijah while he lived out the rest of his days. That no doubt BOOSTED Elijah’s faith in the Lord. And when Elijah knew he was about to be taken from the Earth, he informed his “apprentice”, EliSHAH that he would soon be taken from him. And as he and EliSHAH were on the River Jordan…….

2 Kings 11 records:As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind

Conclusion? Even though this “highly powerful prophet of God” fled for his LIFE from Jezebel, God REWARDED him for “listening to the angel” and “coming back to service for the Lord”. God was SO pleased with Elijah and his faith after that, that he took him up to Heaven (much like Enoch!)

3). JONAH:

In Jonah 3:10, we read:And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not”. 

Okay, so in above passage, Jonah (albeit reluctantly), goes into the city of Nineveh and preaches the Lord’s message to the people! And as a result, THEY REPENT! All of them, EVEN THE KING! Wow!

But yet, Jonah was still a little “perturbed” at that point in time as Jonah 4:1-6 records:

But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry. And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O Lord, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil. Therefore now, O Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live”.

Then said the Lord, ‘Doest thou well to be angry?’ So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city. And the Lord God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd

Translation? Jonah kind’ve sort’ve takes a “chill pill”, realizes he shouldn’t be so angry and goes to “chill out” while he awaits to see what becomes of the city (if anything) of Nineveh. And the Lord God is SO PLEASED with Jonah for “taking a breather” that he decides to help Jonah stay cool in the hot, humid climate by placing a shadow gourd over his head to help him stay cool. And when Jonah saw this, the bible records that he was EXCEEDINGLY GLAD!

But again, only by FAITH did Jonah go into that dreadfully evil city, in the first place! Even if it was somewhat of a reluctant faith, it was faith nonetheless!

4). MOSES:

Exodus 10:28-29And Pharaoh said unto him, ‘Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die’. And Moses said, ‘Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more’“. 

Exodus 14:8 “And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand”

Exodus 14:10And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were SORE AFRAID: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord

Exodus 14: 13-14And Moses said unto the people, ‘Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever, The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace

Exodus 14: 26-31 “And the Lord said unto Moses, ‘Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen‘. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.

And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of themBut the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 

Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant Moses”

5). JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF:

In Luke 22:42, Jesus is SO afraid, that he starts praying the following: Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done”

So how does God respond, you might wonder? The answer comes one verse later, in Luke 22:43! “And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him”.

Therefore, the Lord God Heavenly Father SAW Jesus’s anxiety, HEARD his highly anguished prayer and sent one of the angels from heaven to strengthen him.

In Mark 16:6, we read: “And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him“. So here, we see that Jesus had resurrected from the dead (thus, ending the so-called time of “temporary separation” from God, the Heavenly Father!)

And later on in Mark, we read in Mark 16:19 “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God”

Therefore, Jesus was blessed with ETERNAL GLORY for all the “submissive” fear and suffering he had endured the night BEFORE his crucifixion, as well as the day OF his crucifixion, as well as the time right AFTER his crucifixion and right BEFORE his resurrection. And the time between his resurrection and ascension up to Heaven, was not only to PROVE his words that testified of God the Heavenly Father but also (I think) for the Lord God to give him some time once more to spend with his “friends”, his disciples.

5). As for Jesus’s disciples, they were no doubt “rewarded” by God for their FAITH by increasing the Lord’s kingdom “by leaps & bounds”. And not only that but their names will be recorded ON THE WALLS of the heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” today! How COOL is that? 😉

FINAL CONCLUSION: ALL prophets of the Lord had times when they fell short of the mark of righteousness. But the preceding 5 biblical characters up above (including the 6th group, the disciples) ALL feared at one point! However, when they REPENTED of that fear (in their hearts) and SUBMITTED to the Lord’s will INSTEAD, they were ALL BLESSED!

David’s kingdom was determined to be eternal by God, Moses successfully lead the ENTIRE nation of Israel out of Egypt, the city of Nineveh was spared God’s Wrath at the preaching of Jonah, Elijah restored people to the Lord and was taken up to heaven, plus Jesus successfully carried out God’s will on Earth by being crucified, etc.! Now just think for a minute if any of those biblical characters, after initially hesitating at the first, had instead acted on their FEAR, instead of their FAITH? Can you IMAGINE? 

So what can get gather from all this? Whenever one FEARS, HAVE FAITH! And remember the prophets that were before you! Even THEY were scared, sometimes! But yet, WHEN they submitted to God/the Lord’s will, they came to find that FEAR IS UNNECESSARY! It serves NO PURPOSE! Plus it actually TAKES ONE *AWAY* FROM GOD!

I close with the following biblical quote in the hopes that it will enlighten you and STRENGTHEN your faith and your spiritual walk in Christ:

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up

 

 

 

 

Is The Bible In YOUR Diet?

In a previous post entitled:  “Is Jesus in YOUR Diet?”, I talked about the importance of maintaining a healthy spiritual AND physical diet (while emphasizing the importance of a healthy physical diet). In THIS post, I’m gonna discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy SPIRITUAL diet!

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” – John 6:50-51

 

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” – Matthew 4:4

 

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread [spiritual bread of Jesus Christ] shall live for ever” – John 6:57-58

 

“And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ” – 1 Corinthians 10: 2-4

 

It’s very important that we spend time reading the WRITTEN Word of God (the bible!) For it is our spiritual nourishment! And without “time in the written word”, our spiritual walk with Christ begins to SUFFER! Why? Because we tend to think during those times & moments: “I don’t NEED to read the bible, I ALREADY know what’s in there!!!!!” and/or “What’s the POINT of reading the bible, I ALREADY know what the BASIC tenets of the faith are, so need I to know ANY MORE?” (OUCH!) 

For some, it can be kind’ve depressing to read about all the wars & battles in the Old Testament (“why so many deaths?”) and/or to read about what happened to Jesus during his consequent “arrest”, “trial” and “execution”. However, it’s important for us these days to READ about all those things and REMEMBER them and remember how GOOD (loving but firm) God is!

The Israelites winning the Old Testament battles were precursors to YOU AND ME (Christians/Messianic Jews/The Lord’s people) winning spiritual battles TODAY against the enemy! And all that stuff that happened to Jesus in the New Testament was PROPHESIED in the Old Testament!

And all those things HAD to happen, in order for Jesus to SHOW US that he is who HE says HE is, and that the written word – the bible – is itself what IT says IT is – the 100% complete written testimony of the Word of God [The Word of God ofcourse being Jesus Christ Almighty/HIMSELF!]

If your bible’s been collecting dust on the bookshelf, NOW’S the time to take it back out, dust it off & began re-reading it! If you’re not sure where to start, the Gospel of John is a good place or the Book of Acts. And if you prefer the Old Testament over the New, you can always start with Genesis, from the VERY beginning! And if you live in a country where bibles are forbidden or hard to come by, you can always PRAY that Jesus will show you dreams & visions about what the bible talks about! 

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” – Matthew 7: 7-8

 

I’m gonna tell you guys my own personal experience about what happened to me during all the times in my life when I did NOT read the bible every single day and the long-lasting effects it had on me.

One of the VERY first things I’ve noticed is that it starts out SO SMALL. I’d go to read one or two chapters and would suddenly feel very, very sleepy and couldn’t keep my eyes open. And then, the next day, I’d try to re-read that same passage and would AGAIN start to feel really, really sleepy. “What is the DEAL?”, I thought. “This is much too much to be coincidence! WHAT is going on, here?”

And I kept feeling this IMMENSE sense of guilt; thinking that the problem was ME! In other words, I kept internalizing it, thinking it must be MY fault if “I” kept feeling really, really sleepy while picking up the bible and reading it. And yet, when was the last time I had felt really, really sleepy while reading one of my favorite novels or the like? (Busted!)

So then, I went through this mental checklist of sorts: Am I bored by what I read? No. Did I get enough sleep last night? Probably not. Am I trying to read TOO MUCH of the bible at a time? Maybe”. And yet, NONE of those answers seemed to answer my question 100% satisfactorily as to WHY it kept happening…….

I felt tired, depressed, lethargic, moody. I became more “worldly”, and more concerned with the latest movies, books and TV shows, rather that on what Jesus and scripture said. Ah yes, Jesus……..the only begotten Son of God who died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins?

The one who saved me during my N.D.E. around 23 months or age or so and beyond? Sadly, he seemed to be the furthest thing from my mind as I dwelved into the “haven’t read the bible in a quite a long time” club! And then there was the “guilt factor”: “well, I haven’t read the bible in so long, how could Jesus ever forgive me?”

But yet, that’s when I realized something: when we don’t feel like reading the bible (for WHATEVER REASON), there is some HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE going on by Satan and his demons. But yet, Satan is good at getting us to turn it AGAINST OURSELVES by BLAMING OURSELVES for it, INSTEAD of blaming HIM/his demons for it, where all the blame should rightfully be! For if HE and his demons hadn’t first tempted us AWAY from reading the bible, then we would’ve (theoretically) been able to actually READ the bible without any problems!

Another reason we know it’s HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE is because of modern-day news stories like THIS

1). School told they can’t have “bible class”:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-public-school-bible-class-court-20170423-story.html

2). Teacher says student can’t read bible during “free reading time”:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/05/05/teacher-tells-student-cant-read-bible-in-my-classroom.html

3). Group wants bible removed from POW/MIA Display, despite YEARS of tradition:

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/04/07/advocacy-group-pushes-remove-bible-pow-mia-display.html

And folks, that’s just a small sample. There’s many, many stories about “removing bibles” or “bible classes” that I don’t have time to get into, right now. Therefore folks, it stands to reason: if there’s such STRONG drive to REMOVE BIBLES from school and public military displays, what makes anyone think that there’s also not a spiritual war happening in your VERY HEART over the bible and its precious contents?

When’s the last time you read ANY part of your bible? Be honest with yourself. It’s probably been awhile, hasn’t it? (And if you live in a country where a bible is not freely available, my heart goes out to you! I pray in the name of Jesus that you will somehow get access to the holy scriptures somehow!) And for those of you who LIVE in a country where a bible is freely available, WHAT ARE  YOU WAITING FOR? 

Folks, mark my words, the bible will someday be officially “outlawed”. There’ll likely come a time in Westernized nations where owning a bible is ILLEGAL……Yup, that’s right. ILLEGAL! (Especially in the New World/One World Gov’t system they’re trying so hard to set up right now!)

So READ your bibles front to back from Genesis to Revelation while you still can! Because you NEVER, EVER know when that “right” will be taken away from you! I’m DEAD SERIOUS on this, folks! Furthermore, if you KNOW what’s in the scriptures and what isn’t, you’re FAR less likely to be DECEIVED by Satan and his “workers” (both demonic and human). 

Many Christians today have time for Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, going to the movies, dinner with friends, Redbox movies, sports games, reading their favorite novels, etc., but yet, they DON’T seem to have the time to read the bible! They tell themselves that it’s too laborious, that it’s too much work, that they just don’t have the time to!” Well folks, what if Jesus were to be standing before one of those folks (myself included) and he told them someday that while he’d “like” to let them into “New Jerusalem”, he “just didn’t have the time to?” OUCH! 

In order for Jesus Christ to someday confess our name before the Heavenly Father and the angels, we must KNOW him personally; we must have a spiritual relationship with him. And the very BEGINNING of the foundation of that relationship comes by FAITH.

And according to Romans 10:17 in the New Testament: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“. In other words, we must READ (& FULLY ABSORB) the written word of God in order to HEAR IT IN OUR MINDS, HEARTS & SPIRITS! 

Sure, we could ALWAYS theoretically have faith in Jesus due to Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Lions Den or Moses parting the Red Sea, etc. But there’s just something about READING about it in print that ENHANCES the experience, as IF we were really there at the time of the great happenings of the bible!

Seeing it in movie form or listening to it on audio-book actually DETRACTS from the experience in a way since those two platforms make it an unemotional, INDIRECT experience. But reading it OURSELVES? That MAKES it a personal, emotional and DIRECT experience, almost as if reading somebody’s personal diary or autobiography of all the events that took place! Now think about this for moment: What makes reading someone’s diary or autobiography more PERSONAL to you? If someone ELSE reads it to you or IF you read it YOURSELF? Think about it, folks! 

Many Christians today based their “bible theology” on FEELINGS & EMOTIONS – what they FEEL to be true or SHOULD be true – other than what’s FACT! And that’s truly sad! For if these folks would read their bibles more often, they’d come to realize just how WRONG they are/were in their “assumptions!”

Imagine if YOU wrote YOUR own autobiography, only to have one your “proclaimed fans” come forth later and say: “No, this is NOT what they mean here……they in fact mean THIS” as IF that person knew you and/or knew your “thoughts”, personally! Wouldn’t you be so offended by that? I know “I” would!!!!!! So it is with God and his holy, written word. It’s “written in stone”, it doesn’t NEED to be interpreted or re-interpreted, as it were. Let the bible speak for itself! 

But going back to the Romans 10:17 passage once more: “”So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.

Some of you may be wondering what “hearing by the word of God” means. Well, Jesus Christ himself IS the Word of God. John 1:1-2 in the New Testament confirms this. Therefore, “hearing BY the word of God” simply means to hear it BY means of Jesus. And to hear it BY Jesus (NOWADAYS) means to hear Jesus speak through the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE!) Capeche? (Note: if you’re lucky enough, you can usually find a King James Bible/KJV bible with words of Jesus IN RED!)

So, for example, if you read the Book of Matthew, Chapters 5-7 in the New Testament (known as Jesus’s “Sermon on the Mount”), it’s not hard to “spiritually hear” Jesus’s voice in that sermon, as though you were one of the actual witnesses that were there that day. You can read Jesus’s words in those chapters and just KNOW without a doubt what Jesus was trying to say (and also what he was NOT trying to say!) 

And the book of John tells us exactly who Jesus is and where he came from, no questions asked. Genesis tells us how everything in the universe was made (more or less). In fact, each book of the bible has a “story” behind it. An interesting “tidbit” of God’s autobiography to the world; THE MOST amazing autobiography (and love letter) ever written in ALL of existence to ALL of mankind – those who choose to adhere to its contents, that is! Each “book” serves as a “chapter” of the Almighty’s “autobiography”. Question is, do WE as Christians fully accept it? “I” do! 

I don’t believe as a Judeo-Christian that I can just pick and choose which parts of the bible I believe and want to read and what parts not. What’s the point in that? Because the bible (philosophically speaking) is either ALL TRUE or it’s not, right folks? Yet I submit to you today that EVERY SINGLE WORD of the bible is true! EVERY. SINGLE. WORD! [Note: Don’t get me started though on how the words “alone” and “Easter” were improperly added – more about that in a different post]. 

2 Timothy 3: 16-17All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”.

In other words, lets say I’ve read the bible front to back (from Genesis to Revelation) a TON of times. But yet, I haven’t read it in a while. Especially the Sermon on the Mount. And lets say I’m holding a slight grudge against someone. Therefore, 2 Timothy 3:16 informs us that NOT ONLY is all scripture given by inspiration of God but that it’s our “golden measuring stick” of righteousness! 

Therefore, only by SCRIPTURE am I (the so-called Christian holding a grudge) able to see the “sin” of my grudge and the “proper” way to deal with it. Make sense, folks? That’s WHY it’s ever-so-important that we read our bibles (even if it’s only a couple chapters at a time) on a continual basis so that WE can know what “sin(s)” we must repent of and the proper, spiritual way to act when we’re living out our lives FOR CHRIST! 

Some Christians have plenty of TIME to read the bible but they get BORED of reading the bible. That, my friend, is yet ANOTHER type of DEMONIC ATTACK happening against that person whenever that happens! Or have you ever read a certain passage and a voice within your mind started to say: “Blah, blah, blah, I already know how this one’s gonna end?” YET ANOTHER type of demonic attack! There’s SO MANY TYPES of demonic attacks against us that Satan uses that most of the time, we’re not even FULLY AWARE of it! 

In fact, not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not, but here’s all the types of “demonic attacks” (by means of “distractions”) that have happened to me most times I’ve tried sitting down and reading the bible:

1). Thoughts about food/eating would pop into my head

2). I’d see an advertisement for something “cool-looking” at the bottom of the web page I was looking at for this blog (as in, end times news headlines)

3). I would start to sometimes feel really, really sleepy or suddenly get a “throbbing headache” out of nowhere

4). I would get chronically indecisive about WHAT part of the bible I wanted to read, which would then make me give up after awhile

5). Somebody would text me or call me on the phone just AS I was getting started on reading a chapter of the bible

6). I’d suddenly worry about my finances (for no conceivable reason) and would frantically log on to my laptop to check my bank statement

7). I’d get tempted to read a novel, instead OR to log online to check my work schedule

8). ETC.

Conclusion? Distractions are SPIRITUALLY DEADLY! Satan has no doubt tried to put as many “distractions” into our paths as human possibly in order to keep us from reading the written word of God (the bible).

But ya know what, folks? The Book of Revelation even offers a SPECIFIC BLESSING to those who read it:

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” – [Revelation 1:3]

But again, I DON’T think that just stands for the Book of Revelation only but for the ENTIRE BIBLE ITSELF! I believe that there is a SPECIFIC BLESSING for each and every Christian when they not only READ the bible but fully absorb its contents into their HEARTS, SOULS, MINDS & SPIRITS!

In fact, Romans 8:13 suggests that we must STARVE the flesh in order to FEED the spirit:

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”.

Okay, so what does that even MEAN, some may ask? What does it mean to “feed the spirit?” Just like what does it mean to “starve the flesh?” 

It means that we must put JESUS FIRST in our lives, even BEFORE our need of food, etc. Now, does that mean we should STARVE OURSELVES and stop eating food, altogether? Ofcourse not! It only means that from time to time, we should fast!

To “fast” means to go for a short period WITHOUT food. And during that time, we’re supposed to do nothing BUT pray & read God’s written word (the bible). This time can be anywhere from 6-24 hours, depending on one’s personal preference. Back in ancient biblical times, this is HOW the Prophets of Old obtained “visions”, “wisdom” or “answered prayers” from the Lord! By withholding physical “pleasures” such as food and showing God that God was FIRST in their lives! 

But it’s amazing JUST HOW FAST a person can “stray” from God/Jesus just by not reading their bible in awhile or just happening to be around people that don’t love or honor God! That’s why reading our bibles (and OFTEN) is how we stay CLOSE to Jesus, stay IN THE SPIRITUAL KNOW, become ON-GUARD against any and all SPIRITUAL ATTACKS, etc.! The bible is our MANUAL, our own “instruction book” of righteousness……even part of OUR SPIRITUAL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY – SATAN! (The Bible is FOOD FOR VERY *SOULS!*) 

TRUST ME FOLKS, what the Devil fears THE MOST is you reading your bible – AND PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE! So remember that, folks! Get to reading your bibles again, PUT IT INTO ACTUAL PRACTICE IN YOUR LIVES and spiritually PUNCH Satan where it hurts! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is Jesus in YOUR “Diet?”

There’s TWO types of diets in this world: physical and spiritual. Jesus knows we all have need of physical food:

 

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat” – Genesis 1:29

 

“And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them” – Genesis 6:21

 

As well as spiritual food:

 

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” – John 6:50-51

 

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” – Matthew 4:4

 

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread [spiritual bread of Jesus Christ] shall live for ever” – John 6:57-58

 

Conclusion? We need both physical AND spiritual food in order to survive in the “temporal world”, though spiritual food in Jesus (The Word of God) is the ONLY type of food that’ll help us ETERNALLY SURVIVE in the “eternal world”. Make sense, folks? (Though I suppose it’s also possible for spiritual food to also help a person [temporally?] survive if NO physical food is available?)

 

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s ” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

 

Translation? Our bodies are our temples where the Holy Ghost is supposed to reside. So think about that. Let that sink in for just a bit. And think about what you put into your body on a daily basis.

 

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” – Romans 12:1

 

Many Christians today don’t stop to think about WHAT they’re putting into their bodies on a daily basis or rather or not those things will help or harm them (i.e. cigarettes, liquor, painkillers, sugar, trans fat, etc.) They see physical food and beverages as a sort’ve: “How will this benefit ME/MY taste-buds?”, instead of “How will this benefit my body/spiritual health, overall?”

And hey, even I myself have been guilty of that more times than I can count! Though I don’t smoke or drink any hard liquor, I’ve oftentimes been guilty of purchasing food/beverages based on how it would benefit ME/my taste-buds, instead of how it would benefit my body/long-term physical health as a WHOLE!

And believe it or not, Jesus has really been getting on me lately about my “diet” (both physical and spiritual). We have to try to maintain a natural balance of BOTH! For (outside of fasting), what good is it if you build up your spiritual diet but then COMPLETELY neglect your physical one (i.e. by starving yourself completely, eating really, really fattening foods, etc.?)

Just like what does it benefit you to neglect your spiritual diet but then bolster up your physical one? (i.e. you can eat all the fruits and veggies in the world and drink the most healthiest kale smoothies ever, but if you neglect your spiritual diet in the process, it is of no SPIRITUAL gain to you!)

When I go back through the pages of Holy Writ (the bible), I notice several dietary patterns among God’s people:

 

  • In Genesis 1:29, we’re told that Adam & Eve (the very first man and woman, created by God) ate a diet primarily of fruits and vegetables.

  • In Genesis 3:19bread is mentioned!

  • Genesis 9:3-4 alludes to eating fruits, vegetables AND fully-cooked meat

  • In Genesis 18:5-8, we’re told that Abraham fetches bread and that he has Sarah make “cakes” upon the hearth & also that Abraham fetched a tender calf and dressed it (cooked & seasoned it?), along with butter and milk.

  • Genesis 19:3 mentions Unleavened Bread!

  • Genesis 25:30 & 34 describe a pot of (red) lentils with bread (& water?)

  • Genesis 27:7 mentions venison & “savory meat“.

  • Genesis 42:1-3 mentions CORN!

  • Genesis 43:11 records Jacob sending fruits, balm, honey, spices, myrrh, nuts & almonds with his sons to Egypt, to go buy food.

 

Note: that was all a PRE-EGYPT DIET! But during their time in Egypt & AFTER Egypt, here’s some items that were ADDED to the biblical diet:

 

  • Numbers 6:3 mentions grapes AND “grape juice

  • Numbers 11:5 mentions fish, cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions & garlic (while still in Egypt)

  • Numbers 11:7 mentions manna & coriander (post-Egypt)

  • Numbers 11:32 mentions quail

  • Numbers 13:23 mentions GRAPES, pomegranates, & figs

  • Numbers 14:8 mentions milk & honey

  • Numbers 18:12 mentions oil, wheat & first-fruits

  • Exodus 12:8 mentions roasted lamb & bitter herbs (along with unleavened bread)

  • Exodus 30:22 mentions sweet cinnamon & calamus (Verse 24 mentions cassia but not sure if that’s an edible delicacy or not!)

  • Job 6:6 mentions EGGS & SALT

  • Job 10:10 mentions milk & curdled cheese (cottage cheese?)

  • Ezekiel 4:9 mentions wheat, barley, beans, millet, & spelt

  • 2 Kings 4:39 mentions GOURDS

  • Isaiah 17:6 mentions OLIVES

  • Amos 7:14 mentions sycamore fruit (wild figs?)

  • Song of Solomon 2:5 mentions flagons (?) and APPLES!

  • Matthew 13:31 mentions mustard/mustard seed

  • Matthew 23:23 mentions mint, anise & cumin

  • Mark 1:6 mentions locusts & wild honey

 

Conclusion? The Lord’s people (though they occasionally consumed roasted meat) tended (overall –  as a collective whole?) to mostly just stick with FISH, GRAINS, BEANS/LENTILS, FRUITS, VEGETABLES, SPICES & HERBS! (Atleast that’s how it appears in the bible, anyways!) So believe me, we can all learn ALOT from that! (Especially ME! haha).

Many people don’t realize this but there is actually a SPIRITUAL component to diet! (Yes! It’s true!) We know from the very beginning of the Garden of Eden that Satan loves to have his COUNTERFEITS! Therefore, God designed healthy, organic NATURAL food in the Garden of Eden, right?

But Satan came along and (over the years) designed food that’s very, very BAD for our health (i.e. food with high sugar, sodium & trans-fat content, etc.!) Satan’s latest food design is “G.M.O.s”, which stands for Genetically Modified Organisms! Therefore, if you SEE on the package/packaging: “Made with genetically-modified/partially genetically-modified ingredients/engineering”, DON’T CONSUME IT! Enough said!

Alot of health gurus today claim that eating “unhealthy food and/or fast food” every great once in awhile (in moderation) isn’t too bad for us. Yet, what happens GENETICALLY when we consume unhealthy food? The “fat” from that food CLINGS around/onto our organs! (I bet alot of people didn’t know that……heck, even I myself didn’t know that, until most recently!)

That’s why, when we consume massive amounts of unhealthy food, we start to feel “bloated” and the fat just “clings” to our bodies (both inside and out!) And when trying to lose weight, the last 20 lbs. are THE HARDEST to lose! Why? Because it’s really hard to get that fat clinging onto our organs to LEAVE!

Yet let me take this one step further: Is it possible that the “fat” clinging onto our life-giving organs is actually “sin” in disguise? Let me elaborate on this. WHEN we (perpetually) eat unhealthy food, we are no doubt catering to the flesh, our “own” desires, am I right? So as “punishment”, that “sin” clings to us/our bodies in the form of “fat”. And UNTIL we repent of the “sin” of gluttony/unhealthy eating by changing our diet/lifestyle (outside of special medical conditions where people TRULY can’t manage their weight), that “fat” is no doubt gonna STAY THERE!

It sounds SO EASY, yet, DIET is one of THE HARDEST things to overcome! (Believe me, I know!) It takes strong will-power and DISCIPLINE to push through it (a healthy diet, that is!) It takes dedication and a TRUE desire to change! It’s SO hard though to eat healthy when we’re CONSTANTLY bombarded with newspaper/online/radio fast food ads & commercials, when some of the people around us aren’t eating healthy, when “bad food” is SO much cheaper at the grocery store than healthy food and “tastes” SO much better, when there’s a McDonald’s or Sonic at almost every corner, etc!

However, let me be honest in saying that I’ve struggled with my diet for several years of my life! At age 25, I had a near-death experience where I almost died of a massive heart attack. I talk about that experience in my page entitled: “My Additional Near-Death Experiences”. At the time, I thought I had had a heart attack due to not hardly eating anything that day. But then I was “informed” that it was in fact the TYPE of food I was consuming that almost did me in! Trans-fat, artery-clogging food (Gardetto’s snack mix). Since then, I’ve tried to severely LIMIT any junk food in my diet (though from time to time, I still struggle with it, sometimes!)

But yet, the question that never fails to leave me is this: why does junk food taste SO GOOD and why does healthy food (overall) tend to taste SO BLAND? The answer lies in SPIRITUAL WARFARE *and* in science! In fact, I most recently read a news article that claimed that experts found that sugar is 8 times more addicting than cocaine! (8 Times! Can you BELIEVE it?)

Though to be sure, it didn’t really surprise me. Because the physiological effects are likely the same: A person who’s addicted to sugar craves it like nobody’s business, feels “physically ill” and/or “highly irritated” when they don’t get any, and also becomes more and more addicted to it (over time), which oddly enough, only manages to make them feel EVEN MORE “lethargic”/”hazy-minded”.

Therefore, the body getting addicted to sugar (through dopamine receptors) is the SCIENCE part of it. Yet, what is the SPIRITUAL WARFARE part of it, you may be wondering?

Think back to a time most recently when you were at the grocery store. And as you walked by the fresh-smelling bakery department, how many of you were tempted to buy some cakes, cookies or brownies? Or as you browsed through the frozen section, how many of you were tempted to buy onion rings, steak fries, or fattening frozen dinners?

Or how many of you have been tempted to order a pizza or grab a burger or taco from a fast-food joint? Be honest! When there’s a “temptation” to eat junk food/unhealthy food, Satan’s not far behind! Honestly! And alot of people don’t realize that SATAN & his demons are the ones TEMPTING PEOPLE to BUY UNHEALTHY FOOD/BEVERAGES!!!!!!!!

Unhealthy food is not only BAD for our physical mind, heart and body, it is also BAD for our SOULS! (Trust me, Jesus taught me that, most recently!) Why? Because we oftentimes consume it in “greed”……..in “lust” of the flesh………We tend to consume of it much more than what is necessary………and even start to think about when we are going to next consume even more of it at a future date (am I right?) And not only that, but our bodies become so addicted to it, that we start to get physically ill if we don’t consume it for awhile. And in turn, our SOULS become ill, as well!

“Whose end is destruction, WHOSE GOD IS THEIR BELLY, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things” – Philippians 3:19

Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play” – 1 Corinthians 10:7

 

“And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite” – Proverbs 23:2

 

“Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags” – Proverbs 23: 20-21

 

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make NOT provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” – Romans 13:14

 

“So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire; They were not estranged from their LUST. But while their meat was yet in their mouths, The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel” – Psalm 78: 29-31

 

Translation? Gluttony is a SIN! It is likened in the Lord’s eyes to IDOLATRY! And idolatry, as we know from the bible, spiritually equates to “worshiping other gods” (rather that god be money, food, OURSELVES or whatever have ya). Many people today “laugh” at the sin of gluttony and don’t take it seriously BUT THEY DO SO AT THEIR **OWN SPIRITUAL PERIL!**

Although most dietary experts agree that humans “need” sugar in their diets (6 teaspoons a day for women and 9 teaspoons a day for men, MAX!), it’s the over-consumption of it that becomes a big problem! When our bodies and taste buds get so used to sugar and fried foods, that’s what makes healthy foods then taste so “bland” to us.

However…..if we start to severely limit sugar intake and wean ourselves OFF to it, we can get rid of the sugar addiction that’s overtaken us! But beware: As soon as you get rid of the sugar and fried food addiction in your life, Satan & his demons will come back at you like there’s no tomorrow, tempting you with whatever junk foods they possibly can! (I’m SERIOUS on this, folks!) Trust me, they don’t call it SPIRITUAL WARFARE for nothing!

However, in order for healthy food to be good for our mind, heart, body AND soul, one must “give thanks” before consuming food! That’s what the Jews of Old did, back in bible times and I think alot of people FORGET to say “grace” before meals. (Even I myself forget oftentimes!) It’s something that I’ve REALLY been trying to remember to do from now on! For ONLY by the Lord’s good graces are we able to purchase/make a meal every day, am I right?

Theoretically, the world economy could crash tomorrow and all accounts might freeze up. Therefore, we should be thankful for every meal. Although I DO think it would be kind of weird to “give thanks” for an unhealthy meal! Because that unhealthy meal’s gonna later wreck havoc on your body, heart, soul and MIND! (Yes, even the mind!) Research has most recently discovered how too much sugar affects “the mind” (and trust me folks, the news on that is not good!)

On the other hand, research has consistently shown over the years (oddly enough) that all the foods mentioned in the bible (save for the ones that were CONDEMNED in the bible) are actually BENEFICIAL to our health! (See? Jesus really DID know what he was doing, all along, when he commanded his people to eat healthy!)

And not only that, but the foods God condemned in the bible? (Such as PORK?) Today, science has proven them to be some of THE MOST unhealthy foods! (Not to mention that people have actually DIED these days from shellfish poisoning!) So it just goes to show ya! Jesus Christ knows (and has ALWAYS known) what He was doing! So when it comes to your diet…….TRUST JESUS, not fellow mankind!!!!!!!!! That’s what I mean by the question: “Is Jesus in YOUR diet?”

HE IS RISEN!!! :-)

The whole entire CORE of Christianity rests on rather or not Jesus rose from the dead! Well, SEVERAL sources (both Christian and non-Christian) say he DID:

https://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

**SEVERAL Eyewitness Accounts**

  1. Mary Magdalene saw Him on the morning following the Sabbath (John 20:14-18, Mark 16:19).

  2. The other Mary (mother of Jesus?) – along with Mary Magdalene – ALSO saw him (Matthew 28:9-10).

  3. He appeared to Peter (1 Corinthians 15:5).

  4. He revealed Himself to His brother James (1 Corinthians 15:7).

  5. Two disciples on the road saw Him in the afternoon (Luke 24:13-40, Mark 16:12-13).

  6. In the evening, He came to the eleven remaining disciples (minus Thomas) as they met in the Upper Room (John 20:19-23, Mark 16:14, Luke 24:36-49).

  7. He appeared in Galilee to a gathering of more than five hundred followers (1 Corinthians 15:6).

  8. He came again to the Eleven eight days later + Thomas (making it 12) —that is, eight days later (John 20:26-31).

  9. After His disciples returned to Galilee, seven of them met Him on the shore of the sea (John 21:1-22).

  10. ETC.

And think about it, folks….Specifically #7! A delusion is something that ONE person usually sees. So just how common would it be for 500 people ALL AT ONCE to see a “delusion?” Answer: It wouldn’t be, so that’s how we know that what those 500 people saw was AUTHENTIC and REAL!

Plus….not to mention…..ALL of Jesus’s disciples (minus Judas Iscariot, who ofcourse committed suicide) + Matthias died a death of MARTYRDOM! So why would a large group of people WILLINGLY suffer persecution, torchure, imprisonment and/or DEATH for a LIE? Answer: They wouldn’t, therefore they CLEARLY believed and personally WITNESSED Jesus BEING the Son of God & also being risen from the dead! EVEN NON-CHRISTIAN SOURCES CONFIRM THIS FACT!

Plus here are a few more additional sources which document Jesus’s existence in general (outside of the bible).

1). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2010/06/11/10-surefire-evidences-of-godjesus-christ/

2. http://coldcasechristianity.com/2017/is-there-any-evidence-for-jesus-outside-the-bible/

3. https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/jesus-historical-jesus/did-jesus-exist/

4. https://www.bethinking.org/jesus/ancient-evidence-for-jesus-from-non-christian-sources

5). Lee Strobel presentation about his TRUE-LIFE story of going from atheism to Christianity, as well as the various evidences for Jesus’s resurrection, IN DETAIL

6). “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel (the actual BOOK…….Note: this came BEFORE the movie of the same name!!!!)

the case for christ.jpg

7). The actual MOVIE called “Case for Christ” 

8). And not only that, but there’s always something called “THE EMBARRASSMENT FACTOR”. For back in ancient, biblical times, the “testimony” of a woman was considered “weak”, “unimportant” and “not believable”.

On the other hand, one of the Lord’s 10 commandments was NOT to lie or “bear false witness”. And so, the believing Christian male disciples around Jesus’s time considered honesty to be SUCH an important virtue to uphold, that they were willing to “risk reputation/embarrassment”, even if it meant they had to RECORD in written testimony the (gasp!) “eyewitness account testimony of A WOMAN/WOMEN, as it pertained to Jesus’s resurrection”. 

And back in ancient, biblical times, there was NOT too many historical documents floating around. So to have THAT much non-Christian evidence of Jesus’s death & resurrection is pretty compelling!

[But again, I have SEEN Jesus Christ personally during an N.D.E., so I HAVE no reason not to believe!] However, in John 20:29, Jesus states the following:

“Jesus saith unto him, ‘Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed”. 

Translation? Though I have seen during an N.D.E. (as many others have as well), particularly BLESSED are those who have NOT personally seen Jesus in an N.D.E. or dream/vision, and yet, BELIEVE! 😉 

The brutal reality is that it takes FAR MORE FAITH to believe that Jesus’s crucifixion or resurrection DIDN’T happen, than to believe IT DID! 😉 

As you read this and mull over all the evidence, I hope that the Spirit of Truth (The Holy Spirit) will kindly & boldly minister to you and teach you all the Lord’s truths that you’ve been missing, up to this point! And May the Lord Jesus Bless You & Keep You For All Eternity! Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

Are WE What We Preach?

Many people accuse us Christians (or pastors/evangelists, specifically) of either ONE or two things:

A). Watering DOWN the gospel

B). Being overbearing with the gospel

And neither of these two scenarios are very good. Because in BOTH cases, the Lord’s people (after reading/listening to one of a pastor’s “watered-down” or “overbearing” gospel sermons/messages) are DEPRIVED of the Lord’s TRUE message that they need to hear and thus, there’s NO change of heart and NO true repentance in their lives! 

But again, what’s worse? Feeling as though you’re “MORE THAN good enough” for the Lord, only to come find out on Judgement Day that you’re NOT? Or to feel as though you’re “NOT good ENOUGH” for the Lord, and thus, give up TRYING and then ALSO end up on the bad side of Jesus on Judgement Day, cause you just gave up trying a LONG time ago?

Well, in either case, the BEST approach to preaching is somewhere in the middle. Firm, yet gentle. Firm enough where the “congregation” or “assembly” gets the message, yet, gentle enough where they confidently feel as though they CAN overcome any “sin” or “shortcomings” in their lives in the name of Jesus and that they CAN fully repent of all their sins in the name of Jesus! 

Also as well: There’s a common misconception that ONLY a pastor is qualified to teach the Written Word of God. But that’s NOT the case!

2 Peter 1: 20-21 states: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretationFor the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost”

2 Corinthians 3:6 says: Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life”

2 Corinthians 6:4 proclaims: “But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses”

ANY Christian who’s moved by the Holy Ghost is more than qualified to “teach” the Written Word of God (the bible) whenever the Holy Spirit drives them to. However, that being said, many Christians feel ill-equipped to “teach” the bible and would much rather leave it up to the hands of a “pastor/evangelist”. However……AS their biblical knowledge INCREASES over time, the Holy Spirit will no doubt start using EVERY Christian to preach his Word, NOT JUST pastors & evangelists!

However, that being said, there’s SEVERAL things that we Christians (and/or pastors/evangelists) have to look out for! And that’s THIS: IF and WHEN you start preaching the Written Word of God to others, you best make sure that: A) What you’re preaching is actually biblical and not just based on thoughts/feelings/conjecture and also that B) You actually PRACTICE what you preach!

So, for example, if you preach about the importance of having “patience” in one’s life (as per biblical standards), do YOU constantly lose your OWN patience with people or in general? And if you preach about how others should be more than willing to help the needy, do you YOURSELF help the needy? What about drinking? Do YOU preach that others shouldn’t drink at all, then kick back and relax and drink several beers during the football game with your friends (if a man) or go out for a pitcher of half-priced margaritas with the ladies (if a woman)?

You might not know or realize this but your “thoughts” & “behavior” are ALWAYS on display if you’re a Christian — ESPECIALLY if you’re a pastor/evangelist! People are watching you…….both Christian AND non-Christian people, ALIKE! That’s WHY you want to make 100% sure that what you’re preaching is NOT ONLY 100% biblical, through and through and NOT watered-down in any way but ALSO is what you’re practicing at home behind closed doors as well. 

Because truth be told, people can usually pick up on insincerity – someone living a “double life”. In fact, of all the “disgraced mega pastors/evangelists” lately, some of their “flock” said they weren’t surprised at all of the allegations. Because deep, deep down inside, those very few KNEW, somehow. Their gut REFUSED to let them rest! Plus some of them, after finding out about the unprofessional conduct of their pastor/church leaders, have likely fallen away from the faith & stopped attending church. Why? Because they weren’t truly being fed the Word of God, just like they weren’t being truly lead by example!

But again, this does NOT just apply to pastors/evangelists, this applies to ALL of us as Christians!

Please remember what JESUS said in Matthew 5: 13-16:Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidNeither 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. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

Translation? What does being the “salt of the Earth” MEAN? It means that we are to PRESERVE God’s Written Word, The Bible/The Gospel the way that salt preserves meat! And what does it mean to be the “light of the world?” It means that in a global world where people are CONSTANTLY chasing after “darkness”/”secularism”/”popular culture”, that we OURSELVES are INSTEAD supposed to be chasing after RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

So let me put this in perspective a bit. Today’s global culture is all about Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Hollywood, Music, Movies, Etc. However, a person can use those things for GOOD or for EVIL. Sadly, most people use those things for EVIL or VANITY or BOTH! However, it’s possible for a CHRISTIAN to use those platforms for GOOD; for the sake of Christ’s Kingdom!

Though there is much “Jesus-mocking” all over the place, Christians can use that as an opportunity to preach the gospel in its unadulterated form! For example, someone mocks Christ on Twitter, a Christian can come along and preach the gospel to the mocker on Twitter and lovingly show them how they are wrong. Same thing with Youtube, etc.

[[However, that being said, there is now some Christian music that’s gone over to mainstream (I thought we were supposed to be “set apart”?) and not sure if Jesus is too pleased with people that try to put a “Christian spin” on modern “trends”. As for Hollywood, I know some Christians are now trying to “mix” with Hollywood and make Christian movies out there but for me, the jury’s still out on that one! I don’t know, to me, that’s kind’ve like trying to set up a Southern Baptist convention in the middle of the “gay San Francisco Castro district” or something]].

I will no doubt have to admit that even I myself (a preacher/teacher of God’s Written Word, the Bible) have sometimes fallen short of the mark, here. Upon closer examining of my own spiritual walk with Christ, I had noticed some minor “hypocrisy” that I hadn’t picked up on before (before others — both Christian and non-Christian alike) had pointed them out to me. And Jesus had no doubt utilized those people to get His point(s) across to me. And not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not but HERE are the 7 type(s) of hypocrisy that were pointed out to me:

1). There’s been some cases where I came across as “holier than thou” or “too judgmental”

2). There’s been cases where I came across as “too soft” or “not being firm enough in my biblical declarations of Jesus/the gospel”

3). There’s been occasional times in my life where I unintentionally (for short periods of time) held “grudges” against certain individuals in my life, in spite of preaching the importance of FORGIVENESS!

4). There’s been some cases where I preached against “gossip”, yet, found myself being “extremely persuaded” to participate in it at work, etc. Especially when a coworker would grab my arm and ask: “Don’t you think so and so is this way or that way? Don’t you think so?” and wouldn’t leave me alone until they got some sort of half-hearted response outta me. 

5). I watched (and liked) the TV Show called “Dark Matter”, even in spite of having had “spiritually denounced” the concepts of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence!)

6). Though I “denounce” Christmas as an “unbiblical holiday” brought about by “Pagan traditions”, I find myself unwittingly “caving in” to it every year just to “keep the peace” within my family (who DON’T yet fully realize or CARE that Christmas is “not biblical!”)

7). There were times where I found myself “arguing” with fellow Christians over what is biblical doctrine and what is not, not fully realizing that we ALL mature IN Christ at DIFFERENT RATES and at DIFFERENT TIMES! For NO two people are fully matured in Christ at the same exact time! 

8). I had previously stated in a previous post/sermon about how Jesus had FULLY spiritually delivered me from soda pop/soft drink addiction awhile back, only to most recently in the last 12 months or so get “partially re-addicted to them”.

[March 27, 2018 UPDATE: I am now proud to say that I have ONCE AGAIN knocked myself away from partial soda pop re-addiction to NO ADDICTION! PRAISE JESUS! And THIS time, I pray I stick WITH it!] 

However, ever since ALL these “revelations” about some of my preaching not fully matching up with my true-life “actions”, I’m now more determined than EVER to UNDO the 8 “Hypocrisies” that were found in me/this Yeshua777 ministry! So PLEASE PRAY FOR ME at this time that I will be able to CONTINUE to UNDO the 8 “Hyprocrisies” that were most recently found in me/this ministry! Because I want and need to be a STRONG leader of righteousness at this time! 

Also as well: NOW is the time to CRITICALLY examine our spiritual walk with Christ! We’re living in the Times of the End so believe me folks, this is NO TIME to be playing around with your eternal salvation! (Especially when there’s a very good chance the U.S. may soon go to war with North Korea/foreign nations! Cause WHO KNOWS what could happen in the U.S. or the world tomorrow!)

That’s why we MUST critically examine our spiritual walk with Christ and we MUST be spiritually prepared, NO MATTER WHAT!!!! So I ask you THIS: How is YOUR spiritual walk in Christ? IF you were to die today and suddenly find yourself in the Lord’s heavenly courtroom, would the Devil have ANY sort of “hypocrisy charges” he could bring against you? If so, what are they and what do YOU plan to do now to UNDO them, in the name of Jesus? Go about undoing them NOW in the name of Jesus, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed, folks! Time is of the essence!

The problem with many of today’s Christians is that they’re starting to get worn out, exhausted, and LAZY in their faith/spiritual walk with Jesus. As a matter of fact, Francis Cahn examines this very “hypocrital” attitude in the video down below:

 

Did the results surprise any of you at all? They shouldn’t! The last 2/3 of the video is what really got me, though. How AWFUL that “teacher of the gospel” must’ve felt when he realized that his total “hypocrisy” had cost him a SOUL! A soul that was likely not fully saved in the name of Jesus at the time of death! (Though I pray & hope that Jesus had a little mercy upon that soul as that soul was DESPERATELY searching for the answer of Jesus, just prior to death!) 

So I end with and ask EVERY Christian out there THIS one last question: Are YOU what YOU preach? If not, it’s not too late to turn things around, in the name of Jesus! For HE is the over-comer of ALL! Pretty encouraging, isn’t it? 🙂 For there is NO power in the UNIVERSE that’s greater than HIS heavenly, divine power!

Jesus is most certainly NOT gonna scratch his head in confusion over how to help each and every one of us overcome our sins/spiritual hypocrisies! And any Christian out there who claims they’ve never even ONCE had/experienced a spiritual hypocrisy? Come on, now! We ALL have from time to time! Romans 3:23 says that we are ALL sinners, and that we ALL fall short of the glory of God! But the good news is that Jesus was crucified for our sins SO THAT if we SEEK him and call out to him in prayer and REPENT of our sins (that means, to give up and stop doing them), he is just to forgive us of all our sins!

I hope this message has blessed you & encouraged you, in the name of the Lord! Have a Happy Passover & Feast of Unleavened Bread 2018! I love you all! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE *CANCER* OF LUKEWARM/LIBERAL CHRISTIANITY: MASSIVE & GROWING…..

I’ve noticed here in the year 2018 that there seems to be a great divide in “the church” today about what should or should NOT be acceptable in “the church” today. Not to mention that there also seems to be a great divide concerning exactly what IS “the church” to begin with. Therefore, let us turn to the bible to find the answer!

The Greek word for church is called “ecclesia”. It means a called out company or assembly. Wherever it is used in the Bible though, it refers to people, not a building! The following are biblical examples of the “ecclesia” talked about in the New Testament. And there are THREE different types. There’s local assemblies, an individual believer, and the grouping of universal believers in Christ. Down below are all the biblical examples of each:

LOCAL ASSEMBLY:

  • Acts 7:37
  • 1 Corinthians 1:2
  • 2 Corinthians 1:1

INDIVIDUAL BELIEVER:

  • 1 Corinthians 15:9
  • Galatians 1:13

UNIVERSAL BELIEVERS:

  • Ephesians 5: 23-27
  • Ephesians 5:30
  • Matthew 16:18 [“And upon this rock I will build my church” simply means upon the foundation of Peter’s FAITH!]

So now that we’re squared away as far as what “the church” IS….biblically speaking, I’d now like to move on to my next point. Today’s culture of Lukewarm/Liberal Christianity. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? Let me give some examples.

  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in gay rights”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s not a sin to be actively gay”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in abortion”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe that the incorporation of the New Age INTO the church is a “good thing”
  • “I’m a Christian but I see nothing wrong with transgenderism”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think it’s OK to party and/or get drunk every weekend”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think everyone goes to heaven when they die”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s OK to do X, Y, Z” (things that are “condemned” in the bible)
  • ETC.

Now…….what is the common word there? “But”. Now what are the FOUR common words that follow those statements? “I”, “Believe”, “See”, and “Think”. Now what do those four common words have in common? Answer: They’re attached to EMOTIONS and they’re actions based off a person’s THOUGHTS & FEELINGS! In other words, they’re taking what they FEEL to be morally right, instead of taking what the bible/Jesus AUTHORITATIVELY DECLARES is morally right!

In other words, many Christians today create this “false Jesus” that they’re comfortable with. “Well, MY Jesus would never condemn people to hell”, says liberal/lukewarm Christianity. No? Well, in that case, what did THAT form of “Jesus” die for, then? Cause “that” Jesus can’t save you! If, for example, active gay sex, etc. wasn’t a sin (according to the “liberal” Christian viewpoint), then what IS? WHO gets to determine what is “sin” and what is “not”, in THAT type of watered down gospel scenario? Does morality then become subjective?

WHO then gets to decide what is sin and what isn’t and how the rules will be enforced for transgressing that “sin?” If morality is “subjective”, then that would mean there’s NO morality and that “anything goes”. Which would then FALSELY suggest that Jesus Christ died on the cross for “nothing”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Many Christian folks have been blinded and bamboozled by Satan, Satan’s demons and the liberal LEFT into thinking they have no right to “rebuke sin”, they have no right to “preach the gospel”, they have no right to “call out false institutions/theology” and also have no right to believe/publicly say that what JESUS calls sin isn’t sin, etc. and it’s really, really sad!

Truth be told, the bible says Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. Therefore, Satan knows he must get in AS MUCH spiritual destruction as possible before his dreadful prophesied ‘END’ comes! So how does he do that, exactly? By COUNTERFEITING and/or watering down the bible and what’s written IN the bible. Let me elaborate. Men and women were created in the image of God, made for natural, traditional marriage (and natural procreation, as well). Therefore, Satan came up with “gay marriage” and “erosion of gender” movements, and “abortion”, etc.

Therefore, when liberal/lukewarm Christians align themselves with those bible-defying, Jesus-defying “agendas”, it’s like a personal spiritual slap in Jesus’s face! Because a man (or woman) can’t serve two masters. Either he will love the one or hate the other or hate the other and love the one.

In other words, a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-abortion viewpoints. A person can’t have Jesus AND pro-“gay marriage” viewpoints. Just like a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-transgender viewpoints. If a person WANTS to have pro-transgender, pro-abortion, and pro-gay marriage viewpoints, they can have those viewpoints all they want to. But they MUST take Jesus Christ OUT of it, cause Jesus Christ wants absolutely nothing to do with those ungodly things!!!!!!  

Folks, truth be told, we will ALL (even ME) stand before the mighty judgement seat of Jesus Christ, someday. And the last thing a “Christian” person would EVER truly want Jesus asking them is WHY they approved of such “unbiblical practices/concepts” while they were still living on the Earth or WHY they didn’t speak out AGAINST “the liberal Christian church’s” approval of such unbiblical practices while they were still living on the Earth, while they still had time!

Many preachers today preach these “feel good” messages. And while it’s good to occasionally build Christians UP and give them some spiritual hope and confidence in themselves, it’s NEVER a good thing to neglect the message of Repentance and Salvation altogether for the sake of “itching ears” and “making everyone happy”.

Sometimes a preacher has to preach it to the people RAW. Why? Because that’s the ONLY way they’re gonna TRULY get the message. Just imagine if Jesus, upon first seeing the money-changers in the Jewish temple, had GENTLY and SOFTLY said that they weren’t supposed to be doing that. The people in the temple probably would’ve laughed at him and the like. However, when He made whips from cords and YELLED at them before/while overthrowing the money changers tables, they immediately KNEW the seriousness of what He was saying!

Therefore, if one TRULY wants to align themselves with what is BIBLICAL and DO AWAY WITH what is NOT biblical (as a Christian who’s seeking to live the way Jesus would have them live, and NOT the way the “world”/secular culture would have them live), keep reading:

NON-BIBLICAL PRACTICES THAT THE WORLD/SECULAR CULTURE TRIES TO TOUT AS  ‘OK’ OR “OK TO DO” THAT THE “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE – SPECIFICALLY HERE IN “SECULAR AMERICA”) HAS NOW SEEMED TO EMBRACE IN 2018:

  • Lying
  • Envying
  • Cussing
  • Cheating
  • Saying the Lord’s Name in Vain
  • Stealing (stealing credit for someone else’s work, etc.)
  • Seeking Revenge/Getting Even
  • Getting Angry With Others When Provoked
  • Getting An Abortion/Being “Pro-Choice”
  • Being in an Active Homosexual Relationship
  • Fighting for Gay/Trans Rights
  • The Erosion of Gender
  • Gluttony
  • Greed
  • Mocking Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Having Sex Outside of Marriage
  • Gossip
  • Treating Santa Claus & The Easter bunny as though they’re a “god” of sorts
  • Chasing after $$$$$$$$$$ and material things
  • Getting “spiritual enlightenment” in things/people other than Jesus Christ (yoga, etc.)
  • Worshiping celebrities/famous people
  • ETC.

Ok, now that we’ve got a clear handle on what’s NOT biblical to do, I’ll now list practices that ARE biblical to do: 

  • Being honest (even if it’s hard)
  • Being happy for others’ successes and NOT envying what belongs to others
  • Controlling one’s language & NOT cussing
  • PRAISING the name of the Lord Jesus, instead of saying His name in vain
  • Not stealing someone else’s work credit/etc.
  • Forgiving others
  • Remaining calm with others when provoked
  • Not getting an abortion (being Pro-Life)
  • Not participating in any form of “Sodomy” and/or “Sodmomous relationship”
  • Not fighting for Trans/LGBT rights but rather speaking out about the TRUE psychological damage that “Pro-Transgender/LGBT policy” is doing to people today, spiritually and otherwise!
  • Fighting for the hetero-normative definition of gender (“male” and “female”)
  • Not over-eating; eating only what is necessary
  • Not being consumed by greed but rather, praying for and focusing on others
  • Preaching Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Saving oneself for marriage
  • Not getting excessively drunk with alcohol or “getting high”
  • Trying your best not to “gossip” about others
  • Keeping one’s body pure & untainted, for the bible says our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit
  • Celebrating the BIBLICAL holidays that Jesus & his disciples celebrated (Passover, Tabernacles, etc)
  • Worshiping on the TRUE, 7th-day, blessed & sanctified by the Lord Sabbath (Saturday)
  • Chasing after righteousness/the Lord’s approval, instead of man’s approval
  • Receiving spiritual enlightenment in Jesus and Jesus, ONLY!
  • Speaking OUT against idols/worshiping of “celebrities”
  • ETC.

I felt compelled to write this after seeing a “slew” of stories about people who identify themselves as “Christian”, yet, approve/partake in viewpoints/behaviors that are the EXACT OPPOSITE of what TRUE, biblical morality is, in the name of Jesus! And thus, those poor “deceived folks” are CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ! 

Isaiah 5:20-21 puts it THIS way:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 

Isaiah further goes on to say (verses 22-25): “Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still” 

Translation? Jesus’s mighty anger is KINDLED (that means, RAGING) against those people who call themselves “Christian”, yet, turn HIS heavenly law & decrees ASIDE for the sake of THEIR personal, emotional/physical “convenience(s)”.

Why? Because they were originally armed with the truth, they KNEW better! Whereas, a totally unsaved person likely did NOT! In other words, Jesus naturally expects unsaved people to “act” like they’re unsaved. However…..He does NOT expect Christian people who identify AS Christian to “act” as though they’re unsaved/act like “the world” (if that makes any sense?)

two jesuses, eight TWO JESUSES, THREE TWO JESUSESS, SIGN 

And last but not least: If the “liberal/lukewarm church” (as a whole) had been around during Jesus’s time on Earth, this illustration is probably what it would look like:

TWO JESUSES, SIX

[Okay, first of all, my apologies to anyone who can’t eat gluten or that’s a vegan. Please know that I’m not personally attacking you in any way, shape or form….I’m only merely using the above illustration as an example of what TODAY’S liberal/lukewarm Christianity might’ve looked like back in ancient, biblical times!]

In other words, the “liberal”/lukewarm church – as a whole – (& unsaved folks) has to constantly find something wrong with God’s law and/or God’s Spiritual Provisions for his people……..to see them as “outdated” and “archaic”. Why? Because it’s the only way they can think of to work around it. Because they want to worship Jesus in their own “liberal”/lukewarm way. Why? So they can do whatever they want

Only, they’re not totally realizing that IN doing/focusing on whatever they want, instead of what Jesus Christ wants for them and their lives, and in worshiping Jesus in the way they want to worship him, instead of worshiping Jesus the way HE wants to be worshiped, they are instead doing what SATAN wants, and IN so doing, are actually DEFYING Jesus Christ by the WAY that they LIVE! (“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – Romans 6:23).

Calling oneself a “Christian” and/or a “child of God” does NOT automatically make one Christian and/or a child of God! (Atleast in Jesus’s eyes, anyways!) For it is ONLY true, joyful obedience to Christ and his heavenly laws, trust & belief in Christ, being spiritually born again IN Christ, and REPENTANCE of sins that makes one a “Christian” and/or “child of God!”

BUT OF GOD

Translation? Only those who are BORN AGAIN in the SPIRIT and RECEIVE HIM (that means, to FULLY SURRENDER THEIR ENTIRE LIVES TO HIM) does HE give the “right” to become a “Christian” and “child of God!”

There’s SO many people out there today who think that ALL humans are “God’s children” or “children of God” but folks, that’s just NOT the case! For ONLY a select “few” are ABLE to get this spiritual distinction. How? By OBEDIENCE to Christ! And obedience to Christ does NOT mean skirting God’s law……not in ANY way, shape or form!

[[[[But again, it isn’t just a spiritually lethargic attitude towards God’s laws that Christians have (a whole) but believe it or not, now even some of the Jews themselves are starting (as a whole) to go liberal/lukewarm, as these two articles illustrate: (which only FURTHER PROVES THAT WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS, FOLKS!)

http://mentalfloss.com/article/91594/theres-wire-above-manhattan-youve-probably-never-noticed and https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-landmark-ruling-high-court-says-tel-aviv-mini-markets-can-open-on-sabbath/]]]]

Therefore, if YOU want the “RIGHT” to be called a “child of God”, then YOU must be born again in the spirit and YOU must fully surrender to Christ and obey Him, IN FULL! Not 3/4th obey him, not PARTIALLY obey him but 100% FULLY OBEY HIM in ALL that you do in this life! And to fully OBEY him means to OBEY HIS LAWS & DECREES!

Love Jesus with all your heart, soul, mind and strength! Give to those in need! Place others’ needs before your own needs! Cause remember: there’s LOTS and LOTS of lost souls out there! THEY should be your primary focus! Remember what YOU and YOUR life was like before YOU were fully saved in the name of Jesus! Imagine what would’ve happened in your life if you had died without Jesus……..imagine what would’ve happened if YOU did not have a Christian believer who prayed for you and preached to you about Jesus…..Imagine where you would be today if YOU had NOT had someone intercede for you on Jesus’s behalf! (Pretty scary and sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks?) 

Many folks think his law stopped at the 10 commandments! However, during the Sermon on the Mount, He EXPOUNDED on the 10 commandments, as well as talked about their original INTENT! (Wow! That’s just mind-blowing, isn’t it, folks!?)

And not only that but commands were added in OTHER places of the bible as well, such as Matthew 28, where Jesus tells his followers to “make disciples of ALL nations”, etc. And in the Old Testament, there were several dietary laws and “biblical holidays” that STILL APPLIED to Jesus and his disciples during the times of the New Testament, as well as to us Christians, TODAY! 

How we do know that? Simple. DURING the Sermon on the Mount (which is considered some of Jesus’s MOST important commandments in the bible), he said in Matthew 5:17-18Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled

 

In other words, ALL won’t be fulfilled till the VERY END of Revelation, chapter 22! Therefore, UNTIL the very end of Revelation, chapter 22, THE OT (Old Testament) LAWS & CELEBRATIONS/HOLIDAYS (minus animal sacrifice, for Jesus Christ BECAME the sacrificial lamb for MANY) STILL APPLY!

And guess what, folks? Did you know that the biblical feasts will STILL APPLY even during the Times of the New Millennial (specifically, the Feast of Tabernacles?) Alot of Christians don’t know that today because “the church today” (as we know it) hasn’t TOLD them the truth! It’s not their fault, entirely. Many were born and raised in “the church”. But what’s sad is that pastors are not preaching the COMPLETE truth to their congregations (as a whole). I used to be one of those Christians that NEVER questioned a pastor’s word for it, that NEVER questioned the history of Christianity, etc. 

But now that I DO know about these things, I feel like it’s my job to shout it from the rooftops (in a metaphorical and spiritual sense) about THE TRUTH about the Roman Catholic Church, Protestantism (“Refined Catholicism”) and the global deception going around today called “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIANITY”….The type of Christianity that does away with God’s law, creates “new traditions” that weren’t OF the bible originally and would seem totally FOREIGN to Jesus and his disciples and/or ancient followers and says “anything goes”.

Well, let me ask you something: IF the perpetual theology/practice of lukewarm/liberal Christianity was enough to cause a person to be sent to HELL and/or THE LAKE OF FIRE someday (that is, if they NEVER fully repented of such lukewarmness before death, etc.), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that those poor folks should be HIGHLY WARNED of their sinful thinking/behavior WAY BEFOREHAND so that they (hopefully) have plenty of time to REPENT (to give up and STOP doing the behaviors that are DISPLEASING to Jesus/God?)

Sadly, this whole entire “Liberal Christian Movement” got started by the Gay Movement, who wanted Christians to FEEL BAD or ASHAMED about their “Christian morality” (i.e. the bible’s view that it’s a sin to be actively gay, etc.) Therefore, they shamed many Christians AWAY from the hard-line authority of the bible with the words “homophobic” and “born this way”. And the Gay Movement has MANY, MANY, MANY Christian people (and even non-Christian people) deceived BECAUSE of it!

And Folks, there is NO “gay gene”. Never has been and never will be. Why do you think that is? Answer: Because they were NOT “born that way”. God doesn’t create “gay people”, only society and social environment/upbringing produces “gay people”. One day, I believe it (the so-called “gay gene) will be “faked” by secular science (but that’s a whole different story!) Back in 1969, the DSM-II listed homosexuality as a “mental disorder”. Only by SEVERE pressure from the left did the DSM folks “change their tune”. Please keep in mind that “transgenderism” is STILL considered a “mental disorder” (under the term “gender dysphoria”). 

It also doesn’t help that many of today’s “liberal Christians” ARE celebrities/famous people. Because lets face it, many Christian “lay people” at large look UP to these folks. And so, if THEY (Christian “celebrities – as a whole) have a “liberal” Christian theology, then it’s going to make many OTHER Christian people out there also have a “liberal” Christian theology…….instead of being likened onto a Berean Christian who’s searching the scriptures DAILY, to see “rather or not these things are so”.

But in fact, sadly, many of these Christian celebrities (as a whole), are very likely DECEIVED by Satan and his demons and I oftentimes pray that Satan will lose his grip on them! (Money & fame can easily turn into two powerful spiritual deceptors and even many non-Christian celebrities fall victim to its trappings!)

As a whole, many liberal Christian celebrities out there today (as a whole) seem to think they can have their cake and eat it, too (spiritually speaking). But in fact, just like I said above, no man (or woman, for that matter) can serve two masters, cause either he will hate the one and love the other or love the other and hate the one.

But let me take this a step further. Are some of these folks even “Christian” to begin with, if they publicly do things that go completely AGAINST the bible? By doing so, they are no doubt CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ and are causing many Christians to fall! And we KNOW from the bible that Jesus Christ is NOT a God of confusion, folks! He is a CONSISTENT God! HE does not change, NOR do his LAWS change! He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore! 

Sadly, some of these folks are even PURPOSELY branding themselves “Christian” and then, subtly doing things that actually go AGAINST the bible in order to DECEIVE CHRISTIANS! My soul is VERY, VERY GRIEVED OVER THIS!!!!! Because not only have THEY been deceived by Satan and his demons, but they in turn are ALSO deceiving others. Is there NO END to all this “liberal Christian deception!?” ;-( 

I KNOW firsthand what the Wrath of Jesus is like! Just like I KNOW firsthand what it will likely BE like for all those folks someday that THINK or THOUGHT they were “right” with Jesus during their Earthly lives, only to discover at the very, very last terrifying moment that they were NEVER, EVER “right” with Jesus, ALL ALONG! OUCH! Therefore, that’s the VERY THING I’m trying to prevent with this very here POST (& EVEN THIS WHOLE ENTIRE BLOG, EVEN!) I love each and every single one of you and want ALL of you to be ETERNALLY saved in the name of Jesus! 

In closing, I just want to say this: IT’S NOT THE WILL OF GOD IF IT GOES AGAINST THE (WRITTEN) WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE)/ AND/OR THE WORD OF GOD (JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF!)“. Even I myself find myself somewhat convicted on that one. For example, I had briefly *almost* considered dating a non-Christian most recently.  (Notice the key word here is *almost!*).

So what stopped me dead in my (spiritual) tracks? (Jesus? The Holy Spirit?) asked me the following fateful questions: “Do you remember how the ancient Israelites complained out in the desert, after being delivered from Egypt by my mighty hand? Do you remember how they complained because they didn’t fully TRUST me or have 100% unfaltered faith IN Me? Well…..when YOU withstand MY biblical principles to please another that doesn’t EVEN adhere to me, you’ve now become likened onto a complaining Israelite out in the desert, in my eyes. This is your desert. This is your time of testing. Ah….you didn’t even REALIZE you were being tested, did you? Well, now you do. YOU are being spiritually tested and I pray that now that you KNOW this, that YOU will now be equipped to pass the test. Don’t ever, ever, EVER withstand BIBLICAL principles for a non-Christian, it will end up VERY BADLY!”

But if I HAD gone through with it (dating a non-Christian)? I would’ve been likened onto a “liberal” Christian of the viewpoint of “I’m a Christian BUT I think it’s OK to date a non-Christian”. See how Satan wants to feed off of our weaknesses…….? By putting certain types of “thoughts” into our minds like: “Isn’t that a non-Christian thing to do? To discriminate against someone who isn’t a Christian?” (when it comes to dating). See how the devil rolls, folks? He tries to turn our very own righteousness AGAINST US! “Isn’t that HATEFUL to NOT be accepting of LGBT/Womens’ Reproductive rights?” 

And yes, on the surface, it might not “seem” very “Christian-like” for a Christian to not date a non-Christian. But ya know what, folks? In the end, you’ll be VERY, VERY GLAD that you listened to Jesus, and NOT to the “spiritual voice” of someone who’s NOT Jesus! Why? Because the bible says that we are NOT to be unevenly yoked!!!!!! (Therefore, listen to JESUS, and NOT to fellow man! TRUST ME ON THIS!!!)

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”

– 2 Cortinthians 6:14-17 KJV

But folks, we GOT to remember something, here. WHEN a person speaks AGAINST the written word of God (the bible), (ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE “CHRISTIAN”), they are NOT speaking for Christ but speaking for Satan! That person, IN that moment, is temporarily possessed by Satan and/or a demon! So if you AGREE with the person OR give in to them, you are giving in to SATAN/a demon! That’s a pretty scary, sobering thought, isn’t it, folks?

Therefore, WE MUST BE ON SPIRITUAL GUARD AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!** Don’t ever, ever, EVER let your spiritual guard down or take any “counsel” from someone who is not a Christian or is a liberal/lukewarm Christian, PERIOD! Because the ONLY thing the spirit inside that person wants is YOUR spiritual destruction, so remember that, folks!
