As the world and society gets more sinful BY THE DAY, many Christians out there are somewhat shocked & astounded as to WHY that is so. Quite frankly, it’s DUE to a) bible prophecy of the End of Days and b) biblical-roots Christians NOT taking a true stand for their faith/the bible and just letting the LEFT walk ALL OVER THEM! In fact, I can think of 22 different cases right off the bat where Christians (as a whole) gave the personal & political response of SILENCE (as a whole), as each one of these cases only FURTHER damaged mainstream conservative Christian culture.
1). 1973 Roe Vs. Wade : Abortion (Silence).
2). Prayer being taken out of schools (Silence).
3). Rise of LGBT Agenda (Silence).
4). Rise of Islam (Silence).
5). Attack on the American flag (which was founded on Christian values/principles) – Silence.
6). Rise of Counterfeit Christianity (Silence).
7). Rise of Christians who support LGBT Rights (Silence).
8). Christian business sued by LGBT Activists (Silence).
9). Attack on Christianity by our OWN Gov’t (Silence).
10). Ecumenicalism in the Churches (Silence).
11). Pro-homosexual Agenda in the Schools (Silence).
12). “Politically Correct: No Talk of Jesus” (Silence).
13). 501-c3 Tax-Exempt Status for Churches/Wards of State (Silence).
14). Abortion promotion/Planned Parenthood Sex Ed in the Schools (Silence).
15). Coexist Movement/”Any god but Jesus” (Silence).
16). Prohibition of Prayer in Public Places (Silence).
17). Christians getting fired over “Facebook posts” about Jesus, etc. (Silence).
18). Common-Core Education in Schools/Dumbing Down Our Children Here in America (Silence).
19). The Catholic Church not disclosing their wealth/finances (Silence).
20). The Catholic Church openly worshiping Lucifer & having had created a FALSE/PAGAN CHRISTIANITY (Silence).
21). The Catholic Church worshiping idols and “saints” (which are actually DEMONS in disguise) – Silence.
22). The blatant attack on Christianity in music, movies, books, TV shows, etc. (Silence).
Though there are MANY, MANY more that I haven’t listed, those are 22 cases ALONE where Christians (as a whole) DID NOT rise up and STAND UP FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN! Instead of standing up FOR their beliefs, they let the non-believers and/or those of different religions walk all over them and squash them like bugs, metaphorically and spiritually speaking. So it’s really NO WONDER that hardly anyone truly respects Christians, today.
A famous man once said (Alexander Hamilton, perhaps?) “He who stands for nothing falls for anything” and OH how true that is, in today’s world.
People are always secretly “testing” Christians. A homosexual will see if they can try to get a Christian to eventually “agree” with their gay/sodomite lifestyle OR will try to openly destroy a Christian person’s business. A person of a different religion will try to see if they can get the Christian to believe they worship the same god (think Muslims, mostly). A person that likes to party alot will try to see if they can get a Christian drunk atleast ONCE, in order to make them fall. And so on and so forth.
But the truth is, Christians aren’t truly respected (as a whole) in this country, anymore. All one has to do is browse through today’s many news headlines or turn on the TV or look at 98% of modern day movies to confirm this fact. And while a huge part of it IS due to bible prophecy, like I said, the other part of it is actually something that likely COULD’VE been helped (even if only a little bit and even if only temporarily); for if biblical-roots Christians started standing up for/had stood up for their faith in Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty and the bible and its precepts and started pushing back against all the “media onslaught” against them, things would start to change (even if only for a little while).
Lets face it. One of the ONLY reasons the homosexual movement has been so successful is DUE to the fact of all the biblical-roots Christians out there (as a whole) not standing up for their faith and making a stand. Bit by bit and little by little, in just 30 years time, we went from a highly conservative society that never even “talked” about “gay”, to now being a society where a man can kiss another man on LIVE TELEVISION, LGBT Activists get married and adopt, biblical-roots Christianity is bastardized and pro-lifers get physically attacked on a daily basis and it’s just like “oh well”. Plus I won’t even mention all the “transgender media ONSLAUGHT”, as of late.
But I guess the point I’m trying to make is that “lukewarm Christians” (as a whole) have only managed to SPEED UP bible prophecy in the making, NOT slow it down. Because honestly at THIS rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Yeshua/Jesus Christ returns this year or next year (though the bible specifically says no man knows the day or the hour). And one thing’s for sure: we need to get our lives in order and need to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty. Because at the current rate of ACCELERATION of bible prophecy, I know personally and spiritually speaking that our time here left on Earth is short. Someday, ALL of mankind will stand before a holy, divine judgement seat of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty, someday. Where will YOU stand on that fateful day?
What’s really, really sad to me is that all the people out there who “joke” about hell and Jesus and the bible? On the Day of Judgement, it won’t be a “joke” anymore……they will come to see their eternal reality…….and then, o then, how they will desperately cry out in fearful tears of agony and ask Jesus to please forgive them for their previous *perpetual* earthly mocking of/open rejection of him……..but by then, it’ll be too late……….their fate will be sealed for eternity……
Another sobering thing to think about is all the Christians out there that follow “Counterfeit Christianity”……the Christianity that “claims” it’s based on the bible (Catholic-roots Christianity) but actually ISN’T……..Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7: 21-23 “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. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.
So what does that mean in plain English, you might ask? It means that many modern-day “Christians” will be eternally cast out from Jesus Christ and the angels…….FOREVER. Why? Because while living on the Earth, they followed the traditions of man, instead of the traditions of God.
In the bible, Yeshua/Jesus Christ gave warning after warning after warning about how one should follow the bible/mandates/traditions of God, rather than traditions of man.
So that begs of question: what are the traditions of God and what are the traditions of man? Lets examine………
- 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday — please remember that a Jewish/biblical day begins at sunset the night before — therefore, Friday sundown to Saturday sundown is the TRUE biblical Sabbath)
- 7 Annual Feasts outlined in Leviticus 23: Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Day of Atonement, Feast of Trumpets (which were celebrated by ALL Christians/Jews around Jesus’s 1st time on Earth!)
- Love thy enemies, bless those who curse you, pray for those who hate you
- Make a disciple of all nations
- Follow and APPLY the 10 commandments to one’s life
- Praise God/Yeshua continuously for all he’s done for you/all of mankind
- Praise God before every meal
- Get full-water immersion baptized IMMEDIATELY upon first believing in Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty
- We are saved by grace through faith (and will be judged for our works, accordingly)
- 1st Day Sabbath (Sunday) — please keep in mind that Constantine, a HUMAN MAN — with the help of CATHOLIC BISHOPS — changed the Sabbath Day from Saturday, the 7th day, to Sunday, the 1st day of the week, and that there is NO biblical reference for this!
- Man’s Holidays: Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, Easter — which were not only NOT sanctioned by God/Jesus Christ in ANY type of way, but also have NO biblical reference for observance!
- Curse thy enemies, insult those who insult you, don’t care at all about those who hate you
- Hide behind a church’s 4 walls and GO “to church” instead of BEING “the church”
- The 10 commandments and Old Testament NO LONGER APPLY
- Baptism is no longer necessary OR it can be delayed for MORE THAN A YEAR!
- We don’t need to thank God since he already knows we’re thankful
- Fasting and/or praying before meals is no longer necessary
- We are saved by Works, alone (Catholic leanings)
Notice the difference, there?
And again, not trying to be hateful or judgmental there…..I’m only here stating the true facts of the bible vs. today’s “religious culture” because I LOVE ya’ll and don’t want any man, woman or child in today’s “Christianity” to be deceived!
Many people want to think that Christmas is celebrating Christ’s birth but we’re never actually told ANYWHERE in the bible by Jesus to celebrate his birth, ONLY his death/resurrection/ascension to heaven. Honestly. Show me just ONE verse where Jesus tells his disciples to celebrate his birth, if you can. Just ONE. Hint: You won’t find it. While you’ll find passages detailing Jesus’s birth and of the 3 wisemen bringing him gifts, you will never see ONE verse in the bible that COMMANDS us to celebrate his birth. Don’t you think that if Jesus Christ truly wanted us to celebrate his birth AND death, that he would’ve mentioned it somewhere?
And YES……Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty being born into human form is a great, miraculous WONDERFUL thing…….and a TOTAL MIRACLE of God, in and of itself………and is cause for “celebration” in our minds and hearts. However, the bible gives NO indication that we’re meant to “formally celebrate it” by any means of a “holiday” or like thing. And not only that, but Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty is a HECK of alot more than just a helpless babe in a manger. He is the ALPHA & OMEGA, The First & The Last!
On the OTHER hand, no research shows that Jesus was born anywhere around the time of December, in and of itself. And not only that but what Christmas actually DOES celebrate is the Winter Solstice and birth of Yule/Mithras and death of Tammuz (who was later turned into a “god”of sorts).
Don’t believe me? Examine.
