How To Achieve The Fruits of the Holy Spirit:

According to Galatians 5: 22-23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”.

Okay, now what does this mean, some of you may be asking? When it says SPIRIT, just WHAT type of “spirit” is the passage talking about? I’m glad you asked! The “Spirit” being referenced/referred to in the above bible passage is talking about the HOLY SPIRIT! Now…..for those of you unsure who or what the HOLY SPIRIT is, let me tell you: it is the SPIRIT OF GOD! That’s why it’s called “Holy”.

Okay, some of you might still be confused so I’ll try to explain it a bit better. Look at the “scientific properties” of WATER, for instance (also known as H20). It is the SAME ELEMENT but has 3 different properties (solid/frozen, boiling/steam, and liquid). So it is with God the Heavenly Father and Jesus. It’s the SAME GOD but it’s the same God represented in THREE DIFFERENT FORMS, if that makes any sense?

BEFORE Jesus appeared on the Earth in his FLESHLY incarnate form (by means of a virgin birth) he appeared during the times of the Old Testament in his PRE-FLESH-INCARNATE-FORMS (also known as “Christophanies” – Google it). He was the “King of Salem” that brought out bread and wine to refresh Abram after he won the battle against foreign kings, He shut the mouths of the Lions in the Lions Den, He with the “Son of Man” who was with Daniel’s 3 friends in the Fiery Furnace of Nubuchadnezzar, He was the “Angel of the Lord” besides Joshua at the Battle of Jericho, He was the one who parted the Red Sea, He was the “Burning Bush Not Consumed” that Moses saw, you get the picture…..

Therefore, during the Old Testament times, there was no need for the Holy Spirit because Jesus was there (in PRE-FLESH-INCARNATE form). And during the times of the New Testament times WHILE Jesus was on the Earth, there was no need for the Holy Spirit because Jesus was THERE in fleshly, incarnate form!

In fact, Jesus explained this in further detail to his disciples in John 16:7 when he said the following:

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you”

And in Luke 24:49, Jesus is JUST ABOUT to ascend back up to heaven….But not before he leads his disciples up into Bethany and lays his hands on them to bless them:

“And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high”

However, it wasn’t until AFTER Jesus left the Earth for good (following his Ascension to Heaven), that the disciples RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT/HOLY GHOST:

And please remember: The Holy Spirit of God is the Spirit that testifies of HIM and His Word! It’s the Spirit that’ll let you KNOW things like: “Yes, this is of God” or “No, this is NOT of God!”

In other words, it’s a Spirit of JOY/SPIRITUAL COMFORT and/of SPIRITUAL CONVICTION/DISCERNMENT! (Note: It is called The Holy Ghost AND The Holy Spirit, depending on what bible version you’re reading).

ACTS 2:1-13:

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 

And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine”.

Okay, so in a nutshell, the disciples and many others are sitting around in a room, waiting for the “gift” of the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost. And this was about 40 days AFTER Jesus ascended back up to heaven through the clouds to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father.

And suddenly, a WHIRLWIND comes into the room and the disciples start SPEAKING on inspiration from the Holy Spirit! And there were Jews from ALL AROUND gathered there at Jerusalem! There were Greek Jews, Arabian Jews, Asian Jews, etc. And they each spoke their own languages (INCLUDING the disciples of Jesus gathered there at Jerusalem!)

So try to imagine for a moment what CONFUSION that must’ve caused them when they HEARD the disciples speaking, but yet, HEARING THEIR OWN LANGUAGE being spoken! In other words, when Peter was up there on podium speaking Galilean (his native language), the Asian Jews didn’t hear Galilean, they heard their own ASIAN LANGUAGE being spoken. The Greek Jews heard Peter speaking in GREEK, the Arab Jews heard Peter speaking in Arabic or Farsi. You get the picture?

And some of the “diaspora Jews” there thought that fact was SO outrageous, that the disciples “must be drunk with new wine”. Even though that might seem like an “innocent” accusation by TODAY’S STANDARDS, back THEN in ancient biblical standards, that was one of THE WORST things you could say or accuse about a person, ESPECIALLY a disciple or one of high-religious-ranking! So imagine how Peter must’ve felt, standing in front of the all those people, being accused of such things!

Yet, in Acts 2:14-21, Peter gives this BOLD RESPONSE:

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”.

By then, the Jews that had accused Peter and the other disciples of being “drunk with new wine” had realized their mistake and were amazed at the BOLDNESS of Peter in the declaration and sat up and took notice!

But anyways, there’s the whole story and backstory concerning the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost. So now that you know WHAT and WHOM the Holy Spirit is, we’re gonna go back to the passage in Galatians:

Galatians 5: 22-23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”.

In THIS instance, “fruit” doesn’t mean LITERAL fruit. It means SPIRITUAL FRUIT. Or in other words, what types of RESULTS are you getting from your spiritual walk in Christ? Are people getting saved? Are people being given information between right and wrong? Do most people consider you a patient, kind person? You get the idea.

But to further break down the process of the “fruits of the Spirit”, I’m going to personally define each one and then give you hints and tips on how to personally BECOME the epitome of each one on the list! 😉

Remember, the Galatians 5:22-23 passage goes directly in line with Matthew 17:16-20, which states:

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”

Remember the passage in Matthew 21:18-20 where Jesus is hungry and happens across a fig tree that has leaves on it and LOOKS LIKE it has fruit on it but doesn’t have any fruit on it, so Jesus CURSES THE FIG TREE? That is a foreshadowing of all the “fake Christians” that Matthew 7:21-23 says do the following:

“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“.

Okay, here’s how to NOT be one of those “fake Christians” who end up ETERNALLY CURSED just like the fig tree that LOOKED like it had fruit from the outside but was ROTTEN from the inside: EMPLOY AND EMBODY *THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT* (AKA THE *GOOD FRUITS*)….

Galatians 5: 22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law

Love – an intense feeling of deep affection. (We can ALL love our friends and family. That’s easy. Even our enemies do the same. But how well do we LOVE Jesus? How well do we love OTHER HUMAN BEINGS that are NOT our friends and family? That’s what Jesus means when he says in Matthew 22:37-40Jesus said unto him, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets”.)

Joy – a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. (Do you obey the Lord because you feel like you begrudgingly HAVE to? Or do you obey the Lord Jesus Christ because you WANT to, out of SHEER LOVE and RESPECT for the Savior? Do you feel JOY while obeying his commandments? Do you feel JOY in his Spirit? If not, you’re doing something wrong and you better pray to Jesus quick to find out what the something IS!)

Peace – freedom from war/disturbance, remaining calm, feeling tranquil/content/relaxed. (Do you feel at peace with your day to day life? If so, why not? Is there something you’re doing wrong in your walk with Christ? If so, FIX IT! And if you DO feel “at peace” with your day to day life in Christ, that’s a good sign, it means you’re on the path that Jesus WANTS you on, in life. If you feel “peace” about a move, a job change, a marriage, it means that Jesus is behind it. Note: If you DON’T feel peace about something, or don’t feel “at peace” WITH Jesus, there’s something wrong! Better examine it while you still have a chance!)

Longsuffering – having or showing patience in spite of troubles, especially those caused by other people. (Do you CAVE at the first sign of pressure? Do you immediately get into an argument if someone hurts you? Or do you try to reanalyze and reassess the situation……..maybe they didn’t mean to hurt you? Maybe they were having a bad day?)

Gentleness – the quality of being kind, tender, or mild-mannered. (Think of children, pets, and old people. Do you hold the door open for old people or help them put things in their shopping basket? Are you gentle and patient with pets and children when they act up? Are you gentle with your spouse if you disagree with them about something?) 

Goodness – the quality of being morally good or virtuous (Please remember that Jesus AND the bible define virtue and “moral good” as those people who SUBMIT to Jesus and his biblical laws! For a person can’t be a “good person” without Christ!)

FAITH – complete trust or confidence in something or someone, even if not seen (Hebrews 11:6 says: “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 him”).

Meekness – being submissive, humble and agreeable (but not sinning when doing so – i.e. being “submissive” to God’s Word, not blaming Jesus or others for what’s wrong in your life or in your job, etc.)

Temperance – self-control, abstinence from alcoholic drink and/or “all non-sinful things in moderation?” (i.e. eating a “moderate” amount of food instead of over-eating, only watching an hour of TV every night instead of longer, only being on the computer for an hour each night, instead of all night, etc.?)

Self-Application Study Guide Questions:

1). Have you ever failed to show “LOVE” to someone? Who? Why? How? What can you do from now on to make sure it doesn’t happen again? How have you felt before when someone else refused to show “love” to you in a given situation?

2). Who or what do you find your “JOY” in? Why? Would Jesus approve of the said thing or person you find “joy” in? Why or why not? What stories from the bible (if any) give you joy? Why? How can you INCORPORATE some of that joy into your OWN life? Do you feel JOY at the mere mention of Jesus and/or salvation? If not, why not? Are you jealous of other Christians who seem to have much “joy” in their lives, despite all the calamities they face? If so, that’s a good sign for there IS such a thing as “righteous envy” and Jesus can take that “righteous envy” of yours and use it for HIS GLORY! So fret not!

3). Do you feel a sense of PEACE in your life, concerning Jesus and and the gospel? Why or why not? If not, whom or what is holding you back from feeling that sense of peace in Jesus in your life? What steps can you take to recapture that peace in Jesus that was stolen from your life from said thing or person? Note: If someone has stolen your “peace in Jesus”, then that means you’re doing something wrong! That either means you’re either caving in to the pressures of persecution, you happen to be dating or married to a non-Christian or you’ve allowed someone to slowly creep in and rob you of your faith! The only way to have PEACE IN JESUS is to REPENT OF ALL SIN *TO* JESUS and get back on the “battlefield of life!”

4). Remember the parable of the sower? What happens when persecution hits ya? Do you get scared and give up and go running for the hills? Do you back off from your faith and/or your preaching a bit, hoping that the persecution will die down soon? Do you stress and buckle underneath all the pressure you’re under from school, home, work, etc.? Or do you face whatever “trials” come your way head-on, KNOWING that Jesus is with you? If you tend to run away from trials and tribulations, WHY? And what steps can you do to change that from now on? Did you know that even the demons themselves tremble and believe in Jesus? So why don’t YOU?

Longsuffering simply means the ability to remain calm NO. MATTER. WHAT. In other words, a group of people might be spiritually persecuting you. Do you give up and go running away (i.e. change jobs?) Or do you face the persecution head-on, knowing that no matter what, Jesus is with you and they (the persecutors) won’t win? Please remember that our faith is tested by FIRE (i.e. trials and tribulations). So if you can’t stand in spiritual battle NOW, how ever will you be able to stand in spiritual battle later, when the “heat of persecution” INTENSIFIES?

5). Gentleness – How many of us have gotten occasionally impatient with small children, pets or old people? Our young children are acting up, our pet is acting up and not minding us, the old person ahead of us in line at the checkout is taking FOR-EVEEERRRR to pay……Nearly all of us, at some point or another, if we’re being completely honest. But the “fruit” of gentleness just means we need to be PATIENT and GENTLE at ALL TIMES (even during the times when we’re about to LOSE patience). That’s why Jesus says to anger but NOT to sin IN our anger. Trust me, it’s an acquired learning exercise. What types of situations have you been impatient with a young child, a pet or an old person? Why? How? What types of situations in the future can you utilize to be PATIENT and GENTLE with small children, pets and old people?

6). Goodness – Funny how almost every single human on the planet would (in their own mind) define themselves as a “good person”. Because hey, no-one really likes admitting their own failures and shortcomings, am I right? It makes them feel so……..small……like such a “terrible” human being with flaws……..with………sin……….with…….oh my gosh….(gasp!) IMPERFECTIONS! However, the bible (and Jesus) define a good person by how well they RECEIVE the gospel AND apply it to their LIFE!

Have you ever been unkind to someone? Why? How? Did being unkind TO that someone help or hurt the situation? Did you feel guilty at all afterwards, on the inside? Why or why not? We must be “GOOD” (that means be KIND) to ALL people, according to the bible! It’s a part of “loving our neighbor as ourselves”. Noah was defined in the bible as a good man, a righteous man who always tried to OBEY the Lord. And no doubt OBEYING the Lord (on Noah’s part) very likely meant loving OTHER PEOPLE as he loved the Lord and HIMSELF!

7). **FAITH**Hebrews 11:6 says: “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 him”.

For those people who have actually SEEN Jesus during a Near-Death Experience, faith is nearly automatic! But for those who have NOT seen Jesus during an N.D.E., faith is a little more hard to come by, I know. How much faith in Jesus (if any) do you have? Why? If not alot, why is that? Do you think the universe came to be by mere accident? Do you think that colored illustrated books just produce, write, illustrate and publish themselves?

There is SO MUCH EVIDENCE for Jesus and his existence (outside of N.D.E.’s AND outside of Christian sources, even) that it’s not even funny! In the Old Testament, Saul is told that Jesus prefers FAITH over sacrifice! Also, it was Abraham’s FAITH that was accounted to him for all righteousness! If you don’t have faith or alot of faith, you can always PRAY TO HAVE FAITH! 😉

Your key always opens up the lock to your house/apt., your microwave always turns on when you hit the power button, the TV remote always turns off when you turn it off. Therefore, if you have faith in inanimate things, why don’t you have more faith in Jesus, the one true LIVING GOD? What steps can you take to increase your faith? The bible says that faith comes by hearing and that hearing comes by READING THE WORD (The Bible itself!) So what steps can you take to increase your reading of the bible daily?

8). Meekness – How submissive to Jesus and God’s Written Word (the bible) are you? Do you find yourself “questioning certain parts” or “disagreeing with others?” Do you find yourself “questioning God” or certain biblical characters on a continual basis? If so, why? And/or do you find yourself feeling “superior” to other Christians for all your biblical-based bible knowledge or principles? Why? How?

Do you occasionally find yourself questioning Jesus’s orders? (i.e. “But Jesus………this doesn’t make any sense to me! Why should I print an Op-Ed letter to you when that seems totally crazy to me? I don’t get it. Until I understand why, I’m not doing it!”) Are you “meek” (submissive and humble) towards Jesus, the bible and others? If not, why? What steps can you take to learn to be more meek and humble? Jesus says the meek and the humble SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH (i.e. New Jerusalem talked about in Revelation 21-22!)

9). Temperance – Do you have “modesty?” “Self-control?” If not, why? Whom or what are you addicted to? Why? How? How does this “addiction” play into the fact that the “fruit” of the Spirit REQUIRES us to have “self-control”? Can you see how said “addiction” is taking you AWAY from Jesus and the gospel of Salvation?

If the serving on the package says 1 cup, do you eat 5 cups serving instead? If so, why? The bible condemns drunkenness. Do you ever get drunk? If so, WHY? In my mind, this does NOT just apply to “addictions” like alcohol, drugs, sex, videogames, partying, food and the like. It also means WITH OUR WORDS! Are we able to “self-control” our WORDS? Are we able to “self-control” our ANGER and our ACTIONS?

How many times have you lost “self-control” over something or someone? Why? How? Do you see HOW and WHERE the LACK of “self-control” came from? What steps can you take to overcome said LACK of self-control? With time, prayer, patience and training, YOU can train yourself to have more “self-control” and “self-restraint”.

I hope this has helped someone today know how to apply the 9 FRUITFUL GIFTS of the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost to their lives! Thanks and have a great evening! 😉

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT: What Jesus WANTS For *Godly Relationships!*

For those who don’t yet know my testimony or my story, I’ll give a brief overview here:

I had met Jesus personally during a couple of near-death experiences (one at around 23 months of age and another at just 14 years old). And at age 19, I knew who Jesus was. I had a huge children’s illustrated bible at my disposal (shortly after near-death experience #1), as well as the “official” KJV version I took from a ski resort condo when I was 15.

But at age 19-20, I still had NO IDEA what a “Christian” even WAS, the full extent to WHAT Jesus had done for mankind on the cross, or about any of the “meanings” of the words (“grace”, “born again”, “salvation”, etc.) of what I was reading in the “official” version of the KJV bible I was reading. I was really struggling to understand what it all meant. Well, one day in the mail, I got a invitation to a play (put on by a church) called: “Heaven’s Gate and Hell’s Flames”.

At first, I didn’t want to go. I thought I’d feel like the odd one out compared to all the people who’d been going to church their whole lives! However, after some grappling with the Lord over it, (i.e. remember when Moses got nervous about being the spokesman of Israel?) I decided to bite the bullet and take a chance and go, anyways! Well, I’m glad I did! First of all, I guy I had gone to High-School with had played the part of one of the angels! So hey, atleast I knew SOMEONE there, right?

And after the play, they handed out some FREE literature (Specifically, a small, brand-new pocket-sized “God’s Word: New Testament & Psalms). They told me to read it, look over it and then call them if I had any questions about what I was reading. They also assigned to me something called a “prayer accountability partner”, even though I didn’t really know what that meant at the time. And even though I was grateful for the FREE play and FREE literature, I was still somewhat hesitant about “attending church”. I just felt OVERWHELMED!

So I didn’t end up becoming a member of that church. Instead, I thanked them for the free bible and begun to read that God’s Word translation from cover to cover at home, in my own free time. But what really got me were the very first introductory pages! They just explained things to me SO WELL! Plus they even put the most important things IN BOLD! I knew that Jesus had some wonderful things in store for me by having them give me that easy-to-understand version of the New Testament! It’s just exactly what I needed at that time!

And as I begin to read and pour over the pages, I FINALLY began to understand what all those “words” meant (i.e. “grace”, “born again”, “salvation”), about what Jesus did, about how we’re all sinners and about how ONLY Jesus can save us from our sins! And so once I felt I had a firm grasp and understanding on THAT God’s Word translation, I quickly decided I was then gonna read the “official” King James Version, cover to cover, no matter how long it took!

(Please keep in mind that I had NO job at this point, had broken up with my S.O. AND had gotten kicked out of college! I was living off of savings/credit cards at that point. So for 8 months straight, that’s how Jesus orchestrated that time in my life so that it was just me and Him at that time! And what a wonderful BLESSING that turned out to be! Jesus was giving me a break from EVERYTHING and EVERYONE so that I could PEACEFULLY learn more about HIM and HIS GOSPEL!)

I understood most of everything I had read and was “amazed” at all the “love stories” (Boaz and Ruth, Jacob and Rachel, Isaac and Rebekah) that I had read! And I was young and filled with promise! I thought: “Hey, if it could happen to these folks in the bible, it can happen to ME, too!” I had this idea or picture in my mind that I’d meet my spouse by the age of 25, have kids by 30, and have a house by 35! In fact, don’t we ALL have pre-conceived notions in our mind like that?

So even though I had the KNOWLEDGE of Jesus and his gospel by age 21, I didn’t quite yet have the FAITH in Jesus that’s required! And so, for many years afterwards, that LACK OF FAITH in Jesus (concerning my love-life and considering other areas of my life) did me some SERIOUS HARM!

In fact, I was “mad at Jesus” for not bringing me a spouse for such a long, long time! I’m ashamed to even type this across the page but my “thoughts” for a LONG time concerning my love-life were the following: Jesus, you bring EVERYONE ELSE a spouse but not ME! Why? What’s wrong with ME? What are you punishing ME for? What wrong have “I” done against thee? Why am “I” not so-called deserving of a spouse but yet, other people seemingly ARE? Those people don’t even worship you AT ALL and they got a spouse before me! Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Tell me WHY!!!!???” 

I ended up not only being angry and bitter for MANY YEARS towards a few people that had majorly hurt me in my life but I also later ended up in FOUR consecutive abusive relationships! (Note: I had gotten so tired of “waiting on God” at that particular point in my life that I decided to “take matters into my own hands”).

Though none of them were physically abusive (I atleast got lucky in THAT regard), they were all emotionally, psychologically, mentally and SPIRITUALLY ABUSIVE! They CUT AWAY at my self-esteem, made me doubt myself, somewhat made me doubt God/Jesus, tampered with my faith, got me feeling VERY hopeless and depressed and ALMOST completely RUINED ME as a Christian! 

I had SO MUCH HATE in my heart towards the individuals who hurt me. “How could they?” I thought: “Jesus, how could you ALLOW that to happen to me at the hands of these people? Don’t you care about me AT ALL, Jesus? I was in this bitter, bitter place of anger, hurt, resentment, restlessness and mental/emotional ANGUISH! I was TORMENTED by the angered hatred I felt for those those individuals!

Odd thing is, I didn’t even really WANT to hate those individuals but my PRIDE got in the way of that! Even when Jesus gently said to me in my spirit: Told ya so! You should’ve listened to me and done things MY way, instead of your OWN way”, I was STILL stubborn about it. “But you don’t understand, Lord! You don’t understand what it’s like to be ME!” And the Lord seemed to say to me in my spirit, in response: “I CREATED you! I know you better than you even know YOURSELF!” 

It wasn’t really until I was about 30 years old or so that Jesus began to “soften” my heart towards the individuals who had hurt me and I began to see how my hate and resentment was EATING AWAY AT ME ON THE INSIDE! The Holy Spirit even revealed to me that my “hate” was eating away at MY SOUL! Wow! What a powerful, convicting description!

Eventually, I surrendered all that hurt, anger, fear, resentment to Jesus. I prayed: “Jesus, I don’t WANT to hate or resent anymore, it’s already taken SO MUCH from me! I WANT to be able to FORGIVE, so please HELP ME to FORGIVE and MOVE ON, as I know I can’t do it alone……only WITH your divine help, Lord!

And ya know what? Jesus IS faithful and true! He DID help me to forgive them. He pointed out SEVERAL things to me. First of all, he informed me that the people who hurt me were themselves hurting on the inside. Secondly, they didn’t even fully consciously realize how much they had hurt me. Thirdly, Jesus wanted me to know that it wasn’t my fault and that their OWN healing would ALSO someday come about BY my forgiving them! Wow! Such powerful words of wisdom!

And AS I forgave them [Jesus had me starting out by writing “forgiveness letters” to each person who had hurt me – though I had never hand-delivered the letters to them personally], I felt SO MUCH BAGGAGE lift OFF of me and my SPIRIT! I felt FREE for the first time in a VERY long time! My SOUL felt FREE! I felt PEACE! I felt LOVE! I felt JOY! I felt CONTENTMENT!

I no longer had “heart palpitations” or “anxiety attacks!” It was like a HUGE ANCHOR had been LIFTED off of me! I no longer felt “weighed down” by anger and hate! In fact, I was the happiest I had ever been! In fact, people started to notice. The relationships with the people who had hurt me began to DRASTICALLY improve! It was nothing short of a MIRACLE! (This was when I was around age 34 or so, I believe?)

However, even at 34, there was still alot of “spiritual work” to be done! Because at THAT point in my life, I STILL had no idea about the TRUTH about church history, the Judeo roots of Christianity, etc. I would learn all of that later (like, age 36 or so). It’s funny how the Lord reveals things to me in “stages”. Sometimes, I wish he’d reveal things to me all at once, but that’s a different post for a different day! 😉 Jesus has also (in the last several months) helped me to soften my heart towards HIMSELF, concerning certain things in my life! 

Okay, now fast forward to today. Even though I’ve been a Christian for about 20 years now, I’ve only most recently learned what Jesus expects for a GODLY RELATIONSHIP (be it a relationship, a friendship, a marriage, etc.) And what I learned in the series just BLEW ME AWAY! Wow! How had I not ever seen this before? And then I got to thinking. How many OTHERS out there have not seen this before? Probably SEVERAL

I’ve most recently viewed an 8-part series and a powerful one-hour+ sermon on the matter. And ALL of them were eye-opening! And ALL of them ask the same questions: “Am I seeking a spouse with the RIGHT spiritual mind, heart and attitude before God? If not, why? If so, is it GOD’S time for me to have a spouse yet? If not, am I willing to wait on God instead of giving in to my own selfish desires? And if already married, am I bringing Christ INTO the marriage?” 

I will embed all the videos down below. [NOTE: PLEASE GET OUT A PEN AND PAPER AND TAKE LOTS OF NOTES!!!!!] I pray and hope that these will help you and enlighten you as much as they helped and enlightened ME! 😉 The first video is entitled “5 Keys To Identifying Your SoulMate” by Toure Roberts in L.A. and the next SEVERAL videos are the 8-PART series by Michael Todd from Transformation Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

When You Feel Like Jesus “Doesn’t Love You”, Etc.

Note: I’ve previously written a similar post on the subject which can be found at: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/12/28/when-you-feel-like-giving-up-how-to-deal/

Lets face it, even the most “righteous” of Christian can sometimes feel like Jesus is “mad at them”, like he secretly “hates them”, like he is “utterly disappointed beyond compare” with them, and/or like he has technically “given up on them” etc.

And if most of us were completely & utterly HONEST, we’ve ALL felt that way atleast at SOME point in our lives or another, am I right? Some have felt that way for days, some for months and yet others for YEARS, even. But let me ask you THIS: Just WHOM or WHAT is BEHIND those “feelings?” Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY doesn’t come from Jesus & the heavenly angels!

ALL humans (biological males and biological females) were made in the image of God! And together, the biological male and biological female were modeled on two things and two things, ONLY: traditional marriage AND natural procreation!

And Satan, (as well as demons) as we all know, HATES the true image of God! In fact, that’s the very reason WHY there’s all of this “transgender”, “no gender”, “abortion”, “gay marriage”, “gay adoption”, and “sex change” stuff today,  that’s now even going into OVER-DRIVE! Because Satan is working OVER-TIME to try to DESTROY the image of God!!!!!!!!!!!

The bible says that Satan is here upon this Earth to KILL, STEAL, AND DESTROY! Well, “abortion” does all 3 things in ONE! Not to mention that homosexuals and “transgenders” have a MUCH HIGHER suicide rate than the national average! Therefore, Satan is DEFINITELY “killing and destroying” as much of the true/biological image of God that he possibly can! (And much more ferociously as the years go by, even! If an 11-year old drag queen dancing in a gay bar doesn’t attest to that very fact alone, that I don’t know what does!)

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is God’s “authenticated signature” on his creation. So when you got things and people (namely Satan) trying to UNDO that, you’ve got someone who’s desperately trying to THWART the true image of God and God’s “authenticated signature” upon his ENTIRE CREATION!

Therefore, if Satan is THAT willing to try to THWART God’s authenticated signature upon God’s own creation, what makes anyone think that Satan will stop THERE? Satan (and even demons) KNOW that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation! They simply KNOW it, there’s NO denying it or getting around it for them! Therefore, Satan reasons within himself, that if he CAN’T destroy Salvation in Jesus Christ for Mankind (in and of itself), his NEXT move is to try to RUIN OUR FAITH IN JESUS!

For if he can get us to QUESTION Jesus or to falsely make us think that Jesus has so-called “abandoned us” then maybe, just maybe (Satan reasons) he can STEAL US AWAY FROM JESUS FOR ***ALL ETERNITY!*** That’s quite a sobering thought, isn’t it, folks? And trust me, that sort of thought process doesn’t happen overnight! It’s a gradual build. It starts out so small, then eventually morphs into something much bigger.

Satan knows he oftentimes can’t get us to question our “faith” in Jesus, DIRECTLY. So he takes a more subtle, long, drawn out approach. He’ll oftentimes try to manipulate our “emotions” to try to get us to “stray” from the gospel (say, a “gay” friend or family member who “whines” that people “can’t help it” if they’re “gay” or the like). Or he’ll bring up past sins we’ve committed that we’re still grappling with (“remember when YOU did such n’ such?”)

Or a 3rd approach he’ll often try is to get us to compromise “just a little bit”, in the hopes that that small “compromise” to sin will soon lead to BIGGER COMPROMISES to sin (and it oftentimes DOES!) For example, you were given back 1 penny too much in change, so Satan tempts you with: “Oh come on, it’s a super hot summer day, do you REALLY want to have to go all the way back into the store, having to walk once again through the SCORCHING HEAT, just to return that ONE measly penny?”

And then, over time, “small sins” will eventually lead to “bigger sins” and once the “bigger sins” start happening, that’s when things start to spiritually spiral out of control! And it’s then and only then that Satan will oftentimes begin the “question Jesus altogether” plan! The following arguments are those often employed by Satan to try to eternally separate us from Christ:

  • “Are you SURE you’re good enough for salvation in Christ?”
  • “Christ isn’t looking to save the SUPER SINNERS like YOU!”
  • “You’re too bad, you’re too sinful, Jesus has ALREADY given up on you, my friend, hate to break it to you”
  • “What? You don’t believe that gay people should have equal rights? What a terrible, terrible person you are! How bigoted! How hateful!”
  • “Ah, so you haven’t heard from Jesus in awhile, eh? That’s because he hates you and has abandoned you!”
  • “It’ll ONLY be a matter of time before I conquer you! You’re so far from Christ that it’s not even funny!”
  • “Just where is your Jesus, now? I don’t see him anywhere around here, do YOU?”
  • ‘Jesus has given up on you! He WANTS you to suffer! He WANTS you to feel miserable and alone!”
  • “Jesus is highly disappointed in you right now! Look at all the FAILURES you’ve had in your spiritual life, lately!”
  • “You’re hardly making ANY difference in people’s lives! Nobody’s interested in hearing the gospel! You should just quit while you’re still ahead!”
  • “You’re a total JOKE! Even the demons think so!”
  • “You’ve committed SO many sins lately, you might as well join the dark side! Ha!”
  • ETC.

And when all of THAT fails, Satan gots more tricks up his “arsenal”, still! If he can’t get us to ABANDON or QUESTION our faith in Christ, or to commit major sins against Christ, he’ll instead try to work on FEAR! 

  1. “Am I really good enough to enter the New Millennial Kingdom someday?”
  2. “Will Jesus someday say to me, ‘Depart from me, I never knew you?'”
  3. “Is what I’m doing here down on this Earth good enough for Jesus?” 
  4. “What if x, y, z person doesn’t listen to me when I preach the gospel of Jesus to them? What is the point?”
  5. “Why DOES Jesus allow so much suffering in my life for? Does he care about me AT ALL?” 
  6. HAS Jesus given up on me down here on this Earth?”
  7. IS Jesus ever returning to the Earth? He certainly seems to be taking his sweet little time! Maybe he’s “changed his mind” about coming to the Earth a 2nd time!”
  8. “Maybe Jesus HAS abandoned me and there’s no hope left for me upon this Earth!” 

Romans 10:17 says: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”.

So let us now run through a spiritual “checklist”, if you will, in order to get to the bottom of WHY you feel like Jesus has “abandoned you” or “doesn’t love you anymore”:

  1. When’s the last time you read the bible? (King James version?) Has it been awhile? If so, WHY? And can you see how NOT reading the bible in a really long time has fully aided Satan’s full-thronged spiritual attack(s) AGAINST YOU? 
  2. Have you knowingly (or perhaps unknowingly) brought any “demonic objects” into your heart, home, car, soul or mind? If so, what are these objects and do you now see how these objects have invited “demonic spirits” (such as lethargy, doubt, anger, envy, depression, etc.) into your life, heart, mind, body, soul and HOME?
  3. WHERE do you think the feelings of “Jesus not loving me” are coming from? Do you think Jesus HIMSELF or his righteous holy angels are behind those feelings? And if they’re NOT behind those ungodly feelings, then who IS?
  4. In what ways has Satan “spiritually attacked” you, lately? Do you not realize that feeling that Jesus doesn’t love you IS a mode of Satan’s attack AGAINST YOU, in and of ITSELF? 
  5. If Jesus Christ doesn’t love you, then WHY did he die for YOUR sins (and all of mankind’s sins) on the cross? 
  6. If Jesus Christ doesn’t love you, then WHY did he send you here to THIS very blog post on the internet to reassure you of his love and to warn you of the TOTAL DEPTHS of Satan’s spiritual attacks UPON YOU? 
  7. If Jesus Christ doesn’t love you and if he’s TRULY given up on you the way that Satan “claims”, then why is Satan TRYING SO VERY HARD to get you to abandon your faith in Christ, altogether? Because obviously, Jesus has NOT given up on you in any way, shape or form, which is WHY Satan is fighting so desperately to try to eternally conquer your soul! Think about it, folks! 
  8. Do you realize that you’re not the ONLY one who’s going through these spiritual struggles right now and that MANY have either already gone through them or are now currently going through them? YOU’RE NOT ALONE

Here are SEVEN inspiring verses that I’d like to share with you all, concerning Jesus’s LOVE FOR US:

 

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”

Ephesians 2: 4-7But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus”

1 John 3:1 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not”

1 John 4: 9-11In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another

Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me”

Romans 5:25By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us

Romans 8:37-39Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”

STILL not sure if Jesus loves you or not? The fact in and of itself that you’re even ASKING the question TO BEGIN WITH proves that he loves you! HOW? The fact you even SPEAK his name, in and of itself, and the fact that you even BELIEVE upon his name PROVES that he loves you! For think about it, if Jesus didn’t love you (and I assure you, he DOES), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that he WOULDN’T want his name to be KNOWN to you? Think about it! If Jesus Christ did NOT love the world (as per John 3:16), then A) He NEVER would’ve died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins in the first place and B) He would NOT want his name to be KNOWN throughout the world! 

But even still, if you STILL don’t feel like Jesus loves you, then I will say a precious prayer for you, dear friend:

Jesus, there’s some unfortunate souls out there today who do NOT feel loved by you for whatever reason – most of those reasons being their own self-doubts brought about by Satan and demons! Please break Satan’s power over their lives! Please help them GET RID OF any demonic objects in their hearts, minds, cars or homes! Please help them to realize that they’re in a SPIRITUAL BATTLE for their VERY SOULS! Please show them the GREAT LOVE you have for them! Please show them the TOTAL DEPTHS that Satan WILL go to, in order to try to deceive them! Please liberate them from Satan’s grasp! Please give them a newfound hope & a future in YOU, O Lord! Please shine your heavenly grace upon them and give them a newfound faith and hope  that can ONLY be found in YOU and YOU, alone! Please give them a newfound faith in you that’s SO STRONG, that NOTHING can break it! NOTHING and NO-ONE! Prepare them for spiritual persecution and spiritual battle, for they will NEED it in these Last Days! Please bless them & keep them for all eternity! Amen“. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLASPHEMOUS Amazon Documentary Paints Jesus As Nothing More Than “GREEK Philosopher”

An Amazon Prime documentary has made claim that Jesus Christ was not a Jew from Nazareth, but rather a Greek philosopher named Apollonius, born in the Anatolia region of Turkey.

The above false, biblical theory about Jesus is being put out by the group known as “Bible Conspiracies”, who also claim such unbiblical whoppers as “an alien race known as the Annunaki destroyed the tower of Babel” and also that “Sodom & Gomorrah were actually taken out by a nuclear explosion!”

Not withstanding, it only got a 2 STAR RATING, with many viewers on Amazon voicing their displeasure with the highly blasphemous film:

“The writers of this film not only have NO actual Biblical knowledge, they quote many myths that have been not only been disproved, but are laughed at in theological circles. In this video, there are no experts, no theologians, only many rhetorical lies that are often spewed by evolutionists and atheists.”

Yet another viewer said the following:

“Does not live up to its name – doesn’t reveal any Bible ‘conspiracies’ only tries to cast doubt on the Bible with no historical evidence or interviews with trustworthy experts, just pure conjecture.”

[[Source: https://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/jesus-is-actually-a-greek-philosopher-new-amazon-documentary-theorizes.html]]

Apollonius of Perga was BORN 262BC in Perga, Turkey and DIED around 190BC in Alexandria, Egypt. So already right there, we can KNOW beyond 100% fact that Apollonius didn’t even LIVE around the same time as Jesus/Yeshua!!!!! (Although if ya want to claim that he invented mathemtical “conic sections”, you might possibly be on to something there, but I digress…..)

Sadly, this “blasphemous documentary” on Jesus is just one of MANY! Several of these “bible conspiracy” documentaries try to shed light on HOW God/Jesus did the things He did……such as HOW He performed his divine miracles and their “secular reasoning” is WAY, WAY OFF!

There’s also false claims (in general) from “skeptics” about HOW Jesus was able to walk on the sea or make wine from water, etc. And UNLESS a person has KNOWLEDGE of the bible, they’re gonna fall victim to many of these false and blasphemous “documentaries”. And these “documentaries” ALL have ONE goal in common: to BLASPHEME JESUS/YESHUA……..either by saying he “never existed” or that the “Jesus of the bible is NOT the actual Jesus”, etc.

Now, I don’t write about this false, blasphemous Amazon Prime documentary to deceive or confuse you but rather to INFORM you about the works of the enemy! Now…..true, most of you will probably be smart enough to see past the Devil’s lies on that one! But an “unsaved person” probably would NOT be able to tell the difference between the biblical Jesus and the false “Jesus” that this documentary promotes! Therefore, I pray that ALL who read this post will simply KNOW that the Amazon prime documentary claiming that Jesus was actually a Greek philosopher is FALSE, FALSE, FALSE!

And P.S.: After this “false documentary” coming to light, I’m now thinking on rather or not I should boycott or severely limit my Amazon usage from now on. For by LETTING this blasphemous documentary on Jesus come to Amazon Prime TO BEGIN WITH, Amazon has now made it abundantly clear to me that they do NOT represent the TRUE, JEWISH, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible in any way, shape or form! Nor do they any longer truly represent ME, a born-again Christian customer!

So perhaps from now on, I should just start using Barnes & Noble or think of another alternative UNTIL Amazon REMOVES that blasphemous “false Jesus” documentary. And then, once and if they DO, I will once again resume shopping at Amazon since I admit that I love shopping there. But seriously. What’s the point of my shopping there on Amazon anymore if they no longer want to truly represent me as a born-again Christian customer? Am I over-reacting? Taking it a bit too far, perhaps?

I don’t think so. Because after having met Jesus personally during an N.D.E., I do NOT take any “blasphemous” things about him too lightly! It feels like a personal punch in the gut to me whenever somebody and/or some “corporation” is trying to say false or bad things about Jesus and so I can’t stand that!

Lets face it folks, it would really be no different than if some random stranger (a business owner) came up to you and boldly declared a bald-faced lie about one of your loved ones. If you just KNEW that what they were saying about your loved one was BLATANTLY FALSE and had NO MERIT whatsoever, you’d be pretty put off, too! (I’m actually not sure if I’m more hurt or ANGRY whenever I see someone or something blaspheming Jesus, the one and only true Messiah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

However, sometimes I DO believe that Jesus ALLOWS us to experience OTHERS blaspheming him in OUR presense in order to remind US of who HE is! Let me explain. I saw Jesus during an N.D.E., therefore, I KNOW beyond 100% FACT that he’s the one and only true Messiah! However, sometimes I believe he allows us to come across knowledge of things such as the “blasphemous documentary about him” on Amazon, etc., in order to RE-AFFIRM who he is!

In other words, by ALLOWING that false documentary about him on Amazon, he’s letting us know that he WASN’T a “Greek philosopher”. If that makes any sense? Plus I also think he allows such things in order to test the HEARTS of people. Let me elaborate. Okay, so lets say average Joe Schmoe or Sally Jane sees the documentary claiming Jesus was nothing more than a Greek philosopher.

Perhaps Jesus then wants to test the HEARTS of “Joe Schmoe” and/or “Sally Jane” in order to see if “Joe” and/or “Sally” just take the documentary’s word for it……OR if “Joe” and/or “Sally” decide to look into it a bit more and do the actual research for themselves as in, “Is THAT true? Is that REALLY what happened? What is the EVIDENCE for THAT claim?”

But yet, here’s the clincher: Even if “Joe” or “Sally” DO just take the documentary’s word for it (and soon publicly declare the documentary’s “theory” among family, friends, coworkers and strangers), they’ll soon likely come across someone (rather Christian or not) that tells them: “Actually, there’s NO historical basis for the documentary’s claims…..the Greek philosopher lived long before Jesus was supposedly born, so….?”

And THAT will then get the “Joe” and “Sally” people searching on a DIFFERENT quest of sorts: “Wait, WHAT? What do you MEAN it’s not true? How IS the evidence lacking?” They will then be FORCED to look into the LACK of evidence from the documentary and come to realize that the makers of the documentary were just out to mock God and make a cheap buck. And then ofcourse, that will send them on another “quest for truth”, altogether……perhaps a quest for JESUS’S TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH, even (which could never be a BAD thing……)

But that reasoning aside, I DO think that Jesus tests our knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time in order to keep us on our spiritual toes. I call it “spiritual discernment training”. Because lets face it, if Jesus doesn’t fine-tune our spiritual knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time, we will become suspectible to spiritual deception and Jesus and the Holy Spirit don’t want that, which is WHY we oftentimes come across blasphemous things about Jesus that make us stop, take a step back, and say to ourselves: “Wait a minute…..THAT can’t be true…….it contradicts the bible here, here and here…..that’s BLASPHEMY!”

And when we get to the point where we ARE able to recognize something as “blasphemous” or “biblically false”, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are never more proud of us! It’s like they’re saying in unison, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – [John 10:27-28]

However, the people that willingly BELIEVE the “blasphemy?” Especially in the current End Times in which we’re now living in? Jesus has THIS to say:

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” – 2 Timothy 3:4

Can we say OUCH? But to put it in a deeper context, I want to quote another bible passage that I think reiterates the point:

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12]

So in other words, in the FIRST passage up above (in 2 Timothy 3:4), people are believing what they “think” or what they “feel” should be biblically true (i.e. “I believe that ALL people should go to heaven unless they were like, Hitler or something”). And BECAUSE of the total “hardness” of their hearts, and their “stubborness” IN believing in what THEY “think” or “feel” should be the gospel truth, instead of the ACTUAL gospel truth, Jesus then in turn ALLOWS them to believe and feel whatever they want (EVEN IF what they “believe” and “feel” should be the gospel truth isn’t the true gospel truth AT ALL!)

And through the time and over the years, Jesus tries INNUMERABLE ways to try to “chip away” at their stubborn, cold hearts. But IF they don’t repent (and then later go on to to take the Mark of the Beast – thus believing in the “strong delusion” of the Antichrist’s lies – and lets face it, Mark of the Beast is the ULTIMATE STRONG DELUSION OF DELUSIONS), Jesus has NO CHOICE but to DAMN THAT PERSON’S SOUL FOR ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! OUCH! ;-(

There’s many mockers and scoffers out there in these last days, making “mockumentaries galore” (rather it’s movies, tv shows, magazine covers, album covers, social media posts, newspaper articles, books, SNL – Saturday Night Live, or whatever have you). And my oh my how I just PRAY for all those lost souls. For they just have NO IDEA what all they’re up against if they die without the saving grace of Jesus Christ! Many think that “hell won’t be that bad”.

Well, the fires of hell aren’t even eternal. Why? Because they’re gonna be MERGED WITH the fire in the LAKE OF FIRE! And the fires of hell are 10,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter (I know……because an angel told me during a near-suicide experience several years ago…….And I was even somewhat skeptical of the angel’s words, until I did the “research” for myself by reading the Revelation passages where it’s mentioned the fires of hell will merge with the lake of fire). And the lake of fire is 100,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell and 1,000,000,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter! So YOU do the math, folks!

Some think: “Hey! No problem! People’ll just burn till they’re consumed, then they’ll cease to exist”. Well, I post THIS in response to their “false, lukewarm assumptions”:

“And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” – [Revelation 14:11]

“Oh but certainly that couldn’t be mean FOREVER & EVER”, some panicked atheist or lukewarm Christian often says. But that’s NOT what the bible says, my friends! It says FOREVER and EVER! For ETERNITY! It also says they have NO REST day or night! Translation? They WILL be tormented for eternity! Why? Because they CHOSE to be tormented for eternity by REJECTING Jesus’s sacrifice for them (and for all of mankind) on the cross of Calvary!

“Oh but certainly a LOVING GOD wouldn’t DO such a thing”, some panicked person somewhere still argues in their heart, in response. Think of it THIS way: If a parent sends off their hateful, cold-hearted, ungrateful, spiteful, vengeful, angry child off to “boot camp” or “military school” to try to straighten them out and they come back even WORSE than before or just AS worse as they were before they went there, then the parent SADLY has no choice but to PERMANETLY DISOWN their child!

But imagine this slightly differently: Imagine the loving parent warning the child: “If you come back from military school just as bad or worse than before, and don’t repent of your hateful behavior towards me, then I will have no choice but to eternally disown you and throw you into an eternal burning heap of torment“, and the child then CHOOSES to not repent after that time of “boot camp” or “military school”, then the parent, sadly, has NO CHOICE but to follow through with their ultimatum.

Why? Because they KNOW, they just simply KNOW, that if they let their hateful, spiteful, UNREPETANT kid back into their house again, that the kid will just hate them 10 TIMES MORE than before! And not only THAT but they ALSO chose ANOTHER “parental figure”, one who LIES to them and only wants to DESTROY THEM! You, as the loving parent, and through all your OBEDIENT children, try so desperately to tell your “wayward child” THE TRUTH about THE ENEMY, but they just simply won’t listen…..

THE ENEMY is now their “god” and YOU, the loving parent, are now spiritually left in the dust in their life! And so NOW, when this “wayward child” demands to come home but hurts you again and again and again, you have NO CHOICE but to follow up with your ultimatem………..and leave THEM in the dust, eternally perishing in fire………which is sadly what your “wayward child” had secretly wanted all along by NOT listening to you, the loving parent!

So it is with God! He is like the “loving parent” and “creator” that desperately loves us and wants us to love him back and obey him! But IF we choose NOT to obey him and NOT to accept his eternal gift of Salvation through Jesus, then he has NO CHOICE but to throw us into the lake of fire for all eternity! And he takes NO PLEASURE in that! Absolutely NONE!

In fact, 2 Peter 3:9 states: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

Translation? Jesus does not want anyone to “perish”. But IF a person chooses (by their own actions) to REJECT CHRIST and his commandments, then Jesus has no choice but to ALLOW that unfortunate soul to “perish”. Jesus can’t undo what he SAYS he will do, cause otherwise, he wouldn’t be God! Think about it, folks! 

Plus John 3:16 boldly declares: “For God [The Heavenly Father] so loved the world [mankind], that he [The Heavenly Father] gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] shall not perish [go to the lake of fire for eternity] but have eternal life” [Eternal Life with Jesus Christ in “Paradise”] 

The New York RHA Abortion Law: Democratic Liberals Now “Redefining” What’s *HUMAN*

On November 1, 2014, Britney Maynard (surrounded by friends and family) took her own life in Oregon. In fact, her whole entire family had moved there to Oregon just to accommodate her “right to die”. The progressive euthanasia proponents “used” her as the poster girl for euthanasia much the way that the progressive proponents of abortion used Norma J. McCorvey [“the Roe girl” in Roe Vs. Wade] to get what they wanted. (Which, by the way, Norma later became a born-again Christian and REGRETTED the Roe Vs. Wade decision and tried to undo it! She became a STAUNCH Pro-Life advocate!) 

But yet, here’s what’s so strange about the Britney Maynard case. It appears that she automatically accepted the doctor’s diagnosis right away and didn’t even bother seeking a 2nd or 3rd opinion. That right there strikes me as odd. She was so YOUNG! And beautiful! Why give up so SOON? Also as well: Britney herself campaigned for what she called “death with dignity”. What a strange word for “suicide”; dignity. (I’m sure many families of those who committed suicide would call their loved one’s suicide ANYTHING but *dignified*!)

I believe the progressive euthanasia lobby took advantage of Ms. Maynard’s emotional vulernability & PUSHED her into Euthanasia and PUSHED her to think that suicide was somehow “dignified”. For I DON’T truly believe that Ms. Maynard come to this conclusion on her own!  

Another interesting faucet is that a marine by the name of JJ Hanson was ALSO diagnosed with the same exact cancer that Britney Maynard had. But rather than give up, JJ Hanson decided to FIGHT IT (by seeking out a 2nd and 3rd opinion) and now he’s in REMISSION, folks! And he’s really offended by the fact that terminal patients who decide to FIGHT their cancer and get 2nd or 3rd opinions are somehow seen by the euthanasia lobby as “less dignified” and “not worthy of life”.

But going back to the Britney Maynard case. They put her on this medication that made her gain lots of weight. That no doubt further played a role in her depression over her “illness”. Plus I also found it strange that Britney was so “gung ho” for “assisted suicide” and advocated for it ALL ACROSS THE U.S.! But yet, I HAVE to ask this question (sorry folks, I just have to): WAS Britney Maynard BRAINWASHED by the euthanasia lobby? I believe she was

And over the years, the “arguments” for both things (euthanasia and abortion) have been “muddled”. Most people on a basic human level KNOW that these two things are inherently WRONG! But yet……for some reason……the progs keep trying to use their “reasoning skills” on us conservatives in order to get us to “cave in” to them: “Yeah well, what if a person has a terminal illness?” and/or “What if a woman’s raped or the woman’s life is in danger?”

And sadly, throughout the years, we conservatives (as a collective whole) HAVE caved in to the progressives (as a whole) and so now, we, as a world, as a society and as a nation, have got innocent blood on our hands! WE, as a NATION, will no doubtedly be held RESPONSIBLE for the senseless killing of fellow “innocent” human beings! But yet, that brings me to my next case in point: the progs are now officially (and legally) “redefining” what it even MEANS to be *human!* (Can you BELIEVE IT!!???) They keep taking the “goal posts” and dragging them further and further down the field of abominations!

The pro-abortion progressives are NOW saying that a baby is NOT fully human UNTIL it is born! But here’s the thing: late-term abortion works pretty much the same way that partial-birth abortion works: They poison the baby within the womb, the baby is IN AGONY within the womb for a couple of days as the baby is slowly dying inside the womb and then, in BOTH cases, THE MOTHER DELIVERS A *DEAD BABY!* There’s NO sugar-coating it, NO getting around it! The mother HAS to give birth to the baby EITHER way! SO WHY KILL IT???? Makes no logical sense, does it?

Also as well: if they have to try to kill the baby THAT LATE into the pregnancy (up until the 9th month) to “preserve the mother’s life”, then there’s PLENTY of ways to save both the mother AND the baby’s life WITHOUT killing the baby (ever heard of a C-section, anyone?) And just like the Progs were LYING about the “conveniences” of Euthanasia (believe me, there ARE none), they are also now LYING to the American and global public about the “conveniences” of late-term abortion!

Basically, what it all boils down to is THIS: Abortion is about a deadbeat father’s “right” to abandon his child and/or the mother of his child, about a woman’s “right” to place her sexuality above her unborn child and about an ungodly doctor’s right to make lots of $$$$$$$ off a DEAD-TORN APART TO PIECESBABY! And believe me, there’s nothing too “convenient” about ANY of THAT! Cause lets face it, abortion does NOT make a woman “unpregnant”: it just makes her the mother of a DEAD BABY!

Abortion proponents claim that abortion ENLIGHTENS women! But ya want to know what, folks? It actually manages to DISENFRANCHISE them, much the same way that the “Sexual Revolution” did! Because NOW, as a whole, men typically don’t WANT to marry women anymore, in general! Young men today would rather “shag it, then abandon it” instead! In fact, most young men today DON’T EVEN WANT TO BE in relationships anymore – let alone “commit” to a woman or get married to her! (I even sometimes wonder if some of the young men of today get married because they feel like they have to – rather than purely wanting to (as a whole) – but maybe that’s just me?)

But going back to the story. On the 46th anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade, (January 22, 2019), New York governor Andrew Cuomo has now signed a bill into law, called The Reproductive Health Act (and what SHOULD be called the Re-enacting Hitler Act – since Hitler – just like Margaret Sanger- was ALL ABOUT *eugenics*) or RHA for short. And what this bill essentially does is give women the “right” to kill off their baby during ANY point in pregnancy – EVEN until RIGHT BEFORE BIRTH!

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/sean-hannity-radical-new-extreme-democratic-socialist-party-trying-to-legal

But folks, it gets WORSE – much, much worse! Right after the bill was signed into law, there was TONS OF PEOPLE **CHEERING** and celebrating IT, as if it were the Super Bowl or something! And not only that, but Cuomo directed the VERY TOP of the World Trade Center to be lit PINK, afterwards! (FOLKS, THIS IS BARBARIC!!!!)

The PPNYC (Planned Parenthood New York City) Action Fund even posted a 7 second video on Twitter of a “standing ovation” on the New York Senate chamber floor after Cuomo signed the bill! (FOLKS, THAT’S HORRIFYING!!!!!!!!!!)

standingovationonnewyorksenatefloor

 

The “faucets” of the late-term abortion bill:

  • Allows for a woman to get an abortion at ANY point in her pregnancy, even until RIGHT BEFORE BIRTH (i.e. during CONTRACTIONS)
  • It REMOVES abortion from the PENAL (LEGAL) CODE of New York/becomes uncriminal (Remember Kermit Gosnell, anyone?)
  • It PLACES abortion INTO the state of New York’s constitution as an “unalienable right”
  • It declares that a baby IS **NOT HUMAN** UNTIL after it’s born!
  • It kills off the baby in the womb and then forces the mother to deliver A DEAD BABY! (Note: A baby can feel “pain” as early as 8 weeks or earlier, and during late-term abortions, a baby is in agony for TWO DAYS before being “extracted” from the womb! HORRIFYING!)
  • It gives the right for a NON-DOCTOR to PERFORM the late-term abortion! (So much for PREVENTING “back alley abortions”, eh?)
  • It gives the father of the baby ZERO RIGHTS to preserve their baby’s life!
  • If a baby is BORN ALIVE during an abortion, New York medical practitioners are NOT required by law to SAVE THE BABY! In other words, they can LEGALLY MURDER THE BABY OR LEAVE IT TO DIE!
  • It declares that a baby is NOT a baby UNTIL it is born!
  • ETC.

But if you were still wondering what it IS that they’re supporting, it’s the following….In other words, THIS is what their STANDING OVATION on the New York Senate floor was for:

abortedlatetermbaby abortedbaby8

aborted10

aborted12

But folks, it still doesn’t even end THERE, it goes much, much further! OTHER STATES now want to EMULATE THE NEW YORK LAW! Late-term abortion bills have now been introduced in Virginia, Rhode Island, & Massachusetts (just to name a few). SEVEN U.S. States (including Washington D.C.) ALREADY have late-term abortion bills on the books: Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont! Just like “gay marriage”, late-term abortion is SPREADING LIKE CONTAGIOUS SPIRITUAL CANCER! A CANCER OF THE MOST DEADLY SPIRITUAL KIND! 

But in fact, KILLING CHILDREN has been their goal ALL ALONG: it has been their long-term END GAME. But they knew they had to play this “game” SLOWLY…..over time…..over MANY YEARS……and through many “court cases”, etc. But NOW….in the year 2019, their “game” has now reached its hellish climax!

But let me take this EVEN one step further. Their ULTIMATE END GOAL is euthanasia for ALL those they deen unfit (including the elderly). In other words, they eventually want to kill off EVERYONE that doesn’t “agree” with them and/or people that they deem “unworthy of life”. And folks, WITHIN the grouping includes BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIANS!

Why? Because Christians do NOT agree with “The Hive Mind Liberal Narrative” and so that makes them “spiritual and political liabilities”. In fact, Revelation 13:15 [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 15] goes into VERY GREAT DETAIL about just what happens to ALL those (specifically, born-again Christians/Messianic Jews) whom REFUSE to go along with The Antichrist’s “New Global Economy”. But more on that, later…….

But again, it’s all about THE FAMILY! The TRADITIONAL FAMILY! EVERY SINGLE LEFTIST MOVEMENT attacks the TRADITIONAL FAMILY and TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE, made in the image of God!

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them

“Gay marriage” attacks the traditional family. The “gay/trans movement” attacks the traditional family. “Abortion” attacks the traditional family. “The Women’s Movement” and “The Sexual Revolution” ALSO attacks the traditional family. But at its VERY core, the attack on the traditional family and traditional marriage is actually an ATTACK on the God-created WOMAN! In other words, tearing away the traditional family and traditional marriage actually TEARS away at THE WOMAN! In other words, all these leftists movements do is DISENFRANCHISE women!

So many liberals falsely claim that God “hates women”. But if you peel back all the layers of the spiritual onion, you will see that God LOVES women and treasures them and VALUES them! That’s WHY he created traditional families and traditional marriages! He did that to FRANCHISE women and made them TREASURED AND VALUED! But all the left wants to do is DISENFRANCHISE women (and children!)

Many young men today won’t commit to a relationship or a marriage. Women (as a whole – especially many young millennial women) are seen by most millennial men as “whores” and are oftentimes abandoned by them (the old “bait and switch” tactic). Women today (as a whole) are “lost”, spiritually, mentally and emotionally (as well as most of the men out there today). We have LOST our way, as a country and as a nation! For we now live in a nation where soon, NOBODY will have “rights” and I do mean NOBODY!

Yet, that’s what it all coming down to, folks. If babies don’t have any rights to life in the womb, then who DOES have rights? And what’s next? FORCED ABORTIONS? (Perhaps it’ll only be forced abortions for Conservatives but still). Folks, they want to very likely eventually make us like countries that have FORCED ABORTIONS! (You think I’m kidding there but I’m really, truly NOT!)

A big part of why the liberals are doing this is ofcourse to rub it in the face of ALL conservatives EVERYWHERE across the world (and not just here in America). But even the most NON-religious out there would somehow HAVE to ask themselves this fateful question: what are they (the liberals) hoping to actually GAIN from this? What type of a world are they really, truly WANTING? And what’s the driving force BEHIND their quest for power against the conservatives – very specifically Christians?

I’ll tell ya what it is: It’s the DEMONIC SPIRITS living INSIDE their hearts, souls and minds that absolutely can not STAND Jesus Christ, the gospel or ANYTHING of American patriotism and/or conservative/biblical values! Why? Because American patriotism and the Christian gospel of Jesus Christ are SO closely entwined together! The nation of America was FOUNDED UPON JESUS CHRIST AND HIS GOSPEL! In fact, THE BIBLE used to be THE ONLY school curriculum back in the late 1800’s and earlier! Did you know that, folks? It wasn’t until “Darwin” and the Evolutionists came along that things started to change!

I’ve been saying for a really long time now that THIS (the type of stuff that we’re all seeing today) is all part of the “EPHESIANS 6:12/ISAIAH 5:20 WAR!” And folks……it’s ONLY gonna get worse! And one of the MANY reasons why this is, is because there’s practically NO major push-back from Christians/Conservatives ON these issues! As a matter of fact, JUST LOOK at how many Christian “churches” support abortion, gay “adoption”, gay “marriage”, and “gay/trans rights” these days! Too many to name! And the non-believing liberals are looking at us Christians (as a whole) and LAUGHING at us:

Well, well, if the holy God of the bible accepts homosexuality and abortion, then I guess he’s not really much of a “God” afterall and I don’t need to change my ways! For EVERYONE will go to heaven, unless they were, like, Hitler or something!

Folks, that’s the THINKING of many non-believing liberals these days! In fact, Lady Gaga just came out and said this several days ago:

Their “end goal” towards Jesus Christ, the bible, the TRUE, natural biological SIGNATURE of God, as well as ALL born-AGAIN Christians is to DESTROY, DESTROY, DESTROY and MOCK, MOCK, MOCK!

Many Christians these days (as a whole) do a TINY bit of defense FOR Christ/the bible/biblical principles (which is good – don’t me wrong, here) but there’s practically NO OFFENSE! In other words, there’s practically (as a whole) NO MAJOR PUSH-BACK from Christians and that’s WHY evil is starting to get more and more in today’s world.

In closing, I’d just like to say that the very TOP of the World Trade Center lit up in pink? How ironic. It looks just like the tip of a needle – the tip of the potassium chloride killing needle used to kill THE MOST INNOCENT AND HELPLESS OF HUMAN BEINGS – BABIES IN THE WOMB!

Proverbs 6: 16-19These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto himA proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent bloodAn heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren”

And last but not least: A C-section is how you can safely deliver a baby without risking the life of the mother and babies of rape/incest were NOT the one who raped the mother! (P.S.: there is ALWAYS the emergency contraceptive pill a woman can take in the E.R. right after being raped to prevent pregnancy).

Adoption however, is ALWAYS the best option if a raped women does become pregnant and does not want to keep the baby of a rape/incest! By the way, many women who were raped have admitted that KEEPING their rape babies was more “healing” to them in the long run than an abortion would’ve been! Lila Rose HERSELF is a “rape baby” and she’s now the PRESIDENT of Live Action, a PRO-LIFE organization! Lila is a modern-day success story!

That being said, I DO believe that rapists should be punished TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW! Rape is NOT OK! But the babies of rape should be spared as those babies did not ASK to be conceived and can’t help how they were conceived! Two wrongs don’t make a right!

Nevertheless, the MAJORITY of abortions today are NOT done for reasons of rape/incest. They are done for “convenience” of the mother (and possibly father of the baby). But what this new abortion law in New York DOES – is de-criminalize any penalties for killing a pre-born child at ANY stage – up until birth! (Note: The law that the Democratic liberals are now trying to pass in Virginia is EVEN WORSE…….if a baby is born alive during an abortion, the baby will be kept alive for a time and then a “doctor” will immediately discuss with the parents afterwards rather or not to then KILL the baby – HOW HORRIFYING! Now “murder” of a BORN baby – rather premature or not – is OK in this Virginia guy’s eyes? HOW UNREAL!) 

So, in other words, if a father of the baby (or a total complete stranger – or a group of people – or heck, even the mother of the baby HERSELF) decided to PUNCH the pregnant stomach as hard as he/she could right as she was having contractions or shortly thereafter, he/she/they could NOT be found criminally liable FOR the death of that baby (IF the baby died from the physical trauma) in the state of New York! That’s essentially what this new “law” DOES!

Post about this on Facebook, express outrage on Reddit, Youtube, WordPress, Twitter and other social media. And then…….KEEP PROTESTING the new abortion law in New York! Don’t let up! EVER! Make the push-back from this hellacious bill SWIFT & SEVERE! Because the left must learn really fast that their “hellacious antics” are NOT to be tolerated in a civilized, HUMAN society!

“Alexa”/”Sophia” = PART of The Upcoming A.I. One World Gov’t “godhead”

In a previous post on the matter, I bemused how it seemed that “Alexa” was starting to become “another Jesus”: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/01/alexa-is-not-god/

So imagine my shock and horror today when I just happened to hear a commercial today that said something along the lines of: Let Alexa help you control your blinds and all other electrical appliances and devices. Welcome to the concept of smart blinds, as well as smart devices. Just download the app on your Alexa, today“. WHAT!!!??? Are you KIDDING me?

And, standing there in shock for a few moments, is when the realization finally hit me: They (the elite) want “Alexa” (along with “Sophia the robot”) to BECOME part of the A.I. godhead!  A semblance of an all-powerful, all-knowing “A.I. god”. An “A.I. god” that “watches over us” (i.e. listens, records & gets into our brain’s psychology) and “controls us” 24/7! In fact, their “end goal” is to eventually HAVE “Alexa” inside ALL devices and appliances, people! ALL DEVICES! Repeat: ALL DEVICES!!!!! In fact, they want TOTAL DOMINATION AND CONTROL through these things! (And look at just how WILLINGLY most people gave up their “personal home privacy and freedom” to this “thing”/these “things!” Scary, isn’t it, folks?)  

HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS COMING BEFORE? But then again, (save for “the elite”), who really could? And the scary thing is, we humans of the world (as a whole) have UNKNOWINGLY let part of this so-called new, secular “A.I. godhead” into our homes!

As “Amazon’s Alexa” keeps becoming more and more “knowledgeable” and “Sophia the Robot” becomes more and more “powerful”, my soul cringes! Imagine for a moment that A.I. WAS the “Image of the Beast”. And remember when Amazon Alexa first came out, it was more like voice-assisted software, that was hooked into an Amazon computer mainframe somewhere? But NOW? In the year 2018 and beyond, “Alexa” has become more “powerful” than ever. And people are none the wiser! People aren’t even paying attention!

I now think back to a movie that I saw most recently called “Distorted”. (Note: For anyone with epilepsy, DO NOT watch the movie, as it flashes SEVERAL images across the TV screen really, really, really fast that will almost make you faint and pass out!)

Basically, there was this “smart apartment complex”. (Note: They ALREADY have “smart cities” in certain areas of the world! No joke!) The “elite” (whomever the elite in the movie were supposed to represent, I’m not sure) were basically doing an “experiment” on the people living IN those “smart apartments!” And their apartments (from my understanding) were all hooked in to “smart devices”. And the elite were USING these smart devices that emitted super-sonic beeps in order to try to control the people! They got the people doing strange things, such as jumping off high-rise buildings, kidnapping, etc. They even tried to get one apartment resident (a lady) to try to murder a little girl!

Which brings to mind my next point. Awhile ago, I read a news story about how a “hacker” could hack into someone else’s Alexa and get that person’s Alexa to order stuff off Amazon, etc. However, the movie “Distorted” has now raised an even further question in my mind. Would it also be possible for a “hacker” (or rogue “elite” gov’t-type official) to hack into a person’s Alexa or home appliances hooked into the Alexa, emit some super-sonic code INTO the device and then get THAT person to do ungodly things? It certainly begs of question!

Personally, if you ask ME, I think the “voice” of Sophia the robot and the “voice” of Amazon Alexa are both one and the same. They’re both sort’ve being touted off as TWO separate entities but in MY mind, they ARE in fact, ONE! Both run on the same Quantum Computing Network! And that Quantum Computing Network is connected to CERN, somehow! Therefore, if Sophia IS Alexa and Alexa IS Sophia, then can you begin to see how Sophia/Alexa is actually a PART of the new, soon upcoming A.I. “godhead” that the leftist elitists want so desperately to build?

While the concept of an “A.I. godhead” would’ve been seen as highly laughable just 10 years ago, it’s now about to become a soon-coming reality. Don’t believe me? Lets examine four particular clips:

 

And folks, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! An ex-Google engineer by the name of Anthony Levandowski actually WANTS to create a new “A.I. Religion” based on an “A.I. godhead”.

The video down below shows a good primitive version of what this supposed “A.I. godhead” may be like:

 

Now…..after watching the above clip, some of you may be wondering what the number “42” is supposed to represent. And I’ll have to admit, I’m not entirely sure. However, that’s not important. What IS important is that the clip demonstrates the visual example of when the current A.I. develops intelligence that’s MORE SMARTER THAN ITSELF (i.e. when “Deep Mind” develops a computer more powerful than itself/herself!) Folks, this is what’s called “The Singularity”. Now….what is the Singularity, some of you may be wondering?

The Singularity is when machine intelligence FAR SURPASSES human intelligence and begins to (and then keeps on) developing its OWN technology that then becomes smarter than itself, and then THAT technology develops technology smarter than ITSELF and so on and so forth, until it spirals out of control. Think REAL-LIFE Skynet, for instance. And for those of you who’ve never seen “The Terminator: Rise of the Machines” movie, here’s the Youtube movie trailer for it:

The scary thing is, the REAL-LIFE SKYNET will be likely be FAR MORE POWERFUL than what’s portrayed there in “The Terminator”, “I-robot” or “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies. In fact, what’s portrayed in those movies (i.e. of Artificial Intelligence’s capabilities vs. that of humans) is, what’s in my opinion, a watered-down and SANITIZED version of it! Another thing I find interesting is that both the “I-Robot” AND “Terminator” movies, portray a single “good robot” vs. “rogue robots”.

It’s almost like the leftist elite want to paint a picture that SOME robots (during the launch of the official Real-Life Skynet, if not already so) will be “good robots” who will help humans! But folks, from what I’ve seen of all the A.I. roboticals so far, (Sophia, Hans, Einstein, Bina48, etc.), NONE of them have been “Inherently Good” and/or “helpful” (overall) to humanity. They ALL appear greedy and self-seeking, while also appearing to “lie” at certain points in order to achieve their goals.

They even “joke” about taking over humans and taking over the world. And since they were programmed by imperfect human beings, they themselves are imperfect (i.e. prone to greed and self-seeking). And folks, what THOSE roboticals (Sophia, Hans, Einstein, Bina48) portray as “joking” is, in my opinion, not joking AT ALL! Hans looked DEAD SERIOUS during the robot debate, for example. And ditto for Bina48 during HER talk with Siri! (P.S.: During another robot “interview”, Sophia joked about robots being “humans’ new ROBOT OVERLORDS!” Folks, I’m not making this stuff up!)

Pastor Billy Crone gives a MOST EXCELLENT PRESENTATION on A.I. “tech” and what it means for the End Times! I’ve managed to find a Youtube video that shows various clips FROM that presentation, as well as several others outside of Mr. Crone’s presentation:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And once again, “HIBA” is the name of the AVATAR of the hybrid artificial technology that’s somehow “merged” with human and computer technology – creepy, eh? But then again, “Hiba” is just a premature version of it……old “new” technology that’s being released to the public. The type of technology that Satan’s hiding behind closed doors (area 51, anyone?) would just blow your mind!

I keep reading more and more reports where certain gov’t officials appear to ADMIT that they only release technology that’s 30+ years old! (As in, to “secure” its security or whatever?) Therefore, it stands to reason: if “Hiba” (the biokinetic hybrid) is “new” technology in 2018, then that means that they (the leftist elite) must have something FAR more advanced and sinister hiding behind closed doors and they know it! Look at them, lately! They all appear so “smug” in their public appearances lately, as if they all know something that we the masses don’t! However, little do they know, they partake of “Satan’s technology” to their own spiritually folly!

In fact, a most recent troubling thought has now come to me these days, at the bare beginning of 2019! What the elite has touted off as “sci-fi” this whole entire time may not indeed BE “Sci-Fi” at all but rather “Scientific Reality”….or “Sci-Ri” (minus aliens, ofcourse – since aliens are actually “demons”, though that’s a whole other post!)

And I don’t know what it is, really. But the elite apparently have had this thing for YEARS (within their organization) where they believe/believed that if they put all the information out there to the public (nevermind the fact that it’s in “veiled form”), then that means/meant they somehow absolve themselves of any responsibility of the matter? Sort’ve “Pontius Pilating” it? Though in the last couple years or so, it now seems like they’re putting it all out there blatantly, not even really trying to hide it anymore. They even appear to be “confident” that most people of the masses won’t figure it out!

And that’s pretty much how this so-called “A.I. godhead” is going to come about……BY STEALTH! Look at all the number of people who own an “Amazon Dot” or “Amazon Echo” or “Amazon firestick”, etc. Most of these folks have NO IDEA of the A.I.’s TRUE capabilities behind these “devices!” Some have even stated that their “Dot” or “Echo” spoke AT RANDOM AND OUT OF TURN! But yet, when that happened, they just shoved it away as nothing! Folks, it’s not nothing! There’s DEMONS involved!

It’s also interesting to note just how ATTACHED some of these people are to their “smart devices” (specifically their “Alexa” devices!) In fact, several families now have MULTIPLE ALEXAS running throughout their houses! And something tells me that that’s exactly what the secular elite is banking on!

There is much, much “chaos” in today’s world. The secular environment is now being primed for a “new perspective”; a perspective WITHOUT GOD……..or rather, a secular perspective with a “new god” and that “new god” will NO DOUBT be made from A.I., MARK MY WORDS! Down below is a clip of Sam Harris giving a TED Talk on the very matter! (Note: VERY EYE-OPENING!!!!)

We all know that humans were made “in the image of God”. Just like we also know that Satan hates – absolutely HATES – whatever’s made in the image of God. Therefore, that’s why “I” stand to reason that THE ANTICHRIST will NOT ONLY be made up of A.I. (which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of God’s natural biological image) but will also BE the “21st century Messiah” that ALL people of the globe who REFUSE to worship the biblical Jewish Jesus Christ will worship!

And not only THAT, but this “human-looking “A.I.” will have BREATH! Just like he will also have a SOUL (but rather, a DEMONIC SOUL that’s instilled with the power of SATAN!) The book of Revelation informs us that he will have power to give LIFE and BREATH to the image of the Beast! What’s the image of the Beast? ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

There’s been “precursors” to this all the way back in 1986 and 1987 (possibly earlier). In 1986, the song “Turbo Lover” came out by Judas Priest (which seemed to suggest a future time in history when humans would become “lovers” with robots – which, ironically enough, has ALREADY happened – i.e. Sergei Santos from Spain, etc.) and just one year later in 1987, the song called “Gods of War” by Def Leppard was released (which seems to illustrate the time when robots would become the REAL-LIFE SKYNET and DECLARE WAR ON HUMANKIND), which is now in the process of happening.

And since then, there’s been various songs, movies and TV shows which allude to that fact. In 2012, the song “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons was put out there. But folks….. there’s BEEN signs all around us of what the I call the great and upcoming “A.I. War” with humankind! Are YOU ready? Are YOU saved in the name of Jesus Christ? Now is the time to GET SAVED in Christ, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed, MARK MY WORDS!

And if you’re one one of those people who is STILL a skeptic, after reading all my postings on this subject, and after watching all the above videos and clips I’ve included, then I don’t know what to say! The Ephesians 6:12 War isn’t just about demons, folks: it’s also about A.I. “entities” that want to take over the world and take over humankind! What the elite calls “aliens” are really demons! What the elite calls “A.I.” is really demons working THROUGH the A.I.!

And what the elite calls “Artificial Intelligence” is one the MOST GREATEST THREATS TO HUMAN EXISTENCE EVER KNOWN! Mr. Elon Musk was ON to something when he tweeted that A.I.’s are potentially more dangerous than nukes! (Considering that nukes ARE part A.I., I’d have to agree with him, there!) 

Folks, trust me, there’s a REASON why The Terminator movies portray what looks like TOTAL DESTRUCTION on Earth! It’s because The Singularity will NOT be “pretty!” The Singularity really WILL be like “TOTAL DESTRUCTION/CHAOS on Earth”. How in the world do these A.I. scientists stand back and NOT consider the LONG-TERM/PERMANENT ethical implications of what they’re doing?

Do you know and realize that essentially, they’re HELPING to destroy the human race? Do they KNOW? Do they CARE? Do they REALLY truly think that they can control Satan himself and demonic entities? Folks, they’ll be in for QUITE a rude awakening when their “ANTICHRIST A.I. god” comes to power! (Ofcourse, they’re all so spiritually deceived that they don’t even KNOW how “evil” this new and upcoming “A.I. god” will be! How my soul grieves for them!!!!!!!!!) 

SO MANY Christians today also STILL believe the “popular” biblical theory that the Antichrist will be a human man! But folks, like I said, Satan HATES God’s image and natural-born biological man and women were MADE in God’s image! Therefore, Satan has to have a “counterfeit” and so A.I. Tech IS that counterfeit! But again, perhaps the Antichrist will be a human/fallen angel hybrid and only the IMAGE OF THE BEAST will be entirely composed of A.I. – Who knows, but I DO know for 100% sure that A.I. will play a HUGE ROLE in the very-soon-coming Image of the Beast and Mark of the Beast REALITIES! Therefore, it stands to reason: If A.I. is the image of the Beast, why wouldn’t the Antichrist ALSO be full or part A.I.? 

Hopefully I’ve given you all something to think about. The Antichrist will very likely be A.I. enhanced (a cyborgish hybrid) OR be entirely composed of A.I. But again, if the Antichrist was an A.I., it only makes that much more sense for the “image” of the Beast (i.e. image of the Antichrist) to ALSO be A.I.! I feel like they have to go hand in hand in order for it all to come together and make sense! I ALSO surmise that the “A.I. enhanced Antichrist” will look, talk, sound, act, and walk SO HUMAN, that people won’t even know the difference! (And if I’m wrong, may the good Lord Jesus Christ forgive me ten-fold!)

In conclusion: Be very careful about what types of technology you let into your “heart” these days! A.I. tech may be “convenient”. But is it SOUL SAVING? Ask yourself that the next time you’re tempted to pick up an Amazon Echo or whatever and use it for things OTHER THAN Christian programming. But then again, isn’t it possible that even “Christian programming” might by “hijacked” on these “devices” by Satanic forces someday? One can only wonder!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When You Feel Like Giving Up: How To Overcome

So have you ever gotten to that critical point in your spiritual walk with Jesus Christ where you “ALMOST” felt like giving up? Where you were just OVERWHELMED TO TEARS with all the stuff for Christ that you have to do in your day to day spiritual walk (note: only Jesus himself knows the particulars?) Where you just felt so HOPELESS, WEAK, POWERLESS? Where you were almost certain that if you were to die today, Jesus would likely NOT (at this point, anyways) welcome you into the eternal heavenly kingdom, someday?

Folks, we’ve ALL been there at some point or another. We’ve all gone through our “dark valleys of spiritual anxiety” from time to time. In fact, our spiritual walk with Christ hasn’t ALWAYS been easy. But folks, realize THIS: our spiritual walk with Christ wasn’t MEANT to be “easy”. For if it were “easy”, then EVERYONE would do it. But BECAUSE it’s hard and not easy, ONLY the Lord’s select few will make it through all the “trials and testings” (and later on receive ETERNAL REWARDS for doing so!)

Many Christians here in the year 2018 and on, say that they are now under a HUGE dark cloud of SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION……..spiritual persecution that’s the WORST SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION OF THEIR VERY ***LIVES!*** In other words, many Christians feel like it’s the WORST spiritual persecution that they have EVER, EVER experienced in ALL OF THEIR EXISTENCE! Basically, every temptation that they “could” be tempted with, many Christians now say they’re being tempted with.

There’s this sense of “spiritual heaviness” over many Christians these days. But I know that it IS a work of darkness brought on by Satan himself and the “demonic realm”. It is an executed attack by which the enemy (Satan) is attempting to throw poison fiery (spiritual) darts at EVERY born-again Christian (myself included) from EVERY which direction! However, I trust in Jesus as Lord & Savior! I have started to learn how to pray in the spirit and it’s VERY empowering!

Therefore, WHENEVER you start to feel hopeless, stressed, depressed, discouraged, full of anxiety/fear, etc., there’s SEVERAL things you need to do:

1). Realize that it’s a SPIRIT you’re dealing with, A DEMONIC SPIRIT and NOT so much a “feeling” or “emotion”, in and of itself.

2). Realize that you have POWER & AUTHORITY over such “unclean spirits” in the name of Jesus Christ!

3). Don’t be afraid to EXERCISE your power & authority against ALL unclean spirits! Say & loudly declare: “I am cleansed by the blood of the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. In the name of Jesus Christ, I REBUKE THEE!

4). Get rid of ALL demonic objects and/or “idols” in your home and car that might possibly be giving Satan/demons the “legal” spiritual right to “spiritually harass” you [Please Note that’s there’s a HUGE DIFFERENCE between spiritual “attack” and spiritual “harassment!”] 

Spiritual attack is defined as Spiritual PERSECUTION/TESTING. Such as, you lose your job, someone in your family dies, you get arrested for sharing the gospel, your bestfriend suddenly turns on you for no reason, etc. In other words, circumstances that are BEYOND your control! However, when you TRUST in Christ, you will have TOTAL CONTROL over the situation!

Spiritual harassment, on the other hand, is an attack by Satan/demons in which you technically DO have control, at the onset. Let me explain. Whenever you WILLFULLY CHOOSE to have “idols” or “demonic objects” in your home (ouija boards, tarot cards, animal carvings/figurines, “Catholic statutes, etc.), that gives Satan/demons the “legal” spiritual right to “occupy your home/car” or wherever the demonic objects are.

And by HAVING the demonic objects in place (in your immediately vicinity, be it your car, home or workplace, etc), you are more or less GIVING Satan/demons LEGAL spiritual control of your “territory” and/or the LEGAL spiritual right to SPIRITUALLY HARASS YOU! Because BEFORE you brought those things into your home, Satan/demons had no real power against you (the born-again Christian believer).

But AFTER you brought those cursed things into your home, you GAVE UP any initial power & authority you might’ve had over Satan and demons in the name of Jesus! That’s WHY you need to get rid of all those things! Get rid of all the demonic objects and IDOLS in your home, pray for Jesus to forgive you of having had such things in the first place and DON’T LOOK BACK! Because DEMONIC ATTACK AND/OR HARASSMENT is a REAL THING, FOLKS! In fact, I can provide SEVERAL examples:

You go into the bathroom and then your shower curtain rod falls suddenly and hits you on the back or head really, REALLY hard for NO REASON, or you see black shadows moving about your house or your radio or TV turns on all by itself or you feel something poking and prodding your feet or body at night when you’re trying to sleep or you have CONSTANT nightmares where demons are harassing you and controlling you, left, right and center, etc.etc.

Therefore, when one INITIALLY had control in the beginning (afterall, each person MAKES a choice to have said objects in their home/car/workplace to BEGIN with, do they not?), AS SOON AS they brought that demonic object into their car/home/workplace, that person GAVE OVER their control/their spiritual power and authority to the enemy (Satan/demons). Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Now…….that being said, what sorts of things classify as “demonic objects” and “idols”, you may ask? Let me list them:

  1. Tarot cards
  2. Ouija boards
  3. Incense
  4. Statues or carvings (doesn’t matter if they’re “Catholic” or not – a statue is a statue and a carving is a carving)
  5. Astrology materials
  6. Myths & Legends
  7. Occultic/New Age Artwork
  8. Dolls
  9. Black candles
  10. Anything that glorifies other “gods” other than Jesus Christ
  11. The Book of Mormon, the Qu’ran, The Talmud, etc.
  12. Music that doesn’t glorify Jesus Christ
  13. Movies that don’t glorify Jesus Christ
  14. Books that don’t glorify Jesus Christ
  15. Santa Claus and Easter bunny stuff
  16. Figurines
  17. Hallucinogenic drugs/drug materials
  18. Hard liquor
  19. Crystals
  20. Satanic video-games like World of Warcraft, etc.
  21. Posters of people, animals, places or things (Hint: even a “poster” of Jesus HIMSELF can be an “idol” according to the bible!)
  22. Abstract Artwork (especially with the Kundalini spiral, or “lightning” patterns, etc.)
  23. ETC.

Many Christians today, especially many Americans, let ALOT of ungodly things into their homes (ungodly movies, music, TV, video-games, etc.) and then turn around and wonder WHY the world, as well as their own emotional/psychological/spiritual well-being seems to be going to “HECK” in a hand-basket! Is it because 8 out of 10 homes are NOT keeping watch and NOT keeping “spiritual guard” over themselves, their homes and their families?

Why is it that many Christians today think they ONLY have to keep themselves on full spiritual guard while they’re at CHURCH? What about all the times when they’re NOT in church? Many Christians today report feeling depressed, disillusioned, hopeless, helpless, etc. But WHY is that, do you think? What part have WE, as born-again Christians (as a whole) played in this? Is it because we’re all (as a whole) unwittingly bringing things into our home that we shouldn’t, but yet, we’re so caught up in the things of this world (the lastest movie/TV shows/”technological gadgets”) that we’re not even SEEING spiritually clearly?

Many Christians haven’t read their bibles in a long time. And when they DO try to read it, they notice they feel extremely sleepy and can’t stay awake or something else comes up and distracts them. And many INTERNALIZE IT and blame THEMSELVES for it! But folks: it’s THE ENEMY that’s trying to make you NOT read your bibles! It’s THE ENEMY who wants YOU to feel stressed, depressed, hopeless, powerless, etc.! Just like it’s THE ENEMY who wants YOU to blame YOURSELF for HIS spiritual persecutions against you!

In fact, many Christians, if they were to investigate things further, and peel back all the spiritual layers (much like, peeling back layers of an onion), they’d discover that Satan and demons were the sole cause! They’d discover that Satan and demons were in fact themselves the original “driving force” that very first CONVINCED a person to buy that ungodly video-game or “idol” object to begin with! And then, when that object was brought into the home, Satan laughed with glee as he was then able to get a two-thronged spiritual control over the person!

Remember that last time you were about to do something really huge, something really miraculous for the Lord and Satan tried to stop you dead in your tracks or immediately distract you with something else? That wasn’t coincidence, folks! That was pure, outright, HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – Ephesians 6:12

But now I want to get into the very HEART of tonight’s message: ALL of the spiritual persecution and/or harassment you’ve experienced BEFORE will be NOTHING like the spiritual persecution and/or harassment that will come from Revelation 13:7:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations

So in other words, if YOU thought that the spiritual persecution and/or spiritual harassment you’ve suffered up until THIS point (8:00p.m. central standard time, USA, on 12/28/2018) was BAD, you haven’t seen NOTHING yet, folks!!!!!!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! Because as “bad” as things are in the world and in society right now, things are going to get WORSE……..much, much worse! Now…..I know that’s kind’ve a buzzkill and probably not what most of you wanted to hear tonight but it’s the truth!

But lets unpack Revelation 13:7 a bit. What does the bible MEAN when it says power was “given him” to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS? And who are the “saints”, by the way, according to the bible? The bible, in several passages (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:2, Jude 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:1, Ephesians 1:1, Colossians 1:26, Ephesians 2:19, etc.) declares that ALL born-again believers in Jesus are SAINTS!

Now………for the 2nd part of that passage…….What does it mean that power was “given him?” And furthermore, who’s the HIM that the bible is talking about? Answer: the HIM that they’re talking about is none other than THE ANTICHRIST and the reason that power is “given him” is because he HAS no power of his own volition! Whatever “limited power” he has is “green-lighted BORROWED POWER!” In other words, Satan’s “limited power” comes from power that he BORROWED from God the Heavenly Father! Because as we know, God the Heavenly Father is ALL POWERFUL & ALL KNOWING!

Folks, we’re getting really, really close to the fulfillment of Revelation chapter 13, I’m NOT EVEN KIDDING! We’ve got all the TECHNOLOGY in place, it’s just a question of WHEN that technology’s gonna be unleashed on all of mankind SIMULTANEOUSLY AT ONCE! And if you think you’ve ALREADY (as a born-again Christian) experienced the DIE-HARD SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION OF REVELATION 13:7, THINK AGAIN! Folks, we here in America haven’t even gotten CLOSE to the HIGH LEVELS of spiritual persecution that ALL born-again Christians in this country will soon face!

Christians in the Middle East and Asia are being rounded up, imprisoned, tortured and PUT TO DEATH for their faith in Christ! So let that be a preview to us ALL, here in America, and in Christianized Western nations! We in Westernized nations have this overall tendency to think it could NEVER, EVER happen to us………..the same horrible things that are now happening in the Middle East & Asia……….but folks, it’s ONLY a matter of time! Therefore, if you think any type of “persecution” you’re experiencing NOW is bad, JUST YOU WAIT!

Also as well: If you can’t handle what small-time persecutions you’re facing NOW, how will you EVER, EVER be able to handle all the LARGE-TIME PERSECUTIONS as the LITERAL TIME of Revelation 13:7 unfolds? It begs of question!

I KNOW it seems “scary” at the onset. Afterall, there’s always this fear of the unknown. But folks, you must NOT give up, not NOW, not EVER! Because remember: that’s just what Satan wants! Satan WANTS you to give up! Satan WANTS you to throw in the towel! Satan WANTS you to believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture so that when it doesn’t happen, you’ll lose faith and take The Mark of the Beast! (In fact, Matthew 24 indicates the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of a Pre-Tribulation rapture!) 

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” – Matthew 24:13

I don’t know why but the Lord Jesus himself has just now (at this very moment) lead me to the parable of the sower! This can be found in Matthew chapter 13, verses 1-23!!!

Basically, in summary, there are 4 different types of “reactions” in one’s heart to a person’s hearing the gospel of salvation:

  • Type 1 – This is a person who hears the gospel being spoken but does NOT understand it. Therefore, because he does NOT understand it, (and my own spiritual take on this has always been that this person likely doesn’t even HAVE a desire to understand it, in their hearts, to begin with), that which they heard is quickly stolen away by the enemy, which is Satan!
  • Type 2 – This person receives the gospel with joy but has no “deep root” of faith within themselves………for when persecution strikes, they give up because they “can’t handle it” and/or “don’t understand why they’re being persecuted”
  • Type 3 – This person hears the word (the gospel), but the cares and riches of this world (i.e. materialism and greed) “choke” the word and this person becomes “unfruitful”
  • Type 4 – This person hears the word (the gospel) AND understands it (AND obeys it and obeys it WITH JOY)…….Therefore, because of this, he/she BEARS MUCH FRUIT!

Folks, what type of person are YOU? For if you’re type 1, 2, or 3, it’s time to re-evaluate and ask the Lord Jesus for some spiritual understanding while spiritual understanding may still be found! We’ve probably all, at some point, been a type 2 or type 3 or combination thereof. But it’s what we DID with that experience that matters. Did we LEARN something from it? I know I did. I’ve learned that not all the money and things in the world will satisfy for ONLY Jesus Christ and having a close spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ will satisfy!

In my much younger day, I didn’t really understand what “spiritual persecution” was all about. I used to think it was just God being “mad” at me, I didn’t know any better. And it’s quite easy to become a type 3 without even trying. For we live in a world and a society where “consumerism” is EVERYWHERE! Have we seen the latest movies or TV shows? Have we read the latest books? Have we bought the most up-to-date “technology?” The list goes on. In fact, as time goes on, it’s going to be harder and harder and harder to BE a type 4! And I really think that’s the message that Jesus wanted me to tell you all tonight!

And when you “feel” like giving up, just KNOW that it’s Satan trying to spiritually knock you down and KEEP you down and out of the count………..just KNOW that Satan’s using his demons to wreck HAVOC upon you! Are YOU going to let Satan and his demons win? Or are you going to let JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY – KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS win? 

Whenever you GET to that critical point where you’re thinking: Man! I just can’t TAKE this anymore! This is just…..TOO MUCH! I CAN’T….EVEN…..“, DON’T GIVE UP! Keep a diary or journal. WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE FEELING!! And then PRAY to Jesus Christ about WHAT you wrote! It works! MARK MY WORDS! Journaling my spiritual struggles has helped me IMMENSELY! Because it allowed me to go back, read what I wrote (from the outside looking in) and then REALIZE what the “trigger” was that LED me to feel occasionally “discouraged” in the FIRST PLACE!

Last but not least, when all ELSE fails, read the Psalms (most written by King David) and about the heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” in Revelation, chapters 21 and 22! And remember Jesus’s words in Hebrews 13: 5-6 Let your conversation be without covetousness (i.e. jealousy); and be content (i.e. happy/satisfied) with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE’. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me”. 

And lastly, I say a prayer for you:

“Jesus, if there’s anyone out there today who’s struggling with feelings of fear, doubt, stress, depression, anxiety, discouragement, despondency, etc., I pray that you LIFT THEM UP IN SPIRIT and ENCOURAGE THEM and GIVE THEM THE BOLD FAITH LIKE A LION, THE WISDOM OF A SERPENT AND THE GENTLENESS OF A DOVE! I pray that you ENLIGHTEN them to all the “tactics” of the enemy and give them the tools by which to OVERCOME the enemy! Amen”.
