Anger Solves NOTHING!

Anger. It’s an emotion we’ve ALL felt from time to time. The person in front of us at the checkout is taking too long. Someone cuts us off in traffic. Someone at work is micro-managing us. A friend, family member or complete stranger says something insensitive to us. We find that there was a mistake on our tax refund and/or that we’ve been overcharged on one or more of our bills. We’re driving a long distance and one of the tires suddenly has a blowout. The cat hops up on the cabinet (while we got our back turned for just THREE seconds) and helps him/herself to a piece of “sandwich” we’re in the process of making for lunch.

WHATEVER the situation, anger solves NOTHING! Anger will NOT, by any means:

  1. Make the person taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R at the checkout line in front of us suddenly speed up in a jiffy
  2. Make the person who cut us off in traffic UN-CUT us off in traffic or magically make them look over at us and mouth the words: I’m sorry
  3. Make the coworker who’s micro-managing us suddenly STOP, smile and say Sorry….I guess I AM micro-managing you, my apologies, didn’t mean to
  4. Make the friend, family member or complete stranger IMMEDIATELY apologize for their actions and ask for forgiveness
  5. Make the tax refund mistake go away or make the numbers magically change to the correct amount before our very eyes
  6. Make the tire IMMEDIATELY “re-correct” itself so we can keep on driving
  7. Make the cat UN-EAT the bite of sandwich and meow that they’re “sorry” (well….they might possibly meow that they’re sorry, but that’s besides the point………)

It’s pretty much a given that EVERY single human being on the planet is going to experience frustration and ANGER at SOME point in their existence. That’s a given. But it’s how we DEAL with that anger that matters.

Lets say you’re in a work situation. Your coworker Steve is micro-managing you to the HILT! No…..put that April file over here with the February files, that way, we can keep better track of it. So then you do and not 30 seconds later, he “barks” at you AGAIN: No….don’t put it at the BOTTOM of the pile, put it at the TOP of the pile of February documents (even if you’re sitting there questioning like, WHAT?? That makes no sense!!! The TOP of the pile???? Where the file might possibly not be found or be confused with the February or January files? What the HECK???”

And then, just to test your buttons of patience EVEN FURTHER (or so it seems), good-ole “Steve-O” comes at you YET AGAIN: “Put all your most current May and April 2017 folders in the BOTTOM DRAWERS, we NEVER put them in the TOP DRAWERS that are closest within reach, YOU KNOW THAT!

And it’s usually at THIS point in time that our fragile human minds want to scream EXPLETIVES at “Steve-O” and GIVE HIM A PIECE OF OUR MIND! (Which, ironically enough, is likely what Steve-O wants, in the first place. So why give him the satisfaction?)

But folks, we got to realize something, here. Whenever there’s something that “testing our patience to the limits“, it’s because of 2 reasons:

A). Satan and his demons are trying EVER-SO-HARD to BREAK US…….to GET us to FEEL angry, to GET us to FEEL resentful, to GET us to CUSS UP A STORM, SNAP, and/or possibly belittle others in the process!

B). Jesus is “using” the experience to TEACH us “patience”, as odd as that may sound.

Now, there’s TWO types of anger mentioned in the bible. There is what’s called RIGHTEOUS ANGER (Jesus over-turning the money changers’ tables in The Temple) and UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER (Cain’s anger over Abel, Esau’s anger towards Jacob, Saul pursuing David, Moses killing the Egyptian that was harassing a Hebrew slave, Herod’s anger with the 3 Wisemen, etc.)

Now, we can all “claim” that OUR ANGER towards the “sinful behaviors of others” is classified as “righteous anger”. But when’s the last time we honestly got “righteously angry” over the sinful behavior(s) of OURSELVES?

That’s PRECISELY the EXACT issue that Jesus is discussing in Matthew 7: 3-5 which states: “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye

In other words, we can’t fully “call out/rebuke” the unrighteousness in OTHERS until we first “call out/rebuke” the unrighteousness in OURSELVES………Because Romans 3:23 says: “For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God“. That means that NOBODY is perfect. NONE. None on the ENTIRE EARTH, past, future or present.

The ONLY being that is WITHOUT sin is ofcourse, JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY. While he lived on the Earth, he was BLAMELESS and WITHOUT SIN. That’s WHY he was a suitable sacrifice unto God to “take away the PENALTY of the sins of the world/mankind”. Because only one who is completely WITHOUT SIN can be a suitable enough sacrifice to TAKE AWAY THE PENALTY OF ALL SIN (in God’s eyes), if that makes any sense?

Now, lets look at the 7 above “anger-inducing cases” and see what happens when those people DON’T sinfully ACT on their anger:

  1. The person getting “irritated” at person in front of them in line sighs, takes a deep breath, patiently waits and then it’s THEIR turn. Life goes on.
  2. The person was cut off in traffic realizes that there’s a possibility that the person who cut them off did so “accidentally” and doesn’t fret about it. 
  3. The person being micro-managed at work stops, takes a deep breath and realizes that the micro-manager is either highly stressed themselves or only trying to be helpful and doesn’t fret about it.
  4. The person who an insensitive thing was said to rationally realizes that the person probably didn’t even realize what was said was insensitive and just rolls with it. Life goes on.
  5. The person who sees a mistake on their tax refund sighs, takes a deep breath and then calmly calls the IRS phone number to let them know what’s going on. They know eventually they’ll get the check for the correct amount and don’t fret about it.
  6. The person who had a tire blow-out will eventually fix it themselves or stay calm, figuring that help will soon be on the way.
  7. The person who had their kitty eat part of their sandwich LAUGHS about it, instead of gets mad about it, then makes themselves another sandwich cause hey, it’s not the end of the world, right?

Now, we’ve SEEN cases in the bible where people ACTED IMMEDIATELY on their anger:

  1. Cain killing Abel
  2. Esau plotting to kill Jacob
  3. Saul plotting to kill David
  4. Herod killing all boys, aged 2 and under
  5. Moses killing the Egyptian, who was “being brutal” towards the Israelite slave worker
  6. Moses SMASHING the clay tablets of stone with God’s law on them (upon seeing the disobedient children of Israel)
  7. Balaam beating his donkey for what HE thought was “weird behavior”
  8. Jezebel plotting to kill Elijah
  9. Haman being FURIOUS over Mordecai not bowing down to him and giving him obeisance
  10. Jonah got mad at God for NOT destroying the city of Nineveh (after his prophesying) AND for making him preach there in the first place?
  11. ETC.

Just like we can see cases where anger was likely HELD IN……..(and not acted upon):

  1. Abraham was likely secretly resentful/angry of Sarah demanding Hagar & Ishmael’s “banishment” since it was Sarah’s idea in the FIRST place for Abraham to marry Hagar and have children by her.
  2. When Jacob deceived Esau out of his birthright and out of his “patriarchal blessing”, Isaac was likely “silently angry” with both his sons (Esau, for being so “careless” about his birthright/blessing and with Jacob for having deceived Esau AND HIM).
  3. Jacob was likely VERY ANGRY (on the inside) with Laban for deceiving him into marrying Leah, instead of Rachel
  4.  Leah was likely resentful/angry towards her father for making her marry a man, Jacob, who clearly did NOT love HER, the way that Jacob loved Rachel, her younger sister), with Jacob (for loving Rachel more than her, and spending the MAJORITY of his nights with Rachel) AND with Rachel, for “being the favorite” of Jacob, etc.
  5. Jacob was likely resentful/angry (or at the VERY least, highly “annoyed”) with Leah for “buying a night with him with her son Reuben’s mandrakes”
  6. Old Testament Joseph was likely secretly angry with his brothers for selling him off as a slave, etc.
  7. Jacob (as well as Benjamin?) were likely secretly angry with all the other sons, after “initially” discovering the truth about Joseph, who was “far away in Egypt”
  8. Shem & Japheth were likely secretly angry with their brother Ham, for acting so foolishly and dishonorable with their “drunken” father, Noah
  9. New Testament Joseph was likely secretly angry with his espoused, Mary, for what HE must’ve thought was her “going out on him”, BEFORE discovering that she was “immaculately pregnant with the Messiah, Jesus Christ”
  10. Mary’s own parents were likely secretly angry with her for what THEY thought was her “dishonorable behavior” before THEY knew she was “miraculously pregnant with the Messiah”
  11. ETC.

It’s funny how many Christians today sort’ve hold alot of the biblical characters up on a pedestal and act as though they never “thought” or “did” anything wrong. But folks, ALL biblical characters (save for Jesus Christ himself) were FAR FROM PERFECT. And many of them (just like many of us do, TODAY) got ANGRY and IMMEDIATELY ACTED UPON THAT ANGER!

As for all the bible characters that seemed to “hold it in”, for every single time they were able to be patient and hold their anger IN, there was likely a counter time in their lives when they did NOT hold their anger in and acted more like the “insta-charge angerers” list up above.

Now think back to the last time you got angry about something…….TRULY ANGRY. Did it solve anything? Did it make the situation better? Or did it just make things worse? How did it impact the others around you? (And how did it affect your children, spouse, coworkers and even PETS?) Did it turn out to be a worthwhile experience? Did it make you feel happy and fulfilled at all? Did you feel as though the anger was “worth it?” Did you feel as though it pleased Jesus Christ at all?

Because the truth is, anger solves NOTHING and takes away EVERYTHING! It takes away your mind, heart, sanity and spirit! And if left PERPETUALLY UNCHECKED, anger can be the catalyst for you losing your own very SOUL! Anger causes people to do MANY, MANY unrighteous and harmful things (both to themselves and to others). Anger causes hate and violence, rape and murder, ruined relationships and marriages, all sorts of sin and crime. It’s not worth it.

The next time you feel angry (about ANYTHING or ANYONE), just take a deep breath, relax, take ANOTHER deep breath and IMMEDIATELY re-asses the situation. And ask yourself, “is it worth it?”

Anger won’t repair your relationship or marriage……..won’t make things better for you at home or work……..won’t make you a better son/daughter, friend, coworker, spouse, niece/nephew, grandson/granddaughter, etc.

Anger (in and of itself) will help destroy everything you’ve ever worked for. Don’t let it win. Don’t let Satan and his demons win. Remember that WHEN the Old Testament characters unleashed their anger, unchecked, they were PUNISHED for it by God! However…..whenever they held their anger in and did NOT act on it, they were BLESSED FOR IT, BY GOD!

Now, that doesn’t mean that it’s not alright to feel angry from time to time, as anger is a normal, human emotion. It’s just what we DO with that anger that counts. Ephesians 4: 26-27 says: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil”. So, in other words, when we let anger stew and come out full strength, the bible says we are “giving place to the devil”, meaning, we’re giving him leeway in our lives!  

I want to share my own personal experience here with anger and what all it’s done (or hasn’t done) for me. I’m usually a patient person and it takes alot to get me angry. But when my patience is tested to the hilt, I don’t tend to get just a “little” angry, I get VERY ANGRY! And all the times I got REALLY ANGRY, it did absolutely NOTHING for me. In fact, it has DESTROYED close relationships I’ve had in my life! It has taken so much FROM ME and has done absolutely nothing FOR me!

Anger robs the soul of LIFE! It really does. You can even spend your whole entire LIFE being mad at someone (or at God, even). Only to later find that it SOLVES NO PURPOSE! People that were estranged from parents/friends/relatives, for example, and hated them for YEARS? When they DO finally make up with them and start speaking to them again, they’re oftentimes GRIEVED about all that WASTED TIME that they COULD’VE SPENT together, making amends and letting bygones be bygones.

And all the times in my life when I just let my anger go, did NOT act on it, but prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ about it and trusted JESUS with it? Miraculous things would start to happen…….Things at work and home would start to run much smoother……..things that made me so angry before no longer seemed like such a big deal, anymore……the grass & trees looked greener, the sun looked brighter, the singing birds sounded more beautiful, people were nicer, plus I was FAR more content & happier……happier than I’ve ever been, actually…….

So if you’re angry about someTHING or someONE, I want you to ask yourself if it’s worth it. Is it worth all that LOST TIME that you COULD be spending making amends with that person/those people? It says in the bible that we must forgive others if we ourselves want to be forgiven. So what does that entail, one might ask? Well, for one, it means LETTING GO OF ANGER. I know that’s hard to do. I know it’s easier said than done. (Been there, done that, I KNOW how it feels). But if we want to move FORWARD (both, in our spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ AND with each other), then we MUST let go of our resentments/ANGER (anger towards God/Jesus, towards other people, & towards ourselves, etc.)

Even SELF-ANGER (anger at self) is DESTRUCTIVE and serves no purpose. For how can we faithfully serve God/Jesus is we’re too busy condemning ourselves to oblivion? Who CARES about what sin we did 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 2 years ago or 2 months ago? Does that REALLY hold any true bearing for what we’re doing for the Lord Jesus Christ in the HERE and the NOW?

The anti-thesis of anger is PATIENCE…..humbled PATIENCE. Jesus Christ puts us in “long lines”, etc. at the bank or grocery store, etc. to teach us PATIENCE. Jesus puts us in EVERY “patience-testing situation” to teach us PATIENCE. In fact, did you know that Satan the Devil gets ANGRY whenever WE are PATIENT? It’s true. And whenever WE get ANGRY and ACT ON IT, Satan’s happy as a lark! That’s WHY we should never let Satan win in the “war on anger”.

If you or someone you know is currently struggling with the perpetual problem of ANGER, I would HIGHLY encourage you to pray to the Lord Jesus Christ about it, HUMBLE YOURSELVES before Jesus, give your whole LIFE to him, and then, just sit back and watch all the miraculous things he’ll do in your life, when you CONQUER YOUR UNRIGHTEOUS ANGER IN JESUS’S NAME! 😉

And yes, though I DO still struggle with anger in my life from time to time (especially in the work setting), I’m getting much, much better these days at conquering it in Jesus’s name! And I pray that all of you will continue to do the same! 😉

Drug use in TV shows: The Latest Preconditioning Of The Masses

George Orwell pic

Ever since 9/11, Americans have been systematically pre-conditioned by the elite to believe whatever the media and gov’t has LED them to believe. And in past 5 years or so, it’s ONLY gotten worse, folks!

Not only are we now being INVADED by the “transgender mafia” in today’s mass media, who, for example, believe that biological gender is no longer “scientific fact”. It would rather seem that in TODAY’S godless society, gender is now determined by FEELINGS and NOT by actual biological reality!

But along with the pro-homosexual, pro-transgender, pro-socialism, pro-abortion and pro-immigration etc. “Movements”, there is also YET ANOTHER “Movement” that is SILENTLY HAPPENING….the secret movement to GLAMORIZE/LEGITIMIZE drug use! And the elite come at us SO subtly with it, that we don’t even really see it happening!

Several of today’s TV and Movie Producers want to try to trick US (the American people) into thinking that THEIR movies and TV shows reflect the “natural reality” that is today’s world and also that they’re just producing movies and TV shows that viewers are DEMANDING. But that’s not true, folks! Because the Luciferian elite has “an agenda”: and their “agenda” is to DESENSITIZE US to things that DISPLEASE GOD (such as abortion, murder, drug use, transgenderism, violence, etc.)

In fact, when I most recently did a Google search to try to find out how many of today’s TV shows feature drug use, I was ASTOUNDED!

But again…….it didn’t really surprise me much since there have been several “mini-drug epidemics” in various pockets across the U.S.! So it begs of question…….Were these drug-addicted TV characters produced as a result OF the “mini-drug epidemics” across various pockets of the U.S. or were the “mini-drug epidemics” actually caused BY some of these TV shows that try to “glamorize/legitimize” drug use and/or the drug-dealing/using “lifestyle?”

People keep saying that it’s ONLY “young people” that are “impressionable”. But guess what, folks? People IN GENERAL are “impressionable”. Because if they weren’t, society (as a whole) NEVER, EVER would’ve accepted the “concepts” of 3rd-trimester abortions, homosexual “marriage”, transgenderism, and the “idea” of letting a full-grown man into a ladies bathroom! Think about it, folks!

For a long time, the American public has been lied to! Through music, movies, court cases, newspaper/magazine articles, books and TV shows, the “godless elite” has attempted to wreck havoc on EVERY American soul!

They WANT us to believe that homosexuality/transgenderism is “good”, they WANT us to believe that abortion is “okay”, they WANT us to believe that socialism is “great” and that religion is “evil”, just like they now WANT us to believe that drugs are “good”, “glamorous” and “OK”…….

Look no further than the following TV shows and/or movie characters to see exactly what I mean:

1). Wendy Case in Sons of Anarchy – addicted to METH & HEROIN

2). Bubbles in The Wire – addicted to HEROIN

3). Renton in Trainspotting – addicted to HEROIN

4). Tyrone Biggums in Chapelle’s Show – addicted to CRACK

5). Christoper Molisanti in Sopranos – addicted to HEROIN, etc.

6). Sherlock in Sherlock Holmes – addicted to COCAINE & MORPHINE

7). Dr. House on House – addicted to VICODIN

8). Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad – addicted to METH & HEROIN, etc.

9). ENTIRE CAST of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – addicted to INHALANTS, CRACK, ECSTASY, COCAINE, etc.

10). George Jung in Blow – addicted to HEROIN & COCAINE, etc.

11). Jack Bauer in 24 – addicted to HEROIN

12). Philip Pearson in Travelers – addicted to HEROIN

Plus many, many more! And as you can see, 8 of the 12 (over 60%) have to do with HEROIN ADDICTION while 3 of the 12 (25%) have to do with COCAINE ADDICTION.

Drugs were once frowned upon in society. But now…….there seems to be this slow “societal shift”……Now, the Luciferian elite are trying to make drugs seem “cool”, “fun” and “in style”.

Many people today don’t have “time” to read their bibles or spend time with the Lord in prayer. But hey…..they have time for their “movies” and their “TV shows”, am I right? And THAT folks, is what the Luciferian elite is banking on.

Research even shows what happens to our brains when we see visual and verbal images of something over and over and over again in the mass media; we become desensitized to it to the point where we don’t even hardly notice it anymore. And THAT folks, is ALSO another thing the Luciferian elite is banking on.

People’s minds are impressionable (ESPECIALLY young children’s and *UNSAVED* people’s minds). And if a person or child has a favorite TV or movie character, they can quickly become *subconsciously OBSESSED* with said character……..and…….over time, began to EMPATHIZE with the character (and if the subconscious obsession creeps up deeply enough), even start to BECOME like the “character”. And if the character takes drugs……..well……it’s really NO WONDER there’s such a “drug epidemic” here in America and also in today’s global world. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/heroin-use-in-u-s-reaches-alarming-20-year-high/

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/12/17/drug-overdose-deaths-increased-by-33-percent-in-past-5-years.html

These movie and TV characters that are “regular and/or occasional” drug users/dealers? It’s PSYCHOLOGICAL PRE-CONDITIONING AT ITS MOST FINEST, folks! The Luciferian elite is TRYING to program people’s brains to think that pot is OK, cocaine is OK, heroin is OK (or, at the VERY least, “not that bad” and can “easily be overcome”). But then, people in real life find out just how TRULY ADDICTING the stuff is. And by then, their physical body and their whole life is “seemingly” ruined.

I hear liberals ALL THE TIME try to say that the media does NOT effect people. If that were so, then tell me WHY there’s SO MANY people on Youtube and other video-sharing sites doing PARODIES/IMPRESSIONS of MOVIES/TV SHOWS/OTHER PEOPLE. Or, just look at how many people just DROOL and OBSESS OVER and IDOLIZE famous celebrities and SCREAM IN EXCITEMENT at the mere SITE of that person/those people walking down the street/etc. Because hey, the “media/entertainment industry doesn’t effect people at all (mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally speaking), right?” Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

No, a movie or TV show (in and of itself) doesn’t DIRECTLY cause a person to use/experiment with drugs. However, to many, it serves as what I call the “CURIOSITY GATEWAY”. That’s how it all gets started. They get CURIOUS: “Does this drug or that drug REALLY give you an incredible high, like that one TV character had in that show?”, followed by “is this drug REALLY as harmful as experts SAY it is?” And sadly, some even think to themselves: Hey! I want to try this drug that this one TV character does. It looks FUN! And then it all goes from there.

People (as a whole) like to (and even tend to) emulate what they see on movies and TV. It’s a skewed reality, folks! The general American public is led to believe that WHAT they see on all these degraded/sinful TV shows/movies is NORMAL when in all actuality, it’s the OUTLIER. Trust me, not every 4th or 5th person of every single family is using drugs. But that’s what some of these “drug-using” TV shows would have people try to believe.

But again, what lies at the HEART of drug addiction (be in TV format, movies, OR in real-life)? The answer is SIN! One thing I actually LIKE about the show LOST is that it actually attempts (although somewhat vaguely) to show drug use as it REALLY is: SIN! None of the other TV shows I’ve seen featuring drug use had EVER done that (to my knowledge). So atleast ONE show out there attempts to tell the TRUTH about drug use; not only that it’s SIN but that it’s DAMAGING and DESTROYS PEOPLE’S LIVES!

All the others? Especially the last one I mentioned on my list up above? Seems like they’re all just justifying it and making excuses. Now…….if they were to show drug use in a TRULY BAD LIGHT and showed each character getting some sort of HELP/MOTIVATION overcoming their addictions, (which the show LOST also did, btw), then that would certainly be ONE thing. But if they’re attempting to show drug use in a GOOD LIGHT or a ‘LEGITIMATE LIGHT” (“drugs are good, drugs are fun, he/she has legitimate reason to use drugsit pays to use/deal drugs”), then they’ve done every single American (as well as global human soul) a SERIOUS DISSERVICE!

Ya know, I keep hoping that somebody out there will come up with a Christian TV series that attempts to show sin for what it REALLY is (Sin) and that shows that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to be FORGIVEN and SET FREE from “Sin”, ESPECIALLY a Christian-themed show (similar to LOST) that attempts to show drug use for what it REALLY is (SIN – sin that DESTROYS lives and DESTROYS families!) Because maybe, just maybe, if more TV shows and movies attempted to show drugs in a TRUE LIGHT, there would be FAR less glamorization of it and FAR less “curiosity attempts”.

What this American society and global world needs is a TV show that SHOWS THE TRUE FACES OF DRUG USE (people “coked out” on crack, heroin, meth). The show Drugs Inc. (while it does show people’s struggles from time to time), I think it actually does the unintended OPPOSITE (glamorize drug use to the millennials, etc.). Seeing the EMACIATED FACES/BODIES OF LONG-TERM DRUG USE would be a HIGHLY effective anti-drug campaign. But again, like I said, it’s not really a state problem, a nation problem or even a POLITICAL problem, it is a SIN PROBLEM!

Believe it or not, DEMONS are behind drug use. Just like they are ALSO behind the “idea” FOR TV shows/movies which FEATURE drug use in a “positive light” [Think Breaking Bad, for instance]. Demons rob a person’s SOUL! But in fact, that is their “spiritual job” to do so; to try to take as much LIFE out of a person’s soul that they possibly can! Because the more LIFE they can take out of a person’s soul, the better chance they have of PERMANENTLY overcoming that person’s soul. In fact, the SECULAR world doesn’t call it “overcoming one’s demons” for NOTHING. Think about it, folks! WHERE do you think that saying actually comes from!?

Many people who experience drug use oftentimes describe “demonic encounters”. WHY do you think that is, folks? Do you think it’s just MERE COINCIDENCE? THINK AGAIN!!!!!!

Drugs and Crime (especially crime RELATED to drugs) are actually a SIN PROBLEM, and not so much a SOCIETAL PROBLEM (although that too, for what it’s worth). So UNTIL America (and the world) has dealt with drug use as a SIN PROBLEM, I can’t forsee the “drug problem” going away anytime soon!

And what’s scary to me about the media/entertainment industry (as a whole) is that it’s starting to create this “Alternative Reality”. The lines between fantasy and reality are becoming BLURRED. In today’s “liberal world”, biological gender is no longer biological gender but is based on FEELINGS. That’s really scary, folks. I wonder what biology textbooks will look like in 10 years: “There IS no gender” and/or “Gender is not determined until the age of 5. Brain determines gender, NOT biological anatomy”.

But again…….the way this society is going (on a global scale), it probably won’t be too much longer now before ALL drugs become “legal” and likely even ENCOURAGED among many on the the liberal left. Think back how, 10 years ago, the word “transgender” didn’t even exist. Now it’s everywhere and a person is just a “racist bigot” if they DON’T “accept transgender ideology”.

The SAME exact approach is likely going to happen with drugs/drug use. In about 10 years time (if not much sooner), drugs will likely become legal and any person that despises drugs/doesn’t use them/has negative viewpoints towards them will be seen as “totally backwards”.

The TV shows WEEDS, Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy pretty much started a “mini-movement” within the TV industry to “glamorize drug use” and many TV shows followed. DOES ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE FIND THIS FACT DISTURBING AT ALL? EVEN JUST A LITTLE?

In fact, my heart just FEARS for the types of movies and TV shows that are coming next. HOW MANY MORE TV SHOWS AND MOVIES WILL HAVE TO FEATURE DRUG USE IN A POSITIVE LIGHT BEFORE PEOPLE START NOTICING (IF AT ALL) AND BOYCOTTING THE TV SHOWS, AS A RESULT?

The problem is that NOT only is drug use a SIN, but that MANY CHRISTIANS out there are NOT standing up AGAINST movies and TV shows such as that! Which is WHY many of those “drug-glorifying” movies and TV shows like that are ABLE to PROLIFERATE in today’s mass media!

You (dear readers of this blog) might not be part of the PROBLEM of drug use in the media, but you can certainly be part of the SOLUTION! We ALL need to band and pray together that all of these ungodly TV shows will LOSE their appeal on the masses and also that there will be a GREAT spiritual awakening of people that HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS and that REALIZE that there’s a HECK of alot more to life than “Sin” (sinful practices such as drug use, etc.)

And no matter WHAT side of the “drug war” you’re on (rather you’re a soul that’s currently addicted to drugs, are adamantly anti-drug, deal drugs, advocate their use in the media, etc.), I pray that Jesus Christ will abhold you, HEAL you from within and SET YOU FREE FROM YOUR SIN(S)! For HE is the ONLY thing in this universe that satisfies! HE is the ONLY way to Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins! And HE is the ONLY being in the universe with the power of Life and Death in his hands!

John 3:16 [Book of John, Chapter 3, Verse 16 in the New Testament] PROCLAIMS: “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whomever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”.

What Beauty & “The Beast” TRULY Represents!

There’s most recently been a MAJOR controversy concerning the “most current” film adaptation of The Beauty & The Beast “fairytale”. The director, who’s openly homosexual HIMSELF, decided he wanted to include a “exclusively gay moment” in the film. This, in turn, has had MANY Christian parents threatening to boycott the film and/or Disney, in and of itself.

However, I have to SERIOUSLY WONDER why ANY Christian parent would take their kids and/or themselves to see the film to begin with, “gay moment” or not…….Because folks………it’s ALL in the TITLE of the movie, itself! Think about what the NAME truly IMPLIES: Beauty & THE BEAST! (SATAN? BESTIALITY, anyone?)

It’s a thing of mind control. If you call it “Beauty AND The Beast”, that subconsciously implies that “the Beast” is BEAUTIFUL! THE BEAST! The book of Revelation describes THE BEAST as A DEVIL! A godless being that DEMANDS WORSHIP! A Satanic being that’ll someday DEMAND that ALL men, women and children take HIS MARK in order to be able to buy and sell.

But in fact, I most recently saw a “Christian” article that whined about how “The Beast” IN the “Beauty & Beast” fairytale story EVOLVED from a “loveable-looking creature” TO Baphomet with horns! But what *I* am desperately trying to tell ALL Christians today (ESPECIALLY parents) is that “The Beast” has secretly represented Baphomet ALL ALONG and it’s just that many people didn’t realize it! 

Think about it, folks! Truly think about it. What is NORMAL about a young woman “dating and/or marrying” A BEAST? Anything? If a young female in today’s world all of a sudden decided she wanted to “date” or “marry” an actual living RAM (with horns), what would the majority of humans say? They’d say she was mentally sick and deranged! But hey……put that into a “fairytale format” and it’s A-OK in today’s godless world, right folks?

But in fact, the Beauty & The Beast “fairytale” is nothing more than an attempt to make “bestiality” seem “cute” and “cuddly” the same way that the movie called “Ted” tries to make SIN itself seem “cute and cuddly”, with the image of a TALKING TEDDY BEAR (the teddy bear ofcourse being one of the most INNOCENT of symbols in today’s world, especially among children!)

How and why is it that many Christians have never noticed this before? It boggles the mind! Even just the name “The Beast” IN AND OF ITSELF should send colloquial shivers down a Christian’s spine! 

Folks, we live in such an EVIL WORLD, today! We’ve been BOMBARDED with images of evil. We (as a whole) have become SO desensitized to sin/evil/evil themes that we Christians hardly even recognize it anymore! (Just think of how many CHRISTIANS watch the show called AMERICAN IDOL, being totally OBLIVIOUS to the word IDOL and what it TRULY implies! The 2nd commandment CONDEMNS IDOLS/IDOLATRY!)

They’re not even trying to hide it anymore, folks! They’re now OPEN and BLATANT about it (TV shows like Lucifer, for example). The Satanic elite now KNOWS that many Christian people are onto them so now they don’t care. They’re just putting it out there now, all out in the open, trying to bank on the fact that IF they show enough evil in today’s TV, movie and entertainment programming, that sooner or later, nearly ALL Christian souls out there will become SO desensitized to it, that they won’t even fully recognize it anymore!

YES, I’M CALLING ON ALL CHRISTIANS TO BOYCOTT THE FILM “BEAUTY & THE BEAST”. NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE “GAY THING” BUT BECAUSE BESTIALITY (EVEN IN ANIMATED FORM) IS AN ABOMINATION UNTO ALMIGHTY GOD! WE MUST RECOGNIZE EVIL WHEN WE SEE IT AND TELL OTHERS SO THAT THEY RECOGNIZE IT, TOO! WE MUST ***NOT***, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BECOME DESENSITIZED IN **ANY** WAY, SHAPE OR FORM TO EVIL….BECAUSE THAT’S JUST WHAT THEY (THOSE LIVING IN DARKNESS AND ADVOCATING *FOR* DARKNESS/EVIL) WANT

Beware: The “Disguised” Devil in Plain Site!

Many Catholics (and even non-Catholics alike) just LOVE Pope Francis and think he’s “the greatest thing since sliced bread”. But what MANY people don’t realize (specifically, many Christians, Jews and Catholics themselves), is that MANY, MANY things he says and does actually goes AGAINST the bible and AGAINST Jesus Christ! Don’t believe me? Lets examine many of the PERSONAL QUOTES/BELIEFS of Pope Francis (Papa Francesco):

  • “‘Reading Genesis we imagine that God is ‘a wizard with a magic wand’ capable of doing all things, he said. ‘But it is not so. He created life and let each creature develop according to the natural laws [Evolution] which he had given each one.’”

  • [The Catholic Church no longer teaches creationism – the belief that God created the world in six days – and says that the account in the book of Genesis is an allegory for the way God created the world]
  • “Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”
  • “Since many of you do not belong to the Catholic Church and others are non-believers, from the bottom of my heart I give this silent blessing to each and every one of you, respecting the conscience of each one of you but knowing that each one of you is a child of God.”
  • “From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”
  • “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge? We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.” [Note: I’m pretty sure he’s talking about those actually LIVING the lifestyle, not those “celebate” ones who struggle with same-sex attraction but still desperately want a spiritual relationship with Christ!] 
  • “A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important than the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.”
  • “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
  • “Christians who avoid taking risks out of concern for the Ten Commandments as suffering from “cowardliness,” warning that such people become “paralyzed” and unable to “go forward
  • PLUS MANY, MORE MORE!!!!!!!! 

Now tell me, people…….If the Roman Catholic POPE (in this particular case, Francis) believes and practices things that go AGAINST the bible, then what does that say about the Roman Catholic Church’s theology/practices, in and of ITSELF? Again, lets examine the evidence…..lets examine what the Roman Catholic Church (and its theology/beliefs/practices) has to say about ITSELF:

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify“

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: “If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church“

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: “Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority“.

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950): “Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope”

Louis Gaston Segur, Plain Talk about the Protestantism of To-Day (London: Thomas Richardson and Son, 1874): 213: “Thus the observance of Sunday by the Protestants is a homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the (Catholic) Church”.

The Catholic Mirror (September 23, 1893): ”The Catholic Church, for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday…The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who can find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first. Hence their appellation, “Seventh-day Adventists.”

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): “The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary: “The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God

But people, the point I want to make is THIS:

  1. The Roman Catholic Church (in and of itself – outside of its Fight for Pro-Life) is UNBIBLICAL
  2. Pope Francis’s “liberal theology” is UNBIBLICAL
  3. The Roman Catholic Church MIXES TRUTH WITH LIES (i.e. The Fight For Pro-Life Vs. “Bowing Down to Idols & Graven Images’, etc.)
  4. The Pope AGREES with the UNBIBLICAL “religions” of “climate change”, “ecumenicalism”, “evolution”, etc.
  5. The Pope will actually (unfortunately) HELP bring about the *reign* of the ANTICHRIST! 
  6. The Pope (& the Roman Catholic Church) are STILL persecuting the TRUE SAINTS of God (those who not only BELIEVE in the bible from Genesis to Revelation + 1611 KJV Apocrypha, but those who TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST *ALONE* AND THAT ADHERE TO the bible’s contents and warnings!)
  7. Pope Francis (who unfortunately himself is deceived, already) is/has been/will continue to SPIRITUALLY DECEIVE MANY
  8. There’s VERY good biblical evidence that the Roman Catholic Church (i.e. The Vatican) is the either the Whore and/or Beast System of Revelation! 

But remember: The Devil’s goal is to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY (lives, hearts, bodies, AND souls!) He doesn’t come with a hellish face, horns and a pitchfork, people! He comes IN DISGUISE! And what better disguise than RIGHT *INSIDE* THE CHURCH, RIGHT INSIDE THE *VATICAN ITSELF?* Think about it, folks!

When the Pope VERY FIRST “came into office”, sort’ve speak, he seemed very mild, likeable and down to Earth. All the Catholics everywhere (and even Christian themselves) seemed to love him! (But in the back of many liberal’s minds, they were hoping to, unfortunately, “use the Pope” for THEIR left-wing philosophy/causes!) And as time has wore on over the years, he’s actually BECOME more and more BOLD and UNBIBLICAL in his “stances” on issues such as “evolution”, “abortion”, “adultery”, etc. (Quite simply put, he’s been deceived by Satan and those on the left!) 

Now…….do I think the Pope is THE ANTICHRIST talked about in Revelation? Not exactly. Although I DO think there’s a very good biblical possibility that he could be THE FALSE PROPHET talked about in the book of Revelation! Because the bible says that’s EXACTLY what the FALSE PROPHET will do……LIE TO PEOPLE and make them THINK that what he’s saying/doing and thinking is BIBLICAL, when in actuality, it’s really NOT!

But the bible HINTS (in the book of Revelation in the New Testament) that both THE BEAST (Antichrist/Antichrist System) AND THE FALSE PROPHET will have SUCH power of persuasion that MANY UPON MANY will be DECEIVED! (ETERNALLY DECEIVED!)

In fact, just LOOK how many people today are ALREADY DECEIVED by “liberalism” into thinking that “homosexuality/sodomy/gay marriage/transgenderism”, “abortion”, “adultery”, “cohabiting and/or sex outside of or before marriage” is OK….When just a decade or so ago, it would’ve been UNTHINKABLE in most Christian people’s minds!

But in fact, a quote from George Orwell really gets me every time and that’s THIS: The people will believe what the media TELLS them they believe!

And The Pope & The Vatican are ALL OVER THE MEDIA! In fact, just like with Barack Obama, the media is having “quite the lovefest” with Pope Francis & The Vatican. I’m almost just as quick to blithely ask the liberal liberal media: “So….when’s *the WEDDING?*” (between they and the Pope/Vatican…..)

No, but in ALL seriousness…..one (rather liberal or not) can NOT deny the fact that the media is just DROOLING (as a collective whole) over Pope Francis & The Vatican! Seems like every other day I’m reading an article about Pope Francis this, or Vatican that, etc. Not to mention that I’ve ALSO taken notice of something: why are all the U.S. EVANGELICAL LEADERS (Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, etc.) and WORLD LEADERS meeting with the Pope? Why, INDEED? It kind’ve makes a person wonder, doesn’t it?

But then again, it should really come as NO SURPRISE since The Pope/The Vatican will have an INTEGRAL PART in the soon coming ONE WORLD ORDER! The Jesuit Vatican is where they will likely set up “headquarters” for the One World Gov’t, One World Religion and One World Economy…..or at the very least, the One World Religion part of it. WAKE UP, PEOPLE! The Jesuits (as a whole) are EVIL! They (as a whole) are Satan’s “henchmen” in disguise!

People of the world (as a whole — SPECIFICALLY Jews *and* Christians) have been SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP! People in today’s world (as a whole) are MUCH too worried about the latest music, movies or videogames than they are about world news events and how it ties in to bible prophecy! This stuff was prophesied in the bible over THOUSANDS of years ago (INCLUDING the fact that at the last days, there would be many scoffers and mockers) and yet, most people of today don’t even know that and/or don’t even care! SAD!

But I WILL say this: IF you are a member of the Roman Catholic and/or Catholic Church, don’t just walk away from it, RUN! RUN FOR YOUR DEAR SOUL’S LIFE, WHILE THERE’S STILL TIME! Because believe me, ON Jesus Christ’s Day of Judgement (The TRUE/BIBLICAL/”JEWISH” JESUS CHRIST and NOT the false, Paganized one taught in churches today)……WHEN you stand before Him, The Almighty God, maker of the heavens and the Earth……..

The very LAST thing you’d EVER want THE BIBLICAL “JEWISH” JESUS CHRIST asking YOU, The “Catholic”, is something along the lines of why you never read the bible (front to back) for yourself, to see rather or not the “Catholic churches’s teachings” are/were so and also why you (as a “practicing Catholic”) repeatedly broke the 2nd and 4th commandments (which are NOT to bow down to any idols or graven images and to remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy — respectively), amongst other things. 

Now……we know from Genesis that the TRUE, BIBLICAL SABBATH is the 7th day of the week, which is SATURDAY!!!!! Because remember……The Lord created the Earth and the heavens in 6 days and RESTED ON AND SANCTIFIED THE 7TH DAY (SATURDAY) AS A “DAY OF REST”. And so for MORTAL MAN to “change the Sabbath” and claim that God HIMSELF changed it is (either knowingly or unknowingly) committing BLASPHEMY against Almighty God! 

But folks: Rather you’re an “ex-Catholic” that’s ALREADY gotten out of the Catholic Church or you’re a Christian/Jew that KNOWS the Roman Catholic Church is NOT biblical, we need to PRAY for ALL Catholics….(INCLUDING Pope Francis and all Vatican officials)……We need to pray that the Lord Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ) will soon open up their hearts, souls and minds to HIS gospel and not the FALSE, Paganized gospel taught in the churches today! Because remember that you yourself were once an “uninformed” and “restless/unsaved” soul, correct? What if no-one had ever taken the time, prayers or efforts to enlighten YOU? How would YOU feel? 

Hint: DON’T READ THE NEWER BIBLE TRANSLATIONS (NKJV, NIV, NSRV) FOR THEY HAVE BEEN PERVERTED! ONLY READ THE 1611 KJV + APOCRYPHA as the Lord Jesus Christ ADMONISHES (that means SEVERELY JUDGES) anyone who ADDS/REMOVES words from the bible (as Revelation 22:18-19 states!)

Islam: The Silent Takeover of America (And the World):

It all started out so small. Right after 9/11, all Muslims here in the U.S. were immediately “demonized” for being Muslim and didn’t feel “welcome” in this country. But even WAY BEFORE 9/11, the “Silent” Muslim Infiltration of America had been happening ALL ALONG, since about 1960 or so, it’s just that most Americans never realized it. 

Think of the famous boxer Muhammad Ali, for instance. Most Americans never even thought about what the name truly implied (that he was Muslim). Just like most Americans have never thought (long-term) about just what Muslims here in America & in the Western world (long-term) REALLY MEANS……

[For example……whenever they build a “mosque” or “Islamic center”, they do it as a sign of “conquer/conquering”. Surah 18:21 of the Qu’ran more or less states: “let us surely build a place of worship over them”].  

But anyways……not long after 9/11, maybe like, 6 months later or so, there began this LIBERAL movement called “lets-pity-the-Muslims-in-this-country-instead-of-truly vetting-them. Nevermind-they-come-from-a-religion-that-wants-to-blow-people (and/or themselves)-up-and-behead-people”. In other words, there came to be this “Great Divide” between Americans who DIDN’T trust any Muslims after 9/11, and those that WANTED to “try to understand Muslims” after 9/11. 

But anyways…..if there were ever any doubt in one’s mind about the “SILENT INFILTRATION OF ISLAM HERE IN AMERICA & BEYOND“, look no further than the following 100 headlines, as they give a good indication into what the LONG-TERM PLAN/GOAL of Muslims here in America (and in the world) is (as a WHOLE):

http://www.dailywire.com/news/11410/complete-list-radical-islamic-terror-attacks-us-james-barrett#

But folks: Rather you’re an “ex-Muslim” that’s ALREADY gotten out of Islam/The Muslim religion or you’re a Christian/Jew that KNOWS Islam is NOT biblical, we need to PRAY for ALL MUSLIMS (even the “jihadi ones”, I dare say)…….Because there’s not ONE single soul on the face on this planet that DOESN’T need Eternal Salvation in Jesus Christ’s name, right? 

We need to DILIGENTLY PRAY that the Lord Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ) will soon open up their hearts, souls and minds to HIS true gospel and not the FALSE “Paganized Christian” gospel that was falsely taught to them since they were children/babies!

Because remember that you yourselves (BEFORE you got truly “spiritually saved” in the name of Jesus Christ) were once an “uninformed” and “unsaved/restless/perishing” soul, correct? What if no-one had ever taken the time, prayers or efforts to enlighten YOU, in the name of Jesus Christ? How would YOU feel?

Plus we also got to remember that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE IN THE LORD’S HEAVENLY NAME! There is NOTHING outside his power! NOTHING! 😉 He can take the most vile, hateful “persecutor of Christians” (Saul) and then turn them into a WITNESS for his great, heavenly name (renamed Paul!) Remember? 

On the other hand…….if YOU (a believer in Jesus Christ Almighty), are EVER in a situation where a Muslim or group of Muslims (or ANY group for that matter) tries to get you to DENY CHRIST (for ANY reason), DO NOT DENY JESUS CHRIST! STAND YOUR GROUND! BE PREPARED TO DIE AND/OR BE TORCHURED FOR YOUR FAITH, IF YOU HAVE TO! SHOW OR FEEL NO FEAR! FOR THERE *IS* NO FEAR FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRULY IN CHRIST JESUS! (Think Daniel in the Lions Den in the Old Testament and Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Hot, Fiery Furnace – also in the Old Testament). And remember: “Those who stand for nothing fall for anything”. 

The Case For Christ: Weighing The Historical AND Spiritual Evidence

As many of you readers here on my blog know, I had a MOST POWERFUL near-death experience when I was around 2 years old. I had NO previous knowledge of Jesus prior to that experience. It’s how I came to know Him and what “happened” to him (when he let me view the holes in his hands and by his feet and even allowed me to gingerly poke my finger through one of his hands). It’s also how I came to know that he was ONE powerful being whose voice/laughter/etc. had the ability to shake the Earth & the waters and also how he would one day be in charge of “eternally judging people”, etc. It’s also the first time I heard about “Heaven”, etc.

You can read about it HERE: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2010/11/17/the-day-i-met-jesus-christ-in-person/

But my whole entire life, I’ve even felt somewhat “guilty” that I myself got to experience meeting Jesus Christ in such a POWERFUL and DRAMATIC way, while others have not. It’s like the living EPITOME of when Jesus says to the disciple Thomas in John 20:29 [New Testament, Book of John, Chapter 20, Verse 29] “Jesus saith unto him, ‘Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed

In other words, I began to feel like (over the years) Well OFCOURSE I believe in Jesus, I’ve seen him! I saw him descend down out of the clouds of heaven! I’ve gingerly poked through the hole in one of his hands with one of my fingers! But what about those who HAVEN’T seen? Will THEY ever get a chance to believe?“, I wondered throughout the years. Because MY near-death experience (to a non-believer especially) sounds dramatic, sensational, even made-up sounding, even. In fact, I’ve had many (even a few that were close to me) laugh and scoff and say to me: “Oh yeah? You’re just making that up for ATTENTION! You just had some sort of HALLUCINATION due to oxygen deprivation to the brain (which really, really hurt me by the way, cause Jesus ain’t no liar!)

Anyways, I even found myself arguing with the Christ deniers in my life that are close to me. I looked one of them square in the eye and asked the fateful question: “So…..if my near-death experience never so-called happened, ARE YOU CALLING JESUS CHRIST A LIAR? ARE YOU CALLING JESUS CHRIST A LIAR KNOWING FULL WELL THAT IF YOU DON’T REPENT OF THAT BEFORE YOU DIE IN THIS EARTHLY LIFE THAT YOU’LL GO TO HELL/LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY **FOR** CALLING HIM A LIAR? I’D REPENT IF I WERE YOU!”

And like a 2-edged spiritual sword, you could see the fear in their SOUL and in their eyes! I then followed it with: “As **religious** as I am, [for nearly all non-believers in my life coin the term “religious” to mean anything from following A religion to having a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ] do you think I’d be caught dead lying about a powerful, almighty God that has the power to cast MY soul into hell/the lake of fire? Why would I risk my livelihood, and life’s reputation on something that wasn’t true?

Furthermore, if you think I’m lying to gain converts for Christ, why would I have to lie to do it? And why would I WANT to lie to do it? What would be the point in MY lying to get Christ converts, with THEM going to heaven and ME going to hell/the lake of fire? There’d BE no point in that, right?” It was then that that non-believing relative was at a mere lost for words……and then tried to go into another spiel about “how could such a *loving* God send people to hell?”, etc.

Which goes into my next point. Those that are not in Christ Jesus HATE/ARE INDIFFERENT TO the truth and the truth SEEMS like “hate”/”indifference” to those who HATE/ARE INDIFFERENT TO the truth (which is Jesus Christ Almighty HIMSELF). In John 14:6, Jesus says: “….I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. So in other words, Jesus is saying there in that passage that He IS “The Truth”. And so therefore, ANYONE who denies HIM denies THE ETERNAL TRUTH OF GOD!

I then got to thinking. What IS the hope for all the non-believers in my life? Is there ANY hope for them to ever find (TRULY FIND) the eternal truth that can ONLY be found in Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE? It was then that I REALLY started to cry out to Jesus in prayer for a solution…..

I said to the Lord in prayer:Lord, if you could just gather ALL the HISTORICAL and SPIRITUAL AND/OR SCIENTIFIC evidence for Jesus Christ, and put it all into ONE book (besides the bible and IN ADDITION TO THE BIBLE), maybe some of these “secular” non-believers in the world, people of other religions and wayward Christians will FINALLY receive THE TRUTH the way that you had originally intended! Please Lord, please…..Oh….and it would help if that person was a Journalist — especially a Journalist that was once an Atheist!

Well, needless to say, I soon came across the following book:

the-case-for-christ

And the Lord had answered my prayer to a T! NOT only was the author a Journalist (just like I asked for in my prayer) but he had ALSO started out as an Atheist (another caveat of my prayer). You can’t make this stuff up, folks!!!! Only, the thing is, this particular book came out YEARS AGO (and I didn’t even know it! haha). Therefore, the Lord Jesus answered my prayer by bringing the book to the forefront! 

And wouldn’t  ya know? I’d been FERVENTLY praying for the past year or so that THAT book would be turned into a MOVIE! And guess what, folks? 

And HERE, you can watch the author, Lee Strobel, talk about some of the evidences he found while doing his “historical investigation of Christ”:

And HERE, you can watch the Documentary:

But one thing is certain. At the end of his historical and journalistic investigation, Mr. Strobel found that, given the OVERWHELMING HISTORICAL AND SPIRITUAL EVIDENCE, IT WOULD TAKE **FAR** MORE FAITH FOR HIM TO REMAIN AN ATHEIST THAN TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN/BELIEVER IN CHRIST! 

Such a profound statement. I hope and pray that the book, documentary AND big-screen movie will open up MANY hearts and souls to the ETERNAL TRUTH OF SALVATION FOUND **ONLY** IN JESUS CHRIST AND JESUS CHRIST, ALONE! And I praise Jesus HIGHLY for having answered my prayer and hope even still that Jesus Christ will still use many, MANY avenues to still continue capturing hearts, minds and souls in his great, heavenly name! Amen. 

“Ghosts” or DEMONS IN DISGUISE?

We as a society are seemingly OBSESSED with “ghosts” and the “paranormal”….

In fact, here’s a most recent 2017 news story illustrating this fact:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ghosts-haunt-palace-says-swedish-queen-155413476.html

From TV shows like “Supernatural” to “Ghost Adventures” to movies like “Ghostbusters”, “The 6th Sense”, “The Conjuring”, and to “psychic readings”, “tarot cards”, “ouija boards” and “seances”, people seem to be obsessed with the idea of ghosts/communicating with the dead (which the bible calls AN ABOMINATION, by the way!)

But just what DRIVES us, AS a society, (and maybe even as a WORLD) to be seemingly OBSESSED with such things? And biblically speaking, is it possible that “ghosts” are actually DEMONS IN DISGUISE?

Let us turn to the bible for the answer:

2 Corinthians 11:14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil

1 Samuel 28:13-15The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up out of the earth.” He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and did homage. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and God has departed from me and no longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do.”

Note: Saul started off GOOD, with a true, HUMBLED heart for the Lord! But…..over time, God’s “favor” began to go to Saul’s head a little bit and he became “distant” and “arrogantly self-assured”, thinking that he didn’t NEED God anymore! And in ALOT of ways, our current U.S. and global society is now currently PERSONIFIED in Saul’s “fall from grace”, where, as a VERY last result, he saught out a MEDIUM (something that the bible CLEARLY PROHIBITS) to try to consort with the SO-CALLED dead spirit of “Samuel”.

We — as a nation — USED to be likened onto a “King David”, who was a man after God’s own heart. But NOW — as a world and as a nation — we have become like a rapidly spiritually deteriorating KING SAUL — who have fallen from grace and who has become a victim of DECEIVING SPIRITS, WHO ARE MASQUERADING AS ANGELS OF LIGHT!

And just WHAT does the bible, if anything, actually SAY about “ghosts/spirits”, in general? Well, we know from the following passage that when a person “dies”, they DO NOT come back (save ofcourse for Jesus Christ Almighty, who ROSE FROM THE DEAD, and also a couple instances in the bible where Jesus actually RAISED somebody from the dead — ie Lazarus, etc.):

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” – Genesis 3:19

In fact, according to http://biblereasons.com/ghosts/, 22 bible passages that PROVE that “ghosts” ARE “demonic spirits” is the following:

[[[‘You can’t talk to the dead. The dead can’t come back from the dead. Once a person dies, they either go to Heaven or Hell. You don’t have an option to be a ghost and haunt someone’s house and I will show you from Scripture’.

1. Job 7:9-10 “As a cloud fades away and vanishes, so the one who goes down to Sheol will never rise again. He will never return to his house; his hometown will no longer remember him”

2. 2 Corinthians 5:8-9 says: “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him”

3. Hebrews 9:27 states: “And just as it is destined that men die only once, and after that comes judgment”

4. Matthew 25:46 proclaims: “These people will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life”

5. Ecclesiastes 12:7 says: “then man’s dust will go back to the earth, returning to what it was, and the spirit will return to the God who gave it”

We always hear about those stories that have to do with hauntings. People come back for revenge to claim their house, but what does Scripture say?

6. Psalm 146:4 states: “For his spirit goes out and he returns to his earth and in that day all his thoughts are destroyed”

7. Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 says: “For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.  Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun”

Another name for Satan is the deceiver.

He seeks to deceive as many people as he can and of course demons do the same thing. You may hear about people going to phychics and talking to dead family member, but once again those are just demons impersonating the deceased and deceiving people.

All the different ghostly activities, ghost stories, haunted mansions, etc. are all the work of demons. Watch out for people like ghost hunters who try to profit off of this.

8. 2 Corinthians 2:11 “I have done this so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes”

9. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions”

10. John 10:10 A “thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance”

11. Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil”

There are some people that might say didn’t Saul talk to Samuel’s ghost?

Notice that the figure did not come from Heaven. It came from out of the earth. Notice that the figure was not joyful and notice that Saul’s face was down. Scripture teaches that the dead can’t come back.

12. 1 Samuel 28:13-15 ‘The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up out of the earth.” He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and did homage. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and God has departed from me and no longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do”

There are evil spirits/fallen angels in this world.

13. Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him”

14. Matthew 10:1 “And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction”

You don’t have to be afraid because they can’t harm Christians as we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us. Believers are protected.

15. 1 John 4:4 “You are from God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”

16. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 “And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee

17. 1 John 5:18 “We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him”

But that does not mean we are free to indulge in demonic activity such as black magic. We are not to seek evil. It is a sin and it will harm you. 

18. James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”

19. Ephesians 4:27 “and do not give the devil an opportunity”

20. Leviticus 19:31 “Do not turn to mediums or consult spiritists, or you will be defiled by them; I am Yahweh your God”

21. Deuteronomy 18:10-11 “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer”

Jesus did not believe in ghosts.

22. Luke 24:37-39 “They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have”]]]

The truth is, Satan knows just about everything about us. And because HE knows almost every single about us, SO DO HIS DEMONS! Therefore, the demons KNOW all about our hobbies and family members and dead family members, etc. I’ve even seen a Lifetime movie back in the day where a young mother had a 3-year old? son that died. And a “demon” was appearing to the woman IN THE FORM OF the child’s “ghost”, telling her to do things like: “kill yourself mommy, so we can be together”. DEMONS *PRETENDING TO BE GHOSTS* ARE VERY, VERY EVIL, YOU SEE? I can’t think of the name of that movie. Maybe some of the readers of this blog have seen that movie and know which one I’m talking about….? 

But anyways, the next time you “think” you hear or see a “ghost”, BEWARE! Demons are EVERYWHERE these days! It’s not even POSSIBLE, biblically speaking, for a person’s “soul” after they die, to be trapped/caught between heaven and hell. The bible says so! And ONLY praying in the name of Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, not the fake Paganized one taught in watered=down churches today) can DELIVER a person from them! (Ofcourse, there is the HOLY SPIRIT/Spirit of God, as well as “righteous angels” but those are TOTALLYD DIFFERENT from the “ghosts” that people “think” they talk to!)

Demons are EVEN in today’s popular music, movies and TV shows! This isn’t a joke! Don’t believe me? Watch the following clip and then try to TELL me demons aren’t real (bet you can’t):
