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!

The TRUTH About Modern Day “Secular Therapy”, ETC.

Modern day “secular therapy” has us go to “psychiatrists” and “psychologists”. Many secular “experts” tell us that our “depression” and “anxiety” and “behavioral disorders” (especially in young children and teens) are caused by a “chemical imbalance of the brain” and that “medication” + “secular talk therapy” is the ONLY means by which to be “healed”. But is that RIGHT? Is it BIBLICALLY sound and ACCURATE? Or is it just one of MANY “secular lies” that are meant to once again HIDE US FROM THE COMPLETE 100% TRUTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD/JESUS? Let us examine.

When going to Amazon one day to search for some Christian end times resources, the Lord Jesus IMMEDIATELY compelled me to suddenly look at the actual user reviews for an ungodly book called: “The Satanic Bible”. And I said outloud in shock: “JESUS, ARE YOU FOR REAL ON THAT? YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!”

But instead, the sad but calm/firm answer I got back from him was THIS: “Look at what they SAY…..the people who UPHOLD that ungodly book, that is…..it will help give you a really good insight into HOW the enemy deceives and the EXACT POINTS in people’s lives WHERE he’s deceiving them AT. You might just be surprised!”

And so, after spending some time in prayer and with much trepidation, I headed on over to see the user reviews! And MAN, WAS MY SOUL **GRIEVED** AND SADDENED, as I poured over the user reviews to try to figure out just WHAT these poor, deceived folks found so “enticing” about “Satan/Satanism”. I felt like my soul was about to vomit!

Nevertheless, ONE particular user review STOOD OUT AT ME! In fact, it was ONE sentence in particular IN that review that really JUMPED RIGHT OUT AT ME!

………”IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PSYCHOLOGY, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED, HOW CLOSE MANY ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK ARE TO WHAT THERAPISTS TEACH THEIR CLIENTS TO **IMPROVE THEIR LIVES!**…….”

Now, WOW…..that quote is QUITE TELLING, isn’t it, folks? But yet, it actually makes sense. Modern day “secular therapy” and all the colleges and universities (UNLESS it’s born-again CHRISTIAN therapists/psychiatrists) are all teaching a thing called “self-actualization”.

Basically, that means the promotion of SELF! Or in other popular lingo, it means “Do You”, “be the person YOU want to be”, “follow YOUR dreams/desires”, etc., REGARDLESS of what Jesus thinks! In other words, put YOUR own needs above the needs of any and all others (especially Jesus!)

Lets say you want to start a business, etc. Great! But is the Lord Jesus in on it? Do YOU have the Lord Jesus’s approval AND backing for said business, etc.? Because if you DON’T, that’s placing your own wants/needs/desires before Jesus’s will/desire for your life! And placing ourselves BEFORE Jesus in our “life dreams” or “plans” is actually indirectly DENYING the cross of Jesus (rather we like it or admit it or not) and making OURSELVES our “own god!” It’s true! 

And thus, placing our OWN needs ahead of the will of Jesus is, ofcourse, a form of “idolatry” (making ourselves “our own god”), which is COMPLETELY CONTRADICTORY to the words of Jesus Christ himself who in Luke 9:23 said: “…..If any man will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS *DAILY*, and follow me“. Now…….what does it mean to “take up one’s cross DAILY?”, some of you might be wondering. “Is Jesus talking about a LITERAL CROSS or what?” 

Well, first of all, think of what all Jesus had to endure ON the cross (i.e. excruciating PAIN, sorrow, mocking, ridicule, laughter, being spat on, having a crown of thorns placed on his head, being stabbed in his side with a spear, his hands and feet NAILED to the cross, etc.)

In other words, he had to suffer excruciating pain for OUR benefit (i.e. becoming the ATONEMENT for all of the sins of mankind). Therefore……what does it mean when WE “bear our cross” DAILY for Jesus? It means bearing our personal “CROSSES OF AFFLICTION” FOR the sake of Jesus and his gospel!

And no two people’s “crosses of affliction” are alike! Now…..IS this a LITERAL cross we must nail ourselves to everyday? No, ofcourse not! It is a spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and psychological cross of “spiritual affliction” that we must pick up and carry with us each and every single day of our lives! So for example, ONE person’s “daily cross of affliction” may be struggles with spiritual persecution for being a Christian, while ANOTHER person’s “daily cross of affliction” might be a struggle with a perpetual sin that they’re attempting to overcome (i.e. alcoholism, lust, same sex attraction, etc.)

And EACH and every single day, each person must spiritually FIGHT that “cross” of spiritual affliction and OVERCOME that “cross of affliction”, if that makes any sense? So in other words, the person that suffers the “cross of spiritual persecution” must ENDURE that spiritual persecution and KEEP THE FAITH, each and every single day, NO MATTER WHAT! And the person struggling with the “cross of affliction” of alcoholism/same-sex attraction/etc. must FIGHT the temptations OF that “sin” (i.e. that “cross of affliction”) each and every single day of their lives! That’s what Jesus means when he says to “….take up his cross daily, and follow me” [reference: Luke 9:23]

Therefore, “self-actualization” and/or worship of SELF does absolutely NOTHING for Jesus or his gospel! In fact, those two ungodly practices actually cause us to DENY our “daily cross of affliction” and to DENY Jesus and his gospel! So think about that for a bit! 

Now….why does Jesus want us to DENY OURSELVES for him in this Earthly life? Think about what Jesus HIMSELF denied for US! When He came to the Earth as a newborn infant, he DENIED himself his divinity and RICHES! (True, he had the “rich gifts” from the 3 wise men…….but he was born into a POOR FAMILY!) He wasn’t even born in a proper inn but in a barn-type stable! Now think about that……..truly think about that for a minute! His whole entire earthly life, he was POOR!

For the 3 some years of his ministry on the Earth, he was a NOMAD! And though he performed miracles, etc., he STILL denied himself of his FULL divinity! And when he was tried and persecuted and nailed to the cross, he CONTINUED to deny himself his full divinity!

In fact, he denied himself EVERYTHING for US! He sacrificed HIMSELF completely for the forgiveness of OUR sins! He then gained victory over death, hell and the grave! He later ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father! THE UNIVERSE HAS KNOWN NO GREATER LOVE THAN THE LOVE THAT JESUS HAD **FOR MANKIND** WHEN HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS FOR FORGIVENESS OF MANKIND’S SINS!!! (NOTE: PLEASE READ JOHN 3:16).

Therefore, Jesus denied himself for US! Which is why WE NOW, must deny ourselves, in turn, for HIM and His everlasting gospel! Because we are to be likened onto HIM! For mankind was made in his image! (It says that in Genesis 1:27!) So in other words, we are to try to live our lives as much like Christ as possible. We should strive to serve others before ourselves. We should be slow to anger, quick to forgive, patient, loving, kind. We should honor and follow the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, etc.

Now, we’re all human, and we’re all going to fall short of the mark of righteousness sometimes. This is recorded in Romans 3:23 which states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.

So in other words, nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. However, that shouldn’t give us a free license to sin! Some of today’s Christian therapists might mean well on the surface. But if they’re not born again or if they’re lukewarm or a “leftist liberal” that supports such things such as LGBT and abortion, it’s time for you to seek a NEW Christian therapist!

But then again, it begs of question: Why do we humans keep going to other people and the internet to try to solve our problems when we should instead be going to JESUS HIMSELF to solve all our problems? Isn’t JESUS HIMSELF the ULTIMATE HEALER? And doesn’t JESUS HIMSELF have all the answers to the questions or problems that we seek solutions for?

Didn’t JESUS HIMSELF create the universe and the heavens? So how then is he going to scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR problems? Answer: he won’t! Because doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens with just the MERE SOUND OF HIS VOICE (i.e. “let there be light”), that he certainly knows what he’s doing in OUR everyday lives (rather we know it or realize it or not?)

Another aspect I forgot to mention is “demonic influences” (i.e. Ephesians 6:12). They are MUCH more powerful and active than we think! Even just ONE alcoholic drink, ONE ungodly movie, ONE ungodly music song, ONE un-prescribed painkiller, ONE ungodly book (i.e. Harry Potter), ONE ungodly object in our homes such as Ouija board/tarot cards/carved idol could be enough to invite SEVERAL DEMONS into our hearts, homes, minds and SOULS!

So it’s really NO WONDER the majority of Americans today (as well as several people around the world) feel depressed, anxious, restless, unfulfilled, never happy, etc. It’s because of all the “demonic influences” that people have let into their lives! That’s the REAL reason for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc.! BUT SECULAR THERAPISTS WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT!

They’ll lie to you (many being “spiritually lost” themselves) and will say it’s because of a “chemical imbalance in the brain”. Okay, question, who or what CAUSED that so-called “chemical imbalance” in the FIRST PLACE? Any clues? Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY wasn’t Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS angels that did that!

And the fact that SATAN/DEMONS are responsible for ALL cases of restlessness/anxiety/SEVERE DEPRESSION……it almost sounds somewhat “odd”, “crazy” or “sensational” on the surface, doesn’t it? But yet, the demonic realm is REAL! Many famous movie stars have come out and ADMITTED they sold their soul to Satan and/or agreed to be *inhabited by demons* for money, fortune and fame! And they’re NOT kidding, folks! DEMONS ARE REAL! SATAN IS REAL! Don’t you DARE bet your soul otherwise!

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

Ofcourse, don’t get me started on how the bible constantly uses the words “he”, “him” and “his”. Because in nearly all of those cases, Jesus means females as well. If the bible translators were gonna be very technical about it, they could’ve written “he/she”, “his/hers”, “him/her”, etc.

However, in light of today’s modern day “gender confusion” among the extreme LEFT here in America, I believe Jesus PURPOSELY had them translate the words AS “he”, “him” and “his” in order to avoid any future confusion that might’ve been caused with the modern day “transgender movement”. Because we have to remember that Jesus is an all-powerful, all-knowing God. He knew way ahead of time about the “transgender madness” that would soon take place in this fallen world!

I believe ANOTHER reason the bible tends towards male adjectives is because A) Jesus himself is MALE and all the prophets of Old (save for Anna and Deborah) were MALE! In other words, the message between the lines (all throughout the scriptures) is that modern day men (and women) need to be likened onto the prophets of God that (for the most part) did NOT rebel against God, in other words.

In other words, the whole of scripture is warning us NOT to commit the same ultimate sin that Adam and Eve did. Because IF we do {and in OUR modern day times, taking the Mark of the Beast is what I literally see as partaking of the modern-day version of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil}, the consequence won’t just be physical death but ETERNAL DEATH/CONDEMNATION as well. The reason that Adam & Eve “got off so easy” on their MAJOR TRANSGRESSION is because they were the VERY FIRST humans. They “almost” didn’t know any better.

But yet, MODERN DAY humans? We’ve had nearly 4,000? + years or more of human history, plus the scriptures and scriptural examples, not to mention the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross! Therefore, while Adam & Eve were forgiven for their “original sin” of partaking of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil (even though they were still temporally punished with “physical death” later, as a consequence of their actions), WE (i.e. modern day humans) will be WITHOUT EXCUSE (and be ETERNALLY PUNISHED BY JESUS) if WE partake of OUR modern-day version of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (i.e. The Mark of the Beast!) 

But going back to the modern day field of “psychiatry”. It “diagnosis” things and then “prescribes medication”. And the pharmaceutical industry is a HUGE part of it! They’re CONSTANTLY developing new “drugs” for things such as “depression”, “anxiety”, etc. They FUND studies that attempt to show the so-called “effectiveness” of their “new drugs”. And sadly, those “studies” seem to have very little oversight by the FDA, from what I’ve noticed.

So when you got this multi-BILLION dollar INDUSTRY that makes its money off of people being “sick” and/or “full of depression/anxiety”, you begin to understand how and why all these “meds” are over-prescribed and under-studied! Just follow the $$$$ signs! They don’t make their money by people getting better, folks! They make their money off of people being “sick” and “unhealthy!” Think about it, now! I really hate to say that but it’s the truth! Big Pharma is ONLY out to make money! And “secular therapists” (for the most part anyways, as a whole) are too, for that matter! It’s only the TRULY born-again Christian therapists who aren’t out to make money but to SAVE SOULS!

Also: Drugs meant to treat “depression” and “anxiety” are considered “mind-altering drugs”. But honestly. How is that any different from “psychedelics?” Both of them “alter the mind”, it’s just that one is “legal”, while the other is not. Do we REALLY want or need to put ANY form of “mind-altering drugs” into our system? Even the ones that are “legal?” Think about that long and hard, folks! (Please note: I’m not talking about medications that are used to break fevers or colds or that sort of thing. I’m ONLY talking about mind-altering medications!!!!!!!) 

In fact, I’ve even seen cases where certain anti-depressants (and even some sleep medications) actually INCREASED feelings of depression and anxiety and CAUSED a person (especially a teen or young child) to feel suicidal! As in, making the person BECOME what the medication itself was originally supposed to CURE/TREAT! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE, FOLKS? That should be a HUGE red flag, people! Who or what is behind Big Pharma? Any guesses folks? Cause it sure as heck ain’t Jesus or his righteous angels!!!!!!!!! 

One word that keeps coming back to me over and over again is the word “pharmakeia”. Something about the word just perpetually HAUNTS MY SOUL (for some reason) and I don’t know why! But according to the following website: https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Lexicon.show/ID/G5331/pharmakeia.htm, the word is a Greek word which means (in retrospect) “pharmacy” or “medicine”. It could also mean “sorcery” or “witchcraft”.

But again, it stands to reason! Just HOW MANY diseases, headaches and ailments (such as depression, epilepsy, anxiety) are actually caused by DEMONIC SPIRITS? Probably more than we think! Jesus was able to cure people INSTANTLY! In most cases, he placed his hand on them and they were healed. Which makes perfect sense. At the mere sight of Jesus, demons TREMBLE! (“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” – James 2:19).

But in TODAY’S WORLD, people are turning to MEDICINE (in and of itself) for all of their mental, emotional and physical ailments, INSTEAD of turning to Jesus Christ himself, whom they SHOULD be turning to! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Today, we live in a such a “pill popping society”. “Oh, you got THIS? Take a pill” seems to be the prime societal attitude. Many people (even myself included, at times) are FORGETTING the fact that Jesus isn’t JUST Almighty God in the flesh, isn’t JUST the “atoning saviour” of ALL of mankind (those who choose to believe in and OBEY HIM, that is), but he’s also THE HEALER! For just how many times do we read about Jesus HEALING PEOPLE *INSTANTLY* in the New Testament? Answer: SEVERAL!

But again, lets us go back to the Lord’s Prayer. When the disciples were on the Mount of Olives with Jesus, they not only asked him about the signs of the end of times (i.e. the end of the age) but they also asked him about the proper way to “pray”. And Jesus’s response was THIS:

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen“. Matthew 6:6-13 {Note: Please remember that the very last lines of “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” were ADDED WORDS and the Lord’s DIRE WARNING to us about “adding words” in Revelation 22:18-19! That’s something we should all take VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!)} 

Okay, now zero in on the words THY WILL BE DONE. What does that imply? It implies that WE (like Jesus) should be seeking the Heavenly Father’s will (DAILY), instead of our OWN WILL! Because when Satan rebelled against the Heavenly Father in Heaven, he wanted HIS will to be done, INSTEAD of the Heavenly Father’s will (which ofcourse, in effect, was likened onto making himself his “own god” – IDOLATRY!) 

So that’s where you get all of this Secular “Do YOU” and “Do What Thou Wilt” stuff. Because Satan (whose angry and knows he has but a short time – as per Revelation 12:12) wants to try to conform all of mankind to HIS ungodly image (Note: Please remember from Genesis 1:27 that we – biologically-born males and females) are made in the image of God and Satan HATES the image of God and thus, desperately wants to THWART IT!) So instead of focusing on the words in the Lord’s Prayer called “THY WILL be done”, Satan is more focused on MY WILL be done”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

We’re SO concerned with what WE think, how WE feel, what WE want out of life (or even out of romantic love). Very, very few of us are concerned with what God the Heavenly Father wants or what Jesus wants! We’re ethnocentric, and egocentric! We think it’s all about US! “What should *I* buy on Amazon today? Where do *I* want to live, someday? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What about how *I* feel about such n’ such? What do *I* want out of life?”, etc. “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I!” However, there’s just one problem with that. Jesus is 99.9% of the time NOT in the picture OF those “thoughts” and “plans!” Kind’ve sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks? 

Group therapy can be effective, yes. It’s always GOOD to know that we’re not the only ones going through something. However…..if Jesus Christ himself is NOT the center of that “group therapy”, then just what good will it do, in the long run? Think about it. 

However, organizations like AA and/or “12 step programs” (for the most part) have a Christian backing. Because think about it. Lets say, just for theoretical example, that the atheists were right and there was no God, etc. Well, WHAT then, would be the prime motivator for a person to stop drinking, etc.? If we were “all that there is”, purely theoretically speaking, then there would truly be no motivator to quit drinking (outside of friends and family, and even THAT would likely be “iffy”, in secular settings and with secular/nihilistic viewpoints). 

However, BECAUSE Jesus exists, there IS a powerful motivator for an alcoholic to stop drinking (outside of friends, coworkers and family). Secular group “talk therapy” would be the same way. If we were “all that there is”, people would just meet like-minded people who would then become depressed TOGETHER, instead of getting better. Therefore, it’s only *born-again* CHRISTIAN group “talk therapy” that will help a person TRULY get better (not just physically but spiritually/emotionally/mentally, too). Secular group therapy only makes a person better up to a certain point. Do you see what I mean by this, folks?

Satan and “demonic spirits” are the ones causing people to drink, causing people to feel depressed and inadequate, causing people to have heartburn and anxiety, and causing people to “become addicted to opioids”.  That’s the BAD NEWS! However, the GOOD NEWS is that BECAUSE those things are caused by demonic spirits, Jesus Christ is ready, willing and ABLE to spiritually and physically deliver a person FROM those ungodly spirits, as soon as a person cries out to Jesus in prayer and TRULY BELIEVES! 

Though, like I said, demonic spirits need a “legal spiritual doorway” by which to enter! So again, I ask: What kind of music are you listening to? What kind of TV shows or movies are you watching? What kinds of video games are you playing? What kinds of friends or people are you keeping company with? What kinds of objects or “thoughts” are you letting into your car, home, workplace? What kinds of “words” or “thoughts” are you MEDITATING ON

I just saw this video earlier today that claimed that “words are energy“. It’s well-worth the watch! And remember, we must SPEAK Christ’s words over ourselves DAILY! The words of Christ HAVE POWER

So that being said, have you felt depressed, stressed, full of anxiety over the present or future, etc? Turn to Jesus today IN PRAYER! Have the FAITH that he will HEAL YOU and then he will HEAL YOU! 

Speak OUTLOUD the following words and phrases (and TRULY BELIEVE THEM) in order to GIVE THEM POWER:

1). “Spirit of Depression, I demand you to DEPART, in the name of Jesus!”

2). “Spirit of Anxiety/Heartburn/etc., I demand you to LEAVE, in the name of Jesus!”

3). “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5

4). “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

5). “And they OVERCAME HIM [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” – Revelation 12:11

6). “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – John 10:28

7). “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” – Revelation 20:10

 

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!

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”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What The Bible TRULY Says About The Earth, Etc.!!!! [Warning: Truly mind-blowing!!!!!]

For our WHOLE ENTIRE LIVES, we were told by “scientists”, “teachers”, “governments”, and the global “mass media” that the Earth is a “spinning ball”, at a 23.5° tilt, suspended in the middle of the space, orbiting AROUND the sun!

Just like we were also told about “The Big Bang”, “Evolutionary theory”, the theory of “gravity”, that we went to the moon, that we have several “satellites” in space, that we’re soon putting people on Mars, etc.

But just how TRUE are all these things that we’ve been taught our entire lives? IS there ANY true scientific OR biblical evidence for such things? And if NOT, how is it that those “views” have become SO prominent in today’s world? Let us examine!

Even as a small child, I always struggled with the idea of The Earth being a “round ball”. In fact, I wondered how all that ocean water could stay afloat IF the Earth were “round”. In fact, I reasoned, how is it that all that water wouldn’t just FALL off the edges or evaporate? Was I missing something?

I’m pretty sure I asked my 2nd? grade teacher that very question and was more or less told that the ocean was “curved”. And after my 2nd? grade teacher told me that, I (oddly enough) never questioned it again for many, many, many YEARS!

When I was about 19-21, I discovered a few “flat Earth models” among my late grandfather’s office stuff. Granted, they weren’t anything like the fancy flat Earth models that you see today, complete with the snow globe-type dome and all. They were just simple models made out of 310gsm paper (the same type of paper that “playing cards” are printed on).  

And I thought it was sort’ve strange at the time. I didn’t yet understand or comprehend what I was seeing. I was taught my whole life that the Earth was “round” but yet, there, right among my late grandfather’s things were paper “flat Earth models”. And one of these paper models apparently even calculated the “trajectory” of the sun over the flat Earth! 

I even remember him saying to me around the age of 9 that the Earth was flat and that it was a “secret” and that I wasn’t supposed to tell anybody (especially my teachers at school) that the Earth was flat. But at the time, I just thought he was a “crazy old man”. I didn’t know any better!

But what originally got me started most recently on “The Quest of Flat Earth Research” was one of my coworkers most recently talking about her view about “Flat Earthers”. That immediately got my attention! I had to see WHAT they believed and WHY. So I did some Youtube research and was ASTOUNDED at what I had found. I’ll admit, I ALREADY did alot of Youtube research over many OTHER conspiracy theories (9-11, etc.)

Therefore, this was the latest conspiracy theory I just HAD to look into – ESPECIALLY if biblical truth was at stake! And what I found absolutely SHOCKED ME TO MY CORE! (Turns out my late grandfather wasn’t so crazy, afterall! The man actually knew what he was talking about!)

After I saw the following “Flat Earth documentary”, my late grandfather’s “flat Earth belief and/or models” FINALLY made sense to me! As did many OTHER things!

ORWELL QUOTE

Lets face it, most people today believe in a “round Earth” because they’ve been TOLD to believe it by “scientists”. But yet, if we look at it from a truly scientific perspective, we KNOW that water does NOT curve: it is UNIFORM! Repeat: Water does NOT curve!

But yet, did you know that there’s over 200+ passages in the bible that support a FLAT EARTH? It’s true! (The Earth PREDATES the sun!)

https://www.flatearthdoctrine.com/flat-earth-scriptures/

I have personally researched through ALL of them (each and every one) and can tell you that they are biblically solid & sound!

Also: Here are 7 random irrefutable facts concerning the flat Earth:

1). Level Water – Water ALWAYS seeks its own level. Therefore, water is NOT CURVED!

2). Level Horizon – The Horizon is ALWAYS visible, no matter the altitude!

3). Aircraft NEVER accounts for the “motion” or “curvature” of the Earth in its navigations!

4). Railroad tracks & bridges – Whenever a railroad track or bridge is constructed, NONE of it EVER accounts for any “curvature” of the Earth, even when built over water!

5). Weather balloons & Submarines – They NEVER account for the “motion/curvature” of the Earth in their official navigations!

6). Gravity (“Theory”) – https://ncse.com/library-resource/gravity-its-only-theory

7). The Earth PREDATES the Sun – Therefore, Earth does NOT revolve around the sun and thus, we are NOT “tilted” 23.5°!!!!!!!!!!!!

8). A “flat plain”, of ANY variety, can NOT exist on a “curved ball!”

9). It’s called sea LEVEL and NOT Sea Curve!

***10).*** The Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge in China (one of the LONGEST if not THE longest bridge IN THE WORLD) CONFIRMED no curvature of the Earth recorded during its construction (102.4 miles long, constructed in June of 2011)!

Now here are the 200+ Flat Earth bible passages, in sequence:

The Earth is fixed, stable & established:

  • 1 Chronicles 16:30
  • Psalms 33: 8-10
  • Psalms 65: 5-10
  • Psalm 93: 1-2
  • Psalm 96: 9-10
  • Psalm 104:5
  • Psalm 119: 89-90
  • Zechariah 1:11
  • 2 Peter 3: 5-7
  • Isaiah 14:17?

  • Revelation 21:5

And folks, but not only that but the ENTIRE “theories” of “Evolution”, the “Big Bang” AND “gravity” RESTS ON on the secular viewpoint that the Earth is “round” and that it so-called “revolves around the sun!”

Because hey, if the Earth is “round” and the “seasons” are produced by Earth’s revolving around the sun, then that would mean that there is a “natural” reason for “seasons” and NOT a creator, that would mean that there is a “natural” (i.e. “secularly scientific”) reason for the creation and not a creator, that would mean that Genesis is so-called “false” [Genesis states the Earth PREDATES the Sun AND that animals were created SEPARATE from humans], that would mean that the “Big Bang” is “true” (i.e. “we’re all just here by so-called *chance/accident* without any true PURPOSE), that would mean that the theory of “gravity” (i.e. which would explain why water can so-called “stick” to a “curved Earth”) is true and so on and so forth! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

“Now why……just WHY on Earth would they DO THAT?” some of you might be wondering. “Why they LIE to all of us like that?” But let me just give you the simple reason: BECAUSE THEY WANT TO *HIDE GOD* AND THE *TRUTH* ABOUT THE *VALIDITY* OF GOD’S WRITTEN WORD (I.E. THE BIBLE – VERY SPECIFICALLY THE BOOK OF GENESIS) FROM *ALL HUMAN PEOPLE!*

The “progressive elite” today are really no different than the “elite” of Jesus’s time! And JUST like the “elite” of Jesus’s day (oddly enough), they’re ALSO now addicted to the SAME EXACT FOUR things:

  1. Money
  2. Power
  3. Prestige among the masses
  4. COMPLETE CONTROL

This is precisely WHY the Pharisees of Old (as a whole) REJECTED Jesus Christ as the Messiah! Because they did NOT want to give up their POWER/PRESTIGE and TOTAL CONTROL over the Jewish people! Their “human greed” got the best of them! Just like the “human greed” is now getting “the best of” TODAY’S “elite!”

But the Jews that DID accept Jesus as the Messiah, back in the biblical day? They were PERSECUTED by “the elite” of their day! Just like many Jesus-professing Christians/Jews today (as a whole) are “persecuted” by TODAY’S “elite” and their “operatives” (both demonic and human!) And I hate to say this but “progressives/liberals” (as a whole) ARE part of “the operatives” of the “elite” (the “modern day Jesus-denying Pharisees – whom are of Satan! How and why? Because they go against nearly EVERY single biblical principle/commandment!)

And the REASON the “elite” is SO successful in deceiving the people (at large) is BECAUSE they have Satan’s backing! And they THEMSELVES are deceived by Satan into doing his ungodly bidding! Therefore, they’ve become the REAL-LIFE EPITOME of Matthew 15:14 which states: “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch and of 2 Timothy 3:13 which states, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived“.

So therefore, (for them, anyway), why cover up the FACT of the “Flat Earth?” Because it PROVES the VALIDITY of God’s Written Word (i.e. The Bible) FROM Genesis to Revelation! [And just as a side note, how many of YOU either do NOT believe in the LITERAL creation account of Genesis or know of someone – specifically a CHRISTIAN – that does not believe in the LITERAL creation account of Genesis? The FALSE “round Earth theory” is to blame! MARK MY WORDS!]

But see, that’s just the problem with much of “humanity” today. People (as a whole) just believe things BLINDLY, instead of doing the actual research for themselves! They think that doctors, lawyers, politicians, scientists, Harvard or Yale-educated people would never “lie” to them!

But yet, what many people do NOT realize is that the “elite” (as a whole) don’t even REALIZE that they themselves have been deceived by Satan his demons! That’s what Jesus was talking about: the “blind leading the blind”. The “elite” are spiritually blind, no doubt about it! And BECAUSE they are “blind”, they are making the most of humanity “spiritually blind”, right along WITH them!

I might not have ever said this on previous blog posts but I WILL adamantly say it on THIS one: EVERYTHING YOU WERE TOLD FROM A BABY AND ON? ESPECIALLY “Secular Materials” and “So-called *Theories* that were taught in textbooks from grade school and on? ****QUESTION EVERYTHING!**** And do all the research while you still can!

Heck, even a couple of lines from part of a song I heard awhile ago sounded off a weird “End Times warning” to humanity: “They’re gonna erase the truth. 70% will die. The New World Order has a plan for you………To make you NUMB”.

“A plan to make you NUMB”…..NUMB to God’s Word (Jesus Christ), one’s own emotions/free-will thinking AND of God’s Written Word (The Bible and the Bible’s TRUTH?) It REALLY sounds as though a God-fearing person (or angel?) slipped those lines in there for people to sit up and take notice!

I guess it just goes to show ya just how DESPERATE Jesus and the angels are to WARN PEOPLE of the coming New World Order DANGER(S)……..considering that it was an actual metal song that I heard the lyrics in! Or could it have just been a song that was truly MOCKING Christians who’re concerned about the New World Order? The world may never know. But yet, the lyrics are still there! 

And if memory holds correct, I saw part of that song on a Youtube video that discussed how “weird” it was that those lyrics seemed to be trying to “warn people” instead of “deceiving people” (which ofcourse is Satan’s usual “modus operandi – mode of operation). Satan loves to DECEIVE…..And yet….that song seemed to be trying to WARN PEOPLE.…….Strange, indeed……

And while the song could possibly be “mocking”, like I said above, I just don’t think so. There’s also another line in there that says: “I’m sitting up here, looking down at you……and watching what you’ve BECOME and I believe it’s talking about humanity there, as a whole (not ONLY in the “last days” of human history but throughout history ever SINCE the crucifixion etc. of Jesus). Very weird…..yet also very telling! 

But going back to the flat Earth thing. Many Christians today believe it’s not that important what the shape of the Earth is! But what I’ve most recently discovered is that the shape of the Earth is of UTMOST IMPORTANCE! Why? Because the Flat Earth truth proves the VALIDITY of the bible, from start to finish!

So what does the Flat Earth look like, according to the bible? Many flat Earth truthers have interpreted it like THIS:

FLAT EARTH MODEL

But in fact, the Flat Earth belief has been around for QUITE SOME TIME! Many world religions even believe in a flat Earth, believe it or not! And THEIR depictions are as follows:

flat earth among nations

And last but not least, here are some questions for “thought”:

  1. If we “so-called” came from apes, why are apes still here? Wouldn’t they have all technically “evolved” or died out if they “didn’t” evolve? Think about it!
  2. If the Earth was “round”, why doesn’t water ever curve?
  3. If we “so-called” went to the moon, how come we’ve never gone back?
  4. If the pictures of The Earth and “space” are REAL, why do they ALL look computer-generated or photo-shopped? And thus more, why has a top guy DISCLOSED the fact that all the images are indeed PHOTO-SHOPPED? 
  5. If most ALL ancient civilizations believed the Earth was flat, and the bible proves the Earth was flat, why are the “progressive elite” (as a whole) STILL trying to promote a ROUND EARTH? 
  6. Why do people BLINDLY BELIEVE whatever the media and “secular science” TELLS them to believe? How come they NEVER investigate things for THEMSELVES?
  7. If the Earth is indeed FLAT (and I assure you it IS), isn’t that one of THE MOST significant PROOFS of Genesis and the 100% VALIDITY of the bible, all throughout? 

Hopefully I’ve given you some things to CRITICALLY EXAMINE within your minds, hearts, bodies & souls! And remember, there aren’t any “tricks” or “gimmicks” at this End Times ministry, therefore, I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to gain from all of this other than YOUR spiritual eyes being opened to the 100% **VALID TRUTH** OF GOD’S WRITTEN WORD (THE BIBLE!) 

But see folks, that’s one of the MAJOR problems of Christianity today! We’re told WHAT to believe, but we’re not ever told (as a whole) WHY we believe what we believe, “scientifically speaking” (which is EXACTLY what this post has now attempted to do!)

I hope that you will open up your eyes and realize that “secular science” has LIED to you this entire time, that the NASA program is FAKE & is attempting to take you AWAY from God’s Truth and also that THE BIBLE IS OUR **ONLY SOURCE** OF RELIABLE “SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION” AND ALL OTHER “SCIENCE” IS A **LIE** FROM THE PITS OF HELL!!!!! 

But in fact, the very next time (as well as each and EVERY single time) you see a “so-called” picture from moon, the Earth, outer space, “Mars”, the “International Space Station”, and/or see YET ANOTHER news article that claims the Earth is MILLIONS of years old or “Such n’ such proves Evolution” and the like, I want you to do a mental/verbal exercise for me. I want you to say outloud in a very loud but determined God-glorifying voice: GET BEHIND ME, SATAN! I WILL **NO LONGER** BELIEVE YOUR SECULAR LIES!” 

“God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged” – Romans 3:4

P.S.: Here’s yet ANOTHER interesting video I’ve found on Youtube, this one detailing an experiment where snow “wouldn’t melt”. CREEPY! But again just proves my point about how “they” – the “secular scientists” have been lying to us this whole entire time!!!!!!!!!

 

 

2018 Altar Dedication of 3rd Jewish Temple: Mark of The Beast, Part SIX

So it’s most recently come to my attention that the Jewish Sanhedrin (a tribunal of Jewish rabbis) are prepared to DEDICATE THE ALTAR of the 3RD JEWISH TEMPLE during THIS YEAR’S [2018] HANUKKAH! Not to mention that they ALSO plan to (if I’m understanding this correctly?) “abolish” the U.N. and replace it with an organization that’s centered around “Noahide laws!”

Source: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/117329/un-rejects-bible-noahide-laws-abortions/ which expressly states at the very end of the article: “The Sanhedrin is working with the leaders of several nations to establish a new international body based in Jerusalem on Biblical values that will replace the U.N.! REPLACE the U.N.? Are you KIDDING me? Folks, this has HUGE biblical/prophetic implications…….

Now……for those of you who are wondering: “Just WHAT are “Noahide laws” and just WHAT does that have to do with humanity?”, I’m glad you asked!

The “Noahide laws” are 7 laws or “principles” that are as follows:

1. Do not deny God
2. Do not blaspheme God
3. Do not murder
4. Do not engaged in “illicit” sexual relations
5. Do not steal
6. Do not eat from a live animal
7. Create legal system of justice

Now……just taking a mere “glance” at these 7 laws, most of them don’t seem so bad. HOWEVER……what they’re doing at their very CORE is adding and taking AWAY from the 10 commandments, which is EXPRESSLY forbidden in Revelation 22:18-19! In fact, these laws were “borrowed” from the 10 commandments, (which is Jesus’s ACTUAL LAW for humanity, by the way!)

“Yeah so, WHY is all this so important?”, some might protest. That’s because The Antichrist (the soon-coming one-world government leader) will USE the 3rd JEWISH TEMPLE for worship…….OF HIMSELF! He will also (at some point) demand every man, woman and child take HIS MARK in their right hands or their foreheads in order to be able to buy or sell. All whom REFUSE to take “The Mark” (i.e. born-again Christians, Anarchists, etc.) will be imprisoned, tortured and eventually put to death! (This was all FORETOLD in the bible thousands of years ago!)

And just WHY will those people who refuse his “one world government mark” be killed? Because the Mark is not so much about buying and selling as it’s about WORSHIP……worship of HIM – THE Antichrist – in PLACE OF Jesus Christ (if that makes any sense?) But again, people taking the Mark in their right hands or foreheads won’t be told it’s a Mark about “worship”, they will instead be told it’s an “Economic Mark” (as in, “Well, you’ll need this Mark in order to be able to continue your bank account, etc.”) Scary stuff, isn’t it, folks?

To the Muslims, he will claim to be Allah/the 12th Iman/the Madhi, to Catholics & Christians, he will FALSELY claim that he’s THE Jesus Christ of the bible, to the Mormons, he will claim to be Joseph Smith, to the Hindus, he will claim to be Brahma/Kali/Shiva, to the Native Americans, he will claim that he’s THE “Grandfather Spirit”, to Satanists he will claim that he’s Satan incarnate, to Wiccans he will claim that he’s Gaia/Minoah, and to everyone else on the planet, he will claim that he’s “God” and/or “the god of humanity”.

And here’s where things gets interesting. The bible says in Revelation 13:8 that ALL people (as in, ALL people of the EARTH) that do NOT put their faith, trust, love & obedience into Jesus Christ WILL be deceived by THE ANTICHRIST (the soon-coming if not already so one world government leader who will “appear to be the answer to all of humanity’s problems”).

Folks, he’s not gonna come with a pitch-folk and devil horns. He will “speak smooth words”, appear to know what he’s talking about, appear to be the answer to everyone’s problems, be a person of persuasion, etc. In fact, he will have “charming character”. Most of humanity will think he’s “God”, quite LITERALLY!

And one of THE REASONS he will be so deceptive is BECAUSE he will have THE ABILITY to perform FALSE MIRACLES (such as make fire come down from heaven!) Most of humanity will be enthralled by these “false miracles” and say within their hearts: “Only IF he were God could he do such great, mighty and miraculous things!” [But yet, what most people will NOT realize is that he, The Antichrist (the “god” people worship IN PLACE OF CHRIST) is in deed, A FALSE GOD and A FALSE MESSIAH who’s indwelt by the power of Satan!]

Now that I’ve told you what happens to people who do NOT take the Mark, now I’m going to tell you what ETERNALLY happens to people whom DO take “The Mark!” Revelation 14:11 gives us a pretty clear & “graphic” picture:

“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”.

Translation? If you choose to take The Mark, your life (and finances) might be preserved for time, times and half a time. But your soul will then burn in the LAKE OF FIRE for ETERNITY: forever & ever & ever & ever! Your soul will burn AS you’re being perpetually tormented IN the flames!

And UNLIKE in your living mortal life where you would be burned until you were consumed, in ETERNAL LIFE, things are much, much different. For in the lake of fire, the flesh will “perpetually burn”. PERPETUALLY. Like Revelation 14:11 says, the smoke of a person’s TORMENT will rise up forever and ever! OUCH! Who in their right mind would ever WANT that or would ever even want to “chance” having that? Just saying.

Okay, now back to my main point about the 3RD JEWISH TEMPLE. The Sanhedrin (the Jewish rabbi tribunal) are getting ready to DEDICATE the ALTAR of the temple! And folks, if you know ANYTHING about ancient Jewish history, you’d know that THE ALTAR is THE MOST, if not ONE of THE MOST important parts OF “the Temple”.

Therefore, it stands to reason: if they’re THAT much closer to dedicating the ALTAR of the 3rd temple, just HOW MUCH CLOSER is the Antichrist’s official “I am God” declaration FROM/IN/NEAR the 3rd Temple upon the whole of humanity? And furthermore, just HOW MUCH CLOSER is “The Mark of the Beast” (and/or The Mark of the Antichrist – the one world government leader) gonna be? And further yet still, just HOW MUCH CLOSER is The Abomination OF Desolation gonna be, talked about in the bible?

Therefore, you got TWO choices and Two Choices, ONLY! You can choose to worship Jesus Christ, THE Jesus Christ of the bible, OR you can choose to worship something/someone else IN PLACE OF CHRIST and then later pay the eternal “torment” of a price for it! The choice is up to you! But don’t say I didn’t warn you!

And if I had one last pleading spiritual message to you all, it would be THIS: Give your lives to Christ – the true BIBLICAL Jesus Christ! That’s the ONLY way to ensure that you will NOT be deceived by the FALSE MESSIAH known as “THE ANTICHRIST!” And remember, the true biblical Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation, and the ONLY way to “true” eternal life!

JOHN 3:16 says, “For God [the Heavenly Father] so loved the world [humanity], that He [the Heavenly Father] gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] should not perish [i.e.go to lake of fire] but have everlasting life [life eternal WITH Jesus] 

But again, the thing we must remember about the Jewish people is THIS: BECAUSE the Jews (as a whole) never accepted Jesus Christ as their one and only TRUE Messiah [over 330+ Messianic Prophecies from the Old Testament PROVE that Jesus Christ IS the one and only TRUE Jewish Messiah, as evidenced in the NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLMENT THEREOF – https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/], the Jews are STILL WAITING *FOR* their “Messiah” and thus, they will accept the ANTI-CHRIST as their one and only true “Jewish Messiah”. However, halfway into his “term”, The Anti-Christ will perform the “Abomination of Desolation” (which will likely be sacrificing a PIG in the temple) and the Jews will then KNOW then that the ANTICHRIST is NO MESSIAH and that ONLY Jesus Christ is their Messiah!

And now…….“Okay, very well, so WHY then did the Jews – as a whole – REJECT Jesus Christ as their one and only true Messiah?”, several people may be wondering. But in fact, several passages in the New Testament “hint” at the answer! And the picture, once reading those passages, becomes more clearer. The Jewish rabbis (at the time of Jesus on the Earth) were “in love with” the POWER they held over the Jewish people and/or the Jewish nation (as a whole) and they did NOT want to give that up for what “they” likely considered to be a “mere mortal human man”.

And not only that, but the “Messiah” that THEY were wanting and expecting was a “military revolutionary” who would give them (atleast in THEIR minds, anyway) a MILITARY victory over their enemies. And looking back through ancient Jewish history, I could sort’ve see why they may’ve been looking for a revolutionary…….because many of the great prophets of Old (David, Joshua, Gideon, etc.) were considered “revolutionaries”. So to THEM, it probably made perfect sense that their “Messiah” would ALSO likely be a revolutionary!

However, Jesus was NO mercenary! Instead, Jesus started a SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION! And those Jews who believed in him and obeyed him as the Messiah are today known as “Messianic Jews”. And those Jews who did NOT believe Jesus was God in the the flesh and/or the Messiah are today known as “Orthodox Jews”. [And to be fair, there’s probably a few sects of Judaism today that are “unsure” or “on the fence” about who Jesus is!]

But in fact, let me take it a step further: Orthodox Jews have today a set of religious “writings” known as The Talmud. “So what’s the Talmud?”, some might be wondering. I’m glad you asked! The Talmud is basically a collection of books………rabbinical “footnotes” and “interpretations” of the biblical law and of Jesus himself!

However, human men are “fallible” and they are not 100% righteous like Jesus IS! Therefore, their “interpretations” are ALSO “fallible”. That’s EXACTLY what is meant in Romans 3:4 which says, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”. And plus let us not also forget Proverbs 3:5-6 which declares, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”. 

In other words, don’t just base your biblical knowledge on what you FEEL or THINK, but rather on what Jesus HIMSELF says! Because “feelings” can be deceiving! So in other words, in a nutshell, the Talmud is basically the “thoughts” and “feelings” of the rabbis on what they THINK the laws of God should mean but is NOT the laws of God HIMSELF! If that makes any sense?

Because ONE rabbi might come along and say, “I think this law means THIS” and write that into “Talmudic writings” while YET ANOTHER rabbi could come along and say, “Yeah well, I think this law means THAT” and do the exact SAME! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? If Christians made a “book” such as “pastor ramblings”, that “book” wouldn’t get very far. So I can’t imagine why The Talmud (to most Jews today) is so prominent ABOVE the bible (in THEIR eyes!) The Talmud is actually soul-damning! I mean, it’s ONE thing if a Jew reads it as “an extra, extra biblical text, to be read with a grain of salt” but it’s quite ANOTHER thing to read it AS THOUGH IT WERE SCRIPTURE!

Here is one of Anita’s videos on the subject that may be better at explaining certain aspects of what I’m talking about:

BREAKING! Sanhedrin invites 70 Nations to Hanukkah dedication of altar for THIRD TEMPLE!

We have SO MANY SIGNS that we’re living in the Last Days that it’s not EVEN funny! Just HOW many more signs will certain “stubborn people” NEED in order to see that we’re living in the Last Days? Men dressed as women, reading to CHILDREN in schools AND in public libraries? Parents would’ve been protesting EN MASSE 20 years ago if that were ever to happen! But now, in the year 2018? Most parents don’t even bat an eyelash and WHY is that, do you think? Answer: WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS!!!!!!

But folks, it’s not JUST the altar dedication that’s taking place, in regards to the 3rd Temple. There’s ALSO the looming “peace deal” and OTHER factors such as the “red heifer being born”, all the temple vessels “becoming ready”, etc. All they’re waiting for is the “Green Light” and folks, it’s beginning to look like THE “Green Light” is JUST AROUND THE CORNER, only a few MERE weeks away! WOW! We’re here already, folks! We’re HERE! It won’t be 10, 20 years from now but NOW! So if THAT doesn’t motivate you to get your soul and your “houses” in order, then I don’t know what does! 

Folks, if you’ve been sitting on the fence about Jesus and salvation, SIT ON THE FENCE NO LONGER, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed! We never know when we’re going to die! I hope and PRAY that this blog and all its contents have taught you, encouraged you, enlightened you and given you SEVERAL biblical things to think about, in these here last days! I hope it has prepared you for what’s coming! Just like I hope it has RIPPED the spiritual blinders from your eyes and given you TRUE spiritual enlightenment in Jesus’s name! I’ve wrote passionately about Jesus and the End Times on this blog for a good 7-9 YEARS now and pray that this blog has been a blessing in you and your loved ones lives! I’m honestly not sure how many more days Jesus will give me but as long as I got breath in my lungs, I will CONTINUE to praise Him against all clamor & opposition! 

In conclusion, I just want to kindly remind you all to remember the case of Job (pronounced Yob) in the bible. He lost EVERYTHING in ONE day but instead of cursing God, he decided instead to PRAISE HIM! This is evidenced in Old Testament, Book of Job, Chapter 2, verse 10 which reads: “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips”. 

The back story is that Job’s wife told him he should quote/unquote “curse God and die”. What a TERRIBLE thing to say to one’s husband! OUCH! Yet, Job’s response to her (AND to God, as well as his own personal situation/hardship) is just BEYOND MIRACULOUS! In other words, Job is telling his wife that she is “foolish” for only wanting to receive the “good things” from God but not the “bad things”.

It appears that Job there had some spiritual wisdom that was somewhat similar to David’s or Solomon’s. Job seemed to have realized that “adversity” is a form of “testing” and also that “adversity” and “spiritual testing” is a chance for “spiritual growth” AND is also a “reminder” to us about how God is SOVEREIGN and does as HE wills, not as WE humans will! And yet, WHEN Job STILL praised God, NO MATTER WHAT, even IN adversity, God eventually BLESSED HIM and gave him back 10-fold what he had “lost” DURING the “adversity/spiritual testing!” 

Therefore, my parting words of wisdom to you are THIS: Praise Jesus 24/7, NO MATTER WHAT, OBEY HIM, and GET YOUR HOUSES IN ORDER! For like I’ve said in SEVERAL posts most recently, MARK OF THE BEAST IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER, IF NOT PRACTICALLY HERE, ALREADY! SO GET READY, FOLKS! THIS WILL BE ***THE MOST TRYING TIMES OF OUR LLIIVVEESSSS!***

“Heavenly Father, please make me, my loved ones, and ALL readers of this blog (rather subscribers or not) be ready for all that which is to come. Give us all the strength to ENDURE in these Last Days, NO MATTER WHAT! REMOVE all spiritual blinders from our eyes and give us all eyes to see and ears to hear what YOUR spirit has to say to “the church(es) in these Last Days! I say this in Jesus’s name, Amen”.
