IMPORTANT: The Torah Still Applies!!! (Part ONE)

Many people TODAY – both Christian AND non-Christian alike – take such a “liberal” view when it comes to God’s law in the Old Testament! They try telling themselves that they no longer have to follow the 10 commandments since “Jesus already payed for the law on the cross” and that The Old Testament “was for the Jews, ONLY!” But what does Jesus HIMSELF teach on the matter? Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

Many people don’t know this (and even I MYSELF didn’t know this until a couple years ago) but Jesus actually made SEVERAL appearances in the OLD TESTAMENT as a pre-incarnate. He was ALL THE FOLLOWING:

  • The “tree of life” in the Garden of Eden
  • The “pillar of cloud” by day and the “pillar of fire” by night that led Moses & the Israelites out of Egypt
  • The “mighty wind” that parted the Red Sea
  • The “burning bush not consumed” that spoke with Moses
  • The “foreign visitor” that talked to Abraham outside his tent as well as the “King of Salem” that BLESSED Abraham
  • The one that “fought with Jacob” all throughout the night
  • The “Son of Man” in the fiery furnace of Nebuchadnezzar with Daniel’s 3 friends
  • The one who “closed the mouths of lions” in the Lion’s Den with Daniel
  • The “angel of the Lord” besides Joshua at the battle of Jericho
  • The “Hand on the Wall” writing a decree of “Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin” against Belshazzar during Belshazzar’s “Babylonian-style” feast that used the golden & silver vessels from the TEMPLE in Jerusalem around 539B.C. or so?
  • Etc.?

Next, I’d like to examine SEVERAL bible passages concerning the ETERNAL NATURE OF JESUS/GOD:

Psalm 90:2

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Isaiah 40:28

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

Hebrews 13:18

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

1 Timothy 1:17

To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 8:58

Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.

2 Peter 3:8

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Titus 1:2

In hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised BEFORE the ages began.

1 Corinthians 2:7

But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.

Hebrews 1:8

But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Hebrews 1:2

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world;

Okay, now that we’ve established that God/Jesus is ETERNAL, what about his WORDS? His LAW? Are THEY eternal? Once again, let us examine the evidence:

Matthew 24:35

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words SHALL NOT pass away

Matthew 5:17-18

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till ALL be fulfilled

John 14:15

“If ye love me, keep my commandments

[*NOT TO MENTION THAT MATTHEW, CHAPTERS 5 TO 7, ALSO KNOWN AS THE “SERMON ON THE MOUNT” OR “THE OLIVIET DISCOURSE” EXPOUNDS ON THE 10 COMMANDMENTS AND TALKS ABOUT THEIR ORIGINAL *INTENT!*]

In Matthew 24:35, Jesus is telling us that his WORDS will LAST FOREVER! In Matthew 5:17-18, Jesus is telling us that he DID NOT come to destroy the law! And in John 14:15, Jesus is quoted as saying that IF we love him, to KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS! Therefore, that certainly doesn’t SEEM in any way, shape or form that Jesus wants us to NEGLECT the 10 commandments (or their original “intent”) under ANY circumstances!!!!! But rather, he seemed to want us to OBEY them!

Acts 10:34, Ephesians 6:9, and Romans 2:11 etc. all show us that Jesus is not a God of “partiality!” In other words, he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT Judge! So THAT being said, does it REALLY make any sense that God/Jesus would tell the Jewish people ONE thing/ONE set of commandments and then turn around and tell the Christians ANOTHER thing/ANOTHER set of commandments or NO commandments?

God/Jesus did NOT go to the Jews of Old Testament and tell them that THEY had to follow the 7th day Sabbath, the 7-8 Biblical Holidays and the BIBLICAL dietary laws and then turn around during the times of the New Testament and say to the Christians that they were free to do, celebrate and eat WHATEVER THEY WANTED! For if he did, A) He wouldn’t be God, and B) That wouldn’t be fair! And we KNOW from the scriptures that Jesus is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT JUDGE! Because if he wasn’t, he’d be a liar and JESUS CAN NOT LIE!

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

Therefore, if Jesus Christ is ETERNAL, and DOES NOT CHANGE, and said HIMSELF that he DID NOT come to destroy the law, we can safely conclude that neither has Jesus’s LAW ever changed, either! In fact, the Sermon on the Mount (talked about in Matthew chapters 5-7 in the New Testament) seemed to ENHANCE the biblical law!

From my best spiritual understanding, we are saved by grace through faith PLUS obedience! (John 14:15, Matthew 7:21-23, etc.) For if you have obedience WITHOUT faith, the obedience is in vain! And if you have faith WITHOUT obedience onto the Lord’s commandments, that’s also vain, too! But if you have FAITH + OBEDIENCE, then you have been truly “born again” by the spirit of God/Jesus Christ through GRACE!

However, there are still those who claim that Jesus’s quote in Matthew 26:26-28 during the last supper about “making a new covenant” means that we no longer have to REPENT (that means to “make amends” for/pray for forgiveness OF) sin! But if we go to the King James version, we have the word TESTAMENT instead of COVENANT. Every version from NEW King James Version and on translates the word as COVENANT. And both the words have slightly different meanings! A “covenant” is like a “marriage contract” for instance. But a “testament” is something that lasts forever!

The Authorized King James Version and King James Version are the most closest bible translations, as it pertains to the Hebrew and the Greek. The NEW King James Version and on distort MANY, MANY words and phrases [http://www.av1611.org/nkjv.html] And in fact, THE APOCRYPHA wasn’t even taken out of the King James Bible until the late 1800’s or so! [https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Apocrypha-Books/]

[IMPORTANT: As a side note, I have found these GREAT publications of the KJV that also INCLUDE the Apocrypha:

https://www.amazon.com/Holy-Bible-James-Version-Apocrypha/dp/1480007889/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=KJV+bible+%2B+apocrypha&qid=1578787315&sr=8-3

https://www.amazon.com/Cepher-3rd-2018-Revision-C3R1/dp/0692998047/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+cepher&qid=1578787888&sr=8-1

Many Christians today seem to want to “pick the best bible version that WORKS FOR THEM, the “best church that WORKS for them“, the “best denomination that WORKS FOR THEM“. In other words, they seem to asking the question: “What works BEST for ME?”, instead of asking the fateful question: “What does GOD/Jesus WANT/EXPECT from ME and FOR me, as it pertains to obedience and worship?” In other words, they’re not asking the fateful question: “Where does GOD/JESUS want ME right now?” 

But regardless, even when a person is in/currently attending the INCORRECT church, reading the TAINTED bible version(s), and in the WRONG DENOMINATION(S), Jesus can still use that experience to TEACH a person (by means of the Holy Spirit) what IS and what IS NOT the true gospel (provided that person has a TRUE HEART to want to know what is of God and what is NOT of God!)

Note: Jesus did that with ME, with both the Catholic and Mormon churches in the past and he can most certainly do that with OTHERS, as well! In other words, he might sometimes purposely PLACE a person in the WRONG CHURCH in order to teach them what the TRUE CHURCH *is*, if that makes any sense? Let me elaborate. When I was a “baby Christian” (after I had started reading the gospel for myself ALL THE WAY THROUGH around the ages of 19-21 or so), I still had NO IDEA what alot of the gospel meant by the ages of 23 on on. So I was “easy fodder” for both the Catholic and Mormon churches to “deceive me” at that time.

However, AFTER I prayed to the Lord Jesus for SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING and SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT, I once again read the King James Bible straight through, cover to cover and then gained a “newfound understanding” about what IS and what is NOT the gospel. And it wasn’t until about the age of 30 or so that I FINALLY began to see just how EVIL and WRONG and INACCURATE the Roman Catholic Church and “institutionalized Christianity” REALLY IS! And sadly, it wasn’t until the age of about 33 or so that I gained the FULL KNOWLEDGE that I have now that the “Judeo-Christian” path is the ONLY fully CORRECT bible interpretation and way of life!

From the outside looking in, it seems “harsh” or “narrow-minded” to say (in retrospect): “This is the ONLY fully correct bible interpretation and way of life”. But it’s true. I have not been able to find ONE error in the Judeo-Christian path so far, NOT ONE! And I am a MOST DILIGENT seeker of God’s Word (Jesus) and God’s Written Word (The Bible). The several scriptures that I’ve shared with you are to PROVE that we still need to honor the BIBLICAL SABBATH (the 7th Day) and the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, First-fruits, etc.!)

Also….please remember: The Roman Catholic Church and today’s “institutionalized church” write them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”. But they are NOT “Jewish holidays” only, they are BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS. And not only that, but they weren’t only for Jewish people and “biblical times”, they were meant for ALL of the Lord’s people, for ALL time! (Note: Did you know for example that Jesus will STILL have people celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles etc. during the New Millennium? It’s true! Read your bibles!)

That now being said, there’s a couple verses that I want us to now take a closer look at….

Colossians 2:16-17

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ

Acts 10:28

“And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean

Matthew 15:16-20

And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man”

Many Christians today want to interpret Peter’s vision of the animals on a sheet in Acts 10 as a sign that ALL FOOD IS CLEAN and OK to eat. HOWEVER…..Peter later understands the ANIMALS in the vision were used to represent PEOPLE (as in, different groups of PEOPLE). Therefore, that’s when Jesus showed Peter in a vision that ALL PEOPLE were meant to receive the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ and NOT JUST the Jews!!!!!

And in Matthew 15:16-20, the Pharisees were asking Jesus why he and his 12 disciples did not “ritually wash” their hands before eating, so Jesus was explaining to them WHY He and his disciples DID NOT have to ritually wash their hands before eating! In other words, He was emphasizing to the Pharisees that THE WORDS that come out of a man are what DEFILES a man and not HIS UNWASHED HANDS! Jesus never said diet wasn’t important, He just emphasized that more emphasis is placed on the WORDS of man, rather than his “ritual practices” before eating.

As for Colossians 2:16-17, Jesus is telling US (the Messianic Jews/Judeo-Christians) to not let ANY Christian/NON-Christian/NON-Judeo-Christian/NON-Messianic Jew judge US (the Judeo-Christian/Messianic Jew) *FOR* following the BIBLICAL 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday), the 7 BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) and the BIBLICAL dietary laws (NO PORK, SHELLFISH, ETC.) Make sense?

One does not have to go far to see all the “adversity” towards “Judeo-Christians/Messianic Jews” today. You’ll often hear things such as the following:

  • “We’re under a new covenant now, we no longer need to follow the Old Testament!”
  • “Well, those holidays are for Jews, only. What, you gonna convert to Judaism now or something?”
  • “But Peter was shown that ALL animals are clean for eating! I can eat pork and shellfish if I want to!”
  • “Uh! Quit telling me not to celebrate the Pagan Christian holidays! Who are YOU to judge ME? Tradition is tradition and so what! It doesn’t harm a person to follow Pagan Christian traditions! You’re splitting hairs on this, you’re such a Judaizer!” 
  • “Jesus has one set of laws for the Jews and one set of laws for the Christians. He judges each group by their OWN set of laws!”
  • “If you want to follow the “Jewish” laws and feasts, you should go to a synagogue!”
  • “You can’t be both “Jewish” AND Christian! You either need to be one or the other!”

Those are some of the most common arguments against “Messianic Judaism/Judeo-Christianity”. However, I’d like to examine a few more bible passages that explain how and why Jesus works on a “continuum”. He doesn’t start something without finishing it.

Philippians 1:6 states: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Here, the “day of Jesus Christ”, in my humble opinion, is talking about the 2nd arrival of Jesus upon the Earth in his holy, fully-glorified form. So in other words, the law and the work that was done in ancient Israel by Jesus Christ will be FULLY COMPLETED in the “New Israel”, if that makes any sense? Everything works on a “continuum” in the Kingdom of God. This is a passage that has a two-fold meaning.

On the one hand, it’s talking about the SPIRITUAL nation of Israel (as a WHOLE) ALL THROUGHOUT TIME and on another hand, it’s talking about each INDIVIDUAL person that comprises the SPIRITUAL NATION OF ISRAEL (if that makes any sense?) Because remember that not ALL physical Jews living in Israel at the time of Jesus embraced God’s Laws and God’s Messiah (Jesus).

Those ones were considered “children of Israel” in name ONLY but NOT in SPIRIT! (Remember the various Old Testament passages where it said “the children of Israel once again turned to idols/idolatry”, etc.?) And I want to be VERY CLEAR on this as well: a Jewish person themselves IS/WAS a part of the SPIRITUAL nation of Israel if and when they fully accept(ed) Jesus as Messiah and obeyed his commands!

Now, let us examine a few more bible passages concerning the “continuation” of Jesus’s law:

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” – Matthew 24:35

Okay, so what can we gather from that? We know from several other scriptures (Isaiah 65:17, Revelation 21:1, Revelation 21:23) that the CURRENT heaven and Earth will BE DESTROYED and/or FOLDED UP LIKE A SCROLL, while a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH will be CREATED and BROUGHT DOWN TO EARTH. However, the WORDS OF GOD shall EXIST FOREVER! Therefore, it stands to reason: if his WORDS last forever, then that must also mean that his LAW lasts the ENTIRE BIBLE (beginning to End) – minus the animal sacrifices from Old Testament as soon as Jesus came to Earth the first time! 

Matthew 5:17-18 has something to say about the matter: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

Therefore we know that there’s still PLENTY of stuff to be fulfilled: The Mark of the Beast, The Antichrist, The War of Armageddon, The New Heaven and New Earth, The Great White Throne Judgement, etc.] So what that passage is saying is that UNTIL everything is fulfilled and I mean, E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G., the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS and BIBLICAL LAW **STILL APPLY!**

The only reason the biblical LAW will be done away with at the very END of Revelation 22 is because it will NO LONGER BE NEEDED for ALL who live in New Jerusalem at that time will be considered righteous, holy and untainted/WITHOUT SIN!

But a couple other passages that REALLY speak to my spirit concerning the matter are the following:

Please note that this first passage is said in FOUR different ways: Mark 7:7-9 and verse 13, respectively:

  • “HOWBEIT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN
  • “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do”.
  • And he said unto them, ‘Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition”
  • “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye”

Mark 7:7 IMMEDIATELY makes me think of all the “traditions” floating around today, that “the church” has taught over the years (Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, LGBT infiltration of schools/churches, “the law has been done away with” movement, “church entertainment”, etc). And think about it for a minute. WHAT or WHO has created all those “traditions?” They most certainly didn’t come from Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS ANGELS!

Jesus and the disciples never ONCE celebrated Christmas or Easter! Jesus and his disciples never ONCE welcomed practicing sodomites into the synagogues or made services all about the music and “entertainment”, rather than the MESSAGE! If John the Baptist or Paul were walking around today, observing how FAR all the modern-day churches have STRAYED from Jesus and his gospel, they’d be one of two things: RIGHTEOUSLY ANGRY, CRYING BITTER, BITTER TEARS or BOTH!

But two of the things they’d likely be MOST TROUBLED ABOUT is Paganized, masonic churches meeting on Sunday, the FALSE man-made gospel, rather than the TRUE biblical gospel (Saturday, the 7th day) and OPEN SODOMITES in the church and the “embracing” of OPEN SODOMY! They’d probably quickly run outside to throw up, their righteous spirits would be SO disturbed by what they saw! Therefore, it stands to reason: if Jesus and his disciples would be “disturbed” or “confused” by what they saw going on in modern-day churches today, then should mankind BE doing those abominable things? It begs of question!

In Matthew 7:13-14, JESUS HIMSELF said the following: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for WIDE is the gate, and BROAD is the way, that leadeth to DESTRUCTION, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it”.

 

This isn’t unlike another passage in Luke 16:15 which states: “And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God“. 

So lets unpack these two bible passages a bit. In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus is telling us that VERY FEW people find the STRAIGHT and NARROW gate (i.e. SPIRITUAL DOORWAY) which leads to LIFE! What is LIFE? It is JESUS HIMSELF! Jesus says in John 14:6:“…….I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME”. Put differently, Jesus is more or less telling us in that bible verse that he’s the ONLY way to Eternal Salvation/Eternal Life/Eternal Life with Him in “New Jerusalem” someday.

However, in telling us that the spiritual doorway/pathway to HIM and his ETERNAL TRUTH is NARROW, STRAIGHT and HARD TO FIND, He is ALSO telling us that the spiritual doorway/pathway to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION is VERY BROAD, WIDE, and VERY EASY to find! That’s why MOST PEOPLE will take THAT (i.e. the “easy”) way in life, instead of the STRAIGHT and NARROW way. Therefore, the NUMBER of people who will TRULY be saved by Jesus is very, very SMALL….a SMALL REMNANT:

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” – Luke 12:32

In other words, it is God the Heavenly’s Father GOOD PLEASURE to give the eternal kingdom of God to the SMALL REMNANT who TRULY believed in Jesus, obeyed him and called upon His name, instead of taking the more “popular” way in life! Meaning, they were willing to suffer persecution for Jesus’s name and for righteousness’s sake!

They were WILLING to suffer persecutions at home, in the workplace, abroad, online. They were WILLING to be mocked, laughed at, scorned, arrested on false “hate” charges, etc. They were WILLING to be imprisoned, killed, tortured and/or maimed for Jesus’s sake! They were WILLING to keep preaching the gospel in spite of low number of subscribers, low number of listeners and/or watchers and/or low number of congregants!

On the other hand, Jesus is letting us know right there in those passages that many, many, MANY people are on their way to hell/the lake of fire (even many whom call themselves “Christians”:

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – 2 Timothy 3:5

(Note: does the above passage remind anyone of famous televangelist preachers and/or the Pope? Or the “holier than thou Christians” seen in many churches and Christian online communities today? I sure hope so!)

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” – Matthew 7:21-23

In other words, just because you “call” yourself a Christian DOES NOT MEAN that you are truly born again per say, in JESUS’S EYES! Just “calling” yourself Christian or a believer in Jesus isn’t enough! You have to do the “talk” AND walk the “walk!” Meaning, you MUST obey Jesus’s commandments, and NOT just merely “believe” in him! Luke 21:36 states: “Watch therefore, and pray ALWAYS that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

And moseying on over to Luke 16:15, that passage is letting us know that what’s POPULAR among mankind in today’s world (i.e. think the “worship” of celebrities, vlogs, TicToc, Instagram, Facebook, LGBT “rights” and “propaganda”, “abortion”, “sodomy”, “pre-marital sex”, Youtube, videogames, “eating pork/shellfish/unkosher foods”, reality shows, secular movies/music/books, “socialistic ideals”, “trends”, etc.) is abomination in the sight of God. Jesus doesn’t like us worshiping celebrities etc. because it has the potential to damn our souls to eternal condemnation if we don’t REPENT (that means, to give up) such “worldly things” and “worldly behavior”. 

Therefore, whenever you see a “popular trend” among mankind, or see people just ranting and raving about how good this show is, how good these chips are, how good this movie is or how good that book is, you can almost be certain that that very “thing” is an abomination in the sight of God. However, interestingly enough, I DO NOT think the same criteria of Luke 16:15 applies to good CHRISTIAN things/music/materials. Because if something TRULY glorifies Jesus, why would Jesus NOT glory in it? Ya know? 

========

Yet another passage I’d like to share is Isaiah 29:13 which states: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid”

So here, we can see from this passage that many “Christians” and “Jews” and even many “Judeo-Christians” THEMSELVES, honor Jesus with their LIPS (going around saying “Praise God”, “Praise Jesus, etc.) but yet, their SPIRITUAL *HEART* is far FROM him!

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” – Matthew 6:21

Therefore, BECAUSE their spiritual HEART is far from him, he’s gonna CONFOUND (that means CONFUSE or LEAD ASTRAY/INTO CIRCLES) those who consider themselves “wise” or of whom others consider to be “wise” and he’s gonna HIDE the true gospel and TRUE biblical teachings from those who refuse or desire NOT to see them (i.e. mockers/scoffers, lukewarm Christians, the prideful/arrogant, the staunch atheists, the apathetic, etc.)

We see alot of that in the modern-day churches (and even modern-day Christian music industry, today). People substitute the word “God” for “Jesus” in alot of places, and try to make that “god” an all-encompassing god (i.e. claiming the God of the bible is the same as “Allah”, etc.) Well folks, the God of the bible is NOT in any way, shape or form the same god as “Allah” or any OTHER lower-case g god! The God of the bible is the ONLY true God! This is expressly spoken all throughout scripture! 

There’s also alot of people that “go to church” once a week, but then NEGLECT Jesus and his gospel the rest of the week. These are the people who “praise Jesus” in church but then revert back to their OWN lives the rest of the week! These are the people who say: “Sure, I believe in Jesus, he was a great moral teacher” or “Yeah, I believe in Jesus so I’ll automatically go to heaven just for believing in Jesus, ALONE”. Their LIPS praise Jesus but their HEARTS are far from Him! 

Let us examine Matthew 6:21 in a bit more detail: Where is your TREASURE? What are you MOST FOCUSED ON in life? What do you spend your MONEY on? (Most biblical scholars agree that your “treasure” is biblically and spiritually defined as what you most spend your MONEY on!)

In fact, there is SO much pressure in today’s society to “fit in” that people will buy things just to PROVE they have money and just to PROVE they’re not poor! And that’s where you get the concept of people “treasuring” material things/wealth MORE than they “treasure” Jesus/the gospel!

So in conclusion, in order to FULLY obey God/Jesus Christ, one must follow and obey the COMPLETE bible, not just HALF the bible! And to follow ALL the bible, we must have a true spiritual HEART for the bible! (Meaning, we must consider God’s Law above ALL other worldly things in our lives!) For HALF the bible is only HALF the truth! Please remember that Jesus is revealed IN the law and IN the biblical Sabbaths and IN the biblical feasts! Jesus is TRUTH! Only following HALF of the bible or HALF of the law is SPIRITUALLY HALF-HEARTED!

Think about it, folks! If we only obeyed the laws of the New Testament and not the Old, we’ve done ourselves a SERIOUS disservice! Same if we ONLY followed the laws of the Old Testament but not the New! We can’t just use the bible as a cafeteria line and pick which parts we want to follow and which parts not, it doesn’t work that way! Scripture determines scripture, FEELINGS don’t determine scripture!

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”. 

 

 

Is Jesus in YOUR “Diet?”

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

 

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

 

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

 

As well as spiritual food:

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

  • In Genesis 3:19bread is mentioned!

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

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

  • Genesis 19:3 mentions Unleavened Bread!

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

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

  • Genesis 42:1-3 mentions CORN!

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

 

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

 

  • Numbers 6:3 mentions grapes AND “grape juice

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

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

  • Numbers 11:32 mentions quail

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

  • Numbers 14:8 mentions milk & honey

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

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

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

  • Job 6:6 mentions EGGS & SALT

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

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

  • 2 Kings 4:39 mentions GOURDS

  • Isaiah 17:6 mentions OLIVES

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

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

  • Matthew 13:31 mentions mustard/mustard seed

  • Matthew 23:23 mentions mint, anise & cumin

  • Mark 1:6 mentions locusts & wild honey

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So again, for your benefit, I will re-list all the biblical foods listed up above and also state WHY they are beneficial to one’s health [and again, this is by no means an exhaustive list, there’s probably some biblical foods I missed in the listing]:

 

  • Fruits – Rich in vitamins & minerals, help you feel energized

  • Vegetables – Rich in vitamins & minerals, help you feel full

  • Bread (Whole Grain/Non-refined/Non-bleached) – Contains fiber, vitamin B & minerals

  • Wheat/Grains – Rich in vitamins, minerals, protein & fiber & reduces risk of heart disease/stroke/obesity/diabetes/chronic inflammation/constipation/cancer, etc.

  • Beans/Lentils – Low in fat, heart-healthy, protein-packed, fiber-packed, contains antioxidants, vitamins & minerals, lowers blood sugar/heart attack risk, etc.

Mark of the Beast: Coming To A Town Near YOU, Part ONE

Rather you’re a believer in Jesus Christ/Yeshua or not, ONE thing is certain……bible prophecy’s now happening in today’s world at BREAKNECK SPEED!

Don’t believe me? Here are just a FEW bible prophecies, complete with headlines:

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/signs-of-last-days-bible-prophecy-fulfilled/

The bible spoke of a time when the LAND would “mourn”, when human hearts would “wax cold”, when people would call good (in the “true biblical sense”) evil and evil (that WHICH the bible calls “evil”) good and also most specifically of a time when THE BEAST (i.e. Satan/Satan’s Geo-Political Frontman) would rise to power.

Now….For those of you not familiar with the bible, bible prophecy, AND/OR the book of Revelation in the New Testament, let me describe to you what’s gonna happen in the VERY near future:

There is chaos and “financial collapse” happening all over the globe. No-one can deny this. [Note: Argentina and Greece are just a PREVIEW of what is to come……even to DEVELOPED countries…] And someday soon, things are going to get bad…..really, really bad [financially and otherwise].

In fact, the bible hints that things will become SO BAD (financially), that ALL the countries of the world will likely have to elect or appoint a one world gov’t leader to “get a financial handle on it all”. And the way he will do this (the bible says it’s a he) is by developing a ONE WORLD CURRENCY, ONE WORLD RELIGION, AND ONE WORLD GOV’T.

“Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Wait there just a minute! All the religions of the world will NEVER AGREE to THAT”, some might say. But yet, the bible says they WILL. How? By deception on Satan’s part. See, Satan will be the one who GIVES this one world gov’t leader his power and the power to PERSUADE people.

And this man, this one world gov’t leader soon to arrive on the scene, is one and the same. He’ll try to make the Christians think he’s Jesus Christ, the Muslims think he’s Allah, the Buddhists to think he’s Maitreya or the 5th Buddha, the Jews to think he’s their “long-awaited Messiah” and the list goes on and on. 

Let me put this differently: The Christian Anti-Christ IS the “global end times messiah”/THE BEAST talked about in Revelation! And IS the “false messiah” of the world that all the world’s religions are waiting on! [Only, the world’s religions (as a whole) DON’T KNOW he’s a false messiah. By the time they DO figure it out, for many of them, it’ll be TOO LATE and their fates will already be sealed FOR ETERNITY! ;(]

Therefore, BECAUSE all the major world religions are awaiting a “messianic type figure”, it will be no problem at’tall FOR this one world gov’t leader to convince people that he IS the “messiah”. And we know from the bible that ALL people who’s names aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by this man/this false messianic figure who gets his power from Satan.

“What’s the Lamb’s Book of Life?”, some might ask. Answer: It is Jesus’s personal/spiritual record book of ALL those souls who believe in him, trust him, love him and OBEY HIM in any and ALL things! Those who believe and are baptized in the Holy Spirit of Truth! Those who have FULLY repented of their sins, etc. In other words, those that the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua is PROUD to call his servants! And he will profess those peoples’ names to the Heavenly Father and to the Holy Angels!

HOWEVER….Those whose names are NOT found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by THE BEAST/THE ANTICHRIST. He will have the power of PERSUASION. He will be very likeable and popular. He will seem to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. He’ll even perform FALSE MIRACLES, like bring fire down from heaven and bring life to an “image” of the Beast!

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed Revelation 13:13-15

 

And BECAUSE of that, He’ll have MANY, MANY, **MANY** people fooled, into thinking he’s “God”.

And AMIDST all the world chaous, and global financial meltdown, he’ll even “propose” a new “global financial system” that APPEARS to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. And “unsaved” people will fall for it, hook, line and sinker………..even many self-professed “Christians” themselves (YES, IT’S TRUE!)

Revelation 13:16-17 says: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”

Translation? This “mark” will be REQUIRED of ALL man, women and children, in order to be able to buy or sell. And WITHOUT this “mark” in their RIGHT HAND or FOREHEAD, they will NOT be able to buy or sell. And the book of Revelation says that ALL people who TAKE this “MARK” will be thrown into the LAKE OF FIRE…….FOR ETERNITY!

I can just picture it right now….”Christian” and/or “Messianic Jewish” families who’ve followed Jesus Christ their WHOLE LIVES…..only to start worrying at the VERY, VERY LAST MINUTE (when the GLOBAL FINANCIAL COLLAPSE happens) about how they’re going to feed their families and their young children….They really DON’T want to get the Mark (in their hearts) and they KNOW it’s wrong (eternally) but they figure Jesus would understand and forgive THEM for taking the Mark since they don’t truly worship the beast in their hearts & since they ONLY want to feed their children, nothing more (or so they “reason” with themselves, anyways)…….

They think there’s no way in HECK that Jesus would condemn THEM for such spiritual atrocities. But, they are VERY, VERY SADLY mistaken! For Jesus Christ will say to them on the Day of Judgement, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23) OUCH!

Because in Jesus’s eyes, there’s NO EXCUSE for sin! NONE! It doesn’t matter WHY a person would choose to take the Mark of the Beast. Just THAT they did. It is a MAJOR sign of disobedience to God and a MAJOR slap in God’s face cause it’s like saying PERSONALLY to Jesus: “Jesus….? I don’t trust you to provide for me and my family during our financial time of need. Just like I don’t trust you to feed my young children. I NEED to take the Devil’s Mark, in order to be able to feed my children. You understand, don’t you?”

JESUS ISN’T HAVING IT!!!!! You take the Mark, you DIE….spiritually…….and there’s NO HOPE FOR YOU, IF YOU DO! Because it’s IN that very moment where you choose The Mark or choose to die FOR Christ instead that will ultimately determine if YOUR name gets written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I’m SERIOUS!

Revelation even speaks of AN ANGEL that tries to go around warning people on the Earth NOT to get the Mark of the Beast:

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a LOUD voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” (Revelation 14: 9-11)

And people, THE MARK is NOT about food/buying/selling, it’s about WORSHIP! So when a person gets the Mark of the Beast to feed their families, they’re receiving the Beast’s Mark of WORSHIP! Plus who’s to say that it won’t IMMEDIATELY change a person’s brain chemistry into worshiping the beast? Just sayin’.

So……what happens to the people that REFUSE to worship the beast and/or take his “Mark”, you might ask? Revelation 13:15 says they will be killed. So, in short, when it comes down to the wire, it’s either gonna be take the mark and be damned by Jesus Christ FOR ETERNITY. Or REFUSE the mark and DIE. There IS no other way, folks!

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” Revelation 13:15

But take heart. Jesus says in John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”

Jesus ALSO says in John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”

In other words, to DIE for Christ is GAIN but to DENY CHRIST in any way, shape or form is to BECOME CHRIST’S ETERNAL ENEMY!

Think about that for awhile. Let that sink in……

Also meditate on the FOLLOWING:

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and **FEW** there be that find it” – (Matthew 7:13-14)

Translation? VERY FEW people make it to “New Jerusalem” (talked about in Chapters 21-22 in Revelation in the New Testament) while MILLIONS UPON BILLIONS are CONDEMNED to the LAKE OF FIRE….FOR ETERNITY!

“Why so many?”, one may ask and the answer is THIS: Because VERY few people OBEY Christ! It’s not JUST about “believing” in Him but also OBEYING Him! For example, the Muslims believe in Christ but they don’t OBEY Him! For IF they DID truly “obey Him”, they would worship Jesus Christ AS the Messiah, and NOT as some “lowly messenger”. That’s just ONE example, there.

Another example might be a “Catholic” that REFUSED to stop worshiping “idols” (something that God/Jesus EXPRESSLY forbids!) And yet others might be all the “lukewarm” Christians out that never bothered to help those in need, etc., OR the Christians/Messianics in above theoretical example who took the “Mark”, in order to be able to feed their family, etc. Or those who’ve followed other religions, didn’t believe in Christ or just HATED Christ in general (i.e. Satanists, etc.)

But the ONE thing that ALL people who take the Mark have in common is that they (in true effect) ETERNALLY DENY CHRIST the VERY MOMENT they receive THE MARK OF THE BEAST. But it sure won’t LOOK like the Mark of The Beast, all menacing/ominous and stuff. It will probably LOOK innocent to most people. “Oh, it’s just a one world gov’t mark or symbol, no big”, most people will say. My guess is that The Mark will be some sort of symbol for “global unity” but that’s ALSO associated with the number 666, somehow. But again, who knows. 

And I can’t stress this ENOUGH, folks! Taking the Mark has NOTHING to do about buying or selling (though, if one wants to be able to buy or sell, they WILL have to take the Mark, no exceptions!) It has EVERYTHING to do with WORSHIP. The Beast wants WORSHIP. And if people won’t worship him willfully, he wants them to do it forcefully, by force, by ANY means necessary, really. 

Are YOU ready to give up your life for Christ? If someone told you tomorrow “take The Mark or DIE“, would YOU be willing to die? If not, why? Because folks, let me tell ya something. If YOU’RE not ready to DIE for Christ when the time comes, YOU need to pray to GET READY for when that time comes. Because that time’s gonna be here sooner than you or even I, know it. MARK MY WORDS!

The Lord Is My Joy & My Salvation! ;)

I can think back on the most happiest moment of MY LIFE! It was when I very first met Jesus Christ for the VERY first time in my life (during a NDE) with NO previous knowledge of him! 😉 

Whenever I look nowadays at the pool steps and look at the very place where he once sat (during my NDE), my soul starts to cry emotional tears of joy and I start to get all joyfully emotional! I can’t help it! 

I think of my life BEFORE Yeshua/Jesus Christ came to rescue me from death that day (in more ways than one) and it seems like my life prior to him was pretty pointless. And then I think about my life AFTER meeting Jesus Christ/Yeshua during my near-death experience and how EXCITING and FULFILLING it was, KNOWING that a) there was a God and that b) that same almighty God really, truly cared about me, no matter what! 😉 I can’t even BEGIN to describe what that feeling is like!

I remember the swimming pool water being extremely cold that day, especially at the point in time when he told me to dunk myself under so he could “baptize me in his great, heavenly name!” I remember the feeling of JOY, ELATION, ESTASTICNESS, PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS, HEALING, JUBILATION that came over me as soon as I came back up to the surface of the water! It was the best feeling that my soul has EVER experienced in all its existence!

And when I READ the bible, ESPECIALLY the New Testament, I think to myself with amazement and wonder: “Wow! That is THE JESUS that descended down out of heaven to come save me that day! That is THE JESUS who sat me in his lap and giggled when he splashed water on me! That is THE JESUS who warned me of the End Times and his almighty Judgement! That is THE JESUS who told me I had a pure heart and a dizzying intellect!” And I sometimes feel emotionally overwhelmed. I’ve been known to CRY (emotional tears of jubilation and JOY) when I read certain bible passages about him or spoken directly FROM him!

Though at times in my life I’ve gone through some bad things, and/or have felt extremely anxious and depressed, the Lord Jesus Christ has ALWAYS been there to see me through! Plus (get this!), he EVEN has a SENSE OF HUMOR! I kid you not! Let me share with you one of THE MOST FUNNIEST things he’s ever done:

It was Spring Break 2003. Me and my bestfriend Sarah were heading off to Arizona and New Mexico to see the sites. We drove through severe rain in southern Arizona and by the time we hit Northern Arizona, it was severe blizzard-like conditions. Well, to be quite frank, I was getting quite BORED with the “traditional prayer format” of “Dear Lord, I need this or that. Help me please, Amen”.

So I turned to Sarah and said Hey dude, I got an idea! and started giggling. She was wondering what was up. I then help up a “pretend CB radio with my right hand” while driving and said into the pretend CB radio: “Eagle 1, Eagle 1, this is Eagle 2, over. We need some major help down here. We’re caught in a really bad snow storm right now and there’s about 15 cars or more on the side of the road and we don’t want to become one of them, over”.

I sensed nothing in response so far. So again, I help up my pretend CB-radio in my right hand while driving and said: “Eagle 1, eagle 1, can you hear me, over? 10/4, 10/4, We REALLY, REALLY need your help right now, Eagle 1, I’m dead serious! Do you copy, over?” and just then, Sarah and I heard “static crackle” at what sounded like an ACTUAL CB radio come out of the car’s radio system, along with the audible words: Stop worrying, eagle 2! Help’s on the way, LOOK BEHIND YOU – OVER“. Sarah and I just looked at each other and both said at the same time, “Is that an ACTUAL CB radio? How did they hear us? Weird…?”

Not long after that, Sarah and I noticed a small U-haul truck coming up in the right-hand lane off to our right. And then, all of a sudden, Sarah said, “Dude, I think you’re supposed to get behind the U-haul truck with their emergency flashers on”. So I quickly got in the right lane and we got behind the small U-haul truck.

And then…..Sarah started giggling. I said, “what’s so funny?” She said, “look at where they’re from!” Their license plate said “Washington”.  Washington was the 1ST PRESIDENT of the U.S. and the Eagle is our National U.S. symbol, THUS, “Eagle 1”! 😉 Therefore, the Lord NOT ONLY gave us an actual CB radio response IN RESPONSE to my pretend CB-radio prayer, but he also HUMORED us a bit in the ANSWERING of the prayer! 😉 Hehehe

But that’s just one of MANY instances where the Lord displayed his sense of humor to me! Another time the Lord displayed his sense of humor is when I was at work, and I was carrying a small metal pan. And about 30 seconds after my crush walked by, something made me “drop” the pan on the floor (that I had had a VERY firm grip on) and it made a BOOMING LOUD CLANG (which made my crush look back and laugh) and I could FEEL the Lord LAUGHING at me and the embarrassed look on my face! Though I could tell it was “affectionate/teasing” type laughter and not the cruel kind. hahaha 😉 

The Lord has ALSO done things where he silently encouraged me to go talk to this person or that person (who ended up being some of the very best friends of my life!) He’s been there for me through thick and thin! When I am smiling, HE is smiling! And when I am crying, I can sense that HE is crying, too! Which makes sense, considering that the bible says that it’s not his will that ANY should perish! 

Before Jesus came into my life, I was nothing, I was no-one! But IN him, I am everything, I am SOMEONE! Apart from him, I can do NOTHING! But WITH him, I can do ANYTHING! He’s helped me overcome my anxiety on certain things and my soda pop addition, etc. (some things I thought I’d NEVER break free from!) He’s helped to humble me and to correct me when I need correcting! He’s enlightened me and taught me SO many things about what his word IS and what it isn’t!

He’s taken the spiritual blinders off my eyes and has now shown me his full gospel IN FULL! He’s given me strength when I was depressed, downtrodden, anxious, alone or angry! He’s helped me to overcome the most difficult of situations and people! He’s grabbed me out of Satan’s grasp more than once! He will ALWAYS be there to listen to me whenever I have a problem, struggle or question about something! Basically, he’s the best thing that EVER happened to me in this life and apart from him, I WOULD have no reason for being! I am ALIVE today because of HIM! I am forgiven of all my sins because of HIM and the spiritual sacrifice he made for ALL of mankind! And someday, I’ll get to live with him FOREVERMORE! 

The Lord is MY JOY & MY SALVATION! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Cultural Christianity” Vs. BIBLICAL Christianity

Many people of today call themselves “Christian” and celebrate in “Christian holidays”, etc. But VERY FEW “Christians” actually take a step back and wonder if what they’ve been “practicing in the church” their whole lives, as a “Christian”, is EVEN BIBLICAL! They just “assume” it is. And that is sad and unfortunate, folks!

CULTURAL CHRISTIANS (as a whole) :

  1. Go to “church” every Sunday

  2. Pay tithes to “the church

  3. Sit in pews while listening to a “pastor” preach (in general) “feel good” messages that oftentimes have nothing to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, bible prophecy or the End Times (in general), while maintaining own’s own individual “silence” about their own personal experiences/biblical insight with the Lord with fellow church members (during a church sermon) and the OUTSIDE WORLD 

  4. Celebrate in “Christian holidays” without a second’s thought as to WHERE those “traditions” came from/etc.

  5. See nothing wrong with LGBT issues/BEING LGBT

  6. See nothing wrong with “abortion” and see it as a “woman’s right”

  7. Believe the Old Testament and “Biblical Feasts” No Longer Apply, that they are ONLY “Jewish feasts” and also that “Christian holidays” are “truly biblical”

  8. Don’t take marriage vows seriously (as a whole) 

  9. Think it’s OK to bring “New Age” concepts into “the church” (as a whole)

  10. Think “the church” is a building/a place to GO TO and not a thing TO BE

  11. Think Genesis and the book of Revelation ARE NOT REAL

  12. Don’t see ANY major importance in studying up on bible prophecy and the End Times

BIBLICAL Christians, on the other hand, don’t DO any of the 12 things above (as a whole)………In fact, they do JUST THE OPPOSITE:

  1. Celebrate the Sabbath on the BIBLICAL 7TH DAY OF THE WEEK (Saturday), not sunday!
  2. Do NOT pay “tithes” to the institutionalized “Christian church” but instead, CHEERFULLY give to those in need (i.e. a homeless person on the street, someone at the doctor’s office that needs help with medical costs, a person in line at the register that’s short of change/money, etc.)
  3. Study up on the End Times and bible prophecy
  4. (As a whole) Do NOT really celebrate in “Christian holidays” anymore in their hearts but instead, celebrate in the BIBLICAL/JEWISH HOLIDAYS, while also trying to learn as much about the “Jewish/Biblical roots” of Christianity that they can! 
  5. Realize that LGBT behavior is a GRAVE SIN……something that the ancient biblical cities of Sodom & Gomorrah were burned down for!
  6. See Abortion as a GRAVE SIN and realizes that ALL of life is “precious” in the Lord’s site!
  7. KNOW that “Christian holidays” are of Pagan origin and that the “Jewish holidays” mentioned in the bible are the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS!
  8. Take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY!
  9. KNOW that “New age” philosophy has NO PLACE in the true, BIBLICAL church!
  10. KNOW and REALIZE that “the church” isn’t a place to go to but rather, a thing TO BE! For EACH believer themselves + the “assembly” of believers = “THE TRUE/BIBLICAL CHURCH”, according to the bible!
  11. KNOW without a doubt that ALL OF THE BIBLE IS TRUE, all the way from Genesis to Revelation!
  12. KNOW and REALIZE the **UTMOST IMPORTANCE** of studying up on bible prophecy and the End Times and knows that Jesus Christ IS the spirit of prophecy!

[Yet sadly, many “CHRISTIANS” today are “CULTURAL CHRISTIANS”. They are not true, AUTHENTIC Christians, but Christians “in name, ONLY”.

Oddly, many people today are “Cultural Christians” without even REALIZING it! In fact, I myself used to be a “Cultural Christian” that worshiped on the Sunday Sabbath, was on the fence about pre-marital sex being a sin or not if two people were engaged to be married, etc. (before the Lord opened up my eyes!)

[YES, Jesus Christ had appeared to me when I was little during a NDE, but there were still many, many things about him/his word that I HADN’T yet learned at that point in time, from ages 2-32. The only thing the NDE did was prove to me that he was real, that he came from heaven, that he had the power over life and death, that his voice had the ability to shake the Earth and the waters and that during the End Times, many would “fall away” and be eternally judged by HIM!}

In fact, Jesus says in Matthew 15: 8-9This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from meBut in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men“. [OUCH! Does that NOT sound like most of today’s “Christians” in the “institutionalized Christian church”, folks?]

And honestly, I think the Lord “purposely” allowed me to BE a fellow “Cultural Christian” for awhile so that I could see just HOW “easy” it is TO fall into the TRAP that’s known as “Cultural Christianity”. It was only through YEARS and YEARS of biblical study that I was FINALLY able to break free through all the false, Satanic layers in “Modern-day Christianity” and teach OTHERS how to do so! I simply call it “peeling back the layers”.

In fact, if Jesus Christ were to come to the Earth today and see just how “the church” was being run, (in general), I’m sure he’d be just as angry (if not even more so) as he was towards the money-changers in the temple in biblical times (Matthew 21:13). In fact, what would he see, if he were to see most of today’s “Christian churches” and “Christians”? He’d likely see the following:

  1. A “pastor” droning on and on about a “feel good” message that had NOTHING to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, bible prophecy or the End Times (in general)

  2. People “tithing” money for the “church building upgrade”, the pastor’s new car, etc.

  3. People being “solemn pew potatoes”, instead of JOYOUSLY sharing with EACH OTHER as well as nonbelievers (on a daily basis and not JUST during bible study) their knowledge/experience with the bible/the Lord/their lives as it pertains to Christ/etc.

  4. People “celebrating” in holidays that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and that actually MOCKED HIM, in hindsight (while also WORSHIPING IDOLS – and not just Catholic “saints”, folks….Tell me what the EASTER BUNNY and SANTA CLAUS have to do with Christ? ANSWER: NOTHING!!! They’re an ABSOLUTE MOCKERY OF JESUS CHRIST IN FRONT OF OUR VERY OWN EYES AND MANY HUMANS DON’T EVEN REALIZE OR SEE IT!!!!)

  5. People clinging to “Satanic lies” of “pleasure and SODOMY” (especially in the LGBT community) and ALSO people who buy into the transgender LIE of: “I think, therefore I am” when that personally can’t be FURTHER from the “biological truth!” [Truth be told, NO AMOUNT OF SURGERY IS GOING TO CHANGE A PERSON GENETICALLY……only COSMETICALLY…..plus, even IF such technology would ever come about, MESSING WITH THE IMAGE OF GOD HAS *DIRE* ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES, WHICH IS THE LAKE OF FIRE!] 

  6. Many women in the church “seeing nothing wrong with abortion” and “getting one”, as a result

  7. People writing off Jesus’s BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles,etc.) that are both a foreshadowing of him AND revealed in him, saying to themselves and others that they are just “Jewish holidays, ONLY”

  8. Married people cheating on each other right and left and/or working on their 3rd/4th marriage (swapping spouses like they do underwear)

  9. People (especially young people) incorporating New Age concepts into “the church”, while also (as a whole) NOT saving themselves for marriage before having sex/etc.

  10. People TRULY believing in their hearts that “the church” is “a BUILDING”, and not the body/assembly of believers themselves

  11. People TRULY believing in their hearts that Genesis is NOT real, that Revelation is NOT real, that bible prophecy is NOT real/no longer applies

  12. People that “yawn” at bible prophecy and don’t see its total significance

In fact, do you think Jesus Christ would be happy with even HALF the stuff going on in “the churches” today? The answer is a resounding NO!

In fact, during his mighty Day of Judgement, Jesus warns:

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not” (Matthew 25: 41-43)

But the UNREPENTANT “Cultural Christians”will be SHOCKED to hear this! They will protest with the FOLLOWING:

“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?” (Matthew 7:22)

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?” (Matthew 25:44)

And HERE is how Jesus is going to RESPOND to such people:

Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it NOT to one of the least of these, ye did it NOT to me” (Matthew 25:45)

“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matthew 7:23)

[And while there’s SOME Christians out there in the church today who truly have NO IDEA about what the true sabbath is, and that DO believe homosexuality/abortion’s a sin, and that DO try to please the Lord Jesus Christ in everything they do, these folks (today, atleast) are FEW and FAR BETWEEN! The good majority of “Christians” in “the church” today are “CULTURAL CHRISTIANS”.

They not only don’t KNOW the REAL history of the Christian church/manmade Sun-day Sabbath:

http://withoutspotorblemish.blogspot.com/2010/04/happy-ishtar-no-wait-i-mean-happy.html

But they DON’T CARE to know these things! And if they DO know the true history of the church/etc., they (once again) DON’T CARE! They are COMPLACENT and have a COMPLACENT ATTITUDE towards Christ and his gospel and it’s that VERY SAME complacent attitude that’s going to COST THEM THEIR ETERNAL SALVATION IF THEY DON’T QUICKLY REPENT AND CHANGE THEIR HEARTS! **THE DOOR TO SPIRITUAL PROBATION IS SOON CLOSING, FOLKS! TIME TO GET RIGHT WITH THE *BIBLICAL* JESUS CHRIST AND NOT THE “FALSE ONE” TAUGHT IN CHURCHES TODAY!!!!!!]

Therefore, any “Cultural Christian” REFUSING to change their heart/mind/body/spirit, AFTER LEARNING THE TRUTH, (THE TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH), in order to make themselves right with the Lord? Jesus will be ETERNALLY CASTING THOSE PEOPLE OUT……..those that CALLED themselves “Christian” while living on Earth but never really bothered to check just what being a “Christian” really meant or what the TRUE history of Christianity/the “Christian church” was!

Those that called themselves “Christian” but yet, still continued to worshiped IDOLS on a NONBIBLICAL MAN-MADE SABBATH and that also celebrated in PAGANIZED SATANIC HOLIDAYS that actually MOCK JESUS! THOSE who cared more about the world and the things OF the world than they did Jesus and his gospel! Those who never donated to those in need,etc. And BECAUSE they never really gave Jesus (the BIBLICAL JESUS) the TRUE honor, worship and credence that he DESERVED, they will NOT have their names written in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!

In fact, Revelation 20:15 states the following: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

“What’s the lake of fire?”, some might ask. Answer: It’s 1,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell! And the fires of hell are 100,000 times hotter than a flame from a small lighter (according to the archangel Michael during one of my near-suicide experiences).

So do the math, folks! The lake of fire is HOTTER THAN ANYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE, most likely! And this fire (BECAUSE it is SO abominably HOT), was originally intended for the Devil and his angels! And the fires of hell are someday gonna MERGE INTO the lake of fire, (according to Revelation in the bible), making it EVEN HOTTER! So imagine this, folks! Put your hand under a small flame from a lighter! Feel the INTENSITY of that flame! Then imagine something that’s 100 TRILLION times hotter than that and that’s the lake of fire for ya!

So just think…..ALL the nonbelievers, ALL followers of “different religions”, ALL “Cultural Christians” will end UP in the “lake of fire”. And they will be there FOR ETERNITY!

For it states in Revelation 14:11 “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

But let me take this a step further. BECAUSE “Cultural Christians” aren’t TRULY saved in the name of Jesus and BECAUSE the Holy Spirit’s not WITH THEM, they will fall for almost any lie brought on by Satan and his New World Order!

In fact, amidst world chaos (that’s already happening in the world today), a global world leader will someday soon come on the scene (if not already so!) He will appear to be the answer to the world’s problems. He will even “promote peace”. But it’ll be a FALSE PEACE! For this global leader is nothing other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And he will someday soon require ALL of Earth’s inhabitants (rich and poor, great and small, free and bond) to take a mark on their right hand or their foreheads, in order to be able to buy and sell. But WHOEVER takes this mark will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY! (That’s what the last part of Revelation 20:15’s talking about: “and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name”).

On the OTHER hand, if Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today and see all of the people that were desperately trying to RETURN to “Jewish/biblical-roots Christianity” and/or live their lives as “biblically accurate” as possible, I think he would be QUITE PLEASED! For he (in general) would see the following:

  1. Those who study the KJV bible at home or in “small group house churches” (the true, biblical model of “church”)

  2. Those giving money to people who actually need it (e.g. homeless people on the street, people in need of medical assistance costs, the person in front of us at the register who’s short $1 or two, etc.)

  3. Those giving their own biblical “insight” or personal experiences to other fellow Christians AND nonbelievers, instead of just listening to a pastor rattle on & on with what is oftentimes a “feel good” message that has NO true biblical importance concerning the BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST or merit concerning bible prophecy, the End Times…….OR listening to a true, BIBLICAL message about the End Times/bible prophecy, etc. 

  4. Those who mostly celebrate ONLY in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.), while “inching away from Christmas” and DENOUNCING ALL IDOLS/IDOL WORSHIP

  5. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of Satan’s LGBT “agenda” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it

  6. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of “Satan’s abortion agenda” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it

  7. Those who not only believe but KNOW that the Old Testament and Biblical Feasts stand for NOT JUST the Old Testament AND New Testament times but for ALL TIME (even the New Millennium!)

  8. Those who take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY

  9. Those who see the TOTAL LIES of Satan’s “New Age concepts” and aren’t afraid to speak up about it, as it pertains to “the church”

  10. Those who know (or have come to know) that “the church” is the body/assembly of believers themselves, and NOT “a building”

  11. Those who KNOW that Genesis and Revelation (and every word of the bible – front to back) is not only REAL but that Genesis ACTUALLY HAPPENED, that everything in the Book of Revelation WILL happen, and that everything in between from the beginning of the bible to the near end has ALREADY HAPPENED – MARK MY WORDS!)

  12. Those who know and realize the UTMOST IMPORTANCE (especially at THIS time and hour in “world history) to study up on bible prophecy and the End Times and how current world news events fit into bible prophecy [Open Your Eyes People is an end times ministry that DOES just that….they focus on world news events and how they tie in to bible prophecy, a MUCH NEEDED MESSAGE in today’s “sinful world!”]

And guess what? On Jesus’s day of judgement, instead of CASTING OUT the people who TRULY hunger and thirst for the TRUE, BIBLICAL righteousness and NOT the FALSE type of “righteousness” as THE WORLD or “church congregations” define it, he will instead say:

“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me” (Matthew 25: 34-36)

“Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25: 21)

In other words, these true people of the Lord will receive LIFE ETERNAL and will gain entry through the gates of the NEW heavenly city called NEW JERUSALEM, that God Almighty shall bring down from heaven! (Revelation 21-22 in New Testament)

Though sadly, the number of these people will be few and far between. For Jesus says:

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7: 13-14)

A good illustration of this is Youtube. Just look at how many “popular videos” there are on Youtube. Then notice how many of these “popular videos” discuss Jesus’s gospel (Jesus’s TRUE GOSPEL, that is!) Very, very few, right?  

On the OTHER hand, all the Youtube videos that DO talk about Jesus? The true, BIBLICAL Jesus? Most get less than 10,000 views (even 5 years after being on there). Why is that, do you think?

Or just think about email forwards. How often do people send email forwards of funny jokes or funny news articles, yet, HESITATE when it comes to sending emails about Jesus Christ or his gospel? Have YOU ever hesitated at sending an email forward to someone concerning Christ’s gospel? I have, in the past! (Much to my shame!)

But see, that’s just how EASY it is to fall into Satan’s trap, folk! We must be VIGILANT in these last days, sharing Jesus’s LIFE-SAVING *JEWISH-ROOTS* GOSPEL of Salvation with everyone or anyone who’ll listen. NOTE: If you get someone who “pesters” you over the gospel or makes “mocking remarks”, ignore them & keep preaching to others who WILL listen to your message! Because believe it or not, all God wants you to do in the mocker’s life is “plant the spiritual seed”, that’s IT! You’re not responsible for THEIR salvation, folks! Especially if they’re a MOCKER of the gospel! So remember that! 

I personally wish I could send a “TRUE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY” flier to every single household here in America! Sadly, many pastors THEMSELVES already KNOW the truth about Constantine and how he changed the Sabbath Day etc. but REFUSE to acknowledge it to their congregations since they still want their funding from the state and since they still want those almighty dollars $$$$$ to be flowing inside their churches! 

Many pastors do sermons where they claim “Satan will never be welcome in THIS CHURCH” (looking around at their congregants for “validation”), but what they don’t know (or DO KNOW but don’t want to admit) is that “Satan” has been in the modern-day “Christian Church” ALL ALONG, ever since Constantine very first gave him a “foot-hold” by changing the Lord’s BIBLICALLY-MANDATED 7th-Day Sabbath to a FALSE, SATANIC, Sun-day worshiping one! That is PRECISELY when Constantine turned “Christianity” into a LIE!

And then, here, you got all these Catholics, all these Lutherans and Protestants that think that “going to church every Sunday” will deem them saved! But oh, how HORRIFIED many of these poor folks will be when they learn THE TRUTH (that Satan was the head and master of the “modern day Christian church” ALL ALONG!)

And oh how HORRIFIED they will be when they LEARN (when they FINALLY LEARN) that the “Jesus Christ” they THOUGHT they were worshiping “at church” was nothing other than Satan himself IN DISGUISE! In fact, the “Jesus Christ” worshiped in churches today is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Why? Because as a whole, the “JESUS” taught in churches today, here in the year 2016, is a false, Paganized Jesus that seems to “accept” abominable practices such as abortion, homosexuality, divorce, etc. and can’t save a person from their sins! 

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, FOLKS! *IF* YOU END UP IN THE LAKE OF FIRE SOMEDAY, IT WON’T BE BECAUSE I DIDN’T WARN YOU! IT’LL BE BECAUSE YOU DECIDED, IN YOUR OWN FREE WILL, THAT YOU KNEW BETTER THAN GOD/JESUS CHRIST AND THAN THE LORD’S SERVANTS! SO REMEMBER THAT, FOLKS! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WARNING: Learn from MY Mistake!!!!

Many people on here might think that I’m somehow “perfect”, that I never make mistakes in trying to live a life for Yeshua/Jesus Christ, and that I never falter. But I’m here to tell you otherwise. As per Romans 3:23, I’m an imperfect being. I DO make mistakes from time to time in my attempts to live for Yeshua/Jesus Christ.

For example: this past “Christmas”, I tried like HECK to tell my overly traditional family member that I did NOT feel like celebrating Christmas this year and why. It turned into a BIG argument and two days later, I found myself being tempted to “cave in” so as to shut up their bitching, nagging and raving about it. AND…..not having the strength to argue and leave the house, I found myself “complacently” eating Christmas Eve dinner, and then later going into the living room on Christmas Eve to sit down (with the small “blasphemous” Christmas tree in the window).

Now, one day after Christmas, the guilt, shame and TERRIBLE feeling in the pit of my stomach is just EATING ME ALIVE ON THE INSIDE! I can HARDLY stand to live with myself, folks! And I just KNOW the Lord Jesus is HIGHLY, HIGHLY disappointed in me! And believe me, that’s the most absolute GUT-WRENCHING feeling in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!

But the POINT I wanted to make in all of this is THIS: It’s much, much, MUCH better to have friends, church members and family members upset with you for NOT celebrating Christmas than it is for JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY to be upset with you FOR celebrating the “blasphemous” holiday of Christmas, EVEN IF IT’S ONLY CHRISTMAS DINNER!

I can only hope and pray that the Lord Jesus will forgive me for my most sinful, grievous mistake this year! In fact, I even tried to “compromise” on Christmas this year, as in, if I ONLY celebrated Christmas Eve dinner with family and did NOT open my presents in front of the Christmas tree and did NOT truly wish to celebrate Christmas AT ALL in my HEART, that I somehow wasn’t sinning against Jesus Christ, even though in the depths of my heart and soul, I think I knew better.

Before Christmas Eve and ON Christmas Eve, I kept praying and praying that maybe the power would go out or that the tree would just “disintegrate” (branches, too) in front of everyone’s eyes (as an “easy way out” from having to celebrate Christmas), but no such luck. The Lord Jesus Christ was TESTING ME to see how strongly and boldly I’d stick to his Word.

I even made what “I” thought was a justifiable excuse: but the Lord Jesus KNOWS my heart and that I do NOT want to truly celebrate this godless holiday and feel SICKENED about it in the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL but feel forced to by my family! So if the Lord KNOWS my heart and KNOWS I hate Christmas with a PASSION in my heart, he will excuse me from its *consequences*, right?

But sadly, ANY excuse for “sin” is NO EXCUSE, folks and I honestly had to learn that the hard way this year! I can’t STAND the awful feeling eating away at me in the pit of my stomach knowing that I failed HIM, I failed the King of Kings and Lord of Lords by passively celebrating in this “godless” holiday that people call “Christmas”!

Now tell me: What do Christmas trees have to do with Jesus? Nothing, right? And if they’re NOT “idols” in peoples’ lives, why are they SO RELUCTANT to let them go?

And people actually claim that Christmas trees AREN’T worshiped? HA! 

Check out the following 3 items

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging

Not only green when summer’s here,
But also when it’s cold and drear.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

For every year this Christmas tree,
Brings to us such joy and glee.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging!
A symbol of goodwill and love
You’ll ever be unchanging

Each shining light
Each silver bell
No one alive spreads cheer so well

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging

I cried for days and and days and days BEFORE Christmas, RIGHT AFTER the “festivities” on Christmas Eve and ON Christmas “Day” and beyond. I just can’t get over the shame! Why? Because I can FEEL Jesus’s angered tears at my “cowered betrayal” of Him and his command to me to NOT celebrate Christmas this year or any year after! I CAN HARDLY STAND TO LIVE WITH MYSELF NOW, FOLKS! I feel like the world’s most terrible person now, in Jesus’s eyes! And the feeling of guilt, shame and hypocrisy is just BEYOND OVERWHELMING!

I’ve barely eaten the last two days and have spent most my time laying in bed, crying. Jesus Christ has done SO, SO VERY MUCH for me in my life. So now for me to unwittingly and cowardly turn my back on him like that, just because I didn’t have the heart to keep arguing with my mom over the holiday? ;(

The Lord Jesus has taught me a VERY valuable Earth-shattering lesson here, folks! If it comes down to two things and two things ONLY, HIM or your family? You’d better pick HIM! No matter what! Your family members didn’t create you or the universe! Your family members don’t have the power of heaven and hell and death in their very hands! Your family members didn’t talk in a burning bush, send the plagues to Egypt, or calm the ROARING SEA! Your family members don’t have the power of space and time in their very hand!

True, they will laugh, they will mock, they will scoff and they WILL get mad/indifferent when you claim you no longer want to celebrate Christmas (TRUST ME ON THIS) but you can NOT let that get to you, folks! You MUST stand strong! You MUST stand firm! ESPECIALLY in 2016, when things are going to get much, much, MUCH worse than they EVER WERE in 2015, BELIEVE ME ON THIS, FOLKS! Do NOT make the same mistake of “compromise” in the upcoming year of 2016 that I unwittingly made this year in 2015! And IF you do, I pray the Lord Jesus Christ will have mercy upon your SOUL! Just as I pray he has mercy upon MY soul!

Alot of pastors and Christians do NOT like to talk about this subject but it MUST be brought to light! Just like a parent can lose patience with his/her child, Jesus can also LOSE HIS PATIENCE with US, if we’re not careful! And once we’re beyond the point of no return, once HIS wrath in OUR lives reaches its “breaking point”, there’s NO turning back! THAT is when he will predetermine that we are NOT FIT FOR THE MILLENNIAL/ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD [NEW JERUSALEM].

[Please remember that in the time of Noah, there was a period of SPIRITUAL PROBATION. And as soon as the “breaking point” of that “spiritual probation” CLOSED, there was NO GOING BACK! The bible says that after the door of Noah’s ark was SEALED shut, SEVEN DAYS went by BEFORE the “fountains of heaven” were opened up and it began to rain for 40 days and 40 nights!

And I’m sure that AS all the people that thought that Noah was a “silly old man” were standing there and mocking Noah and his “ark”, they had NO IDEA of the calamity that was soon to come! So it is with people who still STUBBORNLY insist on celebrating “Pagan Christian” holidays in their hearts! They think the “bible followers” are CRAZY and REFUSE to take heed!

Therefore, THEIR point of “spiritual probation” is CLOSING! Yes, CLOSING, folks! Once they get to that theoretical “spiritual point” in their lives where they are metaphorically standing outside the “Ark of God”, laughing, mocking and scoffing, it will be TOO LATE FOR THEM, AS THERE’S NO GOING BACK, AT THAT POINT IN TIME! I’m sure there were altleast a FEW people who were banging on the “Ark” at that time, begging to be let in but after God sealed it shut, it could NOT be opened by Noah and his family! And my best spiritual guess is that Noah and his family could NOT even pry the Ark’s door open for someone at that point in time, EVEN if they had wanted to!]

But the main point I want to make here (EVEN FOR MYSELF, EVEN) is that Christmas is NOT okay to “compromise” on. Easter is NOT okay to “compromise” on. NO “Paganized Christian” holiday is okay to compromise on, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS! That is what the Lord Jesus Christ has taught me in HIS RIGHTEOUS ANGER!

ALL of “Christian holidays” are based on ancient Pagan “sex festivals”. Does that SHOCK YOU? It shouldn’t. Considering the world just LOVES these “holidays”.

And yet, the world (as a whole) has never even HEARD of the holidays of Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Firstfruits, etc. And why is that, do you think? Answer: Because those are the ONLY holidays that truly DO celebrate Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ONLY! These holidays don’t share Jesus with ANY other object or “entity” (such as easter bunny, santa claus, costumes, noise makers, etc.) And the bible says that “the world” (as a whole) does NOT want ANYTHING to do with the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ and OH HOW TRUE THAT IS IN TODAY’S HEATHEN, FALLEN, GODLESS WORLD!!!!!!!!! A world where sin ABOUNDS!

But in fact, Jesus Christ DID describe his “flock” as a L I T T L E FLOCK. Translation? VERY FEW PEOPLE will make it through the gates of the heavenly city of New Jerusalem someday. VERY FEW. Why? Lets turn to the bible for the answer:

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” – [Luke 12:32]

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – [Matthew 7: 13-14]

Translation? Many, many, MANY billions of people will go to “the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15 in the New Testament] and only a VERY FEW SELECT FEW will to to “God’s Paradise” of the new heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” [described in Revelation 21-22]. 

Ever since the death of Jesus Christ and the original apostles, it came to be in the world (as a whole) that the TRUE “Jewish gospel” of Jesus Christ was “not popular”. Why? Because it demanded people to DENY themselves “Earthly pleasures” and to live “humble lives”.

Therefore, this “pick-up-your-cross-and-follow-me-gospel” was soon replaced by a Babylonian/Pagan “pleasures GALORE” gospel that the world (as a whole) EMBRACED! Why? Because “the world” (as a whole) HATES the biblical Jesus Christ and doesn’t want anything to do with him!

Do you REALLY think that if December 25th was Jesus’s TRUE birthday that the Earth would be celebrating it? I THINK NOT! For if December 25th was the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ’s birthday, the world (as a whole) would want NOTHING to do with that date, TRUST ME ON THIS, FOLKS!

Also: Imagine if people replaced your REAL birthday with Hitler’s birthday! And instead of giving creed and honor to YOU, people instead sung songs of praise to HITLER! And proudly displayed Nazi regalia all throughout their home! How would YOU feel? [Those that give credence to Hitler probably wouldn’t care too much but that’s besides the point!]

The point I’m trying to make is that Jesus Christ HATES IT when somebody takes a PAGAN HOLIDAY, puts HIS holy name on it, and then ADVOCATES bowing down to IDOLS (adorned Christmas trees) and SINGING SONGS TO IDOLS:

He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake………..”

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas Tree……..”

EVEN the “Christmas songs” ABOUT Jesus Christ are ALL BLASPHEMOUS, in and of THEMSELVES……Need more proof? Visit the following website that breaks down the lyrics bit by bit and little by little: http://www.layittoheart.com/christmas.html

The very LAST point I want to make is THIS: The “Jesus Christ” that’s worshiped on December 25th every year is NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! Repeat: IS NOT the Jesus Christ of the bible! But instead is a FALSE, PAGAN, SATANIC type of JESUS CHRIST that the Roman Catholic Church worships as Helios, the SUN GOD and that apparently advocates lying to little children about Santa Claus! Now, tell me, would the real, true BIBLICAL Jesus Christ ever advocate lying to children? Didn’t think so! 

And Hint: Those aren’t really “halos” around Catholic figures’ heads, as they’re actually supposed to represent SUNS! Hence, Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the SUN, NOT **THE SON***! WAKE UP, FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea, with the help of Catholic bishops, Constantine took the Jewish religion, blended it with Pagan elements, and then called it “Christianity”.

In other words, Constantine turned the religion of God’s TRUE people INTO A LIE! Not to mention the Catholic Church INVENTED “Christ-Mass/Christmas” and “Ishtar/Easter” etc., as a way to CIRCUMVENT the TRUE holidays of Christ (Passover, Pentecost, Firstfruits, Trumpets, Tabernacles, etc.)

Notice how there’s only FIVE holidays in the “Christian calendar”, compared with the Lord Jesus’s SEVEN biblical holidays in the BIBLE’S CALENDAR?  

  • Christmas (based off of the Pagan Festival Saturnalia, which encouraged drunken orgies and lawlessness)

  • Easter (based off of the Pagan Festival of Ishtar, goddess of sex/fertility, whose symbols were “painted eggs” and “the rabbit”)

  • Valentine’s Day (based off the Pagan “Lustfest” called Lupercalia)

  • New Year’s (Like Christmas, based off the Pagan Festival(s) Saturnalia and Yule, which encouraged drunken orgies, etc.)

  • Halloween (based off of Samhain, which is/was more or less considered *institutionalized orgies and/or necrophilia*)

VS……….

7 REQUIRED Festivals of the Lord:

  • Passover

  • Feast Of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast Of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast Of Trumpets

  • Day Of Atonement

  • Feast Of Tabernacles

2 Minor (Optional?) Festivals:

  • Purim

  • Hannukah

Everything from the star on top of the tree (the “pentagram”) to Santa Claus to reindeer……there’s absolutely NOTHING biblical about December 25th! Not a SINGLE THING! You and I both have been warned! And may NONE of us (even ME, of all people) complacently, willingly or stubbornly insist on participating in this holiday EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN, so long as we all shall live! Amen. 

But in closing, there’s ONE last very point I wanted to make: that of Revelation. In the book of Revelation, Revelation chapter 11 is talking about the two prophets of God whom will prophecy (if literal days) 1,260 days. But at the end of those days, the Beast who ascends out of the pit will overcome them and kill them. And all the godless people on the Earth will be SO HAPPY when these two prophets are killed, that they will let their bodies lay in the street of what is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt.

Revelation 11:10 states: “And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth”. Does this NOT sound like a “Christmases of ALL Christmases” to YOU?

Not to mention the movie trailer for the movie called “The Big Short” (which hints at a future failing of the U.S. economy – pretty scary stuff, folks) and the upcoming TV series called “Lucifer”, which tries to shed Satan in a GOOD LIGHT! Folks, 2016 is going to get UGLY! VERY, VERY, **VERY** SPIRITUALLY UGLY! In fact, just LOOK at these two previews! 😦 [Lucifer is NOT God’s Son, by the way! JESUS IS!] 

And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, folks!!!!! That’s why it’s SO important for you to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ! Repent of any sins that need repenting of! Get your lives and your finances in order! Get rid of your complacency and your fears (and believe me, that goes just as much for ME as anyone!) Read your King James Bible (even on the days and times when you don’t feel like it). Meditate on it, fixate on it, memorize, apply it to your life!

I say this not to scare you but to warn you. 2016 is going to be B A D……..Very, very B A D!!!!!!!!! SO BE PREPARED!!!!!!!!! Be on your best spiritual guard! Satan will send his hoards and hoards of demonic operatives (both demonic and human) to try to destroy any vestige of the Lord’s people that he can find! But don’t let him win, folks! Stay strong! Stay VIGILANT for the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ and his Word! Do NOT bow down to pressure from the ungodly LEFT! And no matter HOW hard things get or how hard your life is, DON’T GIVE UP, FOLKS! Have a faith that’s SO STRONG that you’d be willing to die for it, if needed! And if you DON’T have that type of faith in Jesus, then PRAY to have that type of faith in Jesus!

Don’t care if people laugh and mock at you! Because very soon, everything on this Earth will pass away and a new heaven and a new Earth will be constructed by God the heavenly father! And soon, we will ALL be before the mighty Judgement Seat of Christ! And we will be judged for every idle word! Every thought, deed and action ever done in this Earthly life! And Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE will determine who’s names get recorded in his book of Life and who’s names are NOT recorded in the book of Life (his personal record book of faithful followers). Also: Do NOT take the Mark of the Beast when it comes time to buy and sell. It’s better to starve for the Lord Jesus Christ than to live FOR the Devil, so remember that, folks! May the BIBLICAL Lord Jesus Christ be with us ALL! Amen.
