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: 34-35Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him”.

Ephesians 6:9 “And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him”

Romans 2:11 “For there is no respect of persons with God”

Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus”

Acts 10:34, Ephesians 6:9, Romans 2:11, and Galatians 3:28 etc. all show us that Jesus is not a God of “partiality!” In other words, EVERYONE that believes in Him and OBEYS Him is EQUAL! And EVERYONE that sins against Him is JUDGED by Him for he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT Judge! So in other words, there IS no such thing in Jesus’s eyes as “Jew” or “Gentile”, those are MAN-MADE CONSTRUCTS!!!!!!

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? OFCOURSE NOT! He’s NOT gonna tell one set of people: “No pork! It’s an abomination unto you!” and then turn around and tell ANOTHER set of people in the future that they COULD have pork….IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!!!!! Think about it. If ONE set of people could ever say to Him: “Hey! That’s not fair! How come THEY get this but WE don’t?”, then he wouldn’t be God as he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT judge AND law-giver! 

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 and 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/obey 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!

How To Achieve The Fruits of the Holy Spirit:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ACTS 2:1-13:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord‘, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?‘ And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“.

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

Galatians 5: 22-23

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FAITH – complete trust or confidence in Jesus and/or his promises, even if not (yet) seen (Hebrews 11:6 says: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”).

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

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

Self-Application Study Guide Questions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

7). **FAITH**Hebrews 11:6 says: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

SIN PRIDE: THE CANCER DESTROYING AMERICA & THE WORLD FROM WITHIN

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, PROUD, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GodHaving a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”

–  2 Timothy 3: 1-5 [2nd book of Timothy, chapter 3, verses 1-5]

 

What is SIN? It is defined as: an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law

What is DIVINE LAW? Answer: a law that is believed to come directly from God. 

And what is PRIDE? Answer: a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

In short, “sin”, in and of itself, is the DELIBERATE OR UNINTENTIONAL violation of God’s law (the 10 commandments, etc.) Therefore, “sin pride” is TAKING PERSONAL PLEASURE IN SIN and being PROUD of it. (Do the words “Gay Pride” ring a bell, for example?)

The gay/transgender movement is the SPIRITUAL CANCER WHICH HAS TAKEN OVER THE LAND, HERE IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD. Look at any Gay Pride rally today (which should effectively be called SODOMY PRIDE, since what they’re advocating is SODOMY) and what do you SEE? The following:

  GAY PRIDE8 GAY PRIDE10 GAY PRIDE21 GAY PRIDE11

But ask many people today what “sin” IS or what the 10 commandments even ARE, many have never even HEARD of such things!

And what many people DON’T realize is that the whole entire Gay/Transgender Movement (in and of ITSELF) was DESIGNED by Satan and his demons in order to tear apart the concept of “traditional marriage” and the “traditional family”. It’s TRUE, folks……..Examine the following:

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

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene

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

Plus we are also now witnessing the “Me Generation”. During the 90’s and early 2000’s, parents were instructed to fill their kids with self-esteem, etc. But NOW, it’s come as a SEVERE price. Today’s young generation now feels ENTITLED….(as a whole). It’s all about THEM…..What THEY want, what THEY feel, what THEY think……..it is no longer about God/Jesus Christ and God’s written Word/the bible….

The elite falsely got many Christian parents back in the 90’s and early to mid-00’s to think that it was better if they did NOT raise their child in the faith from the time they were very little, but instead “let the child decide, when they got older”. And look where that got us, folks! A new generation of young people that does NOT have the fear OR honor of God/Jesus Christ in them, etc.! Scary, indeed!

Not to mention that many of those parents in question had lukewarm faith to begin with, which is WHY they ended up not raising their child in the faith, from the time when they were little. And by the time many of these parents DO try to talk to their kids about the faith/salvation in Jesus Christ, it’s too late, the child, at 12-18, has already made their mind up that there is no God, etc.

So essentially, what was happening there, is that the child, WHEN they were very young, saw firsthand that their parent(s) were a “nominal Christian” and didn’t really consider Salvation in Jesus Christ that important enough to teach them. And maybe some of these children even WANTED to learn about Jesus Christ from their parents/pastors but society, at that time, was trying to dumb down the schools/education system and dumb down the faith……even trying to go so far as to proclaim teaching your young child about faith when they were little was somehow “child abuse” of sorts.

So many parents and pastors caved in and complied with “secular society’s” demands, many having lukewarm faith themselves. So many a child in question grew up thinking,Well, I guess faith in Jesus Christ isn’t that important. I guess all people will go to heaven, someday, so it’s not really a big deal and that was that. The child then grew up to have a SECULAR view of the world and of Christian religion. Who’s fault is that, folks?

Facebook, Youtube and Instagram (in general) are just LOADED with “boasting statements” of “I have such a wonderful husband”, “I have x amount of subscribers”, “my kid graduated at the top of his class”, etc. And lets be honest. Most of us don’t even stop to think about what it really means (behind the spiritual scenes)……and that is, ONE person in the human race, by making those types of boasting statements, are (intentionally or even unintentionally), pitting themselves ABOVE others……as if to be “seen” by them in an extraordinary way…..

In fact, my soul weeps bitter tears for those with daily vlogs/those who undertake dangerous “Youtube challenges”…..especially when they make verbal statements such as “you guys are awesome”, “you guys are what I’m doing this for”, etc. In short, these poor people are the living, breathing example of John 12:43 which states: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God”

But again, even if someone had a CHRISTIAN daily vlog, I’d have to wonder at their motivations for doing so. Because Jesus Christ tells us in Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven”

But IF ONLY these poor souls realized how much Jesus Christ loves them. For John 3:16 SPECIFICALLY states the following: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life“. And if they’d put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ, INSTEAD of in Youtube or mankind, they’d find that the eternal love of Jesus Christ FAR SURPASSES any form of “temporal love” or appreciation given by man/mankind. For though those many subscribers help them rake in the $$$ and feel “valued”, those subscribers can NOT save that person’s soul from hell. ONLY Jesus Christ can do THAT….

Which brings me to my next point. The people of today are TOTALLY NARCISSISTIC (as a whole). They don’t CARE about the “sin(s)” in their life……There’s no sense of GUILT or SHAME, anymore……People are even OPENLY going to adultery sites these days, such as Ashley Madison, etc. Many young people today are bragging about how “drunk” they can get or how many people they’ve “layed”, or what hard-core drugs they can do, etc. People (as a whole) don’t seem to care about WHAT they do or WHO they hurt, in the process.

In fact, the following three articles HIGHLIGHT this point:

===========

(Plus, some people don’t even know what “sin” IS, sadly)….but in fact, the ones that KNOW they’re sinning against God/Jesus Christ? They’re PROUD of it……They FLAUNT IT…….they see NOTHING wrong with it and worse still, they JUSTIFY it, while also thinking that they’re ENTITLED to it…….yes, ENTITLED…….examine any “gay pride rally”, like I said or any of the following headlines down below: (Headlines that shock and horrify the “biblical mind”)

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/brother-and-sister-reveal-incestuous-relationship-live-on-spanish-tv-a6985356.html

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

What REALLY gets me about the news articles up above is THE DEGREE that the people in them JUSTIFY their actions and feel ENTITLED to them. Oh, we can’t help it, therefore, we should be able to INDULGE in one another/in our “sin” of incest! THE SIX PEOPLE ABOVE HAVE NO SHAME!!!! And the “secular world/society” is saying, Why SHOULD they have any shame about their deeds? What they are doing is RIGHT and JUST, in the world’s eyes!”

Reminds me of the passage in Isaiah 5:20-25 which states: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitterWoe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of IsraelTherefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still”

 

And remember, it’s a sign of the times that we’re living in the LAST DAYS, when people start calling good (i.e. the 10 commandments/God/the bible) “evil” and evil (i.e. sodomy/lust/incest/murder) “good”.

In fact, the devil’s even got a new buzzword for what society is now slowly starting to deem “justified incest”: G.S.A. (which stands for Genetic Sexual Attraction). Because the devil wants YOU, the reader, and EVERY human out there, to come to the mindset of, Oh….they can’t really help it…..it’s not like they were raised that way……oh…….I guess technically that they should be able to do this then, since they can’t help it“. [CAN’T HELP IT? REALLY??? ARE YOU SERIOUS? IS SOMEBODY POINTING A GUN TO THEIR HEAD, SAYING “PARTAKE YOURSELVES **NOW** IN INCEST OR ELSE?”] What comes NEXT, folks? Will people also soon start justifying cases such as the following?

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/man-shares-details-sexual-relationship-dolphin-article-1.1825434

They’ve ALREADY started justifying BIOLOGICAL MEN going into WOMEN’S RESTROOMS (Target, Obama administration) and vice versa. Plus I won’t even mention about the NO GENDER/GENDER-FLUID MOVEMENT, as most biblically-minded people realize that it’s a DIRECT ATTACK on God Almighty/the bible/the “traditional family”.

Folks, it’s not just SIN that’s taken over our nation here in America (and across the world) but rather, the PRIDE of sin. And in God’s Almighty eyes, the PRIDE of sin is practically worse than the sin ITSELF. Because to do something bad is ONE thing. But to do something bad and to FEEL GOOD/JUSTIFIED/ENTITLED about it? That’s a whole other thing, altogether.

Let us think back on the story of Cain and Abel in Genesis. And think about Cain’s “haughty” response to Almighty God in Genesis 4:9 “And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? Notice the PRIDE and the ARROGANCE in such a statement! Think how much DIFFERENTLY it would’ve been for Cain if he had fallen on his knees before the Lord and HUMBLY ADMITTED HIS SIN! Things might’ve played out differently, then.

Obama once remarked in one of his speeches that “we are no longer just a Christian nation”, which would imply “we are no longer a Christian nation”. In other words, he was stating that we are now a “multi-faith nation”. Think about those words for a bit. Think about the LONG-TERM spiritual implications, there. What he’s REALLY saying, behind the scenes, is that this great American nation, NO LONGER honors God/Jesus Christ the way it once did. That should send shivers down the spine of EVERY God-fearing American in this country (and even around the world!)

For NOW, we (as a nation) and even as a WORLD, have become likened unto CAIN, who sheepily replied onto Almighty God, I know not, am I my brother’s keeper? At ONE time, we were a God-fearing, God-honoring “ABEL”. And the Lord was pleased and BLESSED this nation. But now that SIN and more specifically, the PRIDE OF SIN, has overtaken this country and this world, we are now likened onto a “CAIN”. And the Lord’s Wrath was upon Cain. And so NOW, the Lord’s Wrath is upon America (and the world)…..ofcourse, it’s BEEN on America (and the world) for QUITE SOME TIME NOW and will soon reach a BOILING POINT (assuming it hasn’t, already!)

SATANIC KALI IN NY RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR1

But again, humans are prideful by nature. We WANT to feel good about ourselves, our jobs, our talents, our families, etc. We don’t WANT to believe that a holy, righteous God (Jesus Christ) would have the audacity to send US to hell over OUR sins against Him and against one another. However, when a person says to themselves MY Jesus would NEVER send a normal, everyday person to Hell, what they’re really doing is creating a FALSE JESUS THAT THEY’RE COMFORTABLE WITH. And that “false Jesus” is NOT biblical, and provides NO SALVATION. NONE.

Hebrews 12:29 states: “For our God IS a consuming fire”. 

So what does that MEAN, some might ask? It means that Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible) is HOLY. He has the power of the universe at his fingertips. And the FIRES OF HELL speak to HIS righteous holyness. Because in HIS righteous judgement, he will send ALL those whose names aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life to the LAKE OF FIRE. However, a person that dies between now and then (whose name isn’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life) will open up their eyes and discover their soul in HELL. But the fires of hell are NOT eternal…….Revelation 20:14 states: “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death”.

Translation? The fires of hell will merge INTO the LAKE OF FIRE. And the Archangel Michael once informed me (during a near-suicide attempt at age 19-21) that the fires of hell are about 10,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter and that the LAKE OF FIRE is 100,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell. Therefore, using spiritual and deductive reasoning, we can then know that the LAKE OF FIRE is about 1,000,000,000,000 times hotter than the flame of a small lighter. And lets face it…….the flame from a small lighter (if you hold your hand up to it) is INTENSE….So imagining something that’s a TRILLION times hotter than that, while also imagining the following two passages? I can’t even………

Matthew 13: 41-42 “The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth

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

This November should be a very interesting “election”, INDEED……if they even HAVE “the election”, that is. I can only imagine HOW MUCH worse it’s gonna get and HOW MUCH CLOSER JESUS’S 2ND ARRIVAL TO THE EARTH REALLY *IS*!

And with Jesus’s soon 2nd arrival on the Earth again being that much closer, so is the ANTICHRIST’S ARRIVAL on Earth (in fact, he’s probably already here!) The book of Revelation gives some VERY dire warnings in Revelation 13: 16-17:

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”

And OF these individuals that take/took The Mark, it is said the following, 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

So in conclusion, God’s WRATH is upon America & upon THE WORLD! And bad things are gonna happen, as a result……REALLY, REALLY BAD THINGS……(Terrorism, executions, famine, pestilences, FAILING ECONOMIES/FAILING WORLD ECONOMY, the stripping of free speech ALTOGETHER, earthquakes/other natural disasters, job firings, persecution, etc.) And out of the MIDST of those bad things, a one world global leader’s gonna arrive on the global stage. And he’s gonna “appear’ to be the answer to EVERYONE’S PROBLEMS!

EVERY single person that DOES NOT place their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ Almighty WILL be deceived by this global leader. He might even look like Jesus, sound like Jesus and even CALL himself Jesus, but he will NOT, I repeat….will NOT BE the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ from the bible! And ALL the world’s inhabitants that aren’t of Jesus Christ WILL think this man is the Messiah:

1). Muslims are awaiting the 12th Iman or the Madhi 

2). Jews (as a whole) are awaiting what THEY think will be their “Messiah” and don’t realize that Jesus Christ WAS/IS their prophesied Messiah

3). Buddhists are awaiting the 5th Buddha

4). Hindus are awaiting reincarnation of Kali/Shiva?

5). Christians are awaiting the Anti-Christ

Do you see now where I’m going with this, folks? ALL non-biblical Christians and other religions and people of NO RELIGION **will** be deceived by this man. And he **will** require ALL inhabitants of the Earth, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead, in order to be able to buy or sell. And whomever does NOT take this mark WILL be imprisoned/killed and/or beheaded. 

But let me reassure you: to die for Christ is GAIN…but to live for the Devil and the Mark of the Beast is ETERNAL DEATH IN THE LAKE OF FIRE…….So what if you go hungry or starve to death, while refusing the mark of the beast……..the Lord Jesus Christ shall SUPERNATURALLY SUSTAIN YOU, in mind, heart, body and spirit, if you continue to cry out to him, pray to him, obey him and trust him with ALL YOUR HEART!

And besides……buying food on the Anti-Christ’s “dime”? I wouldn’t recommend it. Cause who knows what types of chemicals, etc. will be in the Anti-Christ’s food. Even right now with all this “genetically-modified food” on the market, it’s really making me start to wonder. Because isn’t messing with the DNA of ANYTHING (be it an animal or a grain of corn) AGAINST God’s will? Think about it, folks! Plus it’s also funny that research is now showing that GMO’s cause cancer. Big surprise. We now live in a world where they (the elite) place $$$$ over consumer safety. Welcome to the world of the End Times, folks. And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, MARK MY WORDS! 

Therefore, you got to make a decision. Are you going to live for Jesus Christ and be made fun of, ridiculed, possibly fired from your job/persecuted/killed? OR are you going to “cave” to secular society’s demands that you feel PRIDE over your “sin(s)” and NOT feel any guilt or shame over them, thus, joining the MILLIONS of people who will soon be taking the Mark of the Beast, in order to feed themselves and their families (thus, DAMNING THEIR SOULS FOR ETERNITY?) The choice is up to YOU, folks! But don’t say I didn’t warn you! 

HERE…..in the link down below, a guy by the name of David J. Stewart goes into MUCH FURTHER DETAIL than I have and has written a MOST EXCELLENT ARTICLE on today’s topic of the PRIDE OF SIN/SPIRITUAL CANCER:

http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/terminal_cancer.htm

“Lord, please give all your people strength to endure in these End Times. Please sustain them physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Please keep them at ANY costs from taking the Mark of the Beast, ESPECIALLY parents with small children. Please protect them, guide them and watch over them, at ALL times. And most importantly, please give them the strength & endurance to suffer whatever persecution may befall them, in whatever form it may take, rather verbal or physical. Please bless them and keep them for all eternity. In Jesus’s name, Amen”. 

 

 

 

 

Morality Based on “Feelings” Is NO Morality AT ALL!

Back in the year 1985 or so, “morality” (in and of itself) seemed to be determined by the written Word of God (the bible). And then slowly through the “media” and “popular culture”, the written Word of God seemed to’ve become VAGRANT (“lost on the train tracks of human practice/history”) over the years.

By the year 1994 rolled around, things were beginning to “shift” DRAMATICALLY, as people were starting to “think” instead of “do”, as it pertains to the written Word of God. Around the year 1997, Ellen Degeneres came out as a “gay character” on the show called “Ellen”. [Interestingly and oddly enough, what does the word “Degeneres” remind you of, in the English language? Anyone?] This (in MY opinion) was kind’ve the VERY beginning stages of the “I was born this way” and “loud and proud/gay pride” movement among the “homosexual activists”. Because I don’t really remember hearing of any “gay pride parades” before then.

Those points aside, now look at the year 2015. They’ve legalized gay marriage in all 50 U.S. States, abortion and abortion clinics are running RAMPANT in today’s country, Satanism/New Age/Wicca is ON THE RISE, Jesus/bible mocking is on the TRIPLE RISE, plus the people of this country (as a whole) are now slowly being aggressively/subconsciously desensitized to pedophilia (look no further than the shows Toddlers & Tiaras, Dance Moms, Dancing with YT and Precision Dance Studios — which dresses young girls up in prostitute-like garb and the movie Lolita (enough said) or the movie called Bad Grandpa — where the grandson dresses up like a stripper, strips on stage and has MONEY thrown at him like he’s an actual hooker! SICKENING!)

In fact, many of today’s parents and PEOPLE IN GENERAL…….SEE NOTHING WRONG with the following 4 clips down below! And their “argument” for such a “positive viewpoint” of these clips is to “stop sexualizing this!” But yet, THEY are the ones sexualizing it by NOT seeing anything wrong with it! (We’re living in the times of the End, folks!)

The choreographers and judges THEMSELVES? THEY were the ones who originally decided it was a “good idea” to a) dress up these girls in prostitute-like garb, b) choreograph the dance routine to dirty, “nasty” music and c) choreograph the dance routines for the young girls to “twerk”, etc. And ya want to know what’s EVEN MORE sickening than all the above and the girls’ parents’ and other people LOUDLY CHEERING in the background?

The Dance Studios of today, in general, in FIERCE competition within one another to see WHAT dance studio can come up with the most sexualized, most raunchiest, most dirtiest routines with the YOUNGEST AGE(S)! DOES ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE NOT “SEE THIS” FOR WHAT IT “REALLY IS”? A blatant attempt on the “choreographer’s part” to try to DESENSITIZE people to this sort of thing? Look at how many people (namely, the parents) already see “nothing wrong” with this sort’ve thing! The desensitization process has already begun!

[And what’s more, on the show Dance Moms, many of the girls have already broken down IN TEARS, according to several Youtube clips! You can tell they don’t really want to be doing it but that their moms are forcing/strongly encouraging them to, just to be on the show! They’re NOT ONLY taking away their little girl’s childhood and innocence and using them for a “cash cow” but they’re also spiritually, physically, psychologically, mentally and emotionally ruining them, as well!

These girls weren’t just crying because of what ABBY was doing to them but what their OWN MOTHERS are doing to them! Making them be in a fierce, competitive, sexualized dance industry that they themselves (the girls) don’t actually want to be in! Have the mothers ever ONCE stopped to wonder about that or consider their own daughter’s TRUE feelings about the thing? One of the girls was saying in the Youtube clip, “I don’t want to do this anymore” to her mother.

And what did her mother say, in response? She more or less said, “Don’t let Abby do that to you, keep dancing!”, instead of actually LISTENING to her daughter, for once! And no doubt one of these days, when these girls grow older and realize what their moms did when they were younger — use them for fame and money — they’re no doubt going to RESENT THEM! I KID YOU NOT!]   

THESE CLIPS ARE ABSOLUTELY BEYOND DISGUSTING AND **IF** YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT SEES “NOTHING WRONG” WITH THEM, MAY THE LORD JESUS HAVE MERCY UPON YOUR VERY **SOUL**! [And yes, I HATE, HATE, HATE having to put the links to these clips on here but people MUST see the example of just how BAD things have become in this world!] 

But that goes into my next point: morality based on “feelings” is NO MORALITY AT ALL! I don’t care what ANYONE says!

Our laws are actually based on God’s laws: murder (“thou shalt not kill”), lying in court and/or to the police/FBI (“shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor”), stealing (“thou shalt not steal”), lust (“thou shalt not commit adultery”), envy (“thou shalt not covet..”), etc. And those right there make up the MAJORITY of “sins” committed by people in today’s world!

Take away God’s law – and our laws BASED off God’s law – and you’ve got NOTHING! For if morality was “subjective”, WHOM would get to decide what laws are made and how transgression of those laws would be imposed? What if ONE person thought stealing was wrong while ANOTHER person thought it was okay? Who would be right, in those regards, in the “subjective morality” model? Cause certainly they can’t BOTH be right! Do you get where I’m going with this, people?

But yet, that’s EXACTLY what many people in today’s country here in America (and even in the WORLD) — liberals and progressives, mostly — are trying to do, today. They’re more or less saying, “I don’t NEED you, God! I don’t NEED you, constitution of the U.S! I am my OWN moral compass and my OWN moral authority! Only *I* get to decide what’s right and wrong!”

Well, look at many of today’s serial killers, for instance. In THEIR mind, they were doing “nothing wrong” when they went out and killed someone/a group of people. And the active homosexuals in today’s world? They see “nothing wrong” with MOCKING THE ALMIGHTY IMAGE OF GOD **WITH** THEIR SIN OF **SODOMY**! And the judges and choreographers of the young girls dressed in prostitute-like garb? They saw “nothing wrong with it”. Do you get where I’m going with this, folks?

But just what if our law was done away with and there was “no law” (assuming the liberals and progs got their way) and each man got to decide for HIMSELF or HERSELF what was right and wrong? Again, WHOM would get decide what was right and wrong? How would transgression of the so-called law (or lack of law) be inforced/reinforced? What would we be able to use as a weight and measure system?

Hint: there WOULD be no weight and measure system! And as a result, people would be killing each other off, stealing each other’s money and materials possessions right and left and there would be NO END to the chaos! That’s WHY God put his law into action in the bible! Because WITHOUT it, there WOULD no humanity left still alive! (And likely, no animal, either!)

For if murder was no sin, for example, I highly doubt any one human would be spared alive, as ALL humans (rather they want to admit it or not) have probably been angry enough with someone to want to kill them at atleast ONE point in our lives! Thankfully, the Lord God gave each and every one of us a “conscience”!

In fact, most people know (after they’ve said a not so nice thing to someone, for instance) that the thing they said just moments earlier “wasn’t so nice”. But yet, “I’m sorry” are two of the most hardest words to say for most people, in today’s world! And I think that ties in with the human tendency (in general) to want to to try to BURY and HIDE our sins from others and from Almighty God!

Look at the Ashley Madison users, for instance. They logged on the “cheating website” because they saw NOTHING WRONG with it! In THEIR mind, they were committing what THEY thought was a “moral right” or “moral necessity”. But, our sins ALWAYS and FOREVER have a way of finding us out, DON’T THEY? As both Planned Parenthood & affiliates and Ashley Madison users discovered.

That’s DIRECTLY in line with Luke 8:17, “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad” and Jeremiah 16:17, “My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes”.

[[Although what a total mess that would be for someone who’s email was falsely put on there, only to have their spouse falsely think they committed a sin of adultery when they didn’t! In that case, may the Lord SWIFTLY clear that person’s name and have their marriage spared! Amen]].

But then again, the “subjective morality” model goes much, much deeper than that. Look at the choreographers and judges who “obviously” secretly prize “pedophilia”, for instance. They seem to find nothing wrong with it. And they claim they’re “giving the American people what they want”. However, can we ask this question? We MUST ask this question: could it be perhaps that THEY – the judges and choreographers – are secretly giving THEMSELVES what they want? And that they’re USING the choreography/dance/judging platform to GET AWAY WITH IT? In PLAIN SITE? WAKE UP, PEOPLE!!!!!

Pretty soon, we’ll more or less LIVE in such a world as that……….where each person gets to decide their OWN morality (or lack of it, should I say). And it’ll be pretty scary, INDEED! The DEPTHS that such people will go to, to live life “their way”, instead of “God’s way”. Look at the Burning Man Festival out in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, for instance. Each year, they “draw a line in the sand” and whoever crosses that line gets to be bound by NO MORALITY! ANYTHING GOES! **ANYTHING**! And this “Burning Man Festival” concept is spreading like “cultural wildfire” ALL THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!

I know I got saved by Jesus Christ during a near-death experience when I was little, around the age of 2. But when I got older, I’ve had times in my life when I lived FOR God/Jesus Christ and AGAINST God/Jesus Christ. So I can tell you right now that living AGAINST God/Jesus Christ comes with CONSEQUENCES. And in the cases of Planned Parenthood and Ashley Madison users, SEVERE CONSEQUENCES!

One thing I DO know for 100% sure is that GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICA! She has become like a BRAZEN, MURDEROUS WHORE of a NATION! And the abomination of her FILTH has reached all the way up to HEAVEN! The Lord can take it NO MORE! Something’s gotta give and that something is gonna be THIS VERY HERE AMERICAN NATION! MARK MY WORDS! For she is the QUEEN OF FILTH!

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow” – Revelation 18:7

And oddly enough, that passage can ALSO simultaneously apply to THE VATICAN! (The city that sits upon SEVEN HILLS! Sound familiar?)

But in conclusion, I’d just like to say that ANY type of so-called “morality” WITHOUT God/the bible is NO MORALITY AT ALL! For ANYTHING (and I do mean ANYTHING) that goes AGAINST God/the bible in ANY type of way is NOT MORAL but instead is SATANIC! Please keep this fact in mind as the Progs and Liberals try FURTHER and FURTHER to try to get YOU (the bible-believing, bible-ADHERING Christian) to believe/follow THEIR false, “subjective morality” (“it’s OK to have an abortion”, “it’s OK to be gay/live the gay lifestyle”, “gay marriage is just *posh*, “there’s no NEED for the bible and it’s precepts in today’s times!”, etc.) DON’T BELIEVE THEIR LIES, folks! THEY’RE SATAN’S HENCHMEN! THEY REALLY ARE!

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, PEOPLE! FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY/THE BIBLE AND NOT MAN/MANKIND! Don’t let demonically-deceived gay people “whine” to you that they “born that way”, don’t let a “trans person” FEED ON YOUR EMOTIONS and try to get you to “fully accept” trans people, don’t let the media’s image of “gay children” or “children with gay parents” emotionally manipulative you into accepting the gay lifestyle! I’M SERIOUS, FOLKS! The lies of Satan/demons/liberals/progs are SO SUBTLE, that UNLESS you’re in the Word of God, you won’t even SEE THEM and REALIZE those “VERY SUBTLE LIES” for what they really are! 

A lie doesn’t just have to be SPOKEN, people! It can also be VISUALIZED! We MUST NOT forget that fact! Non-verbal Youtube commercials which show a “gay, happy couple”, for instance. The commercial might not say many words but the images speaks a thousand words. The gay movement is NOTHING MORE than PROMOTION OF SIN! (And even the threat or death or imprisonment isn’t gonna stop me from saying so!)  

I think that’s what alot of non-Christians don’t get. They DON’T seem to understand why an imprisoned Christian’s faith grows EVEN MORE stronger and bolder than ever before! But in fact some of the MOST POWERFUL books of the bible were WRITTEN in “prison/imprisoned settings”. Why? Because when a Christian is living in the world, they have everything they need and so, as a result, they don’t seek God as much. But when everything’s suddenly taken away from them and they’re imprisoned (for whatever reason), just like the Jews in Nazi Germany, their faith is ALL they have to go on, at that point! Which is WHY their faith and their resolve becomes TEN TIMES MORE when imprisoned than not! [But again, that might be a different post for a different day].

Look at boys that “feel like girls” or “girls that feel like boys”. They are the epitome of “I think, therefore I am”. However, thinking does NOT produce you as something you’re NOT! Because no matter HOW MUCH cosmetic or sex-change surgery a person gets, they STILL can’t change their “genetic code”. For they are STILL a “genetic male” or “genetic female”. I for example REFUSE to call a man a woman or a woman a man! For God made us both male or female (respectfully).

And so to try to re-create ourselves as anything other than how Almighty God made us is just “mute”. And to feel that we are something that GOES AGAINST our natural God-given biology is just a “mental illness”, a “spiritual sickness”, if you will. Because the truth is, every person is BORN straight, like it or not. It’s an INNATE TRAIT. But AS people get older and some sort of “trauma” comes into their life, that’s when Satan and his demons are able to successfully “trick” some people into going AGAINST their natural, God-given biology. That’s the TRUTH about the matter!

Sadly, many people don’t want to hear it. They want to CONTINUE living their lives as if there’s no God and one of these days, they’re gonna have a rude, rude awakening when they realize the Christians that tried to warn them about their sin were in fact, RIGHT, and they themselves were WRONG! But by THEN, it’ll be too late for them! They’ll likely try to cry out to Jesus and claim things like, “but Jesus! I didn’t know! I didn’t know that being gay was a sin! I didn’t know that being a trans person was a sin! I didn’t know that dressing young girls up in prostitute-like garb for a live national dance competition was a sin!” But Jesus will say to them, “I never knew you, depart from me, ye workers of iniquity!” 

The truth is, there can BE no true morality without God because God IS morality! He’s the creator of it! And he’s SO righteous and SO holy, that he can’t let ANY unrepentant sin into heaven! So PLEASE people……..THINK TWICE before you think that YOUR opinion of “morality” is more important than GOD’S DECREE on morality! 

Many people say, “I’ve never killed anyone, I’m basically a good person, I’m good, so God should let me into heaven”. Ever stolen anything? Even as a small child? What does that make you? A thief. Ever lusted after someone you weren’t married to? Even ONCE? That makes you an adulterer. Have you ever envied something that belonged to another? That makes you a coveter. Ever said the Lord’s name in vain? Even ONCE? That makes you a blasphemer. And that’s just FOUR of the 10 commandments!

Therefore, we’re ALL sinners and we’re ALL in need for forgiveness of our sins! Forgiveness of our sins is by grace through faith + obedience. But in order to accept Jesus’s sacrifice for our sins, we must REPENT of our sins! That means, give them up and stop doing them! And then, immediately upon believing, we must (as a further act of obedience), get full-water-immersion baptized in the name of Jesus Christ!

For that represents the ceremonial washing away of sins, the public declaration of faith, and represents becoming “born again” of water and of spirit! It’s also the point in time where we fully RECEIVE the gift of the Holy Spirit/the Spirit of Truth & Spiritual Discernment and DIE to our old way of life! And then, after that, we’re to obey the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, celebrate in the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts and 7th day Sabbath (which is SATURDAY) and to Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” – Matthew 28:19-20

Be DOERS Of The Word And NOT Just Hearers, ONLY!

Believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for ANYONE, here!

We can know every word of scripture there is to know………but if we don’t DIRECTLY APPLY what we know about the Word of God to our LIVES, then the Word of God has NO true *root* in us; in our mind, heart, body or SOUL!

James 1: 19-25 in the New Testament states: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” 

In other words, James 1:19-25’s telling us not just to READ about the Word of God but to APPLY the Word of God DIRECTLY to our lives!

The Written Word of God (The Bible) tells us to do MANY things! For example, we are to:

  • Help those less fortunate than us. When you pass by a homeless person (rather or not they have a sign asking for money/food), do you actively GIVE them a meal or money for some food, for instance?
  • Preach the gospel of Salvation/Jesus Christ to others. Are you actively telling others about Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua and how he’s the ONLY way to Salvation, in some way, shape or form? Be it a blog, ministry, Youtube videos, in person testimony, etc.? 
  • Forgive those who’ve hurt us. Have you forgiven all the people who’ve hurt you? If not, have you PRAYED to be ABLE to forgive them? The bible says that if WE don’t forgive OTHERS for things they’ve done against US, that the Lord also won’t forgive OUR “sins/trespasses” against HIM/ALMIGHTY GOD!
  • Get full-water immersion baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. As soon as we truly BELIEVE in Jesus Christ and his gospel, we should desire to get full-water-immersion baptized in his name and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit! 
  • Have no idols or graven images! Have you gotten rid of that Buddha or Krishna statue? That golden “trophy”? The dream catcher? Carved images? Hung paintings of this or that on the wall? Statues (EVEN IF and *ESPECIALLY IF* they’re *Catholic saints/DEMONS*?) Images of dragons, Darth Vader, Harry Potter characters, etc? 
  • Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ AND his words! Have you TRULY trusted Jesus Christ with your LIFE? Would you TRULY trust Jesus Christ to get you through THE MOST difficult situations in your life such as witnessing to homosexuals, knowing exactly what to do if and when someone points a gun at your head, etc.? And do you trust that the bible is 100% sure and that everything will come to pass as the Lord SAYS it will come to pass?
  • Love our neighbor as ourselves. Have you hated anyone recently? If so, you haven’t been truly applying the written Word of God to your life! 
  • ETC. ETC., YOU GET THE POINT!

And then, Matthew 25: 14-3o, we get the Parable of the Faith Servant Vs. Disobedient Servant and it goes like THIS:

For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 

Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 

After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 

His lord said unto him, 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. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, 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.

Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”. 

In this case, “talents” is referring to ancient biblical “gold or silver coins” (as far as I know). But in MY opinion, it can also have double-meaning. In TODAY’S terms, the “talents” COULD be money in SOME cases, but in many others, it can also mean “talents” and “abilities” (IN GENERAL).

The bible says in Matthew 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey“.

So in other words, in the parable, each man was given talents, according to his “ability”. What does “ability” mean in this case? Does it mean workmanship ability in the temporal working world? Or is it talking about workmanship ability in the SPIRITUAL world? Or could it be a combination of BOTH? The bible doesn’t really specify. But there’s no doubt in my mind that if Jesus were to speak this parable to the modern day world of 2015, that he’d be referring to BOTH.

Romans 12: 6-8 states: Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness”. 

Truth be told, we ALL have different talents & abilities. And it’s how we USE those talents and abilities to further the kingdom of God on Earth that matters and that’ll also show WHERE we’ll stand with God/Jesus Christ on the fateful Day of Judgement!

For example, are you good at writing? Start a blog, write a book, produce Facebook notes about Jesus/Salvation, etc. Are you good at photography? Use photography to GLORIFY God’s creation! Are you a good public speaker? Get involved in politics or podcasting/radio or another public forum, in order to glorify the God of the bible! Do you have the power of persuasion? Perhaps street preaching might be good for you.

Are you good at learning and/or speaking foreign languages? Perhaps a missionary trip’s in store for you. Are you good at mathematics? Perhaps the Lord God wants you to use your mathematical abilities to talk about the MATHEMATICAL IMPOSSIBILITY of anything other than Jesus Christ BEING the fulfilled Messiah of Mankind [as over 330+ Old Testament Messianic prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament…….the statistical chances that even ONE man could simultaneously fulfill even just 48 of these, is ASTRONOMICAL BEYOND COMPARE!] 

Are you artistically gifted? You could use your art to GLORIFY God by illustrating Christian books or stories, creating beautiful Christian bible verse cards or creating 3D animated Christian-themed movies or videogames, etc. Are you gifted at singing? You could use your good singing voice to GLORIFY God and to USE your beautiful God-given voice to motivate others to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth! You get the picture……..

But basically, we are use our “spiritual gifts” and “talents” in order to bring HIM glory and in order to FURTHER the Kingdom of God on Earth! And remember that the Kingdom of God on Earth lives WITHIN us! We are to be the EMBODIMENT of that Kingdom! 

Because remember, church is not a place we “go to”, for we “ARE” the church! We, the body/assembly of believers are “the church”! Therefore, we are not “to GO to church”, we are to BE “the church!”

That’s essentially what it means to be a DOER of the written word of God (the  bible) and not just a HEARER, ONLY! 

I hope and pray that ALL who read this will become DOERS of the written Word of God (the bible) and not just hearers, only! Amen. 

 

 

Why Christians Have Lost the “Culture War”, Thus Far………

As the world and society gets more sinful BY THE DAY, many Christians out there are somewhat shocked & astounded as to WHY that is so. Quite frankly, it’s DUE to a) bible prophecy of the End of Days and b) biblical-roots Christians NOT taking a true stand for their faith/the bible and just letting the LEFT walk ALL OVER THEM! In fact, I can think of 22 different cases right off the bat where Christians (as a whole) gave the personal & political response of SILENCE (as a whole), as each one of these cases only FURTHER damaged mainstream conservative Christian culture.

1). 1973 Roe Vs. Wade : Abortion (Silence).

2). Prayer being taken out of schools (Silence).

3). Rise of LGBT Agenda (Silence).

4). Rise of Islam (Silence).

5). Attack on the American flag (which was founded on Christian values/principles) – Silence.

6). Rise of Counterfeit Christianity (Silence).

7). Rise of Christians who support LGBT Rights (Silence).

8). Christian business sued by LGBT Activists (Silence).

9). Attack on Christianity by our OWN Gov’t (Silence).

10). Ecumenicalism in the Churches (Silence).

11). Pro-homosexual Agenda in the Schools (Silence).

12). “Politically Correct: No Talk of Jesus” (Silence).

13). 501-c3 Tax-Exempt Status for Churches/Wards of State (Silence).

14). Abortion promotion/Planned Parenthood Sex Ed in the Schools (Silence).

15). Coexist Movement/”Any god but Jesus” (Silence).

16). Prohibition of Prayer in Public Places (Silence).

17). Christians getting fired over “Facebook posts” about Jesus, etc. (Silence).

18). Common-Core Education in Schools/Dumbing Down Our Children Here in America (Silence).

19). The Catholic Church not disclosing their wealth/finances (Silence).

20). The Catholic Church openly worshiping Lucifer & having had created a FALSE/PAGAN CHRISTIANITY (Silence).

21). The Catholic Church worshiping idols and “saints” (which are actually DEMONS in disguise) – Silence.

22). The blatant attack on Christianity in music, movies, books, TV shows, etc. (Silence).

Though there are MANY, MANY more that I haven’t listed, those are 22 cases ALONE where Christians (as a whole) DID NOT rise up and STAND UP FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN! Instead of standing up FOR their beliefs, they let the non-believers and/or those of different religions walk all over them and squash them like bugs, metaphorically and spiritually speaking. So it’s really NO WONDER that hardly anyone truly respects Christians, today.

A famous man once said (Alexander Hamilton, perhaps?) “He who stands for nothing falls for anything” and OH how true that is, in today’s world.

People are always secretly “testing” Christians. A homosexual will see if they can try to get a Christian to eventually “agree” with their gay/sodomite lifestyle OR will try to openly destroy a Christian person’s business. A person of a different religion will try to see if they can get the Christian to believe they worship the same god (think Muslims, mostly). A person that likes to party alot will try to see if they can get a Christian drunk atleast ONCE, in order to make them fall. And so on and so forth.

But the truth is, Christians aren’t truly respected (as a whole) in this country, anymore. All one has to do is browse through today’s many news headlines or turn on the TV or look at 98% of modern day movies to confirm this fact. And while a huge part of it IS due to bible prophecy, like I said, the other part of it is actually something that likely COULD’VE been helped (even if only a little bit and even if only temporarily); for if biblical-roots Christians started standing up for/had stood up for their faith in Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty and the bible and its precepts and started pushing back against all the “media onslaught” against them, things would start to change (even if only for a little while).

Lets face it. One of the ONLY reasons the homosexual movement has been so successful is DUE to the fact of all the biblical-roots Christians out there (as a whole) not standing up for their faith and making a stand. Bit by bit and little by little, in just 30 years time, we went from a highly conservative society that never even “talked” about “gay”, to now being a society where a man can kiss another man on LIVE TELEVISION, LGBT Activists get married and adopt, biblical-roots Christianity is bastardized and pro-lifers get physically attacked on a daily basis and it’s just like “oh well”. Plus I won’t even mention all the “transgender media ONSLAUGHT”, as of late.

But I guess the point I’m trying to make is that “lukewarm Christians” (as a whole) have only managed to SPEED UP bible prophecy in the making, NOT slow it down. Because honestly at THIS rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Yeshua/Jesus Christ returns this year or next year (though the bible specifically says no man knows the day or the hour). And one thing’s for sure: we need to get our lives in order and need to get right with Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty. Because at the current rate of ACCELERATION of bible prophecy, I know personally and spiritually speaking that our time here left on Earth is short. Someday, ALL of mankind will stand before a holy, divine judgement seat of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty, someday. Where will YOU stand on that fateful day?

What’s really, really sad to me is that all the people out there who “joke” about hell and Jesus and the bible? On the Day of Judgement, it won’t be a “joke” anymore……they will come to see their eternal reality…….and then, o then, how they will desperately cry out in fearful tears of agony and ask Jesus to please forgive them for their previous *perpetual* earthly mocking of/open rejection of him……..but by then, it’ll be too late……….their fate will be sealed for eternity……

Another sobering thing to think about is all the Christians out there that follow “Counterfeit Christianity”……the Christianity that “claims” it’s based on the bible (Catholic-roots Christianity) but actually ISN’T……..Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7: 21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”. 

So what does that mean in plain English, you might ask? It means that many modern-day “Christians” will be eternally cast out from Jesus Christ and the angels…….FOREVER. Why? Because while living on the Earth, they followed the traditions of man, instead of the traditions of God.

In the bible, Yeshua/Jesus Christ gave warning after warning after warning about how one should follow the bible/mandates/traditions of God, rather than traditions of man.

So that begs of question: what are the traditions of God and what are the traditions of man? Lets examine………

God’s tradition/mandates/commands:

  • 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday — please remember that a Jewish/biblical day begins at sunset the night before — therefore, Friday sundown to Saturday sundown is the TRUE biblical Sabbath)
  • 7 Annual Feasts outlined in Leviticus 23: Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Tabernacles, Pentecost, Day of Atonement, Feast of Trumpets (which were celebrated by ALL Christians/Jews around Jesus’s 1st time on Earth!)
  • Love thy enemies, bless those who curse you, pray for those who hate you
  • Make a disciple of all nations
  • Follow and APPLY the 10 commandments to one’s life
  • Praise God/Yeshua continuously for all he’s done for you/all of mankind
  • Praise God before every meal
  • Get full-water immersion baptized IMMEDIATELY upon first believing in Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty
  • We are saved by grace through faith (and will be judged for our works, accordingly)

Man’s tradition/mandates/commands:

  • 1st Day Sabbath (Sunday) — please keep in mind that Constantine, a HUMAN MAN — with the help of CATHOLIC BISHOPS — changed the Sabbath Day from Saturday, the 7th day, to Sunday, the 1st day of the week, and that there is NO biblical reference for this!
  • Man’s Holidays: Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, Easter — which were not only NOT sanctioned by God/Jesus Christ in ANY type of way, but also have NO biblical reference for observance!
  • Curse thy enemies, insult those who insult you, don’t care at all about those who hate you
  • Hide behind a church’s 4 walls and GO “to church” instead of BEING “the church”
  • The 10 commandments and Old Testament NO LONGER APPLY
  • Baptism is no longer necessary OR it can be delayed for MORE THAN A YEAR!
  • We don’t need to thank God since he already knows we’re thankful
  • Fasting and/or praying before meals is no longer necessary
  • We are saved by Works, alone (Catholic leanings)

Notice the difference, there?

And again, not trying to be hateful or judgmental there…..I’m only here stating the true facts of the bible vs. today’s “religious culture” because I LOVE ya’ll and don’t want any man, woman or child in today’s “Christianity” to be deceived!

Many people want to think that Christmas is celebrating Christ’s birth but we’re never actually told ANYWHERE in the bible by Jesus to celebrate his birth, ONLY his death/resurrection/ascension to heaven. Honestly. Show me just ONE verse where Jesus tells his disciples to celebrate his birth, if you can. Just ONE. Hint: You won’t find it. While you’ll find passages detailing Jesus’s birth and of the 3 wisemen bringing him gifts, you will never see ONE verse in the bible that COMMANDS us to celebrate his birth. Don’t you think that if Jesus Christ truly wanted us to celebrate his birth AND death, that he would’ve mentioned it somewhere?

And YES……Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty being born into human form is a great, miraculous WONDERFUL thing…….and a TOTAL MIRACLE of God, in and of itself………and is cause for “celebration” in our minds and hearts. However, the bible gives NO indication that we’re meant to “formally celebrate it” by any means of a “holiday” or like thing. And not only that, but Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty is a HECK of alot more than just a helpless babe in a manger. He is the ALPHA & OMEGA, The First & The Last!

On the OTHER hand, no research shows that Jesus was born anywhere around the time of December, in and of itself. And not only that but what Christmas actually DOES celebrate is the Winter Solstice and birth of Yule/Mithras and death of Tammuz (who was later turned into a “god”of sorts).

Don’t believe me? Examine.

 

 

 

 

Is Morality Subjective?

Many people have often been heard saying that “one doesn’t have to believe in God to be a good person”. Well, define what being a “good person” is. Most people would say “I pay my taxes, I’ve never killed anyone, I donate to charity, I obey all traffic laws, etc.” And while all of those things are GOOD, all of our human laws are actually BASED on God’s moral law!

“I pay my taxes” – Jesus Christ said in the bible “give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and give to God what is God’s”

“I’ve never killed anyone” – the 6th commandment says “thou shalt not kill”

“I donate to charity” – the Oliviet Discourse given by Jesus on the Mount of Olives in New Testament says that we are to “give to others less fortunate than us”

“I obey all traffic laws” –  the bible says we are to “treat others the way we’d like to be treated”

So essentially, most of human laws are based on God’s moral law. Because lets face it, WITHOUT God’s moral law to GUIDE our human law, there WOULD be no mortality in today’s world, think about it!

Imagine for a minute if God’s law “didn’t exist” and that there WAS no “divine law” by which to base our human laws on…..WHO would decide what laws to make? HOW would those laws be enforced? What would be the consequences for transgressing those laws? By WHAT measure would we humans judge ourselves by?

If there was no consequence for killing, for example, the whole world probably would’ve killed each other off by now. Or if SOME humans thought “killing” was a crime and some didn’t, WHO would get to decide if “killing” was a crime or not? And HOW would the transgressing of the law against “killing” be enforced?

Truth is, if we never had God’s law as a moral code by which to make our OWN laws, we would be LOST as a nation and as a world, today! Because in THAT case, morality would be “subjective” and each person would get to decide for THEMSELVES what was “moral” or not. Imagine what type of messed up world we’d be living in, if that were the case. You’d have serial killers who would see “nothing wrong” with killing people. You’d have abusers who would think “nothing was wrong” with abusing people (and animals). You’d have people thinking there was “nothing wrong” with stealing other people’s money and so on and so forth.

And NOBODY in that type of society would be punished for their crimes, because, hey, “morality is subjective”, right?

If morality is “subjective”, by WHAT measure would we measure ourselves by? Answer: we would HAVE nothing by which to truly measure ourselves by. That’s WHY God created his divine law in the Old and New Testaments. He wanted us to have a moral code, a divine measuring stick by which to measure ourselves by. He knows and wants what’s best for us.

Most people in this country (America) and in this world have decided they “don’t NEED God”. And IN so doing, God’s Wrath is now upon America and the world. Which is why he’s partially removed himself from our current state of affairs as in: “okay, you guys think you don’t need me anymore? okay, let me remove a part of my divine protection from the world and see just how you guys do on your own”.

Back in the 40’s and 50’s when people loved God, our nation was prosperous. But now, in the year 2014, when our nation “no longer seems to love God anymore”, we’re now facing a $100 TRILLION national deficit. $100 T R I L L I O N. Is that any coincidence? I think not.

And once gay marriage is FULLY recognized in all U.S. States, what will stop people from asking for commune marriages, incest marriages, pedo marriages, bestiality marriages, etc.? Like, LITERALLY? There’s ALREADY been a 3-way throuple “marriage ceremony” in this country. Imagine the possibilities when such “marriages” become LEGAL!

Our kids today here in America are quite literally confused as HECK, (just look at what seems to be the “skyrocketing” rate of “transgenderism, confused gender identity, and what have ya). With all these conflicting messages being thrown at them in the public schools and in the media, while at the same time, having a “pro-sin/pro-homosexual agenda” shoved down their throats, it’s NO WONDER kids these days are so “gender confused” and what have ya.

And to top it all off, conservative parents are often penalized (either by the U.S./state court system and/or school/school boards themselves) when they try to opt their children OUT of such “education”. What is this world coming to? It’s ONLY gonna get worse, people! So be prepared!

And while it might “seem” like I’m judging here, I’m only shedding light on what’s going on here in America, today. It almost seems like people are too afraid to talk about what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes. But we MUST talk about it, people! We MUST! Otherwise, we unwittingly let the adversary and his minions win, by default.

The reason the “gay movement” was even so successful in the first place is because true, bible-believing Christians became “afraid” and didn’t fight back! (And by fight back, I don’t mean any type of physical assault, I mean an honest, Christ-centered dialogue that explains why homosexuality is un-natural/sodomite-like behavior).

Satan/Satanism is tied in with homosexuality/sodomy and witchcraft, plus gay marriage is what the Church of Satan considers to be a “sacrament”. Don’t believe me? Check out the following article:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/satanic-temple-leader-seeks-religious-exemption-to-pro-life-laws-offers-to

Look at the following images from “gay pride” parades and/or publications:

DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE8 DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE12  GAY PRIDE23DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE5 DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE9 DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE3 DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE6

And examine the following photo:

SAME SEX COUPLES MAKE OUT ON GRAVE2

Plus you REALLY got to ask yourself this: If people were “born gay” as they claim, why have they not yet found a “gay gene”? Science articles with the headline “gay gene found” ALWAYS have in the articles “these genes MAY cause homosexuality” and/or “these combinations of genes MAY cause homosexuality” but they never have a DEFINITE gene that FOR 100% SURE beyond all reasonable doubt causes homosexuality in people. That’s because there IS no gay gene, folks! And there never have been nor will there ever BE! Even this pro-gay activist herself admits there is NO GAY GENE for homosexuality in the following article:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene

And in the preceding article, another homosexual activist admits that the “purpose” of fighting for gay marriage is to DESTROY MARRIAGE, ALTOGETHER!

http://illinoisfamily.org/homosexuality/homosexual-activist-admits-true-purpose-of-battle-is-to-destroy-marriage/

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: living a life that’s COUNTER to Jesus Christ and his commandments in the bible is a life without morals and a life lived for Satan. One does not have to BE a Satanist to be considered a Satanist, in God’s eyes.

However, we ALL have sin in our lives (rather we choose to live for Jesus Christ or not). Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Translation? NONE of us is perfect! We ALL sin from time to time! We’ve ALL made  mistakes in our lives! However, the GOOD NEWS is that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for mankind’s sins at his crucifixion! And all those folks who put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ Almighty, get baptized in Jesus’s name and develop a TRUE spiritual relationship with him are going to be saved from any eternal condemnation of their sins!

That might seem “foreign” to some and hard to wrap one’s brain around. But John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life“. And Jesus Christ was willing to be beaten, mocked, tortured, flogged, laughed at, spit on, ridiculed, crowned with a crown of thorns, pierced, etc. just so that WE (mankind) could be forgiven of our sins/transgressions against God the Heavenly Father/The Great Creator and assured an eternal spot in Paradise. And there’s no greater love than that, people! NONE! That’s the SINGLE most greatest act of love throughout the ENTIRE UNIVERSE!

The truth is, God loves ALL of his creation, but he does NOT love the sin in people’s lives and he sure as heck doesn’t love PERPETUAL SIN in people’s lives, such as when people decide they want to permanently thumb their nose at God and indulge in their hedonistic desires, for example!

And when some people out there say: “Jesus accepts that I’m gay”, that’s like saying “Jesus accepts me being a serial killer and sees nothing wrong with it”. Do you see what I’m getting at, here? Those who believe that Jesus ACCEPTS a gay/sodomite lifestyle are very sadly deceived by Satan and his demons! For NOWHERE in the bible, Old to New Testament will you find a SINGLE PASSAGE that “OK’s” homosexuality and homosexual behavior. None. Which is WHY the Church of Satan calls homosexuality/homosexual “marriage” a “sacrament”. Think about it, folks! 

However, when Jesus was crucified, he died for the forgiveness of ALL of mankind’s sins, not just SOME of them! (But we must ACCEPT Jesus’s free gift of salvation by praying for forgiveness of our sins and fully REPENTING of them.

Otherwise, there can BE no salvation without repentance! And if one dies without ever having truly accepted Jesus Christ into their heart and lives and REPENTING of their sins (ALL of their sins, not just SOME of them), their only path in the afterlife is going to be eternal condemnation in the FLAMES! I’m sorry folks but that’s the brutal reality!) 

So when Jesus Christ gave us EVERYTHING (during/right after his crucifixion), why do we, as a global humanity IN GENERAL, turn around and give him NOTHING? Nothing but disbelief, mockery, hatred, misunderstanding?

The attitude of today’s world seems to be: “why SHOULD I have to believe in God?”, as if believing is a type of “chore” or something!

Most people do not even want to entertain the mere POSSIBILITY that God exists! Why? Because if God is real, then the Devil and demons are real. And if the Devil and demons are real, then hell and the lake of fire must be real. And if hell and the lake of fire are real, then God’s JUDGEMENT must be real. And if God’s Judgement is real, then they KNOW they must change their lives or suffer the consequences for eternity! And lets face it, most people are IN LOVE WITH their sins and don’t want to give them up!

Plus the thought of hell and/or the eternal lake of fire is honestly TERRIFYING for most people, when they truly sit down and think about it! But they don’t even like to think about it, so they just try to throw it to the back of their mind, trying to distract themselves in any which way they can from God’s eternal truth in the bible!

They do yoga meditation, drugs, alcohol, fixate on the latest movies/celeb news, try out Wicca or other religions, ANYTHING to distract themselves from the truth of the bible! They try to tell themselves over and over again that the bible’s not true, that it’s just a big “fairytale” and what not. Actually, they’re rather “hoping” it’s a fairytale.

But they’re not 100% sure if it’s really a “fairytale” or not because there’s SO many Christians in the world! They know subconsciously that there must be a REASON why so many people believe in and have “faith” in God Almighty…..and whenever they come across a person that has “faith” in God Almighty, they’re a little bit worried because they know if the bible IS true (and it is, I assure you!) that that person is headed for eternal Paradise while they themselves are headed for eternal flames! And that’s when many of them get ANGRY at God as in: “I have to BELIEVE in you just to be SAVED by you? What crockus!”

But sadly, these folks don’t realize the bigger picture and that’s this: God Almighty is the CREATOR of all life and everything on this universe. And he LOVES his creation. And he wants to have a spiritual relationship with all his creation. But he can’t do that if a person won’t let him! Imagine how YOU would feel if YOU created something and that something that you PROUDLY created and were proud of wanted to have NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU, in spite of you trying for years and years to “get through” to that something! It would hurt, wouldn’t it?

Some want to tout evolution as a reason not to believe in God. Well, if evolution were true (and I assure you, it’s NOT), who or what created the ape-like things? Have you ever stopped to think about that? Some say we all came from a fish or an ancient bacterium or what not. But if one studies cell biology and genetics IN DETAIL, it’s virtually IMPOSSIBLE for all life to spring forth from one single bacterium. And besides, if THAT were true (and again, I assure you it’s NOT), then who or what created the single bacterium?

Did the single bacterium just jump off the page out of NOTHING and create ITSELF? How is that even possible? For SOMETHING would’ve had to create the materials to CREATE the single-celled bacterium to create the rest. There is evidence ALL OVER THE UNIVERSE for a creator, THE creator of all life. It’s just that many people don’t want to see it since seeing the “evidence” for God Almighty would force them to change their lives and they don’t want to change their lives, pure and simple.

And not only that but there’s many “holes” in the *theory* of Evolution. First of all, there have been ZERO inter-generational fossils found since the *theory* of Darwin/Wallace. ZERO. And the one they CLAIMED they’ve found most recently later proved to be “fake”. Secondly, mutations are actually BAD things……for example, Down Syndrome is caused by a “mutation” in the gene manufacturing system.

Therefore, it stands to reason that mutations have NOTHING to do with “survival of the fittest”. Thirdly, if we came from “apes”, then why are “apes” still here, if we “evolved” from them? Shouldn’t EVERY “ape” have evolved into a human? Think about it, folks! The “weaker apes” also should’ve died off LONG BY NOW, because hey, it’s “survival of the fittest”, right?

Fourthly, why are humans not STILL evolving? Why don’t humans have wings or why can’t cats talk? Why do we have nothing more advanced (for street driving) than the automobile/motorcycle/ATV/etc for the last 80 some years? Shouldn’t we have LONG developed “flying cars” by now (the kind from Back to the Future II?) Because hey, afterall, “once evolving, always evolving”, right?

Fifthly, Darwin stated that his theory “wouldn’t hold water” if any complex organs were discovered in single-celled bacteriums. Well, guess what folks, THE EYE is a complex organ and bacterium were recently discovered to have had “eyes”. So, in Darwin’s own words, his *theory* of Evolution “holds no water”, folks!

And once the “theory” of Evolution of debunked to people, many people try several OTHER means to stamp out God and his existence. “But why is there evil in the world? Why do kids get cancer or Down’s syndrome?” Truth is, when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, all of mankind after that inherited a “sin nature”. We live in a fallen world and the consequence of us living in a fallen “sin nature” world are a result of that. Not to mention that many people turn their backs on God and are indifferent to his “divine laws”, which is WHY you see so much evil in the world today. People turn their backs on God in today’s world and then wonder why the world is going to hell in a handbasket!

As to why God would give a kid cancer or allow a kid to be born with Down Syndrome? Well, lets face it, sometimes what originally appears as a downfall can be a blessing in disguise. And let me explain what I mean by that. Kids with cancer……yes, they may suffer somewhat in the short run, but in the long run, they get to go be with Jesus Christ someday and the angels, so how could THAT ever be a bad thing? And kids and people with down syndrome? They always seem so happy all the time whereas the rest of the human populace seems so miserable and “restless” all the time.

The truth is, SATAN is the true cause for all the evil going on in the world today and all the genetic abnormalities and what have ya. So why is it always God Almighty that people want to blame when it’s SATAN they should instead be blaming? Afterall, SATAN is the cause of Eve eating the forbidden fruit, NOT GOD ALMIGHTY! God Almighty NEVER tempts ANYONE! Think about it, folks!

Satan is the cause for the high murder and divorce rate, Satan is the cause for infidelity and all the evil/godless acts we see in our news today, etc. Because while God the Heavenly Father (through his holy Son Jesus Christ) wants what’s BEST for us, Satan wants to DESTROY US FROM WITHIN! (And if ya ask me, I’d say he’s doing a pretty good job of it, the world gets more eviler BY THE DAY!)

The truth is, a person can use just about any excuse in the book not to believe in God/Jesus Christ Almighty or the holy, divine, inspired words of the bible. But at the end of the day, God Almighty still exists. He’s EVERLASTING! And no amount of “theological” or “intellectual argument” is going to make him go away, folks!

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

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church & The Vatican, Part 5:

The Lord’s BIBLICAL TRUTHS:

“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” – Matthew 7:21

“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?” – Matthew 7:2

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

“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” – Matthew 7:13

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” – Matthew 7:14

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

For many years, I had often pondered the meaning of the above passages. Matthew 7:13 sounds like ALOT of people go to “eternal condemnation” after they die. So I had always wondered: “if MANY people are going to go to eternal destruction when they die, what was the point of Jesus being crucified for, then?” And it wasn’t really a question that was mocking Jesus or the sacrifice he MADE for all of mankind, it was just a question wondering WHY so many people would go to eternal destruction when they die.

And over a period of SEVERAL years, the Lord FINALLY revealed the answer to me: it wasn’t that he CHOSE to send these people to eternal condemnation but that they themselves CHOSE the path to go there over the course of their lifetimes! “But HOW, Lord?”, I’d ask. And it was over the course of SEVERAL months of study that the answer became crystal clear to me…..

Starting in the BEGINNING chapter of Genesis, we read about how the Lord created the heavens and the Earth (and consequently, all life on Earth) in 6 days and then in Genesis 2:2-2:3, we read: “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made”.

So right off the bat, I’ve ALWAYS secretly wondered: “if the Lord rested on and blessed the SEVENTH day, why do practically all the churches today worship on the FIRST day of the week?” Something about that has ALWAYS felt deadly WRONG to me! So I asked a Catholic friend (about the only “Christian” friend I had at the time) why that was, and she said the Catholic Church had changed the Sabbath day from Saturday to Sunday “because Jesus was resurrected on Sunday” or something like that.

But quite frankly, something about that just didn’t sit right with me. “Who gave the church/mortal man the right to change the Sabbath day from Saturday, the 7th day of the week to Sunday, the first day of the week?” I wondered. “Afterall, I never remember reading ANYTHING in the bible where Jesus said to change the sabbath day!”

Most recently in the last year or so, the total and COMPLETE answer been revealed to me:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

***Plus, many, many more “quotes” from the Catholic Church regarding the “Sabbath Change”……..

Translation? At the council of Nicea in AD 325 or so, The 7th Day Sabbath Day was CHANGED by Constantine and the Catholic Church (big surprise) from Saturday to Sun-Day (venerable worship of the Sun Day) and pretty much ALL Protestant churches later followed suit. And THIS is when “Christianity”, in and of itself, BECAME A LIE! Because NOT ONLY did the Catholic Church change the 7th day Sabbath but they PROFANED the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (outlined in Leviticus 23) by calling them “Jewish feasts” and “unnecessary” and thus, installing PAGAN HOLIDAYS into the church (such as Christmas, Easter, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween, etc.) which have NO SCRIPTURAL BASIS, WHATSOEVER! 

Furthermore, at the Council of Laodecia in AD 364 or 365 I believe, those who kept the true biblical 7th day Sabbath were punished and people of those times were even ENCOURAGED TO WORK on the 7th day Sabbath (something that the bible CLEARLY PROHIBITS on that day!) So now it should become CLEARLY apparent just HOW MUCH the “Catholic Church” HATES the bible, HATES Jesus Christ and everything he represents, HATES God the Heavenly Father and HATES his heavenly laws and decrees and 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord! 

And in their very own words, they think they are HIGHER THAN GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF! If that doesn’t send a cold chill down your spine, I don’t know what does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

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

So today, you got all these Christians who “bought the lies” of the Catholic and Protestant churches and are just going along, like sheep to the slaughter! And the sad part is, most of these folks have NO IDEA of the “hell” they’re headed for, after they die! They THINK they’re doing God service by worshiping on Sun-Day (venerable Pagan day of the Sun) rather than on the TRUE, biblical Sabbath (SATURDAY!) They THINK that Christmas and Easter are CHRISTIAN HOLIDAYS when they are actually PROFANE VERSIONS of the Lord’s TRUE FEASTS/HOLIDAYS (such as Passover and Chanukah). They THINK that the Lord NO LONGER REQUIRES us to celebrate the “Jewish feasts” when in all actually, they are not strictly “Jewish feasts” AT ALL, they are the feasts of the Lord meant to be observed by ALL his peoples, Jews and Gentiles ALIKE!

Also as well: the 7th Day Sabbath and OBSERVANCE of it is meant to be a “sign” of the covenant between the Lord and his people! Therefore, if people don’t adhere to HIS 7th Day Sabbath, which HE rested on and SANCTIFIED and SET APART AS HOLY, then they’re not truly a part of his “covenant”. And IF they continue to celebrate Christmas and Easter, KNOWING that they’re not true Christian holidays, then they will be eternally cut off from the Lord’s people someday (unless they REPENT and STOP celebrating them!)

That’s what Satan does. He PROFANES things that are SACRED to God/Jesus Christ! And then he tries to get AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to follow his “profane ways”…..

Lets just say that the Catholic Church is SATAN’S MASTERPIECE! THROUGH IT, he was able to not only DO AWAY WITH and PROFANE the 7th Day Sabbath, but he was able to GUT OUT the 2nd commandment “thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image……..thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them”, he was able to do away with the 4th commandment altogether (“remember the sabbath day to keep it holy”), he was able to get people to DO AWAY WITH the Lord’s holidays and install FALSE PAGAN HOLIDAYS into the church, he was able to get people to bow down to STATUES instead of to God Almighty/Jesus Christ himself, he was able to take just about EVERY biblical principle from the bible and PROFANE IT, somehow. 

But my question is THIS: HOW did the Catholic Church get away with it for SSSSOOOO LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGG and nobody’s seemed to notice? Why is there not MASS OUTRAGE over the LIES the Catholic Church has preached for HUNDREDS OF YEARS? Why are Protestants not UP IN ARMS about how their “churches” have ADOPTED the Catholic Church’s heresays? Why are modern-day Christians not reading the bible for THEMSELVES and/or confronting their pastors and/or fellow church members OF THE TRUTH?

One passage I find PARTICULARLY interesting (in light of the Catholic Church) is the following:

“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” – 2 Thessalonians 2:4

Okay, now compare that passage with the following quotes and tell me the resemblance isn’t STRIKING:

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

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

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

The point I want to try to make is THIS: The Catholic Church has turned “Christianity” into a LIE! Have you ever wondered why the bible proclaims the 7th day as the Sabbath but nearly ALL churches today proclaim the 1st Day of the week as the Sabbath? Or have you ever wondered why Jesus Christ was Jewish and celebrated (along with his disciples) all the Lord’s feasts, yet, most Christians of today have never even HEARD of these 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord outlined in Leviticus 23? Or have you ever wondered why Jesus Christ was Jewish, yet today’s “Christianity” has nothing “Jewish” ABOUT it?

I will admit that it took me a LONG time to finally see the light about the Catholic Church and all its false doctrines. My Catholic friend seemed so genuine in her faith, claiming that the Lord Jesus Christ led her there to the Catholic Church. But I submit to you today (as well as her, please forgive me if you’re reading this, I say this with love) that whatever “told” her to go the Catholic Church WASN’T Jesus Christ Almighty but SATAN himself! For Jesus Christ would never, EVER, EVER tell someone to step a single FOOT inside the Catholic Church (UNLESS he wanted to “educate them” about all the FALSE DOCTRINES that Catholics believe).

Perhaps it was a “test” by the Lord to see how much of the bible she REALLY knew or not. I myself had a similar “test”. The Lord Jesus Christ once sent me into an LDS Mormon church to “test” my knowledge of the bible against THEIR spiritual dogma. One by one, they get up at the podium and say “I know this church is true”. And after hearing that over and over and over again at the Mormon church, one almost starts to believe it. Thankfully, the Lord Jesus freed me OUT of that place before it was too late and I became another “Mormon robot”, as it were. If you look real closely in a Mormon’s eyes, you can “see” their programming. Plus I honestly saw a demon spirit project out of one of the “women teachers” there, once. It’s an experience I’ll never forget, one of the most freakiest things I’ve ever seen during a “church service”.

And though we are required to “fellowship”, I sometimes wonder if the whole modern-day concept of “church” is even biblical. Back during the times of Jesus, they had what’s called “small house churches” that met on days other than Shabbat/the Sabbath and ON the Sabbath, they went to the synagogues (as far as my understanding on that goes).

Usually, the bigger a “church” becomes, the more “corrupt” it gets. And the “smaller” a church is, the LESS corrupt it is (spiritually speaking). And while that’s not ALWAYS the case, it certainly seems to be in the majority of cases that I’ve noticed over the years.

Me? I don’t go to any “church” in my area. Today’s “churches” just don’t give a hoot about Jesus Christ or his true gospel. Show me just ONE Christian church in these parts that follows the bible, front to back, and I’d be happy to go to it every week. But alas, no such churches exist in my area. It’s either the PROFANE churches (who worship on the false Sun-Day sabbath and in the FALSE Pagan “holidays”), a local mosque, or an Orthodox Jewish congregation whose blood seems to BOIL at just the mere mention of the name of Jesus Christ Almighty! So that puts me in quite a pickle, as far as trying to attending a “church” goes. 

However, I do read and study the bible quite a bit. And trust me, I’ve learned more about God/Jesus Christ from my OWN personal home study than I EVER did inside a “Christian church service”. And trust me, there’s a REASONING for that. 

But please know this: VERY FEW people will get REDEEMED and allowed to go into the new heavenly city someday. And that is because they bought into the lie of the Catholic Church and beyond. Please, I beg of you: if you’re a Catholic and/or still go the Catholic Church, GET OUT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Your soul and your ETERNAL SALVATION depend on it! MARK MY WORDS!

 

“I’ve Become A Christian: Now What?” Part Two

I’ve noticed some modern-day persecution of Christians on Youtube, for example. Whenever a video receives almost nothing but “glowing messages” in the comments section, that usually means that there’s some minor error that’s wrong in the video that most people haven’t picked up on. However, when there’s nothing BUT truth in a video, oftentimes there will TONS of messages of hate and severe persecution underneath the video that can NOT be backed up by the bible. If the comments underneath a video can be backed up with the bible, then it’s likely to be humble correction on the part of the commenter.

However, if what a commenter says can NOT be backed up with the bible, that’s usually the mark of a true demonic attack on the video poster themselves. But persecution doesn’t just happen on Youtube. It happens in news articles, in public and even in the home or workplace as well. For example, I work in a place where, the most part, people don’t love God. Anyone that goes to church or believes in Jesus is seen as “uncool” and there’s ALOT of pressure for people to go out and drink, party, have casual sex relationships and smoke hash.

And if you DON’T do any of those things, the coworkers act nice to you in person and then talk about what a “spiritual hypocrite/religious bigot/goody-two-shoes” you are behind your back. And any attempts to tell them about Jesus (on your part) is somehow seen as “HATE”. Not to mention that upper management hints at you with this look of “better keep your religion out of it or you’ll likely lose your job, here!” In fact, our latest employee handbook says that no necklace jewelry is to be worn other than a medical one. So it would seem they don’t want people wearing cross necklaces for fear of offending all the atheists/etc. out there.

James 4:4 says: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God”. And I’m gonna be brutally honest with you, here. It is NOT easy to live a life set apart from the world. People will laugh at you, make fun of you, argue with you, make you feel guilty and like you’re some sort of “religious bigot”, exclude you from group outings, PRESSURE YOU TO BECOME MORE LIKE THEM — FULL OF DARKNESS — etc. all because you believe in Jesus Christ and following his commands in the bible.

People that are “friends” with the world are “worldly”, meaning they chase after ungodly pursuits such as lust, pride, greed, arrogance, envy, money/materialism, humanism, intellectualism without God, fame, etc. And in so doing, they become “enemies” of God, since God outlaws these practices and pursuits in the bible. However, those who pursue RIGHTEOUS pursuits such as chasity before/outside marriage, humbleness, giving to others less fortunate than them/putting other’s needs before their own, intellectualism WITH God, the disinterest in money/materialism, etc. are considered “friends” of God but “enemies” of the world and its “wordly pursuits”.

But one of the most IRONIC times that Satan uses to attack Christians is when they are at a HIGH point in their lives. Because lets face it, when everything’s going well in our lives, we tend to think our success is of our OWN accord, instead of on Jesus Christ’s accord. For example, maybe a missionary has successfully converted 70 people in one week in like, Guatemala or somewhere. And at the end of week, that Christian missionary starts to become full of themselves, saying to themselves from within: “wow, my missionary skills are TOTALLY AWESOME, I’m INDESTRUCTIBLE!”, totally forgetting the facts that it was the Lord who put him/her there in that country to begin with, the Lord who brought those spiritually hungry souls before him/her and the Lord himself who worked in the minds, hearts, bodies and spirits of those saved/converted people.

Or perhaps a Christian on WordPress or Youtube suddenly gains many subscribers and starts letting it go to their heads, instead of gracefully, fearfully and humbly thanking the Lord Jesus for opening up those peoples’ minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to his wonderful Eternal Truth (the truth of Salvation in him and him, ALONE!). When we have everything we need, we tend to forget God and his hand in things and that’s when Satan swoops in on us and thinks to himself “haha! NOW is my moment, during their most vulnerable time of weakness!” But when we DON”T have everything we need and are STRUGGLING, that’s when we REALLY start to get down on our knees to cry out to Jesus Christ, am I right?

Satan knows he doesn’t have a very good chance of trying to get us while we’re struggling (he KNOWS many of us will cry out to Jesus Christ in prayer during those times) but he knows just how truly VULNERABLE we are during times of “great accomplishment” in our lives. Hebrews 11:6 states: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. In other words, we must believe that Jesus Christ is who he says he is (the Son of God), and also that he rewards those who diligently seek him; not just halfway or partially seek him but DILIGENTLY seek him. Simply put, we must have FAITH.

Revelation 21:8 says : “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”. In other words, those who FEAR they’re not truly saved by Jesus Christ and those who do NOT believe that Jesus Christ is who he says he is or that he even exists, shall be eternally condemned in the lake of fire. And so once you become a fully-submerged baptized person in the name of Jesus Christ and become a bible-believing and bible-APPLYING Christian, you must CONTINUE being a bible-believing, bible-APPLYING Christian. You can’t just give up at the first sight of spiritual onslaught.

The degree to what Satan tempts you is ALSO a good sign of where you currently are, with the Lord. If Satan tries to tempt you ALOT, then you KNOW you’re in good with the Lord. But if he only tempts you from to time, then you need to re-examine your spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and find out if there’s something holding you back from a true spiritual relationship with him. Because lets face it, Satan doesn’t really have to tempt someone that much who’s already is or who’s become a “wayward Christian” of sorts. Think about it, folks!

I pray that all who read this will be saved in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and will stay saved for all eternity. Amen.

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church & The Vatican, Part 2

In my previous post on the matter, I listed 20 things that the Catholic Church believed/practiced that went AGAINST the bible. In this post, I’m going to further expand on some things and even add a few things the Catholic Church believes/practices that proves they are a church of Satan in disguise!

1. The Sale of Indulgences.

indulgences

In part 1, I mentioned there IS no such thing as “Purgatory”. You won’t find Purgatory ANYWHERE in the bible, whatsoever! During the years of the early 1540’s (give or take), there was something called the “Sale of Indulgences”. That more or less meant that if a person were willing to pay a big enough sum of money to the Catholic church, they could REMIT punishment of their sin(s) in “Purgatory”.

But according to the bible, there IS no “Purgatory” and a person can NOT “buy their way out of hell”. So sadly, instead of buying their way OUT of hell with their hard-earned and/or hard-saved money, Catholic lay-people around the time of the early 1540’s were instead buying their way INTO hell. Sadly, many Catholic people today (though they no longer participate in the sale of indulgences for the most part), STILL believe that they can pray dead people out of hell or have other people pray THEIR way out of hell. And we know from the bible that that’s simply not true for there is but one Earthly life on this Earth and one eternal judgement.

2. Relics.

It never ceases to amaze me just how many different “relics” the Catholic church has. They have the “relic” of this or the “relic” of that. But what most of people don’t realize is that all those “relics” are actually false IDOLS that are being WORSHIPED ***just like** the Golden Calf of Moses & Aaron’s time in history! But in fact, the Catholic Church carries around an “adorned skull” on a pillow (something that seems like an event at a Masonic lodge, somewhere). Does anyone else find this strange?

Skull worship in the catholic church relic MagdaleneRelics01relic77

3. Walls, Ceilings, Chandeliers made of nothing but real-life human bones. (Does anyone else see the total eeriness in all this?) Note: The Catholic Church claims it’s the bones of “previous popes” and “Catholics”. But during the time of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, many hundreds of Jews and “true Christians” (those who prayed to Jesus and Jesus Christ, ALONE) were murdered.

4. Veneration of the Dead. (similar to #3).

1846364138_b8843c5f2a_o-1 dead saints day home altar making one

5. The Catholic Church believes that Mary (mother of Jesus Christ) was “immaculately conceived”; in other words, they believe that Mary was born of a Virgin, just like Jesus. And we know from the bible that Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who’s EVER been conceived by a “virgin”. (This belief about “Mary” + “her parents” are nothing more than a complete mockery of the TRUE holy family comprised of Jesus, Mary & Joseph!)

AnnJoachimMary

6. Catholic doctrine says that the Holy Spirit is Mary’s spouse! (And we know from the bible that JOSEPH and Joseph ALONE was Mary’s spouse!)

_MaryHS mary, holy spirit, 2 mary, holy spiritholy, mary, spouse of

7. Child molestation oftentimes goes unreported. Instead, they seem to transfer “child molesting” priests from parish to parish.

This is just an example of one of MANY child molesting priests who were transferred from parish to parish.

8. The clerical dress of the Catholic church is Satanic, in and of itself. This is like something out of the movie “Eyes Wide Shut” and/or similar to the KKK! (Does anyone else find this strange?) 

catholic church dressed like witches, uh, yeahHELLISH GARB 5 hellish garb 4 HELLISH GARB LIKE KKK

9. The outside of the Vatican in Vatican city is shaped like a skull, plus there’s tons of Gargoyles (“sculptured witches/demons”) on Catholic churches everywhere. Anyways, these “sculpted witches/demons” seem to be visually “welcoming” demonic spirits INTO the church, for why would demonic sculptures “scare off” demons, as some claim? That’s honestly laughable at best! 

In my mind, they were put there as some sort of “show”. Demons are just like Satan, they want constant worship! People worshiping them in the name of so-called “saints” is not enough for them, no! They want even MORE worship…….in MORE sculpted form…….hence, “gargoyles”.

Many falsely claim they were there to “scare OFF” demons. Well, if that were the case, you know what would TRULY scare off demons? Jesus’s words and/or bible passages!!!!!! Why? Because those things have the bible’s TRUTH in them, whereas, gargoyles do NOT!!!!!! It’s almost like the demons themselves wanted something to try to scare people with, so people would actually fear/admire them and wouldn’t trust in the name of Jesus to cast them out or something!

10. There are Masonic symbols all throughout the Vatican, not to mention that they worship the Sun. (Note: It’s not halos you see surrounding the painted figures on the walls, they’re actually supposed to represent Suns). Please note that other world religions ALSO have theirgodsdepicted with this same general “halo” as the Catholic Church. Odd, isn’t it?

11. Not surprisingly, it is highly rumored that Satanic services/rituals go on, inside the Vatican. And some such “people” in the Catholic Church that have personal knowledge of this have now come forward, along with other true Christians out there who wish to shed the light on such matters.

The guy in the following video does a pretty good job of explaining my list of 11 in further detail.
