God Did Not Call The Church To Cowardice/Depraved Submission!!

Many Americans don’t know this but there USED to be a time here in The United States of America when prayer was not only ALLOWED in schools but when the bible (in and of itself) was the main curriculum in the schools/school system!

Religion in the schools Timeline:

1781  Congress approves the purchase of Bibles to be used in schools.

1783  First Noah Webster (Blue Book) Speller is published, with its opening sentence declaring: “No man may put off the law of God.”  This speller is widely used in American schools and is peppered throughout with Bible verses.  Later versions stated, “Noah Webster who taught millions to read but not one to sin.”

1796  In Washington’s Presidential farewell address to the nation he encourages America to learn Biblical teachings to sustain a moral and just country.

1802  Thomas Jefferson acting as President for Washington D.C. schools requires the Bible and the Watts Hymnal to be used in classrooms.

1808  Washington’s Farewell Address is published as a separate text book.  Washington’s Address is looked upon as one of the most important political documents in American history.  In the speech Washington emphases that for America to succeed it must have a moral society which can only come from roots in the Christian faith.  This text book is used until 1960’s.

1830  Dr. Benjamin Rush signer of the Declaration of Independence, letter is published in support of using the Bible as a school textbook.

1844  Girard proposes to teach morals without the Bible.  The Supreme Court rules that American schools are to teach Christianity using the Bible.  The case is argued and won by Daniel Webster. (Videl v. Girard)

1890  Supreme Court rules that America “is a religious people. . . . this is a Christian nation” as such it is fitting that its people would teach their children the Christian faith. (The Trinity Case)

1900  Virtually all school text books published to date have contained Biblical references or teachings.

1925  Tennessee governor signs law forbidding the teaching of evolution in public schools.  ACLU Lawyers take a school district to court in the famous Scopes Monkey Trial in an effort to have evolution taught in Tennessee Public Schools.

1925  Florida State legislators pass law requiring daily Bible reading in public schools.

1946  Dallas schools publish textbook titled “Bible Studies Course for New Testament.”  This book has many questions and answers about the life of Jesus Christ.

==============The Dividing Point When This Nation Turned Its Back on God===========

1948  Supreme Court rules that time set aside for prayer in public schools is unconstitutional. (McCollum v. Board of Education)

1962  Supreme Court rules that children may not recite a state written prayer in school (Engel v. Vitale).

1963  Supreme Court bans individual school prayer (Murry v. Curlett) and Bible reading in public schools (Abington Township School District v. Schempp).

1965  Supreme Court rules that a child may pray silently to himself if no one knows he is praying and his lips do not move.

1970  Governor Ronald Reagan signs “No-Fault” Divorce Bill

1973  Roe Vs. Wade LEGALIZES abortion

1980  U.S. schools report the lowest S.A.T. scores ever, after 18 straight years of decline following the 1962 ban on school prayer.

1980  Supreme Court rules that the Ten Commandments can not be posted in classrooms, “for a child might read them, reflect upon them and then obey them.”  (Stone vs. Graham) 

1985  Supreme Court strikes down Alabama law requiring schools to have a moment of silent meditation at the beginning of the day. 

1987  Supreme Court overturns a State Law requiring a balanced treatment of creation science and evolution. (Edwards vs. Aguillard) 

1992  Supreme Court rules Clergy may not offer prayer at graduation ceremonies.  (Lee vs. Weisman) 

2000  Supreme Court rules student initiated or student led prayer at football games is unconstitutional.  (Doe vs. Santa Fe Independent School District)

2004   Supreme Court upholds the words “One Nation Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.

2008   Christian run schools and most home schooling programs continue to produce students with higher academic test results then secular public schools.

2015 Supreme Court LEGALIZES gay marriage in all 50 U.S. States

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

So as you can see from the above Timeline, from 1948 & ONWARD, the Church just LET the dark side take over (more or less) and became SUBMISSIVE to the Federal Government and to the State! Why? Because the churches wanted Tax-Exempt Status, for one! Which I never understood, really. A pastor is just as much of an American citizen as a Christian lay person. So why should the Christian lay person have to pay taxes but the pastors of churches do NOT? There is grave injustice in that! Jesus Christ is UTTERLY ASHAMED of all the “Christian churches” today and that’s one of the reasons why!

And it’s a really, really sad day in America INDEED when the Supreme Court (which once upon a time actually UPHELD the laws of God) now does nothing but DEFIES the laws of God! OH HOW FAR THIS NATION HAS FALLEN! ;(

So tell me “churches”, was all that “tax-exempt status” WORTH IT, when you ended up having to COMPROMISE GOD’S WORD, in the end? Noah Webster said it best in the year 1783 when the opening sentence of his book stated, “No man may put off the law of God.”

Back in the year 1776, our nation here in America was off to a great start: It had Jesus Christ Almighty as its head & chief cornerstone. And look how wealthy & prosperous our nation had become, as a result! But just 62 years later, in the year 1838, Charles Darwin (who actually stole the “theory” from Alfred Wallace) proclaimed his theory of “Evolution” and that’s when all hell broke lose……that’s when the TRUE war on Christian religious liberty began in this country.

In fact, just a few years later, Girard, in 1844, proposed to teach morals WITHOUT the bible (as many people and “atheist leaders” try to do TODAY!) And that’s honestly laughable at best, since our moral laws are BASED on God’s laws. Remove all law based on God’s law and you’d HAVE no law (and consequently, NO morals!)

Therefore, I submit to you today that it’s IMPOSSIBLE to have morals without the bible since ALL morals/morality is BASED on the bible! And like I’ve said time & time again, if morality is “subjective”, who gets to decide what’s right and wrong? Just like who gets to decide what punishment (if any) should be enacted on a person who transgresses that “subjective morality” (or lack of it, should I say?) To say that one can have morals without God/the bible is REDUNDANT!

But yet, this is what I don’t get, have NEVER gotten and will NEVER get about the Lord’s people. Where were all the biblical/Jewish-roots Christians when “Emperor Constantine”, along with “Catholic bishops”, decided in 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea to make SUN-DAY (the FIRST day of the week) the “Sabbath Day”? Why were they not rising up in arms and revolting? Why were they not speaking out against the GRAVE INJUSTICE this had against the Lord’s people? Why did they just “sit there and take it”, collectively speaking?

And later on in history when Paganized/Roman Catholic holidays were INCORPORATED INTO “Christianity”, why were Jewish-roots Christians not also up in arms about THAT? And speaking out in MASS PROTEST?

And why did the Jewish-roots Christians just “sit and take it”, collectively speaking, when “Emperor Constantine” OUTLAWED the BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath and the Lord’s 7 Annual Holidays outlined in the bible that even Jesus Christ HIMSELF and his disciples celebrated in?

I suppose many of them grew tired and weary and were sick to death of having to fear for their LIVES all the time. So they just caved in…..and compromised in order to “keep the peace”, as it were [except for the very small few that SURVIVED the Inquisition & Catholic onslaught and still worship Jesus Christ in all his full glory & 7th day Sabbath/7th Annual Feasts, TODAY]. And lets face it, that’s REALLY no different than how “The Church” (as a whole) is, TODAY: It has COMPROMISED in order to “Keep The Peace!” But that brings to mind a certain bible passage to me:

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36

You can mentally put the word “Church” in place of man and “they” instead of he, and “their” instead of “his” and the meaning of the passage is STILL the same!

In other words, that passage is more or less asking individuals AND the church (as a whole) about what good does it do them to compromise to keep the peace, when it can cost them their own soul? A very good question, INDEED! For the Lord Jesus Christ did NOT call “the church” [which is, the BODY OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST] to be COWARDS or to “make nice” with sodomy/sin(s). The Lord Jesus Christ called “The Church” [that is, once again, the BODY OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST] to be wise as serpents, gentle as doves and BOLD AS LIONS when it comes to contending for the Faith!

However, the more and more “world-friendly” the “organized church” BECOMES, the more MORALLY DEPRAVED/SUBMISSIVE/**COMPROMISED** it IS!!!!!! And the more “COMPROMISED” it is, the more EVIL it BECOMES! Today’s “Christian Church” (as a whole) that tolerates abortion, divorce, adultery, materialism, sodomy/homosexuality, etc? It’s just a CULT OF CORRUPTION! And in stark contrast to Jesus angrily over-throwing the money-changers’ tables in the Jewish Temple, LOOK at how many “mega-churches” have gotten in trouble lately for “money-swindling schemes”! Are you REALLY that surprised, folks?

And not only that but where WAS “The Church” when the Supreme Court took prayer out of the schools? Legalized abortion? Legalized gay marriage in all 50 states? When Reagan signed “No-Fault Divorce” into law? When the LGBT Mafia and Planned Parenthood PARADED the K-12 schools with all their “propaganda”? Where WAS the church, THEN? Answer: It was SILENT! Which is WHY there’s so much evil and debauchery in the world today, and specifically here in America! OH HOW FAR & MIGHTY THE CHURCH HAS FALLEN! 😦

RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR4 RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR1

Many “Christians” stated they stopped going “to church” since there was TOO MUCH “HYPOCRISY”. But what it REALLY is, is THIS: The Modern-Day Christian Church is DEAD! It’s APOSTATE! It doesn’t contain the TRUE, everlasting, LIVING gospel of Jesus Christ! It DOES however, contain a FALSE CHRIST on a FALSE SABBATH with a FALSE GOSPEL with a FALSE CHURCH MODEL! And so to ME, it’s really NO WONDER that people are leaving “The Church” IN DROVES! They’re yearning for something MORE! Something more than what “commercialized Christianity” can give them!

And TODAY, I submit to you that you CAN have a personal, one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ Almighty! It’s called reading the King James Bible, front to back! And then, AS you read through it, slowly meditate on it and write down any Questions you might have. Pray to Jesus Christ about those questions. Bow down on your knees and pray and POUR YOUR HEART OUT TO HIM! He WILL listen to your prayers, MARK MY WORDS!

And then, as you read through your King James Bible and slowly meditate on what you read, the Lord Jesus Christ will REVEAL things to you……things in his written Word that you hadn’t seen before……..in other words, his written word will become all the more CLEAR to you and you will be spiritually enlightened and BROUGHT TO LIFE…..something that definitely would NOT happen in 98% of “churches”, today!

You will know from reading the King James Bible that you ARE a sinner and that the blood atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross is the ONLY way you can receive Salvation: By Grace Through Faith! And then and only then will the Lord Jesus open up your eyes, make you realize that YOU, along with every other human on this planet, is a sinner in NEED of Salvation! And then, as result, praying for forgiveness of your sins and REPENTING/STOPPING your sins should come very naturally!

And then IMMEDIATELY upon believing, become FULL-WATER IMMERSION baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (in a bathtub, shallow end of a swimming pool, etc.) All throughout the bible, people did NOT wait to become baptized. They requested to be baptized in the River Jordan by John the Baptist STRAIGHTAWAY UPON VERY FIRST BELIEVING IN JESUS CHRIST (THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE JEWISH MESSIAH!) Yet, he became Messiah TO THE WORLD…..not JUST the Jews!

And after and when you are baptized, you will feel OVERCOME with feelings of inner peace, joy, healing and ELATION! It’s the most HEAVENLY feeling I’ve ever felt in my ENTIRE LIFE! No moment in my life eclipses that moment when I became baptized! 😉

And then, right after you’re baptized, you’ll feel OVERWHELMED with the Holy Spirit and just want to start preaching Jesus Christ to EVERY person you come across! 😉 Kind’ve like when you’re in a relationship with your First Love and you can’t help but talk about that person to other people ALL THE TIME, just BEAMING with pride and joy? So it is with Jesus Christ after we very first become baptized!

But after awhile, just like with any Earthly or Romantic relationship, if we don’t put some EFFORT into the spiritual relationship we have with Jesus Christ, it begins to slowly die off over time, until it becomes practically non-existent:

“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent” – Revelation 2:4-5

And “The Church” (As A Whole), has left ITS “First Love” (collectively speaking), which is ALMIGHTY YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! Therefore, Jesus is giving us a DIRE WARNING up above in Revelation 2:4-5!

And in closing, I’d just like to say that “The Church” (TRULY/BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING) is NOT a “Building” but rather, A PEOPLE (in and of THEMSELVES), with Jesus Christ being the head/chief cornerstone!

Because remember that the TRUE “Church” of Jesus Christ is the BODY OF BELIEVERS THEMSELVES with Jesus Christ AS the chief cornerstone! It’s ONE gospel, ONE people, ONE unity! There ARE no “dissensions” or “denominations”! It follows the both the Old AND New Testaments! It celebrates the Lord’s 7TH-DAY BIBLICAL SABBATH & the Lord’s 7 Annual Holidays and DOES AWAY WITH ALL THINGS **PAGAN** (including Halloween, Christmas, Easter, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, etc.)….

It teaches that we’re ALL sinners in NEED of Salvation through Christ Jesus! It teaches REPENTANCE of sin! It teaches us to PRAISE ALMIGHTY YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST **CONTINUOUSLY** (through the good and the bad of our lives!) It teaches us to pray for forgiveness of sin! It teaches us to SPREAD THE GOSPEL ONTO OTHERS! And to love our neighbor as ourselves! Among many other things! In other words, it teaches a BIBLICAL/JEWISH Jesus, a BIBLICAL gospel, a BIBLICAL church model, and BIBLICAL holidays & commandments: the TRUE biblical gospel of Jesus Christ Almighty!

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY

Today’s “Modern-Day Family”: Satan’s Counterfeit

Nevermind the TV show by the same name, which glamorizes sodomy….http://abc.go.com/shows/modern-family/video/football-fumbles/VDKA0_08tfw8lk

The LGBT Movement has done nothing short but GALVANIZE the redefinition of “Marriage” and “Family”. And I personally have to wonder why. Afterall, why have to work SO hard to justify something that’s so-called “already normal”? Cause the fact is, homosexual lust/activity (aka SODOMY) is NOT normal and they KNOW it’s not normal in the eyes of God and man, so through books, movies, TV shows, and media propaganda, they think that “justifying sodomy” in the eyes of man will somehow DOWNGRADE it being an abomination in the eyes of God. But they are sadly mistaken.

God the Heavenly Father designed sex for marriage AND for marriage to be between a man and a woman, ONLY! Therefore, no amount of books, movies, TV shows, “Queen James Bibles” or media propaganda will change the fact that homosexual lifestyles are an abomination in the eyes of God. Just like NO amount of books like “God and the Gay Christian” by Matthew Vines is going to make God “change his mind on the matter”. What God says in the bible is an abomination is an abomination and there’s no changing it. And living a perpetually sinful lifestyle in SODOMY comes with ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES! I’m sorry but it’s true!

Many of them claim they were “born that way”. If that be true, where’s the “gay gene”, folks? Hint: it doesn’t exist. Never has, never will. Whenever scientists claim on a news headline they “finally found the gay gene”, the article ALWAYS states “this gene MAY cause this” or “that gene/combinations of genes MAY cause that”, it’s NEVER a definite. Why? Because there IS no definite, folks! People are simply CHOOSING to live this way and/or are socialized into this way from society/past trauma/a young age and/or their own general rebelliousness against God/the bible!

Some of them even CLAIM to be “Christian”. Well, I’m sorry but you can’t be “actively gay” AND “Christian”, you’re either one or the other! {Ofcourse, a person can be Christian but still struggle with same-sex attraction that they’re trying to get rid of, but that’s another post for a different time}.

The moral argument that an actively gay person can be a Christian would be no different than arguing an active “serial killer” could be “Christian”, too! And just like modern day sodomites, the serial killer could ALSO try to theoretically argue: “but I can’t help it, I WAS BORN THIS WAY!” [Most recent research on serial killers, like homosexuality, has pointed towards nurture — past childhood trauma –and NOT nature–genetics/biology]. Would THAT argument of “Christian serial killers” saying “BUT I CAN’T HELP IT, I WAS BORN THIS WAY!” stand in a “church congregation’s court of law”, sort’ve speak? OFCOURSE NOT! So why should a modern-day sodomite’s?

But the rate at WHICH the modern day church has accepted “gay marriage”, “gay families” and “gay clergy” really, truly ASTOUNDS ME! But then again, why should we biblical-roots Christians be surprised? The modern day Christian “church system” is Pagan/Satanic, in and of ITSELF, so it should REALLY come as no surprise that the modern day “churches” have now fully accepted homosexuality with open arms! Then again, the modern-day “church system” has really been a “church of Satan” all along, it’s just that many people didn’t even REALIZE it until now!

Honestly, there’s not that much difference between the ACTUAL Church of Satan and modern-day Christian churches (ESPECIALLY the Roman Catholic Church): for they BOTH worship Satan, quite honestly, just in different ways. The church of Satan is more open and public about it. The modern day Christian churches keep it more hidden……

They hide behind their FALSE Sun-day Sabbath, their UNBIBLICAL worship of idols (crosses, statues of Jesus and Mary), their FALSE/Pagan/Satanic “holidays” such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, their REJECTION of the Lord’s TRUE holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost), their REJECTION of the true BIBLICAL model of “communion” and their agenda of worship of SELF/good deeds, rather than of Jesus Christ Almighty! In other words, they’re like two sides of the same coin!

So……you might wonder…..what is with all this AGGRESSIVE DRIVE lately, here in the last few years, to try to shove gay marriage and the gay lifestyle down everyone’s throats? The answer is simple. They want the King James Bible and the TRADITIONAL FAMILY and TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE gutted, bit by bit and little by little…….

Gay marriage (like a “cancer”) is now EVERYWHERE in this country! Gay “parents” are adopting like crazy and there’s NO END IN SITE to all the people who now claim that two women and two men can be a “family”. And here, some former homosexuals speak out; children who were raised by gay parents speak out, former homosexuals themselves openly discuss the “gay agenda”, etc.:                        

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/lauretta-brown/adults-raised-gay-couples-speak-out-against-gay-marriage-federal-court

The “Queen James Bible” CELEBRATES the sin of homosexuality/sodomy and now biblical-Christian pastors, parents, and business owners alike are being called out for “homophobia” and “discrimination” by “not agreeing to the gay lifestyle and its adherents”.

Well, the definition of a “phobia” actually means FEAR. And biblical-Christians don’t FEAR active homosexuals, they just don’t agree with their sinful lifestyle. Therefore, the word should instead be changed to “homo-deterrent” or “sin-deterrent”.

But quite frankly, the bible itself isn’t the ONLY authority that disagrees with the concept of the “gay family” and/or “gay lifestyle”. Science ALSO disagrees (as the following studies indicate):

1. Researcher finds that children of gay parents ARE 3 times more likely to be gay themselves http://www.frc.org/issuebrief/new-study-on-homosexual-parents-tops-all-previous-research [without PROPER social development, a proper gender role identity can’t be fully developed…….research PROVES this!]

2. LGBT kids are FOUR times more likely to attempt suicide than their straight counterparts http://www.thetrevorproject.org/pages/facts-about-suicide [that’s because they’re under SEVERE DEMONIC OPPRESSION……..first, the demons want them having “gay feelings”, or being severely bullied for having “gay parents” and THEN they want them feeling “suicidal”].

3. Children growing up with gay parents do worse in school (on average) than students who have straight/married parents http://www.frc.org/issuebrief/new-study-on-homosexual-parents-tops-all-previous-research

4. Children with gay parents are 2-3 times more likely to drink or partake of illicit drugs than those raised by traditional parents http://www.drugfree.org/join-together/gay-lesbian-and-bisexual-teens-more-likely-to-smoke-drink-and-use-drugs/

These statistics are mind-numbing. I’ve known for years and years and years that children being raised in a gay household was NOT good for their physical, social, psychological, spiritual and emotional development. Because lets face it, without the proper social development of having TWO parents (one biologically-born man and one biologically-born woman, preferably married), how will they ever learn PROPER gender roles in today’s society? People tend to emulate what they grew up with……..if a young girl had an abusive dad that slapped her mom around, she herself will usually seek out an abusive guy cause that’s what she used to. Or if a boy has a mother that drinks, he will oftentimes turn into an alcoholic himself when he gets older……..so it goes with children growing up with gay parents.

Research has shown that children growing up with two “fathers” or two “mothers” secretly YEARN for an opposite-sex parent in their lives! And their mental psyche suffers when they don’t have that! Girls who grow up with two women oftentimes turn into lesbians themselves because nothing else feels “normal” to them. And boys who grow up with lesbian or homosexual parents are ALSO more likely to turn out to be gay because they were “imprinted on” from a very young age that “being gay is OK”. And in SOME extreme cases, children of such “gay unions” may even feel PRESSURED to be gay themselves, just like their gay parents, like in THIS type of situation, for example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrOdbg2hSWQ

But basically, homosexuality, at its very CORE, all comes down to a thing of LUST! Those that aren’t truly Christian, those that adhere to religions other than Christianity and those that suffer sexual trauma or broken homes at a young age are a MINEFIELD for dark, demonic spirits to infiltrate! Why? Because the young child is already “broken”, to begin with. So the demon spirits have no problems falsely convincing the child that they are “gay”. Another thing that happens is the pro-homosexual education in the schools. It encourages children to “experiment” with one another and when they do and find it “feels good”, they automatically assume “wow, I’m gay!”, when that personally couldn’t be further from the truth, it’s just that the “Gay propaganda” AND demonic spirits falsely made them believe they were!

I’ve watched more than one “testimony” of “gay people” *coming out*. And nearly ALL of them seem “confused”. For example: a guy said in 8th grade he was looking at guys in hunter magazines or something like that. And the guy said he was confused as in, “am I attracted to these guys or do I want to BE these guys?” And then, he says, when he got to college, the LGBT people were “so welcoming” that he was FINALLY able to identify himself as “gay”. Well, that statement really got to me. Because it doesn’t AT ALL seem like it was a clear cut “I’m gay and I’ve been gay since the 8th grade” type thing.

It’s more like the demon spirits were HARD AT WORK in him, ever since he was in 8th grade, trying ever so hard to convince him that he was “gay”. And then, when he got to college (the most LIBERAL of all places, education wise), he found the “gay community” *welcoming*! Well, ofcourse he found the gay community *welcoming*. Satan’s agents (both demonic and human) can take what’s wrong, make it seem right, and then put a warm “smile” on their face while doing so! They were warm and welcoming and happy towards this guy because the demons thought “Yes! We got him! FINALLY!”

And does it REALLY come as any surprise that Lucien Greaves of the Church of Satan considers gay marriage “a sacrament?” http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/satanic-temple-gay-marriage-sacrament

Demon spirits get people to think and do all sorts of weird things! We read articles in the news today where people that go out and kill other people claim they “heard voices” or that “Satan told me to do it”, etc. We also see things like people eating/consuming human flesh (cannibalism) or COVERING their bodies in piercings and/or tattoos. Clearly, demon spirits are alive and well in today’s world!

Then again, one need look no further than some of the images from the “Gay Pride Parades” to know just HOW sinful and DEPRAVED homosexuality is! Hint: Demons like hiding behind things such as “masks”, costumes and make-up! And again: homosexuality is NOT about love, it’s about LUST! Examine for yourselves! These images are PROOF of that!

DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE3 GAY PRIDE11 GAY PRIDE5 GAY PRIDE4 GAY PRIDE8 GAY PRIDE, MORE LIKE GAY LUST GAY PRIDE GAY PRIDE2 GAY PRIDE23 GAY PRIDE7 SEX AD3 GAY PRIDE19 GAY PRIDE18 GAY PRIDE16 GAY PRIDE15

Sadly, this is what our society and our world has become today. Can you imagine? People that weren’t even openly homosexual to begin with BECOMING homosexual at the hadst of demons (as was the case with a happily married man who seemed to magically become a “feminine homosexual” overnight AFTER going to the Burning Man festival in Nevada). His quote on it is particularly striking: “what if you discovered that the way you’ve been doing things is wrong?” In other words, someone seemed to “re-program him” mentally and put a homosexual “curse” on this man, I guarantee it!

There was absolutely NO talk of “oh, I’ve been attracted to the same sex from a young age and now I’ve just come to terms with it”. No, it was full out, “what if you discovered the way you’ve been doing things (as in, having STRAIGHT sex in a STRAIGHT marriage) was wrong?” Wow. We should all pray for this man to be DE-PROGRAMMED from the Burning Man Festival and brought back to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before it’s too late! Because my heart was actually SAD when I read that.

And here, we see “gay” people later getting married to the opposite sex and being COMPLETELY happy that way!

Back in the 70s, homosexuality was considered a “mental illness” (quite seriously) and all the homosexuals wanted people to know that it was a “choice”. Now, they’ve changed their tune and want people to think they were “born that way”. (While science has YET to catch up to that “radical” concept). But in so doing, they can now try to claim “unalienable rights” that are afforded to race, gender, etc. But when you peel back all the layers, what they really want is a right to SIN……..to sin in peace and to NOT have to hear the bible’s opposition to such “practices”. But the LGBT Movement doesn’t just want to stop there…….it wants to ERADICATE the bible and its “moral code”, altogether. 

But in fact, as I’ve stated in previous posts, there IS no “gay gene”, folks! They will never, ever, ever, EVER find one. And if they do, I guarantee ya that they’ll have to FABRICATE IT! Even many some gay activists THEMSELVES admit “there IS no gay gene”: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene while a prominent lesbian activist admits that the gay agenda’s goal is to DESTROY MARRIAGE (as an institution, in and of itself): 

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

But see? That’s the good news, folks! There IS no “gay gene”, therefore, it is PERFECTLY possible for Jesus Christ to SET ONE FREE FROM HOMOSEXUALITY/HOMOSEXUAL LUSTS and from the GAY LIFESTYLE! All one has to do is ask! And believe! And Jesus Christ WILL change you! MARK MY WORDS!

Jesus Christ cured people from all sorts of “demons” in the bible! Even Mary Magdalene was cured of SEVEN DEMONS! SEVEN! (And given her occupation as a prostitute — BEFORE she met Jesus, ofcourse —  the demons were no doubt centered around the sin of SODOMY/LUST!) And so believe me, if Jesus Christ can cure Mary Magdalene of SEVEN demons, who’s to say that Jesus Christ can’t cure you of YOURS?

“But I was born this way! I can never change!” LIES! Lies from the Devil! Lies from Satan and his demons! DON’T BELIEVE THEM! Jesus Christ CAN and WILL change you and help you OVERCOME the sin of sodomy/lust if you just let him!

Cry out to Jesus Christ in prayer, today! He CAN and he WILL save you from sodomy/lust/human depravity!

As for those “gay married people” or “gay parents” out there that desire to live God’s way, get divorced. Then turn back to the King James Bible and Jesus Christ Almighty and start reading it and applying it to one’s life! Don’t just “go to church every week” and expect to be saved. For quite frankly, the modern day Christian “church system” is a LIE! (Read the 2008 updated & revised “Pagan Christianity” by Frank Viola & George Barna for more info.)

Read and follow the ENTIRE bible, front to back. Partake of the 7TH DAY SABBATH (which the bible says God consecrated and set aside, to make holy) — which is Friday sundown to Saturday sundown (remember that a Jewish-Hebrew day begins at sunset the night before). FORSAKE the Satanic/Pagan holidays of Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, etc. Instead, read and learn about the LORD’S BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Feasts of Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, Trumpets, etc.).

Please realize that Jesus Christ himself is REVEALED in all the Lord’s feasts and consequently, is NOT revealed in any of today’s modern-day “Pagan feasts/holidays”. Also please realize that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts are required of ALL the Lord’s people and not just SOME of the Lord’s people (i.e. the Jewish people). 

See, Satan and his demons have been lying for mankind for CENTURIES! “Sun-day is the new Sabbath”, “It’s OK to take Pagan holidays and put a “Christian stamp” on them”, “it’s OK to be gay/live the gay lifestyle”, etc.

And trust me, there’s a total PEACE and JOY that’ll come over your soul when you realize what the Lord’s gospel TRULY is and what it isn’t. And remember: ONLY Jesus Christ can set you free from your sins (even the sin of lust/sodomy). Anyone that tells you otherwise is lying or just trying to sell you something.

Constantine: Satan’s Homeboy [CHURCH BUILDINGS ARE UNBIBLICAL!!!!!!]

Many well-meaning “Christians” today dress up in their Sunday-best, file into church every Sunday morning, sit down at the pews trying ever-so-hard to look dignified, and then stare straight ahead to “listen to” the choir and/or the priest/pastor.  And every so often in church, they take part of the “communion table”, answer an “altar call”, “put money into the offering plate”, etc.

And they feel perfectly comfortable while doing so, because hey, it’s “tradition”, right?

Now think about that word for awhile: tradition. Let it sink in. Meditate on it for awhile. The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines “tradition” as: “a way of thinking, behaving, or doing something that has been used by the people in a particular group, family, society, etc., for a long time; Cultural continuity in social attitudes, customs, and institutions, etc.”

Okay, now lets turn to the bible to see what Jesus Christ Almighty had to say about the word tradition:

And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition – Mark 7:9

But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?“- Mark 15:3

Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mark 15:6b-9

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” – Luke 6:46

So in other words, ALL modern-day church buildings (ALL OF THEM, NO EXCEPTIONS) have “transgressed the law of God” to follow man’s OWN TRADITION!!! Because the bible actually CONDEMNS “church buildings”.

Please remember that in Matthew 27:51 “And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent”. Translation? THE TEMPLE WAS NO LONGER NEEDED AS JESUS CHRIST *HIMSELF* BECAME THE TEMPLE, ALONG WITH THE *BODY OF BELIEVERS*!

So BECAUSE of this, 1st century Christians were smart and HAD no “buildings” to meet in but rather, met in private homes of about the small size of 5-35 people or so. And several “house gatherings” were had throughout the city of Jerusalem. But they did NOT consider themselves “separate groups/denominations” like you see today. Rather, they were ONE group, ONE believing body. EVERY single person was treated equally and given the “ability” to “minister” onto all the others. That way, they each brought their OWN insights from the Lord TO the meeting and EVERYONE maintained eye contact with one another and benefited. They were all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ Almighty and Jesus Christ Almighty HIMSELF was the “head of the church, the *chief cornerstone* and the head of the *gathering*!

{And please note: Many people think that Constantine made it so that “Christians” weren’t persecuted anymore, PERIOD. But that’s just simple not true, folks! What Constantine did — along with the help of “Catholic bishops” — is PERSECUTE the *TRUE CHRISTIANS* (those who held to the BIBLICAL “Jewish precepts” of their religion! So YES……..TRUE/BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS were STILL persecuted under the “rule” of Constantine, unfortunately……}

However, the start of the “church building” (where the “priest/pastor” was considered ABOVE the “laity” and where the “laity” were SILENCED and NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK, etc.) began with Constantine. Sadly, many Christians and historians today tout Constantine as the “great hero” and “spreader of Christianity all throughout the Roman Empire” but what they DON’T realize is THIS: the TYPE of “Christianity” that Constantine “spread all throughout the Roman Empire” was a FALSE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM based on PAGAN PRECEPTS!

The truth is, Constantine no doubt “admired” many of the “Pagan temples” he saw around the Roman Empire and came up with the MORTAL IDEA that “hey, Christians should have THEIR own building to worship in, as well”, even going so far as to MODEL these “basilicas” AFTER the “Pagan temples” of his day. He also saw Jesus AS the Sun god, Helios, and inserted sun god symbols all throughout the basilicas and even went so far (during the 325AD or so Council of Nicea) to CHANGE GOD’S HOLY, SANCTIFIED 7TH DAY SABBATH to SUN-DAY (venerable worship day of the SUN), so he could CONTINUE to worship the “sun god, Helios” in the IMAGE of Jesus Christ! (BLASHPHEMY!!!!)

And not only THAT, but it gets much worse, historical wise. At the 365AD Council of Laodicea, it even BECAME A CRIME to worship on the Lord’s TRUE *biblically-mandated* 7th-Day Sabbath and ALSO to celebrate in the Lord’s (once again) *biblically-mandated* 7 Annual Feasts (such as Passover, Pentecost, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) In addition to fasting, praying or eating of “unleavened bread”. On the other hand, “Christians/Jews” of that that time were COMMANDED by Constantine/Catholic bishop/other Roman imperial leaders to eat UNCLEAN FOODS (such as pork), to worship on PAGAN holidays (such as Christmas, Easter, etc.) and to WORK on the 7th Day Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, which was all CLEARLY CONDEMNED IN THE BIBLE!

And IF a Christian/Jewish person refused to comply with Constantine’s demands, they were PUNISHED (most times, imprisoned/executed). So tell me. Is Constantine “such a great hero” in your mind, NOW? HE, along with the Catholic Church, PERSECUTED THE LORD’S TRUE PEOPLE!

And one of the REASONS Constantine was so successful to get people AWAY from true biblical, Jewish-roots Christianity is because Anti-Jewish sentiment was HIGH at that time. Why? Because the “Christians” blamed the JEWS for the execution of Jesus Christ! So they saw all Jews as “evil” and wanted to have nothing to do with “all things Jewish”. Constantine, in retrospect, took high advantage of this and decided that the Lord’s commands in the bible were “Jewish only” and NO LONGER APPLIED TO THE LORD’S PEOPLE (that is, to say, “Christians”).

However, a few “Christians” out there were wise enough to defy the attack on the Lord’s people and the Lord’s commandments and REFUSED to obey Constantine and/or the Roman Catholic Church (and many payed with their very own LIVES for it!) Today, those people are known as Jewish-roots Christians, Messianic Christians, Jewish Christians, Christian Jews, or Judeo-Christians, respectively.

Truth be told, Constantine, like the Roman Catholic Church, HATED the real, true, biblical Jesus Christ, and the Lord’s law and the Lord’s people. Almost as much as Hitler did, if not more so!

Basically, the made the “Christianity” of today nothing more than BABYLONIAN/PAGAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED.

So people: I beg of you! GET OUT OF THE CHURCHES AND THE “CHURCH SYSTEM” WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Your eternal salvation depends on it, MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

And remember that, during the time of the White Throne Judgement, Jesus Christ is going to say to/about MANY, MANY, MANY people in Matthew 7:21-13:

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 heavenMany 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”

Plus remember that Matthew 7:21 is a FOLLOW-UP to Luke 6:46 which states: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

[Now, is that to say that a true body of believers/assembly in Christ CAN’T meet in a church building every week? No. Not necessarily…….It just means that they can’t CALL the “church building” the “house of God”, and they also can’t SAY they are “going TO church” (if they want to be TRULY biblically accurate) for each believer in Christ IS “the church”.

Also as well: if EACH person gets to say their own individual input into what the Lord has taught them that week, that’s considered a biblical model of worship. Some might say that sermons are okay because “each person” gets to speak individually during bible study.

But “sermons” (as a whole) are still biblically inaccurate since a) it sets the “laity” above the churchgoers, and the bible says ALL believers are considered “equal”, in importance and are called “ministers unto God/Jesus Christ” and b) the institutionalized church service is a solemn assembly when the bible says “church gatherings” are supposed to be a JOYOUS assembly, REJOICING in Jesus Christ’s resurrection & ascension, while ALSO talking about the important of repentance of sins! and c) “the church”, that is, the body of believers in Christ — as a whole — are supposed to go out INTO the world to preach the gospel and not “hide” behind 4 walls every week!]

If you’ve EVER sat through a church service and wondered why it is you don’t seem to be growing at all in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ or why you feel like you’re just going through the motions, etc., then the following book is for YOU!

As Christians, we can either CONTINUE with “tradition” as is and be led on the path to eternal darkness, keep going to church every SUN-DAY and following “Pagan traditions of men”, thus taking the “blue pill”.

OR……..we (as Christians) can choose to be enlightened, shown what the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ is, have a TRUE life-changing spiritual relationship with him, and DEFY all things Pagan, and read (and APPLY) the following 2 books……..thus taking the “red pill” [realizing the “reality” of modern-day church traditions].

[Note: The “blue pill” and “red pill” are a reference to the movie called “The Matrix”. In the movie, the character Neo is more or less told: “take the blue pill and you can go back to your life, believing whatever you want to believe, and follow in your own tradition – but take the red pill, and you will see just how far down the rabbit hole [of reality] goes”].

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY and it’s SEQUEL…. PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2

From Christian to Messianic/Jewish roots Christian

What very first began the journey for me was the day I was sitting on the living room couch in the apartment, re-reading a children’s illustrated bible that a relative had gotten for me when I was little. [And this particular bible has *specific* sentimental value to me since it is THE bible that was given to me not long after I had a near-death experience where I met Yeshua/Jesus Christ for the very first time in my life, with no previous knowledge of him]. 

Anyways, as I was sitting there joyfully re-reading my favorite parts out of that particular children’s illustrated bible, a peaceful breeze blew through the apartment and a soft, still voice said/whispered to me”Yeshua”.

I said “what?” It said/whispered to me once more “Yeshua”. And then a sudden understanding dawned upon me. This was the HEBREW/ARAMAIC name for Jesus! I was excited! I was happy! I had just had an encounter with the Holy Spirit of God and I felt truly blessed! 😉

So I was one step closer to the truth at that time. I knew Jesus’s Hebrew/Aramaic name was Yeshua but at point in time, that was about ALL I knew, around the year 2001-2007 or so? My mom was raised Lutheran and my dad was raised Methodist but they had both pretty much abandoned the Christian faith in their adult years, so I had no real spiritual grounding, while growing up. And though I had read the “official” bible (the Holy Bible that’s in churches), IN ADDITION to the bible given to me as a child, there were still alot of things about Jesus Christ/Yeshua that I didn’t quite understand.

And though I wanted and longed to go to a Christian church, I didn’t feel spiritually grounded or knowledgeable enough to be around other Christians “that have been going to church their whole lives”. I went to Lutheran services a time or two but felt out of place, like I didn’t belong there, like something was missing. And the only other place I had to turn to for spiritual advice was my bestfriend, who was Catholic and I knew there was something “odd” about the Catholic faith back then but I didn’t know exactly what, at the time. So I gave up going to church altogether and several years went by, with me sporadically reading/studying my King James Version bible at home.

And then, in the last four years or so, I had, for some reason, become PARTICULARLY interested in researching WHAT it was about the Catholic Church that was wrong, since it was nagging and eating away at me, on the inside. And after doing lots of research, I finally found out what it was about the Catholic Church that was WRONG/FALSE! And it set my soul at ease, just being able to know the truth about it. But I still had many unanswered questions about Jesus’s true role with the Old Testament, since I knew that Jesus was a Jew.

And it was only within the last year or so that I had become HIGHLY INTERESTED in learning about the JEWISH ROOTS OF CHRISTIANITY and it was there, during that time, that the Lord Jesus/Yeshua finally revealed his truth to me. The truth about the TRUE SABBATH (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: 3 stars visible in the sky) and about HOW and WHY the Old Testament (Torah) still applies! And about WHY I (as well as all other Christians) must STILL participate in the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) And about WHY Christians should NOT celebrate the Pagan holidays of Christmas, Easter, New Years, St. Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Birthdays!

But I WILL say this! After I had changed my “point of availability” at my work so I wouldn’t have to work on Shabbat/The Sabbath, (which remember, begins Friday evening at sundown), I’ve have COUNTLESS ATTEMPTS by people trying to get me to work on the Sabbath (Friday evenings & sometimes asking me to work on Saturday) giving me any NUMBER of excuses as to why they wanted me to work on the Sabbath and it used to happen at my work practically EVERY SINGLE WEEK! It was MADDENING! The Devil and his demonic representatives were TRULY trying to keep me from worshiping on the Lord’s TRUE Sabbath (Friday SUNDOWN to Saturday sundown!) Which only serves as FURTHER EVIDENCE to me that YES! Friday sundown to Saturday sundown IS the Lord’s true Sabbath!

A couple of my Christian friends think that I’m “superstitious”  or “in the wrong” for wanting to follow the ORIGINAL Jewish roots of Christianity but I know in my heart and soul that the Old Testament (Torah) applies just as much TODAY as it did yesterday in the days of Old. But today’s Christians (in general) have SO many arguments about why they “think” the Old Testament no longer applies. But in Matthew 5:17-18, Yeshua/Jesus Christ has THIS to say: 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”. [Everything won’t be fulfilled until the very END of the Book of Revelation — which is chapter 22!]

I will admit I’m STILL in the process of learning more about specific practices that must take place on the Sabbath/Shabbat and the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord. Like, for a Passover meal, for example, there’s things called a Seder Meal/Plate, Kiddish Cup, etc. And since I wasn’t born and raised in the Jewish faith, or any faith in particular, it’s hard for me to find good resources out there that tell me how to celebrate such holidays. The website http://www.hebrew4christians.com provides some pretty good information on the history of the Jewish holidays and learning Hebrew language, etc.

There’s also a couple of good books that I’m reading right now that shed some light on the subject. But they still don’t give specifics (as far as I know) about WHAT type of modern-day material can be used to construct the dwelling for Feast of Tabernacles (if any). Then again, I’m still only in the very beginning chapters, as of right now. But so far, they are both some VERY good reads! [P.S.: If there’s any other fellow Messianic Jews out there who can give me more information about the challah, kiddish cup, seder meal, etc, please let me know – Thanks!]

BIBLICAL FEASTS FEASTS OF THE LORD

The Power Of Starting Over On A Fresh, Clean Slate….

We’ve all said and done things in our lives that we regret and that we possibly hate ourselves for, looking back…..things in our lives that we wish we NEVER would’ve said or done or that we should’ve done DIFFERENTLY.

Well, with Jesus Christ, we CAN start all over and we CAN have our slate wiped clean and start a new life.

But first, we must have an INTERNAL change within our mind, heart, body and spirit. We have to regret all our misdeeds/”sins” in our life SO MUCH that we’re willing to do almost anything to change them.

What’s sin? Sin is transgression of the law (of God). Ever stolen anything? Ever lusted after a woman (men) or a man (ladies) that you weren’t married to? Ever told a lie? Said the Lord’s name in vain? That makes you a thief, an adulterer, a liar and a blasphemer and that’s just FOUR of the 10 commandments!

But that is where Jesus Christ comes in. The prophesied Jewish Messiah talked about in the Old Testament and the only true begotten Son of God, HE gave his very own LIFE during the crucifixion & shed his very own holy blood, just SO mankind could be FORGIVEN for their sins AND assured a spot in Eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday! And there is NO greater love than that, people!

Jesus Christ loves us all SO MUCH, that he was more than willing to DIE for us on the cross, just so WE could be forgiven of our sins and just so WE could have a way to spend ETERNITY WITH GOD IN NEW JERUSALEM someday. And so again, there is NO greater love than that!

3 days later after Jesus Christ was crucified, he rose from the dead (just like he told his disciples he would). [Google the “Shroud of Turin”] And 40 days after that, Jesus Christ (in front of the apostles and others) ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God, the heavenly Father. But don’t just take MY word for it. See for yourselves!

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

Jesus Christ was God in the flesh and he proved it…..not only in the bible and to his disciples and various non-Christian crowds after he rose from the dead just 3 days later after he died on the cross, but to myself as well (during a near-death experience).

The thing about Jesus Christ is that he doesn’t care WHO you are or WHAT you’ve done so far in your life. You CAN be forgiven for all your sins, just like you CAN start over a brand new life in him!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper, bank robber, homeless, a drug addicted person, a practicing homosexual. No sin is too bad to be forgiven of, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit: (many bible scholars believe that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is to claim that Jesus Christ got his power from Satan but it can also likely mean several other things, too, such as not believing that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and DYING in that sin of unbelief, etc.)

Jesus Christ can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and turn it around and make that person CLEAN by teaching that person how to OVERCOME their unrighteousness and become a righteous person in his heavenly site! Jesus Christ can set a person FREE from their sins and their failures and their addictions.

Whatever you’re going through in life, Jesus Christ has a solution and an answer. But you got to TRUST JESUS CHRIST to change your life. But you must TRUST HIM. Meaning that you must first of all BELIEVE that Jesus Christ IS the only begotten Son of God AND that he died for your sins AND that he has the power to change you from within. And once you believe in the power of the Lord and pray for the Lord Jesus Christ to change you, he will change you. He will also give you the gift of the Holy Spirit (the spirit of truth/spirit of spiritual discernment that will let you know what things are truly of God and what things are NOT of God).

And as soon as you fully believe in the Lord Jesus Christ beyond ALL reasonable doubt, you must get immediately baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the ceremonial “washing away of sins”. You don’t have to do it publicly or by a priest. You can do it in a swimming pool, river, lake or your very own bathtub filled with water (because remember that it must be a FULL IMMERSION baptism, according to the bible and NOT a “sprinkling”).

You must then also (to the very best of your ability) obey all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible (including the 10 commandments, the 7th-Day biblical Sabbath (because remember that the “Sunday Sabbath” seen today is NOT biblical at all), the 7 holy feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.), Sermon on the Mount, etc.) and preach the gospel to others to everyone/anyone who’ll listen.

Many Christians today think that the 7th-Day Sabbath was done away with and also that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts were done away with the New Testament as well. But did you know that Jesus Christ and his disciples NOT ONLY participated in the 7th-Day Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) but also in the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) as well? [Some bible scholars even suggest he ALSO participated in the 2 “Minor” Jewish Feasts (Purim & Festival of Lights/Hanukah).

Yeshua/Jesus Christ Himself even said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law & the prophets. For 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”. And we know this won’t happen (the first heaven and Earth passing away, that is) until Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! 

But upon believing in and getting baptized in the name of Yeshua/Jesus Christ, you will become a new creature in the Lord and start a NEW LIFE in him! Everything you’ve done in your life so far will not matter, anymore. The only thing that’ll matter from the MOMENT you become saved in Yeshua/Jesus Christ to the moment you die in this life is where you stand with Yeshua/Jesus Christ. And where you stand with Jesus Christ is determined by how you LIVE for Jesus Christ….

For example, do you believe in Jesus Christ? Have you accepted him as Lord & Savior? Have you prayed for forgiveness of your sins? Have you given up your sins and stopped doing them? Have you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ? Do you witness about Jesus Christ and Salvation to others? Do you do all the things that the Lord Jesus Christ tells you to do (such as obey the 10 commandments and Sermon on the Mount teachings in Matthew5-7 as well as several OTHER New Testament commands? Some possible examples (depending on what the Lord needs from you at the time) might be things like “write a letter of apology to this person, go witness to that person, give the coat off your back to that homeless person over there, donate your leftover food to the food bin”, etc.

Are you in that place in your life where, if you were to die today or tonight, you’d know for 100% sure beyond all reasonable doubt that you’d go to eternal NEW JERUSALEM someday and not the fires of hell? If you are NOT 100% sure, then it’s time for you to examine yourself and your life and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal to you about anything that’s holding you back from him. Cause lets face it…..5 minutes of sin is not worth eternal condemnation in the fire (“flames of torment”).

One of these days, the Earth and everything in it is gonna pass away someday (including all the material things and wealth). The Lord said in Isaiah 65:17 “Behold, I create a new heavens and a new Earth”.

And all of mankind will be judged for their actions (rather good or bad) by Jesus Christ. Will YOU stand before the Lord Jesus Christ someday on the Day of Judgment upon the Earth and say to him “I’m sorry Lord…during my Earthly life,  my sin was MUCH more important to me than YOU, I don’t want to go to eternal punishment in the “fire that never quenches” now, please forgive me?”

That won’t fly with the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances throughout their lifetimes to change their lives around and to hear the message of the gospel/be saved from their sins! And so IF by the end of a person’s life, a person hasn’t accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior/asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins with a “righteous repentance” in their mind, heart, body and spirit, that is NOT God’s fault!

Now that begs of question. If people know AHEAD OF TIME that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to New Jerusalem, the ONLY one true God, and the ONLY way to have forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to be spared from God’s eternal wrath in the fire, why do they still choose to reject him? Why do they STILL choose to go to “eternal condemnation” even when they know that the place of eternal condemnation is going to be an awful, torturous, gruesome place FOR ETERNITY? Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ will spare THEM just because they donated to charity, or never killed anyone and that sort’ve thing?

Do they REALLY think that Jesus Christ is a “unrepentant-sin-accepting” type of God? And/or that he’s the type of God to be “sweet-talked” to or to let sin go UNPUNISHED? THINK AGAIN, PEOPLE! Jesus Christ is a righteous, holy, and PURE God! And he lets NO sin into NEW JERUSALEM/the eternal kingdom. None. A person’s “good deeds” or money or good looks will NOT save them from the holy, divine wrath of God!

Yet, many people out there think: “well, Jesus Christ is such a holy, righteous God, there’s NO WAY he’d accept me!” Again, wrong….Jesus Christ will save and accept ANYONE who truly calls upon his name, prays for forgiveness of their sins, repents of their sins, gets baptized in his heavenly name, preaches the gospel to others, obey his commandments in the bible, trusts him & truly abides in him by the way they LIVE for him.

I got a short parable for you. Luke 18:9-14: And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted”. 

The tax collector was justified before God/Jesus and NOT the Pharisee. Why? Because not only did the tax collector have the faith and desire for Jesus in his life, but he TRUSTED Jesus Christ to change him from within and cleanse his spirit and his ways. The Pharisee just basically bragged about how “holy” he was and lacked a true spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. The Pharisee became one of those in the group of people which Jesus says: “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 7:22-23]

But to the tax collector and all repentant sinners, Jesus Christ will say: “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” – [Matthew 25:21]

But basically, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done so far in your life. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed 5 banks or 75. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently addicted to drugs or alcohol. It doesn’t matter if you’re a stripper or a drug lord. Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for ALL of mankind’s sins! And no sin is too great for the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive, save for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit! He can take what is UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and help change them into a RIGHTEOUS PERSON! 

Jesus Christ will save ANYONE who truly calls upon his name from the depths of their being. No prayer will go unanswered for those who really, truly pray to get to know Jesus Christ and that means the prayer from the depths of their spirit!

But if you want to get to know Jesus Christ and have him save you FROM YOUR SINS and help you overcome your sins and your addictions, you must pray for Jesus Christ to save you and you must do so, NOW! (And believe the prayer with your whole entire mind, heart, and spirit). Every SECOND of your life spent without Jesus Christ leads you one step closer to hell and/or eternal condemnation. And like I said, death comes to us all. We NEVER know when we’re gonna die. All those who die without Jesus Christ in their lives go to eternal condemnation in the flames for eternity. So please don’t be one of those people, folks!

If you’re an atheist/agnostic that’s having trouble believing in Jesus Christ or God or the concept of a God, then I would ask you to PRAY to believe (but mean the prayer 100% in your heart) and also check out the following website that lists SEVERAL ancient historical non-Christian sources which confirm Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven.

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

And again, I pray that each and every soul who reads this will become saved from their sins in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ before it’s too late. Amen.

How to Get Saved and STAY “Saved”…(UPDATED)

Someone once coined the phrase “once saved, always saved”. But we know from the word of God that that teaching is FALSE! Why? Lets examine the biblical evidence.

Jesus said in John 14:15 (New Testament, book of John, chapter 14, verse 15) “if you love me, keep my commandments”.

And that doesn’t JUST mean the 10 commandments in the bible. No, it goes much deeper than that. Jesus Christ was also talking about his teachings on the Sermon on the Mount (New Testament, book of Matthew, chapters 5-7), as well as several other New Testament teachings, along with all the “biblically sound” things the Holy Spirit tells you *specifically* to go do NOW in our lives, such as “donate all your leftover food/clothes to the poor”, “talk to your atheist friend about me”, “go witness to people on Youtube, WordPress, Facebook, etc. about me”, “get rid of all your books/movies/music that doesn’t glorify me, Jesus Christ Almighty”, etc.

In other words, the saying “once saved, always saved” is a lie from Satan! Cause lets not forget that Jesus ALSO said in Matthew 7:21 (New Testament, book of Matthew, chapter 7, verse 21) not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father in heaven.

In other words, Jesus Christ was  more or less saying in the bible that not EVERY single person who cries out to him or that claims to believe in him or calls themselves Christian will enter through the gates of the city of New Jerusalem, someday. ONLY those people that believe in him AND do what he says (which is the will of the Father in heaven) shall enter through the gates of the heavenly city called New Jerusalem, which will be created and brought forth, down from heaven.

But lets go to the book of Matthew where Jesus talks about JUST how difficult it is to enter into eternal paradise with him.

“Enter ye in at the straight gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and there are many who go in by it”  Matthew 7:13 (Matthew, chapter 7, verse 13)

“Because strait is the gate , and narrow is the way , which leadeth unto life and there are few who find it” Matthew 7:14 (Matthew, chapter 7, verse 14)

So in other words, in today’s world and society, anyone that worships or believes in Jesus Christ is considered “uncool”. So because of this, very few people will decide to worship Jesus Christ & come to him for salvation/forgiveness of their sins. Most people will try to “fit in” and do what everyone else is doing……..to try to fit in with the world and the times of today. They will take the “broad path” in life and chase after unrighteous things such as money, fame, fortune, materialism, lust, greed, pride, ambition, humanism, consumerism, etc.

However, a few SELECT people will decide TO worship Jesus Christ and accept his free gifts of salvation & everlasting life. But since the world is so seemingly “anti-Christian” these days, it will be very hard for these people to follow the way of Jesus Christ. They will be laughed at, mocked, ridiculed, put down, and possibly persecuted for their faith. Their way to God’s “truth” will be seen as “uncommon” or “narrow-minded”. Not to mention that many will fall victim to false doctrines in the churches, etc. And because of this, many will abandon & fall away from the faith in the Last Days (which we are currently living in).

On the other hand, you will have many people proclaiming themselves to be “Christians”, but yet, still don’t TRULY accept the Lord Jesus’s/Yeshua’s eternal truth. They are the Christians who still **knowingly** (even after being shown “the truth”) worship on the FALSE *Catholic/man-made* SUN-DAY SABBATH instead of the TRUE, BIBLICAL SATURDAY SABBATH (Friday Sundown to Saturday Sundown). Please remember that a Jewish day begins at sundown the night before…Also please remember that the Lord not only CREATED the 7th-Day Sabbath as a day of rest from all activity but THAT the 7th-Day Sabbath was also used as a “sign” of the covenant between he and his people!

[Side note: will the Lord Jesus judge the people who adhered to the Sunday sabbath and man’s traditions, UNKNOWINGLY? Well, we know that the 7th day Sabbath & the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (EVEN during Jesus’s time AND partaken of by Jesus & his disciples) ARE in the bible……so….? It’s not really something that I’d recommend that people be “taking chances” with, in regards to their eternal salvation….So please, people! Don’t take any chances, here! Do things the bible’s way and not by “tradition’s way”! [As for all the poor folks out there that adhere to mankind’s traditions “unknowingly”, I’ll let the Lord Jesus Christ be the judge!]

They are the Christians who seek to find “church” in a BUILDING [which is a FALSE, NON-BIBLICAL SYSTEM, by the way, for remember: “church” is NOT a building you GO TO, per say, for remember that each believer in Christ IS “the church”, according to the bible….although the bible DOES mention that we’re still supposed to assemble, as believers……so perhaps small “house churches” should start coming about, in these Last Days?], then forget God the rest of the week…..

They are the Christians who speak in Jesus’s name, then turn around and live in total and COMPLETE darkness, as if Jesus Christ didn’t truly mean anything to them/lukewarm Christians. They are the Christians who totally disregard the Old Testament altogether AS IF it doesn’t matter or doesn’t apply to us, TODAY (especially the 10 commandments). They are the Christians who say “who CARES about the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts or CELEBRATING THE 7TH-DAY SABBATH, those are JEWISH HOLIDAYS ONLY, and they don’t even apply to us anymore!”

But the brutal reality is that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts + 7th-Day Sabbath apply JUST AS MUCH TODAY as they did during the times of the Old AND New Testaments! For Jesus and his apostles celebrated ALL SEVEN of them (all 7 of the Lord’s Annual Feasts, that is), INCLUDING the 2 “minor” Feasts, with Jesus teaching in the Synagogues on the 7th Day Sabbath as well. Cause the bible says Jesus taught on the Sabbath. Back in biblical times, the Sabbath was NOT on Sun-day! And in the bible, Jesus *specifically* instructs his apostles to follow what he had shown them.

{And please remember that UNTIL the Lord shed his COMPLETE eternal truth on me, I USED to be one of those “lukewarm Christians” who tried to find “church” in a BUILDING, instead of in a body of believers, whom previously followed mankind’s traditions (Easter, Halloween) instead of God’s biblical traditions (Passover, Tabernacles,etc.) and also of whom celebrated on the Sun-day Sabbath, instead of the Saturday Sabbath. Yes, I had had a N.D.E. when I was little where I met Jesus face to face but I was not raised in the Christian Church, nor did I have anything to go by but ONE children’s illustrated bible. When I was 15 and got ahold of an actual KJV bible (church-version/non-illustrated), I was left with more questions than answers. 

Why? Because no-one was ever really there in my life to teach me THE TRUTH about these things! The only so-called Christian friend I had growing up was, for the most part, Catholic (and the Catholic Church, as you all know, is NOT biblical!) My learning about the THE TRUTH about these things only came after MUCH prayer and YEARS of research and introspection and this deep feeling within the gut of my SOUL that something about “modern day Christianity” and the way it was practiced was WRONG and didn’t line up with the bible! So please believe me when I say my heart GRIEVES over those Christians who don’t yet know the COMPLETE TRUTH about these things! I pray that the Lord will be most merciful to them and give them another chance/more chances to learn THE TRUTH before it’s too late!}  

However, BECAUSE mainstream Christianity has strayed away from its Jewish heritage, there will be VERY FEW Christians who attempt to even learn about these 7 Annual Feasts and the TRUE, BIBLICAL 7TH-DAY SABBATH (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) and how and why to celebrate them. They’ll be too busy celebrating in the PAGAN-ORIGINATED holidays such as Christmas and Easter and won’t even blink or think twice about what the Word of God says, concerning holidays.

(And by the way, did you know that God’s people will STILL be celebrating his holy, divine Feasts in the Millennial Kingdom, specifically The Feast of Tabernacles? So why would he require the Jews to celebrate them in the Old Testament, then tell Christians they didn’t have to celebrate them in the New Testament [nevermind the fact that Jesus and his disciples celebrated all 7 of them, plus the two “minor” feasts], and then once again command ALL to celebrate them during the times of the Millennial Kingdom?

Answer: He wouldn’t. The problem isn’t that they are “Jewish feasts”, the problem is that they are “BIBLICAL FEASTS” and nearly every Christian here in America today has totally disregarded them & disqualified them from their lives! And while many of them don’t know any better, those that do and STILL continue to disregard them are gonna be victims of God’s Wrath!!)

Remember that Jesus said in Matthew 5:17-18 “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the prophets; I am not come to destroy the prophets 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”.

In other words, Jesus is saying in this passage that though all the “temple ordinances” and “animal sacrifices” no longer applied since Jesus Christ himself BECAME the temple, that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts DO still apply (as Jesus Christ was “revealed” or “soon to be revealed” in EVERY ONE of these Feasts (which is WHY they still apply to us, today) and that the “law” of the 10 commandments won’t be abolished until ALL is fulfilled.

And the first heaven and Earth won’t pass away until around the time of Revelation, chapter 21:1-2! (And the REASON the “law” will be abolished around the time of Revelation 21-22 is because the law will no longer be needed, as all evil will be purged from the world. All that will be left is the saints of God/Jesus Christ, God/Jesus Christ, God the Heavenly Father, The Holy Spirit and his angels and heavenly hosts).

Therefore, Jesus Christ will test the hearts, the souls and the minds to see who really loves him and serves him and who doesn’t. That’s **WHY** the way to LIFE (which means, the way to Eternal Life & Salvation through Jesus Christ) is NARROW and HARD TO FIND and why there are FEW who find it. FEW.

“So how do I get saved?” one might ask. Simple. It is an 8-part process, as follows:

1. Believe in Jesus Christ and that he is the ONLY true son of God/God in the flesh and that he came and died on the cross for the free gift of salvation/forgiveness of mankind’s sins & everlasting life and also that he resurrected from the dead 3 days later and then ascended back to heaven 40 days later (Note: if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ already, you can always PRAY to believe. But you must mean the prayer with your heart, soul and mind…..otherwise, the Lord will not reveal himself to you).

2. Get baptized (FULL WATER IMMERSION) in the name of Jesus Christ IMMEDIATELY UPON VERY FIRST BELIEVING IN HIM! (Not only is baptism COMMANDED in the bible 7+ times, but it is supposed to represent the ceremonial “washing away of sins” and one way by which we receive the FREE GIFTS of the Holy Spirit & Everlasting Life; remember that the Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth and the very thing that’ll tell you “this is of God, this is NOT of God”, “Yeshua” (Jesus’s Hebrew/Aramaic name), etc. Also please remember that the early Christians in times of Jesus didn’t prolong baptism: they got baptized IMMEDIATELY upon believing in Him! (Which no doubt made their baptism(s) all the more powerful!) 

3. Accept Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior & thank him for giving his very LIFE during the crucifixion for forgiveness of your sins.

4. Acknowledge your sins and pray for forgiveness of your sins.

5. Repent of your sins. That means to give them up and stop doing them. Stop doing the things that are displeasing to God such as lying, stealing, drinking, gambling, having sex outside of marriage, participating in witchcraft, etc.

6. Continue to read the bible and pray and abide in the Lord’s ways. CONTINUE living a life that is PLEASING to be God by following the 10 commandments (as well as all other New Testament teachings given by Jesus, especially his teachings from Sermon the Mount in Matthew chapters5-7). Also pray a “sin check prayer” continually. “Lord, if there’s anything holding me back from you, please reveal it to me”. And then, if the Lord reveals sin to you, repent of it IMMEDIATELY! Don’t wait!

7. Go out and preach the gospel (the “good news”) to others. Remember that Jesus Christ commanded us in Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”

8. FORSAKE **ALL** THINGS PAGAN (INCLUDING PAGAN-ORIGINATED HOLIDAYS WHICH AREN’T EVEN MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE, BY THE WAY) AND START CELEBRATING THE TRUE, BIBLICAL 7TH DAY SABBATH AND 7 ANNUAL FEASTS OF THE LORD, OUTLINED IN LEVITICUS 23 IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND VARIOUS PASSAGES IN THE **NEW TESTAMENT**. REMEMBER THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT IS ACTUALLY A *CONTINUATION* OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, MINUS THE ANIMAL SACRIFICES/TEMPLE ORDINANCES SINCE JESUS *BECAME* THE SACRIFICE!

And once again, Matthew 5:17-18 states: “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the prophets; I am not come to destroy the prophets 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”. 

Some people might preach on a street corner, while others may preach through writing or Youtube videos. God gave each of us unique gifts in different ways. And we are to use those gifts to glorify the Lord God/Jesus Christ in the heavens!

And once we are at a time in our life where we are 100% “right with God/Jesus Christ”, we must CONTINUE serving Jesus Christ WITH ALL OUR MIGHT, until the day we die. That is the ONLY way we will have 100% assurance of salvation/entrance into eternal Paradise with Jesus Christ. For grace without works is dead, just as works without grace is dead, as well.

I pray that each and every soul who reads this will not only GET saved in the name of Jesus Christ but also STAY saved in the name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua. Amen.
