“Cultural Christianity” Vs. BIBLICAL Christianity

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

CULTURAL CHRISTIANS (as a whole) :

  1. Go to “church” every Sunday

  2. Pay tithes to “the church

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

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

  5. See nothing wrong with LGBT issues/BEING LGBT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?” (Matthew 7:22)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For it states in Revelation 14:11 “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  8. Those who take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Wide Gate Vs. The Narrow Gate: [Matthew 7:13-14]

Turn to just about ANY social media today (specifically Youtube, for example) and it seems that everybody wants to do what everyone ELSE is doing! [Just look at how many Shae Nae Nae videos there are on Youtube for instance, my goodness!]

And WHY is that, do you think?

What would drive a person to SO want to be like someone else, that they’re driven to make an entire VIDEO/etc. about it?

The answer lies within our own human need for “acceptance”. In retrospect, human beings tend to care more about fellow mankind/other people think of them, rather than what God Almighty/Jesus Christ thinks of them!

Someone once said that “where your money is, your heart is also”. And those words ring SO true, today! Just look at how many people spend most of their “take-away money” at shopping malls, movie theaters, casinos, restaurants, bars/liquor stores, on online videogames or “gossip magazines”, etc.? The number is quite staggering. (Especially among “Christians”!)

Mall interior in Prague, Czech Republic. MOVIE THEATRE 1 bruce jenner, laverne cox, mag cover

Now, am I personally condemning people spending their money at shopping malls and movie theaters,etc.? No. The point I’m trying to make is that when that’s ALL people want to do these days, instead of spending time in the Written Word of God (The Bible), then it becomes painfully obvious that they’re placing “entertainment”, “food” and “shopping” over God Almighty!

And what’s really sad in today’s world is that even many “Christians” themselves have now become PART of the “Mass Deception” that’s taking place in these last days! Many people who CALL themselves “Christian” now support things such as abortion, gay marriage, etc., without even blinking or thinking twice about it! And they will honestly look at you funny (the biblical-roots Christian, that is) for even do so much as BELIEVING the bible (King James Version) AND adhering to what it says! They will call you “old school”, “outdated”, a “hater”, a “bigot”, etc.!

Just take for example how many people would look at someone strange if they hadn’t stepped foot inside a shopping mall or movie theater in over a decade? Just like how many people today would look at someone as if they were the Devil if they didn’t agree with “same-sex marriage”, the celebration of “Pagan Christmas”, etc?

And among the college crowd, how many people would look at someone as if they were a “loser” of sorts if they didn’t participate in the following?

BROAD PATH49, COLLEGE PARTY1 premarital sex88college party  POT SMOKING WARCRAFT1

What’s even more sad is that America (as a whole) has now become an “anything goes” type of society (especially after the Supreme Court gay marriage ruling!) But like I said, the “gay rights movement”, at its very core, is actually nothing more than demanding the right to “sin freely”, without being told by anyone that what they’re doing is “sinful”.

And now, as a result of the gay marriage ruling, “other” groups of people are “demanding their rights to sin” as well (polygamists, incestors, pedos, you name it!) In fact, the media is very slowly desensitizing people to pedophilia (the TV show Toddlers & Tiaras was just the beginning!)

Look at the movie called “Bad Grandpa” for example, where a movie trailer on Youtube shows a little boy dressed up like a young female stripper, doing a sort’ve lap dance on stage, while the “grandpa” throws money at him! DIGUSTING! Plus I won’t even mention the U.S. govt’s endorsement of “Bacha Bazi” in Afghanistan or of all the current “dance competitions” in the U.S. that has young girls dressed – and dancing like – hookers! What has our nation come to, folks? ;( God’s wrath is DEFINITELY upon this nation!

Not to mention the NEW AGE/ENLIGHTENMENT MOVEMENT. The “all paths lead to one” thing……People think they can “find God” by chakra, meditation, incense, etc. In other words, people believe they can worship Buddha AND Jesus and “still be fine” on the Day of Judgement. OR they think they can worship other gods BESIDES Jesus (Buddha, Krishna, Joseph Smith, Allah, etc.) and still be considered “righteous” in God’s eyes on the Day of Judgement.

And on top of the New Age movement already in place, there’s also something called the ECUMENICAL and EMERGENT MOVEMENTS……The ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT is where they’re trying to merge all “Christian churches” with the Roman Catholic Church. The EMERGENT MOVEMENT is where they’re trying to incorporate “New Age philosophies and practices” INTO the “Christian Church” (as a whole).   

But the point I’m trying to make is that Jesus Christ called the path to Everlasting Life a NARROW WALK! He also said that FEW would find it! F E W….He also said that MANY who call themselves “Christians” will be ETERNALLY TURNED AWAY/PUNISHED by him on the Day of Judgement since they worshiped him “in vain” while living on Earth.

Meaning, they called themselves “Christian” but didn’t truly LIVE as one……They still worshiped on the false, PAGAN Sabbath (Sun-day), they mindlessly worshiped in the PAGAN HOLIDAYS (Easter, Christmas, etc.), they IGNORED his true, BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) and true, BIBLICAL Sabbath (Saturday – Friday sundown to Saturday twilight – please remember that a Jewish “day” begins at sundown the night before!)…………

They went to “church” every week but they blatantly ignored the homeless guy on the street, as they drove to/from the grocery store. They “went through the motions of prayer and bible study”, but only first after watching “the big football game” or their favorite movie/tv show, or after playing their favorite videogame or going to see a movie at the theater…..[And believe me, this goes JUST AS MUCH for ME, as it does for others!]

They bought “generous gifts” for others but then EXPECTED elaborate gifts in return. They called out in the name of Yeshua/Jesus but then turned around and held a grudge against someone (a friend, a family member, a coworker). They called themselves “Christian” but supported UNGODLY THINGS such as premarital sex, abortion, same-sex marriage/relationships, pornography, “gay rights”, etc. They talked about HOW Jesus/Yeshua would do things (especially at the End of Days) but they didn’t really have the TRUE FAITH that he would. Etc. etc……..you get the picture………..

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 thereatBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it – [Matthew 7: 13-14]

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]

Truth is, many “Christians” will find themselves in the lake of fire someday. And right before they’re thrown in, they’ll be asking Jesus 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?”, but the Lord Jesus will NOT hear them! Instead, he will say to them,I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“. OUCH!

Remember that James 4:4 states: “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”.

Translation? Being “in the world” (that means, being up to speed on fashion, trends, latest movies/music/videogames/celeb news) is “enmity with God”. Why? Because it technically means a person cares more about the latest fashion trends/music/movies/technological gadgets/etc. than they do Almighty God/Yeshua/Jesus Christ. So that, in effect, makes them a technical “enemy” of God/his written word in the bible.

On the contrary, to be “friends” with God/Yeshua IS to effectively be considered an “enemy” of the world. Think about how a person’s naturally considered a “loser” if they DON’T CARE about the latest fashion trends/music/movies/videogames/technological gadgets/etc. Believe me, there’s a whole spiritual reasoning behind it! Because Jesus said, “the world loves its own”:

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also” [John 15:18-20] 

So you have two choices and two choices, ONLY: LIVE for Jesus Christ by DENYING the world and the things OF this world (as a whole)……OR……live AS the world and with the things OF this world, place Jesus Christ and his written word in the bible on the back burner, live as though you don’t have a care in the world and suffer for an eternity in the flames later! The choice is up to you! But don’t say I didn’t warn you! 

THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL: PREYING UPON THE WEAK!

MANY a televangelist in today’s world begs for $$$$$! And I’ve always wondered WHY! Churches are “tax-exempt”. So WHY then do they need people’s money? Is it REALLY necessary? What’s more, all of that donation money is TAX FREE!

Rather or not this guy in the video down below is an actual atheist or not is besides the point! He’s actually done an extremely good “expose” on some of today’s most prominent “prosperity preachers”.

WARNING: there might be a few bare hints of bleeped out cuss words here and there in his “broadcast”, but his overall message is solid! Today’s prosperity preachers are PREYING upon the weak and feeble-minded!

But then again, don’t nearly ALL modern-day “Christian churches” more or less do that? Ask for DONATIONS upon DONATIONS upon DONATIONS from the weak and feeble-minded?

Many of today’s preachers have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them……..asking for $$$$$$$ and donations for ANY reason or for NO reason, professing to “speak in tongues” (which is a bunch of demonic *mumbo-jumbo*), preaching the “prosperity gospel” that “if you send money, God will bless you”, etc.,etc.

And when even a so-called ATHEIST has to come out against these people, you KNOW they’re really, really bad and corrupt! For if they weren’t corrupt at all, the so-called atheists and non-believers wouldn’t have a leg to stand on!

I’m just so SICKENED of all the LIES and CORRUPTION I see in the modern-day “Church” today (as a whole!) People are just SO lost! “Churches” themselves and those that run them (as a whole) are just SO LOST! And Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua is ANGRY!

They (as a whole) have DENIED HIS ALMIGHTY NAME! They (in tune with 2 Timothy 3:5 in the New Testament) are described by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ as “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away“. In other words, Jesus Christ tells us to TURN AWAY FROM SUCH PEOPLE!

Today’s “church” (as a whole), as I’ve stated time and time and time again, does NOT worship the TRUE Jesus Christ of the bible but instead, worships a false, profane PAGANIZED version of him! And it’s really no wonder since many of today’s preachers (as a whole) want your $$$, $$$$ and more $$$$$! Like I said, they have the spirit of “Leviathan” on them!

For we MUST remember that the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE! So why then do they need to “charge” for it? (Jesus Christ & his disciples never charged a SINGLE PENNY!) So why then do THEY need YOUR hard-earned work money, more than a poor, homeless guy sitting on a street corner with nothing to eat, for example? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! REALLY TRULY THINK ABOUT THAT ONE FOR AWHILE!

Jesus Christ told us in the New Testament to give to those in need. Well folks, I’m sorry but today’s preachers (as as a whole) are filthy RICH! They are NOT “in need”. True, many of them profess to use that money to “help others overseas” and to “help orphaned children in Africa” or this or that or what have you.

And while these are all good things and we SHOULD help people in need all over the world, why does it forever seem like none of these “mega-pastors” EVER truly help anyone in need (especially homeless or starving children) here in AMERICA? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS!

They want you to put money in their “coffers”, and yet, they completely IGNORE the fact that there’s thousands of starving/hungry children HERE IN AMERICA whose parents aren’t able to find or keep a job, or that has a job that pays WAY too little, etc.

And also: just where does all that money REALLY go, folks? Have you ever truly thought about that? Have you ever actually physically SEEN the “orphanage” that said preacher claims to want to raise money for? Have you ever actually SEEN images of the improved conditions of orphaned children in Africa, or even OF the individual “orphaned children” in Africa, for example? Have you ever actually SEEN a full, true, TRANSPARENT disclosure of a mega church’s “finances”? My guess is no.

On the other hand, have you ever noticed that most mega-pastors today have “high-tech expensive gadgets”, drive nice cars, live in NICE HOMES? Many unknowing people say, “they preach the Word of God all day, they DESERVE to live in a nice home and make lots of money”. REALLY? I wasn’t aware that Jesus Christ, according to THEM, was the God of Wealth & Money! However, we DO know that many “famous people” have sold their souls to THE DEVIL for money! So is SATAN the god of money, then? YOU be the judge!  

On the other hand, look at all the hard-working ministries out there that NEVER ask for a SINGLE DIME from people (like, this one for instance!). If they never ask for a single dime from people, then by deductive reasoning, that must mean that they’re paying with their own money for any “materials” for their ministry. 

In fact, I once had a person ask me if I accepted donations and I said in response “no, I don’t, for the gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE”. Therefore, I REALLY, truly hope that person took that statement of mine, applied it to their life, and FLEED from all “money-grabbing pastors” that only want their $$$$$$$ and nothing more!

Have you ever ONCE known a disciple of Jesus to say to one of the ancient Jewish or Gentile people, “Give me $2 and I’ll cure you?” OFCOURSE NOT!

Folks, here’s the brutal reality. What do “mega-ministries” need money for? Today’s “church” (as a whole) is run like a BUSINESS! Donations, church “budgets”, church “real estate”, pastor’s salaries, etc.

If I myself can carry out a daily job IN ADDITION to the work I do here at my “mini-ministry” here on WordPress, and I don’t charge a SINGLE PENNY, then why do many “televangelic ministries” out there have to charge a kazillion dollars (metaphorically speaking) through “donations”, just to get people closer to God? I don’t get it.

I never ask for donations because I don’t need them nor want them. If the Lord wants me to start a “major project”, the Lord will somehow provide for my financial needs and I don’t need other people’s hard-earned work money to do it!!!!!!

In fact, money is the LAST thing on my mind these days! I’m FAR more concerned about all the “lost souls” out there and getting them saved (TRULY “Saved”, that is) in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ, THE BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST, NOT the Pagan one taught in the churches today! [But again, there are a couple of good ministries out there that ask for donations but do so for the all the right reasons……more about that later]. 

Nothing boils my blood to anger faster than seeing “spiritually corrupt” mega-pastors or big-time ministers asking for $$$$ all the time from the “church goers”. But see, folks? That’s the problem right then and there. Church is not a place you “go to”, for you MUST remember that the “true church”, the BIBLICAL CHURCH, is consisted of the body/assembly of believers THEMSELVES!

In other words, we don’t “go to church”, for we ourselves (each and every single one of us) ARE “the church”. Do you get what I’m saying, here?

Let me put this in a different way. Sally A “attends church every week”. But she forgets God the rest of the week. She sees “the church” as a BUILDING! She passes by NUMEROUS homeless people each day or poor people holding up signs asking for food.

But all she ever does is gawk at them as she passes by and says to herself, “What a bum! They should get a job” (as though a job was easily attainable for said person!) If a homeless person directly approaches her and kindly asks for money to buy food, she’ll retort, “Get a job! Then you won’t be homeless and hungry, anymore!” and walks off, without giving the homeless person a second thought, as she elegantly whisks her purse over her shoulder and thinks about her numerous other plans and errands for the day, etc. 

But Daniel B does NOT see the church as a “building” but rather sees HIMSELF (the true believer in Christ) as “the church”. For example, he sees a homeless man on the street one day and goes into a nearby restaurant and buys the homeless man and himself a meal.

He then kindly walks up to the homeless man afterwards and says, “Hi, how are YOU today, sir? My name is Daniel and I’d like to sit down with you for awhile and also give you a free meal today, if that’s alright with you”.

And then, once the meal is given to the man, Daniel might possibly eat his own meal WITH the man and talk to him for awhile, and ask how he came to be homeless and try to figure out a solution to the man’s plight. AS he’s doing this, he’ll also at the same time preach to the man the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ Almighty. THAT is true evangelism, folks! THAT is the TRUE, BIBLICAL “CHURCH MODEL”…….”being” the church, instead of “going to church”.

Many people, for example, will donate their food to a food pantry but they will NEVER stop to talk to a homeless person carrying a sign IN PERSON, etc. People will oftentimes BLAME the homeless individual for their own circumstances. But they need to THINK…….how would THEY feel if THEY were in that dire situation in life and nobody ever came to THEIR rescue and did nothing but look down on THEM and ridicule THEM? How would THEY feel?

Also, it is wrong to make assumptions about people. You don’t know that homeless person carrying a sign, personally. You have NO IDEA who they are, what they’ve been through, where they’ve been or where they’re going. You don’t even know just by looking at them if they’re to blame for their own circumstances or not. There’s plenty of homeless veterans out there, for example, that can’t find jobs for instance, because people are now looking down on the military, just like they did after the war in Vietnam! (Do your research, folks!)

Plus, I kid you not, there’s even people with PhD’s who are now homeless, due to no fault of their own! And these poor people can’t even find a job at a local McDonald’s, etc. since they are OVER-QUALIFIED! And my guess is that they probably don’t qualify for food stamps either since their level of education is much too high to “qualify” for them!

So these people are TRULY stuck! (And then, after awhile, when finding no job prospects, many of these people probably feel like giving up! But it’s “the true/biblical church’s” job (the believers in Jesus Christ, THEMSELVES), to make sure they DON’T give up, folks!)

True, some homeless people might be mean and violent. Some might try to mug or rob you. But you can’t let the fear of possible reactions keep you from doing God’s Work here on this Earth! Jesus Christ has given us all a divine commission while here on this Earth and that’s to do the Will of God. “What’s the will of God?”, some might ask. Answer: It is to do the Father’s Will. “What is the Heavenly Father’s Will?”, some might ask again. It is to read, follow and DIRECTLY APPLY the written word of God to our lives!

For example, don’t just READ about what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount of how we are to help those in need. Actively DO just that, in your own life! In other words, don’t just BELIEVE the gospel but actually DO the gospel! 

Most of us see atleast ONE homeless person with a sign every few days. How many of those people have we stopped and helped? How many? [And believe me, this goes just as much for ME as for anyone else!] True, you can make as MANY excuses in the book as you want to, as to why you didn’t help said person(s). But know this: on the Day of Judgement, the Lord Jesus Christ is gonna judge us for EVERY thought, word, deed and action.

In fact, Matthew 25: 31-40 states:

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 

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

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me”. 

However, in Matthew 25: 41-46, Jesus states:

Then shall he [Jesus Christ] say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”.

Therefore, a BIG part of following the Heavenly Father’s will seems to be helping those who are less fortunate than us (namely, homeless and poor people, etc.) The people in category 1 (the Sally A category) will end up being placed among the “goats” on the Day of Judgement. But the category II people (the “Daniel B’s”) will end up being pleasantly surprised as they’re placed among the “sheep” on the Day of Judgement.

Jesus Christ also says in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments” and in John 14:21 “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him”. However, Jesus Christ says in John 14:24 “He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me”.

And Matthew 5:17-18 states: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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”.

Which, in plain English, means that the 10 commandments and Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles, etc.) and 7th day Sabbath (Saturday) STILL apply/are REQUIRED by ALL of the Lord’s people (Jew and Gentile, alike) and that everything won’t be fulfilled UNTIL the times of Revelation, chapter 21-22! 

Therefore, I ask of you today. Are you a “Sally A” or a “Daniel B” type person? I pray that if you’re NOT a “Daniel B”, that you’ll learn to BECOME a “Daniel B” type of person……..and learn how to “BE” the church, instead of “going to church”.

But if you’ve been like a “Sally A” person most of your life, fret not! For there is still time for you to REPENT and learn to become more like a “Daniel B”! Whatever excuses you tried to use to justify your sin of not giving to homeless people in the past, or forgiving so and so for hurting you, etc., throw those excuses out the window and give them no merit, anymore! Ask the Lord Jesus to cleanse your mind, heart, body and spirit and to give you a new heart that’s after HIS own heart!

JESUS cared about the sick, the poor, the blind, the disabled, the lepers, etc. So don’t don’t WE, as a whole? JESUS cared about the homeless and those broken in spirit! So why don’t WE, as a whole?

How many of us have had a friend come to us in their emotional, financial, spiritual, etc,. time of need, and we thought in our hearts, “Blah blah blah, okay, enough already, stop talking, this is getting to be too emotionally draining for me, I can’t take it anymore!” as we sat or stood there and said over and over again, “uh huh, uh huh”, while only halfway listening to them, in response? [Ahem……Guilty, here. And the Lord convicted me of that so strongly….so let that serve as a warning to you all!] 

Just like how many of us have passed a homeless person carrying a sign or signs on the street and thought to ourselves, “get a job, you bum!” Or have gone to church our while lives, thinking that “attending church” would be enough for us to be in “good standing” with God/Jesus Christ Almighty? Probably a heck of alot more of us than we would care to admit!

Matthew 7:13-14 talks about JUST HOW HARD IT IS to get into the “sheep” category of Jesus Christ’s Judgement, someday: 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 thereatBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it“.

In other words, obeying the will of God in heaven is a NARROW WAY. Which means VERY FEW PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW IT! Think for example, of how many “Christians” support gay ‘marriage’ and gay adoptions, today! That is an example of Christians following the BROAD PATH, the one that leads to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!

Here, I’ve attempted to make a Youtube video that illustrates the major differences between the BROAD WAY and the NARROW WAY. And there’s so much more I wanted to add in the video but I had to pick and choose the most important pics due to time constraints. But hopefully the video will give you a more “clearer” visual picture of the meaning of the Matthew 7:13-14 passage!

And here, Paul Washer gives a sermon on what the NARROW WAY is:

But I ask of you RIGHT NOW…….before you give another $1 to ANY ministry, ask yourself if that ministry:

  1. Preaches that we HAVE no sin since “Jesus already payed for our sins”
  2. Preaches that you must “sow seed” (GIVE MONEY) in order to RECEIVE MONEY or blessings
  3. Proclaims to “speak in tongues” (which is honestly nothing more than *demonic babble*)
  4. Proclaims to “immediately heal” “ailments” in the name of Jesus through the television or computer screen, without ever having seen said person with said “ailment” IN PERSON 
  5. Is purposely non-transparent or “vague” about their finances and “budget”
  6. Preaches on SUNDAY (the FALSE Sabbath)
  7. Partakes of FALSE/PAGANIZED holidays such as Christmas, Easter, etc.
  8. Teaches that the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost) are “Jewish feasts, ONLY”
  9. Teaches that Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ
  10. Teaches that the “Christian church” has replaced Israel
  11. Preaches that God WANTS you to be wealthy
  12. Etc.

If a ministry you’re “thinking” about donating to displays any of those 12 signs, don’t walk away from that ministry, FLEE!

However, if a ministry displays any of the following 12 signs, they might possibly be an “OK” ministry to donate to (provided you have the TRUE finances for it and provided the Lord and the ministry itself *humbly* LEADS you to do so):

  1. Preaches that we’re all sinners and that we need to REPENT of our sins!
  2. Preaches the “Jewishness” of Jesus
  3. Celebrates in and STRONGLY encourages people to celebrate in the TRUE, BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, Trumpets, etc.)
  4. Worships on the true, BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath (Saturday – Friday sundown to Saturday sundown: please remember that  a Jewish “day” begins at sundown, the night before!)
  5. Does NOT preach that the modern day “church” has replaced Israel
  6. Does NOT preach that God wants you to be wealthy
  7. Preaches about the importance of actively DOING the Word of God, not just reading about it in the bible!
  8. Preaches that even JEWS themselves need to be saved in the name of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty!
  9. Is totally upfront about their finances and their budget. As in, you can clearly see where all your money’s going. You can see actual physical body evidence of it being money well spent for the kingdom of God.
  10. Does NOT proclaim to speak in tongues, per say
  11. Does NOT preach that you must “send money” in order to be blessed by God!
  12. ****Talks about THE TRUTH about the times we’re living in as it pertains to bible prophecy, and THE TRUTH about the “abominable sins” of homosexuality and abortion, etc.****
  13. In other words, if you’re going to “donate” to a ministry AT ALL, atleast make sure to ONLY donate to a ministry that TELLS YOU THE TRUTH ABOUT THESE THINGS!   
  14. But a good general rule of thumb is not to “donate” to 97% of today’s “ministries”! Why? BECAUSE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA ALMIGHTY IS FREE, AND WILL **ALWAYS** BE FREE!

For Jesus Christ said in John 8:38 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. And guess what? Jesus Christ never charged a SINGLE PENNY for his gospel of Salvation! So why should WE? Think about that long and hard, folks!

One end-times ministry out there I enjoy listening to is the one called “Open Your Eyes People”, led by Anita & Ignacio Fuentes. They preach AGAINST homosexuality and “politically correct”, AGAINST abortion, tell you THE TRUTH about what the bible says on many topics, while also teaching the IMPORTANCE of bible prophecy and HOW it pertains to End Times events, while also preaching the IMPORTANCE of getting right with God/Jesus Christ and STAYING right with him!

They preach about sin, being born again, REPENTING of sin, READING **and** OBEYING the bible, the TRUTH about things in the News, etc. Basically, they preach THE TRUTH about things — as a whole — and don’t give you any watered-down messages like you get in the churches today! They’re RAW and HONEST! And YES — they DO ask for donations but the money is well spent! They hold bible prophecy conferences, they send out free bibles to those who need one, they send out welcome packages to new Christians or those who’ve returned to Christ after a long hiatus!  

As for all the OTHER ministries out there that ask for money? Specifically ones like Joel Osteen, Benny Hin, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, Mike Murdock, Robert Tillman, etc.? These people are wolves in sheep’s clothing! They DON’T give a care about your Salvation or your walk with God! Can you EVER imagine Jesus Christ saying to people, “the love of money is the root of ALL righteousness?” OFCOURSE NOT! And when I hear over the radio things like, “we’ll send out our full entire CD set for 50% off for a donation of any amount, etc.”, I’m always silently thinking to myself, “why can’t these people just send this stuff out for free if they REALLY, truly care about all the lost souls out there so much?”

But then again, maybe it’s just my own frustration talking, there. I myself have sacrificed my OWN hard-earned work money for my “witnessing projects”, so why can’t those mega-pastor folks who ask for money all the time do the same? It honestly reminds me of beggars in the street. Beggars NEED food and money though, since they HAVE NONE. What are mega-pastors’ excuse? Ya know? Jesus’s disciples never asked for money to preach the gospel. Am I missing something, here?  

But in fact, it seems quite fitting when Jesus said in Matthew 19:24 “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” and in 2 Timothy 3:4-5 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” and 2 Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth”.

James 1:22 states: “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves”.

Can it get ANY MORE CLEARER THAN THAT, PEOPLE? Ask yourselves that!

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.

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

URGENT END-TIMES MESSAGE: GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICA & “THE CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE):

The ONLY reason that evil’s been able to PROLIFERATE in this country (the U.S.) and the WORLD today is DUE to the “lack of action” of the “church”. Let me explain:

The VERY first mistake of all Christian churches (at their onset) was to incorporate a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sun-day) and “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Year’s, Halloween, etc.) into the church. This is what originally STARTED the “Great Apostasy” within the Lord’s people. And the SECOND mistake of all Christian churches was to apply for “tax-exempt status”, thus, allowing the STATE to become their head, instead of having JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY as their head (& chief cornerstone). And the THIRD mistake of the “churches” has been giving a “thumbs up” to things that are clearly FORBIDDEN in the bible (abortion, divorce, sodomy/homosexual lust, materialism, etc.)

Pretty much 97% of ALL Christian churches since the time of 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea are APOSTATE [though a VERY SMALL percentage — perhaps 3% or so — are still TRUE to the BIBLICAL Judeo-Christian gospel of Jesus Christ!] So then is it REALLY any surprise then that Christian “churches” TODAY (as a whole) are a FAR, FAR cry from what they were during the time of Jesus? And is it really any surprise with what rate of speed the “churches” (as a whole) have openly accepted things that are CLEARLY CONDEMNED in the bible?

Today, in the year 2015, the “church” (as a whole) seems to be “bowing down” to CULTURE and to MAN, rather than to God/Jesus Christ Almighty! For example, the “churches” of today accepting “openly sexual clergy members” and “GAY MARRIAGE WITHIN THE CHURCH: THE **ULTIMATE ABOMINATION?** That’s just the icing on the cake, as far as apostasy goes. What’s next? Will churches also soon “legitimize” incest, polygamy/commune marriages, pedophilia, prostitution, etc? Where does it all end? For if “sodomy” is okay, what OTHER sins are “okay”? (Do you see where I’m going with this, people?)

And then people have the audacity to turn around and wonder WHY the world is “so evil”, today! It’s because “the churches”, and people in general (as a whole) have turned their back on GOD/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! And we know from the pages of Holy Writ that whenever a nation (as a whole) “forgets God”, he sort’ve leaves them to their own devices for awhile so people (as a whole) OF that nation can come to know what a world without Him is like:

He does this part out of anger/grief over their blatant sin of defying Him & part out of Tough Love, in order to try to draw people and/or a nation (and even specifically the world) back TO Him! That’s why there’s been such “brutal attacks” in the NAME of Islam, lately, for example……the Lord Jesus of the bible is SHOWING us first-hand what the long-term CONSEQUENCES are of following or “enabling” a false religious system like Islam, Roman Catholicism, etc. You have Islamic ISIS members beheading Christians in Middle East, etc., and then you a SLEW of child-molesting Roman Catholic priests.

But in fact, I’ve even heard a horrifying case of some Hindus BURNING 2 CHRISTIANS **ALIVE** IN AN OVEN – A WELDING-TYPE OVEN, much like the Nazis did! (ISIS must be proud!) And see, it’s one thing to not agree with a “religion” but you when you have to resort to DEATH & DESTRUCTION to get your point across? That’s a fairly good indicator that you don’t follow the true God of the bible but instead, follow a FALSE GOD, A **CREATED BEING**, which is SATAN!

The God of the bible is the one and only TRUE GOD — for he created everything & EVERYONE in the universe, INCLUDING the angels! But Satan is NOT god of the universe! He is merely a CREATED BEING with only LIMITED POWER! So why worship a being with LIMITED POWER (SATAN/ALLAH/**PAGANINZED ROMAN CATHOLIC JESUS**) when you can worship the Almighty God/BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST of the bible that has INFINITE/EVERLASTING POWER and that can ETERNALLY SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SINS?

Islam teaches that one doesn’t know for 100% sure if they will enter “Eternal Paradise” or not; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY gives the true follower of Jesus Christ Almighty the 100% ASSURANCE of Salvation and “Eternal Life”. Roman Catholicism teaches that “good works” will save a person; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY in the bible records: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” [Ephesians 2:8-9]

 Notice how BOTH of those religious systems MOCK the holy bible by introducing FALSE/UNBIBLICAL “doctrines” such “Jesus was NOT the son of God” [Islam] or that the VIRGIN MARY was IMMACULATELY CONCEIVED [Roman Catholicism] or that Genesis is not true [Roman Catholicism].  

But that brings me to my next point: If morality is subjective, WHO gets to decide what’s “sin” and what’s not? If there’s NO general consensus, that would just be chaos and disorder. But Jesus is NOT a God of chaos & disorder, he is a True, Eternal God that’s full of organization & divine order. If our planet, the Earth, was shifted just a few degrees off its axis, life on Earth would NOT be possible. And contrary to what some “scientists” might believe, our universe is not “chaotic”, it’s neatly organized and ordered.  

There is a REASON he placed certain stars and planets where he did, for example. Just like there is a REASON he created his divine “moral code”. Our laws are actually BASED on God’s laws/the 10 commandments. Without God’s laws in place, there WOULD be no morality. And to say one can have morality without God/Jesus Christ’s REDUNDANT since, like I said, who would create the “laws” of mortality in a “subjective morality” and how would such “subjective morality laws” be enforced?

The answer is, subjective mortality can NOT be enforced because it’s well, subjective. For example, one person might think it’s an utter sin to kill another person for insurance money while another may not. So who gets to be “right”, in the subjective morality model? If each man/woman/child on this Earth had a “subjective morality model” and was only for themselves, humans on the Earth wouldn’t last too long, now, would they? We all would’ve killed each other off by now……because hey….with no global human rights laws and no murder laws because “morality is subjective”, what would stop people from doing so, in that case?

Answer: the ONLY way to have “order” is to have a “moral code”, and the only way to have a moral code is to have one set in stone. And God literally set his 10 commandments in stone. And later on, The Sermon on the Mount went much deeper and talked about THE INTENTION of each of the 10 commandments. Therefore, the Sermon on the Mount actually EXPANDED on the 10 commandments, so those Christians out there that try to claim that the 10 commandments were done away with are SADLY MISINFORMED!    

But anyways, the church (as a whole) was SILENT when it came to the issues of divorce, abortion, adultery, idolatry, materialism, sodomy/gay relationships, gay marriage, etc. And IN doing so, it just gave the dark side the fuel they needed to start their DEPRAVED FIRE over mankind (and the church as a whole). In fact, in today’s world, evil seems to be “winning”. Why is that, do you think?

Because most certainly, if “the church” (as a whole) had STOOD ITS GROUND on those issues, I can guarantee there wouldn’t be 1/10th as much evil as we see in the world TODAY! In fact, the dark side (as a whole) would be forced to live in the closet, as if THEY were the “religious minority”. But sadly, in the year 2015, those living on the Dark Side of forces seem to be in the “spiritual majority”, while the rate of BIBLICAL-ROOTS CHRISTIANS (those who take the bible, End Times prophecies, the Lord’s *7th-Day Saturday Sabbath* AND the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays SERIOUSLY) seems to be dwindling. My, how far this country and this world, has fallen! ;(

Yet, all throughout the bible, God was much more harsh with his OWN people, as a whole (when they most seriously “acted up”) than with foreign peoples. In fact, His Wrath starts WITHIN the house of God/his OWN people, and THEN branches outward. Why? Because he simply EXPECTS MORE from his OWN people, rather than from OTHERS who are NOT part of “His people”. Lets face it, all the people living in the world today that DON’T adhere to Him? He EXPECTS them to “act up” and isn’t surprised when they do so. But when the Lord’s OWN PEOPLE act up? THAT’S when He, the great Lord, gets angry & disappointed. Why? Because the Lord’s people know better!

In other words, “the church”, as a whole, should know better than to “legitimize/endorse” behaviors that are SIN in the bible (such as divorce, abortion, adultery, sodomy/lust, materialism, idolatry, humanism, etc.) That’s WHY the Lord God’s FAR more angry with “the church” today (as a whole) than he is with all the non-believers, etc. Now, that’s not to say that the Lord ISN’T angry with the scoffers/mockers/etc., for He most certainly IS! It’s just that He’s FAR more angry with his own “spiritual children” (that he expects MORE FROM) than he is with all others.

And I don’t know alot but I DO know this: the Lord God Almighty is calling “THE CHURCH” (as a whole) to REPENTANCE! Jesus Christ is LONGING for His Children (the Church/Body of Believers) but the Church/Body of Believers is NOT ready! The Church (as a whole) is FAR from ready!

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee” – [Revelation 3:3]

In the above passage, Jesus Christ is talking to “The Church” (as a whole). In fact, in ALL passages in Revelation talking about “the churches”? It is of MY personal belief that the Lord Jesus Christ is actually talking to the “The Church” (as a whole). In the book of Revelation, there’s 7 churches and 7 spirits of God.

And in my humble opinion, the 7 churches can mean literal churches (at the time of Jesus?) but they can also mean 7 different TYPES of Christians and/or 7 different TYPES of spiritual relationships with the Lord. However, taken together as a WHOLE, one can gather ALL the “grievances” that the Lord Jesus Christ HAS against the 7 churches and take it AS A WHOLE! Just like whatever Jesus Christ APPLAUDS about any of the 7 Churches, one can also likely take THAT as a whole, as well! (HOWEVER, the REWARDS in New Jerusalem — the new heavenly city — for those few REDEEMED by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ  — are going to differ from person to person, someday!)

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7: 21-23Not 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“.

And in Matthew 7: 13-14, Jesus said: 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 thereatBecause STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE [Jesus Christ Almighty], and FEW there be that find it

What’s really, really sad to me is that many of today’s “Christians” automatically assume that they’re gonna spend eternity with Jesus Christ someday and “be saved from Hell/Eternal Condemnation”, as it were. But what Jesus Christ is SAYING in the above 2 passages proclaims that will NOT be the case! For Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua says that there will be VERY FEW people that are redeemed by Him. VERY FEW.

So how utterly terrifying would that be, if a “Christian” THOUGHT they were gonna enter into the heavenly city someday called “New Jerusalem”, ONLY to be later turned away and cast into OUTER DARKNESS in the LAKE OF FIRE **FOR ETERNITY** with all the OTHER nonbelievers, scoffers, mockers, etc.? That would be utterly terrifying, INDEED! 

And I can just picture, now……..Christians (right after the Judgement) saying to Jesus Christ the King: “But I went to church every week, I donated to charity, I cast out demons in your name, I increased the church attendance ten-fold, I did this, I did that!” with Jesus Christ just giving them a look of retort AND angered/grieved sadness saying:“I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.

On other OTHER hand, I can picture some of the more “humble” ones………the Christians that AREN’T so arrogant in their thinking, that think to themselves………“Man…….the Lord’s done SO MUCH for me, and for Him, I’ve done SO very little, there’s SO MUCH MORE WORK for the Lord that I COULD be doing, the work I’ve done for Him already ISN’T NEARLY enough!” with Jesus Christ the King proudly & joyously saying: “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

And in today’s world, there’s much “discussion” and “viewpoints” and “teachings” on the bible and bible prophecy. I think the Lord purposely allowed it to be set up this way in the Last Days in order to test the hearts, souls and minds. Why? Because He wants to know our true character and rather or not we truly love Him or not.

Remember during the time of the New Testament when Jesus asked Peter THREE TIMES, “Peter, do you love me?” and how Jesus answered the third time, “then feed my sheep”? The Lord Jesus was testing Peter’s character. And if He was testing PETER’S character (his most FAVORITE disciple, or so it SEEMS), you can bet your toosh that Jesus continually tests OUR character! And he HAS to do so in order to “refine” us and “refine our faith”. Because if he DIDN’T continually test us, he’d be just like a P.E. Teacher who let all his children run amok around the gym, with no discipline or supervision! Think about it, folks!

But I think some of the “marker points” He will use to “divide the wheat from the tares” will likely be the following:

1). Does a Christian BELIEVE the bible (front to back) LITERALLY, from Generations to Revelation? 

2). DOES A PERSON LOVE JESUS MORE THAN THEY LOVE THEIR OWN LIVES? ARE THEY WILLING TO DIE FOR JESUS, IF NEED BE?

3). Has a Christian read the entire bible for THEMSELVES (instead of leaning on traditions of man/pastors/priests) and have they hungered and thirsted for righteousness, above all other things?

4). Does a Christian openly accept (or tolerate) behaviors that are CLEARLY SIN in the bible such as divorce, adultery, sodomy/lust, homosexuality, materialism, greed, pride, envy, IDOLATRY, gluttony, abortion, humanism, etc? 

5). Does a Christian try to “earn” their Salvation with “works”, instead of by FAITH?

6). Does a Christian give PRAISE & THANKS/THANKSGIVING to the Lord Jesus Christ continually, where praise is due?

7). Does a Christian think “going to church every week” will save him or her?

8). Does a Christian still worship on a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sunday) and in “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Halloween) without a care or thought in the world about WHY “today’s Christianity” is so seemingly PAGAN, above all else?

9). Does a Christian HAVE strong faith in Jesus Christ and His Almighty Power?

10). Does a Christian GIVE to others freely, without expecting ANYTHING in return?

11). Does a Christian “hold a grudge” against anyone?

12). Does a Christian feel MAJOR REMORSE over any and all sin in their life? And has a Christian PRAYED FOR FORGIVENESS of such sin? And has a Christian STOPPED DOING said sin(s)?

13). Does a Christian love others more than they love themselves? And does a Christian have any “harsh judgement” in their hearts for any others?

14). Has a Christian boldly stepped out in faith and proclaimed the gospel to others?

15). Does a Christian have a PERSONAL one-on-one/NON-COMMERCIALIZED spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? As in, Jesus Christ is closer to them than even their very own bestfriends (much similar to Enoch in the Old Testament)?

16). Has a Christian warned OPEN HOMOSEXUALS/BISEXUALS about the SIN of sodomy and the realities of hell/lake of fire/eternal condemnation?

17). Plus many, many more! 

But one thing I DO know is THIS: The Lord Jesus Christ is trying to prepare HIS BRIDE (“The Church”) for his soon glorious return in the clouds of heaven! That is when he’ll snatch up His Bride, in anticipation for “The Wedding Supper Of The Lamb”, one of the most glorious events in Heaven’s history! 😉 

So please, I ask you, I beg of you, I IMPLORE YOU, and I PLEAD WITH YOU, from the bottom of my hearts and the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL……If you’re not right with Jesus Christ today, then I pray today that you GET RIGHT WITH HIM and DO NOT TARRY! And if you’ve NEVER come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before and/or you’re not a believer in Jesus Christ, then I pray that TODAY is the day of your Salvation in Christ Jesus! 

Time is of the essence! Tomorrow’s not guaranteed! And Eternity is FOREVER! Now is NOT the time to be playing with your Eternal Salvation, folks! Just like now is not the time for “The Church” (as a whole) to be playing games with ITS SALVATION (as a whole). 

The warning call has been sounded all across the board in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ by the Lord’s BIBLICAL servants of 2015. Will YOU listen? Will “I” listen? Will the “U.S. nation – as a whole” listen? And will “The Church” (as a whole) listen? For your sake and for my sake, I sure hope so! Amen. 

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:

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
