The Lord Is My Joy & My Salvation! ;)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Lord is MY JOY & MY SALVATION! 😉

“Cultural Christianity” Vs. BIBLICAL Christianity

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

CULTURAL CHRISTIANS (as a whole) :

  1. Go to “church” every Sunday

  2. Pay tithes to “the church

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

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

  5. See nothing wrong with LGBT issues/BEING LGBT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  8. Those who take any and all marriage vows SERIOUSLY

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strongholds: What’s YOURS?

I’ve most recently come across a most powerful Christian sermon about strongholds.

“Ah”, I thought. “I know what a stronghold is……it’s this dire need to hold onto something……some sin or ‘indulgence’ that a Christian person refuses to give up in their lives”.

Well, that’s only PART of the definition……A stronghold is defined as “a place that has been fortified so as to protect it against attack”. However, there can be GOOD strongholds or BAD strongholds, depending. Therefore, which one do YOU have?

castle STRONGHOLD

Let us examine. Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Translation? Nobody’s perfect. Which means we ALL have our “strongholds” in our lives……those things/sin(s)/people which we’re refusing to give up. And most of the time, we don’t even REALIZE it’s a “stronghold” to begin with!

Examples?

  • A love of food or certain kinds of food (especially when it gets to the point of obsession)
  • A relationship that doesn’t honor Yeshua/Jesus (e.g., premarital sex, abuse, one person’s not a believer in Jesus, etc.)
  • A love of money or material things
  • An obsession with sports, music, entertainment, social media, celeb gossip
  • A holding on to hurt, resentment, anger and pain
  • An obsession with a person, place or thing
  • A REFUSAL to lay all your hopes, fears, dreams, resentment, anger, pain, and hate at Jesus’s feet (spiritually speaking)
  • A REFUSAL to acknowledge there’s any sort of “problem” in our lives
  • A REFUSAL to seek help for any and all “problems” in our lives
  • A love of drugs or alcohol
  • A love of lust and/or partying
  • A REFUSAL to do the Lord’s will
  • A REFUSAL to seek reconciliation with someone we’ve wronged or who has wronged US
  • A REFUSAL to trust or believe in God/Jesus Christ and/or a REFUSAL to believe in HIS holy words in the bible
  • The need for everyone’s approval
  • ETC.

And when it comes to GOOD STRONGHOLDS, there is ONLY ONE good stronghold I can think of and that is 100% TRUST IN ALMIGHTY YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST, THE NAME ABOVE ALL OTHER NAMES!

Ofcourse, THAT type of faith is hard to come by. It doesn’t come easy and it sure as HECK doesn’t come overnight. It’s a PROCESS, people. It is a LEARNED faith, bit by bit and little by little.

Do you think Abraham [in the Old Testament] was BORN with the type of faith he had? Granted, there IS such a thing as predestiny, I believe, BUT…….Abraham likely didn’t, for theoretical example, yell up at the sky at 2 years old: “yes Lord, I’ll leave for the promised land TOMORROW!” Obviously, Abraham had to be shaped and molded INTO that faith, INTO that “righteous stronghold” of the Almighty God!

For EVEN Abraham himself apparently had some “unrighteous strongholds”, as we read in Genesis 12 that when there was a famine in the land, Abraham had “unrighteous doubt”/”fear” in his heart when he came near to the land of Egypt with his wife Sarai. Why? Because his wife Sarai was “stunningly beautiful” and Abraham feared that once the Egyptians saw how beautiful Sarai was, that they’d kill him to get to HER. So Abraham told Sarai to tell the Egyptians that she was his “sister”!

And sure enough, as it turned out, the Egyptians were overly generous to Abraham on the count of Sarai. HOWEVER, when the Lord plagued Pharaoh’s household and servants because of Sarai, that’s when Pharaoh realized that he had been “duped” by Abraham and told Abraham to take his wife Sarai and immediately depart Egypt!

This is just ONE example of when an Old Testament prophet displayed an “unrighteous stronghold”. Another example is Moses. When the Lord God told Moses to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go, he was sore afraid. He made all sorts of “excuses”:

“And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The Lord hath not appeared unto thee” – Exodus 4:1

“And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue” – Exodus 4:10

 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send” – Exodus 4:13

Think how YOU would feel if you were needing someone to do something and they kept protesting and making excuses! Pretty irritated, right? So it was with God when Moses kept making excuses (poor Moses, though! That must have been a very hard thing for him to do – face Pharaoh and the people with his implied *speech impediment*! But still……) 

Moses’s excuses/justifications and Abraham’s lack of faith when it came to traveling with his “stunningly beautiful” wife can serve as a message to us ALL. What type of “strongholds” do YOU have (if any) and how do YOU deal with them?

Not sure if this will help anyone out here but here it goes. These are the types of “strongholds” that I myself have been silently suffering from in 2015, not even fully realizing that they WERE “strongholds”, to begin with…..UNTIL the Lord opened up my eyes:

  • Food (specifically, certain types of food in the middle of the day that I would “think” about buying the next day, then would buy in bulk the next day, and even then, that STILL wasn’t good enough. I would browse online menus from several different places, trying to decide what food I should buy each time. My cabinets and my refrigerator also became full of food oftentimes, and half the time, a part of the stuff would even go uneaten, until I was forced to throw them out. CRAZY, huh?)
  • I seemed to have left my “first love” (spiritually), Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ [Revelation 2:4]
  • I had somewhat acted out in anger towards certain things at work without stopping to think rationally first about the situation(s)
  • I kept trying to tell myself in the back of my mind that that I didn’t really need to read the bible anymore, since I “already knew what’s in there”, while advising others to read theirs all the time (OUCH!)
  • I REFUSED to do all the things the Lord told me to do/say in the year 2015, making excuses
  • I struggled (and still struggle, somewhat) to keep my apartment clean (& organized)
  • I seemed to have a “why me?” attitude many times
  • I was seemingly overcome with fear and partial lack of faith (as in, I seemed to be struggling with the constant thought that maybe I wasn’t doing enough for God’s Kingdom, maybe the Lord wouldn’t consider me righteous enough to enter into the gates someday, etc.)
  • I obsessed over this guy at work that I couldn’t have (Never dated the guy or anything, just obsessed over him, mostly)
  • ETC.

Now, the POINT I wanted to make is that those “admissions” (to ourselves, to God and to others) are very, very personal and hard to make. But ONCE we make them, we’re one step closer to knocking down those castle walls of “unrighteous strongholds”.

But how do I develop a RIGHTEOUS STRONGHOLD?“, one might ask. Well, first we have to have FAITH. How do we develop faith? The bible says in Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. Translation? Faith comes by hearing the written Word of God in the bible.

“But what about people that read the bible and STILL don’t believe?”, some might ask. My question: why NOT believe? For it takes FAR more faith to believe everything came from nothing than to believe that everything came from something (an Almighty Creator), don’t you think?

[For if you’re right and I’m wrong, I’ve lost nothing. But if I AM right, and YOU’RE wrong, you will have lost EVERYTHING, including your OWN SOUL! Is that an eternal chance you’d be willing to take, folks? I pray not!]

There’s many passages in the bible I like to read when I feel as though my faith is “weak” and they are the following:

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word” – Matthew 28: 5-8

HE IS RISEN!

And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day” – Matthew 28: 12-15

[[[[THE “JEWISH COUNCIL” PAYED THE ROMAN SOLDIERS ***LARGE SUMS OF MONEY*** TO LIE AND SAY THAT JESUS’S DISCIPLES STOLE HIS BODY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! However, that brings up several questions:

  1. How did they roll away the heavy stone without anyone noticing?
  2. Where is the body? All they’d have to do is find a body and no problem.
  3. Why would Jesus’s disciples knowingly offer themselves up for torchure and execution/death for something they knew was a lie? Obviously, Jesus’s disciples believed the angel of the Lord with all their hearts, souls and might and that he was resurrected! Cause nobody on the Earth that I know of would be willing to be torchured and die for a LIE, right?
  4. If Jesus didn’t truly resurrect, he would’ve been exposed as a fraud and “Christianity”/”Messianic Judaism” would’ve completely died within a day or two. But BECAUSE he resurrected and there were SEVERAL eyewitnesses to the fact (Christian AND non-Christian alike), Jesus’s resurrection has been proven as anything BUT a lie!]]]]

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” – Jeremiah 32:27

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” – Mathew 19:26

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” – Mark 11: 22-24

“Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour” – Matthew 15:28

GOD PARTING THE RED SEA:

And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians. 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore” – [Exodus 14: 21-30 in Old Testament]

THE LIONS DEN:

Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee. And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel. Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him. Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions? 

Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Then was the king exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his GodAnd the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den. 

Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you. I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian” – [Daniel 6: 16-28 in Old Testament] 

THE FIERY FURNACE:

Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews. They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever. Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king. Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up’. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. 

Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said,Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.” [Daniel 3: 8-30 in the Old Testament] 

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

———————

And that’s just a very small “sliver” of verses I am personally encouraged by. There’s SO many more, but for the sake of time and space, I must limit it to those few. But hopefully you will start to recognize and get rid of any unrighteous strongholds in your life. And as evidenced up above, even I myself (of all people) am not immune from having unrighteous strongholds from time to time.

Romans 3:23 expressedly states that we’re all sinners, who’ve fallen short of the glory of God! But when Almighty Yeshua/Jesus died on the cross for us, he died on the cross so that WE can be forgiven of our sins. But we have to ASK for that forgiveness and REPENT of sins in order to fully RECEIVE that forgiveness, folks! Jesus doesn’t extend his forgiveness to people who don’t want it. In other words, Jesus doesn’t FORCE salvation upon ANYONE…….he only graciously gives salvation to those who TRULY seek it. 

But in fact, imagine lava flowing down from a volcano. Imagine how HOT it is……visually focus on the mental imagery of the “lake of fire” pouring down out of the volcano. And then imagine being thrown alive into such a place……FOR ETERNITY! THAT is what Jesus died on the cross to protect us from, folks! (God’s Eternal Judgement). Who in their right mind, after knowing the FULL realities of hell and/or lake of fire would want to go there? Honestly? It boggles the mind, folks! 

On the other hand, read Revelation in the New Testament, chapters 21 and 22 to get a FULL PICTURE of what living in “God’s Paradise” is like. Who in their right mind, after reading that BEAUTIFULLY, HEAVENLY description wouldn’t want to go there? It boggles the mind, folks! It boggles the mind! And never ceases to amaze me! 

I oftentimes pray for my family, my coworkers and all my blog readers. But it’s very rare that I ask others to pray for ME. I guess it’s a pride thing. It’s hard for me to ask for help and to ADMIT to Almighty God and to others what my “unrighteous strongholds” are. But now that I HAVE admitted them to Yeshua/Jesus AND to you, please pray for me, folks! Please pray in the name of the Lord that I will be able to overcome the unrighteous strongholds that tried to take me down in 2015 and are still attempting to grab ahold of my spiritual ankle (sort’ve speak) in 2016! I need your prayers!

Thanks so much for reading and again, may Almighty Yeshua/Jesus bless you ALL in these last days! 😉 

 

 

 

 

WARNING: Learn from MY Mistake!!!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Check out the following 3 items

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

Not only green when summer’s here,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

VS……….

7 REQUIRED Festivals of the Lord:

  • Passover

  • Feast Of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast Of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast Of Trumpets

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT: BIBLICAL PROOF THAT JEWS NEED JESUS:

There seems to be this popular false teaching floating around today which states, “The Jews don’t NEED to be saved in the name of Jesus, since their Torah-observance and/or their already being born as Jewish ALREADY makes them righteous before God!” That would imply that a person being ethnically and/or spiritually Jewish is “enough”, in God’s eyes.

But let us go back in the bible during the times of the Old Testament. Abraham had TWO sons (Ishmael — by his bondwoman Hagar and Isaac — by his wife Sarah). Many Jews of today claim they are saved by being the “physical descendants of Abraham”, ALONE! However, God’s everlasting covenant in the Old Testament was with ISAAC, not Ishmael! So what does that mean in plain English, you might ask?

It means that God’s everlasting covenant is a SPIRITUAL COVENANT, not so much a physical one! And the spiritual covenant is brought about by FAITH! Faith in what, you might ask? Faith in the one and only true Messiah! Who is the Messiah? Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty! The bible is VERY CLEAR that Salvation only comes by grace through FAITH + obedience.

 

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

“So what does THAT mean, then?”, some may ask. It means that IN the true spiritual kingdom of God/Jesus and also IN the future Millennial Kingdom, there are absolutely NO distinctions between male and female, rich and poor, Jew nor Greek, for ALL obedient servants of Jesus Christ ARE HIS SPIRITUAL CHILDREN and are ALL considered CHILDREN OF GOD!

In fact, John 14:6 expressidly states: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

Translation? Jesus is saying there in that passage that he’s the ONLY way to Salvation, the ONLY way for forgiveness of sins, the ONLY way to receive eternal life, and the ONLY way to ESCAPE God’s ETERNAL WRATH! In other words, outside of HIM and him alone, there IS no “Salvation!”

In a previous post, I stated that the Hebrews/Jews were God’s chosen people and that to say otherwise was “demonic”. But I should’ve EXPANDED on what I meant by that. The Hebrews were God’s chosen people back in ancient biblical times, (pre-flesh appearing Jesus), YES! BUT…..in a world that became flesh-appearing Jesus, followed later by post-human flesh-appearing Jesus, (soon to be replaced once again by the PHYSICAL/FLESH-APPEARING AND FULLY SPIRITUALLY GLORIFIED JESUS), the “chosen people” of God will then became ALL souls that had/have faith AND obedience in Jesus Christ Almighty (rather Hebrew or Gentile!) as the following passage illustrates:

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

While it’s true to say that the Hebrews were the “firstborn” or original “first-fruits” of God, it’s NEVER ok to say that “today’s Jews” don’t need Jesus Christ to be “Saved”! For ALL souls (INCLUDING “Jewish ones”) NEED Jesus Christ to be saved! ALL!

For like I stated, outside of Jesus Christ, there IS no Salvation! The VEIL to the Jewish temple was BROKEN by Jesus during his crucifixion! Meaning, the OLD COVENANT (the “Jewish Temple”) no longer applied, ONLY the NEW COVENANT (Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection & consequent ascension back up to heaven) applied/applies! For ONLY the blood of Jesus on the cross gave a way for all present-at-the-time-of-Jesus and future mankind a way to be “eternally redeemed in God’s site!”

Many Christians out there today REFUSE to tell Jews about Jesus, thinking that the Jews are already saved by “the Torah”. But those Christians are DECEIVED and sadly DELUDING THEMSELVES! For remember that Satan’s goal is to KILL, STEAL & DESTROY! The Hebrews (back in ancient biblical times) were the Lord’s chosen people! Satan’s been trying to DESTROY THEM and/or their way of life ever since (Haman, Pharaoh, Nero, Nimrod, Hitler, antisemitism in & of itself (*especially* among many of today’s “Christians”), Palestinian Authority, etc.)

In fact, during the time of Constantine, “anti-Jewish sentiment” was at an all time high. Pro-Jesus Jews wanted nothing to do with the “Orthodox Jews” since they considered them responsible for the “execution/crucifixion” of Jesus. Romans (for the most part) ALSO wanted nothing to do with the Orthodox Jews OR “Pro-Jesus Jews” since they considered their way of life to be “foreign” and “too restrictive”.

And so just like many “politicians” do today, Constantine knew he must fully maintain these “sentiments” by law in order to maintain complete and utter control over the entire Roman Empire populace. So what better way for him to do that, than to create a religion that “did away with biblical precepts” and that had “equal rights for ALL”? Sound familiar?

When Constantine (with the help of “Catholic bishops”) CHANGED the Sabbath day from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday Sabbath to Sun-day (venerable worship day of the Sun), he not only turned “Christianity” into a LIE but he ALSO proved which god he worshiped (and it was NOT the God of the bible!!!!!!!)

Sadly, one of the most devastating IMPACTS this had was on the “Jewish people” THEMSELVES (as a whole)! Instead of being spiritually seen “as one” with the “believing” Gentiles (meaning, those Gentiles that believed in AND obeyed Yeshua/Jesus Christ) like they SHOULD’VE BEEN, they were then “set apart” for what would then become their own spiritual demise! Because at THAT point in time, you then had many “Orthodox Jews” who thought that NO Jews need Jesus in order to be saved” and unfortunately, this viewpoint spread like CANCER to the non-Jewish world as well!

BEFORE Yeshua (the BIBLICAL Jesus) physically arrived on the Earth, ONLY the Hebrews were “God’s chosen people”. But DURING and AFTER the time that Yeshua (the BIBLICAL Jesus) physically arrived on Earth, ANY person (rather Hebrew or not) received the right to become “a child of God”/PART of “God’s chosen people”. Because whoever DENIES Yeshua is THE Messiah (rather Jewish or not) is essentially calling God (the same one that saved Daniel in the Lions Den, brought the Hebrews out of Egypt, appeared to Moses in a burning bush and parted the Red Sea, etc.) a LIAR! Please remember that Yeshua is the same yesterday, today and evermore! He hails from EVERLASTING! 

Jerusalem (both Earthly Jerusalem AND Heavenly Jerusalem) is God’s foothold. The bible says so. In fact, even after all this time, the physical city of Jerusalem (miraculously) still stands! However, many “Arabs” (modern-day physical and/or spiritual descendants of Ishmael) now live in Jerusalem, too! To ME, that’s very prophetic…..

In my opinion, that means that God is reigning “judgement” upon “Earthly Jerusalem” for the following two reasons: A) for becoming so “worldly” and “politically correct” and B) for the Jews having turned their back on their one and only true Messiah (which is Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty)…..

The fact that “Earthly Jerusalem” now has many Israel-hating “foreigners” living among them (and has had so for SEVERAL years now) *and* that it’s also now a “political hotbed” for the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD (in addition to all the “pro-sodomite/LGBT celebrations” in Tel Aviv/etc……….SPEAKS VOLUMES! (That’s bible prophecy right there in the making, folks!) 

Also, there’s NO more need for an “Earthly Temple” anymore, as THE VEIL TO THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN AT THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS! Jesus Christ himself even says in John 5:46 “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.”  

And the bible also says Jesus/Almighty God will create a NEW heavens and a NEW EARTH! In fact, the city that Almighty God will build and bring down from heaven will be called “NEW JERUSALEM”. Why is that, do you think? Because clearly, if God’s foothold on the city of Jerusalem were only physical, there would be no need for him to build a “NEW JERUSALEM”, now, would there? That’s how we know that Almighty God’s hold on Earthly Jerusalem is both physical AND spiritual……

However, ironically enough, even WITH the foreign enemy living among them, Israel is STILL prosperous! That to ME would suggest that Jesus still loves the Jews and desperately wants them to come back to Him before it’s too late and their fate is sealed for all eternity! 

Our commission in these last days is to NOT ONLY bring the gospel to non-believers and those of other religions (in general) but to SPECIFICALLY bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Jews themselves! Because remember that there is NO SALVATION outside of Jesus Christ! NONE! Over 330+ Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament were FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in the New Testament, biblically PROVING that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah!

Also: think about all the Jews out there today that do horrible, abominable things, like own porno companies or abortion clinics or movie studios, etc for instance! Or Jews that were born Jews but deny the faith of Jesus? Are they all now “Saved” JUST BECAUSE they were “born Jewish”? HA! Or perhaps you have a Jew that DOES follow the Torah to the letter (and while I personally commend that Jew/those Jews for doing so – especially in today’s world where things have become so evil), that STILL won’t “Save Them” from God’s Eternal Wrath since THE VEIL OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN at the crucifixion of Jesus!

“He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me” – Luke 10:16 [Those that hate Yeshua/Jesus HATE God Almighty since God Almighty is the one that SENT Yeshua/Jesus to Earth to be born of a virgin birth!

“Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust” – John 5:45 [Moses will directly or co-directly accuse Jews who rejected Jesus to Almighty God, since THE VEIL TO THE JEWISH TEMPLE WAS BROKEN AT THE PRECISE MOMENT OF JESUS’S DEATH ON THE CROSS!

“I and my Father are one” – John 10:30 [Yeshua/Jesus IS the Messiah!!!!!! He is God Almighty in the flesh! He and the Heavenly Father/God Almighty ARE ONE!

Not to mention that most of the Jewish genealogical records were carried away and BURNED! Why? Because it was God’s sign to mankind that the genealogical records NO LONGER APPLIED, since THE MESSIAH (Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty) HAD ALREADY ARRIVED ON EARTH! 

[However, Yeshua/Jesus’s genealogy has been preserved to a T! Why is that, do you think? Answer: His genealogy is the ONLY spiritual/physical genealogy that MATTERS!]   

So, people: IF you see, know or hear of a Jewish person, PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST & SALVATION TO THEM! The bible says that during the End Times, 144,000 Jews will be sealed in the name of God! Translation? DURING these here End Times, many Jews will come to know and realize that Jesus Christ WAS their Messiah and is the ONLY way to Salvation! In fact, many Jews today are ALREADY starting to wake up to this fact! They are known today as “Messianic Jews”.

And for those “Christians” who defied Constantine by KEEPING the biblically-mandated “Jewish precepts” of the gospel such as the BIBLICAL FEASTS and the biblically-mandated 7th day Sabbath? They became known as “Messianic Jews” or “the Lord’s people”. So no, not ALL Jews refused to recognize Jesus as their Messiah. Some were wise enough back then to realize Jesus was the Messiah. But still. Many more Jews will wisen up TODAY and realize that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah!

But folks, be forewarned: amidst world chaous, a “one-world-government-leader” will SOON emerge. He will appear to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. He might even possibly call himself “Jesus” or “Messiah”. But he will NOT be the “Jesus Christ of the bible”. He will be an IMPOSTER! He is the BIBLICAL ANTICHRIST! He will pretend to come in the name of peace and FOOL MANY! And he will eventually require ALL flesh (both young and old, rich and poor, free and bond) to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead in order to be able to buy or sell. But Almighty God warns that WHOEVER takes this “mark” will end up in the eternal LAKE OF FIRE:

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

“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” – Revelation 20:15

Sadly, many “Jews” (and non-Jews, alike) will see the soon-coming one-world-government-leader (the Antichrist) AS their “Messiah” and will GLADLY take his “mark” to buy and sell, before later realizing that NOT ONLY is he not THE BIBLICAL MESSIAH but is in fact, no “Messiah” at all but came from the PITS OF HELL! However, by then, it’ll be too late for them, for ONCE they take “the mark”, their fate is SEALED for ALL ETERNITY!

In fact, Messiah Jesus warned us in Matthew 7: 13-14 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”. 

Translation? VERY FEW will make it into the gates of “heavenly Jerusalem”, someday. VERY. FEW. Yet, MANY billions of people will end up in the LAKE OF FIRE, someday. Why? Because Almighty God sent them there? Answer: No. Because these people will have ended up sending THEMSELVES there…..by REJECTING Jesus Christ as the one and only true Messiah, by ALLOWING themselves to be deceived by the one world government leader, and by ALLOWING themselves to get “THE MARK” (in order to buy or sell), the mark that Almighty God warned them in the bible NOT to get!

Therefore, in conclusion, ALL souls (INCLUDING Jewish ones) need Jesus Christ in order to be “Saved”! For apart from Jesus Christ, there IS no Eternal Salvation!

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12

And for those of you Jewish people or skeptics that have any doubt about Jesus being the one and ONLY true Messiah, PLEASE PLEASE check out my page entitled “Long List of 333+ Messianic Prophecies from Old Testament FULFILLED by Jesus Christ in New Testament”. 

Thanks and have a wonderful evening! 😉 

“I pray that all Jewish AND non-Jewish souls that read this become saved in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ. May He speak to you in your dreams, may He give you visions of Him and HIS words in the bible, may He take the spiritual blinders off your eyes and SET YOU FREE from the demonic LIES of this world and may He also grant your soul a refreshening that only He himself can provide! May He bless & keep you for all eternity! Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As Soon As One Starts To “Question” God/The Bible, The Devil Has Won!

The bible says that in the Last Days, there would be “scoffers” and many of those who “question its authority/authenticity”. Some of the most often-heard quotes are:

  • “Does the bible REALLY say that homosexuality/homosexual living is a sin?”
  • “Does the bible REALLY say that full-water immersion baptism is required?”
  • “Does the bible REALLY say that ALL people who aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life go Hell/Lake of Fire/Eternal Destruction?”
  • “Does the bible HONESTLY condemn pre-marital sex as sin?”
  • “Do I I REALLY have to love my neighbor as myself?”
  • “Is it TRULY necessary to forgive those who have hurt me?”
  • “Are celebrating the Lord’s BIBLICAL holidays and BIBLICAL 7th-Day Sabbath TRULY REQUIRED by the Lord?”
  • “Is celebrating today’s “Paganized Christian” holidays REALLY an “abomination” unto the Lord?”

But see, that’s how the Devil operates! He tries to get us to DOUBT the Lord’s “authority” and the Lord’s “wrath” towards ALL things considered as sin/unrighteousness.

Many in today’s “culture” will say things like, “Yeah well, WHO is to say what’s considered righteous or not? WHO gets to be the judge?” But both of those questions have ALREADY been answered in the bible, quite honestly! The Lord Jesus himself created and made all things, HE determines what’s righteous or not, and HE and HE alone, is “the righteous judge” of ALL of mankind!

Just think for a moment. If you were the creator of a distinct piece of “art”, for example, you’d OWN that “art”, you’d have all the “bragging rights” of that “art”, and you and you alone (as the owner and creator of “said art”), would be able to be the “righteous judge” of that “art” and would get to decide what was good or bad about it and FOR it, right? So it is with Almighty God!

But therein lies the problem: AS SOON AS we start to “question the authority” of either the bible AND/OR Yeshua/Jesus Christ, we’re ALREADY being deceived by the Devil, in that very moment of “questioning!” Because remember that Satan’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy! And his NUMBER ONE GOAL is to UNDERMINE THE AUTHORITY OF GOD/YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST AND THE BIBLE!

Basically, Satan the Devil doesn’t really care in WHAT way/ways he does that, just so long AS he does it! When a child of God believes every word of the bible, Satan gets really, really angry and frustrated and so, has to try to find subtle ways to try to GET that child of God to “question the bible”, “question Jesus” and more or less to “question everything”.

And one of his MOST POPULAR techniques for doing this is to focus on things such as THESE:

  • “So……only the RIGHTEOUS are gonna be saved while the unrighteous will be condemned and burned for eternity…….hhhmm……sounds “loving”……..how “loving” of the Most High to burn certain people alive for eternity……Is that TRULY loving? Would a true, LOVING God send people to Hell? Hhhmm……guess the Lord of the bible isn’t so loving afterall, is he?”
  • “You say or claim that Jesus is a LOVING God…….Okay then, why did he make you go through all of that hell in your life, then? Perhaps he’s forgotten about you down here or doesn’t like you so much, afterall!”
  • “Look at all the evil/unrighteous things you’ve done in your life! There’s NO WAY Jesus could ever forgive you for that!”
  • “Oh, sure! Go ahead and read your bible and pray! The Lord is ANGRY with you, beyond compare and nothing you say or do will change that!”
  • “The Lord’s gonna condemn you someday, you can COUNT on it!”
  • “Oh, sure! Go ahead and preach the gospel of Salvation to people or try to! Nobody’s gonna listen to you, anyways!”
  • “Is the Lord Jesus REALLY gonna send good-natured Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, non-believers and Jews to hell? Certainly he’ll judge them by their good-natured “hearts” and not their “religions”, right?”
  • “The Lord’s NOT REALLY gonna send people to hell……it’s just a scare-tactic, is all!”

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? But then again, it’s not just the children of God that he tries to work against, it’s EVERYONE! Rather people realize this fact or not! For NOT ONLY does Satan fight against people who WON’T submit to him in any way (think biblical-roots Christians/Messianic Jews, for example) but also against those that DO (Muslims, Catholics, Mormons, Satanists, Paganized Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.) How? He tries to undermine the Word of God/image of God to EVERYONE (Christian and non-Christian ALIKE!)

One of the most popular misconceptions floating around out there in modern-day “Christiandom” is that “Satan will never fight against someone who’s already his!” (spiritually speaking) and that’s a LIE! I’m gonna tell you why…….look at all the Satanic and/or Luciferian movie stars who get hooked on drugs and die young/etc.! You think Satan and his demons weren’t actively spiritually/mentally fighting against that person ALL ALONG FROM THE GET-GO, behind the scenes? THINK AGAIN, FOLKS!

Because truth be told, Satan fights JUST AS MUCH against Satanists/Wiccans/Pagans as he does any OTHER human group, including Christians! The brutal reality is that ALL OF HUMANITY is being battled against by Satan! There’s not ONE single human sole on this ENTIRE PLANET that’s not somehow being spiritually battled against by Satan, rather people realize that or not!

In fact, think back to the time you were a little kid and you felt “tempted” to lie or steal candy from the candy store, etc.? Even if you didn’t grow up in a “Christian home”…….or perhaps a time in the modern age when you ever felt “tempted” (even “minorly tempted” – even if you only felt “tempted” JUST ONCE) to cheat on your significant other….. You think Satan and his demons DIDN’T have something to do with that? OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE!

The brutal reality is that SATAN HATES MANKIND! Not just “SOME” of mankind, mind you, but ALL of mankind! Why? Because humans are made in the image of Almighty God! And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Satan HATES God’s image! And anything having to DO with “God’s image” (unborn babies in the womb and/or one man/one woman marriage, in which NATURAL PROCREATION occurs!)

Which brings to my mind the gay/transgender movement/argument. Transgenders will oftentimes say, “I feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body” or “I feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body”, etc. But tell me! Since when do “FEELINGS” dictate natural God-given BIOLOGY? If a person “felt” like a horse, should we allow them surgery to “become a horse?”

Certainly you will see the total ridiculous in the “transgender argument”. Plus you will ALSO see that believing one is something that goes AGAINST one’s natural God-given biology is more like a MENTAL ILLNESS. And surely, digging a little deeper, you will also start to see that ALL mental illnesses are DEMONICALLY INDUCED! Now, there’s a total difference between DEMONIC POSSESSION and DEMONIC OPPRESSION!

[DEMONIC POSSESSION is where a person is COMPLETELY taken over by demons and forced to do their will, while DEMONIC OPPRESSION is where a person is only PARTIALLY taken over by demonic spirits (in their minds) and aren’t yet FULLY POSSESSED]. Therefore, when a demonically oppressed “transgender” person gets sex-change surgery, they THEN become demonically possessed BY the demon spirits that were originally “spiritually oppressing them” TO BEGIN WITH! Make sense?

Satan UTILIZES the gay/transgender argument to further his agenda of “undermining the Word of God”. And who or what is the Word of God? I’m glad you asked! The Word of God is JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF! And the bible is the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD! Just like we humans are made in the IMAGE OF GOD! That’s not to say that WE are gods! That’s ONLY to say that we were made in God’s image! And Satan hates the image of God SO MUCH, that he’s willing to do anything to try to destroy it! And the gay/transgender movement is precisely one of the main ways he does that!

People think the gay/transgender movement is all about “gay/trans rights”. But what it REALLY is, at its VERY CORE, is a movement to UNDERMINE THE WORD OF GOD **AND** TO DESTROY THE IMAGE OF GOD! [The image of God being a biologically-born man and a biologically-born woman in a TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE and any children they NATURALLY produce!]

That’s why Satan loves gay marriage and “gay adoption” so much! BECAUSE IT UNDERMINES THE IMAGE OF GOD! (Hint: It’s got absolutely NOTHING to do with “rights”…….the only “rights” the “movement” is trying to procure is “THE RIGHT TO SIN” and the “RIGHT TO STAMP OUT THE BIBLE/CHRISTIAN WITNESSING ON THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY”. That’s ALL it really is, folks! WAKE UP!)

The only way that Satan can get a person (or in some cases, an entire “church”) to defy the IMAGE of God, is to UNDERMINE the WORD OF GOD! And the only way Satan can undermine the Word of God (Yeshua/Jesus Christ) is to destroy the Image of God! Do you see now how those two things work hand in hand together, in Satan’s master scheme of things?

Here’s the several ways Satan utilized to try to permanently destroy the Word of God AND the Image of God:

  1. The Gay/Transgender Movement
  2. World Religions
  3. Global Government (U.N., etc.)
  4. Media & Entertainment Industry
  5. “Newer bible translations” (NIV, ESV, etc.)
  6. Church denominations and SECTS (certainly they can’t ALL be right, correct?)
  7. The Roman Catholic Church
  8. Atheism/Satanism/Wicca/New Age Movement
  9. Etc.

But I ask you and leave you with THIS: The last time you felt yourself “questioning something” from the bible (as in, questioning the AUTHORITY of the bible on a certain subject), what was it that led you to question it? Was it someone’s video on Youtube? A movie? A pastor? A friend/family member/coworker? A book or news article?

What was it SPECIFICALLY that led you to start “questioning the bible’s authority on something?” Because any thing or person that leads you to “question the authority” on anything in the bible (and I do mean ANYTHING – Old OR New Testament) is NOT OF GOD! So remember that.

The next time you find yourself “questioning the bible” and its authority on something, ask yourself if that “questioning” is biblical. And if it’s not, please pray the following prayer:

“Almighty Yeshua/Jesus, please reveal to me specifically what it was that led me to question your word in the bible. And once you reveal that thing/person to me, please help me to remain strong and true to your word in the bible. Please protect me from questioning your word, ever, ever again. Amen”. 

“Christmas” & “Easter”: Satan’s War For Souls

For years and years and years, most families here in America have decorated Christmas trees, put up holly and mistletoe, placed “Nativity scenes” on their front lawns, hung “stockings” on the chimney, etc.

But NOT ONCE have most people EVER stopped to wonder………“Did Jesus and his 12 disciples ever decorate a Christmas tree?”, “Did Jesus and his disciples ever hang stockings in their home or proudly display holly branches?”, “Did Jesus and his disciples ever display worship Easter bunnies and paint eggs?”, “Did Jesus and his followers in biblical times ever proudly display plastic idols of Santa Claus, reindeer and snowmen?”

In other words, many people today here in America celebrate “Christmas” and “Easter” but they’re not really sure WHY they celebrate the specific TRADITIONS that go along with each “holiday” or WHERE THOSE TRADITIONS CAME FROM……They’re not really sure WHY they cut down a tree out of the forest, drag it into their home, “decorate it” with gold, tinsel, bulbs, etc. Just like they’re not really sure WHY they display stuffed bunny rabbits and paint eggs…….

Many people say that Christmas is about the birth of Christ. However, NOT ONE single passage in the bible will confirm this! YES, angels gladly celebrated the birth of Christ WHEN it happened (and rightfully so!)

But NOWHERE in the bible are WE “Christians” commended to do so (ESPECIALLY in a fashion which would state: “Go out into the forest, cut down a tree, decorate it like crazy, associate it with the birth of Christ”. You will not find ONE single bible passage that tells us to celebrate “Christmas”.

However, there ARE specific bible passages which command us to commemorate Jesus’s DEATH on the cross, RESURRECTION and consequent ASCENSION up to heaven 40 days later! This is known as “The Lord’s Supper”. And unlike what you see in churches today, it’s NOT supposed to be a small sip of wine and a wafer cracker, it’s supposed to be a full, elaborate MEAL! Back in biblical times, these were known as “Love Feasts”.

But Constantine, the Roman Emperor (Pontifex Maximus), had OTHER plans. He wanted to rule over the Pagans AND the Jews of his time. And the ONLY way he could do that was to MERGE a religion that blended BOTH elements, but that mostly did away with the “Jewish” parts of it. PLUS HE HAD THE HELP OF “CATHOLIC BISHOPS” TO DO IT……Thus, the birth of “Romanized/Pagan Christianity”.  

Truth be told, the REAL WAR on Jesus Christ/Christ began around 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea. That is when the TRUE, BIBLICALLY-MANDATED 7TH DAY SABBATH, was CHANGED from Saturday to SUN-DAY, venerable worship day of the SUN!

And then, at the 365A.D. Council of Laodicea, things ONLY got worse! That is when it was FORBIDDEN to rest on the TRUE Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) and when “Christians” and “Jews” were FORCED BY LAW to WORK on the Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, venerable worship day of the Sun (practices CLEARLY forbidden by the bible!)

But no, it doesn’t even stop THERE! It gets EVEN worse! It was also FORBIDDEN for Christians and Jews living in the Roman Empire at that time to eat UNLEAVENED BREAD/fast/pray (a biblical command) and to celebrate the TRUE “Holy Days” of the Lord, including the following:

  • Passover

  • Feast of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast of Tabernacles

  • Day of Atonement

  • Feast of Trumpets

So quite honestly, the time between 325A.D. and 365A.D. is when the TRUE WAR on “Christ” (atleast in the modern day time) began! So don’t be fooled! The Roman Catholic Church is one of THE MOST evilest (& powerful) organizations in history!

It pretty much turned all of Jewish-roots Christianity/Messianic Judaism into a LIE! It took the Jewish religion and turned it INTO *ANCIENT BABYLONIAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED*! Don’t believe me? DO THE RESEARCH AND SEE FOR YOURSELVES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Sadly, today’s “Easter” is modeled after “ISHTAR”, the ancient Persian goddess of fertility and is also a TOTAL MOCKERY of the Lord Jesus’s Resurrection/etc. [Which the Jews/Messianic Christians celebrate as the BIBLICAL FEAST called PASSOVER].

So how does “Easter” MOCK JESUS? Simple….By REPLACING JESUS with the “Easter rabbit” (an ancient Pagan symbol of SEX/FERTILITY and in association with ISHTAR, the Persian goddess of fertility!) Back in ancient Pagan times, the Pagan would PAINT EGGS in a “sexual fertility festival” dedicated to ISHTAR, the Persian goddess of fertility! Just like they would also catch and eat a “wild pig” around what we now know as “Christmas time”. Hence the painted eggs and “eating ham” TRADITIONS…….

Ask most people WHY they celebrate Christmas or Easter. “Tradition”, they say. But do “mens’ traditions” line up with the bible? NO! 

So you got to ask yourself: Will I continue to celebrate in Paganized “Christian traditions” OR will I start to forsake ALL things Pagan (Christmas, Easter, etc.) and start to celebrate the TRUE Jewish-Christian traditions of the BIBLE?”

Go ahead. Read through the bible, front to back. You will NEVER, EVER read about one of the Lord’s peoples celebrating Christmas, Easter, etc. (The one word Easter in the KJV is simply meaning to illustrate/indicate the time that the PAGANS worshiped Easter……NOT CHRISTIANS! Wake up, people!) 

However, you WILL read about Jesus and his disciples celebrating the following:

  • Passover

  • Feast of Unleavened Bread

  • Feast of Firstfruits

  • Pentecost

  • Feast of Tabernacles

  • Day of Atonement

  • Feast of Trumpets

Not to mention there’s even been some evidence pointed out by modern day bible scholars that Jesus and his disciples likely even celebrated in the 2 “Minor Feasts” of the Jewish people:

  • Purim

  • Festival of Lights/Chanukuah

But do you know what Christmas TRULY represents? The “Wreath” is a Pagan image meant to represent “jealousy” or “being green with envy”, while the “decorated Christmas tree” is supposed to represent Nimrod’s “erect member”. 

And Christmas is based on the ancient Roman SEX FEST called “Saturnalia”. And guess what happened at the END of this week-long “sex fest”? That’s right. An innocent man or woman was MURDERED! 

So in actuality, ALL “Paganized Christan holidays” are NOT only all based on “ancient Pagan SEX FESTS” (do the full research if you don’t believe me) but they all also ANGER CHRIST and are AGAINST CHRIST!

Tell me……what do Santa Claus, reindeer, and the Easter bunny have to do with Christ? Anything? Anything at all? Is there even ONE bible passage which mentions reindeer, Santa Claus or the Easter bunny? Even just one? Didn’t think so. 

When one KNOWINGLY celebrates “Christmas”, knowing the full hellish, PAGAN sex fest history behind it, they’re on the path to damning their souls for eternity! I’m sorry but it’s true! (And please believe me when I say that goes just AS much for me, as it does for anyone else!) 

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7:13-14Enter 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, the path to destruction is WIDE and MANY go in by it. And the path to LIFE [which is Jesus Christ himself] is NARROW and there are FEW who find it. 

So what does that mean in translation (as far as the “Paganized holidays” go)? It means that many, many people (in retrospect) will damn their souls for eternity by blindly following the traditions of “men/mankind” (Christmas, Easter, Sun-day Sabbath, etc.) rather than the traditions of God Almighty (Passover, Tabernacles, 7th Day Biblical Sabbath, etc.)

In fact, here’s a recent news story that just breaks my heart. For this guy just seems to have NO IDEA of the hellishness of “Christmas/Christ-Mass” and what it TRULY REPRESENTS! ;(

{NOTE: We should all pray for this man to come to a TRULY saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and Jesus’s TRUE gospel and not the false, Satanic “gospel” that the Catholic Church “birthed”out of Paganism!}

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again and I’ll KEEP ON SAYING it, over and over again on this blog (as MANY times as it TAKES), in order to OPEN UP PEOPLE’S EYES TO THE TOTAL HELLISHNESS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, ITS FALSE/SATANIC DOCTRINES AND ALL OF ITS “HELLISH DAUGHTERS” (THE PROTESTANT CHURCHES WHO’VE FOLLOWED SUIT AND CELEBRATE THE SAME/EXACT FALSE/PAGANIZED SATANIC “HOLIDAYS” THAT THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH DOES! 

And true, I might tick off some “Catholics” or “Tradition-Clinging Protestants” along the way while doing so, but ya know what? So be it! I’d rather have them ticked off and KNOW the truth about these things, rather than them being all happy go lucky in “blind traditions of men/mankind” and NOT know the truth about these things! They can get mad at me all they want to, all day long, 24/7/365 and it’s STILL not gonna change what the Word of God says in the bible! For if one is TRULY seeking God/Jesus Christ and what Jesus’s gospel REALLY truly is, that person’s going to:

A). Read the King James Bible, front to back, so they first of all KNOW what’s in there or not, before jumping to conclusions or making assumptions on things!

B). Be like unto a Berean Christian who will search the scriptures daily, to find out rather or not these things (that I denounce from the Roman Catholic Church/etc.) are so!

C). Do the proper research on the HISTORY of “Paganized Christianity” and the Roman Catholic Church, rather than just blindly taking my word and/or someone else’s word for it! (Each person out there needs to do the research and see for themselves!) 

D). Forsake ALL things Pagan and start to examine the TRUE Jewish-roots Christianity that Jesus is calling each and EVERY person in these “Last Days” to do! 

It doesn’t even matter at this point if you’re Protestant OR Catholic………IF you go to a modern-day “church” denomination (or even non-denominational church) that meets on a SUNDAY and that celebrates in Christmas/Easter/etc., YOU’VE BEEN LIED TO! Many pastors and priests out there know THE TRUTH about these things but they’re too afraid to speak about it to their congregation(s) because of their big “tax breaks” they get from the government/etc…..

They’re basically being “bought off” by the government to teach their congregations whatever “watered-down gospel” that the government (as a whole) wants them to teach. Just LOOK at the number of churches today that openly support homo/trans sexuality, for example! (The bible calls it AN ABOMINATION!) That’s just ONE example. There’s also churches that support divorce, ABORTION, anti-Israel campaigns, etc. 

For more information, I’ll leave you with a great resource:

Basically, I don’t care, I’ll write a THOUSAND posts on this topic if I have to, in order to get it through people’s minds: I’ve said it once and I’ll say it 10,000 times or more AGAIN……..

TODAY’S *CHRISTIANITY* IS NOTHING BUT A FALSE, PAGANIZED RELIGION THAT WILL TAKE YOU STRAIGHT TO THE FLAMES OF HELL/LAKE OF FIRE (if you don’t soon repent and LEAVE the modern-day “church system” and “false/Pagan church doctrines”, that is!) AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, IN AND OF ITSELF, IS ONE OF **THE MOST**, EVILEST ORGANIZATIONS **IN HISTORY**!
