Donald J. Trump: America’s Last Stand

Right after 9-11, many, many Americans started filling churches, in search of God or A god……desperate for answers. But that “searching for God” phase seemed to be short-lived. Just 2 and 1/2 years later, America decided to go to war…….with IRAQ……and then, all heck seemed to break loose. Americans and namely, American CHRISTIANS were just seeming to become, over time……COMPLACENT. Many just “gave up”. And it SHOWED.

And sometime between then and around the year 2005 or so, the mindset of “politically correct” was born. I think it began with a woman on an American TV talk show that was AGAINST the Iraq war. And then it all sort’ve snowballed from there. Because it wasn’t long before liberals (and many Americans, in general) started asking the questions: “Was it RIGHT for us to go to war with Iraq? What about the “innocent” Muslim groups who have NOT yet participated in Jihad?”, etc. Thus, politically correct (aka PC culture) was born!

Democrats that were unhappy with Bush (as a whole) started developing these immoral ideas. And over time, those immoral ideas became more and more immoral. And by the time President Obama took the stage, it seemed like it was over for America. It seemed like America was done. And THEN, when Obama got re-elected, many Christian conservatives were wondering if he was the Anti-Christ. On the flipside, Democrats everywhere (as a whole) were just ELATED that they once again had control of the White House. It became an Anything Goes type of morality.

Even during this middle of his 8-year term, Obama himself seemed to be embracing this “Anything Goes” type of morality. The LGBT started gaining more “rights” than EVER BEFORE. The Supreme Court LEGALIZED gay marriage all across the land. Not to mention they even PROJECTED the image of KALI on top the Empire State Building, and the “gay rainbow colors” on the White House! 

Many Americans (namely, Christian conservative Americans) just saw this country as DONE. They didn’t really have any hope. All hope to them was VANQUISHED! Many of them (early, early on in the primaries) didn’t even really CARE who got to be president in 2016, as they didn’t really think it would make much of a difference at THIS rate, since the LGBT mafia had already gotten its ways in the schools, in the media, in “mainstream American culture”, etc. They kind’ve just gave up on America and on their Christian, moral values.

But THEN………A GREAT SHIFT HAPPENED….Americans (as a whole) started realizing that American national security had been put at risk, and that things in the political world aren’t always what they seem. Americans realized that they had been LIED TO and PLAYED. They realized JUST HOW MUCH CORRUPTION there is in our government.

[But in fact, even many non-conservative Americans know and realize that our nation is in trouble. Our unemployment rate is at an all-time high, “Obamacare” premiums are SKYROCKETING in cost, our national debt is unsustainable…….not to mention we have a FLOOD of immigrants coming into our country (some of them even “terrorists” who wish to do HARM to this country!]

It’s quite a slippery slope once you LEGALIZE something that the Lord considers SIN. When the 1973 Roe V. Wade decision came on, things were bad. But the June 26, 2015 decision to legalize gay marriage in ALL 50 U.S. States really did us in, as a nation (as far as God’s Wrath is concerned!) Ever since the 1973 Roe V. Wade, Jesus Christ kept giving this nation time and time and time and time to repent. But we (as a nation) did NOT repent. In fact, we just got WORSE (as far as the legalization of SIN practices go!) And that’s what’s scary].

And while many LIBERALS are upset over the Trump win (with many “college students” even protesting the results of the election, nation-wide), Trump (as of right now) is going to be our 45th president. But just what does that mean, PROPHETICALLY? Many Christians and Conservatives are putting all their hope INTO Trump, INSTEAD of in Jesus Christ Almighty. In fact, they’re viewing Trump as some sort of “Messiah-like figure”, with some even proclaiming that he’s the “Lord’s Anointed” and/or a “Modern-Day King Cyrus”. 

But the point I want to make is THIS: First off, NOBODY knows the day or the hour of the Rapture OR PRECISELY **WHEN** the Lord Jesus Christ’s return to Earth, NOT EVEN the angels in heaven, but the Heavenly Father, ONLY! In fact, if Trump DOES get to be president and DOES deliver on some of his campaign promises and America DOES “prosper” for a season, I think there’s likely a VERY good possibility that the Rapture of the Church may occur THEN……when people are caught HIGHLY OFF-GUARD and are LEAST expecting Him!

In other words, the Lord Jesus’s Rapture will catch them LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT! And Jesus is NOT returning for “wayward Christians” who AREN’T keeping watch, folks! He’s returning for “his” ELECT……he’s returning for those that are/were keeping watch the whole time, and living a life that was biblically PLEASING to Him!

In fact, Luke 21:28 says: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” while Matthew 24: 42-46 says: Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing”.

So……what “things” is Luke 21:28 talking about? Luke 21: 8-28 just barely scratches the surface of what these things are while 2 Timothy 4: 3-4 says: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” while 2 Timothy 3: 1-5 says:

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

And furthermore, rather or not Donald J. Trump is (or isn’t) a “Modern-Day King Cyrus” is BEYOND THE POINT! Because remember that our HOPE is NOT to be in any ONE human being but ONLY in Jesus Christ Almighty, for he IS our Salvation and he IS our Hope! Because at ALL times and in ALL ways, we’re supposed to be CONSTANTLY (every hour of every day) about the Heavenly Father’s business! (Even in our dreams! For remember that according to Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”)

What does that MEAN, some may wonder? It means that we’re to be keeping our focus SOLELY on Jesus Christ Almighty and the signs of the times…….AND that we’re supposed to be still trying to win AS MANY souls to Jesus Christ as humanly possible, WHILE THERE’S STILL TIME!

A person’s voting party is BESIDES the point. The POINT is rather or not YOUR HEART is right with Jesus Christ Almighty! Although I WILL say in retrospect that those who support Hilary/abortion AND call themselves “Christian” have got some SERIOUS soul-searching to do. Enough said. However……as far as the dynamics of Trump go, there’s alot more here than meets the eye. Which is why I decided to write this post.

While it’s true that Donald J. Trump IS a highly successful businessman/entrepreneur who would likely be good for jobs/the American economy, there’s STILL many unanswered questions, here:

1). Will Trump actually do what he says he will do?

2). Has Trump ever repented to Jesus Christ of his sins?

3). Will Trump be assassinated before he even becomes president?

4). IS he a “Modern-Day King Cyrus” or “Modern-Day King Nebuchadnezzar” (an “arrogant king” who later turned to Almighty God in the Old Testament) as many Christians claim? If not, then WHO is he, prophetically speaking?

5). AS MUCH as I absolutely HATE having to consider this one, COULD it be possible that Donald J. Trump is the Anti-Christ talked about in Revelation?

He won’t be sworn in until January 20, 2017 and alot could happen by then. Ya never know. Many of the unhappy Leftists want the electoral college electors to DEFY their state’s votes and vote for Hilary Clinton instead, on December 19th, 2016 of this year! And while it’s highly unlikely the electors’ll do so, the Leftists are still holding out hope for such.

[In fact, many on the Left (as a whole) are now acting like such poor, poor “coddled whiners”…….I think that’s sad. Democrats (as a whole) have lost their focus on what “patriotism” is all about…..Which makes me wish that Democrats (as a whole) would start to have some “patriotic common sense” and support our President Elect, like the rest of America. Not to say that the Republican party is “perfect”, ofcourse. It has its flaws, just like any political party would.

HOWEVER……when it comes to BIBLICAL VALUES (Pro-Life/Anti-Abortion, etc.) and AMERICAN PATRIOTIC VALUES, the Republican party is more far more “seemingly” aligned with biblical values (as a whole) AND American patriotic values (as a whole) than the Democratic party is

Because remember: Liberalism leads to Socialism and Socialism leads to COMMUNISM and communism leads to………VENEZUELA! And Venezuela is LIVING, VISUAL PROOF THAT COMMUNISM ISN’T SO GREAT, AFTERALL! They practically have no toilet paper or medicine there, folks! Their refrigerators and supermarket shelves are practically EMPTY! A loaf of bread now costs close to the equivalent of U.S. $300?

{Granted, many of them can still hop over to Colombia to “occasionally” buy food, toilet paper, medicine, etc. but there are STILL long lines & “food riots” they have to endure, not to mention there’s never any “guarantee” that the supplies won’t run out before they even get there. Plus the supplies are likely “rationed”, as it is. Sounds like quite a “paradise”, doesn’t it?}

And just for measure, if the ENTIRE American country ever went the way of Venezuela, where would WE hop over to to get OUR food/medicine/toilet paper? We’d either have to fly, hop on a ship, or wait for IMPORTS (if any) to come in. And supplies would be “limited” and “rationed off”, no doubt. Not much of a political, economic or social “paradise”, huh?

Heck, even many Venezuelans THEMSELVES would probably give ANYTHING to live under anything BUT communism. Many of them even want to escape here to the U.S.! Why? Because they know if they can get in here to the U.S., that they’d have it pretty good here, compared to how they have things back at home! And if most liberals and communist loving Democrats (as a whole) would take the time to talk to Venezuelans IN PERSON, I’m sure the Venezuelans would tell them how truly TERRIBLE and AWFUL communism is!!!!! 

In fact, I even wonder what would happen if some of the most liberal of liberals here were forced to live in Venezuela for a month. I wonder if they’d think communism was still so great, then. They think socialism/communism/liberalism “sounds good”, on the surface, but once they were actually LIVING IT – like the people in Venezuela are – something tells me those poor folks wouldn’t find it so “great”, afterall!!! In fact, they’d probably be hopping back on the next plane to America as fast as their precious feet could carry them! 

But as Christians/Messianic Jews/the Lord’s people, it is our job to SPIRITUALLY DISCERN THE SIGNS OF THE TIME AND NOT TO PUT ALL OUR *SPIRITUAL HOPE* INTO ONE, HUMAN BEING (be it Donald J. Trump or Mike Pence or WHOMEVER).

I WILL say THIS, though……If #4 from my list of scenarios up above is not true, (and there’s a very likely chance it’s not), then it’s possible that some highly catastrophic event (or FALSE FLAG EVENT?) will happen that’ll bring America to its knees, and I’m not totally sure how that would play out with a man who — theoretically speaking –WASN’T the “Modern-Day King Cyrus”. 

And if #5 from my list of scenarios is true — PURELY theoretically speaking — (and I’m really, truly hoping beyond all hope that it’s NOT true), then SEVERAL things would occur:

1). The people that DON’T like him NOW (on 11/17/16) will eventually START to like him, and even GROW to love him on a “worship-type level”

2). Many Christians will be DECEIVED by him and think he IS Almighty God in the flesh and the “Savior of the World and of America” (I’m NOT even kidding, folks!)

3). He will help to create a one-world gov’t system (one world religion, one world gov’t, and one world economy)

4). He will eventually require ALL men, women and children to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead, in order to be able to buy or sell (Revelation 13’s MARK OF THE BEAST)

5). He will PRETEND to make peace with Israel, then perform what’s known as THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION in which he’ll set himself up in the temple and declare that he’s God

6). He will pit himself above ALL gods (EVEN God Almighty) and call HIMSELF God!

7). He will make war with the saints (the TRUE Christians/Messianic Jews who adhere to the gospel, the COMPLETE gospel, from Old Testament to New Testament COMBINED)

But like I said, at THIS point, it’s too early to tell. But just be on your spiritual toes. And DON’T be fooled by any ONE person that puts ALL their faith and trust into ONE FALLIBLE HUMAN BEING (no matter WHO that fallible human being happens to be!)

Plus, one thing’s FOR SURE. We all need to PRAY for this nation, PRAY for Donald J. Trump and his administration, pray for ALL our unbelieving friends/family/coworkers and even pray for the Leftists and The Democratic Party/Candidates! In short, we need to start praying like never before for ALL Americans in this country!  

HOWEVER……THE SPIRITUAL BATTLE WAGING ON IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD TODAY GOES FAR *BEYOND* POLITICS AND AMERICAN PATRIOTISM, FOLKS! BECAUSE REMEMBER FOLKS: IT’S AN ALL-OUT WAR FOR YOUR **SOUL**, HERE!!!!

And P.S.: do you have any HEAVENLY/NEW JERUSALEM/JESUS-BEING-THE-ONLY-WAY-TO-SALVATION PATRIOTISM? If not, it’s time to get some!

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! 😉 

 

 

 

 

How to Read The Bible: A Beginner’s Guide

the bible made easy7 the bible made easy6

the bible made easy4 the bible made easy3 the bible made easy2 bible made easy4 bible made easy1

People will often use bible quotes on many things: news article, protest signs, movies, blogs, etc.

And for those of you who’ve NEVER stepped foot inside a Christian church and of whom did not/do not come from a religious background, you might possibly find all the different verse numbers confusing. And some of you might be wondering, “What do all those numbers mean? What do the colons in the middle stand for?” Well, let me tell you:

If, for example, someone references Psalms 30:12 for instance, it means they’re talking about BOOK of Psalms, CHAPTER 30, VERSE 12.

And IF someone references 2 Corinthians 13:5, it means 2ND BOOK of Corinthians, CHAPTER 13, VERSE 5.

Remember that it always goes by BOOK, CHAPTER, then VERSE.

The VERY FIRST VERSE of each CHAPTER will NEVER have a number “1” by it but instead will have the big CHAPTER NUMBER by it and then start listing the VERSE numbers underneath, starting with VERSE “2”, until the end of the CHAPTER.

For example, Genesis 3:1 [Book of Genesis, Chapter 3, Verse 1] DOES not have a “1” listed in the first verse, but INSTEAD just starts with BIG “3” IN BOLD [marking the start of the CHAPTER] and then has a small #2 at verse 2, on through the end of the chapter. Therefore, whenever someone references (whatever the chapter # is):1, you know they’re automatically referring to the FIRST VERSE **IN** THE CHAPTER!

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

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

===========

And if someone references 2 Corinthians 9: 5-14, it means 2ND BOOK of Corinthians, CHAPTER 9, VERSES 5-14!

===========

And if you’re reading a King James Bible, some of the words might trip you up and seem confusing to read at first. So I’ll clarify what they all mean:

[Thee = Your]    Example: “And I will establish my covenant betwixt me and thee….= “And I will establish my covenant between me and you/your generations after you”

[Thou = Your]    Example: “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers….” = Let no man despise your youth; but be you an example of the believers…”

[Thy/Thyself = Your]       Example: “Love thy neighbor as thyself= “Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

[Didst = Did]       Example: “Why didst thou therefore doubt?” = “Why Did You Doubt?”

[Thine = Your]    Example: “Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart” = “Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart”

[Thou Shalt Not/Thou Shalt = You Shall Not/You Shall]    Example: “Thou shalt honor thy mother & father” = “You shall honor your mother & father”

[Ye = You]           Example: “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done unto you” = “For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you”

And whenever you see a word ending in “est”, just remove the “st” and you’ll have the root word! Same with “unto”. Just remove the “un” and you’ve got your word! 

Examples: Comest = Come, Seest = See, Hearest = Hear, Goest = Go, Knowest= Know, Unto = To/Into, Etc.  

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

The bible starts with the OLD TESTAMENT. This is the time in history BEFORE Jesus Christ was born. In other words, it’s “Pre-Jesus Time”. And the time of the New Testament BEGINS right before/around the time Jesus Christ is *spiritually conceived* in Mary’s womb, as a pre-born baby.

However, Jesus Christ DID make “pre-flesh appearances” in the Old Testament; these are known as “Christophanies”. But during the time of the NEW TESTAMENT, Jesus Christ came to Earth IN THE FLESH, as a newborn, born to the virgin Mary (& her husband Joseph) in Bethlehem!

In other words, the OLD TESTAMENT is BEFORE Jesus Christ was born in the flesh and the NEW TESTAMENT was the time Jesus Christ WAS BORN IN THE FLESH to the virgin Mary, up to 33 years later when he died during the crucifixion for mankind’s sins. However, 3 days later, he was resurrected and he remained on the Earth for 40 more days. At the end of that 40 days, he ascended up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God the Heavenly Father! 😉

There were SEVERAL eyewitnesses to these events (the crucifixion and the ascension), even many who were not “Christian” at that time (namely, Romans). And yes, the New Testament continues EVEN AFTER Jesus ascended to Heaven and talks about “the church”, *post-ascension*, at the Feast of Pentecost and a little beyond.

Plus SEVERAL books in the bible point to BIBLE PROPHECY. It’s how God proves He is who he says HE is and how the bible proves it says what IT IS: the 100% written testimony of the Word of God and the Word of God is JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA ALMIGHTY!

But basically, the book of Daniel and Ezekiel in the Old Testament and the book of Matthew and Revelation in the New Testament give some very detailed descriptions about what’s going to befall the Lord’s people (as well as those who AREN’T the Lord’s people), at the End of Days, the Days in which we’re currently living in! [For example, the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states? That’s the beginning of THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION right there! GOD’S WRATH IS NOW UPON AMERICA!]

The Book of Revelation is the LAST BOOK in the NEW TESTAMENT. And the reason why it’s the last book is because it describes (IN DETAIL) what’s going to happen to the world in the End Days, the last days of human history. This is the time when GOD’S WRATH will befall the Earth! And all those who don’t put their faith, trust, love and obedience into Jesus Christ Almighty will just be besides themselves with fear, because they won’t know what’s happening in the world!

Economies will crash! Inflation will RISE! Terror attacks will happen! And then, as a “response” to all this “chaos”, a world leader will come on the stage and will appear to be “the answer to everyone’s problems”. He will set up a one world government, a one world religion and a one world economy. People will think he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread, but alas, he will be THE ENEMY OF MANKIND!

He will require ALL rich and poor, small and great, to get a “mark” on their right hand or their foreheads. And no man will be able to buy or sell, save he that has the mark. And the Lord says whoever takes the mark will be CONDEMNED FOR ETERNITY and thrown into THE LAKE OF FIRE!

And ALL people who don’t put their faith, trust, love and obedience into Jesus Christ WILL be deceived by this man! The Christians call him “Anti-Christ”, while ALL OTHER RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD (Islam, Judaism, Hinduim, Shamanism, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc.) will think that this “Anti-Christ” is THEIR MESSIAH! He will PRETEND to “come in the name of peace” but his SECRET GOAL IS TO DESTROY MANKIND FROM WITHIN!

However, one day, Jesus Christ Almighty…..the BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST will return to Earth someday to defeat Satan and his “dark forces” ALTOGETHER, and also to set up his Millennial Kingdom. And all those who did NOT put their faith, trust, love and obedience into the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ will mourn with weeping, realizing that the whole entire time that they lived on Earth, they were WRONG! But by then, it’ll be too late for them and their hearts and souls will be CRUSHED for eternity! ;(

And all the peoples of the world that PUT their faith, trust, love and obedience into Jesus Christ/Yeshua Almighty the whole time will REJOICE, for great shall be their rewards! They will also get to reign alongside Christ for 1,000 years in his Millennial Kingdom! Revelation chapters 21-22 DETAILS the “eternal resting place” for all the Lord’s true people! And it’ll be GLORIOUS! 😉

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

Okay, so it seems today that we’ve now been dealt a devastating blow by SCOTUS/the U.S. Supreme Court as it pertains to gay “marriage”. Gay “marriage” is now legal in all 50 states! And NOW……..the Wrath of God upon America is COMPLETE!

Now, as a true, bible-believing/bible-adhering Christian, you may feel angry, hurt, disillusioned, betrayed, and even fearful for the implications of this nation and this world.

And while all of those emotions are understandable, you can’t give up the fight for biblical values just YET, folks! This is a HIGHLY CRITICAL time in human history! People need to hear the gospel message NOW MORE THAN EVER!

“But just what ARE the long-term implications of today’s Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage?”, you may ask. And the answer is THIS: people will soon try to legalize plural marriage/polygamy, pedo/incest marriage, bestiality marriage, and even inanimate object marriage. And christian persecution (persecution OF Christians, not BY Christians) will INCREASE!

What are the evidences of this? They are as follows:

1). “Threeway marriages” have ALREADY been in the making……as evidenced here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2972542/They-look-like-new-boy-band-s-world-s-THREE-WAY-sex-marriage-Gay-Thai-men-tie-knot-fairytale-ceremony.html

and here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2611020/Meet-worlds-married-lesbian-threesome-baby-make-four-July.html

2). Legalization of plural marriages is ALREADY being called for:

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/06/gay-marriage-decision-polygamy-119469.html#.VY6Cwv6E2J0

3). Pedo/incest marriages are ALSO already being called for:

  • 18-year NY girl set to marry her BIOLOGICAL FATHER in NJ

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2914138/Teenager-dating-father-two-years-reveals-pair-planning-married-children.html

  • 40-year old woman set to marry her own SON

  • 72-year old grandmother to “have surrogate baby” with grandson

http://www.news.com.au/world/man-to-have-baby-with-his-lover-grandma/story-e6frfkz0-1225860821857

4). “Inanimate Object” marriage is already being called for (no joke!)

  • Tokyo man “marries” videogame character (what has the world come to?)

http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/12/16/japan.virtual.wedding/

  • Florida man demands right to marry porn-laden computer

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/10814098/marriage-gay-marriage-mac-wedding-computer-Florida-Utah.html

5). BESTIALITY ‘MARRIAGE’ AND/OR RELATIONSHIPS:

1). Man “claims” he had consensual relationship with dolphin “Dolly”, claims dolphin seduced him

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2934586/Man-SEX-dolphin-1970s-claims-new-film-performing-mammal-one-seduced-him.html

2). British woman marries DOLPHIN/etc. — http://thefw.com/weirdest-marriages-of-the-world-photos-videos/

3). Human-animal marriage (in general) — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human%E2%80%93animal_marriage

As for the INCREASE in Christian persecution that’s going to occur (EVEN among many “Christians” themselves, or those who “claim” to be “Christian”?) That will be DUE to the fact of John 1:5 which expressly states: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. 

And also John 15: 18-23 which proclaims: If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also”

So in other words, people of darkness and “wayward/lost *Christians*” don’t truly KNOW Jesus Christ (“the truth and the light”) and so BECAUSE they don’t know Jesus Christ, they won’t ADHERE to Jesus Christ OR the Lord’s servants. They will be like the epitome of Isaiah 5:20 which states “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” 

So in other words, they HATE “the truth and the light” (Jesus Christ Almighty) because they don’t understand Him or his gospel message. The bible seems “so very EVIL” to them. They don’t get it. And BECAUSE they don’t get it, things that are condemned as “SIN” in the bible seem righteous and holy to THEM! That’s what the Isaiah passage is talking about, essentially. And to think that was prophesied in the times of the Old Testament is just AMAZING! Anyways, moving on……..

Just look all throughout the bible. ALL servants of God suffered some sort of persecution (ESPECIALLY during the times of the New Testament!) In the Old Testament, the prophet Daniel was thrown into the Lions Den. Why? Because he refused to bow down & worship the King of Babylon. He still prayed to the Lord God of the bible, ONLY. When some of the King’s servants caught on to this, they accused Daniel of breaking the law and thus, Daniel was thrown into the Lions Den. But Daniel trusted the Lord 100% and so the Lord closed the mouths of the lions. See what happens when we show a great strength of trust & faith? 😉

Anyways, in the New Testament, John the Baptist lost his very head for his testimony of Jesus Christ! The prophet Steven was ALSO martyred! As were several others! However, the point is, IF you are trying to live in 100% accordance with the bible and with the Lord Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua, that WON’T go without punishment “by the world”.

James 4:4 states “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God”.

John 15:19 says “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you”

But lets just put this differently, for a minute. If you are NOT suffering “persecution” in some way, shape or form, you are NOT truly living by the bible and the bible’s standards of faith, trust & repentance! Think of all the mega-churches today…….how many “attendees” they have, how much $$$$ they’re making……

Some people may turn and say to themselves: “WOW…..the Lord must be doing some AMAZING work in the mega-churches today, as they seem to be growing more **properous** than ever!” 

But what these poor folks don’t realize is that mega-churches are prosperous $$$$ for a REASON and that reason is NOT due to the God of the Bible but rather to SATAN!!!!!!

For IF these mega-preachers cared ANYTHING for the “lost sheep”, (meaning, all the “lost souls” out there without the saving knowledge/protective covering of Jesus Christ Almighty), they’d be preaching about SIN, REPENTANCE OF SIN, THE IMPORTANCE OF FULL-WATER-IMMERSION BAPTISM **IMMEDIATELY** UPON FIRST BELIEVING IN JESUS CHRIST, would be teaching about the Lord’s TRUE holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.), would be teaching about ALL THE FALSE CATHOLIC CHURCH DOCTRINES, would be adhering to the Lord’s TRUE Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday twilight), would be preaching about the ABOMINATIONS of homosexuality and abortion and how they’ve completley RUINED this country, as well as this world!

And the REASON you will never hear them preaching the Lord’s TRUE message of Salvation, etc. is BECAUSE they are “government-funded”. However, oddly enough, even ones that AREN’T government-funded have seemed to jump on the “sin is okay” bandwagon in today’s moral “culture war”. Only a VERY few selective “ministries” are smart enough, brave enough and BOLD ENOUGH to “go against the tide of LGBT/ETC. immortality”.

People are oftentimes talking about a rising “crime problem” in today’s world. But essentially, it’s not a crime problem but a SIN PROBLEM. Why aren’t more people seeing that? We’ve become BLIND as a nation, and as a world.

People are talking about “change”, saying things “we’re changing for the better, as a nation”, “we’re making progress as a nation”, etc. but the ONLY true “PROGRESS” this nation seems to be making is sending itself STRAIGHT TO HELL in a handbasket! 

But moving on to my next point……….Each “biblical-roots” Christian is going to suffer persecution in today’s world. It’s just that the DEGREE of persecution will vary from person to person. Some will be fired from their jobs or demoted (as has already happened in many cases, in today’s news headlines). Some will be disowned by their family, church and/or friends (or at the very least, seen as a total outcast). Some will be assaulted or harassed. Some will be imprisoned. Some will lose their homes and/or business to foreclosure to the bank(s). Some will even be beheaded/lose their VERY LIVES for the sake of Christ! 

In fact, I’ve written about this in a previous post: (a must-read!!!!)

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2014/07/24/the-coming-tribulation-revelation-210/

However, also please remember that WHEN you are persecuted for the Lord Jesus Christ, COUNT IT AS JOY, for it says in Matthew 5:11-12: “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you”.

And remember “biblical-roots Christians”, DON’T GIVE UP! AT **ANY** COST! No matter what! EVEN if it costs you your very LIFE! Because remember………YOU giving up is EXACTLY what Satan and his demons want, so don’t let them win AT ANY PRICE! Afterall, this isn’t a game and your Eternal Salvation’s at stake, folks! 

I leave you with THIS:

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

 

“End of the World” Music Videos/Commercials/Etc.: Is There Something TO It?

Upon viewing some of today’s modern music videos and commercials (especially without the sound on), I can’t help but notice that the common visual theme in them seems to be a nuclear act/end of the world type scenario. Why so many? Is there something TO it?

I believe that there IS! The Dark Side is NOTORIOUS for sending out “pre-signals” of things before they actually happen. Remember the death of Brian the dog on Family Guy? Some have connected it with the death of Paul Walker, saying the family guy episode PRETOLD of how Paul Walker was going to die. Ofcourse, rather or not that’s actually true or not is up for debate. Still, there’s also various other events that many believe to have been seemingly “pre-planned”.

But that fact aside, the “End Times” theme is alot MORE than “just coincidence”. And though it might be an attempt at mocking Christians and the “End of Days”, I think it goes alot deeper than that. Something’s definitely going on, here. Don’t be deceived, people! This is bible prophecy/End of Days REALIZED!

The Dark Side is foretelling about the End of Days scenario and their part in it as though they’re PROUD of it! They don’t even TRY to hide things, anymore! They’re becoming more and more blatant about it! The “secret occultists” never expected in a million of years for people to actually do their research on these things! And so now they have NO CHOICE but to put it out in the open! Sadly, many people are STILL deceived/misinformed about such matters!

The End Times/End of Days are discussed in the bible in the following passages: (if there’s any I missed, I apologize!)

NEW TESTAMENT:

  • 2 Timothy 4:3-4
  • Acts 17:11
  • Matthew 24: ENTIRE CHAPTER
  • 2 Peter 3: 1-18
  • 2 Peter 3:3-4
  • 1 Thessalonians 5: 1-9
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
  • Luke 21: 23-24
  • Revelation: ENTIRE CHAPTER

OLD TESTAMENT:

  • Isaiah chapters 2, 11, 13-14, 27, etc.
  • Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, etc.
  • Daniel chapters 7-9
  • Daniel chapters 11-12
  • Zechariah chapters 1-2, 4-6, and 8-14

Truth be told, there’s been a TON of movies with the “End Times” theme. Too many to name, in fact. 

And HERE, down below, are some of the music videos and/or commercials I was talking about. View them without the sound on, just looking at all the imagery and see what you think:

2 Peter 3:3-4 says that in the Last Days, scoffers/mockers would come such as THESE:

The Spirit of FEAR: Satan’s Attack On The Soul

Some days, our walk with Jesus Christ/Yeshua is really, really strong and we’re bold and confident in our faith. But then over time, if we’re not careful, fear and doubt begin to grip our souls as Satan and his demons work OVERTIME to make sure that happens in our lives! Many “Christians” out there today think that: “There’s NO NEED to spiritually battle Satan and his demons, Jesus ALREADY won the victory over Satan at the cross”. And my, oh MY, how those poor folks are DECEIVED! For 1 Peter 5:8 states: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour“.

Now, mentally picture this for just a moment. Imagine you are in a forest, and you’re lost and aren’t sure what direction to take. There’s a violent animal in that forest, hiding behind trees and tall brushes of grass, seeking whom he may devour. And that animal’s like a dog: he can smell doubt/fear from a MILE away! And as you’re slowly walking through this “forest”, (the forest of your SOUL, that is), are you going to have faith and call upon the name of the Lord to guide you through safely and “accurately” or are you gonna doubt and start to freak out at the VERY first audible sound of the evil animal (Satan) roaring?

Remember that story in the Old Testament when King Nebuchadnezzar threw Daniel (one of the Lord’s prophets) into the LIONS DEN for his refusal to abandon praying to the Lord ONLY (the only TRUE God of the universe, the creator and maker of all things?) Did Daniel feel fearful at all when placed into the LIONS DEN as punishment? It doesn’t look like it, from how the biblical narrative reads. And what happened as a result of Daniel NOT doubting and having faith that the Lord would protect him? The Lord closed the lions mouth so that they couldn’t even hurt Daniel!

And maybe perhaps the lions lay at Daniel’s feet and Daniel even got to pet the lions (as though they were “pets”) but we’ll never know. The point is, Daniel FEARED NOT! [Daniel, chapter 6 in the Old Testament tells the whole story, while Daniel 6: 16-21 focuses on the main parts of how Daniel was thrown into the Lions Den and then overcame. And that is particularly MIRACULOUS since most people (if they were to be completely honest) would probably cover their eyes and cower in fear. 

I think it was Daniel’s FAITH and TRUST IN THE LORD that saved him! For if Daniel had doubted, those lions probably would’ve been allowed to tear him to bits! There’s many cases in the bible where God wasn’t pleased when prophets doubted during the times of the Old Testament. However, when God returned as Jesus in the New Testament, he was a bit more patient. Still not pleased about the lack of faith but gently telling the disciples how to get MORE of it! 

But in fact, just 3 chapters earlier in Daniel 3 in the Old Testament, we also read about how Daniel’s 3 friends (fellow servants of the Lord of the bible) were THROWN INTO A FIERY FURNACE and didn’t have one single MARK on them! All because they wouldn’t bow down to an IDOL that the King of Babylon had set up for “worship”. The narrative can be read at Daniel 3: 13-24! There, we read how Daniel’s 3 friends WEREN’T BURNT BY THE FIRE ***DUE*** to their faith in the Lord of the bible!  

However, some of the OTHER Old Testament prophets weren’t so lucky. My heart breaks for Elijah when we read the Old Testament narrative of how he FEARED JEZEBEL AND FLEED FOR HIS **LIFE**! Because BEFORE he started to fear, he had VERY strong faith and was doing pretty much everything the Lord had asked him to do. But AFTER Jezebel made a threat on his life, HE FLED! And the arrogant part of me is always thinking: “Why didn’t he just face that old witch HEAD ON and tell her what a piece of sinful filth/affliction she was with the bold declaration to her face ‘ain’t nothing you can do to me, outside of the Lord’s power!” My heart absolutely breaks for Elijah every single time I read that passage [1 Kings 19 in the Old Testament].    

And in general, the fear in our minds, hearts, bodies and spirits starts out so small. “There’s alot of lay-offs going around. What if I get layed off and can no longer support my family?” Or “I feel like I’ve done alot for the Lord lately but what if I haven’t done nearly enough and the Lord’s angry with me?” Or “What if the Lord’s angry with me or has given up on me? What if the Lord hates me, now?” and so and so forth.

It starts out SO SMALL and then over time, those fears can simply become OVERPOWERING, if one does not call upon the name of the Lord to control those thoughts…..It’s that knotted feeling in the stomach, the feeling that something isn’t quite right. It’s that fear that makes us wake up in the middle of the night, unable to sleep. For some, it’s the Lord’s way of drawing that person to a state of repentance for their sins. But for others, it’s Satan’s blatant attack upon their mind, heart, body and spirit.

And in fact, in Luke 21:26, it says: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken”.

Truth be told, Satan (as well as all his demons) HATES humans (as well as the entire section of the “heavenly congregation” in heaven that did NOT rebel or “see things Satan’s way”). And he knows he can’t destroy the RIGHTEOUS ANGELS of the Lord, so now, he AND his demons are wrecking havoc upon this Earth to try to destroy as many humans FROM WITHIN as they possibly can!

Many Christians today think that “demons no longer exist” and were only around during the time of the New Testament! HA! DON’T BE FOOLED! I submit to you today that they’re real, and “thriving” in today’s fallen world! Many famous celebrities even become POSSESSED by them (as Satan and his demonoids are NO respector of persons, even those who claim to “worship them”!) Check it out! The “bass playing” in and of itself, right off the bat, sounds HELLISH, as though demons were playing it! The **4:05-4:26** and **6:15-6:25** marks where TORI AMOS IS **CLEARLY DEMONICALLY POSSESSED** SAYS IT ALL!!!

Rather we are a believer in Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ or we aren’t, we’ve ALL felt “fearful” at times in our lives. And lets face it, Satan and his demons are NOTORIOUS for getting Christians and Jews to FEAR! We’ve worried about terrorist attacks, our finances, our taxes, the future of this country, etc. And while it’s perfectly normal/common for humans to worry about those things, the bible has a slightly DIFFERENT approach when it comes to FEAR:

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”

Psalm 118:6 (KJV) The LORD is on my side; I will not fear : what can man do unto me?”

Deuteronomy 31:6 (KJV) Be strong and of a good courage , fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee”

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV) Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed ; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” 

Matthew 6:30 (KJV) “Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?”

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”

Matthew 6:26 (KJV) “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”

Jeremiah 1:8 (KJV)Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD” (I honestly think this one’s talking about **demonic manifestations** of Satan and/or his demons!!! And remember, saints: With 100% faith in Jesus Christ Almighty, we have the 100% power to cast out demons for Jesus has said so!!!!!)

And that’s just a mere “sample”. There’s SO MANY MORE passages on FEAR and controlling/overcoming it in the bible. But for the sake of time & space, I just focused on those particular passages. I hope they will help you in your spiritual walk with God, today!

But the question remains. Do you fear something today? Do you fear a person? A thing? A cancer diagnosis? A lack of faith? A circumstance? Rebuke that fear right now this very second in the name of Jesus Christ Almighty! He CAN and he DOES have the power to wipe that fear AWAY! You just have to let Him!

“LORD JESUS, ANYONE THAT READS THIS POST, I REBUKE THE SPIRIT OF FEAR OUT OF THEIR MINDS, HEARTS, BODIES, AND SPIRITS. PLEASE CLEANSE THEM AND SET THEM FREE **AND** GIVE THEM A NEW MIND, HEART, BODY AND SPIRIT IN **YOU**, LORD! PLEASE GIVE THEM A FAITH NOW THAT’S **SO STRONG**, **NOT EVEN** THE THREAT OF DEATH OR TORTURE CAN TAKE IT AWAY! PLEASE GIVE THEM A FAITH THAT’S **SO STRONG**, THEY’D BE ABLE TO LAUGH IN SATAN’S AND THE DEMON’S FACES WHENEVER THEY MAKE BLATANT THREATS AGAINST THEM! PLEASE PROTECT THEM, BLESS THEM AND KEEP THEM FOR ALL ETERNITY! AMEN!”

FOUR DAYS LEFT: Freak supermoon, eclipse and asteroid on SAME DAY ‘signal end of world’ [Note: The world’s not going to end, per say, but this is VERY PROPHETIC, nonetheless, since Jesus was quoted in the bible as saying that IN the last days, there would be “signs” in the sun, moon and stars and that these “signs” signified his soon coming return to the Earth! But when he comes the 2nd time to Earth, he’ll be coming with GREAT WRATH and a 2-edged sword towards Satan, the one world gov’t system, and all those people who mocked him or took the mark of the beast!]

Third Jewish Temple News (be sure to keep an eye on this latest development, folks!) 

Note: When even Jews “themselves” start disregarding the Old Testament, placing the “Talmud” (“traditions of man”) OVER the Old AND NEW Testament (THE TRUE WRITTEN WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD AND HIS CREATION), you just KNOW we’re living in the Last Days, folks! Jerusalem and surrounding areas USED to be the “holy land”, back in ancient biblical times. But NOW, it’s mostly become a “spiritual wasteland”, as the following headline indicates:

Matthew 24:12 and 2 Timothy 3:1-9 **ACTUALIZED** IN TODAY’S GLOBAL SOCIETY:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was” – 2 Timothy 3: 1-9

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” – Matthew 24:12

Today’s news headlines are CHALK FULL of “love waxing cold” and the like. People killing each other for no reason or for “insurance money” and the like. Famous married people having affairs when their spouse needs them the most. All the heated talk and NEGATIVE INSULTS that people continually/perpetually make to each other on any “commenting” site underneath a news article, Youtube video, Yahoo Answers question or blog, etc.

In today’s culture, most people no longer care about or even BELIEVE in the concept of “sin” and just want to roll with it/flaunt it! Look at today’s modern-day Gay Movement, for example. Instead of recognizing sodomy for the sin it really is, these poor folks want to FLAUNT it! And truth be told, if “gay love” was REALLY about love, you wouldn’t have all these *promiscuous images/activities* at the “gay pride rallys” and in “gay culture” and what not. Think about it, folks!

10 years ago, I thought society was pretty bad when it came to the “pro-self” and “pro-sin” movement. Now, in the year 2015, it’s even worse! Who would’ve THOUGHT 10 years ago, that we’d someday have the first THROUPLE “marriage” or that an 18-year old girl living on the East Coast was fixing to marry her FATHER? (Yes, FATHER, of all people!)

And people called me crazy a year ago when I said that it’d only be a matter of time before certain people in the U.S. will demand commune marriages (in general), incest marriages and will also likely someday demand pedo marriages (they already do this in some middle east countries under the “guise” of Islam), bestiality marriages (they most recently had an article about a guy who carried on what HE calls a consenual sexual relationship with a dolphin – and the media wants that out there because….??), inanimate object marriage (this has already happened in Japan, I think?), robot marriage, etc. until there will be a push for marriage to not even be an officially recognized institution anymore.

However, we know that Jesus Christ will likely return to the Earth BEFORE marriage and the concept of marriage has COMPLETELY eroded since it’s written in Matthew 24: 37-39But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man [Jesus Christ] be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be”.

**PLUS MANY, MANY MORE SIGNS! We’re definitely living in the Last Days, people! WAKE UP! The sooner you realize this and come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ Almighty and get baptized in his great, heavenly name, the better! And just think. All the signs I mentioned up above? Those are ONLY the TIP of the iceberg! There’s many, many more signs I haven’t listed (for the sake of time/space, etc.)!
