How To Achieve The Fruits of the Holy Spirit:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ACTS 2:1-13:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Galatians 5: 22-23

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Self-Application Study Guide Questions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

The Isaiah 5:20/Ephesians 6:12 WARS – Overtaking A Town Near YOU!

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! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sightWoe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!” – [Isaiah 5:20-23]

Okay, starting off here, lets just take a real quick look at some of the things that Jesus condemns and considers “an abomination” (according to the scriptures, both Old Testament AND New Testament):

  • Abortion
  • Homosexuality
  • Cross-dressing
  • Transgenderism
  • Sexual relations outside of marriage
  • Lying
  • Stealing
  • Drunkeness
  • Cussing (i.e. saying the Lord’s name in vain)
  • Adultery/Sexual promiscuity
  • Divorce & Remarriage OUTSIDE of biblical allocations
  • Premarital sex
  • ETC.

And now, take a look around you at today’s world and today’s society. Nearly EVERY single thing on that list (and then some) is RUNNING RAMPANT in today’s society and in today’s world! (Sad, isn’t it?) In fact, ALL of these things are now seen as “good” or “OK” in today’s secular world, while the bible/biblical values are seen (by the “secular world”, anyways) as “bad, bad, bad!”

In the year 2015 and on, we’ve seen SEVERAL cases of born-again Christians attacked for their faith in Jesus Christ and FOR the bible, God’s Written Word! Christian bakers being sued for not making a “gay wedding cake”, a professor getting in trouble for not referring to a student by their “prefered transgender pronoun”, Kim Davis receiving alot of flack for refusing to sign a “gay marriage certificate”, etc. And the “attacks” on Christians and/or the bible have only gotten worse over the years! 

In fact, it’s now gotten so bad that some have even gone so far as to use THE BIBLE ITSELF **in** their attacks against Christians! (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?) 

In fact, here’s an opinion piece from a publication that, oddly enough, quotes Isaiah 5:20 and even starts off by using it in the correct context right after quoting it (wow, I’m amazed), but then further goes on to “twist” the piece to do what it (the writing piece itself) claims it’s NOT doing (i.e. putting all Republican Christians into a single box).

The piece more or less claims (between the lines) that one is not truly “Christian” if they voted Republican or one is not truly “Christian” if they didn’t vote for Democrats/*social justice!* The piece then ends with a “battle call” to “join the resistance/join the *Democratic Social Justice cause*.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/calling-good-what-is-evil-and-evil-what-is-good_us_5852eac9e4b0b333cf73ec52

But how can that BE? How can an entire “movement” that goes against nearly EVERY single biblical practice call itself “Christian” in any WAY, shape or form? That’s what really brittles my spiritual bones, folks! Democrat/Social Justice policy is in NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM even *remotely* “Christian”. Practically EVERY SINGLE PLATFORM they fight for on the Democratic/*Social Justice Platform* is UNBIBLICAL! I can PROVE it to you! The Democratic (*Social Justice*) Party CHAMPIONS such things as:

  • LATE-TERM ABORTION (OR RATHER ABORTION IN GENERAL)
  • HOMOSEXUALITY
  • TRANSGENDERISM/SEX “CHANGES”
  • DRAG QUEEN “STORY HOUR” WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
  • GAY “MARRIAGE”
  • GAY “ADOPTION”
  • LGBT “PROMOTION” (EVEN AMONG YOUNG CHILDREN)
  • TAKING BIBLE/PRAYER OUT OF SCHOOLS
  • GOING AFTER “PRO-LIFE PREGNANCY CENTERS”
  • GENDER IDEOLOGY
  • ETC.

Now lets turn to the bible to see why NONE of those things under the Democratic/*Social Justice Umbrella* are BIBLICAL! **NONE!**

So what is “Social Justice” about, you might ask? I’m glad you asked! Social “Justice”, as it is known today in 2019, is something ENTIRELY DIFFERENT than what it very first started out as during the Civil Rights Movement. During the Civil Rights Movement, it was about pure Civil Rights. Social justice (in 2019) is defined as: “justice in terms of the distribution of wealth (i.e. SOCIALISM, anyone?), opportunities, and privileges within a society”.

However, NOW, in the year 2019 and beyond, it’s about things that go WELL BEYOND “civil rights” (i.e. gender ideology, race/gender shaming – i.e. “toxic masculinity” , “white priviledge”, homosexual “rights”, PROMOTION OF SOCIALISM, etc.) In fact, just 4 days ago (on January 29, 2019), Noah Rothman released a book entitled: UNJUST –  SOCIAL JUSTICE & THE UNMASKING OF AMERICA“, which discusses those very issues, plus more!

 

And just to provide the most latest example, on January 9th of this year (2019), Kathy Tran (D-Virginia) introduced TWO new Democratic/*Social Justice* bills: ONE bill was a LATE-TERM ABORTION BILL that allows abortions UP UNTIL BIRTH (HB-2491), while her OTHER bill (HB-2495) was a “Pro-Life” bill……FOR CATEPILLARS!!!!!

LATE-TERM ABORTION BILL:

PRO-LIFE BILL……FOR CATEPILARS:

https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?191+sum+HB2495

Therefore folks, this SERIOUSLY raises the questions (for both Conservatives and Liberals, alike): Just what TYPE of society, nation and WORLD do we live in, when legislation is now being introduced that gives CATEPILLARS more “rights” than FULL-TERM-JUST-ABOUT-TO-BE-BORN **HUMAN BABIES**?????? WHO gets to define what’s “human” or not, besides God himself (who CREATED humans, in the first place?????) And if full-term human babies don’t have any “rights”, then who DOES? And WHO gets to decide? Do you see where I’m going with this, folks???

In other words, the Democratic *Social Justice Warriors* are now trying to RE-DEFINE what’s **HUMAN!** (Just like they previously tried to REDEFINE what “marriage” is, REDEFINE what a “family” is, REDEFINE what “love” is, REDEFINE what “gender” is, REDEFINE what *true righteousness/child of God* is!!!!) Does that scare you? Shock you? Horrify you? IT SHOULD, FOLKS! Because that’s the type of ‘world’, ‘nation’ and ‘end times society’ that we live in, now…..where animals/insects/bugs/A.I. robots/etc. now have more “rights” than the average, human!

(And hey – if you thougtht that New York was the ONLY state with late-term abortion on the books – or soon to be on the books – THINK AGAIN! It’s ALREADY in Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Vermont, Washington D.C. and Oregon – and will SOON have bills for it introduced and/or passed in VIRGINIA, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts!)

But see, folks? That’s what they do. If the world was a football field……..they keep removing the goal posts of “abominations” further and further down the field. They use “buzz words” and “buzz phrases” as their “ammo” to get this accomplished (“Homophobia/Transphobia”, “Islamophobia”, “Toxic Masculinity”, “White Priviledge”, “Love Wins” and “Choice”, anyone?) They even go so far as to LIE to the American (and global, non-American) people! In short, they’ll stop at NOTHING to achieve their goals of REMOVING GOD/THE BIBLE/BIBLICAL MORALS FROM SOCIETY AND THE WORLD and instead, installing the “Darwinian way of life”.

They “claim” it’s nothing but a POLITICAL fight. But at the heart of the matter, it’s NOT so much a political fight so much as it is actually a SPIRITUAL FIGHT…….the fight between good and evil. But in the year 2019 and beyond, the forces of darkness are trying to BLEND the lines between good and evil so that neither one is clearly distinctable anymore! And thus, the Ephesians 6:12 WAR and the Isaiah 5:20 WARS have started! And they’re BOTH only gonna get worse over time!

And hey, if you already thought the “twisting Isaiah 5:20 out of context” article by the “liberal publication” was bad enough, I was quickly able to find FOUR seperate articles (back to back) that tried to use THE BIBLE ITSELF (of all things) to try to claim that “abortion” was NOT condemned in the bible!

(And again, please note: the liberal publication in question is likely one of MANY that does this sort’ve thing……..using the bible out of context, in order to “attack” the God-fearing Christians out there that DO use the bible in the correct, biblical context……But remember: the people at these types of liberal publications are “lost souls” and are VERY spiritually deceived and we must PRAY for them, in the name of Jesus!) 

Below is a list of 50+ bible verses that DO condemn abortion/the concept of it, while underneath all the verses, I have included the 4 “unbiblical” articles in question: 

[Note: Abortion – even just the mere “concept” of it – is condemned in the bible in over 77+ scriptures in the bible:  Genesis 1:27, Genesis 2:7, Job 12:10, Psalm 139:13-16, 1 Samuel 2:6-10, Job 31:15, Isaiah 64:6-8, Nehemiah 9:6, Job 33:4, Acts 17:24-29, Job 10:8-12, Psalm 100:3-5, Colossians 1:15-18, Genesis 18:10-14, Genesis 21:2, Genesis 48:8-9, Proverbs 17:6, Genesis 25:21, 1 Samuel 1:18-20, Isaiah 8:18, Genesis 29:31-35, Psalm 113:9, Hosea 9:10-11, Genesis 30:22-24, Psalm 127:3-5, Genesis 33:5, Psalm 128:3-4, Job 10:12, Job 10:18, Jeremiah 20:17-18, Luke 1:35-38, Psalm 51:5, Matthew 1:18-21, Genesis 16:11, Psalm 71:6-7, Isaiah 49:1, Isaiah 49:5, Genesis 25:22-26, Psalm 139: 13-16, Jeremiah 1:5, Job 3:11, Job 3:16, Ecclesiastes 5:15, Hosea 12:3, Job 31:15, ***Isaiah 7:14***, Luke 1: 13-17, Psalm 22: 9-10, Isaiah 44:2, Isaiah 44:24-28, Luke 1: 41-44, Psalm 58:3, Isaiah 46: 3-5, Galatians 1:15, Genesis 19:36-38, Matthew 1:3, Exodus 20:13, DEUTERONOMY 30:19, Matthew 19:18, Exodus 23:7, Proverbs 6:17, Romans 13:9-10, Exodus 1:15-17, Deuteronomy 18:9-10, Deuteronomy 18:12, Psalm 106:35-43, Leviticus 18:21, Leviticus 18:24, Leviticus 18:24-30, 2 Kings 16: 1-4, Jeremiah 32:35, Leviticus 20:1-6, 2 Kings 17:16-20, Ezekiel 16:20-21, Deuteronomy 12:30-31, 2 Kings 21:6, Exodus 21:22-25, Proverbs 28:17, Amos 1:13-15, & Deuteronomy 27:25]

And on the case of homosexuality, I quickly found EIGHT articles from the liberal publication in question that attempt to use the bible (once again) to *falsely* claim that homosexuality isn’t a sin! EIGHT! And this is just the articles that I know about…….there might be more…….

And once again, homosexuality is CONDEMNED in the bible in: OLD TESTAMENT in Leviticus 5:3, Leviticus 18:22 (24-30), Leviticus 20:13, Genesis 18:20, Genesis 19:4-13 (*19:5* key verse), Judges 19: 22-24, 1 Kings 14: 22-24, 1 Kings 15: 11-13, 1 Kings 22:46, 2 Kings 23: 4-7 (*23:7* key verse), Ezekiel 16:50, & Daniel 11:37 and NEW TESTAMENT in Romans 1: 18-32, 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11, 1 Timothy 1: 8-11, Jude 1:4, Jude 1:7, Jude 1:19, Matthew 19:1-8 (*4-6* key verse), Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5: 3-7, Colossians 3:5-7, Titus 1:16, & Revelation 21:27!

But now, let us unpack this (the Democrat *Social Justice* causes) a bit further and take a much deeper look into all of their “buzz words” and “buzz phrases” and what those words/phrases ACTUALLY mean:

  • “Planned Parenthood” = PLANNED MURDERHOOD
  • “Choice” = THE CHOICE TO SEXUALLY SIN AND TO MURDER – *FREELY AND OPENLY* AND WITHOUT LEGAL REPERCUSSIONS OR LEGAL LIMITS
  • “Love/Love Wins” = SODOMY WINS/SIN WINS
  • “Gay Pride” = SIN PRIDE/SODOMY PRIDE/PRIDE OF SODOMY
  • “Homophobia” = HOMOSEXUALS’ **FEAR** OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • “Islamophobia” = MUSLIMS’ **FEAR** OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • “Transphobia” = TRANSGENDERS’ **FEAR** OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
  • “Born This Way” = AN UNREPENTANT SINNER’S WAY OF TRYING TO SAY “GOD MADE A MISTAKE”
  • “White Priviledge” = RACE-SHAMING (SOMETHING THAT THE BIBLE SPECIFICALLY CONDEMNS IN GALATIANS 3: 28-29! And please note: I am ALSO against “race-shaming” of **ANY** race in general – be it African-American, Asian, Hispanic, etc.! 
  • “Toxic Masculinity” = LEFTIST **FEAR** OVER GOD’S NATURAL CREATION OF TESTOSTERONE-DOMINANT BIOLOGICAL MALES (THE WAY BIOLOGICAL MALES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE!)
  • “Cisgender” = LEFTIST **FEAR** OVER WHAT IS BIOLGICALLY “NORMAL
  • “Death With Dignity” = LEFTISTS TRYING TO INSTALL A **POSITIVE** WORD (“DIGNITY”) WITH A *NEGATIVE/NON-BIBLICAL ACTION* – I.E. “SUICIDE”
  • “Reproductive Rights/Freedom” = THE RIGHT FOR A NON-SAVED PERSON OR LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN TO “SEXUALLY SIN” – AND NOT FACE REPERCUSSION OVER THAT “SEXUAL SIN”
  • “My Body, My Choice” = THE “RIGHT” FOR A PREGNANT WOMAN TO KILL THE BABY THAT IS WITHIN HER (i.e. THROUGH ABORTION, ETC.)
  • “Abortion” = REMOVING THE UNBORN CHILD OUT OF THE WOMB – PIECE BY PIECE, LIMB BY LIMB
  • “Late-term abortion” = REMOVING THE FULLY-TERMED/NEARLY FULLY-TERMED CHILD OUT OF THE WOMB – PIECE BY PIECE, LIMB BY LIMB
  • “Partial-birth abortion” = MURDERING A CHILD THAT IS BORN PRE-MATURELY
  • “LGBT” = ACRONYMS FOR SEVERAL WORDS BY WHICH TO IDENTIFY *SODOMY* WITH
  • “LGBT rights” = THE RIGHT FOR *SODOMITES* TO CONTINUE SINNING/LIVING IN SIN/SODOMY WITHOUT ANY MAJOR REPERCUSSIONS (LEGALLY OR SOCIETALLY)

But yet, the REALLY sad & ironic thing is THIS: The people that are seemingly MOST ADVERSE to hearing the gospel – (the TRUE gospel and not the “watered-down” versions taught in many American churches today) – are the ones that Jesus Christ wants to save THE MOST!

Jesus says the following in Luke 5:31-32 [New Testament, Book of Luke, Chapter 5, Verses 31-32]: “And Jesus answering said unto them, ‘They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance“.

In other words, Jesus is far more concerned with saving the ones who are MOST ADVERSE to hearing the gospel than those who are ALREADY OPEN to hearing AND obeying the gospel since those who are ALREADY OPEN to AND obeying the gospel in their hearts are ALREADY saved (in the Lord Jesus’s eyes), while those who are NOT OPEN to the gospel are the ones who need to get saved THE MOSTmake any sense, people?

But how can he HEAL them and SAVE them, when most of them just flat out REFUSE to be saved in the name of Jesus? And yet others MOCK the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ, secretly trying to convince themselves that it’s too good to be true! But ya want to know the IRONIC thing? It’s actually SATAN’S lies that are “too good to be true”. 

Satan LIES to Progressive/Democratic Social Justice Liberals, day in and day out (as he does the whole of humanity, don’t get me wrong, here). He tells them LIES such as: “There’s no such things as heaven or hell”, “Jesus is just a myth”, “Republicans are the devil”, “There’s no such thing as evil”, “It’s A-OK to be gay/transgender”, “Jesus only sends people like Hitler to hell”, “everybody goes to heaven – unless they were Hitler”, “capitalism is evil”, “Pro-Life is EVIL”, “Traditional Marriage is EVIL”, “Traditional Gender is EVIL”, “The Bible is EVIL”, etc.

And sadly, many Progressive liberals FALL for those lies, hook, line and sinker! And BECAUSE they (as a whole) traditionally don’t have a traditional biblical background and/or “spiritual grounding”, they’re “easy pickins” for all the Devil’s LIES! And most of them don’t even REALIZE that they’ve been deceived! And THE BIGGEST lie Satan tells them is “There is no god – You are your own god!” And it’s apparent in most of the “Social Justice/Democratic legislation” that we see today.

Lets look at a prime example. A new and coming “Socialist Democrat” was quoted as saying they desired to tax the extremely rich at a 70% marginal tax rate! 70%! This is no joke, folks! And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that would just WRECK THE U.S. ECONOMY TO SHREDS! (Remember “Greece”, anyone? Where all the government employees made themselves some “nice” paychecks, while all the non-gov’t workers economically suffered?) 

Why? For one, if the extremely wealthy (who provide the BULK of most U.S. jobs) were taxed 7O PERCENT of their income, they’d rationally take their wealth & assets elsewhere, thus LEAVING the U.S.! This would TAKE AWAY millions if not TRILLIONS of U.S. jobs! And with massive employment then running rampant, people would then need to depend on the government. But because hardly NO-ONE would be working, the government wouldn’t even HAVE hardly any money to give (since, remember, government MAKES alot of its money off the TAXES of hard-working Americans?) since all the weathly people theorethically left, due to the EXTREMELY high taxes! And that is when the U.S. Country would turn into the next “Venezuela!”

(Disclaimer: If you’re Venezuelan and reading this right now, please don’t take offense at what I am saying. I am not attacking your country personally, I am only merely pointing out how Socialist Maduro has destroyed your country from within by all of his socialist policies. And HIS type of socialist policies are what OUR so-called upcoming version of him (as a whole) is now trying to do here in America – so hopefully you can understand where I’m coming from on this?) 

And not only THAT, but now, they want to sponsor what liberal Democrats are calling “The New Green Deal”. In other words, they want to BAN AIR TRAVEL and BAN FOSSIL FUELS – two things that are CRITICIAL to the U.S. infrastructure & U.S. Economy! And not JUST the U.S. Economy but the GLOBAL ECONOMY as well. And it’s all based on “fear of climate change”. But yet, why do MANY proponents of global warming fly their own private jets, etc.? A private jet certainly does more to the so-called “climate variation” than a “cow farting”, etc.  

Not to mention there’s also a couple of things called H.A.A.R.P and Project Bluebeam (which is “geo-engineered climate”). In other words, it’s a “false climate” that THEY (the elite) create, in order to get the results they want. It’s really not any different than China creating “fake moons”, “fake rain” and “fake suns”. In fact, there’s ALOT of things that are geo-engineered in today’s world and it’s not just limited to weather. Even our own FOOD SUPPLY is now being “geo-engineered”. Don’t believe me? Check it out:

SNICKERS BAR, GENETIC ENGINEERING CHEERIOS, GENETIC ENGINEERING

In my humble opinion, the drive for “climate change” is really about the leftists wanting to secretly destroy the U.S. and global economies for their own personal “socialist” gain. Eventually, I believe that that the leftists hope to have Socialism EVERYWHERE, ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE (not just here in the U.S.!)

But……in light of Revelation 13:15, the “drive” for world-wide Socialism makes PERFECT SENSE, considering that The Antichrist will  have ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants under a ONE WORLD ECONOMY! And so, the Antichrist can’t really do that with Capitalism, now, can He? That’s why he’ll very likely need a “Socialist-type framework” by which to get the ball rolling IN his One World Economy, One World Government and also One World Religion. Think about it, folks! 

Now, to be certain, the Isaiah 5:20 and Ephesians 6:12 END TIMES SPIRITUAL WARS are working both separately AND synonymously together. Now…….what do those bible passages say again? I’m glad you asked! They are both as follows:

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!” – Isaiah 5:20

“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” – Ephesians 6:12

Originally, it started out with what I call “The Ephesians 6:12 War”. In my opinion, it started between the year 2009-2012. And post 2012 is when I very first started noticing that what I call “The Isaiah 5:20 War” was starting to kick in, ON TOP OF the already existing “Ephesians 6:12 War“, yet, appearing to work synonymously with it. Ephesians 6:12 specifically talks about DEMONIC spirits, while Isaiah 5:20 is more or less talking about their “human backers” (which, in THIS case, is now THE DEMOCRATIC/*SOCIAL JUSTICE* PARTY!!!)

True, the Republican Party is not perfect and has its own lists of faults. But as far as aligning with the bible, the Republican Party is more closely aligned with the bible than the Democratic Party likely EVER will be! For WHAT political party is trying to keep God/the bible/prayer out of schools? The Democratic party! And what political party is trying to harrass children with gay/trans propaganda in the schools, even as young as 5 years old? Answer: The Democratic party! And WHAT political party is behind all those LGBT-ers who sued Christian businesses for not portaking somehow in their “gay weddings?” Once again, the Democratic party! 

But again, the Democratic Party keeps veering further and further LEFT! Now infanticide is becoming “the norm” within The Democratic Party – as a whole – and I personally think that’s what they (as a socialist progressive whole) secretly wanted all along! It’s like today’s times are starting to slowly morph into Nazi Germany ALL OVER AGAIN!

P.S: How IRONIC – that the so-called “movement” that CLAIMS it fights for HUMAN RIGHTS – i.e. *Social Justice* – does NOT stand up and fight for FULL-TERM ***HUMAN*** BABIES but yet, fights for the “rights” of unborn babies of EVERY OTHER SPECIES – i.e. insects/animals! 

When I was merely 18 years old (my senior year of High-School), I remember my Christian grandmum telling me that during the times of The End (or rather, “The End Times”), that there was gonna be ANOTHER “Holocaust” – of Christians and Jews! And I have to admit, I wasn’t well-versed on The Book of Revelation at that time, so I wasn’t really sure what to think back then.

Only NOW do I realize the truth and brevity of her words! She was essentially talking about Euthansia…AND abortion……all in one!!!!!!!!!!! And if I remember correctly, she said it would start out “small”…..baby steps…..and then, eventually, grow darker and darker over time, just as it did in Nazi Germany!!!!!! [Note: Her words are interesting in context of the “Revelation 13:15-type society!”] 

And one of THE MOST telling things about Nazi Germany is THIS: Nearly ALL the Jews (as a whole) NEVER thought it could or would happen to them………..and YET, IT DID!!!!! And I sort’ve see the same exact pattern playing out with many Christian Conservatives, as well! “Oh, that could NEVER happen to us…..ESPECIALLY in a Westernized nation”. Little do they know……..their “Holocaust Germany” is JUST AROUND THE CORNER! ARE they prepared! DO they have the TOTAL FAITH that if they were torchured and/or imprisoned tomorrow, they would be able to KEEP that faith in Christ, NO MATTER WHAT? My spiritual gut tells me that most Christians aren’t even 1/3 ready for what’s coming!!!!!!! Folks, it’s gonna get BAD……REALLY, REALLY BAD!!!!!

In fact, human babies and the elderly/terminally ill are just the slight “stepping stone”. What they REALLY, TRULY WANT (or rather, what Satan and his hordes and hordes of demons living INSIDE of the hearts, souls and minds of far-left Democrats want) is TOTAL ANNIHILATION OF **ALL THOSE** WHO DON’T AGREE WITH THEM!!!!! THAT is what’s coming, folks! (As per Revelation 13:15!) And so, if YOU are not prepared for what’s coming (spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and/or psychologically) – and what’s soon coming in today’s world – spiritual persection wise – is pretty darn UNIMAGINABLE, YOU will be SPIRITUALLY DESTROYED!!!!!!

And again, I don’t say this to SCARE YOU but to WARN YOU! In fact, just imagine if the Jews (upon VERY first being “persecuted”) had just left Germany and not stayed. The outcome of the “war” might’ve been totally different for them! But yet, most of them let their PRIDE get in the way of their decision-making! They said to themselves, within their hearts: We’re Jews! We’re God’s chosen people! Therefore, our enemies will NEVER, EVER be able to touch us!” Little did they know, they’d soon be forced off to concentration camps to be tochured to death, gassed, starved, or any other number of hellish things!

And unfortunately, I think that’s pretty much the same attitude with MANY Christians today! Oh, we’re Christians! We’re God’s chosen people/children of God! Therefore, our enemies – specifically enemy nations – will NEVER be able to touch us! Little do they know, Revelation 13:15 says that ALL whom refuse The Mark of the Beast SHALL BE KILLED! (And severe persecution, torchure and imprisonment is probably included in that “persecution package”, somehow).

The Jews thought (as a whole) that nothing could happen to them during WWII and yet, it did! The Christians of today (as a whole) now think that nothing’s gonna happen to THEM either, but they’re in for QUITE a rude awakening!

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” – [Revelation 13:15]

However, let me provide you with a bit of HOPE. Remember when Moses was leading the Israelites out of Egypt and they had no food with them at the time (having run out of their unleavened bread), so THE LORD PROVIDED THEM MANNA FROM HEAVEN? What makes you think for just ONE second that the good Lord’s gonna provide manna from heaven for the ancient Israelites in THEIR critical time of need, yet NOT provide some sort of “manna” for born-again Christians during the End Times in THEIR critical time of need (provided that they have the FAITH that God WILL provide and do NOT in any, way, shape or form take/accept The Mark of the Beast)?????? It stands to reason!

I leave you all with THESE passages:

“But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you” – 1 Peter 5:10

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit” – Luke 12:24-25

 

 

 

 

 

James 2:19 = Even the DEMONS *Believe & Tremble!*

James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble“.

The 2nd part of James 2:19 isn’t a passage that most Christians and/or church leaders talk about very often, if at all (or even do so much as think about). In fact, the VERY first time I read that passage at the tender age of 19-21, I was AWESTRUCK! The demons TREMBLE with FEAR at Jesus? F E A R? Why? I had thought at the time. Wouldn’t it make more technical sense for them to react to Jesus with ANGER, rather than FEAR?”

But let us look at two other bible passages in the bible which address this very issue!

Matthew 8:28-29 says: “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, ‘What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?‘”

The Matthew 8:29 passage, in my further attempt at fully understanding the “demons’ fear of Jesus” back then, really got me to start questioning everything I “thought” I knew at that point about Satan and demons! Like, I KNEW that Satan and demons were ANGRY things! But little did I know, as per that passage and the 1st passage I listed, that they were FEARFUL, angry things! WHY? Because they KNOW that Jesus has the POWER to eternally judge them! 

Luke 8:28 further echos the sentiment: “When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, ‘What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me NOT!'”

When I originally read the Luke 8:28 passage back then, I sort’ve had this “human” mental imagery in my mind of a demon (using the man’s human body as a vessel) kneeling down on his knees in front of Jesus, putting both his hands up in a “I surrender” position and DESPERATELY PLEADING with Jesus to NOT be tormented!

And it was THAT mental imagery in my mind which served as a VERY POWERFUL force of spiritual understanding within my spirit! For just like a human person might hold both their hands up in a “I surrender, I don’t want any trouble” position if there was a gunman who was threatening their VERY LIFE, so did THE DEMON likely do in the presence of Jesus! WOW! PROFOUND!

So therefore, what can we gather from these 3 passages in the bible? Answer: DEMONS **FEAR** JESUS! That’s right…..out-right **FEAR HIM!** So it stands to reason: If DEMONS fear Jesus, how much more does SATAN fear Jesus? Answer: Likely a whole HECK of alot! Why? Because he simply KNOWS that he’s powerless against Him, amongst many other things! Which then even further stands to reason: If SATAN and DEMONS actually **FEAR JESUS**, (despite any major “anger issues” they might have AGAINST Jesus), then why should WE, as born-again Christians/Messianic Jewish-roots Christians FEAR **THEM?** It stands to reason!

There’s yet another bible passage that I’d like to share, which is Matthew 10:28 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Verse 28] which states: “And fear NOT them which kill the body, but are NOT able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is ABLE to destroy BOTH soul and body in hell”.

In other words, don’t FEAR the spirits and/or the people that have the ability to “kill you” since they ONLY have “ability” to kill your BODY, ONLY but NOT your soul…..Instead, you should FEAR GOD/JESUS since ONLY GOD/JESUS has the power to “kill” both your BODY ***AND*** your soul in hell and/or the lake of fire! OUCH! Therefore, in hindsight, the Matthew 10:28 passage is telling us in NO uncertain terms whom/what we SHOULD and SHOULD **NOT** fear, in the “biblical sense!”

Too many Christians today FEAR! Rather it’s FEAR of “workplace issues”, FEAR of the future, etc. But what they oftentimes don’t realize (myself included, sometimes) is that SATAN AND DEMONS are the driving force BEHIND that “FEAR!” And as long as we don’t have any “idols” or “demonic objects” in our homes (ouija boards, tarot cards, New Age and/or metal music, carved images, witchcraft-themed movies, books, etc.), we have POWER & AUTHORITY in the name of Christ to REBUKE THAT DEMONIC SPIRIT/THOSE DEMONIC SPIRITS OF FEAR!

But yet, here’s the sad reality. As long as a “Christian” has demonic “objects” in their possession, OR consume them (such as movies and TV shows), Satan/demons have the LEGAL spiritual “right” to RULE OVER THEM (**UNTIL** said object is REMOVED or said consumption is FULLY REPENTED OF)! Sad but true! Many Christians today have demonic objects in their home and don’t even know it!

For example, many think that Harry Potter books or movies are “harmless!” And yet others at some point (myself included) attempted to “justify” their watching of “Witchcraft-themed shows” (like Salem for instance) telling themselves that they’re just spiritually educating themselves about the Enemy Satan, so they know how he “works” in the Kingdom of Darkness, etc.!

Folks, let me tell you something. I MYSELF made the mistake of watching some of the “Salem” TV series on Netflix (LONG BEFORE the Netflix BAN was needed on the part of many Christians!) And I even tried to justify it to myself, telling myself that it was somehow OK to watch the show, IF I was only doing it from a “get-myself-educated-on-the-schemes-and-workings-of-the-Devil” type of way!

But BOY WAS I MISTAKEN! Not long after I started watching the 1st episode, I had an “ungodly spirit” that invaded my home! A dark shadow! It oftentimes “slightly” shook the end of my bed at night while I was trying to sleep! It would follow me into the bathroom and would sometimes abruptly make the shower curtain rod fall on me whenever I tried to use the toilet or take a shower! It terrified my cat(s) at night and made them “growl” and “hiss” for absolutely no reason! I’d go out in the hallway and would see my cat(s) growling and hissing at “shadows that weren’t there!”

And at first, I’ll admit, I was in a bit of denial. I mean, you hear about invasion of demonic spirits in movies and on certain TV shows. But not ONCE as a Christian do you EVER think that it will come to YOUR house for something so small as watching a Witchcraft-themed TV show (even if only for “education of how the Enemy works” purposes!)

I honestly thought at the time that if the Lord Jesus KNEW MY heart and KNEW I wasn’t even “remotely” interested in Witchcraft, but that I only wanted to gain a better understanding of HOW the Enemy works, that I’d somehow be “OK” and that demonic spirits would NOT be allowed to enter into my home! But I was WRONG! After about a week or so of “the attacks” and attempting to rebuke the spirit in the name of Christ but getting no results, I asked it outloud one time during one of its “attacks”: “WHY DO YOU KEEP TORMENTING ME?”, and it hissed out (just like a snake) ONE word and one word ONLY: SALEM!”

And that’s when I knew it was the UNGODLY TV-show by that same name that was GIVING this “demonic spirit” the legal spiritual RIGHT to invade my home. And so then when I personally inquired to Jesus about WHY He had allowed this “dark, demonic spirit” to invade my home, and “attack me”, Jesus informed me that it was actually for my own benefit, so THAT I would learn the hard way the TOTAL SPIRITUAL DANGER that goes along with watching ANY type of program that has a “positive view” of Witchcraft in it! NO CHRISTIAN – MYSELF INCLUDED – SHOULD BE WATCHING **ANY** TYPE OF PROGRAM OR MOVIE LIKE THAT – **EVEN IF** IT’S ONLY TO “GET EDUCATED ON THE ENEMY!”

Thankfully, my experience eventually came to a “safe ending”. Once I realized just how SATANIC the show was, (and how it very likely portrayed ACTUAL SATANISM), I IMMEDIATELY stopped watching the Series, I prayed to Jesus for forgiveness, and vowed to never watch a single episode of THAT or any OTHER show LIKE that, EVER, EVER AGAIN! And just like that, the DEMONIC SPIRIT was GONE! No more “end of bed shaking” in the middle of the night, no more shower curtain rod violently falling on me in the bathroom, no more terrified growling & hissing cat(s) in the middle of the night, etc!

Now, I have to make an honest confession, here. Did I somewhat “fear” the “demonic spirit” that kept attacking me, while it was attacking me? At first, I did a little, yeah. Why? Because I didn’t know WHY it was there. I didn’t think at first that there was ANY reason FOR it to be there in my home! And see folks, that’s where ALOT of problems with our spiritual walk with Christ can come in…….when we DON’T have our “full spiritual thinking caps” on and in our “leisure time”: For THAT is the time when we are MOST vulnerable to falling victim to Satan’s devices and he KNOWS it!

Now, if “I”, a teacher of God’s Written Word, can fall that easily to something like that (telling myself that it was OK since I was ONLY watching it to gain more understanding of HOW the Enemy works against believers, etc.), how much easier would it be for a non-teacher of God’s Written Word to fall that easily for something like that? FOLKS, WE MUST REMAIN ON **FULL SPIRITUAL GUARD** AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!”** (And believe me, that goes just as much for ME as it does for anyone else who’s a believer in Jesus!)

But I tell ya, folks: Two of Satan’s MOST BIGGEST spiritual battlegrounds against born-again Christians today is at home/among non-believing family members and THE WORKPLACE! Because if you’re working at a workplace where hardly NOBODY is a bible-believing, bible-adhering Christian, it’s going to get harder & harder to adhere to Christ and his gospel as the years roll by in SUCH a “place!” SO HOLD FAST TO THE FAITH!

The non-believers (or rather, the demonic spirits residing INSIDE the hearts, souls and MINDS of unbelievers) are constantly “testing you”, constantly “sizing you up”, and/or “waiting for you to FAIL!” And this could be manifested in any NUMBER of ways……..They or a manager might attempt to micromanage you, they might try to get you to participate in the “latest gossip”, they might tempt you to work on the sabbath or give you more work than they know that you can do at any one given time and then criticize you when you fail, etc.  

So folks, BE CAREFUL! BE ON YOUR FULL SPIRITUAL GUARD AT ALL TIMES! I can’t emphasize that ENOUGH!!!!!!!! Especially since these “unsaved coworkers” don’t yet even KNOW that they’re being spiritually deceived by demons in all of those things! So pray for them, pray for them, pray for them and don’t ever STOP praying for them folks, MARK MY WORDS! And pray for yourselves as well, since we all know it’s very easy to be “swayed” by coworkers. 

But going back to my main point: Satan/Demons FEAR the name of Jesus! Therefore, why should WE, as as born-again Christians, fear THEM? It stands to reason! For WHEN we fear Satan and/or demons, we are, in all actuality, fearing beings that FEAR JESUS! Now think about that. Truly sit back and think about that for awhile. Let that thought ruminate for a bit in your mind. Because if we FEAR demonic beings that FEAR JESUS, what does that say about US as so-called “born-again believers?”

If there’s ever a time in our lives when we fear Satan, fear demons and/or fear persecution, we’re doing it wrong! That means that something is missing in our spiritual “walk” with Christ! Because NO Christian with the correct, FULL spiritual armour is going to fear the Devil or Demons! (Not for ANY reason!) Instead, they will laugh in Satan’s or the demon’s face whenever they “make threats” and loudly and boldly proclaim: “I rebuke you in the name of Christ, now GO!” without any problems or hesitations! In fact, they will KNOW that they know that Christ has their back, no matter what and they need NOT fear!

Are YOU at the place in your life right now where you have ZERO fear of Satan, demons and/or the future? If not, WHY? And if not, what sorts of steps must you take to NOT be afraid anymore, in the name of Jesus? What it help you to know that Jesus HIMSELF was afraid in the Garden of Gethsemane when he KNEW he’d be facing “human death” for the first time?

And yet, even IN SPITE OF HIS FEAR, he STILL trusted the Heavenly Father? If Jesus could still trust the Heavenly Father during HIS time of trial & tribulation (and FEAR) on the Earth, then so can WE also trust Jesus (who OVERCAME death & the grave) during OUR times of trials and tribulations on the Earth, right folks? IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

Isaiah 41:10 proclaims: “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 while John 16:33 states: “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“.

In other words, Jesus is telling us here that WHATEVER scary situation we might face in life (being fired from our jobs, a severe medical diagnosis, a death, a traumatic event, severe persecution, etc.), we do NOT need to worry since Jesus IS IN CONTROL OF IT ALL! He’s got the power of the UNIVERSE at his fingertips! He created the universe with just the mere sound of his VOICE!

Therefore, is He REALLY gonna create the universe with just the mere sound of his voice (“Let there be light”, etc.) and then scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR life’s “treacherous situations?” OFCOURSE NOT! Jesus KNOWS what he’s doing, no matter what, so we got to remember that, folks! Even though I know sometimes that’s easier said than done. I know it’s “hard” to trust Christ in times of SEVERE TURMOIL in our lives! I know many Christians have the “why me” type questions whenever something bad happens. Just like I KNOW how hard it is to believe that Jesus is CONSTANTLY working things out for the BEST for us that are believers in HIM!

But one thing I DO know is THIS: Jesus is faithful and TRUE! And not once has he EVER, EVER, **EVER** let me down! NOT ONCE! He has ALWAYS and FOREVER been there for me! It is ME that hasn’t always been there for HIM the way I should at various small points in my life! But thankfully for me and for ALL of us, he is a loving and JUST God, who FORGIVES US FOR ALL OUR SINS! We might as feel at times as though Jesus has forgotten about us on this “Earth rock” down here, but believe me, he hasn’t! It’s US who forget HIM!

We as Christians (as a whole) tend to sometimes get slightly “lukewarm” in our faith at certain times in our lives! When severe persecution bears us down and makes us feel exhausted and drained of energy, temporarily giving up seems like the most EASIEST  & most CONVENIENT thing to do! But folks, we can NOT give up! Not NOW! Not EVER! ESPECIALLY IN THESE HERE LAST DAYS OF HUMAN HISTORY! WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION, FOLKS! https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/11/we-are-the-last-generation-biblical-proof/

We are the last “100% human species” on this Earth! By the time our children grow up into their 20’s, true 100% humans will be a thing of the past and “cyborgs” will be THE NORM! Quite sobering to think about, isn’t it folks? Yet Jesus says we do NOT need to fear for the future, our salvation is certain (provided we still believe, trust AND obey him and do NOT take The Mark of the Beast for ANY circumstances!)

Jesus Christ HIMSELF tells us in Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. So lets unpack this a bit. First off, Jesus is telling us NOT to fear. And then the 2nd part is even more beautiful than the 1st part; Jesus is telling us that God DELIGHTS in rewarding us “eternal life” in his “eternal heavenly kingdom”. Therefore, if we DELIGHT in the Lord Jesus AND in obeying him, then someday, the Heavenly Father will DELIGHT in US! What a splendid thought, folks! 

Also: If you have FEAR in ANY area of your life and/or spiritual walk with Christ, WRITE IT DOWN! Then read a scripture in the bible about Jesus overcoming demons, etc. Then go back and read your list and ask yourself if your “fear” is justified! My guess is that it WON’T be, in your mind or heart! However, if you’re STILL unsure rather your “fear” is justified or not, PRAY TO JESUS ABOUT IT! (The most easiest, yet, most OVERLOOKED solution to ANY problem we might have today – PRAYER!) And whatever person, thing or object you fear, fill in the blank with said person, object or thing in the prayer down below!

Pray the following: “Jesus, I fear ________. I’m not sure WHY I fear ______ but I do. I’m not sure what to do about ________. But I know that you DO know what to do about _________ and my FEAR of it! So please Jesus, help me overcome my fear of __________. And make it to the point where someday soon, I will LAUGH at my initial fear of ________ and will fully realize that Satan is a LIAR! Please help me realize that my fear of ________ comes from a DEMONIC SPIRIT and that in YOUR heavenly name, I have authority OVER said “spirit”.

P.S.: Please also reveal to me if there’s any demonic objects in my car or home that are “allowing” the spirit of FEAR to “fester” in my life/home/workplace and help me to GET RID of those objects, if so! Please help give me the necessary tools to get RID of the SPIRIT of FEAR and have it leaving me/my home/my workplace IN NO TIME! Please instead REPLACE the spirit of FEAR in my life with YOUR Holy Spirit, THE SPIRIT OF FAITH AND OF TRUTH! I say this in your heavenly name, Jesus! Amen!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

China’s “Social Credit Score”: Coming To A Town Near YOU! (Mark of the Beast, Part FOUR)

Hello all! My last SEVERAL posts have had to do with The Mark of the Beast and/or Artificial Technology! And that’s because we’re ever SO MUCH CLOSER to when the Mark of the Beast and the new “Mark of the Beast SOCIETY” will be unveiled! In fact, it even sends chills up my spine to think about just HOW MUCH CLOSER we are to that time! I pray that myself and ALL OTHERS will be PREPARED for that time for it’ll come here IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE!

Now, for those of you who haven’t yet heard yet or are unaware, things over in China are now “heating up” for The Mark of the Beast “System!” They now have over there in China (I kid you NOT) what’s called a “Social Credit Score!”

Basically, this is not a FINANCIAL Credit Score but a “SOCIAL” Credit Score! Let me explain. The Communist Gov’t of China wants to know just how “loyal” to Communism/The Communist Gov’t that average, everyday Chinese citizens are. And their “Social Credit Score” is based on precisely HOW loyal the are to the Chinese Gov’t! (Folks, is that CREEPY or what!?)

Anyways, the more “loyal” a Chinese citizen is to the Chinese Gov’t/Communism, the more “higher” their “Social Credit Score” is and the more “rights” and “privileges” they have, such as the right to “fly/travel out of the country”, etc.! Can you BELIEVE it, folks? And ofcourse, the “less” loyal a Chinese citizen is “deemed” to be to the Chinese Gov’t/Communism (no wonder HOW well of a “citizen” that person has been up until THIS POINT), the LESS “rights” and “privileges” they have! (IT’S A TOTALLY DRACONIAN SOCIETY, FOLKS!)

What’s ALSO interesting to note about China is that China has now cracked down pretty hard lately on “Christians” and “Christian churches”. [But yet, Christianity is “exploding in secret numbers” in China right now! That’s WHY the Chinese Gov’t is so fearful of Christians/the sheer RISE of number in them!) And the “Social Credit Score” is just a FURTHER way by which to persecute, imprison and ostracize Chinese Christians living in China!

Here, Anita Fuentes of the End Times ministry called “Open Your Eyes People/EMOAF” [not MY ministry, just to specify] gives an EXCELLENT & INFORMATIVE “sermonette” on the matter (and also talks about what’s going on over in India – as it pertains to the Mark of the Beast – China’s next door neighbor, geographic-wise):

 

“ABC News Australia” ALSO did an excellent segment on the subject:

 

Some say that it’s not yet fully implemented, yet. However, all the staggering “signs” are there, already! They got the tech, they got the “know how”. They’ve probably even ALREADY have got all the “logistics algorithms” (i.e. A.I. computer programming) into place. The ONLY thing they’re waiting on (I imagine) is THE GREEN LIGHT! (The Green Light ofcourse being THE “Green Light” that THE ANTICHRIST gives them!)

Lets face it, folks. The elite of EVERY world country very likely ALREADY gots “The Mark of the Beast” System up and ready to go. Yet, they are ALL waiting on ONE thing – THE GREEN LIGHT BY THE ANTICHRIST! Because UNTIL that Green Light is given, they have NO POWER OR AUTHORITY to act before HIS “OK!” (And indirectly – ironically enough – by waiting on The “Antichrist’s” Green Light, they’re actually also indirectly waiting on God’s Green Light, as well!)

You see, the Antichrist can’t really do anything outside of Satan’s will just like Satan can’t do anything outside of God’s will! (Note: please read “The Book of Job” in the Old Testament for more information, if you want or need to get a much richer understanding of God’s power vs. Satan’s “limited power!”)

China (and India) are no doubt some of the leaders in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (and especially when it comes to *unleashing it* on their citizens!) China is a Communist country…….it probably started out as a Socialist country…….and then went right on over to Communism……And ironically enough, that’s honestly what many Democrats want to do to the country of America………turn it into a SOCIALIST COUNTRY! Forget personal property rights! Forget individual rights! The Gov’t would then own EVERYTHING! (Pretty scary to think about, isn’t it, folks!)

So why are we now talking about “Democrats” on a “religious God-fearing blog?” Because the Democrats (as a whole) want to turn this American country into China, into Cuba, into Venezuela! And with erosion of property rights and personal rights also go RELIGIOUS RIGHTS! But again, isn’t that what Mark of the Beast and Mark of the Beast SOCIETY is ALL ABOUT? The EROSION of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS and the TOTAL INCREASE BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS OF ALL **GOV’T RIGHTS?**

OFCOURSE all the Ocasio-Cortezs’ and Bernie Sanders’ of the Democrats want Socialism……..THEY are a part of the Gov’t, therefore, THEIR paycheck or individual and/or property rights won’t be affected! But OURS **will**, if Socialism ever truly takes root in this country of America! (That’s why it’s ever so important to VOTE REPUBLICAN on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at the U.S. Mid-term Elections! To make sure that RELIGIOUS LIBERTY REIGNS!)

But going back to the subject of the Antichrist and China’s “Social Credit Score”. Folks, other countries of the world already have THEIR VERSION OF IT! Do you honestly think that YOUR COUNTRY (be it whatever country of the world it might be, outside of China or India) is IMMUNE? HA! Your country (be it whatever country outside of China or India it might be) likely already has its OWN form of “logistic algorithms” (i.e. computer programming) in place! FACEBOOK no doubt plays a HUGE ROLE in all of this! FACEBOOK IS SO DEEPLY ENGRAVED IN A.I. THAT IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY!

And someday soon, my guess is that THOSE in China with a low “Social Credit Score” will NOT be able to access their “Facebook” or ANY FORM OF SOCIAL MEDIA! Welcome to “The New World”, folks! And believe me, what’s happening over in China right now is JUST THE VERY BEGINNING! Jesus is actually showing US, up close and personal, about what the “experience” of The Mark of the Beast society will BE LIKE, since like I’ve said in SEVERAL blog posts of most recently, The Mark of the Beast is JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

Many Christians are in denial today and think that “The Social Credit Score” can’t happen to THEM/their country! But they need to start thinking AGAIN! For what starts off in China WILL SOON SPREAD OUT TO OTHER COUNTRIES! The elite has just started putting everything out in the open and doesn’t even try to hide anything anymore! And the sad thing is that most people – specifically Christians – are STILL unaware!

Now, will ONE country’s version of “The Social Credit Score” be exactly the same as ANOTHER country’s version of it? Only time will tell. But the end results will be exactly the same, regardless: individual and religious rights will be taken away so that “Big Brother” (Gov’t) will GAIN all “rights” over the people!

But folks, we got to start preparing! Because actually LIVING in the “Mark of the Beast Society” will NOT be easy, not by a LONG-SHOT! In fact, it will likely be THE MOST DIFFICULT THING IN LIFE THAT YOU OR I HAVE EVER DONE IN THE ENTIRETY OF OUR  EXISTENCE! The PRESSURE to take the Mark of the Beast and/or to try to maintain a “good Social Credit Score” will be SO GREAT! The TEMPTATION will be SO VERY NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TEARS!

In fact, I can picture it NOW, even: Some Christians will be SO TEMPTED to take The Mark of the Beast for a “Good Social Credit Score” and to “get privileges” (such as traveling, buying and selling, etc.) that they’ll just break down and CRY! And then, when they and their children are not able to buy food and they just start “physically starving” (IF they start physically starving, that is), their body will likely become “sickly” and “malnourished”. And it is THEN that the temptation to take he Mark of the Beast will be  THE STRONGEST…….when the person is MOST PHYSICALLY WEAK!

But in fact, THAT will be the time of most “severe spiritual testing!” God wants to see if we’ll have the FAITH to endure till The End in his great, heavenly name, NO MATTER WHAT, while Satan wants to see if he can “make us crack” (i.e. create a permanent crack in the spiritual foundation that we’re supposed to have IN Christ!) Jesus ALSO wants to see if WE will have the faith that HE will provide in OUR critical time of need in the End Times!

Remember when the good Lord gave the Jewish people MANNA FROM HEAVEN during THEIR critical time of need out in the desert, a time of “severe spiritual testing?” What makes you think the good Lord will provide manna from heaven for THEM, during THEIR critical time of need, yet, totally abandon US in OUR critical time of need? Think about it, folks! The Lord NEVER CHANGES! He’s the same yesterday, tomorrow, forever! Therefore, if helped THEM during THEIR critical time of need by giving them food from heaven, the Lord will MOST CERTAINLY help his modern-day people in OUR time of need! HAVE FAITH! 

[In fact, in the following Luke 18:8 passage, Jesus “lamented” about rather or not he’d find “FAITH” on the Earth during the End Times and/or the time right before his 2nd arrival to Earth:I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?]

But folks, that’s what I mean when I say we’ve got to start preparing ourselves! We got to start fasting one day a week and start eating less, in order to prepare our bodies to “need less food”. Also as well: we must prepare ourselves SPIRITUALLY! For there will come a time, MARK MY WORDS, when ALL bibles will be BANNED, all Christian websites and churches (churches that “don’t comply with LGBT and Gov’t”, that is) will be SHUT DOWN, etc.

Do you HONESTLY think that what’s happening over in China can NOT happen here in the U.S. (or any other “Westernized country”, for that matter?) You best think again! It CAN happen and it WILL happen………..eventually! Why? Because the bible SAYS it’ll happen, that’s why!

Has the bible EVER been known to prophesy something that didn’t come true? Were ANY of the Messianic prophecies talked about in the Old Testament unfulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament? Even just ONE? The answer is a resounding NO! There’s also many people who don’t believe in Jesus, despite the fact that Jesus has been PROVEN to be an actual historical person by both non-Christian AND Christian historical accounts! [NOTE: For all you skeptics out there, please read the book entitled “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised of all the actual evidence for Jesus out there – even “secular evidence”].

But going back to both of the “segments” talking about the “Social Credit Score”. Both commentators have noted several things about it:

  • A “good score” = “rights” and “privileges”
  • A “bad score” = “rights” and “privileges” taken away
  • A “bad score” = PUNISHMENT
  • A “good score” = SACRIFICE/EROSION OF INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS IN ORDER TO “GET” A GOOD SCORE
  • Your “score” is determined by several PERSONAL factors (the way you walk on a public street, your eating/shopping habits, your social media behavior, minor traffic infractions, etc.)
  • Your “score” is determined by how much of a “puppet” for the Gov’t at large that you’re willing to be
  • The more “sacrifices” you make for the Gov’t at large, the better your “score” is
  • ONLY Conservatives/Christians get a “bad score”
  • Your “freedom” under the Social Credit System is a FALSE FREEDOM
  • Under the “Social Credit Score” system, you’re CONSTANTLY BEING MONITORED (even IF you have a “good Social credit score”

Sounds like a “paradise utopia”, doesn’t it, folks? You give up all your rights and religious freedoms to gain a “false freedom”, only to later realize that the Gov’t at large never cared about your “religious freedom” or about YOU at all? But by the time you realize it, it’s already too late! My, my, that just sounds like “paradise”, doesn’t it, folks? {Note: Please note my sarcasm, there!}

But yet, my question is THIS: Just how much closer ARE WE to getting our OWN version of The “Social Credit Score” here in America? What, you think that JUST BECAUSE Donald J. Trump’s president here, that that sort of thing can’t happen over here in America? You are sadly mistaken! Sure, Trump can somewhat try to “delay” the elite’s ungodly agenda, but he can’t ultimately thwart it! For the bible says that the Antichrist WILL succeed in his ungodly agenda towards all mankind! Even if he must take it by force! 

But again, just WHAT would the “Social Credit Score” look like in America? Here are some possible scenarios (provided it was anything similar to China’s version):

  • You would be judged/scored on what sorts of products you bought or didn’t buy on Amazon
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you owned (and used) an Amazon Alexa
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you had (and/or used) a Facebook or other form of social media
  • You would be judged/scored on the types of things you said (or didn’t say) on Facebook or other forms of social media
  • You would be judged/scored on just how “loyal” to the American Gov’t you were
  • All Conservatives/Christians would likely be given a “Bad Score” and deemed some sort of “threat” to the Gov’t
  • You would be judged/scored on rather or not you went with “the liberal narrative” or not
  • You would be CONSTANTLY MONITORED EVERY SINGLE PLACE YOU GO – RATHER AT HOME, WORK OR BEYOND (no matter WHAT your score was, but EVEN more so if you had a “Bad Score!”) 
  • ETC. 

And folks, that might not seem “too bad” NOW……..but once the FULL REALITY of that all set in, I think alot of folks would find it rather DRACONIAN! But again, it all goes back to preparedness. Just how PREPARED are you to deal with a system like THAT? 

Here is a short checklist:

  1. If the Mark of the Beast and/or Social Credit Score happened TOMORROW, would I be prepared to deal with it? Why or why not? 
  2. If I wouldn’t be prepared for it, what steps must I take to ENSURE that I’ll be prepared for it, when the times comes?
  3. Am I ready and willing to give my VERY LIFE for Christ (i.e. be tortured, imprisoned and/or murdered for my faith in Christ) if it called for it? If not, why?
  4. If I were to die today, would I know for 100% certain that I’d go to heaven to be with Jesus? If not, why?
  5. If the Mark of the Beast/Social Credit Score thing were to happen tomorrow, is my body physically trained to deal with starvation/very little food if need be? If not, then what steps do I need to take to ensure that it is?
  6. Am I spiritually AND physically ready to “endure till the End” like Jesus commanded all his followers to do? Do I have the TOTAL FAITH OF ENDURANCE IN CHRIST? If not, what MUST I do to get physically and spiritually ready to endure “till the End of human history” and/or until I die in this life (whichever comes first?) 
  7. Do I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, soul, mind and spirit; with everything that is within me? Do I obey the commandments of God – Old AND New Testaments (i.e. 7th Day Saturday biblical sabbath, biblical holidays, biblical commands) instead of the commandments of man (i.e. Pagan Sabbath, Pagan holidays, “once saved, always saved”, etc.?) If not, WHY? And what must I do in order to change this? 

Though many will no doubt look at China’s “Social Credit Score” system as “no big deal”, it IS a big deal, it’s a VERY BIG DEAL! Why? BECAUSE IT HAS LONG-TERM BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS AND IMPACT, THAT’S WHY

If you’ve not done much research into China’s Social Credit Score, I hope you soon will. Because it is DEFINITELY one of “The Mark of the Beast PRE-CURSORS/Foreshadowing!” And trust me, it’ll ONLY be a better of time before “The Social Credit Score” comes……….TO A TOWN NEAR YOU!

HE IS RISEN!!! :-)

The whole entire CORE of Christianity rests on rather or not Jesus rose from the dead! Well, SEVERAL sources (both Christian and non-Christian) say he DID:

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

**SEVERAL Eyewitness Accounts**

  1. Mary Magdalene saw Him on the morning following the Sabbath (John 20:14-18, Mark 16:19).

  2. The other Mary (mother of Jesus?) – along with Mary Magdalene – ALSO saw him (Matthew 28:9-10).

  3. He appeared to Peter (1 Corinthians 15:5).

  4. He revealed Himself to His brother James (1 Corinthians 15:7).

  5. Two disciples on the road saw Him in the afternoon (Luke 24:13-40, Mark 16:12-13).

  6. In the evening, He came to the eleven remaining disciples (minus Thomas) as they met in the Upper Room (John 20:19-23, Mark 16:14, Luke 24:36-49).

  7. He appeared in Galilee to a gathering of more than five hundred followers (1 Corinthians 15:6).

  8. He came again to the Eleven eight days later + Thomas (making it 12) —that is, eight days later (John 20:26-31).

  9. After His disciples returned to Galilee, seven of them met Him on the shore of the sea (John 21:1-22).

  10. ETC.

And think about it, folks….Specifically #7! A delusion is something that ONE person usually sees. So just how common would it be for 500 people ALL AT ONCE to see a “delusion?” Answer: It wouldn’t be, so that’s how we know that what those 500 people saw was AUTHENTIC and REAL!

Plus….not to mention…..ALL of Jesus’s disciples (minus Judas Iscariot, who ofcourse committed suicide) + Matthias died a death of MARTYRDOM! So why would a large group of people WILLINGLY suffer persecution, torchure, imprisonment and/or DEATH for a LIE? Answer: They wouldn’t, therefore they CLEARLY believed and personally WITNESSED Jesus BEING the Son of God & also being risen from the dead! EVEN NON-CHRISTIAN SOURCES CONFIRM THIS FACT!

Plus here are a few more additional sources which document Jesus’s existence in general (outside of the bible).

6). “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel (the actual BOOK…….Note: this came BEFORE the movie of the same name!!!!)

the case for christ.jpg

7). The actual MOVIE called “Case for Christ” 

8). And not only that, but there’s always something called “THE EMBARRASSMENT FACTOR”. For back in ancient, biblical times, the “testimony” of a woman was considered “weak”, “unimportant” and “not believable”.

On the other hand, one of the Lord’s 10 commandments was NOT to lie or “bear false witness”. And so, the believing Christian male disciples around Jesus’s time considered honesty to be SUCH an important virtue to uphold, that they were willing to “risk reputation/embarrassment”, even if it meant they had to RECORD in written testimony the (gasp!) “eyewitness account testimony of A WOMAN/WOMEN, as it pertained to Jesus’s resurrection”. 

And back in ancient, biblical times, there was NOT too many historical documents floating around. So to have THAT much non-Christian evidence of Jesus’s death & resurrection is pretty compelling!

[But again, I have SEEN Jesus Christ personally during an N.D.E., so I HAVE no reason not to believe!] However, in John 20:29, Jesus states the following:

“Jesus saith unto him, ‘Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed”. 

Translation? Though I have seen during an N.D.E. (as many others have as well), particularly BLESSED are those who have NOT personally seen Jesus in an N.D.E. or dream/vision, and yet, BELIEVE! 😉 

The brutal reality is that it takes FAR MORE FAITH to believe that Jesus’s crucifixion or resurrection DIDN’T happen, than to believe IT DID! 😉 

As you read this and mull over all the evidence, I hope that the Spirit of Truth (The Holy Spirit) will kindly & boldly minister to you and teach you all the Lord’s truths that you’ve been missing, up to this point! And May the Lord Jesus Bless You & Keep You For All Eternity! Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

THE *CANCER* OF LUKEWARM/LIBERAL CHRISTIANITY: MASSIVE & GROWING…..

I’ve noticed here in the year 2018 that there seems to be a great divide in “the church” today about what should or should NOT be acceptable in “the church” today. Not to mention that there also seems to be a great divide concerning exactly what IS “the church” to begin with. Therefore, let us turn to the bible to find the answer!

The Greek word for church is called “ecclesia”. It means a called out company or assembly. Wherever it is used in the Bible though, it refers to people, not a building! The following are biblical examples of the “ecclesia” talked about in the New Testament. And there are THREE different types. There’s local assemblies, an individual believer, and the grouping of universal believers in Christ. Down below are all the biblical examples of each:

LOCAL ASSEMBLY:

  • Acts 7:37
  • 1 Corinthians 1:2
  • 2 Corinthians 1:1

INDIVIDUAL BELIEVER:

  • 1 Corinthians 15:9
  • Galatians 1:13

UNIVERSAL BELIEVERS:

  • Ephesians 5: 23-27
  • Ephesians 5:30
  • Matthew 16:18 [“And upon this rock I will build my church” simply means upon the foundation of Peter’s FAITH!]

So now that we’re squared away as far as what “the church” IS….biblically speaking, I’d now like to move on to my next point. Today’s culture of Lukewarm/Liberal Christianity. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? Let me give some examples.

  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in gay rights”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s not a sin to be actively gay”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe in abortion”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe that the incorporation of the New Age INTO the church is a “good thing”
  • “I’m a Christian but I see nothing wrong with transgenderism”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think it’s OK to party and/or get drunk every weekend”
  • “I’m a Christian but I think everyone goes to heaven when they die”
  • “I’m a Christian but I believe it’s OK to do X, Y, Z” (things that are “condemned” in the bible)
  • ETC.

Now…….what is the common word there? “But”. Now what are the FOUR common words that follow those statements? “I”, “Believe”, “See”, and “Think”. Now what do those four common words have in common? Answer: They’re attached to EMOTIONS and they’re actions based off a person’s THOUGHTS & FEELINGS! In other words, they’re taking what they FEEL to be morally right, instead of taking what the bible/Jesus AUTHORITATIVELY DECLARES is morally right!

In other words, many Christians today create this “false Jesus” that they’re comfortable with. “Well, MY Jesus would never condemn people to hell”, says liberal/lukewarm Christianity. No? Well, in that case, what did THAT form of “Jesus” die for, then? Cause “that” Jesus can’t save you! If, for example, active gay sex, etc. wasn’t a sin (according to the “liberal” Christian viewpoint), then what IS? WHO gets to determine what is “sin” and what is “not”, in THAT type of watered down gospel scenario? Does morality then become subjective?

WHO then gets to decide what is sin and what isn’t and how the rules will be enforced for transgressing that “sin?” If morality is “subjective”, then that would mean there’s NO morality and that “anything goes”. Which would then FALSELY suggest that Jesus Christ died on the cross for “nothing”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Many Christian folks have been blinded and bamboozled by Satan, Satan’s demons and the liberal LEFT into thinking they have no right to “rebuke sin”, they have no right to “preach the gospel”, they have no right to “call out false institutions/theology” and also have no right to believe/publicly say that what JESUS calls sin isn’t sin, etc. and it’s really, really sad!

Truth be told, the bible says Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. Therefore, Satan knows he must get in AS MUCH spiritual destruction as possible before his dreadful prophesied ‘END’ comes! So how does he do that, exactly? By COUNTERFEITING and/or watering down the bible and what’s written IN the bible. Let me elaborate. Men and women were created in the image of God, made for natural, traditional marriage (and natural procreation, as well). Therefore, Satan came up with “gay marriage” and “erosion of gender” movements, and “abortion”, etc.

Therefore, when liberal/lukewarm Christians align themselves with those bible-defying, Jesus-defying “agendas”, it’s like a personal spiritual slap in Jesus’s face! Because a man (or woman) can’t serve two masters. Either he will love the one or hate the other or hate the other and love the one.

In other words, a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-abortion viewpoints. A person can’t have Jesus AND pro-“gay marriage” viewpoints. Just like a person can’t have Jesus AND pro-transgender viewpoints. If a person WANTS to have pro-transgender, pro-abortion, and pro-gay marriage viewpoints, they can have those viewpoints all they want to. But they MUST take Jesus Christ OUT of it, cause Jesus Christ wants absolutely nothing to do with those ungodly things!!!!!!  

Folks, truth be told, we will ALL (even ME) stand before the mighty judgement seat of Jesus Christ, someday. And the last thing a “Christian” person would EVER truly want Jesus asking them is WHY they approved of such “unbiblical practices/concepts” while they were still living on the Earth or WHY they didn’t speak out AGAINST “the liberal Christian church’s” approval of such unbiblical practices while they were still living on the Earth, while they still had time!

Many preachers today preach these “feel good” messages. And while it’s good to occasionally build Christians UP and give them some spiritual hope and confidence in themselves, it’s NEVER a good thing to neglect the message of Repentance and Salvation altogether for the sake of “itching ears” and “making everyone happy”.

Sometimes a preacher has to preach it to the people RAW. Why? Because that’s the ONLY way they’re gonna TRULY get the message. Just imagine if Jesus, upon first seeing the money-changers in the Jewish temple, had GENTLY and SOFTLY said that they weren’t supposed to be doing that. The people in the temple probably would’ve laughed at him and the like. However, when He made whips from cords and YELLED at them before/while overthrowing the money changers tables, they immediately KNEW the seriousness of what He was saying!

Therefore, if one TRULY wants to align themselves with what is BIBLICAL and DO AWAY WITH what is NOT biblical (as a Christian who’s seeking to live the way Jesus would have them live, and NOT the way the “world”/secular culture would have them live), keep reading:

NON-BIBLICAL PRACTICES THAT THE WORLD/SECULAR CULTURE TRIES TO TOUT AS  ‘OK’ OR “OK TO DO” THAT THE “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE – SPECIFICALLY HERE IN “SECULAR AMERICA”) HAS NOW SEEMED TO EMBRACE IN 2018:

  • Lying
  • Envying
  • Cussing
  • Cheating
  • Saying the Lord’s Name in Vain
  • Stealing (stealing credit for someone else’s work, etc.)
  • Seeking Revenge/Getting Even
  • Getting Angry With Others When Provoked
  • Getting An Abortion/Being “Pro-Choice”
  • Being in an Active Homosexual Relationship
  • Fighting for Gay/Trans Rights
  • The Erosion of Gender
  • Gluttony
  • Greed
  • Mocking Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Having Sex Outside of Marriage
  • Gossip
  • Treating Santa Claus & The Easter bunny as though they’re a “god” of sorts
  • Chasing after $$$$$$$$$$ and material things
  • Getting “spiritual enlightenment” in things/people other than Jesus Christ (yoga, etc.)
  • Worshiping celebrities/famous people
  • ETC.

Ok, now that we’ve got a clear handle on what’s NOT biblical to do, I’ll now list practices that ARE biblical to do: 

  • Being honest (even if it’s hard)
  • Being happy for others’ successes and NOT envying what belongs to others
  • Controlling one’s language & NOT cussing
  • PRAISING the name of the Lord Jesus, instead of saying His name in vain
  • Not stealing someone else’s work credit/etc.
  • Forgiving others
  • Remaining calm with others when provoked
  • Not getting an abortion (being Pro-Life)
  • Not participating in any form of “Sodomy” and/or “Sodmomous relationship”
  • Not fighting for Trans/LGBT rights but rather speaking out about the TRUE psychological damage that “Pro-Transgender/LGBT policy” is doing to people today, spiritually and otherwise!
  • Fighting for the hetero-normative definition of gender (“male” and “female”)
  • Not over-eating; eating only what is necessary
  • Not being consumed by greed but rather, praying for and focusing on others
  • Preaching Jesus Christ/The Gospel/The Bible
  • Saving oneself for marriage
  • Not getting excessively drunk with alcohol or “getting high”
  • Trying your best not to “gossip” about others
  • Keeping one’s body pure & untainted, for the bible says our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit
  • Celebrating the BIBLICAL holidays that Jesus & his disciples celebrated (Passover, Tabernacles, etc)
  • Worshiping on the TRUE, 7th-day, blessed & sanctified by the Lord Sabbath (Saturday)
  • Chasing after righteousness/the Lord’s approval, instead of man’s approval
  • Receiving spiritual enlightenment in Jesus and Jesus, ONLY!
  • Speaking OUT against idols/worshiping of “celebrities”
  • ETC.

I felt compelled to write this after seeing a “slew” of stories about people who identify themselves as “Christian”, yet, approve/partake in viewpoints/behaviors that are the EXACT OPPOSITE of what TRUE, biblical morality is, in the name of Jesus! And thus, those poor “deceived folks” are CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ! 

Isaiah 5:20-21 puts it THIS way:

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! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 

Isaiah further goes on to say (verses 22-25): “Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still” 

Translation? Jesus’s mighty anger is KINDLED (that means, RAGING) against those people who call themselves “Christian”, yet, turn HIS heavenly law & decrees ASIDE for the sake of THEIR personal, emotional/physical “convenience(s)”.

Why? Because they were originally armed with the truth, they KNEW better! Whereas, a totally unsaved person likely did NOT! In other words, Jesus naturally expects unsaved people to “act” like they’re unsaved. However…..He does NOT expect Christian people who identify AS Christian to “act” as though they’re unsaved/act like “the world” (if that makes any sense?)

two jesuses, eight TWO JESUSES, THREE TWO JESUSESS, SIGN 

And last but not least: If the “liberal/lukewarm church” (as a whole) had been around during Jesus’s time on Earth, this illustration is probably what it would look like:

TWO JESUSES, SIX

[Okay, first of all, my apologies to anyone who can’t eat gluten or that’s a vegan. Please know that I’m not personally attacking you in any way, shape or form….I’m only merely using the above illustration as an example of what TODAY’S liberal/lukewarm Christianity might’ve looked like back in ancient, biblical times!]

In other words, the “liberal”/lukewarm church – as a whole – (& unsaved folks) has to constantly find something wrong with God’s law and/or God’s Spiritual Provisions for his people……..to see them as “outdated” and “archaic”. Why? Because it’s the only way they can think of to work around it. Because they want to worship Jesus in their own “liberal”/lukewarm way. Why? So they can do whatever they want

Only, they’re not totally realizing that IN doing/focusing on whatever they want, instead of what Jesus Christ wants for them and their lives, and in worshiping Jesus in the way they want to worship him, instead of worshiping Jesus the way HE wants to be worshiped, they are instead doing what SATAN wants, and IN so doing, are actually DEFYING Jesus Christ by the WAY that they LIVE! (“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – Romans 6:23).

Calling oneself a “Christian” and/or a “child of God” does NOT automatically make one Christian and/or a child of God! (Atleast in Jesus’s eyes, anyways!) For it is ONLY true, joyful obedience to Christ and his heavenly laws, trust & belief in Christ, being spiritually born again IN Christ, and REPENTANCE of sins that makes one a “Christian” and/or “child of God!”

BUT OF GOD

Translation? Only those who are BORN AGAIN in the SPIRIT and RECEIVE HIM (that means, to FULLY SURRENDER THEIR ENTIRE LIVES TO HIM) does HE give the “right” to become a “Christian” and “child of God!”

There’s SO many people out there today who think that ALL humans are “God’s children” or “children of God” but folks, that’s just NOT the case! For ONLY a select “few” are ABLE to get this spiritual distinction. How? By OBEDIENCE to Christ! And obedience to Christ does NOT mean skirting God’s law……not in ANY way, shape or form!

[[[[But again, it isn’t just a spiritually lethargic attitude towards God’s laws that Christians have (a whole) but believe it or not, now even some of the Jews themselves are starting (as a whole) to go liberal/lukewarm, as these two articles illustrate: (which only FURTHER PROVES THAT WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS, FOLKS!)

http://mentalfloss.com/article/91594/theres-wire-above-manhattan-youve-probably-never-noticed and https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-landmark-ruling-high-court-says-tel-aviv-mini-markets-can-open-on-sabbath/]]]]

Therefore, if YOU want the “RIGHT” to be called a “child of God”, then YOU must be born again in the spirit and YOU must fully surrender to Christ and obey Him, IN FULL! Not 3/4th obey him, not PARTIALLY obey him but 100% FULLY OBEY HIM in ALL that you do in this life! And to fully OBEY him means to OBEY HIS LAWS & DECREES!

Love Jesus with all your heart, soul, mind and strength! Give to those in need! Place others’ needs before your own needs! Cause remember: there’s LOTS and LOTS of lost souls out there! THEY should be your primary focus! Remember what YOU and YOUR life was like before YOU were fully saved in the name of Jesus! Imagine what would’ve happened in your life if you had died without Jesus……..imagine what would’ve happened if YOU did not have a Christian believer who prayed for you and preached to you about Jesus…..Imagine where you would be today if YOU had NOT had someone intercede for you on Jesus’s behalf! (Pretty scary and sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks?) 

Many folks think his law stopped at the 10 commandments! However, during the Sermon on the Mount, He EXPOUNDED on the 10 commandments, as well as talked about their original INTENT! (Wow! That’s just mind-blowing, isn’t it, folks!?)

And not only that but commands were added in OTHER places of the bible as well, such as Matthew 28, where Jesus tells his followers to “make disciples of ALL nations”, etc. And in the Old Testament, there were several dietary laws and “biblical holidays” that STILL APPLIED to Jesus and his disciples during the times of the New Testament, as well as to us Christians, TODAY! 

How we do know that? Simple. DURING the Sermon on the Mount (which is considered some of Jesus’s MOST important commandments in the bible), he said in Matthew 5:17-18Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled

 

In other words, ALL won’t be fulfilled till the VERY END of Revelation, chapter 22! Therefore, UNTIL the very end of Revelation, chapter 22, THE OT (Old Testament) LAWS & CELEBRATIONS/HOLIDAYS (minus animal sacrifice, for Jesus Christ BECAME the sacrificial lamb for MANY) STILL APPLY!

And guess what, folks? Did you know that the biblical feasts will STILL APPLY even during the Times of the New Millennial (specifically, the Feast of Tabernacles?) Alot of Christians don’t know that today because “the church today” (as we know it) hasn’t TOLD them the truth! It’s not their fault, entirely. Many were born and raised in “the church”. But what’s sad is that pastors are not preaching the COMPLETE truth to their congregations (as a whole). I used to be one of those Christians that NEVER questioned a pastor’s word for it, that NEVER questioned the history of Christianity, etc. 

But now that I DO know about these things, I feel like it’s my job to shout it from the rooftops (in a metaphorical and spiritual sense) about THE TRUTH about the Roman Catholic Church, Protestantism (“Refined Catholicism”) and the global deception going around today called “LIBERAL/LUKEWARM CHRISTIANITY”….The type of Christianity that does away with God’s law, creates “new traditions” that weren’t OF the bible originally and would seem totally FOREIGN to Jesus and his disciples and/or ancient followers and says “anything goes”.

Well, let me ask you something: IF the perpetual theology/practice of lukewarm/liberal Christianity was enough to cause a person to be sent to HELL and/or THE LAKE OF FIRE someday (that is, if they NEVER fully repented of such lukewarmness before death, etc.), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that those poor folks should be HIGHLY WARNED of their sinful thinking/behavior WAY BEFOREHAND so that they (hopefully) have plenty of time to REPENT (to give up and STOP doing the behaviors that are DISPLEASING to Jesus/God?)

Sadly, this whole entire “Liberal Christian Movement” got started by the Gay Movement, who wanted Christians to FEEL BAD or ASHAMED about their “Christian morality” (i.e. the bible’s view that it’s a sin to be actively gay, etc.) Therefore, they shamed many Christians AWAY from the hard-line authority of the bible with the words “homophobic” and “born this way”. And the Gay Movement has MANY, MANY, MANY Christian people (and even non-Christian people) deceived BECAUSE of it!

And Folks, there is NO “gay gene”. Never has been and never will be. Why do you think that is? Answer: Because they were NOT “born that way”. God doesn’t create “gay people”, only society and social environment/upbringing produces “gay people”. One day, I believe it (the so-called “gay gene) will be “faked” by secular science (but that’s a whole different story!) Back in 1969, the DSM-II listed homosexuality as a “mental disorder”. Only by SEVERE pressure from the left did the DSM folks “change their tune”. Please keep in mind that “transgenderism” is STILL considered a “mental disorder” (under the term “gender dysphoria”). 

It also doesn’t help that many of today’s “liberal Christians” ARE celebrities/famous people. Because lets face it, many Christian “lay people” at large look UP to these folks. And so, if THEY (Christian “celebrities – as a whole) have a “liberal” Christian theology, then it’s going to make many OTHER Christian people out there also have a “liberal” Christian theology…….instead of being likened onto a Berean Christian who’s searching the scriptures DAILY, to see “rather or not these things are so”.

But in fact, sadly, many of these Christian celebrities (as a whole), are very likely DECEIVED by Satan and his demons and I oftentimes pray that Satan will lose his grip on them! (Money & fame can easily turn into two powerful spiritual deceptors and even many non-Christian celebrities fall victim to its trappings!)

As a whole, many liberal Christian celebrities out there today (as a whole) seem to think they can have their cake and eat it, too (spiritually speaking). But in fact, just like I said above, no man (or woman, for that matter) can serve two masters, cause either he will hate the one and love the other or love the other and hate the one.

But let me take this a step further. Are some of these folks even “Christian” to begin with, if they publicly do things that go completely AGAINST the bible? By doing so, they are no doubt CAUSING CONFUSION among the body of Christ and are causing many Christians to fall! And we KNOW from the bible that Jesus Christ is NOT a God of confusion, folks! He is a CONSISTENT God! HE does not change, NOR do his LAWS change! He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore! 

Sadly, some of these folks are even PURPOSELY branding themselves “Christian” and then, subtly doing things that actually go AGAINST the bible in order to DECEIVE CHRISTIANS! My soul is VERY, VERY GRIEVED OVER THIS!!!!! Because not only have THEY been deceived by Satan and his demons, but they in turn are ALSO deceiving others. Is there NO END to all this “liberal Christian deception!?” ;-( 

I KNOW firsthand what the Wrath of Jesus is like! Just like I KNOW firsthand what it will likely BE like for all those folks someday that THINK or THOUGHT they were “right” with Jesus during their Earthly lives, only to discover at the very, very last terrifying moment that they were NEVER, EVER “right” with Jesus, ALL ALONG! OUCH! Therefore, that’s the VERY THING I’m trying to prevent with this very here POST (& EVEN THIS WHOLE ENTIRE BLOG, EVEN!) I love each and every single one of you and want ALL of you to be ETERNALLY saved in the name of Jesus! 

In closing, I just want to say this: IT’S NOT THE WILL OF GOD IF IT GOES AGAINST THE (WRITTEN) WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE)/ AND/OR THE WORD OF GOD (JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF!)“. Even I myself find myself somewhat convicted on that one. For example, I had briefly *almost* considered dating a non-Christian most recently.  (Notice the key word here is *almost!*).

So what stopped me dead in my (spiritual) tracks? (Jesus? The Holy Spirit?) asked me the following fateful questions: “Do you remember how the ancient Israelites complained out in the desert, after being delivered from Egypt by my mighty hand? Do you remember how they complained because they didn’t fully TRUST me or have 100% unfaltered faith IN Me? Well…..when YOU withstand MY biblical principles to please another that doesn’t EVEN adhere to me, you’ve now become likened onto a complaining Israelite out in the desert, in my eyes. This is your desert. This is your time of testing. Ah….you didn’t even REALIZE you were being tested, did you? Well, now you do. YOU are being spiritually tested and I pray that now that you KNOW this, that YOU will now be equipped to pass the test. Don’t ever, ever, EVER withstand BIBLICAL principles for a non-Christian, it will end up VERY BADLY!”

But if I HAD gone through with it (dating a non-Christian)? I would’ve been likened onto a “liberal” Christian of the viewpoint of “I’m a Christian BUT I think it’s OK to date a non-Christian”. See how Satan wants to feed off of our weaknesses…….? By putting certain types of “thoughts” into our minds like: “Isn’t that a non-Christian thing to do? To discriminate against someone who isn’t a Christian?” (when it comes to dating). See how the devil rolls, folks? He tries to turn our very own righteousness AGAINST US! “Isn’t that HATEFUL to NOT be accepting of LGBT/Womens’ Reproductive rights?” 

And yes, on the surface, it might not “seem” very “Christian-like” for a Christian to not date a non-Christian. But ya know what, folks? In the end, you’ll be VERY, VERY GLAD that you listened to Jesus, and NOT to the “spiritual voice” of someone who’s NOT Jesus! Why? Because the bible says that we are NOT to be unevenly yoked!!!!!! (Therefore, listen to JESUS, and NOT to fellow man! TRUST ME ON THIS!!!)

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”

– 2 Cortinthians 6:14-17 KJV

But folks, we GOT to remember something, here. WHEN a person speaks AGAINST the written word of God (the bible), (ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE “CHRISTIAN”), they are NOT speaking for Christ but speaking for Satan! That person, IN that moment, is temporarily possessed by Satan and/or a demon! So if you AGREE with the person OR give in to them, you are giving in to SATAN/a demon! That’s a pretty scary, sobering thought, isn’t it, folks?

Therefore, WE MUST BE ON SPIRITUAL GUARD AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!** Don’t ever, ever, EVER let your spiritual guard down or take any “counsel” from someone who is not a Christian or is a liberal/lukewarm Christian, PERIOD! Because the ONLY thing the spirit inside that person wants is YOUR spiritual destruction, so remember that, folks! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are You A Christian? If So, You’re On Trial!

“Christians” are sure getting a bad rep these days! It would rather seem as though (according to popular culture) that Christians are all old, outdated, boring, dull, “bigots” who just can’t seem to do ANYTHING right!

But behind the scenes looms a MUCH bigger picture, Christians, and that’s THIS: We’re ALL “On Trial!” Now…..what exactly do I mean by that, you might ask? The bible says that ALL those who TRULY wish to follow Christ WILL BE TESTED/PUT TO THE TEST! (Which puts a WHOLE new meaning to the popular saying,”Trial by Fire!”). 

So essentially, it’s like being in a spiritual courtroom of sorts. The non-Christian believer wants to TEST US and to try to see just how much of a TRUE Christian we actually are! They – along with Satan & his demons – are acting as impromptu “spiritual prosecutors” against us. And oddly enough, the MORE of a true Christian we are/prove ourselves to be, the MORE that Satan/his demons/adamant non-Christian believers tend to resent/hate us!

Why? Because they got the spirit of Antichrist on them. Please remember that ALL those who are ADAMANTLY AGAINST Christ currently HAVE the spirit of Antichrist on them, rather they realize it or not! (Agnostics, on the other hand, are ONE step closer to finding the Eternal Truth of Jesus Christ and Satan HATES THAT!)

In fact, 1 Peter 5: 8-9 in The New Testament says the following: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”

Translation? Satan’s CONSTANTLY looking for Christians whom he can make FAIL in some way, shape or form……..even better (in HIS mind, anyways) if he can make them PERMANENTLY FALL FROM GRACE! But he can’t do it alone, folks! That’s WHY he needs the help of his various DEMONS, working underneath him! And these demons are put there in our lives to try to “tempt us” and to try to rob us of our personal joy & salvation that can ONLY be found in the BIBLICAL Christ Jesus! 

And folks, I’m gonna tell you something. As Christians, we’re CONSTANTLY on trial, while living down on this Earth. And it’s NEVER-ENDING……(until we take our last breath, that is). We’re on trial, not ONLY by Satan and his demons (and even BY the Lord Jesus Christ himself, who’s attempting in these last days to weed out the spiritual wheat from the tares) but also by various non-believers/those of other religions, all around us……….

Do we cuss? Drink alot? Smoke weed/hash? Gamble? Go to strip clubs? Watch alot of R-rated movies? Hold a grudge against someone/group of people? Lie to get our way? Manipulate to get our way? Get angry at the slightest thing? Show up late to work? Constantly gossip and/or complain about the boss?

Acquiesce (that means, reluctantly give into but NOT reject) on the concept of “abortion”, “pre-marital sex”, the “gay agenda”, etc? Do we hate our enemies and refuse to forgive those who hurt us? Do we flick people off in traffic if someone cuts us off or REFUSE to let someone IN to traffic when they’re making a turn or there’s construction? Etc? Etc? 

Folks, the truth is, we’re CONSTANTLY being watched & monitored (in a proverbial sense) by all the non-believers in our lives (friends, family members, coworkers, complete strangers on online message boards/Youtube/Facebook/in person, etc.)

And if WE CHRISTIANS (as a collective whole) are participating in ANY willfully sinful activities (and it doesn’t even matter WHAT the willful sinful activity IS), just what type of “message” does that send to all the non-believers/those of other religions out there? They either believe one or two things: That Christianity’s a farce (“If YOU don’t even believe enough in your own religion to faithfully follow it, then why should *I*? OR that WE as Christians (or that Jesus Christ AS Christ) are WEAK!) 

Because if they can get YOU – the true, biblical-roots Christian – to DEFY the biblical Jewish Jesus Christ and/or the bible and its “commands” in ANY type of way – they think they’ve won and that YOU – the true, biblical-roots Christian – are WEAK, folks! In fact, just look at how the LGBT Activist folks has OVERTAKEN the Christian churches of today, as well as education, pop culture AND public policy!

They’ve think they’ve WON, folks! They really, truly do! Plus they ALSO think that WE CHRISTIANS are…..WEAK (as a whole) and FAR outnumbered! Satan has these poor folks SO DECEIVED that it’s not even funny, anymore! 

But folks, we got to think about what types of “messages” we’re sending to the people around us in our lives, on a daily basis. Because if WE are not FULLY living for Christ, they will reason within themselves, then why should THEY? AS Christians, we’re expected to be the “salt and light of the world!” 

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” – [Matthew 5: 13-16]

Believe it or not, the Lord Jesus Christ WANTS to use YOU to witness to all of THEM (all the non-believers and those of other religions) in your life. Therefore, they’re CONSTANTLY gonna be asking you about/trying to SEE for themselves what types of TV shows you watch, what movies you see, what music you listen to, what types of things you do in your free time, what types of things you post on Facebook, what types of things you say when you’re upset, etc. 

Because in a sense, THEY want to know what it is exactly that sets you apart from them. THEY want to know what being a Christian is vs. NOT being a Christian is. And so, when they look around and see many “worldly” Christian churches (AND Christians) supporting such things such as homosexuality and abortion, it sends a message that the “Christian” and non-Christian “aren’t so different, afterall” and thus, for THEM, in their minds, the NEED for a Saviour becomes “convoluted” and “inactive”. 

Parents, your children are CONSTANTLY watching you (rather you realize it or not). So be sure to set some good, Christian examples! Christian employees? Again, all your non-Christian coworkers are silently taking note of your every action at work (rather you realize it or not). They’re CONSTANTLY looking for things like: Ah-ha! He/she lied about being late to work! He/she’s no Christian! He/she’s no better than I! Therefore, I shouldn’t have to change MY life at all since there’s really no difference between him/her and I! and/or “Wow! He/she never smiles and always looks depressed and SERIOUS all the time, therefore, it MUST not pay to serve Jesus at all! Therefore, why should I?”

Do you SEE where I’m going with this, folks? We’re CONSTANTLY on trial with non-believers and those of other religions. CONSTANTLY. In line at Walmart/Best Buy/Baskin Robbins/the airport/etc. In traffic. At home, work or school. On an airplane. On websites and/or social media. In print (if a published author/reporter/blogger). At social events/protests. At the mall or movie theater. At the hospital/doctor’s/dentist’s office. In museums/national parks/tourist destinations. At social gatherings. Inside restaurants or fast-food joints. In public. At family functions. There’s just NO getting around it, folks! 

Oddly enough, it is Jesus’s, Satan’s, the demons AND the non-Christian believers way of testing us to see how truly “authentic” of a Christian we are. And WHEN a non-Christian believer DOES come across an “authentic” Christian, it sends a POWERFUL MESSAGE about just what a true Christian IS and what a true Christian ISN’T! (And even serves to drawl them closer & closer the Eternal Truth, which can ONLY be found in Jesus Christ, ofcourse!)

However though, like I said, the more truly AUTHENTIC of a Christian a person proves themselves to be, THE PROUDER & PROUDER JESUS CHRIST & HIS ANGELS IN HEAVEN GET and THE ANGRIER & ANGRIER that Satan and his demons get! Why? The answer can be found in Revelation 12:12 in the New Testament: 

“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” – [Revelation 12:12]

Translation? Satan’s angry and knows he has but a SHORT TIME to try to deceive AS MANY Christians (as well as non-Christians) as possible before Jesus’s soon 2nd arrival upon the Earth!

Likewise, MANY Christians, at the VERY first sign of “trouble”, “conflict”, “drama” or “trial/tribulation” get all panicked and freaked out about it and aren’t sure what to do! But HERE is what the bible says about that:

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” – [1 Peter 4: 12-13]

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 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– [Matthew 5: 10-12]

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 youRemember 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 alsoIf I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause” – [John 15: 18-25]

And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say” – [Luke 12: 11-12]

Therefore, I say this in conclusion: As a “Christian”, what types of messages are YOU sending to all the non-Christian believers in your life? Are YOU truly living for and representing Christ? ARE you a true ambassador for Him, the one and ONLY true God, maker of the heavens and the Earth? How do YOU know FOR 100% SURE? If Jesus were to arrive in the room right now (for example), would he praise or condemn your actions of the past week? Why? 

Let us look lastly at what the “Fruits of the Spirit” are (the HOLY SPIRIT, that is). According to Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law”

Therefore, do we love others as ourselves? Do have inner peace and joy? Do we have what it takes to OVERCOME/become a longsufferer? Are we gentle & kind? Do we have FAITH (TRUE ABRAHAMIC-LIKE FAITH) in Jesus where, for example, if we knew the world economy crashed tomorrow, that we’d have the faith that Jesus would somehow see us through, etc.? And do we have FAITH in His Written Word from Genesis to Revelation? And are we MEEK and humble (as in, “I’m just ONE person, one person of MANY, I am NOTHING without Christ?”) 

Although I’ll have to admit I’m not really sure here what is meant by “goodness” and “temperance”. I THINK temperance means the ability to “maintain our temper” and remain calm in any and all situations but I could be wrong. As for goodness? It likely means the PURSUIT of things that the BIBLE/JESUS calls “good” (the fight for Pro-Life, the fight for Pro-bible, Pro-Traditional Marriage/Family, etc.)

But folks, one thing’s for sure. We CAN’T let our guards down at ANY PRICE! Cause like I said, we Christians are ALL ON TRIAL at ALL TIMES in our lives, at ANY given day, place or time. So let us all try to let Christ live THROUGH US to the best of our knowledge and ability and try to get the most “spiritual growth(s)” out of our own personal trials & tribulations as we possibly can!

Cause ya never know……YOUR successfully coming out of a “trial” in your life (be it great or small) may just be the ONE very thing that turns a non-Christian believer INTO a believer! So remember that, folks! Set good examples (both for yourselves AND for others) and DON’T back down on the gospel at ANY PRICE! And may the BIBLICAL Lord Jesus Christ be with us ALL during these here End Times! AMEN!
