Is The Bible In YOUR Diet?

In a previous post entitled:  “Is Jesus in YOUR Diet?”, I talked about the importance of maintaining a healthy spiritual AND physical diet (while emphasizing the importance of a healthy physical diet). In THIS post, I’m gonna discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy SPIRITUAL diet!

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” – John 6:50-51

 

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” – Matthew 4:4

 

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread [spiritual bread of Jesus Christ] shall live for ever” – John 6:57-58

 

“And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ” – 1 Corinthians 10: 2-4

 

It’s very important that we spend time reading the WRITTEN Word of God (the bible!) For it is our spiritual nourishment! And without “time in the written word”, our spiritual walk with Christ begins to SUFFER! Why? Because we tend to think during those times & moments: “I don’t NEED to read the bible, I ALREADY know what’s in there!!!!!” and/or “What’s the POINT of reading the bible, I ALREADY know what the BASIC tenets of the faith are, so need I to know ANY MORE?” (OUCH!) 

For some, it can be kind’ve depressing to read about all the wars & battles in the Old Testament (“why so many deaths?”) and/or to read about what happened to Jesus during his consequent “arrest”, “trial” and “execution”. However, it’s important for us these days to READ about all those things and REMEMBER them and remember how GOOD (loving but firm) God is!

The Israelites winning the Old Testament battles were precursors to YOU AND ME (Christians/Messianic Jews/The Lord’s people) winning spiritual battles TODAY against the enemy! And all that stuff that happened to Jesus in the New Testament was PROPHESIED in the Old Testament!

And all those things HAD to happen, in order for Jesus to SHOW US that he is who HE says HE is, and that the written word – the bible – is itself what IT says IT is – the 100% complete written testimony of the Word of God [The Word of God ofcourse being Jesus Christ Almighty/HIMSELF!]

If your bible’s been collecting dust on the bookshelf, NOW’S the time to take it back out, dust it off & began re-reading it! If you’re not sure where to start, the Gospel of John is a good place or the Book of Acts. And if you prefer the Old Testament over the New, you can always start with Genesis, from the VERY beginning! And if you live in a country where bibles are forbidden or hard to come by, you can always PRAY that Jesus will show you dreams & visions about what the bible talks about! 

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” – Matthew 7: 7-8

 

I’m gonna tell you guys my own personal experience about what happened to me during all the times in my life when I did NOT read the bible every single day and the long-lasting effects it had on me.

One of the VERY first things I’ve noticed is that it starts out SO SMALL. I’d go to read one or two chapters and would suddenly feel very, very sleepy and couldn’t keep my eyes open. And then, the next day, I’d try to re-read that same passage and would AGAIN start to feel really, really sleepy. “What is the DEAL?”, I thought. “This is much too much to be coincidence! WHAT is going on, here?”

And I kept feeling this IMMENSE sense of guilt; thinking that the problem was ME! In other words, I kept internalizing it, thinking it must be MY fault if “I” kept feeling really, really sleepy while picking up the bible and reading it. And yet, when was the last time I had felt really, really sleepy while reading one of my favorite novels or the like? (Busted!)

So then, I went through this mental checklist of sorts: Am I bored by what I read? No. Did I get enough sleep last night? Probably not. Am I trying to read TOO MUCH of the bible at a time? Maybe”. And yet, NONE of those answers seemed to answer my question 100% satisfactorily as to WHY it kept happening…….

I felt tired, depressed, lethargic, moody. I became more “worldly”, and more concerned with the latest movies, books and TV shows, rather that on what Jesus and scripture said. Ah yes, Jesus……..the only begotten Son of God who died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins?

The one who saved me during my N.D.E. around 23 months or age or so and beyond? Sadly, he seemed to be the furthest thing from my mind as I dwelved into the “haven’t read the bible in a quite a long time” club! And then there was the “guilt factor”: “well, I haven’t read the bible in so long, how could Jesus ever forgive me?”

But yet, that’s when I realized something: when we don’t feel like reading the bible (for WHATEVER REASON), there is some HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE going on by Satan and his demons. But yet, Satan is good at getting us to turn it AGAINST OURSELVES by BLAMING OURSELVES for it, INSTEAD of blaming HIM/his demons for it, where all the blame should rightfully be! For if HE and his demons hadn’t first tempted us AWAY from reading the bible, then we would’ve (theoretically) been able to actually READ the bible without any problems!

Another reason we know it’s HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE is because of modern-day news stories like THIS

1). School told they can’t have “bible class”:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-public-school-bible-class-court-20170423-story.html

2). Teacher says student can’t read bible during “free reading time”:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/05/05/teacher-tells-student-cant-read-bible-in-my-classroom.html

3). Group wants bible removed from POW/MIA Display, despite YEARS of tradition:

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/04/07/advocacy-group-pushes-remove-bible-pow-mia-display.html

And folks, that’s just a small sample. There’s many, many stories about “removing bibles” or “bible classes” that I don’t have time to get into, right now. Therefore folks, it stands to reason: if there’s such STRONG drive to REMOVE BIBLES from school and public military displays, what makes anyone think that there’s also not a spiritual war happening in your VERY HEART over the bible and its precious contents?

When’s the last time you read ANY part of your bible? Be honest with yourself. It’s probably been awhile, hasn’t it? (And if you live in a country where a bible is not freely available, my heart goes out to you! I pray in the name of Jesus that you will somehow get access to the holy scriptures somehow!) And for those of you who LIVE in a country where a bible is freely available, WHAT ARE  YOU WAITING FOR? 

Folks, mark my words, the bible will someday be officially “outlawed”. There’ll likely come a time in Westernized nations where owning a bible is ILLEGAL……Yup, that’s right. ILLEGAL! (Especially in the New World/One World Gov’t system they’re trying so hard to set up right now!)

So READ your bibles front to back from Genesis to Revelation while you still can! Because you NEVER, EVER know when that “right” will be taken away from you! I’m DEAD SERIOUS on this, folks! Furthermore, if you KNOW what’s in the scriptures and what isn’t, you’re FAR less likely to be DECEIVED by Satan and his “workers” (both demonic and human). 

Many Christians today have time for Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, going to the movies, dinner with friends, Redbox movies, sports games, reading their favorite novels, etc., but yet, they DON’T seem to have the time to read the bible! They tell themselves that it’s too laborious, that it’s too much work, that they just don’t have the time to!” Well folks, what if Jesus were to be standing before one of those folks (myself included) and he told them someday that while he’d “like” to let them into “New Jerusalem”, he “just didn’t have the time to?” OUCH! 

In order for Jesus Christ to someday confess our name before the Heavenly Father and the angels, we must KNOW him personally; we must have a spiritual relationship with him. And the very BEGINNING of the foundation of that relationship comes by FAITH.

And according to Romans 10:17 in the New Testament: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“. In other words, we must READ (& FULLY ABSORB) the written word of God in order to HEAR IT IN OUR MINDS, HEARTS & SPIRITS! 

Sure, we could ALWAYS theoretically have faith in Jesus due to Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Lions Den or Moses parting the Red Sea, etc. But there’s just something about READING about it in print that ENHANCES the experience, as IF we were really there at the time of the great happenings of the bible!

Seeing it in movie form or listening to it on audio-book actually DETRACTS from the experience in a way since those two platforms make it an unemotional, INDIRECT experience. But reading it OURSELVES? That MAKES it a personal, emotional and DIRECT experience, almost as if reading somebody’s personal diary or autobiography of all the events that took place! Now think about this for moment: What makes reading someone’s diary or autobiography more PERSONAL to you? If someone ELSE reads it to you or IF you read it YOURSELF? Think about it, folks! 

Many Christians today based their “bible theology” on FEELINGS & EMOTIONS – what they FEEL to be true or SHOULD be true – other than what’s FACT! And that’s truly sad! For if these folks would read their bibles more often, they’d come to realize just how WRONG they are/were in their “assumptions!”

Imagine if YOU wrote YOUR own autobiography, only to have one your “proclaimed fans” come forth later and say: “No, this is NOT what they mean here……they in fact mean THIS” as IF that person knew you and/or knew your “thoughts”, personally! Wouldn’t you be so offended by that? I know “I” would!!!!!! So it is with God and his holy, written word. It’s “written in stone”, it doesn’t NEED to be interpreted or re-interpreted, as it were. Let the bible speak for itself! 

But going back to the Romans 10:17 passage once more: “”So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.

Some of you may be wondering what “hearing by the word of God” means. Well, Jesus Christ himself IS the Word of God. John 1:1-2 in the New Testament confirms this. Therefore, “hearing BY the word of God” simply means to hear it BY means of Jesus. And to hear it BY Jesus (NOWADAYS) means to hear Jesus speak through the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE!) Capeche? (Note: if you’re lucky enough, you can usually find a King James Bible/KJV bible with words of Jesus IN RED!)

So, for example, if you read the Book of Matthew, Chapters 5-7 in the New Testament (known as Jesus’s “Sermon on the Mount”), it’s not hard to “spiritually hear” Jesus’s voice in that sermon, as though you were one of the actual witnesses that were there that day. You can read Jesus’s words in those chapters and just KNOW without a doubt what Jesus was trying to say (and also what he was NOT trying to say!) 

And the book of John tells us exactly who Jesus is and where he came from, no questions asked. Genesis tells us how everything in the universe was made (more or less). In fact, each book of the bible has a “story” behind it. An interesting “tidbit” of God’s autobiography to the world; THE MOST amazing autobiography (and love letter) ever written in ALL of existence to ALL of mankind – those who choose to adhere to its contents, that is! Each “book” serves as a “chapter” of the Almighty’s “autobiography”. Question is, do WE as Christians fully accept it? “I” do! 

I don’t believe as a Judeo-Christian that I can just pick and choose which parts of the bible I believe and want to read and what parts not. What’s the point in that? Because the bible (philosophically speaking) is either ALL TRUE or it’s not, right folks? Yet I submit to you today that EVERY SINGLE WORD of the bible is true! EVERY. SINGLE. WORD! [Note: Don’t get me started though on how the words “alone” and “Easter” were improperly added – more about that in a different post]. 

2 Timothy 3: 16-17All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”.

In other words, lets say I’ve read the bible front to back (from Genesis to Revelation) a TON of times. But yet, I haven’t read it in a while. Especially the Sermon on the Mount. And lets say I’m holding a slight grudge against someone. Therefore, 2 Timothy 3:16 informs us that NOT ONLY is all scripture given by inspiration of God but that it’s our “golden measuring stick” of righteousness! 

Therefore, only by SCRIPTURE am I (the so-called Christian holding a grudge) able to see the “sin” of my grudge and the “proper” way to deal with it. Make sense, folks? That’s WHY it’s ever-so-important that we read our bibles (even if it’s only a couple chapters at a time) on a continual basis so that WE can know what “sin(s)” we must repent of and the proper, spiritual way to act when we’re living out our lives FOR CHRIST! 

Some Christians have plenty of TIME to read the bible but they get BORED of reading the bible. That, my friend, is yet ANOTHER type of DEMONIC ATTACK happening against that person whenever that happens! Or have you ever read a certain passage and a voice within your mind started to say: “Blah, blah, blah, I already know how this one’s gonna end?” YET ANOTHER type of demonic attack! There’s SO MANY TYPES of demonic attacks against us that Satan uses that most of the time, we’re not even FULLY AWARE of it! 

In fact, not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not, but here’s all the types of “demonic attacks” (by means of “distractions”) that have happened to me most times I’ve tried sitting down and reading the bible:

1). Thoughts about food/eating would pop into my head

2). I’d see an advertisement for something “cool-looking” at the bottom of the web page I was looking at for this blog (as in, end times news headlines)

3). I would start to sometimes feel really, really sleepy or suddenly get a “throbbing headache” out of nowhere

4). I would get chronically indecisive about WHAT part of the bible I wanted to read, which would then make me give up after awhile

5). Somebody would text me or call me on the phone just AS I was getting started on reading a chapter of the bible

6). I’d suddenly worry about my finances (for no conceivable reason) and would frantically log on to my laptop to check my bank statement

7). I’d get tempted to read a novel, instead OR to log online to check my work schedule

8). ETC.

Conclusion? Distractions are SPIRITUALLY DEADLY! Satan has no doubt tried to put as many “distractions” into our paths as human possibly in order to keep us from reading the written word of God (the bible).

But ya know what, folks? The Book of Revelation even offers a SPECIFIC BLESSING to those who read it:

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” – [Revelation 1:3]

But again, I DON’T think that just stands for the Book of Revelation only but for the ENTIRE BIBLE ITSELF! I believe that there is a SPECIFIC BLESSING for each and every Christian when they not only READ the bible but fully absorb its contents into their HEARTS, SOULS, MINDS & SPIRITS!

In fact, Romans 8:13 suggests that we must STARVE the flesh in order to FEED the spirit:

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”.

Okay, so what does that even MEAN, some may ask? What does it mean to “feed the spirit?” Just like what does it mean to “starve the flesh?” 

It means that we must put JESUS FIRST in our lives, even BEFORE our need of food, etc. Now, does that mean we should STARVE OURSELVES and stop eating food, altogether? Ofcourse not! It only means that from time to time, we should fast!

To “fast” means to go for a short period WITHOUT food. And during that time, we’re supposed to do nothing BUT pray & read God’s written word (the bible). This time can be anywhere from 6-24 hours, depending on one’s personal preference. Back in ancient biblical times, this is HOW the Prophets of Old obtained “visions”, “wisdom” or “answered prayers” from the Lord! By withholding physical “pleasures” such as food and showing God that God was FIRST in their lives! 

But it’s amazing JUST HOW FAST a person can “stray” from God/Jesus just by not reading their bible in awhile or just happening to be around people that don’t love or honor God! That’s why reading our bibles (and OFTEN) is how we stay CLOSE to Jesus, stay IN THE SPIRITUAL KNOW, become ON-GUARD against any and all SPIRITUAL ATTACKS, etc.! The bible is our MANUAL, our own “instruction book” of righteousness……even part of OUR SPIRITUAL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY – SATAN! (The Bible is FOOD FOR VERY *SOULS!*) 

TRUST ME FOLKS, what the Devil fears THE MOST is you reading your bible – AND PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE! So remember that, folks! Get to reading your bibles again, PUT IT INTO ACTUAL PRACTICE IN YOUR LIVES and spiritually PUNCH Satan where it hurts! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RISE OF THE MACHINES/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PART TWO

As the field of artificial intelligence is taking off at breakneck speed, and as there’s been much talk lately of “the real-life Skynet” possibly coming about in today’s world, [please remember that Skynet was the company that produced The Terminator in the Terminator movies with ARNOLD S.], I’m now kind’ve wondering rather or not it’s possible that Revelation 13:15 could actually be REFERRING to such an outcome….as in, the ULTIMATE “terminator of terminators”, who’s created by the Antichrist but who is indwelt by Satan himself. (When I was reading a portion of Revelation 13 the other day, that’s what IMMEDIATELY came to my mind).

For Revelation 13:15 says that the Antichrist will “create an image to the beast”. That, to me, sounds like some sort of “Skynet-esque” type creation. And then, the verse further goes on to say that the Antichrist will “give life to the image”, so that it will speak. Does that NOT sound like the field of robotics/artificial intelligence to YOU? Because we know that the Antichrist can’t make a NATURAL CREATION. Therefore, he has to make an ARTIFICIAL ONE. And then the verse further goes on to say: “and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”. And THAT, to me, sounds like the “Terminator of all Terminators”.

In fact, I kind’ve envision it (the Revelation 13:15 outcome) as a human-like Android, but with “god-like” super-human strength. I DON’T think it’ll be a simple “hologram/holographic” like image since we already have those and they’re “no big deal”. We also already have “speaking Androids” (which are freaky, btw but STILL very “basic” at this point). But this particular “image”, I think, will have to be something EXCEPTIONAL…….something that’s possibly never been seen before by mankind……hence, its “allure”.

So perhaps it’ll be the MOST human-like Android EVER….Or it could just be some sort of speaking statue made of gold. All WE know from the bible is that the “image will SPEAK” and be very life-like! And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, the Antichrist will probably make the image look somewhat like Jesus or a “prophet”. So just imagine this for a second, folks! Just imagine a human-like Android walking the Earth in the VISUAL FORM of Jesus that preaches to people an UNBIBLICAL GOSPEL!

(And if it’s not an Android-ish Skynet-ish type thing, then perhaps it’ll be a “walking, talking golden statue of Jesus” that the Antichrist will “bring to life” in order to deceive many into thinking it’s the “biblical Jesus” when it’s NOT! OR….it could be a moving “Android” of the “Virgin Mary”, etc! DON’T BE DECEIVED, FOLKS!) 

Anyways, just some spiritual food for thought. I’m not saying that every other Christian out there has to agree with my interpretation but I was just pondering all this the other day as I started to think more deeply about artificial intelligence and its long-term “spiritual implications” upon mankind.

Revelation 13:16-17 further goes on to say: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that NO MAN might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [And in the bible, the word “man” means MANKIND, so that would include women & children as well].

So we know THREE things are gonna happen when the Antichrist comes on the scene. 1) He will create an “image” of the beast (which is Satan). And 2) He will give “life” to the image and make it “speak” and also that 3) ALL who refuse to worship the “image of the beast” or the “number of his name” will be KILLED.

So what can we gather from this? If we put two and two together, it would most certainly seem like taking the MARK of the beast and worshiping the LIVING IMAGE (Android?/Terminator-like thing?) of the beast are one and the same. For worshiping the “living/speaking image of the beast” seems to require taking his “Mark” at the same exact time.

But also at the same time, it’s also an ECONOMIC thing, for NO person on the Earth will be able to buy or sell without this “Mark”. And the book of Revelation warns that WHOMEVER takes this “Mark” will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY!

But one thing’s for certain: robots/artificial intelligence will DEFINITELY become smarter than humans someday, no doubt about it. The only question is, WHEN? Elon Musk’s solution is for us to “merge” with machines. Steven Hawking’s solution is for mankind to “attempt” to inhabit the cosmos. But Elon Musk’s idea chills me to the core when I think more in depthly about the Mark of the Beast and/or the image of the beast. As for Mr. Hawking’s idea? No matter WHERE you go or WHAT you do in the universe, you CAN’T run away from Jesus Christ, for he hails from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING! From every single corner of the cosmos to the depths of the sea!

[As a side note, the bible says that the BIBLICAL Jesus is going to return to Earth from the clouds of heaven. So I DO think it’s highly possible that HAARP/Project Bluebeam will try to create a “false Jesus hologram in the clouds of the sky”, in order to try to deceive many! So….how can we distinguish between a so-called fake Jesus “‘hologram” in the sky and the REAL Jesus? The REAL Jesus will rapture up all his Christian saints! Therefore, if an “image” of Jesus is just sitting there in the clouds of they sky and NOT doing anything (i.e. NOT rapturing UP Christian saints into the clouds), you can pretty much KNOW it’s a false, hologramized “image” of Jesus!] 

Nevertheless, I was ALSO wondering the other day if any other Christians out there thought there might be a possible link between Revelation 13:15 and artificial intelligence. It’s certainly interesting to think about, especially in these here End Times that we’re currently living in. And the more I learn about artificial intelligence, the more I don’t like it and see it as a very “dark”, spiritual thing. It (A.I.) is no doubt being promoted in today’s world as a “good thing” (the “family-friend robot”, the “companion robot”, the “assistant robot”, etc.) but believe me, it’s not as “good” as it seems! There is a MUCH darker spiritual picture to the story here, folks!

They’ve now started to create the concept of “bionic insects and animals”, “sex robots”, etc! So then it’s like, okay, WHERE do they draw the line? When is too far, TOO far? Because for THEM, there likely IS no “too far!” It’s almost like some of the elite A.I. scientists of today are saying to themselves AND to the world: “No God, we can do better”. It’s quite chilling, actually.

In the following video, Pastor Billy Crone gives an excellent presentation of the LONG-TERM DANGERS OF A.I./RISE OF THE MACHINES:

 

 

The Workplace Is A Spiritual Battlefield!

Work. It’s where a good majority of Americans spend the majority of their time. And each individual workplace has a “culture” (both corporately and individually). And nine times out of 10, that particular “culture” is NOT conducive in any way towards Christianity/Jesus/the bible! Let me number the ways!

Out of any given “secular” workplace (and I’m excluding the Christian workplaces, here), only about 5% of employees or less are likely “Christian” in any way, shape or form. And OF that 5% or less that are Christian, only about 1-2% would qualify as “true Christians”. Therefore, the odds are HIGHLY STACKED against any one person who truly desires to live the Lord’s way! 

In fact, several things happen in the workplace that go AGAINST the bible:

1). People like to “gossip” about one another. And if you don’t participate in the “workplace gossip”, people look down on you as though you’re some type of “holier than though Christian.”

2). Christians (as a whole) aren’t allowed to talk about their Christian faith in the workplace. And if they do, they’ll likely be reprimanded in some way, shape or form. Yet, coworkers who are NOT Christian are likely pretty much allowed to mock Christianity to the hilt and NOT get reprimanded for it in any type of way. 

3). Many workplaces are now starting to embrace “liberal theology” with “gender-neutral bathrooms” and the like. If a Christian employee tries to protest, they’re oftentimes fired or formally written up due to “being discriminatory” towards “gender-neutral people”, or at the very least, laughed at and ignored.

4). Non-Christian coworkers (as a whole) are CONSTANTLY keeping secret (even unconscious) tabs on “Christian coworkers” just waiting for them to “slip up”, somehow & just waiting to see how THOSE Christian coworkers live up to the bible’s standards AND to workplace scrutiny (it’s TRUE!) They’re particularly mindful of things such as if a Christian coworker is ever “late” to work, if they take too long for their lunch break or 15min break, OR if they cuss or use strong language when irritated or angry. 

5). Non-Christian coworkers (as a whole) will oftentimes try to “tempt” Christian coworkers into behaving or thinking badly OR will “gloat” about their non-Christian faith in an attempt to “silence” the Christian or “shame them”.

6). Satan himself will oftentimes use CUSTOMERS/CLIENTS/PATIENTS/RENTERS etc. (whatever the symbiotic role is) to get on our nerves, make us irritated & angry, tempt us to gossip about them to coworkers, tempt us TO act out in anger against them, etc.

7). Satan himself (and his demonic spirits working under him) will oftentimes tempt us to do “dishonest practices” (ex: a doctor/lawyer overcharging the patient/client, a person putting down on the time clock sheet that they were on time to work even if they weren’t, a person lying on temp logs if the temperature wasn’t hot enough/were forgotten if working in food service, putting all the trash/crumbs in a room underneath the bed and/or not changing the sheets if a housekeeper, you get the idea……..)

8). There is this IMMENSE PRESSURE (even for those who ARE born again Christians) to “fit in” by going to parties/workplace functions, by watching the latest movies/TV shows, by listening to the latest music, by trying some of the latest drugs/alcohol to hit the market, etc. Most people don’t want to be seen as a complete “square”, right? It’s human nature to want to be “liked” and Satan uses that against us in the workplace, EXCEEDINGLY! 

9). All OTHER faiths are promoted and it’s HIGHLY DISCOURAGING to the Christian. This puts SO MUCH pressure on the Christian (in the workplace setting) to NOT talk about their Christian faith at all.

10). Even amidst all clamour & opposition, those born-again Christians who DO actively choose to the cling to the bible’s principles are oftentimes mocked & ridiculed to SCORN by many of those in the workplace who do NOT share their love of Christ & of righteousness! 

11). When nearly 95% or more of people in the workplace DON’T love or worship Jesus, it becomes really, really, really hard to try to continue to live by the bible’s precepts. Cause like it or not, non-Christian type of behavior DOES seem to rub off on Christian people after awhile. Need proof? Look no further than the case of “Lot”, Abraham’s nephew in the book of Genesis or also how the Hebrew Israelites starting behaving after their “captivity in Babylon”. Our “social & work environment” affects us folks, rather we like it or not! 

12). If ever a born-again Christian DOES try to talk about their faith with a coworker or starts silently praying for one of them, it’s almost like Satan & the dark side pick up on the fact IMMEDIATELY and IMMEDIATELY tries to make grounds to thwart it! Example: a customer will walk up (in food service or retail), a manager will swing by and “distract” by asking for/saying such n’ such, that particular coworker will suddenly seem to go “stark raving mad” (because remember it’s the demonic spirit that’s living INSIDE of them that’s ENRAGED at the gospel), etc. 

13). Satan will oftentimes utilize “temptations of the flesh” to get a born-again Christian in the workplace to fall. And sadly, he’s oftentimes very, very successful at it! 

14). Satan will also use his “followers” to try to “tempt others away from the faith, COMPLETELY” (oftentimes using the tactics called “the emotional response” – as in – “hey, aren’t transgender people, people TOO? Shouldn’t they have “rights”, just like everyone else?” and so-called “rational reasoning” – as in – “So…..ask yourself this…..does it REALLY seem rational that Eve came across a TALKING SNAKE in the Garden of Eden? Come on now, lets get REAL, here!” while ALSO simultaneously repeating the lies of Evolution over and over again in an attempt to make a Christian lose their faith in Creationism/Genesis. 

15). Some non-Christians have even taken to “threats” and “intimidation” of their Christian coworkers (no joke!) In fact, there’s likely been many, many cases of “workplace-related witchcraft” going on against every single, true born-again “Christian”. That’s what they do in workplaces these days, folks. They comb over your social media. They try to figure out your “personal view on things”. They try to figure out your last name, where you live, what types of foods you eat, what types of TV programs you watch, etc. They single you out. And once you’re “singled out” by them, look out. Things could quickly get very ugly, spiritually speaking! Especially if you’re not TRULY grounded in your faith in Jesus! 

16). “Transgender/homosexual/non-binary” employees serve TWO purposes and two purposes, ONLY: A) To try to FORCE workplaces into accepting “gender ideology” and also B) To try to FORCE OUT any promotion of Christianity or a Christian coworker’s right to preach the gospel (ESPECIALLY the part of the gospel that says that homosexuality/transgenderism is a sin)

17). Most workplaces do NOT allow a Christian worker to openly pray or “openly” wear a cross necklace around their neck, etc. Yet, many workplaces now accept a man “wearing lipstick” or a woman dressed as a man or even a person with multiple piercings, oddly colored hair & tattoos all over their body. 

18). Many workplaces do not allow bibles (even during lunch breaks or 15min breaks) because it can “incite violence/complaints/protests” on the part of non-believers. 

19). Complaints of workplace harassment made by Christians (rather verbal, physical, emotional and/or sexual) are oftentimes ignored & swept under the rug, as though they “never happened”. 

20). Christians are oftentimes fired or severely reprimanded for “paying for a customer’s meal”, “offering free lawyer/doctor/medical services to those in need”, etc.

21). VERY, VERY RARELY does a workplace let a Christian/Messianic Jew off for the “biblical Sabbath” every week OR for “biblical holidays” and if they DO, it does NOT come without “consequence”. The Christian/M.J. will oftentimes be “punished” for it somehow, in the workplace. Why? Because Satan and his demons are ANGRY at the Christian for trying to live their lives totally around Christ! The demons CAN’T STAND IT! Satan CAN’T STAND IT! They’re ANGRY with any true Christians because they know their time is short!

(In fact, Satan and his demons will even try to DIRECTLY attack Christians at work, even coming THROUGH or speaking THROUGH their coworkers! The ONLY way to defeat a demon is in the mighty name of Jesus! Remember that!) 

Folks, this is the world we’re living in, today. First, the battlefield starts in the mind. And then, it comes to the home. And thirdly, at work. But out of these three, the spiritual battlefield that rages on in the workplace is THE STRONGEST of these three battles. Why? Because it has the MOST IMPACT. It is basically “temptations GALORE”……

Temptations are MUCH EASIER to beat at the home than in the workplace, am I right? Especially if a bible or a poster of the 10 commandments is close by. And temptations that begin in the mind can more easily be defeated by praying in the name of Jesus. But temptations in the workplace are MUCH, MUCH HARDER to overcome since a Christian must CONSTANTLY stay focused on work and “the current task at hand”. It’s very, very hard for a Christian to mentally concentrate enough TO pray in the workplace setting, am I right? 

Some Christians go INTO the workplace every day DETERMINED to try to share their faith,etc. and then, one hour later after arriving at work, are EMBITTERED, ANGRY, RESENTFUL, STRESSED, etc. So what happened? What happened between the time they left their house/apartment that morning, to an hour after arriving at work? Answer: Temptation happened! For NEVER is the temptation to get frustrated/angry and/or to “gossip” stronger than in the WORKPLACE of all places, am I right? 

The workplace is a NESTING GROUND for Satan & his demons, folks, it really IS! And sadly, ALOT of Christians don’t see that! They see it as some sort of “persecution” but many of them are “spiritually asleep” and do NOT see the “workplace” for what it REALLY, TRULY IS: a SPIRITUAL BATTLEFIELD! 

Satan & his demons are out for blood, folks! Spiritual blood! And the less informed a Christian is, in the work setting, the more hold he has on them! Does that scare you, folks? It SHOULD! 

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” – Ephesians 6:12 

Spiritual warfare is something that Christians RARELY talk about today and it’s just RAGING in the workplaces and in the churches today! RRRAAAGGGGIIINNNNNGGGGG! How do more people not see this fact? In fact, the ONLY REASON that churches AND workplaces today are now catering to the RADICAL LGBT ACTIVISTS?

It is BECAUSE many of the Christians in churches and workplaces today are NOT and WERE NOT already actively engaging in SPIRITUAL BATTLE! And BECAUSE they don’t have their “spiritual shields” on and their “spiritual swords” at the ready, BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING! BAD *SPIRITUAL* THINGS! Because BELIEVE ME, any workplace/church, and I do mean *ANY* WORKPLACE/CHURCH (no matter WHAT type of workplace/church it is) that PROMOTES OR ACCEPTS *ANY* type of ungodly theology (be it gender ideology or what have ya), is now considered a CURSED WORKPLACE (AND/OR CHURCH) in the eyes of God, like it or not!

Just because a huge bolt of lightning didn’t take out the workplace or church yet doesn’t mean anything. For the Lord is likely holding back his Wrath ON those workplaces for the sake of the “few spiritually pure” that work there. And how much longer those “pure’ workers will continue to work there is both up to them and up to Jesus. 

Because my guess is once those few “pure” workers are gone, those particular “LGBT-affirming” workplaces will be toast, one way or another. In fact, I wonder what the long-term future will be for all LGBT-affirming workplaces. It will be interesting to watch, in the near future. SO MANY businesses are “going under” these days and I’m beginning to wonder if ONE of the reasons SO MANY businesses are going under IS due to God’s Wrath? Just a thought? 

 

 

 

What Satan Doesn’t Want You Knowing About Abortion, LGBT, Etc.

America was founded upon the notions called “life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness”. Satan’s fall was founded upon the notions of pride, greed, envy, anger & deceit. In the year 2017, pretty much all of these concepts were put into the melting pot called “Modern-Day Christianity”. And many people are none the wiser. Why? Answer: Because Satan successfully mixes truth WITH lies. 

Let us look at a few examples, here:

  1. The “Sunday Sabbath”/”Jesus Rose On Sunday”
  2. Abortion/Women’s Rights
  3. LGBT/Human Rights
  4. Transgenderism/Human Rights

Okay, lets now take a deeper look at #1, The “Sunday Sabbath”. Back in ancient times, the Roman Emperor Constantine, along with the help of “Catholic bishops”, proclaimed Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. 

“What’s so wrong with THAT?” someone may protest. “That sounds nice…..that sounds like Constantine was trying to PROTECT Christians from persecution”.

But lets unpack this a bit….there were many, many “Pagans” living in the Roman Empire at that time. And the Roman Catholic Church (and Constantine) wanted to control as many of the Roman “populace” as possible. So how do that? Answer: Through religion. 

But the Pagans didn’t LIKE many of the BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN PRACTICES……so Constantine had to “appeal” to the Pagans. And the ONLY way he could do that was by PAGANIZING CHRISTIANITY, and that’s exactly what he did (with the help of the Catholic bishops, ofcourse). 

So essentially, what Constantine did was spread a FALSE, PAGANIZED *FORM* of Christianity that had no true, biblical merits. Why? Because he (along with the help of the Catholic bishops) CHANGED THE SABBATH, from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday to Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!

(And interestingly enough, if you look around the Catholic Church today in the Vatican, you will see ALL SORTS of remnants of “sun worship” – in fact, the “halos” you see around “Catholic saints” are supposed to represent SUN HALOS/SUNS!) 

That was the start of it. But he didn’t stop THERE. No……He took it even a step FURTHER. He OUTLAWED fasting, Biblical Feasts, and ABSTAINING from work on Saturday, the TRUE SABBATH. He OUTLAWED biblical feasts by calling them “Jewish feasts”. And then, sometime later on, the false/Paganized holidays of “Christmas” and “Easter” were celebrated, which actually came from ANCIENT PAGAN SEX FESTIVALS (Saturnalia of Christmas, and Feast of Ishtar, fertility “goddess” of Easter).

Because do you REALLY think Satan would’ve let the Roman Catholic Church (key word being ROMAN) stand if it were REALLY, TRULY following the bible? Think about it, folks! The ONLY reason Satan’s left the Roman Catholic Church alone and let it PROSPER beyond anything imaginable that this Earth’s ever seen is because it, the Roman Catholic Church, is NOT following the bible (atleast, they’re not following the Jesus Christ of the BIBLE, anyways……..but another “Jesus“, altogether……..)

And over time, the Roman Catholic Church has gained such WIDE, global influence to the point that even many NON-BELIEVERS, sadly, consider The Catholic Church/Pope/Vatican to be THE PREMIER AUTHORITY on Christianity! “Well, the Catholic Church has made alot of contributions to history, such as the first printing of the bible in the English language, etc.”

See how Satan works, folks? See how he mixes truth with lies? He’ll allow Christians to go to church every week because they (as a whole) are going to church on the WRONG DAY/WRONG SABBATH (Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!) Just like he’ll allow Christians to be Christians since they celebrate in the FALSE/PAGANIZED HOLIDAYS OF CHRISTMAS & EASTER!

(Plus, have you ever noticed how these two holidays actually MOCK Jesus Christ by equating him with “Santa Claus” and the “Easter bunny? Tell me what those things have to do with Christ! Anything? Didn’t think so!!!!!)

We know from the bible that God worked for SIX DAYS, then rested on, CONSECRATED and SANCTIFIED the 7th day of the week, SATURDAY, as HIS HOLY 7TH DAY SABBATH. So for MORTAL MAN to come along and CHANGE IT? It’s like saying that God made a mistake when he made the 7th Day Sabbath! THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

And when people starting waking up to that fact, Satan started a “Resurrection Sunday” Movement. Have you ever noticed that, folks? Pastors preaching that “Jesus rose on Sunday morning”. But if you read the bible between the lines, it’s clearly apparent that Jesus rose at the END of Saturday evening and was ALREADY RISEN by EARLY Sunday morning, he didn’t rise DURING Sunday morning. So the “Resurrection Sunday” thing is CLEARLY A LIE!

Now lets go to example #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. It really all started in the 60’s, during the “Free Love/Hippy Movement’. That’s what really got all this “dire feminism” thing started. And WHO do you think is behind the Hippy Movement? Any guesses, folks? It sure as heck wasn’t Jesus Christ of the bible that started it! (And P.S.: did you know that the Peace Sign is actually supposed to be a MOCKING of Christ?) 

“We don’t have to listen to authority, we don’t have to answer to anybody, we have free will, we can do whatever the heck we want”. My, my, my, one would rather think that it was a “fallen angel rally”, not any type of “human rally”, am I right? Don’t those sentiments echo almost exactly what the fallen angels likely said to themselves/amongst themselves when they thought they no longer had to follow God as the Head Authority? Think about it, folks!

And out of “hippy-ism” sprang FEMINISM. Basically, this “Movement” ATTACKED Jesus Christ, ATTACKED THE BIBLE, ATTACKED the Traditional Family, ATTACKED traditional gender role models and “worshiped the woman”. At first, women were fighting for the right to ENTER into the workforce. And then, they wanted the right to NOT have to have a baby. That’s where the “Abortion fight” came in.

“I’m not ready for a baby yet, or right now”. Whatever happened to PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? Does THAT not matter, anymore? Whenever a woman protests: “my body, my choice”, she instead is essentially saying: “I want the right to have unprotected sex with no biological consequences”. 

True, some women are raped and that’s a horrible, horrible thing. But the baby itself didn’t rape them. Why is their life more important than the baby’s life? Can they REALLY imagine the baby within their wombs saying: “Please kill me mommy, I don’t WANT to live?” 

Oddly enough, long-time research shows that women that kept and raised their babies born out of rape were much, much better off psychologically and emotionally, rather than those raped women who chose to abort. Abortion is something that stays with you for YEARS afterwards (in your mind, heart, body and spirit) and there’s no escaping it! Not to mention that many raped women say that keeping & raising their babies actually HEALED THEM, psychologically! Who ever would’ve thought?

But the truth is, abortion does NOT make a pregnant woman unpregnant but rather, the mother of a dead baby. And I don’t exactly see women dancing in the streets and being all high and emotionally pumped up and JOYFULLY HAPPY after having an abortion. So I can only guess that abortion is NOT so liberating to women, as the “Feminist Movement” claims. 

But Satan is like that high-payed lawyer that tries to LURE women into the sin of murder: some women hear that small still voice that says: “Hey, YOU – the woman – should have rights, TOO! You shouldn’t HAVE to have a kid if you’re not ready to!” But tell me. If people were in the streets protesting: “I should have the right to murder”, other people would go BALLISTIC and have those people arrested for “incitement”, etc. Yet sadly, in today’s world, when women march in protest for the right to MURDER THEIR BABIES, the world even doesn’t blink an eye & turns the other way. 

And during an abortion, the baby’s heart stops and they are pulled from the womb, LIMB BY LIMB, with forceps! What if someone were to pull today’s modern women or men apart, LIMB BY LIMB and then try to say it was their “right” to do so? What a sick, murderous, degenerate nation we live in today, folks! A woman’s right to sin is more important than the life of her baby! 

Even women that are MARRIED are no exception. Some of them want their abortions, TOO! And for WHAT? Their lives are more important than their baby’s life BECAUSE….?? The point I’m trying to make here is that MURDER should NEVER, EVER be a “right” in this country – for ANY REASON – and yet, sadly, it is (in the case of Abortion and Euthanasia!) 

Abortion is NOT about “Women’s Rights”, it’s about TWO things and TWO things, ONLY: killing and $$$$$$$ profits! 

The bond that a mother has with her unborn child is one of THE MOST precious bonds in existence! So for any one person, name or organization to come along and try to DESTROY that bond and to do so for $$$$ profit?!!!!! Those are the TRUE PEOPLE who are “Anti-Woman”, and “Anti-Woman’s Rights”.

Planned Parenthood even “complains” about “Birthright Centers”, places that help women RAISE their babies and find necessary resources for doing so! It’s not enough that they’re ALREADY killing babies for $$$ profit! It would rather seem that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want ANY babies born, PERIOD! They apparently HATE life! That’s because Jesus Christ IS life! And he’s the Maker & Giver of it! We were all made in God’s holy image; male and female!

Now lets move on to #’s 3 and 4, LGBT/Transgenderism/Human Rights. It’s really no different than #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. Human rights. Sounds good on the surface, doesn’t it? But what is it REALLY ABOUT, underneath all the “media propaganda” layers? Lets have a look.

The whole point of the LGBT Pride Parades and/or Transgenderism Movement (correct me if I’m wrong) is to convince the outside world that what they’re doing is “normal”. Because hey, if it’s “normal”, then it should (theoretically) be a “human right”, correct?

Only, the thing is, it’s NOT “normal” (not according to the bible AND not according to many psychologists). In fact, back in the 70’s, the Diagnostic Manual described “homosexuality/transgenderism” as “abnormal/mental illness”. And what’s interesting to note here is that the psychologists behind the manual weren’t even particularly religious, from what I note. And so nobody can make the argument that these psychologists were “religious” per say or that they were “just acting with the times”. They saw gender as “truly binary”, set in stone and anything outside of that was to them, “biologically abnormal”.

But then, “homosexual activists” put pressure on the APA to REMOVE that listing from the Diagnostic Manual. They wanted it to be known that it was a “choice”, that they were simply “choosing” to be that way, from what I read. But NOW – in the year 2017 – they’ve changed their tune. NOW they want people to think they were “born that way” and “can’t help it”. And ironically, I’ve most recently read about a survey done, that when homosexual people were asked if they’d be willing to take a pill if it “undid their gayness”, the overwhelming majority said no. Interesting.

A prominent gay activist HIMSELF most recently proclaimed: “there IS no such thing as a gay gene” 

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene

Not to mention a few academic/scientific studies confirm the same:

https://www.onenewsnow.com/science-tech/2016/08/23/gay-gene-no-scientific-evidence-for-it

https://concernedwomen.org/images/content/bornorbred.pdf

http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-there-no-gay-gene

So….WHY do homosexuals and transgenders want people to think that they’re behavior is “normal?” Well, the first thing is that they’re in denial. They DON’T see what they’re doing as “Sin” at all (with many not even believing in the concept of “sin” to begin with, for that matter). While yet others likely think that, maybe, just maybe, if they can get MAN/MANKIND to approve it, then maybe that means that they could also get Jesus Christ to approve it. Because, using secular reasoning, “if too many human beings approve it, then God can’t be against it”.

But the thing to note here is that even if 99% of people on Earth APPROVED of the “sin” of homosexuality/transgenderism, it would STILL be a sin in Jesus’s eyes! And if it came down to only ONE person on the planet (and their close family, perhaps) being saved in the End, then only one person (+ any possible close family members, by proxy) would be saved! (i.e. Let us not forget Noah & his family during the time of God’s Wrath and the Great Flood Upon the Earth!)

But lets unpack this a bit. If/when a gay/trans person says they were “born that way”, they’re essentially calling God/Jesus Christ A LIAR! Not to mention that they’re ALSO saying in a sense that they HATE the way God/Jesus Christ made them! So how is that NOT sin, folks? Think about it!

ALL the LGBT fight is about (essentially) is THE RIGHT TO SIN WITHOUT EARTHLY CONSEQUENCES! That’s all it REALLY boils down to, after one has “unpacked” and “unpeeled” all the layers of what I call the “Onion of Unrighteousness”.

So the bad news is that no, they were NOT born that way and science (AND the bible) proves it! But the GOOD NEWS is that, BECAUSE they were NOT born that way, Jesus Christ can STILL change them and turn them INTO the person Jesus had ORIGINALLY intended them to be!

Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible) can TAKE AWAY their “transgendered feelings” and their “homosexual attractions”. He can BIND the homosexual/transgender demons that plague a person. He can HEAL them and SET THEM FREE from the homosexual/transgender demons, and YES, they are demons, folks; demonic spirits who (much like Satan) lay in wait for whatever soul they can “capture” and “deceive”. 

Sadly, many LGBT folks are “easy pickins” for such “demons” since they’re “broken people” to begin with! Satan constantly searches out “broken people” since they’re much easier “spiritual captures” as I call them. But a person that’s SPIRITUALLY DELIVERED BY Jesus Christ from such demons is no longer a “spiritual capture” but becomes a spiritual VICTOR!

ALL humans have the fundamental right to be “respected”. For example, ALL humans have the right to go into a grocery store and buy their groceries in peace without store managers saying: “Oh, I’m sorry, only blonde-haired people can enter into the store today”. Every human has a right to be respected for biological, physical traits they can NOT help. 

But when people start demanding rights for things that they technically CAN help and that are UNBIBLICAL and UNREASONABLE in scope, (“I should have the right to have sex in public”, “I should have the right to murder my unborn baby for convenience”, “I should have the right to use the womens’ bathroom, even though I’m not a true/physical woman”), Houston, we’ve got a problem!

Same-sex activity/transgenderism is actually A BEHAVIOR, not an “inherent trait!” Whereas, heterosexuality is an inherent trait. John-Hopkins research has previously pointed out that homosexuality/transgenderism is NURTURE (social environment) rather than NATURE (biology). There is NO gay gene and folks, they won’t EVER find one, because it simply DOES NOT EXIST!

And the day when the “Leftist Extreme” CLAIM they “have” found one? Trust me, that’ll be the day that they’ll have to resort to “faking” the scientific find of finding one, just like they FAKED the “find” of the “Missing Link” – Ida – a mere skull of a LEMUR, HA! https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100302131719.htm

So what’s the moral of the story here, folks? Don’t believe ANYTHING the Secular Media tells ya. Heck, even those SO-CALLED pictures of the planet Mars and this or that find on Mars, with all the pictures being black and white and really, really “hazy?” I almost laugh every single time and say to myself: FAKE, FAKE, FAKEZOID! To me, the ONLY thing that’s true is the gospel of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ Almighty! 

“God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”

– Romans 3:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drug use in TV shows: The Latest Preconditioning Of The Masses

George Orwell pic

Ever since 9/11, Americans have been systematically pre-conditioned by the elite to believe whatever the media and gov’t has LED them to believe. And in the past 5 years or so, it’s ONLY gotten worse, folks!

Not only are we now being INVADED by the “transgender mafia” in today’s mass media, who, for example, believe that biological gender is no longer “scientific fact”. It would rather seem that in TODAY’S godless society, gender is now determined by FEELINGS and NOT by actual biological reality!

But along with the pro-homosexual, pro-transgender, pro-socialism, pro-abortion and pro-immigration etc. “Movements”, there is also YET ANOTHER “Movement” that is SILENTLY HAPPENING….the secret movement to GLAMORIZE/LEGITIMIZE drug use! And the elite come at us SO subtly with it, that we don’t even really see it happening!

Several of today’s TV and Movie Producers want to try to trick US (the American people) into thinking that THEIR movies and TV shows reflect the “natural reality” that is today’s world and also that they’re just producing movies and TV shows that viewers are DEMANDING. But that’s not true, folks! Because the Luciferian elite has “an agenda”: and their “agenda” is to DESENSITIZE US to things that DISPLEASE GOD (such as abortion, murder, drug use, transgenderism, violence, etc.)

In fact, when I most recently did a Google search to try to find out how many of today’s TV shows feature drug use, I was ASTOUNDED!

But again…….it didn’t really surprise me much since there have been several “mini-drug epidemics” in various pockets across the U.S.! So it begs of question…….Were these drug-addicted TV characters produced as a result OF the “mini-drug epidemics” across various pockets of the U.S. or were the “mini-drug epidemics” actually caused BY some of these TV shows that try to “glamorize/legitimize” drug use and/or the drug-dealing/using “lifestyle?”

People keep saying that it’s ONLY “young people” that are “impressionable”. But guess what, folks? People IN GENERAL are “impressionable”. Because if they weren’t, society (as a whole) NEVER, EVER would’ve accepted the “concepts” of 3rd-trimester abortions, homosexual “marriage”, transgenderism, and the “idea” of letting a full-grown man into a ladies bathroom! Think about it, folks!

For a long time, the American public has been lied to! Through music, movies, court cases, newspaper/magazine articles, books and TV shows, the “godless elite” has attempted to wreck havoc on EVERY American soul!

They WANT us to believe that homosexuality/transgenderism is “good”, they WANT us to believe that abortion is “okay”, they WANT us to believe that socialism is “great” and that religion is “evil”, just like they now WANT us to believe that drugs are “good”, “glamorous” and “OK”…….

Look no further than the following TV shows and/or movie characters to see exactly what I mean:

1). Wendy Case in Sons of Anarchy – addicted to METH & HEROIN

2). Bubbles in The Wire – addicted to HEROIN

3). Renton in Trainspotting – addicted to HEROIN

4). Tyrone Biggums in Chapelle’s Show – addicted to CRACK

5). Christoper Molisanti in Sopranos – addicted to HEROIN, etc.

6). Sherlock in Sherlock Holmes – addicted to COCAINE & MORPHINE

7). Dr. House on House – addicted to VICODIN

8). Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad – addicted to METH & HEROIN, etc.

9). ENTIRE CAST of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – addicted to INHALANTS, CRACK, ECSTASY, COCAINE, etc.

10). George Jung in Blow – addicted to HEROIN & COCAINE, etc.

11). Jack Bauer in 24 – addicted to HEROIN

12). Philip Pearson in Travelers – addicted to HEROIN

Plus many, many more! And as you can see, 8 of the 12 (over 60%) have to do with HEROIN ADDICTION while 3 of the 12 (25%) have to do with COCAINE ADDICTION.

Drugs were once frowned upon in society. But now…….there seems to be this slow “societal shift”……Now, the Luciferian elite are trying to make drugs seem “cool”, “fun” and “in style”.

Many people today don’t have “time” to read their bibles or spend time with the Lord in prayer. But hey…..they have time for their “movies” and their “TV shows”, am I right? And THAT folks, is what the Luciferian elite is banking on.

Research even shows what happens to our brains when we see visual and verbal images of something over and over and over again in the mass media; we become desensitized to it to the point where we don’t even hardly notice it anymore. And THAT folks, is ALSO another thing the Luciferian elite is banking on.

People’s minds are impressionable (ESPECIALLY young children’s and *UNSAVED* people’s minds). And if a person or child has a favorite TV/movie character, they can quickly become *subconsciously OBSESSED* with said character……..and…….over time, began to EMPATHIZE with the character (and if the subconscious obsession creeps up deeply enough), even start to BECOME like the “character”. And if the character takes drugs……..well……it’s really NO WONDER there’s such a “drug epidemic” here in America and also in today’s global world. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/heroin-use-in-u-s-reaches-alarming-20-year-high

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/12/17/drug-overdose-deaths-increased-by-33-percent-in-past-5-years.html

These movie and TV characters that are “regular and/or occasional” drug users/dealers? It’s PSYCHOLOGICAL PRE-CONDITIONING AT ITS MOST FINEST, folks! The Luciferian elite is TRYING to program people’s brains to think that pot is OK, cocaine is OK, heroin is OK (or, at the VERY least, “not that bad” and can “easily be overcome”). But then, people in real life find out just how TRULY ADDICTING the stuff is. And by then, their physical body and their whole life is “seemingly” ruined. Because once a person is IN the deep woes of addiction, they VERY RARELY come out of it…….Unless they’re really, really, REALLY determined to overcome their addiction with the help of Jesus Christ/etc., that is……

I hear liberals ALL THE TIME try to say that the media does NOT effect people. If that were so, then tell me WHY there’s SO MANY people on Youtube and other video-sharing sites doing PARODIES/IMPRESSIONS of MOVIES/TV SHOWS/OTHER PEOPLE. Or, just look at how many people just DROOL and OBSESS OVER and IDOLIZE famous celebrities and SCREAM IN EXCITEMENT at the mere SITE of that person/those people walking down the street/etc. Because hey, the “media/entertainment industry doesn’t effect people at all (mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally speaking), right?” Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

No, a movie or TV show (in and of itself) doesn’t DIRECTLY cause a person to use/experiment with drugs. However, to many, it serves as what I call the “CURIOSITY GATEWAY”. That’s how it all gets started. They get CURIOUS: “Does this drug or that drug REALLY give you an incredible high, like that one TV character had in that show?”, followed by “is this drug REALLY as harmful as experts SAY it is?” And sadly, some even think to themselves: Hey! I want to try this drug that this one TV character does. It looks FUN! And then it all goes from there.

People (as a whole) like to (and even tend to) emulate what they see on movies and TV. It’s a skewed reality, folks! The general American public is led to believe that WHAT they see on all these degraded/sinful TV shows/movies is NORMAL when in all actuality, it’s the OUTLIER. Trust me, not every 4th or 5th person of every single family is using drugs. But that’s what some of these “drug-using” TV shows would have people try to believe.

But again, what lies at the HEART of drug addiction (be in TV format, movies, OR in real-life)? The answer is SIN! One thing I actually LIKE about the show LOST is that it actually attempts (although somewhat vaguely) to show drug use as it REALLY is: HARMFUL & DESTRUCTIVE (both to users and to everyone around them!) None of the other TV shows I’ve seen featuring drug use had EVER done that (to my knowledge). So atleast ONE show out there attempts to tell the TRUTH about drug use; not only that it’s SIN but that it’s DAMAGING and DESTROYS PEOPLE’S LIVES!

All the others? Especially the last one I mentioned on my list up above? Seems like they’re all just justifying it and making excuses. Now…….if they were to show drug use in a TRULY BAD LIGHT and showed each character getting some sort of HELP/MOTIVATION overcoming their addictions, (which the show LOST also did, btw), then that would certainly be ONE thing. But if they’re attempting to show drug use in a GOOD LIGHT or a ‘LEGITIMATE LIGHT” (“drugs are good, drugs are fun, he/she has legitimate reason to use drugsit pays to use/deal drugs”), then they’ve done every single American (as well as global human soul) a SERIOUS DISSERVICE!

Ya know, I keep hoping that somebody out there will come up with a Christian TV series that attempts to show sin for what it REALLY is (Sin) and that shows that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to be FORGIVEN and SET FREE from “Sin”, ESPECIALLY a Christian-themed show (similar to LOST) that attempts to show drug use for what it REALLY is (SIN – sin that DESTROYS lives and DESTROYS families!) Because maybe, just maybe, if more TV shows and movies attempted to show drugs in a TRUE LIGHT, there would be FAR less glamorization of it and FAR less “curiosity attempts”.

But again, like I said, it’s not really a state problem, a nation problem or even a POLITICAL problem, it is a SIN PROBLEM!

Believe it or not, DEMONS are behind drug use. Just like they are ALSO behind the “idea” FOR TV shows/movies which FEATURE drug use in a “legitimate light” [Think Travelers, for instance]. Demons rob a person’s SOUL! But in fact, that is their “spiritual job” to do so; to try to take as much LIFE out of a person’s soul that they possibly can! Because the more LIFE they can suck out of a person’s soul, the better chance they have of PERMANENTLY overcoming that person’s soul. In fact, the SECULAR world doesn’t call it “overcoming one’s demons” for NOTHING. Think about it, folks! WHERE do you think that saying actually comes from!?

Many people who experience drug use oftentimes describe “demonic encounters”. WHY do you think that is, folks? Do you think it’s just MERE COINCIDENCE? THINK AGAIN!!!!!!

Drugs and Crime (especially crime RELATED to drugs) are actually a SIN PROBLEM, and not so much a SOCIETAL PROBLEM (although that too, for what it’s worth). So UNTIL America (and the world) has dealt with drug use as a SIN PROBLEM, I can’t forsee the “drug problem” going away anytime soon!

And what’s scary to me about the media/entertainment industry (as a whole) is that it’s starting to create this “Alternative Reality”. The lines between fantasy and reality are becoming BLURRED. In today’s “liberal world”, biological gender is no longer biological gender but is based on FEELINGS. That’s really scary, folks. I wonder what biology textbooks will look like in 10 years: “There IS no gender” and/or “Gender is not determined until the age of 5. Brain determines gender, NOT biological anatomy”.

But again…….the way this society is going (on a global scale), it probably won’t be too much longer now before ALL drugs become “legal” and likely even ENCOURAGED among many on the the liberal left. Think back how, 10 years ago, the word “transgender” didn’t even exist. Now it’s everywhere and a person is just a “racist bigot” if they DON’T “accept transgender ideology”.

The SAME exact approach is likely going to happen with drugs/drug use. In about 10 years time (if not much sooner), drugs will likely become legal and any person that despises drugs/doesn’t use them/has negative viewpoints towards them will be seen as “totally backwards”.

The TV shows WEEDS, Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy pretty much started a “mini-movement” within the TV industry to “glamorize drug dealing/using” and many TV shows followed. DOES ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE FIND THIS FACT DISTURBING AT ALL? EVEN JUST A LITTLE?

In fact, my heart just FEARS for the types of movies and TV shows that are coming next. HOW MANY MORE TV SHOWS AND MOVIES WILL HAVE TO FEATURE DRUG USE IN A POSITIVE LIGHT BEFORE PEOPLE START NOTICING (IF AT ALL) AND BOYCOTTING THE TV SHOWS, AS A RESULT?

The problem is that NOT only is drug use a SIN, but that MANY CHRISTIANS out there are NOT standing up AGAINST movies and TV shows such as that! Which is WHY many of those “drug-glorifying” movies and TV shows like that are ABLE to PROLIFERATE in today’s mass media!

You (dear readers of this blog) might not be part of the PROBLEM of drug use in the media, but you can certainly be part of the SOLUTION! We ALL need to band and pray together that all of these ungodly TV shows will LOSE their appeal on the masses and also that there will be a GREAT spiritual awakening of people that HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS and that REALIZE that there’s a HECK of alot more to life than “Sin” (sinful practices such as drug use, etc.)

And no matter WHAT side of the “drug war” you’re on (rather you’re a soul that’s currently addicted to drugs, are adamantly anti-drug, deal drugs, advocate their use in the media, etc.), I pray that Jesus Christ will abhold you, HEAL you from within and SET YOU FREE FROM YOUR SIN(S)! For HE is the ONLY thing in this universe that satisfies! HE is the ONLY way to Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins! And HE is the ONLY being in the universe with the power of Life and Death in his hands!

John 3:16 [Book of John, Chapter 3, Verse 16 in the New Testament] PROCLAIMS: “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whomever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”.

Transgenderism: A Mental Illness

Transgenderism is just THE RAGE today, here in America. From books to television to movies to magazine covers……even in public policy debates, it’s EVERYWHERE……But is it “normal”, as the media would try to have us believe?

Down below, a former John Hopkins Psychiatrist-in-Chief CONFIRMS that “transgenderism” is A MENTAL ILLNESS:

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-transgender-mental-disorder-sex-change

WHY is it a mental illness? According to Dr. Paul R. McHugh, it’s really no different than a person who suffers from disorders like “anorexia”, for example. With anorexia, the “perceived body condition” does NOT match the ACTUAL, biological condition of the body. And in many ways, transgenderism is really no different. A man who thinks he’s a woman or a woman who thinks she’s a man does NOT match the “biological REALITY”.

And like Dr. McHugh points out in the article, NO matter of surgery is going to change a person GENETICALLY……..ONLY cosmetically……and for those unfortunate souls that DO go through with “sex-reassignment surgery”, the suicide rate is 20 TIMES HIGHER than it is with non-transgender individuals.

Not to mention that Dr. McHugh ALSO notes that in young children who felt they “might” be transgender, 70-80% spontaneously LOST those feelings over time. Therefore, administering to young children (in general) hormone-blocking “therapies” before they’re fully developed is “close to child abuse”, like it or not. And while it may be “unintentional child abuse”, it is STILL “mental child abuse”, nonetheless. He calls transgenderism a “disorder of assumption”.

But sadly, instead of getting these poor gender-confused folks the psychological/mental help that they NEED, they are instead forced to believe by modern-day society that their “mental perceptions” are normal. But how can that BE? If a girl believes she’s a cat, should we allow her surgery to become more “cat-like?” Or if a man believes he’s a quadriplegic, should we then amputate FULLY HEALTHY LIMBS just to make his “false mental perception” happy?

There are indeed some VERY dangerous long-term implications of the “no gender” movement today. Look at Target, for example. If we erode gender, what’s next? Men can now enter into women’s facilities, PERIOD, they don’t even have to be DRESSED like a woman! Does that SCARE YOU? It SHOULD!

And Target is just the starting point! Soon, MANY public places will want in on the action of the “no gender” movement. I’m surprised and appalled at the number of people that aren’t even offended by such things! Don’t they KNOW and REALIZE just how “dangerous” it is? We are now living in a modern-day world that DENIES BIOLOGY! Boys are no longer allowed to be just boys, and girls are no longer allowed to be just girls. Scary, indeed!

Today’s younger generation is tomorrow’s future. And with the LGBT activists confusing kids at a very early age, it’s NO WONDER today’s kids are so “confused” about their gender identity where no such “confusion” should even exist!

This LGBT/No-Gender Movement is DESTROYING our kids, folks! As Jews and Christians, we need to fight back against the spiritual and moral onslaught. But we also need to realize THIS as well: It’s not just a mental and moral battle, here. It’s a SPIRITUAL ONE:

“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

Many people don’t realize this, but individuals who believe they’re something that goes against their natural biology are NOT ONLY mentally deceived but SPIRITUALLY DECEIVED as well. Satan wants control of the hearts and minds of people. Why? Because he’s angry and knows his time is short.

Therefore, a person that hasn’t completely given their mind, heart, body and spirit to Jesus Christ/Yeshua are “easy pickins” for the devil. In fact, Satan’s demons have NO PROBLEM deceiving a person who isn’t right with Christ.

Note: If you do NOT believe in demons/demonic possession, check out the following video! It proves BEYOND A DOUBT that demons/demonic infestations are REAL! The people in the audience are just SCREAMING with sheer terror at the 4:05-4:26 mark! This is NO JOKE, folks! She is TRULY possessed and her tongue is GLUED to the microphone! Yes, glued…….in an unnatural/demonic manner:

However, WHEN a “Christian” or “Jewish” individual CLAIMS that they are LGBT and that “Jesus is okay with it“, you KNOW (as a true, biblical believer in Christ), that something’s not right. Because either they’re NOT truly saved in the name of Christ, or they’re a “plant” by the LGBT activist community to deceive Jews/Christians (sorry, but I just had to throw that one out there).

We now live in such a time where NOT ONLY is the LGBT activist community trying to legalize and/or legitimatize homosexuality at ALL levels (especially in gov’t) but also in a time where many of the LGBT “activists” will LIE/STOP AT NOTHING to achieve this goal. Let us examine the following cases:

7). 10 Times The Left Pushed Anti-LGBT Hoaxes

http://www.dailywire.com/news/5088/11-times-left-pushed-anti-lgbt-hoaxes-ben-shapiro

 

Sadly, the truth is that ALL individuals that participate in LGBT behavior or have LGBT type “thoughts” are under DEMONIC OPPRESSION. What does that mean in plain English, you may ask? It means that demonic SPIRITS are silently infiltrating that person’s mind, heart, body and spirit. Why? Because Satan’s goal is to kill, steal and destroy.

Look at marriage, for example. A union between a man and a woman where “natural procreation” occurs (if applicable). Satan HATES that. So he created “gay marriage”. Also take a look at the “Traditional Family” in God’s eyes: husband, wife and if applicable, children. Satan also hates THAT. So he created “gay adoption”. Basically, Satan hates whatever God designed! And he wants to PROFANE God’s design! So how does he does that, you may ask? Answer: TRANSGENDERISM!

As more and more people are waking up to the fact that homosexuality IS a mental illness/not biologically natural, Satan is angry and knows he must come up with an EVEN FURTHER MORALLY DEPRIVED APPROACH. So what better approach than the concept of “no gender/transgenderism”, right, folks? Because if you erase gender, WHAT ELSE IS LEFT? It’s just a wide-open question mark…….

What’s next? Will society start printing off textbooks that DENY BIOLOGY and spread full-out biological LIES? BEHAVIOR DOES NOT IDENTIFY BIOLOGY! REPEAT: BEHAVIOR DOES **NOT***, IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, DETERMINE ACTUAL PHYSICAL, BIOLOGICAL REALITY!

A man can think he’s a woman or a woman can think she’s a man ALL DAY LONG but at the end of the day, a man is still a man and a woman is still a woman, I’m sorry to say. Not EVEN a sex change is going to change a person’s BIOLOGICAL REALITY!

Therefore, when a person “mentally believes” that they are the OPPOSITE biological gender that they were born as, is it NOT mental illness? And if it’s mental illness, then we, as a society, need to start treating it as one, instead of PROMOTING THEIR MENTAL DELUSIONS! I say that with love, folks. I really do.

PROMOTING their mental delusions does these poor gender-confused people NO GOOD. In fact, it only manages to FURTHER HARM THEM, emotionally, physically, mentally, SPIRITUALLY, **and** psychologically. Would we allow anorexics not to eat? Ofcourse not! So why should we, as a society, further allow gender-confused folks to have/suffer their delusions, when it can be cured through Jesus and psychological/mental therapy?

Because truth be told, ONLY Jesus Christ can set them free from such “delusions”. Jesus Christ can save ANYONE from ANYTHING. The problem though is that alot of people LACK FAITH. They lack faith that he has the POWER to change them. And so BECAUSE they lack faith that Jesus Christ has the power to change them from within, to their own natural/biological reality, they don’t even try. And that’s tragic.

The same goes for homosexuals. Some have claimed that they prayed to Jesus to change them and weren’t changed. But did they REALLY pray and have the faith that Jesus has the TRUE POWER to HEAL THEM? How much of “true faith” did they REALLY, truly have? And how much did they TRULY try to change?

Because truth be told, they have to make an EFFORT to change, as well. They can’t just make a half-hearted meager prayer “oh Lord, change me” and expect to be changed the next day. They also have to truly WANT to change and to put in the effort as well. Jesus Christ  must know that they’re SERIOUS about wanting to change, afterall.

Take a person who’s an alcoholic, for example. One night, they pray to Jesus to NOT be an alcoholic anymore “Lord, I don’t want to drink anymore” but then, they don’t really put any long-term effort into it the next day and on or think about ways in which they can CHANGE their drinking habits or stop, altogether (such as drinking soda instead of alcohol, etc.) Therefore, to Jesus, their prayer is “half-hearted” and “not honorable/humble enough”.

HOWEVER…….if an alcoholic is on his knees, crying, pouring out his heart to Jesus, saying “please Jesus, help me, Lord. I’ll do ANYTHING to stop drinking. I’ll attend AA meetings. I’ll do whatever you want. Just please help me to stop drinking” and then, the next morning, starts making an ACTIVE CHANGE in their life to try to stop drinking, Jesus Christ is going to HONOR that prayer.

So it is with transgender/homosexual individuals. If they start to make an ACTIVE CHANGE in their life while at the same time having the FAITH that Jesus CAN and WILL change them, their prayers will be answered, I guarantee it! And by active change, I mean LONG-TERM change. It doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a process; a process of physical, mental AND spiritual transformation.

But yet, one of the problems today is that people make a “Jesus that they’re comfortable with”, such as “my Jesus would never do this or that”. But the PROBLEM with that, is that WHEN people themselves define what Jesus would or wouldn’t do (WITHOUT the bible as a moral measuring stick), what they then come up with (as a result) is an UNBIBLICAL JESUS. Therefore, if someone says “the Jesus I worship accepts ALL active homosexuals”, they’re sadly not worshiping the Jesus Christ of the bible but a different “Jesus”, altogether. 

And over time, the moral situation in this country (and around the world) is ONLY gonna get worse, folks! So be prepared. And once again, remember: 

“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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MUSIC: A WAR FOR YOUR SOUL!

Have you ever wondered why songs (in general) have a long “introduction” before the lyrics come about? Or also why a certain song and/or songs get stuck in your head all the time? Do you think this is all just mere COINCIDENCE?

Songs (by nature) are/were DESIGNED (by the spirit world) to put the listener into a VERY, VERY DEEP “trance-like meditative state”. The question is, does it put them into a GOOD trance (where they are motivated to worship the Lord Jesus, in spirit and in truth) or does it put them in a BAD trance (where it encourages a person to say/think/do things that go AGAINST the bible?)

I’ve honestly had songs (and/or parts of songs) that were stuck in my head for HOURS, DAYS, and WEEKS! And I kept having to ask myself WHY! And then, when I finally succeeded in getting THAT particular song unstuck out of my head, YET ANOTHER song would get stuck in my head for DAYS on end!

Or worse yet, I sometimes get the case of what I call “SONG FEVER”, where I have to listen to a song over and over and over again…….and if I DON’T listen to the current song on repeat, my mind starts to go stir-crazy! “What is this?”, I aggravatingly think to myself. “This is madness! What the hey!” And I used to think it was just mere “coincidence”. Little did I know it is actually HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE that I was/am experiencing! (A warfare of THE MIND!)

Take tribal African voodoo, for instance. Many “pop songs” are today BASED on voodoo (yes, voodoo!). Lets look through a few examples, here…..

1). “Sympathy for the Devil” by Rolling Stones, 1968

Note: If you slow it down and listen to the beginning, it’s CLEARLY voodoo beats being played in the song, followed by what sounds like “monkey/jungle calls”. The “monkey calls” are probably some hidden thing to “summon demons/demon spirits” and/or to display the “theory of Evolution”, somehow.

And here’s another VERY popular song from the 80’s which has DEFINITE voodoo in it, from start to finish (it even has “Satanic growls” in it!)

2). “Gloria Estefan – Rhythm Is Gonna Get You” – 1987

There’s also THIS song (which clearly has voodoo beats in the background, as well, starting at 0:40 and again at 0:55):

3). “Come & Get It” by Selena Gomez, 2013 or so

In fact, nearly ALL “popular songs” of today have what’s called “Syncopation”. Now………“What’s syncopation?”, some may ask. Answer: it is basically a “disturbance” or “interruption” of the REGULAR, natural flow of rhythm. In other words, it takes “natural rhythm” and makes it UN-NATURAL rhythm (in other words, rhythm’s that off-beat).

Here, Christian Berdahl explains it in a little more detail:

So basically, whenever you get a song stuck in your head, 9 times out of 10, it’s because Satan and demons are behind it! Remember, Satan is BEHIND the “Music & Entertainment Industry”, today! Even most of today’s “CHRISTIAN MUSIC” today is “suspect”. Why? Because it honestly sounds no different than “contemporary” music!

Why? Because it ALSO (as a whole today) uses “Syncopation”, just like all of today’s “worldly music” does. Don’t believe me? Do an experiment. Flip through all the car radio stations. Then go to the Christian music station. Notice anything different? My guess is no. If you didn’t know AHEAD of time that it WAS the Christian station, would you have mistaken it for a “secular” radio station? Be honest with yourself!

Satan is “implied” in the bible to have been “full of music” (BEFORE “the fall from heaven”). Therefore, Satan knows music like his back hand. He knows it inside and out. And so it’s really no wonder THAT he uses “music” as one of his primary weapons to “deceive the masses”.

Okay, now I want you to conduct another “experiment”. Listen to your “favorite song”. How does the song make you FEEL? Does it humble you before the Lord Jesus Christ and make you want to worship him? Or does it make you think of OTHER things, besides Jesus and the bible? Be COMPLETELY honest with yourselves!

And if it’s CHRISTIAN music you’re listening to, does it REALLY encourage you to worship Jesus, in spirit and in truth? Or do all the back-beats, etc. DISTRACT YOU from doing so and make you more focused on the beat, rather than on the message? Be honest with yourself!

Many think that ALL “Christian music” is just fine and dandy. But only most recently have folks come to realize that EVEN “Christian music” is suspect these days (sadly enough). So don’t fool yourselves! Just because a piece of Christian music has the label “Christian” on it does NOT make it “truly Christian”!

For example, many “Christian” female vocalists sing all “sensual”, as though they’re singing to a LOVER, instead of Jesus Christ! (I’m sorry, but it’s true!) And with all the drum beats, back-beats, break-beats, clap-beats, I’d never know most of these songs were a supposedly “Christian” song!

Examples?

1). “Lauren Daigle – First” (This is sung the way a woman would sing to a lover!)

2). “TobyMac – Feel It” (This is sung as though the goal is to be like Bruno Mars!)

ETC….

But then again, what is a TRUE “Christian song”, by definition? Answer: It is one that completely clears the mind (in a GOOD sense), has NO “syncopation” or “background beats/distractions” and ENCOURAGES the Christian listener to worship Jesus (in spirit and in truth):

“Let Them See You” by JJ Weeks Band

Notice the difference there, folks? But again, I’m not personally judging or bashing the two above Christian artists (only Jesus knows their hearts), I’m just saying that the “syncopated-type music” and the *sultry*-sounding lyrics distracts from THE ACTUAL MESSAGE OF SALVATION!

There’s even this whole movement among the Christians today that we (as a whole), must become more “wordly” in our music and in our messages in order to “draw in more people from the world/those that are unsaved”.

HOWEVER, WHEN Christians or “the church” become more “worldly” in their “music” or in their “doings”, they’re actually doing themselves a SERIOUS disservice, as it’s showing the “worldly/unsaved people of the world” the message that: “Hey, Christians are just as worldly as WE are, so I guess there’s no real need to change and repent of our sins!

Even “country music” is not immune from Satan’s grip!

But in fact, let me take this one step further. A popular music artist (who openly worships Satan) has come out and admitted that each of her performances is “a sermon”. Interesting. Therefore, if we can apply her words to ALL secular music these days, and ALL secular music is “individual sermons”, then it most certainly sheds light on the fact that SATAN DESIGNED MUSIC AS ***SPIRITUAL WARFARE!***

Now that’s a tough message for most Christians to grasp (especially those born in the 80s and 90s!) They like their Def Leppard, Bruce Springstein, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Madonna, REO Speedwagon, Mister Mister, Poison, TLC, Metallica, Motley Crue, etc. But rarely do they ever look at all the symbolism (and “spiritual agendas”) BEHIND the music!

Most people might thinking that listening to music is an “innocent thing”. But believe me folks, most music was designed by Satan & his demons for ***HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!!!!!!!***!!! And not only that, but did you know that nearly ALL music artists sell their souls to the Devil for money, fortune & fame? (It’s true!) Don’t believe me? Watch the following “rocumentary”, as it WILL open up your eyes as to what’s REALLY going on behind the scenes of the music industry & L.A./Hollywood!

Here is parts 1 through 5 on Youtube:

Now…..am I saying that ALL music is bad? No, ofcourse not. Music has been shown in studies to improve mood, sleep quality, memory, brain activity, etc. However, one should be more mindful from now on about just WHAT type of music they listen to. Because remember that music was designed by Satan for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Remember that Satan USES music to “deceive the masses!” Plus remember that Satan uses music to try to take you AWAY from God/Jesus Christ!

But one of the BEST ways to “test” a song is to critically examine the LYRICS! (Please also remember that many popular songs of today have lyrics with “hidden meanings!”) Critically examine the lyrics and then ask yourself if it’s something you should be listening to or not. But again, don’t just look at the lyrics, examine the BEAT of the song, as well.

Example: If it’s a “Christian song” but has a “hip hop/break-beat” (and music video) that’s set up like a Bruno Mars song, then that should tell you something right there. Or if it’s a “Christian song” but you’re more focused on the “beat” or “the drums” or the “artist/sultry voice” than the “message”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

After watching both documentaries (both Christian Berdahl’s “The Distraction Dilemna” and “They Sold Their Souls For Rock N’ Roll”), my spiritual eyes were thoroughly opened and so NOW, when I flip through the radio stations and I hear songs that Satan originally intended to deceive people with, I am now armed with the spiritual knowledge of what the “true meanings” of those songs are and I am no longer deceived BY them! And trust me, it’s nothing short of a spiritually liberating feeling in Christ!

So……what types of music SHOULD a true born-again Christian be listening to, you may ask? Well, here’s my personal, spiritual recommendations:

1). Christian music that uplifts your spirit and ENCOURAGES you to worship Jesus in spirit and in truth (In other words, music that has you TRULY focused on the gospel/Jesus and NOT on the voice, the beat or the “rhythm”)

2). Romantic love songs that do NOT glorify fornication or anything else that’s unbiblical

3). Classical or uplifting instrumentals

I myself for years & years had been a long-time fan of Trance/Electronic, etc. music. But after critically examining the fact that if you slow it down, it sounds like a slow, repetitive voodoo beat highly spiritually disturbs me!

In fact, I even said a troubled-in-my-heart prayer to Jesus about it: Jesus, does it displease you that I occasionally listen to Trance/Electronic music, etc? and the answer I seemed to get back from him is THIS: “Does it encourage you to worship me at all? Or does it distract you & make you think of OTHER things, besides ME?”

Okay folks, I felt CONVICTED! And ever since then, I’ve severely limited my Trance/etc. listening! Because NOW, any time I listen to Trance etc. music, I can FEEL Jesus’s spiritual gaze upon me as if to say, “Feeling distracted, are we?” and I just can’t enjoy that type of music anymore! It just feels…….wrong!

Now……we’ve all heard that LUST can be a temptation or that TV/video games/food/drink can be a temptation. But can MUSIC also be a temptation? Answer: ABSOLUTELY! For after being “spiritually convicted” not to listen to Trance, etc. music anymore, I can’t tell ya HOW many times I’ve been “tempted” to listen to it! (And yes, sometimes I’ve given IN to the temptation to listen to it and then felt guilty & ashamed, afterwards!) 

Like, I really have to fight the urge to NOT listen to it, sometimes! It used to come as a natural habit to me…….Turn on the computer, hit the playlist, and give it a whirl! Believe me, it takes ALOT of spiritual discipline to NOT listen to our favorite music that actually spiritually DISTRACTS US and takes us AWAY from the gospel/Jesus Christ! I had to learn that the hard way!

Non-fornicating love songs, classical or uplifting instrumentals might not “seem” like they fully glorify Jesus. However……non-fornicating love songs can remind us of Jesus’s love for his church, while classical or uplifting instrumentals can remind us of the beauty of God’s creation, especially of “musical scales” in general. Many people don’t realize this but “music” is actually composed of mathematical algorithms! And our God (the God of the bible) is no doubt a “mathematical God!”

But that aside, did you know that they did a study on “plant growth” vs. “music”. And not surprisingly enough, when “plants” listened to classical music, they THRIVED! But yet, when plants listened to “death metal”, they withered up and DIED! (And if I remember correctly, BOTH types of music were played at the exact same volume, in the study!)

Therefore, it stands to reason: if “plants” (which are “living”) thrive on classical music, why wouldn’t WE? Studies have shown, for example, that listening to classical music before a test can increase test scores! (It would be interesting to see how plants responded to the JJ Weeks Band or non-fornicating love songs!)

But again, I digress. The moral of the story here is that MUSIC AFFECTS OUR SOULS – either for the positive or the negative. Therefore, it’s up to us to try to only listen to music that UPLIFTS our minds, hearts, bodies & spirits IN Jesus and that does NOT distract us from the gospel in any way, shape or form! I hope this post has given you something to think about, when it comes to music! What you listen to really DOES affect you SPIRITUALLY – rather you realize it or not! So choose wisely! Amen.
