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!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AADHAAR: Mark of the Beast Comes to INDIA: (Mark of the Beast, PART FIVE)

If you haven’t done so already, please read my following FOUR blog posts, as they will help to better explain in much broader detail about what this current FIFTH blog post is talking about, concerning The Mark of the Beast “System”! They are ALL part of a Mark of The Beast “Series”, listed IN ORDER! They can be found HERE:

1). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/25/the-last-final-temptation-of-mankind/

2). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/27/the-seal-of-god-vs-the-mark-of-satan/

3). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/08/mark-of-the-beast-foreshadowing/

4). https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/29/chinas-social-credit-score-coming-to-a-town-near-you/

The current post you’re now seeing is PART FIVE of the 5-Part Series! And it ofcourse centers around what’s now happening in INDIA! Basically, INDIA’S version of the “Social Credit Score” is much, much worse! Imagine for a minute if China’s Social Credit Score (in and of itself) was “high on crack” and that’s pretty much what INDIA’S version of it is! Basically, if you thought CHINA’S version was bad, just wait until you hear about INDIA’S version of “The Social Credit Score!”

Here is both a Christian video commentary AND an official India government website that better explain India’s version of it in more detail: [Please note: the “Hindu-run” India government website down below the video does NOT talk about the ETERNAL SPIRITUAL DANGERS of AADHAAR and tries to tout it off as a “good thing!” SO BEWARE, FOLKS!]

https://uidai.gov.in/

But folks, one thing is certain. In China, a low social credit score means you can’t fly out of the country, board a train, attend prestigious universities or do many OTHER things!

Although right now, China is trying to tout it off as a “humanistic approach”, or claiming to encourage “better human and/or consumer *behavior* in China”. For example, it’s a “point system” where you can get “negative points” for:

  • Jaywalking
  • Not paying bills on time
  • Smoking in a non-smoking area
  • Bad driving and/or not stopping in front of crosswalks
  • Trying to ride trains with no tickets
  • Spending too long playing video games
  • Having high credit card debt?
  • Wasting money on frivolous purchases
  • Posting on social media (negative things about gov’t)
  • Friends/family members of your posting or saying negative things about Gov’t
  • Refusing to serve in the military
  • Fraud or embezzlement
  • Spreading fake news
  • ETC.

So sure, on the “surface”, the “Social Credit Score” might seem like a “good thing”. But over time, it will become more and more “Orwellian”. Now….. for those of you who don’t know what I mean by that statement, please read the book entitled “1984” by George C. Orwell that was published in June of 1949! Yes, the book was written a long time ago but interestingly enough, you’d think it was written just a couple of years ago since practically almost everything Orwell talked about in that book CAME TRUE in just the last few years! WOW! You can buy it here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/1984-Signet-Classics-George-Orwell/dp/0451524934?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1

Therefore, China’s “Social Credit Score” starts out “innocently enough” and then gets more and more invasive and “Orwellian” over time. But INDIA’s Social Credit Score system (called AADHAAR) by comparison, is far, far worse! Because INDIA’s “Social Credit Score” system seems to NOT ONLY be based on “behavior” but on behavior, finances AND loyalty of the Gov’t/Gov’t System!

Here’s a list of things that are “tied in” to the AADHAAR system:

  • A 12-digit number
  • Banking
  • Travel/Passports
  • Purchases
  • Bill Payments
  • Medical Payments
  • All Personal Document Information
  • Voter Card Linking
  • Monthly Pension
  • Digital Life Certificate
  • Mobile Number
  • Driver’s License
  • Investments
  • Existing Bank Account Holders
  • Proof of Address & Identity
  • PAN Card & It Return (whatever that means?)
  • ETC.

And according to ANOTHER India website (http://vikaspedia.in/e-governance/online-citizen-services/government-to-citizen-services-g2c/all-about-aadhaar/17-benefits-of-aadhaar-card), here is what the “proponents” of AADHAAR have to say about it:

“Aadhaar program was launched with a main objective to provide **UNIVERSAL IDENTITY** to every Indian resident. People can now get the card with much ease as its acceptance as a mandatory document for various initiatives has been officially made. In addition to this it will help in reducing the corruption since every individual carries only **ONE UNIQUE NUMBER**.

Considering the increasing acceptance of Aadhaar card it is must for everyone to get it issued. It is believed that the card will further be given more importance as more and more government *schemes* are being launched requiring it as a MANDATORY DOCUMENT“.

Did you read that, folks? They want every Indian citizen to have a UNIVERSAL I.D.! And they will each have ONE UNIQUE NUMBER! And this “SYSTEM” will eventually be MANDATORY!

Now remember folks: The Devil (Satan) wants to STEAL, KILL & DESTROY! The last book of the bible, Revelation, says that “Satan is angry and knows he has but a short time”. In other words, Satan is ANGRY with ALL of mankind BECAUSE he knows that he has a VERY short amount of time before he and his army are DEFEATED by Jesus and Jesus’s heavenly army DURING The Battle of Armageddon! Therefore, Satan KNOWS he must get in as MUCH spiritual deception into the world and INTO as many people’s HEARTS/BRAINS as he possibly can “while he still has time!” That’s WHY things on the Earth are getting eviler and eviler and eviler BY THE DAY!

So now think about this, folks. Really, truly think about this. IF you are (or theoretically were) a Chinese citizen today living in CHINA, and don’t think that “communism” is such a good thing AND you were a “Christian”, you would (or will soon be getting) a VERY LOW “Social Credit Score” in NO TIME! Are you prepared to handle that? Can you and/or your family deal with that? Is your faith in Christ STRONG ENOUGH to WITHSTAND the “Social Credit System” and any consequences that come from “getting a LOW SCORE?” I pray that it IS!

And IF you are (or theoretically were) an Indian citizen living today in INDIA, you would soon (or will soon) discover that NOT enrolling in the Biometric AADHAAR System will soon put YOU and/or your family at “odds” with the India Gov’t! And WHEN and IF that happens, AND you are a “Christian” (part of the Indian MINORITY), can you just IMAGINE what’s gonna happen to you (as a Christian and/or as a “Gov’t Resister?”) Are YOU and/or your family prepared to deal with the CONSEQUENCES? Is your faith in Christ STRONG ENOUGH TO RESIST the AADHAAR SYSTEM? I pray that it IS!

My brothers and sisters in Christ (all around the world), you MUST understand THIS: No ONE country is going to NAME the Mark of the Beast “Mark of the Beast”. That would make things too easy! Too many people would know and catch on as to what it is! Satan KNOWS this! Therefore, they will “name it” SOMETHING ELSE! China calls it “The Social Credit Score”, India calls it the “AADHAAR SYSTEM”. America, Europe, U.K., & Canada may call it the “UNIVERSAL I.D. System”. But folks, the PRINCIPLE behind the system will still be the same: ABSOLUTE GLOBAL DOMINATION OF ALL THE EARTH’S INHABITANTS BY *ONE UNIFIED, UNIVERSAL SYSTEM!*

Here’s YET ANOTHER interesting aspect that alot of people haven’t mentioned. All of the “DATA” from both China’s Social Credit Score System AND from India’s AADHAAR Systems (according to my best intellectual and spiritual understanding) will be sent to the U.N. (United Nations!) Which isn’t really surprising since the U.N. is ALL ABOUT “Global Governance” (more about that later).

But folks, that’s really quite telling. In the “Left Behind” novels by Tim LaHaye & Jerry Jenkins, there is a “Global Force” called G.C. (standing for Global Community), which I believe was based off the actual U.N.! So in light of that, it’s interesting that all of the DATA shall be sent to the U.N.! Now…….for those of you who are wondering, where is the U.N. main headquarters located? I’m glad you asked! It’s located in New York, New York (United States). But there’s other “branches” of the U.N. that meet in other parts of the world (like in Switzerland, for instance). More about that later, as well.

The novel “1984” by British author George Orwell calls the government “Big Brother”. And on the most used slogans in the book says, “Big Brother Is Watching You”. And it’s almost like Mr. Orwell could see the future. Because most recently, the American gov’t got in cahoots with the American people over it’s NSA (Natural Security Agency) spying program (thanks to the whistle blower Edward Snowden).

But here’s what’s interesting though. Almost every country of the world likely has its OWN version of “NSA”; each country just calls it something different. But in fact, many people in the world have wondered WHY there is such a need for such “total surveillance” of its citizens. One can see “cameras” now, out in public, almost everywhere, especially in grocery stores, banks and roadways.

Most people are told Oh, all the cameras are just for security purposes only, in order to cut down on crime. And while the notion of a surveillance state doesn’t seem all that bad on the surface, (afterall, there DOES seem to be a rising crime rate in almost every country of the world, now) the “global elite” have a much more “sinister agenda” in mind……total surveillance and control of all of its citizens (even the “homeless ones”, if you can believe it). In fact, I could even imagine them going so far as to eventually place secret spy drones in American “Amish” or global “indigenous communities”. They want to leave NO corner of the Earth untouched and “non-surveilled”.

And while many of the “global governance programs” APPEAR to have humanity’s best interests at heart on the surface, like I said, behind these programs is a “weapon of deceit”. These global leaders are no doubt BLINDED BY SATAN and Satan’s Agenda of “worldwide dominance”. In fact, most people of the world today don’t even REALIZE that Satan HIMSELF is the “driving force” behind CERN, “dark matter”, and A.I. Technology like “Sophia”, etc.

In fact, in many ways, Satan kind’ve reminds me of Absalom (David’s “vain son” who wanted to be King IN PLACE OF DAVID). He was prideful, arrogant, thought he was better than David, sought to usurp David and David’s position, etc. And he’d sit outside the town gate and “rally the people”. He’d find out what they didn’t like about being David’s subjects and promised to give them “better leadership” and “better outcomes”. In other words, Absalom had them thinking that HE, Absalom had THEIR best interests in mind. But in reality, he only wanted glory for HIMSELF, *NOT* for any of THEM, he was just USING them for HIS own gain!

And so it is with Satan! Because once Satan gets done USING these global leaders and all who worship him to achieve his ultimate goal(s), he won’t have any use of them anymore and will swiftly abandon them! Only, most of those folks will realize that fact TOO LATE! Because like I’ve said in SEVERAL posts before, ONCE A PERSON TAKES THE MARK OF THE BEAST, THAT’S IT, THEY’RE FINISHED, THEY’RE DONE, GAME OVER, THEY’VE LOST THEIR SOULS FOR ETERNITY AND THERE’S NO ETERNAL HOPE FOR THEM ANYMORE, THEY’LL BE SENT TO BURN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY, WITH **NO WAY OUT***, FOREVER & EVER.

Many people wonder how Satan so successfully got 1/3 of the Angels to rebel. Look no further than in the biblical account of David Vs. Absalom and it will all become very apparent. Just like many people wonder how Absalom so successfully got the people to rebel against David. Same way Satan successfully got 1/3 of the Angels to rebel. Same principle, same model, same modus operandi (mode of operation). Chillingly enough, both Absalom and Satan had MANY things in common. I cringe, just to think about it! In fact, here’s all the similarities:

  • They were the “favorite” (Pre-Satan was God’s favorite angel – BEFORE the fall – just like Absalom was David’s favorite son!)
  • Both were given “extremely high honor”
  • Both were “extremely handsome” (Note: Pre-Satan was only “beautiful” BEFORE the fall but NOT AFTER!)
  • Both were “prideful and arrogant”
  • Both were “rebellious”
  • Both tried to “usurp higher authority”
  • Both tried lies, pressure & manipulation to get their way
  • Both were CURSED after their “fall from grace”

But folks, how many “Absaloms” (Absalom-like people) or “Delilahs” (Delilah-like people) have you known in your life? Someone that “appears” to have your best interests at heart but yet, doesn’t really? Because they’re only looking out for their OWN neck and not YOURS? [Note: The Delilah I speak of is Old Testament Delilah – the Philistine woman who took down Samson!] And you oftentimes didn’t find that out UNTIL it was “too late?” And by then, the collateral damage was DONE?

Folks, that’s what many of today’s U.N. government heads are like. They “appear” to have our best interests in mind. But behind closed doors, what every country’s government TRULY wants is “global governance”. Ofcourse, the average global citizen isn’t quite “up” for that just yet, so that’s WHY the global elite has to use “media events”, “social media”, “TV”, “music”, “movies”, “books”, “radio”, “news”, “the entertainment industry”, “colleges and universities”, “magazines and newspapers” etc. to try to SHAPE OUR GLOBAL VIEWPOINT!

Several years ago, hardly nobody liked the U.N. and many saw it as an “evil organization”. Fast forward to 2018 and it now seems like more and more people are starting to see the U.N. as a “good thing”, a “humanitarian thing”, something that actually “benefits mankind”. And in some ways, the U.N. (ironically enough) DOES benefit mankind. But for the most part, there is always “the agenda BEHIND the agenda” and most people aren’t told of that or they’re too busy watching the latest TV show or movie to pay it much attention and that’s exactly what Satan and the global elite are banking on! MARK MY WORDS!

Now on to my next “spiel”. The United States of America {and possibly a few other countries} (as far as I know) are now working on a program called “ID 2020” or the “RealID”. And it has to do with “Biometrics”. And from my best understanding, this “RealI.D.” will be tied in to everything from Driver’s Licenses, Passports, and eventually, into banking and jobs, more than likely. Now, am I saying that “RealI.D.” IS the “Mark of the Beast” in America? No, not necessarily but I can definitely see it as a PRECURSOR to such! 

But yet, ONE thing is apparent through ALL of this, folks! ALL governments of the world eventually want a CASHLESS SOCIETY! Why? So they can then make ALL the money of the world DIGITAL, into a global, centralized “one world government order” DATABASE! “Okay, so how can we can DELAY THAT, then?”, some may be asking. How? Simple. BY STARTING TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING IN CASH! And then, if cash paying BECOMES A COMEBACK (specifically, a GLOBAL COMEBACK), then states and governments of the world will have NO CHOICE but to “DELAY” the “ELECTRONIC/DIGITAL SYSTEM”, more than likely!  

Because folks, let me tell you something. Once a state, city-state and/or country DOES go COMPLETELY “cash-free”, and ALL cash is “doing away with”, the people and citizens OF that state, city, city-state and/or land/government/province lose ALL the personal financial power in their lives and the personal financial power is then COMPLETELY shifted over TO the “gov’t authorities” (specifically, the global governing authorities). Do you see what I mean by that, folks? Do you see where I’m going with this at all?

I DO apologize though, in hindsight, for writing SO MANY POSTS about this subject, folks! I know that some of you are probably getting tired of hearing about it and of my writing about it SO VERY MUCH! But people as a whole are just SO unprepared for all of this (ESPECIALLY non-Christian people!) And they need to know THE TRUTH, THE REALITY of such things! 

Heck, even many “minority” Christians THEMSELVES living in “majority-Hindu India” or “majority-communist China” right now don’t yet see “AADHAAR” or “The Social Credit Score” as any real spiritual “threat” to them, as I’m told by another source that their “Christian minority church leaders” (as a whole) are NOT warning them of such End Times Dangers! Folks, that’s sad! Because if India’s or China’s Christian minority church leaders take the issue so lightly, can you IMAGINE just how LIGHTLY their “American, Canadian, South American, and European” counterparts” will take it, as well? 

Folks, we’re seeing “SIGNS” of the soon unveiling OF the “Mark of the Beast/Mark of the Beast System” and OF the soon unveiling of *THE ANTICHRIST* **all around us** in today’s world! Are YOU paying attention, folks? Are YOUR family and friends and coworkers paying attention? If not, time to start PAYING ATTENTION, folks! Signs of the times are ALL AROUND US! Not JUST of the soon coming global economic collapse, but several other things, too. 

IF Jesus Christ were to return to the Earth today, would YOU be ready? Would the ones that were close to you be ready? If not, WHY? And if not, then time to PRAY TO BE READY and “worthy” in the Lord’s site, folks! Cause time won’t delay any longer, the Lord’s Wrath upon the Earth won’t delay any longer! 

Jesus, I pray for all the citizens of China and India and the world beyond. And if a soul isn’t yet ready for you, Lord, I pray that you will MAKE that soul ready for you! I pray that you will OPEN UP PEOPLE’S SPIRITUAL EYES as to what’s REALLY going on, behind the world’s stage and that you will lift MANY lukewarm Christians OUT OF THEIR *SPIRITUAL SLUMBER!* Also: Please give ALL Christians of the world the KNOWLEDGE and the STRENGTH to *ENDURE TILL THE END!* Amen“. 

 

 

The Rise of Witchcraft in America

A SHORT & BRIEF U.S. HISTORY LESSON:

On July 4, 1776, the U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed by what was then considered the “13 colonies” of America. For those of you who aren’t in the know, that was the time that America “severed” its ties with Great Britain. In other words, the 13 colonies of America declared itself INDEPENDENT from Great Britain.

All the rest of the land of what is now known as “The United States” was later added onto the “13 colonies“. And what originally started out as the “13 colonies of 1776” eventually, over time, became the “United States of America“. The very last state to join the union, Hawaii, became a U.S. state on August 21, 1959!

The U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights (the two documents that are SUPPOSED to determine all the U.S. Laws & Bylaws) were both ratified (that means, “made official/active”) on June 21, 1788 and December 15, 1791 (respectively). And despite many people thinking that the Constitution means “freedom FROM religion”, it was actually supposed to be “freedom OF religion!” In fact, “religious liberty” was one of the KEY components of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights! Our founding fathers all believed in God and founded the very nation of America itself upon God and the bible!

But fast forward to the year 1996 or so. This was when I very first started noticing a “great cultural shift” happening……..a cultural shift AWAY from Jesus and the bible! And at first, it was very subtle……barely noticeable. [The movie called “The Craft” and the TV show “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” was released that year. Another interesting facet is that “prayer” was banned in many schools around this time, as well, though hardly anyone noticed].

And over time, as the years went on, it started to become more and more noticeable. Around the year 1997 or so, “gay pride parades” starting happening, en masse. Then in the year 1998, the movie called “Practical Magic” came out, as well as the very first Harry Potter book and the TV show called “Charmed!”]

Not to mention there was also this social campaign going on in the schools and in homes around that time where parents and teachers were told to “validate their children/students and tell them how great, wonderful, special and unique they were, while NOT focusing on their “weaknesses” – in other words, overplaying their strengths – in a desperate attempt to increase self-confidence/self-validation in young people. In other words, parents and teachers and therapists were told to “coddle the youth”.

And ya want to know what happened, folks? Those “extremely coddled” youth eventually grew up (as a whole) to be EXTREMELY NARCISSISTIC, have practically ZERO interest in Jesus, morals or the bible, have and/or display practically NO ACCOUNTABILITY, and whom think it’s ALL ABOUT *THEM!* Welcome to the “Age of Entitlement”, folks!

What’s even worse is that it branched off from the youth and then eventually reached the adults, as well (groups of people – as a whole – who feel like the world OWES them something – when the truth is, the world doesn’t owe them ANYTHING and THEY are the ones who truly owe Christ EVERYTHING for what he’s done for ALL OF MANKIND on the Cross!)

And the rise of witchcraft in America went hand in hand with that “coddling movement!” 1996 and 1998 were HUGE years for mass media witchcraft infiltration of the youth! In fact, the youth has ALWAYS been their prime target audience! Because if they could get to the youth, they knew they’d have the future and culture of the country in check!

Then on September 11, 2001, things in America just went HAYWIREspiritually. With Harry Potter, and witchcraft movies and TV shows already well underway, and with parents/teachers having been taught to “coddle the youth” and tell them how great, smart, special and wonderful they were, while downplaying their weaknesses, and NOT preaching to them about “sin” or the consequences of “wrong-doing”, the nation of America (specifically the youth of America – as a whole) then fell into a PAGAN/WICCAN TRANCE!

And BECAUSE the nation of America (as a whole) was so suddenly interested (all of a sudden) in “coddling the youth” and in “Witchcraft” and so NOT interested in Jesus and the bible, Jesus allowed the nation of America to BE ATTACKED! It was what I felt to be one of Jesus’s FINAL wake-up calls for people (specifically parents and/or pastors) that had been spiritually asleep! (Since then, there have been several more – the Pulse nightclub shooting for one, among other events, etc.)

And while some people turned to the churches after 9-11, it likely was NOT for the right reasons! Because this only lasted a few months before people stopped going to church, stopped reading their bibles, stopped praying and seeking God, etc.

Nevertheless, some parents became very angry about the Harry Potter book series and tried to have them banned from libraries! But it was to NO AVAIL! Why? Because the Spirit of Darkness was just TOO STRONG upon America! And sadly, those parents were partially to blame! Because instead of preaching the bible and the Word of the Lord to their children, they were too busy doing other things! They believed Satan’s “social engineering” lies that they needed to “coddle” their children, instead of PREACH and TEACH their children about the “wiles of the devil”, etc. So then was it any wonder then that the youth’s interest in witchcraft – at this point in time of American history – was just EXPLODING?

I remember the times of 1999 when you could walk into the average bookstore and the “New Age/Witchcraft” section was a very small one, say one bookshelf full. However, just a few years later, when you walked into the average bookstore (long before Amazon put most bookstores out of business and just 2 years or more after 9-11), the New Age/Witchcraft section just EXPLODED – with SEVERAL bookshelves then dedicated to it! And though it happened over the process of 2-3 years, to ME, it felt like it happened overnight!

And I admit this to my shame but I was 18-19 when the very first Harry Potter books came out. Everyone was making such a big “fuss” over them, especially parents. I knew that parents wanted these books “banned” from libraries and what have you. So I ordered my own set of Harry Potter books from Barnes & Noble.com just to see what all the “fuss” was about; to try to gather rather or not these parents should be as “upset” as they were. I also tried to “reason with myself” that it would be possible for me to read Harry Potter from a “Christian perspective”. BOY, WAS I DECEIVED!

I devoured the first 1-3 books in practically no time but by book 4, I was starting to get “bored stiff” of the repeating plot line and lost interest in the series! And PRAISE JESUS that he made me lose interest in the series – otherwise, things could’ve been ALOT worse! But ofcourse, even though my “heart” was not as into the series after book 4, the books themselves were STILL in my house!

And during that time in my life, I wasn’t yet aware (or aware at all) then WHEN I read part of the Harry Potter series, I had opened up a demonic doorway in my life! Not long after reading the Harry Potter books, I became temporarily interested in witchcraft & falsely believed (at the time) that I could supplement “white magic” with my Christianity! I even came across a New Age music group called “Enigma”, which had pictures of Aleister Crowley on its album cover art – though I’ll admit to my shame that I didn’t even KNOW who Aleister Crowley was at the time! BOY, WAS I DECEIVED!

Because once those “demons” GAINED the legal spiritual right to torment me (after my reading those books & after my unknowingly listening to that Satanic/Wiccan music), the “demons” were RELENTLESS in attacking me! They gained a DEMONIC STRONGHOLD over me! I went from Harry Potter to The Craft to Practical Magic to eventually thinking about enrolling in “Witchcraft School” sponsored by Yvonne Frost!

And folks, you want to know what happened during that time? I became ANGRY, DEPRESSED, VENGEFUL, ADDICTED TO LUST, ADDICTED TO “CURSING AT AND YELLING AT JESUS”, AN ALCOHOLIC, MEAN, UNFORGIVING, SELFISH, NARCISSISTIC, SUICIDAL! And that’s just the effects it had on ME, a known believer of Jesus! So just IMAGINE what it does to someone who is NOT a believer in Jesus and never WAS a believer of Jesus! It would practically DESTROY THEM!

Thankfully in my case, the Lord Jesus Christ sent me a VIOLENT (LITERAL) thunder & lightning storm of his fury that I LITERALLY thought was The End of The Earth one night & that FORCED ME TO REPENT of having tried to commit suicide several times within that time-frame of my life, etc.! Trust me, if you had seen the VIOLENT thunder & lightning storm that I did, you probably would’ve both pissed & shit yourself at the same time! What was terrifying to me about that “violent storm” were several factors:

  1. It had been THE MOST VIOLENT & ***LOUD*** thunder & lightning storm I had seen in ALL MY LIFE!
  2. It was just ONE huge neon pink lightning bolt coming out of a huge white ball of light – which told me: “Hey! This isn’t no ORDINARY storm, kid! This one’s JUST FOR YOU!”
  3. The more I thought to myself in my own sinful defiance: “Oh come on Lord, you TOO would be suicidal if YOU had experienced what I did, give me a break!”, the lighting bolt would go BAM!BAM!BAM!BAM!BAM! and get closer & closer to my bedroom window!
  4. The more I thought to myself: “Okay, okay, perhaps what I did WAS really bad and I shouldn’t of done it. I’m sorry. I don’t want to die, I just want the pain to end”, the lighting bolt would strike a bit less, less louder & move farther AWAY from my bedroom window!
  5. The next morning when I was excitedly, yet fearfully talking about “THE STORM” to my bestfriend, my next door neighbor goes: “Storm? WHAT STORM? If there was a storm last night, I’d of heard it, since I was up ALL NIGHT as I didn’t sleep much last night!” NOTE: THAT’S WHEN I **KNEW** IT WAS OF THE LORD ABOVE AND THAT “THE STORM” WAS JUST FOR *ME* AND THAT HE ALLOWED ME TO BE THE *ONLY ONE* WHO HEARD IT AND SAW IT! YIKES!!! [That was sometime during 2000-2001 and I’ve NEVER looked back – as far as “suicidal tendencies” or “alcohol addiction” goes, anyways!]

Around the year 2003 or so, U.S. national interest in witchcraft/New Age philosophies & music just INCREASED BY LEAPS & BOUNDS! What’s interesting to note is that in the Old Testament, we are of told of Isaac’s travails in Haran. We are told his sheep and his cattle “increased by leaps and bounds”. And THAT type of “increased by leaps and bounds” is what’s considered a RIGHTEOUS INCREASE!

However, the increase of Witchcraft/Satanism by leaps and bounds (around the year 2003 or so) is what’s known as an UNRIGHTEOUS INCREASE! Do you see what the Devil’s trying to do, folks? He’s trying to MOCK THE THINGS OF GOD, EVERY WHICH WAY HE CAN! Whatever God does, and whatever is “righteous”, Satan must have an UNRIGHTEOUS COUNTERFEIT!

Interestingly enough, in the years 2005-2012, The “Left Behind” series by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins caused a “slight resurgence” of interest in Jesus Christ, bible prophecy and the bible……if, only for a little while. And while the Left Behind series has likely sold NOWHERE near the number of books and movies that the Harry Potter “Franchise” has, atleast it got people “somewhat” interested in bible prophecy again. However, the sad thing about the series is that:

A). A “pre-trib rapture” is very likelyNOT biblical! Let me elaborate on that a bit. HARPAZÕ, from what my best biblical understanding, is a Greek word that means “Catching UP”. And “Falling Away” ofcourse, means Falling DOWN; dying SPIRITUALLY! There’s MANY false preachers today (that are readers of the Left Behind series) that teach that “The Great Falling Away” means THE RAPTURE but what it REALLY, TRULY MEANS is “The Great Falling Away FROM THE FAITH!”

B). It’s NOT possible (atleast for a human being anyways – but perhaps a “righteous angel working under uncover human disguise” could) to “secretly work for the Antichrist” (undercover as a *double agent*) and get away with it! For the Antichrist will demand WORSHIP FROM ***ALL!*** 1 Corinthians 10:21 even says: “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils”.

C). From my best biblical understanding, the “tribulation saints” are those who die BEFORE (what I’ve now come to believe will be) the Mid-Tribulation Rapture, NOT AFTER! 

Another interesting thing is that many of the Left Behind books were rumored to have been released on “High Satanic holidays”. The authors tried to explain it away by claiming that they specifically did that to try to “thwart Satan’s power”. But again, why not just release them on the 7th day BIBLICAL Sabbath (Saturday) or on BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, etc?) It stands to reason!

https://libertytothecaptives.net/tim_lahaye.html

After doing more research into the matter, and peeling back the layers of the “spiritual onion” that is known as “The Left Behind Franchise”, I became very troubled in my spirit! For I started to feel, personally, like there was just as much “Witchcraft” IN the Left Behind series as there was in the Harry Potter series!

Not only does the bible NOT speak of a “secret rapture” [Revelation 1:3-7 says that ALL eyes shall see him in the clouds of heaven, EVEN THOSE who reject him] but Christians can NOT sit at the table of God AND the table of demons at the same time and get away with it! For NO man can “love two masters”. Also as well: The Christian writer of the above linked website claim that the Tim LaHaye site used to have “New Age”/masonic music on the site but has now removed it after “Christian backlash”. Interesting……….

As for the character Buck Williams [“Buck” – a male deer with TWO HORNS, anyone?] who “secretly” works for the Antichrist without the Antichrist knowing? Well, we know that Satan is NOT all powerful and all knowing like God/Jesus is. However, my best spiritual guess is that it’d probably be very unlikely for someone to try to “secretly” appear to be in Satan’s camp when they weren’t. [Note: It’s far more easier for a Satanist to “pretend” to be a Christian than it is for a Christian to “pretend” to be a Satanist]

That would be very, very hard (if not impossible) for any true Christian to pull off! And why would any Christian want to? Unless the Lord Jesus himself SPECIFICALLY commanded one of his own righteous angels or a very righteous human to do so, the chance that a Christian could do such a thing (without the Lord Jesus’s so-called backing AND get away from it, as far as the Antichrist is concerned) is very likely ZERO!

But those things aside, let us now focus on the period from 2012-2018. This is when Witchcraft and the study of Witchcraft came to a “fever pitch!” It had become – and still is, even – the “in thing”, the “popular thing”. There’s even this dark spiritual attitude like: “Hey, live and let live, everybody’s doing it, so might as well!”

In 2012, you had what’s known as “The Mayan Prophecy”. Basically, it was the 2012 version of Y2K! And, knock on wood, the world is still here……..for NOW, anyways! But people became SO obsessed with the December 21, 2012 date for “The End of the Mayan calendar”, d-uh d-uh d-uh…..And……..nothing happened! Matthew 23:36 says the following: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only“.

In the year 2018, we’ve seen COUNTLESS numbers of godless movies, books, music, videogames, magazines, newspaper and TV shows DEDICATED to the cause of Satanism/Witchcraft. It’s on every street corner, in every neighborhood, every county, every country of the world! It’s even in many of today’s “churches”.

In fact, it’s practically EVERYWHERE! (“Wizard of Oz”, “Halloween” and/or “Oz Fest”, anyone?) And Christians, I really hate to say this but it needs to be said: we have only ourselves to blame! Because instead of reading the bible and falling on our knees in submission to our creator (God/Jesus Almighty), and REPENTING of our sins and going to every which corners of the Earth to preach the gospel, we’ve instead (as a whole) become slowly enamored (over time) with the things of this world! And now we’re all DEARLY PAYING THE PRICE FOR OUR PASSIVENESS!

Let me put this in a different way: THE REASON that Witchcraft/Satanism has seen such a SURGE and SHEER RISE in numbers IS BECAUSE we Christians (as a whole) have FALLEN AWAY FROM THE ONE TRUE GOD (THE GOD OF THE BIBLE/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY!) Because lets face it. The RISE of evil in today’s society WOULD NOT have been possible to the TOTAL EXTENT that is today without the “unknowing help” from “wayward/falling away/lukewarm Christians!” IT’S THE TRUTH!

True, evil would’ve still happened, since the bible SAYS it would happen. But NOT to the GREAT EXTENT that it now has, if more Christians had fallen on their knees and faces and TRULY saught the Lord, while the Lord Jesus could still be found! Because lets face it, folks: Every single ONE lukewarm Christian just adds ONE MORE spiritual advantage to Satan’s Great Army of Darkness! SAD BUT TRUE!

And we tend to think of a witch or a Satanist as some old lady with long white hair and warts on her nose or a young guy wearing a pentagram with a black hoodie! But folks……..today’s “witches”, “warlocks” and “Satanists” could be and/or look like the guy or girl next door! They could be the 8 year old kid that lives across the street………the “20 year old war widow”………the young guy nurse that works at a hospital…….the innocent “nerdy looking guy with glasses”……….the innocent yet nerdy looking female librarian…..your doctor or dentist…….the average cashier at Walmart……or the old man walking along with a cane who claims he’s a WWII vet……..Some “witches” probably even train their 4-5 year old children to “cast spells”, I’m serious, folks!

That’s why we must remain SOBER and remain SPIRITUALLY VIGILANT! 1 Peter 5:8 says: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”. But see folks, that’s just the thing. Many Christians today are NOT remaining sober and “spiritually vigilant” and that’s WHY Satan and his “cronies” (both demonic and human) have been able to be SO successful in infiltrating political parties (the Democrat party), The Mass Media, Society, etc. 

Therefore, in conclusion, 1996, 1998, 2000-2001, and June 26. 2015 have marked some of the GREATEST **SHIFTS** from Light to Darkness! But this I DO know: God’s Wrath has been on America for a VERY LONG TIME! The June 26, 2015 S.C.O.T.U.S. decision sealed the deal on His Wrath! And so every abominable thing that’s happened since then? I have a strong feeling that Jesus is showing us a “preview” of just what a world and society WITHOUT HIM would be like! In other words, he’s showing us a “preview” of just how MORALLY DEPRAVED things will become! Those who don’t put their faith, love, trust & obedience into Jesus will be WITHOUT A PRAYER – in this life AND the next one!

And remember, just because Trump is president and “seems” to be following up on most of his promises for “pro-life” and “religious liberty” – atleast at THIS point in time, anyways – doesn’t necessarily mean anything! For the Antichrist comes to DECEIVE MANY! And he does this by what, folks? APPEARING AS A “GOD-SEND”, AN ANGEL OF LIGHT! HA!

Nevertheless, VOTE REPUBLICAN during the November 6, 2018 U.S. Mid-term Elections as we MUST (as Christians) try to hold onto WHATEVER Pro-Life and Religious Liberty victories we can GET/MAINTAIN, WHILE we still can! SATAN IS NOW THE HEAD OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, IT’S TRUE!

Another thing I need to touch on real quick is “demonic doorways”. Witchcraft is just one of MANY “demonic doorways” that people unknowingly allow into their homes. However, that being said, there’s many DEMONIC OBJECTS in general that people unknowingly bring into their homes that OPEN UP DEMONIC DOORWAYS IN OUR LIVES and that give DEMONIC SPIRITS THE *LEGAL* SPIRITUAL RIGHT TO WRECK HAVOC ON OUR LIVES!

For more information, please read my following post: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2014/09/08/things-in-your-home-that-attract-demonsdemon-spirits/

Plus I won’t even mention the **NATIONAL CALLS** by “Witches” to CAST A SPELL ON TRUMP, etc:

Modern-Day Witches Plan Ritual To Hex Brett Kavanaugh

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/witches-ritual-hex-brett-kavanaugh_us_5bc0efaae4b0bd9ed559feff

Each month, thousands of witches cast a spell against Donald Trump

https://www.vox.com/2017/6/20/15830312/magicresistance-restance-witches-magic-spell-to-bind-donald-trump-mememagic

In U.S. History classes, my classmates and I were taught that witches “didn’t really exist” and that the Salem Witch Trails were just “drama” (women being falsely accused of being witches by people that didn’t like them, etc.) However, there’s a TV show out on Netflix now called “Salem” that presents the Salem Witch Trials in a DIFFERENT light…….such as there WERE such things as “witches” but that the “covens” worked IN SECRET! And then, when one member of a coven got pissed off at another older adult member of the coven, they would then so-called threaten to “tattle” on that member OR falsely accuse a TRUE CHRISTIAN of what they THEMSELVES were doing in secret!

And now that I truly think about it, I think the show “Salem” not only likely ACCURATELY portrays what REALLY happened during the Salem Witch Trials but also that it displays REAL WITCHCRAFT and “rituals” in it! (I’ll admit I watched part of Season 1 for “Educational Purposes, ONLY” to try to gain a more clearer understanding of how Wiccans work “behind the scenes” so I would have a much better knowledge of how to “spiritually thwart them, in the name of Christ!”

Ofcourse, one must be careful, the show makes fun of Christians and pastors and show pastors as “weak, angry, lukewarm, incompetent and sinful” (which unfortunately, many of them today – as a whole, ARE!) However, the show is also good at accurately portraying just how FAR Satan will go to use his “witches” to attack the faithful of God! It shows how Satan comes in with “stealth” and slowly but gradually gets us to “get mad at God/Jesus” and also how “unrepentant sin begets more sin”.

In hindsight, I actually think that a Christian could learn ALOT about the enemy (Satan/demons/witches) from that TV show and HOW they operate behind the scenes. But one must be VERY careful and PRAY in the name of Jesus before watching each episode. Otherwise, Satan could no doubt USE such a show to reel a Christian INTO the realm of “witchcraft/wicca” and trust me folks, that’s NOT where you’d want to be! The Old Testament more or less had a DEATH PENALTY for witches, since that’s how SERIOUS the sin of Witchcraft was, back in ancient biblical times! So if you can just IMAGINE how ANGRY Jesus must be over what goes on in today’s world in the name of “Witchcraft”, NOW?

One very, very last thing I wanted to mention real quick is that there’s a Satanic sect WITHIN the Roman Catholic Church called “Santeria”. That’s a Spanish word for “saints”. Basically, people gather around statues of “Catholic saints” (which are actually demons) and WORSHIP THE DEVIL! Though in THEIR minds, they falsely THINK (unless they know better and are much, much deeper into the religion) that they are worshiping God! (Creepy, isn’t it, folks?) 

But my last concluding statement, in retrospect, is THIS: Witches have ONLY been able to expand in sheer numbers DUE to the lukewarmness of many Christians. And AS LONG AS Christians put their faith, trust, love and OBEDIENCE into Jesus Christ and NONE OTHER, Satanists/Witches won’t be able to touch them!

5). “The Screwtape Letters + Screwtape Proposes A Toast” by C.S. Lewis 

And last but not least, I’ll end here with a PRAYER for all of you dear, dear readers here, rather a regular subscriber or a “guest reader”:

Abba/Heavenly Father, if any one reader of this blog (rather a subscriber or a “guest reader” is involved with Witchcraft in any type of way – even if it’s something as simple as lottery tickets/gambling or horoscopes – I pray that you BREAK THE HOLD that Witchcraft has over them, thus making them lost interest in it, altogether and also that you show them YOUR biblical TRUTH on the matter……that Witchcraft is AN ABOMINATION in your site! And for all those readers (rather subscribers or “guest readers”) who’ve been a VICTIM of Witchcraft in their lives, I pray that you BREAK THE POWER OF DARKNESS IN THEIR LIVES and help them to GAIN VICTORY over Satan and their spiritual enemies! I pray that you BREAK **ALL** DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS in their lives – rather participants/victims of Witchcraft or by unknowingly having “idols” or “demonic objects” in their homes – and that you PLACE YOUR HEDGE OF DIVINE PROTECTION OVER THEM, AS YOU GUIDE THEM CLOSER TO **YOUR ETERNAL TRUTH** THAT CAN **ONLY** BE FOUND IN YOU AND YOU, ALONE! I say this in Jesus’s name, AMEN!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Christian” Suicide DOES NOT lead to “Heaven!”

Okay folks, today we’re gonna talk about a topic that most people have dealt with, either directly or indirectly and that topic is “suicide”. Most recently, a pastor’s wife came out and PUBLICLY declared that his suicide “does not condemn him to hell“. Well, she’s COMPLETELY BIBLICALLY WRONG on that and so I’ve decided to write this post to clear up any confusion on the matter. Lets talk about what THE BIBLE actually has to say about “suicide”: 

“Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?” – [Jeremiah 7: 9-10]

In other words, is one gonna KILL THEMSELVES, then come and stand before Almighty God in God’s “holy house”, DURING God’s righteous Eternal Judgement and try to say that they are “OK” to commit the abomination of MURDER (murder of SELF) but are STILL (in THEIR mind, anyways) “worthy enough to enter into the Eternal Paradise of God?”) I think most of us KNOW what Almighty God would say to such a remark: “I NEVER KNEW YOU, DEPART FROM ME, YE WORKER OF INIQUITY!”

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? IF ANY MAN DEFILE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, HIM SHALL GOD DESTROY; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” – 1 Corinthians 3:16-18

In other words, OUR BODIES are the “temple of God” where the Holy Spirit of God resides! THUS, if we do ANYTHING to defile the temple, and I do mean ANYTHING, (and we don’t REPENT of that “sin” before dying or die DURING that sin of “defiling the temple”) the bible says that God will DESTROY that person! OUCH!

“For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law” – [James 2:11]

In other words, the 6th commandment, as well as the underlined part of James 2:11 says that we are “NOT to kill” (and that INCLUDES the “killing of SELF!”).

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, THAT THEY WHICH DO SUCH THINGS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GODBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, LONGSUFFERING, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” – Galatians 5: 19-23

In other words, there’s a spiritual warfare going on inside our souls! The “works of the flesh” (eating, drinking, envying, idolatry, physical pleasure/lusts, placing our bodies and our so-called bodily needs “above God”, etc.) and the “fruit of the Spirit” (which is placing our bodies, hearts, souls and mind into SUBJECTION/SUBMISSION TO Christ & his gospel).

And ONE of the “fruits of the Spirit” is something known as LONGSUFFERING. Okay, now what’s “longsuffering?”, someone may ask. Longsuffering means (just as the word says) that you are “prepared to suffer for/in Christ for a LONG TIME, until you take your last NATURAL breath in this life!” Because truth be told, Jesus NEVER said that the spiritual walk with him would be “easy”.

Please remember how the world (as a whole) HATES CHRISTIANS, HATES JESUS and HATES THE BIBLE WITH SUCH A WRITHING UNGODLY PASSION! In fact, Jesus himself said in John 15: 20-22: “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent meIf I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin” 

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my sonBut the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” – [Revelation 21: 7-8]

But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” – [Matthew 24:13]

In other words, Jesus is telling us in those 3 different passages that we MUST endure persecution for HIS namesake! We MUST endure “until the end”. That means, that UNTIL we take our very last dying breath (by means of NATURAL death and NOT suicide, that is), that means we must ENDURE the hardships, the persecutions that COME with “being a born-again Christian in today’s world”. We MUST have/learn “spiritual endurance”. THAT is what it means to become the biblical essence of “longsuffering”.

Therefore, it stands to reason: If he that endures till the End is SAVED, then what happens to him that does NOT endure till the “natural end” of his life? Answer: He (that person) is NOT saved! Once again, Galatians 5:21 states “Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things SHALL NOT inherit the kingdom of God

It says it right there, plain and simple: Those who MURDER (even those who murder SELF) shall NOT inherit the kingdom of God! FOLKS, IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE CLEARER THAN THAT!

[[But let me add a short disclaimer here: if one is forced to kill someone in self-defense or to save the life/lives of someone else, there is no condemnation for that person. However, if someone “purposely” murders someone (other than themselves), can they still be forgiven in the name of Jesus – i.e. think abortion, etc.? The answer: yes! If they TRULY repent OF that murder – in their heart & soul – before they take their last dying breath, and BEG Jesus for forgiveness, then yes, they could be forgiven by Jesus. However, Galatians 5:21 is talking about people who “purposely” murder (themselves and/or others) and DON’T REPENT!]] 

But let us keep going, for the sake of those who might try to “argue” with me on this one:

Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?” – [Ecclesiastes 7:17]

So in other words, “dying BEFORE our time” is to KILL ONESELF, is to “commit suicide”, in other words. AND PEOPLE SAY THAT SUICIDE ISN’T MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE! HA!

John 8:44 proclaims: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it”

In other words, Satan “was a murderer from the beginning”. Therefore, anyone who “murders” (as in, murders on purpose and NOT in self-defense and/or commits suicide by the “killing” of one self), then that person is doing SATAN’S will, NOT Jesus’s will! Make sense, folks?

“But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you” – [Acts 3:14]

Like it or not, AS SOON AS YOU DIE FROM KILLING YOURSELF, you’ve A: made yourself your “own god” and thus, consequently B: made SATAN your “god!” That’s WHY suicides can’t go to heaven!

“Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?” – [Jeremiah 16:20]

This makes it pretty apparent that WHEN one decides to “extinguish their OWN life”, the life that Almighty God has GIVEN THEM, they, in essence, “become their own god”. But man is NOT God! Man was CREATED by God! Therefore, man has NO RIGHT to “become one’s own god” OR to CHANGE God’s times and laws!

This verse ALSO illustrates how mankind creates many “gods” in their life (money, fortune, fame, etc.) And when those “gods” (who are NOT true “gods”) don’t satisfy, one usually becomes “depressed”. Why? Because WHEN someone makes a “god” (money, fortune, music, fame, etc.), that ALLOWS the demonic spirits the “legal spiritual right” to ENTER into that person’s mind, heart, body and spirit!

And we KNOW from the bible that once demons DO gain a “demonic stronghold” or a “spiritual doorway” by which to enter into a person’s life, they’ll run amok with it! A person will usually get addicted to alcohol, drugs, porn, money, food, or any number of ungodly things once the “demonic spiritual doorway of IDOLATRY” has been opened! But see, that’s the problems, folks: Many people today don’t realize about all the “demonic influences” they’re letting into their life: music, movies, videogames which DEFY CHRIST!

Oftentimes, people that are depressed have somehow allowed IDOLATRY and/or WITCHCRAFT into their life and they don’t even know it! It doesn’t even have to be from ouija boards, tarot cards, fortune telling/horoscopes, gambling or the like. It can just be something as simple as: “Jesus, my needs are more important than YOUR needs, so just deal with it!” A spirit of DEFIANCE!

And once a person OPENS a spiritual doorway, it’s hard to close it, folks! Demons will run amok in a person’s life! If they can’t get a person to commit suicide, they’ll try to get a person addicted to something, instead! And if they can’t get a person addicted to something, they’ll try to get that person hooked on to something else ungodly! Why? So they (the demons) can STILL continue to have their “spiritual stronghold”, their “playground” in a person’s life/heart/mind/body/soul!

The truth is, pastor Stoecklein (if he truly committed suicide, that is) did NOT “endure till the end”. He took his own life! Oh, how my heart GRIEVES for his widow and their 3 children! I mean, it’s one thing if she wants to believe on her own that “Christian suicides” can go to heaven but it’s quite another thing to state PUBLICLY that “Christian suicides can go to heaven!” [JESUS, PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON THIS WOMAN! PLEASE SAVE HER FROM THE DEVIL’S LIES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE AND SHE OR ONE OF HER SONS TAKES THEIR OWN LIFE, BELIEVING THE LIE THAT “CHRISTIAN SUICIDES GO TO HEAVEN!]

Okay, so now that we know THE TRUTH about “suicide”, BIBLICALLY SPEAKING, what does the bible say is THE KEY to overcoming the very “thought” or “temptation” of it, TO BEGIN WITH? Again, let turn to THE BIBLE and the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD for the answer:

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of ChristAnd having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilledDo ye look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ’s, even so are we Christ’s – 2 Corinthians 10: 5:-7

In other words, “suicidal thoughts” or “thoughts that go AGAINST Christ or AGAINST the bible/Christ’s biblical commands in ANY type of way is a “demonic thought”. The bible says that we have POWER AND AUTHORITY over demons! [Luke 10:17, Romans 16:20, Mark 6:7, etc.] Therefore, we must take ALL THOUGHTS “CAPTIVE”. That means, if we EVER have a thought that goes AGAINST Christ or against His Written Word (The Bible), then we need to HOLD THAT THOUGHT “SPIRITUALLY CAPTIVE”, IMMEDIATELY!

In other words, when we VERY FIRST have a depressive thought, we are to CAST OUT THAT DEMON IN JESUS’S NAME, IMMEDIATELY! We are to boldly and LOUDLY innerly declare: “BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST, I COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE, YOU’VE GOT NO POWER!”

And that demon might try to come back (or send another demon(s) in its place) the next day, 7 days from now, 7 years from now, 17 years from now, etc. But WHEN it does, just CAST IT OUT IN THE NAME OF JESUS! Eventually, the “suicide/depression” demon(s) will give up and try to move on to somebody else! [But you can always pray in the name of Jesus that whatever person they NEXT try to inhabit will NOT be overcome by them, just for good measure!]

“For we walk by faith, NOT by sight” – 2 Corinthians 5:7

Too many Christians these days are NOT walking by faith! They’re going by what FEELS good, what LOOKS good, what TASTES good, what SMELLS good, what SOUNDS good, what or whom SEEMS interesting! And by NOT walking by FAITH, they’re tripping themselves UP, folks! They’re setting themselves up for a rather UNGODLY FALL OF SUCH WICKED PROPORTIONS!

However, IF we walk by FAITH, instead of by sight, none of the world’s trappings or temptations will “overcome us!” Because walking BY FAITH and IN FAITH, we will simply KNOW that Jesus CAN and WILL give US the power over any and ALL temptations! Now, will we succumb to temptation from time to time?

Yes! Romans 3:23 tells us that nobody’s perfect and everyone’s gonna do a sin that they need to REPENT OF from time to time. But as long as live BY FAITH and in TOTAL SUBMISSION to Christ, the “temptations” and “wiles” of the devil will NOT permanently overtake us! We WILL be able to get back up, dust ourselves off and KEEP FIGHTING THE HOLY FIGHT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS in our lives!

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you” – [Philippians 4:7-9]

There in Paul’s letter/sermon to the Philippians, we are told that if we FULLY SUBMIT to Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ WILL be WITH US [so long as we cling to Him/His Written Word, the Bible].  In other words, WHEN you submit to Christ, you will feel PEACE in your spirit and you will simply KNOW that you’re following Christ’s will (which is the most greatest feeling in the world folks, believe me!) There will be no “restlessness of spirit” or the like. Because when you’re FULLY submitted to Christ, the “spirit of restlessness” can find no true root in you!

And lastly, here is Open Your Eyes People’s full 3-hour sermon on the matter:

And here’s the full article about the pastor’s wife and her declaration that “Andrew is not in hell for committing suicide”.

Pastor Andrew Stoecklein’s Widow Explains Why His Suicide Does Not Condemn Him to Hell

https://www.christianpost.com/news/pastor-andrew-stoeckleins-widow-explains-why-his-suicide-does-not-condemn-him-to-hell-227356/

But again, this is just ONE pastor’s “suicide” in the U.S. most recently, within the last 7? years or so! There’s been several more! The question of WHY remains a mystery….

I mean, what in the Lord’s good name is going on, here? Are some or all of these pastors not truly “born again” the way they claim to the outside world and to their own families? Are they secretly struggling with some mortal sin in private (such as porn, homosexual behavior, drugs, etc.) and they think it would be so much better to take their own life than to admit to Jesus, their families, their congregations all their failures and short-comings?

Do they preach Jesus one day a week, then secretly forsake him the rest of the week and then at some point in their lives no longer feel “worthy” to lead? Is the “pressure” from being a pastor just too much for them? (In that case, why don’t they just step down?) Or worse yet, is it possible that some of these “suicides” weren’t even suicides to begin with but were actually some sort of foul-play/cold-blooded murder? We may never know, folks! Only God knows!

Nevertheless, I think Jesus is sending us ALL (as well as their congregations and their families) a HUGE wake-up call! And I think the wake up call is something like THIS: Christians -as a whole – are NOT as “born again” as they BELIEVE! They – as a whole – are LOST and are NOT truly focusing on Jesus and his gospel! In fact, they’re too focused on “worldly things” (Facebook, social media, Hollywood, “entertainment”, etc. in their heart, mind, body, soul and in their “home!”

And so BECAUSE they’re focused on “worldly things” in their mind, soul and “home”, demonic spirits are “spiritually ALLOWED” to WRECK HAVOC on them and “suicide” is oftentimes the RESULT of that? That’s the “jist” of the message that I’m getting from the Lord on that! 

A little unrepentant sin here, a little unrepentant sin THERE, and over time, it becomes A STRONGHOLD! Instead of turning to Jesus for salvation, some of these pastors waited until their unrepentant sin became SO BAD, that they were nearly powerless to overcome it! If they had just TRULY cried out to Jesus in their LAST DESPERATE HOUR OF NEED, Jesus would’ve heard them! He hears the prayers of ALL his faithful, no matter how “bad” that person had been, up until that point!

If they TRULY cry out to Jesus like they never have before, Jesus will save them! But, for whatever reason, these pastors didn’t! They did NOT cry out to Jesus in their “last hour”, thus, they GAVE UP! They did NOT “endure till the End” like Jesus commands us to do! How sad! These pastors are, sadly enough, setting a VERY poor example to others about what it means to “endure till the End!” 

Now true, them being “pastors” and all, I’m sure the demonic spirits were ON em’, attacking them morning, noon and night, night and day, 24/7, 365! But ya know what these pastors FAILED to realize? They failed to realize that THE REASON they were being attacked by these demonic spirits so viciously is BECAUSE they were preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ! Satan FEARED them! Satan feared what POWER they might hold and all the GOOD DEEDS they might further do for the kingdom of God! And for THAT very reason, SATAN WANTED THEM GONE! 

Now RIGHT THERE is where many “Christians” are getting theologically and spiritually tripped up! They think to themselves: “Now, wait a minute! I KNOW that Satan wanted my pastor’s soul real bad, BECAUSE my pastor was so effective for the kingdom of God!” But then they DECEIVE THEMSELVES when they say things like: “But I KNOW that God won’t let Satan take his soul, as my pastor’s already done SO MANY good deeds for the kingdom of God!”

But  yet, that poor Christian is overlooking ONE thing: By “killing oneself” and “becoming one’s own god”, one has taken Jesus’s power & authority AWAY from him and attempted to take it upon HIM/HERSELF……he/she’s given Satan THE GREEN LIGHT to take his/her soul away, after all those many years of “spiritually fighting Satan head-on!”

In fact, THE MOMENT they took their own life and succeeded, all their “faith” and “good works” was for NAUGHT! And I’m sure in SOME of those cases, their souls were standing there, watching the people who “found them” and at that exact moment, I think many of them realized they very likely were NOT going to heaven and were likely DESPERATELY asking Jesus for a chance to come back, but Jesus likely quoted to them some of the passages above in response! Why? Because they (a soul who believed in Jesus Christ) cried out to Jesus AFTER their last dying breath but NOT BEFORE! 

Plus lets think about this, folks! Lets get down to brass tax, here! What POINT is it to have “faith in Jesus” but then, to later GIVE UP ON JESUS AND TAKE ONE’S OWN LIFE, AS IF JESUS HAS NO POWER OR AUTHORITY TO HELP ONE OVERCOME THAT WHICH MADE THEM OFF THEMSELVES IN THE FIRST PLACE? Think about it, folks! 

I hope this post has both enlightened and informed those who are thinking about taking their own life……and has shown you, both theologically and rationally why suicide is NOT the answer! In fact, it’s a HELLISH ETERNAL SOLUTION FOR A *TEMPORARY PROBLEM!* Jesus created the universe and the heavens with just the mere sound of his voice: (i.e. “Let there be light!”) So do you REALLY think Jesus is gonna create the whole entire UNIVERSE from scratch, but then, scratch his head in confusion over how to help YOU overcome the thing(s) in life that are making YOU want to kill yourself? Think about that one for awhile, folks! (JESUS WILL HEAR YOUR PRAYERS! CRY OUT TO HIM *NOW* BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE FOR YOU!!!!!)

And to the families of the pastors, you have my MOST SEVERE CONDOLENCES! I know this time is definitely not easy for ANY of you and I pray that Jesus Christ will shine his heavenly strength upon you and all your loves ones at this time! I pray that Jesus will give you FAITH THAT ENDURES ALL THINGS, as well as inner healing, since you guys will most definitely need it at this time! I pray that all of you will CRY OUT TO JESUS IN YOUR DESPERATE TIME(S) OF NEED and that you WON’T EVER, EVER GIVE UP ON JESUS, FOR JESUS SURE AS “HECK” won’t give up on any of YOU, just so long as you NEVER permanently give up on JESUS! 

 

 

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?
