“Corona Virus”: A Test-Run For The Soon-Coming GLOBAL Mark of the Beast Society

So around December 12, 2019 or so, a NEW “virus” (called “Corona Virus”) was announced in Wuhan, China. It was said to be similar to SARS (“Bird Flu”), the “common cold” and “common flu”. And people weren’t really panicking much then. It was (to most Americans and those in Westernized nations) just some “distant virus” in some “distant land”.

Still, I, like many other Americans, secretly worried about the Chinese people from afar and wondered how bad of an impact the so-called “virus” would have on its general population! I prayed in the name of Jesus that the number of deaths, (if any) from the “virus” would be low and that the Chinese people would recover (as a people and as a nation!)

But oddly enough, from the very first headline until NOW, there seems to be NO CONSISTENCY in media coverage of the virus! That fact alone makes me very, very suspicious! First, they say it’s “low risk”. Then they act like it’s the Black Plague of Death. Then they revert back to calling it about as bad as the common cold, and easy to “recover from”. Then they’re emphasizing it could actually be “worse” then the flu and that people can actually DIE from it.

And NOW, on Friday, March 13, 2020, (nearly three months TO THE DAY of the first media announcement of the virus in China), they’re now shutting down schools, businesses, and the like, here in America. And yet not ONE reliable news source can seem to give us 100% exactly HOW the virus came about! It’s like they needed to find SOMETHING to blame it on! SARS? Easy. Blame it on the birds. Zika? Simple. Blame it on the mosquitoes. Corona? Easy as pie. Blame it on the BATS!

But regardless of the TRUE cause of the “virus”, people are panicking! TOILET PAPER, paper towels, baby wipes, rice, beans, dish-washing and laundry detergent supplies, latex gloves, face masks, cold medicines, HAND SANITIZERS, hand soaps, etc. are just FLYING off the shelves!

At SEVERAL different popular stores in my city, the toilet paper aisles were WIPED CLEAN! I’ve personally observed at TWO popular stores in my city people loading up their carts SKY HIGH, plus also witnessed a guy and his son hoard and buy what looked like SIXTEEN packs of 24-bottled waters! (To date, I had never seen anything like that in ALL MY LIFE!)

BUT JUST TODAY, I CAME ACROSS TWO OF **THE MOST GREEDIEST** PROFITEERING HOARDING CASES I HAD EVER SEEN IN ALL MY LIFE! A recent New York Times articles: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/14/technology/coronavirus-purell-wipes-amazon-sellers.html

In case you’re not able to read the full article, here are some of the pictures from the article:

Real Estate Developers BRAGGED on social media about “cashing in” on the Corona virus by buying HUNDREDS of Lysol disinfectant wipes from Costco & then inflating prices on Amazon by as much as 400% [Source: https://www.toronto.com/news-story/9908476-they-bought-up-lysol-wipes-and-resold-them-online-for-a-profit-now-amazon-has-blocked-their-account/]

Now, my whole point of pointing these peoples’ actions out is NOT so much to judge them (or shame them into DONATING said supplies to churches, nursing homes and hospitals). It’s to visually showcase what happens in society when GREED and PANIC take over during a NATIONAL CRISES! (Thanks to all the “hoarding price gougers” out there, these are some of the shelves gracing America, today):

OUT OF STOCK 2

Grocery store, March 12 AND 13, OUT OF STOCK

OUT OF STOCK 3

Walmart, March 13, 2020, OUT OF STOCK

Double bare shelves, OUT OF STOCK 2020

First of all, how did the stores and its employees NOT notice people carrying out the supplies BY THE HANDFULS? (It’s one thing to take 3-10 of something for one’s large family and/or one’s elderly at-risk neighbors and the like. But HUNDREDS? THOUSANDS?) Did they BRIBE the cashiers at all? There needs to be some more investigation into HOW this happened, exactly! Also: We might need some new laws that “ration out” supplies to keep this very thing from happening AND that prosecute people who “price gouge” during a national emergency!

But that fact aside, it’s fairly common (and expected) during a NORMAL crises (an upcoming hurricane, blizzard, snow storm) for people to stock up on supplies if they think they’re gonna be holed in for awhile in their homes. But the U.S. nation has NEVER, EVER (as far as my knowledge goes, anyways) run out of stock EN MASSE, NATION-WIDE, ALL AT ONCE, SIMULTANEOUSLY! Folks, this is just during a “virus outbreak”. Can you IMAGINE what things will be like during THE GREAT EVENT that supercedes and/or actually USHERS *IN* THE MARK OF THE BEAST/THE MARK OF THE BEAST GLOBAL SOCIETY?

Which brings me to my next point. Jesus is SHOWING US, EN MASSE, about what “panic” and “greed” looks like during a time of national crises! In fact, the hoarding price gougers? Jesus is showing all of US a visual example of what OUR HEARTS are like when WE decide to HOARD SUPPLIES (even if it’s just 10 of something for OURSELVES!) On the most deepest, spiritual level of our HEARTS, it doesn’t really matter if we HOARD 10 or 50,000 of something, hoarding is hoarding!

(NOTE: I’m currently told that HOSPITALS and DOCTOR’S OFFICES are now short on supplies due to the HOARDING of others! HOW DREADFUL! And not only that but some HOSPITALS THEMSELVES have bought up and hoarded all the supplies to the point that other hospitals don’t have enough supplies! SAD!!!!)

Here in America, we (as a whole) have FORSAKEN GOD! We’re a nation of liars, sodomites, whores, murderers (i.e. abortion), materialists, atheists, Satanists, thieves, panickers, hoarders, blasphemers (i.e. a person naturally born as a man saying they are “not truly” a man or vice versa and/or repeatedly saying the Lord’s name in vain, etc.), drunkards, fornicators, mockers, scoffers, lukewarmers (i.e. “I believe in Jesus, sure. So that automatically means I’m going to heaven, I don’t have to obey the commandments“, etc.), LOVERS OF SIN/UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, and the list goes on.

And just how long did WE think (as a nation) that Jesus would put up with all of that? Just how long? Days? Weeks? Months? Years? I can tell you right now that his anger has reached a BOILING POINT! (Note: Even the most nicest, quietest, loving, docile Christian will have their BOILING POINT of anger where they just go off on someone if made angry enough! And so it is with God! Please remember that we were made in HIS image! So if WE have OUR own BOILING POINT of anger, what makes us think (as individual Christians and as a NATION) that Jesus/God also doesn’t have HIS own BOILING POINT of anger?)

I blame ALOT of America’s sins (both individual and nation-wide, as a whole) on DISPENSATIONALISM! Now, for those of you who are NOT “in the know”, what ever does that word MEAN? Answer: It’s the very word used to describe the LUKEWARM spiritual attitude of: The Old Testament was meant for the Jews. Only the NEW Testament is meant for Christians“.

THAT, by definition, is dispensationalism. For to DISPENSE something means to TAKE IT APART, TO **SCATTER**, TO PUT IT IN PARTS OR SECTIONS. And we KNOW from the holy scriptures that God does not change nor do his laws change! In fact, we will STILL be following his Old Testament FEASTS (i.e. The Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) in NEW JERUSALEM!

Therefore, I submit to you today that God’s law were meant for ALL OF TIME (Genesis through Revelation 22) and not just during “Jewish biblical times!” In short, we (as a nation) AND as individuals have BROKEN GOD’S LAW! And so naturally, Jesus’s patience with us (as individuals and as a NATION) has WORN THIN! Think about when we were younger and we “disobeyed” our parents and so our parents got “angry” and “disappointed” with us and “sent us to our rooms!” So it is with Jesus and the current state of events! Many U.S. states are now going on LOCKDOWN and several people are now “holed up” in their homes for a couple of weeks if not more!

But there’s also another thing we must realize. EVEN in Jesus’s anger, Jesus is oftentimes GRACIOUS. Read any bit in the Old Testament and you will start to see a bigger picture. When God was “mad” at the Israelites, he “smote them” in order to PROTECT THEM FROM FURTHER DAMAGE TO THEMSELVES!

God did that out of LOVE for the Jewish people! God promised them REPEATEDLY, on MULTIPLE OCCASIONS, that IF they repented and turned BACK to HIM, that HE would HAVE MERCY ON THEM *AND* HEAL THEIR LAND! (i.e. 2 Chronicles 7:14!) And so that’s EXACTLY what’s going on here, NOW! God is ANGRY with us (as a nation), yet, he STILL loves us (as a nation), which is WHY he’s bringing about events to WAKE US UP, SPIRITUALLY, to DRAW US BACK TO HIM, and to MAKE US REPENT OF OUR EVIL WAYS!

Another aspect is that Jesus is teaching us NOT TO TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED! Admit it……how many of us (myself included, even) have taken things for granted in our lives (i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, Lysol/Clorox/cleaning products, food, American “freedom”, movie theaters, restaurants, shopping outlets, JESUS HIMSELF, bottled water, family, coworkers, neighbors, jobs, etc.?)

But now that those things are HARD TO COME BY and are NOT GUARANTEED, we Americans (and those around the world) tend to appreciate those things more (in retrospect), am I right? But even worse YET: imagine a world WITHOUT Jesus in it! Imagine a world where there was NO LAW, NO ORDER, NOTHING BUT CHAOS! In retrospect, it makes the “dwindling supplies” and “home quarantines” seem like a walk in the park! (No pun intended).

Therefore, Jesus is showing us a PREVIEW (just a mere PREVIEW) of what a world without him would be like! And the long-term picture of that is NOT PRETTY! You not only have greedy price gougers but you have OTHER buyers as well: PANIC BUYERS!

As soon as Trump announced a national emergency on Friday, March 13, 2020 (just 3 months TO THE DAY from China announcing in media ITS first case of Corona virus), people panicked! Stuff started FLYING off the shelves! First, it was toilet paper! Then it was paper towels, hand sanitizer, wipes, cleaners and everything else in between! People were loading up their carts with 2, 4, 6 or 8+ items! Retail workers were spread thin and had to deal with angry, panicked customers that circled them LIKE VULTURES! And like many doctors and nurses, THEY are on the “front lines” and are “most exposed” to anyone who might have the virus!

And just a few hours after Trump declared an emergency, the shelves were becoming BARE! And then the people who REALLY needed stuff (i.e. elderly, hospitals, etc.) were NOT able to get them! It was such a sad, chaotic site! People had to start going from store to store at the crack of dawn or whenever the store opened and go there day after day after day, just to see if the trucks came in! (i.e. It really sucks when you have to worry about WHEN you’re gonna be able to buy disinfectant wipes, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.!)

But one thing is true: we live in a dog eat dog world and EACH individual family/person is only most likely to be looking out for themselves! Sad but true! JESUS WOULD CRY BITTER, BITTER TEARS IF HE WERE TO SEE HOW PEOPLE (AS A WHOLE) WERE GREEDILY TREATING ONE ANOTHER TODAY!

(And lets face it, how many darn rolls of toilet paper or cans of Lysol does a person truly need, anyways? And believe me, that question goes just as much for MYSELF as anyone else! I’ll admit that in the VERY beginning of the crises, I myself did a very small part of panic buying to help me & my elderly neighbors. But then the Lord CONVICTED me on such measures and I realized that PANIC does NOT equal FAITH! We must have FAITH! For if the Lord provided for the ANCIENT nation of Israel in THEIR time of need, what makes anyone think that He also can’t do so during OUR time of need – provided we still come at him with a humble, repentant, appreciative HEART? It stands to reason!)

IF you have an elderly neighbor or neighbors, or anyone around you who is poor/in-need or immune-compromised (i.e. has cancer or is a most recent cancer survivor and/or has another underlying medical condition), then please, please, PLEASE create a care package for those people and SHARE YOUR SUPPLIES! Because not only does Jesus call us to “love our neighbor as ourself”, but THAT person may be the one who ends up helping US someday if/when WE are in a “jam”, of sorts! (But again, please remember to properly SANITIZE everything before giving to the elderly/immune-compromised and do NOT give them supplies if YOU have been having a cold, cough, fever (even if only a low-grade fever) or breathing problems lately! Because remember, you’re trying to PREVENT the risk for them, NOT increase it by your OWN cold or sickness!) 

Plus a THIRD thing to remember is that we’re ALL gonna be JUDGED someday! We’re all gonna be judged for every word, thought, deed and action! So do you REALLY want to be ETERNALLY JUDGED by Jesus as “GREEDY STEVE” or “GREEDY SUSAN” or “FAITHLESS, FOREVER-PANICKING SHAUN OR JESSICA” at the time in your mortal life on Earth when your less-fortunate neighbors were in THEIR time of need? Me thinks NOT!

Fourthly, we must have F A I T H !

Hebrews 11:16 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. 

James 2:14 “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?”

James 2:17-22Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?”

So in other words, faith + works seems to be MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE! You can’t have one without the other! For if you have FAITH, you need to SHOWCASE that faith to Jesus! Cause otherwise, what’s the point? Think of all the prophets of Old in the Old Testament. NONE of them had faith without works! NOT ONE! And WHY is that, do you think? Likewise, take Paul for example. He had ENORMOUS faith! But if he hadn’t of put that faith INTO ACTION, it all would’ve been for NOTHING! Cause afterall, what’s the POINT of having a FAITH in Jesus if you don’t plan to put that faith INTO ACTION? You might as well pack up your Christian bags and go home if you don’t personally plan on turning your faith into works!

And now, let us examine the EXACT OPPOSITE! Lets say you’re doing righteous works (giving to those in need, etc.) but yet, you DON’T have the FAITH that your works are pleasing to God and/or DON’T have the FAITH that your works are necessary, needed, are making a difference, etc? What would be the POINT of doing those works if you believed it made no difference and HAD no true, spiritual value?

Think about it! A lack of faith makes those “works” for NAUGHT, for NOTHING! However…….IF you have FAITH *PLUS* WORKS, you become likened unto Abraham, who was called a “friend of God!” Why? Because IN your works, you faith is PERFECTED and comes FULL CIRCLE!

For think about it a bit. If Abraham had the faith that God would resurrect his son, yet, DIDN’T offer up Isaac on an altar, (i.e. if Abraham had faith WITHOUT works), what would’ve been the POINT of Abraham’s faith? That would’ve been like Abraham saying or knowing that God had the FULL ABILITY to make Isaac become resurrected, yet, not even LETTING the perfection of faith happen THROUGH his (Abraham’s) works. That would be like one of us saying today: Jesus, I know you have the POWER to do x, y and z, so I don’t even have to ask! What’s the POINT in that, folks? If we want something, we have to trust Jesus AND we have to ask! Otherwise, the Lord Jesus will have nothing to give us in return! Think about it!

Works without faith would’ve been like an ancient Israelite fleeing the Egyptians across the Red Sea saying: “Ok God, I’ll walk across the dryshod by the Red Sea. I don’t REALLY believe you’ll keep the waves at bay AS I walk across, but I’m just gonna blindly walk across here and worryingly hope for the best”.

But yet, faith WITH works would say: “Jesus, I KNOW you have the power to keep the sea waves at bay while I and the rest of the Israelite nation walk across the dryshod. I’m gonna trust you every step of the way and KNOW that you will protect me every precious step of the way. Praise your heavenly and mighty name! Amen”. Notice the difference there, folks?

In scenario #1 and #2, there’s faith without works and works without faith. But in scenario #3, there’s faith PLUS works and/or faith being perfected/showcased THROUGH works! Is that making any sense, folks? I’ve tried to explain it the best way I can and the best way I know how.

But here is where I get into the nitty gritty of things: PANIC BUYING SHOWS A LACK OF FAITH! Remember when the Hebrew Israelites were stranded out in the desert for their “disobedience” and “lack of faith?” God had just done a MOST AMAZING miracle where he PARTED THE RED SEA and TOOK THEM OUT OF EGYPT! And they sung songs of praise (The Song of Moses) and were all happy when they stopped at a place called ELIM (a place said to have 12 springs and 70 PALMS, according to the bible; God was ‘rewarding” them for their PRAISE OF HIM, it seems….However, I think God was worried that if they stayed at “ELIM” (the “place of Oasis”) TOO LONG, that they would just as soon FORGET HIM again and think that they “didn’t need him anymore since everything was fine!”

And don’t quote me on this but I’m almost willing to bet that God felt “unsure” about the true state of their spiritual HEARTS at that time. He was likely thinking among himself rather or not their faith was “genuine” or merely “conditional” (i.e. seeing is believing sort’ve thing). Therefore, he likely reasoned with himself (and possibly his angels?) at that moment in time that it would be wise (and fair and just, even) to TEST THEM and to TEST THEIR HEART/FAITH! But in order to do that, He knew he’d have to send them AWAY from “ELIM”……away to a place that was BARREN with NO WATER, just to SEE if they trusted in HIM and HIM ALONE (The God of Israel) to PROVIDE!

And that’s sort’ve what I see happening with today’s society, TODAY! When all the conservative/Christian/patriotic people in our land cried out for an American-loving president who would help SAVE OUR JOBS, OUR ECONOMY, OUR COUNTRY and our RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, in walked President Trump! And when evil TRIED to wax worse and worse in this country and GET RID of Trump, with the heartfelt prayers of many born-again Christians, Trump PREVAILED against all clamour and all opposition! It was unlike anything I’d ever SEEN! I simply KNEW that was from the Lord above and NO OTHER REASON!

However, here’s the clincher: America has been in our “ELIM” for TOO LONG! For the past 3 years or so, we’ve had it AMAZINGLY GOOD here in America! Our military, our economy, our stocks, our jobs, our religious liberty and/or patriotism was at an ALL-TIME HIGH! In the past 2 years alone, Christians have become LACKLUSTER and LUKEWARM! Why? Because with Trump and Pence in office and the economy doing EXTREMELY well, there was (many felt) no longer a need for JESUS!

“America’s good, the economy’s good, jobs are good, so what do we need God for?” seemed to become the attitude of MANY! And it started off so subtle: David Daleiden & Sandra Merrit were charged for recording members of Planned Parenthood without their knowledge, Alex Jones was taken off the air, Christian businesses were SUED/SHUT DOWN for going against the LGBT “mafia”, etc. And those few events put ALOT of fear into Christian’s souls: “If those things can happen to THOSE Christians, then just what’s gonna happen to ME if *I* share too much about Jesus on Facebook or other social media?” many feared. And so it began. Instead of The Great Awakening, it became The Dreadful LUKEWARMING. And the hedonistic left couldn’t be any the happier! For finally, in THEIR hedonistic eyes, they had WON! They had (as a whole) overtaken the Christians and HIJACKED THE CULTURE!

Many Christians found that disheartening and got really, really discouraged, almost practically giving up, due to how evil the world is, today! However, in the past 6 months or so, there’s been some slight spiritual revival and pushback! Again, due to the DILIGENT prayers of the born-again Christians in this country and around the world, the left FINALLY saw some pushback! And when this pushback received a few GREAT VICTORIES for Christians in this country and around the world, the praising of God/Jesus didn’t last too long!

For once again, AFTER those short great victories, the Christians (as a whole) once again let things go to their head, once again put Jesus on the back burner as they went about their daily lives and once again FORSOOK HIM! That’s when Jesus and the heavenly council in heaven decided they had NO CHOICE but to SHAKE THINGS UP IN THIS COUNTRY (AND OTHER COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD) IN ORDER TO DRASTICALLY GET OUR ATTENTION!

Let us now turn back to the story of the Israelites out in the desert for 40 years. AFTER they left “Elim”, guess what happened? They were taken to a place with NO WATER and IMMEDIATELY began to GRIPE AND COMPLAIN to Moses (a foreshadowing of Jesus, of sorts) ABOUT the lack of water and accused God of “sending them out there to DIE!” That was a pretty tall and severe accusation, back in ancient biblical times! And God did NOT take that one lightly!

Imagine if you, a parent, made a most amazing meal for your child and they talked about how delicious it was and how much they appreciated it. The next day, around the same time you made the previous day’s meal, you didn’t make the meal right away but instead were waiting on the child to politely WAIT on you or politely ask you to make one. And what a good, blessed meal you wanted to make them! But instead of waiting and trusting you and/or POLITELY asking you to make one, your child just griped, yelled, complained, threw a fit and immediately accused you of wanting to starve them to death (literally, not figuratively!) Imagine how you would FEEL!

If God had truly wanted to kill the Israelites, he could’ve drowned them in the sea WITH the Egyptians but he didn’t. Why? Because his goal was to SAVE them, not CONDEMN THEM! (“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” – John 3:17)

We are at such a place NOW in our lives, folks! We are at that crossroads where we’re gonna have to decide (not only individually but as a NATION): Are we gonna turn back from our sins (as individuals AND as a nation) and TRUST GOD or are we gonna keep DEFYING GOD and decide to PERMANENTLY AND IRREPARABLY invite GOD’S WRATH upon our nation (and possibly upon the world) instead? We’ve NEVER, EVER, EVER been at a more CRITICAL time in our world’s and nation’s history!

So in conclusion, here are the FIVE things I’ve touched on so far in this post: FAITH, REPENTANCE, TRUST OF JESUS, PRAISING OF JESUS and WORKS! If you lack ANY of these FIVE, ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE (Matthew 7:7-8 states: “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”). 

Now……what about those people who have lost their jobs and/or their homes so far? What’s in store for THEM, you may ask? Well, we can turn to the bible for the answers:

  • In the Old Testament, we read about a guy named Job (pronounced Yobe). He was a rich servant of God. Satan said to God that the ONLY reason Job was a good faithful servant is BECAUSE he was rich. So Satan challenged God to take away all that Job had, in order to see rather or not Job would curse God in the process. In the end, Job learned to TRUST GOD and he regained TEN-FOLD what he had lost!
  • In the New Testament, we read a parable that JESUS told about THE PRODIGAL SON. The youngest of the TWO brothers wanted his inheritance early and went out and spent it all. He ended up sweeping up pig poop for a living and eating the scraps the pigs left behind. Suddenly realizing his “condition”, he determined to go back to his father as a “hired servant”, telling his father he was “wrong”. But upon seeing him from a distance, his father RAN to meet him and embrace him and put fine clothes and linen on him and had a feast of homecoming for him!

Therefore, what can we gather and GLEAN from those two situations? In the FIRST scenario, the prophet Job decides to PRAISE GOD IN GOOD TIMES *AND* IN BAD TIMES, realizing that God is SOVEREIGN and ONLY takes away something from someone if he thinks that person can glean SPIRITUAL ENDURANCE and SPIRITUAL GROWTH from it. And WHEN Job praised God (even amongst all clamour and opposition), he received back TENFOLD what he lost!

Therefore, his “riches” became TEN times greater AFTER trusting God through it all! And in the 2ND scenario, the poor son LOST EVERYTHING (EVERY PENNY) and was forced to work in the LOWEST OF LOW OCCUPATIONS. However, as soon as he REPENTED and came back home to his father, he was DILIGENTLY REWARDED!

So what do we learn from all of this? IT PAYS TO TRUST IN THE LORD! NO MATTER WHAT! No matter how bad it gets, you are NEVER ALONE and you are NEVER out of the reach of Almighty God, so remember that, people! Remember also HOW MUCH the Israelites were blessed EVERY single time they TRUSTED GOD but also how they were CURSED or TESTED every time they did NOT trust God or FULLY trust God!

For example, even though MOSES trusted God – for the first few seconds, even Moses HIMSELF was probably thinking something along the lines of: Cast my stick towards the Deep Red Sea? But what if the ENTIRE SEA turns into a big, gigantic SNAKE MONSTER? What then? – my guess is that the majority of the Israelites did NOT or only PARTIALLY trusted God at best, during the Red Sea crossing. They likely had the attitude of: Well, MAYBE this will work out and we’ll be protected, who knows, really?

In other words, they had a half-hearted FAITH! There’s no doubt in my mind that the Lord blessed the nation of Israel at “ELIM” on the ACCOUNT of Moses’s faith during the Red Sea crossing! Just like there’s now no doubt in my mind that the good Lord has previously blessed our nation of America (and other nations around the world) on ACCOUNT of the diligent prayers (AND FAITH) of His faithful ones! But when the Israelites came to the next stop and there was NO WATER, that’s where the TRUE TESTING OF THEIR HEARTS BEGAN!

Therefore, America (and other countries around the world) have HAD their fair share of experiencing “ELIM”. NOW is the TIME OF TESTING! Only, the difference is, THIS IS THE LAST STOP! This is the LAST MAJOR TEST before THE GREAT EVENT that’ll quickly super-cede or USHER IN THE ANTICHRIST/Mark of the Beast/New World Order Society!

So therefore, HOW we act at THIS TIME (as individuals AND as a nation) will determine the FINAL OUTCOME! Will we TURN BACK TO JESUS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS before it’s too late, REPENTING of all our SINS (individually AND nationally) or will we CONTINUE to DEFY JESUS and his commands (as individuals and as a nation) and INVOKE GOD’S COMPLETE WRATH UPON OUR NATION, ONCE AND FOR ALL? Only time will tell.

While I don’t know what sins you need to repent of as an INDIVIDUAL (that’s between you and Jesus), I DO know all the SINS that America MUST REPENT OF, AS A NATION: (NOTE: many things on this “list” of national sins can apply to other countries of the world, too, such as “abortion and the lobbying/funding for it”, “euthanasia”, “LGBT sodomy”, etc.)

BLASPHEMOUS Amazon Documentary Paints Jesus As Nothing More Than “GREEK Philosopher”

An Amazon Prime documentary has made claim that Jesus Christ was not a Jew from Nazareth, but rather a Greek philosopher named Apollonius, born in the Anatolia region of Turkey.

The above false, biblical theory about Jesus is being put out by the group known as “Bible Conspiracies”, who also claim such unbiblical whoppers as “an alien race known as the Annunaki destroyed the tower of Babel” and also that “Sodom & Gomorrah were actually taken out by a nuclear explosion!”

Not withstanding, it only got a 2 STAR RATING, with many viewers on Amazon voicing their displeasure with the highly blasphemous film:

“The writers of this film not only have NO actual Biblical knowledge, they quote many myths that have been not only been disproved, but are laughed at in theological circles. In this video, there are no experts, no theologians, only many rhetorical lies that are often spewed by evolutionists and atheists.”

Yet another viewer said the following:

“Does not live up to its name – doesn’t reveal any Bible ‘conspiracies’ only tries to cast doubt on the Bible with no historical evidence or interviews with trustworthy experts, just pure conjecture.”

[[Source: https://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/jesus-is-actually-a-greek-philosopher-new-amazon-documentary-theorizes.html]]

Apollonius of Perga was BORN 262BC in Perga, Turkey and DIED around 190BC in Alexandria, Egypt. So already right there, we can KNOW beyond 100% fact that Apollonius didn’t even LIVE around the same time as Jesus/Yeshua!!!!! (Although if ya want to claim that he invented mathemtical “conic sections”, you might possibly be on to something there, but I digress…..)

Sadly, this “blasphemous documentary” on Jesus is just one of MANY! Several of these “bible conspiracy” documentaries try to shed light on HOW God/Jesus did the things He did……such as HOW He performed his divine miracles and their “secular reasoning” is WAY, WAY OFF!

There’s also false claims (in general) from “skeptics” about HOW Jesus was able to walk on the sea or make wine from water, etc. And UNLESS a person has KNOWLEDGE of the bible, they’re gonna fall victim to many of these false and blasphemous “documentaries”. And these “documentaries” ALL have ONE goal in common: to BLASPHEME JESUS/YESHUA……..either by saying he “never existed” or that the “Jesus of the bible is NOT the actual Jesus”, etc.

Now, I don’t write about this false, blasphemous Amazon Prime documentary to deceive or confuse you but rather to INFORM you about the works of the enemy! Now…..true, most of you will probably be smart enough to see past the Devil’s lies on that one! But an “unsaved person” probably would NOT be able to tell the difference between the biblical Jesus and the false “Jesus” that this documentary promotes! Therefore, I pray that ALL who read this post will simply KNOW that the Amazon prime documentary claiming that Jesus was actually a Greek philosopher is FALSE, FALSE, FALSE!

And P.S.: After this “false documentary” coming to light, I’m now thinking on rather or not I should boycott or severely limit my Amazon usage from now on. For by LETTING this blasphemous documentary on Jesus come to Amazon Prime TO BEGIN WITH, Amazon has now made it abundantly clear to me that they do NOT represent the TRUE, JEWISH, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible in any way, shape or form! Nor do they any longer truly represent ME, a born-again Christian customer!

So perhaps from now on, I should just start using Barnes & Noble or think of another alternative UNTIL Amazon REMOVES that blasphemous “false Jesus” documentary. And then, once and if they DO, I will once again resume shopping at Amazon since I admit that I love shopping there. But seriously. What’s the point of my shopping there on Amazon anymore if they no longer want to truly represent me as a born-again Christian customer? Am I over-reacting? Taking it a bit too far, perhaps?

I don’t think so. Because after having met Jesus personally during an N.D.E., I do NOT take any “blasphemous” things about him too lightly! It feels like a personal punch in the gut to me whenever somebody and/or some “corporation” is trying to say false or bad things about Jesus and so I can’t stand that!

Lets face it folks, it would really be no different than if some random stranger (a business owner) came up to you and boldly declared a bald-faced lie about one of your loved ones. If you just KNEW that what they were saying about your loved one was BLATANTLY FALSE and had NO MERIT whatsoever, you’d be pretty put off, too! (I’m actually not sure if I’m more hurt or ANGRY whenever I see someone or something blaspheming Jesus, the one and only true Messiah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

However, sometimes I DO believe that Jesus ALLOWS us to experience OTHERS blaspheming him in OUR presense in order to remind US of who HE is! Let me explain. I saw Jesus during an N.D.E., therefore, I KNOW beyond 100% FACT that he’s the one and only true Messiah! However, sometimes I believe he allows us to come across knowledge of things such as the “blasphemous documentary about him” on Amazon, etc., in order to RE-AFFIRM who he is!

In other words, by ALLOWING that false documentary about him on Amazon, he’s letting us know that he WASN’T a “Greek philosopher”. If that makes any sense? Plus I also think he allows such things in order to test the HEARTS of people. Let me elaborate. Okay, so lets say average Joe Schmoe or Sally Jane sees the documentary claiming Jesus was nothing more than a Greek philosopher.

Perhaps Jesus then wants to test the HEARTS of “Joe Schmoe” and/or “Sally Jane” in order to see if “Joe” and/or “Sally” just take the documentary’s word for it……OR if “Joe” and/or “Sally” decide to look into it a bit more and do the actual research for themselves as in, “Is THAT true? Is that REALLY what happened? What is the EVIDENCE for THAT claim?”

But yet, here’s the clincher: Even if “Joe” or “Sally” DO just take the documentary’s word for it (and soon publicly declare the documentary’s “theory” among family, friends, coworkers and strangers), they’ll soon likely come across someone (rather Christian or not) that tells them: “Actually, there’s NO historical basis for the documentary’s claims…..the Greek philosopher lived long before Jesus was supposedly born, so….?”

And THAT will then get the “Joe” and “Sally” people searching on a DIFFERENT quest of sorts: “Wait, WHAT? What do you MEAN it’s not true? How IS the evidence lacking?” They will then be FORCED to look into the LACK of evidence from the documentary and come to realize that the makers of the documentary were just out to mock God and make a cheap buck. And then ofcourse, that will send them on another “quest for truth”, altogether……perhaps a quest for JESUS’S TRUE BIBLICAL TRUTH, even (which could never be a BAD thing……)

But that reasoning aside, I DO think that Jesus tests our knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time in order to keep us on our spiritual toes. I call it “spiritual discernment training”. Because lets face it, if Jesus doesn’t fine-tune our spiritual knowledge of him and his gospel from time to time, we will become suspectible to spiritual deception and Jesus and the Holy Spirit don’t want that, which is WHY we oftentimes come across blasphemous things about Jesus that make us stop, take a step back, and say to ourselves: “Wait a minute…..THAT can’t be true…….it contradicts the bible here, here and here…..that’s BLASPHEMY!”

And when we get to the point where we ARE able to recognize something as “blasphemous” or “biblically false”, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are never more proud of us! It’s like they’re saying in unison, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – [John 10:27-28]

However, the people that willingly BELIEVE the “blasphemy?” Especially in the current End Times in which we’re now living in? Jesus has THIS to say:

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” – 2 Timothy 3:4

Can we say OUCH? But to put it in a deeper context, I want to quote another bible passage that I think reiterates the point:

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12]

So in other words, in the FIRST passage up above (in 2 Timothy 3:4), people are believing what they “think” or what they “feel” should be biblically true (i.e. “I believe that ALL people should go to heaven unless they were like, Hitler or something”). And BECAUSE of the total “hardness” of their hearts, and their “stubborness” IN believing in what THEY “think” or “feel” should be the gospel truth, instead of the ACTUAL gospel truth, Jesus then in turn ALLOWS them to believe and feel whatever they want (EVEN IF what they “believe” and “feel” should be the gospel truth isn’t the true gospel truth AT ALL!)

And through the time and over the years, Jesus tries INNUMERABLE ways to try to “chip away” at their stubborn, cold hearts. But IF they don’t repent (and then later go on to to take the Mark of the Beast – thus believing in the “strong delusion” of the Antichrist’s lies – and lets face it, Mark of the Beast is the ULTIMATE STRONG DELUSION OF DELUSIONS), Jesus has NO CHOICE but to DAMN THAT PERSON’S SOUL FOR ETERNITY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! OUCH! ;-(

There’s many mockers and scoffers out there in these last days, making “mockumentaries galore” (rather it’s movies, tv shows, magazine covers, album covers, social media posts, newspaper articles, books, SNL – Saturday Night Live, or whatever have you). And my oh my how I just PRAY for all those lost souls. For they just have NO IDEA what all they’re up against if they die without the saving grace of Jesus Christ! Many think that “hell won’t be that bad”.

Well, the fires of hell aren’t even eternal. Why? Because they’re gonna be MERGED WITH the fire in the LAKE OF FIRE! And the fires of hell are 10,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter (I know……because an angel told me during a near-suicide experience several years ago…….And I was even somewhat skeptical of the angel’s words, until I did the “research” for myself by reading the Revelation passages where it’s mentioned the fires of hell will merge with the lake of fire). And the lake of fire is 100,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell and 1,000,000,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter! So YOU do the math, folks!

Some think: “Hey! No problem! People’ll just burn till they’re consumed, then they’ll cease to exist”. Well, I post THIS in response to their “false, lukewarm assumptions”:

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

“Oh but certainly that couldn’t be mean FOREVER & EVER”, some panicked atheist or lukewarm Christian often says. But that’s NOT what the bible says, my friends! It says FOREVER and EVER! For ETERNITY! It also says they have NO REST day or night! Translation? They WILL be tormented for eternity! Why? Because they CHOSE to be tormented for eternity by REJECTING Jesus’s sacrifice for them (and for all of mankind) on the cross of Calvary!

“Oh but certainly a LOVING GOD wouldn’t DO such a thing”, some panicked person somewhere still argues in their heart, in response. Think of it THIS way: If a parent sends off their hateful, cold-hearted, ungrateful, spiteful, vengeful, angry child off to “boot camp” or “military school” to try to straighten them out and they come back even WORSE than before or just AS worse as they were before they went there, then the parent SADLY has no choice but to PERMANETLY DISOWN their child!

But imagine this slightly differently: Imagine the loving parent warning the child: “If you come back from military school just as bad or worse than before, and don’t repent of your hateful behavior towards me, then I will have no choice but to eternally disown you and throw you into an eternal burning heap of torment“, and the child then CHOOSES to not repent after that time of “boot camp” or “military school”, then the parent, sadly, has NO CHOICE but to follow through with their ultimatum.

Why? Because they KNOW, they just simply KNOW, that if they let their hateful, spiteful, UNREPETANT kid back into their house again, that the kid will just hate them 10 TIMES MORE than before! And not only THAT but they ALSO chose ANOTHER “parental figure”, one who LIES to them and only wants to DESTROY THEM! You, as the loving parent, and through all your OBEDIENT children, try so desperately to tell your “wayward child” THE TRUTH about THE ENEMY, but they just simply won’t listen…..

THE ENEMY is now their “god” and YOU, the loving parent, are now spiritually left in the dust in their life! And so NOW, when this “wayward child” demands to come home but hurts you again and again and again, you have NO CHOICE but to follow up with your ultimatem………..and leave THEM in the dust, eternally perishing in fire………which is sadly what your “wayward child” had secretly wanted all along by NOT listening to you, the loving parent!

So it is with God! He is like the “loving parent” and “creator” that desperately loves us and wants us to love him back and obey him! But IF we choose NOT to obey him and NOT to accept his eternal gift of Salvation through Jesus, then he has NO CHOICE but to throw us into the lake of fire for all eternity! And he takes NO PLEASURE in that! Absolutely NONE!

In fact, 2 Peter 3:9 states: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

Translation? Jesus does not want anyone to “perish”. But IF a person chooses (by their own actions) to REJECT CHRIST and his commandments, then Jesus has no choice but to ALLOW that unfortunate soul to “perish”. Jesus can’t undo what he SAYS he will do, cause otherwise, he wouldn’t be God! Think about it, folks! 

Plus John 3:16 boldly declares: “For God [The Heavenly Father] so loved the world [mankind], that he [The Heavenly Father] gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] shall not perish [go to the lake of fire for eternity] but have eternal life” [Eternal Life with Jesus Christ in “Paradise”] 

We ARE The Last Generation: Biblical Proof

The End Times have fascinated many a soul since the time of Daniel. When Daniel was shown “visions of the End” (in the Old Testament), he initially had NO IDEA about the meaning of what he was seeing or WHY! In fact, the archangel Gabriel had to come down and explain the meaning of the vision to him.

And just imagine this for a moment, folks. Imagine if you had lived back during the times of Daniel….Imagine you saw this awesome, dreadful vision but you had NO IDEA what that vision MEANT! But yet, you KNEW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that bad things were about to happen, as it pertained to God’s Wrath! Imagine how HEAVY that would weigh upon your HEART and SOUL!

Okay, now fast forward to the times of Jesus & his disciples upon the Earth. Jesus’s disciples, like Daniel, were ALSO highly concerned about the End Times and thought often ABOUT them, apparently. And one day, they came to Jesus privately and asked him what the signs of the “end of the age” would be. And Jesus answered them. This is all recorded in the Book of Matthew 24 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24].

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

It reads as follows:

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

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

Okay, so right off the bat, Jesus told us SEVERAL signs of the End Times in Matthew 24:

THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS:

  • There shall be many “false Christs” (i.e. people falsely claiming to be Jesus/the 2nd coming of Jesus)
  • There shall be wars and RUMORS of wars
  • Nation shall rise against nation; kingdom against kingdom
  • Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes, in diverse places

These 4 above signs (all well under way already, in today’s world) are what Jesus calls “The Beginning of Sorrows”. But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..there’s more:

  • Christians shall be delivered up to be afflicted, and killed
  • Christians shall be hated of all nations for Christ’s name sake
  • Many will be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another
  • Many false prophets will arise & deceive MANY
  • Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold
  • And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come

Okay, so interestingly enough in Matthew 24, we’ve got 10 signs total that Jesus has given us there in that passage of Matthew 24: 1-14! (Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?) Now…..has there been any actual evidence OF those 10 signs coming to pass already, in today’s world? The resounding answer is ofcourse, YES! Let us examine:

Here are all the signs that we’re living in the Last Days (talked about in more detail), while down below the url, I’ll give summaries of the “proof” of the 10 signs mentioned in Matthew 24:

8.) Many false prophets will arise and deceive MANY. CHECK!

But by “false prophets”, the bible’s not JUST talking about those falsely claiming to be Christ! It’s talking about other people, too……The Pope, Catholic clergy, wayward Christian pastors, liberal college professors, secular scientists, entertainers, authors, wayward Christians, atheists and/or people living in sin (as in, PERPETUAL SIN), etc.

9.) Because iniquity [sin] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. CHECK!

10). And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world unto a witness to all nations; and then the End shall come. [CURRENTLY IN PROCESS!]

I’ve met more than a few foreigners living here in the United States who are of other religions who’ve NEVER heard of Jesus before! (SERIOUSLY!) So apparently, not ALL souls of the world have had a chance to hear about Jesus, yet. But ONCE they do…….THE END WILL COME!!!

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

So there’s much debate on just WHAT generation Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24. From original glance at the biblical text, it would appear that Jesus is talking to his 12 DISCIPLES’ generation! SO the average person would think, “Well, the Earth is still here some 1,985 years later, so I guess Jesus’s word didn’t come true, then!” But to THOSE skeptics that say as such, I say to them all in response “NOT SO FAST!”

Jesus had given his disciples a good 10 SIGNS! (And think about it, that’s ALOT of signs, folks! Alot!) So now lets look at the exact wording that Jesus used in Matthew 24: 34: “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till ALL these things be fulfilled“. 

Okay, now exactly WHAT generation is Jesus talking about, there? Does he mean the generation of his own time, his disciples’ time? Or does he mean THE MODERN GENERATION? Lets take a closer look at the very LAST part of Jesus’s statement: “till ALL these things be fulfilled”. What things? The 10 signs!!!!!!! 

Therefore, let me put this differently. THE generation that Jesus is talking about is THE End Times Generation that would see ALL “10 Signs” come to pass……SIMULTANEOUSLY! Or in other words, WE are that LAST generation, folks! WE (humankind) on this Earth have ALREADY lived through the first 9 SIGNS, with the 10th one now BEING IN PROCESS!!!!!!! That’s how WE can know that WE are “The Last Generation” of HUMANKIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which means Jesus’s 2nd return to the Earth is EVER. MORE. CLOSER. More closer than what we had EVER initially imagined! Therefore, we must REPENT of our sins! That means to give them up and STOP doing them! STOP doing the things that YOU know in YOUR heart and soul is displeasing to God/Jesus! Time is of the essence, folks! We NEVER know when we’re going to DIE! Time to GET RIGHT with Christ! Time to GET OUR HOUSES IN ORDER! 

Jesus had THIS to ask of the Christians that he KNEW would be living on the Earth around the time of his 2nd Return to Earth: “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

I’m gonna repeat that once more so you, dear reader, can MEDITATE on Jesus’s question to “the church”: “……NEVERTHELESS, WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?” 

Folks, that’s a question that cuts at the VERY heart & soul!!!! Trust me folks, the bible doesn’t call the Lord’s truth a 2-EDGED SWORD for NOTHING! In fact, Hebrews 4:12 states: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”

And folks, that does NOT even included all of the OTHER End Times signs that we’re seeing as well: 

Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased

“Many shall run to and fro” is simply talking about TRAVEL/TRAVELING/TRANSPORT! We have transport ALL OVER THE WORLD right now! And “knowledge shall be increased”. This one’s not hard to figure out, folks! Look at just HOW ADVANCED technology has become, just in the last 5-10 years, ALONE! It is just MIND-BOGGLING! 

Daniel 7:25And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, AND THINK TO CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time”

For those in the “biblical know”, think back to the time when Obama “mocked” Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5-7! THIS is what the bible is referring to as it pertains to “mocking the Most High” [God/Jesus].

Also: Think about the June 26, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that “legalized” the concept of “gay marriage” all across the 50 states of the U.S.! This what the bible means when it’s talking about “changing TIMES and LAWS”. And in this context, I believe the word “times” COULD possibly mean “culture”, as in “the culture of our time(s)”. Ofcourse, we could also take that literally, as in, the biblical sabbath “law” was CHANGED from Saturday, the 7th day of the week, to Sunday, the FIRST day of the week by Constantine and the Catholic Church during the Council of Nicea! 

2 Timothy 3: 1-5 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”

One does NOT have to look far to see how we, as a society, and as a global world, have become today, character-wise (as a collective whole). Just hop on Youtube, for example. And think. THINK. Where did the concept of “the selfie” come from? Hint: SELF! Worship of SELF! Me, me, me. me, ME! We’re a self-indulged society.

In fact, just do a minor “trolling” of a random person’s Facebook, Youtube or Instragram page, and you’ll see what I mean. The “average person” is all about likes, subscribers, ratings and so on. Plus the TOTAL ARROGANCE that some of the “most famous Youtubers” have is just MIND-BOGGLING, to say the least!

But then I have to ask myself this question: How did WE, as a society, get here? How did we, humanity, get here to this place where now our self-worth (as a whole) seems to be determined by our looks or how many likes/subscribers we have and so on and so forth? But then the answer hits me, as clear as day: These times were “prophesied” long, long ago, before any of us were EVEN BORN! And what Jesus says will come to pass WILL come to pass! MARK MY WORDS!

But again, all one has to do is examine the evidence! Examine the biblical evidence that we’re living in THE LAST DAYS! The evidence of THE LAST DAYS is ALL AROUND US! Yet, many have their heads in the sand! Yes, there’s been earthquakes and natural disasters before. BUT NEVER TO THIS DEGREE (that we’ve now been seeing in the last 5 years or so) AND ***NEVER SIMULTANEOUSLY!***

Also: Lets us ALSO not forget Revelation, chapter 13! [New Testament, book of Revelation, Chapter 13]. This chapter talks about a VERY SOON coming one world gov’t comprised of a one world economy, one world religion and one world political system! The head of the one world gov’t will be none other than THE ANTICHRIST!

And the Antichrist WILL PERFORM **FALSE MIRACLES** IN ORDER TO **DECEIVE** THE MASSES! He will make fire come down from heaven in the site of men, etc.! He will require ALL of the Earth’s inhabitants to TAKE A MARK on their right hand or in their foreheads in order to be able to buy and sell! (JESUS SAID WHOMEVER TAKES THE ANTICHRIST’S/”FALSE WORLD MESSIAH”/ONE WORLD GOV’T LEADER’S MARK WILL BE *DAMNED* FOR *ALL* OF ETERNITY! OUCH!) 

And those signs, compared with the Matthew 24 signs, compared with all of the OTHER end times bible signs? Folks, it’s a no brainer! We ARE the Last Generation of the world, Jesus’s 2nd Coming is NEAR and we DO need to repent of all our sins and get saved in the name of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all with ALL my heart! Please don’t say I didn’t warn you! Amen. 

 
 

Will The Antichrist Be A Human-like “ANDROID?” Could Mark of the Beast Happen TOMORROW?

For years and years and years, we were told by most of the biblical scholars that The Antichrist – (the one world gov’t leader) during the End Times/Tribulation – would be a HUMAN man indwelt with the power of Satan! However, most of those biblical scholars were over-looking ONE simple thing and that’s THIS: Satan HATES the image of God! 

In Genesis (the very first book of the Old Testament), we’re told that both men and women were naturally made in the IMAGE OF GOD! So what does that mean, essentially? It means that humans were modeled after God’s image and that God’s “authenticated signature” is on our NATURAL DNA! Therefore, ANY form of genetic-diversion from that’s AN INVERSION of the holy image of God!

We know from the bible that Satan LOVES “counterfeits”. Example: God designed natural procreation, traditional marriage and traditional family. But throughout the ages, (especially in the 21st century), Satan has now developed UN-NATURAL PROCREATION (IVF/surrogacy/”test tube babies”), “gay marriage” and “the gay family”. Do you see how Satan likes to INVERT THINGS?

Jesus is part of the HOLY TRINITY: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. But during the End Times (in which we’re currently now living in), Satan will be part of the UN-HOLY TRINITY: Satan (the “anti-God” god), The Antichrist & the Un-Holy Spirit! In other words, everything that Jesus has in the RIGHTEOUS/HOLY MODEL, Satan has to try to re-create for himself in the UN-RIGHTEOUS MODEL.

Therefore, by spiritual and deductive reasoning, we can more or less ascertain that The Antichrist will very likely NOT be of full human blood/human DNA but “an Android”, an UN-NATURAL, SYNTHETICALLY-CREATED being! Because while the Antichrist could STILL theoretically be some sort of IVF-created being, IVF still has minor “vestiges” of the image of God in it (i.e. sperm and egg). Therefore, in order to counteract that, Satan has to come up with something that’s NOT made in the image of God (hence, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE and DNA-TAMPERING!)

Now…..could the Antichrist still theoretically be a “cyborg” of sorts, part human, part machine? Perhaps. But something tells me that won’t be the case. Something tells me that Satan’s gonna try to go SO deep into this thing (counteracting the “image of God”), that the Antichrist likely won’t have ANY human DNA in it, whatsoever! But yet, the Antichrist, this “male Android”, in my opinion, will look, talk, walk like, move like and sound SO HUMAN, that practically NO human being (save for the Lord’s people) will be none the wiser!

And I think the REASON why the male Android must look, sound, move, walk and talk as much like a human as possible is SO THAT humans will grow to love it/him. Because if the Android was in any way robot-sounding, many humans would hesitate to “worship it”. But……if it sounds, talks, walks, looks and “acts human”, then hey, a HUMAN man they will worship, right, folks?

Not to mention it also fits in with “computer block-chain technology”, “drone armies”, and “the real-like Skynet” scenarios. It actually makes more sense for the Antichrist himself to be a highly-advanced human-looking Android (in my mind) rather than just a mere cyborg. Cyborgs will be a dime a dozen when the time comes. Therefore, something must TRULY stand out with the Antichrist.

There has to be something that distinguishes him from all the rest. And true, he’d likely have other human-like Androids at his disposal. But there’ll be something spectacular about this ONE particular “model”. Perhaps the “DNA” from all the most evil people in history will be “inserted” and programmed into this “Android”. Or perhaps the Antichrist WILL be a “lab created being” with all the DNA from the world’s most evilest people inserted into it. But one thing’s for sure: The Antichrist MUST in some way, shape or form be a true COUNTERFEIT to the true, NATURAL DNA “image of God”, THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

In some previous blog posts and Youtube videos, I’ve already discussed the IMAGE OF THE BEAST (which is no doubt Artificial Intelligence, ITSELF!) Therefore, it stands to reason: if the IMAGE OF THE BEAST is more or less here on this Earth ALREADY, how much CLOSER is the OFFICIAL ARRIVAL of THE Antichrist upon the WORLD STAGE? And furthermore, how likely it is that THE Antichrist will be THE MOST ADVANCED human-like Android that the world has ever seen?{Though, like I said, the world wouldn’t KNOW he’s even an “Android” – IF he’s an Android – cause he’ll talk, move, and sound SO human, that most will be none the wiser!)}

But again, that’s just my own “spiritual theory”. I could be wrong about the Antichrist being an “Android”. The Antichrist (for all I know) actually COULD be part human, part something else (be it machine or whatever). But what I DO know is that The Antichrist will arrive…..SOON! Very, very soon! Are you ready, folks? Are you ready for The Mark of the Beast system to be installed soon? Are you ready to be PERSECUTED and/or possibly put to DEATH for YOUR faith in Christ? GET READY!

I can just picture and visualize it, NOW. We wake up one day and go to the bank and or go online to access our funds and NO FUNDS ARE THERE! We’re IMMEDIATELY confused, not knowing as to what’s going on. Our first thought will be that all of the banking systems are down, due to some imminent “terrorist attack” on our country. So we go on Youtube or flip on the news……….and likely see a totally DIFFERENT news broadcast announcement unfolding:

Attention ALL global citizens of the world: There is now a NEW global financial system. Cash, credit cards and debit are now obsolete. ALL banking accounts now APPEAR to have a balance of ZERO! But have no fear…….for when YOU get YOUR new global ID and get the proper mark associated with said ID, you will have a set of new *global credits* in your account. Each person automatically gets a set of *100,000 global credits* starting out……..However……..AS you continue to contribute more to “the one world system”, you will gain more and more *global credits* into your account! P.S.: Don’t worry about your previous bank balance before today’s balance of ZERO…….that previous balance will ALSO be reconverted into a special “transfer account”, which you’ll be able to access after 30 days, after taking The Mark!” 

Many people will IMMEDIATELY get the new “global ID” and “global ID implant” in order to gain access to these new “global credits”. Because hey, nobody likes the thought of starving to death and/or not being able to feed their own families, right? There’ll even be cases of many employers and employees rushing out to get this mark. And then the REAL TEST begins, folks! How much longer will WE – (the bible-believing, bible-obeying Christians) hold out – while all the rest of those around us RECEIVE “The Mark” in their right hands or in their foreheads?

Some people are the ONLY bible-believing Christian in their family. So what’s gonna happen when their ENTIRE FAMILY gets “The Mark” and they are the ONLY ONE without it? How much longer will they be able to WITHSTAND THE MARK while the rest of their “Mark-adhering family members” taunt them SEVERAL times a day to “get the mark, get the mark, get the mark?”

In fact, Evangelist Anita Fuentes of OpenYourEyesPeople ministry brought up a VERY good point during one of her most recent Youtube sermons: Folks, if you can’t even resist a CHOCOLATE BAR, etc. *NOW*, what makes you think you’ll be ready to resist The *Mark of The Beast* LATER?” 

And I just LOVED the way in which she said that because she’s right…..The Mark of the Beast will be the ULTIMATE temptation of temptations EVER KNOWN TO MAN…..The most DAMNABLE temptation that mankind has EVER EXPERIENCED!

And true, while many Christians may be able to hold out for a week, 2 weeks or a month, after awhile, the LONGER they go without taking The Mark, the BIGGER and BIGGER the temptation is going to become to GET “The Mark”. Because remember that Revelation 13 in the New Testament says that NO man, woman OR child will be able to buy or sell WITHOUT THE MARK! Just like Revelation 13 ALSO says that all of whom do NOT take the Mark WILL BE KILLED! 

Another thing the bible touches on is that ALL those whose names are NOT recorded in the Lamb’s book of Life [Jesus’s record book of all his faithful followers] WILL be deceived by both The Antichrist [The one world gov’t leader that appears to be the answer to the world’s problems] and His MARK [The Mark of The Beast].

The bible also says THAT the Antichrist will have the ability to bring down fire from heaven in the site of men [think: a “spiritual counterfeit” of the prophet Elijah] AND perform FALSE MIRACLES! Now, the bible doesn’t really specify WHAT those false miracles ARE (other than bringing down fire from heaven in the site of men) but THE bringing down fire from heaven in the site of men seems to be the main one! 

And I can see right now HOW he’s going to be effective in deceiving SO many people BY performing these false miracles, since many “skeptics” out there say things like: “I’ll have to see it in order to believe it” or “why doesn’t Jesus heal amputees?” Therefore, I can actually spiritually picture him DOING such things such as healing amputees, etc. So then, when some of the amputees themselves and other hard-core skeptics out there SEE the amputees being healed by the Antichrist, it will perfectly explain why those unfortunate folks will then falsely think the Antichrist is “God” or A “god”.

The bible says that ALL people who don’t have their names written in the Book of Life WILL be deceived by the Antichrist and his Mark, NO EXCEPTIONS! Although some people (after watching some type of Left Behind movies) might be wondering if there will be those type of “undecided” people who aren’t exactly Jesus followers but of whom “hesitate” to get The Mark…..

Well here, in that scenario, their names were actually written in the Book of Life shortly BEFORE The Mark hit the entire world and Jesus had planned to save them RIGHT AFTER The Mark hit the world, which is why they “hesitated” in getting The Mark. Thus, their name had ALREADY been pre-recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life BEFORE The Mark, so that WHEN The Mark hit, they later ended up being saved in the name of Jesus IMMEDIATELY AFTER The Mark was announced to the world. Make sense? There ARE no “middle of the roaders”, folks!  

We’re ALREADY seeing the rise of “weird global currencies” such as Bitcoin and what not. Therefore, we are now EVER MORE CLOSER to Mark of the Beast system than we’ve EVER been before! And not only THAT, but we also already have the REAL-LIFE VERSION OF CASSANDRA from the movie I-Robot ALREADY hitting the world stage at the 2018 GLOBAL GOVERNANCE SUMMIT! Sophia the robot already SPOKE at the 2018 FUTURE (GLOBAL) INVESTMENT INITIATIVE! And NOW…..something called Heba (sp.?) is now the SPEAKING face of the GLOBAL GOVERNANCE SUMMIT/INITIATIVE!

[[By the way, I should also mention that Heba (sp.?) is Arabic for “gift of God” while Sophia is Greek for “wisdom”. So NOW you can see where all of this coming from, folks! It would appear that Saudi Arabia is apparently gonna have a HUGE part in the Image of the Beast and Mark of the Beast system, someday. Wow! Who would’ve thought? What I would NOW like to know is how Saudi Arabia and Israel are tied together in the End Times – but more about that later……..]] 

Okay, so what does that tell us, folks? That tells us that global governance is already WELL on it way, as is the FINANCING for it! And the FINANCING for it has to do with investing in ARTIFICIAL TECHNOLOGY (A.I.). Why? Because the “tech” for A.I. is on a CENTRAL database – i.e. block chain technology – that is DECENTRALIZED! Yet, control OF that decentralized database WILL be held by The Antichrist! And the REASON it’s decentralized is because the Antichrist doesn’t want any one country’s gov’t or its people to over-take him/over-take the technology!

Remember the Tower of Babel in the Old Testament? Where Nimrod, the great grandson of Noah, had his people built a tower to try to reach all the way into heaven? And how he and all the people spoke ONE language? And also how God came to CONFUSE the languages so that the Tower would QUIT being built?

Well, TODAY, the world DOES speak ONE language again – DIGITALLY! And the “Great Tower” that the world is now trying to build is ARTIFICIAL TECHNOLOGY and DNA-EDITING *ITSELF!* As the “technology” becomes more and more advanced, the “Great Tower” (metaphorically speaking) is becoming “higher and higher and higher”.

However, the only difference is, THIS TIME, the Lord God of Heaven is NOT going to intervene….. atleast not for awhile, anyways! THIS time, He’s going to watch humanity slowly cave in on ITSELF, as the “technology” progresses!

I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention that Mark of the Beast, The Antichrist, Artificial Technology and DNA-Editing are ALL spiritually intertwined! The Antichrist (indwelt with the power of Satan) will likely be made fully or partially WITH Artificial Technology and/or DNA-Editing. Just like The Mark of the Beast WILL permanently CHANGE one’s DNA *FOREVER!*

My guess is that the Antichrist will mostly HIMSELF be composed of ROGUE/SYNTHETIC DNA and thus, ANY PERSON who takes The Mark WILL ALSO be reconformed to that exact “mix” of rogue/synthetic DNA that the Antichrist has! Why? So they and the Antichrist can be “ONE”. 

In fact, there’s now this demonic movement going around called “One”. Not only in music, but in print and popular culture as well. I’ve always wondered what this “One” movement was all about. But now I think I know. It’s about ONENESS; becoming ONE with Satan/The Antichrist/A.I./DNA-Editing/THE MARK OF THE BEAST. It’s about ALL humans having the SAME EXACT ROGUE/SYNTHETIC DNA that the Antichrist has, in other words, becoming ONE with Satan/The Antichrist! 

It all makes sense, now. If one does NOT take the Mark of the Beast, one CANNOT be “One” with the Antichrist and with Antichrist “technology”. Therefore, those who do NOT have “The Mark” will GENETICALLY stand out like a SORE THUMB! Why? Because they will be the only people ON THE EARTH that still have God-created, God-given, NATURAL HUMAN DNA that DIFFERS FROM ANY OTHER HUMAN (except twins maybe but that’s a different story!)

All the other humans on the Earth that have taken The Mark (at THAT point in time) will all have the SAME EXACT FAKE DNA that will very likely NOT differ from any other human! Does that make sense, people?

Remember Satan’s inversions…..God’s NATURAL DNA makes things DIVERSE. So what Satan wants to do – genetically speaking – is do the EXACT OPPOSITE of that – which is to very likely make ALL “Mark of the Beast people” have the EXACT SAME FAKE DNA!

Because please remember that Satan HATES the NATURAL image of God and that humankind (natural born females and males) were all made in the “image of God!” By NATURAL DIVERSE DNA were we all made! Therefore, in order to invert that, Satan has to do the EXACT OPPOSITE – by making everyone have the SAME EXACT (ROGUE) DNA! 

So the fact that they’re now touting DNA-Editing as the new breakthrough “medical miracle” shouldn’t surprise anyone! Satan and his cohorts (both demonic and human) are trying to create a “new demonic race” of humans! (Yes! It’s true!) Because once you install “synthetic DNA” into your human body, you are no longer truly 100% human! And that’s EXACTLY what Satan wants……..to WIPE OUT all NATURAL HUMAN DNA! (Scary, isn’t it, folks?) And most people are none the wiser! They have NO IDEA of the total depths that Satan will go to, in order to deceive them! 

2 Corinthians 2:11 states “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices”.

Here’s a Youtube video I found that talks about A.I. and Image of the Beast in a little more detail:

In my humble, spiritual opinion, Revelation 13:15 in the New Testament [book of Revelation, Chapter 13, verse 15] is MOST DEFINITELY talking about Artificial Technology. Why? Because A) It has the ability to “speak” and “move”, B) It causes ALL those who refuse to bow down and worship it to be KILLED (“killer drone technology”, anyone?) and C) it’s made in the Image of the Beast.

We know from the bible that Satan is a “spirit being”. Therefore, the Antichrist must ALSO be a “spirit being”, as well, yet, also human-“like”. Therefore, the IMAGE of the Antichrist must be CLOSELY related to the Antichrist. Therefore, if the Antichrist HIMSELF is made from A.I. Tech, then doesn’t it stand to reason that his IMAGE will *also* be made from A.I. Tech, as WELL? Think about it, folks!

And guys, I know this is a terrible thing to admit (please forgive me) but sometimes even “I” wonder if I MYSELF am ready for “Mark of the Beast” society, as it’s literally gonna happen OVERNIGHT! For if it was done over the process of a week or more, many Christian would have more time to prepare, right folks? But yet, if it happened OVERNIGHT, Christians would NOT have time to prepare. The SHOCK of its suddenness would throw MANY of them off-guard, am I right?

Folks, it could quite literally happen TOMORROW, 2 days from now, NEXT WEEK! We simply DON’T KNOW on WHAT DAY the official Mark of the Beast will come about! Nor do we know on what exact day that THE Antichrist will be FULLY REVEALED to THE WORLD!

Many think that the Antichrist will be 33 years of age, just like Jesus was, when he died. But folks, what if that’s not right? What if he’s actually a “newborn” aged in A.I. Tech (which would probably be the equivalent of 66 human years or so?) Folks, we just don’t know yet WHO it’s going to be! The answer may shock us ALL! That’s why we MUST be prepared in the name of Jesus, NO MATTER WHAT!

Also as well: If the Lord God provided MANNA for the Israelite people when they HAD no food out in the desert AS they were very first moseying along OUT of the path of Egypt, then what makes you think that Jesus won’t somehow supernaturally provide for his people (i.e. “born-again Christians”) during the End Times? OR He could possibly make it to where born-again Christians will no longer NEED food during the End Times but spiritual food, ONLY! He has any NUMBER of infinite ways to PROVIDE for his people during the End Times! MARK MY WORDS!

Also as well: If you need some personal spiritual encouragement in withstanding the MARK OF THE BEAST and/or the IMAGE OF THE BEAST, then let the following bible passages in Old Testament, Book of Daniel, Chapter 3, be your inspiration and your guide:

Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then an herald cried aloud, ‘To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:

And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace’.

Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

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

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

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will NOT serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up’.

Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one SEVEN TIMES MORE than it was wont to be heated.

And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and AbednegoAnd these three [Hebrew] men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?They answered and said unto the king, ‘True, O king’.

He answered and said, ‘Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God’.

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, ‘Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither’. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, UPON WHOSE BODIES THE FIRE HAD NO POWER, NOR WAS AN HAIR ON THEIR HEAD SINGED, NEITHER WERE THEIR COATS CHANGED, NOR THE SMELL OF FIRE HAD PASSED ON THEM.

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

Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are WE What We Preach?

Many people accuse us Christians (or pastors/evangelists, specifically) of either ONE or two things:

A). Watering DOWN the gospel

B). Being overbearing with the gospel

And neither of these two scenarios are very good. Because in BOTH cases, the Lord’s people (after reading/listening to one of a pastor’s “watered-down” or “overbearing” gospel sermons/messages) are DEPRIVED of the Lord’s TRUE message that they need to hear and thus, there’s NO change of heart and NO true repentance in their lives! 

But again, what’s worse? Feeling as though you’re “MORE THAN good enough” for the Lord, only to come find out on Judgement Day that you’re NOT? Or to feel as though you’re “NOT good ENOUGH” for the Lord, and thus, give up TRYING and then ALSO end up on the bad side of Jesus on Judgement Day, cause you just gave up trying a LONG time ago?

Well, in either case, the BEST approach to preaching is somewhere in the middle. Firm, yet gentle. Firm enough where the “congregation” or “assembly” gets the message, yet, gentle enough where they confidently feel as though they CAN overcome any “sin” or “shortcomings” in their lives in the name of Jesus and that they CAN fully repent of all their sins in the name of Jesus! 

Also as well: There’s a common misconception that ONLY a pastor is qualified to teach the Written Word of God. But that’s NOT the case!

2 Peter 1: 20-21 states: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretationFor the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost”

2 Corinthians 3:6 says: Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life”

2 Corinthians 6:4 proclaims: “But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses”

ANY Christian who’s moved by the Holy Ghost is more than qualified to “teach” the Written Word of God (the bible) whenever the Holy Spirit drives them to. However, that being said, many Christians feel ill-equipped to “teach” the bible and would much rather leave it up to the hands of a “pastor/evangelist”. However……AS their biblical knowledge INCREASES over time, the Holy Spirit will no doubt start using EVERY Christian to preach his Word, NOT JUST pastors & evangelists!

However, that being said, there’s SEVERAL things that we Christians (and/or pastors/evangelists) have to look out for! And that’s THIS: IF and WHEN you start preaching the Written Word of God to others, you best make sure that: A) What you’re preaching is actually biblical and not just based on thoughts/feelings/conjecture and also that B) You actually PRACTICE what you preach!

So, for example, if you preach about the importance of having “patience” in one’s life (as per biblical standards), do YOU constantly lose your OWN patience with people or in general? And if you preach about how others should be more than willing to help the needy, do you YOURSELF help the needy? What about drinking? Do YOU preach that others shouldn’t drink at all, then kick back and relax and drink several beers during the football game with your friends (if a man) or go out for a pitcher of half-priced margaritas with the ladies (if a woman)?

You might not know or realize this but your “thoughts” & “behavior” are ALWAYS on display if you’re a Christian — ESPECIALLY if you’re a pastor/evangelist! People are watching you…….both Christian AND non-Christian people, ALIKE! That’s WHY you want to make 100% sure that what you’re preaching is NOT ONLY 100% biblical, through and through and NOT watered-down in any way but ALSO is what you’re practicing at home behind closed doors as well. 

Because truth be told, people can usually pick up on insincerity – someone living a “double life”. In fact, of all the “disgraced mega pastors/evangelists” lately, some of their “flock” said they weren’t surprised at all of the allegations. Because deep, deep down inside, those very few KNEW, somehow. Their gut REFUSED to let them rest! Plus some of them, after finding out about the unprofessional conduct of their pastor/church leaders, have likely fallen away from the faith & stopped attending church. Why? Because they weren’t truly being fed the Word of God, just like they weren’t being truly lead by example!

But again, this does NOT just apply to pastors/evangelists, this applies to ALL of us as Christians!

Please remember what JESUS said in Matthew 5: 13-16:Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hidNeither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

Translation? What does being the “salt of the Earth” MEAN? It means that we are to PRESERVE God’s Written Word, The Bible/The Gospel the way that salt preserves meat! And what does it mean to be the “light of the world?” It means that in a global world where people are CONSTANTLY chasing after “darkness”/”secularism”/”popular culture”, that we OURSELVES are INSTEAD supposed to be chasing after RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

So let me put this in perspective a bit. Today’s global culture is all about Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Hollywood, Music, Movies, Etc. However, a person can use those things for GOOD or for EVIL. Sadly, most people use those things for EVIL or VANITY or BOTH! However, it’s possible for a CHRISTIAN to use those platforms for GOOD; for the sake of Christ’s Kingdom!

Though there is much “Jesus-mocking” all over the place, Christians can use that as an opportunity to preach the gospel in its unadulterated form! For example, someone mocks Christ on Twitter, a Christian can come along and preach the gospel to the mocker on Twitter and lovingly show them how they are wrong. Same thing with Youtube, etc.

[[However, that being said, there is now some Christian music that’s gone over to mainstream (I thought we were supposed to be “set apart”?) and not sure if Jesus is too pleased with people that try to put a “Christian spin” on modern “trends”. As for Hollywood, I know some Christians are now trying to “mix” with Hollywood and make Christian movies out there but for me, the jury’s still out on that one! I don’t know, to me, that’s kind’ve like trying to set up a Southern Baptist convention in the middle of the “gay San Francisco Castro district” or something]].

I will no doubt have to admit that even I myself (a preacher/teacher of God’s Written Word, the Bible) have sometimes fallen short of the mark, here. Upon closer examining of my own spiritual walk with Christ, I had noticed some minor “hypocrisy” that I hadn’t picked up on before (before others — both Christian and non-Christian alike) had pointed them out to me. And Jesus had no doubt utilized those people to get His point(s) across to me. And not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not but HERE are the 7 type(s) of hypocrisy that were pointed out to me:

1). There’s been some cases where I came across as “holier than thou” or “too judgmental”

2). There’s been cases where I came across as “too soft” or “not being firm enough in my biblical declarations of Jesus/the gospel”

3). There’s been occasional times in my life where I unintentionally (for short periods of time) held “grudges” against certain individuals in my life, in spite of preaching the importance of FORGIVENESS!

4). There’s been some cases where I preached against “gossip”, yet, found myself being “extremely persuaded” to participate in it at work, etc. Especially when a coworker would grab my arm and ask: “Don’t you think so and so is this way or that way? Don’t you think so?” and wouldn’t leave me alone until they got some sort of half-hearted response outta me. 

5). I watched (and liked) the TV Show called “Dark Matter”, even in spite of having had “spiritually denounced” the concepts of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence!)

6). Though I “denounce” Christmas as an “unbiblical holiday” brought about by “Pagan traditions”, I find myself unwittingly “caving in” to it every year just to “keep the peace” within my family (who DON’T yet fully realize or CARE that Christmas is “not biblical!”)

7). There were times where I found myself “arguing” with fellow Christians over what is biblical doctrine and what is not, not fully realizing that we ALL mature IN Christ at DIFFERENT RATES and at DIFFERENT TIMES! For NO two people are fully matured in Christ at the same exact time! 

8). I had previously stated in a previous post/sermon about how Jesus had FULLY spiritually delivered me from soda pop/soft drink addiction awhile back, only to most recently in the last 12 months or so get “partially re-addicted to them”.

[March 27, 2018 UPDATE: I am now proud to say that I have ONCE AGAIN knocked myself away from partial soda pop re-addiction to NO ADDICTION! PRAISE JESUS! And THIS time, I pray I stick WITH it!] 

However, ever since ALL these “revelations” about some of my preaching not fully matching up with my true-life “actions”, I’m now more determined than EVER to UNDO the 8 “Hypocrisies” that were found in me/this Yeshua777 ministry! So PLEASE PRAY FOR ME at this time that I will be able to CONTINUE to UNDO the 8 “Hyprocrisies” that were most recently found in me/this ministry! Because I want and need to be a STRONG leader of righteousness at this time! 

Also as well: NOW is the time to CRITICALLY examine our spiritual walk with Christ! We’re living in the Times of the End so believe me folks, this is NO TIME to be playing around with your eternal salvation! (Especially when there’s a very good chance the U.S. may soon go to war with North Korea/foreign nations! Cause WHO KNOWS what could happen in the U.S. or the world tomorrow!)

That’s why we MUST critically examine our spiritual walk with Christ and we MUST be spiritually prepared, NO MATTER WHAT!!!! So I ask you THIS: How is YOUR spiritual walk in Christ? IF you were to die today and suddenly find yourself in the Lord’s heavenly courtroom, would the Devil have ANY sort of “hypocrisy charges” he could bring against you? If so, what are they and what do YOU plan to do now to UNDO them, in the name of Jesus? Go about undoing them NOW in the name of Jesus, for tomorrow’s not guaranteed, folks! Time is of the essence!

The problem with many of today’s Christians is that they’re starting to get worn out, exhausted, and LAZY in their faith/spiritual walk with Jesus. As a matter of fact, Francis Cahn examines this very “hypocrital” attitude in the video down below:

 

Did the results surprise any of you at all? They shouldn’t! The last 2/3 of the video is what really got me, though. How AWFUL that “teacher of the gospel” must’ve felt when he realized that his total “hypocrisy” had cost him a SOUL! A soul that was likely not fully saved in the name of Jesus at the time of death! (Though I pray & hope that Jesus had a little mercy upon that soul as that soul was DESPERATELY searching for the answer of Jesus, just prior to death!) 

So I end with and ask EVERY Christian out there THIS one last question: Are YOU what YOU preach? If not, it’s not too late to turn things around, in the name of Jesus! For HE is the over-comer of ALL! Pretty encouraging, isn’t it? 🙂 For there is NO power in the UNIVERSE that’s greater than HIS heavenly, divine power!

Jesus is most certainly NOT gonna scratch his head in confusion over how to help each and every one of us overcome our sins/spiritual hypocrisies! And any Christian out there who claims they’ve never even ONCE had/experienced a spiritual hypocrisy? Come on, now! We ALL have from time to time! Romans 3:23 says that we are ALL sinners, and that we ALL fall short of the glory of God! But the good news is that Jesus was crucified for our sins SO THAT if we SEEK him and call out to him in prayer and REPENT of our sins (that means, to give up and stop doing them), he is just to forgive us of all our sins!

I hope this message has blessed you & encouraged you, in the name of the Lord! Have a Happy Passover & Feast of Unleavened Bread 2018! I love you all! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Careful Whom Ye Trust

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the person you’d LEAST expect to betray you, betrayed you? How is that? What were the warning signs? How could you not see ahead of time what all the warning signs were? Let us examine….

It all begins with flattery. We think when a person constantly flatters us, that that must automatically mean that they like us. (And there’s actually a difference between flattering and complementing). But what’s underneath the surface of “false flattery?” Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feetIn the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice” – [Proverbs 29: 5-6]

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hatefulThe words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good” – [Psalm 36: 1-3]

“A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin” – [Proverbs 26:28]

Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant” – [Psalm 78: 36-37]

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open grave, they flatter with their tongue” [Psalm 5:8-9]

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speakThe Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?” – [Psalm 12: 2-4]

“They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah” – [Psalm 62:4]

“The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords” – [Psalm 55:21]

So in other words, the person who “flatters you” all the time should immediately be made suspect, according to the bible! Why? Because the bible says that their heart is “double speak”. Meaning, they appear to be flattering you on the outside, but on the INSIDE, their heart is full of nothing but deceit!

I’ve had such an experience before, in my life. Someone had kept on flattering me, telling me how much better I was than another whom they disliked. (This should’ve been my FIRST red flag that something was “spiritually amiss”, there!) They kept making me think that they had my best interests in mind, etc. In fact, my own “pride” made me felt somewhat reassured to think that atleast ONE other person (“the flatterer”) had my best interests in mind.

And then, when I least expected it, they had started to flatter ANOTHER person in front of me all the time, while occasionally putting ME down (So goes the saying “Thou take prideth before a fall”). However, that being said, the spiritual equation at play here is that one person keeps getting pitted against another, notice the pattern there, folks? 

Another form of “false flattery” that I’ve learned in my spiritual walk to look out for is (gasp!) “false empathy”. I’ve had more than one case in my life where a spiritual enemy had swooped in, pretended to care about me and then betrayed me when I least expected it. How did they do it? False flattery, packed with FALSE EMPATHY: “Oh, you’ve been working too hard, you need to take some time off and RELAX“. 

Okay folks, now lets think about that last statement there in SPIRITUAL CONTEXT “Oh, you’ve been working too hard, you need to take some time off and RELAX“. And what do ya get? That’s pretty much Satan’s argument to Eve in the Garden of Eden, VERBATIM….The viewpoint that God’s being such a “jerk” by making her and Adam “work so hard at righteousness” but that her and Adam deserved the *best things* – i.e. some *relaxation* from having to work so hard at *being good & righteously productive*”, and that only HE (the Devil/unrighteousness itself) could give her/them “the relaxing REST and peace of mind she/they been looking for”. Notice the striking similarity there, folks?

[[Note: It’s really the “relax” part that gives it away. One of the devil’s best-kept lies is that we should just “kick back and relax” all the time in today’s world! But the brutal reality is that the Lord Jesus Christ and his angels never take a “break” from righteousness, so why should WE? Yet, that’s how the Devil tries to get us to effectively get us to “relax” our righteousness in today’s world! “You’ve been working too hard, lately. You need to focus on YOU for awhile!”]]

In fact, Matthew 6:21 puts it THIS way: “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”. Translation? That simply means that the “things” and “people” they are MOST interested in determines WHERE their “heart is” in life, WHAT their “heart” is currently “focusing on“. So if you’re a Christian and your “flatterer” doesn’t have much of a heart for Jesus, then it’s highly likely that that person also doesn’t have much of a heart for YOU!]] 

And also: when it comes to fellow Christians, just because a person “appears” to have the love of Christ in them does NOT mean that they do!

Remember what 1 John 4:1 says. “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”

Also…..Matthew 7: 15-20 states:Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolvesYe shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”

In other words, a person can “say” that they’re a “Christian” or that they have your best “spiritual” interests at heart, but if their actions aren’t lining up with their words? It may be time to reconsider the situation and reassess rather or not you want that person in your (spiritual) life or not.

We must remember that we’re living in the Last Days. Matthew 24: 12-14 gives a very clear picture of just what TYPE of “Last Days Society” that we’re now currently living in, in 2018 & beyond:And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”

Please remember that Satan (and his demons) don’t come in at full speed ahead. Rather, they’re more subtle. In Genesis 3:1, part A, it records: “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made”.

Translation? Satan didn’t come out at Eve with full spiritual guns blazing. The bible says he was more subtle. He waited until she was NEAR to the forbidden tree! For what good would it have done if he had tried to come at her when she was far, far away from the forbidden tree (as in an out of site, out of mind type of thing?) Think about it, folks!

That’s what “the false flatterer” did. They waited until they were alone with me before they started to “flatter me” over someone else. (And like I said, this should’ve been my FIRST clue that something was spiritually amiss in my workplace. For “dissensions”…..trying to pit one person against another…. is the very FIRST sign of demonic, spiritual warfare that’s going on!)

And now, not surprisingly, sometime later on, they had nothing but praises for YET ANOTHER…….while trying to make “me” feel small again…..Just goes to show ya. That’s how Satan rolls. He comes in subtly, attempts to gain your trust, and once he feels as though he’s gained your trust, BAM! HE STRIKES! That’s why we must NEVER, EVER (as a born-again Christian) trust a “constant flatterer!” 

But then again, it all goes back to “pride”. We’re human beings. It’s human nature to want to feel loved and accepted by others, right? But at what price, folks? At what price? For if our wanting to feel love and accepted by CERTAIN others causes us to spiritually FALL in our walk with Christ? It’s time to let that person go (as well as the “idea” of that person altogether, go!) Because our “worth” should ONLY be wrapped up in Christ and righteousness and NO OTHER! 

Romans 3:4 states: “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”

Most recently at my job, they also started what I call a “sticker campaign”. Whenever someone does a good job on something, they get a sticker. And then people “pride” themselves on the number of stickers they get and compare themselves to others by how many stickers they get, etc. And then, there’s these workplace “drawings” where a worker wins prizes, etc. See how Satan works, folks? He wants all the employees at my workplace to get all bent out of shape over “stickers” and “prizes”. It’s crazy, really. What are we all, in the 4th grade or something? “Here’s a sticker”. 

Well, I most recently decided to rebel by NOT wearing the “sticker patch”. And what happened? My boss tried to tell me I’d get my department in trouble if I didn’t wear the patch. So there was this “immense pressure” at work for ALL employees to wear their “sticker patch”. This also got me to thinking: “Should we be more concerned with the praises of Jesus/God or the praises of men?”

Once I started caring more about the praises of Jesus, INSTEAD of the praises of men, being forced to wear that “new sticker patch” by management no longer bothered me. Don’t get me wrong though, employee appreciation is a good thing. I just wish it was done in such a way where it didn’t feel like such a “competition” but that’s another post for a different day. 

I’ve also noticed as well that many times, my good, hard work there goes unnoticed by others (though I know THE LORD NOTICES….) and that all my mistakes (which actually aren’t very many) are blown way out of proportion and focused on ALL DAY LONG! Whereas, another coworker could make the same exact types of mistakes, and it’s laughed off like it’s nothing, etc. But again, I’m sure MANY people out there (both Christian AND non-Christian) have experienced similar things at the workplace.  

So what does that tell ya, folks? Satan’s attacking a good majority of humans at their jobs today; left, right and center and wants to make THEM feel small! Well, as true Christians, we should NEVER back down from a spiritual fight! So whatever Satan spews at us at our respective workplaces, I say BRING IT! For 1 John 4:4 proudly proclaims: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you

– [Matthew 5: 11-12]

So to draw this all to a close, what all have we learned today, folks? Satan is subtle. He comes in the most LEAST unexpected ways, oftentimes through “false empathy” and “false flattery”. People who flatter us all the time are NOT to be spiritually trusted, according to scripture! And furthermore, our self-worth must come from CHRIST HIMSELF and NOT from man/mankind! And lastly, REJOICE when you are persecuted in ANY type of way for your faith in Christ! For, as Matthew 5:11-12 states: “GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN” 😉 

I hope this has helped somebody today who’s gone through, will soon go through or IS going through the situation of “false flattery” and being betrayed by someone when you LEAST expected it! But trust in Jesus Christ, ALWAYS! No matter what, folks! For JESUS is the ANSWER and the SOLUTION to whatever problem you’re going through right now!

He is the author and creator of ALL life! The maker of the heavens and the universe! He is most certainly NOT gonna scratch his head in confusion over how to help you OVERCOME any and all situations! WITH JESUS CHRIST YOU CAN BE VICTORIOUS, IN ANY AND ALL SITUATIONS, NO MATTER WHAT! 😉 

I love each and every single one of you and hope you have a blessed evening, in the name of the Lord! And remember: Put Jesus FIRST and all other things shall follow! Put Jesus FIRST and the enemy will NEVER, EVER be able to conquer you! PRAISE JESUS! 😉 

 

RISE OF THE MACHINES/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PART ONE

In a previous post on the subject, entitled “Verbal Artificial Intelligence: Our Best Friend Or Our Worst Enemy?”, I attempted to highlight all the SPIRITUAL pitfalls that come with such “technology”, both short-term and semi-long-term. It can be read HERE: https://wordpress.com/posts/yeshua777.wordpress.com?s=artificial+intelligence

But one thing I FORGOT to mention in the above post is the LONG-TERM SPIRITUAL IMPLICATIONS of such “technology”. It’ll kind’ve be like the movie “I-Robot” (starring Will Smith). It’ll start out so “innocently”:

  1. The “family-friendly robot”
  2. The “companion robot”
  3. The “assistant robot”

And then, it’ll go from there. Both Elon Musk and Steven Hawkings see the LONG-TERM implications of such “technology” upon the human race. And both of them say it’s “not pretty”. Steven Hawkings recommends we should develop the technology to inhabit the cosmos (Mars?), while Elon Musk’s solution to the problem is to have us “merge” with machines; this is simply known as “Transcendence” or “Singularity”. (Note: The word “Synchronicity” also comes to mind, here).

There is now much talk among the “elite A.I. scientists” about “connecting the human brain to a computer/machines”. Mr. Musk calls this new concept/company “Neuralink”. In a certain episode of the TV sci-fi show called “Dark Matter”, viewers catch a brief visual representation of what that may look like; a person’s brain is hooked up to a computerized “network”, which then gives the brain “super-human computing capabilities”. The elite try to make it seem like oh, it’s just a sci-fi show, it’s not real, for crying outloud but pretty much all the “advanced technology” shown in the show ALREADY EXISTS or is VERY CLOSE TO EXISTING!

But if that isn’t enough for you, just think about what the NAMES of some of these movies and TV shows imply. “I-robot” seems to designate a time when “robots will have individual rights”. The TV Show called “Dark Matter” illustrates the Dark Matter that CERN is DESPERATELY trying to find. “Independence Day” seems to illustrate the time in history when most of the humans living on Earth will try to find “independence that’s APART from the gospel/righteousness”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? It’s ALL tied in together! It’s ALL part of the future Anti-Christ kingdom on Earth!

All we have to do is look through the pages of history to find out what happens when a people becomes a “minority”; they are soon overtaken by the MAJORITY! And as robots get to be more and more and become smarter and smarter and smarter, just WHAT will then happen to the “human minority?”

It’s no doubt that someday soon, ALL robots will soon become smarter than humans. It’s not a question of IF but rather of WHEN and it’s very likely gonna happen sooner than we think!

And WHEN they do, HOW will THEY decide who gets to live and who has to die/be eliminated? The robots will no doubt ONLY be interested in (over the long-term) preserving themselves, NOT the human race! In fact, it’s ALREADY been proven that certain robots have ALREADY been able to develop a language between THEMSELVES that humans weren’t able to crack/understand!

https://www.forbes.com/sites/tonybradley/2017/07/31/facebook-ai-creates-its-own-language-in-creepy-preview-of-our-potential-future/#2c5c2149292c

Does THAT scare you at all, folks? It should! Here’s all the long-term implications that’ll happen when A.I. robots overtake the human race:

  1. They will take over the majority of jobs (and this is global, folks, NOT JUST here in America!)
  2. They will be inside every new car, microwave, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer, refrigerator, heater, A/C, television, COMPUTER, LAPTOP, you name it, etc.!
  3. They will take over banks, airplanes, medical offices, construction, food service, trucking, etc.!
  4. They will eventually take over jails, courtrooms and the economy!
  5. They will become inhabited by DEMONS/DEMONIC SPIRITS!
  6. They will be an INTEGRAL part in Mark of the Beast system!
  7. They will ALL eventually “develop their own language” and “band together to terminate all humans”, even the ones that created them!
  8. WHEN they declare war on humans, they will either deem all humans as “unfit to live” or “in desperate need of an upgrade or DOWNGRADE” (and only THEY will decide what the “upgrade or downgrade” is, if any!)

I see nothing but a “bleak” future with A.I. advancing at the rate it is! And once again to refresh your memory:

A). Robots develop OWN language that humans can’t understand

https://www.forbes.com/sites/tonybradley/2017/07/31/facebook-ai-creates-its-own-language-in-creepy-preview-of-our-potential-future/#2c5c2149292c

B). Self-thinking robot ESCAPES LAB……….TWICE…..

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/intelligent-robot-remembers-learns-could-8248559

C). Robot kills worker in Germany

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/07/02/robot-grabs-man-kills-him-in-german-car-factory/

D). Self-driving Tesla car kills driver

http://www.businessinsider.com/self-driving-cars-already-deciding-who-to-kill-2016-12

E). “Sex Robots”

Sex robot creator is ready to make a baby with his machine

E, part B). “Sex Robots That Murder”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4873206/Hackers-order-sex-robots-kill-human-lovers.html

And folks, that’s just the 5-6 famous KNOWN cases that we know about………there’s probably PLENTY of incidents where A.I. has shown MOST DANGEROUS ATTRIBUTES that THEY (the A.I. elitists) so DESPERATELY want to cover up! (Why? Because it would destroy their whole entire robotics industry, that’s why!)

Now, to be certain, there’s TWO different kinds of robots: those made with organic matter, as well as those made with inorganic matter; those with artificial intelligence and those that were pre-programmed, yet have the “ability” to develop artificial intelligence (or at the very last, the appearance of it) over time.

But in the long run, it won’t really matter rather each robot has “organic matter” or not, as demonic spirits are able (and even willing) to possess ANYTHING (EVEN IF the something is NOT organic matter). Let me explain. Demonic spirits can inhabit ANYTHING (and I do mean, ANYTHING). All they NEED is an “open doorway”, some sort of “invitation”.

The scientists that create “artificial life”, sort’ve speak, are, in a sense, trying to “play God”. And therefore, by SO doing, they are technically giving (rather they fully realize it or not), demonic spirits the official SPIRITUAL “doorway” or “invitation” they need, in order to “inhabit” any and all of their (the scientists’) “scientific *projects*” concerning robotics.

And with “demons” (through the form of “robots”) ruling over humans, can you IMAGINE how that’s gonna turn out? And here is where things get very “dark”, INDEED! After demonic spirits come to inhabit all the robots (it’s not a question of IF but WHEN, if not already so), they will become an INTEGRAL part in the Mark of the Beast system.

How? Robotics/advanced technology will become SO ingrained into the worldwide economic system that it’ll soon be impossible for a human to buy or sell without it. In other words, it will be the EPITOME of the Mark of the Beast system. Robots/advanced technology will provide the type of “cyborg-ish environment” for the Mark of the Beast to take root. But the Mark of the Beast is NOT JUST about robotics/advanced technology. It’s also about WORSHIP, worship of THE BEAST/THE BEAST SYSTEM!

“So then WHOM or WHAT constitutes THE BEAST and/or THE BEAST SYSTEM?”, someone may be asking. Back in ancient biblical times, “The Beast system” constituted the “Mystery Religion/Ancient Babylon”. Why? Because the spiritual kingdom of Babylon (remember folks, it was just as much a “SPIRITUAL” kingdom of darkness, just as much as it was an EARTHLY kingdom) wanted NOTHING to do with HEBRAIC JUDAISM/JESUS/THE 10 COMMANDMENTS and wanted EVERYTHING to do with what was seen as morally wrong in the Lord’s site (abortion, fornication, adultery, sexual perversity, sacrificing children/newborns to Molech, bowing down to idols/graven images, etc.)

And today, in the year 2017, things are really no different. For the SAME EXACT THINGS that took place in ancient Babylon are now taking place here in America and around the world. For just like the ancient Jews that decided they’d rather turn their back on Jesus/the 10 commandments and EMBRACE BABYLONIAN PAGANISM, many of today’s global citizens (ESPECIALLY AMERICANS) are doing the exact same.

For just like the ancient Babylonians (as well as the Jews who decided to REBEL against God/Jesus), they are EMBRACING things that are an ABOMINATION onto the Lord God Almighty (abortion, divorce, adultery, fornication, sexual perversity, bowing down to idols/graven images, etc.)

Therefore, “Mystery Babylon” is just as much of a dark, spiritual city today as it was back in ancient biblical times. Things haven’t changed. [Thou to SPECIFY, there were TWO groups of Jews back in ancient biblical times…….those who chose to OBEY God’s commandments and those who chose to DISOBEY God’s commandments. The ones who chose to OBEY God’s commandments AND accepted Jesus as their Messiah are today known as the “Messianic Jews”. Those who choose to DISOBEY and/or REJECT Jesus as the Messiah- which, sadly, was the MAJORITY – became what’s known as today’s Pagans and/or “Orthodox Jews”]. 

The “Messianic Jews” are part of the SMALL REMNANT of God’s people that Jesus was talking about in Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. And this small remnant ALSO includes Judeo-Christians, those Christians who choose to obey the ENTIRE bible, not just half of it or a misguided interpretation OF it.

But going back to the jist of the message. Artificial intelligence is gonna be a HUGE part of the Beast system/The Antichrist Kingdom on the Earth. The Antichrist is not only gonna utilize artificial intelligence to CREATE his specific “Mark” but he will also use it to create a life-like “form” of the Beast! (And The Beast is none other than Satan himself!)

Revelation 13: 13-18 says: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six”

Revelation 13:14-15 REALLY seems to be talking about modern-day “artificially-intelligent robots” (or more specifically, A artificially intelligent robot). For, according to the bible, not only can the “image” SPEAK…….but it has the ability to TERMINATE ALL THAT REFUSE TO WORSHIP IT! And so essentially, it’ll be likened onto a Skynet-esque “Terminator”-type “thing” that’s indwelt by Satan himself! Only THIS time, it won’t be a movie folks, it’ll soon be REALITY! (Provides a whole new meaning to “unleashing the beast”, now, doesn’t it?)

But HERE’S one thing we need to realize, folks. “The Beast” is now being unleashed EVERYWHERE, from the latest music and movies to TV shows, to magazine and album covers, to the “latest technology”, you name it. But there is a DIFFERENCE between “Unleashed” and UNVEILED! Biblically speaking, “Unleashed” just means that Satan and his demons are free to wreck spiritual havoc upon mankind. But “Unveiled” means that Satan comes out from the shadows and MAKES HIS PRESENCE FULLY KNOWN! He will do this through his “image”, his “life-like image” that’ll be created by the Antichrist/the Antichrist’s team of “rogue scientists”.

In fact, I’ll even take this a step further. Could it even be possible that the Antichrist himself will be some sort of “cyborg” that will then create ANOTHER life-like “image of the beast”, with THAT “image” being both speaking and moving? Just a thought. Because in my spirit, I get the feeling that the Antichrist is not even human. There’s something about him that has to be anti-human since all NATURAL humans are created in the image of God. And we know that Satan likes to INVERT God’s creation at every chance and turn. Therefore, Satan would NOT want to “indwell” someone made in God’s own image or projecting God’s own image on the outside. But he’d instead most definitely want to “indwell” someone that was either NOT made in God’s image………say……a “test tube baby?” An “cyborgish Android”? OR that PERVERTED God’s image (say, a “transgender?”)

Why ALL Statues are IDOLS (Biblically-Speaking)

Folks, there’s most recently been a controversy in which extreme leftists have wanted to TEAR DOWN all CONFEDERATE statues based on RACE, ALONE! 

And while many Christians out there in the South are PROTESTING taking down the statues, there’s a MUCH BIGGER picture here at play folks and that’s THIS:

ALL “STATUES” ARE **IDOLS!** Yes, you heard me. **IDOLS**. How we know this? Let us go no further than the 2nd commandment in the bible, which states the following:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” – [Exodus 20: 4-5]

Okay, so let us define what a “graven image” is, biblically-speaking. It is simply an “image made by the hands of man”. And that “image” (in order to be classified as an “idol”, biblically speaking) must represent a thing or a person that is under the Earth, on the Earth or above the Earth.

Therefore, ALL STATUES comply with all the categories of an IDOL (biblically-speaking):

  1. It’s an “image” or “representation” made with mans’ hands
  2. It’s an “image” or “representation” of a person/thing that’s under/on/above the Earth
  3. Mankind often “marvels” over such “statues” and “takes picture of it” or with themselves BY it, which qualifies as a form of “worship”, according to the bible. Because remember: to “marvel” over something is to “worship it”, biblically-speaking

Therefore, I think ALL STATUES should come down. Not so much because of the race or history thing, but because of the IDOL THING! Think about how many Catholics, for instance, BOW DOWN to “statues” of “saints” (DEMONS) or The “Pope” or what have ya. Many people say that statues of Catholic saints are IDOLS, yet statues of historical figures are NOT.

But HOW is that, folks? How is a man-made STATUE of an historical figure ANY DIFFERENT than all the statues of Catholic saints? Don’t people (in a sense) bow down to and WORSHIP statues of historical figures by TAKING PICTURES OF IT or taking pictures of themselves RIGHT BY IT? Think about it, folks! 

I’m honestly surprised that more Christians out there haven’t picked up on this and started more of a “fuss” about this. When the VERY FIRST “statues” (i.e. IDOLS) were put up of historical figures, how IS it that most Christians out there weren’t PROTESTING THEM, THEN? Answer: Because they were SPIRITUALLY BLIND

Satan had it SO EASY on this, folks! One little statue HERE, one little statue THERE and many Christians were NONE THE WISER! How sad, folks! How PITIFUL! What a SPIRITUAL SHAME that more Christians have not been able to open up their eyes and SEE THIS SIMPLE FACT!

Many Christians today even want to CLING to those statues as “vestiges of human history”. And while it’s true that human history should never be forgotten (lest it be repeated, once again), I just don’t think that clinging to STATUE IDOLS is the way to go about it, SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING! 

Most of us wouldn’t want or have idols in our HOMES! So why should we want any STATUE IDOLS in the PUBLIC SQUARE? Think about it, folks! A 10 commandments monument is ONE thing! A STATUE (i.e. GRAVEN IMAGE IDOL) of an historical figure is another thing, altogether! 

And folks, it’s NOT JUST statues of historical figures that are IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES (the statue of liberty’s DEFINITELY AN IDOL – like it or not), but it can also be things like statues of cats, dogs, fish, ANYTHING. It doesn’t necessarily have to BE a statue of a “Buddha” or the like to BE an “idol”, BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING. Do you read me on this, folks?????

Anyways, it just breaks my heart and makes me so, so sad that many Christians are BLIND as to exactly WHAT an idol is (it’s a heck of alot more than just a Buddha or a wax museum figurine of somebody famous). When are people gonna open up their eyes and see this fact? 

I pray that if you’re a Christian/Messianic Jew who doesn’t yet see the BIBLICAL TRUTH about statues, that you soon WILL. I also pray that ALL statues will start to come down, soon. Again, not for the LIBERAL REASONS stated but for BIBLICAL REASONS! Cause then, and only then might almighty God have just a little more “patience” with this nation if we start tearing down statues (IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES) for all the RIGHT reasons (BIBLICAL REASONS) instead of all the WRONG reasons!

Folks, we (America) are a nation of IDOL WORSHIPERS (statues at every which corner/public square), MURDERERS (abortion, etc.), WHOREMONGERS (homosexuality/transgenderism/pre or extra marital sex), BLASPHEMERS and THIEVES. But even if we (as a nation) were to get rid of just ONE of those things (for all the RIGHT biblical reasons), the Lord would be partially pleased. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE? 

But yet, the bible says that won’t happen anytime soon. America will have to FALL TO ITS KNEES before many of its own citizens will repent. And EVEN THEN, many will have a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART towards Jesus and his commands in the bible!

Remember how all the ancient Greeks and Romans had STATUES at every corner and all over their “public squares?” Today’s times aren’t so different now, are they? True, people might not PHYSICALLY bow down and “worship” the statues of historical figures in the essence of: Oh President Lincoln, I worship thee GREATLY, but that’s because people do so IN THEIR HEARTS!

Like I said, they take PICTURES of the “statues” (graven images) or take pictures of THEMSELVES by the “statues”…..But again, exactly WHERE does that motivation truly come from? WHAT or WHOM gives them the very “thought” IN THE FIRST PLACE that they should take a picture OF it or with themselves BY it? Who or what, INDEED?

Can you IMAGINE Jesus back in the day telling any of his disciples (had the technology existed back then) to “snap” a pic of Roman statues or with themselves in front of one/by one? OFCOURSE NOT! Therefore, if a disciple HAD done that (had the technology existed back then), Jesus would’ve IMMEDIATELY denounced it as IDOLISM (which, it clearly IS!) 

And you don’t think Jesus Christ considers that a form of “worship”, folks? Trust me, he considers it WORSHIP…….And that applies EVEN TO STATUES OF HIMSELF…….He doesn’t even want us “worshiping” or “marveling” over statues of HIM…….Therefore, do you REALLY think he’d want any of us “worshiping” or “marveling” over a statue of historical figures or the like? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

[NOTE:  hope this post has both enlightened and informed you about THE TRUTH about all “STATUES”. May you NO LONGER be deceived by Satan and his demons! Amen.] 

 

 

 

 

 

“Ghosts” or DEMONS IN DISGUISE?

We as a society are seemingly OBSESSED with “ghosts” and the “paranormal”….

In fact, here’s a most recent 2017 news story illustrating this fact:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ghosts-haunt-palace-says-swedish-queen-155413476.html

From TV shows like “Supernatural” to “Ghost Adventures” to movies like “Ghostbusters”, “The 6th Sense”, “The Conjuring”, and to “psychic readings”, “tarot cards”, “ouija boards” and “seances”, people seem to be obsessed with the idea of ghosts/communicating with the dead (which the bible calls AN ABOMINATION, by the way!)

But just what DRIVES us, AS a society, (and maybe even as a WORLD) to be seemingly OBSESSED with such things? And biblically speaking, is it possible that “ghosts” are actually DEMONS IN DISGUISE?

Let us turn to the bible for the answer:

2 Corinthians 11:14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil

1 Samuel 28:13-15The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up out of the earth.” He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and did homage. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and God has departed from me and no longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do.”

Note: Saul started off GOOD, with a true, HUMBLED heart for the Lord! But…..over time, God’s “favor” began to go to Saul’s head a little bit and he became “distant” and “arrogantly self-assured”, thinking that he didn’t NEED God anymore! And in ALOT of ways, our current U.S. and global society is now currently PERSONIFIED in Saul’s “fall from grace”, where, as a VERY last result, he saught out a MEDIUM (something that the bible CLEARLY PROHIBITS) to try to consort with the SO-CALLED dead spirit of “Samuel”.

We — as a nation — USED to be likened onto a “King David”, who was a man after God’s own heart. But NOW — as a world and as a nation — we have become like a rapidly spiritually deteriorating KING SAUL — who have fallen from grace and who has become a victim of DECEIVING SPIRITS, WHO ARE MASQUERADING AS ANGELS OF LIGHT!

And just WHAT does the bible, if anything, actually SAY about “ghosts/spirits”, in general? Well, we know from the following passage that when a person “dies”, they DO NOT come back (save ofcourse for Jesus Christ Almighty, who ROSE FROM THE DEAD, and also a couple instances in the bible where Jesus actually RAISED somebody from the dead — ie Lazarus, etc.):

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” – Genesis 3:19

In fact, according to http://biblereasons.com/ghosts/, 22 bible passages that PROVE that “ghosts” ARE “demonic spirits” is the following:

[[[‘You can’t talk to the dead. The dead can’t come back from the dead. Once a person dies, they either go to Heaven or Hell. You don’t have an option to be a ghost and haunt someone’s house and I will show you from Scripture’.

1. Job 7:9-10 “As a cloud fades away and vanishes, so the one who goes down to Sheol will never rise again. He will never return to his house; his hometown will no longer remember him”

2. 2 Corinthians 5:8-9 says: “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him”

3. Hebrews 9:27 states: “And just as it is destined that men die only once, and after that comes judgment”

4. Matthew 25:46 proclaims: “These people will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life”

5. Ecclesiastes 12:7 says: “then man’s dust will go back to the earth, returning to what it was, and the spirit will return to the God who gave it”

We always hear about those stories that have to do with hauntings. People come back for revenge to claim their house, but what does Scripture say?

6. Psalm 146:4 states: “For his spirit goes out and he returns to his earth and in that day all his thoughts are destroyed”

7. Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 says: “For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.  Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun”

Another name for Satan is the deceiver.

He seeks to deceive as many people as he can and of course demons do the same thing. You may hear about people going to phychics and talking to dead family member, but once again those are just demons impersonating the deceased and deceiving people.

All the different ghostly activities, ghost stories, haunted mansions, etc. are all the work of demons. Watch out for people like ghost hunters who try to profit off of this.

8. 2 Corinthians 2:11 “I have done this so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes”

9. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions”

10. John 10:10 A “thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance”

11. Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil”

There are some people that might say didn’t Saul talk to Samuel’s ghost?

Notice that the figure did not come from Heaven. It came from out of the earth. Notice that the figure was not joyful and notice that Saul’s face was down. Scripture teaches that the dead can’t come back.

12. 1 Samuel 28:13-15 ‘The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up out of the earth.” He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and did homage. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and God has departed from me and no longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do”

There are evil spirits/fallen angels in this world.

13. Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him”

14. Matthew 10:1 “And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction”

You don’t have to be afraid because they can’t harm Christians as we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us. Believers are protected.

15. 1 John 4:4 “You are from God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”

16. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 “And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee

17. 1 John 5:18 “We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him”

But that does not mean we are free to indulge in demonic activity such as black magic. We are not to seek evil. It is a sin and it will harm you. 

18. James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”

19. Ephesians 4:27 “and do not give the devil an opportunity”

20. Leviticus 19:31 “Do not turn to mediums or consult spiritists, or you will be defiled by them; I am Yahweh your God”

21. Deuteronomy 18:10-11 “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer”

Jesus did not believe in ghosts.

22. Luke 24:37-39 “They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have”]]]

The truth is, Satan knows just about everything about us. And because HE knows almost every single about us, SO DO HIS DEMONS! Therefore, the demons KNOW all about our hobbies and family members and dead family members, etc. I’ve even seen a Lifetime movie back in the day where a young mother had a 3-year old? son that died. And a “demon” was appearing to the woman IN THE FORM OF the child’s “ghost”, telling her to do things like: “kill yourself mommy, so we can be together”. DEMONS *PRETENDING TO BE GHOSTS* ARE VERY, VERY EVIL, YOU SEE? I can’t think of the name of that movie. Maybe some of the readers of this blog have seen that movie and know which one I’m talking about….? 

But anyways, the next time you “think” you hear or see a “ghost”, BEWARE! Demons are EVERYWHERE these days! It’s not even POSSIBLE, biblically speaking, for a person’s “soul” after they die, to be trapped/caught between heaven and hell. The bible says so! And ONLY praying in the name of Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, not the fake Paganized one taught in watered=down churches today) can DELIVER a person from them! (Ofcourse, there is the HOLY SPIRIT/Spirit of God, as well as “righteous angels” but those are TOTALLYD DIFFERENT from the “ghosts” that people “think” they talk to!)

Demons are EVEN in today’s popular music, movies and TV shows! This isn’t a joke! Don’t believe me? Watch the following clip and then try to TELL me demons aren’t real (bet you can’t):

Mark of the Beast: Coming To A Town Near YOU, Part TWO

JULY 27, 2017 UPDATE: Anita Fuentes does a MOST EXCELLENT VIDEO on the subject, which is why I’m including it, HERE: 

 

The bible gives a few descriptors of THE MARK OF THE BEAST in Revelation 13:15-19 and Revelation 14:9-11

  • It’s a REQUIRED mark for ALL the Earth’s inhabitants, in order to be able to buy or sell
  • It’s NOT so much about buying or selling as it is about WORSHIP of the Beast
  • It must be received in a person’s right hand or in their forehead
  • WITHOUT the Mark, the name of the Beast, or the Number of his name, NO person will be able to buy or sell
  • ALL that refuse to take The Mark will be killed [Revelation 13:15]
  • Some people will be tortured and/or imprisoned DUE to their refusal to get the Mark of the Beast (though, like I said, at SOME point, ALL who refuse to take the Mark of the Beast WILL be killed at some point)
  • The number of the Beast is 666
  • ALL who receive the Mark of the Beast? “The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name”Revelation 14:9-11
  • There is NO FORGIVENESS by Jesus Christ FOR a person taking the Mark of The Beast. NONE. NOT FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!!!!!!!!

Here is a Youtube video that visually EXPLAINS the Mark of the Beast in GREATER DETAIL

Now…..I know MANY Christians and Messianic Jews out there are wondering just HOW they’re supposed to feed themselves and their families during the time of the “Mark of the Beast requirement”. But let me tell ya something: If Jesus Christ/Yeshua SUPERNATURALLY provided HEAVENLY MANNA for the Israelites roaming out in the desert at the direction of Moses/Moshe, why would he not ALSO supernaturally provide food and/or manna for his people during the END TIMES?

Think about it, folks! The Lord takes care of his people in their time of need! TRUST IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WITH ALL YOUR HEART, SOUL AND MIGHT AND HE WILL PROVIDE! THERE AIN’T NO REASON TO FEAR! He created the universe and the heavens, so don’t you think he knows what he’s doing up there, when it comes time for him to provide for his people in their time of need? He’s always done it BEFORE, in the bible, so why would he all of a sudden stop doing that, NOW? Think about it!

Therefore, there is NO NEED for ANY Christian or Messianic Jew to take the Mark of the Beast, in order to be able to buy or sell food, for the LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF will supernaturally provide food/manna to his people and/or make the bodies of his people to where they won’t even NEED any physical food/water but SPIRITUAL FOOD, only! Because all throughout the bible, God ALWAYS took care of his people in their time of need! ALWAYS! So why would he stop doing that, NOW, in what will soon come to be our critical time of need? Answer: HE WON’T!

But I got to make sure we get this, people. There is going to be AAAALLLLLLOOOOTTTTTT of pressure, when the times comes, for people to GET The Mark. If a person doesn’t get the Mark, they will be HATED and seen as a “bigot”. (I’m SERIOUS, folks!) Parents will likely be threatened to have their young children taken away from them if they don’t get The Mark.

People will lose their job and/or their house. They will no longer be able to go to the bank or grocery store, or put gas in their car. People will LOOK DOWN on them and call them “deluded” and “crazy”. They might even turn them in to local “global authorities”. And at the very worst, they will even be rounded up and killed, for their REFUSAL to take the Mark of the Beast (which, in retrospect, is their refusal to WORSHIP the Beast).

However, many of a person’s neighbors, coworkers, friends, even family members WILL get The Mark. They will be HONORED to get The Mark. They will be PROUD of The Mark and really, truly believe they are a part of something, something positive. In fact, many “rewards” will come with getting the Mark of the Beast, such as financial, home and job security, etc. And many people, because of that, will think a person is “crazy” not to want the “temporal rewards” that COME with getting The Mark.

The Beast (the demander of the Mark) will even be transformed as “an angel of light” and have just about everyone fooled! The bible says THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD WILL MARVEL AFTER THE BEAST. Why? Because he will appear in a glorified, non-hideous form. What? Did you people think he was gonna appear as a scaly-like horned devil with a pitchfork? HA! He will appear in a glorified-type body, say he’s God, speak like God, look like God, try to act like God, but will NOT be God! Instead, he will look, sound and talk like God but speak directly AGAINST God! How? He will go AGAINST the bible and/or create a “revised bible” for everyone on the Earth to follow.

Think of the TV show “Lucifer”, for example. Think of how “good-looking” and “charming” they try to make him be on the show. That is because the dark side is PREPPING & PRECONDITIONING PEOPLE to ACCEPT the Beast when The Beast finally DOES show up on the Earth (and I’m not even kidding, people! I’m SERIOUS!)

But in fact, Satan has been pre-conditioning mankind to worship him ALL ALONG since the creation of “religion”, itself (specifically, world religions). But….a person in a religion other than Messianic Judaism/Biblical Christianity STILL has time to think/ponder, repent and come to the FULL KNOWLEDGE of the truth, right? Whereas, a person who takes Satan’s Mark/The Mark of the Beast does NOT.

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? The Mark of the Beast is THE END GAME. For ONCE a person takes The Mark, their chance for Salvation in Christ is NO LONGER. And Satan’s been silently working behind the scenes to prep mankind for THE END GAME, ALL ALONG, ever since the VERY, VERY beginning of creation of mankind upon the Earth by God.

And just in case you need ONE last motivator to NOT get the Mark of the Beast, when it comes, here are some descriptors of what HELL AND/OR THE LAKE OF FIRE is like:

[And remember…..the fires of hell are NOT eternal….the fires of hell will be MERGED INTO the lake of fire near the end of the book of Revelation in the New Testament!]

There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out” [Luke 13:28]

“And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame” [Luke 16:24]

“And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh” [Isaiah 66:24]

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

[Okay, now for a small bit of GOOD NEWS, within this post…..144,000 people from the 12 tribes of Israel (spiritual Israel?) will be sealed with THE SEAL OF GOD ON THEIR FOREHEADS and will be supernaturally protected during the Great Tribulation (INCLUDING the time of The Mark of the Beast)…..Perhaps you’ll be one of the 144,000 redeemed in the name of Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ) during this time!]

As for all the OTHER Earth’s inhabitants? It is MUCH better to REFUSE to get the Mark, then later have ETERNAL LIFE with Jesus Christ FOR ETERNITY, than to take The Mark, and end up ETERNALLY CONDEMNED TO THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ALL ETERNITY!

Sadly, there’s even many PASTORS today who are claiming that Christians can take the Mark (in order to feed their families) and STILL be saved in the name of Jesus! SHAME ON THOSE PASTORS! THEY’RE LEADING MANY SOULS TO HELL/THE LAKE OF FIRE! (Including themselves, possibly). Many of them WON’T even preach about End Times or Bible Prophecy! Their churches are more like a “social” or “business” club. Sad. A VERY sad day in America, INDEED! ;(

JUST WHAT **ARE** THOSE PASTORS PREPARING THEIR FLOCKS FOR? THE IMMEDIATE WRATH OF GOD? (I PRAY THEY SOON REPENT AND COME TO THE THEIR SENSES CAUSE THE LORD NEEDS THEM IN THESE HERE LAST DAYS, NOW MORE THAN EVER!!!!!! THEY HAVE A PLATFORM TO REACH SO MANY…….AND YET….?) 😦  

Remember Esau in the Old Testament? He sold his ENTIRE BIRTHRIGHT for a “measly” BOWL OF SOUP! And that’s pretty much the SAME principle here, in the case of the Mark of the Beast. They’re basically selling their soul/their ETERNAL SPIRITUAL BIRTHRIGHT TO SALVATION for a “measly portion” (only in THIS CASE, the “measly portion” later sends a person to the ETERNAL LAKE OF FIRE!)

Must be SOME measly portion if a person is willing to rot and burn in the lake of fire FOR ETERNITY, huh? But then again, it’s more like a delicious looking piece of fruit. It looks SO ripe and luscious on the OUTSIDE. But on the INSIDE, it’s ROTTEN TO THE CORE…..only a person doesn’t realize it until it’s TOO LATE. And then guess what? In THIS theoretical example, the rotten core then BURNS THE PERSON ALIVE…..FOR ETERNITY! Some “fruit”, huh? 

And IN the lake of fire, IN the flames, they’re ALL going to curse the devil and yell something along the lines of, “YOU TRICKED ME! YOU LIED TO ME!” And ya know what? Amidst his OWN screams of pain in the flames, the devil’s gonna LAUGH at them! They’ll also be HYSTERICALLY SCREAMING out to Jesus Christ/Yeshua with something to the effect of: “JESUS! I WAS WRONG! SSSSAAVVEEEEE MMMEEEE!  I PROMISE I’LL BE DIFFERENT FROM NOW ON! PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER CHANCE, LORD! PPLLLEEEEAASSSSSEEEEE!” but it’ll be too late…….For THEM, there will be NO.WAY.OUT. FOREVER

And THE MOST PAINFUL REALIZATION that they’ll ever have in the flames of torment is that THEY COULD’VE PREVENTED IT, HAD THEY LISTENED TO THE LORD’S PROPHETS AND READ/BELIEVED IN THE BIBLE AND SAUGHT OUT JESUS AT A PREVIOUS TIME IN THEIR LIVES ON EARTH WHILE HE COULD STILL BE FOUND!

But BECAUSE they REFUSED to read/believe in the bible, REFUSED to listen to the Lord’s prophets, REFUSED to truly repent (give up) their sins, and REFUSED to love and obey Jesus Christ (whilst they still had the chance, while living on Earth), they will be stuck, TORMENTED IN THE FLAMES OF THE LAKE OF FIRE & BRIMSTONE…..F.O.R.E.V.E.R.
