Modern Society’s Fascination With MURDER

In a previous post, I listed 20 popular songs that talked about murder (and the 20 songs were ONLY the tip of the iceberg, I narrowed it down to 20 for time/space purposes): songs that either bragged about it, hinted at it or joked about it. Note: You can read that post at the following link: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/?s=20+popular+songs

However, just a few days ago, I heard about a fairly new TV show called “Getting Away with Murder”, with the word Murder made to look as if it was written in BLOOD! [Nevermind that Papa Roach already has a song entitled “Getting Away With Murder”!] And is it just ME or does anyone else out there in America or even in the world find this show and it’s premise TRULY SICKENING? ;(

A trailer for the show can be viewed at:

TV SHOW 2015

But then I started to wonder JUST HOW MANY TV shows portrayed/and/or joked about “murder” (rather it was explicitly stated in the plot lines or not). And the numbers were just STAGGERING!

The concept of “murder” is now starting to become SO “normal” and “widespread” in TV and in movies that it honestly scares me! For example, the movie trailers down below:

What is this world coming to? It’s only a matter of time before murder laws will be repealed by the courts. First, it will start off as “100% beyond a doubt NO murder charge for self-defense”. Then it’ll branch out from there. “No murder charge for killing the elderly at hospitals”, “no murder charge for killing children that parents were unable to care for”, “no murder charge for scorned wives or scorned husbands”, etc. etc.

In fact, there’ll be this whole new “campaign” someday to completely do away with our current justice system because, in some people’s eyes, it’s “just too old/outdated AND based on God’s law from the 10 commandments”……….in fact, there’ll be this FANATICAL national drive by Atheists/Humanists/Satanists for a type of “Hunger Games” type of society, if you will, where each individual person will get to decide for themselves what is right and what is wrong. And without a true justice system and true moral compass to guide people, by what measuring stick of morality will they judge themselves by?

If you think those days are still far off, think again! At the “Burning Man Festival” in Black Rock Desert, Nevada, they “draw a line” and when a person gets past that line, “there ARE no rules”. So quite frankly, it won’t be too long before “Burning Man’s *moral philosophy* — or lack of it, should I say — becomes the *mainstream philosophy* in today’s world! Because remember that people from all cultures and all walks of life go to this thing every year! So ofcourse, it’ll only be a matter of time before that *new-agey-no-morals* concept SPREADS to other countries and it becomes more like a *global UNCONSCIOUS/acceptance of darkness/Paganism/Satanism/New Age philosophy*!

We are heading into some very dark times ahead INDEED, folks, so get ready for that! Pretty soon, there won’t hardly be any morality left on this planet. Murder/homosexuality/sexuality/drugs/partying/money swindling is being GLORIFIED by the media NON-STOP. And even when people don’t agree with it, they just get SO USED to seeing it on the TV or in the movies/etc. that eventually, it doesn’t even seem that “abnormal” anymore. And that’s a VERY scary place to be in, INDEED!

When you hear on the news “so and so got shot today in front of a store” and you think to yourself “so what?” or “I don’t know the person, who cares?”, that’s a VERY bad sign that you are starting to lose your humanity and empathy towards others. But see? That’s what the MASS MEDIA (TV, movies, newspapers, magazines, online news) is DESIGNED to do. Because hey, the less humanity you have within you, the BETTER (for Satan and his demons, that is!)

But here’s what you CAN do the next time you hear about a shooting or what have ya. Think how YOU would feel if that were YOU or YOUR family! Then think about what that poor victim’s family is now going through! And whenever you see a murder on TV or in a movie, try thinking about the same thing: how would YOU feel if that were to happen to YOU or YOUR family? In other words, try to personalize it and MAKE it your business. Okay, if it’s real-life news, you might not’ve known that person or those people. But just think: it could’ve been YOU on that street corner that got shot. It could’ve been YOUR family member that got attacked in front of that store. And if it’s a TV show or movie, try imagining that the TV show or movie was about YOU and YOUR family, instead. How would YOU feel?

Several years ago, I read some sort of Christian blog post or news article that stated that one of these days, murder would become SO glamorized in our society that it wouldn’t even be seen as a crime anymore and that someday, people would kill pets or other people LIVE on TV for “shi*s and giggles” and that nobody would bat an eyelash. Please keep in mind that was around the year 2009 or so when I read that. And at the time, I thought to myself: “NO WAY! That could NEVER happen in today’s global society!”

But just how far ARE we from such a hellish reality? The number of movies and TV shows that *glamorize murder” already as it is, is ASTOUNDING! We are only in the very beginning stages, I’m afraid. But then again, that’s how the whole “model” works:

Stage 1 = Over-saturation

Stage 2 = Standardization

Stage 3 = Normalization

And I honestly can’t tell for the life of me if we’re in stage 1, stage 2, or a combination. And that’s pretty scary, INDEED! Then again, that’s how the “normalization” of homosexuality went about. In that exact pattern. And lets face it, prior to 2001, homosexuality was much frowned upon. Now, just 14 years later, speaking out AGAINST homosexuality is frowned upon. So how did public opinion change so quickly, just within the span of 14 years? The above 3 stages, that’s how.

Some people may remember back around the year 1997 when Ellen’s character came out as “gay”. While that helped start the tide of events for the LGBT Movement, it wasn’t really until the year 2002 or so that attitudes starting “softening” towards homosexuals. And now, in the year 2015, gay marriage is EVERYWHERE! I never would’ve thought in a MILLION years, as a child back in 1985, that homosexuality would be someday be taught in the schools, that kindergarteners in Germany would be taught sex ed, and that gay MARRIAGES would be taking place all across the country! (Heck, in 1985, I didn’t even know what a “homosexual” even WAS!)

But the biggest problem I’ve had with homosexuality is the PUBLIC PROMOTION of it. Why have to “promote” something if there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it? Where a person “sticks it” should be kept in the privacy of their own home, PERIOD! If a person wants to perpetually sin and end up in the lake of fire someday, that’s their choice and I can not change them! But there’s absolutely NO need for that person to yell on every street corner and in EVERY public venue: “I’m gay!” So so and so is gay/pro-sin and…..??????

I’m not trying to sound heartless there and please forgive me but why have to publicly PROMOTE something that is *so-called* “normal”? See, that’s the catch, there. Straight married people don’t HAVE to justify their actions with the mass media and public venue because they’re ALREADY justified in the eyes of God and man, whereas, active homosexuals are NOT justified by God in any way!  Just because two men and two women get “married” by mankind/human clergy does NOT mean that they’re considered married in the eyes of God! Sad but true.

While all these modern-day movies and TV shows glorify “murder”, homosexuality, and the promotion of it, in and of itself, glorifies SODOMY!

Okay, back to the topic at hand. The POINT I’m trying to make is that, if attitudes about homosexuality and gay marriage can change THAT quickly within a 10-14 year time span, then I wonder how much longer it’ll be before “murder” becomes a “right” and “normal” (both in the eyes of the mass media and in people’s minds and hearts).

Just look at the movie “Hunger Games”, in and of itself. Since WHEN did humans killing other humans become “entertainment”? Does anyone else find that concept TOTALLY SICKENING? People are just RAVING about how “good” the movie is, giving it 5-star ratings and what not but many people are FAILING to see the bigger picture, here and that’s THIS: the powers that be (those that adhere to the DARKNESS/Satan) are TRYING to PROGRAM and DESENSITIZE humans into murder and they’re doing it BY those types of movies and TV programs. If you think I’m paranoid or just making this up, go ahead and look on Youtube and see how many people are doing “parody” videos of some of these shows/movies. It’s totally sickening! 😦

Society is SO far fallen and SO far gone from God/Jesus Christ that I’m now starting to think it’s only a matter of DAYS or MONTHS before Jesus Christ returns to the Earth! But once Jesus Christ returns, that’s it, there’s NO 2nd chances! So you must decide for yourself: whom do you live for? Do you live for God/Jesus Christ/the light OR do you live for lust/sin/Satan/darkness/demons?

This isn’t a game, folks! This is your SOUL we’re talking about, here! Your ETERNITY! And WHERE you spend that eternity WILL depend on one thing and one thing, ONLY: do you live FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ? There are two ways and two ways, ONLY! One path leads to ETERNAL FLAMES OF TORMENT and one path leads to ETERNAL PARADISE. Which path will YOU follow? You can’t change your mind at the last minute, as Jesus won’t let you! You either live for him or against him and your decision will affect you for ALL ETERNITY! So choose wisely.

 

 


 

 

2011: A Year of Epic Proportions….

What do massive lay-offs, high unemployment, soaring food/fuel prices, increasing foreclosures, rising U.S. debt, depreciation of the U.S. dollar, false prophets, fallen morals, the rising murder/suicide rate, increasing rates of natural disasters and MASSIVE RIOTS/PROTESTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, etc. all have in common?

Answer: Bible prophecy.

If the following videos don’t s illustrate to you that we ARE in fact living in the End of Days, that can only mean one thing; that you’re not saved in the name of Jesus Christ and that you need to get saved in the name of Jesus Christ. He’s the ONLY way to salvation/forgiveness of sins, he’s the ONLY way to eternal paradise/heaven and he’s the ONLY one true God.

And these videos are ONLY the tip of the iceberg, folks! For there’s honestly not enough space here to list ALL of them…..

But if the following videos DO send shivers up the spine but you’re not officially saved in the name of Jesus Christ yet, congrats! The Holy Spirit of truth is already starting to work in you, getting you to see the “truth” and I pray that you will become saved in the name of Jesus Christ before it’s too late. There’s not much time left in the world before God’s judgment on an unbelieving mankind. Amen.

The Frailty of Life: Our Eternal Destiny

Life is short. One never really knows what day or hour one is going to die. Death is something that comes to us all. With the most recent deaths of not only Michael Jackson, age 50, but also of Billy Mays (the Oxi-clean guy) who’s ALSO age 50, it only serves to remind me about how short life is and how we have to be grateful for every moment of life that we have.

Looking back, as a Christian, I wish I would’ve prayed more for Michael Jackson and Billy Mays to believe and call upon the name of Jesus. Their respective fates are now sealed for eternity (be it eternal life in Paradise with Jesus Christ or eternal condemnation in the “fire that never quenches”) and there’s no turning back. Many people say that Jesus Christ won’t send people to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the lake of fire and/or that Jesus Christ isn’t the ONLY way to eternal life/salvation. But they are wrong. For it CLEARLY states in the bible in John 14:6 [gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 6] “I [Jesus Christ] am the way, the truth, and the light. No-one comes to the father [eternal life/salvation] except by me [Jesus Christ].”

So really, it’s that simple. All one has to do to have eternal life is to BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ with all their hearts, souls and minds and that he died on the cross over 1976+ years ago to save mankind from sin, that he rose from the dead 3 days later (bible passages and even NON-Christian historical accounts prove this), that he ascended back up to heaven just 40 days later to be on the right hand throne of God Almighty and to ask the Lord Jesus to forgive them of their sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, repent [stop doing] of their sins, and CONTINUE to follow the commands of Jesus Christ [the 10 commandments, the Sermon the Mount teachings in Matthew chapters 5 to 7, + ALL new Testament teachings) until their dying day and they’re SAVED and assured a permanent spot in eternal paradise. It’s that simple.

It’s SO easy and SO simple that people often overlook it and think there’s some type of hidden catch….that they have to go to church every Sunday or be a nun in a convent…… But alas, there’s no hidden catch. That’s just it. God reaches out to ANYBODY and EVERYBODY who will listen. It doesn’t matter WHAT a person has done in their life up to that point; they can STILL be saved in the name of Jesus Christ! [And please keep in mind, it’s NOT going to church every week that saves a person’s soul, it’s the Lord Jesus Christ HIMSELF that saves a person’s soul and the only soul that is truly saved in Jesus Christ’s name is a soul who FOLLOWS and OBEYS Jesus’s commandments in the bible and TRUSTS him, no matter what!]

All people who have ever lived on the Earth will someday face the Judgment Seat of God/Jesus Christ. And as each person stands before God/Jesus Christ and is forced to give a full account of their lives, what will they say? If the Lord Jesus Christ were to ask them “why should I let you live with me in eternal Paradise?”, how would they respond?

For those who die without giving their hearts & lives to Jesus, the Judgment Seat of God/Jesus Christ will be terrifying. But for those who put their faith, trust and love in Jesus Christ, the Judgment Seat of God/Jesus Christ will be glorious, as they shall receive eternal rewards in Paradise.

Some people may say that it’s “cruel” for such a “loving” God to send people to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the lake of fire for not believing in him. But truth be told, the Lord Jesus Christ gives people many, many, MANY chances, miracles and circumstances throughout one’s lifetime to come to a saving knowledge of him; even sending some people back to life after dying, in order to give certain people a 2nd chance to believe in him & serve him all the days of one’s life. [But who’s to say that you’ll be one of the “2nd chancers” after you die? You DON’T know that…..Jesus may just decide to send you on to hell, without giving you a 2nd chance on Earth first…..SO BEWARE! Don’t say I didn’t warn you].

So IF, after giving the sacrificial form of himself in human form [Jesus Christ] over 1976+ years ago as a “payment” for people’s sins, and IF after giving people many, many, MANY chances to believe in him, a person still chooses NOT to believe, then that is NOT Jesus Christ’s fault, (as Jesus Christ tried millions of times to get through to that particular person, right?) as Jesus Christ is a righteous judge and righteous God. He tried to save that person but that person REFUSED to listen or be saved.

Then again, God is not this hateful/wrathful God that people try to make him out to be. He’s a just and loving God. That’s WHY he gives so many chances, miracles and circumstances in people’s lives for them to come to a saving knowledge of him. Some people ask “well, if Jesus already payed the price for my sins, why should I have to worry about going to hell and/or eternal condemnation in the ‘lake of fire’?” Well, Jesus Christ IS a loving, forgiving God to be sure. But he’s also a holy, divine, RIGHTEOUS God. At times, he is also a God of WRATH. Just like every human being has an angry side and a not angry side, so it is with God! And BECAUSE he’s so righteous, so holy, so pure, so true, he can’t let ANY unrepentant sin (spiritual uncleanliness) into Paradise, someday.

However, when we put our faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ ALONE, we receive the FREE GIFTS of eternal life and salvation. All WE have to do is pick up the free gifts and say “thank-you God, for presenting the gift of Jesus Christ to me”. Because if we don’t ever pick up our free gifts and say “thank-you”, then how can we ever receive our free gifts? Our free gifts of Salvation and eternal life…….All just for believing in Jesus Christ as Lord & savior, repenting/giving up/stop doing our sins, getting baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, following the 10 commandments and ALL teachings of Jesus Christ in the New Testament (such as Sermon the Mount teachings in Matthew chapters 5-7, etc.), spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to as many who will listen and praying for forgiveness of our sins. It’s SO simple. Yet, SO overlooked in today’s world.

I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that God will bless each and every single one of you today & open up your eyes, heart, body and spirit to his eternal truth & show you that what I’m saying is true. Amen.

God of “Many Rules”?

To many Christians (and even non-Christians alike), God can seem like a God of “many rules”. And at times, those rules can feel overwhelming to live by, to say the least. It can even seem at times that God doesn’t want anyone to have fun in life.

But think of a parent who’s trying to properly raise their child. Should they just let their child run amok and do whatever the heck they want? Ofcourse not.

So it is with God.

God is like a “loving parent” and we are like his “children”. He has to give us rules to live by, in order to sustain us and guide us in the proper way of living & for spiritual growth. Otherwise, with no rules to live by, we wouldn’t be here long, as a human race.

Remember that all of our laws are pretty much based on God’s laws. So without God’s laws to inspire our own human laws, where would we be, law-wise? That’s right. We’d have no laws. And everybody would’ve killed each other off by now. But because we have laws based off God’s laws, we are able to have some sort of “order” in the world.

Imagine if you were God and created a human race. And lets say that you valued/loved your creation very, very much but the humans decided that they’d rather disobey you, attack you and talk smack on you instead, with a constant chorus of “You suck!”, “We hate you!”, “You’re no good!” and “Screw YOU!”, etc.

You’d probably feel pretty slighted and ticked off and fed up with those darned things after awhile, huh?

But what if you decided to put YOURSELF into the form of a human and took it upon yourself, to show them firsthand how “pained” you felt every time they disobeyed you and talked smack on you, by allowing them to torture and kill you (for the forgiveness of their sins), but then, having the power to be resurrected just 3 days later. 

Some of the humans would say “wow” and would start to behave immediately but others would STILL continue to behave badly. And sure, you as their loving, patient, kind creator would give them LOTS of chances to repent of their disobedience. But if they didn’t? You’d have no choice but to discard them, upon their deaths and to discard them for eternity…..

For what good are they to you if they give you no reverence, whatsoeever? They had their chance, they didn’t take it, so it’s not your fault, right? You tried. And you can’t take them back OUT of the fire of condemnation because all they’re going to do is curse you and hate you even more. Plus, that also wouldn’t be fair to the humans who were “righteous” humans the whole time and/or that “became” righteous humans.

Jesus Christ not only hates sin but he hates the “effects” of sin. Jesus Christ hates severe alcoholism, drug use, gambling, materialism, lust, greed, hate, pornography, etc. because of what it does to people (physically, psychologically, spiritually, emotionally, financially….) He’s not just saying “don’t do this because I don’t like it”…He’s saying “don’t do this, because it’s not good for you, in several different ways”. As our divine creator who made all things in the universe, God the Heavenly Father wants what’s best for us. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t be God.

And once more, Jesus Christ is not a God who wants to take fun out of life (contrary to popular belief in today’s secular world). He went with his parents to celebrate the Passover (a huge, 3-day long Jewish festival) with his cousin John when he was 12, he likely had a jovial time at the wedding in Canaan (before/after turning the water into wine), plus also likely joked around sometimes with his friends/apostles. 

Not to mention that Jesus Christ has given each and every one of us a talent, gift, hobby or “calling” in life. Not only to make our lives somewhat enjoyable but also for us to use OUR gifts/talents in life to glorify HIM! For example, a person who’s a great writer…..Jesus Christ gave them that gift for a purpose so that they’d use their writing to glorify HIM! Or perhaps a person is a good painter, photographer, etc. We are to use OUR gifts/talents for Jesus Christ’s glory!

Unfortunately, some people out there decide to take it upon themselves to give THEMSELVES the glory for their “talents” instead of giving Jesus Christ the glory and that’s where they come into some major spiritual trouble and are in MOST danger of a “spiritual fall”! Because remember Proverbs 16:18 which states: “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall”

So please. I beg of you. Use your gifts for Jesus Christ’s glory and see in return how God the heavenly Father in turn uses your “servitude” towards him to also bless YOU as well! 😉
