When God/Jesus Christ Seems Distant…….

We go through times and periods in our lives where we feel nothing but joyous, content and very, very close to the Lord, where our faith is rock-solid & unshakeable. But at other times in our lives, God/Jesus Christ can seem VERY distant.

And several questions start running through one’s mind: “is the Lord angry with me?”, “does the Lord hate me?”, “is the Lord unhappy with me?”, “am I being punished for something?”, etc.

We have a human tendency to think that Jesus Christ is distancing himself from US. But what’s REALLY going on is that WE are distancing ourselves from HIM.

It all starts out SO slowly & subtlety.  “I don’t feel like reading any of the bible today”, “I don’t feel like going to work today”, “I don’t feel like cleaning the house today”, “I don’t feel like taking the kids to the zoo today”, etc. And then, it all branches out from there.

And then, before we know it, we don’t feel like doing most of ANYTHING, we start to forget what’s even in the bible in the first place, our faith becomes LACKING, and we’re not even sure what we truly follow anymore. And that’s a very scary place to be in, INDEED.

This is usually the start of the “justification of sin” phase that we Christians can easily fall into.

We try telling ourselves things like: “oh, it’s okay I took a small fountain drink from work without paying for it, the customer before me said I could have THEIR drink since they weren’t going to get the fountain drink that came with their meal” or “it’s okay if I take a penny from the communal change bucket to help pay for something, that’s not stealing, it’s ONLY a penny”, etc. But the truth of the matter is, Jesus Christ is ALWAYS WATCHING US (every move we make, every word we say, even every thought we do so much as “think”). And he uses such experiences to “test us” and to “test our character”.

I’ve seen customers at work that will try to pay for a fountain cup full of ice water because they don’t realize the ice water is free. I’ve also had other customers who came up to actually PAY for a fountain drink refill. And that’s pretty amazing since our fountain drink station is pretty much out in the lobby area, UNMONITORED by any employees at my work. Customers could very easily steal fountain drinks without any employee at my work being none the wiser. (And many do, probably). But the fact that THOSE few customers who were honest enough to actually try to PAY for fountain cups of ice water or for fountain drink refills taught me a VERY valuable lesson about the bible and the importance of APPLYING the bible to our lives directly by HONESTY!

Because lets face it, stealing is stealing in God’s eyes, it doesn’t matter if it’s a pen from the bank, etc. (even though many steal pens mistakenly/subconsciously — though it STILL doesn’t make it okay) or something as small as 1 PENNY!

And trust me, if it was the day of your final hour on this Earth (and nobody knows for sure the very “precise” moment when they will die) and the ONLY thing standing between you, the true, biblical Christian and eternal condemnation was just ONE unrepentant “stolen penny” from the common change bucket (for example), you’d repent and immediately place the penny back in the common change bucket, wouldn’t you?

But in general, we humans are prideful, arrogant creatures. We (for the most part) do NOT like hearing that we are sinners. We LIKE hearing about or thinking about how great we are or how talented we are. But the truth is, we are NOTHING without God, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

God/Jesus Christ is the author of ALL LIFE, and is also the creator of ETERNAL LIFE & ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. Without HIM, we’d have no life/existence, PERIOD, nor would we have any chance of eternal life & Eternal Salvation.

Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned & fallen short of the glory of God”. Translation? We’re ALL sinners. Not one of us is perfect. Not one. We are ALL going to sin at some point in our lives and we are ALL going to make mistakes from time to time. It’s how we LEARN from those mistakes that count.

And our spiritual walk with Jesus Christ is NOT always gonna be a smooth one either, so we need to remember that and keep that in mind.

In fact, Jesus says in John 15: 18-23 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also”.

In other words, Jesus Christ told us in the bible that we (as true, biblical Christians) would have to go up against much clamour and opposition from “the world” (who’s pursuits are greed, money, materialism, lust, envy, pride, sloth, hatred, godlessness, etc.) He also informed us in the bible that he would be persecuted by the Romans AND the Jews who were loyal to Rome. And because HE was persecuted by the “secular” world of his day, that we true, biblical Christians would ALSO be persecuted by the secular world of OUR modern day.

And because of this, some Christians will give up at the first sign of spiritual struggle. They will say things like: “I knew it was pretty hard to try to gain entry into God’s Eternal Kingdom someday but I never realized it was gonna be THIS HARD, sheesh!” And then, for them, that’s it. They don’t feel like being a “Christian” anymore. And quite frankly, Satan is DELIGHTED when that happens, for these poor people are “easy pickins” for him.

But for those Christians out there who STRIVE their very hardest to try to gain entry in God’s Eternal Kingdom someday? That’s who Satan wants to overcome THE MOST. And he will stop at NOTHING to try to make that happen! He will try to throw just a little tiny bit of DOUBT into a Christian’s mind OR make one OVERCOME with feelings of shame, guilt & fear.

And once Satan manages to harvest some of those negative emotions into a Christian person’s mind, they become “easy prey” for him! He can THEN try to make them feel lazy or depressed or doubtful and from there, getting them to not read their bible every week, and neglecting their house/kids/marriage/self is a walk in the park for him!

And then, once Satan has someone neglecting their house/kids/work/marriage/self/LIFE, getting them to doubt their faith & slowly turn away from God is “no problem t’all”.

But there’s one thing that Satan is VERY, VERY good at and that’s THIS: getting people to get mad at God/Jesus Christ for the actual spiritual havoc, that he, Satan himself, is causing in their lives in the first place!

People will say things to themselves or to close friends like “why does God/Jesus Christ seem to have it out for me right, now?”, “why does God hate me?”, “what does God have against me? I didn’t do anything!”etc. And the sad part is, it’s actually SATAN who hates them, it’s SATAN who “has it out for them” and quite frankly, it’s SATAN who’s punishing them for having previously tried to live a Christ-centered life.

But AS SOON as people start blaming God/Jesus Christ for the spiritual havoc in their lives, Satan is having a ball, while reeling them in on his fishing line in one quick, swift motion! And before a person realized what’s hit them, they haven’t read the bible in 6 months to a year, they couldn’t tell you who Joshua or Caleb was, they haven’t fellowshipped with other believers for quite some time, they’ve quit preaching to others about Christ & Eternal Salvation, they don’t even remember the last time they prayed for forgiveness of their sins or the last time they had an actual date with their spouse or took the kids to the park or the zoo, etc.

And then, some Christians will oftentimes think: “well, I’m already this far gone from God, might as well stay here”. They come to a place of lukewarmness where they are TOTALLY forgetting the fact that Jesus Christ is the author of all life and that he has the power to change any negative thing in their lives for the better! They forget about the miracles of the Lions’ Den, of the parting of the Red Sea, of the turning the water into wine, of bringing back Lazarus from the dead, etc.

In their minds, Jesus Christ is not a God of miracles and of all life. In their minds, Jesus Christ becomes this sort’ve “burdensome taskmaster”. They tell themselves: “it’s too hard being Christian these days………besides, Jesus Christ’s not gonna send EVERYONE to eternal condemnation after they die, right? Only the MAJOR evil people like Hitler & Stalin, correct?” while totally forgetting the fact that EVEN Hitler & Stalin could’ve been saved had they TRULY repented of their deeds right before they died.

And yes, it’s true. The “path” to eternal life & eternal Salvation is a very narrow path, INDEED!

Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7: 13-14Enter ye in at the strait gate: for WIDE is the gate, and BROAD is the way, that leadeth to DESTRUCTION, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it“.

In other words, it’s a hard and narrow path to find AND be/stay on but with the HELP of Jesus Christ himself, is NOT an “impossible” path to find or be/stay on.

This guy says it best when he mentions we need to read the Holy Bible, King James Version, DAILY. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Not just SOME days of the week but ALL days of the week. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.


If you’re struggling right now in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ and are not sure where to turn, turn to a verse in the King James Bible, ANY verse, and start reading. Even if you don’t FEEL like it. And then sooner or later, you will have a desire to keep reading and that’s exactly how Jesus Christ feverishly works to restore us to HIM!

Then again, sometimes the important thing is just letting Yeshua/Jesus Christ know how you feel. TELL him you’re feeling doubt, TELL him that you feel like he’s distant from you, TELL him whatever it is you’re struggling with in life right now, faith-wise or otherwise and he’ll be glad to answer you. You can even PRAY to have more faith and more trust in him!

What do you think the Lord’s gonna say if you pray to him to have more faith? Do you think he’s gonna say NO? If you pray to have more faith, he will GIVE you more faith. He’ll give you situations in which your faith starts to build up bit by bit and little by little. We just got to learn to trust him.

And think of it THIS way: he created the universe and the heavens! So don’t you think he knows what he’s doing in YOUR life? Cause afterall, it’s not like he’s gonna be a type of creator God that creates the Earth and the heavens, and then scratch his head in confusion over how to deal with a mere human’s lifetime! Nothing in our lives will have him “stumped”! He is the author of all life! 

I pray that all souls that read this blog and/or this very post will either come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ or come BACK to the saving knowledge/restored spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ before it’s too late and before their souls become on the path to be lost for eternity. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Truth About Hollywood…..HELL AWAITS…..

Back in the days of the Middle Ages, people didn’t trust “actors” and a rented room at a lodge or inn was hard for an “actor” to come by. After all, they were considered “outcasts” in society and nobody really knew what their true motives were while the Church considered them “sinful”.

But around the time of the 1920’s or so, “acting” (as a profession) really took off and started becoming more “mainstream” in society. People started flocking to theaters to see Charlie Chaplain movies and the like. And that’s around the time that “movies/film” from/in Hollywood (whom some have now dubbed Hellywood) became a lucrative business. And around the same time, music (in and of itself) became a popular past-time as well. But behind the music and behind the film industry was a more darker agenda: to draw people into the dark side.

For example, look at any “star” or “celebrity” today. Even just the name “star” in and of itself. Truly sit there for a minute and think about what that means. Remember in the bible where it states that Lucifer, the fallen angel as having stated (before his fall from heaven) “I will ascend my throne above the stars of God, I will be like the Most High”. Also think about how famous people often change their names after they become famous. Many people think it’s coincidence.

But that’s simply not true. Because when an actor(s)/musician(s) “sign a deal”, the producers and managers more or less OWN THEM, and they’re actually “signing over” their VERY OWN SOULS! Think about that for awhile. They are NO LONGER their own person and their own property but are more or less the property of the producers/managers, hence why they need the name change. [Note: Even those famous people lucky enough to keep their own name are still OWNED by the producers/managers as soon as they sign the contract]. They are told how to dress, how to act, what to say, what roles to take, whom to date or not date, etc. Basically, it’s all “staged”. Not to mention that fame and fortune COME AT A PRICE. Look at some of the PRICES that the following celebs had to pay to “get in”:

Bob Dylan sold soul to devil

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZGoixVlrKE

Katy Perry sold soul to devil

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbmiOBN3U7Y

Kanye West sold soul to devil [watch from 2:00 mark]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUNxlwe8z1c

Snooki sold soul to the devil

Plus many, many, MANY more that are too countless to name!!!!!! ;(

Okay, so you have all these “stars” and celebrities [one meaning of “celebrity” was originally meant to mean “solemn rite or ceremony”] that are selling their souls to the devil and/or doing other crazy things (e.g. sleeping with producers, performing black magic rituals/etc.) in order to be rich and famous and to be WORSHIPED by millions of people around the world. You have teenage girls crying and screaming hysterically at the site of Justin Bieber, trying to get just one “touch” of him, their IDOL.

http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/music-news/justin-bieber-s-wax-figure-groped-into-retirement–removed-from-madame-tussauds-234020230.html

You have the tv show in and of itself called “AMERICAN IDOL”. You have COUNTLESS numbers of newspapers, magazines and even online news sites that are DEVOTED to “star culture” and “news about the stars”. You have the Roman Catholic and Lutheran Churches LITTERED with statues of Jesus and Mary, etc. Basically, everywhere you turn is all about IDOLS, IDOLS and more IDOLS. Our modern day society is inundated with them!

Like it or not, when we watch 98% of modern-day movies, read popular magazines or newspapers with so and so taking up the cover, listen to music, watch tv shows other than the news, ask for so and so to sign an autograph, go to “concerts”, etc., we are unwittingly participating (rather we consciously realize it or not) in what I’ve now dubbed the “Idolization Gateway to Hell”……Cause think about it. Even CHRISTIAN-themed TV shows 9 times out of 10 have some sort of “Catholic twist” to them (such as Joan of Arcadia, for instance) and ANYTHING that aligns itself with the Catholic church is PURELY DEMONIC (sad but true). 

And music in and of itself…….the bible indirectly refers to Lucifer as “musically inclined”. So why wouldn’t he use music to deceive the masses? Think about it. Even today’s CHRISTIAN MUSIC is appalling. There’s nothing but backbeat, breakbeat, syncopation, etc. In fact, I did a test most recently where I flipped through the popular radio stations and then put it on the “Christian” radio station. And guess what? I couldn’t tell the difference. They sounded the exact same.

And ditto with today’s “Christian” TV programming and even “Christian” movies, even! The true message of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been truly LOST, folks! Go to ANY popular “Christian” TV show or programming on TV or watch any “Christian” movie out there and you will see things that JUST AREN’T BIBLICAL. For example, I recently saw a Messianic Christian show on TV where the Rabbi said at the end “if this ministry has blessed you, send money”. I don’t see that ANYWHERE written in the bible, folks!

But see? That’s how Satan rolls. He searches out our personal “weaknesses”, then he CAPITALIZES on them! If he can’t get you addicted to Movies or TV or popular “celeb culture”, he’ll instead try to get you addicted to Music (and/or applications such as Spotify or Youtube, for instance). And if he can’t get you addicted to music, he’ll instead try to get you addicted to food, sex, drugs, alcohol, videogames, or some other like thing. And if he can’t get you addicted to THOSE things, he’ll try to make you HATE someone who’s close to you or that you work with.

And if THAT doesn’t succeed, he’ll try to get you to feel depressed or doubt your faith. And if THAT doesn’t succeed, he’ll just keep poking and prodding until he finds the something or someONE that makes you fall from grace. And once he has you there in that spot where he makes you fall from grace, he’ll CONTINUE to try to keep you there in that spot by slamming you with OTHER things, while you’re STILL trying to overcome the ORIGINAL thing he inundated you with, to begin with! Basically, he shows NO MERCY! 

However, when Jesus Christ died and shed HIS holy blood for for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins, God the Heavenly Father showed HIS mercy on US when he allowed Jesus’s sacrifice as payment for our sins! And THAT is the most greatest love and mercy, EVER! [3 days later, Jesus Christ was resurrected — google “the Shroud of Turin” — and then 40 days later, he ascended into heaven to be on the right hand throne of God the Heavenly Father].

Therefore, Jesus Christ will have mercy on ANYONE who prays for forgiveness of their sins and truly means it in their heart. But one can’t just PRAY for forgiveness of sins, one must also REPENT of them (that means, give them up for good). Because think about it, folks! 5 minutes of pleasure is NOT worth an eternity in the flames! 

Many people think that a “loving” God won’t send people to hell and/or the lake of fire. But have they ever stopped to consider that there were times in the bible when God got RIGHTEOUSLY ANGRY with his people? And even ETERNALLY CONDEMNED some of them? And have they not read about the part in the bible where Jesus Christ got ANGRY with his people for trying to turn the temple into a marketplace? Yes, God/Jesus Christ IS a loving God. But he is also a RIGHTEOUS, HOLY GOD! Which means that he can’t let unrepented sin go unpunished!

It might seem “cruel” or “unjust” to some folks out there that a “loving” God would send certain people to the flames for eternity, but guess what, folks? Those people simply CHOSE to go there. They were the folks whom God sounded warning after warning after warning but they just wouldn’t listen……

They just thought they were TOO GOOD for God, that they didn’t NEED God/forgiveness of their sins, that they were a good person by their OWN accord, and not be Jesus Christ’s accord. They were also the people who TURNED THEIR EYES FROM THE TRUTH by following FALSE RELIGIONS and FALSE DOCTRINES (such as Islam, Roman Catholicism, Atheism, New Ageism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.)

And yes, it “might” seem cruel that I’m saying that all non-repentant followers of other religions are heading on a path to eternal condemnation as it were, but the truth is, ALL other religions other than true, biblical Christianity ARE false religions simply based on the fact that true, biblical Christianity is the ONLY religion on Earth that has had 100% fulfilled bible prophecy, 100% of the time. NO OTHER RELIGION ON EARTH CAN MAKE THAT CLAIM! NONE. 

So please. I beg of you from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul. If you are addicted to something or someone that takes you AWAY from Jesus Christ and the 100% truth of the bible and/or if you follow another religion other than true, biblical Christianity (aka “Jewish roots Christianity”), I strongly urge you to start getting to know Jesus Christ TODAY! Not tomorrow or the day after that but TODAY!

Tomorrow may not stand. WWIII could break out tomorrow. A sinkhole might swallow you whole. You might die of a heart attack or get hit by a bus tomorrow. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!  We NEVER know when we’re going to die. It could be 5 minutes from now or 50 years from now. But once we die, that’s it. There are NO second chances unless Jesus decides (for whatever reason) to bring someone back. And how do YOU know rather or not YOU will be one of those people or not? Answer: You DON’T and that’s why you shouldn’t place your ENTIRE eternal salvation on it.

I pray that ALL souls who read this (including myself) will be saved from their unwitting worship of idols and also that you, the great Lord of the heavens, Jesus Christ Almighty, will renew or ignite for the very first time (those that are or would be new to the faith), the faith, passion, knowledge and devotion to you and your divine word/commandments in the bible. Please chip away at every soul as much as you have to until they have no pride left to stand on and are humbled before your heavenly site. And please help every soul out there overcome any sin that’s holding them back from you and help KEEP those souls on the path of righteousness (amidst much clamour and opposition in today’s “dark world”) and please bless and keep those souls for eternity. 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! 😉

The Struggles of Christian Vs. A Non-Believer, Part 2

Do you ever feel alone or restless in life? Like your life has no *specific* meaning or purpose? Like no-one really cares about you? Like something is missing in your life? Yet, you don’t quite know what the “something” is?

Or have you ever done something that you MAJORLY regret in your life and wish you could go back in time or start over again?

Maybe you were raised as a Christian but later turned away from the faith, as you got older. Maybe you know someone who is Christian and doesn’t seem to be living by Christian standards (going around saying things such as “God hates homosexuals”, etc) or maybe you’re just a person of “science” who doesn’t see or feel the NEED for God.

Maybe you’re addicted to alcohol, sex, attention/validation from others, money, food, fashion, TV/movies/popular culture or drugs. Maybe there was a most recent death in your family and you don’t know where to turn. Maybe you’re mad at God for the uncertain state of the economy or world chaos. Or maybe you blame God for everything going wrong in your life, in general.

Well, let me tell you something. Jesus Christ cares.

And for EACH person that calls out to Jesus’s heavenly name, he has a divine plan and purpose for each of our lives:

And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you” [Isaiah 46:4]

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” [Jeremiah 29:11]

Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life” [Isaiah 43:4]

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee” [Jeremiah 31:3]

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” [1 Peter 4:10]

As an all-knowing, all-loving God…….

God knew each and every single one of us before we were born. He created us and he made us. And he understands what we’re going through, no matter what we’re facing in life. God made himself human in the form of Jesus Christ, not only so we would believe in him but so he could emphasize with “being human” [even though as both God AND Man, he was *perfect* and never sinned].

Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) was mocked, flogged/whipped, ridiculed, pierced in the side, crowned with a crown of thorns, spit on, forced to carry his own cross and then crucified. He died an *excruciatingly painful* death, in order to save mankind from God’s Wrath/unforgiveness of sins. He took the payment for sin upon Himself in order to give US (humanity) a way to “become clean” in God’s eyes and receive forgiveness of our sins and *everlasting life*. This is known as “Salvation”.

Jesus died for you and for me, and for every person in the world that has ever lived from Jesus’s time, up to the present time.

So when we pray to Jesus for forgiveness of ours sins and acknowledge to him that we are a sinner, basically what we’re doing is “accepting” Jesus’s *free gift of salvation/forgiveness of sins* into our minds, hearts, bodies and spirits and saying “thank-you Lord Jesus, for dying for my sins, as I am nothing but a sinner in need of Salvation”.

So when I say that Jesus Christ understands what you’re going through, you can TRULY believe that he knows what you’re going through, since he went through all of that [the beyond excruciatingly painful –both physically and emotionally— torchure and death], just to be able to save you and me and all of mankind from their sins/God’s wrath.

“For God so loved that world that he gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life” [John 3:16]

“For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved” [John 3:17]

“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the in the name of the only begotten Son of God [Jesus Christ]” {John 3:18}

So no matter what you’re facing in life (death of someone close to you, thoughts of depression/suicide, alcohol/drug addiction, severe persecution or “broken faith” as a Christian, an uncertain economic future, etc), call out to Jesus TODAY! Put your faith, trust and love in him!

He WILL have a solution to any problem in life that you’re facing right now, if you call out to him in prayer. He knows, He understands and He CARES!

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” [Hebrews 13:5]

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” [Hebrews 13:6]

If you put your faith, trust and love in the Lord Jesus [accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Lord & Savior], pray for forgiveness of your sins, repent of your sins [that means, stop doing them], get baptized [FULL IMMERSION BAPTISM] in the name of Jesus Christ and CONTINUE following Jesus’s commands in the bible until the day you die, you will never have to face life alone or worry about the future ever, ever again! You will be able to rest with the peace and knowledge that you are “Saved” and that you’re going to spend eternity with God/Jesus Christ in eternal paradise, someday!!!!!

And if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ, then now is the time to *pray to believe*.

Say to Jesus: Lord, upon my uncertainty of your existence right now, please make yourself real to me. Please grant me the power to believe. Amen

And then read the Word of God in the New Testament, which commands us to pray for forgiveness of our sins, repent of our sins, accept Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior into our hearts and get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus says in Mark 16:16 “He who believes & is baptized is Saved but he who does not believe will be condemned”. Meaning, that the ONLY unforgiveable sin there is, is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of *Truth* and it is rewarded to/freely given to all those who believe in Jesus Christ, get baptized in his name, pray for forgiveness of their sins, REPENT (that means, give up) their sins and submit their very LIVES to him by living a life that is pleasing to God/Jesus Christ.

And sadly, Revelation 20:15 (book of Revelation, chapter 20, verse 15, at the very end of the New Testament) gives us a VERY CLEAR PICTURE of all those whom DON’T put their faith, trust, love & obedience into Jesus Christ:

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

So just imagine this for a moment……..Everything from the Earth, on the Earth has COMPLETELY passed away……..and you’re standing before the righteous Judgement Seat of JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! Man……you never believed in him BEFORE……but BOY, you sure do, NOW! He’s separating all the people that ever lived on the Earth into TWO groups……One LARGE group of people on his LEFT side………and a very SMALL group of people on his RIGHT side………

You immediately look over to your large “group” on the LEFT side of Jesus and laugh a bit of relief, thinking that YOUR side must be the “redeemed side” and that the “small” side on Jesus’s RIGHT side must be the “condemned side”. You wait in nervous anticipation……..only to hear Jesus say FIRST to the VERY small group on his RIGHT side, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34b]

And then YOU PANIC…….as you THEN come to FULLY realize………YOU ARE ON THE “CONDEMNED SIDE” OF THE LORD!

And then, just about as your soul’s heart is about to stop, he then turns to YOUR “large group” on the left side of him and says, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels! [Matthew 25:41b] 

And then, as you and all the others are being led to the flames, you SCREAM in agony at Jesus saying, JESUS! I WAS WRONG! I WAS WRONG! LET ME INTO YOUR KINGDOM! LET ME INTO YOUR KINGDOM! LET ME INTO YOUR KINGDOM, PLEASE! I BBEEGGG OFFFF YYYOOUUU! but by THEN, it’ll be too late……..

For WHILE you were still living on the Earth, you sealed your fate by DENYING JESUS! [And please know that denying Jesus doesn’t JUST have to be a form of VERBAL DENIAL……..it can also be a LIFESTYLE DENIAL, as well. For example, those who “claim” they love Jesus but yet, don’t follow his commands in the bible! They are likened onto “Jesus deniers!”] 

The struggles of a Christian Vs. a Non-Believer

Being a Christian in today’s world is NOT easy. In fact, it’s anything but. There is SO MUCH resistance going on out there against the true believers in Christ! Even from people that are close to us! And there’s something I don’t quite understand. What is so threatening about a just, LOVING God who wishes that NONE would perish but that ALL would have *everlasting life*?

“For God [the Heavenly Father] so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in Him [Jesus Christ] should not perish but have *everlasting life*” [life in eternity with God/Jesus Christ] John, chapter 3, verse 16 (John 3:16)

And trust me, if I & other true Christians out there know the bible to be the 100% true, holy-spirit-inspired Word of God and that ALL non-believers are condemned by God, (if they don’t come to Christ before they die), then isn’t it my job, and EVERY true Christian’s job, to preach to all the lost souls of the world so that in Jesus’s name, they may be saved? What kind of Christian would I or someone else be if they DIDN’T teach about salvation and Jesus to people? Think about it.

And when I quote bible passages that go along with what I’m saying, I don’t do it to be threatening or scary or intimidating in any way. I do it because I love ALL that I speak to and because I want them, through God’s good grace, to see the way, the truth and the light [Jesus Christ] so that their eyes may be opened and so that they will be “saved” and go into eternity WITH God/Jesus someday!

I mean, forgive me for saying this and all but who in their right mind, after reading or hearing about the descriptions of hell and/or eternal punishment in the “fire that never quenches”, would want to go there? It is NOT the *party place* that secular people make it out to be. It is a place of damnation and torment. Jesus describes it in Matthew 8:12 “But the children of the kingdom [of darkness] shall be cast into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and knashing of teeth”. In order words, excruciatingly painful!

Just like, who, after reading or hearing about the descriptions of *New Jerusalem* (God’s eternal Kingdom talked about in Revelation, chapters 21-22 in the New Testament), would NOT want to go there? It is a place where there is no pain, only happiness. No tears are shed. All who are hungry for food or thirst for water will never have to hunger or thirst ever again. There is nothing but dancing and rejoicing and no signs of aging. In other words, enlightenment/spiritual nirvana! However, even still, the Lord Jesus Christ will be worshiped in the Millennial Kingdom and beyond and inhabitants of the holy city will go up on the mountain during the feast of Tabernacles and whoever doesn’t go up to the mountain during the feast of Tabernacles will have no rain on their crops, etc. (but more about that later)….

Guys, look…..the truth of the matter is, true Christians live a very hard life. They are mocked and ridiculed (even by some fellow “wayward/worldly Christians”, called crazy by some and even sometimes betrayed by people close to them, due to their faith!

But they are SO thrilled with Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of their sins [salvation] that they want to turn around and share that total joy in knowing Jesus Christ with others. What is so threatening about THAT? True Christians feel as if it’s their mission in life to save lost souls, so that’s what they do and that’s what God calls them to do.

If you don’t want to hear the message about God, don’t take it up with ME or whatever person is trying to teach you God’s Word, take it up with God himself! Not I or anyone else am FORCING anyone to read God’s message, afterall. People read things or not, of their own free will. Just like people come to God or not of their own free will.

So PLEASE, people….I’m not forcing you to read or do ANYTHING. I am just merely telling you of what is spoken about in God’s Word in the Holy Bible and of my own experiences with God, so that you can make the decision on your own to come to God or not. What you DO in terms of coming to God or not is entirely up to YOU.

But please know (and I say this with love) that God condemns ALL non-believers that don’t accept Jesus Christ into their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits before they die….

But to fully accept Jesus Christ into one’s mind, heart, body and spirit, one must pray for forgiveness of sins, REPENT/stop doing sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and live a life that is pleasing to him UNTIL one dies.

And remember, one of the BEST kept secrets in today’s “secular world” is that Jesus Christ/God exists, and that the Devil/Satan exists. Satan would love nothing more than to have people believe he, Satan, doesn’t exist (and *especially* WANTS people believing that Jesus doesn’t exist). That way, he (Satan) is more easily able to infiltrate one’s mind, heart, body and spirit, and bend a person’s will to do his silent bidding. In fact, he’s ALWAYS behind the scenes of some of the most gruesome crimes in today’s world, as well as friends betraying friends, etc. Oftentimes after people are arrested for major crimes in today’s world, they will say something like “the voices told me to do it”, “Satan told me to do it”, etc. and these people aren’t lying! Satanic/demonic possession is a real thing in today’s world and more attention needs to be brought to it. (But that’s for another post).

Also, Satan is THE OPPRESSOR. He WANTS you to hate the people close to you. He WANTS you to feel depressed, downtrodden, hopeless, helpless, even suicidal. He WANTS you to struggle with additions (be it alcohol, food, drugs, music, cars, guns, etc.) He WANTS you to think that both he and Jesus aren’t real. He WANTS you to doubt your faith and not live a true Christian life. He WANTS you to be overcome with a love for entertainment (music, movies, videogames, television, etc.). He WANTS you to write off the bible as “myth”.

He WANTS you to turn away from Jesus Christ at all costs. He WANTS you to do bad things that he knows aren’t pleasing to God so he can try to suck your soul away someday. He WANTS you to be a backslidden Christian. He WANTS you to lose your faith AND hope in Jesus Christ so you will become part of the “Satanic fold”. He WANTS you to think that you can’t make a positive difference in this world. He WANTS you to not do the things that Jesus Christ wants you to do (“tell your friend you’re sorry”, “write this person a letter”, “go see how so and so is doing at your work”, etc.) Basically, he wants everything that Jesus Christ DOESN’T want for you or your life.

And Jesus Christ, on the other hand, is THE REDEEMER. HE wants you to love the people close to you (and around you). HE wants you to forgive those who have hurt you. HE wants you to feel joy and peace in your life. HE wants to give you hope and a future. HE wants to help you overcome your addictions, to heal on the inside and to be set free from all your addictions. HE wants you to know that both he and Satan are real. HE doesn’t want you to doubt your faith but will help you overcome your doubts if you cry out to him about it in prayer. HE wants you to live a true, Christian life that is pleasing to him.

HE does NOT want you to be overcome with a love for entertainment (music, movies, videogames, television money, etc.), the things in and of this world, etc. HE wants you to turn away from SATAN and Satan’s “entertainment/lust/greed” agenda at all costs. HE doesn’t want you to be a backslidden Christian but wants to help you overcome your sin(s). HE wants to help you make a positive difference in today’s world (even if you’ve only helped just ONE soul on the planet……in God’s eyes, you’ve helped him a TON just by helping that ONE soul). HE wants you to do things in your life for HIS glory. And basically, Jesus Christ wants everything for you and your life that Satan DOESN’T want (peace, joy, salvation, everlasting life).

Jesus said in Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be condemned”.

Jesus Christ Is The ONLY THING That Satisfies!

With the world being so “crazy” today, many people are searching for answers. They feel empty inside and are trying to search for the one thing or things or people that they think will make them feel “complete” or “happy” in life. Many famous music and movie stars turn to things such as money, publicity stunts, religions like Scientology or Kabbalah (a form of Jewish Mysticism) to try to fill that “empty hole” in their lives. Other people turn to alcohol/partying, sex or drugs. Yet others find themselves turning to food, entertainment (music, movies, books, television, videgogames, etc.) or “new age spirituality” for comfort.

But they are overlooking one simple thing. Jesus Christ is the ONLY thing that satisfies and makes one feel “complete”! (That is, when one fully gives themselves over to Jesus Christ and surrenders their life and heart to Him!)

I know it sounds clique but it’s true.

God is the one who created us, who knew us before we were born, who knows our future and of whom can even count the numbers of hairs on our head.

Therefore, he knows each and every single one of personally (personality traits and all) and knows what’s best for us. His divine love satisfies better than ANY amount of money, sex, drugs, food, partying, entertainment or “new age spirituality” EVER could!

So for those people out there in the world who have resisted Jesus Christ/God, turned their back on Him, or don’t believe in Him, give God a chance. Get to know Jesus Christ today. Jesus Christ loves EVERYONE, regardless of race, gender, culture & no matter WHAT they’ve done so far in life! (There is NO hidden catch! God’s love is FREE to all who accept it!) God loves you, each and every single one of you and He wants to get to know you!

However, Jesus Christ can not help a person that REFUSES to get help, REFUSES to believe in him, REFUSES to have faith & trust in him, REFUSES to repent/give up their sins. Jesus Christ (at Judgement Day) will judge ALL those who turned their backs on him while they were living or those that “profused” to believed in him but followed their OWN ways, instead of God’s ways.

However, if you cry out to Jesus Christ in prayer (& mean the prayer with all your soul, all your mind, and all your heart & all your strength & BELIEVE that he has the power to help you/save you for eternity), He WILL change your life for the better, if you ask Him to! He WILL cleanse you from all sin & “negative baggage” and allow his Holy Spirit to bring peace & joy over your spirit and in your life! Peace & joy that you’ve never known before!

So, you may think that you “gave God” a chance once and that you didn’t feel Him working in your life, but let me ask you this. Have you TRULY given God a chance? Did you TRULY surrender your heart and your life to Him and lay all your hopes/dreams/worries at his feet?

It doesn’t matter WHAT you’ve done in your life so far, God’s love is free & accessible to ALL who desire it. It doesn’t matter if you’ve killed 5 people or 50 people. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed a bank or dealt drugs. It doesn’t matter if you were once involved with or even currently involved in porn. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man who walked out on your wife/ex-wife and kids & hadn’t made child support payments in a long time or if you’re a mother who abandoned your kids and/or your husband. It doesn’t matter if you once stole a huge sum of items from the mall or the grocery store or if you used to mercilessly bully someone while you were in grade-school, middle school or high-school.

Jesus Christ LOVES you and he wants to give you a 2nd chance in life! He wants to renew your mind, heart, body and spirit and make you a new creature and give you a brand new life in him! 😉 He can take what’s UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and make them RIGHTEOUS! But they have to want it. They have to feel SO much REMORSE over what they’ve done in life so far, that they’d be willing to do almost anything to change it. And that’s where Jesus Christ comes in. Once a person BELIEVES in him, CALLS OUT to him in prayer, REPENTS of their sins and then GETS FULL-WATER-IMMERSION-BAPTIZED in his great heavenly name, they are MADE NEW in his site! 😉

See, that’s just the thing. Jesus Christ died on the cross over 1976+ years ago at the Place of Golgotha so that you and I and all of mankind could be forgiven of all our sins. ALL of our sins. Not just SOME of them, but ALL of them. And many people today are even WANTING a 2nd chance in life and WANTING to start on a fresh, clean slate, as it were. I can’t tell you HOW many times I’ve heard people say or mention on forum boards online that they wish they could “do life all over again”. Well, with Jesus Christ, you CAN start your life all over again and live a brand new life! And like I said, it doesn’t matter WHAT you’ve done in life so far, who you are, where you came from. Jesus’s FREE gift of salvation/forgiveness of sins and everlasting life is open to ALL who accept him, trust/believe in him, get baptized in his name and consequently, live their lives for him.

Jesus was crucified, then later taken down and placed into a tomb by Joseph of Ariamathea, etc. The Romans placed guards outside the tomb and placed a heavy stone in front of it so that no man could steal the body. Three days later, Jesus was resurrected from the dead, just like he said he’d be, and the heavy stone had been rolled away. His linen cloths were laying there where his body once was but Jesus’s body was no longer in the tomb. And then he appeared (with the marks through his hands and feet) to his apostles, etc. And 40 days after that, he ascended up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God, the Almighty Heavenly Father and there are even NON-CHRISTIAN historical accounts of this!

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/jesus-resurrection-proven-by-early-non-christian-writers/

Jesus Christ is 100% real, people! I’ve seen him with my own two eyes during a near-death experience when I was around age 2 or so. His voice has the ability to shake the Earth and the waters. Plus he also showed me the holes in both his wrists and near the tops of his feet.

Therefore, it stands to reason. If Jesus Christ is real (and I KNOW for 100% fact he’s real, so help me God, so help my spirit!), then Satan is real. And if Satan is real, then hell is real. And if hell is real…………well, you get the picture.

Notice the people around you. Examine real closely how they’re living their lives. And slowly over time, you will start to see that the people that “claim” they believe in God but don’t want to live their lives for him/serve him and the people who are nonbelievers or believers of false religions seem “lost”. You can see it in their eyes. They act all happy on outside but you can tell that deep, deep down inside, they are restless, never happy, never satisfied but they can’t fully figure out why. So they try the partying thing, the New Age thing, etc. and you will notice that they STILL aren’t satisfied and again, they STILL can’t figure out why. Just look at all the music and movie stars that are burned out, on drugs, alcoholics, etc. Fame and fortune most certainly has its price. And it’s not JUST the “living under the microscope” price, but rather, an EVEN MORE heftier price than THAT……rather, an eternal price!!!!!!!

Many of them even tried selling their soul to the devil in exchange for money and fame. But ya know what? Even then, there’s still hope for some of those poor people, as the following case demonstrates:

Unfortunately, some celebrities aren’t so lucky……..they don’t realize that Satan’s the great deceiver who actually HATES them and ALL of humanity……and that he never permanently upholds his end of the deal……..and many of them buy into the lie “well, I’ve sold my soul to devil, that’s it, there’s no more hope for me”. False! There IS hope for them. And that hope is the Lord Jesus Christ. If they humbly and SINCERELY come to Jesus Christ in prayer, and seek to UNDO the “soul selling to devil”, then I believe that the Lord will forgive them. I have no reason to believe otherwise. For our souls aren’t even ours to begin with, for they belong to God and God alone and it’s Jesus Christ who will decide where each soul spends eternity, NOT Satan!

Sadly, many celebrities and non-celebrities alike die without the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and are placed in hell immediately upon their deaths. And for them, THE MOST painful revelation in hell is the fact that they COULD’VE avoided all that eternal pain and suffering had they submitted themselves and their lives and hearts to the Lord Jesus Christ before it was too late (meaning, before they passed away and died in their earthly mortal lives). Cause afterall, the gifts of salvation/forgiveness of sins and eternal life are FREE to all who accept/trust/serve Jesus Christ.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36 (book of Mark, chapter 8, verse 36)

Jesus Christ Loves You!

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done in life so far. Jesus loves you. And in him, you can be made whole again.

Maybe you grew up in the Christian faith but later turned on it when you got older. Maybe you feel as though God just isn’t there in your life or that there is no god. Maybe you’ve seen some hypocritical things that Christians have done and it has turned you off from Christianity. Maybe you struggle with an alcohol or drug addiction or feel like you’re not good enough or worthy enough for God.

Or maybe you’ve just never heard the name of Jesus Christ before and don’t know who he is or what he did or why his name should be important. Or further still, maybe you were born into/follow a different religion OR you feel as though God is just a God of “too many rules”, etc.

Well, let me tell you something. Jesus loves you! It doesn’t matter if you’re a druggie and/or drug dealer, bank robber, alcoholic, embezzler, stripper, homosexual, jihadist, Hindu/Muslim/Atheist/Buddhist, etc. Jesus loves you. And he wants to have a spiritual relationship with you and to give you the FREE gifts of salvation(forgiveness of sins) and eternal life! And it’s not a “maybe” or a “case by case basis”, you can know for 100% certainty that you are saved/forgiven of sins and reserved a special place in God’s eternal kingdom!

The following are the very moving, personal testimonies of 2 radical Muslims and a former stripper who got saved by Jesus!

Former Stripper’s Testimony [warning: very moving, tear-jerker]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjTbuY9Q1BE&feature=related

Jesus Christ is now appearing to people in dreams and visions and coming into people’s lives through strange experiences by the droves! We are living in the Last Days. Jesus will take you just as you are. And you don’t have to be live like Mother Teresa for Jesus to love and accept you, Jesus will take you just as you are. Jesus extends the FREE gifts of eternal life in paradise AND salvation (forgiveness of sin) to EVERYONE who HUMBLY and SINCERELY calls upon his great and holy name!

It doesn’t matter WHAT you’ve done in life so far, Jesus loves you! And he wants to get to know you! He knew you before you were born and before you even took your very 1st breath!He has a special plan for you. And he will never leave or forsake you, after you learn to put your faith & trust in him! And once more, he CARES what you’re going through. Whatever problem you’re having in life right now (be it financial, physical, mental, emotional, etc.), Jesus gots a solution! So please, I urge you to come to Jesus today! Jesus is the greatest inner peace & joy I’ve ever known in all my LIFE! In him, my spirit is complete! And in him, I never have to be afraid for I know that I will be eternally with him in his eternal paradise someday! In Jesus’s name, you can be sure!

You won’t ever have to question rather or not you’ll be saved/forgiven of all your sins. For EVERY person who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus, obeys Jesus’s commandments and gets baptized in his name WILL be saved! Jesus gives the free gift of *eternal salvation* to all who call upon his name! And he alone has the keys to the gates of heaven & hell.

Jesus is the ONLY one who can save us from hell and the ONLY one that can give us the free gifts of Salvation and eternal life, if we call upon his name. Jesus is like a free *eternal present* given to us by God. But in order to receive the *free eternal present*, we must first approach God in prayer and *ask* to receive the “free gift of Jesus Christ” for the remission/forgiveness of our sins and eternal life.

We must approach Jesus Christ in prayer and pray for forgiveness of our sins. The moment we do and get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, we receive our *free gift of eternal life* with God someday. 

And YES…..baptism is a necessary rite of Christian passage to become saved….the MOMENT we become baptized (believing with all our minds, hearts, body and spirit that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, that he was crucified and died for our sins, that he was resurrected just 3 days later and ascended up to heaven 40 days later to be on the right hand side of the Heavenly Father/God Almighty), we receive the FREE gifts of the Holy Spirit (the gift of *spiritual discernment* to know what is truly of God and what is NOT truly of God) & everlasting life.

And IN this day and age when SO many false gospels are floating around in today’s world and over the internet and in LARGE, televangelist churches, it is IMPERTINENT that all should receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Not only for spiritual discernment but to CONVICT US OF OUR SIN! For example, if we are doing something against God’s will, the Holy Spirit will IMMEDIATELY point it out to us and LET US KNOW…....

In other words, it’s the spiritual force that keeps us grounded….It says in the bible that BLASPHEMY of the Holy Spirit is the ONLY unforgivable sin. So what does that mean, you may ask? Well, the truth is, nobody knows for 100% sure but here are all my best educated guesses: [and remember, a person has to literally die/pass way IN death in an UNREPENTANT state of sin to be unforgiven for it].

1. To not believe in God/Jesus Christ

2. To say that Jesus got his power from Satan to cast out demons, heal sickness, instead of getting it from the Heavenly Father

3. To not get baptized and believe it’s “not necessary” to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit/spiritual discernment & conviction

4. To mock the Holy Spirit and/or to call the Holy Spirit a liar

5. To say that Jesus was NOT the Son of God or to say that Jesus was NOT crucified

6. To not believe in the Holy Spirit 

7. To believe that Jesus and Satan were brothers or considered “equal” in heaven, before the fall

Matthew 12:31-32 has this to say: “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come”
