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

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

Let us look at a few examples, here:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

– Romans 3:4

Ashamed of the Old Testament? If so, You’re Denying Him!

Many of today’s Christians in the Middle East and Asian countries ARE in “hiding/underground” due to the “hostile nature of living in a “non-democratic society” (though Egypt & Iraq could be possibly be considered “partially democratic”?). 

But here in America & around the world (as far as Western/Democratic/European nations go), it seems as though “Christians” have made some sort of “Mass Exodus” from society. It would seem that they are “in hiding”. They (as a whole) are trying to hide from having any outside identifiable mark of being a “BIBLICAL Christian” while also trying to hide their “hearts” from Jesus, as well! 

Back around the 90’s to early 00’s, homosexuals were “hiding in the closet”, sort’ve speak, while Christians were hanging about in the open, public square, unafraid of Jesus and/or their religious affiliations. In fact, it was even considered a “good time” to be a Christian, then…..The Left Behind Series by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye was really taking off and getting people to consider/question their “Eternity”, while no “Christian businesses” were getting sued for this or that. 

But here in the year 2017, things have changed. NOW – due to the anti-Christian rhetoric swirling about in today’s world from the radical left – many Christians are now currently “living in fear” and “hiding in the proverbial closet”. This is tragic.

Luke 9:26 in the New Testament states: For whosoever shall be ashamed of me [Jesus Christ] and of my words [the bible], of him shall the Son of man [Jesus Christ] be ashamed, when he [Jesus Christ] shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels”

Translation? If YOU, as a “Christian”, are ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or his words – ANY of his words (Old OR New Testament) – Jesus Christ will be ashamed of YOU during the Great White Throne Judgement/Judgement Day IN FRONT OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER AND HIS HOLY ANGELS!

Now think about it for a minute. Think about what that truly means. Let it sink in for a bit………

“If I, a Christian, am ashamed of Jesus Christ and/or ANY part of his gospel (Old OR New Testament), then Jesus Christ will be ETERNALLY ASHAMED of ME, on Judgement Day, in the presence of the Heavenly Father & His Holy Angels!” 

Matthew 10:33 echoes this sentiment: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven”

Conclusion? To have Jesus Christ condemn an unfortunate soul to “the lake of fire” for denying him – on Judgement Day – is ONE thing. But for him to do it IN FRONT OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER & HOLY ANGELS? It’s more like a PUBLIC SENTENCING/ EXECUTION, FOLKS!

In the New Testament, we read the case of the apostle Peter denying Jesus 3 times. But afterwards, Peter repented and went about preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

So does that mean if you deny Jesus ONCE before someone, that that means you’re automatically going to the lake of fire after you die? No, ofcourse not, ESPECIALLY if you quickly repent and vow to never deny Him again! What it means (in that bible passage) is that a person PERPETUALLY denies Him before others (rather that person denies Him in their heart or not is besides the point), and is PERPETUALLY ASHAMED of the gospel (ANY part of the gospel, be it Old or New Testament or BOTH!) 

Some Christians, sadly, probably feel “ashamed” about the Old Testament, since in it, there’s lots of warfare and because Eve converses with a “talking serpent” in the Garden of Eden. They might even go so far as to say/think: “Adam & Ever didn’t REALLY happen……….it’s just *allegory* of sorts”.

And YES….this same type of theoretical person might proudly proclaim the name of Jesus everywhere they go and be “proud” of the New Testament, even testifying OF/ABOUT the New Testament to others……..But IF they’re “ashamed” of the Old Testament in ANY type of way, (either in the depths of their hearts/minds/souls and/or among other people), then they are, in effect, ashamed of PART of the gospel since the Lord is the same yesterday, today and evermore; He’s everlasting!

John 1:1-3 states: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was GodThe same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”

Therefore, if a Christian is all in love with the New Testament but despises/is ashamed of the Old Testament, then essentially, in a nutshell, that Christian is LITERALLY metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like you in the New Testament but I don’t like you at all in the Old Testament”.

Newsflash: JESUS WAS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT! In Luke 9:26 and Matthew 24:30 in the New Testament, he calls himself the Son of Man, right? Guess what?

Daniel 7:13-14 in the OLD TESTAMENT says: I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed

1 John 5:10 and Romans 1:4 in the NEW Testament, respectively, proclaim: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son” —-“And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead”

While Daniel 3:25 in the OLD Testament reads: “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

Denying the Old Testament (or being “ashamed” of it), is really no different than metaphorically saying to Jesus: “I like your white garment but I HATE your sandals!” Or “I totally dig your sandals but your white garment is something no self-respecting individual would wear”.

THE BIBLE IS NOT A CAFETERIA, FOLKS! JESUS’S WORDS ARE NOT A “CAFETERIA!” 

And just like Peter, there’s many Christians today who proclaim: “No Jesus, I’d NEVER deny you!” 

So why then do they reject the Old Testament and see it as “no longer viable or relevant?” Why do they treat Jesus’s words AS IF they’re a “cafeteria” where they can just pick and choose which words they like (Old Vs. New Testament) and which words they don’t?

There’s even Christians out there today who pick apart the Old and New Testaments THEMSELVES, such as: “Well……I like THIS part of the Old Testament but I hate THAT part of the Old Testament” or “I like THIS part of the New Testament but DESPISE THAT PART”. THE BIBLE IS NOT A SHOE STORE WHERE ONE CAN JUST “PICK OUT” WHAT SHOE FITS AND WHAT SHOE DOESN’T!

JESUS’S TRUTH DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND *FEELINGS & EMOTIONS* AND WHAT *FEELS/SEEM RIGHT*! THE BIBLE AND JESUS’S TRUTH SIMPLY **IS** AND THERE’S NO TAMPERING WITH IT! 

THE BIBLE’S TRUTH (JESUS’S TRUTH) IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND EVERMORE. IT’S EVERLASTING!!!!

What ALOT of Christians don’t realize today is that Jesus Christ was PROPHESIED OF in the Old Testament, while ALSO simultaneously making “pre-flesh appearences” IN the Old Testament – known as “Christophanies” – (look it up on Google). So essentially, that’s WHY people are – in effect – actually DENYING JESUS *when* they deny/ignore/are ashamed of the Old Testament! 

In fact, let me take this a step further. There’s OVER 333+ Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament, foretelling of a coming (in-the-flesh appearing) of a “Jewish Messiah” that were SUCCESSFULLY FULFILLED BY Jesus Christ in the New Testament: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/m/

Therefore, the New Testament is “Volume 2” of Jesus’s Words, a CONTINUATION of the Old Testament. So who are WE to DENY “Volume 1” of God’s Truth that FORETOLD of “Volume 2?” 

[NOTE: Rather or not you accept the Apocrypha (The “Middle Testament”) to be God’s Truth or not is between YOU and Jesus (although I myself personally DO see it as part of the Lord’s Truth). Therefore, using the same analogy as above, the Apocrypha would be theoretically known as “Post-Volume 1, Prequel to Volume 2”].

So I leave you all with THIS question: Do YOU believe the bible (the COMPLETE bible – Old + New Testament) – is the FULL written Word of God? If not, why? Because HOW you answer that question will determine your fate before Jesus on the Day of Judgement! I pray that any person who reads this WILL accept the COMPLETE written truth of Jesus!

Note: If you’d like a KJV bible + Apocrypha, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “Holy Bible: King James Version + Apocrypha” by Derek A. Shaver! It’s basically the 1611 KJV in modern spelling, with the Apocrypha situated BETWEEN the Old and New Testaments.

And if you already have a KJV bible and just want an Apocrypha by ITSELF, I’d recommend: “The New Oxford Annotated Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version” by Michael D. Coogan and Marc Z. Brettler

[Please note: IF you live in a country or region where ONLY the New Testament is available or ONLY the Old Testament is available, or where practically NO bibles are available, don’t fret, Jesus knows! Although you should try to do everything in your power that you possibly can TO GET access to BOTH Testaments, Old and New, and if you can, the Apocrypha (Middle Testament). Jesus will HONOR your quest for The Truth! 😉 And remember: to die for Christ is GAIN, while to live for the Devil is SPIRITUAL FOOLISHNESS!]. 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lord Is My Joy & My Salvation! ;)

I can think back on the most happiest moment of MY LIFE! It was when I very first met Jesus Christ for the VERY first time in my life (during a NDE) with NO previous knowledge of him! 😉 

Whenever I look nowadays at the pool steps and look at the very place where he once sat (during my NDE), my soul starts to cry emotional tears of joy and I start to get all joyfully emotional! I can’t help it! 

I think of my life BEFORE Yeshua/Jesus Christ came to rescue me from death that day (in more ways than one) and it seems like my life prior to him was pretty pointless. And then I think about my life AFTER meeting Jesus Christ/Yeshua during my near-death experience and how EXCITING and FULFILLING it was, KNOWING that a) there was a God and that b) that same almighty God really, truly cared about me, no matter what! 😉 I can’t even BEGIN to describe what that feeling is like!

I remember the swimming pool water being extremely cold that day, especially at the point in time when he told me to dunk myself under so he could “baptize me in his great, heavenly name!” I remember the feeling of JOY, ELATION, ESTASTICNESS, PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS, HEALING, JUBILATION that came over me as soon as I came back up to the surface of the water! It was the best feeling that my soul has EVER experienced in all its existence!

And when I READ the bible, ESPECIALLY the New Testament, I think to myself with amazement and wonder: “Wow! That is THE JESUS that descended down out of heaven to come save me that day! That is THE JESUS who sat me in his lap and giggled when he splashed water on me! That is THE JESUS who warned me of the End Times and his almighty Judgement! That is THE JESUS who told me I had a pure heart and a dizzying intellect!” And I sometimes feel emotionally overwhelmed. I’ve been known to CRY (emotional tears of jubilation and JOY) when I read certain bible passages about him or spoken directly FROM him!

Though at times in my life I’ve gone through some bad things, and/or have felt extremely anxious and depressed, the Lord Jesus Christ has ALWAYS been there to see me through! Plus (get this!), he EVEN has a SENSE OF HUMOR! I kid you not! Let me share with you one of THE MOST FUNNIEST things he’s ever done:

It was Spring Break 2003. Me and my bestfriend Sarah were heading off to Arizona and New Mexico to see the sites. We drove through severe rain in southern Arizona and by the time we hit Northern Arizona, it was severe blizzard-like conditions. Well, to be quite frank, I was getting quite BORED with the “traditional prayer format” of “Dear Lord, I need this or that. Help me please, Amen”.

So I turned to Sarah and said Hey dude, I got an idea! and started giggling. She was wondering what was up. I then help up a “pretend CB radio with my right hand” while driving and said into the pretend CB radio: “Eagle 1, Eagle 1, this is Eagle 2, over. We need some major help down here. We’re caught in a really bad snow storm right now and there’s about 15 cars or more on the side of the road and we don’t want to become one of them, over”.

I sensed nothing in response so far. So again, I help up my pretend CB-radio in my right hand while driving and said: “Eagle 1, eagle 1, can you hear me, over? 10/4, 10/4, We REALLY, REALLY need your help right now, Eagle 1, I’m dead serious! Do you copy, over?” and just then, Sarah and I heard “static crackle” at what sounded like an ACTUAL CB radio come out of the car’s radio system, along with the audible words: Stop worrying, eagle 2! Help’s on the way, LOOK BEHIND YOU – OVER“. Sarah and I just looked at each other and both said at the same time, “Is that an ACTUAL CB radio? How did they hear us? Weird…?”

Not long after that, Sarah and I noticed a small U-haul truck coming up in the right-hand lane off to our right. And then, all of a sudden, Sarah said, “Dude, I think you’re supposed to get behind the U-haul truck with their emergency flashers on”. So I quickly got in the right lane and we got behind the small U-haul truck.

And then…..Sarah started giggling. I said, “what’s so funny?” She said, “look at where they’re from!” Their license plate said “Washington”.  Washington was the 1ST PRESIDENT of the U.S. and the Eagle is our National U.S. symbol, THUS, “Eagle 1”! 😉 Therefore, the Lord NOT ONLY gave us an actual CB radio response IN RESPONSE to my pretend CB-radio prayer, but he also HUMORED us a bit in the ANSWERING of the prayer! 😉 Hehehe

But that’s just one of MANY instances where the Lord displayed his sense of humor to me! Another time the Lord displayed his sense of humor is when I was at work, and I was carrying a small metal pan. And about 30 seconds after my crush walked by, something made me “drop” the pan on the floor (that I had had a VERY firm grip on) and it made a BOOMING LOUD CLANG (which made my crush look back and laugh) and I could FEEL the Lord LAUGHING at me and the embarrassed look on my face! Though I could tell it was “affectionate/teasing” type laughter and not the cruel kind. hahaha 😉 

The Lord has ALSO done things where he silently encouraged me to go talk to this person or that person (who ended up being some of the very best friends of my life!) He’s been there for me through thick and thin! When I am smiling, HE is smiling! And when I am crying, I can sense that HE is crying, too! Which makes sense, considering that the bible says that it’s not his will that ANY should perish! 

Before Jesus came into my life, I was nothing, I was no-one! But IN him, I am everything, I am SOMEONE! Apart from him, I can do NOTHING! But WITH him, I can do ANYTHING! He’s helped me overcome my anxiety on certain things and my soda pop addition, etc. (some things I thought I’d NEVER break free from!) He’s helped to humble me and to correct me when I need correcting! He’s enlightened me and taught me SO many things about what his word IS and what it isn’t!

He’s taken the spiritual blinders off my eyes and has now shown me his full gospel IN FULL! He’s given me strength when I was depressed, downtrodden, anxious, alone or angry! He’s helped me to overcome the most difficult of situations and people! He’s grabbed me out of Satan’s grasp more than once! He will ALWAYS be there to listen to me whenever I have a problem, struggle or question about something! Basically, he’s the best thing that EVER happened to me in this life and apart from him, I WOULD have no reason for being! I am ALIVE today because of HIM! I am forgiven of all my sins because of HIM and the spiritual sacrifice he made for ALL of mankind! And someday, I’ll get to live with him FOREVERMORE! 

The Lord is MY JOY & MY SALVATION! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

There Will Be/Are Scoffers In The Last Days

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lustsAnd saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” – 2 Peter 3:3 [New Testament, 2nd book of Peter, Chapter 3, verse 3]

One does NOT have to look far to see that there are SEVERAL “mockers” and “scoffers” in the last days. But what many people don’t realize is that “last days scoffers/mockers” were PROPHESIED in the bible over 4,000 some years ago!

These clips, sadly, are just a very small tip of the iceberg! There’s SO many, many more that I don’t have time to post! But know THIS: what the Lord has said would happen at the “End of Days” IS NOW HAPPENING…….and if that’s not a sign of the Lord’s soon return, then I don’t know what is!

However, as THIS guy points out, there is a point of “spiritual probation”. And once that “spiritual probation” time passes, it’s too late! People’s eternal fates (by the time of “probation closing”) have already been sealed! So don’t go thinking that you have all the way up to the time Jesus and his angels part the sky like a scroll to repent……..

And like I said, the videos down below are just a small “sample” of all the mocking/scoffing going on in today’s world. And the mocking/scoffing INCREASES (not surprisingly) by the year, month and even DAY! But know THIS, folks: the more and more “mocking/scoffing” there is towards Jesus Christ/Yeshua/the bible in the world, the closer and closer the Lord Jesus’s/Yeshua’s return is! But WHEN the Lord returns, he won’t be coming with peace but with a sharp two-edged sword! That’s what the bible states. 

And what’s REALLY sad is that all these mockers/scoffers down below seem to have NO IDEA of the eternal condemnation that awaits them……or don’t care…….one of the two. And like I said, these mockers/scoffers are just ones of MANY: 

Tosh.0 Beef Baby Jesus

Jewish TV show mocks Jesus/Yeshua

Larry David pees on picture of Jesus during TV Show called “Curb Your Enthusiasm”

Tosh.0 Thanksgiving Gay Parade

http://tosh.cc.com/video-clips/cxybpj/thanksgiving-gay-parade’

Jay-Z & Kanye West Mock Jesus

NOTE: If you watched any of the above videos and said to yourself, “oh come on, it’s not THAT bad”, then you need to kindly re-examine the reasons of WHY you think it’s “not that bad”. The lady in the last video (the “belly dancer”) honestly looks DEMONICALLY POSSESSED at certain parts of the video if you watch it real closely! But see, that’s the problem. This world and the people OF this world have become SO desensitized to “Jesus/bible mocking” that they don’t even really see it as a “problem”, anymore! 

It always personally saddens and angers me whenever someone mocks Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua. For these people have NO IDEA what they’re truly saying! For if they TRULY realized the hell/lake of fire that they were headed for after this life and truly realized the total SIGNIFICANCE of what Jesus Christ/Yeshua did for mankind on the cross for ETERNAL forgiveness of sins, they’d quickly change their tune! But mostly, it’s a thing of PRIDE! People don’t like someone else (in this case, Almighty God) holding the reigns. They’d rather be in charge of their OWN destiny and fate!

BUT…….they’re not Almighty God, they didn’t create the universe and the heavens. They don’t have the eternal “say so” that they so desire. And see, that’s where Satan and his demons come in………they LIE to humanity and try to TELL THEM things such as: “You can be in charge of your own destiny”. But if THAT were so, there would BE no Revelation 20:10 which states, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE in today’s world laugh off the concept of “hell” and say things like, “I don’t CARE if I go to hell, party on, whew hew!” However, those people should do this simple “exercize”. They should take the flame from a small lighter, then hold their hand over that flame……..and then imagine a flame that’s 10,000 times hotter than THAT flame……while ALSO imagining if their WHOLE ENTIRE BODY was being burned and consumed ALIVE in that flame……with NO OTHER HUMANS AROUND for companionship……a place in which Jesus says there will “WEEPING AND KNASHING OF TEETH”. Hhhmmm, doesn’t sound like such a “party” afterall, now, does it? For it is a place of ETERNAL TORMENT!!!!!! 

fire, eternal hell

Proverbs 1:22 and 1:26 state: How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?” I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh”

In other words, the Lord will MOCK mockers! And he will LAUGH when their fear cometh!

Luke 21:26 says: men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken”

Proverbs 3:24 says: “Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly”

All of the mockers and SNL-type syndicates are laughing NOW……..but once eternity hits, and once the Eternal Judgement seat of Christ opens up and they realize that Jesus is real and that his eternal judgement is REAL, it suddenly won’t be a “joke” anymore!

They’ll find themselves on the wrong end of God’s ETERNAL WRATH and they’ll be HYSTERICALLY CRYING OUT AND SCREAMING something along the lines of: “We were wrong, Jesus! We were wrong! Please forgive us! Please give us another chance! Please don’t send us to the flames! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE FORGIVE US, O LORD JESUS, THOU MIGHTY SON OF GOD!” But sadly, it’ll be too late for these folks. And THE MOST PAINFUL REALIZATION “IN” the eternal flames of torment will be that they could’ve prevented it, HAD they truly listened to the Lord and all his prophets! 

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity – [Matthew 7:21-23]

The simple truth is that “mockers/scoffers” truly have NO IDEA of the hell/eternal condemnation in the flames that they’re headed for……..and if they DO have a clue, then they honestly think “it’s not going to be that bad”. However, WEEPING AND KNASHING OF TEETH? That sure doesn’t sound like such a smooth-flowing “party” to ME, how about YOU? 

But the sad reality is that us biblical-roots Christians can preach and preach about hell/eternal condemnation till we’re blue in the face. But the truth is that if people don’t want to listen, they won’t! And there’s nothing we can say or do (WHEN a person refuses to listen to the Lord’s gospel/message), except pray and wait for the Holy Spirit to do his work in those people! Because UNTIL their spiritual eyes are opened, they will REFUSE to see!

I know it’s hard when people refuse to believe in the gospel or the reality of God’s existence. I also know it’s hard when people close to you refuse to listen to the gospel of Salvation. But you can’t give up, folks! You must STILL keep on trying! Think back to when YOU were a non-believer……would YOU have wanted some “Christian” to have given up on YOU back then, when you were still a non-believer? NO! Ofcourse not! So DON’T give up on others! Don’t give up on your non-believing friends, family and coworkers……for as long as there’s still breath in their lungs, there’s STILL HOPE that their spiritual eyes might be opened to Jesus’s everlasting gospel of eternal life AND Salvation!

One approach I sometimes employ is what I call the “Revelation 21-22 approach”. I’ll suggest a person reads the entire two chapters of Revelation 21 and 22. And then, I’ll suggest, “Wouldn’t you WANT to be in a place where there’s no pain, no tears or suffering, ONLY happiness?” Most would agree that they would. So then I’ll PROCLAIM, “well, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to this place of eternal life and Salvation”.

Some get offended (especially if they’re Hindu, Muslim, etc.) Others get seemingly confused, as they were taught that “ALL PATHS LEAD TO ONE” (Satan’s false teaching!) And yet others aren’t sure WHAT to think. But we DO know that John 14:6 expressedly states: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me“. 

In other words, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal life, the ONLY way to eternal salvation and the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins. There IS no other way! 

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12 

The Virgin Mary won’t save you, ALLAH won’t save you, Joseph Smith won’t save you, Brahma/Krishna/Vishnu won’t save you, Buddha won’t save you, SATAN/Wiccan goddessess won’t save you, you get the picture…….

You have two choices and two choices, ONLY! You can live a life FOR Jesus/Yeshua or you can live a life that’s AGAINST Jesus/Yeshua. You’re free to choose which option you want to do. But what you’re NOT free of is the ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES of said choice. So choose wisely.  

 

  

The Homosexual Agenda: Satan’s War For Your Soul

Back in the 80’s, the Pledge of Alliance WITH the words “one nation under God” was THE NORM, homosexuality was never talked about in the schools and “politically correct” was a term (as far as I know) that wasn’t even thought up, yet! We were a nation (atleast on the surface) that appeared to love God/Christianity!

Today in the year 2015, things are TOTALLY and COMPLETELY different! The bibles have been pushed out of schools, the LGBT/pro-homosexual agenda has taken over the schools/school system as well as “cultural society”, not to mention that all we hear about now in the media is how GREAT homosexuality/sodomy is and how WONDERFUL things are (that are actually considered SINS in the bible!) Not to mention the hypersexualization of young girls and young boys by today’s mass media/marketers. It’s beyond sickening!

But one of the most disturbing sign of the times is THIS: It’s most recently come to my attention that Dance Precision Studios (during a short ABC news clip) dressed up girls as young as 6-8 years old in “prostitute-like garb” and had them dancing like strippers (bumping and grinding) on LIVE national TV during a “dance competition”. But were the PARENTS up in arms about this? Sadly, no. And it’s just a sign of the times we’re living in. In the short Youtube video clip aired on ABC News, the girls’ own parents were in the audience screaming with excitement and CHEERING!

It would seem that Satan and his demonic “operatives” have DECEIVED these poor parents into thinking that’s “normal” for young girls in today’s society to do. This is beyond crazy, folks! ;( Please pray for these parents to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before it’s too late and also please pray for the young girls involved with the dance video that they won’t grow up too fast. They NEED to have a normal childhood! And I pray that they DO! Just think of all the emotional and psychological damage that dance shows like that are gonna do to these poor girls in the long run! I just hate to think about the implications that they themselves might turn into/aspire to be hookers someday, thinking “there’s no harm in it”, etc.!

But the point I want to make is that Planned Parenthood’s pro-homosexual sex ed in the schools encourages promiscuous sex/pre-marital sex among today’s young people well before they’re ready for that sort’ve thing. In fact, the Gay Movement and Planned Parenthood’s “liberal” views on sex seem to go hand in hand. For BOTH of them live by the Satanic principle placed forth by well-known Satanist Aleister Crowley which states: “do what thou wilt”.

Then again, the hypersexualization of boys and young girls is what Planned Parenthood and the LGBT agenda had in mind all along! Why? Because young children are like sponges. They’re young/impressionable/not yet fully developed and imitate what they see in the media. (For those of you skeptics out there who think that “the media doesn’t effect people”, look no further than Youtube parody videos. Enough said). Therefore, Planned Parenthood and the LGBT community knows they MUST reach children when they’re young, before they’ve had time to fully develop and make up their OWN minds about things!

They encourage boys and girls to “experiment” on one another. And so when young impressionable boys and girls do that, and find it “feels good”, they automatically assume in their mind, “oh, I must be gay” when that personally can’t be further from the truth! It’s just that their body responded to physical experimentation with another classmate, nothing more, nothing less.

But Planned Parenthood and LGBT activists especially like to get children in the teen years. This is when most teenagers are “confused” about their bodies/body image/puberty and then are later “demonically tricked” into “becoming gay” (IF they “become gay”). These poor/unfortunate teens/children were/are “broken in spirit” to begin with and were/are oftentimes unsure of themselves. Many came/come from broken and/or abusive families, have/had some sort of childhood trauma/sexual abuse happen to them, their parents divorced when they were young or are now going through a divorce and/or they didn’t have/don’t have a father or mother around, were/are SEVERELY bullied/depressed as teens/children, etc. 

And Planned Parenthood and the LGBT agenda senses all that “inner brokenness”  from a mile away and CAPITALIZES on it. And what Planned Parenthood employees and LGBT Activists don’t realize is that THEY THEMSELVES are under MOST SEVERE DEMONIC OPPRESSION, which they, in turn unknowingly use to DEMONICALLY OPPRESS OTHERS!

Please remember from the bible that Satan and his demons (fallen angels whom Satan successfully got to rebel against God/Jesus Christ) are **BEYOND DETERMINED** on destroying humanity from within! And the gay movement is one of SEVERAL ways in which they DO JUST THAT! They KNOW they’re going to burn forever someday so they want as many humans as possible eternally burning WITH them! Ya know what they say, misery loves company! Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” – Revelation 12:12

Therefore, Satan either wants a young, impressionable person TURNING “gay” OR he wants a person (specifically, a CHRISTIAN person) to SUPPORT THE GAYS/GAY MOVEMENT. Just look around today at how many “Christians” OPENLY support homosexuality (though the bible CONDEMNS it in both Old AND New Testaments!) The numbers are just ASTOUNDING!

And lets face it, Satan and his demons HATE humans! Absolutely, positively HATE THEM! Why? Because mankind is God’s treasured creation, that’s why. And whatever God declared SACRED, Satan wants to PROFANE!

God designed marriage to be between a man and a woman. Satan and his “operatives” (both demonic and human) want GAY MARRIAGE IN THE CHURCHES! God designed a family to be a man/husband, a woman/wife and (if applicable) CHILDREN. Satan and his “operatives” want GAY ADOPTION and GAY FAMILIES. God wants both men and women to feel naturally attracted to the opposite sex. Satan and his “operatives” want as many people as possible HAVING GAY ATTRACTIONS and/or GAY LIFESTYLES!

God wants people to believe/follow/adhere to his divine principles and/or 7 Annual Holy Days in the bible. Satan and his “operatives” want modern-day Christians following a FALSE VERSION of Christianity with the celebration of PAGAN HOLIDAYS like Christmas, Easter, etc. God wants people following HIS Holy Days, and HIS Holy Days, ONLY (Pentecost, Passover, Trumpets, etc.), Satan and his “operatives” want today’s modern-day Christians writing off God’s Holy Days as “Jewish Days, ONLY” or as “UNNECESSARY in today’s time/culture!” God wants people to believe his eternal truths in the bible and to LIVE by them, Satan and his “operatives” want people (even CHRISTIANS, of all people) DISREGARDING the bible and writing it off as “allegory”, “myth”, “Jewish history” or “teaching tool”.

Basically, the Gay Movement and every single thing associated with it was/is designed to try to SUCK AWAY YOUR SOUL! Because let me tell you something: even if you’re NOT a homosexual, IF you support the sin of homosexuality/gay marriage/gay adoption, in the Lord’s eyes, it’s really no different than if you had personally partaken of that same sin, YOURSELF! So please keep that in mind.

All the Christians out there who SUPPORT gay marriage/etc. really need to stop and ask themselves WHY. Is it because of the media’s “positive portrayal” of gays in the last several years? Is it because some gay person “whined” to you about “they can’t help it, they were born that way”? What is it?

And tell me: why has science not yet found the “gay gene”? Certainly our MAJOR advance of technology in Genetics would’ve found it by NOW, had it truly existed. But let me tell you something, folks! THE GAY GENE DOESN’T EXIST! Even some gay activists themselves admitted to this fact!

http://onenewsnow.com/culture/2008/08/07/homosexual-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene#.VNflLC7sznk

So what does that tell you, people? Exactly! There IS no gay gene, never has been and never WILL be! It’s an outright LIE from Satan!

And in the news article down below, a lesbian activist HERSELF admits that the SOLE purpose of “gay marriage/gay movement” is to DESTROY THE INSTITUTION OF TRADITIONAL ONE-MAN/ONE-WOMAN MARRIAGE AND THE FAMILY, ALTOGETHER! (Which was, oddly enough, also MARGARET SANGER’S GOAL, TOO — the FOUNDER of Planned Parenthood! Coincidence? I THINK NOT! For THAT is what tells me that Planned Parenthood and the Gay Movement go HAND-IN-HAND, folks! WAKE UP! WE’RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS! GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICA & THE WORLD!

The number of “sins” today that the world blindly accepts as “rights”? Specifically “gay rights”, “abortion rights” and “sexual promiscuity” rights? GOD IS ANGRY, FOLKS! HE’S ANGRY!!!!! And so it’s only a matter of time before this once great nation of America gets attacked by outside forces! God has completely removed his protection after the U.S. Supreme Court gay marriage decision! It’s only a matter of DAYS or MONTHS before we’re attacked! So are you ready? Are you ready to live in a world without God and become a 3rd-world country overnight, folks? I’M DEAD SERIOUS! I’M NOT FRONTIN’ AND I AIN’T KIDDING! For WHEN I say that God’s Wrath is Upon America — what I consider to be the “spiritual capital of the world” –, I mean that God’s WRATH is upon America! THIS IS NO JOKE, FOLKS!)  

http://news.yahoo.com/lesbian-activist-surprisingly-candid-speech-gay-marriage-fight-144222847.html

So IF you yourself (dear reader of this blog) are an actively gay person, Jesus Christ CAN and WILL set you free from a life of homosexuality if you just let him! DON’T believe the Devil’s LIES that you were “born that way”! There is NO gay gene! Jesus Christ can set  you free! Cry out to him in prayer! Mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and mind! Call out to Jesus Christ in prayer and CONTINUE calling out to Jesus Christ in prayer and he WILL set you free, I guarantee it!

Planned Parenthood and the LGBT Agenda are like 2 closely-related cousins in a candy store, with the candy store being SIN. And there they are, trying to pass out “free candy” to CHILDREN and TEENAGERS and whomever will listen to their LIES! And many people are susceptible! You don’t necessary have to accept/eat their “candy” to be spiritually poisoned by it! All you’d have to do to BE spiritually poisoned by it (metaphorically speaking) is to see their “free candy passing out” as a GOOD THING!

How much longer before people will start to OPEN UP THEIR EYES and realize the TOTAL DAMAGE that Planned Parenthood and the LGBT Movement (even amongst THEMSELVES?) has done to the minds, hearts, bodies and SOULS of people/children/teenagers and even to our society/country/global world AS A WHOLE?

Here, former homosexuals speak out AGAINST the demonic “Gay Movement” (and their voices are RARELY heard in today’s media because quite frankly, it makes the Gay Movement look bad):

 

 

 

 

 

12 Most Important Aspects of the Christian Faith:

The 12 MOST IMPORTANT aspects of the Christian faith are as follows:

1). TO PRAISE THE LORD & Learning to Overcome Times We’re Feeling UNGRATEFUL/ANGRY Towards The Lord so THAT we become GRATEFUL to The Lord for all that he’s done in our lives!

2). TO TRUST IN THE LORD & Learning to Overcome Times When We’re Feeling DISTRUST towards The Lord or distrust for the fact that he’ll do the things he SAYS in the bible or otherwise tells us he will do!

3). TO FAITHFULLY SERVE THE LORD & Learning to Overcome Times When “We Just Don’t Feel Like Serving the Lord” (for whatever reason……”I’ve got too much schoolwork to do”, “it’s football season”, “work’s been hectic lately”, etc.)!

4). TO BELIEVE *IN* THE LORD & Learning to Overcome A LACK OF FAITH *IN* The Lord! (This one is HUGE! For imagine what would’ve happened to the ancient Israelites if Moses had a COMPLETE lack of faith in the Lord or what would’ve happened if Abraham hadn’t had enough faith in the Lord and had actually GONE through with sacrificing Isaac (the chosen seed) in the Old Testament! Those 2 examples illustrate how just ONE person’s lack of faith can *potentially* have devastating results!)

5). TO READ (AND MEDITATE ON) THE BIBLE **OFTEN** & Learning to Overcome the Times “We Just Don’t Feel Like Reading the Bible”! (Again, this one’s also huge! For if you don’t even READ the bible and know what’s in there, front to back – Old Testament to New Testament, Satan and his minions and all the “false teachers” out there can VERY EASILY deceive you since you won’t have the spiritual discernment to know what’s in the bible and what isn’t! So be careful, folks!)

6). TO STUDY THE BIBLE & Not Just “Know” the Bible! (For Anyone Can Quote Scripture or “Know” Scripture but yet, not EVERYONE is able to take the bible and actually APPLY IT TO THEIR VERY LIVES!)

7). TO PRAY & Learning to Overcome The Times in Our Lives When We Feel Like “I Don’t NEED to Pray to God About Anything In My Life Right Now, For I Already HAVE Everything I Need!” (That spiritual attitude of ours that we get from time to time is DEADLY! For it leads to ALL Sin and UNGRATEFULNESS! Satan is EVER-SO-HAPPY when we STOP PRAYING, because it draws us AWAY from Jesus Christ & makes Satan HAPPY WITH GLEE, whenever this happens in our lives! So don’t let Satan win! PRAY CONTINUALLY IN YOUR LIVES!)

8). TO GET BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! (Again, this one’s IMPORTANT: for it’s meant to represent the ceremonial washing away of sins and meant to be a “public declaration” of one’s faith and being “set apart” from the unbelieving/unbaptized world. Now: if someone dies before being baptized, but believed with all their heart, souls and mind in Jesus Christ, will THAT person be saved? I would say yes. But for all the people who HAVE a chance to get baptized — (FULL WATER IMMERSION, NOT “SPRINKLING” SINCE “SPRINKLING” IS UN-BIBLICAL, FOLKS!) — you should get baptized since it’s commanded 7+ times in the bible!

9). TO SPREAD/SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH ALL PEOPLES AND ALL NATIONS ***AND*** TO HELP THOSE IN NEED & Learning To Overcome The Times “We Just Don’t Feel Like Sharing the Gospel With Others”! (Remember all the “lost sheep” out there and remember all the “lost souls” out there who haven’t yet come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, yet. THEY should be your focus. And if they won’t “listen to you”, drop the conversation, move on to another person who might be open to hearing the gospel and then later come back and continually/daily pray for that person. Our God is an awesome God and he answers all diligent prayers of the saints! (that is, to say, you and me). Everyone has a conversion story. What’s YOURS? Share it with the world and don’t wait! (Time is of the essence).

10). TO SPIRITUALLY ENDURE UNTIL HE [JESUS CHRIST] COMES AGAIN ON THE EARTH! (And this is important since, though it’s tempting, we can’t just give up at the first sign of trouble or persecution. For imagine if we were all on a large battlefield and Satan and his demon spirits and ALL non-believers and FALSE TEACHERS were on ONE end of the battlefield and WE were on the OTHER end of the battle field. Okay, now imagine that Satan has given orders for them all to charge at us FULL SPEED AHEAD!

Now imagine that Jesus Christ is standing in the “center” of us, no fear, not moving, not even yet speaking. SOME people on our side are going to become DEATHLY AFRAID (even with Jesus standing right there, in the midst of us) and are going to either run and break ranks or sit down on the ground with their hands up saying “we surrender! we surrender! please don’t hurt us!”while in the meantime, Satan is laughing hysterically with GLEE *AS* he and his demons take the “I surrender” people as “CAPTIVES/PRISONERS OF SPIRITUAL WAR” while Jesus Christ is mourning the loss of them and praying in his great heavenly name for them to come back!)

And SOME folks are just gonna be neutral, not really proclaiming to “fight” for EITHER side (they’re being what’s called “spiritually lukewarm”) and it’s THESE folks that Jesus Christ will be MOST ANGRY at, since they won’t clearly pick either side to “fight” on!

Yet, OTHERS of us on our side of the battle field are going to look over at Jesus, wait for his command and then COUNTER CHARGE with all the faith that they possibly have and can muster. And yes, it being a spiritual battle, they’re likely gonna suffer a wound here, a wound there and might even get knocked down a time or two. Or three. But it’s how they come back AFTER their “wounds” and HOW FAST they come back after their “wounds” that determine if they successfully “stay on course” or not, as the spiritual battle rages on! 

11). To LEARN BY EXAMPLE from the Prophets of Old in the Old Testament and by the Disciples/Jesus Christ/etc. in The New Testament! (Many of us can LEARN from the prophets of the Old Testament and from Jesus Christ & his disciples in the New Testament. The Prophets of Old in the Old Testament had both their strengths AND their weaknesses, which we today can DEFINITELY learn from! Just like we can also learn from the strengths & weaknesses of Jesus’ disciples in the New Testament, as well! Oftentimes we forget that the Old Testament prophets and even Jesus’s own disciples were normal human beings, just like us, with thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and occasionally, YES, sin in their life! And how they each individually DEALT with those sins or had their sins DEALT WITH by the Lord can serve as a powerful reminder and teaching tool to us ALL!)

12). To REPENT OF ALL SIN(S) ***AND*** TO FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE HURT US!

Further explained:

1). We should always be praising God/Jesus Christ for all that he’s done (not only for the creation of the world and the universe and the heavens but also for what he’s done for the ancient Israelites during the Old Testament and also what Jesus Christ has done for the peoples of the New Testament, as well as what he’s done for us (and/or other people) in our own lives!)

2). We can’t just PRAY for the Lord to do something, we must TRUST that he (in his own due divine time) will do it! We must TRUST that he knows what’s best for us in our lives and trust and wait on HIS timing and not our OWN timing! For it stands to reason: if he created the Earth & the heavens, he TRULY knows what’s best for us and when, does he not? 😉

3). We must SERVE (& love) the Lord with all our heart, all our mind, and all our strength! We can’t just READ his words in the bible, we must also OBEY them! For Jesus Christ said in John 14:15 “ If ye love me, keep my commandments“. And by serving others (such as, helping out those who are less fortunate than us, for example), we are in effect, serving God!

4). We must BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for our sins on the cross and that God the Heavenly Father resurrected him on the 3rd day, as it was written and that 40 days later, he ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father (as was witnessed by several of eyewitnesses in the New Testament).

5). We must not just KNOW the bible but we must READ the bible, in order to have TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH. For if you don’t know the bible or what’s in there, you’ll be susceptible to just about ANY false teaching there is, out there!

6). We must not just READ the bible, we must also STUDY the bible, IN GREAT DETAIL! (Even the good Lord himself ENCOURAGED us to study the scriptures in John 5:39 “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me” and in 2 Timothy 3:16 “ All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”.

7). We must constantly PRAY for the things we need in life (ESPECIALLY for the forgiveness of our sins)!

8). There are 7+ bible passages which state that baptism is NECESSARY for the “ceremonial” washing away of sins! [1 Peter 3:21, Galatians 3:27, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Romans 6:3-6, Acts 16: 31-33, Acts 8:35-38, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, Mark 1:4-5, Mark 28:19-20, etc.) **Note: Mark 3:13-17 and Mark 1:9-11, and John 1:29-33 all show how we are to have a FULL IMMERSION BAPTISM (in a river, bathtub, or swimming pool, etc), NOT A SPRINKLING!!!!!!)

9). Matthew 28:19 states: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”. In other words, Jesus Christ says we are to SPREAD and SHARE the gospel amongst ALL people and ALL nations! **We’re ALSO supposed to help others that are in need!** During the Great White Throne Judgement, Jesus Christ will judge each and every one of us (not only by our faith) but also by HOW WELL we abided in the bible and helped others in need! So if you see a homeless person somewhere, don’t ignore them!  

10). Matthew 24:13 states: But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”. In other words, Jesus Christ warned us in the bible that we would have/experience persecution in this world, reminding us that he himself suffered it, first. However, he promises that he will reward the overcomers! So we must spiritually endure and occupy ourselves until he comes to the Earth again!

Remember that everything of this Earth and on this Earth is ONLY TEMPORARY and that someday soon, the Lord God will create a NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH! Also please remember that as soon as the CURRENT heavens and Earth pass away, the ONLY thing that will matter is your spiritual relationship (or lack of one) with the Lord Jesus Christ! And your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ or lack of one, or lack of a GOOD one, will determine where you are placed to go, FOR ALL ETERNITY!

And the return of Jesus Christ to the Earth for his saints is IMMINENT! So I pray: if you’re not 100% ready with Jesus Christ today, then please get ready. Time is of the essence! We never know when we’re going to die and/or when Jesus Christ is gonna return for his true “church” (the saints). So we need to constantly pray that we will be ready!

11). It’s funny how modern day Christians tend to look at King David and Samuel and Jesus’s disciples with this sensationalized view, and hold them up on a pedestal, totally forgetting the fact that they all had sins and “faults”, just like you and I. Therefore, actually READING the bible and reading the FULL STORY on each disciple and each Old Testament prophet sort’ve helps put things in true perspective. Not ONE of them was perfect, save for Jesus Christ himself, who was born without sin. Then again, Jesus Christ is more than just a mere “prophet” of God, he’s the Alpha & Omega, the first and the last! The name above all other names! The only begotten Son of God! The True Vine! The Way, The Truth & the Life! The Everlasting God!

12). We must REPENT of our sins in order to have a new life in Jesus Christ! Because without repentance, there’s NO Salvation! For repentance is NECESSARY for Salvation! We must also forgive others who’ve hurt us! For Jesus said in the bible that if WE don’t forgive others that have hurt us or someone close to us, that WE ourselves won’t be forgiven since Jesus can’t let ANY sin into his heavenly kingdom! Holding a grudge against someone = Hate and Hate = Murder in our hearts, according to Jesus Christ Almighty! 

I pray that all souls that read this will either come to know Jesus Christ today or GET 100% ready with Jesus Christ today, if they already know him. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE!

I don’t know why but I’ve personally come across COUNTLESS numbers of Christian tracks, programs and ministries that ask for CONSTANT DONATIONS in the name of Jesus Christ!

And something about that just doesn’t sit right with me.

With so many FREE & wonderful bible study programs out there that are funded of their own accord, why do all these other “Christian” ministries out there feel the need to ask for money all the time? In fact, there’s been quite a number of cases most recently where Christian ministries were brought to light by the media over “financial fraud”.

But the truth is, the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation is FREE! For Jesus Christ NEVER once said in the bible, “baptize them in my name, then ask them for $20” or “have the inhabitants of the city of Bethlehem pay you $50, just to be able to hear my message!”

And quite frankly, I’ve listened to lots of Christian radio programming while driving to and from work or watched some Christian evangelist programming on TV from time to time. And most of these programs (specifically, the Christian radio programming that I listen to the most) have GREAT Christian messages about how we need to repent of our sins, develop a more closer spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ, etc.

But then, as soon as some of the programs are over, or sometimes right in the middle of them, there’s a short pause followed by constant proclamations of “and now you can order the whole CD set of this program with a generous donation of $25 or more” or “for your donation of any amount, we’ll send you such and such program” or some like thing and my heart just ACHES with sadness each and every time I hear something like that. For the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation is FREE. So why should people have to pay up the WAZOO or be FORCED to make a donation for such programs like “how to have a better prayer life”, etc? Because the truth is, ALL the questions about how to have a better prayer life, etc. can be found in the very pages of the bible, itself!

But don’t get me wrong, though. There ARE still many great FREE Christian resources out there. They are just few and far between and hard to find. But in fact, walk into just about ANY Christian bookstore today and (assuming it’s about the same everywhere and not just here in my local town), the prices are OUTRAGEOUS (using Jesus as a “cash cow”), an author’s picture oftentimes takes up the whole entire book cover (worshiping the creator instead of the creator/idolatry), not to mention there are things like “scripture candy” (pretty much milking it — the $$$ — for all it’s worth, something CLEARLY forbidden in the bible. Think about the time of  John 2:16 when it was said “And [Jesus Christ] said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise”. 

So when I see “disposable things” in a Christian bookstore like “scripture candy”, I am truly appalled for I feel as though they are taking it a bit too far and making the gospel a sort’ve “joke” because as soon as one eats the candy, they are “eating up” a piece of written scripture, sort’ve speak, and something about that just doesn’t sit right with me, though I can’t quite put my finger on it. And not only that but every single time I stepped foot inside the local Christian bookstore, not only did this weird creepy sense of foreboding come over me (can’t explain it — has this ever happened to anyone else or is it just me?) but they watched me like a hawk and tried to sell me things I clearly didn’t need (EXPENSIVE things!)

In fact, I almost always felt like I had been a character out of the Stephan King movie “Needful Things” every time I went in there (to the local Christian bookstore). And once more, they NEVER really talked about Jesus Christ or salvation or even asked how my day or my life was going. They were there to make $$$$, PERIOD! [And yes, I know that some people gotta make a living — that’s true — but do they REALLY need to charge $150-$200 for a brand new bible? That is just CRAZY!!!) So I stopped going there a long while ago for those express purposes. And how sad. And how my soul grieves.

It seems there is no longer a true/biblical Christian store here, anymore. And not only that but the people of my town are (sadly) seeming to become more and more “liberal” over time. This used to be a town where (it seemed to ME, atleast) that people actually CARED about God and his holy divine commands in the bible some 15 years ago. Today, in the year 2014, one would be hard-pressed to find a Christian in my town that even does so much as BELIEVES in the 100% accuracy of the bible, let alone follows it! 😦 

15 years ago, the New Age section of the local Hastings [and notice I said Hastings, I’m not talking about the same “Christian bookstore” up above] took up ONE small shelf while the Christianity section took up about 3 whole AISLES! TODAY in the year 2014, the New Age section pretty much takes up 1-3 whole AISLES while the Christian section only takes up half an aisle. And OF the things on the Christian shelf section, MOST of those things are what I call “liberal-leaned” literature. There’s TONS of NIVS, NKJV, ESV, NLT, etc. and my soul just GRIEVES, relentlessly.

Because I know full well that most of these “newer” bible translations are actually serving to lead MANY astray by changing/omitting hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of words from the original KJV text and as a result are more likely to be of the viewpoint “it’s OK to be gay” which is one of the most SINGLE, most damnable lies and heresies of the ENTIRE 21ST CENTURY (next to “once saved, always saved”, which I believe I discussed in a previous post on here). But I will discuss the former more in detail in my next post.

But in fact, I was mulling around an idea in my head the other day. Something called “The Gospel Project”. What I would do is publish various bible verses (such as John 3:16) on Vistaprint cards. And then, I would leave them in various unsuspecting places for people to see, or gather up a small pile of them in my hand on a very windy day and then throw them up in the air and let the wind do its magic since I know the Lord Jesus will let the wind blow the cards wherever he wills and allow them all to be viewed by whomever he wills. I also thought of self-publishing small little packets proving how Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and then anonymously distributing it to local Jewish centers in the area and/or possibly printing off another small packet firmly yet lovingly explaining why homosexual practitioners are “lost souls” that need to come back to God and that yes, homosexual relations are a sin, etc.

Basically, I’ve been trying to brainstorm of various ways that I can freely distribute the gospel and fulfilled bible prophecy to people OTHER than just through this blog! But I have to admit. In a nation and even a town of mostly “liberals”, I am somewhat afraid of how the gospel messages will be received. But, I must be strong and have faith in the Lord Jesus for it was said in Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible“.

And like I said up above, I know that all people gotta make a living, somehow. But when one is charging $150-$200 for bibles, you REALLY got to ask yourself what this world is coming to. Beware of bibles being sold for high prices, as the bible states it must be FREELY GIVEN! That’s exactly why I don’t necessarily agree with the concept of a “Christian bookstore” that’s set up like a business. A business is set up to make money, not save souls. Think how many more souls they could help save if they gave out free bibles. I’m sure they could help save a TON!

Not every lost soul in NEED of being saved has a free $200 floating around in their pockets to purchase a bible. Especially in TODAY’S economy where even some poor folks with PhD’s are now homeless due to losing their homes and jobs and in many cases, their own families (due to death/natural disasters) and very livelihoods. Now, a book in a Christian bookstore or Christian section OF a secular bookstore on how to get closer to God, okay fine, sell it for $15-$20 (a reasonable price). But the holy bible? The one thing that people actually NEED in their lives? There are many ways/solutions to give it out FREE or to sponsor FREE power point presentations/etc. on the gospel of Jesus Christ if one truly cares about all the poor, lost souls out there.

If Jesus Christ means something to you, then spread his gospel of salvation/forgiveness for sins but do it FREELY. Don’t charge a penny.
