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

Rather you’re a believer in Jesus Christ/Yeshua or not, ONE thing is certain……bible prophecy’s now happening in today’s world at BREAKNECK SPEED!

Don’t believe me? Here are just a FEW bible prophecies, complete with headlines:

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/signs-of-last-days-bible-prophecy-fulfilled/

The bible spoke of a time when the LAND would “mourn”, when human hearts would “wax cold”, when people would call good (in the “true biblical sense”) evil and evil (that WHICH the bible calls “evil”) good and also most specifically of a time when THE BEAST (i.e. Satan/Satan’s Geo-Political Frontman) would rise to power.

Now….For those of you not familiar with the bible, bible prophecy, AND/OR the book of Revelation in the New Testament, let me describe to you what’s gonna happen in the VERY near future:

There is chaos and “financial collapse” happening all over the globe. No-one can deny this. [Note: Argentina and Greece are just a PREVIEW of what is to come……even to DEVELOPED countries…] And someday soon, things are going to get bad…..really, really bad [financially and otherwise].

In fact, the bible hints that things will become SO BAD (financially), that ALL the countries of the world will likely have to elect or appoint a one world gov’t leader to “get a financial handle on it all”. And the way he will do this (the bible says it’s a he) is by developing a ONE WORLD CURRENCY, ONE WORLD RELIGION, AND ONE WORLD GOV’T.

“Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Wait there just a minute! All the religions of the world will NEVER AGREE to THAT”, some might say. But yet, the bible says they WILL. How? By deception on Satan’s part. See, Satan will be the one who GIVES this one world gov’t leader his power and the power to PERSUADE people.

And this man, this one world gov’t leader soon to arrive on the scene, is one and the same. He’ll try to make the Christians think he’s Jesus Christ, the Muslims think he’s Allah, the Buddhists to think he’s Maitreya or the 5th Buddha, the Jews to think he’s their “long-awaited Messiah” and the list goes on and on. 

Let me put this differently: The Christian Anti-Christ IS the “global end times messiah”/THE BEAST talked about in Revelation! And IS the “false messiah” of the world that all the world’s religions are waiting on! [Only, the world’s religions (as a whole) DON’T KNOW he’s a false messiah. By the time they DO figure it out, for many of them, it’ll be TOO LATE and their fates will already be sealed FOR ETERNITY! ;(]

Therefore, BECAUSE all the major world religions are awaiting a “messianic type figure”, it will be no problem at’tall FOR this one world gov’t leader to convince people that he IS the “messiah”. And we know from the bible that ALL people who’s names aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by this man/this false messianic figure who gets his power from Satan.

“What’s the Lamb’s Book of Life?”, some might ask. Answer: It is Jesus’s personal/spiritual record book of ALL those souls who believe in him, trust him, love him and OBEY HIM in any and ALL things! Those who believe and are baptized in the Holy Spirit of Truth! Those who have FULLY repented of their sins, etc. In other words, those that the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua is PROUD to call his servants! And he will profess those peoples’ names to the Heavenly Father and to the Holy Angels!

HOWEVER….Those whose names are NOT found written in the Lamb’s Book of Life WILL be deceived by THE BEAST/THE ANTICHRIST. He will have the power of PERSUASION. He will be very likeable and popular. He will seem to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. He’ll even perform FALSE MIRACLES, like bring fire down from heaven and bring life to an “image” of the Beast!

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed Revelation 13:13-15

 

And BECAUSE of that, He’ll have MANY, MANY, **MANY** people fooled, into thinking he’s “God”.

And AMIDST all the world chaous, and global financial meltdown, he’ll even “propose” a new “global financial system” that APPEARS to be “the answer to the world’s problems”. And “unsaved” people will fall for it, hook, line and sinker………..even many self-professed “Christians” themselves (YES, IT’S TRUE!)

Revelation 13:16-17 says: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”

Translation? This “mark” will be REQUIRED of ALL man, women and children, in order to be able to buy or sell. And WITHOUT this “mark” in their RIGHT HAND or FOREHEAD, they will NOT be able to buy or sell. And the book of Revelation says that ALL people who TAKE this “MARK” will be thrown into the LAKE OF FIRE…….FOR ETERNITY!

I can just picture it right now….”Christian” and/or “Messianic Jewish” families who’ve followed Jesus Christ their WHOLE LIVES…..only to start worrying at the VERY, VERY LAST MINUTE (when the GLOBAL FINANCIAL COLLAPSE happens) about how they’re going to feed their families and their young children….They really DON’T want to get the Mark (in their hearts) and they KNOW it’s wrong (eternally) but they figure Jesus would understand and forgive THEM for taking the Mark since they don’t truly worship the beast in their hearts & since they ONLY want to feed their children, nothing more (or so they “reason” with themselves, anyways)…….

They think there’s no way in HECK that Jesus would condemn THEM for such spiritual atrocities. But, they are VERY, VERY SADLY mistaken! For Jesus Christ will say to them on the Day of Judgement, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:23) OUCH!

Because in Jesus’s eyes, there’s NO EXCUSE for sin! NONE! It doesn’t matter WHY a person would choose to take the Mark of the Beast. Just THAT they did. It is a MAJOR sign of disobedience to God and a MAJOR slap in God’s face cause it’s like saying PERSONALLY to Jesus: “Jesus….? I don’t trust you to provide for me and my family during our financial time of need. Just like I don’t trust you to feed my young children. I NEED to take the Devil’s Mark, in order to be able to feed my children. You understand, don’t you?”

JESUS ISN’T HAVING IT!!!!! You take the Mark, you DIE….spiritually…….and there’s NO HOPE FOR YOU, IF YOU DO! Because it’s IN that very moment where you choose The Mark or choose to die FOR Christ instead that will ultimately determine if YOUR name gets written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I’m SERIOUS!

Revelation even speaks of AN ANGEL that tries to go around warning people on the Earth NOT to get the Mark of the Beast:

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a LOUD voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” (Revelation 14: 9-11)

And people, THE MARK is NOT about food/buying/selling, it’s about WORSHIP! So when a person gets the Mark of the Beast to feed their families, they’re receiving the Beast’s Mark of WORSHIP! Plus who’s to say that it won’t IMMEDIATELY change a person’s brain chemistry into worshiping the beast? Just sayin’.

So……what happens to the people that REFUSE to worship the beast and/or take his “Mark”, you might ask? Revelation 13:15 says they will be killed. So, in short, when it comes down to the wire, it’s either gonna be take the mark and be damned by Jesus Christ FOR ETERNITY. Or REFUSE the mark and DIE. There IS no other way, folks!

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” Revelation 13:15

But take heart. Jesus says in John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”

Jesus ALSO says in John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”

In other words, to DIE for Christ is GAIN but to DENY CHRIST in any way, shape or form is to BECOME CHRIST’S ETERNAL ENEMY!

Think about that for awhile. Let that sink in……

Also meditate on the FOLLOWING:

“Enter 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 strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and **FEW** there be that find it” – (Matthew 7:13-14)

Translation? VERY FEW people make it to “New Jerusalem” (talked about in Chapters 21-22 in Revelation in the New Testament) while MILLIONS UPON BILLIONS are CONDEMNED to the LAKE OF FIRE….FOR ETERNITY!

“Why so many?”, one may ask and the answer is THIS: Because VERY few people OBEY Christ! It’s not JUST about “believing” in Him but also OBEYING Him! For example, the Muslims believe in Christ but they don’t OBEY Him! For IF they DID truly “obey Him”, they would worship Jesus Christ AS the Messiah, and NOT as some “lowly messenger”. That’s just ONE example, there.

Another example might be a “Catholic” that REFUSED to stop worshiping “idols” (something that God/Jesus EXPRESSLY forbids!) And yet others might be all the “lukewarm” Christians out that never bothered to help those in need, etc., OR the Christians/Messianics in above theoretical example who took the “Mark”, in order to be able to feed their family, etc. Or those who’ve followed other religions, didn’t believe in Christ or just HATED Christ in general (i.e. Satanists, etc.)

But the ONE thing that ALL people who take the Mark have in common is that they (in true effect) ETERNALLY DENY CHRIST the VERY MOMENT they receive THE MARK OF THE BEAST. But it sure won’t LOOK like the Mark of The Beast, all menacing/ominous and stuff. It will probably LOOK innocent to most people. “Oh, it’s just a one world gov’t mark or symbol, no big”, most people will say. My guess is that The Mark will be some sort of symbol for “global unity” but that’s ALSO associated with the number 666, somehow. But again, who knows. 

And I can’t stress this ENOUGH, folks! Taking the Mark has NOTHING to do about buying or selling (though, if one wants to be able to buy or sell, they WILL have to take the Mark, no exceptions!) It has EVERYTHING to do with WORSHIP. The Beast wants WORSHIP. And if people won’t worship him willfully, he wants them to do it forcefully, by force, by ANY means necessary, really. 

Are YOU ready to give up your life for Christ? If someone told you tomorrow “take The Mark or DIE“, would YOU be willing to die? If not, why? Because folks, let me tell ya something. If YOU’RE not ready to DIE for Christ when the time comes, YOU need to pray to GET READY for when that time comes. Because that time’s gonna be here sooner than you or even I, know it. MARK MY WORDS!

SIN PRIDE: THE CANCER DESTROYING AMERICA & THE WORLD FROM WITHIN

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

–  2 Timothy 3: 1-5 [2nd book of Timothy, chapter 3, verses 1-5]

 

What is SIN? It is defined as: an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law

What is DIVINE LAW? Answer: a law that is believed to come directly from God. 

And what is PRIDE? Answer: a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

In short, “sin”, in and of itself, is the DELIBERATE OR UNINTENTIONAL violation of God’s law (the 10 commandments, etc.) Therefore, “sin pride” is TAKING PERSONAL PLEASURE IN SIN and being PROUD of it. (Do the words “Gay Pride” ring a bell, for example?)

The gay/transgender movement is the SPIRITUAL CANCER WHICH HAS TAKEN OVER THE LAND, HERE IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD. Look at any Gay Pride rally today (which should effectively be called SODOMY PRIDE, since what they’re advocating is SODOMY) and what do you SEE? The following:

  GAY PRIDE8 GAY PRIDE10 GAY PRIDE21 GAY PRIDE11

But ask many people today what “sin” IS or what the 10 commandments even ARE, many have never even HEARD of such things!

And what many people DON’T realize is that the whole entire Gay/Transgender Movement (in and of ITSELF) was DESIGNED by Satan and his demons in order to tear apart the concept of “traditional marriage” and the “traditional family”. It’s TRUE, folks……..Examine the following:

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

Plus we are also now witnessing the “Me Generation”. During the 90’s and early 2000’s, parents were instructed to fill their kids with self-esteem, etc. But NOW, it’s come as a SEVERE price. Today’s young generation now feels ENTITLED….(as a whole). It’s all about THEM…..What THEY want, what THEY feel, what THEY think……..it is no longer about God/Jesus Christ and God’s written Word/the bible….

The elite falsely got many Christian parents back in the 90’s and early to mid-00’s to think that it was better if they did NOT raise their child in the faith from the time they were very little, but instead “let the child decide, when they got older”. And look where that got us, folks! A new generation of young people that does NOT have the fear OR honor of God/Jesus Christ in them, etc.! Scary, indeed!

Not to mention that many of those parents in question had lukewarm faith to begin with, which is WHY they ended up not raising their child in the faith, from the time when they were little. And by the time many of these parents DO try to talk to their kids about the faith/salvation in Jesus Christ, it’s too late, the child, at 12-18, has already made their mind up that there is no God, etc.

So essentially, what was happening there, is that the child, WHEN they were very young, saw firsthand that their parent(s) were a “nominal Christian” and didn’t really consider Salvation in Jesus Christ that important enough to teach them. And maybe some of these children even WANTED to learn about Jesus Christ from their parents/pastors but society, at that time, was trying to dumb down the schools/education system and dumb down the faith……even trying to go so far as to proclaim teaching your young child about faith when they were little was somehow “child abuse” of sorts.

So many parents and pastors caved in and complied with “secular society’s” demands, many having lukewarm faith themselves. So many a child in question grew up thinking,Well, I guess faith in Jesus Christ isn’t that important. I guess all people will go to heaven, someday, so it’s not really a big deal and that was that. The child then grew up to have a SECULAR view of the world and of Christian religion. Who’s fault is that, folks?

Facebook, Youtube and Instagram (in general) are just LOADED with “boasting statements” of “I have such a wonderful husband”, “I have x amount of subscribers”, “my kid graduated at the top of his class”, etc. And lets be honest. Most of us don’t even stop to think about what it really means (behind the spiritual scenes)……and that is, ONE person in the human race, by making those types of boasting statements, are (intentionally or even unintentionally), pitting themselves ABOVE others……as if to be “seen” by them in an extraordinary way…..

In fact, my soul weeps bitter tears for those with daily vlogs/those who undertake dangerous “Youtube challenges”…..especially when they make verbal statements such as “you guys are awesome”, “you guys are what I’m doing this for”, etc. In short, these poor people are the living, breathing example of John 12:43 which states: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God”

But again, even if someone had a CHRISTIAN daily vlog, I’d have to wonder at their motivations for doing so. Because Jesus Christ tells us in Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven”

But IF ONLY these poor souls realized how much Jesus Christ loves them. For John 3:16 SPECIFICALLY states the following: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life“. And if they’d put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ, INSTEAD of in Youtube or mankind, they’d find that the eternal love of Jesus Christ FAR SURPASSES any form of “temporal love” or appreciation given by man/mankind. For though those many subscribers help them rake in the $$$ and feel “valued”, those subscribers can NOT save that person’s soul from hell. ONLY Jesus Christ can do THAT….

Which brings me to my next point. The people of today are TOTALLY NARCISSISTIC (as a whole). They don’t CARE about the “sin(s)” in their life……There’s no sense of GUILT or SHAME, anymore……People are even OPENLY going to adultery sites these days, such as Ashley Madison, etc. Many young people today are bragging about how “drunk” they can get or how many people they’ve “layed”, or what hard-core drugs they can do, etc. People (as a whole) don’t seem to care about WHAT they do or WHO they hurt, in the process.

In fact, the following three articles HIGHLIGHT this point:

===========

(Plus, some people don’t even know what “sin” IS, sadly)….but in fact, the ones that KNOW they’re sinning against God/Jesus Christ? They’re PROUD of it……They FLAUNT IT…….they see NOTHING wrong with it and worse still, they JUSTIFY it, while also thinking that they’re ENTITLED to it…….yes, ENTITLED…….examine any “gay pride rally”, like I said or any of the following headlines down below: (Headlines that shock and horrify the “biblical mind”)

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/brother-and-sister-reveal-incestuous-relationship-live-on-spanish-tv-a6985356.html

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

What REALLY gets me about the news articles up above is THE DEGREE that the people in them JUSTIFY their actions and feel ENTITLED to them. Oh, we can’t help it, therefore, we should be able to INDULGE in one another/in our “sin” of incest! THE SIX PEOPLE ABOVE HAVE NO SHAME!!!! And the “secular world/society” is saying, Why SHOULD they have any shame about their deeds? What they are doing is RIGHT and JUST, in the world’s eyes!”

Reminds me of the passage in Isaiah 5:20-25 which states: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitterWoe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of IsraelTherefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still”

 

And remember, it’s a sign of the times that we’re living in the LAST DAYS, when people start calling good (i.e. the 10 commandments/God/the bible) “evil” and evil (i.e. sodomy/lust/incest/murder) “good”.

In fact, the devil’s even got a new buzzword for what society is now slowly starting to deem “justified incest”: G.S.A. (which stands for Genetic Sexual Attraction). Because the devil wants YOU, the reader, and EVERY human out there, to come to the mindset of, Oh….they can’t really help it…..it’s not like they were raised that way……oh…….I guess technically that they should be able to do this then, since they can’t help it“. [CAN’T HELP IT? REALLY??? ARE YOU SERIOUS? IS SOMEBODY POINTING A GUN TO THEIR HEAD, SAYING “PARTAKE YOURSELVES **NOW** IN INCEST OR ELSE?”] What comes NEXT, folks? Will people also soon start justifying cases such as the following?

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/man-shares-details-sexual-relationship-dolphin-article-1.1825434

They’ve ALREADY started justifying BIOLOGICAL MEN going into WOMEN’S RESTROOMS (Target, Obama administration) and vice versa. Plus I won’t even mention about the NO GENDER/GENDER-FLUID MOVEMENT, as most biblically-minded people realize that it’s a DIRECT ATTACK on God Almighty/the bible/the “traditional family”.

Folks, it’s not just SIN that’s taken over our nation here in America (and across the world) but rather, the PRIDE of sin. And in God’s Almighty eyes, the PRIDE of sin is practically worse than the sin ITSELF. Because to do something bad is ONE thing. But to do something bad and to FEEL GOOD/JUSTIFIED/ENTITLED about it? That’s a whole other thing, altogether.

Let us think back on the story of Cain and Abel in Genesis. And think about Cain’s “haughty” response to Almighty God in Genesis 4:9 “And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? Notice the PRIDE and the ARROGANCE in such a statement! Think how much DIFFERENTLY it would’ve been for Cain if he had fallen on his knees before the Lord and HUMBLY ADMITTED HIS SIN! Things might’ve played out differently, then.

Obama once remarked in one of his speeches that “we are no longer just a Christian nation”, which would imply “we are no longer a Christian nation”. In other words, he was stating that we are now a “multi-faith nation”. Think about those words for a bit. Think about the LONG-TERM spiritual implications, there. What he’s REALLY saying, behind the scenes, is that this great American nation, NO LONGER honors God/Jesus Christ the way it once did. That should send shivers down the spine of EVERY God-fearing American in this country (and even around the world!)

For NOW, we (as a nation) and even as a WORLD, have become likened unto CAIN, who sheepily replied onto Almighty God, I know not, am I my brother’s keeper? At ONE time, we were a God-fearing, God-honoring “ABEL”. And the Lord was pleased and BLESSED this nation. But now that SIN and more specifically, the PRIDE OF SIN, has overtaken this country and this world, we are now likened onto a “CAIN”. And the Lord’s Wrath was upon Cain. And so NOW, the Lord’s Wrath is upon America (and the world)…..ofcourse, it’s BEEN on America (and the world) for QUITE SOME TIME NOW and will soon reach a BOILING POINT (assuming it hasn’t, already!)

SATANIC KALI IN NY RAINBOW COLORS ON WHITE HOUSE, END IS NEAR1

But again, humans are prideful by nature. We WANT to feel good about ourselves, our jobs, our talents, our families, etc. We don’t WANT to believe that a holy, righteous God (Jesus Christ) would have the audacity to send US to hell over OUR sins against Him and against one another. However, when a person says to themselves MY Jesus would NEVER send a normal, everyday person to Hell, what they’re really doing is creating a FALSE JESUS THAT THEY’RE COMFORTABLE WITH. And that “false Jesus” is NOT biblical, and provides NO SALVATION. NONE.

Hebrews 12:29 states: “For our God IS a consuming fire”. 

So what does that MEAN, some might ask? It means that Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible) is HOLY. He has the power of the universe at his fingertips. And the FIRES OF HELL speak to HIS righteous holyness. Because in HIS righteous judgement, he will send ALL those whose names aren’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life to the LAKE OF FIRE. However, a person that dies between now and then (whose name isn’t written in the Lamb’s Book of Life) will open up their eyes and discover their soul in HELL. But the fires of hell are NOT eternal…….Revelation 20:14 states: “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death”.

Translation? The fires of hell will merge INTO the LAKE OF FIRE. And the Archangel Michael once informed me (during a near-suicide attempt at age 19-21) that the fires of hell are about 10,000 times hotter than the flame from a small lighter and that the LAKE OF FIRE is 100,000,000 times hotter than the fires of hell. Therefore, using spiritual and deductive reasoning, we can then know that the LAKE OF FIRE is about 1,000,000,000,000 times hotter than the flame of a small lighter. And lets face it…….the flame from a small lighter (if you hold your hand up to it) is INTENSE….So imagining something that’s a TRILLION times hotter than that, while also imagining the following two passages? I can’t even………

Matthew 13: 41-42 “The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth

Revelation 14:11 “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up FOR EVER AND EVER: and they have NO REST day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name

This November should be a very interesting “election”, INDEED……if they even HAVE “the election”, that is. I can only imagine HOW MUCH worse it’s gonna get and HOW MUCH CLOSER JESUS’S 2ND ARRIVAL TO THE EARTH REALLY *IS*!

And with Jesus’s soon 2nd arrival on the Earth again being that much closer, so is the ANTICHRIST’S ARRIVAL on Earth (in fact, he’s probably already here!) The book of Revelation gives some VERY dire warnings in Revelation 13: 16-17:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”

And OF these individuals that take/took The Mark, it is said the following, in Revelation 14:11….

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

So in conclusion, God’s WRATH is upon America & upon THE WORLD! And bad things are gonna happen, as a result……REALLY, REALLY BAD THINGS……(Terrorism, executions, famine, pestilences, FAILING ECONOMIES/FAILING WORLD ECONOMY, the stripping of free speech ALTOGETHER, earthquakes/other natural disasters, job firings, persecution, etc.) And out of the MIDST of those bad things, a one world global leader’s gonna arrive on the global stage. And he’s gonna “appear’ to be the answer to EVERYONE’S PROBLEMS!

EVERY single person that DOES NOT place their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ Almighty WILL be deceived by this global leader. He might even look like Jesus, sound like Jesus and even CALL himself Jesus, but he will NOT, I repeat….will NOT BE the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ from the bible! And ALL the world’s inhabitants that aren’t of Jesus Christ WILL think this man is the Messiah:

1). Muslims are awaiting the 12th Iman or the Madhi 

2). Jews (as a whole) are awaiting what THEY think will be their “Messiah” and don’t realize that Jesus Christ WAS/IS their prophesied Messiah

3). Buddhists are awaiting the 5th Buddha

4). Hindus are awaiting reincarnation of Kali/Shiva?

5). Christians are awaiting the Anti-Christ

Do you see now where I’m going with this, folks? ALL non-biblical Christians and other religions and people of NO RELIGION **will** be deceived by this man. And he **will** require ALL inhabitants of the Earth, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead, in order to be able to buy or sell. And whomever does NOT take this mark WILL be imprisoned/killed and/or beheaded. 

But let me reassure you: to die for Christ is GAIN…but to live for the Devil and the Mark of the Beast is ETERNAL DEATH IN THE LAKE OF FIRE…….So what if you go hungry or starve to death, while refusing the mark of the beast……..the Lord Jesus Christ shall SUPERNATURALLY SUSTAIN YOU, in mind, heart, body and spirit, if you continue to cry out to him, pray to him, obey him and trust him with ALL YOUR HEART!

And besides……buying food on the Anti-Christ’s “dime”? I wouldn’t recommend it. Cause who knows what types of chemicals, etc. will be in the Anti-Christ’s food. Even right now with all this “genetically-modified food” on the market, it’s really making me start to wonder. Because isn’t messing with the DNA of ANYTHING (be it an animal or a grain of corn) AGAINST God’s will? Think about it, folks! Plus it’s also funny that research is now showing that GMO’s cause cancer. Big surprise. We now live in a world where they (the elite) place $$$$ over consumer safety. Welcome to the world of the End Times, folks. And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, MARK MY WORDS! 

Therefore, you got to make a decision. Are you going to live for Jesus Christ and be made fun of, ridiculed, possibly fired from your job/persecuted/killed? OR are you going to “cave” to secular society’s demands that you feel PRIDE over your “sin(s)” and NOT feel any guilt or shame over them, thus, joining the MILLIONS of people who will soon be taking the Mark of the Beast, in order to feed themselves and their families (thus, DAMNING THEIR SOULS FOR ETERNITY?) The choice is up to YOU, folks! But don’t say I didn’t warn you! 

HERE…..in the link down below, a guy by the name of David J. Stewart goes into MUCH FURTHER DETAIL than I have and has written a MOST EXCELLENT ARTICLE on today’s topic of the PRIDE OF SIN/SPIRITUAL CANCER:

http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/terminal_cancer.htm

“Lord, please give all your people strength to endure in these End Times. Please sustain them physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Please keep them at ANY costs from taking the Mark of the Beast, ESPECIALLY parents with small children. Please protect them, guide them and watch over them, at ALL times. And most importantly, please give them the strength & endurance to suffer whatever persecution may befall them, in whatever form it may take, rather verbal or physical. Please bless them and keep them for all eternity. In Jesus’s name, Amen”. 

 

 

 

 

27+ Bible Passages Condemn Homo/Bi/Trans Sexuality

MANY a people out there today falsely ASSUME the following:

  1. Homosexuality was NOT even “talked about” in the New Testament
  2. Homosexuality was NOT condemned by Jesus Christ at all
  3. Homosexuality was only condemned in the OLD TESTAMENT
  4. Certain people today are “born gay”
  5. Jesus FULLY accepts the practice of active bi/homo behavior and same-sex marriage
  6. Jesus Christ won’t send “active” gay/bi people to eternal condemnation
  7. Jesus Christ fully accepts “active trans people” (meaning, he’s A-Ok with men dressing as women, and women dressing as men, etc.)
  8. Homosexuality is only barely mentioned in 6 passages, that’s IT……

However, what many, many, MANY people don’t realize is that Homo/Bi “relations” AND trans/cross-dressing is CONDEMNED in both the Old AND New Testaments!!!!!!! In fact, there’s over 27+ PASSAGES condemning homo/bi/trans “activity” as SIN!

OLD TESTAMENT:

Condemnation of Homosexuality:  

  • Leviticus 5:3
  • Leviticus 18:22 and 24-30
  • Leviticus 20:13
  • Genesis 9: 20-24
  • Genesis 18:20 
  • Genesis 19: 4-13 (key verse **Genesis 19:5**)
  • Judges 19: 22-24
  • 1 Kings 14:22-24
  • 1 Kings 15:11-13
  • 1 Kings 22:46
  • 2 Kings 23: 4-7 (key verse **2 Kings 23:7**)
  • Ezekiel 16:50
  • Daniel 11:37

Condemnation of Transgenderism/Cross-Dressing:

  • Deuteronomy 22:5 (OLD Testament) 
  • Genesis 1:27 (OLD Testament)
  • Deuteronomy 23:17 (OLD Testament)
  • Psalms 139: 13-14 (OLD Testament)
  • Romans 1: 24-27 (NEW Testament)
  • 1 Corinthians 6: 8-10 (NEW Testament)

NEW TESTAMENT:

  • Romans 1: 18-32
  • 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
  • 1 Timothy 1: 8-11
  • Jude 1: 4, 7 & 19
  • Matthew 19: 1-8
  • Galatians 5:19
  • Ephesians 5: 3-7
  • Colossians 3: 5-7
  • Titus 1:16
  • Revelation 21:27

In fact, EVEN Jesus Christ HIMSELF talked about the condemnation of homosexuality in Matthew 19:4-6 in the NEW TESTAMENT when he stated the following:

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder“.

Well, guess what folks, on June 26th, 2015, that’s EXACTLY what the U.S. Supreme Court DID when they decided to PUT ASUNDER (that means, TAKE APART UN-NATURALLY) what the Lord Jesus had put together NATURALLY in Genesis 1:27 in the OLD TESTAMENT [“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”].

Which brings me to my next point: NATURALLY/BIOLOGICALLY-BORN MALES AND FEMALES ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD! Therefore, anything, and I do mean ANYTHING that deviates from this standard image of the male and female created for NATURAL/TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE and where NATURAL procreation occurs is NOT OF GOD! Repeat: Is NOT of God! And BECAUSE two men and two women can NOT have BIOLOGICALLY NATURAL sex or conceive children NATURALLY, they’re forced to have UN-NATURAL SEX, which the bible calls SODOMY!

In fact, the word used in the bible for “homosexual” in both the Old AND New Testaments is a “sodomite”. A sodomite is someone who commits “sodomy” by having sex “outside a traditional marriage context”. But to be fair, ANY person having sex outside of marriage (even if it’s “extra marital sex”) is committing the sin of “Sodomy”. Therefore, straight people can be “guilty” of the sin of “sodomy” AS WELL, if they have sex OUTSIDE of a traditional marriage setting.

And what ALOT of people don’t know is THAT the Gay/Trans Movement is “Satanically-induced” and brought on by Satan and his demons! Not to mention that the gay/trans activists themselves are under SEVERE DEMONIC OPPRESSION (spiritually, mentally and physically speaking!) I’M SERIOUS! Have you EVER seen a PRO-BIBLICAL-JESUS CHRIST display — one that is NOT mocking the God of the bible in ANY type of way –from the LGBT people THEMSELVES at a “gay pride rally?” My guess is no! But what you HAVE probably seen is things like THIS:

GAY PRIDE11 GAY PRIDE8 DEVIL HORNS, GAY PRIDE6 GAY PRIDE23

We’re living in the End Times, folks! Satan’s ANGRY and knows his time is short. Therefore, he’s trying to do WHATEVER HE CAN to DESTROY and OBLITERATE what was made in GOD’S IMAGE, that is to say, NATURALLY-BORN males and females, in a TRADITIONAL marriage, with a TRADITIONAL FAMILY! That’s what the Gay Movement, Feminist Movement, Abortion Movement and Transgender Movements are ALL ABOUT, FOLKS! Wake up, people!

Here’s a video which showcases the 27+ verses concerning homosexuality/cross-dressing/etc.:

In fact, even a couple of some VERY prominent gay activists THEMSELVES admitted the following:

1). Prominent gay male activist in UK admits there is “no gay gene”:

2). Female gay activist admits that “gay marriage” is a LIE that is being used to DESTROY TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE/FAMILY

Strongholds: What’s YOURS?

I’ve most recently come across a most powerful Christian sermon about strongholds.

“Ah”, I thought. “I know what a stronghold is……it’s this dire need to hold onto something……some sin or ‘indulgence’ that a Christian person refuses to give up in their lives”.

Well, that’s only PART of the definition……A stronghold is defined as “a place that has been fortified so as to protect it against attack”. However, there can be GOOD strongholds or BAD strongholds, depending. Therefore, which one do YOU have?

castle STRONGHOLD

Let us examine. Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Translation? Nobody’s perfect. Which means we ALL have our “strongholds” in our lives……those things/sin(s)/people which we’re refusing to give up. And most of the time, we don’t even REALIZE it’s a “stronghold” to begin with!

Examples?

  • A love of food or certain kinds of food (especially when it gets to the point of obsession)
  • A relationship that doesn’t honor Yeshua/Jesus (e.g., premarital sex, abuse, one person’s not a believer in Jesus, etc.)
  • A love of money or material things
  • An obsession with sports, music, entertainment, social media, celeb gossip
  • A holding on to hurt, resentment, anger and pain
  • An obsession with a person, place or thing
  • A REFUSAL to lay all your hopes, fears, dreams, resentment, anger, pain, and hate at Jesus’s feet (spiritually speaking)
  • A REFUSAL to acknowledge there’s any sort of “problem” in our lives
  • A REFUSAL to seek help for any and all “problems” in our lives
  • A love of drugs or alcohol
  • A love of lust and/or partying
  • A REFUSAL to do the Lord’s will
  • A REFUSAL to seek reconciliation with someone we’ve wronged or who has wronged US
  • A REFUSAL to trust or believe in God/Jesus Christ and/or a REFUSAL to believe in HIS holy words in the bible
  • The need for everyone’s approval
  • ETC.

And when it comes to GOOD STRONGHOLDS, there is ONLY ONE good stronghold I can think of and that is 100% TRUST IN ALMIGHTY YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST, THE NAME ABOVE ALL OTHER NAMES!

Ofcourse, THAT type of faith is hard to come by. It doesn’t come easy and it sure as HECK doesn’t come overnight. It’s a PROCESS, people. It is a LEARNED faith, bit by bit and little by little.

Do you think Abraham [in the Old Testament] was BORN with the type of faith he had? Granted, there IS such a thing as predestiny, I believe, BUT…….Abraham likely didn’t, for theoretical example, yell up at the sky at 2 years old: “yes Lord, I’ll leave for the promised land TOMORROW!” Obviously, Abraham had to be shaped and molded INTO that faith, INTO that “righteous stronghold” of the Almighty God!

For EVEN Abraham himself apparently had some “unrighteous strongholds”, as we read in Genesis 12 that when there was a famine in the land, Abraham had “unrighteous doubt”/”fear” in his heart when he came near to the land of Egypt with his wife Sarai. Why? Because his wife Sarai was “stunningly beautiful” and Abraham feared that once the Egyptians saw how beautiful Sarai was, that they’d kill him to get to HER. So Abraham told Sarai to tell the Egyptians that she was his “sister”!

And sure enough, as it turned out, the Egyptians were overly generous to Abraham on the count of Sarai. HOWEVER, when the Lord plagued Pharaoh’s household and servants because of Sarai, that’s when Pharaoh realized that he had been “duped” by Abraham and told Abraham to take his wife Sarai and immediately depart Egypt!

This is just ONE example of when an Old Testament prophet displayed an “unrighteous stronghold”. Another example is Moses. When the Lord God told Moses to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go, he was sore afraid. He made all sorts of “excuses”:

“And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The Lord hath not appeared unto thee” – Exodus 4:1

“And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue” – Exodus 4:10

 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send” – Exodus 4:13

Think how YOU would feel if you were needing someone to do something and they kept protesting and making excuses! Pretty irritated, right? So it was with God when Moses kept making excuses (poor Moses, though! That must have been a very hard thing for him to do – face Pharaoh and the people with his implied *speech impediment*! But still……) 

Moses’s excuses/justifications and Abraham’s lack of faith when it came to traveling with his “stunningly beautiful” wife can serve as a message to us ALL. What type of “strongholds” do YOU have (if any) and how do YOU deal with them?

Not sure if this will help anyone out here but here it goes. These are the types of “strongholds” that I myself have been silently suffering from in 2015, not even fully realizing that they WERE “strongholds”, to begin with…..UNTIL the Lord opened up my eyes:

  • Food (specifically, certain types of food in the middle of the day that I would “think” about buying the next day, then would buy in bulk the next day, and even then, that STILL wasn’t good enough. I would browse online menus from several different places, trying to decide what food I should buy each time. My cabinets and my refrigerator also became full of food oftentimes, and half the time, a part of the stuff would even go uneaten, until I was forced to throw them out. CRAZY, huh?)
  • I seemed to have left my “first love” (spiritually), Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ [Revelation 2:4]
  • I had somewhat acted out in anger towards certain things at work without stopping to think rationally first about the situation(s)
  • I kept trying to tell myself in the back of my mind that that I didn’t really need to read the bible anymore, since I “already knew what’s in there”, while advising others to read theirs all the time (OUCH!)
  • I REFUSED to do all the things the Lord told me to do/say in the year 2015, making excuses
  • I struggled (and still struggle, somewhat) to keep my apartment clean (& organized)
  • I seemed to have a “why me?” attitude many times
  • I was seemingly overcome with fear and partial lack of faith (as in, I seemed to be struggling with the constant thought that maybe I wasn’t doing enough for God’s Kingdom, maybe the Lord wouldn’t consider me righteous enough to enter into the gates someday, etc.)
  • I obsessed over this guy at work that I couldn’t have (Never dated the guy or anything, just obsessed over him, mostly)
  • ETC.

Now, the POINT I wanted to make is that those “admissions” (to ourselves, to God and to others) are very, very personal and hard to make. But ONCE we make them, we’re one step closer to knocking down those castle walls of “unrighteous strongholds”.

But how do I develop a RIGHTEOUS STRONGHOLD?“, one might ask. Well, first we have to have FAITH. How do we develop faith? The bible says in Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. Translation? Faith comes by hearing the written Word of God in the bible.

“But what about people that read the bible and STILL don’t believe?”, some might ask. My question: why NOT believe? For it takes FAR more faith to believe everything came from nothing than to believe that everything came from something (an Almighty Creator), don’t you think?

[For if you’re right and I’m wrong, I’ve lost nothing. But if I AM right, and YOU’RE wrong, you will have lost EVERYTHING, including your OWN SOUL! Is that an eternal chance you’d be willing to take, folks? I pray not!]

There’s many passages in the bible I like to read when I feel as though my faith is “weak” and they are the following:

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word” – Matthew 28: 5-8

HE IS RISEN!

And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day” – Matthew 28: 12-15

[[[[THE “JEWISH COUNCIL” PAYED THE ROMAN SOLDIERS ***LARGE SUMS OF MONEY*** TO LIE AND SAY THAT JESUS’S DISCIPLES STOLE HIS BODY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! However, that brings up several questions:

  1. How did they roll away the heavy stone without anyone noticing?
  2. Where is the body? All they’d have to do is find a body and no problem.
  3. Why would Jesus’s disciples knowingly offer themselves up for torchure and execution/death for something they knew was a lie? Obviously, Jesus’s disciples believed the angel of the Lord with all their hearts, souls and might and that he was resurrected! Cause nobody on the Earth that I know of would be willing to be torchured and die for a LIE, right?
  4. If Jesus didn’t truly resurrect, he would’ve been exposed as a fraud and “Christianity”/”Messianic Judaism” would’ve completely died within a day or two. But BECAUSE he resurrected and there were SEVERAL eyewitnesses to the fact (Christian AND non-Christian alike), Jesus’s resurrection has been proven as anything BUT a lie!]]]]

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” – Jeremiah 32:27

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” – Mathew 19:26

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” – Mark 11: 22-24

“Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour” – Matthew 15:28

GOD PARTING THE RED SEA:

And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians. 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore” – [Exodus 14: 21-30 in Old Testament]

THE LIONS DEN:

Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee. And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel. Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him. Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions? 

Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Then was the king exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his GodAnd the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den. 

Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you. I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian” – [Daniel 6: 16-28 in Old Testament] 

THE FIERY FURNACE:

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

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

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up’. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flames of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. 

Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said,Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.” [Daniel 3: 8-30 in the Old Testament] 

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” – John 16:33

———————

And that’s just a very small “sliver” of verses I am personally encouraged by. There’s SO many more, but for the sake of time and space, I must limit it to those few. But hopefully you will start to recognize and get rid of any unrighteous strongholds in your life. And as evidenced up above, even I myself (of all people) am not immune from having unrighteous strongholds from time to time.

Romans 3:23 expressedly states that we’re all sinners, who’ve fallen short of the glory of God! But when Almighty Yeshua/Jesus died on the cross for us, he died on the cross so that WE can be forgiven of our sins. But we have to ASK for that forgiveness and REPENT of sins in order to fully RECEIVE that forgiveness, folks! Jesus doesn’t extend his forgiveness to people who don’t want it. In other words, Jesus doesn’t FORCE salvation upon ANYONE…….he only graciously gives salvation to those who TRULY seek it. 

But in fact, imagine lava flowing down from a volcano. Imagine how HOT it is……visually focus on the mental imagery of the “lake of fire” pouring down out of the volcano. And then imagine being thrown alive into such a place……FOR ETERNITY! THAT is what Jesus died on the cross to protect us from, folks! (God’s Eternal Judgement). Who in their right mind, after knowing the FULL realities of hell and/or lake of fire would want to go there? Honestly? It boggles the mind, folks! 

On the other hand, read Revelation in the New Testament, chapters 21 and 22 to get a FULL PICTURE of what living in “God’s Paradise” is like. Who in their right mind, after reading that BEAUTIFULLY, HEAVENLY description wouldn’t want to go there? It boggles the mind, folks! It boggles the mind! And never ceases to amaze me! 

I oftentimes pray for my family, my coworkers and all my blog readers. But it’s very rare that I ask others to pray for ME. I guess it’s a pride thing. It’s hard for me to ask for help and to ADMIT to Almighty God and to others what my “unrighteous strongholds” are. But now that I HAVE admitted them to Yeshua/Jesus AND to you, please pray for me, folks! Please pray in the name of the Lord that I will be able to overcome the unrighteous strongholds that tried to take me down in 2015 and are still attempting to grab ahold of my spiritual ankle (sort’ve speak) in 2016! I need your prayers!

Thanks so much for reading and again, may Almighty Yeshua/Jesus bless you ALL in these last days! 😉 

 

 

 

 

URGENT END-TIMES MESSAGE: GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICA & “THE CHURCH” (AS A WHOLE):

The ONLY reason that evil’s been able to PROLIFERATE in this country (the U.S.) and the WORLD today is DUE to the “lack of action” of the “church”. Let me explain:

The VERY first mistake of all Christian churches (at their onset) was to incorporate a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sun-day) and “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Year’s, Halloween, etc.) into the church. This is what originally STARTED the “Great Apostasy” within the Lord’s people. And the SECOND mistake of all Christian churches was to apply for “tax-exempt status”, thus, allowing the STATE to become their head, instead of having JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY as their head (& chief cornerstone). And the THIRD mistake of the “churches” has been giving a “thumbs up” to things that are clearly FORBIDDEN in the bible (abortion, divorce, sodomy/homosexual lust, materialism, etc.)

Pretty much 97% of ALL Christian churches since the time of 325A.D. at the Council of Nicea are APOSTATE [though a VERY SMALL percentage — perhaps 3% or so — are still TRUE to the BIBLICAL Judeo-Christian gospel of Jesus Christ!] So then is it REALLY any surprise then that Christian “churches” TODAY (as a whole) are a FAR, FAR cry from what they were during the time of Jesus? And is it really any surprise with what rate of speed the “churches” (as a whole) have openly accepted things that are CLEARLY CONDEMNED in the bible?

Today, in the year 2015, the “church” (as a whole) seems to be “bowing down” to CULTURE and to MAN, rather than to God/Jesus Christ Almighty! For example, the “churches” of today accepting “openly sexual clergy members” and “GAY MARRIAGE WITHIN THE CHURCH: THE **ULTIMATE ABOMINATION?** That’s just the icing on the cake, as far as apostasy goes. What’s next? Will churches also soon “legitimize” incest, polygamy/commune marriages, pedophilia, prostitution, etc? Where does it all end? For if “sodomy” is okay, what OTHER sins are “okay”? (Do you see where I’m going with this, people?)

And then people have the audacity to turn around and wonder WHY the world is “so evil”, today! It’s because “the churches”, and people in general (as a whole) have turned their back on GOD/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY! And we know from the pages of Holy Writ that whenever a nation (as a whole) “forgets God”, he sort’ve leaves them to their own devices for awhile so people (as a whole) OF that nation can come to know what a world without Him is like:

He does this part out of anger/grief over their blatant sin of defying Him & part out of Tough Love, in order to try to draw people and/or a nation (and even specifically the world) back TO Him! That’s why there’s been such “brutal attacks” in the NAME of Islam, lately, for example……the Lord Jesus of the bible is SHOWING us first-hand what the long-term CONSEQUENCES are of following or “enabling” a false religious system like Islam, Roman Catholicism, etc. You have Islamic ISIS members beheading Christians in Middle East, etc., and then you a SLEW of child-molesting Roman Catholic priests.

But in fact, I’ve even heard a horrifying case of some Hindus BURNING 2 CHRISTIANS **ALIVE** IN AN OVEN – A WELDING-TYPE OVEN, much like the Nazis did! (ISIS must be proud!) And see, it’s one thing to not agree with a “religion” but you when you have to resort to DEATH & DESTRUCTION to get your point across? That’s a fairly good indicator that you don’t follow the true God of the bible but instead, follow a FALSE GOD, A **CREATED BEING**, which is SATAN!

The God of the bible is the one and only TRUE GOD — for he created everything & EVERYONE in the universe, INCLUDING the angels! But Satan is NOT god of the universe! He is merely a CREATED BEING with only LIMITED POWER! So why worship a being with LIMITED POWER (SATAN/ALLAH/**PAGANINZED ROMAN CATHOLIC JESUS**) when you can worship the Almighty God/BIBLICAL JESUS CHRIST of the bible that has INFINITE/EVERLASTING POWER and that can ETERNALLY SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SINS?

Islam teaches that one doesn’t know for 100% sure if they will enter “Eternal Paradise” or not; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY gives the true follower of Jesus Christ Almighty the 100% ASSURANCE of Salvation and “Eternal Life”. Roman Catholicism teaches that “good works” will save a person; BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY in the bible records: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” [Ephesians 2:8-9]

 Notice how BOTH of those religious systems MOCK the holy bible by introducing FALSE/UNBIBLICAL “doctrines” such “Jesus was NOT the son of God” [Islam] or that the VIRGIN MARY was IMMACULATELY CONCEIVED [Roman Catholicism] or that Genesis is not true [Roman Catholicism].  

But that brings me to my next point: If morality is subjective, WHO gets to decide what’s “sin” and what’s not? If there’s NO general consensus, that would just be chaos and disorder. But Jesus is NOT a God of chaos & disorder, he is a True, Eternal God that’s full of organization & divine order. If our planet, the Earth, was shifted just a few degrees off its axis, life on Earth would NOT be possible. And contrary to what some “scientists” might believe, our universe is not “chaotic”, it’s neatly organized and ordered.  

There is a REASON he placed certain stars and planets where he did, for example. Just like there is a REASON he created his divine “moral code”. Our laws are actually BASED on God’s laws/the 10 commandments. Without God’s laws in place, there WOULD be no morality. And to say one can have morality without God/Jesus Christ’s REDUNDANT since, like I said, who would create the “laws” of mortality in a “subjective morality” and how would such “subjective morality laws” be enforced?

The answer is, subjective mortality can NOT be enforced because it’s well, subjective. For example, one person might think it’s an utter sin to kill another person for insurance money while another may not. So who gets to be “right”, in the subjective morality model? If each man/woman/child on this Earth had a “subjective morality model” and was only for themselves, humans on the Earth wouldn’t last too long, now, would they? We all would’ve killed each other off by now……because hey….with no global human rights laws and no murder laws because “morality is subjective”, what would stop people from doing so, in that case?

Answer: the ONLY way to have “order” is to have a “moral code”, and the only way to have a moral code is to have one set in stone. And God literally set his 10 commandments in stone. And later on, The Sermon on the Mount went much deeper and talked about THE INTENTION of each of the 10 commandments. Therefore, the Sermon on the Mount actually EXPANDED on the 10 commandments, so those Christians out there that try to claim that the 10 commandments were done away with are SADLY MISINFORMED!    

But anyways, the church (as a whole) was SILENT when it came to the issues of divorce, abortion, adultery, idolatry, materialism, sodomy/gay relationships, gay marriage, etc. And IN doing so, it just gave the dark side the fuel they needed to start their DEPRAVED FIRE over mankind (and the church as a whole). In fact, in today’s world, evil seems to be “winning”. Why is that, do you think?

Because most certainly, if “the church” (as a whole) had STOOD ITS GROUND on those issues, I can guarantee there wouldn’t be 1/10th as much evil as we see in the world TODAY! In fact, the dark side (as a whole) would be forced to live in the closet, as if THEY were the “religious minority”. But sadly, in the year 2015, those living on the Dark Side of forces seem to be in the “spiritual majority”, while the rate of BIBLICAL-ROOTS CHRISTIANS (those who take the bible, End Times prophecies, the Lord’s *7th-Day Saturday Sabbath* AND the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts/Holidays SERIOUSLY) seems to be dwindling. My, how far this country and this world, has fallen! ;(

Yet, all throughout the bible, God was much more harsh with his OWN people, as a whole (when they most seriously “acted up”) than with foreign peoples. In fact, His Wrath starts WITHIN the house of God/his OWN people, and THEN branches outward. Why? Because he simply EXPECTS MORE from his OWN people, rather than from OTHERS who are NOT part of “His people”. Lets face it, all the people living in the world today that DON’T adhere to Him? He EXPECTS them to “act up” and isn’t surprised when they do so. But when the Lord’s OWN PEOPLE act up? THAT’S when He, the great Lord, gets angry & disappointed. Why? Because the Lord’s people know better!

In other words, “the church”, as a whole, should know better than to “legitimize/endorse” behaviors that are SIN in the bible (such as divorce, abortion, adultery, sodomy/lust, materialism, idolatry, humanism, etc.) That’s WHY the Lord God’s FAR more angry with “the church” today (as a whole) than he is with all the non-believers, etc. Now, that’s not to say that the Lord ISN’T angry with the scoffers/mockers/etc., for He most certainly IS! It’s just that He’s FAR more angry with his own “spiritual children” (that he expects MORE FROM) than he is with all others.

And I don’t know alot but I DO know this: the Lord God Almighty is calling “THE CHURCH” (as a whole) to REPENTANCE! Jesus Christ is LONGING for His Children (the Church/Body of Believers) but the Church/Body of Believers is NOT ready! The Church (as a whole) is FAR from ready!

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee” – [Revelation 3:3]

In the above passage, Jesus Christ is talking to “The Church” (as a whole). In fact, in ALL passages in Revelation talking about “the churches”? It is of MY personal belief that the Lord Jesus Christ is actually talking to the “The Church” (as a whole). In the book of Revelation, there’s 7 churches and 7 spirits of God.

And in my humble opinion, the 7 churches can mean literal churches (at the time of Jesus?) but they can also mean 7 different TYPES of Christians and/or 7 different TYPES of spiritual relationships with the Lord. However, taken together as a WHOLE, one can gather ALL the “grievances” that the Lord Jesus Christ HAS against the 7 churches and take it AS A WHOLE! Just like whatever Jesus Christ APPLAUDS about any of the 7 Churches, one can also likely take THAT as a whole, as well! (HOWEVER, the REWARDS in New Jerusalem — the new heavenly city — for those few REDEEMED by Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ  — are going to differ from person to person, someday!)

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7: 21-23Not 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“.

And in Matthew 7: 13-14, Jesus said: Enter 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 thereatBecause STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE [Jesus Christ Almighty], and FEW there be that find it

What’s really, really sad to me is that many of today’s “Christians” automatically assume that they’re gonna spend eternity with Jesus Christ someday and “be saved from Hell/Eternal Condemnation”, as it were. But what Jesus Christ is SAYING in the above 2 passages proclaims that will NOT be the case! For Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua says that there will be VERY FEW people that are redeemed by Him. VERY FEW.

So how utterly terrifying would that be, if a “Christian” THOUGHT they were gonna enter into the heavenly city someday called “New Jerusalem”, ONLY to be later turned away and cast into OUTER DARKNESS in the LAKE OF FIRE **FOR ETERNITY** with all the OTHER nonbelievers, scoffers, mockers, etc.? That would be utterly terrifying, INDEED! 

And I can just picture, now……..Christians (right after the Judgement) saying to Jesus Christ the King: “But I went to church every week, I donated to charity, I cast out demons in your name, I increased the church attendance ten-fold, I did this, I did that!” with Jesus Christ just giving them a look of retort AND angered/grieved sadness saying:“I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.

On other OTHER hand, I can picture some of the more “humble” ones………the Christians that AREN’T so arrogant in their thinking, that think to themselves………“Man…….the Lord’s done SO MUCH for me, and for Him, I’ve done SO very little, there’s SO MUCH MORE WORK for the Lord that I COULD be doing, the work I’ve done for Him already ISN’T NEARLY enough!” with Jesus Christ the King proudly & joyously saying: “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” [Matthew 25:34]

And in today’s world, there’s much “discussion” and “viewpoints” and “teachings” on the bible and bible prophecy. I think the Lord purposely allowed it to be set up this way in the Last Days in order to test the hearts, souls and minds. Why? Because He wants to know our true character and rather or not we truly love Him or not.

Remember during the time of the New Testament when Jesus asked Peter THREE TIMES, “Peter, do you love me?” and how Jesus answered the third time, “then feed my sheep”? The Lord Jesus was testing Peter’s character. And if He was testing PETER’S character (his most FAVORITE disciple, or so it SEEMS), you can bet your toosh that Jesus continually tests OUR character! And he HAS to do so in order to “refine” us and “refine our faith”. Because if he DIDN’T continually test us, he’d be just like a P.E. Teacher who let all his children run amok around the gym, with no discipline or supervision! Think about it, folks!

But I think some of the “marker points” He will use to “divide the wheat from the tares” will likely be the following:

1). Does a Christian BELIEVE the bible (front to back) LITERALLY, from Generations to Revelation? 

2). DOES A PERSON LOVE JESUS MORE THAN THEY LOVE THEIR OWN LIVES? ARE THEY WILLING TO DIE FOR JESUS, IF NEED BE?

3). Has a Christian read the entire bible for THEMSELVES (instead of leaning on traditions of man/pastors/priests) and have they hungered and thirsted for righteousness, above all other things?

4). Does a Christian openly accept (or tolerate) behaviors that are CLEARLY SIN in the bible such as divorce, adultery, sodomy/lust, homosexuality, materialism, greed, pride, envy, IDOLATRY, gluttony, abortion, humanism, etc? 

5). Does a Christian try to “earn” their Salvation with “works”, instead of by FAITH?

6). Does a Christian give PRAISE & THANKS/THANKSGIVING to the Lord Jesus Christ continually, where praise is due?

7). Does a Christian think “going to church every week” will save him or her?

8). Does a Christian still worship on a “Paganized Sabbath” (Sunday) and in “Paganized Holidays” (Christmas, Easter, New Years, Valentine’s Day, Halloween) without a care or thought in the world about WHY “today’s Christianity” is so seemingly PAGAN, above all else?

9). Does a Christian HAVE strong faith in Jesus Christ and His Almighty Power?

10). Does a Christian GIVE to others freely, without expecting ANYTHING in return?

11). Does a Christian “hold a grudge” against anyone?

12). Does a Christian feel MAJOR REMORSE over any and all sin in their life? And has a Christian PRAYED FOR FORGIVENESS of such sin? And has a Christian STOPPED DOING said sin(s)?

13). Does a Christian love others more than they love themselves? And does a Christian have any “harsh judgement” in their hearts for any others?

14). Has a Christian boldly stepped out in faith and proclaimed the gospel to others?

15). Does a Christian have a PERSONAL one-on-one/NON-COMMERCIALIZED spiritual relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? As in, Jesus Christ is closer to them than even their very own bestfriends (much similar to Enoch in the Old Testament)?

16). Has a Christian warned OPEN HOMOSEXUALS/BISEXUALS about the SIN of sodomy and the realities of hell/lake of fire/eternal condemnation?

17). Plus many, many more! 

But one thing I DO know is THIS: The Lord Jesus Christ is trying to prepare HIS BRIDE (“The Church”) for his soon glorious return in the clouds of heaven! That is when he’ll snatch up His Bride, in anticipation for “The Wedding Supper Of The Lamb”, one of the most glorious events in Heaven’s history! 😉 

So please, I ask you, I beg of you, I IMPLORE YOU, and I PLEAD WITH YOU, from the bottom of my hearts and the DEPTHS OF MY SOUL……If you’re not right with Jesus Christ today, then I pray today that you GET RIGHT WITH HIM and DO NOT TARRY! And if you’ve NEVER come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before and/or you’re not a believer in Jesus Christ, then I pray that TODAY is the day of your Salvation in Christ Jesus! 

Time is of the essence! Tomorrow’s not guaranteed! And Eternity is FOREVER! Now is NOT the time to be playing with your Eternal Salvation, folks! Just like now is not the time for “The Church” (as a whole) to be playing games with ITS SALVATION (as a whole). 

The warning call has been sounded all across the board in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ by the Lord’s BIBLICAL servants of 2015. Will YOU listen? Will “I” listen? Will the “U.S. nation – as a whole” listen? And will “The Church” (as a whole) listen? For your sake and for my sake, I sure hope so! Amen. 

Through The Wormhole: Rise of The Anti-Christ

After doing some MAJOR research on CERN, in general, I happened across ANOTHER Youtube video that exposed the numerous mass media images lately of “circles”, “barren desert”, “fallen angels”, “the abyss”, “portals”, “world nuclear destruction”, “aliens/time travelers/future bots”, “portals” and “time warp images” and the like and how they all TIED IN WITH CERN! And they all seem to converge and carry the same theme: the welcoming of the Anti-Christ!

Down below is what I’ve found in all my research:

Alma Thomas ‘Resurrection’ Painting Placed in White House:

ressurection-1966

SPIRAL PIZZA Okay, I’ve seen this same general “spiral design” on alot of things, lately (clothes, logos, tatoos, etc.). The spiral design IS supposed to be of “Satanic origin”…….Note how there’s also the “spiral pattern” in the Wizard of Oz movie:

SPIRAL, WIZARD OF OZ

This is from 2013:

These are from 2014

Video from 2011

Video from 2012

But basically, there is this whole “New Age” type “consciousness” going on……..and I think the REASON for this is that the elite are trying to “program” people to fully ACCEPT the “New World Order” and False Messiah that will soon take control over the entire world! 

Revelation 13:16-17 states: And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”

And ALL those people who don’t put their faith, trust, love & OBEDIENCE into Jesus Christ Almighty WILL be deceived by this false Messiah, who will no doubt call himself “the Savior of the world”. And what’s gonna bring ABOUT this false Messiah of the world is WORLD CHAOUS! He will “appear” to be the answer to all of mankind’s problems but he’s nothing but a LIAR & DECEIVER!

He will create FALSE MIRACLES, such as reigning down fire from heaven in the site of men! And BECAUSE of his false miracles, many will BE DECIEVED by him and TAKE HIS MARK! But God warns in the bible that whomever takes the mark of the beast WILL BE CONDEMNED FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!

What’s REALLY interesting to note is THIS: The Jews never accepted Jesus Christ as their Messiah (as a whole) and are “still technically waiting on their Messiah”, the Muslims are awaiting the 12th Iman or the Madhi/Maitreya, Buddists are awaiting the 5th incarnation of Buddha, Hindus are awaiting the incarnation of Krishna or Kali, Indigenous Mayans/Aztecs are awaiting the reincarnation of Quetzacoatyl (the “Serpent God”), while the Christians are awaiting the ANTI-CHRIST! That’s precisely WHY this “world leader”/”world Messiah” will be able to deceive EVERYONE (all the people that don’t put their faith, trust, love & OBEDIENCE into Jesus Christ Almighty, that is!) 

I pray that this ENTIRE blog and all included Youtube clips have enlightened you and shown you THE TRUTH about what Jesus Christ’s gospel really, truly IS and what it ISN’T! I hope you’ve done your research and now know the TRUTH about the TRUE history of the Catholic Church and Christianity! I hope you will still continue to fight AGAINST gay marriage in your state! I hope you will be faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ and spiritually ENDURE in these here End Times! I hope you will READ my post entitled “Signs of the Last Days: Bible Prophecy Fulfilled”:

https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2015/01/10/signs-of-the-last-days-bible-prophecy-fulfilled/

But most importantly, I hope and pray that you NEVER lose your faith in Jesus Christ Almighty! May the Lord Jesus Christ be with you ALL during these here End Times! Amen. 

What Are YOU Grateful For?

Many of us humanoids naturally take things/people/events for granted. And that’s easy to do when we feel like we have everything we need in life. However, when we DON’T have everything we need/feel like we need, that’s usually when we turn into chronic complainers, am I right? We all start walking around with a “woe is me” type attitude, complaining to our friends/family/God about this or complaining to our friends/family/God about that.

But let me tell you something. Our friends don’t want to hear it, our family doesn’t want to hear it and God doesn’t want to hear it. And trust me, it’s not that they don’t care. OFCOURSE they care! But do you know and REALIZE just how emotionally/mentally/physically/psychologically draining it is to have to listen to someone CHRONICALLY bicker/rant/vent/complain about their life/their circumstances/another person/people/etc.? IT’S EXHAUSTING!

Sometimes I honestly feel sorry for the Lord above. It must be a really, really hard thing to have to listen to BILLIONS of believers angrily or sadly bitching to him about this or that EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. In fact, it must be DRAINING! And no matter HOW much he tries to help mankind see the light, mankind is stubborn, sinful, rebellious & ungrateful alot of the time. It must break his heavenly heart! ;(

But sometimes it helps to put things in perspective. Okay, so maybe you didn’t get that job promotion you were hoping for. So what. Jesus has better plans for you. Maybe what you thought was the love of your life left you most recently. Don’t fret. Jesus has other plans for you. Maybe it seems to you that so and so has it alot easier in life than you do. Don’t obsess over it. Envy is sin and you’ll get your own big break in life, sooner or later. Remember Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” and Matthew 6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”.

The root of complainism, in my opinion, stems from distrust/lack of faith/anxiety/fear. We COMPLAIN to Jesus Christ about things because we don’t TRUST Jesus Christ about things in our life.

And as a matter of fact, when it comes to the very concept of “anxiety/worry/fear”, in and of ITSELF, Jesus Christ had THIS to say in Matthew 6:24-35

“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”

And know this as well: no matter HOW bad you think you have it, someone else out there has it off worse than you do. It’s true. For example: Americans (specifically American Judeo-Christians) want to bitch about how “spiritually corrupted” our country has become. But look at Christians living over in Asia and the Middle East. Many of them LOSE THEIR VERY LIVES for their faith, as well as doing so much as being in possession of a bible, a FORBIDDEN BOOK in their country/countries! Others are tortured and/or imprisoned for long periods of time. Therefore, us American Christians should be lucky we still live in a country (atleast for the time being) that allows us to practice our faith OPENLY without threat of death/imprisonment!

Or perhaps some single people out there are bitching and ranting and raving about being single. So what. As some married people would say to all you singles out there, “you don’t know how good you have it!” In other words, it seems like the grass is always greener on the other side! People always want what they can’t have! And WHEN they get that thing/person that was previously unattainable, they tend to LOSE INTEREST in it/that person, am I right?

Human nature dictates that we take for granted that which is easily obtained. Which makes sense. When Jesus Christ Almighty died as an eternal sacrifice for mankind’s sins, Salvation became a FREE GIFT to all whom believed and wished to receive it. Therefore, because it’s a FREE GIFT from God (BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH), it’s VERY EASILY taken for granted by mankind. People “put off/prolong” *being saved* in the name of Jesus Christ for that very reason!

On the other hand, we DO tend to be grateful for things that are NOT easily obtained. Why? Because we actually have to WORK for them since they’re not just magically handed to us. While it’s true that Salvation is granted by Grace through Faith, it’s also true that we must work to MAINTAIN that Salvation.

Jesus Christ says in John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments“. He further expands on this in Matthew 7:21Not 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“. Translation? Those who work to MAINTAIN their free gift of Salvation (by adhering to all of Jesus’s commandments in the bible — including but not limited to the 10 commandments) will KEEP it, while those who do NOT work to maintain their free gift of salvation (whom believe in Jesus Christ but of whom do NOT follow his commandments in the bible) will LOSE it.

[Unfortunately, we’re now living in the times of the End and Salvation can’t wait, folks! The eternal clock is ticking! When Jesus Christ returns to the Earth for the 2nd time (and the bible SAYS he will), it’ll be too late and one’s fate will be sealed for eternity! So don’t be left behind, folks! Cry out to Jesus Christ TODAY! Don’t wait until tomorrow since tomorrow is not guaranteed! Note: **The recent world events/fulfillment of bible prophecy proclaim that Jesus’s return to the Earth is sooner now than EVER before! In fact, it might only be a mere number of months/DAYS before he returns!**]

That being said, what are YOU grateful for? What has the Lord Jesus done in your life? Well, for starters, he died an agonizing death for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins. All of mankind are sinners and are deserving of hell/eternal punishment. But Jesus Christ took it upon Himself to become an *atonement* for mankind’s sins. Therefore, Jesus died an excruciating death just to give YOU and ME and ALL of mankind a chance to go Eternal Paradise someday. There’s NO greater love than that, people! He also performed many miracles in the times of the New Testament and even during the times of the OLD TESTAMENT (as something called a “Christophany” – look it up!)

But next to what he’s ALREADY done for mankind and for the nation of Israel PERSONALLY during the times of the Old and New Testament, what has Jesus Christ personally done for YOU? Has he revealed Himself to you during a Near-Death Experience? Did he cure someone in your family from cancer? Did he heal YOU personally from some health problem or ailment? Did the Lord Jesus allow you to travel to an awesome place or places/destinations in the world? Did he send someone totally awesome into your life? Has he repaired a broken relationship? Has the Lord Jesus Christ given you special talents/hobbies in life? What are YOU grateful for, in your life? Think about what you’re grateful for in life, and then PRAISE HIM! Praise him above ALL other people and ALL other things! Do nothing but PRAISE HIM for he is worthy of ALL PRAISE! 😉

You can EVEN be grateful for times of personal suffering in your life! Why? Because think about it. When we have everything we need, we think we “don’t NEED God/Jesus Christ”. But when we DON’T have everything we need and life’s a pain/struggle, OH HOW MUCH WE CRY OUT TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, **THEN**, am I right? 😉 And as a result of that, what happened? WE WERE DRAWN CLOSER AND CLOSER TO **HIM**/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY and never felt more happier/more joyous/more at peace within ourselves AND with HIM, am I right? 😉

So PRAISE HIM! EVEN in times of hardship/struggle! Just like Job said to his wife in Job 2:10 “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips”, we must PRAISE THE LORD JESUS, ALWAYS! 😉

And think about it. How many times in your life did a “bad thing” later turn out to be a “good thing”? What originally appears as a downfall can later turn out to be a blessing in disguise. For example: maybe a person was denied what they thought was their “dream job”, only to later find a DIFFERENT job that they really, really enjoyed. Or perhaps a woman that originally wanted kids found out she was going through peri-menopause and couldn’t have kids due to that and other health reasons but later discovered that she could NOT accomplish her life goals with kids in the picture (thus deciding she really didn’t want kids, AFTERALL).

Jesus Christ works in mysterious ways. And whatever pain or struggle you’re going through right now in life, not only does He know but there’s a divine purpose for it all! And though we may not always understand Jesus’s reasoning at the TIME of the struggle in our lives, the answer will later become apparent to us, someday! 😉

If you don’t have a strong faith in Jesus Christ right now and/or IN His ability to adequately control/get a handle on your life, ask yourself why. How you answer this question will determine your best course of action regaining your faith and trust in HIM! And remember: He’s willing and waiting for you WITH OPEN ARMS to come back to Him in total repentance and total faith! Just give him a chance to work in your life! 😉

And remember: God created the universe and the heavens! So don’t you think he’d know how to handle the struggles in YOUR life? You’re talking about a God here that created DNA, cells, atoms, proteins and membranes down to the VERY LAST DETAIL! 😉 So it’s not like the turmoils of everyday human life is going to have him “totally stumped” or something! haha! 😉

Struggling times are NEEDED from time to time for SPIRITUAL GROWTH. Without a struggle of ANY sort, there would be NO spiritual growth and without ANY spiritual growth, there would no NO true faith that was tested in the fire of adversity. And Hebrews 11:6 says: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.
