The TRUTH About Modern Day “Secular Therapy”, ETC.

Modern day “secular therapy” has us go to “psychiatrists” and “psychologists”. Many secular “experts” tell us that our “depression” and “anxiety” and “behavioral disorders” (especially in young children and teens) are caused by a “chemical imbalance of the brain” and that “medication” + “secular talk therapy” is the ONLY means by which to be “healed”. But is that RIGHT? Is it BIBLICALLY sound and ACCURATE? Or is it just one of MANY “secular lies” that are meant to once again HIDE US FROM THE COMPLETE 100% TRUTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD/JESUS? Let us examine.

When going to Amazon one day to search for some Christian end times resources, the Lord Jesus IMMEDIATELY compelled me to suddenly look at the actual user reviews for an ungodly book called: “The Satanic Bible”. And I said outloud in shock: “JESUS, ARE YOU FOR REAL ON THAT? YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!”

But instead, the sad but calm/firm answer I got back from him was THIS: “Look at what they SAY…..the people who UPHOLD that ungodly book, that is…..it will help give you a really good insight into HOW the enemy deceives and the EXACT POINTS in people’s lives WHERE he’s deceiving them AT. You might just be surprised!”

And so, after spending some time in prayer and with much trepidation, I headed on over to see the user reviews! And MAN, WAS MY SOUL **GRIEVED** AND SADDENED, as I poured over the user reviews to try to figure out just WHAT these poor, deceived folks found so “enticing” about “Satan/Satanism”. I felt like my soul was about to vomit!

Nevertheless, ONE particular user review STOOD OUT AT ME! In fact, it was ONE sentence in particular IN that review that really JUMPED RIGHT OUT AT ME!

………”IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PSYCHOLOGY, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED, HOW CLOSE MANY ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK ARE TO WHAT THERAPISTS TEACH THEIR CLIENTS TO **IMPROVE THEIR LIVES!**…….”

Now, WOW…..that quote is QUITE TELLING, isn’t it, folks? But yet, it actually makes sense. Modern day “secular therapy” and all the colleges and universities (UNLESS it’s born-again CHRISTIAN therapists/psychiatrists) are all teaching a thing called “self-actualization”.

Basically, that means the promotion of SELF! Or in other popular lingo, it means “Do You”, “be the person YOU want to be”, “follow YOUR dreams/desires”, etc., REGARDLESS of what Jesus thinks! In other words, put YOUR own needs above the needs of any and all others (especially Jesus!)

Lets say you want to start a business, etc. Great! But is the Lord Jesus in on it? Do YOU have the Lord Jesus’s approval AND backing for said business, etc.? Because if you DON’T, that’s placing your own wants/needs/desires before Jesus’s will/desire for your life! And placing ourselves BEFORE Jesus in our “life dreams” or “plans” is actually indirectly DENYING the cross of Jesus (rather we like it or admit it or not) and making OURSELVES our “own god!” It’s true! 

And thus, placing our OWN needs ahead of the will of Jesus is, ofcourse, a form of “idolatry” (making ourselves “our own god”), which is COMPLETELY CONTRADICTORY to the words of Jesus Christ himself who in Luke 9:23 said: “…..If any man will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS *DAILY*, and follow me“. Now…….what does it mean to “take up one’s cross DAILY?”, some of you might be wondering. “Is Jesus talking about a LITERAL CROSS or what?” 

Well, first of all, think of what all Jesus had to endure ON the cross (i.e. excruciating PAIN, sorrow, mocking, ridicule, laughter, being spat on, having a crown of thorns placed on his head, being stabbed in his side with a spear, his hands and feet NAILED to the cross, etc.)

In other words, he had to suffer excruciating pain for OUR benefit (i.e. becoming the ATONEMENT for all of the sins of mankind). Therefore……what does it mean when WE “bear our cross” DAILY for Jesus? It means bearing our personal “CROSSES OF AFFLICTION” FOR the sake of Jesus and his gospel!

And no two people’s “crosses of affliction” are alike! Now…..IS this a LITERAL cross we must nail ourselves to everyday? No, ofcourse not! It is a spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and psychological cross of “spiritual affliction” that we must pick up and carry with us each and every single day of our lives! So for example, ONE person’s “daily cross of affliction” may be struggles with spiritual persecution for being a Christian, while ANOTHER person’s “daily cross of affliction” might be a struggle with a perpetual sin that they’re attempting to overcome (i.e. alcoholism, lust, same sex attraction, etc.)

And EACH and every single day, each person must spiritually FIGHT that “cross” of spiritual affliction and OVERCOME that “cross of affliction”, if that makes any sense? So in other words, the person that suffers the “cross of spiritual persecution” must ENDURE that spiritual persecution and KEEP THE FAITH, each and every single day, NO MATTER WHAT! And the person struggling with the “cross of affliction” of alcoholism/same-sex attraction/etc. must FIGHT the temptations OF that “sin” (i.e. that “cross of affliction”) each and every single day of their lives! That’s what Jesus means when he says to “….take up his cross daily, and follow me” [reference: Luke 9:23]

Therefore, “self-actualization” and/or worship of SELF does absolutely NOTHING for Jesus or his gospel! In fact, those two ungodly practices actually cause us to DENY our “daily cross of affliction” and to DENY Jesus and his gospel! So think about that for a bit! 

Now….why does Jesus want us to DENY OURSELVES for him in this Earthly life? Think about what Jesus HIMSELF denied for US! When He came to the Earth as a newborn infant, he DENIED himself his divinity and RICHES! (True, he had the “rich gifts” from the 3 wise men…….but he was born into a POOR FAMILY!) He wasn’t even born in a proper inn but in a barn-type stable! Now think about that……..truly think about that for a minute! His whole entire earthly life, he was POOR!

For the 3 some years of his ministry on the Earth, he was a NOMAD! And though he performed miracles, etc., he STILL denied himself of his FULL divinity! And when he was tried and persecuted and nailed to the cross, he CONTINUED to deny himself his full divinity!

In fact, he denied himself EVERYTHING for US! He sacrificed HIMSELF completely for the forgiveness of OUR sins! He then gained victory over death, hell and the grave! He later ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father! THE UNIVERSE HAS KNOWN NO GREATER LOVE THAN THE LOVE THAT JESUS HAD **FOR MANKIND** WHEN HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS FOR FORGIVENESS OF MANKIND’S SINS!!! (NOTE: PLEASE READ JOHN 3:16).

Therefore, Jesus denied himself for US! Which is why WE NOW, must deny ourselves, in turn, for HIM and His everlasting gospel! Because we are to be likened onto HIM! For mankind was made in his image! (It says that in Genesis 1:27!) So in other words, we are to try to live our lives as much like Christ as possible. We should strive to serve others before ourselves. We should be slow to anger, quick to forgive, patient, loving, kind. We should honor and follow the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, etc.

Now, we’re all human, and we’re all going to fall short of the mark of righteousness sometimes. This is recorded in Romans 3:23 which states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.

So in other words, nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. However, that shouldn’t give us a free license to sin! Some of today’s Christian therapists might mean well on the surface. But if they’re not born again or if they’re lukewarm or a “leftist liberal” that supports such things such as LGBT and abortion, it’s time for you to seek a NEW Christian therapist!

But then again, it begs of question: Why do we humans keep going to other people and the internet to try to solve our problems when we should instead be going to JESUS HIMSELF to solve all our problems? Isn’t JESUS HIMSELF the ULTIMATE HEALER? And doesn’t JESUS HIMSELF have all the answers to the questions or problems that we seek solutions for?

Didn’t JESUS HIMSELF create the universe and the heavens? So how then is he going to scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR problems? Answer: he won’t! Because doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens with just the MERE SOUND OF HIS VOICE (i.e. “let there be light”), that he certainly knows what he’s doing in OUR everyday lives (rather we know it or realize it or not?)

Another aspect I forgot to mention is “demonic influences” (i.e. Ephesians 6:12). They are MUCH more powerful and active than we think! Even just ONE alcoholic drink, ONE ungodly movie, ONE ungodly music song, ONE un-prescribed painkiller, ONE ungodly book (i.e. Harry Potter), ONE ungodly object in our homes such as Ouija board/tarot cards/carved idol could be enough to invite SEVERAL DEMONS into our hearts, homes, minds and SOULS!

So it’s really NO WONDER the majority of Americans today (as well as several people around the world) feel depressed, anxious, restless, unfulfilled, never happy, etc. It’s because of all the “demonic influences” that people have let into their lives! That’s the REAL reason for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc.! BUT SECULAR THERAPISTS WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT!

They’ll lie to you (many being “spiritually lost” themselves) and will say it’s because of a “chemical imbalance in the brain”. Okay, question, who or what CAUSED that so-called “chemical imbalance” in the FIRST PLACE? Any clues? Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY wasn’t Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS angels that did that!

And the fact that SATAN/DEMONS are responsible for ALL cases of restlessness/anxiety/SEVERE DEPRESSION……it almost sounds somewhat “odd”, “crazy” or “sensational” on the surface, doesn’t it? But yet, the demonic realm is REAL! Many famous movie stars have come out and ADMITTED they sold their soul to Satan and/or agreed to be *inhabited by demons* for money, fortune and fame! And they’re NOT kidding, folks! DEMONS ARE REAL! SATAN IS REAL! Don’t you DARE bet your soul otherwise!

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

Ofcourse, don’t get me started on how the bible constantly uses the words “he”, “him” and “his”. Because in nearly all of those cases, Jesus means females as well. If the bible translators were gonna be very technical about it, they could’ve written “he/she”, “his/hers”, “him/her”, etc.

However, in light of today’s modern day “gender confusion” among the extreme LEFT here in America, I believe Jesus PURPOSELY had them translate the words AS “he”, “him” and “his” in order to avoid any future confusion that might’ve been caused with the modern day “transgender movement”. Because we have to remember that Jesus is an all-powerful, all-knowing God. He knew way ahead of time about the “transgender madness” that would soon take place in this fallen world!

I believe ANOTHER reason the bible tends towards male adjectives is because A) Jesus himself is MALE and all the prophets of Old (save for Anna and Deborah) were MALE! In other words, the message between the lines (all throughout the scriptures) is that modern day men (and women) need to be likened onto the prophets of God that (for the most part) did NOT rebel against God, in other words.

In other words, the whole of scripture is warning us NOT to commit the same ultimate sin that Adam and Eve did. Because IF we do {and in OUR modern day times, taking the Mark of the Beast is what I literally see as partaking of the modern-day version of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil}, the consequence won’t just be physical death but ETERNAL DEATH/CONDEMNATION as well. The reason that Adam & Eve “got off so easy” on their MAJOR TRANSGRESSION is because they were the VERY FIRST humans. They “almost” didn’t know any better.

But yet, MODERN DAY humans? We’ve had nearly 4,000? + years or more of human history, plus the scriptures and scriptural examples, not to mention the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross! Therefore, while Adam & Eve were forgiven for their “original sin” of partaking of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil (even though they were still temporally punished with “physical death” later, as a consequence of their actions), WE (i.e. modern day humans) will be WITHOUT EXCUSE (and be ETERNALLY PUNISHED BY JESUS) if WE partake of OUR modern-day version of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (i.e. The Mark of the Beast!) 

But going back to the modern day field of “psychiatry”. It “diagnosis” things and then “prescribes medication”. And the pharmaceutical industry is a HUGE part of it! They’re CONSTANTLY developing new “drugs” for things such as “depression”, “anxiety”, etc. They FUND studies that attempt to show the so-called “effectiveness” of their “new drugs”. And sadly, those “studies” seem to have very little oversight by the FDA, from what I’ve noticed.

So when you got this multi-BILLION dollar INDUSTRY that makes its money off of people being “sick” and/or “full of depression/anxiety”, you begin to understand how and why all these “meds” are over-prescribed and under-studied! Just follow the $$$$ signs! They don’t make their money by people getting better, folks! They make their money off of people being “sick” and “unhealthy!” Think about it, now! I really hate to say that but it’s the truth! Big Pharma is ONLY out to make money! And “secular therapists” (for the most part anyways, as a whole) are too, for that matter! It’s only the TRULY born-again Christian therapists who aren’t out to make money but to SAVE SOULS!

Also: Drugs meant to treat “depression” and “anxiety” are considered “mind-altering drugs”. But honestly. How is that any different from “psychedelics?” Both of them “alter the mind”, it’s just that one is “legal”, while the other is not. Do we REALLY want or need to put ANY form of “mind-altering drugs” into our system? Even the ones that are “legal?” Think about that long and hard, folks! (Please note: I’m not talking about medications that are used to break fevers or colds or that sort of thing. I’m ONLY talking about mind-altering medications!!!!!!!) 

In fact, I’ve even seen cases where certain anti-depressants (and even some sleep medications) actually INCREASED feelings of depression and anxiety and CAUSED a person (especially a teen or young child) to feel suicidal! As in, making the person BECOME what the medication itself was originally supposed to CURE/TREAT! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE, FOLKS? That should be a HUGE red flag, people! Who or what is behind Big Pharma? Any guesses folks? Cause it sure as heck ain’t Jesus or his righteous angels!!!!!!!!! 

One word that keeps coming back to me over and over again is the word “pharmakeia”. Something about the word just perpetually HAUNTS MY SOUL (for some reason) and I don’t know why! But according to the following website: https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Lexicon.show/ID/G5331/pharmakeia.htm, the word is a Greek word which means (in retrospect) “pharmacy” or “medicine”. It could also mean “sorcery” or “witchcraft”.

But again, it stands to reason! Just HOW MANY diseases, headaches and ailments (such as depression, epilepsy, anxiety) are actually caused by DEMONIC SPIRITS? Probably more than we think! Jesus was able to cure people INSTANTLY! In most cases, he placed his hand on them and they were healed. Which makes perfect sense. At the mere sight of Jesus, demons TREMBLE! (“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” – James 2:19).

But in TODAY’S WORLD, people are turning to MEDICINE (in and of itself) for all of their mental, emotional and physical ailments, INSTEAD of turning to Jesus Christ himself, whom they SHOULD be turning to! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Today, we live in a such a “pill popping society”. “Oh, you got THIS? Take a pill” seems to be the prime societal attitude. Many people (even myself included, at times) are FORGETTING the fact that Jesus isn’t JUST Almighty God in the flesh, isn’t JUST the “atoning saviour” of ALL of mankind (those who choose to believe in and OBEY HIM, that is), but he’s also THE HEALER! For just how many times do we read about Jesus HEALING PEOPLE *INSTANTLY* in the New Testament? Answer: SEVERAL!

But again, lets us go back to the Lord’s Prayer. When the disciples were on the Mount of Olives with Jesus, they not only asked him about the signs of the end of times (i.e. the end of the age) but they also asked him about the proper way to “pray”. And Jesus’s response was THIS:

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen“. Matthew 6:6-13 {Note: Please remember that the very last lines of “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” were ADDED WORDS and the Lord’s DIRE WARNING to us about “adding words” in Revelation 22:18-19! That’s something we should all take VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!)} 

Okay, now zero in on the words THY WILL BE DONE. What does that imply? It implies that WE (like Jesus) should be seeking the Heavenly Father’s will (DAILY), instead of our OWN WILL! Because when Satan rebelled against the Heavenly Father in Heaven, he wanted HIS will to be done, INSTEAD of the Heavenly Father’s will (which ofcourse, in effect, was likened onto making himself his “own god” – IDOLATRY!) 

So that’s where you get all of this Secular “Do YOU” and “Do What Thou Wilt” stuff. Because Satan (whose angry and knows he has but a short time – as per Revelation 12:12) wants to try to conform all of mankind to HIS ungodly image (Note: Please remember from Genesis 1:27 that we – biologically-born males and females) are made in the image of God and Satan HATES the image of God and thus, desperately wants to THWART IT!) So instead of focusing on the words in the Lord’s Prayer called “THY WILL be done”, Satan is more focused on MY WILL be done”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

We’re SO concerned with what WE think, how WE feel, what WE want out of life (or even out of romantic love). Very, very few of us are concerned with what God the Heavenly Father wants or what Jesus wants! We’re ethnocentric, and egocentric! We think it’s all about US! “What should *I* buy on Amazon today? Where do *I* want to live, someday? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What about how *I* feel about such n’ such? What do *I* want out of life?”, etc. “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I!” However, there’s just one problem with that. Jesus is 99.9% of the time NOT in the picture OF those “thoughts” and “plans!” Kind’ve sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks? 

Group therapy can be effective, yes. It’s always GOOD to know that we’re not the only ones going through something. However…..if Jesus Christ himself is NOT the center of that “group therapy”, then just what good will it do, in the long run? Think about it. 

However, organizations like AA and/or “12 step programs” (for the most part) have a Christian backing. Because think about it. Lets say, just for theoretical example, that the atheists were right and there was no God, etc. Well, WHAT then, would be the prime motivator for a person to stop drinking, etc.? If we were “all that there is”, purely theoretically speaking, then there would truly be no motivator to quit drinking (outside of friends and family, and even THAT would likely be “iffy”, in secular settings and with secular/nihilistic viewpoints). 

However, BECAUSE Jesus exists, there IS a powerful motivator for an alcoholic to stop drinking (outside of friends, coworkers and family). Secular group “talk therapy” would be the same way. If we were “all that there is”, people would just meet like-minded people who would then become depressed TOGETHER, instead of getting better. Therefore, it’s only *born-again* CHRISTIAN group “talk therapy” that will help a person TRULY get better (not just physically but spiritually/emotionally/mentally, too). Secular group therapy only makes a person better up to a certain point. Do you see what I mean by this, folks?

Satan and “demonic spirits” are the ones causing people to drink, causing people to feel depressed and inadequate, causing people to have heartburn and anxiety, and causing people to “become addicted to opioids”.  That’s the BAD NEWS! However, the GOOD NEWS is that BECAUSE those things are caused by demonic spirits, Jesus Christ is ready, willing and ABLE to spiritually and physically deliver a person FROM those ungodly spirits, as soon as a person cries out to Jesus in prayer and TRULY BELIEVES! 

Though, like I said, demonic spirits need a “legal spiritual doorway” by which to enter! So again, I ask: What kind of music are you listening to? What kind of TV shows or movies are you watching? What kinds of video games are you playing? What kinds of friends or people are you keeping company with? What kinds of objects or “thoughts” are you letting into your car, home, workplace? What kinds of “words” or “thoughts” are you MEDITATING ON

I just saw this video earlier today that claimed that “words are energy“. It’s well-worth the watch! And remember, we must SPEAK Christ’s words over ourselves DAILY! The words of Christ HAVE POWER

So that being said, have you felt depressed, stressed, full of anxiety over the present or future, etc? Turn to Jesus today IN PRAYER! Have the FAITH that he will HEAL YOU and then he will HEAL YOU! 

Speak OUTLOUD the following words and phrases (and TRULY BELIEVE THEM) in order to GIVE THEM POWER:

1). “Spirit of Depression, I demand you to DEPART, in the name of Jesus!”

2). “Spirit of Anxiety/Heartburn/etc., I demand you to LEAVE, in the name of Jesus!”

3). “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5

4). “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

5). “And they OVERCAME HIM [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” – Revelation 12:11

6). “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – John 10:28

7). “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” – Revelation 20:10

 

Transgender & Drag Queen Promotion/Affirmation IN Children = CHILD ABUSE!!!

Most recently, there’s been TWO famous cases of so-called “transgendered children”, as well as TWO famous cases of “child drag queens”. But before we go any further into this, what exactly is “transgender” and/or a “child drag queen” and how did it start to become so widespread in today’s world and society?

“Transgender” is defined as feeling as though one is the opposite gender one was “born with”. However, the DSM-V defines it as a mental illness called “gender dysphoria”. Basically, that means that a person so-called doesn’t identify with the gender they were “born with” (i.e. a naturally-born male so-called doesn’t feel “male”, while a naturally-born female so-called doesn’t feel “female”).

And a “child drag queen” is a boy that likes to dress up in “girl” or “women” costumes and make-up.

Okay, now that we have the “definitions” out of the way, I’d like to talk about FOUR famous cases of Transgender and/or Child Drag Queen “promotion” and “affirmation” (by secular parents/society) in children under 18 (and the obvious long-lasting consequences it’s had on all four of them!) They are as follows:

  • ***James Damon Younger***
  • ***Desmond Napoles***
  • ***Lactatia***
  • “Jazz” Jennings

Lets start with the case of ***James Damon Younger***. His parents were going through a divorce. His mom had 2 daughters (from a previous relationship/marriage?), while his mom and dad had him and his fraternal twin brother, Jude. As soon as he and his brother Jude were 3 years old, the pediatrician mom (who worked 60-80 hours a week while his dad Jeff, was a stay-at-home dad) decided that “James is a girl” and should go by the name “Luna” (which is Spanish for “moon”, by the way).

The father (a born-again Christian?) REFUSED to “affirm” James as a “girl”. The father instead wanted to “affirm” James as a BOY (the gender he was BORN AS!) So what does the mother do? She “affirms” James as a GIRL, enrolls him in school as a GIRL, and ONLY lets him wear girl’s clothes!

HOWEVER…..when he goes to his dad’s house these days (his parents divorce has now already been finalized), his father gives him a choice if he wants to dress up as a boy or girl and the boy, James, ALWAYS decides to dress up as a BOY! The father Jeff even says James VIOLENTLY refuses to wear girl clothes around his dad and INSISTS that he is, in fact, a BOY! But yet, the father is NOT the ONLY one who’s noticed that James likes being a boy! Others have noticed it as well!

But anyways, the mother now (as far as my understanding goes) wants to strip Jeff (James’s father) of practically ALL parental & custodial rights. And not only that, but she’s now taken their 6-year old son James to see a “gender-transition counselor” and wants James to start taking hormones as early as 8 YEARS OLD! 8 YEARS OLD, FOLKS! This is NO JOKE!

But yet, if you dig back through the parents’ marital history, as evidenced on the site www.savejames.com, it’s blatantly OBVIOUS to me that James’s mother, as well as many mothers out there like her, are under SEVERE DEMONIC ATTACK!

And not only that but James DOES NOT fit ANY of the “gender dysphoria” criteria! He does not persistently insist that he’s a girl. If anything, he consistency insists THE OPPOSITE! (Except when he’s around his mom, ironically enough). When he was just 3 years old, his mother (a “pediatrician”) told him that he was “really a girl” and started dressing him up as such. (JUST WHAT WAS/IS GOING THROUGH THIS MOTHER’S MIND!!!????)

Though something tells me that if James “backs out” of this whole “Luna” thing, then the mother will likely start in on his brother Jude and try to get JUDE to “transition to a girl”. There is no doubt a DEMONIC SPIRIT that’s over-taking that mother right now. I really feel in the depths of my spirit that “the spirit” living inside the HEART of that mother is just doing all this to hurt the (born-again Christian?) father! She wants to take ALL custody rights away from him! ALL! Not some but ALL! And HERE’S the kicker: SHE’S NOT EVEN *BIOLOGICALLY RELATED* TO THE SON JAMES IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM! (Her and Mr. Younger, the father, had used an EGG DONOR!)

In fact, she even got (or tried?) to take out a RESTRAINING ORDER against the father for “daring to question” his son James’s desire to be a so-called “girl”. And during the trial testimony, she had FIVE LAWYERS to the father’s ONE lawyer and PAYED people to testify! Is that even LEGAL….? To PAY someone to testify? (That’s why we must PRAY for this woman! We must PRAY for this woman to see the light of Jesus before it’s too late!) 

But yeah, in a nutshell, that is what this liberal/secular world has now come to, folks! If you’re part of a marital union, and your SPOUSE wants your kid to be transgender and YOU don’t, good luck! The liberal courts will likely side with your “liberal” SPOUSE and not YOU! Or if your kid decides on their OWN that they’re transgender and you and your spouse IN UNISON don’t support that notion, there’s a chance your kid will be taken away from you by Child Protective Services!

Welcome to the “New World”, folks! I never thought I’d LIVE to see the day when these types of things would start to happen! But over time, court cases like this are going to start becoming more & more frequent, so brace yourselves! This is DEFINITELY part of what I callThe Ephesians 6:12/Isaiah 5:20 WARS!”

That being said, I really do NOT feel in my heart & soul that James wants to be a girl. I think he feels perfectly normal (as a naturally-born boy) and at ease with his dad. Why? Because for the most part, his mother worked 60-80 hours a week while his father RAISED HIM! Every boy needs his father! So why is his mother trying to take him and his brother away from their dad, PEREMANTELY? That’s just CRAZY! And as far as I can see, it’s NOT due to ANY type of physical abuse or what have ya, it’s SOLELY based on the fact that Jeff, the dad, will NOT “affirm” his son James as a “girl”, that’s the bottom line!

But this is a VERY heart-breaking case and I pray in Jesus’s name that James will NOT be forced to undergo “transgender therapy” against his will. (I also pray for healing & restoration for the ENTIRE Young family!) We should let boys be boys, and girls be girls; let women be women and let men be men. Whatever happened to that, folks? 20 years ago, the word “transgender” didn’t even exist! The world actually made sense back then. The world of 2018 and beyond? It’s no doubt BECAUSE we’re living in the Last Days talked about in bible prophecy. And like I said, if you think things are bad NOW – brace yourself – because it’s going to get alot WORSE!

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

Now lets go to the unique cases of Desmond Napoles (“Desmond Is Amazing”) and Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden (“Lactatia”). Desmond – from New York – is ONLY 11-12 years old, while Nemis – from Montreal, Canada – is ONLY 9-10 years old!

Not sure about Nemis but Desmond suffers from “autism”. And both of their stories are very similar. Both of their mothers began to “affirm” their sons as “child drag queens” from VERY early ages! (And like it or not, these young mothers THEMSELVES have already been “indoctrinated” into the trans/drag queen agenda LONG before their babies were ever born, so THINK about that for a moment….)

Remember about how “society” has been these past several years. It’s transgender this, transgender that. Drag queen this, drag queen that. So is it then any WONDER that some of these young children today are psychologically “tricked” into thinking they’re transgender and/or drag queens? Even many liberal grade-school teachers are now trying to “indoctrinate” children with “transgenderism/drag queen madness”:

We all like to solely blame THE PARENTS of these “transgender and/or drag queen children”. But folks, we got to remember something, here: The PARENTS (the “gate-keeper” of the child) are just AS demonically & spiritually deceived (if not even MORE SO) than the “transgendered/drag queen child” is! Because think about this: if THE PARENTS weren’t already spiritually deceived TO BEGIN WITH, they would’ve had the foresight and the wisdom to be able to recognize that “transgenderism/drag queenism” should NOT be encouraged in ANY child under 18 and also that natural-born gender (in and of ITSELF) is a *true gift from God!* (GOD DOESN’T MAKE MISTAKES, FOLKS! NO MATTER HOW THE LIBERAL MEDIA TRIES TO SPIN IT!) 

Many psychologists agree that young children occasionally being “curious” about what it’s like to be the opposite gender or occasionally playing with opposite-gender toys is “normal”. In other words, it’s just an “innocent phase”. So when you have a boy child that DEMANDS he’s a girl or a girl child that DEMANDS she’s a boy, it’s really nothing more than just a “rebellious” male or female child who doesn’t want to mind their parents! Think about it for a bit, really, truly think about it….

(And the spirit of “rebellion”, like it or not, is actually a DEMONIC SPIRIT that’s attempting to RULE OVER THE CHILD and the child’s thoughts/mind/behavior!) And SO when parents “cave” and “give in” to this “rebellious madness”, (either by means of a “therapist” who encourages them to “roll with it”, or by their own need for *societal affirmation*), that then allows the child (or rather, the demonic spirit working inside the MIND of the child) to WALK ALL OVER THEM……….**FOR LIFE!**

Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? It gives rise to the “I want, I want, I want” phenomena, does it NOT? And it NEVER STOPS! It’s almost like some of these parents have come to actually FEAR their own children and FEAR disciplining them and telling them NO! They then just give the child WHATEVER they want and that does NOT bode well for the child later on in life, MARK MY WORDS!

I’ve noticed that neither of Desmond’s parents work for a living (apparently). And that’s probably the case with Nemis’s parents as well (his mother and his step-dad). Are BOTH sets of parents using their children as a “paycheck” to make ends meet? Only the Lord knows. But I’m worried about just what types of lessons that’s teaching their respective child! That if they go out in drag and “strut themselves” in front of grown men, that they can make a “nice paycheck?” Because trust me folks, that’s NOT the type of lesson that us parents should be teaching our children!

But lets look further into the case of 11-year old Desmond Napoles. Did you know he was most recently allowed to “dance” at a “GAY BAR” and actually had grown men throwing MONEY at him? Yes, it’s true……..

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39409/11-year-old-boy-dressed-drag-dances-gay-men-bar-amanda-prestigiacomo

And if not already so, I can imagine that 10-year old “Lactatia” won’t be too far behind in those types of “endeavors”. in fact, just TODAY (1/15/2019), I came across THIS sickening article, concerning Nemis, in which he’s dressed in drag, posing with a fully nude adult male: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/10-year-old-boy-poses-in-drag-with-nude-man-how-is-this-not-child-porn

This is both HEART-WRENCHING & GROTESQUE, FOLKS! WHERE ARE THE PARENTS, HERE? WHY ARE THEY NOT IN THE PROCESS OF *BEING* THE PROTECTIVE GATE-KEEPERS OF THEIR CHILDREN? DO THEY HONESTLY NOT *CARE* THAT THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN ARE BEING *SEXUALLY EXPLOITED* BY GROWN MEN? I mean, these are PRE-TEENS we’re talking about here, folks!!!!!!

(And OBVIOUSLY, both Nemis and Desmond have been/are being sexually groomed by someone……because NO normal young boy will “act out” that way UNLESS they’re being sexually groomed by someone……think about it, folks!) If a young girl were posing for a photograph with a fully nude adult male in the background AND the picture was posted in a magazine, in the news or on social media, OR a young girl was provocatively dressed and went to a “lesbian bar” and strutted her body, having GROWN female women THROWING MONEY AT **HER**, there would be NATIONAL OUTRAGE and the “perp(s)” would swiftly be arrested, carted off to prison and likely attacked by fellow inmates before they even settled into their cell!

Yet…….according to today’s LIBERAL CULTURE, it’s PERFECTLY “OK” (in a “transgendered boy’s” case) for a fully nude ADULT male to pose RIGHT BEHIND/BESIDES the “transgender boy” for a widely-circulated photograph? Just like a trasgender “boy” is perfectly “OK” to get money thrown at in a gay bar? OUTRAGEOUS! I wonder what took place before/after the photo shoot and before/after the “gay bar dancing”. Do THEY (the parents) even know? See folks, that’s the problem! These two sets of parents of these two young boys are CLEARLY not protecting them from potential male adult predators the way they should!

Even though both “claim” to accompany them to “events” and “photo shoots”, it’ll only be a matter of time before they DON’T – either because the parents will eventually become “too trusting” of the male adult drag queens OR because their child himself will demand to be left alone with the adult male drag queens – and what, THEN? These parents (as well as their precious children) are under SEVERE DEMONIC DECEPTION and I pray that Jesus opens up their eyes before it’s too late! How my heart just absolutely breaks for these poor, precious, innocent children! 

The Christian Post also did an article on the subject: https://www.christianpost.com/news/how-should-christians-respond-child-drag-queens-sexualizing-kids.html

As did The Federalist:

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

Now let us turn to the case of “Jazz” Jennings. Interestingly enough, HIS TV show entitled “I am Jazz” premiered on July 15, 2015, just a mere three weeks TO THE DAY from the June 26, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court “gay marriage decision!” Coincidence? Only the Lord knows!  

It is reported that “Jazz” (who’s real name is reportedly Jared Bloshinsky – “Jennings” is a pseudonym) has now had the full top AND bottom surgery. [Granted, he’s now 18 years old but the whole entire “transgender affirmation” began much, much earlier in his life, as early as 5 years old!!!] He had top surgery and most recently, he had bottom surgery. 

However, he experienced “complications” during the bottom surgery, which required him to go for a second (mutilating) surgery! The doctors more or less stated they now “hope for the best”. HOPE FOR THE BEST? This is a precious 18-year old child we’re talking about, here! What if he had internal bleeding or some other major form of complications from the whole thing? What then

But nevermind all that. Lets just look at the whole story, in and of itself. From an early age, Jared look up to his older sister (and very possibly envied her). He wanted to dress in her clothes, play with HER toys, sleep in HER bed…….it’s almost like he wanted to BECOME HER!

Not to mention that the doctor said he’ll likely NEVER be able to naturally have children, someday. EVER! To us, from the outside looking in, that may not seem like a big deal. But in traditional Jewish culture (Jared and his family are Jewish), naturally having children – i.e. a family – is EVERYTHING! So imagine how personally (secretly?) devastating that must feel to him if he’s not able to naturally have children, someday.

And not only that but we can see from interviews, etc, (from the outside looking in, etc.), that Jared is extremely depressed! And confused. And not only that but on a clip for his TV show, he mentioned that it had been typically hard for him to find someone to date, specifically male. (It’s because most straight guys (as a whole) inherently KNOW – that someone can not biologically change their gender!) UPDATE: He now has a “boyfriend” but that’s really not gonna make anything better for him in the long run. It’s just eventually gonna make this whole “mess” of a situation even worse (over time!) 

But one more thing I’d like to mention here is that the LONG-TERM effects of hormones are NOT known……but I definitely think that ONE of the effects is that it possibly stunts emotional/mental maturity! Because now-18 year old Jared is quoted as saying that he LOVES making his dad uncomfortable. And on a clip during the show, he was seen asking his dad questions that only a 10 or 12 year would ask. Things such as: “Have you actually seen mom’s ________? What do you think of the shape of mom’s ______?” 

And not only that, but there’s also this sweet aura of “innocence” about him (as with the other 3 children in this post). Which makes me wonder if maybe somebody else (or something else – i.e. Satan) BEHIND the curtain, had been mentally programming them or pre-conditioning them ALL ALONG to think they’re a “girl”/”drag queen” from a very early age. Obviously not wanting anything to do with one’s normal, biological body has a “mental/psychological basis” (and if you ask me, a HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE BASIS!)

Jared’s parents (kudos to them for this) took him to a “therapist” when he was little to try to determine what was going on, but it was the THERAPIST that told them to “roll with it”. So we can see that many of the parents’ spiritual deceptions BEGAN with the therapist’s spiritual deception! Ofcourse, in Orthdox Jewish belief, they believe that God is both male AND female – so, as inititally troubled as they might’ve possibly felt at first, that might help explain WHY the parents took the therapist’s advice to just “roll with it”, instead of seeking a 2nd or 3rd opinion. 

[[January 302019 Update: Jared now has *a boyfriend* – and will undoubtedly STILL be seen by God as a “homosexual” MAN who is committing the sin of “same-sex sodomy”. His “cosmetically changing genders” – won’t change that fact! But yet, here’s THE MOST HEARTBREAKING thing of all, about this entire situation! They recently had a “penis cake” that they cut up and served in order to “celebrate Jazz’s full transition”, they said! OH HOW MY SOUL GRIEVES FOR THIS POOR YOUNG BOY – A BOY WHO IS **SO SPIRITUALLY DECIEVED** by Satan that it’s not even funny! What a sad, sad day in America, INDEED!!!]]

But again, there’s SEVERAL questions, here. What’s gonna happen once the “I am Jazz” show ends and Jared is forced to face reality? HE has suffered severe depression and stress all throughout the show. But instead of someone close to him taking a further, deeper look into it, it was pre-maturely concluded: “Oh, it must be because he hasn’t yet had the full surgery”. 

But folks, know THIS: When 5-10 some years go by, and when REALITY FULLY SINKS IN and he likely STILL doesn’t feel completely 100% satisfied, (him having “the boyfriend” is only a TEMPORARY distraction from reality for him), the blame will be shifted to all those who “don’t agree with transgenderism”. On camera, in social media, in front of others, he may “seem” like he’s happy. But in his own, personal private time (just by himself), I KNOW he’s very likely still depressed, folks! Depression isn’t something that one can beat, overnight! It takes YEARS! I hope and pray in the name of Jesus that Jared will find healing and COMPLETE restoration in Jesus Christ someday, the way that Walt Heyer did! For he won’t find it ANYWHERE ELSE, MARK MY WORDS! 

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

Walt Heyer is a person who’s GONE through a sex change, LIVED as a woman for over 10 years and then later came to regret it. He says when he was younger, his grandmother “affirmed” his “gender confusion”, while adding it was the worst possible thing she could’ve done for him as it then set Walt out on a long, lonely destructive path of self-mutilation with over 160+ surgeries……surgeries that were based on HIS feelings of “inadequacy”, etc. And those doctors made THOUSANDS of dollars, if not millions, off of him!

So what’s my point, here? My point is that “transition doctors” stand to make THOUSANDS and MILLIONS of doctors out of mutilating emotionally/psychologically unstable people! People that are “lost” (both spiritually and mentally). People that have NO IDEA who they really truly are and are on a path of self-denial/self-destruction!

Society says that that “transgender” people are “denying themselves” if they DON’T dress in opposite gender clothing and/if they DON’T get the sex change surgery. But the truth is, WHEN they dress in opposite gender clothing and WHEN/IF they get sex change surgery, they ARE, in EVERY sense of the word, TRULY denying themselves……..their TRUE biological self that GOD CREATED!

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” – Genesis 1:27

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” – Psalm 139:14

Satan likes to produce COUNTERFEITS! Therefore, ANYTHING that goes against the image of God, like it or not, IS a COUNTERFEIT! God’s image is biological male, biological female, traditional one man, one woman marriage, and traditional children as a RESULT of the one man, one woman traditional marriage!

Therefore, “gay marriage”, “homosexuality”, “gay adoption”, “abortion” and “transgenderism” were all DESIGNED by Satan in order to ANNIHILATE THE IMAGE OF GOD! ANNIHILATE! That simply means, Satan wanted to PICK APART AND **COMPLETELY DESTROY** THE IMAGE OF GOD! So in other words, they are PERVERSIONS/COUNTERFEITS of what God intended for the human race! 

Folks, we’re living in the LITERAL times of Isaiah 5:20, 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 bitter!” – Isaiah 5:20

We’re now living in such LIBERAL cultural times when it’s considered by many liberals to be “evil” not to “affirm” a transgender or homosexual person, it’s “evil” not to agree with “gay marriage” or abortion, just like it’s “evil” not to “affirm” your so-called “transgender child” and/or “EVIL BEYOND COMPARE” TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS, ETC.! [[[FOLKS, THIS IS SPIRITUAL MADNESS GONE WILD!]]]

So now lets go back to what Walt Heyer said about his grandmother “affirming” his gender. Something in my spirit tells me his grandmother had always secretly wanted a granddaughter. However, in spite of this, what if she had just taken him aside and gently explained to him that he was in fact, a BOY and that it was perfectly okay FOR him to be a BOY? His life might’ve turned out alot different.

He’s now happily married with a wife. However, because of all the damage he’s done “down there”, (what, with the all the mutilating surgeries and what have you), he and his wife aren’t able to have much of a marital sex life. But in fact, that’s one of the MANY long-term affects of sex changes that NOBODY is talking about……THAT and the VERY HIGH chance for infertility!

To push the “transgender thing” and/or “drag queen thing” on a teenager or full adult man or woman is bad enough. But to push it on a CHILD? ESPECIALLY a child UNDER the age of 18? WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO, FOLKS?

Please note: I am not demonizing or judging ANY of the above 4 people OR their parents! I’m just simply stating that both them AND their parents have ALL been spiritually deceived! For NO true born again Christian should be supporting things such as abortion, sodomy/homosexuality, drag queenism or transgenderism! Why? Because it goes against God’s image, God’s NATURAL order of things/God’s will, while also insinuating that God is “some sort of liar!” And folks, we simply KNOW that God’s not a liar!

“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

Folks, not ONLY is promotion of drag queenism OR transgenderism in children under 18 spiritually deceptive but it is also COMPLETE AND UTTER CHILD ABUSE! And I’m not the only one who thinks this! Here’s the words of a renown pediatrician (mother of four) who knows what she’s talking about:

Bottom Line: Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse

The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their non-dysphoric peers.

These professionals are using the myth that people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in the vast majority of cases.

Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage.

These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies.

It is time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and unite to take action.

However, it’s not JUST conservative pediatricians or psychiatrists sounding the alarm about “transgenderism” and “hormone blockers”, SEVERAL OTHERS are sounding the alarm, too! 

https://www.christianpost.com/news/values-voter-summit-panel-gender-ideology-is-large-scale-child-abuse-threat-to-basic-liberties.html

https://www.christianpost.com/news/grandmother-fighting-to-save-10-y-o-grandson-from-puberty-blockers-gender-transition-speaks-out.html

However, lets take one more critical look at this. Imagine if a person had bulimia and/or anorexia. And lets say this person was skin and bones, with a skeletal appearance. But yet, in spite of their physical reality, they felt as though they were fat, fat, fat! So some leftist ideologues came along and said, “Ya know what? It’s rather hateful to tell them the truth, that their mental ideology doesn’t fit their biological reality AND that their delusion is slowly killing them! So, in an act of *love and acceptance*, we should instead EMBRACE their psychological/mental delusion of being fat and let them get liposuction!”

Imagine how SHOCKED and HORRIFIED most outside people with a true rational sense of mind would be! Then, to add insult to injury, imagine if the PARENTS of said bulimic/anorexic, just went along with the leftist doctor’s orders, and decided to AFFIRM their child’s mental delusion! Just think of all the psychological, emotional, physical, AND spiritual harm that would do to a person (ESPECIALLY a child!) The rational world would be shocked and horrified if we just “went along” with an eating disorder patient’s delusions! So WHY then, should be forced to go along with a gender dysphoric person’s delusions? It is the same principle, folks!

And while it might not outright cause a “transgender” child to physically die (save for the case of suicide), “affirming them” IN their mental delusion does SEVERE LONG-TERM PSYCHOLOGICAL, EMOTIONAL **AND SPIRITUAL** HARM! Not only does it force them to “mutilate” their biological reality (i.e. perfectly healthy body parts), but it also sets them on a PATH to EMOTIONAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, PHYSICAL **AND** ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!

Walt Heyer (and a few others) were lucky enough to SEE THE LIGHT before it was too late for them, REPENTED, and came to a FULL saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! Walt Heyer, if he stays on the path of righteousness, will be EMBRACED by Jesus Christ in the New Jerusalem (i.e. what most would consider “Eternal Paradise”).

However, those who do NOT REPENT and DIE in that sin of transgenderism/homosexuality/going against God’s image, will suffer ETERNALLY IN THE LAKE OF FIRE! Therefore, “affirming” their mental/spiritual delusions (especially KNOWING that those delusions WILL someday lead them to sex change surgery, which THEN will eventually lead them to the eternal lake of fire if they do NOT repent of said actions) does NOT in ANY way, shape or form sound like “love” to ME!

===========

But then again, WHY should we be surprised? For transgender/drag queen promotion in children is actually HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE, brought on by Satan and demons and the entire demonic realm! People are FORGETTING that DEMONIC SPIRITS are working through the people that are promoting all that ungodly stuff! It’s not PEOPLE but SPIRITS that we’re dealing with, lest we forget:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – Ephesians 6:12

The leftist ideologues (or rather, the demonic spirits working through them) want to try to project this national image that ALMOST EVERYONE in the medical field agrees with homosexual/trans/drag queen promotion but that’s simply not true! SEVERAL rationally, conscientious medical doctors do NOT in ANY way, shape or form agree with “leftist medical practices/procedures!” And sadly, many of them are afraid of speaking out due to the fear of losing their jobs! But see folks, that’s what Satan’s modus operandi IS – FEAR! And we must NOT let fear get in the way of US telling transgendered/homosexual people THE TRUTH!

The Truth Will Set You Free: John 8: 31-32
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”

Translation? UNTIL a person, ANY person, (not JUST a homosexual/trans/cross-dressing person and/or child), comes to a FULL saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, they will FOREVER be enslaved to their OWN SIN/THEIR OWN MIND!

Remember that sin begins IN THE MIND! And once sin takes root within our HEARTS, and moves from the mind TO the heart, it then becomes (if we don’t quickly REPENT – that means, to GIVE UP the thing we’re tempted to go against God) an ACTUAL REALITY! And please remember that it is SIN ITSELF, that separates us from Jesus Christ/Eternal Salvation! That’s WHY Jesus Christ died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins!

God the Heavenly Father made humans in his own image! However, it wasn’t long before humankind decided to PROFANE that image! Satan, God’s enemy, DECEIVED humankind and successfully got them to PROFANE God’s perfect image! “Sin” entered into the world. Therefore, God the Heavenly Father had to come up with a way to RECONCILE MANKIND TO HIMSELF. So he sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins! And ALL those humans who believed and trusted in Jesus Christ FOR salvation (which means, forgiveness of sins) WOULD be saved!

So profaning God’s NATURAL, biological image of a person NOT ONLY lets Satan win but it also forces a person to BECOME THEIR OWN “god!”

  • “MY will be done”
  • “I will re-create myself in MY own image”
  • “I have no authority or ruler over me except MYSELF”
  • “I am my OWN god”
  • “I am the ruler over my own body”
  • “I will have children outside of natural, God-ordained procreation”
  • “I will get married outside the confines of God”
  • “I will create or take away life, as I please”

Notice something here, folks? Notice how abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism/cross-dressing, gay marriage, gay adoption, and every other spiritually perverse thing follows all these same type of arguments? The MAIN one being “MY will be done?”

The church of Satan’s law is “do what though wilt shall be the whole of the law”. Peel back ANY layer of the “leftist ideological onion” and that’s what ya get! Satanic law! Is THAT the type of law we want ruling over ourselves and our children? I should hope not, folks!

People have LOST their fear of the Lord! People are giving up on their Christian faith IN DROVES these days! And BECAUSE many people are giving up on their Christian faith these days, they’re giving rise to demons/demonic spirits! And these demonic spirits will STOP AT NOTHING until every last Christian is “eliminated”, one way or another! Rather it’s severe persecution, death, imprisonment, SEVERE DELUSION, etc.

Basically, it’s the Ephesians 6:12 WAR at its finest, folks! And the “child abuse” of drag queen/transgender promotion among CHILDREN under 18 is actually only a PART of it! So please, I beg you, I IMPLORE YOU, even: if you are not 100% right with Jesus Christ, then NOW”S the time to do it! Not tomorrow, not the next day, NOT next week but NOW! Because time is of the essence, folks! We NEVER know when we’re going to die!

And last not but least, a person is NOT truly set free – from ANY SIN (be it homosexuality, transgenderism, food/alcohol/drug/porn addiction, etc.) – UNTIL they find Eternal Salvation in Jesus Christ. Everything else is a COUNTERFEIT, a poor imitation that ONLY leads to the road of Eternal Destruction in the Lake of Fire! MARK MY WORDS! 

“Heavenly Father, today I’d like to pray for ALL those precious souls out there that have been DECEIVED by Satan and his demons! Please OPEN UP their eyes – spiritually – show them how much you love them and how much you’re longing to have a TRUE spiritual relationship with them but that you can’t do that if they won’t let you. SHOW THEM all the ways in which Satan, demons and secular society has LIED to them their whole lives! Show them THE TRUTH of your gospel and that you are the ONLY WAY to Eternal Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins! Please take them OUT of Satan’s grasp and bring them instead into your true, heavenly light, the light of righteousness! Give them FAITH in YOU, O Lord! And not just ANY type of faith but a STRONG, UNWAVERING FAITH in YOU! And then, once they DO gain that strong, unwavering faith in you (thank you, Lord!), use them as a heavenly vessel the way you’ve used Walt Heyer to preach YOUR TRUTH (as well as THE TRUTH about Satan’s lies about “transgender” etc.) to the masses! I say this in Jesus’s name! Amen”. 

 

We ARE The Last Generation: Biblical Proof

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

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

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

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

It reads as follows:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[NOTE: this is just a small “sample” of some of today’s news headlines]:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 
 

PORK: The Biblical Truth

Many Christians today wonder if it’s OK to eat pork or not. They’re aware that the Jews during the times of the Old Testament were FORBIDDEN to eat pork. But many Christians today try to tell themselves that, under the authority of Jesus Christ, they’re now under a NEW covenant and can eat pork whenever they choose!

They even point to the passage in Acts 10: 10-15 (Peter’s vision of the sheet with animals) as PROOF that they can eat pork. However, the “animals” in Peter’s vision were meant to signify PEOPLE, not animals! “No way, that can’t be right!” some would exclaim. However, what does the BIBLE have to say about the matter? Lets find out….Lets examine……..I’ve written a previous post on the subject, which can be found here: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/should-christians-eat-pork/

However, today’s post is gonna take a slightly DIFFERENT angle; today’s post is going to focus on the world’s OBSESSION with pork and talk about WHY it’s so prominent in today’s world!

Have you noticed lately that there’s been an INFLUX of bacon-flavored or bacon-added products? Everywhere from Pizza joints to restaurants to products in grocery stores. In fact, bacon and bacon products are EVERYWHERE these days, especially in the last month or so! And have you ever wondered WHY that is? Cause I mean, certainly this all of a sudden “Bacon/Pork Boom” didn’t come out of NOWHERE, right? 

Let me even take this a step further…. Did you know that “scientists” are now implanting PIG ORGANS into PEOPLE? If you’re a Messianic Jew/Judeo-Christian worth your salt, that fact should both shock and HORRIFY you! Because it’s ONE thing to CONSUME a pork product and it’s quite another to HAVE IT ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR BODY!

Well anyways, there was quite some controversy about this a few years ago and they were trying to BAN pig organs in transplants. Especially since there was a HIGH IMMUNE REJECTANCY RATE among the “human recipients” of such transplants! But most recently, according to a 2015 article I’ve read, they’re now trying to (gasp!) REVIVE that practice of using “pig organs” INSIDE OF PEOPLE!

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2015/10/gene-editing-method-revives-hopes-transplanting-pig-organs-people

But again, what is the ULTIMATE AGENDA here? Is it to truly help IMPROVE the health of people? NO! It is their goal to create real-like “Frankensteins”. I’m not even kidding! “Scientists” have been secretly experimenting with the concept of trans-crossed species for a LONG time, now! And the media has mostly been quiet about it – which had led to it being flown under the radar!

But let me ask you this: If pork was an “OK” thing to eat and “required” by the Lord to eat, (which it ISN’T, I assure you), don’t you think pork would THEN be hard to come by, in today’s world? And if “pig transplants into humans” was actually pleasing to the Lord (which it’s NOT, I assure you), wouldn’t it be more or less IMPOSSIBLE to have one done? Because remember: Satan HATES the laws of God! Therefore, since pig/pork is considered spiritually unclean, SATAN WANTS IT EVERYWHERE!

But no, Satan’s not just happy with people EATING pork, he wants them to BECOME PORK/MERGE WITH PORK by transplanting PIG ORGANS into them! But no, Satan doesn’t want humanity to see the truth about this! So he lies and touts it off as some sort of “medical breakthrough”. And many Christian people, who truly don’t know their God (the God of the bible) fall for it, hook, line & sinker! SAD!

In fact, look at the world and the WAY in which it’s set up, today! SUNDAY worship, CATHOLIC HOLIDAYS stemming from Paganism, PORK eating, CELEBRITY WORSHIP, SELF (SELFIE) WORSHIP? Do you see anything WRONG with that picture?

In a most recent post, I stated that the keeping of the 7th-Day Sabbath was A SIGN of the Lord’s Covenant with his people. But if I were to make a good spiritual guess, I’d say that NOT eating pork & being circumcised (if male) is ALSO a sign of the Lord’s covenant with His people. Why? Because God doesn’t change, therefore, his laws do not change!

Matthew 5: 17-18Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”

Even IN the New Millennium, people will STILL be celebrating the BIBLICAL FEASTS (Tabernacles), etc. I bet alot of people didn’t know that, huh?

Zechariah 14: 16-19 says: And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernaclesAnd it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rainAnd if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernaclesThis shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles

So therefore, if God does NOT change and his laws DO NOT change, then many Christians out there today have got some SERIOUS soul-searching to do! They’ve truly got to ask themselves if they’re willing to follow God or follow man! It is NOT an easy choice! To follow God means to DEFY all the ways of the world (including Sun-day Sabbath and pork-eating!)

It means to be looked at as “old-fashioned”, “irrelevant”, “out-dated”; to be looked at as some sort of “Judaizer”, as other lukewarm Christians CLAIM! In other words, it DEFINITELY comes with its “persecutions”. However, it also comes with its REWARDS, too! YOU can have peace of mind, YOU can know for 100% sure that YOU are following God’s will! YOU can know for 100% sure that YOUR name will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life & also that YOU will be with Jesus & the angels in the New Millennium! Just like YOU can also know that NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER!

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord” – [Isaiah 54:17]

If you’re a Christian that’s not even sure if you should be eating pork or not, that’s a good sign because it means that the Holy Spirit has already started a work in you. And what the Holy Spirit starts, He finishes, He does NOT leave something null and void! Isaiah 55:11 says the following: “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it“.

If, after reading this and my other post you’re STILL unsure about rather or not Christians should consume pork or not, then I’d highly encourage you to pray! Pray to the Lord on your knees. Pray with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Ask the Lord to reveal onto you rather pork eating is OK or not. And set all of your preconceived notions aside. TRULY seek the Lord’s will on this; fast and pray even, if you must. Ask the Lord with a totally open, totally sincere heart rather pork eating is OK or not. And the answer shall be revealed onto you.

However, IF you get back the answer that eating pork is OK, you need to then critically examine where that spiritual voice is coming from, God or Satan. Plus you need to re-examine rather God is a God that would let ONE group of people eat something and another not. You need to ask yourself if God is a fair and just God. And if he is, then WHY would he allow ONE group of people to eat something and another NOT? Think about that, folks! Really, truly think about that!

And last but not least, here’s an article on the subject that ADMITS there’s been a ‘BACON BOOM’:

BREAKING: Americans Are Obsessed With Bacon Because The Corporate Machine (I.E. SATAN HIMSELF) Wants Them To Be

https://brobible.com/guyism/article/why-americans-are-obsessed-with-bacon/

Cause remember, Satan LOVES, LOVES, LOVES what God HATES/CONSIDERS TO BE “SPIRITUALLY UNCLEAN!” Therefore, it stands to reason: if “pigs” are considered an UNCLEAN ANIMAL/FOOD in the bible, then wouldn’t Satan just LOVE EM’? Because answer: HE DOES! HE is the reason being the “Bacon Boom”, it was NOT due to no corporate entity! Satan and demons are BEHIND the Corporate Entities that are pushing this stuff (pork) on the masses!

Furthermore, did you know that pork contains nitrite, a KNOWN CARCINOGEN? A carcinogen is known as a “cancer-causing agent”. Therefore, pork/bacon can give you cancer! HA! The Lord really knew what He was doing all along, folks! He condemned pork and condemned it FOR A REASON

So you got TWO choices and Two choices, ONLY! To obey Jesus OR to obey your belly! I hope and pray that you will learn to OBEY JESUS and put away all things pork! (Trust me, your mind, heart, body and spirit will THANK you for it!) Amen. 

Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever”

Matthew 5: 17-18Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Has Amazon Alexa Become “Another Jesus?”

After coming across TWO seemingly conservative and/or Christian publications that more or less looked to Alexa as “being some sort of god“, I felt compelled to shed some TRUE biblical light on the matter!

First of, Alexa (in and of itself) is in NO way, shape or form God or A god! Lets just be VERY clear on this, folks! The bible says there’s only ONE true God (Jesus Christ Almighty). All other “gods” are just worthless “imitations!”

The first publication was from Christianity Today (of ALL places!) In THIS September 2018’s issue, on page 30, written in green bold letters, declares the following: 

ALEXA IN CT

My soul is BEYOND GRIEVED over this! My soul was HYSTERICALLY SCREAMING ON THE INSIDE when I read this! WHAT BLASPHEMY!!!!!!! ;( Since WHEN has Alexa (in and of ITSELF) become a “Savior” to anyone IN PLACE OF JESUS? This was both SHOCKING and HORRIFYING to me! But folks, it doesn’t stop THERE……..it gets worse! Much, much worse……..:( 

ANOTHER CT (Christianity Today) article from 1/6/2017 reads like THIS: “Amazon’s Alexa Delivers Your Daily Devo in Your Favorite Authors’ Voices. Okay folks, if the line “your favorite author’s voices wasn’t weird enough, it’s the very first line in that article that’s produced one of THE MOST blasphemous lines in Christianity EVER UTTERED!

“ASK ALEXA AND IT WILL BE GIVEN YOU“. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, FOLKS!?? This flies DIRECTLY in the face of JESUS’S VERY OWN WORDS in Matthew 7:7-8 (nevertheless, during one of his MOST IMPORTANT biblical sermons, the SERMON ON THE MOUNT):Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”

So what, Alexa replaces Jesus now? WHAT IS THIS? I guess it’s not surprising overall since Christianity Today has started to turn more “liberal” throughout the past few years, but that one line really tops the cake! (And what breaks my heart the most is that the author just has NO IDEA how spiritually deceived she is {or was?} when she wrote the article! I pray that Jesus Christ has mercy upon her soul!)

Another line in the article states, ‘As YouVersion put it, “Speak, and let God’s inspired Word speak to you.” At first glance, the “concept” of this might not seem so bad. But folks, we’ve got to truly examine this piece by piece, layer by layer, BIBLICALLY! God’s Written Word is supposed to speak to us in our SPIRITS, not through some artificially intelligent device that ALSO says such things such as: “Jesus Christ is a mythical being”.

In other words, the article actually encourages Christians to put their faith, trust and love into ALEXA ITSELF, instead of into Jesus Christ (where is where all their faith, trust and love SHOULD BE!) Does anyone else see the spiritual trouble in this? Most spiritual skeptics would probably tout it off as: “Oh, it’s just an app/technology, it’s not like anybody truly worships it (as in prays to it), right?” 

Well, enter the next article……more or less from Fox News (what’s supposed to be considered a highly conservative site!) The article headline (OP) from 9/1/18 reads: “MY DAUGHTER PRAYED TO ALEXA……..” 

Can anyone see what’s wrong with that? I see several things wrong, here. First off is that his daughter PRAYED to Alexa – the way a born-again Christian person would normally pray to Jesus! Therefore, if Alexa (in and of ITSELF) has now become likened onto a “new Jesus”, then Houston, we’ve got a problem!

But that’s just ONE parent who’s publicly admitted their kid prayed to “Alexa”. What about all the OTHER parents out there that let their kids do the same? What about all the so-called born-again Christians out there who’ve “innocently” (or so they told themselves, anyways) PRAYED to Alexa?

In SO many different type of ways, Alexa has become likened onto a “god” or a “new Jesus”. And if that doesn’t send spiritual shivers down one’s spine, then I don’t know what would! Many people – even Christians alike – are now starting to treat Alexa “as if she were an actual person!” But again, it all goes back to the artificial technology thing. It’s one of the most powerful spiritual deceptors!

Satan likely asked his demons: “How can we make talking to demons both innovative, affordable, fun, convenient, and ADDICTIVE?”. “I know”, a demon likely said. “*Family-Friendly Artificial intelligence*”. And thus, the “Alexa” and “Siri” etc. was born! And as time goes on, the “technology” is becoming more and more advanced! And oddly enough, the more “advanced” the technology becomes, the more “human” it tries to make ITSELF look and the more “addicting” it becomes!

That’s why I say if you have an “Alexa”, UNPLUG IT!!! Let Satan and his demons know that you will NOT take part in their ungodly schemes to SUCK AWAY YOUR SOUL! And IF you see an ad promoting “Christian programming” on Alexa, PAY IT NO ATTENTION! For it’s Satan’s hope that you will USE Alexa’s “Christian programming” INSTEAD OF reading your bible, in the hopes that he’ll be able to DECEIVE YOU AWAY FROM A TRUE SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST! Cause remember folks, that’s what this technology was *DESIGNED* to do – to take you AWAY from Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Now, I know there’s probably gonna be some Christians out there who disagree with me, (specifically those who play BotRadioNetwork and what not). But folks, I’m telling you, this “talking A.I. thing” is one THE MOST POWERFUL spiritual deceptors that Satan has on the market! Why? Because it seems so “innocent”. It doesn’t have glowing red eyes or a “demonic voice”. It doesn’t “openly” (as far as I know) glorify Satan. And yet, it spiritually glorifies Satan all the same. Why? Because instead of Jesus Christ himself that we’re talking to, we’re talking to this “device” that Satan only WANTS us to think is “human”.

Furthermore, if ALL a Christian is doing is playing BotRadioNetwork on their “Alexa” and NOT reading the bible and NOT spending time in reflection and in prayer, then they’re listening to that “Christian programming” in vain, do you see where I’m going with this, folks? As a human species, we have short attention spans. We can listen to ALL the Christian programming we want to but if we’re also not APPLYING it to our LIVES, then the Christian programming and us listening to it has done us no service! Make sense? And not only that, but do YOU trust Alexa to give you the CORRECT bible passage (and its context) from the CORRECT bible version (KJV)? 

Here is just a random online photo I found which pretty much illustrates the point that I’m trying to make throughout this entire post (about the “heavenly glorifying” OF Alexa by “lukewarm Christians/people in general”):

ALEXA WITH ANGEL WINGS

And I can see right now where Satan is going with *allowing* all the “Christian programming” on Alexa……He wants to TWIST that Christian programming to HIS ungodly glory! And how does he do that, folks? Easy. When Christian people (and families) put all their glory INTO the Christian programming (and Alexa) ITSELF rather than into JESUS CHRIST (where all the glory giving BELONGS!) He can also utilize the Alexa to tout off watered-down or incorrect bible versions or passages, as well as “liberalize” and “relevise” the gospel!  

And believe it or not, both “Siri” and “Alexa” were actually “testing grounds” for a much BIGGER spiritual project that Satan had up his sleeve – The “Image of the Beast” and “real-life Skynet”. Okay, so what’s Skynet, some of you might be asking? Skynet is the name of the A.I. company in The Terminator movies with Arnold Schwarzenegger. [And if you haven’t watched the movies, I’d highly recommend going to Youtube to watch the movie TRAILERS, so you know and can see firsthand what I’m talking about here: especially part 3 and part 6?]

But anyways, Skynet (or the “concept” of it, anyways) is actually a REAL organization, folks! So what does that mean in plain English, folks? It means that they – the elite – knew ALL ALONG that robots/machines/Androids would someday take over the world (and natural-born humans) and thus, developed an organization that has attempted (and is attempting) to “control the tech”. However, as it is in The Terminator movies, the “tech” will someday SUPERCEDE all human intelligence, and then improve on its OWN intelligence, until it spirals out of control. This is what’s known as “The Singularity”.

So how do “Siri”, “Ok Google” and “Alexa” fit in to all of this? Simple. They are part of the building blocks that Satan will use to “build on”. Think of ALL the plugged-in Alexas there are in the world today, for instance. Then imagine all the CYBER-KINETIC POWER that generates. And that’s just a small PIECE of the puzzle that will someday soon become known as “the real-like Skynet”.

Okay, lets delve a little deeper into this for a moment. Siri, Ok Google and Alexa are just “spiritual doorways”. And what lies beyond those doorways is nothing good, trust me on this! Sophia is the Greek Word for “Wisdom”. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the latest A.I. Android robot is named “Sophia”.

However, what we need to understand here is that Sophia, Han, Bina48, etc. run on what’s called “block-chain technology”. In other words, ALL Android robots are “plugged into” and run on the same “computer database”. And it’s actually a DE-centralized centralized computer “database” – meaning, a centralized database that is DE-centralized and isn’t solely controlled by any one gov’t or group of people – run on Quantam computers, the FASTEST computers known to man. One Android can acquire skills from another Android and so on and so forth (real-life Skynet, anyone?) And each Android BECOMES SMARTER & SMARTER over time.

Now, do Siri, Alexa and Ok Google ALSO run on “block-chain technology?” Your guess is as good as mine. But given as how Alexa “acquires” such a GROWING number of skills in such a SHORT amount of time would lead me to believe that they ARE using some sort of “block-chain technology”. But yet, one thing is apparent, here; Siri, Alexa and Ok Google will no doubt play a HUGE ROLE in Mark of the Beast/Image of the Beast Technology. In fact, I can picture the Amazon Alexa interacting with the “Mark of the Beast” and the “Image of the Beast” and vice versa.

That being said, are YOU saved in the name of Jesus? If YOU were to die tomorrow, do YOU know for sure that YOU’D go to heaven? If not, then why not? What do YOU plan to do to change that? Folks, we NEVER know when we’re gonna die! It could be tomorrow, next week, next year, 15 years from now, WHENEVER! And once we die, that’s IT! There’s no purgatory, no riding a spiritual subway train for years, no becoming your neighbor’s potted plant, no beer and pool party!

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”

 

When Prophets FEARED: God’s Response

Hebrews 11:6-8 states: “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 himBy faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went”

All the great prophets of the bible had FAITH! No doubt about it! And I think alot of us tend to forget that. For when evil PREVAILS, many a Christian (myself included at times, I admit) can feel SO depressed and SO disheartened and discouraged that it’s hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel, sort’ve speak. Things can just FEEL so helpless, at times! (Believe me, I know!)

So what are we as Christians to do when it feels like the whole entire world and society as well as certain “life circumstances” are against us? Cause we KNOW from the bible that many of the Lord’s prophets (as listed above) had FAITH but were there ever any times when the Lord’s prophets were AFRAID? And the answer is YES! Let us examine:

1). Psalm 38 (written by David – likely before he was King and “on the run” from King Saul) declares:

O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me. My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation”. 

2). And then there is the case of Elijah, who was “on the run” from Jezebel (& King Ahab) after Jezebel had threatened his life! We read about this in 1 Kings 19: 1-4

And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time. And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers”

3). And let us also not forget Jonah, who FLED from the presence of the Lord when the Lord commanded him to go to Nineveh, a totally EVIL city that had been founded by NIMROD (Noah’s great-grandson!)

This is recorded in Jonah 1: 1-3Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, ‘Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me’. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord”

4). Moses – He was AFRAID to go before the people of Israel to inform them that the Lord God told him that He was gonna try to “secure their permanent release from Egypt” by (gasp!) “going before Pharaoh”! Why? Because he was afraid the people wouldn’t believe him, etc.! 

Exodus 3:10 records the Lord’s decree unto Moses: “Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt”. So here, the Lord’s COMMANDING Moses to go to Pharaoh, one of THE MOST intimidating characters in Eygpt! So, understandably, Moses is a just a little bit “nervous” over this. 

Next verse (11): “And Moses said unto God, ‘Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?’

Verse 12: The Lord’s response to Moses: “And he said, ‘Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain”. 

Verse 13: Moses’s response back to the Lord: “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?”

Verse 14: Lord’s response to Moses once more: “And God said unto Moses, ‘I Am That I Am’: and he said, ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you'”.

Verse 15: Lord’s additional response to Moses: “And God said moreover unto Moses, ‘Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations”.

So here we got FOUR separate instances in which the prophets of the Lord were either SCARED/AFRAID (David & Moses), FLEEING from ENEMIES of the Lord (Elijah) or FLEEING *FROM* the presence of the Lord (Jonah). And though there may be other instances in which prophets/followers of the Lord were afraid, those are the top three mentioned in the bible. But guess what, folks?

5). EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was AFRAID in the Garden of Gethsemane:

Matthew 26: 36-39Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt“.

 

So here in the above passage, we see that Jesus is (gasp!) AFRAID! This is the ONE and ONLY time throughout the entire New Testament when Jesus is TRULY afraid! Why? Because he KNOWS that soon, when he is crucified for the sins of mankind, that he’ll temporarily be OUTSIDE OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER (since the Heavenly Father is SO holy, that he can not “JOIN WITH/CONNECT TO” any “sin” – and so thus – when Jesus KNEW that he was to BECOME “SIN”/THE “SACRIFICIAL LAMB” FOR ALL OF MANKIND, He, the Holy Son of God, knew that he’d be temporarily separated from the Holy Divine presence of the Heavenly Father AS he, the Holy Son of God, “BECAME SIN for ALL”).

Not to mention that Jesus was likely afraid of dying! He was BORN into a human lifetime. He was fully God AND fully human. He knew all about living as a “human” and what all humans experience during their “lifetimes”. But what he likely did NOT yet know at this point in time was about the ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OF DEATH! He had been born and lived as a human but yet, he had never DIED as one! He was likely afraid, for this was something he had NEVER, EVER experienced before and likely really didn’t know WHAT all to expect, at that point in time.

Luke 22:44 records: “And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground

 

So here in Luke 22:44, we can see that Jesus was SO deathly afraid and SO anguished, that BEADS OF SWEAT were POURING to the ground, AS he prayed IN ANGUISH and with GREAT, GREAT ANXIETY!

However, WHEN Jesus added the Nevertheless, not as I wilt but as thou wilt to his highly anguished prayer, he was more or less saying that he ONLY wanted the cup of suffering to pass from him IF it was God the Heavenly Father’s will. Otherwise, he more or less said that he was WILLING to go through all the suffering he was about to endure (even AS terrifyingly AFRAID as he was, at that time), IF it was the Heavenly Father’s will, which it WAS! That is what’s known as “having faith in times of fear!” And it’s no doubt something that we ALL need to know and learn how to do!

So there you have it, folks! EVEN JESUS HIMSELF was greatly afraid at ONE point during his time on Earth! So what does that tell ya, people? It tells us that no matter HOW afraid you are, now matter HOW terrified or full of “anguish” that you feel over life/certain life circumstances, and/or no matter HOW disheartened you feel over something/someone, JESUS UNDERSTANDS! The PROPHETS OF OLD understand! JESUS’S DISCIPLES understand! For they THEMSELVES were once in YOUR shoes! So remember that, folks!

[[Let us not ALSO forget that Matthew 26:56 records “But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and FLED“. Translation? EVEN Jesus’s own DISCIPLES were afraid, at one point!]]

But now that we know HOW and WHY the following four biblical characters were afraid (Jesus being one of them), how did God (the Heavenly Father) respond to each of the four? Let us turn to the bible for the answer:

1). DAVID:

1 Samuel 31: 3-4 records: “And the battle went sore against Saul, and the archers hit him; and he was sore wounded of the archers. Then said Saul unto his armour-bearer, Draw thy sword, and thrust me through therewith; lest these uncircumcised come and thrust me through, and abuse me. But his armour-bearer would not; for he was sore afraid. Therefore Saul took a sword, and fell upon it”. 

Translation? Saul was punished seven-fold for trying to pursue and kill David (the “future king of Israel”). Saul had his “kingdom” stripped from him and given to another (which was David), and fell upon his own sword (dying a most disgraceful death), not to mention many other things.

In fact, in 2 Samuel 3, we read: “Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker“. Translation? There was a long “permanent conflict” between those who were loyal to King Saul and those who were loyal to David. And in the end, those loyal to Saul became fewer & fewer in number, while those loyal to David increased by “leaps and bounds”.

And David, when he REPENTED of his sins, (namely, the sin of “adultery” with Uriah’s wife Bethsheba, and then later having Uriah killed), he is later rewarded with yet ANOTHER son by Bethsheba (which was Solomon), among many other things.

In fact, 2 Samuel 12:8 records THIS: “And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things”.

Translation? When King David REPENTED of his sins and told the Lord point-blank ABOUT his fear & his anxiety, and had FAITH in the Lord’s forgiveness, the Lord rewarded him seven-fold with long life, a lasting kingdom and “over-abundance”.

Translation? God is there telling David that if what David attained had NOT been enough for him, that the Lord would’ve given onto him MUCH, MUCH MORE! Wow! What a statement! But then again, we only have to flip through the books of the bible to see HOW the Lord God BLESSES THOSE WHO REPENT OF THEIR FEAR(S) AND COME CLEAN ABOUT THEIR FEAR(S) AND/OR THEIR SINFUL ACTIONS!

2). ELIJAH:

1 Kings 19: 5-9 records:And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eatAnd he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.

And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of GodAnd he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, ‘What doest thou here, Elijah’?”

In 1 Kings 19:14, Elijah responds AGAIN and says to the Lord: “…..’I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away'”.

And the response from the Lord is found in 1 Kings 19: 15-18: “And the Lord said unto him, ‘Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room. 

And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him‘”. 

In other words, the Lord here is informing Elijah that he’s not the ONLY ONE who adheres to the Lord’s decrees……..that there are SEVEN THOUSAND Israelites who had NOT bowed down unto Baal, nor had kissed him (as if to imply that those who worshiped Baal actually KISSED his idol/image or something?)

Therefore, the Lord here is letting Elijah know that he’s NOT ALONE! This must’ve been a very, very comforting confirmation for Elijah while he lived out the rest of his days. That no doubt BOOSTED Elijah’s faith in the Lord. And when Elijah knew he was about to be taken from the Earth, he informed his “apprentice”, EliSHAH that he would soon be taken from him. And as he and EliSHAH were on the River Jordan…….

2 Kings 11 records:As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind

Conclusion? Even though this “highly powerful prophet of God” fled for his LIFE from Jezebel, God REWARDED him for “listening to the angel” and “coming back to service for the Lord”. God was SO pleased with Elijah and his faith after that, that he took him up to Heaven (much like Enoch!)

3). JONAH:

In Jonah 3:10, we read:And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not”. 

Okay, so in above passage, Jonah (albeit reluctantly), goes into the city of Nineveh and preaches the Lord’s message to the people! And as a result, THEY REPENT! All of them, EVEN THE KING! Wow!

But yet, Jonah was still a little “perturbed” at that point in time as Jonah 4:1-6 records:

But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry. And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O Lord, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil. Therefore now, O Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live”.

Then said the Lord, ‘Doest thou well to be angry?’ So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city. And the Lord God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd

Translation? Jonah kind’ve sort’ve takes a “chill pill”, realizes he shouldn’t be so angry and goes to “chill out” while he awaits to see what becomes of the city (if anything) of Nineveh. And the Lord God is SO PLEASED with Jonah for “taking a breather” that he decides to help Jonah stay cool in the hot, humid climate by placing a shadow gourd over his head to help him stay cool. And when Jonah saw this, the bible records that he was EXCEEDINGLY GLAD!

But again, only by FAITH did Jonah go into that dreadfully evil city, in the first place! Even if it was somewhat of a reluctant faith, it was faith nonetheless!

4). MOSES:

Exodus 10:28-29And Pharaoh said unto him, ‘Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die’. And Moses said, ‘Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more’“. 

Exodus 14:8 “And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand”

Exodus 14:10And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were SORE AFRAID: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord

Exodus 14: 13-14And Moses said unto the people, ‘Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever, The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace

Exodus 14: 26-31 “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 themBut 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. And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant Moses”

5). JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF:

In Luke 22:42, Jesus is SO afraid, that he starts praying the following: Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done”

So how does God respond, you might wonder? The answer comes one verse later, in Luke 22:43! “And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him”.

Therefore, the Lord God Heavenly Father SAW Jesus’s anxiety, HEARD his highly anguished prayer and sent one of the angels from heaven to strengthen him.

In Mark 16:6, we read: “And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him“. So here, we see that Jesus had resurrected from the dead (thus, ending the so-called time of “temporary separation” from God, the Heavenly Father!)

And later on in Mark, we read in Mark 16:19 “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God”

Therefore, Jesus was blessed with ETERNAL GLORY for all the “submissive” fear and suffering he had endured the night BEFORE his crucifixion, as well as the day OF his crucifixion, as well as the time right AFTER his crucifixion and right BEFORE his resurrection. And the time between his resurrection and ascension up to Heaven, was not only to PROVE his words that testified of God the Heavenly Father but also (I think) for the Lord God to give him some time once more to spend with his “friends”, his disciples.

5). As for Jesus’s disciples, they were no doubt “rewarded” by God for their FAITH by increasing the Lord’s kingdom “by leaps & bounds”. And not only that but their names will be recorded ON THE WALLS of the heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” today! How COOL is that? 😉

FINAL CONCLUSION: ALL prophets of the Lord had times when they fell short of the mark of righteousness. But the preceding 5 biblical characters up above (including the 6th group, the disciples) ALL feared at one point! However, when they REPENTED of that fear (in their hearts) and SUBMITTED to the Lord’s will INSTEAD, they were ALL BLESSED!

David’s kingdom was determined to be eternal by God, Moses successfully lead the ENTIRE nation of Israel out of Egypt, the city of Nineveh was spared God’s Wrath at the preaching of Jonah, Elijah restored people to the Lord and was taken up to heaven, plus Jesus successfully carried out God’s will on Earth by being crucified, etc.! Now just think for a minute if any of those biblical characters, after initially hesitating at the first, had instead acted on their FEAR, instead of their FAITH? Can you IMAGINE? 

So what can get gather from all this? Whenever one FEARS, HAVE FAITH! And remember the prophets that were before you! Even THEY were scared, sometimes! But yet, WHEN they submitted to God/the Lord’s will, they came to find that FEAR IS UNNECESSARY! It serves NO PURPOSE! Plus it actually TAKES ONE *AWAY* FROM GOD!

I close with the following biblical quote in the hopes that it will enlighten you and STRENGTHEN your faith and your spiritual walk in Christ:

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

 

 

 

 

Is The Bible In YOUR Diet?

In a previous post entitled:  “Is Jesus in YOUR Diet?”, I talked about the importance of maintaining a healthy spiritual AND physical diet (while emphasizing the importance of a healthy physical diet). In THIS post, I’m gonna discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy SPIRITUAL diet!

“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” – John 6:50-51

 

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” – Matthew 4:4

 

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread [spiritual bread of Jesus Christ] shall live for ever” – John 6:57-58

 

“And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ” – 1 Corinthians 10: 2-4

 

It’s very important that we spend time reading the WRITTEN Word of God (the bible!) For it is our spiritual nourishment! And without “time in the written word”, our spiritual walk with Christ begins to SUFFER! Why? Because we tend to think during those times & moments: “I don’t NEED to read the bible, I ALREADY know what’s in there!!!!!” and/or “What’s the POINT of reading the bible, I ALREADY know what the BASIC tenets of the faith are, so need I to know ANY MORE?” (OUCH!) 

For some, it can be kind’ve depressing to read about all the wars & battles in the Old Testament (“why so many deaths?”) and/or to read about what happened to Jesus during his consequent “arrest”, “trial” and “execution”. However, it’s important for us these days to READ about all those things and REMEMBER them and remember how GOOD (loving but firm) God is!

The Israelites winning the Old Testament battles were precursors to YOU AND ME (Christians/Messianic Jews/The Lord’s people) winning spiritual battles TODAY against the enemy! And all that stuff that happened to Jesus in the New Testament was PROPHESIED in the Old Testament!

And all those things HAD to happen, in order for Jesus to SHOW US that he is who HE says HE is, and that the written word – the bible – is itself what IT says IT is – the 100% complete written testimony of the Word of God [The Word of God ofcourse being Jesus Christ Almighty/HIMSELF!]

If your bible’s been collecting dust on the bookshelf, NOW’S the time to take it back out, dust it off & began re-reading it! If you’re not sure where to start, the Gospel of John is a good place or the Book of Acts. And if you prefer the Old Testament over the New, you can always start with Genesis, from the VERY beginning! And if you live in a country where bibles are forbidden or hard to come by, you can always PRAY that Jesus will show you dreams & visions about what the bible talks about! 

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” – Matthew 7: 7-8

 

I’m gonna tell you guys my own personal experience about what happened to me during all the times in my life when I did NOT read the bible every single day and the long-lasting effects it had on me.

One of the VERY first things I’ve noticed is that it starts out SO SMALL. I’d go to read one or two chapters and would suddenly feel very, very sleepy and couldn’t keep my eyes open. And then, the next day, I’d try to re-read that same passage and would AGAIN start to feel really, really sleepy. “What is the DEAL?”, I thought. “This is much too much to be coincidence! WHAT is going on, here?”

And I kept feeling this IMMENSE sense of guilt; thinking that the problem was ME! In other words, I kept internalizing it, thinking it must be MY fault if “I” kept feeling really, really sleepy while picking up the bible and reading it. And yet, when was the last time I had felt really, really sleepy while reading one of my favorite novels or the like? (Busted!)

So then, I went through this mental checklist of sorts: Am I bored by what I read? No. Did I get enough sleep last night? Probably not. Am I trying to read TOO MUCH of the bible at a time? Maybe”. And yet, NONE of those answers seemed to answer my question 100% satisfactorily as to WHY it kept happening…….

I felt tired, depressed, lethargic, moody. I became more “worldly”, and more concerned with the latest movies, books and TV shows, rather that on what Jesus and scripture said. Ah yes, Jesus……..the only begotten Son of God who died on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins?

The one who saved me during my N.D.E. around 23 months or age or so and beyond? Sadly, he seemed to be the furthest thing from my mind as I dwelved into the “haven’t read the bible in a quite a long time” club! And then there was the “guilt factor”: “well, I haven’t read the bible in so long, how could Jesus ever forgive me?”

But yet, that’s when I realized something: when we don’t feel like reading the bible (for WHATEVER REASON), there is some HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE going on by Satan and his demons. But yet, Satan is good at getting us to turn it AGAINST OURSELVES by BLAMING OURSELVES for it, INSTEAD of blaming HIM/his demons for it, where all the blame should rightfully be! For if HE and his demons hadn’t first tempted us AWAY from reading the bible, then we would’ve (theoretically) been able to actually READ the bible without any problems!

Another reason we know it’s HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE is because of modern-day news stories like THIS

1). School told they can’t have “bible class”:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-public-school-bible-class-court-20170423-story.html

2). Teacher says student can’t read bible during “free reading time”:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/05/05/teacher-tells-student-cant-read-bible-in-my-classroom.html

3). Group wants bible removed from POW/MIA Display, despite YEARS of tradition:

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/04/07/advocacy-group-pushes-remove-bible-pow-mia-display.html

And folks, that’s just a small sample. There’s many, many stories about “removing bibles” or “bible classes” that I don’t have time to get into, right now. Therefore folks, it stands to reason: if there’s such STRONG drive to REMOVE BIBLES from school and public military displays, what makes anyone think that there’s also not a spiritual war happening in your VERY HEART over the bible and its precious contents?

When’s the last time you read ANY part of your bible? Be honest with yourself. It’s probably been awhile, hasn’t it? (And if you live in a country where a bible is not freely available, my heart goes out to you! I pray in the name of Jesus that you will somehow get access to the holy scriptures somehow!) And for those of you who LIVE in a country where a bible is freely available, WHAT ARE  YOU WAITING FOR? 

Folks, mark my words, the bible will someday be officially “outlawed”. There’ll likely come a time in Westernized nations where owning a bible is ILLEGAL……Yup, that’s right. ILLEGAL! (Especially in the New World/One World Gov’t system they’re trying so hard to set up right now!)

So READ your bibles front to back from Genesis to Revelation while you still can! Because you NEVER, EVER know when that “right” will be taken away from you! I’m DEAD SERIOUS on this, folks! Furthermore, if you KNOW what’s in the scriptures and what isn’t, you’re FAR less likely to be DECEIVED by Satan and his “workers” (both demonic and human). 

Many Christians today have time for Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, going to the movies, dinner with friends, Redbox movies, sports games, reading their favorite novels, etc., but yet, they DON’T seem to have the time to read the bible! They tell themselves that it’s too laborious, that it’s too much work, that they just don’t have the time to!” Well folks, what if Jesus were to be standing before one of those folks (myself included) and he told them someday that while he’d “like” to let them into “New Jerusalem”, he “just didn’t have the time to?” OUCH! 

In order for Jesus Christ to someday confess our name before the Heavenly Father and the angels, we must KNOW him personally; we must have a spiritual relationship with him. And the very BEGINNING of the foundation of that relationship comes by FAITH.

And according to Romans 10:17 in the New Testament: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“. In other words, we must READ (& FULLY ABSORB) the written word of God in order to HEAR IT IN OUR MINDS, HEARTS & SPIRITS! 

Sure, we could ALWAYS theoretically have faith in Jesus due to Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Lions Den or Moses parting the Red Sea, etc. But there’s just something about READING about it in print that ENHANCES the experience, as IF we were really there at the time of the great happenings of the bible!

Seeing it in movie form or listening to it on audio-book actually DETRACTS from the experience in a way since those two platforms make it an unemotional, INDIRECT experience. But reading it OURSELVES? That MAKES it a personal, emotional and DIRECT experience, almost as if reading somebody’s personal diary or autobiography of all the events that took place! Now think about this for moment: What makes reading someone’s diary or autobiography more PERSONAL to you? If someone ELSE reads it to you or IF you read it YOURSELF? Think about it, folks! 

Many Christians today based their “bible theology” on FEELINGS & EMOTIONS – what they FEEL to be true or SHOULD be true – other than what’s FACT! And that’s truly sad! For if these folks would read their bibles more often, they’d come to realize just how WRONG they are/were in their “assumptions!”

Imagine if YOU wrote YOUR own autobiography, only to have one your “proclaimed fans” come forth later and say: “No, this is NOT what they mean here……they in fact mean THIS” as IF that person knew you and/or knew your “thoughts”, personally! Wouldn’t you be so offended by that? I know “I” would!!!!!! So it is with God and his holy, written word. It’s “written in stone”, it doesn’t NEED to be interpreted or re-interpreted, as it were. Let the bible speak for itself! 

But going back to the Romans 10:17 passage once more: “”So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.

Some of you may be wondering what “hearing by the word of God” means. Well, Jesus Christ himself IS the Word of God. John 1:1-2 in the New Testament confirms this. Therefore, “hearing BY the word of God” simply means to hear it BY means of Jesus. And to hear it BY Jesus (NOWADAYS) means to hear Jesus speak through the WRITTEN WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE!) Capeche? (Note: if you’re lucky enough, you can usually find a King James Bible/KJV bible with words of Jesus IN RED!)

So, for example, if you read the Book of Matthew, Chapters 5-7 in the New Testament (known as Jesus’s “Sermon on the Mount”), it’s not hard to “spiritually hear” Jesus’s voice in that sermon, as though you were one of the actual witnesses that were there that day. You can read Jesus’s words in those chapters and just KNOW without a doubt what Jesus was trying to say (and also what he was NOT trying to say!) 

And the book of John tells us exactly who Jesus is and where he came from, no questions asked. Genesis tells us how everything in the universe was made (more or less). In fact, each book of the bible has a “story” behind it. An interesting “tidbit” of God’s autobiography to the world; THE MOST amazing autobiography (and love letter) ever written in ALL of existence to ALL of mankind – those who choose to adhere to its contents, that is! Each “book” serves as a “chapter” of the Almighty’s “autobiography”. Question is, do WE as Christians fully accept it? “I” do! 

I don’t believe as a Judeo-Christian that I can just pick and choose which parts of the bible I believe and want to read and what parts not. What’s the point in that? Because the bible (philosophically speaking) is either ALL TRUE or it’s not, right folks? Yet I submit to you today that EVERY SINGLE WORD of the bible is true! EVERY. SINGLE. WORD! [Note: Don’t get me started though on how the words “alone” and “Easter” were improperly added – more about that in a different post]. 

2 Timothy 3: 16-17All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works”.

In other words, lets say I’ve read the bible front to back (from Genesis to Revelation) a TON of times. But yet, I haven’t read it in a while. Especially the Sermon on the Mount. And lets say I’m holding a slight grudge against someone. Therefore, 2 Timothy 3:16 informs us that NOT ONLY is all scripture given by inspiration of God but that it’s our “golden measuring stick” of righteousness! 

Therefore, only by SCRIPTURE am I (the so-called Christian holding a grudge) able to see the “sin” of my grudge and the “proper” way to deal with it. Make sense, folks? That’s WHY it’s ever-so-important that we read our bibles (even if it’s only a couple chapters at a time) on a continual basis so that WE can know what “sin(s)” we must repent of and the proper, spiritual way to act when we’re living out our lives FOR CHRIST! 

Some Christians have plenty of TIME to read the bible but they get BORED of reading the bible. That, my friend, is yet ANOTHER type of DEMONIC ATTACK happening against that person whenever that happens! Or have you ever read a certain passage and a voice within your mind started to say: “Blah, blah, blah, I already know how this one’s gonna end?” YET ANOTHER type of demonic attack! There’s SO MANY TYPES of demonic attacks against us that Satan uses that most of the time, we’re not even FULLY AWARE of it! 

In fact, not sure if this’ll help anyone out there or not, but here’s all the types of “demonic attacks” (by means of “distractions”) that have happened to me most times I’ve tried sitting down and reading the bible:

1). Thoughts about food/eating would pop into my head

2). I’d see an advertisement for something “cool-looking” at the bottom of the web page I was looking at for this blog (as in, end times news headlines)

3). I would start to sometimes feel really, really sleepy or suddenly get a “throbbing headache” out of nowhere

4). I would get chronically indecisive about WHAT part of the bible I wanted to read, which would then make me give up after awhile

5). Somebody would text me or call me on the phone just AS I was getting started on reading a chapter of the bible

6). I’d suddenly worry about my finances (for no conceivable reason) and would frantically log on to my laptop to check my bank statement

7). I’d get tempted to read a novel, instead OR to log online to check my work schedule

8). ETC.

Conclusion? Distractions are SPIRITUALLY DEADLY! Satan has no doubt tried to put as many “distractions” into our paths as human possibly in order to keep us from reading the written word of God (the bible).

But ya know what, folks? The Book of Revelation even offers a SPECIFIC BLESSING to those who read it:

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” – [Revelation 1:3]

But again, I DON’T think that just stands for the Book of Revelation only but for the ENTIRE BIBLE ITSELF! I believe that there is a SPECIFIC BLESSING for each and every Christian when they not only READ the bible but fully absorb its contents into their HEARTS, SOULS, MINDS & SPIRITS!

In fact, Romans 8:13 suggests that we must STARVE the flesh in order to FEED the spirit:

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”.

Okay, so what does that even MEAN, some may ask? What does it mean to “feed the spirit?” Just like what does it mean to “starve the flesh?” 

It means that we must put JESUS FIRST in our lives, even BEFORE our need of food, etc. Now, does that mean we should STARVE OURSELVES and stop eating food, altogether? Ofcourse not! It only means that from time to time, we should fast!

To “fast” means to go for a short period WITHOUT food. And during that time, we’re supposed to do nothing BUT pray & read God’s written word (the bible). This time can be anywhere from 6-24 hours, depending on one’s personal preference. Back in ancient biblical times, this is HOW the Prophets of Old obtained “visions”, “wisdom” or “answered prayers” from the Lord! By withholding physical “pleasures” such as food and showing God that God was FIRST in their lives! 

But it’s amazing JUST HOW FAST a person can “stray” from God/Jesus just by not reading their bible in awhile or just happening to be around people that don’t love or honor God! That’s why reading our bibles (and OFTEN) is how we stay CLOSE to Jesus, stay IN THE SPIRITUAL KNOW, become ON-GUARD against any and all SPIRITUAL ATTACKS, etc.! The bible is our MANUAL, our own “instruction book” of righteousness……even part of OUR SPIRITUAL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY – SATAN! (The Bible is FOOD FOR VERY *SOULS!*) 

TRUST ME FOLKS, what the Devil fears THE MOST is you reading your bible – AND PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE! So remember that, folks! Get to reading your bibles again, PUT IT INTO ACTUAL PRACTICE IN YOUR LIVES and spiritually PUNCH Satan where it hurts!
