When You Feel Like Giving Up: How To Overcome

So have you ever gotten to that critical point in your spiritual walk with Jesus Christ where you “ALMOST” felt like giving up? Where you were just OVERWHELMED TO TEARS with all the stuff for Christ that you have to do in your day to day spiritual walk (note: only Jesus himself knows the particulars?) Where you just felt so HOPELESS, WEAK, POWERLESS? Where you were almost certain that if you were to die today, Jesus would likely NOT (at this point, anyways) welcome you into the eternal heavenly kingdom, someday?

Folks, we’ve ALL been there at some point or another. We’ve all gone through our “dark valleys of spiritual anxiety” from time to time. In fact, our spiritual walk with Christ hasn’t ALWAYS been easy. But folks, realize THIS: our spiritual walk with Christ wasn’t MEANT to be “easy”. For if it were “easy”, then EVERYONE would do it. But BECAUSE it’s hard and not easy, ONLY the Lord’s select few will make it through all the “trials and testings” (and later on receive ETERNAL REWARDS for doing so!)

Many Christians here in the year 2018 and on, say that they are now under a HUGE dark cloud of SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION……..spiritual persecution that’s the WORST SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION OF THEIR VERY ***LIVES!*** In other words, many Christians feel like it’s the WORST spiritual persecution that they have EVER, EVER experienced in ALL OF THEIR EXISTENCE! Basically, every temptation that they “could” be tempted with, many Christians now say they’re being tempted with.

There’s this sense of “spiritual heaviness” over many Christians these days. But I know that it IS a work of darkness brought on by Satan himself and the “demonic realm”. It is an executed attack by which the enemy (Satan) is attempting to throw poison fiery (spiritual) darts at EVERY born-again Christian (myself included) from EVERY which direction! However, I trust in Jesus as Lord & Savior! I have started to learn how to pray in the spirit and it’s VERY empowering!

Therefore, WHENEVER you start to feel hopeless, stressed, depressed, discouraged, full of anxiety/fear, etc., there’s SEVERAL things you need to do:

1). Realize that it’s a SPIRIT you’re dealing with, A DEMONIC SPIRIT and NOT so much a “feeling” or “emotion”, in and of itself.

2). Realize that you have POWER & AUTHORITY over such “unclean spirits” in the name of Jesus Christ!

3). Don’t be afraid to EXERCISE your power & authority against ALL unclean spirits! Say & loudly declare: “I am cleansed by the blood of the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. In the name of Jesus Christ, I REBUKE THEE!

4). Get rid of ALL demonic objects and/or “idols” in your home and car that might possibly be giving Satan/demons the “legal” spiritual right to “spiritually harass” you [Please Note that’s there’s a HUGE DIFFERENCE between spiritual “attack” and spiritual “harassment!”] 

Spiritual attack is defined as Spiritual PERSECUTION/TESTING. Such as, you lose your job, someone in your family dies, you get arrested for sharing the gospel, your bestfriend suddenly turns on you for no reason, etc. In other words, circumstances that are BEYOND your control! However, when you TRUST in Christ, you will have TOTAL CONTROL over the situation!

Spiritual harassment, on the other hand, is an attack by Satan/demons in which you technically DO have control, at the onset. Let me explain. Whenever you WILLFULLY CHOOSE to have “idols” or “demonic objects” in your home (ouija boards, tarot cards, animal carvings/figurines, “Catholic statutes, etc.), that gives Satan/demons the “legal” spiritual right to “occupy your home/car” or wherever the demonic objects are.

And by HAVING the demonic objects in place (in your immediately vicinity, be it your car, home or workplace, etc), you are more or less GIVING Satan/demons LEGAL spiritual control of your “territory” and/or the LEGAL spiritual right to SPIRITUALLY HARASS YOU! Because BEFORE you brought those things into your home, Satan/demons had no real power against you (the born-again Christian believer).

But AFTER you brought those cursed things into your home, you GAVE UP any initial power & authority you might’ve had over Satan and demons in the name of Jesus! That’s WHY you need to get rid of all those things! Get rid of all the demonic objects and IDOLS in your home, pray for Jesus to forgive you of having had such things in the first place and DON’T LOOK BACK! Because DEMONIC ATTACK AND/OR HARASSMENT is a REAL THING, FOLKS! In fact, I can provide SEVERAL examples:

You go into the bathroom and then your shower curtain rod falls suddenly and hits you on the back or head really, REALLY hard for NO REASON, or you see black shadows moving about your house or your radio or TV turns on all by itself or you feel something poking and prodding your feet or body at night when you’re trying to sleep or you have CONSTANT nightmares where demons are harassing you and controlling you, left, right and center, etc.etc.

Therefore, when one INITIALLY had control in the beginning (afterall, each person MAKES a choice to have said objects in their home/car/workplace to BEGIN with, do they not?), AS SOON AS they brought that demonic object into their car/home/workplace, that person GAVE OVER their control/their spiritual power and authority to the enemy (Satan/demons). Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Now…….that being said, what sorts of things classify as “demonic objects” and “idols”, you may ask? Let me list them:

  1. Tarot cards
  2. Ouija boards
  3. Incense
  4. Statues or carvings (doesn’t matter if they’re “Catholic” or not – a statue is a statue and a carving is a carving)
  5. Astrology materials
  6. Myths & Legends
  7. Occultic/New Age Artwork
  8. Dolls
  9. Black candles
  10. Anything that glorifies other “gods” other than Jesus Christ
  11. The Book of Mormon, the Qu’ran, The Talmud, etc.
  12. Music that doesn’t glorify Jesus Christ
  13. Movies that don’t glorify Jesus Christ
  14. Books that don’t glorify Jesus Christ
  15. Santa Claus and Easter bunny stuff
  16. Figurines
  17. Hallucinogenic drugs/drug materials
  18. Hard liquor
  19. Crystals
  20. Satanic video-games like World of Warcraft, etc.
  21. Posters of people, animals, places or things (Hint: even a “poster” of Jesus HIMSELF can be an “idol” according to the bible!)
  22. Abstract Artwork (especially with the Kundalini spiral, or “lightning” patterns, etc.)
  23. ETC.

Many Christians today, especially many Americans, let ALOT of ungodly things into their homes (ungodly movies, music, TV, video-games, etc.) and then turn around and wonder WHY the world, as well as their own emotional/psychological/spiritual well-being seems to be going to “HECK” in a hand-basket! Is it because 8 out of 10 homes are NOT keeping watch and NOT keeping “spiritual guard” over themselves, their homes and their families?

Why is it that many Christians today think they ONLY have to keep themselves on full spiritual guard while they’re at CHURCH? What about all the times when they’re NOT in church? Many Christians today report feeling depressed, disillusioned, hopeless, helpless, etc. But WHY is that, do you think? What part have WE, as born-again Christians (as a whole) played in this? Is it because we’re all (as a whole) unwittingly bringing things into our home that we shouldn’t, but yet, we’re so caught up in the things of this world (the lastest movie/TV shows/”technological gadgets”) that we’re not even SEEING spiritually clearly?

Many Christians haven’t read their bibles in a long time. And when they DO try to read it, they notice they feel extremely sleepy and can’t stay awake or something else comes up and distracts them. And many INTERNALIZE IT and blame THEMSELVES for it! But folks: it’s THE ENEMY that’s trying to make you NOT read your bibles! It’s THE ENEMY who wants YOU to feel stressed, depressed, hopeless, powerless, etc.! Just like it’s THE ENEMY who wants YOU to blame YOURSELF for HIS spiritual persecutions against you!

In fact, many Christians, if they were to investigate things further, and peel back all the spiritual layers (much like, peeling back layers of an onion), they’d discover that Satan and demons were the sole cause! They’d discover that Satan and demons were in fact themselves the original “driving force” that very first CONVINCED a person to buy that ungodly video-game or “idol” object to begin with! And then, when that object was brought into the home, Satan laughed with glee as he was then able to get a two-thronged spiritual control over the person!

Remember that last time you were about to do something really huge, something really miraculous for the Lord and Satan tried to stop you dead in your tracks or immediately distract you with something else? That wasn’t coincidence, folks! That was pure, outright, HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!

“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

But now I want to get into the very HEART of tonight’s message: ALL of the spiritual persecution and/or harassment you’ve experienced BEFORE will be NOTHING like the spiritual persecution and/or harassment that will come from Revelation 13:7:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations

So in other words, if YOU thought that the spiritual persecution and/or spiritual harassment you’ve suffered up until THIS point (8:00p.m. central standard time, USA, on 12/28/2018) was BAD, you haven’t seen NOTHING yet, folks!!!!!!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! Because as “bad” as things are in the world and in society right now, things are going to get WORSE……..much, much worse! Now…..I know that’s kind’ve a buzzkill and probably not what most of you wanted to hear tonight but it’s the truth!

But lets unpack Revelation 13:7 a bit. What does the bible MEAN when it says power was “given him” to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS? And who are the “saints”, by the way, according to the bible? The bible, in several passages (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:2, Jude 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:1, Ephesians 1:1, Colossians 1:26, Ephesians 2:19, etc.) declares that ALL born-again believers in Jesus are SAINTS!

Now………for the 2nd part of that passage…….What does it mean that power was “given him?” And furthermore, who’s the HIM that the bible is talking about? Answer: the HIM that they’re talking about is none other than THE ANTICHRIST and the reason that power is “given him” is because he HAS no power of his own volition! Whatever “limited power” he has is “green-lighted BORROWED POWER!” In other words, Satan’s “limited power” comes from power that he BORROWED from God the Heavenly Father! Because as we know, God the Heavenly Father is ALL POWERFUL & ALL KNOWING!

Folks, we’re getting really, really close to the fulfillment of Revelation chapter 13, I’m NOT EVEN KIDDING! We’ve got all the TECHNOLOGY in place, it’s just a question of WHEN that technology’s gonna be unleashed on all of mankind SIMULTANEOUSLY AT ONCE! And if you think you’ve ALREADY (as a born-again Christian) experienced the DIE-HARD SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION OF REVELATION 13:7, THINK AGAIN! Folks, we here in America haven’t even gotten CLOSE to the HIGH LEVELS of spiritual persecution that ALL born-again Christians in this country will soon face!

Christians in the Middle East and Asia are being rounded up, imprisoned, tortured and PUT TO DEATH for their faith in Christ! So let that be a preview to us ALL, here in America, and in Christianized Western nations! We in Westernized nations have this overall tendency to think it could NEVER, EVER happen to us………..the same horrible things that are now happening in the Middle East & Asia……….but folks, it’s ONLY a matter of time! Therefore, if you think any type of “persecution” you’re experiencing NOW is bad, JUST YOU WAIT!

Also as well: If you can’t handle what small-time persecutions you’re facing NOW, how will you EVER, EVER be able to handle all the LARGE-TIME PERSECUTIONS as the LITERAL TIME of Revelation 13:7 unfolds? It begs of question!

I KNOW it seems “scary” at the onset. Afterall, there’s always this fear of the unknown. But folks, you must NOT give up, not NOW, not EVER! Because remember: that’s just what Satan wants! Satan WANTS you to give up! Satan WANTS you to throw in the towel! Satan WANTS you to believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture so that when it doesn’t happen, you’ll lose faith and take The Mark of the Beast! (In fact, Matthew 24 indicates the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of a Pre-Tribulation rapture!) 

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” – Matthew 24:13

I don’t know why but the Lord Jesus himself has just now (at this very moment) lead me to the parable of the sower! This can be found in Matthew chapter 13, verses 1-23!!!

Basically, in summary, there are 4 different types of “reactions” in one’s heart to a person’s hearing the gospel of salvation:

  • Type 1 – This is a person who hears the gospel being spoken but does NOT understand it. Therefore, because he does NOT understand it, (and my own spiritual take on this has always been that this person likely doesn’t even HAVE a desire to understand it, in their hearts, to begin with), that which they heard is quickly stolen away by the enemy, which is Satan!
  • Type 2 – This person receives the gospel with joy but has no “deep root” of faith within themselves………for when persecution strikes, they give up because they “can’t handle it” and/or “don’t understand why they’re being persecuted”
  • Type 3 – This person hears the word (the gospel), but the cares and riches of this world (i.e. materialism and greed) “choke” the word and this person becomes “unfruitful”
  • Type 4 – This person hears the word (the gospel) AND understands it (AND obeys it and obeys it WITH JOY)…….Therefore, because of this, he/she BEARS MUCH FRUIT!

Folks, what type of person are YOU? For if you’re type 1, 2, or 3, it’s time to re-evaluate and ask the Lord Jesus for some spiritual understanding while spiritual understanding may still be found! We’ve probably all, at some point, been a type 2 or type 3 or combination thereof. But it’s what we DID with that experience that matters. Did we LEARN something from it? I know I did. I’ve learned that not all the money and things in the world will satisfy for ONLY Jesus Christ and having a close spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ will satisfy!

In my much younger day, I didn’t really understand what “spiritual persecution” was all about. I used to think it was just God being “mad” at me, I didn’t know any better. And it’s quite easy to become a type 3 without even trying. For we live in a world and a society where “consumerism” is EVERYWHERE! Have we seen the latest movies or TV shows? Have we read the latest books? Have we bought the most up-to-date “technology?” The list goes on. In fact, as time goes on, it’s going to be harder and harder and harder to BE a type 4! And I really think that’s the message that Jesus wanted me to tell you all tonight!

And when you “feel” like giving up, just KNOW that it’s Satan trying to spiritually knock you down and KEEP you down and out of the count………..just KNOW that Satan’s using his demons to wreck HAVOC upon you! Are YOU going to let Satan and his demons win? Or are you going to let JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY – KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS win? 

Whenever you GET to that critical point where you’re thinking: Man! I just can’t TAKE this anymore! This is just…..TOO MUCH! I CAN’T….EVEN…..“, DON’T GIVE UP! Keep a diary or journal. WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE FEELING!! And then PRAY to Jesus Christ about WHAT you wrote! It works! MARK MY WORDS! Journaling my spiritual struggles has helped me IMMENSELY! Because it allowed me to go back, read what I wrote (from the outside looking in) and then REALIZE what the “trigger” was that LED me to feel occasionally “discouraged” in the FIRST PLACE!

Last but not least, when all ELSE fails, read the Psalms (most written by King David) and about the heavenly city called “New Jerusalem” in Revelation, chapters 21 and 22! And remember Jesus’s words in Hebrews 13: 5-6 Let your conversation be without covetousness (i.e. jealousy); and be content (i.e. happy/satisfied) with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE’. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me”. 

And lastly, I say a prayer for you:

“Jesus, if there’s anyone out there today who’s struggling with feelings of fear, doubt, stress, depression, anxiety, discouragement, despondency, etc., I pray that you LIFT THEM UP IN SPIRIT and ENCOURAGE THEM and GIVE THEM THE BOLD FAITH LIKE A LION, THE WISDOM OF A SERPENT AND THE GENTLENESS OF A DOVE! I pray that you ENLIGHTEN them to all the “tactics” of the enemy and give them the tools by which to OVERCOME the enemy! Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why ALL Statues are IDOLS (Biblically-Speaking)

Folks, there’s most recently been a controversy in which extreme leftists have wanted to TEAR DOWN all CONFEDERATE statues based on RACE, ALONE! 

And while many Christians out there in the South are PROTESTING taking down the statues, there’s a MUCH BIGGER picture here at play folks and that’s THIS:

ALL “STATUES” ARE **IDOLS!** Yes, you heard me. **IDOLS**. How we know this? Let us go no further than the 2nd commandment in the bible, which states the following:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” – [Exodus 20: 4-5]

Okay, so let us define what a “graven image” is, biblically-speaking. It is simply an “image made by the hands of man”. And that “image” (in order to be classified as an “idol”, biblically speaking) must represent a thing or a person that is under the Earth, on the Earth or above the Earth.

Therefore, ALL STATUES comply with all the categories of an IDOL (biblically-speaking):

  1. It’s an “image” or “representation” made with mans’ hands
  2. It’s an “image” or “representation” of a person/thing that’s under/on/above the Earth
  3. Mankind often “marvels” over such “statues” and “takes picture of it” or with themselves BY it, which qualifies as a form of “worship”, according to the bible. Because remember: to “marvel” over something is to “worship it”, biblically-speaking

Therefore, I think ALL STATUES should come down. Not so much because of the race or history thing, but because of the IDOL THING! Think about how many Catholics, for instance, BOW DOWN to “statues” of “saints” (DEMONS) or The “Pope” or what have ya. Many people say that statues of Catholic saints are IDOLS, yet statues of historical figures are NOT.

But HOW is that, folks? How is a man-made STATUE of an historical figure ANY DIFFERENT than all the statues of Catholic saints? Don’t people (in a sense) bow down to and WORSHIP statues of historical figures by TAKING PICTURES OF IT or taking pictures of themselves RIGHT BY IT? Think about it, folks! 

I’m honestly surprised that more Christians out there haven’t picked up on this and started more of a “fuss” about this. When the VERY FIRST “statues” (i.e. IDOLS) were put up of historical figures, how IS it that most Christians out there weren’t PROTESTING THEM, THEN? Answer: Because they were SPIRITUALLY BLIND

Satan had it SO EASY on this, folks! One little statue HERE, one little statue THERE and many Christians were NONE THE WISER! How sad, folks! How PITIFUL! What a SPIRITUAL SHAME that more Christians have not been able to open up their eyes and SEE THIS SIMPLE FACT!

Many Christians today even want to CLING to those statues as “vestiges of human history”. And while it’s true that human history should never be forgotten (lest it be repeated, once again), I just don’t think that clinging to STATUE IDOLS is the way to go about it, SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING! 

Most of us wouldn’t want or have idols in our HOMES! So why should we want any STATUE IDOLS in the PUBLIC SQUARE? Think about it, folks! A 10 commandments monument is ONE thing! A STATUE (i.e. GRAVEN IMAGE IDOL) of an historical figure is another thing, altogether! 

And folks, it’s NOT JUST statues of historical figures that are IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES (the statue of liberty’s DEFINITELY AN IDOL – like it or not), but it can also be things like statues of cats, dogs, fish, ANYTHING. It doesn’t necessarily have to BE a statue of a “Buddha” or the like to BE an “idol”, BIBLICALLY-SPEAKING. Do you read me on this, folks?????

Anyways, it just breaks my heart and makes me so, so sad that many Christians are BLIND as to exactly WHAT an idol is (it’s a heck of alot more than just a Buddha or a wax museum figurine of somebody famous). When are people gonna open up their eyes and see this fact? 

I pray that if you’re a Christian/Messianic Jew who doesn’t yet see the BIBLICAL TRUTH about statues, that you soon WILL. I also pray that ALL statues will start to come down, soon. Again, not for the LIBERAL REASONS stated but for BIBLICAL REASONS! Cause then, and only then might almighty God have just a little more “patience” with this nation if we start tearing down statues (IDOLS/GRAVEN IMAGES) for all the RIGHT reasons (BIBLICAL REASONS) instead of all the WRONG reasons!

Folks, we (America) are a nation of IDOL WORSHIPERS (statues at every which corner/public square), MURDERERS (abortion, etc.), WHOREMONGERS (homosexuality/transgenderism/pre or extra marital sex), BLASPHEMERS and THIEVES. But even if we (as a nation) were to get rid of just ONE of those things (for all the RIGHT biblical reasons), the Lord would be partially pleased. Did you know that, people? Do you CARE? 

But yet, the bible says that won’t happen anytime soon. America will have to FALL TO ITS KNEES before many of its own citizens will repent. And EVEN THEN, many will have a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART towards Jesus and his commands in the bible!

Remember how all the ancient Greeks and Romans had STATUES at every corner and all over their “public squares?” Today’s times aren’t so different now, are they? True, people might not PHYSICALLY bow down and “worship” the statues of historical figures in the essence of: Oh President Lincoln, I worship thee GREATLY, but that’s because people do so IN THEIR HEARTS!

Like I said, they take PICTURES of the “statues” (graven images) or take pictures of THEMSELVES by the “statues”…..But again, exactly WHERE does that motivation truly come from? WHAT or WHOM gives them the very “thought” IN THE FIRST PLACE that they should take a picture OF it or with themselves BY it? Who or what, INDEED?

Can you IMAGINE Jesus back in the day telling any of his disciples (had the technology existed back then) to “snap” a pic of Roman statues or with themselves in front of one/by one? OFCOURSE NOT! Therefore, if a disciple HAD done that (had the technology existed back then), Jesus would’ve IMMEDIATELY denounced it as IDOLISM (which, it clearly IS!) 

And you don’t think Jesus Christ considers that a form of “worship”, folks? Trust me, he considers it WORSHIP…….And that applies EVEN TO STATUES OF HIMSELF…….He doesn’t even want us “worshiping” or “marveling” over statues of HIM…….Therefore, do you REALLY think he’d want any of us “worshiping” or “marveling” over a statue of historical figures or the like? THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

[NOTE:  hope this post has both enlightened and informed you about THE TRUTH about all “STATUES”. May you NO LONGER be deceived by Satan and his demons! Amen.] 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus or “Breadcrumbs?”

I’ve most recently read a most PROFOUND book on “idols”. In the book, it talks about how idols are NOT JUST “statues” and “figurines”…..they can be SO MUCH MORE! 

Think back to the time of the Old Testament when there were a set of twins by the names of Jacob & Esau. Esau was the oldest of the two and back in those days (ancient, biblical times), the oldest son got most (if not all) of the father’s property when the father died, ALONG with what’s known as *the patriarchal blessing*.

It was custom back in those days that when a father died, the oldest son would “inherit” the most (if not all). This was known as his “birthright”. But RIGHT BEFORE the father died, it was custom for the father to BESTOW (that means, to give) his “personal blessing” upon the oldest son. While any consequent younger son could ALSO get some sort of “blessing”, it was always typically MUCH LESSER in degree, in comparison with what type of “patriarchal blessing” the OLDEST son would get. 

Esau was a hunter of the fields, while Jacob was more of a “homely” sheep-herder that preferred to stay at home in the camp. One day, while Esau was out hunting, Jacob cooked up some soup. And when Esau came home from his daily hunt, the SMELL of that soup must’ve been (in Esau’s nostrils, atleast) “heavenly”. He asked Jacob for some of that soup. But Jacob was clever. He said if Esau SOLD HIM HIS BIRTHRIGHT, he, Jacob, would then give him some of the soup.

Esau obliged (in other words, Esau agreed to it). And later on in the biblical narrative, we see how that plays out and how Esau is ALSO “tricked” out of his patriarchal blessing as well (or could it have been God’s wrath upon Esau for being so “careless” over his “birthright”, to begin with?) 

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: WHEN Esau SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT for a “measly bowl of soup”, he, in effect, was likened unto one who SOLD HIS SOUL for a “measly portion”. That’s all idols are, really. A “measly portion”. Breadcrumbs! They SEEM enticing and thrilling at first glance. But on the inside, they are hallow shells; SPIRITUALLY EMPTY.

And the more of these “empty idols” we have, the more we “need” in order to try to sustain ourselves. We’re like birds, chasing after, picking up and eating one “breadcrumb idol” after another. They can’t talk, move, see or hear. So what ABOUT them seems SO appealing to us? The following book attempts to answer those questions for us IN DETAIL:

NO OTHER GODS BOOK

Therefore, what was Esau’s “idol” in that case? It was FOOD!

“And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?Genesis 25:32

Genesis 25:33 goes on to say that Jacob demanded that Esau SELL his “birthright” to him. SELL IT. Think about what that MEANS, folks! And the end of the passage says that Esau DID sell it. 

“And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob” – Genesis 25:33

I guess it’s really no wonder then when we read in Romans 9:13 in the NEW TESTAMENT: “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated“.

Now…….if people reading the New Testament read that Romans 9:13 passage, WITHOUT ever even HAVING read the Old Testament, that can, at first glance, seem like a statement of “pure hatred”. But what that passage is REALLY saying (in context) is that Jesus loved the HEART of Jacob (which was set on “spiritual things”) but despised the HEART of Esau (who was stuck on “worldly/fleshly things” – like food).

Another good biblical dichotomy (in other words, comparison) is the difference between Ishmael & Isaac. God promised Abraham and Sarah a child in their old age. They waited some time and nothing happened. So they got a little “antsy” (or atleast Sarah did, anyways). Sarah decided she didn’t want to wait anymore and told Abraham to marry her slave girl, Hagar, so that Sarah might have a child THROUGH her. Abraham obeyed. Hagar had a child and his name was *Ishmael*. 

However, when Ishmael was in his early teens, Sarah DID conceive and have a child, whose name was Isaac. The book up above I read suggested that Abraham likely thought (at first, anyways) that Ishmael was the “promised heir” [because remember how, in ancient biblical times, special blessings always went to the oldest son?] but instead, it was, according to the bible, Isaac.

However, there’s also one DISTINCTION, here. Ishmael was born from a “concubine”/”slave woman” while Isaac was born of a WIFE! That makes all the difference in the world, here and is also why God’s covenant was with ISAAC, instead of Ishmael.

Now…..are there any OTHER cases in the bible where the YOUNGEST/YOUNGER son ended up getting a BIGGER “patriarchal blessing” than the OLDEST? Yes. We find that in Genesis 48:17-20…..In THIS passage, Jacob is VERY OLD in age, with all his sons (and 2 grandsons by his son Joseph) standing around him. 

Now remember, back in those days, it was typical for the oldest son to get a MUCH BIGGER blessing than any of the younger son(s). Manasseh was Joseph’s oldest son, while Ephraim was his youngest son. Joseph wanted his father Jacob to put his patriarchal blessing on his OLDEST son, Manasseh and placed his hands accordingly. But instead, Jacob did just the OPPOSITE……….He crossed his hands and blessed the YOUNGER SON, EPHRAIM, instead. 

Manasseh’s name means “causing to forget” while Ephraim’s name means “fruitful” or “causing to be fruitful”. So perhaps that has something to do with WHY the younger son was blessed over the older one. 

I’ve written ONE previous post on the subject of idols, from a slighly different angle: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/idols-in-modern-day-society/

And ya know, it’s funny. I’ve always known and REALIZED that idols don’t necessarily have to be statues or figurines. But until I saw the FULL list of what they could be (even people and “relationships”), I was never really able to put it into full scope. Therefore, that book was an EYE-OPENING book for me and I’d HIGHLY recommend it. It also comes with a BIBLE STUDY GUIDE as well. 

But in closing, I’d just like to ask: What type of idols do you have in your life? Are/were you even aware that you had them? And do you realize that idols are like “breadcrumbs”….promising spiritual nourishment but NEVER fulfilling it? And are you willing to learn to relinquish “breadcrumb idols” for the sake of a closer and COMPLETE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ?

If you answered yes to the last question, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “No Other Gods” paperback book (easier for highlighting important passages), along with the “No Other God Bible Study Guide”. And remember: strive for Jesus, NOT “BREADCRUMBS”.

NO OTHER GODS BIBLE STUDY

 

What “Beauty & The Beast” TRULY Represents!

There’s most recently been a MAJOR controversy concerning the “most current” film adaptation of The Beauty & The Beast “fairytale”. The director, who’s openly homosexual HIMSELF, decided he wanted to include a “exclusively gay moment” in the film. This, in turn, has had MANY Christian parents threatening to boycott the film and/or Disney, in and of itself.

However, I have to SERIOUSLY WONDER why ANY Christian parent would take their kids and/or themselves to see the film to begin with, “gay moment” or not…….Because folks………it’s ALL in the TITLE of the movie, itself! Think about what the NAME truly IMPLIES: Beauty & THE BEAST! (SATAN? BESTIALITY? WORSHIP *OF* THE BEAST?)

It’s a thing of mind control. If you call it “Beauty AND The Beast”, that subconsciously implies that “the Beast” is BEAUTIFUL! THE BEAST! The book of Revelation describes THE BEAST as A DEVIL! A godless being that DEMANDS WORSHIP! A Satanic being that’ll someday DEMAND that ALL men, women and children take HIS MARK in order to be able to buy and sell.

But in fact, I most recently saw a “Christian” article that whined about how “The Beast” IN the “Beauty & Beast” fairytale story EVOLVED from a “loveable-looking creature” TO Baphomet with horns! But what *I* am desperately trying to tell ALL Christians today (ESPECIALLY parents) is that “The Beast” has secretly represented Baphomet ALL ALONG and it’s just that many people didn’t realize it! 

Think about it, folks! Truly think about it. What is NORMAL about a young woman “dating and/or marrying” A BEAST? Anything? If a young female in today’s world all of a sudden decided she wanted to “date” or “marry” an actual living RAM (with horns), what would the majority of humans say? They’d say she was mentally sick and deranged! But hey……put that into a “fairytale format” and it’s A-OK in today’s godless world, right folks? 

beauty and the beast 2017

But in fact, the Beauty & The Beast “fairytale” is nothing more than an attempt to make “bestiality” seem “cute” and “cuddly” the same way that the movie called “Ted” tries to make SIN itself seem “cute and cuddly” with the image of a TALKING TEDDY BEAR (the teddy bear ofcourse being one of the most INNOCENT of symbols in today’s world, especially among children!)

How and why is it that many Christians have never noticed this before? It boggles the mind! Even just the name “The Beast” IN AND OF ITSELF should send colloquial shivers down a Christian’s spine and stop a Christian dead in their tracks!

Folks, we live in such an EVIL WORLD, today! We’ve been BOMBARDED with images of evil. We (as a whole) have become SO desensitized to sin/evil/evil themes that we Christians hardly even recognize it anymore! (Just think of how many CHRISTIANS watch the show called AMERICAN IDOL, being totally OBLIVIOUS to the word IDOL and what it TRULY implies! The 2nd commandment CONDEMNS IDOLS/IDOLATRY!)

They’re not even trying to hide it anymore, folks! They’re now OPEN and BLATANT about it (TV shows like Lucifer, for example). The Satanic elite now KNOWS that many Christian people are onto them so now they don’t care. They’re just putting it out there now, all out in the open, trying to bank on the fact that IF they show enough evil in today’s TV, movie and entertainment programming, that sooner or later, nearly ALL Christian souls out there will become SO desensitized to it, that they won’t even fully recognize it anymore!

YES, I’M CALLING ON ALL CHRISTIANS TO BOYCOTT THE FILM “BEAUTY & THE BEAST”. NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE “GAY THING” BUT BECAUSE BESTIALITY (EVEN IN ANIMATED FORM) IS AN ABOMINATION UNTO ALMIGHTY GOD! WE MUST RECOGNIZE EVIL WHEN WE SEE IT AND TELL OTHERS SO THAT THEY RECOGNIZE IT, TOO! WE MUST ***NOT***, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BECOME DESENSITIZED IN **ANY** WAY, SHAPE OR FORM TO EVIL….BECAUSE THAT’S JUST WHAT THEY (THOSE LIVING IN DARKNESS AND ADVOCATING *FOR* DARKNESS/EVIL) WANT

“American IDOL”: Sign of a LOST GENERATION

Today’s Music & Entertainment Industry is OF THE DEVIL! And the TV show called “American IDOL” is no different! (In fact, who remembers the singer by the name of Billy IDOL back in the 80’s? Ring a bell?) The dark side (ever since the late 80’s or so) has basically, over time, started to become more BLATANT with its “agenda”, which is to deceive the masses into INADVERTENTLY worshiping Satan/demons. It’s just that no-one’s really noticed, until now.

Now that more average people are “in the know” (due to people making Youtube videos about it and EXPOSING it), the dark side doesn’t really care anymore. In fact, I think the dark side PURPOSELY gave Billy Idol his name and named the TV show called “American IDOL” as some sort of personal “test”, to see if any Americans (specifically, Christians) would be *spiritually* smart enough to pick up on it.

Sadly, many “Christian” people here in America weren’t! What’s the evidence? Facebook. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen the TV show “American IDOL” or “Billy IDOL” LIKED on Facebook by random people who “claim” to be “Christian”! But then again, this goes for ANY TV show that doesn’t glorify God! Wow! People are SPIRITUALLY BLIND, folks! Even I myself thought at one time that “music” and “TV shows” were harmless but boy was I wrong! They REALLY mess with a person’s psyche, rather people realize that or not! 

American IDOL…..THINK about what that name implies, folks (literally, spiritually and even *culturally!*). The 2nd commandment more or less says, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images or idols”, that’s WHY they named the show “American IDOL‘. And the dark side is secretly laughing behind the scenes, cause the SCREAMING/CHEERING audience (as well as those watching on TV at home) have NO IDEA about what’s REALLY going on, behind the spiritual scenes! 

There’s many out there that claim they don’t “believe” in the Devil and this and that. But tell me. If the Devil doesn’t exist, why do music and movie stars SELL THEIR SOULS TO HIM for money/riches/fortune/fame? Certainly, these “celebs” wouldn’t be able to do that if the Devil weren’t real, correct? And even still, why sell one’s soul to a so-called “imaginary entity” that one didn’t even so-called believe in, in the first place, for money, fortune and fame? Makes no logical sense, does it? Clearly, these celebs KNOW (and “believe”) the Devil is real.

Want proof? Look no further than the **4:04-4:25** mark in THE FOLLOWING EMBEDDED VIDEO

OR the 1:38, 2:45, 3:08-3:10, 3:31, 3:38-3:51 or **4:25-4:33** mark in THIS VIDEO:

And right underneath the 2nd embedded Youtube video, a viewer had THIS to say:

“Me too lol. I was just saying today to a friend of mine that she is a walking orgasm, musically. When I listen to Tori’s genius musical masterpieces, she takes over my body and soul. It feels really good and she sometimes makes me cry. Unfortunately, Tori Amos is HIGHLY underrated”

Further down, the same user stated: “So sexy, though. I’m a woman and she makes me wanna do her.

Do you SEE what type of world we’re living in today, folks? Today’s music and entertainment industry is DESIGNED to “suck you in”, is DESIGNED to “take over your mind, heart, body and soul”, is DESIGNED to seduce you/make you LUST, is DESIGNED to take you away from the written word of God!

And that’s where you have TV shows like “The X Factor”, “The Voice”, “American IDOL” and even “Dancing With The Stars” come in. And do you want to know what the IRONIC thing is? “American Idol” became a TV show slightly after the time that I started noticing a “slight resurgence” or a “rise” in the number of people being “hungry” for “spiritual truth” (i.e. Jesus, the bible)…….

So it’s almost like this GODLESS TV show had to be created here in America in order to try to COUNTERACT the “resurgence” of people in America searching for “the truth” (i.e. Jesus, the bible), somehow. And boy, did it do its job! Many people will bend over backwards just to be on this show! And SOME people even go “crazy” before/during/right after auditioning for this show!

In fact, the Luciferian elite’s looking for the NEXT GENERATION of people to spiritually ruin others and to BE spiritually ruined! But then again, the Devil has to pick people who are “open” to being “destroyers” in the spiritual sense (though many of these people DON’T EVEN REALIZE they’re being “used” by the Luciferian elite to SPIRITUALLY DESTROY THEMSELVES AND OTHERS, to be fair).

Many people think these “shows” are just about fame and money. But it goes much, much deeper than that, folks! At its very CORE, shows like these are about SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION OF MANKIND! Have you ever noticed the “hellish Luciferian background” of the TV show “American Idol”? WHY is that, do you think? Ask yourselves that, folks! 

And DURING the actual “X-Factor”, “American Idol”, “The Voice”  and EVEN “Dancing With The Stars” TV shows, the people in the audience are just SCREAMING and CHEERING and CRYING with excitement! Now tell me………when’s the last time that you ever heard of a person in today’s godless world getting THAT happy and exited over JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY? Because the last time a “society” or “group of people” treated Jesus Christ LIKE the “true Son of God” was in what’s known in Luke 19:35-40 as his Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem! People cheered and cried out with excitement, layed down tree branches and cloaks in his path and likely waved palm branches!

Now…….that was OK for the Judeo-“Christian” people to do with the actual SON OF GOD/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY, FOR HE IS WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE! But that sort of “adoration”, “praise” and “excitement” is NOT okay for people to do with any other being in the universe! Because when people SCREAM, CHEER and CRY tears of “idol appreciation” for something or someone that ISN’T the TRUE Son of God, which is, always was and always WILL be Jesus Christ Almighty, they’re directly worshiping Satan/demons, rather they realize it or not!

[But what’s sad is that WHEN the Anti-Christ comes upon the Earth — which should be any day, now, quite frankly, CONSIDERING “the times” we’re currently living in, in today’s world– he’s going to falsely claim to be “The Messiah” and many, many people will actually “believe him”! WHY will they “believe him”? Because their names aren’t written in the Lamb’s book of Life!

What’s the Lamb’s book of Life? It’s the names of all of Yeshua’s/Jesus Christ’s FAITHFUL/OBEDIENT FOLLOWERS. Therefore, ALL whose names aren’t written IN Jesus’s Book of Life will have TWO things eternally happen to them. First, they’ll be SPIRITUALLY DECEIVED by the Anti-Christ and take what’s known as “The Mark of the Beast”, so that they’ll still be able to buy and sell. Secondly, BECAUSE they took the “Mark of the Beast”, they will then be ETERNALLY CONDEMNED by God and thrown into “the Lake of Fire”(Revelation 20:15!)]

For example, in the following video, Tori Amos is CLEARLY demonically possessed (even a NON-BELIEVER would be smart enough to figure that out), but what happens? The audience is still SCREAMING and CHEERING in the background, regardless of what’s OBVIOUSLY happening on stage! So what does that tell you, folks? People that idolize things/people/music/movies/books/TV shows are just OBLIVIOUS to the fact of what’s REALLY going on “behind the *spiritual scenes!*”

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Satan and his demons don’t JUST go after Christians and Jews in their “spiritual warfare”, they go after ALL of mankind (EVEN those that proclaim THEMSELVES to be “Satanists/Luciferian”). Ever heard one guy say to another guy close by, “hey man, come party with us tonight, bro!” You think that’s NOT a demonic temptation of sorts? Or have you ever heard someone say, “Oh my gosh, I LOVE this person, they’re like, my IDOL or something!” and/or “I CAN’T WAIT to see the movie *Fifty Shades of Gray*, I’m like, SO, SO, SO EXCITED!” You also think THAT’S not some sort of demonic temptation of sorts?

Though the bible spoke of times such as these, we live in nothing but a LOST GENERATION, folks…..a generation that DESPERATELY needs to learn the truth, the ONLY truth in the universe, Jesus Christ Almighty! He’s the ONLY way to Salvation, folks! There IS no other way! It’s either Jesus or Satan, two options and two options, ONLY! And I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again: The “there’s many paths to Salvation” concept is a LIE! For there’s only ONE path to eternal truth (found in Jesus Christ Almighty and his Word), but there’s MANY “paths” to Satan!

Here’s a “list” of the many paths to Satan (rather directly/indirectly or knowingly/unknowingly, on an individual’s part):

  • Satanism
  • Wicca/New Age
  • Mormonism
  • Roman Catholicism
  • Idol worship (in AND outside of the Catholic Church…..e.g. worship of “celebrities”, movies, books, etc.
  • SIN, in and of itself
  • Seances
  • Communication with the dead
  • Tarot cards
  • Oujia boards
  • Fortune-telling/Horoscopes
  • LUST
  • SODOMY
  • Buddhism
  • Hinduism
  • Judaism
  • Shintoism
  • Paganized Christianity
  • Islam
  • Graven images (figurines, statues of Buddha, wood carvings of people/places/things, etc)
  • Numerology
  • Kabbalah
  • Shamanism
  • Paganism
  • Atheism and/or “The Atheist Fight To Remove God from America”
  • Feminism/Feminist Movement
  • Abortion
  • demon worship (in and of itself)
  • The Occult
  • Videogames (Although Christian videogames might be an exception)
  • “Partying”
  • Mind-altering drugs
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Mocking Jesus Christ
  • Love of Money/Being Popular
  • FEAR
  • LACK OF FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY AND HIS WORD
  • The Entertainment Industry
  • Hollywood
  • “Politically Correct”
  • Gay/Transgender Movement
  • ABORTION/Fighting for “Abortion rights”
  • Hate/Terrorism
  • FREEMASONRY
  • “Newer bible translation” which water down the written word of God
  • The mere “going-through-the-motions” faith in Jesus and the bible, NOT REAL, GENUINE faith in Him & His Written Word!
  • Plus many, many more!

The point I’m trying to make is that Satan’s been at war with humanity FROM THE VERY BEGINNING OF CREATION OF MANKIND! He hasn’t stopped! If anything, his attacks have ONLY gotten much STRONGER over the years and FAR MORE NUMEROUS!

Why? We get our answer in Revelation 12:12: “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

In other words, Satan knows he ONLY has a certain limited time-frame in order to deceive the masses! So he knows he must get crackin’! That’s WHY today’s music, books and TV shows are becoming more and more sexualized, violent, blasphemous (towards Jesus Christ/the bible) & profane! The last “secular” movie I saw had the “F word” being said every other sentence, it seemed like! Not my type of movie and I don’t even know why I went to see that godless movie in the first place!

I’ve only seen 3 “secular” movies TOTAL within the last 3 years or so and I didn’t like ANY of them, personally! I also saw two “Christian movies”, which oddly enough, I didn’t like that much either, since I found them to be “not truthful enough to God’s Word”, etc. And ever since the last “Christian movie” I went to go see, (“Left Behind” starring Nicolas Cage), I haven’t stepped FOOT inside the movie theatre, since! No reason to, really. I know there’s recently been some NEW “Christian  movies” out there in the year 2015, but again, if they’re anything like the OTHER two……..that watered down God’s written word or put a slightly unbiblical twist to it…….??

But anyways, this generation is LOST! In fact, this generation is BEYOND LOST! In fact, I just feel OVERWHELMED sometimes at the RATE of evil/spiritual depravity I see in the world today! There are literally LOST SOULS ***EVERYWHERE***! At the grocery store, at the gas station, in line at the bank, etc…….

And it makes me wonder: WHO is telling these people about Jesus? WHO is telling these people about the ONLY way to Salvation? WHO is telling these people THE TRUTH about today’s Media and “Entertainment Industry” (e.g. Hollywood/American IDOL/etc.)? And just WHO is telling all these lost people THE TRUTH about “Today’s Christianity”, the TRUE HISTORY of Christianity and THE TRUTH about the TOTAL HELLISHNESS that is The Roman Catholic Church/Roman Catholic Church History/R.C.C. DOCTRINE?

Perhaps I should start making flyers or brochures exposing these things and start handing them out to people I see everywhere (those willing to take my materials, that is). Like, SERIOUSLY. We DON’T have alot of time left on this Earth, people! We’re living in the Last Days! Do any of you “Christians” or “Messianic Jews” CARE about all of the LOST SOULS around you? Because NOW’S the time to START!

Get the word out, people! Tell your friends, your family and your coworkers about all these things! For you may never get the chance again! Time is of the essence! We never know when we’re going to die! It could be 5 minutes from now or 50 years from now! Who’s to say, but God Almighty himself?

As 2015 wears down and the start of 2016 begins, you can bet your noodles it’ll be known among the elite as “The Year of Enlightenment”. But folks, it’s gonna be a “FALSE ENLIGHTENMENT”, a SATANIC ONE!

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” – Revelation 20:15

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36

In fact, if you haven’t already done so, please view this guy’s videos on Youtube. He does a MOST EXCELLENT job at EXPLAINING **how** and even **why** the elite is planning to bring the FALSE ENLIGHTENMENT ABOUT!

The Spirit of FEAR: Satan’s Attack On The Soul

Some days, our walk with Jesus Christ/Yeshua is really, really strong and we’re bold and confident in our faith. But then over time, if we’re not careful, fear and doubt begin to grip our souls as Satan and his demons work OVERTIME to make sure that happens in our lives! Many “Christians” out there today think that: “There’s NO NEED to spiritually battle Satan and his demons, Jesus ALREADY won the victory over Satan at the cross”. And my, oh MY, how those poor folks are DECEIVED! For 1 Peter 5:8 states: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour“.

Now, mentally picture this for just a moment. Imagine you are in a forest, and you’re lost and aren’t sure what direction to take. There’s a violent animal in that forest, hiding behind trees and tall brushes of grass, seeking whom he may devour. And that animal’s like a dog: he can smell doubt/fear from a MILE away! And as you’re slowly walking through this “forest”, (the forest of your SOUL, that is), are you going to have faith and call upon the name of the Lord to guide you through safely and “accurately” or are you gonna doubt and start to freak out at the VERY first audible sound of the evil animal (Satan) roaring?

Remember that story in the Old Testament when King Nebuchadnezzar threw Daniel (one of the Lord’s prophets) into the LIONS DEN for his refusal to abandon praying to the Lord ONLY (the only TRUE God of the universe, the creator and maker of all things?) Did Daniel feel fearful at all when placed into the LIONS DEN as punishment? It doesn’t look like it, from how the biblical narrative reads. And what happened as a result of Daniel NOT doubting and having faith that the Lord would protect him? The Lord closed the lions mouth so that they couldn’t even hurt Daniel!

And maybe perhaps the lions lay at Daniel’s feet and Daniel even got to pet the lions (as though they were “pets”) but we’ll never know. The point is, Daniel FEARED NOT! [Daniel, chapter 6 in the Old Testament tells the whole story, while Daniel 6: 16-21 focuses on the main parts of how Daniel was thrown into the Lions Den and then overcame. And that is particularly MIRACULOUS since most people (if they were to be completely honest) would probably cover their eyes and cower in fear. 

I think it was Daniel’s FAITH and TRUST IN THE LORD that saved him! For if Daniel had doubted, those lions probably would’ve been allowed to tear him to bits! There’s many cases in the bible where God wasn’t pleased when prophets doubted during the times of the Old Testament. However, when God returned as Jesus in the New Testament, he was a bit more patient. Still not pleased about the lack of faith but gently telling the disciples how to get MORE of it! 

But in fact, just 3 chapters earlier in Daniel 3 in the Old Testament, we also read about how Daniel’s 3 friends (fellow servants of the Lord of the bible) were THROWN INTO A FIERY FURNACE and didn’t have one single MARK on them! All because they wouldn’t bow down to an IDOL that the King of Babylon had set up for “worship”. The narrative can be read at Daniel 3: 13-24! There, we read how Daniel’s 3 friends WEREN’T BURNT BY THE FIRE ***DUE*** to their faith in the Lord of the bible!  

However, some of the OTHER Old Testament prophets weren’t so lucky. My heart breaks for Elijah when we read the Old Testament narrative of how he FEARED JEZEBEL AND FLEED FOR HIS **LIFE**! Because BEFORE he started to fear, he had VERY strong faith and was doing pretty much everything the Lord had asked him to do. But AFTER Jezebel made a threat on his life, HE FLED! And the arrogant part of me is always thinking: “Why didn’t he just face that old witch HEAD ON and tell her what a piece of sinful filth/affliction she was with the bold declaration to her face ‘ain’t nothing you can do to me, outside of the Lord’s power!” My heart absolutely breaks for Elijah every single time I read that passage [1 Kings 19 in the Old Testament].    

And in general, the fear in our minds, hearts, bodies and spirits starts out so small. “There’s alot of lay-offs going around. What if I get layed off and can no longer support my family?” Or “I feel like I’ve done alot for the Lord lately but what if I haven’t done nearly enough and the Lord’s angry with me?” Or “What if the Lord’s angry with me or has given up on me? What if the Lord hates me, now?” and so and so forth.

It starts out SO SMALL and then over time, those fears can simply become OVERPOWERING, if one does not call upon the name of the Lord to control those thoughts…..It’s that knotted feeling in the stomach, the feeling that something isn’t quite right. It’s that fear that makes us wake up in the middle of the night, unable to sleep. For some, it’s the Lord’s way of drawing that person to a state of repentance for their sins. But for others, it’s Satan’s blatant attack upon their mind, heart, body and spirit.

And in fact, in Luke 21:26, it says: “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken”.

Truth be told, Satan (as well as all his demons) HATES humans (as well as the entire section of the “heavenly congregation” in heaven that did NOT rebel or “see things Satan’s way”). And he knows he can’t destroy the RIGHTEOUS ANGELS of the Lord, so now, he AND his demons are wrecking havoc upon this Earth to try to destroy as many humans FROM WITHIN as they possibly can!

Many Christians today think that “demons no longer exist” and were only around during the time of the New Testament! HA! DON’T BE FOOLED! I submit to you today that they’re real, and “thriving” in today’s fallen world! Many famous celebrities even become POSSESSED by them (as Satan and his demonoids are NO respector of persons, even those who claim to “worship them”!) Check it out! The “bass playing” in and of itself, right off the bat, sounds HELLISH, as though demons were playing it! The **4:05-4:26** and **6:15-6:25** marks where TORI AMOS IS **CLEARLY DEMONICALLY POSSESSED** SAYS IT ALL!!!

Rather we are a believer in Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ or we aren’t, we’ve ALL felt “fearful” at times in our lives. And lets face it, Satan and his demons are NOTORIOUS for getting Christians and Jews to FEAR! We’ve worried about terrorist attacks, our finances, our taxes, the future of this country, etc. And while it’s perfectly normal/common for humans to worry about those things, the bible has a slightly DIFFERENT approach when it comes to FEAR:

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”

Psalm 118:6 (KJV) The LORD is on my side; I will not fear : what can man do unto me?”

Deuteronomy 31:6 (KJV) Be strong and of a good courage , fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee”

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV) Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed ; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” 

Matthew 6:30 (KJV) “Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?”

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”

Matthew 6:26 (KJV) “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”

Jeremiah 1:8 (KJV)Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD” (I honestly think this one’s talking about **demonic manifestations** of Satan and/or his demons!!! And remember, saints: With 100% faith in Jesus Christ Almighty, we have the 100% power to cast out demons for Jesus has said so!!!!!)

And that’s just a mere “sample”. There’s SO MANY MORE passages on FEAR and controlling/overcoming it in the bible. But for the sake of time & space, I just focused on those particular passages. I hope they will help you in your spiritual walk with God, today!

But the question remains. Do you fear something today? Do you fear a person? A thing? A cancer diagnosis? A lack of faith? A circumstance? Rebuke that fear right now this very second in the name of Jesus Christ Almighty! He CAN and he DOES have the power to wipe that fear AWAY! You just have to let Him!

“LORD JESUS, ANYONE THAT READS THIS POST, I REBUKE THE SPIRIT OF FEAR OUT OF THEIR MINDS, HEARTS, BODIES, AND SPIRITS. PLEASE CLEANSE THEM AND SET THEM FREE **AND** GIVE THEM A NEW MIND, HEART, BODY AND SPIRIT IN **YOU**, LORD! PLEASE GIVE THEM A FAITH NOW THAT’S **SO STRONG**, **NOT EVEN** THE THREAT OF DEATH OR TORTURE CAN TAKE IT AWAY! PLEASE GIVE THEM A FAITH THAT’S **SO STRONG**, THEY’D BE ABLE TO LAUGH IN SATAN’S AND THE DEMON’S FACES WHENEVER THEY MAKE BLATANT THREATS AGAINST THEM! PLEASE PROTECT THEM, BLESS THEM AND KEEP THEM FOR ALL ETERNITY! AMEN!”

Satanic Commercials In Plain Site: What Has Our Society BECOME? ;(

One of the most telling quotes I’ve ever heard about the field of advertising is THIS: “advertising is not so much selling people what they want but rather, what they don’t need“. Such a PROFOUND statement if you really think about it.

Though not ALL advertising is bad, the majority of it is Satan’s playground, lets be honest here. Why? Not only are the majority of commercials at this time materialistically-centered but most people don’t know about the total DEPTH advertisers will go to, to “psychologically test” their potential consumers…….

I guess that makes sense, considering they have to have atleast some idea of what ads will work and what ads won’t. But still. To me, there’s just something sinister about “preying” on the psyche of consumers. I for one, find that totally unnerving and a bit creepy (though others out there may not).

But regardless of rather you’re one who finds the concept of “psychologically testing” consumers creepy or not, here are some of the latest commercials with Satanic overtones. While most commercials’ focus USED to be on being funny/easily rememberable, starting around the year 2012-2013, things began to change. That’s around the time commercials starting becoming more and more Satanic. First subtly, now BLATANTLY (to those who know the symbolism). Let us examine a few:

2012 Superbowl Commercials: 

2013 Superbowl Commercials:

(look at the possessed woman’s eyes at 0:37-0:38 etc.)

General Satanic Commercials:

2014 Superbowl Commercials: (all are pretty much Satanic in origin except for a couple of them) 

This last one (the 2015 MountainDew Kickstart Superbowl Commercial) is one of THE MOST disturbing commercials YET, next to the one right above it. Why? Because of all the hellish Satanic symbolism in it and also what it means for the fate of today’s human race! SERIOUSLY!

Right off the bat on the TV screen, we see a huge beast kicking the TAR out of what looks like a white knight, armed with a sword. (To me, it represents Satan trying to overtake Jesus Christ and his heavenly forces at the Battle of Armageddon OR the devil’s attempt to try to overtake true/biblical-based Christianity/spiritual purity, in and of itself, altogether!)

We then see a guy hand over some Kickstart Mountain Dews to his friends. The one on the left has a YELLOW can, the one in the middle has a RED can and the one on the right also has a YELLOW can. And trust me, this is VERY significant! In Luciferian symbolism, yellow represents “light” and many claim Lucifer means “light-bearer”. So the RED can in the middle, surrounded by 2 YELLOW cans on its LEFT and RIGHT can only mean “Lucifer/Antichrist rising”.

We then see some distinct color patterns and hear some voodoo beats in the background music. We see grey, black and white, and total black. The guy dressed in black seems to represent death/heart attack/tasering/electrocution/EXTREME demonic possession/seizure/shock of death. (I’ll admit that the white dog symbolism has me partially stumped? Although in Luciferian symbolism, white represents purity and animals represent a beast/beasts. So perhaps it might have to do with the Antichrist but more about that later).

The WAY in which the 3 guys are moving is not only VERY creepy to me but represents TRUE demonic possession. Look at their “blank demonic eyes”. They are in a trance and it’s like they’re HIGHLY POSSESSED. In the background music, we hear lyrics that sound like: “shorty, bump that @**, I’m a beast, beast, beast, beast, beast, beast……I’M SPACELESS/AGELESS”.

We then see the Buck on the wall who NO DOUBT represents Baphomet. And when it/he says “HI” in a creepy Mickey Mouse voice, that to me, signifies that through the ungodly power of Satan/Baphomet, the Antichrist is now saying “HI” to the world. [Let us not also forget Katy Perry’s “riding the golden beast” at the Superbowl halftime show and the beast “roaring” at the end]. And I know that 5’s a significant number within Luciferian numerology, but I’m a little puzzled about what the 5 dancing/conjoined dogs mean. For if it’s not a direct reference to sodomy/homosexual acts/orgies, then it must have something to do with an ancient Egyptian theme (or is just me?)

And again, the white dog comes back on the scene and is dancing on all fours like a human. Not sure what that means? Unless it means that the Antichrist has now taken on human form and is now “among” the human populace here on Earth.

And then after seeing the dog dancing on all fours and the “portraits” and “signs” acting out/dancing [which may or may not be a direct/indirect reference to the Antichrist’s power “to make inanimate objects move” or what not], I think we see the “golden idol” dancing. At first glance, it looks like a golden hockey player idol. BUT…..upon slowing down the video a bit, I couldn’t help but notice that it looked like a pointed horn & tail DEVIL IDOL. The book of Revelation in the New Testament talks about how the Antichrist will set up an idol and cause it to speak/move and so the golden devil statue dancing kind’ve reminded me of that.

We also see halfway though the video a “dancing jacket” with NO BODY inside it! Could THAT be an indirect reference to the Rapture? Not sure but it was definitely interesting. However, the MountainDew ball cap signified that maybe there was something “sinister” about the “dancing jacket”, altogether, although I can’t figure out what, exactly. Though I’ve read some news article lately in which the military said it was working on “invisibility cloak technology”, so perhaps it might have something to do with THAT. But again, not sure. 

Also somewhere in the video, you have a guy flopping up and down like a fish and “humping the couch”, and another guy “twerking” with a table. To me, this signifies “sex with inanimate objects”, though I’m sure the Satanic meaning goes much, much deeper than that. We also see a gas-mask man and/or astronaut-looking dude in the fish bowl. As to what THAT means, not sure…..? Just like we also see “Baphomet” CRASHING DOWN THROUGH THE WALL AND *JOINING THE PARTY*, sort’ve speak.

We then look back at the TV and see the Big Devil Beast and white figure DANCING IN HARMONY with one another. This to me, signifies the Beast and the False Prophet working in harmony together to destroy mankind from within. And last but not least, you will see “the bodyless jacket” on the coat rack dancing behind the 3 guys [although at ONE point while slowing down the video, I could’ve sworn that the “bodyless jacket” transformed into a black shadowy beast-like creature for a few split seconds but maybe it’s just me] shortly before they exit through the door. In THIS instance, I believe the sides of the coat rack are meant to symbolize the “horns of Baphomet”. Seriously. 

I think the 3 guys exiting out the door and THE SPECIFIC ORDER by which they exit out the door is very significant. They may or may NOT represent 3 of the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse but not sure. The guy dressed in black (death) is followed by the black and white dressed guy, who is then followed by the grey sweatshirt guy. The door that closes behind them is BLACK. The house/apartment being TOTALLY STILL & SILENT after the 3 guys leave might possibly signify martial law but not sure. And then the astronaut-like guy dancing at the end, not sure what that means either but I know it probably means SOMETHING…..

And even just looking at each year’s Superbowl Halftime shows and Grammy Awards (in and of themselves), I can’t help but notice they get more blatantly Satanic each year, save for this year. This year’s performance, while still Satanic, attempted at being more SECRETLY Satanic in plain, toned-down symbolism but symbolism, nonetheless…..

But the most telling signs were Katy Perry riding a GOLDEN BEAST with RED GLOWING EYES that ROARED (think about the Beast from the book of Revelation, folks!) and also her “rising on a star” (goddess worship with herself symbolizing a “goddess”). Now, most people probably won’t get up in arms about these facts because they either don’t care or don’t REALIZE just HOW truly Satanic our world & global society has now BECOME…….Just like most people (sadly) won’t realize until it’s too late that Jesus Christ Almighty (Yeshua) is the ONLY way to receive Salvation/Forgiveness Of Sins AND be set free from one’s sins, the ONLY way to Eternal Paradise after one dies in this life, and the ONLY way to escape ETERNAL condemnation in the flames!

Please, people, I beg of you! If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ and/or haven’t yet submitted yet to Jesus Christ Almighty, there’s no greater time to do so than NOW! For we NEVER know when our last hour on this Earth will be! Just like we NEVER know when a natural or local disaster will strike! Jesus Christ is the ONLY being in the entire universe who can save you from your sins! Anyone that says otherwise is either lying or trying to sell you something! MARK MY WORDS!

I pray that ALL souls who see this blog or this particular post will get saved in the name of Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ and that their faith will pass the test when tested in the fire. I pray that Almighty Yeshua/Jesus Christ will bless them and keep them for eternity and that they will never, ever, EVER stray from the faith once they FIND a true faith in HIM [Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty] and HIM, ALONE, above all other things/religions in this world! I also pray that you, the one and only true Almighty Lord will show them just HOW Satanic today’s world/culture/commercials/tv/movies/music is and how to escape those things. Amen”.
