“Corona Virus” Part Two: Can America “Come Back From This?”

“Could America come back from this?” many are asking. And the truth is, nobody knows. However, there’s only three distinct possibilities here: Either we WILL come back from this Corona thing, we WON’T come back from this Corona thing or we might only PARTIALLY come back from this Corona thing.

SCENARIO 1: America eventually “comes back from this”, the economy recovers, jobs are restored, etc. Now would that be a GOOD thing? Sure. But it can also (in retrospect) be a BAD thing. Why? Because then the average American (and average “Christian” American SPECIFICALLY) will start to take things for granted EVEN MORE than what they did BEFORE the Corona virus! They will then start to harden their hearts to Jesus EVEN MORE because “Hey, things are good now, everything’s good, we don’t need you anymore Jesus! We’ll all good now! Thanks!”

And that’ll just be the nonchalant, stiff-necked, lukewarmed response the AVERAGE Christian will have (as a whole). So imagine just HOW much greater that attitude will be amongst non-believers (as a whole?)

Here in America (up until this point, anyways), we’ve had it SO GOOD! We’ve had freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, you name it! In fact, up until now, America has been considered the “envy” of many other countries who don’t have as many “rights” as we do! Imagine being in a country where you could be thrown in prison just for OWNING a bible or have your head (or other body part?) cut off JUST FOR believing in Jesus, etc! As a whole, We Americans have taken all our rights and our freedoms for granted!

So yes, if we “come back from this”, people are only going to ALL THE MORE (as a whole) take all our rights & our freedoms for granted again and that makes me sad, since this is such a great country and EVERY American is SO, SO LUCKY to have all the rights & privileges that we do here! We have one of the most dedicated militaries in the world and our U.S. service members oftentimes don’t get enough thanks for all that they do to protect us and keep our country safe!

SCENARIO 2: We do NOT “come back from this” and the U.S. economy and world economy is DESTROYED, and a NEW GLOBAL CURRENCY is installed. For any Christian that reads their bible, you know EXACTLY what this would mean: A “Mark of the Beast Society” and/or a “New World Order” talked about in Revelation 13:16-18 and in Revelation 14:9-11!

SCENARIO 3: America “comes back from this” but ONLY PARTIALLY. Meaning, the economic stabilization only happens PARTIALLY or ONLY happens for a few months before things “tank” and “go South” again!

However, this PARTIAL resurgence of the economy will give MOST people (ESPECIALLY Christians) a FALSE SENSE OF HOPE AND SECURITY and much like Scenario 1, people will start taking things for granted again! Most people won’t be prepared! And WHEN and IF the U.S. economy and world economy crashes and comes to a grinding halt, many Christians will later end up falling by the wayside becausehey, a good God isn’t supposed to DO or ALLOW something like that, right? In THEIR minds, God is only supposed to BLESS our U.S. nation and not ever CURSE our U.S. nation for any reason!

But yet, MANY U.S. Christians (as well as several Christians from Westernized nations) out there today don’t yet fully understand the PROVIDENCE of God and the WRATH of God. And folks, it’s NOT their fault. Church pastors, priests and church leaders (as a whole) have NOT done a very good job of PREACHING THE TRUE GOSPEL unto the masses! In fact, I think I’d go so far as to say that we’ve BEEN in apostasy EVER SINCE 323A.D. at the Council of Nicea!

“What happened at the Council of Nicea?” some of you may be wondering. Easy. Constantine was the Roman Emperor at that time. And with the help of “Catholic bishops”, he HIJACKED the JESUS-GLORIFYING JEWISH religion (because remember there were TWO major sects of Judaism at the time: those who RECOGNIZED Jesus as Messiah and those who did NOT recognize Jesus as Messiah) and turned it into a FALSE, watered-down, Pagan-leaning CATHOLIC “form” of “Sun-worshiping religion” and called it “Christianity”.

(Note: Those aren’t “halos” you see painted on Catholic idols in the churches today but represent SUNS! Please notice that the Hindu figure Buddha is ALSO oftentimes surrounded by a “sun halo” as well, in paintings, etc. Which PROVES it’s used to represent SUN WORSHIP, not HALOS!)

The Jews that rejected Jesus that were loyal to Rome? They later went on to become known as “Orthodox Jews”. These came from the Jesus-denying sects of Pharisees & Saducees. The Jews that BELIEVED Jesus was the Messiah? They are now known as “Messianic Jews”, “Judeo-Christians” or the Hebrew term “Natsarim” (pronounced Nat-sir-reem).

And we know from history how the Roman Catholic Church PUT TO DEATH all the TRUE CHRISTIANS (the Lord’s people……..the Jews that BELIEVED Jesus was the Messiah, as well as the “Gentiles” that believed that Jesus was the Messiah AND FOLLOWED the 7th day as the Sabbath, and followed the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS and BIBLICAL PRAYERS AND FASTING, that KNEW that “idols” and “graven images” were FORBIDDEN!)

So what happened? The TRUE RELIGION of Jesus’s people was OUTLAWED between the times of 300-365A.D. and “new laws” were put into place that required those people to CONVERT to the Roman Catholic Church or DIE! The “new laws” had to do with the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS and the 7TH DAY BIBLICAL SABBATH!

The “new laws”, instituted by Constantine and the Roman Catholic Church, required men to WORK on the 7th day BIBLICAL Sabbath and to REST on Sunday, the worship day of Helios, the SUN god! They also FORBADE the Lord’s people from doing “fasting” (a BIBLICAL REQUIREMENT) and FORBADE the Lord’s people to celebrate in the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS! And if the Lord’s people REFUSED homage to the Roman Catholic Church OR to Constantine, they were either tortured, put into prison and/or KILLED! It was THAT serious of an “offense” to NOT be part of the Roman Catholic Church “mark of the beast TYPE system” at that time!

Just look what’s going on TODAY in the world! All “churches” meet on SUN-DAY! The 7th Day BIBLICAL Sabbath has more or less been INSTITUTIONALLY done away with! “Christians” celebrate New Years, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and Easter (which Jesus and the apostles NEVER, EVER CELEBRATED) and most haven’t even HEARD about the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS of Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.

Many believe (and/or have been told): “Oh, those are Jewish holidays, ONLY!” Little do they know, those are actually BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS that weren’t JUST meant for the ancient biblical times but for ALL of time! Note: Even in “New Jerusalem/heaven”, we will STILL be celebrating in the BIBLICAL FEASTS, specifically the FEASTS OF TABERNACLES! It’s true! It’s in the scriptures, folks!

And same goes for the 7TH DAY BIBLICAL SABBATH! It is NOT just the “Jewish Sabbath, only” as many have been led to believe! It’s the one and only true BIBLICAL SABBATH! (Special note: A Jewish day begins at sundown the night before. So it’s from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. Some people celebrate Saturday sunup to sundown but that’s something you’ll have to pray to Yeshua/Jesus about. Me myself, I celebrate it from Friday sundown to Saturday nightfall).

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

So COULD America technically “come back from this?” many are asking. There’s a possibility, yes. However…..we are now what’s in the SPIRITUAL RED DANGER ZONE. What that MEANS, is that we’re now at a VERY critical SPIRITUAL time in American and world history. For America (lets be honest) has shoved Jesus to the back burner for the last few years with Trump as president. Jobs were good for awhile, stocks were good, economy was good.

So BECAUSE America had everything it thought it needed, many Christians put Jesus on the back burner the last couple of years (as a whole), myself included. And it’s an easy, HUMAN thing to do when the economy’s doing GREAT, now, isn’t it, folks? In fact, think of “Pharaoh” in Egypt, whose heart was “hardened” every single time his magicians were able to do the same thing as Moses & Aaron were able to do. Same concept here. Pharaoh and the Egyptians at that time saw no NEED for the God of Israel because things in Egypt were “plentiful” (before the rest of the 10 Plagues of Egypt). Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Ah……but when things are NOT so great, and we (much like Pharaoh did) come to the REALIZATION that our life and our livelihoods are NOT in our hands, that’s when we began to FEAR God and give REVERENCE to God, am I right? In Exodus 10:16-17, Pharaoh begins to FEAR God and give REVERENCE to Him: “Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you. Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only”.

But now that everything has temporarily? gone to crap in this country, people are seeking Jesus like never before! Many are asking “is this the end of the world?”, “are we on the cusp of WWIII?”, “Will America ever come back from this Corona CRISES?”, “is Mark of the Beast just around the corner?”, etc.

But here’s the clincher, folks: This can go ONE of two ways….IF America does NOT come back from this “crises”, then that would mean that things are ONLY gonna get worse and worse until the Antichrist comes and a one world government, economy and religion is put in place. And when THAT happens, it’ll eventually get to the point where Mark of the Beast (Mark of the Antichrist) is instilled on every person’s right hand or forehead in order for them to be able to buy or sell. And ALL who REFUSE this “Mark” will be KILLED, the bible says!

But IF America “comes back from this”, as it were, that could actually end up being a bad thing in the long run, like I’ve said before. Why? Because many people will start to take things for granted again! People will start to take their bibles, Jesus, the country, the economy, stocks, their jobs, their friends/family/pets/coworkers, and “life in America” for granted again! And not only that but people will start to HARDEN their hearts EVEN MORE towards Jesus (as a whole) if America comes back from this. Why did you even make us go through this, to begin with? We will rebuild, we will come back STRONGER many will proclaim in the spirit of Isaiah 9:10!

In Exodus 10:18-20, God “removes the plague” from Egypt, and PHARAOH HARDENS HIS HEART ONCE AGAIN! (And it’s my personal impression that Pharaoh, at THAT point in time, hardened his heart EVEN MORE than before after the plague was removed!!!!!! Or is it just me????)

And he (Moses) went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord. And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt“. But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go” (Exodus 10:18-20)

And there’s a high chance that Jesus won’t be so “patient” or “forgiving” the NEXT time America thumbs up her nose at him with the attitude of Revelation 18:7 “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I SIT A QUEEN, AND AM NO WIDOW, AND SHALL SEE NO SORROW“.

Look at those words, folks! “I SIT A *QUEEN*, AND AM NO WIDOW, AND SHALL SEE NO SORROW”. Okay, lets be brutally honest for a minute, here. America (as a nation), though it was FOUNDED upon the principles of God/the bible, has slowly INCHED AWAY from Jesus and the bible over the years! Now we’ve become a nation of sodomites, murderers, blasphemers, adulterers, liars, Sabbath-breakers, enviers, etc. And just how LONG did we REALLY, TRULY think that Yeshua/Jesus was gonna put up with all that? Just how long?

For the longest time in this country, they’ve held “sodomite parades” and hardly no-one said anything. And they looked up at the sky and, to THEM anyway, “all seemed CALM”. But ya know folks? That was THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM! The STORM of God’s WRATH is now happening all across this country and all across the world. And just how are WE gonna respond? If ever they doubted that God was ANGRY with “sodomy”, they no longer have to DOUBT anymore! For THROUGH this hellacious virus, God has displayed and IS displaying his WRATH! Not JUST towards sodomy, but to an unbelieving, ungrateful, “entitled”, sinful mankind (as a whole!)

Folks, for all we know, this could be it! We might not even HAVE a chance to pull through this thing! An ICBM could hit us tomorrow, the power grid could go out, the banks could collapse, the internet might go down. We are inching closer and closer and closer to the edge of eternity! What happens next? Only the Lord knows! Therefore, we MUST be prepared! So just how PREPARED are you and your family? We are on the very cusp of the thing known in Matthew 24:21 as THE GREAT TRIBULATION: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be“.

Sure, we’ve had tornadoes, we’ve had plagues, we’ve had tsunamis and volcanic eruptions, we’ve had sinkholes, we’ve had major wildfires, we’ve had major animal die off, we’ve had economic meltdowns and stock market crashes, and we’ve had earthquakes. But DO pray tell: have we ever had all of those things SIMULTANEOUSLY ALL AT ONCE? I believe that’s what the bible passage is hinting at, there. But it WON’T just be natural disasters! It will be a SLEW of things happening simultaneously all at once! The following bible passages give us a good idea of what’s to come:

2 Timothy 3: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, [PRICE GOUGERS DURING TIME OF NATIONAL CRISES, ANYONE?] covetous, [JEALOUS OF OTHER PEOPLE], boasters [INSTAGRAM, ANYONE?] proud [PUBLICLY CALLING ONESELF THE BEST _____ EVER, ANYONE?] blasphemers [BRAZILIAN SHOW ABOUT “GAY JESUS”, ANYONE?], disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection [SODOMY/HOMOSEXUALITY, ANYONE?], trucebreakers [REIGNITING OLD FEUDS BETWEEN PEOPLE/COUNTRIES, ANYONE?], false accusers, incontinent, fierce [VICIOUS ATTACKS ONLINE IN COMMENT SECTIONS, ANYONE?], despisers of those that are good [SUING OF JACK PHILIPS, CHRISTIAN BAKERS AND DAVID DELEIDEN, ANYONE?], Traitors, heady, highminded [ACTING AS THOUGH ONE IS “ENTITLED” TO FIRST CLASS, ANYONE?), lovers of pleasures [PORN/SEX OUTSIDE OF TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE, ANYONE?] more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof [FAKE TELEVANGELIST CHRISTIANS IN FAKE SUNDAY-SABBATH CHURCHES, ANYONE?]: from such turn away!“. 

Revelation 6:12-17And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places“. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Revelation 7:1 “And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree”. (NOTE: AFTER the events of Revelation 6, NO WIND shall blow ALL ACROSS THE EARTH! IMAGINE what that will be like, folks!]

But the main point I want to make is that it DOES NOT MATTER if America “comes back from this thing” or not. Because like I said, EVEN if America DOES “come back from this”, it’ll ONLY be a matter of time before THE BIG ONE comes crashing down on every American (and every single person across the world), thus INSTALLING the reign of the Antichrist and the “Mark of the Beast” society on the WORLD STAGE! So I ask you this: are YOU ready? Are YOU prepared? Are YOU prepared to NOT love your life to the death and to love Jesus even UNTO Death? So many of us are NOT ready, folks!

Rather or not “The Rapture” will happen soon, one can only speculate:

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” – (Matthew 24:36)

But after much research, my best guess is that we’ll likely be dealing with a Mid-Tribulation Rapture. Cause even though we’re not appointed to God’s Wrath, neither are we expected to escape all tribulation either as remember that Revelation 7:14 says: “And I [the apostle John] said unto him [the angel of the Lord], ‘Sir, thou knowest’. And he [the angel of the Lord] said to me [the apostle John], ‘These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”

So there, in that passage, the apostle John, having been exiled onto the Greek island of Patmos, is being shown a divine vision by Jesus and/or the angel of the Lord of “the redeemed saints” that came OUT of “Tribulation”; OUT being the key word, here!

Some argue that the Rapture is BEFORE The Mark of the Beast, some day it’s DURING The Mark of the Beast, while yet other says it’s AFTER The Mark of the Beast! But REGARDLESS, we must ALL be ready at ALL times and in ALL ways, AS IF it were to happen TOMORROW! Because remember, WHEN it happens, it likely happens ALL AT ONCE! Babylon is destroyed in just ONE HOUR! Do I believe it to be ONE literal human hour? Yes, I do! Because the scripture implies it happens SUDDENLY and WITHOUT WARNING! If it were any LONGER than 1 literal human hour, humans and nations would have time to SOMEWHAT “come to grasp” with it and recover a bit (in my honest, humble opinion).

Although some are going off a completely different timeline where 1 days equals 1 YEAR! But even if that’s the case, we’d be looking at a period of about 1 month/30 days in which Babylon is “SUDDENLY DESTROYED!” And a period of 30 days is like NOTHING in 2020 time! TIME IS SPEEDING UP, FOLKS!

Yet TWO things are certain: A) Yeshua/Jesus is testing us to see rather or not we’ll be able to stand, having done all TO stand in these Last Days and B) The Devil’s angry cause he knows his time is short! Which means his demons and all his HUMAN “cohorts” ALSO know that they also “have but a short time” to bring in all the SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION they’re gonna bring in, before “time’s end”. Which means the Shadow Gov’t of the World, The New World Order Satanic Cabal, wants to hurry up and get “The Mark of the Beast society” installed or, at the very least, pre-installed (if that makes any sense?)

What we’re going through now is just “testing grounds” FOR such a “society”. It’s almost as if they (The New World Satanic Cabal) are “testing” to see:

  • “How easily will they let us BAN church gatherings and meetings over 10 people?”
  • “How easily will they allow us to MAKE them wear masks/gloves and do x,  y, and z?”
  • “How OPEN will they be to a cashless society?”
  • “How EASILY will they give up all their rights if they think *national security* is at risk?”
  • “How EASILY will we be able to SEPARATE family members from one another, ESPECIALLY husbands and wives?”
  • “How EASILY will we be able to get the people to DEPEND on the gov’t for financial assistance, over time?”
  • “How can we best DIMINISH the faith that people have in Jesus and instead, make them have “faith” in their GOVERNMENT, instead?”
  • “How can we get the conservatives and the majority of Americans to slowly EMBRACE communism/socialism as a seemingly *viable option?*
  • “How can we BEST get people ready to EMBRACE a one world government leader during a time of *GLOBAL/NATIONAL CRISES?*”
  • “If the majority of Americans end up NOT fearing Corona “virus”, what OTHER sorts of things can we use to get Americans and people around the world to FEAR, instead of HAVING FAITH IN JESUS?”
  • “How can we BEST get the American people and the world to turn on Trump and to EMBRACE China, the source of the Corona outbreak?
  • “How can we BEST make Christians and/or patriotic Americans feel like HATERS for speaking the Truth?”
  • And the list goes on and on…….

Do you see what they’re doing here, folks? They’re seeing HOW FAR they can push their “powers” against the American people and against THE WORLD! And they’re SO power-hungry and have been so for SUCH a long time that I just don’t think they’re gonna stop anytime soon, folks!

It wasn’t enough for them that we had LGBT all across every school and college university in America. It wasn’t enough for them that we had “Drag Queen Story Hour” and men with penises using the women’s restrooms, locker rooms, showers and changing rooms. It wasn’t enough for them that many Americans (against their own better judgement) got the flu shot last year. It’s NEVER enough for them, folks! For they ALWAYS want MORE!

More spiritual chaos! More destruction! EVER MORE **POWER!** And they absolutely, positively WILL NOT STOP until they get it, folks! They won’t stop until every man, woman and child in this country has the Mark of the Beast on their right hands or in their foreheads! But see folks, that’s the thing, here. They KNOW that TRUE born-again Christians will NOT take “The Mark” under ANY circumstances. Therefore, they’re now strategizing about just HOW they’re gonna make them take the Mark……

The biggest thing they will plan to use is FEAR! And I believe they will use things that matter to us in order to try to make us take the Mark! Let me elaborate and give an example, here. Most parents love their young children to death. So imagine if they held a small child in front of a Christian parent’s very eyes and threatened to kill that child RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM if they didn’t take The Mark. And when THAT doesn’t work, and the Christian parent refuses The Mark, they will likely up the ante.

They will then start TORTURING and/or somehow VIOLATING the child in front of the parent’s eyes to see if they can then get the parent to take The Mark! By this point in time, many a Christian parent will likely cave, as they HEAR their child’s tortured cries! (And sadly, as soon as the parent takes The Mark, the Satanic cabal will likely slaughter the child right in front of the parent’s eyes anyways, so it will have all been for naught!)

Yet, other Christian parents, REMAINING STEADFAST in the faith, will NOT cave and tell their child to be strong and that they love them and to trust Jesus through it all! That’s when the Satanic cabal will likely change approaches and start torchuring the Christian parent, instead! (Water-boarding, you name it). The Satanic cabal will try torchuring the Christian parent or person as long as possible, until they can try to get them to cave in and take the Mark.

But folks? Satanists CAN NOT STAND the mighty name of Yeshua/Jesus! So in the MIDST of the fiery persecution, SING AND SHOUT PRAISES TO JESUS MOST HIGH! A) It will help you keep morale and B) The Satanic cabal won’t be able to STAND IT and will likely either flee from your presence or kill you off that much sooner, it’s true!

(P.S.: If it’s of any personal comfort to you Christian parents out there, if YOUR child sees you choosing to die rather than take The Mark, that’ll now doubt have a powerful witnessing impact upon them, and they’ll be less likely to take The Mark themselves after you’re gone! Not to mention that as a personal reward to you for your “martyrdom”, I believe with all my heart that Jesus will have a special eye of protection placed on your child for the rest of his/her living days on this Earth! So rest assured, if you place your 100% trust in Yeshua/Jesus Christ, I believe your children will ultimately be in safe hands, never far from the Lord’s eyes!)

And for all of you other Christians out there who have no children, I believe the Satanic cabal will try to use something else against you. They might threaten to torchure your pet/pets, an ex-boyfriend/girlfriend, someone else that really means something to you. They will no doubt threaten to harm/torchure this person RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, unless you take The Mark.

When and if that doesn’t work, they’ll move on to torchuring YOU, instead! And THAT is when you’ll have to TRUST JESUS AND ENDURE, NO MATTER WHAT! And if it’s not a pet or a loved one that they’re threatening to torchure right in front you, they’ll likely try to get you to take The Mark a different way. You might lose your car, you home or your job if you don’t take The Mark. But again, Satan operates on FEAR! It’s one of THE MOST powerful weapons in his arsenal folks, so remember that!

As a side note, I’d just like to add this: They HAVE the cloning technology down to a T! (They just don’t publicly announce it for “security purposes”). So whenever they place a person, pet or loved one in front of you, there’ll be a high chance that it’s NOT EVEN the REAL PERSON or pet you THINK it is but a “cloned version” or “cloned, human-like and/or animal-like Android”of sorts.

Because remember that Satan is a LIAR! Plus he’s also a masquerader! He might even also falsely APPEAR to you in the form of a dead love one/pet or current loved one/pet and BEG you to get The Mark, in order to TRICK YOU! So DON’T fall for it, folks! Ghosts are DEMONS! “Loved ones” begging you to get The Mark are DEMONS! “Loved ones” in your dreams are also likely DEMONS trying to TRICK YOU! So DON’T BE FOOLED, FOLKS!!!!!!

That being said, do I have any “Corona virus” advice for anyone out there? At first glance, it’s easy to panic, it’s easy to focus on the all the negatives. But instead, try to look at the positives. Instead of: “Ugh! I’m quarantined at home and can’t go to work, plus my children and husband are home all the time now”, look at it as a Lord-appointed TIME OUT! When’s the LAST TIME you got some good, quality “family time?” When’s the LAST time you got to officially “play hookey from work” and sit down and breath and RELAX for awhile? When the last time you truly HAD time to sit down and read God’s Written Word (The Bible?) Just like how many times have Christian parents expressed a heartfelt desire to home-school their children? BINGO! All in one! Isn’t the Lord GENIUS? 😉

And if you’re a Christian who’s complaining: “Ugh! I still got to go to work!” Be thankful that you still HAVE a job, even! (Some aren’t so lucky!) And if you’re complaining about a pay cut at your job, fret not! The Lord Jesus is training you to rely on him and HIM ALONE during this time! So trust me, how could SPIRITUAL REFINEMENT ever be a BAD thing, in retrospect? Answer: It isn’t! For it’s ONLY through SPIRITUAL REFINEMENT that we’ll learn how to ENDURE……….ENDURE TILL THE END:

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

And if you’re worried about weekly grocery shopping, consider a HOME DELIVERY MEAL KIT company (I.e. Dinnerly, Blue Apron, EveryPlate, Hello Fresh, etc.) Most of these companies, for a nominal weekly fee, will send you 3-6 meals per week with all of the ingredients for each meal pre-packaged, save for bare produce, so that NOTHING goes to waste! They each come with recipe cards and/or online recipes and take under 30 minutes each to make. Though word of warning, some meal kit companies are NOT accepting new customers at this time, due to the INFLUX of customers during “Corona crises”. And depending on your specific dietary needs, you can probably find one that’s suitable for you and your family!

And last but not least, wash your clothes after going out in public, wash your hands, wear gloves and face masks while shopping if it makes you feel safe but do NOT go overboard on the paranoia and FEAR factor, as that’s just what Satan wants, during this time! And meal delivery kits aside, you should still buy SOME groceries from the store every now and then, even WITH a home meal kit delivery service, because grocery stores still need money to stay afloat. It would be quite a terrible thing if grocery stores were forced to shut down due to low sales now, wouldn’t it? Now…..should you also “prep?” Like, should you have a few things of bottled water and canned beans, if worse comes to worse? Maybe. But there’s a scripture I want to share with you:

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven” – (Matthew 10:26-33)

When you read Matthew 10:26 in light of the “Corona shut-down”, it’s kind’ve interesting. The Lord is pretty much telling us there that we need not fear “Big Pharma”, “The Roman Catholic Church/The Vatican”, “the new world order” or the “shadow government” because their plans will be REVEALED to the Lord’s people! The 2nd-4th parts of the passage are telling us we should fear the Lord’s Wrath MORE than the people of Satan who try to kill us since unlike Satan’s people that will try to kill us, the Lord above has the ability to kill both our body AND our soul (meaning, the Lord has the ability to send both our body AND soul to hell/the lake of fire, while Satan’s people ONLY have the ability to kill the body, that’s it! 

The Lord promises he will feed us and account for all our needs during “The Great Tribulation” and that we MUST proclaim him to ALL mankind. For IF we are ashamed of Jesus and his gospel, that means our HEARTS are not right with HIM and that we need to REPENT before it’s too late! REPENT simply means to GIVE UP or STOP DOING the behaviors that are displeasing to Yeshua/Jesus! STOP being ashamed of Yeshua/Jesus and his gospel! STOP caring more about what PEOPLE think of you, rather than what YESHUA/JESUS thinks of you for what YESHUA/JESUS thinks of you will be the DECIDING FACTOR of WHERE you will turn up for all eternity after your death in this earthly life!

And last but not least:

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

Romans 8: 31-39What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

Translation? Yeshua/Jesus has ALREADY overcome the world, Satan, death and hell. NOTHING can happen outside of HIS power! And NOTHING can separate us from the LOVE of God! Yeshua/Jesus sees us, wherever we go! We are never far from his site! I hope and pray that this post has encouraged and been a blessing to someone out there today that needed to hear these words! 

This is an unprecedented time in human and global history. And I have NO IDEA what’s gonna happen tomorrow, 2 months from now, or even 2 years from now. All I know is that the One World Government is soon on the horizon, as is The Mark of the Beast/Mark of the Beast Global Society/System, as is the soon return of Yeshua/Jesus Christ. THIS is America’s (and ultimately the world’s) “Time of Testing”. Yeshua/Jesus is testing OUR hearts (the heart of our nation(s) to see rather or not we spiritually crave HIM more than we crave the world/the things of the world! Therefore, if we’re ready at ALL times and in ALL ways, NOTHING will come to take us by surprise, right folks?

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace”

– Numbers 6:24-26

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you”

– Matthew 17:20

Amen.

 

 

IMPORTANT: The Torah Still Applies!!! (Part ONE)

Many people TODAY – both Christian AND non-Christian alike – take such a “liberal” view when it comes to God’s law in the Old Testament! They try telling themselves that they no longer have to follow the 10 commandments since “Jesus already payed for the law on the cross” and that The Old Testament “was for the Jews, ONLY!” But what does Jesus HIMSELF teach on the matter? Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

Many people don’t know this (and even I MYSELF didn’t know this until a couple years ago) but Jesus actually made SEVERAL appearances in the OLD TESTAMENT as a pre-incarnate. He was ALL THE FOLLOWING:

  • The “tree of life” in the Garden of Eden
  • The “pillar of cloud” by day and the “pillar of fire” by night that led Moses & the Israelites out of Egypt
  • The “mighty wind” that parted the Red Sea
  • The “burning bush not consumed” that spoke with Moses
  • The “foreign visitor” that talked to Abraham outside his tent as well as the “King of Salem” that BLESSED Abraham
  • The one that “fought with Jacob” all throughout the night
  • The “Son of Man” in the fiery furnace of Nebuchadnezzar with Daniel’s 3 friends
  • The one who “closed the mouths of lions” in the Lion’s Den with Daniel
  • The “angel of the Lord” besides Joshua at the battle of Jericho
  • The “Hand on the Wall” writing a decree of “Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin” against Belshazzar during Belshazzar’s “Babylonian-style” feast that used the golden & silver vessels from the TEMPLE in Jerusalem around 539B.C. or so?
  • Etc.?

Next, I’d like to examine SEVERAL bible passages concerning the ETERNAL NATURE OF JESUS/GOD:

Psalm 90:2

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

Isaiah 40:28

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

Hebrews 13:18

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

1 Timothy 1:17

To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 8:58

Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.

2 Peter 3:8

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Titus 1:2

In hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised BEFORE the ages began.

1 Corinthians 2:7

But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.

Hebrews 1:8

But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Hebrews 1:2

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world;

Okay, now that we’ve established that God/Jesus is ETERNAL, what about his WORDS? His LAW? Are THEY eternal? Once again, let us examine the evidence:

Matthew 24:35

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words SHALL NOT pass away

Matthew 5:17-18

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL. 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

John 14:15

“If ye love me, keep my commandments

[*NOT TO MENTION THAT MATTHEW, CHAPTERS 5 TO 7, ALSO KNOWN AS THE “SERMON ON THE MOUNT” OR “THE OLIVIET DISCOURSE” EXPOUNDS ON THE 10 COMMANDMENTS AND TALKS ABOUT THEIR ORIGINAL *INTENT!*]

In Matthew 24:35, Jesus is telling us that his WORDS will LAST FOREVER! In Matthew 5:17-18, Jesus is telling us that he DID NOT come to destroy the law! And in John 14:15, Jesus is quoted as saying that IF we love him, to KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS! Therefore, that certainly doesn’t SEEM in any way, shape or form that Jesus wants us to NEGLECT the 10 commandments (or their original “intent”) under ANY circumstances!!!!! But rather, he seemed to want us to OBEY them!

Acts 10: 34-35Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him”.

Ephesians 6:9 “And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him”

Romans 2:11 “For there is no respect of persons with God”

Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus”

Acts 10:34, Ephesians 6:9, Romans 2:11, and Galatians 3:28 etc. all show us that Jesus is not a God of “partiality!” In other words, EVERYONE that believes in Him and OBEYS Him is EQUAL! And EVERYONE that sins against Him is JUDGED by Him for he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT Judge! So in other words, there IS no such thing in Jesus’s eyes as “Jew” or “Gentile”, those are MAN-MADE CONSTRUCTS!!!!!!

So THAT being said, does it REALLY make any sense that God/Jesus would tell the Jewish people ONE thing/ONE set of commandments and then turn around and tell the Christians ANOTHER thing/ANOTHER set of commandments or NO commandments? OFCOURSE NOT! He’s NOT gonna tell one set of people: “No pork! It’s an abomination unto you!” and then turn around and tell ANOTHER set of people in the future that they COULD have pork….IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!!!!! Think about it. If ONE set of people could ever say to Him: “Hey! That’s not fair! How come THEY get this but WE don’t?”, then he wouldn’t be God as he is a FAIR and CONSISTENT judge AND law-giver! 

God/Jesus did NOT go to the Jews of Old Testament and tell them that THEY had to follow the 7th day Sabbath, the 7-8 Biblical Holidays and the BIBLICAL dietary laws and then turn around during the times of the New Testament and say to the Christians that they were free to do, celebrate and eat WHATEVER THEY WANTED! For if he did, A) He wouldn’t be God, and B) That wouldn’t be fair! And we KNOW from the scriptures that Jesus is a FAIR and CONSISTENT God and a FAIR and CONSISTENT JUDGE! Because if he wasn’t, he’d be a liar and JESUS CAN NOT LIE!

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

Therefore, if Jesus Christ is ETERNAL, and DOES NOT CHANGE, and said HIMSELF that he DID NOT come to destroy the law, we can safely conclude that neither has Jesus’s LAW ever changed, either! In fact, the Sermon on the Mount (talked about in Matthew chapters 5-7 in the New Testament) seemed to ENHANCE the biblical law!

From my best spiritual understanding, we are saved by grace through faith PLUS obedience! (John 14:15, Matthew 7:21-23, etc.) For if you have obedience WITHOUT faith, the obedience is in vain! And if you have faith WITHOUT obedience onto the Lord’s commandments, that’s also vain, too! But if you have FAITH + OBEDIENCE, then you have been truly “born again” by the spirit of God/Jesus Christ through GRACE!

However, there are still those who claim that Jesus’s quote in Matthew 26:26-28 during the last supper about “making a new covenant” means that we no longer have to REPENT (that means to “make amends” for/pray for forgiveness OF) sin! But if we go to the King James version, we have the word TESTAMENT instead of COVENANT. Every version from NEW King James Version and on translates the word as COVENANT. And both the words have slightly different meanings! A “covenant” is like a “marriage contract” for instance. But a “testament” is something that lasts forever!

The Authorized King James Version and King James Version are the most closest bible translations, as it pertains to the Hebrew and the Greek. The NEW King James Version and on distort MANY, MANY words and phrases [http://www.av1611.org/nkjv.html] And in fact, THE APOCRYPHA wasn’t even taken out of the King James Bible until the late 1800’s or so! [https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Apocrypha-Books/]

[IMPORTANT: As a side note, I have found these GREAT publications of the KJV that also INCLUDE the Apocrypha:

https://www.amazon.com/Holy-Bible-James-Version-Apocrypha/dp/1480007889/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=KJV+bible+%2B+apocrypha&qid=1578787315&sr=8-3

https://www.amazon.com/Cepher-3rd-2018-Revision-C3R1/dp/0692998047/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+cepher&qid=1578787888&sr=8-1

Many Christians today seem to want to “pick the best bible version that WORKS FOR THEM, the “best church that WORKS for them“, the “best denomination that WORKS FOR THEM“. In other words, they seem to asking the question: “What works BEST for ME?”, instead of asking the fateful question: “What does GOD/Jesus WANT/EXPECT from ME and FOR me, as it pertains to obedience and worship?” In other words, they’re not asking the fateful question: “Where does GOD/JESUS want ME right now?” 

But regardless, even when a person is in/currently attending the INCORRECT church, reading the TAINTED bible version(s), and in the WRONG DENOMINATION(S), Jesus can still use that experience to TEACH a person (by means of the Holy Spirit) what IS and what IS NOT the true gospel (provided that person has a TRUE HEART to want to know what is of God and what is NOT of God!)

Note: Jesus did that with ME, with both the Catholic and Mormon churches in the past and he can most certainly do that with OTHERS, as well! In other words, he might sometimes purposely PLACE a person in the WRONG CHURCH in order to teach them what the TRUE CHURCH *is*, if that makes any sense? Let me elaborate. When I was a “baby Christian” (after I had started reading the gospel for myself ALL THE WAY THROUGH around the ages of 19-21 or so), I still had NO IDEA what alot of the gospel meant by the ages of 23 and on. So I was “easy fodder” for both the Catholic and Mormon churches to “deceive me” at that time.

However, AFTER I prayed to the Lord Jesus for SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING and SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT, I once again read the King James Bible straight through, cover to cover and then gained a “newfound understanding” about what IS and what is NOT the gospel. And it wasn’t until about the age of 30 or so that I FINALLY began to see just how EVIL and WRONG and INACCURATE the Roman Catholic Church and “institutionalized Christianity” REALLY IS! And sadly, it wasn’t until the age of about 33 or so that I gained the FULL KNOWLEDGE that I have now that the “Judeo-Christian” path is the ONLY fully CORRECT bible interpretation and way of life!

From the outside looking in, it seems “harsh” or “narrow-minded” to say (in retrospect): “This is the ONLY fully correct bible interpretation and way of life”. But it’s true. I have not been able to find ONE error in the Judeo-Christian path so far, NOT ONE! And I am a MOST DILIGENT seeker of God’s Word (Jesus) and God’s Written Word (The Bible). The several scriptures that I’ve shared with you are to PROVE that we still need to honor the BIBLICAL SABBATH (the 7th Day) and the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (Passover, Tabernacles, First-fruits, etc.!)

Also….please remember: The Roman Catholic Church and today’s “institutionalized church” write them off as “Jewish holidays, ONLY”. But they are NOT “Jewish holidays” only, they are BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS. And not only that, but they weren’t only for Jewish people and “biblical times”, they were meant for ALL of the Lord’s people, for ALL time! (Note: Did you know for example that Jesus will STILL have people celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles etc. during the New Millennium? It’s true! Read your bibles!)

That now being said, there’s a couple verses that I want us to now take a closer look at….

Colossians 2:16-17

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ

Acts 10:28

“And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any MAN common or unclean

Matthew 15:16-20

And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man”

Many Christians today want to interpret Peter’s vision of the animals on a sheet in Acts 10 as a sign that ALL FOOD IS CLEAN and OK to eat. HOWEVER…..Peter later understands the ANIMALS in the vision were used to represent PEOPLE (as in, different groups of PEOPLE). Therefore, that’s when Jesus showed Peter in a vision that ALL PEOPLE were meant to receive the gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ and NOT JUST the Jews!!!!!

And in Matthew 15:16-20, the Pharisees were asking Jesus why he and his 12 disciples did not “ritually wash” their hands before eating, so Jesus was explaining to them WHY He and his disciples DID NOT have to ritually wash their hands before eating! In other words, He was emphasizing to the Pharisees that THE WORDS that come out of a man are what DEFILES a man and not HIS UNWASHED HANDS! Jesus never said diet wasn’t important, He just emphasized that more emphasis is placed on the WORDS of man, rather than his “ritual practices” before eating.

As for Colossians 2:16-17, Jesus is telling US (the Messianic Jews/Judeo-Christians) to not let ANY Christian/NON-Christian/NON-Judeo-Christian/NON-Messianic Jew judge US (the Judeo-Christian/Messianic Jew) *FOR* following the BIBLICAL 7th Day Sabbath (Saturday), the 7 BIBLICAL holidays (Passover, Tabernacles, Pentecost, etc.) and the BIBLICAL dietary laws (NO PORK, SHELLFISH, ETC.) Make sense?

One does not have to go far to see all the “adversity” towards “Judeo-Christians/Messianic Jews” today. You’ll often hear things such as the following:

  • “We’re under a new covenant now, we no longer need to follow the Old Testament!”
  • “Well, those holidays are for Jews, only. What, you gonna convert to Judaism now or something?”
  • “But Peter was shown that ALL animals are clean for eating! I can eat pork and shellfish if I want to!”
  • “Uh! Quit telling me not to celebrate the Pagan Christian holidays! Who are YOU to judge ME? Tradition is tradition and so what! It doesn’t harm a person to follow Pagan Christian traditions! You’re splitting hairs on this, you’re such a Judaizer!” 
  • “Jesus has one set of laws for the Jews and one set of laws for the Christians. He judges each group by their OWN set of laws!”
  • “If you want to follow the “Jewish” laws and feasts, you should go to a synagogue!”
  • “You can’t be both “Jewish” AND Christian! You either need to be one or the other!”

Those are some of the most common arguments against “Messianic Judaism/Judeo-Christianity”. However, I’d like to examine a few more bible passages that explain how and why Jesus works on a “continuum”. He doesn’t start something without finishing it.

Philippians 1:6 states: “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Here, the “day of Jesus Christ”, in my humble opinion, is talking about the 2nd arrival of Jesus upon the Earth in his holy, fully-glorified form. So in other words, the law and the work that was done in ancient Israel by Jesus Christ will be FULLY COMPLETED in the “New Israel”, if that makes any sense? Everything works on a “continuum” in the Kingdom of God. This is a passage that has a two-fold meaning.

On the one hand, it’s talking about the SPIRITUAL nation of Israel (as a WHOLE) ALL THROUGHOUT TIME and on another hand, it’s talking about each INDIVIDUAL person that comprises the SPIRITUAL NATION OF ISRAEL (if that makes any sense?) Because remember that not ALL physical Jews living in Israel at the time of Jesus embraced God’s Laws and God’s Messiah (Jesus).

Those ones were considered “children of Israel” in name ONLY but NOT in SPIRIT! (Remember the various Old Testament passages where it said “the children of Israel once again turned to idols/idolatry”, etc.?) And I want to be VERY CLEAR on this as well: a Jewish person themselves IS/WAS a part of the SPIRITUAL nation of Israel if and when they fully accept(ed) Jesus as Messiah and obeyed/obey his commands!

Now, let us examine a few more bible passages concerning the “continuation” of Jesus’s law:

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” – Matthew 24:35

Okay, so what can we gather from that? We know from several other scriptures (Isaiah 65:17, Revelation 21:1, Revelation 21:23) that the CURRENT heaven and Earth will BE DESTROYED and/or FOLDED UP LIKE A SCROLL, while a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH will be CREATED and BROUGHT DOWN TO EARTH. However, the WORDS OF GOD shall EXIST FOREVER! Therefore, it stands to reason: if his WORDS last forever, then that must also mean that his LAW lasts the ENTIRE BIBLE (beginning to End) – minus the animal sacrifices from Old Testament as soon as Jesus came to Earth the first time! 

Matthew 5:17-18 has something to say about the matter: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 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.”

Therefore we know that there’s still PLENTY of stuff to be fulfilled: The Mark of the Beast, The Antichrist, The War of Armageddon, The New Heaven and New Earth, The Great White Throne Judgement, etc.] So what that passage is saying is that UNTIL everything is fulfilled and I mean, E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G., the BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS and BIBLICAL LAW **STILL APPLY!**

The only reason the biblical LAW will be done away with at the very END of Revelation 22 is because it will NO LONGER BE NEEDED for ALL who live in New Jerusalem at that time will be considered righteous, holy and untainted/WITHOUT SIN!

But a couple other passages that REALLY speak to my spirit concerning the matter are the following:

Please note that this first passage is said in FOUR different ways: Mark 7:7-9 and verse 13, respectively:

  • “HOWBEIT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN
  • “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do”.
  • And he said unto them, ‘Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition”
  • “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye”

Mark 7:7 IMMEDIATELY makes me think of all the “traditions” floating around today, that “the church” has taught over the years (Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, LGBT infiltration of schools/churches, “the law has been done away with” movement, “church entertainment”, etc). And think about it for a minute. WHAT or WHO has created all those “traditions?” They most certainly didn’t come from Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS ANGELS!

Jesus and the disciples never ONCE celebrated Christmas or Easter! Jesus and his disciples never ONCE welcomed practicing sodomites into the synagogues or made services all about the music and “entertainment”, rather than the MESSAGE! If John the Baptist or Paul were walking around today, observing how FAR all the modern-day churches have STRAYED from Jesus and his gospel, they’d be one of two things: RIGHTEOUSLY ANGRY, CRYING BITTER, BITTER TEARS or BOTH!

But two of the things they’d likely be MOST TROUBLED ABOUT is Paganized, masonic churches meeting on Sunday, the FALSE man-made gospel, rather than the TRUE biblical gospel (Saturday, the 7th day) and OPEN SODOMITES in the church and the “embracing” of OPEN SODOMY! They’d probably quickly run outside to throw up, their righteous spirits would be SO disturbed by what they saw! Therefore, it stands to reason: if Jesus and his disciples would be “disturbed” or “confused” by what they saw going on in modern-day churches today, then should mankind BE doing those abominable things? It begs of question!

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

 

This isn’t unlike another passage in Luke 16:15 which states: “And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God“. 

So lets unpack these two bible passages a bit. In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus is telling us that VERY FEW people find the STRAIGHT and NARROW gate (i.e. SPIRITUAL DOORWAY) which leads to LIFE! What is LIFE? It is JESUS HIMSELF! Jesus says in John 14:6:“…….I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME”. Put differently, Jesus is more or less telling us in that bible verse that he’s the ONLY way to Eternal Salvation/Eternal Life/Eternal Life with Him in “New Jerusalem” someday.

However, in telling us that the spiritual doorway/pathway to HIM and his ETERNAL TRUTH is NARROW, STRAIGHT and HARD TO FIND, He is ALSO telling us that the spiritual doorway/pathway to ETERNAL DESTRUCTION is VERY BROAD, WIDE, and VERY EASY to find! That’s why MOST PEOPLE will take THAT (i.e. the “easy”) way in life, instead of the STRAIGHT and NARROW way. Therefore, the NUMBER of people who will TRULY be saved by Jesus is very, very SMALL….a SMALL REMNANT:

“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” – Luke 12:32

In other words, it is God the Heavenly’s Father GOOD PLEASURE to give the eternal kingdom of God to the SMALL REMNANT who TRULY believed in Jesus, obeyed him and called upon His name, instead of taking the more “popular” way in life! Meaning, they were willing to suffer persecution for Jesus’s name and for righteousness’s sake!

They were WILLING to suffer persecutions at home, in the workplace, abroad, online. They were WILLING to be mocked, laughed at, scorned, arrested on false “hate” charges, etc. They were WILLING to be imprisoned, killed, tortured and/or maimed for Jesus’s sake! They were WILLING to keep preaching the gospel in spite of low number of subscribers, low number of listeners and/or watchers and/or low number of congregants!

On the other hand, Jesus is letting us know right there in those passages that many, many, MANY people are on their way to hell/the lake of fire (even many whom call themselves “Christians”:

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – 2 Timothy 3:5

(Note: does the above passage remind anyone of famous televangelist preachers and/or the Pope? Or the “holier than thou Christians” seen in many churches and Christian online communities today? I sure hope so!)

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

In other words, just because you “call” yourself a Christian DOES NOT MEAN that you are truly born again per say, in JESUS’S EYES! Just “calling” yourself Christian or a believer in Jesus isn’t enough! You have to do the “talk” AND walk the “walk!” Meaning, you MUST obey Jesus’s commandments, and NOT just merely “believe” in him! Luke 21:36 states: “Watch therefore, and pray ALWAYS that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

And moseying on over to Luke 16:15, that passage is letting us know that what’s POPULAR among mankind in today’s world (i.e. think the “worship” of celebrities, vlogs, TicToc, Instagram, Facebook, LGBT “rights” and “propaganda”, “abortion”, “sodomy”, “pre-marital sex”, Youtube, videogames, “eating pork/shellfish/unkosher foods”, reality shows, secular movies/music/books, “socialistic ideals”, “trends”, etc.) is abomination in the sight of God. Jesus doesn’t like us worshiping celebrities etc. because it has the potential to damn our souls to eternal condemnation if we don’t REPENT (that means, to give up) such “worldly things” and “worldly behavior”. 

Therefore, whenever you see a “popular trend” among mankind, or see people just ranting and raving about how good this show is, how good these chips are, how good this movie is or how good that book is, you can almost be certain that that very “thing” is an abomination in the sight of God. However, interestingly enough, I DO NOT think the same criteria of Luke 16:15 applies to good CHRISTIAN things/music/materials. Because if something TRULY glorifies Jesus, why would Jesus NOT glory in it? Ya know? 

========

Yet another passage I’d like to share is Isaiah 29:13 which states: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid”

So here, we can see from this passage that many “Christians” and “Jews” and even many “Judeo-Christians” THEMSELVES, honor Jesus with their LIPS (going around saying “Praise God”, “Praise Jesus, etc.) but yet, their SPIRITUAL *HEART* is far FROM him!

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” – Matthew 6:21

Therefore, BECAUSE their spiritual HEART is far from him, he’s gonna CONFOUND (that means CONFUSE or LEAD ASTRAY/INTO CIRCLES) those who consider themselves “wise” or of whom others consider to be “wise” and he’s gonna HIDE the true gospel and TRUE biblical teachings from those who refuse or desire NOT to see them (i.e. mockers/scoffers, lukewarm Christians, the prideful/arrogant, the staunch atheists, the apathetic, etc.)

We see alot of that in the modern-day churches (and even modern-day Christian music industry, today). People substitute the word “God” for “Jesus” in alot of places, and try to make that “god” an all-encompassing god (i.e. claiming the God of the bible is the same as “Allah”, etc.) Well folks, the God of the bible is NOT in any way, shape or form the same god as “Allah” or any OTHER lower-case g god! The God of the bible is the ONLY true God! This is expressly spoken all throughout scripture! 

There’s also alot of people that “go to church” once a week, but then NEGLECT Jesus and his gospel the rest of the week. These are the people who “praise Jesus” in church but then revert back to their OWN lives the rest of the week! These are the people who say: “Sure, I believe in Jesus, he was a great moral teacher” or “Yeah, I believe in Jesus so I’ll automatically go to heaven just for believing in Jesus, ALONE”. Their LIPS praise Jesus but their HEARTS are far from Him! 

Let us examine Matthew 6:21 in a bit more detail: Where is your TREASURE? What are you MOST FOCUSED ON in life? What do you spend your MONEY on? (Most biblical scholars agree that your “treasure” is biblically and spiritually defined as what you most spend your MONEY on!)

In fact, there is SO much pressure in today’s society to “fit in” that people will buy things just to PROVE they have money and just to PROVE they’re not poor! And that’s where you get the concept of people “treasuring” material things/wealth MORE than they “treasure” Jesus/the gospel!

So in conclusion, in order to FULLY obey God/Jesus Christ, one must follow and obey the COMPLETE bible, not just HALF the bible! And to follow ALL the bible, we must have a true spiritual HEART for the bible! (Meaning, we must consider God’s Law above ALL other worldly things in our lives!) For HALF the bible is only HALF the truth! Please remember that Jesus is revealed IN the law and IN the biblical Sabbaths and IN the biblical feasts! Jesus is TRUTH! Only following HALF of the bible or HALF of the law is SPIRITUALLY HALF-HEARTED!

Think about it, folks! If we only obeyed the laws of the New Testament and not the Old, we’ve done ourselves a SERIOUS disservice! Same if we ONLY followed the laws of the Old Testament but not the New! We can’t just use the bible as a cafeteria line and pick which parts we want to follow and which parts not, it doesn’t work that way! Scripture determines scripture, FEELINGS don’t determine scripture!

HE IS RISEN!!! :-)

The whole entire CORE of Christianity rests on rather or not Jesus rose from the dead! Well, SEVERAL sources (both Christian and non-Christian) say he DID:

https://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

**SEVERAL Eyewitness Accounts**

  1. Mary Magdalene saw Him on the morning following the Sabbath (John 20:14-18, Mark 16:19).

  2. The other Mary (mother of Jesus?) – along with Mary Magdalene – ALSO saw him (Matthew 28:9-10).

  3. He appeared to Peter (1 Corinthians 15:5).

  4. He revealed Himself to His brother James (1 Corinthians 15:7).

  5. Two disciples on the road saw Him in the afternoon (Luke 24:13-40, Mark 16:12-13).

  6. In the evening, He came to the eleven remaining disciples (minus Thomas) as they met in the Upper Room (John 20:19-23, Mark 16:14, Luke 24:36-49).

  7. He appeared in Galilee to a gathering of more than five hundred followers (1 Corinthians 15:6).

  8. He came again to the Eleven eight days later + Thomas (making it 12) —that is, eight days later (John 20:26-31).

  9. After His disciples returned to Galilee, seven of them met Him on the shore of the sea (John 21:1-22).

  10. ETC.

And think about it, folks….Specifically #7! A delusion is something that ONE person usually sees. So just how common would it be for 500 people ALL AT ONCE to see a “delusion?” Answer: It wouldn’t be, so that’s how we know that what those 500 people saw was AUTHENTIC and REAL!

Plus….not to mention…..ALL of Jesus’s disciples (minus Judas Iscariot, who ofcourse committed suicide) + Matthias died a death of MARTYRDOM! So why would a large group of people WILLINGLY suffer persecution, torchure, imprisonment and/or DEATH for a LIE? Answer: They wouldn’t, therefore they CLEARLY believed and personally WITNESSED Jesus BEING the Son of God & also being risen from the dead! EVEN NON-CHRISTIAN SOURCES CONFIRM THIS FACT!

Plus here are a few more additional sources which document Jesus’s existence in general (outside of the bible).

4. https://www.bethinking.org/jesus/ancient-evidence-for-jesus-from-non-christian-sources

5). Lee Strobel presentation about his TRUE-LIFE story of going from atheism to Christianity, as well as the various evidences for Jesus’s resurrection, IN DETAIL

6). “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel (the actual BOOK…….Note: this came BEFORE the movie of the same name!!!!)

the case for christ.jpg

7). The actual MOVIE called “Case for Christ” 

8). And not only that, but there’s always something called “THE EMBARRASSMENT FACTOR”. For back in ancient, biblical times, the “testimony” of a woman was considered “weak”, “unimportant” and “not believable”.

On the other hand, one of the Lord’s 10 commandments was NOT to lie or “bear false witness”. And so, the believing Christian male disciples around Jesus’s time considered honesty to be SUCH an important virtue to uphold, that they were willing to “risk reputation/embarrassment”, even if it meant they had to RECORD in written testimony the (gasp!) “eyewitness account testimony of A WOMAN/WOMEN, as it pertained to Jesus’s resurrection”. 

And back in ancient, biblical times, there was NOT too many historical documents floating around. So to have THAT much non-Christian evidence of Jesus’s death & resurrection is pretty compelling!

[But again, I have SEEN Jesus Christ personally during an N.D.E., so I HAVE no reason not to believe!] However, in John 20:29, Jesus states the following:

“Jesus saith unto him, ‘Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed”. 

Translation? Though I have seen during an N.D.E. (as many others have as well), particularly BLESSED are those who have NOT personally seen Jesus in an N.D.E. or dream/vision, and yet, BELIEVE! 😉 

The brutal reality is that it takes FAR MORE FAITH to believe that Jesus’s crucifixion or resurrection DIDN’T happen, than to believe IT DID! 😉 

As you read this and mull over all the evidence, I hope that the Spirit of Truth (The Holy Spirit) will kindly & boldly minister to you and teach you all the Lord’s truths that you’ve been missing, up to this point! And May the Lord Jesus Bless You & Keep You For All Eternity! Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

“IDOLS” in Modern Day Society

It’s always been funny how historians or pop culture reporters always describe certain people as “modern day icons”/”20th century icons” or how people on online message boards will say “he/she’s always been my idol” or someone on tv will say “like, oh my gosh, you guys are my IDOLS!”

But the thing that’s caught the most attention with me lately concerning idols are three main things: 1) the TV show in and of itself called American Idol (truly think about what the name implies), the over-exposure of Lady Gaga in the media/travel industry/schools, and also the very nature of idols themselves within the Catholic Church.

Of previous notice to me was always how certain people/reporters will describe musicians as “the king of Pop”, “the rock n’ roll gods”, “the god of guitar”, “the god of rock” or even songs themselves that have lyrics such as “we’re fighting with the gods of war”.

But one thing is certain: modern day society is saying that it’s OK to idolize things or people, that it’s OK to have idols or even to BE an idol. Look no further than Hollywood, CA where the majority of modern day “idols” reside. People hysterically SCREAMING in excitement and crying tears of joy as they try to touch their “idol” (that is, their idolized celebrity) just once.

But tell me. When is the last time that anyone ever got that excited about Jesus Christ?

Well, I’ll tell you when, to be precise. It was around the time when Jesus Christ made his triumphant entry into Jerusalem and people layed down their cloaks to cover up his path and waved palm branches at him and possibly screamed and cried in excitement as he passed by, riding on a donkey.

So let me ask you this. Who or what is the “main attraction and/or focus” in YOUR life? Is it Jesus Christ (the one and only true God)? Or is it another (including yourself?)

Many Satanists/Atheists/Agnostics/Intellectuals today say or claim that they don’t actually worship Satan but instead worship themselves (Humanism). However, by refusing to worship Jesus Christ and by worshipping themselves and or this world or the things IN this world, they ARE, in an indirect sense, worshipping Satan and don’t even realize it (or don’t care, one of the two).

Others are on the active path of following other religions and/or other gods. And they too, are on an active path of worshipping Satan without even realizing it.

See, here’s the brutal reality. Whoever doesn’t worship Jesus Christ IS worshipping Satan. They do not necessarily have to have the official label of “Satanist” to BE a “Satanist” in God’s eyes.

The truth of the matter is, there’s only TWO choices one can make. They can choose to live FOR God/Jesus Christ or they can choose to live AGAINST God/Jesus Christ. There is NO other way. NONE.

Light vs. Dark, Good vs. Evil. We each pick a side to live on and then later on, after we die, we enter into eternal existence. But the question is, where will YOU spend eternity? Because where we spend eternity depends on what side we were on while we were living our lives on Earth. Did we live FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ?

Let us examine the 10 commandments.

1. Thou shall have no other gods before me (“gods” like Buddha, Allah, Joseph Smith, Zenu, money, fame, celebrities, the “worshipping” of people or things other than Jesus Christ Almighty, etc.)

2. Thou shall have unto thee no idols or graven images (anything that is in heaven, on Earth below or down below the Earth)

3. Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain (saying the word “God” without any sincere spiritual reference to God Almighty, even if it’s just something “simple” like “oh my God, you’re such a dork, dude!”)

4. Thou shall remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy (to remember means to ADHERE to it — Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, the TRUE 7th day Sabbath — remember that Jewish time begins as Sunset, the night before — and NOT Sun-day, the FALSE Sabbath!)

5. Thou shall not commit adultery (and that includes even doing so much as lusting after someone in one’s heart that one is not married to!)

6. Thou shall honor thy father and thy mother

7. Thou shall not kill (and that includes even doing so much as hating someone in your heart)

8. Thou shall not steal (even if it’s just as something as simple as ONE penny or a pen from the bank……..like, SERIOUSLY…..)

9. Thou shall not lie (EVEN if one thinks it is in one’s best interests).

10.  Thou shall not envy/wish for things that belong to others (how MANY times have we thought to ourselves thoughts like “I wish *I* had a clean house like so and so did or I wish *I* was as skinny as so and and so, etc., etc? Lets be honest with ourselves, here!)

[Please also note that the Lord Jesus Christ expanded on most of these in his Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew, chapters 5-7 and also that the Sabbath was created long before Moses EVER walked the Earth, which would indicate the Sabbath is for ALL of mankind, and not just some].

Okay, Romans 3:23 says “for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Therefore, what that means in plain English is that NOBODY is perfect. We’ve all sinned in God’s eyes, we’ve all made mistakes.

However, there is some good news and that’s this. John 3:16 says “for God [the Heavenly Father] so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believeth in him [Jesus Christ] should not perish [go to eternal condemnation] but have everlasting life [eternity with Jesus Christ in Paradise].

So essentially what that means is if we have faith in Jesus Christ, acknowledge our sins to Jesus Christ in prayer, pray for forgiveness of our sins, repent/give up our sins, get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, spread the gospel to all nations and lead a life that’s pleasing to Jesus Christ by obeying all his commandments [such as 10 commandments, and all New Testament teachings — specifically, the Sermon on the Mount teachings), we’ll be forgiven of ALL our sins when we die and assured a spot in eternal paradise with Jesus Christ someday.

All the rest will go to hell and/or eternal condemnation in an everlasting fire. Jesus described hell in Luke 13:28 “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out”. In other words, every single person that dies without ever truly accepting or trusting Jesus Christ (meaning, having true faith in him) will be eternally cast out.

However, at some point right before, during, or after the time a person is cast out from eternal paradise with Jesus Christ, Jesus says that person will see all the prophets of God standing in the kingdom of God/eternal paradise. And to be cast out from the kingdom of God means to be burnt alive with fire – for eternity.

But going back to the 10 commandments. We already KNOW why modern day society openly violates all 10 commandments, especially the 2nd and 4th one; (the TRUE Sabbath is actually on SATURDAY and is from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).

Modern day American society is “Babylonian” and full of nothing but darkness because it’s controlled by Satan. It WANTS to keep you entertained. It WANTS to take you AWAY from God/Jesus Christ. It WANTS you to worship other gods besides Jesus Christ (notice how rock music NEVER mocked Buddha, Allah, Joseph Smith, etc? Why is that, do you think? Think about it. Birds of a feather flock together)

It WANTS you to lie, cheat and steal (even doing so much as stealing someone’s boyfriend/girlfriend, wife/husband and/or fiance/fiancee is classified in God’s eyes as *stealing”), it WANTS you to lust, it WANTS you to envy things that belong to others, it WANTS you to hate, it WANTS you to cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend, wife/husband, or fiance/fiancee, it WANTS you to lie, it WANTS you to say the Lord’s name in vain. Lets face it, this dark world and the things OF this world are DESIGNED by Satan and his demons to try to suck your soul away from Jesus Christ! Think about it, folks!

“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

This is pure SPIRITUAL WARFARE……….a WAR FOR YOUR SOUL…….

The question is, who will win? Will Jesus Christ win your soul or will Satan win your soul?

The choice is up to you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.

For the people who die without Jesus Christ aren’t sent to hell and/or eternal condemnation by Jesus Christ by choice.  Those folks simply CHOSE to go there.

For we either CHOOSE to accept Jesus Christ or we CHOOSE to reject him. There IS no other way in this world but those 2 paths. Sorry guys but that’s the brutal reality of it all.

Remember that all paths that lead AWAY from Jesus Christ lead to Satan, which then leads to hell and/or eternal condemnation and that all paths that lead to truth lead to Jesus Christ, which then leads to everlasting life/eternal paradise with Jesus Christ.

When people die, they are sent to 1 of 2 places (eternal paradise with God/Jesus Christ) or eternal condemnation in everlasting fire) But the choice is up to YOU. Would YOU be willing to die without Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior? I wouldn’t. Those that die without ever having accepted salvation, trust, love, faith, obedience etc. in Jesus Christ will LOSE THEIR SOUL. FOR ETERNITY.

So please. I beg of you. Please cry out to Jesus Christ today and get to know him while there’s still time. We never know when we’re gonna die, just like we never know when this world’s gonna end.

Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only”.
